NEU OF GERMANY 



nye 



The Nyes who are descended from the NEU family of 
Germany may display the Neu of Germany coat of arms, 
Authority is from Sibmacher Wappenbuch, Volume II, 
part 1 which gives (translated): 

"Bestowed by Kaiser Mathias, 1614; 
In shield, two oblique bars, the upper red, 
the lower blue; between the two three yellow 
rising moons. On the helmet red-silver 
and silver-blue divided horns, a star with 
a red flame coming out of the point. "

INTRODUCTION 

When the Nye Family of America Association began its search in 
1963 for data to update the Genealogy of the Nye Family, first published 
in 1907, it was believed that virtually all Nyes were of common origin. 
Indeed, in sheer numbers, the descendants of Benjamin and Katherine 
(Tupper) Nye, the first known of Nye name on this continent do represent 
a sizeable majority of the Nye population in the United States. However, 
early in the survey, groups of Nyes began to be identified who could not 
be traced to any connection with Benjamin. Traced far enough, they al- 
most always disappeared into the early history of Pennsylvania. 

That there was such a problem in Nye history was known to the 
compiler of the first Nye genealogy as evidenced in addresses by George 
H. Nye at Nye Family reunions in the early 1900's. Whether he had at- 
tempted to solve the riddle is unknown, as his records were lost in the 
intervening years. 

The first break in solving the mystery came when Charles W. 
Nye of Ellwood City, Pa. called attention to, and loaned a copy of a splen- 
did genealogy of the Andrew Nye family of Ellwood City. This document, 
described later in this book was never published; the only known copy 
available for public study is a microfilm copy in the Genealogy Library of 
the L. D. S. Church in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is of interest that the 
compilers of that genealogy also believed that they were descended from 
Benjamin and Katherine. Meanwhile, data coming in from the survey be- 
gan to identify other large groups of Pennsylvania origin, and individuals 
of these families began to work diligently in collecting and organizing 
their family histories. The Nye Family of America Association, early 
recognizing the responsibility of preserving the data being collected, 
planned first to include the material in a special section of the Volume II 
of Benjamin Nye's descendents, even though it was obvious there was no 
blood relationship to these groups. As the volume of information grew, 
economics and problems of reader convenience initiated the decision to 
create a separate volume. Thus, this book came into being. 

To understand the origins of the Pennsylvania Nyes, we must 
look to the history of the area of Europe lying west of the Rhine River in 
Germany which was known as the Palatinate. In the late 1600's this peace- 
ful area of largely Protestant faith began an era of dreadful persecution 
and general turmoil. In the autumn of 1685, Louis XIV of France revoked 
the Edict of Nantes which had protected the individual rights of the French 
in religious freedom. Liberals and Protestants in France fled from the 
resultant wave of religious persecution into neighboring areas, notably 
the Palatinate . There, they were made welcome by the kindness and 
similar beliefs of the native peoples. 

The harboring of these fugitives evoked the wi-ath of Louis and 
he sent an army of 50, 000 into the area with orders "to make the Pala- 
tinate a desert". 

In 1690, John Williams became the Elector Palatine and sought 
to bring the Palatinate under the Roman See, and thus initiated an era of 
religious persecution from within. The Spanish Succession occupied the 
area from 1701-1713, this era being terminated by the Peace of Utrecht. 
During this period, in 17 07, Marshall Villars had again led the French 



V 



Army into the Palatinate to deliberately wreak desolation. 

The terrors and cruelties of their invading tormentors and the 
bigotries of their local government caused a great exodus of fugitives, both 
of the Palatines, and the people whom they had earlier sheltered. They 
were made welcome by the British, among others, both for compassionate 
reasons, and at least by the British, for practical reasons. Colonists 
were needed in the new world. Every assistance was given to those who 
wished to emigrate to America, and who would take the oath of allegiance. 
Tens of thousands came in the resulting wave of immigration, largely 
leaving Europe through the port of Rotterdam, Holland, and entering 
America through the port of Philadelphia. They were given in ships' pas- 
senger lists simply as "Palatines". The term Palatine was used synono- 
mously to mean foreigner and does not necessarily mean that the immi- 
grant was from the Palatinate, many being French Huguenots, or from 
Holland or other surrounding areas of Europe. 

Thus, the genealogist attempting to pierce the veil of history 
finds an impassable barrier. There just are no records earlier than the 
first traces of most of these immigrants in this country. How many of 
those now known as Nye are descended from the ancient and royal German 
family of Neu or how many from Germanized French Huguenot families of 
Noye, or other sources may never be known. The one exception hi this 
book is the family of George Ludwig Neu who was not a Palatine, but in- 
stead from Bavaria, Germany. 

A list has been compiled of those whose name is known to have 
evolved into Nye, or could have done so. Those whose descendants are 
listed in this book are preceded by an asterisk (*). The spelling of the 
surnames is often uncertain. Many, perhaps most, were illiterate and 
signed their names simply as (X). The names on ships' passenger lists, 
oaths of allegiance, etc. , were presumably spelled phonetically by the 
recorders so that names proven to be of the same person may turn up 
with spellings such as Neu, Ney, Neigh, Nigh or Nye. The same holds 
for several succeeding generations in ta.x lists, wills, land records, 
military records, etc. in Pennsylvania and neighboring states. 

1. Jasper Neye, also known as Casper Neye, October 2, 1727 on the 
Adventure Galley. 

*2. Andreas Nay, also listed as Andtreas Ney and Andtreas Nay, Septem- 
ber 29, 1733 on the Pink Mary. Also with him was his wife Maria 
Elizabeth and children, Maria Elizabeth 7 and Hans (John) Michel, 
age 3-1/2. They later settled in Northamton County. 

3. Fallendin Neu, also known as Vallentin Neu, age 24, September 1, 

1736 on the Harle. With him was his wife Ann Catherine, age 25. 
They settled in Berks Co. and had at least four children, George, 
Valentine, Sylvester and Elizabeth. (See footnote.) 

4. Johan Casper Nayn, also listed as Johan Casper Neun, October 5, 

1737 on the Townshend. 

5. Joseph Neig, age 23, December 3, 1740 on the Samuel. He was the 
brother of Peter Neu who arrived later, October 1, 1754, sons of 



VI 



George and Christina Margaret (Gentess) Neu, citizens of Breitfurt 
in the County of Hudelburg in the Electoral of Palatinate, Germany. 

6. Otto Ney, September 30, 1723 on the ships Phoenix and Robert & 
Alice (via Cowes, England). 

7. Johannes Neu, also listed as Neun on the Two Brothers. 

8. John Peter Nay, age 25, October 25, 1728 on the Patience & Margaret. 

*9. John Adam Neu and John Nickel Neu, September 11, 1749 on the 
Priscilla. They settled in Lancaster Co. , Pa. 

10. Otto Daniel Neues on the Brothers. 

11. H. George Ney and Johannes Ney, September 5, 1751 on the Shirley. 

12. Christn Ney, also known as Neues, October 3, 1753 on the Eastern 
Branch . 

13. Peter Neu, also known as Ney, October 1, 1754 on the Phoenix. 

14. Abraham Neu, November 25, 1763 on the Success. 

15. Jacob Neu, October 10, 1768 on the Minerva. 

16. Johannes Nicalaus Neu, October 31, 1771 on the Recovery. 

17. Lewis Noy and John Noy, November 19, 1771 on the Tyger. 

18. Jacob Neu and Stefel Neu, September 18, 1773 on the Brittania. 

19. Jean Bartholmeus Ney, September 30, 1774 on the Union. 

20. George Ludwig Neu, arrived 1834 at New York City from Leistatt, 
Bavaria. He later settled in Pike Co. , Ohio. 

Nowhere in the lists of arrivals does the name Nye, or Nigh ap- 
pear. However, the German pronunciation of Neu has a sound similar to 
the syllable "noy" in annoy; this spelled phonetically quicklj' became Nye, 
Ney, Nigh, Noye, etc. by land recorders, military records, etc. It was 
no doubt simpler for the newcomer, faced with language barriers, to ac- 
cept the new spelling rather than argue them, especially if property titles, 
military benefits, etc. were so listed. Some of the newcomers possibly 
retained the original spelling, some evolved into still other spellings and 
some no doubt perished or did not beget families for other reasons. 

This book describes many families, some whose tie to the cor- 
rect one of the above list can only be surmised. It is not an integrated 
genealogy of a single source as the other Nye Genealogies, Volumes I and 
11: rather it is a collection of separate works by differing genealogists 
whose authorship will be credited in the separate chapters. Thus the style, 
contents and even numbering methods vary from chapter to chapter.

Footnote: 

VALLENTINE NEU, also known as Ney and Neyn, born 1711, settled in 
Tulphehockan Twp. , Berks County, Pa. He left a will in Berks Co. 
naming his wife, Anna Catherine, and the following children: 

George 

Eldest daughter who married Peter Aamin 

Daughter who married George Bress 

Daughter who married Valentine Zerbe 

Daughter who married John Stehr 

Jacob, born 1755

Sylvester. 
George became a land owner in Berks Co. and a saw mill oper- 
ator. Land records show the name often as NEW. Also by 1800 other 
names commonly in records were Sylvester and Dennis in the same town- 
ship. 

Jacob removed to Orange County, Va. after the Revolution in 
which he served. From there he removed to Lincoln County, N. C. : 
next to Clark County, la. where he lived for 10 years, then Washington 
Co. , la. for 21 years, and the last two years he lived in Owen Co. , Ind.

