with irS acres, is now owned and occupied by Amos 
Myers, a great-grandson. Other portions of the old 
homestead are now owned by Samuel B. Schisler,

I(f 



DESCKXDAXTS OF BARBARA MFA'I^R, 
DAUGHTER OF HAXS MEYER. 



II. Barbara Meyer (dec'd), b. about 1710 ; nird. 
Jolin Fretz. one of the pioneer ancestors of tlie numer- 
ous family of that name, who settled in Bucks county, 
Pa., soon after the first quarter of the eighteenth 
century, and wlio emigrated with his brother. Christian 
F'retz, and a third brother Tnanie unknown, who died 
on the voyage ), from near the city of Manheim, in the 
Grand Duchy of Baden, Germany, formerly known as 
the Palatinate, or Rhemish Pru.ssia. 

It is quite evident that the Fretz brothers landed 
at the port of Philadelphia, and in all probaltility 
arrived there some time between the years 1 700 and 
1720. It is said that they came to this country during 
v.hat was known as "the last persecution." They 
Were given the alternative of coiniecting themselves 
with the State Church or leave the country, and with 
many others of their countrymen they chose, rather 
than to give up their religious liberty, to leave the 
"Fatherland," the land of their birth, the homes of 
their kindred and friends, the graves of their ancestors, 
and all the hallowed associations of the home and 
coiuitry of their nativity, and found for themselves a 
home in a strange and far-off land where they could 
worship God " under their own vine and fig tree." ac- 
cording to tlie dictates of their own con.science without 
fear or molestation. They came about 30 or 40 years 
before the French and Indian war, when the country 
was but sparsely settled, the inconveniei\ces great, 
and the equally dangerous red man infcNted the land. 
They were .still living during the period when some 
of the great subjects, which eventually led to the war 
of the Revolution were being agitated, and their chil- 
dren were settled, with families during tlie blootly 
.struggle for independence. 



— 427— « 

It is not known where they at first settled. It is 
said that the\- came with the Meyer ancestors, and 
they, no doubt, settled somewhere hi Montgomery 
county for a time, and later permanenth' settled in 
Bitcks county. John Fretz located in what was then 
Plumstead township, but now Itedminster, on what is 
known as the old Fretz homestead, one mile northeast 
of Bedminsterville, now owned by Kly Fretz and 
occupied by his son, Malilon M. Fretz. The home- 
stead originally consisted of 230 acres of land, wliich 
■John Fretz purcha.sed of Bartholomew IvOngstreth in 
1737 or 1 7 38, for which he paid ,£,106. tlie release 
being given in the latter year in the month of May. 
The tract had a house, barn and other buildings, but 
was surrounded on all sides by vacant and unimproved 
wild land. 

John Fretz was a weaver by trade and was known 
as " Weaver John." Of his public services nothing- 
is known of especial interest, further than that he 
was one of the committee to form the new township 
of Bedminster in 1741. 

John Fretz and wife, Barbara, and their immediate 
descendants, were Metmonites and worshipped at 
Deep Run. first in the old log church, built about 
i7_}6, and later in the old stone church built atout 
1766, and which stood for over 100 years. They no 
doubt aided in erecting these churches, lx)th by con- 
tributing of their means and labor, and from the 
latter their remains were carried to their last earthly 
resting place in the cemetery adjoining. " May their 
ashes rest in peace until the trump of Gabriel shall 
awake the dead to come forth and obtain the inherit- 
ance of the faithful.' 

John Fretz died in 1772, probabl\- in Februar\'. 
His last will and testament was dated January 29, 
1772, and M-*s probated on March 3 of the same year, 
which shows he died between the two dates given. 
Tile provi^^ions of the will were that his sou Cliristian 
should have the farm and pay /,Si3o, and each of the 
children were to h.a\e ecjual shares, except the su.m of 
^60, which wa.^ to be tlistrilmted among tlic children 
of his first wife, and which came from their strand- 



-42S- ^ 

father (on the another's side. ) To the widow ( Maria, =J= 
his second wife) was willed ;{, loo, of which she was 
to receive tlie interest as long as she remained his 
widow. She was to have the house in which George 
White lived at that time. 

The children of John and Barbara Fretz were 
John, Jacob, Christian, Abraham, Elizabeth. 

III. John Fretz, b. Mar. 1730 ; d. May 4, 1826, aged 
96 years ; mrd. Mary Kolb ; dec'd), of Tinicum Twp., 
Bucks Co., Pa., in 1754. She was b. Sept. 10, 1730. 
He hved previous to and at the time of his father's 
death on the Tohickon, in Haycock Twp., Bucks Co.. 
where he owned and operated a mill. He afterwards 
moved below Doylestown, from where (in iSoo) he 
emigrated to Canada with all his family, except his 
daughter Barbara, wlio married Jacob Silvius and 
remained with her family in Bucks county, and Moses, 
who went to Carada the year pre\-ious. The journe}^ 
to Canada was in wagons and on foot. The old 
people rode and the younger members of the family 
walked. It is said that Mrs. Hippie carried her 
child all the way to Canada on foot. 

An incident occun-ed during the residence of 
John Fretz in Pennsylvania which undoubtedly in- 
dicates that in his sypmpathies he was more loyal to 
the British Cro.vn then to the American cause. It 
was during the early days of the Revolution. The 
patriot army being somewhat destitute of arms, the 
soldiers went from house to house collecting giuis for 
the army from the settlers. On coming to his house 
they asked for his gun. He took the weapo:i from its 
accustomed place and replied to the soldiers : '"Yes, 
you can have my gun, but I'll keep hold of the butt 
end of it." 

In iSoi the first Mennonite church was established 
in Canada, known as Moyer's church. Of t'.iis church 
he was ordained deacon in iSor, being tlie first 
deacon of the Mennonite church in Canada. Chil- 



*John Fret/, was twice rnarrieii. His second wife was

Moyer, of Campden, Ont.. Apr. 2, 1S74. Mr. Ritten- 
house received a common school education, attending 
school in the Winter months, and as soon as he was 
old enough worked on his father's farm in the 
Summer. Before he was quite 17 he obtained a cer- 
tificate to teach, and on January i, 1870, took charge 
of his first school. For over thirteen years he lal«ored 
in the scliool room until he was compelled to seek 
other occupation by failing health. At the age of 22, 
\vhile teaching a country school at the modest sum of 
$400 a year, he was married. Three years later he 
.secured an appointment to a jx)sition in the Central 
school of St. Catharines. Ont. After four years of 
hard work he was promoted to headmastership of the 
school. But the unceasing labor, the close confine- 
ment, and the loss of two of his children .so wore

Previous to his father's death Christian lived on 
what is known as the Isaac Fretz homestead in Tini- 
cum township. He was one of the executors of his 
father's estate, and inherited the old homestead in Bed- 
minster under the conditions mentioned in the will, 
and where he subsequently lived and died. To the 
homestead he added in 1793, by purchase from his 
son John, the tract known as the "Poor P'ields," 
which consisted of about thirty acres. 

In his day the Indians were yet quite numerous 
and often quite troublesome. It is related that he 
had a very fine hor.se to which the Indians took a 
particular fanc> and wanted to buy it, but he would 
not sell the animal. The Indians, however, deter- 
mined to lia\-e the horse, came by night and stole it. 
Some time after he ascertained wiiere the iiorsc was 
and went to the Indian camp. Arriving at e\-cning, 
and .seeing the horse turiK-d out to pasture, he con- 
cealetl him-^elf until slumber had falk-n upon the 



inhabitants of the wigwatn. The Indians had a cus- 
tom of just before retiring for the night to go outride 
of their wigwams, shout and make a great noise to 
frigliten away the wild beasts. Knowing tliis to be 
the signal for retiring he waited until he thought they 
were sound asleep, then entered the lt>t. secured tlie 
horse and retunied home witli it.

engaged in contract work and v/as one of tlie con- 
tractors to build the horse sh^ie curve of tlie Penn- 
sylvania Railroad over the Alleglieny mountains. 

Pie inlierited from his forefathers a stern «ense of 
duty, a loving, jovial disposition, together with a keen 
appreciation of a harmless joke, and an tinswer^ing 
directne.ss in following that which his con>cience 
deemed right. To write of him as he was known, is 
to write of the day by day life of the earnest, loving 
Christian, v;ho had at heart — first, his township, then 
his county, next his State, and finally "'The best 
country that God Almighty ever ga\-e to man." He 
was a man to feel for his neighbor in affliction, sick- 
ness and death, and to rejoice with him in pro>perity. 

In January 1845 fire broke out in the county 
buildings, and if it had not been for the prompt help 
of the neighlK)rs, under the lead of Mr. Fretz, no 
doubt lives would have been lost. About the Summer 
of 1S48 or "50, cholera being prevalent in many parts 
of the country, it broke out with great virulence at 
the Bucks County Almshouse, on which occa-^ion Mr. 
Fretz displa\-ed heroic courage and bravery In- labor-

New Britain church for several months, after which 
he taught school for ten months in Plymouth town- 
ship. Montgomery county, Pa. In 1S54 he taught a 
'term of school near Columbus. 

Having injured his eyes l^y too clo.se application to 
study, he consulted a physician connected with a 
college eye infirmar>-, commenced treatment, and after 
his .school term was compleied, In' the physician's 
suggestion and reconnncndatiuu, he couunenced the 
study of medicine. After attfuding a course and a 
'half of lectures and close reading until the Fall of 
1S46, he went to Jefferson Medical College at Phila- 
delphia, from which he graduated in March 1S57. 
During his time of study in Columbus, he had charge 
of the dissecting room and aided in the eye infirmary. 
These two circumstances gave him a taste for surgery 
and diseases of the eye. After graduating he re- 
turned to Columbus and connnenced to practice, 
giving especial attention to the eye and ear, though 
not abandoning the general practice. 

The war breaking out in iS6t, a call was made 
for medical men. He offered his services, and he and 
another stood equal (third) in the list of over fifty 
admitted to examination, yet he could be appointed 
assistant only. In the Summer campaign in West 
Virginia he had the entire work of the regiment until. 
Winter, when he had the first severe sickness of his 
life, and from which he probably never fidly recovered. 
The next Summer (1S62), foreseeing the same 
probable experience of all the work with part pay of 
Surgeon, he resigned. In a few days he was ap- 
pointed surgeon of the 95th Ohio Regiment, and was 
immediately sent to the field in Kentucky. On 
August 30, 1862, the regiment engaged in the battles 
of Richmond, where a large part of them were killed, 
wounded and captured. He was six weeks in the 
enemies' hands with the wounded, when they were 
returned paroled to Columbus in October and prepared 
for the work of 1863 down the Missis.-.! ppi Ri%-er and 
the siege of Vieksburg, in all oi wliicli Dr. Gill 
participated. After that campaign and the second 



~\ 



— 45'S — 

attack of Jackson, Miss., they spent the Fall and 
Winter in scoutin.c^ and doin.:? guard duty. 

He applied for permission to appear before the 
United States Medical Board for examination for 
Surgeon of Volunteers, a higher position than surgeon 
of a regiment, though of the same rank (Major of 
Cavalry). A ten-days' examination satrshed the 
autliorities and he received his commission from 
Abraliam Lincoln. He was at oi;ce sent to the 
Atlantic campaign and very early assigned as Surgeon 
in Chief of th.e First Division, 20th Army Corps, of 
Gen. Joe Hooker's fighting corps. This position he 
held to the close of the war, finishing the Atlantic 
campai.gn, the famous march to the sea, the Carolina 
campaign, and so on to the .great review at Washing- 
ton in 1S65. He went with the Western troops west 
to Louisville, Ky., and was honorably mustered out 
in x\ugust 1S65. 

The Fall of 1S65 he spent in traveling and the 
Winter at Jefferson Medical College. In Ma>- 1S66 
he sailed for Europe, where he s^jcnt two years of 
hard study in ht^spitals — sixte-en months in Germany, 
the remainder of the time in Paris, Geneva, London, 
and returned to New York in May 1S6S, and resumed 
the practice of his profession at St. Louis in October 
of the same year. He was associate-editor of the 
St. Louis "Medical and Surgical Journal " until 1S73, 
when at the solicitation of friends he removed to 
Jerseyville, 111. About 1875 the degree of A. M. was 
conferred on Dr. Gill by McKendree College, Lebanon, 
111., and the degree of L. L. D. by the University of 
Wooster, O.. in 1.SS5. the medical department of 
which was located at Cleveland, O., where he was 
living and lecturing in the medical college, occupying 
the chair of clinical surgery. In iSSt he was ap- 
pointed physician to the Southern Illinois Peniten- 
tiary, where he did some of his best work. In March 
1S65 he received tlie first Brevit ( Lieutenant Colonel) 
of any medical officer from the State of Ohio. From 
Chester, 111.. (Southern Illinois Penitentiary) he was 
urged to take the chair of surgery in the medical 
department of the University of Wooster at Cleveland,

O., which pojition he filled for over two years, when 
he resigned, aud in October iSSu removed to Eldorado, 
Kan., having at that time just completed his work on 
"Diphtheria, Croup and Tracheotom}-," a work 
which cost him much labor. 

