I have a bit better info now from your husband's cousin. Let me know if you have anything to add. It's not proper genealogy to include "living" folks though I slip up at times. Let me know if you want more on Jacob and the matriarch Zibilla. I don't get together with the Wolfes until way down a branch in Drew County, AR where some of them married m WEST'S AND DANIEL'S but I got interested in the family and continued researching until I have a massive document, some verified, some not. You now have what I have on the Wolfe/Izlar match but you might want to get in touch with Richard Byrd who is an excellent researcher. Of course I'd like to be included in any additional information.

Buried:

No entry for marriage on the SCGenWeb Archives: Marriage Records. A Cebilla Wolfe is mentioned in the litigation concerning settlement of
the will of Johannes Wolfe. This is probably another spelling of the name Zibilla. There is also the name Hannah which cannot be related to any of the other names but is mentioned in the litigation.

Only mention of Jacob Yssler (Izlar) in The History of Orangeburg County, SC, under Chapter 2, Giessendanner records is on Page 179: (510) On Sunday September 1758. In Orangeb….. Church Anna, Daughter of Joseph & Anna Cook; born August 14th 1758. Suret: Jacob Yssler, Rachel, wife of Michael Lary & Barbara Frolich, widow

Per Oscar Easler: Jacob Isler came to South Carolina in 1734 with his father, Hans Jacob Isler, his mother and two brothers aboard the ship St. Andrew. Disease onboard the vessel killed many and most were not allowed to debark. Others returned to Switzerland. The following is an account of the tragedy: "Lloyd Zachary and Thomas Bond, physicians, stated in a certificate, under date of October 27, 1788: 'We have carefully examined the state of health of the marines and passengers on board of the ship St. Andrew, Captain Stedman, from Totterdam, and found a great number laboring under a malignant erruptive fever, and are of the opinion, they cannot, for some time, be landed in town without the danger of infecting the inhabitants.'"

I will share with you the document that I shared with Oscar Easler. It is a document that is in the possession of Jack Izlar Byrd of
Bamberg, SC. From what I have been able to tell the information appears to be correct. I hope that e-mail does not foul up the

THE IZLAR RECORD

Notes of a conversation I had with my father, W. H. Izlar, on the night of the 13th, April 1872.

--- By James F. Izlar ---

W.H. Izlar said his father was Jacob Izlar. That Jacob Izlar said his father came to this country from Germany before the Revolutionary War.
W.H. Izlar did not recollect his grandfathers name (if he knew it). From papers in my possession I learned his name after my fathers death. (It was also Jacob Izlar). He married a Miss Wolfe who was a sister of the father of Andrew and Jacob Wolfe. Both of the parents of Jacob Izlar Jr., father of William H. Izlar died when he was quite small. He, Jacob, the father of W.H. Izlar, was an orphan boy during the Revolutionary War and lived with one Pendarvis on the Cannon Bridge road, about 14 miles from Orangeburg. Pendarvis kept him until after the war, and then his Uncle Wolfe kept him until he was grown. Wolfe lived about where Andrew D. Frederick now lives. (Mr. Fulton Dukes now owns the place). After he (Jacob Izlar) father of W. H. Izlar was grown he went about overseeing. This was his occupation until his marriage. He was overseeing for old Mr. Donald Rowe at his place near Rowes Bridge when he married. He married in the year 1809. He was the only child of his parents. He married Ann Elizabeth Rickenbaker, daughter of John and Elizabeth Rickenbaker. Elizabeth Rickenbaker 1st, nee Rowe was the sister of Peter Rowe. She was also the sister of Rachel Rowe who married Timothy Barton parents of Col. D.R. Barton, also sister of Magdaline Rowe who never married. (These were children of Henry C. Rowe). Jacob Izlar, father of W.H. Izlar, was 40 years old when he married the first time. He was married twice. His last wife was Harriet Burnham Rowe. He had by his first wife, six children. William H., Laura, Ann, Jacob, Sarah, and Eliza. By his second wife 5 children. Jacob, John, Benjamin, Elizabeth and Samuel. Elizabeth Ann Rickenbaker, 1st wife of Jacob Izlar, was reputed to be the handsomest woman in the forks of the Edisto. She had black hair, and eyes. All of her children but Eliza had light hair, and blue eyes. The mother of Jacob Izlar first wife, was the seventh Wife of old Mr. Geroge Pooser. The next year, after his first marriage, Jacob Izlar 2nd bought the place now owned by Ira T. Shoemaker, where he lived the balance of his life. He built that house; Moses Baltzeager was the carpenter. Jacob Izlar 2nd, bought the place from one Sojourner. There were only 300 acres when he bought, but he added to it by purchase until he had about 1000 acres. His first wife was cut out by the will of her father but at the death of her mother she received her mothers estate. Jacob Izlar said when he was living with Pendarvis, he sent him out on an old blind horse to feed hogs. That he was in the road about the place where the four mile post now stands on the Cannon Bridge Road. That a party of Torys came along and took the old horse from him. The place was pointed out to W.H. Izlar by his father. He was then a poor and destitute orphan with no protector. My father also showed me an oak tree where the little shanty of Joe McBeth a colored man lived, just after the "War Between the States". Jacob Izlar said he saw three Torys hanging there during the Revolutionary War. He also pointed out this oak tree to his son W.H. Izlar.

