Hello everyone,
I'm very curious to know more about the Doolittles of Edgefield, SC. Rhoda Ann Doolittle was born 1820 and died April 12, 1839. She married George Washington Thurmond (Strom's grandfather) in 1836 and died 3 years after. A slave named Elizabeth (Eliza) Doolittle came to live with Rhoda and George, perhaps her father willed her to them. Later in 1870, Eliza and her grandson Pharoah was found to be living with the elderly Pleasant and Henrietta Doolittle. Does anyone have any information or copies of wills or property regarding the Edgefield, SC Doolittles and their slave/servants Elizabeth and Pharoah? I would be deeply appreciative of any help, thank you.
