PREFACE 

A greater number of years than the compiler cares to 
acknowledge has been spent in collecting the data contained 
in the pages of this book. When first interested in the 
Colony at Germanna there was no assurance that there were 
any records in existence concerning its origin in Europe, 
the cause and manner of emigration; its establishment upon 
the frontier of Virginia, or its early history there; and the 
prospect of preparing a true chronicle did not seem promising. 
However, actuated and encouraged by the discovery of a few 
reliable records, it was felt that by diligent effort it would be 
possible to assemble sufficient material for an authentic history. 
The undertaking has been tedious and the search a long one, 
but it is hoped that the facts here presented will prove of 
interest and value to every descendant of a member of the 
Germanna Colony, as well as to students of Colonial Virginia. 

Exact references to only the more important sources of 
information consulted have been given, but great care has 
been exercised to avoid inaccuracies of statement. In places 
when it seemed essential to discuss records not indubitably 
established, pains have been taken to indicate clearly that 
there is some uncertainty. At least one personal journey to 
the district of Germany from wheoce the immigrants! came, 
and various visits to the several homes of the colonists in 
Virginia were made, before this historical, sketch could be 
concluded. 

A few portraits and several view:? of S'egeii and its vicinity 
have been introduced with the hope of adding interest to the 
pages. A convenient index containing both given and family 
names completes the volume. 

Compiling the genealogical records of a family for over two 
hundred years and assembling the names of 2300 members 
thereof in their order with correct dates and proper spelling

is do small task. Mud) indifference was encountered among 
those from whom data were expected and when requested to 
prepare biographic sketches of the more distinguished members 
Hi their families their inertia was remarkable indeed. On the 
other hand the loyal and energetic cooperation of a large 
Dumber of cootributors who pursued the lines into almost 
every State and Territory of our Country has made this work 
pos>il>!e. To them is largely due the successful accomplish- 
ment of our undertaking.

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

It will, perhaps, be a surprise to many to know, that in 
Virginia, the land of the Cavaliers, the first settled, and in 
many respects the most English of England's colonies in 
America, there was seated as early as 1714 an organized 
German colony. Nevertheless it is true. It was born of 
religious and economical troubles in Germany, brought to 
Virginia to exploit her iron mines for the benefit of her rulers, 
and was the forerunner of a numerous and virile element of 
her population. It is time that the fame of this colony, and 
the German element in Virginia's population, should be 
trumpeted abroad. 

Great events in the world's history have usually had their 
chroniclers, in some form or other. What a volume of history 
is to be found in The Catalogue of the Ships or on the Bayeux 
Tapestry! Comparing small things with large, one would 
expect to find that the first organized German colony to come 
to the territory, later to be known as the United States of 
America, should have had its contemporary historian. If 
such it had, the story he wrote has not survived these two 
hundred years, and until quite recently, this colony with its 
twelve sturdy German families was almost entirely forgotten. 

However, within this century the diligent and persistent 
efforts of a few interested persons, have brought to light, from 
many widely scattered sources in both America and Europe, 
a surprising number of documents and historical items, relating 
to this colony, from which its story can be largely recon- 
structed. It is the writer's purpose to gather all these docu- 
ments and shreds of history, together, into this sketch, hoping 
again to bring to life this German colony, with which our 
ancestor John Fishback came to America; for its history is 
his history. 

It will also be seen as we progress, that much has been 
2 1

learned aboul the emigrant himself and his immediate family; 
but the writer must caution Ins readers that not too much 
must be expected in this direction, and for reasons easily seen. 
No connections of the family can now be found in Germany; 
and l>nt little can be learned from the records or other public 
sources, there. Even in this country, excepting the wills of 
the emigrant and some of his sons, and a deed or two, fortu- 
nately preserved upon the records of Prince William, Fauquier 
and ( 'nlpeper counties, no writings of the first two generations 
of the family in this country are now known to be extant. 
Doubtless there were such, but owing to the destruction of 
the early family homes, the scattering of the people, and the 
ravages of the civil war, they cannot now be found. 

There is no family record of the first two generations known. 
We can be sure that there was once such a record in this 
country. A large Bible in which its record was kept was 
ever present in every Protestant German family of that time. 
Other families in the colony in which our ancestor came are 
known to have had such a Bible, why not John Fishback? 
We read that the Kemper German Bible weighed fifty-three 
pound-. Its record began with a short verse calling down the 
blessings of the Almighty upon the newly wedded pair. John 
Hoffman, another member of this colony, had such a Bible. 
So much store was set by it that he provided in his will that 
it should remain with the eldest of his fourteen children the 
first year; pass to the second child for the next year, and so 
on forever. 

If John Hoffman had such a Bible, doubtless his co-trustee 
and brother-in-law John Fishback had one. What would we 
not give to find it? The emigrant's home was broken up at 
an early date by the death of his first wife, and although he 
soon remarried, he did not live long thereafter. It seems 
almost certain that after hi- death there was soon a separation 
of the two seta of children, tor there is still a tradition that the 
fir-t wife'- children were reared by their Hager and Rector 
relatives. In all this confusion, in those primitive years, 
the greal Bible was forever lost. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 3 

Historical documents even down to the fourth generation 
are scarce, and while they are full of information as to that 
generation, they tell little of the early history of the family, 
simply saying that it came from Germany. Like so many 
documents of the kind, the writers take it for granted that 
every one knows about the family at that time. So if this 
historical essay is not as full and interesting as some of Macau- 
lay's, the writer begs the indulgence of his readers, for he 
thinks he has done as well as could be done with the mate- 
rials at hand. 

The earliest data known with reference to the family of 
John Fishback are to be found in the records of the Reformed 
Church of Siegen, in the present Prussian province of West- 
phalia, Germany. In those records the name is always 
spelled "Fischbach." The names of the two little German 
villages just west of Siegen are also spelled Fischbach. This 
is good German. 

The English equivalent of the word is "fish-brook." The 
original possessor of the name plainly lived upon a little 
stream, in which fish could be caught. To distinguish it from 
other streams, in which there were no fish, it was called 
"the fishbrook," and there was a man named Johannes living 
upon its banks, who, to distinguish him from some other 
Johannes, was called Johannes of the Fishbrook. When 
surnames came into fashion, and so many surnames were taken 
from the place where the party lived, this man came to be 
called Johannes Fischbach. This would indicate a rural origin 
for the family. 

Our ancestor must have anglicized his name very shortly 
after his coming to Virginia, because in all the grants from the 
Crown hereinafter mentioned the name is spelled Fishback, 
and his will, probated in 1733, is signed "John Fishback," 
and ever afterwards the name has so appeared in America. 
It is rather an unusual name. The writer could not find it 
about Siegen in 1900, and in this country has only found two- 
families by the name, which do not trace back to Virgiain.. 



4 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

One of these came to America shortly after the Napoleonic 
wars, from Alsace or Lorain (not far from Siegen); the other 
came to Alabama recently, from Westphalia, Germany, the 
province in which Siegen is located. Neither of these families 
could connect themselves in any way with our Fishback 
family. All of them, apparently running back to about the 
same locality in Germany, would seem to point to a common 
origin. 

We have positive evidence that our emigrant ancestor, the 
John Fishback found with the Germanna colony, came from 
the vicinity of the city of Siegen in the Prussian Province of 
Westphalia in Germany. Here it is: Charles Kemper (1756- 
1841), the youngest son of John Peter Kemper (1717-1778), 
eldest son of the Kemper emigrant and of Elizabeth Fishback 
(1723-1768), daughter by his first wife of the emigrant John 
Fishback, begins the record in his family Bible as follows: 

"John Peter Kemper son of John Kemper of the town of 
Musen near the city of Siegen in the State or County of 
Nassau, in Germany, was born in Germanna in Virginia 
December 25th, 1717. Elizabeth Kemper the daughter of 
John Fishback of the town of Truback near the city of Siegen, 
in the State of Nassau in Germany was born at Germantown 
Virginia February 13th, 1723." 

Charles Kemper was twelve years old when his mother died, 
and surely would know from her who her father and mother 
were. Further, Charles Kemper lived among his mother's 
people, and was on terms of the closest intimacy with them 
all his life, and his own father, who was old enough to remember 
John Fishback and Pastor Hager, lived with Charles Kemper 
until the father's death in 17S8, and he and they would surely 
all know from whence the family came and who they were. 
This record, which was most likely commenced about the time 
of the marriage of Charles Kemper (1786), for the next item 
after the above gives the date of his marriage, is a record 
from sources as nearly contemporaneous with the events as 
can now be found, and is undoubtedly correct. We must 
start with it as true.

HISTORICAL SKETCH. 5 

It will be noticed that in the above record the name of the 
village in Germany from whence it is stated the Fishback 
family came is spelled Truback and not Truppbach, as the 
record from the Siegen church and the map shows it should 
be spelled. The German language was spoken in the house- 
hold of John Peter Kemper until Rev. James Kemper, the 
elder brother of Charles, was about twelve years old, that is 
until about 1766, but James Kemper states he had almost 
entirely forgotten it by 1815. The early English writings of 
Charles Kemper show the German idioms cropping out, but 
no doubt by 1786 his German had largely disappeared and 
Truback is a very fair attempt at anglicizing Truppbach. 
There is no reason to cast any reflections on the statements 
in the foregoing entry in the Bible, because of the difference 
in the spelling of the name of this village. 

Now let us turn to Germany, and see if we can identify our 
family on that side of the ocean. The writer has in his 
possession a letter from the Treasurer of the German Reformed 
Church at Siegen over his signature, and attested by the seal 
of the church, which contains extracts from the records of 
the church certified to be as follows: 
"John Fischbach, b. 12 July, 1691. 

Father — Philip Fischbach. 

Mother — Elizabeth, born Heimbach. 

Philip Fischbach born in March, 1661. 

Father of Philip Fischbach was Johannes Fischbach. 

Johannes Fischbach born 23rd November, 1631." 

The records show that this family was "of the Village of 
Truppbach." The letter states that there is no record of the 
marriage or death of John Fischbach in the church records. 
The letter of the treasurer is entirely in German, but it has 
been thought best to translate the extracts given above. It 
will be noticed in the genealogy that one of the sons of the 
emigrant by his second marriage was named Philip. In the 
absence of a positive statement, the writer thinks that the 
identification of the John Fishback of Germanna and German- 



THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

town, Virginia, with the John Fischbach of Truppbach is as 
complete as it can possibly be made. It will later be seen 
that we have positive contemporaneous statements that this 
Germantown colony came from Siegen, or its vicinity. 

The foregoing information from the records of the Siegen 
church was sent the writer in the fall of the year 1900, and 
was obtained by the treasurer of the church after a long and 
very laborious search of its early records. These records are 
not indexed, and although the text is German, the wording 
is half German and half church Latin, and after two hundred 
years and more is impossible to be read by one not familiar 
with it, as the writer can attest, and only decipherable by 
one long accustomed to its form. 

Now where are Siegen and Truppbach, and what do we 
know about them? 

The county of Xassau-Siegen, which dates back to the 
thirteenth century, was southeast of Cologne. It belonged 
to the family of Xassau-Dillenberg — one of whose members 
about the middle of the sixteenth century by intermarriage 
with the heiress of Orange in France became entitled to be 
called Prince of Orange. The name of "William (of Nassau) 
the Silent, Prince of Orange" born April 16, 1533, will be 
remembered and honored as long as we have civil and religious 
liberty. The rulers of Xassau-Siegen were among the first 
fruits of the Reformation; but the country was on the border 
line between Protestantism and Catholicism, always remained 
partly Catholic, and occasionally a ruler was a Catholic — and 
then cruel persecutions were inflicted upon their Protestant 
subjects, which did not cease even with the treaty of West- 
phalia in 1649. This kept the people divided and unsettled, 
and the condition continued long after John Fishback and the 
other members of the colony started for America, and as late 
as 17 12. when the county passed into the hands of William IV 
of Orange. 

Siegen was the chief town in the county. It was formerly 
a walled town, and grew up around an old castle, one of the

principal residences of the counts of Nassau. The old building 
still exists, and stands on a hill, high above the modern town, 
and with its solid walls must have been almost impregnable 
before heavy artillery was invented. The modern city has 
spread in all directions from the base of the hill. It contains 
at the present time about 25,000 people and is a busy thriving 
place. It is situated on the river Sieg about sixty miles 
southeast of Cologne, a little east of the direct line between 
Cologne and Frankfort and not quite half way to Frankfort. 
It is a little off the main railroad route from Cologne to 
Frankfort, but through trains run from Cologne to Siegen, 
making the distance in about an hour and a half. 

When William the Silent during the revolt of the Nether- 
lands from Philip II of Spain was compelled by the Spanish 
Governor to leave his home at Breda in Holland with his 
second wife Anne of Saxony and their young children and flee 
into Germany, his family placed the castle of Siegen at his 
disposal and here he lived while he was organizing and drilling 
the forces with which he intended to attack the Spaniards in 
Holland. When he started on his expedition, his wife and 
children were left in the castle. 

At this same time there was living in the little village which 
had grown up about the old castle, another refugee from the 
religious and political troubles in Holland, one John Rubens 
with his wife. Here on June 29, 1577, their child Peter Paul 
Rubens, destined to be one of the world's greatest painters, 
was born. 

The castle remained for many years after this a residence 
of the Nassau family, and the modern city has gradually grown 
up around it, largely engaged in iron manufactures from the 
ores mined in all the hills round about it. 

The older part of the town has many ancient buildings and 
with the castle presents quite a picturesque appearance. The 
present entrance into the courtyard of the castle is through a 
great archway ascending under the walls. This courtyard 
had anything but a warlike appearance the sunny afternoon

in mid-July when the writer saw it. It was nicely sodded and 
seemed to be the rendezvous for all the nursemaids with their 
little charges, in the city. A magnificent view of the city and 
surrounding country is to be had from the castle walls. 

The streets of Siegen run up and down the hill, and are 
mostly narrow, paved with granite or cobblestones. In the 
old part of the town the houses are high, with peaked gables 
overhanging the street. The public square is on the side of 
the hill as you go from the railway station to the castle; 
it is planted with shrubbery and covered with grass, and is a 
pretty place with benches all about it, and contains a life-size 
equestrian statue of the old Emperor William. To the right 
side of the square as you go up the hill stands the church, 
quite an old building, Gothic in its general outlines, and in 
good preservation. It has a very heavy tower, which seems 
far too large for the church. This church is German Re- 
formed, as all the Protestant churches in the neighborhood are, 
not Lutheran. It is quite an important part of the life of the 
town, and in vigorous existence, with pastor and assistants, 
secretaries and treasurers, and a board of governors. It 
maintains an office in a building apart from the church, and 
the documents over the treasurer's signature come authenti- 
cated with the seal of the church. The only information we 
have of the family of our Fishback ancestor, before his coming 
to this country, is contained in the records of this church. 

The writer visited Siegen and the surrounding country in 
July, 1900. His Kemper ancestors came from Miisen, a village 
now containing about 2,000 people, about nine miles north- 
east of Siegen, and you must first go to Siegen to reach Miisen. 
We (the writer and an interpreter, for the writer must needs 
admit that although so many of his ancestors spoke German 
the language was as hard for him to learn as Greek, and that 
he left college with so little of it that it was necessary to 
take an interpreter with him into the back counties in Ger-

(smoker) and there were four drummers in it going down to 
Siegen, and what a hot evening it was, and how those fellows 
did smoke. The interpreter did. The writer does not, and 
long before we reached Siegen he felt much like a Westphalian 
ham, for which the country is renowned. The train had one 
merit at least: it was fast, and we made the sixty miles in less 
than two hours. We soon came to the narrow, rocky valley 
of the river Sieg, and turned eastward up it. The railway 
continually crossed this crooked stream on heavy stone arches, 
or shot through tunnels under the shoulders of the hills. As 
long as we could see, the people were working in the little culti- 
vated patches along the railway, the women with the men. 
We saw many women mowing with the men all round Siegen. 
Give thanks, ye gentle readers, descendants of John Fishback, 
that he came to America, and did not leave you to be brought 
up around Truppbach. The houses were nearly all of timber 
construction, filled in with brick, plastered and whitewashed. 
However the country looked well cultivated and prosperous. 
The Westphalian peasantry are known all over Germany for 
their thrift and sterling qualities. Our train drew up to the 
station at Siegen in the valley to the north of the Sieg, and 
we climbed into an old-fashioned omnibus, and went rumbling 
over the bridge with the Sieg foaming below it, and clattered 
up the steep granite-paved streets to the right of the public 
square, where we found under the shadow of the great tower 
of the church, "The Golden Lion," reported the best hotel 
in the town. Our supper consisted of black bread and coffee, 
and then we were shown to our room, with no carpet on the 
floor, only a home-made rug near the bed. There, quietly 
reposing on top of the bed, with the thermometer at 90°, was 
a feather bed, a foot thick. It reposed on the floor for the 
remainder of the night. Everything was clean and neat and 
comfortable, but we were way off the beaten lines of travel, 
and the comforts of even the Dom Hotel in Cologne were not

to be found. If this was Siegen and its neighborhood in 1900 
what was it in 1700? We were up early the next morning 
and after running the gauntlet of eight servants, none of whom 
had we seen before, but who held out their hands and clamored 
for tips, started out to Miisen. Along the highways the villages 
were almost continuous and every place was humming with 
activity. Factories in newly constructed buildings were to 
be seen on everv hand, the hav harvest was in full blast in 
the meadows along the Sieg and every one was in the fields, 
men, women and children. When we went further up the 
valley towards Miisen, it was the women that were doing the 
work in the fields; the men were all in the factories. The 
women would gather the hay into large square pieces of 
muslin, like sheets, draw the ends over and tie them, put the 
bundle on their heads, and go clattering up the granite-paved 
highway toward the village in their wooden shoes. We did 
see one cart, with broad tires, drawn by an ox near Miisen. 
The people are primitive in their ways of living, and the 
country is poor compared with the United States, and far 
behind it, although they were continually telling us how many 
changes there had been in the ways of living and doing business 
in the previous few years, since the industrial revolution in 
Germany had begun. 

The names of practically all the twelve families of the 
colony were found in the immediate vicinity of Siegen. The 
map shows villages of Ober (upper) and Xader (lower) Holtz- 
claw, and Ober and Xader Fischbach. The Brumback 
family was not found, but they were not hunted for, as they 
were not known at the time to be members of the colony. 
For some time the Hitt family could not be found, but the 
Pastor of the little Protestant church, dating back to 1585, at 
Ferndorf, a village on the highway from Siegen to Miisen, 
finally solved the difficulty. When he was asked if there 
was a family by the name of Hitt in his parish he shook his 
head, then said: there can be no Geman family by that name, 
for all German family names mean something, and Hitt means

nothing in German. Finally he said: Oh! it is Heide. He 
pronounced the " ei " like long " i," the " d " very nearly like 
our " t," and the final " e " so short that you could hardly hear 
it. And this is exactly the way Congressman Hitt pronounced 
his name. Heide means "a meadow man" and the pastor told 
us there were many people by that name in the meadows over 
between Ferndorf and Antzhausen, but there were none in the 
Ferndorf parish. This is given, as a sample of the way in which 
foreign names have been anglicized, and to show how careful 
one must be in searching for his name, on the other side. 

