PREFACE. 

The study of Genealogy is both interesting, and of 
great value. Its effects ought to be beneficial in maintain- 
ing the honor and integrity of a family extending back 
through a long line of progenitors whose memory should 
be cherished with loyal devotion to endless day, and whose 
virtues are worthy of emulation. It is commendable to be 
familiar with one's own family history, and eminently 
proper to put it on record in a convenient form for the 
benefit of future generations. 

Such records will be of incalculable value to genera- 
tions yet unborn, and will be highly prized by them, and 
upon the authors they will lavish lasting praise for having 
preserved from oblivion the traditions and history of the 
deeds and lives of the progenitors and their posterity. 

These geneological trees will become heirlooms in the 
family, and volumes will be sought for and placed in public 
libraries. In the family, too, they will wield an influence, 
as the lives of unselfish devotion to God, conscience, and 
family, of the forefathers are recounted, to keep unsullied 
and untarnished the family name. 

The work has been prepared at a much greater sacrifice 
of time than was anticipated. Had all promptly responded 
to communications the work would have been far easier, 
more complete, and less time and expense required. It is 
to be regretted that the records are not more complete, 
but, owing to the lack of interest in the work, some failed 
to respond and furnish the information desired. 

To Mr. Francis Beidler of Chicago, 111., belongs the 
credit of being the prime mover in securing the compilation 
of the Beidler History. Feeling a deep interest in the 
history of his ancestors and the origin of the family, he 
arranged for the collecting of the data and publication of 
the same in book form.

INTRODUCTION. 

The desire to trace the ancestry of the present genera- 
tions, which have become so widely prevalent, for the past 
few years, is most laudable. It is no small honor to have 
had among the early settlers of this country those from 
whom we can claim our lineage. They were of the forces 
which gave character to the formative periods of our 
national life. This sturdy stock, to a large degree, had 
come through the adverse currents and storms of the 
religious persecutions, which were rife on the continent 
of Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. 
Not only was it true of the early settlers of New England 
that they fled from the harsh restrictions of an established 
church in England, but also of many thousands who sought 
relief from the oppressive domination of the state church 
of Germany. The followers of Menno Simon found them- 
selves out of harmony with the polity of the Lutheran 
church, and sought for themselves a simpler and, as they 
claimed, purer mode of worship and service than was 
afforded by the great church of the Reformation. 

Unhappily for them they were in enforced, though 
unsought, opposition to the civil powers of the state which 
endeavored to secure uniformity of worship throughout its 
jurisdiction. To be other than Lutheran was to run counter 
to the authorized forms of religion. To differ from the 
legalized church resulted in fines, imprisonment and con- 
fiscation. The recalcitrant heretics who presumed to be- 
lieve otherwise than the prescribed orthodoxy of the state, 
had but little mercy shown them. Thus Protestants were 
repeating among themselves the hardships and sufferings 
which they had sought to escape by separation from the 
church of Rome. 



VI INTRODUCTION. 

Out from the midst of these turmoils many Mennonites 
sought refuge in the new country, which afforded a safe 
asylum to those who sought religious freedom. Emigration 
from the German states was quite general early in the 
eighteenth century. Many, following in the wake of Wil- 
liam Penn, sought homes for themselves in the unbroken 
wilderness of Pennsylvania. 

Jacob Beidler, the founder of this family in eastern 
Pennsylvania, doubtless was among the emigrants from 
the Rhenish Palatinate, whence so many of that faith seem 
to have come in the early years of the last century. 

Of his ancestry we have no knowledge. He came to 
this country when a young man and was married to Annie 
Meyer, daughter of Hans Meyer, who doubtless came from 
the same region about or prior to 1720, and was the 
progenitor of a numerous family. The history cf his 
descendants is traced in the Moyer family records compiled 
by the author of this volume. 

Jacob Beidler settled in Milford Twp., Bucks Co., Pa. 
The facts of his life are few that we have been able to 
glean. The conditions under which these early settlers 
gained a livelihood were onerous in the extreme. Their 
hardy endurance, thrifty economies, and sturdy piety as- 
sured their success. The pioneers of that period laid broad 
and deep the foundations on which the succeeding genera- 
tions were enabled to construct the fabric of our national 
independence. 

If our forefathers were not to any great degree enrolled 
among those who fought to secure liberties during the 
Revolution, it was owing to their conscientious scruples 
against bearing arms. While others fought during those 
trying years of blood and tears, our fathers in tilling the 
soil and in prosecuting other industries, helped to supply 
the sinews of war. However, in later years when the 
nation's life was endangered by the throes of civil war, 
the sons of these peace-loving sires withheld not themselves 
from their country's call. In many a battlefield of the 
Rebellion they fought and fell and died. Engraven on many 
a monument erected to commemorate the deeds of the 



INTRODUCTION. VII 

heroic dead will be found the names endeared to families 
recorded herein, and again in these recent times when at 
the call of oppressed humanity our country sent her sons 
forth to battle among the islands of the tropics and of 
distant seas, it will doubtless be found that the strain of 
heroic blood has not ceased to flow in our veins. It would 
not go beyond the facts to claim that there are representa- 
tives of this family from its wide spreading branches in 
every state of the Union. There is no trade, business or 
profession but has registered among its members the kin 
of our ancient progenitor. 

Religion was the basis of the rugged virtues of the 
early colonists. The meeting-house was erected almost as 
soon as their homes. And prior to the rude structures in 
which they assembled for divine service, woods and valleys 
were made vocal with their songs of praise in the open air 
assemblages. We, who now enjoy all the luxurious appoint- 
ments of our modern church buildings, can scarcely realize 
the deprivations amidst which our forefathers carried on 
their religious services, and were happy, too, in these 
primitive surroundings, because they could worship God 
according to the dictates of their own consciences with 
none to molest or make them afraid. Of such God-fearing 
men and women were the first families of our ancestry 
composed. By dint of hard toil they wrought out for them- 
selves homes of comfort, and reared amid the simplicity of 
plain manners, homely graces and meagre resources, the 
children, who grew up to call them blessed. We of these 
later generations whose lot is so favorably conditioned, 
will do well to emulate their virtues. We may manifest 
the same power of endurance, if not in subduing the virgin 
soil, in overpowering the forces of evil which threaten our 
nation's perpetuity. We can cultivate their artless piety, 
which honored God in the home, reverenced Him in the 
sanctuary, and promoted His laws in the state. We may 
thus pass the heritage received from the fathers down to 
the generations which may follow us, not only unimpaired, 
but enhanced by the accumulated treasures of wisdom, 
knowledge and religion, the resultant of the forceful 



VIII INTRODUCTION. 

energies which we have consecrated in our day to the 
uplift of our common humanity. 

In closing these introductory remarks I desire to 
remind all interested in the work, of our lasting obligations 
to the compiler of this volume for the persistent and pains- 
taking efforts which have brought it to its present pro- 
portions. One who has never tried to secure such data 
cannot imagine the inertia and indifference to be overcome 
on the one hand and the meagreness of facts to be obtained 
on the other, nor again the difficulties in the way of secur- 
ing exact dates of births and deaths. But in spite of all 
these hindrances the author has by "patient continuance 
in well doing," been able to collect a wealth of facts and 
figures which are both surprising and gratifying. And 
again, there is not a living member of the families herein 
mentioned but has been placed under great indebtedness, 
also, to Mr. Francis Beidler, the one by whose disinterested 
contributions this book has become a possibility. Having 
a high estimate of the value of such a work and desiring 
for others as well as himself a knowledge of our common 
ancestry, he has fostered the undertaking with undimin- 
ished interest from its inception to its close. We, of the 
present, whose lines of lineage run back for nearly two 
centuries to the same honored source, may esteem it a 
welcome privilege to extend our cousinly greeting to one 
who has proven himself a worthy son of worthy sires. 

Yours in ancestral bonds, 

H. B. GARNER. 

Downingtown, Pa., July 1899. 



EXPLANATIONS. 

In the preparation of this work it will be observed that 
all descendants are recorded in the regular order of birth, 
from the oldest down to the youngest, throughout the entire 
connections, each generation being marked consecutively 
from first to last. The Roman numerals placed before each 
name designate the generation to which they belong, as — 

I. Jacob Beidler (first generation). 

II. Barbara Beidler (Newcomer) (second generation). 

III. Susanna Newcomer (Landis) (third generation). 

IV. Barbara Landis (Jacoby) (fourth generation). 
Beginning with the first (I.) ancestor, Jacob Beidler, 

all his children are named as near in order of birth as 
possible; then follows the daughter, Barbara Newcomer 
(II. generation), and her children (III. generation) next, 
and so on down to the last of her descendants. 

Then the next daughter of Jacob Beidler, of the I. 
generation, viz. Anna (Beitler) Oberholtzer, is carried 
down in like manner to the last of her descendants, and so 
on throughout the entire connections. 

When marriages occur between members of the con- 
nection the husband carries the record. 

In the general index will be found the names of all 
descendants mentioned in the book, also names of those 
married in the family, and the pages on which their family 
records are given in the body of the book. 

To find family records see Index of Branches, where 
names of all who had children of the first, second and third 
generations are given.

CHAPTER I. 

Jacob Beidler — account of coming to Pennsylvania, mar- 
riage to Anna Meyer, account of her family history 
and death, and names and marriages 
of children. 

I. Jacob Beidler, born in Germany about 1708, or 1709, 
emigrated to America in the early part of the eighteenth 
century. He is said to have been a "Redemptioner", that 
is, like many other German emigrants of Colonial times, he 
had not the money to pay his passage to America, and on 
his arrival in Philadelphia he was sold by the master of 
the vessel for a term of years, to a party who advanced 
the money for his passage over. It is quite evident that he 
served his time with some one in Chester county, Pa., as he 
at first lived in that county. He afterwards settled with 
his family in "Lower" Milford township, Bucks county, Pa., 
in what was then known as the "Great Swamp", and which 
was settled almost two centuries ago by English and Welsh 
Friends or Quakers, and by Germans of the Mennonite 
faith, who here sought and found refuge from the assaults 
of religious oppression in the fatherland, and here they 
and their descendants have lived side by side in peace and 
"brotherly love", generation after generation, for nearly 
two hundred years to the present time. 

The "Great Swamp" included in its territory several 
townships, and extended into the adjoining counties of 
Montgomery and Lehigh, with Quakertown as the central 
point. In the early settlement of this then wilderness dis- 
trict, much of the land was decidedly swampy and con- 
tinued so until the timber was cut down and the land 
drained. 



2 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

Tradition says the early settlers found the place 
covered with a luxuriant growth of grass, and mostly 
heavily timbered, while the forests were interspersed with 
small prairies, and a rich soil. Here, not having the 
facilities for building houses, they erected their rude dwell- 
ings of bark, and later built more substantial dwellings. 

The thrift and industry of the early settlers soon 
changed the aspect of the great swampy wilderness; land 
was cleared up and drained, the rude huts disappeared, and 
in their places were erected more substantial dwellings, 
with ample barns for crops and cattle, and everywhere 
abundance prevailed. 

Wolves, bears, deer, panthers, and venomous snakes 
were numerous for years. Rattlesnakes were especially 
troublesome to the mowers, who were compelled to wrap 
their legs with hay or other material to ward off their bites. 

There were also Indians located in different places, 
but they were kindly disposed towards these peaceable 
followers of William .fenn and Menno Simon, and all 
through the years of bloody and devastating wars with the 
infuriated and often treacherous red men, there was no 
clash between them and these peaceable, non-resistant 
settlers. The wigwams of the Indians were generally 
along the banks of the creeks, and more particularly along 
Swamp Creek, a branch of the Perkiomen and Tohickon, 
not far distant from the Beidler homestead, and con- 
sequently they were close neighbors. Here on Swamp 
Creek there remained as late as 1770 a remnant of a once 
powerful tribe. 

These early settlers, followers of William Penn and 
Menno Simon, were people who had left their homes and 
kindred in the fatherland on account of their religious con- 
victions, and settled here where they might enjoy liberty 
of conscience. They were a quiet, unassuming, plain, in- 
dustrious and upright Christian people. A people of peace, 
conscientious sons of toil, mostly following the pursuits of 
agriculture, or were millers, weavers and carpenters, avoid- 
ing worldly honors and political ambitions. Later genera-

tions, however, have entered more largely into other 
occupations and the higher professions, until now they 
occupy every walk in life, from that of the country school- 
master to that of the medical practitioner, public officials, 
counselors of the law, state legislators, judges of the 
courts, and college presidents. Then, too, among the 
descendants of these non-resistant pioneer settlers were 
even those who entered armed legions of war, commanded 
in battle and fell in defence of country, home and humanity. 

Jacob Beidler married Anna Meyer, daughter of Hans 
Meyer, a pioneer, who had emigrated from Europe, either 
Germany or Switzerland, in the early part of the eighteenth 
century, or about 1725, and settled in Upper Salford town- 
ship, Montgomery county, Pa., about two miles east of 
Salfordville, where he purchased a tract of land containing 
216 acres, besides the usual allowance of 6 per cent 
for roads. 

The deed of Isaac Pennington and wife and Casper 
Wister, to Hans Meyer, bears date July 23, 1729. The 
original homestead of Hans Meyer is now owned and oc- 
cupied by Jacob L. Moyer, a great-great-grandson. Nothing 
is known of the life and characteristics of Hans Meyer. 
He was a Mennonite and worshiped at the Franconia meet- 
ing-house, where his remains were buried, but he has no 
tombstone. The family of Hans Meyer consisted of the 
following children, viz.: Barbara, Henry, John, Jacob, 
Elizabeth, Hester and Anna. 

Barbara Meyer was born about 1710, and married John 
Fretz, who with his brother, Christian Fretz, emigrated 
from near the city of Manheim, in the Grand Duchy of 
Baden, Germany, formerly known as the Palatinate, or 
Rhenish Prussia. The family had been for a number of 
centuries resident in Germany, but probably earlier were of 
Swiss origin. It is said the Fretz brothers emigrated to 
America during the "last persecution". The exact date is 
not known, but in all probability it was about 1725. 

