Hello Ms. Austin.  Recently I was looking for my 4th great-grandfather, Stephen Redmond (Redman/Redmon) with an online search and one of the results was his name mentioned in "The Austin Collection" (page attached).  From that page it mentioned information that I did not know previously.  I was thrilled to see the names of his father and mother, John Redmond and Mary Lawson and it gave the same birthdate as the one that Stephen gave on his Revolutionary War pension request.  As you will see on the attachment I have underlined the information that I did not know before seeing this document.  I tried to search the Farnham Parish and Lunenburg Parish Registers, Richmond County, Va. but did not find the information about Stephen's birth.  I was able to see his father's birth date and his siblings and his father, John's marriage date to Mary Lawson but nothing about the birth of Stephen.  I got the impression that perhaps there were more registers that might have had the information about Stephen's birth but I could not find them.  Because there is such a controversy about Stephen's birth amongst those who are researching he and his family I was anxious to find the original documentation on his birth, like an image of the actual church register, that I could post online to at least attempt to clear up who his parents really are.  I am all about sourcing my information and for that reason I am contacting you to see if you could give me some directions on how I can find the original record that would show Stephen's birth date and names of parents.  As I mentioned I will attach the Austin collection page that mentions Stephen. I just think that there is another register I haven't been able to see or some pages are missing our of the scanned register.  I have underlined sections that I still have questions about but I can address that in another correspondence with you.  My e-mail is  I would really appreciate your help with this question.

"Images of Wills and Guardianships1736-1740".  Where can I get the names listed ? I am only interested in this database. I am researching George Helm who died in Charleston or the Jeffries Creek area in 1739-40.  He did inventories for J.P. Henry Gibbs in Berkely.  Charleston probate office does not have anything for him.  George was the second largest baker in Charleston. His sons may have been left on his plantation on Jeffries Creek. No death information, probate, estate settlement, inventory, burial, or death notice found.  This database is my last hope.  Thank you.

Ms. Austin,

I have a Boan, Bone, Boone connection in upstate South Carolina. I have read and re-read your Book "Bone Connection". 

I would really like to discuss the BOAN, BONE, BOONE, and other variations of the surname in upstate South Carolina, the Cheraw District. 

I have  researched for 40 years the first 25 at the LDS Family History Library while serving in the Air Force at Hill AFB, Ogden, Utah. 

My e-mail address is listed below. Thanks for your time.

Hello, Ms. Austin. I am a researcher interested in early Georgia. Are you by any chance the Jeannette Holland Austin who wrote Immigrants from Great Britain to the Georgia Colony? I assume you are. If so, thank you for the excellent, valuable work. I'm curious about the sources you used for certain individual citations. Would you be interested in corresponding about this? I hope so, and if you are, my email address is All best. Sincerely, John S.
