What I have been working on for May….

I was able to find several land deeds for James Kinman, James Cook (son of Cornelius Cook) and William Cook (son of Cornelius  Cook). The  deeds proved the locations of where I thought they lived in Laurens County (near present day Princeton).

I also found a land deed from 1825 from James Medlock to Nimrod Donaldson for 10 acres of land on Line Creek (Greenville/ Laurens County Line). Nimrod purchased the land shortly after his marriage to Sarah McCullough in Nov 1824. In 1833, William McCullough conveyed 42 acres to his son in law, Nimrod Donaldson, on Horse Creek in Greenville County.  Nimrod lived on the 42 acres conveyed to him by his Father in Law. Nimrod Donaldson and his wife, Sarah (Sallie), William McCullough and Jane McCullough are buried on the former Donaldson property.

I have been a avid history buff since age 10. I graduated from the College of Charleston with a B.A. in US History. I have been researching my family for 12 years. I specialize in South Carolina history and research. I do freelance genealogy work centered around South Carolina between 1750- 1880. If you have ancestors in South Carolina between 1750-1880 that you would like me to locate, please contact me. Disclaimer.....My research is based on actual evidence which I may or may not post. Any photographs or documentation that I use is my intellectual property unless otherwise noted and may not be used or borrowed without my expressed written consent.
