The Truth... What is it?

  Wessinger to S.C., 1752

From the bound papers of Rev. V. L. Fulmer of Newberry, S.C., at the main branch of the Lexington Co. Public Library, one finds that Mathias Wessinger arrived in Charleston, S.C. in 1752 on board the snow Rowand.

He arrived with an un-named wife and 3 small children. At the time Rev. Fulmer compiled his papers, he was confident that all of the old family Wessingers in central South Carolina were descended from Mathias Wessinger's two sons, Mathias, Jr. and Michael.

The original bounty land grant was for 250 acres on the north side of the "Saludy" River just below St. Michael's Lutheran Church.

You can check out what I have by way of the index in this [here] website.

A previous annual reunion begun in 1937 became the annual Lindler Reunion at St. Thomas Church near Chapin, S. C., which held its 63rd annual reunion in 2001.
