I recently located some information that seems to connect my ROBERTSON line to that of the LUCIUS Family in Edgefield Co., SC.

Here's what I have:

Nicholas ROBERTSON and Sarah MARKS m abt 1691;

Their son, John ROBERTSON (abt 1695, Bristol Parish, Charles City Co., VA -- bef 5/1774, Granville (now Vance) Co., NC) m Mary EVANS (John's brother, Israel, is my 7th great grandfather).

John and Mary had a son, Robert ROBERTSON (1734, Bristol Parish, Prince George Co., VA -- abt 1803, Edgefield Co., SC) who married Lucretia ABERNATHY,d/o David ABERNATHY & Christina TILGHMAN,

Their son, Elisha ROBERTSON (d 1795, Edgefield Co., SC)m Sarah (unknown surname), they had the following children; (probably more children from this marriage)
1. Elisha Gill ROBERTSON
2. Lydia ROBERTSON m William Gardiner
3. William ROBERTSON m Nancy (unknown surname)

Here are some facts that I found that may relate to Elisha ROBERTSON's line;

I also located this info:

Volume 11 includes the descendants of Samuel and Nancy Ann (ROBERTSON) LUCIUS of Edgefield District South Carolina who later settled in Chickasaw County, (MS) abt 1843
(Snippet of info)
The Genealogical helper? - Page 118

Ebenezer LUCIUS, son of Samuel, was a private in Co D, 2 Reg1 t Miss. State Cavalry and a descriptive list given on him, shows he was born in Edgefield Co. (no preview)

Rev. Samuel F. LUCIUS
Religion and politics in colonial South Carolina By John Wesley Brinsfield

I found Sanford ROBERTSON, living one residence away from Nancy LUCIUS & her family in the 1850 Census

1850 Census 11/23/1850
Sanford Robertson 22 yrs SC farmer
Permelia Robertson 24 yrs SC
Thomas Robertson 1 yr MS
2 doors next to:
Nancy Lucius 29 yrs farmer SC
Matthew Lucius 18 yrs SC
Wright Burelson 27 yrs farmer NC
Ebenezer Lucius 17 yrs SC
Westley Lucius 15 yrs SC
Sanford Lucius 12 SC
Frederick Lucius 12 SC
Agnes Lucius 10 SC
Olive Lucius 8 SC
Year: 1850; Census Place: Western Division, Chickasaw, Mississippi; Roll M432_369; Page: 414; Image: 441.

Please excuse any error, I have not verified all of this information myself.

I am looking for more information on the LUCIUS and ROBERTSON connection.
