I think these South Carolina Wettsteins came from Elizabeth Whetstein, who was a member of an early church there. In Germany there was a prophet by the name of John Ulrich Giessendanner, who was a member of the "Inspirationists." http://www.netside.com/~genealogy/europe.htm

John Ulrich Giessendanner


------------------------------------------------------------
It might be this man who was the original pastor who immigrated to South Carolina, and wrote of ELizabeth Wettstein being a member of his congregation.


Birth: 31 Jan 1660 Place: Lichtensteig,St. Gallen,Switzerland
Death: 1738 Place: Orangeburg Dist,South Carolina

------------------------------------------------------------

Parents:
Father: Andreas Giessendanner
Mother: Barbara Steger
------------------------------------------------------------



Giessendanner prophesied to the town council, and went through a good decree of persecution. German Lutherns wanted reform, but this guy leaped into true New Testament Christianity, with all the signs and wonders spoken of in Mark 16:16-18 and Acts 2:17-38.
He moved to America and had great success and was greatly loved as a pastor. Also prominent in the Wettstein history, was a man named Rock, (Roch) of the French Huguenots, who intermarried with the Wettsteins. This was during the early Protestant Reformation. (Trace through Adam Rock)
