Thank you, Pamela, for the info. It is interesting that my Paul and the Laramore families are neighbors in Lee Co, in the 1860 Georgia Federal Census Index. The Lowrimore and Laramore are variances of the original spelling of Leirumour noted in the History of Lee County. These families were friends and had reunions in Leslie, Georgia, one of which I attended with my father. I cannot find any Pauls married to Larramores, however, some of this family must have remained in SC, as you say there were Paul sisters who married brothers Lowrimore who were born in the late 1870s. As for Andrew, perhaps he was buried on his massive acreage. I calculated 3,777 acres according to a copy of a deed of conveyance my father had with a map sketch and an explanation about the counties of Liberty changed to Marion in 1800 is now named Williamsburg. Winyah (?)discontinued,changed to Georgetown in 1802. Horry and Williamsburg Districts were formed from parts of Georgetown District. So, exactly where is the Georgetown Cemetery located? Andrew's eldest son, John McRae Paul, born Dec. 15,1804 could possibly be the antecedant of these Paul girls, and inherited the property. Anyway, thanks again for your reply. Virginia
