PREFACE 






ROMPTED by a long-cherished desire to prepare a com- 
plete Genealogical and Historical Record of the Hun- 
sicker Family, that might prove to be valuable and 
interesting to our descendants, we applied ourselves 
to the task, having obtained, during the lifetime of 
our revered father and of older relatives, data not 
now procurable. 

It was our purpose originally to include in our book the entire family 
of the progenitor Valentine Hunsicker, who by his first marriage had two 
children, Elizabeth and Samuel, and by his second marriage seven children, 
Valentine, Jacob, Isaac, Sara, Catherine, Abraham, and Henry; but, con- 
fronted by the magnitude of the labor involved in the collection of all the 
names, dates of births, of marriages, and of deaths of the many descendants 
of this numerous family, we concluded (at our time of life) to confine our- 
selves to the compilation of the names belonging to the Fifth Branch only 
of our grandfather Henry Hunsicker (second generation), youngest son of 
the progenitor Valentine Hunsicker (first generation). 

Apparent indifference on the part of some relatives to respond to 
inquiries directed to them for information has prevented as complete a list 
of all the names belonging to our branch as we desired. Where names and 
dates do not appear, it is from no fault of ours. 

In the preparation of our book the aim has been not merely to furnish 
names and a brief history of our progenitor and sketches of some of the 
more prominent of his descendants, but rather to stir up a spirit of becoming 
pride in his posterity to emulate the worth and character of honored 
ancestors. 

Our family came early to the shores of America, driven hither by relig- 
ious persecution, and induced by the wise counsel of William Penn to come 
to Pennsylvania and enjoy religious liberty in company with many others from 
Holland, Germany, and Switzerland, who first settled in Germantown. 

Subsequently they scattered over Bucks and Montgomery Counties, 
where at present many of their descendants reside. Originally tillers of 
the soil, most of them, by thrift and industry, soon acquired a competency 



PREFACE 

and owned some of the finest farms of the country. Later on, others 
embarked in other pursuits — quite a number engaged in the professions of 
law and the ministry. Not a few are among our successful merchants and 
manufacturers. 

Our ancestors sprung from the best blood of Europe; some held high 
posts of honor in civil life in the Dutch dominion in the time of Prince 
William of Orange. 

We submit our work especially to relatives and friends, hoping it may 
prove an interesting record, valuable in enabling them to trace their family 
relations; we thank those who responded promptly to our many inquiries 
for information. The work has been tedious and required years of research 
to bring together the many names contained. 

The compiler is especially indebted to his brother, Horace M. Hunsicker, 
of Philadelphia, for most valuable assistance in the corresix)ndence involved 
in the collection of names and dates and assisting in the final arrangement 
of the book.

INTRODUCTION 




N LEAVING to our children a record of the names and 
short biographical sketches of their ancestors, it is proper 
that we embody in our family book a brief history of the 
cause that brought our fathers to the shores of America. 
Also to remind them o^ some of the hardships and 
privations they endured in the wilderness on the wooded 
shores of the Delaware, exposed to the rigors of climate, 
to wild beasts and roving bands of Indians, and where they depended mainly 
on axe and spade to extract a living among stumps, roots, and stones after 
felling trees to erect log huts for habitation. 

It was during the latter part of the seventeenth century when violent 
religious persecutions arose in Europe and drove our fathers from their 
homes, after William Penn had travelled through Holland, Germany, and 
Switzerland, and offered them homes in America, where they might enjoy 
liberty of conscience in matters of religion, when hundreds left home and 
friends behind them, braved the stormy deep, and landed on these inhos- 
pitable shores, with scarcely any resources except their courage, their strong 
arms, and their firm reliance on the guidance of a righteous Providence to 
direct their steps. 

Under a charter granted to William Penn during the reign of Charles II, 
King of England, dated January 27, 1682, right and title were granted 
to these possessions, for the consideration and payment, to the heirs and 
successors of King Charles II, of two beaver skins to be delivered at Windsor 
Castle on the ist of January of every year, and also the fifth part of all 
gold and silver ore which should from time to time happen to be found 
within the limits aforesaid. 

The first impulse to the wave of immigration was received at Crefeld, 
a town on the Rhine, close to the Netherland country. Crefeld had an 
humble population of weavers and craftsmen, among them Quakers and 
Mennonites who had endured many persecutions. Penn visited and com- 
forted these lonely people in 1677, during his visits to the Continent, and 
they never forgot his ministrations. When the news of his scheme for 
settling the newly acquired province reached them, they at once prepared 

■[3 



INTRODUCTION 



to send some of their number to recruit his forces. On lo March, 1682, 
Penn conveyed to Jacob Telner and Jan Streepers, merchants, and Dirk 
Sipman, deeds for 5000 acres of land to each, to be laid out in Pennsylvania. 
Daniel Francis Pastorius, a remarkable man of good family, of official 
standing and well educated, and identified with the Frankford Company in 
purchasing 25,000 acres of land in Pennsylvania, is entitled to the credit of 
being the founder of Germantown, or, as he preferred to call it, Germanapolis. 

Jacob Isaac Van Bebber and three others each purchased 1000 acres 
of land on II June, 1683, and arranged to settle a colony at Germantown, — 
the condition of their purchase from Penn being, indeed, that they should 
settle a certain number of families on their land within a specified time. 
The arrangement was carried out, a company went to Rotterdam, and, after 
some delays, sailed from London in the ship " Concord " on 24 July, 1683, 
in company with Penn's friends, James Claypoole, his family, and the settlers 
he was taking out. The greater part of the purchasers as well as the 
settlers were Mennonites, " religious, good people," as Richard Townshend, 
the Quaker preacher, who came over in the " Welcome," denominates them. 
The pioneers had a pleasant voyage. " The blessing of the Lord did attend 
us," says Claypoole. The adventurers reached their destination late in 
October, and, after securing their respective lots, began at once to dig 
Cellars and erect their huts for winter, naturally having to endure hardships 
and privation. 

Thus was formed the nucleus of the first German settlement in America. 
In 1685 Pieter Schumacher of Cresheim, founder of a leading family, came 
over and settled in Germantown. The Kassels came in 1686, in which year 
also a Quaker meeting-house was built, used both by the Friends and the 
Mennonites. William Rittinghausen, who came over in 1687, was a Men- 
nonite preacher. His family had long followed paper-making, and in 1690 
he erected on the Wissahickon the paper-mill which supplied paper to 
William Bradford, the earliest printer in the middle colonies. Dirk Keyser 
came over and settled in Germantown in 1688, a descendant of that Leonard 
Keyser said to be one of the Waldenses who was burned to death as a 
Mennonite at Scharding in 1527. 

It was with these first settlers that our Dutch ancestors (the Van 
Sinterns) and our German ancestors (the Kolbs) came over, and later inter- 
married with Valentine Hunsicker. the progenitor of the Hunsicker Family.

THE NAME " HUNSICKER 



n 




[HE origin of names and their meaning are always inter- 
esting. It has been asked, what is the origin and meaning 
of our family name " Hunsicker " ? 

It is variously written — namely, Hunsicker, Hun- 
secker, Hunsiker, Hunziger, Huntzinger, Hunsucker. 

The most plausible theory arrived at of its origin 
has been solved by Prof. G. K. Fischer, a son of Dr. 
Fischer, late of Philadelphia, who is at present with his family residing in 
Switzerland, and has been at some pains to find the key to the solution. 
Prof. Fischer writes: *' I am so close to the part of the world from which 
the old stock (Hunsicker) originated, it has been of considerable interest 
to me to investigate the subject. The results are as follows : 

" In the centre of Schwartzwald (the German Black Forest) about 
70 miles north of Zurich, the native town of Valentine Hunsicker, is a 
district of forest valleys and mountain streams, which seems to have been 
the stopping-place or headquarters of the Huns, probably during the time 
of Attila's invasion, who was a Hun of royal lineage. The sword of their 
God promised them the dominion of the world. 

" This great barbarian tribe has left its name on the landmarks of all 
this district. These are Hunsruck, Hunsruecken (Ridge), Hunsbach (Creek), 
etc. Among them, in the corner of the valley, we have finally Hunseck or 
Huns Valley. The name Ecke, or corner, is common to all valley locations 
in that part of Schwartzwald. I suppose it means that part of the valley 
that widens out, or the end of the valley which forms a sort of cozy corner 
for the settlement; and so we have a vast number of Eckes, — Longeck (Long 
Valley), Rotheck (Red Valley), and so Hunseck (Huns Valley). 

" The large part of the family names in this part of the world are 
derived from the locality with which the early stock was identified. 

" So we may easily infer that the original Hunsicker came from Hun- 
seck."

FIRST GENERATION 




VALENTINE HUNSICKER 

UR Ancestor Valentine Hunsicker was born in the Canton 

Zurich, Switzerland, , 1700. 

He was an orphan, and came with his maternal 

grandfather, Valentine Klemmer, to America in 171 7. 

Died 30 March, 1771. 

After a short stay at Germantown, Pa., among the 

Palatinate settlers, the family in company with some 
others pushed into the interior of the dense forests of Eastern Pennsylvania, 
going as far north as northern Bucks County, into a district known as " der 
gross Schwamm " (big swamp), later called Lower Milford, which name it 
still retains. 

In common with other primitive settlers, their house was built of 
roughly hewn logs, plastered with clay, and their living depended on what 
they could extract from hasty clearings and from the game then abounding 
in these wilds. It is needless to add that they were poor, compelled to 
depend mainly on axe and spade for a living. Young Valentine was at 
once thrown upon his own resources as a laborer, and was hired out to chop 
wood, and at intervals assist his grandfather at weaving, to help pay the 
cost of his passage across the ocean. 

About 1720 or 1 72 1 he went, with his uncle Henry Klemmer, who was 
a stone-mason, to Van Bebber (now called Skippack) and assisted him as 
a laborer. He helped his uncle to build the first Mennonite meeting-house 
there in 1724 (the second built in America; that at Germantown was built 
first, in 1708). He remained in Skippack, and by industry and economy 
saved enough to purchase 125 acres of wild land, for which he paid five 
shillings per acre, to which he subsequently added 100 acres more. The 
same or part of the same was lately occupied by Henry B. Hunsicker of 
the sixth generation. 

Philadelphia County Records show, by census taken in 1756 by Walter 
Johnson by order of the Provincial Government, that Valentine Hunsicker 
had five children, and was assessed for 225 acres of land, 100 acres being 
clear, 

a 17 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



He married in 1728; the name of his first wife is unknown. By his 
first marriage he had two children, the eldest, a daughter, Elizabeth; she 
married a man named Ruth, of which family we have lost trace; and a 
son named Samuel, who never married. In 1732 Valentine's wife died. 

He afterward, in 1735, married Elizabeth Kolb, daughter of Jacob 
Kolb (see under " Dutch Ancestry"), I have her ancestry traced back six 
generations to Holland, through the Von Sintern, Vander Mers, and the 
De Vossens, very distinguished families of Amsterdam. Two members, at 
different times, were Burgomeisters of their native cities. 

Valentine Hunsicker became a deacon in the Mennonite Church and 
was active in building up the congregation in Skippack, though his ancestors 
in Switzerland were Reformed. By persevering toil and industry, he had 
cleared fully one-half of his land in his lifetime. Had a family of seven 
children: five sons, Jacob, Isaac, and Henry (our grandfather), and two 
daughters, Sara and Catherine (two children, Valentine and Abraham, died 
in infancy). He died 3 March, 1771, and lies interred in the old Mennonite 
burying-ground in Skippack, but no stone marks his resting place. He 
directed, by will, that his son Henry, though still a minor at his father's 
death, should come in possession of the farm, which he did. He in turn 
left it to his son (our uncle Garret). Garret left it to his son Christian, 
Christian to his son Garret. Garret's son Henry lately occupied the same. 
It belonged to the family almost 170 years.

of Valentine^ and Elizabeth Kolb; born 7 March, 1752; died 8 July, 1836; 
married, 6 December, 1772, Esther Detweiler. 

It was our original intention to include all the descendants of the other 
sisters and brothers of Henry, the youngest, for which omission we express 
the greatest regret, but were unable to enlist the assistance of the other 
branches. 

REV. HENRY HUNSICKER 

Henry Hunsicker^, youngest child of Valentine Hunsicker, was born 
in the old homestead, in Skippack Township, 7 March, 1752. Like his 
older brothers, Jacob and Isaac, he was brought up a farmer. With tastes 
and aptitudes early evinced, combined with determined will and rare force 
of character, he acquired a fair education, so that he spoke and wrote well, 
both in German and English. Added to these natural gifts, he inherited 
strong constitutional vigor from both parents, blending the fire of Swiss 
patriotism and spirit of freedom on his father's side with the sturdy Dutch 
blood and indomitable will power of the Van Sinterns and De Vossens on 
his grandmother's side. 

At the age of thirty, he was ordained a Mennonite minister, and was 
soon after made the ruling Bishop of the district. He was an eminently 
practical man, possessing knowledge beyond that of most men among the 
Pennsylvania Germans of his time. Gifted by nature with a warm heart and 
a ready hand to assist, he became popular, influential, and useful both in 
the church and in the community. He was much sought and consulted, both 
in worldly and spiritual matters, being endowed with excellent common 
sense and good judgment. He was much employed in settling estates and 
appointed guardian of orphans. He was social, generous, and candid, not 
austere or rigorous, not inclined to the prevailing prejudices of the de- 
nomination to which he belonged, whose undue partiality for ancient forms 
and customs almost approached veneration. He claimed that he always 
gained in every argument; if his own was the weaker, he endorsed that 
of his opponent. He was quick-witted and abounded in repartee. 

During his ministerial age travel was on horseback. He was con- 
temporary with Bishop Matthias Pennypacker of Chester County, the great- 

21 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



grandfather of Ex-Governor Pennypacker of Schwenksville, Pa. The two 
rode horseback side by side many times in their ministerial visits to churches, 
and on numerous occasions met in general conference at the mother Men- 
nonite Church in Germantown. 

