Robertson, Bonner, Blakely, Morgan
Posted by: Freda Noble (ID *****0050) Date: March 03, 2013 at 14:52:09

For a number of years I have tried to identify my ggggrandfather Nathaniel Robertson (born in 1765, in S.C.) among the numerous "Nathaniel Robertsons" in the South Carolina records. Below are land records that have "my" names...Nathaniel and Frances, and Bonner. My Nathaniel had two children by his first wife Amanda Blakely, William and Frances/Francis. I do not know if the "Frances/Francis" is a son or daughter.

Son William married Elizabeth Bonner. Could she be the daughter of the William Bonner in the record below?

Does anyone recognize these names? I would be grateful for any information anyone has on these land records and/or these people.

Many thanks! Freda Roberson Noble
