My 2nd great grandmother Sarah Barnes B. 1821 was born in Garden's Corner SC near Beaufort. Later her husband William M. Hazel b. 1817 owned a plantation in Hardeeville.
The Leonardo Andrea Files list a Garden's Corner marriage settlement between and Eliza (widow of William Barnes SR.)and Robert Ferguson. A Mr.Hudson JP, a William M.Hazel and other Barnes all appear as witnesses etc. on the document. I am trying to find the parents of my grandmother Sarah Barnes Hazel. It could be Eliza widow of William Barnes Sr.
Later census records show a young Eliza Barnes living in the Robert Ferguson household. Maybe a younger daughter of Eliza Barnes Ferguson and Robert Ferguson by her first husband William Barnes the elder.
Later Robert Ferguson Jr. son of the elder Robert Ferguson, has an Eliza Eaton and her young daughter Clara Eaton living with him and wife Mary. Her father ? Eaton is listed as having been born in PA.
I know for certain my grandmother Sarah Barnes Hazel was born in Garden's Corner. SC I am wondering how and when Clara Eaton's father came from PA to SC/GA and married into the Ferguson/Barnes family. What was his first name and where in PA was he from?
