550 - BOYD / MCCANTS - Does anyone know who is buried in the Boyd/McCants Cemetery. Near Spring Gulley, Btw, Kingtree, and Andrews, which I am guessing is in Williamsburg County, SC. Presently, we only know that John McCants married his second wife Susan Ann or Susannah Boyd Kerns in Jersey County, IL in 1874. Know that Susannah Boyd is the daughter of Jesse Boyd from Frederick, VA and granddaughter of Jesse Boyd and Margaret Luttrell of Frederick, VA.  Also know we have found only one sibling that appears to have stayed in Virginia. We also have reason to suspect that John McCants first wife was Margaret Taylor, who he married in 1848 in Greene County, IL.  In addition, Henry Taylor married Nancy McCants, 1848 in Greene County, IL and Samuel R. McCants married Jane Taylor, 1847 in Greene County, IL.  Know some of these McCants came from Kentucky. John McCants was born March, 1825 supposedly in IL to a Thomas William McCants who we have no history on at all. Then John McCants and his son moved to Bates County, MO where there was an Elias McCants, born 1792 in South Carolina living with his family. Also a Willim H. McCants and family. Not sure of relationship though one family historian thinks they were related. [email protected]

563 - SNOW / NESMITH / BARR /  LANFORD /  LEATHERWOOD - My 4thGGP were William Snow and Margaret Nesmith. Wm. died in 1807 . It is known that they were in the Pee Dee District and Indian Town areas of Williamsburg. I have run up on some confusion as to there parentage. It has been proven to me that Margaret was the daughter of John Nesmith and Sarah Barr. John died on the ship before arriving from England. Margaret was one of their 4 children. Sarah later married John's brother Samuel. Margaret is often credited as being the child of her Stepfather /Uncle Samuel Nesmith.  William Snow was thought to have been the son of Nathaniel Snow Jr. by our Snow side per family papers. The NeSmith family feels that William was a Wm. Jr. and the son of Wm. Snow. Both men were the sons of Dr. Nathaniel Snow and Frances Chicken of Williamsburg. Can anyone help us prove who is his father?  Wm.'s wife, Margaret Nesmith Snow , came to Lowndes County Alabama with her son in the early 1820's. They settled first at Mount Vernon and later Dutch Bend.She died in 1832. I also research the Lanford and Leatherwood families from the Spartanburg, SC area. Dianne L. Killian