In the Spring of 1S55 Dr. Gill joined the Meth- 
odist Episcopal church of v/hich he has been a member 
ever since, and held every official position up to 
president of the Lay Electoral Conference of Southern 
Illinois in 1SS3. In November 1S94 h.e removed to 
Pittsburg, Kan., and has limited his practice to eye, 
ear, nose and throat. Children : (VII) Amos Carpen-

the North Wales Institute, where he remained about 
a )-ear. In the F^all of 1862 he began teaching, and 
taught successively at the Deep Run. Rocky Ridge, 
Algard, Seller.sville, and Plumsteadville schools. In 
1868 he took charge of the West Bethlehem schools,

of the Coplay .schools, same county. In Jinie 18S3 he

took charge as principal and supervisor of the Lehigh- 
ton borough sch.ools, and later as principal at 
Wyoming. Pa. He is at present coimected with the 
Temple College, Philadelphia. 

Through all these years of teacliing there is one 
idea tl)at has never "oeen lost sight of. namely : that of 
.self-improvement. The schooling at the academy was 
only the beginning of a life of study. In 1876 he 
appeared before the State Board of Examiners, pa.ssed 
the examination and was granted a Normal certificate 
as teacher of didactic. He found nuich pleasure in 
pursuing a course of general studies, in science and 
language,- and in 1S77 Franklin and Marshall College

county in which he has not been callc-d to execute 
the.se appointments. 

Being a member of the Reformed church he took

She would crack nuts in the house, and say to the

Bedminster. The farm, consisting of 255 acres, he 
inherited from his father. He was an honest, upright 
citizen, a conscientious christian, and much esteemed 
by the community in which he lived. 

It is related that while working in the field one 
day a man rode up, and seeing his fine cow- wanted 
to buy one. but he did not want to sell. The man, 
however, in-i.-ted and a^ked hiui to set a price. He 
then thought that if he would ask double what the 
cov*- was worth the man would leave without buying. 
But contrary to his expeciation the man laid down 
the money and drove the cow oft. After tlie man was 
gone he talked the matter over with his wife and they 
decided it was " usury." He mounted a iior.-^e, rode 
after the man and gave him !>ack half of tlie money, 
.saying : "I don't want tu I-e damned for a c-..w." 

He and wife were members of the Mennonite 
church at Deej) Run, of wliich he was a deacon for

in Hilltown and continued teaching in that township 
for three succes.sive terms. In the Spring of 1874 he 
returned to MiHers\ille and remained one term. In 
the Fall he was examined by County Superintendent 
Knauss, of Lehigh county, and granted a provisional 
certificate with No. i in every branch. He was there- 
up<m elected principal of the schools of Rittersville, in 
that county. After teaching there several months he 
wa;s granted a professional certificate. In the Spring 
of 1875 he once more returned to Millersville and 



~4S7-- 

reniairied to finish his course, grachiating in ihe class 
of '76. He graduated with the degree of Bachelor of 
the Elements, and had conferred upon him one of the 
honors of his class. In the I'"all he took charge of a 
school at Breinigsviile, Lehigh county. During this 
term he gained prominence among the teachers of the 
county. At the teachers' institute of that year he 
was made secretar>- of the institute, appointed to open 
the discussion o!i one of the topics, chosen delegate 
to the State Teachers' Association, and selected as 
one of the evening lecturers. In the Fall of 1S77 he 
took charge of a school in East Donegal township, 
Lancaster county. During this time he gave some 
attention to public lecturing, appearing among other 
audiences before the Page Literary Society of Millers- 
ville. At the commencement of '78 he received from 
his Alma Mater the degree of Master of tlie Elements. 
In the Fall of that year he was elected teacher of the 
intermediate department of the Doylestown borough 
public schools, and before the close of the term was 
made principal and borough superintendent. 

In the Sunnner of 1879, after winning golden 
testimonials as a teacher, he left the school room and 
turned his face in the direction of the legal profession. 
He entered the ofhce of Alfred Fackenthall, Flsq., of 
Dovlestown, and was duly registered as a student at 
law. In iSS[ he was admitted to the Bucks County 
Bar and at once entered upon the practice of law at 
the county capital. In the Spring of 18S5 Doyles- 
town borough elected him Justice of the Peace by an 
overwhelming majority, wlitn his party was hope- 
lessly in the minority. The same year he was 
admitted to the Bryant Literary I.'nion of New York, 
and again he entered the lecture field. For several 
years he appeared before county teachers' institutes 
and other distinguished audiences, and won the 
strongest testimonials. At the commencement of '86 
I'rsinus College conferred upon him the degree of 
Master of Arts. 

From the time he turned to the law he has been 
closely identified with politics, and has been on the 
stump for his party in every campaign. He has been 



an ardent belie\-er and zealous worker in the Republi- 
can League of the United States, and has bcfU 
signal!)' honored 1>y that organi:^ation. He was presi- 
dent of the Doylestown League three years, delegate 
from the Doylestown League to the State Convention 
four times, delegate fronl the State League to the 
National Convention three times, and Pennsylvania 
member of the National League exeeutive connnittee 
two years. For five years he has beeti Notary Public 
and for four years clerk of Doylestown Town Council. 
For thrte years he was chairman of the Bucks County 
Republican Connnittee. He was one of the founders 
of the " Repubhcan " Printing Company, and is 
secretary of the conn>iny. 

In tlie political campaign of js^^the Republicans 
of Bucks county overwhelmingl>' demanded liis nomi- 
nation for District Attorney, though he did not 
seek the ofhce, and there were other candidates 
contesting for the honor, with much reluctance he 
yielded to the popular wish and accepted the nomi- 
nation. No sooner had he entered the arena than the 
opposition concentrated their fight upon him and 
fought him with bitterness and desperation. Fie 
emerged from the fight in triumph and entered upon 
the duties of the office. 

In religion he is a Presbyterian. He has been an 
active worker in the Sunday .scliool and an ardent 
believer in the Christian Endeavor Society. Pie 
has figured prominently as a speaker at public gather- 
ings. In 1890 he delivered the annual addre.ss before 
the literar>' -ocictics at the Miliersville State Normal 
School and Ursinns College. He still resides at 
Doylestown, where he assiduously pursues his .several 
lines of work. One child : ( jrace.

Tin- FIRST FRKTZ FAMILY RKUXIOX 



BY CD. FRETZ, M. D. 



The first reunion of the Fret/, faniih- was held 
in the grove adjoining the old F'retz homestead, 
iiear.Bedniinsterville. Pa., September 15. 1S8S. The 
descendants of tlie pioneers, John and Christian Fretz, 
came in large numbers. Nearly all the eastern coun- 
ties of Pennsylvania were represented, as well as th.e 
States of Ohio, Kan>as, New Jersey and the District 
of Columbia. More than 500 of their descendants 
registered their names, and many were there who did 
not register. Tlu: number present was estimated at 
from So*:) to 1000. The oldest descendant present was 
Mrs. Susanna Funk, of Line Lexington, being S6 
years old. She is the daughter of Martin Fretz, 
deceased, of Hilltown township. Philip K. F'ret/., of 
Bedminster ; Flenrs' Fretz, of Plumstead ; Mrs. Eliza- 
beth FYetz F-arren. of Doylestown, and John Henry 
Garges, of Washington, D. C. , were among the oldest. 
The ministers of the Gospel were Re\-. Allen ^F Fretz, 
of Kedminsler ; Rev. A. J. Fretz, of Milton, N. J., 
and Rev. Fnos Loux, of Dublin. The tnetlical pro- 
fe:-.~i(;n v.as repre.sented by Ijr. Harvey Kratz. of New 
Britain ; Dr. A. F. Myers, of Blooming Glen ; Dr. 
O. H. Fretz, of Ouakertown : Dr. A. N. Fretz, of 
Fleetwood. Berks county ; Dr. C. D. Fretz, of Sellers- 
ville, and Dr. John H. Fretz, of Hagersville. The 
only representative of the legal prufes-ifju was J. Free- 
man Hendricks, Fsq. , of Dnyk-stown. County Super- 
intendent W. H. vSlotter, of Doylestown, represented 
the educational intere>ts. The mass was made up of 
the sturdy yeoman, who for a century and a half has 
gi\-en character to the family liy their integrity and 
moral worth. 

The committee oi arrangements had ma<le ample 
j^rejxarations. A tabic tSij feet long was constructed, 



upon wliich the ladies were en.!;a,c;ed during the fore- 
noon in transferring the contents of many well filled 
baskets and boxes. When the dinner hour arri\-cd 
and a general in\itatit.in to all was extended b\- the 
chairman, the audience as generously responded, and 
not until the table had been fdled and cleared three 
times were all the hungry satisfied. A speakers' stand 
had been erected, in front of which were placed 
benches and chairs for the audience, and on one side 
was placed an organ, presided over by Miss Ida Moyer. 
The musical part of the program was conducted by 
Dr. A. F. Myers. The exercises of the forenoon 
were opened by singing the coronation hymn from 
printed slips. This was followed by a fer\-ent prayer 
bv Rev. A. J. Fretz. The address of welcome was 
then delivered by Rev. Allen M. Fretz. J. Freeman 
Hendricks, Esq., of Do\lestown, addressed the 
audience very felicitoush- for some time, when the 
exercises of the forenoon were closed by singing the 
patriotic hynni, "America." The time between the 
exercises was taken up in social converse and in 
registering the names of the descendants present. Dr. 
John H. Fretz, who had been appointed as register, 
was kept busily engaged during the interval. 

The afternoon exercises were opened by singing 
the hymn, "Come, thou Fount of every Blessing." 
Rev. A. J. Fretz then deUvered the historical address, 
which was listened to with profound interest. He 
graphically depicted the surroundings when the two 
brotliers, John and Chri.stian Fretz, driven forth from 
their fatherland by cruel persecution, sought refuge in 
this far-off land, this wilderness, inhabited b}' wild 
beasts and the equally dangerous red man. The 
genealogy of the different branches of the family were 
briefly given, and othei- data. Dr. A. N. Fretz, of 
Fleetwood, then gave a sliort talk, after which County 
Superintendent Blotter delivered the memorial address. 
After .some announcementfi and tlie singing of a hynm, 
"There's a Land tlu* is Fairer than Day." the 
exercises were clo-^ed with the ben.ediction and the dox- 
ology, " Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow." 



ADDRESS OF WKLCOME. 



DELIVERKD P.V RF.V. ALI.HX .M. FRKTZ, AT FRKTZ 
RKUXIOX, SKPTKMBHR IS, lS8S. 



Dear friends, in appearing before you this 
moniing Lo uid nou welcome on this occasion, I feel 
that mine is a pleasant duty indeed. It is a pleasant 
duty — first, because I trust that all who have now 
assembled before me, as well as all who may be here 
later in tlie day, ha\'e come with an assurance of the 
fact that they are welcome. Further, it is a pleasant 
duty for me to stand between the fathers of almost 
two centuries ago whose dust now lie mingled with 
the earth in yonder graveyard, and their numerous 
descendants, of which I ha^-e the honor of being one, 
to bid you WL-lcouie to the first general reunion of tlie 
Fretz faniih-. Less than two cen.turies ago these 
teeming valley's and verdant hills were mostly forests, 
and were with this grove in which we have assembled 
to-day the home of the red man, while the beasts of 
the forests vitd with him in finding a sustenance. 
The remains of our ancestors lie side by side in soil 
not their own b>- birth, auii we visit their graves at 
times to call our memories back to their daring lives, 
while the ashes of the Aborigines have entered into 
the .soil from which we reap our beautiful harvests and 
obtain our sustenance. In the early years of the 
eighteenth century came emigrants from Kngland, 
Scotland and German}-, and took posse.ssion of the 
land in this vicinitw It was then that, among the 
many others, two brotliers. John and Chri>tian Fretz, 
left their homes and friends in the fatlierland and for 
weal or woe crossed the wide perilous Atlantic, aiul 



— 5"9 — 

came to this new world, the refuge for the oppressed 
and persecuted of ever}- civih/.ed country. 

In course of time Christian became ])ossessor of 
land in Tinicum township. al>out three miles from 
here, while Joliu made his purchase and future home 
on a tract in Bedminster township, of which the soil 
on which we mee!: to-day is r. part, and v/hich has 
since been continuously in the possession of Ins male 
descendants to this day. In these hon:!es the Lord 
prospered tliem till now their descendants are no 
longer confined to the townships of Bedmin.ster and 
Tinicum, but have increased and multiplied and 
spread abroad until now they may be found in almost 
every vSiaie and Territory through the length and 
breadth of this fair land, and in ^■arious parts of 
Canada as well. 

