FAUST By 1743, Henry FAUST was in Orangeburg District, SC where he married Anna Maria ROTH. Some other FAUSTS came in the 1750's who all seem to have been brothers to Henry.....Jacob, Peter, Casper, John and William. All of these FAUSTS originally lived along Crane Creek and Broad River in the Orangeburg District - the district later becoming Camden and still later, Richland. Inhabitants of the district between 1763 and 1773 include Casper, Henry, Jacob, John, Peter and William FAUST. Peter is listed in the 1790 Census and died in 1824. He had sons James, Buckner and Samuel FAUST; daughters Rachel and Elizabeth. I am interested in finding anyone connected to these FAUST brothers, and particularly in finding information on James FAUST, the son of Peter. (2/18/97) B. Lloyd


Balsir FAUST wife's name is unknown. From probate records of George SMITH 1817 learned that Balsir FAUST wife was the step daughter of George SMITH through his second wife Elizabeth . Does any one know the maiden names of these two ladies. 4APR2000 M.C. Sims


I am interested in learning more info about Henry Faust, who arrived in Orangeburg District (later Richland?) about 1743. His wife was Anna Maria Roth. Henry was my gggg grandfather. His son, Christian, was my ggg grandfather. Christian's son, Owen, was my gg grandfather and so on. Many of my direct Faust dscendants are buried at Springtown Church near Bamburg, SC, but I have no idea where Henry or Christian, who was born in 1743 and was married to Eunice Abstance, are buried and would like to know. Based on my sparse records, Christian was given a land grant of 640 acres by act of SC Legislature in 1797. Would also like to know where Henry came from. Please contact me. 19 April 2002 Mary Beth Cormany

FRALIC Want to link my GGrandfather to his parents in SC. John George FRALIC said he was b SC 1811 in a fort. Most likely candidate for father is Charles FRALIC in 1820 and 1830 Richland Cty censuses. Charles and John George arrived in Autauga Cty AL about the same time in the mid-1830's consistent with the TAYLOR migration to AL. Was a Richland Cty fort manned in preparation for War of 1812? Are there records? Would be most grateful for ANY information on the Richland Cty FRALIC families and would be willing to share any and all findings from other SC Counties. (1/25/98 1:13:08 PM) J.

I'm trying to find info on my great-grandfather who was murdered in 1910-1912 in we believe either Lexington or Richland counties. Is there any old newsprint or couthouse records from that era that would be helpful? If so, where would I find it? I have no name for my g-grandfather but his wife would have been Alice Frye ? and they had four children, Bessie-Edna-Lillie and my Grandfather Gary Carson Cleveland. My grandfather took the name Cleveland but since he was only around 4 yrs old at the time we believe his last name may be something different, maybe Cleland or another variation. The mother Alice died shortly after and the children were orphaned, would they have been in any kind of stste custody back then? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Craig Cleveland (5/18/99 11:37:25 PM) Craig Cleveland
