Greetings Cousins, I have been researching my Horry County roots on my father's side and I have compiled 12 surnames on his mother's side (Waller, Strickland, Lewis, Floyd, Nicholls, Chestnut, Flowers, Sessions, Tillman, McKilroy, Wilson, McCracken) using and the Horry County Historical Society website but I have failed to find any connections on his father's side. His father was Paul Octavious Smith (1896-1980) and his remains were interred at Hillcrest Cemetery in Conway. He had an ancestor who was a Revolutionary War veteran who was compensated for his service with, as I remember, 1,600 acres of Horry County, 40 acres of which were still held by his remaining children about 28 years ago. A framed original hand drawn plat map/deed for the land has been in my family's possession. I don't know where the land is or who owns it now as I have lost track of my father's siblings and their families. If you are a descendant of Paul Octavious Smith or you can apprise me of any information about his heredity, please get in touch. The only DNA kit I have is the most recent 23andme which is the wrong format for FamilyTreeDNA who doesn't seem willing to accommodate it. I have a number of cousins with Horry County roots on 23andme.

Who is the Administrator of this group? Other than people joining activity, analysis information is non existent. In that case, no news is not good news. :-(

I can find no contact info. Perhaps administrator abandoned project or perhaps died. I know of another project administrator that died, but was quickly replaced. I will contact another I know for assistance here.

Thank you Sir! With the group being formed in 2010 the posted Overview and Background entries are the same. Seems a shame for people to join hoping to contribute and learn then hear nothing but crickets. :-)