They, too, had emigrated to America on account of 
religious persecution. John Fretz probably settled for a

time in Montgomery county, then in 1737 or 1738 purchased 
the homestead in Bedminster, Bucks county, Pa., and 
moved thereon, where he continued to live until his death 
in 1772. The children by his wife Barbara were: John, 
Jacob, Christian, Abraham and Elizabeth. 

John Fretz, Jr., born March 1730, married Mary Kolb, 
of Tinicum Twp., Bucks Co., Pa., in 1800; they emigrated 
to Canada, and settled in Lincoln Co., Ont., where he died 
May 4, 1826, aged 96 years. He was a member and deacon 
of the first Mennonite church in Canada. 

Jacob Fretz, born about 1732, married Magdalena, 
daughter of William Nash. He at first lived near Erwinna 
in Tinicum township, on a farm later known as the Ervine 
place. He afterwards moved to Bedminster township, on 
the farm now owned by Aaron Yerger, where he died. 

Christian Fretz, born in 1734, married Barbara Ober- 
holtzer (daughter of Martin and Agnes Oberholtzer), of 
Bedminster Twp., Pa., in 1757. He inherited the old Fretz 
homestead in Bedminster, where he died May 1, 1803. His 
wife survived him twenty years and died May 8, 1823. It 
is a noteworthy fact that at the time of her death she was 
the mother of 12 children, had 109 grandchildren and 103 
great-grandchildren. 

Abraham Fretz was born about 1736. He lived on a 
farm of 226 acres, located in the eastern part of Bedminster 
township, known as Fretz Valley, now owned by H. Erwin 
Fretz and Reed Fretz, great-grandsons. 

Elizabeth Fretz, born July 19, 1739, married Jacob 
Kolb, May 22, 1760. He was born April 16, 1737. They at 
first lived in Tinicum township, and afterwards moved to 
near Blooming Glen in Hilltown township, where they died.* 

Henry Meyer, probably the eldest son of Hans Meyer, 
was born in Germany, and was brought to America by his

JACOB BEIDLER. 7 

Anna Meyer (daughter of Hans) married Jacob Beidler, 
the subject of this work. They settled at first somewhere 
in Chester county, and later in "Lower"* Milford township, 
Bucks Co., Pa., about one mile west of Spinnerstown, where 
he purchased a tract of 50 acres in 1753, and another tract 
of 70 acres and 111 perches was acquired by Proprietaries 
Patent of Thomas and Richard Penn, in 1760. 

In an article of agreement, dated May 1, 1801, Jacob 
Beitler agreed to convey to his son, Christian Beitler, and 
by his will, dated May 2, 1801, directed his executors 
therein named to convey to his son Christian all his lands, 
and in accordance therewith on April 8, 1811, John Beitler, 
surviving executor of Jacob Beitler, deceased, conveyed to 
Christian Beitler, of Milford township, the two messuages 
and two tracts of land in Milford township, containing 50 
acres, and 70 acres and 111 perches, respectively. The 
indenture reads as follows:

To the homestead Christian Beitler in 1812 added by 
purchase from Henry Shelly a tract of three (3) acres and 
57 perches adjoining. 

Christian Beitler died June 26, 1827, and Letters of 
Administration on his estate were granted July 16, 1827, 
to Henry Fretz, his son-in-law, the widow, Susanna, having 
renounced. 

April 28, 1828, Henry Fretz, of New Britain township, 
petitioned for inquest of the above real estate. His petition 
sets forth that Christian Beitler died intestate on the date 
above given, survived by a widow, Susanna, and issue, 
three children: Elizabeth, wife of Henry Fretz (the peti- 
tioner), Nancy, wife of Abraham Moyer, and Mary Beitler. 
The property as returned by a recent survey was found to 
contain 132 acres and 80 perches. The heirs neglecting to 
accept it at the valuation placed thereon ($37.50 per acre), 
it was sold after considerable delay, in November 1829 to 
Abraham Moyer for $36.75 per acre. The deed therefor, 
from Henry Fretz, administrator of Christian Beitler, to 
Abraham Moyer, is dated April 1, 1830. The homestead is 
now owned by Mrs. Alfred Ritter, who is a great-grand- 
daughter of Christian Beitler and granddaughter of Abra- 
ham Moyer, and resides on the property, but the old home- 
stead proper is occupied as a tenant house. 

Of the personality of the pioneer Jacob Beitler we 
know nothing, and the exact time of his immigration to 
America has not been ascertained, but it is said that he 
came with the "second immigration of William Penn." 

Jacob Beitler, a venerable pioneer, lived to the great 
age of 101 years, and is said to have become blind in his 
latter days. He made his Will in 1801, which was probated 
and registered May 12, 1810, and reads as follows: 

In the name of God, Amen. I, Jacob Beidler, of Lower 
Milford Township, in the County of Bucks and State of

JACOB MUSSELMAN. 
FRANCIS SHELLY. 
Probated and Registered May 12, 1810. 

Farmer. Menn's. Children: 1. Barbara; 2. Anna; 3. 
Elizabeth; 4. John; 5. Abraham; 6. Jacob; 7. Christian. 



CHAPTER II. 

Newcomer Branch. Descendants of Barbara Beitler 
(born 1737) and John Newcomer. 

II. — 1. Barbara Beitler, born in 1737, died aged 73 
years. Married John Newcomer. He was born in 1739, 
died aged 64 years, 11 months and 15 days. He was a 
farmer and lived and died in Upper Saucon Twp., Lehigh 
Co., Pa., on the place now (1898) owned by Charles Yeager. 
It is said that he was a Mennonite minister, and that he 
was imprisoned during the Revolutionary War "because 
being a Mennonite he was too conscientious to fight." 

The first meeting-house of the Mennonite congregation 
near Coopersburg, known as the Saucon Mennonite meet- 
ing-house, where John Newcomer and his wife are buried, 
was built about 1738, of logs. This was replaced by an- 
other in 1747. The present house was built in 1841. The 
first congregation worshiping there was the "Old School 
Mennonite", "and that body still retains all their original 
rights and privileges", but as there are scarcely any mem- 
bers of that creed remaining which still adheres to the 
creed of their fathers, they have had no regular pastor 
there since the death of Rev. Samuel Moyer in 1877. The 
"New School Mennonites" are now the only denomination 
holding services there. As no records were kept, it is im- 
possible to give the order in which the congregation was 
ministered to by its pastors, as two or three sometimes 
preached there at the same time, but among the early 
preachers was Rev. Jacob Meyer, who was born in 
Switzerland in 1721, died May 4, 1790, and who served as 
pastor till his death, but how long is not known. It is quite 
probable that John Newcomer was associated with him as 
one of the ministers. John Newcomer made his Will in 
1802, which was probated Dec. 7, 1804. His Executors were

his son, John Newcomer, Jr., and "Christian Beitler, his 
brother-in-law." The will reads as follows: 

In the name of God, Amen. I, John Newcomer, of 
Upper Saucon township, Northampton county, in the state 
of Pennsylvania, Yeoman, do find myself in an advanced 
age, but of sound and perfect mind, memory and under- 
standing, but considering the uncertainty of this mortal 
life, do make and publish this my last Will and Testament 
in manner and form following, viz.: 

1st. I Will and order that all my just debts and funeral 
expenses be speedily paid after my decease, by my herein- 
after named Executors. 2dly. I give and bequeathe unto 
my beloved wife, Barbara, a cow to have the choice out of 
my whole flock, the clock, two beds and bedsteads and bed- 
dings thereunto belonging, to take the choice out of all my 
beds, my ten plate stove, her chest, a table and such other 
of my household goods and furniture as she may choose or 
may have occasion for. I also give and bequeathe unto her 
the sum of one hundred pounds lawful money of Pennsyl- 
vania, to be paid to her in one year after my decease, the 
same to be paid out of my personal estate by my herein- 
after named Executors for her own use & at her own dis- 
posal in case she remains my widow. 

3dly. I Will and order that my beloved wife, Barbara, 
shall have and enjoy all and singular the articles of sub- 
sistance, and the rights & privileges which I have re- 
served and agree upon for her in a certain article of agree- 
ment made between me and my two sons, namely John and 
Henry Newcomer, bearing date the twenty-third day of 
this instant, as in and by the same may appear. 

4thly. I do hereby give and bequeathe unto my said 
two sons, John and Henry Newcomer, the eight last yearly 
payments, each one hundred pounds, which they have 
agreed to pay unto me by the above mentioned article of 
agreement. 5thly. I do hereby give and bequeathe unto 
my son, Abraham Newcomer, the sum of four hundred 
pounds out of the last payment which he owes me and 
agreed to pay by a certain article of agreement bearing

date the twenty-third of this instant, as in and by the same 
may appear. 6thly. It is my Will and order that my six 
children, namely Susana, Jacob, Nancy, Elizabeth, Molly 
and David, each of them shall have his share (including 
what each of them has received of me in my lifetime), 
equal to the shares I have herein given to my three sons, 
namely John, Henry and Abraham, and those of my said 
six children which have not been advanced in my lifetime 
shall have a right to receive first a part of their or as much 
as will be an equal share of those that have been advanced 
in my lifetime and it shall be paid to them by my herein- 
after named Executors in yearly payments, as my said 
three sons are to pay the same according to the agreement 
aforesaid and after the shares are made equal amongst my 
said six children, then it shall be paid to them according 
to their rank of age, and when all the shares of my herein 
named nine children are made equal in the manner above 
set forth, then all the rest, residue, and remainder of my 
personal estate not otherwise herein bequeathed, of what 
kind & nature soever, I give and bequeathe unto my follow- 
ing nine children, namely Susana, Jacob, Nancy, John, 
Henry, Elizabeth, Abraham, Molly and David, equally, to 
be divided between them and to be paid in payments as 
they become due by my said three sons, according to their 
rank of age. 

7thly. In case my said wife should happen to marry 
again then she is only to have the herein bequeathed house- 
hold goods and furniture, but all the other gifts hereby 
given and the privilege expressed in the heretofore men- 
tioned articles of agreement relating to her privilege on 
the premises and her yearly subsistance shall from thence 
cease, determin and be void. 

Lastly. I hereby nominate, constitute and appoint my 
said son, John Newcomer, and my brother-in-law, Christian 
Beitler, of Bucks County, to be the sole executors of this 
my last Will and Testament, and I do hereby give to him, 
the said Christian Beitel, full power and authority to sign, 
seal, execute and deliver a lawful Deed of Conveyance for 
one full, equal and undivided moiety or half part of the

whole into two full, equal parts to be divided of, and in 
two certain tracts of land which I have sold in a certain 
article of agreement, dated the twenty-third of this instant, 
unto my son, John Newcomer. And, also, full power and 
authority to sign, seal, execute and deliver a lawful Deed 
of Conveyance for the other one full, equal and undivided 
moiety or whole into two full equal parts to be divided of 
and in the said two tracts of land sold in the article of

likewise, full power to sign, seal, execute & deliver a lawful 
Deed of Conveyance for the plantation which I have sold 
in a certain Article of Agreement, dated the twenty-third 
of this instant, unto my said son, Abraham Newcomer. 
Further, it is my Will that the above said Deeds of Con- 
veyance shall be delivered unto my said three sons im- 
mediately or their well and sufficiently securing all and 
singular the payments and performance agreed upon and 
contained in the aforesaid Agreements, or when thought 
proper by my above named executors. Hereby revoking all 
other Wills and Testaments, legacies and bequests by me 
heretofore made and declaring this and no other to be my 
fast Will and Testament, in witness whereof, I have here- 
unto set my hand and seal this twenty-sixth day of Novem- 
ber, in the year of our Lord One thousand eight hundred 
and two.

BARBARA BEITLER. 45 

At the age of thirteen his father died. He then made 
his home with his brother Henry and became an apprentice 
in his steam marble works, where he served for four years 
besides attending the public schools. At the age of seven- 
teen he had mastered his trade and worked as journeyman 
for a short time. Although having acquired a common 
school education he felt a desire of obtaining a more liberal 
education. He accordingly entered Mount Pleasant Sem- 
inary, Boyertown, Pa., where he took an academic course 
and entered Palatinate College, Myerstown, Pa., in the 
spring of 1870. In January 1873 he became a member of 
the Sophomore Class at Ursinus College. Having deter- 
mined upon taking up the profession of medicine he en- 
tered the office of Dr. G. T. Fox, Bath, Pa., at the close of 
that term of college. Two years later he graduated at 
Bellevue Hospital Medical College, New York City. Being 
desirous of a more extended knowledge of medicine he 
entered the Senior class at the Jefferson Medical College, 
Philadelphia, where he devoted his time to special studies, 
and also graduated from that institution in the class of 
1876. In July of the same year he located at Ackerman- 
ville, Pa., where he practiced his profession for a period of 
seven years. At this time things began to boom in what 
is now known as the great Slate Belt. Pen Argyl, now a 
thriving town of 4,000 inhabitants, was then unknown, and 
also the spot now flourishing with industries was a wilder- 
ness at the foot of the Blue Ridge mountains. Quarry after 
quarry was opened and developed, until the slate business 
assumed gigantic proportions. Thus Pen Argyl now bears 
the proud distinction of occupying a position in the center 
and heart of the great Slate Belt of Eastern Pennsylvania. 
Dr. Swartz, grasping the opportunity, moved his office to 
this booming town in its early days, and through his un- 
tiring efforts and skill as a physician and surgeon he kept 
apace with the progress of the rising town, gained many 
friends and enjoys a lucrative practice. 

Dr. Swartz served a number of years on the Board of 
Directors of the public schools, and is now the Secretary 
of the local Board of Health, which position he has held

for years. In 1894 he received the nomination for the 
Legislature on the Republican ticket and lacked but 207 
votes of an election in a district whose Democratic 
majority of 3,500 to 4,000 was seldom known to be shaken.

