PREFACE. 



A short account of the Rosenberger family was 
prepared by Edward Mathews, of I^ansdale, Pa., 
and published in a local paper in the beginning of 
i8S8. 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,

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

The work will be of more or less interest to the 
public Kenerally, but more especially to those bearing 
the name of RosenberKer and their descendants. 
The family of Rosenberger has been much extended 
in Montgomery and adjacent counties, and also in 
distant i)ortions 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 de.sceudauts that would 
otherwise have been lost. 

The author al.so acknowledges himself indebted 
to the many friends for kind favors received during 
the compilation of this work in the form of data. etc.

able data, to whom we express our sincere grati-

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 THK ROSKNHHRC.I-R HISTORY 

history. That he does not stand alone in this huk is 
cvidcnctHl l.y these words from another member of the 
family ct.min^; to notice thron^;h a connuunication : 
"I shonld like to know something' more of tlie 
RosenlKrrKer family : I know all too little of them." 
Preservation of and interest in family records 
with ns. where prinogenitnre and aristocracy do not 
obtain, is. no donbt. largely a matter of sentiment, 
bnt it is sentiment that is not to l)e despised. The 
matter flavors also to a large degree of duly, and, in 
this measure, "it l>ecomcs an incumbency uikjii us. 
There are two extrenies into which the human family 
may fall with respect to the attitmle 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 
l>eople. it is feared, are rapidly drifting into the 
other. As we fulfill the divine command to honor 
our parents we must needs l^ecome ])osse.s.sed of a 
lively interest in those who have gone before and 
through our parents have handed down to us those 
(jualities which are priceless legacies. While we 
might dc-sire a family history to contain fuller accounts 
of the characteristics, traits and deeds of our ancestors 
than this work does, we shall rememlK*r 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 l>e used as a framework uik)M which 
the fancy can build a structure. Among such facts 
we find that they left the mother country for the sake 
of liU-rty of conscience, that they helped to subdue 
the rngged wilderness of the new world, and that 
theirs was a religi«)n that taught simplicity of life. 
cxjnsistency of deeds and profession, and peace with all 
men. lUiilding uiH>n 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 liis 
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

reveal the nianv d.flerenl walks in life chosen hy the 
manv descendants. In the lijiht of the fact that at 
first onlv a few vtKMtions were represented by the 
family the.<^- will have still more interest. When it is 
noted that at hr-^t the family was limited to erne 
LxMlity and now is spread over the whole extent of 
the United States and (iiiite largely represented m 
Canada added interest will follow. Bnt this part will 
be of still more valne 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 tlieiu over to posterity. 

To Rev. .\. J. Kretz. the author, every one con- 
nected with the family owes a debt of gratitude. 
The preparation of a work of this character involves 
the exiKMuliture of much time and lalxjr. l^sides the 
accompaniment of numy vexatious experiences. To 
the members of the family who have assisted in 
furnishing the necessary data and have helped in tins 
and other wavs in kindling an interest in tlie history 
of the family, especially to I. K. 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 l^e widely 
circulated and accmiplish 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 i8 years and over, and the maiden names of all females of 
i8 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 FAMIEY 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. Rauchenberger 
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).

14 THE ROSENRF.RGER HISTORY 

It is supposed that these famiHes 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 
Rosenberger, Sr. John Shult 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 lx)ard ship or soon after 
the landing in America. It is quite certain that 
neither lienjamin or his eldest son, Yelles, reached 
the age of 96 years, "therefore it must have been 
lienjamin'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 probal)ility 
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 
'777. •'>ged 63 years or more. His eldest son, Yelles, 
was born before 1735 and died 1808, aged 73 or more. 
Thetimeof the emigration of Henry Ro.senberger, 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, I'a., and a 
considerable number alsc) reside in Waterloo county, 
Ontario, Can. 

AH '111- earlier iiKinlxis of ihe.se families belonged 



ROSENBERGERS OF MONTGOMERY 15 

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

Since writing the above we have receiv-ed 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 161 1 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 1851 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 



\ 



i6 THE ROSHNHERCiKR HISTORY 

Scientific" on fanning from a tnivtlcr in Austria describing 
the SchwartzcnlK-TKer estulc. These oJ)tained the estate after 
the flif-ht of the Rosen»>erj4 family. WinterKan is the central 
villa>;e. The fish jx.n.l still retains its orij^inal name, Roseii- 
iH-rg '"Teuch." I do not know the «late of the article. \Vc 
and I'ncle Dave Roscnl>erg, of Ik-tt.sville, 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 rcsitcctfully. M K. RoSKNHHKC. 

