PREFACE. 



Genealogies are profitable, inasmuch as they are 
of great interest to all descendants, and become more 
and more so to future generations in tracing back 
their lineage. 

There is a growing feeling in man}' families in 
this respect, and family pride is increasing with a 
desire to know more of one's ancestors. 

In this our second attempt to prepare a family 
genealogy, it has been our aim and purpose to make 
it as correct, accurate, and complete as possible. 

However, in some respects the work is incomplete 
owing to the failure of a very few of the connections 
to respond to in(|uiries for information and data. 

The design of this genealogy is to i)erpetuate 
the memory of our worthy ancestor, John Valentine 
Kratz, and to gather in one volume the names of his 
many descendants. 

We acknowledge ourselves inde))ted to many of 
the friends for their kindness in furnishing informa- 
tion for this genealog}'. Prominent among those who 
have shown great interest in the work, and furnished 
us much information are the following: Abraham F.

INTRODUCTION. 



Keliirious prineiplrs have been important factors 
in American civilization. 

Indeed it may Ije c|aestioned if an\' other source 
could have supplied the stren^rth necessary to enduie 
the hardships and danirers braved by the tirst setth^rs 
on our Atlantic seaboard. They have also performed 
an ecpially inn)ortant work in the upbuildinir of 
every section of our great countr\', in all that tj:lorities 
It and makes it the home of a free, intelliofent, and 
N'irtuous people. 

li was said of the Christ. "Herod will seek the 
youn<r child to destroy him." which illustrates the 
animus of the world toward [)rinci[)les claiming reg- 
nant authority l)y virtue of inherent right, as it 
sometimes seems the only way to debase a hated 
principle is to persecute its living enbodiment. Such 
|)ersons are subjected to all the indignities that ma- 
licious cunning may regard necessary to accomplish 
its purpose. 

Persecution makes conspicuous the principles, 
surrounds with a halo the brow of its martyrs, who, 
as the world progresses, are lifted to their niche in 
the temple of fame. 



We make then, but a modest affirmation when' 
we (Icclarc the name of our first ancestor on American 
soil. John \ 'alcntinc Kratz, worthy of Honorable 
iiiculion. llv was a native of Germany* as shown by 
an old family Bil)le, handed down direct from him, 
and held as an licirloom by his family. 

His reliirious principles were those of the Men- 
nonites, for which he was driven by persecution from 
his native land to find a home in America, where he 
arrived Oct. 16, 1727, as shown by a book entitled 
''Rupp's Thirty Thousand Emigrants into Pennsyl- 
vania from 1727 to 1776." 

As advocates of peace principles, the Menno- 
nites are far in advance of the prevailing sentiment in 
this last decade of the Nineteenth Century, and our 
ancestors w ere fully a century and a half in advance 
of the times. But, although, so far in advance their 
ideas must not be regarded chimerical, for inspira- 
tion has declared, "They shall beat their swords into 
plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks, 
nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither 
shall they learn war any more." 

When this prediction has received its fulfillment, 
the man wdio centuries before believed its underlying 
principles, advocated it, and suffered for it, will be 
honored more than a C^\?sar, or a Napoleon. "He 
shall be called a son of God." 

The influence of such a man on his posterity, can 
hardl}^ be overestimated, and justifies the expectation 
of an honest, courageous, and intelligent people, 
which has been fully realized in a family that has 
spread over nearly every portion of the United States, 



See foot note page ii, 



and Canada, and is represented in every profession 
and walk in life, from the farm, the workshop, up 
to the higher schools, Colleges and Universities. 

The family is fortunate in having a Historian in 
the person of Rev. A. J. Fretz. who is connected 
with it through both of his parents, and has proven 
himself competent for the work. Ma\' his work prove 
such an incentive to the further representatives of 
the family that all may lead such noble lives as shall 
prove them worthy descendants of a noble sire.

LIST OF ICXPLANATIONS 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 consecu- 
tively' from first to last. The Roman numerals placed before 
each name indicates the generation to which they belong, as 

I. John Philip Kratz, (First generation). 

II. John Valentine Kratz, (Second generation). 

III. John Kratz, (Third generation). 

IV. Valentine Kratz, (Fourth generation), etc. 
Beginning with the fir^t (I.) ancestor John Philip Kratz, 

all his children are named in the order of their birth. Then 
follows his youngest son John Valentme Kratz, (the ancestor 
in America), (II. Generation) and his children (III. Generation) 
next. John being the oldest, is followed down to the last of his 
descendants. Then the other children of John Valentine Kratz 
having issue, are taken in the order of birth and carried down 
to the last of their descendants in like manner. 

Where marriages occur between members of the connec- 
tion the husband carries the record. In all such cases a num- 
bered reference is placed after the name and marriage of the 
wife, as for example (See Index of References No. i). In the In- 
dex of References will be found No. i, Martha Cline, Page — . 
On the page given, in the body of the book, the family records 
will be found. In the general Index will be found the names 
of all the males of eighteen years and over, and the maiden 
names of all the females of eighteen years and over; also 
the pages on which their family records are given in the 
body of the book. 

To find family records See Index of B ranches, where 
names of all that had issue of the second, third and fourth gen- 
erations are given.

THE KRATZ FAMILY HISTORY. 



I. John Philip Kratz, father of the ancestor of 
the Kratz family in America, was born in Germany, 
Oct. 8th, 1665, and died there in 174:6, aged 80 years. 
His wife, died in 1710. Their children were (II.) 
Anna Eliza, born in 1695. (II.) John, born 1697, died 
1704. (II.) John Philip, born 1699. (II.) Anna Maria, 
born 1703. (II.) Anna, born 1705. (II.) John Valentine, 
born 17»t7. (II.) Anna Elizabeth, born 1709. 

II. John Valentine Kratz, youngest son of John 
Philip Kratz. was born in 1707, in the Palatinate, a 
province of Germany, bordering on the east side of 
the Rhine.* He died in 1780, aged about 73 years. 
He emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1727. when he was 
20 years old, and arrived in the ship '"Friendship", 
on the l()th of Oetol)er of said year. 

The vessel set sail on the 20th of June, making 
the v()\age in nearly four months. It is said that one 
of his sisters came witli liiin to this country. Of her 
we have been unal)le to learn anything further. 

Like many others, persecuted in the land of liis 
nativity, on account of his religious faith, he turned 
his face toward the new world, the land of religious 
freedom, leaving the parental roof, the scenes of his 
youth, and all the kindred associations of the old liome, 
to make his abode amonir strangfers in a straniic land. 