Stephen Curry was the grandfather of my mother Julia Elizabeth Allison Pou. Stephen Curry married Frances Allison. By this marriage there were four daughters. Mary who first married Edward Fitz or (Fitts). After his Death she married Fountain. Jane married John Wright. Ann married George McClellan. Hester Beatrix married Daniel Pou. By this last marriage Hester B. and Daniel Pou, there were three children two sons, and one daughter, Julia Elizabeth Allison Pou (my mother). She married William Henry Izlar. By this marriage there were ten children. Mary Elvira, James Ferdinand, Cornelia Frances, Benjamin Pou, William Valmore, Lauriston Theodore, Adolphus Madison, Laura Josephine, Jacob Alonzo and Thomas Alexander Izlar.

1. Elvira the eldest married John P. Frederick

2. James the next married Frances Lovell.

3. Cornelia married Dr. D.W. Barton.

4. Benjamin married twice. His first wife was Lizzie Rice the next Mary Larissey.

5. William married Annie Felder.

6. Lauriston married Ellen Sanders.

7. Adolphus married Hennie Smith.

8. Josephine married F. M. Green.

9. Alonzo married Virginia McMichael.

10. Thomas married Illie Black.

William H. Izlar, and Julia his wife, lived to see their ten children married and settled in life. Of the ten children all are now alive,
Save Elvira, Benjamin and Adolphus. All had children.

It is a remarkable fact that in the War Between The States, James, Benjamin, Willie, Lauriston, and Adolphus were all volunteers, and
served in the Confederate Army. They all belonged to the same Company G 25 Reg' S.C.V. The 25 Reg', commanded by Col' Simonton, was part of General Johnsons famous Brigrade. The Brigade served in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, and took part in all important engagements. Strange to say that all the five sons survived the war. None were then married save James, Benjamin, and Adolphus. They lived many years after the war. The other three James, William and Lauriston are alive today March 5, 1903.
It may be asked how is this strange fact accounted for! I answer, it was all the result of the prayers of pius and righteous parents.

Daniel Pou, my grandfather was the brother of Lewis, John and James Pou. Stephen Curry, the father of my grandmother Hester Pou, was an
Englishman. He was in the Revolutionary War, married during the war, Frances Allison. She stayed in camp with her husband when stationed around Charleston S.C. Stephen Curry held many positions of honor and trust.

The foregoing is copied from a conversation I had with my father William H. Izlar on the night of the 13th April 1872, save so much thereof as
Relates to the family of Wm H. and Julia E.A. Izlar. This part I have written down of my own knowledge in order that the same may be preserved to posterity.

March 5th, 1903. James F. Izlar.

I find Christopher Rowe involved in land transactions with Thomas MCADAMS in Orangeburgh, SC in 1768 and 1769. However, I do not show a daughter of Christopher Rowe marrying Thomas McAdams.

