Anyone have any info on Francis Marions brothers and sisters as to where they--or their descendents--moved to and lived? Curious as to any connections to Penn or Ohio. Thanks.

I assume you are refering to the Swamp Fox. According to family tradition, Elizabeth Marion was a niece of Francis Marion and married Samuel Merritt in New York or New Jersey. I have never been able to verify this. I have read that many Marion records were burned in a court house fire in SC.According to a copy of an old letter she was in the New York-New Jersey area during the Rev. War. Her daughter married William Knapp and moved to Ohio.

I have some information on him. I have family connection to him, and would love more. I do konw that he married Mary Videau. I do know he is the last in line of 6. (5 sons and 1 daughter) He and Mary did not have any children so they adopted a child of a relative to carry on the name of Francis Marion. This son married and only had daughters and no sons. I have a bit more, and if you are interested, please let me know. You can communicate via email to me at shanp@skymidwest.com
Thank you!
