John Dubose (RS), c. 1700-1788, SC

My paternal 7th great-grandfather, John Dubose, son of French immigrant Isaac Dubose (DuBosc) and Suzanne Couillandeau, was born c. 1700 in Craven County, South Carolina and died c. 1788 in South Carolina.  He married first Susannah Lemonier c. 1725, daughter of James Lemonier.  They had one daughter- Susannah Elizabeth Dubose, born c 1728.  She later married Robert Lewis.  (Registry book of Prince Frederick Parish, Winyah, pg 55).  

After the death of his first wife, John Dubose married second Mary Whilden c. 1730.  She was born c. 1710, the daughter of John and Mary Whilden.  John and Mary Dubose owned land in Berkeley County, South Carolina which they sold in 1744.  They later moved to the Lynches Creek area in the Darlington District where John had received land grants by 1750.  As an old man, John Dubose was one of eight Duboses in Captain Elias Dubose's Company under the command of General Francis Marion in the Revolutionary War.
