When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

Feb. 24- The 242nd anniversary of the birth of my Paternal 5th Great Grandmother, Mary Strother Dargan (1772-1822). Mary was the daughter of William Strother and Catherine Dargan. She may have been born in Sumter District, SC.

  1. Hello, I see your blog through the Facebook Sumter Cty Group page. I find William Strother / Catherine Dargan in my notes, my James Gerald married Mildred Taliaferro (sp?) after your William Strother. I have nothing more about your William, and wonder what you know about Mildred? the son she had with James Gerald, Rev. John Gabriel Gerald, was my GGGGGrandfather. I have info on the Geralds and Griffins. I enjoy reading your blogs. Joanne Cooper

  2. Joanne,
    Thank you so much for commenting! I don't have much on Mildred but perhaps together we can find out more! Please email me at CheriPass@aol.com.
