I am proofreading the Snider Family file and need confirmation of a fact
that is listed in the narrative. It says that Jacob Snider, his daughter
Barbara and his son William were all born in Eschelbach, Baden, Germany.
Does anyone have documentation for this information? I have never heard
this before and neither have some of the other Snider researchers. Would
appreciate some help on this. Thanks......Shirley

If anybody can document the marriage of Elizabeth Rawl to Rev. Daniel Dreher,s/o
John Dreher and Mary Catherine Lever Dreher. He married second Rebecca
Shuler ca 1828/29. Several researchers have this information but I haven't
found the documentation. I would appreciate any assistance with this.
At one point an Andrew HOLMAN (Hallman?), orphaned somehow, lived with
Rosannah Kelly Taylor (b. SC 1831) and her husband, Henry Taylor (b. 1787
SC). Andrew was born in SC. He eventually followed Rosannah's family down
into Alabama, and he became a state senator. How was he kin to Rosannah or
Henry? Do you know? Rosannah Kelly was the daughter of Samuel KELLY who was
the son of Andrew KELLY (Rev. War) who was the son of immigrant Jacob KELLY.
They lived in the Orangeburg area.
Yes it was spelled Holman/Hallman ,as different families had separate
spellings.The original spelling was Heilman,then it went to Holman,then some
started spelling it Hallman.And they were a very large family in the
Orangeburg and Lexington county areas. In fact I am doing a Hallman line now
as 3 of my Boatwright line married into the Hallman family.Which ones are you
interested in as I have the book"Hallman and Related Families in America" by
Isaac Hallman and it is pretty inclusive up to about 1965(he died then).Jerry
The following received from Peggy Diacetis <mbdiac(a)groupz.net and is being
passed along fyi
I have checked the Daniel Seigler-Zeiglers in the book and do not find
one married to Elizabeth Snider. It does contain some very good history
of the earliest family members to settle in South Carolina. Good luck in
your research. Hope you find a connection soon.
I will send my address and information to purchase the book in case you
decide to purchase it or pass it along to anyone. Margaret B. Diacetis,
115 Nicole Drive, Aiken, SC 29805-7921. Cost of the book is $55.00.
Thanks Kay. Just a chance.

Expanding on previous note to give more information on "DANIEL
Margaret Scott Jennings b. 8 Mar. 1814; m. Daniel Kittrell (c1806-1859),
a son of Phebe & Rueben Kittrell of Barnwell District, SC. Their 7
children (all born in SC) were listed in the 1850 census: Martha, age
18; James, age 15; Mary, age 13; Washington, age 10; Jefferson, age 7;
John, age 5; Andrew, age 1. This "Daniel Kittrell" owned land in
Orangeburg and Barnwell Districts, SC. He was called "Daniel Kittrell,
Senior" in some court records not to distinguish him from a son but to
distinguish him from DANIEL KITTRELL (1814-1867) b. LA, who also appears
in the court records of Barnwell District, SC at an early date. The
latter was associated with Decana Dowling, Osborn Lain, Lewis M. Rice,
William & James Nimmons, and Charles Ray. His wife was Martha A.
Daniel Kittrell is buried in Salem Methodist Church Cemetery located
about 2 1/2 miles southeast of Hilda, Bamberg County, SC, and about 1/2
mile from the Barnwell County, SC line on State Highway S-6-85. I don't
know which Daniel Kittrell this is, but the adjacent graves probably
give good clues.
I have reason to believe that my great-great grandfather Harvey KELLEY of
Cumberland County, TN started his life as Elisha DORSEY, son of William H.
DORSEY. A large group of DORSEYs, including William and his father John H.
DORSEY were in Macon County, NC in 1830. By 1834, they had moved to the
Walhalla area in what was then the Old Pendleton District and is now Oconee
County. William died in 1848, John in 1852. In the settlement of John's
estate, the following children are listed in addition to William (who was
dead, of course): Elisha (moved to NE Georgia), John , Jr., Catharine (had
married Hardin PERKINS and left the state), Rachel (had married Henry
MEDFORD and left the state), Elizabeth SHIELDS (deceased), David (also moved
to NE Georgia), Mary (known as Polly) and Peter. This family is represented
in the Old Pendleton Database but only the descendants of Peter are
presented in any detail.
In the 1860 census, E. H. Dorsey is living with his wife, Louisa and son
John A. close to members of this Dorsey family. By 1870 all traces of E. H.
who is Elisha H. Dorsey, son of William H. Dorsey is lost. Coincidentally,
in 1870, my great-great grandfather Harvey Kelley shows up in TN with a wife
Louisa and son John A (with a couple of other kids too). Word is that
Harvey had some sort of Civil War related problem that precipitated the name
change and move to TN.
William Dorsey had at least one other son named Anderson Dorsey who I think
married Elizabeth Jane KING in Pickens in 1858. Harvey Kelley (who may have
been Elisha Kelley) was married to Louisa J. BOUKNIGHT from Lexington
County. The Bouknight family is well documented in the Orangeburgh
District. Unfortunately, more than one source confuses the marriage of
Louisa J. Bouknight with that of her niece L. J. Bouknight in Upshur County,
I would be interested to hear from any descendants of the siblings of
William Dorsey or any of the other people named above. I am looking for a
way to verify this Dorsey/Kelley link. Of course, high on my wish list is a
correct marriage record for Louisa J. Bouknight.
Just curious. Do you a William Robinson, was a Lieutenant in 1944, married
in Atlanta about Sept - Oct 1944 ?

