Descendants of John Ditmore and Eliza Hendrickson


First Generation  Next

1. Eliza HENDRICKSON, daughter of J. Baetgin HEINRICHSEN and Anna SCHREIKARDT(IN), was born between 1790 and 1800 in Charleston, South Carolina.1

Eliza married John DITMORE 1 on 9 April 1809 in Hampstead, South Carolina. John was born between 1770 and 1780 in South Carolina2 and died about 1831 in Athens, McMinn County, Tennessee.

General Notes: John DITMORE married Eliza HENDRICKSON/HEINRICHSEN, daughter of J. HEINRICHSEN and Anna SCHREIKARDT(IN). John is age 50-60 in the 1830 census, indicating his birth between 1770 and 1780. He is thought to be related to Albert DETMAR of Charleston, South Carolina, perhaps a grandson?

Albert DITMER lives at 23 Meeting Street in Charleston in 1750. A John DITMORE is on Judgement Rolls from 1770 to 1773.; Albert's son? A John DITMORE resides on Meeting Street in 1810 and on the 1814 Judgement Rolls, son of John, 1770-73 records, and grandson of Albert?

The DITMORE House - Meeting Street, Charleston, South Carolina:
[From: The Ditmore Center,]
* Albert Ditmore home at 23 Meeting Street. Built circa 1750, this three and 1/2 story single house is believed to have been built by Albert Detmar/Ditmere or Ditmore. Relationship unknown. Perhaps an ancestor or relation of our John.
* Betje Heinrichson, Eliza's father, owned a home on Meeting Street. 1806 and 1807 editions of the City Directories for Charleston, S. C., shows him living on W. Meeting St. Road. By 1809 he had moved to Hampstead, but by the time he wrote his Will in 1818 he was back living on Meeting Street. Address unknown. (Note - he lived 6 dwellings away from John Ditmore on Meeting Street in 1810.)
* John Ditmore was listed as living on Meeting Street in the 1810 Census, and the Census shows the Ditmores living 6 dwellings away from J. Baetgin "Betje" Heinrichson (Eliza Hendrickson Ditmore's father). Does not give address number - but someone might be able to trace this information while in Charleston. We know that the Ditmore's and Heinrichson/Hendrickson families were supposed to have lived in the St. Philip's Parish section of Charleston, so this might help narrow down the location. The area they lived was also sometimes referred to as the Charleston Neck section.
