We have exchanged info. before -- Mahala McMahan was the sister of my ggg grandmother (Anna W. McMahan Thomason). I just found your query on Alsey Gray. Don't know if you have this but I'll pass it on: Martin V. Abercrombie b/15 Mar 1839 d/29 Jul 1919 PVT.CO B 1 SC Cav CSA son of Alexander & Alsey Gray Abercrombie Martin is buried in Laurens,SC at Dials United Methodist Cemetery.
I am still looking for the name of the 8th daughter of William McMahan (sister to Mahala). She was married to a Garrison (named in William's will but illegable --- it is either Laver/Lever/Levi Garrison). Can you help? I am hitting a wall with the McMahan family. Also - do you know who Cornelius McMahan might be? He was extr. to will of John Kellett who m/Jenny McMahan (one of the 8 sisters).
Do you have the DIALS CHURCH COLLECTION compiled by Sarah Jane Limehouse Armstrong? It is filled with info. on our Laurens families: Abercrombie/Kellett/Dial/Garrison.
