I have quite a bit of info on the Ridgeville Brownlees - obtained from other kind Ancestry.com members. Take a look at Cavazzi Family Tree and search for Cyrus Mims, Noel Brownlee, and you will see many other Brownlees.
In spite of getting some good info [like Civil War history for Noel's sons and nephews - and Cyrus Mims marriages to Brownlee daughters], we are still puzzled by not finding any links to the Brownlees in Abbeville, Laurens and Anderson, SC.
The Grunsky Tree links back from Noel to a John and then to John's father James. I have asked where this info came from, but have yet to get a reply.
Once one goes back to Noel's father John or further - although there are mentions of a John Sr, a George and a Levinia (Lavinia), she is missing from the Grunsky Tree. There seems to be no hard documentation for John or his ancestors.
Any help will be very appreciated.
