Seabrook-Carter Family As a history exercise for my children, we have decided to trace our roots back to Allendale, South Carolina. The oral tradition as told to me by my mother is not too complete as regards dates, as very few of the family members of that time are now deceased. My recordings from my mother are as follows: "My Great grandfather was Willie Seabrooks. He was married to Mary Ann Seabrooks for whom I am named after. They had two daughters: Hattie and Nancy. As I can remember, I believe that Nancy died while young though I am not totally sure. When Hattie, my grandmother was young perhaps around 13-15, she married my grandfather, Herbert Carter. Hattie was born in 1900 or so so they would have married somewhere maybe between 1913 -1915. They had nine children of whom 6 lived. The six living children were Willie, Cornelia(called Sallie), Joe, Rosa(who is my mother), Anna, and Elizabeth. Due to a disturbance, my great grandfather Willie Seabrooks went to live in Savannah Georgia around 1923-1925 but the family settled in Allendale." Account recorded 2/26/02).  As you can see, the details are very scanty. The only other information that I can remember is that the family once resided at 923 Nixlane, Allendale South Carolina. I There were two houses on a piece of property I believed eventually owned by Mrs. Cornelia Layton one of the Carter daughters. If you can give me any suggestions as to how to further carry out a search, I would appreciate it.  This information was orally told to me on: February 26, 2002 By: Mary A. Ford(My mother) From Columbia, S.C. to Georgia.  3 Oct. 2003 RC Payne

Sheppard Just found the Allendale & Barnwell SC web site. I am interested in the following Barnwell Baptist Assoc. sessions 1871 - 1874 and the pastor M. R. Snares or Suares. I have seen this spelled two different ways even on one of the sessions you have posted.  My interest in this pastor is that he is on the 1870 Barnwell SC census with a wife Angeline L. age 42, keeping house. Also there is a Walker Sheppard, age 13, as "house help". I found the Rev. Suares mentioned at least once on each of the Barnwell Baptist Association meetings and sometimes twice on the page. I would like to know which church he pastored and if the Sheppards were members there.  Also on the Barnwell 1870 was an Ann Sheppard as head of the household with a son, George age 12 as an apprentice. I believe she was the mother of Walker and that George was his brother. I would like to know if they were related and who was the father. By 1900, Walker's name is spelled Shepherd on the Beaufort SC census. He had married Lucy Ann Brunson. She is of the Savage- Jackson- Brunson line of Barnwell/Allendale area of SC. I cannot find anywhere when Walker died but by 1910 Lucy had remarried a William West of Screven Co. Ga.  I wonder if Guy Ferguson would have this information as he is related to Lucy Brunson Shepherd. Also on the 1880 census of Beaufort SC census I found an Ann Shepherd in the household of William Clark with a spouse Jane and several children. Ann Shepherd was listed as the mother-in-law. Is she any relation to you?  Anxiously awaiting your reply. Please send reply to my email address  20 June 2005 Tempie C. Drescher

SOUTHWELL I am descended from J.L. Southwell and wife Mary Roberts Hylton. Do you have any information on their marriage? I am related through their son Wilson C Southwell. Do you have any information on him?  10 Oct. 2003 Cindy Jones
SOUTHWELL SOUTHWELL, John marr. HYLTON, Mary 09/10/1812 in Bulloch County Georgia. This is his second marriage. His first marriage was to Eleanor Connelly. They were married in South Carolina around 1806 in Orangeburg or Barnwell County. I believe this is the same John Southwell that was the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Myrick and Edward Southwell. Do you have any information on John Southwell?  If Edward Southwell died 1778. Winton Co. then how could he father John Southwell b<1787, illegitimate child of Elizabeth Merrick? Is it possible that John is the son of Edward Jr. instead of Old Edward? Found in the bible of a descendent of John L. Southwell was the following : John L. Southwell born June 26, 1782, died November 8, 1843. This date corresponds with the date of Elizabeth's son but not with the recorded date of birth of Old Edward's son John Southwell. This would make more sense, especially since Edward Jr's brother William also fathered an illegitimate child with Elizabeth. On additional question: concerning the middle name of John Southwell, where is there documentation of his middle name being Lafayette? I have only found records of John Southwell, John L. Southwell and J.L. Southwell. 10 Oct. 2003 Cindy Jones
