Orangeburgh District Migrations

Migration of George ANTALEY

1. George ANTALEY He married unknown.

Notes for George ANTALEY: Census 1790 Orangeburg District, South Carolina. Abraham's descendents in SC, George's in AL, John's in MS and Jacob's in LA. There is a branch of Antleys still in SC who may be descended from John thru a son named Benjamin. Abraham's branch is pretty well documented and Benjamin doesn't fit, nor does he fit with George or Jacob. Benjamin named his son and daughter, John and Catherine. This would fit with the brother John because the Catherine in the 1830 Orangeburg census as head of household is assumed to be his widow. There weren't a lot of Antley's around at that time so much can be assumed without documentation. This is also supported by the church records at Four Hole and Canaan . And this Catherine's obit states she was Rev Joseph's mother. The Antilley family of TX is descended from Abraham. Henry P Antley, son of Abraham, migrated to LA and married a Ms. Wallen. He then went into TX. Henry P. of TX married a Ms. Waller and is the correct age according to census records. Henry was the son of Abraham Antley.

Jacob's widow, Mariah, later migrated to Union Parish with their Antley children and some of her White relatives.
