PREFACE 

At the suggestion of ni}- grandmother, she having presented 
ine with a few manuscripts containing the earhest availahle rec- 
ords of the first and second generations, whicli had been coni])iled 
by my grandfather, Jolin M. Mast, deceased, and with a few 
friends, Mas^, by name, who are descendants of Bishop Jacob 
Mast, they being greatly interested in the work, and having work- 
ed on this history at (UlTerent times, they kindly offered to supply 
me with what they had secured, I consented to undertake this 
work, and thu> began to C(imi)ile a liistorv of the ^^last familv. 

The work was commenced in the spring of 1907. The fam- 
ily i> an old one, originally from Switzerland. 

I have made it my earnest endeavor to make the work as 
comjjlete as possible. In some instances, however, the records 
are incomplete, owing to the lack of interest in the work by some 
of the descendants, who failed to respond to communications ask- 
ing f(jr infoi-mation. However, I acknowledge myself greatly 
indebteil to many of the friends who manifested a lively interest 
in the work, for their kind favors in furnishing information for 
the same. More prominent among those who gave me much as- 
sistance are the following: Harvey Hostetler, Council Bluffs, la.; 
Hervey Schnell, Millersburg, O. ; Elhanen Zook, Downingtown, 
I'a. : I. II. .Mast, Topeka, Ind., who has since passed to his re- 
ward; David Mast, Millersburg, (3.; Frank j\Iast, Urbana, O. ; 
Morton L. Montgomery, 36 N. 6th St., Reading, Pa., author of 
"Historical and r>iogra])hical Annals of Berks County, Pennsyl- 
vania." 



LIST OF EXPLANATIONS AND ABBREVIATIONS 

In the preparation of this work it will be observed that all 
the descendants are recorded as near as possible in the regular 
order of birth, from the oldest to the youngest, each generation 
being marked consecutively from first to last. 

Beginning with the first (1) ancestor. Bishop Jacob Mast, 
-all his children are named in the order of birth and to whom 
they were married. Then follows his oldest son John ]\Iast, 
married to Alary Kurtz. See their family. 

Number (2) second generation, following the word "genera- 
lion" is the figure number (1) for the record of the father of 
John Mast's family. See family number (1). Then follows 
the oldest son Jacob Mast (third generation) and his children 
(fourth generation) next John, being the oldest, who was married 
to Sarah Dupold is followed down to the last of his descendants. 
Then the second in order of birth of the third generation, and so 
on until the end of the entire branch of John Mast of the second 
generation is reached. (2) Magdalena M'ast, married to Christ- 
ian Zook. See their family number 408. On the line with the 
word, "second generation," is the number 408, for the index num- 
ber of the family ; then following the word "generation" is the 
figure (1) for the record of Alagadalena (Mast) Zook's father's 
family; see his family number (1). All families are numbered 
and recorded in the same form for this family history. On the 
right hand of the word "generation" is the number of their 
father's family record. 

Where marriages occur between members of the connection, 
the husband generally carries the record. In all such cases a 
numbered reference is placed at the end of the record, giving 
name and marriage of the wife.

INTRODUCTION 

The besL lessons of our lives are those we learn from actual 
experience. 

History holds up to our view the wisdom as well as the fol- 
lies, the good as well as the bad acts of men who have lived be- 
fore us. 

From the experience and the necessities of the men of the 
past we learn how knowledge develops and how men make pro- 
gress in arts, science and general intelligence. 

The world's history is a record of events that have taken 
place in the development and progress of nations, tribes and peo- 
ples that have inhabited the earth since time began. 

While arts, science, philosophy, inventions, education, litera- 
ture, politics, religion, social science, war and the works of na- 
ture have all contributed to the records of history, by far the 
greater portion of history, by far the greater portion of the 
world's written history has been drawn from the events associated 
with war and politics. 

Writers of history seem to have taken a special interest in 
recording and bringing before the mmds of the people the glory 
of human strife, and in honoring and applauding those who have 
distinguished themselves in scenes of carnage and the destruction 
of human life. 

Daniel Webster said, in one of his last great speeches : 
"There is still wanting a History which shall trace the progress 
of social life, in the intercourse of man with man, the advance of 
arts, the various changes in the habits and occupations of indi- 
viduals, and improvements in domestic life." 

We shovdd rejoice for a History of Firesides by learning 
how our ancestors in their houses, were fed, and lodged, and 
clothed, and what were their daily employments, also to know 



12 MAST FAMILY HISTORY. ' 

mure of the changes which took place from age to age in the 
homes of our Swiss and German ancestors, who were the pure 
material of the Teutonic nation; being stern, sterling and frugal. 

The memorable Henry Clay of Kentucky, bore them this 
testimony, in the United States Senate, 1832 : "The honest, pa- 
tient and industrious German readily unites with our people, es- 
tablishes himself upon some of our fat lands, fills capacious barns^ 
and enjoys in tranquility fruits which diligence gathers around 
him.'' 

Never before have people been more inquisitive and dili- 
gent in investigating the study of their ancestry than at this time. 

Comparatively few of the many millions of the inhabitants 
of the United States know anything about their ancestors, or 
when their forefathers came to this country. 

Though men are very prone, at the present day, to repeat 
what was long ago said. If we had lived in the days of our fa- 
thers, we would not have permitted their bones to fall into their 
graves and buried out of sight, unmarked, unnumbered and un- 
sung. With but few exceptions however, the same may be said 
to the generations now living that was said to the scribes and 
Pharisees, "As your fathers did, so do ye." 

Ikit it is a matter of congratulation that some are turning 
attention to family genealogy, which requires great labor and 
time to compile one of this kind, enough may be found to show in 
whose loins the members of the same great famil\- reposed over 
a century ago. 

While this book contains biographical sketches of soldiers 
and of others who have no special regard for religion and re- 
ligi(jus principles, and of some of whom it may indeed be said 
that they have lived "without (jod in the world,'' yet the large 
majority of them are men who have been identified with the 
peaceful doctrines of the Gospel of Christ, men of more decided 
religious views, and who were devoted and fully consecrated to 
the teachings of the word of God, who suffered much for con- 
science' sake, and yet remained faithful, men who followed their 
Lord through evil report and through good report and who made 



MAST FAAIILY HISTORY 13 

it a principle of their lives never to do anything to the injury of 
their fellowmen. 

We should he glad that a history of the "quiet people of the 
land" is to be brought before the public mind, or we may say, we 
are glad that a number of histories of this class of people are 
(before) being brought before the pubhc, who are known to be 
earnest, devoted, faithful heroes that inake up the bone and sinew 
of a nation, in their daily toil, on the farm, in the work shop, in 
the home and in their religious bearing, form another aspect of 
life which must necessarily be brought out in order to show what 
the people really are, and this is what a book of this kind will 
do. 

Yet we should learn to hold family histories within certain 
bounds, knowing that they are useful; serve as a good purpose. 
Many of the lineal descendants of some progenitor have been 
dispersed abroad and become estranged, if not oblivious, to each 
other. Some genealogy or family record may be found, the history 
written up and by this means the scattered members Idc brought 
into touch with each other. 

In the prophetic and messianic ages genealogies proved very 
useful. By referring to them the truth of the Scriptures have 
been established, especially in the descent of Christ as the Messiah. 

But many of the Jews use their genealogies simply as a 
mef.ns to feed their vanity and make a display of their lineage. 
Even in this day some people delight in boasting about noted 
ancestry. The newly converted Jew was inclined to boast con- 
cerning his ancestry and consider himself superior to his Gentile 
brother who had no record of his ancestry. 

Sects, societies, tribes, races, families and individuals are 
frequently inclined to make use of the same material as that used 
by ihe Pharisee of old. 

Thank God that He no longer visits the iniquities of tin; 
fathers down to the fourth generation. See Heb. 8:12. 

Evil habits and characteristics are brought down by nature 
through heredity and not by the Lord. Every man is judged 
according to his own works. Re\'. 20:13. A covenant has been 



14 AFAST FAMIT.Y IffSTORY 

established on better promises Heb. 8:6. All who do his com- 
mandments have a right to the tree of life. 

Let us take no credit because of achievements made by our 
relatives in past generations, neither discredit your ancestry if 
they have not left a marked influence for good as you are not 
responsible for their failings. 

."■Similar instances ma\- \)v discoNcred in the lineage of all 
of us if we were able to unfold and read the scrolls containing 
the lives of human souls in every age. 

We all need to pray that Clod may direct our lives, leading 
us to higher planes of Christian living. It takes more than length 
of days to constitute a good old age, and therefore let our memor- 
ies be stored with good things, so that we are prepared for the 
winter of life. 

I.ec us never indulge in idleness for we are held accountable 
to ( jod for all our gifts. A marred or a lost day anywhere along 
the years may lead to loss or even sore misfortune afterward. 
"Some things God gives often. The seasons return again and 
again, and the flowers change with the months ; but the bright 
days of youth come twice to none." Thus each period in life has 
its own closing, its last hour, in which work is ended, whether 
well done or neglected. Indeed, we may say the same of each 
day ; its end is the closing of a definite season through which we 
can never pass again. 

What a fortunate thing it is that we measure time by days, 
weeks and months! Three hundred and si.xty-five days, fifty- 
two weeks, twelve months, tlic)' go spinning by ever more swiftly 
when childhood is left l)elnnd. 

The years are growing constantly fuller of interest in this 
amazing twentieth century. 'I'here are many still living who re- 
member vividly the difficulties of travel to and fro, the length of 
ocean voyages and the time one had to wait for news if a loved one 
living several States distant, was ill. Journeys then took an en- 
tire day, which now would be very comfortably covered by an 
express train in the course of a morning; when it cost six cents 
to send an ordinary letter ; wdien children were taught how to fold 
letters so that a space might be left for the address, envelopes 



MAST FAMILY HISTORY 15 

being still unknown ; when wax tapers, tallow candles or sperm 
oil furnished our means of lighting the home ; when telegraph 
and the telephone were mere dreams in the brain of an inventor ; 
when motor cars were unthinkable and the mention of a flying 
machine stirred practical folk to derision, one cannot but fancy 
that life. was full of inconveniences. We are very fortunate in 
being dwellers on the earth in a period brim full of agreeable 
excitement and vibrating with ardent energy. Yet, as human 
nature remains much the same throughout successive generations, 
there is a strong probability that the essentials that make for 
happiness are little altered in the present and compare quite 
favorably, on the whole, with those which obtained in the past. 
Years come and years go, marriage ceremonies are performed 
and the sweet, old story of love, faith and hope is told over and 
over from s'ea to sea. Children are born and in their tiny hands 
they hold a treasure that cannot be computed on a commercial 
balance sheet. 

