http://www/xs4all.nl/~sail/ is the site maintained by Joop Giesendanner. Two of his Orangeburg ancestors were ministers and maintained basic recording of their work about the area. When on site go to "Book of Records, Orangeburg, SC (1738-1761)". You will find beginnings of the Dorchester Co. Hussey family listed as Hessi, Hessey, and Hessij.

These records were again translated within the last month while Joop was in the states on an extended visit. Updates should begin to be posted soo. Some errors were discovered.

The Hussey family of Dorchester County had its beginnings not in Orangeburg District, SC, but in Queen Anne's County, St. Luke Parish, Church Hill, Maryland before 1700. There is not connection with the Hessey family of Orangeburg and the Hussey family of Colleton or present day Dorchester County. Edward Hussey first settled in the Indian Fields area of St. George, SC, ca. 1804. He was the son of Simeon Hussey and Elizabeth Edwards of Onslow County, NC. He was perhaps the oldest of several children including a brother named Shields Hussey. Simeon Hussey was the son of Michael Hussey and Margaret Shields of Queen Anne's County, Maryland.
Michael Hussey was the son of another Michael Hussey also of that area. Simeon Hussey of Onslow County had a brother, Edward Hussey, who died ca. 1781. He left at least 3 known minor children and a widow Mary Hussey. Sons Bryan Hussey was raised by an Edmondson family, John E. Hussey by a Jarman family and Margaret was most probably raised by her mother. Both Margaret and Bryan Hussey eventually migrated to Charleston, SC, ca. 1800. Bryan Hussey married Susanna Swain and Margaret Hussey married David Kettleband.
Bryan Hussey had a very large family there. One of his sons, Shields E. Hussey, fought in the Mexican War. One of his daughters, Mary S. Hussey, married Galloway Montieth.
One of thier children was named Walter Shields Montieth.
Edward of Colleton County had at least four known children,
Elizabeth Hussey who married John Grimes and then married William Washington Rigby. One of Elizabeth's sons was Shields Rigby. One of her daughters married Captain William Capers Griffith. They named one of there children Shields Griffith. Another known child of Edward Hussey was Edward Grossman Hussey who married a Sarah Griffith. Yet another son was Shields Lambright Hussey who never married, but became the Treasurer of the state of MS in the late 1850's. The other known son, Simeon Hussey, born about 1800,
married Ann C. Moorer, daughter of John Reddick Moorer, Jr. and Anna Elizabeth Strobel, daughter of Albert Strobel and Elizabeth Bowman. Simeon and Ann had four known children, Edward L. Hussey who married Caroline Wimberly, daughter of Isaac Wimberly; John M. Hussey who married Mary Ann C. Strobel, granddaughter of Albert Strobel and Elizabeth Bowman; Shields L. Hussey who died in the late 1850's and never married; and Simeon Albert Hussey who married Love Wimberly, sister of Caroline Wimberly. Simeon is not included in most writings about this family as he remarried after the Civil War and settled in Alachua, Florida. Simeon would have a son named Edward Lambright Hussey and a son named Lewis Shields Hussey. Edward L. Hussey who married Caroline Wimberly also had a son Shields Emanuel Hussey.
In turn, he had a son named Shields Hussey. Edward Grossman Hussey, who married Sarah Griffith also migrated to MS with his brother, Shields Lambright Hussey. One of Edward Grossman's children was named Shields Lambright Hussey and, again in turn, his son was named Shields Lambright Hussey as well. Another of Edward Grossman Hussey's children named thier child, Shields Owen Hussey, etc, etc. As these Hussey family groups have been easily tracked based on this naming tradition, little is known about the wife(s) of Edward Hussey who settled in the Indian Fields area of Colleton County ca. 1804. We know that he was a road commissioner in 1819, Free School commissioner by April 1814 having received $75 for the Indian Fields school. He had lands that were bounded by Traxler and Pendarvis, a vacant track of land and the Indian Fields Swamp. He or his son Edward Grossman was a Postmaster in St. George as were the Moorers and Rigbys, etc. But, who was the wife of Edward Hussey by 1804????

John M. Hussey, born 1835, died July 13, 1863 near Gettysburg, Pa., after being "shot through the body", married Mary Ann C. Strobel, not Elizabeth, as David Gavin states. David Gavin is simply incorrect on this point.

Mary Ann C. Strobel was the daughter of David Strobel, born between 1803 and 1805, and Sarah Spell, born December 25, 1818. Elizabeth Barbary Strobel was the sister of Mary Ann C. Strobel, born May 5, 1840. Elizabeth, born June 7, 1838, never married and died on December 12, 1923 at the home of her sister, Georgianna A. Strobel Beagling, born March 7, 1845, all of St. George, SC.

