Hi Donnie,

As you may have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the US Southern Colonies Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. We have also changed the criteria for membership. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know whether you would like to remain in the project and, if so, which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address. I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Many thanks,

Susie, US Southern Colonies Project Co-Leader

CHURCH/CEMETERY HISTORY:

Spearman descendants, believes that Edmund Spearman and his wife, Dinah Oldham, are buried in this cemetery along with their son and daughter-in- law, David Samuel "Samuel" Spearman and his wife, Nancy Clardy. They came from Caroline County, VA. URL: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/203379999?createdMemorial=Yes

Shiloh has a long and fine history in this upstate corner of South Carolina. In a community known back then as Golden Springs, there was a general merchandise store which handled the mail delivered by pony express from Williamston Railroad Station. In this early 1800 community, the Holy Spirit directed the organization of a church. It began as Shiloh Methodist Episcopal Church in 1815. Land for the building site was donated by the late David Spearman family. He was a strong layman who gave leadership for many years. From the beginning until the present time, his descendants have been members of this church. Shiloh’s first building was of log construction, which was replaced before the Civil War by a frame building in 1860. This frame building served as sanctuary until it was replaced by the former brick building in 1938 that stood until 1995. Now in a forth sanctuary, members worship in a grand and beautiful sanctuary.

+7 more children if they are this many more I can't find them, possibly daughter https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?dbid=60525&h=114628862&indiv=try&o_vc=Record:OtherRecord&rhSource=7667

Both Laban and Joshua Dodson were married to women named Mary. Laban was married to Mary Ann Martin - see the marriage source for Laban Dodson.
posted by Carol Wilder
I am aware that Laban Dodson's wife was Mary Ann Martin. Mary Ann is named as his wife in the biography with the exact date of their marriage with a source cited for the marriage record. I have not yet created a profile for Mary Ann.

Hey Donnie,

I have no idea about Jasper or Susan Clardy or another wife. Please take it on and find information to beef them up. I have abandoned them for you to take on - I think they may be related through my Hunt line via the Mauldin's?