The essentials are the same in every age, contentment, honor, 
integrity, a good name, the love of home and a home to be glad in. 

May the history of our lives be made sublime by that form of 
life which will develop within us a good strong character, making 
us grow more godlike and engage our thoughts more and more 
to that which is divine.

FIRST GENERATION 



Life Sketch of Bishop Jacob ^vlast 



Bishop Jacob Mast was born in 1738 in Switzerland, Europe, 
of Swiss parents. He immigrated to America an orphan boy in 
company with his four sisters and younger brother John, all 
were in care of their benevolent uncle Johannes Mast, whom we 
have no record of his remaining days in this country, by tradition 
he was an aged widower or bachelor, and was presumably buried 
on the farm now owmed by ]Mr. George D. Fahrenbach of Penn 
Twp., Berks Co., Pa. The old cemetery is in a dilapidated condi- 
tion, by which a new barn has been erected, almost covering the 
whole burial plot. 




The above is a true tracing of the names Johannes Mast, Andreas 
and Michael Holly as written on the original Immigrant List- Now on

18 AIAST FAMILY HISTORY 

'ilif party had sailed from Rotterdam in the ship Brother- 
hood. John Tliompson. Captain, lanchnt,' in Philadelphia, Pa., on 
X<»v. 3. 1750. They selected their home near the site of the Blue 
Mountains, tradition says. All other early Amish ^Mennonites 
formeil their first settlement in America at this place, which was 
known for ncarl\- a century a> the "Northkill congregation." The 
early members had located in Heidelberg, Lower Heidelberg, 
North Heidleberg, Penn, Bern, Upper Bern, Center, 
L'pper Tulpehocken and Jefferson townships, Berks Co., Pa. 
The majority had lived in the vicinity of the Schuylkill River 
between Irish Creek and Xorthkill, where they had opened out 
farms, l-'rom 1734 to 1764 and even at a later period the settle- 
ment was exposed and almost exterminated by the torch, hatchet 
and scalping knife of the savages, and their midnight assault and 
slaughter."' !Iun(h-eds fell victims to tlie relentlessly cruel 
savages, along the lilue mountains south and north of it, and 
along the Susquehanna, as far north as Penn's Creek. Among 
the massacred were many Germans — more than three hundred 
in all. including such as Hochstetler, ]\Iiller, Hartman. Hellman 
and .*>chleich whicli are family names popularly known in this 
history. Bishop Jacob Mast and his new life companion and 
father-in-law, Michael Holly, wiio had immigrated to America 
on tlie same vessel witli the remaining members of the Mast 
family had now resided nearly ten years in the district of the 
Xorthkill congregation of Amish Mennonites. Wdiile thus in 
1760 they were attacked by Indians and forced to seek another 
as}lum from persecution by settling in Conestoga A'allev, on a 
fertile tract of land forming the watershed between the Schuyl- 
kill ri\er and the few larger tributaries of the beautiful Cones- 
toga Creek, which name l)ears the signification of an Indian tribe, 
while on its banks are still found numerous Indian relics, such 
as darts and tomahawks. 

A warrant was granted to Bishop Jacob ]\last and a certain 
Jolin Holly, Xov. 19, 1764, and the latter on Apr. 13, 1769 
lawfully (Hscharged all the rights and half i)art of the land to 
the former. The tract contained 170 acres and an allowance of 
six jjcr cent for roads which was situated partly in the counties of 



:\TAST FAMILY HISTORY 19 

Uerks and Chester. It was purchased from Samuel ]\Iartin of 
Tredyfrin township, Chester Co., Pa., for £325. 

On this tract of land Bishop Jacob Mast erected a com- 
fortable log- farm house, close to a lusty spring which flows 
directly from a stratum of limeless sandstone. 

His brother John wandered through the wilderness to Ran- 
dolph Co., N. C, which the reader may notice a brief account of 
his lineal descendants contained in the latter part of this volume 
and also a sketch of his sister Miagdalena. The other three sisters 
are supposed to have died unmarried and buried near the spot 
of our progenitor, representing marked graves without inscrip- 
tions. 

Here the once and again persecuted and oppressed Swiss 
family, separated from friends and much, that makes life agree- 
able, hoped to unmolestedly begin the world anew. Here, sur- 
rounded on all sides by several clans of Indians they located in 
the gloomy, silent shades of a virgin forest, wdiose undisturbed 
solitude was yet uncheered by the murmurs of the honey bee, or 
the twitterings of the swallow, those never-failing attendants upon 
the woodman's ax. For the hum and warblings of those, they had 
not only the shout and song of the tawny sons of the forest, but 
also the nocturnal bowlings of the ever watchful dog, baying at 
the sheeny queen of night as she moved stately on, reflecting her 
borrowed light. By way of variety, we imagine their ears were 
nightly greeted by the shrill, startling whoop of the owl or the 
crickets wail in the contiguous thickets. 

Presumably the IMast family were the first Amish ]\Ienno- 
nite settlers to establish and organize a congregation of its kind in 
Conestoga valley which was the third settlement and the first 
permanent one in America. It is still known as tlie "Conestoga 
congregation." 

Bishop Jacob Mast was elected to his office in 1788. was 
well educated for the times, and was a man of extensive influence 
He always visited the various congregations on horseback, riding 
through dense forests, over great mountains and fording swelling 
streams, in which his life was also endangered l)y the red man of 
the forest, "^'et he was in every way adapted to this situation.

His preparation was of the bc^t order; and being undoubtedly 
driven from liis native land by religious persecution, he must 
have rejoiced in finding such a ])leasing situation, such inviting 
conditions. He knew the suffering of his forefathers through the 
days ot mart_\rdom, bis uncertain condition in bis native land, 
and thus a sense of well-being induced his uncle Johannes to 
leave with him and his brother an*! four sisters. 15ut in leaving 
the valk'\> and the beautiful mountain scenery of Switzerland so 
dear to him, he came to possess and enjoy a country equally fa- 
vored for beauty, for health and for profit ; and it was more 
liigbly favored in respect to a condition which was to him more 
important than all others combined — freedom. 

He was sound, hopeful and trustful in religious convictions, 
which had litted him admirablv for bis vocation. 

He made manv visits to his congregations, at least semi-

annually, of which there were three located in Somerset and Cam- 
bria counties, Pennsylvania, known as "Gladyes,"" "Conemaugh" 
and "Castleman's River," two in Chester county, Pennsylvania, 
(called Chester Valley and Compassville), two in Lancaster coun- 
ty, Pennsylvania (called Conestoga and Pequeau), and three in 
Berks Co., Pennsylvania — one in Cumru, one in ^Maiden Creek 
and the third in Bern township (called Northkill). 

The Mast famil}^ in America have sprung from an ancestry 
wliose lines are well marked as far as they can be traced. These 
lines however are mainly found within the limits of agricultural 
industry, genuine morality and sincere earnestness in the per- 
formance of the duties of the Christian religion, coupled with a 
firm faith in its saving power. There are only several incidents 
where fame of arms-bearing or military skill was ever attached 
to any bearing the name of Mast. 

The records of American history are practically silent and 
Iiave little knowledge of the name. But the records of the Chris- 
tian Church, especially of that branch of it known as the Amish 
^lennonite Church, are alive with the names of pioneers and he- 
roes in the several generations of ]\Iasts that have lived since the 
establishment of the Church in America, First and foremost 
among these stands the name Jacob Mast, whom fancy pictures as 
a tall man, having a large and well-proportioned frame, very mus- 
cular, with light hair and blue eyes, a face indicating great firm- 
ness and resolution, and a body capable of enduring great hard- 
ships. Plow nearly this fancied representation of him may cor- 
respond with truth, cannot be said. But of this there is proof, 
that he was of great mental and moral force, practiced simplicity 
in attire, being a faithful and zealous servant for his Master and 
<li(l much to advance the interests of his church. 

In the year 1808 he gave up the wonderfully busy life when 
in the same year his neighbors carried his body out of his old 
home and buried it in a quiet spot on the broad acres he had 
tended and loved. His grave is marked with a carved sandstone 
bearing inscription near the northwest corner of the wall of what 
is known as Pine Grove Cemetery. His wife, Magdalene Holly, 
died Oct. 26, 1820, aged 80 years, and is buried by his side.

he was noted as one of the foremost farmers of his communitv. 
having exerted a marked influence upon the future development 
of Conestoga Valley, Pa., both in teniixiral and spiritual afifairs. 
He provided for educational advantages by erecting a small 
country school house on the southwest corner of his farm. The 
school house was first opened as a private school and later leased 
by the Caernarvon School Board of Lancaster Co., Pa. In 1885 
the building was changed to a dwelling house, but it was reuKjved 
about ten years later. M;r. Mast also built two large Lancaster 
County barns with gable ends, built of stone, having erected one

America, arriving in I'hilatlelphia Septenil)cr 9, 1749. From here he 
went to Berks County, Pennsylvania, where he bought a tract of 404 
acres of land, and continued his former occupation of farming. He 
was twice married. His first wife died in Europe. His second wife 
(Catharine Ruegy) was his faithful companion during his labors in 
America. By the first wife he had one son; by the second two sons 
and one daughter. 

