In regard to the Spartanburg migration, I'm wondering if others went with Jeremiah.He was kind of late for the thousands migrating down there -- Scots-Irish too .He probably wasn't the only one to go on to KY either.
I would add here that I'm a Mayflower descendant through the Brewsters and others on down to the Perrys through my New England family.Just figured out I'm 9th cousins with John Kerry through my Bradstreets and Dudleys and surely cousins with John Edward's Duncans--the ones who went down to SC.I do know my way around genealogically.
What I wanted to say, though, is that my northern ancestors left me a basic roadmap.My grgrandfather wrote most of our ancestry down (with mistakes, of course).And I always knew that our Mary Perry was a Pilgrim.Oh yes, it was history lesson, question and answer time from my Grandma (and the Pilgrims weren't even from her side!).Still, it wasn't easy finding the link and that was in Maine in the early 1800s!!!!
My families in the South are more difficult.I even see ones in Russell VA that are related to Snellings of MA, but there is absolutely no record of migration back and forth. They were pretty busy on that frontier and records are sparse. I know the Dotys of NJ were better about that, but still...And we have several other possibilities too.
I know this is your namesake and I feel the same way about my Snelling family.I know you've been working at it a long time.Don't worry.There's a few more stones to be unturned.Thank you for your company and knowledge.