This is an age of reunions. Alunuii of schools 
and colleges have reunions, the veterans of tlie late 
war have reunions, families have reunions, and it is 
well that the descendants of these two brothers should 
have such a gathering also. During the brief time 
allotted for preparation there were sent out to all 
Fretz descendants, whose nam^s and addresses could 
be a.scertained, invitations to meet with us at this re- 
union, to renew the memories of our ancest<Jrs and 
become better acquainted with each other as offspring 
of a common ancestry. I do, therefore, in memory 
of our fathers, bid you welcome to this a.ssembly. In 
behalf of the present proprietor of this grove I bid you 
welcome. In the name of the conunittee of arrange- 
ments 1 bid you welcome. I bid you welcome to the 
exercises that will be conducted here to-day, and to 
the common tal.)le that will be spread for dinner. Let 
us make this a day of profit as well as of pleasure. 
While our memories are refreshed with, the daring and 
self-denial of our ancestors, let us take an example 
from their devotedness to the cause for which they 
forsook their native land — religious liberty, and culti- 
vate true irlial love and devotedness to one another. 
Above all, let us lift our hearts in thankfulness to 
God, the giver of every good and perfect gift, for his 
ble>sing-^ upon our ancestors, upon our immediate 



fathers and mothers, and nr>on us to the present 
moment. Let us tmitedly pray that he may eontinue 
to be with us and l>less us as lie has been with our 
fathers and blessed them. Let us seek so as to li\e 
in his fear and to glory in his great name, that in the 
great and final family reunion we may all be privileged 
to participate. That we, having heeded tlie lo\-ing 
invitation, may be reunited with our friends gone 
before, and with them forever sliare the joys of a 
reunion inseparable.

BY C. D. FKKTZ, M. D. 



The second reiniion of the descendants of Joh.n 
and Christian Frd/, was lield in the grove near the 
old homestead, in Bedniinster township, on Saturday. 
September 2, 1893. Tlie early morning gave hui 
faint prospects for a pleasant day, owing to the stormy 
aspects of the \veather. Nevertheless, by 1 1 o'clock 
several hundred persons were gath.ered about tlie 
speakers' stand, when Rev. Allen M. Fretz, of Souder- 
ton, chairman of the reunion connnittee, called th.e 
meeting to order. The day's exercises were ushered 
in by the singing of the magnificent hymn, "Come. 
Thou Almighty King ; " Dr. A. Myers, of Blooming- 
Glen, nuisical director. N'ext followed tlie invocation 
by Rev. Thoma> S. Fretz. of Le\^•isburg, Pa. Reed 
Fretz, of Bedminstcr, then, in a few words, welcomed 
the as5end)led to the home of their ancestors, which 
had fostered then) in their hour of need. This was 
verv felicitouslv res]ionded to IjvProf. Alva B. Fretz. 
of Cedar Grove. X. J. Rev. Allen M. Fretz th.cu 
proceeded to deli\er the memorial address. Worthy 
did he enumerate the brave deeds of Ins forefather>. 
who lie resting in the old graveyard at Deep Run. 
hoping they might be enudated b\ their descendants 
and their memories forever held sacred. The singing 
of the coronation liynm closed the first part of the 
program, after which all were invited, to partake of tl:e 
bounteous repast pr'.:pared by the ladies' connnittee. 
Ample justice was done to this pleasing feature of the 
program. The table, about 200 feet h^ig, .spread with 
various varieties to sati.-^fy the most fastidious, was a 



— 512 — 

novelty to see. Tlie conmiiltee on reoistration. con- 
sisting of Messrs. J. Franklin Fret/, Oscar Fret;: 
and Joseph Myers, were busily engaged with the 
register, in which descendants present inscril)ed their 
names. In the meantime the cloudy moriiing was 
transfornied into a beautiful afternoon, and crowds of 
people hastened to the grove until tb.e nuniljer was 
swelled to alsoiit 2000. P'romptly at 2 o'clock all 
gathered once more around the platform, \\hen the 
entire assemblage broke forth with tlie patriotic strains 
of " ■^[y Country 'tis of Thee," whicli were echoed 
and reechoed among the rings of the forest. After 
the singing J. V. Hendricks, Esq., of Doylestown, 
addressed the assemblage. He spoke of the integrity 
and honesty of V'viiich. the family had always been 
noted since the first ancestor. Mr. Hendricks' speech 
was followed by a l)eautiful solo, rendered by Miss 
Florence E. Newbaker, of Philadelphia, entitled 
" My Father's Home." A short essay was then read 
by J. Kirk Leatherman, M. E., of Lullytown, Pa. 
Anotlier pretty solo was sung by Miss Mary H. FVetz, 
of Milton, N. J., entitled " Dream of the Old Home," 
after which Count}' Sup-.-riiUendent William H. Blotter 
addressed the audier.ce in a few words. This was 
followed by another hymn, ' ' Nearer my God to Thee. ' ' 
The faniil>' historian, Rew A. J. F'relz. of Milton, 
N. J., wa^ then introduced, wlio held the audience 
enraptured for .some time. Tiie meeting then ad- 
journed after singing, " Praise Ciod from W'lujtn all

HISTORICAL ADDRIvSS. 

DKLIVERFD AT THE SECOND REUNION OF THE FRETZ 

FAMILY, AT EED.MINSTER, SFtPTEMBER 2, 

1S93, BY REV. A. J. FRETZ. 



[Revised Extracts.] 
This is indeed an auspicious day to be assembled 
here on almost consecrated ground for two reasons — 
first, because this was the home of an ancestor who 
came from the old world to the new, settling here 156 
years ago, and founded a family now numbered by 
the thousands, scattered over this broad land from 
the Atlantic to the Pacific, with numerous represen- 
tatives in Canada ?nd some in other countries. Here 
finished his work and ended his earthly pilgrimage, 
one who've memory we shall ever revere and cherish 
for his bravery, fidelity and patriotism. Second, 
because here are assembled such a numerous a:>mpany 
of descendants of our worthy ancestors, John and 
Christian Frctz, to recount .some events in the lives of 
these devoted fathers of more than a century and a 
half ago, and to extend greetings to one another in 
the common bonds of kmsh.ip to render praise and 
thanksgiving to Almighty God, who directed the 
steps of the ancestors hither. We are here also, if 
possible, 10 learn more concerning the early ancestors. 
to gather together the remaining fragments of their 
history, incidents of their lives of interest, and that 
will be highly prized by generations yet imborn. 
Family histories atid genealogies are works of great 
value and mucli interest to the descendants, and they 
become more and more so as time passes on. Their 
sayings, acts, privations, early struggles, the final snc- 



— 514 — 

cesses, traditiriiis aiul Iiistory of tlie ancestors, so often 
recounted ]\v ihe grandfatliers raid grandmoth-crs. can- 
not fail to be of interest, and these tilings should he 
put in a form for permanent preservation. Thiere will 
come a time, generations hence, when these things 
will be of incalculable value. It is remarkably strange 
that there are so many who do not care for these 
things and take so little intere->t in them, to such an 
extent that tlK-y do not know wlio their grandparents 
were. 

According to a tradition of the family the 
ancestors, John and Christian i-"retz, witii a third 
brother who died on the voyage, came from near 
th.e city of Manheim, Pro^•ince of Baden, Gennany, 
formerly known as the Palatinate, or Rhemish l-riissia, 
and therefore undoubtedly were of German nationality. 
Although during the persecuiion of the Mennonites 
in Switzerland ])y the Calvinist>, many of them fled 
across the line into the Palatinate, where they remained 
for a time, and afterwards emigrated to America. 
Many of tliesc Swiss Mennonitts from the Palatinate 
were among the early settlers of Bucks and Mont- 
gomery counties, among them, if the traditioti of the 
family can be relied on, were the Meyer ancestors. 
It is said that the Fretz ancestors emigrated to America 
during the " last persectition "" and came in company 
with tiie Meyer ancestors, who settled in MoiUgomery 
county. 

The Meyer ancestors of Montgomery couiuy were 
Christian and Hans Meyer. Hans Meyer, as we 
have recenltv- learned, was tl:e father-in-law of our 
pioneer ance-^t<'r. John Fret/.. They emigrated to 
America in the early part of the eighteenth century, 
and thus we find th.em settled, here :n the infancy of 
the great commonwealth of i\'nn-ylvania years before 
the French and Indian war. and long l)efore the 
United States l^iecame a free aiui independent nation. 
Some of the stirring scenes in the colonies tor.k place 
during their lifetime, and as rlie earthly pilgrimage of 
the aged ancestors l)egan. to draw to a cl'>-e the 
colonists became restless un-ler tiie British yoke, and 
barelv had tlie pioneers gone to tlieir rest befi re tl;e 



\var f(n- ii'.dvpeiulcii.'^e i)Urst forth, v.-liich l^roiiglit llu- 
freedom which their ch.ildreti now enjoy. 

The }*'ret/. bnjth.er.s married their wives on 
American s )il, and here all their childien were lx>rn. 
At the time of the ]>i;blication of the Kretz history it 
was not known who either of the Fretz ancestors 
married. We were foitunate, however, in otir in- 
vei^tigations into the Meyer family qnite recently, to 
di.-^covcr the fact that John Fretz married for his first 
.wife Barbara, daughter of Hatis Meyer, of Upper vSal- 
ford, Montgomery Co. , and thus is happily di.scovered a 
missing link, which enables those who are descendants 
by tliis marriage, to go one generation back of the 
Fretz ancestr}-. The fact is now established that our 
first ancestor on American soil was Hans Meyer, of 
Upjier Salford. This, no doubt, is a surprising reve- 
lation to many of you here to-day, who have never so 
much as dreamed that yon were Meyer descendants. 
But it i.> a h.appy revelation to us, as it lirings us into 
closer and dearer relation to the many descendants of 
Hans Meyer, who are scattered all through Bucks and 
Montgomery counties and elsewliere. This discovery 
gives us a possible clue to wh.cre John Fretz at first 
settled before purchasing the homestead at Bedminster, 
and which was no doubt somewhere in Montgomery 
county, and wdiere all the children by the first wife, 
except Elizabeth Kulp, were probably b")rn. Kc 
probably settled for a time in that county, then in 
1737 or 173S purchased tlie homestead in Bedminster, 
on which we are to-day as.sembled, of Bartholomew 
Longstreth. consisting of 230 acres, and for which, he 
paid /^io6. This tract, when purchased, had a house 
which was probably of logs, a barn and other out- 
buildings, but was surrounded on nil sides by a 
wilderness of vacant and unimproved land. Here the 
pioneer .sojourned until the close of his earthly pil- 
grimage, improving his home and f<~)ll<nving his voca- 
tion of weaving, wliich may have been his principal 
occuj^ation in his later years. 

The last will and testament of Joh.n Fretz was 
dated Jan nar\' 20. 1772, wns prniaud M.'.rch 3 of tin; 
-sajue s'car, wliich .--"Mows tliat he died between the 



— 516- 

tvvo dates given, probably in February 1772. Several 
of his children were also weavers, wliich they no 
doubt couii:>ined with other occupations. John lived 
for some years after marriage in Tinicuni township, 
and was also a weaver. At the time of his father's 
death, in 1772, he was a resident of Haycock town- 
ship, on the Tohickon, where he run a mill. After- 
wards he moved to Doylestown, and in iSoo, when 
70 years old, he emigrated with his family to Canada. 
His son Mo.ses went out to Canada the year previous, 
and his daughter Barbara (wife of Jacob Silvias) 
remained in Bucks county. 

John Fretz was one of the leading spirits in 
founding the first Mennunite cliurch in Canada, of 
which he was the first deacon. He died in 1826, 
aged 96 years. His descendants are very numerous, 
most of them residing in Canada, but many are in the 
Western and other p<-irtions of the United States. 
Among them are prominent ministers of the Metho- 
dist Episcopal, iVlennonite, Baptist, and other churches. 

Jacob Fretz at first lived near F'rwinna, in Tini- 
cuni township, on what is known as the lirvine farm, 
he having sold it to a man of that name who was also 
a weaver. The family suffering from malaria he 
afterwards purchased a farm in Bed minster township, 
along the Tohickon. v;here his son Josepli, known as 
" Big Joe." lived and died. Christian Fretz was a 
farmer. He inherited tiie old homestead in Bed- 
minster, on which he lived and died, and to which he 
added by purcliase from his son John the tract known 
as the " p<')or fields," consisting of about 2^ acres. 
He was a wealthy man and reared a large family. 
His descendants are very numerous, numbering about 
2000 living, with over 500 deceased. 

