Hello, I looked in the 1900 census index (soundex) but it was mostly unreadable, so I looked in the 1910 too. In the 1910 census there were two groups of Broadus's spelled just that way. One lived down in Dillon S.C. towards the coast. The head of that family seemed to be Calvin Broadus. The other group was in Spartanburg.

In the 1900 census Index I did see a William Broadus, black, born 1867, 33 years old,born in virginia, and living in Union County. BriceyWApr. 187327S.C. Taswell (unclear) SMar.1888 12S.C. WilliamSApr. 189010S.C. Lucy A.DJan.18928S.C.
In the Greenville county newspaper, which would cover Spartanburg, I looked in the 1920-1940 index and the only Broadus listed was Mrs. Sarah Ugenia Broadus. The paper said she was 87 when she died in Newberry, thats not far from Spartanburg, and that her husband was the reverand Luther Broadus. It also said the Broadus family came from Virginia. That was the Greenville News 1934 Nov.6 P.11
I hope this is what you were looking for! C.Harkcom
