151 - Newspaper Article: "Early Settlers Imported Men To Wed Girls. Early settlers in the Newberry area not only brought with them the old country customs and modes of speech, some even sent back home for young men to wed their daughters. John Adam Epting brought a large family with him from Germany, historians say, and most of his children were girls. He settled down in Saxe-Gotha near columbia, and later moved to a place on Crims Creek near Pomaria, where a number of Pennsylvania Dutch had settled. In 1762 he went ack to Germany and brought back another colony of settlers making certain, according to the story, that the group contained a good selection of eligible young men as potential husbands for his daughters."

- "This family has been described in "A History of the Epting & Epton Families of South Carolina" by Theodore Epton. John Adam Epting is found in German Church records as Johann Adam Hepding.

Early reports show that Jacob died in 1774, but later his will was found dated 1775 and later conclusions were that he died in 1777.

Peter Stockman was one of those appointed to serve.
Peter Stockman of South Carolina was a member of the Petit Jury for the June 1788 Court. He served as a juror in the case of John Pitts accused of petit Larceny. The defendant was represented by Peter Cerns Gent'l attorney and pleaded not guilty. "Where upon came also a jury to wit John Fletchall foreman, William Gragg, William Plunkett, Peter Stockman, Henry Irby, George Riser, Mich'l Cromer, James Plunkitt, William Andrew, John Floyd, Martin Taylor, and Martin Kinard."

2) "Peter Stockman sold land on 25 Dec 1795 to John Uriah Wicker and his wife Catherine signed the Dower. On 26 Dec 1795 apparently this same transaction was recorded again but again Peter and his wife Catherine signed the deed. peter Stockman's wife was Barbara when land was sold in the 1804 deed reported above. In 1799 when John Zeigler died, Peter Stockman and Barbara Stockman were appointed administrators of his estate. It appears that Peter Stockman had more than one wife and possibly three. Prior to 1784 when Peter assumed guardianship of the Folk children at least two of his children were born. These two, Anna maria and George may be children by a first wife. It is probably that in 1784 Peter married Catharine Folk, widow of Jacob and daughter of John Adam Epting, although this marriage may have taken place earlier. It is unlikely that it occurred early enough for daughter Anna Maria Stockman to have been a daughter of Catherine Epting Folk since her first husband died in 1774 [her husband's death has since been determined to be 1777 - Steve Mears] The first of Peter's wives whose name we know is Catherine who was Peter's wife in 1795. Apparently sometime after 1795 and prior to 1799 Catherine died and Peter amrried a Barbara (last name unknown)."

The land on which present day Pomaria is built was owned by one of the Folk brothers. It is here that John Jacob Folk married Catherine Epting, a daughter of Captian John Adam Epting (1715-1767_, leader of a group of settlers from Wenningstadt, Germany who had a royal land grant November 28, 1749, of 250 acres on Crim Creek.

198 1) "Peter Stockman sold land on 25 Dec 1795 to John Uriah Wicker and his wife Catherine signed the Dower. On 26 Dec 1795 apparently this same transaction was recorded again but again Peter and his wife Catherine signed the deed. Peter Stockman's wife was Barbara when land was sold in the 1804 deed reported above. In 1799 when John Zeigler died, Peter Stockman and Barbara Stockman were appointed administrators of his estate. It appears that Peter Stockman had more than one wife and possibly three. Prior to 1784 when Peter assumed guardianship of the Folk children at least two of his children were born. These two, Anna maria and George may be children by a first wife. It is probable that in 1784 Peter married Catharine Folk, widow of Jacob and daughter of John Adam Epting, although this marriage may have taken place earlier. It is unlikely that it occurred early enough for daughter Anna Maria Stockman to have been a daughter of Catherine Epting Folk since her first husband died in 1774 [Johan Jacob Folk's death has since been determined to be 1777 - Steve Mears] The first of Peter's wives whose name we know is Catherine who was Peter's wife in 1795. Apparently sometime after 1795 and prior to 1799 Catherine died and Peter married a Barbara (last name unknown)."
