					POSTELL Part I

The Postell families roots can be traced back to the early days of the province of Normandy, in France. Records of Postells who were Frenchmen can also be found at a very early date in England. In 1273, records for the presence of Geoffrey Postel are found in London, England. William Postel is also found in 1273 records in county Sussex, which is in England. Sir James Potell, a Priest, was naturalized at Arundel in Sussex, England after having resided in that country for thirty-three years. There is a marriage record in London, England for marriage between William Yonge and Elizabeth Postle, dated 1560. Baptista Postel, a subject of the kingdom of the King of France was naturalized in 1562. Baptismal records are recorded for Postells in the French Churches in 1605 and 1613. William Postel is listed as arriving at the ports of Virginia, United States of America, in 1635. Whether he is related to our branch of the Postells is unknown. He boarded ship in London, England and was listed as being age 22. There were no other Postells listed on that ships passenger list. Years of searching for descendants of that same William Postell have yielded nothing to lend a clue as to what became of him after he arrived in Virginia. John Postle is recorded as having a residence on Lodmore Lane in England in 1679. The same John Postle has a will recorded at Chester, England in 1680. There are baptismal records for families of a Jean Potel and Pierre Potel for 1685. The given names of some of these family members are common among the members of the Postell family, which settled in South Carolina in the late 1680s. They are also from the same part of Normandy as our South Carolina Postells. Today, there are still Postell family descendants living in France, England, and Germany. Some of them had ancestors who never left France, while others had ancestors who did flee from religious persecution but who settled in countries that put them just out of reach of the King Louis' rule. The Postells who are covered in this book are a portion of the descendants of the Postells of Dieppe, Normandy, in France, and later of South Carolina. This book will not cover the full ancestry of W.D. Postell or any of

his descendants, because there is already literature in print authored by his son, Phillip Smith Postell. Instead, this volume will explore the full family up to the generation of Francis Postell II. After that only the descendants of Francis II will be highlighted. The book is written in this manner because there is more family interest in the earlier Postells, and because the family is so large that one book will not hold all the information included in a full treatment of the family.

Postell Family Crest

The crest for the Postell family of upper Normandy consists of a field of silver, three green trefoils, and a slanted post (baton) of red. This is a very simple crest, which indicates that the family coat of arms is a very old one. According to Phillip Smith Postell's dissertation presented to the faculty of the graduate school of Saint Louis University in 1972, the use of a baton on a family coat of arms signifies that the family has been nobled at some time.

Part II

The members of the Postell family whose lives are covered in this writing are descendants of the Postells of Dieppe, a section of Upper Normandy, in France. We know from various data discovered by members of the Postell family who have been researching the family for years, that the family has roots that reach deeply into the history of old France. The French born Postells were members of the Huguenot (Hu-ga-no) religious sect, who were followers of the teachings of John Calvin. As Huguenots, the Postells believed that the Bible should be the basis for Christian life, and that faith was more powerful and important than good works. They also believed that the Christian ideas as laid out in the Bible were intended to reform people in all levels of society. The beliefs of the Huguenots, and of their brethren (the Puritans) in England, are most similar to that of present day Presbyterians.

Until the time of John Calvin, France was a country of people who generally practiced the teachings of the Catholic Church. In 1598, the sitting ruler (a former Huguenot, and a consistent sympathizer with the sect) King Henry IV, signed one of the most memorable royal decrees in history, which was known as The Edict of Nantes. It gave the Huguenots the right to religious freedom and also gave them equal rights as citizens among the Catholics. The Huguenots retained their freedom for a period of approximately eighty-seven years. Then King Louis XIV, an evil and greedy man, became ruler of France. He resented the power of the Huguenots and abolished the edict in 1685, returning full power to the Catholics. The Huguenots were treated savagely, many of them being slaughtered in the streets like animals. They refused to yield to King Louis, instead they held steadfastly to their beliefs. As their persecution continued to escalate, they realized that remaining in France meant certain death for them. They were forced to choose between their homeland and their religion. Nearly two hundred thousand Huguenots chose to flee from their homes in France to seek refuge in England, America, Prussia, and The Netherlands. It is believed to be at this time that the Postells left France for their journey to America. Nicholas Postell, the father of the progenitor (Jean Postell) of the American born Postells, never made it to America. One can only assume that he died at the hand of the dragoons of Louvois, whom King Louis XIV ordered to attack the Huguenots in such a way as to make an example of them to the rest of the people in the province. There are only two other possibilities that could account for Nicholas not making it to America. (1) He died before the exodus of the Huguenots from France. (2) He died at some point along the journey to America. The Huguenots of the small coastal town of Dieppe, in the province of Normandy in the upper part of France, of which the Postells were a part, were known to be more steadfast and obstinate in defense of their religious beliefs than all others in the kingdom. It is said that their fight with the dragoons was longer, harder, and bloodier than any other because the king was determined that the Huguenots of Dieppe would be conquered. It seems that that particular sect of Huguenots were especially successful and prosperous, and they were able to remain in good spirits and were still high in number, ever after many years of suppression and pain at the hand of the king. The dragoons vowed to create whatever mayhem necessary to break the Huguenots. After the bitter battle that followed, many of the faithful Huguenots lay dead or dying. Those who lived through the atrocities inflicted on them were a defeated and desperate people. In our line of Postells, Nicholas and his wife, Marye Brugnet Postell, and their two known children, Jean and Mary-Marie, were all natives

