BECKETT I am doing a family history search, and the information I have starts with Jeremiah (Jerry) Beckett. On the 1920 cencus report he was 45 years old which means he was born in 1875. His wife Eliza was also born in 1875. They lived in Hampton County, SC. I believe they were both born there also. I do know my Grandmother Inez Beckett Andrews was born in Hampton County. A town called Estill. My Grandfather Mackie Andrews also came from Estill. He was born in 1893. Their are many Becketts still living in Estill today. Also many were on the 1920 cencus report and listed some as Black, White, and many Mulatto. Please list my information. Hopefully this sounds familiar to someone. Also Good Hope Baptist Church seems to be the family Church. (11/5/98 9:43:28 PM) T. Carter

Thaddues Porter Blakewood; Joseph Alonza Blakewood; Frederick Augustus Blakewood; Harry Byron Blakewood; down to myself Steven Andrew Blakewood are the descendants in proper order. I have copies of the SC Census of 1840, 1850, 1860, & 1870 with names Blackwood/Blakewood. During 1859 or before some of the Blakewood family moved to Savannah, Ga.
