Chesterfield County SC~Estate Folder #450 – John H. Perkins

Each week, on Sunday, I will select an Estate Folders from the Estate files of Chesterfield County and discuss its contents. No known estates exist for the period before the Civil War. They were destroyed with the burning of the Courthouse. There are a few “Equity Records” in the State Archives. Do not overlook this valuable resource if you are looking for ancestors in Chesterfield County, South Carolina.

Today we will be looking at the following Estate folder:

It’s Family Time~Catharine Dry and John Laton, Sr. Family

Catharine Dry was born in 1791 a daughter of Johann Martin Dry and Catherine Keppel.

On 10 June 1824, at the age of 33, Catherine married John Laton, Sr. in Montgomery County, North Carolina.
