TAYLOR Col. Thomas Taylor (1743-1832) has been called the "patriarch of Columbia" since his plantation became the location of the new state capital. I am researching Col. Tom's descendants and need help tracing some of his lines. We are descended from Col. Tom's son, John, but some of the other lines are very sketchy. Any help would be appreciated.

*NEW* THOMAS - HALL I am looking for anyone who is related to SIMONE HALL or EFFIE THOMAS-HALL. They both were born in the 1800's. The only thing I know for now is the My great-grandmother Effie, died in the early 1970's. She, at the time resided at 2431 Park Street in Columbia, SC with her daughter Hattie Morgan. I know that our family attended Zion Hopewell Baptist Church in Gilbert, SC. So, I think that they must have lived in that area. If you anyone has any information, please contact me.

THORNTON I am looking for more information on a Thorogood (or Thoroughgood) THORNTON, born about 1831, who married a Katherine Mack. Thorogood is shown in census data for Richland Co. for a number of years (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.

He was killed in Sumter Co. 1838. Rhoda came to Texas with some of her family, stopping off in LA for awhile. It is possible John Trevathan's father was William, but no proof. Don't know anything more about Rhoda Leander Trevathan prior to her coming to Texas, except she was charter member of the Henderson Hopewill Primitive Baptist Church in 1827.

WAGES Seeking data on Dawson/Dorson WAGES and family-3 sons, Dawson, William, and Jacob. He made his will in Richland Co, SC in 1821- He mentions his wife. They appear to have come from Rowan Co, NC, then into Richland, Chester, Fairfield Co's of SC and track back to Carroll Co, MD. Dawson/Dorson owned a tremendous amount of land in Richland Co, (have all the land plats) and by the 1840s-50s, a long line of heirs were fighting over it. Related names: Chesley BOATWRIGHT; Samuel DENT; DUNCANs - one of them was Rebecca WAGES, married BOATWRIGHT, then married a WAGES-or we have 3 different Rebecca's....sigh..... Unless they tie into the SHELBYs, I have no connections to the WAGES. They are a complicated, fascinating family, that goes right into the burning of the Jackson Co, MS Courthouse, by the COPELAND-WAGES gang.