It was the custom among the Mennonites then, and still is to some 
extent, not to pay their ministers for their services. A rich parishioner of 
his one day remarked, " I don't see how you can afford to give your time 
and services gratuitously." He curtly replied, " Why, then, don't you pay 
me?" 

The writer (then in his eleventh year) has a distinct personal recollection 
of Grandfather Hunsicker, who gave him a present (having been named for 
him), two Spanish silver dollars, some six or seven years before his death. 
He was fond of children and disposed to playfully tease them. He always 
kept a cup of mint drops in a little wall-closet near where he sat, which was 
invariably brought out when children cariie around. In offering the mint 
drop, he first demanded a kiss. 

The writer remembers well the place in which he sat in the long old- 
fashioned pulpit in the old meeting-house in Skippack, that stood near the 
wall in the northwest side of the present cemetery or graveyard. 

He was married to Esther Detweiler, 6 December, 1772. She was 
born 13 March, 1751; died 18 August, 1829. She was the daughter of 
John Detweiler and came from an old, respectable, and substantial family 
in Skippack Township. 

Henry and Esther Hunsicker had ten children (nine of them married 
and had families), six sons and four daughters, born in the following order: 
John, Elizabeth, Anna, Catherine, Henry, Jacob, Garret, Abraham (died 
less than a month old), Sarah, Abraham 2d. 

Henry Hunsicker served faithfully in the ministry about fifty-four 
years and died 8 June, 1836, in the eighty-fifth year of his age. The writer 
remembers well the day of his death, being then nearly eleven years old. 
He lies interred side by side with the partner of his joys and sorrows in the 
cemetery belonging to the old Mennonite Church in Skippack, which he 
served so long. Tombstones mark the place. 



WILL OF HENRY HUNSICKER. 

Be it remembered, that I Henry Hunsicker of Perkiomen and Skippack Township in 
the County of Montgomery and State of Pennsylvania being considerably advanced in years 
of age and taking into consideration the uncertainty of this transitory life, and the situation 
of my family, and being by Divine Providence of sound and disposing mind and memory, 
do this twenty seventh day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred 
and thirty, make and establish this to be my last will and testament in manner following — 

22 



SECOND GENERATION 



I order and direct my hereinafter named Executors to pay all my just debts and funeral 
expenses. Item, I give and devise until my son Garret Hunsicker and to his heirs and 
assigns all that my plantation whereon I and my said son Garrett now dwells situate in 
Perkiomen and Skippack Township aforesaid, as devised to me by the last will and testa- 
ment of my father Valentine Hunsicker deceased, containing by computation, one hundred 
and fifteen acres of land be it the same more or less, which plantation I value to my said 
son Garret at the sum of five thousand four hundred Dollars lawfuU money to be paid in 
the joint aggregate stock of my estate within one year after my decease. Item twenty acres 
of woodland situate in Perkiomen and Skippack Township aforesaid, and all the remainder 
and residue of my estate, real personal and mixed, I order and direct my executors herein- 
after named to convert into money by public or private sale, in such allotments as they shall 
deem most advantageous to all my children. Hereby authorising and empowering my said 
Executors or the survivors or survivor to make and lawfully execute all necessary deeds 
or conveyances for confirming any lands so sold to the respective purchasers in fee simple. 
Item I give and bequeath all the remainder and residue of my estate unto my following 
named nine children in equal shares alike named my sons, John, Henry, Jacob, Garret and 
Abraham, and daughters, Elizabeth, Anna, Catherine and Sarah and in case of the death 
of either of my said children to legal representatives of such deceased child or children, 
which distribution of my estate shall be made and the dividends paid within one year after 
my decease wherein shall be included whatever either of my said children shall be indebted 
to me at my decease either by Bonds notes or Book accounts, so as to make the shares of all 
my children equal alike. As my son-in-law Anthony Vanderslice who was intermarried with 
my daughter Sarah (who is since dead) stands deeply indebted to me, and to avoid any 
trouble that my hereinafter named executors might have with him respecting the same, it 
is my will that the remainder shall be divided to his children who were born of the body 
of my said daughter Sarah, after his debt is paid which he is indebted to me. Item I nomi- 
nate, constitute and appoint my three sons, John Hunsicker, Garret Hunsicker and Abraham 
Hunsicker executors of this my last will and testament giving and granting to them or the 
survivors or survivor, full power and authority to carry the same into full effect, and 
execute the same according to the true intent and meaning hereof revoking all former wills 
and testaments by me heretofore made ratifying and confirming this as my last will and 
testament. 

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal the day and year first 
above written.

THIRD GENERATION 




OHN HUNSICKER3 (Henry^, Valentine^), eldest son 
of Henry^ and Esther Detweiler, born 2y August, 1773, 
in Skippack Township, Montgomery County, Pa. ; died 
17 November, 1847; married (i), 9 May, 1797, Eliza- 
beth Detweiler, daughter of John Detweiler, born 11 
January, 1779; died 28 February, 1842; (2), Catherine 
High, widow of Henry High. She was born 15 August, 
1789; died 30 December, 1865. 

He lived on the farm now owned and occupied by his grandson John 
S. Hunsicker, Esq., in Perkiomen Township. He was an ordained Men- 
nonite minister for nearly forty years, and succeeded his father, who had 
been in the ministry fifty-four years, as preacher and Bishop. 

The means of obtaining an education were poor when he was young, 
but natural talent and a strong mind enabled him to acquire knowledge far 
beyond many of his time. 

He was not of an aggressive spirit, but rather of a mild nature and 
kindly disposition; yet he broke away from some of the rigid and exacting 
customs peculiar to the sect to which he belonged. He was progressive and 
availed himself of means for information. 

He was a contributing member of the Trappe Literary Society which 
flourished about 1840, and read many of the books of its library. 

His mental characteristics are plainly traceable through his children, 
giving evidence in the production of professional talent, as well as character, 
in his grandchildren, three of whom are distinguished lawyers, three are 
ministers of the Gospel (though of different denominations), and one occu- 
pied for some years the distinguished position of President of Girard College 
in Philadelphia.

THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



They were the parents of seven children, four sons and three daughters. 
All married and had families, except one son, who died young. 

Jacob Hunsicker was a successful farmer, and resided for many years 
on the farm now owned by Joseph Robison near Perkiomen Bridge, where 
all his children were born. He possessed noble qualities of character, was 
eminently social, kind-hearted, and helpful as a man and neighbor in many 
ways. 

The quality of character is traceable in some of his descendants, notably 
in Mrs. Sarah H. Longstreth, a granddaughter, graduate of Pennsylvania 
Female College, prominent in the reform movements of the day; in that 
of her son Mayne R. Longstreth, a rising lawyer at the Philadelphia Bar; 
and in a grandson, F. B. Wonsetler of Norristown, Pa., of the firm of 
Coleman & Wonsetler, successfully engaged in the insurance business in 
Philadelphia. We could add more names to our list of distinguished off- 
spring of this father in Israel.

REV. ABRAHAM HUNSICKER 

Abraham Hunsicker^, son of Bishop Henry Hunsicker^, head of the 
Fifth Branch, and grandson of Valentine Hunsicker^, the progenitor of 

29 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



the Hunsicker Family, and father of the compiler of the Hunsicker Family 
Book, was born 31 July, 1793, in East Perkiomen Township, Montgomery 
County, Pa. He married Elizabeth (Shoemaker) Alderfer, of Lower 
Salford, Pa., 30 May, 1816. Had ten children, Ann, Benjamin, Esther, 
Henry A., Abraham, Elizabeth, Elias A., Mary, Catherine, and Horace M. 
These all had families. 

Brought up a farmer, he purchased a farm in 1816 in the present 
borough of Collegeville, where he continued to reside, engaged in the calling 
of his life until 1850, and where all his children were born. 

During his boyhood the schools, mostly German, were open only during 
winter months and very ordinary, so that opportunity for learning was 
very limited. Thrown upon the resources of his native energy and battling 
with the disadvantages incident to such a condition, even by dint of per- 
severance he acquired only a very ordinary education, scarcely sufficient 
to " read, write, and cipher." But brought in contact with the larger world 
around him, possessing a strong natural endowment, with rare energy of 
character he applied himself to master the first principles of education and 
raised himself to a level to meet the problems of life. 

Realizing in himself the need of knowledge, his mind was early directed 
to making provision for better educational facilities for those who should 
come after him. Being a member of the Mennonite Church and holding 
such views, he encountered the opposition of his brethren, who held tena- 
ciously to the venerated customs and forms of the church, and regarded 
higher education an innovation tending to the disorganization of what they 
held sacred. 

It was at the general Mennonite Conference held in Franconia, Pa., 
May, 1846, that the strife and foment culminated in a schism or rupture of 
the church, virtually excommunicating any and all who dared opposition to 
the long-established usages and customs of the Mennonite Church. 

On I January, 1847, according to the custom of the Mennonites, an 
election to choose a minister by lot was held in the Mennonite meeting-house 
in Skippack, Pa., when he was elected. So important an office to one so 
poorly qualified awakened a sense of responsibility that no one can realize 
who has not been placed in a like position. 

In prayer to God he sought guidance, and with new devotion to duty 
invoked spiritual illumination to aid him in his sacred calling. It was now 
that he felt more than ever before the need of a provision for more and 
better knowledge, and resolved before God to found a school that should 
afford to others means of obtaining that of which he was deprived and made 
to feel the sad disadvantages.

REV. ABRAHAM HUNSICKER AND WIFE ELIZABETH ALDERFER 

(Xo. i6) 



THIRD GENERATION 



When about to start the cherished project of his life, to found a school, 
his brother, Rev. John Hunsicker, died in November, 1847, who was at that 
time presiding Bishop of the Skippack, Providence, and Methatchen churches 
(the same over which his father. Rev. Henry Hunsicker, had presided as 
Bishop for fifty-four years). After the death of his brother John, the office 
of Bishop devolved on him. Again he was deeply impressed with the solemn 
and arduous duties of his high office and invoked the enlightening and 
strengthening influence of Divine Grace for guidance and support. With 
prayerful determination, he accordingly, in 1848, founded and built Freeland 
Seminary, and placed his son, Henry A., as principal, over it. The school 
flourished beyond expectation, though it received but small patronage from 
the Mennonites whom it hoped to benefit. Its non-sectarian spirit commended 
it to the popular support of an appreciative people. 

Impelled by the same liberal Christian principle of non-sectarianism, 
he built the Christian Trinity Church in 1853, intending it to be an Inde- 
pendent Church, open to evangelical ministers of good standing and people 
of all and every Christian denomination of whatever name. His former 
unpleasant denominational connection of rigid austerity imposed by formal 
authority by unreasonable prejudice made him a non-conformist to de- 
nominationalism of every kind. Liberal-minded, charitable, and warm-hearted 
toward every child of God, he welcomed them to his church without respect 
of person. In full belief that God's blessing would crown his enterprise, 
begun to His honor and carried on in His fear, to uplift his fellow-man, 
he persevered in his efTorts, and lived to enjoy the signal vindication of his 
cherished project. 

The success attendant on the founding of Freeland Seminary in 1848, 
a school designed especially for young men and boys, encouraged the founding 
and establishment of Pennsylvania Female College, opened in 185 1 under 
Prof. J. Warrenne Sunderland. 

The influence of these institutions of learning, owing their existence 
to the enterprise and labors of Rev. Abraham Hunsicker, have been most 
marked in raising a high educational standard in the surrounding country. 

Elizabeth Alderfer, his wife, died 15 February, 1898, in her hundredth 
year. Had ten children, fifty-eight grandchildren, sixty-five great-grand- 
children, and twelve great-great-grandchildren. 

Her father, Benjamin Alderfer, born 18 October, 1771, married Eliza- 
beth Shoemaker. He died 18 June, 1840. 

Her grandfather John Alderfer, born 8 February, 1745, married Eliza- 
beth Rosenberger. He died 19 December, 1820.

four sons and two daughters. Arrived at Philadelphia in the ship " Samuel," 
II August, 1732. Was christened a Lutheran, but joined the Mennonites

FOURTH GENERATION 




OSEPH HUNSICKER^ (John^ Henry^, Valentine^), 
eldest child of John^ and Elizabeth Detweiler, born 29 
May, 1798; died i December, 1870; married, 28 
December, 18 19, Elizabeth Moyer, born 21 November, 
1802; died 10 December, 1888. 

He was born in Perkiomen Township, Montgomery 
County, Pa. 

He had meagre opportunity for obtaining an education, in those early 
years of the nineteenth century, by reason of poor schools and short school 
sessions. Notwithstanding these disadvantages, an inherent thirst for knowl- 
edge and diligent perseverance in study enabled him to acquire an education 
above the average in his time. 

He commenced life as a farmer. Afterward, with his uncle Anthony 
Vanderslice, he embarked in the lumber, grain, and coal business, at Black 
Rock on the Schuylkill River, several miles northeast of Phoenixville, in 
which occupation he continued many years. 

He became more or less interested in civil and political affairs and 
was an enthusiastic admirer of Henry Clay. During the administration of 
Joseph Ritner, Governor of Pennsylvania, he was appointed Associate Judge, 
sitting at the courts of Norristown, where he presided a number of years. 

As a man of ripe judgment, honored and respected, and of varied ex- 
perience, he was looked up to and much consulted by his fellow-men. 

He passed his years of threescore and ten, and was gathered home 
peacefully with his fathers before him.

THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



September, 1806; died 22 April, 1894, He was born in Albany Township, 
Berks County, Pa. Came to Montgomery County in early manhood, resided 
on a farm in Perkiomen Township, near Gratersford, until 1856, when he 
sold the farm and removed to Freeland (now Collegeville) for the purpose 
of giving his sons an education at Freeland Seminary. He then engaged 
in the produce business, driving to Philadelphia weekly. Early in the '6o's 
he engaged in the grain and coal business at Royersford, Pa., for some years. 
Later he purchased a grist-mill near Collegeville, retiring some ten years 
before his death. He was president of the Perkiomen and Sumneytown 
Turnpike Company for many years, and an Elder in Trinity Christian 
Church, Collegeville, from its organization, until a few years before his death. 
He was modest and retiring in his disposition, a thorough Christian, and

GARRET DETWEILER HUNSICKER 

Garret Detweiler Hunsicker, the youngest son of Rev. John Hunsicker 
(No. 7), was born 3 February, 1814, on a farm, still occupied by one 
of the descendants, on the west bank of the Perkiomen Creek, south of 
Iron Bridge, Perkiomen Township, Montgomery County, Pa. His mother 
was a daughter of Johannes Detweiler and Catherine Funk, the latter being 
a direct descendant of Bishop Henry Funk. The former was a son of Joseph 
Detweiler, the son of Hans Detweiler. This family was noted for their 
height, size, and strength. He was married, 19 February, 1839, to Elizabeth 
Wigton Morgan, a woman of more than ordinary alertness of mind and of 
fine executive ability; an extensive reader, and a ready conversationalist,

FOURTH GENERATION 



being interested in affairs of church, of state, and of reform; a devout 
Christian, with a most comprehensive knowledge of the Scriptures, her 
almost exclusive reading in early years; active in Christian service, having 
been from its organization, in 1837, a teacher in the Sunday-school of her 
church for more than forty years; even previous to this, having taught in 
the school of St. James' Episcopal Church, Evansburg. In both life and 
character she well filled out the picture of the model woman in the thirty- 
first chapter of Proverbs. Of this union four children lived to maturity: 
J. Quincy (No. 121); Mary M., married, 16 February, 1871, to John R. 
Thomas, died 31 July, 1876; Ella M., at present a teacher in the Benedict 
College, Columbia, S. C. ; and Robert M. (No. 124). 

In partnership with Isaac Detweiler he was, from 1836 to April, 1843, 
engaged in store-keeping at Providence Square. Upon relinquishing this, he 
moved to Mingo Mill, on Mingo Creek near where it enters the Schuylkill 
River, about one mile east of Royersford in Upper Providence. On i May, 
1848, he moved to his father-in-law's farm, on Germantown Turnpike, in 
Lower Providence, between Perkiomen Bridge and the old village of Evans- 
burg. In 1855 he purchased a fami north of Evansburg, on the road leading 
north from St. James' Episcopal Church; situate partly in Lower Providence 
and partly in Perkiomen Township, to which he moved 2"] February of 
that year. He sold this farm in 1871 to John R. Thomas, his son-in-law, 
and J. Quincy Hunsicker, his son. He continued, however, to reside there 
until 1877, when he moved into the house at the east end of Evansburg, 
long occupied by Dr. John R. Grigg. Here he spent the remainder of his life. 

He received such education as the schools of the locality afforded. 
Possessed of a keen mind, he had more than ordinary intelligence; and 
through extensive reading and 'observation, with the benefit of good home 
associations, he became a man well informed on all topics of general interest, 
and entertained advanced ideas upon the questions of the day. He early 
became interested in public matters. He took great interest in temperance 
reform, actively cooperating in the Washingtonian agitation of 1840 and 
subsequent years. 

He had a great fondness for music, and, having a good and well- 
cultivated voice, attained quite an excellency in vocal music. It was one 
of his achievements, with friends of musical taste, to sing by note any piece 
of music at sight. When the Providence Mennonite Church substituted 
English for German in its services, he took charge of the singing. He also 
gave free instruction in vocal music to the young folks of the locality, who 
formed classes for that purpose, meeting weekly in the school-houses in the 
surrounding neighborhood. 

37 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



On 6 March, 1859, he became a member of the Lower Providence 
Baptist Church, his wife having been a member previous to marriage. For 
many years before becoming a member he was leader of the choir, and 
afterwards, until 1875, when he was succeeded by his son, Robert M. He 
filled, at different times, the post of clerk and trustee, and for many years 
he was Sunday-school superintendent. 

In politics he was originally an Old Line Whig, antislavery in senti- 
ment, and was an original Republican. He always took an active interest 
in party affairs, and filled a prominent place in its councils and activities. 
In i860 he was the nominee of the party for clerk of the courts. He ran 
considerably ahead of the party vote, but not enough to overcome the strong 
Democratic majority of the county at that time. In 1867 he was a party 
candidate for County Treasurer, with like result. During Lincoln's Ad- 
ministration he served acceptably as one of the first Board of Revenue 
Assessors for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. He resigned from this 
office when President Johnson broke with his party. In 1870 he served as 
census enumerator for the Townships of Perkiomen and Worcester. During 
the Rebellion he was an enthusiastic and consistent supporter of the Lincoln 
Administration and its various policies. He took an active and important 
part in raising funds for bounties paid to men who enlisted to fill the quota 
required of his township under the calls of the President for additional 
recruits. In those days banking facilities were not such as now. On one 
occasion he was one of a committee of three, representing Perkiomen Town- 
ship, who collected a very large sum of money required to pay the bounties 
to those enlisting. The money was carried in currency to Harrisburg in 
a valise, at a time when the city was greatly congested by the presence of 
many others on like errands, and those desiring to enlist, bounty jumpers, and 
5ther adventurers. They secured the requisite number, disbursed the money 
necessary to pay the bounties, and returned without any untoward event. 

He was public-spirited and occupied a prominent place in business circles. 
For many years he was secretary of the Montgomery County Mutual Fire 
Insurance Company. With the treasurer of the Company he traversed all 
parts of the county and part of Philadelphia County, at stated periods, 
collecting assessments, meeting the members at points according to previous 
announcement. This gave him a very extensive acquaintance, reaching to 
every part of the district. Speaking with equal ease both in English and 
German gave him peculiar adaptation for the duties of this office. He was 
one of the organizers and incorporators of the Perkiomen Valley Fire 
Insurance Company, a very successful organization, of which he was for a 
number of years director and secretary. He was also active in organizing 

38 



FOURTH GENERATION 



and subsequently managing and conducting to a successful conclusion the 
Upper and Lower Providence Building and Loan Association. He was also 
one of the organizers of, and took an active part in projecting and building, 
the Perkiomen Railroad, and served for some years as a director. 

He was in addition to his other activities a progressive farmer for 
many years, employing machinery and other improved devices and methods. 
Early in the '50's he and D. Morgan Casselberry, a neighboring farmer 
with advanced ideas, bought a McCormick mower and reaper, the first in 
that part of the State. It required four horses and two men to operate the 
reaper and was a great curiosity at the time. When first put in operation, 
people came from all directions to see it. Laborers objected, and some refused 
to work on the farms, because they regarded the use of such appliances as 
detrimental to their interests. It was not long, however, until laborers pre- 
ferred working where such improvements were in use. He kept abreast of 
the times by taking and reading agricultural papers and other publications 
of that kind. The result was that his farm was brought to a high state of 
cultivation and produced great and therefore unusual crops. 

Mr. Hunsicker was widely known and enjoyed the confidence and 
respect of all who knew him. He was a large man, of fine presence, six 
feet two inches in height, of rare natural ability, general bearing, and with 
quite a vein of humor. He was a good conversationalist, and, being well 
informed on subjects of general as well as of local interest, was an interest- 
ing character. 

He always had the courage of his convictions, and was ever ready to 
maintain them, but in such a way as not to give offence to those who differed 
with him. He consequently had many friends amongst Democrats as well 
as Republicans, although the times were such that animosities often prevailed 
between those of opposite parties. 

His death, due to an attack of apoplexy a year previous, occurred 19 
February, 1879, the fortieth anniversary of his marriage. His remains are 
interred in the cemetery of the Lower Providence Baptist Church by the side 
of those of the wife of his youth, whose death occurred 20 October, 1883.

7^. HENRY A. HUNSICKER* (Abraham^, Henry^, Valentine^), 
second son and fourth child of Abraham^ and Elizabeth Alderfer, born 10 
November, 1825, in what is now Collegeville, Montgomery County, Pa.; 
married, (i) 23 August, 1849, Mary S. Weinberger, born 31 January, 1830; 
died 7 May, 1874; (2) 11 May, 1876, Anna C. Gotwals, born 23 September, 

1853. 

His father was a farmer, and as a farmer's boy the subject of this 

sketch was brought up. He was instructed in the duties of farm life in the 
period when the sickle, the scythe, and the grain cradle were the reaping 
implements ; when the flail and horse-treading were the processes of threshing 
out the grain; when flax was raised and in all its processes of manufacture 
mainly supplied what cotton does now ; when sheep were raised on the farm 
and furnished the wool which was spun, woven, and made into the family 
clothing; when wood was the fuel and coal scarcely thought of; when 
tallow candles and oil lamps furnished the light; when the tinder-box, with 
its burned rags, flint, and steel, was depended on to start the morning fire. 
These and other slow, primitive drawbacks, compared with modern improved 
mechanical appliances and labor-saving machinery, were trials to contend 
with, but they were not without benefit in strengthening and developing 
the body and adding tone and vigor to mind and character as well. The 
great inventions and their adaptation to the needs of humanity, the real 
glories of the nineteenth century, far surpass all the discoveries of the 
eighteen previous centuries. These have been brought about during his life- 
time. 

Poor schools and incompetent teachers (then called school-masters) and 
winter sessions of three months afforded very limited opportunity for learn- 
ing. There was no system or classification or uniform set of text-books. 
To a boy fond of books and study, it may be well imagined, there was a 
gloomy outlook. The father, noting the tendency of the boy's fondness for 

58 



FOURTH GENERATION 



study, sent him, at the age of ten years, to Henry Prizer's boarding school 
at Trappe. Mr. Prizer died in 1838, and was succeeded by Rev. Henry S. 
Rodenbaugh, He continued under Mr. Rodenbaugh's instruction until 1845. 
Later he became a pupil of Rev. Samuel Aaron at Norristown, Pa. 

By diligence and close application he made fair progress. In the fall 
of 1843 he was induced to take charge of a country subscription school in 
Lower Sal ford, Montgomery County. He was required to teach German 
along with the usual English branches. 

Thus for five years alternately going to school and teaching, he was 
induced by his father, in the fall of 1848, to take charge of Freeland Sem- 
inary, a boarding school for young men and boys which his father founded 
the same year. 

Assisted by a corps of able instructors, all the common branches, to- 
gether with the higher mathematics, the sciences, and ancient and modern 
languages, were taught. The school grew in numbers and reputation, and 
had among its pupils Wayne MacVeagh (afterwards Attorney-General under 
President Garfield), his brother Franklin MacVeagh (the present Secretary 
of the Treasury under President Taft), John R. Brooke, Major-General of 
the Army of the United States, and many other men of note. 

Under the blessing of Providence the school proved to be eminently 
prosperous, so that at the close of his administration in 1865 nearly 3600 
young men and boys had been students under him. 

After seventeen years of devoted labor as principal of Freeland Sem- 
inary, he leased the school to Prof. A. H. Fetterolf (now Dr. Fetterolf, 
ex-President of Girard College), who also had been a pupil of Freeland 
Seminary, and became professor of mathematics, and vice-principal of the 
school. 

In 1869 he sold Freeland Seminary to a corporation headed by Dr. 
Bomberger of Philadelphia, who obtained a charter and opened Ursinus 
College. 

Through the ownership by his father and his sons of a tract of fourteen 
thousand acres of timber lands purchased in 1850 in Potter and Cameron 
Counties, he embarked in the lumber business in the autumn of 1865, re- 
maining engaged in the same more or less up to the present time. 

He was called to the ministry in 1850 by the liberal wing of the 
Mennonite Church to assist in his father's bishopric. This he did in con- 
junction with his duties as principal of the school. But by reason of dis- 
sensions arising among the members of the churches from different views 
held in regard to matters of discipline and church government, he left the 
Mennonite Church when his father did, and joined him in the enterprise

of founding the Trinity Christian Church at Collegeville, intended to be an 
independent, non-denominational church. 

He is at present a member and a ruling elder in the Presbyterian Church 
of the Redeemer, at Germantown, Philadelphia. 

A TRIBUTE BY HON. WAYNE MACVEAGH 

It was a snowy day in February, 1849, ^vhen my father drove me 
in a sleigh to Freeland Seminary. It was my first absence from home, and 
we reached the school during the noon cessation of study and when the 
students were on the campus engaged in snowballing each other. 

It was my first meeting with Henry A. Hunsicker, the principal of 
the seminary, and I still distinctly recall the cordial welcome he gave us, 
and, although dinner was over, very soon he and Mrs. Hunsicker led us to 
the dining-room and gave us abundant and welcome refreshment after our 
cold journey, and I never lost the pleasant impression his countenance made 
upon me at our first meeting. 

Those were still days when American boys expected both at home 
and at school plain living; but I am sure, in lieu of the necessary limitations 
surrounding the beginning of such an enterprise, it was the happiest possible 
fortune that it should have been entrusted to the fostering care of Mr. 
Hunsicker. He had the rare faculty of knowing everything going on in 
every department without ever seeming to pry into matters ; and he and 
his good wife kept us all not only very comfortable, but also very well 
satisfied in all respects. No doubt we grumbled occasionally, as boys are 
apt to do, but I cannot recall a single instance of dissatisfaction with our 
treatment. 

Mr. Hunsicker had also shown great good judgment as well as great 
liberality of view in securing, as head of the instruction to be given at the 
seminary, such an exceptional scholar and instructor as Professor Sunder- 
land. Indeed, Mr. Hunsicker and Professor Sunderland in their respective 
departments were an ideal combination for the work of building up such an 
institution amidst not particularly encouraging surroundings, and my own 
case showed their competency for their task. 

I was prepared by them to enter the Junior Class at Yale in two years 
and two months, covering in that comparatively brief period the studies 
required to enter the Freshman Class as well as those required to enter the 
two higher classes. 

