I am researching the name WOODRUFF of SOUTH CAROLINA. They came from JOHN WOODRUFF, originally for Fordwich/Northgate, ENGLAND. He came to America in the 1600's with his stepfather ? Gosmer and his mother. They lived in NY, then went to NJ, NC. His descendants ended up in Woodruff, Spartenburg County, South Carolina. I am a descendent of Samuel H. and Nancy PILGRIM WOODRUFF. Their son Gideon and Philadelphia BOBO WOODRUFF are my ggr-grandparents. They moved to MISSISSIPPI in the 1830's. He was a Baptist minister and they lived in and around Hohenlinden, Mississippi, until their death. Their son, Amos Parker WOODRUFF and Francis D. HASTINGS are my gr-grandparents.
I am interested in any information on the following surnames in the following states: BOBO-SC,MS,TX HASTINGS-SC,MS,TX MCCOY-MS,TX PILGRIM-SC,MS ADKINS-TX WRIGHT-TX WOODRUFF-ENG,NY,NJ,NC,SC,MS,TX,OK, and JAPAN.

I am trying to locate an uncle-SPURGEON LOUIS "BOZO" WOODRUFF. He was in the MERCHANT MARINES and in 1959 traaveled to JAPAN to live with his wife MASAKO JIMMAI/JIMNAI. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