ANDREAS NEY 

la. Andreas Ney, also known as Andtreas Nay, arrived in the Port of 
Philadelphia September 29, 1733. With him were his wife Maria 
Elizabeth, and children Anna Barbara, age 7 and Hans (John) Michel, 
age 3-1/2. They arrived on the ship Pink Mary from Rotterdam, 
Holland by way of Plymouth, England. His origin is listed as the 
Palatinate, a district west of the Rhine in Germany. It is likely that 
in Germany his name was NEU. He settled in Northampton County, 
Pa. Little is known of his subsequent life. The church records which 
might lend proof to our assumptions have not been found, if they even 
exibt. However circumstantial evidence strongly indicates that he had 
more children and that Maria Elizabeth perished and Andreas re- 
married. With the reservation that however strong the evidence, the 
proof is circumstantial, his descendants known and assumed were as 
follows:

of taxes in Northam^pton Co. , Pa, in 1766. He later removed to Sus- 
sex County, N, J. where he owned a plantation. He died there in 1796 
naniing in his will his wife Margaret and children. He was buried in 
the First Presbyterian Cemetery at New Oxford, N. J. , his age being 
given on November 21, 1796 as 68 years, 9 months and no days.

ANDREW NYE 

One of the largest separately identifiable family of Nyes originat- 
ing in Pennsylvania are the descendants of Andrew Nye who established his 
home in Beaver County about 1781. Family tradition is vague about his 
birthplace, only giving that he was born June 6, 1750 and came from "the 
forks of the Delaware". 

In 1938 an excellent genealogy was compiled on this family includ- 
ing the subsidiary families of Deemer, Main, Matheny and smaller families 
stemming from the Andrew Nye line. This work, compiled by Andrew 
Avory Nye II, John A. Nye and Alice Matheny Pappas was never published, 
exists only as a limited number of mimeographed copies distributed through 
the families, A copy of this work, graciously made available by Charles 
W. Nye of Ellwood City, Pa. combined with returns from the 1963-64 
survey by the Nye Family of America Association and considerable in- 
formation on this line found in the files of the L. D. S. Library at Salt Lake 
City, Utah, was the reference material from which the Andrew Nye section 
of this book was compiled. While this book more completely covers the 
Nye descendants of Andrew it makes no pretense of approaching the total 
coverage of Andrew's descendants given by the 1938 manuscript. The only 
known copy of the 1938 work available to searchers is a microfilm copy, 
acquired by the L. D. S. Genealogy Library at Salt Lake City. 

The compilers of the 1938 book assumed, as did most until 
recently, that all Nyes in the United States were related and descended 
from Benjamin and Katherine (Tupper) Nye of Massachusetts. (See 
Volumes I & II), We know now that we have to look elsewhere for the 
ancestry of this family. 

1. ANDREW NYE (Andreas) born June 6, 1750. No records have been ^c^,, 
found of his birth. Church records at Shaunee (then Smithfield), l»Jew York, 
show that Andrew, son of Andries Ney and wife, Selli Roos, was baptised 
November 26, 1752, Sponsors were Cornelius Kuykendal and wife, 
Maritje Westfal. Andreas had died prior to Andrew's baptism, for Sara 
Roos, wife of Andries Nye (on February 2, 1752), married Leur Kuyken- 
dal, widower of Lena Gonzales. They had a child, Abram, baptised 
May 20, 1753. They removed to Washington County, Pennsylvania. There 
Andrew Nye is later shown as executor of the will of Lewis and Selli 
Kuykendal, dated February 18, 1782, probated 1789. 

Family tradition says that he was born at the "forks of the Delaware" 
which would place the birth at approximately Easton, in Northampton 
County, Pa, The only family in this area known to have evolved into the 
Nye name is the family springing from Andreas Nej'. Andrew was known 
to have a half brother Samuel, who migrated to western Pennsylvania 
with him. The names he gave his children have a striking parallel to the 
names of Andrew Neigh, grandson of Andreas Ney; Andrew Neigh accord- 
ing to these assumptions would have been his nephew. The similarity 



of family names, the fact that he was born in the same community in the 
same time frame and the complete absence of other known family sources 
with these identifications lead to the conclusion that he could only have 
been the son of Andreas by a second wife. He is first noted in western 
Pennsylvania during the time of the Revolution when southwestern Penn- 
sylvania was claimed by the state of Virginia. The area of Westmoreland 
county to the south west was called Yogohania County, Va. Andrew is 
referred to in court records of that county in real estate transactions and 
approved as "a proper person as Lieutenant of Militia". This county 
existed in Virginia records only from 1776 to 1786. During this same 
period Pennsylvania also claimed the area so that Andrew is also shown 
paying taxes in Washington County, Pa. in 1781 and later in 1791 in 
Alleghany County when this county was formed from Washington County. 
ANDREW NYE was the first white man, or one of the first to settle 
in the region of Pennsylvania near the bank of the Connoquenessing River. 

Even the given name of his first wife is still uncertain. One record 
calls her "Catherine Burns" while another gives it as "Eleanor" or "Nellie' 
The number of Eleanors among her descendants gives credence to the 
latter supposition. He married (2nd) Rachel McDonald, born November 
10, 1760; died December 16, 1847. Andrew died March 1, 1821. 

Children: 
2. Sarah, born August 31, 1775; died November 29, 1852; married Adam 
Deemer, Jr. , son of Adam Deemer and Dorothy Ketchelman. They lived

JOHAN ADAM NEU 



FIRST GENERATION

FOREWORD 

Four of Henry Nye's great-great-grandchildren have worked 
together to compile the following genealogy. They have re- 
ceived help from well over a hundred other individuals, some 
descendants of Henry and others merely individuals who were 
willing to provide helpful information. 

In addition to listing the descendants of Henry, an attempt 
has been made to trace his ancestry back to Germany, but 
to date we have only uncovered information as far back as 
his grandfather who came to America in 1749. 

The pages on Johan Adam Neu and John Nicholas Neu contain 
fragmentary information which, when put together with in- 
formation from Mrs. Buford Curtis, a professional genealo- 
gist working on the family, and from other Pennsylvania 
Nye's, give a more complete history of the Pennsylvania 
Nye Family. 

The four descendants who compiled this booklet were: 

Ruby Nigh Gilbert, great-granddaughter of Henry's 
son, Samuel. 

Florence Nye Schwartz, great-granddaughter of 
Henry's son, David. 

Ormand Samuel Nye, great-grandson of Henry's 
son, John. 

Charles Richard Nye, great-grandson of Henry's 
son, Nicholas

JOHAN ADAM NEU 

Johan Adam Neu, father of John Nicholas Neu, came to America in 
1749 from Germany aboard the Ship Priscilla. The ship left Europe from 
Rotterdam and stopped at Cowes, England before proceeding to the port of 
Philadelphia, province of Pennsylvania where it landed on Sept. 11, 1749. 
Capt. William Muir was the officer in charge on the "Ship Priscilla". 
There were 293 persons on the ship, including 77 who signed the list. 
The official record for their arrival reads as follows: 

"Monday, Sept. 11, 1749. At the Court House at Philadelphia. 
Present: Joshua Maddox, Esquire. 

The foreigners whose names are underwritten, imported in 
the Priscilla, Capt. Wm. Muir, from Rotterdam, and last from 
Cowes, in England, did this day take the usual oaths to the 
Government. By list 77; Persons 293. " 
Among the names on the list were: 
Johan Nickel Neu 

Johan Adam Neu . . . their names appearing just next 

to each other as here. 
The list did not include the names of children, but John Nicholas 
must have been on the ship with his parents. Also, William, born on 
Aug. 19, 1746 in Germany. There must have been another son, John, on 
the same ship with Johan Adam Neu because mention is made of a son, 
John, later in the will of Johan Adam Neu. 

Seven children of Johan Adam Neu and his wife, Eve Elizabeth, 
were baptized at the "Hill" Church between 1751 and 1766. 

The next official record of Johan Adam Neu is the warrant he took 
out, dated Feb. 10, 1757, for 100 acres of land situated in Derry Town- 
ship, Lancaster Co. , Pa. That was warrant No. 94. The warrant listed 
the name as John Adam New. The survey of that land was made on Feb. 
25, 1757 but the land was not bought by Johan Adam at that time. 

The survey was returned on Oct. 25, 1765 for a larger piece of 
land instead of the 100 acres mentioned on the original warrant. The 
tract was finally patented to John Adam Neighs on Oct. 26, 1765 for 259 
acres and allowance. John Adam paid Forty pounds, five shillings and 
nine pence lawful money for the land plus a Quitrent. The quitrent 
amounted to "one half penny sterling for every acre of the same or value 
thereof in coin Current according as the Exchange shall then be between 
our said Provioce and the City of London. " It was to be paid on the first 
day of March every year at the town of Lancaster, 

John Adam's wife. Eve Elizabeth, must have died because there is 
a record of a marriage of John Adam Neu and Veronica Barbara Koemmet 
performed by Rev. John Casper Stoever. 

In the History of Dauphin and Lebanon County published by William 
Egle, John Adam Ney of Derry Township is listed as having died in Feb. , 
1783, leaving a wife, Veronica Barbara and 8 children. At the Lancaster 



45 



County Courthouse the will of John Adam Neu also lists a wife, Veronica 
Barbara and the same 8 children. 

The will was written on Dec. 14, 1782. In the County record book 
at Lancaster, the date under which the registrar's name appears is March 
26, 1783. 

Children: 

John Must have been born in Germany. Dates unknown. 

