PREFACE. 



A short account of the Rosenberger family was 
prepared by Edward Mathews, of Lansdale, Pa., 
and published in a local paper in the beginning of 
1888. This, however, pertained to only two branches 
of the family in Hatfield. 

A more extended account was written by Mr. 
Mathews at the instigation of the publisher, I. R. 
Haldeman, himself related to the family both by 
birth and marriage, and which was published by him 
in book form in 1892. The work, however, while 
giving considerable valuable and interesting history 
of the pioneers of the family, their emigration to 
America, their settlement in Montgomery county, 
accounts of the homesteads, occupations, religion, 
and immediate descendants of these pioneers, it does 
not give a complete history of the various lines or 
branches of the families in genealogical form to the 
present generation. 

A more complete history of the family being 
desired by some of the connections arrangements were 
accordingly made to revise the work and compile a 
complete history of the family to the present date and 
generation. In the preparation of the work much 
labor and research has been required. The official 
records and registry of deeds and wills at Norristown, 
Doylestown and Philadelphia have been searched, 
various persons connected with the family by ties of 
relationship interviewed, and a large correspondence 



6 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

carried on with the entire connections in Montgomery 
and Bucks counties and elsewhere in Pennsylvania, 
the far West and Canada. 

The work will be of more or less interest to the 
public generally, but more especially to those bearing 
the name of Rosenberger and their descendants. 
The family of Rosenberger has been much extended 
in Montgomery and adjacent counties, and also in 
distant portions of the United States and Canada. In 
presenting this volume the writer has endeavored to 
give the history of the family together with other 
matter of interest to the descendants that would 
otherwise have been lost. 

The author also acknowledges himself indebted 
to the many friends for kind favors received during 
the compilation of this work in the form of data, etc. 
Among those who have furnished us with consider- 
able data, to whom we express our sincere grati- 
tude, are: David Rosenberger, of Hatfield, Pa.; 
Enos L. Rosenberger. of Hiawatha, Kan.; Henry 
H. Rosenberger, of Quakertown, Pa.; A. A. Delp,

INTRODUCTION. 



The present age is one distinctively of research. 
There is an intellectual restlessness and curiousness 
manifested which impels to a seeking of more knowl- 
edge in all departments of human affairs. Some of 
this activity is spent for practical ends, some for ends 
not so plainly practical. The physicist and the 
chemist in their labratories make discoveries that may 
greatly affect industrial and economic problems. The 
historian, groping his way through partly mutilated 
records of the misty past, adds to the sum total of 
human knowledge, but his labors may to a very 
limited degree, if at all, affect human affairs at the 
present time. Yet the labors of the latter in bringing 
to light and putting on record what was in part or 
altogether forgotten are not without interest and 
value, although, as it may be, a value founded in 
large part on sentiment. 

Local history is receiving a large share of attention 
in our present era. It is probably this that has given 
stimulus to the compilation of family histories and 
genealogical records. By many Rosenberger descend- 
ants the appearance of a work which will give a 
wider knowledge of the different branches of the 
family to which they belong, and which will also 
serve to preserve the history of the family, will be 
hailed with delight. The writer must acknowledge 
that previous to his becoming interested in the first 
reunion of the family he knew very little of its 



8 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

history. That he does not stand alone in this lack is 
evidenced by these words from another member of the 
family coming to notice through a communication : 
' ' I should like to know something more of the 
Rosenberger family ; I know all too little of them." 
Preservation of and interest in family records 
with us, where prinogeniture and aristocracy do not 
obtain, is, no doubt, largely a matter of sentiment, 
but it is sentiment that is not to be despised. The 
matter flavors also to a large degree of duty, and, in 
this measure, it becomes an incumbency upon us. 
There are two extremes into which the human family 
may fall with respect to the attitude toward ancestry — 
the one that of veneration amounting to worship ; the 
other that of neglect amounting to dishonor. The 
Chinee is a type of the first extreme ; the American 
people, it is feared, are rapidly drifting into the 
other. As we fulfill the divine command to honor 
our parents we must needs become possessed of a 
lively interest in those who have gone before and 
through our parents have handed down to us those 
qualities which are priceless legacies. While we 
might desire a family history to contain fuller accounts 
of the characteristics, traits and deeds of our ancestors 
than this work does, we shall remember that there is 
no clue known to this desirable knowledge. It is 
gratifying, however, to have at hand a few bits of 
data which may be used as a framework upon which 
the fancy can build a structure. Among such facts 
we find that they left the mother country for the sake 
of liberty of conscience, that they helped to subdue 
the rugged wilderness of the new world, and that 
theirs was a religion that taught simplicity of life, 
consistency of deeds and profession, and peace with all 
men. Building upon these facts the imagination can- 



INTRODUCTION 9 

not go far wrong. We look back with our minds and 
eyes and see our father, the emigrant, with his 
family bidding farewell to home surroundings and 
friends and embarking for a foreign shore. We see 
him select a site for his home in the new country and 
then begin the erection of rude buildings for shelter. 
We see him pursue from day to day his primitive 
occupation, but with all finding time for higher 
duties as he ministers to the little flock entrusted to 
his care ; and along with all we conceive how he 
fervently blesses God for the priceless boon of liberty 
vouch-safed to him in this " Land of the Free." 

As we picture these scenes we are made aware 
that the lesson which these sturdy tillers of the soil, 
our forefathers, teaches us is not without grave import. 
In our time there is a tendency to measure success by 
the degree of refinement and luxury, possible of 
attainment. Of these they knew very little, but times 
have changed, and we rejoice that they have. We 
freely admit that it shows a commendable spirit to 
keep abreast of the times. It remains, however, that 
present conditions as contrasted with the past do not 
necessarily determine the comparative value of our 
lives. Personal worth is the truest crown of any life, 
whenever and under whatever condition it may be 
lived. 

A large part of this work is simply a record of 
names and to one outside of the family might appear 
uninteresting, but to members of the family it will be 
far from meaningless. Following up this record they 
will be enabled to trace out the relations of the 
various branches of the family, and they will, no 
doubt, often be surprised to find that persons with 
whom they have had a passing acquaintance are 
bound to them by ties of kinship. Most of the fuller 



io THE ROSENBERGKR HISTORY 

biographical sketches are of those still living or 
recently deceased. These will he of interest, as they 
reveal the many different walks in life chosen by the 
many descendants. In the light of the fact that at 
first only a few vocations were represented by the 
family these will have still more interest. When it is 
noted that at first the family was limited to one 
locality and now is spread over the whole extent of 
the United States and quite largely represented in 
Canada added interest will follow. But this part will 
be of still more value and interest to coming gener- 
ations, and we can do them a good service by giving 
our assistance in making and preserving these records 
and handing them over to posterity. 

To Rev. A. J. Fretz, the author, every one con- 
nected with the family owes a debt of gratitude. 
The preparation of a work of this character involves 
the expenditure of much time and labor, besides the 
accompaniment of many vexatious experiences. To 
the members of the family who have assisted in 
furnishing the necessary data and have helped in this 
and other ways in kindling an interest in the history 
of the family, especially to I. R. Haldeman, the 
publisher, who was the prime mover in securing the 
revision of the Rosenberger history, also acknowledge- 
ment is due. It is hoped that the work will be widely 
circulated and accomplish the end in view in its 

preparation.

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 con- 
nection, each generation being marked consecutively from first 
to last. The Roman numerals placed before each name are 
used to designate the generation to which they belong, as : — 
I. Henry Rosenberger (First Generation). 
II. Benjamin Rosenberger (Second Generation). 

III. Yelles Rosenberger (Third Generation ). 

IV. Benjamin Rosenberger (Fourth Generation). 
V. Elias Rosenberger (Fifth Generation), etc. 

Beginning with the first ( I ) ancestor, Henry Rosenberger, 
his children as far as known are named. Then follows Benja- 
min Rosenberger (II Generation), and his children (III Gener- 
ation) next. Yelles, probably the oldest, is followed down to 
the last of his descendants, then the second in order of birth 
of the III Generation, and so on until the end of the entire 
branch of Benjamin Rosenberger, of the II Generation, is 
reached. Then the descendants of Daniel Rosenberger, 
II Generation, is taken up and carried down in like manner 
to the last of his descendants, and so on throughout the entire 
connections. 

Where marriages occur between members of the connec- 
tion the husband carries the record. In all such cases a num- 
bered reference is placed after the name and marriage of the 
wife, as for example (See Index of References No. i). In the 
list of Index of References will be found No. i, Mary A. 
Dennstedt, married Aaron R. Bock, Page — . On the page 
given in the body of the book the family record is given. 

In the General Index will be found the names of all males 
of 18 years and ove r , and the maiden names of all females of 
1 8 years and over ; also the pages on which their family record 
is given in the body of the book. 

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

THE ROSENBERGER FAMILY OF MONT- 
GOMERY COUNTY, PA. 



The name of Rosenberger is of ancient origin in 
Germany, signifying Rosemount or Rose Castle. 
The first Rosenbergers in America probably came 
from the Palatinate, once a province of western 
Germany, bordering on the Rhine. September 20, 
1738, Hans Peter Rosenberger arrived in Philadelphia 
on a ship from Rotterdam, containing a number of 
emigrants from that country. John F. RaucheubergerK 
arrived a week later, and Erasmus Rosenberger on 
September 26, 1749. The first settler of the name of 
Rosenberger in Montgomery county was Henry 
Rosenberger, who came to the Indian Creek valley, 
in Franconia township, in 1729. In 1739 Benjamin 
Rosenberger settled in Hatfield township, where in 
that year he purchased 125 acres of land bordering the 
County Line at Line Lexington, which he held for 
five years. Daniel Rosenberger purchased another 
tract in Hatfield lying along the County Line near 
the hamlet called Hockertown in 1740. In the year 
1745 Henry Rosenberger, Jr., came in possession by 
deed of his father's plantation in Franconia township. 
John Rosenberger settled in Hatfield township and 
first bought land around where is now the borough of 
Hatfield about 1749-50. 

It is a tradition of the family that the Rosenbergers 
of Montgomery county, Pa., came from Germany, 
from a place called " Zweibrucken " (two bridges). 

13 



14 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

It is supposed that these families that settled in 
Franconia and Hatfield townships were all related, 
and while it is certain that Daniel and John were 
brothers, it is quite evident that the four above 
mentioned were all brothers and sons of Henry 
Roseiiberger, Sr. John Shutt Rosenberger, a great- 
great-grandson of Benjamin Rosenberger, previous to 
his death is said to have related that one of his 
ancestors reached the great age of 96 years. It is not 
now certain which one of his ancestors he named as 
having reached that age. He also said that one of 
his ancestors was born on board ship or soon after 
the landing in America. It is quite certain that 
neither Benjamin or his eldest son, Yelles, reached 
the age of 96 years, therefore it must have been 
Benjamin's father, the emigrant, who was 96 years 
old at his death. This would also indicate that 
Benjamin was the son of a pioneer. It is quite likely 
that Henry Rosenberger, Sr. , the pioneer, lived to be 
96 years old, but it is not clear that any of the 
ancestors were born on the voyage over. Benjamin, 
who no doubt was the eldest, was in all probability 
born in Germany, and was a lad of from 11 to 15 
years old when he came with his father to America. 
He was born as early as about 17 14 and died about 
1777, aged 63 years or more. His eldest son, Yelles, 
was born before 1735 and died 1808, aged 73 or more. 
The time of the emigration of Henry Rosenberger, Sr. , 
is not known, but was in all probability between the 
years of 1720 and 1729. The descendants of Benjamin 
are now largely settled in Bucks county, Pa., and a 
considerable number also reside in Waterloo county, 
Ontario, Can. 

