Re: LAWTON Slave holder
In Response To: Re: LAWTON Slave holder ()

I took a look at the Slave Schedules on ancestry. In 1850, there were 382,507 slaves listed in SC. 1,074 listed for a slaveholder with the Lawton name. 1,397 - Martin. 523 - Bostick. 306 - Peeples. 289 - Maner. 193 - Solomons.

Some of the names to look for in books and documents are Samuel Maner, John Maner, and John Solomons.