In early life he united with the Amish Mennonites, and was 
*ifterward called to serve the church as minister and bishop. He was 
strictly plain in his appearance, rigid as a disciplinarian, strong in de- 
fense of the faith, and tireless as a worker, both temporally and 
spiritually. He became a shepherd of the first Amish Mennonite con- 
gregation in America, and ranks as one of the leading men in the 
church at that time. He lived the length of two ordinary lives — from 
1703 to 1749 in Europe, and from 1749 to 1786 in America. He became 
a pious ancestor of a now numerous family in America. All persons 
liearing the name Hertzler whose names are recorded in this history 
are lineal descendants of Bishop Hertzler. A complete genealogical 
family register of the Hertzler family of America was compiled in 
i8<S4 bv the late deceased John Hertzler of Port Royal, Juniata Co., 
Pa.

*Lena Swartzentruber is a grand-daughter of Caspar Swartzen- 
truber, the progenitor of an honored Lancaster County family in 
Pennsylvania, whose members -have been actively engaged for many 
years in agricultural pursuits. Caspar Schwartzentruber was born in 
the vicinity of Fraindsheim. Palatine, a province of France, now 
Bavaria in the German empife, and immigrated to America from there. 
He sailed Sept. i6, 1827, from Amsterdam, in the ship "Henry Clay," 
Captain Parker, and arrived in Baltimore, Md., Nov. 27, 1827. From 
there he went to East Whiteland Twp., Chester Co., Pa., having first 
gone to Philadelphia, Pa., in search of some friends of his sect. He 
tinally came to a market place, where he eventually inquired of an inn- 
keeper about a certain Christian Zook, who was living some distanpe 
from the city of Philadelphia. The inn-keeper directed him to the 
desired parly and then this weary pedestrian in a strange country 
proceeded on his journey, covering a distance of about eighteen miles. 
A few miles from Paoli he passed a kind-hearted Quaker of whoin 
he inquired again about the location of Christian Zook, who is the 
great great grandfather of the writer. The Quaker replied, "Just 
continue on your course until you meet a tall mighty oak, spreading 
its branches over the highway near a lane to your right side, which 
will lead you to your destination." 

Flere Caspar Schwartzentruber, being destitute and homeless,^ 
now formed acquaintance with this generous old farmer-preacher, 
Christian Zook, who gave him employment for several years. 

Tradition tells us of an incident in which Caspar Schwartzen- 
truber, after his arrival at the preacher's colonial mansion, told him of 
a family including a widow with six children whose husband died on 
the sea, while making the voyage in the same vessel, and that they 
are anxiously waiting on him to find some friend who would provide

shared to immigrants, he drove speedily to Philadelphia with four 
horses hitched to a large covered Conestoga wagon, bringing the 
family to his home, where he provided them with food and shelter 
for three months. They lived on the loft of the spring-house, which

born in July, 1793, at Weinsheim, Germany, and died Jan. 15, i<S6q, at 
the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Magdalena Hartz, Morgantown, 
Pa. Among the children born to this union, of which all were born 
at Illbach except the youngest, were; viz., Daniel, b. Xov. 2, 1818; 
Elizabeth, b. Jan. 16, 1820 ; Magdalena, b. Apr. 28, 1821: Mary, b- 
Dec. 30, 1822 (died on the sea, Sept. 8, 1827); John, b. June 24, 1824 
(died Feb. 18, 1847): Peter, b. Mar. 6, 1826; Jacobina. b. June 2^, 1827. 

As this family was making the voyage to America, they proposed 
to settle in Canada, where a number of their relatives by name of 
Nafzinger had located some years prior. The family has become 
prolific, though but few can be found bearing the original name, 
Nafzinger. They are in general a strong, hearty and robust race, 
leading temperate, moral and Christian lives.

72 ^lAST FAMILY HISTORY 

lie was a highly respected citizen of Conestoga Valley. He 
began his career in life as a young man of little means. On Jan. 
13, 1822, he married a young lady from the vicinity of Mohnton, 
Berks Co., Pa., known as Hannah M'iller, who was a daughter of 
Christian ]\Iiller, an Amish Mennonite minister in Comru Twp., 
Berks Co., Pa. The young couple began farming at the place 
which is now known as the old John M. Mast homestead. He 
tells us that he found himself first on a large tract of land, which 
had been uncultivated and remained unproductive for nearly four 
years ; the tract also contained neither a dwelling house nor barn. 
But as a typical Pennsylvanian of Swiss stock, having possessed 
a thrifty and economizing disposition, he gradually assvmied 
enough of means to furnish him and his family a good livelihood. 

A certain German historian wrote of recent years that the 
farms owned among the Swiss and Germans of Pennsylvania are 
often found to have descended from father to son for more than 
a hundred years, in many cases untouched by a mortgage, and 
they are among the most skillful and successful farmers in the 
world. 

Travelers on the Pennsylvania Railroad are often surprised, 
as they pass through Lancaster County at the enormous size 
and peculiar construction of the barns. New Englanders, com- 
ing from a rocky soil, where all the crops that are ever gathered 
can be stored in an ordinary stable, are always very much 
amused, and think it a foolish waste of money for a farmer to 
build a liarn live times as large as his house. They are not 
aware that they are passing through one of the garden spots of the 
earth, and if they knew the nature of its inhabitants they would 
have no fears of his spending a dollar or enclosing a square foot 
of space that was not absolutely necessary for the housing of his 
enormous crops. 

Mr. ]\rast united witli the Amish Mennonite church and also 
his life c()mi)anion; they both remained faithful and active mem- 
bers until death. In his last conscious moments he was faintly 
heard singing a favorite German hymn. The remains were laid 
to rest in the Pine Grove Cemeterv, near Elverson. Pa. To this

Daniel Miller's family descendants are a noble minded, 

worthy class of people. Those living in Berks Co., Pa., mainly 
speak the German language and in religion the majority arc- 
either German Lutheran or Reformed, being temperate, law- 
abiding citizens, free from vicious habits, drunkeness and im- 
moral tendencies. 

The name Miller in America has become just as i)opular 
as Smith or Jones. See Footnote of Fam. No. 1395 for a sketch 
of Moses Aliller, who emigrated to America in 1817 from Alsace, 
Germany. Miss Estella Miller of Dundee, R. R. No. 1, O., writes 
that her ancestors when they first settled in America were also 
of German nationality. She is a daughter of Amos Miller, whn 
was a son of Isaac Miller, who was the son of Moses P>. Miller, 
who was the son of Benedict Miller, whose brothers were John, 
Henry and Jacob Miller ; who lived in Ohio. Their father was 
Jacob ]\Iiller, the son of John Miller, who emigrated from 
Europe. Mrs. D. H. Yoder of Johnstown, R. R. No. 3, is in pos- 
session of considerable data concerning tlie above family; also

^Christian Zug when his first wife died visited Germany and tluTC

Feesebach. These were children that she had with her first and 
second husbands. Christian Zug after his marriage with .Anna 
returned to Chester Co., Pa., and brought her sons with 
him. 

'Christian Zug by tradition was the son of John Zug. who was tiie lineal 
descendant of Hans Zaug, (See L D. Rupp's .Martyrs Mirror on 
page I02I for Hans Zaug and on page 1023 for the action of Coun- 
cil at Berne), of Switzerland. In religious faith he was a Menno- 
nite preacher. He was incarcerated in A. D. 1659, in the Depart- 
ment of Berne, Switzerland, with six teachers and elders of the 
same faith, under jurisdiction of the Zwinglian Reformed Churcii.

They determined to lay hands on them and especially on the 
pastors and elders of the Church in order thereby to excite greater 
terror among the innocent members of the scattered fold of 
Christ. Seven of the teachers and leading elders of the Church 
were arrested and assigned to distinct prisons, namely: Uly Baum- 
garten, Anthony. Hinnelberg, Jegly Schlebach, Hans Zaug, 
Uly Baumgartner, Christen Christians and Rhode Peters^ 
They were kept for some time at very hard labor, and supplied 
with bad food — spelt and rye — to save cost. Besides this they 
were greatly reviled, scorned and calumniated on account of their 
religious faith. It was at first asserted that they should be kept in- 
this manner for life, to which fate they had surrendered them- 
selves in patience and resigned themselves to the grace of God,, 
but when it was ascertained that such measures had not the de- 
sired effect of shaking these people in their faith and religion, they 
fixed upon an other plan in Council in Berne, namely, that they 
should choose one of the following conditions: First, to go with 
them to church, or second, to be perpetually consigned to the 
galleys t as slaves, or third, to die by the hands of the 
executioner. A hard choice indeed, for the first concerns the soul, 
and the last two, the bod^^ They remained incarcerated until in 
December A. D. 1671, when the States General and a certain Re- 
gent of the cities of Netherland and Holland petitioned the lords 
and council at Berne, Switzerland, for the liberation of the prison- 
ers. They were liberated on the condition, namely, that they 
should leave the country and not return without special per- 
mission. They were all released upon the request of Lord Beatus- 
and conveyed to Basle and there delivered to their brethren and 
friends, with whom they departed to the Department of Doerm- 
stein, in Germany. Mosheim says that the Mennonites after- 
having been in a long uncertain and precarious situation, obtained 
a fixed and unmolested settlement in the united province of

for them by William. Prince of Orange (See Evert's and Peck's 
history of Lancaster Co., Pa., on page 326, or C. D. Davies' history 
of Holland, Europe,) the glorious founder of the Belgic liberty. 
This illustrious chief, who acted from principle in allowing liberty 
of conscience and worship of Christians of different denomina- 
tions, was moreover engaged by gratitude to favor the Menno- 
nites, who had assisted him in the year A. D. 1672, with a com- 
fortable sum of money when his coffers were almost exhausted. 
It was resolved in full Council at Berne on Oct. 11, A. D- 167 1, 
that such male persons that were 3'oung and strong should also 
be sent to the galleys, as six who were sent some time before. 
When Lord Beatus, of Berne, Switzerland, observed the resolu- 
tion of the Council at Berne, he was excited to compassion and 
went to the authorities and requested them to delay the trans- 
portation of the prisoners until he would go to the members 
of their society in Alsace, France, and ascertain whether they 
would bail the prisoners, for the performance of the condition, 
namely, that they would leave the country and not return willmul 
special permission. Their friends in Alsace immediately accepted 
the condition and made the engagement with Lord Beatus in 
writing, whereupon he promised on his part to exert the utmost 
of his influence with the authorities of Berne, in the expectation 
that he could prevail on them to deliver the prisoners to Basle to 
their friends, and that they would obtain a residence for them 
in other countries.

seventy-one pounds. 

