Seeking info on Sarah Bardrayne/ Bordranyne, b. 1709 of Stafford Co. VA where she mar. Philemon Waters b. 1711. They removed to Charleston S.C. where child. were bapt. at St. Philip's and then to upper South Carolina (Old 96th Dist.) and died there. Thier son Col. Philemon Waters, b. 1734 in Prince Williman Co. VA, served in the French & Indian Wars with Washington was one of 4 who carried the body of Gen. Braddock from the field at the disastrous battle of Mongahela. He served in the Am. Rev. from SC & his twin sister Rosannah Waters Farrow is listed as a "heroine" of the Am. Rev. It is widely reported that their mother Sarah was Huguenot. Have read that Col. Wm. Fitzhugh of Stafford Co., VA had plans to build a town for Huguenots in that Co. -- but not sure that it was ever carried out. Any clues to her family or Anglicization of her name? A grandson is referred to as "Brandywine" in the SC records while his name was Bordroyne. Patillo <firstname.lastname@example.org>
