Barbara Jenkins WE ALL HAVE THEM Here is some information we have uncovered about ours. Levi Haltiwanger, born in South Carolina's Edgefield County in 1819, was the son of emigrants from the Black Forest region of Germany. Levi and his wife, Melvina Attaway Haltiwanger, migrated to Florida with nine other families of German descent in 1851 @ They settled in Columbia County Fla. They had nine children. John Elmore, born Oct. 1, 1841, Ellen, born Dec. 19, 1843. Oliver, born Dec. 4, 1845. ldonia, born March 23, 1847. David P. born Oct. 1, 1850. O.T. born, Dec. 1, 1852. He died, Nov. 1853. Sarah Alia, born, Sept. 23,1854. William T. born, Aug. 6, 1857@ T2bitha Catherine, born, Mar, 7, 1660. The families from South Carolina were all of the Lutheran faith. Since this denomination did not exist in Florida, these people held their prayer services in homes of various members. These migrants were primarily "earth people" they earned their livelihoods by farming. By 1859 the group felt that they needed religious stability so they organized what became the Bethlehem Lutheran Church. This church the oldest Lutheran church in Florida, is located 12 miles south of Lake City, on highways 41 and 441 . There is a cemetery by the church that became the finial resting place of these ambitious pioneers. On December 30, 1875, 24 year old David Pinkney Haltiwanger married Eugenia Elizabeth Burns, Eugenia was born on April 24, 1854 the daughter of James Burns of Screven County, Georgia, and Elizabeth Rawls Bums of Decatur, Georgia.

In May, 1986, the Haltiwangers were declared a Pioneer Farm Family by Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Doyle Conner.
