D - Andrew Dubose (Capt.), called "Sr." in many of his records and signed his
name as a "Sr." though he had no son by the name of Andrew. He used the "Sr." to
denote age, as he was just 3 or 4 years older than a first cousin of the same
name. Both lived in Darlington County, S. C., and records of both have been
confused. Capt. Andrew Dubose, son of Peter Dubose, the First, and Magdalen, his
wife, was born ca. 1742/46 and married ca. 1769 Rebecca (Rebeckah) Dubose, his
cousin and daughter of John Dubose. Rebecca Dubose was born 11-8-1752 as
recorded in "Register Book of Prince Frederick Parish, Winyah," published by the
Colonial Dames of America, page 29. Andrew Dubose died 1803 in Darlington
County, S. C., where Administration papers are recorded "with Will Annexed," in
Will Bk. 2, p. 58, recorded 7-11-1803. The Will was dated 3-13-1803. Sale of the
Estate was 9-8-1803. Among the appraisers was his cousin, Andrew Dubose Junr.,
son of Andrew Dubose who was son of the emigrant Isaac Dubose. Capt. Andrew
Dubose, son of Peter and Magdalen Dubose, served in the American Revolution in
Col. Lemuel Benton's Regiment. See records in Archives, Columbia, S. C. After
Andrew died, Rebecca Dubose went to live with her son Herbert (Harbt) Dubose in
