Hello, everyone! Happy New Year! I'm trying to find more information about my third great-grandfather Abraham Richardson & his siblings, if he had any. Abraham Richardson was born in SC; lived in Hartsville. I'm also trying to find more information on his children. I have information on one of his sons, Colonel Richardson, who is my second great-grandfather. But the rest of Abraham's children, I cannot find no information on descendants to save my life. There was Daniel, Margaret, Priscilla, Colonel(I have info on his line), Mary, Henry, Martha, Catherine, and Charles Richardson. I believe I have them in order. I also do not have no information on the women; whether they married and if they did marry, their married names. Sigh. Can anyone on here help? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Researching the Anthony Funderburgh line in Edgefield S. Carolina as far back as 1790. Anthony furnished supples during the Revolution. I can find records that he was in Wilkes Co., Ga in 1773. from Land Records. He went back to Edgefield by 1790 and died in 1809.  His son, Isaac was said to have been a Captain in the Revolution but that has not been proven. Anthony married a McCarty and his son, Isaac, later also married a McCarty. Most likely a cousin. Would be interesting to find more info on these two. I have just joined this website and look forward to sharing and finding new info

Is there any one researching Hampton and Jasper Counties, SC
Comment by Sharon Attaway Brogdon on April 12, 2011 at 8:30pm
I am searching for information on Joseph or William Attaway in Spartanberg, SC. I have 1830 census showing them there but would love to have marriage or probate records. Some think they moved to GA after this but not sure if they are talking about the same people.  Thanks for any help.

Thomas Ladson Boone born in Sumpter SC moved with his family to Galveston TX.  Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Please Volunteer to Index These Records to Make Them Searchable!

-Newly Digitized Records Preserve the Names of More Than 30,000 Slaves -

We are very excited to announce a collaboration with, the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, FamilySearch and Lowcountry Africana, to digitize every surviving estate inventory for Colonial and Charleston South Carolina from 1732 to 1872, as well as selected Bills of Sale for the same period, in a FREE collection!

When the project is complete, the names of more than 100,000 SC ancestors from Charleston and surrounding counties will be indexed in a FREE online collection, preserved for generations to come. The South Carolina Department of Archives and History holds the original records and has provided access to them and given their kind permission to place them on the Internet, FamilySearch International donated the copies of the microfilms to be digitized, contributed the time and expense to digitize the films and host the collection, and we in the research community can index the records to make them fully searchable.

It will take many willing hands to index the records to make them fully searchable. Every name and place that we index in a document will enable researchers to discover that document via a Google (or other search engine) search, and's search engine.
