Had a birth location of Laurens County, South Carolina. It wasn't formed until 1785. The parent county Ninety-Six District wasn't formed until 1769 and it was the original one. Henry Box was the founder of St. Clair County, Alabama and first Judge. The dates of 1765-1835 and the full name of Henry Robert Box were from the memorial at FindAGrave.com for grandson Leroy Box.
Several other Gedcoms have the name as Henry J. Box.
A memorial at FindAGrave.com for daughter Levina Box Adams gave his dates as 1770-1845.

If you study my sources, you will see that I haven't done much research before the 1850 census. I have some material based on Bible entries, DAR applications, local history books, and wills for earlier periods but need to do a lot more work on the lines further out. Please contact me with updates and corrections.
