The preparation of the manuscripts for this volume so 
nearly matched tlie work of the author and his aims and 
objects so nearly expressed our ideas and aspirations that we 
can do no better than embody tlicm in tlie Preface to this 
volume. These ideas, plans, hopes and expressions are so 
clearly and definitely stated by his PREFACE, that we pre- 
sent the same in facsimile. 

We have, throughout the volume, used copious portions 
of the Annals wliieli are properly indicated. 

It is also our delight to heartily acknowledge the help of 
all friends who have faithfully assisted in any way. Among 
those specially mentioned are W. T. Harbaugh and ^Irs. 
Cissena Boor, who have been the chief promoters; Miss Effie 
Ifarbaugh, who has })ut the manuscripts in typewritten form 
and assisted in correcting and arranging it for the press; 
also Hon. Linn Harbaugh, author of "The Life and Ilistori/ 
of Henry Harbaugh, D.D." for valuable ideas gathered from 
that volume.

FROM 1736 TO 185G. 

My boast is not, that I deduce my birth 

Prom loins enthroned, and rulers of the earth ; 

But higher far my proud pretensions rise— 

The son of parents passed into the skies. [Cou-per. 




'Vhii annals of a family are interesting and sacred to its 
moinhers alone, and a stranj^er doth not intermeddle there- 
with. To cherish the memory of our ancestors is a plain 
dictate of piety. <>nly those who care not for their destiny, 
can he careless as to their origin. He that forgets his ances- 
tors is either si lipid or wicked, or both. 

These Annals have been gathered gradually during some 
years, in \H^)'i the Authoi' began to record them in a syste- 
matic historical order, under the title of '"Jiistorical Keniiuis- 
cences of my Ancestors, Preserved for my Children;" and as 
such, they became privately known to some members of the 
family, who earnestly desired their publication, so that they 
might he accessible to the numerous descendants. Additional 
care was then hestowcMJ on the subject — and this little book 
is the result. 

The reason why the notices of some branches of the 
family are more full and complete than others, is at once 
apparent. The necessary details could only be obtained by 
the assistance of members of the dilTerent branches; and in 
some cases such (•o-()[)i'i'at ion ((luld not be secured. Much 
lime has het'U sjjent, and many Idlers have been written, in 
the elfort to make the record full. All that it was possible 
thus to colled is liei'c faithfully [U'cserved. Though minute 
details may here and there he wanting — some small twigs 
and buds may be missed — yet the historical tree, in its trunk 
and hraiu'hes, is here descrihi'd unhrokeu and complete, dur- 
ing a growth of one hundred ami twenty years. 

It will be easy, by the aid of these annals, for the most 
remote descendant to locate himself and trace his relation- 
ship to the parei\t stock; and thus all that is essential is 


secured. In regard to the whole, the Author can only say: 
"Would it were worthier." As it is, he affectionately dedi- 
cates it to one and all, old and young, far and near, known 
and unknown, who helong to this wide-spread family. 

Annals like these, made up of births and deaths, genera- 
tions that come and go, remind one sensibly of the vanity of 
earth, and point earnestly to that which abides in heaven. 
There may we all meet, when our short pilgrimage on earth is 
ended — "no wanderer lost I" "As for man, his days are as 
grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the 
wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the places thereof 
know it no more. But the mercy of the Lord is from ever- 
lasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his 
righteousness unto children's children; to such as keep his 
covenant and to those that remember his commandments to 
do them."

To the Posterity of thosp early forefathers, who 
60 n(jt>ly and lieroically faced the privations of 
pioneer life that they might help to build an em- 
pire in which tlieir descendants might enjoy the 
blessings of freedom of conscience, the pursuit of 
happiness and the pleasures of our Christian 
civilization, this volume is respectfully dedicated. 



In thiij volume we have chosen to make use of a few 
abbreviated term3 for the sake of simplyfing and classifying 
the text: Tims, we will use b. lor born, m. for nuirried, d. 
for dead or dird, * for died in infancy or youth, also the 
other commonly acci'i»(cd abbreviations, ^uch as ai-e used for 
states, etc. 

In the sxeiic:do<^M(iil table we have used the letters of the 
alpbabet to represent the various generations and nundjer the 
children in each family by the figures (numerals). Thus, A 
will represent the original sire, Yost Ilarbaugh, and his 
(hildren will be noted by the letter ii. Thus B-1, B-2, B-3,. 
15-4, B-5, B-G, etc., are his children: George, Ludwig, Jacob, 
John, Yost, respectively. The third generation will be noted 
by tlie third letter of the al].habet, ('. A glance at the table 
will reveal the plan of construction. Tliis plan is followed 
all the way through to end of the table, lu the branch of 
Ludwig Harbaugh — B-2 — the plan reaches the eighth gener- 
ation — H. 

Wo hope that every mendier of the family, however re- 
mote from the parent stock, will make use of the family 
lecord found herewith and that will, if properly filled in, 
preserve a record of the past, present and future, and be a 
valuable record for tlie familv.

Harbaugh Annals. 

About the year 1736, Yost Harbaugh and his family of 
four sons, possibly, emmigrated to this country. This family 
lived in one of the southwestern cantons or provinces of 
Germany and owing to religious persecutions, had sought 
freedom in Switzerland and from there they came to Amer- 
ica. At that time America was the great boon to the perse- 
cuted of western Europe and many of them found their way 
thither. His first settlement was in Maxatawany Township, 
then Philadelphia, Pa., finally in 1760-61 moving west of the 
Susquehanna and into Frederick County, Maryland, on a 
tributary to the Potomac River. The valley through which 
this little stream flowed took the name of the first settlers 
and is still known as "llarbaugh's Valley". Some yeara 
after coming to America his wife died. Later he married 
again. His children by his first wife were: George, Ludwig, 
Jacob, John, Henry, and Yost. By his second wife : Leonard, 
Mary-Elizabeth, Ann-Margaret, Ann- Catherine. 

Tn taking up the work of continuing the history of the 
Harbaugh family, or rather that branch of the family — the 
second son — known as Ludwig Harbaugh, and tracing the 
descendants to the present time, no more worthy cause can 
be thought of for the present generation than to keep fresh 
in our mind the attainments, ideals and worthy deeds of their 
parents and other ancestors. We shall take some tilings as 
they are in the Annals, so as to give at least a concise epitome 
of the early history of our forefathers, that we may the better 
understand what it meant to live in those early pioneer timef. 

U Harbauc.1I Annals 

Egv. Henry Harbaiigh in the Annals has this to say of 
tho early life of these people: 

'"The habits of these early German settlers were truly 
primitive, simple, sturdy and severe. The early inhabitants 
of the Kreutz Creek region were clothed, for some years, 
altogether in tow cloth, as wool was an article not to be 
obtained. Their dress was simple, consisting of a shirt, 
trousers, and a frock. During the heat of summer, a shirt 
and trousers of tow formed the only raiment of the inhabi- 
tants. In the fall the tow frock superseded. When the cold 
of winter was before the door, and Boreas came rushing from 
the North, the dress was adapted to the season, by increasing 
the number of frocks, so that in the coldest part of the winter 
some of these sturdy settlers were wrapped in four, five and 
even more frocks, which were bound closely about the loins, 
usually with a string of the same material as the garment. 

