TAYLOR / CENTER
|In the History of Richland County by Edwin L. Green, p. 80, it mentions
that, John Taylor, acquired land [May 1771] on Main road from Weaver's Ferry
to Camden on Little Cr. next to NATHAN CENTER and others. I found also, that
NATHAN CENTER married Martha Taylor, a sister to Col. Thomas Taylor. In the
Will records, Apt. 14, Pck 471, it was found that NATHAN CENTER died Jan
1783. I am trying to locate any information about Nathan
Center's service as a Commissary with James Taylor under Sumter. After
Center's death, Martha remarried to GEORGE WADE and reportedly resided in
the Columbia area. Any information about her and her children, Elizabeth
Center, Nathan Center, Jr; John Center or William Center would be greatly
appreciated. 19 April 2002

||I have been trying to find out where the extinct County Pendleton. S.C.
was located. I have a relative located there in the 1810 census.
I have also been trying to find out if there was a technical type school
near Colombia S.C. in the 1810-1830 era. I have three ancestors that were
trained somewhere in Weaving, Pottery and Shoemaking. One of them had a son
born in or near Colombia, S.C. in 1819 and his father being there in some
type of technical school is the only thing that is logical. 5 March 2008

||I have traced an ancestor to Richland County in 1790. His name is Arthur
Thompson, son of Hezekiah Thompson and Charity Hinton Thompson of Bertie
County NC. Arthur appears on the 1790 census for Richland County, (but
he now spells the name without the P i.e. THOMSON). The census record has
no indication of township or other location identifiers. However, I
have reason to believe his land was on The Wateree River near to the confluence
with The Congaree. Arthur's brothers, Noah and William also inherited land
in this area after Hezekiah's death in 1773. With that background info,
here are my questions: - Where can I go to access the deed books for 1790
and earlier? I want to backtrack through the deeds in order to find out who
Hezekiah acquired the property from and how. - Are there qualified
researchers out there who might provide deed backtracking services for a
fee? August 2006
||Seek info on a Thorogood (or Thoroughgood) THORNTON, born
about 1831, who married a Katherine Mack. Thorogood appears in the census,
Richland Co. 1830, -40, -50,.. which appear to confirm his father was also
named Thorogood THORNTON. It seems possible that Thorogood (Sr.) was son
of a Phineas THORNTON but this is a guess at this point. Appreciate any leads
others can provide. I also have no detail on ancestors of wife Katherine
Mack. (5/18/98 10:15:31 PM)

the corner of Senate & Marion Streets in Columbia. If this is true then
could someone tell me their hours of operation & do they allow the public
