The William Gilmore Simms Celebration will take place in Barnwell and
Bamberg counties June 8-10, celebrating the 200th anniversary of his birth.
In the mid 1800s, he was the major literary figure in the South and seen by
many to be the one of the best in the US. He was a student of history and
wrote a history of SC, biographies, poetry, and many works of historical
In addition to having presentations about his life, there will be tours of
three plantation homes, including his own, and an unveiling of his bust in a

and two continental breakfasts. If you are interested, contact Jennings
Owens at 803-259-1916 or 803-259-5430 or Nancy Foster at 803-245-1000.
I believe I have found the final resting place of my 1790 Orangeburgh Eeds/Eades' that I periodically bother this board about. The dates and places match up beyond reasonable doubt, however, the name does not. On every census but one (when they said she was Swiss) my Eades' maternal 4Ggrandmother was listed as being born in Germany. However, the name given is Jane. So my question for the board is this, is Jane a German (or Swiss) name? Could it be an Anglicized version of the German Jane? Did people of that era use an Anglicized version of a foreign name or did they use the original?
Also, she is listed as being 50 years old in 1831 on her headstone. Does anyone have an "unaccounted for" Jane who would have been born around 1780 and would have met John Eeds in Orangeburgh (he was born in about 1770)?
I would appreciate any thoughts.
Would someone please point me to an online list of all the cemeteries in the Orangeburgh area, particularly the ones in present day Cameron? I'm particularly interested in the hard to find family cemeteries and in the 1760's to early 1800's timeframe.
And, again, as always, if anyone knows anything about the Eades/Eads/Eeds/Edes who lived on both sides of the Heatley's in Orangeburgh, and next to the Kellers, Rests, Dantzlers, Hungerpealers (please forgive me for butchering that) in the 1780's and 1790's, please contact me. Also, does anyone on this list have contact with any Heatley descendants who could help me out with some questions?
I know the names of the sons that JWH Dukes and Mary Catherine Funchess had.
They were John Joseph Dukes and James Dukes. John was my grandfather. I
had very little information on his family. He only gave me his parents'
names, Hazel Dukes and Sadie Prine (Hazel's second wife was
Sallie Maree Mills). And that his grandmother was a Funchess. I cannot
find any information yet on Sadie Prine. But John was born in Charleston,
so Hazel and Sadie were living in Charleston at least by 11 November 1911
when my grandfather was born. The only problem I have is Hazel Dukes,
who is buried just down the road from me, has his birthdate listed on his
tombstone as 29 January 1886. But everyone's records on his father, JWH
Dukes, shows his death was on 23 March 1885 which is 10 months before Hazel
was born. Do you think that Hazel may have been mistaken on his birthyear
as he grew up?
I have wondered if JWH Dukes was actually the right ancestor of mine,but
everything points to him. The names my grandfather gave me (James Hazel
Dukes and mother Mary Funchess) and coming from Orangeburg. The only problem
is that 10 month gap between JWH's death and his son's birth (according to
his son's tombstone).
What do you think? Also, yes I would love any information you have on
his family. I can give you some information from Hazel Dukes to the present,

Speaking of cemeteries....
These are not my ancestors, but I'm just curious if anyone knows where William C. Moss and
Rebecca Caroline Raysor Moss are buried? Many related Raysors, Mosses, Salleys, and
Dantzlers are in Sunnyside Cemetery, including some of their descendants. Here's all I
William Crawford Moss b: 1819 in Orangeburg County, SC d: Bef. 1915 Fact 1: Captain in
Confederate Army . He married Rebecca Caroline Raysor b: February 20, 1829 in Colleton
County, South Carolina d: Aft. 1915 in South Carolina Father: Thomas M. Raysor Mother:
Hannah Stokes m: February 14, 1850 in South Carolina .
Some of William C. Moss's siblings were Mary Elizabeth Moss (m. John Jones Salley, Sr);
James Erwin Moss (m. Selena Catherine Stroman); Rebecca Ann Moss (m. William Graham);
Benjamin Hart Moss.
Are the older Moss family members buried in Allendale Co...?
Some of the descendants who have been maintaining the Dantzler-Hart
Cemetery on U. S. 15 near Wells Crossroads are seeking other
descendants of the people who are buried at Dantzler-Hart, to help plan
for the future of the cemetery. Those buried at Dantzler-Hart include
Frederick and Catherine Moorer Dantzler and many of their descendants
and Hamilton and Caroline Hart and their descendants. Other surnames
include Fraylick, Cason, Fairley, Rast, Crout, Moorer, Carson, DeHay,
Washington, Rast, Potter, Thompson, Shuler, Inabinet, Smith, VanVleet,
Hutto, Rhodes, Burnette, and Myers. If you are a descendant or have
information on how to locate some of the descendants, please let me
and I will get the information to the appropriate people. Thanks!

Thank you for your assistance. John
James Hazelwood Dukes was the last child of John Williams Hazelwood
Dukes. He was the child of JWHDukes third wife, Mary Catherine
Funchess. They were married December 4, 1876, just months after his
second wife died. They had two children that I know about, a little
girl who died at age 4, Lulie Emily. JWH Dukes died in 1885 and Mary
Catherine then married George Hughes. She's a widow on the 1830
census but living next door to her son Hazel Dukes.
I have info on her family and other information, but have been trying
to find out the sons Hazel Dukes had.
I can send you all I have on this branch of the Dukes family if you want.
I don't have your folks in my data, but then that isn't surprising, my
focus has generally been on early generations (1850 and earlier).
However, some thoughts:
-- The Funchess connection points toward the Rowesville area Dukes
-- Are you sure that isn't James Hazelwood Dukes? The Dukes family is
full of Hazelwoods, in memory of Margaret Hazelwood's family, which
was actually named Eisenhut.

Hi to everyone,
I'm new to the list, but I have been trying to research my grandfather's
family for several years. His names was John Joseph Dukes. He lived in
Berkeley and Dorchester Counties. His father, James Hazel Dukes moved to
Charleston from Orangeburg County ( I assume around 1900, as my grandfather
was born 1911). My grandfather didn't know much about his family except
that his mother's name (I think) was Sadie Prine and his grandmother was a
Funchess (he didn't say if it was his maternal or paternal grandmother).
I haven't been able to find out anything before the census of 1930 which
shows Hazel Dukes and his second wife, Sally Maree Dukes. If anyone has any
info, I really need the help!

Thank you so much for the link to the Hans Jacob Rister Family. I have
noted that Nancy Catharine Rister born 1841married James Solomon Dowd and their
son John Henry Dowd married Elizabeth L. Sturkey, the daughter of Joseph
Sturkie and Charlotte Lucas. This matches the information I have.
But other than this, I don't know of any other connection between the
Sturkeys and the Risters. That's why I am trying to find out why little Cephus
Sturkey would have been in Francis Risters' household on the 1870 census. As he
has the Sturkey surname, I assume that either his mother or his father was a
Sturkey. There were any number of Sturkey families in 1870 who could have
taken him in if he needed a home. Why Francis Rister?
If Francis Rister was a Bayles, that doesn't shed any light on the problem
either, as I know of no connection of Bayles and Sturkeys. Do you know anything
about the Bayles family? Was there a Douglas Bayles in Orangeburgh in this
