    • 1) 1790 SC Census:

      "4 Males over 16
      2 Males under 16
      3 Females
      8 Slaves"

      An analysis of who these people might likely be in the 1790 Census:

      4 males over 16:
      Peter Stockman Sr
      John Adam Folk, 20 (son of Catherine & 1st husb, Johan Jacob Folk)
      Jacob Folk Jr, 18 (son of Catherine & 1st husb, Johan Jacob Folk)
      George Folk, 25 (son of Catherine & Jacob Folk, but he'd be 25 yrs old! If not
      George Folk as the 4th male over 16, I'm at a loss to determine who else
      the 4th male over 16 would be unless it was a hired hand)
      2 Males under 16:
      George Stockman, 7 (son of Peter & 1st wife Barbara Mayer)
      Peter Stockman Jr, age 1-6 (son of Peter & 2nd wife Catherine Epting)
      3 Females:
      Catherine Epting, Peter's 2nd wife
      Eve Catherine Folk, 14 (dau of Catherine & her 1st husb, Johan Jacob Folk)
      Anna Maria Stockman, 14 (dau of Peter Stockman & 1st wife Barbara Mayer)
      (Elizabeth Stockman, if her ABt 1792 dob is correct, was not yet born)
      8 Slaves:
      Bob, 14 (see deeds, 1821)
      Simon, 14 (see deeds, 1821)

      2) 1790 SC Census: "The family of Peter Stockman of South Carolina is first recorded in the 1790 Census of Newberry County, SC. This census shows:

      - 4 Males over 16
      - 2 Males under 16
      - 3 Females
      - 8 Slaves

      Who were these individuals who were members of Peter's family? The early census records do not tell US much. The three females are probably the easiest to identify. Peter was married and records indicate that he had three daughters. One daughter, Anna Maria, known as Mary, married Peter Dickert II, son of Michael Dickert according to South Carolina Law Report, Spring term 1858 page 396-401. Another daughter is identified in this same document, Elizabeth, who married Solomon Suber, son of Euriah Suber. This document also identifies a son, George Stockman. The third daughter, Catherine, is identified in a gift deed from Book L page 196 Newberry Co., SC, records.

      [analysis:] ...the following possible break down can be made:

      - 4 Males over 16 (Peter Stockman Sr., John Folk, Jacob Folk, Peter Stockman, Jr.
      - 2 Males under 16 ( George Stockman, ?)
      - 3 Females (Wife Catherine, Anna Maria, and daughter DCatherine)
      - 8 Slaves (Bob and Simon ?)

      3) 1810 SC Census. "By the time of the 1810 census (the 1800 census does not seem to have a record for Peter Stockman in it), Peter's household had shrunk. Apparently he was a widower, his last wife, Barbary, was deceased. This census reads:

      - 1 Male 16-26 (?)
      - 1 Male 45 or < (Peter)
      - 1 Female 10-16 (?)
      - 1 Female 16-26 (?)

      4) 1820 SC Census. "In the 1820 census enumeration of the household of Peter Stockman it may be possible that Solomon Suber and Peter's daughter Elizabeth, along with their children were living with Peter. He subsequently deeded his home to his daughter Elizabeth. In 1821 Peter Stockman, recognizing that age had a hold on him, avoided the process of making a will by preparing gift deeds to hsi children. No dower signature appears on these deeds indicatign that Peter was a widower. In addition to the gift deed dated 19 Feb 1821 reported above in which Peter gave two slaves to his son George Stockman, Peter also completed a gift deed to his daughter Elizabeth"

  • Notes 
    • 1) "In June 1786 the court acted on a petition of Col. Philemon Waters for a road to be laid out the nearest and best way to his ferry on Saluda River from Shier's ferry on Broad River. The court ordered that a group of 18 persons should meet at their own appointment and lay out the above road the most "directest" way without prejudice to individuals and make report to the next court. 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." The State represented by Jacob Brown, gent'l attorney for the county, complained that the defendant was guilt7 of a felony be stealing an ax, the property of Gerrard Campbell. 'The jury do say by their verdict that we do find him guilty of the verdict order to be recorded'."
