Lyles in SC
------ Forwarded Message
I am searching for information on a woman in my family that is mulatto. She was born around 1845 in Lancaster County (?) South Carolina. She is on the 1850 Lancaster County, Taxahaw area census with the name of "baby" Lyles (5 yrs old) in the household of Charlotte and Elizabeth Lyles. Charlotte and Elizabeth are in the house next to my direct family line - James and Mary Adams Lyles. They are relatives. She appears again on the 1860 Lancaster County SC census in the same family with the name "Harriet Lyles" (14 or 15 yrs old). Many people disagree with me that this woman is a family member in this hosehold, for the rest of the family is white, as I am. I want information on her. Can you help?
