THat Thomas Gaines (md. Margaret) with children listed is correct by the will of Newberry SC Will Book C, page 147 dtd. 7 July 1800 and noted Delilah was the widow of Richard Strother with Strother children and it did not single out Thomas Boykin Gaines as a son. I saw the will on microfilm and just put down particulars. Later returns show that Edward Gaines was the guardian of Mary Pendleton Gaines. Delilah's father lived in Camden, which became Fairfield Dist., SC before he moved to the Pike/Wilkinson Co., Ms. area about 1811/12. Delilah was deceased.

Please go to the postings of mine regarding Elia, Jesse and Delilah Fort......these would be on the Surnames board, Fort Family Genealogy, number 170 and 269 in order of posts. This will tell you more regarding Delilah Fort Strother Gaines without repeating myself...and risking a mistake.