of the town of Dieppe.

______________________Nicholas Postell_____________________ | | Jean Postell Mary-Marie Postell

Marye Brugnet Postell, and her children Jean and Mary-Marie, reached the seaport town of Charlestown (later modified to Charleston), South Carolina sometime after 1685. Their journey via ship to this country appears to have included stops at other port towns and villages in the West Indies such as the isle of St. Christopher, Guadeloupe, Barbados, and the Antilles. Many Huguenots tried to make new homes on these islands, but religious persecution followed them, and they were eventually forced to continue on their journey to the safety of the new lands of America. It is not known whether the Postell family made any effort to live on the islands of the West Indies, but it would not be surprising since they were accustomed to the lifestyle of a small seaport. Upon reaching South Carolina, the Huguenots quickly made a place for themselves. They settled in sects, creating their own communities and establishing their own churches. One of their largest settlements was along the Santee River, located just north of the main part of Charlestown. This is where Jean Postell and his wife, Madeline Pepin Postell, chose to make their first home. Madeline was the daughter of Alexandre Pepin and his wife, Madeleine Garillon, all of whom were natives of Grenoble, France. Madeline Pepin Postell had a brother, Paul Pepin, who also came to South Carolina from Grenoble. Jean Postell and Madeline Pepin were probably married on the journey to America, or shortly after they reached the shores of South Carolina. A probable time period would be 1685-1689. Jean and Madeline were the parents of four sons: Jean, Pierre, Jacques, and Jean Jr., thus the beginning of the Postell family in this country, the United States of America.

Jean Postell must have been a very intelligent man, for he was a very successful South Carolina planter. While he was never a wealthy man, he did amass an estate that was quite above the average for that time. We do know that Jean Postell continued to speak in his native French after reaching America, because his will was written in French. We do not know whether he mastered the English language during his lifetime, but it is quite likely that he did have some accomplishments in that area, for there were many people settled in the same area of South Carolina who were natives of England and Ireland. As a landowner, Jean Postell's performance was that of a very competent man. Records in the South Carolina Archives in Columbia show that Jean Postell was issued a warrant for a land lot in town on June 12, 1993. On May 15, 1694, records show that he held warrants for land lots 177 and 178 on Broad Street, in Charleston. He also owned a plantation in the country that was situated west of Slann's Bridge, near the Cypress Swamp. At some point, Jean moved his family to an area known as Goose Creek, which is situated on the upper section of the Ashley River. Jean Postell was a member of the Goose Creek Huguenot Church, well respected within the community, and apparently quite active in Goose Creek affairs. On January 17, 1710, Jean Postell was issued a warrant for six hundred acres of land located in Berkeley County. This also according to records found in the South Carolina Archives, in Columbia. After this time, Jean Postell seemed to concentrate his energies on working his land, rather than adding to his holdings, as record of land warrants taken in his name seemed to dwindle after 1710. Written accounts of the register of St. Phillips Parish list Jean Postell as buried on October 16, 1729. It is estimated that Jean Postell was in his late fifties or early sixties when he died.

