The Welborn Family of South Carolina

This information is transcribed from a notebook of genealogical information
handwritten in a leather covered notebook by James Marion Pickel.

"These notes are written by James Marion Pickel, son of James Elbert Pickel, grandson of William Pickel and Elizabeth Wilson Pickel and great-grandson of Jacob Pickel, the German. Or to put it differently James Marion Pickel was the son of James Elbert Pickel who was the son of William Pickel, the latter being the son of Jacob Pickel, the German.

James Marion Pickel's mother (born Marion Welborn) was the first and only wife of J.E. Pickel. She was a daughter of Moses Welborn and Sarah (born Holbert) his wife, Moses being a son of Col. James Welborn who, the traditions of the family say, came from Wales to Virginia and thence to South Carolina soon after the Revolutionary War.

All the statements made in this book were received by me (I change from the third and write in the first person) from my father and mother mainly and from my mother's first cousin, A. F. Welborn (Albert Frank). But I also knew well and often saw and visited my father's parents and my mother's mother (my mother's father died long before my birth.) .....

The Welborn Family of South Carolina

The following [attached] notes were written in 1890. My mother died in Sept. or Oct. (the former I think) of that year. I was on a visit to her and my father just before her death. She died suddenly on the night of the morning on which I left her on my return to college duties in Florida. I had frequently questioned her regarding her ancestors. These notes must have been written during or soon after this visit, when I had doubtless talked the subject over with her. [J.M. Pickel, June 18th, 1899"