In 1784 he deeded to his son Jacob, one hundred and four 
acres of land in West Whiteland Twp., Chester Co., Pa. ; the price 
was nine hundre 1 and eighty pounds. Tradition says Moritz 
Zug was named after Mourice of Nassau as a token of gratitude 
for the kindness he manifested to the Zug ancestors and other 
Mennonites when imprisoned in 1659 to December, 1771, for 
their religious faith in Switzerland.

MAST FAAIILY TTrSTORY 103 

Johannes Zug removed from Berks Co., Pa. to Honeybrook 
Twp., Chester Co., Pa. ; d. May, 1790. Tie formed a settlement of 
Amish Mennonites, which tradition says, was composed of a few 
famihes by name of Miller, Zook, Fisher, etc. They were former- 
ly members of the Chester Valley Amish Mennonitc church, near 
Alalvern, Pa. An old Amish Mennonite graveyard is located at 
the corner of a farm, situated about one mile North of the present 
site of Honey Brook, Pa., or nearly one fourth of a mile north- 
west from the Poplar Grove school house. There are no tonil) 
stones to mark the graves of these early pioneers, but is enclosed 
by a substantial wall, with dimensions 4 feet high, 4<S feet long 
and 18 feet wide. The material used in building the wall was 
hauled by David ^last of Fam. 108. 

His family Bible, with the records of his children's l)irths, 
was printed in 1534. No families are recorderl in this Bible 
previous to his family. It was bought in Cherrick, Switzerland, 
and was in possession of Jacob C. Hertzler, near Allei'isville, 
Mifflin Co., Pa. in 1884. 

Joseph Zug arrived in l^hiladelphia. Pa.. Aug. 1.^, 17.^0, in 
the ship "Royal Union," Clement Nicholson, Master, from 
Rotterdam, Holland, last from Cowes. 

Jacob Zuch arrived in Philadelphia, Sept. 30, 17.^4. in the 
ship "Richard and Mary," John Moore, Master, from Rotterdam, 
last from Cowes. 

All the autographs of the above Zugs were written when 
they declared their fealty to the province of Pennsylvania, and the 
King of Great Britain and his successors, and are variously 
spelled. Zug is an ancient name in Switzerlan 1. There is a can- 
ton, river, lake, and town of that name in Switzerland. In 1884 
the town contained three thousand inhabitants. On tlic 4th of 
Mar., 1435, in that part of the town of Zug nearest to tlie lake a 
frightful noise was heard succeeded l)y total disappearance of two 
streets with part of the town wall which sunk into the lake. 

In 1594 a similar calamity occurred, and in 17*^5 a great part 
of the town was destroyed by hre. Zug is so ancient that its 
origin is past record. It is supposed to have been one of tlie towns 
destroyed by the Helvetian inhal)itants nicntionc I in Caesar's

282 THIRD GENERATION 2 

7. Daniel !Mast, born in 1803, was for many years one of 
Conestoga Valley's most prominent and influential citizens. He 
was a minister of the Amish Mennonite church and cultivated 
a fine farm of sixty acres. His early intellectual training was re- 
ceived in the private schools of Morgantown, Pa., and afterwards 
continued in agricultural pursuits dm-ing his whole life. He was 
married to Rachael Blank wdio was a daughter of John Blank. 
She was born in 1805, died in 1873. Soon after his marriage 
he was elected a minister of the Amish Mennnnitt' cliurch and 
preached for several congregations. Llis total membership 
numbered about one hundred souls. Lie visited the different 
charges regularly every few Sunflays according to a fixed 
schedule; every four weeks he visited the congregatii)ns in I Jerks 
Co., in the vicinitv of Reading. 

Undoubtedly there were many all through these sections who 
watched for the approach of the faithful old horse "Jolly," know- 
ing that with him came one wdiose sympathy in time of trouble

was always ready, and whose advice and instruction had made 
many a path straight for those on whom life had laid heavy 
burdens hghter. 

He was well fitted in every way for a ministerial life, pos- 
sessing a pleasing and winning personality, and an eloquence that 
made the preaching of the Word effective. He died at his 
residence on Aug. 18. 1883, aged 80y. and 11m. 

The children were all born in Caernarvon Twp., Berks Co., 
as follows : 

( 1 ) John P. ]\Iast. m. to Anna Zook. 

(2) Sarah ]\Iast, m. to David Stoltzfus.

throat June 21, 1874. 

Family head, member Amish Mennonite Church. 

Bishop David Plank, of Bellefontaine, O., related a few years 
ago from the pulpit, that Daniel Mast told him after his ordina- 
tion, nearly forty years ago, of a severe trial that seemed to de- 
feat every design regarding the duties of his calling. He con- 
tinued bv sa}ing that, 'T finally went to the mountain and there 
prayed earnestly to my Lord and Redeemer to renew my strength 
and courage. IMy prayer was answered, which brought about a 
new epoch in mv life, and I possessed a greater submission to the 
Divine Will."

liis native locality. After completinj^ his literary training, he hc- 
gan, early in life, in agricultural pursuits. He was united in 
marriage to Anna Zook,* who was born Jan. 12, 1828; dieil 
July 4, 1903, to which union was no issue. During 
his thirties he was ordainetl an Amish Alennonite minister and 
later elected bishop. He also in connection operated several large 
farms, and a flour rolling mill which is now owned and operated 
Ijy the ]\Iorgantown jNIilling Co. Bishop Mast labored in season 
.and out of season. He thoroughly understood the j^eople, and 
they had full confidence in his advice and judgment in temporal 
as well as spiritual afifairs. He was sympathetic and considerate 
of every one with whom he came in contact. His amiable dis- 
position and even temperament made him one of the most 
approachable of men. His kindliness of manner commended him 
as a model preacher, and there was never any friction between 
him and his congregation. His members believed in him as no 
other man and he was held by them in the greatest affection as 
a counsellor, preacher and friend. He was amiable, charitable 
and always good natured, and his dear life companion always 
made the home a continual place of sunshine where hundreds of 
visitors were always welcome. There were few men who en- 
joyed a wider acquaintance throughout the adjoining counties of 
his own than Bishop Mast. As a preacher he was practical and 
•eloquent. He drew his lessons from every day life, and his 
sermons were based on old-fashioned Gospel truths, and ran 
in a channel of thought that all could understand and at all times 
directed his hearers to prepare for the better land above. He 
addressed his people as a kind father would a child, and in this 
lay one of the sources of his popularity. He died June 11. 1888 
while walking through a field. His death came instantly from 
lieart failure. His name was for many years a household word 
through his entire section. Over one thousand people attended 
his funeral to pay the last tribute of respect for one who always 
showed a warm heart to all classes. The remains of Bishop Mast 
and his beloved wife were interred in Pine Grove Cemetery.

of Avhom were engaged in agricultural pursuits. He lived on the 
farm which is how known as the Gideon Zook farm; the barn 
was built by him in i8oo. His father Stephen Kauffman was born 
in Bern (now Upper Bern) township, Berks Co., Pa., who was 
the son of Stephen Kauffman Sr., who had been imprisoned with

(6) ISarbara Zook, b. Feb. 22, 182*), in the vicinity of Bear- 
town, Lancaster Co., Pa. She was never married and possesse.s 
a very clear and extensive memory of the past concerning the 
early members of the Mast family, with whom the writer had the 
privilege of having an interesting interview. \\'hile her place 
of abode is not permanent she resides at this writing at 450 E. 
Orange St., Lancaster, Pa. In 1881 she went to South Dakota 
and there purchased three quarters of a section of government 
land fur 81.50 per acre.. Slie sold it a^ain in l')00, lived in Kan., 



Jacob Mast, John Hertzler and others for refusing military 
service in the Revolutionary War. They were condemned to be 
shot but the sentence was never executed and the peace loving 
prisoners were set free. 

During a certain Indian assault on the early settlers, tradition 
tells us that Stephen Kauffman Sr., hurriedly took ofif his horses 
and rode to Baltimore, Md.. in this absence his wife was sudden- 
ly attacked by the Indians at the window of the typical log 
house. She boldly defended herself with an ax by chopping their 
hands, after which they immediateh' tied to the woods, screaming 
fearfull}'. 

The emigrant ancestor of this familj' is supposed to have been 
Jacob Kauffman who came to America on the ship "Phoenix," 
landing Sept. 15, 1749, with 550 other passengers from Zwei- 
brucken, Nassau, Wurtemberg and the Palatinate. He and two 
brothers located in Lancaster County, Pa., but the land there was 
not what he wanted, so he did not remain long. He did not want 
to undertake the work of clearing away the forests which then 
covered that region, and land which could be converted into 
meadows, to raise hay to feed his stock, seemed to him more 
desirable, so with one brother he came to Berks county, settling 
in Bern (now Upper Bern) township. He took up a large tract 
of land in the fertile valley at the foot of the Blue Mountain 
near the present site of St. Michael's Church, receiving a patent

b. Feb. 6, 1846; when fifteen years of age he became a member of 
the 79th, Pa. Vol. Infantry, having served three years in the 
company. He again after expiration of service re-enlisted and 
served until the close of the Civil War. Having then aspired to 
various pursuits, he finally embarked in the plumbing and tin- 
smith business at Ephrata. Pa., until 1888, when he removed to 
Lancaster, where he is at present holding the office of court- 
crier. Their children, born in Lancaster Co., are : 



for about seven huiKlred acres, part of which was meadow land, 
with an abundant water supply. He Iniilt a log house with a cellar 
adapted for defense against the Indians there being no opening 
which afforded an easy entrance, and an attack could be repelled 
by shooting from a window. 