*John Nicholas Neu - Born June 6, 1742 in Germany. Died Nov. 4, 1800. 
William Neu - Born August 19, 1746 in Germany, Died January 1805.

were Nicholas Wederts and wife Mary Elizabeth; also Elizabeth 

Catherine Stroeher. 
Frederic - Born February 9, 1753. No date given for the baptism but the 

sponsors were Christopher Wegman and Margaret Neu. The 

sponsors were to have been Matthias Bohr and wife, but on 

account of high water the others acted in their stead. 
Mary Christina - Born October 27, 1759. Baptized October 28, 1759. 

Sponsors were Matthias Bohr and wife. 
Anna Margaret - Born April 11, 1761. Baptized April 12, 1761. 

Sponsors were Michael Malfir (Maulfair) and his wife. 
*John Peter - Born September 29, 1762. Baptized Oct. 10, 1762. 

Sponsors were John Peter Feltin and wife Mary Catharine. 
John Michael - Born in 1764. Baptized November 11, 1764, No 

sponsors given. 
John Henry - Born July, 1766. Baptized July 2, 1766. Sponsors were 

Henry Firnsler and wife Juliana. 

All of the above children except Mary Christina and Anna Margaret are 
listed in John Adam Neu's will.

will and testament, in the 
presence of us, 

48 



JOHN NICKEL NEU, brother of John Adam Neu, also was evidently in this 
area for a while as several of his children are listed in the church record 
for the church at Quitapohila in what is now Lebaonon Co, , Pa. Among 
whom was Michael Neu born Oct, 4, 1744 in Ellenich, Magistracy of 
Traeback, at the Moselle, Germany. Other children of John Nicholas 
Neu listed in the church records were John Philip born Oct. 3, 1750 and 
John Peter born July 1753. It is interesting to note that sponsors for him 
were Peter Feltin and wife who was Maria Catherine Neu who might 
possibly have been the sister of John Adam and John Nicholas Neu since 
Johanna Peter Velten (Fehlten) came to Pennsylvania with Johann Nichel 
Neu and is listed in the deposition with him and his trade given as 
cobbler. Also listed in the Annotations to Strassburger etc. was John 
Michel Neu, linen weaver, son of Phillip Neu. This John Michel is said 
to have died soon after arriving in America. But since the Neu's in this 
area seem to be related it is possible that this John Michel is possibly 
kin to the other Neu's in this area as John Nicholas had a son named 
John Philip. 

Also mentioned in the same records of the Archives at Speyer is a 
Geo. Neu, inhabitant and Citizen of Breifurt (d 18 July 1756) and his 
wife Christina Margaret Gentess who had the following children who came 
to America. 

Joseph Neu "who about 18 years ago migrated to America and is 

about 40 years old. " (b, ca. 1718) 
and 

Peter Neu who also "some five years ago removed to America and 

is about 30 years old" (Deposition taken Feb. 8, 1758) (B. ca. 1728) 

In the Strassburger & Hinke lists of German Pioneers Joseph Neig 
came in 1740 on the Ship Samuel (note date coincides with time he is 
credited with leaving Germany in the deposition and Peter Neu came in 
1754 on the Ship Phoenix. 

To further support that these seemly different Neu families are 
more closely related than at present meet the eye is indicated in the 
"Hill Church Records" where the marriage of Joseph Neu and Anna Eva 
Luct of Moden Creek, (Krich) is listed Jan. 30, 1749. Also listed in 
these church records was Johann Peter Felten and Maria Catharina 
Nue Feb. 5, 1751. 

In the records of Rev. John Waldschmidt of Cocalico, Moden Krich, 
Wei sseichen Land, Seltenreich and Gemeinde, Lancaster Co. , Pa. is 

recorded the birth of Anna Maria Neu daughter of Josef & wife b. 

baptised Nove. 21, 1749. These same church records show that she 
died Jan. 17, 1769 and noted else where is the record of Johannes 
Schwartz, son of Daniel and Anna Marie b. Jan. 11, 1769 bap. Jan. 17, 
1769. Mother was only daughter of Josef Neu, she died Jan. 16, 1769. 

The marriage record of Peter Nau and Anna, widow of Zacharias 
Rast is recorded on Sept. 24, 1783. Whether this is the Peter Nal who 



49 



served in the Revolutionary War from Pennsylvania has not at this time 
been determined although his wife is listed as Anna Maria. 

Also listed in the Annotations was a John Michel Neu, son of Phillip 
who might possibly be the Johannes Neu who came in 1748 on the Ship Two 
Brothers and is said to have died soon after his arrival. 



SECOND GENERATION 

JOHN NICHOLAS NEU (John A. ) was born on June 6, 1742 in Germany. 
He emigrated to America with his parents in his 8th year. He was con- 
firmed in 1770. On March 26, 1771 John Nicholas Neu and Eva Catharine 
Ridisiehl (Rudlsil) were married by the Rev. John Casper Stoever. Their 
marriage is recorded in the records of two of the churches Rev. Stoever 
served: "The Evangelical Lutheran Congregation at the Quitapohila in 
Lebanon Township" (called the "Hill" church) founded in 1743 and in the 
records of the "Bindnagle Evangelical Lutheran Church" near Palmyra, 
along the Swatara Creek, founded in 1745. 

The church record concerning John Nicholas Neu states that he 
lived with Eva Catharine for 30 years. It goes on to say that they were 
blessed with 6 sons and 6 daughters of whom 9 were living in Nov. , 1800 
at the time of Nicholas' death. 

In the record of deaths at the Bingnagle Lutheran Church the fol- 
lowing notation is made about John Nicholas Neu: "he was sickly a long 
time and a fortnight before his death he had an attack of pleurisy and 
coughing. " The record gave his age at that time of his death at 58 years, 
5 mos. less 2 days or (58 yrs. , 4 mos. 28 days). This would mean he 
died on Nov, 4, 1800. 

The records of deeds in the Dauphin County Courthouse do not men- 
tion Nicholas. There is no will in the Dauphin County Court House for 
Nicholas, but there is a record of his son acting as administrator of his 
letters and papers. The record is listed as "Nicholas Neigh" whose son, 
John Neigh, was made administrator of his letters on Feb. 23, 1801. At 
that time 150 pounds was posted as bond by John Neigh, 

In the Orphans Court Records for Dauphin County there is a refer- 
ence in 1807 concerning the account of Nicholas Ney. John Ney was 
listed as administrator for Nicholas Ney and the following statment of 
account was made: "Balance of 27 pounds, 3 shillings & 11 pence in the 
hands of the accountant which account the court confirm and do order that 
the said balance be distributed according to law. " 

No record was found for the death of Eva Catharine (Rudisil) Neu. 
No headstones are to be found at the "Hill" Church or the "Bindnagle" 
Church for either John Nicholas or Eva Catharine. 

The records at the Bindnagle Church show the baptism of ten of 
Nicholas' children.

THIRD GENERATION 



HENRY NYE 



HENRY NYE, son of John Nicholas Neu and Eva Catharine (Rudisil) Neu, 
was born on Dec, 18, 1785. He was baptized on Feb. 1, 1786 at the 
Bindnagle Evangelical Lutheran Church near Palmyra, Pa. The sponsors 
at his baptism were John Schnock and wife. 

He married Elizabeth and their son, Samuel, was born on 

Nov. 10 or 11, 1809. Samuel was baptized at the Bindnagle Church on 
Mar. 3, 1810 with Jacob Stroh and wife serving as sponsors. 

The next record we have of Henry is his inclusion in the Census of 
1820 in Franklin County, Pa. At that time the census stated that living in 
Henry's household were 2 males under 10, one male 10 but under 16 and 
one male 26 but under 45; and 2 females under 10, one female 10 but under 
16 and one female 26 but under 45. The 2 boys under 10 would have been 
David, born in 1813 and John, born in 1818. The boy over 10 but under 
16 was Samuel, born in 1809. The 2 girls under 10 were Sarah, born in 
1811 and Catharine, born in 1817. However, there is no record of the 
female who was over 10 but under 16, She could have been born before 
1809 and been baptized at Bindnagle also, but the church records for 
1799 to 1809 are missing. 

The first record of Henry's attendance at the Salem Lutheran Church, 
Pleasant Hall, Franklin Co, , Pa, (church founded around 1790) was on 
Aug. 26, 1827 when he took communion there. The next reference at the 
church shows that on July 27, 1828 both Henry and Elizabeth took com- 
munion there. In the records of Salem Lutheran Church, Henry's name 
is variously spelled as Ney, New, Neu, Nei and Nigh, 

On March 7, 1829 four of Henry and Elizabeth's children were 
baptized in Salem Lutheran Church: Sarah, Catharine, John and Adam. 
Nicholas was baptized there on Sept. 5, 1830. No record was found 
anywhere for the baptism of their son, David, born in 1813. 

The communion records at Salem Lutheran Church for both Henry 
and Elizabeth continue until Sept. 12, 1841. After that date there is no 
record of Elizabeth taking communion. May 8, 1847 is the last date 
recorded in the communion records for Henry. 

Henry's name appears in the census records of 1850 for Franklin Co. , 
Pa. as being 65 years of age. It appears again in the 1860 census 
records for the same county. His name is not in the census records of 
1870. Elizabeth's name does not appear in the 1850 census records. 
In both the 1850 and 1860 census, there were only 2 other members of 
Henry's household listed: his son, Adam, and Adam's wife, Nancy 
Foust Nye. 

Henry was a farmer, working about 50 acres of land in Letterkenny 
Township, Franklin Co, , Pa. He was also a weaver. He built a log 
house which still stands on a hill between present-day Nyesville and 
Muddy Run, a creek which empties into the Rowe Rim and thence into 



53 



the Conodoguinet Creek. 

No will or deed containing the name of this Henry Nye is to be found in 
the Franklin County records, the Cumberland County records or the Dauphin 

County records. 

