Isaiah DuBose (Blakeney connection)
Posted by: DuBose Blakeney (ID *****3156) Date: July 05, 2007 at 17:34:57
  of 678

I am searching for the burial location and death date of my great-great grandfather, Isaiah DuBose (born 11/27/1781 in Jamestown, SC, death date unknown). Isaiah DuBose was the son of Elias DuBose (born 10/19/1737, Jamestown, SC, died 3/16/1789). Elias DuBose was the son of John DuBose (born 1706, died 1778). John DuBose was the son of Isaac DuBose I (born 1665, died 1718). One of Isaiah DuBose's daughters, Virginia M. DuBose, is my great grandmother. She married James White Blakeney. I know where each of them is buried.

Isaiah DuBose is shown on the Federal Census records of 1810, 1820, 1830, 1850 and 1860. All census records show him living in Darlington, SC. He is not shown on a census beyond 1860. He was widowed in 1852. In the 1860 census he is shown as living with a McIver family in Darlington, SC. The McIver family head's name is A. E. McIver, and his wife's name was I.W. McIver. They had 2 children at that time. I assume that Isaiah DuBose was living with one of his daughters, who had married a McIver. However, Isaiah DuBose had no daughters with the initials I. W., so maybe it was a granddaughter. Isaiah DuBose's wife, Gillie Hinton Benton DuBose, died in 1852 and she is buried in the Darlington (SC) Presbyterian Church grave yard. However, the cemetery survey does not show that he is buried there with her.

I have searched the state of South Carolina's cemetery surveys for that part of the state and cannot locate him. I feel like he would have been buried near Darlington, SC since he spent most of his life there.

Can anyone help me please?
