When Mathias Wessinger was 6 years old, he and his family came to America from Germany. They arrived at Charles Town in 1752. His family home and land was in the High Hill Creek section of Lexington County which is now under Lake Murray. He married Lydia Anna Smith (Schmidt) on February 10, 1771. They are both buried in the Wessinger Cemetery which was on his land.

A gravestone was placed in Bethel Lutheran Church Cemetery in White Rock in memory of some of the people buried in the cemeteries under Lake Murray.
