This volume is very respectfully dedicated by the author, 
in loving remembrance of the hearty assistance rendered in 
the preparation of this work, to his father, David A. Heatwole, 
of Dale PJnterprise, Virginia, and to Jacob Hiitwohl, Jr., of 
Steeg, Germany, in appreciation of his work in publishing 
the history of the Hutwohls of Germany.

FOREWORD. 



Ancestrial pride is a trait common to human kind. 

There is, at present, unusual activity among Americans to 

run down family Imeage. The Library of Congress at 

Washington, D. C, makes a speciality of collecting books 

and pamphlets on Genealogies. The National Society of 

<;^ the Daughters of the American Revolution has done much 

Wj toward collecting and placing in convenient form much of 

rv American Genealogy. The purpose of this volume is to 

^WS^ put in permanent form the lineage of the Heatwole Family. 

^1 In 1882, David A. Heatwole collected data of the 

\t!^ American Heatwoles and published in booklet form a 

S *' History of the Heatwole Family," which has been incor- 

(^ porated into this volume. The interest thus far, manifest- 

iT ed in the Heatwole Genealogy, gives purpose and courage 

"V to the author of the present volume of Heatwole History, 

Vi which not only brings the family line up to the present time 

s.^ (1907), but follows it back into the parent European stock 

'^ somewhat beyond the date 1608. 

It is to be hoped that the Heatwoles throughout this 
country, together with their connection will be sufficiently 
interested in this work, to peruse carefully these pages, 
and that the future generations ]vill be inspired to pre- 
serve and improve the worthy racial qualities of their 
ancestors. 

" The sins that practice burns into the blood 
And not the one dark hour which brings remorse 
Will brand us, after, of whose fold we be."

HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



THE INTRODUCTION. 



The purpose of the present work is to set forth in a 
more permanent form, the material thus far gathered of 
the Heatwole lineage, and in addition gather and co-ordinate 
the material gotten from more recent scources, and put all 
into a single volume, that covers the entire scope of the 
Heatwole Genealogy as far back as the beginning of the 
Seventeenth Century. 

So far there have been two efforts to put in perma- 
nent form the Heatwole lineage; the first was made by 
David A. Heatwole, of Dale Enterprise, Va., in 1882 when 
he published a small pamphlet, "A History of the Heat- 
wole Family from the Landing of the Ancestors of the Race 
up to the Present Time," The second effort was made in 
1901 by Jacob Hixtwohl, Jr., of Steeg, Germany, when he 
published the Chronik der Familie Hiitwohl. The first 
covers only the American line up to 1878, the second covers 
the European branch from about the year 1608 to the present, 
and includes the pamphlet by David A. Heatwole translated 
into German. The present volume not only includes both the 
Chronik der Familie Hiitwohl and the History of the Ameri- 
can branch, but there is added a complete family register of 
the Heatwole lineage to the present time (1907). The Heat- 
wole genealogy is then complete from 1608 to the present 
time. 

It is through the kindness of Dr. John W. Wayland, of 
the University of Virginia, that we have a translation of 
the Chronik der Familie Hiitwohl. "The History of the 
Heatwole Family" has undergone no changes except to 
mark the generations through it, beginning with the ances- 
tor Mathias Hiitwohl, and to correct some errors which 
were overlooked in reading the proof when it was published. 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



It is interesting to note that the American branch grew 
from one ancestor into numerous families scattered throusfh- 
out many states of the Union, but more particularly in the 
Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, without the parent stock 
in Europe knowing anything of its existence. Credit is likely 
due to Mr. John T. Heatwole, of Denver, Colorado, for 
discovering the home of the ancestors on the Rhine. 
He chanced upon the name "Hiitwohl" through 
Congressman Joel P. Heatwole, of Minnesota, and institut- 
ed correspondence with Jacob Hiitwohl at Steeg bei Bach- 
arach am Rhine, and found that the Rhine Hiitwohls are 
distinctly related to Mathias Hiitwohl who immigrated to 
America in 1748, and who is the single ancestor of nearly 
all the Heatwoles in America today. It will be noted that 
more than one hundred and fifty years had elapsed from 
the time Mathias Hiitwohl landed in America to the time 
John T. Heatwole sent his first letter to Germany in 1898. 
To show the particular circumstances leading to the finding 
of the parent stock in Germany, a letter bearing date of 
Dec. 26, 1898, to D. A. Heatwole from Jacob Hiitwohl Jr., 
of Steeg Germany is here quoted. "The lately deceased 
American Consul-General at Berhn, Mr. Julius Gold- 
schmitt was my customer. In the month of February of 
this year (1898) he wrote to me that a friend of his Mr. 
Joel P. Heatwole, of Minnesota, had seen my label with 
him and therefore had requested him to search whether 
there might not be a connection between his and my family, 
but without any particulars I could not find anything. 
Happily not much later on the second of July I received a 
letter from Mr. John T. Heatwole, of Denver, Colorado, 
with the enclosure of your history of the Heatwole Family. 
In consequence of your genealogy I have discovered that 
your great-grand father Mathias Hiitwohl was bom in the 
year 1711 under the name of Johann Mathews Hiitwohl m 
the house in which I now live, as son of Johann Georg Hiit- 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



wole and the latter was born in 1685, as son of Hans Georg" 
Hiitwohl. Your great-grandfather Mathias Hiitwohl was a 
brother to Johann Peter Hiitwohl born April 27, 1713, and 
this must be the great-grandfather of my branch." 

It will be observed by reading the Chronik der Familie 
Hiitwohl that our ancestor Mathias Hiitwohl left the Father- 
land with wife and two children, but no record of them is to be 
had in connection with his landing at Philadelphia in 1748. 
It is most probable that his wife and two children did not 
survive the sea voyage incident to German emigrants of that 
time. In proof of this belief Jacob Hiitwohl quotes from 
"The Germans in the United States" by Rudolf Cronau, 
Chapters IV and V, where is related the cruel practices of 
ship captains of packing emigrants into their ships in num- 
bers far beyond the capacity of their vessels. From this 
condition hundreds of emigrants lost their lives during the 
voyage across the Atlantic, and Mathias Hiitwohl's wife 
and children must have shared the fate of these unfortunate 
ones. Another view of the matter ought to be given here. 
It is known to have been the practice of the United States 
emigrant officials not to include the names of the children 
of immigrants under sixteen years of age on their lists, thus 
it is possible for the children to have survived the voyage, 
and that their descendants are still living in Pennsylvania 
or elsewhere. While back of these views are mere evidence 
of fact, the first seems more plausible. 

