According to the book, ANNA, he was a cousin on the “Timmons” side. There was an Elizabeth Molett listed as head of household in 1800 Beaufort census and her property joined Thomas Timmons. There was also a Mr.-----Molett who residents wanted for the Ferry operator for Port Royal. W. P. Molett married Margaret Ann Ulmer of Beaufort in 1813 and they moved to the new territory of Dallas County, Alabama in 1817. I have much information about her ancestors but nothing about the Moletts or his Timmons connection. Can anyone help?   16 Jan. 2010 Betsy Mallory

MOSTOWITZ My great grandfather, Morris Mostowitz (aka Mostohwitz, Mostrowitz) came to Charleston from somewhere in New York State c. 1879 with his family, consisting then of his wife, nee Etta Samelnik (aka Henrietta Sams), and their young sons Barney, Daniel, and Benjamin. Daniel died 12/23/1895 age 17. He is believed to have been buried at K.K. Beth Elohim in Charleston, but no grave stone has been found. I believe Benjamin must have died young as well and been buried either in Charleston or Savannah. They lived at 60 Tradd Street and then at 21 Gadsden Street in Charleston during 1879-80. A fourth brother, Israel, was born in May 1880, and later that year the family probably moved to Beaufort County (possibly Keins Neck), where they lived until circa 1900. Morris is thought to have been in the feed and grain business in Beaufort; he also had a general store in Colleton County, a bakery and a grocery store in Charleston. My grandfather, Barney Mostowitz, married his cousin, Ida Schultze, in 1892 in Charleston, and they also resided in Beaufort (in Yemasee Township) until shortly after the Census of 1900. Their first child, Henry (Harry), died 1/18/1896 at age 3 and is believed to have been buried at K.K. Beth Elohim; again, no grave stone has been found. Also, Mendel Sams (aka Samelnik), a young cousin of both Barney and Ida, died in infancy in Beaufort c. 1891 and is probably buried in Charleston or Savannah. Any information on this family will be greatly appreciated. Revised 24 January 2003 Joel Rose
