Hi Sonia,


My husband's mother family is from Abbeville, SC--the Marshall Family.  I notice on that you have published data from the 1860 slave schedule and a list of free African Americans on the 1860 census.  Is this the same info on or something else?  How can we get a copy of your work?

Hi Sonia,

I haven't worked on my genealogy for sometime as I started back to work full time and in Oct 2009 got a divorce and moved to an apt. I can tell you that I've traced my Foote line to Georgia, and I know that my 2x great grandpa George W. Foote was born in 1813 in Union County SC. His parents were James and Jane Mills (Rice) Foote. I think that there were a lot of Footes; Sonia my email address is Typing into this box is not easy - I have DSL and it is very slow trying to type. Contact me via my regular email. I will tell you what I have - I don't know if it will be helpful to you but we can give it a try.

Hi Sonia,

No, unfortunately. I have not run across an Simkins. I've searched many WALKER lines, postings, DNA databases and the best source so far has been the SCArchivesOnline. It's there I found several wills. And the information very relevant -- but no proof exactly who Elizabeth (Walker) Thornton's father is. The other very resourceful data are the Censuses. I looked for Walkers near my THorntons. This is the mostly family. I cross-reference it with wills and weed out the others. I have some "most likely" cases from using these sources and methods.

Hi Sonia,

My Footes as I have back tracked them go back from Georgia to Union County SC, then Chester NC, Fauguier and Prince William County VA. I know that they came from Cornwall England, by way of London approx 1686. As far as I know they were European American, but I don't know 100% as they have been here so long.
