My g-grandmother was Mary Frances McPhail, b. 21 Jan. 1862, d. 30 July 1943. I was always told she grew up near the modern Bleckley-Laurens county line.She is listed in family information as having been born in Pulaski Co. Her husband died in Cochran; their son raised a family in Empire, just a few miles away as you know.I have Mary Francis's line back several generations, but very little branch information, just lineal. I suspect she and your lady were sisters or cousins. Her MacPhails, McPhails come from Cumberland Co., NC, where my brother has found a McPhail family cemetery and found graves of family members which confirmed information provided us by our aunts from Empire. Good luck!
