My Polson family is from Chesterfield County SC. The earliest date that I can place them there is 1828 when a "James Poulson" conveys land to my g-g-grandfather, Ainsley Polson who was born in 1802 and is buried in Patrick, SC. This is a rural town about 12 miles southwest of Cheraw, SC.
Does anyone know anything about Poulsons or Polsons who settled in this area? Or, a more general question; does anyone know about Polsons or Poulsons who settled in the South?
There is also a "Henry Poulson" who was granted 500 acres, near Juniper Creek, also in Patrick, in the year 1796. This land was part of a 1000 acre plat that was granted to Guthridge Lyons. The Ellerbees, well known from this area, were also living near this land.
I'll gladly exchange research info with someone willing to correspond.
