Bio and Links
Bio Photo The fourth daughter of Laurie Thackston Davis & Betty Miranda Robinson Davis. I was born and raised in Orangeburg, Orangeburg County, SC along with my three sisters. Maternal grandparents were Shellie Johnson Robinson, Sr. & Grace Edith Golson Robinson of Murph Mill Road, St. Matthews, Calhoun County, SC. Paternal Grandparents were Luther Edgar Davis & Margaret Elnora Rowell Davis of Norway, Orangeburg County, SC. Please visit our precious little grandbaby, Jordan, that the Lord saw fit to remain in heaven with Him and the angels. Jordan Hannah Perez

Married to Craig Hannah, mother of Miranda Hannah, stepmother of Alisha, Daniel (Bubba), Mark and David Hannah. Bubba, Mark and David were U. S. Marines and all proudly served this great nation of ours. On January 24, 2014, Alisha made me a grandmother with the arrival of Gabriel (G. J.) Perez, Jr. What a joyous occasion! In January 2015, Craig and I traveled to El Paso for G. J.'s first birthday. He's getting so big and absolutely the handsomest little boy around. I'm so glad God saw fit to let me stay on this Earth a little while longer to enjoy my grandson. In November 2015, we got back from a week and a half motorcycle visit to see G. J. and all the Texas young'uns! Yes, I said motorcycle visit to Austin, Texas! I had my doubts as to whether I could do it in two days coming back, but I did! Spending time with G. J. and the kids was wonderful early Thanksgiving and Christmas present rolled into one!

Colorectal Cancer Survivor here! In January 2011 my family's world was turned upside down by the news that I had colorectal cancer. My father died from colon cancer in 1992. He had been diagnosed at 58 so my sisters and I were aware that we would need to start colonoscopies at the age of 48. Ten years from your direct line ancestor is the norm. (My daughter will need to start colonoscopies at 35.) I was 45 when I was diagnosed due to symptoms that I noticed. I had the operation to remove the rectal cancer plus a little over a foot of my colon on March 1st and I started chemotherapy on April 13th. My chemotherapy ended on October 7, 2011 after only two small setbacks. Even though my father had chemo with his cancer, you don't realize Exactly what a person goes through Daily with all the changes to your body that chemo does. God Bless my Daddy! The further along in your chemo regime, the more the chemo attacks other body functions and muscles. As my husband put it, chemo really is just fumigating for any cancer bugs that may be roaming around in your body. At least in my case that was what was happening. Fortunately, I am blessed with an outstanding husband, children and family (my sister, Beth was there every day encouraging me and worrying about me) that were with me helping me complete my chemo journey. Now, over 4 years later, I still deal with day to day issues; however, I am here and I'm getting on with life despite my 2011 journey. In 2015, I'm finally at a point that I feel pretty good which is a blessing in itself. My last scan was May 22, 2015 and they are now going to let me go 8 months before another scan. Small steps, but good steps in the correct direction! Please, please, get those colonoscopies when they are due at 50. They really aren't as bad as they used to be and you don't want to have to deal with the alternative....take it from someone who has been there!

God Bless Each And Every One Of You! ~Laurie~

RE: Redmonds
John had a son named Peter. Peter had a son named Alen. Alen had a son named Darling. Darling had a son named Tyrone. Tyrone had a daughter named Doris. Doris had a daughter named - ME! lol
After Alen's wife died in Swansea, he moved to Ward, SC in Saluda County and took his kids with him. This is the branch I come from. I have found no reason for his leaving Swansea, but he is buried at Spann United Methodist Church in Ward, SC. My great grandparents, grandparents and parents are buried at Travis Park Cemetery in Saluda.

Redmond family
Hey! First of all, congrats on being a cancer survivor!! I have noticed you have left a lot of memorials on pages of my Redman/Redmon/Redmond family members. Are you related to them and if so, how? I would love to make a Redmond connection to the Swansea/Orangeburg area.

Starting Golson DNA validation project
Hi Laurie,
Barbara Goodson and I are starting a Golson DNA validation project. We believe the Maj Lewis Golson is not a descendant of Anthony Gholson base on the single Y-DNA result that has come in so far.

We have a couple of male Golson descendants do a Y-DNA test (awaiting results) and several folks doing the atDNA at ancestry then transfering to FTDNA and GEDMatch to validate descendancy from Lewis Golson and Elizabeth Stehley.
All the current participants are the descendants of Sgt John Lewis Golson and Elizabeth Miller.
We are looking for any descendants of Lewis and Elizabeth's other known children, John Casper Golson, Mary Golson, and Miss Golson who married Mr. Robinson who would be willing to participate. Especially looking for male descendants.

Also, what document(s) do you have that support Lewis having a first name of John? Would love to have them.

I can best be reached at

Jacob Rhett Riley
Hi, Laurie, and thank you for all the fine research you have done! My first cousin once removed (related to me on her maternal line) has sent me a lot of info about her father's family. Her grandfather was Jacob Rhett Riley and her father was Jacob's 11th child, Richmond Hobson Riley, 1898-1983. Richmond (who always went by Hobson) moved away and spent most of his adult life in West Palm Beach, Florida. He died and is buried there.
He is not listed in the grave information for either Jacob Rhett Riley or Mary "Mollie" Zeigler Riley. How difficult would it be to correct this? Many thanks in advance/Joan Mustard