Truppbach is a little village in a narrow valley running to 
the left, as you look north from Siegen; it is about a mile and 
a half from Siegen and is just out of sight from the castle walls, 
behind the rugged "Fischbacher Berg" (Hill), which juts 
out into the valley of the Sieg. Truppbach is rather a suburb 
of Siegen. It has no church, the people all attend the church 
in Siegen. No one by the name of Fishbach could be found 
in the village, nor heard of anywhere in the vicinity. No 
search was made for the name Heimbach, for at that time it 
was not known that it had any connection with the Fishback 
family, the record heretofore given having been sent to 
America by the church treasurer after the writer's return. 
The name Fishback does not now appear at the Fischbach 
villages nor does it appear in the records of the church at 
Ober Fischbach, acccording to a letter from its pastor, and 
how these villages obtained their name can only be con- 
jectured, apparently not from the family. They may be on 
the banks of a "fish-brook." The writer is inclined to 
think that all that can be learned of the family is in the 
records of the Siegen church, and, according to the church 
treasurer, what is given above is all these records contain. 

The writer believes he is the only descendant of our emigrant 
ancestor, who, in all these two hundred years, since he left 
Truppbach, has stood in the Siegen church, where John 
Fishback once worshipped. It were well worth the time and 
money of other members of the family to go a little out of their

way when they are "globe-trotting" and see this little old 
church. It is the one place that is surely about the same as 
it was when our ancestor was baptized in it. The descendants 
of this man have numbered fully 3,500 and more than 1,000 
of them are living today. If this family wants to perpetuate 
the name of a worthy man, and herald its fame all over 
Europe, there is no surer way to do it than to place a stained- 
glass window to the memory of John Fischbach and his wife 
Agnes Hager in this Siegen church. It would only require 
a small contribution from each one, and would be something 
unique. Think of it. 

Just here the writer wishes to contradict a statement often 
seen or heard, that the members of the Germanna colony 
were refugees from their own country. It has been called a 
Palatinate colony in some quarters. But this is not true. 
Siegen is not in the Palatinate. "Our Colony" as we shall 
see was not forced to leave home, as many of the people of 
that unfortunate country were, some of whom came to 
America. The members of "Our Colony" left their homes of 
their own accord. Doubtless they came to America to 
improve their condition, politically and economically, but 
they were sent for, came voluntarily, and came at the request 
of the rulers of Virginia. They came from one of the most 
prosperous provinces in Germany. No one can go through 
the villages around Siegen and not note the intelligence and 
thrift of the people. This was just as marked two hundred 
years ago as it is today. The members of this colony could 
all read and write, and the rapidity with which they acquired 
property, both real and personal, in Virginia bespeaks their 
thrift, intelligence and prosperity. 

But it is time "Our Colony" was on its way to the New 
World. In the year 1710 Alexander Spottswood was ap- 
pointed Governor of Virginia by Queen Anne. A new era was 
beginning for the colony. The governor was young, ambitious, 
anxious that the colony should prosper, and not averse to 
making a fortune for himself. Iron in workable quantities was

soon discovered upon land which Spottswood and his associ- 
ates owned. In a letter to the Council of Trade, in England, 
dated October 24, 1710, he outlines a project, which he says 
he intends to submit to the next Virginia General Assembly 
for working and improving the iron mines lately discovered, 
towards the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia.* This is 
the very first pointer towards "Our Colony." Subsequent 
letters of Spottswood tell how the Assembly refused at public 
expense to take up his project; and how he was continually 
urging the council to persuade Queen Anne to take it up, and 
spend public money on it, down to July, 1712. Just at this 
time the colony founded by Christopher Baron de Graffenried, 
at Newberne, North Carolina, was destroyed by the Indians. 
De Graffenried was taken prisoner by the Indians and carried 
into captivity. He finally persuaded them to release him, 
abandoned his colony, and made his way to Virginia, where 
Spottswood befriended him. At Spottswood's request de 
Graffenried examined Virginia with a view to locating iron 
mines, and in a letter to the Council of July 26, 1712,f Spotts- 
wood says de Graffenried feels sure there are iron mines in 
the colony, that he was familiar with mines in his native 
country Switzerland, and still has relations there interested 
in mining, " and by their interest he can procure skilled work- 
men out of Germany for carrying on this work." Here is 
the second pointer towards "Our Colony." All this time 
Spottswood was trying to get the Queen to take up the pro- 
ject but he failed, and we will later see he took it up himself. 
Spottswood is the man who was responsible for bringing " Our 
Colony" to America. 

Spottswood's letters do not say so, but after the Queen 
refused to entertain the iron project it is apparent that he 
entered into some negotiations with de Graffenried, and 
authorized him to procure and send to Virginia "skilled

workmen out of Germany to open mines in Virginia," for 
when the colony came, Spottswood in his letters to the 
Commissioners of Trade says: "These Germans were invited 
over some years ago by the Baron de Graffenried," and de 
Graffenried's own account tells of writing to the miners from 
America. De Graffenried tried to return to England from 
Virginia, but as he was in debt to inhabitants of that colony, 
and as the Colonial laws forbade any ship captain, under 
heavy penalties, taking from the colony any one in debt, the 
Baron left Williamsburg, Easter, 1713, went all the way to 
New York on horseback, and after remaining a fortnight in 
that city sailed for Bristol; from there went to London, 
where he arrived some time in the early fall of the year 1713.* 
When de Graffenried reached London he unexpectedly found 
the colony there, stranded and almost starving. He was out 
of money and the colonists did not have enough to pay their 
passage to Virginia, but were depending on him. Before 
Spottswood, the chief one to benefit by the colony, could be 
communicated with, the season had grown so late that no 
ships were starting for Virginia before spring, so the colony 
was compelled to stay in London all winter. But it will 
be better to permit de Graffenried to tell of their stay in 
London and of their start for the New World, in his own 
language. This account is taken from his autobiography, 
which is in manuscript, in the French language, preserved in 
the public library of Berne, Switzerland. An accurate trans- 
lation follows: 

From the Autobiography of Christopher de 
Graffenried. 

"On my arrival in London I was extremely surprised to 
learn that the master miner had arrived with 40 other miners. 
This caused me much trouble, care, concern and expense, 
since these people came so inconsiderately, without orders, 

* Spottswood's Letters, Vol. II, page 70. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 15 

with the expectation of finding everything necessary for their 
maintenance, as well as work in the mines, but there was 
nothing for them to do, and my purse was so empty that it 
was with difficulty that I could supply my most urgent 
necessities, having used all my money in America, and being 
as yet without a bill of exchange from Berne. Thus it was 
impossible to assist so large a number, and the reader can 
easily conjecture what care and embarrassment all this 
caused me, since these people were persuaded that according 
to the agreement, I was compelled to assist them. This 
would have been so had they come at my order. I thereto- 
fore wrote them several letters from America in German, of 
which they received some, in which I had advised that the 
master miner should not come until new orders were received, 
and saying that there was nothing for them to do as yet by 
reason of the unexpected Indian war in Carolina, and that 
he (Michael) had not yet indicated the place, but that if the 
master miner nevertheless wished to come alone or in company 
with one or two, he could do so, but merely to see the place. 
But without paying attention to what I had just written him 
he made preparations, and came to London with his company 
and all their baggage. 

"But what was there to do here? I could not give them 
better advice than to return home. This displeased them very 
much, so much so that they preferred to serve for four years 
as servants in America. However there was no vessel ready 
to sail for America, and it was therefore necessary for them 
to remain in London all winter, but where to obtain suste- 
nance? This gave me an inconceivable amount of trouble, 
so that finally I was moved to apply to several Lords for work 
and bread for these people. They were then employed to 
make or repair a large dyke (or dam) but a heavy rain set in 
and all was overturned. This made it necessary to devise 
new expedients for their subsistence. I found a place for 
one party but not for all. In the meantime I was anxious to 
hurry home, fearing to travel in winter, and already feeling

an attack of the gout, which could ill accommodate itself to 
the cold. 

"Finally I found two wealthy merchants doing business in 
Virginia to whom I stated and recommended this affair as 
best I could. With that I also consulted a noble Lord to 
whom I was honestly (well) recommended by the Governor of 
Virginia, concerning the miners, to the end that he was able 
to serve me, and render for me his good offices at Court. We 
concluded that these people should put their money together, 
taking account of the same proportionally and that one of the 
above mentioned merchants should procure the remainder 
necessary for the transportation and maintenance for the 
miners, and that the Governor of Virginia should receive, and 
care for them on their arrival at Williamsburg and pay the 
captain of the vessel, who in turn should return to the mer- 
chants of London the money advanced by them. On this 
subject I wrote a long letter to Gov. Spottswood, to whom I 
represented as best I could both affairs, saying that if the 
miners did not turn out as desired, these good people should 
be sent as a colony to the land which we conjointly own in 
Virginia, situated not far from the place where we found raw 
materials (by which we presumed we had silver mines there) 
where they would be able to locate through the good offices and 
care of the Governor, but in case there was not sufficient 
indications to show silver mines, to look elsewhere. And 
since there are no iron or copper forges in Virginia, although 
there are quantities of such minerals, one will be able to trade 
in these, for which no royal patents are needed, as in the case 
of those of silver. 

"In the hope that this will succeed I recommended these 
people to the Almighty, wishing them also a happy voyage. 
Thus they departed in the beginning of the year 1714." 

It seems there is a manuscript almost identical with the 
above in the public library of Yverdon, Switzerland. It has 
been translated and is to be found in the Colonial Records of 
North Carolina.* 

* Vol. I, page 973. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 17 

There are several differences in the two manuscripts. Just 
before the last sentence, the North Carolina manuscript has 
"Note by the author. They are actually settled on the 
Governor's land where they have started a small colony." 
After the last sentence this appears : " A whole year has elapsed, 
without my receiving any news from the Governor or from 
them and I feel very anxious." In the first sentence of the 
North Carolina translation after the word "miner," the name 
"T. Tusties Albrecht" appears, and it reads 70 not "40 other 
miners." The writer has the original French of the first sen- 
tence of this Yverdon manuscript. It was carelessly copied 
for the North Carolina Records. The name is J. Justus 
Albrecht, and it is 40 not 70. This is important, as will 
later be seen. 

It is not easy to account for the name of the head miner 
being given in the Yverdon manuscript and not in the one at 
Berne. And what became of him? A man with the name 
J. Justus Albrecht could not hide himself under a bushel, 
especially as he is referred to as the head man in the colony. 
Had he reached America we surely would have heard of him. 
After diligent search the writer could not hear of such a 
family in Virginia. It will later be seen he was not among 
those to whom land was assigned at Germantown, nor was 
he one of those who made affidavits to obtain land warrants. 
It is practically certain that he did not come to America. 
Perhaps he became discouraged over the hard times the 
colonists had in London and the prospect before him; perhaps 
he found good employment in London, and remained there; 
or had good prospects in Germany and returned to Siegen; 
or possibly he may have died on the long and perilous journey 
to the New World, as thousands of emigrants did in those 
days. 

Diligent but unsuccessful effort has been made to find just 

where the colony spent the winter in England, for if this 

could be determined it is likely that records could there be 

discovered of the eight marriages which the writer thinks 

3

took place in England, among the members of this colony. 
This would give the family names of the wives of these men, 
and would perhaps solve the mystery of the number of persons 
of which this colony was composed. A possible clew has 
quite recently come to light. When John Rector, the eldest 
son of one of the emigrants, moved to Upper Fauquier, he 
laid out a town which was incorporated by an act of the 
Legislature, under the name of " Maidstone." This would 
be a very unusual name to be given a town in Virginia by a 
German, for Maidstone is the County Town of Kent, England. 
There was until lately in existence among the descendants of 
John Rector a letter which stated that John Rector so named 
this town, because he was born at Maidstone in England. It 
is quite possibly that "Our Colony" was building the dyke 
which failed, down in the low country about Canterbury, 
Rochester or Maidstone, and that these marriages took place 
in the vicinity. But somewhere in England, and in some 
way, the Colony did exist during that winter, and some time 
in the early spring it started to America. We have proof of 
the starting of the Colony from the Journal of the English 
Board of Trade. 

On March 12, 1714, the Journal contains a reference to a 
colony of miners that must be the above colony. It says that 
Col. Blakiston (the agent of Virginia in London) attended to 
give some information in answer to a memorial of the Earl 
of Orkney relating to some miners who had gone to Virginia, 
"lie represented that several miners had already been sent 
from home at a great charge and that the undertakers must 
be at considerable expense before they could hope for any 
return or advantage from this project." This certainly fits 
"Our Colony," and it will be noticed that they were on their 
way by March 12, 1714. 

Now let us turn to Virginia and watch its arrival. On 
March 15, 1713 (1714), Spottswood writes:* "To Col. Blakis- 
ton: S'R: About the beginning of January I received y'rs of 

* Spottswood's Letters, Vol. II, page 66. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 19 

3rd July, 20th September and 10th October, w'ch gave me 
an account of y'r proceedings in relation to the mines, as well 
as y'r sentiments of w'ch ye Baron had propos'd, about trans- 
porting his miners, and by y'r letter of ye 9th December which 
I received the other day, I perceive you have altered y'r 
opinion by sending over these people partly at my charge." 
He writes again: 

"To the Lords Commissioners of Trade, July 21st 1714* 

"My Lords. ... I continue, all resolved to settle out our 
tributary Indians, as a guard to ye frontiers, and in order to 
supply that part which was to have been covered by the 
Tuscaruros, I have placed here a number of Protestant 
Germans, built them a fort and furnished it with two pieces 
of cannon, and some ammunition which will awe the stragling 
parties of Northern Indians, and be a good barrier for all 
that part of the country. These Germans were invited over 
some years ago by the Baron de Graffenried who has Majesty's 
letters to ye Governor of Virginia to furnish them with land 
upon their arrival. They are generally such as have been 
employed in their own country as miners . . . ." 

So that according to de Graffenried's account the colony 
left London in the early part of the year 1714; it had not 
reached Virginia on March 15, when the first of the above 
letters was written, but by July 21 it had arrived, and been 
placed in a fort on the frontier. It would hardly seem the 
proper thing to place a band of helpless German emigrants at 
a dangerous place on the frontier, but by doing so a fort and 
habitations were built for them at public expense, and their 
location was near where his iron works were later to be erected. 

The mining scheme crops out in full force in the next letter, 
and it further appears that these people brought over for his 
benefit were relieved from the payment of taxes. 

To Col. Blakiston, December ye 1st 1714. f He returns

thanks for "his endeavors in relation to the affairs of the 
mines." Hopes B. will renew his endeavors to his present 
Majesty (George I) "to obtain as moderate terms as ye 
adventurers in his own territories of Germany had," says it 
may be some consideration to the King that the mines are to 
be worked by persons of the same nation and religion, "that 
they will be a vast charge without any prospect of benefit till 
they can be set to work. I have obtained for them from the 
Assembly an exemption from all taxes for seven years, which 
may be an encouragement to others of the same country to 
come over, but I hope their passage will be at their own 
charge." 

One more letter refers to our colony.* 

To ye Lords Commissioners of Trade, Janry 27, 1714 (1715) 

My Lords . . . (Sends copies of the Assembly Journals) 
"The act for exempting certain German Protestants from ye 
payment of levys, and is made in favor of several families of 
that nation, who upon the encouragement of the Baron de 
Graffenried came over hither in hopes to find out mines, but 
the Baron's misfortunes obliged him to leave the country before 
their arrival. They have been settled in ye frontiers of Rappa, 
and subsisted since chiefly at my charge and the contributions 
of some gentlemen that have a prospect of being reimbursed 
by their labor, whenever his Majesty shall be pleased, by 
ascertaining his share, to give encouragement for working 
these mines and I hope the kind reception they have found 
here will invite more of the same nation to transport them- 
selves to this colony." 

It is clear from these letters that so far but one German 
colony had come to Virginia, although others came soon after. 
It is also clear from de Graffenried's manuscript, and from the 
letters, that this colony came direct from London to Virginia. 
Dr. Philip Slaughter in his valuable "History of St. Mark's

HISTORICAL SKETCH. 21 

Parish," in which parish Germanna was later located, con- 
jectures that the Germanna Colony was a remnant of the 
Newberne, N. C, colony, escaped from the Indian massacre; 
and following him, this has since been positively asserted. 
This is clearly a mistake, for de Graffenried had engaged this 
colony, he had written for them from America, he met them 
in London in the fall of 1713. Spottswood was written to 
about them from London in the fall of that year and was 
expecting them, and expected to pay their passage and had 
done so, as he says, and the colony reached Virginia direct 
from London sometime between March 15 and July 21, 1714. 
As the Newberne massacre took place in September, 1711, it 
was impossible for "Our Colony" to have been there at the 
time of the massacre. These letters also disprove Dr. 
Slaughter's story that this Germanna colony became involved 
in a dispute with the captain of the ship on their arrival in 
Virginia about their passage money, and the Governor hap- 
pening along, agreed to pay their passage, if they would work 
for him. This may have happened with some of the later- 
coming German colonies, but the Governor was expecting the 
Germanna colony, and to pay its passage, and he did pay it. 

So the colony reached Virginia, and Spottswood at once took 
charge of it. In some way it must go to his iron properties. 
It was determined at once that in that quarter a defence was 
needed against the Indians. The reason for bringing over 
these Germans was carefully concealed, the blame of it is 
thrown on de Graffenried, and not a word is said about iron. 
The Governor appealed at once to his council, and on April 
28, 1714, the following order of the Virginia Executive Council 
was made:* 

"The Governor acquainting the Council that Sundry 
Germans to the number of forty two men women & children 
who were invited hither by the Baron de Graffenried, are 
new arrived, but that the said Baron not being here to take

22 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

care of this settlement, The Governor therefore proposed 
to settle them above the falls of the Rappahannock River to 
serve as a Barrier to the Inhabitants of that part of the 
country against the Incursions of the Indians and desiring the 
opinion of the council whether in consideration of their useful- 
ness for that purpose, the charge of building them a fort, 
clearing a road to their settlement & carrying thither two 
peeces of cannon & some ammunition may not properly be 
defrayed by the publick. 

"It is the unanimous opinion of the Board that the Sd 
Settlement, tending so much to the Security of that part of 
the Frontiers It is reasonable that the expense proposed 
by the Governor in making thereof, should be defrayed at 
the publick charge of the Government, and that a quantity 
of powder & ball be delivered for their use out of her Majesties 
Magazine. And because the s'd Germans arriving so late 
cannot possibly this year cultivate any ground for their 
Subsistance, much less be able to pay the publick Levies of 
the Government, It is the opinion of this Board that they be 
put under the denomination of Rangers to exempt them from 
that charge, and for the better enabling the Sd Germans to 
supply by hunting the want of other provisions, It is also 
ordered that all other persons be restrained from hunting on 
:any unpatented lands near the settlement." 

This order shows that the colony had reached Virginia 
before April 28, 1714. 

