INTEO'DUCTION. 

This HistoTie Genealogy will embrace in quite a wide field 
of research, not only the immediate family line of descent of 
the Title Niame, from the first settlement thereof in this coun- 
try, in 1738, but also historic interests of no little importance 
and value therewith, and various collateral alliances with other 
families which have wielded important influence in their day 
and generation during the formative period of the history of 
this country. 

Between the years 1725 and 1770 there was large and continu- 
ous emigration to Pennsylvania from the Palatinate of South 
Germany. They were largely of a sturdy and industrial class — 
tillers of the soil — 'judges of good land, and consequently made 
choice of localitiesi suitable to their vocation. They soon proved 
themselvets a valuable addition to the Commonwealth by their 
honesty and their economic and persistent industry in subduing 
the new lands of their wise choice, to prosperous success and 
comfortable living. They also soon became known as a class by 
the name of "The Pennsylvania Germans," whose descendants 
in large numbers, with the same class name and the same solid 
characteristios, still dominate the portions of the State where 
they first settled. 

The Germans of the Palatinate were largely Protestant. They 
brought their strong religious faith with them, and to this day 
they form the bulk of the Luthexan Church in the State. 
Among them as Missionary Pioneers were Conrad Weiser, Henry 
Melchior Muhlenburg, and John Casper Stoever, Sr., and John 
Casper Stoever, Jr., who ministered well and faithfully for 
many years among their people in the eastern counties of the 
State, and with whom were marriage alliances of the Ege line. 

The Ege family of Wurtemburg is a very old one. Among 
them have been those prominent in Civil and Political life, and 
in P'rofessional and Literary vocations. There is said to be a 
tombstone of one who was the Burgomeister of the Town of 



INTRODUCTION. 

Esslingen, on the Neckar Kiver, a few miles from Stuttgardt, 
the capital of Wurtemburg. This tombstone also bears the Ege 
"Coat of Arms." 

Another of the name was a well-known scholarly Litterateur 
of liis day. 

Eecent researches show that there are still four leading family 
lines of the name in the Province, which no doubt can be 
traced to the One Source. 

During the early emigration to this country, and at intervals 
later, others of the same family name have settled here. Some 
of these the author has met, and with others has had corres- 
pondence.

FOREWOEDS. 
I. 

During the period of the Gremian Emigration there arrived 
at Philadelphia September 20th, 1738, from the Province of 
Wurtemburg, via Eotterdam, Holland, in the ship "Nancy and 
Friendship," in command of Captain William Wallace, a father 
and four sons, as follows : 

I Bernhard Ege age 50 years 

Sons. 

1. Jacob Ege age 25 years 

2. George-Michael Ege " 23 " 

3. Adam Ege " 13 " 

4. Martyn Ege " 11 " 

KOTE. 

George-Michael was recorded as a widower. 

— From Emigrant Records, in Phila. Hist. Soc. 

A legend, of which no certified data has been found, says 
there was a daughter Margaret, and that George-Michael had 
been married to a first cousin, who died at childbirth, and that 
the sister, Margaret, had the care of the infant child of her 
brother. 

Nor has any after knowledge been obtained as to where the 
father, Bemliard, passed the rest of his days, but most probably 
with his older sons alternately in Virginia and Philadelphia. 

II. 

A few days later there also arrived in Philadelphia from 
Hesse-Cassel, General Nicholas Scheea^er, wife and family. 
Among them a daughter, Maria Dorothea. The wife of 
General Scheerer had been a. Lady of the Court at Hesse- 
Oassel, in waiting to the Queen. The Queen had been 
God-Mother at the baptism of the daughter, Maria Dorothea, 
and had presented to her a Golden Bowl used at the 
Baptism. The Court dress of the mother, and the Golden 
Bowl were preserved in the family and among descendants for 
many years as valuable "Heirlooms." 

The Ege and Scheerer families meeting together thus soon 
after their arrival became intimate friends. An attachment and 
engagement soon followed between Jacob Ege, the oldest son, 
and Maria Dorothea, the daughter. The destination of the 
Scheerer family was the James RiVer Settlements of Virginia.

FOREWORDS. 

Jacob decided at once to cast his lot with his new friends, 
and so followed his fiancee. Arriving there they learned of a 
new city having Just been planned on the lands of Colonel Wm. 
Byrd, on the upper James Eiver, to be called Richmond. Visit- 
ing the site they decided to settle there, and immediately pro- 
ceeded to purchase lots and build a Home for the Bride. 

III. 

George-Michael Ege, the second son, remained in Philadel- 
phia. He soon became acquainted with other German families; 
among them a then already prominent one by the name of Holz 
the German for "Wood," which a few years later the family 
adopted as their English name, and by which a large line of 
descendants are known to this day. Of this family, George- 
Michael married the daughter Anna Catarina Holz-in — the "in" 
being the feminine termination to the name. 

IV. 

In 1750 a wealthy German Baron, Heinrich Wilhelm Stiegel, 
from Mannheim, Germany, landed in Philadelphia. In the 
autumn of 1758 the Baron married as his second wife, Eliza- 
beth Holz-in, sister of Anna Catarina, the wife of George- 
Michael Ege. 

V. 

Adam Ege, the 13-year-old and third son, found a home in 
jSTew Jersey, to learn the manners and customs of the new land, 
and also to learn to be a farmer. His new friends were John 
Hobbs and wife, of Amwell Township, Hunterdon County. 
They became friends indeed ; gave him a good education for the 
times, and in 1759, being without children, for a small sura in 
hand, they gave him, as their heir, deed for the home and farm. 
His brother, Martyn Ege, and the fourth son, was witness to this 
deed at the date above-mentioned. The only other mention of 
this youngest brother was in connection with Adam, in a list of 
taxables in Eeading, Pennsylvania, in 1757, for a joint prop- 
erty there, where it is to be believed the youngest brother set- 
tled, but of which fact, or any further data, diligent research 
has failed to verify. 

VI. 

From these beginnings in this country there has followed a 
long line of descendants, and much interesting and associated 
history. The Genealogy of the three sons — ^Jacob, in Virginia; 
George-]\Iichael, in Pennsylvania, and Adam, in N"ew Jersey — 
will follow in this order.

INTRODUCTION 

TO 

HISTORY OF JACOB EGE, HEAD OF VIRGINIA BRANCH. 

Jacob Ege, Sr., eldest son of Bernhard Ege, of the Provence 
of Wurtemburg, Germany, landed in Philadelphia with his father 
and brothers in 1738. He proceeded at once to Virgiania to 
seek a home, and soon decided to settle in the newly planned 
City of Richmond. He took up several lots on the northern side 
of Main street, extending to Franklin, as appear by later trans- 
actions, and supposed to extend from Seventeenth to Twenty- 
second streets. 

He built his house about the middle of Lots Nos. 31-32, be- 
tween Nineteenth and Twentieth streets, in 1738-39. 

This building has long been designated as "The Old Stone 
House," concerning which several very interesting historical 
accounts have been written, some of which here follow.

KISTOEIC SKETCHES OF "THE OLD STONE HOUSE." 

From "Lossing's Field Booh of the Revolution," Vol. II., p. 232, 
Copyrighted 1850. Puh. by Harper and Brothers. 

On my way from St. John's Church I sketched the City 
Tavern and the "Okl Stone House/' which was the first dwell- 
ing erected in Eichmond and among tlie houses there which was 
spared by the incendiary fire in 1781. The "Old Stone House" 
built by Jacob Ege is cherished in the affections of the citizens 
of Eichmond "as the first dwelling erected within the city 
limits." 

It Avas occupied by Mrs. Elizabeth Welsh, whose grandfather 
built it before Byrd's Warehouse was erected. 

"It was next owned by Mrs. Welsh's father, Samuel Ege, who 
was a Commissary in the American Army during the War of 
the Eevolution. Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe 
have all been beneath its roof. 

Mrs. Welsh informed me that she well remembered when Mon- 
roe boarded with her mother while attending the Virginia Con- 
vention in 1788.* She was then ten years of age. Mrs. Welsh 
also related a circumstance which she well remembered. 
"While Monroe boarded with her mother, Samuel Hardy, another 
member of the Convention, did also. Hardy was a very modest, 
retiring man. One morning at breakfast Monroe remarked to 
Hardy in a jocular manner, 'I have no doubt you will be Gov- 
ernor of the State yet.' Tes,' rejoined Hardy, 'and you will 
have your hair qued and be sent to Congress.' " 

Hardy was afterward Lieutenant Governor of the State, and 
Monroe was not only sent to Congress, as a Senator, but be- 
came also a Foreign Minister and Chief Magistrate of the 
Nation. — Benson Lossing. 

* Samuel Seheerer, a brother of Mrs. Jacob Ege, was a member of 
this convention. 



VIRGINIA BRANCH. 

From "Historical Collections of Virginia." 
by Henry Howe in 1852. 

"The Old Stone House" so-called, and then over a century 
old, was built b}'- Jacob Ege, 1738-39. 

It is situated on the northern side of Main Sti-eet, a few 
rods below the Market. It was one of the first, if not the first, 
built in Richmond, after the laying out of the city by Major 
William Mayo, April 1737. 

It is the property of Mrs. Elizabeth Welsh (1852) and has 
been in the same family from its beginning. 

Jacob Ege, her grandfather, was a German, and settled on 
this spot when there were few or no inliabitants on the site of 
the town, and previous to the erection of Byrd's Warehouse. 

Wlien President Monroe was a young man attending school 
in Eichmond he boarded with Mrs. Samuel Ege. Samuel Ege,. 
the father of Mrs. Elizabeth Welsh, resided in this house during 
the Eevolution. At that time it was one of the best houses in 
Eichmond. 

It has been honored by visits of Washington, Jefferson, Madi- 
son, Henry, Lafayette, and other distinguished personages. 
This part of the town was first settled, and it gradually ex- 
tended to the Capitol, which was commenced in 1780. Wlien 
the British under Arnold invaded Eichmond in 1781, Mr. Ege 
was absent on duty as Commissary in the American Army. 

The first his wife knew of their approach was 'seeing a body 
of cavalry galloping down Eichmond Hill, then much steeper 
than at present (1752). She described it "as the most beautiful 
sight she ever witnessed." One of their officers was quartered in 
her house.* The soldiers broke open the storeis and emptied 
liquors and provisions in the streets and gMttera. The coWi? 
and hogs drank of the liquors and were seen staggering about 
the streets. 



From ''Richmond in By-gone Days" 
Mordecai, 1st edition, 1856, p. 33. 

Among the most respectable residences in point of age and 
appearance of which Eichmond can boast is the "Old Stone 
House" in Main street, which dates probably A. IT. C, and what 
is more remarkable, has always been in the Ege family. 

In answer to an inquiry the Editor of the Eichmond Times- 
Dispatch adds : 

Mr. Mordecai lived in the middle portion of the XlXth cen- 

* This fact, no doubt, saved her house from the incendiary. 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

tury and from his equivocal A. U. C. left the age of the venerable 
building in doubt. An old gentleman tells us that his father 
remembered the building of the house and that the stones of 
its supporting walls were brought from the James Eiver, in the 
state of undressed granite boulders. In the opinion of some 
tliere were as old, if not older, houses standing upright in Rich- 
mond at that time (1856), and that some of these carried an 
age before that of either the town or city. These were of wood 
and of Dutch design. 

Note. 

Jacob Ege, the builder, and early settler in Richmond, came 
there in 1738, the next year after the plan for a town was sur- 
veyed for Col. Wm. Byrd, Jr., who had inherited the large 
body of land granted by King James, of England, to his father. 
Much of tills land was under cultivation and had been no doubt 
for years before the planning of the same for a town. Tenant 
houses were here and there for his laborers. Some of these 
laborers were Germans. 

An old family record says that the "Old Stone Hiouse" was 
the fifth house built on this land. The late James Lawrence 
Ege, who died in 1903, in his 87th year, and the last of the 
Ege name resident in Richmond, said very freqently in the 
memory of his family, "that the stones (of which the house was 
built) were ballast thrown on the shore of the river from ves- 
sels coming to load with tobacco at Manchester, and therefore 
deposited their ballast on tlie opposite shore." — T. P. E. 

Note. 

There is a stone of good shape and proportion in the "Old 
Stone House," placed on a line ■with the lintel of the window, 
left side of the entrance and beneath the eaves, on which is in- 
scribed a Monogram composed of a Cross and the two letters 
IR combined — thus,-f-R — evidently meaning James Rex — 
King James. How, when, and why, this marked stone found a 
place there is an interesting query? 

The German Builder (if so?) was not a subject of King 
James, and at that late day, 1738, could have had no reason for 
so placing such a stone, unless by chance. 

According to the well-established tradition, that stones for 
the building were gathered from the shore of the river, may not 
this stone have been gathered up with the rest, having doubtless 
long fallen from its place, and when discovered as being so 
marked, placed in this special position for better preservation? 

10 



VIRGINIA BRANCH. 

And so, also, may it not have been the stone so marked in 
honor of his God and King by John Smith at the time of his 
exploration of the Eiver to this point? 

The "Old Stone House" is still owned by descendants of the 
Ege family, and when it shall pass out of their possession, "it 
is devoutly to be wished that it shall come into the care and 
keeping of 'The Association for the Preservation of Virginia 
Antiquities.' "— T. P. E., 1911.

Lines op Descent. 

The number preceding each name designates its place in the 
order of birth of the family name, next following to the end of 
the line, as follows : 

1. Thompson P. Ege, 1. Oliver, 3. Michael, Jr., 5. Michael, 
Sr., 2. George-Michael, I Bernhard. 

1. Thompson is the first child of 1. Oliver, of 3. Michael, Jr., 
of 5. Michael, Sr., of 2. George-Michael, of I Bernhard. 

Counting from right to left, the place held by each name in 
the line designates the generation to which said name belongs. 
Thus, Thompson is found in Gen. VI. 

NUMBERING AND INDEXING. 

When Numbers in parenthesis, connected by hyphen, precede 
the name beginning a family group, tlie first is the Index Num- 
ber, referring to the original family group in which it first 
•occurs, and the Number after the hyphen its place or order in 
said original family group. 

In enumerating a family group, the Number next under the 
parenthesis is the Index Number of husband or wife, and leads 
the family— thus, Oliver (483-1), wife 484 to 489-4— the 489-4 
being Index Number of last child, and tlie 4 the number of 
Children in the family and the 4th child.

HISTORIC SKETCH. 

In that early day the trade in tobacco had become a large and 
profitable business. The early shipping port was Manchester, 
opposite the City of Richmond, and now incorporated as part of 
the greater city. Jacob Ege, Sr., seeing that a oo-ordinate 
branch of this business was a constant demand and a profitable 
one, established and conducted a large Cooperage Manufactory. 
This same business was still carried on by Jacob Gait Ege, a 
grand'son. 

The first record by deed of any transfer of property by Jacob 
Ege, Sr., was a half acre, viz., one-half of City Lots Nos. 32 
and 46 of original city plan, between Main and Franklin streets, 
and on the east side of Twentieth Street, to George Scheerer, 
who was probably a brother of his wife. Jacob is named in this 
deed as cooper and Scheerer as joiner. Date of said deed, 
June 0, 1748, Henrico Court Becords, 1748-70; page^ 109-10. 

About that time, or probably a little earlier. Lot No. 48 of 
original city plan, being a portion of Jacob Ege's early hold- 
ings, was either sold or conveyed for some consideration of 
friendship to Isaiah Isaacs, who in turn conveyed it for the 
"nominal consideration of five shillings current money of Vir- 

13 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

ginia, in a deed of trust to Simon Gratz, Aaron Levi, Moses 
Jacobs, and Levi Myers, trustees, to be beld by them for the 
purposes of burial of such Jews as then resided in Richmond; 
their families, and such as might be brought there from other 
points. The ground was never to be sold, rented or used for 
any other purpose." 

The first witness (of whom there were five) to this document 
was Jacob Ege, Sr., 

In the fall of 1909 this old Burial Plot was thoroughly restored 
and re-dedicated in an occasion of great ceremony and interest. 

Note. 

In, a later division of the Jacob Ege property Lot No. 34 of 
city plan, adjoining the cemeteiy lot on the south side, and 
fronting on Main Street, became the inheritance of Anna Ege, 
his youngest and only unmarried daughter. 

"The last will and testament of Jacob Ege, Sr., bearing date 
the 2nd day of November, 1762, duly executed, proved, and re- 
corded in the Court of Henrico County, Virginia, did devise 
that his wife, Dorotliea, should possess and enjoy the two lots 
and houses in Eichmond whereon they then lived, and other 
propei-ty, with the rents and profits thereof, and that after her 
decease the said lots and bouses should be sold and divided 
equally among his surviving children." — Quoted. 

The next record of the disposition of property is of date 
the 1st day of March, 1784, and was between Maria Dorothea 
Ege, relict and devisee of Jacob Ege, late of the town of Eich- 
mond, deceased; Samuel Ege, Jacob Ege, Jr., Gabriel Gait, and 
Elizabeth, his wife; David Lambert, and Sarah his wife; and 
Anna (Nancy) Ege, devisees of the said Jacob Ege, St., de- 
ceased, O'f the one part, and George Anderson, Esq., of Hen- 
rico County, Virginia, of the other part, for all that messuage 
or tenement situate in the City of Richmond known and dis- 
tinguished by Lot No. 50, in the plan and draught of said city ; 
consideration. Three hundred and Twenty-five pounds." — 
Quoted from Becord Book, Vol. L, 1780-85, page 187, Henrico 
County Court. 

From this it would appear that Jacob Ege, St., did not die 
for a number of years after the making of his will in 1762, and 
most probably not until early in 1784. From other evidence it 
appears that there had been other dispositions of property, of 
which records have been lost, as for example : 

The fact of Lot No. 34 named as a boundary, in another 
transaction, at or near this same time, is mentioned as the 
property of Anna Ege, the youngest child of Jacob Ege, St.

VIRGINIA BRANCH. 

The next Indenture of E'eoord, of date July 31st, 1784, wad 
a tripartite agreement; Samuel Ege, oldest son, and heir-at- 
law, of Jacob Ege, Sr., deceased, and Elizabeth, wife of the said 
Samuel of the first part; Gabriel G-alt and Elizabeth his wife, 
David Lambert and Sarah hie wife, and Anna (liancy), spin- 
ster, which Elizabeth, Sarah, and Anna (Nancy) were daughters 
and devisees of said Jacob Ege, Sr., of the second part; and 
Jacob Ege, Jr., then of the City of Eichmond, and son of 
Jacob Ege, Sr., deceased, of the third part; Witnesseth, that 
Whereas ©aid Jacob Ege, Sr. did devise all his property to his 
wife Maria Dorothea until her decease; and Whereas the said 
Dorothea, now the widow of said Jacob Ege, St., is still living, 
and the estate devised to her still exists, and Wlrereas the afore- 
said heirs at law are willing and desirous to transfer to the 
said Jacob Ege, Jr., all right and interest, togetheT with all the 
estate wliich they or either of them now has, or at any time 
hereafter may have to the said devised estate, for and in con- 
sideration, as well as of the love and affection which they have 
and bear to their aforesaid brother Jjacob Ege, Jr., and as of 
the sum of One Shilling current money of Virginia, to each of 
them by the said Jacob Ege, Jr., in hand paid at and before 
the sealing and delivery of these presents, they hereby sell, 
gi-ant and release the two Lots 33 and 47 of the city plan of the 
City of Eichmond, with all houses, buildings, and appurte- 
nances thereunto belonging to the said Jacob Ege, Jr., his heirs 
and assigns." — Aitreviated from original deed. 

This Deed was duly signed by all the heirs, except the Mother, 
who was still living. Consequently, Deed did not at once pass. 
It was witnessed by Samuel Scheerer, Eichard Bowler, and 
Charles Lambert. 

Written on the margin of the Original Indenture is the 
statement that this Indenture and Deed was delivered April 
26th, 178,7. The widow did not die until 1803. Hence, this 
must have been by her consent and order of the Court because 
of disability from advanced age. — Vol. I., 1780-85, page 267, 
Henrico County Court House Records. 

In the next year, August 10th, 1785, Jacob Ege, Jr., and 
wife Elizabeth, deeded to Diavid Lambert, his brother-in-law, 
subject to the same conditions of reserved deed, part of said 
Lots I^Tos. 33 and 47 of city plan, 33 feet front on Middle Street, 
now Franklin, adjoining Lot No. 48, Hebrew Cemetery, and ex- 
tending through to Main Street., and adjoining Lot jSTo. 44, of 
Anna Ege, ending with 33 feet on Main Street, for the sum of 
four hundred and seventy-five pounds. — Vol. II., page 97, Hen- 
rico County Records.

SKETCH. 



A brief sketch of Jacob Ege, Jr., the youngest child and 
second son of Jacob, Sr., which in the regular order of descent 
should follow last, yet because of the fact that he was the first 
of the family to die, and leaving no heirs, it has seemed appro- 
priate to add his brief history here. 

Jacob Ege, Jr., m. a'b't 1785 Elizabeth Stubelfeld, the only 
daughter of John and Eva Stubelfeld, of James City County, 
Virginia. Slie was born October 25th, 1769. 

The Stubelfeld family, of East Virginia, and in Stafford and 
Spottsylvauia Counties, have been prominent both in social and 
official life. 

Jacob Ege, Jr., was a man of energy and enterprise, higlily 
esteemed by all who Icuew him, and greatly beloved by his fam- 
ily, as previously shown in the disposition of property. He 
was especially prominent and popular in Masonic circles, and 
with his brothers-in-law, G-abriel Gait and David Lambert, were 
deeply interested in the establishment of Masonry in Eichmond, 
and in the projection and building the Masonic Hall on 
Franklin Street, which is still in good preservation and use by 
Eichmond Bandolph Lodge, No. 19, after more than a century. 

David Lambert headed the list of Petitioners to the, Grand 
Lodge of the State for a Charter, to form a New Lodge in 
Eichmond. William Waddill was the first Master, and com- 
menced his administration with three members besides himself — 
David Lambert as first secretary, John Dixon, Sr., and John 
V. Krautzman as Tiler. Jacob Ege, Jr., as the next Master, 
from 1789 to 1793. Again elected in 1795, during which he 
died while still in office. 

The entire square in which the Masonic Lot is a part was 
the original property of Jacob Ege, Sr., and at the time of se- 
lecting a site for the building of the Masonic Hall it was under 
the life control and ownership of his widow. About this time the 
widow, being advanced in years, it appears, consented that her 
children should make a friendly allotment among themselves of 
the property, but under the condition of reserved Title Deeds 
while she lived, or until because of inability the Courts should 
permit such allotments to be confirmed and deeds approved. 

The first agreement of this kind was made by mutual consent 
of all the heirs, as previously shown, to Jacob Ege, Jr., in 1784. 
About the same time similar agreements seem to have been made 
to other heirs, and Gabriel Gait and wife were allotted that 
portion, of which a building site, by donation or otherwise, was 
granted to the Trustees of the Lodge, on Aug. 10, 1785, under 
a penalty of 500 pounds, to grant a Deed in fee as soon as he 

16 



VIRGINIA BRANCH. 

was able. He died before such legal right was his. Ten years 
later the Courts finally took means to adjust the difficulty and 
confirm the title to the Masonic body. 

Jacob's wife inherited his estate, and was executrix for it<J 
final settlement. Her inventory of accounts was audited, ap- 
proved, and signed by C. Wills, John Enders and Jacob Gait 
Ege. 

About 1800, Elizabeth Ege, his widow, married Captain 
Joseph A. Myers, U. S. Kavy. She died very suddenly from a 
stroke of apoplexy, Jan. 11, A.D. 1839. 

Her tombstone, a large marble slab on pedestals in Old St. 
John's Churchyard, records quite a history of her life. It says : 
"Deprived by death at a very early age of parental care, an or- 
phan, she was committed to the care of her maternal uncle, and 
when about fourteen years of age removed with him to Rich- 
mond, where she continued to reside till death sealed her 
earthly existence."

SKETCH. 

Samuel Ege inherited the "Old Stone House" and lots im- 
mediately pertaining thereto. He was Commissary of the 
American Army during the War of the Revolution. His -wife, 
Elizabeth Walker, was an orphan from the hour of her birth. 
Her father, returning from the Court of Lunenburg County, 
was drowned in a stream, swollen by a recent storm, and in 
sight of his home. His wife, anxiously looking for him from 
a window, saw this disaster, and from the shock of this sad 
sight was thrown into convulsions, during which she gave 

17 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

birth to her first child, Elizabeth. She was taken and reared in 
the family of an uncle by marriage, Col. Thomas Prosser, in 
Brookfield, near Richmond. Her maternal line was Stokes, nee 
Stockton. (See "Stockton Arms.") 

The following interesting Obituary, written by Bishop Eichard 
Channing Moore, D.D., is worthy of a place in this family his- 
tory : 

"Died at her late residence on East Main Street on Thursday 
night, January 8th, 1829, Mrs. Elizabeth Walker Ege, in the 
83rd year of her age. She was a native of Lunenburg Co., 
Virginia, and for the last seventy years a resident of Richmond. 
She left behind a large family of children, grandchildren and 
great-grandchildren. Devoted to her family, she spent little 
time elseavhere, and thus has it pleased Grod to take from its 
bosom unto Himself one of the oldest, if not the oldest, resi- 
dents of this city. To say in common language that she was 
an affeictionate wife, fond mother, indulgent and charitable 
mistress and exemplary woman, may be taken perhaps as mere 
words, as a matter of course, but not in any one of these rela- 
tions has the busy tongue of slander ever whispered an objec- 
tion to her conduct. 

