I am researching John Timmons born 1789 in Sc and Temperance Stafford born 1803 in SC. Son Isaac Timmons born 1822 in SC. Marriage about 1820-1821.
Thus far I have not seen a Robert Timmons in Spartanburg or Greenville but there are Timmons' on the 1790, 1800, 1830 and 1840 census records. I believe these records only list head of households and children would not be listed by name.
I have also ran on to Timmons' in Marion and Florence counties but can't remember if I saw a Robert Timmons.
I have a CD with 1870 head of households which has the following Robert Timmons' listed:
Robert Timmons, age 84, born in Va, 1870 living in TN.
Robert Timmons, age 38, born in GA, 1870 living in GA.(Black)
Robert Timmons, age 37, born in DE, 1870 living in IA.
Robert Timmons, age 60, born in OH, 1870 living in IL.