Abraham F"retz was also a weaver and lived on a 
farm at Fretz \'alley, in Bedminster township, now 
owned by Philip K. Fretz, a grandson, and Reed 
Fretz, a great-grandson. 

Elizabeth Fretz married Jacob Kolb, a farmer. 
They lived and died in Hilltown township, where 
mativ of their descendants still live. 



To the ancestors, John and Christian Fretz, we 
owe a debt of gratitude for tlieir iniflindiin;^ faiih in 
God, fidehty to His cause and for their bravery. It 
was no small matter for the ancestors to leave their 
homes in the far-olT fatherland, to brave the perils of 
the ocean, and to endure the hardships and incon- 
veniences incident to their settlement in the new 
world, in the vast wilderness of America, where they 
erected their log cabins, surrounded on all sides by 
wild beasts and treacherous savages. But pressed on 
account of their religion, persecuted in the land of 
their nativity on account thereof, with sincere devotion 
to God and conscience, they dared to brave the perils 
of land and sea to find a home where they would at 
least be untrammeled in tlie worship of God, a privi- 
lege so dear to the hearts of all Cod's people. 

What thoughts must have crowded upon their 
minds as they looked for the last time upon familiar 
scenes ^around them, as they stood at the graves of 
beloved dead ones for the last time, joined in prayer 
and song, and listened to the word of God in the old 
parrish church for the last time in the land of their 
nativity, spoke their last farewell to loved ones at 
home, clasped the hand of father and embraced 
mother for the last time with eyes dinuned with tears 
and the tongue of utterance choked with emotion, and 
turned their backs upon th.e old home and fatherland, 
and faced towards the new. How their hearts must 
have sank within them, when, tossed upon the bosom 
of the old ocean, they consigned the body of a brother 
to a deep and watery grave. 

The ancestors and their immediate descendants 
were plain and unpretentious folks of the Mennonite 
faith, chief!}- occupied as weavers, farmers and millers, 
in which occupation they were successful. For several 
generations the family produced no profe.ssional men. 
But later generations have not been confined to the 
workshop atid farm. They have graced every walk 
in life, and represented every profession. In th.e 
school room, in journalism, in medicine, at the l>ar, 
on the platform, in legislative halls, and in the pulpit, 
thev have won renown. Tliev ha\-e st(K)d in the 



-5iS — 

ranks of the soldier in tlie nation's hour of peril, 
wielded the sword, and died upon bloody fields of 
battle in defense of country and home. 

In conclusion let me say that we, as our ancestors 
did, are also making history— history that will have 
more or less influence upon our children and descend- 
ants after us. That we may have uotliino- to regret 
let us make a clean history, and leave only an influence 
for good upon those we leave behind us to tread the 
winej->ress of life after wc are gone. Then in the great 
day when all history will be a finished work, and the 
final gatherings of the nations be, with our ances- 
tors and our descendants, we may gather in one 
final reunion, and that our Heavenly Father may 
welcome us, own us, and crown us citizens of his 
eternal Kingdom.

the evening he left his home on foot to transact .some 
business with a neighbor. He did not return at the 
expected hour, and about midnight member.^ of tl»e 
family went to the place lie had intended to visit and 
learned lie had not been there. A search.ing part\- 
inunediately started over the route supposed to have 
been taken. Between 2 and 3 o'clock liis lifeless 
body was found in a shallow pond of water in his own 
woods, about fifty rods from his house. His watch 
and money were missing. Further investigations 
confirmed the theory that he was murdered.

.sold out by the Sheriff and lost all he had paid on the 
place, .leaving a debt besides, which, however, he 
paid as soon as lie was able. This showed the 
honesty atul christian principle he possessed. 

In May 1S25 he, his wife and family (excepting 
their son Abraham, who had gone two months 
previous) in a company emigrated to Waterloo county, 
Ont., and settled in the \voods two m.iles south of the 
pre.sent village of Breslin, near the banks of the Grand 
River, where he died. On October 15, 1829, while 
they were out logging, their little log hou-^e caught

which was the old Moyer Bilile containing th.e records 
of his father's family. Children : Abraham, Jacob,

1 86 1. The early part of his life was spent with his 
father oti a farm near Kos.suth, where l:e obtained a 
common school education. It was soon discovered, 
particularly by his fath-.-r, that farming had no great 
chaniis for him, in consequence of which he was .sent 
to college. After graduating Mr. Moyer taught 
school tor a short time. The compensation of this, 
however, was not compatible with liis ambition, and 
at the age of 21 he was engaged by his uncle, S. S. 
Moyer. button manufacturer in Berun. as traveling 
salesman, which position he held for three years. 

Like many other energetic Canadians, Mr. Moyer 
emigrated to the L'nited States, where success was 
po.ssible to a degree not so limited as in Canada. _IIi^ 
first position was with Darling & Scholes, of Biittalo. 
N. Y., importers of clothiers' trimmings, which he 
served for four years in the capacity of senior sales- 
man, traveling in all parts of the United States with 
success characteristic of ardency and probity. Sub- 
sequently Mr. Moyer effected a substantial connection 
with the U. B. Schantz Co., Rochester, N. Y., manu- 
facturers of buttons, and represented tliis firm for a 
period of five years, traveling betwee:: St. Louis and 
Wasliington, D. C. January i, 1896. he di,->posed off 
his interest in the abo\-e firm, abando!ied tb.e road and 
locate^A in Buffalo, X. Y.. devoting his time to real 
estate and his private interests.

OiiL., Oct. 3, 1836 ; mrd. F.li/.abeih, eldest dan. of the 
late Williaui Ardagh, of Toronto, Oat., May ^^, I:^6S. 
When about i year old his parents moved on a bush 
farm, wliere he speut his early years, working on the 
farm in Suniraer and going to school iu the Winter. 
l>eing a boy ui more tlian ordinary pluek and intelli- 
gence he. was qualified and cotuaicnced teaching public 
school at the early age of 15 years, and spent fuur or 
five years teaching in Winter and as.-^isting en the 
farm in Stunmer. 

When abxiut 20 years of age he was convened in 
a Methodist revival meeting at Berlin, which v\a.s the 
means of changing the whole teiior and amlr'tion of 
his after life. Having a strong desire to do v. ::at lie 
could for his lellowmen he scon after commenced to 
perform the duties of a local preacher. Later he 
attended Victoria University i, then located at Co- 
bourg, Ont.). and after four years graduated in Arts, 
receiving the degree of B. A., and three years later 
that of M. A. He spent three years as a traveling 
preacher, but owing to failure of liealth and other 
considerations satisfactory to his own mind, he decided 
to devote himself to newspaper life, having for some 
years acted as correspondent for a nttmber of religious 
and secular papers iu Canada and the United. States. 

In the Spring of 1S66 he prnxhased the '" Water- 
loo Chronicle," which he ably conducted for some 
years. During the lirst of tliese years he collected all 
the information po.ssible from the old settlers and 
wrote a history of the early ,-ettletuents and p;oneers 
of Waterloo county, Out., and published it in a series 
of articles in his paper. Those articles were highly 
interesting and appreciated. a:id practicably reliable, 
as many of the early pioneers were yet living and 
capable of relating quite detinitely the events of their 
emigration as well as their experience of early 
wilderness life. Disposing of his Waterloo bu.-ines.s 
he purchased a daily paper in St. Catharines. Out., 
which he successfully carried on for eighc years. 
Having a good otier he disposed of it and returned 
with his fa'mily to his native town, Berlin, and sliortly 
after, iu the year 1S78, started tlie Berlin •'Daily 



News." of which lie is still t!ie editor and proprietor. 

He is an able, independent and vigorous writer, 
thoroughly Canadian in all his feelings and aspira- 
tions, always taking au active part In political matters, 
and for many j-ears has been an able member of the 
Municipal Council of the town of Berlin, and has 
never failed to use his best energies to advance its 
interest and promote its growth. 

Mr. Moyer has for nearly forty years been an 
official and active member and worker in the Mellio- 
dist church. He has been a member of a number of 
annual conferences, and of the last General Confer- 
ence, the supreme legislative body of that denomina- 
tion, the largest in the Dominion of Canada. 

His domestic life has been miusually happy, 
although he has had a very busy life, and of late 
years had to do a large part of his work under the 
painful sufferings of chronic rheumatism and other 
todily afflictions. Children : (V) Alice G. Moyer,

VALKXTIXK MOVER, 

OF TULrEIIOCKEN TOWNSHIP, BKRKS CO., PA., AND 
HIS DKSCI-INDAXTS. 



BV HENRY C. MOVV.R, AUBl'RX, X. Y. 



I. Valentine }^Ioyer, Sr., died 1797. The first 
authentic statement concerning this man yet ascer- 
tained, is in a record of baptisms of Host Church, 
Berks county. Pa., as early as 1759. The next is his 
Will, recorded in Book of Wills, "B." page 473, in 
Reading, Pa.- His nan\e seems to appear among the 
taxables of Tulpehockeu township. Berks county, 
Province of Pennsylvania, in 1757. In this tax list 
his name i-^ spelled " Valentine Meier ; " a probable 
instance of the incorrect spelling of the old time as- 
sessor. In fact the name, with its variations, appears 
in early Pennsylvania rcxx^rds thus : Moyer, Mayer, 
Meyer, Mire, Miar, }^Iyher, Miere. The name Moyer, 
however, occurs as early as 1721, and as far as can be 
learned has always thus been written by tliis family. 
This man may have been related to Frederick Moyer, 
of Tulpehocken, who, with his family, was killed by 
the Indians June 50, 1754, but this is only conjecture. 
It is said that during the Revolutionary war he 
belonged to the provision train wliich transported 
produce from the fertile valley of the Tulpehocken to 
the camp at \'aHey Forge, and that he was at another 
time appointed to purch.ase horscs for General Wash- 
ington's army. 

Whether he was an original settler. ("»r the son of 
an original settler, is as yet an undetermined matter. 



-631- 

If an original settler, it has not yet l-eeii ascertained 
whether he emigrated into Tulpehcckeii from the 
Mohawk Valley, X. Y.,or eastward from the Susque- 
hanna, or with some funds in hand from German_v, 
as a fortune seeker in the New World ; or whether 
as an exile, because of religious persecution, from the 
German Palatinate. He may have been the son of an 
original settler, for the name of Hans (John) Mover 
is mentioned in the list of early settlers in the Tulpe- 
hockeu region as early as 1721 ; and a Henry Mo\-er 
was one of a colony v.iiich Conrad Weiser brought 
from Scoharie, N. Y.. in 1723. There is a legend 
that tv.-o brothers came from Germany, that one settled 
in the Mohawk Valley and. the otlier on the Tulpe- 
hocken. There is ar.(.»ther statement that four (or six) 
brothers came from. Oherhost, Palatinate of the Rhine, 
in an early day and settled at Tnlpehocken. Since 
the subject of this sketch was early identified with 
" Host Church " we may look upon tliis last statement 
as quite probable. 

The name " \'alenthi Mej'er " occurs in the list 
of foreigners imported in ship " Queen of Denmark," 
from Rotterdam, last from Cowes. Qualified Octo- 
ber 4. 1 75 1. Whether he and the subject of this 
sketch are the same is not yet ascertained. The 
first reliable information we have is in the record of 
baptisms in Host church, thus: "Maria Barbara 
Moyer, 'oorn January 9, 17,59, baptised February 16, 
1759. parents, \'alentine and ^largaret Barbara 
M(jyer. " He had a son Philip from a previous mar- 
riage, wdio was well grown at the time of this second 
marriage, as is indicated by this record: "Maria 
Catharine, born Feb. 27, 1762, bapti/ed Mar. 20, 
1762, parents Philip and ]Maria Catharine Moyer, 
sponsors, the grand parents, Valetitine and Margaret 
Barbara Moyer." The name Philip Moyer occurs 
in the listxif foreigners imported in sliip " Xeptune," 
from Rotterdam, last from Cowes. Qualified Sep- 
temljer 24, 1754. 

Host Church is located in Berks conrit_v, Pa., 
alx3"at fixe miles north '■■i \\'omelsd<jrf. It was organ- 
ized as early as 1750, and possibly prii'r V) that time. 



~ 632 - 

A church building of good size was erected in 1775, 
and the same was extensively repaired or rebuilt in 
1S85. It occupies an elevated spr;t, beautiful for 
situation, is one of the ancient landmarks, an.d is 
generally spoken of as the " Old Host Church." It 
is a matter of regret that the list of members, or the 
record. of marriages and deaths are, at the present 
writing, amotig the things that are lost. In the 
graveyard adjoining the church is an ancient section, 
where, here and there, are standing old sandstone 
gravemarks, weather beaten, and in some instances 
entirely defaced, but the name of \'alcntine Mo\-er, or 
any of liis kin, is not to be seen on ain- of them. 
Evidently many gra\-es have been leveled by tlie hand 
of time and all vestiges of their existence removed. 
It is proliable, since he and. his family were identified 
with this church as early at least as 1759, and that he 
died about a mile distant in 1797, that all that is 
mortal of him rests somewhere in the old section of 
the Host Church cemetery. 

