I have been reading old correspondence and note Gene Swann wrote books on the Box family. I tried to email him but the message did not go through. Hope he's still around. Does anyone know?
Gene mentioned that there were 6 Box brothers. I believe my line from Jonathan Box, born in Laurens, SC, is one of the six. Jonathan moved to Paulding, GA in the early 1800s on Oglethorpe land. Three of his sons moved with him and his wife, Elizabeth Bolton, to east Missouri, where Jonathan died at the age of 91.
Jonathan's sons were Wiley, Hardy, and my ancestor, Maston P. None of these family researchers can trace the line past Jonathan.
Does anyone have a copy of the Swann book(s) that can help me locate the parents, siblings, etc. of Jonathan Box?
