OLIPHANT I am looking for information about my grandfather, whose surname is Oliphant. He is of black mixed ancestry and from the general areas in SC of Newberry, Greenfield and Edgefield County. He married Lillian Moore-Jefferson,  who is my grandmother, born Oct. 30, 1890 and died May, 1976. I hope I have the year of birth correct.  Anyway, she was married previously to Clinton Jefferson by whom she had four daughters, Elizabeth, Carrie, Emma and Georgia. My father was born to her late in life and was her fifth surviving child. His name is Melvin Jefferson Oliphant and he was born in September, 1931. 5 Oct. 2001 P. Oliphant

All of the family were born in SC except for Alford, Vicey and Amos who were born in Georgia. I have been able to trace a Reuben, an S. , a John and and R. Osteen all living in Beaufort at various times between the 1810 and 1840 in the Census records. I am currently at a dead end and would greatly appreciate any assistance in solving this mystery. Thanks, Lee. (10/28/99 10:08:40 PM) Lee Gautreau
OVERSTREET I am looking for information on Mary Overstreet who was my Great Grandmother's sister. My Great Grandmother, Georgia Etta Mixon Reynolds was born in Hampton County on 4-1-1870 and later lived in Beaufort County. Her sister was mentioned in her obituary (12-18-1948). Overstreet is probably a married name, but not sure as Georgia Etta was possibly adopted by the Mixon family later. Any information would be helpful. (3/22/99 2:28:19 PM) Cheryl Hayes