"Endowed by nature with an energetic and acute mind, she 
early learned that much of her usefulness depended upon her 
utility to minister comfort and relief to the diseased, and hun- 
dreds now living will attest how much they were indebted to her 
charitable prescriptions when in tlie irJancy of our city medical 
advice was scarce and not readily to be obtained. Without any 
parade or show of piety, she was a devout believer in the merits 
of her Lord and Master Jesus Christ, and when in the day of 
her death, the Bishop, her Pastor, visited her and administered 
the Holy Communion, she firmly told him she fully relied on 
the love and mercy of her Redeemer, to whom she was then look- 
ing for comfort and consolation both in time and eternity. 'I 
heard a voice from Heaven, saying. Write, from henceforth 
blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, even so saith the 
Spirit, for they rest from their labors.' " 



A touching tribute, written by a friend, name unlcnov/n, to the 
memory of Samuel H. Ege, son of Samuel and Elizabeth 
Walker Ege, who died shortly after the War of 1812-14, here 
follows : 

"Died, after a short but severe illness, and in the prime of 
life, Ensign Samue] H. Ege, formerly of the Richmond Rifle 
Voluntejers. ' During our late struggle he w^as several times 

18 



VIRGINIA BRANCH. 

compelled to take the tented field, and by brave comrades was 
considered as a benevolent and enterprising officer. He was 
a good citizen, a friend of the widow and orphan and always 
ready and willing, as far as in him lay, to render assistance to 
the miserable and unfortunate. If true repentance, if kind, 
gentle and unassuming manners can command a tear of sym- 
pathy, it must be shed o'er the grave which now contains his 
remains. In him a doting motlier, whose best support he was, 
has to deplore the loss of a truly dutiful son; his sisters and 
brothers, the death of a kind and attentive relation, and his 
servants a humane and generous master." 

This is no heightened panegyric, but a few lines simply in- 
scribed to his memory by one who knew him well and' now 
deeply and affectionately deplores his loss. "But his ispirit has 
fled up to the stars, from whence it came, and his warm heart 
with all its generous and open vessels is compressed with a 
clod of the valley.^' 

"Then let me pause, and think ; alas ! how soon 
The hand of that same God may sweep me down, 

Although with health I'm blest; 'but Man is dust;' 
Some pitying bard may say, — "his spirit's gone."

When General LaEayette visited Eichmond in 1824 he visited 
the "Old Stone House," then nearly a century old. He was 
entertained there with lemonade and cake. The Baby LaPayette 
(with his mother) was present, and Avas fondled by the General — 
whence the Baby's name. 

SKETCH. 

Jacob Gait Ege, during thei years of his active life, was a 
very energetic man in various business ventures, as builder, 
speculator in City Lots and in the carrying on of a Cooperage 
Factory — a business handed down from his grandfather, Jacob. 
A Court Eecord, March 1st, 1804, names "Tom Adams, a Col- 
ored Boy, as apprenticed to Jacob G. Ege to learn the Cooper 
trade.'^ 

Diana Morgan, the mother of Jane B. Morgan, the wife of 
Jacob Gait Ege, deeded to said Jane B. Ege, January 18th. 
1819, one-half acre of land, 'on G and 22nd Street, namely. 
Lot 78, on original Eichmond plan, together with the man- 
sion house, buildings and appurtenances thereunto belonging, 
for the sum of one dollar ($1.00) in hand paid by them — the 
same to be their property and home, unincumbered by leans, 
trust or sale, as long as either said Jane B. Ege or Jacob Gait 
Ege, her husband lived — after which it was to be sold and the 
proceeds divided equally among all living children. — Witnesses, 
F. Wicker and Samuel G. Adams. — Chancery Court Records,

estate, and tlie Commission to approve his accounts was ap- 
pointed November, 1833. 

This would indicate that he outlived his wife. 

William Palmer, who married a daughter of John Enders, 
and granddaughter of Jacob Ege, Sr., purchased this property 
at the sale, and owned it for several years. It is now the prop- 
erty of the Roman Catholic Church and the Mansion House is 
the Home of a Sisterhood of the Church. The entire property 
is now surrounded by a high brick wall.

SKETCH. 

The recent death (1903) of James Lawrence Ege will recall 
to the minds of the oldest citizens of Eichmond that he was the 
last living male descendant of the name in our city, and a great- 
grandson of Jacob Ege, the early settler and builder of the his- 
toric "Old Stone House" in 1738-39. His parents were Jacob 
Gait Ege and Jane Brown Morgan Ege. He was one of a 
family of eight children, but the last one born in the "Old 
Stone House," August 25th, 1816. The friends and associates 
•of the Ege family were of the very first families of Virginia, 
and their old home was always the scene of hospitality, mirth 
and gayety in those early days. The celebrities of the day and 
time often visited the old home, 'tho' so humble and unpreten-

tious in appearance. James Monroe was an intimate friend of 
the family. General LaFayette, in 1824, was entertained be- 
neath its roof. The youngest of the eight children mentioned, 
an infant in that year, was named LaFayette. Mr. James 
Lawrence Ege was for many years an expert Jeweler, and mem- 
ber of the firm of Mitchell & Tyler, nntil its dissolution. He 
lived to a ripe old age, being in his eighty-eighth year, and 
was buried in the family lot, in the Cemetery of Old St. John's 
Church, where, also, the vault of the Weymouth family, of Ege 
connection, is situated. 

Mr. Ege was a type of the true old Virginia gentleman, a 
kind and generous friend and a devoted father. His wife pre- 
ceded him in death, June 6th, 1894. 

Among the descendants of the well-known Jacob Ege, Sr., 
are many of the first families of Eichmond and vicinity to-day, 
and esteemed throughout the land. — From an Obituary, writ- 
ten soon after Mr. Ege's death, Fehruary 21tli, 1903.

SKETCH. 



John Brown Ege for a number of years was a resident of 
Petersburg, Virginia. During that time he was prominent in 
the community, holding an important position in the affairs of 
the city. He conducted a large Printing and Publishing busi- 
ness, and, as Editor and Publisher of the Rural Messenger^ he 
wielded no small influence thereby for the general good, both 
civic and moral, in the community. The Editor of the Expon- 
ent, and a warm friead, spoke of him "as a good and noble 
man, with a warm and generous heart, and a friend to all with 
whom he came in daily contact, witnessing to his daily inter- 
course with friends, his urbanity to strangers, his jovial flow of 
soul in social converse and his goodness of heart to the poor 
and needy." His employees bore him the very tender tribute 
'of their estetem for him a^s a man of generous impulses, high 
sense of honor and unselfish disposition. His fellow-citizens 
in sincerity felt that they could illy spare so good and true a 
man from their midst.

HISTOEIC SKETCH. 

Between the years 1742-1768 there landed in Philadelphia, 
from Germany via. Rotterdam, quite a number of emigrants, of 
the apparently large family of Enders. Among these the name, 
Hans, Johannes (John), was most numerous. Among the 
younger ones (those under twenty-one years of age not being 
recorded) was a JSTicholas and a Christian Philip Enders. The 
Nicholas family settled in York County and the latter in Lan- 
caster Oourty, Pennsylvania. Nicholas must have been quite 
young, born about 1740, when he came with older ones of his 
family to this country, as he married about 1769, Susannah 
Fahnestock, of an older family of the name, also of the Eph- 
rata Settlement, in Lancaster County, of which family, also, a 
Borius Fahnestock married Elizabeth Enders, supposed to be a 

27 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

sister of Nicholas, or a cousiu of the Christian Philip Enders 
family, of Lancaster County. 

Nicholas and wife settled on a farm in Paradise Township, 
near the town of York, where they reared a family of nine chil- 
dren. 

The Pahnestock family is a very old one in Germany, and 
also among the early German settlers in this country. Among 
them have been since making this country their home, profes- 
sional men, successful merchants and bankers. 

A prominent family of the name resided in Gettysburg pre- 
vious to and after the Civil War for a time, and were the most 
prominent merchants there. There is also in New York quite 
an old well-established banking firm (P'ahnestock & Co.), dur- 
ing the Civil War a branch of Jay Cooke, Drexel & Co.'s famous 
financial power and influence. 

John Enders, the special subject of this sketch, was the oldest 
son of Nicholas and Susannah Fahnestock Enders. He was 
born July 16, 1776. He came to Eiclimond, Va., when quite a 
young man and engaged in the tobacco business. He began 
manufacturing in a small way. He was very successful and soon 
enlarged the business, shipping leaf tobacco and stems to Ger- 
many and other countries. The War of 1812 was a very severe 
blow, and the suspension of exports came near ruining him. 
After the war he rapidly recovered his fortune. By his natural 
tact and activity, foresight and honesty, he soon became the 
trusted Banker for the lower part of the City and County of 
Henrico, receiving money at interest and re- lending it liberally 
to his tobacco competitors and to those in other lines of business 
who were struggling to establish themselves. At one time he 
was the mainstay of twenty or twenty-five business concerns, 
and at 9 o'clock office hours of each morning he practically held 
a "levee'' for these dependants, when the occasion was an inter- 
esting sight. 

Mr. Enders corresponded in German, and this was a great 
aid in conducting his foreign business. The busy scene in his 
warehouses and on the docks which he owned indicated the won- 
derful energy and success of his constantly growing business. He 
was truly the pioneer in this now world-wide tobacco expansion 
in its trade. While superintending the erection of one of his 
numerous warehouses on the Eichmond dock, a ladder broke 
under his weight and he was killed in 1852, in the midst of his 
useful life. Although seventy-five years old at the time, he was 
still vigorous and never more actively at work. As an active mem- 
ber of the Episcopal Church, he was the treasurer and the main- 
stay of Old St. John's Church Parish. He was probably the 
wealthiest man of his day in his city, if not in the State, and 

28

from his liberal dealing with his fellow-citizens, was beloved by 
all. He married, in 1814, Sarah Lambert Ege, daughter of 
Samuel and Elizabeth Walker Ege, and granddaughter of Jacob 
Ege, of the "Old Stone House," who survived him but four 
months and seven days. A monument marks their resting place 
in the Cemetery of Old St. John^s Church.

SKETCH. 

William Palmer spent his youth at "Granite Hill," his 
father^s country house on the Frederick Turnpike, one and 
a-half miles from Ellicott's Mills, Maryland, now "Ellicott City." 
He was educated at "Rock Hill Academy" in the above-men- 
tioned i^lace. He first engaged in business in Baltimore with 
The Robert Sinclair Company. While still a youth, he came to 
Richmond and established an Agricultural and Implement Fac- 
tory, and dealt in seeds and farmers' supplies. 

Mr. Palmer married, 1883, Elizabeth Walker, oldest daughter 
of John Enders, Sr. He was an active and influential citizen, 
and prospered in all his business undertakings. He opened the 
books for subscription to the Richmond and Danville Railroad 
(now the Southern Railway), became a large stockholder and 
was for many years Vice-President and Acting President of the 
road. He was also a Director in th Mutual Assurance Society, 
and the Fire and Marine Insurance Co., both old and prosperous 
companies, the first being for one hundred and seventeen and 
the latter seventy-nine years in successful operation. He was 
also a Director in the Bank of the Commonwealth, but which 
■did not survive the losses of the War, 1861-1865. Mr. Palmer 
died in 1870, leaving a large family.

SKETCH. 

Ool. William H. Palmer, a brief sketch of whose active and 
influential life is here recorded, was a grandson of John Enders, 
Sr., and Sarah Lambert Ege. He was born in Eichmond, and 
all his life interests have been centered in his native city. He 
is a thoroughly representative citizen, and his influence has al- 
ways been exerted for the best interests, both civil and moral, in 
and for the welfare of the community, during all tlie years of 
his active life, now rounded out to the ripened age of three- 
quarters of a century He is still active in business, being 
largely identified in the Banking, Insurance and Eailroad in- 
terests of his city. His large and respected family are mostly 
settled around him, in happy and genial accord. 

In his young and vigorous years he obeyed the call of his 
native State, with numerous others of his family and kinship, 
to take up arms, and wear them through the various conflicts of 
the Civil War. 

War Eecoed.

SKETCH. 

Charles T. Palmer is a prosperous farmer in ISTelson County, 
Virginia. He was a member of Co. 2, Cutshaw's Battery, Rich- 
mond Howitzers, and served in C. S. A. through the War, until 
Appomattox. 

An historic sketch of Mary Draper Inglis, above mentioned, 
is vforthy of record as an example of dauntless courage, heroic 
endurance, mid Indian captivity, escape, hardship and journey- 
ing back to safet}?-, freedom and family as follows: 

Mary Draper Inglis was the daughter of George and Eleanor 
Draper, who emigrated to America in 1731. Wlien Mary was 

32 



VIRGINIA BRANCH. 

eight years of age her parents settled in the Valley of Virginia, 
where she grew to wonianliood Strong and vigorous, she could 
spring into the saddle 'on her horse from the ground unaided, 
and could leap a ditch or fence as readily as her brother. This 
early physical training made possible the terrible experience and 
journey a few years later, in which her life was constantly at 
stake, and her woman's strength was pitted against the most 
terrible odds. 

At ^sixteen, with her mother and brother, she went with a 
pioneer band, led by Thomas Inglis and his three sons, William, 
Matthew and John, to Southwest, Virginia, where they formed 
the first settlement west of the Allegheny Mountains, then 
named "Draper's Meadows," where the town of Blacksburg now 
stands. Mary, having married one of the Inglis sons, was the 
first white bride west of the mountains. Thomas Inglis had 
been a w'ealthy merchant of London, trading in his own ships, 
but his property being confiscated for political reasons, he came 
to America to iDuild a home in its wilderness. 

Five years passed. Everyone in the new settlement was pros- 
perous, and the Indians friendly, until suddenly on the 8th of 
Au.gust, 1755, ■ the day before Braddock's defeat, a party of 
Shewane'es from beyond the Ohio Eiver, fell upon the settlement, 
burned their buildings and killed, wounded, or captured every 
Fioul present. Mrs. Mary Inglis, after seeing her mother toma- 
hawked, was carried into captivity, beyond the Ohio, with her 
two small children, Thomas and George, and some other set- 
tlers. A month later they reached the Shawnee village, when 
the captives were divided and scattered, Her helpless children 
were torn from her, to her heart-breaking grief. Thomas being 
sent to Detroit and George farther into the West, and Mrs. In- 
glis to "Big Bone Lick.'" Bocne County, Kentucky, to assist in 
making salt for the tribe. She was thus left alone among sav- 
ages, hundreds of miles from other white settlements, with but 
one 'old German -^.TOman, who had been previously captured in 
Pennsylvania. To try to escape seemed to invite almost certain 
death, but she preferred this risk to the fate that awaited her, 
and the brave-hearted young wife determined to make the at- 
tempt. Her German companion agreed to go with her. which 
they risked at the first opportune moment, each with a blanket 
and a tomahawk. They aimed for the Ohio Eiver, which they 
then made their line of direction, but often forced to leave it by 
many devious paths, obstructed by other rivers flowing into it, 
whose course they had to folloW' until they could cross it, and 
then reverse their course, thus doubling the distance of their 
perilous and toilsome journey. They subsisted on grapes, nuts 

33 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

and berries, and often on the tender inner bark of roots of 
plants pulled up. Through wilderness, storm and cold, priva- 
tion, suffering and exposure, this fearful and constantly dan- 
gerous journey was pursued. Mrs. Inglis was soon compelled 
to escape her German Avoman, who had become an encumbrance, 
and a threatened source of a new danger and death, in which 
fortune favored her by finding an abandoned canoe, which en- 
abled her to put the river between them. Then, alone, she toiled 
on, under constantly increasing privations — her clothing torn 
and worn to shreds, her moccasins worn out, and her shelter 
from storm or by night under some shelving rock or hollow log. 
At last she found herself at "Anvil Eock," which she supposed 
to be about fifteen miles from her home. It rose precipitately 
for two hundred and eighty feet, its base in the water. It was 
now the latter part of November. Snow had fallen, and it was 
bitterly cold. She stepped into the icy stream, hoping to pass 
around its base, but the water was too deep. She could get 
nothing to eat and no shelter. Wet and cold she threw herself 
down upon a rock, and lay there more dead than alive until 
morning, when hope revived. Her limbs were so swollen she 
could hardly stand, as well as faint for want of food. But the 
thought of at last being so near home buoyed her up, and she 
essayed the task of scaling the cliff. It was the most desperate 
hour of her struggle. At sunset of that terrible day of hope and 
effort she passed the cliff and came to a cultivated field, which 
she recognized as that of a friend and neighbor, Adam Harmon, 
who was harvesting his corn. She sv/ooned at his feet. Belief 
was at hand. A few days tender nursing in his cabin enabled 
her to reach home, where husband and brother gave her a joy- 
ous welcome, who had escaped the massacre, by being absent in 
a distant field, five months before. It was thirteen years before 
her son Thomas was located and restored to his parents. He 
had become a veritable Indian, and was with difficulty prevailed 
upon to leave his tribe. George died soon after being taken from 
his mother. Mrs. Inglis, after her return, had other thrilling 
experiences, but lived to the age of eighty-five in a little cabin 
near Eadford, which her husband erected in 1756, just after her 
return from captivity. The cabin still stands, the oldest house 
west of the Alleghenies. In a cemetery nearby, beside her hus- 
band, sleeps Mary Inglis, whose courage, heroism and endurance 
entitled her to a high place among the world's brave women. 

On September 29tii, 1909, in Fairview Cemetery, at Eadford, 
Montgomery County, Va., tliere was unveiled by Mary Draper 
Inglis, a great-great-granddaughter, a monument to the noble 
woman whose name she bears.

VIRGINIA BRANCH. 

The Monument is twenty-three feet high, in commemoration 
of Mrs. Inglis, twenty-three years 'of age at the time of her re- 
markahle experience. It was designed and built by Captain 
William Inghs, a descendant, and bears the following in- 
scription : 

"Mary Draper Inglis, born in Philadelphia in 1733, died at 
Inghs Ferry, Va., in 1815. The first white bride married west 
of the Allegheny Mountains. Captured by Indians in 1755, at 
Draper's Meadows, near Blacksburg, Va. Escaping from her 
captors, she made her way home in winter, alone, some eight 
hundred miles, through a trackless wilderness, subsisting on 
nuts and roots for forty days. No greater exhibition of heroism, 
courage and endurance is recorded in the Annals of frontier his- 
tory. To commemorate her noble character and wonderful hbro- 
ism, this Monument is erected by her descendants, of the stones 
from the chimney of the cabin in which she lived and died after 
return from <i^^tiYitj:'~Condemed Account from that of Will- 
mm E. Curtis, in The Star and Chicago Herald.

LITERAEY AND LIFE SKETCH OF 
JAMEiS DABNEY McCABE. 

Born in Richmond, Va,, July 30, 1841. He was the son of 
Rev. Dr. James Dabney McCabe, a prominent clergyman of the 
Episcopal Church, who was twice elected Bishop in his Church, 
but declined to serve. His mother was Josephine Pearson 
Auguste, whose father was a Frenchman from Pointe au Pietre, 
Guadaloupe. Rev. Dr. John Collins McCabe, of the same 
Church, was his uncle, and the Rev. Charles Cardwell McCabe, 
of the Methodist Church, was also a relative. The subject of 
this sketch was educated at Virginia Military Institute at Lex- 
ington, but was compelled, because of failing health, to give up 
his studies beforei graduation. A little while after this, and 
before twenty years of age, he opened a school for boys at Vicks- 
burg, Miss., which was very successful until the Civil War 
caused its close. Returning to his native city, he engaged in 
editorial and literary work for magazines and newspapers. 

August 6th, 1863, Mr. McCabe married Mary Shepherd Cope- 
land, granddaughter of Dr. John Dove, of Richmond, in Old St. 
John's Church, in which her family had been pewholders from 
its foundation. 

Mr. McCabe's health, never strong, gave way under the stress 
and privations of the war and the strenuous blockade. Food 
supplies were scanty, clothing and medicines exhausted. In this 
sad extremity of suffering and need, in October, 1864, with 
wife and young baby, they ran the blockade, crossing the coun- 
try to the Potomac River, and across this in an open rowboat 
into Maryland. Finally, after a seven-day trip of exposure, 
hardship and danger, they reached the home of his father in 

49 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

Baltimore. After the close of the war he sojourned for a time 
in Boston, New York, and Baltimore, and lastly in German- 
town, Philadelphia. He devoted his entire time to his chosen 
vocation, in editing magazines and writing for various publica- 
tions, books and travel, spending a part of almost every year in 
Europe. 

He wrote a life of General Robert E. Lee, illustrated by 
maps dra'vvn by his wife from the private war maps of the Gen- 
eral himself, and loaned by him for the purpose. This book 
had a marvelous success, passing through several editions, and 
several hundred thousands being sold. 

In 1874, having moved back to Baltimore, he met with the 
loss of his home by fire, including his fine library and all his 
valuable literary and business papers. He died in Philadelphia 
in 1882. 

Mr. McCabe's prolific pen produced quite a catalogue of val- 
uable works. Over two millions of his books have been sold. 
Among them may be specially noted the following : 

"Lives of Generals Robert E. Lee and 'Stonewall' Jackson.'' 

"Cross and Crown" (religious). 

"Great Fortunes." 

"Our Country and Its Resource's." 

'TLiights and Shadows of New York." 

"Lights and Shadows of Paris." 

"By-Paths of tlie Holy Land." 

"History of the World." 

"Centennial History of the United States."

Note. 

(501-). Gabriel Gait, 1st, was a soldier in the War of the Revolution. 
His wife inherited a portion of her father's original lots in the 
new City of Richmond. By mutual agreement of the heirs, pre- 
vious to division by deed, Gabriel Gait became possessor of the 
portion of said lots on which, by his gift or sale, was built the 
Mason's Hall in 1787, and said to be the first house built ex- 
clusively for Masonic meetings in America. This Hall remains 
practically unchanged from the day of its completion, one hun- 
dred and twenty-four years ago, and still in use by the Masonic 
Body. 

Mr. Gait was an active Mason in the Lodge at that time, and 
previous to the above date, in 1780-'83, was Master of Williams- 
burg Lodge, No. 6. 

In October, 1909, it was the privilege of the author to attend 
the 122nd Anniversary of Richmond-Randolph Lodge, and where 
it was also his pleasure when called on to make an address in 
this Ancient Hall. 

Of the children of Gabriel and Elizabeth Ege Gait, Elizabeth 
and Maria Dorothea, only, were married, and left heirs.

highly esteemed and beloved in the community of the old Vir- 
ginia City of Williamsburg and vicinity in which they dwelt, 
and left their benison of influence and good works. Miss Sallie 
Maria was the last survivor, and passed to her rest and reward 
in a ripe old age, mourned by the whole conununity and a large 
circle of relatives. 

Note. 

"William Gait, the first, and Dr. John Minson, 1st, Gait, the 
sixth child of Samuel Gait, the first, were half brothers by dif- 
ferent mothers. Their sons, respectively, Gabriel and Dr. 
Alexander Dickie Gait, were half first cousins. Dr. Alexander 
Dickie Gait and his wife, Maria Dorothea Gait, the daughter 
of Gabriel, bore this relationship — viz., half first cousins once 
removed. 

Further references to this special family will appear on later 
pages. 

The history of the Gait family of Eastern Virginia is one 
full of historic interest. 

This family from early Colonial days has been so doubly con- 
nected and inter-related, even from their earliest marriages in 
this country, that it would be a loss to the History and Gene- 
alogy of these various relationships not to incorporate it in this 
immediate sequel to the Genealogy of the Virginia Ege-Galt 
branch. 

Line of Descent. 

John and William Gait, Covenanters, of Ayrshire, Scotland, 
after the Battle of "Bothwell Brig," in 16,79, fled to America, 
a price having been put upon their heads, and thus outlawed, 
because they would not repudiate "The Covenant," nor 
acknowledge that the Battle of "Bothwell Brig" was rebellion. 

They landed first in South Carolina with Lord Cardross. 
Later, one of these brothers, supposedly John, and a son or 
nephew, Samuel, settled in Eastern Virginia, near Hampton.

William Eichard Gait, their father, settled in JSTorfolk, Vir-

writer and educator ; was skilled in many languages and Masonic 
lore. He wrote a "History of Masonry" of all countries when 
he was seventy years of age. He died in Norfolk in 1892.

SKETCH. 

Dr. John Minson Gait, 1st, was born in Williamsburg, the 
ancient capital of Virginia. He was educated at William and 
Mary College and in medicine at Edinburg and Paris. He was 
attending physician and surgeon at the Williamsburg Asylum 
for the Insane for many years. He had charge of the sick 
and wounded soldiers at Yorktown during the Revolution; was 
a member of the Committee of Safety at Williamsburg in 1774; 
a vestryman of Bruton Church; treasurer of Williamsburg 
Masonic Lodge, 'No. 6, in 1772, '73 and '74. He was also 
chairman of the Board of Trustees of William and Mary Col- 
lege. 

Besides these various positions of usefulness he was most 
prominent in his profession in that early day, as well as in 
every good word and work for the betterment of the community 
in which he lived and labored to the end of his active life. 

Dr. John Minson Gait, 4th, his son, followed with great suc- 
cess his honored father. He was also educated at William and 

65 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

Mary College. He began his medical study and training under 
his father; finished and graduated at Jefferson College, Phila- 
delphia. He devoted his entire professional life to the study 
and treatment of the insane, and became a very distinguished 
alienist. He succeeded his father, in 1841, as the chief physician 
to the asylum and continued his interest and work there until 
the U. S. army during the Civil War took possession of Williams- 
burg and the asylum in 1862. 

