I too am trying to find my ancestors I'm not sure where they start Levi Abrahams and Elizabeth M. died sometime before Apr 1830 and 3 children were taken to the Charleston Orphan house in SC.Alexander and his twin Roseanna, and Charles Theodore b.circa 1825 d. 10/Apr/1890 the name changed to ABRAMS when they were taken out.Charles died in Savannah, Ga. Where the others went I don't know. They were all taken in by the Prevost family eventually. I do know Alexander had twins and named them Alexander and Rose.Of their 8 children Charles had only 4 survived.Orville Sigwald Abrams, Julia Prevost Abrams Herron, Cordella Gertrude Abrams Melfi, and Walter Middleton Abrams. One of Orville sons went to Atlanta, Ga (Orville Christopher) and another went to Detroit, MI(Theodore T.) and Charles P. went to New York. Walter M. died in Charleston and had one son Milton H. and his son in Fl. So this clan started in SC>GA>Fl and MI and NY.