All the earlier members of these families belonged 



ROSENBERGERS OF MONTGOMERY 15 

to the religious sect called Mennonites and worshipped 
at Franconia and Line Lexington meetinghouses. 

Since writing the above we have received a com- 
munication from Dr. M. Elizabeth Rosenberg, of 
Omaha, Neb., which may throw some light on the 
early history of the Rosenberger family in Europe. 
The letter reads as follows : 

Omaha, Neb., Sept. 19, 1899. 
Rev. A. J. Fretz, 

Dear Sir : — Forgive me for plunging right into the subject. 
My time is limited, the story is a long one, the pater's mind 
is not so strong as it used to be. I have obtained my side of 
the tree by devious ways. 

First, I will tell the story as I think it is ; then I will give 
you proofs as near as I can. 

I think we must start with Bohemia in Austria. A family 
of Rosenberg lived northwest of Vienna on a large estate. 
History mixes them up with the Hohenzollern family and the 
religious wars of Austria. Between 1611 and 1660 they were 
driven out to Switzerland, Holland, England, and lastly they 
took ship with William Penn. There must have been a father 
and nine sons. The pater (my father) is the eighth genera- 
tion from the one coming on the ship. 

Proof I. I have heard my father say (when I was small ) 
" my father was of a princely family. There was Von to the 
name ; but he, the original Von Rosenberg, had to drop it 
because no Von could travel without a permit from his king." 

Proof II. A Rosenberg living near Washingtonville, O., 
sent for father about the year 185 1 to see what their relation- 
ship might be, and this cousin said that they (he and my 
father) were the eighth generation, that the original emigrant 
was a man with nine sons, that one son went to Virginia and 
that he was from that branch. 

Proof III. My father often heard his father tell that his 
ancestors were driven out by religious persecution, that they 
hid in Switzerland in caves, thence fled to Holland and Eng- 
land, that the name was changed during the flight, and the 
Von never resumed, that a fierce battle was fought before 
their flight. 

Proof IV. There was an article in the "Boston Monthly 



16 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

Scientific " on farming from a traveler in Austria describing 
the Schwartzenberger estate. These obtained the estate after 
the flight of the Rosenberg family. Wintergan is the central 
village. The fish pond still retains its original name, Rosen- 
berg "Teuch." I do not know the date of the article. We 
and Uncle Dave Rosenberg, of Bettsville, O., have copies of it. 
The estate consists of 99 villages and 30,000 people, and about 
75,000 acres under the control of this Prince. 

Very respectfully, M. E. Rosenberg. 

The article above referred to and furnished by 
Miss Rosenberg reads as follows : 

A PRINCELY ESTATE. 

The domain of the Schwartzenbergs' estate consists of 
99 cities and villages and 30,000 people on one farm. The 
extensive and interesting collection of products of the famous 
estate of the Prince John Adolph Von Schwartzenberg's 
pavillion in the National Exposition has led to a general 
desire among those interested in agriculture to see for them- 
selves the rich fields and perfect appointed farm establishment 
that has brought forth such a wealth of various products. 
Consequently the second excursion of a committee or jury that 
visited the farm estate yesterday was a very popular one. The 
excursionists counted to be 150 persons, and they took for 
themselves a special train at 6 a. m. In four hours' ride we 
landed there through hills and rich plains of Bohemia. The 
views, landscapes and sceneries before our sight while enroute 
was interesting and instructive. The Schwartzenbergs' domain 
lieth towards the northwest from Vienna in the direction of 
the Prague, and comprises about 75,000 acres, of which about 
40,000 acres is woodland and 20,000 acres are under cultivation, 
while 14,000 acres are covered with water, lakes, etc., the 
remainder farm yards, streets, etc. This domain has been in 
the possession of the Schwartzenbergs' since A. D. 1660, hav- 
ing been formerly in the possession of the Rosenberg family. 
The domain reverted to the Crown on the death of the last one 
of the Rosenbergs', A. D. 161 r, and was presented by the 
Crown to John Adolph Schwartzenberg at the time of A. D. 
1660. The population of the domain is in the neighborhood 
of about 30,000 people, who inhabit 99 villages, of which 
Wintergan is the residence of the Prince. The details of the 



ROSENBERGERS OF MONTGOMERY 17 

direction of affairs of the domain would occupy too much 
space to be given at length. The prince is assisted by the 
hereditary Prince Adolph Joseph in the management of the 
estate and there is an army of officials from all directions of 
this domain. The entire domain, exclusive of the sugar mills, 
brings a yearly product of the value of 6,000,000 florins, or 
about 3 per cent, of the capital represented. There is hardly 
a limit to the variety of substance of food produced on the 
estate. Fish culture has been for 300 hundred years a great 
specialty. 

The Rosenberg family in the end of the fifteenth century 
stocked with fish the largest ponds for the first time. The 
large pond is still called today the Rosenberg "Teuch." 

Note. — There is no doubt that Henry Rosenberger, Sr., 
of Franconia, was the pioneer emigrant, and that he in common 
with other Mennonites fled from Germany on account of 
religious persecution. Of the earlier history of the family and 
their connection with the "princely family," the original 
spelling of the name, as suggested in the foregoing, the num- 
ber of children the pioneer had, and whether one of the sons 
emigrated to Virginia or not, we know nothing. We have 
seen Rosenberger's direct from Austria and Germany and one 
Rosenberg from Prussia. One of the former from Austria 
claimed to be of an old Austrian Rosenberger stock, and were 
Jews. The last mentioned Rosenberg, from Prussia, was also 
a Jew. Author. 



HENRY ROSENBERGER, OF FRANCONIA. 



I. Henry Rosenberger is believed to have been 
the first of the name who came to Montgomery county 
as an emigrant from Germany, and was a Menuonite. 
He purchased laud in Franconia on November 14, 
1729, of James Steele, of Philadelphia. For ^30 he 
obtained 150 acres. This was situated about two and 
one-half miles west of Souderton. It covered an area 
through which flows the Indian Creek. The greater 
part was the slope toward the northwest from the 
present Soudertou and Harleysville turnpike to that 
stream, and including the site of the Meunonite 
burying ground. Within these boundaries are now 
the farm of Jacob S. Alderfer, Schueck's mill and the 
farm of Michael Swartley. The latter is the fifth 
in descent from Henry Rosenberger and owns the 
homestead. Here down in the valley of the Indian 
Creek and on its southeast side is a stone farm house 
of unusual size. It bears the date of 1809 and the 
name of John " Schwardle " in German, who was the 
grandfather of the present owner. To the north is a 
modern barn and close to hand an older one. The 
latter is the oldest building about the premises. On 
the wooden beam over the door is inscribed the name 
of Henry Rosenberger and Barbara, his wife, with the 
date of 1755. The first barn of all, in existence 
between 1730 and 1755, stood more closely adjacent 
to the banks of the stream, which was thought handy 
to wash away the manure at a time this was thought 

18 



DESCENDANTS OF HENRY ROSENBERGER 19 

of little value. A stone springhouse stands 70 yards 
west of the house near the creek and bears the date of 
1793. For this distance the water for household 
purposes was carried for three or four generations. 
In the present garden, just west of the house, stood 
the humble log dwelling which sheltered the old 
Mennonite emigrant and his family. It was only one 
and one-half stories high and existed for 80 years. 

The bounderies of the wilderness tract purchased 
of Steele in 1729 were : " Beginning at corner in line 
of Christian Haldeman ; thence by same northeast 
100 perches to line of Francis Daniel Pastorias ; 
thence by same northwest 254 perches by marked 
trees ; thence by marked trees southeast 254 perches 
to beginning." This was part of 1000 acres which 
Penn's commissioners of property, Isaac Norris, James 
Logan and Thomas Griffith, had sold to Steele in 
1728. The deed was witnessed by James Robinson 
and Abraham Reiff. The Christian Haldeman here 
mentioned held a tract on the south side of the turn- 
pike, where is now the Jonas Moyer estate. 

In the list of taxables of Francouia in 1734 is 
found the name of Henry Roseuberger. In the old 
records Franconia is styled " The Dutch Township," 
and to the present day its population is almost wholly 
of German or Dutch origin. 

Nothing is known of the personality of Henry 
Rosenberger. He built a house and barn and cleared 
some land, enduring the hardships of a first settler. 
In the year 1745 he conveyed his plantation in Fran- 
conia to his son Henry. The bounderies of the deed 
of 1745 are copied from the first deed and Henry Funk 
and Christian Meyer, two Mennonites, were the 
witnesses. The son Henry paid his father ^200. 
It is not known what became of the father after con- 



20 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

veying his plantation to his son, but he probably 
remained with Henry. 

It is not known when Henry Rosenberger died. 
He was a Mennonite and one of the original wor- 
shippers at Franeonia, where he was also buried. 

The Franeonia Mennonite meetinghouse is one of 
the typical places of worship found in many localities 
of eastern Pennsylvania. A church was organized 
and a house of worship built here as early as 1730. 
The recent structure was succeeded by another in 
1892. Like all others of this people it is plain to 
austerity. Many horse sheds encompass it about. 
It is built upon an elevation from which a splendid 
view of hill and valley to the north and west may be 
obtained. This overlooks a densely populated farm- 
ing country, extending to the distant hills of Berks 
and the highlands beyond the Schuylkill. In the 
near view are the pleasant vales of the Indian Creek 
and the North Branch of the Perkiomen. On the 
northwest side of the meetinghouse lies the extensive 
burying ground, thickly dotted with marble tomb- 
stones, where repose the dead of many generations. 
This congregation is one of the strongest in 
number, having over 700 members. A communion 
service in the Spring brings out a very large attend- 
ance, and the services have a quaint interest for the 
stranger. The service, beginning at 8 o'clock in the 
morning, lasts over three hours. The women are 
seated within the two aisles, while the men occupy 
the side pews, their hats being hung on long rows of 
pegs over the aisles. In the rear vestibule, entered 
by a side door, is the women's room, where are hung 
their bonnets and extra clothing. The Scriptures 
are read in German and several preachers in turn 
exhort the congregation. The elements of the com- 



DESCENDANTS OF HENRY ROSENBERGER 21 

munion are handed to each member by the bishop, 
who has au assistant, meanwhile constantly exhorting. 
In time of prayer is seen a kneeling throng. The 
preacher from a hymn book reads one verse at a time 
in a sing-song tone. This is sung to an old-fashioned 
tune, sounding sweetly to the ear as it comes from the 
white-capped throng. Thus is conducted the worship 
of the followers of Menno Simons. 

We name as the children of Henry Rosenberger, 
$r. , Benjamin, Daniel, John, Henry, Jr. If there 
were daughters we have not learned of them. 



BENJAMIN ROSENBERGER, OF HATFIELD. 



II. Benjamin Rosenberger, born in Germany ; 
died during the Revolution about 1777 ; married 
Helena . She died in 1799. Benjamin Rosen- 
berger settled in Hatfield township, Montgomery 
county, Pa., where, as early as 1739, he purchased 
125 acres on the County Line, comprising the present 
Oliver G. Morris and Frick farms at Line Lexington, 
of Ebenezer Kinnersley. This property he held until 
1 744, and it is probable that he made the first improve- 
ments there. He sold it to his son John, who only 
retained possession one year. 

