I am a lover of history and my family history. Gift given to me by my father and grandfather. We come from New York in 1623 to Pennsylvania to South Carolina in 1750 to Arkansas in 1880 to TEXAS for me now is home since 1997. In my lines are Mark Twain and William Barret Travis. I have a great understanding of many of the families who traveled together. Us German people stayed very clanish for a long long time and for history sake makes it so much fun and easier to stay connected...
I am a fellow lover of ancestry, and I saw your activity on Findagrave.com, and I have a question for you. I see from the Find A Grave memorial #58469037 (Absolam Hendrix), that his real burial place is under the waters of Lake Murray. This is also true of several of his family members. I am looking for the burial place of one of his sons, specifically Emanuel Hendrix (1817-1901). The Find A Grave site for Emanuel Hendrix says he is buried at the cemetery of St. Andrews church in Columbia, SC, but I have tried requesting a photo of his gravesite there, and the photo volunteer let me know that he tried but couldn't find a Hendrix at all at the St. Andrews cemetery, so I think he is not really buried there. I'm wondering if perhaps he is also buried under the waters of Lake Murray, like his father and some of his siblings.
Emanuel's second wife was Elizabeth Miller, daughter of Joshua Miller, my 3rd-great grandfather. Joshua Miller moved from Lexington County to what is now Saluda County in 1838, and many of his descendants still live in that area, and it is where I grew up.
John Fulmer John Fulmer's parents were: Aberhart Fulmer b. 1773 d.1840s, married to Mary S. Summer b. 1774 d. 1840s. Aberhart was the son of Capt. Jacob Fulmer alias Johann Jakob Vollmer and Nancy Lightfoot.
OUR FAMILIES UNDER LAKE MURRAY I understand your sentiments about so many family members' graves now being under the waters of Lake Murray. What families are you related to in this vicinity? All of my ancestors were descendants of the early settlers in the "Dutch Fork" area. Welcome to Find a Grave. You'll love and appreciate this fantastic website.
