John H. Sammons
2011 Feliz Road, Novato, CA 94945-1702 [415] 897 5845
I am seeking information on my GGFather Robert Wylie Sammons whom I think could have been the grandson of Hansel Sammons (1755 - 1835) who was born in VA and died in Darlington, SC.
I think that RW could possibly have been the son of either J.H. Sammons born in 1830 or Lewis Jones Sammons born in 1832. I base this on the birthdate of my GGMother Elizabeth Thomas who was the daughter of John Thomas and Mary Fields of Darlington. Elizabeth was born on August 22, 1831.
My GF, John Hansel Sammons, was born on November 11, 1859 and his brother James Wylie Sammons was born on June 6, 1861. We do not know where they were born and the family spoken history has either Spartanburg or Darlington and that there may have been one or two sisters. We know that they were orphaned sometime after 1861 because in 1869 the boys were brought to TX by Elizabeth's brother, John Wesley Thomas. They travelled from Darlington to Charleston then to Galveston, TX by ship.
Any help or guidance will be appreciated.

All three are buried in Randolph County, Alabama. Charlotte was b.1805 and Rachel was b. 1803 Peter was b. 1798. Have other information and am willing to share with family members. June 1998

For those who may have corresponded with her, I thought you would want to know that Ms. Connee Brown Kroeger passed away on 9/16/2006. She had researched these families for 20 years and asked Ken to continue her pursuit.

Sallie STEWART b. c. 1774 was my ancestor who married John STANLEY. They were supposed to have lived in the Darlington District. There is a deed there Feb. 17, 1806 between John STANDLEY, whom I believe to be mine, and James STEWART for 225 acres on Lake Swamp. Other STEWART names in this deed were John STEWART, Jr. and Shadrach STEWART. Other deeds indicate nearby STEWARTs named Charles, Robert, and Elias. Has anyone done any research on this STEWART family? I believe they are also my STEWARTs. Nov 2006

Alexander Hill Stuckey, Jr.
1930 Dunmore Lane, Clemmons,NC 27012
My GGrandfather, Alexander Fairchild Stuckey, was born about 1841 and died in 1901. We are posting this to Darlington County since we don't know for sure where he was born. He was in the Civil War, Co A, 14th SC Infantry. Had a mini ball hit him in the head at the Battle of the Wilderness. It went thru and he was reported as dead, but was picked up, taken to a hospital in Virginia somewhere and survived. This information was found on the net in the Reminisces of John Wesley Alexander. He married Eliza Jane McKnight and they had 13 children, the oldest one died young. GG died in 1901 and is buried in the Cook Family Cemetery near Cadiz, SC. His wife was living in Lamar SC with my Grandfather Henry Ashton Stuckey, (I believe he was the 3d child born to that union)and she died in Dec 1944. She is buried in Lamar Cemetery. GGrandad is listed in the Civil war Veterans book as a First Sergeant. We (my Mother and I) are trying to find out who their parents were, and whether or not they had brothers and/or sisters. Any assistance that can be given will be appreciated.
