  • The various records and genealogy trees present confused evidence about the place of birth, marriage and death.  It is presented variously as St James Santee Parish in Charleston County, church and parish area of the same name in Berkley County, or St James Town, which is  in Orangeburg County, South Carolina.  The RootsWeb Marriage Index says it was Santee County, South Carolina, and I cannot find any information indicating there was ever a county in the state by that name.  Santee is a River so many locales may have been called after the name of the River.

    Several transcription collections present the location as St James, Santee Parish, as though it was a town or location named St James within a Parish (town? church?) area of Santee in one county or another, but with no county name.  I cannot find anything definitive to resolve this, but am following the designation that seems most consistent and most likely from the searches I have done, from genealogies that report the location to be St James Santee Parish (church area, location) in Clarendon County, Virginia.
