Yes! This is the family I am looking for info on. Sarah Elizabeth's maiden name was Hunt. She was born in TN., not SC. Would like to know their death dates and places of burial. Would like to know anything you can share with me on John, i,e, parents, etc. And what became of their children?

Thank You So Much,
Mary
P.S. Sarah's mother was Darcus Giles, her father was Henry Hunt.

Generation No. 2

2. HENRY B SOUTH was born 1829 in Franklin Co, TN. He married SARAH E SEXTON Sep 25, 1856 in Franklin Co, TN. She was born 1836.

I believe the parents of John South were William South b. abt 1768 (no other info) This John South was on the Census: 1820, Franklin co Tenn age 50-60
This William South has 4 sons (probably more children): Thomas, John, Joseph, & Benjamin Guy South.
Benjamin Guy South b. abt 1810 married Eliza Manerva Sherrill and had 9 children born in TN.

Thank you very much David. This is so great! Found some of them on the census in Franklin Co. Benj. F. was in Nashville for a while, census says he was an attorney. On the 1870 census Leonidas's wife is listed as Caroline born abt. 1842 in TN., then on the 1880 census his wife is listed as Frances born abt. 1846 in TN. Did he have 2 wives or was her name Frances Caroline or vice versa?
Would you happen to know where any of these folks are buried? Do you know what became of Adaline and Archibald, John and Sarah's other 2 children?

Thanks again, so so much for the info. I really do appreciate it!
