Any help and information would be greatly appreciated as researching from
Florida is not as easy as being in the "home state" of all our  direct
ancestors.  Many times, we think we are related to 90% of old South
Carolina.  What few times we been able to do any research in SC, we've been
told, we knew about the Florida Group, but we just kinda' forgot about them
-- don't know who they are or how many of them they are!
