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.

George Washington "Wash" Heustess
Memorial #34328337

I am compiling photos of former pastors of St. John Free Will Baptist Church for a church project.In my research I found "Rev. G. W. Huestas Patrick, SC" mentioned in the 1947 Session Conference of the Original Free Will Baptists and I found a Rev. G.W. Huestess(spelled several different ways) in the old minutes of St. John Free Will Baptist Church.

Is this George Washington "Wash" Heustess memorial on the same Rev. G. W. Huestess?

Many thanks for your help.

RE: Mary Elizabeth Heustess Oswalt

Thank you for the transfers. I do appear to be the closest family now active on this site. If you would then, even closer family to me of the Smith/Oswalts are Willow Glenn Oswalt, Dorris Inez Smith Oswalt (my aunt), and their two children, Col Barney L Oswalt, and Wilton E "Tiny" Oswalt. If you would transfer those to me as well, I would appreciate it. I would like to add/edit plus post bios in several cases.

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