Henry and Elizabeth are known to be buried in the cemetery at Salem 
Lutheran Church, Pleasant Hall, Pa. , but the headstones are gone. 

The church records at that church do not list any deaths in the early 
record book covering the years from the church's beginning up to 1877. 

Children: 

* 2. Samuel Nigh, 1809-1891 (He used the Nigh spelling as do all his 
descendants right down to the present day. ) 
3. Sarah, born Sept. 7, 1811. She was baptized at Salem Lutheran 
Church, Pleasant Hall, Pa. on Mar. 7, 1829 along with 2 brothers 
and 1 sister. She was her own sponsor at the baptism. Sarah was 
the second wife of Jacob Sclichter, being married on May 12, 1843, 
Mr. Sclichter had 9 children to his first wife, Sarah and Jacob 
had 7 or 8 children, 6 of whom are known by name. Sarah died 
Nov. 28, 1869, Jacob died Nov. 14, 1883 at 82 years of age. 
They are both buried in a Sclichter Family plot which is located 
inside the grounds of the Letterkenny Ordnance Depot near 
Chamber sburg, Pa, The plot is in the ammunition section of the 
Depot, located along Connecticutt Ave.

SECOND GENERATION 

JOHN PETER NEU (John Adam) was born September 29, 1762 and baptised 
at the Quitapohila Church on October 10, 1762, Sponsors were John Peter 
Feltin and wife Mary Catherine (Neu). It would seem that the John Peter 
in both the John Adam and John Nicholas families were each named for 
this John Peter Feltin as he and his wife acted as sponsors for each of the 
children at their baptism. The assumption that this John Peter is the son 
of John Adam Neu and not the John Peter who was born in 1753, the son of 
John Nicholas Neu is based entirely on the names given to the children of 
he and his wife Rebecca. Children: 
* John, born Jan. 27, 1785,

GEORG LUDWIG NEU 
Compiled by: Mrs. Mildred L. Carr Nye 

In offering this compilation for publication, the author wishes it 
understood that it is the work of a strictly amateur genealogist, and is her 
first attempt at compiling family history. 

Since marrying into the Nye family over thirty-three years ago, she 
has been interested in recording data on the immediate families — descen- 
dants of her husband's grandfather. Only seven years ago did she commence 
the task of gathering data for the two other main branches of this genealogi- 
cal record. The only name she had in her files at that time on which to 
build this part of the record was that of Rev. William A. Nye, the man who 
had reared her husband's orphaned grandfather. With that name, and an 
innate curiosity for genealogical matters, this compilation was begun. 

There have been many pleasures in the task, wliich the compiler 
considers her number-one hobby, the most enjoyable phase being the op- 
portunity of making the acquaintance of so many of the distant "cousins", 
especially the elderly ones. 

That the time for publication has arrived before the mystery of the 
"missing link" could be solved is the principal regret. Even as this 
material is submitted, the search for that name is continuing. 

The finding of that name is her hope for the immediate future. Her 
desire for the far-distant future is that a great-great granddaughter, who 
she feels certain will inherit her curiosity for genealogical matters, will 
some day discover this record on a dark and dusty shelf, and will enthu- 
siastically exclaim, "Well, bless Granny!"

Explajiatory Notes 

In this genealogical record, a system of numbering has been adopted 
whereby any descendant can be immediately traced to the common pro- 
genitor, Georg Ludwig Neu, I. 

Each child in each family is assigned a number according to the order 
of his birth in that family; e, g. , 1.6 means the sixth child of the first an- 
cestory; 1. 6, 4 means the fourth child of the sixth child of ;the first ances- 
tor, etc. 

Adopted children, or children of adopted children are likewise as- 
signed a number, but this number appears in parentheses; both in the text 
and in the index of the direct descendants. 

Persons who have married into the family (in-laws) are assigned the 
same number as the spouse; likewise step-children are assigned the same 
number as the parents. These latter two groups are listed together in a 
separate index. 

Women who have married into the family are indexed by their maiden 
name. If a woman has been previously married, her maiden name is used, 
if known, both in the text and in the index. If her maiden name is not known, 
her previous married name is used in the index, followed by "Mrs. " in 
parenthesis. Her previous marriage is usually referred to in the text if 
that information is available. 

If the first name of a person is in parentheses, this indicates that 
name was not, or is not, commonly used by that person. If a name other 
than the first appears in parentheses, that name is usually a shortened 
form or the name by which that person is more commonly known. 

Information on any person listed in the index of direct descendants 
may be located in the text by using his assigned nvmiber. First, disre- 
gard the final digit and refer to the remaining number in that correspond- 
ing generation (three remaining digits , Third Generation; five remaining 
digits, Fifth Generation, etc.) where that person's name will be found 
listed in his parents ' family. 

If an asterisk appears before his name as here listed, this indicates 
that he himself was or is a parent, in which case liis own biography is 
given in the following generation under his own complete number, and 
where also his own child or children are listed. 

The biography of a person who has never married, or who has 
married but does not have children, is given in the same generation with 
his parents. 

Information on any person listed in the index of other names (in- 
laws) may be found by referring to his assigned number in that corres- 
ponding generation (six digits. Sixth Generation, etc.) where such infor- 
mation is included with the marriage information of his spouse.

FIRST GENERATION 

(GEORG) LUDWIG NEU, 1 

Born 1766 or 1767, probably in Germany, He was 57 years old at the 
time of the birth of his son, Anselm Neu (1. 7) on May 25, 1824; and at that 
time he was residing in "the Community and Mayorality of Leistadt, of the 
province of Durkheim, provincial Commissariat of Neustadt in the Royal 
Bavarian Rhine District" according to an abstract from the birth registers 
of the community of Leistadt concerning the birth record of his son, 
Anselm Neu, In later years one of his granddaughters, (Emma Susan Nye 
1. 7. 9) who was an Iowa schoolteacher, took a trip to Europe and located 
his former home. It was a stone house built in the wall around the village. 
A great-granddaughter (Fannie Nye, 1. 7. 1. 4) also visited this area in 
1928, but due to a severe rain storm, she did not go to Leistadt, 

According to most sources of information, he immigrated to the 
United States with his wife and at least two of his children, Elizabeth (1. 6) 
and Anselm, in the early 1830's, landed at New York, and traveled to 
Waverly, Pike Co. , Ohio. The obituaries of his wife and of his two known 
children, the family Bible of his son, Anselm (William A. Nye) and pub- 
lished biographical records of his children disagree as to the exact year 
of immigration (from 1833 to 1835), One descendant believed he arrived 
in 1831. 

Concerning his emigration from Germany one great-grandson 
stated: "Georg Ludwig Neu, who lived in Bavaria, with his family became 
a part of a group of political refugees. They traveled, in 1834, via 
vehicles drawn by oxen, to Brest, France. Here they sold their equip- 
ment and livestock to help pay their passage to the United States. They 
settled in Chillicothe, Ross Co. , Ohio. " 

Another great-grandson believed that the emigration occurred for 
a different reason. He believed that Anselm' s father was the younger son 
of a well-to-do Bavarian gentleman, upper middle class or lesser nobility; 
and that, like most Bavarians, the family was of the Catholic faith. This 
descendant further believed that the younger son broke with this religion 
and that this, in turn, resulted in his break with the family, and in his 
leaving home, going first to England where he married an English woman 
and became the father of four or five young sons before sailing to America. 

He died Oct. 8, 1834, at Waverly, Pike Co. , Ohio, according to the 
published biographies of his children. However, there are several con- 
flicting beliefs among his descendants concerning the time, place, and 
circumstances of his death. His burial place is unknown. No death re- 
cord or obituary has been located. 

The obituary of his wife did not mention the death of her husband. 
The information given in the obituary of his daughter, Elizabeth, was that 
her father had lived only one week after their arrival at Waverly, Ohio; 
and his son Anselm' s obituary agreed that Georg Ludwig had died shortly 
after their arrival in Ohio. 

133 



Despite the information in these obituaries and in the published bio- 
graphies, several of his great-grandsons who have been contacted have 
had widely different opinions concerning the death of their ancestor. 
The opinion of one was that Georg Ludwig Neu was robbed and 
killed shortly after his arrival in New York, and that after his death the 
older sons of the family obtained work and remained in the East while the 
mother brought the two younger children, Elizabeth and Anselm, to "Ohio. 
He believed that this was the manner in which the family became separated 

Another great-grandson firmly believed that this great-grandfather 
died enroute to the United States, that he was buried at sea, and that only 
the widow, with Anselm and several younger brothers arrived in New York 
This descendant's version of the family's separation was that the widow, 
being practically destitute, "farmed out" the younger children into homes 
where they were offered care, and that she brought only Anselm to Ohio, 
her first destination being Marietta, Ohio. 

Still another great-grandson made the definite statement that "Georg 
Ludwig died a few years after coming to the United States". 

Marriage: Date and place unknown. To Anne Marie (Mary) Habig, 
born September 4, 1782, in Germany. She was known as "Mary Nye" in 
this country. She resided in Ohio after the death of her husband, migrat- 
ing later to Iowa, probably at the time of her children's migration with a 
caravan of pioneers (1844-45) and settling at Chillicothe in Wapsllo County. 
She was residing in the home of her son, William Anselm Nye (1. 7) at the 
time of the 1850 Federal Census and the 1856 State Census of that county. 
She spoke only German, and was a member of the German Reform Church. 
She died October 10, 1871, in Cass Township, Wapello Co. , Iowa. Interred 
at Chillicothe under the name "Mary Nye". Her obituary is headed, "Mrs. 
Anna M. Nye". 

