Jasper Co. Historical Society Cemetery Book If anyone owns the cemetery book that's for sale by the Jasper Co. Historical Society, would you mind telling me if any Fells are in it? Unless they are, purchasing the book would not be helpful to me. I'm especially interested in John "Johnnie" William Fell who died in 1987 and was the owner of the Palms Restaurant & Motel in Ridgeland years ago. Thank you.  27 Sept. 2003 BARBARA DUPRE
CLELAND JOHN CLELAND was born Feb 19, 1839, in the Beaufort District. Some sources say he may have lived near the Ridgeland/Gillisonville area, which I understand is in the JASPER county area. I'm seeking information on his parentage! There was a JOHN CLELAND with a family in the S.C. 1840 Census, but no evidence in 1850. In an application for Civil War pension in 1900, John Cleland stated that he came to Pierce County, Georgia in 1847, but no evidence in Georgia 1850 census. He was found in Pierce County, Georgia in the 1860 census married to Elender (believed to be SMITH-not confirmed) They named their first son HANSFORD, apparently after a relative.... their second child was named MARY. This was a real patriot of the Civil War cause, serving 3 1/2 years in Northern Virginia while Sherman was marching through Georgia and S.C. He was at the Appomatix surrender. In Georgia he was associated with the family SURNAMES of RIGGINS, LUGG, ELIZABETH RICE YOUMANS, JAMES S. YOUMANS. http://members.aol.com/tomcle2/cle_john.html (5/28/97) Thomas E. Cleland

Confederate Hopsital in Grahamville I am trying to find information about a Confederate Hopsital that was located in Grahamville, SC. Do you know if there is a cemetery for this hospital or where they buried their dead? I am researching the 25th NC and several of the soldiers died at this hospital and I am trying to find their burial place.  Any help or information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. 27 Sept. 2003 Lisa H.

COX Seeking info on Eli COX who died before 7 Mar 1836 leaving two children: Richard Asa Cox b.4 Feb 1815 d. 19 May 1884 and Franklin K. Cox b. 28 Jan 1817 d. 8 May 1859. Franklin K. Cox was appointed a guardian, Jesse Davis, upon his father's death and later married Joseph Ann Elizabeth Lee, daughter of Joseph and Catherine Parker Lee of Sylvania, GA. A letter written by Eli's grandson indicates the town the family may have been from is Brett, SC although that town doesn't seem to be in existence today (Any clue as to what it's name is now?) Other info implies the family was from the area in SC across from Effingham, Co., GA which would be Hampton or Jasper counties today, but Beaufort county back in 1836. I'm willing to share Cox info from this time period forward with interested parties. (4/30/99 10:05:54 PM) Katherine Cox Thacker