Just how the name changed from "Hiitwohl" to "Heat- 
wole" is not known. The only evidence, known to the 
author, of the anglicizing of the name is found in "The 
German Element in the Shenandoah Valley" by John W. 
Wayland, where he says that the United States authorities 
sometimes required the immigrants to anglicize their names. 
The name has undergone various metamorphoses. The 
ancestor's names as written in the register at Philadelphia 
in 1748 is "Hiitwohl." In 1799 in deed of erant from 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



Gwinn to David (Harrisonburg, Va.,) the name is "Het^ 
wol," other forms are "Hetwold," "Heetwell," "Hutwell," 
"Hicdwohl," "Heatwol" and "Heatwole." The last form 
is the one now generally used. Those of the family now 
living in Jefferson County, West Virginia, use the form 
"Hicdwohl." It should be remembered in this connection 
that the first few generations of Heatwoles did not speak 
Enghsh, and giving their names to the civil authorities, the 
latter received only the phonetic utterance of the name, 
and in writing the name spelled it out in English form, and 
thus we might account for the form "Hetwol," in the deed 
to David Heatwole, and so with many or all of the other 
forms used. 

As to the origin of the name nothing is definitely 
known. There is, however, something of interest in the 
meaning of the name Hiitwohl. It is made up of two Ger- 
man root words, a verb and an adverb. The first (Hiit) 
being a form of the verb which means "to guard," "to 
watch," "to herd," the other (wohl) the adverb which means 
"well." The name then means "to guard well." Whether 
the name was applied to the person because he "guarded 
well" a military post, or to the shepherd who looked well 
to his flocks on the German hills, or yet to the pastor who 
kept well the ecclesiastic flock intrusted to his care we can- 
not say; but from the number of Hiitwohls in the seven- 
teenth century occupying the latter position (pastor) it 
would seem that the name came from the latter circumstance. 

The Heatwoles of America have very largely embrac- 
ed the Menonite faith in their reHgious life. From a rather 
careful investigation, it was ascertained that out of nearly 
one thousand, that have affiliated themselves with any 
church, six hundred and fifty are Menonites, with less 
than a hundred in each of the leading denominations. 

While as a rule the Heatwoles of America have pre- 
ferred to live a simple rural life, seeking a livelihood 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



largely through agricultural pursuits, yet a number of them 
have and are now occupying some of the highest positions 
in civil, political, educational and religious life of America. 
The names of the German Hiitwohls are found on the records 
of the Kingdom of Prussia among those called to high ser- 
vice in that government. They have, both in America and 
in Germany, developed a character noted for its sturdy, prac- 
tical and conservative qualities. It is interesting to note in 
this connection that the general features of the parent stock 
have not been lost in the American branch, for there is even 
today a striking resemblance between members of the two 
branches. Doctor T. O. Heatwole, of Baltimore, Mary- 
land, who in 1899 visited the Hiitwohls on the Rhine says 
of them in a private letter: "Upon my arrival in the 
European port letters of greeting and welcome to the 
Fatherland were put into my hands, which left no possibil- 
ity of a doubt as to the cordiality of greeting which awaited 
me at the ancestral home at Steeg. * * «^ * '-£)jq 
members of the Hiitwohl family in Germany are a thrifty 
people, cultured, refined, honorable and highly esteemed 
and respected in the business and the social world. The con- 
servatism and practical qualities of the Heatwoles of our 
own land can best be appreciated by contact with the sturdy 
going Germans who through centuries past have held their 
own against the many obstacles presented in the nature of 
-political upheavals within the special confines of their chosen 
section. They are loyal, law-abiding citizens and in every 
way equipped to reflect credit upon the present day 
civilization." 

Through the courtesy of Mr. Luther Kelker, custodian 
of the Division of Public Records of the State Library at 
Harrisburg, Pa., the author is able to give the readers of 
this volume the autograph of Mathias Hiitwohl, as entered 
on the original pledge that was required by the Province of 
Pennsylvania at that time. It might be of interest to say 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



here that while a number of the ninety-six immigrants of 
his ship made their marks, our ancestor wrote his own name 
as here given : 



c* . 





The total number of names to be found in this volume 
is about two thousand five hundred. Out of that number a 
few over six hundred and fifty go by the name Heatwole 
or Hiitwohl, 

It is impossible to acknowledge here in a special way 
the assistance that so many have rendered in the preparation 
of this work; the author, however, wishes to express his 
thanks to all who so heartily aided him. Special thanks are 
due Bishop L. J. Heatwole, Rev. Christian Good and 
Millard O. Heatwole for valuable assistance rendered in 
making the Index, and to David A. " Heatwole for informa- 
tion and assistance, without which this volume would be 
much less valuable. The author is indebted also to Gen- 
eral John E. Roller, of Harrisonburg, Va., for valuable 
suggestions. The scheme of numbers used throughout the 
family register has been adopted from the Berry and 
Wenger histories prepared by Joseph Wenger, of South 
English, Iowa. 

With grateful acknowledgement to all for the encour- 
agement received during the preparation of this work, the 
author submits it, conscious of its imperfections, with the 
hope that it may find appreciative hearts and homes among 
the people in whose veins flow the He:itwole blood.

HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 11 



As ancestor of the Heatwole Family, we introduce the 
worthy clergymaTi, Georg Hiitwohl, of Morschbach, near 
Rheinbollen upon the Hundsriick, 15 kilometers [about 
9 1-3 miles] from. Steeg. 

His descent and the date of his birth have not been 
ascertained; but, so far as is known, he died in the year 
1608. He must also have been one of the first, or the first, 
of the evangelical ministers at the old church, already dedi- 
cated in the year 1006, of that part of Morschbach situated 
on the former Roman road fron Bingen to Trier. 

The Reformation in the part of Morschbach belonging 
to Pfalz — Simmern was inaugurated on July 16, 1557, 
through the duke residing in Simmern, Frederick H, who 
appointed as pastors to the foremost churches of his land 
men from abroad — men of piety and skill in the Scriptures. 

It is possible that Georg Hutwohl was a native of this 
place; it is possible, also, that he sprang from another sec- 
tion of Hundsriick, where, as appears from the following, 
many of the persons of the name Hutwohl were found at 
that tim.e. 

The royal archivist at Coblenz writes on August 26, 

1899: 

"The investigations undertaken inconsequence of yotir 
inquiries have not, I regret to say, led to the discovery of any 
information concerning the Rev. Peter Hiitwohl, of Morsch- 
bach. The Acts at hand concerning this village are very 
incomplete, and do not enable one at all to determine when 
Morschbach ceased to be a self-sustaining parish. Only 
from the property-register of the local church for the year 
1608, one may conclude that the said Rev. Georg Hiitwohl 
had just recently died. In the said register appears a Mel- 
chior Hiittwol as clergyman at Laubach and as agent of the 
Morschbach minister. (He could as well have been the 
uncle as the brother of Rev. Peter Hutwohl.) 

