||Thank you for co-ordinating the Beaufort County data. Could you direct
me to someone who would have access to a list of Union Civil War prisoners
who were buried in the Beaufort National Cemetery in Beaufort, SC. I am searching
for an ancestor who survived Andersonville and was taken to Millen, GA as
a prisoner. He is recorded as having died in Millen while a prisoner. As
far as my research has taken me, all the soldiers buried in Millen, GA were
disenttered after the war and placed in the Beaufort National Cemetery. I
would assume that there was a mass burial but I thought there may have been
a general list of names for Civil War Soldiers that were buried there. Is
there anyone you ould direct me to that ould obtain that kind of information?

||Hopkins family - probably because they headed for Georgia in 1805. They
supposedly had a plantation on the May River near Bluffton. Francis Hopkins
b. 1772 to Francis Hopkins and Mary Martinangel is the one who left. I'm
looking for information to authenticate that Francis the elder was his father
and that he was a rear admiral in the British navy. Trying to connect him
back to merry old England. 26 May 2006
||I am coming to the coastal area of GA this weekend and could come up
to Beaufort on Sunday if there would be opportunity to research an ancestor
with whom I'm at a dead end. His name if Francis Hopkins and the story
is that he was an admiral in the British Navy under Sir Peter Parker. Also,
he is supposed to have been born in England, died in 1780 and been buried
in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, West Indies. He was a person of some means
as the family did have a plantation on the May River near Bluffton.
Francis (d.1780) Sr. married Mary Martinangel, daughter of Peter
Martinangel of Daufusky Island. Peter was supposed to have been killed by
the "Bloody Legion" and this fits as Daufusky was reputed to be a Tory location.
They had a son Francis Jr. (b.1772) who married Rebecca Sayre. After
his father's death, Francis Jr. and Rebecca lived with Francis Sr' widow
Mary at the May River plantation. In 1804 a terrible storm wiped out much
of their property and they moved to McIntosh County, GA which that branch
of my family still considers it's ancestral home. I am seeking information
about Francis Sr. When and where was he born? Who were his parents?
Did he have other children? Verification of what we think we
know of him. I've searched the British web site to no avail. If
there's someway to research this on Sunday, I'd gladly make the detour up
there. July 2006

|HOUSE removed from the state and sold by Union Army c1870
||The present owners of a house in Old
Town, Brunswick, GA (national register district) would like to uncover the
original owners of this house. It is said that the house was bought from
the Union Army. The written information is a bit more vague in reference
to the government. The house has been modified multiple times over
its long life and most recently, badly and sadly neglected. The story
is that the house was constructed from one or
more of the surplus government buildings removed from Hilton Head Island
or Port Royal. After the war the community was abandoned and the houses and
other buildings were dismantled or moved. Several of them were barged to
Brunswick on schooners, in a complete or nearly complete condition, where
they became new homes. It was purchased by John Russell Cook (sometimes
referenced as John Radford Cook but usually just as John R. Cook). Although
the great grandsons of John R are still living in Brunswick and have an extensive
historical account of the family, we do not have the purchase records.
There is written account of multiple homes being shipped down via schooner,
but this is the only one that has an active oral history - and possibly written
history - of that journey. John R Cook came from Worcester, MA with
his brother, George, and other close family and friends for Reconstruction.
They became thriving businessmen and well-respected and loved statesmen and
citizens of the community. The receipt is extant for the purchase of
the land where the house sits today. It was bought on a three-year note for
$650 on Feb 13, 1871 and was paid in-full on March 21, 1874. Logic would
suggest that the house was moved here and onto the property sometime
during/around that period. 7 Dec. 2013

on Talbot Island, Duval Co., FL, in 1837. He was married to Jane HARVEY,
dtr of John who had a link of some sort with both Savannah, GA, and Effingham
Co., GA. We believe John Carroll HOUSTON's father was also John HOUSTON (married
to a Mary) who died by the 1790 census. We have lots of information and documents

23 Inf Reg, 40th Inf Division. Date of loss: Missing in action in North
Korea, declared dead. When he entered service he gave Beauford County,
SC as his official home of record. When the Korean War ended the enemy
never returned or accounted for over 8,000 of our servicemen. They died in
their hands. That was over 50 years ago. Since that time DNA has been perfected
and also they are recovering remains in North Korea. Our government is obligated
to return those remains to the proper family. DNA samples have been obtained
from most of the families of these missing soldiers. For various reasons
some families have not been located. There are 51 families in South Carolina
that have not been located. There is one family from Beauford County that
have not been located. When the remains are recovered and identified
they will be returned to the family for proper burial. I am just an old (76
years) Combat Veteran out of the Korean War and thankful that I did return.