The article alx)ve referred to and fiirni.shed by 
Mi.ss Rosenberjj reads as follows : 

A I'RINCHLY ESTATE. 

The domain of the Schwartzenbergs' estate consists of 
99 cities ami villages and 30,(100 people on one farm. The 
extensive and interc-sting collection of ])ruducts of the famous 
estate of the Prince John .\d(>l]>h \on Schwartzenberg's 
pavillion in Uie National I^xposition has led to a general 
•lesire among those interested in agriculture to see for tlieiii- 
sches the rich fields aii<l ])crfect ajuwinled fann e.stablishment 
thai has brought forth such a wealth of various j)roducts. 
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 Hohemia. The 
views, landsca]>es and sceneries before our sight while enroute 
wiis interesting ami instructive. The Schwait/enbergs' domain 
licth towards the northwest from Vienna in the direction of 
the Prague, and comprises alH)nt 75,10) acres, of whiih about 
4o,(xx) acres is woodland and 2t),tx)0 ai res are under cidlivalion, 
while 14,000 acres are covered with water, lakes, etc., the 
remainder farm yards, streets, etc. This domain has been in 
the |K>sscssi«>n of the Schwartzenbergs" since A. D. l(>6o, hav- 
ing iK-en formerly in the jxjssession of the Ri>senl>erg family. 
The ilomain rcvertetl to the Crown on the death of the last one 
of the Rosenl>ergs', .\. 1). 161 1, antl was presented by the 
Cr«>wn to John Adolph Schwart/enberg at the time of A. I). 
1660. The jM»pulation of the domain is in the neighborhood 
of al)oul io.mxj pe<ii)le, who inhabit 99 villages, of which 
Wintcrgan is the residence of tin- 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 Rr)si:xui':R(;i:R, oi- fraxcoxia. 



I. Henry Rosenber^cr is believed to have been 
the first of the name who came to Montgomery county 
as an emigrant from Germany, and was a Mennonite. 
He purchased hind in Franconia on November 14, 
1729. of James Steele, of Philadcli)hia. For /"30 lie 
obtained 150 acres. This was situated alx)ut 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 Souderton and Harleysville turnpike to that 
stream, and including the site of the Mennonite 
burying ground. Within these boundaries are now 
the farm of Jacob S. Alderfer, vSchueck's mill and the 
farm of Michael vSwartley. 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 si/e. It bears the date of 1S09 and the 
name of Jolin " Schwardle " in ("iermaii, who was the 
grandfather (if the present owner. To the luirth is a 
modern barn and close to hand an older one. The 
latter is the oldest buiUliug about the i>remises. On 
tlie wooden beam over the door is inscribed the name 
of Henry Rosenl>erger and Barbara, his wife, with the 
date of 1755. Tile fust barn oi" all, in existence 
iK-tweeu 1730 and 1755, stood more closely adjacent 
to the banks of the stream, which was thought haiuly 
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 Franconia in 1734 is 
found the name of Henry Rosenberger. 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- 



THK ROSKNUHRGTR HISTORY 

veyinK his plantntion lo his son, luit he jiroljably 
rcuuiineii with Ht-nry. 

Il is not known when Henry Roscnl)crger died. 
He was a Mcnnonite and one of the original wor- 
shippers at Franconia, wliere he was also hnried. 

The Franconia Meiuionite meetinghouse is one of 
Un: typical j)laces 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 jieople it is plain lo 
austerity. Many horse sheds encompa.ss it about. 
It is built uix)n an elevation from which a splendid 
view of hill and valley to the north and west may be 
obtained. This overlotAs a dcn.sely 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 Hranch of the Perkiomen. On the 
northwest side of the ujeetinghouse lies the extensive 
Imrying grouml. thickly dotted with marble tomb- 
stones, where repose the dead of many generations. 
This congregation is one of the .strongest in 
numlK-r, having over 700 members. A conununion 
service in the Spring brings out a very large attend- 
ance, and the services have a (juaint interest for the 
.stranger. The service, beginning at s o'clock in the 
morning, lasts over three hours. Tlie women are 
seated within the two aisles, while the men occupy 
the side i>ews, their liats being hung on long rows of 
iK-gs over the ai.sles. In the rear vestilmle, entered 
by a side door, is the women's room, where are Iinng 
their Ixjnnets and extra clothing. The vScripinres 
nrc read in German and several j)reachers in turn 
exhort the congregation. The e!eln(■nt'^ of the cum- 



DESCENDANTS OF HENRY ROSENBERGER 21 

niunion are handed to each member by the bishop, 
who has an 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, 
Sr. , Benjamin, Daniel, John, Henry, Jr. If there 
were daughters we have not learned of them.

