I am searching for information on the SC CANTY, KERSHAW, LARKINS & EVANS FAMILIES below, particularly on MARGARET LARKINS who married JOSIAH EVANS. If any of these names are familiar, I'd appreciate hearing from you:
"William and JOHN W. CANTY were among the first settlers of S.C. and were Irish Episcopalians. JOHN married MARGARET KERSHAW. Had several daughters and 2 sons. One daughter, TABITHA married ____ LARKINS. They had 3 daughters. LARKINS died and TABITHA married a Frenchman named LAVAUGHN, who was killed in a runaway accident in Camden. One son, JOHN, (2nd) married Mary___. They had 7 daughters and 1 son.
TABITHA CANTY married (1) LARKINS (2) LAVAUGHN." I believe that her daughter MARGARET LARKINS, who married JOSIAH EVANS, was my ancestor: "Children of MARGARET LARKINS and JOSIAH EVANS: JOHN, George, Josiah, Tabitha, Comfort, Arabella & Margaret."
JOHN EVANS, along with his brothers George & Josiah, migrated to Wayne County, Mississippi Territory by 1810 and John died there in 1842. His daughter MARGARET (my GGG Grandmother) married CLINCH GRAY September 26, 1811 and died on April 22, 1859.
Larkin Evans (b. 1808 - 1809, SC) accompanied the Evans family to Miss., but his relationship to them is undocumented.
