PAYTON / PEYTON I am looking for information on Leroy R. Payton or his father Isaac Payton (may have gone by Peyton) circa 1880 in Hampton County. As they were African-American, they may show up in slave records of prior periods. The 1880 census shows an Isaac Peyton age 44 with spouse Dinah White and 6 children at the time. Leroy was born later, in 1892, possibly in Barnwell or Orangeburg County.  2 Aug. 2002 Mark Payton

PEEPLES I am trying to ascertain the particulars of an incident in Hampton County on July 2, 1856, involving the husband of my great(x4)-aunt. His name was Jesse Williamson Peeples, and hers Catherine Rebecca Harrison Peeples.  On Jesse Williamson Peeples' tombstone, located in the Lawtonville Cemetery in Estill, is an epitaph that reads, in part: SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF THE LAMENTED JESSE WILLIAMSON PEEPLES; REPRESENTATIVE OF ST. PETERS PARISH WHO WAS MURDERED ON THE 2ND DAY OF JULY A. D. 1856, IN THE 43nd YEAR OF HIS AGE.  HIS LAST AND ONLY DYING WORDS WERE "LAY ME DOWN, ALFRED MARTIN HAS CUT ME AND STABBED ME TO PIECES."  I have tracked down the name Alfred Martin to a person whom I believe to be the correct person referenced in the epitaph, namely Alfred Maner Martin, who is buried in the Bostwick Cemetery in Hampton County.  Would you know of any local history sources that could possibly shed some light on what happened that led to the events on July 2, 1856? I believe that there was a duel between the two men, but I base this belief only on what seems to be implied by the epitaph and my knowledge of the station of the two men.  28 June 2004 J.

PHILLIPS I am  interested in Phillips in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, Jasper, and Old 96. I can connect a Dempsey Phillips with the Jacob Phillips and others in these areas. I was trying to locate Civil War records for John, Preston and Jacob Phillips They were brothers of my husband's grandfather, Bartley Phillips out of Hampton County. We traced the original land grant to 1000 acres outside Grays, SC. But the Phillips had come to the area from further up, I believe. From Barnwell, Bamberg, Old 96 and Anderson areas....Maybe NC before that. I have much info and pictures to share and 10,000 names dates etc. 7 Jan. 2001 D. Phillips

PORCHER Dear Historian, I am trying to find information on my Grandfather, James William Porcher, He was from Hampton and married my Grandmother, Irene Olive Tiller; Lexington Georgia, in Oglethorpe county around 1906-1909. His sister married Governor Miles B. McSweeney. His tenure was 1899-1903. Her name was Mattie Mae Porcher, or Martha, or the French way of Marthe.I have a beautiful watch given by the governor to my Grandfather. My Grandfather’s Mother was Katharine Davant. I believe my Great Grandfather’s name was Francis Porcher. I do know we are from the original Huguenots who came in the 1600’s. My early settlers were Issaac Porcher and Jean Davant around 1687. If there is a local historian who is a Porcher or Davant, I would like to make contact with them and try to pull my heritage together.  Please forgive my lack of knowledge in approaching this plea for assistance. 28 Jan. 2010 Mr. Davant Turner
PRICHER Thomas Pricher/Pritcher married Susannah Murdaugh around 1825. Most of the Murdaughs I have located have been from Islandton, which I know is just inside Colleton County. Two of my ancestors are named Varn, which I know to be a Hampton County surname. My searches in Colleton County for information on the Pricher/Pritcher name have turned up little. I am supposing that this may be because they were actually located in Hampton County, possibly with another spelling of the name. Any information that any one could offer would be appreciated.  (8/15/97) Jerry Pricher
PRIESTER Andrew Priester, first found in Beaufort County in the 1820 Census and last listed in the 1860 Census in Hampton County, Prince William Parrish.

I am seeking information on these and other family links. (12/7/97 12:49:41 PM) Randall W Davis

PRIMUS I am searching for information on my Great Grandparents Madison PRIMUS and Alice PRIMUS. To the best of my knowledge, they were born in Yemassee around the 1850's maybe. I have no idea what Alice's maiden name was. I know of at least one child that they had (I'm sure there were others). She was my Grandmother Clementine Primus Stevens. I believe Clementine had a half brother named Daniel Priester who moved to Philadelphia. Clementine married a man named Thomas Stevens (Stephens) and they had at least 8 children: James, William Jessie, Zackie, Lillie Mae, Mary, Alice, Pauline and Barnettia. Clementine and her son Zackie are buried next to each other at Zion AME Church in Yemassee, where her name reads: Cleam Stevens. Any and all information on Madison and Alice PRIMUS would be greatly appreciated. (3/14/99 5:14:17 PM) Yolanda Mitchell
