[SC] Laurens

Found considerable info on whereabouts of Leah Allison/Ellison..Hoping to find known descendants of her and a death record if possible..
She was living next door to Robert W. Allison/Ellison in 1870, then in 1880 thru 1900 she was living in the same house with him.
Robert was listed as Robert W. Allison one census, R.W. Ellison on another, R. Watt Allison on a third, and Watt Alison on the one of 1850.
Leah was listed as Black on once census, Mulatto on the next, then back to Black on the next..
I have Watt in 1850 with no color listed, and again in 1860 with no color listed.
1870 he is listed as white, 1880 white, 1900 they put Black first, then erased and put white..
There are several children involved including a Robert W. Allison, age 4 in 1870 who was Mulatto..
Also have a death certificate for Edward Ellison who died 1917 and was born in Laurens SC, son of Watt Ellison...
If this rings any bells, please let me know and I will go into more detail of people in the households over the years...
