Birth: 1755

South Carolina, USA
Death: 1827

He is listed as being born in Georgetown Co., but Marion Co. use to be part of Georgetown Co. in his day. It is uncertain exactly where he was born but very likely near the borderline of each county.

A Revolutionary War Veteran that served in the SC Militia from 1779-1782. He was the son of Joshua Avant, Sr. & Ann Avant. It's unknown if either Joshua Avant's used the Jr. or Sr., but I chose to use it to distinguish them apart.
