About John Frederick Dubard
Much information for this family was obtained from a report on genealogical research done by Leonardo Andrea. This study was done for the William Dubard, Sr., descendants in 1955. A copy is in the Carolinian Library of the University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC.
Apparently the German spelling of the name Dubbert became changed to Dubard or DuBard. Earliest records show his name and most of his children as Dubbert or Dubert. The LDS (Latter Day Saints) IGI has many listings in Germany for Dubbert and Deubbert, but none for the spelling Dubard. In the will (1808) of his daughter, Catherine who married Dilmon Fasbender, the name is spelled DuBard.
John Frederick is stated as having died of small pox during the Revolution. He was minister for the German Reformed church at Cedar Creek Church which served those in the Dutch Fork area (Lexington/Richland) NW of Columbia for a time. Then returned to Charleston after being reported as a Tory (someone who was loyal to the crown) while living in the Dutch Fork area. He was a minister in Charleston also as was stated in the wedding announcement in the Charleston newspaper for his youngest daughter, Elizabeth R. who married J. J. Schroeder, 10 Nov 1800.
