Re: SHERIDAN; SC
I'm searching for info on the individuals and families of the following:
Elizabeth "Eliza" SHERIDAN b.c. 1853
m. George M. SHOKES
d. 1919 Charleston, SC
James SHERIDAN b.c. 1866
m. Maria S. SHOKES (George's sister)
Thomas SHERIDAN b.c. 1866
notes: from Charleston City Directory
Robert B. Gallotpainter17 Aiken St. Chas., SC 1888
James Sheridanbutcher17 Aiken Charleston SC 1888
Thomas Sheridantinner17 Aiken Charleston SC 1888
Gerge M. Shokes N.E.R.R. engieer17 Aiken Chas.,SC 1888
I have found a couple of references to SHOKES living in Colleton Co. SC and one grave near Givhan's. I also noticed that on the 1825 Mills Atlas there were SHERIDANs living in upper Colleton Co. near families that also married into my SHOKES line.
I'm trying to find the parents of the above SHERIDANs. This would also help in locating other connected families.
During the Civil War some of my SHOKES the above mentioned Maria S., and Susanna M. SHOKES were living in Williston, SC, (along the Charleston - Augusta RR line) not far from the Colleton SHERIDANs.
I would be very interested is seeing what info you have on the Colleton Co. SHERIDANs, and If you are connected to the above families I'd be happy to share more info on these families.
An 1870 and 1880 Census record on SHERIDANs would be helpful.