Of the children, Elhanan and Benjamin met with a very 
sad death. Clarence, the eldest, had gone to Port Provi- 
dence for the mail, and when returning was met about one- 
fourth mile from home by his brothers. By the roadside 
was a sand hole, into which all jumped except little Lewis. 
Suddenly the overhanging bank gave way and buried the 
three eldest and the fourth all but his head. Albanus told 
Lewis to give the alarm, and help soon came. Albanus was 
rescued uninjured. Clarence was next reached and was 
supposed to be dead, but was resuscitated in a little while. 
As soon as possible Elhanan and Benny were reached, but 
both were dead, though only covered with eighteen inches 
of sand. The funeral was largely attended. The ministers 
present were Revs. C. I. Thompson, Jacob Meyers, Jacob 
Gotwals and C. C. Walker. The sight was a sorrowful one, 
and many a strong man shed tears as he gazed upon the 
little forms so suddenly cut off upon the threshold of life.

V. — 2. Henry Overholt Stauffer, b. in Westmoreland 
Co., Pa., Oct. 26, 1832; d. May 24, 1899; mrd. Eliza J. Culler, 
at Connellsville, Pa., Dec. 1, 1853. He went to Kansas in 
1867, and settled in Nemaha Co. In 1876 he moved to 
Marshall Co., and in 1887 to Pottawattomie Co., where he 
remained until his death. He died at Manhattan, Kansas, 
where he had gone to receive medical treatment for one 
of his eyes. Shortly after retiring for the night he was 
suddenly taken with heart trouble, and died in a short time. 
His daughter, Miss Ella, was the only one of the family 
with him when he died. 

"Mr. Stauffer, all through life, exhibited traits of char- 
acter and a spirit of social deportment which attracted 
scores of men, women and children to him as confiding 
friends, who no doubt will deck his eternal brow with 
wreaths of undying love." 

He was firm and confiding in his belief of divine power 
in Almighty God, and all through the many adversities he 
encountered in life, he never lost sight of his obligations to 
God. This fact was clearly shown only a few moments 
before he closed his eyes in death, when he knelt beside 
his bed in the presence of his daughter and there offered 
prayer to God and committed himself to His care. He was 
a devoted husband and a kind and loving father. In his 
death his devoted wife and children realize that a vacancy 
in the family circle has been made that no earthly friend 
can fill. Farmer. Church of God. Children: 1. Ella; 2.

wrought at the loom for the family and the neighborhood. 
Mr. Overholt prosecuted his trade continuously till about 
1810, when he and his youngest brother, Christian, pur- 
chased a special interest in the homestead farm, and after 
a couple of years' co-partnership with his brother in farm- 
ing he bought the latter's interest, comprising 150 acres, at 
$50.00 an acre, a price regarded high. This purchase in- 
cluded a log distillery, having the capacity of three or four 
bushels of grain per day only; at that time nearly every 
farm in the neighborhood possessed its private distillery. 
Mr. Overholt soon after the purchase built a stone distil- 
lery which had a capacity of from forty to fifty bushels per 
day, but he had no mill and got his grain chopped on 
Jacob's Creek in what is now Scottdale, and at Bridgeport. 
The hauling of the chop from these places to the distillery 
was principally by cattle driven by Mr. Overholt's younger 
sons, in whose minds dwelt long after vivid memories of 
those slow and dreary days, when the cattle were likely to 
stall at various points along the road. About 1834 Mr. 
Overholt built a brick flouring mill, and thereafter did his 
own chopping for the distillery. 

This mill and distillery were kept running until 1859, 
when both were taken down and on their site was erected 
a large structure comprising mill and distillery, the dimen- 
sions of which were 100 feet in length, 63 in width, and six 
stories in height. The capacity of the distillery is 200 
bushels per day, that of the mill 50 barrels of flour. A 
short time before the erection of the new building, Mr. 
Henry S. Overholt, the oldest child of Abraham Overholt, 
purchased a half interest in his father's farm, flouring and 
distilling business. Abraham Overholt was the first dis- 
coverer of coal in that portion of Westmoreland county, 
and commenced its use before others used it. Prior to its 
discovery coal was brought from the other side of the 
mountains to the blacksmith shops of the region, and which 
it was found stood over the finest strata of coal. Mr. Over- 
holt used to exhibit his coal mines in an early day as a 
curiosity to visiting strangers from the East. Abraham 
Overholt as a business man was distinguished for the order 



ANNA BEITLER. 157 

with which he conducted all his affairs, for his firmness in 
decision, for his promptness, great energy and punctuality. 
He was never known to disappoint a creditor seeking pay- 
ment. He was gentle to his employes and straightforward 
in all his dealings. As a citizen he was what his character 
would indicate. He was public spirited and one of the 
earliest and most ardent advocates of the present school 
system of the State. He was very successful in business, 
and his estate paid out to the heirs about $350,000.

home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Osterhout, at 
Ridgeway, Pa., where she was on a visit, and expected to 
return to Scottdale on the 16th, but on the Sunday evening 
previous she was somewhat indisposed, and before daylight 
it became necessary to send for the family physician. Con- 
sultation became essential, and two eminent physicians, one 
from Cleveland and one from Buffalo, were called, but all 
to no purpose. Mrs. Overholt was of that rare and rich 
temperament that she possessed the power of adapting her- 
self to everybody. Her sympathies were broad, and her 
religious life, while deeply spiritual and profoundly reven- 
tial, was ever lighted up with a glowing cheerfulness. Her 
presence in the church was a benediction to all. Her 
fervent and pathetic prayers and heart-to-heart talks in 



158 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

the prayer meetings will long be treasured in the memories 
of her co-laborers in the church. To her pastor she was an 
inspiration in his work. Ever ready with a word of en- 
couragement and commendation, when necessary and ap- 
propriate, she was entirely free from adulation. Positive in 
her own convictions, she always emphasized them in the 
most kindly spirit. She was always tolerant and charitable, 
and by most intimate friends was never known to give 
expression to an unkindly sentiment. At her funeral the 
singers, with sorrowing, tearful voices, sang the songs she 
loved, and her pastor paid deserved tribute, while flowers 
in abundance covered the casket. God in His mercy com- 
fort the loved ones left. P. O., Scottdale, Pa. Mr. Over-

settled in Bucks county and removed to Westmoreland 
county very early in the history of the latter region.

moreland Co., Pa., July 1, 1875. P. O., Turtle Creek, Pa. 

Abraham Overholt Tinstman, born in Westmoreland 
Co., Pa., was reared on the farm where the Emma Mine 
Coke Works are now located. He received a common 
school education and remained on the farm until twenty- 
five years of age, when he went to Broad Ford, Fayette 
county, to take charge of the mill, distillery and lands of 
his maternal grandfather, Abraham Overholt. 

In 1864 A. O. Tinstman became a partner with his 
grandfather in the firm of A. Overholt & Co., and continued 
to manage this company's affairs until the death of the 
latter. Five years previous to this event Mr. Tinstman 
and Joseph Rist had bought six hundred acres of coal land 
near Broad Ford, and in 1868, in partnership with Col. A. S. 
M. Morgan, they opened what is now called the Morgan 
Mines, and engaged extensively in making coke. Morgan 
& Co. then controlled almost the entire coke business of 
that region, and built a mile of railroad to secure an outlet 
for their product. In 1870 Mr. Tinstman organized and 
built the Mt. Pleasant & Broad Ford Railroad, connecting 
with the Pittsburg & Connellsville Railroad at Broad Ford. 
He continued its president until he sold the entire road to 
the B. & O. R. R. six years later. This was the beginning 
of the development of the coke business in Westmoreland 
county. In 1871 he formed another coke company and 
associated with him Messrs. Joseph Rist and H. C. Frick, 
under the firm name of H. C. Frick & Co., thus establishing 
the great H. C. Frick Coke Co., and this firm built two 
hundred (200) coke ovens, now known as the "Novelty" 
and "Henry Clay" Works. In 1872 Morgan & Co. bought 
400 acres of coal lands at Latrobe, and Mr. Tinstman also 
made extensive purchases of other coal tracts, which led 
to the loss of his entire possessions in the panic of 1873. 
He set bravely to work to retrieve his losses, and in 1878 
and 1880 was enabled to purchase options on coal tracts in 
the Connellsville region. In the last named year he sold 




DANIEL B. BEITLER. 
(See page 234. I 



THE 




ANNA BEITLER.. 161 

thirty-five hundred acres at a good profit, and soon bought 
a half interest in the Rising Sun Coke Works. About this 
time he established the firm of A. O. Tinstman & Co., in 
Pittsburg, and was highly successful in his operations. In 
1881 he acquired Mt. Braddock and Pennsville Coke Works, 
and three years later sold all his coke interests. 

For the last ten years he has been engaged in the 
purchase and sale of coal lands in Western Pennsylvania 
and West Virginia. 

In 1879 was built the fine mansion which Mr. Tinstman 
and family now occupy. The grounds include the site 
where once stood a pioneer cabin, the home of Mrs. Myers, 
which gave shelter to George Washington after his raft had 
capsized in the Allegheny on one of his exploring expedi- 
tions. Presby. One child:

Christian S. Overholt has been a man of long and wide 
experience. His prominent connection with financial and 
industrial affairs made him an admirable and valuable 
member of the Pennsylvania Board of Commissioners. For 
many years he was the manager of the firm of Overholt & 
Co., of Broadford, Pa., a well known firm of distillers. 
Nearly a third of a century ago he retired from the firm and 
became president of the First National Bank of Mt. 
Pleasant, Pa. After ably performing the functions of this 
responsible post for a long time he retired from active 
business life and removed to Philadelphia, where he still 
resides. Baptist. Children: 1. Alice; 2. Charles; 3. Mary;

beth Stauffer, Nov. 1811. She was b. Jan. 19, 1794; d. Nov. 
21, 1887. He followed at different times the occupation of 
farming and distilling. In the autumn of 1858 he accom- 
panied his son Abraham to Fostoria, Ohio, where the latter 
had purchased a farm. During the remaining years of his 
life he made his home with this son. In disposition he was 
impulsive and quick spoken, but kind hearted and generous 
to a fault. His wife survived him nearly twenty years. 
She was a sister to his brother Abraham Overholt's wife, 
a daughter of Rev. John and Elizabeth Stauffer. 

Christian Overholt and his wife were faithful members 
of the Mennonite church, and after moving to the State of 
Ohio, they drove a distance of twelve miles to attend wor- 
ship in a church of their chosen denomination. 

To the grandchildren one of the most precious mem- 
ories is that of their grandmother. Her son and his wife 
were untiring in their devotion to her, while her presence 
in their home was ever like a gracious benediction. Her 
son often said of her, "'I have never seen Mother out of 
patience, nor heard her utter one unkind word." She re- 
tained full possession of her mental faculties until her 
death at the age of nearly ninety-four years. Children: 1.

Dr. Jacob A. Shesler was born near Lancaster, Fair- 
field Co., Ohio, Aug. 30, 1836. He was born and raised on 
a farm, and nothing of special interest occurred in his life 
until in the spring of 1852, when he, with a company of 
young men, left for California across the "Plains." Many 
interesting incidents of his perilous journey, for want of 
space, must be passed over, such as sickness and death 
on the train, a burial scene on the Plains, witnessing the 
cremation of an Indian chief, a war dance by 2,000 Indians, 
a murder on the emigrant road, the capture of the mur- 
derer, his trial, conviction and execution, all done between 
sunup and sundown, scenery of the South Pass of the 
Rocky Mountains, a narrow escape from a pack of wolves, 
a foot race for life from a band of hostile Pawnee Indians, 
"Devil's Gate" on the Sweetwater, and cordial reception by 
"Jim" Beckwith, a former Indian Chief of the Crow Indians, 
etc. Suffice it to say that he safely arrived in Butte county 
in September following without a dime in his pocket. 

Here he hired out to a mining company at four dollars 
per day and board. A few months later he had charge of 
the working "gang," and a short time subsequently he 
became one of the owners of the mine. Being a stranger 
in a strange land, and without experience, his life's 
struggles began with its alternations of successes and fail- 
ures. At one time his mining property in Sierra county was 
estimated to be worth from $80,000 to $100,000, but by 
trusting to the honesty of a "friend," he became involved 
in a law-suit which cost him over $3,000, and the loss of all 
his valuable mining property. 

In the great upheaval of political parties in 1856 he 
took an active part in the formation of the Republican 



ANNA BEITLER. 175 

party in Sierra county and became its first candidate for 
the Legislature from the 17th Judicial District the follow- 
ing year. He was one of the nine delegates from Sierra 
county to the first Republican State convention ever held 
in California, which convened in the city of Sacramento, 
Feb. 16, 1860, for the purpose of electing delegates to the 
National Republican convention held in Chicago, which 
nominated the immortal Abraham Lincoln as its standard- 
bearer. 

On the 11th day of August 1860 Dr. Shesler boarded the 
steamer for Panama, and was on his way to his old Ohio 
home, which destination he reached in September, after 
an absence of eight years and five months. These were 
the most active years of his life and were crowded with 
many dangers, disappointments, successes and failures, 
labors of body and mind, interspersed with many incidents 
of pleasure. 

In 1863 he enlisted in the 49th O. V. I. and served his 
time till after the close of the war. 

