PREFACE. 



A number of the Wismer connection in Bucks 
Co., Pa., Canada, and elsewhere, desiring a histoiy 
of the Wismer family compiled for publication in 
book form, requested us to undertake the work, and 
as a mark of favor and kindness towards those 
friends, we kindly consented. 

As is usually the case, in the compiling of family 
genealogies, the work is not as complete as it should 
be, owing to the failure of some of the connections to 
respond to our communications to furnish us with 
their family records, and other information they pos- 
sessed. 

We feel indebted to many of the friends for their 
kindness in furnishing information for this genealogy. 
Prominent among those who have interested them- 
selves in the work, and given us valuable aid, by fur- 
nishing us much information are: Eli Wismer, Plum- 
stead, Pa.; Aaron Wismer, Jordan Sta., Ont. ; Reu- 
ben W. Kratz, Pomona, Kans; H. W. Gross, Doyles- 
town, Pa.; Samuel Nash, Doylestown, Pa.; Till- 
man W. Moyer, Campden, Ont., and others.

INTRODUCTION. 



Deeds of great men live long after them. Monu- 
ments rear their lofty heads to perpetuate their mem- 
ory or commemorate some remarkable events in 
which they moved as leading factors. Historical vol- 
umes hand down to future generations the details of 
their achievements as monarchs before whom nations 
trembled and vanished; as warriors whose word of 
command spread death and desolation through the 
world; as statesmen whose political abilities pro- 
claimed liberty to millions of the human race, and as 
religious reformers who suffered persecution and 
martyrdom that the light of Gospel doctrine might 
shine over the whole earth and dispel the darkness of 
superstition, — the idle fancies, rigor or excessive ex- 
actness in religious opinions and practices. 

In introducing this volume to the descendants of 
our pioneer American ancestor, we do not claim for 
him any famous deeds as a man of renown, but a no- 
ble courage and a virtuous and exemplary character, 
embodied in a person, who never rose above a hum- 
ble position in life, which, if strongly formed in the 
people of a nation, does more towards promoting its 
prosperity and welfare than the courage and charac- 
ter of many men of fame. 



— VIII — 

Any one somewhat acquainted with the early 
history of our country well knows, that the principal 
motive that led many people from different parts of 
Europe to come to America, was to escape from the 
various religious persecutions which they had to en- 
dure in their native countries. That our ancestor, 
Jacob Wismer, who settled in Bucks Co., Pa., about 
one hundred and seventy years ago, was one of those 
who abandoned the land of their births, and faced the 
dangers and hardships which confronted the early 
settlers in the New World, we have reason to believe; 
not from a positive knowledge of facts prior to his 
arrival in America, but from subsequent events in 
connection with the organization of the Mennonite 
Congregation at Deep Run, of which he was one of 
the leading originators. 

It is not only a pious but an instructive task, to 
collect and preserve the memorial of our ancestor 
who, in making himself a home in the wilderness, 
also complied with the Divine command to the ances- 
tor of the human family, and laid the foundation of a 
family, in number, of thousands, whose members are 
now spread far and wide over the United States and 
Canada. People who fail to appreciate and cherish 
the virtues and exemplary deeds of their ancestors, 
however humble their position or insignificant their 
acts, are not likely to transmit anything worthy of 
remembrance or imitation to their descendants. 

Let us pause and reflect. Let us draw a compar- 
ison of the period of our ancestor in the "father- 
land," and the land of his adoption. Persecutions 
ami intolerance in the Old World. Savages and for- 
ests in i he New. 



— IX — 

How the hearts of our fathers must have beat 
with mingled joy and sadness when they bade adieu 
to their native land and set sail for the New World. 
Behind them the homes of their births and rulers in- 
tolerant and oppressive. Before them the vast ocean 
and a land of liberty of conscience. What a contrast 
they must have felt after having been established in 
their new homes on American soil; no more bound 
down by the whims and caprices of tyrannical kings 
and rulers. These were the preliminaries that our 
family encountered. Few of us have tasted hardships 
like unto his. All of us may enjoy the gifts, the ben- 
efits and the advantages which promote our temporal 
prosperity and welfare, or secure our immortal felic- 
ity. Surely such blessings should awaken the grati- 
tude of all who partake thereof. 

Representatives of the family fill many impor- 
tant and prominent positions in the walk of life. 
They may be found, not only among the tillers of the 
soil and mechanics, but also among teachers of our 
public schools, and ministers of the Gospel; among 
the medical and legal professions, among editors and 
publishers of religious and secular papers, and among 
professors of advanced institutions of learning. 

Turning over the leaves of this volume may be a 
melancholy task to some of us. There are names in 
it that revive no remembrance of those that bore 
them; and there are others which bring before us 
very distinctly the forms and faces with which we 
were once familiar. Many of the names have long 
ago been chiseled on the grave-stones of their own- 
ers, to remind us of friends whose book of life was 
closed long ago. There are also names that belong to 
those who are still living and some of whom are very 



— X — 

dear to us. It is rather a humiliating reflection that 
this thing of rags and sheepskin will outlast many 
generations of us. In the course of time its leaves 
will become discolored with age, and all will decay. 
But of the human volume it is only the binding that 
decays. The contents are immortal, and if found 
worthy will re-appear with rare embellishments 
where the mildew of time can never mar them.

LIST OF EXPLANATIONS AND ABBREVIATIONS. 



In the preparation of this work it will be observed 
that all descendants are recorded in the regular order of 
birth, from the oldest to the youngest, each generation being 
marked consecutively from first to last. The Roman numer- 
als placed before each name indicates the generation to which 
they belong, as: — 

I. Jacob Wismer (First generation). 
II. Jacob Wismer (Second generation). 

III. Rev. Abraham Wismer (Third generation). 
IV. Barbara Wismer (Fourth generation). 

Beginning with the first (I) ancestor, Jacob Wismer, 
all his children are named in the order of birth as near as 
possible. Then follows his oldest son, Jacob Wismer (II. 
Generation), and his children (III. Generation) next. Rev. 
Abraham, being the oldest, is followed down to the last of 
his descendants; then the second in order of birth of the III. 
Generation, and so on until the end of the entire branch of 
Jacob Wismer of the II. Generation is reached. Then the 
second child of Jacob Wismer of the I. Generation, viz.: 
Elizabeth (Wismer) Angeny (II. Generation), is carried 
down in like manner to the last of her descendants, and so 
on throughout the entire connection. 

Where marriages occur between members of the con- 
nection, the husband carries the record. In all such cases 
a numbered reference is placed after name and marriage of 
the wife, as, for example: (See Index of References No. 1).

THE WISMER FAMILY HISTORY. 



I. Jacob Wismer, ancestor of the numerous fam- 
ily of that name in Bucks and Montgomery Counties 
Pa., and other portions of the United States and Can- 
ada, was born in Germany about 1684, and died in 
Bedminster Township, Bucks Co., Pa., Feb. 1, 1787 
in his one hundred and third year. 

The precise time when he emigrated to America 
is not known, but may have been as early, or before 
1710. 

The place of landing is also an unsettled fact. It 
is admitted by most of his descendants that he landed 
on one of the Carolina States. 

By some it is thought that the site of Charles- 
ton in South Carolina had been the place of landing, 
and that he had taken up laud in that section. Others 
state that he landed in North Carolina* which is 
thought to be the most probable, and he may have 
been one of the number of a hundred German families, 
who, driven from their homes on the Rhine by per- 
secution, and in 1709, settled along the Roanoke and 
head waters of the Neuse river, in N. C. At the out- 
break of the Indian war, led by the Tuscaroras, the 
savages, on the night of October 2, 1711, fell with 
such fury upon this German settlement that one hun- 



*W. W. H. Davis' History of Bucks Co., states that he 
emigrated to North Carolina, where he lived ten years, etc. 



dred and thirty of them perished. That he had been 
among the unfortunate emigrants in this German set- 
tlement is not in the least improbable, although there 
is no positive proof that such was the case. A tradi- 
tion of the family says, that a sister accompanied him 
to America, that after they settled, the Indians fell 
upon them and killed the former, the latter held out 
some tobacco before the savages, which caused their 
savage nature to yield to such an extent that he was 
enabled to make his escape. It is said that after he 
made his escape he walked and ran ninety miles in 
one day. He traveled north as far as Byberry in Phil- 
adelphia County, Pa. , from whence he later, moved 
to Bucks County. 

The motive that impelled the Wismer ancestor 
to these shores is not known, but undoubtedly was 
on account of religious persecution which raged in 
the father-land, and which was the chief cause of the 
emigration in those early days of so many of the pio- 
neer fathers to the New World where no cruel perse- 
cution was waged against the devout worshipers of 
God. Here was a refuge for the oppressed people of 
God, of other nations, and hither they came by the 
thousands where they might worship God under the 
bright sun of religious freedom, untrammeled and 
unoppressed. 

As to his nationality, it has been insisted upon by 
some that he was an Englishman, but of this there is 
no proof in fact. On the contrary, evidence point 
more directly and conclusively to German nation- 
ality. 

The fact of his having been a member of a dis- 
tinctively German church is strong evidence in favor 
of Germany having been the father-land.

The deed of William Allen to the denomination 
of Mennonites for fifty acres of land at Deep Run, 
was drawn in favor of six persons, who are named in 
the deed as being members of said denomination and 
who are supposed to have been the principal or lead- 
ing originators of the Deep Run congregation. Among 
the six was Jacob Wismer, who, we have every reason 
to believe was the ancestor, or Jacob the first, and 
which shows that he was a Mennonite, and worshiped 
with German people, and from which we infer that 
he himself was a German. 

Also the fact that there are now in the United 
States, Wismers who were born in Germany and 
Switzerland, and that there are to this day Wismers 
still residing in those countries is strong evidence 
against the Bucks County ancestors having been an 
Englishman. 

An aged lady still living in Bucks Co., a great- 
granddaughter of Mark Wismer, son of Jacob the 
first, relates that she heard the oldest of her ancestors 
say that Jacob Wismer came from Germany. 

