REDMAN SPARTANBURG/GREENVILLE COs SC 1790-1830
Post: Redman and Spartanburg-Greenville boards.
Surnames. Redman, Redmon, Redmond, Wilson, Beason, Sudduth, Bailey, Hendrix
A few years ago there were several people actively researching the numerous Redmans who were in Spartanburg/Greenville (AKA 96th District), South Carolina, from about 1790 to about 1830, As far as I know none of them were ever traced beyond Spartanburg/Greenville Counties.
For a time there was a group of researchers who were privately looking into these folks but I'm not certain they are doing so now. I would like to revive the search so if anyone can update please do so.
My connection is via John L. Redman ("Sr") who died in Searcy Co. AR about 1866. He received a land grant there for his service in the SC Militia during the War of 1812 - Alston's Regiment, Captain Manley Ford's Co. In the same company was a William Redman. Since Manley Ford was from Spartanburg Co I suspect the unit was comprised of men from that area but cannot confirm. The 1850 and 1860 Searcy Co. AR censuses show John L. Redman was born in South Carolina and that's about as far as I have gotten.
John L. Redman also had a brother named Sterling and as that name is found in the Spartanburg records (as "Starling") my hunch is that there's a link to Spartanburg. No documentation -just circumstantial evidence. I need documentation but am interested in any new leads.