Soon after marriage he with his wife moved to the 
town of Fostoria, Ohio, where they resided until the fall of 
1881, when, on account of the failing health of Mrs. Shesler, 
they moved to California, selecting the city of San Jose, 
Santa Clara county, as their place of residence, and where 
they still reside. In 1874 he began the study of medicine, 
and graduated from the Physio-Medical College of Cincin- 
nati, Ohio, in March 1877, which profession he is still fol- 
lowing as a "specialist." In 1891 he became afflicted with 
partial paralysis of the motor nerve, which deprived him 
of an active practice. Mrs. S., Christian Ch. Children:

John Beitler made his will the 6th day of October, 1823, 
which reads as follows: 

I, John Beitler, of Pikeland township, 
JOHN BEITLER. in Chester county, in the State of 

Pennsylvania, farmer, being weak in 
body and of sound mind, memory and understanding, but 
considering the uncertainty of this transitory life, do make 
and publish this my last will and testament, in manner and 
form following: To-wit, First. It is my will and I do order 
that all my just debts and funeral expenses be duly paid 
and satisfied as soon as conveniently can, after my decease. 
Item: I give and bequeathe unto my beloved wife Hannah, 
one thousand dollars; one cow, of her own choice; and one 
room that she may choose and privilege of the whole house, 
firewood cut and delivered at the door, two beds and furni- 
ture of her own choice, and such household and kitchen 
furniture as she may choose to keep for her own use, and, 
yearly, ten bushels of wheat, five bushels of rye, ten 
bushels of corn, and four bushels of buckwheat, a horse and 
chair during her natural life, one fat pig at least 200 pounds 
weight, and privilege to keep another yearly. The above

one thousand dollars to be her own, the rest during her 
natural life, in lieu of her dower. 

Item. I give and bequeath to my son David, thirteen 
hundred and thirty-three dollars and thirty-three cents. 

Item. I also give and bequeath to my son David, the 
plantation whereon I live, to hold, to him, his heirs and 
assigns forever, valuing it at sixty dollars an acre, and he 
to have one equal tenth part out of that alter the said tenth 
part and the above thirteen hundred and thirty dollars and 
thirty-three cents is taken out of the said $60 per acre, he 
paying the remainder to my executors hereinafter to be 
named, in ten years after my decease, without interest; 
and as touching all the rest, residue, and remainder of my 
estate, realty and personal of what kind and nature soever, 
tne same may be in the county of Chester or elsewhere, I 
give and bequeath to my ten children, share and share 
alike, I having bespoke a chair for my daughter Mary at 
one hundred and forty-five dollars, which she is to have as 
part of the said dividend. 

And lastly: I nominate, constitute and appoint my sons 
Jacob and Joseph Beitler to be executors of this my will, 
hereby revoking all other wills heretofore made and declar- 
ing this and no other to be my last will and testament. 

In witness wnereof I have hereunto set my hand and 
seal the sixth day of October, in the year of our Lord one 
thousand eight hundred and twenty-three.

SECTION I. 

III.— 1. Jacob Beidler, b. in Bucks Co., Pa., Nov. 27, 
1778; d. Dec. 25, 1864; mrd. Mary Landis, about 1802. She 
was b. near Franconia, Montgomery Co., Pa., in 1779; d. 
Aug. 14, 1823. 

Reared on a farm, industry, frugality and economy were 
a prominent part of his early education. Early trained in 
the religious faith of his forefathers he became a devout, 
conscientious and consistent member of the Mennonite 
church; full of zeal for the cause of his Master, a regular 
attendant on the services of the church and with an open 
hand of charity for the cause, setting a godly example be- 
fore his family and ever maintaining the deportment of a 
Christian man both at home and abroad. His advice and 
counsel were sought by many and he was esteemed as one 
of excellent judgment. 

When a young man he labored very hard, and later in 
life he related that many a time on awaking in the morn- 
ing his fingers were so stiff and swollen he was obliged to 
use one hand to open the fingers of the other before he 
could put on his garments. 

He also related that when a boy, during the year 
known as the cold season, he often went to mill on horse- 
back with a quantity of dried chestnuts, dried potatoes and 
a little rye in a sack to be ground for griddle cakes — an 
ample schooling to make the lesson of frugality impressive. 

About the year 18(T2 he wooed and won the hand of 
Mary Landis, who mutually with him as a loving and 
affectionate wife and faithful mother shared the joys and 
carried the burdens of life until her death, which came all 



186 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

too soon in the year 1823. To them were born the following 
children: 1. John; 2. Elizabeth; 3. William; 4. Jacob; 5. 
Abraham; 6. Joseph; 7. Daniel; 8. Israel; 9. Mary; 10. 
Hannah; 11. Samuel; 12. Josiah. 

After marriage they settled on the farm in Chester 
Valley, a little over two miles from Valley Forge, on the 
road to Phoenixville, where now lives his daughter, Hannah 
Beidler. Here the children were reared and received their 
early education at the old Diamond Rock schoolhouse. 
During the years of their bereavement the eldest daughter, 
Elizabeth, took charge of the family and with a matronly 
hand administered the affairs with great credit. 

In the year 1825 he married Frances Roher, who with 
a motherly heart assumed the grave and responsible duties 
of the home, being much loved and respected by the chil- 
dren. She was b. Nov. 5, 1780; d. Apr. 8, 1855. At the time 
of this marriage, however, some of the older members of 
the family began to feel the necessity of pushing out into 
the world for themselves, thus diminishing the family cares 
at home; and with the coming and going of the years, 
Mr. Beidler became one of the thrifty and prosperous 
farmers of the valley. 

Not many years after his second marriage he built a 
commodious family residence on the northeast part of the 
old farm just at the foot of the Valley hill, with comfortable 
outbuildings, to which he retired, giving the care of the 
farm to his son, Rev. Israel Beidler. Some time in the 
30's he built, or was instrumental in building, the Menno- 
nite meeting house in the valley, a little over one-half mile 
west of his home. For some reason, religious services were 
seldom held here and since his death the property has 
fallen into decay. 

April 8, 1855, he was again bereft, by the death of his 
second wife. He was fortunate, however, in having his 
youngest daughter, Hannah, still at home, who tenderly 
cared for him during the remainder of his life. He was 
exceedingly fond of fishing and after retiring from the 
farm he often went during the summer season to the 



JOHN BEITLER. 187 

Schuylkill river and seldom returned without a good catch. 

He almost lived to see the close of the great rebellion, 
of which he was repeatedly heard to speak prophetically 
long years before it took place, as certain to come. He 
died Dec. 25, 1864, aged 86 years, 28 days, and his remains 
sleep in the quiet little churchyard beside those of loved 
ones gone before. 

After his death the homestead came into the possession 
of his daughter Hannah, who has presided there with 
matronly neart for nearly forty years. It, however, recently 
passed into the hands of her niece, Mrs. M. F. Kemble, of 
Philadelphia. It is still the dear old home and the hearts 
of the grandchildren turn toward it with many fond re- 
membrances. And it is hoped a place so cherished may not 
soon pass into the hands of strangers. 



IV. — 1. John Beidler, b. in Chester Co., Pa., Oct. 14, 
1803; d. in Canandaigua, Ontario Co., N. Y., Mar. 25, 1845; 
mrd. Rauchy Ann Leacock, Oct. 18, 1833. She was b. at 

Mt. Pleasant, N. J., Feb. ; d. in Lenawee Co., Mich., 

Dec. 12, 1883. John Beidler received a good education and 
was an excellent scribe. He was the oldest of eight chil- 
dren, in consequence of which his services were in great 
demand on his father's farm. On attaining his majority 
he engaged in the purchase of cattle and sheep for the 
Philadelphia market, often going on horseback as far west 
as the central and western portion of the State of Ohio 
and purchasing cattle for the Cincinnati market. In the 
spring of 1832 he went into the State of New York to 
purchase a drove of sheep which he procured principally 
in the county of Ontario, during which time he put up with 
an old gentleman, a well-to-do farmer in the township of 
East Bloomfield, by the name of John B. Allen. Here he 
became acquainted with Miss Rauchy Ann Leacock, Mr. 
Allen's granddaughter, and after marketing his sheep in 
Philadelphia, returned in the autumn and they were mar- 
ried Oct. 18, 1833. He purchased an excellent farm of 117

acres on the west shore of Canandaigua lake, three miles 
from the village of Canandaigua, in the county of Ontario. 
This farm contained an excellent apple orchard, which he 
greatly improved by grafting until it was said he had the 
best fruit in the county and none better in western New 
York. He was the first man in the State to attempt the 
shipping of green fruit to supply the then destitute western 
market. In the fall of 1848 he packed 1,200 barrels of 
choice apples, which he shipped, but owing to a lack of 
better facilities than the slow transportation of the Erie 
canal his apples were frozen before they reached Buffalo 
and the whole cargo was a total loss. He was exceedingly 
fond of fishing, and fish were then abundant. He was the 
first man on the lake to possess a large seine, which he 
and two others knitted during the winter season. He was 
counted the most successful fisherman on the lake. Other 
parties becoming jealous of his success came in the night 
and destroyed ' his seine. The perpetrators were never 
apprehended. Politically he was a strong Whig, and while 
greatly interested in putting others into office, he refused 
to hold any office himself. 

In the days of "Old Tippecanoe" he and one of his 
neighbors employed men and went into the woods and cut 
down a large tree; they hewed out a large canoe 42 feet 
long, mounted it on wheels and put six span of horses be- 
fore it; twenty men rode in it with paddles, with the 
American flag for a sail, and rode to the election. In the 
month of October, 1844, he was taken ill with influenza, 
from which he suffered greatly in the head, and after being 
severely salivated with calomel a large seton was put in 
the back of his neck, all of which was of no avail. He 
lingered until March 25, 1845, when he died with what 
physicians termed abscess on the brain. 

He was not a member of any church, but was a moral, 
upright man, highly respected and greatly beloved, and 
kindly disposed; he was the friend of the poor. After his 
death the farm was sold, and the family, consisting of his 
wife, three sons and one daughter, removed to Chester

3. Henry; 4. George. 

V. — 1. Rev. Dr. Jacob A. Beidler, b. in Canandaigua, 
Ontario Co., N. Y., July 14, 1834; mrd. Ann E. Ingalls, of 
Dover, Mich., Mar. 28, 1859. P. O., Monroe, Wis. Minister 
and physician. He was not yet eleven years old at the 
death of his father, in March 1845. After removing to 
Chester Co., Pa., he was one year with his grandfather, 
and afterwards was with his uncle Abraham in Montgomery 
county until he had passed his sixteenth year, when he 
removed to Lenawee Co., Mich. Here, after attending 
school for a year, he engaged in teaching and later served 
two terms as superintendent of schools. He taught in 
Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and Missouri, and while in Illinois 
had the opportunity of taking up the study of medicine, 
which he pursued the greater part of two years privately, 
with the advantage of a hospital or infirmary practice. He 
then began the study of theology, in 1856, and was first 
licensed to preach the gospel in November 1858. 

In the spring of 1858 he and two others, Newell Sexton 
and Aretus Sexton, brothers, packed their carpet sacks and 
started on foot for the western part of Missouri, a distance 
of over 300 miles. The rivers were swollen and no bridges, 
and they were often obliged to wade. On one occasion 
they waded across the bottoms of Linn river from one till 
four o'clock in the afternoon and were so chilled that 
Newell Sexton took fever and died. They were in water 
from knee deep up to their arms all that time and the 
water as cold as ice; often they were obliged to carry 
their carpet sacks on their heads that they might have a 
change of dry clothing on reaching the other side. 

In 1859, Mar. 28, he was married to Ann Elizabeth, 
daughter of Daniel C. and Almyra Ingalls, of Dover, Mich., 
and, returning to the State of Missouri, settled at Hamilton 
in Caldwell county. Here he remained until the breaking 
out of the rebellion. In the autumn of 1860, after the 
presidential election, the excitement ran very high, making

it unsafe for people from the Northern States, and for six 
months they were not certain on going to bed at night 
that the house would not be burned over their heads. 
They lived in constant fear of their lives until the 27th, day 
of April, 1861, when they were warned by a committee that 
they must leave the State or enter the rebel ranks, and 
were given thirty-six hours in which to make up their 
minds. After being notified a meeting was held at his 
house and they were not long in reaching a decision, as 
there were only eight Union families in town. * So on Sun- 
day they gathered up a few things and on Monday morning 
at 7:30 o'clock left for Illinois. He landed in Quincy at 6 
p. m., with a wife and one child and not money enough to 
buy a cracker, but God raised up friends for them. 
They left their house furnished and provisioned for the 
rebels. This was the second misfortune that overtook him, 
as he lost all his property in the crash of 1857. 

Returning to Michigan they were made comfortable 
and happy. In 1868 he entered the Synod of Northern Indi- 
ana and in January 1869 became pastor of Yellow Creek 
charge in Stephenson Co., 111., and united with the Synod 
of Northern Illinois, of which Synod he is still a member. 
He has been instrumental in building three new churches 
and organizing as many new congregations. He was pastor 
at Yellow Creek for six years, at Twin Grove two years, 
at Davis seven years, at Lanark eight years, and six years 
at Monroe, during which time he was pastor at Twin Grove 
also. He was several times honored with the Presidency 
of Synod, has often been placed on important committees 
in the work of the Synod, and was several times chosen 
as a delegate to the General Synod. For twenty-nine years 
he has continued a member of this body amid the coming 
and going of scores of his brethren, and is at this time its 
oldest active member. In 1878 he was legally authorized to 
continue the practice of medicine under the new law and 
is an active member of the Northwestern Homoeopathic 
Medical Society. He continued the practice during the 
years of his ministerial life as a secondary matter, al- 
though quite successful. Having passed his three score and

nearly four years he is still active, and with the poet 
can say: 

" The future lies before me, 

And 1 know not where I'll be, 
But where'er my path be leading, 
Savior, keep my heart with Thee."

V. — 3. Henry Allen Beidler, b. in the town of Canan- 
daigua, N. Y., Aug. 2, 1841. After the death of his father he 
also removed to Chester Co., Pa., where he resided with 
his grandfather until the war of the Rebellion in 1861, when 
he enlisted, first in the three months' service, but before 
his time expired he enlisted in the 97th Regiment of Penn- 
sylvania Volunteers, Co. H. His company was sent to 
Florida to guard a point at or near St. Augustine. Here he 
remained until Apr. 3, 1864, when he returned home on fur- 
lough, at which time he re-enlisted during the war. Return- 
ing to his company he remained in Florida until they were 
ordered to join Sherman at Charleston, S. C, and with this 
army marched on Petersburg, Va. Before Petersburg he 
was wounded in the thigh, but was soon able to rejoin his 
company. In front of Petersburg his detachment lay in the 
trenches three days without relief, food or water. The 
weather was exceedingly hot and rainy; there was water 
in the bottom of the trenches from three inches to one 
foot in depth, and the boys were obliged to dig holes in the 
bank in which to lie. From where he lay he could throw a 
stone into the rebel works. The excessive heat and fatigue 
brought on fever and he was taken to the 18th Army Corps 
Hospital, but lived only three days. He expired on the 2d 
day of August, 1864, aged twenty-three years. He was a 
brave soldier, having on several occasions won promotion, 
which he refused.