She also says that among her great-grandfather 
Mark Wismer's books, was an old German Bible, 
strongly bound, with brass plates and clasps, that had 
belonged to Jacob Wismer, and contained a record of 
his family. 

After Mark's death the Bible came into the pos- 
session of an aunt to the lady referred to, and later 
was owned by herself, and was finally destroyed by 
fire during the burning of her house. 

Jacob W T ismer was the first white man to settle 
upon the tract he purchased in Bucks County. 

Tradition says that the party who brought him 
from Byberry unloaded family and effects under a big 



tree in the woods, and on leaving him gave the fol- 
lowing tart advice, "Now Wismer work or die." 

In what year he settled in Bucks County is not 
positively known, but is supposed to have been in 
1726, in which year the first sum of money was paid 
by the Leeches. According to the contract of Penn 
and Alcok, the rent on the tract did not become due 
until the tract had become occupied, hence there is 
evidence of considerable weight showing the time of 
settlement to have been as stated. 

The tract on which Jacob Wismer settled in 
Bucks County, previous to his purchasing it, was 
comprised of 375 acres, and which William Penn Pro- 
prietor and Governor of the Province of Pennsylvania, 
granted and conveyed by indenture on the 16th of 
July 1691, unto one Jeffrey Alcok of Ordslyford, 
County of Chester, Kingdom of England. 

Alcok was held by the same indenture under a 
yearly rent of one shilling for every one hundred acres, 
to become due and payable as soon as occupied. On 
the 6th of February 1723 Alcok granted and conveyed 
the same tract to Peter Dicks of Upper Providence 
Chester Co., Pa., under the same rent as Alcok. On 
May 22, 1725, Dicks granted and conveyed the same 
tract to John Leech of Philadelphia, and his brother 
Isaac Leech of Cheltenham Twp., Philadelphia Co. 
Up to this time the tract had been unoccupied and 
indefinitely located (in the Province of Pennsylvania 
towards the Susquehanna river). By order of Jacob 
Taylor surveyor general under date of January 28, 
1726, the aforesaid tract was located, surveyed and 
laid out unto Leech and brother by Thomas Watson, 
County surveyor on the 3d of February 1726, and for 
which they probably paid £60 lawful money of

America, and which was the first sum paid for the 
entire tract. 

On Apr. 29, 1727 John Leech granted and con- 
veyed his share of the tract unto his brother Isaac, who 
in his will, bearing date Oct. 14, 1711 authorized and 
empowered his wife Rebecca, and brother Thomas 
Leech to convey to Jacob Wismer, and other persons 
in the will named, the 375 acres. 

On May 17, 1719, Rebecca Leech and Thomas 
Leech gave title to Jacob Wismer of Bedminster 
Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania for 210 acres 
being the south western portion of the 375 acre tract, 
and for which he paid £100 lawful money. 

On the 12th of April 1773, Jacob Wismer sold the 
tract to his son Henry of Hilltown for i'500 which 
was to be paid in installments after his (Jacob's) death 
to his nine children. About the same time he made a 
will in which he stated the time when the share of 
each should become due after his death. The amount 
of £54 12 s. 6 pence was the sum that fell to each of 
the nine heirs; viz., Jacob, Mark, Abraham, Daniel, 
John, Christian, Mary, Elizabeth and Nanny. 

Henry the purchaser of the Homestead received 
no share of the £500. 

Jacob Wismer's son Henry, and son-in-law Henry 
Kephart, were appointed executors of his estate. 

The old Homestead is divided into six tracts and 
occupied as follows, — Abraham Wismer, a great 
great-grandson of Jacob Wismer, and great-grandson 
of Henry Wismer of the second generation, owns the 
old homestead with 72 acres; Samuel Wismer, brother 
to Abraham Wismer mentioned above, owns and re- 
sides upon a tract of 19^ acres on the S. W. and 6 or 
8 acres S. E. of the homestead belong to David K. 
Landis; William D. High, is the owner of 90 acres 



— 6 — 

on the N. E.; Jacob M. Rush, owns 5 acres which is 
surrounded on three sides by the High tract, and 
Jacob D. Swartz owns 11 acres S.W. of High's tract. 

Towards the close of his life his occupation was 
that of wheelwright, and which he may have car- 
ried on in connection with farming for many years. 

He is said to have had three wives, and was mar- 
ried to his third wife after coming north about 1720, 
and with whom he lived 67 years, she being 81 years 
old at the time of his death. Her Christian name was 
"Nanny," and she was the mother of all his children. 
Her maiden name is unknown, but it is known that 
the children and grandchildren received legacies from 
one Jacob Sowder, and it is presumed that she was 
the daughter of Jacob Sowder. 

*A pear tree raised from a seed which had been 
planted by Nanny is still standing on the homestead 
a living monument to the memory of the distinguished 
couple. Thirty five years ago it was the most mag- 
nificent tree known in that vicinity. In wonder and 
astonishment, it is said, many a mortal stood gazing 
at its stately form and admiring its magnitude, a 
strange contrast to its primitive state. Age and 
storms have overcome its strength, and greatly re- 
duced and diminished its former usefulness and noble 
appearance. 

It is not known that Jacob Wismer ever held any 
official position in the county or township, but he 
was a petitioner for the new Township of Bedminster, 
as tlic "Jacob Weismore," signed to the petition for 
the township in 1711 was no doubt meant for Jacob 
Wismer. 



*Extrac1 from sketch of Wismer family, by Eli Wismer, 
of Plumstead, Pa. 



At the time of his death he had one hundred and 
seventy children and grandchildren. 

Although living to the great age of 103 years, he 
retained his mind until within about two months, and 
could walk out and dress and undress himself within 
about two weeks of his death. 

The remains of himself and wife were no doubt 
laid to rest in the grave-yard of the Old Mennonite 
church at Deep Run, the scene of their zeal for God's 
cause, and where for many years they worshiped the 
God of their fathers, and left to their numerous pos- 
terity an und} T ing example, to "go and do likewise." 
And so shall they remain until that day when the 
great angel shall descend from heaven with a shout, 
and swear with a solemn oath, that "time was, time 
is and time shall be no more," when God shall again 
quicken the bones, and bid the sleepers come forth. 
Then may it be their great joy to see their numerous 
posterity safely sheltered in the fold of the great 
Shepherd, and together join in the triumphant, shout 
of the redeemed. 

The children of Jacob and Nanny Wismer, as 
near in the order of birth as could be placed were; — 
Jacob, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph. Henry, Mark, 
Daniel, John, Christian, Nanny, Abraham.

OF JACOB WISMER. 



II. Jacob Wismer,* bn. in Bucks Co., Pa., about 
1721. Mrd. Margaret — . The dates of death of him- 
self and wife are not known. He received his portion 
of his father's estate in 1783. Lived in Plumstead 
Twp. at what is known as the burnt mill, where he 
followed the occupation of miller. Children: Abra- 
ham, Isaac, Anna, Mary, Elizabeth, Jacob, Mary, 
Barbara, Hannah, Margaret. 

III. Rev. Abraham Wismer, bn. in Bucks Co., Aug. 
21, 1746. Mrd. — . He was familiarly known as 
Abraham Wismer, the "long-beard." It is related 
that as he and his nephew, Martin Overholt, were 
coming near where a number of people were gath- 
ered, some one among the crowd seeing his long 
snowy white beard, inquired, "What is that coming 
there?" and another replied, "Why, that is preacher 
Wismer; he has swallowed a white horse and that is 
its tail hanging out of his mouth." Martin Overholt, 
who heard the remark, became very angry, and was 
about taking off his coat to resent the insult when his 
grandfather laid his hand on his shoulder, holding 
him back, saying, "Du musst nicht fechten." Abra- 
ham Wismer was ordained to the ministry of the 
Mennonite church at Deep Run, where he served as 
one of the ministers. Children: Barbara, Margaret, 
Elizabeth. Hannah, Magdalena.

years of his life were spent on his father's farm in 
Canada. Hard work, limited school privileges, but

inations, and began teaching at the age of 20. For 
18 years he continued teaching with slight interrup- 
tion. His fields of labor having been in Canada, 
Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas. In 1859 -'60 a few 
terms in Clark Seminary, Aurora, 111., aided him in 
making a start in the classics. He prized his 
mother-tongue, and taught classes in German in the 
Public Schools of Independence, Mo., in 1868-'70 and 
in Wyandotte, Kan., from 1872 to 1875. In 1879 he 
engaged in editorial work on the Wyandotte Gazette,

tory thereto she attended a Grammar school, but on 
account of ill health she was compelled to discontinue 
her school attendance. 

When about 17 years of age she began teaching 
school, and continued, except when attending school, 
until within about three months of her death. When 
in her 18th year she was converted and soon after 
united with the Ev. Ass'n church, and though often 
in darkness, with conflicts, doubts, and fears, yet 
bright hope as often intervened to cheer and light her 
path until the end came, and the crown won. 

Among her writings were many pieces of her 
own composition, mostly of a religious character, 
that speak well of her poetical talents. We make 
room for one written for an intimate friend and 
schoolmate. 

[RESPONSE. 

You smooth the tangles from my hair 
With gentle touch and tend'rest care, 
And count the years ere you shall mark 
Bright silvery threads among the dark, — 
Smiling the while to hear me say, 
"You'll think of this again some day! 
"Some day!" 

I do not scorn the power of time, 
Nor count on years of fadeless prime; 
But no white gleams will ever shine 
Among these heavy locks of mine. 
Ah, laugh as gaily as you may, 
You'll think of this again some day, 
Some day ! 

Some day I shall not feel as now, 
Your soft hands move about my brow; 
1 shall not slight your light commands, 
And draw the long braids through my hands; 
I shall be silent and obey, — 
Aiul you— you will not laugh that day, 
That day! 



— 41 — 

I know how long your loving hands 
Will linger with these glossy bands, 
When you shall weave my latest crown 
Of these thick braidings long and brown; 
But you shall see no touch of gray 
Adown their shining lengths that day, 
That day! 

And while your tears are falling hot 
Upon the lips which answer not, 
You'll take from these one treasured tress, 
And leave the rest to silentness, 
Remembering that I used to say, 
" You'll think of this again some dca/, 
"Someday!"

