Re: Cuddoes/Midway/True Blue Plantation, SC
In Response To: Re: Cuddoes/Midway Plantation, SC ()
We were looking for True Blue Plantation of Georgetown County, SC in the South Caroliniana Library, and found instead a record of families and births, with parents, on True Blue Plantation near St Matthews (then Orangeburgh County, now Calhoun Co) in the 1850s and 1860s. The plantation owner was Singleton, but for some reason the record is filed in the library under Robert F W Allston, although I can't find any connection to him and believe this may be a mistake. I got photocopies of the record and transcribed it to a PDF file. I have found about 15 of the families in the 1870 census and I'm sure there are more to be found. The 1870 family names include Archy, Coakly, Davis, Glover, McKnight, Jefferson, Utt?, Severny, Scott, Major, Funderburg, Legree, McCelvey, and Swizer. I'll be glad to send the transcript of the birth and family record to anyone who's interested.