Valentine Moyer, Sr., was married to Margaret 

Barbara . Her maiden name has not }et been 

ascertained. Whether a European by birth, or born 
amid the wilds of America, are also among the undis- 
covered things. What we know of her. who may 
have had much to do with making her husband finan- 
cially successful in spite of pioneer difficulties, we 
knov.- only by inferences. It appears that she was 
about 20 years younger than her husband, that she 
v.-as of a most active disposition, for approaching 60 
3'ears of age, her favorite custom seems to have been 
horseback riding along the dangerous bridle-paths of 
the Tulpehocken region, and that she was still, at 
that age, the possessor of some of her former personal 
attractions, is evident from the fact that the Will of 
her husband made a second marriage an unprofitable, 
if not an inn^)ossible, altair. When she died, or where 
she was buried, we do not yet know. 

Valentine Mover, Sr., died in 1797. He made 
his Will April 30, 1797, " being very sick and weak 
in body, but of sound mind, memory and understand- 
ing." The Will was "proved" August 7, 1797.

Ricv. Hkxrv C. Movkr. 

See I'a-e 645. 



The Will sliows that he was the owner of two 
farms, one of 150 acres, which he sold lo his second 
son, John Nicholas Mover, for £14^0, the same to be 
paid in payments to the heirs ; and the other on 
Summer Hill, which was to t)e sold to pay present 
deljts and the balance to l.'e jv.it on intere.st for the 
benefit of the widow. 

It shows further that he had ,c:iven his eldest 
sou, Philip Mo\er, a "' projujrtionable " already, but, 
should it appear in the final settlement that lie had 
not received an ■' equivalent," then he should be made 
to share alike with the others. 

The names of his children, as heirs, occur in the 
following order : John Nicholas, Daniel, George, 
A'alentine, Michael, Peter, Henr\-, Elizabeth. His 
daughter Margaret is mentioned as being married to 
Henry Weber, and his daughter Barbara had married 
Valentine ^Slochel, but she having died his daughter 
Catharine had l>ecouie Valentine Mochel's second wife. 

In the next item the Will speaks of " my eldest 
son Philip." 

The V/ill clears up a long standing contradiction. 
One branch of descendants claimed that Valentine (Jr. ) 
was the fourth son of Valentine (v^r. ), and another 
branch claimed that he was the fifth son. The fact 
is, Valentine (Jr.) was the fifth son of \'alentine (Sr. ) 
and the fourth son of \'alentine fvSr.), by wife Mar- 
garet Barbara. The names of tb.e sons stand in the 
order of their birth, but the names of the daughters 
do nor, as will be seen later. 

For his " beloved wife Margaret Barbara Mo>-er," 
aside from the interest already mentioned and the 
money secured by the .sale of the personal property, 
_the Will provides further a«? follows : She was to live 
on the plantation with the said son John Nicholas 
Moyer. was to liave yearly a stated quantit\- of fire- 
wood, pork, beef, wheat, r\e. fiax, wool, cider, apples, 
and tlie nse <^i the quarter ni the garden. Al.-^o the 
" roan mare" with saddle and bridle, and her choice 
of a fresh milch cow ; al>o household furniture and 
kitchen utensils of best qua!it>', with se\-eral articles 
of ' ' pewter. ' ' 



-634- 

Then occurs the restriction concerning a subse- 
quent inarriai;e which reads as follows: " But it is 
my Will that in case my wife SlKUild join in Wedlock 
again She Shall not be entitled to receive or take 
away any part of what I Iiave above bequeathed or 
Willed unto her, but only as long as sire remains my 
Widow." To us at the present time the above restric- 
tion may seem to be somewhat severe ; but, consider- 
ing the legal limitations and disqualifications of women 
in that day, we are led to regard the Will as specially 
tender and careful of his beloved wife Margaret 
Barbara, in that he an'anged a sufficiency of the 
"wherewith," to cheer and comfort her declining 
days, and specially enjoined upon their son John 
Nicholas the continued exercise of his attentive care 
in her behalf. 

The Will closes with a nomination of his son Jolni 
Nicholas Moyer and his son-in-law Valentine Mochel 
as the executors thereof. It was signed in. the pres- 
ence of Henry T,eit/. and Jacob Lingel, and it was 
recorded by J. Bower, Reg'r. 

The record of baptisms in Host Church gives the 
following information concerning the children of 
Valentine Moyer (Sr. ) : By first wife, Philip Moyer. 
By second wife, Maria Barbara Moyer, b. Jan. 9, 1750 ; 
Catharine Moyer, b. Aug. 19, 1767 ; John Nicholas 
Moyer, born Dec. 26, 1769 ; Anna Margaret Moyer, 
b. Dec. 28, 1770 ; Daniel Moyer, b. (date not given) ; 
John George Moyer, born Jan. 13, 1775 ; Valentine 
Moyer, b. (see continued sketch ) ; Maria Elizabeth 
Moyer, b. July 30, 177S ; Michael Moyer, b. July 6, 
17S0; John Peter Moyer, b. June 26, 17S2 ; John 
Henry Moyer, b. Mar. 9, 17S4. 

At present writing (1S96) but little has been 
ascertained concerning the.se several families, except, 
of course, the line of Valentine (Jr.), which we con- 
tinue to follow. 

Maria Barbara ^[oyer married \'alentine ^fochel 
and she died sometime prior to 1707. 

Catharine Moyer became \'alcutine Mochel's 
second wife. 



- 635 - 

Jolin Nicliolas Mover becatiie possessor of ihc 
" honie.stead " in 1797, and owned it till 182S. Alx>ut 
1S17 he IjLiilt a large stone farm house and a large 
barn on the "plantation." Some of his descendants 
reside in Reading, Pa. 

Anna Margaret Mover married Henry Weber. 

Daniel Mover, it is thought, settled in Reading, 
Pa., where he built a stone mill ; later he removed to 
Ohio. (?) 

John George ^Moyer, it is thought, .settled in 
Ohio. (?) 

Maria Elizabeth Mover, it is thought, married a 
Mr. Miller and has descendants in Reading, Pa. (?) 

Michael Mover was a very skillful carpenter. 
He made a de.sk and presented it to Mrs. Valentirie 
Mover, Jr., v.-ith drawers and hidden drawers within, 
which was quite a curiosity. The desk itself is lost, 
but the recollection of it conies down to the present 
day. A Micliael Moyer was elected elder of vSt. John's 
Reformed church at Sinking Spring, Berks Co., Pa., 
December 19, 18 1 1. (?) 

John Henry Moyer, it is thought, became a 
farmer and lived near Kutztown, Pa. Later he 
removed to Philadelphia, where some of his descen- 
dants now live. 

The old " Moyer Homestead " is in what is r.ow 
Jefferson township. Berks county, Pa., aljout one 
mile east of the old Host Church. As already 
mentioned, it came into the possession of John Nicholas 
Moyer in 1707. It remained in his possession until 
1828, when he and Ins wife Elizabeth deeded it to 
Philip Stein. In 1S3S Philip Stein .sold it to Isaac 
Herbcn, who in turn .sold it to Michael Stupp. In 
1S71 Michael sold it to Isaac Grove, who, in 18S1, 
sold it to Elias Grove, who is now ( 1S95) the owner. 

The old house, still standing, has the appearance 
of more than a century of age. It is now used as a 
tool house and storage place for useless things, and 
although the foundation is secure and the timber*^ are 
firm and of the t)est material. >et over it all, neces- 
sarily, there is the mild flavv:)r of (.ieca\'. It is aliout 
18 by 24 feet in size, and is two stories high. Tlie 



— 636 — 

lower story contains two r(X>nis and a kitchen, and the 
upper stor\- a lar.i^e inulivided attic chamber. The 
building has but one outer door, and the rear of the 
building is towards the road, probaljjy so, because it 
was possibly erected before the fences were built or 
the pre>ent road located. Some large decaying stumps 
iiear?jy indicate the locality of the old orchard, and a 
little pile of leveled ruins is all that marks the place 
where stood the barn which sheltered, with rest and 
provende-r, the "roan mare" after a warm gallop 
under the whip of tlie matron of the " y'lantation," on 
her return from religious services at Host Church, or 
aftc-r a hurried visitation around the sparseh' -settled 
neighborhood. Near the old building is a magriifi- 
cent spring, five feet square, with four feet depth of 
water, walled up with stones. From the spring issues 
a small stream, which, flowing to the south and east, 
empties into the Tulpchocken. 

To the casual observer, or to the ordinary passer 
by, these matters are of but little consequence, liut to 
the descendants of \^alentine and Margaret Barbara 
^b.>yer they are items, referre'.l to in this way, of more 
than counnon interest. It is the locality where their 
early ancestors in America passed through the varied 
experiences of joy and sorrow, of prosperity and 
adversity, of occasional failures and re})eated succe.s.ses 
in a struggle for subsistence and existence amid the 
imtamed forests of the Xe\\- World, surrounded by 
savage beasts and, at times, by still more savage 
Indians. 

It may be a matter of interest to these descendants 
to know that their early ancestors in America belonged 
to that portion of the population who were accused, 
at the beginning of the French and Indian war, of 
being in league with tlie French, and in conspiracy 
against Fhigland's King. They met the accusation 
by presenting a paper of vindication to Robert Hunter 
Ivlorris, Governor of the Pro\ince, November 20, 
1754, in which occur these closing words : "To the 
Contrary we wish and pray, and the more at this 
critical Juncture of impending Danger, that God 
Almighty might rule our gracious King George and 



-637- 

Parlinment to find lawfull means to defeat and frus- 
trate all unjust designs of the French King- and all 
other foreign Princes whatever, wherewith they in- 
tend to disturb his Majesty's Rights : And ue do 
hereby renev,- all true Luyalty and Assistance or Con- 
tribution to our King and Governn^ent in such a 
manner as the Wisdom of your Hour, and our worthy 
Asseml.<ly in Legislature by the C<-^nstitutions of this 
Province will find needfull and expedient." 

So they continued to pay, without apparent com- 
plaint, the "yearly Quit Rent aforesaid, due or to 
become due for the same, To the Chief Lord of Lords 
of the fee thereof." But when independence was 
declared none were more loyal to the colonial cause 
than these, and when the gloom of \'alley Forge had 
settled upon the army and the country, 1500 Penn- 
sylvanians fell into line, and all the available farmers 
of Tulpehocken atid the adjoining regions were organ- 
ized into a provision train, wdiich drained their fertile 
valleys, with but little promise of compensation, but 
which conspired to make the campaign of 177S. and 
of the other years of the war, a possibility and a 
success. 

It may further be a matter of interest to know- 
that these early ancestors in America belonged to that 
portion of the population concerning which the 
Colonial Governor, George Thomas, in his annua.l 
report (r738') wrote the.->e complimentary words: 
" This Province has been for some years the asylum 
of the distressed Protestants of the Palatinate and 
other ports of Germany, and 1 believe it may be 
truthfully said that the present flourishing condition 
of it is in a great measure owing to the industry of 
those petople. It is not altogether the fertility of the 
soil, but the number and industry of th.e people that 
make^^ a country flourish." 

If these interesting references to the facts of the 
past shall conduce t>) the pleasure of any, or of all, 
the writer will be well repaid. 



DESCENDANTS OE VALENTINE, SON OF 
VAEENTINI' MOVER, SR. 



II. Valentine Mover, a son of Valentine (Sr.) and 
Margaret Barbara Mover, b. in Tulpeliocken Twp., 
Berks Co., Pa., Aug. S, 1776 ; d. at Red Bank Creek, 
Armstrong (now Clarion) Co., Pa., Jan. 8, 1825 ; mrd. 
i^Iary, dau. of Christian Merkel. She was born May 
17S7 ; died in Luverne Co., Pa., Jan. 8, 1S36. Her 

mother's maiden name was Boyer. Mr. Mover 

was 21 years old when his father died. 

After marriage Valentine was for some vears a 
farmer in Maiden Creek township, Berks county, Pa. 
Pie was drafted for the War of 181 2. but an injured 
ankle, causing lameness, relieved him from the draft. 
In the year 18 14 he removed to Brier Creek township. 
Columbia county, Pa., and bought a 500-acre tract of 
land nine miles northeast of Bloomsburg, ui what is 
now Center township. He then, in the course of 

time, sold 100 acres to H S , 33 to D 

Y . 92 to D M , and reserved 75 acres 

for himself. The purchase and subsequent sales 
proved most unfortunate. There was a prior title 

vested in a Mr. G , of Philadelphia, and the legal 

difilculties resulting, arrayed against him his father- 
in-law and brother-ia-law. besides other parties also. 