But some Virginia watch-dog of the treasury had seen 
through Spottswood's scheme of building habitations for his 
miners at public expense and filed written charges against him 
with the Board of Trade in London. The Board ordered the 
Governor to answer the charges. He did so under date of 
February 7, 1715 (1716). These answers tell so much about 
the Germanna colony that they are quoted from liberally.*

ing the frontiers by building two forts, one at the head of

misdemeanor and breach of his oath, and of his Majestys 
royal instructions, against his being concerned in trade" 

The Governor says* "... As to the other settlement 
named Germanna there are about forty Germans men women 
and children, who having quitted their country upon the 
invitation of the Herr Graffenried, and being grievously 
disappointed by his failure to perform his engagements to 
them, and they arriving also here just at a time when the 
Tuscaruro Indians departed from the treaty, they had made 
with this goverment to settle in its Northern frontiers, I did 
both in compassion to these poor strangers and in regard to 
the safety of the country place them together upon a piece 
of land several miles without the inhabitants, where I have 
built them habitations and subsisted them until they were 
able by their own labor to provide for themselves, and I 
presume I may without a crime or misdemeanor endeavor to 
put them in an honest way of paying their just debts." 

Querry 15f "Whether the Gov'r denying to his Majesty's 
subjects to take up land, and at the same time gave leave or 
order to another person tc*take up 12000 acres to be patented 
in the name of Wm Robinson, to his own private use, and 
leasing the same to ye Germans (not permitting them to take 
ye same up to their own use) at such rents as shall be agreed 
on between the said Governor and ye Germans is not arbitrary 
illegal and oppressing his Majestys subjects, and a breach of 
his Majesty's royal instructions." 

The Governor answers J "I have frequently mentioned 
how the Germans came to be settled on this land, and 'tis 
well known that when they arrived in this country, they were

so far from being able to undergo the charge of taking the 
land for themselves that they had not wherewithal! to sub- 
sist, so that besides the expense of £ 150 for their trans- 
portation, they are still indebted for near two years charge of 
subsisting them. I cannot therefore imagine myself guilty 
of any oppression by placing them as tenants on my own 
land, when if I had pursued the common methods of the 
country, instead of being my tenants, they might have been 
my servants for five years. Nor are the Germans insensible 
of the favor I have done them . . . The terms upon which 
the Germans are settled will not appear very like oppression 
seeing they have lived for two years upon this land, without 
paying any rent at all and that all which is demanded of them 
for the future, is no more than twelve davs work a vear for 
each household, which is not so much as rent for their houses, 
without any land, would have cost in any other part of the 
country .... There are not 12000 acres but 1200." 

This is a fine case of special pleading on the part of the 
Governor, to cover up the public money spent on the Germans, 
to hide the iron scheme, and to throw the blame of the coming 
of the Germans on de Graffenried, but we will forgive him 
because he tells us so much about " Our Colony." It consisted 
of "forty persons men women and children," and it will be 
remembered that de Graffenried's colony consisted of "40 
miners." They are the people de Graffenried had invited 
over, and whose passage Spottswood had agreed to pay and 
he had paid it to the extent of £ 150. They had been at 
Germ anna nearly two years when this answer was written in 
February, 1716, and we know that "Our Colony" reached 
Virginia between March 15 and April 28, 1714, and we will 
shortly see this date confirmed from another source. The 
identity seems complete. 

We see further that these people had not been sold as 
servants, as has so often been stated, they were tenants on 
the Governor's lands at Germanna, rendering a rent. It is 
undoubtedly true that some of the later-coming German 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 25 

colonists to Virginia were sold as servants to pay their passage 
money, but "Our Colony" — the first German colony to come 
to Virginia, the Germanna colony — was always free and always 
had the care and assistance of the Governor. 

But where is Germanna? Or rather where was it? For 
this famous town of Governor Spottswood; the first German 
settlement in Virginia ; the first county town of Spottsylvania 
County; where St. George's Parish was organized and its 
first church built; where the first iron furnace in America was 
built and the first pig iron made, as Spottswood claimed; the 
place from which the famous expedition of "the Knights of 
the Golden Horseshoe" started; where the first German 
Reformed congregation in the United States was organized, 
its first pastor settled, and its first services held — is no more. 
In Civil War times it was only a ford in the river; it is now 
forgotten. Take your map of Virginia, and in the extreme 
northeastern corner of Orange County on a horseshoe penin- 
sula of about four hundred acres, with the Rapidan to the 
north, west and east of it, was the site of this famous town. 
Here "Our Colony" was located in the summer of 1714 
ostensibly to protect the frontiers from the Indians, in reality 
to work iron mines for the Governor on his lands, near at hand, 
and to make iron for him. 

Col. Wm. Byrd locates Germanna, in his "History of the 
Dividing Line," in 1732, Vol. II, page 64. "The river winds 
in the form of a horseshoe about Germanna, making it a 
peninsula containing about 400 acres. Rappahanak forks 
about fourteen miles below this place." Both branches of 
the river were formerly called Rappahannock, the southern 
branch is now called Rapidan. 

The earliest description of Germanna that has been found 
is in the diary of John Fountaine.* He with his friend, John 
Clayton, and perhaps several other persons, visited the 
settlement on November 20 and 21, 1715. He tells about it 
as follows: "About 5 P. M. we crossed a bridge, that was

made by the Germans and about 6 we arrived at the German 
settlement. We went immediately to the ministers house; 
we found nothing to eat, but lived upon our small provisions, 
and lay upon good straw. Our beds not being very easy as 
soon as it was day we got up. It rained hard, notwithstanding 
we walked about the town, which is palisaded with stakes 
stuck in the ground, and laid close the one to the other, and 
of substance to bear out a musket shot. There are but nine 
families, and they have nine houses built all in a line, and 
before every house, about twenty feet distant from it, they 
have small sheds built for their hogs and hens; so that hog styes 
and houses make a street. The place that is paled in, is a 
pentagon very regularly laid out, and in the very centre is a 
block house made with five sides which answer to the five sides 
of the great inclosure; there are loop holes through it, from 
which you may see all the inside of the inclosure. This was 
intended for a retreat for the people, in case they were not 
able to defend the palisades if attacked by the Indians. 
They make use of this block house for divine service. They 
go to prayers constantly once a day, and have two sermons 
on Sunday. We went to hear them perform their service, 
which was done in their own language, which we did not 
understand, but they seemed very devout, and sang the 
Psalms very well. This town or settlement lies upon the 
Rappahanock, thirty miles above the falls, and thirty miles 
from any inhabitants. The Germans live very miserably. 
We would tarry here some time, but for want of provisions 
we were obliged to go. We got from the minister a bit of 
smoked beef and cabbage, which was very ordinary. We 
made a collection between us three, of about thirty shillings, 
for the minister, and about twelve of the clock we took our 
leave, and set out to return." 

This description fits almost exactly what has heretofore been 
said. Why there were only nine houses, when there were 
thirteen families (including the pastor's) cannot now be 
explained. Perhaps some lived in the block house, or some of 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 27 

the houses sheltered more than one family; or perhaps Clay- 
ton's count was in error, for Col. Byrd of Westover, visiting 
Germanna in 1732, describes it thus: "The famous town of 
Germanna consists of Col. Spottswood's enchanted castle on 
one side and a bakers dozen (13) of ruinous tenements on the 
other, where so many German families had dwelt some years 
ago, but are now removed ten miles higher in the Forks of the 
Rappahanock to lands of their own." Thirteen houses would 
exactly shelter the twelve families of the colony, with the 
pastor's family added. 

Clayton's description is the earliest recorded description 
of a German Reformed congregation, and its services carried 
on in the United States; at Germanna was preached the first 
sermon to a German Reformed congregation in the United 
States; and it was preached by the ancestor of the Fishback 
family, Henry Hager, who was certainly the first German 
Reformed pastor in the United States. 

But Spottswood did not content himself with building 
habitations for his colonists. There was an established 
church in Virginia, and its ministers were entitled to tithes 
and could inflict all manner of exactions and annoyances upon 
these poor Germans who were not of their faith. And taxes 
had to be paid; and Spottswood did not want his protegees 
driven away before his iron project was developed. So he 
did the fair thing by the Germans, and a good thing for him- 
self, and procured the passage of the following act by the 
first General Assembly, after the arrival of the colony. So 
far as now known this is the first reference to Germanna and 
"Our Colony" in any public document.

No 2. Act to exempt certain German protestants from the 
payment of levies for seven years and for erecting the parish of 
St. George. A. D. 1714. 

"Whereas certain German protestants to the number of 
forty two persons or thereabouts, have been settled above the 
falls of the River Rappahanock, on the Southern branch of 
said river, called Rapidan, at a place named Germanna, in 
the County of Essex, and have there begun to build and 
make improvements, for their cohabitation, to the great 
advantage of this colony and the security of the frontiers in 
those parts from the intrusions of the Indians: for the en- 
couragement therefore of the said Germans in their infant 
settlement, be it enacted by the Lieutenant Governor council 
and burgesses of this present General Assembly, and it is 
hereby enacted by the authority of the same, that all and 
every of the Germans now seated at Germanna, shall be and 
are hereby declared to be free and discharged from the pay- 
ment of all and all manner of public or county levies or 
assessments whatsoever, for and during the term of seven 
years from and after the end of this session of assembly; and 
if any other German or other foreign protestants, shall within 
said term of seven years settle themselves at Germanna 
aforesaid such German or Germans or other foreign protestants 
shall be free and discharged from the payment of all such 
levies for the term of seven years from the time of their settling 
at Germanna respectively, provided such Germans or foreign- 
ers who now are or who within the said term of seven years 
shall be and continue for so long time to cohabit at Germanna. 
And if any of the said Germans or others shall depart from 
the said settlement at Germanna and inhabit any other part 
of this colony, such German and Germans and other foreign 
protestants leaving the said settlement, shall be assessed and 
pay all such levies and taxes as his Majesty's subjects of this 
dominion shall and do pay. 



HISTOEICAL SKETCH. 29 

" And be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid that 
the place called Germanna, together with a precinct of land 
thereunto next adjoining, extending five miles on each side 
of the said town or settlement of Germanna, is and shall be 
from henceforth a distinct parish of itself, and shall be called 
by the name of the Parish of St. George, and is and shall be 
divided and exempt from the Parish of St. Mary in said 
County of Essex and from all dependencies, offices, charges 
and contributions, for and in respect thereof, and from the 
cure of the minister of said Parish of St. Mary, and his 
successors, and also is and shall be discharged of all levies, 
oblations, obventions and all other parochial duties whatso- 
ever, relating to the said parish of St. Mary. 

" Provided always that the parisioners of St. George shall 
not be obliged to pay any minister or ministers of their said 
parish, the salary allowed by law to the ministers of other 
parishes of this colony, until such time as there shall be the 
number of 400 tithable persons in the said Parish of St. George; 
but the said parishioners are and shall be at liberty in the mean- 
time to agree with their minister and ministers to serve the 
cure of their said Parish upon such terms as by the Lieutenant 
Governor, or the Governor or commander in chief of this 
Dominion, for the time being with the advice of Council shall 
be thought reasonable, any law, statute or custom to the 
contrary thereof in any wise notwithstanding."* 

This was the German parish of St. George, not the English 
one. It was ignored and quietly wiped out of existence 
in the act of Nov. 20, 1720, organizing Spottsylvania county, 
and creating the English parish of St. George coterminous 
with the county.f 

The next reference to "Our Colony" comes from England. 
In the year 1701 there had been founded in London a mission-

ary society whose name was "The Society for the Propagation 
of the Gospel in Foreign Parts." It is still in vigorous exist- 
ence, and from its letter book it appears, that on October 2, 

1719, a petition sent by some one in Virginia was laid before 
the society asking it to assist these Germans; and it is clear 
that whoever penned the petition was hoping to turn these 
people to the Church of England. The letter from the Secre- 
tary of the Society to the writer says: "The letter book con- 
taining this petition is still in existence, although the original 
petition has been lost; no signatures appear to the petition in 
the letter book." The Secretary also says that the petition 
was referred to a committee, which reported March 20, 

1720, "that they had read the case of the German families in 
Virginia and agreed as their opinion, that Virginia not being 
under the immediate care of the society, they cannot properly 
send a missionary thither, but are of opinion that twenty-five 
copies of the common prayer in the German language be given 
them by the Society." Which report was agreed to. Can 
anyone guess what these members of the Reformed church 
did with these books of common prayer? The petition in full 
follows: 

"The case of thirty-two Protestant German families settled 
in Virginia, humbly sheweth: that twelve protestant German 
families, consisting of about fifty persons, arrived April 1714 
in Virginia, and were therein settled near the Rappahanck 
River. That in 1717, seventeen protestant German families, 
consisting of about four-score persons came and set down near 
their countrvmen, and manv more both German and Swiss 
families, are likely to come there and settle likewise. That 
for the enjoyment of the ministries of religion there will be the 
necessity of building a small church in the place of their 
settlement, and of maintaining a minister who shall catechise, 
read and perform divine offices among them in the German 
tongue, which is the only language they do yet understand. 
That there went indeed with the first twelve German families, 
one minister named Henry Haeger, a very sober, honest man,

of about 75 years of age, but he being likely to be past service 
in a short time, they have empowered Mr. Jacob Christopher 
Zollicoft'er of St. Gall Switzerland, to go into Europe, and 
there obtain, if possible, some contributions from pious and 
charitable Christians, towards the building of their church, 
and bringing over with him a young German minister, to 
assist the said Mr. Haeger in the ministry of religion, and to 
succeed him when he shall die; to get him ordained in England 
by the Rt. Rev. Lord Bishop of London; and to bring over 
with him the liturgy of the church of England, translated into 
High Dutch, which they are desirous to use in their public 
worship. But the new settlement consisting of but mean 
persons, being utterly unable of themselves to build a church 
and to make up a salary sufficient to maintain such assisting 
minister, they humbly implore the countenance and encourage- 
ment of the Lord Bishop of London, and others the Lords and 
Bishops, and also the venerable society for the propagation 
of the Gospel in foreign parts; that they would take their case 
under their pious consideration, and grant their usual allow- 
ance, for the support of a minister, and if it may be, to contri- 
bute something towards the building of their church. And 
they shall ever pray that God may reward their beneficence 
both here and hereafter."* 

By far the most important man in this colony was its pastor, 
John Henry Haeger. As so many people in the record are 
descended from him he is entitled to considerable notice. 
The Protestant church in Siegen, and all the Protestant 
churches in the neighborhood are German Reformed, not 

* This petition may be found in Bishop Parry's Historical Collections, 
Vol. I, page 247. Bishop Mead also gives it in his "Old Churches and 
Families of Virginia," Article 34, with a curious omission which has propa- 
gated a singular mistake. He makes the petition read "arrived April 17 
in Virginia," no year being given. This has since been quoted as stating 
that the colony arrived in Virginia on the 17th day of April. To make 
sure of this matter, the writer wrote again to the society, and the Secre- 
tary answered that the letter book reads: "Arrived April 1714 in Virginia." 
The day of arrival is not known.

Lutheran churches. Connected with the Siegen church, in 
the latter part of the seventeenth century, was a Latin school; 
and connected with this school, first as teacher and then as 
assistant principal from 1678 or earlier to 1703, was a man who 
was long the leader and teacher in this colony. This man was 
Rev. John Henry Haeger, born at Antzhausen, September 25, 
1644. He was the son of Henry Haeger, the school master at 
Antzhausen, a village about 5 miles due east of Siegen and one 
of the 27 villages of the parish of Netphen. Antzhausen was 
in the Catholic part of the county, and during some of the 
troubles between the two faiths, about 1652-4, Henry Haeger 
moved with his family to the northwest of Siegen into the 
Protestant part of the county. John Henry Haeger studied 
theology and on September 25, 1678, his thirty-fourth birth- 
da}', was appointed the third teacher in the Latin school at 
Siegen. Under date of December 3, 1678, the following ap- 
pears on the record of the Siegen School: "The worthy and 
learned Mr. Henry Haeger preceptor of the Latin school at 
this place, son of Henry Haeger of Antzhausen was married to 
Anna Catharine, daughter of Jacob Friesenhagen, late Mayor 
of Freudenburg." Freudenberg is about six miles a little 
northwest of Siegen. This union lasted more than fifty-four 
years, for the wife was living when Mr. Haeger made his will 
in April, 1733. He seems to have dropped the John from his 
name in later years, and was known as Henry; and we will 
Anglicize his name to Hager. 

Twelve children were born of this marriage; we are inter- 
ested in the third, John Frederick, born 1684, baptized the 
18th Sunday after Trinity (September 28), 1684.

Henry Hager became assistant rector at Siegen in 1689 and 
so continued till 1703, when the following entry appears on 
the church records: "On the 21st of January 1703 Rev. Mr. 
Schmidt was appointed as conrector in the place of Rev. Mr.

Hager, whom the most noble prince wished to transfer and 
promote to the pastorate of Oberfischbach." The map will 
show this village about three miles west of Siegen. 

Hager did not spend all his time in teaching: for in 1690 
he translated from French into German, at the request of 
Count William Morrice of Nassau-Siegen, a cousin of King 
William III of England, and published at Herborn, the "Story 
of Rev. Jacque Pineton de Chambrun," court preacher at 
Orange in France, of William III. Because of the revocation 
of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, and the consequent perse- 
cutions of the Protestants, de Chambrun was arrested and 
imprisoned, and with many other of his co-religionists suffered 
great hardships. He finally escaped and made his way to 
Holland, where he was protected by William of Orange, later 
King of England. He there wrote in French an account of 
the sufferings of himself and his fellow-Protestants, and it was 
this work that Henry Hager translated into German in 1690. 
A copy of it is still one of the cherished relics of the Latin school, 
now the Gymnasium at Siegen. The writer has a photograph 
of the title page. A reproduction of it appears on an adjoin- 
ing page. Hager seems to have pleased the prince by his 
work, and was later rewarded by a promotion to the 
pastorate at Oberfischbach. 

Here he remained for some time, but was ill for a while, 
and in consequence obtained permission for his son John 
Frederick, who had been licensed to preach in 1708, to assist 
him. In 1711 he was suffering from a rupture, and on Febru- 
ary 16, 1711, he handed in his resignation, and on April 13 
received an honorable dismissal. He lived in retirement at 
Oberfischbach until July, 1713.* 

Hager's fourth child, Elizabeth, married either in Germany 
or in England, it is as yet uncertain which, John Jacob Rector. 
He was an important man in the colony, and was one of the

elders of the congregation while the colony was at Germanna. 
He went to Germantown, but seems to have died soon after 
the colony went there, before 1729, for the Germantown land 
was set off to Elizabeth Rector, illegally of course. She had 
one son born at Maidstone in England and another born in 
this country. She seems to have soon married again, a man 
named Marr. Here was exactly the same situation as hap- 
pened in the Spilman-Gent family later referred to. But 
there was a tragedy in the Gent marriage, for the pleadings 
recite that "Gent has been runaway from this colonv for 
many years," leaving poor Mrs. Spilman with the entire care 
of her Spilman and Gent children. Mrs. Marr made some 
kind of a compromise with her Rector children, for she trans- 
ferred one hundred acres of the Germantown tract to her 
eldest Rector child, to whom it belonged under the law. 
Apparently Marr died comparatively soon, for the tradition 
is that in her later years Mrs. Marr married a prominent and 
wealthy citizen of Culpeper, Col. John Finlason, and that 
after the first Mrs. John Fishback died, she took her niece 
Elizabeth Fishback, then a baby (perhaps also the other 
daughter, Anna Catharine), and raised her. Quite possibly 
this had something to do with the early marriage of Elizabeth 
Fishback to John Peter Kemper, for the marriage took place 
when Elizabeth was 15 years 6 months and 24 days old; and 
also with the marriage of Anna Catharine Fishback to her 
cousin Mrs. Marr's son, John Rector. 