Benjamin Rosenberger was of a dealing, trading, 
speculative disposition, and we find him buying and 
selling various properties in different townships all 
his life. His next purchase was a tract of land of 1 12 
acres in Hatfield, lying further southwest. This was 
86 perches by 210 in dimensions. The neighboring 
landholders were James Dunn on the southeast, Jacob 
Weirmau on the southwest, John Shooter on the 
northeast, and Edward Warner on the northwest. 
This place was bought of David Thomas for ^120. 
It had belonged to a grant of 12 10 acres made to 
Jonathan Hayes in 1705, who made the first improve- 
ments. His only son, Jonathan, had two sisters, 
Elizabeth, wife of Richard Maris, and Mary, wife of 
Evan Lewis. The daughters were the heirs after the 
death of their brother. They sold to John Williams 
in 1723, who conveyed to David Thomas in 1 73 r.

DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN ROSENBERGER 23 

We next find him the owner of the late Server farm, 
just north of L,ansdale, a large part of which is now 
included in that borough. This he bought at a date 
now unknown, but which Rosenberger sold to Solomon 
Sell in 1760. It comprised 106 acres and in later 
times belonged to Edward Jenkins and his son Philip. 
A little later, before 1766, he came into possession of 
a farm in Gwynedd, near Friends' Corner, later owned 
by Jonathan Lukeus. This he sold in 1776 to 
Cadwallader Foulke. In 1772 he bought a lot in 
Upper Gwynedd, comprising 50 acres, of Jonathan 
Clayton, near the present Kneedler hotel. Probably 
this had no building on it. It was sold by his heirs 
in 1 78 1 to Jacob Heisler, the tavern keeper, for ^400. 
It is supposed that he also owned a farm in Franconia, 
as his widow Helena died in that township. In the 
old deeds of Benjamin Rosenberger he is mentioned 
as a carpenter. At one time he also owned the present 
Beaver farm, near North Wales. 

The death of Benjamin Rosenberger took place 
during the Revolution, near or in 1777, after an active 
life of over 50 years in this county. Helena, widow 
of Benjamin Rosenberger, Sr.died in Franconia during 
the Summer of 1799. In her will mention is made of 
her grandchild Helena, wife of Michael Wireman, 
and great-grandchild, Anna Weirman. From her 
daughter Elizabeth, who married John Alderfer, have 
sprung many descendants in Lower Salford. The 
surviving children of Benjamin Rosenberger were five 
in number, viz: Elias (or Yellis), John, Gertrude, 
Elizabeth, Henry.

BENJAMIN ROSENBERGER, SR. 



III. Yellis Rosenberger, born at Hatfield, Mont- 
gomery county, Pa., before 1735 ; died near Perkasie 
or Sellersville, in Rockhill township, Bucks county, 
in the early Fall of 1808. His will was registered 
October 3 of that year. In this he bequeathed to 
his son Benjamin the " plantation where I now live " 
containing 130 acres, then bounded by lands of 
Andrew Schlichter and Abraham Stroud. He also 
owned fourteen acres of woodland. His daughter 
Ann received ^1000 and the other daughter, Rebecca, 
a farm in Springfield, where John Bissey lived. The 
son Henry had already received his portion. Yellis, 
or Julius Rosenberger, as he is often called in the old 
deeds, inherited the trading, money-making dis- 
position of his father, and the records of Bucks county 
show that he bought and sold many different properties 
in that county. In 1760 he bought of Henry Funk a 
plantation in Hilltown of 166 acres for ,£400, which 
he sold in 1765. Before 1773 he lived in Springfield, 
on the Saucou line, a portion of his farm being in 
Northampton county. In that year he bought a farm 
in Bedminster.on the Hilltown border, of George Roth- 
rock. In 1774 a farm of 106 acres was bought of 
Valentine Kramer, in Hilltown. In 1795 he bought 
70 acres in Rockhill of Christian Dotterer, which just 
before his death, in 1808, he sold to his son Henry. 

He had also acquired a farm of 130 acres in that 
township.

The Springfield farm was inherited by his son 
Benjamin, as well as the one in Rockhill. There is a 
tradition concerning a large tract of land in Rockhill, 
which, in those days, was held by non-resident owners. 
It comprised, along with arable land, much of the 
Rockhills. Several squatters had settled on this land, 
among whom was a Rosenberger. They were ordered 
to vacate, but refused, and were only dispossessed by 
a Sheriff's posse. The latter came "with a band of 
soldiers," as the story goes, in the absence of Rosen- 
berger. The women folks at home were very belliger- 
ent and prepared to scald the intruders. The Sheriff 
finally broke down the door and got possession. The 
writer has no dates as to the time of this transaction 
or which family were engaged. The children of 
Yellis Rosenberger were Benjamin, Henry, Anna, 
Rebecca. 

IV. Benjamin Rosenberger, born probably in Hatfield 
about 1758 ; died in 1824 ; married Margaret Nash. 
He lived in Saucon in his early youth, and before his 
majority was teamster in the American army of the 
Revolution. The latter part of his life he lived in 
Rockhill, Bucks county. He also owned a grist, 
saw and oil mills in Haycock and 27 acres of land. 
He reached the age of 66, his will being registered 
April 24, 1824. In this document mention is made of 
his children, as follows : Elias, Abraham, William, 
John, Jacob, Joseph, Benjamin, Elizabeth, Rachel, 
Margaret.

he learned the carpenter trade with Benjamin F 
Frederick, of Lansdale. About 26 years ago he 
entered the employ of Heebner & Sons in the wood- 
work department, which position he retained for 
years. Later he was promoted to the position of 
superintendent of the works, which he resigned to 
engage in the coal and feed business in partnership 
with Amos Rosenberger. Three years later he re- 
entered the employ of Heebner & Sons as a salesman, 
which position he retained up to the time of his 
death, and was a valued and trusted employe. Dur- 
ing his many years residence in Lansdale he won and 
retained the highest esteem of his fellow-citizens. 
He was a member of the Borough Council for several 
years, retiring in the Spring of 1896. He was re- 
elected to that office at the Spring election of 1899 by 
a handsome vote. He was also a director of the 
North Penn Building and Loan Association. C :

VI. John Shutt Rosenberger, b at Trappe, Montg co,

Adeline Williams August 25, 1853. 'She was born at 
Brier Creek, near Mauch Chunk, Pa, Jan 7, 1839. 

When a young man he learned the cabiuetmak- 
ing trade, and is said to have been one of the best. 
He enlisted in the Rebellion September r, 1864, in 
Philadelphia, in the 203rd Regiment, Company D, 
Pennsylvania, and was a volunteer in the 10th corps. 
He was in the war about one year, when it broke up. 
He was on detached services at Corps' Headquarters. 
His duties were to build and to level off the ground 
around the officers tents, and for this work he had as 
many as 300 negroes in his employ. At the second 
battle of Chapman's farm, the Rebels discovering 
General Birney and staff, began firing in that direction, 
the bullets coming thick and fast about where Mr 
Rosenberger was standing, causing him to tremble. It 
was an old saying "that whoever trembles will be the 
next to be killed. A piece of shell flew past without 
hitting him but with such force that his head was 
turned half way round and so suddenly that it 
cracked, and he had to take both hands to put his 
head in the right position again. In this battle he 
was on the reserve force and was stationed where he 
saw the whole battle. He was at another time 
detailed to make a coffin for a deserter, who, when 
taken to the grave to be shot, sitting on his coffin, 
bared his breast and pointing to the spot said, "boys, 
shoot me here," and when shot, fell stone dead in his 
coffin. 

It is related that when Mr Rosenberger was a 
creeping baby that his sister took him up in the third 
story of the mill in which they lived, and while she 



38 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

was sweeping the floor he crept to the door and fell 
down three stories, fortunately falling in a pile of 
shavings, and bounced like a rubber ball. The mill- 
wright, who was standing there at his work, caught 
him up and ran in the mill, and oil examining him 
found him unhurt. 

Mr Rosenberger was superintendent of L W 
Drake's sawing and planing mill at Hazleton, Pa, for 
20 years. In August 1877 he moved his family to 
Philadelphia, where he took charge of Boweby & 
Larish's sawing and planing factory in that city. 
In April 1878 he went to Bloomsbury, N J, to work 
for the same firm, who had built a factory along the 
banks of the Musconnteong. November 30, 1880, he 
moved to Washington, N J, and worked in Daniel F 
Beatty's large organ works, but owing to the condi- 
tion of his health he was forced to leave his work and 
he again moved to Bloomsbury in 1885. Having 
somewhat regained his health and receiving an urgent 
invitation to resume his position he again moved to 
Washington February 24, 1887. After holding his 
position for a short time he was advised by his 
physician to quit work. He again moved to Blooms- 
bury April 27, 1888, and resided there until his 
death. He was a member of John F Reynold's Post, 
No 66, Dept of N J, G A R, of Washington, organized 
April 26, 1882. He was a member of the M K church 
and a class leader for many years in the German M E 
church, of Hazel ton, Pa. He was also a leader of 
schools. C : William, Rosalia, John, Samson, Anna,

a number of years. After his conversion he united 
with the church, but his business required him to 
work on Sundays and which was not consistent with 
his religious sentiment in the matter. However, in 
considering the matter he thought that if he closed 
his shop on Sunday his business would be ruined, but 
being fully persuaded that it was his duty to close 
he resolved to do so. He then moved to Eastou, Pa, 
but here he did not succeed. One Saturday night 
he took the matter to the Lord in prayer, whom he 
told he could not make a living in Easton with his 
shop closed on the Sabbath and that he must have a 
position given to him the Monday following. He 
asked the Lord to direct his feet, for he knew not 
where to go. The Lord giaciously heard his prayer 
and on Monday morning his wife came to the shop 
and handed him a telegram from his sister, which ran 
thus : " John, come down at once ; important busi- 
ness. — Rose." He took the first train for Blooms- 
bury and in the afternoon returned to Easton with the 
key of the Bloomsbury barber shop in his pocket, to 
which place he removed and now conducts a success- 
ful business. He served as class leader, assistant 
Sunday school superintendent and trustee of the 
church. ME. C: (VIII) Hannah Adeline Rosen-

boy Mr Rosenberger moved with his parents to Wilmot 
twp, Ont, where his parents were pioneer settlers and 
had all the inconveniences and requisites of pioneer 
life, such as living in a log cabin in the woods with 
only a fireplace for cooking and a blanket for a door, 
and hunting, horseback riding, fishing, etc. Abram 
helped to clear many a new farm. Machinery being 
almost unknown then and schools few and inferior, 
boys were obliged to work hard, with but little 
opportunity to get an education. Abram's schooling 
consisted of about three Winter's of school. Though 
a studious pupil he had little chance of learning any- 
thing besides reading, writing and arithmetic. His 
mother taught him to read German, which he never 
forgot. 

In 1853 ne bought a farm of his father, where he 
lived until 1863, when he sold it and moved to Huron 
co, Ont, where he had rented the Cober farm. In 
1868 he moved to a farm of his own, where he lived 
until 1876, when he sold and bought a farm nearer 
school. In 1884 he again sold and bought a farm in 
Tuscola co, Mich, where he still resides. 

