I am the granddaughter of Edwin Jacob Jenkins (1866-1933) and Helen Rollison (Rawlinson, Rolinson) (1869-1920). They were both born in Newberry, SC, and later moved to Elloree, SC. I have been told that my grandfather had a store in Elloree, SC at some time, but cannot find evidence of this.
I am particularly interested in information concerning my
Ggrandmother, Helen Pope Rollison (often called Popie.)(1843-1870). My Ggrandfather was James C. Rollison(1829-1870) A complete brick wall has hindered me from finding any information about James Rollison. He and my Ggrandmother lived in Newberry, SC.
I was hoping that someone may have some information on any othese people who are so important to me.
Thanks in advance,
