Does anyone recognize Newman Gary & his family? I'd like info on his daughter Mary R. McDowell, wife of Thomas. The will suggests there was no love lost between old Newman & his son-in-law.

"I Newman Gary of the District of Laurens and State of South Carolina..." will wife Elizabeth Gary my whole estate. After her death, divide into 3 equal shares: one "to my friend Daniel be held by him in trust for the sole and separate use and benefit of my daughter Mary R. McDowell, the wife of Thomas McDowell, during her natural life, the said property in no Event, or the income thereof to be subject, to the debts, contracts, control of her husband..." 2nd share to granddaughter Louisa Elizabeth Gary, daughter of deceased son Jessee R. Gary; 3rd share to children [unnamed] of deceased daughter Pamela C. Pyles... Executor: Addison T. Martin. Witnesses: Daniel Mangum, Bela R. Mangum, Asa B. Davis
Will made 25 November 1848; recorded date not available. Recorded Will Bk A., Page 119, Bdl. 110, Pkg. 13.
