I am seeking to verify that Priscilla South was the daughter of Benjamin South, Jr. and Anna.Benjamin South, Jr. was born in 1747 in Virginia and died in Laurens, County, South Carolina on 10/20/1809.Benjamin South, Jr. was the son of Benjamin South, Sr. and Rebecca Aspin.
Is there an estate file in Laurens County, S.C. for Benjamin South, Jr.?If so, does anyone have a copy of it?
Priscilla South married Joseph Bolton (son of Matthew Bolton and Jane Wright) and relocated to Gwinnett County, Georgia (as did Matthew).Their daughter, Mary Emmeline, married an unknown Mr. Strickland.I descend from Mary Emmeline and her unknown Mr. Strickland.
See Gwinnett County,Georgia Families 1818-1968, edited by Alice Smythe McCabe and complied by Gwinnett Historical Society, "Boltons" by Tillie Bolton, pgs. 45-47.
