Andrew Hallman Family
Andrew Hallman, born 1707, died about 1761, wife named Maria Elizabeth. The petition of Andrew Holman for bounty land was heard 6 March 1749/50. "Lately came from Philadelphia, Capt. Brown, intended to come to this province and unjustly carried to Philadelphia, has a wife and 3 children; wished land in the fork of Broad and Saluda, where he has planted 3 sorts of wheat."
E. B. Hallman, in his 1972 history, "Early Carolina Heilmans (Hallmans- Holmans) 1736- 1800," claims that the family of Andrew Hallman arrived on the Ship Harle, Ralph Harle, Master, at Philadelphia on 1 September 1736. Hallman bases this claim on the fact that no other Andrew Hallman immigrant is found that came into Philadelphia, also on the fact that several German-speaking families, such as John Adam Summer, came down from Philadelphia and told of coming on ships with different captains or ship-master's names than those found in the Pennsylvania records. E. B. Hallman also points out an association of the Hallman and Crims families in Pennsylvania and SC records. Andrew Hallman and Peter Crim, for example, petitioned for bounty grants on the same day. Their grants were near each other and in the vicinity of the present community of Peak.
Andrew Holman was granted 350 acres of land on Crims Creek. Many early plats of the area refer to Crims Creek as "Holman's Creek". In 1767, after the death of Andrew Hallman, a 150 acre part of the bounty grant was sold by John Holman to George Holman, who sold in 1773 to Nicholas Cune (Rosalyn Summer Indenture Collection - Caroliniana Library). John Hallman of this deed was John Wendell Hallman, believed to be a brother of Andrew Hallman.
