Re: HARRISON; Edgefield Co, SC 1860

I'm looking for info on the following HARRISONs of Graniteville, Edgefield Co, SC in 1860:

John, Emma, Benjamin, Edmund, Mary H, and Rebecca.

These persons were located on the 1860 SC Census, Edgefield Dist, page 17. I don't know if they are related to my John & Emma of Colleton Co, yet.

Anyone with a copy of the census, or other related info... please send my way.

I am trying to make a connection between Matilda HARRISON b.c. 1865 Adams Run, Colleton Co, SC and her parents John & Emma HARRISON. I have land records for John & Emma for Osbourne, Adams Run, Colleton Co, SC c.1890s. Osbourne was listed as an Indian Community (re: South Carolina Indians, Indian Traders and Other Ethnic Connections; p.254).

My g-grandmother Matilda was part Indian. I'm trying to find documentation to prove this fact.

Matilda married 1st John H PENDARVIS of Adams Run; and 2nd John Henry SHOKES of Charleston.

I have information stating that Nancy Brown HARRISON is the dau. of Moses BROWN and Ann FAIRCHILD, an Indian. Moses BROWN was the son of an Indian woman by the name of Mary McINTOSH and a white man named William BROWN.

This was a statement witnessed and sealed in Charleston, 11 Dec 1833.

I also found records of a Capt John FAIRCHILD, who was a SC surveyor, ranger captain, and frontier land owner in the
1740's and 1750's, who helped protect the settlers in the back country from Indians.

Also listed during that same time was a Mr Brown, the half-breed son of Thomas BROWN, prominent Catawba trader in the 1730's.

Now, I have all this... and don't know if they are connected to my (Native American) Matilda HARRISON or not, but I'm hopeful.

Anyone with info on Native Americans of SC and/or HARRISON and related family info please write.
