John Durst born 1806 Edgefield South Carolina
Posted by: Kathy Rhodes (ID *****8219) Date: April 02, 2007 at 04:53:11
  of 406

Could someone help me with this DURST family found living in Edgefield Co South Carolina in 1850, 1860 and 1870?

John Durst born ~ 1806
wife: Clarrisa A. Durst born ~ 1815
Thomas N. Durst born ~ 1838-1839
Mary L. Durst born ~ 1842
William L. Durst born ~ 1844-1846
Elizabeth H. Durst born ~ 1849-1852
John K. Durst born ~ 1851-1854

In 1850 they are in "The District" of Edgefield Co.
In 1860 they are in "Saluda Regiment" Post Office: Kirksey's Crossroads or Kerksey's Crossroads, Edgefield Co.
In 1870 they are in "Gray", Kirksey's Crossroads or Kerksey's Crossroads, Edgefield Co.

In 1850 living next door to John Durst is the family of:

William Durst born ~ 1830 SC
Elizabeth Durst born ~ 1799

Can't tell the relationship of the two folks listed above but looks like a grown son with his widowed mother in his hh? Anyone know which DURST this Elizabeth born 1799 married? Was she the sister in law of John Durst?

In 1860 living next door to John Durst is the family of:

Frances H. Rhodes (a widow?) born ~ 1832-1835
Her children:
Henry W. Rhodes born ~ 1851-1853
Emma A. Rhodes born ~ 1853-1854
James L. Rhodes born ~ 1855-1856
Harris Rhodes born ~ 1856-1857
W. F. Rhodes born ~ 1857
M. Cullin or M. Cullen Rhodes born ~ 1859

Can anyone tell me if this Frances H. Rhodes was perhaps born a DURST and who her RHODES husband was? Was this Frances H. Durst a sister to the William Durst born ~ 1830 who is living with the Elizabeth Durst born ~ 1799?

Any help you can give would be appreciated:

Maiden name of Clarrisa A. Durst?
Siblings or parents of John Durst?

ANY known RHODES connections to the DURST family of Edgefield SC.
