Re: Lundys of SC

In Reply to: Lundys of SC by carlus love of 1506

I disagree with the William Lundy born 1793 being the son of Drury Lundy. In the early 2000s I had the benefit of corresponding with Mr William A Ranck Jr who wrote "The Lundy Book" which chronicles the Lundys descended from James Lundy Sr from Brunswick CO, VA to Cheraw District of SC. He was a descendent of Drewery William Lundy, Drury's son, and teh book mostly goes into the ancestry of Drury Lundy.
In 1814 Drury Lundy moved with his family to Amite CO, MS. He had the following children; Abraham Lundy b 1783, Simon Lundy b 1786, William Lundy b 1792, Clarissa Lundy b 1795, Drewery William Lundy b 1802. Abraham married Elizabeth Arnold in Amite MS and died 17 Nov 1817 Amite MS. William married Elizabeth Scott Oct 8 1814 in Amite Co MS. He died Oct 5 1839 in Amite Co MS. His children were William, daughter, daughter, Elevia b 1833 all in Pike Co MS.
Drewery William Lundy b 1802 married Elizabeth McGee in Amite MS and his children are Lucy A, Elizabeth Ann, Olivia Jane, Drewery William Jr, John, Missouri M; born all in AMite CO MS.
As youc an see it is not the same William Lundy. There were 4 brothers who moved to Chesterfield are of SC in 1750-60s. Abraham, Daniel, James and Simon. Abraham's line used to be chronicled on a website by A J Boyd. He moved to ST George's Parish, GA in 1759. The following is from a history: Lundy, Abraham Sept 1760 been 10 months in Georgia has wife, 3 children and four slaves asks for 400 acres. Abraham's sons with his wife Mary were Nathaniel, Theophilus, and MAtthew. I no longer have their complete history, unfortunately but I know that the family stayed in GA and then some moved on to Alabama. I also know they don't line up to William of Darlington SC as well.
That leaves us with James and Daniel. Of the two, the most recorded was Daniel. He served in the Cherokee war and was very active in the parish. He also has many land deeds. Back in 2000 the 1790 census listed him as having no males. According to ancestry.com he now has 2 listed there which kind of has changed everything.
1790 census

Name:        Daniel Lundy
Township:        St Thomas
County:        Cheraws District
State:        South Carolina
Number of Free White Males Under 16:        2
Number of Free White Males 16 and Over:        1
Number of Free White Females:        2
Number of Household Members:        5

If they are under 16 then they are probably grandchildren.

Of James there has never been much info, he was in some deeds as a witness. Ancestry.com has James in a 1790 census

1790 census
Name:        James Lundy
Township:        St Thomas
County:        Cheraws District
State:        South Carolina
Number of Free White Males 16 and Over:        2
Number of Free White Females:        2
Number of Household Members:        4

but also in a heads of household at first US census 1790

Name:        James Lundy
Birth Date:        1750

Page Number:        461
Reference:        Heads of Fams. at the first U.S. census. SC. By U.S. Bureau of the Census. Washington, 1908. (150p.):48

This would make the James Lundy in 1790 census of Cheraw District already the 4th Generation.

Of the fourth generation this is known:

There is a James according to the 1790 and 1800 census

There is a John Lundy who is listed as a Private under Gen Francis Marion in the Rev. War along with Drury, Simon's son.
There is an Amy Lundy b circa 1770? She is listed in a document stating she had a mestizo child named Stephen Lundy.

I think if we can figure out who Abigal is the widow of we can find out who William Lundy B 1793 Darlington belongs to.
Also some missing pieces from the 1850 Darlington census.
Alex Lundy b 1820 age 30 ancestry.com has them listed as Alexa Landy
wife Angelina B 1815 age 35

there was supposedly a Winney Lundy age 42 living with Jos J Cooper. Ancestry.com has her listed as Gandy.


In the 1870 census

Wm Lundy
First Name:        Wm
Last Name:        Lundy
Age at Time of Census:        70
Gender:        Male
Race:        White
Estimated Birth Year:        1800
Birth Location:        South CarolinaMap
Residence:        South CarolinaMap
Other People in Household:        

* Eliza Lundy
26 yrs, Female

* Madison Lundy
3 yrs, Male

I have William Lundy b 1800 married to Liza Lloyd: Furman Wilson Lundy ( married Anna Johnson) and Madison Lundy.
Any clue as to who these people are?