Co., Pa., in the fall of 1845, he remained there but one year 
and with his mother went to the State of Michigan, where 
her father's people had settled some years before. Here he 
remained for some years, then removed to Illinois, where 
he remained six years, and then returned to Michigan, 
where he was married to Phoebe Ann Jackson. P. O.,

His early education was received in West Chester, Pa. 
When about thirteen years of age his parents moved to 
Minneapolis, Minn., where he spent several years in various 
employments, mainly in the flour mills of that city. Re- 
suming his studies, he graduated from Macalester College, 
St. Paul, Minn., in 1894, with the degree of B. R. In the 
fall of the same year (1894) he entered Princeton Theolog- 
ical Seminary and completed the course in that institution. 
In February 1897, several months before his studies were 
completed, he was called to supply the pulpit of the Cen- 
tennial Presbyterian church, at Jeffersonville, Montgomery 
Co., Pa., and on May 13 of the same year was ordained and 
installed as pastor of that church. In August 1900 he ac- 
cepted a call to the First Presbyterian church of Worcester,

mrd. Anna Longacre. She was b. Nov. 3, 1784; d. Nov. 26, 
1858. He purchased the farm at Lionville and lived thereon 
the rest of his days. The farm was also the residence of 
his son, John Beitler, but is now (1899) occupied by the 
latter's son, Holland Beitler. 

John Beitler, the subject of this sketch, was of German 
descent and combined the generous hospitality and habits 
of industry for which the true type of his race are proverb- 
ial. Dying at the great age of nearly ninety-three years, he 
had survived all his youthful companions of his own age, 
and remained to the succeeding generations an object of 
veneration for purity of character and kindliness of nature, 
such as is rarely found. Lacking much book education, yet 
he possessed such clear common sense and soundness of 
judgment as to make his counsel sought by high and low. 
Though living to an age when most minds become feeble,

JOHN BEITLER. 209 

his intellect remained unclouded to the last, and he de- 
lighted to have his neighbors and acquaintances call to see 
him and talk over current events of the day. His mind was 
richly stored with reminiscences of the past, reaching far 
back into the dim distance beyond the memories of those 
by whom he was surrounded, and constituted a living his- 
tory of the neighborhood for three-fourths of a century. 
He was one of the County Commissioners of Chester 
county in 1838, and during his term the present county jail 
at West Chester was built. He was also a member of the 
State Legislature of Pennsylvania in 1843. To both of these 
positions he was chosen for his rare honesty and freedom 
from the scheming of the politicians. His funeral took 
place on the 26th of December, 1872, which was the most 
inclement day of the season; the respect in which he was 
held was proven by those attending regardless the extreme 
cold and blinding hail and snow. He lived to be loved 
by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, an esteemed 
citizen. Full of years, at the advanced age of ninety-three, 
he passed away, the lamp of life slowly flickering out. He 
and wife were buried side by side in the Friends burying- 
ground at Lionville. Children: 1. Jesse; 2. Hannah; 3. 
John; 4. Mary; 5. Julia; 6. Eleanor.

from that time until his death. He was a minister of the

hurst and wife joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter 
Day Saints (commonly called Mormons), about the year 
1845. They soon thereafter left Chester Co., Pa., and went 
to Nauvoo, Illinois, where they resided about a year, when 
they were driven away by a mob, with all the rest of the 
Latter Day Saints, from their homes and temple. They 
crossed the Mississippi river and went to the Rocky Moun- 
tains, taking their effects — farming implements, seeds, 
grain, provisions, bedding for themselves and family in one 
wagon, drawn by an ox team. While camping on the banks 
of the Missouri river in a tent, with the weather so cold 
as to freeze the river over, a son was born to them. After 
a long and tiresome journey they reached the Salt Lake 
Valley in September 1847. They at once set to work to 
prepare the soil to grow their crops and to build a fort for 
protection from the Indians. The land was very dry and 
barren, and ditches had to be dug so as to irrigate the land 
before any crops could be grown. The first year they suc- 
ceeded in raising enough for seed, with a little to spare for 
food. Provisions were very scarce, and they lived mostly 
on roots and wild fowls. The second year after they had 
planted their crops, millions of crickets came and the 
prospect was that they would destroy everything, but the 
gulls flew in flocks from the lake every day and devoured 
the crickets, and thus a part of the crop was saved and the 
people delivered from starvation.

Samuel Bringhurst, being a mechanic, spent most of 
his time in making grain cradles, stocking plows and re- 
pairing wagons. In the spring of 1850 he went two hundred 
miles south of Salt Lake City and established another 
colony, after which he returned to Salt Lake City and con- 
tinued at his trade. As one of the first settlers of Salt Lake 
Valley he did a great deal to build up and improve the 
country, which in fifty-two years has increased in popula- 
tion to about 300,000. Children: 1. William; 2. Anna;

Bishop William A. Bringhurst was born at Lionville, 
Chester Co., Pa., Jan. 26, 1839. Removed with his parents 
to the city of Nauvoo in the State of Illinois, in the year 
1845, they having become members of the Church of Jesus 
Christ of Latter Day Saints previous to moving west. In 
1847 the family, consisting of father, mother and three 
children, crossed the plains, traveling one thousand miles 
to Salt Lake Valley in a wagon drawn by three yokes of 
cattle, the trip lasting all summer. They arrived in the 
valley in September of that year, having endured many 
hardships and privations consequent upon such a journey. 
William A. Bringhurst, during the early settlement of the 
country in common with the community, endured many 
privations and hardships caused by scarcity of food and

clothing; starvation stared them in the face, but through 
the mercy of the Lord they were preserved. During his 
boyhood days his time was spent herding cattle in the 
summer and attending school in the winter. His chances 
for obtaining an education were limited, having to labor 
almost continuously for the support of the family. At the 
age of sixteen he entered his father's shop and learned the 
wheelwright trade. In the spring of 1862 he entered the 
service of the United States as a volunteer, when a call was 
made by President Lincoln upon Governor Young for a 
company of volunteers to suppress Indian troubles east of 
Salt Lake, in which service he continued until the com- 
pany was disbanded on the 9th of August, 1862. Early in 
life he was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus 
Christ of Latter Day Saints, by Apostle John Taylor. In 
the spring of 1866 he removed from Salt Lake City to 
Toquerville, Utah, a distance of 300 miles, and engaged in 
the mercantile business, which he still follows. On the 
15th of February, 1874, he was ordained to the office of 
bishop in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 
which office he continues to hold, presiding in the town of 
Toquerville. Considerable of his life has been spent upon 
the frontier, where continual vigilance was the price of 
safety from hostile bands of Indians.

Daniel and Frances (Reiff) Brower, about the year 1810. 
She was b. Nov. 1, 1788; d. May 13, 1852. He settled on a 
farm near Pughtown, Chester Co., where he remained until 
early in the twenties. Owing to the depreciation in the 
value of farm properties during the stringent times of 1820 
to 1825 his property was sold, and he became landlord of 
the Black Bear hotel at Paoli. He removed from there 
about 1830 to the hotel and quarries at Howellville, Chester 
Valley. It was here while superintending a blasting opera- 
tion that, owing to a premature explosion, a rock fell upon 
him and crushed his right leg below the knee, resulting in 
its amputation. He used an artificial wooden limb the rest

of his life and he became known far and near as the "man 
with the wooden leg." About 1836 he moved to Philadel- 
phia and became landlord of the Western Market Inn, on 
Market street between 16th and 17th streets. The site is 
now occupied by the freight depot of the Pennsylvania R. R. 
This stand was widely and favorably known to the farmers 
and market men of the adjacent counties, who were ac- 
customed to put up at " Beitlers " on their weekly trips to 
the Philadelphia markets. He continued in this business 
until a few years before his death, when he was succeeded 
by his son Daniel. He was a man of large physical propor- 
tions, being over six feet in height and of large frame and 
weight in proportion. He and his wife were adherents of 
the Mennonite church, and they are both buried with some 
of their children in the Diamond Rock Mennonite burying- 
ground in Chester Valley, not far from Howellville. Chil-

May 31, 1814; d. in Philadelphia, Apr. 24, 1881; mrd. Mary 
Ann Eliza Merklee, Oct. 7, 1852. She was b. in Philadelphia, 
Pa., June 18, 1820, and died there Sept. 12, 1867. 

Daniel B. Beitler came to Philadelphia when a young 
man. He received a common school education in Chester 
county. His father's family was a large one and early in 
life he was compelled to assist his father in maintaining the 
family. While yet a boy he drove a six-horse team across 
the mountains to Pittsburg. 

After locating in Philadelphia he engaged in the feed 
business and then in the livery stable business. In 1860 
he had three large stables, all in the Ninth Ward. He sold 
out his stables to take charge of the hotel which his father 
had conducted for years. This was the New Market Inn on 
Market street, above 16th street, a celebrated old-fashioned 
farmers' inn, which Daniel B. Beitler continued to run until 
the time of his death. It was frequented by the farmers of 



JOHN BEITLER. 235 

Chester, Montgomery, Bucks and Delaware counties. Dur- 
ing the meetings of the Friends its capacity was taxed to 
the utmost, the inn being the headquarters of the Friends 
from the rural sections. Attached to the inn were extensive 
stables and on Market days from forty to seventy-five 
horses were accommodated. In those days the farmers 
hauled their produce to market. 

Early in life Daniel B. Beitler took a deep interest in 
politics. He was an ardent Republican. He was too old 
and not physically able to take part in the war of the 
Rebellion, but he became an active member of the Union 
League when that patriotic organization was formed, and 
gave valuable assistance in recruiting and equipping the 
various regiments sent to the front by it. His wife's sister 
was a volunteer nurse at the Cherry Street Hospital, which 
was located at Broad and Cherry streets, where wounded 
soldiers were cared for. His wife gave such assistance as 
her household duties permitted, but the resources of her 
kitchen and the services of her cooks were always at the 
command of her sister. Daniel B. Beitler was ever ready 
to assist the soldier boys, and many a large pot of coffee 
and many a ham and hundreds of loaves of bread found 
their way from his kitchen to the rendezvous of recruits in 
the neighborhood. 

On June 1, 1861, he was appointed by President Lincoln 
an inspector in the Custom Service and he filled this posi- 
tion to the time of his death, except during President John- 
son's term. He was a delegate to the National Republican 
Convention which placed General Garfield in nomination. 
He was for several terms a member of the Republican State 
Committee and for many years chairman of the Ninth Ward 
Republican Executive Committee. He was a great lover of 
sport with rod and gun and an ardent admirer of horses. 
For several years he owned the celebrated stallion " Brower 
Eclipse," whose colts were regarded as the finest in Del- 
aware and Chester counties. He always drove a pair of 
them and in the winter delighted to make trips to his 
relatives in Chester county. He drove his pair of bays and 
always took one or more of his children with him. He met 



236 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

a hearty welcome everywhere, whether he visited his rela- 
tives or those who enjoyed his hospitality at his inn. He 
died in 1881 at the age of sixty-seven years. He had never 
accumulated a fortune, but he left his children the record 
of a blameless life and no man ever speaks of Daniel B. 
Beitler but in words of praise. His heart was tender, he 
was the friend of the needy and the oppressed, he strove to 
do his duty as a father, a husband, a friend, a neighbor and 
a citizen. He was known to his friends politically and so- 
cially and to every man, woman and boy in the old Ninth 
Ward as " Uncle Dan " and this term was used as a term of 
endearment. His portrait appears in this volume. Meth.

Judge Beitler graduated from the Central High School 
of Philadelphia in July 1870, and entered the law office of C. 
Stuart Patterson. He was admitted to the bar in January 
1875. In 1877 he was appointed an assistant to the City 
Solicitor. He continued in the law department of the City 
of Philadelphia, advancing by gradual promotions until 
1888, he reached the position of first assistant to the then 
City Solicitor Charles F. Warwick, now Mayor of the 
city. He took part in many of the most important cases 
involving the city's interest during the many years he 
served as the city's counsel. On Oct. 1, 1891, he accepted 
of Mayor Edwin S. Stuart the position of Director of the 
Department of Public Safety, and he ably and acceptably 
filled this place until appointed by Governor Hastings in 
February 1896 to the vacancy in the Court of Common Pleas 
No. 1, caused by the death of Judge Allison. In the follow 
ing summer he was unanimously nominated for the full 
term of ten years by both the Democratic and Republican 
conventions and received at the polls every vote cast, the 
official count showing that he had received 228,311 votes — 
more than were cast for any of his colleagues on the ticket,

1886. He began business as a wheelwright in Howellville, 
Chester Co., in 1835, and in 1847 moved with his family to 
West Philadelphia, where he engaged in carriage and 
wagon building. To the latter branch of the business he 
gave his attention mostly and was successful in building 
up a first-class trade. In 1879 he received a bronze medal 
from the Agricultural and Industrial Society of Delaware 
county for the best specimen of a milk wagon, and another 
the same year for an express wagon from the same society. 
It 1880 he received a bronze medal from the Pennsylvania 
State Agricultural Society for a light milk wagon. He re-

Major Garner graduated from the Philadelphia High 
School in 1858, and shortly afterwards became connected 
with the dry goods commission business in that city. 

