I been looking for 6 years, I’m needing some one to help me on how to find out who she could have been before she married what is my first step
The area they lived in South Carolina, Keowee, Pickens, Pendleton, Anderson, this area was once called Washington’s District and then Pendleton District, so I don’t know if I’m looking in the wrong place for any kind of marriage records, (if they was one) death certificate of the children listed may would tell her maiden name but haven’t been able to locate them, my research is a little messy on these profiles but lots of this is notes that shows what I’ve looked for the Cemetery and census I’ve looked at many of the folks on the census for a daughter of age and worked many profiles and most Mary’s is been found married with sources the Cemetery the names of folks buried I’ve also built many profiles of them, I’m very lost on this lady she is my 3rd great grandmother, her husband John Hiram Blackstone died before the 1850 census assuming but she didn’t list as a widow on any census, also died end on John Hiram Blackstone on his parents on the 1830 census they was already married and was very young the only census that they would have been living with there parents would be the 1820 census (If Mary was born 1805 she maybe on two census with parents), Thanks to anyone that sees this and has any answers or if anyone is in the Greenville, Pickens, Anderson or any other libraries that can look it would be very appreciated,
Have a Great Night