V. Rebecca Nash, bn. Nov. 27, 1812; died Aug. 16,

In early life they were Mennonites, but during the 
great revival of God's work at the "Twenty" in Clin- 
ton Twp., Lincoln Co., Ont., in 1849-1851, they ex- 
perienced the grace of God in the renewal of their 
hearts, and subsequently united with the Evangelical 
Association church, of which they remained faithful 
and active members until death. Children: Samuel, 
Mary, Anna, Barbara, Eli, Elizabeth, David, Simeon. 

VI. Rev. Samuel N. Moyer, bn. Aug. 10, 1834. His 
early life was spent on the old homestead farm at the 
Twenty up to about the age of twenty years. During 
the winter months he attended the common school 
u in dem Schulhaus an der Krick." In Jan. 1854 he 
commenced teaching school, taught three months, 
and was paid $11.00 per month and board. The fol- 
lowing year he also taught three months, and then 
decided to make teaching his life work, and at once 
took a course in the Normal school, and followed the 
profession of teaching until 1868. In the 15th year of 
his age he was converted, and united with the Evan- 
gelical Association church. In 1857 he commenced to 
exercise his talents for the Lord in the Sabbath- 
school work, and weekly tract distribution in Port 
Elgin, where he was teaching. This he followed up 
for years both summer and winter. He was also ap- 
pointed Class-leader at the first organization of the 
Ev. Ass'n church at that place in 1859. During these 
years he was impressed, and knew that he should go 
forth as a herald of the cross of Christ, but his unfit- 
ness seemed so great that he dared not venture to let 
even his dearest friends know of his convictions. Fi- 
nally, through the searching inquiry of a father in Is- 
rael, he yielded his assent, and was given work as a 
local preacher in 1867. At the next Annual Confer- 
ence held in Blenheim Twp., under the Presidency of 
Bishop Joseph Long, he was licensed as probationer, 
and sent as Junior preacher to Upper Wolwich Cir- 
cuit to assist Rev. Theo. Hand. In 1869 he was sent 
to Blenheim Circuit alone; Hamburg Circuit, 1871- 
1872; Lincoln and Gainsboro Mission, 1873-1876, and 



— 13 — 

Campden Station one year; Hespeler Mission, 1877 — ; 
Credition Station, 1880—; Hespler Mission, 1883—. 
In 1881 he was elected Presiding Elder and sent to 
the Ottawa District, and also as pastor of the Golden 
Lake Mission. In 1887 he was stationed on the North 
District, and 1889 on the West District. He was or- 
dained Deacon in 1870 at Credition, and Elder in 
1872 at Lingelbach's church. Preaching Christ and 
pointing sinners to the Lamb of God, has been and 
still is the greatest joy of his life, and the Lord has 
richly crowned his feeble endeavors to glorify His 
name, and given him many seals to his ministry on 
every pastoral charge he has served. In Sept. 1858 
he was married to Martha Jane, daughter of Benja- 
min and Lavina Brown, of Gainsboro, Ont. She died 
without issue. May 21, 1871. For second wife he mrd.

VI. Daniel Albright, bn. Jan. 10, 1859. Mrd. Eliza- 
beth Krupp, of Lansdale, Pa., Oct, 11, 1883. His 
boyhood days were spent on his father's farm in Hill- 
town, Pa. When 16 years of age his father died. At 
that time having shown some proficiency in his stud- 
ies, his teacher Miss Emily Rowland, advised him to 
prepare for the profession of teaching. Having a great 
desire for knowledge, and receiving encouragement 
at home, he concluded on a course, and in the spring 
of 1875 entered the Millersville, Pa., State Normal 
School, where he remained a number of terms, after 
which he received license to teach, and taught the 
home school in his native township for six months. 
Feeling a lack of qualifications to teach properly, and 
detesting the yearly examinations for provisional cer- 
tificates, he concluded to overcome these obstacles, 
and returned to the Millersville Normal School and 
completed a Normal course, taking the degrees of 
Master of the Elements, and Elementary Didactics, 
completing the course in 1880. In the fall of 1880, 
he took charge of a school in Lancaster Co. and be- 
came principal of the Borough Schools of Sellersville, 
Bucks Co. in the fall of 1881, where he taught two 



— 59 — 

winters, and where he, during the summer of 1882, 
conducted a teacher's training class, enabling several 
pupils to pass satisfactorily the Superintendent's 
teacher's examinations. In the fall of 1882 he received 
the appointment of Principal of schools of the bor- 
ough of Lansdale, Pa. where he remained two years. 
Then resigned, and discontinued teaching for a time, 
and later took charge of the schools of North Wales 
for one term, then taught a school in Durham Twp., 
Bucks Co., two terms. He then became ambitious for 
the position of County Superintendent of Bucks Co., 
and being solicited to become a candidate, he consented, 
but was defeated by a small majority. In the fall 
of 1887, he took charge of the schools at Hatboro, Pa. 
for one term, then quit teaching and entered the ser- 
vice of the Phila. and Reading R. R. serving one 
year as Station Ag't at Lansdale, after which he re- 
ceived the position of Freight Ag't at Phila. Meth.

VI. Titus Albright, M. D. bn. in Bucks Co., Feb. 1, 
1861. Mrd. Lizzie E. Eckel, in 18S3. At the age of 
seventeen years he entered the Millersville State Nor- 
mal School taking a two years course, after which he 
taught school three consecutive winters in his native 
township. In the spring of 1882, he entered the of- 
fice of his preceptor Dr. Harvey Kratz for the pur- 
pose of reading medicine. In the fall of '82 he was 
admitted to the University of Penna. Medical Dept., 
wbere he graduated in the spring of 1885. In the fall 
of '85 he located at Hatfield, Montg. Co., to practice 
his profession, and where he still resides and enjoys 
a lucrative practice. Children: (VII.) Eva Viola Al-

Carpenter and miller. Luth. One child: 

VI. Reuben High Andrews, M. D. bn. in Hilltown 
Twp., Bucks Co., Pa., Jan. 20, 1850. He was the 
only child of Aaron and Barbara Andrews. His father 
was for some years a ' 'boss 1 ' carpenter, and later on 
purchased a small tract of land along a creek in Hilltown 
Twp. located about a mile west of Dublin, near the 
site of an old saw mill. He erected a dwelling house 
and a grist mill, and the family lived there until the 
father died. 

Reuben, after the death of his father, went to 
live with his grandfather Andrews in Marlborough 
Township near Berkyeomenville, Montg. Co., but in 
less than two years his grandfather also died and he 
went to live with his mother, who about this time 
married again to Henry S. Krout, a farmer of Bed- 
minster Township, Bucks Co. There Reuben worked 
on the farm, attending the district school during the 
winter months. 

When about eighteen years of age, he attended 
the boarding school then known as the Excelsior Nor- 
mal Institute situated at Carversville and prepared 
himself for teaching. He taught his first term of pub- 
lic school at what was then called the Upper Sellers- 
ville School. After this he attended one term the 
Keystone State Normal School at Kutztown. This 
he followed by another term of teaching, this time 
his own district school in Bedminster Township. At 
the same time he commenced the study of medicine 
under the tutorship of the family physician Dr. Moses 
Rice, of Hagersville. While engaged for a few 
months as a substitute teacher in New Britian Town- 
ship, Dr. Rice was taken ill and died. He continued 
his studies with Dr. Rice's successor, a Di. Klinger- 
man, but subsequently the late Dr. J. H. Krause of 
Plumsteadville became his preceptor. He entered the 
Medical Department of the University of Pennsylva- 
nia, and graduated in the spring of 1871. On the 
fourteenth of April of the same year he entered upon 
the practice of his profession at Kulpsville, Montg. 
Co., where he soon gained a liberal patronage. In 



— 61 — 

the fall of 1875, he married Miss Mary M. daughter 
of Nathan Beidler, of Bedminster, Bucks County. In 
the spring of 1876, he moved to Lansdale on the N. 
P. Railroad where he soon purchased a lot and erected 
a dwelling and an office. While here engaged in the 
active duties of his profession, he conceived the idea 
of publishing a monthly Medical Journal; and in 
March 1879 issued the first number of "The Medical 
Summary." In the early part of 1881, he bought a 
half interest in the "Lansdale Reporter," the local 
and weekly newspaper and printing establishment, 
and in the summer of the same year built a home and 
office for this business on Main Street called "Re- 
porter Building.'' In the spring of 1884, on account 
of failing health, and rapidly increasing duties pro- 
fessionally and with his Medical Journal, he sold his 
practice and dwelling to Dr. Samuel Seese. About 
the same time he bought a house on Twenty-third 
street Philadelphia, where he removed with his pub- 
lication, "The Medical Summary." Here he lived 
about a }*ear, sold his property and removed to Lans- 
dale, buying a building lot adjoining his former home. 
There he at once commenced to build one of the finest 
residences in that section at that time, and also at the 
same time buying the other half interest in the "Re- 
porter" newspaper and printing business. This busi- 
ness he conducted himself along with the Medical 
Journal for about a year when he sold the entire in- 
terest of the Lansdale Reporter Printing and Pub- 
lishing business and shortly afterwards returned to 
Philadelphia, on Columbia Avenue, where, since sell- 
ing out his practice in Lansdale, he has devoted al- 
most his entire time, doing only a select practice, to 
his medical publication "The Summary." 

The monthly issue of "The Summary" has not been 
less than 10,000 copies for several years past. It is a 
national Journal circulating in every state and terri- 
tory of the United States, and some in foreign coun- 
tries. 

He has three daughters, the two older ones, at 
the time of the publication of this book, are attending 
the Twelfth Grade in the George G. Meade, Grammar

Of these children Elhanan and Benny met with a 
very sad death. Clarence the eldest had gone to Port 
Providence for the mail, and when returning was met 
about i mile from home by his brothers. By the 
roadside was a sand hole, into which all jumped 
except little Louis. Suddenly the overhanging bank 
gave way and buried the three eldest and the fourth 
all but his head. Albanus told Louis to give the 
alarm, and help soon came. Albanus was rescued 
uninjured. Clarence was next reached, and was sup-

posed to be dead, but was resuscitated in a little 
while. As soon as possible Elhanan and Benny were 
reached, but both were dead, though only covered 
with eighteen inches of sand. The funeral of the two 
boys was largely attended. The ministers present 
were Rev's. C. I. Tompson, Jacob Meyers, Jacob 
Gottwals and C. C. Walker. The sight was a sorrow- 
ful one, and many a strong man broke in tears as 
they gazed upon the little forms so suddenly cut 
off upon the threshold of life.