John Dreher is my third great grandfather. He was married three times:
B. MARCH 20, 1765
D. MAY 23, 1847 SOURCE: CEMETERY RECORD & WILL
MARRIED 1ST CA 1787
ANN "NANCY" HOLLINSHED/HILLINSHED (THERE IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY SHE
WAS A FRIDAY ACCORDING TO SOME RESEARCHERS)
D. NOV. 7, 1792 buried in Old Zion Lutheran Church Cemetery(Lex.
Cty) several sources for this.
1. GODFREY DREHER
B. DEC. 4, 1789
D. JULY 28, 1875 CEM. RECORDS, FAMILY, 1850 CENSUS(LEX)
2. MARY MAGDALENE "POLLY" DREHER(GABLE, KAIGLER) BURIED NEXT TO ANN
MARRIED 2ND ELIZABETH PARLER HOLMAN/HALLMAN CA. 1793
1. ANNA "NANCY" DREHER (BATES, SHULER)
B. OCTOBER 21, 1794
MARRIED 3RD:JULY 31, 1797
MARY CATHERINE(????) LEVER I noticed you had Wingard. I have been
searching for her maiden name could it have been Wingard. It would make
sense as my great-grandfather was JACOB WINGARD DREHER
B. MARCH 15, 1768
D. MAY 8, 1850
B. ST. MICHAEL'S LUTHERAN CHURCH CEMETERY WITH JOHN AND OTHERS
They had six that I have data for. I descend through Daniel.
Please let me know if you have some documentation on the Wingard. Ihave
some data that says she was the daughter of George Henry Lever and Anna
Marie Cromer. If this is true then she was not a Mrs. Mary C. Lever when
they were married as recorded in "Early NC & SC Marriage Records."
I am trying to proof the Dreher family so any information you might have
would be greatly appreciated.
The one I have most info on(and that is very little) is the family of John
Morgan Bryant and his brother Isaac Bryant,Jr.. They both married into the
Fulmer/Folmar/Volmar line. I sure some of their relations went to Al along
with their cousins the Roberts,Caughmans,Gunters,Halls and Hallmans.My
gr-grandmother was Frances Arzilla Bryant(married William Pinckney Brown)Jerry
Thanks, Will, for the information about the Salley Book. I am researching
KELLY (KHELE) ancestors in that area and would be interested in knowing what
info, if any, is contained in the book about them.
I'm proofreading the Fogle family for the OSGS website. While going through
the records for the St. Matthews Lutheran Church, I have come across a stray
Fogle that I need help placing.
1. A marriage entry dated July 2, 1807 for Rachel Fogle to George Ziegler.
2. Various baptism records for the children of George and Rachel Ziegler.
John Ziegler bap. Apr 17, 1808
Carolina Ziegler bap Sep 18, 1809
George Alexander Ziegler bap Feb 24, 1811
Jacob Ziegler bap Nov 12, 1812
a possible child is Josiah Ziegler bap June 16, 1807
If anyone knows what Fogle line Rachel follows please let me know.