Helena . She died in 1799. Benjamin Rosen- 

K< r HT settled in Hatfield township, Montgomery 

ty, Pa., where, as early as 1739, he purchased 
1 25 acres on the County Line, comprising the present 
Oliver G. Morris and Frick farms at Line Lexington, 
of Hljenezcr Kinnerslcy. 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 ])ossession one year. 

Henjamin Ro.senherger was of a dealing, trading, 
siK'Culative disjxjsilion, and we find him buying and 
selling various projxjrties in ilifTerent townships all 
his life. His next purchase was a tract of land of 1 1 2 
acres in Hatfield, lying further southwest. This was 
S6 |>erches by 210 in dimensions. The neighboring 
1 ■ lers were James Dunn on the southeast, Jacob 

Wviinian on the southwest, John Shooter on the 
northeast, and ICdward Warner on the northwest. 
This place was Ixjught of David Thomas for /^i 20, 
It had iKdonged to a grant of 12 10 acres made to 
Jonathan Hayes in 1705. who made the first improve- 
nicnls. His only son. Jonathan, lia 1 two sisters, 
I 'h. wife of Richard Maris, and Mary, wife of 

--. The daughters were the heirs after the 
ucMui ut ijjcir brother. They s<»ld to John W'illi.ams 
in 1723, who conveyed to David Thomas in 1731.

DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN ROSENBERGER 23 

We next find him the owner of the late Server farm, 
just north of Lansdale, 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 Lukens. 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 Fleisler, 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 FYanconia 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.

in that county. In 1760 he bought of Henry Funk a

he sold in 17O5. Before 1773 he lived in Springfield, 
on the Saucx>n line, a iM)rtion of his farm being in

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 Slieriff'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,

Brier Creek, near Mauch Chunk, Pa, Jan 7, 1839. 

When a young man he learned the cabine\mak- 

ing trade, and is said to have been one of the best. 

He enlisted in the Rebellion September i, 1864, in 

Philadelphia, in the 203rd Regiment, Company D, 

Pennsylvania, and was a volunteer in the roth 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 Imild and to level ofiF 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, "bo5^s, 

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

sweeping ihe floor he crept to the di)or and felt 
n three stories, fortunately falling in a pile of 
shavings, and Ixiunced like a ruljher ball. The niill- 
\vrij;ht. who was standiiij; there at his work, cau^lit 
hini up and ran in the mill, and on examining him 
found him unhurt. 

Mr Rosenherger was superintendent of L W 
1> ' - sawing and planing mill at Ilazlelon, Pa, for 
>. In August 1S77 he moved his family to 
Philadelphia, where he took charge of Boweby &.

In April 1S7S he went to IJloDmsbury. X J, to work 
for the .same firm, who had built a factory along the 
banks of the Musconnteong. November 30. 1S80, he 
moved to Washington. X J. and worked in Daniel F

tion of liis health he was forced to leave his work and 
he again moved to Hloomsl)ury in 1885. Having 
'lat regained his health and receiving an urgent 
::.......: m to resume his position he again moved to 

Washington February 24. 1887. After holding his 
]K)sitiou for a short time he was advised by his 
physician to cptit work. He again moved to Blooms-

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, l)ut 
being fully persuaded that it was his duty to close 
he resolved to do so. He then moved to Easton, 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 graciously 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- 
Iniry 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. M E. C : (VIH) Hannah Adeline Rosen-

had all the inconveniences and requisites of pioneer 
life, such as living in a log cabin in the woods with 
only a fireplace for co4.)king and a blanket foT a door, 
and hunting, horseback riding, fishing, etc. Abram 
heli)cd to clear many a new farm. Machinery being 
almost unknown then and schools few and inferior, 
lx)ys were obliged to work hard, with but little 
opj)ortunity to get an education. Abram's schooling 
consisted of alH)Ut tliree Winter's of school. Though 
a studious pupil he had little chance of learning any- 
thing U-sides reading, writing and arithmetic. His 
mother taught him to read German, which he never 

forgot. 