Part III

Little factual information is available regarding Nicholas Postell, but we do know that he was born in Dieppe, France and that he lived there with his wife, Marye Brugnet, and that their two known children, Jean and Mary-Marie, were also born in Dieppe. It is almost certain that Nicholas Postell took an active part in the defense of the people of Dieppe during the battles between the French Huguenots and the dragoons of King Louis XIV. There are three schools of thought as to the demise of Nicholas

Postell. The first is that he was killed in one of the many brutal battles of Dieppe, and buried by his family there, before they fled to America. The second is that he died from unknown causes on board ship, and may be buried on one of the small islands where the ships made regular stops during the journey to America. The third thought is that he did make it to America, but died shortly after reaching the shores of Caroline, and therefore was not listed by his family as having traveled with them from France. Whatever the cause of his death, we definitely know that Nicholas Postell is our ancestor, because his wife was listed on the ship's passenger list as Marye Brugnet, the widow of Nicholas Postell. Keep in mind that the passenger lists were drawn and recorded several years after the Postells came to America, so Marye being listed as a widow does not necessarily mean that she was a widow when she first arrived in America. A personal study of the battles of the Huguenot people in France, and particularly those of Dieppe, will enlighten you more about the trials and tribulations suffered by many of our Postell ancestors. Persons wishing to study these dates and occurrences more closely, should read the book "HUGUENOT EMIGRATION TO AMERICA" by Charles W. Baird, original copyright 1885, reissued 1973 by Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, Maryland. There is also a vast amount of information on the Postell family at the South Carolina Archives in Columbia, South Carolina, and at the historical society in Charleston, South Carolina.

JEAN POSTELL Jean Postell was born in Dieppe, Normandy in France about 1660. His wife, Madeline Pepin, was born about 1670 in Grenoble, France. They were married about 1685. Whether they married in France, along their journey to America, or even after they landed at Charlestown, S.C., we do not know. Jean and Madeline were the parents of sons, John Pierre, Jacques, and John Jr., the first members of the Postell family to be born in America. We do not know in which trade Jean Postell was trained in France, but he earned a good living as a planter in South Carolina. He owned several valuable parcels of land in and around Charlestown. He is listed as a landowner in French Santee, Goose Creek, and town lots 177 and 178 in Charlestown. The land in French Santee was situated along the Santee River, and his holdings at Goose Creek were along the upper Ashley River. Most farmers chose to settle near rivers or creeks because of the vast availability of water, necessary for the successful growth of their crops. The reason for purchasing the land lots in Charlestown is easy to understand. While the Postells were not wealthy people, they did have a high social standing and probably found it to be much easier to take their part in society by living (at least part-time) in the city.

Aside from his land holdings, Jean Postell owned twenty-two slaves, which would have made it possible for him and his family to be away from the family plantation during the hottest part of the summer. With that much help, he could have maintained his crops in good order and still have had plenty of time to enjoy the genteel society of Charlestown. While Jean Postell did not live to be a very old man (estimates of his age at the time of his death range from the late fifties to the early sixties), through much hard work and good land investments, he provided a very good base for his children to build on. So it is that Jean Postell left a strong legacy, not just to his sons, but also to every descendant from his day to the present time. If measured by current standards, Jean Postell would certainly have to be recognized as supremely successful in both his business and personal endeavors. 101 Nicholas Postell 201 Jean Postell Madeline Pepin occupation: farmer homemaker born: 1660 1670 place: Dieppe, France France married: circa 1685 place: S.C. died: 1729 unknown place: S.C. buried: St. Phillip's unknown John Postell (of Berkeley) occupation: farmer homemaker born: 1686 place: Berkeley Co., S.C. married: 1716 place: S.C. died: January 28, 1945 place: S.C. buried: S.C. 302 Pierre Postell never married occupation: farmer 301

There has always been some mystery in regard to Pierre Postell. Research yields few actual facts about his life. The only thing that really gives credence to his life is that his name is listed on the burial register at St. Phillip's Parish in Charleston, S.C., where Jean Postell is buried, but there is no record or date of actual burial. There is however, the very important question as to whether Jean and Madeline Postell had three children or four. In the book, "HUGUENOT EMIGRATION TO AMERICA" by Charles W. Baird, the children of Jean and