(That so many varying opinions could develop within so few genera- 
tions of time is not only interesting but also frightfully indicative of how 
soon the facts concerning present generations may become distorted un- 
less family records are carefully preserved. ) 

Children: 
1. 1 A daughter who married and stayed in Germany (?). Name unknown. 
Only one descendant of Georg Ludwig Neu has mentioned the existenc 
of this daughter. Nothing further known about her. 
1. 2) Names and number unknown. Several great-grandsons of Georg 
1. 3) Ludwig Neu believed that there were several boys in this family who 
1. 4) were in some way separated from the rest of the family. One 

grandson of William A. (Anselm) Nye made this statement: "This 
is factual and certain: Grandfather Nye never gave up search for 
his lost brothers and never located any of them . . . this search 
became an obsession with him in his later years. He spent a great 
deal of time and money in tracking down fruitless clubs. " 
(These numbers; 1. 2, 1. 3 and 1.4, are unassigned to allow for addi- 
tions to this record should any of these "lost brothers" be located. ) 



134 



1.5 A son who was the father of Henry Nye. Name unknown. 
("Missing Link") Born probably in Germany, prior to 1824. 

1.6 Elizabeth E. Neu (Nye). Born July 17, 1821, in Leistadt, 
(spelled "Leischtot" in her obituary), Bavaria, Germany. 

1. 7 Anselm Neu (William Anselm Nye). Born May 25, 1824, in 
Leistadt, Bavaria, Germany. 



SECOND GENERATION 

THE FATHER OF HENRY NYE, 1. 5 

Name unknown, ("Missing Link"). Born probably in Germany, prior 
to 1824. One great-grandson of Georg Ludwig Neu stated that Georg Lud- 
wig Neu and his wife "brought three children with them to the United States: 
The father of Henry, Elizabeth and Anselm. " Brief searches in the "Pas- 
senger Lists of Immigrants Arriving at New York" in the National Archives 
have failed to disclose further information. No legal records or anything 
in print has been located to identify the father of Henry Nye. However, 
much evidence exists to indicate that, whatever his name, he was probably 
a son of Georg Ludwig Neu. So far as is known he was the father of only 
the one son, Henry, who was born Januarj' 3, 1844, at Waverly, Pike Co. , 
Ohio, according to Henry's obituary and gravestone data. 

In a newspaper account of Henry Nye's death (obituary) this statement 
was made: "Mr. Nye's parents (not named) moved to Chillicoth (Iowa) when 
he was an infant, and when but a lad of five years he was left an orphan. " 
This fixes the date of death of Henry's father between 1844 and 1849, and 
the probable place as Wapello County, Iowa. 

Marriage: Date and place unknown, probably in Pike or Ross Coonty, 
Ohio. Wife's name unknown. Her death probably occurred in Wapello Co. , 
Iowa, between 1844 and 1849. 

(It is interesting to note at this point that, in addition to the marriage 
of William A. Nye and Rebecca Wicker, there are recorded in "Pike County 
Ohio, Court Records of Marriage"; D. A. R. , 1952; the following two mar- 
riages which occurred there early enough that either couple could possibly 
have been the parents of Henry Nye: (1) George Nye and Lucinda Warren, 
married April 5, 1838; and (2) George Nye and Louisa Allen, married 
January 2, 1840. It should also be noted that neither of these marriages 
appears in the 1907 Nye genealogy book. This fact, however, does not 
prove that either of these two Nyes were of Georg Ludwig's family nor that 
either was the father of Henry Nye. ) 

Child: 
* 1.5.1 Henry Nye, born January 3, 1844, at Waverly, Pike Co. , 

Ohio. 

1.6 ELIZABETH E. NEU (NYE), born July 17, 1821, in Leistadt, Bavaria, 
Germany. She was confirmed in the Lutheran Church at the age of 13, and 

135 



at about that same age she came with her parents to America and settled 
at Waverly, Pike Co. , Ohio. After her marriage she and her husband 
farmed in Pike County until they moved to Wapello County, Iowa, in 1844- 
45, members of a caravan of pioneers. (For more details of this immi- 
gration to America and the migration to Iowa, see the biography of her 
brother, Anselm Neu (William Anselm Nye, 1. 7)). 

She died January 4, 1900 in Wapello Co. , Iowa, interred at 
Chillicothe. 

Marriage: September 21, 1837, in Ross County, Ohio, to Tillman 
Warren, the son of John Warren, Jr. He was born about 1810 in Ohio. 
He was the first mail carrier between Ottumwa and Chillicothe, Iowa, and 
rode horseback to make the deliveries. He died March 10, 1855, in 
Wapello Co. , Iowa. Interred at Chillicothe. 
Children: 

Mary Jane Warren, born about 1838 in Pike County, Ohio. 
Died in infancy. 
1. 6. 2 Richard Tilton Warren, born about 1840 in Pike County, Ohio. 
He was brought to Wapello Co. , Iowa, with his parents 
when a child. He enlisted in the 36th Iowa Infantry on August 
9, 1862, and was mustered into service September 6, 1862. 
He died August 2, 1863, at Helena, Arkansas. Interred in 
Mississippi River National Cemetery at Memphis, Tennessee. 
He was never married. (In the summer of 1962, just 100 
years after his enlistment, his niece, Florence Warren- 
Waddington (1. 6. 5. 2) visited his grave. She is believed to be 
the only one of his relatives ever to have done so. ) 

* 1. 6. 3 Rhoda Warren, born about 1842, in Pike Co. , Ohio. 

* 1. 6. 4 William Warren, born about 1844, in Pike Co. , Ohio. 

* 1.6.5 John Adam Warren, born September 29 , 1847, in Wapello 

Co. , Iowa. 

* 1. 6. 6 Silas Warren, born February 2, 1850, in Wapello Co. , Iowa. 

* 1. 6. 7 Catherine Warren, born June 21, 1852, in Wapello Co. , 

Iowa. 

* 1. 6. 8 George L. Warren, born January 5, 1855, in Wapello Co. , 

Iowa. 

1. 7 ANSELM NEU (REV. WILLIAM ANSELM NYE), born May 25, 1824, 
in Leistadt, Bavaria, Germany. Sources of information disagree as to the 
exact date he came to America with his parents, but it was in the early 
1830's. 

It is not known when the family changed the name from Neu to Nye, 
or by what method this was done, although it is believed they made the 
change shortly after coming to the United States, and that at that time 
Anselm had the name 'William" prefixed to his name. 

The following information is from a published biography of his life 
(Portrait and Biographical Album, Wapello County, Iowa. Chapman.

p, 437): ". , . In the spring of 1830 he commenced attendance in the school 
of his native town, where he continued the following four years, and then 
his father sold his property at a great sacrifice in order (as he said) to 
emigrate with his children to a free country. They embarked in July, 
1834, and after a voyage of 37 days landed in New York City where, after 
a few days, they resumed their journey westward, and located in Waverly, 
Pike Co, , Ohio. After a few days the father was seized with a fatal illness 
and died on the 8th of October, 1834. After this misfortune the family re- 
moved to a farm near Waverly where W. A. Nye attended school and began 
to learn the English language. " 

His obituary gives much the same story and continues: "He remained 
on the farm and attended school three months in the winter until he was 
eighteen years of age. ... On the third of October, 1844, he was mar- 
ried to Miss Rebecca Wicker and five days later they left Ohio to seek a 
home and fortune in the far west. After stopping a few months in Knox 
Co'onty, Illinois, they came to Wapello County, Iowa, arriving here on the 
first day of March, 1845. " 

Concerning this migration to Iowa, one of his grandsons later wrote: 
"About ten years after settling in Ohio, the group leanred of "the New 
Purchase" of land in what is now Iowa, from the Sac and Fox Indians, and 
of its being opened to settlers, May 1, 1843. A caravan of them came to 
Iowa during the autumn and winter of 1844-45. They were told of some 
desirable land on the south side of the Des Moines River, that had not been 
homesteaded because of the difficulties of crossing the river. However, 
they located a place where an approach to the river could be made. Thej^ 
used it and crossed the river on ice with their ox-drawn prairie schooners. 
They entered the new area on the south side of the river in February, 
1845, and named the place, Chillicothe, after their former home in Ohio. " 

The first Sunday School in Wapello County was organized near 
Chillicothe in June, 1845, in a log cabin home of William Anselm Nye, 
who was a Methodist circuit rider and rode horseback over the state to 
spread the Gospel. He was the superintendent of that Sunday School. 

In 1890, a biog-raphy of his son, William A. Nye, Jr. (1.7.3) of 
Washington County, Kansas, was published, within which was this short 
sketch concerning "The father of the subject, W. A. Nye" (Portrait and 
Biographical Album of Washington, Clay and Riley Counties, Kansas. 
Chapman, pp. 1068-1069): "W. A. Nye is a resident of Wapello County, 
Iowa, and is one of the oldest living pioneers of that state. He has a farm 
of near 300 acres near Chillicothe, where he is engaged in farming and 
breeding fine stock. He is of German descent and has resided in Iowa 
since 1843. The estate which he now owns was entered by him prior to the 
admission of Iowa as a state. Before the war, he was engaged in a general 
merchandise trade in Chillicothe and continued in that business for several 
years. He has held a number of township offices and was treasurer of 
Wapello County from 1881 to 1885. He is of Republican politics and has 
been a delegate to countjs state and congressional conventions. "

THIRD GENERATION 

1. 5. 1 HENRY NYE, born January 3, 1844, at Waverly, Pike Co. , Ohio, 
his parents' names unknown. A newspaper account of his death (obituary) 
contained this additional information: "... Mr. Nye's parents moved to 
Chillicothe (Iowa), when he was an infant, and when but a lad of five years 
he was left an orphan. " 

It is known that Henry Nye lived a part of his early life at Chilli- 
cothe in the home of Rev. William A, Nye (1. 7) believed to have been his 
uncle. He is listed in that household in both the 1850 Federal Census of 
Wapello County and in the 1856 State Census of that county. William A. 
Nye's widowed mother, Mary, was also listed in that home at those times. 
In both records her name appeared below the names of the children of 
William A, Nye, and Henry's name appeared below her name. 

