William Halbert's father, Joel Halbert, came from Wales and settled in Virginia. Whom he married is unknown, a Virginia girl certainly, as tradition makes this William Halbert eigth in descent from the well known Indian maiden "Pocahontas" and also related to the Randolphs of Virginia.
William was born in Virginia. In 1768 he married Elizabeth Hill and in 1786 they moved to Pendleton, settling on the Saluda River. William Halbert died in 1808, leaving to his wife and to each of his children 200 acres of land and several negros. He was a staunch Whig, and served in the army of Virginia.
After coming to South Carolina he became a man of prominence in his community; served as justice of the peace for many years. He was about five feet nine inches in height, of stout build, and had a red beard.
His children were Joel, Martha, John, Enos, Arthur, James, Susannah, Frances, William Joshua, Elizabeth, Mary and Lucinda. Most of these moved west, and today there are thousands of Halberts in Mississippi, Indiana, and other western states, but in South Carolina there is not one of the name. Joel married Mary Lindsey and went to Indiana in 1819. His daughter Sarah, married Moses Welborn of Anderson County, SC. Another, Ruth, married Amos Acker, youngest son of Peter Acker, Sr. and Jane Southerland.
