Regina, this is not my family, but I have a might try "Stouzenneken", as well as other variations, for spelling of your Richard "Stalnaker". The Stouzenneigers (another spelling) were there in South Carolina from 1737 (Jacob "Sturtsinggery" ..another spelling variation...received 100 acres)when New Windsor Township was laid out in Granville, County, SC; land given to 50 Swiss families (about 192 persons) arriving in Charleston, S.C. Feb. 1737.

In July 1734, Sebastian Zouberbuhler of Appensell, Switzerland signed a contract to bring a hundred families to settle land in S.C. They arrived in Charleston in Feb. 1737.

"Stalnaker" could easily have been shortened version of "Stourzenegger".

I am researching Germans in the Edgefield County,SC area and have found so many different spellings for my ancestors.

You might also try the Dutch Fork families in S.C., Lexington County in particular.

Hope this helps.
