I will print off your info and keep it in my folder.If I come across anything I will let you know.
My family has lived in Alabama for over 150 years so it will be hard to find anyone in SC.My husband happens to be from SC.Maybe I will try to make a trip to Newberry, SC myself and check things out.It isn't too far from where his family lives.
I do know this-a lot of people from SC moved West in the 1815-1830 time frame.Alabama was not a state and neither was Mississippi.I think they just about gave away land to get people to come.
I used the genforum site and hit the jack pot about 2 months ago when I was looking for something about the Speigner family line.They came from Germany/Austria/Switzerland area for religious freedom.They arrived in SC in 1753.It could be that the information that I have that says the Goree (Gorey) family came from France could be true and maybe they came for the same reason.I saw something that says they may have landed in VA and then moved south to SC and later to Alabama and Mississippi.
I hope we can help each other.Good luck.I will contact you if I find anything.