In 1862 he enlisted as a private soldier in the Fifteenth 
Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry, and served 
until the close of the war in the department of the Cumber- 
land and the military division of the Mississippi under 
Generals Rosencrans, Thomas, Grant and Sherman. The

fact that he was successively promoted to the offices of first 
sergeant, captain and major of his regiment is sufficient 
testimony as to the quality of his service to the country. 

After the close of the war he was for some two years 
engaged in commercial analysis and metallurgy in Philadel- 
phia, and in 1867 went to South America in connection with 
the gold mining operations of Venezuela in Guiana in that 
portion of the country which recently caused the territorial 
dispute between Venezuela and Great Britain, and came so 
near to involving this country in a war with the latter 
country during Mr. Cleveland's administration. In 1869 he 
returned to the United States, and in the following year 
entered the railway service in the construction of the Kan- 
sas-Pacific Railway from Carson to Denver, Colorado. He 
remained with that company until 1875, when he was ap- 
pointed general superintendent of the Missouri, Kansas & 
Texas Railway at Sedalia, Mo. In 1880 he became purchas- 
ing agent of the Denver & Rio Grande Railway at Denver, 
and retained this position until offered a position with 
Murphy & Co., varnish makers, whose services he entered 
in January 1884. With this company he is still identified, 
representing it in the membership of the New York Paint, 
Oil and Varnish Club, of which organization he has twice 
been president. In October 1897, Major Garner was elected 
president of the National Paint, Oil and Varnish Associa- 
tion, and he is one of the most highly respected and most 
popular gentlemen connected with the association. He 
is also a member of the New York Commandery Military 
Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States. Baptists.

various positions until 1860, when he became agent for a 
manufacturing firm of Philadelphia. He was in hearty 
sympathy with the Republican campaign of 1860, and cast 
his maiden presidential vote for Abraham Lincoln. After 
the election in November he traveled westward and south-

ward on business, stopping at the principal cities on the 
Ohio and Mississippi rivers until he reached New Orleans, 
in which city he was prosecuting his business when the war 
of the Rebellion broke out in 1861. Believing it would be 
profitable for him to remain he continued there in business 
until by force of circumstances he was compelled to enlist 
in the Louisiana State militia for three months service in 
the borders of the State, at the termination of which he 
expected to resume business. In this, however, he was 
disappointed, for at the end of their enlistment the militia- 
men were transferred, " nolens volens," into the regular 
Confederate army and pushed to the front in time to par- 
ticipate in the battle of Corinth or Pittsburg Landing. 
After this battle he was changed to the trans-Mississippi 
department and to the artillery service, where he took part 
in all the battles of the famous Red River and other cam- 
paigns under the rebel General Zachary Taylor. The close 
of the war found him very much broken in health. He 
resumed business in New Orleans, but in 1868 he was com- 
pelled by severe hemorrhages of his lungs to quit business 
and hasten north. Upon reaching Philadelphia his health 
rallied. He became associated with his father in the wagon 
business and continued until 1876, when with broken health 
he was ordered by his physician to Florida, where in a few 
weeks he died, on March 14, in the town of Palatka. His 
remains were brought home and interred in the family plot 
at Mount Moriah cemetery. At the time of his death he was 
a member of Mantua Baptist church of West Philadelphia. 
V. — 3. Rev. Harrison Brower Garner, b. in Howellville, 
Tredyffrin Twp., Chester Co., Pa., Sept. 16, 1840. He re- 
ceived his early education in the public schools of Philadel-

dry goods establishment of L. J. Levy & Co., at that time 
the largest and most fashionable store in the city. In 1858 
he was converted and united with the First Baptist church, 
(West) Philadelphia, now the Epiphany. In the fall of 1859 
he went to Lewisburg, Pa., to enter upon a course of study 
preparatory to entering the ministery. He was graduated 
in 1865 from the University at Lewisburg, now the Bucknell

University, and received the degre of "A. B." In 1867 he 
completed a course in theology at the same institution, and 
also received the degree of 'A. M." from the college. Dur- 
ing his course of studies, which was contemporary with the 
Civil war, from 1861 to 1865, he responded twice to the call 
of the President for emergency troops, and enlisted first in 
September 1862 in a regiment of militia raised in Philadel- 
phia for service during the Antietam campaign. The regi- 
ment was sent to Wilmington, Delaware, and guarded 
Dupont's powder mill until after the battle, when the troops 
were returned and the regiment disbanded. Again in June 
1863, at the call of the President for troops during the Get- 
tysburg campaign, in company with the students at Lewis- 
burg, who volunteered as a body and were organized at 
Harrisburg, Pa., into Co. A, 28th Regt., Pennsylvania militia. 
Col. James Chamberlain in command, and were duly sworn 
into the United States service during the emergency. From 
this service he received an honorable discharge, dated July 
27, 1863, at Harrisburg, Pa. Aug. 2, 1864, he was appointed 
a delegate of the United States Christian Commission and 
was sent to the hospitals at Fort Monroe and City Point, 
Va., where for six weeks he did duty ministering to the sick 
and wounded soldiers. In September 1867 he was ordained 
to the gospel ministry and became pastor of the First Bap- 
tist church of Honesdale, Wayne Co., Pa. On Sept. 1, 1871, 
he resigned the pastorate of the church and entered upon 
missionary work in the county for the Wayne Baptist Asso- 
ciation. This relation was terminated Aug. 1, 1872. He 
then became associated with the firm of Smith, English & 
Co., theological book publishers, at 710 Arch street, Phila- 
delphia. He remained here until Aug. 1, 1878, when he 
accepted the call to the Calvary Baptist church of Hope- 
well, New Jersey. He resigned this connection in Septem- 
ber 1882 to assume charge of the theological publishing 
and book business at 710 Arch St., Philadelphia. The busi- 
ness was closed out in November 1886, when he was called 
to the pastorate of the Great Valley Baptist church, Chester 
Co., Pa. He entered upon his duties Jan. 1, 1887, and served 
the church until Apr. 1, 1893. For the three following 

17

months he represented the Pennsylvania Baptist Educa- 
tional Society among the churches in the northeastern part 
of the State. On Oct. 1, 1893, he became identified with the 
mission enterprise of the Memorial Baptist church of Phila- 
delphia. The mission was located at 18th and York streets 
and is now the Bethlehem Baptist church. He labored with 
this interest until Dec. 1, 1895, when he was called to the 
pastorate of the First Baptist church, Downingtown, Pa., 
which relation he continued to hold until April 1, 1900, 
when he retired from the pastorate, and was appointed 
field secretary of the society for providing religious litera- 
ture for the blind, headquarters in Philadelphia. He re- 
signed his connection with this society on April 1, 1902, 
and became pastor of the Cold Point Baptist church of 
Montgomery Co., Pa., which relation continues to the pres- 
ent time. Mr. Garner was married on Mar. 12, 1868, to Miss 
Annie L. Evans, daughter of David and Mary Rowland 
Evans, formerly of New Britain, Bucks Co., Pa., then of 
Lewisburg, Pa. Miss Evans was born at New Britain on

V. — 4. Mary Frances Garner, b. Jan. 17, 1842; d. Nov.

Philadelphia in 1858 and received appointment as a teacher 
in the fall of the same year. In 1859 she became an 
assistant teacher in the Newton Girls' Grammar School and 
continued there until 1869, when she resigned to assume 
the principalship of the Belmont Girls' Grammar School, 
which was just organized. Early in 1873 she resigned her 
position to assume duties at home. At this time, under date 
of Feb. 24, 1873, she received from the school board of the 
24th section of Philadelphia the following testimonial: 

" Whereas, Miss Mary F. Garner, principal of the Bel- 
mont Girls' Grammar School, is about to retire from the 
position she has so ably filled for the last four years, and as 
we feel we cannot part from her without acknowledging 
in the highest terms our appreciation of her labors among 
us; therefore, be it 

" Resolved, That the thanks of the board are due and 
are hereby tendered to Miss Mary F. Garner for the able 
and efficient manner in which she has conducted and ad- 
vanced the interests of the Belmont Grammar School from 
its opening to the present time. 

" That in our judgment it is to her energy and zealous 
discharge of duty that said school owes its present high 
position in the estimation of the board of public education 
and the citizens of this section. 

" That we extend to her the acknowledgment of our 
appreciation of her abilities as a teacher and her character 
as a lady ; and that we sincerely hope that her future career 
may be as prosperous and happy as her past has been use- 
ful and successful." 

Miss Garner was reappointed to this position in 1875 
and continued a most important factor in the further 
development of the usefulness of the school until in 1883, 
when she resigned to take charge of the Levering Con- 



244 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

solidated Grammar School of Roxborough, Philadelphia. In 
closing her duties at this time she received the following 
token of esteem from the board of directors: 

" At a meeting of the board of directors of the 24th 
section held June 25, 1883, the following preamble and 
resolutions were unanimously adopted: 

" Whereas, Miss Mary F. Garner has resigned the prin- 
cipalship of the Belmont Grammar School for Girls to as- 
sume the duties of principal of the Levering Consolidated 
School, 21st section; therefore, be it 

" Resolved, That it is with deep and sincere regret that 
we accept her resignation, and that in parting with her we 
lose a lady of refinement and culture, eminently fitted for 
the elevated position she has held for so many years. 

" Resolved, That we feel that she has been faithful in 
the discharge of the many and arduous duties committed 
to her care, and that our best wishes accompany her in her 
new field of labor. 

"Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be tendered 
her as an expression of our appreciation of her ability and 
valuable services." 

Miss Garner entered upon her new position with 
marked zeal and energy and was most successful in raising 
the standard of the school and in promoting its efficiency 
and usefulness. 

In the spring of 1886 she passed a successful examina- 
tion for a supervising principalship, but her state of health 
prevented her from accepting a position. 

On October 1st of the same year, owing to marked in- 
dications of failing health, she was compelled to resign 
from her school duties at Roxborough, very much to the 
regret of her associates and the board of directors. She 
immediately repaired to Colorado Springs, Colorado, where 
for three years she sought to recuperate her declining 
energies. In the summer of 1889 she returned to Philadel- 
phia, where the struggle for life continued until Nov. 10, 
1892, when she received her promotion to the Higher School 
beyond.

She became a member of the First Baptist church of 
West Philadelphia (now the Epiphany) in 1859, under the 
ministry of the Rev. J. Harvard Castle, D. D. For a num- 
ber of years she was active as a Sunday school teacher, in 
which sphere she labored with characteristic zeal and 
devotion. In the year 1875 she united with the Mantua 
Baptist church, the Rev. J. G. Walker, D. D., pastor, and in 
1883 was made associate superintendent of the Sunday 
school. At the time of her death she was an esteemed 
member of the Roxborough Baptist church, of which the 
Rev. J. E. Wilmarth, D. D., was pastor. This sketch gives 
an adequate estimate of this noble Christian character, 
which for more than twenty-five years made its impress for 
good upon the lives of scores and hundreds of the youths 
of Philadelphia, who came under her instruction and her 
example. S.

Grover Furey, June 2, 1859. She was b. in Ireland, Apr. 
24, 1834. 

David Beitler moved to Philadelphia when a young 
man. He was a man of fine physique, of very pleasant man- 
ners and of more than ordinary capacity. On the 4th of 
May, 1858, he was elected an alderman in the Ninth Ward. 
The next month he was appointed committing magistrate 
at the Central station by Mayor Henry. He was continued 
in that position under Mayor Henry and under Mayor 
McMichael until the expiration of the latter's term in 1869. 
Mayor Fox, a Democrat, then came into office. Alderman 
Beitler was a Republican of exceedingly strong political 
bias and while he never allowed politics to control the dis- 
charge of his official duties he refused to serve under a 
Democratic mayor. In 1872 William S. Stokley was elected 
on the Republican ticket and he at once reappointed Alder- 
man Beitler as committing magistrate. The committing 
magistrate is the representative of the mayor in the dis- 
charge of judicial duty at the Central police court. His 
duties are onerous and responsible. Alderman Beitler waf 
recognized as one of the best committing magistrates PhiH- 
delphia ever had. He served under every Republican major 
from the time of his election as alderman in 1858 until ;he 
time of his death. He died in commission, having teen 
elected and re-elected by the people of his ward con- 
tinuously from 1858 to 1875. He was elected, too, in a ward 
in which the political parties were very evening dvided, 
but his vote was always far in excess of that of hi? ticket. 
His judgment was so good and his knowledge of tb? law so 
much respected and valued that the leading lawyers in the 
city took to his court their important cases. 

He was a member of the Union League, hfVing joined 
that patriotic organization at its foundation. He was a 
father kind and indulgent, as a friend steadftst, generous 
and true, and as an official fearless, intelligert and upright. 
He died beloved by his family ad friends aid respected by

Apr. 3, 1895. 

Eleanor Beitler Lewis was the belle of the neighbor- 
hood, and at the time of her marriage her father presented 
her with $1,000 and a chaise. The following was published 
in the West Chester newspaper, Apr. 1841: "Died in East 
Nantmeal, on the evening of the 26th ult., Eleanor, consort 
of Jesse E. Philips, in the twenty-sixth year of her age." 
"In recurring to the death of this amiable and interesting 
young woman, the mind is burdened with more than an 
ordinary degree of sorrow. To look at the transition we are 
about to record, strongly admonishes us that she was but 
mortal, the inhabitant of sublunary tenement, hastily va- 
cated and abandoned to the consuming caprice of progress- 
ive time. But while we are conscious she was but a 
creature of the dust, the responsible sphere she seemed 
called to occupy in life gave a delusive promise that she 
would long be permitted to remain an inmate of the earthly 
tabernacle. The mother of two children, the elder just ap- 
proaching that age in life when the maternal precepts and 
example point with a vivid and enduring effect to the future 
destiny of the child, the other but an infant, requiring all 
the solicitude and tenderness of an anxious mother to 
nourish and rescue from the paralyzing hand of disease. 
While she will be greatly lamented because of the helpless 
situation of her babes, her loss will be felt by the rising 
and adult world, for that modest benignity that character- 
ized her whole life. To her afflicted companion her demise 
was a source of unmitigated sorrow, which nevertheless 



254 THE BBIDLER HISTORY. 

was submitted to with decent forbearance and pious resig- 
nation. To her various relations and acquaintances at large 
her transmutation will be sensibly felt and painfully ap- 
preciated. But while the soul is in anguish for the loss 
of our valued friend, it might be profitable to remember 
that the decree was conceived by Infinite Wisdom and 
executed by the arm of Omnipotence, and that the hand 
that was never slow to administer at the shrine of hu- 
manity, has ceased to perform its errand of mercy only 
that the spirit that prompted it might hasten to a full 
fruition of that celestial joy that a perfect faith in the 
saving power of a crucified Redeemer and a devout and 
Christian life, had ensured for her a ' joy unspeakable and 
full of glory'." 

