Witt Genealogy.  The 1790 Newberry Co SC cen identifies Adrian Whitt (Witt) with a household of "2 free white males of 16 yrs and upward, including head of family."  "one free white male under 16 yrs," and "5 free white females" The 1790 cen indicates that in 1790 Adrian Witt was the father of only two sons and two daughters.  The book Before Michael Witt and After, A Genealogy of the Witt Family with South Carolina Origins, 1752-1997.  The book identifies Adrian Witt as the father of Michael Witt (b-1773) and Martin Witt (b-1777.  The book also identifies Adrian Witt as the probable son of the German immigrant Johann Adam Wild (1715-1764).  Johann Adam Wild left Ziegelhausen, Germany, a suburb of Heidelberg, and immigrated to South Carolina in the early 1700s,  Among other facts and records presented in this book are two records regarding Jeremiah McDanial and John McDanial in 1799.  Second, Martin Witt and Michael Witt are shown as the appraisers for the estate of Mary Funderlinder.  The authors, David H. Witt, Randall S. Frye, and Grover R. Witt, are desc of Michael Witt.  per Ancestors and Descendants of William Whitt, 1775-1850, Portrait of an American Family, by David F.

George Settle, husband of dau, Juliana Fall Settle, was the administrator. Nickolas Rouse appraised the land. One of the debts to the FALLS estate was $100 to John McCune/McEwen/McUen and others, so they had a sale: horse, saddle blanket, plow, hand saw, and buckets were some of the items listed.

FAHL-FALL FAMILY BIBLE. The Family Bible of Christian Fall, Sr (1740-1801) is in the Union Co Museum in the basement of the courthouse in Liberty, Indiana. Printed in German and contains the following in German script:

"16 Nov 1762, Christian Fahl married Julianna Finn. He lived 15 yrs with her and had 9 children--3 of whom died. The others are living as long as God wills. 8th day of August 1777 wife was called to last rest. In 1731 she was born.  In 1778--4th day of August, he married Magdalena." ......writer thinks this 1731 is prob an illegible 1751.
