|About Our Roots in Calhoun Falls, SC

Over the last 20 years I've been researching primary and collateral lines, as well as neighbors from the vicinity of Calhoun Falls, Abbeville Co, SC. So, this site has about 5,000 names! However, not all the people listed are relatives. By far the largest trees include my maternal lines, Footes and Lees (Collateral: Rollinson, Brooks, Belcher, Davis, Calhoun, McDuffie, etc) and paternal lines: Walker and Simpkins (Collateral: Bryant, Cade, Irvin, Glover, Postell, Raindrop, Webber, etc). I have gratefully included the work of two researchers who have joined the ancestors. Eugene Johnson, the first cousin once removed of my first cousin twice removed, has significant research on the Johnson Family from Abbeville Co, SC. Nellie Brooks, my fourth cousin, is someone I never had a chance to meet, but fortunately their Brooks line had preserved the knowledge of their Foote ancestress, and "meeting" on the internet brought our lines back together. I would love to expand on the lines of anyone else that you find listed here. Hopefully with the effort and input of many researchers we will find errors and missing pieces so that we will create a bridge to the past. Please do not just copy and paste the relationships as gospel. In some cases I'm showing working hypotheses that need proof! When in doubt, email me :-) I consider myself a family historian, not necessarily a genealogist. In other words, DNA is only one aspect of how our ancestors created and supported our family. You did not have to share blood to be claimed as kin. Sankofa - To go back and fetch that which was lost!
