I'm in the (long term!) process of putting together a family tree and finding every document I can. Of course, find-a-grave has been a big help. But many of my family members don't have memorials, so as I collect photos and information, I'm posting it here. I'm particularly interested in using the relationships feature to form a sort of family tree on find-a-grave. I only connect family members whose relationship I can document. So if you've stumbled upon a relative of yours that is plugged into my "tree" I should be able to offer you documentary evidence for the connection. And, hey! we're related! So send me a note and let me know who you are and how we're related. I'm trying to eventually track down and document every descendant of Thomas and Sarah Bradley of Kershaw Co, South Carolina (married around 1815, or perhaps a few years earlier). I also spend my day off most weeks stomping around in all the wonderful old family cemeteries here in Williamson Co, TN. It's amazing how few of the graves are registered here on findagrave.com, so I'm trying to remedy that. In not too many more years, most of these markers will not be legible. So my approach is to transcribe and photograph every marker that has writing in every family cemetery I visit. There are nearly 400 here in Williamson Co, so I suppose I've got plenty of grist for my hobby for a long time to come. I also try to take as many volunteer photos as come my direction. Isn't this site great?!|

|TBarfield||Shadrach Rodgers/Doras Rodgers Boykin|
Matthew, I just emailed a page from a pension application for the Revolutionary was service of Shadrach Rodgers, which was submitted by his daughter Dorcas,her husband Stephen Boykin, and her brother Shadrach Jr. who are all named on the application. Here is a link the transcribed document online: http://www.revwarapps.org/r8928.pdf
Wanted to set the record straight from my last message. Dorcas is my 4th great Grand Aunt. Not sure why Ancestry.com shows her to be my 5th great grandmother in my tree, but her sister Margaret Rodgers married my 4th great grandfather, Shadrack Mathis. Dorcas and Margaret were daughters of Revolutionary War patriot Shadrach Rodgers and his wife Celia Jordan. Some of the surnames associated with this family line in the Sumter/Kershaw SC area that I relate to are Rodgers, Mathis, DuBose, Kershaw, Corbett, and Barfield. I have a good amount of info on these families, so just let me know if I can help.

Hi Matthew, I have the last Will and Testament of Dorcas Rodgers Boykin, my 5th great grandmother. I'd be glad to share it if you have not already come across it. Just let me know. Thank you. -Tracy
