||I am interested in knowing more about CHARLES PALMER listed
on the 1790 census of Beaufort Co. SC. I have been trying to find out more
about my ancestor SAMUEL PALMER who may be connected to Charles Palmer. Samuel's
first and only son was named Charles b. 1795 and it is a naming pattern in
the Palmer family. I do know that Samuel Palmer married Anne Brunson, dau.
of John Brunson who lived in SC but moved to St. George Parish c. 1780s.
The Brunson family was from the Colleton/Beaufort area. Samuel died in 1814
in Screven Co. GA. The Brunsons had land in Screven, Burke, Bulloch, and
Washington Co. GA. I did find a Samuel in Colleton Co. SC on the 1780 tax
list. I am in hopes that someone who is kin to Charles may tell me if he
had a brother or son named Samuel b. c. 1750s. I can't seem to find any material
on this Palmer family. I would appreciate any help.

||Seek info on Parnells that may have been slave owners in Beaufort, SC
between 1820 and 1850. My family (the family of Pompey Parnell, a slave)
can trace its beginnings in the United States to Beaufort, South Carolina.
When the slave owner named Parnell moved to Florida, my great-great grandfather

This part of Florida is now considered the ancestral home of the descendants
of Pompey Parnell. Any genealogical information is greatly appreciated.

||My 2X gt-gdfather WILLIAM STUART POPE 1789-1837 settled in
Jackson County, FL about 1823. He likely went to FL from a home in Beaufort
Co. SC (I note with great interest that there is a Pope Cemetery in Beaufort)
and is likely also to have had at least 3 siblings: a Col. John Pope, a sister
? Elizabeth Pope Tanner (both settled in FL?) and a brother named Green Pope
who went to TX in the 1820s. My lineal ancestors from William Stuart Pope
1789-1837 to present all are buried in Sneads, FL (or have graves reserved
there!) but William Stuart, thought to have gone from Beaufort to Jackson
Co. FL is my "brick wall" tracing backward. We are thought to be descended
from very early (1630s?) Popes from England who went first to VA and, from
there, gradually southward. Any information as might aid me in tracing back
beyond William b. 1789 Beaufort? wd be greatly appreciated.

Mr. Pritchard was born in England, left there and came to SC. He left behind