"Further, in a tax-register of the bailiwick of Simmern 



12 HISTORY OP^ THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



for the year 1656, is found entered among the tax-payers 
belonging to the town of Simmern, but living outside, the 
widow of Hans Wilhelm Hiitwohl. I would, therefore, 
humbly suggest to you that you next undertake further in- 
vestigations in the church-books and the city record-office 
of Simmern." 

"Dr. P^orst (in deputy).'* 

All further investigations in Simmern, Horn, -and the 
provincial church records in Vallendar were fruitless; but 
in Karlsruhe the Coblenz record was confirmed.

Dead." 

The first bearer of the name Hiitwohl in Steeg was 
Georg Hiitwohl, who was a grandson of Rev. Georg 
Hiitwohl, and a son of Rev. Peter Hiitwohl, of Morschbach, 
and who followed the trade of a cooper in Steeg. Georg 
Hiitwohl was born in the year 1615. He married in the 
year 1647, Anna Sophia nee Lieschied. He died at the age 
of 73 years, on May 28, 1688, after his wife had preceded 
him 3 months earlier, on February 29, 1688 (leap-year), at 
the age of 64 years. 

He lived through the period of the Thirty Years War; 
and was doubtless one of those who suffered keenly in the 
war-storms of the time, Steeg suffered so terribly during 
this period that it has not even today regained its former 
size. Before the Thirty Years War brought its ruin, the 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 13 



number of births each year was about 50. Today the num- 
ber varies between 25 and 35. The whole population of 
Steeg took refuge once during the period in the forest of 
St. Goar, in order to escape the outrages of the inhuman 
soldiery. A gentleman, who had abundant opportunities 
for becoming acquainted with the misery of the war, tells 
us as an eye-witness how he, as a child in his father's house, 
beheld the wild excesses of a plundering crowd of soldiers: 
The first thing that the troopers did, beginning in my 
father's dark painted rooms, was to stable their horses there- 
in. After that, each one had his own particular task to 
perform, of which each blazing ruin and desolate waste 
gave evidence. For if indeed some began to butcher, to 
boil, and to roast, so that it appeared as if there was going 
to be held a carousing banquet, there was some, on the 
other hand, who would be storming through the house, 
from celler to garret, and there was no place secure from 
them. Others put together of cloth, clothing, and other 
household articles great bundles, as if they were going 
somewhere to set up a retail store, but what they did not 
choose to take with them was broken and ruined. Some 
pierced into the hay and straw with their swords, as if they 
had not had enough hogs to stick. Some poured the feath- 
ers out of the beds and filled them with bacon; others put 
dried meat and other things in them, as if it were then pos- 
sible to sleep on them better; others knocked in stoves and 
windows, just as if they had an eternal summer to proclaim. 
Copper vessels and tinware they beat together, and packed 
up the bent and broken prieces. Bedsteads, tables, chairs, 
and benches they burnt up, although many cords of dry 
wood lay in the yard; earthenware and dishes all had to be 
smashed, either because they preferred to eat roast, or be- 
cause they judged themselves able to hold only a single 
meal. The servant-boy they laid bound upon the ground, 
put a gag into his mouth, and pored into him a milk-pailful of 



14 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



filthy barnyard water, a thing they called a Swedish dram, 
which, instead of tickling- his palate, contorted his visage 
with marvelous grimaces. By this means they induced him 
to lead a party to another place; there they captured both 
persons and cattle; and brought them to our yard. Among 
the number were my father, my mother, and our maid. 
Once there, they began to take the flints out of their pistols, 
and in the place of these to screw up the thumbs of the 
peasants, and to torture the poor fellows sorely. One of 
the captured peasants they thrust into the bake-oven, and 
were behind him with fire. They put a rope around the head 
of another, and twisted it together with a stick so hard that 
the blood gushed out at his mouth, nose and ears. In 
short, each one had his device for tormenting the peasants, 
and each peasant, on his part, underwent his particular 
torture. 

Added to such devastating excesses of the soldiers, 
there came also during the war a fearful plague, which con- 
tributed its part toward making Germany a complete waste. 
In Steeg there were buried on a certain afternoon during 
this period a hundred corpses — so many that the astonished 
clergyman did not have a chance to record their names in 
the church-book. At the time a writer makes complaint 
concerning the woes of his day: 

How pitiable are the great cities! Where formerly 
were a thousand streets, are now not more than a hundred. 
How wretched are the small cities, the unwalled towns, as 
they lie burnt, ruined, in confusion, so that neither roof , 
rafter, doors, nor window is to be seen. How they have 
transformed the churches! They have burned them, carried 
off the bells; they have turned them into horse-stables and 
sutlers' quarters; they have defiled the altars. O God! 
How miserable is it with the villages! One may walk for 
ten miles and never see a person — not an ox, not a sparrow; 
where at some places not an old man, not a deserted child, 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 15 



not even a few old women are to be found. In all the villages 
the houses lie full of corpses and dead animals— husband, 
wife, children, and servants, horses, hogs, cows, and oxen, 
side by side and one upon the other, slaughtered by the 
plague and hunger, full of maggots and worms, and partly 
eaten by wolves, dogs, crows, ravens, and other birds; for 
there was no one to bury them; no one who has mourned for 
them or wept over them. So great has the want become 
that the people have fallen upon one another, have killed 
and eaten one another; so great that the poor have cut out 
pieces of flesh from the carrion-heaps, broken up the bones, 
and with the marrow thereof cooked the flesh that already 
was filled with worms. 

The marriage of Georg Hiitwohl with Anna Sophia nee 
Lieschied was blessed with six children, five sons and a 
daughter, whose names, in chronological order, were 
(1) John Simon Hiitwohl, (2) John Sebastian Hiitwohl, (3) 
Sophia Margaret Hiitwohl, (4) John Georg Hiitwohl, (5) 
John Jacob Hiitwohl, and (6) John Peter Hiitwohl. The 
father, Georg Hiitwohl, appears to have had a great lik- 
ing for the name John. 

The eldest, John Simon Hiitwohl, was born on the 4th 
of February, 1649, and died in tender childhood on the 6th 
of August, 1653, at the age of 4}4 years. 

The second son of Georg Hiitwohl and Anna Sophia 
nee Lieschied, John Sebastian Hiitwohl, was born February 
9, 1651. He married Anna Christina, whose family name 
as well as her wedding-day, was not ascertainable. John 
Sebastian Hiitwohl died at the age of 37 years, on February 
27, 1688. His wife outlived him almost a quarter of a 
century; she died on May 9, 1712. 

John Sebastian Hiitwohl and Anna Christina had two 
sons: (1) John George Hiitwohl and (2) John Mathias 
Hiitwohl. 

