In 1786, William, Sr. HALBERT, age 42 and family moved from
Caroline Co., VA. and settled on the "Saludia River" in the
old Pendleton Dist, (present-day Anderson Co.) SC.

William Halbert Jr. was granted 1292 acres in Laurens Dist., SC. on Durbin's Creek, a branch of the Enroee River. Being unsuccessful in farming and milling, he sold his property in SC. and took up residence for a short time in Ga.
After living in Ga. for only a couple of years, he and all of his children, except Harriet and Hannah moved to Mo. near William's older brother James Ira Halbert Sr. in Meremac Twp., Crawford Co., Mo. At this time nothing further is known about the families of either of his wives, but there is strong evidence that Elizabeth was related to the Peter Bowen
family of SC. Several Halbert members married into this family and his descendants are found
almost everwhere the Halberts settled.
