Bethea Genealogy Project

Larry Owen along with the help of others is trying to put together a history of all the descendants of John “English John” Bethea.  Any proceeds generated by the final product would benefit the “Dothan Community Church/Cemetery” in Latta, SC.

Larry has started with the information contained in “Kinfolks Vol. III” by W.C. Harllee.  Unfortunately, this was written in 1934 and doesn't contain up to date information.  We need your family information from 1930 to 2010.

We need help from all Bethea descendants even though your last name may no longer be Bethea. 


How can you help?


1. Download a family group sheet - fill it out and send it to Larry.

2. Help with research on your Bethea line.

As a reward those who send in information will receive an ancestor chart, from Larry,  going from your newest family member back to John "English John" Bethea.
