First I would like to recognize the various spellings of Cercopely, which was used by my paternal grandmother and her family. As you move further back in the ancestry other spellings pop up including Cercoply, Cercopuly, and many others. Of what I know and have some proof of is the following:
Erline Inez Cercopely (my dad's mom) born 1916 in Charleston, SC. Her father was Clarence J. Cercopely also born in Charleston and his father Joseph Wade Cercopely was also born in Charleston.
Joseph's father was George Mateo Felix Cercopely and he was born about 1837 in St. Augustine, FL. He was a confederate soldier and through this connection, my grandmother (Erline) and her sisters were members of the UDC (I am also petitioning the UDC on behalf of this connection as well as my Dandridge confederate ancestor - Dandridge is who my grandmother married). All of the above information I pretty much know as fact and at some point or another have proven.
Other family trees on ancestry.com tell me that George's father was Domingo from St. Augustine and his father was also Domingo, showing him to be born in Guam, Maine. Next is his father Teodoro Hedsorcopli, born in Empire, Dodge, Georgia in 1721.
I've been trying to read up on this family and have found various sites. The most informative so far is the Minorcan Family (http://minorcanfamily.com). There isn't much on Teodoro; however, it does state that Domingo (Teodoro's son) was born in Brazo de Mayna, Greece and died in St. Augustine, FL.
So for that one Domingo, there is a dispute over his birthplace - was it Greece or Maine, USA? And was Teodoro born in Georgia or perhaps Greece?
Any new information and documentation on this family would be greatly, greatly appreciated!!!
Feel free to contact me with anything input, comments or questions!
I look forward to hearing from anyone on this family! <3