According to the newspaper article referred to above, Henry re- 
turned to Ohio at the age of fifteen years and made his home with an uncle 
until August, 1861, when he enlisted in the 33rd Ohio Company D Infantry. 

His grandson, Victor A. Nye (1. 5. 1. 1. 6) recalls listening when a 
child to his grandfather's tales of his experiences during the Civil War. 
Published records of the movements and battles of the 33rd Ohio unit 
verify his grandfather's reports, the highlight of them all being his claim 
to having personally witnessed the surrender of Lee to Grant, and to hav- 
ing participated in Sherman's famous march to the sea and in the Grand 
Review at Washington, D. C. (The writer of tliis biography, who is the 
wife of Victor A. Nye, laments the fact that Grandfather Nye, by his 
marching to the sea with Sherman, shares with him the guilt of having 
burned the courthouse at Canton, Cherokee Co. , Georgia, thereby des- 
troying the legal records pertaining to all four of her grandparents and 
several of her great-grandparents ! Incidentally, three of her great- 
grandfathers fought with the Confederates, one of them serving with a 
company known as the "Cherokee Lincoln Killers", and another one serv- 
ing with the "Cherokee Revengers". ) 

After the Civil War, Henry returned to Chillicothe, Iowa, where 
he married shortly afterwards, the Rev. William A. Nye officiating at the 
service. He then resided near Chillicothe where all of his five children 
were born during the years 1867 to 1877 inclusive. 

He brought his family to Thomas County, Kansas, by covered 
wagon in 1886 and settled near Oakley. During this trip to Western Kansas

the family camped in Washington County, Kansas, near Morrowville, where 
the younger William A- Nye, Jr. (1. 7.3) was then residing with his family. 
This younger William A. Nye had a son Hugh B. Nye (1. 7. 3, 2) who was 
about six years of age at that time. In late 1957, Hugh B. Nye (then about 
77) could still recall the details of this family's camping near his father's 
home, even though there seemed to have been no contacts between the two 
families during the intervening years. He remembered the names of 
several members of the family. 

Henry Nye lived in Thomas County, near Oakley, most of the re- 
maining years of Ms life. After the death of his wife in 1922 he lived with 
his son, Charley W. Nye (1. 5. 1, 1) near Oakley, and then with his daughter. 
Myrtle Alice Nye-Hildebraddt (1.5, 1.4) at Saline, Kansas, Saline County. 
He died May 28, 1928, at Salina, Kansas. Interred at Oakley, Kansas. 

Marriage: December 31, 1865 at Chillicothe, Iowa, to Rhoda 
Catherine Warren, born October 12, 1850. at Lafayette, Indiana, the 
daughter of Ambrose Warren and Mary Ann Hockman. She was a niece of 
Tillman Warren, husband of Elizabeth E. Nye (1. 6). Because of this re- 
lationship, the descendants of Elizabeth E. Nye are doubly related to the 
descendants of Henry Nye. She died January 14, 1922, at Oakley, Kansas. 
Interred at Oakley. 

Children: 

* 1.5,1,1 Charley William Nye, born February 10, 1867, near 

Chillicothe, Wapello Co. , Iowa. 

* 1,5,1.2 (Richard) Tilton Nye, born February 22, 1869, near 

Chillicothe. 

* 1.5.1.3 (Thomas) Clayton Nye, born May 4, 1871, near 

Chillicothe, 

* 1,5, 1,4 Myrtle Alice Nye, born November 11, 1874 near 

Chillicothe, 

* 1.5.1.5 Cora Jane Nye, born March 23, 1877, near Chillicothe, 
Interesting quotations taken from letters received from the distant 

"cousins" concerning their knowledge of Henry Nye: 

A grandson of Rev. William A. Nye: "When a lad, I recall hearing 
my father and Ms brothers talking of Henry Nye living in their home at 
Chillicothe . , . As we understood it, Henry Nye's father was an older 
brother of our grandfather, William Anselm Nye". 

A granddaughter of Elizabeth Nye-Warren: "I know Henry Nye was 
raised by Uncle William Nye. " 

Another granddaughter of Elizabeth Nye-Warren: "I too tMnk 
Henry was a nephew of Uncle William Nye". 

A daughter-in-law of Rhoda Warren-Clark: "I do remember Mother 
Clark speaking of Henry Nye as her cousin. " 

Another grandson of Rev. William A. Nye: "Your statement about 
Henry Nye was a big surprise to me, for I never heard of Mm. If he was 
reared by my grandfather he must have been much older than Grand- 
father's family by his first wife and lived in some other part of the country. ' 



141 



Another grandson of Rev. William A. Nye: "I don't recall anything 
about Henry Nye. It does seem to me there is a vague recollection of hav- 
ing heard the name but I can't identify him in any way. " 

Another grandson of Rev. William A. Nye: "While I realize that I 
have been unable to help establish the name of Henry's father, I am grate- 
ful to you for having 'prodded' me into putting together for the first time 
much that I am sending to you. 

'In our younger days, if we ever give a thought to matters of family 
history, I believe that we rely on the older folks to preserve the records. 
Then, as we become the older generation, we find too late that records 
have been lost. 

"I feel sure that somewhere in a family Bible our history has been 
recorded. "

1886 when his father homesteaded northeast of Oakley in Thomas County.

spring of 1887. 

After his marriage in 1889 he and his wife lived in the same 
neighborhood as his parents until late in 1890 when they moved to Elgin, 
Oregon. In 1893 they returned to Kansas in a covered wagon, a trip which 
took from June until mid-September. He bought a half section of school 
land seven and a half miles northeast of Oakley. Here they built a sod 
house with dirt floor in which they lived until they could build a frame 
house. They remained on this farm until September, 1942, when they 
retired and moved into Oakley. 

In April, 1949, they celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary, 
on which occasion a long-time neighbor wrote the following tribute: "Hav- 
ing known this fine couple for more than fifty years, added a sentimental 
value to the occasion for us. Pioneers like these paved the way for the 
rest of us and we feel that Mr. and Mrs. Nye are especially deserving. 
The time was when there wasn't much money in evidence but the bond of 
friendship among the old settlers was ever strong and it did not take an 
organization to push it either. Homestead days were happy days. Some- 
one asked them if they were happy, to which they answered 'yes' so 
quickly that we thought it was a great testimony after sixty years together. " 

They lived to see one more anniversary, and then he died Septem- 
ber 3, 1950, at his home in Oakley. Interred in the Oakley Cemetery.

In September 1957, at the age of 80 years, she made her first 
trip back to Iowa since leaving there as a child. Her greatest disappoint- 
ment of this return visit was finding the Des Moines River at Chillicothe 
"just a puddle" as compared to its size as she had always remembered it 
when her family "ferried" across it ;to reach the town. 

(Although the native residents conceeded that the river is perhaps 
less voluminous nowadays, her nephew and wife, Victor Nye (1. 5. 1. 1. 6), 
in whose company she made the visit to the scenes of her childhood, have 
since wondered if perhaps that apparent shrinkage in size of the Des 
Moines River may not be attributable to the difference in the imate of 
things as seen through the eyes of an eight-year-old in comparison with 
those seen by an octogenarian!)

1. 6. 5. 2 FLORENCE MIRIAM WARREN, born June 12, 1879, in Columbia 
Township, Wapello Co. , Iowa. Whea she was four years old her parents 
moved to Polk Township and she resided there until her marriage. She at- 
tended White Oak and Conwell schools in that county, and college in Des 
Moines. 

After her marriage she and her husband farmed until 1953. Fol- 
lowing his death she was operator of the Munterville switchboard for three 
years. She resided at Chillicothe for several years and moved to Bloom- 
field, Davis Co. , Iowa, in June, 1964, where she now makes her home. 

A note of interest at this point concerns the chance acquaintance 
of the subject of this biography and her biographer, which began in the 
Chillicothe cemetery in Wapello County with the presence there of only the 
one party, the writer. 

In September, 1957, on her first visit to this little cemetery, she 
copied gravestone inscriptions from all "Warren" stones, as well as from 
"Nye" stone, because of the fact that her husband's paternal grandmother's 
maiden name was "Warren" (1. 51. ) — not knowing at that time that the 
Warren family was connected in any other way with the Nye family. 

Among the inscriptions copied was that from the grave of James 
Adam Waddington whose wife was Florence Warren- Waddington (above), 
still living, but whose name and birthdate appear on the stone with her 
husband's. 

Upon arriving back in Western Kansas, these notes were laid 
away with other accumulated family data. Two years later, the information 
was again brought forth; and when pieced together and compared with other 
inscriptions copied at that same time, and with other later findings, the 
discovery was made that this Florence Warren is a granddaughter of 
Elizabeth E. Neu-Warren (1. 6) who came to America from Germany. 

From this unusual introduction, and after a few resulting in- 
quiries, a correspondence developed between the two parties; and in the 
fall of 1960, on the next trip to Iowa, the writer personally visited Florence 
Warren-Waddington. 

The following summer, despite her eighty- two years, this little 
old lady, unaided and unaccompanied, boarded a train in Iowa and came to 
Oakley, Kansas, to spend a week with her long -lost "cousins". During her 
stay the family tree was brought forth, and through the keen memory and 
alert thinking of the Iowa visitor, many additions were made to the records, 
both in the NYE family line and in the WARREN family line. 

