I wanted to give you this information since the web is riddled with errors and since thepeerage.com has reliable documentation.
I have visited several different websites on our ancestors, too and many of them get their information from the LDS, which isn't a relibale source of information and I am no genealogist, but I like to help people out with their pedigrees, so they get correct information because I, myself, have made a plethora of mistakes due to cited documentation that was later incorrect after closer examination.
As I've said elsewhere, I'm no genealogist. The information on this site mostly comes from the book South Carolinians in The Revolution by Sara Sullivan Ervin, and it has been remarkably correct. I make no representations either way, but I'm willing to include any reasonable corrections or information that tends to support or refute anything on this genealogy section of JohnDilbeck.com.