When Mrs Rosenberger was 1 1 years old her 
parents moved near Antioch, 111, where her father

Uncle D Cole's and going to school, and later began 
sewing at 30 cents a day, until she opened up a dress- 
making shop at New Hamburg, Out, with only 30 
cents in money. She bought a $65 sewing machine 
on time and gradually rose in her business, and after 
dressmaking in New Hamburg many years she sewed 
in Gait, New Dundee and Guelph. Three years

Jan 12, 1872. He was a grandson of Valentine 
Hunsicker, probably the progenitor of all of the 
name in Montg. Co., who came to American in 1717. 
and about 1720 settled in what was then called Van 
Bebber, since Skippack, and now East Perkiomen 
Township. The next generation in the direct line 
was Henry Hunsicker, who was .a noted Menn - 
onite Bishop, and preached 54 years. He was the 
parent of Rev. Abraham Hunsicker, the subject 
of this sketch. His ancestors being followers of 
Menno Simon, a plain unworldly sect, most of whom 
grew up to look upon a liberal education "as of the 
world." Abraham Hunsicker enjoyed but the most 
limited educational advantages. When grownup he 
feltthe disadvantages of the want of Scholastic train- 
ing, and being of a strong natural endowment, early 
conceived the idea of reforming his religious brethren 
in reference to that subject. He was ordained a 
minister of the Mennonite church Jan 1, 1847, and 
soon after was elected a Bishop. About that time a 
Schism occurred in the Mennonite body, and Rev. 
Mr. Hunsicker was seperated from "the old school." 
In 1 85 1 a second divission took place, when he 
set about organizing a .society. He issued a pamphlet

entitled a "Statement of Facts and Summary 
of views on Morals and Religion as related with 
Suspension from the Mennonite meeting." A copy 
of said Pamphlet may be seen in the rooms of the 
Historical Society of Penna. 

About the tiDie of his ordination, (1847), as 
Bishop of the Mennonites in the district of Skippack 
Providence, and Methatchen, he conceived the idea 
in connection with his son Henry A. Hunsicker of 
founding a Boarding School to furnish his people 
better means of education. This was accomplished 
in 1S48 by the erection of the extensive building now 
occupied by Ursinus College. In 1851, in conjunction 
with Prof. J. W. Sunderland he founded Montgomery 
Female Institute, afterward Pennsylvania Female 
College. These proceeding in the cause of education 
and other liberal views held by Mr. Hunsicker, led 
to division in the Mennonite body in the locality, 
and he proceeded at once to organize Trinity Christ- 
ian Church. The church was built in 1853. Several 
years later another church was built at Skippack- 
ville. He was of a humane and practically benevo- 
lent nature and dispensed freely what he had to 
help the poor and labored long and hard to establish 
through the church a fund for the poor. Practical 
religion born of love and good will to all was pre- 
eminently his, and that which he labored to establish. 
He was an advocate of free Communion among Evan- 
gelical Sects, and set the example in the church to 
which he ministered. He wore the plain Menn- 
onite garb while he lived, but was not prepossessed 
in its favor, holding the view that attire is a thing 
of religious liberty. He followed the teachings of 
the Divine Word as he understood them. He was 
of a mild and generous nature, and yet firm and 
uncompromising in what he -egarded as vital; so he 
may be set down as one of the genuine reformers of 
our day. In person he was tall and stoutly built, 
weighing over two hundred pounds, with a face ex- 
pressive of honesty, force and resolution; his forehead 
was massive and his temperament bilious — sanguine, 
indicating power and endurance, his complexion was 



126 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

dark but ruddy: he enjoyed good health as a con- 
sequence of a strong constitution, vivacious spirits 
and temperate living; he was eminently social, finding 
enjoyment in the company of young and old alike 
and ever giving good advice and counsel to all. Mrs. 
Kunsicker was a great granddaughter of pioneer 
Frederick Alderfer, who was born in the Palatinate, 
Germany, May 18, 1715, and emigrated to America, 
arriving Aug 11, 1832. Mrs. Hunsicker's 99th.. birth- 
day anniversary was celebrated at her home in Col- 
legeville, Pa. on the 16th. of November 1897, by a 
large gathering of her descendants. She died in 
1897, in her tooth, year. C: Ann, Benjamin, Es-

completed his education at Freeland Seminary (now 
Ursinus College) then under the principalship of his 
brother, Dr. A. H. Fetterolf. At 16 years of age 
he taught in the public schools of Berks and Montg. 
counties for five years. In 1871 he engaged in 
mercantile pursuits in Philadelphia, being first em- 
ployed as a lumber inspector, and subsequently, under 
the firm of Fetterolf & Rosenberger, was engaged in 
the flour and feed business on Market St. He re- 
mained here in business until 1884. From 1888 to 
1890 he was a member of the firm of the Roberts 



128 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

Machine Company, of Ccllegeville, Pa., taking 
charge of its finances and general business. Mr. 
Fetterolf has held a number of public positions. He 
has always been a staunch Republican, and has taken 
great interest in local and state elections. In 1882 
he was elected justice of the Peace for the township 
of Upper Providence, and re-elected in 1887, but later 
resigned to accept a County office. As Justice of 
the Peace, he enjoyed the confidence of the people, 
and did quite an extensive business. During the time 
he acted in many trust capacities, settling a large 
number of estates of decedents and assigned estates, 
in all which he displayed signal ability. He was 
Deputy Clerk of the Courts of Montgomery County 
from 1 89 1 until he resigned to accept a more res- 
ponsible position in the House of Representatives, 
at Harrisburg. In 1885 he made his first ap- 
pearance in the House of Representatives 
in the position of Transcribing Clerk. His ability 
and faithfulness in this position was such that at the 
following session he was promoted to the position of 
Speaker's Clerk, and so served during the session of 
1887. During the session of 1889 he was again pro- 
moted, this time to the position of Journal Clerk. 
During the session of 1891 he was filling his position 
as Clerk of the Courts, and therefore was not in 
Harrisburg. In 1893 Mr. Fettetolf again received 
an appointment in the House of Representatives for 
a still more responsible position, that of Resident 
Clerk, and later was elected Chief Clerk. 

In 1892 Mr. Fetterolf was unanimously elected 
Chairman of the Republican County Committee of 
Montgomery Co. and conducted the campaign of that 
ye^r and the follow'ng year so successfully as to elect 
the entire ticket with a single exception. In this po- 
sition he developed great executive ability, and de- 
monstrated his shrewdness as a political organizer. 
In 1893 he was appointed Secretary of the State Re- 
publican Committee, in which position he served two 
years and was elected for a third term. In this posi- 
tion he has performed valuable services for his party.

Mr. Hunsicker spent his boyhood days oa his 
father's farm, and had only the limited advantages 
of the country schools of that time. In 1835 Henry 
Prizer opened a boarding school in the village of 
Trappe. He died in 1838 and was succeeded in the 
school by Rev. Henry S. Rodenbough. This was 
Mr. Hunsicker's Alma Mater. In 1848 he and his 
father founded "Freeland Seminary," an educational 
institution designed for young men and boys. He at 
once became the principal of the school, and three 
years later the proprietor. He continued as Princi- 
pal of this school until 1865, when he leased the 
school and property to A. H. Fetterolf, one of his 
assistants, for five years. During the time of his 



130 THEROSEN'l'.EKUEK HISTORY 

lease to Prof. F. he sold the school property to Rev. 
J. H. A. Bombroger, D. D., of Philadelphia, who, 
in connection with other enterprising persons, ob- 
tained a charter and founded tjrsinus College. In 
1850 Mr. Hunsicker was ordained to the ministry of 
the New(Oberholtzer) Mennonite Church. On ac- 
count of the liberal and progressive ideas in church 
work, a chism took place in 1851, which resulted in 
establishing an independent church known as Trinity 
Christians, of which Mr. Hunsicker was one of the 
founders, and for which he continued to preach until 
1875. He later connected himself with Presbyterian 
church, and is now a member of the Moravian 
church; the changes in his church relations were 
made on account of change of location.

reared on his father's farm, and in the spring of 
1 85 1, entered Freeland Seminary, (now Lirsinus 
College), and in the fall of 1852, took charge of a 
public scbool in Milford Square, Bucks County. 
During the four consecutive winters he was a 
teacher in the public schools; he attended Freeland 
Seminary during the summer months. In February 
1856 he was appointed to the position of assistant 
teacher in Freeland Seminary, and in two years he 
was promoted to teach the higher mathematics, and 
wae made vice-principal of the instution. It was 
while engaged in these duties that at a meeting of the 
Christian Society, at Freeland, (now Ursinus Col- 
lege), held A. D. i860, he was, according to the 
usages of the church, of which he was a member, 
elected on trial to the office of the ministery. He at 
once began to attend the duties of his new position 
in connection with his school work. On June 25, 

1 86 1, he was ordained to the office of minister of 
the Gospel. The Christian Society materialized and 
was incorporated in the Spring of 1855. The society 
built for itself, in 1S54, what was styled the 
"Christian Meeting House," and the same was 
opened in the spring of 1855 for public worship. In 
February 1862, Mr. Hendricks was elected pastor of 
the Christian Society, and was installed in April 

1862. At this time the duties of this new office oc- 
cupied so much of his time that he was compelled to 



134 THE ROSENBERGEU HISTORY 

resign his position as teacher and vice principal of 
Freeland Seminary. The original Christian Society, 
subsequently Trinity Church, began as an independ- 
ent church in 1888, when it was received into formal 
fellowship with the Reformed Church in the U. S. 
The other appointments of the charge are: Trinity 
Church, Skippackville; and Ironbridge Chapel, 
Rahn Station. 

Mr. Hendricks enjoyed the distinction of having 
served the same charge longer than any other living 
pastor in Montgomery Co. He officiated at upwards 
iooo funerals. He was greatly beloved by his own 
congregation and in much demand outside of his own 
churches. He was a fluent and forcible preacher, 
speaking entirely extempore, in a rapid, earnest and 
convincing manner. In June 1 88 1, Ursinus College 
conferred on him the degree of M. A. and in June 
i8;7, the degree of D. D. C: Lizzie, Ella, Bertha,

He was b at Collegeville, Pa. Oct 13, 1857, d Jan 10, 
1906. He was educated in the public schools of Up- 
per Providence twp subsequently took a full course 
in and graduated from Ursinus College in 1876. He 
then entered the law office of Jacob V. Gotwals, at 
that time District Attorney of Montgomery Co., and 
was admitted to the bar on Oct 1, 1880. He imme- 
diately opened an office in Norristown, where he 
soon began to build up a lucrative practice, and 
where he has remained ever since. He was an elo- 
quent pleader, and was uniformly successful in the 
trial of cases. In 1888 Mr. Hobson put on foot the 
movement to organize the Norristown Title, Trust 
and Safe Deposit Company, and was made its secre- 
tary, treasurer, and trust officer. He was also foun-

DANIEL ROSENBERGER, OF HATFIELD: 



||< Daniel Rosenberger, b in Europe, m Fronica- — . 
He purchased a tract of land in Hatfield, lying along 
the county line near the hamlet of Hockertown, in 
1740. His lands composed 359 acres, bought in two 
tracts and at different times. This large plantation 
bordered on the county line 1 mile, and Yz southwest; 
Within this tract are now the properties of David, 
Samuel and Henry Rosenberger; Milton Jenkins, 
John Landis, and Kile's tavern property. He pur- 
chased his first tract of land, 159 acres, in 1740, of 
Ebernezer Kinnersly, and was the upper or north- 
west side of his subsequent plantation. In 1769 he 
purchased 200 acres of George Krieble. This latter 
purchase took place only two years before his death, 
so that during nearly the whole of his life, he only 
possessed the smaller portion of the tract afterwards 
held by his posterity. 

The larger portion of this latter purchase was 
conveyed by will to Isaac, the youngest son of Dan- 
iel Rosenberger. 

