RE: John Jacob Speck
You're very welcome. I'm sorry it didn't work out. Records from that time are so spotty. It's very possible a record of some kind does exist somewhere - I just couldn't find anything in the cemetery survey, or the few other records I was able to look at in the time available. I hope you're able to turn something up, eventually.

John Jacob Speck
I reported this as a problem on your photo request, but left it active. His name is not on any of the markers in the Revolutionary War cemetery, and I could not find his name in any of the indexes of the three volumes of the "Kerhaw County South Carolina Cemetery Survey" at the Kershaw County Archives in Camden, or the list of soldiers killed at Camden. There may be other records, but he may have been one of the hundreds of fallen soldiers whose whereabouts remain unknown. I'm not sure how his name got listed for that cemetery. Thought you'd want to know.

Ok, his parents are listed in the Overton County Roll Call, but I've found errors in this book so can't confirm his parentage. There is no other stone with an inscription.

I can tell you that there is no inscription on his headstone of any kind other than what's shown in the photo. I too photographed that cemetery and have copies of all headstone photos - there is no other headstone for John Speck (as is sometimes the case in older stones that have been replaced).
There is a local tome called "Overton County Roll Call" which lists all known burials with relationships, if known. Perhaps that's where the additional info came from. I'm getting my copy back from a loan today and will check and let you know.