* By some of the connection, it is thought that John VhI- 
eutine Kratz was a native of Switzerland, but of this we hive 
uo positive proof According to Rupp's 30,000 names, he was 
one of 46 emigrants, who emigrated with their families, in all 
about 200 persons, from the Palatinate to Pennsylvania in 1727. 
However, during the persecution of the Meunoiites in Switzer- 
land by the Calvinists, many of them found reluge for a time 
in the Palatinate, and afitrwards emigrated to other countries.

litre lie luavcd the trials and hardships incident to a 
new and sparsely settled cou.itr}^, in which wild 
heasts and savage red men abounded. Here, he with 
others who like himself had been driven from their 
homes across the sea by the cruel hand of persecu- 
tion. aide(l in erecting shrines and altars around 
which they worshiped the God of their fathers. Here 
h(^ j^rospered and enjo3'ed the fruit of his labors. 
Here he lived the quiet unassuming life of an Ameri- 
can citizen, and during the period that tried men's 
souls, he remained true, and loyal to the American 
cause. He 3'et lived when the colonies began the 
arduous struggle for freedom from crowned tyranny, 
and died amid the thunders of the battles of the Rev- 
olution which brought the freedom his children after 
him enjoj'ed. 

John Valentine Kratz settled in Avhat was then 
Salford Township, Philadelphia County, now Mont- 
gomery County, Pa., where he purchased two tracts 
of land, one from Gerhart Clemens, and one from 
the commissioners of property. By warrant granted 
under the lesser seal beaiing date Aug. 3, 173-1, there 
was surveyed to John Valentine Kratz on the 12th 
day of March following a tract of land in Salford 
Township, containing 163 acres and 71 perches, Avith 
allowance of six percent, for roads and highways, and 
for which he paid £25, 6s., 8d., and received a patent 
therefor on Feb. 14, 1736, and is located in Upper 
Salford. It extended on both sides of the Skippack 
road to the crossroad below Salfordsville. The other 
tract which he purchased fi'om Gerhard Clemens and 
wife, Jan. 30, 1736, contained .53 acres, and for which 
he paid £53. This tract is located in Lower Salford, 
and was adjoining his first purchase. Here he built 
the first house where Milton H. Alderfer now lives. 



— 13 — 

He also purchased another tract of land contain- 
ing 68 acres. 

In the tax list of 1776 John Valentine Kratz was 
assessed for 150 acres in Upper Salford,* and 150 
acres in Lower Salford. After the death of John Val- 
entine Kratz, the Old Homestead and 150 acres of 
land were held by his youngset son, Isaac, who was 
born in 1749. On the other farm of 150 acres in Up- 
per Salford, John Valentine Kratz built the residence 
where Henry Weber now lives, for his son Valentine. 

By his descendants it is said that John Valentine 
Kratz married Ann Clemens, presuma))ly the daugh- 
ter of (jerhart Clemensf. She died in 1793. 

They were among the original members of the 
Mennonite church of Salford. 

The tirst meeting house in Salford, in which they 
worshiped was probably built in 1738. This becoming 
too small was taken down and built larger about 1770. 

The present meeting house was built in 1850. In 
the adjoining grave-yard to this church were laid to 
rest all that was mortal of our worthy ancestor, John 
Valentine Kratz, one hundred and eleven years ago, 
and his wife Ann ninety-eight years ago. There un- 
disturbed may their ashes rest until the final gather- 
ing of the faithful to come forth to inherit the king- 
dom prepared for them. Their children, in the order 
of their birth, were as follows: John, Michael, Ger- 
hart, Philip, Abraham, Isaac, Anna, a daughter^ Val- 
entine and Isaac. 



* Salford Township was divided into Upper and Lower 
Salford in 1741. 

t Gerhart Clemens, born in 1680; died about 1745. Emi- 
grated from Europe to Pennsylvania in 1709. Settled in Mont- 
gomery Co., where he made various purchases of lands until 
he owned in all about 1000 acres.

after a hard day's work on the farm, they passed the 
examination successfully. In the fall succeedinir the 
examination he attended the Model school in Cale- 
donia, obtained his certificate, and at the beirimiinir 
of the New Year, be^ran teachinir. After teachiiiL'" for 
three years, he spent a term at the Colleo-iate Institute, 
Brant ford, and in July 1880 passed the 2d class teach- 
ers' examination there, carrying oil" a scliolarship 
given by that Institution for jn-oticiency. He next 
attended the Normal Sehool in Toronto, obtained 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 ^Nlarch, 1886, both from Trinitv ^ledical

Colleoe and Trinity University, standing at the head

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, England. 
He returned in November, and in the following spring 
located in Delhi, a thriving little town in Norfolk Co.", 
Ont., where he has worked a large and lucrative prac- 
tice. Though he has been less than four years in act- 
ual practice. Dr. Honsberger is already widely known 
throughout that district as a clever young j^hysician, 
whose ability is sure to gain for him a leading place 
in his profession.

VII. John Honsberger, ^I. D., born in Lincoln Co., 
Ont., June 5, 1867. Attends Protestant p4:)iscopal Ch. 
At the age of five he began to attend the district 
schools. He soon became passionately fond of stud}^- 
ing and always stood well. In 188<) or 1881 he went 
up for the high school entrance examination at Beams- 
ville, Ont., which he passed. From that time public 
school was neglected, and in a short time he ceased 
attendance, preferring to studv at home on the farm. 
In th(^ fall of 1883 he started to high school at Beams- 
ville, and the following year took out a teacher's cer- 
tificate. In the fall of ISSi he attended Xormal school 
and received his Professional teacher's certificate. He 
then attended Canada Business College at Hamilton, 
until the following April, when he returned to high 
school. In the summer of 1886 he matriculated in 
medicine at Toronto University, and in October of 
the same year he entered Trinity Medical College. 
After a four year's course he was graduated at Trinity 
University with honors and received the degree of 
M. D.cey. In the spring of 1889 his father died, 
before witnessing what had been his life long ambi- 
tion, viz: to see him made a physiciam. His vaca- 
tions during bis course were spent in the office of his 
highly esteemed preceptor. Dr. Jessup of St. Cath- 
arines, to whom he is deeply indebted for much most 
valuable assistance. On May 24, 1890, he removed 
to Buffalo, X. Y., where he has since been engaged 
in the practice of his profession, and where he is re- 
ceiving his share of fame and shekels. S.

VI. Henry Elton Kratz, M. A. Ph. D., born in Me-

for college in the common and high schools of his 
native State, and supported himself by teaching. He 



— 42 — 

tii-<l entered Deiii^on L'niversity, Granville, Ohio, 
where he remained two years, and then completed 
his college course at Wooster University, \yooster, 
Ohio, graduating with the degree of B. S., in 1874. 
Later the degree of M. A. was granted him by his 
Alma ]Mater. for sul)sequent work performed. He at 
once entered upon the work of teaching and has been 
superintendent and principal of schools in several im- 
portant cities, principally those of Bucyrus, Ohio, 
and Dexter, Michigan. In both of these States he 
was frec[ue,jtly engaged in the institute Avork by the 
side of their best educators. In 1881 he went abroad, 
taking his family with him, and during two years re- 
sided in London. While in Europe he made a special 
study of systems of education, and methods of in- 
struction. 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 prolitably availed 
himself of^ and returned to this country much broad- 
ened in his views of education. The year 1885 found 
him installed in the schools of ^litcliell, Dakota, as 
superintendent, a ])Osition he held for four yeai'S. He 
organized and graded these schools, and i)ut them in 
a condition second to none in the country. His pupils 
have found easy admission to the schools of our lead- 
ing 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 chii'f 
officer, and in turn made the reading circle one of the 
vital educational forces of the State. He was three 
times unanimously chosen piesident of the State Ed- 
ucational Association, an honor not before conferred 
on any meiuber. He was also prominently mentioned 
for the position of Territorial Superintendent of Pul)- 
lic Instruction. At the first election for State officers, 
the leading educators and teachers all over the State 
made urgent appeal to him to consent to l)ecome a 
candidate for the office of State Superintendent of 
Pu))lic Instruction. Against his better judgment he 



— 43 — 

wjis tinally iiidiut'd to iiuikL' an t'tiort to seciirt' tlie 
RL'})iil)lican nomination. Unfortunately preceding 
nominations on the ticket, Ijimched the nominees 
in his part of the State, and he Avas defeated, al- 
though even then he received a hirge nunil)er of votes 
in the convention. 

