PALMER I am interested in knowing more about CHARLES PALMER listed on the 1790 census of Beaufort Co. SC. I have been trying to find out more about my ancestor SAMUEL PALMER who may be connected to Charles Palmer. Samuel's first and only son was named Charles b. 1795 and it is a naming pattern in the Palmer family. I do know that Samuel Palmer married Anne Brunson, dau. of John Brunson who lived in SC but moved to St. George Parish c. 1780s. The Brunson family was from the Colleton/Beaufort area. Samuel died in 1814 in Screven Co. GA. The Brunsons had land in Screven, Burke, Bulloch, and Washington Co. GA. I did find a Samuel in Colleton Co. SC on the 1780 tax list. I am in hopes that someone who is kin to Charles may tell me if he had a brother or son named Samuel b. c. 1750s. I can't seem to find any material on this Palmer family. I would appreciate any help.

POPE My 2X gt-gdfather WILLIAM STUART POPE 1789-1837 settled in Jackson County, FL about 1823. He likely went to FL from a home in Beaufort Co. SC (I note with great interest that there is a Pope Cemetery in Beaufort) and is likely also to have had at least 3 siblings: a Col. John Pope, a sister ? Elizabeth Pope Tanner (both settled in FL?) and a brother named Green Pope who went to TX in the 1820s. My lineal ancestors from William Stuart Pope 1789-1837 to present all are buried in Sneads, FL (or have graves reserved there!) but William Stuart, thought to have gone from Beaufort to Jackson Co. FL is my "brick wall" tracing backward. We are thought to be descended from very early (1630s?) Popes from England who went first to VA and, from there, gradually southward. Any information as might aid me in tracing back beyond William b. 1789 Beaufort? wd be greatly appreciated. (1/4/00 9:10:04 PM) Geoffrey Pope