Christopher ROWE was born about 1715 in Scotland. From there, he immigrated in the 1730s to South Carolina. He married (1) 21 Dec 1737, in St. Philips, Charles Town, South Carolina, Margaret HESSY, born Basel, Switzerland (daughter of Henry Hessy and Elizabeth ______). They settled in what is now Orangeburgh County, SC about 1740.
Their children:
(1) Henry Christopher Rowe baptized 8 Dec 1738 married Anna ______.
(2) Regina Barbara (also called Rachel ) Rowe baptized 27 Apr 1740 1. She married (1) in Orangeburgh, South Carolina about 1758 Andrew
GOVAN. She married (2) William HILL (he died before 11 Apr 1789)
(3) Samuel Jeremiah Rowe born 6 Aug 1744, baptized 15 Aug 17441, married Margaret POU born 1745 SC (daughter of Gavin Pou and
Margaret MURENO
(4) Maria Rowe born 25 Oct 1751, died 19 Feb 1752

Christopher Rowe married (2) 7 June 1771, to Ann, the widow of Colonel John CHEVILLETTE. According to Salley's History, she was the widow Susannah HEPPERDITZEL at the time she married Colonel Chevillette in 1745. His children with wife #2:
(5) Christopher Rowe, Jr. born 1772 died 1773.
(6) Ann Rowe born 9 Mar 1775, married about 1795 James Otis PRINTISS
(7) Capt Donald Christopher Rowe b. 24 Jan 1777 Orangeburgh, SC, married 22 Apr 1807 Ann RICKENBACKER (daughter of Jacob
Rickenbacker2). She was widow of William SABB.

Christopher Rowe died between the date of the making of his will 23 Apr 1787 and 8 February 1788.

RICKENBAKER - Runenberg, Farnsburg, Basel, Switzerland. On April 23, 1735, Heine Riggenbacher of Runeberg with wife and children started down the Rhine to go to Charolina. A report from Farnsburg dated Dec. 18, 1735, shows that Heini Riggenbacher was induced to emigrate by converstations on this topic and especially by Emanuel Giegelmann, his brother in law. Heine Riggenbacher, Heini. Anna Burgi from Bubendorf, his wife, bapt. or born Sept. 29, 1695, married Oct. 8, 1714. Heini, their son, bapt. Febr. 22, 1722. In 1739 Heini Riggenbacher of Runenberg sent a letter to his brother in which he asked for the release of some money and property of his. The
government took great pains to get hold of the letter, but did not settle the business until 1798. Heini Riggenbacher, married Anna Till presumably a daughter of Nicholaus Till. Faust Vol.II, pgs.90-91. *On 18 Sept. 1735 was granted Orangeburgh(SC) Township lot nr.167 and 350 acres of land”.

http://www.borisbrooks.com/genealogy/kbdata/1st_rick.htm, Rickenbachers of Orangeburg, South Carolina shows:
Johanes (aka John Rickenbacher, baptized 19 August 1750, Orangeburg, SC, died between 1810-1820 Orangeburg, SC, married Elizabeth Rowe. Census records indicate that Johannes and Elizabeth may have had as many as four children (one son and ghree daughters). They knew of two, Anne Elizabeth born about 1791, died 1820-21, married Jacob Izlar, Jr.; Mary Elizabeth born about 1804, died 22 October 1884, married Francis Baxter.

Little more is known about Johannes. He (rather than Hans heinrich) was probably the John who served with Camptin Rumph during the Revolutionary War. He is one of the two John Rickenbackers who appear in the census records for 1790, 1800 and 1810. Those census records indicate that his wife was probably born between 1775 and 1785 and that they may had one son and three daughters. The census records suggest that the son and one of the daughters may have died young. Independent family sources (Izlar and Baxter) says tht Johaness’s wife was Elizabeth Rowe and that she of the mother of Ann (Izlar) and Mary (Baxter). Since Ann appears to be amongth the oldest of the children and Mary appears to be the youngest, it’s likely that Elizabeth Rowe was Johannes’s only wife.

Baseline information from Richard Byrd from a document currently in possession of James Izler Byrd, from conversation between James F. Izlar and his father William Henry Izlar: William H. Izlar and Julia, his wife, lived to see their ten children married and settled in life. At the time the information was obtained (13 April 1872) seven children were still alive and Elvira, Benjamin and Adolphus had died. They all had children. It was considered a remarkable fact that in the War Between the States, James, Benjamin, Willie, Lauriston and Adolphus were all volunteers and served in the CSA. They all belonged to Company G, 25th Regiment S.C.V. The 25th was commanded by Coonel Simonton, was part of General Johnson’s famous Brigade. The Brigade served in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia and took part in all important engagements but all five sons survided the war. James, Benjamin and Adolphus were married but the others were not.

