I came across this while researching the Fant family in SC. Ropers had some connection to Fant through Jenkins,Gibbs families and prior location in Stafford County VA. It had been documented before atLowcountryAfricana.com but I wanted to add it to my Blog.
Daughters of George Fant, Lucinda Fant Schooler and husband Henry,Maria Fant West and William, Athelia Fant West and John are in Orangeburg SC before 1790 just prior, probably, to their brothers arriving there in 1793.
