Mr Taylor is correct, maj Robert Lide was born 1734. His father Robert Lide was born 1669 in Llanwddyn, Wales and was married to Lowry Jones. Maj. Lide had three marriages, Prissalie Fort, Sarah Kolb and his third wife was Mary Holloway. There is great history regarding his marriages;
Prissalie Fort was killed at their wedding reception by a bullet fired at Maj. Lide by a Tory enemy who was hiding in the bushes. Sarah Kolb, with whom the Major had seven children, collapsed in shock thinking Maj. Lide had died when Charleston fell, and she was dead by the time the Major returned to Society Hill. Mary Holloway was a young widow who brought 4 of her own children to the marriage. When her oldest daughter Jane was 15, she married Major Lide's son James.
Robert also had children with Mary Holloway.