It was, however, the genial and friendly atmosphere of the seminary 
which made study both attractive and agreeable, and this atmosphere was

due in far the largest part to the thoughtful, kindly, and wise supervision 
of the principal — for every student felt sure he had a friend in Henry A. 
Hunsicker, 

A TRIBUTE BY DR. ADAM H. FETTEROLF 

One of his former pupils, himself a well-known educator, who has known 
him for many years, volunteers to speak of him as follows: 

Mr, Hunsicker is a man unusually gifted, having a fine mind, rare tact, 
great good sense, an even temper and true kindness of heart. As an 
instructor he was patient, apt to teach, capable of making himself clearly 
understood, and able to inspire the young men with an ambition to make 
the best of their opportunities. Those of us who came under his instruction 
and guidance looked up to him as an exemplar : wherever he led we were 
willing to follow, and whatever he advised we felt safe in doing or trying 
to do. 

As a disciplinarian he was singularly successful; when offences occurred 
and had to be investigated, he proved himself a shrewd detective who could 
not be easily deceived. When he had occasion to reprove or punish, he would 
do it discreetly, without harshness and rarely in anger. 

Mr. Hunsicker was also a pleasing and interesting speaker. His talks 
at the evening chapel service were always full of sound sense and wise 
counsel. He was eminently practical, and never wasted time in idle words. 
His influence over his pupils was great and lasting. 

Mr. Hunsicker was always the .good citizen. He took a commendable 
interest in public affairs. He voted on election days; and when he felt 
that his presence and influence were needed at public meetings, he attended 
and frequently presided. During the War of the Rebellion he showed his 
loyalty and patriotism on many occasions. As a neighbor he was kind and 
always obliging. Those in need of assistance would not apply to him in 
vain, and he that would borrow of him would rarely be turned away. 

A TRIBUTE BY JACOB V. GOTWALTS, ESQ. 

What a student of Freeland Seminary of the early fifties, now over 
seventy years of age, has to say in regard to Rev. Henry A. Hunsicker, the 
founder and principal of said institution : 

From boyhood I have known Mr. Hunsicker, and can therefore testify 

to his standing, character, and worth. I was a pupil of his for several 

years; hence take pleasure in giving this little testimonial to his learning, 

ability, and success as a teacher, as well as to his genial nature and kind 

disposition of heart as a man.

THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



Through his management " Freeland Seminary" (now " Ursinus Col- 
lege ") became one of the best and most prominent in the State. 

He devoted his whole time and energies to the education and training 
of young men, for which he was especially qualified, and was very success- 
ful, as hundreds (and I may say thousands) of young and old students of 
said institution can testify. They can be found scattered all over the world, 
engaged in every avocation in life and occupying positions of honor and 
trust. I think I voice the sentiment of all when I say, we all honor, respect, 
and love our old devoted preceptor. 

Mr. Hunsicker, by disposition, nature, and temperament, was especially 
adapted to manage boys. His great success was because he made himself 
one of them. He seemed to understand human nature well, and possessed 
the happy faculty of working himself into the good graces of the boys. He 
ruled by kindness, not by threats or force. He appealed to the reason and 
common sense of the boys and thus won their confidence and respect. Never- 
theless he was a strict disciplinarian, and had full and absolute control of 
his pupils. He studied and seemed to understand their character and dis- 
position, and by his genial disposition entered into their sports and enjoy- 
ments without in any way losing his standing or dignity among them. Never 
angered or even ruffled in temper, he would correct the mischievous and 
obstreperous by appeal to their honor and conscience. We all honored him ; 
we all obeyed him ; we all loved him and do so still. 

He was a good preceptor, a teacher in the true sense of the word, a 
thorough master of the subject he taught, and had the faculty of imparting 
his knowledge so as to be understood by the most obtuse pupil. 

He had a big heart, was, and is still, a pure, true Christian gentleman. 
He is now (1911) over eighty-five years old, and is still active, in good 
health, and possessed of all his mental faculties as of yore. 

Such a man deserves to live to a good, old age. I am sure the old boys 
wish him a continued long life of health and happiness.

Married Rachel Rittenhouse, of the same township. As Abraham of old was 
a type of the " faithful," it is not inappropriate to claim the same character- 
istic quality for the subject of this sketch, whose generous, self-sacrificing 
spirit was the ruling element of his nature. Always helpful in every emer- 
gency of need in the wide circle of his acquaintances, he never excused himself 
from duty where service to friend or neighbor was required. At his death his 
loss was deplored in the community, in which he was greatly beloved for his 
untiring and unselfish devotion to kindly acts of duty and benevolence. Reared 
a farmer, he spent the largest part of his life in that occupation, but always 
found time for assistance to the needy around him.

THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



Rev. Francis R. S. Hunsicker^, son of Henry D.^ and Catherine (Shoe- 
maker) Hunsicker, was born 27 March, 1832, in Perkiomen Township, Mont- 
gomery County, Pa. He worked on his father's farm until he was sixteen 
years old, when he taught public school for two seasons; after which he was 
appointed assistant teacher in common English in Freeland Seminary, — now 
Ursinus College, — then under the principalship of Rev. Henry A. Hunsicker. 
Here he spent about seven years, a close student and an enthusiastic teacher. 
He held the position of professor of mathematics and history and vice-princi- 
pal for several years, when he was called to Carversville, Pa., to organize the 
Excelsior Normal Institute. He was engaged in educational work from 
1859 to 1862 and from 1867 until 1884. He received the honorary degree 
of A.M. from Lafayette College in 1869 and D.D. from Ursinus in 1883. 

Dr. Hunsicker was ordained to the Gospel ministry in the Trinity Chris- 
tian (now Trinity Reformed) Church at Collegeville, Pa., in 1857; was pastor

Carversville and Plumsteadville Presbyterian Churches 1 870-1 884, pastor at 
Junction, N. J., 1884-87, and Lafayette, N. J., 1887-94, after which he retired 
from the active work of the ministry. He now resides at Carversville, Pa. 

On 18 September, 1853, he married Elizabeth, daughter of Rev. Abra-

occupation of farming. Attended common school until the establishment 
of Freeland Seminary, in 1848, which was founded by his father and was 
under the principalship of his brother Henry A. In the autumn of 1852 
he took charge of a public school in Lower Sal ford Township, Montgomery 
County, Pa. In 1854 he become assistant teacher in Freeland Seminary. 
In the winter of 1855 he married Susan F. Moyer of Franconia Township. 
In the following spring he entered into partnership with Frank M. Hobson, 
keeping a general store in Collegeville. After severing his connection he 
came to Philadelphia in 1858, forming a partnership with his father-in-law, 
Jonas D. Moyer, in the retail flour and feed business, which continued two 
years. He then became partner with John Koplin and his brother Abraham 
Hunsicker, Jr., in the wholesale grain and flour business on Broad below 
Vine Street, Philadelphia, under the firm name Koplin, Hunsicker & Co., 
which continued for two years. After dissolution he continued alone, and 
subsequently bought a large warehouse on South Broad Street opposite 
Baltimore Depot, where he continued to do business until 1868. Since then 
he has been a life insurance agent continuously for forty-two years. 

He is of commanding appearance, holding optimistic views of life. He 
early identified himself with church interests, and is still in charge of a large 
Bible-class in the Harper Memorial Presbyterian Church, Twenty-ninth Street 
and Susquehanna Avenue, Philadelphia, of which church he is a member and 
one of its ruling elders. Residence, 1842 Master Street, Philadelphia.

Jared T. Preston, son of and Mary (Wismer) Preston, was born 

15 March, 1836, in Whitpain Township, Montgomery County, Pa. 

In his youth he had only the advantages of a district school education. 
He learned the trade of saddlery and harness making. 

Having the desire to acquire knowledge, he applied himself to study; 
and, although past twenty years of age when he entered Freeland Seminary 
as a student, he took up a regular course, and soon qualified himself for 
teaching. He continued his studies during spring and fall terms, and taught 
school in the winter for several years. He made rapid progress in study,

and in the spring of 1858 was appointed teacher of the common branches in 
Freeland Seminary. He remained connected with the board of teachers 
in the seminary, being constantly promoted, until 1865. Afterward he opened 
a private school, which he successfully conducted for several years. In the 
meantime he pursued a theological course of study, including Latin, Greek, 
and Hebrew, having in view preparation for the Gospel ministry. At the 
same time he filled the pulpit of one of the churches at Phoenixville, besides 
preaching at many of the outposts in the neighborhood of his home. 

He was reared a Methodist, and was a local preacher of that denomina- 
tion for some years ; but later joined the Presbyterian Church, passed a satis- 
factory examination, and was ordained a minister in full standing. On 
23 June, 1877, the eve of assuming charge of a congregation, he was taken 
sick, and died in the prime of life, thus cutting short a career of promised 
usefulness in the ministry. On 17 May, i860, he married Mary A., daughter 
of Rev. Abraham Hunsicker, from which union there were three children, 
Cyrus (died in infancy), Frank, of Philadelphia, and Elizabeth (wife of 
Henry W. Spare), Brooklyn, N. Y.

He was reared on his father's farm. In the spring of 1851 he entered 
Freeland Seminary (now Ursinus College) under the principalship of Rev. 
Henry A. Hunsicker. In the fall of 1852 he took charge of a public school 
in Mil ford Square, Bucks County, Pa. He attended Freeland Seminary 
during the summer months, and for four consecutive winters taught in 
the public schools. In February, 1856, he was appointed to the position of 
assistant teacher in Freeland Seminary, and two years after he was pro- 
moted to teach the higher mathematics and was appointed vice-principal of 
the institution.

FOURTH GENERATION 



While engaged in these duties he was chosen and elected to the ministry by 
the members of the Trinity Christian Church, and installed in April, 1862. The 
duties of the Gospel ministry demanded so much of his time that he was com- 
pelled to resign his position as teacher and vice-principal of Freeland Seminary, 

The Trinity Christian Church (originally an independent organization) 
in 1888 was merged into the Reformed Church. The other appointments 
of the charge are Trinity Church, Skippackville, and Ironbridge Chapel, 
Rahn's Station. 

Mr. Hendricks enjoyed the distinction of having served the same charge 
longer than any other living pastor in Montgomery County. He officiated 
at more than one thousand funerals. He was greatly beloved by his own 
congregation and in much demand outside of his own church. He was a 
fluent and forcible preacher, speaking entirely extempore, in a rapid, earnest, 
and convincing manner. 

In June, 1881, Ursinus College conferred on him the degree of M.A. 
and in June, 1897, the degree of D.D. 

On 21 October, 1858, he married Catherine, youngest daughter of Rev. 
Abraham Hunsicker^, having five children. He died 21 November, 1905, 
and is buried in the cemetery of Collegeville connected with the church which 
he served so long and faithfully.

pared to enter college, but was dissuaded by his father. Taught school as 
substitute at sixteen years of age, and the following year a full term in Lower 
Sal ford Township, Pa. Assistant teacher in Freeland Seminary for one 
year, and came to Philadelphia in 1861, when eighteen years of age, where 
he has since resided. Graduated at Crittenden Commercial College (at that 
time the leading business college in the country) and became book-keeper in 
1 86 1, continuing as such until 1868, when he became a partner with his 
brother Henry A. in the lumber business, until 1875. He has been almost 
constantly engaged in the wholesale lumber business since that time. On 
30 June, 1863, he enlisted for the emergency in the Thirty-fourth Regiment 
Pennsylvania Militia, Company C, Captain H. H. Fetterolf, and served 
until his discharge on 10 August, 1863. 

On 10 January, 1865, he married Ann Eliza Cosgrove, daughter of 
William Cosgrove, mayor of the city of Warsaw, Indiana, and for a long 
time the leading merchant of that city. Three children were born, two dying 
young. One son, William C, survives (No. 433). His wife died in 1897, and he 
has since resided with his son's family at Seventeenth and Race Sts., Phila. 

Possessing an innate inclination for study and figures, he was early 
at the head of his classes, and in his early manhood ranked as an expert in 
book-keeping because of his correct and methodical system. The same 
carefulness and methods are now showing good results in an established 
business, in which he takes great delight in his latter days, striving to do 
no more than he can control himself and having the confidence of his 
customers, both buyers and shippers. Having no liking for public affairs, 
he never sought or held any political office whatever. Modest and retiring 
in disposition, he is consequently but little known outside of his home circle 
and his business friends, of whom he has hosts. For ten years past he has 
had his offices in the Fidelity Building, Broad Street above Arch, Philadelphia. 

He is a member of the Franklin Institute and the Philadelphia Chamber 
of Commerce.*

When fifteen years old he entered the Sophomore Class of Union College,

He then entered the law office of Colonel James Boyd, of Norristown. Two 
years later, in August, 1857, when only twenty-one years old, he was admitted 
to the Montgomery County Bar. He soon came into prominence, being 
especially successful in jury trials. His integrity, zeal, industry, and ability 
as an advocate were quickly recognized and secured for him a large general 
practice. In 1861 he entered the military service as adjutant of Colonel 
John F. Hartranft's famous regiment, the " Fourth Pennsylvania Volun- 
teers " (infantry), and served for the term of three months, as enlisted.

FIFTH GENERATION 



district attorney for Montgomery County, and served with marked ability 
for three years. He was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 
1872-1873 and took an active part in the deliberations of that body. While 
a member of the Constitutional Convention, he introduced a section provid- 
ing for a review of county criminal trials by the Supreme Court of the 
State. This was defeated by two votes, but its importance was so obvious 
that it was afterwards made a law by the Legislature. In 1884 he was a 
delegate to the National Democratic Convention at Chicago which nominated 
Grover Cleveland, and on other occasions was honored with the confidence of 
his party associates. In 1886 he was the Democratic candidate for Presi- 
dent Judge of Montgomery County, but was defeated with the entire ticket. 
He was a trustee of the State Hospital for the Insane, having been orig- 
inally appointed by Governor Pattison. In addition to his large practice he 
was vice-president of the Montgomery Insurance, Trust, and Safe Deposit 
Company, of Norristown, and he took an active interest in the development of 
many laudable industrial enterprises in the community. 

His widow, Margaret Schall Hunsicker, is descended from a prominent 
Huguenot family that was driven from France by the troubles resulting from 
the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Her mother was Caroline Trexler, a de- 
scendant of Captain John Lesher, a member of the first Constitutional Conven- 
tion held in Carpenters' Hall, Philadelphia, in 1776, and who afterward served 
in the war of the Revolution. Mrs. Hunsicker is regent of the Valley Forge

ADAM H. FETTEROLF. 

