Johann Conrad Hungerbieler, corupted to Hungerpiller, came to SC on the ship Cunlif and settled in the Four Holes Swamp area of Orangeburgh. John Jacob H. came over on the same ship. Johann's wife was Maria Elisabeth [Imfinger] a map I have of lands in the area around 1790 show the land of both Johann and john Jacob. 1818 tax list has a John,Jacob,David, Mary. 1811 voter list has John and Jacob. Genealogical Society of Orangeburgh shows the first John Jacob being born in Germany in 1726 and married to Christina Barbara--- In 1752 on the ship Cunlif to SC. Children of the 1st John Jacob are Gertrude 1747,Barbara 1749, Bernhard David 1749, Hans Barnard 1755,
Anna 1759. No Rosanna listed. Records show A John Jacob born in Sept. 1757 to Johann Conrad and Maria Hungerpiller. He must have named him after his brother. 1810 US census lists Conrad, Jacob,John and David. All had at least one female living with them. 1830 census had David jr.,David sr.,John. In 1790 census there were 4 adult Hungerpillers. Conrad,David,Jacob and John. Children of Johann Conrad and Maria H. were mary 1747,Elizabeth 1749, Zibilla C. 1753, Cathartina 1755 and one male, John Jacob 1757. Thomas ended up in Blount and Coosa and Marshall County, Al. There also is a Christiana Hunkapiller who went to Al. from Orangebugh, born 1783 and an Elizabeth born 1785. It seems the ones who came to Al. became Hunkapillers from Hungerpillers. Yes I have found it spelled 8 or 10 different ways also. Most were mistakes as the same people would be different on each record. Based on what we know we believe the 2nd John Jacob was the father of Thomas, our forefather who went to Al. I have more but out of time.
