We are attempting to identify the parents and siblings of Columbus Gaskins
born in SC within a few years of 1880. His full name is Columbus Benjamin
Gaskins. He left SC as a young adult and moved to Alabama and later to
Florida. It is possible that he lived in Chester or Chesterfield counties.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Richard H. Rials