In 1853 he bought a farm of his father, where he 

livetl until 1863. when he .stjld it and moved to Huron 
t. where he had rented the Cober farm. In

Jan 12. 1872. He was a grandson of \'alentine 
Hunsicker, probably the progenitor of all of the 
name in Montg. Co., who came to American in 17 17. 
and about 1720 settled in what was then called \'an 
Bebber, since Skippack, and now K)asl Perkiomen 
Township, The next generation in the direct line 
was Henry Hunsicker, who was a noted Menu - 
onite Bishop, and preijched 54 _\ ears. He was the 
parent of Rev. Abraham Hunsicker, the subject 
of this sketch. His ancestors being followers of 
Mcnno 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 w;l^' ordained a 
minister of the Mennonite church Jan i, 1847, and 
sioon aft'-T was elected a Bishop. About that time a 
Schism occurred in the Mennonite Inxly, ami Rew 
Mr. Hiuisicker was seperated from "the old school." 
In 1.S51 a second divission took place, when he 
set alKJUt organizing a society. He issued a pamphlet 




Henrv A. Huiisici<er. 



DESCENDANTS OF ELIZABETH ROSENBERGER 135 

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 vSociety of Penna. 

About the time 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 Henr}' A. Hunsicker of 
founding a Boarding School to furnish his people 
better tueans of education. This was accomplished 
in 1848 by the erection of the extensive building now 
occupied by Ursinus College. In 1 85 1 , 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. Thechurch 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

Fcttc-rolf has held a nuniLer of jniblic positions. He 
lias always ^K-en a staunch Repv.Mican. and has taken 
great interest in local and state elections. In 1.S82 
he waselected ]ustice of the Peace for the tcwnship 
of rpiH?r Proyidence. and re-elected in 1S87, but later 
resigned to accept a County office. As Justice of 
the Peace, he enjoyed the confidence of the people, 
and did quite an cxtensiye 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 Co-irts of Montgomery County 
from i'sqi until he resigned to accept a more res- 
ponsible position in the House of Representatiyes, 
at Harrisburg. In 1885 he made his first ap- 
pearance in the House of Representatiyes 
in the position of Transcribing Clerk. H^s ability 
and faithfulness in this position was such that at the 
following session he was promoted to tlie position of 
Speaker's Clerk, andsoseryed during the session of 
1SS7. During the session of iSSyhe wasai/ain pro- 
moted, this time to the position of Journal Clerk. 
During the session of 1S91 he was filling his position 
as Clerk of the Courts, and therefore was not in 
Harrisburg. In 18^3 Mr. Fetteiolf again recen-ed 
an appointment in the House of Representatiyes for 
a still more responsible position, that of Resident 
Clerk, and later wa- elected Chief Clerk. 

In 1S92 Mr. Fettertilf was unanimously elected 
Chairman of the Republican County Committee of 
Montgomery Co. and conducted the camjiaign of that 
yer r and the followng year so successfully as to elect 
the entire ticket with a single exception. In this i)o-

Mr. Hunsicker spent his boyhood days on 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

J. II A Bomhroger, I) I)., of I'hiladelphia. who, 
in coniKCtioii with other cntcr]»risinx j)crsoiis, ob- 
tained a charter and founded I rsinus Colk-^e. In 
1S50 Mr. Hunsicker was ordained to the ministry of 
the New(Oberholt/.er ) Mennonite Church. On ac- 
count of the liberal and progressive ideas in church 
w(jrk, a chistu took jjlace in 1S51, which resulted in 
establishing an independent church known as Trinity

1851, entered Frceland Seminary, (now Ursmus

Seminary during the summer months. In February 
1S56 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 FYeeland, (now Ursinus Col- 
lege), held A. D. i860, he was, according to the 
usages of the church, of which he was a member,

looo fiuierals. He was greatly l)eloved 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. InJuneiHSi, Ursinus College

DANIEL ROSENBERGER. OF HATFIEIvD. 



\\. Daniel Rosenberger, b in Europe, m Fronica— . 
He purchased a tract of land in Hatfield, Iving 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 >^ 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 Ro.senberger. 
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 
dweUing, 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- 



cr.

