Is anyone else researching KOON "varient spellings found" residing within the Richland/Kershaw County areas?
Because of the misc spellings found it's been quite a trial locating sources UGH!!!
I'm trying to locate background information to determine if George KOON b. abt 1789 SC is related to the known Hans Casper KUHN and if so how.
George KOON and his wife are my brick wall