John George Hiitwohl was born on January 8, 



16 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



1682. He married the clergyman's daughter, Anna 
Sophia nee Andrea, on August -8, 1687. [1687 is 
evidently incorrect. The year was probably about 171Q.] 
God bestowed upon them five childred, four boys and one 
girl. There names are: (1) John Mathias Hiitwohl, (2) 
John Peter Hiitwohl, (3) Maria Regina Hiitwohl, (4) John 
Gerhardt Hiitwohl, and (5) John Ulrich Hiitwohl. John 
Georg Hiitwohl died on February 14, 1738, at the age of 56 
years. His wife died on March 27, 1759, in her 72d year. 
The second son of John Sebastian Hiitwohl and Anna 
Christina is John Mathias Hiitwohl. He was born on Nov- 
ember 8, 1686. He married Sophia Margaret nee Lyschied 
— the manner of writing the name is noticeable — and died 
in his 29th year, on August 14, 1714, after he had been 
made fortunate through a little son, John Georg Hiitwohl, 
His little son, John Georg Hiitwohl, born on January 15, 
1713. John Mathias Hiitwohl was elected in the year 1711 
to the field-guard. The oath by which he had to order his 
conduct may be interesting: 

1. "You shall promise and then swear before God and 
his Gospel, to be friendly and obedient to our most gracious 
prince and lord, Karl Theodore, Count-Palatine of the 
Rhine, Chief Treasurer and Elector of the Holy R-oman 
Empire in Bavaria, Duke of Jiilich, Kleve, and Berg, 
Prince of Mors, Marquis of Bergen op Zoom, Count of Vel- 
dentz, Sponheim, the Mark, and Ravensburg, Lord of 
Ravenstein; to be loyal to the honorable council and the 
whole commonwealth; to promote their best interests; to de- 
fend them from injury; and not to relinquish such efforts 
with regard to a single motive, how means may be contriv- 
ed for, as for yourself, the honor that belong to the people. 

2. You shall be a guard, and keep your eyes intent 
upon every man, and that none the less because of friend- 
ship or gift, nor yet because of any sort of motive that the 
hearts of men may contrive. 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 17 



3. You have permission to punish those who glean 
apples, pears, peaches, nuts, grapes, chestnuts, or anything 
else, whatever it may be, before St. Martin's Day, on the 
estates of other persons; also those who pull off such fruit 
for other people, knock it off, or in any other way obtain it 
unlawfully. 

4. Likewise, when you observe a man who appears as 
if he were about to do some mischief, you shall follow him 
day and night, and give close attention to him. 

5. Likewise, when anything by reason of distraint or 
as money from persons fined shall be given to you, you 
shall not keep it yourself, but shall deliver it to the burgo- 
master; what he then shall give 57-ou, you shall have to keep. 

6. You shall keep in order, day and night, people and 
stock, and whatever is abroad. 

7. You shall punish all those who pasture their cattle 
upon second-growth, or turn them into orchards and fields, 
before St. Martin's Day; but they may turn out and pasture 
at that time upon their own property without harming 
other persons. 

8. You shall punish all who, in the vineyards or else- 
where, cut fire- wood, or remove it in a harmful manner, 
either in winter or in summer-time. 

9. You shall punish all those wagoners who carry 
drags on their wagons behind, thereby tearing up the road- 
way and the laid foundations, and transgressing and violat- 
ing the law. 

10. You shall also bring to account and judge all those 
who enter upon the estates of another and turn up earth, as 
if they had permission to make use of the property for 
themselves, and when the one so doing cannot with truth 
prove such a condition, you are to arrest him and bring 
him up for trial, just as if he had been apprehended upon 

the deed. 

11. You shall also punish the vagabond servants,

who, without permission of their masters, shall lead in with 
themselves upon their masters' estates other servants, male 
or female, to give them the same wood, leaves, grass, or 
fruit, etc., and to have them come for that purpose: they 
shall be all punished together. 

Now, when this, as appears above, is read over to the 
guard, thus shall the burgomaster question the guard: 
Have you well understood what has been read over to you? 
You shall sincerely answer Yes; and faithfully shall perform 
it. Then shall each one raise his two forefingers, with his 
thumb, and shall say, one after the other: Whereas every- 
thing has now been read over, and we also have 
well understood it, the same will we and each one 
separately faithfully and diligently perform, which we do 
swear; so help us God and his holy, Gospel. In the begin- 
ning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word 
was God. 

The first son of John George Hiitwohl and Anna Sophia 
nee Andrea is John Mathias Hiitwohl, (The American An- 
cestor). He was born in the year 1711. He marrried, on 
February 11, 1744, Anna Christina nee Heiderich. Their 
two daughters, Christine Elizabeth Hiitwohl and Anna 
Susanna, were born on October 16, 1745, and on October 
17, 1747, respectively. Concerning the members of the 
Hiitwohl family, ample data in regard to this period are to 
be had. It is therefore noteworthy that with John Mathias 
Hiitwohl, at the year 1747, particular facts of information 
cease. However, in the year 1748, on September 15, a 
Mathias Hiitwohl landed at Philadelphia, on board the ship 
"Two Brothers"; so it is possible to infer with confidence 
that this man had emigrated from Steeg. 

In order to prove that the disappearance of our ances- 
tress Anna Christina nee Heiderich and of her two daugh- 
ters, Christine Elizabeth Hiitwohl a^id Anna Susanna 
Hiitwohl, was due to the emigration movement of that time, 
an article of the Cologne Gazette, volume 1897, Nos. 527 and 
596, shall here follow.

THE GERMANS IN THE UNITED STATES. 

BY RUDOLF CRONAU. 

. ,^ ,,■.,'"' IV. 

The Great Emigration of the Palatines in the Eighteenth 

Century. 

During- the wars which Germany at the end of the 17th 
and at the beginning of the 18th century was carrying on with 
the "Most Christian King," Louis XIV, of France, there 
was no land so terribly visited as the Palatine, which at 
tliat time was inhabited by about a half-million people. 
Already during the Thirty Years War the Palatines had 
lived through cruel times, but these were nothing in com- 
parison to the distress which was inflicted upon the Palatines 
through the predatory excursions of the French. , When, in 
the year 1688, the French hosts, without a declaration of 
war, threw themselves into the land, they came with the 
design systematically to turn it into a desert, in conformity 
with the will of their king, who wished to know that the 
frontier between France and Germany extended through a 
4esert. Innumerable smiling villages went up in flames; 
Heidelberg, Mannheim, Speyer, Worms, Alzey, Oppen- 
heim, Kreuznach, Gernsheim, Ladenburg, and many other 
places sank in ashes; the imperial sepulchres in the cathe- 
dral at Speyer were burst open and plundered. With 
blood and fire the French incendiaries, Melac, Turenne, and 
de Gorges, wrote in the book of history their names — names 
on which the curse of, thousands fastened itself. 

