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

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 ?

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.

Mr. Heustess,
I know that you have taken many pictures of markers at the Liles Cemetery in Marlboro County, SC.
Do you think that most have been taken for the Bundys or do you think there are some which have not been added and/or taken. Thank you for your input. Sincerely, Fran

Stubbs m. Elkins [AR branch]
Wish I had found this site a couple of months ago so I could have shared it with my father. He passed away July 5th, 2013. He was the son of Annie Eliza [Stubbs] m. John Mosley Elkins in Arkansas. Annie Eliza was the daughter of Peter Hubbard and Violet Elizabeth [McVicker of Georgia]. Peter Hubbard was the son of William Fuller and Ann [Heustess] Stubbs. I found this site and looked up Arkansas headstones, then thought I'd try in North Carolina and was surprised and pleased with all that I found! Thanks to all who make these surprises possible.

Re: William Stubbs born 1748
Hello William;

William Stubbs was my 4th Great-Grandfather on my Mothers' side. My Grandmother was Mary Jane Stubbs, her father was Peter W.Stubbs who married Nancy Anne Fuller. William's son Peter Sr. born 1780 was married to Rebecca Morris born 1790.
There were apparently 3 who were named Peter.Peter W.'s father was named Peter Bassett Stubbs.
As I understand your profile, I guess we are apparently related somewhere on the Stubbs side of the family. Anyway I hope the information on Peter Sr. was helpful.

You may wish to reconsider transfering your memorials to Jacques (#47057139); I believe he may be inactive; go back and read his messages. I have contacted Find A Grave Admin requesting transfers of some of his memorials.
