Hi I certainly know Franz Ulm as I am a direct descendant of him. He came from Germany (Rhine-Palatine) and went to England in 1764 as a refugee durig the Seven Years War. Apparantly his parents died enroute or while in London. George III commissioned the Board of Trade to settle, at His expense, these German refugees in America. Franz Ulm, then roughly 10, left England in October 1764 and landed at Charleston SC Christmas Eve, 1764. He, along with the entire company of Germans, settle at Hard Labour Creek, Edgefield County, SC. See History of the Lutheran Church in SC signed JOHN DEAN, Florence SC
