Shealy Family 


Contributed by Carl W. Nichols

  The Shealy family came to South Carolina in 1752 from Unterhausen, then in the Duchy of Württemberg, now part of Lichtenstein, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.  The Shealy family is traced back to Michael Schülin who lived in Unterhausen from the time of the Thirty Years War.  The surname is found in the record books of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Unterhausen as Schülin, Schiele, and Schielen.  Schüle is the present day spelling of the name in Germany.  Many descendants of Michael Schülin still live in the same area. 


Michael Schüle was married on 21 November 1645 in Unterhausen to Catharina Haak who was born in 1614 and died on 28 November 1689.  She was the daughter of Hironimi Haak.  Michael Schülin died in Unterhausen on 30 October 1711.

THE CHARLESTON TIMES, Issue of 28 November 1805

Extract of a letter from the Rev. Frederick Joseph Wallace (meaning Wallern), to Judge Watres, dated Dutch Fork, November 11, 1805.


  “On the third day of October last, I attended, in one of my congregations, the funeral of Mrs. Margaret Sheely, a native of Germany, and fifty three years a resident of this place.  She departed this life in the ninety-fifth year of her age; and had been a widow, these thirty years past.  She had in all nine children, and in the course of her good old age, the happiness of seeing fifty-nine grand children, one hundred and seventy-one great-grand children, and three great great grand children, besides those she never did see; all of them the issue of her only son and five daughters.”


  Seven of her children by Johannes Schiele are accounted for in the German record and she had a daughter by her previous marriage.  If Margareta Shiele had nine children there would have been an additional child born after arrival in SC.  Fifty nine of her grandchildren are accounted for.
