John Box, Sr., a probable son of Robert and Phillis Box of New Castle Co., Delaware and Laurens Co., South Carolina. would have been born before 1749. He first appears in official records of SC in a precept dated February 5, 1765 for a survey of 150 acres on Little River. He sold that tract to Francis Moore in 1769 and was granted a tract of 100 acres on Reedy River in 1769. In 1791, a deposition by Abraham Box established that his father, John Box, had a brother named Henry Box. This John Box appears in the 1790, 1800, 1810 and 1820 census of Laurens Co. South Carolina. As John Box, Sr. in 1807, he sold land on Reedy River that had been granted to Robert Box, presumed to be his father. On November 22, 1815, he wrote his will naming his surviving heirs: wife: Rachel; sons: Shadrack, Robert. Abraham and Benjamin; daughters: Molly South, Rachel Banks, and Jemima Sneid; grandson: Elisha Williamson and granddaughters: Rachel and Louisa Box whose mother was Jemima Box. The inclusion of these grandchildren imply he had a deceased son, John Box. Jr (not named in will) who was father of the granddaughters, Rachel and Louisa Box, and a deceased daughter,(also not named in will) who would have been the mother of the grandson, Elisha Williamson. The will of John Box was proven February 5. 1821 in Laurens District, SC.
