Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of Kershaw, S.C. I am the pastor of Shiloh United Methodist Church in Marion, SC.

By researching my father's family tree, I have discovered I am the third great grandson of Matthew Heustess and Nancy Ann Spears of Marlboro County, South Carolina. In the early 1800's, most of their descendants lived in the Peedee region of eastern South Carolina.

Modern-day descendants of this branch of the Heustess family are concentrated in the Carolinas, Alabama and Arkansas. Twelve of the most common surnames in this branch of the Heustess family tree during the 19th century include Calhoun, Covington, Dampier, David, Hamer, Hubbard, Northcutt, Roper, Spears, Stanton, Stubbs and Wright.

To gain a better understanding of my mother's heritage, I am currently researching the Hamel, Love and Thomasson families of York County, South Carolina. I have discovered distant cousins scattered throughout the southeastern United States.

Thank you for your kindness and cooperation. I welcome your comments and corrections.

Daniel Jackson Odom
I am doing research on the Odom family of Marlboro County, S.C.....I have the will of Daniel J. Odom in which he requested that a suitable monument be erected at his grave in his will......I found this as a man's desire to be remembered... (his sister Harriet requested the same) . I have that section (Item #1) would you like me to attach it to your 'Find A Grave' for him ?

Alexander Beverly
This is to help fill in the blank area about Alexander's first wife...Alexander Beverly's 1st wife was Elizabeth Odom (1820-1863)...She was the daughter of Rev. James Odom (1794-1856) & Rebecca Odom (1796-1852). All of Marlboro County, S.C. The two had 4 children as is listed in the 1860 Census....which makes Alexander the father of eleven children al together.
Sincerely submitted,
Nancy Craig Solt

RE: Thoroughgood Pate Stubbs
First, thank you for doing the research.

Last time I visited, someone had gone and cleared out some of the overgrowth in the back. But I still am careful to walk back during the warm months to avoid running into any snakes. My next trip down, I want to remember to take photos.

Yes sir, if you would like to add his name, please do so. I still have speak with my Aunt about some other relatives I am just finding out about.

Thanks again,

RE: Letha Parks Harrelson Richardson
That is really weird, I think she must have merged her bio and pics with another memorial with the one I created because I did not approve or add that to the bio. If you look the photo I added matches the dates I put but her pics were actually added in 2008 which was prior to the time I created the memorial. This is weird. I will request her remove it or just delete and create a new one. Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention. That is so weird that she was actually able to get info in the bio section of a bio I create. It has by Betty in blue so I can only assume that was done through a merge.

I think you are right--her father seems to be Troy Laverne Watford, Sr.

I noticed several of the names in your biography overlap in my family tree. I think we may cross paths on several of them again, and hopefully share information. I'm directly related to the Wrights out of Darlington/Lamar and have ties to the Stantons, Spears, Edens, Parishs, Covingtons, and Hamers in this area. I'm still searching for burial locations on some ones during the 1800s.

RE: James Thomas Stanton
You're so does get a bit confusing when there are several people in the same area with similar names. I appreciate the collaboration. Thanks.
