Dawn, I'm interested to learn if you have made any progress searching for Brownings in South Carolina since you posted this message. I'm trying to find any info about my 2xgreat-grand parents William Chandless Hall & Martha Celina nee Browning. I expect they were both born between the 1820's & 1840's, although I have no birth, death or marriage dates for either nor places of birth. They were likely living in or very near Charleston, SC in 1860. They had a daughter, Isadora Katherine Hall (b. Aug 17, 1861 - d. Mar 15, 1906 & went by Dora) that I'm certain of and a possible son Jesse. There may be other children that I'm not aware of. Dora married William Smith Stall around 1878. They had 9 children, lived & died in Charleston, SC.
I would appreciate any info or clues you may know about that could help me ID Martha's parents, siblings, spouse, other children, dates. birthplace, etc.
