Repost from Blogger~ Classic with a Pop: An Unexpected Encounter

While researching my family name origin today, I came across this lovely post on Blogger.

Thank you to Casey Ferri @  http://classicwithapop.blogspot.com for this post about a beautiful old church in Sumter, SC area The Brick Church Salem Black River Church.  Judge McFadden may not be a relative but some of my ancestors may have been “attendees” at this church as slaves of some of the members.  This area is where my ancestor came to when he left the Charleston area as a child following the Confederate army.  There are lots of missing pieces for my family and we gather them as we can.

Thanks again Casey for this lovely article.  You can read the article here:  Classic with a Pop: An Unexpected Encounter
