Here are two suggestions

1.  Random of Acts of Kindness is a list of volunteers who

2.  The South Carolina Archives will do a search of their
records and provide you with locations of findings and an
estimate for copies.  Their web site is:
You can forward your request to:  [email protected]
Include:  Name you are researching, county, birth and death dates.
You must also include your postal address as they respond in
writing with results and estimate.

Best of luck, Syndi
