Orangeburgh Migrations - Alabama

Not long after the Creek War ended and the defeated Indians were neutralized, a number of families - Spigeners, Whetstones, Zeiglers and Stoudenmires followed the Federal Road into the Alabama Territory.

According to the Descendants of the Dutch Bend Pioneers, the early settlers of Dutch Bend (Autauga County) Alabama came around 1819-1820. The families who departed Orangeburgh District, SC traveled on a wagon train with an army escort. They came through Georgia near what is now Augusta, then on to Macon, thence west to the area that is south of Autaugaville, AL and is known as Dutch Bend.

There were 69 wagons in the wagon train. A nucleus of kin moved to the Dutch Bend area of the Alabama River. With Reverend Henry WHETSTONE and his wife, Elizabeth HOUSER, Sophia STOUDENMIRE (b. 1791), John George STOUDENMIRE and wife, Mary Magdalene Whetstone STOUDENMIRE, John Rudolph MURPH and wife Jane STOUDENMIRE. In a letter written by Lewis HOUSER (b. 1788) in the 1820's, he mentions the proximity of many of these Orangeburgh families.
