I'm looking for any information on Otis Eugene LaGrone (Gene) born December 18, 1917, in Oklahoma. Brother Raymond. Wife, Ericka, Children Gary (deceased), Larry, Carey, and Loralei, and Kristie. Am trying to do a family tree, but as an illegitamet(sp?) daughter, I don't have much (anything!) to go on. Any info would be appreciated.
see Kinard and LaGrone references, below.

> Indents were issued by the State of South Carolina beginning in July
1779, when the State was without money to pay men for Service or Supplies.
They were a form of scrip. Until Columbia became the capital in 1788, they
had to be gotten in Charleston. As the trip to Charleston took several
days, one man going from the community often transacted business for his
neighbors, as well as himself. Hence, we find the above list.
