> Does anyone have any information on Eulie Mae Blewer, married to Perry
> William Browning of Elloree, S.C.
David, all I have is that Perry W. Browning is buried in Santee Cemetery
about 3 miles North of Elloree. Don't know where Eulie Mae Blewer is
buried. The following inscription is from "Sacred Dwellings in Orangeburg &
Calhoun Counties of South Carolina" compiled by Peggy Ann and Floyd Miller
Santee Cemetery - Page 57:
Perry W. Browning
Husband of E. W. Browning
Father of Norman Earl Browning
June 2, 1865
April 7, 1930
According to "Cemeteries of Families of Amelia Township and Calhoun County,
South Carolina, Vol I" compiled by Calhoun Co. Museum
Buried at Santee Baptist Church Cemetery, Elloree are Perry W. Browning, 02
June 1865 - 07 Apr. 1930; Norman Earl, s/o P.W. and E.M. Browning, b. 20
Dec. 1896 - d. 08 May 1897; and Lila May, d/o P. W. and E. M. Browning, b.
16 Apr 1898 - d. 27 July 1901. Don't know why the children weren't
included in the "Sacred Dwellings" book, unless the tombstones were
illegible when Peggy and Floyd did the copying several years ago. The
"Cemeteries of Families" copying was done in early in the 1950's. Hope
this helps some, no help with Eulie Mae, but at least it gives you two

Last summer I have found the connection between these 2 families in
Switzerland as far back as 1541, when a young boy called Uli from Kleinen
Wald becomes the stepson of Hans Grob, the new husband of Uli's mother. He
is only 10 years old, but still the heir of his father's properties.
According to the 1541 document he sells the property to his uncle, the
father's brother and lives with his family in the nearby village of
Lichtensteig. His new father was an influential man and Uli reaches high
posts in his new village, where he also becomes the ancestor of the
The family that stayed behind on the property Kleinen Wald (near Wattwil)
are the ancestors of the Frederick branch.
All the branches used and still use the name of Giezendanner in the old
country, but emigrants often adopted a slightly different spelling (the
score is up to 186) since May 2001.
Hope this helped.

I am connected to Christian Getzendanner and his wife, Anna Barbara Bruner,
daughter of Joseph Johann Bruner of Rotenstein, Switzerland. My information
is that they were both born in Klein-Schifferstadt, Pfalz, Germany and came
to Frederick, MD where one of their daughters, Anna Maria, later married
George Thomas Schley. (The Schleys, from whom I descend, came to Frederick,
MD from Mertzheim, Germany. George Thomas Schley's mother was Maria
Margaretha von Wintz from Zweibrucken, Germany. I mention these names here as
I am eager to know more about the von WIntz and Schley families, if anyone
knows of them.)
I think the story of young Uli is fascinating! Do you know the full names of
Uli's father and mother, perhaps?
I am searching for info on Robert C. Davis b. 1790-1800 m. Abigail ? b. 1810.
They had 12 children. He was a farmer who lived and farmed near Neeses, SC.
in Orangeburg County. They are probably buried in their family cemetery
located on their former farm near Calvery Church. I would appreciate any info
about this family. Thanks.

Someone may already have answered your question (I'm catching up reading

(their son was Jesse Malachi Howell) and, 5 APR 1782, Richland Co., South

I'm trying to find the parents of Malachi Howell. Does anyone have that

I distantly connect to William Riley Howell through my ancestor Mary Davis
Hook, who m. Clark Howell. You might want to look at the following website:
This site has a photo of William Riley HOWELL and some information about his
descendants, though I didn't find the ZEIGLER you mentioned.
(These pages are also interesting to me since they include both HUTTO and
DRIGGERS lines, both of which are my direct lines.)
Hope this helps.
My gggrandmother was Marcilah Lee born Abt. 1805, married Jesse Sanford. I am
also looking for information on Jesse parents. Jesse Sanford was born in
1800. Thanks very much for the website, will check it out.
Me write a book? Well, I did write one on Abbeville, SC, History but it
did not have a Zeigler in it.
There was a Michael Ziegler in the Moravian community at Winston Salem.
I thought he might be my Michael since my Michael was up in that area at
that time in one of the Indian battles. Not so, no connection. I
believe the Moravian Zieglers were a part of or in someway connected
with the PA Zieglers. The PA Zieglers use the "Zie" more than the "Zei"
which most SC Zeiglers use. This is not necessarily so. I found
another Michael Ziegler who was an aid to Gen Greene near Charleston, SC
during the war. The document I found was a letter that Michael had
written to a widow for the general. I thought that was unusual for a
German to be writing a letter for an Englishman. I was sure this was my
Michael as he was an educated man. Not so. This Michael was part of a
unit that had enlisted in PA and went back to PA after the war. I have
corresponded with some of the PA Zieglers on their Web Site,
ZIEGLER(a)rootsweb.com. If you have a question on the PA Ziegler you
might want to contact Brad Ziegler or post a query on their Web Site.
They may be able to help you on your Daniel B. Ziegler, Sr. b. 1784,
Shenandoah Co., Va. There were a number of PA Zieglers in Gen. Greene's
Do you know the address for the Dutch Fork Web Site. I am looking for
information on Nicholas Seigler who settled about 1752 on Crim Creek in
Lexington Co., SC and his son Adam Seigler and John Henry Seigler who
purchased property also on Crim Creek but just across the line in
Newberry Co. Tell me more about your Barbara Anna Seigler line in Dutch

Charles, I know exactly what you are going through and y'all are in my

I have William Riley Howell and Laura Prine in my database. I am
showing a daughter named Rachel Luther (?) Howell, born 3-19-1882. She
married Benjamin Stalvey Tomlinson Sr. Are these the same
families? Unfortunately, I don't have anything further on William Riley
Howell; my information comes 'down' the lines.

This is the same family. I have not put the Huxford info in my database
because I have not been on this particular line before. I will attach my
family connection. Horace Zeigler and my dad were first cousins. Horace
died in 1999 right after I published my book.