Res. 2405 Master St., Phila., Pa. Professor of 
Music. Prof. Thomas O'Neill was born in Philadel- 
phia, Pa., Dec. 14, 1829. At a very early age he 
evinced a talent for music which he gratified by 
writing notes to any thing in the form of a melody 
that he heard whistled or sung. A talent, however, 
which his father thought not to encourage. In 1856 
he became organist and choirmaster of the Broad 
Street Baptist church in Philadelphia. He was sub- 
sequently induced to remove to Norristown, where for 
many years the music at the Frest Presbyterian church 
of which he was organist and choirmaster, w r as an at- 
tractive feature of the services. After ten consecu- 
tive years of service as principal of the music depart- 
ment at the Oakland Female Institute, at Norristown, 
then a flourishing school for young ladies, he volun- 
tarily resigned the position at the seminary in order 
to attend to outside teaching. Quite a number of his 
pupils occupy prominent positions. 

Mr. Elnord Beaver, a competent church organist 
of Norristown, was under his instruction for five 
years, and Miss Anna L. Cressinan, who succeeded 
him as organist at the F. P. ch. was his pupil for a 
like term of years. Among his brightest pupils is

his daughter, Mrs. J. Jay Gheen, of West Chester, 
who is a pianist of such signal ability that her music 
is not only a joy to her, but is an unfailing source of 
pleasure to her large circle of friends. 

Mr. O'Neiirs compositions are characterized by an 
originality and depth of feeling which proclaim him 
to be a composer cf decided talent. His "Morning 
Song" and "Among the Birds' 1 are little gems, while 
his " "Good-bye, Sweet Day" has been described as "a 
charming little bit of music, of that plaintive tone 
that never fails to touch a responsive chord in the 
heart of the listener." As a lecture?' and writer, Mr. 
O'Neill also deserves mention, his letters (as special 
correspondent) to the Norristown Herald, are graph- 
ic, complete and interesting in the extreme, he pos- 
sesses that rare faculty of putting into words the im- 
pression conveyed to his own poetic soul by beautiful 
music and brilliant effects, and some of his letters on 
this subject are the most charming we have ever read.

death. On December 8, 1892, between the hours of 
six and seven in the evening, he left his home on foot 
to transact some business affairs with a neighbor, dis- 
tant about one mile. He did not return at the ex- 
pected hour, and about midnight members of the 
family went to the place he had intended to visit and 
learned he had not been there. A searching party im- 
mediately started over the rout, through woods and 
fields, supposed to have been taken. 

Between two and three o'clock his lifeless body 
was found in a shallow pond of water, in his own 
woods, about fifty rods from his house. His coat and 
vest were open, his watch and money were missing. 
Suspicions of foul play were fully aroused, and were 
confirmed by further investigations. In a line from 
the spot where the body was found, about one fourth 
of a mile in length, along the trail of strange and 
peculiar footprints, were found an account book, and 
a purse and wallet from which the contents had been 
removed, all of which were identified as belonging to 
the deceased. An autopsy also revealed a number of 
contusions, caused by blows on the head. Great ex- 
citement prevailed in the vicinity, and hundreds of 
people visited the spot and surroundings daily. De- 
tectives were immediately employed. The county 
authorities offered a reward of $500 and a citizens' 
meeting of the surrounding vicinity an additional 
reward of $1000 for the apprehension and conviction 
of the guilty person or persons. 

His remains were interred at the Deep Run 
Mennonite church of which he was a member. On 
Dec. 12, an immense throng assembled to pay their 
last tribute of respect. By actual count, over 325 car- 
riages left his late residence in the funeral procession. 
He was much esteemed and highly respected by hosts 
of relatives, friends and acquaintances.

VI. Daniel M. Landis, M. D., bn. in Milford Twp., 
Bucks Co., Pa., April 17, 1864. Soon after his birth 
his parents moved to Hilltown Twp. , where he was 
brought up on the farm. He was always fond of go- 
ing to school, and always had the good fortune to be 
at the head of his class. In 1879 one of his teachers, 
Mr. A. R. Moyer, imbued him with the spirit to go 
to a high school, and accordingly in March, 1881, he 
was sent to the Quakcrtown High School. In the 
summer he worked on the farm again with his father. 
The next winter, 1882, he resided with his uncle, Dr. 
S. C. Moyer, and attended the Lansdale High 
School. His residence here no doubt had something 
to do with his future profession. In the fall of 1883 
he began teaching school, and taught for three suc- 
cessive winters. In the spring of 1881 he went to the 
North Wales Academy one course. He took up the 
study of medicine in the summer of 1886, with his 
uncle, Dr. S. C. Moyer. In the fall of that same 
year he entered the Hahnemann Medical College of 
Philadelphia, Pa., from which he graduated in April 
1889 as Doctor of Medicine, and Doctor of Homeo- 
pathic Medicine. In April of the same year of grad- 
uation he located at Perkasie, Pa., where he is still 
Eracticing his profession. He was mrd. to Lizzie

the Leondonian Seminary, and graduated in the Phil- 
adelphia Business College at the age of 20 years. He 
spent the next 15 years as clerk in store, three years 
at Blooming Glen and several years in Philadelphia, 
in the wholesale notion house of Mackey, Bodder & 
Co. , and 10 years with J. A. Hendricks at Perkasie. 
In 1879, when Perkasie Borough was founded, he 
was elected to the office of Justice of the Peace, and 
on May 10, 1890, he entered upon his third term, 
having now served about 13 years in that capacity. 
The latter part of 1881, he engaged in the news- 
paper business, and in company with Mahlon H. Sel- 
lers, under the firm name of M. H. Sellers & Co., es 
tablished the "Central News," a local weekly paper. 
Jn Feb. 1882 Mr. Sellers died, and his interest in the 
paper was purchased by Samuel R. Kramer, and 
since then the firm name has been Moyer and Kra- 
mer. The "News," after hard struggling in the be- 
ginning, soon obtained a firm footing and is now rec- 
ognized as one of the leading papers of upper Bucks

DESCENDANTS OF HENRY WISMER, SON 
OF JACOB WISMER. 



II. Henry Wismer, bn. in Bucks Co., Fa., about 
1730; died — . Mrd. Barbara Lederach in 1754. He 
was an enterprising, shrewd and prosperous man. 
From old documents in the possession of his descend- 
ants it can be seen that, of the entire family of Jacob 
Wismer, he (Henry) was probably the most promi- 
nent in wealth and business abilities. Agriculture 
was his chief pursuit. In 1773 he became owner of 
his father's farm of 210 acres in Bedminster. At the 
same time he had a farm in Hilltown of 110 acres, on 
which he lived and died. In 1793 he sold the home- 
stead with 120 acres to his son Abraham, and the re- 
maining 90 acres to one Ekel, and in 1805 he sold his 
Hilltown farm to his son-in-law John Funk. He re- 
ceived a life right for himself and wife. Funk was to 
reside on the farm and take good care of the old 
couple. He was bound to provide all the necessaries 
and comforts for old age, even to the point of carry- 
ing their firewood into their room and furnish them 
with five gallons of whiskey yearly as long as either 
of the old folks lived. Weaving and distilling whis- 
key were also carried on in connection with farming. 
Judging from items entered on his Da} r Book from 
1768 to 1800, we are led to believe that persons in 
need of money and work depended in a great meas- 
ure on him for assistance. It also appears that a few 
of his brothers were dependant on him for support 
towards the close of their lives. In 1803 he male a 
will, which reads as follows: 



— 140 — 

7fn the name of God, Amen. I, Henry Wismer of 
Hilltown township in the county of Bucks and 
state of Pennsylvania we were being of old age and 
weak in body but of perfect sound mind and memory 
thanks be to God therefore calling unto mind the 
mortality of my Body Do make and ordain this to be 
my last Will and Testament in manner following, 
first of all I Reccommend my sould into the hands of 
the almighty god that gave it and my body, I Rec- 
commend to the Earth to be buried in a decent Chris- 
tian manner at the discretion of my Executors here- 
after named, and Touching such worldly Effects 
which it has pleased God to bless me with in this life, 
I Give and dispose of the same in manner following. 
First of all after my debts and funeral charges is 
paid I do Will all my money that I have in hand and 
all my effects to my well beloved Wife Barbery as 
much as she pleases to keep of it, then it is my Will 
that my Executors hereafter named shall make a 
vendue and sell of my Effects what my wife don't 
want to keep, & Collect the money and Give it into 
the Hands of my widow that she may dow with all 
the money that is in hand and what will be made of 
the vendue what she pleases during her lifetime and 
after her decease nry Executors is to make sale of the 
effects that is left and pay it to my heirs. Some has 
got more away and some less, and so my Executors 
must pay to the eleven heirs of the money that is left 
and what will be made of the effects after my wifes 
decease to make them all alike, only my son Samuel 
he is not to Sheer with the rest because he has got 
his three hundred pounds aforehand if there is not 
anuf of the money that is left and maid out of the ef- 
fects then my Executors must take of the three hun- 
dred pounds which is to be paid down of the planta- 