Tradition says Daniel Rosenberger first settled 
near the county line where Samuel Rosenberger now 
lives, then he removed a short distance westward, 
where was the residence of Henry Rosenberger. 
Here he built a stone house in which he died. This 
upper part of his plantation was devised to his son 
David, who built a new house in 1780; the date 
stone may yet be seen in the cellar way of present 
dwelling, and bears the initials, "D. R. B.," stand- 
ing for "David Rosen Berger." David Rosenberger 
bequeathed this property to his son, Henry Rosen- 
berger. It then passed into the hands of Aaron 
Rosenberger, who sold it to Jacob Allebach, and in 
1895, it was sold at Sheriff's sale to one Pennypack- 
er. 



15SJ THE ROSENBEKGEK HISTORY 

No information has come down to ns concern- 
ing the personality of Daniel Rosenberger. He was 
a Mennonite and worshiped at the church near Line 
Lexington, where his remains were buried. He 
made his will Aug 15, 1771, was witnessed by Valen- 
tine Ulrich, John Rosenberger, and Christian Funk, 
and was registered September 23, 1771. The 200 
acres were conveyed to his son David, and 159 acres 
to Isaac. The widow who had the singular name of 
Fronica, was to receive ^700 from her son David, 
showing that Daniel had become a comparatively 
wealthy man, for those days. C: David, Isaac, 
Ann, Mary.

The two hundred acres bequeathed to David 
Rosenberger was bounded on the northwest by the 
cross road, now a turnpike, running from the Co. 
line to Hatfield station. It comprised the Landis 
farm, those of Henry and Samuel Rosenberger; the 
lot of David Rosenberger and the tavern property. 
At the premises of Henry Rosenberger, his great 
grandson, he continued to reside during his life. 
David Rosenberger lived to be quite an old man — 
probably over 80 years of age. Besides the patri- 
mony he received from his father in 1 77 1, he also 
acquired a farm of 78 acres in Hilltown, which he 
willed to his daughter, Fronica. The homestead of 
109 acres was conveyed to his son Henry, in 1821. 
Another farm of 78 acres, at present that of Samuel 
Rosenberger's.was conveyed to his son John by will.

IV- Christian Rosenberger, b about 1773, d 1821, 
m Elizabeth Kraut. His name appears in the re- 
cords in 1795, when he bought for ^408 123 acres 
of the Kinsey estate in Upper Gwynedd, but which 
he sold two years later. In 1797 he bought 129 
acres in Lower Providence, where he remained until 
his death. He was a wealthy man and an extensive 
landholder. His heirs, in 1826, sold a farm of 64 
acres to John Stinson, also six houses and 300 acres

joined the Evangelical Association. In Aug 1843, 
at the Ohio Conf. of the Ev. Ass'n. Church, he was 
licensed to the "Local Ministry." He taught dis- 
trict schools, and preached on Sundays. In 1853, 
'54, '55, the Pittsburg Conf. Ev. Ass'n. sent him to 
travel as preacher on their circuits in Armstrong, 
Jefferson, Clarion and Venango counties of Pa., and

preach on the missions and circuits in the counties of 
Wood, Lucas, Henry, Wyandott, Pickaway, Fair- 
field, and Wayne, Ohio; and Lenawee and Monroe 
counties, Michigan. His voice for public speaking 
finally failed totally and in 1864 he located and enter- 
ed and graduated from the Eclectic Medical Institute 
of Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1869, and has practiced med- 
icine successfully from that time to the present, 
(1900).

VI. Joseph Amasa Munk, M. D., was born on a 
farm in Columbiana County, Ohio, November l c ), 
1847. At the age of five years his family moved to 
Salem, Ohio, and four years later to a farm near the 
village of Mt. Union, Ohio, where he spent several 
years of farm life in work and play and going to a 
district school. 

During the late civil war the bows of his neigh-

borhood, feeling the patriotic spirit of their elders, 
organized a company for military drill of which he 
was elected captain. In the summer of 1864 he de- 
termined to join the Union army and after gaining 
his father's consent enlisted in Co. I, 1.78th (). V. I. 
and with his regiment was immediately assigned to 
active duty in the field. He served as private through 
several campaigns both east and west and in June 
1865, at the close of the war and while yet under 18 
years of age, received his discharge and was muster- 
ed out of the service. 

After returning home he became a student of 
Mount Union college and after attending school one 
year he left college to study medicine with Dr. I). H. 
Rosenberg at Bettsville, Ohio; and in 1869 graduated 
from the Electric Medical Institute in Cincinnati, 
Ohio. 

He first located at Lindse> , < >hio, but soon de- 
cided to go west and located next in Chillicothe, Mo. 
in 1871. Here he practiced medicine ten years; but 
not being satisfied with his opportunities moved to 
Topeka, Kansas, in 18S1 and bought a partnership 
with Dr. P. I. Mulvane. The firm of Drs. Mulvane 
& Munk did a successful business during its eleven 
years of partnership. In 1891 the firm dissolved by 
mutual consent, the senior partner Dr. Mulvane 
moving to Chicago where he retired from active 
practice, and in 1892 Dr. Munk moved to Dos Ange- 
les, California, where he has since lived. 

During his early years of practice he spent his 
leisure time finding out what else he could do believ- 
ing that no man knows what all he can do until he 
tries. His love of nature and natural science often 
took him to the fields and woods. He studied taxa- 
dermy and many mounted specimens of birds and 
small animals ornamented his office. He devoted 
some time to music and composed a number of songs 
that were published in sheet form by John Church & 
Co. of Cincinnati and glees, choruses and anthems 
were contributed to books edited by Prof. H. S. Per- 
kins and published by Lyon & Healy of Chicago. 
After leaving Chillicothe he discontinued writing

music as his time v\ as full}' occupied by his profession. 
In Topeka, as a diversion, he joined the Modoc Club 
a musical organization composed exclusively of men 
and limited to thirty members. The club was organ- 
ized in 1876 and under the able leadership of its per- 
manent president Major T. J. Anderson prospered 
greatly and is in a flourishing condition at Lhe present 
time. The club is in demand at Grand Army gath- 
erings and public meetings and has traveled and sung 
from Boston to San Fransisco. 

Soon after moving to Topeka he became interest- 
ed with h's brothers in the range cattle business near 
Willcox, Arizona where they started a cattle ranch in 
1S82. In 1884 he made his first trip to Arizona and 
was so much impressed by what he saw that after re- 
turning home he tried to find out what had been 
written on that far away land. In his search for 
Arizona books he found a copy of Hinton's Hand- 
book of Arizona which contained a list of a dozen or 
m< re other Arizona books, copies of all of these 
books were procured and since that time he has been 
a constant collector of Arizoniana. In 1900 he pub- 
lished his Arizona Bibliography which contains near- 
ly 1,000 titles. During the past five years he has 
more than doubled his collection and expects soon 
to publish a second, revised and enlarged edition 
which will contain more than 2,000 titles. 

During the past twenty \ ears he has made fre- 
quent trips to Arizona and the southwest and regards 
Arizona as the greatest wonderland in America. He 
is familiar with ranch life, has visited its many 
natural wonders and pi ehistoric ruins and has studied 
its fascinating climate — all of which is described in 
his new book of Arizona Sketches that is just out. 

He has been a regular contributor to current 
medical literature during the past thirty years and 
has written for the local press on hygiene and other 
health subjects. He has been a member of the Ec- 
lectic Medical societies of the several states in which 
he has lived and was elected Vice President of the 
National Eclectic Medical Association in 1876. He 
is the present Dean of the Los Angeles Eclectic Poli-

clinic, a post graduate school of medicine that was 
opened last year. 

He married Emma S. Beazell of Webster, Pa. 
January 9th, 1873. One child was born, a daughter, 
which died in infancy. 

He is a republican in politics and Methodist 
in religion.

Ohio, and with the family a few years later removed 
to Alliance. Ohio. He received his earlier education 
in the Union schools, and later entered Mt. Union 
College. 

During the time required to complete a classical 
course at college, he taught school at various places 
each winter term in order to obtain funds to carry 
him through the remaining terms of the college year. 
Notwithstanding the time thus taken from his college 
work in teaching, by applying himself continuously 
by night study while teaching and long hours of 
stuHy while in college, he finished the four years 
course pi escribed in the college curriculum to obtain 
a classical degree in the short time of three years, 
and was graduated during the month of July 1872, 
\>y obtaining the degree of Bachelor of Arts. At a 
later date the same college conferred upon him the 
degree of Master of Arts, he having pursued a Post 
Graduate course of study including law and the 
scinences. After spending a two months vacation in 
the eastern states, he entered the law department of 
the University of Michigan, located at Ann Arbor, 
Michigan, October first of the same year. But 
being in want of sufficient funds to complete the 
college course, he entered the law office of Judge 
Kent at Detroit, Mich., to prepare himself for the 
coming annual examination to be held by the Su- 
preme Court of Michigan at the April Term, and by 
continuing what had now become almost a habit of 
studing long hours, continuing often into the small 
hours of the night, his preparation was duly com- 
pleted. 

The examination was held on the 29th day of 
April, 1873, at a session of the Michigan Supreme 
Court, composed of Chief Justice Christiancy, Thos. 
M. Cooley, author of Cooley's Blackstone, Judge 
Kent, a nephew of the Illustrious Chancellor Kent, 
and the author of Kent's Commentaries, and Judges 
Cambell and Walker, who together composed the 
Michigan Supreme Court, and who were all present 
and participated in the exhaustive quizzing of the 
applicants for admis.Mon to the Bar. 



18U THE ROSENJJERGEE HISTORY 

Mr. Monk passed a most satisfactory examina- 
tion and was duly congratulated by this august body 
of eminent men that composed the Michigan Supreme- 
Court, upon his success and thereupon ordered that 
a license to practice in all the courts of the state as 
an attorney, solicitor and counselor at law be issued 
to him. he receiving his license to practice law just 
seven months from the time that he commenced his 
law course of study, and matriculation at the Mich. 
University, an achievement that has seldom if ever 
been surpassed. 

Mr. Monk being again out of funds, and it requir- 
ing funds to properly open a law office, he accepted 
the position of Superintendent of Sehoolsat Nevada, 
Iowa, that fortunately was offered to him at this time. 

Having conducted the schools with success 
during the school year and having thus obtained the 
funds required, heopened a law office at Des Moines. 
Iowa, and being aided by the kind assistance of 
Chief Justice C. C. Cole, of the Iowa Supreme 
Court, the officers of the Citizens National Hank, 
and other clients, he obtained at once quite an ex- 
tensive law practice, and successfully conducted a 
number of important suits in the various courts of 
the state. 

During the year 1877 . a good opening offering, 
he together with his brother. \V. C. Monk, removed 
to St. Louis, Mo., and opened law offices with the 
object of making real estate and corporation law a 
specialty. They continued in business together with 
much success until 1882, when by over-application 
his constitution was completely broken down, and 
on the recommendation of his physician he proceeded 
to seek the benefits of a milder climat. and out door 
life in Arizona. 