"But man ever progresses; and when sheep were intro- 
duced, a mixture of tow and wool was considered an article 
of luxury. But tow was sliortly afterward succeeded by 
cotton, and the linsey-woolsey was a piece of the wildest 
extravagance. If these simple, plain and honest worthies 
could look down upon their descendants of the present day, 
they would wonder at the changes of men and things. These 
lionest progenators of ours have passed away and have left 
many of us, we fear, nothing but th(> names they bore, to 
mark us as their descendants. 

"But all good did not die with tliem. If they would 
find cause for regret at our departure from their simplicity 
and frugality, they would find much to admire in the im- 
proved aspect of the country — tlie rapid nian-h of improve- 
ment in the soil of their adoption. Where they left unoccu- 
pied land, they would find valuable plantations, and thriving 
villages, and temples dedicated to the worship of the God of 

IIarijauciii An'xals 15 

"These early settlers were, of course, subjected to many 
inconveniences. There was neither shoemaker nor tanner in 
the whole of York County. Shoes were annually brought 
from Philadelphia to supply the settlers, and the mending 
was done by itinerant cobblers, carrying their little leather 
used in mending, with their tools from one house to another. 
And blacksmiths were also itinerants. The same inconveni- 
ences also, of course, attended the introduction of schools. 
The first schoolmaster was known by no other name than thai 
of 'Der Dicke Schulnu'ister' — the thick schoolmaster. The 
privileges of the church they could only enjoy by going to 
Fijincaster, where a reformed church was built as early as 
1736 and a Lutheran cliurch in 1738, and where there was 

preacliing at intervnls even some years earlier 

l\rinisters from the otiier side of the Kiver Susquehanna came 
()\er once or twice a year nml baptized tlie children." 

Yost ITarbaugli, A-1, tlie progenator of the American 
stock, had lieen lirouglit u]) in tlie faith of the German 1-ve- 
rdi'med Cluircli in Switzerland, nor did lie fail to follow up 
liis religious duties in raising his chiUlren, according to his 
faitli, in this country. Among the first enterprises we find 
him encouraging the building of a church near his home. 

The Annals speaks of his thus: 

"Tradition says he was a man of stout jihysical frame, 
energetic spirit, and great courage; just sueh a nuin as woubl 
enter upon new set tlenients ;i!id i)rave the dangei's and endure 
the hardships of a border li I'e." 

Singular it is that we tliid this father of the race nuni- 
b(-red in an unmarked gi-a\e wiih not I'ven a slal) to dis- 
tinguish the last resting |ilare of one wh(un we should ri'ver- 
eiiee as a benefactor.

extreme upper end of the valley. 

LuDwiQ Harbaugh, B-2. 
is the second son of the progenator of the family, B-2 of A-1. 
As this is the branch of the family that most concerns us, 
we will now give our attention to that. From the Annals 
we gather that Ludwig was born in Switzerland about 1828 
or 29. He seems to have lived at various places in Pennsyl- 
vania and Maryland, but finally located in Harbaugh's 
Valley, southwest of Sabillasville, on a farm once owned by 
a man named Zollinger. He died August 9, 1809, at the 
ripe age of eighty-two years and is buried in the graveyard 
on his own farm. His wife, Christina, died Oct. 17j 1797, 
aged seventy years, and lies by his side. Ludwig was the 
father of ten children: Christian, Jacob, Henry, Peter, 
lost, John, Elizabeth, Mary, Christina and Margaret. And 
lor our purpose, we shall follow the descendants of Yost, the 
fifth son of the family, C-5 of B-2. 

In regard to him, the Annals says, "Yost Harbaugh lived 
in the valley near where my Uncle Elias resided. He fell 
in with the sect of the United Brethren in Christ and that 
had services which he attended, in a school house near his 
home, which I remember to have heard of frequently when I 
was yet a boy. He died about the year 1836 or 1837, age 
about sixty years." 

Rev. Henry Harbaugh had a great task in giving us such 
a complete record covering nearly a century and a quarter of

time Mild ^'■nllirriii'^f diila of so many and scattered families. 
j\Iany of tlicse early pioneer families kept no family record 
and it was dilTieult to get correct data for many of even the 
(hen present generations. 

There are many things about the past that are forever 
hiii'ie(l l)y the oldivion of the past that we would like to 
know, hut never will. The past is goiu,' with it its triumphs, 
griefs and joys, its failure; the ever living present is here, 
is before us to use, to magnify, to glorify. Live it, face to 
the front, ^lake the world better as the past has striven 
to do.

Thus it will he seen that Mr. ilarbaugli began his early 
life (luring the early days of the new government. Those 
wore stirring times, froiight with all tlie vicissitudes and 
toil of that early pionecM- tinu'. He was apprenticed to a 
ear|)enter and learned tliat trade in liis early manhood. Like 
many, many others of his day and since, lie yearned to seek 
a home in the new and uiidevelo|H'(l west, wliich was then 
the Xoiihwi'sl 'i'ei'i'itoiy and out of which the states of Ohio, 
Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin have been formed. 
Accordingly, al'tei' his marriage, they settled in Muskingum 
County, Ohio. This place not heiiig agreeable, they moved 
to Sandy\ille in Tusciirawas County, Ohio. Thev lived here

and ten children, in a wagon drawn bv a team of oxen and 
a light wagon drawn by one horse. These two vehicles 
brought this family and its every article of furniture, bedding 
and utensils to the new home in the wilderness. In this 
new land they began again the process of carving out in the 
virgin forest a new home. Dense as the forest was, beset as 
they were with fevers and agues, as all new and swamp coun- 
try is, perseverance, toil and determination to win, conquered 
the forest and soon we see a home. It takes years to accom- 
plish definite ends, but it makes men of the highest intelli- 
gence and worth to the nation. 

In his character, Mr. Harbaugh, was a very_(|uiet, unas- 
suming citizen, approving and helping every cause for the 
up-building of the community. jSTor was he alone, for Mrs. 
Harbaugh was a woman of more than ordinary intelligence. 
The man or Moman who would cross swords with her in an 
argument, must be sure to be able to give a suiTicient reason 
for the faith he or she proclaimed, or they would find their 
cause being cast out of court.

Civil war in 1861-5. Two sons, Valentine and Thomas J., 
went out from this home at the first call to arms for the 
great conflict and remained until the war was over. 

Tills home was blest with twelve children; two died in 
infancy, one in her lifteentli year, and the other nine lived 
to raise families. Six are still living at this date (1915), 
a record for longevity that few families can equal. 