After years of expensive litigation, which greatly 
crippled him financially, he resolved to go West. He 
resolved to do what, he said, the Devil never did — 
that is, leave Columbia county. So in the vSpring of 
1824 he, with his little family and personal belong- 
ings, in an emigrant wagon drawn by a yoke of oxen 
and a white horse, crossed the Allegheny mountains. 
After many a long day's journey he finally pitched 



■ -639- 

liis tent on Red Bank Creek, about ten miles south- 
west of Brookville. He Ixai-ht a tract of land and 
began the work of retric\ing his losses. He was 
farmer, stone mason, shoemaker, and he worked so 
hard that before the close of the first year he broke 
down and died. One account is that he suffered an 
internal injury while at work in a harvest field, result- 
ing in a lingering illness, and the other accotmt is 
that he caught a severe cold, resulting in a fatal fever. 
During his illness he longed for returning health, 
intending to go back to the Susquehanna and purchase 
Great Island, near Lock Haven. 

His widow and little family in March 1S25, 
faint with weariness and sorrow, returned to the 
county of Columbia, and by order of the Court 
was granted a small piece of land on the tract 
formerly owned by her husband. Here .she lived, 
supported by her older ."^ons, imtil her marriage 

with a Mr. S . Her subsequent life was very 

unhappy. The avails of tlie Armstrong county tract, 
together with \vhat remained of the Columbia count}^ 
tract, and the money accruing from the public sale 
of personal property, were all absorbed in legal 
" ways that are dark," and the widow and children 
never received a cent therefrom. 

In personal appearance Valentine Moyer was 
five feet ten inches in height and weiglied iSo 
pounds, black hair and heavN' beard. He was an 
active man and, had lie lived, would have risen 
above the Columbia county disaster. He was a 
good singer, ?nd at the time of his death was the 
leader of tlie choir in the Reformed church, of 
which he was a member. His dying request to his 
wife was, that their children become members of the 
church. Children : William, John, Daniel, Henrv. 
David. 

Ml. William Moyer was born in Tulpehocken Twp., 
Berk.s Co., Pa., in 1S09 ; d. in Momence, Kankakee 
Co.. 111., Fel)ruary 24, 1SS3. After the death of 
his father much uf the burden of caring for the 
mother and younger children came upon him. Hi^ 
brother. John was .somewhat a.ssociated with him in 



— 640 — 

these matters. He rianievi Esther Hagenlnieh, of 
Delaware t^'Wiiship, Xorthunibcrlnnd county, Pa., 
who was horn June 19, iSij, and died September 29, 
1S47. He hved in Xorthuiul^erland county for many 
years, but hater in h!fe went to IlHnois. He was a 
carpenter and cabinet maker, a fine workman, and 
was emploNed to finish residences in the matter of 
mantels, stairs, etc. In 1S55 he went to Seneca Co., 
N. v., to finish some buildings. He was jovial in dis- 
position, always ready to do a kindness, even though 
such a course might result in injur}- to himself.

Hi. John S. Moyer, b. in Berks Co.. Pa., January 2, 
1S12 ; nird. Mary ITartranft. She was b. in Schuyl- 
kill Co., Pa., February 2, 1814 ; died at Trout Run, 
Lycoming Co., Pa., Nov. 24, 1876. After the death 
of his father Mr. Moyer was apprenticed to the shoe- 
bench with a Mr. Hopkins, who was also his guardian. 
Mr. and Mrs. Moyer started housekeeping at 
Turbotville, Pa., and became home itinerants, for 
they moved more than a dozen diiferent times. 
Pate in life he purchased a lot at Trout Run, Pa., 
and built a house. For about five years he was 
a farmer. In one sense he was not a succe.ssful busi- 
ness man. About 1S57 he met with serious business 
reverses, froni which he never rallied. Yet, rearing 
a large and intensely active family, giving them to the 
extent of his ability a fair educational start, and, for 
more than a .score of years " keeping the wolf from 
the door," may after all be success of a very high 
order. 

Socially he was reserved with strangers, natur- 
ally suspicious atid almost forgiving, but in com- 
pany with his chosen friends he was remarkably 
genial. As a father, in his younger days he was a 
.severe disciplinarian, but as he grew older he became 
indulgent. He secretly rejoiced in the successes of 
his children, but was very careful not to spoil them 
with comphmentary words. He was a man of con- 
trasts and extremes. In religious matters he was dis- 
posed to doubt, but by patient thinking always 
returned to the truth. His belief and trust in Divine 
Providence was marked. He was a man of few words, 
who did a vast amount of thinking. One of his sons 
(D. V. i\I.) writes of him: " Uricontrolled by the 
influences of religion, his indomitable will, his in- 
tensely pa.ssionate nature and his ideas of exact 
di.scipline, might have fostered.disastrous consequences, 
ueverthele.ss, after a long, useful and devoted life, he, 



— 645 — 

like the Arab of the desert, quietly folded his tent and 
silently stole away." 

He died at the home of liis daughter, Mrs. 
Harriet N. Ranson, of Tioga Center, X. Y., June 30, 
1S90. Mr. Moyer, Reformed, later Methodist ; Mrs. 
Mover, Lutheran, then Methodist. Children: Henry,

IV. Dr. John Levis Sylvanus Moyer, b. in Cressona, 
Pa., Aug. 24, 1859 ; died in Cressona, Pa., F'eb. 8, 
18S7. This young man po.ssessed rare capabilities 
and gave promise of great usefulness. He soon com- 
pleted the work furnished by the school of Cressona, 
and at the age of 14 opened a private .school on his 
own account and had more students than he could 
accommodate. At 16 he went into the scale office of 
the Reading Railroad ; at 18 he entered the State 
normal school, Millersville. Pa., and graduated at 20 ; 
taught school one year in Lancaster Cit_\' ; next four 
years he taught the Grannnar .school of Ashland, Pa., 



reading medicine at the same time. He became a 
student in Jeffersoa Medical College, Philadelphia, 
from wliich he graduated with honor, taking the prize 
" On Diseases of the Skin." During a \-acation from 
Jefferson he filled the position of principal of the 
Schuylkill Haven High school. After graduation he 
located in Cre.s.sona, Pa., where he soon built up a large 
practice and was employed as surgeon for the Mine 
Hill Railroad. In iS86 he was elected physician for 
the Schuylkill County Almshouse. 

But his prosperous career met with a sudden fatal 
reverse. On January S, 1SS7, his horse became un- 
manageable and he was thrown against a knot in a rail 
of the fence, causing a fracture of the skull. He died 
February S, 1SS7, on the ver},- day when he was to 
begin his work at the almshouse. His death was 
greatly mourned. Students from the several schools 
where he taught, classmates from Millersville and 
Jefferson, physicians with whom he was associated and 
patients to whom he had ministered relief, all bowed 
with the family under the weight of a great sorrow. 
But none felt the blow so keenly as his father. Nine 
months later he too was carried to the grave. With 
the dtrath of Dr. John Moyer an intensely active and 
remarkably brilliant personality closed up with time.

CHRISTIAN MEYER, 

OF SHRKWSEUKV TOWNSHIP, YORK COUNTY, PA. 



SKKTCH BY ISAAC \V. MEYERS, OF HAMPTON, IOWA. 



I. Christian Meyer, b. Dec. lo, 170S ; died in 
1777 ; married Elizabtjth KauilniaTi. She was h^ni 
January 10, 1720. 

When more than a 100 years after his death the 
.study of the Hfe of Christian Meyer, of York county, 
Pa., was first suggested, it was supposed that he was 
a natiYe of Germany. A minute research as to his 
history lias not been made, but a glance at some old 
indentures, his old homestead, the old family cemetery 
and the records of the old family Bible, creates the 
thought that he may have been born in the township 
in w hich he lived and died and now Hes buried. Two 
of his sons, John and Andrew, ha\-e several descend- 
ants still liYiug, whose lives had v.-ell l)egun before the 
two brothers closed their career. 

it is j)rincipaHy through the lives of John and 
Andrew, as recalled by these living witnesses, that 
tlieir descendants are enabled to get a glimpse of their 
more venerable ancestor. Christian Meyer, his estate 
having fallen into their hands, partly before and 
partly after his death, Andrew and his descendants 
have remained in possession of their inheritance to the 
present day. John and his descendants clung to the 
greater part ot theirs' till 1837. when they sold it. 
part to a descendant of Andrew and the remainder to 
Peter Feigley. 

The estate of Christian Meyer, as afterwards 
owned by Joini and Andrew,- lies on tlie west side of 



- 65S - 

the eastern branch (south of York) of Coclorns creek, 
in the nortlieast corner of Springfield (formerly 
Shrewsbury) towjiship, York county, Pa. In the 
vicinity of the nortlieast corner of the tstatc a small 
creek, forming the boundary line between Hopewell 
and York townships, falls into Codorus creek near the 
point where the latter changes its course to a western 
then to a northern direction ; the western direction 
continuing about a mile and the northern nearly the 
same distance. In no other part of its course does 
this branch of Codorus creek present a similar feature. 
Hence the mouth of the small creek becomes an 
unmistakable landmark. This chosen landmark is 
about a mile and a quarter northw^ard from the town 
of Gray don, two miles and three quarters east of 
Loganville, and less than half a mile east of 
tht old family cemetery. Going down stream of 
Codorus creek from this landmark for half a mile we 
reach the mouth of a small creek coming in from the 
southwest, or going up stream three-fourth of a mile 
we reach the mouth of another but smaller creek 
coming in from the same direction. These two creeks 
are prominent features of the Christian Meyer estate, 
the former flowing through the north part of it and 
the latter through the south. Between these two 
creeks, and running nearly parallel with them, is a high 
hill whose ridge divides the estate into the north and 
south parts. 

In order to give clearness to the description of the 
two parts and the dividing hill two photogtaphs have 
been taken and engraved for this work, the one taken 
on the north side of the hill being designated as the 
"View of John Myers' Estate" (see engraving on 
another page), and the one taken on the south side as 
the ' ' View of Andrew Myers' Estate. ' ' 

The view of John Myers' estate was taken (May 
1896) from the old family cemetery, looking south- 
west or up the valley of the creek, which, as it 
approaches the cemetery, turns to the north, and, 
passing between the two homes seen in the valley, 
falls into Codorus creek at the northern limit of the 
estate. Of the two homes seen in the valley the one 



tSV-T^-*-'-**"^-^'-^--^^-'--"^' 



— 659 ~ 

beyond the creek, at the foot of th.e hill, is of special 
interest to the grandchildren of the late John Myers 
(grandson of Christian), of Oliio, having been his 
home and place of business for fifteen years. It is 
often spoken off as the fulling-mill place, because such 
a mill he operated just outside his door yard with the 
water power furnished by the creek. The high hill 
west of the house aids in locating the ruins of the old 
mill dam, which is at its extreme southern point, and 
the town of Loganville over a mile' west. Between 
this hill on the north and the divided hill on the 
south spreads out a rich and beautiful valley, which, 
though covered with thick forests, must have been 
the chief attraction to the pioneers. Opposite the two 
homes already mentioned, in the midst of a group of 
farm buildings, south of the valley on a highway 
creeping over the undulating grounds between the 
dividing hill and the valley, appears the old stone 
barn, which is fast becoming an object of exciting 
interest, not only to those familiar with the structure 
btit to many who liave never seen it. Every circum- 
stance points to tlie probability that Christian Meyer 
himself built that barn and accompanying house for 
his son John in 1770 or 1771. That the building 
antedates his death cannot be questioned. If his 
hands did not assist in rearing those walls his emotions 
were at least stirred with the conviction that the edi- 
fice must needs become an enduring monument of the 
sturdy, patient, economical haliits of the German 
pioneers of tlie forests of Pennsylvania. 

Barring these oldest of the ancestral buildings, 
the most interesting of all the objects clustering 
aroimd the old Jiomestead is the cemetery itself, hang- 
ing on the southern slope and near the brow of the 
hill at the eastern border of the valley. Here sleep 
several of the ancestors of the descendants of Chris- 
tian Meyer, who, witlunit a doubt, himself .selected 
the spot, for here, too, lie buried his descendants, many 
of whom preceded liini to this conmion and final rest- 
ing place. Here is found the tomb of his wife and of 
Christian himself. We can think of this place Init as 



— 66o— / 

a parcel of liis own possessions, set aside as a gift to 
his loved 0!ies. 