No information has come down to ns concern- 
ing: the personality of Daniel Rosenberger. He was 
a Mennonite and worshiped at the churcli near Line 
Lexington, where his remains were buried. He 
made liis will Au).: 15, 1771. was witnessed by \'alen- 
tinel'lrich. John Rosenberger, and Christian I'unk, 
and was registered September 23, 1771. The JOO 
acres were conve>ed to his son David, and 159 acres 
to Isaac. The widow who had the sinj?ular name of 
Fronica, was to receive /^ 7 00 from her son David, 
showing that Daniel had l)ecome a comparatively 
wealtliy man, for those days. C: David, Isaac, 
Ann, Marv.

VI. Joseph Amasa Munk, M. D., was born on a 
farm in Columbiana County. Ohio, November 19. 
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, (3hio, where he spent .sexeral 
years of farm life in work and play and going to a 
district school. 

During the late civil war tlie bows of his neigh-

organized a company for military ilrill of wliicli he 
was ck-ctc'd captain. In the snmuicr of 1S64 he de- 
icrmincd to join the I'nion army and after ^aininn 
his fathers consent enlisted in Co. I. l7.SthC). \'. I. 
and with his rejjiment was inunediately assigned to 
active dnty in the field. He served as private throuj^h 
se\eral campaigns Itoth east and west and in Jnne 
1^465, at the close of the war and while \ et nnder IS 
years of age, received hisdi.scharge and was muster- 
ed out of the service. 

After returning home he became a student oi 
Mount I'nion college and after attending school one 
>ear lie left college to study medicine with Dr. 1). II. 
Rosenberg at liettsville. Ohio; and in 1S69 graduated 
from the IClectric Meilical Institute in Cincinnati. 
Ohio. 

He first located at Lindsew Ohio, but soon de- 
cided to go west and located next in Chillicothe, Mo. 
in 1871. Here he practicetl medicine ten >eajrs; but 
not being satisfied with his opportunities moved to 
Topeka. Kansas, in iSSi and bought a partnership 
with Dr. V. I. Mulvane. The firm of Drs. Mulvane 
c\: Munk did a successful business during its eleven 
years of partnershiji. In \^'')i the firm. dissolved by 
mutual consent, the senior partner Dr. Muh'ane 
moving to Chicago where he retired fn)m acti\e 
practice, and in iSs72 Dr. Munk moved to Los Ange- 
les, Califorina, where he has since li\ed. 

Duritig his early years of pr.ictice he spent his 
leisure time finding out what else he could dol)eliev- 
ing that no man knows what all he can do until he 
tries. His love of nature and natural science often 
took him to th-.* fields and woods. He studied taxa- 
dermy and many mounted specimens of birds ami 
small animals ornamented his ofTice. He devo'ed 
some time to nnisic and composed a number of songs 
tliat were published in sheet form by John Church ^c

miisic as his time was fully occupied by his profession. 
In Topeka, as adiversion, 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 flo'irishing conditional the 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 
Wdlcox, Arizona where they started a cattle ranch in 
1882. In 1S84 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 liad been 
written on that far away land. In his search for 
Arizona books he found a copy of Hinton's Pland- 
book of Arizona which contained a list of a dozen or 
mere other Arizona books, copies of all of these 
l)ookswere procured and since that time he has been 
a constant collector of Arizoniana. In 1900 he pul)- 
lished his Arizona Bibliography which contains near- 
ly i ,000 titles. During tlie past five years he has 
more than doul)led his collection and expects soon 
to publish a se^rond, revised and enlarged edition 
which will contain more than 2,000 titles. 

During the ])ast 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 l)ook 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-

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 c<)m]>lete 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 3'ear. 
Notwithstanding the time thus taken from his college 
work in teaching, by applying himself continuously 
l)y night study while teaching and long hours of 
studj^ 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, 
by 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, lie entered the law department of 
the University of Michigan, located at Ann Arbor, 
Michigsn, 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 tlie exhaustive quizzing of the 
applicants for adrais.^ion to the Bar.

Mr. Monk passed a most satisfactory exaiuina 
tion and was duly congratulated Sy this august body 
of enuncnt men that composed the Michigan i"'.uj)reme 
Court. uj)on his succ -ss and thereupt)-.! ordered that 
a license to practice in all the courts of the state as 
an attorney, solicitor and coiuiselor 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. 
I'nivcrsity, an achiewment that has seldom if ever 
been surpa-sed. 

Mr. Monk being again out of funds, and it requir- 
ing funds to properly open a law office, he accepted 
the i)osition '>f Superintendent of Schoolsat Nevada, 
Iowa, that fortunately was offered to him at this time. 