On Feb. ?th, 18G7, Mrs. liarbaugh died and was buried 
in 'I'ruro Cemetery. After the death of Mrs. liarbaugh, he 
(lid not try tt) folhnv up the busy and strenuous activities of 
(be farm life, but rented the farm and lived with the chil- 
dren, until in the winter of 1883-1. This winter he went 
to Fremont, Indiana, to visit his daughter, Mrs. Mary 
Koberts, but during this winter his digestive organs seemed 
to have given out and failed to perform their duties. Medi- 
cal science failed to bring him any help and on April 8th, 
1884, his spirit passed on to the home he so well merited. 
His remains were brought back to Columbus Grove, Ohio, 
and interment was made in Truro Cemetery. Very many 
good things might be said to tlie credit of his frugality, hon- 
esty, stability, perseverence, thoroughness, loveableness, un- 
.sellishness and orderliness, lie was a strict disciplinarian in 
liis lionie. He loved order and had a strict regard for system, 
lie had a place for everything ami wanted everything kept 
in its phire. He had numy trite sayings or axioms of which 
these aie a IVw : "A boy's a boy, two boys a half a boy, 
and three boys, no boy at all"; "Haste makes waste"; 
"Nothing pays so well as the weather"; "A place for every- 
thing and evervlhing in its phue" ; "Take care of the pennies 
and the dollars will take care of themselves"; "It has always 
(piit raining until this lime and it will this time, too"; 
"Don't get the cart before the horse"; "Little ones should 
be seen and not heard"; "A still tongue makes a wise head",

Ap has been paid in anotlier part of tliis sketch, Mrs. 
llarl)angh was a woman of incn-e than ordinan* intelligence, 
in tracing her ancestrv hack wc find too that her ancestors 
were also Swiss-(Jennan and probably emigrated to this conn- 
try in the same generation that the llarbanghs came, though 
we have no definite account of the two families having any 
acipiaintance before coming to America. The progenator ot 
the family was Christopher Exline or Axline, as it has been 
variously used and spelled ever since. He settled in the 
Shenandoah Valley, near Winchester, Va. ('hristoi)her 
Kxline had two sons: Adam and John. Adam Exline livi'd 
at Bedford, Friendly County, I'a., and had four sons: John, 
Henry, Bernard, and Solomon. 

Henry, the second son of Adam Exline, had four sons: 
Adam, John, Dan, David. 

Bernard, the third son of Adam, had iiinc children: 
Adam and Eve, Solomon, Philip, Henry, David and Mary, 
Valentine and Joshua. 

Thus we find the subject of our sketch, "Afary Exline, was 
the seventh child in fourth generation from the progenator 
of this most worthy and excellent family. We have not tried 
to make this genealogical table complete and perfect, as it is 
made up largely from personal memory, nor l)ring it up to 
(hite. We will also say that there are many worthy and 
noted Exlines and Axlines in this country now who trace 
their lineage back to Christopher Exline. We wish we could 
trace the life incidents of these two families from their 
(oming to America to the present time, the history of which 
would interest many people*- 

Thus it will be seen that i\rary p]xline came from a most 
hardy, energetic and persevering people. After her mar- 
riage, she took a very active part in all the affairs of the 
home, her neighborhood and community. Having been

chiii-ch. She round her thoughts of justice, worship and 
many other things taiving a dilFerent channel from some of 
the tilings of that day. Her new location in a new countr}'

dom of ex])ression. IVfrs. Ilarhaugh, as we shall now speak 
of her, hecanie the spiritual leader in her community. For 
many years she was the main stay of the Sunday School and 
other interests of the church. She helieved in every one who 
pi'ol'essed to he a follower of Christ to live up to that profes- 
sion daily and it mattered not even if it was the very minister 
himself, whom she learned was not doing right, she had no 
compunctions of conscience ahout taking him to task ahont 
his perfidy. Thus years ago, at the time of, or soon after 
the suppost'd c\'))osnre, hy INForgan of Free Masonry, she

his demit, oi' withdi-awal card from the lodge just before the 
Annual Coiifei-ence and then after (\wferenee was over, he 
would tuiii in his card again. In that way he could answer 
all tlu> (piestions asked by the Bishop satisfactorily. Mrs.

was like an avalanche from an unsuspecting cloud. So awful 
did his acts ap|H'al to her that she told him on one occasion 

2i Thomas Harbaugh 

if she were a inenibor of the Quarterly Conference and had a 
thousand votes she would cast thorn all to dismiss him from 
the church. Her defense of the church as it then believed 
and the hideousness of his practice, as slie pictured it, was 
the interesting topic for many seasons. 

Another thing in which Mrs. Harbaugh took an interest- 
ing part was the discussion of the slavery question. Having 
been born and raised in the East and having been influenced 
liy the speeches and writings of the great abolition leaders 
of that day, she imbibed all the great principles they taught. 
At the time of the organization of the Republican party, it 
became evident that it would be the party that would cham- 
pion the cause of the "black man", she used to say to the 
Kepublicans, "Your party has stolen our principles". These 
were stirring times; most every individual had an opinion for 
or against and when it came to an issue, it was not hard to 
find where each one stood. Mrs. Harbaugh was always fore- 
most in the struggle for the maintenance of the Union. 

Another feature or characteristic of Mrs. Harbaugh was 
her desire to alleviate suffering and to help the needy. It is 
said of her that she would deny herself even the necessaries 
of life, if there were a sick person in the neighborhood that 
she could share the delicacies or even tiie humblest of eat- 
ables. The simplest things of some tables would be counted 
even delicacies on other's tables. Her generosity in this 
regard was not altogether a generosity witli licr, it was con- 
sidered a part of her religious duty. This practice was al- 
ways carried out by herself, and having several girls in her 
family, they also were taught, in like manner, to be useful 
to the community and to themselves.

Tribute to My Mother 

(V)y her youngi'st son, \V. 'V.) 

Tn writini;' my memories of my sainted motlier. 1 will 
b'^gin with my earli(>st recollections of her Christian charai'ter 
and what elTect and impression her sterling worth bail upon 
my future life. 

She was a woman who stood by lu>r convictions ami her 
s( use of right. She believed that the Constitution of (Hir 
(Jovernmeid was foiimled on the Hihie and llu' hi'si wav to 
jH'rpetuate that Constitution was to teach the Kible to the 
rising generation. So, she with others, organized a Sabbath 
School in the old log school house, known as the old Plum 


Creek School House, one among the first United Brethren 
Sahl)ath Schools in Pleasant Township, and was its Super- 
intendent for a long time. In those days (sixty years ago) 
we liad no lesson-leaves, no ([uai'terlies nor lesson-helps, but 
1 ri'iiu'inber vi'ry distinctly how \\v used to commit verses to 
iiK'inory and how those verses have clung to my memory, 
siu'h as "In the beginning the word was with God and the 
word was CJod," also those soul-cliccring and spirit-reviving 
songs, such as, 

"I think when 1 read that sweet story of old, 

When Jesus was lici'c among men, 
Wlicn lie called little cliildn'n as Land)s to His Fold, 

1 should like lo liave been with lliin then." 