The few settlers then in the vicinity suffered much from the 
treachery and depredations of the Indians, and they accordingly 
took their guns with them when they went to and from their 
work. This state of affairs continued from 1754 to 1764, but with 
all their precautions about one hundred settlers were killed, a 
brother of lacob Kauffman being among the number. 

There had been numerous emigrations of Kaufifmans during 
the colonial period and the name was variously spelled at the 
time they registered their names on the date of their arrival at 
Philadelphia. 

Rupp's 30000 names furnishes a list of nearl}- thirty men- Few 
of these were non-combatants belonging to sects as the Quakers, 
Dunkards, Mennonites and Amish Mennonites.

534 FIRST GENERATION 

Christian Schmucker, the ancestor of a large and representa- 
tive family of the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and 
Illinois, was a native of Switzerland, and crossed the ocean on 
the ship "St. Andrew," controlled by James Abercombic, which 
landed at Philadelphia, May 8, 1752. 

The name Schmucker has been spelled in four dififerent ways 
by the members of the same family, Smucker, Smoker, 
Schmucker and Smuker. When Christian Schmucker arrived he 
registered his name "Schmucker." He became one of the early 
pioneer settlers of his sect in America, known as the Amish 
Mennonites, who formed their first settlement in Hern (now 
Upper Bern) Twp., Berks Co., Pa. His descendants have become 
so numerously inter-married with the Masts, to say nothing 
of his belonging, as the first representative, of a long establislied 
family, that this book would be incomplete without mention of 
him and also a genealogical record of his early descendants. 

He was a farmer by occupation, exceedingly industrious and 
was known as a man of sterling qualities. During his life time 



212 AIAST FAMILY HISTORY 

there was little clear land in his locality and he often heard the 
howl of wolves in the forest around his primitive home, which 
later in life was superceded by a substantial house and barn, and 
was occupied by his descendants for five generations. In 1840 
his great grand-son, Isaac Smucker, a Dunkard preacher moved 
from the old homestead to Ashland County, Ohio. Frequently 
the old pioneer ancestor of this prolific family stood in fear of the 
Indians who still roamed the forests after the date of his settle- 
ment, and whose attacks endangered the lives and property of the 
hardy settlers. (See accoVint of Hochstetler massacre in footnote 
of F"am. No. 563.) His mortal remains were laid to rest in the 
old Amish Mennonite graveyard, in Comru township, 
and there, too, sleep scores of descendants of many noble pioneers. 
He was married to Catharine Hesster, who died Apr. 27, 1786. 
Among the children were : 

(1) John Schmucker, m. to Barbara Stoltzfus. — See her 

F's. Fam. No. 355. 

(2) Fanny Schmucker, m. to John Blank. 

(3) Peter Schmucker, m. to Margaret Kinzers.

The writer with sincere gratitude shall ever greatly acknowledge the assist- 
ance rendered by Rev. Harvey Hostetler of Councils Bluffs, la., who supplied 
the history of Barbara ]\Iast and her husband John Ilostetler, for insertion in 
this family history. 

Rev. Hostetler is about making arrangements to print a large history of his 
family. He has devoted many years to the formidable task in compiling the 
Hochstetler Family History in connection with William P. Hochstetler of Sugar 
Creek, O. 

The authors of the Mast arrd Hochstetler family histories have formed an 
intimate acquaintance by correspondence in December, 1908, and while they 
worked together on a few families and frequently furnished aid with 
suggestions pertaining to their respective lines of work, however to this writing 
they have not had the privilege of meeting face to face although their •meeting' 
has been frequently contemplated and a social correspondence shall undoubtedly 
exist in the future. 

Rev. Harvey Hostetler has been very successful with his compilation, and 
his clients can certainly enjoy the pleasure of an increase in their beneficent 
social influence among their relatives living in various parts of the world. He- 
was born Feb. 13, 1857, near Summit Mills, Pa., the son of Jonas Hochstetler 
and his wife Elizabeth Kretchman, who moved to Marshalltown. la., Apr. 14, 
1865. Graduated from the Marshalltown High School, 1876, from the State 
University of Iowa in 1881, and the Union Theological Seminary, New York, iii' 
1884. Pastor of Presbyterian Churches at Vail, Iowa, 1884-9, Sioux City, 1890-7,.

*Lehman Oliver Boyer, the son of George and Mary Christena 
(Kenner) Boyer was the son of Michael and Eve (Koons) 
Boyer. 

fThe Boyers have direct connection in name and history with the 
Gallic Boii, widely distributed over Rhine regions in the time of 
wandering of races, and particularly active between the fourth 
and second century before Christ. Julius Caesar conquered them 
in part about 58 B. C. Both the Bavarians and the Bohemians get 
their names from the Boii, though the Bohemians are not Boii 
descent. 

"Like other families, many of the Boyers, both in France and 
Germany, accepted the doctrines and consequences of the six- 
teenth century Reformation. In the complications that resulted 
from the revocation of the edict of Nantes by Louis XIV, king 
of France, in 1685 the Palatine was terribly devastated. Those 
who could escape Louis' fury found at last temporary refuge in 
parts of Germany, Holland and England. In the meantime, 
Penn, the proprietary governor of Pennsylvania, sympathizing 
with the refugees in Europe, helped to produce a veritable exo(his 
from Europe. Through his agents he made it known among 
refugees in Europe that he was ready to grant land possessions 
on easy terms in Pennsylvania, and that liberty of conscience 
was to be allowed there. Among these refugees were the Boyers.

About forty of them settled in Pennsylvania before 1775, some of

♦There are a half dozen or more distinct families in the United States 
bearing the name Mast, being variously spelled. — Maust, Mest, 
Moist or Mast. They are all of German and Swiss descent, but 
by far the larger number trace their line to the Swiss Father- 
land. 

Older and also present generations of the family to which this 
sketch is especially dedicated spelled the name Mast. The first 
representative of this family in America was Jacob Mast, who was 
imported from the Palatines in the ship Charming Polly of Lon- 
don, controlled by Capt- Charles Stedman, from Rotterdam, last 
from Plymouth, landing in Philadelphia on Oct. 8, 1837. 

John Mast, a son of Jacob, was born Apr. 23, 1749. He was 
known as a prominent citizen in the early history of Berks Co., 
Pa. On Apr. 6, 1773 he married Anna Staehle, who was born May 
24, 1753, daughter of Henry Staehle. Among the children born to 
this union, were: 

Henry, b. Jan. 22, 1774. Jacob, b. Apr- 20, 1775. Christian, b. 
July 24, 1777- Johannes, b. Oct. 2, 1779. Sarah, b. Apr. 19, 1781. 
Abraham, b May 14, 1783. Anna, b. Jan. 30, 1785. David, b. Nov. 
7, 1786. 

His long will may herewith be inserted in full as duplicated 
by his great-great-grandson, William E. Troutman from the 
document which is carefully preserved by the father of William 
E., known as Percival Troutman of Bernville, Pa. 

In the name of God Amen- I, John Mast, of the township 
of Upper Bern, in the county of Berks and State of Pa., being in 
perfect health and sound mind, memory and understanding 
(thanks be to God for the same), being mindful of my mortality, 
do make aind constitute this my last will and testament. 

First and principally, I recommend my immortal spirit to the 
Almighty God, who gave us hope of a joyful resurrection and my 
body to the earth (when it shall please God to separate my soul 
and body) to be buried in a decent and Christian like manner, 
at the discretion of my executors hereinafter mentioned, and to 
such worldly estate, wherewith it hath pleased God to help me, 
1 give and dispose therefore as follows: 

It is my will and I do order and direct that my beloved 
wife, Anna, after my decease, if she should survive me, shall have

1009 SECOND GENERATION 1 

4. Jacob Mast, born in 1768 in Caernarvon Twp., Berks 
Co., Pa., died in 1852 with infirmities of old age, at his permanent 
residence, known as the Petershime farm or formerly the Owen 
Good farm, located north of the Conestoga Tavern. He was 
educated in the old pay schools of the county and his early 
training was all along agricultural lines, and he devoted himself 
all his life to the cultivation of farms in Conestoga Valley, "his 
sterling integrity, good sense and unostentatious sincerity of 
purpose won for him a high place in the esteem of the people and 
he was frequently called upon to fill positions of honor and 
trust. 

Tradition tells us that he took part in laying the corner-stone 
of the new court house of Berks Co., Pa., at Reading, which was 
erected during the years of 1838, 1839 and 1840. 

He was well proportioned in stature weighing about one 
hundred and sixty pounds and had dark blue eyes. 

He was united in marriage to Barbara Kenege,* Ai)r. 22, 



*Barbara Kenege was a daughter of John Kenege, who was married 
to Dorothy Nafzger, a daughter of Matthias Nafzger, a native 
of Switzerland, Europe. 

Joseph K. Mast of Urbana, Ohio, who is a lineal descendant 
of :\Iatthias Nafzger is in possession of the emigrant ancestor's 
family Bible, which was purchased in Switzerland in 1687.

1792, who preceded him in death, and his daughter Leah then 
accompanied him hy attending to his household duties until he 
cahnly passed from earth at an unexpected hour, like the last 
flickering of a candle. He had just been lying on his couch for 
a few moments of rest after the noon hour. 

His mortal remains were laid to rest by the side of his 
dec'd companion in Pine Grove cemetery, where were buried his 
parents and scores of early pioneer settlers. Among the children 
born to this union, all on the old homestead are : 

(1) John Mast, m. to Elizabeth Trego.

wife, Phebe Ann Plank.

1010 THIRD GENERATION 1009 

1. John ]\Iast,* b. Oct. 29, 1793, in Caernarvon Twp., Berks 

*John ]\Iast moved in 1830 from Berks Co., Pa., to Champaign Co., 
Ohio. Prior to his removal to Ohio he taught in public schools 
southeastern Pa. Pie then bought a quarter of a section of good 
farm land in Champaign Co., O., at ten dollars per acre, without 
much money to invest in the land and his live stock and farming 
implements. 