Having comlucted the schools with success 
during the school year and havin.14 thus ol)tained the 
funds recjuired, heoi>ened a law office at I)es Moines, 
Iowa, and boing aided b>' the kind a.ssistance of 
Chief Justice C. C. Cole, of the Iowa Sujireme 
Court, the officers of the Citizens National Kank. 
and other clients, he obtained at once quite an ex- 
tensive law practice, and successfullx- conducteil a 
number of important suits in the various courts of 
the .state. 

During the \ear 1.S77. a gootl opening offering, 
he together with his brother. W. C. Monk, removed 
to St. Louis. Mo., and oi)ened law offices with the 
object of making real estate ami corporation law a 
specialty. The\' continued in business together with 
much success until 1J>.S2, when by over-application 
his constitution was completel>' broken down, and 
on the reconunendation of his ph\"sician he jjroceeded 
to seek the benefits of a milder climat, and out door 
life in Arizona. 

Arriving in Southern Arizona, he at once saw 
an oj)ening to obtain his ol>ject and in cooperation 
with his brothers located a cattle ranch, .gaining the 
control of a large body of government land, bv locat- 
ing upon the land and building cabins and stockin.i;

water coiisistir.g of springs that were to be found on 
the land and tlius in time they seeured control of a 
large tract of land, about twenty miles square, 
located near the railroad with good shi])])ing- facili- 
ties, and although the\- experienced considerable 
trouble with the rustlers (cattle thieves) and Indians, 
the business venture has ])een a success from the 
start. During the years of 18S2 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 tlian 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 ui the territory, 
Gen. Miles, who succeeded Gen. Crook in command 
of the troops in Arizona after a long cha.se, finally 
succeeded ui capturuig the Apache Chief Geronimo 
and his followers and brought the whole l)and 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 Kast, 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 6.)0(: or 7000 Indians who 
are .still supported more or le.ss by the United States 
(jovernment. 

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 staitlmg and unlawful incidents 
might be told of thier murders, train rob!;eries and 
depredations and injuries inflicted upon the ranch 
men located near this border country joining Mexico, 
on the South.

DiirinK the yciii> i - i 5 ami 6 the crimes com- 
mitted in thi-i section of the country by the Rnstkrs 
had l>ecome so nuni'-'rous and atrocious that the 
cowmen, miners and freiRhteis 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 Jndjje, together with prominent oowmen 
for Ptosecutin>» Attorney and Sheriff. After a most 
exciting canvass and election, the op]>osition 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; some 
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 
p' ration of this time. Tombstone and Cochise Co.. 
Arizona, was as peaceable and orderly as any section 
located in the Eastern states. 

During the year 1S')3, there ])eing a vacancy in 
the I'nited States Land Office at Tucson. Arizona. 
Judge Monk was appointed Receiver of the V. S. 
Land onice at Tucson by President Cleveland, and 
this oflice he held and filled with credit to himself 
and the (k)vernmenl for the term of four years. 
During his term of oflice many of the Oovernmenl 
Reservations upon whicli the various Army Posts and 
l-'ortshad 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 
Ik- given the sale at ( )M h'ctrt Orand Reservation. This 
Reservation is located on both banks of the San Pedro 
River, and on account of heavy and continued rains

the river overflowed its banks, and washed away all 
the bridges crossing- the river for nian.y miles in each 
direction from the old fort. As it was impossible by 
those wishing- to bid orally that were on the opposite 
side of the banks upon wliicli the sale was held by 
liim the written bid of the would-be-purchaser was 
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 maimer to the successful man, and although 
rather tedious work, most of the old fort was dispos- 
ed of before the sale was ended. > 

At this time Gov. Hughes of Arizona, appointed 
Judge Monk a Regent of University of Arizona, the 
school being quite small and not \-ery successful but 
under the new administration <ind the employment of 
new and efficient corps of professions, the University 
within a few years incroased so rapidly in eliiciencv 
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 tlie Commissioners of 
the United vStates Uand Office, as Disbursing Agent 
of the Land Office, and his appointment as Civil Ser- 
vice Examiner for Arizona by the Government, togeth- 
er as manager of the Monk Bros. Ranch, as vrell as 
his other duties pertaining to the Land 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 Lo-s Angeles, California, 
before doing so, however Judge Monk concluded to 
spend some months in .seeing the Old World and in 
June 19v00, sailed from New York on the Steamsliip 
Furst Bismark, Plamburgh-American Line for 
P'rance: He landed as Cherbough and .spent a few 
da.\-s in Paris visiting the Exposition and greatly en-

joying? the many and to liim then stranj-e sights and 
attractions to Ix? found in the one Parisof the world. 

