What I am working on in April…

1)John Donaldson and Thomas Donaldson on Duncan’s Creek in Craven Co in 1774-1775. Both have the same neighbor, Micheal Dickson.

2) Alex Harper and wife Sarah in Abbeville Co. He was a member of Turkey Creek Baptist Church in the 1790’s. His father or grandfather, William, immigrated to South Carolina in 1767. William was a member of Old Waxhaw Presbyterian Church in present day Lancaster and is buried there. William Donaldson (born 1785) had a son named Silas Harper Donaldson. My guess is that Thomas Donaldson’s (born circa 1750) first wife may have been a Harper and not a Janet Reeves, but I need to prove it with documentation.  So far I haven’t been able to find any documentation connecting Thomas Donaldson to Janet Reeves.  I need to explore all possibilities.