John Frederick Hager the third son of Henry Hager had 
applied to the English government to be sent to the New 
World, as pastor of some of the Palitinate colonies, which 
the English government was planting in America. England 
was attempting to make of these Germans, communicants in 
the church of England, and refused to send Hager as a Re- 
formed minister, so he was ordained in the Church of England 
December 20, 1709, and in 1710 went to Xew York as a Church 
of England minister. The colony and the proselyting were 
failures. The colonists left their lands and their new religion, 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 35 

after several years, and after many thrilling and unfortunate 
experiences finally drifted over into Pennsylvania, and Hager 
was later known as a Reformed minister. 

We do not know, but it is more than likely that the adven- 
tures of the son in America prompted the father, although 
then sixty-nine years of age, to think of America, and his 
neighbors, de Graffenried's Virginia colony of iron-workers, 
just at that time starting for America, gave him the oppor- 
tunity of going; at any rate he made application to "The 
Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts " 
in London to be sent to America as a missionary. Whether 
he made this application from Oberfischbach, or whether he 
was with the colony in London at the time, is uncertain, but 
on October 2, 1713, the following appears upon the minutes of 
the Society: "Reported from the committee that they had 
taken into consideration the petition of Mr. Hager father of 
the Societies missionary among the Palatines in the Province 
of New York, to them referred, and they agreed in their opinion 
that the case of said Mr. Hager does not properly lie before 
the Society." 

No doubt because the man was a German Reformed 
minister, and refused to be ordained in the church of England, 
and the colonists were members of the German Reformed 
church. So the old minister was compelled to go with his 
family to Virginia at his own expense. And go he did, with 
his wife, and in the colony went also his daughters Elizabeth, 
and Agnes and Anna Catharine; and in April, 1714, this little 
flock, with its minister, already old, numbering about thirty 
persons, was set down in the Virginia wilderness. 

Until lately there has been considerable uncertainty about 
the names of the families composing this colony, but a few 
years ago there was discovered in the back of a will book, 
among the records of Spottsylvania County, Virginia, a 
number of affidavits and court orders, which have set the- 
matter at rest.* In Virginia at this time, the law was that

any person who brought an immigrant into the colony was 
entitled to fifty acres of land. This law was liberally inter- 
preted, for land was plenty and colonists were wanted, and 
the fifty acres were allowed for infants and for the party 
himself. The record is as follows: 

Spottsylvania County, Will Book A, page 69. 

"At a Court held for Spottsylvania County on Tuesday 
the 7th day of April 1724, John Fishback in order to prove 
his right to take up land according to the royal charter, made 
oath that he came into this colony to dwell in the year 1714

the twelve families of the Germanna colony. The statement was made 
upon the authority of Rev. James Kemper, who wrote from recollection, 
and a hundred and twenty-five years after the event. The Utterback family 
was at Germantown in later years and theHandback and Waj'man families 
were in Culpeper, but they were not members of the Germanna colony; 
as the affidavits and court orders clearly show. These documents were dis- 
covered long after the Kemper genealogy was published.

HISTORICAL SKETCH. 37 

Singularly enough the orders to the surveyor to lay off 
these lands were not issued until May 30, 1729. Some of 
these orders, at least, were not issued in the name of the 
colonists; possibly they were assigned, and quite likely to 
Spottswood, for he really brought in these emigrants, and 
the patents will some day be found with the head rights all 
recited in them. Why these colonists who wanted land made 
no application for it, until ten years after they came to Vir- 
ginia, is as yet unexplained. The writer thinks, the applica- 
tions were made at the instigation of Spottswood, who really 
paid the passage of these emigrants, and that the orders were 
assigned to him. 

In this connection it will be noticed that no affidavit was 
made by Mr. Hager, although he and his wife were still living, 
and were just as much entitled to land as anyone else. Can 
it be that Spottswood did not dare ask the old minister for 
his affidavit? 

There are other affidavits, similar to the above in the 
Spottsylvania Will Book, but those here given are the only 
ones which say the signers came in April, 1714, so "Our 
Colony" was the first German colony to come to America. 

These affidavits mention twenty-nine persons as being in 
the colony, and Mr. Hager and his wife make thirty-one. 
De Graffenried says he found in London the " master miner 
and forty other miners." Spottswood's answers to his 
detractors say " at Germanna, there are about forty Germans, 
men women and children"; the act of 1715 says: "certain 
German protestants to the number of forty-two persons or 
thereabouts"; while the petition to the London Missionary 
Society says the colony of twelve families " consisted of about 
fifty persons"; yet here the names of every man, woman and 
child in the community is given and including Mr. Hager and 
his wife there are only thirty-one persons. There seems to 
be a mystery here, which has not yet been explained. The 
writer thinks that the colony was larger when it left Germany 
than when it reached Virginia, and that there was a con-

siderable defection of its members in England. The dis- 
appearance of the chief miner Albrecht has already been 
noticed. Holtzclaw and Coons each had two children, 
Weaver was unmarried, and Rector had one child, who was 
born at Maidstone; the other eight, all "brought their wives 
with them" according to the affidavits, but they had no 
children. They were evidently young married couples. 
Where did they get their wives? John Fishback and John 
Kemper were not married about Siegen. It is sure that eight 
unmarried young women did not start alone with this colony 
from Germany. Of course it is possible that these eight young 
men found wives among the Palatinate population then in 
England. But the writer is of the opinion that when the 
colony left Germany there were several families with it, with 
marriageable daughters, and perhaps other children, that the 
older people preferred, like Albrecht to remain in England 
rather than brave the dangers of the wilderness, but the 
daughters were persuaded to go with a wedding ring. Xo 
doubt de Graffenried stated in his letters to Spottswood, as he 
did in his autobiography, that there were forty people in the 
colony, and Spottswood in his documents without counting 
noses, referred to the colony as containing about forty persons, 
which was.quite likely the number when they left Siegen. True 
de Graffenried says there were "forty miners," and strictly this 
would mean forty men, but Spottswood always says " men, 
women and children," and it seems this was what de Graffen- 
ried intended. Until a better explanation is given the writer 
thinks this is the true explanation of this discrepancy. It 
only requires five other marriageable young women, for 
Fishback, Hoffman and Rector married daughters of Pastor 
Hager. It is now apparent how important it is to ascertain 
where these marriages took place, for the record would contain 
the maiden names of these women. Until these affidavits 
were found much time and money was spent in hunting the 
marriage records in Virginia, so loosely kept, and so many 
of them partially destroyed, but in vain. It was even thought 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 39 

that the brides might be found among the colonists of 1717 or 
later ones, but taking the affidavits as true the marriages must 
be sought on the other side. 

The iron furnace built by "Our Colony" for Spottswood, 
according to Col. Byrd, as described in his "A progress to the 
mines" in 1732 was "twelve measured miles east of Ger- 
manna." It was then being worked, not by "Our Colony," 
but by the later-coming Germans. The crumbling ruins of 
this furnace, built of rough stones, are still standing, and the 
dam, race way, tail race, the slag pile, etc., can still be traced. 

Many of the later-coming Germans were not so fortunate 
as "Our Colony," for in accordance with the laws of Virginia 
they were compelled to work for the person bringing them over 
for five years, to pay for their passage. This was not the case 
with "Our Colony" which always enjoyed the favor of Spotts- 
wood and the Colonial officials. When they first came they 
were relieved from all taxes for seven years. When the act was 
passed Nov. 20th, 1720, to take effect May 1, 1721,* organ- 
izing Spotsylvania County they were relieved from taxes for 
ten years, "provided they shall entertain a minister of their 
own"; and in 1730, an act was passed to "relieve certain 
German Protestants living in Stafford County from the pay- 
ment of Parish levies." "Our Colony" was living in that 
part of Stafford County in May, 1730, which was made 
Prince William County by an act to take effect March 25, 
1731, f so that "Our Colony" seems to have paid no taxes 
from their coming in April 1714 to beyond 1730. 

The later-coming German emigrants to Germanna were 
largely if not entirely Lutherans. They brought no minister 
with them. All the Germans tried to obtain contributions 
from Europe to build a church and school and they sent an 
agent to Europe in 1720, who put advertisements in the 
German papers, locating and describing Germanna, saying 
there were seventy-two German families there, of which 

* 4 Hen. 77. 
t 4 Hen. 303. 



40 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

twelve were Reformed, the others Lutheran, and that there 
was then with them an old minister 76 years of age (Hager 
was 76 in 1720) named Henry Hager, and asked for contri- 
butions to build a church and school for the colony, "which 
is served by the above named minister in common," and 
was located in the said Virginia, at a place called German- 
town, on the "Rapenhenek" (Rappahannock).* The Lu- 
therans later about 1724 went to Madison County and built 
Hebron church, which is still standing. 

It would therefore seem that "Our Colony" with Hager was 
still at Germanna in 1720; but they were growing restless. 
They wanted to own their own land and the Governor would 
not sell to them; perhaps the antagonism then existing between 
the Reformed and the Lutherans broke out, and "Our Colony" 
comprising only twelve of the seventy-two families, although 
the first to come, and the most important, was outvoted; at 
any rate it appears from the papers in the case of Spilman vs. 
Gent brought in 1759 and still on file in Fauquier County, 
that "Our Colony" had entered land, in what was then 
Stafford, later Prince William, now Fauquier County, in 1718. 
Perhaps some of them moved to it at that time, but Pastor 
Hager and surely some of the colony was still living at Ger- 
manna when the agent went to Europe, for he as pastor and 
John Jost. Merdten (Martin) and John Jacob Rechtor 
(Rector), "elders of the congregation," signed the agent's 
commission. But not later than the year 1721 the Germanna 
Colony moved to Germantown. 

John Fishback went with the colony from Germanna to 
Germantown. Every family mentioned in the court affidavits 
as coming to Virginia in 1714 went also, as did Henry Hager. 
It would appear as if John Fishback was one of the prominent 
men in the colony, or that he was one of the most successful. 
The laws of Virginia at that time were such that no alien 
could hold land. It cost some money to be naturalized, and 

* " Extraordinaire-Kaiserliche-Reichs Post-Zeitung " issue of June loth, 
1720, preserved at Frankfort-on-the-Main. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 41 

apparently the colonists did not want to spend the money to 
have all the men naturalized, so John Fishback, John Hoff- 
man and Jacob Holtzclaw were naturalized, and the grant 
from the Fairfax family, proprietors of the Northern Neck, 
that is, all the land between the Potomac and the Rappa- 
hannock, was made to these three, and they were to make leases 
to each of the other members of the colony, for such a lease 
was only considered a chattel interest, and there was no 
prohibition as to aliens holding chattels. These leases were 
all made. Later under more liberal naturalization laws, 
practically all the men in the colony became naturalized, for 
the poll book of an election for delegates to the house of 
burgesses, in Fauquier County in 1741, is still in existence, 
and the names of nearly all of them then living, appear on the 
poll book. 

The Germantown patent is an interesting document, and it 
is given in full.

The manner in which this land was entered, paid for and 
divided is described in the papers in the case of Spilman vs. 
Gent in Fauquier Co. This suit was filed October 27, 1759, 
and was one of the early suits in the new county of Fauquier. 
John Spilman had died before the Trustees had made the 
leases. He left young children, but the Trustees made the 
lease to the widow. She afterwards married a man named 
Gent, who at the time the suit was filed, "had been runaway 
from this colony for many years." Mary Gent was about 
to convey this land to her Gent children, and her eldest 
Spilman son brought a suit to restrain her from doing so, 
he claiming to be the owner of the land. The bill recites that 
"in 1718 Jacob Holtzclaw, John Hoffman, John Fishback, 
Peter Hitt, Harman Fishback, Tillman Weaver, John Spilman 
and several other Germans made an entry of a large tract of 
land known as Germantown in Fauquier county, that said 
Germans entered into an agreement with each other that 
they would be at equal expense in perfecting the title to the 
land and that said lands should be divided equally by lot 

*Recorded in Book A, Northern Neck Records, page 63, now at Rich- 
mond, Va. 



44 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

among us, who were Germans born beyond sea out of the 
allegiance of our sovereign Lord the King, that only Hoffman 
Fishback and Holtzclaw were naturalized, and it was agreed 
that the patent should be issued in the name of these three 
and that they should make leases for 99 years to each partner." 
This agreement was on record up to about 30 years ago, but 
it cannot now be found. It would show the signatures of all 
the members of the colony. The lease was also with the 
papers. It provided that Mary Gent should pay yearly at 
the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel one ear of Indian corn 
if demanded and pay yearly to the Lord of the fee, such rent 
and services as might become due. The other leases were no 
doubt in the same form. Not one of these leases can now be 
found on record. Mrs. Gent's answer said the several Ger- 
mans "had agreed to appropriate a certain quantity of land 
for the use of a minister, in doing which they took ten acres 
of John Spilman's 150 acre tract." While this case was 
pending the following deposition was taken: 

By virtue of a commission issuing out of the worshipful 
court of Fauquier dated the 29th day of October 1759, to us 
directed to take the depositions of Tillman Weaver, Harman 
Fishback and Peter Hitt: 

We have proceeded to take the depositions of Tillman 
Weaver, Harman Fishback and Peter Hitt, who being all of 
full age sworn on the Holy Evangelist of Almighty God deposeth 
and saith, That the land now in dispute between Jacob Spill- 
man PltfT., and Mary Gent, deft, is part of a tract of land 
taken up by a percell of Germans, about 31 years since, of 
which percell of Germans, Jacob Spillman father of the said 
plaintiff, was a party: and the said Germans not being all 
naturalized, it was agreed on by the general consent of the 
parties that the patent for the said tract of land should be 
granted by the proprietors agent to John Hoffman, John 
Fishback and Jacob Holtzclaw, who by agreement was to 
divide the said tract equally by lot among all the parties, con- 
cerned in taking up the same, and that the said trustee was 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 45 

by agreement to acknowledge to each man his part of the said 
tract, as fell to him by lot to his satisfaction; and these de- 
ponents further saith that John Spillman father to the said 
plaintiff, paid his full proportion, in taking up and dividing the 
said tract, and the land now in dispute between the said 
plaintiff and defendant fell to the lot of the said John Spill- 
man, father to the said plaintiff in the partition of the above 
said tract; and that John Spillman lived on and held the said 
lot as his property during his life; but dying before the said 
lot of land was acknowledged, the right of the same was passed 
to Mary Gent deft., who was then widow of the said John 
Spillman and mother to the plaintiff. And these deponents 
further saith, that there is one other lot of land of fifty acres 
or thereabouts now in dispute between the said pltff. and 
deft, being part of the said tract which fell by lot in the above 
said partition to the said John Spillman, the right of which 
was never passed to the said John Spillman or the present 
deft., Mary Gent, which said last mentioned lot the said 
defendant sold her rights of to Jacob Rector, and further these 
deponents saith not.

These documents say that the Germans entered the German- 
town land in 1718. It does not say they removed thither in 
1718. Some of them at least, together with Pastor Hager 
were still at Germanna in the spring or summer of 1720, for 
as has been mentioned advertisements asking aid for these 
people were inserted in the German papers in the summer of 

* This man was the father of John Marshall, the great Chief Justice of 
the United States. The Marshall family resided in Germantown at this 
time. There is an error in the deposition. It says the land "was taken 
up about 31 years since"; it should be 41. If the land was taken up 
in 1718, it was just 41 years before the deposition was taken. The bill 
states that the land "was taken up in 1718." 



46 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

that Year, which described the colonies of 1714 and 1717 as 
still at Germanna, and Pastor Hager was ministering to them. 
The only house now standing on the Germantown tract, and 
which is undoubtedly the original Weaver house, had carved 
on a board, until lately over the door, the date 1721. The 
writer is of the opinion that the removal took place in the fall 
of 1720 or early spring of 1721. They were to be farmers at 
Germantown, and they would wish to be on their new farms 
in time to put in their crops in the spring of 1721. 

The removal did not involve a change in location of more 
than twenty miles. The new village was called Germantown. 
It was at the time of the removal in Stafford county; after 
1730 in Prince William County; after 1759, and now, in 
Fauquier County. It was about nine miles southeast of 
Warrenton. It was in the tract known as the "Northern 
Neck," which included all the land lying between the Rappa- 
hannock and the Potomac, and had been granted by the crown, 
to the Fairfax family; it paid a rental to that family until the 
Revolution. 

The tract ran from northwest to southeast, was about one 
and a quarter miles wide from east to west, and two and a 
half miles long from north to south. Licking Run ran through 
it from northwest to southeast. It is just east of and about 
parallel with the branch railroad from Calverton to Warren- 
ton, and extended somewhat farther south than the present 
line of the Southern Railroad. This was the earliest settle- 
ment in all that region, and became a well-known place, and 
was celebrated for the thrift and good farming of its inhabi- 
tants. Chief Justice John Marshall was born at Germantown. 

We have seen that the colonists contributed equally to the 
cost of surveying and entering this land; it was divided into 
twelve equal tracts and the tracts were assigned by lot; each 
tract running entirely across the patent, with Licking Run 
running through each man's land. This gave each man a 
tract of land G3.5 poles or 1,047.75 feet from north to south, 
and running entirely across the patent, 378 poles, or 6,237

feet from east to west, and made a farm of just about 150 
acres; for which each man would pay an annual rental of three 
shillings to the proprietors. 

Owing to the destruction of the early records of Prince 
William County, during the civil war, it is not possible to fix 
the location of each of these tracts with certainty, but after 
a careful examination and comparison of deeds and wills relating 
to the tract, still remaining on record, mostly in Fauquier 
county, the recital of which would take far too much space; 
the writer is quite certain that the ownership of this tract was 
as appears on the diagram below. There is no doubt about 
the location of the shares of Hoffman, Spilman, John Fish- 
back, Brumback, Rector and Coons; there is little doubt 
about the Weaver, Harman Fishback and Hitt tracts; there 
is much doubt about the order of the Kemper, Martin and 
Holtzclaw tracts. The Kemper tract is placed next below 
Hoffman, because the extant deeds, for this tract, giving the 
distances, from the west line to the Run, accord better with 
that location than lower down. Whether Martin or Holtz- 
claw had the southernmost tract, is at this time wholly uncer- 
tain. 

The writer thinks there can be no doubt that when the 
colony came to Germantown, John Fishback's house was 
built on the tract marked with his name on the diagram. 
Just how long he lived there, cannot now be told. It will 
later be seen that he was not living there, at the time of his 
death. He apparently gave his home place on this tract to 
his daughter Elizabeth, who afterward married John Peter 
Kemper. 

