Hi Sherron,
I just read your message regarding info on SC plantations. I'm also looking for information. Surely, there must be something on the Internet! I checked into the webspace that Alene told about, but I could not find anything on Plantations, even though it was titled Plantations Colonies,unless I overlooked something. ANyway I'm looking for plantations in the Estill, Tillman area of SC. One of the plantations was named "MEXICO" which was located I believe just north of Estill, or Lawtonville. The other is "PECAN HILL PLANTATION". (It's believed that my greatgrandfather might be buried at the cemetery there. If you know where I might find any information,I'd certainly appreciate it. Debbie

Surnames: PEARSON, TAYLOR
If you should happen to come across that information, I would appreciate having a copy. I am looking for any records about my grandmother who lived in or around Darlington or Florence, SC. Her name was Anna Pearson and she married a Warner Taylor from Virginia. I am looking for any black Pearsons and/or Taylors.

I am also on that same search in SC for records or any information about the Pearsons and/or Taylors in or around Florence, Darlington and Woodruff, SC. If I come across anything useful I will let you know. I am in touch with someone who was able to put his geneology together back to slavery - 1700 or so. Keep in touch.

Surnames: HAMMOND, BARNWELL, AIKEN
I have compiled a great deal of information regarding the ante-bellum plantations of JAMES HENRY HAMMOND of RedCliffe, SC. Over the course of thirty-three years, Hammond owned nearly one thousand human beings. By the time of his death in 1864, Hammond's vast land holdings were home to four slave communities, totaling more than three hundred men, women and children. The plantations, known as SILVER BLUFF, CATHWOOD, and COWDEN, encompassed lands along the Savannah River in Barnwell District, stretching from present day Jackson, SC to Hammond's residence called RedCliffe in Beech Island, SC. For over three decades, beginning in 1831, Hammond recorded the births and deaths of his slaves in his plantation journal with methodical precision. Although Hammond most certainly did not intend for these records to be bequeathed to the descendants of his slaves, they must be regarded as a rare gift nonetheless. Through Hammond's records I was able to trace my husband's family back to 1763. In the process I was able to document 42 surnames belonging to persons enslaved by Hammond from 1831-1865. From Hammond's records I have compiled over 50 family group sheets. Since a great majority of Hammond's former slave community continued to live and work on or near the lands they had been enslaved upon, it wasn't difficult to trace these families after emancipation. Additional surnames were discovered in the 1870 and 1880 census records for BARNWELL and AIKEN counties for families that Hammond had never identified with a surname during slavery. The complete collection of James Henry Hammond Papers from the South Caroliniana Library, University of South Carolina, Columbia, through the year 1865 is available on microfilm in a series entitled RECORDS OF ANTEBELLUM SOUTHERN PLANTATIONS FROM THE REVOLUTION THROUGH THE CIVIL WAR. The Hammond collection is found in Series A. A paper guide and index for the collection offers a brief description of the contents of each of the 15 reels. The vast majority of slave genealogy was found on reel numbers 1, 2, 13, 14 15. Other South Carolina plantations are included in the series. Check with your local library or university for availability. The University of Minnesota has the complete collection, as well as other universities across the country. If you are interested in any of the information I have compiled, please feel free to contact me. I would love to reunite each of these names with someone longing to find them. Each of them represents a voice and a life. Each of them has become like family. Continued good luck to you on your journies. You can reach me at elmoreroundtree@aol.com
