Thanks so much for your reply and interesting Belser-Staggers family data. I've just started researching the STAGGERS and am trying to put individuals and families into the right places. Many family trees and messages on the genealogy forums don't give their sources, unfortunately, so I'm trying to gather up documentation for all the names and dates we're finding.
Anything you might have on the early STAGGERS in South Carolina would be a great help. There seem to have been at least three men named "John Staggers" in different generations, with the man who served under Francis Marion during the Revolution probably being the husband of "Barbary Staggers" who was counted in the 1790 SC census as a head of household. "John Staggers" also in that census appears to have been her adult son of four sons: John, Martin, George, and William.
A number of the STAGGERS from Williamsburg settled in Butler County, Alabama, in the 1820s, and were counted there in the 1830 census -- including the main line I'm interested in: John H. Staggers, son of John of the 1790 SC census and grandson of (John?) and Barbary/Anna Barbara Staggers. There was at least one Staggers family who settled in Lowndes County (widow Ann J. Staggers with children) and a family in Tuscaloosa County (David Martin Staggers, as "Martin" with wife Hester).
You're welcome to write me directly at my home e-mail address if you'd like, and I'll continue posting STAGGERS data on that forum.
