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.

RE: Hebron Cemetery
You're way ahead of me! So I may be asking for your advice. I only recently discovered ones in my family, so it was a pleasant surprise. I certainly will check into the names you've listed. Thanks.

RE: Hebron Cemetery
You are most welcome. I discovered recently that I am related to the Heustess line as well and have been tracking them down. Hopefully I'll find more to post.

RE: Ernest Reddic
Then that worked out well-you're welcome.

Reddic transfer
I transferred Ernest Reddic to you because you seem to know this family. At least you knew ER's date of birth, anyway.

Thanks, for your work on Ann Sutton Heustess Stubbs, Matthew Heustess, and Nancy Ann Spears
Heustess. They would have been my 3rd and 4th
great grandparents.

I have been to Pleasant Hill Cemetery, in McFarlan, NC numerous times, and in Feb 2014,I was researching Sally Northcutt, and in less than and hour, thanks to William Foster and you,
I discovered numerous great great... grandparents.

Today, i just discovered Matthew and Nancy Heustess. Is it possible to visit their grave?

I coached a Johnthan Thomasson in Dixie youth baseball
in 1992, in York County. His father is Gary. Johnthan is a deputy in Chester SC.

Sorry for getting back to you so late ... but I would be happy to help.

That line of people is direct to my step-mother.

Are you in that line ?

Remember me
No problem, I have a Lee connection as well, and sure wish I could figure out the part from the early 1800's. If anything changes, will let you know. Surprised that Mitties death is not in the Ben Truluck diary of his burials of that time.

RE: Liles Cemetery
William, I was working on the Warren Lamar Bundy family, but please do not make any special trip there... with the cost of gas especially. There may be a great number of unmarked graves, as there are in most cemeteries. I'm guessing that these Bundys may be buried in unmarked graves, as well.
Thank you for your interest and dedication all the same.
