I live in "Oak Hill Community" Lancaster County, South Carolina, which is home and I have family connection with: Wright/West/Whitaker/Threatt/McManus in Lancaster and Chesterfield county SC and Mills/McCoy/Deese in Union County NC/Chesterfield County SC.
Within 2 days of posting an old photo here of a Great Uncle of mine, I received a response from a cousin in Phoenix AZ that I am not sure if I ever met when we were very young, but I did know his mom and so very fond of his grandmother who was a cousin and close friend of my family.
This has been the greatest find and surprise for me to find someone as interested as I am in the heritage of our families and all the connections and stories of our ancestors.
Thanks to all the contributors to this site. This is so great and such an abundance of information.
