Does anyones know how the Fullenwiders (most of which are Widers now) first happened into South Carolina? My family originates from Richland County, SC around Columbia and Eastover. We are a tall family of Fullenwiders and have been told that this is a trait our ancestors have.
Our Fullenwider ancestor is Jacob Fullenwider. My family often repeated a story of two brothers who traveled from Germany. If anyone has any information on him or the Fullenwider origin in SC I would be grateful. Jacob Fullenwider would either be the grandfather or father of our Jacob (Fullenwider) Wider, Jr born in 1851 in Richland County SC. Thanks.
