to Perry Goss Info Wynell Simpson. to answer your question of whether Tobias Wilhelm was ever in SC. Tobias was born in 1760 and a few days later christianed in New York City. From the time 1760 to 1804 his travels are undocumented. He was in TN in 1804 and the source you us of pg. 241 is probably the same source of the events of a slave you mention that I am pasting as a brief abstract of my ancestor Tobias Wilhelm. from the 3 messages about Tobias posted on this forum I deduce you are not researching the Wilhelm family.