Later research revealed the fact that her grandfather, Tillman 
Warren (1. 6) was an uncle of Rhoda Catherine Warren (1. 5, 1) thus proving 
double relationship between the two families.

work, canning, churning, baking, soap making, and sewing. She also re- 
called attending two churches as a child. Her mother was a Free- Will

marks in a written communication: ". . . Sixty to seventy years ago we 
were in the 'horse and buggy' days and the roads were far different from 
our concrete highways. With me that was about the third stage. When I 
was a kid it was the 'horses and wagon'. Later it was the 'horses and 
spring wagon' and finally the 'horse and buggy' days. I can faintly remem- 
ber when we drove up to Grandfather Nye's (William A. Nye, 1. 7) at 
Chillicothe, there was no bridge across the Des Moinss river at Chilli- 
cothe and we usually went in July or August when the river was low enough

FIFTH GENERATION 

1. 5. 1. 1. 2 (STELLA) MAY NYE, born April 9, 1892, near Elgin, Oregon. 
She was brought to Kansas by her parents during the summer of 1893, a 
journey by covered wagon which required three months traveling time. 

Several families traveled together in a caravan; and a herd of 
horses was also driven along. On several occasions the horses left the 
camp at night and returned to the camping spot of the previous night, thus 
requiring a full day for the riders to locate them and drive them back be- 
fore resuming their journey. 

A supply of bread was baked before the start of the trip, and 
after that supply was exhausted, the substitute consisted of quick breads 
that could be skillet-bal<ed over an open fire. The horseback riders car- 
ried guns with which to obtain some of the needed meat. On one occasion 
a particularly skillful wagon-driver winged a sage hen with the long whip 
used to urge the horses along on the long strenuous journey. The few 
Indians which were met along the way were only friendly ones, seeming to 
be mostly interested in, "Trade horse, John?". 

The subject of this biography, although she had learned to walk 
in the state of Oregon, found it necessary to releam the art after arriving 
in Kansas that fall, due to illness along the way and the extended close 
confinement of the covered wagon. Her mother, who, incidentally, was 
expecting the birth of another child that fall, reported in later years that 
her most harrowing experience of the entire trip had been the moment she 
had witnessed from her wagon seat the near drowning of the entire party 
in the wagon just ahead, as the yoimg boy-driver of that wagon had extreme 
difficulty in controlling his team when they forded a river at a particularly 
treacherous crossing. 

(A decided contrast in travel comfort was experienced in later 
years by this same mother and daughter - the mother then being eighty- 
three years old - when together they boarded a plane at Denver, Colorado, 
for the quick flight to Los Angeles, this time luxuriating in the pleasant 
floating-on-the-clouds sensation, while partaking of the delicious meal 
served aloft in lieu of sage hen and sour-dough bread!) 

After arriving in Kansas in the fall of 1893, this tiny girl's 



168 



parents again settled on a farm in Thomas County, near Oakley, in the same 
community where they had lived before going to Oregon. They built a house 
of sod in which they lived until a frame house could be constructed. 

On this farm the subject of this biography grew to womanhood. 
She attended the Belle Prairie rural school and church, and learned the 
many and varied arts of homemaking from her pioneer mother. During 
these years the family's mode of transportation consisted of the farm wagon 
and the horse and buggy, with the bobsled being drafted into service when 
the snow lay deep on the Kansas prairies. 

After her first marriage she lived at Salina and lola, Kansas, 
where her children were born, and at Wichita; and in later years she lived 
on a farm in Thomas County, near Colby, moving after the death of her 
second husband to her home in Colby where she now I'esides. 

One of her pleasures in recent years has been her frequent 
trips to California to visit her three sons and their families, traveling 
usually by car, bus or train. In February, 1955, she enjoyed her first 
boat trip to Havana, Cuba, sailing from Miami, Florida; and in October, 
1964, she was one of a group of one hundred twenty Kansas homemakers 
who traveled to Honolulu, Hawaii, to attend the annual meeting of the 
National Home Demonstration Council, sailing to the Fiftieth State aboard 
the S. S. Lurline. Thus one more mode of travel has been added to her 
long and interesting list. 

Marriages: (1) April 11, 1910, to Earl Laffett Lane, the son 
of Frank Lane and Josie Huffman- Lane. Divorced. (2) November 17,

Allen. He was born November 17, 1889, at Orchard, Nebraska, and died 
June 3, 1953, at Colby, Kansas. Interred at Colby. He was the father 
of two children by a former marriage, Mildred Allen, born April 14, 1915, 
and Dale Allen, born January 15, 1917. Dale Allen later married Violet 
May Wilson (1. 5. 1. 1. 3. 3) a niece of his stepmother.

east of Oakley in Thomas County, Kansas. He attended the Belle Prairie 
rural school and church and the Oakley Consolidated School, 

From the age of fourteen he was actively engaged in farming 
with his father and continued in that occupation after his marriage, living 
on the same farmstead as his parents in a small house which had formerly 
been the home of his paternal grandparents, (Henry Nye, 1. 5. 1), 

After his parents retired from farming in 1942, he purchased 
the family farm which he has continued to operate to the present time add- 
ing additional acreages. In March, 1948, he moved with his family to a 
home in Oakley where he and his wife presently reside.

Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia, for two years. She then taught 
two terms in the one-room rural school which she herself attended as a 
child, having one of her former schoolmates among her pupils. 

Her hobbies are amateur genealogy, amateur photography, and 
travel, three pursuits which she finds convenient to combine. Her husband 
shares her zeal for travel, is less enthusiastic than she in the realm of 
films and shutter speeds, and follows her reluctantly to the sources of 
genealogical data — to the cemeteries with scarcely legible inscriptions, 
to the historical and genealogical libraries, and even to the doorways of 
strangers! Nevertheless, without his dutiful assistance, the material for 
this compilation could not have been assembled.

sleep, and work. " (The writer of her biography is certain that the lack 
of "color" in their lives is definitely counter-balanced by a lack of monotony 
or any inclination toward "sluggishness", physically or mentally, as she 
and her husband provide the material substances and moral guidance for 
"yours, mine, and ours" in rearing and educating their combined families 
of seven children, five of whom will be in high school simultaneously

GEORGE NIGH 
Foreword 



Although a most diligent search has been conducted for the an- 
cestral ties of the George Nigh whose genealogy follows, his ancestry was 
still uncertain at the time of publishing this book. Repeatedly success 
seemed to be at hand, only to learn that still a new and different George 
Nigh/Neu/Neigh of the same time and area had instead been found. 

According to the tax records of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, 
there lived there a John Nigh, Sr. and Jr. who paid taxes several years 
prior to 1780 and also a John New who is listed paying taxes there as early 
as 1762. A George Nigh is said to have been born there on January 5, 
1758: certainly there was a John and a George Nigh who served in Captain 
William Berryhils Company from Cumberland County during the Revolu- 
tion. 

Franklin County was formed from Cumberland County in 1784 and 
we find a John, George and John Nye Sr. listed there in the 1790 census, 
indicating that the John and George of Franklin County are the same as ap- 
pear in the Cumberland County records. There are no Neu-Nye-Nighs 
listed in the Cumberland County census for 1790. John Nigh died in 1806 
in Franklin Co. , Pennsylvania. If this is the saine John Nye, Sr. who 
was the father of John and George, born 1758, then we have a second 
George, as John Sr. in his will names as executor his "son George and 
also George Nigh, the son of his brother". This being the case, this un- 
named brother could have been the father of George Nigh-Neu of Washing- 
ton County, Maryland, which adjoins Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and 
he could well have served as executor. 

A George Ney paid taxes in Berks County, Heidelberg Twp. , Pa. 
in 1767. He was almost certainly the son of Valentine Ney who came on 
the Ship Harle in 1736. This George later is mentioned in several land 
transactions in Tulphocken Twp. , Berks Co. from 1773 to 1786. For the 
last several years of this period he was a saw mill operator; after 1790 
there is no further record of him in that area. 

In the census of 1790 he is listed with two males over 16, 3 males 
under 16 and 6 females in the family. He could have been born as early as 
1732 and would then have been old enough to have had a son born 1755. 

Regretfully, this riddle is left unsolved. It is hoped these records 
will help point the way to an eventual solution.

FIRST GENERATION 

1. GEORGE NIGH, born January 21, 1755 in Pennsylvania. He mar- 
ried November 15, 1777, Mary Magdalena Saylor (Sailor), daughter of 
Matthias and Magdalena Sailor. George was a man of considerable means 
and importance in his area. His name appears often in affairs of Wash- 
ington County, Maryland. Records show he was supervisor in charge of 
building roads in the county. He was Justice of the Peace there from 18 02 
to 1806. In 1799 he was "Trustee of the Poor". He was a senior member 
of a committee which met July 14, 1807 to draft resolutions "upon the 
dastardly outrages committed by the British Squadron stationed on our 
coast on the flag and citizens of the United States". He used a number of 
spellings of his name in transactions and records the names of Nye, Neu, 
Nigh and possibly Ney and Neigh. He died November 16, 1830 in Amanda 
Twp. , Fairfield Co. , Ohio. He is buried near Amanda, Ohio on land 
which he had set aside for family burial. His wife, Magdalena who was 
born February 12, 1754, died November 12, 1821.