In succession he visited Switzerland, crossed the 
Alps, twice, once l.y Siniplon I'ass, 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 alonpthe Riviera to Monte Carlo, 
visiting the Casino, the l.jrgest gainhling hall> in the 
world, where by placing a five franc i)iece on the 
Roulette table, he wrn fifty, and on the same day 
and hour many players lost their all, and to these 
life became a i)urden because the}' were never al)le 
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 l>e 
found still standing the old walls and the Collsseum 
of the old Roman Hmpire, thence south to Naples, 
on to Pompeii and to the top of Mt. Vesuvius. 
Thjnce across Italy to Florence to the famous Cam- 
panile, thtuce over to Venice, the city Iniilt on a 
thousand islands, with canaU for streets end you- 
dolas to convey the people across the city, engaging 
a gondola he pas.scd the Bridge of Sighs that crosses 
one of the canals; visiting the Grand Square of St. 
Mark. St. Mark':' Church, the wonder among the 
churches of Kuro])e. and other points of interest. 
Tlience he traveled north through (jermany to Ob-:r- 
ammergau where the famous Passion Play is seen 
for a season every t en years. 

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

"In the year 1633 the pe.st raged so fearfullv 
that in the parish of Kohlgrub (three hours fmm 
here; there were only two coup'es left, and a man 
named Casper Schuchler, coming here to visit hi-^ 
wife and child, fell l>y the roadside and was buried. 

"From that day to the eve of Siuion and 
Jud<- a i)eriod of three weeks, eighty-four peopK-

died of the plague; accordingl}', 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 Germany 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 Birthday, 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 hnden Strassa (nnter 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 interes-t 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

WirtemlKrp, the place of liis father's nativity', with 
the object in view to obtain whatever information 
that lie could discoxcr as to his ancestort' on his 
father's side. 

After a somewhat hasty and unsatisfactory in- 
vesti>;ation by incjuiiinj; of a number of ]K-rsons 
bearing: the name of Monk or Munk residinj^ in 
Stuttgart and tl:e vilhij^c of Constadt, nearby, as to 
facts relating to his ancestors, or an>' facts connected 
with their early history. He became satisfied that 
in the earlier K^'iK-'^Jf^PTy *^f the family, his j^reat 
grandfather erai>i:rated from England to Germany, 
changing the spelling of the name from the luiglish 
Monk to the German Moonk or NTunk, the German 
u having the same sound as the o or oo in the 
ICnglish. 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 ICngland, 
Scotland and Ireland, to South Hampton and thence 
by the Steamship New York, American Line, back 
to New Voik. 

Tlie 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 \'era 
Cruz and other points ai interest in the country. 
Then a summer trip through Alaska, to Sitka, jva^s- 
ing by the Muir Glacier and clinibing the Davidson 
Glacier and on his reiiuii trip passng through 
Juneau, to Skagaway, and White Pass, back to 
San Francisco. These with side trips to Yellowstone 
Park, Yosemite \'alley and the ("irand Canon of the 
Col(<rado. have provided him with the recreation 
and rest that his health demanded, and w iili renewed 
energy and strength he has located and opened a law 
office in the City of Los Angeles, California, where 
he has sufficient business to keep him well employed.

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,

Blue Lodge, the chapter, the council, the Command-

He is a member of Christ Episcopal Church of

After bein^- employed in that i)a]'er for o\er three 
years he took a jxtsition as foreman on tlu- Ambler 
(Pa.) (ia/.ette and later was einploved on the Phila- 
delphia Press, but lost his position by a strike of

later. He was ag-ain employed in the Harlevsvillc 
News office as foreman, the paper than beinjj- owned 
by the A. E. Dam!)ly estate, of Skippack, Pa., and 
about one year later, (m May 8, 1S')2 purchased the 
establishment from the estate. He was also foun- 
der of the Harleysville and Hattleld 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 
nothiiio- but g-ood 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 a'^,sociation 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 Montg-omery county that came out for 
Ouay in his memorable Irg-ht for control of the 
State Republican org-anization at a time when the 
Senator's iig-ht was a seeming-ly hopeless one. 