— 141 — 

tion and make them all alike. My son-in-law John 
Funk is to pay 14 hundred pounds for my plantation, 
three hundred pounds in one year after my decease 
and then yearly and every year one hundred pounds 
is to be paid till the whole is paid and still as the 
payments is paid my Executors is to pay it to my 
eleven heirs sheer and sheer alike. Notabena my 
Daughter Nancy is to have 20 pounds less than the 
other heirs, because the 20 pounds goes to her 2 sons 
of her first husband. As soon as John Funk pays the 
three hundred pounds the first payment I Give my 
son Abraham Wismer one of the Executors full and 
ample power to make and execute a sufficient Deed 
of Conveyance unto the said John Funk clear of all 
encumbrance as well as myself could done if I was 
living. Notabena, I do will to my two Grandsons 
Jacob and Henry Rute ten pounds apice to be paid 
out of their mother Nancy's Portion to be paid out of 
the first payment of the plantation if there is anuf 
left. And last of all 1 do hereby Anominate my son 
Abraham Wismer of Bedminster Township County

last will and Testament and I do hereby utterly Dis- 
alow and Revoke all former Testaments wills Lega- 
cies and Executors. Relating this and Confirming 
this to be my last will and Testament. In Witness 
whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this

He was the third owner of the Wismer homestead. 
During the Revolutionary war, his father's teams 
were pressed into service by the Americans, and 
Abraham was sent along as teamster, more to take 
good care of and return the teams. In 1783 Abraham 
Wismer and one Martin Lowry buried the remains of 
the notorious outlaw, Moses Doane, who was shot 
along the Tohickon, on a farm adjoining the Wismer 
homestead. Mr. Wismer often referred to the mourn- 
ful appearance of the procession to the grave, com- 
posed of a few neighbors, two females, and a small 
dog. The women w T ept bitterly, and the dog showed 
his grief by stepping to the edge of the grave and 
looking into it. Children: Henry, Samuel, Isaac,

1851. Mrd. Susanna Detweiler. She was bn. — ; died 
July 16, 1861, of paralysis. She was found prostrate 
in the yard shortly after breakfast, life extinct. Her 
age was 88 y. 11 m. 1 d. On the occasion of her fu- 
neral 160 carriages accompanied her remains to the 
place of burial. 

Mr. Wismer was a farmer, sawyer, and weaver. 
He had but three days' English schooling, yet he was 
a fluent English and German reader, and also wrote 
both languages, keeping his accounts in the English 
language. He was a self-educated man, settling up 
estates, in the neighborhood, and transacting various 
other public duties in a time when there w T ere but few 
lawyers to advise and counsel. His six daughters had 
five spinning-wheels in operation at one time, and the 
sixth daughter did the reeling, and the father the 
reading in the evening. His children do not remem- 
ber of having received a cross word from him. His 
family government was mild yet firm. Each daughter 
received a spinning-wheel as part of her "outsetting". 
Several of the daughters learned to weave and did 
considerable of it while at home. Five of the daugh- 
ters had a silk wedding-dress, though most of their 
every-day wear was homespun. The old time lard 
lamps were used in the family, hot bricks being put 
under the lamps to keep the lard warm and thin. 
Rye bread was the staff of life. All the girls made 
full hands in the hay and grain fields, and raking 
leaves in the woods. Some of them also aided at the 
saw-mill. Menn. Children: Abraham, Elizabeth,

schools, and also conducted sinking-schools in the 
vicinity of his former home in Wayne Co., O. He 
was married to Amanda M. Miller, of Akrcn, O., 
Sept. 11, 1ST3. In 1882 they moved to Mitchell, 
South Dakota. He has been variously occupied as 
lumber merchant, land office clerk, land attorney, 
and at present occupies the position of Register of 
U. S. Office at Mitchell. He was also one of the 
founders of the University of Dakota, and is a mem- 
ber of its managing board. He is also prominent in 
religious circles, and is President of the South Da- 
kota State Sunday School Association. Meth. Ep.

VI. Henry Elton Kratz. M. A., Ph. D., bn. in Wayne 
Co., O., Oct. 11, 1819. He prepared himself "for 
college in the common and high schools of his native 
state, and supported himself by teaching. He first 
entered Denison University, Granville, O., where he 
remained two years, and then completed his collegiate 
course at Wooster University, Wooster O., graduat- 
ing with the degree of B. S. in 1871. Later the de- 
gree of M. A. was granted him by his Alma Mater. 
He at once entered upon the work of teaching, and 
has been Superintendent and Principal of schools in 
several important cities, principally those of Bucyrus, 
O., and Dexter, Mich. In both of these states he was 
frequently engaged in the institute work by the side 
of their best educators. In 1881, he went abroad, 
taking his family with him, and during two }'ears 
resided in London. While in Europe he made a 
special stud}' of systems of education, and methods 
of instruction. He met many of the leading educators 
of the Old World, and became familiar with their 
theories. Opportunities were offered him to observe 
school work there which he readily and profitably 
availed himself of, and returned to this country. The 
year 18S5 found him installed in the schools of Mitch- 
ell, Dakota, as Superintendent, a position he held for 
four years. He organized and graded these schools 
and put them in a condition second to none in the 



— 152 — 

Country. His pupils have found easy admission to 
the schools of our Leading cities. He promptly 
identified himself with the educators of the state, and 
has been present at every important educational 
meeting in Dakota since 1886. When the Educational 
Association organized the reading circle department 
he was made the chief officer, and in turn made the 
reading circle one of the vital educational forces of 
the state. He was three times unanimously chosen 
president of the State Educational Association, an 
honor not before conferred on any member. He was 
also prominently mentioned for the position of Ter- 
ritorial Superintendent of Public Instruction. At the 
first election for state officers, the leading educators 
and teachers all over the state made urgent appeals 
for him to consent to become a candidate for the of- 
fice of State Superintendent of Public Instruction. 
Against his better judgment he was finally induced 
to make an effort to secure the Republican nomina- 
tion. Unfortunately preceding nominations on the 
ticket, bunched the nominees in his part of the state, 
and he was defeated, although even then he received 
a large number of votes in the convention. 

In the spring of 1889 he was called to the chair 
of Pedagogy and principalship of the Normal De- 
partment of the University of South Dakota. He 
also completed a post graduate course in Philosophy 
and Pedagogy in Wooster University, and received 
the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. 

In November 1891, he was unanimously chosen 
Superintendent of the Sioux City, Iowa, schools, to 
succeed Prof. Chas. W. Deane. He completed the 
year's work in such a satisfactory manner, that he 
was unanimously re-elected for two years at a salary 
of $2,500 per year. Sioux City has a population of 
over 40,000, about 6,000 children are enrolled in her 
schools and 140 teachers are required to instruct 
them. From this it can be readily inferred that Dr. 
Kratz's present field of work is a broad one, and his 
responsibilities great. 

In addition to his other duties he conducts Teach- 
ers' Institutes, lectures from time to time, and occa- 



— 153 — 

sionally contributes articles on educational topics to 
the press, and is Director of the Lake Madison Chau- 
tauqua Assembly at Lake Madison, South Dakota. 
Taken altogether, it may readily be seen that Dr. 
Kratz is an exceedingly busy man. He was married 
to Lizzie M. Deal of Buevrus, O., July 19, 1876.

VI. Lee G. Kratz, bn. in Wayne Co., O., July 27, 
1858. He inherited musical tastes from his parents, 
both of whom were lovers of music, and each pos- 
sessed gifts and accomplishments exceeding ordinary 
attainments. He early exhibited marked endowment 
with these family traits, was diligent at school, and 
availed himself of high school privileges at Seville, O. 
After his father's death and breaking up of the old 
home, he went to live with his brother Reuben in 
Akron, O. , where he entered High School and came 
under the notice of Prof. N. L. Glover, the instructor 
in music, under whose influence and counsel he de- 
cided to make music his life study and work. For 
two years he engaged in teaching school, all the time 
pursuing his study in music. He attended Ohio Nor- 
mal Music School three terms, and spent one term in 
Dana's Musical Institute at Warren, O. Later he en- 
tered the College of Music at Cincinnati, O., where 
he graduated in 1882, with second honor of his class. 
He afterwards engaged in the work of his profession 
at Davenport, Iowa. Here his influence was felt as a 
teacher and organizer of Church Choirs, Quartettes, 
Male Choruses, and as author of musical composi- 
tions. His work in building up the Vocal Department 
of St. Catharine's Hall secured complimentary rec- 



— 154 — 

ommendation from Bishop Perry, of the Episcopal 
church. 

In 1887, desiring larger opportunities and fields 
he removed to Omaha, where success and prosperity 
has invariably attended all his enterprises, making 
him a typical Western man in spirit and work. He 
is Director of the Vocal Department of the Univer- 
sity of Omaha, has three church choirs under train- 
ing regularly, and is constantly giving concerts. He 
organized and is Director of the celebrated "T. K." 
Quartette, also the l 'Owls," a popular male chorus of 
40 voices. He has for the last two years given special 
attention to musical work in Chautauqua Assemblies.

Mr. Wismer was one of the best known citizens 
in the count}' of Lincoln, Ont., having through official 
business and otherwise become known to a large 
number of persons. While young he enjoyed the few 
educational advantages which the county afforded. 
After marriage he engaged in farming in which he 
was very successful. In Jan. 1861, he offered himself 
for municipal honors, and by a majority of one vote, 
w r as elected a member of the township council, in 
w r hat was undoubtedly the sharpest contested Mu- 
nicipal election ever held in the county of Lincoln. 
He was a member of the Twp., council for eight suc- 
cessive years. In 1870, he was elected Reeve of Louth 
Twp., which office he held for seven years. In 1875, 
he was elected Warden of Lincoln Co. He served as 
a member of the Louth Twp., council for 16 years. 
He lived on the shore of Lake Ontario, where he 
owned a farm of 80 acres which he sold for $12,000, 
and his estate at his death was worth 120,000. He 
w T as well known as a sterling and upright man, and a 
faithful worker for the best interest of the people, and 
enjoyed the high esteem of all who knew him.

Apr. 15, 1845. Children: Samuel, Esther, Jacob, 
Catharine, Mary, Elizabeth, Abraham. For second 
wife Abraham mrd, Mary, daughter of Joseph Over-

He was the fourth owner and occupant of the 
Wismer homestead. During his early life he also dis- 
tilled whiskey from apples on the farm. Thousands 
of bushels of apples were thus disposed of in the 
neighborhood. About 900 gallons of whiskey was the 
yield in a good season. This occupation so far carried 
on by every generation had its career ended by the 
subject of this sketch, who, from his earlier experi- 
ence, and a full realization of the danger to, and de- 
moralizing effects on the rising generation, could 
without the surrender of any convictions, abandon 
the heretofore popular "Still." 

