I am searching for any information you might be able to provide on the Paul family. The 1800 SC Census shows an Archibald and an Archibald Sen in Fairfield County, SC. and a William Paul in Chester Co. The 1810 Census shows an Archibald and an Archie still in Fairfield Co. and William still in Chester Co. The 1820 SC Census shows only an Archibald Paul ( Archie and William I believe left the state) in Richland Co., SC. The 1830 SC Census shows James Paul in Chester Co. and Joseph, Judith, and Sarah in Fairfield Co.

I am searching for my gggrandfather ----- Paul. I think that he had four sons, Archie, George, William, and Samuel and possiby two daughters, Martha and Isabelle. I only know that George was born in SC in 1822 and that Samuel was born in 1832 (family tradition has in GA). George's middle name was Williamson and that is a common name in Richland, Fairfield, and Chester Co. in 1830 ( with given names of Martha, William, Samuel). I have been made aware that there is a Paul Cemetery ( Anderson, and Lynn also called) near Richburg, Chester Co.

I understand that there were Pauls of Scotch-Irish descent, Presbyterian Dissenters, or Catholic/Reformed Presbyterians that settled in Chester Co. in the 1870's along Fishing Creek and Rocky Creek. (see Revolutionary War page section on Huck's Defeat.)

Any information on the Paul Family would be greatly appreciated.
