In Response To: Re: First names of SC Women Bn 1900-1910 ()
You know I sent a posting in with names, year and place of birth and it did not make the forums. So I decided to try this route without names. Their maiden names were VANCE, PINCKNEY(all spellings) and WALKER all of Johnston SC. Walker is an acception. This is the married name of Francis Vance.
Pinckney Surnames, parents Henry and Harriet(spelling of last names changed. Sometimes the 'c' was not included in spelling's.)
Walker--FRANCIS VANCE married to Paul Walker est. 1872
Vance-Rebecca or Beckie
I've sent information to the the Library in Johnston SC by 'snail mail' and have not received any response from anyone as of yet. They have no phone number listed. I was told by another researcher who visited tJohnston and has the surname of WALKER in her family from the same community, that there are Senior's who have knowledge about the past and they were instrumental in helping her find her own information. But you know you have to be there in order to get that type of cooperation. Also this is a small black community so resources may not be available. If you have been to SC, you have to know devolpers are just waiting for families to sell or lose their land to taxes in order to build more Golf Courses. It's just depressing to see. So I understand the reluctance to get help.
I know there is a 'wild card' searching method', but I don't have any idea how to make use of it. The only other alternative I can think of is wait and hope for help from someone on the forums.
