NEWMAN/DURANT- Can anyone tell me why Thomas NEWMAN and Henry Durand/Durant were listed twice on the 1790 SC census. They were in the Camden Dist, Clarendon Co. first living next to one another, and then they were listed later on Camden Dist, Claremont Co. On this one, Henry Durant, and then another family and then the Thomas NEWMAN. I suppose they could have moved or did Clarendon Co. become Claremont Co. for a brief time?

GROOMS-My great-grandfather James Alexander Grooms was born 10 Mar 1848 in Turbeville, SC. He married Elizabeth E. Locklear, daughter of Thomas Locklear. They are both buried at the Pine Grove Methodist Church in Turbeville. Only her grave is marked. I would like to identify his father. His mother was Martha Elizabeth Grooms.

CASSELS- My Cassels are proven to John Cassels b. 1744 who first arrives in Georgia in 1807 and takes a land grant for property in Baldwin, County (now Jasper, Co.) John and his wife have 6 children, Henry, Absolom, Levi, Rebecca, Elizabeth, and (Patsy? ) Henry my direct line and his wife Charlotte Jones have 7 children, Avington, Absolom, Mark, Benjamin, Robert, William and Rebecca.. The family moves from Jasper Co.GA (there may have been other moves prior to this) to LaGrange, Troup County, GA. And in 1850, four brothers are living there, as follows: Absolom, Benjamin, William and Mark Cassels with wives and children, also there mother Charlotte Jones. Henry, my direct line, and my grandfather moves to Angelina, Co, Texas and can be found in the 1860 Census with a Simeon Boykin.
I feel that my John Cassels born in 1744 is the son of Henry Cassels b.1710-1715 and Margaret Mitchell of Craven Co. South Carolina, a veteran of the Rev. war having fought with Francis Marion (the swamp fox) but I have not proven it yet to my complete satisfaction. But all dates appear to make this the case. One of the daughters, Lydia Cassels b.circa 1745 married Capt. Elias DuBose on Jan. 20, 1763 they had 11 children. If any of this family looks like it connects to your, please contact me and we can exchange information.
