Joe, is my husband's great-grandfather. He was born about 1861 in South Carolina and died in Arkansas in 1953. I have traced his history up to who his parents were. I have traced every link I can think of, the only thing I have found is that they were born in South Carolina. Sometimes, he went by JW, sometimes Joseph. Abrams has been spelled every imaginable way possible. I just can't get a lead on his parents or siblings. Thanks for question and help.
