I have Cyrus Pendarvis, son of William Pendarvis and Nancy Ann Hope. William and Nancy were living in Nassau County, Florida and married about before 1856 as Cyrus was born in 1856. Cyrus Pendarvis married Lucinda Bronson about 1872 in Sumter County, Florida. Their oldest child was Emma Pendarvis. Both Emma and her husband Charles Beck as well as Cyrus and Lucinda were buried at Beulah Baptist Church Cemetery in Orange County, Florida. Lucinda Bronsons parents were living in McIntosh County, Georgia in 1850. I am attempting to discover if another female in McIntosh County named Rachel Pendarvis is connected to the Pendarvis family in South Carolina. Rachel's record on the 1860 census says she was born in South Carolina so I am assuming it was her husband who was a Pendarvis. Here is the particular reason I am interested in Rachel Pendarvis and this may turn out not to be a connection but it is intriguing me non the less. In 1850 in Darlington County, South Carolina lived the family of James Hamilton Bozeman and his wife Emily. Apparently James and Emily Bozeman both died before 1860 because their daughters were placed with several families living in McIntosh County, Georgia-one of whom was Rachel Pendarvis. This daughter was Catherine Bozeman. Another of the Bozeman daughters, Bethina was placed with the family of Reubin O'Berry who in 1850 was living in McIntosh County but in 1860 had moved to Marion County, Florida. Bethina, called Thena on the census married William Driggers. Their daughter Matilda married Reubin O'Berry's nephew James S. O'Berry. The James S.and Matilda O'Berry family is also buried in Beulah Baptist Church Cemetery-the same place Cyrus Pendarvis is buried. I wonder if there is any kind of connection between the Pendarvis, O'Berry, and Bozeman families. It's a stretch but makes me quite curious.
