I am looking for any information regarding Needham Rye b. 1803, and his wife Mary b. 1815, who lived in Marlboro County, South Carolina in the early 1800's). He could possibly be the son of John Rye. He also may have been born in North Carolina. His children (all born in SC) were: Emily R. Rye b. 1847, Henry Francis Rye b. 1845, Franklin Rye b. 1843, Sara F. Rye b. 1841, John Rye b. 1839, William Rye b. 1837, Minetta Rye b. 1835, Delana Rye b. 1833, Eliza A. Rye b. 1829, and Kadizah Rye b. 1849. Also living in the household were Harriet Phillips and John Griffin.
Other Ryes living in the area were: Absolom, Solomon, Dunn, Joseph and John. I do not know the relationship but assume they were all part of the same family. Any information on the above would be greatly appreciated.