It would be interesting to locate Hager's house on this 
tract, and the church in which the colonists worshiped; for 
they did have a church in which they carried on their services, 
as long as Hager lived and even afterwards. The writer is 
of opinion that it was on the west end of the Spilman tract. 
The following are the reasons for this statement. Spilman 
died before his land was leased to him by the Trustees, and 
5 



48 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

his widow married a man named Gent. In the suit of Spil- 
man vs. Gent, above referred to, the pleadings and deposi- 
tions of which are still preserved, it appears that after 
Spilman's death, the trustees took (by what right cannot be 
guessed) ten acres of his land for the support of the minister. 
The ten acres were in the middle of the tract east and west, 
for the taking made forty acres (to the west) so badly located 
that the widow sold her rights in it, for a beef, to Jacob Rector. 
Now Jacob Rector married, in Europe, Hager's daughter 
Elizabeth. John Fishback, whose first wife was Agnes Hager 
by his will, gave to his daughter, Catharine Rector (who 
married John, the eldest son of the emigrant Jacob Rector) 
" 50 acres where Henry Hager doth now live " and the will recites 
that this land ran along John Hoffman's land. John Hoffman 
married Hager's daughter Anna Catharine. We know from 
other sources that John Fishback's land adjoined the Gent- 
Spilman tract. So we see this little family party located 
together on the Germantown tract. John Eishback and 
John Hoffman were two of the trustees, and (shrewdly) on 
Spilman's death, with his tract unleased to him, put Henry 
Hager on ten acres of this tract, and then as they could not 
buy from themselves sent the other son-in-law Jacob Rector 
to the widow Spilman, to buy the forty acres west of the ten 
acres, which he did for a beef and then deeded it to John Fish- 
back, for John Fishback owned it at his death and gave it 
by his will to his daughter Catharine Rector. No doubt the 
church was close to Hager's house, for they would not ask the 
old man to go any farther than necessary to his church. 
Is it possible he could have been buried in the yard of this 
church'.'' 

This man Henry Hager who was too ill to preach longer at 
Oberfischbach in 1711, because he was suffering from a 
rupture; who had left a comfortable home in Germany to 
come to the wilds of America in 1713 when he was in his 
sixty-ninth year; who was considered old in 1720, seems to 
have lived until the spring of 1737; he made his will in 1733,

and it was probated in 1737. He was the ancestor of many 
people in the colony, and his will is given in full.

my estate, goods and chattels whatsoever, to her during her 
natural life.

Anna Catharine Friesenhagen. She was living at the time 
the will was made, so the marriage surely lasted more than 
55 years: we do not know when she died, but if she lived as 
long as her husband, the marriage lasted more than 58 years. 
Mr. Hager lived to be 93 years and six months old. Singularly 
none of his family is mentioned in his will except his wife 
and his Fishback and Hoffman grandchildren. His daughters 
Mrs. Fishback and Mrs. Hoffman were dead by this time. 
It might be that he thought there was no use mentioning the 
children or their descendants who were living in far distant 
Europe or New York, but Mrs. Rector was living in the 
colony and had at least two Rector children. Rector was 
dead but she had married a man named Marr and was still 
living at or near Germantown. 

The inventory of Mr. Hager's estate has been preserved, 
and as it may be of interest to know of what the furniture of a 
minister's house in Virginia consisted in those days, and 
-what its value was, it is given in full, as nearly verbatim et 
literatim as can now be made out from the record book.

At a court held for Prince William County May 23, 1737, 
John Rector presented this inventory and appraisement which 
were ordered to be recorded. 

Teste Catesby Cocke Clerk. 

There is an error in addition. The total should be 51 £ 
16s. 6^ d. This is a very fair amount of household property 
for those times, in a frontier county of Virginia, and the 
nearly twelve pounds in cash shows the family was by no 
means in want. What would some lover of the antique of 
the present day, think of "3 ould spinnen wheels at 10 shil- 
lings," about eighty cents each: and what descendant of Henry 
Hager would not love to have that old family Bible, which 
in its then condition was worth a pound and five shillings. 
Where today is this relic of the past? 

John Fishback was plainly a man of energy and thrift. 
He soon began to acquire lands outside of the patent. Before 
his death he had obtained a grant of 1,028 acres of land in 
one tract in Upper Fauquier near where "The Plains" is 
now located. On September 28, 1730 he received a grant for 
400 acres in Culpeper County, near where the village of 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 53 

Jeffersonton now stands. He also received a grant for a tract 
of 280 acres in the western part of the present Fauquier 
County on the north side of the Rappahannock, about four 
miles above Great Run, on 27 February, 1728/9, Book B, 
page 189; it looks as if he did not own this tract at his death 
for it is not mentioned in his will. He was not living on the 
patent land at his death. His brother-in-law, John Hoffman, 
had also left the patent and had gone over into Culpeper to 
live. It will be noticed that by his will John Fishback gave 
his plantation, "lying on the south side of Licking Run 
running towards the mapp" to his wife for life, and after her 
death to his son John Frederick. Every effort has been 
made to locate this tract, but without success. John Fish- 
back's widow must have died before 1759, and John Frederick 
must have sold it before that date, for Fauquier was set off 
from Prince William in that year, and there is no deed in 
Fauquier for such a tract; the conveyance must have been 
recorded in Prince William and has been destroyed. The 
writer thinks the grant on the Rappahannock could not be the 
place, for the home plantation is described by a reference to 
Licking Run; and "running towards the mapp" certainly 
means the Germantown tract, for a tract away over on the 
Rappahannock would surely not be described as "running 
towards the mapp." 

The writer thinks if this "plantation" could be identified, 
the grave of our immigrant ancestor might be found upon it; 
perhaps also the grave of his first wife Agnes Hager, and 
almost certainly the grave of his second wife. In those days 
when public cemeteries were not in use, nearly every family 
had a grave-yard on their own farm, where all the members of. 
the family were buried, and more than likely it was true in 
this instance. This was the case on John Frederick Fish- 
back's farm near Jeffersonton. Marble grave-stones could 
only be had by the wealthy, in Virginia at the time John 
Fishback died, and quite likely the graves of himself and 
wives were only marked by rough pieces of granite or sand-

stone, with no names upon them, as happened at Jeffersonton 
for fifty years after; but ., with the location of the plantation 
unknown, it is impossible to find the graves, in whatever way 
thev were marked. 

John Fishback's first wife, Agnes Hager, died soon after 
the colony came to Virginia. The exact date is unknown. 
The date of birth of only one of John Fishback's children is 
positively known; Elizabeth who married John Peter Kemper. 
She was born at Germantown, February 13, 1723. As this 
couple were married in Europe, had no children when they 
came, but had four born to them after they came to America, 
the writer thinks that Agnes Hager died at or shortly after 
the birth of her daughter Elizabeth. She left her husband 
with four small children to care for, the oldest of whom could 
not have been over ten years of age, and the youngest a baby. 
Under these conditions he would not remain longer unmarried 
than he could help, and he did not, for he died in 1733, and had 
four children by this second marriage. It must be stated 
however, that apparently he was not remarried in August, 
1729. On that date, the Trustees under the patent made the 
lease to Mrs. Spilman, and while dower is released in the 
Spilman tract by Mrs. Holtzclaw, no dower is released by a 
wife of John Fishback or John Hoffman. If they took the 
trouble to have Mrs. Holtzclaw release her dower, they 
surely would have Mrs. Fishback release her dower had there 
been such a person. This would argue a set of twins in the 
second set of children, or that one child was born a good 
while after the father's death. His second wife survived him; 
her full name is given in the will but it is impossible to make 
out the name, no two persons reading it alike; the writer 
thinks it is Mary Daughertv. No such familv is now known 
in the neighborhood. If Agnes Hager died while John 
Fishback was still living in Germantown, perhaps she was 
buried near the church. Her sister, Mrs. Hoffman, died 
about the same time, and perhaps w r hen old Mr. Hager and 
his wife died they also were interred near the church. But 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 55 

no one knows, to this day, the sepulcher of this leader of his 
people. 

John Fishback made his will March 11, 1733, and it was 
probated March 19, 1733. His children were all young, so he 
made his friend John Kemper and his brother Harman Fish- 
back his executors. The will follows in full, and the spelling 
is given as nearly as it can be made out from the Will Book 
in Prince William County. The reader is reminded that the 
record is very badly faded, after more than 175 years, and it is 
almost impossible to decipher it. 

John Fishback's Will.

HISTORICAL SKETCH. 57 

There is a deed in the Fauquier records, Book 5, page 240, 
dated November 23, 1772, from Jacob Rector and Mary his 
wife to Henry Utterback in consideration of 52 pounds, for 
one hundred acres in Fauquier County on Licking Run, 
being part of the land taken up by John Fishback, John 
Hoffman and Jacob Holtzclaw, for the Germans "this piece 
was devised by John Fishback unto his daughter Elizabeth 
which intermarried with Peter Kemper, who conveyed the 
said land to Jacob Rector." This deed to Jacob Rector, from 
Peter Kemper and Elizabeth Fishback his wife is not on 
record in Fauquier, it must have been made prior to 1759, 
and was on record in Prince William Co. The large con- 
sideration of 52 pounds, so much larger than any other 100 
acres in the tract that the writer has been able to find, about 
that time, confirms him in the opinion that the consideration 
was so large because John Fishback's original home was on 
this tract. 

Henry Fishback must have died young. We never hear of 
him after the probate of the will. Under the English law of 
primogeniture and exclusion of the half blood the land left to 
him in his father's will went to his full brother John Frederick, 
to the exclusion of his half brothers, and to the exclusion of 
the sisters. In consequence John Frederick became the 
owner of Henry's land in Culpeper, as well as his Germantown 
tract. The latter as well as the home plantation John Freder- 
ick must have sold before 1759 for there is no deed for it in 
Fauquier; and he then moved to the Culpeper plantation, 
buying other land near it, and obtaining a new grant for it 
from the crown on June 4, 1748, for 790 acres, which grant 
recites that the land was formerly granted on Sept. 28, 1730, 
to his father John Fishback and that Frederick Fishback was 
at the date of the grant of Orange County. Culpeper was 
then part of Orange County. Until recently much of this 
land was owned by his descendants. The house in which 
John Frederick was living at his death in 1785 still stands 
now part of a larger house; and near it in the little family 



58 THE FISIIBACK FAMILY. 

graveyard sleep John Frederick, his wives and many of their 
descendants. The chances are this house was built as early 
as 1748. A picture of it appears on a neighboring page. 

Harmon Fishback, one of the children by the second wife, 
must also have died young, for he is never heard of after the 
will, and under the English laws above referred to, the 1,028 
acres in Upper Fauquier given in the will of John Fishback to 
his four children by the second marriage, came into the joint 
ownership of John Jacob, John Philip, and Josiah, and they 
divided it among themselves, by a partition agreement, still 
on record; and a large part of this tract is still owned by a 
descendant of Josiah today. 

Germantown in later years became a large and prosperous 
settlement, and was known far and wide. After Hager's 
death, they seem to have always been without a pastor, al- 
though they were always trying to obtain one; yet they kept 
up their services in their church, and set apart one hundred 
acres of land for a Glebe. The proof of this statement is to 
be found in a deed in Fauquier in Book 4, page 175, wherein 
Peter Hitt, Jacob Weaver and Peter Kemper on April 22, 
1771, convey to Harmon Fishback "all their right title and 
interest to one lot of land containing by estimation one 
hundred acres whereon Thomas Marshall now lives, in said 
county of Fauquier and binding on the lands of Charles Carter 
of Lancaster and Jeremiah Darnall of Fauquier, being one of 
the lots of land in the German Town, formerly set apart for a 
German Glebe." Peter Hitt is the emigrant ; whether Harmon 
Fishback is the emigrant or his son cannot be told. Peter 
Kemper is the John Peter Kemper who married Elizabeth 
Fishback; she had been dead since 1768. It is impossible 
from the description in this deed to locate the Glebe. Accord- 
ing to the stone placed to mark the birthplace of John Mar- 
shall, it was far towards the south end of the Germantown 
tract. It will be remembered that Carter bounded the 
Germantown tract on the east. The writer thinks that 
Jeremiah Darnall owned land just to the south of the German-

town tract. If this is correct, the Glebe was in the southeast 
corner of the tract. The puzzling thing is, why did these three 
men deed this Glebe land? Had the church organization 
been kept up till 1771 and were these three men its trustees? 
Or had this land been set apart by the entire colony as a Glebe, 
and these three men by this deed were selling their three 
twelfths interest in it. The writer thinks the former, because 
no other deed of a similar character can be found from the 
other members of the colony. 

Holtzclaw read the service during these later years; he 
lived to be a very old man. His will is probated in 1760. The 
settlement was visited a number of times between 1741 and 
1748 by the Moravian ministers, from Bethlehem, Pennsyl- 
vania, who made missionary journeys all over that part of 
the country. These missionaries always preached in the 
church. Their diaries, recently discovered, tell of their visits. 
They mention Hoffman and Holtzclaw by name. The colony 
is referred to as a colony of "Reformed miners from Nassau- 
Siegen," "Twelve Reformed Families from Nassau-Siegen," 
"Twelve families from the Siegen district," and is always 
called Germantown on Licking Run. 

The diaries contain the statement that the colony had a 
church and a glebe of one hundred acres; and this glebe was 
offered at once to one missionary after another, if he would re- 
main as pastor. On one rainy day one hundred persons at- 
tended a service in the church. For a while a missionary came 
from Bethlehem to Germantown twice a year to administer 
communion, but he returned to Europe and for many years 
they had no one to preach for them.* 

It is a curious and interesting study, to show the gradual 
loss of its German language and feeling by the members of 

* These Moravian Diaries were discovered a few years ago, in the 
Moravian Monastery at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, by Rev. W. H. Hinke. 
They are in German. Mr. Hinke translated them and published them, 
in his article above referred to in "The Journal of the Presbyterian His- 
torical Society," Vol. II, Nos. 1, 2 and 3. Philadelphia. 



60 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

this colony. The family record of John Peter Kemper, 
commenced in 1738, starts out, as his father's did, with a verse 
of poetry, written in German, calling down the blessings of 
the Almighty on the married life just beginning. This is an 
old German custom. The entries of the births of all the 
children follow, and they and the death of his wife Elizabeth 
Fishback are all written in German but after that time the 
entries are in English, but the turn of the phrases betrays the 
German origin of the writer. The writer of this sketch has 
seen the German Bible of another member of this colonv, 
where the early entries are in German. 

But the new county of Fauquier was set off from Prince 
William in 1759, showing that the lands about Germantown 
were fast filling up with settlers, which of course were English, 
and Germantown was soon swallowed up in this flood of 
English immigration. The business and court transactions 
of the colony were all transacted in English. By the time the 
third generation was ready to come on the stage they did not 
want to be known as Germans, they did not want their settle- 
ment called Germantown (or "Dutchtown" in derision, as 
"we English" are still prone to do) and they got away from 
their German language and customs as fast as they could, 
just as the little children of German families on our streets 
today cannot be forced to speak German. All this appears 
in many ways, and in none more surprising than in the many 
marriages contracted by the members of the third generation 
of all of these families with their English neighbors. Mark 
them: Amiss, Armitage, Ball, Beverly, Hathaway, Morgan, 
Rogers and many others. This is in notable contrast to the 
second generation, where the marriages were almost entirely 
within the colony. This very fact shows the estimation in 
which these sturdy, thrifty Germans were held by their 
English neighbors. John Marshall's company in the Revolu- 
tionary War, which later became part of one of the Virginia 
regiments was largely recruited from members of the Ger- 
mantown colony, and a large number of the young men of 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 61 

the third generation, were in every campaign till the end of 
the war. If they could stand shoulder to shoulder with their 
English neighbors on the battlefield in defense of their homes, 
there was no reason why they should not marry their sisters 
and daughters. 

We hear little of Germantown or its German settlers after 
the close of the Revolution. The sons of the colony went 
forth to people the great west, along with their English 
friends, and we have long ceased to expect to find a Kuntz 
or a Weber, in a Coons or a Weaver, or to dream that they 
came to Virginia, in the first organized German colony that 
came to America. The descendants of these colonists are to 
be found all over the west and south, and with the death of 
the older people, Germantown was at an end. During the 
Civil War it was close to the Bull Run battlefields, and was 
always in the track of the armies. Now, there is no village 
of Germantown to be found. You can only hear the hills to 
the north called, "the Germantown Hills," and there is an 
occasional reference to, "the Germantown neighborhood." 
Midland, a station on the southern railroad is thought to be 
located upon the Germantown tract. There is now only 
one house standing on the entire tract, it belongs to the 
Weaver family, and most of the land belongs to them. They 
tell of foundations of old houses being still occasionally plowed 
up in the fields. 

Mr. Hager was the link which tied nearly all the families 
of this colony together in the bonds of relationship. Hager's 
daughter Elizabeth had married in Europe John Jacob Rector; 
and their eldest son John married his cousin Anna Catharine 
Fishback, the older daughter of John Fishback. Agnes Hager 
married John Fishback, and Anna Catharine Hager married 
John Hoffman; John Frederick Fishback married first a 
Holtzclaw and then a Martin, and Elizabeth Fishback married 
John Peter Kemper. Descendants of some of these persons 
repeatedly intermarried with every family of the colony 
except the Brumback family. This man must have died 



62 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

early and seems to have left no male descendants. The name 
never appears among any of the records, and does not now 
appear anywhere in the neighborhood. The second Mrs. 
John Hoffman lived until 1820 or later; she related to Rev. 
James Kemper many incidents about the early years of the 
colony, and the relationships of the various families, which 
he incorporated in his memoirs, called by him "Life's Review," 
written in Cincinnati towards the close of his life, about 1830. 

To show how the story of "Our Colony" had been kept 
alive for three generations, his description of the coming to 
America, and the settlement at Germanna and later at Ger- 
mantown is given in full. 

"My grandfather John Kemper was born in the county of 
Nassau Siegen (Germany) on the river Sieg, but how near the 
town of Siegen I have no documents to show. He owned a 
small landed property there, was a man of some learning, 
serious piety, and a penetrating mind, with a most amiable 
disposition and temper. In his reflections on the severity of 
the Government of his country, and the vast difference between 
that, and the liberties enjoyed in America, he finally resolved 
to embark for the New World, and did so with a company of 
about twelve families, who were perhaps all related by con- 
sanguinity or affinity. They touched on England, and made 
a short stay there, just at the time when Queen Anne died and 
George the First ascended the throne of England, and about 
107 years after the first settlement of Virginia, about the year 
1714. From thence they sailed to Virginia, I think at the time 
Governor Spottswood administered the government of the 
State. 

"Bv the Governor's advice or recommendation they made 
a temporary settlement, in what is now I think Orange 
County, and named the place Germanna. But they were on 
lands belonging to the Governor, or under his control, and 
within about two years they saw or believed that the Governor 
was disposed to impose on them, and they determined on 
removing to Prince William County out of which Fauquier 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 63 

County was afterwards taken. They did so and purchased or 
perhaps entered, vacant land, each 200 acres on a small 
stream called Licking Run, and called the place Germantown; 
and so it is called to this day. I have seen in Orange County, 
the remains of hewn stone, which some of them had cut for 
the Governor. They were mostly mechanics and master 
workmen in their several trades. Germantown lies about 8 
miles below Warrenton the present county town of Fauquier 
County. Each man's land was surveyed in an oblong square, 
the run or creek passing through the middle of each tract. 
They had now obtained the height of their ambition or they 
might nearly as well have owned 2000 acres each as 200. . . . 
The first year at Germantown they packed all their provisions 
from Fredericksburg on their heads, and raised their first 
crop with their hoes, in both which their women bore a part. 
My grandfather invented the first shovel plow, and in a few 
years they had large stocks of tame and very large cattle. 
I recollect well when my father had many horses nearly or 
quite wild in the woods about the year 1760. 

