A Sense of the Era

In the photo gallery above, these records and citations provide a glimpse into the family history of the O'Neal, Dunbar, Lincoln, Edwards, DeWitt, Hodge, Bostic families, primarily of Darlington, Florence, Marion, Lee, Chesterfield, and Marlboro Counties in South Carolina, USA.  We have found when we are transparent; other family historians, regardless of race, begin to share similar stories--cousin marriages, age differences of spouses, and mixed race families to name a few.  In turn, we inspire each other to reach deeper into family lineage.  As research continues, the Christian Children's song, "Jesus Loves the Little Children" comes to mind.
