Sion Presbyterian Cemetery, Winnsboro, SC

Just added a gravestone photo for Margaret Crawford (born c. 1793, died 1/19/1864 aged 71). Not sure if this is her maiden or married name.

Any ideas?

There are also new updates for several other Surnames: Crawford, Matthews, Elliott and more.

As always, if you would like copies of any of the photos, please let me know.

Will Book C, Alachua County, Florida

I was sent Robert Lara Cathcart's will recently by the Alachua County Florida Clerk of the Court, (thanks very much Jim!).

There are mentions of several children, grandchildren and a look into the guardianship of the Shirley grandchildren. Perhaps this has something to do with Robert's son-in-law Darling Shirley getting $1!

If you continue to search, you'll find several other interesting listings.

To try and defeat them, I use the following procedure:

Thanks & looking forward to hearing from my cousins and fellow genealogy nuts.

James Cathcart's wife, Nancy

One of the enduring mysteries of my research is finding out the maiden name of Nancy Cathcart, wife of my third great grandfather, James Cathcart.

Here's a link to James in my database: James Cathcart, Sr. (circa 1763-1851)

Anyone have any ideas? Guesses?
