HALFORD I have been researching my family history since 1965 and am trying to link to my GG Grandfather and his connections to the low country and Jasper County. His name was Jefferson James Halford or James Jefferson Halford depending upon sources. The surname is sometimes spelled with two LL's as well. I have undocumented information that he owned and sold Oketee plantation after the war. 9 May 2001 David Cravey

HARRISON I am interested in any information concerning the ancestry and descendants of a Thomas Harrison, planter of Prince William Parish, Granville Co., SC. His home was probably in the vicinity of present-day Grahamville, Jasper Co, SC. In 1752 this Thomas was ordained a deacon of the original Euhaw Baptist Church, which was located about 6 miles east of Grahamville on Euhaw Creek. Thomas' first wife was a Mary ______, his second wife was Hannah Sealy. According to his 1755 will, Thomas' children were Henry, William, Thomas, John, Mikell, and Francis; no daughters were mentioned. One source, "The Beville Family" by Agnes B.V. Tedcastle published in 1917, suggests that Thomas of Euhaw was the son of William Harrison and Sarah Hawley, but this was not documented. If correct, Thomas' ancestry could then be traced back to Burr Harrison (son of Cuthbert) of Northern Virginia.My interest in Thomas of Euhaw relates to the possibility that I am a descendant of his son Henry. 9 May 2001 Julian R.
