Not my line. But I hope this helps. I only do this as a hobby. All my notes are posted on the message boards. Happy Hunting. ann in texas

You will have to find your ancestor.

Andrew Jackson Poston, born 1881 in Darlington SC area . Moved to Lynchburg Va. before 1910. He worked in the cotton mill there and maybe in Danville Va. I don't know anything about him in South Carolina except he was raised by two step-sisters and was born in Darlington SC. His full name was Andrew Jackson Poston and I was told he was called Jack. He was born 8/25/1881. Andrew J. Poston, died in 1946 in Virginia. A copy of his death certificate list "unknown" for the parents. It also stated, he was not a veteran. He worked in a cotton mill so I doubt he owned property. With no paper trail I think he will be a hard person to find, unless someone finds his name in connection with their family history.
