McKenzie's in South Carolina
Dear Harriet,
I was able to locate the graves for Joe and Sara but not the rest of who you requested. Of note is the fact that some years ago vandals burned all the wooden grave markers and removed an unknown number of headstones. Given the dates of death for all of your folks this could be an explanation. I photographed all the other McKenzie's I could find as well as the one Oglesby grave. I will be creating memorials for these folks as I get time. Hope this helps.

Margaret Gibson Leard/Laird

I have changed the bio for Margaret to reflect why her death is based on February 27, 1767. It actually should read after February 27, 1767. I have not found a way to enter "after" in the date area but I have explained the date in her bio. If you still think this is a problem, let me know what you think should change. Thanks!
- - -

Margaret Gibson was born 1731 in County Down, Northern Ireland. She married Samuel Leard/Laird 1759 in County Down, Northern Ireland. Margaret emigrated from Ireland with her husband and family landing at the port of Charleston, Charleston Co., South Carolina aboard The Earl of Hillsborough, February 19, 1767.

Her husband Samuel was granted 300 acres of bounty land on February 27, 1767 based on the following: Samuel Laird 100 acre base + 50 for wife Margaret + 50 for young son John + 50 for young daughter Mary + 50 for young son Samuel = 300 acres. These numbers were based on the list of passengers arriving on the Earl of Hillsborough on the 19th of February, 1767.

Margaret died sometime after February 27, 1767 in Cedar Springs, Abbeville Co., South Carolina.

Thank you kindly for your response. I know those old graves are deteriorating so much. Wish they had Granite back in the 1700's - early 1800's!

RE: McCaslan graves
I sent a message to the other contributor also because I had no way of knowing which were correctly placed; hopefully she will contact you and you can let her know hers are misplaced and need to be deleted.

thanks, Karyn

RE: 1890's Bryson Creswell
Miss Creswell:

Thank you for answering, it is truelly a small world, this is how past generations have such a profound effect on later generations.
I was too young to remember anything about the Cedar Springs Community when we first moved there around 1936, but this was the place I first became aware of things around me, and the Cedar Springs community is still near and dear to me, the old Pressley home, the old stage coach inn where the Lester Edwards family lived when we were there, Long Cane Creek, the old "Steel" bridge that I use to get down on my hands and knees and crawl across for fear if I stood up I would fall through the cracks, that is long gone. The old Kennedy "Mill stone" that was never lifted on the banks of Long Cne Creek near the old stage coach road. You probably never heard of that, but it is still there.

Thanks for bringing all these old memories back, it truly was a wonderful time even if we were in the depths of a gread depression.

1890's Bryson Creswell

Did you have a grandfather or great grandfather named Bryson Creswell?
The reason I ask is I remember his name from my childhood (I am 79, be 80 nest March). My father was Henry Klugh Drennan, his father was Charles Drennan, his father was Dr. Horace Drennan. Charles and Horace are buried at Cedar Springs.
What I remember about Bryson Creswell, he owned a big truck was either in the logging business or lumber business. I was about 6 years old and it appeaared to me that Bryson and my Dad were friends. It seems Mr. Creswell was going to come by our home one day and my Dad was talking to my mother, he told her,"I am going to pull Bryson's leg a little". I took it literally, I thought he was going out there and grab Mr. Greswell by the foot and pull it. I couldn't wait to see that. Needless to say it did not happen and I was very disappointed. That has been almost 75 years ago.

Thanks for your time,

RE: Creswell family question
Thanks for the information. I found the Joseph and Jennie Patterson Creswell family listed on the site. It lists 8 total children of this couple. Mattie Creswell Brown is one of the three that dose not list birth dates on. Do you have any idea what year she may have been born? Was she older than your Thomas? Also, do you know of a way to find a marriage date for her and Mathew Brown? He came from Ireland in 1814, so I assume they were married within a year or two of this date since their first children were born in July 1816.
Thanks again. You can reach me at if you would like to exchange any info that way.