The shock of this sudden deprivation of his life work and 
love, and the attendant circumstances, broke his heart and 
caused his immediate death in the forty-fourth year of his age. 

Much could be said of his great influence in his community, 
of liis great fame and skill as a physician, and especially of his 
great success in knowledge and gentle treatment of the insane, 
Dt. John Minson Gait, 4th, brother and sisters, were all unmar- 
ried, and all were remarkable for intellect, culture and influence 
in their community, and thus greatly esteemed and beloved. 

The last survivor was Miss Sallie Maria Gait. 

During lier later years a visitor and a writer called on her 
at the old ancestral home and penned for some newspaper of 
that day the following quaint article, signing himself as "Carl 
von Williamsburg": 

"There is in the possession of Miss Sallie Maria Gait an old 
family portrait representing four generations, viz., the great- 
grandmother, the grandmother, a mother, and son. The first is 
Mrs. Jacob Ege, Sr., who was Miss Maria Dorothea Scheerer, 
who crossed the ocean with her father from Hesse-Cassel, Ger- 
many; landed in Philadelphia in 1738; thence at once to Vir- 
ginia, when our Dominion's "Proud City of the Seven Hills" 
was in its infancy. Her husband built the fi.rst house in the 
newly-planned city, known as the "Old Stone House." The 
second figure in the painting is her daughter, Mrs. Gabriel Gait; 
the third her grand-daughter, Mrs. Gabriel Gait Williamson, 
and the fourth her great-grandson, Frederick Williamson. The 
two old ladies wear high white caps, profusely decorated with 
frills, and pure white scarfs crossed upon the breasts. Mrs. 
Williamson is represented as a bright, merry-faced girl, dressed 
in a short-waisted frock, so fashionable in that day. The boy, 
a fine infant, greatly resembling the babies of the present day, 
holds in his hand a yellow bird. The picture is quaint, inter- 
esting and beautiful. The charming lady to whom this por- 
traiture belongs lives surrounded with memories of the past, 
such as this, which present generations axe so apt to neglect, 
as without value or interest. 

"But of all her rich possessions in this line she prizes this 

66 



VIRGINIA BRANCH. 

portrait, as it keeps before her eyes the images of those whose 
blood flows in her veins." 

This article, copied by the author from an almost obliterated 
clipping, by the aid of a glass, and being without date, must 
have ante-dated by some years the death of Miss Gait, 1880. 
It was also the good fortune of the author to visit recently, 
1909, the ancient capital of Virginia, to enter this "Old Gait 
Home" of more than a century's age, still in possession of the 
Gait family, and to view the old portraits and the whole ancient 
setting and furniture, just as they have stood during the years 
that have flown. It was as if one had suddenly stepped out 
of this modern day and surroundings into the simplicity and 
beauty of colonial days long gone. T. P. E. 

Note. 

A very remarkable and most interesting fact in the history 
of this truly remarkable family is seen in the oft-repeated 
names, so beautifully perpetuated, thereby linking in Christian 
names and loving remembrance the different generations 
through so long a period, and with increased distinction as 
thus handed down — a rare example of family interest in these 
modern days, and worthy of imitation, in contrast to the many 
meaningless names so oft inflicted on the younger genera- 
tions. 

The name John Minson was that of an influential colonial 
settler of Eastern Virginia and a respected friend and neighbor 
of the early Gait settlers. Thus esteemed, his name has been 
perpetuated in no less than six generations, four of whom were 
highly honored physicians of note. The name "Dickie," appear- 
ing in five generations, is also worthy of note, as that probably 
of some family tie of which we have not found in this research. 

The name Alexander was that of the father, whose daughter, 
Judith Craig, became the wife of John Minson Gait, the first, 
and so appears in seven generations, two of whom also were 
physicians, as well as his two sons. 

The whole number of physicians in the family were four- 
teen. Few family lines from father to son, either of early or 
modern times, can boast of so many famous physicians and 
surgeons. The first asylum built exclusively for the care of 
the insane in this country was the one built in Williamsburg in 
1773. 

James Gait was the first superintendent of this asylum. 
During the War of the Eevolution he was an officer in the 
army. When the war was over he resumed his position in the 
asylum. For eighty-nine years, with an interval of only eleven 

6 67 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

years short of a century, the physicians of this family consecu- 
tively were associated with the care of the asylum. They were 
the first and foremost in the adoption of the humane and gentle 
treatment of the insane in this country — a fact only paralleled 
by that of the famous Tukes family of England.

SKETCH. 

Mrs. Caroline Eandolph Lambert Harrison, widow of the late 
William Mortimer Harrison, who lived to the great age of ninety- 
three years, was the oldest daughter of General William Lam- 
bert, and a great-granddaughter of Jacob Ege, of the "Old Stone 
House." She was a woman of rare mental endowments and cul- 
tivation, gentle and considerate, added to great personal charm 
of manner and beauty, rarely seen at her age, all of which ren- 
dered her aittractive to all who came in contact with her. She 
was noted for her charitable work, in addition to her great inter- 
est in the remarkable work of Ramabais Mission for the uplift- 
ing of India. She worked personally for it almost up to the 
time of her death, having collected and sent over $600 for that 
Mission. 

During the latter portion of her life many troubles, sorrows 
and trials befell her, and, last of all, almost total blindness, all 
of which she bore with true Christian patience and resignation. 
She had filled so large a place for so many years in her com- 
munity that her departure left a void, not soon, if ever, to be 
filled.

INTEODUCTORY SKETCH OF GEORGE-MICHAEL 
EGE, SECOND SON OF THE FAMILY, LANDING IN 
PHILADELPHIA IN 1738, AND THE HEAD OF THE 
PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

I 2. George-Michael Ege, though bu;t twenty-three years of age 
on coming to this country, evidently had the military spirit, 
and had no doubt served a period of his young days as a soldier 
in his native land. 

He answered this spirit and call in behalf of his newly- 
adopted country during the French and Indian Wars of 1756 and 
'57, and served as a soldier in the "First Independent Troop of 
Horse" of Philadelphia. Historically this was the parent organ- 
ization of the now celebrated ''First City Troop" of Philadel- 
phia. He was then married and with a young family. 

George-Michael Ege did not long survive this service. He 
died in January, 1759. And, as quoted from a note concerning 
his death, in the Records of St. Michael's Lutheran Church, 
Germantown — "after suffering great bodily and mental weak- 
ness, aged forty-five years." 

He died at his home in Germantown, where according to his 
will he owned property, as well as in the "Northeim Liberties" 

Philadelphia. In said will, he left all his property to his wife 
during her life, and then to his two sons George and Michael 
in equal division. — Will Book L, page 214, Record Office, City 
Hall, Philadelphia. 

The fact of the mention of only the two sons in the will indi- 
cates the early death of the other children, even where death 
dates are not noted, unless in the case of the oldest son Jacob, 
of whom there is a tradition, that he left home as a very young 
man before his father's death, and was lost sight of ever after. 

His two sons — George and Michael, at his death were but 
eleven and six years of age, respectively. 

In the previous year, 1758, their Aunt Elizabeth Holz had 
become the wife of Baron Von Stiegel. The widow with her 
two boys was induced to make their home with them at Brick- 
erville (now Elizabeth), Lancaster County. 

Note. 

A number of years ago there was published the death notice 
of a Jacob Ege, who had died in the South, leaving great wealth 

71 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

in mines, and advertising for heirs, — but none were found to 
claim tlie inheritance. 

The boys were practically adopted by the Baron, then in his 
prosperous days. They were brought up by him, educated and 
taught the iron business. 

The after history of this eventful time, both in the life of the 
baron and his Ege proteges, will fully follow in proper sequence. 

Note. 

In 1769, ''A will of Mrs. Mary Matison, widow, and sister of 
Anna Catharine Holz Ege, and Elizabeth Holz Stiegel, mentions 
bequests both of property and money to her nephews George and 
Michael Ege." 

It is of interest from the same will to note how early the Holz 
family made use of the Anglicised name. Wood. "In this will 
was also mentioned the names of brothers, Andrew, George, and 
John Wood, (deceased). Also sisters, one, who married a Gar- 
rett, and one who married a Simon; a nephew, Michael Henry 
Wood ; a niece, his sister, Mary Wood ; a niece, Margaret Garrett, 
and a niece, Elizabeth Simon. Also children of her brother, 
Andrew Wood, viz., George, Andrew, Elizabeth, John and 
Hannah Wood. And as executors, her brothers, Andrew and 
George Wood." — Will Boole 0, 'page 341, Record Officer, City

Note. 



This first ancestress of the Pennsylvania branch of the Ege 
family in this country was buried in the quaint family burial lot, 
on the Boiling Spriaigs Estate. The lot was enclosed by a stone 
wall, the entrance being through a solid iron doorway and iron 
door, which were made at the furnace of her son Michael. 

_ The stone that marks her last resting place bears this inscrip- 
tion, viz : 

"In memory of 

Catharine Ege 

Mother of 

George and Michael Ege, 

who departed this Ufe, 

November ye, 6th 1786, 

in the 76th year of her Age." 

Epitaph. 

" Stop Passenger and weep ! 
But not for Me ; 
Lament thy own Misery ! 
As I am now, so must thou be. 
Therefore, prepare and follow Me." 

MEMORIAL SKETCH. 
1911. 

The quaint Old Burial Lot, at Boiling Springs, Pa., Its stone walls, 
with iron frame and door, made at the ancestral furnace, one hun- 
dred and twenty-five years ago, had yielded to the ravages of time 
and vandal, rendering it a desolate ruin. The iron door, which had 
long suextered it from unhallowed intrusion, had been wrenched 
from its iron frame, and stolen. The tomb-stone of the early an- 
cestress alone remained, but had long since fallen to the ground, 
and ceased to mark the spot of Mother Earth, where slumber the 
remains of this maternal head of the family name in this country, 
and was leaned against a crumbling wall, — other stones had goDe 
to decay and some had been carried away. 

From this picture of desolation, "the very stones seemed to cry out 
Reproach" for this sad spectacle of neglect. The old estate held for 
three generations, had passed from the last owner of the family 
name for fifty years, and so there seemed to be no one to heed that 
cry. 

To one in the fourth generation from that early ancestress, who 
recently made a casual visit to view the aucestral homestead and 
its interesting surroundings, that "voice" from those crumbling walls 
made a special appeal. 

Sequel. 

The new, well proportioned and re-built walls, the old tombstone 
re-dressed, and with other tablets, securely built in the face of the 
wall, new iron gate, and iron tablet thereon, form the "Restored 
Memorial" aud the answer to that voice.

EGE GENEALOGY. 



HISTORIC SKETCH. 



This sketch of the life and times of George Ege, which are so 
.nseparably associated with his most active and successful career 
in iron industries, and in which he was a leading Iron Master of 
his day for many years, seems best here as it must necessarily 
claim a large part thereof. 

Coming under the wise care and guardianship of his uncle, 
Baron Henry William Von Stiegel, at an early age, and by whose 
scholarly aid in his education George Ege imbibed the spirit of 
this important industry, by which he had been surrounded — 
when old enough he began the active preparation and experience 
for the business of his life, at Elizabeth Furnace, Brickerville, 
Lancaster County, and Charming Forge, Berks County, under his 
uncle. 

In 1763, Baron Stiegel and Charles Stedmam purchased 
Charming Forge, then first so named by Baron Stiegel because 
of its picturesque location. 

It was situated on Tulpehocken Creek, built by John George 
Nikoll a hammersmith, and Michael Miller in 1749. It was then 
known as Tulpehocken "Eisen Hammer," Pemnsylvania German 
for "forge." 

In 1772, because of his new enterprise at Manheim, the Baron 
leased Charming Forge to George Ege and George Zantzinger. 

The first venture, however, by George Ege on his own account, 
was the purchase in 1769, being tlie>n just of age, of Berkshire 
Furnace in Heidelburg Township, from the widow of William 
Bird, from whom the town of Birdsboro took its name. 

In 1774, George Ege bought out the Stedman half interest in 
Charming Forge for eight hundred and thirty-eight pounds, — • 
and nine months later bought the remaiming half interest of the 
Baron for sixteen hundred and sixty-three pounds. 

On a commanding elevation, overlooking the beautiful lake 
formed by the damming of the creek for the use of the works, he 
chose the site for the erection of a home for his bride, which he 
built in 1777. It was built of native blue limestone, — a large amd 
substantial mansion, in Colonial style of architecture. It is still 
in fairly good condition, though untenanted when seen recently 
by the writer — lately vacated by the widow of George E. Taylor, 
— the last of the name in a family lime, who in succession had 
been the superintendents and managers of the works, and had 
become the owners of Charming Forge after the death of George 
Ege. 

An older Eeading furnace on French Creek, and a Mary Ann 
Furnace in Berks County, which had been in existence from 1762, 
was also owned and operated by George Ege and George Ross. 

76 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

In 1793, George Ege built the new Heading furnace at Eobe- 
sonia, the largest and finest of them all, and a near neighbor to 
the Berkshire furnace of his first ownership. This Eeading- 
Eobesonia furnace is situated about two miles east of Womelsdorf, 
which is about midway between it and Charming Forge. 

Here he also built a new mansion in 1807, one of the finest 
Colonial buildings of its day. It still stands in perfect condition, 
in beautiful surroundings and is visited from far and near, ad- 
mired for its fine proportions without, and woodwork of finest 
handicraft within. On the newel post of the handsome Colonial 
stair-case is a silver plate with the monogram G. E. E., George 
and Elizabeth Ege. 

This was their home while they lived, and since has been the 
home of successive superintendents of the works. 

On the site of the original furnace, a portion of the old wall 
still retained, stands the modern and most completely equipped 
furnace in this country — now known as the Eobesonia, and with 
a capacity of two hundred and fifty tons of pig iron every twenty- 
four hours. It is operated by The Eobesonia Iron Company, 
Limited. 

In 1804, George Ege built Schuylkill forge, at Port Clintotn, 
Schuylkill County. Joseph Old, grandson of Baron Stiegel, who 
had married Eebecca Ege, his daughter, lived at the forge and 
was its manager. 

This completes the extensive chain of iron operations, of his 
remarkable activity and ability, before, through and after the war 
of the E'evolution. Around these prominent operations he added 
large estates of land — at Charming Forge 4,000 acres; at Bead- 
ing furnace 6,000 acres, and at Schuylkill furnace 6,000 acres, 
and four large farms in Tulpehocken and Heidelburg Townships 
of 1,000 acres. In 1824, about the time of his retiring from 
active business, the assessed value of his real and personal estate 
was $380,000. 

Withal this, he was not indifierent to the calls of civic duty, 
nor for the interests of the community in which he lived. During 
the Eevolution he was an ardent patriot, a friend and helper of 
General Washington. In 1783, he was a member of the General 
Assembly of the Commonwealth. In 1791, he was appointed one 
of the associate judges of Berks County, under the Constitution 
of 1790, and served continually with marked ability for twenty- 
eight years, until 1818, when he resigned the position to devote 
himself exclusively to his extensive business interests. He died at 
his home at the Eeading furnace in 1829, aged 81 years and 9 
months, and his remains were interred and now rest in the Luth- 
eran Church Cemetery at Womelsdorf. The burial lot is sub-

stantially enclosed and kept in order, for which a perpetually 
endowed fund was provided. There rest also the kindred of the 
next two generations. 



During these eventful years there were associated a group of 
men in various ways of friendship and busitoess relations through 
their varied iron operations, viz : The Grubbs, Jacobs, Olds, 
Birds and Colemans, mention of whom deserves a place in this 
history. 

Peter Grubb, St., was the discoverer of the immense and valu- 
able iron ore hills at Cornwall, Lebanon County, which have been 
mined comtinuously for nearly two hundred years. He is said to 
have built a bloomery, or forge, near these mines as early as 1735, 
and the first furnace on the Cornwall site in 1743. In 1785, 
Eobert Coleman, Sr., bought from his sons, Clirtis and Peter 
Grubb. Jr., one-sixth of Cornwall furnace and mines^ — These two 
sons were colonels in the War of the Eevolution. Later Robt. 
Coleman, Sr., secured four additional sixths, and George Ege, the 
remaining sixth, for the use of his new Reading furnace, and 
which in the final disposition of his estate he assigned "m per- 
petuo," to the use and interest of the said furnace, for as much 
■ore as one furnace on this site could use. This provision has con- 
tinued to this day, 1910, through all the changes and enlarge- 
ments that have taken place, but still one furnace, and now 
operated by the Eobesonia Iron Company, Limited. The real 
estate being owned by Coleman descendants. 

James Old, bom in Wales in 1730, came to this country about 
1750, and soon secured employment as a forgeman at the Windsor 
furnaces. Being shrewd and energetic he prospered, and in 1765 
built Pool forge, on a branch of Conestoga Creek, near the Wind- 
sor furnaces. He married Margaretta, daughter of Gabriel 
Davies, of Lancaster County. 

Eobert Coleman, Sr., was born ISTov. 4, 1748, near Castle-Fin, 
Donegal County, Ireland. He came to this country at 16 years of 
age, and found employment with James Old in his furnaces. In 
1773, he married Ann Old, the daughter. 

In 1775, Eobert Coleman, Sr.. became the owner of Elizabeth 
furnace at Brickerville, built by Baron Stiegel in 1757, on the 
site of another built by Jacob "Huber in 1750, whose daughter 
Elizabeth was the Baron's first wife, and for whom he named the 
furnace. This furnace which was large and successful from its 
beginning continued in operation for one hundred years, ceasing 
in 1857. The stone mansion built there by the Baron for liis resi- 
dence still stands in good preservation, and is owned by G. Daw- 
son Coleman.

PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

Eobert Coleman, Sr., died in Lancaster, Pa., and is buried 
there, 

Cyrus Jacobs, of Welsh parentage, born 1761, was also in the 
employ of James Old, and married his daughter Margaretta. He 
also became an iron master, owner and operator. He died at 
White Hall, Pa., in 1830. 

William Old, son of James, married Elizabeth Stiegel, daughter 
of the Baron and Elizabeth Huber. Their son Joseph Old, mar- 
ried Eebecca Ege, only daughter of George Ege, and was the 
manager of Schuylkill forge. 

As a fitting end to this historic sketch, the writer, in his re- 
searches found an interesting letter, of which the following is the 
copy. 

From this communication, addressed by George Washington 
to General Wayne, it appears he was in Heidelberg Township in 
the Fall of 1777. He was entertained at the home of George 
Ege. 

Sept. 17, 1777. 
Heading Furnace, 6 o'clock P. M, 

Dear Sir. I have this instant received yours of half past 3 
o'clock A. M. Having written to you already to move forward 
upon the enemy, I have but little to add. Generals Maxwell and 
Porter are ordered to do the same, being at Pott's Forge. I 
could wish you and those generals to act in conjunction, to make 
your advance more formidable, but I would not too much time 
delayed on this account. I shall follow as speedily as possible 
with jaded men — Some may probably go off immediately if I find 
they are in condition for it. The horses are all most all out upon 
patrol. Cartridges have been ordered for you. Give me the 
earliest information of everything interesting, and of your moves, 
that I may govern mine by them. 

The cutting off the enemy's baggage would be a great matter. 
Yours sincerely. 
Gen. a. Wayne. Geo. Washington. 

George Ege personally interceded with General Washington in 
behalf of the Hessian prisoners, who were confined in a stockade 
on the mountain side near Reading, where they were suffering 
from the exposure and cold of winter. Accordingly a large num- 
ber of them were paroled, and given employment both by Baron 
Stiegel and George Ege, in mining ore and in the forests cutting 
wood and burning charcoal for furnace use. Many, if not most of 
these Hessians, never returned to their country, but settled in 
Berks and adjoining counties.

MICHAEL EGE, SR., MANSION 

Boiling- Spring's, Pa. 

Built 1795. 




BUILDING REMODELED 1865. 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

HISTORIC SKETCH OF MICHAEL EGE, 2nd, AND HIS 
lEON OPERATIONS. 

Michael Ege, 2nd, son of George-Michael and Anna Catarina 
Holz Ege, and brother of George, 1st, was born in Philadelphia 
in 1753. 

From the boy of six years of age, after the death of his father, 
he was brought np to young manhood at the home of his uncle, 
Baron Von Stiegel, under the same surroundings, care and tute- 
lage as that of his brother. 

From some incidental circumstances, we are able to account for 
his being in a locality, part of York County, Pa., and so near the 
portion of Cumberland County, where was to be the scene and 
activity of his life work, and also that he married there. Because 
of the intimate business relations of his uncle, and brother George, 
with Robert Coleman, Sr., Michael was induced to take employ- 
ment at Spring Forge, which was owned and operated by a man- 
ager for Eobt. Coleman, Sr. This forge was situated about mid- 
way between the towns of York and Hanover, York County. 
This forge remained in the Coleman family and was operated 
until about the beginning of the Civil War. It is now known as 
Spring Grove, and a large paper mill occupies the site of the 
forge — distant about twenty-five miles from Boiling Springs. 

There, when but four months older than nineteen, June 36, 
1772, he married Ann Dorothea Wolff, daughter of Peter Wolff, 
a German farmer of wealth and large land holdings. Soon after 
his marriage we find him at work at Boiling Springs, Cumber- 
land County, the seat of the Carlisle Iron Works — then a young 
and vigorous new industry. 

A history of this from small beginnings is full of interest, and 
includes the procuring of the various tracts of land forming the 
large estate. 

An early forge, built probably between 1750 and 1760, had evi- 
dently been located there, but by whom built and operated is not 
known but by tradition, and probably on land without grant or 
authority, — which was not a rare occurrence in those early days. 

Early iron industries and settlements at and near Mt. Holly 
gap were occasioned by reason of the fine water advantages and 
large deposits of iron ore in the vicinity. According to tradi- 
tion, a forge was built here as early as 1748, and probably a 
small furnace and the making of iron for some years. 

These early works were frequently re-modeled and rebuilt ac- 
cording to well known tradition. 

The accounts of early ownership are very conflicting both as to 
names and dates — one account states that the first patents 
granted by the Proprietaries, were taken by Charles McClure be-

fore the Eevolution. Again, in Eecord Book K, Vol. I, p. 136 — 
there is an account of an agreement made Dec. 8th, 1875, 
between Stephen Foulke and William Cox, Jr., to a partnership 
in a tract of land in Middleton To^vnship, of 563 acres, for 
building a furnace and saw mill. It is known that this firm 
built a furnace in this year and operated it for some years. June 
1st in 1803, it was sold by Sheriff Grason, as the property of 
Kettera, Jago, and Boyd for a debt of six thousand dollars, due 
Samuel Blackburn and Thomas Foster, executors of Stephen 
Foulke, deceased. At which sale it was bought by Michael 
Ege, Sr. 

Between these first and last dates, the following are of record : 
In a deed dated June 21st, 1780, (Bk. F, vol. I, p. 74) Dorcas 
Boyd, widow, Wm. Thompson, and Joseph Spear, Executors of 
John Boyd, deceased, conveyed to Stephen Foulke, of Hunting- 
don Township, York County, all that saw mill and lands thereto 
belonging, situate in Middleton Township, containing 1264 1-2 
acres, part of the estate of Thos. Cookson, granted him by war- 
rant and patent in 1762. Note. — (This was evidently a part of 
his grant, which was situated in the Township named by him as 
Cook Township, and later a part of the Pine Grove estate). 
Again, Stephen Foulke, by deed dated June 14, 1795, (Bk. L, 
Vol. I, p. 357), conveyed all that furnace, forge, grist and saw 
mill, with said timber land thereunto belonging, containing 
1264 1-2 acres in one survey in pursuance of several warrants 
granted Thomas Cookson, to John W. Kettera, Samuel Jago, and 
James Boyd. Again in an agreement made December 24, 1?99, 
John AV. Kettera sold to John Walker and Archibald Loudon 
"Holly Iron Works." A large interest still remained in the name 
of Foulke, when sold in 1803 to Michael Ege, Sr. Not far from 
this early forge were three ore banks which evidently had been 
mined at this early period, and very likely for other forges in the 
vicinity, of which there was one a few miles east, equally un- 
knoMTi but on the same site, one operated by a J. W. Boyer in 
the latter part of last century. And another of the same char- 
acter said to be as early as 1748, at the Holly Gap. 

The old forge at Boiling Springs, and the three ore banks, 
were no doubt the attraction that led to the formation of the 
John S. Rigby Company in 1761, and to secure legal title to 
these, with the following result. 

The three ore banks were described as having 20 acres each, 
and were embraced in an original grant of a large body of land 
made by William Penn to Adam Broosen, then of Holland, deed 
dated 7th of March, 1682, the same year of Penn's coming to 
take possession of his royal grant of Pennsylvania. 

86 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

The Broosen grant for some reason reverted to the Proprie- 
taries, and was vested in Eichard Peters, secretary of their land 
office in Philadelphia, empowered to issue warrants and grant 
titles. 

Eichard Peters, by deed of April 14th, 1761, conveyed in fee 
one thousand acres of said land, but on the 16th of same month, 
caused to be surveyed to him in part of the 1,000 acres the three 
ore banks, of 20 acres each. Jacob Yoner and Christina his wife, 
by their deed, dated Nov. 1761, conveyed the same to John S. 
Eigby and Nathaniel Giles. This was the aiucleus of the firm, 
soon formed by Eigby and Giles, conveying their holdings to the 
new Eigby & Company, composed of John S. Eigby, Samuel, 
John and Joseph Morris. On the 11th of Fehruary, 1763, 
Nathaniel Giles conveyed his one-fourth interest to Francis 
Sanderson, he thus becoming a member of the firm. 