It seems strange, and yet how true, that our earliest im- 
pressions are the most lasting. One of the great character- 
istics of my mother was her liberality. She would not only 
divide the last bit of eatables she had, but would carry pro- 
visions to the poor and sick. She was very industrious. She 
had a loom and wove linsey-woolsey jeans and linen. One 
tail she wo\e some fancy woolen blankets and knit some 
woolen niittt'ns and took tlieni to the State Fair, wlien it was 
held at Dayton, Oliio. She would weave sonii' nights until 
nine and ten o'chx'k and would liave me hold tlie candle for 
lier to sei'. W'v had no lamps in those days, nothing but the 
molded tallow candle and tlie old grease lamj). I remember 
one night, while holding tlie candle. I fell asleep and let the 
candle di-op on the cloth, but Motlier was very patient 
with me. 

Tll()^fAs TTAiMVM'orr 


I Uiiiiik (iod for a Christian mother and tliat I had the 
])i'i\il(';,^r of slandin<i- hy licr hcdsidc and licai- her hist words 
of assurance and li-nst in (Joil and her admonition to meet 
her in Heaven. Oh, how I feel the ^roat value of her very

J( ffersou St. A few years after locating iu Ft. Wayne, there 
came a chance to invest in a new part of the city, which was 
then making great strides in improvement. The investment 
was made and they were soon living in a fine commodious 
house of their own on West Third St. and in the suhurh 
known as Bloomdale. Mrs. Bell made her home here until 
death called her to her reward on Xovember 1, 1904.

Valentine Harbaiigli. 

Valentine Harbaugh E-4 
was about sixteen years old when the family moved to Put- 
nam County, Ohio, and was a great help to them at those 
trying times. He was of short, rugged stature, like his 
f{;ther, and having an abundance of energy and plenty of 
opportunity to put it to use and being fearless and bold, 
almost to wrecklessness, he was found foremost in almost 
every fray and when the Civil war began, we find him among 
the first volunteers. After joining the army, he was soon 
given a position in the secret service department, one of the 
most difficult and dangerous places in the army. I shall not 
attempt to describe his war record, suffice to say that his 
characteristics as noted above made him a soldier of like 
character. He was at home once on a furlough. He had 
been sent north to bring back a few deserters and in the 
fight that followed, they clubbed him and left him dying, as 
they thought, and it was while recuperating from this attack 
that he was home on furlough. He was in the service until 
after the war was over. Ecturning from the army, he again 
nssunied liis old occupation of farming. He married a 
daughter, Sarah Ann, of John Bogart, a prominent and well- 
to-do citizen of Columbus Grove, Ohio, and settled on a farm 
a half mile south of his father's farm in Pleasant Township. 
The farm is now owned by Mr. George Halker, who pur- 
chased it of him about 1871, at which time Mr. Harbaugh 
moved to Kansas. 

On going to Kansas he took his houshold goods, lumber 
and material to build a house, a team and some other stock. 
At that time central Kansas was a wild prairie region, over- 
run by bands of Indians and herds of Buffalo. Tt was a 
commxDn occurrence for them to shoot a buffalo from the 
door-step. The years went well until the time of the scourge

of the grasshopper seasons and dronfrht vvTiioh followed them. 
Then, as all know, were the years in whieh Kansas earned 
its non-de-plunie. Bleeding Kansas. But the seasons of 
grasshopper, ehinch bugs and drought have had their influ- 
enee to make the state one of the most progressive in the 

In November, 1905, Mrs. Ilarbaugh died and since then

Mrs. Heese's ex|H'riences ha\e been many and varied. 

She distinctly remcndiers moving with hor stepfather and 

mother from C reen Tiake, Minn., overland to Russell County, 

Kansas, in 187."). Her description of the trip, giving au 

4G Elizabeth Harbaugh 

idea of frontier trav<'l during tliat period is herewith given: 
•In Hussell County, Kansas, Mr. Cable took up a soldier's 
claim and two months after their arrival there, he died of 
ineipient bowel trouble, tlius leaving the widow and the little 
girl to prove up the claim, requiring five years according to 
the federal laws at that time. Their papers, covering rights, 
etc., to the land, were signed by President Chester A. Arthur. 

"Travel overland, during that period, was mainly by the 
prairie schooner or covered wagons. They would drive all 
week across prairies, over hills, through valleys and ford 
streams and usually stopped Saturday noon to bake and wash 
tlie soiled linen and resting until ]\Ionday. Vinnie is said 
to have walked most of the distance between ^linnesota and 
Kansas, being content to play along side the moving wagon, 
gathering wild flowers and otherwise amusing herself. Her 
stepfather, wishing to add to her pleasure, made a swing for 
her suspended from the rear axle of the high-wheeled wagon 
and when tired of walking or playing, she w'ould climb into 
this and ride. On one occasion they started fording a stream 
without informing her. Iler discomfort was apparent when 
her feet began dragging in the water, 

"On the occasion of her trip through St. Paul, on her 
way to Green Lake, Minn., she saw a lamb on the street and 
tliouglit it nnist be like her pets on her grandfather's farm 
in Ohio. However, she learned differently when he recipro- 
cated her kindness by promjitly l)utting lier into the street. 

"JTer life and that of her mother was one of luirdship and 
stirring experience, — a new country, sparsely settled with no 
facilities, the prairies infested by packs of wolves, flocks of

F-1 Chas. A. Smith was born at Weston, 
Ohio, in what was then the famous "Black 
Swamp", which was in the early pioneer 
times of JSTorthwestern Oliio. It took its 
name from the blackness of the soil and the 
swampy and mireyness of the region, and 
where, as he says, "there were lots of black- 
snakes and fevers, chills and ague, mos- 
quitoes and tadpoles". Fifty years ago 
that country was a horror to even dream 
about. But after drainage and the clearing 
was completed the "swamp" once the terror 
for its horrors, soon became the paradise 
and garden spot of the state. At thirteen 
5'ears of age, he went to Kansas with his 
father, where he nmde his home. He took 
up a claim for a quarter section of land on 
the opposite side of the Union Pacific R. E., 
from his father's farm. In 1908 he sold 
his land and settled in Jackson County, 
Oregon, near a new town called Ruch. Here 
he lives at the present time. He married 
Miss Myra B. Garrett at Eussell, Kansas, 
Aug. 6, 1902, by Judge A. E. Sweet, Pro- 
bate Judge. To this union were born three 
children : 

