John Wendall Hallman Family

John Wendel Hallman is believed to have been a brother of Andrew Hallman, who petitioned for bounty grant on Crims Creek in 1749. John Wendel Hallman was born about 1710 and was alive in 1808. He married more than once, and his wife in 1785 and at the time of his death, was named Christena.

John Wendel Hallman is shown on early Crims Creek plats as owning the bounty grant of Francis Helo. In March 1763, John Holman obtained memorial for land on Crims Creek that had been originally granted in 1751 to Francis Helo and by him sold to Andrew Holman and by him sold by L and R of 9 and 10 May 1757 to the Memorialist (John Wendle Hallman).  John Wendel Hallman may have moved to the Camping Creek area as in 1768, John Holman paid quit rents on the 200 acre grant of Philip Henning on Camping Creek Newberry deeds reveal that he sold the south half of the Henning grant in 1799 to Frederick Pasenger (Newberry Deeds K-44). In 1767, John Wendel Holman obtained a 250 acre land grant on Big Creek.   In 1785, he and wife, Christina, sold a part of the tract on Big Creek  to John Lester (Newberry Deeds A-44).

  According to David Ramsay's "History of South Carolina from Its First Settlement in 1670 to the Year 1808, " John Wendel Hallman at age 98 in 1808 was said to be among the oldest citizens of the state.   John Wendel Hallman moved south of the Saluda before 1790 and settled in Lexington County just inside the old Orangeburgh/Edgefield District line. John and Christian Swygert were administrators of the estate of John Wendel Holman.  In 1829, a 235 acre tract on Whetstone branch of Saluda, being part of 568 acres run out 26 August 1794 for John W. Hallman, deceased., was deeded to Christenah Hollman by administrators of the estate of John Wendel Holman (Lexington Deeds P-728). This land was described as left over from the estate of John Wendle Holman and sold at public auction to Christenah Holman.

  The following reconstruction of the family of John Wendel Hallman is taken from "Early Carolina Heilmans (Hallmans-Holmans) 1736-1800," by E. B. Hallman (1972). Hallman's reconstruction is highly speculative and he explained at the time that his genealogy of the family was based on study of original documents and correspondence with many descendants of the family. Hallman expressed a desire for future researchers to further the study of this family.