A tract in Middleton Township, (now South Middleton) con- 
taining 1644 acres, for which a warrant was obtained from 
Eichard Peters in pursuance of five of eight certain warrants, 
dated May 31st, 1762, and surveyed in the name of John S. 
Eigby & Company on the 8th, 9th, 10th and 12th days of 
July, 1762, and confirmed to them. The 1644 acres, it would 
seem, included the 1,000 acres, the ore banks, with their original 
20 acre assignment, and lands adjacent. In addition to this 
there was another important tract needed to complete the re- 
quirements of the furnaces and buildings. This tract is de- 
scribed as containing 398 acres and 132 perches, Imown as the 
Boiling Springs property, adjoining the previously mentioned 
tract of 1644 acres; was granted by patent from the Proprietaries 
Oct. 13th, 1762, (Patent Book AA, vol. Ill, p. 445 &c). Por- 
tions of this tract had been deeded to John Dickey and David 
Eeed, which had to be acquired from them before the entire tract 
could be confirmed to Eigby & Co. The first portion of this was 
a tract of 29 acres, 126 perches, for the site of the furnace, which 
was begun in 1762 and which no doubt was the site of the old 
traditional forge. 

This entire estate was divided into 16 equal shares, held as 
follows: John Eigby 4-16, Francis Sanderson 4-16, Samuel 
Morris 3-16, Joseph Morris 3-16 and John Morris, Jr., 2-16. 
All of this property was conveyed in fee simple hy Eichard Peters 
to the John S. Eigby Company, October 14th, 1762. 

John S. Eigby and wife, Henrietta, by deed dated July 24th, 
1764, conveyed in fee 2-16 of their holdings to John Armstrong. 
About the same time or a little later, they conveyed their re- 
maining 2-16, to Eobert Thornberg, thus Armstrong and Thorn- 
berg becoming members of the Company. Thornberg being a 

87 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

skillful operator managed the works in the interests of the rest 
of the Company, and continued to do sn until shortly before his 
death. 

On the 7th of June, 1765, Francis Sanderson and wife, by 
deed, conveyed in fee, his 1-4 interest to Amos Strottle, of Phila- 
delphia, who by will devised it to his daughters, one of whom, 
Ann, married Cadwalader Morris. 

The entire Morris holdings were consolidated by their owners, 
and by heirs of some of the brothers, and conveyed to Michael 
Ege, Sr., April 7th, 1786. Previous to this Eobert Thornberg 
had died, 1774. His sons Thomas and Joseph were his execu- 
tors. Henrietta Rigby brought suit against them for unpaid 
claims, and secured judgment against them, under which Sheriff 
Postlethwait sold the 2-16 Thornburg holdings to Michael Ege, 
Sr., in 1775. Deed for this transaction however does not appear 
of record until 1785. 

After Eobert Thornberg's death Michael Ege, Sr., operated the 
works, but it was generally thought that he held large ownership, 
some years before this, but the fact is, that his first real owner- 
ship begun in 1775, and then he was but 22 years of age. 
And this bears out the tradition in the family, that he did so 
about the time of his coming of legal age. So it is hardly likely 
that there is any real discrepancy between the two dates as above 
mentioned. His complete ownership of the Boiling Springs Iron 
Works, and original estate of the Eigby Company, did not take 
place until the 13th of June, 1792, when John Armstrong and 
wife conveyed their 2-16 holding, from 1764, until this date. 

To this original estate, Michael Ege, Sr., during his lifetime 
added several thousand acres more, notably two farms, one by 
deed dated Dec. 13th, 1785, from Peter Wolff, his father-in-law, 
for 402 acres and 12 perches. Another from Adam Wolff, Oct. 
21st, 1794, containing 429 acres, 64 perches — probably his 
brother-in-law. 

In 1795, Michael Ege, Sr., built his mansion, beautiful for 
situation, on an elevated and rounded slope, with graduated ter- 
races leading down to the Boiling Springs lake and stream. The 
mansion still remains unimpaired by a century of time. The 
woodwork of the commodious interior is largely of mahogany 
and other hard woods of skillful handicraft. A wide hall runs 
through the center, in which rises a handsome Colonial staircase 
with mahogany wainscot and balusters. Large fire places incased 
in iron, mantles of fine woodwork extending to the ceiling and 
cornice above the mantle shelf are a joy to behold, around whose 
hearth-stone three generations of the family name had been born, 
reared and dwelt. The whole environment is one of park and

PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

lake, and farm and original furnace and forge sites, with their 
picturesque ruins, still most attractive; and now with modern 
equipped park, and trolley line access from Carlisle, during the 
summer, it is visited by hundreds of admiring people. 

The mansion is now owned and occupied by Mr. J. C. Bucher, 
including the entire surroundings of historic and romantic 
beauty, as above described. 

But the enterprise and activity of Michael Ege did not rest 
satisfied with this. He had brought up three sons in this iron 
interest, for whom a sphere of active employ should be provided. 
In 1803, the Holly Iron Works of Foulke and Oox were sold at 
Sheriff's sale, and purchased by Michael Ege, Sr., over which he 
placed his second son George, as manager. 

The history of this locality and early development is also in- 
volved in the uncertainty of its beginnings. It is located but a 
few miles west of the homestead property, along the mountain 
range of the Blue Eidge, south side of the Cumberland Valley 
and County. A narrow, wild and picturesque gap, with a rapidly 
flowing mountain stream passing through this range at this 
point. 

It was originally called Trents Gap, but later named Holly, 
from a large tree of the name — rare in this latitude, which stood 
near the furnace site some distance up the stream, where the gap 
widened out. The locality has long been Imown as Mt. Holly 
Springs, and for many years was a place of summer resort. 
Some historic incidents connected with the Mt. Holly opera- 
tions are of great interest and worthy of mention. ''Wing's His- 
tory" has the following : "Tradition says that there was a furnace 
at Upper Holly before the furnace built by Foulke and Cox. It 
also says on good authority that prior to the erection of Holly 
furnace, a forge for the manufacturing of cannon occupied the 
furnace site, and a mill connected with the forge for the pur- 
pose of boring the cannon stood where the present toll house now 
stands on the Carlisle and Hanover turnpike." Also that "the 
oldest cannon at present in the United States was manufactured 
here.'^ 

These cannon were made by William Dunning, a skillful iron 
worker, during the war of the Revolution. He manufactured suc- 
cessfully two, of wrought iron. He attempted a third, and a 
larger one, but on account of the great heat required and want 
of endurance by the workmen it was not finished. One of these 
was captured at the battle of Brandywine, and is said to be pre- 
served in the Tower of London as a curiosity. The second was 
said to have been kept as a relic in the Carlisle Barracks. _ 

Wailiam Dunning, after the Revolution, resided and died at 

89 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

Newville, Pa. Eecently a fine memorial stone has been erected 
over his grave in the cemetery of the Presbyterian Church there. 
It is of granite and surmounted with a typical cannon cut in the 
same stone. 

It is also said that the Hessian prisoners confined in Carlisle 
were sent out to Holly and cut and sawed the timber there to 
build the barracks for their shelter. The Carlisle Barracks, 
before the Civil War, for many years were used as a cavalry school 
for United States troops. The famous Indian school is now 
located in this historic seat. 

The Holly furnace bought in 1803, contained also at that time, 
or soon after by additional purchase, 7,689 acres of mountain and 
ore lands which extended above the Hunter's Eun Junction. 

George Ege, second son of Michael, Sr., became the manager 
for his father, and continued so until 1815. After his father's 
death, George Ege became the owner by court partition. The 
Holly estate was estimated at that time at $60,190, besides which, 
the Orphans' Court awarded him $5,552 for his services, rendered 
as manager of the works for twelve years. In 1812 he built a 
new and larger furnace near the site of the former. He con- 
tinued to operate these works and lands until Aug. 20th, 1838, 
when they were sold to the Farmers and Mechanics Bank, of 
'Carlisle, for $28,600, After which time, for some years longer, 
Joseph Arthur Ege, son of Peter Ege. and grandson 'of Michael, 
Sr., was the manager. 

The furnace was finally abandoned and torn down in 1855, to 
give place to the large paper industry, which is still in successful 
operation. 

An interesting chapter in this Mt. Holly history is the follow- 
ing: Michael Ege, Sr., on June 2nd, 1815, conveyed by deed 
of trust to John Miller, seven tracts of this mountain and ore 
land amounting to about twelve hundred acres, in behalf of 
Elizabeh Miller Ege, wife of his son George, for the purpose of 
promoting her interest separate and apart from that of her hus- 
band. This deed of trust was witnessed by George D. Foulke 
and George Patterson (receipt for $10.00 consideration money 
being given). Said deed was acknowledged on the same date 
before George Patterson, "Justice of the Peace." 

By some strange chance or reason, this deed was not revealed 
or made known imtil a short time before or after Mrs. George 
Ege's death, June 7th, 1848, when it was put on record by her 
husband in tlie Recorder's office of the County Court at Car- 
lisle. 

There it remained equally unknown until 1874, when it was 
discovered by chance by Judge Hepburn, who at once informed 
the living heirs, and for them brought an action for ejectment. 

90 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

This property had been encroached upon by various partieb, 
at different times, and large quantities of valuable ores mined 
and shipped. 

The suit was argued Oct. 12, 1874, before Judge B. F. Junkin, 
of Perry County, The suit was in favor of the heirs. It was 
carried up to the Supreme Court of the State. The decision of 
the lower court was affirmed, May 4th, 1875, and recovery was 
gained by the heirs, the saving clause being that no one party 
had held it for twenty-one years. And no intermediate deeds of 
change in owners of furnace and other lands had ever included 
these seven tracts. This to-day is the only remnant of a very 
great estate remaining in the family name. ISTote. — The 
writer saw in Gettysburg a Franklin stove with the name "George 
Ege, Mt. Holly Furnace." 

The next extensive iron interest that engaged the active enter- 
prise of Michael Ege, Sr., was that of the Pine Grove Iron 
Works and estate. 

The history of this property and iron development is of equal 
interest and importance with the others named and described. 
It is situated entirely within and of the ranges and valleys of 
South Mountain lying partly in the two counties of Adams and 
Cumberland, about ten miles south of Mt. Holly, approach to 
which was through the Holly Gap, and course of the mountain 
creek. The entire land holding of Michael Ege during his life of 
this estate amounted to 27,000 acres mountain, farm and ore 
lands. The first mention of Proprietary grants, of Eichard and 
Thomas Penn, by warrant dated July 22, 1762, for a certain 
tract of land of 450 acres, on Mountain Creek in West Penns- 
iboro Township, to Thomas Pope, who by deed, dated Oct. 22, 
1764, conveyed the same to George Stevenson, in which deed it 
recited, as the same as was surveyed by William Lyon on which 
Finley McGrew hath lately erected a saw mill. April 21, 1772, 
George Stevenson conveyed it to Finley McGrew, who in turn 
conveyed the same April 15, 1773, to Jacob Simon. 

These various conveyances are of record in Deed Books F, vol. 
I, p. 299 ; Book H, vol. I, p. 603. 

These are the earliest recorded ownerships. But it is evident, 
that Robert Thornburg and John Arthur, experienced iron oper- 
ators were interested here and probably during George Steven- 
son's several active years here. Eobert Thornburg and John 
Arthur built the Pine Grove furnace in 1770. An early forge 
was built in the vicinity, before any legal grant of land, thought 
to be on the site of the later forges built and rebuilt there and 
known as Laurel Forge, some distance below the furnace site on 
the Mountain Creek. 

91 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

On a tax list, in 1667, in Carlisle, Eobert Thornburg is named 
as the owner of a forge to which was attached 1,200 acres of land. 
There is little doubt, if any, as to this being the locality. A ten 
plate stove is known, with name of "Pine Grove! Furnace, 
1770." 

Note. 

George Stevenson was a man of note, born in Dublin, 1718, 
educated at Trinity College, emigrated to America 1750. By 
Commission of Proprietaries, was Judge of York and Cumber- 
land counties in 1755, and later in 1769 as a leading lawyer, he 
settled in Carlisle. He became a large land owner and manu- 
facturer of iron, and held interests in several operations in dif- 
ferent places. Associated with William Thompson, a general 
afterward in the Eevolution, and George Eoss, later a signer of 
the Declaration of Independence, they built the Mary Ann fur- 
nace in Long Swamp Township, Berks County, in which George 
Ege, brother of Michael, Sr., in 1769, became a partner with 
George Eoss. Stevenson married Mary Cookson, daughter of 
Thomas Cookson, deputy surveyor for the Proprietaries, who sur- 
veyed and laid out the plan for Carlisle, for whom also Cook 
Township was named, and in which he had taken up land, and 
where also Stevenson is thought to have had Proprietary grants. 

December 3, 1783, Jacob Simon conveyed Pine Grove Furnace 
and land, together with another tract of 100 acres, to Michael 
Ege, Sr., Thomas and Joseph Thornburg, sons of Eobert Thorn- 
burg — Michael Ege one-half and the Thornburg brothers one- 
fourth each. They operated the furnace as tenants in common. 
Joseph Thornburg, by deed dated Dec. 2, 1788, conveyed his one- 
fourth part to Thomas Thornburg and John Arthur, who no 
doubt was still in interest in the operation of the furnace. De.ed 
Book H, vol. I, p. 602. Thornburg and Arthur by deed dated 
Dec. 29, 1803 (Deed Book YY, vol. I, p. 416) conveyed the same 
to Michael Ege, who then became sole owner. Peter Ege, oldest 
son of Michael, in the meantime was superintending his father's 
interests from the time of his first purchase. Peter Ege married 
the daughter of John Arthur, and continued in the management 
until his father's death. As it is said Thornburg and Arthur 
built the furnace in 1770, in the interest of George Stevenson 
who was then the owner, it is most likely they built the fine old 
mansion still remaining. 

Michael Ege at once began to make large improvements. He 
built a new Laurel forge on the old site, and added many tracts 
of land to the original, until it reached the large proportion of 
the estate at his death in 1815. After which it was confirmed, 
by court proceedings in partition to Peter Ege, who continued 

92 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

to operate it until 1835, when he, March 24:, 1835 (Book QQ, vol. 
I, p. 91) conveyed to his sons Joseph Arthur and Michael Peter 
the personal property of Pine Grove and Laurel forge for the 
consideration of $20,000. They operated it Aug. 20, 1838, when 
it was levied on, and sold to Hon. Frederick Watts and C. B. 
Penrose, (Book Q, vol. 2, p. 189). November 25, 1843, Penrose 
and wife conveyed their interest to Hion. Frederick Watts, who 
conveyed the same February 5, 1845 to Edward and William M. 
Watts. Edward conveyed his interest to William M. Watts, who 
operated the furnace, forge and farms very successfully until 
1864, when April 1st, Wm. M. Watts conveyed the same to 
William G. Moorehead (Deed Book P, vol. 2, p. 212) who con- 
veyed the same by deed to the Company thus and then formed, 
viz: "Tlje South Mountain Mining and Iron Company." This 
firm built a new furnace, rebuilt Laurel forge, and continued to 
make iron until about 1890, when the business in iron fell so low 
that many furnaces were compelled to close. The principal mem- 
bers of this Company were Jay Cooke, the financier of war fame, 
and Jackson C. Fuller, his life-long friend. A short time before 
the panic of 1873, the Company built a rairoad from a Junction 
with the Cumberland Valley at Carlisle to the Pine Grove Fur- 
nace, and this with their improved facilities for making iron, they 
sold to the Thomas Iron Company, of Catasauqua, for $1,000,- 
000. After their first payments, they defaulted on the interest 
■of their mortgage indebtedness, and the property reverted to the 
South Mountain Company. Mr. Watts still held a mortgage on 
his original sale, of $100,000, which had to be redeemed before 
the Company could regain clear title. This being done, they re- 
sumed business, extended the railroad from a junction at Hunters 
Eun to Gettysburg, laid out a very beautiful excursion park near 
the furnace in a grove of magnificent trees, which for many years 
was well patronized. A little later Messrs Fuller & Cooke estab- 
lished a brick plant, which became quite a success. The furnace 
and forge have ceased their industry after a century. Messrs 
Fuller and Cooke, have departed this life, and their heirs hold 
the many landed acres. 

Pursuing a little farther the iron history of the family name, 
it is necessary to add one other operation. Along the base of the 
same South Mountain, within the Cumberland Valley, extending 
for several miles of beautiful farm land, and bordered by the 
Yellow Breeches Creek, to what is now the village of Huntsdale, 
Michael Ege, Sr., built in 1794, the Cumberland furnace. This 
furnace in its first years was managed by his oldest son Peter, 
and later for some years by Joseph Arthur Ege, his son. This 
property of furnace, mill and fine farms became the inheritance 

93 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

of Michael's two daughters, Mary, who married Dr. Wm. C. 
Chambers, and Eliza, who married James Wilson. In a few years 
this valuable property, because of some defect in the record of 
early deeds, or failure to do so, by those entrusted, and imknown 
to their father, passed out of their hands, and which, a costly 
litigation by their heirs a few years later, failed to regain. 

Conclusion. 

This vast estate, at the time of Michael Ege, Sr.'s, decease, 
embraced eighty-seven, original, separate, and distinct tracts, in 
continuous line along said mountain for twelve miles, containing 
upwards of 50,000 acres, four furnaces, mills and farms. It all 
passed out of the family possession in the next generation, ex- 
cept the Boiling Springs estate, which was held until the latter 
part of 1859 by Peter F. his grandson, another generation having 
been born and brought up in the old homestead. 

On June 3rd, 1815, Michael Ege, Sr., met his three sons, Peter, 
George, and Michael, Jr., for the purpose of deeding to them their 
portions, in lieu of a will. Peter and George refused to accept, 
as involving too large payments in order to equalize the share 
of each, which was to be the value of $100,000 each. Michael, 
Jr., accepted his, and received a deed therefor on the same day 
and date as follows: Carlisle Iron Works at Boiling Springs, 
including tracts of land pertaining thereto amounting to over 
seven thousand acres, with the homestead, and all houses, build- 
ings, stock, cattle, furniture, waters, water courses pertaining to 
the same valued at $148,020, out of which Michael, Jr., was to 
pay $48,020 in certain proportions to other heirs. 

Michael, Sr., died August 31st, 1815. Letters of administra- 
tion were taken out by George Ege and others, September 18th, 
1815. The courts in ^NTovember, 1815, rendered their decision as 
to the two brothers and the two sisters, the daughters receiving, 
as their father had desired. 

Michael Ege, Sr., was but sixty-two years of age, and from his 
full possession at about thirty years of age, in about the Sana's 
number of years more, had amassed what for that day was a very 
large fortune.

SKETCH. 



Major McFarlane, long a pioneer resident of Minneapolis, was 
a native of Newville, Cumberland Co., Pa., where he spent his 
early life, which was both active and useful, and where as a 
young surveyor he assisted in laying out a large addition to the 
town. He received his title of major from holding that rank in 
the "Eingold Artillery" of his county, which was organized by 
him, as a part of the State Militia force. 

In 1855, he took a trip to the west for the purpose of selecting 
a location for a home in its new and rapidly increasing interest. 
He soon followed with his young family to grow up in and with 
the development of the new country. He made choice of Minne- 
apolis and settled in the west end, in whose development he had 
a large share. 

Endowed with the ambition of young manhood he immediately 
sought investment for the means he brought from Pennsylvania. 
In the fall of 1857, he erected a warehouse at the lower levee, 
south of the Washington Bridge, and in the next year, embarked 
in the forwarding and commission business, associating with him 
for a beginning James Sully and Capt. Eeno, under the firm 
name of Sully, Eeno & McFarlane. But in 1859, he assumed the 
entire control, and carried on the business for many years. He 
later entered into real estate and insurance in the firm of McFar- 
lane, Burd & Co. 

Notwithstanding his private business interests, he took a deep 
interest in public afl^airs. In 1864, and '65, he was a trustee of 
the School District Ko. 89, comprising practically all the terri- 
tory now known as the West End. He was County Commissioner 
from 1871 to 1877, acting as Chairman of the Board most of the 
time. In 1877, he was elected City Alderman, in what was then, 
known as the Sixth Ward. Strongly Eepublican, he had the dis- 
tinction of serving as a Democrat. 

As a member of the Park Commission, in the acquiring the 
lands for the city parks, Loring, Eiverside and Elliott, is seen 
the monuments of his good judgment and wise choice. For a 
number of years, also, he served on the commission for opening 
and laying out streets and assessing benefits. 

He was one of the founders of the WIestminster Presbyterian 
Church, and a trustee of the same for many years. He was an 
old and honored member of the Odd Fellows and Masonic bodies, 
entering into fellowship with both these bodies in his native 
county in Pennsylvania. He transferred his memberships to his 
new home, and was thoroughly identified, and actively so, espe- 
cially in the different orders of Masonry. He served as treasurer 

101 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

in them, for twenty-five years. He was a charter member of 
Zion Commandery of Knights Templar in 1863, and later, in 
1892, charter member of Minneapolis Mounted Commandery. 
He was elected grand treasurer of Grand Commandery of 
Knights Templar of the State, in 1877, and continued in office 
until his death. 

Major McFarlane was naturally of a frail constitution, but by 
judicious, careful and abstemious habits, in his diet and exercise, 
he avoided serious sickness during his more than three score years 
and ten of life. As a neighbor, friend and citizen, the West End, 
in his death, has lost one whose place will not easily be filled. 
Because of his advanced age, he could not actively participate in 
the progress of his adopted city, yet he always manifested a keen 
and devout interest in every detail of the city's welfare, quite as 
much as when he had taken active part in the building of this 
important western metropolis. 

A beautiful trait of the Major's personal character is evidenced, 
in the fact, that, in his long and active life, Mr. McFarlane, by 
his careful thoughtfulness, and true generosity towards all with 
whom he came in contact in business or otherwise, gained a most 
enviable reputation for honesty and integrity, nor was he ever 
heard by his most intimate associates to utter an unkind word 
toward any one. In his language he was a stranger to vulgarity, 
always finding an appropriate word and chaste, to express either 
approval or disapproval. He was married to Margaretta Wood- 
burn Ege, October 19, 1852. On October 19th, 1902, while still 
in good health, the couple celebrated their golden wedding, re- 
ceiving the congratulations of hundreds of old and young friends. 
He died in 1904.

SKETCH. 

General Peter Ege, grandson of Peter Ege, of Pine Grove 
Furnace, Pa., the subject of this sketch, was born at the home of 
his grandfather, November 10th, 1835, where he spent his young 
boyhood. 

While attending school in jSTew Bloomfield, Pa., the writer of 
this brief sketch met his cousin there in their boyhood for the 

103 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

first time. Less than a month difference in their ages, and 
family likeness so strong they could easily have been taken for 
brothers. Time soon separated them, the one southward, and the 
other to the west. 

The changing circumstances of life, carved each one's career, 
imtil in lapse of years, the interest of, and preparation for, the 
history of the family name, brought the cousins in contact again 
by most interesting correspondence in their mutual years. The 
one became an educator and a clergyman — the other, a soldier, a 
lawyer, a business man, and a bank ofificer, and now each have 
retired from active professional life to well earned rest. 

General Peter married, in 1861, Miss Harriet L. Booth, of 
Logansport, Indiana, granddaughter of Major William Booth, of 
Virginia, War of 1812, whose wife was Deborah Hart, daughter 
of Edward, son of John Hart, of New Jersey, a signer of the 
Declaration of Independence. 

General Peter enlisted for the Civil War as Colonel of the 
34th Eegiment, Illinois Volunteer Infantry, and served until the 
close of the war. He participated in battles at Shiloh, Corinth, 
Stone River, Kennesaw and Lookout Mountains. 

He was the first wounded at Green River, Kentucky, in 1861, 
again wounded at Rome, Georgia, in 1864, and again at Savan- 
nah, Georgia, in 1864. He was with "Sherman's March to the 
Sea," from Bentonville, North Carolina. On this march, though 
Colonel, he was in command of the 3nd Brigade, 2nd Division, 
14th Army Corps. While in command of the brigade, July 4th, 
1865, General Sherman made his last review of his troops at 
Louisville, Kentucky, the General complimented the Colonel for 
the fine appearance, soldierly bearing and discipline of the bri- 
gade, and recommended him for promotion as brigadier general. 

General Peter participated in the last grand review of the 
army in Washington, at the close of the war, in command of his 
brigade, the grandest military pageant the world ever saw. He 
is prominent in G. A. R. and Masonic circles, and a member of 
the Bar. 

He and his wife are both members of the Presbyterian Church, 
active and liberal in every good work. They reside in Albany, 
Illinois. 

Their son, Sylvester Arthur, in his young manhood, after his 
days and special training in Fulton College, Illinois, and the 
State University, of Wisconsin, went south, to Laurel, Missis- 
sippi, to engage in business. In 1898, he enlisted in the U. S. 
army, during the Spanish- American War, and being a musician 
was promoted to the military band. He was taken ill in camp at 
Chickamauga, from which he never fully recovered. He re- 

104 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

turned to Laurel, where he followed the vocation of civil en- 
gineer, until his last illness, which occurred finally about two 
months hefore his death. He returned to his Albany home, 
August 5th, in the hope, as he said, "of getting well,'' but in a 
few days, on August 14th, 1908, the end came and he passed 
away. 

