Hi Carol. At this time I do not. Elisabeth Cox married into the William O Bryan family, and I have learned that my Great Great Grandfather Bryan owned 3 large plantations (500 acres, up to 1,700 acres in Horry County. My Greatgrandmother grew up on one of them.

I will print out your info here, and if I come across something I will send it to you. Carol, you may also contact me at my email addy.

I relate to your frustration. On my birth father's side, my Great, Greatgrandmother was full blooded Cherokee. Trying to find anything is like looking for a needle in a haystack. My Tribe was rounded up, their homes, etc conficated, and put on the Trail of Tears, Nov 1836, from Nashville, walking to Oklahoma. Most of my Tribe died on the trail. Those that survived formed what today is called the "Western Band of the Cherokees". Those that succeeded in hiding in the mountain caves formed what today is known as the "Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation". I believe my line is descended from the Eastern Band "hideouts", but, REALLY HARD to find solid info. Wishing you the best, Carol. And, Merry Christmas!!! ;-)
