I am looking for information On Henry Avant of Horry Co SC. I came across a deed on the internet (Horry Co Deed bk C-1 195 K26) between Penelope Avant, Mary Avant, Henry C Avant, Juliann W Avant, Elizabeth J Avant, and Penelope S Avant, heirs of Henry Avant.1838. I feel certain that the Henry C Avant is the same person who migrated to Calhoun Co Fl. I have a clue that his middle name is Cliatt but not sure.
Henry C. is married to a Sarah Jane R. per the census. They have a son Samuel S(tephenson?) Avant who marries a Gertrude Locklear in Florida. This is my husbands line. I notice the name Benjamine gets carried down in Henry C's line. Does anyone know who Henry's father is? Also in this deed Julian(n) is spelled first with two N's and then one. So is it a he or a she and what became of him her? Is Penelope a Stephenson?
Any information appreciated.