He was beloved for his ever bright and genial spirit, which 
made friends wherever his lot was cast. Owing to his faculty of 
seeing the bright side of life, his family will ever cherish his 
memory as being the life of the household. Had he lived one 
week longer, he would have reached thirty-two years of age.

SKETCITES. 



Eev. Joseph S. Eoddy graduated at Princeton College and 
Theological Seminary. As a Presbyterian minister, he had 
charge of a church in liarrisburg for several years, and is 
pastor's assistant at the Arch Street Presbyterian Church, PMla- 
delphia. 

Eev. Mr. Eoddy is a very active and energetic worker in several 
important fields of business and historic research, a great student, 
a fine writer, and preacher, a wonderful collector and compiler 
of a vast amount of valuable statistics in literary and historic 
lines. 

Just before the lamented death of his brother, they had en- 
tered into the purchase and re-organization of the old Bloomfield 
Academy, for advanced educational work. Eev. Mr. Eoddy has 
therefore been compelled to assume the responsibility of this un- 
dertaking as its president, directing its work in addition to his 
ministerial duties in Philadelphia. 

Greorge Black Eoddy was the younger brother of Eev. Joseph 
Stockton, and second son of George B. and Martha Ege Eoddy. 

The Eoddy family is one of the oldest and most historic fami- 
lies in this section of Pennsylvania (Perry County), and de- 
scended from Alexander Eoddy, one of the pioneers who settled 
in the upper part of the county in 1756, and George Black, who 
settled in the same locality in 1,766. The subject of this sketch 
was born on the old Black farm, at Mt. Pleasant, Jackson Town- 
ship. His father died in 1867. His mother continued to reside 
on the farm, except for a short interval until 1878, when they 
moved to Philadelphia, remaining there but a short time, during 
which George entered the public school. Although the youngest 
boy in his division he stood at the head of his classes in the gram- 
mar school. They then located finally in JSTew Bloomfield, the 
county seat of Perry. After being under the tutorship of Capt. 
G. C. Palm for a time, he attended the Bloomfield Academy, 
under the principalship of the late Dr. Edgar, and later Dr. 
Flickinger. He entered Princeton University in 1882. His col- 
lege course was marked by a series of intellectual triumphs. He 
won the Sophomore mathematical prize, was Junior first honor 
man, and graduated in 1886, as first honor man in his class, and 
classical fellow, which latter honor carried with it a prize of 
$600. After his graduation he was for a time instructor in 
Latin and Greek in Princeton University. He then went to 
Europe to complete his education and became a student in 
Theology in Berlin University; Student of languages in Paris, 

106 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

France; Rome, Italy, and at Athens, Greece. He spoke Greek, 
German and French fluently. 

On his return to this country, he was re-appointed instructor 
in Greek in Princeton Theological Seminary, which position he 
finally abandoned to take up the study of law. He entered as a 
student in the law office of the Hon. Charles H. Smiley, in 1894, 
and was admitted to the bar of his native county in 1898. He 
soon acquired a good practice and was recognized as an able 
lawyer. 

While studying law, he served as principal of the Bloomfield 
Academy in 1894-95 and '96. He continued the practice of his 
profession until his death. 

In religious faith Mr. Eoddy was a Presbyterian, and in poli- 
tics an independent Republican. He was an ardent champion in 
the cause of temperance, both of local option and anti-saloon 
league movements. He was also^ prominently mentioned as a 
candidate for president judge, next year (1911). 

The sad news of his sudden death spread over the town with 
incredible rapidity and produced the profoundest sorrow, casting 
a gloom over the entire community. His death was a terrible 
blow to his mother, wife and brother. 

As a man in the community, he was an example of the highest 
moral character, scrupulously honest and Just in all his dealings 
with his fellow-man, broad-minded, generous and charitable, 
fearless in the discharge of his duty as he saw it. 

He was a man whom to Imow was to honor and respect. A 
profound scholar, and a polished gentleman, possessed of genial 
social qualities, he was very popular, and his friends were legion. 

In his death has passed away one of the foreniost educators, 
one of the most unselfish, public-spirited citizens, and one of the 
most conscientious, high-mindQd gentlemen that his native 
county has produced. 

Like the "Call of the Wild," his love for books, learning and 
teaching was luring him again to educational work which he was 
just to resume by an inaugural address at the opening of the 
Academy on the evening of the day, September 5, 1910, on 
which the summons came. Life work already well done, so 
ended.

SKETCH. 



The subject of this sketch, James Shippen Burd, was of a 
family line distinguished in the early part of Colonial and Pro- 
prietary days of Pennsylvania, and also in the Eevolution, His 
great-great-grandsire on maternal side was Edward Shippen, of 
Philadelphia, appointed by William Penn, first mayor of the city. 
Edward Shippen, Jr., born 1729; Chief Justice of Supreme 
Court of Pennsylvania, 1799 ; died 1806. 

The Shippens held Proprietary lands, by warrants of the 
Penns, where the town of Shippensburg in the Cumberland Val- 
ley, Pa., was begun in 1720, the oldest town in the valley, which 
by 1830 contained twelve families. As a defense against the 
Indians, Fort Franklin was built there in 1740. In 1755, Fort 
Morris on the Shippen land, on a rocky bluff on the west side of 
the town, and was occupied by a force during 1756-57 during the 
French and Indian War. 

During the Eevolution, Col. James Burd held this same fort 
for a short time. Col. James Burd married Sarah Shippen, 
daughter of Chief Justice Shippen. His son Joseph Burd 
bought all the Shippen family interests in these lands, which he 
occupied, and lived and died there. The next owner was Edward 
Burd, bachelor brother of Mr. James Shippen Burd's father, 
from whom James Shippen inherited it, and owned it until 1860, 
when he sold it and removed to Minneapolis. 

Mr. Burd received his preparatory education for college at the 
private academy of Eev. Dr. McGinnis, at Shade Gap, Hunting- 
ton Co., Pa. His collegiate course was pursued at Jefferson and 
Lafayette colleges, graduating at the latter. He then entered the 
Law Department of the same, where he graduated at law. He at 
once entered upon the practice of his profession, removing to 
Minneapolis, and continuing to do so until his death in 1876. 

In connection with W. E. McFarlane, he became the head of 
the firm, Burd, McFarlane & Co., in 1867, to engage in real 
estate, insurance, and law business. He had a large successful 
career in Probate Courts in settling estates, and the general 
legal interests of the firm W. E. McFarlane, dying in the mean- 
time, was succeeded in the firm by Major J. G. McFarlane, and 
which under the same firm name, continued for many years. 

Mr. Burd was a member of the Westminster Presbyterian 
Church. He died in 1876, universally esteemed for his genial 
character, and integrity in all his dealings, and in the civic in- 
terests of his adopted city, of which he was the first city comp- 
troller. His remains were taken to his native home, and 
interred in Spring Hill Cemetery, Shippensburg, among his 
kindred. The Burd family name is perpetuated in monumental

SKETCH. 

James Henry Ege was born at Pine Grove Furnace, Pa., in 
1844, After seven years of age, removed with his father, Joseph 
Arthur, Sr., from place to place, who as skilled iron operator, was 
superintendent of various furnaces in succession throughout the 
State, and finally to W:hiteside Co., Illinois. The subject of this 
sketch was then fourteen years of age ; had worked on farms, go- 
ing to school at intervals in the meantime, and until eighteen, 
when in August, 1862, he enlisted in Company F, 93rd Eegt. of 
Illinois Volunteers, as a private soldier. He was soon promoted 
to corporal, and later on for bravery on duty, was promoted to 
the position of mounted orderly at brigade headquarters, 3rd 
Brigade of 3rd Division, 15th Army Corps of the Army of Ten- 
nessee. He took part in all engagements of his regiment, 
namely, Eaymond, Jackson, and Champion Hills, Miss.; Mis- 
sionary Eidge, Tenn. ; Altoona Pass, and Dalton, Georgia, and 
in a number of minor engagements and skirmishes, finally wind- 
ing up with Sherman's March to the Sea, and Grand Eeview at 
Washington, D. C, where he was mustered out in 1865, having 
served but ten days less than three full years. 

He never was wounded, though with several narrow escapes. 
His gun was shot out of his hand at Altoona Pass, just missing 
his arm. A ball was shot through his hat, and rim shot off on 
one side, and still remained on his head, without a scratch on his 
head. His health, however, was greatly impaired, from which he 
has never fully recovered, suffering at times in helpless condition 
from rheumatism. After his marriage in Albany, Illinois, in 
1867, he removed to Minneapolis, and engaged in real estate, 
stocks and grain brokerage. Mr. Ege has been a life-long Eepub- 
lican. He cast his first vote for President Lincoln in 1864, and 
from that time has always taken a great interest in ISTational, 
State, and Local Politics. He has served as Head Deputy Sheriff, 
under three Sheriffs, five and a-half years; then elected for two

terms of four years High Sheriff of Hennepin County, Minne- 
sota. He was Department Commander of Minnesota G. A. E. in 
1888. Was also appointed Judge of Municipal Court at Anoka, 
Minn., for one year. He has also served as Sergeant-at-Arms of 
Minnesota State Senate for the sessions of 1907-1909, and now 
for 1911. 

Surely a worthy and influential record in his community and

SKETCH. 

The Hon. Samuel C. Wagner, the subject of this sketch, was a 
native of Cumberland Co., Pa., and son of John Wagner, one of 
the most prominent citizens of Newville, being President of the 
First ISTational Bank in the same town for a number of years. 
He descended from one of the oldest families of this portion of 
the State, his ancestors being among the first settlers. "Wagner's 
Gap" in the northern range of the Blue mountains was named 
after his gi-eat-grandfather, who owned the land at its base, and 
this portion of the mountain ridge. 

Samuel C. Wagner, entered the army for the Civil War Aug. 
8th, 1861, as a private. Company H, Young's Kentucky Cavalry, 
afterwards known as the Third Pennsylvania, and the first Vol- 
unteer cavalry in the army. He was soon promoted to second 
lieutenant of Company I, of his regiment, then to first lieutenant, 
as commissary of the regiment, and assigned to the staff of Gen. 
John B. Mcintosh, commanding 1st Brigade, 2nd Cavalry Di- 
vision. 

At Gettysburg, on the afternoon of the 3rd of July, 1863, when 
Genl. J. E. B. Stuart, commanding the Confederate cavalry, at- 
tempted to get in the rear of General Meade's army, ordered Gen. 
Wade Hampton's brigade to charge the Union cavalry, held by 
Generals Mcintosh and Carter. The Confederate cavalry tem-

porarily broke the Union line at one point, and near a Union 
battery, seeing which, and the danger of losing the battery, Lieu- 
tenant Wagner, at once rallied all the orderlies, guards and 
detachments, charged the head of Hampton's command, checked 
it and captured a number 'of prisoners. General Gregg compli- 
mented him on the field for this timely act of bravery and 
recommended him for further promotion. He afterwards served 
on the staff of Gen. J. P. Taylor, who succeeded General Mc- 
intosh in command of the brigade, and also on the staff of Gen. 
D. McM. Gregg, commanding 2nd Cavalry Division. 

Captain Wagner served to the end of the war. He later entered 
actively into civic and political life. He was nominated for State 
Senator, for the Adams and Cumberland District. His oppo- 
nents were two veteran journalists, John B. Bratton, editor of the 
American Volunteer, and John K. Peffer, of the Valley Sentinel. 
Captain Wagner received between six and seven hundred votes 
more than his two opponents combined. Again in the contest for 
the Gettysburg District, the Eepublican party, James W. Bosler, 
who was a millionaire and very popular, after one of the most 
exciting political contests ever waged in any district, Mr. Wagner 
was victorious, and thus served four years in office. 

He later moved to Philadelphia, where he still resides, and has 
occupied various municipal official positions.

LIFE SKETCH! OF GEORGE EGE, OF MICHAEL, SR. 

George Ege was bom January, 1780, at the home of his grand- 
father, Peter Wolff, at Spring Forge, York County, Pa. He was 
brought up in the knowledge and experience of iron making by 
his father, Michael Ege, Sr., at Boiling Springs. After the pur- 
chase (1803) of the Mt. Holly Iron Works, by his father, he was 
placed in charge, and operated them for him, until they became 
his by inheritance in 1815. He continued to operate the furnace 
until 1838, when it passed into other hands. Joseph Arthur Ege, 
his nephew, as superintendent, then had charge of it for some 
years. The furnace was finally abandoned in 1855, and on the 
site a large paper mill was erected by Messrs. Given and Mullin, 
and still (1911) is doing a flourishing business. George Ege, re- 
tiring from business, spent the rest of his days in Carlisle, serv- 
ing as Justice of the Peace for many years, where he died in a 
ripe old age of seventy-nine years, outliving both his brothers, 
Peter and Michael, Jr.

HISTORIC SKETCH OF EEV. OLIVER EGE. 

The subject of this sketch, was born at Boiling Springs, Cum- 
berland Co., Pa., December 10th, 1801, and died in Mechanics- 
burg, 1889, in the same county, and only a few miles from the 
place of his birth, in the eighty-ninth year of his age, and the 
sixty-second of his ministry. 

He became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 
Harrisburg in 1819. 

Between the dates given was comprehended a life as useful 
and honored as it was extended. 

Not very long after his entering upon a religious life, thoughts 
touching the Christian ministry crystallized into conviction. 
Feeling the need of better literary advantages, he made use of 
his savings to procure the same. He then became a student in 
the home of Dr. Asa Herring, of Mechanicsburg, who gave in- 
struction to a limited number of young men, whom he thus 
trained for the study of medicine or for entrance into college. 
He pursued his studies for two years, but during this time, he 
frequently exercised his gifts, holding prayer and exhortation 
meetings in the town and vicinity, having been licensed therefor 
March 23rd, 1825. 

About two years later, he was recommended for admission into 
the Baltimore Conference of the M. E. Church. Two years of 

120

PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

probationary trial having elapsed, on March 22, 1829, he was 
ordained "Deacon" in Baltimore, by Bishop Eobert Eoberts, and 
two years later, March 20, 1831, was ordained "Elder" by Bishop 
Elijah Hedding. 

On February 7th, 1833, he was imited in marriage to Susan- 
nah P. Thompson, daughter of Hugh and Ann Dodson Thomp- 
son of Berwick, Pa., Eev. William Prettyman performing the 
ceremony. His wife became indeed a thorough helpmeet to him,, 
through all his years of active labor, sharing bravely the priva- 
tions of the early years, in the many homes of his ministry 
among strangers as their lot was so frequently cast. 

Two sons and two daughters were born of this union. The 
home life of husband and wife with their children was one of 
love and tenderness, and with the blessedness of religious influ- 
ence and example, was such as to bring forth the fruit of good 
living, and the exemplification of the true Christian home. And 
so also in their intercourse with those among whom their lot was 
so frequently cast. Uniform kindness of heart ever character- 
ized it, and there was a road to their hearts not hard to find. 

The services he rendered the Church of his choice as an itin- 
erant minister and pastor can scarcely be estimated or enumer- 
ated in a brief sketch, and in those pioneer days they were truly 
heroic. His first charge in 1827 embraced a circuit of six hun- 
dred miles, territory now forming the bounds of a conference. 
The deprivations endured, the dangers incurred, and expedients 
resorted to in the face of unforeseen difficulties, ofttimes of storm 
and flood, in order to meet appointments can scarcely be realized 
in these days of ease and comfort. His early ministry was one in 
which he preached in groves, private houses, barns, and seldom 
in houses consecrated to the worship of God. 

A scattered flock, few members, and scarcity of money, made 
the building of Church edifices well nigh impossible. For thirty- 
three years of this active itineracy he labored faithfully for God 
and man. He was a splendid type of that class of godly men 
who, for the joy that was set before them endured the Cross, de- 
spised the shame, gloried in tribulation, and with heroic perse- 
verance toiled on until they saw the pleasure of the Lord pros- 
pering in their hands. 

In 1860, Eev. Oliver Ege retired from his active ministry in 
appointed charges. He then embarked with his adult sons in the 
management of the Cumberland Valley Institute for Boys and 
Young Men. In this new field there was still ample scope for 
the exercise of his godly life, and example, and which in exhorta- 
tion and pious counsel he never lost an opportunity for good. 
Until disabled by age and disease in the few last j^ears of his 

121 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

life, he was very frequently called upon to exercise his ministerial 
gifts. 

As a private citizen he clearly understood and appreciated his 
duty and privilege, and with fidelity and spirit discharged every 
obligation devolving upon him. He passed away full of years, 
with duty all and fully done, to his eternal rest, fully deserved 
and faithfully won. 

His devoted wife survived him for a few years more, when, 
within a few weeks of her eightieth year, she peacefully fell 
asleep in death. Their mortal remainsi now rest side by side in 
the cemetery at Danville, Pa.

lisle, Pa., graduating from there in 1855, and at once began his 
active career in life as a teacher. 

In 1860, associated with his father and brother, he became the 
Principal of the Cumberland Valley Institute, a boarding and 
home school for boys, and young men, in Mechanicsburg, Pa. In 
1865, he retired from the Institute to accept the Presidency of 
Irving Female College in the same town, his father and brother 
remaining in the former school. In 1883, he resigned the presi- 
dency of the college and entered the ministry of the Episcopal 
Church, in which he is still engaged, having filled parishes in 
Germantown, G-ettysburg, Philadelphia, and a suburban parish, 
near the latter in Montgomery County, retiring therefrom in 
1909, and since in almost constant calls for supply service in New 
York City and vicinity. 

His marriage, in 1864, was solemnized by his father in Phila- 
delphia. At the late commencement of Dickinson College, in 
June, 1910, he was honored by his Alma Mater with the degree 
of Doctor in Divinity. 

Prof. Alexander H. Ege, graduated also from Dickinson Col- 
lege in the class of 1859, sharing first honors with another. He 
became a prominent and successful educator for many years, 
after which he became quite an inyentor, and spent other years in 
promoting his patent interests, at the same time not losing his 
interest in literary work. 

He is an accomplished scholar, and a fine writer, contributing

SKETCH. 

Dr. Samuel Yorks Thompson was the son of John and Hannah 
(Yorks) Thompson, of Danville, Pa. 

He was educated in the schools of his native town, and at .the 
Cumberland Valley Institute, Mechanicsburg, Pa. He early 
evinced an aptitude and desire for the study of medicine, and 
while a student at the Institute, supplemented his studies there, 
by reading in the office and under the direction of Dr. P. H. 
Long. He attended lectures and graduated in Medicine in New 
York City, and immediately began the practice of his profession 
in Danville, where he achieved great success and a reputation 
which extended far and wide throughout that portion of the 
State, and in consequence thereof, he was constantly called in 
consultation, and frequently from fifty to a hundred miles dis- 
tant. 

He was also a public-spirited citizen of his town and county. 
He was twice elected associate judge of his county and was 
filling his second term at the time of his death, which occurred 
suddenly in his office, while writing a prescription for a patient 
then present. 
• He died from heart failure brought on by over work, and a self- 
sacrificing spirit that knew no rest, nor suffered any call for help 
to pass unheeded. He married Anna E. Ege, whose mother was 
a first cousin of the Doctor's father, and at whose marriage, Eev. 
Oliver Ege, her father officiated.

SKETCH AND LINE OF DESCENT. 

Johu Edward Zug was born in Carlisle. Pa., son of John 
18i»-1843, of Jacob 1793-1877, of John 1763-1824, of John 
1731-1821, of Ulric, who arrived in Philadelphia, Sept. 37, 1727, 
sailing from Rotterdam, in a company of Palatines from Bavaria. 
Ulric died early in 1759. 

Mr, John Edgar Zug, the subject of this sketch, has been 
connected with a prominent bank in Washington, D. C, for many 
years. He entered upon this position during the Civil War, and 
the financial triumphs of Jay Cooke, in the bank over which 
Henry D. Cooke then presided. Mr. Zug still retains his bank 
connection in the same building as then, (but since enlarged to 
twice its original capacity, and with most modern improve- 
ments), and so, 'mid all the changes of time, and deaths of his 
first associates. He resides on a farm and in a beautiful home at 
Bowie, Md. 

John Zug, Jr., has spent the last sixteen years in the employ 
of the United States Government, on the Pacific Coast, as civil 
and hydrographic engineer, surveying lands, harbors and rivers. 
He is now (1910) and has been for some five years, in charge 
of a corps of engineers, and road builders in Alaska, under con- 
tract by the Government.

GALBEAITH GENEALOGY, 

The family of Galbraith is of the remotest antiquity, the 
name being derived from the Celtic. It was in the parish of 
Baldunoch, County Sterling, that the Galbraiths of Baldunoch, 
chiefs of the name, had their residence. I find from a map of 
the 16th Century, showing the old divisions of Scotland and loca- 
tions of the Highland clans, that the Galbraiths (Gaelbraith) 
were located around the south and west shores of Loch Lomond, 
m the present coimty of Lennox. In "Frazier's statistical account 

125 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

of the- inhabitants of the isle of Gigha" the following occurs, 
"The majority of them are of the name of Galbraith and 
McNeil], the former reckoned the more ancient." The G-al- 
braiths in the Gaelic language are called "Breatannich, that is 
Britons" or the children of the Briton, and were once reckoned 
a great name in Scotland, according to the following lines trans- 
lated from the Gaelic : 

"Galbraiths from the Red Tower 
ISToblest of Scottish surnames." 

In the maps of the 16th Century above referred to. Isle Gigha 
is assigned to "Clan Neil." 

The first of the name with whom we have to do is 

1st, John Galbraith, of Donegal, Ireland, who probably died 
before the emigration of his sons to America in 1718. His two 
sons were: 

James, born 1666, married Eebecca Chambers, whose descend- 
ants we follow below, and John, who married and left issue, and 
M'hose descendants settled in Kentucky. 

II James Galbraith, son of I John, of Scotch parentage, was 
born in 1666 in the north of Donegal, Ireland, from whence he 
emigrated about the year 1718, settled in Conestoga, afterwards 
Donegal township, then Chester County, Province of Pennsyl- 
vania. He was one of the founders of old Derry Church, a man 
of prominence and the head of a remarkable family. He died 
August 23rd, 1744, and is buried in the old graveyard at Derry. 
Of his children we have the following : 

i John, born 1690, married Janet ? 

ii Andrew, born 1692, married and left issue ; colonist. 

iii James, born 1703, married Elizabeth Bertram. 

iv Elenor, married Feb. 27th, 1735, Patrick McKinley, had

Charles, Eobert, William, Frances, Margaret. 

III James Galbraith (I John, II James) was born in the 
north of Ireland in 1703 and died June 11th, 1786, in East 
Pennsboro township, Cumberland Co., Pa., buried in Derry 
Church graveyard. He took up a tract of land now in Derry 
township, Dauphin County, on Spring Creek, not far from the 
church glebe, the warrant therefor hemg granted him March 
13th, 1737. He became a man of note on the frontier, and early 
provincial records of Pennsylvania contain frequent reference to 
him. He was elected sheriff of the county in October, 1742; for

many years was one of the Justices for the County of Lancaster 
and served as an officer during the Indian wars of 1755-63. 
Towards the revolutionary period he removed to Cumberland 
County. He married, April 6th, 1734, in Christ Church, Phila- 
delphia, Elizabeth Bertram, born 1714, in the north of Ireland,

Soon after his marriage in 1834, he removed from Carlisle to 
Tawneytown, Carroll County, Md., where he purchased a large 
estate and built on it a fine mansion. He conducted it as a model 
farm, finely equipped and stocked with choice cattle and horses. 
He soon became identified with the interests of his adopted State, 
and for many years with its political hisory. He represented the 
State as a Legislator in 1845-46 ; was a member of Constitutional 
Eeform Convention 1850-51; was twice a presidential elector, 
and held other prominent positions. He was always noted for his 
firm adherence to settled convictions, and for his earnest and un- 
tiring support of principles he deemed to be right. Col. Ege 
was a bitter opponent of the "Know Nothing Party" in the days 
of its strength. He was a great reader, and was well informed in 
the history of the past, and in its progress in the present. His 
mind was stored with a vast fund of practical knowledge, the re- 
sult of long experience and close observation. In 1856, he 
caught the "Western fever," sold his Maryland estate, and 
gathering followers, he emigrated to Kansas, and taking up large 
bodies of land, colonized them there. 

He thus became thoroughly identified with the interests and 
development of the new State. He was a man of untiring energy, 
and had improved twenty-one farms in his life, and had owned a 
large amount of land in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Iowa, Mis- 
souri, Kansas and IMichigan. He spent a large fortune in Kan- 
sas, and did much for the material development of Doniphan 
County, where, at the time of his death three of his sons were 
settled on farms. He was a lover of horses and of the chase, and 
often said "that he had owned more fine dogs than any man in 
America." 

As a horseman and a good shot, he was unsurpassed. In fact 
his pleasures were those of the past generation. He was a social, 
polite, genial gentleman of the "olden time," so few of whom are 
left, and withal he was a truly charitable man. He never saw 
distress without offering to relieve and assist the afflicted. 

His heart, though brave, was as tender as a woman's. A long 
and busy life ended with his death. During his last sickness, he 
remarked "that he relied on the justice and mercy of God and 
believed in the Atonement." 

"One who loved him while living, and mourns him gone 
before, who understood his great generosity and affection, with 
a sad heart lays this tribute of love upon his bier." 

" Weep not at Nature's transient pain, congenial spirits part to meet 
again. The grass upon his grave will freshen and wither, but the 
memory of the departed will ever remain fresh in the heart. May we 
meet in the hereafter. 'Mors omnibus communis.' "

LIFE SKETCH OF THE HOI^. FREDERICK WATTS. 