The young man soon found himself in a financial struggle, as 
the markets for his farm products gave no large returns and it 
afforded no good means of transportation in those days. He hauled 
his wheat over the mud roads to Dayton, Ohio, for thirty-three 
cents per bushel. But as the country became more densely settled, 
the land began to increase in value and the farmer was given 
better sale for his products, as grain, butter, cheese, poultry and 
eggs; the roads also afforded better facilities for transportation. 
Mr. Mast who was a remarkable business man and a highly res- 
pected citizen, both in church and state affairs, soon began to 
clear off his debts and became one of the foremost farmers in his 
county in which he resided. In 1865 he retired from his farm 
of 320 acres which he divided into smaller tracts for his children, 
reserving 65 acres. 

He was a member of the board of education for 43 years, was 
a class leader in the M. E. church 54 years and served .48 years as 
steward and trustee.

1011 FOURTH GENERATION 1010 

1. Phineas Price Mast, b. Jan. 3, 1825, in Lancaster Co., 
Pa. ; residence when he died 403 West High St., Springfield, O. ; 
d. Nov. 20, 1898. His death came not unexpectedly, as for the 
last month of his time on earth it was known that he could not 
survive for any great length of time, and all were prepared for 
the inevitable. Until two or three minutes before the end Mr. 
IVIast was conscious and able to recognize the loved ones gathered 
at his bedside, and death came so quietly that he seemed only 
to have fallen asleep. The immediate causes of death were 
cancerous growths of the stomach and kidneys, Mr. Mast having 
been afflicted with stomach trouble while still a young man at- 
tending college. Later in life the growths became very serious 
and when he returned from French Lick Springs, Ind., five weeks 
prior to his death he was continually confined to his residence. 

Probably no man had ever been more intimately connected 
with the growth of Springfield from a comparatively small village 
to its present size than ^Ir. ]\Iast, whose enterprise in the line of 
manufacture of agricultural impliments in which he engaged soon 
after moving to Springfield had done much to develop that city. 




p. p. Mast — See Fam. No. loii. 



lAIAST FAMILY HISTORY 341 

In municipal affairs he was always prominent, although in an 
unassuming way, having given faithful service as a member of 
the cit\- council for twenty-two years, this service with the ex- 
ception of one term having been continuous. He was for many 
years ])resident of council, and was mayor of Springfield from 
1895 to 1897. Mr. Mast at the age of five years came with his 
father from Lancaster Co., Pa., and settled on a farm near 
L'rbana. O.. where he spent the early years of his life until he 
attained Iiis majority on the farm, with the exception of the time 
when he was attending college. He was a student of Ohio 
Weslvan University from where he graduated in 1849, havmg 
taken while there special interest in the scientific and Ihblical 
courses. 

After leaving college he spent part of his time with his 
parents, teaching school one year and devoting his attentions a 
part of the time to trading in grain and produce. Coming to 
Springfield in 1856, he engaged in partnership in the winter of 
1856 and 1857 with Hon. John H. Thomas in tlie manufacture 
of agricultural implements. His partnership continued until 1871 
when i\Ir. Mast bought Mr. Thomas' interest in the concern and 
organized the firm of P. P. iMast & Co., which is still enjoying a 
very prosperous existence, Mr. iVIast having remained the 
president of the company until his death. He was also the 
president of the Springfield National Bank, which was opened in 
Springfield, i\Iar. 31, 1882. iMr. i\Iast was also one third owner of 
the Farm and Fireside and the Woman's Home Companion 
published by the firm of i\Iast. Crowell & Kirkpatrick which was 
organized by Mr. i\Iast. June 1. 1879. 

Aside from his immense business interests, i\lr. iMast's liold- 
ings in real estate were considerable. Many years ago he 
purchased the Bandarita Ranch in Mariposa County, California, 
on which are located several gold mines: among them being the 
"Bandaritha," "Martin and Wallings" and the "P.ower Cave." 
At present none of these are being actively worked, although 
several of them proved at times very profitable. i\lr. i\last owned 
also about 3,000 acres of land in the peach belt of Georgia and 



342 IMAST FAMILY HISTORY 

3,600 acres of land in Trego County, Kansas, together with much 
vakiable real estate in Springfield. 

During his entire life Mr. Mast proved himself a very public 
spirited citizen, and made many donations to public and charitable 
objects; among which was a gift of $10,000.00 toward the erec- 
tion of St. Pauls' Alethodist Episcopal Church, of which he was 
a member from the beginning of its organization. 

He was greatly interested also in Ohio Weslyan University, 
of which for many years he was a trustee, and to which he had 
several times made monetary donations. He was a regular 
attendant at the commencement exercises of that college. Besides 
this he was always very generous to charitable works. He was 
continuously a Sunday school superintendent for forty years, 
having started as superintendent of the Central Methodist Epis- 
copal Sunday school and continuing in the same position when 
St. Paul's Church was organized. 

On the annversary of his birth Jan. 4, 1850 he was married 
to Miss Anna M. Kirkpatrick, a most esteemable woman, died 
Apr. 21, 1895 with dropsy, both buried at Springfield, O. She was 
a daughter of Samuel Kirkpatrick and Blanch Derror of Gales- 
burg, 111. 

They never had any issue, but three adopted daughters who 
were born to Mr. Mast's deceased brother, Isaac Wesley INIast. 

Mr. Mast also graduated in the year 1849 from Delaware 
College, and at that time decided to enter secular business, he 
sold his farm in Champaign Co. in 1856 and came to Springfield, 
O., where he formed a partnership with Hon. John H. Thomas, 
then county recorder. In 1850 he married, as previously stated, 
and with this marriage he obtained some money. With the two 
small capitals united and the addition of a third partner, Philip 
Kershner, they bought out Doctor Kindleberger and his patent 
and commenced its manufacture, together with a Buckeye Grain 
Drill and a Riding Corn Plow. Their means must have been 
limited, as Mr. Mast had once made the remark to some one that 
in those early days he built a drill and took it out in his wagon to 
sell or barter in order to get the means to build another. They 
also took building contracts. Later ^Ir. ]\Iast purchased the 



MAST FAMILY HISTORY 443 

Driscal Carriage Co. and bought Mr. Thomas' interest, Ijecame 
sole proprietor and proceeded to organize the P. P. Mast 
Company, taking into the corporation several of the employees 
of the concern. Great success followed, and building after build- 
ing on both sides of Warder Street arose and new buildings were 
necessitated for the business of the company. 

Mr. Mast also organized the firm of Mast, Foos & Com[ any 
in the West end making successful experiments with various 
articles of manufactvu-e, finally settling down mainly to tlie con- 
struction of the Turbine Windmill, Buckeye Lawn Mowers and 
pumps. Then both concerns entered upon a great degree of 
prosperity. — Obituary.

Ephraim Mast, one of the best known residents of this city, 
passed away at the home of his son John C. ^last on South Main 
Street, Thursday morning at 4 :45 after a lingering illness extend- 
ing over nineteen weeks. The cause of his death was a com- 
plication of diseases. The deceased was born near the village of 
Kings Creek, on the twenty-ninth day of June 1841, and was 
sixty-eight years old when death came to relieve his sufferings. 

Mr. Mast was taken seriously ill nineteen weeks ago and has 
been confined to his bed ever since. He was taken to the home 
of his son, Charles, in Boynton, Florida, where he spent several 
months in a vain efifort to get back his health. After he had been 
there for some time his condition began to grow worse and he 
expressed a desire to come back to his home to pass his remaining 
days. During the long years in which he was a resident of this 
county, Mr. Mast made himself beloved by his kindly manner. He 
was as wed known as any man in the county and counted his 
friends by the hundreds. 

When quite young he united with the Methodist church and 
"iias always been a faithful member. He was a member of the 
FiTSt M. E. Church of this city and his death will cause general 
sorrow among its members as he was generally loved. 

Funeral services over the remains will be held Saturday 
afternoon at two o'clock, from the residence of his son, John 
C, Mast on South Main street.

1083 THIRD GENERATION 1009 

5. Jacob Kenege Mast, b. Oct. 12, 1803, in Caernarvon 
Twp., llerks Co., Pa. He was a highly respected and life long 
citizen of his native locality, having resided orr the farm now 
owned by Mast Stoltzfus located one half mile south of IMorgan- 
town. 

He is supposed to have served as the first Sunday school 
superintendent in the Methodist church at Morgantown. 



^lAST FAMILY HISTORY 371 

His death was probably due to paralysis, as his body was 
found between 9 and 10 P. AI. on Apr. 2, 1858, on the public 
highway, by a neighbor named Samuel Troop, who was on his 
return from market. Mr. Mast had just transacted some busi- 
ness and was riding on horseback. He was united in marriage to 
Fanny (iehman,* on May 4, 1830, an esteemable lady formerly 
residing in the vicinity of Hinkletown, Lancaster Co., Pa., born 
May 22. 1810, and died Jan. 23, 1890, both are interred in Pine 
Grove Cemetery. They reared a family of four sons and four 
daughters. 

(1) Benjamin Mast, m. to Parmelia Parton. 



*The Gehman faniil}-, one of the earliest in southeastern Pennsylvania, 
is well represented by the present generation, who are chiefly 
engaged in agriculture and are highly esteemed as honorable 
business men and useful citizens. 

The early home of the Gehman family was in the Palatinate 
on the Rhine. The early members of the family to come to 
America were Christrarr Benedict, (or Bentz) and Hans. The 
Pennsylvania archives record the names of but two: "Christian, 
aged twenty-four years; and Benedict (Bentz), aged twenty 
years." Mention is also made of "Anna Geeman, aged twenty- 
three years." They landed at Philadelphia Aug. ii, 1732, like 
many others seeking the land of civil and religious liberty. They 
were Mennonites in religious faith. 

It is further stated that Christopher Geeman (also spelled 
Gehman) settled in Hereford township, Berks county, prior to 
'^'/Zli and became the owner of 300 acres of land. This tract has 
since been divided into three farms, all owned by his descendants. 
In 1759 Christopher Gehman paid a federal tax of ten pounds in 
Hereford township. 