She was reconciled to God through Jesus Christ and 
had a blessed hope of an acceptance in heaven. Her last 
words were: "Sweet Jesus! Dear Lord, take me home 
quick! " 

Jesse Evans Philips was treasurer of Chester Co., Pa., 
in 1874. He was proprietor and conductor of Fremont 
Academy at his home in East Nantmeal from 1847 to 1858. 
He was also a surveyor and employed by the government to 
do such work in the South. Was one of the three Philips 
brothers who have for upwards of fifty years officiated con- 
secutively as clerks for East Nantmeal Baptist Church. He 
was also a justice of the peace in East Nantmeal. 

He was a lineal descendant of Joseph Philips, born in 
Wales in 1716 at Pembrokeshire. In 1755 he sailed for 
America from the seaport town of Pembroke, accompanied 
by his wife, Mary, b. 1710, and their three sons, David, John 
and Josiah. The youngest son, Joseph, was born in this 
country. At the time of the Revolution these four sons 
took the side of the Colonies and commanded the 7th bat- 
talion, 2d company, Chester county militia, as follows: 
Captain, David Philips; first lieutenant, John Philips; 
second lieutenant, Josiah Philips; ensign, Joseph Philips. 
Commissioned May 5, 1777.

Pembroke, Wales. Rev. Owen Thomas came to America 
and was the fourth pastor of the Welsh Tract in New 
Castle Co. He removed to Vincent in May 1748, and died 
there in 1760. He had two sons, one of whom, David (the 
father of Sarah), was a captain in the French and Indian 
war. The marble slab over the remains of Rev. Owen 
Thomas in the Vincent burial-ground contains the following 
inscription: 

" Here lies the body of the Rev. Owen Thomas, who 
departed this life Nov. 12, 1760, in the 69th year of his age. 

" In yonder house I spent my breath, 
"And now lie slumbering here in death;

of England, both coming to America in their youth and 
residing since in Philadelphia.

1863; d. Jan. 14, 1899. Her funeral was largely attended, 
as she was well and very favorably known, having taught 
school for a number of years. The floral tributes were 
very large and handsome. The principal piece was a de- 
sign, " Gates Ajar," presented by the pupils of Montrose 
Sunday School, of which she was the mainstay. As she 
was very active in Sunday school work, her loss will be 
deeply felt by the scholars. Funeral services were con- 
ducted by Rev. R. C. Wood, assisted by Rev. H. B. Garner 
and Rev. Mr. Keelor. Meth. Ep.

(born about 1750, died 1781) and Annie Lederach. 

II. — 6. Jacob Beidler, b. about 1750; d. 1781; mrd. 
Annie Lederach. 

Jacob Beidler was a farmer and lived in Hilltown Twp., 
Bucks Co., Pa., about a mile west of Dublin, on the farm 
now owned and occupied by Abraham C. Moyer. A part of 
the old homestead, on which is now a saw and chopping 
mill, is owned by Jacob B. Rosenberger of Dublin. The 
farm owned by Jacob Beidler contained 97 acres and 155 
perches. The old house stood in the meadow, a little below 
the site of the present dwelling. 

Jacob Beidler died before his children were grown up, 
and in his will appointed Henry Overholtzer and Henry 
Rickert as guardians of his children. He directed in his 
will that his children should be sent to school and well 
educated, and his sons when they arrive at proper age be 
"put to trades." He and wife were members of the Menno- 
nite church at Blooming Glen, and are buried there. He 
made his will in writing, Oct. 5, 1780, which was probated 
Mar. 26, 1781. His will reads as follows, viz.: 

In the name of God, Amen. I, Jacob Beitler, of the 
Township of Hilltown, in the County of Bucks, Yeoman, 
being weak of Body, but of sound Mind and Memory, Do 
this fifth Day, October, in the year of our Lord one thousand 
seven hundred and eighty, make and publish this my Last 
Will and Testament in Manner and Form following (that is 
to say) : Imprimis, I commend my Soul into the Hands of 
Almighty God who gave it me, and my Body to the Earth 
from whence it came, in Hope of a joyful Resurrection 
through the Merrits of my Saviour Jesus Christ; And as for 



288 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

the worldly Estate wherewith it has pleased God to bless

with all the linnen in it, and all the Wares on the kitchen 
Shelves, one Iron Pot and one Milch Cow to chuse which 
she pleases, and of my Wheat and Rye and so much as will 
be sufficient for Bread for her for one year; Item — It is my 
Will that my Executors hereinafter named shall as soon as 
conveniently may be after my Decease sell all the Re- 
mainder of my Goods and Chattels, and pay my Debts, and 
one-third Part of the remaining Money unto my Wife, Anne 
Beidler; Item — I do hereby order my hereinafter named 
Executors or the Survivers of them to grant, bargain and 
sell my Tract of land situated in the township of Hilltown 
aforesaid, containing ninety-seven Acres and one hundred 
and fifty-five Perches, which said Tract of Land I have 
purchased of Jacob Kolb and Henry Rickert and paid the 
whole of the purchase Money unto them, but have not 
received an actual Conveyance from them for the same. 
Therefore it is my Will and I do hereby give full Power and 
Authority unto the said Jacob Kolb and Henry Rickert to 
make and execute a lawful and sufficient Deed, Title or 
Conveyance to the Purchaser of the same in Fee simple. 
And the Money arising from the Sale thereof I dispose 
thereof as follows, viz.: the Sum of one "hundred Pounds 
thereof I give to my Wife, Anne Beidler. And the Re- 
mainder thereof and the remaining two Thirds of the Money 
from my personal Estate I give and order to be equally 
divided to my Sons Henry and Jacob and my Daughter 
Anne, share and share alike. And farther it is my Will that 
my Children shall be sent to School and well educated, 
and my sons I order when they respectively come to proper 
ages shall be put to Trades. And I do hereby nominate and 
appoint my Friends, Henry Overholtzer and Henry Rickert, 
to be Executors of this my Last Will and Testament and 
Guardians of my Children until they respectively come to 
their lawful ages. Item — It is my Will that if any of my 
Children should happen to die under lawful ages, leaving no

IV. — 1. Henry Beidler, b. in Bucks Co., Pa., Nov. 27, 
1812; d. Mar. 16, 1893, aged eighty years, three months, 
nineteen days. Mrd. Sarah Sammons, Apr. 23, 1860. She 
was b. at Geddes, N. Y., Nov. 29, 1831; d. Oct. 2, 1886, aged 
fifty-four years, ten months, four days. Henry Beidler 
passed his boyhood and early manhood on the farm, re- 
ceiving a good common school education ana laying the 
foundation of his financial success. It was here that he 
earned his first thousand dollars, a fact to which he pointed 
with pardonable pride. In the spring of 1843, attracted by 
the superior inducements offered in the West to young 
men of enterprise and thrift, he removed to the then 
sparsely settled State of Illinois, and located at Springfield 
in the grocery trade. After five years of success in this 
business, he, in 1848, removed to Chicago, and engaged in 
the lumber business in partnership with his brother, Jacob 
Beidler, who was then in business there. In 1855 Mr. 
Beidler went to Muskegon, Mich., and took charge of the 
manufacturing branch of the business there, his brother 
continuing in charge of the Chicago branch. The business 
rapidly increased, and, under his careful management, 
brought to its promoters large returns, so that in 1876 the 
subject of this sketch was enabled to retire from active 
participation in the business, with an ample competence. 
At that time he returned to Chicago, where he made his 
residence permanent, and retained an interest in the busi- 
ness for several years, when the firm was dissolved by 
mutual consent.

306 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

After retiring from active business, Mr. Beidler spent 
much of his time in travel throughout all parts of his 
native land, and also visited some foreign lands. During 
his travels he collected a great variety of curiosities, con- 
sisting of rare shells, precious stones, etc., which he 
preserved in a handsome cabinet at his home. Throughout 
his life Mr. Beidler was known for his business in- 
tegrity and firm adherence to the strict principles of justice 
and equity, so that wherever known, his word was regarded 
as good as his bond. He was a man of generous impulses, 
cheerful, genial, benevolent and charitable. 

His political sentiments were Republican, though he 
never took any part in political matters, more than to per- 
form his duties as a citizen. Mr. Beidler held broad and 
liberal views on religious questions, and, with his family, 
was identified with the "People's Church," under the 
pastoral care of H. W. Thomas, D. D. 

Mrs. Beidler was a woman of many noble qualities, a 
fond and devoted wife and mother, and by her kindness and 
goodness of heart, her charities, and purity of life, endeared 
herself to a large circle of friends. One child: 1. Herbert. 

V. — 1. Herbert Alpine Beidler, b. in Chicago, 111., Aug. 
22, 1861; mrd. Ida Louisa Merriman, Jan. 20, 1887. He 
went with his parents to Muskegon, Mich., where they 
resided until the fall of 1876, when the family returned to 
Chicago, and where he has resided ever since, until the last 
few years, which have been spent at Williams Bay, Wal- 
worth Co., Wis. Mr. Beidler was educated in the public 
schools at Muskegon, Mich., and Chicago, 111., graduating 
from the High School of Chicago. He then went to 
Greylock Institute, So. Williamstown, Mass. After that he 
finished his education at Cornell University, Ithaca, N. Y. 
He then spent about three months in travel in the West, 
going as far as the Pacific Coast. On his return from the 
West, he began work as draughtsman in a manufacturing 
concern, and finally became vice-president of the same 
company. Later this company dissolved and a new one 
was formed in the same line of business. He became 



JACOB BEIDLER, 1750—1781. 307 

president of this company, and so continued until he sold 
out in 1895, since which time he has not been in any active 
business. No children.

V. — 8. Mary Magdalena S. Beidler, b. in New Britain, 
Bucks Co., Pa., May 6, 1852; mrd. Dr. R. H. Andrews, Oct.

Dr. Reuben High Andrews, only child of Aaron and 
Barbara Andrews, was born in Hilltown Twp., Bucks Co., 
Pa., Jan. 20, 1850. His father was for some years a " boss ' : 
carpenter and later on purchased a small tract of land along 
a creek in Hilltown township, near the site of an old saw- 
mill, about a mile west of Dublin. Here he erected a dwell- 
ing and a grist mill; the family living there until the 
father died. 

After the death of his father, Reuben went to live with 
his Grandfather Andrews, in Marlborough township, Mont- 
gomery county, but in less than two years his grandfather 
also died, and his mother about this time was married again, 
to Henry S. Krout, a farmer of Bedminster Twp., Bucks Co. 
There Reuben worked on the farm, attending the district 
school during the winter months. When about eighteen 
years of age he went for a short time to a school, then 
known as the Excelsior Normal Institute, at Carversville, 
with the object of preparing for teaching. He taught his 
first term of public school at what was then known as Upper 
Sellersville School. After this he attended for a term the 
Keystone State Normal School, at Kutztown. This was 



310 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

followed by another term of teaching, this time his own 
district school in Bedminster township. About the same 
time he commenced to study medicine under the tutorship 
of the family physician, Dr. Moses Rice, of Hagersville. 
While Mr. Andrews was a substitute teacher in New Britain 
township, Dr. Rice was taken ill and died. Afterwards he 
studied with Dr. J. H. Krause, of Plumsteadville. Having 
entered the medical department of the University of Penn- 
sylvania, he graduated in the spring of 1874, and at once 
entered upon the duties of his chosen profession at Kulps- 
ville, Montgomery county, where he soon gained a liberal 
patronage. In the fall of 1875 he married Mary M., daughter 
of Nathan Beidler, of Bedminster, Bucks county. In the 
spring of 1876 he moved to Lansdale, Montgomery county, 
where he purchased a lot and erected a dwelling. While 
here engaged in the active duties of his profession, he con- 
ceived the idea of publishing a monthly medical journal, 
" The Medical Summary," the first number of which was 
issued in March 1879. In the early part of 1881 he bought 
a half interest in the local weekly newspaper, " The Lans- 
dale Reporter," and during the same year erected a building 
on Main street, as a home and office for the newspaper and 
printing establishment. 

In the spring of 1884, on account of failing health and 
rapidly increasing duties professionally and with the medi- 
cal journal, he sold his practice and dwelling to Dr. Samuel 
Seese. He at once bought a property in Philadelphia, where 
he moved and lived for a year, when he sold it and moved 
back to Lansdale, having before purchased a lot adjoining 
his former home, and on this lot he now built one of the 
finest residences in that section at the time. About the 
same time he purchased the other half interest in the 
Reporter and printing business, which business was con- 
ducted by himself for about a year, when he sold it. Shortly 
afterward he again moved to Philadelphia, where he since 
devotes almost his entire time to the medical journal, doing 
only a select practice. A few years ago he purchased No. 
2321 Park Ave., where he now resides. For the past nine 
years no edition of the Medical Summary has been less than 



JACOB BEIDLER, 1750—1781. 311 

10,000 copies. It is a national journal and circulates in 
every section of the country. 

Never seeking public office, he was, however, elected a 
member of Lansdale Borough Council for three consecutive 
terms, being chosen president of that body for two terms. 
At the time of his removal to Philadelphia he was a member 
of the School Board. Baptists. Children: 1. Lotta; 2.