Madeline Postell are listed as Jean (John); Pierre (Peter); and Jacques-Jean (James-John). If Charles W. Baird's listing is correct, (and he took his information from the Liste des Francois et Suisses refugiez en Caroline [List of French and Swiss refugees to Caroline]), then there is the question of an extra family or two that would need to be reconstructed in an order different to that currently accepted as correct. One thing is certain, Charles Baird's work shows that he was a very meticulous researcher. It is hard to believe he would have made the mistake of combining the names of two people into one hyphenated form. We must also remember that Charles Baird's work was done in the mid to late 1800s. His information was probably much more accurate than that we have available to us now, and he could have had benefit of personal contact with Postell family members who would have had the correct information. The Postell family lived very close knit for the first hundred years they were in this country. It would stand to reason that the generations Charles Baird could have talked with would have been well taught in the family history. It makes much more sense that there were only three children, and that family research has just failed (or refused) to recognize it as fact. If there were only three original family lines descending from Jean and Madeline Postell, it would also mean that we have all descending lines accounted for, with the need for a few changes in the early alignment of the family. JOHN POSTELL John Postell, the eldest son of Jean and Madeline Postell, and his wife Hannah Green Postell, were the parents of five children: John (of Georgetown, S.C.); James (of Dorchester, S.C.); Elijah; Benjamin: and Jane Postell. Like his father, John Postell lived in South Carolina during the time that it was governed by eight English noblemen, who were chosen by King Charles II, known as the lords' proprietors. When the lords proprietors failed to protect the Carolina settlers from the French and Spanish forces who invaded the colony during the Queen Anne War (1702-1713), and from other threatening forces such as the Yamasee Indians, and raids by pirates (1715-1718 [Blackbeard was terrorizing the settlements along the Carolina coast during this time period]), the colonists found that they were on their own. They defended themselves against these attacks successfully, and disgusted with the lack of assistance from the lords' proprietors, the House of Commons of South Carolina (1716-1717) circulated a list of grievances against the proprietors to be signed by the colonists to petition for the right to be self-governing. This petition was signed by most of the white males in the colony, including John Postell. In 1719, as a result of the colonists' petition, King George I

bought the South Carolina area from the lords proprietors and at that time it became a royal colony of Great Britain. While King George I agreed that the settlers should be allowed to govern themselves, the colony of South Carolina was to operate under the rule of Great Britain. Ten years later (1729), King George I bought the North Carolina area from the lords proprietors and made both North and South Carolina royal provinces. Other interesting facets to the life of John Postell are his records as a prosperous landowner. His holdings included several hundred acres of property in Berkeley, Colleton, and Granville Counties in South Carolina. By the time of his death, he held warrants to about five thousand acres of land. It is evident that John Postell inherited his financial fortitude from his father. John Postell died on January 28, 1745, but his place of burial is unknown. 101 201 301 Nicholas Postell Jean Postell John Postell occupation: farmer homemaker born: 1686 place: Berkeley Co., S.C. married: 1716 place: S.C. died: January 28, 1945 place: S.C. buried: S.C. 401 John Postell (of Georgetown) occupation: farmer; military homemaker born: 1717 1723 place: Berkeley Co., S.C. married: 1744 place: S.C. died: 1782 unknown place: S.C. buried: S.C.

Jacques (James) Postell Jacques (James) Postell, the third son of Jean and Madeline Postell, and his wife Judith, were the parents of Francis, John, Jane, Elizabeth, and Magdalen Postell. James and Judith Postell were both active in the affairs of their community. They maintained close ties to the other members of the Postell family as is evident by the locations of their dwellings. James and his brother, John Postell Jr., inherited large land parcels from their aunt, Marie Postell Boisseau Gignilliat. Each brother got two hundred acres in an area called Waring's Cypress, and six hundred acres in Blake's Cypress, which borders Waring's. Sometime later, James purchased five hundred and six acres of land from Stephen Monk. This land also bordered his holdings in Blake's and Waring's Cypress. James Postell had political interests too. He was one of the men whose signature was found on the petition of the colonists to the royal crown of Great Britain requesting the right to be self-governing. It is easy to see why men such as James Postell would have wanted the right to govern themselves. After all, the interests of their family and their future welfare were at stake. Industrious men, such as the Postells, are to be applauded for their forthright actions on behalf of freedom for the colonists from the rule of the lords' proprietors. A definite date of death has not been established for James Postell, but it is believed that he died about 1750. As far as is known, he left no will, but his age at death is estimated to be about sixty years.

