Hi Sandra: I'm not sure if we're of the same line of bernhards (or bernhardts). i am descended from henry bernhard who in c. 1818 married frances stringfellow dau. of henry stringfellow who was living in s.c. at the time, then moved to alabama and helped establish the city of marion in perry county. unfortunately he died shortly after moving to ala -- in 1822. i know rev. christian eberhardt bernhardt had a son henry and i think it's about the same time and would be roughly the same age, but don't know if this is the same one. do you know if the henry in your line married a stringfellow? i also know there was a henry bernhard who was a census taker in south carolina for either the 1810 or 1820 census.
