About Pvt (CSA) Robert Thomas B. Abrams


  • 1812
  • 1815 (per 1880 census)
  • 1821


  • Owned 4 slaves according to Williamsburg County, SC 1850 slave schedule
  • Owned 7 slaves according to Williamsburg County, SC 1860 slave schedule

I don't think Robert T B Abrams is son of Thomas B Abrams, because RTB is not mentioned in the will of TB as a child. Brothers?

Possibly son of Thomas B(randon) Abrams and Isabella McDaniel Abrams. (T. B. = Robert T. B. Abrams?) Listed on 1810 census at B Thomas Abraham, 1820 census as B Thomas Abrahams.

On 1850 census for non-person schedule, there is a Thomas B Abrams listed on same page as two William Haseldens. Could these be the neighboring parents of RTB and Harriet Haselden?