In the spring of ISSl*. he was called to the chair 
of Pedagogy and Principalship of the Normal De- 
partment of the University of South Dakota, which 
position he still occupies. Recently he completed a 
j)ost graduate course in Philosoplu' and Pedagogy in 
Wooster University and received the degree of Doc- 
tor of Philosophy. "'In November ISiH^ he was unan- 
imously chosen Su})erintende t of the cit\' schools, to 
succeed Prof. Cliarles W. Deane. resigned,'' at an 
increase of sahuy. which was fixed at '^:^,1(>U n year. 
In addition to his other duties he has the chief man- 
agement of the S. Dakota State Teacher's Circle, 
conducts Teachers' Institutes, lectures from time to 
time, and occasionally contributes on educational 
topics to the i)ress. At the first South Dakota Chau- 
tauipia held in the sunnner of IMU at Lake Madison, 
he was director of the sunnner school, and was unan- 
imously re-elected as director for 18'J2. Taken alto- 
gether it may be seen that Dr. Kratz is an exceedingly 
busy man.

insisted, and asked him to set a })rice. He then tliought 
that if he should ask double what the eow was worth, 
the man would leave without buying. But, contrary 
to his expeetations, the man laid down the money 
and drove the cow otl. Aftel the man was gone, he

term at the Excelsior Normal Institute at Carversville, 
Pa., after which he taught school eleven terms, work-

On Sept. 18, 1880, he was mrd. to Sarah, daughter of

In the fall of 1882 he accepted the nomination of the 
Republican party as a candidate for the State Legis- 
ture, which was tendered him: but his part}' 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 be their 
minister, and he was accordingly ordained by Bishop 
Moses Gottschall on Oct. 13, 1883, and installed 
pastor of same. Feeling the pressing need of an 
English paper in the interest of his l3ranch of the 
Mennonite church, he with the aid of N. B. Grubb, 
pastor of the church in Philadelphia, succeeded in 
October, 1885 in getting out the prospectus of 
^^The Mennonite^'^ which was laid before the con- 
ference and accepted as one of the periodicals of the 
church. He is still one of the editors of the paper,

his attendance at district school, assisting his father 
when school was not in session in the work on the 
farm and in the chores about the place. Between the 
years of '65 and 'TO he induced his father to send him 
for several short terms to Line Lexington Seminary, 
then a select school for boys and girls. In the spring

he mcluced his father to send him for a twelve weeks' 
term to the Excelsior Normal Institute at Carvers-

a provisional certificate with No. 1 in every ])ranch. 
He was thereupon elected Principal of the schools of 
Rittersville in that county. After teaching there sev- 
eral months he was granted a professional certificate. 
In the spring of '75 he once more returned to Millers- 
ville and remained to finish his course, graduating in 
the classs of '76. He graduated with the degree of 
Bachelor of the Elements, and had conferred upon 
him one of the honors of his class. In the fall he 
took charge of a school at Breinigsville, Lehigh Co. 
During this term he gained })rominence among the 
teachers of the county. At Teachers' Institute of

mained nearly two years. The following year he was 
with the late Reuben Stover, and the succeeding year

pursuits. He has added man}- new and rare plants 
to the known flora of Bucks county, besides having 
discovered one new to the State flora and also a 
variety not before known to science. His herbarium

known as the '"Valley Park farm." and occu'pied bv 
his great-grandson, Reuben Kratz. 

He always spelled his name ''Fillip Crots." In 
his old days he became very childish. It is related 
that as his daughter-in-law was busy at work one da}', 
she thought it would be company for both of them to 
have him near her. He sat and looked at her very 
sharply for some time, and then said to his son Philip 
who had just come in, "Philip. I think you are old 
enough to get married," to which he replied, ''Yes, 
father, I think I am." Then he said, "here is a nice 
young woman who seems right industrious, and I 
think she would make you a very good wife. They 
then had ])een married ten years. 

During the Revolutionary war, a company or 
detatchment of the Federal army was stationed at 
Danborough, Pa., and owing to their foraging raids, 
Avere known as the "Press Gang." While the ances- 
tors were loyal to the American cause, they did not 
relish losing their property, and acted accordingly. 
Upon one occasion a young calf was gobbled up and 
taken away by the "Press Gang,'' whereupon Anna, 
the oldest daughter, saddled her pony and rode over 
to Danboro, three miles distant, to claim it as her 
individual propert}', but before she could make her 
errand known to the justice, she saw it "knocked 
in the head," and she sorrowfully returned. During 
her absence from home word came that the "Press 
Gang" were returninor for hordes. Her father

and the boys accordingly hid them in the dense 
thicket close by. Her mother, Susanna, invited the 
foragers in, and while she was entertaining them at 
hmch, Anna arrived and took in the situation. All 
she could do to prevent discovery was to take the 
pony in the cellar from the outside, which was done, 
and she kept the horse company, fearful all the time 
that he might whinny, during her mother's fre(iuent 
visits to tlie cellar for refreshments. They finally left 
empty handed.

the Mennonite church at Deep Run, and are buried 
there. Children: Anna. John, Elizabeth, Mary,

delphia. Pa., from which he graduated in March 1857. 
During his time of study in Columbus, Ohio, he had 
charge of the dissecting room, and aided in the E3'e 
Intirmar}'. These two circumstances gave him a taste 
for surgery and diseases of the eye, which were not 
neglected, and were of much advantage to him in the 
general practice of his profession. After graduating 
he returned to Columlnis, Ohio, and commenced to 
practice, giving especial attention to the eye and ear, 
though not abandoning the general practice. 

