DEDICATION. 

This history is dedicated to tlie immense Geil family, 
who are interested in this work, and who manifested a 
very active part in furnishing me with much valuable in- 
formation. 

These contributions are legion, and for their efficient 
work many thanks are due. Among the oldest now living, 
who was greatly interested in this history, and who fur- 
nished many points of interest, was my brother-in-law, 
Jacob Geil, S;; , -cf Edom, Rcckinfjham Co., Va. (See No.

GEII. TITSTORY I-OR SALE. 

The Geil Family History is on sale at $1.40 per copy, 
postpaid. Send all orders and money to Joseph H. 
Wenger, Sonth English, Iowa, or to David S. Geil, South 
English, Iowa. 

P. S. Please lose no time in ordering books, as the 
edition may become exhausted. All parents should see 
that each one of their children is supplied with a copy, to 
be handed down to coming generations. 



EXPLANATION. 

Xo. 10 mciins the tenth family reccirdt'd. 

Tliird generation means the third step from the ancestor 
down. 

The figure 8, following the word " generation," refers 
to No. 8, where the parents are found; as, 1-2-3, etc., which 
indicates the order of their birth in the family from which 
they came. 

After the name and date of birth comes, for instance, 
No. 30, which indicates where the family of children is 
recorded farther on. 

For example, take some of your best-known relatives, 
use numbers, paying no attention to pages. 



PREFACE. 

The adage, " Many men have many minds," is a fact 
which dates beyond tlie memory of man. 

For the subject at issue we will consider the eagerness 
of the stockman to fully and without blemish have all 
his stock recorded and numbered in a lawful way; and 
yet many people, careful in such matters, will neglect the 
nativity and general points of their own ancestors. The 
truth of this is manifested in millions of people, who are 
more interested in pure-bred stock (all for the sake of the 
mighty dollar), than in the knowledge of our Christian 
ancestors, who left the old country because of religious 
persecution. These ancestors paved the way for our spir- 
itual and financial prosperity. 

Reader, please wipe the tears from your eyes, provided 
you have sympathy enough to produce any, and think of 
the benevolence of your hard-working Christian ancestors. 
Some, especially the ungodly, perhaps seldom, if ever, en- 
tertain a thought of thankfulness to their noble progeni- 
tors who cared for thom, much less to the God who 
created and preserved them. These facts can not be de- 
nied. 

The writer is historically inclined. He has completed 
three family histories, in each of which there is some 
reference to the Geil family. This created a desire on the 
part of David S. Geil, of this place, and other Geils, for a 
history. They urged the writer into the work. 

Your humble servant, at the age of 11 years, promised 
to do what he could and to leave the remainder for David 
S. and others to complete. 

We must not fail to give due credit to Jacob Geil, Sr., of 
Edom, Rockingham Co., Va., now past 84 years of age, 



for some of the points concerning his ancestors. These 
facts would soon have been lost forever. How very im- 
portant, then, that data for these genealogies be properly 
secured before it is too late. 

The Geils are very numerous. They are scattered over 
America, some even residing in foreign lands. 

The writer is personally acquainted with many of them, 
who have married into my relationship. These include 
the W'engers and Beerys. (My mother was a Beery.) 

The Geils are a fine people and yet. as in many families, 
there is an occasional "'black sheep" among them; surely 
this is not uncommon, even in the best of families. 

The w^riter has often thought it would be interesting 
to have a genealogy extending from Adam and Eve, noting 
all points of importance down to the present time. Would 
it be interesting? Yes, and no. The objectionable part 
might lead us through dark deeds that would cause us to 
shudder. We do not know what some of our ancestors 
did during the long, dark ages. We do not know whether 
or not some of them were heathens, cannibals, cutthroats, 
Arabs, Jews, or Gentiles. But one thing we do know, and 
we are proud of it, that those of our ancestors who came 
to America did so in order to escape from inhuman per- 
secution because of their religious doctrines. They came 
to America, where they enjoyed religious liberty. 

May the reader, then, refer to the history of the martyrs 
when they consider that we are in gospel America. The 
moral comes to us. As an enlightened people, do we at 
all times live up to our knowledge and opportunities? 

As the Geil ancestry comes from Germany it may be 
interesting to the English-speaking part of the Geil fam- 
ilies to note that the word " Geil." in German, means 
"horses" in English; while the familiar name of " Gowl" 
means " horse." 

The mother of the David S. Geil previously mentioned 
was a Wenger and a first cousin to the writer, while 
David S.'s wife is my grandniece. Jacob Geil, Sr.. aged 
84 years, married my sister, Mary Wenger, who occupied 
the old home farm where the writer was born, at Edom, 
Rockingham Co., Va., Nov. 15, 1835.