Hon. Frederick Watts, eldest son of David Watts and Juliana 
Miller, and grandson of General Frederick Watts and Jane Mur- 
ray, was born at Carlisle, May 9, 1801, and always lived there. 
He received his education at Dickinson College, from which in- 

135 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

stitution he graduated in 1819, at the age of eighteen. The two 
years immediately following his graduation from college he 
spent with his uncle, William Miles, of Erie County, engaged at 
farming, which vocation possessed a special attraction for him 
throughout his long and busy life. In 1821, he returned to 
Carlisle, entered the office of Andrew Carothers, Esq., as a 
student-at-law, and was admitted to the bar in 1824. He became 
his preceptor's partner, and by his energy and ability soon won 
high rank as a lawyer. From 1829 to 1854 he was a reporter of 
the decisions of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. The first 
three volumes issued bore his name as sole reporter; and subse- 
quently nine volumes bore his name in connection with that of 
Henry J. Sergeant, Esq. In 1845 he was made president of the 
Cumberland Valley railroad, which by his intelligent manage- 
ment he raised from a languishing condition to a high degree 
of efficiency, making it an important factor in the development 
of the section through which it passes. He retired from its 
presidency in 1873, but continued a director in the company until 
his death. On March 9th, 1849, he was appointed President 
Judge of the Ninth Judicial District, then composed of the coun- 
ties of Cumberland, Perry and Juniata. This office he filled until 
1852, when the elective judiciary began. He was an ardent friend 
of higher education, and from 1824 to 1828 was secretary of the 
board of trustees of Dickinson College, and from 1828 to 1832 
a member of the board, and active and influential in all its pro- 
ceedings. In 1854, he was instrumental in establishing the 
Pennsylvania State Agricultural College, and was elected first 
president of its board of trustees. He was in close touch with 
the farmers of his section, and constantly sought to advance the 
best interests of agriculture. For many years he was president of 
the Cumberland County Agricultural Society, and its most 
devoted friend and patron. In 1854, he projected the Carlisle 
Gas and Water Company, and for a long time was president of it. 
To indulge his taste for agricultural pursuits he, in 1865, re- 
moved to one of his farms near Carlisle, and began gradually to 
relinquish his law practice. In 1871, he was tendered the ap- 
pointment of United States Commissioner of Agriculture. This 
lie declined, but the offer afterward renewed and urged upon 
him he accepted and held the place until 1877, when, because of 
advancing years, he retired from all active duties of life. 

Perhaps no man left more lasting and favorable impression 
upon the community in which his busy life was passed than 
Frederick Watts. As a lawyer he occupied a front rank for 
nearly half a century — excepting the time he was on the Bench. 
There is not a report of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in 

136 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

forty-two years that does not contain his name as counsel. He 
was a man of great force of character and abiding self-confidence. 
Whatever he believed he believed implicitly and whatever he 
did he did with all his might. He never sat down to the counsel 
table that he did not impress the court and jury that he confi- 
dently expected to win his case. His power with the jury was 
great. His reputation for ability, integrity and unblemished 
honor was known to every man in the counties in which he prac- 
tised, and he invariably sustained this reputation, which was 
always dignified, and speech that was always clear, strong, con- 
vincing and never tedious. He possessed the respect of his 
brethren of the Bar in an unusual degree, and as a man and 
a citizen he was universally regarded as unselfish, public- 
spirited and patriotic. 

Frederick Watts was twice married. He first married Eliza 
Cranston, of ISTewcastle County, Delaware, who bore him three 
children. Mrs. Watts died in November, 1832, and he afterwards 
married Henrietta Ege, daughter of Michael Ege, of Cumberland 
County, who bore him the following children: William Miles, 
Mary, Julia Miller, Frederick, Coleman Hall, Edward Biddle, 
Sarah Campbell, Edward Biddle (2), Sarah Campbell (2), 
Henrietta and Brown Parker. Judge W|atts died August 17, 
1889. His wife, Henrietta Ege, died March 7, 1890, and he and 
his two wives are buried in the old Carlisle cemetery.

6. Peter F. Ege, the fifth son of Michael, 3rd, Jr., of Boiling 
Springs, was born at the family homestead there, in 1818. He 
was educated in private schools, and at Jefferson College, Wash- 
ington County, Pa. After graduation he studied law and was 
admitted to the Bar of the Cumberland County Court, at Car- 
lisle. 

He practiced for a short time, when it fell to him to take 
charge of the homestead estate and iron works, which finally 
became his property. He operated this successfully until about 
1860. He married in the meantime, and in the old homestead 
built by his grandfather, brought up quite a family of great 
grandchildren, the last of the name to possess the fine old man- 
sion. He then retired from business, and resided in Carlisle until 
his decease in 1881. He was a fine scholar, a great reader, an 
expert iron master and business man; generous to a fault, kind to 
his hands and to the poor in the community around him in sick- 
ness and trouble, who never were turned away without the help 
they needed, and so were universally grieved at his departure 
from their midst.

SKETCH. 

Dr. William Chestnut Chambers was born in the Cumberland 
Valley, near Harrisburg, Pa., of the same ancestry as the 
founders of Chambersburg, Pa. He was educated in Dickinson 
College, Carlisle, in the same class with James Buchanan, later 
President of the United States. The Doctor graduated in medi- 
cine, in the Medical Department of the University of Pennsyl- 
vania. 

He began the practice of Ms profession in Carlisle, and soon 
after married. Though much esteemed as a physician, after a 
few years he relinquished his practice to take the management 
of the Cumberland furnace and estate, which his wife inherited 
from her father, Michael Ege, Sr. Dr. Chambers was an elder 
in the Presbyterian Church, at Carlisle, for many years. In 
1838, he moved with his family to Philadelphia, resumed his 
practice, and died there in 1857.

HISTOEIC SKETCH OF THE EEVEEEND TALBOT 
WILSON CHAMBEES, S.T.D., LL.D. 

The Eev. Dr. Chambers was born in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, 
and grew up to young manhood in the intelligent and cultured 
society of that college town. He was but eleven years of age 
when he entered Dickinson College. In the spring of 1832, he 
was honorably dismissed from Dickinson, and on the 4th of 
May was admitted to the Sophomore Class in Eutgers College, 
New Brunswick, New Jersey. This change was made because of 
his desire to continue under the instruction- of the noted Dr. 
Alexander ^McClellan, who had removed from Dickinson to fill the 
chair of languages. 

Dr. Chambers graduated from Eutgers in 1834, at the age of 
fifteen, the youngest in a class of twenty, and with the honors of 
his class. Soon after his graduation, he entered upon the study 
of Theology, at Eutgers, still under the instruction of Dr. Mc- 
Clellan, his favorite professor, but finishing his course finally at 
Princeton Seminary. He became, as his years went on, a thor- 
ough Theologian, by natural bent and training and constant 
study, and consequently a preacher of great force and power. 
After his semin-ary graduation, he spent two years as la teacher 
in private families in the South, continuing meanwhile his prep- 
aration for the ministry. He was finally licensed to preach, while 
in the South, by the Presbytery of Clinton, Mississippi, October 
21st, 1838. 

He accepted his first call from the Second Eeformed Church 
of Earitan, at Somerville, N. J., and entered on his ministry on 
October, 1839. He served this charge until 1849, when he was 
called to be one of the ministers of the Collegiate Eeformed 
Churches of New York City. In this new field he soon became 
prominent, and continued actively therein until his death in 1896, 
at which time he was the oldest surviving minister of these Asso- 
ciate Churches, and had been for several years their head, and 
leader in the councils of the denomination. 

During these eventful years, besides his large sphere of influ- 
ence, both in the Church and various official positions in the 
denomination councils, his wonderful labors and success in liter- 

143 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

ature, and in a wide range thereof, was notable, and marked his 
scholarship and ability in a high degree. 

He was trustee of Eutgers College from 1868, and of Columbia 
College, New York, from 1881, until his death. He was also a 
member of the Board of Trustees of the Leake and Watts Orphan 
Home, and of the Presbyterian Hospital. He was Vedder Lec- 
turer at Eutgers, Kew Brunswick — which lectures were later pub- 
lished under the title, "The Psalter, a Witness to the Divine 
Origin of the Bible." 

He was instructor in New Testament Exegesis in the Union 
Theological Seminary of New York, in 1887, and in the same 
year at Hartford, in 1893 at Princeton. In October, 1894, he 
gave a course of ten lectures at the Lane Theological Seminary 
on the law. He received the honorary degree of S.T.D. in 1883 
from Columbia College, and of LL.D. from Eutgers College in 
1888. 

He published at different times a Sketch of the Noon Prayer- 
Meetings in Fulton Street, a Memorial of Theodore Freling- 
huysen, An Exposition of the Prophecy of Zechariah, in Lange's 
Commentary, and numerous articles on the prominent religious 
reviews. He was also one of the American Company of Bible 
Eevision, Old Testament Division, which extended over a period 
of ten years. 

Together with Dr. Schaaf, he was active in the organization of 
the Alliance of Eeformed Churches holding the Presbyterian 
system. He was elected President of the Alliance in 1892, and 
was still its president at the time of his death in 1896, and had 
his life been spared, he was to have presided at its Sixth General 
Council to be held in Glasgow, Scotland, in June of the same 
year, and to have delivered the president's address. 

His Family axd Domestic Life. 

Dr. Chambers was the son of William Chestnut Chambers, 
M.D., a native of Cumberland County, Pa., and Mary Ege, of the 
same, daughter of Michael Ege, Sr., iron master, and of large 
landed estate. 

Eev. Oliver Ege, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church 
for sixty years, was first cousin to Dr. Talbot Chambers. On the 
31st of May, 1841, Dr. Chambers was united in marriage to Miss 
Laura Mercur, daughter of General John Frelinghuysen, of New 
Jersey. It would be impossible to say how much she contributed 
by her energy, poise and beauty of character to his happiness and 
usefulness from that time onward. His love for her endured 
with all the force of a youthful passion to the end of her life, 
which occurred in 1893 at Portland, Oregon. She had accom- 

144 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

panied him there, he being a delegate from the General Synod of 
the Eeformed Church, to the General Assembly of the Presby- 
terian Church assembled there. Thus, and there, after more 
than fifty years of this happy union, she was sadly and suddenly 
taken from him, among strangers and far from home and friends. 
This blow was one from whose effects he never fully recovered. 
Till then, his domestic life, apart from occasional severe bereave- 
ments, had been unusually happy. The most entire confidence, 
the purest affection, marked all his intercourse with those of his 
household. It was the perfect exemplification of the Christian 
home. But not even the love and devotion of his children, which 
abounded towards him till the last, could fill the place thus 
suddenly made vacant in his heart. From that time onward, his 
thoughts turned more and more toward the home above, till it 
pleased God, not long after, to receive him into its glory and 
its peace. — Largely compiled from Rev. Dr, Coe's Memorial dis- 
course, and from data in Rev. T. F. Chamiers' ''Early Germans

BAEON" VON STIEGEL. 



The history of this very remarkable man. Baron Heinrich Wil- 
helm Von Stiegel, holds such an important place in the lives 
and interests of the Ege brothers, George and Michael, that it 
deserves historic perpetuation in this family connection. 

Baron Von Stiegel was born A. I). 1729, May 13, at Cologne, 
Germany, evidently of noble and wealthy parentage. At the age 
of twenty-one he determined to gather his portion of worldly 
goods, amounting to 40,000 pounds, and ventured forth into 
■^his new world, attracted by the many stories of its golden op-

The Bai-on entertained General Washington in this 
house in 1769. 




MANSION AT ELIZABETH 

At Elizabeth Furnace, Lancaster County, Pa. Here George and 
Michael Ege, found a home and were brought up by the Baron, 
after the death of their father in 1759. Here also General 
Washington was entertained over night by the Baron in 1777.

portimities. On the 31st of August, 1750, he sailed from Cowes, 
in the ship Kancy Thomas Canton, Master, which landed in 
Philadelphia, in whose list of (270) passengers Heinrich Wil- 
helm Stiegel's name is of record. During the first two years he 
travelled about seeking a suitable location for a home and busi- 
ness. He built a house in Philadelphia, making it his resi- 
dence for some years. 

In Nov. 7, 1852, he married Elizabeth Huber, daughter of 
Jacob Huber, an iron master, of Brickersville, Lancaster County. 

In 1757, the Baron bought the furnace property of his father- 
in-law. This he tore down and erected a new and much larger 
one on the original site, and named it Elizabeth, after his wife, 
the township also bearing the same name from this circuinstance. 
The next year, Feb. 3rd, 1758, his faithful wife died, leaving 
him with two little girls. Barbara and Elizabeth. She died at 
her father's house in Brickersville, and was laid to rest in the 
Lutheran churchyard there. 

The new furnace was soon in active operation, and among the 
Baron's first enterprises was the manufacture of stoves. This 
became at once a great success, attracting great interest from all 
directions for their beauty and utility, and soon created a large 
demand and sale. Some of these stoves are still preserved in the 
vicinity as valuable relics and curiosities. Ere long the Baron 
was the most progressive and prosperous iron master in Penn- 
sylvania. 

On October 24th, 1758, the Baron married as second wife, 
Elizabeth Holz-in, of Philadelphia, sister of Anna Catharine, the 
wife of George-Michael Ege. The marriage ceremony took place 
at the Holz (or Wood) home in Eoxborough, a near suburb of 
Philadelphia. The record of this marriage is preserved in the 
archives of "St. Michael's Lutheran Church, Germantown," in 
which record is named Michael Ege, as Witness. 

In 1759, January 19th, a few months after the Baron mar- 
ried, George-Michael Ege died, and at the urgent solicitation of 
the Baron and wife, Anna Catharine, the widow, and her two 
young boys, George and Michael, came to make their home at 
Elizabeth with them. 

The Baron became the guardian of his nephews, brought them 
up with a good education and taught them the iron business. 
The Baron had here built a large and substantial stone house, 
for a residence, which, from its imposing appearance, soon came 
to be called "The ilansion" by the people of the vicinity. This 
building is still in good preservation. It has been owned by the 
Coleman family and descendants from the date of its purchase, 
and the Baron's furnace estate, about 1778, at the end of his 
active career. 

147 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

In 1777, General Washington spent a night there as the guest 
of the Baron. The house is still prized for its historic interest, 
and the room in which Washington slept is shown to frequent 
visitors. The old furnace did service for a full century. 

By 1760, Elizabeth Furnace was in a highly prosperous condi- 
tion, the busy hum of industry gladdened the hearts of the many 
laborers and the community. Twenty-five substantially built 
comfortable homes sheltered the hands and their families, of 
which in all there were about seventy-five. The estate em- 
braced some 900 acres of land, most of it in forests of fine 
timber, where many hands also labored in cutting down and 
converting into charcoal for the use of the furnace. This same 
year the Baron bought a one-half interest in "Charming forge," 
near Womelsdorf, on the Tulpehocken Creek, Berks County. 
His partners were the Stedman Brothers. 

From its beauty of situation the Baron gave it this name. In 
1762, the Stedman Brothers, Charles and Alexander, purchased 
a tract of 729 acres of land in Lancaster County, in which, the 
Baron, having previously been associated with them, became a 
partner for a one-third interest for fifty pounds sterling. Soon 
after, he purchased their holdings (for 107 pounds 10 shillings), 
and became the sole owner. When being his skillful surveyor ho 
laid out the land for a town, built the first substantial house 
there, and named it "Mannheim," after a probable residence 
in Germany, and its complete counterpart, in plan. Two small 
log buildings preceded his occupation of the land. On this very 
beautiful spot, on the banks of the Chickies Creek, we find the 
Manheim of his ambition and vision of almost a century and a- 
half ago, now one of the finest and most substantial towns of the 
size in the State. 

He began his Manheim residence, also called "The Mansion," 
in 1763, building slowly and substantially, until finished in 1765. 
It vt^as situated on the northeast corner of the large centre square 
and East High street, the house itself being forty feet square, 
two stories, and with a dormer window attic, made of red brick 
imported from England, and transported in wagons from Phila- 
delphia, by his own teams. The second floor was divided by a 
long hall, on the front one long room, which was fitted up as a 
chapel, with arched ceiling. It contained a pulpit, from which 
the Baron himself often preached to his workmen, and sur- 
rounding community the sound doctrines of the Lutheran faith, 
to which frequent worshippers also came on font from ten to fif- 
ten mile=. The rear side of the hall on second floor, contained 
two good size rooms. The first floor rooms were similarly di- 
vided and elaborately finished, and furnished with handsome

carved wood work and doors, mantles and tiles, and the large 
parlor, with tapestry representing falconry and hunting scenes. 
Back of the main building were the kitchens and rooms for the 
attendants. On the roof, between the large chimneys at each 
end, was the famous balcony, from which on festive occasions, 
his finely educated band, brought from Europe, and also chosen 
from his workmen, entertained the Baron and his many favored 
guests with choicest strains of music. 

For many years much of the finest china and the tiles, illus- 
trating Scripture texts and scenes, remained in the house, the 
possession of a Mr. Arndt; also of the tapestry, much of which 
later was in the careful keeping in the Society rooms of the 
Historical Library in Philadelphia. Since then the fine mansion 
has been changed for business, a third story added, but much 
of the original walls remain, while a large collection of the 
Stiegel furniture, china tiles and glassware can be seen in the 
Banner and Long Museums, in Manheim. 

All this now is highly prized, and tells to the many visitors 
the high aspirations, refined and cultivated taste of the founder 
of their town. 

The success of Elizabeth Furnace, and his other iron inter- 
ests and enterprise, influenced him to plan for the fostering of 
industry and for the development of his Manheim venture. 
Between 1765 and 1768. he erected a large factory for the 
manufacture of glassware, the first work of the kind in this 
country. The building was so large that a four horse team 
could drive in it and turn around. It had a large dome shaped 
roof ninety feet high, entirely built of the same imported brick. 
Skilled workmen were brought from Europe to carry on the 
business. By 1769, the factory was run to its full capacity, 
with its thirty-five skilled and artistic operatives, each of 
whom were bound by stipulated contract to produce first-class 
work in all parts required, in artistic designs and hand-painting 
and decoration, for which they were to receive forty pounds, 
house rent and fire wood annually for such services. The 
products of the factory were very beautiful, embracing every 
variety of the finest glassware, in various colors. A remarkable 
characteristic of all this ware was a metallic ring which has 
never been successfully imitated. It found ready market in 
Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, besides great quantities 
sold in all the region of the nearer vicinity, so that much of 
this beautiful warJe is still in existence, and largely in the 
hands of relic-hunters, and held at almost fabulous prices. 
Much also can be seen in the fine collections of the museums 
before mentioned in Manheim. In 1769 and '70, the B'aron was 

149 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

considered one of the wealthiest and most influential men in 
Pennsylvania. All his enterprises, furnaces, and forges were 
being operated at their full capacity. He was accumulating 
wealth very rapidly. He had invested all his original 40,000 
pounds, and various large instalments received from Europe, 
as well as his earnings from his various industries, in lands 
and otherwise, — in fact in almost anything to which he was 
solicited, — much of which when the dark clouds of the Eevolu- 
tion began to break into the storto of war, proved to his 
detriment and final failure. About this same time, when en- 
larging his sphere of activity, on the large holdings of his so 
named Stiegel Company, he gave a mortgage on one-third of 
it all, viz., 14,078 acres of land to one Daniel Benezet for 
3,000 pounds. 

After the Baron's second marriage, he and his family alter- 
nated their residence between Philadelphia and Elizabeth Fur- 
nace, until about 1,765, when he began his Manheim improve- 
ments, when Elizabeth became their more permanent residence, 
dividing their time after the Manheim mansion was finished, 
between the two. Accumulating wealth very fast about this 
time made the Baron more ambitious still, and was living 
very extravagantly. He was largely entertaining friends from 
city and country, and banqueting them in almost royal style, at 
one or the other of his homes. In 1769, he built his tower-like 
castle, on a high hill of some 600 feet, not far from his Eliza- 
beth Furnace, known to this day — as "Thurm Berg" "Cannon 
Hill," "Stick Berg," and "Tower Hill." The tower was fifty 
feet square at the base, seventy-five feet high, ending with a 
platform, ten feet square at the top, built solidly of heavy 
timber, some of which timbers later found use in large barns 
and still to be seen there well preserved to this day. 

This was built both for a place of safety, and for the enter- 
tainment of friends. It contained several large banquet halls. 
On the summit was mounted the signal cannon, from which the 
welcome salutes were fired on these festive occasions. It was 
also the signal of a joyous time to all concerned, and pay day 
for workmen. 

While the Baron lived in Philadelphia, and managed his 
works in Lancaster, and adjoining counties, it was his custom 
to ride in his chariot, drawn by four fine horses, of which he 
was a great fancier. 

He was always suspicious of his surroundings, fearing rob- 
bery or danger of life. He traveled with his out-riders, and a 
pack of his favorite dogs running aiiead. His arrival at Man- 
heim was greeted with great joy, the worlonen gathered in the

roof balcony and welconied him with sweet musical strains from 
the fine instruments he had bought for them. It was a brief 
holiday for a good time. He treated his men with great con- 
sideration and kindness, and they honored him. His presence 
-was their highest joy. As before alluded to, he took great 
interest in their Spiritual welfare. 

In 1770, he set aside a lot and built a small church on it, 
naming it "Zion Lutheran Church." He appointed a board of 
trustees, and made them and the congregation responsible for 
one-half of the cost and value of the same. 

Finally the debt proving a burden to the infant congregation, 
at their urgent solicitation, he gave them a deed as follows: 
"Copy of Deed from Henry William Stiegel, and Elizabeth his 
wife, dated December 4th, 1772, to Peter Ereman, Henry Whor- 
ley, and Wendel Marzall, trustees and wardens, to and for the 
only use, purpose and benefit of the German Lutheran Congre- 
gation, conveying Lot No. 220, in Manheim, in consideration 
of five Shillings, and they yielding and Paying therefor unto 
the said Henry William Stiegel, his heirs and assigns at the 
town of Manheim, in the month of June yearly forever here- 
after, the rent of "One Eed Rose," if the same shall be lawfully 
■demanded." 

This obligation of the Eose Payment was observed for a few 
times, and when, because of his impending trouble, it was not 
demanded, it was soon discontinued and forgotten, and the 
deed and pledge also. And so for more than a century, the 
deed in its safe hiding place remained forgotten and unknown, 
when by some fortunate chance, in 1891, the deed was discov- 
ered. 

Descendants were inquired for and looked up, and the pay- 
ment revived, and the Anniversary of this payment ever since 
has become an occasion of great interest, held annually on the 
second Sunday of June, and payment made to a living descend- 
ant of the Baron, to whom now in memory and tribute it is so 
lawfully due. 

This interesting ceremony attracts hundreds of people from 
far and near, and has brought to light and life the almost for- 
gotten history of this remarkable man. 

In this same Christian spirit, the Baron had very materially 
aided the Lutheran Church at Brickerville, and in addition to 
his liberal contributions held a note from their trustees for 
100 pounds, for a loan. On one of his visits to the Church 
he was so pleased with the kindness and demeanor of the 
people, he gladdened their hearts by presenting the note to 
them, to be reckoned against them no more forever.

On September 10th, 1769, as Chairman of the Committee, he 
wrote the "Constitution of the old Brickerville Lutheran 
Church." This masterly instrument is still in force, having 
governed this congregation for almost a century and a-half, 
and within quite recent years, safely brought them through an 
otherwise disastrous litigation. 

To this document he signed his name, Heinrich William 
Stiegel. 

The Baron was truly a benevolent and Christian man, and 
while thus apparently ostentatious, he seldom used or signed 
his name as Baron, but yet his style and manner of living de- 
noted royalty. When he went abroad, which he did at intervals 
on business, he always wore his Baronial costume. On one 
such trip it is said he took his family with him. The account 
books of Charming Forge, now in the Historical Society 
Archives of Philadelphia, show that several times he drew 1,000 
pounds, as the means for a trip to England, but no mention has 
been found of his ever having revisited his favored "Manheim." 

But the darker clouds of trial and business distress began 
at length to break over the bright days of prosperity. The 
Baron had lived extravagantly, and the heavy outlay demanded 
by his various undertakings were exhausting his financial sup- 
plies, to meet them all. A number of people had preyed on his 
generosity. The expensive and costly built glass works and 
expenpivQ workmen were giving meagre returns. -The im- 
pending war cloud of the E evolution now about to break, over- 
shadowed and stagnated every branch of business, and failure 
even to collect money due proved too much for the great- 
hearted Baron. He made a brave effort to stem the tidal wave, 
and keep back the sheriff, but in vain. In October, 1774, he 
was incarcerated for debt. 

AVlien his numerous employees, who were devoted to him, 
heard of his being cast into prison for debt, they were filled 
with unutterable sorrow. 

On thie 15th of December, 1774, he wrote the following 
letter to his creditors from his Philadelphia prison: 

"Please take notice, that I have applied to the Honorable, 
the House of Assembly, for a law to relieve my person from im- 
prisonment. If you have any objections, please to appear on 
Thursday next at 3 o'clock in the afternoon at the gaol in this 
city, before the committee of grievances. 

Your humble servant, 

Henry William Stiegel."

PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

On Christmas Eve, 1,774, Baron Stiegel stepped out of 
prison, once more a free man. No clonbt the most appreciable 
Christmas gift he had ever received was this special Act of 
the Assembly of Pennsylvania. 