FOURTH GENERATION 

42 JAMES NYE (Frisby 13, George Jr. 2, George 1), born July 23, 1830. 
Birthplace is not known. In 1852, in Carey, Ohio, there is recorded his 
marriage to Emily Warren. She was born September 8, 1833, and in the 
Ohio census of 1850 is recorded in Geaugo Co. as E. Warren, F. , age 19. 
James was evidently a colorful character, and family stories place him at 
various times in Utah and California, in the Union Army during the Civil 
War, and even cast him as a friend of Abraham Lincoln, but unfortunately 
these stories cannot be substantiated. That he was a wanderer seems 
borne out by the fact that his wife, Emily, is buried in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, 
and he died and is buried in Houghton, Michigan. Her death occurred on 
December 3, 1907, but the date of his death is unknown. There was an 
interval when the family lived in Rochester, Indiana, where Jame's aunt, 
Sarah Nigh Richardson, and her husband were in residence. Also living 
with Joseph and Sarah Richardson was her mother, Susannah Knooce Nigh, 
widow of George Nigh. The second child of James and Emily, Francis 
Jeremiah, was born in Rochester in 1855.

69 CHARLES LAWRENCE NYE (James 42, Frisby 13, George J. 2, 
George 1), known as Lawrence to most of the family, he was born in 1854. 
Early in life he migrated to Alaska, where he eventually became owner of 
the public utilities company in Skagway. He married a Catherine ? 
who owned a restaurant there. There were no children. Periodically, 
they came to the States and visited his brothers and sisters, and are re- 
membered by the children in the families for their generosity. He bought 
Franklin cars on these trips, and himself built twelve miles of road about 
Skagway to make these cars useful to him. His substantial home in Skag- 
way had an extensive greenhouse where he raised vegetables for the win- 
ters. He died in Seattle, Washington, in 1937, and inscribed on his tomb- 
stone is "PIONEER OF ALASKA". 

7 FRANCIS JEREMIAH NYE (James 42, Frisby 13, George Jr. 2, 
George 1), known as Frank, born January 30, 1855 in Rochester, Indiana. 
We do not know what engaged the family there, except his Great-grand- 
parents, George Jr. and Susannah (Knooce) Nye were in residence, with 
their daughter, Sarah Nigh Richardson and her husband, Joseph, during 
that period. Affidavits were filed in Fulton County by George Jr. , in 
1850, and later, by his widow, in 1861, in regard to a claim for bounty 
land as a reward for service in the War of 1812. 

Nothing is known of Frank until his marriage in 1881 to Flora (or 
Florence) Arnold, in West Unity, Ohio, May 12, 1881. Flora Arnold was 
of a good family of West Unity; her brother Charles and his son after him 
owned a men's clothing store in West Unity. Their oldest child, Arthur, 
was born there in 1884. Apparently the family soon migrated to Kansas. 
In 1886 they built a very good house in Kanopolis, Kansas. . In those pio- 
neer days, a good house with screen doors, and a pump for the well, was 
a notable achievement. 

Probably it was in Kanopolis that the second child, Ethel, was 



244 



bom. As a tiny tot, she found and consumed a large quantity of pills, and 
died from the overdosage. Her mother never recovered from the grief of 
this tragedy. 

It is assumed that Frank was always a merchant, since this was 
his business in later life, and nothing to the contrary is known. About 
1890, the family moved again, and this time it was to nearby Belle Plaine, 
Kansas. There were born the twins, Carrie and Charlie, and also a son, 
Robert I. and an unnamed child which did not survive. The twin, Charlie, 
died soon after birth. No family connection exists, but other Nyes from 
Ohio were in Belle Plaine at the time. A Henry Nye and his brother were 
residing there after migrating from northwestern Ohio. (See 3140a, Henry 
Lawrence Nye, Volume II) 

Sometime in the 90's or early 1900's, the family was on the move 
again, this time to Erie, Kansas. Here, Frank was proprietor of a gen- 
eral store. Pictures of this era show them to have been an unusually 
good-looking, well-dressed family. In later life, Frank and Flora moved 
to Webb City, Missouri, where they died at an advanced age, he in 1944 
and she in 1945. Their burial place is in Webb City.

SIXTH GENERATION 

109 ARTHUR NYE (Francis J. 70, James 42, Frisby 13, George Jr. 2, 
George 1), born January 7, 1884 at West Unity, Ohio. His birth was the 
second or third recorded in Williams County. His parents took him, as a 
baby, to Kansas, living first in Kanopolis, later in Belle Plaine, and still 
later in Erie. 

At sixteen he married, July 14, 1901, Lillie Ethel Kyle, daughter 
of Lewis Richard Kyle, a large land owner and developer of Neosho County. 
Their marriage was an elopement, so the little town of Erie had subject 
for conversation for a time. Later, Arthur attended La Salle University 
in Chicago for special courses in business and then opened a dry goods 
store in Erie in partnership with a Mr. George Gaston. 

In 1906, the only child, Kyle, was born in Erie. During his 
childhood he was ill with numerous episodes of respiratory disease, so in 
1917 the family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. There, Arthur was 
associated with the "Economist", a drygoods and fashion store, until his 
retirement in 1929. In 1942, during World War n, his merchandising 
experience was called into service at a Post Exchange at Kirtland Field in 
Albuquerque. At the end of 1945, while engaged in his work as manager 
of one of the Exchanges, he died suddenly of a heart attack. His widow, at 
eighty-two, lives in Albuquerque. (1965)

JOHN PETER NYE 

by 

L. Bert Nye 
McLean, Virginia 

The ancestry of Captain John Peter Nye remains unsolved. One 
reference gives his forbears as Benjamin and Katherine (Tupper) Nye of 
Sandwich, Mass. Circumstances of places, names and family legend make 
more plausible the assuinption that he was of Palatine Neu or Ney origin. 
Old records in St. John's Lutheran Church at Wytheville, Virginia bear the 
name on John P. Ney. His father or grandfather may well have been one of 
the sevei'al Ney immigrants who arrived from the Palatinate between 1727 
and 1774. His mother was a Price, a descendant of the Philip and Rachel 
Price who came to America with William Penn. His home was originally 
in York, Pennsylvania and his father's family seems to have remained there 
as he made occasional trips to his old home after he was established in 
Wythe County, Va. A search of York County records and Lutheran Church 
records there should make possible the final determination of his ancestry. 
Also, the spelling of his wife's surname is in quesiion. The National 
Genealogical Society Quarterly, Vol. 30, page 151, gives that he married 
Elizabeth Sippel referencing the family bible of Christopher Sippel; this 
also gives the birth year of his children. The Wythe County, Va. History, 
presumably taken from family records states her name was Elizabeth 
Seagle and that she was related to the Virginia families of Spillard and 
Thresher. (Her father, it is stated, was Jacob Seagle, also given as Sigle, 
who came to America from Germany in 1743.) Captain Nye probably 
served in the War of 1812. Records show he was present November, 1816 
as part of the Court during a courtmartial procedure of the 35th Regiment 
of Volunteers, Virginia Militia. 

Much of the material and the decision to include this chapter came 
after part of this book was already in process of printing. It has not been 
possible to present as complete a family history as would have been other- 
wise attempted. 

The following references were used for this section in addition to 
family data sheets:

1 . JOHN PETER NYE, born at . Son of Nye and 



Price. Married, 1795, Elizabeth, daughter of Jacob Seagle (Sigle), who 
came to America from Germany in 1743. He died November 5, 1827 at 
. She was born Sept. 2, 1776; died May 6, 1852. 

Capt. Nye came to Virginia from York, Penna. , and lived for 
awhile in the Stone House at Christiansburg. 

Wythe County records show that he purchased a lot on the Main 
Street of Evansham in 1798. Later he bought lot No. 5, at the southeast 
intersection of Main and First Streets. In that deed he obligated himself 
to build a stone wall at no greater cost than $150. 00 at a certain place on 



257 



the site. A part of this wall is visible under the present building. 

Between 1810-1820 Capt. Nye made entries approximating 3, 000 
acres on the waters of Reed Creek, in the neighborhood of the Toncrays, 
Davises, and the Robert Crockett heirs. 

He was prominent in civic, religious and governmental affairs. 
In 1806 he framed a body of laws for the town. In 1812 he was one of the 
Board of Trustees which met May 13 in accordance with the provision of a 
new act of the General Assembly. In 1813 he was elected to the Virginia 
Legislature. 

He made occasional visits to his old home in York, Penna. , and 
on his return some of his friends and neighbors accompanied him. Among 
the numbers were the Hallers, Evalde, Prices and Sutherses. 

Dr. John Haller, Dr. Robert Cibboney and Capt. Nye, the former 
a skillful surgeon, organized the first inedical college west of the Blue 
Ridge Mountains. Classes were conducted in the old Haller House at the 
northeast corner of Main and Fourth Avenue. (Dr. John Haller had built 
his new home, the Old Rock House, at the corner of Tazewell St. and 
Monroe in 1823.) A log house which stood in the rear of the present site 
of Fourth Avenue Hotel was used as the operating unit of the college, or 
university, as some called it. This school functioned until the opening of 
the Civil War. Dr. Robert Crockett, one of southwest Virginia's finest 
surgeons, received his preparatory training there, as did four sons of 
Capt. Nye and four members of the Haller family. 

Capt. John P. Nye was a prominent Mason. He was initiated into 
the order in 1801 in Wytheville and had advanced, so his greatgrandson 
said, to the York Rite at the time of his death in 1826. His lodge at one 
time was located at the Lead Mines. He served as Master of the Wythe- 
ville Lodge and was several times sent as a delegate to the Grand Lodge 
in Richmond. When a paralytic stroke confined him to his home one or 
more meetings of the Lodge convened there. He and his wife are buried 
in the cemetery of St. Johns Lutheran Church, Wytheville, Va.

5 Priscilla Malinda, also given as Griselda Malinday, bom