Arriving in Southern Arizona, he at once saw 
an opening to obtain his object and in cooperation 
with his brothers located a cattle ranch, gaining the 
control of a large body of government land, by locat- 
ing upon the land and building cabins and stocking 
the same with cattle and horses, at the same time 
locating and appropriating and developing all the 



DESCENDANTS OF DAVID ROSENBERGER ]*] 

water consisting of springs that were to be found on 
the land and thus in time they secured control of a 
large tract of land, about twenty miles square, 
located near the railroad with good shipping facili- 
ties, and although they experienced considerable 
trouble with the rustlers (cattle thieves) and Indians, 
the business venture has been a success from the 
start. During the years of 1882 to 18S4, the Apache 
Indians under Geronimo made a number of raids 
from San Carlos Reservation into Southeastern Ari- 
zona, and on into Mexico, and moie than once 
passed by or through the Monk Cattle Range that 
the Monk Brothers had located near Bowie, Arizona. 
These Indians after fruitless effort on the part of Gen. 
Crook to stop their raiding through the country, 
such raids always resulting in the massacre of many 
ranchmen, miners and cowboys living in the territory, 
Gen. Miles, who succeeded Gen. Crook in command 
of the troops in Arizona after a long chase, finally 
succeeded in capturing the Apache Chief Geronimo 
and his followers and brought the whole band number- 
ing about 300, composed of bucks, squaws and 
children, to Bowie Station on the S. P. R. R. from 
which point they were at once shipped by rail to Ft. 
Sill and other points located in the East, where the 
influence of civilization has to some extent enlighten- 
ed and christianized the band. Since the removal 
of this band of Indians, no further trouble has been 
experienced from the Indians, although at the San 
Carlos Indian Agency and Reservation, there are 
now living not less than 6000 or 7000 Indians who 
are still supported more or less by the United States 
Government. 

But with the removal of these Indians our 
troubles were not yet ended, for within a few months 
numerous bands of Rustlers (cow and horse thieves) 
infested this border country between 'Arizona and 
Mexico, and many stattling and unlawful incidents 
might be told ot thier murders, train robberies and 
depredations and injuries inflicted upon the ranch 
men located near this border country joining Mexico, 
on the South. 



1S2 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

During the years 1884, 5 and 6 the crimes com- 
mitted in this section of the country by the Rustlers 
had become so numerous and atrocious that the 
cowmen, miners and freighters united together and 
determined to inaugurate a reform in the administra- 
tion of the laws. To accomplish this purpose, they 
concluded to nominate a reform ticket to be voted 
upon at the next election. At the head of this 
ticket, Mr. Monk was nominated for the office of 
County Judge, together with prominent cowmen 
for Prosecuting Attorney and Sheriff. After a most 
exciting canvass and election, the opposition ticket 
was badly snowed under, and the Cowboy Judge and 
his cowboy friends elected by a large majority. 

From the time that Judge Monk entered upon 
his duties as Judge of the roughest and toughest 
section of Southern Arizona, the cow thieves and 
Rustlers received all that was coming to them. Some 
were killed by the sheriff and his deputies; soi 
were hung by the Vigilance Committee, and some 
were sent to the penitential y and law and order was 
soon established in this section of the territory. He 
served with much success during his term of office 
and was re-elected for a second term, and at the ex- 
piation of this time, Tombstone and Cochise Co., 
Arizona, was as peaceable and orderl) 7 as any section 
located in the Eastern states. 

During the year 1893, there being a vacancy in 
the United States L,and Office at Tucson, Arizona, 
Judge Monk was appointed Receiver of the U. S. 
Land Office at Tucson by President Cleveland, and 
this office he held and filled with credit to himself 
and the Government for the term of four years. 
During his term of office many of the Government 
Reservations upon which the various Army Posts and 
Forts had been located and then abandoned were open- 
ed up for settlement both at private sale and public 
auction . These Public Sales were sometimes conduct- 
ed under adverse circumstances, as an instance might 
be given the sale at Old Fort Grand Reservation. This 
Reservation is located on both banks of the San Pedro 
River, and on account of heavy and continued rains 



DESCENDANTS OF DAVID ROSENBERGER 183 

the river overflowed its hanks, and washed away all 
the bridges crossing the river For many miles in each 
direction from the old fort. As it was impossible h; 
those wishing to bid orally that were on the opposite 
side of the banks noon which the sale was held by 
him the written bid of the would-be-purchaser 
carefully wrapped around a weight and this weight 
was attached to a cord and sent across the river, and 
the award to the highest bidder was returned in the 
same manner to the successful man, and although 
rather tedious work, most of the old fort was dis] 
ed of before the sale was ended. 

At this time Gov. Hughes of Arizona, appointed 
Judge Monk a Regent of University of Arizona, tl 
school being quite small and not very successful but 
under the new administration and the employment of 
new and efficient corps of professions, the University 
within a few years incroased so rapidly in efficiency 
and attendance, that many new departments have 
been established, new buildings have been erected, 
and a fund sufficient provided to insure its continued 
future success. 

Under his appointment by the Commissioners of 
the United States Land Office, as Disbursing Agent 
of the Land Office, and his appointment as Civil Sei - 
vice Examiner for Arizona by the Government, togeth- 
er as manager of the Monk Bros. Ranch, as well as 
his other duties pertaining to the Laud Office and the 
University, he had his time fully engaged, and in 
fact, his health again having failed, he determined 
to again make a change for his future field of labor, 
and after visiting a number of places, and cities in the 
West, he determined that Los Angeles was by far 
the most prosperous and possessed all those attractions 
most desirous to establish a permanent home. Hav- 
ing determined to remove to Los Angeles, California, 
before doing so, however Judge Monk concluded to 
spend some mouths in seeing the Old World and in 
June 1900, sailed from New York on the Steamship 
Furst Bismark, Hamburgh-American Line for 
France; He landed as Cherbough and spent a few 
days in Paris visiting the Exposition and greatly en- 



184 THE ROSENBERGER HISTORY 

joyingthe many and to him then strange sights and 
attractions to be found in the one Paris of the world. 

In succession he visited Switzerland, crossed the 
Alps, twice, once by Simplon Pass, and once across 
the Alps by way of the Trete Noire Pass, traveling 
on and sailing over the Northern Lakes of Italy, 
thence to Milan and along the Riviera to Monte Carlo, 
visiting the Casino, the largest gambling halls in the 
world, where b) ? placing a five franc piece on the 
Roulette table, he won fifty, and on the same day 
and hour many players lost their all, and to these 
life became a burden because they were never able 
to redeem the fortune they had lost. For but a few 
men or women (the women gamble the same as the 
men) can say that they are the "one who broke the 
Bank at Monte Carlo." Thence he traveled down 
the east coast of the Mediterranean from Genoa to 
Rome, the old capitol of Italy, wherein are to be 
found still standing the old walls and the Collsseum 
of the old Roman Empire, thence south to Naples, 
on to Pompeii and to the top of Mt. Vesuvius. 
Thence across Italy to Florence to the famous Cam- 
panile, thence over to Venice, the city built on a 
thousand islands, with canals for streets and gon- 
dolas to convey the people across the city, engaging 
a gondola he passed the Bridge of Sighs that crosses 
one of the canals; visiting the Grand Square of St. 
Mark, St. Mark't: Church, the wonder among the 
churches of Europe, and other points of interest. 
Thence he traveled north through Germany to Ober- 
ammergau where the famous Passion Play is seen 
for a 'season every ten years. 

The following extract, taken from the old parish 
records of Oberammergau, will explain the origin of 
the play in that village: 

"In the year 1633 the pest raged so fearfully 
that in the parish of Kohlgrub (three hours from 
here) there were only two couples left, and a man 
named Casper Schuchler, coming here to visit his 
wife and child, fell by the roadside and was buried. 

"From that day to the eve of Simon and 
Jude, a period of three weeks, eighty-four people 




Joseph A. Munk, M. D. 



DESCENDANTS OF DAVID ROSENBERGER 185 

died of the plague; accordingly, eighteen burghers, 
assembling from the village of Oberammergau, vow- 
ed that once in ten years they would present in living 
pictures the Passion of Jesus Christ. From that 
instant the plague ceased, and those who were ill 
instantly recovered." 

This vow has, with few exceptions when pre- 
vented by war, been faithfully observed every 
ten years. 

Not less than 5000 strangers visit the town every 
week that the play lasts, during the summer months 
of the year and are amply repaid for the expense and 
inconvenience involved in making the journey. 

After spending a very pleasant time in Munich, 
a typical city of German}- and the richest city in 
Germany in its various treasuries of art, he passed 
through Austria to Vienna and was present at the 
annual celebration of the Emperor's Birtbday, and 
witnessed the grandest illumination of a city that has 
possibly ever taken place. 

Thence he traveled north through the city of 
Dresden and in which reside not less than 50,000 peo- 
ple who speak the English language, although in 
the very midst of German culture. Thence on to 
Berlin the capital of Germany. He had often heard 
and read of linden Strassa (unter den linden) and 
imagined its immense big linden trees shading the 
street, but in fact, found a very scraggy and stunted 
lot of linden trees lining the streets for some dis- 
tance, and the Strassa is far from being what could 
be called clean and attractive to visitors. 

From Berlin he traveled west to Wiesbaden, a 
great German watering place. Then to Beibrick on 
the Rhine and passing down the Rhine on a fine 
saloon steamer for a twelve hour daylight ride down 
the River past Bingen on the Rhine on to Bonn, be- 
tween which points the interest of the Rhine scenery 
surpassing that of Europe or America for varigated 
and attractive features. 

Passing through Mayence to Heidelberg, the 
home of the famous old Heidelberg University, he 
proceeded tc the city of Stuttgart, the capital of 



186 THE K08ENBERGEB HISTORY 

Wirtemberg, the place of his father's nativity, with 
the object in view to obtain whatever information 
that he could discover as to his ancestors on his 
father's side. 

After a somewhat hasty and unsatisfactory in- 
vestigation by inquiring of a number of persons 
bearing the name of Monk or Munk residing in 
Stuttgart and the village of Constadt, nearby, as to 
facts relating to his ancestors, or any facts connected 
with their early history. He became satisfied that 
in the earlier genealogy of the family, his great 
grandfather emigrated from England to Germany, 
changing the spelling of the name from the English 
Monk to the German Moonk or Munk, the German 
u having the same sound as the o or oo in the 
English. Acting upon the knowledge obtained, he 
as well as other members of the family have changed 
the spelling of the name from Munk to Monk, al- 
though it is even yet uncertain as to the correct 
spelling of the name. 

From this place Judge Monk proceeded to 
Cologne, thence through Belgium to Brussels, and 
to the battlefield of Waterloo; thence to Amsterdam 
through Holland across the channel to England, 
Scotland and Ireland, to South Hampton and thence 
by the Steamship New York, American Line, back 
to New York. 

The following year finds the Judge taking a 
winter's trip through Mexico, spending most of the 
time in the City of Mexico, with short trips to Vera 
Cruz and other points of interest in the country. 
Then a summer trip through Alaska, to Sitka, pass- 
ing by the Muir Glacier and climbing the Davidson 
Glacier and on his return trip pass'ng through 
Juneau, to Skagaway, and White Pass, back to 
San Francisco. These with side trips to Yellowstone 
Park, Yosemite Valley and the Grand Canon of the 
Colorado, have provided him with the recreation 
and rest that his health demanded, and with renewed 
energy and strength he has located and opened a law 
office in the Citj* of 'Los Angeles, California, where 
he has sufficient business to keep him well employed. 



DESCENDANTS OF DAVID ROSENBERGER 187 

From the time the Judge reached the age of 
twenty- one he has been connected with the various 
secret orders, having joined the Knights of Pythias, 
the order of Elks and the various Masonic bodies. 
In Masonry he passed through the degrees of the 
Blue Lodge, the chapter, the council, the Command- 
ry, and the Shriners, and is now a member of Los 
Angeles Commandry, and Malaikah Council of the 
Mystic Shrine of Los Angeles. 

He is a member of Christ Episcopal Church of 
the city, a member of the Los Angeles Country Club, 
the Jonathan Club, and the California Club, each 
club being the owners of magnificent club rooms in 
the city, and thus providing the opportunity for 
many years denied him by his residence in Arizona, 
that of the association with highly cultivated and 
educated people, and to live in an atmosphere per- 
meated with the latest knowledge of Art, Literature, 
Science and Religion, as well as the enjoyments per- 
taining to the social life of a city of two hundred 
thousand people, and blessed with the finest climate 
in the world.