To the horrors which the Palatines at that time experi- 
enced, were added besides oppression and religious perse- 
cution through their own sovereigns. Already four times 
during the last hundred years, with the change of princes 
four times introduced, had the Palatines been obliged to 
qhange their faith; for cnjus regio, ejus reUgio, those princes

declared, and forced their subjects first to go over from 
Catholicism to Lutheranism, then to become Reformed, then 
again Lutheran, and finally once more Reformed. In the 
year 1690, ever^'body in the territory came under the 
government of the Jesuit Elector, John William, who, him- 
self a fanatical Catholic, now once more would make the 
Palatines Catholics again b}^ force. Epicureanism, prodi- 
gality, and extortion from townsmen and peasants were 
characteristic of this simpleton at the court of Diisseldorf , 
who, in his manner of life and habits of luxury, not only 
sought to ape after Germany's greatest enemy, Louis XIV, 
but even erected during his lifetime his own monument, 
which even yet is to be seen upon the market-place in 
Diisseldorf. 

The inscription says, "The grateful city has erected this 
monument to the Prince"; but how little reason his subjects 
had for gratitude appears from this fact, that about the 
year 1708 thousands of the poor Palatines, who no longer 
able to keep the everlasting empty coffers of the spendthrift 
full, came to the resolution to go over to America. In this 
resolution they were not only strengthened by the constant- 
ly threatening French peril, but they were also encouraged 
thereto by their countrymen already dwelling on the other 
side of the ocean. Especially, a little work, considerably 
distributed among the Palatines, the so-called "Golden 
Book," whose ornamented title-page was stamped in gold 
with the picture of the Queen of England, made, through 
its enticing descriptions of the English North-American 
colonies, the deepest impression upon the poor people. The 
first company of Palatines who went abroad stood under the 
leadership of the Rev. Joshua von Kocherthal, numbered 
52 head, and came in March, 1708, across Holland to Lon- 
don, where the English government, which wished to peo- 
ple its trans- Atlantic possessions, declared itself ready to 
conduct them over to the shores of the Hudson. There the 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 21 



Palatines founded a settlement, which, in memory of their 
home town, they called Neuburg— the present-day New- 
burgh . 

The news of the friendly reception and assistance 
which had been extended to the Palatines on the part of 
English government came back to the Palatinate, and call- 
ed forth here great excitement. This was turned to good 
accoimt by the English commissioners sent to the Palatin- 
ate to stimulate the spirit of emigration still more; more- 
over, the fearfully cold winter of 1708 and 1709, during 
which all field crops and vines were destroyed and the wine 
was frozen in the casks, contributed not a little to the 
same end. 

It was in the spring of 1709, that the Rhine became 
the theater of one of the most extraordinary events. All 
floating craft, in the shape of rafts, skiffs, boats, and other 
vessels, went gliding down the beautiful stream, all laden 
with unfortunate people, who in bundles, boxes, and chests, 
were carrying with them the few things they still pos- 
sessed. From the upper Rhine these emigrants took ship to 
Holland, passed over from there to England, and tarried at 
London to obtain from the English government the further 
advancement to North America. In England they became 
alarmed at the multitude of the German emigrants, whom 
they were soon no longer able to lodge, and for whom they 
had to make temporary quarters in the Schwarzen Heide 
(Black Heath) near London. 

Here were soon assembled no less than from 13,000 to 
14,000 Palatines (Loher says as many even as 32,468; but 
the statements on the point are very contradictory), given 
over to want, for the government did not have ships enough 
to suffice for the transporting of so great a multitude. The 
brilliant beneficence, put forth at first, gradually waned, so 
that by the beginning of winter the misery became con- 
stantly greater, and in consequence about a thousand 



^ HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



persons died. Under the circumstances some remedy for 
the state affairs had to be devised, so the government 
shipped several thousand of the unfortunates back to 
Holland and Germany; about 3800 they brought to Ireland, 
for the purpose of aiding the weaving industry there; but 
600 they sent to Carolina, and, at the beginning of the year 
1710, more than 3000 to New York, with the newly 
appointed Governor Hunter. Only 2227 Palatines reached 
their desired destination, the banks of the Hudson, for 470 
persons died of ship-fever during the voyage, and 250 upon 
the little Governor's Island, located near New York, where 
the town authorities of New York detained again for several 
weeks, in bad lodgings, the immigrants who were suspect- 
ed of bringing in contagious diseases. 

When finally this frightful quarantine had been lifted, 
the Palatines hoped that now their worst difficulties had 
been surmounted. But the cup of suffering appointed to 
them was still for a long time not at its end, for after 
Gfovernor Hunter had finally collected them into two camps. 
East Camp and West Camp, situated on both sides of the 
Hudson, south of the Catskill Mountains, there began for 
the most wretched creatures another additional year during 
the time of their oppression. They were looked upon as a 
piece of arable land is regarded by crown- vassals, who 
should be put under bond, who should discharge the assist- 
ance extended them, as well as the expense of their voyage 
over and their maintenance, through their labor, to the last 
(jopper and farthing. They were set to making tar and 
raising hemp, whereby the English government no longer 
had need to import these indispensable commodities from 
foreign countries for the navy. The provisioning of the 
Palatines, entrusted to the worthless speculator, Robert 
Livingstone, became so bad as time went on, and the op- 
pression became so unbearable, that finally the people 
re;^used to work longer. 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 23 



They determined to flee to the valley of the Schoharie, 
a stream flowing into the Mohawk River, where lived sev- 
eral Indian chiefs, who, during a visit to London, had seen 
the Palatines in their distress, and had offered them enough 
land for their needs. Now they remembered this offer, 
and sought permission through an ambassador to settli 
upon the territory of the Indians. When this was willingly 
granted, and the chiefs had again expressly proffered the 
donation, the Palatines, in March of the year 1713, despite 
all the opposition of the Enghsh governor, who sought to 
profit by the poor people still further, set out upon their 
journey to Schoharie Valley. The journey occupied four- 
teen days, and was rendered more difficult for this reason, 
that they had no sort of draught-animals, and no wagons, to 
transport the baggage, the women, the children, and the 
sick. All their property had to be carried on the back; 
moreover, far and wide lay a deep snow, which made rapid 
progress impossible. When finally the poor wanderers 
came into the beautiful valley, they had nothing to live on. 
They would undoubtedly have starved, had not the Indians 
taken pitj on them, and provided them with game until 
spring. 

Hardly ever were settlements begun under more difficult 
circumstances than that of the Palatines in the Schoharie 
Valley. There they had no plows, so they tore up the earth 
with sickles and sowed in these rough furrows the bushel 
of corn which they bought with their last money in the little 
town of Schenectady, 30 kilometers [between 18 and 19 
miles] distant. The houses they constructed out of rough 
tree-trunks, and made clothing and headgear out of the 
skins of animals killed by the Indians. Thus the poor 
creatures dragged along till autumn, when their first harvest 
yielded 83 bushels. This produced grain they pounded upon 
stones for want of a mill. Already in the next summer the 
settlements began to win a more comfortable existance. 