The war breaking out in 1861, a call was made 
for medical men. a law being passed requiring all to 
pass examination; five years of practice being re- 
quired, or its equivalent in Hospital for assistants, 
and ten years for surgeons. Although in the exami- 
nations he .'ind another stood equal (third) in the list 
of over fift}* admitted to examination, yet he could be 
appointed assistant only. In the summer campaign 
in West Virginia he had the entire work of the regi- 
ment until winter, when he had the first severe sick- 
ness of his life, and from which he probal)ly never 
fully recovered. The next summer (1862), foreseeing 



— «s — 

the probal^le same experience of all the work with 
part of the pay of surgeon, he resigned, and was in a 
few days appointed surgeon of another Regiment, the 
95th Ohio, the former being the 11th Ohio Infantry. 
They w^ere immediately sent to the field in Kentucky, 
and on Aug. 30, 1862, engaged in the battles (three 
engagements in one day) of Richmond, Ky., where a 
large part of the regiment were captured, :ind many 
killed and wounded. Remaining six weeks in the en- 
emy's hands with the wounded, they returned paroled 
to Columljus. Ohio, in October and prepared for the 
work of 1863 down the Mississippi River, and the 
siege of Vicksburgh, in all of which he (Dr. Gill) par- 
ticipated. After that campaign and the second attack 
on Jackson, Miss., they spent the fall and winter in 
scouting and doing guard dut3\ He had applied for 
permission to appear before the United States Medi- 
cal Board for examination for Surgeon of Volunteers, 
a higher position than Surgeon of a Regiment, though 
of the same rank (Major of Cavalry). The numl)er of 
such was limited by law of Congress. A ten days' ex- 
amination satisfied the authorities and he received his 
commission from Abraham L ncoln. (It is believed 
the first vacancy.) He was at once sent to the At- 
lanta Campaign, and very early assigned as Surgeon 
in Chief of tlie First Division, 20th Army Corps, 
Gen. Joe Hooker's fighting corps. This position he 
held to the close of the war, finishing the Atlanta 
Campaign, the famous march to the sea, the Carolina 
Campaign, and so on to the great review at Washing- 
ton in 1865. He went with the Western troo^), west 
to Louisville, K}'., and was honorabl}^ mustered out 
in August, 1865. Spent the fall in traveling, the 
winter at the Jefierson Medical College. 

In May, 1866, he sailed for Eul'ope, where he 
spent two years of hard study in hospitals; 16 months 
in Germany, the remainder of the time in Paris, Ge- 
neva and London, and returned to New York in May, 
1868. Re-commenced the practice of his profession in 
St. Louis, in Oct. 1868. There he practiced and was 
Associate P^ditor of the St. Louis Medical and Sur- 
gical Journal until 1^73. when Mt the sojicitatinn of

friends he removed to Jerseyville. HI. Al)()ut isTo 
or 6 the degree of A. M. was conferred on Dr. Gill l)v 
MeKendree CoUeire. Lebanon. 111., and the degree of 
L.L. D. by the University of Wooster, Ohio, in 1885, 
the Medical Department of which was located at 
Cleveland. Ohio, where he was living and lecturing in 
the Medical College, occupying the chair of Clinical 
Surgery. In 18sl he was appomted Physician to 
Southern Illinois Penit<'ntiary, where he did some of 
his best work. In March 18H.5 he received the first 
Brevet (Lt. Colonel) of any medical officer from the 
state of Ohio. From Chester. III. (Southern 111. Peni- 
tentiary), he was urged to take the chair Surgery in 
the Medical Department of the University of Woos- 
ter, at Cleveland, Ohio, which position he filled for 
over two years; then resigned on account of over- 
work and severity of climate. In Oct. 1886 he re- 
moved to El Dorado. Butler Co.. Kansas, having at 
that time just completed his work on "Diphtheria. 
Croup and Tracheotomy." a work which cost him 
much labor. In the spring of 1855, Dr. Gill joined 
the M. E. church, of which he has been a member 
ever since, and has held every official position up to 
President of the ''La}^ Electoral Conference'* of

l)oy, both a])out 7 years old, were on their wa}' to 
school one day, a distance of one mile and a half, 
most of the way through the woods, when they en- 
countered a bear. One of the boys said to the other, 
''I heard some one say if you walk up to a bear and 
look in his eyes he will be ashamed of himself and 
move oil in another direction." This the brave little 
fellows did, and they said the bear hung his head and 
retreated. When they related their stor}' it was not 
])elieved. However, some of the neighbors went to 
the place where the boys had seen the bear, and sure 
enouo'h found the tracks. Children: (VIII.) Burdctta

a small farm at Daiiboro, Pa. It is said pebbles 
change the course of mighty streams, so little inci- 
dents often change the career of man}^ persons, which 
is fully illustrated in the career of the subject of this 
sketch. When a l)oy attending school in a neighl)or- 
ing village, he did the chores and took care of the 
horses for a doctor, who took a fancy to him, and 
gave him a little insight into the profession. When 
he was about to choose for himself, his desire to studv 
medicine was made known to his father, who unfor- 
tunately consulted his elder brother Jacob (Henry's 
uncle), whose prompt reply was, '* It will never do 
for a farmer's son to become a Doctor." So his 
young ambition was unceremoniously "nipped in the 
bud.** (However, farmer Jacob's oldest boy never 
worried him about the propriety of becoming a Doc- 
tor, for he lost no time in graduating an M. D., and 
is now a very successful ])ractitioner at New Britain, 
Pa.) Mr. Kratz was very fond of debating societies, 
which tlourished before and durinsf the war of the Re-

VI. Edwin Aucrustus Kratz^ M. D., born July 12, 
1841:. In early life he assisted his father on the farm, 
and attended school. His patriotic spirit and desire 
to defend the Has:, when it was tired upon, and tram- 
pled under foot by scornful rebels and traitors, was 
as strong as his brothers, and his determination was 
to go to war: but when the family council decided 
that only one of them could go, he yielded: however 
ho])ing that he might yet have an opi)ortunity of 
'•lighting rebels" ])efore the war closed. When the 
h)nged for opportunity came, his choice was the 
Xa\y; l)ul no word from his brother Alonzo for 
thirty days, created considerable alarm in the minds 
of those at home for his safety. It was suggested that 
he would have a better chance to meet him. if he was 
in the army: hence he carried a nnisket. He (Milisted 
in Philadeli)hia Aug. 10. 1861. as a private in Co. A.

liis hrother Alonzo had been c i)ture<| three months 
})reviously, and was in DannNillc. \'a. This deter- 
mined him more than ever, never to he taken alive if 
possible; so when he was wounded and saw the rebels

After his return from the war he began the study

Company F, 128 Regiment Pa., Vol., for nine months 
in the United States services. The reg't., soon went 
to the front. His first letter ^vas dated at Camp 
Wells, Va., Aug. 12, 1862, from which it appears 
that army life agreed with him, he says: ''We don't 
get victuals like at home, but wdiat ^ve do get is 
enough and healthy; soft bread comes this way once 
a week." After the battle of Antietam he wrote, ''It 
was a hard fight, and I do not want to get in another 
like it. The rel)els loaded their guns with a large 
round ball and three buck-shot, these flew around us 
like hail. We loaded our muskets with a large pointed 
ball, and it did some execution. A soldier who has 
once fought for his country, Avill never forget it, 
neither should he l)e forgotten." On Jan. 16, 1863 at 
Fairfax Station, Va., he says. "Our winter hut is 
l)uilt; it is of logs tw^o feet h<gh. and our tent is the 
roof: It is a comfortable house that will kcej) us dry 
and warm." On Mar. 25, 1863 he wrote from Brook's 
Station, Va., "We have five weeks yet to serve; we 
have been in several skirmishes besides the great ])at- 
tle Sept. 17 (Antietam), and there may l)e another big 
fight this spring. l)efore our time is out. Gen. Hooker 
is getting impatient at this inaction. There is some 
talk among the boys of re-enlisting, but I think I will 
go home, although I don't believe I shall be satisfied 
with lionie life as long as the war is going on." The 
anticipated battle \vas Chanecllorsville. through it he 
passed without a scratch, and was discharged at the 
end of his term of service with the following cer- 
tificate. "This is to certify that Alonzo Philip Kratz