Julia’s father, Daniel Pou was the brother of Lewis, John and James Pou. Hester Beatrice Curry Pou’s father was an Englishman, servied in the Revolutionary War, married Frances Allison during the war. She stayed in camp with her husband when stationed around Charleston, SC. Stephen Curry held may positions of honor and trust.

"Ye Stars, which though unseen, yet with me gaze
Upon this loveliest fragment of the earth,
Thou Sun, that kindlest all thy gentlest rays
Above it, as to light a favorite hearth!
Ye Clouds, that in your temples of the west
See nothing brighter than its humblest flowers!
And, you, ye Winds, that on the ocean’s breast
Are kissed to coolness ere you reach its bowers!

Bear witness with me in my song of praise,
And tell the world that, since the world began,
No fairer land has fired a poet’s lays,
Or given a home to man."

WM. VALMORE IZLAR.

"I believe it is the duty of every Confederate whose opportunities were such as to enable him to speak now, with anything like accuracy, to put on record what he knows. He owes this duty not only to himself and his associates, but to truth."

JOHNSON HAGOOD.

This historic sketch of the Edisto Rifles is dedicated to the United Daughters of the Confederacy, knowing full well, that while there lives a true Southern woman, the altar fires will be kept continuously burning bright in memory of the valiant deeds of the Confederate Soldiers. Yea, long, long after the last one has crossed over the river, of that matchless host who wore the gray, and followed the varying fortunes of the Starry Cross till it went down in stainless glory on the plains of Appomattox, will the story of the "Storm Cradled Nation that fell," and its heroic defenders, be ever kept fresh in the minds of future generations, by our glorious and patriotic women of the Southland.
-----------------------------------------------------------
PREFACE

In writing this sketch, it was my intention to avoid, as far as possible, all personal allusions, and confine myself to such facts and incidents as came under my own observation, and within my own knowledge, and at the same time give a clear and concise statement, without amplification or hyperbole.

I find, however, in order that all important events and interesting incidents which go towards making a historic sketch, which I intend this to be, of the Edisto Rifles, be clearly set forth, personal reference cannot be avoided.

I hope, therefore, I may be pardoned for what may appear as being a little egotistic, although literally true.


THE AUTHOR.

May 13, 1908.

Since writing the above General Hagood’s Memoirs have been published, and it is with much pride that I find his narrative of events and mine so closely agreeing.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION

This little work lacks one inestimable advantage,—final revision by its author. Before the manuscript had been given to the printer the accomplished gentleman, ardent Carolinian and brave soldier had passed "the Great Captain for final review," and had been welcomed, as we believe, "on the other side" by Hagood and the Glovers, and O. M. Dantzler, and Keitt, and Dibbles, and Sellers, and Maloney, and Kennerly, and James F. Izlar, and Theodore Kohn, and other officers and comrades whose deeds he had so enthusiastically recorded. Mr. W. V. Izlar died at a hospital in Atlanta.

Before his unexpected death the author knew that his work would be put into enduring form, thanks to the munificence and filial devotion of Mr. August Kohn, of Columbia, whose father had been a gallant soldier of the Edisto Rifles during the entire War for Southern Independence.

The proofs have been read and occasional notes and corrections made by Mr. A. S. Salley, Jr., the accomplished Secretary of the South Carolina Historical Commission, than whom none has a more accurate knowledge of the history of the State, and who knows Orangeburg District as thoroughly as Gilbert White knew "The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne."

In his preface the author pleads that "personal reference could not be avoided" and apparently fears that what he has written may appear "a little egotistic." The reader will put down the book with the sense that the personal element has lent it an additional charm; he tells what he has seen and heard, and of which he has been a part with a directness and evident sincerity that carry conviction. He does not hesitate to criticise Gen. Patton Anderson’s inexplicable failure to co-operate with Hoke and Hagood at the City Point Road, thus rendering abortive a blow which would probably have raised the siege of Petersburg; or General Mahone’s peremptory order to Hagood, based upon mistaken reports of scouts, which resulted in the useless slaughter at Weldon Railroad; or General Bragg’s and General Whiting’s blunders at Fort Fisher, and yet, he is not dogmatic; he tells you that a sergeant in the rear rank cannot fitly judge the movements of great bodies of troops, that sometimes "he cannot see the forest for the trees."

