Revolutionary War Patriot.

JOHANN"john" PETER SANDEL was baptized 21 Sep 1721 in Schriesheim, Baden, Germany. He was the son of MICHEL SANDEL and ANNA ELIZABETHA RUF[11]. He married (1)CATHARINA ELIZABETHA STOCKMAN on 19 Jan 1751. She died 1752-1753. He married (2)MAGDALENE UNKNOWN abt. 1753

Johann Peter Sandel. departed from Schriesham, Germany to immigrate to the Carolina Territories in the fall of 1752[1]. He sailed from Rotterdam aboard the brigantine John and Mary, captained by Mr. Robinson. He arrived in the port of Charles Towne during the last week of November[4]. Peter and his wife petitioned for a grant of 100 acres on 7 Feb 1753[5]. This was probably Johann Peter's second wife. No child was mentioned in the petition. We assume that Johann Peter's first wife and his child Johann Martin died during the journey and that he married his second wife either on board ship or immediately after arrival in South Carolina.

John Peter Sandel was born c 1723;he was in the Charleston, South Carolina harbor December 11, 1752. The ship had sailed from Rotterdam,with a stop in Cowes,England prior to sailing for America. John Peter Sandel had his wife Magdalena with him and one child. This family settled in what was theOrangeburg District, of South Carolina; this was a large area, and not Orangeburg County, as it exists today. John Peter Sandel died c 1783; his burial place or that of his family is not known; however, many families buried their loved ones on their plantations, or near their homes. We are fortunate in that this family were members of Rev. John Gissendanner's church in early Orangeburg, and records have survived and are produced in The History of Orangeburg County, South Carolina, by A.S. Salley. This volume is in many libraries and even available for sale in many states today. In this book, we are able to ascertain their children. Children born to this couple were: John Peter II born in 1752; George Henry born in 1755;Elizabeth born in 1758; Catharina Margaret born 1759; these four are in the book named above and were christened by Rev. John Gissendanner. The next four children Anna Maria born 1763; Maria Elizabeth born 1766; Regina born 1768 and Maria Magdalene born 1770; were all christened at St. John's Lutheran Church in Charleston,South Carolina and records of these christenings were found in microfilm held by the Church of Latter Day Saints in Utah. The couple ,John Peter Sandel and his wife Magdalene, were recipients of fifty acres of land, when they arrived in South Carolina, but eventually had about 10,000 acres of land awarded to them in grants. During the American Revolution ,they were able to give large amounts of forage for the troops, which later they were paid for, by the English government. England was in control of this area for most of their lives there. Though membership has been established in the Daughters of the American Revolution, the two sons: John Peter II and George Henry Sandel were Loyalists and served in this capacity during the Revolution. Loyalists of course were those persons, who continued to have allegiance to England. Some of the finer more honorable and distinguished persons did bear the name of Loyalists. Since they lost in the war, many had their land confiscated. John Peter II was killed during the War and money was paid his widow Susan, afterwards. George Henry Sandel left South Carolina and moved to Pike County, Mississippi, which was at that time, still in Amite County-the mother of many southeastern counties of Mississippi. George Henry Sandel was married to Catherine Nobles and their daughter Elizabeth married John Felder, son of Peter Felder, a Revolutionary Soldier; John Felder distinguished himself, as a very devout and consecrated man, and the John Felder Methodist Campground and Camp meeting held annually at Summit, Mississippi is still active and named in his honor.