Adam H. Fetterolf, Ph.D., LL.D., late president of Girard College, son 
of Gideon and Elizabeth (Hunsicker) Fetterolf, was born 24 November, 
1 84 1, in Perkiomen Township, Montgomery County, Pa. His academic 
training was acquired at Freeland Seminary, then under the management 
of Rev. Henry A. Hunsicker. After completing his course and teaching for 
a time in the public schools, he connected himself with the institution as 
professor of mathematics, and subsequently purchased Mr. Hunsicker's inter- 
est and became proprietor and principal. He conducted the institution very 
successfully for five years, when the building and grounds were purchased 
for Ursinus College. 

Professor Fetterolf then associated himself with Rev. Dr. Wells in 
the ownership and management of Andalusia Academy in Bucks County. 

After the death of Dr. Wells in 1871, he assumed the entire charge, 
and continued at the head of the academy for the next five years. In 1880 
he was elected by the Board of City Trusts to fill the chair of vice-president 
of Girard College. At the death of President Allen, two years later, Pro- 
fessor Fetterolf was chosen to succeed him. He held the position and dis- 
charged the manifold duties for twenty-seven years, with the confidence 
of the board and the approbation of the public.

FIFTH GENERATION 



The government of Girard College demands high and rather peculiar 
qualifications. The position of the president is one of great responsibility, 
standing as he does in loco parentis to over fifteen hundred orphan boys, 
the representative head of the greatest individual charity on the continent. 

Professor Fetterolf possessed the charm of a genial, quick, and vi^ell- 
balanced character, a pleasing address, an impressive presence, and that 
subtle faculty which wins the confidence of boys. He was the fourth presi- 
dent of the college. His abilities have had numerous recognitions from the 
faculties of other colleges. Lafayette conferred the degrees of A.M. and 
Ph.D. and Delaware College the title of LL.D.

J. QUINCY HUNSICKER. 

John Quincy Hunsicker, Esq., is one of the most prominent members 
of the Philadelphia Bar. This position he has attained by the studious 
employment of his abilities and by consecutive labor, which is a talent in 
itself. He resides on Wynnefield Avenue, at Wynnefield, a beautiful and 
elevated suburb, and with his son, J. Quincy Hunsicker, Jr., Esq., has his 
offices in the Crozer Building, 1420 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, Pa. He 
is a tall, fine-looking man of good figure, and, while dignified, has a genial 
and attractive manner. 

Mr. Hunsicker was born in Upper Providence Township, Montgomery 
County, Pa., in the year 1844, and in 1848 the family moved to the Morgan 
farm in Lower Providence Township, near the old village of Evansburg. I 
knew him and his family and a number of his relatives intimately during 
my boyhood and earlier life, and still know a number of his relatives. 

Some one has facetiously written of an admired friend, that he never 
showed better sense than when he selected his ancestors; but it has been 
more seriously said that we are the result of their virtues and vices : certain it 
is that the raw material of our minds and souls is determined by heredity from 
our parents and ancestors; then the glorious work of education supervenes. 

Mr. Hunsicker's forebears were a steady, industrious people, intelligent 

79 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



and filled with hard common sense, possessed with firm conviction — not 
easily disturbed — on all important questions, and patriots to the core. Men 
and women of character, — character, which, as Emerson truly says, is higher 
than intellect. This I know personally of those I knew, particularly his 
father and mother. I cannot resist saying here, that his mother and her 
sister, Mrs. Rebecca Casselberry, were two of the best women I ever knew. 

He is the son of Garret (Detweiler) Hunsicker and Elizabeth Wigton 
Morgan, and a direct descendant of Valentine Hunsicker on his father's side, 
and on his mother's side of Daniel Morgan and Jane Wigton. Daniel Mor- 
gan, his grandfather, was the son of Andrew Morgan, who was the son of 
Andrew Morgan, a native of Wales, who settled in Hatfield Township, Mont- 
gomery County, upon his arrival in this country. 

Jane Wigton, his grandmother, was the daughter of Samuel Wigton and 
Elizabeth Hughes. Samuel Wigton was born 1739, and was a first lieutenant 
in Fourth Battalion, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Militia, during the Revo- 
lution. He served on the staff of General Washington; was present, it is 
said, at the battles of Brandywine, Germantown, and Monmouth, and was 
at Valley Forge Encampment. His commission is dated 6 May, 1777. He 
was the son of John Wigton (of Scotch-Irish origin), of New Britain 
Township, Bucks County. Captain James Wigton, a brother of Lieutenant 
Wigton, was killed at the Battle of Wyoming, 3 July, 1778, and his family 
perished in the subsequent massacre. 

Elizabeth Hughes (Wigton) was the daughter of Christopher and Jean 
Hughes, of Bedminster Township. The former was the son of James 
Hughes, of the said township, of English origin. Christopher Hughes was 
a private soldier in Third Battalion, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Militia, 
having enlisted 10 August, 1775. This makes the subject of our sketch 
a direct descendant of two Revolutionary characters. 

Mr. Hunsicker attended the common schools of the county and Roden- 
baugh's select school, Lower Providence, one term, prior to entering the 
army. He enlisted on 4 August, 1862, as a volunteer, for the term of nine 
months, in a company composed mainly of young men of Lower Providence 
Township and adjoining districts, organized by Dr. William Wetherill, and 
known as "Wetherill Blues." On 11 August, 1862, he was mustered into 
the United States service as a private, in Company " I," Captain Fred. B. 
Shunk, One Hundred and Twenty-ninth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer 
Infantry, Colonel Jacob G. Frick, commanding. The regiment rendezvoused 
at Harrisburg until 16 August, 1862, when it left for Washington and en- 
camped near Alexandria, and was later assigned to Tyler's Brigade, Hum-

phrey's Division, Fifth Corps, Army of the Potomac. The regiment was engaged 
at Centreville, Va. (Second Bull Run) ; was on the subsequent march through 
Maryland, by Frederick City, South Mountain, and Sharpsburg, arriving 
at Antietam, after a forced march from Frederick City, on the early morning 
following the first day's battle. Although under fire during the fight, was 
not called into active conflict; joined in the pursuit of the enemy, took part 
in the conflict which occurred at the crossing at Shepherdstown, where he 
became one of a volunteer squad of sharpshooters posted on the banks of the 
Potomac during the effort made to cross after the enemy, in which the One 
Hundred and Eighteenth Pennsylvania (Com Exchange) Regiment was badly 
cut up. Before the army started on the march leading up to Fredericksburg, 
he was taken ill with typhoid fever, and did not join the regiment again until 
after the Battle of Fredericksburg, in which the regiment participated. He 
served with the regiment after his return continuously; was in Burnside's 
" Mud March " and Chancellorsville Campaign ; was wounded in battle at 
Chancellorsville 3 May, 1863, where the Fifth Corps took the place of the 
Eleventh Corps which had broken and fallen back ; was discharged at Harris- 
burg 18 May, 1863; re-enlisted at Norristown, 2 July, 1863, in the service of 
the State, to serve during the existing emergency. Captain Fred. R. Hawes, 
Company " B," Independent Cavalry Battalion, Pennsylvania Volunteer 
Militia, Lieutenant-Colonel Richard F. Mason, commanding; was located 
in Cumberland Valley on the banks of the Potomac, and when the army 
moved south was attached to Twentieth Cavalry, John E. Wyncoop, com- 
manding. He was finally discharged 21 August, 1863; then re-enlisted for 
the war in the Eighth Pennsylvania Cavalry, but was rejected on account of 
impaired health due to exposure and hardships in the service. After that he 
taught school at Evansburg and at Penn Square, Montgomery County, in the 
winter time, and attended Freeland Seminary (now Ursinus College) during 
the summer months, having educated himself after his return from the war. 

He began the study of the law in March, 1867, i^ the City of Phila- 
delphia, in the ofifice of Theodore Cuyler, then general counsel for the Penn- 
sylvania Railroad Company, and one of the great lawyers of this country; 
attended law lectures at the University of Pennsylvania, and was admitted 
to the bar 21 March, 1869. 

Mr. Hunsicker was married 26 June, 1873, to Mary Elton Stiles (a 
young woman of singular beauty and a devoted wife and mother), who 
died 21 December, 1879, and has two children, Florence H., who married 
Benjamin Peckham, now residing at Providence, R. I., and J. Quincy, Jr., 
a member of the bar of the State of Pennsylvania and a graduate of Haver- 
ford College and the Law Department of the University of Pennsylvania.

THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



On 22 August, 1888, he married his present wife, Marie Emma Heller- 
man, a dignified and handsome woman. 

As I have said, I knew Mr. Hunsicker when we were boys and youths; 
I also was his fellow pupil at the Evansburg school and Freeland Seminary; 
and when I read law I was at first registered with him, though subsequently 
a student of the late Attorney-General Brewster, whose office adjoined that 
of Mr. Cuyler; upon my admission, Mr, Hunsicker and I took offices together 
and continued so for twenty-one years. 

He built up his practice by continued consecutive study and hard work. 
To his capacity for study he brought a keen perception and a correct judg- 
ment; thus, whatever he did he did well ; there was the stamp of thoroughness 
upon it. Such men must succeed. He always knew his case both as to the 
facts and the law. We tried numbers of cases together, but I always felt 
myself very much the junior. He had the admirable faculty of maintaining 
that perfect poise between the court and the client; fidelity to the one, and 
faithfulness to the other; and it was not long before opposing counsel learned 
that he was a very dangerous opponent. 

Besides being a ready nisi prius lawyer, his grasp of facts, sound judg- 
ment, and knowledge of the law made him noted as a counselor in those 
many serious matters of business which every successful lawyer transacts in 
his own office; thus he gradually gathered around him as clients men and 
corporations of large business interests, and has been and is being associated 
in important cases with other lawyers of the very first rank. He now enjoys 
a large and remunerative practice of the highest class, which he handles as 
only a man of ability, judgment, and character can ; and I hope the son may 
take the father for his prototype. 

I cannot close this short sketch without paying a tribute to Mr. Hunsicker 
as a man and a friend. I have known many men, but never had a truer 
friend; sincere, unaffected, faithful; respectful of the opinions, careful of the 
feelings of others; sturdily but not dogmatically defending his own views; 
charitable and long-suffering as to others' failings; slow to anger, quick to 
forgive; such a man must have (as he has) a large circle of social friends. 
He belongs to a number of associations, including Post 2, G.A.R., the Union 
League, Law Association of Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Bar 
Association. Henry K. Boyer. 

(Mr. Boyer was, during several sessions of the Legislature of Pennsyl- 
vania, Speaker of the House, was afterwards State Treasurer for one term, 
and Superintendent of the United States Mint of Philadelphia during the 
administration of President McKinley. — Editor.)

ROBERT MELVILLE HUNSICKER. 

The subject of this sketch, the son of Garret D. and Elizabeth W. Hun- 
sicker, was born at Evansburg, Lower Providence Township, Montgomery Co., 
Pa., on a farm belonging to his grandfather Morgan, now owned by D. Hearn 
Casselberry. About a year later the family moved to Perkiomen Township. 

He was educated in the public schools, Freeland Seminary, the academic 
department of Ursinus College ; then, after serving as a teacher in the public 
schools, in the preparatory department of Bucknell University (1876 to 
1878), the college (1878 to 1882), from which he was graduated with first 
honors; and Crozer Theological Seminary (1882 to 1885). 

After his graduation from the seminary, he accepted a call to the pas- 
torate of four Baptist churches in Central Pennsylvania, and was ordained 
to the ministry at Moreland, Lycoming County, 30 July, 1885. In this 
first pastorate, sixty-seven persons were added to the churches he served. 

On 30 November, 1885, he married Laura M. Bower, of Lewisburg, Pa. 
No children live to bless the household. Mrs. Hunsicker, because of her sym-

THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



pathetic nature and genial personality, wisdom, and lofty interest in the Mas- 
ter's work, has always been a genuine helpmate to her husband in his labors. 

In December, 1887, work was taken up with the church at East Smith- 
field, Bradford County, where in three years and a half he baptized a large 
number, led in the building of a fine and commodious parsonage, and made 
provision for the removal of a long-standing debt. This was followed by a 
successful pastorate of three and a half years at Brookville, Jefferson County, 
where his labors were again crowned with large accessions to the church. 

On I January, 1895, he began a ten years and three months' pastorate 
at Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia. Concerning the work here a friend says: 
" By his exceptional ability in elevating the church's conception of financial 
responsibility, he succeeded in placing his church in the very first rank, in 
the great Philadelphia Baptist Association, for liberality and business stand- 
ing. Under the inspiration of his leadership, the church gave with a liberality 
that was truly inspiring." The following is quoted from a resolution of appreci- 
ation adopted by the church March 29, 1905 : "His teaching of high ideals of 
service has led us toward conditions favoring spiritual life and church activity. 
His personal help in developing good plans of systematic giving has done much 
to enable us to carry on our work by the contribution of the cheerful giver, 
and take pleasure in spreading the Gospel in home and foreign fields." 

Relinquishing this charge, against the earnest protest of the church, he 
went, I April, 1905, to Galeton, Potter County, Pa., a rapidly growing indus- 
trial town, the church having a fine building, but in " a deplorable financial 
condition." " Through sane and efficient methods introduced by Mr. Hun- 
sicker," writes one familiar with the conditions, " the church at the end of 
his pastorate was on a firm financial basis and in a position to handle success- 
fully its material affairs. The church also made marked spiritual develop- 
ment and was left better in every way." 

On I January, 1908, his labors were begun in the Baptist Church of 
Mansfield, Tioga Co., a church of 350 members and having a large attendance 
from the faculty and student body of the Normal School. The first year in pas- 
torate witnessed the removal of a large debt which had hung upon the people 
many years. There were also greatly increased missionary offerings. 

At no time in his ministerial career has Mr. Hunsicker sought a charge, 
and every call to which he has responded has been unanimously given. 

