Mr. Wilson, I am trying to determine the parents of our John Maynard / Miniard. He was born about 1789 and lived in both Edgefield county, South Carolina and Jones County, Georgia. His 1829 will is filed in both locations. The only clue to his identity is that his will names his brother, James Miniard, and brother-in-law, Edward Culbreath.
After his death, James and Edward took John's children back to Edgefield where they grew up and married.Some of them returned to Georgia.
Do you know anything of the parents of John and James Maynard?I would appreciate any help.