Air. Haldeman was elected an alternate deleg-ate 
from the seventh Cong-ressional District to the Re- 
publican National Convention held at St. Louis in 
1806 and was appointed a member of the County 
Execu'.ive Committee during- the same campaig^n. 

He is also a member of the Republican County

was a faithful wife and mother, cheerfully sharing- 
the struggles of earlier years to secure the best ojT-

a firm faith in the redeeming- love of our HcavenlV 
Father, she exemplified her christian faith to the

town, Pa. Air. Diehl attended the public schools 
at Ouakertown, Seidersville and Allentown until 
14 years of age, when he was apprenticed to learn 
the printer s trade in the office of Kev. S. K. Brobst. 
He had hardly finished his apprenlice>hip when he 
was j)laced in charge of the accounts of the various 
publications of the establishment. At the same 
time he was called upon to read proof and assume 
other similar duties. In 1872 he was taken into 
partnership ])y Rev. Brobst and till the end of 187() 
when the latter died, the firm title was S. K. Brobst 
& Co. The founder's son then became partner, the 
firm name changing to Brobst, Diehl & Co., this 
arrangement continuing- several years, when the 
subject of this sketch by purchase became the sole 
owner of the establishment, which is now publish- 
ing three periodicals and a list of books of nearlv

FIRST KOSENIiEKGER FAMILY REUNION. 



-o- 



Tlie first reunion of the Roseuberger family was 
held in Perkasie Park, Bucks County, Pa., on Thursday, 
Au<?ust 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 
l)egan to arrive, in veliicles of every description, from 
the surrounding districts of Bucks and Montgomery 
Counties, while the incoming trains brought hundreds 
more, until npwards of 1,500 descendants of the i)ioneer 
Henry Rosen berger were present. The iirrangements 
of the reunion were in charge of a committee wdio had 
been engaged for some time in the work of preparation, 
and the exercises were si(i;nally 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:oO a. ni.. when the chair- 
man. Prof. Seward M. Rosenlierger. of Qiudiertown, 
Pa., mounted the platform in the auditorium of the 
]iark and introduced Prof. Howard Freed, of Lansdale, 
Pa., as the first participant, who rendered a pleasing 
piano solo. This was fcdlowed by singing "All Hail 
the Power of Jesus' Name." and a fervent prayer was 
then offered by Rev. Gr. \V. Hengeii. of Perkasie. Pa., 
after which Prof. S. M. Rosenberger, of Quakertown. 
Pa., delivered the address of welcome, to which Hev. S. 
A. Ziegenfuss, I). D., of Gerniantown. Pa., responded in 
tin appropriate address in which he cited his connection 
with the family and congratulated the committee on 
the success of the undertalcing. 

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

Many td' u> have lui ddiiht awaited the appearance of 
this work witii a ^Mvat deal of interest. Varicms mattei-s 
have transpired witliin recent y«'ars to awaken our 
expectations to a ^M'eater or less de<i:ree, so that aiiv one 
connected with tlir liosenber«;er family, would, from 
time to time, find his feelin;,'s a«.,qtaled. his hopes excited 
and his desires deepened, as these mattt^-s relating to 
the Iiistory of the family took more definite shajie. 

The very first announcement from tlie Kditor call-

lii>tory of the pioneers and descendants of tlie luisen-

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 lineng.' 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 inferesting stiidv. 

As we scan the pages of this volume, we learn 'a gre;it 
many things that we had not known before. We gain 
a better insight into our family history, appreciatiTthe 
more fully the noble deeds, the pioneer work, rlie glori- 
ous achievements, the arduous self-denials, (he worthy 
examples and goodly heritage handed down to us l)"y 
our fathers. Our eyes are opened and our hearts are 
impressed as we ponder the character of our aiict'stors 
in their integrity, uprightness, honesty and nianlv 
virtues. Such consideration and reflection cannot fail 
to incite us in constantly putting forth the greatest 
efforts to prove ourselves the Avorthy descemhinis of 
noble sires. What man hath done man can do. It 
would be idle folly, therefore, for any one to presume 
to rest on the laurels of his progenitors. 

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

While we may reasonably expect that all oui- 
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 the volume 
a place on their library shelves, but will study its jiagcs 
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 properlv aii]u-ecinted. Fre- 
Cjueiit recurrences to its pages, and a constant looking 
up of its events and names will fill the mind with a 
proper knowledge of our genealogy, and eiuible us to 
speak intelligentily concerning tlie matters that are 
related to us so closely.