G-1 lioUand, born at Bunker Hill,

V-2 Myrtle Smith, being the only girl in 
the family, at the death of her mother, had 
to assume the responsibility of the home and 
the care of an invalid brother (twin) which 
iiiadc the care on her very much more than 
it wouhl otherwise have been. But her 
lalhcr and hnjther, Charles, helped to carry 
the responsibility. Later this brother, 
Willie, by name, was placed in the State 
Institution for hV-eble Minded, and died a 
few years later. After his death, ifyrtle 
married Robert II. Durham, at Bunker Hill 
and began housekeeping on her father's 
farm, living there a few years and then 
moving to Lane County, Kan.

lUENKOUS ll.\l!li.\l (ill, IvT 

was born in Sandyvillc, '^I'uscurawas County, Ohio, May ."), 
1S37. lie came to riitnaiii County with his father and I'aii!- 
ily in IS'lT. He, hcini;- cIcncii ycai's old when they moved 
to thoir new home, wa.s a great help in the lahor, clearing 
the forest away for tlu! new fields. In those early times 
before the (Uvil war, neighbors were sometimes miles apart 
and yet when the young people of several families assembled 
in husking-bces, apple-peelings, sugar-making and other kin- 
dled sports, the overflowing mirth and pleasure has not been 
surpassed by any generation since then, ^lany a romance 
of courtship ccnild be retold that would be as fascinating and 
interesting as any modern talc of cupid's adventures. But 
we will fori'go the recital of any of these. 

On Jan. 5, 180.5, he married iliss Emma Liza Hull of 
Liberty Township, Putnam County, Ohio, and moved on his 
farm which he had purchased in Union Township, a quarter 

of a mile west of the home of his father. 

In the spring of IS',!), he rented and moved on his father's 
farm and resided there until the time of his death. 

\\i his life, Irciu'ous was a very conscientous and loya^ 
citizen, a leader in (he church in the community and sup- 
porter of good ent(.'r])rises for the u[)buil(ling of eomnninitv 
and society. Not being blest with a rugged constitution as 
his othci' brothers are, he fell a [U'ey to disease almost before 
he should have ri'achetl the prime of life. The Keapcr 
(•laimed him on February 7, iS'iS. Tiie fuiu-ral services were 
C(uulucted ill I he riiited ISretlireii Cliiireh on the homestead 
and burial was made in his family burial ground in Truro

father's death, his mother and children 
moved back on their farm west of the Plum 
Creek Church. The subject of this sketch 
was but a lad just beginning his 'teens and 
through the \icissitudes of the times, it be- 
fell his lot, much of his time, to be among 
strangers at labor and attending school in 
the honu^ coniinuiiily and having had good 
teachers, he made good jirogress. Those 
were the limes of llu' ungraded county

the option of the lad or hiss. If the pupil 
chose to study the three "R's" — Reading,

before it could he bouiui in book form tlte 
author passed to the (Ireat Beyond, at liis new- 
home in I'inewood, C't)U)rado, on December 

6. 1915. 


I'li\ si()lii;4V, (i r';iiiiiii;ir', nor History, those

Rut cvcntujilly tlic pupils found out to 
tlifir s()i-i'o\v tli;it tlicii' option liail lofl them 
;iniis>. Thus it was with our suhjcct. tliat 
wht'M he caiiir to himself ;it ahout ci'.ditcc.'n 
ycai's of Miic he had to pay dearly in both 
time and nnoncy lo rc^^ain what he had 
n('<;l('clcd to learn what hi' should have ac- 
quii'cd when he was pui'suinir the three 
''ITs'" in the country school, with vigilance. 
'^riic learning of those coinnion scliool 
branches after he went to college, was a 
set-back from which he never fully re- 
gained. At about the twenty-first year, he 
took up his studies at the Tri-State Xornuil 
College, Angola, Indiaiui, and applied him- 
self assiduously until the next fall when 
he secured a school in Scott Township, 
Steuben County, Indiana, and taught hit> 
first term of schotd. At the close (d' this 
term of school, he went west, as. mentioned 
in chaptt'r \'lll. His thought at the close 
of this school was that it was a dismal 
failui'c and that he had lost out as a 
tt'achei', that the community would not 
want him e\er to I'eturn. i'>ut after s[)end- 
ing the sumnu'r in Kansas and Iowa, ho 
I'd u rued to Angola and took uji his studies 
again at the Tri-State Normal College; 
A\'hen it ciwu.v time to hire teai-hers for the 
wilder term, he was again chosen for the 
winter term. At the cb)se of this, his sec- 

GO Ireneous TIarbaugh 

ond term, he went back to Iowa. Here ha 
spent the summer working by the month 
on a farm and in tlie fall took up teaching. 
After spend iiii:- two and a half years in 
Iowa, working in the sunnner and teaching 
in the winter, he again returned to the 
cast and after a visit among friends again 
took up his studies at the T. S. N. C. and 
spent the year in school. At the close of 
the school year, he spent his vacation, visit- 
ing in New York and Washington, D. C, 
and to Harbaugh's Valley in Maryland. 
Soon after returning to his homestead at 
Columbus Grove, Ohio, he took down with 
typhoid fever and had a long and serious 
tussle with that dreaded malady, but by the 
following spring sufficiently recovered to 
enter the school room again. His next 
school work was at Montana, where he 
taught two terms, then next at Huntstown, 
a neighboring school but in an adjoining 
township. Two terms were taught in Lib- 
erty Township and two in Pleasant Town- 
sliip. In 1S07, together with his brother- 
in-law, A. ('. Wolfe, they established the 
Deshler 'I'i'iilh. Selling his interest to his 
l)rntluM--iii-law, he took a position as sules- 
iiian for a ri(|iia firm and followed that 
foi" nearly seven vears. 

In 189.") he was man-ied to Miss Iva

was an old stead}' farm horse and a three-year-old colt. We 
had good neighbors that were interested in onr success, as we 
liad a mortgage on the farm and they gave the boy farmer 
advice and encouragement." 

In a few years the youngest son, Edward, became the 
farmer until he readied his nineteenth year, when he decided, 
he wanted to get a better education. Tliey made a sale ami 
Eddie, as he was familiarly called, went to Angola, Indiana, 
and began his studies in the Tri-State College and ^Irs.

they were married and spent a few weeks of honeymoon at

daughter. Alma, being the bride of the

next July a bright little girl came to 
brighten their home. After a cou- 
ple of years on the farm they moved to 
Oklahoma, thinking the climate would be 
more healthful. After a few years in Okla- 
homa, the climate did not lielp his wife's 
health, so they continued their journey on 
to Califoriiia and soon afterward located 
at Modesto, about one hundred and fifteen 
miles east of San Francisco, where he now 
owns and lives on a farm or '"ranch'''' as 
they are called there.