After his release, numerous friends advanced him money to 
enable him again to start his furnace at Elizabeth. All his 
interests were now in the hands of others. He was compelled to 
give up all his possessions at Manheim, the handsome mansion,, 
and its valuable contents, -and move again to Elizabeth. There 
was no more extravagant living for him. His costly outfit had 
been sold, and he did not try to replace it. His only hope was 
that the faithful furnace would help him pay every dollar of 
his indebtedness. 

At length the war broke out to his utter dismay, and seemed 
to take away the last ray of hope. Many of his debtors who 
withheld his money were among the Loyalists, and their prop- 
erty was confiscated. Others, even among the rich, who had 
been honored, feasted, and benefited by him, failed to come 
forth to aid him in this final effort, either by generosity or 
payment of just dues. And besides this, the war entirely cut 
off his accustomed returns from England. A gleam of hope, 
however, came to him in large orders from the Grovernment for 
cannon, shot, and shell for the Patriotic Anny. This tested the 
capacity of all the furnaces of the t'me, to their utmost ability, 
to supply the munitions of war. The Baron soon found the 
need of greater power, and he appealed to the G-overnment for 
aid in digging a canal to bring water from another -source a 
mile distant. They sent him a large number of Hessian pris- 
oners to do this work, but to feed and eare for them during the 
winter of 1777 greatly added to his burden of expense. 

In one extremity of need he gave his gold watch a^ pledge 
for the payment of two steers and some grain to feed them. 
Toward the close of 1778 the Government orders ceased, and 
his creditors once more began pressing him for money. 

He had made money on government orders, but not enough 
to meet all his obligations. His all absorbing thought and de- 
sire was how to satisfy all his creditors. He struggled man- 
fully for a few brief years longer, but ruin and disaster finally 
overthrew the great manly Baron. 

At the close of 1788, he was left penniless, with nothing left 
but his education. He rem.oved his few possessions to the 
Lutheran parsonage at Brickerville, to become their pastor. 
He there taught school, and between times surveyed land, and 
preached on Sundays. This combined effort gave him a scanty 
living, and though but forty-eight years of age, his spirit was 

153

crushed, from which lie was unable to rise. Some of his former 
employees for whose musical education he had paid, and aided 
in other material ways, paid him a small weekly sum for teach- 
ing their children. ]\'Iany also who had listened to his earnest 
sermons in the other brighter days now paid towards his sup- 
port out of sympathy. But where were the rich who had so 
often enjoyed his hospitality and substantial favors? 

In 1780, he moved into one of the small tenant houses he 
had built for others. It is said to be still standing, and shown 
to visitors as his last residence — in which he taught his little 
school a little while longer. 

Finally, the next year, he took his few scanty possessions to 
Charming Forge, the home then of his nephew, George Fge, 
where he acted as bookkeeper for the forge, and taught the 
children. 

In 1782, his devoted wife and companion through all his 
prosfperity, trials, privations and poverty, went to visit her 
relatives in Philadelphia. While there she sickened and died, 
and the Baron never saw her again alive. This final blow, 
added to his many misfortunes, caused him to lose all his spirit 
of enterprise, and to pine away. He died on the 10th of 
January, 1785, in the fifty-sixth year of his age, and according 
to years, still in the prime of life. 

He died at the "Charming Forge Mansion," home of his 
nephew, George Ege, built in 1777. 

A few treasured relics were left in their care and keeping, 
among them the plain "Gold Wedding Eing," inscribed H. W. 
Stiegel and Elizabeth Holz-in, a dictionary in four languages, 
a Bible, and a hymn-book. 

On a fly-leaf of the Bible is written in German a prayer by 
the Baron, evidently in the time of his adversity and great 
distress. These relics are now in the possession of descendants. 

This life story begins and reads like a romance, and ends 
with heart-breaking pathos. — Compiled in part, from Dr. J. H. 
Sieling's address before Lancaster County Historical Society vn 
1896." 

ISTOTE. 

I. D'. Eupp, a prolific writer and historian, who travelled 
from house to house through all this region collecting historic 
data in large measure, learned much from those then living 
of the Baron's life and enterprise. In his history of these 
counties, in which the Baron fostered his various industries, 
and of which the historian wrote and published about three- 
fourths of a century ago, he sums up as follows : 

"Baron Stiegel was undoubtedly, with all his eccentricities, 

154 



PENNSYLVANIA BRANCH. 

a man of great enterprise, of great skill in the arts, and of 
singular taste, as was manifest in the remarkable decoration 
of the interior of the Manheim mansion. He was a man of 
singular fortune. His vicissitudes in life were varied. In 
Europe a Baron, in America an iron master, glass manufacturer, 
a preacher, a school-master; now rich, then poor." 
"Sic transit gloria hominis." 

Note. 
A Modern" Co-incidence. 

In a suburb of St. Petersburg, Eussia, there is one of the 
largest iron manufacturing plants in the world. The village, 
forming that suburb, is the home of the large number of opera- 
tives in that plant, and is called Stiegel, named from its 
founder and head, a German Baron Stiegel, who was living 
until quite recently — if not still.

SKETCH. 

The Henkel family, as here forming a portion of the Stiegel 
genealogy, is one of very early history in the settlement of 
Pennsylvania. The Eev. Dr. Stapleton, of Jersey Shore, Penn- 
sylvania, has recently published and copyrighted a very com- 
plete history of this family. 

The original settler in Pennsylvania, from whom a long line 
of descendants are found in Penn'^ylvania and Virginia, was the 
Rev. Anthony Jacob Henkel, an exiled German Court Preacher. 
He landed in Philadelphia, in 1717, with his family, accom- 
panied also with his son-in-law Valentine Geiger. 

He must have remained in or near the city, as he was one of 
the first Lutheran ministers there, and founded the first Lu- 
theran Churches in Philadelphia and Germantown. About the 
time of the War of the Revolution, probably a little before, some 
of his children settled in Augusta County, Virginia, where 
numerous families of the name are among the substantial and 
influential people -of their several communities. 

From this exiled minister, the Henkel family contributed 
able and devoted ministers in unbroken succession, down to the 
Rev. Socrates Henkel, of comparatively recent years, who served 
for about fifty years among his kinsfolk and friends, with un-

tiring zeal and devotion, in the little historic church of his 
ancestors, at New Market, Virginia. He was a very influential 
citizen of his town and vicinity, and was universally esteemed 
and beloved, being especially noted for his loving service among 
the needy and helpless. 

The "Mermaid Inn," purchased by his son, Anthony, Jr., -of 
the first, in 1739, was the home of the widow until her death 
in 1744. This old inn was said to be situated on the main road 
to Philadelphia, most probably the road now known as German- 
town Avenue. Quite recently, through the earnest and patient 
research of Mr. Ambrose Henkel and other relatives of New 
Market, Virginia, the graves of the pioneer minister and wife 
were found in the cemetery of St. Michael's Lutheran Church, 
Germantown, and have been re-interred.

KOINEE SKETCH. 

The history of this family, of which quite a vigorous line of 
the name from the Stiegel alliance is above recorded, is one of 
very great interest. 

The Koiner ancestry, originally spelled Keinadt, has been 
traced back directly to the 16th century. 

The American representative of the family name, Michael 
Keinadt, born 1720, came to Pennsylvania in his young man- 
hood, about 1740. |He settled first for some years at or near 
New Holland, Lancaster County, where in the records of the 
Lutheran Church is recorded his marriage, February 21st, 1749, 
to Margaret Diller, of the same county. The Diller family is 
one from whom a large line of descendants have been, and still 
are, prominent in the State. The original Keinadt German 
name, we find, having undergone various changes in spelling, 
now to be commonly spelled Koiner, and also in "Virginia, 
Ooiner. 

In 1773, Michael Keinadt took up lands in Cumberland 
County, and a few years later the oldest son Casper, bought 
lands in the fertile and beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Vir- 
ginia. The parents soon followed and spent their remaining 
days there. Homes and farms of the original families are still, 
after a century's possession, held by descendants. The family 
have been prominent and prosperous during all these eventful 
years, and have had no small share in the growth and influence 
for good in their several communities. 

In March, 1892, it was determined to form an association, 
and to erect a monument to their early American progenitors, 
over their remains, which rest in the old cemetery of the 
church a few miles from Staunton, Va., formerly known as 
Keinadt's Church, now Trinity, the third built on the original 
site. 

This was successfully accomplished, and in October, 1893, 
the monument was unveiled, at which a gathering of some 
2000 descendants in re-union were present from several States, 
after which, a permanent organization was formed. 

Michael Keinadt, born 1720; d. 1796. Margaret Diller, his 
wife, born 1734; d. 1813.

Note. 

The Hunt family is a very old one both in England and in 
this country. The earliest record in England is that of Adam 
Le-Hunt, -of Nottinghamshire in 1295, and of a Ealph Hunt, 
who was loiighted about 1300. In America a Ealph Hunt, 
among other emigrants, settled on Long Island in 1652, and 
and died there in 1677. His children were Ealph, Edward, 
John, Samuel, x\nn and Mary. 

Of these Edward was the ancestor of the numerous New Jer- 
sey descendants, whose son Thomas was the father of the wife 
of Adam Ege.

The Schenck family in this country claim descent from Edgar 
de Schencken, Cliief Butler to Charlemagne, who about the 
year 800 granted to Edgar a title of nobility, with a Coat of 
Arms, viz., a "Shield in the form of a Goblet," the name 
Schencken signifying "the Cup Bearer." The line of descent is 
traced from Edgar, through the Barons of Fautchberg, to Christ- 
iames, 1225, then to Wilhelmus and Ludovicus in 1346. Thence 
through eight direct generations to Roeliff (Ealph), who emi- 
grated from Holland in 1650, and settled at Flatlands, Long 
Island. Then through three more generations to another Ralph 
— the father of Mary, the wife of John Ege.

hees and Maria, daughter of Uriah De Hart, Sixth Generation 
in line of descent from Simon De Hart, a Huguenot, who 
emigrated to this country in 1664, and settled on Long Island. 
Abraham J. Voorhees was also in the Sixth Generation in the 
line of Steven Coerte Van Voorhees. 

The name Van Voorkees is derived from their locality in Hol- 
land which was before the town of Hees, or Hies — the name 
thus signifying: from before Hees. The ancestor, Coerte Van 
Voorhees, was born in the early part of the 15th century. One 
of his sons, with a large family of grown-up children, April, 
1660, emigrated from Holland and settled in Long Island. 

The late Senator and Governor Voorhees, New Jersey, is 
of this family line. A history of the Voorhees family (of 725 
pages) was published in 1888, by Elias W. Van Voorhees.

SKETCH. 

The death of Ealph Ege, Aug. 7th, 1905, removed from his 
native town, Hopewell, N. J., a man who had been closely 
identified vsdth its interests, and where his memory will be 
cherished as a public-spirited citizen, ever giving time and 
money freely for the advancement of its interests, industries, 
the preservation of its historic landmarks, and the uplifting of 
its people. He was the son of Andrew and Sarah Voorhees 
Ege, and was bom on the farm known as Wissamenson, on the 
north side of Stony Brook, which had been in the possession of 
the Ege family since 1801. Here he spent his boyhood and the 
greater part of his life. From his earliest days he was fond 
of books and learning, and largely through his own efforts 
secured a liberal education, which enabled him to become a 
ready writer and a fluent speaker. From his boyhood days he 
loved the traditions of the Hopewell Valley, and was fond of 
relating them to ready listeners as he drove over the hills in 
after years. That no tradition, record or relic should be lost 

173 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

through his negligence seemed to be an ever-present thought, 
as shown by his valuable scrap books and diaries, covering nearly 
fifty years. 

Mr. Ege was a progressive and up-to-date farmer, and deeply 
interested in all matters affecting the farming community, and 
his voice and influence were ever used in encouraging the farm- 
ers to higher appreciation of the importance and dignity of their 
calling, as one of the noblest and most worthy of all professions. 
He had been a member of the Board of Managers of the New 
Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at New BTnnswick, 
President of the Mercer County Fair Association, which grew 
into the Interstate Fair Association, of which he was the first 
Vice-President ; President of the Mercer Oounty Board of Agri- 
culture ; at one time President of the State Horticultural Society, 
and was appointed by G-overnor Abbett a delegate to represent 
the State at the National Farmers' Congress, at Council Bluffs, 
Iowa, in 1890 He was also connected with the State Agricul- 
tural College. 

M:r. Ege also devoted much time and attention to local his- 
tory and genealogy, and his wide reading and personal 
researches made the information which he possessed invaluable 
to the State and community. He was a member of the Hun- 
terdon County Historical Society at the time of his death, and 
gave historical addresses on various occasions, one of the most 
notable being that at the unveiling of the Houghton Memorial 
in Hopewell in 1896. Mx. Ege was also interested in a great 
many of the organizations for the improvement of the town and 
people. He was prominent in Masonic circles, both in Lodge 
and Eoyal Arch Chapter of Masons. 

But it was in connection with the Presbyterian Church and 
Sunday-school that Mr. Ege's best work was done. In early 
manhood he became Superintendent of the Sunday-school, which 
office he held for forty years. His cheerful disposition, his 
kindly welcome, his hearty singing, and his organiziirg ability 
won for him a large place in the hearts and lives of over a thou- 
sand ehildren, who came under his influence during that period. 
At the fortieth Anniversary of the Hopewell Sunday-school, a 
sum of money was voted sufficient to start a Sunday-school in 
the West to be called "The Ealph Ege Mission Sunday-school.'' 
FoT many years he was an Elder in the First Presbyterian 
Church, of Pennington, N. J., and was instrumental in the 
organizing and building of a Church in Hopewell, of which he 
was an influential member, as Clerk of the Session, Trustee, 
member of the Choir, and Superintendent of the Sunday- 
school until his death in 1905.

In 1901, he was induced to write for publication, for which 
his extensive reading and tireless research eminently fitted him. 
These began to appear, first from time to time, under the title 
of "Pioneers of Old Hopewell" in the "Hopewell Herald." 

These articles, and otliers not then published, have been pre- 
served and recently published in book foirm by his widow, under 
the title he gave tliem — viz., "The Pioneers of Old Hopewell." 

From this volume and his Obituary, from the "Hopewell 
Herald," this sketch has been compiled. 

Note. 

The author is largely indebted to his friend and co-laborer, 
tlie late Ealph Ege, for aid in compiling and arranging gene-

SKETCH. 

The father of Mrs. Amy Dunn Ege was Isaac Dunn, called one 
of the "aristocrats of Old Hopewell." He was born February 
15, 1761, near New Market, where he spent his childhood. 
He was a Eevolutionary soldier, and when about twenty years 
of age, came to Hopewell. He married Jerusha, daughter of 
Thomas Blackwell. They had two sons and nine daughters, 
all of whom married except the youngest daughter. 

Isaac Dunn was a member of the New Jersey Assembly, was 
a deacon in the Old Baptist Church in 1808, and a delegate to 
the Philadelphia Baptist Association the same year. He was

one of the few who drove to church in his chaise and colored 
coachman, and with his silk stockings and gold knee buckles, he 
created quite a sensation among the plain, old-fashioned farm- 
ers of that period. He was also one of the Charter Members of 
the "Hunterdon County Bible Society" in 1816, his associates

SKETCH. 

In the genealogy of New England settlers is recorded the 
name of Timothy Hortman. 

In 1675 he served for a brief time as a soldier in King 
Phillip's war, but was released, on the importunity of his wife, 
on the plea that he had two children to support. Said Timothy 
was no doubt the ancestor of the Hortman family in New 
Jersey — the first one of whom was Peter Hortman, a settler in 
Aniwell Township. He was a justice of the peace, and so con- 
sidered a man of usefulness and importance at that early day. 

He had sons — Gabriel, a miller; Amos, a teacher, and ,Tohn. 
One of his sisters, Christiana, was the wife of William Golden, 
Sr., in 1780, and Charity, another, was the wife of James Sut- 
phin, of Amwell. 

John Hortman married Achsah Humphrey, daughter of 
John Humphrey, Jr. After hei- husband's death she married 
Philip Riley. This brings a reference to the Humphrey family, 
the earliest of whom was Stephen. His son, John Humphrey, 
Sr., who married Achsah Larison, whose only son was John, Jr., 
above mentioned, and who married Experience, daughter of 
Isaac Dunn, of Hopewell. Isaac, Achsah, Catharine, Henry, 
George, Andrew, Samuel, Elizabeth, and Stephen, all allied 
largely with other Hopewell families.

EGE GENEALOGY. 



SKETCH. 



There were three Andrew Smiths in succession among the 
early settlers of Hopewell Township, all of whom distin- 
guished themselves. To the oldest Andrew Smith belongs 
the honor of naming the township, Hopewell, in 1699. But 
in the published histories the oldest Andrew was overlooked, 
and to the second was given the credit of giving the name. 
The will of the first Andrew Smith was dated 1703. He left 
a legacy to his son, Andrew Smith, who married Sarah, 
daughter of Jonathan Stout, first settler, 

A Samuel Smith of this family was the author of "Smith's 
History of Kew Jersey."

nence. His name appears first in the records of Southhamp- 
ton, Long Island, in 1641, and in October, 1644, he was one 
of the deputies appointed to negotiate terms of union with 
the New England colonies. In the same month he was 
appointed agent to collect subscriptions for students at Har- 
vard College. He was licensed to preach previous to 1649, 
as in that year he preached at Southampton, and in the same 
year became the second pastor of the church at Hempstead, 
Long Island, later at Newtown in 1652, and while still pastor 
there died September, 1657. 

Eev. Mr. Moore had married, either before or soon after 
the emigration, Margaret, the daughter of Edward Howell, 
of Wedon, County of Bucks, England. 

She was of the noted Howell family of Wales and England, 
from whom all the Howells in America are descended, and 
can trace their ancestry back one thousand years. 

Edward Howell, the father of Margaret, came to America 
about the same time. He located first for a short time at 
Lynn, Massachusetts, where he is recorded as having taken 
up 500 acres of land. He removed to Southampton, Long 
Island, in 1640, and was one of its founders and a member 
of the Grovernor's Council of Connecticut. His death occurred 
about 1655. He had a son, John, who was also prominent 
in civil and military affairs of Southampton. 

Margaret, the wife of Eev. John Moore, and her brother, 
John, were both born at Marsh Gibbon, in the parish of 
Weygate, County of Bucks, England. Margaret was bap- 
tized there November 24, 1622, and her brother, John, Novem- 
ber 20. 1624. He died November 3, 1696, and the Howell 
Coat of Arms is engraved on his tombstone at Southampton. 

Eev. John Moore and Margaret Howell left a family of 
five children as the basis of a very long line of descendants. 
Nathaniel Moore, a grandson, was the pioneer settler in Hope- 
well Township, 1708. Many descendants of the Howell name 
also, through numerous alliances and for the past two centuries, 
have been among the distinguished families of the country. —

EGE GENEALOGY. 

Eebecca^, daughter of John Hart, son of the first John Hart, 
of Hopewell. He left four children — Philip, William, John 
and Eebecca — from whom there were many descendants. 
Another John of this family, born 1793, died 1832, married 
Charity Grolden, daughter of Captain Golden. She was left with 
six sons and three daughters. In 1842, when her youngest 
was but ten years old, she followed others of her family and 
quite a company to Cordova, Illinois, and purchased a large 
tract of virgin prairie land. Her children settled here, the 
sons becoming farmers and the daughters marrying, and where 
still many descendants remain and are influential citizens.

SKETCH. 

The Van Buskirk name appears both as surname and Chris- 
tian name in several family connections in this genealogy. 
Many of the Grcrman, Danish and Holland names of the early 
emigrants to this country had very interesting and significant 
meanings, among them that of Van Buskirk is specially strik- 
ing, meaning "the Church in the Woods." The spelling of the 
name has changed from the original Boskerck to Boskirck, and 
finally Buskirk, as now adopted and used. 

The original settler, Lourens Andriessen Van Boskerck, came 
from Holstein, Holland, in the summer of 1655. His name first 
appears in the records of New Amsterdam June 29, 1656, in 
the deed for a lot on Broad Street. He was then unmarried 
and a turner by trade, afterwards becoming a draper. Later he 
purchased a tract of land at Minhakwa, now Greenville, IST. Y. 
He took the oath of allegiance the 29th of November, 1665. He 
married September 12, 1658, Janetje Jans, widow of Christian 
Barentsen, with four sons. She brought him a fortune. They 
both died in 1694. They had four sons — Andries, Lourens, Jr., 
Pieter, and Thomas. From these a long line of descendants con- 
tinued the name to the present day. — From CJiamhers "Early 
Germans."

SKETCH. 

William Snook, of Holland, was the ancestor of this family, 
who came into the Hopewell region with other Dutch emi- 
grants through the E'aritan Valley to Somersett County. He 
was naturalized in 1730, probably very soon after his arrival. 
Hie did not settle long among his Holland friends, but came 
to Hunterdon County and took up a tract of land at the con- 
fluence of Eocky and Stony brooks of about 800 acres, where 
he built his cabin, and with the aid of his four sons, John, 
Philip, George and William, improved a farm of 500 acres 
of this tract. His son, Philip, was commissioned as captain 
in the Eevolutionary Army in 1776, and was a very brave and 
daring officer. 

The father died in 1760 and left a widow, four sons and 
five daughters, who soon were married and left large fami- 
lies of descendants. Some left for other localities — Captain 
Philip to western Pennsylvania. Others of the name are still 
in the vicinity.

SKETCH. 

Like many other families who settled in the Seventeenth 
Century in New Jersey from England, Holland and France, 
and who trace their ancestry to earlier centuries, the Sexton 
family claim the same antiquity. Allan Hale Sexton, of 
Albany, N. Y., in this family research visited the British Isles 
and found authentic records back as far as between 1400 and 
1500 A. D. 

The first of the family is said to have been George Sexton, 
who emigrated from England in 1663, and died at Westfield, 
Connecticut, in 1690. George, Jr., crossed over into Hunt- 
ington, Long Island, in 1689. Charles, son of George, Jr., 
born at Huntington about 1690, was married twice. He men- 
tioned fourteen children in his will. Many of these were bom 
and some, married in Long Island, no doubt remained there. 
The said Charles came to Hopewell about 1745 and settled 
on a portion of the Dt. Parke's original tract. In his will, 
dated January 24, 1751, he mentions his six sons and eight 
daughter?, viz. : Charles, Jr., George. Joseph, Nathaniel, 
Nehemiah, Jared, Japath. Hannah Piatt, Sarah Hallock, 
Esther Eogers, Elizabeth Adams, Keziah Brush. Bathsheba 
Hill, Mabel Stout.

NEW JERSEY BRANCH. 

One of the most prominent of this family name during his 
active and useful life in his community, preceding and dur- 
ing the Eevolutionary period, is that of Judge Jared Sexton. 
He was born in 173,7; married March 28, 1768, Annie, 
daughter of James Larison. He is noted as a skillful and 
trusted administrator and executor in the settlement of estates 
of his friends and neighbors in his community. 

After the death of the Hon. John Hart, in 1799, who had 
been Surrogate Judge of Hunterdon County and was the first 
member of the Legislature from the Hopewell district, and 
until his death, Jared Sexton was elected as his successor in 
the Legislature. At the expiration of his term he was 
appointed judge in the Court of Common Pleas, which he filled 
with ability until his death in 1785. Charles Sexton was a 
Revolutionary soldier.

SKETCH. 



Augustus Titus Ege was the only son of Titus Ege and Mary 
E'unkle and great-grandson of Adam Ege, an early Hopewell 
settler. He resided on a farm of the ancestral estate and was 
a very active man, not only in his agricultural pursuits, but 
equally active and influential in the community in its civic 
interests. The character of Mr. Augustus Ege stands as a 
model for the young men of his day. His word was as good 
as his bond, and when he said yes he meant it from the bot- 
tom of his heart. His political life, in which he was promi- 
nent, was an untarnished record of integrity and honesty. His 
every promise and pledge was fulfilled to the letter, and always 
for the best good of his country and community. He served 
his country as freeholder and township collector with the 
utmost fidelity, without spot of reproach or censure, and then 
when nominated to serve as sheriff of Mercer County, of which 
Ti-enton, the Capitol of the State, was also the county seat, 
he was elected by nearly 4,000 plurality, and from his town- 
ship the largest vote ever received by any candidate for any 
office. 

In his sudden and unexpected death a man valuable in 
public and private life was taken away, universally esteemed 
and mourned for by a very wide circle of friends and rela- 
tives. 

His end was truly pathetic. On a Monday morning in 
March, 1904, he left his home in his usual good health and 
spirits. He went first to Hopewell to attend a meeting of the 
directors of the Hopewell National Bank, of which he was a 
member, after which he went to TTenton to attend to some 
business with his friend, Surrogate Cornell, and when he 
reached his office, learned that he was ill and confined to his 
bed. 

A telephone message and reply bade him call and have an 
interview. After dining with a friend he went to the Sur- 
rogate's residence, and while in the act of being assisted to 
remove his overcoat by Mrs. Cornell, who welcomed him, he 
was about to take a step on tire stairs, when death came in- 
stantly, and the life-long friends failed to have their interview 
or see each other again in life.

NEW JERSEY BRANCH. 

Hiri funeral service was largely attended by many repre- 
sentative men of all professions in the country and a great 
company of sympathizing and mourning friends. He was in- 
terred at Harbourton, among the resting places of many of 
his ancestral line. 

He left a wife and their two children to mourn his loss — 
J. Mason Ege and Mrs. Henry B. Pittenger. 