Religious persecution and political oppression brought 
millions to America, and from 1682 to 1776 Pennsylvania 
was the central point of emigration from Germany, Swit- 
zerland and otlier countries. Penn's liberal views, and the 
friendly attitude of the government of Pennsylvania and 
New York toward them, induced them to come to this 
colonial province. 

From 1700 to 1730 the influx was so great as to attract 
public attention. .\s it was found that these harmless 
people were a source of much benefit to the new country, 
objections to their presence were withdrawn. They were 
those of whom Governor Thomas, of Pennsylvania, in 
1738 said: " Tliis province has for some years lieen the 
asylum for tlie distressed Protestants of Germany and 
Switzerland." I verily l)elieve it may truthfully be said 
that the present flourishing condition of America is due 
to the economy and industr)- of these harmless and law- 
abiding people. 

The pioneers and tlieir descendants braved the dangers 
incident to life in the wilderness among wild beasts and 
savage Indians. They had, also, to endure many incon- 
veniences of pioneer life. 

For instance, they had the plow with the wooden mould 
board; harness made of hickory withes; wagon wheels 
made of cut l)locks, and without tires; the hoe and the 
reap hook. These few things constituted their farming 
outfit. 

The log cabins were constructed without perhaps a 
single nail, and if the building had any window, greased 
paper or skins were used instead of glass. There were no 
cook stoves, no sewing machines, no pianos, no fine 
clothing nor rufi^es. These humble people had no oppor- 
tunity to get such luxuries; neither did they want them. 

The men were engaged in clearing the forest and tilling 
their small fields, while the women found employment, 
not only about their household duties, but in operating the 
hemp and flax break, the spinning wheel and the loom, 
which produced the linsey and tow linen that clothed the 
young men and maidens when they appeared at the mar- 
riage altar. 



Tlieir plain, healthful diet alternated something like this: 

Milk and mush for supper, and 
Mush and milk for breakfast. 

All these things made history long before the " dude " 
was born, and before the existence of the tramp, the pick- 
pocket, the grafter, the robber and the murderer. What 
a contrast the present affords with the period nearly 200 
years ago! Religious persecutions and political oppres- 
sions brought millions to America, and from 1682 to 1776 
Pennsylvania was the central point of rescue. 

Is there any question in your mind, dear reader, as to 
what your condition would have been had our ancestors 
remained in tyrannical lands, instead of making it pos- 
sible for us to enjoy the prosperity of .American liberty? 

May we, in thankfulness, aspire to everything that is 
worthy of Christian honor and good, and may we never 
forsake the virtues of our aged parents and other ances- 
tors and bring shame and reproach upon an honored name. 

South English, Iowa. JOSEPH H. WENGER.

GEIL HISTORY 



No. 1. First Generation. 

1) J. Conrad Geil, the subject of this sketch and the 

progenitor of this vast Geil family, was born , and 

emigrated from Amsterdam, east from Portsmouth, to 
America on the ship "John and Elizabeth." The crew 
was composed of inhal)itants from Hanan, Wiirttemberg, 
and the Palatinate in Germany. Of the passengers there 
were eleven Roman Catholics and 120 Protestants, the 
total number of passengers being 330. They arrived at 
Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 7. 1754. Tlie al)ove is gathered 
from " Rupps History," page 346, containing 30,000 names 
of emigrants who registered at Philadelphia in colonial 
times, from 1600 to 1800. All other evidences concerning 
any dates and points or information concerning J. Con- 
rad Geil are missing, except that he had a son, Jacob Geil, 
from whom come the descendants mentioned in this 
entire Geil History. 

1) Jacob Geil, Ijorn in Germany in 1746. No. 2. 

Note. — Whether J. Conrad Geil had other children, be- 
sides the above Jacob, could not be ascertained, but be it 
known that search was made for every possible point, 
regardless of efforts and expense. 

No. 2. Second Generation. 1. 

1) Jacob Geil, the only son of J. Conrad Geil, of whom 
we have any knowledge, was born in Alsace, Ger- 
many, near the Rhine, in 1746, and at the age of 8 years, 
with his father, he emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1754. 
About the year 1767 he married a Miss Clymer* and set- 
tled in Chester Co., Pa. Here they lived during the Rev- 
olutionary War, after which they moved to Rockingham 



*See note on page 12.

