1803 - Will of Richard Lewallen.   Wife Lettice to whom he gives two Negroes, Molow? and Jacob, 1/2 land they lived on by the Savannah River, horse, sheep, cattle, left to her by her father.   Gives a $2 bequest to his sister Lettice and mentions his brother Mays Lewallen.   The Will was witnessed by James Baird, Andrew M. Goocher unto Andrew Hamilton.   Ord. Abbeville Dist. sum $10,000.
(NOTE:   The given name of his wife and his sister are both usual names. In 1752 Norfolk County, VA, Edward Lewallen named two daughters in his Will - Lettisha and Lettas so Lettas could have been Lettuce -- not the same as the wife of Richard, of course.   In 1768 Letta Lewallen married Benjamin Bunting in Norfolk.   I'm only pointing this out because of the similarity of names and the fact Richard may have been related in some way to Edward although Edward's Will doesn't mention a

According to the Leonardo Andrea Collection, File 285, Flewelling of Laurens County, South Carolina, Phoebe Garrett was the daughter of Thomas Flewelling of Laurens County, SC. According to Mr. Andrea, Thomas Flewelling executed a deed in Laurens County granting property to his "daughter" Phoebe Garrott, Joseph Potts & wife Milleah, William Dillard, and Joseph Martindale. According to Andrea, Thomas Flewelling's children were Phoebe Garrett wife of John Garrett, Sr.; Milleah wife of Joseph Potts; Susannah wife of William Dillard; Mary wife of Joseph Martindale. Susannah Dillard died in 1837 (Union Co., SC?) survived only by sisters as heirs and their names were Mileah Potts, Sarah Fincher, Elizabeth Ellis, and Elvina Gray, so it would appear there are additional sisters   (from a posting on GenForum)

1768 - Mary Luallen (daughter of Hugh Luallen of Pennsylvania) married Joseph Wofford of Spartanburg.   Her sister, Martha, married Benjamin Wofford and the family moved to Huntsville, Madison County, Alabama.   Note:   A book on the Woffords say that the Woffords moved from the Rock Creek area of Maryland to Spartanburg in the 1770's.   If, in fact, Mary and Joseph were married 1768, then they must have moved to Spartanburg prior to the 1770's.
From a GenForum posting:   "...Hugh Llewellyn as a Quaker and a member of the Bush River and Wateree Meetings. Shows a date of 1750 for Llewellyn. I am not sure exactly what the date represents. If Martha was born in 1752 in PA, then her father wasn't in SC quite as early as 1750, but the date could be approximate..."
