I am looking along the line of these people. James, Andrew, George, Obidiah Makamson. I have them in the census here in the 1700s on up. Most of them left here and settled somewhere else. George Makamson born 1803 stayed here. This area used to be in the old 96th District South Carolina, then changed to Union,York,and Spartanburg Counties South Carolina. In 1897 this area became Cherokee County South Carolina. Early on this area was considerd North Carolina. Confusing but true! I have other Makamsons helping me on these people, but they to have their Makamsons in other areas. It is possable for these people to be kin to each other or have been here first. I don't dispute census records from that far back.Oh yes, these people also changed their names from Makamson to Macomson. If you want to talk more about these Makamsons email me . I don't check this site often.
