Lamkin and Lamar wills Edgefield County SC

Posted: 1374440221000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Lamkin, Lamar, Siebles, Statham
Here are three will abstracts that were submitted to USGW Archives for Edgefield over a year ago. Inexplicably and despite several follow-ups with the coordinator for that county, they still are not up so I'm putting them here. North Carolina USGW is so awesome about getting submissions online and available to others, I thought everyone did such a great job but I guess not.

[If the "preview" on this post is any guide, this is going to be a garbled mess, but at least the information will be out there]