Funk. She d Mar 8, 1821. He was probably the 
youngest son of Daniel and received the lower por- 
tion of the plantation, comprising - 159 acres, and as 
a consideration the amount of ^20 and 18 shillings 
were paid. The tract is now most occupied by the 
fine farm of Milton Jenkins, comprising* 135 acres. 

Here, surrounded by shade trees, are excellent 
farm buildings of modern construction, The farm 
is watered by a creek, flowing souchward, which 
joins the other branches of the Neshaminy south of 
Line Lexington. Near the present dwelling are two 
old houses, relics of the past, one of stone, the 
other of logs. The latter was built before the Rev- 
olution, or perhaps about 1772. It was the dwell- 
ing of Isaac Rosenberger. He afterwards erected 
a stone house and a barn adjoining. In 1810 he 
purchased 22 acres adjoining on the southern side, 
and had in all 170 acres. After his death the farm 
was sold to Martin Rosenberger, and by him con-

Isaiah m 2nd wife Anna Rosenberger. He attend- 
ed public school until 14 years of age, when he en- 
tered the Lansdale, (Pa.) Reporter office to learn 
the art of printing. Four years later, or after serv- 
ing an apprenticeship, he was employed on the 
Harle} T sville News (then in its infancy) at $1.50 
and board per week, and later was promoted to 
editor. 

After being employed on that paper for over three 
years he took a position as foreman on the Ambler 
(Pa.) Gazette and later was employed on the Phila- 
delphia Press, but lost his position by a strike of 
the Typographical Union in that office one year

later. He was again employed in the Harleysville 
News office as foreman, the paper than being owned 
by the A. E. Dambly estate, of Skippack, Pa., and 
about one year later, on May 8, 1892 purchased the 
establishment from the estate. He was also foun- 
der of the Harleysville and Hatfield Beneficial and 
was elected treasurer of the former in 1894. 

Air. Haldeman is a self-made man in every sense 
that the word implies. He started in life with 
nothing - but good health and plenty of ambition and 
he worked himself up by careful attention to every 
detail of business both as an employee and employ- 
er. He saved his money which he invested in a 
building and loan association until he possessed 
S300. This formed the nucleus capital with which 
he started in the newspaper business. 

After entering the newspaper business he took an 
active part in local politics and his paper was the 
only one in Montgomery county that came out for 
Quay in his memorable fight for control of the 
State Republican organization at a time when the 
Senator's fight was a seemingly hopeless one. 

Mr. Haldeman was elected an alternate delegate 
from the seventh Congressional District to the Re- 
publican National Convention held at St. Louis in 
1896 and was appointed a member of the County 
Executive Committee during the same campaign. 

He is also a member of the Republican County 
Committee. C: (VII) Ella C. Haldeman, b Aug 8,

JOHN ROSENBERGER, SR., OF EIATFIELD. 

||. John Rosenberger, b L724,d 1808. In "Fricks" 
graveyard lies the body of Johannes Rosenberger, 
I) 1724, (1 1808, aged 84 years. During his lifetime 
he purchased many hundred acres of land. His 
ambition was to give a farm to each of his children. 
The site of Hatfield village and station was owned 
by him. His lands extended from thence to the 
Franconia line and even beyond. They covered an 
extremely level territory, with extensive meadows. 
In the northern end of Hatfield village and close to 
the eastern side of the railroad are the modern 
farm buildings formerly belonging to Enos Krieble. 
Here was the site of the old homestead of John 
Rosenberger. The old log house stood there until 
1884 and was torn down and the old barn was de- 
stroyed by fire. At the upper road crossing of the 
brook, on the western side, may be seen a depres- 
sion or hole in the bank, about which trees of con- 
siderable size are growing. This was the site of a 
grkt mill, which was built before the Revolution. 
The land on which it was built was purchashed by 
him in 17b ( > and the mill built soon after. It was 
the first mill erected in this region. It was torn 
down by Peter Conver in 1820. The place where 
stood the old mill is now on the premises of William 
Delp. The lands of John Rosenberger was com- 
prised of at least 308 acres purchased before the 
Revolution and at later periods he purchased sev-

cral hundred more. The farms now owned by 
Jacob Kulp, William Delp, Knos Krieble, John 
Rosenberger, John Kindig - , Jacoby Ott, J Wireman, 
Abraham Gehman J. D. Gehmati, besides smaller 
lots of the villag-e of Hatfield, belonged to John 
Rosenberger. John Rosenberger was twice married, 
his lirst wife's name was Barbara and his second 
wife's name was Christiana, maiden names unknown. 
He was a Mennonite and was one of the four trus- 
tees to whom was deeded the lot where stands the 
Line Lexing-ton Mennonite Meeting-house. C:

in the manufacture of wooden seives used by powder 
manufacturers to sift the powder. He later engaged 
in farming and on retiring from that vocation en- 
gaged in making brooms and all kinds ol bric-a-

useful employment, although afflicted with a pe-

he had few hours in which he was entirely free

264 THE KOSENBEKGKK HISTOKY 

bach, Oct 3, L868, P. O. Hatfield, Pa. Mr. Rosen- 
berger was given a good education. ( >n leaving 1 
the township schools at the ag"e oi 15 years, he took 
a course at Kulpsville Seminary for two winters. 
He then took one term at the Carversville Normal 
Institute and a short teachers preparatory course 
at Pottstown under Robert Crinkshank. He then 
went into the world to make his own war and for 
ten successive terms taught school. In 1869 he 
settled in Hatfield Twp. and in 1S72 bought a farm 
which he has since successfully conducted. Mr. 
Rosenberger has always been a very active Repuli- 
can and has held office of a local nature for many 
vears. . He was a school director for one term and 
in 1890 was a delagate to the Republican State Con- 
vension at Harrisbury. Pa. A few years after sett- 
liny in Hatfield township he was elected assessor 
and filled that post for eighteen consecutive years. 
In L889, after serving 12 vears as assessor he was 
re-elected to this office for three vears and received 
every vote that was polled at that election. 

His long term as assessor, has made Mr. Rosen- 
berger acquainted with almost every man. woman 
and child in the district, and familiar with every 
lot of ground, its dimensions and ownership. 

Mr. Rosenberger has been a very considerable 
collector of books on a wide range ofsubjebts, and 
possesses a good working library. He isaconstant 
reader and one of the intelligent and well informed 
jnen of his community. He is a close student of 
public questions, as well, and familiar with county, 
state and national issues. Although he never serv- 
ed an apprenticeship in the mechanical arts, yet he 
evinces marked inventive genius as an artisan. He has 
invented, draughted and constructed many devices 
and machines of merit which, however, he made no 
efforts to have patented. Menn's. C: David, Mary,

m Barbara Oberholtzer in 1745. She was b 1726, <1 
Feb 5, 1765. In 1745 Henry Rosenberg-er became 
the owner of the old homestead of his father Henry 
Rosenberger, Sr. in Franconia for which the son 
Henry paid ^200. Henry Rosenberg-er also owned 
a farm in New Britain, Bucks Co.. which he pur- 
chased from Christian Miller, deed bearing date of 
April 13, 1775, containing- 100 acres for which he 
paid j£(>66. This property he sold and conveyed 
to his son-in-law Mark Fretz, of New Britain, May 
5, 17S4. At this time (1784) Henry Rosenberg-er 
seems to have been a resident of Franconia, as the 
deed of Henry Rosenberg-er to Mark Fretz, reads 
"Henry Rosenberger, of Franconia Twp., etc. That 
he atone time lived in New Britain township where 
he owned other land, is ce.tain. On Sept 2'), 1774 
he bought 2'*^ acres of John Benner, situated at 
the Neshaminy Creek, adjoining lands of Thomas 
Barton and the said Henry Rosenberger and which 
he sold to John Redline, of New Britain township, 
July- 13, 1790 for ,-/.T75. At this time he must have 
lived in New Britain, as indenture to Redline reads 
'•Henry Rosenberger, of New Britain township and 
Elizabeth being his second wife, maiden name un- 
known. No issue bv her. April 15, 1774, "Henry 
Rosenberger, of New Britain township," bought of 
Theophules Reese, 140 acres, adjoining William 
Davis, Thomas Barton and David Morg-an and sold 
it to Jacob Miller, April 6, 17 ( )5. 

It is said that Henry Rosenberger lived in New 
Britain township about a mile N. E. from the Line 
Lexington Mennonite church, that his farm adjoin- 
ed the township line of Hilltown on the N. W. and 
on the N. E. by a public road. His farm was for 
many years owned by George Scheip. who sold a 
part of it to Aaron S. Swartley.

FIRST ROSENBERGER FAMILY REUNION. 



The first reunion of the Rosenberger family was 
held in Perkasie Park, Bucks County, Pa., on Thursday, 
August 10, 1899. 

The weather in the early morning was rainy, and fears 
were entertained that the rain would interfere with the 
attendance. However, while o'er head the clouds hung 
dark and broken, it ceased to rain, and the descendants 
began to arrive, in vehicles of every description, from 
the surrounding districts of Bucks and Montgomery 
Counties, while the incoming trains brought hundreds' 
more, until upwards of 1,500 descendants of the pioneer 
Henry Rosenberger were present. The arrangements 
of the reunion were in charge of a committee who had 
been engaged for some lime in the work of preparation, 
and the exercises were signally successful. 

Included in the gathering were representatives of 
the family from Bucks, Montgomery and Lehigh Coun- 
ties, and Philadelphia, while several came from distant 
states in the West and Canada. 

The exercises began at 10:30 a. id., when the chair- 
man, Prof. Seward M. Rosenberger, of Quakertown, 
Pa., mounted the platform in the auditorium of the 
park and introduced Prof. Howard Freed, of Lansdale. 
Pa., as the first participant, who rendered a pleasing 
piano solo. This was followed by singing "All Hail 
the Power of Jesus' Name, 11 and a fervent prayer was 
then offered by Rev. G. YV. Hengen, of Perkasie, Pa., 
after which Prof. S. M. Rosenberger, of Quakertown, 
Pa., delivered the address of welcome, to which Rev. S. 
A. Ziegenfuss, D. D., of Germantown. Pa., responded in 
an appropriate address in which he cited his connection 
with the family and congratulated the committee on 
the success of the undertaking. 

Miss Ella Geller, a promising young vocalist, of 
Lansdale. Fa., favored the audience with a vocal solo, 



320 THE [IOSENI5ERGER HISTORY. 

and Miss Stella Rosenberger, of Philadelphia, rendered 
an excellent piano solo. 

The memorial address, prepared by A. R. Place, 
Esq., of Lansdale, Pa., \v;is read by Dr. Daniel M. Lan- 
dis. of Perkasie, Pa., Mr. Place, just having been treated 
for an affection of the throat, his physician would not 
permit him to use his voice. The address was one of 
the best productions of the day. 

The exercises of the forenoon were closed by sin" - - 
ing that patriotic hymn, "America.' 1 

At 2 o'clock, the audience which had been consid- 
erably increased by later arrivals, again gathered in the 
auditorium and the exercises Eor the afternoon were 
opened h\ singing •'Nearer My God to Thee," after 
which a piano duct was rendered by Miss Stella Rosen- 
berger and Howard Freed. The chairman then intro- 
duced Samuel Z. Freed, Esq., of Doylestown, Pa., who 
delivered an address. He was followed by an address 
byProf. A. V. K. Kront. M. A., of Philadelphia. Misses 
Mabel and Susie Rosenberger, of 1 [illtown, Pa., rendered 
a piano duet, and .1. V. Ommeren, Esq., of Quakertown, 
Pa., addressed the audience briefly in the absence of F. 
G. Hobson, Esq., of Collegeville, Pa., who was an- 
nounced on the program as one of the speakers, but 
failed to be present. 