Bucks Co., Pa., Dec. 20, 1815. Brought up on a farm among 
a people with whom frugality, unceasing industry and thrift 
were foundation principles, little time that could be utilized 
for working was allowed to be otherwise occupied. 

In winter the children attended the country school, 
running home quickly when the sessions ended to look after 
the animals and do the chores, but in the summer months 
there was no school. The children were then needed to 
help on the farm. At one time, the children of the neigh- 
borhood were sent to Sunday school, but the rumor that a 
Sunday school advocate was about to introduce a bill in 
the legislature to compel attendance, excited a feeling of 
opposition to Sunday schools and the children were kept 
at home, going to Mennonite meeting in the morning, but 
otherwise having no religious exercises. Few books were 
found in the home, but a newspaper came weekly, being 
taken jointly with another family in the neighborhood. 

Hospitality in certain forms was universal. Not to be 
able to furnish a bountiful meal on short notice to a 
wagonload of unexpected guests would have been a con- 
fession of incapability on the part of any housekeeper. 
With chickens in the barnyard, rows of pies in the spring- 
house or cellar, jelly and preserves in the storeroom, milk 
and eggs at their disposal, guests and hostess working 
together would soon provide a feast. Even to peddlers and 
tramps the region was known as a section where they 
would be well housed and well fed. 

As the father was farmer, carpenter, cabinetmaker, 
legal adviser for neighbors and, on a small scale, capitalist, 
there could easily be found enough work to keep the chil- 
dren of the family busy. That each boy should be given a 
trade was a principle of the fathers, and Jacob Beidler 
learned to be a carpenter. The story of a good sized farm 
house built by him and his cousin, hewed from the trees, 
painted and made complete for $115 and board, was one of 
the favorite tales, in later years, of the builder. 

One winter, after having worked during the summer 
months, feeling the need of more education, he entered a 



314 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

boarding school, but the sudden change from active outdoor 
life to quiet indoor occupation did not agree with him and 
he had to leave school, to be doctored at home. 

The stories of the great West, however, penetrated 
into this secluded place and Jacob Beidler decided in 1842 
to try his fortune in a new country. Going to Pittsburg he 
took the boat down the Ohio river to Cairo. From there he 
went to St. Louis and on to Springfield, 111. 

With rigid ideas of morality, fixed habits of calculating 
frugality, accustomed to hard work and application to tasks 
on hand, this tall, bony, rosy cheeked young countryman 
started out to see if his dream of worldly success — to be 
some time worth $20,000 — could be made real to him in this 
Western State. He felt that he was ignorant, felt that 
strangers would think him unsophisticated, but the 
strenuous life which was the common lot of all his asso- 
ciates had prepared him to maintain his own, even though 
he should be the subject of comment and laughter. 

In Springfield he at first worked at his trade and then 
embarked in the grocery business. In the spring of 1844 he 
went East, and was married, April 22, to Miss Mary Ann 
Funk. She was the daughter of Jacob and Margaret Halde- 
man Funk and was born in Hilltown Twp., Bucks Co., Pa., 
Oct. 5, 1821. When about seven years of age she and her 
younger sister Catharine were left motherless. Later the 
father married again and a family of little children came 
to fill the home. In helping to care for them she had much 
to do. At that time a short period of schooling was thought 
to be sufficient for a girl. Only reading, writing, arithmetic 
and sewing were taught. Domestic science, though not 
bearing then so pretentious a name, knitting and spinning 
were taught and practiced at home. This young wife was 
well fitted to bear her share in the work of the home and 
returned with her husband to begin her married life among 
strangers in Springfield, 111. But within a few months the 
desire of her husband to go to Chicago had settled into a 
determination, and in the fall of 1844, after packing their 
personal possessions, including the household linen, of 
which every well-endowed Bucks county maiden had a 



JACOB BEIDLER, 1750—1781. 315 

goodly store, the young couple started on the trying trip 
from Springfield to Chicago. A rainy season had made the 
roads so bad that again and again the team had to be 
extricated from the mud and the wife was in despair lest 
the new venture would be ended by death on the prairies. 
But after days of discouragement the city of Chicago was 
reached, and Jacob Beidler found employment as a car- 
penter, working for Van Osdel Bros. & Thorp. A little 
home was established, where the hard working, careful 
housewife early and late worked and planned to make every 
dollar that came in, go as far as possible in providing for 
present absolute necessities and in savings for future needs 
or capital. The little fortune that she had brought with 
her, as well as the capital that her husband had, were not 
any too well invested, but to have encroached on either for 
daily living would have been contrary to all rules and 
habits, so labor and privation continued. Sickness and the 
loss of two children as tiny infants told on the hopefulness 
of the mother, but the restless energy of Jacob Beidler was 
ever looking out for opportunities of bettering his fortune. 
In 1845 a little carpenter shop was established in con- 
nection with James McGee, under the firm name of Beidler 
& McGee. In 1846 Mr. Beidler bought out his partner and 
in 1847 opened a lumber yard at the northeast corner of 
West Water and Randolph streets. In 1848 he was joined 
by his brother Henry from Springfield, 111., and in 1850 the 
shop connected with the lumber yard was sold out to 
James Lyon. 

In 1854 it was decided to manufacture lumber at 
Muskegon, Mich., and Mr. A. F. Hathaway was admitted to 
the firm, which became J. Beidler & Bro. & Co. Later an- 
other brother, Aaron Beidler, was admitted, the firm name 
continuing as before. In 1856 Aaron Beidler and A. F. 
Hathaway retired and M. J. Brown and R. P. Eastman were 
admitted. In 1860 they withdrew and the firm became 
J. Beidler & Bro., Chicago, 111., and J. & H. Beidler, 
Muskegon, Mich., under which name the business was con- 
ducted until 1871, when the J. Beidler & Bro. Lumber Co., 
an Illinois corporation, for the Chicago business, with Jacob 



o

Beidler president, M. F. Rittenhouse treasurer and A. F. 
Beidler secretary, and the Beidler Manufacturing Co., a 
Michigan corporation, for the Muskegon business, with 
Henry Beidler president and J. D. Follmer secretary and 
treasurer, were organized. The Beidler Manufacturing Co. 
continued in business until 1886 and the J. Beidler & Bro. 
Lumber Co. until April 1891. 

In 1861 Mr. Beidler started John F. Funk and James 
McMullen in the lumber business, under the firm name of 
McMullen, Funk & Co. This firm continued until 1866. 

In 1866 Jacob and Henry Beidler started B. L. Anderson 
in the lumber business, under the firm name of B. L. Ander- 
son & Co., and this firm was in business until May 1868. 

In 1873 the South Branch Lumber Co. of Chicago, an 
Illinois corporation, was organized, with Jacob Beidler 
president, B. F. Ferguson treasurer, and Francis Beidler 
secretary, and continued in business until May 1, 1893. 

In May 1886 the Eastern Lumber Co., an Illinois cor- 
poration, operating at Tonawanda, N. Y., was organized. 
Jacob Beidler was president until his death. 

Several Chicago business men, among whom were 
Mr. Perry Hannah, Mr. John F. Funk, Mr. B. L. Anderson, 
Mr. John Oliver, Mr. P. L. Auten and Mr. M. F. Rittenhouse, 
have commenced their business careers in the employ of 
Mr. Beidler, and in the success of these different young 
men he always took great satisfaction, although claiming 
from them no obligation except as he said, "good will which 
we owe each other." 

During these years, which, with a few exceptions, were 
prosperous financially, several changes of residence had 
been made. For a while they lived over the shop. Homes 
on South Water and North Wells streets were followed in 
1856 by one more to the outskirts of the West Side. A 
house was purchased on Morgan street near Washington 
street, and the next year a house that was very satisfactory 
to Mrs. Beidler was built next door and into this the family 
of four children was moved. In 1862 the parents and six 
children moved into the Lind house on the northeast corner 



JACOB BEIDLER, 1750—1781. 317 

of Morgan and Washington streets, where the youngest 
of the six sons was born in 1864. 

The Third Presbyterian Church was in the neighbor- 
hood of these homes, and Mr. Beidler, who had united with 
the First Presbyterian Church some years before, grew 
much interested in the Third Church. The large stone 
edifice which the society built, left it deeply in debt and 
in the struggle in which this involved them Mr. Beidler 
under the pastorate of Rev. Arthur Swazey, D. D., with 
three or four others, stood foremost in being ready to give 
time, effort and money that the work and the credit of the 
church might not suffer. He believed that the same prin- 
ciples of economy and honesty that govern creditable com- 
mercial transactions should govern the financial manage- 
ment of religious organizations. As treasurer of the 
trustees he preferred to advance from his own means the 
money needed to pay bills for running expenses rather than 
leave the bills unpaid. When the Third Church in 1877 
voted to sell the building and move further west, being 
opposed to the plan, he changed to the Eighth Presbyterian 
Church, then under the pastorate of Dr. J. M. Worrall, 
and by his efforts and gifts helped to free it from debt. He 
then directed his efforts in behalf of the Jefferson Park 
Presbyterian Church, which was nearer his home and under 
the charge of Dr. Francis L. Patton. Mr. Beidler and 
his wife were members of this church and he a trustee at 
the time of his death. He was interested in the Pres- 
byterian Hospital and a trustee of Lake Forest University, 
a chair in which he endowed. He gave his aid toward 
providing a home for the Y. M. C. A. of the West Side and 
toward the regular objects of church benevolence he was 
always a contributor. 

Though never active in politics, he entered the City 
Council at the time of the Reform Ticket in 1876 and served 
two terms. He belonged to the Republican party. 

Building was ever his hobby, and in the large buildings 
which he erected for manufacturing and warehouse pur- 
poses on West Washington boulevard, he took great pride. 

He moved in 1873 into the Gardner house on South 



318 THE BEIDLER HISTORY. 

Sangamon street. The family then consisted of six sons 
and one daughter. Marriage and death entered the circle, 
so that in March 1898, when he died, there were left in the 
home but the wife and two unmarried sons. One son — John 
— was drowned in 1881, and another son — William H. — had 
died six months before his father. The married daughter 
lived in a house built by her father on the homestead 
grounds and two married sons resided in the city. 

Though no sickness that could be called sickness 
troubled the last years of Mr. Beidler's life, he ceased 
his hold on business and an active life, and gradually 
his memory grew dim. Perhaps he himself, although never 
acknowledging the fact, was conscious of this, for he took 
less and less part in conversation, lost his former sense of 
mortification in being found asleep during the hours of the 
day, and failed to recognize many whose faces had once 
been familiar to him. 

From Thursday morning, March 10, 1898, he remained 
in bed, protesting at first against it to the nurse, who had 
been his faithful attendant for six months. Two days later 
he became unconscious and on Tuesday morning, March 15, 
1898, at about 2 o'clock, the spirit took its flight. 

On March 17th the body was laid in Rosehill Cemetery 
in the lot where already his two sons and two grandsons 
had been buried. The funeral services were conducted at 
the house by the Rev. Frank DeWitt Talmage, pastor of 
the Jefferson Park Presbyterian Church; Dr. D. C. Marquis, 
of McCormick Theological Seminary, and Rev. J. G. K. 
McClure, of Lake Forest University. 

The old home was still kept up after the death of Mr. 
Beidler, for Mrs. Beidler felt that no other house could be 
home to her and with Mr. Beidler's former nurse as com- 
panion and her two youngest sons, she lived there for 
nearly two years, reluctantly as her strength failed 
relinquishing little by little her close supervision of 
domestic matters. She never realized the wish of her later 
years to visit once again the scenes and friends of her early 
days, for the infirmities of age prevented, but in the last 
week of her life the names and incidents of long years 



JACOB BEIDLER, 1750—1781. 319 

before seemed to fill her mind. After less than a week's 
confinement to bed, during the last days of which she was 
unconscious, she passed away on Thursday, at 8 p. m., 
Jan. 25, 1900. 

The oldest of a large family of children, a young wife 
in a new country, the mother of a large family, the help- 
meet of her husband in providing for the future of those 
children, she led a busy life, full of work, care and anxiety. 
No one knows as do those children how much of her hus- 
band's financial success and home comfort were due to this 
little woman whom strangers thought so frail. Children:

CHAPTER VIM. 

Christian Beitler Branch. — Descendants of Christian Beitler 
(born 1754, died 1827) and Susanna Shelly. 

II.— 7. Christian Beitler, b. Aug. 9, 1754; d. June 25, 
1827; mrd. Susanna Shelly, daughter of Jacob Shelly. He 
was a farmer and " sawmiller," and inherited the old Beitler 
homestead in Lower Milford Twp., Bucks Co., Pa., from his 
father, where he lived and died. The homestead consisted 
of two messuages and two tracts of land in said township, 
containing fifty acres, and seventy acres and 111 perches, 
respectively, which Jacob Beitler had by articles of agree- 
ment, dated May 1, 1801, agreed to convey to his son, 
Christian Beitler, and by his will, dated May 2, 1801, 
directed his executors therein named to convey to his son 
Christian. In 1812 Christian Beitler purchased of Henry 
Shelly a tract of three acres and fifty-seven perches adjoin- 
ing. Christian Beitler died June 25, 1827, and letters of 
administration on his estate were granted July 16, 1827, to 
Henry Fretz, his son-in-law, the widow Susanna having 
renounced. 

April 28, 1828, Henry Fretz, of New Britain township, 
petitioned for inquest of the above real estate. His petition 
sets forth that Christian Beitler died intestate, survived by 
a widow and three children: Elizabeth, wife of Henry 
Fretz (the petitioner) ; Nancy, wife of Abraham Moyer, 
and Mary Beitler. 

The property, as returned by a recent survey, was 
found to contain 132 acres and 80 perches. The heirs 
neglecting to accept it at the valuation placed thereon 
($37.50 per acre), it was sold after considerable delay, in 
November 1829, to Abraham Moyer for $36.75 per acre. The 
deed therefor from Henry Fretz, administrator of Christian 
Beitler, deceased, to Abraham Moyer is dated Apr. 1, 1830,
