Friday, August 24th: Our eighth annual informal "Dutch treat" dinner at the Silver Bay Seafood Restaurant, 916 N. East Main Street, Simpsonville, S.C., 864-228-9705, beginning at 7:00 pm. Please email me at or call me at 770-781-5255 if you are planning to attend so I can reserve adequate space at the restaurant.

Saturday, August 25th: We are having a dedication service at our David Traynham Family Cemetery beginning at 2:00 pm - weather permitting! We will be dedicating our cemetery sign, a rock bench constructed by Tim Thurston in honor of his Great Grandfather Martin Traynham and Grandmother Ruth Traynham White, 32 additional engraved Memorial Bricks with a brief history of those buried in the cemetery and placement of a Confederate Veteran Marker at the headstone of George Anderson Traynham (1847 - 1865). Anderson was fourteen years old in 1861 and too young to enlist in the Confederacy. One of his older brothers came home on leave and he went back to the war with him - Clemmon and Elizabeth, his parents, received a letter at the end of the war that George Anderson was missing in action - he never returned home.

The service will last about 30 minutes so please bring a folding chair if you need to sit during the ceremony.

After this short service, we will be going back to Washington Baptist Church in Pelzer for those wanting to view family scrapbooks, family historical data, etc. Tables and chairs will be setup in the tent for this event and ice water, sweet tea and lemonade will be available.

I am pleased to announce that Ruth Ellen White Thurston has agreed to join our David Traynham Cemetery Board. Ellen is committed to insuring that our Traynham history/heritage is preserved including our family cemetery! Thank you Ellen for your wonderful spirit and enthusiasm!

Please advise Becky Henderson at 864-963-5797 or if you have particular family historical books you are interested in viewing on Saturday.

Directions to cemetery: From I-85 and US25/291 intersection travel south on US25 (Augusta Road) approximately 11 miles to intersection SC Route 8 (Pelzer Highway) - there is a four way light at that intersection. Continue on Highway 25 for 10.8 miles veering left onto Highway 76. Once on Highway 76 take an immediate left onto Latimer Mill Road. You will pass Traynham Road on your left, but do not turn there. The cemetery is approximately 3.3 miles from Highway 76 and Latimer Mill Road. There is a wooden sign on your left that reads "David Traynham Cemetery" - you have to look carefully to see it. You will be able to drive down the dirt road to the cemetery unless we have had heavy rains - then park on the road please.

Sunday, August 26th: Our 54th annual Traynham Family Picnic will be held at Washington Baptist Church, 208 Washington Baptist Church Road, Pelzer, S.C. The doors will open at 11:30 am and lunch will start at 1:00 pm. Please remember to bring a meat, covered dish, dessert, sweet tea and soft drinks as only paper plates, cups and utensils are supplied by the reunion.

New Traynham Family Reunion Historian:

We welcome our new Traynham Family Reunion Historian Marlon Bourque. He is very enthusiastic and has been busy preparing the following for our Saturday and Sunday events:

Three tri-board displays representing our Traynham Family Tree; he will have his laptop with the Traynham master index available for anyone wanting to trace their family back to Virginia and he will have signup sheets for those wanting him to help with future family research. For those not attending the reunion, Marlon can be reached at, 337-254-0037 or P.O. Box 98, Monterey, LA 71354. Please keep in mind that he has a full time job, so responding to your inquiries could be delayed.

Marlon would like to encourage everyone to bring copies of family articles, stories and pictures. He will hopefully be establishing a new Traynham Family Reunion of S.C. website. He and Becky Henderson will be sharing information and pictures on an ongoing basis!

