    All I have is a name and an area right now. Name: Vanderbilt Nelson Area: City of Georgetown, SC or around that general area. He would have been born circa 1930 - 1940

    Hello BlackMantle,
    I hope you get this message. My family, the Nelson's are from within this area of Georgetown, SC. The Vanderbilts (Dr. Emerson) purchased this property in the early 1900's and allowed us to stay there as sharecroppers. My grandfather, Rainey Nelson, Sr. was 93 years old when he passed in Sep. 2008. His entire life was spent on this plantation working for the Vanderbilts until he retired and is buried there with the rest of our earlier descendants. It would be a pleasure to speak with you on this subject. Please feel free to contact me at
