Frederick Daniel and David Levi MYERS migrated from Orangeburg District, SC between 1809 and 1820. Daniel settled in Whistler, AL on the Gulf Coast and David settled in Perry County, MS
David Levi Myers 1771-1849 m: Sarah Wolfe 1785
Children:James Frederick, John Washington, Porter Jacob, Levi, Rachel, Sarh, Levisa, Elizabeth
Their son, Porter Jacob 1815 m: Renvy B. Rhodes 1815-1874
One of their children, Theadore Lewis 1845-1910 was my grandfather.
I have quite a bit of information on the descendants but would really like to know something about my European ancestors.
The only hint I have about my roots is family lore that says we were “black dutch” . My German friend said we were probably “Platt Deustch”,
people who fled to the plateau area of Germany. Where that might be, I do not know.
I really would appreciate any help anyone could give me to find my roots.