He came home in June 1868. and seemed olad 
enough to get back to "God's country again; but the 
outdoor life of a soldier, who so often slept with the 
blue vault of heaven for a covering, had completely 
changed his disposition. It was weeks before he could 
sh'cp on a soft ))e(l. and enjoy a good meal. His ])a- 
triotic spirit tinally })revailed. to take up arms again; 
he always spoke of the Artillery service as l)eing the 
most agreeable, and least dangerous to life and linil): 
that he wouhl go in the heavy Artillery next. With 
this object in view, he went to Philadelphia shortly 
after New Years day, 1864, and enlisted in Battery D, 
11:^ Regt.. Penna. H. A. The regt. was, however, 
su})plied with nmskets, and served as the "2 Penna. 
Provisional A'olunteers," there l)eing more demand 
for that branch than Artillery: and he was promoted 
to Corporal of Compan\' I. The regiment was mus- 
tered as "A^'teran". and immediately went to the 
front leaving l)ehind tifty brave and true men. of 
which numl)er he was one for detached duty in Phila- 
del})liia. After guarding various places in the city 
for three months, he wi's sent to his regiment in the 
tield, Apr. 24. 

A letter dated July 8, 1864. near Petersburg, 
Ya., gives an account of the tierce tighting of the 
rebels at the Welden R. R.. where they charged the 
Union lines six deep without breaking it; also that 
they^had blown up two rebel forts, and are mining an- 
other and a bigger one, and when ready to explode, 
they will tight day and night if necessary to capture 
Petersburg, Ya. His last letter from the field, is 
dated July 17, 1864, in Avliich he says, "have been 
acting as sergeant for two months, and expect to be 
promoted to that office, as soon as the ca])tain recov- 
ers from wounds received in battle," The coveted 
promotion never came. He was captured Jul}^ 29, at 
the explosion referred to (Burnside's mine), and car- 
ried away into captivity. He was confined in the 
famous Libby prison at Richmond. Ya.. for a while.

and then ivnioved to the stockade pen at Danville, 
Va. The '^hist letter'' received from him was written 
in the latter place, dated Auof 3d, 1864; it was 
mailed at Old Point Comfort, and did not reach home 
until October 19, 1864. It was written with a led 
pencil in two hand writings, the first half was in his 
writing, which gave the date and circumstances of 
his capture, and where he was a prisoner. The last 
hulf showed unmistakably, that it was erased and 
Avritten in another hand; this purported to give the 
c()mfortal)le (juarters he had, kind treatment he re- 
ceived at the hands of the rebels, and the (juantity 
and quality of healthy food given him. 

After the close of the war it was learned that he 
was an unwilling guest of rebeldom six months, and 
died Feb. 12, 186.5 of starvation and exposure. He is 
luiried in the National Cemetery at Danville, Va.,

road, where Frederick Steeb now lives, where in 
1T()T he purchased the Williams' Homestead with 188 
acres. The buildings are a well built stone house two 
stories hio^h, and a stone barn. These l)uildinofS were, 
no doubt erected by a Welsh settler of colonial times

ble Rodoer Williams, founder of Rhode Island) who 
in 1747 purchased 307 acres, and lived thereon just 
twenty years, when he sold as above stated to Abra-

near Yost's Mill, on the farm now occupied by Jacob 
Smith. He was an honest, upright man, and held in 
high esteem. As a Christian, he endeavored faith- 
fully to discharge his religious duties, in all of which 



— 110 — 

he was conscientiously strict. He never allowed any 
member of his family to leave the church before the 
benediction was pronounced. An adage of his was: 
"Wer naus geht vor dem Segen, geht dem Fluch ent- 
gegen." Though, at times taking a smoke, it was a 
saying of his, ''that he never wanted to be a slave to 
tobacco or whisky.'' In the time of the subject of 
this sketch, many of the luxuries of the present day 
were not enjoyed. There were no carpets and no 
parlor matches in those days. Sometimes they had 
to go to -leighbors for fire, and on one occasion the 
Fretz mi^dow was set on fire by borrowed fire. 

T^or the married girls in those days the dry goods 
outfit was mostly homemade. The spinning wheel 
was one of the fixtures of the family, and in this fam- 
ily of ten girls there were six spinning wheels going 
at one time, commencing at 5 o'clock in the mornino; 
and continuing until 10 and 11 P. M. One of the 
daughters, Mrs. Susanna Funk, generally spun eigh- 
teen cuts of flax per day, and one day she spun twenty 
cuts. The reel and the shaving bench were in the 
same room. Martin Fretz was one of the first to get 
a Dearborn pleasure wagon. Bows and cover were 
taken along and if wanted in case of rain the}^ were 
put up. Among the relics of this home is a bar of 
SO' p made by his wife in 1816, one of her last acts, 
n^yw in the possession of a granddaughter, Fsther 
Hunsberger, of Dublin, Pa. They were members of 
the Mennonite church at Blooming Glen, where he 
and wife lie buried. Children: Barbara, Mary, Agnes,

— 132 — 

he found it more economical and convenient to have 
his family in that vicinity also, and accordingly, on 
the 20th of July 1885, lie 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 
Inisiness integrity and his excellent qualifications for 
the work in which he was engaged. In the spring of 
1890 he severed his relations with the X. W. Lumber 
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.

social and religious movements of the day, and w^as 
always ready and willing to assist in all enterprises 
of public interest, and held continuously positions of 
responsibility and honor. Soon after his removal to 
Chillicothc, in 1860, he was elected superintendent of 
the Sunday-school of the Presbj^terian church of that 
city, which position he held until his removal to Han- 
nibal 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 l)oard of that city, 
and through his influence was built the beautiful new 
school building, costing from 815,000 to ^550,000. In 
1875 he was also member of the city council. During 
the last three years of his residence in Chillicothc he 
was correspondent of the ''Globe Democrat," a re- 
publican paper of St. Louis. During the summer of 
1890, after severing his connection with the N. W. L. 
Co., he, with A. Fic^ro, was appointed, by the lum- 
ber manufacturers of the N. W., to ins[)ect the sys- 
tem of grading employed by the leading manufactur- 
ers of the north-west, and their report was received 
with much favor and satisfaction. After the comple- 
tion 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

