I am researching William Fertick, b. abt 1816, of Orangeburg county in South Carolina. I believe William was the son of George Furtick and Mary Magdalene Zachael of Lexington County, SC.
William married Elizabeth Spigener, b. abt. 1820, in SC on Mar. 9, 1837. They had five sons who all served in the Civil War. Only one of the sons, John, b. 1840, survived. The other four sons George, b. 1838,Charles, b. 1842,Boyd, b. 1844, and Joseph, b. 1848, all died of injuries or illness sustained while serving in the Confederate Army.
William had serveral brothers and sisters. Most of them lived in Lexington Co., SC. His oldest brother was my ancestor, Lewis Fertic, who left SC in the early 1840's and moved to Florida.
I would love to hear from anyone who might be researching the Fertick/Furtick/Fertic family and will be happy to share what info that I have collected.