In Mr. Izlar’s opinion the duty of the Edisto Rifles at Battery Wagner "was the most fearful experience of the four years of the war; especially the last three days and nights. No water, no sleep, very little to eat; and all the while fifteen-inch shells were being hurled in broadsides against the fort and the silent and suffering, but faithful garrison, by the powerful armament of the enemy’s fleet. * * * The mangled dead lay thick on every side, and their fast, decaying remains under a hot September sun impregnated the atmosphere with a sickening, noisome odor. * * * All of this, added to the groans of the dying and shrieks of the wounded, was enough to cause the stoutest heart to shudder and blanch the cheeks of the bravest of the brave."

But, the engagement which seems to appeal most strongly to Mr. Izlar was the bloody battle of Weldon Railroad. He held that "this charge of Hagood’s Brigade does not suffer by the comparison" with the charge of the Light Brigade at Balaklava. He submits a table of figures as to both commands, of which the following is a recapitulation:

Engaged.
Loss.

Light Brigade
607
406
=201

Hagood's Brigade
740
448
=292

It will be noted that Lord Cardigan lost about 66 per cent., while Hagood lost 61 per cent.

The author does not conceal his supreme contempt for Generals Sherman and B. F. Butler and for Admiral Porter, but; for General Cox, "a gentleman as well as a soldier," and for many of the rank and file he had great respect. "It is quite a mistaken idea," he says, "that the Yankees were poor soldiers and easily whipped. Any Confederate soldier who met them often in battle will testify that they were hard and tenacious fighters, especially those from the great Northwest!"

After capture he was imprisoned at Point Lookout, with his brother Laurie T. Izlar, as a tentmate. He appears to have made friends with several of the enemy there, and by a clever ruse de guerre outwitted the commandant of the prison, General Brady, and obtained a fine suit of clothing and other necessary articles, from his "uncle," a Southern sympathizer in New York!

In the rolls of the Edisto Rifles, and of the other companies from Orangeburg District, records which will be valued more and more every year, Mr. Izlar has perpetuated in two paragraphs; "Cæsar," "Anthony," "Sam," "Cudjo," "Pierce," "Peter," "Sephas," "Derril," "Wash," "Toney," "Isaac" and "Jim," the names of twelve body-servants of as many gentlemen. "Many of the young members of the Edisto Rifles," he says, "took with them to the army their negro servants, who not only waited on their young masters faithfully, but cooked their meals also. When in Virginia, these servants stayed in the rear with the wagon train, but would bring meals to the front every day. * * * These servants were regularly rationed by the government the same as enlisted men." This detail is interesting, and, so far as I know, unique among the South Carolina company and regimental histories. "Bull Run" Russell, correspondent of the London Times, writing from Charleston, after the bombardment of Fort Sumter by the Confederate and State authorities, makes mention of the many negro body-servants who had accompanied their masters to Charleston: and Russell, or some other correspondent, reported that their function was not only to wait on their masters, but to do any disagreeable work, such as digging trenches, throwing up breast-works, etc. Of course, such roseate ideas of soldier life were soon dispelled. It would be interesting if Mr. Izlar had told how long those Edisto Riflemen found it possible to retain their body-servants; certainly not in the trenches around Petersburg.

Other features of Mr. Izlar’s little book merit special attention; but, the reader must look for them himself.

Possibly the incentive for this work was the advice of his friend and Brigade Commander, General Hagood, who said: "It is the duty of every Confederate whose opportunities were such as to enable him to speak now, with anything like accuracy, to put on record what he knows."

This is not the first, though it is among the best publications of its kind. There have been published numberless pamphlets and newspaper sketches or "histories" of various companies, among which may be mentioned:

Major J. L. Coker’s, Hartsville Light Infantry, Co. G, 9th S. C. Regiment; afterward Co. E, 6th S. C. Regiment.

Darlington Rifles, Co. I, 18th S. C. Regiment.

Company B, 21st S. C. Regiment, by Henry K. DuBose.

