I am also researching SC Blumes aroung the Barnwell, Blackville, Bamberg area.
I am trying to find the name of my great, great grandfather. His son was William Pinkney Blume born 1860.
I am also trying to find the name of my grandmother's father and/or mother. My grandmother's name was Ella Elvinia born 1889, married William Henry Blume, born in 1888. He retired from Southern(?) Railroad that ran through Bamberg.