"Holtzclaw was their schoolmaster and a good scholar. 
Their minister in Germany, who though he did not come with 
them soon followed; his name was Haeger, and he was my 
great grandfather by my mother, and a man of profound 
learning, but he was old, and died soon. They were Presby- 
terians and soon raised a house for public worship in which 
after the death of their minister, they constantly held worship, 
by reading the scriptures, singing psalms, prayer, and reading 
sermons. They were well provided with books. . . . They 
kept up their worship both public and private, in the German 
language, and their schools also, till being as it were, lost in 
the crowd, the first generation removed by death, and all 
their public political matters transacted in English, their 
language was gradually lost in the second generation. I spoke 
a dialect of the German language, as used in my father's 
house, fluently, till I was ten or twelve years old but have now 
almost entirelv lost it." 



G4 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

It will possibly be interesting to give the personal appearance 
of the Fishback family. It seems to have been typically 
German. Here is the pen portrait Rev. James Kemper in 
"Life's Review" gives of his mother Elizabeth Fishback, the 
younger daughter of the emigrant. 

" My mother was Elizabeth Fishback the daughter of John 
Fishback, who was one of the original emigrants from Nassau 
Siegen. She was born on the 13th day of February 1723 at 
Germantown and was married to my father the 7th day of 
September 1738 under 16 years of age. She was rather below 
the middle stature, and of a fair complection. The features 
of her face were good, an innocent eye, fair or light yellow hair, 
a fine suit of it, and the law of kindness was on her tongue. 
I recollect her well. The wife the mother friend and neighbor, 
shown to the best advantage in her, while she lived. She was 
remote from whatever was or had the appearance of parade or 
affectation, and equally remote from neglect or inattention 
where the contrary was required or necessary. To sum up 
her character in a word, she was the accomplished wife, not 
indeed in the eyes of the World, but in the view of all genuine 
goodness and worth .... She died the 21st day of Febru- 
ary, 1768." 

John Fishback's family ought to be called the Governor's 
family. As has been told, Jacob Rector's son, John, married 
his cousin, Anna Catharine Fishback, and to them were born 
seven sons and two daughters. Two of the descendants of 
one of these daughters, James S. Conway, and Elias N. 
Conway became respectively the first and fifth governors of 
Arkansas; Henry M. Rector, a descendant of one of these 
sons, was governor of Arkansas in 1860. Wm. M. Fishback, 
a descendant of John Frederick Fishback, was governor of 
Arkansas, 1893-5. Besides this, James L. Kemper, a descend- 
ant of Elizabeth Fishback, was from 1874 to 1878 governor 
of the Old Dominion; making five governors of their States 
descended from this sturdy German emigrant of 1714, John 
Fishback. The portraits of these five Governors appear on 
an adjoining page.

HISTORICAL SKETCH. 65 

It has been seen that there was also a Harman Fishback 
in the Germanna Colony, and that he also owned one of the 
tracts at Germantown. It has always been supposed that 
John and Harman were brothers, but there is no positive 
testimony on the subject. Quite likely Harman Fishback's 
record could be obtained from the records of the Siegen 
church. Very carelessly the writer neglected to get it while 
he was in Siegen. The marriage contract mentioned here- 
after, is on record in Prince William in 1745 between a Harman 
Fishback and Mary Neas. The chances are this is our man; 
and it looks as if his first wife had died by that time and he 
was marrying a second time. The Harman Fishback, Sr., 
of Culpeper and Harman Fishback his son who were making 
deeds for part of the Germantown Tract as late as 1775, are 
supposed to be the emigrant Harman and his son, but there is 
nothing to identify them. The writer has about two hundred 
and fifty names all descended from a Harman Fishback, who 
went from Culpeper to Madison County about 1800. These 
were largely gathered together through the diligence of one 
of them, Mr. Reuben D. Fishback, of Cincinnati; but they 
have not been published herein, because of the uncertainty 
of the line of descent, and because it has so far been im- 
possible to certainly run them back to Harman the emigrant. 
The trouble is that there was a Jacob Fishback in the colony 
in 1733 when John Fishback's will was made, who was a 
cousin of John, whose subsequent history, and what became 
of his descendants if any he had, is wholly unknown. About 
1800 there was a prominent and numerous Fishback family 
living in Wythe Co., Virginia. They have now all disappeared 
from there, but one family descended from them is living in 
Illinois. They can tell nothing about their family prior to 
1800. The writer feels confident that the Wythe County and 
the Madison County families are related to us, in some way; 
but it is wholly uncertain how. 

The members of this colony soon felt the effects of the hard- 
ships incurred by all settlers in a new country. John Spilman 



66 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

seems to have been the first to depart this life. He died " before 
the land (at Germantown) was aparted to him" says the record 
in Spilman vs. Gent, that is, before they actually settled upon 
the land. His widow was left with a number of very small 
children, and she soon sought the support and protection of 
another husband, and found one in the person of George Gent, 
the first instance apparently of any member of the colony 
marrying outside of it, but George soon ran away from the 
colony (there may be an unwritten romance here), leaving 
her with several more children. And she had a hard struggle 
with them all. There is a curious thing. The oldest stone 
in the Fishback graveyard at Jeffersonton (a marble stone 
by the way) is that of a John Spilman who died February 25, 
1815, aged 75 years. And a more curious thing is that the 
stone does not tell and no one now living knows, who this 
man was, or why he was buried in a Fishback graveyard. 
As Jeffersonton is only about 12 miles from Germantown and 
as Elizabeth, the daughter of John Frederick Fishback, had 
married Charles Spilman of Germantown, it would seem 
that the man under this sod was a descendant of the German 
emigrant above mentioned, but there was a Spilman family 
at Jamestown in the very early days of the colony who were 
almost certainly English people, and we can't be sure. 

John Jacob Rector died between 1724 and 1729. The 
Germantown lease was made to his widow in the latter year. 
It will be remembered that she was a daughter of Parson 
Hager. Apparently she only had two sons; the elder married 
his cousin, Anna Catharine Fishback. The seven sons of 
this marriage seem to have all emigrated to Kaskaskia in very 
early days. Mrs. Rector was married often enough to have 
had several romances in her histor}-. It is almost certain 
that after the death of her sister Agnes Hager Fishback, she 
cared for her little children at least until John Fishback could 
take unto himself another wife. It did not take him long; 
he must have had fetching ways about him, for he had four 
little children, but he was only about 34 years of age, and no 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 67 

doubt had a good farm and a comfortable home, and if the 
writer is right in deciphering the name of the woman in the 
will mentioned as his wife, she belonged in an English family. 
The writer thinks it clear that Agnes Hager Pishback died at 
the birth of her younger daughter Elizabeth in February, 
1723. The sister of Agnes, Anna Catharine, who married 
John Hoffman, died about this same time. 

Jacob Holtzclaw's will is probated in Fauquier February 29, 
1760. He was a good scholar, the schoolmaster of the little 
flock and the reader in the little church and their spiritual 
leader after Mr. Hager's death. The Moravian missionaries 
always stayed at his house, or went first to see him as they 
passed through. He left ten children and has had a great 
many descendants. His children married into the Hitt and 
Fishback family. In the next generation, four Holtzclaws 
married four Kempers. 

John Kemper died before 1759, for no will or administrator 
of his can be found in Fauquier, set off from Prince William 
in that year. He left ten children all of whom grew up. 
His eldest son married John Fishback's youngest daughter. 
John Kemper has had nearly 6,000 descendants to this date. 

It is impossible to tell how much labor and research has 
been spent on looking up the history of the members of this 
colony. The records of Fauquier County at Warrenton and 
of Culpeper County at Culpeper are all preserved, finely 
indexed and came through the war safely, those at Warrenton 
having been hidden away during the struggle. But the records 
of Prince William County, which went back to 1730 and are 
now at Manassas, with the exception of some half dozen 
books containing wills and deeds and not in succession, as 
well as most of the records of Stafford County, are entirely 
destroyed or were carried off. Germantown was in Prince 
William from 1730 to 1759, and many of the records relating 
to the colony are gone forever. This is what has made it. 
so difficult to write the history of the colony. We were indeed 
fortunate in having preserved for us the wills of John Fishback, 
and Pastor Hager. 



68 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

As a sample of the way some things were preserved during 
the Civil War perhaps the following incident will be inter- 
esting. Mr. Theo. Kemper, of Cincinnati, attended the 
University of Virginia, from which institution he was gradu- 
ated in 1859. The journey between Charlottesville and 
Cincinnati was long, difficult and expensive at that time, and 
he did not return to Cincinnati during his four years' course, 
but spent his vacations with his many relatives about Warren- 
ton, generally with his great-uncle Charles Kemper, who 
lived at "Cedar Grove," about two and a half miles southwest 
of Warrenton, in which village he made many acquaintances. 
Mr. Theo. Kemper returned to Cincinnati and was admitted 
to the bar in that city. There now hangs over the judge's 
seat in the handsome court room at Warrenton, a splendid 
life-size painting considered one of the best in existence, of 
John Marshall, the great chief justice of the United States. 
It is in a very heavy gilt frame. It was painted, framed and 
hung in the court-house many years before the war at the 
expense of the county and was regarded with the greatest 
veneration. When the war began and the armies began to go 
back and forth and battles were fought all round, and violence 
was rampant, the prominent people of Warrenton became 
; fearful that the painting would be destroyed or stolen. The 
county was not deemed a safe place for it so it was cut from 
its frame, rolled and enclosed in a tin case, and at the insti- 
gation of Mr. Charles Kemper sent to Mr. Theo. Kemper 
in Cincinnati, and stood in a fireproof vault in his office during 
all the long years of the war. At its close Mr. Theo. Kemper 
returned the painting to its friends in Warrenton, and it now 
hangs again in its frame and place in the court room, the pride 
of the county. Blood is thicker than water, and friendship 
and honor will often outlast the bloodiest war. 

But we have kept the Germantown colonists "a long time a 
dying." Tillman Weaver's will was probated in Fauquier 
March 27, 1760. He left nine children. They married Hitts 
and Kempers. He has left many descendants, in Kentucky 
and elsewhere. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 69 

Peter Hitt's will was probated in Fauquier in 1771. He 
left five children. They married Rectors, Coons and Kempers. 
Their name is legion in Virginia and all over the south and 
west. The late Hon. R. R. Hitt, an able and accomplished 
member of congress from Illinois and for many years the 
efficient chairman of the foreign relations committee of the 
house, was a descendant of this man. 

John Hoffman seceded from the Germantown colony at an 
early date; the reason cannot now be told, but he had a 
brother in the Moravian monastery at Bethlehem, Pa. Per- 
haps there were religious troubles of some kind. But he with 
other Germans started another Reformed Church, just over 
the river in Culpeper County, and it was quite a rival of the 
Germantown church. It has wholly disappeared, and its 
location cannot now be determined. Hoffman had three 
children by Anna Catharine Hager, and after her death he 
married again, and by this second wife had twelve children. 
The first wife's descendants are all related to the Fishbacks. 
Hoffman's will was probated in Culpeper, August 17, 1772. 
He owned very large tracts of land in that county. His 
second wife must have been a young woman when he married 
her, for she lived well into the nineteenth century, and was 
in possession of much information about the early history of 
the colony and the men and women of it. Why did she not 
write it out for us? Whether or not she belonged in the 
colony, cannot now be told. John Hoffman left many 
descendants; they are scattered through Virginia and the 
west. One daughter married a Spilman. At least one of 
his sons by his second wife returned to Germany on a visit, 
before the end of the eighteenth century. So far as known 
this is the only case of the kind in the colony on record. 

It was for a long time supposed that Hoffman was the 
patriarch of the colony, but it now seems as if Harman Fish- 
back was living as late as July, 1775. He was certainly living 
in 1759 for his deposition in the case of Spilman vs. Gent is 
still on file. A man by the name, who must have been the 



70 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

emigrant, entered into a written marriage contract with a 
woman whose name appears to be Mary Neas (this is the best 
reading that can be made of it) in 1745. It is preserved in 
the Prince William records. A Harman Fishback, a resident 
of Culpeper, with Harman, his son a resident of Fauquier, 
were making deeds of lands in the Germantown tract in 1775, 
but no positive connection can be made between this man 
and the emigrant. No will of his appears in either Culpeper 
or Fauquier, and the date of his death is unknown. The 
elder Harman, above mentioned, had a daughter who married 
a Taylor. 

This leaves Martin, Coons and Broomback undisposed of. 
The latter apparently died early and without male issue. 
No trace of him can be found in any of the records after 1741. 
At that date three married women, with their husbands, 
make a deed for part of the Germantown tract, and the deed 
recites that it is part of the land set off to Milchard Broom- 
back. Coons seems to have been making deeds until 1760. 
The date of his death is unknown. One of his daughters 
married a son of the Kemper emigrant. The date of Martin's 
death is also at present unknown. Many descendants of 
Martin and Coons are still living in Virginia, Kentucky and 
the west. 

Two comments at least can be made on the members of this 
colony. By intermarriages they were all related, and if the 
Fishbacks who peruse this record think they have not rela- 
tives enough therein set forth, they can easily claim kinship 
with the descendants of all the other emigrants. Further, 
they were numerous. It would indeed be an interesting study 
to ascertain how many citizens of these United States are or 
have been descended from these twelve sturdy Germans. 
It would run into the tens of thousands all in two hundred 
years. The writer knows of one family of sixteen children, 
three of fifteen, and of many of twelve. No wonder they 
were forced to leave Germantown, and no wonder the Great 
West was soon peopled, when the hive began to swarm. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 71 

As has been told Pastor Hager lived until 1737, at least his 
will was then probated. Apparently he left no descendants 
by the name of Hager in Virginia. This would argue that 
none of his sons came to Virginia. We have seen one went to 
New York, and the tradition is he left children. There is at 
the present time a prominent family in Kentucky by the 
name of Hager. It may have come from Hagerstown, Mary- 
land, which was settled about 1750 by a Doctor Hager, who 
was no relation to Parson Hager; at least if they were related 
the relationship long antedates the coming of either man to 
America. 

Many descendants of this colony have been and are now 
prominent in their adopted country's history. The five gover- 
nors have been mentioned. There have been numerous con- 
gressmen, judges, members of legislatures, mayors, and other 
municipal and county officers among them, but to tell about 
them would take us too far afield. Many from these 
families were in the Revolutionary army. The writer 
did not begin making a record of them, and so did not 
take it up later. Of course John Fishback was not 
in the army, and it is not very likely any of his sons 
were, for they were all pretty well along in years, even by 
1775. But scores of the third generation of all the families 
were undoubtedly in the army. The United States govern- 
ment pensioned all Revolutionary soldiers living in 1832, and 
if any soldier was living in 1832 who drew a pension (and no 
doubt they all did), his name and service can be obtained from 
the pension office. It now maintains a bureau which does 
nothing but hunt up such records, without charge to the 
applicant. 

The burial place of not a single member of this colony, or 
of any of their wives is certainly known at this date. Even 
the burial place of that leader of his flock, Pastor Hager, is 
unknown. In those days the only tombstones in Virginia were 
of marble. They were brought from England at large expense. 
The writer and those who have assisted him in Virginia have 



72 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

spent a large amount of time hunting for the grave of John 
Fishback, but all in vain. No doubt there were rude stones 
of granite or sandstone at the grave of each of these men, but 
no inscriptions could be carved on them. The writer has seen 
many such stones in the early family graveyards in Virginia, 
but not one could be identified. In the Fishback graveyard 
at Jeffersonton there are about twenty such and no doubt 
(John) Frederick Fishback, and his two wives are under some 
of them, but no one knows. In the Kemper graveyard at 
Cedar Grove there were several such, fifty years ago, and one 
or two have survived to this day. Undoubtedly John Peter 
Kemper and his wife, Elizabeth Fishback, are buried there, 
and it has always been the tradition that the Kemper emigrant 
lies there also, but this is as near as we can come to it. The 
writer thinks it very doubtful if the grave of a single one of 
these emigrants will ever be discovered. 

As has been said John Frederick Fishback, so called in his 
father's will, but later always calling himself Frederick, was 
living in that part of Orange County which is now Culpeper 
by February 12, 1747. On that date (Book G, 39, Northern 
Neck Land Grants) he received a grant of 185 acres in the 
Little Fork of the Rappahannock, on Hegeman River. On 
June 4, 1748 (Book G, Gl) he received a grant for 990 acres in 
Orange Co., 400 acres of which was granted to his father, 
John Fishback, on September 28, 1730. This is also a part 
of the Jeffersonton tract, and is clearly the land given to 
Henry Fishback by John Fishback's will. The grant is to 
Frederick Fishback, of Orange County. All these grants 
were at a rental of one shilling for each 50 acres, payable 
annually at the feast of St. Michael the Archangel. It is 
likely that about this time he sold the plantation left him by 
his father in his will, and his brother Henry having died, and 
the Jeffersonton tract descending to him, moved over into 
Culpeper; it is also likely that the old part of the Jeffersonton 
house dates back at least this far. Frederick Fishback was 
twice married, but the dates of the marriages are not known.

HISTORICAL SKETCH. 73 

The dates of the births of only two of his children are certainly 
known, Jacob and Martin. The writer thinks Martin was 
the only child, at least the only son from the second marriage. 
John was the oldest son; he is always called "Squire John"; 
he was a Justice of the Peace for more than forty years. 
Martin received the old homestead by his father's will; he 
was born, married and died in the same room in it, and John 
lived north of Jeffersonton about one mile, and is buried there. 
Jacob Fishback in the spring of 1783 removed to what is now 
the extreme eastern part of Tennessee, but only remained 
there a few months, going on to Kentucky in the fall of that 
year and settling in the forks of Dicks River. The names of 
more than 800 of his descendants appear in the record. They 
were gathered together largely by Dr. T. M. Taylor, of New 
York. Frederick's son Frederick died unmarried. Upon the 
death of Martin Fishback in 1842, his then only living son 
Frederick went to Illinois. At this date, while there are 
hundreds of descendants of Frederick Fishback (the son of 
the emigrant) living in Culpeper County, there is not one 
named Fishback. The records of the Culpeper branches of 
this family have been largely gathered together by Miss Lucy 
Burnley Stark, of Ryland, Va. 

The son called John Jacob in the emigrant's will dropped 
the name Jacob, and was known as John. He was dead by 
February 7, 1789, leaving a widow Sarah whose dower was 
set off to her in 1797 in part of the 1,028 acre tract. Of his 
sons given in the record, the writer can learn nothing positive. 
There are Fishbacks, apparently descendants of this man, 
living today in Upper Fauquier, about The Plains, but they 
will not answer letters. There is a family living about Mt. 
Sterling, Kentucky, who are descended from a Jesse Fishback 
(who was killed at the battle of Fort Meigs in 1812) and a 
woman named Turley, who belong to this family, because 
deeds for some of the 1,028 acre tract are signed and ack- 
nowledged in Kentucky, and a man named Turley in Vir- 
ginia is given power of attorney to sell it because Jesse and his 



74 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

wife are going to Kentucky. The Mt. Stirling family can not 
give their descent. 