Mr. Wismer and wives were members of the Old 
Mennonite church at Deep Run, of wnich he was a 
deacon thirty years. During his term as deacon some 
stirring events took place ending in a division of the 
church. He was a popular man in the community, 
well read and posted in the ordinary business transac- 
tions of his day. Settling estates, clerking s-iles, 
writing wills and agreements, &c, occupied part of 
his time. 

V. Samuel Wismer, bn. Nov. 14, 1814. Mrd. Eliza- 
beth Kulp, — . She was born June 11, 1823. P. O., 
Plumsteadville, Pa. Farmer. Resides on a part of the 
old Wismer homestead. During his early life time he 
had two remarkable escapes. When a few years of 
age lightning struck his father's house. The electric 
bolt descended through the chimney, followed the 
pipe to the stove and went through the 1 floor within a 
few feet of where he lay asleep in a little bed. 

While yet a boy he and his brother Jacob were 
sent to cut up a tree top. Jacob, who was several 
years younger, seized the axe and slashed around 
among the limbs. The result was startling. Samuel 
was standing near by on the ground while Jacob was 
perched a little higher. The axe descended and made 



— 17.1 — 

a clean cut through the hat to the skin of Samuel's 
forehead without drawing any blood or making a 
scratch. Mr. Wismer is a highly respected citizen, and 
he and wife are members of the Mennonite ch., Deep 
Run. Children: Eli, Anna. John, Mary, Elizabeth. 

VI. Eli Wismer, bn. Jan. 25, 1844, on the south- 
western part of the original tract, in Bedminster Twp., 
Bucks Co., Pa. He received a common school educa- 
tion in the district school at Deep Run, which was 
open four months and towards the close of his school 
days five months in a year. In 1865 he received a 
certificate from the Superintendent of Public Schools, 
to teach in the county. He taught four terms in his 
native township, and one at Plumsteadville. 

He was appointed Assistant U. S. Marshall to 
take the ninth Census of Bedminster Township in 
1870. In the same year he was married to Annie 
Myers, daughter of Joseph Myers, of Plumstead 
Township. She was born June 29, 1816. In 1871 he 
commenced farming on the farm on which he was 
born. At the organization of the Plumsteadville Dairy 
Men's Association in 1880 he was elected Secretary 
and soon after salesman for the association, which 
position he holds the twelfth eonsecutive year. 

His father's teaching, in early life impressed on 
him the evils arising from the use of intoxicants, and 
during the Constitutional Amendment Campaign he 
was among the leading agitators in his community to 
prohibit the manufacture and sale thereof as a bever- 
age. P. O., Plumsteadville, Pa. Farmer. Menn's. Chil-

* Buildings were erected on the other 50 acres in 1843 and 
since occupied by Samuel Wismer. So far every transfer was 
made from father to son, either by private sale, will or agree- 
ment. Jacob willed the homestead to his son Levi, and a 
life-right to his widow. Levi refused to accept it under the 
provisions of his father's will, and this forced it to be offered 
at public sale in Feb. 1891, for the first time since it was oc- 
cupied by the first ancestor Jacob Wismer about 165 years 
ago. The record of from father to son was also broken at this 
sale, the purchaser being a brother, and the occupant a neph- 
ew of the former owner.

V. Reuben W. Kratz, bn. in New Britain, Bucks 
Co., Pa., Feb. 23, 1838. In the fall of 1852 his father 
and mother died in the space of five weeks. Left an 
orphan at the early age of 11 years, he went to Plum- 
stead, Pa., where he attended one winter term of 
school. In the following spring he hired to H. K. 
Myers for eight months at farm work. Then appren- 
ticed to his brother Abraham at wagon-making, serv- 
ing one year and nine months. In the spring of 1856, 
he faced towards the West, believing there were 
better things in store for the young than in the 
densely inhabited East; went to Whiteside, Co., 111. 
and worked at wagon-making, breaking prairie with 
an ox team, threshing, &c. In 1860 he married Ema- 
line A. Swena, of Sterling, 111. In the spring of 1863 
they loaded their goods and effects in an old wagon 
and started for Kansas. Their whole wealth consisted 
of a team, wagon, bed, stove, a few minor articles of 
household goods, and $21 in cash. They started for a 
point in eastern Kansas to find a home for themselves, 
and on May 10, 1863, located where they now reside, 
in Appanoose Twp., Franklin Co., Kans. P. O., 
Michigan Valley, Kans. Here they lived in a log cabin 
with puncheon floor and clapboard roof. In August 
Mr. Kratz joined the state Militia, and served in 
Kansas and Missouri 18 months. While on such duty 



— 178 - 

the family remained without a protector, and he had 
permission to go home at times and get supplies for 
their maintenance. The nearest mill was 20 miles 
away and run only one day in a week. The nearest 
trading store was at Lawrence, 32 miles distant. The 
Militia was disbanded in 1864, and from that time 
Mr. Kratz was able to be at home and care for his 
family. Neighbors were a long distance apart. No 
settlement except along the streams, and it was com- 
mon to visit neighbors 10 or 12 miles distant. The 
Sac and Fox reserve was near by and Indians were 
plenty, but always peaceable and friendly. Mrs. Kratz 
was left alone one night, and sleeping with the doors 
open, several Indians entered to inquire for whiskey. 
She informed them the whiskey, if there was any, 
was at the wakeup, about three miles distant, and 
they retired. 

In the winter of 1865, through the kindness of 
two of their old neighbors in Illinois, Messrs. C C. 
Alexander, and John Benjamin, who advanced the 
money, they were able to buy a stock farm of 152 
acres; 37 acres of this was afterwards sold to assist in 
paying for the balance. In 1878, Mr. Kratz purchased 
240 acres, making a farm at this date of 355 acres. 
In the spring of 1866 he erected a log cabin 16x16 
feet foundation. This the family occupied until the 
fall of 1873, when a more commodious house was 
built, but this the family soon outgrew, and in the 
spring of 1886 a house costing over $3,000 was erected. 
In an early day Mr. Kratz determined to give strict 
attention to raising stock, and he has never allowed 
himself to lose sight of this idea. He has at times 150 
head of cattle, 40 head of horses, and 200 hogs feed- 
ing, making a specialty of fattening beef cattle. The 
business has not always been prosperous, owing to 
grasshoppers, chinch bugs and dry weather. School 
facilities have always been good — probably as good as 
many in the older states. Mr. Kratz has served on the 
School Board in his district 24 years. He and wife 
are members of the Congregational ch. Children: 
Frances, William, Horace, Lemuel, Amy, Harriet, 
Esther.

* While out herding stock he rode his horse onto an old 
well covered over with boards and dirt, and which breaking 
through, precipitated him down 108 feet to the bottom and 
the horse on top of him. His mother was the first to go down 
into the well by a hastily improvised windlass and rope to 
rescue the mangled remains of her first born.

archal appearance, and presence in Zion is a source 
of inspiration to his fellow laborers in the Master's 
cause. In old age he is still abundant in labors for 
his Redeemer, and a crown awaits him beyond. "Let

cal preacher's license, and began preaching. In the fall 
of this year he resigned his position as foreman of the 
printingoffice,and began to travel as an evangelist or re- 
vivalist on the interdenominational line, laboring in any 
church where called. He is a member of the "Heav-

V. Abraham Kratz Funk. bn. in Hilltown, Bucks 
Co., Jan. 20, 1810. His early years were spent on his 
father's farm. He attended school about four months 
usually in the winter, and a month or two during the 
summer. He commenced teaching in the public 
schools of the county, at the age of 18, under the 
county superintendency of Win, H. Johnson. He at- 
tended school at Freeland Seminary, at Freeland, now 
Collegeville, Montgomery Co., in 1859, and the Ex- 
celsior Normal Institute, at Carvers ville, Bucks Co., 
in 1861. After spending five years in farming during 
the summer and teaching in winter, he went to Chi- 
cago, 111., in the spring of 1863 and engaged in the 
Lumber business. After a residence of five years in 
Chicago, he went to Elkhart, and there entered into 
a co-partnership with his brother, under the firm 
name of John F. Funk and Brother, as publishers and 
booksellers. They continued the publication of the 
Herald of Tric?h and Der Ilerold der Wahrheit, and 
also issued during the continuance of this co-partner- 
ship a number of religious works, the most important 
of which was t ;, e great book of martyr*, in the Ger- 
man language, containing over 1100 quarto pages, 
and the complete works of Menno Simon, which was 
translated from the Holland and printed in English. 
In 1875 he became one of the principal stockholders 
in the Mennonite Publishing Co., which was then or- 
ganized, and has since held the position of secretary 
and treasurer of that institution. He married Annie

V. Jacob Silas Funk was bn. in Hilltown Twp., 
Bucks Co., Pa., Apr. 13, 18-12. He spent his early 
days on his father's farm, and received, as was cus- 
tomary in those days, a fair, common school educa- 
tion. He afterwards, during the early part of 1862 
and the summer of 1863, spent two terms at the Ex- 
celsior Normal Institute, at Carversville, Bucks Co. 
He taught in the schools of his native county, from 
1862 to 1865. In the spring of 1865 he gave up that 
vocation and went to Chicago, 111., and engaged in 
the lumber business. On the 28th of Sept., of the 
same year he purchased a scholarship in the Eastman 
Business College of that city, and took a commercial 
course, attending evenings only. After four years' 
residence in Chicago, he determined to engage in 
business for himself, and accordingly, in the spring of 
1869, located at Chillicothe, Mo., where he opened a 
lumber yard and commenced business on his own ac- 
count. On the 15th of January following (1870), he 
was married to Annie K. Stover, daughter of Jonas 
Stover, of E. Rockhill Twp., Bucks Co., Pa. He af- 
terwards became connected with the North Western 
Lumber Co., who had their mills at Eau Claire, Wis- 
consin, and extensive yards at Hannibal, Mo ; and 
on the 20th of April 1880 moved with his family from 
Chillicothe to Hannibal. Afterwards when the duties 
of his position required him to be mostly in the neigh- 
borhood where the mills of the company were located, 
he found it more economical and convenient to have 
his family in that vicinity also, and accordingly, on 
the 20th of July 1885, he removed to Minneapolis, 
Minn. He continued with the above firm eleven 
years, during which time he gained with them the 
highest esteem and respect, both for his conscientious 
business integrity and his excellent qualifications for 
the work in which he was engaged. In the spring of 
1890 he severed his relations with the N. W. Lumber 



— 219 — 

Co., but the warm feeling of esteem and respect which 
he had won for himself during these extended busi- 
ness relations continued to the end of his life. 

