Am anxious to see the results of your study. I just completed compiling
the 1766 Religious Census of Ahoghill Parish, County Antrim, Ireland. I
see a lot of the surnames that people have mentioned on that list.
Hopefully the list will be posted soon on the Antrim page of the
Here are my answers:
1) I visited your site 3 times, and I just found it last week.
2) County Antrim is where my Abrams and Tedford ancestors came from.
3) Don't know yet what part of Scotland their forefathers were from.
4) d. Am mainly interested in the period 1750 to 1772. The years of
immigration to South Carolina were from 1770 to 1772.
5) Seceder Rev. John Renwick b. 1735 in Dervock, County Antrim
established the first Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Newberry
Co., SC. James Abrams/Abram b. 1745, Mary Tedford/Telford Abrams b.
1748 were members of his church in SC. It is said that he was licensed
to preach in 1766 and ordained in the parish of Ahoghill although his
name is not on the 1766 Religious Census of that parish, nor is James
Abram or any Tedfords.
6) The names I am most interested in are Abram (There was a John Abram
on 1766 Religious Census of Ahoghill), Tedford, Renwick, Falls and
Carnahan. David Carnahan, one of my wife's ancestors was born in County
Antrim in 1770 and died in Montour Co., PA in 1841. John Falls, one of
my ancestors was born in Ireland or Scotland in 1710. He came to
Chester Co., PA mid 1700's then to Lincoln Co., NC.
Good Luck with your survey.
