CARWILEs

Carwile is a very uncommon name. It has been said that all of them in the U.S. are related. True or not, my GGrandmother was one and lived near Abbeville, SC. Parts of the family migrated to Alabama and then to Texas. A really fine genealogy of the Carwiles was done in 1976 but how you could get a copy of it is quite unknown. The Abbeville Public Library has a copy. There were three brothers who came to the Virginia Colony in 1744. One of them was Zacariah CARWILE and one of the others returned to Wales. Zack fought in the Revolution and was recorded at the Battle of Kings Mountain. His petition for a veteran's pension is on file. Good reading. He was an avid anti-Tory and had a colorful history. After the Revolution he settled at Levelland in South Carolina (why there is a good story too) and was the father of a bunch of children. He traveled with a CallahaM and 3 of his children married 3 of the Callaham's. Now how he is connected with the John Carwile, I have no idea but I am reasonably sure that they are related. Let me know if you want any more of my notes. They were rather tangential for me, interesting as they are.