His son is a successful merchant in Hopewell and bids fair 
to follow the active and useful civic career of his father. He 
succeeded his father as director of the National Bank. His 
name has been before the people of his township for election 
to various offices and has never suffered defeat; has served a 
second term in the Board of Freeholders, as chairman of com- 
mittees, and last year director of the board, and prominent 
for position in State Board of Eoad Commissions.

SKETCH. 

Mr. Ege was a native of ISTew Jersey and quite early in life 
embarked in business in New York City, but made his home in 
Jersey City, and soon identified himself with its interests. He 
was a most estimable citizen, a prosperous merchant and a very 
careful and successful man in business. He was the senior 
member of the firm of Ege & Otis, large wholesale dealers in 
leading staple articles of general food supplies for the great and 
growing city of New York. In his dealings with his fellow- 
merchants he had made a reputation for himself by his probity 
and truthfulness worthy of the commendation and emulation of 
all business men. He was naturally of a retiring disposition, 

200 



NEW JERSEY BRANCH. 

and could not be induced to accept conspicuous places of trust 
and responsibility which he was well able to fill. His large 
business demands made it obligatory to become a member of the 
Produce Exchange, and could have filled important positions 
therein had be been willing to accept them. He was elected to 
membership in the Jersey City Board of Aldermen from 1862 to 
1870, and President of the Board in 1868. For many years h& 
was one of the directors of the Bank of Jersey City, and when 
it was reorganized as the Second National Bank was again 
chosen to the same office and continued to serve as such up to the 
time of his death. 

He was a staunch temperance man, both as an advocate in 
its cause and its practice in life. He was held in high esteem 
in the Hedding Methodist Church, of which he was an active 
member, and which he served in almost every official position, 
being especially effective as Sunday-school Superintendent. 
Throughout Hudson County Mr. Ege was as generally known 
for his identification with the church of his choice as for 
his successful business energy and public spirit. His death left 
gaps in many circles. His influential course for the good of 
his city and community while in its board caused his name to be 
placed on one of its streets. 

He was a sufferer for several years from a malignant or can- 
cerous tumor in his head, which finally caused his death in 
1886. His devoted wife, who was Miss Margaret Reed, passed 
to her rest several years before him, a victim of tuberculosis. 
In her health and vigor she was also an active member of the 
Hedding M. E. Church and greatly beloved by her associate 
members. Her death was a great loss to the poor, to whom her 
aid and sympathy was ever manifested in their need and afflic- 
tion. 

Her amiable disposition and entire lack of false pride, with 
her desire ever to do good, made her a valuable acquisition to her 
church and society, in both of which her sad death was a felt 
loss. 

Jacob W. Ege, the only son of Horatio E'ge, was long asso- 
ciated in business with his father, and continued in the same 
for some years after his father's death. He was taken off in 
the very prime of life in the forty-fourth year of his age by an 
acute attack of gastritis and very brief illness. 

He was well known in his native city and very popular among 
his business associates and many genial friends. The news of 
his sudden death was a great shock to his family and friends. 
He left a wife and two children to specially mourn his loss.

SKETCH. 

Col. John Eeed, of Cornwall, England, came to America in 
1660, and probably settled on Long Island, where there were 
members of a Eeed family in 1652. 

One Thomas Eeed built a house for the Church of England 
minister at Middleburg in 1656. 

John Eeed, probably a son -of one of these, came to northern 
Hopewell from Long Island about 1706. He and his wife 
and family resided on the hill between Marshall's Corner and 
Woodsville. He was born in 1675 and his wife in 1680. He 
died in 1731 and his wife in 1765, leaving a long line of 
descendants, who still appear by name in many families and 
in the records of many recorded here. This family is one of 
gi'eat antiquity. The name is traced far back in English his- 
tory to the Celtic race.

SKETCH. 

The Larison family, of Hopewell Township and vicinity. New 
Jersey, is a very large one and allied by marriage with almost 
every family or descendants thereof of the early pioneers of this 
section. According to the tradition of the older Larisons their 
ancestor, John Larison (Jon Larsen) was a Danisli nobleman, 
who was compelled to flee from Denmark and lose his estates by 
confiscation because of taxes in 1660. He fled first to Scotland, 
and hearing that a large reward had been offered for his capture 
he went over to Ireland for a time and finally emigrated to 
America, leaving grown sons in Ireland, where they married and 
remained. Arriving in America John Larison, the Dane, pur- 
chased a large tract of about 1,700 acres on Long Island, near 
Brooklyn. His name is found on a rate list of NcAvtown, Long 
Island, in 1683. On May 22, 1683, John Larison. Jr., and 
Jemima Halsey were married at Newtown, and on December 20, 
1686, a John Larison, also of Newtown, married Mary Howell, 
a widow. She was probably the second wife -of John, Sr., the 

203 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

Dane. Her first husband is thought to have been the brother of 
Margaret Howell, who married the Eev. John Moore. 

William Larison, of John, the Dane, came to Hopewell with a 
great migration of Newtown families. 

Tradition says that of the six sons of John, Sr., two were 
killed by Indians, George settled in Pennsylvania, William in 
Hopewell and others settled near Chester, in Morris County, 
where John, the Sr., spent his last days and found his last rest- 
ing place, 

John, the Dane, had a very superior education and gave his 
children the best advantages available at that time, so that, in 
addition to their employ in agriculture, they were a race of 
school teachers and in active business as well. This fact made 
its impress on the generations following, among whom have been 
shrewd business men, educators and leaders in their respective 
communities. — Compiled from "Hopeivell Pioneers"

SKETCH. 

The first of the Golden family name, which appears so fre- 
quently both by Christian and surname among descendants of 
this family genealogy, is that of William, who in a group of sev- 
eral families arrived in Boston in 1640. 

William Golden is enrolled among the Massachusetts Baptists 
who were banished from the colony at the time of the Puritans' 
persecution. In company with ?everal others he left Massa- 
chusetts in the summer of 1643 and came to Gravesend, Long 
Island. 

William Golden there became a large land owner and also on 
Manhattan Island, a portion of which now in the heart of New 
York City was long known as Golden's Hill. 

Among the freeholders of Gravesend in 1656 are the names 
of William Golden, Joseph Golden, Eichard Stout and others, 
whose descendants afterward became the pioneers of Hunterdon 
County, N. J. 

In 1698 Joseph Golden was registered in Long Island as an 
Englishman. Not long after the Goldens, father and son, all 
settled in M'onmouth County, New Jersey. There, in 1704, 
Joseph purchased a farm of 130 acres near the village of Marl- 
boro, and later another tract of 90 acres in East Jersey, in which 
transaction the names of Joseph, Sr., and Joseph Golden, Jr., 
were signed. 

William Golden is recorded in a history of Monmouth County 

208 



NEW JERSEY BRANCH. 

as having become a permanent resident there, and with Richard 
Stout and others founded the Middletown Baptist Church. 

In 1,734 Joseph Golden, Jr., purchased 200 acres in Hopewell 
Township from Thomas Houghton, thus becoming a pioneer 
there and a permanent settler. 

These early Goldens were enterprising farmers and land lovers, 
adding to their holdings from time to time, dividing and de- 
vising them to the following generations, some of which names 
and farms are owned by descendants to this day. 

The Golden family, of Hopewell, were not only among the 
pioneers, but also one of the patriot families of the Revolu- 
tionary period; all four of the sons of Joseph, Jr., who were 
living at that time were enrolled in the Continental army. —

SKETCH. 

Daniel Dilts, tradition says, was one of two brothers, Harmon 
and Daniel, who came to this country about 1700. A Dilts of 
another family came over with Daniel from Germany, who sold 
his time to Daniel and afterwards married his daughter. Daniel, 

209 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

1st, had a son, Daniel, 2nfl, and probably Morris. Daniel, 2nd, 
b. 1741; d. 1837; m. Eebecca Merlett, b. 1743; d. 8, 7, 1832. 

In 1802 Daniel, 2nd, bought (173) acres of land on Schooley's 
Mountain, above Middle Valley, later the Geo. Lindabury farm. 

Both Daniel, 2nd, and Morris had children, from which a large 
line of descendants have followed to this day. — See Chambers 
''Early Germaiifi of New Jersey." 

The recent deatli of Dr. Stiles M. Woodburn, of Towanda, 
Pa., prompts this brief sketch, uniting as it does the Ege-Wood- 
burn alliance of the Pennsylvania branch and the Dilts-Ege alli- 
ance of the ISTew Jersey branch. 

Dr. Woodburn was born June 20, 1850, in Newville, Pa., son 
of John and Isabella Dunlap Woodburn. 

The ancestor of this large family was James Woodburn and 
wife. Margaret Martin. James was of Scotch-Irish lineage, born 
1764, and came to America in 1788 and settled in the beautiful 
and fertile Cumberland Valley, where many of the descendants 
still reside, and where Dr. Woodburn spent his early life. He was 
educated in the common schools and in the Pennsylvania State 
College. He graduated in medicine in 1872 and settled in 
Towanda, Pa., where he began and continued in the practice of 
his profession until his recent death. In 1871 he married Mar- 
garet E. D'ilts, of Eingoes, IST. J., b. March 3, 1845 — daughter 
of Leonard K. Dilts, b. April 18. 1812; d. April 9, 1864, 
and Elizabeth B. Eobbins, b. June 6, 1807; d. April 2, 1866; 
m. January 10, 1832. Both the Dilts and Eobbins families 
were from old original settlers in ISTew Jersey and variously 
allied with Ege descendants. Mary K. Dilts, an older sister of 
Mrs Stiles M. Woodburn, was also allied by marriage with the 
samf- Woodburn family, her husband being the Eev. J. S. Wood- 
burn, now deceased, and the uncle of the doctor. 

Dr. Woodburn was a member of the Presbyterian Church, a 
member of State and County Medical Societies, represented the 
State Board of Health, was Pension Examiner for nine years, 
and a member of ToM^n Council. In the forty years of his resi- 
dence in Towanda he was one of the foremost men in all lines 
of advancement. He was truly an ideal man, in whom all con- 
fidence vras ever placed. He leaves a heritage that will out- 
last all the monuments that could be placed over his resting 
place. 

He is survived by liis widow ajid two children, Dr. Charles 
M. Woodburn, of Towanda, and Mrs. Charles H. Pearce, of 
Binghamton, N. Y. 

The maiden name ]\Iartin of the first ancestress of the Wood- 
burn family in Pennsylvania lias been perpetuated through suc- 
cessive generations to living descendants of this day. There 

210

have been four John Martin Woodburns in direct line for four 
generations. The first John M., b. 1808; m. 13, 15, 1830, 
Ann Dorothea Ege, b. 7, 25, 1810; d. 2, 8, 1873, and his sister, 
Jane Elmira Woodburn, b. 4,5,1813; d. 5,26,1850; m. 10,7, 
1829, Joseph Arthur Ege, Sr., her brother, b. 12, 10, 1805 ; d. 
12, 16, 1861. The Woodburn-Ege alliance is represented by 
seventeen families and the Ege- Woodburn by twenty-five. The 
children of these two early marriages numbered twenty-five and 
were therefore double first cousins. The two Ege names of these 
alliances here named were first cousins of the father of the 
writer— T. P. E.

SKETCH. 

Among the persecuted Huguenots who fled from France about 
1665 and found an asylum in England was one "Chambellon." 

Owing to the great fire in London in 1666 the refugee re- 
moved to Ireland. Like many other Huguenots he changed his 
French name for an English equivalent, viz., Chamberlin, 

The tradition in the older family was that three sons of the 
refugee came to America about the beginning of the 18th Cen- 
tury, the ancestor of Col. William Chamberlin settling in Hun- 
terdon County. 

Col. Chamberlin was born September 25, 1736, and was mar- 
ried four times and was the father of twenty-five children, the 
youngest of which was Moses, born November 8, 1812, and who 
was still living as late as 1900, probably a short time later. 
The eventful lifetime of father and son embracing a period of 
one hundred and sixty-four years at that date. 

Col. Chamberlm was a brave soldier and rendered valuable 
service in the Eevolutionary struggle, being Lieutenant Colonel 
of the 2nd Eegiment, Htinterdon County Volunteers, and was 
in frequent battles and skirmishes. 

At the battle of Germantown, October 3-4, 1777, he had a 
sad experience. His oldest son, Lewis, then eighteen years of age,

went to visit his father on some business, and learning that a 
battle was about to take place decided to remain with his father, 
and though not an enlisted soldier took a position in his father's 
regiment and went into action with it. During the engagement 
he was struck on the knee with a spent cannon ball and for the 
want of prompt surgical attention he died on the field. 

In 1791 Col. Chamberlin removed from New Jersey to Buffalo, 
Valley, Union County, Pa., where he purchased 600 acres of 
land. He died August 21, 1817, aged eighty-one years. A 
marble shaft marks his resting place in the cemetery at Lewis- 
burg, Pa. 

Some of his numerous posterity married and remained in New 
Jersey, but others followed the father and were soon scattered 
in other localities. 

An incident worthy of mention occurred during his Revolu- 
tionary experience. "The Colonel owned a mill near Clover Hill, 
Hunterdon County, which was burned by a foraging party of the 
British in 1776, and they pressed his colored man and a team 
into service to drive a wagon loaded with ammunition. The man 
pretended that he could not manage his team and told the 
officers that the horses were not accustomed to being driven 
beliind other teams, but if they were put in the lead they 
would be more manageable. The officers then placed him in 
front, and coming soon to a long descending hill he whipped 
his horses into a run and succeeded in taking the load into 
the American lines, which were not far distant, although the 
bullets fell thick and fast around him as long as he was within 
range." — From Penna. "State Library at Ha/rrisburg and Hope- 
well Pioneers."

HISTORIC SKETCH. 

The Stouts 'of New Jersey are descended from John Stout, of 
Nottinghamshire, England, whose son, Eiehard Stout, emigrated 
to Long Island about 1640. Eiehard married Penelope Van 
Princes, a widow, who with her husband. Van Princes, sailing 
from Holland, was stranded near Sandy Hook. Her husband 
having been ill on the voyage was unable to travel farther, and 
being attacked by Indians was killed. His wife was badly 
wounded, but managed to find shelter in a hollow log, where 
she was found by a friendly Indian, who cared for her and treated 
her wounds until her recovery. 

Eiehard Stout was one of the patentees of Gravesend, Long 
Island, in 1745, and in 1765 was one of twelve to whom the 
Monmouth patent was granted, he thus becoming one of the 
original permanent settlers of Monmouth County, New Jersey. 

Eiehard, b. in England; d. 1705. His wife, Penelope, b. in 
Holland 1620; d. 1712. In Eichard's will, dated June 9, 1703, 
he mentions "his sons, John, Eiehard, James, Jonathan, David 
and Benjamin; his daughters, Mary, Alice and Sarah; his 
daughter-in-law, Mary Stout, and her son, John, and his 'kins- 
woman,' Mary Stout, daughter of Peter Stout." 

Jonathian, the 4th &on, who married Anna Bollen, was the 
pioneer of the family in Hopewell Township, whose descendants 
carrying down the name have been more than numerous and 
more or less allied with every prominent family of the early 
settlers and their descendants to the present day. 

The family preceded the Eevolutionary days and gave their 
full share of devotion to the great and heroic struggle of Inde- 
pendence. 

Among the sons of Jonathan were Col. Joseph Stout and 
Captain David. His oldest, John, was the father of three other 
patriot sons, Nathan, Moses, Abraham and his son, Solomon 
Abraham, and son fought side by side at the battle of White 
Plains, in which Solomon was killed by a shell. Another, 
Abraham Stout, served with distinction all through the war. 
There was also a Captain Nathan, who wrote a very complete

when he took a superannuate relation at the Conference of that 
year, and died two weeks later. Rev. Mr. Walton was a native 
of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. During his ministry of forty- 
six years he was very successful in the various demands of the 
Church and the advancement of Christ's Kingdom in the world. 
He received over a thousand members into the branch of the 
Church he so well represented. He raised for building pur- 
poses about $27,000, for missions over $83,000 and many dollars 
for other claims, and thus fully merited the "Well done ! good 
and faithful servant" of "the Master." Their children as fol-

SKETCH. 

Alliances of this widely extended family with that of both 
early and later generations of Adam Ege deserve this mention, 
and especially because among the alliances represented and re- 
corded in this history and genealogy the Hart name heads forty- 
four families of descendants. 

This notable family is descended from a John Hart of 
England, who settled first quite early in Massachusetts and later 
in Newtown, Long Island. His will, proved in 1761, names a 
family of five children. The oldest son, John, of the next gener- 
ation was a resident of what is now Lawrenceville, N. J. By 
his wife, Mary, he left sons, John, Ealph, Nathaniel, Edward and 
Joseph, and probably daughters. 

By the will of Nathaniel, dated January 22, 1742, he names 
these brothers, and appoints his brother, Joseph, and John, son 
of his brother, Edward, as executors of said will. 

Edward, the fourth son above mentioned, became a very im- 
portanit and useful citizen in church and colonial affairs in Hope- 
well and region of this part of the State. He was also an early 
soldier in its defence. He was commissioned June 25, 1746, by 
colonial authorities to raise a company of one hundred men to 
undertake an expedition against the subjects of the French King 
at Canada. He named this company the "Jersey Blues.'' 

The Hon. John Hart, now always referred to as "Signer of 
the Declaration of Independence," was the son of Captain 
Edward. Hon. John Hart was born sometime before 1714, at 
which time, February 14th, his baptism is of record. He died 
when "about 67 years," as record states. His will was dated 
April 16, 1779, and proved May 26, 1779. His Bible recorded 
the death of his wife, doubtless written by himself, as follows: 
"October 20, 1776. Departed this life, in the 55th year of her 
age. Deborah, wife of John Hart, who left twelve children and 
twenty-two grandchildren behind her." 

224 



NEW JERSEY BRANCH. 

The history of the life and times of the Hon. John Hart has 
been fully written, and so needs only brief reference here. He 
was well educated for the stirring times in which he lived, ani 
distinguished by his useful and active career in the welfare of 
the community, in church and colonial affairs. Besides his 
active business interests, his large farm and large share in the 
mills and manufactures of his vicinity, and from the fact of his 
name being so frequently seen on public documents, is evidence 
of his prominence, ability and usefulness. Previous to his public 
life as a politician, he was much in demand in the settlement 
of the estates of his neighbors and in the discharge of his duties 
in the minor offices of counsel and advice, which invariably fell 
to the lot of every enterprising and public-spirited citizen. 

He was elected to the Colonial Legislature in 17 Gl, and from 
that time on and during the Eevolutionary period, until his death 
in 1779, his time and service were devoted to public affairs. His 
private business and care of farm, homestead and mills was 
largely left to the conduct of his oldest sons, Jesse and ISTathaniel. 

Ten of the children named married and had families, and a 
few years after his death the sons left their native homes and 
scattered to other lands, settling in Western Virginia, Pennsyl- 
vania and Kentucky, making history therein; some of them be- 
coming very successful in business and others distinguished as 
politicians and statesmen. 

Edward, the 3rd son of Hon. John Hart, settled in Virginia. 
His daughter, Deborah Hart, married Major William Booth, of 
Virginia, a soldier in the War of 1812, and their daughter, Har- 
riet L. Booth, married General Peter Ege, Civil War, of the 
Pennsylvania branch, and a cousin of the author. — T. P. Ege.

SKETCH. 

The Blackwells are of English origin, and must have been of 
considerable importance in England, as no less than six towns in 
the realm bear the name of Blackwell. A "Coat of Arms" also 
bear evidence of the same. 

Robert Blackwell was the first ancestor of the name in 
America. He settled first at the town now known as Elizabeth, 
N. J., where he engaged in merchandise in 1676. About that 
time he married a daughter of Capt. John Manningham, of 
Manning's Island, in the East Eiver, of which island and farm 
he later became the owner, and settled there. 

From him it soon became known as "Blackwell's Island," and 
still after two centuries retains the name. 

Eobert Blackwell, Jr., early settled at N'ewtown, and about 
1700 settled at Hopewell. His son, Francis, later owning mills 
and land there, which became the property in line of his son, 
Eev. John Blackwell, a Baptist minister in Hopewell. The 
descendants of the name have been numerous and became influ- 
ential citizens, continuing so to the present time.

SKETCH. 
The large family of Hoagland name in the counties of Hun- 
terdon and Somerset, N. J., are descended from Christopher 
Hoagland, of Haarlem, Holland, an early emigrant to New 
Amsterdam (New York). He married Katrina Krieger, also of 
Holland, June 28, 1661, in New York, where their marriage is 
of record, and also the births of their several children. 

Some of his children, about 1700, settled on the branches of 
the Earitan Eiver in the counties above named, where they took 
up large tracts of land. Among the names of those specially 
mentioned are Amos Hoagland, a great-grandson of Christopher, 
who settled in Hopewell Township, and married Mary, daughter 
of John Titus, and their son, John Hoagland, who married 
Sarah, daughter of John Stout, and their son, John Stor.t Hoag- 
land, who married Eebecca A. Mershon, daughter of Joab Mer- 
shon, all of which names are closely allied with Ege descend- 
ants herein recorded. — From, partial footnote "Hopewell Pio-

SKETCH. 

The ancestor of the Titus famil)^ in America was Robert 
Titus, of Stanstead Abbey, of Hertfordshire, England. Silius 
Titus, a noted English soldier and politician (b. 1623; d. 1704), 
was probably a son or brother s son of Eobert. The name Silas, 
from the Latin Silius, is frequent among the Titus name in thid 
country. Silius claimed to be of Italian descent and of the same 
family as the Eoman Emperor, who was the instrument in the 
hands of God in the fulfillment of prophecy in the destruction of 
Jerusalem, A. D. 70. 

Silius was captain in the regiment of Colonel Ayloffe and took 
part in the siege of Dono,gton Castle, in Hertfordshire, in 1644. 
He was an ardent Presbyterian, as were the early family here, 
which seems also to point to this English source. — "Dictionary 
of Biography, London, 1898." 

E'obert Titus and his wife, Hannah, of this line emigrated to 
America in the spring of 1635, landing at Boston, and settled 
in Weymouth, Mass. "Ship Hopewell, Captain Bunlock : Robert 
Titus, age 35; his wife, Hannah, age 31, and their children, 
John, age 8, and Edmund, age 5." — Emigrant Bccords. 

Four other children, born in this country, were Samuel, Abiel, 
Content and Susannah. Of these Content, b. 3, 28, 1743, was 
commissioned as captain by the Crown 12, 30, 1689. He settled 

235 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

at Newtown, Long Ipland, where he filled many offices of trust 
and responsibility. He was also a ruling Elder in the Presby- 
terian Church. His son, John, came to New Jersey among the 
first pioneers of Hopewell and settled at Stony Point, near 
Pennington. His son, John, Jr., was the father of Anna Titus, 
the wife of Samuel Ege, son of Adam. — From "Pioneer'^ of Old 
Hopewell," by Ralph Ege.

family, and among Titus descendants along line follows

OBITUAEY. 

The Presbytery of New Brunswick, in session at Frenchtown, 
N. J., June 27, 1905, unanimously adopted the following 
Obituary of our departed brother prepared by Eev. Dr. Walter A. 
Brooks, and ordered to be entered in full upon our Minutes, and 
a copy to be sent to the family of the deceased. 

Attest : A. L. Aemstrong, 

Stated Cleric. 

The Eev. Albert Clark Titus was born in Trenton, October 
9, 1847, of a family long identified with the Presbyterian 
Church. He made his confession in Christ in the First Church 
of Trenton, April 13, 1866, at the age of eighteen. He pre- 
pared for college in the Trenton Academy and the State Normal 
School and graduated from the College of New Jersey in 1869. 
He then entered Princeton Theological Seminary and graduated 
with the class of 1872. 

He was I'censed by this Presbytery April 10, 1872, and re- 
ceiving a call to the church of Newport, Pa., was ordained and 
installed by the Presbytery of Carlisle as pastor of that church 
on July 9, 1872. He fulfilled a useful pastorate of three year^ 
in Newport, and in 1876, receiving a call, he removed to the 
Presbyterian church at Andover, New York. After a service of 

237 



EGE GENEALOGY. 

four years he was recalled to Trenton, his native home, to assist 
his brothers in the conduct of the manufacturing business left 
in their hands by the death of their father. He relinquished 
the active service of the ministry with great regret, but felt it his 
duty, as the oldest son, to devote himself to the care of the 
family interests. On his return to Trenton he associated himself 
with the Fourth Presbyterian Church, in whose pulpit he fre- 
quently preached, and of whose Sabbath-school became for a time 
a true and faithful superintendent. In the past few years he 
was in the congregation, and a helper in the work of the Pros- 
pect Street Church, where he conducted a class of boys and 
young men in the Sabbath-school, and where his participation in 
the prayer meetings of the church were especially helpful. 

An affection of the heart made his last year a time of much 
weakness and suffering, but patiently borne. He died May 1, 
1905, leaving a record of unassuming and faithful service for the 
Lord, whom he loved.

SKETCH. 

John Quick, the elder son of Francis. John Quick married 
Elizabeth Stout, daughter of Benjamin and Euth (Bogart) 
Stout. Moses Quick, the son of John, married Sarah Sexton, 
daughter of Judge Jared Sexton, of Hopewell. Between the 
years 1795 and 1840 Moses Quick was a very extensive dealer in 
real estate, his name appearing very frequently on the land 
records of the vicinity. There were numerous descendants of 
this Quick family — names of other Johns, Benjamin and Levi 
being frequent. Mary Quick, of John, mentioned above, was 
the wife of George Ege, son of Adam, the Ege ancestor of the 
Hopewell region.
