Thank you. I will check those individuals out today on the images and see if I can find anything. (Part of the following was also posted on the other forum)..but this is where I stand with my family now.
Attempting to find the parents of Pharoah Gillins, I began searching the 199 images of 1870 St. Johns Berkeley Charleston County Sc.
This is him in 1870:
Searching through the images, I found, a few doors away, on page 242:
Gillins, Barsow or Bassow..age 60
few more doors away ..page 243 is:
Gillins, James..age 40
page: 245 B
Several members mentioned above were found still living in Charleston Co. in 1880. All stating "born in SC".
Working my way backwards searching for that surname, I couldnt find anything until I found these names in SC. I feel that my Gillins are somehow connected to these people.

I strongly believe that Bassow/Barsow is the father of Pharoah. But, I need to prove it somehow. Any suggesstions and or guidance will be appreciated. Thanks again..Leanne
