2x great grandfather is Sam Moore of Fairfield, Township 3. Born approximately 1886 and married Mattie Gaither. Interested in getting any additional information on the Moore line. Another 2x great grandfather is William Lightner, sometimes spelled Leitner. I see him in Fairfield Township 2 in 1920 married to Lizzie Griffin. I'm interested in learning more about the Lightner/Leitner line. My FTDNA kit number here is B256081 and T171845 on Gedmatch. I also have an AncestryDNA kit on Gedmatch. It is A190365.

I am looking for my birth mother. She and or her family is from the Columbia, SC area. I was born in Charleston SC Feb 1970. Her family names include Sharpe and Newman. I have matched with some 3rd cousins but have not been able to get any closer.

Hey, my daughter's name is Ansley too and though she was not named for Ansley the surname it might be a clue for you. I know it's a long shot but sometimes things hide in plain sight like you might have been named Ansley after a surname. Good luck to you and don't give up and peg the needle looking like my Ansley does most times ; ) Oh and have you thought about doing the Mitochondrial Test that traces a person's mother's line back in time ?

Looking for marriage information on Tyrus Bell Sr. (LV6M-5X7 familysearch index #) 1799-1855 and Delphia 1978-1850 (LVNB-BQF)? We are looking for Delphia's maiden name and birth info. Was she adopted? Was she born in Fairfield Co or another county? First child born 1826 prior dates. We are looking for birth records of two children Martha Jane Bell about 1829 and Tyrus Bell Jr. born about 1836 possibly in Louisiana where the family moved but not sure when. Asa Bell Sr. was father to Tyrus and a minister in the area but why can't I find his children marriage records and if children were baptized etc... in that church records or other church records? I used to have marriage records for Asa and Nancy Anne Arledge but now can't put my hands on that so if you know of record, please share.

I'm looking for information about the family of Rev. Nicholas Roberts, born ca. 1748, possibly in Virginia, and died in Fairfield District in November of 1843. He was the pastor of Beaver Creek Baptist Church for over 32 years. I am hoping to find someone or something that will help me trace my paternal line even farther back. Our Roberts line is Y-DNA haplogroup I-M223, possibly Welsh. Any other relatives of Nicholas here?

REYNOLDS, MONTGOMERY, SCOTT, NASON, RICE, ASBURY FORD, MCGILL, HAMILTON A SHORT HISTORY AND THUS MY DILEMNA: I am looking for parents and siblings of William Reynolds, b circa 1785, Fairfield District. My Reynolds family line appears to be at a dead end in Fairfield District, South Carolina. I have a few ideas but have unable to find proof. I am hoping that with this Fairfield DNA PROJECT, I may reach new ears. My brother and I have tested with Ancestry and I have added our results to both FamilyTreeDNA and GEDmatch. My brother's Kit No. is B345528. My Kit No. is B339318. I am looking for connections and would be most appreciative of any leads or thoughts. Thank you. William Reynolds of Fairfield South Carolina, died 1817, and was the 1st husband of Elizabeth Jean (Betsy) Montgomery, Their issue: McComb (or Malcolm) Henry Reynolds (1812-1899), William (c1814-?), and my GGG Grandfather Hugh Montgomery Reynolds (1818-1893). Some of the Montgomery's are buried near Winnsboro, South Carolina at the Brick Church also known as Little River Church and today known as Ebeneezer Presbyterian - Fairfield County. My ancestors traveled on to Lawrenceville, Gwinnette Co, GA, Troupe County, GA, then to Starkville, Oktibbeha Co MS, then on to Camden, Ouachita Co, AR...some back to MS, others to Texas. Watercolor above was done by a cousin - from a photograph of my G G Grandfather William Henry Reynolds (1842 - 1917), grandson of the above William Reynolds who died circa 1817.

See the comment I posted under Connie H Money. I have wondered (only wondered) at times if my family was connected to the Reynolds family. I don't have any info on them. It seems that name pops up from time to time associated with the John Smith family. I live in Ga. Some of my ancestors also moved to Ms, then Tx, and then Ar and then Ok and back to Ms. Some went to Al first. I'll check on Ancestry to see if there is a match. It would show up better there because of the type of test we did there.

I did check only the number of pages of DNA matches to Reynolds on ancestry and there are pages and pages. I did see one Debra Reynolds but as you see the spelling is different. If we are a match on there, it will be a EH, WB, AH or MJE(could be ME) administered by Kathryn Burdette. As far as I know there are no Reynolds on our tree but we have so many names on our tree it is difficult to keep them in my mind. There are Montgomeries on there but most have ? marks by them. Not sure of any of that.
