Comments:My paternal great grand father was John Lemuel George born in Anson County North Carolina October 10, 1817, married to Martha A. (Cox)?, born in Anson County North Carolina February 13, 1824.
I have an old book (Sherlock's Discourse on Death)inscribed "to Richard Naton? July 15, 1778 from Benjamin Adams. Also written on one of the pages is the name M.D. Williams.
My maternal great great grand father was Mathew Harbison, born May 1776, arriving with mother and siblings Robert, Jane, Rosanna, Margaret, and Elizabeth with widowed mother, Ann Harbison to Chester District South Carolina about 1781.
Other family names include Currie and Rankin. I have no idea from which portion of my family this book came.
I have run across the name of David George from Ninety Six District, South Carolina, a Loyalist during the Revolutionary War but have had no luck thusfar in connecting him to my family.

E-mail address: hughtengland@gmail.com
Comments:Decendent of Joseph England of Tryon County. He served as a juror during court sessions from 1762 to July, 1776. Joseph served on on Jury that was to establish the best route from the Little Broad River thru thur the gap in Kings Mountain. This might be the old road visable in the gap now that goes by Fergusons grave site. Joseph had a son named Charles England who is found in the 1790 census of Laurins County, SC. Charles is named in the court minutes of one session as being paid for a do skin as was Joseph. Have no information on Joseph after he sold 300 ac. in 1776. Think he might have moved away because of the war. Charles served in the American Rev. and listed as Rev. vet in the Ga. listings. He lived in Habersham County Ga. from about 1806 until at least 1832.

E-mail address: cshuford08@aol.com
Comments:I am researching the Falls family and I've hit a brick wall with Susannah Jerrill, Susanna L Jerrill who was married to John Falls - their son was Robert Grier Falls. Rumor is that Robert Grier Falls was killed by his brother-in-law James McHugh in a fight in 1880. I can't find any information to support that or can't find any information on Susannah L Jerrill past being married to John. Also in this same family tree shows that William Falls married Rebecca Falls - not sure if William Falls was a son or son-in-law that had control of Rebecca's legal rights. Can you help me find more information regarding the above. When I look at some maps, I find that it could be possible Susanna Jerrill was from England - no proof- also she married John M Falls with Lincoln Co, NC marriage bond dated 25 Nov 1828 She died after the 1880 Census of Cleveland Co. Can you shed some more light on this for me?

E-mail address: sherrygee@hughes.net
Comments:My interest in genealogy has been rekindled, due to all the information on the internet!
I knew that Margaret Dickson Covington, my g-grandmother's grandmother, was born in NC in 1830 - her tombstone says so. I knew her family moved to Cherokee County, AL about 1845, where she met and married Lewis H. Covington of SC, then moved to Lauderdale County, MS, where she is buried. There was an Andrew and Jane Dickson who lived close to her in the 1850 census, of age to be her parents. My g-grandmother told my mother that her mother was a Covington, her mother was a Dickson, and her mother was a Lee. I found Andrew Dickson in Lincoln County, NC in 1830, but no Lees were around. I found proof that Andrew and Jane were her parents from what looks like family Bible information.
To make a long story short, I found on the internet that Jane Dickson's maiden name was Wray, which sounds something like Lee, so I guess that's where the trouble was. She was the daughter of James Wray, and her mother was a Linton and apparently the daughter of a Samuel Linton.
I have a 4-generation picture of Margaret Dickson Covington (born in present day Cleveland County) and her daugher Amanda (my ancestor) her granddaugher Lillie (my g-grandmother's sister) and Lillie's daugher. This picture was taken about 1900 - it hangs on a wall with other ancestor pictures in my house - the period clothes are wonderful!
If there are any members of the Broad River Genealogical Society who are interested in the Wrays, Dicksons, or Lintons, I'd like to correspond with them. I'll also probably want to join.

My great grandfather James Washington was their oldest child and was in Cleveland County in 1860 with his wife Ann Elizabeth Berryhill and Lenora their oldest child. I believe Robert died between 1850 and 1860. I would like to learn where he is buried and who his father was. Also what was Ann's maiden name. I would like to share info with others researching this line. My info is all documented and proven. Thanks, Vivian Neal

Comments:Please chack out my website.. www.rivermist.us I am interested in finding out about the "lost treasure" of the Broad. "British/Indian Gold attack." There used to be a sign about it where the Greenway is now located. I am also interested in information about "fish traps" that are at the mouth of one of my creeks (Asheworth, I think). I am doing research on the Broad (Eswau Huppeday.. Line River) and own over a mile of river frontage below Duke Power on the #1 Township side. I plan to keep the area primative but have found numerous artifacts in the area and need some help identifying some of them. (i.e. a mud and rock chimney on my place that no one knows who built it nor why a rock wall is around about 50 acres of my property.)

If you can help me with any of this please contact me at guyhutchins@hotmail.com or call (704)786-8500. Thanks, GUY

Housand and Francis Street
Samuel and Susannah Hamrick
Housen and Levicey McBrayer
William and Easter Suttle
Samuel and Mary Jane Walker
Charles and Viola Hutchins
Samuel and Elizabeth Goeke

You have a great site. If there are articles or books that the society could recommend that would be great.
