Re: "Old Miller" Plantation-being overbuilt
I was told that the HIOTT that married into the family was from around Round-O.
I find it interesting that you have a Judge HIOTT, and I have a "Judge" WEEKS. I think David Soloman WEEKS' nickname was actually "Uncle JUDGE".
I'm wondering if your Rev. John S WEEKS was Philip Benjamin WEEKS' father. And that the Philip WEEKS that I found in the Prince William Parish records (Beaufort) was perhaps John's father. The parish records stated that Philip WEEKS was dismissed from the church for "preaching". It would make sense that his son became a "preacher".
Do you have any other info on this WEEKS line?
The McElligott's booklet sounds like a useful source of info. Perhaps I can find it in the library here in Charleston.
I have also been told that Mike HIOTT the newscaster was related.
And, yes, the WEEKS were from Colleton Co.
Aunt Rheta often mentions Ravenel, Ruffin, and Blackville.