John Philip's family, or Philip as he called himself in his 
will, is given pretty fully in the record. The sons all came 
west, and are to be found in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana, 
descendants of the daughters are to be found in Virginia. 
The record of this family has largely been gathered together 
by Miss Sallie Yowles, of Mallow, Va. 

The emigrant's son Josiah, his son Nelson, and Nelson's son 
Josiah T. have lived to this day on the 1,028-acre tract. A 
large part of this tract is still owned by Mr. Josiah T. Fish- 
back, of Farmington, near The Plains, Fauquier Co., Ya. 
He is now in his ninety-fourth year. The third generation 
from the emigrant is still in possession of this land. 

Jacob Fishback was the first of the family to go west, about 
1783. Many other members of the family left Virginia about 
the close of the Revolution, generally going first to Kentucky, 
from which state they have scattered all over the west and 
south. Many states of the Union today shelter more Fish- 
backs than Virginia; but the writer thinks they all look fondly 
back to "Home — way down in Old Virginia." 

In closing, the writer would like to call attention to the fact 
that April, 1914, was the two hundredth anniversary of the 
settlement of "Our Colony" at Germanna. 

Why would it not be the proper thing for all the descendants 
of these twelve families to join together and erect a suitable 
monument at Germanna, to commemorate the settlement of 
the first organized German colony to come to Virginia? The 
names of these twelve sturdy Germans, with Pastor Hager's 
name also, should be carved upon it, with a suitable inscrip- 
tion telling why it was erected. Germanna at present may 
seem a little difficult to reach, because there is no railroad near 
it; but it will not always be so. It is in the midst of the 
Virginia battlefields, and the day is not far off when they will 
be marked with suitable monuments, as Gettysburg and other 
battlefields have been; and then there will be some method of 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 75 

reaching Germanna. It should not be difficult, among the 
many thousands of descendants of these twelve German 
families, to raise enough money to erect a suitable monument. 
In conclusion the writer desires to say that the career of 
the Fishback family (as well as the careers of the other families 
of this colony) in this country is deserving of the highest 
consideration. It was comparitively easy for an English 
family, descended from an ancestor of high degree, with 
wealth, prestige, education to back it, to settle down in 
Virginia, and achieve distinction and success, or preserve 
them. But for a family of foreign birth and lineage, without 
the glamor of high descent, without wealth, with little edu- 
cation, of an alien language and religion, to come to Virginia, 
and settle down among a haughty people, if not hostile at 
least unfriendly, with only its piety and the strong arms and 
stout hearts of its men and women to aid it, and achieve the 
measure of success that this family has done, is worthy of the 
highest praise. Surely America is the land of opportunity.

GENEALOGY OF THE FISHBACK FAMILY 



DIRECTIONS FOR CONSULTING THE GENEALOGY. 

The arrangement of the genealogical matter is simple. It 
is by generations, every member of the prior generation being 
given before the next is started. 

It will be noticed that there are three rows of numbers at 
the left side of the pages. The roman numbers, standing 
next before the names, simply show the number of children in 
a family and of course vary in every family. The middle row 
of numbers is continued from the first page of the genealogy 
to the last, so that every person recorded has his own number 
and retains it always. The third row of numbers, in black- 
faced type, refers back to the previous generation, and corre- 
sponds with the personal number in the second row, opposite 
the name of an individual belonging to the said previous 
generation. 

To avoid the necessity of looking forward into the next 
generation to see if anything further is recorded concerning a 
person, the name of each individual who will reappear in a 
subsequent generation, is followed by the character f. By this 
method, a name can be traced from the beginning of the record 
through it to its end, or from the rear backward to the emi- 
grant, by simply following the number. For example, if you 
wish to follow the family of John Frederick Fishback — On page 
81 his number is 2. Now turn to the next generation, to 
where 2 appears in the outside column. It will be found on 
page 84. If you wish to follow John Frederick's son Jacob, 
it will be seen on this page that his number is 20. Turn to 
the next generation where 20 appears in the outside row of 
numbers. It will be found on page 90. His daughter Anne, 
No. 82, will be found in the next generation where 82 is seen 
in the outside column on page 118. The record of Anne's 
son, Jacob Fishback Price, No. 222, is found in the next 
7 79 



80 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

generation where 222 appears in black-faced type on page 155. 
And the record of his daughter, Maria Louise, No. 593, will 
be found in the next generation where 593 is in black-faced 
type on page 236. It is obvious that if you commenced with 
593 and wished to trace her ancestors back to the emigrant, 
all you need to do is to look in the prior generation where 593 
appears in the middle row of numbers, and so on.

2 JOHN FREDERICK FISHBACK. 

He lived the latter part of his life and died at his home 
"Fleetwood," about a quarter of a mile west of the present 
village of Jeffersonton, about 16 miles north of Culpeper 
C. H., in Culpeper Co., Va., as did his son Martin and Martin's 
son Frederick. All are supposed to be buried in the family 
graveyard, adjoining the house, still standing (1914). Martin 
and Frederick certainly are.

At this date (1914) it cannot be positively stated that Martin

this date positively known. 

6 JOHN JACOB FISHBACK. 

The 1,028 acres given the four children of John Fishback 
by his will, were divided between Jacob, Philip and Josiah, as 
the Fauquier records show. It lay in Upper Fauquier near 
"The Plains." This man seems to have dropped the Jacob 
and was known as John. He was dead prior to 7 Feby., 1789, 
for at that date his wife Sarah was acting as his administratrix; 
her dower was set off in his share of the 1,028 acres, by com- 
missioners in Fauquier 3 Nov., 1797, and confirmed by the 
court 22 Jany., 1798. From deeds in B. 10, 142, and 13, 524, 
Fauquier, on Dec. 11, 1797, he had the following heirs, then 
all of age.

Descendants of some of these men married into the Turley 
family and went to Kentucky about 1807, and are to be found 
about Carlisle; there are still Fishbacks supposed to be de- 
scendants of this man, whose P. O. address is Marshall, Va. 
(Fauquier, Co.), but they will not answer letters.

JACOB FISHBACK. 

(1749-1821.) 

Jacob Fishback was born April 14, 1749, in Culpeper 
County, Virginia. He grew up until he was eighteen years 
old without feeling any concern about religion, as was the 
habit with his companions and neighbors. When he was about 



THIRD GENERATION. 91 

that age he went with his cousin James Kemper,* who was 
more than three years his junior, sixteen or eighteen miles to a 
meeting, on the Sabbath, to see some young men and girls 
who were expected to be there. On the way he spoke freely 
his views and feelings about religion. When they arrived they 
found Mr. Waddel preaching. His solemn personal appear- 
ance and the impressive manner and matter of his discourse at 
once arrested Jacob's attention and engaged his whole soul. 

The minister was discoursing upon the subject of human 
depravity and the deceitfulness and corruption of the 
human heart. Mr. Waddel was later the blind preacher 
whose eloquence was described by William Wirt in the British 
Spy. The appeal of the speaker went so directly to the heart 
of the young man, he afterward said, that it appeared to him 
as if the preacher had a perfect acquaintance with his own 
thoughts and feelings, and the deceitfulness and deep, innate 
wickedness of his own heart was so clearly seen and described, 
that he believed it had been made known to the preacher by 
some person who had been intimately acquainted with him, 
and he suspected James Kemper of telling Mr. Waddel all 
about it. This he charged him with. However, Kemper had 
not spoken a word to the preacher, with whom he had not been 
personally acquainted. 

From this period Jacob Fishback was brought under deep 
concern about his own soul, and continued serious, read his 
bible and prayed until he found relief by faith in Jesus Christ. 
However, he did not join any church for many years after, 
for there was none that professed to have practical piety in it, 
in the neighborhood in which he lived. 

Jacob Fishback married Phebe Morgan, of Fauquier County, 
Virginia, February 19, 1771. 

* James Kemper followed Jacob Fishback to Kentucky in 1785 at the 
earnest solicitation of Rev. David Rice and taught the first grammar 
school opened in that territory the same year. This was close to Harmony 
Church near Buena Vista in the forks of Dick's River.

Washington, D. C, June 25, 1912. 

The "consent" and "marriage bond" given below were found 
by me in the Circuit Clerk's Office at Warrenton, Fauquier 
County, Virginia, on the 22d day of November, 1911. The 
"consent" was on a small slip of paper folded up in the "marri- 
age bond." Both were well preserved and perfectly legible, 
in fact the ink was as strong as ever. The documents are 
certainly of interest to all of the descendants of Jacob Fish- 
back and Phebe Morgan, who are legion.

"Know all men by these presents that we Jacob Fishback

and truly to be made to our said Lord the King his heirs and 
successors we bind ourselves our heirs executors and adminis- 
trators firmly by these presents sealed with our seals and 
dated this 18" day of February, 1771. The condition of the 
above obligation is such that whereas there is a marriage 
shortly intended to be solemnized between the above bound 
Jacob Fishback and Phebe Morgan for which a license has 
issued now if there be no lawful cause to obstruct the said 
intended marriage then the above obligation to be void other- 
wise to remain in force.

Clerk's Office of Fauquier Circuit Court, Nov. 22, 1911. 

I, John R. Turner, Clerk of the Circuit Court of Fauquier 
County in the State of Virginia, do certify that the foregoing 
are true eopies of the consent, and marriage bond of Jacob 
Fishback, as the same now appear on file in said office. 

(Teste) Jno. R. Turner, Clerk. 



Hezekiah Balch, a Presbyterian minister, preached fre- 
quently in the neighborhood of the Fishbacks in Virginia; 
and he and Jacob afterwards settled together in what is now 
Green County, East Tennessee. 

In the fall of the year 1783 Jacob Fishback moved with his 
family to the district of Kentucky, and settled at the forks of 
Dick's River about five miles from the mouth of Hickman 
(Garrard County). He soon became acquainted with Rev. 
David Rice, of Harrodsburgh, who preached at Cane Run and 
at Danville. Jacob Fishback frequently attended his preach- 
ing and joined in the formation of his church near Cane Run. 
This was his first formal connection with the church and his 
wife joined with him. 

In 1787 Jacob Fishback moved to the north side of the 
Kentucky river and located in Fayette — later Clark — County, 
twelve miles east of Lexington, where he resided until his 
death. Here he united with a few individuals who lived at a 
distance from one another, in forming the Presbyterian 
church called Salem, which continues to the present day, and 
whose members, for the most part, are his descendants. 

An illustration of Jacob Fishback's regard and veneration 
for the Sabbath occurred soon after he moved to Kentucky. 
He had a brother-in-law (Charles Spilman) who had settled 
in that vicinity several years before Jacob's arrival. Spilman 
proposed that they with their children should visit one another 
in turn on alternate Sabbaths and dine together that they 
might become better acquainted and more intimate. This 
proposition was made after his brother-in-law had visited 



94 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

him several times on the Sabbath without anv return. Jacob 
solemnly replied, "Charles, I shall be glad to see you at my 
home and visit you at any other time except on the Sabbath, 
that day I consider to be the Lord's day and feel it to be a 
religious duty to employ it in His service." 

Jacob Fishback was a man of great benevolence and most 
expansive charity, not merely in profession but in conduct. 
No man it is believed lived who had deeper views of human 
depravity and more humbling views of himself than he had, 
or more exalted ones of God's grace in the gift of his Son, and 
salvation bv Him. These thoughts imbued everv sentiment 
that he entertained on the subject of Christianity and his life 
was a perpetual proof of the sincerity of his faith. His un- 
selfish interest in all about him gave him a unique influence 
in his community and among a wide circle of friends. In a 
brief autobiographic sketch written in 1837 at the request of 
his own children, Mr. Hubbard Taylor, who was perhaps his 
nearest neighbor, bears witness: "Here I must mention the 
friendship and kindness I received from Mr. Jacob Fishback 
and his Lady; it has lasted uninterruptedly during their lives, 
and I with gratitude preserve their memory." 

In the years 1791-2-3 a number of young Presbyterian 
preachers from Virginia and Carolina visited Kentucky, 
among whom were C. Allen, Robert Marshall, James Blythe 
and Wlliam Callhoon. They were greatly aided by Jacob 
Fishback in more ways than one, in successfully prosecuting 
their ministerial labors. He also was in the habit of reproving 
them for their occasional levity and indiscretion. They 
named him "Old Israel," an appellation intended to express 
the profound veneration in which he was held. 

As has been indicated already, piety and a love for the 
Christian religion were the ruling elements in Jacob Fish- 
back's life and character. He had a peculiar talent and turn 
of mind for engaging the attention of his acquaintances on 
the subject of religion, both in conversation and by letter 
writing. Perhaps no man in the Western country did more 
good by these means and particularly among young people. 




Jacob Fishback. 
(1749-1821.) 



PUE 









THIRD GENERATION. 95 

While in Detroit, Michigan, a few years ago, by the courtesy 
of the late Mr. W. K. Anderson, the compiler of this biography 
was handed a well-preserved collection of about two dozen 
letters written almost a century before by Jacob Fishback to 
Mrs. Matilda Robertson, Mr. A.'s grandmother. In 1811 the 
recipient had suffered the loss of her husband by a tragic 
death in Frankfort, and the sympathy for his young friend 
was poured out in these letters during the remaining ten years 
of his life. The value she placed upon his friendship is shown 
by the manner in which they were treasured. Besides the 
expressions of close friendship — for Mrs. Robertson was the 
girlhood companion of several of his daughters — the prevailing 
and dominant sentiment of these long communications was 
deeply religious. She was addressed as "My dear Friend and 
Sister in the Truth." After a brief paragraph or two giving 
items of friendly interest and solicitous inquiries regarding the 
health of herself and children (each mentioned by name) and 
conveying his affectionate respects to her "Honored Father" 
(Commodore Richard Taylor), the body of every letter was 
devoted to presenting the importance of Bible study, faith 
in God and personal piety. The themes were exhaustless and 
every inch of space upon large sheets of paper was filled in a 
fine, but legible hand which few of his many descendants could 
imitate and none of them excel. 

The broad Christian charity of the author of these letters 
was strikingly set forth in not infrequent references to the 
colored servants which each owned. Often his letter was 
concluded thus: "My wife joins me in sincere love to you, 
your dear Father, and sweet, little children, and to your 
black people too." On one occasion he speaks with enthusi- 
asm of the sermon of a white minister at the funeral service of 
a venerable negro — his son-in-law's "Old Harry." Another 
of his letters contains the following paragraph: 

"My wife is becoming, as I am, more and more the prey of 
age. I am distressed for my Black family, they are mine, my 
charge. God has put them under me and I have greatly

neglected the instruction of them. Should their souls be lost, 
should they perish for lack of knowledge, as thousands do, 
how shall I appear to have the blood of lost souls hanging on 
my skirts, or lost by my neglect? Can I be saved having had 
their sweat and hard labor and never teach them the things 
that belong to their eternal peace?" 

His death occurred at nine o'clock A. M. on September 15, 
1821, at his residence in Clark County, Kentucky, after an 
illness of about two weeks. He was survived by his wife and 
eleven children, as his was the first death that occurred in his 
family. 

The following Dedication in his own handwriting was found 
in a bundle of religious papers. It was endorsed — "First 
signed about thirty years ago." It will be noted that he 
signed it several times at subsequent periods. 

Dedication. 

" Having had it in my heart to make this solemn surrender 
of myself to God which I have done several times before, and 
to write and sign this covenant on the first day of the year 
seventeen days ago, but being so much hindered, I take part 
of this 17th day of January, 1819, and hope by the grace of 
God, to be enabled to do it acceptably; O Lord God Almighty, 
the God of nature and of all grace, I do humbly acknowledge 
myself thine though a sinner, my guilt is great and my fallen 
nature unspeakably vile and my state and condition in myself 
hopeless, I have forfeited thy favor, provoked thy wrath, and 
exposed myself to eternal misery, to the just condemnation of 
thv holv law. But, O Lord, I have heard from thv holv word 
that there is forgiveness with thee; Thou hast revealed thy- 
self as the Lord, the Lord God, gracious and merciful, slow 
to anger and abundant in goodness, and in truth, Thou hast 
provided an all sufficient, suitable and most compassionate 
Saviour; thou hast in him offered mercy, thou hast called 
sinners to return and live, I take the encouragement thou 
hast been graciously pleased to give and come unto thee 



THIRD GENERATION. 97 

God, renouncing my numerous aggravated sins of the heart 
and of the lips, I renounce my own righteousness and strength 
and accept of thy gracious offer and humbly take thee O Lord, 
to be my God; I take thee Lord Jesus Christ to be my Saviour, 
my all-wise prophet, my great atoning high priest and my all 
powerful king; I take thee Great God and Father of all to be 
my Father, reconciled through the merits of thine incarnate 
love; I take thee Holy Spirit to be my sanctifier, my guide 
to understand and apply thy blessed word of promise aright, 
so that I may receive the comforts it may afford to my soul; 
I rely upon thy holy word and plead thy faithful promises, O 
Lord, I give myself up to thee to be thine to be disposed of 
to thy honor and glory, to be devoted to thy service and show 
forth thy praise forever and ever, especially thy praises and 
glory manifested in the great work of redemption. 

"To thee I solemnly and deliberately dedicate myself, my 
soul and my body, my soul with all its powers of understanding, 
will and affections; my body with all its members and senses, 
my time and talents, my whole family, children and servants, 
all that I am and all that I have or possess. Amen and Amen ! 
Let the angels of heaven say amen, A-m-e-n. O, my soul! 
Adoration, praise and thanksgiving be unto thee Father, 
Son and Holy Ghost, the one true and living God, for all his 
kindness showed unto me from my infancy to the present 
hour of giving me his poor sinful rebellious creature so many 
and such high privileges more in numbers and greater in 
importance than my tongue or feeble pen can express all 
flowing though the gift and merits of the great Saviour of 
sinners to sinners of whom I am chief! Adored be God 
Almighty for the opportunity, capacity and will to make, 
write and subscribe this covenant this 17th day of January, 
1819. O, Lord God Almighty accept this transaction, 
sanctify, strengthen and uphold me through life, and at death 
by that faith which overcometh the world and all sin and fear 
at death, and accept all that thy unworthy servant has done 
here to strengthen his faith, confirm his hope and O, grant that

faith and love that cast out all fear through life, and at death 
which makes happy the soul through or in eternity, for Jesus 
Christ sake! Amen and amen. In thy name I hope for 
acceptance while I subscribe myself." 

Jacob Fishback. 

" Friday 17th of March, 1820. This day O Lord, I have set 
apart to prepare my heart by fasting and praying to thee, the 
Almighty to enable me by thy special grace to make a full 
hearty and sincere surrender of myself according to the words 
and expressions of the above written covenant. And I Lord 
my most sincere petition is what I daily beg for in the name 
and for the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ, to be pardoned and 
sanctified and delivered from the power and the dominion of 
sin, and every error, from every evil and false way and that 
I may be established in the favor of God and be enabled to 
overcome the world, the flesh and Satan and enjoy the liberty 
of God's children here and obtain an entrance at last among 
the sanctified in glory; O that I may be kept from the defile- 
ments of sin and from dishonoring the true and living God 
here by temptation and transgression and be enabled to honor 
him and the Lord Jesus and his cause by a life of loving and 
true faith, hope and charity while the short remains of my 
declining life shall be by his kind hand spread. 