John Postell Jr. John Postell Jr., the youngest son of Jean and Madeline Postell, appears to have been married twice. Historical data reveals that reference is made to a wife, Margaret Poiteven Postell, and also to Marguerite Deveaux Postell. John was the father of four children: Pierre, Mary, Andrew, and Magdalen Postell. John Jr., received the same amount of land in the Cypress Swamps from his aunt, Marie Postell Boisseau Gignilliat, as that left to his older brother, James Postell. Otherwise, there is little business activity recorded by John Postell Jr. Whether he had other business dealings that researchers have failed to find, or whether he was just content to live on the land he received in

the Cypress Swamp, is hard to say. Perhaps he preferred a quieter, simpler style of life than that of his brothers. John Postell Jr., died in 1737 at an estimated age of forty-five years. 101 Nicholas Postell 201 Jean Postell 304 John Postell Jr. Poiteven occupation: farmer 1698 born: 1692 1721 place: Berkeley Co., S.C. married: circa 1719 place: S.C. married: circa 1722 Deveaux place: S.C. 1700 died: 1737 place: S.C. buried: S.C. 401 Pierre Postell never married occupation: born: circa 1720 place: S.C. married: single place: died: circa 1750 place: S.C. buried: S.C. 402 Andrew Postell Susan McPherson occupation: military homemaker born: 1723 unknown place: S.C married: circa 1772 place: S.C. died: April 11, 1806 unknown

John Postell (of Georgetown) John Postell (of Georgetown, S.C.) was the oldest son of John and Hannah Postell of Berkeley Co., S.C. He married Mary Moore, daughter of South Carolina Governor James Moore, on September 26, 1744. They were the parents of three sons: James, John, and Jehu Postell. John Postell had an impressive military career, which began at about the age of thirty-nine years. On January 31, 1756 he began recruiting a company of volunteers consisting chiefly of Huguenots. Among the volunteers coming forward to join Postell were two young brothers, Gabriel and Francis Marion. Francis Marion was just about twenty-five years of age at the time,

but he was eager to serve under Postell. John Postell received a captain's commission from Governor Glen on July 16, 1756, and was one of two men chosen to head the construction of Fort Loudon on the Little Tennessee River. This project kept him at work until the fort was completed in August of 1757. The Cherokee Indians continued to be hostile to the settlers along the South Carolina borders, and this threat caused Governor William Henry Lyttelton to expand the armed forces in the area. The Fort Loudoun adventure, and the Cherokee War, was not the end of Captain John's military career, but merely the beginning. He was very active in the Revolutionary War participating unofficially, but under the directives of General Francis Marion. He made a sizeable contribution by contributing much needed supplies to Marion and his men. On January 17, 1781, Captain Postell, who was by that time an elderly man of seventy years, was captured by the British during the fall of Charleston and imprisoned. After signing a parole, he was allowed to return home, but his peace was short lived. Hoping to make an example of old Captain Postell to others sympathetic to the fight for freedom from the British, Captain James DePeyster seized the Postell mansion and ordered his men to strip the plantation bare. After a long and patriotic military career, old Captain Postell died in South Carolina later in 1782. 101 Nicholas Postell 201 Jean Postell 301 John Postell 401 John Postell (of Georgetown) spouse: Mary Moore occupation: farmer; military occupation: homemaker born: 1717 born: circa 1723 place: Berkeley Co., S.C. place: S.C. married: 1744 place: S.C. died: 1782 died: unknown place: S.C. place: S.C. buried: S.C. buried: S.C. 501 Perry Colonel James Postell spouse: Susannah born: 1747 died:

Colonel James Postell James Postell, son of John and Mary Postell of Georgetown, was a dedicated soldier during the Revolutionary War. He served first as an ensign in the Gentlemen Volunteers of St. Bartholomew's Parish, S.C., and was a major under General Richardson during 1779. James reached the rank of lieutenant colonel while serving under Colonel Joseph Kershaw in the militia. He held the rank of brigade major to General Lachlan McIntosh at the time of his capture during the fall of Charleston. He was exchanged for American held British prisoners in June of 1780. At that time he began serving his country in General Francis Marion's army. Under General Marion, James Postell began what was to be his most daring and adventurous exploits of the Revolution. Colonel Postell raided the British stockpiles of rice and salt, and impounded all the ammunition he could find. General Marion's reasons for continually choosing the Postell brothers, Captain John and Colonel James, to do his bidding in the Georgetown area was due to the fact that they had been raised on a large plantation just above Georgetown. According to General Marion, the Postell brothers knew every creek, path, and roadway along the Lower Peedee river. They were also acquainted with every Whig and Tory in the district. As the brothers inquired about stores of salt, they learned from friends of one-hundred-fifty bushels stored on Waccamaw Neck. According to their sources, the stockpile of salt was unguarded. In the days of the Revolutionary War, salt was a precious commodity. It sold for ten silver dollars a bushel, and few Whigs or Tories had gold or silver with which to buy it. Marion ordered the Postells to organize a party of men to assist them in taking the salt. Once Marion had a quantity of salt large enough stored on Snow's Island, he ordered his men to distribute it out in allotments of a bushel or less to every Whig family in the area, thus earning more support and a larger following for himself. Colonel James Postell's private life was as fast paced and faceted as his military career. He was married three times, and the father of two children. His first wife, Susannah Perry, was the mother of his children, James and Mary Postell. Susannah lived to be approximately sixty-two years old. Shortly after her death on October 19, 1809, James married Rachel North Kenny, who died at some time prior to 1818. His last marriage, and certainly his most notorious, was to Jane Bertwhistle. She was an eighteen year old bride, fifty-six years her husband's junior.

As for the rest of Colonel James life, it is as exciting and active as those who know his history would expect it to be. He was a very political minded person, serving first as tax collector of St. Bartholomew's Parish in 1779; a representative from St. Phillip's and St. Michael's Parishes to the South Carolina Assembly in 1782-1784; and a representative of St. Luke's Parish in the 1790-1792 session of the state assembly. After the 1792 assembly, James Postell was elected sheriff of the Beaufort District from 1792-1793. He was elected as a senator to the upper house from St. Luke's Parish in 1797. He was again elected sheriff in 1800, and in 1804 he served a second time as senator from St. Luke's Parish to the upper house. After a full and rewarding life, Colonel James Postell died at the home of his daughter near Coosawhatchie in the Beaufort District of South Carolina, at the age of seventy-nine years. 101 201 301 401 501 Perry Nicholas Postell Jean Postell John Postell John Postell Colonel James Postell

Francis Postell II Very little is known of the personal life of Francis Postell, son of Francis I and Elizabeth Davis Postell. Record of his military life is better known. Francis II served in the Revolutionary War. He enlisted in the Sixth Regiment on August 4, 1777 and became a corporal on December 14, 1778. He was listed as a private on February 7, 1779. He served in the First Regiment and is on the 1780 roll. He also served in the South Carolina militia. As a result of his military career, Francis II received a grant for forty acres of land in the old ninety-six district of upper South Carolina, an area that later became Abbeville, S.C. Francis II, and his wife, Margaret Chastain Postell lived in the old ninety-six district for quite a while before moving to Buncombe Co., North Carolina. Their sons, Thomas T. Postell and James H. D. Postell were born in Buncombe County. The birthplace of their daughters Malinda and Matilda is not certain. Some family researchers believe that their birthplace was somewhere in North Carolina also. Others believe that the family returned to Abbeville, South Carolina and that the girls were born there. Whatever the case, the children of Francis II lived close to one another throughout most of their lives. During the last ten years of his life, Thomas T. left the mountains of North Carolina and Georgia and moved south. He settled in Paulding County, Georgia where he and his fourth wife, Nancy Brock Burnett raised their family. Thomas T. was seventy-four years old at the birth of his fourteenth child. All four children of Francis II and Margaret Chastain Postell, had large families. Their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren settled thickly in Cherokee and Macon Counties in North Carolina, and in

Union and Fannin Counties in Georgia. From the mountains of the Appalachians, the descendants of Francis Postell II branched out into all areas of the world, and following the patterns of their ancestors, have proved to be very industrious and prosperous people. 101 Nicholas Postell 201 Jean Postell 303 Jacques Postell 401 Francis Postell I 501 Francis Postell II Maggie Chastain occupation: military homemaker born: 1760 1780 place: S.C. married: circa 1800 place: S.C. died: circa 1815 unknown place: S.C. buried: S.C. 601 Thomas T.
