My branch of the family has the beginning as a young family came from Germany, by way of Switzerland. There was a young husband, wife and male child. The family landed in Charleston just in time for an epidemic (yellow fever possibly). It killed the parents and the child was raised by the Wolf/Wolfe family where the boy later married one of the Wolf/Wolfe daughters. They had the three sons. Where the Columbia ones came from is the son who settled in Blaney/Elgin area. There are Easlers buried in the local cemetery in that area.
