Welcome to the Palmer Family History Web Site!
This web site is maintained by Donna Meszaros, a fourth great-granddaughter of Reverend Joshua Palmer. Joshua was an Englishman who settled in South Carolina as early as 1762. He was a farmer and a Baptist minister and served many churches in South Carolina. In 1807, he purchased land in what is now Union County, Indiana. His family and many members of his congregation soon joined him in their new home. From Indiana, the Palmer family spread to Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri. Today descendants can be found in almost every state, as well as in Australia and New Zealand. Read about him here.
Reverend Joshua Palmer has often been confused with Captain Joshua Palmer, a Revolutionary War veteran who was born in Virginia, enlisted in the war from Union District, South Carolina, and lived there until he died in 1835. Read about him here.
The purpose of this site is to publish what is known about our Palmer ancestors and to encourage the exchange of information among those researching the family.
