Late 1800-s into early 1900-s.  I am writing a book for the History Press about the town of Blythewood and this school is a part of our lost history. I am desperately trying to find out more.  It is referenced on page 11-The year 1874, The Barnwell Baptist Association 1866-1875. They speak of many female colleges  Please help me-being a Baptist School-I think-because it was related to Sandy Level Baptist Church-it should be recorded somewhere.  I am also a local journalist and my community is begging me for this story!   Any information Historical or otherwise is appreciated!  June 2008 Mickey Smith-Jolly

BROOKER I am trying to find out the name of the parents/siblings of William Brooker who married Margaret Carter in Tattnall County, GA on 13 July 1825. The marriage records has Brooker spelled Brookes...the r must have looked like a s. They moved to the Tampa area in Florida around 1840. William was my grt, grt grandfather. I think the Brookers were up north possibily in Philadelphia, then came to SC before or right after the Revolutionary War , and then into GA ( my William Brooker--misspelled Brookes on marriage certificate-- and Margaret Carter were there in 1825) and finally William and Margaret moved to the Tampa area in FLorida around 1840. However, I have not been able to find the connection to the GA or SC Brookers. I know there are 3 sets of Brookers: one group is Black, one group is German who originally spelled their name Brocker, and my group are the old English settlers/pioneers.  January 2005 Judy Berchak

BRYAN There was a Lewis Bryan(t), possibly junior, in the will of Lewis Bryant of Barnwell Co, SC. He was also listed in the Estate sale of this older Lewis Bryant, presumed but not proven to be the Father.  Lewis Bryant, (Jr), was married to a Patience _______, b. about 1822.  This is the couple that showed up in Jackson Co., GA in the 1840 Census.   He then was listed as Lewis E. Bryant, b. SC in 1820, which makes it very reasonable to believe that he was the right on. Unfortunately, I've looked everywhere in SC and have NOT been able to find a Lewis E., nor a marriage to a Patience.29 March 2007 Jimmy Bryant
