About Our Family Research

I was born in HAMPTON, SC. in 1942, raised in SAVANNAH, GA. until the age of fifteen (15) whereupon we moved to PHILADELPHIA, PA. I'm an AIR FORCE VETERAN, a graduate of PENN STATE UNIVERSITY, and I also attended RUTGERS LAW SCHOOL,and did post graduate work at The UNIVERSITY of PENNSYLVANIA, TEMPLE UNIVERSITY and HARVARD UNIVERSITY. I'm looking for relatives out of BAMBERG and surrounding Counties. I've traced back to DAVE KEARSE who was my Great-Great Grandfather. My Great Grandfather was GEORGE KEARSE, and my Grand father was ANDREW "BUB" KEARSE. My Mother was "Granddaddy Bub's" daughter SARAH, who married NATHANIEL GARNER,SR. in HAMPTON, SC. in 1940. I have met many many KEARSE and FARMER family members in thirty-eight (38) of the fifty (50) United States, and I want to meet more (I know you're out there!!!). My Father was the son of WILLIE FARMER and ETHEL BING of LENA, SC. My great grandmother was MAMIE BING, who had brothers named CHASEN and HULEY and others I don't recall right now. I've attended many KEARSE FAMILY REUNIONS and FARMER FAMILY REUNIONS over the past twenty-five years, and I anxiously look forward to many more in the future (next KFR will be in Tampa. Fla. Labor Day weekend 2001 at The Fairfield Inn-Brandon. The next FFR is to be held next year (2002, and the information will be posted as soon as its compiled and finalized).