Co., Va.. near Bowmans Mill, now (1912) owned by Mr. 
Clark, one and one-half miles south of Broadway, Rock- 
ingham Co., Va., in tlie noted Shenandoah V^alley. Here 
Mr. Geil bought 500 acres of land of David Brenneman, 
situated on Linville Creek, the deed bearing date of May 
2Z, 1783. Here he lived, dying in 1794. He was buried on 
his old home farm, where, in June, 1913, a new tombstone 
was erected over his grave, which is in a private old fam- 
ily cemetery, containing only a few graves.* 

It seems that Mr. Geil's first family of children came 
with their father to Virginia, where some of them married 
and lived, but after the father's death in Virginia they 
went to Pennsylvania, many of them settling around 
Doylestown, Bucks Co., Pa., which for a time (say from 
1775 to 18(S5) was flooded with Geils: but I am informed 
that now (1912) onh- one is found in Bucks County in 
the person of Rev. William Edgar Geil. of Doylestown. 
He is a noted evangelist, who has traveled in many parts 
of the world. (See No. 560^.) Jacob Geil was a Men- 
nonite, and it is said tiiat his four wives were members. 

For a number of generations the old Geil families were 
Mcnnonites. and multitudes of them still adhere to that 
church.

informed that the record of these Geil families was de-

they emigrated to Fairfield Co., Ohio, and settled in the 
woods near where Berne Station now is; ai^out four miles 
east of Lancaster, where they opened a fine farm, now 
owned by Frank Beery, son of Lewis, deceased. 

In 1832 this worthy family moved to near McCutchen- 
ville, Wyandot Co., Ohio, where they invested largely in 
government land, and accumulated a large fortune. They 
were a hearty, robust couple, as evidenced by their pos- 
terity, who were a matter-of-fact people. McCutchen-

5) John Geil, born April 9, 1778, in New Britain Town- 
ship, near Doylestown, Bucks Co., Pa., on a farm once 
owned by Isaac Godshall, a Mennonite minister, and later, 
in 1897, by Xathan Price. Mr. Geil died at Line Lexing- 
ton, Bucks Co., Pa., Jan. 16, 1866. Elizabeth Fretz, born 
in Bucks County, Jan. 27, 1781, died Nov. 6, 1849; married 
April 22, 1802. John Geil was ordained to the ministry in 
the Mennonite church at Line Lexington, between 1809 
and 1811, and served the church faithfully for fifty-five 

15 



years. He manifested an uncommon power of mind, which 
so ably fitted him for the position. In many ways he was 
a very remarkable man; tall in stature and well-propor- 
tioned; had a pleasant disposition; modest in his speech, 
and always looked at the bright side of things. He was 
not an aspirant for wealth, and yet the Lord blessed him 
with temporal abundance. 

Mr. Geil lived on a farm near the Fretz Mill in New 
Britain Township, Bucks County, in a commodious two- 
story stone farmhouse. There were stone fences on the 
farm. Mr. Geil's natural abilities were great. He pos- 
sessed no special educational a<lvantages. In fact in his 
day, these were few and far apart. .Mthough he attended 
school onlj- six weeks in his life, he so well acquired the 
German and English languages that he was often called 
upon to write wills, mortgages, and public documents, and 
settle up estates. 

Some of the ministers of the present (1912) write their 
sermons, or still worse, copy them from books, etc., of 
" high-toned " ministers. Not so with Mr. Geil. He al- 
ways was ready for a sermon without the presence of the 
Bible or any preparation. He was a noble Christian man, 
whom all would do well to imitate. 

A short while before his death he preached a powerful 
farewell sermon to his congregation. He died at the ri])e 
old age of 87 years, 9 months and 7 days.

Mary Driver, born June 3, 1804, died Oct. 22. 1851. Mar- 
ried Aug. 27, 1822. The subject of this sketch faithfully 
served on his father's farm at Doylestown, llucks C(;., Pa., 
until he arrived at the age of 21 years, after which in 1820 
he came to Rockingham Co., Va., and worked for his uncle, 
Christian Funk, near where Broadway, Va., is now located. 
He worked several years at blacksmithing and the manu- 
factory of the old fashioned sickles (reap ho<iks) which 
was the only mode of cutting wheat, so customary in 18(XJ 
and previous. After marriage in 1822 he followed black- 
smithing three miles south of New Market, Va., until 1827, 
when he moved on a farm four miles west of New Market 
in the vicinity of what at that time was called the " Marsh," 
where he spent the remainder of his life. He died Oct. 
19, 1889, aged 90 years, 8 months and 27 days. He was a 
large, stalwart man and the writer thinks that no better 
man ever lived than Grandfather John C^-il. He and wife 
united with the Mennonite church soon after marriage. 

