Thanks so much for the help. I was getting confused. I do have one
documented piece of information on this family, for Elizabeth Poyas'
book _Our Forefathers: Their Homes and their Churches._:
"Mr. Charles B. Ladson, (after whom one of the South Carolina railroad
stations is named;) . . . lived just without the desolated town, and
died unmarried, leaving his property to his cousin, Eliza Ladson, Mrs.
Daniel C. Webb . . . . Mr. Ladson's mother was a Miss Capers; she had
taken, as a second husband, Deacon John Rose, who sang by note, painted
in water-colors, and played upon the hand-organ-rare accomplishments in
those times." 

From the stories in the book, it seems that Poyas apparently knew Deacon
John Rose (who is my ancestor) and his family fairly well personally.
She was in her 80's when she published her book in 1860. From her
comments, the maiden name of the mother of Charles Benjamin Ladson was
Capers. What confused me is that Thomas Ladson, brother of Benjamin
Ladson, also married a Capers, Elizabeth, according to the St. Helena's
Parish Register. That is the one Ladson-Capers marriage of the right
time period for which I'd found documentation. Of course that sort of
thing has always been common, brothers marrying sisters.

In any case, the Mary Capers Ladson who married John Rose does not seem
to have been the mother of my ancestor Sarah Mary Rose (married Thomas
Davis Stall) or of her brother John Stall, since Charles Benjamin Ladson
was born *after* Sarah Mary Rose.

Thanks again!
