Frank these children on Find A Grave Memorial I can't find two of them on Census,  if you can check it out, Thanks
Looking for James Bagwell's b.1826 parents his dad John Bagwell and Margaret Unknown looks like they would be born between 1800 1818 probably Pendleton District of South Carolina?

Thanks for any help
