The brothers, John, Edward, and Ezekial SELF, as children, arrive Chester County SC in late 1780's. The 1790 census shows no father in Chester for them. By 1793
& 1795 John and Edward acquire property and begin families. In 1800
census, only Edward Self appears with his family. John Self and Family
and brother Ezekial, now 20 years old, don't show. Only possibility we
come up with is that father Self didn't make it to Chester, that a widowed
mother Self has remarried, and thats where the boys are in Chester County.
What Family? Anyone have some extras in their family census that you can't
account for? John and Edward Self left Chester in 1805, however we never
found record of them selling their land - this not selling had to create
a legal nightmare for someone, but not found in records. The SELF, ATTERBERRY,
COTTRELL, JAGGER, and other families removed to Hart/Barren counties Kentucky. The Self family was also associated w/ O'NEAL, PUGH, JENNINGS (GINNINGS), EMBRY, ESTES, and many families prior of Lunenburg Co. VA.
Will exchange with anyone, anything, to do with the SELF Family.
