Re: William DANTZLER, Orangeburg SC
In Response To: Re: Information on names below ()

I see several listings for this name in Orangeburg (most are white) - but since you indicated that he was born early 1800's - here is the oldest, the others are all children:

Name: Wm. DANTZLER
Age: 56
Estimated birth year:
Birthplace: South Carolina
Occupation: Farmer
Relation: Self
Home in 1880: Zion, Orangeburg, South Carolina
Marital status: Married
Race: Black
Gender: Male
Head of household: Wm. DANTZLER
Father's birthplace: SC
Mother's birthplace: SC

The age above may not be correct - it is listed in parenthesis on census for some reason.

wife is listed as Delia 55
niece Caroline 15

The only older William in 1870 is:

DANTZLER, WILLIAM (1870 U.S. Census)
SOUTH CAROLINA , ORANGEBURG, PROVIDENCE TWP
Age: 62, Male, Race: BLACK, Born: SC
Series: M593 Roll: 1506 Page: 330

in household are

Louisa 28
Adam 9
Gabriel 7
Wilson 1

The 1870 census does not list relationships - so the household members could be children, grandchildren or non-relatives.

The 1900 census lists 3 black William Dantzler's in Orangeburg but one has a daughter named Leila:

DANTZLER, WILLIAM (1900 U.S. Census)
SOUTH CAROLINA , ORANGEBURG, GOODBYS TWP
Age: 23, Male, Race: BLACK, Born: SC
Series: T623 Roll: 1538 Page: 207

wife Eliza 24
son Loyd 6
son Mannie (?) 4
daughter Leila 3