He took an active part in the various civil, social 
and religious movements of the day, and was always 
ready and willing to assist in all enterprises of public 
interest, and held continuously positions of responsi- 
bility and honor. Soon after his removal to Chilli- 
cothe, in 1869, he was elected superintendent of the 
Sunday-school of the Presbyterian church of that city, 
which position he held until his removal to Hannibal 
in 1880. He was converted and united with the Third 
Presbyterian church of Chicago during the time of 
his residence there. In 1871 or 72 he was elected 
elder of the First Presbyterian church of Chillicothe. 
He was secretary of the school board of that city, 
and through his influence was built the beautiful new 
school building, costing from $45,000 to $50,000. In 
1875 he was also member of the city council. During 
the last three years of his residence in Chillicothe he 
was correspondent of the Globe Democrat, a republi- 
can paper of St. Louis. During the summer of 1890, 
after severing his connection with the N. W. L. Co., 
he, with A. Fiero, was appointed, by the lumber 
manufacturers of the N. W., to inspect the system of 
grading employed by the leading manufacturers of 
the north-west, and their report was received with 
much favor and satisfaction. After the completion of 
this commission, he became connected with the T. B. 
Scott Lumber Co., of Merrill, Wis., and during a 
business trip through Illinois and Indiana, he was 
taken sick with a severe bilious attack, and after 
nearly a week of suffering in hotels, in Terre Haute, 
Ind., Chicago. 111., and on the road, he reached his 
home in Minneapolis, Minn., on the 22d of Septem- 
ber. The disease assumed a complicated form which 
resulted in blood poisoning, and after three weeks more 
of intense suffering, which he bore with patience, he 
died on the 15th of Oct. 1890, aged 48 v., 6 m., 2 d.

eleven terms, working on his father's farm daring the 
summer months. 

In the fall af 1882 he accepted the nomination of 
the Republican party as a candidate to the state 
legislature, which was tendered him; his party being 
in the minority in that year's campaign, he was, with 
the rest of the ticket defeated. In 1883 the second 
Mennonite church at Deep Run called him to the 
pastorate of that church, and he was accordingly or- 
dained to the ministry by Bishop Moses Gottshall, 
Oct. 13, 1883, and installed pastor of the same. Feel- 
ing the pressing need of an English paper in the in- 
terest of his branch of the Mennonite church, he, 
with the aid of Rev. N. B. Grubb, pastor of the 
church in Philadelphia, succeeded in getting out the 
prospectus of ^The Mennonite" which was laid before 
the conference and accepted as one of the periodicals 
of the church. He is still one of the editors of the 
paper, which has since been enlarged an el improved, 
and has steadily increased in popularity and circula- 
tion since it was started. On Nov. 24, 1893 he was 
ordained bishop by Rev. Win. 8. Godshall, assisteel 
by Rev. J. S. Moyer, at Deep Run, Pa., and has the 
spiritual oversight as bishop of the Deep Run and 
Souderton churches. At the latter place a neat and

of $100 a year, he was married. Three years later, he 
secured an appointment to a position in the Central 
school of St. Catharines, Ont. After four years of 
hard work, he was promoted to headmastership of 
the school. But the unceasing labor, the close confine- 
ment, and the loss of two of his children so wore 
upon his health, that in 1883 he resigned his position 
to seek some more active out door life. During the 
same year he began the study of medicine, and the 
next year he removed to Chicago; where in 1886 he 
received his degree at the College of Physicians and 
Surgeons, and at once settled down in the same city to 
engage in the practice of his profession. Children:

years, and for twelve years was employed in making 
surveys for making and publishing county maps, 
mostly in Michigan. He later moved to Emmons Co., 



— 237 — 

North Dakota, where he has been engaged for some 
years in farming. 

In July 1889, he was appointed Deputy Clerk of 
the District court, for the reason that he understood 
the German language. His part of the work was to 
do business with the Russian German people that 
reside in Emmons Co., N. D. and which business con- 
sisted mainly of taking final proofs and tilings for 
land. The Russian Germans greatly appreciated the 
favor of having in the office at the county seat, one 
who could converse and do business with them in their 
own language, and interpret and answer in German 
their German letters for them, and they soon came 
to the conclusion to do what they could to keep Mr. 
Geil in office at the county seat, and they soon had an 
opportunity of acting upon their conclusion. In Sept. 
1890, Mr. Geil was nominated by a vote of 45 to 16 
by the Republican county convention as a candidate 
for Register of Deeds, and in November of same 
year was elected to that office by a majority of 140, 
having received all the (150) Russian German votes, 
although said Russian Germans were nearly all Dem- 
ocrats. 

In January 1892 John F. Geil was appointed a 
Notary Public in and for Emmons, N. D. by the Gov- 
ernor of the state. In the same year (1892) Mr. Geil 
was nominated by acclamation as a candidate for Reg- 
ister of Deeds, for another term, by both Republican 
and Democratic county conventions, and at the elec- 
tion of November 8th of same year was elected to 
that office unanimously, — receiving all the votes cast. 

In addition to the duties performed as Register 
of Deeds, Mr. Geil docs conveyancing, Notarial 
business, interpreting, and sundry clerical work. 
Since filling these offices his residence has been at 
Williamsport, the county .<eat. Meth. Ep. Children:

Red River Valley, N. D. In 1892, he was transferred 
to the Wisconsin conference and stationed at North 
Greenfield in that state, within the suburbs of Mil- 
waukee. Mr. and Mrs. Lane, had previous to the 
meeting of conference in Wisconsin, in 1892, attended 
the Moody training school in Chicago.

ive preacher, and an energetic worker in the u Vine- 
yard of the Lord,' 1 and in Mrs. Lane, he has an able

and extent, according to the opportunities and de- 
mands of her position.

VI. Sylvester Moyer, D. D. S., bn. near Beamsville, 
Lincoln Co., Ont., Feb. 20, 1859, on the homestead 
of his grandfather where he spent the first 11 years 
of his life, and where he learned to prattle the 
"Pennsylvania Dutch, " which has been of such ines- 
timable benefit to him in his business life. When 11 
years of age he with the family left the old home- 



— 250 — 

stead, and for nearly a year thereafter he tended bar 
in a hotel. Daring the winter months of the four fol- 
lowing years he attended a country school, working 
for his board among the farmers. During the sum- 
mer months he was variously employed in a Flax 
mill, team driver, and "hired man," and thus man- 
aged to give his parents considerable assistance, and 
paj the expenses of his education. When 18 years of 
age he passed a teachers' examination, and at once 
began to "train the young idea how to shoot." This 
he continued to do for ten consecutive years. But the 
confinement of the school room and too close atten- 
tion to his studies in preparation for higher exam- 
inations somewhat overtaxed his physical powers. 
This coupled with a strong desire to cross the "Her- 
ring Pond" induced him to take a hurried trip to Eng- 
land during the summer of 1886. Before returning 
he spent a week in the "Land o'eakes" and took a 
short tramp among the farmers in the North of Ire- 
land. The return trip from Glasgow to New York was 
the roughest of the season. For six days as deep called 
unto deep he was obliged to heave about everything 
except the anchor. However the trip proved highly 
beneficial to his health. Although fond of teaching, 
but from the fact that teachers arc poorly rewarded, 
and stimulated also by mercenary motives and ex- 
pectations, he directed his attention to the profes- 
sions. He was then principal of the largest public 
school in Waterloo Co., and in receipt of the largest 
salary paid to a public school teacher in the county. 
But he felt that he had reached the meridian of his 
success, so he laid down the "ferrule" and took up 
the forceps. In due time he received the degree of L. 
D. S. , and soon after the degree of D. D. S. from the 
University of Toronto. Before the last candidate had 
handed his papers to the examiners, he was "enroute" 
to Gait, where he had bought an established practice, 
and by the time that the result of his examination 
reached him, he was in his office ready for business 
and "thirsting for gore." His first patient was a 
charity negro. Ominous he thought. But the cloud 
had no "silver lining." Brighter days soon followed;

traveling about thirty miles to his appointments, and

German language, the following year he returned to

of Delhi, Ont., Oct. 14, 1890. P. O., Delhi, Ont. 
Methodists. Dr. Honsberger received his early edu- 
cation in the district schools, going to school during 
the winter months, and during the summer assisted 
on his father's farm. But his ambitious young mind 
soon made him dissatisfied with his limited education, 
and the small opportunities which a farm life afforded 
for advancement. Accordingly at the age of 17, he, 
with his brother, began to prepare himself for the 3d 
class teachers' examination, and with the help of the 
lady teacher who boarded in their home, by improv- 
ing every spare moment often studying till midnight 
after a hard day's work on the farm, they passed the 
examination successfully. In the fall succeeding the 
examination he attended the Model School, in Cale- 
donia, obtained his certificate, and at the beginning 
of the New Year, began teaching. After teaching for 
3 years, he spent a term at the Collegiate Institute, 
Brantford, and in July 1880, passed the 2d class 
teachers' examination there, carrying off a scholar- 
ship given by that Institution for proficiency. He 
next attended the Normal School at Toronto, ob- 
tained his Professional 2d class certificate, and taught 
for two years more. But as is often the case he was 
only using the profession of teaching as a stepping- 
stone to something higher. Ever since his boyhood 
he had made up his mind to be a doctor, and now he 
was about to enter upon the fulfillment of that dream. 
In the fall of 1882, he began his medical course at 
Trinity Medical College, Toronto, passed his exami- 
nations successfully at the end of each year, and 
graduated in March 1886, both from Trinity Medical 
College and Trinity University, standing at the head 
of his class at the University. A few weeks later he 
sailed for England, where he spent six months con- 
tinuing his studies in the largest hospital, and under 
the most distinguished physicians of London. Here 
he passed another examination, taking the degree of 
Licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians, of 
England. He returned in November, and in the fol- 
lowing spring located in Delhi, a thriving little town 
in Norfolk Co., Ont., where he has worked a large

and lucrative practice. Though he has been less than 
six years in actual practice, Dr. Honsberger is already 
widely known throughout that district as a clever 
voting physician, whose ability is sure to gain for 
him a leading place in his profession.