24 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



Seven small villages were established, named after the 
Palatines' guides: Weisertown, Hartmannstown, Brunnen- 
town, Schmidstown, Fuchstown, Gerlachstown, and Kneis- 
kerntown, of which the last named, as also Hartmanns- 
town, stands yet today. The builders of these villages 
began even to look forward full of hope for the future, 
when as a thunderclap the news came that Governor Hun- 
ter, on the 3d of November, 1714, had transferred the land 
settled by the Palatines to seven English speculators, with 
whom the Palatines must come to terms by one method or 
another. 

That the latter held the land by gift from the Indians, 
and that they had full title to the same by the colonial-right, 
which concedes possession to the first settler — about this 
Hunter did not trouble himself at all. He continued so to 
annoy the Palatines through all sorts of unfair proceedings, 
that finally the majority resolved to emigrate once more. 
Only a few came to an agreement to make a lease of the 
speculators or to pay them purchase money. The remain- 
ing settlers moved, part under John Weiser to Pennsyl- 
vania, where on the Susquehannah they built up a flourish- 
ing new commonwealth, the place Heidelberg; part moved 
into the valley of the Mohawk where, in conjunction with 
other fellow-countrymen, they established the district of 
Little Falls in the year 1721, and later Palatine Bridge, 
Palatine Church, Canajoharie, Frankfurt, the German Flats, 
Oppenheim, Manheim, and other towns. Through the very 
profitable barter with the Indians, many of the Palatines in 
these districts attained to great wealth. 

The emigration to North America assumed, as may be 
seen from manuscript communications, especially about the 
middle of the 18th century, a great volume. In the year 
1749 twenty-five ships with 7049 Germans landed at Phila- 
delphia alone. During the time from 1750 to 1752 over 
18,000 are said to have arrived. Especially strong was the 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 25 



exodus in the year 1759, when nominally 22,000 Palatines, 
Eadensians, and Wurtembergers set foot on the soil of the 
New World at Philadelphia. [This statement as to the 
large nnmber of immigrants in 1759 is evidently erroneous, 
ior German immigration was practically suspended from 
1756 to 1761, during the French and Indian War.] Among 
the Englishmen dwelling in the English colonies, the great 
number of Germans coming in every year infused for a 
time a downright uneasiness. Already in the year 1727 
they desired the government to put a check upon German 
immigration, lest otherwise the Germans might gain the 
preponderance and make the colonies of the English crown 
alienate. "The Germans are coming,^' so it reads in the 
letter of an Englishman to the government, descended from 
the year 1755, "in such strength, that they can soon be in a 
position to give us laws and language into the bargain." 

THE REDEMPTIONERS AND THE ORIGIN OF GERMAN 
ASSOCIATIONS. 

It cannot fail to appear that the rapidly increasing emi- 
gration to America would very soon of necessity produce 
unfortunate conditions of every kind. The means of 
transportation at that time were thoroughly inadequate to 
the demands made upon them. The number of ships 
fitted for transporting large numbers of people was very 
small, and their interior equipment left well-nigh every- 
thing to be desired. Emigration officers who concerned them- 
selves about the safe progress and appropriate maintenance ■ 
of the emigrants were unknown. The whole concern about 
the latter things lay exclusively in the hands of the Dutch 
and English ship-owners, who owed responsibility to no one. 

But who were these ship-owners? Many of them had 
acquired their wealth in the traffic with negro slaves, 
which through robbery or barter they had obtamed on the 
shores of Africa and had brought to the European colonies 



26 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 

established in America. When the opportunity offered 
itself these ship-owners and their captains did not at all 
hesitate to turn their attention to piracy. As to the moral 
principles of these g'entlemen, the case therefore stands 
decidedly bad, so that it is not particularly remarkable 
when we see these traders in black human flesh gradually 
extend their operations to a traffic in white human flesh also. 

To that end the constantly increasing" mania for emi- 
gration offered the most excellent opportunity. Intelligent 
utilization of this opportunity made it needless to sail to 
Guinea and risk their lives by the forcible seizure of slaves; 
for the white slaves rushed voluntarily into the net of these 
dealers in men. As a bait there served a method, which had 
not merely the advantage of simplicity of nature, but also 
bore deceptively the mark of the benevolent purpose, of 
noble-minded assistance, on its face. Under the pretext of 
being helpful to those persons desirous of emigrating, 
whose means was not sufficient, the ship-owners offered to 
furnish them with passage over at once, and to take instead 
of the cash payment a bond, by which arrangement they 
would be able in America to discharge their indebtedness 
by labor performed. 

From such relations concluded with the emigrants there 
accrued to the ship-owners so handsome a profit, tliat they 
staked everything upon it, to bring the emigration move- 
ment still more to a flood. To this end they gave out not 
only the most exaggerated descriptions of the advantages 
of America, but they also sent recruiting officers into those 
lands which produced emigrants the more readily. For 
this purpose they selected persons who already had been in 
America and were of influence, to give information to those 
who were anxious to seek their fortune there. They did 
this naturally, because they set forth the prevailing condi- 
tions in the colonies of the New World in the rosiest light. 
Each servant boy was himself to be a master, each maid a 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 27 



gracious mistress, the peasant a nobleman, the townsman 
a count. Money could be earned in heaps; the laws as also 
the government, were made only in conformity with good 
opinion. In this manner the handsomely dressed gentle- 
men, with gold chains, watches, and rings displayed, and 
traveling in stately coaches from village, from town to 
town, with trains of attendants, succeeded in stimulating 
yet more the existing disposition among the poor people to 
replace their prevailingly unfortunate circumstances with 
better, indeed with splendid, ones. The homely people be- 
lieved the fine gentlemen, who so well understood how to 
talk, simply in everything they said; they believed that 
every man in America could be his own master, have land 
in abundance, and that in a short time, with only ordinary 
diligence, it would necessarily bring him to a state of exis- 
tence such as in Germany it would be permitted only to a 
nobleman to enjoy. If they were not able to pay their pas- 
sage immediately, that, so declared the dragnet-men, 
should be no hindrance. The ship-master would defray it 
all — yes, he was ready, moreover, to give in advance the 
cost of their maintenance, as well as anything else becoming 
necassary. Through such skillful misrepresentations, thous- 
ands upon thousands of the poor, deluded people let them- 
selves be inveigled into signing the contracts laid before 
them by the emigration agents, only to find out later that 
they had fallen victims to unprincipled scoundrels, and that 
they must purchase the thing received with an immensely 
dear value in return — with the best years of their life. 