He has ably served his denomination on various boards of management, 
including nine years as representative for Pennsylvania on the International 
Board of Baptist Young People's Union of America. 

To aid in the preparation of this sketch, a number of ministers, prominent 
in the denomination, have been asked to give " impressions." From these

(No. 124) 



FIFTH GENERATION 



we select a few sentences. One writes : " One marked feature of his ministry 
is the clear, inspiring interpretation of the Bible. Few men can in a few 
words throw light on the exact meaning of the Scriptures as can Mr. Hun- 
sicker. It is the art of ' opening the Scriptures.' " Another writes : " As a 
preacher and pastor he is beyond the usual average. His independence of 
thought and action and his fidelity to duty are especially noteworthy. Mr. 
Hunsicker is not inclined to do things without thought; but when he makes 
up his mind that a given course is right, he always follows that course to the 
very end. He is a leader by example as well as precept." Another, writing 
concerning the pastorate at Chestnut Hill, says : " There was in him the grace 
of proportion. He was faithful to the trusts of home and society; faithful 
to the trusts of his church. His mission was not to destroy, but to build. 
A master builder was he. His ministry was far-reaching in its influence. 
He attained to greatness — the greatness of usefulness." 

His work in the ministry has been made valuable because backed by a 
life that is positive, intense, industrious, systematic, conscientious, noble, 
and balanced. It has been especially marked as that of a leader by the pres- 
ence of three things : his ability to inject business, sanity, and enthusiasm into 
the work of the church ; his ability to touch the daily interests of the individ- 
ual members of the church, and to serve them nobly in an unusual degree; 
and his preaching of an intelligible, dignified, manly, and vigorous Chris- 
tianity. Andrew Thomas Smith,

ABRAHAM D. FETTEROLF 

Abraham D. Fetterolf was born near Collegeville, Montgomery County, 
Pa., June 4, 1850. His parents were the late Esther and Gideon Fetterolf. 
The Fetterolf s were one of the good old Pennsylvania German families given 
to agriculture, and originally of Berks County. Mrs. Esther Fetterolf (nee 
Hunsicker) was a daughter of the late Mennonite Bishop, Abram Hunsicker*, 
the founder of the Borough of Collegeville, of Freeland Seminary (now 
Ursinus College), of the Christian Society (now Trinity Reformed Church), 
and (with Professor Sunderland) the founder of Pennsylvania Female 
College. Mr. Fetterolf has two younger brothers, A. Curtin Fetterolf, of 
New York City, now general freight agent of the International Mercantile 
Marine Steamship Company, and Horace G. Fetterolf, a manufacturer of 
carpets and Wilton rugs at Wayne Junction, Philadelphia. Gideon Fetterolf, 
the father, was twice married, his first wife being Elizabeth, daughter of the 
Mennonite Bishop John Hunsicker, the eldest brother of Bishop Abram Hun- 
sicker. By Gideon Fetterolf 's first marriage, Abraham D. has two brothers 
still living, Captain H. H. Fetterolf, a veteran of the Civil War and ex- 

141 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



member of the Pennsylvania Legislature, and Dr. A. H. Fetterolf, LL.D., 
who was president of Girard College for twenty-nine years. Mr. Fetterolf 
never received a college education. The busy practical world has always 
been to him a great school, in which by close observation and varied experi- 
ences he learned the higher and more valuable lessons of real life. He 
attended for several years Freeland Seminary during the principalship of 
Rev. H. A. Hunsicker and his brother A. H. Fetterolf. Mr. Fetterolf at the 
age of sixteen years became a public school-teacher, and for several years 
followed that calling. 

When he attained his majority, he went to Philadelphia to engage in 
mercantile pursuits. From 1871 to 1873 he was a lumber inspector; and 
then formed a partnership with a young friend in the flour and feed business. 
From 1887 to 1890, he was a member of the firm of the Roberts Machine 
Company, Collegeville. In 1882 he was elected justice of the peace of Upper 
Providence Township, Montgomery County, and served as such for over eight 
years, resigning to accept a county office. In 1885 he was appointed tran- 
scribing clerk of the House of Representatives and the following session was 
promoted to speaker's clerk, serving in this capacity during the incumbency 
of his boyhood friend, Hon. Henry K. Boyer, In 1899 he was elected 
journal clerk, and in 1893 resident clerk of the Pennsylvania House of 
Representatives. In the session of 1895 he was elected chief clerk of the 
House of Representatives. Notwithstanding the fact that the wing of the 
party with which he was more closely identified had lost the chief control, 
yet so valuable were his services in the machinery of law-making that he 
was again elected resident clerk in 1897, and served in this capacity most 
acceptably until the beginning of the year 1900, when he resigned his offices. 
In 1886 and again in 1896 he was a delegate to the Republican State Con- 
vention. In 1890 he was nominated by his party for the office of register of 
wills of Montgomery County, but failed of an election by yj votes, while 
the Republican candidate for Governor was beaten in the county over 1300 
votes. In 1 89 1 he was deputy clerk of the courts of Montgomery County. 

In 1892 Mr. Fetterolf was unanimously elected chairman of the Re- 
publican County Committee. In this position he served acceptably. 

He resigned the chairmanship of the county committee to accept the 
secretaryship of the Republican State Committee, and served as such during 
the exciting campaign of 1893 and 1894. Since 1889 he has been secretary 
of the Perkiomen Valley Mutual Fire Insurance Company, one of the most 
successful mutual companies in the State. For some years he was a director 
of the National Bank of Schwenksville; is a director of the Times Publishing 
Company, Norristown; and also director of Ursinus College, Collegeville,

Early in life he joined what is now Trinity Reformed Church of College- 
ville, and has been a generous contributor to all its interests. 

When the Collegeville National Bank was started, he was elected its 
president, and is at present filling the responsible position. This work now 
engages his earnest attention. 

Mr. Fetterolf was twice married. In 1872 he married Sallie E., daughter 
of Rev. Henry N. Graybill, a minister in the River Brethren Church and they 
had four children: Clement G., who died when twenty years of age; Horace 
M., who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1907 and is at 
present holding a responsible position with the Patterson-Sargent Company, a 
manufacturing firm with principal office in New York City; the other children 
died in infancy. He was married the second time to Bertha C, only daughter 
of the late Rev. John R. and Mary Prizer Kooken. Mrs. Fetterolf 's father 
was a minister of the Reformed Church, and was one of the founders of the 
Reformed Church of the Ascension, Norristown. Her mother was the 
daughter of the late Henry Prizer, the first principal of Washington Hall 
Boarding-School in the historic Borough of Trappe. 

Mr. Fetterolf is perfectly at home among his fellow-citizens, and enjoys 
to a high degree the esteem and confidence of those who know him best. 
Personally he is modest, unobtrusive, peaceable, and courteous, and whatever 
success he has had in life may be attributed largely to those qualities as well 
as his probity.

Seminary, receiving a good education, and in April, 1876, at the age of 
sixteen, entered the employ of Peter Wright & Sons, in Philadelphia, who 
were then agents of the American Steamship Line. In 1880 he was trans- 
ferred to their New York office. In 1895 he accepted the position of manager 
of the Brooklyn Wharf and Warehouse Company, and remained there five 
years. This company owned fifty piers and nearly all the warehouses along 
the water front in Brooklyn. In 1900 he accepted the New York agency 
of the Leyland Steamship Line, operating large passenger and freight 
steamers weekly between New York and Liverpool, England. 

In 1903 the International Mercantile Marine Company was formed by 
Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan. He was appointed assistant general freight traffic 
manager, but in two years was promoted to general freight traffic manager, 
with headquarters at New York. 

The steamship lines composing this company are as follows : White Star 
Line, Leyland Line, Dominion Line, Red Star Line, American Line, and 
Atlantic Transport Line, controlling one hundred and forty ocean steamships 
with an aggregate tonnage of over one million gross tons. These lines 
maintain service from Montreal, Portland, Me., Boston, New York, Phila- 
delphia, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Galveston to the foreign ports of 
Liverpool, London, Bristol, Southampton, Antwerp, Havre, Bremen, Man- 
chester, also Gibraltar, Naples and Genoa in the Mediterranean. 

His duties are to decide the freight policy of the company, and the freight 
agents throughout the United States and Canada report to him. 

Some of the finest types of both passenger and freight steamers belong 
to these lines. The largest steamers of the world are now being built and will 
be ready in the spring of 191 1. They will be named Olympic and Titania, 
860 feet long and 45,000 tons each.

of duty in every business and social relation, he has established an enviable 
reputation that reflects a character worthy of emulation by the young men 
of the present age.

Hunsicker Brothers, who were then in the lumber business in Philadelphia, 
Pa., as the outdoor occupation was more conducive to his health. He re- 
mained with the firm of Hunsicker Brothers until they went out of business 
some years later. In 1881 he again associated himself with his father, then 
in the lumber business, and later organized the Pennsylvania Lumber Com- 
pany, of which he was the manager until 1888, when, his health having failed, 
he changed his residence from Philadelphia to Denver, Colorado, where he 
afterward lived, engaged in the real estate and investment business, as well 
as the erection of many of the finest buildings in Denver. 

In 1873 he was married to Eliza A. Miller, of North Wales. Two 
daughters were born of this union, Mary Evelyn and Irma Rosalynd. His 
wife died in 1891 at Denver, Colorado; and in 1895 he married Mrs. Flora 
C. Smith, a gifted and leading musician of Denver, Colorado. He was en- 
gaged in handling real estate and securities, as well as a general contracting 
and building business, until his death.

H. ALVIN HUNSICKER. 

H. Alvin Hunsicker was born at Collegeville, Pa., on 20 September, 1864. 
He is the youngest son of Henry A. Hunsicker by his first wife, Mary 
Weinberger. He was born in what is now the main building of Ursinus 
College while his father was still principal of the institution, which was then 
called Freeland Seminary. Born at a period when his father was deeply 
engrossed in educational work, he seemed to inherit a natural taste and inclina- 
tion for books and learning. He received his education in his native town; 
was graduated from Ursinus College at the age of nineteen in 1884. While 
at college he developed into a fluent speaker and a ready debater, a trait that 
grew stronger in after-life and one that served him well in his subsequent 
successful business career. 

After leaving college he went to Philadelphia and accepted a position with 
his father in the lumber business. Leaving the lumber business in 1892, he 
became the manager of a trade paper published in the interests of manufac- 
turers. For seven years he remained in this position, during which period 
he came in contact with the leading industrial concerns in the country. The 
valuable experience gained by associating with many of the leading business 
men in the United States during these seven years, added to his natural 
business ability, resulted in giving him, early in life, an enlarged commercial 
experience which served as a foundation for his later success in the business 
world. 

In 1899 he relinquished newspaper work and became the treasurer of the 
Keystone Oil-cloth Company of Norristown, Pa. This concern had a small 
capital and in point of production was the smallest of its class in the country. 

147 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



Mr. Hunsicker, by his able management, doubled the business in two years' 
time and attracted sufficient attention to entitle him to a seat in the council 
of the larger oil-cloth manufacturers. 

In 1901, during the period of combination in all business lines, a success- 
ful effort was made by Mr. Hunsicker to combine the largest oil-cloth concerns 
into one large company. He secured options on six of the largest and most 
successful oil-cloth plants in the United States, which, with his own concern, 
were combined by him, with the assistance of a western banker, into the 
Standard Oil-cloth Company of New Jersey, with offices in New York City. 
This company secured a charter and started in business in July, 1901. It had 
a capital of $8,000,000 and to-day (1911) is the largest of its class in the 
world. Mr. Hunsicker, in addition to becoming a director and large stock- 
holder, became the secretary of the new company at the start, and in 1906 
its general manager as well, which position he still holds. The company has 
been remarkably successful and has doubled its business during the period that 
Mr. Hunsicker has managed its affairs. The company, while holding a 
commanding position in the trade, has in no sense a monopoly, as there are 
a number of independent concerns, and the competition in the industry is of 
the keenest nature. Its success is due to the progressive methods adopted 
by Mr. Hunsicker and his associates. 

In 1889 Mr. Hunsicker married Helen Theresa Boice, who was born in 
Chester County, Pa. Miss Boice had a remarkable talent for music and had, 
in addition, an exceptionally good and well-trained soprano voice. They met 
on the concert stage. Mr. Hunsicker has always been interested in music 
and is the possessor of a good baritone voice. 

Since 1903 Mr. Hunsicker has resided in Clifton Park, Weehawken, on 
the New Jersey Palisades, where he built a fine home. He at once became 
interested in local affairs, and was instrumental in organizing a Civic Better- 
ment Association, of which he is still the president. He has taken a prominent 
part in the politics of New Jersey, and in each campaign has spoken from 
the platform for the Republican Party. He was a presidential elector in 
1908. 

In club life Mr. Hunsicker has been prominent. He is an exceptionally 
good story-teller and after-dinner speaker. He is a Mason, a member of the 
Hamilton Club of New Jersey, the Automobile Club of New Jersey, the 
Englewood Country Club, the Touring Club of America, the Sphinx Club of 
New York, the Pennsylvania Society, and is the treasurer of the Arkwright 
Club, the leading dry-goods club of New York. He is an enthusiastic golfer 
and spends considerable time automobiling. Travelling has been a pastime of j

Mr. Hunsicker, and he has visited most of the countries of Europe, South 
America, and the West Indies. 

Mr. Hunsicker inherited a good, strong, hardy constitution, and has 
never permitted his arduous business cares to injure his heahh. In personal 
appearance he is said to resemble his grandfather, Rev. Abram Hunsicker, 
being about the same height and having the same well-knit and sturdy 
physique. 

Those of us who mingle in the business life of New York admire Mr. 

Hunsicker not only for his many fine traits of character, but also for the 

position he holds in the business community at large. The products of the 

various enterprises in which he is interested are sold all over the world. He 

is the secretary and general manager of the Standard Oil-cloth Company, 

president of the Sanatile Company, and president of the Meritas Cotton Mills 

of Columbus, Ga., and is a stockholder in various other enterprises. He is a 

good type of the modern man of affairs, and has in his make-up the elements 

of success so necessary to the merchant of to-day by virtue of the broader 

and more comprehensive plan of action with regard to all commercial 

enterprises.

