Esther Dubose - Robert D. Brooke

After "lurking" for some time, this is my first attempt to learn more
about my GGGGG Grandmother, Esther Dubose, who was married to my GGGGG
Grandfather, Andrew Rembert (1717-1775).

My Remberts were associated with St. James Parish, Santee, Craven
County, SC. Esther is the only Dubose I presently know of  from whom I
am directly descended, but there was a *lot* of intermarriage between
the Remberts and the DuBoses, and the following, I feel confidant,
will provide a clue to Esther's close family/parents. Some of the
I'm somewhat sure, are relatives of Esther.

Daniel Dubose, married to Anne Royer, daughter of Pierre Royer and
Anne Rembert, (b about 1686). Anne is the daughter of Andre Rembert,

Daniel Dubose, married to Anne Rembert, daughter of Pierre Rembert (b
about 1691) and Jeanne ?. Pierre Rembert is the son of Andre Rembert,

(Since Pierre Rembert and Anne Rembert were siblings, Anne Royer and
Anne Rembert were first cousins. Was the Daniel Dubose they each
married the same person, or were there two Daniel Duboses?)

Isaac Dubose (1693-1742) married Madelaine Rembert (About
( Madelaine Rembert was another daughter of Andre Rembert, so she was
the aunt of both Anne Rembert and Anne Royer, and therefore the
aunt-in-law to Daniel/Daniel) I believe it very plausible that her
husband Isaac Dubose was some relation to Daniel/Daniel).

Isaac and Madelaine had two children that I know of. Isaac Dubose, Jr.
and Madelaine Dubose. Madelaine Dubose married a Peter Dubose. There
were probably other children of Isaac and Madelaine besides their
namesakes, and probably Isaac Jr and Madelaine Jr had children.

Elias Dubose, Captain (b est1732-1752)

Ezekial Dubose (1772-1819), Elias' son. Ezekial Dubose married Mary
Rembert (1781-1817). Mary was the great grandniece of both Pierre
Rembert and Anne Rembert, because her GG Grandfather was Andre
Rembert, Pierre and Anne's father.

Well, that's all I know about these Dubose people, and I'm sure you
are all saying "Thank God", because it certainly is confusing. It took
me over an hour to type this message, trying to figure out myself the
relationships of all these Duboses and Remberts who married kin.

I'm hopeful one of you recognizes a Dubose name or two, and might
give me a clue as to where Esther fits in. 

Thank you in advance.
