Believe Matthew V. CLEVELAND ties into the TUGALOO RIVER/CLEVELAND'S FERRY
branch of the CLEVELAND families that lived in
Oconee/Abbeyville/Pickens/Pendleton Co.'s, SC as well as in Hart/Franklin
Believe Martha A. M. ELLIS ties into the PINE LOG branch of the ELLIS
families that lived in Cass/Bartow Co.'s, GA as well as in
Pickens/Pendleton/Edgefield Co.'s SC.
Am hoping that you can help us place these orphans (Brenda's GGG
Grandparents) with their families! Thanking you in advance.
