Anyone working on the line of Thomas B. Rall/Rawl/Rawls? Born 23 JUN 1762, Orangeburgh Co., Death 13 MAR 1849, Lexington Co. First marriage to Elizabeth OXNER/OAKER. Their children married into the BUSBY, SHULER and HARMON/HARMAN families.
A relative wants me to meet her at the SC Archives to do some family research next week. How do I know where to begin when I get there? I am researching Orangeburg and Bamberg County Radcliffes, Bonnettes, Mounts, Holmans, and Tylers. thanks1Susan Truett Hovermale
Hello fellow OGSGS members and all who attended Oktoberfest.
We have a question that came up that some of you may be able to help with. About two or three years ago someone brought a picture to Oktoberfest titled "Edisto Rifles Reunion" of Civil War veterans dated about 1900. The picture was a group of old men with beards posing in front of a tent like structure . Some wanted a copy of the picture, as ancestors were in it. Also we would love to have a copy for our archives. Does anyone out there know who brought this picture to Oktoberfest?
That is a good picture of a Brush Arbor meeting, although the date on the
picture supplied should be checked and verified as photography was not
invented until 1826-27 and was not in America until the 1830s, and not
widespread until the 1840s and 1850s.

Has anyone seen a pictorial rendering of brush arbor church gathering places? We have found references to a family ancestor who served as a circuit-riding preacher. In teaching young cousins about this part of our history, it occurs to me that a pictorial representation would assist in the lesson. Please direct me to any source of which you are aware.