New York, January ii, 191 1. 

MRS. ALVIN HUNSICKER. 

Helen Theresa Boice was born in Chester County, Pa., from Scotch- 
Irish parents. She was married to Alvin Hunsicker June 19, 1889. In early 
life she showed a great talent for music. She was a church organist at the 
age of thirteen. Her musical education was very thorough. She studied 
piano and composition at the Philadelphia Musical Academy, at which insti- 
tution she afterward became a teacher of singing at the age of twenty-one. 
She studied music extensively under the greatest masters in Europe, having 
made fourteen trips abroad for that purpose. Madam Marchesi, the cele- 
brated teacher in Paris, once stated, " Mrs. Hunsicker not only has the finest 
voice that ever came to me from America, but she is the best musician as 
well." Her American teachers were Mr. Frederic S. Law, of Philadelphia, 
Madam Cappianni and Frank Herbert Tubb, of New York City. 

After her marriage she was known in her profession as Mrs. Helen 
Boice-Hunsicker, a name that stands in the first rank of American singers. 
In the interpretation of songs and ballads Mrs. Hunsicker has gained a wide 
reputation. Her song recitals have been a marked feature in her musical 
career. It is nothing unusual for her to sing from memory twenty-five to 

149 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



thirty songs in one program and to give two or three different programs a 
week. She is a great lover of opera and was offered what no doubt would 
have been a fine career in grand opera, but, on account of the objections of 
her family, she never sang on the operatic stage, although she has studied and 
is thoroughly able to sing many of the leading soprano parts. Mrs. Hun- 
sicker has a remarkably fine soprano voice and in addition has a very thorough 
knowledge of music, to which she adds a musical temperament far beyond 
many other gifted singers. Her song recitals were a feature in the musical 
life of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, and other American 
cities, even as far west as California. No singer of ballads ever received 
finer criticisms from America's leading critics. 

During the St. Louis Exposition Mrs. Hunsicker was appointed by the 
National Commission as one of the Board of Lady Managers. 

Mrs. Hunsicker has travelled extensively and has visited Europe many 
times. She is the possessor of an active, alert, and progressive disposition; in 
other words, she must always be doing something. Many a young, struggling 
musician has thanked Mrs. Hunsicker for encouragement and aid. 

At the present time Mrs. Hunsicker is interested in things musical in 
New York City, particularly in the Woman's Philharmonic Society, of which 
she is an officer. She no longer sings in public, except for some charitable 
cause, and they indeed are fortunate who are privileged to hear her. She 
is not a club woman, but a worker in all things musical, both as artist and 
patron.

TWENTIETH CENTURY RESPONSIBILITIES. 

An address delivered by Alvin Hunsicker, of New York City, at the Hunsicker Family 
Reunion held at Collegeville, Pa., August 11, 1910. 

On March 24, in the year 1681, William Penn, by virtue of a loan of £15,000 made 
by his father to the English monarch, received from Charles II of England a grant known 
as Penn-sylvania. Under the terms of the agreement, Penn was the supreme governor, 
with power to make laws, and was given full authority to run the new colony to suit 
himself. Penn's mother was a Dutch lady, and his father an admiral in the English navy. 
In early life, Penn was converted to Quakerism, and it is said of him that he took off 
his hat to no man, including the king. His puritanical ideas, his religious writings, and 
his turbulent debates landed him in jail on several occasions, but he never forsook his 
religious ideals. It was but natural, therefore, that upon receiving his grant from the 
English king, he should have gathered about him a band of free-thinking and free-acting 
emigrants and settled in America. Penn preached his doctrines not alone to the English 
but to the Dutch, the Swiss, and the Germans, and when he decided to come to America 

ISO 



FIFTH GENERATION 



he brought with him emigrants from England, Holland, Switzerland, and Germany. With 
these sturdy sons of Europe, who were prompted, like the Puritans, to forsake home and 
friends, to be emancipated from the intolerant thraldom of religious persecution, seeking 
liberty of conscience and freedom, there came to the wild shores of America in the year 
1717 one Valentine Hunsicker, a sturdy youth from Zurich, Switzerland. He was the first 
of the family in America, and he showed his good judgment in settling in what is now 
Montgomery County, Pa., one of the garden spots of the new world. His wisdom with 
regard to his choice of a home is borne out by the fact that the lands settled by him and 
his family are still in large part owned and occupied by his many descendants. 

The early Hunsickers were men of industry and frugality. They were farmers who 
worked hard and prospered accordingly ; they were men of cast-iron honesty and men of 
honor, and those of us to-day who lay claim to the family name have good cause to be 
proud of the heritage we received, for our ancestors were strong, able, and conscientious 
men who did their part nobly in the development of the new world. They worked hard 
and many of them died for their adopted country. 

The maternal side of the family can be traced back to the year 1550, when our fore- 
fathers were prominent in the civil government of Holland, being burgomasters in some 
of the principal cities and leaders in governmental affairs. 

The descendants of Valentine Hunsicker eventually located in that part of Pennsyl- 
vania now represented by the counties of Montgomery, Bucks, and Lancaster. 

Our early ancestors belonged to the cord-wood age, before the power of steam had 
been discovered, when the farmer made nearly everything he used, from the clothes worn 
by his family to the soap and candles and carpets. He raised his own mutton, while his 
wife carded their own wool, spun their own yarn, wove their own cloth, and made their 
own clothes. A girl of ten had a home-made dress with tucks in it, and the tucks were 
let out each year as she grew taller. Hobble-skirts and Merry Widow hats were not yet 
in demand. Steam-power and the advent of the factory changed the age of barter to one 
of trade. Farming became a process of plowing and butter- and cheese-making. The 
creamery finally brought farming to the simple process of plowing, sowing, and reaping. 
One of the chief troubles to-day with regard to the high cost of living is that farm life 
lacks the varied industries it once included. Coal and steam very materially changed the 
condition of the farmer. A ton of coal stands for 1300 horses for a day of ten hours, 
but a factory will consume one hundred tons a day, equal to using up 130,000 horse-power. 
The Pennsylvania or New York Central Railroads will use 10,000 tons a day on their 
engines, so that the superintendent of motive power every day drives thirteen millions of 
horses. Farming has not been able to compete with manufactures and commerce. They 
have had steam and the farmer has not. In the early days,^our ancestors did not even have 
the advantage of manufactures and commerce. They had to dig things out for themselves, 
and that is why they were such a strong, self-reliant, and robust body of citizens. 

In those early days, however, there was not the opportunity to develop the same sort 
of citizenship as there is to-day. A man then could not equip himself for the battle of life 
with even a superficial education, much less a technical one. What our ancestors lacked in 
the enlarged intellectual equipment that goes with the average citizen to-day, was more 
than made up in their ideal home life. They were good fathers and good mothers. They 
reared large families, and their home life as a whole was better calculated to develop the 
domestic traits of the ideal citizen of which we read so much these days. The olden days, 
therefore, had their advantages as well as their disadvantages. The wonderful opportunities 
of the present time, however, were not dreamed of, because they were impossible. The 
struggle of our forefathers for a place in the history of the country was, therefore, much 
harder than is ours, and their victory, therefore, is all the more praiseworthy. They strove 
to subdue a new country and were necessarily forced to use weapons of the crudest nature. 



ISI 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



We are called upon to face the problems of this wonderful twentieth century, and our 
weapons are of our own choosing. We nevertheless have, as did they, our part to bear in 
the struggle of life, and our duty to our country and to our posterity is no less than was 
theirs, but our responsibility is greater because our opportunity is greater. 

Our early ancestors hewed down the forest and tilled the stump-dotted clearings, but 
these have given way to fertile fields and to busy towns and hustling cities. The farmer 
has developed into the teacher, the preacher, the merchant, the lawyer, and a hundred other 
callings which in the old days, to a large extent, did not exist. The early settler, however, 
did his part. He shared the burden of the community; in other words, he was useful, 
he did things, they were done in his way, but they nevertheless were done. No better 
eulogy can any man have than that it may be said of him, " He was useful ; he took up 
his part in the struggle of life and left the world better because he lived in it." The 
twentieth century has no time for a man who does not work, who is not useful ; it matters 
not whether he falters through fear, incompetency, or a lack of desire. The modern way 
is the busy way, the useful way. Man got away from the monkey by his power to make 
and use tools. He goes back to the ape when his hands have to be cased in kid gloves 
and his brain is indifferent toward honorable and useful labor. If life in the twentieth 
century means anything, it means energy, activity, and usefulness. The world should be 
better for our having been in it, and we should regard it as a glorious privilege to take 
part in the progress of modern achievement. 

There is no excuse to-day for the man who lacks intelligence. We do not mean, that 
much as it is to be desired, every man should receive a collegiate education. We do mean, 
however, that there are so many avenues now open that no man need go without mental 
training in some particular direction. The Government will teach us how to become skilled 
farmers. The trade schools and technical institutions, the free libraries, and a hundred and 
one other avenues are now open to those who want to become skilled in some particular 
direction. We must be skilled in some one thing to succeed, and " what is worth doing 
is worth doing well." In fact, it is the modern waj', the only way to succeed. We must 
know, and, as the old proverb puts it, " Knowledge is power." The twentieth century 
demands the skilled man, the trained man, no matter in what walk of life he may be, and 
his success will be in proportion to the skill and intelligence that he manifests in his 
accepted vocation. 

The modern man must be a healthful man. These are strenuous times, demanding 
not only brains but brawn. The strain on the man of this century is such that only the 
strong man physically can hope for success. The ancient Athenian trained his body to 
excel in sports. The modern man of affairs trains his body to excel in his individual 
undertakings. A good brain may live in a poor body, but its days are numbered and its 
usefulness limited. The man who inherits health is fortunate, and he who cultivates it is 
wise, for without health the race is lost, for the modern twentieth-century pace is too swift 
for any but the strong and robust. 

It is remarkable, but none the less a truthful fact, that the modern man who succeeds 
in any walk of life is a man of integrity. The old proverb, " Honesty is the best policy," 
has been amended to read, " Honesty is the only policy." Human nature is still human 
nature, and here and there we find a dishonest man ; but in these times of large events 
he is the exception and not the rule. It is more necessary now that a man's word should 
be as good as his bond than it ever was before in the history of human endeavor ; when, as 
the Good Book puts it, " His yea shall be yea and his nay shall be nay." Integrity is and 
necessarily must be one of the chief assets of the twentieth-century man, and he might 
as well adopt it in the beginning as in the end, for he must have it and have it in a large 
degree. The great enterprises of the world are carried on by men who do not shy at the 
truth either in business, politics, or in any other profession. The twentieth century de- 



152 



FIFTH GENERATION 



niands and will have a man of integrity, for without this attribute success is impossible. 
We refer to the success in achievement, not in the mere accumulation of wealth. Any fool 
who strikes it rich may become wealthy, but the man who does things, who succeeds in 
accomplishing something, who leaves his mark in the world, lays in the foundation of his 
structure of success the corner-stone of integrity. 

The modern questions entering into the government of this great country call for a 
higher character of citizenship on the part of its people. You and I have a far greater 
responsibility in this respect than our ancestors had. They builded and launched the great 
Ship of State, but to you and to me falls the duty of sailing it. The questions that con- 
fronted them were great and demanded heroic action, but the questions that confront us 
are far more momentous and far more intricate and complex. The wonderful development 
of this rich land has brought in its trail great problems of vital import, — problems that 
must be solved, and in the solving of which we individually must take a part. The men 
who signed the Declaration of Independence and the great patriots who fought for the 
same are to be honored and respected, but the battles of the New World have not all been 
fought. We see a tendency to array the masses against the classes, the poor against the 
rich ; a disposition on the part of politicians to rob the public treasury ; a reticence on the 
part of the average citizen to interest himself in local, state, and national politics; the high 
cost of living, and other questions which enter into our social and economic life, — these 
and many other complex problems are calling for a better and higher class of citizenship. 
It is the duty, and it should be the privilege, of each one of us to study more deeply 
these complex issues and be ready to meet them when they arise. We will need courage 
and a display of wisdom that probably the citizens of this country have never yet been called 
upon to exercise, and we should remember that these problems must be met and solved by 
the average man and in the solving the wisdom of the average voter will be manifested. We 
have great faith in the American citizen, but we should none of us cease to strive to raise 
our standard of patriotism, for on this alone rests the future of our great republic. 