V. Kachel Fretz, born in HilltoAvn Twp., Bucks Co., 
Pa., Jan. 1, 1814; died Dec. 11, 1858. At an early 
a<>e she lost her mother, and the only remembrances 
she had of her fond parent were the recollections of 
early childhood. It is related that on the day of her 
mother's funi'ral she stood l)eside her casket, callini:- 
her mamma to listen to her childlike (questions. She 
received such educational advantages as the })ublic 
schools of that early period ati'orded. She read l)oth 
Cierman and Enolish well, and in later years tlu' read- 
ino- of German i)oetry alforded her esi)ecial i)leasure. 
She was a constant reader of ihe Bi])le, and delighted 
to call the attention of her own family to the beauty 
of its precepts. She was married to Henry S Krout, 
of Bedminster, Nov. 2, 1835. He was born Apr. 10. 
1810; died May 30, 1888. They lived near Line Lex- 
i not on for eifrht years. Then moved to the home- 
stead of the Krout family, on the Deep Run, where 
six more years of their busy lives were spent in tillina" 
the soil that had been cultivated for more than a cen- 
tury by the paternal ancestral line. While residino- 
here they determined to own a home of their own, 
and purchased and occupied the Kramer farm, on the 
east branch of Perkiomen Creek. While living here 
the family ties were broken. The mother having con- 
tracted consumption, was called to precede the rest 
of the family circle and join the great majority in the 
eternal world, beyond the shadowy vale. She was a 
truly pious mother, and her chief care was to bring 
up her children in the nurture and admonition of the 
Lord. Above all she loved her family, her church. 



— 138 — 

her Savior and her God. They were members of the 
Meiiiionite church at Deep Rim. Children: Jacob, 
Martin, Abraham, John. 

VI. Jacob F. Krout, born in Bucks Co., Pa., Oct. 
2l>, 1836. He always lived under the parental roof, 
and after the decease of his father, came into posses- 
sion of the homestead in Bedminster, where he is the 
proprietor of the farm and the Bedminster Nursery 
of Fruit and Ornamental Trees. By industry and fru- 
frality he has acquired much success as a farmer and 
nursei3'man. He is unmarried, and a member of the 
Mennonite church at Deep Run. 

VI. Martin F. Krout, V)orn in Bucks Co . Pa., Nov. 
3, 1838: died Apr. 20, 1876. He lived with his par- 
ents and worked on the farm until he was twenty-one 
years of age. He then took a position in a mercan- 
tile house in Philadelphia, where, daring his four 
years of service, he became thoroughly conversant 
with the business and enjoyed the confidence of all. 
In 1862 he went to River Styx, Oliio, and engaged in 
farming, in which lousiness he continued for a time. 
He then purchased a farm near that town, and set- 
tled u\H)n it. where he remained until his death. He 
married Rebecca, dauofhter of Dr. William Andrews, 
of River Stvx, Ohio; Oct. 2, 1861:. Children: (VII.) 
James H. Krout, born Apr. 30, 1866. (VII.) William 
Arthur Krout, born Apr. 20, 1871. 

VI. Abraham F. K. Krout. born in Bucks Co., Pa., 
Feb. 2, 1813. He lived at home until he was nineteen 
3'ears of age. He then entered the North Wales In- 
stitute to obtain a more tliorough education than the 
pul)lic schools atl'orded. Here he remained about a 
year. In the fall of l.'S62 he commenced teacliing. 
and until 1>>68 taught successiveh' in the Deep Run, 
Rocky Ridge, Algard, Sellersville and Plumstead\ ille 
schools. In 1868 he took charge of the West Bethle- 
hem schcols, Lehigh Co., and in 1869 accepted the 
Principalshi}) of Coplay schools, in the same County. 
Here he remained from Sept. '()9 to June '83, when 

he asked to be relieved to become the accountant and 
cashier for Coplay Iron Co. This position he held 
from Julv '83 to Oct. '88. In the fall of 1889 he took 



— 139 — 

char«fe of the Borouofh schools of Eiiilciitoii, Venango 
Co., Pa., where as Pi'inei[)al he re-organized the 
school system and introduced a num])er of important 
changes for the improvement of the pal)lic schools in 
that municipality. Having been otfered still better 
inducements by the Board of Education of the Le- 
highton Borough Schools, he will in the future have 
the Principalship and supervision of the schools of 
that growing town on the Lehigh. 

Tlirouirh all these years of teaching there is one 
idea that has never been lost sight of, namely, that of 
self-im[)rovement. The schooling at the academy was 
only the l)eginning of a life of study. In 1870 he ap- 
peared before the State Board of l^xaminers, passed 
the examination, and was granted a Normal Certifi- 
cate as Teacher of Didactics. He found much pleas- 
ure in ])ursuing a course of general studies in science 
and language, and in 1877 Franklin and Marshall Col- 
lege recognized his industry as a student and con- 
ferred on him the honorary degree of A. M. He has 
l)een a meml)er of Pa. State Teachers' Association 
since 1877, and an active member of the Touvey Bo- 
tanical Club of Columljia College, New York City, 
since Oct. 1881. 

Having the confidence of the people at his per- 
manent home in Coplay, he was freiiuently called 
upon to till positions of honor and responsiljility. He 
was the tirst commissioned Justice of the Peace for 
this Borough, and has continuously held this ofiice 
from 1861^ to 1890. He was Secretary of Town Coun- 
cil for thirteen years, and a School Director while 
serving the Coplay Iron Co. The Judges the Courts 
frequently appointed him to serve on Road Juries and 
Commissions, and there are few Townships in Lehigh 
County in which he has not been called to execute 
these api)ointments. Being a meml>erof the Ref. Ch, 
he took an active interest in the founding of Trinit}^ 
Congregation, at Coplay, in 1872. He served as dea- 
con and was for many years the Secretary of the Con- 
sistory. He was the Superintendent of the Sabbath- 
schools of this congregation for eighteen years. He 
married Mary C. Moyer, of Skippack. Montgomery

Co., and went to Norristown, where he was installed 
in the position of associate editor of the "Daily and

V. Reuben W. Kratz, born 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 14 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 bet- 
ter things in store for the young than in the densel\' 
inhabited East; went to Whiteside Co., III., and 
worked at wagon-makmg, breaking prairie with an 
ox team, threshing, etc. In the spring of 1860, he 
married Emeline A. Swena, of Sterling, III. 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. (P. O., 
Pomona), Franklin Co., Kansas. 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 ^lissouri IS months. While on 
such duty the famil}' 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 dis- 
tant. The Militia was disbanded in 1864, and from 
that time Mr. Kratz was able to be at home and care 
for his family. Neighl)ors were a long distance apart. 
No settlement except along the streams, and it was 
common 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 




Mrs. Mary C. Aistix.

whisk}'. She iiifoniicd them the whisky, if there was 
any, was at the wakeiip, 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 a])le to ])uy a stock farm of 152 
acres; 37 acres of this was afterwards sold to assist in 
paying for the balance. In ISTS Mr. Kratz purchased 
2-10 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 
l)uilt, but this the family soon outgrew, and in the 
spring of 1886 a house costing over ^3,000 was 
erected. In an early day ^Nlr. 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 feeding, making a specialt}' of fattening beef 
cattle. The business has not alwa3's been prosperous, 
owing to grasshoppers, chinch bugs and dry weather. 
School faciliti(*s have always been good — proba])ly as 
good as man}' in the older states. Mr. Kratz has 
served on the School Board in his district 24 years. 
He and wife are mem))ers of the Congregational Ch.

