I am trying to confirm the accuracy of Holman burial listings in Anne Martin Haigler's 1985 book, The Church Records of Saint Matthew's Lutheran Church Orangeburg County, South Carolina and "The Red Church". I would like to know if there are any typos or transcription errors from the original church records to this book. Some of the data does not add up.
In Haigler's book.
1. Page 42, 1800 Sep 26 - Mr. Joseph Holman - aged 38 years. Note: this makes him being born in 1762. It is a fact from Orangeburg Book of Record that Joseph was born 8 Sep 1757, so would be off by 5 years. Was "Mr." right or should it have been "Mrs."? If it should be Mrs. then that presents problem of not knowing Joseph Holman's death date.
2. Page 43, 1806 Oct 24 - Mrs. Holman - aged 64 years. Note: this makes her being born 1742. Was the 64 correct or should it be 84? I do not know of any Holman female born in 1742. This would appear to be Mary Ann Holman, wife of Conrad Holman, but she would be 8 years old when they arrived in Charleston as a married couple wife in 1750. Being born in 1732 or 1722 are plausible birth dates as there is no sourced birth date for Mary Ann.
I understand that the original church records are in the South Caroliniana Library in Columbia, SC. Is there any other places that my have copies of the original records? I have Haigler's book and old research papers from Holman files in Leonardo Andrea papers in the above library that present these questioned facts. Any help is greatly appreciated.
