Catherina 'Catherine' SWITTENBERG, 1756-1800, was daughter of German Immigrant John Henry SWITTENBERG, 1736-1800, and of his wife, Christiana JESEREL; she is buried Frederick Schumpert Family Cemetery, Prsperity, Newberry County, South Carolina.

Johannes SWITTENBERG, 1736-1800, came to South Carolina as a single person in 1752. He did not petition for land until after he had married and had a child. His petition for bounty was read at the meeting of 1 February 1754, "John the Ship Caledonia from Rotterdam... he is free having paid his freight ..hath Since his arrival married and has one child...came down to Town twice to get a warrant but was not at the Proper time" (Council Journal 22:82). His bounty grant of 150 acres, in the name of John SCHECHENBURGH, was on headwaters of Bear Creek near the town of Little Mountain.

A 100 acre tract on north side Broad River was granted 2 February 1773 to John SWITTENBURGH and by he and wife, Christiana, sold by Lease and Release 7 and 8 February 1773, to Eleazer MOBLEY Memorials 13:288). It is thought that John Swittenburg married Christiana JESEREL who also came to America as a single person and, like John SWITTENBERG on the Caledonia. Her 50 acre bounty survey, in the name of Christian JOISCESEL, was on headwaters of Crims Creek northwest of the town of Little Mountain.

When St. John's Lutheran Church land was surveyed in 1763, the adjacent land grant of Margaret KENNER [KINARD] was shown as land of John SWITTENBERG (Colonial Plats 8:436). John SWITTENBERG, the immigrant, is said to have lived on this land.

After the American Revolutionary War, John SWIGTENBURGH was compensated on 4 October 1785 for a mare lost in Service (Stub Indent 904). On 26 January 1786, Mr. John SWEDENBERRY was compensated for rations and forage supplied to Militia in 1781 (Stub Indent 1613).

John SWIGTENBERGH, Eberhart SWEIGTENBERG, and Wm SWIGTWENBERG were all signers for incorporation of St. John's [Lutheran] Church, Pomaria (1794).