John Hussey and Mary Ann C. Strobel had two children. Annie E. Hussey, born August 1, 1858, died November 23, 1893 just less than a month after having her 5th daughter, Annie Laura. Annie E. Hussey married David Adolph Reeves, born, August 13, 1850, son of Silas Reeves and Rachael Aaron. John W. Hussey was born in 1861 and was last known to be living with his uncle, Jonas Durant Strobel, born July 28, 1842, in Graniteville, Aiken County, in 1880, Jonas being the brother of the Strobel sisters above. John M. Hussey and Jonas Durant Strobel both served with the 1st SC Cav.

Mary Ann C. Strobel Hussey lived with her daughter, Annie and her husband David Reeves at least until the Annie's death in 1893. Mary was known as "big moma" in the Reeves household not for her size but because she was the oldest family member. Mary died May 2, 1897.

All of the Strobel sisters, Elizabeth, Mary, and Georgianna Strobel are buried together with their mother, Sarah and Mary's daughter, Annie, in the St. George Baptist Church Cemetery. Jonas Durant Strobel died February 15, 1924 and is buried in Graniteville, SC.

On the death of Shields Hussey. It is remotely possible that David Gavin is in error here as well as there was a Shields Rigby who died about that time. Shields Rigby, born ca. 1850, was the child of Elizabeth Hussey and William Washington Rigby. There was another Hussey mentioned in the diary of David Gavin who may have in fact been the 4th Hussey brother, child of Simeon Hussey and Ann C. Moorer. Gavin mentions a Wilie Hussey, who may indeed be the Hussey who died in Richmond, Va. near the end of the War while serving with the 9th and 11th consolidated SC Inf. out of St. George, SC. This Wilie Hussey was said to be the brother in law to a David Kizer in Gavin's diary.
However, there is simply not enough supportive evidence to make any clear identifications or conclusions at this time.

I cannot account for the error in David Gavin's diary. I know that Gavin states that John M. Hussey was married to Elizabeth Strobel, but that is not the case as he was the husband of Elizabeth's sister, Mary Ann C. Strobel. There is more that enough substantial proof of this. Elizabeth Strobel never married.

There are several sources for Mary being the wife of John Hussey. Jesse Reeves Patrick, a descendant of John Hussey, gave an oral history to her daughter Lilly Mae Patrick who passed it to her daughter, Rebecca Reeves Halpin. Rebecca Reeves Halpin has since passed this information to me. There are the obvious census records to help support that family history. Mary is buried next to her daughter, Annie Hussey Reeves, and her mother Sarah A. Spell Strobel at the Baptist Church Cemetery in St. George, SC.

Annie Hussey Reeves was my great grandmother, Mary and John Hussey, my great great grandparents and Sarah A. Spell and David Strobel, my great great great grandparents. I am a descendant through Annie's daughter, Annie Laura Reeves, younger sister of Jesse Reeves.

Yes, Mary Ann C. Strobel was related to Maj. Daniel Strobel. Mary's father, David Strobel was the son of Albert Strobel, brother of Maj. Daniel Strobel. John Hussey was also related by birth as his mother was the daughter of Ann Elizabeth Strobel, daughter of Albert Strobel and Elizabeth Bowman. David Gavin was also related to the wife of Maj. Daniel Strobel, Elizabeth Aberly, daughter of Hans Aberly and Anna Maria Long. I believe that it was David's brother, Charles Gavin, that was living in Alachua County, Florida in the 1850's in very close proxity to the grandsons of Maj. Daniel Strobel, Jacob and Daniel V. Strobel, children of Daniel Strobel, Jr. and unknown first wife.

The Shields L. Hussey that migrated to MS was the son of Edward Hussey, born about 1765 in either Northampton County or Onslow County, NC. Shields and a brother, Edward Grossman Hussey migrated there in the 1830's. There was a sister, Elizabeth Hussey and brother Simeon Hussey that remained in SC. Elizabeth married John Grimes and then William Washington Rigby. Simeon married Ann C. Moorer.

John M. Hussey, Edward L. Hussey, Shields Hussey, and Simeon Albert Hussey were the four known sons of Simeon and Ann. It was Shields Lambright Hussey that was in MS by 1840 and the state treasurer by 1856. After the War, Shields Lambright Hussey practiced law and apparently never married, but was still living by the 1880 census. His brother Edward Grossman Hussey, who married Sarah Griffith, daughter of William Griffith and Barbara Harlow, died in 1853 "in his 40th year of life". There is a mention in the diary of David Gavin of his visit with his friends S. L. and E. G. Hussey in MS. Gavin also mentions the passing of Simeon Hussey in about 1840 and that he was a school mate.

How do you account for the error of the wife of John M. Hussey? Were Maj. Daniel and Elizabeth Strobel related to Mary Ann C. Strobel Hussey?

Did Shields Hussey relocate to MS during David Gavin's life time?

The St. George Baptist Church Cemetery or UDC Cemetery is located just off I-95 in St. George, SC, near the Bilton Ford Dealership. My understanding is that this cemetery was never transcribed and placed on the list at this site. There are plans to make a transcription as I have been told.

This cemetery has not yet been documented as I have discovered. Please get in touch by e-mail as I am very interested in your Reeves and Strobel connections. I am a descendant of both families.
