In Reply to: John Box 1795-1800 NC, Brother William Box.1805 SC, Both Moved From SC to Southe by William Boxx of 2302

I see no direct connection but this Joseph Box of Laurens Co. SC and his son William have similar names and do not have an obvious connection to the Box families that were in the censuses of 1790 and 1800.

Also included in the collection are letters from William's father, Joseph B. Box, who wrote from Laurens District on 26 June 1862 informing William of his involvement in a quarrel over reports that he had incited slaves to mischief while their masters were away. By mid-1863, it seems, Joseph Box was living on the homestead of his son and daughter-in-law, for a 21 July 1863 letter from Joseph alludes to his disagreements with Margret and proposes that William bear the cost for his father to move.
