Subject:  [NCBLADEN-L] Barnwell, SC/Cannady

I typed info as written regarding a John Cannady in
Barnwell County, S.C.  With these connecting family
names, (sons-in-law, etc.) would you see if can find any
other info on this John Cannady, wife Whitty, daughter
Whitty (Sellars)  and his two sons, John and Edmund.

As always, thanks in advance.

James RANDALL vs. John CANNADY, et. al.
Partition.  Filed Oct. 13, 1847.
     This proceeding relates to a tract of 100 acres of land
in Barnwell District (B.D.) bought Sept. 13, 1804 by John
CANNADY, SR., from William Moseley, Sr., deed recorded
in deed book D, page 519 of B.D., which land CANNADY
owned at his death in 1822.
     EXHIBIT A:  Will of JOHN CANNADY, SR., dated Feb. 15, 1819,
probated in B.D., May 24, 1822, devising all his estate to his wife
Whitty for her lifetime and after her death to his sons,
John and Edmund CANNADY and sons-in-law, William BURKHALTER,
James BURKHALTER, John SELLERS and William BRYANT.  Execurtor:
James BURKHALTER.  All parties resident of  B.D.
     Said John SELLARS died before his father-in-law did, and
was survived by his wife Whitty (a daughter of said John
CANNADY, SR.) and four children, viz. Ann, John, James, and
Sampson Sellars, all of B.D.  Leter, on (blank date) said
Mrs. Whitty Sellars died, and thereafter said Sampson Sellars
became 21 years of age, and he and his brother James deeded
their interest in said lands to petitioner.  Petitioner alleges that
certain parties are in possession of portions of this land under
some claim unknown to him, viz. The South Carolina Canal &
Railroad Co., Mary Swartz, John Gardner, Rachel Barrs, and
the Intendent & Wardens of the town of Aiken "otherwise called
the Town of Aiken."
     The proceedings show this land laid inside the new town
of Aiken, and a plat of same is in the file showing the railroad
running through the n.e. corner of the tract, the Aiken Town
Academy standing in the northwest corner, and lots on the
northeast side of railroad being in possession of Schwartz,
Gardner and the R.R. Company.  Plat made by Wm. Burkhalter,
Dept. Surveyor, Sept. 2, 1847.  No final decree or disposition
of case is in the file.

CLAUDIA, thank you so much for sharing documents .

I am sending this thru our SELLERS group and perhaps they can Prove more of our SELLERS and perhaps we can help trace where our CANNADY'S and SELLERS connected.

Are CANNADY'S in Orangeburg Co, SC or do you have a time chart on them ?
I see you listed BLADEN CO, NC also, are they from that area? = when?

We /I have Not extracted CANNADY info, perhaps our other SELLERS have and will send INFO/DOCUMENTS to post on these families.
THANK YOU, marie, iowa

We recently learned that the old John Cannady in
Emanuel County was indeed the father of our
Daniel B. (Barrien ?) Cannady.  We were searching
in N.C. and S.C.  The Edenfields(Edinfield-Edingfield)
was from Barnwell and most of the Cannady females
married Edenfield's.  I also believe Aurin G. Horn
was connected to the family.  I am going to look
up Sellars, Burkhalter on some cd's that I have
to see if they were listed in the same area.
You never know when someone has the missing
piece of your puzzle.
Thanks for responding and keep me informed.
Dee will do lookups for you re the Sellar line.
Take care,

Hi, Claudia,

There is a line of CANNADAYs who were in southwestern VA before the
Revolution. James CANNADAY from this line fought with Gen. Nathaniel GREENE
at Guilford Courthouse in March 1781. He had a large family... perhaps some
went to SC?

CLAUDIA, thanks.
If we had some AGES =  births and deaths with these CANNADY names might help prove if Same families.
PLEASE send any ages and places you can.
WE will try and show same anywhere our SELLERS are in these areas.
BUT, without Ages, Neighbors, DON'T know if same families.

Don't think we have proven in 1800?
DO you?
Possibility is Orangeburg Co, SC, which Barnwell was made from some of this land. ?
OR another Close County? = Where are CANNADY'S in 1800?

The John Cannady, Sr. in that article the will was
probated in 1822.
My John Cannady was born about 1777-1780.
I know he was in Emanuel County, Ga. in 1814.***
The article mentioned two sons, John and Edmund.
Edmund was in Ga. also.  In the 1820 census,
Edmund was in the males over 45.  That doesn't
tell you much.  He is not listed in the 1830 but
their is a male OVER 100 living with another of
our Cannady men.  I am thinking my John
Cannady was a grandson to the John Cannady, Sr.
of Barnwell, SC.  There were Horn families in that
same area in SC and they settled in Emanuel Co.,
Ga. also.  And that William Moseley migrated to
Emanuel Co. also.

***I just realized something by reading my mail
to you before I sent it.  ..... in that will it said
they were all residents of B.D.  and that was
written in 1819, probated in 1822.  Phooey ...
but still it could be a grandson!

CLAUDIA, thanks.
What CANNADY'S were here in 1790? =

and WHERE in 1800?

WE NEED the county/state these kids married SELLERS/CANNADYS! = WHERE first or any child born?
DID we OWN land?

BARNWELL land was made from Orangeburg land =
We have some of the SELLERS extractions = NEED CANNADYS info =

PLEASE send us a copy of any EMANUEL CO, GA  info.
YOU have helped us with your documents in BARNSWELL CO, SC.

Could there be MORE Probate papers in BARNWELL CO, SC or perhaps EMANUEL CO, GA.
SOMETIMES, you have to ask for ALL/MORE probate papers.
OR the JOHN CANNADY died in 1822 BARNWELL CO, SC and his kids went to GA?
These Ages may help.

I apologize for the confusion.  If I do it again I guess I'll
be banned from lookup requests.  Please blame it on my
"halfs"-heimers and my excitement over having found
our ggg-grandfather.

I had sent an article to you from "Court of Equity Records
of Barnwell District, S.C."  compiled by Folks Huxford.
It had a will of a John Cannady, SENIOR. who died in Barnwell
District, SC in 1822.  His sons were John and Edmund.
His wife's and daughter's (given ?)  name was Whitty.
His sons-in-law were: Sellers and Burkhalter.

The John I am trying to trace was born about 1777-1785.
He could be the son of this John Cannady, Sr.
The Georgia census records shows my John Cannady
was born in S.C. - other info we have obtained suggests
the Barnwell District/Orangeburg, S.C.
A John and Edmund Cannady migrated to Ga.

Any info you can find on Cannady's in Barnwell/Orangeburg
in  South Carolina from the mid 1700's to very early 1800's
would be appreciated.

You once told me that connecting names was helpful.
>From Barnwell District, SC -  Edenfield, (Eddingfield),
Horn(e), Moore(r), Moseley.
