ALLEN

Searching for information on Milly Allen who is shown on the 1830 Richland County Census on page 406. Her given name was Mildred. I have no access to the 1820 census to see if she showed up in there, but it is unlikely. I believe between 1820 and 1830 her husband either died or she divorced him. Her son, Nazareth was born in 1820 and his last name is Allen which normally would mean his father was named Allen too! I know that sometime after 1830 Milly married James Bass Honeycutt whose father, Douglas, is shown as being next door to her in the 1830 census. There is a Henry Honeycutt who apparently resides with Douglas and may have been his brother due to the ages shown. A William Allen is shown as being 60-70 yrs old on page 402 of the 1830 census and may possibly have been the father of Milly's first husband. Any help would be appreciated. Sept. 2005 Jimmy Allen

ARMSTRONG Seek to learn more information about the death of my husband's grandfather, Charles Cleon Armstrong, who died in Columbia in 1910. We know very little about his death, other than that he was shot by a bookkeeper at the Granby Cotton Mill, January 10, 1910 in Columbia, SC following an argument.  We have never been to this area and members of our family who have visited there in years past learned very little about his death. We have copies of newspaper articles from papers in Columbia and Atlanta about the incident, but little more. We understand that he was buried in or around Columbia and we are researching the following:  (1)Information about the Granby Cotton Mill - location, dates of existence, operations and history;  (2)Information about the possible gravesite of Charles Cleon Armstrong who died January 10, 1910 in Columbia, South Carolina;  (3)Any records or documentation concerning the trial of Mr. Aaron Howell, who shot Mr. Armstrong;  (4)Any records or documentation concerning Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong's life in Honea Path, South Carolina and Columbia, South Carolina.  Mr. Armstrong's wife and children were already living in Florida at the time and Mr. Armstrong was planning to rejoin them. Mrs. Armstrong (the former Clara Maude Hudson) remarried after his death and his child, Rapley Cleon Armstrong, knew very little about his father.   We have researched the Armstrong lineage extensively through U.S. Census records and various other sources but have found nothing other than a record of his marriage to Clara Maude Hudson in Honea Path, South Carolina, in 1899. We would appreciate any assistance you could provide in preparing for our trip to South Carolina to learn more about our family's history. 27 Sept. 2003 Karen Armstrong -Cummings

ASHFORD I am searching for birth parents of Charles Lee Ashford. He was adopted in Columbia SC in November 1950. There was no secret about the adoption- he has the "Title to Real Estate" which is the adoption paper as well as his original birth certificate.  He was born in Baptist Hospital on September 30, 1950 per the adoption papers (and 10/1 according to the birth certificate) to Dora Mae Ashford age 21 of 1717 Pickens Street and was named Charles Lee Ashford on the birth certificate.  Dora was the widow of Joseph Ashford age 32 who died March 15, 1950 (we THINK in a car accident)  We do not know where he died.  On the birth certificate Dora noted that both she and Joseph were born in New York (state only).  She states that Joseph was a "sargent in army" and that there is one other child living.  The baby was adopted by Howard and Alice Miles. Howard was stationed in Columbia. They renamed the child Mike. And when Howards service was over they returned to their home in California!  Howard and Alice have both died. They did have a birth daughter who vaguely remembers Mike being adopted. She believed that her mother, Alice, may have worked in the hospital where Mike was born and that that is how the adoption came about.She also believes that Joseph Ashford was killed in an auto accident, possibly with a girlfriend. She thinks that Dora may have been a waitress.  I have written to the National Records Center for military records. They could not locate anything.  I have contacted the Division of Vital Records in Columbia for Joseph's death certificate. They searched from 1935 to 1964 and found nothing. I wrote to The State Newspaper- their records didn't go past 1987 I called Ft Jackson for an obit or notice in the camp paper. Their records do not predate 1954.  I tried the Caroliniana Library at USC- their Ft Jackson papers are only for WWI and after 1968.  I tried the SSDI and discovered that prior to 1951 military and spouses weren't required to have ssn's I tried the 1930 census for a Joseph Lee Ashford (and variations) from New York and found no one even born in the correct year.  30 June 2004 Toby Ellen Brief

I would like to see these items returned to his family. 1 April 2001 E. Walton Lewis
