My goodness, you are sitting right between Laurens and Newberry, sC. What a great place to be!! We have spent a week in Columbia each of the past two years and have only scratched the surface of the research we need to complete. We plan to be back there in the Spring to do some more digging.

I misread your previous post. I read it to say that Mary Ann, sister of James who married Mary Henderson instead of his daughter. I agree, James had a daughter Mary that married a Pitts. He gave her one dish one basin six plates and a case of knives and forks in his will. Hannah Henrietta (Ritter) was still a Waldrop when James died. Somewhere I picked up information that she married a Pitts. I have that James also mentioned a daughter, Nancy Pitts in his will. He gave Nancy and Ritter a choice of all of his negros should his wife remarry. I believe I have a copy of the original will. I will get it out tomorrow and make sure I don't have a transcription error. Nancy and Mary can look alike in the old records. And, James didn't give Nancy anything else.

As to Samuel, Jr., the son of Samuel and Susannah Griffin that Susannah was "big with" when Samuel died in 1800, there is supposed to be a record in his estate papers that show his wife, Susan gave the administrator of his estate (he died intestate) consent to sell 5 slaves deeded to her by her father Batt Wyche. I don't have a copy of the original document. I have an abstract.

I do have a copy of Samuel, Jr.'s estate settlement in 1841. Susan J. Waldrop received $4526.34 and each of her six children received 1508.78 1/3.

I will verify that the consent to sell the slaves actually says Batt Wyche and not just "her father" when we are in SC next year.

It may or may not interest you to know that while we were in Raleigh, NC this year, we found the Granville Co., NC tax lists. On several of them Michael Waldrop is named as a son of Luke Waldrop. We didn't know Luke had a son Michael. Luke Jr., James and John were also named on the lists.

Somewhere among the SC Waldrops, I have a GrGrGrGrandpa...just not sure where...
