My grandparents separted in 1925 and my grandfather moved to Philadelphia and my grandmother moved to Tampa, FL. When the family lived in S. C. my mother's name was Lizzie Bessie Belin, but when they relocated to Tampa in 1925, she became Elizabeth Belin. She met my father, Peter A. James in 1940 and they married in 1942. Henry Belin has one sister alive, Lillie (Aunt Cora) Chattine. She lives in Heminway, S.C. His oldest living sister, Eva (Aunt "T") Belin, wife of W. F. Belin died in Plainsfield, N.

Hello. I have tried to contact you and your wife a good long time ago, and your numbers had changed. If you are reading this message, please reply. I have my nephew also seeking out information about my grandfather, my grandmother and I found my mother on the site too. We are also investigating information about my sister's father, Walter F. Hopson. I cannot find my father, Fred Bailey who lived in Philadelphia on either Westminster street, or Frazier or Frasier street. I have had no luck yet. I hope you have more family infomation to tell us about. I found out that my grandfather, Henry Belin fathered another child who lives in Florida. We also found some information about that. We are still looking though. I suppose most of us are related to some people we have no knowledge about. Well, talk to you and your wife soon I hope. Take care.

Hello,

My name is Shyla Belin, my family was part of the Belin ownership, slaves. Are there any records that you can help me find when the Belins first purchased slaves, and possible what countries they came from, Some of my family seems that we came from the Islands first and probably originated from Africa. What also is interesting, I have a Henry Belin form South Carolina, where some of my ancestors were slaves in Georgetown County, SC. No one told me whether he was white or black, but I have a hunch there is possibly relation. The slaves that were on plantations or homes were named after the owners. I hope someone can direct me to find out any information.

Thanks again,

Shyla Belin

Hi Syla. The Belin slaver we are we are linked to during slavery originated in Georgetown, SC and moved to PeeDee (Johnsonville, SC) area to live with his uncle. From there he became a wealthy merchant and was able to purchase several Africans for enslavement.

Georgetown, Charleston and other areas of coastal South Carolina got their slaves early on from the West Indies and later from West Africa, primarily (Sierra Leonne, Gambia) and other rice planting regions. South Carolinians in the Low Country islands such of St. Helena's, Yaccamaw, etc. do in fact use a dialect that sounds a lot like English speaking West Indians. There was a lot of movement between PeeDee and Georgetown in the early years i.e., tobacco, timber, cotton moving from one place to the next. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I have a Henry Belin that was my great great great grandfather. He was from Pee Dee, Marion, S.C. Due to the fact that several of my ancestors were AME ministers and i located a story of of a James Belin (slave owner) that taught his slaves about the methodist religion. At this time we are planning a family union. Call me at 850-264-4569 cell or home 850-656-4569 home after 6 pm.