* 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 io8 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.

children rcniaiii to inouni tlioir loss. Mother Ck'Hicns 
was a bright, intelligent, and well informed woman. 
Above all she was a 2"ood. devoted, noble-hearted 
Christian, and an excellent Bible student. At the aire 
of 23 she o-ive her heart to Jesus, and joined the 
P^vangelical Association and remained faithful to God 
and the church until called from lab )r to nward. A 
liberal supi^orter, an earnest worker in the church. 
she also did much for the itinerant preachers of her 
church, and her home was usually their sto])|)inir 
place. 

She was a liood mother to all. 2ivin<:- good ad- 
vice and counsel to all with whom she came in con- 
tact. One young man i)lucked as a Ijrand from the 
eternal burning, who said he never heeded any min- 
ister of the gospel, was a drunkard, atheist, and a 
very profane man. By the constant admonition of 
mother Clemens, he finally amended his ways. This 
young man was her last classdeader on earth, and 
has since ])ecome a minister of the gospel. In her last 
hours she said. "Christ is still my stay and staff. We 
must all be sanctified, I can die in peace." Mother 
Clemens took great delight in speaking al)out the 
battles and victories in Christ's service, in hearing 
old choruses sung, and the word of God read, and 
prayer, during which, even in the midst of all her 
sutferings she would clap her hands and shout for 
jo\'. Her's was indeed the death of the righteous, 
and precious in the sight of the Lord. To her chil- 
dren, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, how 
sweet, how impressive, and how inviting are her last 
words ^^ Good-hye^ meet me in heaven T

born near Trappe. Monto^, Co., Nov. lo, 182.5. Spent

the limited advantages of the country schools of that

School in the village of Trappe. He died in 1838 and 
was succeeded in the school by Rev. Henry S. Roden- 
bough. This was Mr. Hunsicker's Alma Matei-. In 
18-18, he and his father founded " Freeland Semi- 
nary," an educational institution designed for young 
men and boys. He at once became the principal of 
the school, and three years later the proprietor. He 
continued as Principal of this school until 1865, when 
he leased the school and property to A. N. Fetterolf, 
one of his assistants for five years. During the time 
of his lease to Prof. F. he sold the school property to 
Rev. J. H. A. Bombroger, D. D., of Philadelphia, 
who, in connection with other enterprising persons, 
obtained a charter and founded Ursinus College. In 
185(> Mr. Hunsicker was ordained to the ministr}' of 
the New (()l)erholtz('r) Mennonite church. On ac- 
count of the liberal and progressive ideas in church 
work, a chism took place in 1851, which resulted in 
establishing an independent church, known as Trinity

founders, and for which he continued to preach until

VI. Henrv W. Kratz, born in Perkiomen Twp., 
Montg. Co., Pa., July 31, 1834. At the age of five 
years he removed with his parents to the village of 
Trappe, Montg. Co., where at first he had the benefit 
of common school instruction, but later on received a 
thorough academic training at Washington Hall Col- 
legiate Institute, under Joseph Hunsicker, Esq., and 
Professor Abel Rambo, where he was also prepared 
to enter the Sophomore class in College. Instead of 
taking a regular Collegiate course, however, as at first 



-- 222 — 

contcmplatcHl, he ciiiiaged in teaching and pursued 
that callino: for eiohteen years. Durino- two years of 
that period he was tutor at his Ahiia Mater, under 
Prof. Rambo, teachino- the Enoflish hino^uasfe and 
Mathematics. 

In 1862 he was elected Justice of the Peace by 
the citizens of Upper Providence Twp., and was con- 
tinued in that position for twenty years; during which 
time he devoted much of his attention to surveying, 
convej^ancing, settling estates, and selling real estate; 
all of which resulted in a large and remunerative bus- 
iness. In 1866, through the efforts of Senator Hor- 
ace Royer, he was appointed a transcribing clerk of 
the Senate of Pennsylvania at Harrisburg; and the 
year following was promoted to the double position 
of bill cook and message clerkships, which places he 
served with credit to himself and the satisfaction of 
the Senate. 

In 1880 Mr. Kratz was nominated by acclamation 
for Recorder of Deeds by the Republican County 
Convention, and was elected by nearly five hundred 
majority. In serving that office he not only per- 
formed his duties faithfully and well, but was courte- 
ous and obliging in his official relations with the peo- 
ple. He was also one of the original number who 
organized the National Bank of Schwenksville, served 
as Director until January 1890, when he was elected 
President to succeed tiacob G. Schwenk, decVl. He 
devotes much time and attention to that flourishing 
institution. He is prominentl}' connected with Ur- 
sinus College at College ville, Montg. Co., being 
President of the Board of Directors, and a member of 
the Building Committee, which is superintending the 
erection of that massive and commodious structuie 
known as "'Boml^erger Memorial Hall,'' on the Col- 
lege Campus. He is a member of the State Board of 
Agriculture; and while not a farmer, he has rendered 
valuable service to that body. He has been selected 
essayest upon several important occasions. He de- 
livered two well- prepared essays on the road ([ues- 
tion which were well received and highly- jiraised. 
He is manacrer and auditor of the Perkiomen and

Trapi)e and moved to Norristown, where he now re-

lived. He advanced the profession of teaching, ac- 
quired distinction as surveyor and accountant, and 
(lisphiNX'd executive ability in the mana<»ement and

and other members of the profession who witnessed 
the operation gave her up in utter despair, but the 
operator. Dr. Atlee. of Philadelphia, assured them 
that there was still hope for her. This hope had been 
l)artly realized when, after many days of pain and 
patience, she was again able to attend^ to her house- 
hold duties and to enjo}^ ordinary health. The dread 
disease, however, though subdued for a time, was not 
conquered, and nearh^ nine jears later caused her 
death. She was about 50 years ohl. Her remains 
were interred in the Lower Salford Mennonite bury- 
inof fri'ound.

VALEDICTION. 



Fpjends and Brothers of a Common Ancestry. 

Ere Ave lay aside this volume and consign it to 
some o1)scure corner of the li1)rary, let us commune 
together. 

We have read of him, our worthy ancestor, of 
his immediate descendants, of our fathers, of our co- 
temporaries, of ourselves. They and we are now the 
substance of written history. Our names will be, to 
some extent, preserved from oblivion; and whether 
we approve or otherwise, it matters not. 

To make history is man"'s evident mission; and if 
we make good history, we shall have no cause to wish 
it unknown. It should therefore be our aim to make 
clean history; not only on our own account, but on 
account of our posterit}' as well. 

With what commendable pride may the honest, 
upright man look upon himself as the son of a noble 
sire; and how the paternal heart yearns toward a 
worthy son I 

In view of this, it becomes our duty to endeavor 
to improve society, by each one contributing his moi- 
ety to that end. Are we accepting the task? Are 
we, the parents of the present generation, shoulder- 
ing this l)urden of responsil)ility, and teaching our 
offspring in their turn to bear it too? Are we guard- 
ing our everv word and deed, and inculcating on their 
minds just, moral and religious principles? 

