P^very person wiio po><sesscH any pride, will, after he passes 
the meridian of life, if not before, turn liis thougiits more or 
le;?s to tlie past. Tliat pa.^t will embraee his aneestors. It 
will be gratifyiiiii to know soniethini; of them. 

To supply that information, and at the same time to pre- 
serve sueh facts as might be liad from documents in the fam- 
ily, and also such as may have come down as traditi<jn in 
the family, is the object of this unpretendintr pamjihlet. Be- 
yond an examination, by myself, of tlie will records of the 
Getzendanners, and the records of the (Jermanor Evangelical 
Reform ("hurch for the births and marriages of tlie Bucke\' 
family^ by Miss Laura (letzendanner, reliance has Ix'en most- 
ly on private family documents, bibles and on the memorv uf 
one or two of the oldest ol*the family. 

Fur a large part of the information about the younger mem- 
bers of these families, I have relied on my own memory, which 
after a tiiirty years residence, more than two thousand miles 
distant, must be more or less imjierfect. ConsecjUently manv 
facts I might be presumed to know will be overlooked, and 
often dates are approximate, and middle names forgotton or 

That tins family record is not as correct and full as it might 
be. is admitted; but it represents as mucW libor and time as I 
could devote to tlie subject. / J^ ///// .'^

The earliest settlements of what is now Frederick County. 

Maryland, were made by a few English people from the tide 

water country of the state and a number of Palatines fiom 
Germany, along with whom were some Swiss and a few French. 
Prior to 1725 there were no settlements in that portion of the 
state, and comparatively spoaliing but few until 17o0. a,t which 
time the inllux of Palatines from (iermany and Germans from 
eastern Pennsylvania began to take place. Tlie earliest (Ger- 
man emigrants landed at Philadelphia, Penn., and mov^d 
across and along the fcrtle valleys westward and foithwes-t- j 
ward, and always located on the best land. They brought , 

with them their ministers, their teachers, doctors etc. 1 

These emigrants and their fathers had witnessed the relent- i 


less religious wars in Germany, and doubtless hoped to avoid | 

persecuti!)n and oppression in the now country. They were I 
mostly IjUthcrans and (Jerman Reformers, and soon had the j 
country dotted over with churches and school houses. These I 
German emigrants took up land in this new region ofthi^ wo'-ld, , 
and improved it, and their descendonts of to-day virtually 
own, with the exception of a few poor districts, the whole 

Tli(> Monocacy Valley, extending through this county, can- 
not be surpassed in beauty and fertility by any s{)ot on God's 
green earth, I

The Susquehanna tribe of Indians, prior to its settlement 
by the whites, occupied this region of the country. They 
were of the six nations of our colonial history, and were said 
by Cai)t. John Smith of Virginia, to be the finest specimens of 
manhood he ever belield. They dwindled away in the civil 
wars of the tribes, and by the terrible scourge of small pox 
which prevailed among them. The miserable remnani was 
pushed back by tlie influx of the whites. Some few could not 
be induced to leave that Eden. One Chief, named Tom, lived 
and died on a creek which bears his name this day, and anoth- 
er in the same way gave his name to the Linganore. (Miller's 
Directory of Frederick County.) 

It was in this Monocacy Valley our ancestor cast his lot, 
and where his descendants, for years, lived and many of them 
still live and ilourish.