Passing now in a southeastern direction from the 
old stone barn up the north slope of the dividing hill, 
and (as may be noticed at the extreme left of the 
picture) through a narrow strip of native woods still 
crowning the dividing ridge, down the southern slope, 
we come suddenly upon the object of our search, 
the place where once was Christian Meyer's home. 
When we look upon the decayed orchard, the spark- 
hng spring, the ruUis of the old log house and 
cellar, we say "' it is enough." (See engraving, View 
of Andrew Myers' Estate. ) 

The photographer, who was requested to catch a 
picture of this place, did not stop here, but continued 
his descent into the valley towards the town of Gray- 
don, crossed the little creek and set up his camera in 
the midst of the south -half of the old estate, now 
known as the Andrew Myers estate. The view is 
nearly north and in the direction of the cemetery. 
Fef erring to the picture the reader will tind directly 
in front, and stretching far to the northeast, a valley 
as fertile and beautiful as the one to the north of the 
hill. South of the highway, near the centre of the 
picture, may be seen a trace of the creek, winding its 
half-hidden course toward the extreme right, and 
falling beyond that point into Codorus creek at the 
foot of the distant hill, which comes partially into view 
at the northeastern extremity of the valley. After 
marking for a short distance the boundary between 
this hiU and the valley, the Codorus creek is lost sight 
off by the inter\'ention of the dividing hill. Less than 
a hundred rods from its banks at this point appears 
the old home of Andrew Myers. The larger of the 
tv.'o is the old stone house, built by Andrew in 17S4 
or 1785. What the stone barn, ju.st over the hill, is to 
the descendants of John, this house is to tlie descend- 
ants of Andrew. Inmiediately to the left we have 
an admirable view of the eastern end of the dividing 
hill, a highway older than the dwellings marking its 
base, and a private lane leadhig far up the southern 
slope into the old orchard. Here the eye rests upon a

sheltered nook, a small tableland partly surrounded 
by hills, and yet overlooking the valley below. The 
orchard and the rippling spring have little nieauing to 
the stranger, but they speak volumes to the descend- 
ants of Christian Meyer. 

In 1S35 the old log house near the spring was yet 
standing though roofless, and its doors and windows 
had been removed or destroyed. It was built prob- 
ably not later than 1742, and occupied by the builder 
until his death. Such was the home of Christian 
Meyer, and here he lived and reared his family. He 
owned lands on both the north and south sides of the 
dividing hill. He was a farmer, cultivating the fields 
which he was preparing, one each year, by felling the 
trees of the forest and burning them in hugh piles. 
According to the custom of the times his wife and 
daughters manufactured the common wearing apparel 
worn by the family, also spreads, tablecloths and 
linen articles. They spun the carded wool shorn from 
the flock, and the " hetcheled " fibre of flax raised on 
the farm, the latter being done by the wheel and dis- 
taff, which is still kept as an heirloom in many of the 
older families. The surplus products of the farm, 
orchard and garden were sold at York and Baltimore. 
The almost forgotten five-horse team furnished the 
principal means of transportation and was used to 
market the v/heat and other crops in the latter city, 
forty-five miles distant. 

It would be natural to suppose that this home on 
the hillside was Christian's first and only one, but the 
supposition cannot be supported by evidence. On the 
contrary, aged descendants and others still living, 
throw no light but rather confusion on the question. 
They remember that up to 1825 the outlines of two 
decayed orchards were distinctly traceable bn top of 
the dividing hill, one on the north and the other on 
the south side of the ridge. Assuming that these two 
orchards withstood tlie effects of time as well as did 
the one on the south slope by the spring, they could 
not have been planted later than 1670 and may liave 
been planted much earlier. Nor will this seem im- 
probable when we remember that the location is only 



— 662— ; 

twelve miles from the Susquehanna river, only thirty 
miles from the head of Cliesapeake Bay, about the 
same distance from the trading post established in 
1632, near Havre-de-Grace, and that the territon,- was 
under the control of the Calverts from 1632 to 16S1, 
proprietaries who defended the settlers in civil liberty 
and religious toleration to the utmost. If these 
orchards were planted after William Penn became the 
proprietary in 1681, but not later than 1720, they may 
have been planted by Christian's father and grand- 
father. The reasonable conclusion is that they were 
planted within those limits of time and by those 
parties. Such a conclusion is not out of harmony with 
the progress made on both sides of the hill in clearing 
away the forests. For on both sides the progress in 
clearing away the forests was from the dividing ridge 
toward the valley below. On the north slope the old 
stone barn place was established in about 1770, and 
the fulling-mill place in 1S22. On the south slope the 
home in the old orchard was created many years prior 
to the one located in the valley by Andrew, 

Do the two orchards on the ridge mean two 
homes ? Were these two homes located by strangers 
or by a father and son, the immediate progenitors of 
Christian Mej-er? If by the latter Christian was a 
native of Shrewsbury tov/nship ; if by the former he 
was in all probability one of those who, having heard 
the words of William Penn, "I will found a free 
colony for all mankind," crossed the Atlantic with the 
double purpose of finding a home and religious 
freedom. It is known that he was a minister of the 
Gospel of a society known as the German Baptist 
Brethren and preached in the dwellings of the settle- 
ment. Two of his sons, John and Andrew, also 
became ministers of the same denomination, and 
Andrew attaining to the office of Bishop. 

As a Pennsylvanian of the colonial period, Chris- 
tian Meyer not only v.-ituessed the triumphs of the 
nobler virtues ever violence and wrong, but he watched, 
in the evening of his life, that storm cloud rising higher 
and higher, which, three years prior to his death, 
resulted in the War of the Revolution and the 



— 663 -- 

Declaration of ]n<iepemloiice. In the midst of that 
war, iu the year 1779, the same iu v>-hicli the Peun 
family surrended their claim to the soil and juris- 
diction of Pennsylvania, he sank to his final rest, 
survived by his wife and children. His children in 
the order of their birth are as follows : Elizabeth, 
Maria, John, Christian, Andrew, Michael, Henry, 
Abraham.

DESCENDANTS OF JOHN MEYER, SON OF 
CHRISTIAN MEYER. 



Sketch By Isaac W. Mev:ers, of Hampton, Iowa. 



I!. John Meyer, b. in York Co., Pa., Nov. 25, 
1748 ; d. June 1833 ; mrd. Barbara Kaufiman. His 
name is given here as John Meyer. It might with 
much propriety be given as John Myers, for the old 
indenture made in 1779 shows that he permitted his 
name to go into that document as John " Myer ; " 
and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, in a patent 
issued in iSii to John Myers (him.self or his son) 
recognized the tract of land owned by Christian's sons 
as " Myerstown." The change from Meyer to Myers, 
as adopted by most of Christian's descendants, was 
therefore made during the lifetime of John. He was 
born in the log house by the spring, at least no other 
can be suggested as the place of his birth with any 
assurance of finding evidence that would give weight 
to the suggestion. After his marriage the old stone- 
barn place bccamie his home. These buildings were 
photograplied and engraved (see engra\'ing) for the 
especial purpose of associating them with his name, 
and the children of the late John Meyers, Esq., of 
Waterloo Co., Ont., who have been mainly instru- 
mental in procuring the several photographs, will 
contemplate this old fashioned colonial scene as the 
home of their great grandfather and the birthplace of 
their grandfather and their father. 

Though in the early part of his married life, as is 
believed by his grandsons, Moses and Samuel N. 
Myers, he may have harbored his aged parents in this

house through the closing years of their lives, and 
though ten of his grandchildren were bom in it 
through the declining years of his own life, this home 
was especiall}' his own, his by possession and occu- 
pancy. Here he lived during his entire life after 
gaining his majority, and here his seven children were 
born. He was a farmer and owned about 400 acres 
of land, including all once owned by liis father on ihe 
north side of the hill and some that he acquired by 
patents frotu the State. Iron ore being discovered on 
part of his land, he sold to a mining compatiy a strip 
of land containing 100 acres, stretching from tlie 
dividing ridge on the south along the east line of his 
estate to the cemetery on the north, leaving his 
remaining possessions L-shaped, extending along the 
west and north of the tract sold. In 1S22 the north 
132 acres became what is known as the fulling-mill 
place, the old stone-barn place being thereby reduced 
to 162 acres. On the former he established a new 
home and also a fulling and carding mill. His only 
surviving son. John, took possession of the new home 
and the mill. Soon after this his granddaughter 
Hannah (his son's eldest daughter) married Peter 
Hartman, and the old colonial home fell into Peter's 
possession, the youthful and the aged couples shar- 
ing the old home together. In 1826 his wife 
Barbara died, aged 86 years, and in June 1833 
he, too, passed to his final rest, aged 85 years. The 
two lie buried side by side in the old family cemetery. 
Though a farmer, he was also a minister of the 
German Baptist Brethren. Children : Esther and

Franklin Co.. Va., Dec. 22, 17S5 ; d. in Darke Co., 
Ohio, in 1863. He was ])on\ in Shrewsburj- (now 
Springfield township), York Co., Pa., in the house of 
the old colonial home, known as the old stone-barn 
place. He remained with his father and worked on the 
farm until after his marriage, in the 23rd year of his 
age. After that he probably took charge of the farm, 
for he lived with his father on the old homestead 
until ten of his children were lx>rn. In 1S22 he 
became owner of the north part of his father's farm, 
on which had been built the same year a house and 
fulling mill, now known as the fulling-mill place. 
The mill, which stood just south of the house, has long- 
since disappeared, but the house is still standing and 
has been engraved for this work. (See engraving 
" Fulling-Mill Place.") His two yoimgest children 
were born here. He cleared away some of the 
remaining forest and operated both the farm and the 
mill for fifteen years. 

During his fifteen years residence here his family 
was reduced in number. Hainiah married Peter 
Hartman and was living on the old colonial home- 
stead ; Jacob was married and lived in Mariland ; 
John and Mo.ses were married and left their nati\'e 
State ; ]\Iichael, Solomon and Amos died in child- 
hood (the latter was drowned in the flume of themill) 
and were laid side by side in tlie family cemetery, 
inmiediately east of where their grandparents lie 
buried. In 1S37 he sold his farm and mill to George 
Ne.ss, and Hartman at the same time sold the old 
homestead to Peter P'eigley. His son Jacob then 
returned from Maryland, and later the three families 
moved to Clark county, Ohio, accompanied by his 
remaining children, viz : lUizabtrth, Sarah, Polly, 
Samuel X. and Joseph. They arrived in Spring- 
field, O., late in the Fall, having made the journey in 
covered wagons. Early in the Spring of 1838 he 
bought and located on a farm in Mad River township, 
Clark county, about two miles west of Enon. His 
brick residence, standing on the north side of the 
Springfield and Dayton pike, just opposite tlie brick 
schoolhouse of the district, is yet a familiar object. It

has been etigravecl for this work throu.c^h the kindness 
of his grandchildren. Here he engaged in farming 
until his son Joseph was old enough to manage the 
farm, after which he Hved a retii'ed life. All of his 
daughters and his son Jacob lived within easy reach of 
him, and in his older days his feeble voice often 
mingled with the prattle of his grandchildren. His 
wife, whose senior he was by several years, outlived 
him eleven years. Both are buried in a small family 
cemetery on a farm on the north side of Mad River, 
fottr miles west of Springfield, known as the Keifer 
farm, nov,^ owned and occupied by L. J. M. Baker.

fulling mill. He atteuded school in Winter and 
worked in the factor}' in Summer. 

Having reached his majority in 1829, his father 
gave him a wagon and a pair of horses. The gift 
was suited to the time, for he found work between 
Baltimore and HlHcott's mill nt the grading of the 
first railroad built in this countr>-. Many Pennsyl- 
vaniaus had already located in Waterloo county. 
Ont., and v.'hen the grading was finished he v/ent to 
that Province. He arrived there in April 183.-, 'i^id 
found employment in a woolen mill at Bridgeport, on 
the Grand River, near Berlin. Here he was married 
and remained with his employer six years. For a 
future home he had purchased, in 1834, the north- 
half of lot No. 22, in the German Company tract, in. 
the township of Woolwich, county of Waterloo, and 
had caused some improvements to be made thereon. 

On March 13, 1S3S, he moved into the log house 
of this forest-hidden home, one mile east of 
the present site of Heidelburg. The dark forest 
melted away before his pitiless axe, wielded with per- 
petual energy, and fields appeared instead, which 
yielded him forty bushels of golden W^inter wheat per 
acre. In 1847 he purchased lot No. 24 (318 acres) 
of the same tract. This too, was cleared and arranged 
for two farms. The tou-n of Heidelberg stands on 
the northwest corner of this lot. In 1848 he built his 
stone house, which is a sort of reproduction of the 
ideas incalculated by his ancestors, and stands unim- 
paired as a monument pointing to the physical realm 
of his life. (vSee engraving '"Home of John Meyers, 
Esq.," of Waterloo county, Ont.) His three 
youngest children were born in this house. The three 
oldest were born at Bridgeport, and the remainder 
seven in the log house, which stood a few rods .south- 
west of tlie stone hou.se. 