studied one year in the law department of the Uni- 
versity of New York, after which he was admitted to 
the New York Bar. In 1884 he went abroad and re- 
mained in England two years for the benefit of his

He died Feb. 13, 1893, in the 66th year of his age. 
He was a well known resident of the Twelfth ward, 
Pittsburgh, Pa., and no other man in the ward has 
been more thoroughly identified with its interests 
than Mr. Nobbs, and his death will be universally re- 
gretted. Mr. Nobbs was born in London, England, 
Nov-. 2, 1827, and came to America when quite young. 
For over half a century he has been a resident of the 
Twelfth ward. For a number of years he was super-

Pennsylvania railroad shop, and has been engaged in 
his present business, that of tinsmith, since before

community, business and political. Several times he 
has been elected to councils, to the school board and 
to the office of alderman, and at the time of his death 
was the treasurer of the O'Hara school board, and

16, 1883. They began married life with very little of 
this world's goods, but by industry and frugality 
they became the possessors of some property. They 
settled on Lot 17, Con. 7, in Markham Twp., Ont., 
which they cleared, and on which they resided until 
the}- died. They were members of the Christian 
church, of which he was a Deacon for many years, 
and to which in early life they walked and carried 
the baby, the distance being six miles. They lived 
together 57 years, and celebrated their golden wed- 
ding on Monday, Oct. 16, 1876. (The wedding day 
falling on Sunday.) 

The family consisted of 14 children, of whom 11 
were living. Of the 65 living descendants, including 
husbands and wives, 43 were present at the golden 
wedding. Twenty-two were prevented from attending 
on account of sickness, and otherwise. The table 
was elaborately spread, in the center of which stood 
a six story cake with Mags rising from the center, on 
which the words "Welcome Home 1 ' were beautifully 
laid in gold leaf. Immediately before eating, the 
children sang the well known hymn, "Welcome 
Home," after which David Wismer and wife, their 
children with their husbands and wives, partook of 
the refreshments, and the grandchildren finishing the 
repast. 

The artist, Mr. Tomlinson, of Stouffvillc, being 
present, a picture of the family group was admirably 
taken, after which the various golden, and other 
presents, were placed on platters, and the company 
gathered in the parlor to witness the presentation of 
the gifts, and to listen to an address by John Milne, 
one of the sons-in-law, which was as follows: 



— 300 — 

Dear Parents: — It is with mingled feelings of regret and 
pleasure that we are here assembled together to commemorate 
the fiftieth anniversary of your wedding day. With feelings 
of regret that on account of sickness and other unavoidable 
causes there are some of our children deprived of the privilege 
of meeting with us to-day and partaking alike of the pleasant 
associations and remembrances that this meeting will afford 
to us all; and also with regret that in the course of nature 
there is no human probability or liklihood that so many of 
this family will ever be permitted to meet you again on this 
side of eternity. But still we meet with united feelings of 
pleasure to know that God in His divine providence has 
graciously permitted you and us to enjoy a meeting of this 
kind, one which is granted to hut few in this world. When 
we, your children, cast our minds back through our younger 
years we cannot but admire and derive great pleasure in 
contemplating the care and diligence you manifested in 
raising so large a family in such a manner as would enable 
them all to become honest, industrious and useful members 
of society and we trust in this respect your efforts have not 
been altogether in vain. We cannot but call to mind that in 
all your teachings you did not forget to continually draw our 
attention to the all important fact that there was an All-wise 
Providence to whom we should always look for guidance 
and support through our walks in this life. We must now 
congratulate you that God has so far blessed you with health, 
strength of mind and body, and prosperity in the things of 
this world far above the average of those of your ages, and 
now, dear parents, as we are met together on an occasion 
never to be forgotten, and one that will never occur again 
during our lives and in token of our love for you, and as 
remembrances to be cherished by you, dear father, we 
present you with these few small gifts, and to you dear 
mother we also present a few tokens of our love and esteem. 
These gifts, though small in themselves and representing but 
little in value, still they are rich in the love and esteem 
which we have towards you. Our united prayer is that God 
in His goodness may see fit to bless you both with many 
years of happy and peaceful companionship together, and 
when you are done with all the troubles and trials of this 
earthly career, you may have a seat in that eternal home 
promised to those who remain faithful to the end; and also 
when we, your children, and our families, have done with 
the things of this life, our humble prayer is that we may be 
permitted to meet with you there and be as one happy 
family united in Heaven. In conclusion we all say for once 
more, God bless you and all your posterity. Amen. 

After the address the hymn ' 'Shall we gather at 
the River," was heartily and feeling-ty sung by all. 

Mrs. Wismer responded in a few \v T ords, by 
thanking her children and grandchildren for the love 



— 301 — 

and esteem shown by thorn, and for the harmony 
exhibited towards each other, and presented each 
with a piece of the wedding cake. 

Mr. Wismer also responded in a very interesting 
manner, referring back to the time when his father 
and mother with Their six children, in the year 1805, 
moved from Bucks Co., Pa., to Markham, Ont., and 
described many of the trials the pioneers encountered, 
the implements used by them, and his wedding trip 50 
years ago, when he and his wife went on horseback 
to get married. He then closed by thanking, in a 
very impressive manner, his children and grandchil- 
dren for the presents made to him and their mother, 
urging them to diligence and honest dealings in their 
duties of this life" Children: Nancy, Levi, Eli,

Scotia denies to so many of her sons. Chopping and 
clearing land occupied the first five years of his ex- 
perience in Canada, when he was appointed teacher 
in the school in Feversham, county of Grey, with no 
other qualification than youth, energy, and the limited 
education acquired at the Parochial school in his na- 
tive parish. After three years service as teacher, he 
engaged in business in Feversham, at which he con-

Mr. Black, when a boy about two }^ears old, was 
taken by his grandmother Catharine Black, (Nee 
Wismer), with whom he lived until she died when he 

21 



— 310 — 

was about ten years old. During- the time he lived 
with his grandmother he attended school very regu- 
larly winter and summer; but at that time the coun- 
try school was only an apology for a school, as many 
of the teachers were very indifferent, in fact, some of 
the pupils were better qualified to teach than the 
teacher. After his grandmother's death he went home 
to his father and mother for a short time, and then 
was placed with a farmer in Bedminster Twp., to do 
the chores in and around the house and barn and go 
to school, which was a very advantageous change to 
him so far as the school was concerned. He attended 
Deep Run school during those two years most of the 
time, winter and summer. An excellent teacher had 
charge of thw school who took great pride in seeing 
his pupils learn. 

At the close of his farm life Mr. Black began to 
look around for something to do whereby he could 
realize money for his labor. The best paying offer 
was that of "tow boy" on the canal, which his mother 
opposed very much, and also gave him some advice 
which he has never forgotten, and which no doubt 
has kept him out of many difficulties. The people, at 
least some of them, at that day thought the occupa- 
tion of a boatman was degrading. But notwithstand- 
ing some "tow boys" have risen to exalted stations — 
one to the Presidency of the United States, and an- 
other to the Attorney Generalship of the common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania. In the fall of 1839, Mr. 
Black hung up the tow line for good and cast his eye 
in another direction. In December 1839 his father 
bound him an apprentice, to learn the art and mystery 
of the printing business, to Gen. John S. Bryan, 
then the publisher of the Doylestown Democrat, and 
the printing office was the college from which he 
graduated in 1811. His master was always kind to 
him and trusted him implicitly with much of the 
financial matters in the establishment. In those days a 
boy learning the printing business in a country office 
had three days in the office, and three days out carry- 
ing the mail and newspapers. That system has long 
since been abolished. 



— 311 - 

Being free in 1841 he made a pilgrimage to Phil- 
adelphia in search of employment, which he soon 
secured, and where he worked for twenty years, ten 
of these years he was foreman of the establishment at 
a good salary for those days. In March 1865 he 
moved to New Castle, Pa., where he published the 
JVew Castle Gazette and Lawrence County Democrat 
for some fourteen or fifteen years, but did not get 
rich, being more anxious to help others than himself. 
In 1872 he was elected Mayor of the City of New 
Castle, Pa., as a Democrat, over his Republican op- 
ponent, his majority being 119 votes. The usual 
Republican majority in the city was from six to eight 
hundred. 

On the first day of January 1879 he was ap- 
pointed to a clerkship in the Auditor General's 
Department of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 
In May 1881 the administration changed and conse- 
quently the clerks changed. He then went to Wat- 
sontown, Northumberland county, and conducted a 
newspaper establishment for some time, when he was 
persuaded to take a clerkship in a bank — the hardest 
work he ever did — the business was entirely new to 
him, having no experience at all in that line of busi- 
ness. After four years he relinquished his position in 
the bank and went back to the printing business, at 
which he was working when elected Alderman of the 
Sixth Ward of the City of Harrisburg.

CHRISTIAN WISMER, SON OF JACOB 
WISMER. 



II. Christian Wismer, bn. — ; died Feb. 20, L795. 
At the close of his life he resided with Jacob Angeny, 
Jr. His share of his father's estate, and a small leg- 
acy from Jacob Sowder, was held in trust by Henry 
Wismer. In 1796 all that remained of Christian's 
estate was divided anions: his remaining- brothers and 
sisters. The above division of his estate is also con- 
clusive evidence that he had no issue. A prominent 
item among his funeral expenses is 2 gallons and 2 
quarts of whiskey. 

''In drawing conclusions from Henry Wistner's 
Day Book, we are led to believe that John and Chris- 
tian were the most prominent of the three wild sons 
of Jacob Wismer the first."
