There is another source used by one of his contacts placing the arrival in 1758. he says he has no reason to question his source. e-mail
His ancestor is samuel Waits Waights, son of John and Mary Waight and also the brother of John Waight Waits our ancestor. His information is from 2 sources: Book at his public library compiled by Mary Bondurant Warren listing immagrants to Charleston,Sc in 1768.