The first rude awakenings were awaiting them already 
in the shipping-ports, where their sojourn was protracted 
through all sorts of pretexts, till those emigrants who had 
money had spent the bulk of it at the inns, whose owners 
were in collusion with the ship-owners. Then, for the un- 
fortunate ones, there was no other way except the 
eno-agement given to the ship-owners, to discharge by 



TS HTSTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILT 



means of labor all expense that might accrue through their 
maintenance during their passage over. 

When the contrax:± was sealed, they finally went aboard , 
where, with people jammed in between decks ^ the condition 
of things was so' horrible , that the present-day steerage pas- 
sengers to America can form no' idea of it. From all of the 
desci-iptions of that time that have come down tO' us, sounds' 
out the indictm:ent that the emigrants '' were so densely 
crowded, together that one sick person had to inhale the 
breath of another, and because of the stench, filth, and lack 
of food, there sprang up among them scurvy, yellow fever, 
dysentery, and other infectious diseases." 

In what horrible manner the Dittch captains burdened 
their ships with this human freight, w^ill appear from an 
example — the ship '^' April, ^' under command of Captain de 
Groot, which sailed to America with emigrants in the year 
1818. Although it had room for only 400 persons, it had 
taken on board 1200, of whom 115 died already in the har- 
bor of Amsterdam, while 300 had to be taken back into the 
hospital. The sea-voyage was always long — extraordinarily 
long, according to our notions of to-day, and lasted at least 
as many weeks as days are required at present. Once in a 
while it came to pass that ships required several months for 
the voyage ; so it was in the year 1752, when one ship was 
upon the sea 17 weeks, another 24 weeks. 

The food was as bad as possible. Oftentimes the cap- 
tains, under the pretext that they must guard against the 
danger of a famine, allowed, from the day of the start, only 
half-rations tO' be issued, and these, moreover, were of the 
worst sort. They gave for the most part only bread with 
salt meat. The schoolmaster, Gottlieb Mittelberger, who 
in the year 1750 went to Pennsylvania, and who wrote con- 
cerning his journey a book of travel published in the year 
1756 at Frankfurt-on-the-Main, said therein: "One can 
hardly eat such food at all. The water, as they deal it out, 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 29 



is oftentimes quite black, thick, and full of worms, so that 
one, even with the greatest thirst, can hardly drink it with- 
out disgust. The biscuits, or ship's bread, one is obliged 
to eat, although on a whole piece hardly a place the size of 
a dollar was good, that had not been filled with little red 
worms and spider-webs." In consequence of the over- 
crowding of the ships and the bad food, the death-rate 
among the emigrants was always very high. Children 
under seven years hardly ever stood the journey. 

In the year 1775 there came a ship into Philadelphia, 
of whose 400 passengers not more than 50 were believed to 
be alive, Henry Keppeles, afterwards the first president 
of the German Society of Pennsylvania, relates in his day- 
book that of 312 wayfarers 250 perished. The mortality of 
those who had arrived in a number of ships coming to Phil- 
adelphia in the year 1758, was estimated at about 2,000 
persons [Some other year is likely referred to here, since 
it is not at all probably that as many as 2,000 immigrants 
in all landed in 1758.] 

And to what acts of brutality were the travelers ex- 
posed occasionally from the part of the crew and the cap- 
tain! A Dutch captain touched at England and sold 40 
stout fellows as recruits to an English recruiting-officer; 
another brought his passangers, instead of to Philadelphia, 
to the slave State of Deleware, and sold in New Castle his 
load as slaves. If emigrants died during the voyage, the 
captain and the sailors claimed as their own the prop- 
erty they left. All medical and other service claimed 
by the travelers were charged up to them at an exorbitant 
price, so that by the end of the voyage the indebtedness 
of the wayfarers would reach the highest possible amcumt. 
For the passage over, from six to ten Louisdor [horn 
$30 to $50] were charged at first; later, from 14 to 17 
[from $70 to $85]. 

At any rate, in conformity with the amount of the debt 



30 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



and in conformity with the physical condition of the immi- 
grant, was adjusted the period of his service to whomsoever 
he had to discharge his indebtedness. That thereby the value 
of his labor might be estimated at the most extremely low 
figure, it was arranged that the period of service extended 
over at least three years. For the loss that would accrue to 
the ship-owners through the dropping out of dead passen- 
gers, their available relatives, or in(^eed the whole company 
traveling together, had to become responsible to such a 
degree that the time of service which would have had to be 
fulfilled by the deceased, would be assumed by the survivors 
of the company. Children had thus to- become responsible 
for their parents, parents for their children, and travelers 
for those with whom they traveled. What an extension of 
of the year service this arrangement frequently meant, one 
may judge from the fact that in the year 1752 fifty persons, 
which came to Philadelphia in a Dutch ship, were put in 
prison until they agreed to make good the time of service of 
more than one hundred fellow-travelers who had died on 
the way of hunger and ship's-colic. 

It gave the captains no trouble, at the places of landing, 
to turn their promissory notes and contracts closed with the 
so-called redemptioners, i. e., chattels, into ready money; 
for the redemptioners furnished such an extraordinarily 
cheap means of service that the English colonists pressed 
forward, accordingly, in throngs, in order to come into pos- 
session of them. The business was carried on in the fol- 
lowing manner. When a ship loaded with emigrants arrived 
in the harber, the captain published an announcement of 
the fact in the newspapers, one of which advertisements, 
from the Baltimore Americcui of February 8, 1817, we give 
as an example : 

"German Redemptioners! The Dutch ship, Ju/vronw 
Johanna, captain, H. H. Bleeker, has arrived from Amster- 
dam with a multitude of farmers, day-laborers, and artisans. 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 31 



who shall be sold for the stipulated period allotted to each. 
There are men as well as women, also a few fine-looking 
boys and girls. Those persons who wish to provide them- 
selves with good servants are invited to apply to the ship- 
master or to the captain." 

When the purchasers came on board, it was possibly 
not permitted to the immigrants either to select their mas- 
ters or to state their preferences concerning the work to be 
done. Moreover, the members of a family dared not take 
exception to a separation from one another, whereby it very 
often came to pass that the husband from the wife, the chil- 
dren from the parents were parted for years, many times, 
indeed, for ever. When the purchaser had paid the captain 
the accumulated debt of a redemptioner, the person bought 
had to follow his new master and serve him as a bond-slave 
till the expiration of his period of service. If the master 
became tired of him, or for any reason at all did not need 
his services any longer, he was altogether at liberty to hire 
out the redemptioner elsewhere or to sell him. This was 
accomplished either through advertisem.ents in the news- 
papers or upon the "Vendu," the block, where slaves, cat- 
tle, and other property were sold. For example: "For 
sale, the time of service of a German bound girl (bound to 
service). She is a strong, fresh, and healthy wench. Has 
yet five years to serve." 