.Miss Ella Geller sang another solo, after which the 
historical address was delivered by Kev. A. J. Fretz, of 
Milton, X. J. 

At the close of the exercises the (juestion of hold- 
ing future reunions of the' family came up for con- 
sideration, and it was moved and carried to hold a 
reunion of the family every five years. 



SECOND ROSENBERGER FAMILY REUNION. 



The second reunion of the Rosenberger family was 
held on Thursday, August 11, 1904, when about 1,000 
descendants of the pioneer Bishop Henry Rosenberger 
gathered in Perkasie Park, Bucks Co., Pa. The day 
did not open auspiciously, and the threatening skies 
kept many away. In the afternoon the large pavilion 
was well filled. 

A short program was rendered in the forenoon. 
Prayer by Rev. S. A. Stopp, of Doylestovvn, Pa. Dr. 
D. M. Landis extended the welcome of the town and 
committee to the visiting relatives. Prof. S. M. Rosen- 
berger responded to the words of welcome. James A. 
Rosenberger, of Milford Square, delivered an oration 
lauding the virtues of the ancestors, and emphasizing 
the need of cheerful devotion to duty and right. Miss 
Nora Rosenberger, of Perkasie, gave a touching read- 
ing, which was sympathetically received by the audi- 
ence. Addresses in the afternoon were delivered by J. 
Ralphus Freed, Esq., of Doylestown. in the English 
language, and Frank R. Rosenberger, of Milford 
Square, in German. The addresses were replete with 
happy allusions and sparkling thoughts. A trio was 
rendered by W. B. Rosenberger's family and a number of 
instrumental selections were rendered by the Misses 
Susie and Mabel Rosenberger, of Hilltown. The music- 
al renditions greatly delighted the audience. The his- 
torical sketch prepared by Rev. A. J. Fretz, the family 
historian, was read by the president of the Association. 
At a business session the officers of the Association 
were re-elected to serve the next reunion — 1907. They 
are Prof. S. M. Rosenberger, President; I. R. Haldeman. 
Secretary; Frank Rosenberger, Treasurer; Dr. D. M. 
Landis. Isaac Rosenberger and Harvey Landis, Execu- 
tive Committee. 



VALEDICTION, 



-o- 



The gentle reminder of the editor that he has about 

completed the manuscript for the Rosenberger Family 
History, and that the lasi article in the form of a vale- 
diction would therefore be expected without much 
further delay, urges me to fulfill a promise which I 
made some time ago, and which I have not forgotten. 
Many of us have no doubt awaited the appearance of 
this work with a great deal of interest. Various matters 
have transpired within recent years to awaken our 
expectations to a greater or less degree, so that any one 
connected with the Rosenberger family, would, from 
time to time, find his feelings agitated, his hopes excited 
and his desires deepened, as these matters relating to 
the history of the family took more definite shape. 

The very first announcement from the Editor call- 
ing our attention to the fact that the publication of a 
history of the pioneers and descendants of the Rosen- 
berger family would be undertaken, could not fail to 
awaken a responsive chord in the heart of every living 
member who happens to be in any way connected with 
the family. And every subsequent announcement of 
the intended project, had the effect to increase our 
interest and augment our sympathy in behalf of the 
movement. 

But this favorable regard reached its highest point, 
(in our judgment ) in the very successful RoSENBEKGEB 
Family Reunion, held at Perkasie Park in the summer 
of 189'.). Such an outpouring of people must certainly 
have exceeded the most Banguine expectations of the 
committee who arranged for the re-union, and demon- 
strated in no uncertain tones the attitude of the de- 
scendants to their family history. 

The preparation and Completion of such a history 
is necessarily fraught with a great deal of labor, research 



VALEDICTION. 323 

and patience. We are deeply sensible and fully appre- 
ciate the greatness and accuracy of the work done by 
the Editor in gathering, compiling and arranging the 
historical data of this family, tracing our lineage and 
making it possible for us to see the line of our particular 
descent from, and our relations to the parent stem. It 
is an intricate and yet withal an interesting study. 

As we scan the pages of this volume, we learn a great 
many things that we had not known before. We gain 
a better insight into our family history, appreciate the 
more fully the noble deeds, the pioneer work, the glori- 
ous achievements, the arduous self-denials, the worthy 
examples and goodly heritage handed down to us by 
our fathers. Our eyes are opened and our hearts are 
impressed as Ave ponder the character of our ancestors 
in their integrity, uprightness, honesty and manly 
virtues. Such consideration and reflection cannot fail 
to incite us in constantly putting forth the great*-' 
efforts to prove ourselves the worthy descendants of 
noble sires. What man hath done man can do. ! - 
would be idle folly, therefore, for any one (o presume 
to rest on the laurels of his progenitors. 

'"Let us, then, be up and doing, 
With a heart for any fate: 
Still achieving, still pursuing, 
Learn to labor and to wait." 

While we may reasonably expect thai ail our 
kindred will make themselves the possessors of at least 
one copy of this valuable history, (for its price is cer- 
tainly placed within the reach of each one) we, at the 
same time hope that they will not only give tin 1 volume 
a place on their library shelves, but will study its pages 
and acquaint themselves with its facts. The character 
of the work stamps it largely as a book of reference, 
one that needs to be consulted repeatedly, in order to 
be rightly understood and properly appreciated. Fre- 
quent recurrences to its pages, and a constant looking 
up of its events and names will till the mind with a 
proper knowledge of our genealogy, and enable us to 
speak intelligently concerning the matters thai 
related to us so closely. 



324 THE KOSENliEIUiEK HISTORY. 

It is a work, therefore, no! of passing value and 
present interesl only, bul one that grows upon us as 
time passes on, ami will prove a, treasure even to our 
succeeding generations. 

T have already written enough and ought to say 
farewell, but before doing so finally, let me impress the 
thought: How will our lives compare with the lives of 
our forefathers ? Will the world be the better because 
we have lived in it ? Will our children and children's 
children rise up to call us blessed, because we have not 
lived in vain, and because we have made the best use of 
our talents, and have been faithful, devoted and true to 
our Divine Lord and Master ? We thus leave a good 
example behind us and pass from the scenes of this life 
into the blessedness of the life beyond. With these 
thoughts we lay our pen down as we write a last and 
an affectionate farewell.

a "Redemptioner, 1 ' and his passage to America was 
paid by Rev. Henry Rosen berger, in whose service he 
continued for three years. 

Philip Schwardle came to America sibout 1782. He 
was probably a resident of Montgomery Co. for some 
time, but later located in Bucks Co. where lit' became a 
prosperous farmer. 

It is not known to the writer when the brother Jacob 
Schwardle came to America. He lived and died in 
Bocks Co., where he located in the year 1781.

of two tracts of land which his father, Henry Kraudt, 
purchased of William Allen, in Bedminster on the 
Deep Run, at the place now known as "Krout's Mill." 
The first tract, consisting of 91 acres, was purchased in 
1750, and the other of 194 acres purchased in 1762. 

Jacob also purchased 500 acres of the Ebenezer Large 
tract in 1775. and in 1786 conveyed one-half of it to 
his brother Henry. Jacob erected a mill on this 
homestead tr;ict and purchased a few acres adjoining

term of three years, as provided by the laws of that 
period. He came to Franconia and worked faithfully 
upon the Indian Creek farm, and found favor in his 
master's eyes as a worthy young man. moreover, he 
found favor with the daughter Magdalena. and after 
obtaining his freedom, they were married. He was 
well rewarded for he obtained a good wife, and inherited 
a fine farm, which he transmitted to his descendants,

Which they ejected grist and saw mills, residing there 
until March, 1862, when they removed to a farm in 
Salisbury township. After disposing of the farm and 
mill property, Mr. Ernst organized a singing class at 
Millwood, Lancaster Co., Pa., and conducted it for 
several years, exercising the class in mnsic to both 
German and English hymns on Sunday afternoons. 
This lead to his purchasing a printing outfit and 
publishing the "Waffenlose Waechter' for nearly 
eighteen years. They removed to Olathe. Kansas, 
where they now reside on a farm of 400 acres, and were 
influential in establishing the u First Mennote Church" 
in Johnson Co., Kansas. P. 0., Olathe. Kansas. C:

V. Eleazer Israel Z. Ernst, b. June 27. 1849: m. 
Mary G. Zook. 1874. P. 0., Olathe, Kans. General 
organizer of the Labor Exchange movement and 
manager of the Freedom Colony work, and has been 
actively engaged in the reform field for over seventeen 
years. In 1888 he started out as a devoted and deter- 
mined reformer, first as an agitator,, writer, lecturer 
and organizer in the alliance and political ranks, for 
nearly four years, but being rather apt to follow 
practical lines for the sake of true principles he found 
that party politics was only a plan to fool working 
people while the knaves get the benefits. Hence every 
theory which any agitator or reformer presented to the 
public, was investigated until at last the correct system 
for honest labor to adopt was found in DeBernardi's 
Labor Exchange, as presented in his book, "Trials and 
Triumph of Labor." This completely covers every 
thing else and clear minds can readily see that this is 
the only possible plan to follow in order to get exact 
justice for all. Mr. Ernst was editor and publisher of 
the "Progressive Thought 1 for about ten years, and 
expects to again take up that work in the near future. 
He has also otherwise been variously engaged as farmer 
and carpenter, &c. Menu's. ('.: Phineas, Bertha, Leo.

Dr. Reuben H. Andrews, b. in Bucks County, Pa., 
January 20, 1850. In early life he worked on the farm, 
attending district school in winter. When 18 years of 
age he attended for a short time the Excelsior Normal 
Institute at Carversville, with the object of preparing 
for teaching. He taught his first term of school at 
Upper Sellersville, then spent a term at the Keystone 
State Normal School at Kutztown. This was followed 
by another term of teaching in Bedminster township. 
About the same time he commenced the study of med- 
icine under the tutorship of Dr. Moses Rice, of Hagers- 
ville, and later of Dr. J. H. Krause, 6f Plunisteadville. 

In the spring of 1814, he graduated from the medical 
department of the University of Pennsylvania, and at 
once entered upon the duties of his chosen profession 
at Kulpsville. Pa., where he soon gained a liberal 
patronage. 

In the spring of 1870. he moved to Lansdale, Pa., 
where he erected a dwelling. While here engaged in

the active duties of his profession, Ue conceived the idea 
of publishing a monthly medical journal, "The Medical 
Summary," the firsl number of which was issued in 
March, 1879. En 1881, he bought a half interest in 
"The Lansdale Reporter," and erected a building as a 
home and office for the printing establishment. 

In the spring of 1884, he sold his practice and dwell- 
ing, and bought a property in Philadelphia, where he 
lived a year, and then sold it and returned to Lansdale, 
and built one of the finest residences in that section at 
the time. Having purchased the other half interest in 
the "Reporter" and printing business, he conducted it 
himself about a year, then sold it, and soon afterward 
moved to Philadelphia, where he since devotes almost 
his entire time to the medical journal, doing only a 
select practice. The "Medical Summary" is a national 
journal with an edition of over 10.000 copies annually, 
and circulates in every section of the country. Baptist.
