Sorry but I didn't find any Kearce or Kierce in any of the books. Somewhere
I read that two of Andrew's brothers moved to what is now Bamberg Co. and
changed their names to Kearce/Kearse. There are a number of Kearse families
in Bamberg County. Have some Kearse friends, hence my interest in the name.
In skimming through one of the books that has Sandy Run Lutheran Church
Cemetery listed, I found:
John C. Geiger
Son of Wm & Margaret Kersh Geirger
August 24, 1801
March 10, 1870
Sandy Run Lutheran Church is in upper Calhoun County, not too far from the
Lexington County line.
