Hello all (again), This is a second try at a message posting.My computer breaks the Internet connection at the oddest times.
I am just beginning research on my mother's family. My mother, Dorothy P.Hewett, was the oldest child of Coy Hewett and his wife, Dena (nee Stanley).Coy and Dena had another child, Coy, Jr. who resides in Oak Island, NC.
Coy, Sr. had a brother (twin?) named Roy.As I am told, Roy had several children and his descendants thrive in Brunswick County, NC and Horry County, SC.
My mother tried unsuccesfully to trace her roots. Two reasons for problems have been given by the family: one, similarity of names within the Hewett family and contemporary births and deaths made it impossible to tell which lineage to follow, or two, no records exist.
If it will help, my grandmother, Dena, was born in Little River, SC ca. 1890.Her mother's maiden name was Stanaland.
Thanks in advance for any help anyone might offer. Tom
