Hi All.....:))

I could sure use your advise...  
Is there a Free Men Colored Register for SC in 1820-1840?

 I am searching for ALEXANDER, Alfred born abt. 1811 SC.  I only know his
 mothers name as Bettie or Bessie born abt. 1796 in SC .  (is there a clue
 hear? based on dates, I should be looking into) and his family from the 1870
Census finally located in ALA 1870. (Alexandria, Calhoun Cty)

Now, here is my problem:  I have located Alfred and his  family of 19 years in
1870 ALA Census.  This is the only record I have  been able to locate.  He
does not appear in 1866 ALA Register of Colored Persons, nor appear in the ALA
1860 or 1880 Census.  This is an "interracial  marriage" and it has been
suggested that
 maybe due to marriage circumstances he did not want to be found?

 I could use some advise for SC,  Please re: any registers up to 1850.  Also,
I have not been able to locate the  marriage, as I do not know of what faith,
as he was
(would the interracial marriage had such an impact as not to be  able to
locate any records)  I am assuming Baptist, Presbytarian?  

I have searched marriage certificates for daughter LauraJane, Death,  and have
not been able to locate a birth in 1862 in Alabama. (Alexandria, Calhoun Cty)
, I have gone fwd and backward in ALA with NO luck!, Trying to get into SC.
SO ANY ASSISTANCE, ADVISE, OPINIONS are "graciously" accepted.
