Re: Edward Box d. 1818 Pendleton Dist./Co.,SC

In Reply to: Edward Box d. 1818 Pendleton Dist./Co.,SC by Joyce Pruhs of 2301

I note that the 1810 census for Pendleton County, SC has a Nancy Box. In the household are one male u-10, one male 10-15, one female u-10, one female 10-15, and one female 26 through 44. This is the only Box family listed in Pendleton for 1810. Of the names shown in the land record you report, I find in the 1810 census for Pendleton: John Morris, who is listed ten names down from Nancy, and Drury Jeffries, who is three pages after Nancy. The name Edward Box is also mentioned in an 1814 land record for Drury Jeffers on Tugaloo River in Pendleton District. With these indications, it looks like this Nancy Box could be the wife of the Edward of your cited land record. If so, what happened to the two sons in her 1810 household who are not listed with Nancy and daughters in your 1818 cited land record? And was Edward away and not counted by the census taker (I donít know how they were to handle husbands who might have been temporarily gone) or was he already deceased in 1810? In addition, there is an 1818 William Box plat for 72.5 acres on Tugaloo River in Pendleton, per SC archives. Is he the same as your referenced William or someone else? Thanks for your post.

Bill
