You know,  I see that on one tree Margaret Higgins is from Ireland, not sure if this is the same one,  I see other information saying that the Lesley Family is from Ireland,  I would almost thank that Margaret being an Aunt to the Lesley Family that see is the Father's sister making her Margaret Lesley b. 1825 married to Wilson Higgins , does that what it looks like to yall..?

It is possible. I would suggest researching her children more.

Doug and Frank I don't see any way to connect them do yall with out knowing how they are aunts , I guess I will just leave the notes, , Thanks let me know if yall, find a connection,  I need to call South Carolina Archives on this Breazeale family I guess , when my Henry Breazeale came over from Ireland, he worked on George Washington ' s Plantation as Free inhabite or what ever that is and then if I read everything right the King I guess gave him land on Old Long Cane Creek Plantation in Abbeville Dist,  He had a son Willis Breazeale,  Willis had two sons with the Washington as a middle name George Washington Breazeale b.1780 and Archibald Washington Breazeale b.1784,  Georges is my line Archibald Breazeale ended out in Arkansas, George had a daughter Lucinda Breazeale married or just had children with Robert M Scott  they had a daughter named Elizabeth Marzeila Breazeale 1841 1913 on some Census she has been seen as Scott but on her tombstone it says Elizabeth Marzeila Breazeale Blackstone,  these people are the reason I started researching my family and haven't got know where in 4 years of looking on these , the Lesley,  Griffin,  Trotter,  Stewart,  all these Pendleton District families is connected to these Breazeale ' s  just had to get this out there maybe someone will know something,  Thanks for all the help yall, do
