Barbara: Do you know Elbert Hancock? He is researching the Lorenzo Doe Belvin line, and lives, as you do near where their farm was. His email is You may want to get together with him.

For my part, I have very little on this line. Henry Dow Belvin was born pm 3 Oct 1842, I assume in Sumter District, SC. He died 2 Feb 1903 in Lee County, SC and is buried at Beulah United Methodist Church, which is located 5 miles south of Camden via Hwy 521, Road 12 to Beulah Church Road.

Sarah "Sallie" Caughman was born 2 April 1847 and died in 1924. This information comes from their tombstones.

Many of their children are buried in this same cemetery. They are: Alice who married Melvin Hancock, J. Addie who married John Hancock, Qummia O. who married Governor Manning Rodgers, Sumter Edward who married Flora Alice McIntosh, Thomas Sisney who married Leada Munn, Vida who married Lee Hasty, Walter W. who married Ida Yates. Harry Britton who married Marion Murphy, Eva H. who married Clarence Young; Minnie Pery who married John H. Hopkins.

Pete Belvin of Marshallville, GA, now deceased, wrote a book on the Belvin family. This is his research. He also names the grandchildren of Henry Dow Belvin and Sallie Caughman.

This is what I have on Bernard Caughman:(also from Pete)
Born 1818, died 24 May 1886. Married Caroline Deas. Born ____ 26, 1812, died 26 Aug 1894 (?). Their children were: Joe, Jim, Tom, Frank, Alice (born 28 Dec 1854, died 21 January 1937)who married J.W. Lee (born 28 August 1851, died 13 April 1927), Sarah who married Henry Dow Belvin, Nora who married Richard "Dick" Mathis and Anna.

Buried in St. John's Cemetery in Spring Hill are: Frank Moses Caughman, born 31 January 1861; died 17 March 1944 and his wife, Emma Goff Caughman, born 25 Dec 1869, died 7 Sept 1896 alond with a second wife Janie McNeil Caughman, born 26 July 1869 died in 1962.
There is also a TA Caughman born 15 Feb 1857, died 15 Nov 1910 and a J.B. Caughman born 14 July 1859, died 22 April 1895. Also Nora Caughman Mathis (born 18 Nov 1848, died 16 May 1935)and her husband Richard R. Mathis
(born 20 April 1849, died 20 Oct 1907.)

The cemetery information came from The Cemetery Surveys of Old Sumter District, SC.
Hope this helps. Would you send me what you have?
At Red Hill Baptist Church Cemetery, there is a Joseph C. Caughman Co. GSC Inf. CSA buried next to Mary Caughman born 16 May 1844, died 9 Oct 1923. I assume she is his wife. J.W. Lee (born 28 Aug 1851, died 13 April 1927) and his wife Alice Caughman Lee (Born 28 Dec 1854, died 21 January 1937)are buried there also.
