Re: Samuel Oswald b.circa1799 S.C.
We must be in the same boat. Levi H. Oswalt moved to Covington Co. Ala. after his marriage to Martha Eddins. Then up to Wilcox Co. Alabama. They had about 9 boys and 1 girl. They changed name to Oswald some where along the way. They must be related to Samuel in some way. There were not that many Oswald's in Lexington at that time. Levi and Martha had these children; James b1831 SC, George b1836 Al., Jesse Daniel, Samson, Elbert, Benjamin, William, Samuel, Levi jr., and Ellen. I also have Merrin, Hyrem, Famus as being children but no records on them, they could have died as children. They left some records but not Levi's parents or Bro. or Sisters. That makes things hard to trace after 200 years. Do any of these names match Samuel's children, they seem to follow family names a lot.
