Mathews I am researching my father's family. His name was William Park Mathews, and his father was also William Park Mathews. The elder was married to Mary Brown and my father was born 31 Mar. 1914. I know that his mother was born in Agricola, Glascock Co. GA, but don't know the year. Evidently, my father's parents were divorced very unpleasantly, because there is no family record of any kind on Mathews, Sr. The closest I have come to valid information is the 1920 census, where a family group consisting of Mary Brown Mathews and William P. Mathews and thier son, William, Jr., age 6, was found. The record lists my grandfather as the proprietor of a metal trimming shop in Columbia, and my grandmother as a bookkeeper at another firm. My father passed in 1981 and my mother in 1993, and as far as I know, there are no siblings of my father to contact. Is there hope????   8 August 2002 Mary Mathews Sanchez

James Miles who died from a lightening strick in 1891, in Richland County. He married and had a family and when these children were grown, he married in later life having more children.

Milhous A property transfer for 400 acres on the Wateree River, from a 1750 grant to George Milhous Sr, then 1753 transfer to Robert Milhous to son John Milhous, then 1758 John Milhous and wife Abigail to Samuel Milhous, then 1768 Samuel Milhous to John Kershaw.  I am interested in the transfer from John Milhous and wife Abigail in 1758 to Samuel Milhous . I suspect that Samuel was their son. I wonder if John and Abgail could have had a daughter, Elizabeth Milhous, who was born early enough to have a son John Mickle, born in abt 1759.  If John and Abigail had a son, Samuel, who was receiving land in 1758, perhaps Samuel's sister, Elizabeth, could be delivering a child by 1759.  I believe that Abigail was born Abigail Sleigh.  My deceased wife, was descended from John Mickle of the Wateree River ferry Mickles and his second wife, ELizabeth (Starke) Peay. Elizabeth Starke was widow of George Peay when she married John Mickle (abt 1794 or 1795). I gather that her first husband, Peay, was a patriot, and that Mickle was not involved in the Revolution (perhaps then or once a Quaker).  I suspect strongly that John Mickle was son of Joseph Mickle and wife (likely Elizabeth Milhous, sister of Abgiail Milhous who married a Maxwell). These two Milhous sisters were apparently daughters of John Milhous and Abigail Sleigh.  My wife was descended from John MIckle (b abt 1759) and his second wife Elizabeth Starke through their daughter Mary Ann Mickle who married Rowlan Rugeley, son of a Tory, Col Henry Rugeley. If you have any thoughts on the date of birth of Elizabeth or Abigail Milhous (sisters), I would appreciate hearing them.  23 March 2005 Bill Reed

MILLS My gggrandmother was Martha Jane MILLS born 4 July 1835-38, maybe in Charlotte, NC, but I cannot prove it. We have a family ballad which says Martha came form the "North Carolina hills" and named her first son "Francis Marion" after the Swamp Fox. Oral tradition is that either her father or grandfather fought with Marion and were frontier scouts. Researching Mills, I have found three men, Hope Mills III (b. 1735, Jamaica, Queens Co., NY) and his sons, Amos (b. ?) and Thomas (b. 1760, NY) who fought in the 2nd SC Regiment, 3rd Company (Marion's Band) beginning 1775. Notes say Hope III and family came to SC prior to the Revolution. Notes say they settled "possibly near Colombia." I have quite a bit of info on Thomas, none on Hope III or Amos (except that Amos went to Hamilton Co., Ohio after the Revolution and freed his slaves there). I am looking for descendents/researchers of any of these lines. I am specifically interested to know the names of the children of Amos.

MOORE I am looking for information regarding the death of Hal Clark Moore. He was born 21 Jan 1873 in Ridgeway, Fairfield, SC, and died in Columbia, Richland, SC. and is supposedly buried in Blaney, Kershaw, Sc. He is reported to have been run over and cut in half by a train while working for the railroad. I would really like to find a printed obituary. He left behind a wife, Mattie Glover Moore, and 5-6 little girls, the youngest was only 4 months old, my husband's gg-graadmother, Thelma Moore. Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. (9/19/99 10:35:33 AM) Valeroia McIntyre-Pahl


am seeking information about birth/baptismal of ancestor Reese (Reece, Reice) Van (Vander, Vanderfer, Vanderveer) Morrel (Morrell, Murrell, Merril etc) born 4/1795 in "South" Camden District of South Carolina.  I suspect Dutch or French origins which may mean Reformed Dutch or Brethren Churches in the areas at that time.  I also suspect the Richland area of Camden District since Reese's final location of Dresden Tx near Waco/Corsicanna of Navarro Tx in 1845 was called Richland for a time.  I have seen a link of parentage to a Jonathan and Mary Morrel but failed to note that resource and it is unsubstantiated. I do see a John Morrel, Jonathan Morrell on the 1790 Fairfield Census as well as 1820, 1840 and 1850 Richland Census, and again there may be no connection.  Any information or direction in this quest would be greatly appreciated. 27 Sept. 2003 Marvin and Ann Lenz

I am searching for information on Daniel Muhlinghaus my ggggrandfather. He married Mary Ann Hodge in Columbia South Carolina on January 16, 1838. They lived in Columbia from 1838 to about 1851. They had three children in S.C. Sarah Adline, Henry Gero, and Ruth Lora. Henry died at the age of 6 and is buried in the Ebenezer Lutheran Church Cemetery.
