Re: Found Family

Yes, I have documentation for almost everything! George Sinclair Capers is not my direct ancestor. His nephew, Sinclair Capers DesChamps is... His father, Louis Miles DesChamps,was the older brother of George Sinclair Capers DesChamps. I am working on my files at the moment and have so many papers out that I’m not going to dig through them today.
You can find some things on line...the Will of Francis DesChamps (d.1821) mentions both George Sinclair Capers and Louis Miles. Both are the sons of Francis DesChamps and Susanna Joy, dau. of Richard Joy, there is also another brother,Francis DesChamps who died early.

I believe that the Parish Register of St. James, Santee: 1758-1788 is also on line

Don’t confuse George Sinclair Capers DesChamps with George Sinclair Capers. The families were friends and frequently associated. I have known people to see only the similarities and jump onto the Capers family.

I'll be happy to help you however I can, which includes copying my documents and the family Bible but not today.
