Descendant of Doc Childs

I enjoyed your memorial of Dr Childs. I am the oldest surviving son of George Costner and Pauline Teal Childs of Wadesboro, NC. My mother spent many years in contact with the Massachusetts' Childs who tracted the Childs family back to England.
My mother's notes indicate the reason for Dr Childs departure from Ma. was due to respiratory illness, causing him to seek a higher altitudeand climate.
The reason for moving Dr Childs from Childsville was the desire of his wife to return to a Lincolnton, N.C. and ultimately Columbia S.C. to seek a "less" harsh and demanding climate in her latter years.

General William Childs Westmoreland of Columbia, S.C. was probably the most famous recent decendant of the Childs lineage.
If you can send me appropriate contacts, I will forward our family records to enhance what is already an interesting story.