I fear that many of us have not an adequate con- 
ception of the onerous responsibilities involving us, 
as sons of the past and sires of the future. Possi])ly 
in that greed for gain which at the present time influ- 
ences all nations and societies, manv moral <luties 



^- 287 — 

sink into comparative insignificance and are neglected. 
Be that as it nia}-; when the accounts of human life 
are rendered up. our offenses will be found no less 
grave, nor the judgment less severe. He who will 
for a moment seriously pause and ponder, cannot fail 
to see, and, in all honesty, should admit, that as 
many of the young of this generation are being 
reared, thousands, aye, hundreds of thousands, of 
them are apt pupils of vice, and are, day b}^ da}', fit- 
ting themselves as apostles for the dissemination of 
inunorality and crime. 

Who is responsil)le? We, every one of us, in a 
greater or less degree; not alone as parents, but as 
elder brothers, as neighbors, or as strangers; con- 
sciously or unconsciously, we, and all with whom 
they come in contact, are daily and hourly teaching 
them by precept or example. Every untoward action 
of ours is seen and copied l)y some observing youth. 
Every unguarded expression is heard and repeated 
l)y some i)recocious juvenile. Is it an\' wonder, then, 
that morality does not keep pace with science? 

We of the present day and generation are blessed 
with many conveniences that were not enjoyed by our 
fathers, and we should seek to transmit them to our 
posterity. 

We are living in an age when the most valuable 
germs of ancient and modern wisdom, purified and 
concentrated, have advanced civilization far beyond 
even the elysian dreams of the ''Eastern Magi." 

Thus far in the history of the world, the present 
is the "Ne plus ultra'' age of human enlightenment. 

Search the archives of nations and find, if you 
can, a parallel to the progress of our own beloved 
America daring the first century of its existence as a 
distinct power. 

The haughty Nebuchadnezzar, when at the zenith 
of his grandeur, never dreamed that the ''Gi'eat Bal)- 
ylon which 1 have built,'' could bo surpassed: nor Sol- 
omon in all his glor}^ with wisdom and knowledge; 
nor yet all the great and wise men of antiquity ever 
enjoyed or hoped to enjoy such comforts, such lux- 



— 288 — 

nries, such privileges, and such immunities as we of 
to-day. 

Think for a moment of our illimitable resources; 
of our nation's vessels dottino- ever}' sea, its commerce 
carried on in ever}' port, its products distri])uted 
throughout every land. Think of our vast continent 
traversed in all directions by iron bands of trade and 
travel, by innumeral)le threads of communication, by 
its hundred thousand highways and byways, and by 
its hundreds of rivers and lakes, natural channels of 
commerce. Think of its vast agricultural and animal 
products; of its exhaustless mineral deposits, devel- 
oped and undeveloped, and of the countless thou- 
sands of useful mechanical appliances which, by man's 
genius, reduces human labor to a minimum and anni- 
hilates time and distance. Think of all this and as- 
sert if you can that the responsibilities resting on this 
people are not weighty. Who does not believe that 
the responsil)ilities of a people increase with their en- 
lightenment ? 

The source of all our prospcn-ity and power is ev- 
ident. The daystar of Universal Christian Liberty 
has risen above the horizon of hiuiian events, shed- 
ding his refulgent glow o'er the awakening world, 
and humanity is emerging from the Plutonian dark- 
ness of ignorance and intolerance into the broad light 
of Christian love and fellowship. 

Shall we go on and on increasing in knowledge, 
in wealth, in power, in grandeur? Not unless we con- 
tinue in the way the Almighty has marked out for us. 
History furnishes many instances of ancient nations 
who knew not the God of Revelation, fallen to the 
dust from Avhence they sprang; and of others who, 
having known Him, departed from the way and like- 
wise fell. Nineveh, Babylon, Egypt, Greece, Rome, 
all fell. From the very nature of affairs their doom 
was inevitable and they could not escape it. Their 
fabric, erected like the house on shifting sands, fell, 
and the fall thereof was great. Even God's "chosen 
people'' sank from their high estate and calamities 
fell thick and heavy upon them. God's ways arc 
mysterious and past finding out. but His laws are

jjlain and iinnmtable. They must l)e obeyed or cer- 
tain destruction will follow. 

No peo[)le can have true prosperity, true peace, 
or be truly happ}' without true reliirion. Not that re- 
liirion of fanaticism and fear that invests God with 
terrible powers, one to be worshiped and propitiated 
to avoid the visitation of His annihilating wrath; not 
that form of relisfion that compels men to conform to 
the law and will of God throu^rh fear of eternal con- 
denmation. No; but that form of reliirion that ac- 
knowledofes God as the God of Love and Tenderness, 
who made the covenant with mankind whereby they 
may be redeemed through the mediation of His Di- 
vine Son. 

A happy, peaceful and prosperous people should 
])e a vigilant people. Eternal vigilance is not alone 
the price of li])ertv, but of virtue and integrity as 
well. Man's arch-eneni}' is ever watchful, seeking 
whom he may destroy: and when our vigilance re- 
laxes, in that moment we fall. 

Let us each and all determine that, regardless of 
the course pursued l)y others, we, at least, will trans- 
mit to our children a name that carries with it no re- 
proach; and if we would have them free from taints 
of vice, we must keep them from contaminating in- 
tluences. from evil associates, from pernicious litera- 
ture: withal we must teach them self-reliance, and 
cultivate in them the will power to stand alone and 
resist the inevita]:)le temptations of life. 

Let us give each and all of our children a sound, 
practical education. Among our two hundred thou- 
sand public schools, our three hundred and twenty 
colleges and universities, beside thousands of other 
educational institutions, every one may have it who 
will. In this country there can be no longer any plea 
for ignorance among our native born. This epoch is 
becoming more and more one of specialists in all 
branches of human industry. Human knowledge is 
becoming so extended, and the sciences and the arts 
are ramifying out in so man}' directions, that it is im- 
possible far any one individual to learn but a tithe of 
it all. Yet the fundamental principles of all knowl- 

19 



— 290 — 

edge are the same; and tiiey should be acquired by ev- 
ery one. Societ}^ demands it, and science demands it. 
Even now man}^ desirable positions can be obtained 
only through competitive examinations for eligibility. 
In such cases, what hope of success can an unqualified 
person have? Absolutely none. 

This is pre-eminently an age of advancement and 
our real duty is improvement in all that tends to ele- 
vate and benefit our race. If we, as a people, culti- 
vate all arts and sciences, strive for supremacy in 
knowledge, practice the tenets of our fathers, pre- 
serve inviolate the institutions reared by them, grant 
justice and equal rights to all, heed the injunctions of 
Hoh' Writ, and follow righteousness, there is no 
limit to the height we, as a nation, may attain. But 
if we disregard these things and employ our faculties 
to propagate evil, calamities will overwhelm in the 
moment when we think not, and we too will sink to 
rise no more. May the day soon dawn when the em- 
blems of Universal Peace and Universal Liberty shall 
crown the summit of ever}^ hill in every clime! when 
every knee shall bend, and every head shall bow, ac- 
knowledging that God is God, and that he rules su- 
preme in love and equity. 

A. B. Fretz, 
Jan. 15th, 1892. Caldwell, New Jersey.
