EThomas Hames wrote his will dated 5 Oct 1813 Union Co SC. He mentions wife Susanna and a son Garaway Hames (land held by Pleasant Smeed?), and eight daughters Nancy, Molly, Rebecca, Sally, Suckey, Cynthia, Millisa and Patsey Hames. Executors were his two brothers Charles Hames and Edmund Hames. Witnesses were Mark Hames, Israel Fowler, and Jesse Mabry, and the will was proven 8 May 1816.
In the 1810 Union SC census, Mark Hames, Charles Hames, Hannah Hames, William Hames, Thomas Hames, Edmond Hames, John Hames and some connecting surnames were living near one another.
If anybody has information on this line, please let me know.
I'm trying to determine the last name of Melissa born c1796, wife of Samuel J. Glass born c1793 in Union Co SC. They married c1818 (in the 1820 census with one young son). Samuel Glass and wife were living in the same location in Union Co SC as the Hames families were in 1810. Samuel was a son of of Mary Adams Glass dec'd 1828 and (I think) Robert Glass dec'd 1813 Union Co SC. Samuel's brother Thomas Glass was also there in 1820 and 1830 (married Jane Huckaby).