He lived in the stone house until 1871, when he 
moved to the town of St. Jacob's, which became his 
home the remainder of his life. None of his children 
were with him then. They were seeking fortunes of 
their own, but remembered the stone house as their 
home. It was beneath it's roof that, through the

cberishing influence of fatlier and mother, musical and 
mathematical associations had been nuiintained for 
practical work during the long Winter evenings by 
the family circle and the- >ouths of the neighborhood 
— the songs of Zion receiving their full share of atten- 
tion. Beneath that roof the entire circle — father, 
mother and their children, had lived logether for 
several years. 

The circle was first broken into by marriages. 
Soon after a son and son-in-law went to Illinois to take 
charge of their father's land, which he had bought in 
1S57. The son-in-law enlisted in th.e Union army 
and died in the hospital at Nashville, Tenn. Another 
son went to Illinois to take charge of part of the land, 
and he, too, enlisted. These enhsimeuts were 
unexpected by the parents and fell i\wi\ them like 
bolts from a cloudless sky. In the latter instance the 
mother's anguish was unconcealed and retributive 
fate ordained that the son should see her no more m 
this life — though he had made immediate amends by 
endearing letters written from his post of duty. Her 
death in 1S6S divested home of its real meaning. 

The father was loved and respected by his chil- 
dren. He had been one of Her Majesty's magistrates 
for many years. In 1S41 he was elected a member of 
the Council of the District of Wellington, represent- 
ing Woolwich and the adjoining Queen's Bu.sh — a 
territory extending to Lake Huron. He held this 
position for eight years, until district authorit}- was 
abandoned and county authority created. He then 
continued to represent tlie same territory in the Water- 
loo County Council until 1S52. Allot the sessions of 
the Wellington District Council w^ere held at Guelph, 
the first one being convened by the Governor General 
February 8, 1842, and the closing session being held 
in October 1S49. The first session of the Waterloo 
County Council was also held at Guelp-h. January 2S. 
1S50. Subsequently its sessions were he'd at Berlin, 
the county seat. With but a slight interruption he 
continued to be a member of the County Council 
imtil 1S63, when he declined to ser\-e longer. 



— 670 — 

The writer, on February 9. iSg6, received from 
the Ho!i. James Cowan, of Gali, a letter from which 
the followin,;;" is copied : " In 1S40 the old districts 
were created cor}X)rations with municipal powers. 
As soon as Woolwich, with the addition of Queen's 
Bush (an adjoining forest extending to Lake Huron), 
had the legal number of inhabitants, 3'our fatlier was 
elected Councillor by acclamation and held that posi- 
tion until the law was changed, in alx)ut 1S50, 
appointing townsliip and county councils. Being now 
in my 93rd year, the staunch settlers of Waterloo 
county, v^'ith whom I came in contact socially, muni- 
cipally and politically for sixty years, many o: v/hora 
were my juniors and among whom your fath.er was 
chief, are all gone." 

. His Heidelberg farm was sold in 1S6S, the south 
half to his son Solomon and the northern half to 
John Hahn. His homestead was sold in 187 1 to John 
Brubaker. His estate, at the time of his death, 
amounted to 543,000. He was not a member of any 
church but believed in and defended Christianity. 
He was an ardent advocate of the public schools and 
encouraged every advancement in educatior.al means 
of the Province. He took a deep interest in all 
public questions, but was uirasually calm in express- 
ing his opinions on tlie same. 

He was married a second time to Margaret 
(Ziegler) Wenger February 16, 1S69. He lies buried 
by the side of his wife Maria in Martin's Cemetery, 
located in the northern part of Waterloo townsliip, on 
the line between that township and the township of 
Woolwich. His children were born in the following 
order : Diana. Louisa, Elial?, Solomon, Isaac, Marian, 
Sarah, Hliza, Hannah, Absalom, Barbara, John,

V. * Isaac Wenger Myers, was born in the log house 
of his father's forest home November 20, 1839, but 
the stone house of the same place became his home at 
the age of 10. The deep forests, traversed by creeks 
and rivers teeming with fishes, and bordered in the 
green breaks by wild fruit trees and the overhangiiig 
grape, mingled with the rippling of waters, the 
chattering of birds, and the ding-dong of bells echoing 
through the woods from the roaming herds, all over- 
ruled by the light of a Summer Sunday morning sun, 
made the scene at such a time a very paradise for the 
youths of that day, which in some degree made 
amends for that darker side of life, incident to the toil 
and economy necessary to convert forest into field. If 
to these we add the scenes of the long Canadian 



Sketch from 9. friend. 



- 674 - ^ 

Winters, the deep snows, the aurora boreahs,. the 
moonlight sleigh rides, the spelhng. singing and day 
schools in the old logschoolhouse, we have the princi- 
pal features of Canadian life (barring home, fireside 
and church) as brought to bear upon the generation 
of boys and girls to which the subject of this sketch 
belonged. 

Early in life he worked on the farm in Sunmier 
and attended school in Winter. At the age of 14 he 
began a course of evening studies at home. After- 
ward he organized and taught home classes in math- 
ematics and vocal music during the Winter evenings. 
In 1S5S he became teacher of the public school in the 
district, which position he held nearly three years. 
During this time he took twice an eight weeks' course 
at the Gait Grammar School under William Tassie, 
Esq., A. M. In November 1S60 he took charge of 
the public school in the town of St. Jacobs. Self- 
educated he entered upon his task, a self-taught and 
somewhat self-willed teacher, demanding of his pupils 
(in turn) that the school become a self-governed one 
without a set of fixed rules. His evening and early 
Uiorning studies were kept up with unflinching appli- 
cation. " The school had 150 pupils enrolled. He 
organized it as a nionitorial or normal school, making 
teachers of sucli qualified pupils as could by their own 
efforts win the respect of junior classes. He measured 
teaching force by the measure of interest and love for 
study tile teacher could create in the pupil, and these 
he gauged by the depth and simplicity of the teacher's 
knowledge of language as applied to the subject 
taught, his clearness of thought, his power to make 
others think as he thought, his worthiness of the 
pupil's respect and confidence, and his readiness to 
devote his energies to the pupils. The St. Jacobs 
school flourished and was conducted on the monitorial 
plan for three years, at the end of winch time the 
teacher resigned to take care of his father's farm in 
Daviess county, 111., wliere he arrived January 1S64. 
While the Rebellion was raging, under the 
call of December 19, 1864, he enlisted from the above 
county February 8, 1S65, in Company G., 147 111.

Vol. Inf., under Capt. A. C. Bardwell and Colonel 
Sickles, to serve one year or during the war. The 
regiment was assigned to ist Brigade, 2nd Separate 
Division, army of the Cumberland. The brigade 
moved direct to Dalton, Ga., and actively engaged in 
breaking up the guerrilla bands of northern Georgia. 
After the close of the war it engaged in provost guard 
and garrison duty in Georgia and Tennessee. During 
this time Mr. Myers was taken sick with typhoid 
fever and was taken to the Calhoun (Ga. ) hospital 
on June 20, 1S65. He was afterward removed to 
hospitals at Xashi.\'ille, Tenn., Loui.sville, Ky., New 
Albany and Jeffensonville, Ind., and Marine Hospital, 
Chicago, from which he was discharged Aug. 3, 1S65. 
He returned to Jo Daviess county. In 1S66 he 
became principal of the schools of Lena, and during 
1867 of the schools of Davis, 111. In 186S he moved 
to Franklin county, la., and located on the east half 
of Sec. 24, Twp. 91, Range 21, which he purchased. 
In 1S72 he was elected County Superintendent of the 
schools of Franklin comity, but remained on his 
farm while attending to the duties of his ofnce. 
In 1S77 he was re-elected and moved to Hampton. 
the county seat, where he still resides. At tlie close 
of his last term of office he built a creamery at Hamp- 
ton, the first one in Franklin county, starting business 
August iSSo. His business was very successful, 
due to careful management, and gradually increased 
until the annual sale of his products reached from

SKETCH EV ISAAC W. MVER.^, OF HAMPTON, lA. 



H. Andrew Meyer, b. iu York Co., Pa., May 29, 
1753 ; died Nov. 20, 1S33 ; mrd. Magdalena Keller. 
She was b. 1754 ; died 1S15. Andrew mrd. second 

wife Anna . She died Nov. 25, 1831. He was 

born in the log house, which then stood near the 
orchard on the south slope, of which mention is made 
in the sketch of his father, Christian Meyer. Eittle 
is known of his early life, but at 26 he appears as the 
purchaser of the south part of his father's estate. His 
brothers and sisters and their widowed mother joined 
in signing an instrument known as the old indenture 
of 1779, conveying the land to Andrew. This was 
dojie to satisfy a certificate made by his father in 1777, 
showing that the land was to fall to Andrew. Cir- 
cumstances show conclusively that he had been located 
on the land as early as 1775, at which time his 
marriage evidently took place. The land was co\-ered 
with heavy timber, and Andrew was content with a 
log house for the first ten years of his married life. 
In 17S4-S5 he built the stone house, which, though 
more than 1 10 years old, his descendants yet point out 
with pride as the home of Andrew Meyer. It has 
been engraved for this work by them at the instiga- 
tion of his great grandson, S. B. Myers, the present 
occupant of the liouse. Here he lived for half a 
century. Towards the close of his life his son Jacob 
became the owner of tlie homestead, but Andrew con- 
tinued to live in the house with his son.

Though a fanner, Andrew was a nnuister of the 
Gospel of the German Baptist Brethren, ranking as 
bishop. He was called to the ministry about 17S5. 
As in his fatlier's day their religions meetings were 
held in the residences of the settlement, the home of 
Andrew Meyer became one of the principal places of 
worship and remained such for 88 years or until 1S72, 
when churches were built. The declining part of liis 
life was no doubt entirely devoted to his ministerial 
labors, except perhaps the last few years. He sleeps 
in the old fannly cemetery. Children with first wife : 
Christian, Magdalena, Jacob, Henry. No issue with 
second wife.

the re.siilt in this case. At the age of 21 he went 
West, which he intended to do early in life, 
and was alxjut three years in Illinois. Returning 
in the Spring of 1S79 he, with Iiis brother George, 
entered Huntingdon (Pa.) Normal College, but after 
one year he returned to Illinois and entered the 
Mt. Morris College, graduating in the scientific course 
three years later. His brother now joined him. and 
they again spent a year togetlier at school. Choosing 
their work here they started on an extended tour to 
the Pacific coast July 16, 1884. This tour occupied 
ten months, including three months teaching in 
Oregon. Going twice across the continent, and from 
British Columbia to I\Iexico, they traveled more than 
10,000 miles. Meeting the Hoti. Mr. Bradburry in 
Southern California, the friend of James G. Blaine, he 
said upon learning of their tour, " you are entitled to 
be classed among the great American tourists." He 
has devoted himself to teaching and is very successful. 
He spent several years in the South, mainly to study 
the race problem. • Mr. Falkenstein returned to teach- 
ing in Georgia, and has pern:anently resided at 
Columbus, S.

VI. Rew George N. Falkenstcin, born in Springfield 
Tu-p., York Co., Pa., July 16, 1S59, on the old Falk- 
enstein homestead, which was owned by the family 
for 67 years, and is still to this day known by that 
name. When less than 7 }-ears of age liis father died 
(in 1S66) and eight years later his mother. The early 
breaking up of his home had a wonderful influence 
upon his life. He remaiiied on the farm until 19 
years of age, attending the county academy one 
session. In the Spring of 1S79 he entered Huntingdon 
(Pa.) Normal College (now Juniata College), gradu- 
ating in 1SS2. The following year was spent in 
Oberlin College in the study of the Classics. In the 
Fall of i8S3'he entered Alt. Morris (111.) Collcge,- 
intending to complete his college course, but at the 
close of one year the college course was interrupted, 
and in July 1S84, accompanied by his brother, he 
started on a trip to the Pacitic coast, spending one year 
in traveling and teaching. Returning to his native 
State in September 1SS5 he entered the mercantile 
business, but retired in less than two years, finditig it 
neither profitable or desirable. Having married in the 
meanwhile he moved to Kansas and returned to teach- 
ing. Finding teaching to his liking he decided upon 
further preparation for more advanced work. He 
entered the University of Michigan and devoted him- 
self entirely to the Sciences. Soon after entering he 
was called to the chair of sciences in the Mt. Morris 
College, and he began his work in that institution in 
Septemlier 1S89. Tliese were years of preparation 
and development, now followed four years of hard 
work. 

In May 1892 he was elected to the ministry under 
instructions from the annual conference for supplying 
men for the mission field. The Germantown Bretlu'en 
church, organized in 1723, the original mother church 
in America, was in need of a pastor, and applied to 
the General Mis-ion Board, Upon the Board's recom- 
s mendation the church gave him an unanimous call to 
become their resident minister and pastor in November 



— 696 — ^ 

1S92. The following Spring l-.e resigned his p-c.-itioii 
and removed with his family to Philadelpliia. On