The Gehman who located in Brecknock township, in a part 
now belonging to Berks county, was, without doubt Christian 
Gehman, as his name appears in the tax list of 1759. It seems 
that the one who located in Hereford was Christopher, not Chris- 
tian- The names are very near alike, and the same abbreviation 
is often used for both. The name Gehman is spelled on the records 
Geman. Geeman, Geyman, and in Bucks county it appears Gay- 
man. The pioneer who located in Hereford township had three 
sons and several daughters. His eldest son, Abraham, bought a 
farm ne,ar Telford, Bucks county, occupied by the late Rev. Abel 
Horning Bentz or Benedict Gehman (born in 1711-12) is supposed 
to be the progenitor of Fanny (Gehman) Mast. He also settled 
in Brecknock township, in the vicinity of the present location of 
Gehman's Meeting House, and there took up land and there to 
this day are found many of his descendants. The ]\Iennonite 
Meeting House near Adamstown was named in honor of Daniel 
Gehman, a son of the emigrant Benedict. The oldest members 
now living recall hearing their parents and grandparents talk of 
the relationship through the original emigrants.

converted at the age of twelve, and educated at the Ohio 
Wesleyan University and Fort Edward Institute, and after 
graduating at the latter institution became its preceptress. It 
was here that she met Prof. Robert H. Skinner, to whom she was 
married in 1864. Shortly after their marriage they moved to a 
farm in [Maryland, and later to Dover, as Professor Skinner had 
been elected principal of Wilmington Conference Academy. Here 
they remained till 1884, when they left the academy and moved to 
their farm near Dover, on account of Prof. Skinner's physical 
disability as in the latter part of his life he suffered with extreme 
pain, having received a wound on the hip while a lieutenant in the 
army, died in Oct. 1893. 

Mrs. Anna (Mast) Skinner's hfe was of rare beauty. She 
was refined, cultured, and pious, and in the work of her husband 
as principal of the Academy she was in every way qualified to be 
to him a helpmeet. Her death was peaceful and triumphant. She 
was ready for the summons, and said that she desired to go. 
The funeral services were conducted at the home by the pastor 
of Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church, Dover, Del., assisted by 
the Revs. W. F. Tolbot and V. S. Collins. Interment was made 
at Lakeside Cemetery.

childhood days were spent in the city until about twelve years of 
age, when he moved with his parents to the country. They spared 
no pains in giving him a good moral and mental training. 

At the age of sixteen he was left in charge of the duties ort 
the farm on account of his father's death, which he has been 
performing to the present time. His constant, devoted care of 
his mother who was an invalid has proved him to bear an honest 
and upright reputation with an unfaltering courage. While de- 
veloping into manhood his life appeared to unfold itself as that 
of a mechanical genius. He then aspired to different pursuits, 
yet he went about his work on the farm. He was one of the 
founders wdio built and organized the first telephone company 
in Conestoga Valley, established in 1902. 

Mr. Best was appointed as its first superintendent known as 
the Conestoga Telephone and Telegraph Co. His services in the 
company has given an enterprise which is gradually assuming 
larger proportions, and the company is today enjoying a prosper- 
ous condition. ]ylr. Best is also engaged in the mercantile busi-

His earlv life was spent in farming, from the active pursuit 
of which he retired in 1856, and since then, surrounded by that

Florence, Kan., Dec- ii, 1908. 
Esteemed friend: 

In regard to my husband's ancestors, as far as I have ascer- 
.tained, John Emerson, married to Susan Mast is my brother-in- 
law a direct descendant of Ralph Waldo Emerson, the eminent 
writer of the "Essays" and other articles, they are from the old 
stock of Joseph Emerson, who came to America from England 
about the year 1630 and settled at Mendon, Mass., which is found 
in the "Emerson -history," published by the New England His- 
torical Society. My husband was the youngest son of Brown 
Emerson, his mother was Lucinda Spellman, his grandfather's 
name was Jacob Emerson, they came from Mass., to O., in an 
early day and now rest from their labors in the Presbyterian 
cemetery at Reene, O. My husband's name was Albert Brown 
Emerson, was a life elder in the Presbyterian church, died in Mar. 
1904, aged 64 years, was Sunday school superintendent 14 years, 
active in all business affairs of church or state, was the father of 
■.eight children, who called him blessed, as he spared no pains to 
educate tJiem. All are holding good positions. 
Very truly, 

Mrs. B. L- Emerson, aged 68 years.

grandmother, ^Tary (Mast) Coffman and a few of the early 
members of the Mast family. 

^It. \\M-non. O.. Apr. 15, 1909. 

Mr. C. Z. Mast. 

Elverson, Pa. 

My Dear Cousin, 

I received your letter of recent date and in reply will state 
that it had been a great pleasure to me to hear from you. Learning 
that you are living in Conestoga Valley, it caused me to read 
your letter and the circular enclosed with great interest. 

Which I had never rejoiced more in my life as to receive 
some knowledge about my dear friends and relatives in Conestoga 
Valley whom I had never forgotten their names nor their charac- 
teristics and manner of living. 

I usually ma;'e many visits in Conestoga Valley during the 
early period of my life having had a special desire to become 
acquainted with the early members of the Mast family. 

^ly first visit to vour community was in president Harrison's 
campaign year of 184(>. I was just old enough to have certain in- 
cidents impressed upon my mind, which they still enable me to re- 
call them easily to memory. 

My parents then lived in Chester A'alley near the present 
site of Aldham Station. 

My cousin John Coffman, who was uncle John's son brought 
mother, brother John and T up to Conestoga \'alley in grand- 
mother (Mast) Coffman's dearborn. 

Our first visit was at uncle David ^Mast's. I remember of 
their son Christian and the coon on the wagon with a tiny chain 
on its neck and bells on the horses that had been hitched in the 
lead. 

In 1854 my parents moved from Chester Valley to Knox 
Co., O. But 1 remained for a number of years in Philadelphia, 
having owned a dressmaking establishment there. I occasionally 
made costly suits for ^Irs. Gen. ( irant and also for many wives of 
the government officials at Washington, D. C. 



401 .MAST I-A.MHA' HISTORY 



• 



1 )uring' certain periods when work was not so strenuous I 
made trips to Conestoga A^alley, visited the following places: 
Stephen Mast's, Jacob K. Mast's, Daniel Mast's, Levi Mast's, 
Isaac Mast's, Joseph Schertz's, John Stoltzfus's, Catharine Reeser 
and yciur grandfather, John M. Mast, and doubtless called at 
evcr\- Mast home located between Elverson and Churchtown. 

I su])p(isc the majority of my former friends and relatives 
lia\r iK-arl)- all passed away. 

In regard to }-our incjuiries concerning my grandmother, 
Mary ( Mast ) Coffman. ] may state that she was highly respected 
and remained a member of the Amish IMennonite church, until 
death. She was skilled in needlework as in making home-made 
linen and worked in silk goods of all colors. I have in my posses- 
sion pin cushions, and a pair of silk shoes that she had made and 
\arious other articles. 

When my parents lived in Knox Co., O., they made frequent 
visits to m\- mother's cousin, Grace Mast, which was a days drive 
and they also kept up an acquaintance with the ^Mast's in the vicin- 
ity of Millersburg, Holmes Co., O. 

Shortly after my marriage I moved with my husband to 
Cheyenne, Wyoming, where he had a large cattle ranch. In the 
meanwhile I had the privilege of going to Salt Lake City, Utah, 
having s])ent nearly two weeks in that city, I went to see 
the Mormon Bishop Hunter, who was in his ninety-second year. 
I told him that I was John CoiTman's grand-daughter, and that 
his Ijrother Rev. George Hunter, a Methodist minister was 
married to my mother's first cousin, Leah Mast. 

1 le entertained me in a very cordial manner for he was so 
glad to learn al)oui his former friends in Chester Valley and 
throughout the county of Chester, Pa., where he had migrated 
from with the Mormons when they left Chester Co., taking with 
him my uncle David CoiTman's widow and daughter, Laura, who 
was only seven years old. My uncle, Daniel, Samuel and John 
CofTman. tried to j^ersuade her to remain, but her mother would 
not ])ermit her to do so. I immediately inquired to the ^Mormon 
r.isho]) about my aunt. He replied that she was not living, but 
that 1 should see her daughter Laura tomorrow. Finallv he had 



MAST FAMILY HISTORY 403 

Laura to call and see me. She appeared much surprised as she 
had not heard from her relatives for nearly forty years. I soon 
learned that she was the seventh wife of the Mormon Bishop 
Hunter. Later he married his eighth wife and then Laura left 
him with five of her children. He gave her a farm where she 
spent the remaining days of her life. She also left the Mormon 
faith and none of her children ever followed it. 

I send my love to all and permit me to congratulate you in 
your formidable task ; wishing you success. 

From your sincere cousin, 

Mrs. Mary E. Gordin Swan.

and came to America in the ship Anderson, landing at Philadel- 
phia, Sept.^ 27, 1752 heing a resident of the Xorthkill in 1757. His 
great-gran'dson, James, who lives on the old homestead has a 
large book printed at Ephrata, Pa., in which is printed in good 
German the name of the ancestor and the date, 1757. He owned 
one farm of 206 acres which he acquired in 1764, having purchased 
it from Adam Losh (Lesh), whose father, Johan Losh erected a 
house on the old homestead in 1753. This house which is of stone 
is in good condition today and the wall will be good for another 
century. This land Johannes Kurtz in about 1780 divided into 
two tracts: the deeds therefor calling for loi and 120 acres 
respectively; the difference being due to the provincial authorities 
allowing six per cent for roads and other improvements. The 
inscription on his tomb-stone in the private burial ground on the 
homestead reads: "Denkmal von Johannes Kurtz, Er war ge- 
boren in Europe in der S'chweitz und storb im April 1796 alt 74 
yahre." His wife Betty Richenback died in February, 1796, aged 
seventy-three years, and was the mother of these children: Jacob, 
who settled in the vicinity of Ephrata, Lancaster county, had 
three children — John, Jacob and Nancy, m. to John Kurtz, of 
another branch of the family in Cumru township, who founded 
Kurtz House' John also settled in Lancaster county. Stephen

*IMichael Kintzer, fourth son of Adam Kintzer, was a life long farmer 
living in Lower Heidelberg township where he owned the old 
Kintzer homestead two miles north of Womelsdorf. Here he 
made his home for many years and here he died, Mar. 9, 1883 at 
the age of seventy-three. He and his family were members of 
St. Daniel's Corner Church at the time of his death, but he is 
buried at the Hain's Church in the new cemetery where the 
Kintzers have a fine lot. 