Company B, 4th S. C. Palmetto Riflemen (Sharpshooters), by Col. James A. Hoyt. Col. Hoyt’s admirable monograph has been elaborated and largely included in a book by the late Major W. L. Dunlop, of Arkansas, entitled "Lee’s Sharpshooters, or the Forefront of Battle."

Company K, 14th S. C. Regiment, written and published by Augustus D. Tompkins, now of Charlotte, N. C.

Historical Sketch of the Pee-Dee Light Artillery, Army Northern Virginia. By Orderly Sergeant J. W. Brunson. Together with a roll of McIntosh’s Battery Artillery.

Charleston Light Dragoons, by Edward L. Wells, the biographer of Hampton. This is by far the most brilliant and complete history of a company yet published in South Carolina.

There have been published a number of Regimental histories, in pamphlet form, more or less complete, including:

Seventeenth Regiment (Col. McMaster), by Capt. W. H. Edwards.

Tenth S. C. Regiment, by Col. C. Irvine Walker, its last commander.

First Regiment (Regulars) Artillery, Capt. Charles Inglesby.

South Carolina’s Brigade histories include (the earliest) J. F. J. Caldwell’s "History of McGowan’s Brigade."

Hagood’s Brigade, "Memoirs of the War of Secession."

This list does not purport to be complete, but, unfortunately, very few additions can be made to it.

Any one familiar with old-book catalogues, and more especially those who have visited the great libraries in Boston, New York and Chicago, can tell of the thousands of Company and Regimental histories which have been published in the North and West.

Two instances will suffice to make the issue clear.

Two Negro Regiments, both of them mainly recruited in Massachusetts, the 54th and 55th Massachusetts, served most of their time in South Carolina. A fine, elegantly printed volume of 410 pages, Capt. Luis F. Emilio’s History of the 54th Massachusetts, "A Brave Black Regiment," has had two editions!!!

"The Diary of One of the Officers of the 55th Massachusetts," has been printed, for private circulation, years ago. Prof. Burt G. Wilder, emeritus professor of Cornell University, some time surgeon of the 55th Regiment, has been preparing an exhaustive history of that organization for years and it will soon be ready for the press!

In the Book of Mormon we read:

"Now, there were many records kept of the proceedings of this people, * * * but behold a hundreth part of the proceedings of this people; yes, the account of the Lamanites and Nephites and their wars and contentions * * * cannot be contained in this work. But, behold, there are many books and many records of every kind, and they have been chiefly kept by the Nephites."

This provokes the following apposite comment from an eminent Unitarian scholar and clergyman: "There you have the real difficulty in writing a history of the Lamanites. There may be plenty of material, but so long as it was collected by the Nephites it is impossible to get the Lamanitist point of view."

Dora,
Thank you for a very interesting message. I will tentatively add Sarah W. to the IZLAR family. I would add a HOUCK surname page to
my web site if I could obtain some early information. I am forwarding your message to our Orangeburgh e-mail discussion group for possible
comment. Thank you again for the data. Gene Jeffries, 30 Eastgrove Ct., Columbia, SC 29212

Subject: Sarah W. Izlar who married Jeremiah Houck
Date: Sunday, February 22, 1998 11:19 PM
When I found the "Izlar Family of Orangeburgh, South Carolina" page from the Orangeburgh German-Swiss Genealogical Society, I printed it out so I could compare with my Izlar information.
My husband is David Williams Houck, b. at Cordova SC, the son of Maud Williams and Jerry Lewis Houck; Jerry Lewis was the son of Lecter S.
Gibson and Jacob Izlar Houck; Jacob Izlar was the son of Sarah W. Izlar and Jeremiah Houck.
I have not done any serious research on the Izlar name, but I do have a copy of a notice in the Times and Democrat, Nov. 22, 1883 of the death of Mrs. Jeremiah Houck. It mentions that she was a sister of W. H. Izlar. She is buried at Wesley Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery at Cordova. The inscription on the tombstone is "Sacred to the Memory of Sarah W. Houck; Born Dec. 22, 1815; Died Nov. 19, 1883". The newspaper notice would suggest that she is the daughter of Jacob Izlar and Ann Elizabeth Rickenbacker. She could easily be the child between William Henry Izlar, b. 1810 and Eliza Izlar, b. 1822.
Any help you might give to help veryify this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