F-5 Samuel Rutherford Harhaugh was 
not as robust and strong as the other boys 
and in 1901 went to California for his 
health. While at Los Angeles he met a 
former school friend, ]\Lss Inez Darbyshire, 
who used to live at Kalida, Ohio, and as is 
sometimes the case, that "distance lends en- 
chantment." So it w;is in this ease. The 
two sojourners in a far country became fast 
and true friends and on Marcli 31), 1902, 
at Los Angeles, tlie city by the "big sea", 
were joined in marriage. The newly-weds 
took boat to Si'iittle, Washington, wliere 
they lived until liis fatlici' asked liini to 
come home and I'ai'm the home place. He 
remained on the fann until his fatlier sold 
it, tlien retufiied to California and pur- 
chased a place near Modesto, where his 
brother, Kichard, lives. Aside from his 
farm he is a mail carrier on a rural route.

'•Isaac Ludwig is one of the prominent farmers of Marion 
Twp., Allen County, Ohio, residing on a well-improved farm 
in section 32, is a survivor of the Civil war. He is a member 
of a staunch old American family and of a pioneer one in 
Ohio. He was born Jan. 3, 1842, at Stringtown, Pickaway 
County, Ohio, and is a son of Jacob and Louisa (DeLong) 

"The Ijudwig name in America dates back to the time of 
(ie'orge Washington, for it was during the war of the Kevolu- 
tion that an ancestor of the subject of this sketch, joined 
the army under Washington. He was the great-grandfather 
of Jacob Ludwig, our subject's father, who came as a pioneer 
into Marion Township, Allen County, Ohio. 

"Isaac Ludwig was the eldest born of these estimable, and 
worthy parents and his home training was all in the direc- 
tion of industry, temperance and fidelity. He was seven 
years old when his parents came to Allen County and his 
schooling was secured in a little log structure which at that 
time was considered entirely adequate for the educational 
needs of the children. He was reared a practical farmer and 
l)rior to the outbreak of the Civil war, his horizon was prob- 
aljly bounded entirely by his thoughts regarding the limits 
of the county. When recruits began to pour into the towns 
from the peaceful, surrounding farms, our subject was one 
of the first to oiTer his service and was enlisted in Company 
B, Mcljaughlin's Squadron, Ohio Volunteer Cavalr}', in 
which he served three years, receiving an honorable discharge 
as a paroled prisoner from T^ibby Prison, where he had been 
incarcerated for a time. 

"IVIr. Ludwig relates many inlcresting incidents of war 
times, many of those which seldom get into print and in 
many of which he took part. Space must be given here for 
at least one of these, on account of its pleasant sequel.

while the othei' two went to the farm house to prospect for 
some chickens. In the meantime a squad of Wheeler's 
troopers, belonging to the N'inth Kentuckj C'avalr}', slipped 
up to the mill and on shoi-t order onr subject and his com- 
panions were made prisonei-s of war. 'The officer in charge 
of the arrestinj^ party was Lieutenant Alhery K. Ilouk, who. 
with southern courtesy, treated his prisoners well. Before 
sending them on to Kichinond. the officer a«ked a favor of 
Mr. Ludwig, to whom he seemed especially attracted. This 
favor was, that when exchanged, the Union soldiers should 
write up the circumstances and send the account to the 
father of Lieutenant Houk, the son he could not reach, and 
assure him of his xm's welfare. It is needless to add that 
j\rr. Ludwig did so, and the reply he received he values as 
one of Ids treasures. This did not close the incident. In 
18!);"), when attending,- the National (!. A. \l. I-incampment 
at Louisville, Ky., Mr. Ludwig- learned that the former Con-

children. I shall always remember how delighted and happy 
he was when assigned as Sunday School teaclier of the lit lie 
boys and girls, in the Plum Creek Sunday School. In thof-e 
days we were all assembled in one room and many times we 
were interrupted by fathers class exhibiting their vocal 
talents by rehearsing a song he had taught them. His favor-

" 'The Sunday School is my delight, 

Oh, let us hasten there. 
For there we learn the way that's right 

And hear the voice of prayer.

and workers of a state-wide movement toward a 'Dry Ohio*,

F-G Mary Myrtle was married to Mr.

printed in the local paper, so completely 
covers her life that we give it in full: 

"Mary ^lyrtle Harbaugh, daughter of 
William T. and Martha Harbaugh, was 
born in Pleasant Township, Putnam Co., 
Ohio, August 14, 188,3, and died at the 
place of her birth on June 16, 1905, at the 
age of twenty-one years, ten months and 
two days. Under the ministry of Rev. W. 
V. Davis in 1901, she united with the 
Church of the United Brethren in Christ. 
She was united in marriage with Fredrick 
Beam, Sept. 2, 1903, the Rev. C. I. Roberts 
officiating. The Lord blessed this union 
with a precious little daughter. Pearl 
Aneita, born Feb. 20, 1905. ]\Irs. Beam 
was a great sufferer, as her affliction was 
severe indeed. But she endured it all with- 
out a nmrmur or a complaint. She was 
quite hopeful until within a day of her 
death, when she gave those who were near

as they san<;, "Think of the ironie ov(;r 
there". While at th(,' lios[)ital .she, wiili 
others, kept up their ilevolion.s in song and 
prayer, and very touching indeed were her 
letters to her husband and friends at home. 
She was a pun; woman, a tender-hearted 
and ad'ectionate wife. Ifi-r trust in .Jesus 
never grew dim, she was weary hut now she 
rests and 'Clod shall wipe away all tears 
from their eyes and there shall be no more 
death, neither sorrow nor eryin^^^ neither 
shall there be any more pain, for the for- 
mer, things have passed away.' She leaves 
a father, mother, husband and infant 
(hiughter, three sisters and two brothers and 
a lai'i;e eirele of relatives and friends to 
mourn her t'arly departure. Her sun is 
gone down while it is day, but her eyes 
have bi'lield the dawning of that day when 
till' sun never sets. The funeral services 
were conducted by her pastor, Hev. 0. F. 
Ijaughbaum, on Sumlay, June 18th, at 3:00 
P. M., which was attended by a large con- 
course of people. The pastor delivered a 
discourse from the te.\t, 'For n\n to live is 
Christ, and to die is gain.' After a touch- 
ing farewell, tiie body was laid away to n'st 
until s\immoned to fullness of reward on 
the Morning of the Resurrection."

We have now written the data of these nine children who 
liave lived to raise families of their own and to glorify the 
name of their Heavenly Father and their Saviour. They 
have been pillars in the cluii'ch among men. It is but tltting 
to add a few words in testimony to the worth of the worlby 
citizens. We shall not atteniipt any laudation but will leave 
that to others. 

