I also said it because when I was growing up and before I knew anything of my father, he was always in North Carolina. I found out later that he and his people were from North Carolina, and I guess that at one time or the other or maybe during the 1930s or whatever many of the people, especially in the case of John Evans my father, who left South Carolina looking for work in North Carolina. He lived there in N.C. until he died in 1962, however he was buried in his home of South Carolina. Then if you just so happen to be scrolling through some names you will see a lot of folks who live in NC are from SC.
Another part of my research took me into Kentucky and Tennessee where I learned that if you go to places like Ohio and Michigan and parts of Illinois you will see the folks from those two states seemed to head in that direction. Folks did a lot of traveling back then, Iguess. Joseph
