Is anyone else researching KOON "varient spellings found" residing within the Richland/Kershaw County areas?

Because of the misc spellings found it's been quite a trial locating sources UGH!!!

I'm trying to locate background information to determine if George KOON b. abt 1789 SC is related to the known Hans Casper KUHN and if so how.

George KOON and his wife are my brick wall <sigh>

1840: UNKN Twp, Richland Co., SC cdpg007, head of household: George Coon, 2-3-1-1-0-0-1-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-0-0-0-0-1-0-0-0-0-1-1 (this census would put George at the appox. age and his children)

1850 Aug 10: The District, Richland Co., SC cdpg018, head of household:
(not indicated but verified is a son Lewis L. Koon b. 1823 SC)

Alfred Coon age: 22 b. SC, Laborer
George Coon age: 20 b. SC, Laborer

1870 Aug 03: Camden PO, Wateree, Kershaw Co., SC cdpg010, widowed father: George Koon age: 81 b. SC, Carpenter, residing w/married son: Lewis L. Koon age: 47 b. SC, Farmer and his wife Cynthia age: 50 b. SC, keeping house

1880 Jun 05-07: Wateree Dist 76, Kershaw Co., SC cdpg019, widowed father George Coon age: 96 b. SC SC SC, residing w/son Lewis Coon age: 60 b. SC SC SC, Miller and his family

I've been able to establish 4 sons of George especially son Osborne Edward KOON and his descendants but I'm having a dickins of a time locating resources for George and Johanna KOON.

Thank you, Catherine