He was ordained to the ministry in and to the 

office of bishop in 1859. The next sixty-one families arc 
his descendants. J. H. W.

was a very stout, hearty, robust man. but death called him 
at the age of 45. It seems that his ingenuity in a mechan-

in Missouri and at the point of prosperity he was called 
to the world beyond while he was so much needed with his 
young family: but through the noble Christian efforts of 
Mrs. Wenger she raised a tine prosperous family who are 
among our best citizens. Abraham Wenger was endowed

This ends the Fannie (Geil) Miller descendants. It 
seems that the Millers are very prolific in all countries. 
I once heard that, ages ago, names became exhausted and 
therefore all babies were called Millers, but here is a 
more plausible reason. In all nationalities and languages, 
a man who tends a mill is called a miller. Hence the 
many Millers. J. H. W.

1) Nicholas Beery (whose mother was Nancy Geil) was 

113 



horn in Rockingham Co.. Va.. in 1796, and came with his 
parents to Fairlield Co.. Ohio, in 1803. He never married. 
Later he came with his parents to \\ yandot Co., Ohio, in 
1834. His occupation was buying horses in Ohio and trav- 
eling them through the mountains to \irginia. where he 
sold them at great profit; often he would sell them on time 
among his old friends. In 1848 he left Wyandot Co.. 
Ohio, on foot to go to \"irginia intending to collect a 
large sum of money due him for horses previously sold. 
He was advised not to take such a journey through the 
mountains on foot. It was a distance of 500 miles and it 
was predicted that some one would murder him for his 
money. Despite his friends' protests he started, going by 
the way of Fairfield Co., Ohio, and was last seen by ac- 
quaintances at that place. He never returned to Ohio, and 
hence the conclusion that the above prediction was verified. 
His untimely death will perhaps always remain a mystery.

The following is what 1 chanced to get of Wm. E. 
Geil, under No. 560; He was born at Dojlestown, Pa., 
Oct. 1, 1865. Married Miss Emerson, of Titusville, Pa., 
June, 1912. Mr. Geil, like the majority of the Geil ancestors, 
is a tall, stalwart, muscular man, and has a bold, vigorous, 
incisive style. He is accomplished in oration and is full 
of wit, like his grandfather, John Geil (see No. 7). So, 
Mr. W. E. Geil, with his thorough education, is now 
known by American and foreign nations of the world to 
outstrip any orator yet produced. He has traveled as a 
missionary-evangelist, not only in America, but in all 

163 



nations of the earth — approximately 250,000 miles, or a 
distance equivalent to ten times around the world. He 
has lectured and preached to all nationalities, from the 
humble Americans to the Cannibals of New Guinea, and 
the Pigmies of the African forests. His audiences some- 
times numbered six or eight thousand. Livingstone and 
Stanley did much for science and civilization, but Dr. 
Geil's researches have taken wider range. He has written 
an extensive history of his travels. 400 pages, price $5.00.

VALEDICTION OR FAREWELL REMARKS. 

The author of this History was born at Edoni, Rocking- 
ham Co., Va., Nov. 15, 1835, and on account of the Civil 
War came to South English, Iowa, Sept. 13, 1861 — -52 years 
ago, where lie still resides. He and wife retired from ac- 
tive farm life and business in 1896, and traveled extensive- 
ly. At intervals he devoted much time in compiling family 
histories and genealogies in which he was greatly inter- 
ested, and seemed to be in his proper element when at 
that kind of work. His education was very limited; his 
school facilities in early days were few and far between; 
therefore home study at every spare moment was the only 
substitute. 

His historical work is not crowned w^ith fluency and 
polish compared with writers of modern education. The 
aim was to note points and facts that have occurred two 
hundred or more years ago, in Germany and Switzerland 
and Colonial America, and also as America is today. 

In 1903 he completed the Wenger history of 834 fam- 
ilies, 259 pages, price reduced to $1.10 per copy. 

In 1905 the Abraham Beery History of 1063 families, 
328 pages, price reduced to $1.10 per copy. 

(The author's mother was a Beery.) 

In 1911 he produced the Nicholas Beery History of 1471 
families and 496 pages, price reduced to $1.25, all postpaid. 

These two Beerys were brothers and were born in Swit- 
zerland in 1718 and 1707 respectively. 

It was through the urgent request of the various family 
relations that he consented to undertake the work of each 
genealogy. 

The Wengers, Beerj-s and Geils were miscellaneously 
mixed up in marriage. In this Geil history there were a 
few who could not be found; also a few who failed to re- 
port; hence a few links are missing; but it is not the fault 
of the autlior, who left no stones unturned under which 
he thought there was any history. 

255 



Now at the age of nearly 78 years he lays down his 
faithful historical pen and leaves the result of this un- 
polished work to the puljlic. 

He hopes that in this work he has entertained many of 
the Geil descendants who had not the remotest idea of 
their vast relationship. But can any of you readers im- 
agine the amount of work and perplexities connected with 
the search for this vast relationship? 

Yours, Etc., 
Joseph H. Wenger, 

July 18, 1913. South English, Iowa.
