Francis Wafer, born ca. 1706 in Ireland, married Mary McGoffin of Scotland. Francis reportedly paid what Mary owed for her passage and married her ca. 1750 in South Carolina.Francis and Mary's son, Thomas Wafer, was born ca. 1755 in SC. He was a revolutionary war vet. I'd like to hear from anyone researching Francis Wafer and his descendants. Francis is said to have left Ireland on the way home from a fair (market). There were ships ready to leave and inducements for young men to go to the Colonies and make a fortune trading with the indians.