'Here Lord, I give myself away, 
'Tis all that I can do.' 

"O heavenly Father may all be granted through the obedi- 
ence, blood, groans, agony, death and intercession of my Lord 
and Saviour Jesus Christ in whose presence I sign my worth- 
less name, O Lord thou knowest that none of all my doings 
are relied on by me to move thee towards me for thou art 
unchangeable and I am ashamed of my best works and re- 
nounce them all and rely alone for acceptance in thy sight 
upon the righteousness and atonement of the Great Redeemer 
of my person and duties and desires to praise thee forever, 

Amen." T ^ 

Jacob 1-ishback.

"Sabbath 18th of February, 1821. I am this day left alone; 
all are gone to Salem. I am afflicted with rheumatic pains. 
O Lord enable me this day once more with my whole heart 
to subscribe this dedication and be pleased to accept of thy 
unworthy unprofitable servant and his dedication Amen, 
amen! Lord Jesus accept of me for thy own name's sake 
Amen!" 

"Jacob Fishback:." 

He also signed it 17th March, 1821, and the following was 
his last signature and probably the last time he wrote any- 
thing before he died : 

"Sabbath 2nd, of September 1821. (He died 13 days after- 
wards.) I am this day left alone, all are gone to Salem to 
meeting, and being afflicted and in the 73rd year of my age 
am desirous to subscribe afresh this dedication, relying alone 
upon the Lord Jesus for acceptance with God."

PHEBE FISHBACK. 

(1751-1837.) 

Phebe, the daughter of William Morgan, was born in 
Fauquier County, Virginia, on September 13, 1751. She 
married Jacob Fishback February 19, 1771, and with him 
removed to Kentucky. She bore eleven children, all of 
whom survived her. The seven older children, namely 
William, John, James, Anna, Betsey, Jesse and Charles, were 
born in Culpeper County, Virginia. Hannah, Sallie and 
Lucy were born in what is now Garrard County, Kentucky; 
and Samuel Davies in Clark County, Kentucky. 

When she married, Phebe was not religious, but she re-

have been taken, often verbatim, from those prepared by their son James, 

and first published, in 1885, by Mr. McShelby Fishback of Louisville!,

spected true piety in others whenever she saw it and in none 
more than in her husband, whom she never failed to honor. 
She lost her mother at an early period of her life and she had 
the opportunity of only an ordinary education. However, 
she possessed a strong, well-regulated, practical mind remark- 
able for its equanimity, consistency, decision and persever- 
ance. Soon after her arrival in Kentucky she was brought 
under the ministration of Rev. David Rice and through faith 
she found peace with God. In company with her husband she 
joined the Harmony Presbyterian Church near Cane Run in 
Garrard County. 

Phebe in her religious life as in every other phase of her 
character manifested consistency and uniformity of mind. 
Her chief concern was to know her duty under every condition 
in life and then to do it. There was nothing weak, ostenta- 
tious or frivolous about her. She was never depressed or dis- 
couraged by adversity, or improperly elevated by prosperity. 
Very different was the disposition of Jacob Fishback. He 
was liable to discouragement and gloom, being himself of a 
nervous temperament. He often said that had it not been 
for the support and encouragement which his wife afforded 
Trim in the numerous trials and difficulties of raising a large 
family with scanty means in a wilderness he did not see how 
he could have accomplished it. She managed her domestic 
•concerns all in methodical order. Her constitution of body 
was uncommonly good, as was her mind its equal. She did 
not remember ever to have suffered with a headache. It was 
her invariable habit to retire and rise early and she never 
ate supper. 

Phebe Fishback survived her husband nearly sixteen years. 
When the hour for his departure arrived, with great gravity 
and religious solemnity she took his hand in both of hers and 
with deep feeling commended him to that God and Savior who 
had preserved and blessed them through all the trials and 
vicissitudes they had passed. The husband though appearing 
to sleep the sleep of death was roused from his slumbers and

opening wide his eyes grasped her hands in his, and with a 
countenance deeply affected commended her to the grace and 
protection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Both were passed 
seventy years of age at this time and had lived in uninterrupted 
confidence and affection more than fifty years of wedded life. 
All of their eleven children outlived their parents, some of 
them only a few years, however. 

A short time before Phebe's death an irritation affected a 
small mole on one of her cheeks. As a result of rubbing this 
became an open sore and later a phagedenic ulcer that ended 
fatally, August 16, 1837, within a month of her eighty-sixth 
birthday. A day or two before her death she requested one 
of her daughters to look in a certain trunk where she would 
find a sheet which she desired to be used as her winding sheet. 
Her husband, she said, had been buried in its fellow; both of 
them she had spun with her own hands sixty-six years before. 

Jacob and Phebe Fishback were buried in a spot chosen 
by him, about three hundred yards in a northerly direction 
from their dwelling in which both lived and died. The house 
has disappeared, but the graves are securely protected by a 
stone wall. The words of Solomon surely apply to this good 
woman — "The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her. 
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She 
openeth her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law 
of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, 
eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children rise up, and 
call her blessed, her husband also, and he praiseth her."

In the sketch of his own life he states that he married Miss

REVEREND JAMES FISHBACK. 

The autobiography left by Rev. James Fishback has never 
been published in full. The original work, in his own hand- 
writing, is now in the possession of his grandnephew, Mr. 
Frederick L. Fishback, of Washington, D. C. The latter's 
father was named James in honor of his uncle, and Frederick 
L. Fishback, in naming one of his sons for his father, is also 
keeping alive the name of the member of the family who, in 
his day and generation, achieved eminence as a physician, a 
lawyer and a divine. 

Dr. Fishback was born in Culpeper County, Virginia, 
February 4, 1776, the year that the independence of the 
United States was declared. His parents migrated to Ken- 
tucky in 1783 and arrived in October at their temporary home 
near the confluence of the Kentucky and Dick's rivers in what 
is now Garrard County. In 1787 they removed to Fayette 
County, Kentucky, and made their permanent home about 12 
miles east of Lexington. 

For more than a year, during 1793-4, young James attended 
the Transylvania Seminary in Lexington and during 1795-6 
his education was continued at a Presbyterian School at Pis- 
gah in Woodford County, which was conducted by Rev. 
Andrew Steel. Thereafter he chose the profession of medicine 
as his calling and entered ardently into the study of the 
different branches of science appertaining to it. During 1799 
and 1800 he attended a course of lectures upon medicine in 




Reverend James Fishback, M D. 
(1776-1845).

Philadelphia. Then he returned as far as Virginia, where 
he practised his profession in Culpeper and Prince William 
Counties until October 10, 1801, when he returned to 
Kentucky. 

On May 12, 1802, Dr. Fishback was married to Miss 
Dorothea Dandridge Christian, the youngest daughter of 
Colonel William and Anne Christian. She was born in Vir- 
ginia June 5th, 1785, and her mother was a sister of Patrick 
Henry. On June 8, 1841, he married secondly Mrs. Susan H. 
Shelby McKinney, the daughter of Gov. Isaac Shelby, of 
Kentucky. 

Soon after his return to Kentucky, Dr. Fishback established 
hi mself in the practice of medicine in Lexington. In 1805 he 
was professor of the theory and practice of medicine in the 
Transylvania University, but for some reason resigned the 
position the following year. In 1808 he was a member of the 
State Legislature and by 1810 he says: "The practice of 
medicine which I had followed with great assiduity had 
become disagreeable to me, and I had for some short time 
engaged in the study of law. This I did as much for the knowl- 
edge of the principles of law as for anything else, and I en- 
gaged in the practice of it up to the end of the year 1816." 

We have thus far considered Dr. Fishback as an exponent 
of two of the learned professions. In each of these he attained 
more than ordinary success and honor. But his career, to 
this period of his life, must be regarded as, in a degree, only 
preliminary to his major activities in theology. These brought 
him even greater distinction. On several occasions in early 
life, the pious examples of his parents caused him to consider 
seriously the subject of religion, but during his experiences 
as a medical student the effects of these influences were 
apparently lost. However, he could not have been long estab- 
lished in Lexington before problems in theology lay firm and 
permanent hold upon his mind, for in 1809 we find that he 
published an extensive pamphlet by which he "exploded 
Natural Religion and the existence of religion in the world of 
Revelation." 



116 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

In 1810 Dr. Fishback united with the Presbyterian church 
in Lexington under the pastoral care of Rev. R. H. Cunning- 
ham; and very soon organized a Wednesday evening prayer 
meeting in that church. 

As it refers to the most vital part of his career it seems best 
to quote his own account of the controversies that attended 
Dr. Fishback's entrance upon religious affairs. 

"In 1813 I published my book entitled ' The philosophy of 
the human mind in regard to religion, or a demonstration that 
Religion entered the world by Revelation.' "The book con- 
sisted of 306 pages Octavo. 

"This volume contained much original matter in defense of 
the Bible. It excited much attention and great opposition 
but was never refuted. It caused me to be summoned before 
the Session of the Presbyterian Church in Lexington and 
after a long trial I was condemned by the Session for heresy, 
from which I took an appeal to the Presbytery and was there 
condemned. From that decision I appealed to the Synod 
and had the judgment of the lower courts set aside. 

"Alexander Campbell, who then lived in Brooke County, 
Virginia, got one of the books and read it in 1814 or 1815, 
and he informed me afterwards that it was the first view he 
had ever had of the origin, nature, design and use of the word 
of God. He at once exploded Natural Religion and adopted 
the principles fully contained in the Philosophy. It was 
these principles that he brought to bear so forcefully and 
triumphantly in his debate with R. Owens at Cincinnati 
against Atheism. His arguments contain much that is in 
my book and in some parts is literally extracted from it. All 
that he had said and written that is true in building up his 
new Sect he has obtained from the above book. And had he 
not have wholly corrupted and perverted the doctrine of 
Justification or remission of sin by regarding immersion as 
essential to remission he would have done much for the interest 
of religion. So true is it that a person or church that is wrong 
on the subject of Justification cannot be right on any other 
in religion. 



FOURTH GENERATION. 117 

"Mr. Campbell has raised up a new Sect by dividing the 
Baptist Churches and uniting with B. W. Stone who denies 
the atonement altogether as consisting in the vicarious suffer- 
ings and death of Jesus Christ. The point of their agreement 
is in the remission of sin in Baptism. 

"When I joined the Presbyterian Church in 1810 I had not 
investigated the subject of Baptism either as to the proper 
subjects of it or as to the mode, meaning, or origin of it. 
At a subsequent period I attended to it and found that the 
Scriptural views of the ordinance had been wholly mistaken 
by Pedobaptists, and after examining the Baptist views of 
it and the order of the church was convinced that in these 
respects the Baptists were right and was baptised at Bryants 
the 4th Saturday in November 1816, and on the 4th Saturday 
in the next month, December 1816, was licensed to preach the 
Gospel as a member of the Baptist Church. The month after 
I joined the first Baptist Church in Lexington, then just 
constituted. 

"I now abandoned all other pursuits and gave myself 
wholly to the ministry of the word and August 22, 1817, was 
ordained in the first Presbyterian Meeting House in Lexington, 
in which I had seven years before made a profession of religion. 
I was ordained* by the laying on of hands of a Presbytery 
composed of Elder Jac. Breath, J. Vardeman and Jas. Welch." 

The honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity was conferred 
upon Dr. Fishback by Transylvania University, July 9, 1823. 

From early in May, 1826, until September 27, Dr. Fishback 
was absent from Lexington on a tour devoted to the investi- 
gations into the methods of religious teachings. He visited 
Wheeling, Pittsburg, Erie, Buffalo, Schenectady, Albany, 
Boston, Salem, Andover, Providence, Hartford, New Haven, 
New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore. 

Beside giving freely of his time, energy and means to the 
upbuilding of the Baptist Church in Lexington, which under 

* The original certificate of ordination is in the possession of F. L. 
Fishback, of Washington, D. C. 



118 THE FISHBACK FAMILY. 

his hand rose in ten years from a membership of 8 or 10 to 
175, Dr. Fishback was for 17 years, prior to 1841, pastor of 
the Mount Vernon Baptist Church in Woodford County, 
Kentucky. 

Not a little difference of opinion has been expressed as to 
which of the denominations Dr. Fishback was in doctrinal 
accord with at the time of his death. It is safe to say that 
the creed or confession of faith of neither the Baptist nor the 
Christian (Campbellite) church wholly satisfied one enter- 
taining such positive personal views; however, it is certain 
that he held essential articles with each. Nevertheless there 
is no evidence to show that his union with the Baptist church 
was ever broken. 

He died, after a lingering illness, June 26, 1845.

116 OWEN T. FISHBACK. 

(John, John Philip, John.) 

The subject of this sketch was born in Fauquier County, 
Virginia, August 29, 1791. His father was a soldier of the 
Revolution. His mother was a member of the celebrated 
Pickett family of Virginia. To his sturdy German blood was 
added some of the best English strains, for he was descended 
from the Metcalf and Mildmay families, prominent in English 
history for hundreds of years. With thousands of Virginians, 
after the close of the Revolutionary War, his father emigrated 
to Kentucky, and settled in Mason County in 1796. A few 
years later, in 1805, he moved to Augusta in Bracken County, 
then one of the largest towns in eastern Kentucky. He ob- 
tained the best education the schools of that day could afford, 
but was compelled to supplement this by his own efforts, 
and was largely self educated, as were so many of the promi- 
nent men of those davs. He determined to studv law, and 
did so under all the difficulties of the times, doing his reading 



FOURTH GENERATION. 131 

in the law office of Martin Marshall, then one of the leading 
lawyers of the day, and a member of the celebrated Marshall 
family, which produced the great Chief Justice of the United 
States. He was admitted to the bar in 1814. 

In 1815 he determined to cast his lot with the new free State 
of Ohio, and moved across the Ohio River, to Williamsburg, 
then the county seat of Clermont County, Ohio. He plunged 
into the midst of the bitter politics of the time — was known 
by everyone, and from his upright character, his positive 
manner, and his love of free institutions, counted his friends, 
as well as his enemies, by the hundreds. His ability as a man 
and a lawyer soon gave him an extended and lucrative practice. 
On April 12, 1817, he was married to Miss Caroline Huber, of 
Williamsburg, a member of a prominent family of the county. 
The county seat of Clermont County was moved to Batavia, 
Ohio, in 1825, and on March IS of that year he cast in his 
lot with that new town, where he lived for the remainder of 
his life. 

His political life covered nearly half a century. He was 
several times elected prosecuting attorney of his county. He 
was elected a member of the House of the Twenty-fifth General 
Assembly of Ohio, which convened December 4, 1826. He 
was a member of the Senate of the Twenty-second and Twenty- 
third General Assemblies of Ohio, which convened December 
1, 1822, and December 6, 1823. He was prominently men- 
tioned for the Senate of the United States; but Clermont 
County, Ohio, at the time was a hive of prominent men, and 
another resident of the county was elected. 

Under the old constitution of Ohio, he held by appointment 
of the Governor the office of Presiding Judge of the Court of 
Common Pleas for the Tenth Circuit in which Clermont 
County was situated, from 1841 to 1848. Here his judicial 
career was marked by conspicuous ability, in a circuit where 
there were at the time many strong men and able lawyers. 
He continued to practice law in Batavia until his death, which 
occurred there on March 23, 1865. His wife had died in 



132 THE PISHBACK FAMILY. 

October, 1854; and in May, 1855, he married Mrs. Lucinda 
Evans, who survived until 1911. 

Five daughters and four sons by his first marriage survived 
him. The sons were all prominent men in their day and 
generation. George was the owner of the St. Louis Democrat, 
a prominent Republican newspaper of St. Louis, during the 
Civil War. William P. was a well-known lawyer of Indi- 
anapolis and a partner of President Benjamin Harrison. 
Owen T., Jr., was a war correspondent on his brother's paper, 
and at the time of his death was clerk of the Supreme Court 
of Missouri. 

To paraphrase slightly Napier's celebrated eulogium on 
Ridge, no man lived in southwestern Ohio, in those days, 
with more honor and ability than he; yet many able men 
lived there, and there was much honor and ability.

GOVERNOR WILLIAM MEADE FISHBACK OF 

ARKANSAS. 

At Jeffersonton in Culpeper County, Va., William M. Fish- 
back was born November 5th, 1831. He grew to manhood 
about the old Fishback home at Jeffersonton but after his 
father's death in 1848, the mother with her children emigrated 
to the rising young State of Illinois in 1852. He graduated 
at the University of Virginia with the class of 1855 and im- 
mediately began the study of law with Mr. Luther R. Spil- 
man of Richmond. The year 1857 he spent in Illinois where 
he met Mr. Lincoln who entrusted him with the transaction of 
important business. The following year he was admitted to 
the bar and located in Arkansas where he received fees from 
'Mr. Lincoln for services rendered, together with the advice 
to return to Illinois as a much better field in which to practice 
his profession. Mr. Fishback did not act upon this friendly 
suggestion, but soon formed a partnership in Fort Smith 
instead. 

Only a few years passed before the integrity, public spirit 
;and legal ability of Mr. Fishback were recognized in the state 
•of his adoption. He was chosen a member of the Constitu- 
tional Convention which met in Little Rock in 1861. When 
disruption of the Union came up for consideration the same 
year, he voted for the secession of Arkansas, thereby hoping 
to compel the North to adopt a compromise. But when this 
was rejected by Congress, he joined the Union cause and 
raised the 4th Arkansas Cavalry — a regiment about 900 strong. 
In 1S03 we find him also editing in Little Rock a paper called 
the " Unconditional Union." 



FIFTH GENERATION. 197 

During 1864 Mr. Fishback was duly elected to the United 
States Senate; but in the meanwhile, as a member of the con- 
vention, he had written the greater part of a new State Con- 
stitution for Arkansas. This is generally known as the 
"Fishback Constitution." In it only white suffrage was pro- 
vided for, while Congress under the recently adopted amend- 
ments to the National Constitution refused to admit his 
State to the Union, or seat Mr. Fishback in the Senate unless 
the word "white" was stricken out of his constitution. This 
he refused to do and hence never entered the Senate. But 
the next year he was appointed United States Treasury Agent 
for Arkansas. 

In 1867 Colonel Fishback, as he was then called, married 
Miss Adelaide Miller, a daughter of Joseph Miller of Fort 
Smith. Before her death in 1882 she bore him 3 sons and 
2 daughters (see genealogy). 

As a member of the State Legislature, Colonel Fishback 
served in 1877, 1879 and 1885. During his term in 1879 he 
introduced a joint resolution, proposing an Amendment to 
the Constitution to prohibit the payment of principal or 
interest of a large number of "Funding Bonds," created by 
acts passed during a period of irresponsibility. This amend- 
ment was rejected by a popular vote in 1880 but, when re- 
submitted in 1884, it was adopted. 

During 1888 Colonel Fishback was a prominent candidate 
for Governor, but was defeated in the Convention; in 1892 
he refused to exert himself to secure the nomination. How- 
ever, the people demanded it and he received more than 
five-sixths of the votes at the nominating convention and was 
later elected by a majority greater than any candidate had