Michael Kintzer was married three times: First, to Cathar- 
ine Stupp by whom he had four children; Frank, Israel, Adam 
and George- By his second marriage to Maricha Jones he had 
one son, Aaron, who died unmarried. By his third union with 
Matilda Kurtz who survives him he had four children as previous- 
ly named. 

Nicholas Kintzer, the progenitor of a family numerous in 
western Berks county, was born in Germany Xov. 15, 1715- 
When less than fifteen years old he crossed the ocean on the 
ship "Thistle" which arrived at Philadelphia, Aug. 20, 1730, and 
he came to live in Tulpehocken township, Berks Co., Pa., where 
he became a substantial citizen. In 1759 he was assessed £16 
which, reckoning $2.66 to the Pennsylvania pound, amounted to 
$42.56 of current coin- This pioneer settler died Jan. 20, 1794 
in the seventy-ninth year of his age. He is buried at the Host 
Church, of which he was a member. His grave is marked by a 
brown sandstone the inscription on which is still legible. His 
will which was made Dec. 15, 1791, and probated Mar. 5, 1794 is 
recorded in Will Book B. page 355. The executors were his son 
Jacob and Thomas Kurr and the following children are mentioned 
in the document: Jacob; Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Kurr; 
Margaret, wife of Godfrey Real; Catharine who died before her 
father, her children receiving her share; and Julia, dec'd.

1306 SECOND GENERATION 

1. John Hoelley, son of Andreas, was born in 1739. He was 
ordained an Amish Mennonite minister in which capacity he 
labored until he was called to his eternal reward. During the 
early period of his life he was forced to leave Bern Twp., Berks 
Co., Pa., on account of Indian depredations. He settled in 
Pequea Valley, Lancaster Co., Pa., at which place he united in 
Miarriage with Catherine Blank whose parents were also natives 
of Switzerland.- — See Fam. 192. 

In Apr. 1791, he moved with his family from Salisbury 
Twp,, Lancaster Co., Pa., to Brown Twp., Mifflin Co., Pa., where 
he d. Oct. 4, 1805. 

He was rendered insolvent from his financial means at the 
former place by the depression which came from Continental 



third generation of a very prolific and important family in Amer- 
ica, whose emigrant ancestor, Andreas Hoelley,* a native of Swit- 
zerland crossed the ocean in company with his brother Michael 
Hoelley in the same vessel which had imported Jacob r\Iast, 
progenitor. 

The name Hoelley has been spelled in four different ways 
by the members of the same family. Holly, Holley, Hoelley and 
Hooley. When Andreas and Michael arrived in Philadelphia, on 
Xov. 3, 1750, they registered their names "Hoelley." Andreas 
Hoelley settled in Lancaster Co-, now Lebanon Co., Pa., \vhich 
bordered the Northkill settlement of the first Amish Mennonite 
pioneer settlers of America. His son John Hoelley who was 
also a native of Switzerland, lived in Bern Twp., Berks Co., Pa. 
(the same vicinity of his father), and is listed among the first 
taxables in 1754, of Bern Twp. 

"Andreas Hoellty was a mem1;cr of the Amish Mennonite Church. He died in the 
locality where he first settled and is supposed to have been buried near Ham- 
burg, Berks Co., Pa. Tradition says that the early members of this family 
were low in stature, well proportioned, having a muscular frame capable of 
enduring great hardships.

MAST FA^IILY HISTORY 509 

in ]\Iifflin Co., Pa., in which he bears a name so intimately con- 
nected with the agriculturists of Kishacoquillas \"alley and of 
I>elleville, that a history of the recent generations of the Zook 
family of ]\Iifflin Co., Pa., would be a nearly complete history of 
the beautiful town of Belleville in the last century and more 
years, and could not be written without frequent reference to the 
achievements and efforts of the Zooks in every phase of its ev- 
olution from a settlement of a small country village to one of the 
finest towns in the county. 

The Zool's have ever been noted for intelligence and general 
excellence of character, which has proved to the literary achieve- 
ments of the memorable Shem Zook, who was a noted writer 
and church historian, and also in the wise administration of large 
interests in the Iron and Brass Foundry of Belleville. Under the 
firm name of Hertzler & Zook the two men have developed the 
property during the last years, the capacity of the plant being in- 
creased steadily until the annual product now amounts to hundreds 
of tons in the manufacture of stoves, farming implements, re- 
pairing, etc. Thomas E. Zook was reared on a farm near Belle- 
vdlle. Pa., where he .'ipent the early years of his life until he at- 
tained his majority on the farm. He then became an employee 
on the Kishacoquillas X'alley R. R. as fireman for several vears, 
and later embarked in the iron, industry. He was married ]vlar. 
28, 1907, at Belleville, Pa., to Sallie M. Yoder, b. Feb. 16, 1874, 



least one place, Greenawald Station, perpetuates the name. It 
is variously spelled Greenawalt and Greenawald. 

Jacob Greenawalt, born in Switzerland, came to America in 
1738, and upon his arrival at Philadelphia was sold as a re- 
demptioner to a man named Schuler. In 1741 he married Eliza- 
beth Filhower, a native of Germany, then of ]\Iontgomer}^ Co., 
Pa. In 1742 he and his wife located in Weisenburg township, 
Northampton (now Lehigh) county. Pa-, where he claimed several 
hundred acres of land, upon which he erected a gristmill, oil mill 
and tan yard. He prospered at this place, where were born his 
six children, four sons and two daughters, namely, Jacob, 
Johannes. Abraham, George, Mrs. Grim and Mrs. Barbara Weise. 
All of these reared families of their own. The pioneer and his 
wife are buried at Ziegel's church, while others of the family are 
interred at Seiberlingville, and some at Jacob's Church, Jackson- 
ville, Lehigh county. The Greenawalts are a strong, roI)ust and 
healthy race and many have attained ripe old age.

*Jacob Wanner's father was born in Chester Valley, Chester Co., Pa. 
The first American representative of the Wanner family in 
America was Martin Wanner, lived in the Palatinate, Germany, 
and came to America in August, 1732 landing in Philadelphia and 
after remaining at Germantown for several years, removed to 
Colebrookdalc Twp., in Berks County. 

In the Old World, however, the line is carried back for 
centuries. From an old manuscript it is learned that the name, 
Wanner, is recorded in the genealogical table book of the German 
noblemen at Vienna, Austria, among the nobles that resided in 
Wangen, Upper Swabia. The ancestral line is traced back to the 
year, A. D. 790. At this period Charles the Great, King of 
France, enlarged the city and surrounded it l:)y high walls; this 
l:)eing completed he appointed Bertrande de Vanneres, a dis- 
tinguished and experienced warrior as chief counsellor of the city. 
Bertrande de Vanneres was born in France and afterwards went 
to Germany. When he became a resident of the town Wangen 
he changed his name into Bertrand Wanner. His wife was Julia 
Kurtz from Ricordia. 

The Escutcheon — two lilies were engraved upon his shield, 
and one on the helmet ; these composed the escutcheon of his 
family in France. Besides two lilies he had engraved on each 
side of the one, a horn, as a sign that he was empowered to 
counsel and to protect the City. He died A. D. 832, and left two

sens, named Winfred and Herbert, who bore the same escutcheon. 

The family soon became very large, and a number still re- 
main residents of Wangen where they are held in high estimation 
among the nobility. In the reign of King Ludwig their nobility 
was re-established and ratified, by order of the king. The escut- 
cheon was improved and distributed among those that resided in 
L'pper Swabia. By order of Charles V. of Germany the biogra- 
phies of those most distinguished were written and placed in the 
archives at Vienna where they can be seen at the present day. 

The two above mentioned were officers under the King, the 
one statoned at Augsburg and the other at Constance. On ac- 
count of the unremitting war which raged at that time throughout 
nearly all Germany, onl}' two of the Wanner family remained in 
Germany in the year 1539. Those were named Godfried and 
Henry Wanrier. They were both Counsellors at Wangen. and 
, from thence the Wanner lineage became divided into families. 

(i) Godfred became the father of those that remained in the 
Swal)ia line, but soon some settled in Baiern and Switzerland. 
Godfried became chief burgess of Wangen. The name of his wife 
was Lucia Dollinger. He died A. D. 1592 and left three sons; 
named William, Anthony and Friederich. Of these William re- 
mained in Wangen, Anthonj' resided in Augsburg, and Friedrich 
went to Switzerland. 

(2) Henry went to Frankfort-on-the-Main and became a 
trader in gold and silver. The name of his wife was Bertha 
Jannetka. He died in 1580, and left a son named Rudolf Wanner 
who died in 1580 and left a son who became a goldsmith in Frank- 
fort and obtained great wealth: but during the Thirty Years' War 
he was plundered by the Spaniards and left but a small patrimony 
to his sons at his death. The foregoing is taken from the Europe 
Escutcheon Book and the family record in the library at Vienna.

Isaac H. Mast had labored several years in the compilation of 
this history for the interest of the writer and had frequently 
expressed the desire of seeing it completed. His loss was deeply 
felt everywhere. For a number of years he suffered from the 
results of a "slow heart." For months at a time it did not 
average more than forty beats per minute at times getting as low 
as 25. On Apr. 13, 1910 he ate dinner as usual then walked to 
the barn and returned in the course of an hour. He sat down in 
the rocker to rest and his life soon expired. Funeral services were 
held at the Maple Grove Church near Topeka, Ind., by A. J. 
Yontz and J. S. Hartzler. Text, II Cor. 5:1.
