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.

Nathan Henry Hinds (75086993)
Mr. Heustess, as I continue my research on my Hinds family, I found that you had created the memorial for Nathan Henry Hinds (75086993) and wondered if you would be so kind as to transfer it to me. He was my paternal uncle.

Thank you for your consideration of my request.

Happy New Year to you and yours,

RE: Ella Roberta Stanton Wright
Thanks for getting back with me. I will check out the tree on Ancestry. I found that with the many spellings of Heustess that it was easy to get lost.
I had seen that Mrs Hayes had passed away and sent a message to Linda that was listed as the maintainer. Hopefully, we can get my side of the family tied in soon.
I stopped by Marlboro County a few years ago while driving back to Atlanta. I have photos of many of these folks that were buried in Hebron, McLucas and Beaver Dam cemeteries. That was two computers ago, so hopefully I can locate them.

Thanks again,

Brian Hood

Heustess Family
Good afternoon,

I just started working on my paternal grandmother's side of the family again after a bit of a break. Her name was Gladys Wright and she was born in Dillon Co, SC in 1904. Her line goes back through the Stanton, Heustess, Calhoun, McCormick, McDaniel, Everett, Hamer, Godbold, McKinnon, Spears, Hubbard, and Pate families.

You are listed as the creator on many of the records that cover my family members. I would like to see if you have any other Heustess family records that are not covered through Find A Grave. I would also like to share info with you on my side of the family. My great grandmother, Ella Roberta Stanton, is listed as a child of Franklin Pierce Stanton near the top of his page, but she is not listed lower where the links to descendants would be.

I'm just getting started as a contributor here but I am ready to get started.

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.