The lii-st of this family, probably, to distinguish them- 
selves were Valentine and "T. J.", as he was familiarly 
called, for their service in the War of the Rebellion in 
1861-65, and T. J. who after the war, entered the ministry of

twice elected Stati; Senator I'rom hi.s district, he enjoyed tlie 
distinction oi* l)ein,i,' one of the most ])roniinent nieniljers of 
the Senate. Jle was an e|ii(|U(nt speaker, had traveled much 
and liad ffatiiered ;i \ast fund of f'eneral knowled«ro, had a 
keen analysis of human nature, hated graft in all of its 
forms, he was rc'spectiMJ and honored alike by his frit-nds 
and opponents. 

W. T., the younii'est son. has always been faithful to tlie 
customs of Ihe family. (I I'aiid fat lier's house was alwavs a 
h.ome for the eii'cuit-rider. minister, pa.-tor, elder or I)ishop, 
if he chose to [)ass that way. So it is to this day with W. T. 
Vo work for the chnrch was ever slighted by him and nuu-h 
or more could he said of his generosity and the esteem by 
which lie is held. 

Thus we speak of the lioys of this family, and in like 
manner wi' shall speak of the sisters of the family. Taking 
many traits fr(un theii- motliei', we tind them in the fori'inost 
ritnk among their sex as mothers. Chi-istians. respected citi-

h'or the renewing of the nLcnioiy of the older ones and 
foi- the in foiinat ion n\' the eommg generations. 1 will try to 
gi\(' you a look at >clioo|> as they were sixty years ago. as 
tlie\ were when I lirst hcgan to go to school, j-'ather moveil 
to ruln.ini ('ounty, Ohio, in ISIS, when 1 was imt a year 
old. .\t lln' age of seven my .school days began. I hail about 
;i mile and a half to go. not by road but by path, through the 
fcuvsl. There was a creek, callctl Plum ('ri'ck on accouul of 

112 PioxEKK Days is Ohio 

the abundance of plums that grew along its banks. This 
creek had to be crossed by the scholars going to and from 
the school house on what was called a "foot-log". This 
font-log was made with logs fastened on one side for a walk- 
ing surface and laid on blocks set on end to keep the logs 
above water. There was also a railing fastened so that the 
little ones could hold to, to keep from falling into the water 
which sometimes A\as vt-ry deep. These foot bridges were 
about a quarter of a mile long. On one occasion some of us 
smaller chaps had seen some of the larger boys run across 
without holding to the guardrail and a companion of mine 
and myself thoiight we could do it too. So a challenge was 
made. My pla3^mate started first and made a successful run. 
I started to follow but as his running had started the log to 
vibrating and I had not waited for it to come to rest, when 
I reached about the middle of the span, I was doused into 
the icy water up to my arms and before I got home my 
clothes were frozen stiff. That stopped such venturesome 
pranks by at least one scholar, and was not soon forgotten. 

According to the school laws then, they only provided for 
three months school. Those usually came in the fall or last 
months of the year. The average boy would not get more 
than two months schooling and many times even these were 
by him having to help at home. Thus you see the great 
opportunities (?) we had of getting an education. The 
school system is quite different now. I often wonder that old 
jK'ojde of today know as much as they do, but I suppose it is 
because they went to "Brush College" or "Woodland Sem- 
inary" as we called the old log school houses. 

The old log school house and the up-to-date school house 
with its modern appliances and curriculum make an inter- 
esting comparison. The former with its round logs and 
hewed puncheon floor, clapboard roof, one door, four win- 
dows and for a writing desk, rows of pins were placed along

ing snifacc. A l)ig st(i\c and even sometimes the hig open

plan was thai the lafg<'r liuys were to cut the wood for the 
stn\(' ()i- jii'('|ilacc. rnmi the I'oi'cst that, in most cases, sur- 
I'onnded the scliool. Studit-s tiicii were coiitined to reading,

used (ii'ccn's gramma r. Arc(!ulTy\s s[K'lling hook, ^fcriufTy's 
scries (d' reailei's, IJay's sci'ies of arithmetic. Oftentimes the 
study nf L;('i>grapliy was helped hy changing it into verse or 
rhyme and then singing it. 'i'lius, "'United States, Wash- 
ington. I). ('.. (Ill I lie I'diomae li'i\er," etc. Uow we used to 
make il ring! Many a pei-son in their more mature years 
now owe to that singing of the geography facts of boundaries, 
capilals, and ri\ers, the most they know now of these things. 

Some of (he customs and unurittt'ii laws were as interest- 
ing as e\eii the scliools themselves. It was the custom for 
icachers to '"hoard around"" among the scholars. That is, the 
teacher was to hoard with the scholars. The families took 
turns of hoarding ihi' teacher so the hurdcn would not en- 
t ii-ely fall on one or two families. 

It was also the custom for the teacher to treat the si'hool 
at holiday time with candy, nuts, apples or cards. In those 
i\i,\> iea( lici> al>o had anotlici' »piilc prominent article which 
they "Ircaled"" to some |iarlicular deserving i-haps. It was 
known a< "hickory oil" and its cll'iciency and eiricacy is still 
!t\ercnccd and rc<|)ecied |o this modern day. 1 ri-mcmltcr 
(|iiile disiiii(il\ one time when our teadu-r gave seven of us 
older hoys one of that kind of "treat". How 1 pitied the 
smallest o)w. lie was the last to receive his "treat" and the 
teacher only had the stub of a si.\-foot gad left, so you may 

lU PioxEEU Days in Ohio 

know liow the lad enjoyed his treat. How was that for 
getting an education under difficulties? 

How I would like to attend a real old-fasliioned spelling 
school as it was conducted forty or fifty years ago. Let us 
say in the start that these spelling schools had a high value 
placed upon them by the community and were a social center 
for the neighborhood. After the audience assembled and was 
called to order, the captains who were to chose up the sides, 
took their stations and proceeded to chose the spellers who 
would arrange themselves on the side to whicli they were 
chosen. When all were chosen who would spell, the cap- 
tains each selected a trapper to spell the words the opposite 
side would miss. One person on each side was also selected 
to keep the taly. The teacher or some one on whom he 
called would pronounce the words to be spelled. After the 
spelling had continued for some time and having a report 
from the tellers, a recess would be given. After recess the 
school would again assemble for spelling match. The si)ellers 
would arrange themselves around the wall, standing, the 
teacher pronouncing the word to them as a chiss. WIumi a 
word was mis-spelled the next one had a cliance. The per- 
sons missing the word dropped out of liiu' and look a scat. 
Oftimes tliese were verv interesting. Sdiools woiibl ln' |)ilU'(l 
against schools, sometimes it would be a three-corn<'i'e(l or 
even a rotii'-cornered contest.

as Ihiy appeal- in our generations, shall now be briefly 

[lointcd out. 

"1. ()iir family ha.- always hecn ciiaraclerized by a spirit 
of IXDlSTh'^-. 

