Hello, I recently joined this group after discovering that I have a number of ancestors who lived in Fairfield District, South Carolina in the late 1700's and early 1800's. The families concerned are Cooke/Cook, Brown, Pope, Dawkins, Rabb, Woodward, and Collins. I have a fairly extensive ancestral line for the Cooks going back to Bristol, England in the early 1600s (which is included on my family tree) and would be happy to share more information on these ancestors with the group if anyone is interested. Oddly enough, I have more information on the early ancestors and less on the later ones who lived in Fairfield District. I have results for the Y-111 and Family Finder tests and am awaiting results from the Big Y test. Looking forward to sharing with you all.

Would anybody have a clue why a Jacob Gibson of Fairfield Co., SC had land in Greene Co., Georgia-he sold it to a Carnes I believe. Jacob Gibson is my ancestor via my grandmother's mother Phoebe Mae Gibson, d/o Ralph Jones Gibson and his wife, Louisa Catherine Ramsey. Ralph Jones Gibson's mother was Catherine McGraw Gibson, d/o Nathan McGraw and wife, Phoebe Jones, who married Jacob Gibson III. Phoebe Jones was d/o Ralph Jones, d. 1817 in Fairfield Dist., SC. Jacob Gibson III was son of Jacob Gibson and wife, Mary Fort-who went to Amite, then Wilkinson Co., Ms. where Catherine md. Jacob III in 1818 Amite Co., Ms. Mary Fort d/o of Jesse Fort, d. 1815 Wilkinson Co., Ms.
has a question!

Trying to determine the name of my grandfather's father. John Henry Arnold was born April 12, 1873 in Winnsboro, and his father is unknown. He was the son of Nancy Scott Arnold. My GEDMatch # is A166667. Would sure appreciate any clues if we match.

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 see that Bishop is one of the surnames in this group. I am trying to identify if a branch of the George Berryman Bishop family was located near Orangeburg. Everyone I have found is in the Spartanburg area.