Activities on Sunday for the Young and Young at Heart:

Becky League, Kami League and Jacqueline Elletson send the following message regarding fun activities planned for the young and young at heart:

"Time flys when you're having fun! We can't believe it's been almost a year since our last reunion! It was so much fun and this year will be even better - where do we start ... Kami will have Slime Making and Handprint crafts for the kids! For cooling off there will be a Sprinkle Tent for kids and kids at heart so bring a towel! WOW - if you think that is a lot of fun for one day we are not through yet! There will be Badminton and a Corn Hole toss along with another new activity that is added this year - a Picture Swap Table will be setup for those wanting to bring copies of family photos to swap - please encourage your young ones to participate - it will be a great opportunity for them to start their own extended family photo book. We suggest that they bring 10-15 copies of each picture with names and family info on each picture. We can't wait to see everyone at this year's reunion!"

We have many, many family members who have never attended our reunion. We want to meet and greet you at any or all of the events. Please don't be shy! I guarantee you will be welcomed with open arms and Traynham hugs! Everyone will have on name tags - there are no strangers in our family!

Our Traynham Family Cookbook Committee needs additional family recipes. Please bring them with you to the reunion or send to Becky Henderson, 204 N. Almond Drive, Simpsonville, S.C. 29681-3404.

The book "Traynham Family of South Carolina: Settlement, Life & Burials in Greenville, South Carolina 1792-2015" is available for purchase. If you pick it up at the reunion, the price is $15. If it is mailed, the price is $20. Proceeds will go to the David Traynham Cemetery Fund. Please email me if you want to pick up a book at the reunion. If you want it mailed, please send your check made out to Elaine Zimney, 3350 Carlton Road, Cumming, Georgia, 30041 along with your address.

Contributions to our Cemetery or Reunion Fund are always appreciated!

Love to all,

JOIN US ON FACEBOOK We are having so much fun on Facebook and at the website where we share news about the Reunion! Join us at under “Traynham Family-Greenville, S.C.” and at A Note From Pete & Kathe Traynham: To all of you, thank you so much for the opportunity to contribute to this wonderful family Reunion for the past – goodness, more than ten years now! We have had a blast getting to know so many of you, but especially dear Wayne and Evelyn Traynham, and we were treated like royalty when we attended the two Reunions we managed to include on trips south. Also, John Traynham and Elaine Zimney have always been loving and inclusive. Kathe has been the family historian for her lines for nearly 50 years, going back to the 1630s on this continent. Little did she know she married a man whose father had no idea where the Traynhams originated. In quick order, we were able to connect because the older generations made sure the stories and genealogy were kept and the Traynham Reunion of South Carolina has always honored the past. Our lives are increasingly keeping us north and even farther north. We do not anticipate being able to attend future Reunions at all, and it would be unfair of Kathe not to turn over the duties of genealogist, and this newsletter to the next generations, and for Pete the privilege of being Rev. and Civil Wars Historian, while we still have enough faculties to do so. Thank you, all of you, for connecting the Traynham past for our children and their children. We keep you in our prayers. Stay in touch! Pete and Kathe Traynham 7621 Provincial Drive Apt. 308, McLean, VA 22102 703-734-0663

He sold it to John Langley on 10/29/1817 for ​$160, who turned around and sold it to Philip Sitton on the same day for ​$175. It looks as though this land was divided in half, because Willis ​bought 91 acres 13 years later. (This info can be found at the Pickens ​County Estate Records in Box 105, File 1098)

Traynham Family B.​Willis Trainum (continued) - Died September 24, 1873 ​- Grand-daughter Elvira lived with her uncle John and took care of Willis ​ ​for 4 years and 9 months before his death. Willis “was not able to get ​out of door, merely to slide in his chair over the house”. She had to ​“button his cloths and wash him as a child”. She petitioned the estate of ​Willis, Jeremiah was executor, for $50 per year for her services, which ​she claimed Willis wanted to pay her. She was granted $200 per year, ​but due to the “insignificant” estate that was left, she received a total of ​$237.50. John Trainum paid $2.50 for a coffin for Willis. He had ​approximately 100 acres of land at his death. ​- Pickens County Land Records shows (Book B-2 Page 692) his land was ​auctioned off to pay for his debts in March 1875 and sold to George ​McAdams for $675. How did the Traynham’s get the land back or was ​this additional land?
