B3a3Joseph Warren Epting (b. 1-2-1854 in Lexington District
per the 1860 census, d. 8-8-1933) married
(1) Mary Mahalie Stoudemayer (b. 11-18-1855, d. 7-2-1880 age 25. Buried Epting-Stoudemayer Cemetery, 3 miles west of Peak, S.C.) [*-1, page 131]She was the daughter of George (b. 4-2-1808, d. 5-14-1888) and Laedicea (Leodicey) Fulmer Stoudemayer (b. 10-21-1816, d. 5-22-1905) of Lexington County and the granddaughter of Salomé Reidlhuber (1793-ca. 1890) who married John Adam Fulmer (1794-1865).[per information sent to me by Ernestine Caldwell from Fulmer Family book.]
Mary Mahalie Stoudemayer was a fun-loving teenager, as indicated by some of her friends’ letters. She wrote in a letter that she might get married between November 18 and Christmas 1876. She did not name the lucky fellow, and as of this writing, I do not have a marriage date for her, so I don’t know whether she was talking about Joseph Warren Epting at that time or not.She did indeed later wed him for they are on the Lexington County 1880 census, household #143 in the Broad River Township.Mary was 24, according to that census, and son George Adam Epting was 2, and Nina Epting was 4 months old.The census was taken on June 5 1880. Mary Mahalie died a month after that and her sister Jane helped raise her baby Nina. (See below.)
Joseph Warren Epting married (2) his cousin Isadora (B2g6) Epting (b. 2-9-1854, d. 1-14-1907.)She was the daughter of Jacob (B.2.g.) and Dorothy (Dolly) Fulmer Epting.Her nicknames were “Icey” and “Dora.”She died when her only son Jacob Dewey Epting was nine years old.She and Joseph Warren are both buried in Rosemont Cemetery, Section B, Row 4. [*-2, page 29]
The mother of Joseph Warren, Mary Ann Catherine Epting’s name was on the property as owner, but Jacob Epting, her husband, also signed the deed on Jan. 8, 1883, when she sold 50 acres for $415.00 to her son Joseph Warren Epting in Lex. Co. adjoining, on the north border, the estate of the Summers, on the southeast border by Mary Ann Catherine Epting, and on the south by John D. Shealy and on the west border by the Farrs. The deed was recorded Feb. 9, 1883 and actually delivered Oct. 20, 1890. [Lex. Deed Book “DD” page 185]
Jacob L. and Georgianna Dominick and George M. and Elizabeth F. Stuck sold 62 ½ acres for $700.00 to Joseph Warren Epting in Lex. Co. known as the “Derrick Place” in 1885.The land was adj. Eli Bowers, Henry Miller and “lately Hartman, now Farr.”The witnesses were L.P. Stoudemire and W.S. Monteith. [Lex. DB “EE” page 192.]
Mary Ann and her son Joseph Warren Epting both deeded land adjoining each other in 1887 to the Columbia, Newberry and Laurens Railroad Company.[Lex. Deed book “HH” pages 619 and 620.]
Joseph Warren Epting sold his land east of Newberry and moved west of Newberry.He lived in Chappels, S.C. with his son Dewey, and also visited frequently in the home of his son George Adam Epting who lived about 5 miles north west of Newberry, S.C.Joseph Warren’s daughter Nina was also visited frequently by her father, and all of his grandchildren remember him fondly.He rode the train from one location to the other, and always provided little handfuls of candy for the grandchildren.
B3a3aGeorge Adam Epting (b. 8-18-1878, d. 11-
23-1933 in a train-truck accident.) Married Eula Elizabeth Long (b. 1-24-1880, d. 10-7-1933) whose parents Luther Melanchthon Long (b. 8-24-1848, d. 2-6-1931 CSA) and Anna Catherine Schumpert Long (b. 10-7-1851, d. 5-6-1927) lived on the land adjoining theirs.All are buried in Rosemont Cemetery, Newberry, S.C. [*-2, pages 20 and 29]
George Adam Epting was a good farmer and a smart man, teaching himself many of the subjects he missed by not getting to finish high school.He and his dad bought and sold land in Newberry County, and George Adam operated a little country store on his “home place” up until his death.He wanted all of his children to go to college if they chose to.
George Adam Epting, his wife, and his father Joseph Warren Epting all died within 3 months time in 1933.