'"When oiir ancestors scltlcd in ^'(U'k County and in the 
V^alley and elsewhere, the country was new, wild and 
uiihrokeii. On their own land tluy felled the forests, cleared 
the soil of stone, erected hiiildiiu^s and made homes for them- 
sel\('> and their deseeiidauts. Tliis wa> done hy many a 
weary and earnest stroke — and cost many a drop of sweat. 
l-'reely did they endure the toil, ihat they nii^'ht live honestiv 
aiiionu' their fellow men. and pro\ idc for their descendants. 
We li\e ill the hoii.-es which tiiev erected — we plow, sow aiul 
ica|). tile heaiitifiil liclds which their industry has nunle what 
they are. Let us not f(U'i;ct our iudelttedness to tlu'in' — 
s(piaiider fooli>hly what they ha\i' >o earnestly gathered, and 
show ourseUcs unworthy of what they have left us. Industry 
i.v a Christian virtue, 'lie that will not work, neither shall 


he eat/ is a divine declaration. An idler is a burden to him- 
self, a trouble to others, and an offense to God. With our 
hands or our lieads we must serve God in our day and gener- 

" 'Life is real — life is earnest ;' 
and let every one that lives, live to some noble purpose, and 
seek to make himself useful in llie world. 

"3. Our family has always been ECOXO]\IICAL. Our 
fathers taurrht us by precept and example not to squander 
money uselessly. Oue of theii- provt'rl)s was: 'Wilful waste 
makes woeful want.' They lived plainly, dressed plaiuly, and 
avoided all vain show, and wicked proflif:^acy. Let us go and 
do likewise. 

"3. Tliough they carefully ke])t together tlieir earnings, 
they were always BENEVOLENT. They have generally 
borne the name of being good to the ])()or. They practiced 
the Christian virtue of hospitality. They supported the 
Church of Jesus Christ. Many of them wei-c elders in the 
church. Several churches are erected on hinds donated hy 
them. Let us go and do likewise. 

"4. Our ancestors were SOBER in their hnhits. if the 
great and destructive sin of drunkenness has < re[)t into any 
of the generations, it has been in later branches, 'i'he steiai 
old men wei-e nol un<lei' the power of this vice. If anv 'tarrv 
long at the wine,' and "rise up early to go after strong drink.' 
they have not learned it from iheir forefathers. ]\Iay none 
ever teaeli it io their ( hildren. 

"."). Oui- aneestoi's were HONEST. They alway< hore 
this re|)iitat ion. .\ few years ago 1 rode in th" stage with a 
veneral)h' man who was an I'.x-m.emhei' of ( 'ongi'ess. in tlie 
course of conversation, he inquired my name: and when 
I told him my name, he smiled and said, 'I have long know^i 
your ancestors, and what I remember better than anything

else (if tliciii is, tli;it tlii'ir uoid \v;is always as j^iuu] as their 
ni«|c, or till' inoiK y." 'I'liis i> true til' tliciii. Tlicy paid llieir

io all gciiei'aLioiis. 

"G. Oiw aii((;stor> were prufossurs of religion, and 
MIOMBKUS OF Till': cm I.'CII. They taught their chil- 
dren to lo\(' llie elinnli, and sought to hriiig them up iu its 
bosom. If any are <int id' tlu,: eliurch now, they have fallen 
away t'l'om I lie ^ood old ways of their forefathers, and they 
are prc'])ariiii; for tlieinselves sorrow in the end. The old 
jx'ople all li\cd and died in the eluireh. They regularly at- 
tended upon its sei-\iees, though great distances and numy 
ini onvcnieiices stood in the way. Thoy left their praise- 
worthy example io us, let us transmit it to our ehildren. Be 
ours the language f)f the pious Psalmist: *lf I forget thee, 
.lerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I 
do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my 
mouth; if 1 prefer not -Jerusalem above my chief joy.' 

T love thy kingilom. Lord, 

The liouse of Thine abode; 
The Chuich our blest lledeeiner saved 

With 11 is own pi'ecious blooil. 

I r e'er my liearl forget 

i ler wel fa re or her woe. 
Lei every joy this lieai't forsake. 
And every gri(d' o'erl'low. 

For her my tears shall fall ; 

For her my jtrayers ascend ; 
i'\)r her my ei-ies and toils be given. 

Till toils and i-ares shall end. 


Beyond my liig-lu'st joy, 

T prize her hcavt'iily ways; 
Her sweet comiiiunioii, solemn vows, 

Her liymns of love and i)raise. 

"7. Thus our ancestors sought TO PKP^PAHI': TIlI-::\r- 
they could not live forever. Their fathers liad gone hefore 
them into the silent land, and they felt that they also had no 
continuing city here. They therefore sought a 1 tetter country, 
even a heavenly. They knew that a good hope for a hetter 
life can only be obtained by repentance toward (iod. faith in 
Jesus Christ, and the obedience of a pious life in all the 
graces and fruits of the Spirit. Though like all men they 
had their faults and failings, yet they trusted in that l)lood 
which cleanses from all sin. We have good reason to believe 
that they reached the blissful shore and are now before the 
throne with the spirits of the just made perfect. After the 
labors of life their bodies rest in hope, and their sjiirits arc 
in joy and felicity. When the trump of the archangel shall 
sound and all that are in their graves shall hear the voice of 
the Son of Man, we believe that they shall come forth, 
renewed in the glorious image of the Saviour, to sin, sutfer 
and die no more. Then, in that solemn and glorious day, 
may all their generations be gathei'ed to their fathers in 

When soon or late we reach that coast. 

O'er life's rough ocean driven, 
May we rejoice no wanderer lost, 

A family in heaven !

the sweetest of all comforts to thi'in wlicn the blest assurance 
comes like the smile of an angel, telling ihem {hat our spirits

'3. How sad it is to remend)er that any of our ancestors 
were wicked. How painful to think hack and be able to call 
up nothing but their worldliiiess and vanity. How gloomy 
the thought that any one of them should never have nuade a 
pj'ofcbsion of religion — was no member of the church — or, if 
a member, was not faithful, but fell back again into the 
world. Let us save our children this pain and sorrow. Thus 
shall we bless our posterity with pleasant memories of us 
and our life, and leave them a good example that they nuiy 
follow in our footsteps. 

"4. What wonderful results flow from one man. One 
hundred and twenty years ago a young family, witli only a 
few small children, came to this new world from Switzerland. 
What a multitude of descendants have sprung from that one 
ancestor ! How he would be astonished, could he again stand 
upon the earth and see his generations around him. Hardly 
could he realize it. It would seem to him as a dream when 
one waketh. But more solemn llian this are the moral con- 
sequences which flow from one man. He was a pious num. 
He loved the church and brought uj) his children in it. lie 
helped to found the German Keformed congregation at York, 
Pa., and was a member of it. He aided in building the first 
church there. I have seen an old manuscript Agreement, in 
which are laid down the principles on which the church shall 
be built, and the rules by which the congregation shall be 
governed, to which his name is signed in his own hand. It 
is a truly Christian document. Its date is March 17, 1745.
