I'm looking for information about my great-great grandparents, Michael and Frances Ponds who lived in Lexington County, SC, Gilbert Hollow Township in 1880. They do not appear in the 1870 census of that County. In 1900 some of the children were in Conway County, AR. Their children were: George, Bascom (my great-grandfather-full name John Bascom), Elizabeth (Lizzie), Thomas, Mary, Estelle, and Cromwell.
Alice married Richard BOOZER. (Richard was Hattie Boozer's brother and had a brother named Lemuel)She may have been an Alice Sawyer. They were in SC in 1880 but Alice and Richard were not married in 1880. Bascom married Ida ARMSTEAD. George married Ida Swaggert/Swygert, daughter of Hannibal and Isabella? Swaggert from South Carolina in 1888 in AR Thomas married Minnie Lee Payton from SC. He was a railroad worker. Cromwell was a railroad worker. Have pictures of Bascom, Thomas, and Cromwell. Where were they in 1870? Are there relatives still in SC? Were they in another state in 1870?
