Re: Rivers Surname in Denmark, SC
In Response To: Rivers Surname in Denmark, SC ()

Hi Sharon,

So you just beginning? Okay, what do you already know about Verdear Rivers? Try to get together everything you know about her. Ask family that may know more.

But anyways, I believe I may have found your Verdear Rivers. I dont know, you tell me.

In 1920 in Jasper County SC in the City of Pocotaligo. Note that Jasper is one county over from Bamberg County which includes the city of Denmark

Rivers, Mattie Head Widower age 27 born SC Father SC Mother SC
Rivers, Susie Dau age 14 Born SC
Rivers, Johnny Son age 10
Rivers, Verdie Dau age 7
Rivers, Orine Dau age 5


Now in 1930 in Jasper County SC in the same city if Pocotaligo I found that Verdie was married to a Johnny Struggs>>

Struggs, Johnnnie Head age 21, first married at age 18, SC SC SC
Struggs, Verdie Wife age 19, first married at age 16, SC SC SC
Struggs, Vaneta, Dau age 2 SC
Struggs, Louisianna Dau age 11 months SC

Her and Johnnie Struggs are living next door to Verdie's mother Mattie Rivers.
Living with Mattie is a 10 year grandson named Dave, a dau named Irene age 15, a 9 year old grandson named Arthur, a Son named Johnnie age 21 and Johnnie's wife named Lounissa age 19.


Also there a Obit on for Verdie's Daughter, Vernita A. Struggs Morris>>

Also, I found Mattie in 1910 in Hampton County SC. Jasper County was formed from Hampton county and Beaufort in 1912. In 1920, Mattie was widowed. But in 1910, the census states that her husband is Dave Rivers Jr. Dave is living next to a Dave Rivers who is 77 years old and widowed.

I hopes this Helps
