I did run across a sale of land to Reddick by John Michael Burkhalter Edgefield S.C. That might give us one of the John's middle names. One more note from a book on the Palantine Mennonites.They spelled the name Burckhalter.
There was a Mennonite settlement in the area of Edgefield SC/96th District in the mid 1700's.I will have to find the map with that settlement. Thank you for all your work and research.