There should be no place in this busy life for the pessimist. Every American citizen 
should be an optimist and turn with a bright face toward our wonderful future, for we 
will soon be riding in ships that will sail through the air, in 6o,ooo-ton steamers that will 
bind together the continents of the earth. We are living in an inventive age, when our 
messages are sent by wireless electricity, and when the problems of living and of com- 
mercial progress are being made easy. We are also living in a golden age, yet success in 
the twentieth century will not be the result of accident but of painstaking, skilful, and 
energetic effort. Opportunity may be great, but responsibility will be correspondingly 
greater. One must be alive and alert, for the leaders of men are doing things — great things. 
A few days since, in reading a copy of a technical magazine for engineers, we learned how 
the tides, currents, rivers, and the waterfalls are being harnessed, and how electric power 
is being transmitted hundreds of miles by wire ; how, through the gas-producer engine, one- 
third of the earth's fuel is to be saved ; how smoke and dirt are to disappear ; how the rail- 
roads and factories will be supplied with power from immense central plants covering a 
radius of 500 miles; how electricity, when the proper storage-battery shall have been in- 
vented, will, through the medium of millions of immense wind-mills, be generated and 
stored for use in whatever quantity needed for the railroad, the steamship, the factory, the 
farm, and the home, abolishing coal, oil, and gas bills, giving to the world light, heat, and 
power at a cost — like education — practically free ; how the turning of a button will wash 
the dishes and the clothes, do the cooking, the churning, the sewing, and the house- 
cleaning, without noise or dirt and without the aid or necessity for menial help ; how the 
aeroplane, with its lyddite tanks, will destroy the armies and navies of the world, thereby 
saving countless millions of dollars and making bloody warfare a thing of the past ; how 
Professor Hayes, Assistant Secretary of Agriculture, has estimated that one extra grain in 



153 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



a head of wheat will mean 15,000,000 additional bushels to the crop in the United States, 
and how, by cross-breeding, he has procured seed that adds five bushels to the acre ; how 
alfalfa, by irrigation, is made to grow in the great American Desert, feeding herds of cattle 
that, a few years ago, would have starved to death in the same locality; how Burbank, that 
wonderful man, has changed the thorny cactus into wholesome fodder; how American 
soldiers will fly ; how boats will cross the Alps ; and how many other marvellous things 
are being done. Truly this is an inventive age — an age of wealth, an age of responsibility, 
an age of opportunity, when man by his own effort can rise from obscurity to greatness; 
when the commerce of the globe is increasing; when the wealth of the world is doubling; 
and when the effort of man — the twentieth-century man, the man of hope, the man of 
health, the live-wire man — is measured only by his desire and his ability to work where his 
successes may be greater and his achievements larger. No man can predict the wonderful 
future of this great country in population, in wealth, or in the part it is to play in the 
progress of the human race toward a higher and better civilization. No man can have a 
prouder title during the present century, with its remarkable possibilities, than that which 
marks him as an active, energetic, patriotic, and successful American citizen; and no man 
can have a better field in which to labor, for this land of ours, to use a Biblical expression, 
is certainly " a land of milk and honey."

ber, 1 89 1, Dr. John S. Niles, born 16 April, 1862. 

Alice Hunsicker Niles was born in Collegeville, Montgomery County, 
Pa. Was educated in the schools of Collegeville in her earlier years, and 
in July, 1884, graduated with honors from the State Normal School in Mil- 
lersville. Pa. After graduation, she taught in the Ashbourne schools for 
nearly five years. 

During her school days in Millersville, she met and loved John S. Niles 

155 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



of Carbondale, Pa., son of Dr. Andrew and Margaret Dorr Niles. After his 
graduation in the State Normal School, Mr. Niles took the prescribed course 
in the Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, graduating in 1891. 

The little love attachment which began in school days in Millersville 
broadened and sweetened, as the flower unfolds and ingrafts itself and sends 
its tendrils out and up, and found its full fruition in the happy marriage 
of Miss Alice Hunsicker and Dr. John S. Niles in the bride's home at College- 
ville, 23 September, 1891, by Rev. Joseph Hendricks. 

Dr. and Mrs. Niles took up their residence in Carbondale, where the 
doctor had an extensive practice. Mrs. Niles entered at once into the social 
life of the city, her fine talents fitting her admirably for its duties. Her 
exceptional training in elocution and music made her a favorite in church and 
charitable work, as well as in the social circles of the city. But it was perhaps 
within the endearing scenes of her own home where her tact and brilliancy 
and solicitude shone resplendent, making it a heart place as well as a home 
place, and bringing within its hallowed portals the love things of life. 

It was here that affection and tenderness blended, and softened in 
reverence, and looked out upon a future that held no cloud ; but, like a shadow 
that falls athwart a silver stream, or the twilight that steals upon us at dusk 
time, this happy home and happier union was to be broken, as a dream is 
broken in its tenderness and sweetness. Mrs. Niles sickened, and died 23 
August, 1 90 1, her death making us think of the rude crushing of a flower, 
as its petals had only opened. All that devoted hands could do to nurse 
her back to health and life, and bring sunshine to her sick bed, seemed but 
the shifting offerings of feeling and nature; and to-day she sleeps beneath 
a little patch of green, where affection oft places a rose or a daisy, or, per- 
haps, a forgetmenot, because she loved these things — sleeps for God's awak- 
ing. No issue. (For sketch and picture of Dr. John S. Niles, see under No.

1884, he was chairman of the executive committee of Montgomery County 
Historical Society, of which he was a charter member. He was also editor- 
in-chief of the commemorative volume. He was a prominent member of the 
Valley Forge Memorial Association and since 1886 was the treasurer and 
chairman of its executive committee. 

He was one of three organizers of Riverside Cemetery and was secretary 
of the corporation from its founding. 

He was useful and influential in the community, as a citizen, a devoted 
husband, and kind father. Was a liberal contributor to the Trinity Reformed 
Church, of which he was a member from his youth, being a ruling elder, also 
superintendent of the Sunday-school for a number of years, until his death,

Colonel John I. Rogers, prominent in the legal, literary, and military 
circles of Philadelphia, was born in 1844 in Philadelphia. He graduated 
from the Central High School in 1861. 

After studying law in the office of the Hon. Charles Ingersol and 
attending the Law School of the University of Pennsylvania, he was admitted 
to the bar in 1865. He soon gained an excellent practice in the civil courts, 
especially in real estate and corporation cases. Of the law pertaining to 
building associations, he was considered an expert, serving as chief counsel of 
the Building Association League of Pennsylvania since its organization in 
1877 until the time of his death. 

In the military affairs of the city and State he played a prominent part. 
As a member of the First City Troop he served in the Pittsburg riots, and was 
selected by the troop to write the Centennial Ode in 1874. 

He was appointed by Governor Pattison as Judge Advocate General of 
the National Guard of Pennsylvania with the rank of colonel. At this post 
he organized the bureau of military justice, was the leader in the codification 
of the new military code of 1887, and was considered Pennsylvania's author- 
ity on military law. Governor Beaver, although of different political faith,

middle name of a maternal uncle. In 1888, when fourteen years of age, the 
family moved from the farm to Norristown, and in 1895 to Jeffersonville, Pa. 
Besides conducting his farming operations, the father carried on an extensive 
business in the shipping and sale of live-stock. After leaving the farm, he 
devoted himself exclusively to this until the time of his death, 19 December, 
1905. In both branches of the business the son rendered efficient aid to his 
father. 

He was educated in the schools of his native township and of Norris- 
town, later attending the West Chester State Normal School. In 1894 he 
entered the Medical Department of the University of Pennsylvania, graduat- 
ing in 1898. Later he took post-graduate courses of study in the Philadelphia 
Hospital. After serving a year as resident physician at the Norristown 
Charity Hospital (1898-1899), he settled, October, 1899, in Conshohocken,

MORGAN H, THOMAS 

(No. 550) 



SIXTH GENERATION 



He was born on his grandfather Hiinsicker's farm in Perkiomen Town- 
ship, Pennsylvania. Left motherless when an infant of a few days, he was 
given, in memory of his mother, her middle family name, the middle name 
being, as well, the family name of the maternal grandmother. 

His education was obtained in the public school of his native township, 
of Norristown, the West Chester State Normal School, and Schissler's Busi- 
ness College, Norristown, the latter attended at night. The family moved 
from the farm to Norristown, then to Jeffersonville. 

As a mere boy he was entrusted with the responsibilities of important 
business matters by his father, who was a heavy dealer and shipper of live- 
stock. When but a youth of seventeen the son was sent to the interior and 
western counties of the State to purchase and ship car-loads of stock. 

In 1898 he accepted a clerical position in Philadelphia. In 1900 he 
obtained employment as entry clerk with the Garrett-Buchanan Paper Com- 
pany, Inc. (of which he is now the vice-president), one of the largest in the 
city. This position he held for a year and four months, when he was sent on 
the road to sell goods. Having purchased an interest in the business in 1907, 
at the next annual election he was honored by being elected to his present 
position. The president in 1909 giving up the active details of his position, 
Mr. Thomas has since been in entire charge. 

Cool in judgment, deliberate in action, unassuming in manner, thoughtful 
of others, industrious, dependable, painstaking, he has, by sheer merit of 
character and achievement, advanced to the position with which his associates 
have seen fit to honor him. 

He is a member of the Presbyterian church. Residence, 3608 N. Nine-

December, 1863. 

He is the son of James H. Allebach and grandson of David G. Allebach, 
who married Catherine Hunsicker, daughter of Jacob Hunsicker. Was 
born in Towamencin Township, Montgomery County, February 18, 1864. 
The first sixteen years of his life were spent on a farm. Through his own 
efforts he acquired an education and took up the study of law in Philadelphia, 
which profession he was compelled to relinquish by reason of delicate health. 

We quote from The United States Revieiv of Philadelphia, in its " Un- 
derwriters of the Middle Department " edition of December 31, 1908, concern- 
ing his career as an insurance man : 

He entered the fire-insurance business in the summer of 1884 as a solicitor for the 
Agricultural Insurance Company of Watertown, N. Y., at North Wales, Pa. Later he 
became local agent of the German American Insurance Company of New York at the 
same place in 1885, and district agent for the same company in 1888. In 1891 he was 
appointed special agent of the Delaware Insurance Company of Philadelphia for Western 
Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, and West Virginia, with head-quarters at Pittsburg, Pa., and 
in 1892 he was appointed general agent of the Dayton Insurance Company, of Dayton, Ohio. 
From 1894 to 1901 he was an independent adjuster and inspector, with head-quarters at 
Philadelphia, and in the latter year started in business for himself at Phoenixville, Pa., where 
he is now conducting a large and lucrative fire-insurance business. 

He is known as the author of " The Fire Insurance Agent and his Agency " and 
"Mutual Fire Insurance Fallacies," the former a standard thesis, and the latter the leading 
analysis of its kind in existence, both works enjoying a large and increasing circulation 
among fire-insurance and financial people.

course in the Davenport Business College, of Davenport, Iowa. While work- 
ing in Iowa he heard very much of the Great Northwest and its wonderful 
resources, its good wages and opportunities for young men. In the spring 
of 1 89 1 he went to Anaconda, Montana, then a small town, but now a city

APPENDIX I. 




PPENDED is a condensed outline of the First, Second, 
Third, and Fourth Branches of the Hunsicker Family, of 
whom Valentine Hunsicker was the pioneer; the body 
of the book containing, in full to date, only the Fifth 
Branch, that of Henry, the youngest son of Valentine. 
We regret the necessity of this restriction, but the 
time and labor required to obtain necessary names, dates, 
etc., of so large a family, and lack of interest or assistance of the descendants 
of these four branches, rendered completeness absolutely impossible.

Dominica Cantati Anno 1601 — Unterthaniger Dienstwilliger Martiners. 
Mollerus." No record can be found of the birth or death of Johannas

APPENDIX III 



17. JOHN HUNSICKER, SR.^ (Jacob^, Christian^, Rudolph^), second 
son and third child of Jacob^ and Catharine Groh, born 10 August, 1840; 
married, 6 November, 1873, Anna E. Sherk, born 7 November, 1842. 

It is characteristic of many of the successful men of the day that they 
have found their real vocation by passing through a series of callings, one 
growing out of the other, which have given them a comprehensive equipment 
for the management of an extensive modern industry, John Hunsicker, of 
Lebanon, the head of several manufacturing industries arising out of the 
great iron development in Lebanon County, is a man of this type. He has 
been in succession farmer, school-teacher, furnace-man, car-builder, boiler- 
manufacturer, etc., the industries with which he is at present connected 
including half a dozen or more branches of foundry and machine construction, 
of which the iron of the Cornwall ore-beds furnishes a principal factor. 

A farmer's son, born and reared in sight of the great iron industries of 
the Lebanon Valley, John Hunsicker may be said to have absorbed his calling, 
in which he has proved eminently successful, from the air he breathed. He 
was born in Union Township, Lebanon County, the son of Jacob and Cath- 
arine Hunsicker. 

His boyhood life was that of the ordinary farmer's boy, with the excep- 
tion that he had more than the usual ambition for an education. This he was 
enabled to gratify, passing through the public schools of his native township 
with additional courses in the Jonestown College, Annville College, and Mil- 
lersville Normal School, his school and college experience covering a period 
of nearly twenty years. Out of this school period should be deducted a term 
of service in the late Civil War, which entitles him to membership in the 
Grand Army, the only club or social organization with which he is affiliated. 

Beginning his business career with the attainment of his majority, John 
Hunsicker alternated between farming and school-teaching for a time; but, 
with an ambition to engage in productive industry on a larger scale, he 
graduated through an experience in furnace work, car-building, etc., until he 
had obtained an all-around equipment in general foundry and machine work, 
becoming eventually a leading director in M. H. Tread well & Company of 
Pennsylvania and the founder of the Union Boiler & Manufacturing Com- 
pany, the Lebanon Stove Company, Lebanon Steam Company, and a number 
of subsidiary concerns, all in successful operation. 

Mr. Hunsicker attributes his successful business career to this multi- 
farious apprenticeship, which, he says, gave him a broad grasp of business; 
of course, along with the experience there was the exercise of industry, per- 
sistence, and the application of the general intelligence which he had secured 

22 337 



THE HUNSICKER FAMILY 



through his school and college training. He brought to the work of his life 
a trained intellect, which enabled him to grasp and keep pace with the 
progressive business methods of his generation. 

Having secured a place in the front rank of the successful men of the 
city of Lebanon, Mr. Hunsicker has not forgotten the duty every citizen owes 
to the community in which he lives. He has given intelligent and continuous 
service in the Select Council of the city of Lebanon for a period of twenty- 
three years, an office without salary and requiring the sacrifice of much 
valuable time on the part of a busy man like himself. 

He is a Republican in politics, but beyond serving the municipality as a 
councilman has not engaged in active political contest, being content to be 
one of the great army of citizens who serve their country by promoting its 
industries and in this way adding to the general prosperity. Loyalty to his 
own country is a characteristic which he has carried to an extreme, which is 
shown by the fact that he has devoted his vacation seasons to travelling in 
all sections of the United States, preferring to become familiar with his own 
land and its attractions and resources to visiting foreign countries with 
languages and institutions entirely unlike those to which he is accustomed. 
He has no particular athletic fads, travel being his principal recreation. 

Like most of the descendants of the German stock from which he sprung, 
Mr. Hunsicker is a man of strong religious conviction and a member of the 
United Brethren denomination in his town. 

He resides at Lebanon, Pa.