Through ingenious resellings, those sold held no copies 
of their former contracts; accordingly, therefore, there fol- 
lowed no legal evidence, so the astonished folk found them- 
selves entirely in the hands of their new owners, who in 
consequence had it in their power to extend the time of ser- 
vice of the redemptioner beyond the proper limit; for, in case 
of a difference of opinion concerning the term of service he 
was bound for, the redemptioner was exactly upon an 
equality with the negro slave, in his lack of legal standing. 
Without the permission of his master, he dared neither .«cll 



32 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 

nor buy anything-. If he was found 16 kilometers [about 
10 miles] distance from the dwelling of his owner, without 
written permission, this was regarded as an attempt at 
flight, and he would incur severe corporeal punishment. 
Persons who sheltered fleeing redemptioners, or were help- 
ful to them in their flight, had to pay a penalty of 500 pounds 
of tobacco for every 24 hours of aid afforded. If they were 
accomplices unwitting^ly, they were threatened with the 
whipping-post. Whoever caught a runaway redemptioner 
got a reward of 200 pounds of tobacco, later, a sum of 
money amounting to 50 dollars. Redemptioners recovered 
after flight would not only have added to their time of service 
ten full days for each day of their absence, but they would 
often be frightfully mistreated besides. For their owners 
possessed the full privilege to punish every mistake with 
lashes of the whip. Of this privilege many of the brutal 
slave-holders made such an immoderate abuse, that a law 
had to be proclaimed whereby for each offence not more 
than ten lashes should be given. 

The lot of the different redemptioners varied with the 
variety of human nature. Many had a good time, many a 
very hard one, especially if they fell into the hands of people 
who, out of the basest selfishness, strove to use up the 
strength of the redemptioner as much as possible. In such 
cases he would be burdened with labor to the lowest point 
of exhaustion, while the negro, engaged in the same ser- 
vice, would be spared; for the latter, forsooth, was in bond- 
age for his whole life, and had to be kept able to work. 

With female redemptioners, on the other hand, the 
slave-holders allowed themselves not infrequently to become 
guilty of abominable outrages. To that end the laws of 
the English colonies once in a while gave outright assist- 
ance. In Maryland, for example, there was passed in the 
year 1663 a law according to which white girls and women, 
who entered into the marriage relation with negroes or mu- 



HISTORY OF THE HAETWOLE FAMILY 53 



lattoes, together with the children resulting from such an 
alliance., became the property of the owner of the negro or 
mulatto in question. 

The object of the law was to restrain white women from 
contracting marriage with persons of color. This law, how- 
cver, worthless slave-holders turned to profit, in that they 
induced white female redemptioners, whose time of service 
they had acquired, into union with negroes, either by 
threatening, trickery, or force; whereby the slave-holder 
obtained full right of possession not only over the white 
victim, but also over the children. The abrogation of this 
law, which gave full support to the villainy, was first set on 
foot through a most unusual occurrence. Lord Baltimore, 
the founder and proprietor of the Maryland colony, had, 
when he visited his colony in the year 1681, among his 
domestics a girl, "Nellie," who was bound to pay the cost of 
her passage over by her labor as a servant. Before tht 
stipulated time was out, J^ord Baltimore went back to Eng- 
land, but he sold beforehand the rest of Nellie\s time of 
service to a country-man located in the colony, who, after 
two months, coupled Nellie with one of his negro slaves, 
and thereby obtained permanent possession over her. 

When Lord Baltimore learned of the oc\:urrence, he of 
course brought about the abrogation of the law of the year 
1663, but he was not able to procure freedom for his former 
servant-girl or for the two children born to her. The courts 
were engaged with this case a long time, but in the year 
1721 they came to the decision that Nellie and her children 
must remain slaves, since the marriage of the former and 
the birth of the latter took place before the repeal of the 
law of the year 1663. 

Many similar cases finally aroused the feelings of the 
Germans located in the English colonies to such an extent 
that they, indignant over the treatment which was accorded 
to their fellow-countrymen, banded themselves together in 



34 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



societies, the object of which, consisted in the abolition of 
the frig'htful traffic in humanity. One may very appropri- 
ately denominate these societies, enduring' still today, as 
the forerunners of the present day legislation regarding im- 
migrants, since it was they that brought about not only the 
abolition of the redempti oner-state, but also the more 
humane treatment of emigrants on the ships and in the port 
towns. To them is due, therefore, the hearty thanks of 
those many millions of people to whom the fruits of their 
toilsome exertions have resulted so happily. ' '

The second daughter of Johann Peter Hutwohl and 
Margaretha Ursula nee Eicher was Christina Elisabetha 
Hutwohl, bom August 3, 1700. 

The race representative, Johann Henrich H lit wohl, and 
Sophia Margaretha nee Schrupp of Manubach were blessed 
with eight children, four boys and four girls. 

The oldest child was a daughter, Anna Katharina Hut- 
wohl, bom April 1, 1720; died March 27, 1722. 

The second-oldest daughter, Christina Elisabeth Hiit- 
wohl, was bom September 1, 1721.

Anna Regina Hutwohl, bom September 10,1723. Johann 
Peter Hiitwohl married Christina Margaretha nee Fischer, 
in the year 1755. Her father was a landlord at "The 
Lion," inBacharach. In the year 1757 Johann Peter Hiit- 
wohl was appointed field-guard. Anna Regina Hutwohl

rich Hutwohl and Sophie Margaretha Schrupp, Johann 
Daniel Hutwohl. He married, in Sobemheim, on July 13, 
1752, Anna Magdalena nee Kusz, of Sobemheim. At the 
time of his marriage he was burgo-master. Johann 
Daniel Hiitwohl kept a journal, in which he described 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 37 



the current events of his time. His notes on the Seven 
Years War are interesting to read. Each year he closed 
with a devout wish. The most important entries from the 
journal are the following: 

1750 was throughout a year of rough weather. In 
June there was snow. lying on the mountains. Especially 
did the wheat, which at that time already was in blossom, 
suffer great injury in the milk-period, so that from 100 
bundles were threshed at the highest from 3 to 3 3^ measures 
of grain. Johann Daniel Hiitwohl had this year only two 
loads of white wine and an a am [about 40 gallons] of red 
wine in the cellar. 

"1752. On the 12th of March, toward evening, a fire 
shot out of the heavens, resembling a crown drawing after 
it a pale train, so that, those who saw it thought it must 
then and there have fallen upon the earth, yet it was not 
so. (Comet.) 

1752 was a good wine year. In the first half of the year 
the weather was warm, so that the blossoms came out 
especially fine. In the second half of the year there were^ 
frequent warm rains, so that the vine kept unusually rank, 
and in consequence Johann Daniel Hiitwohl was able to put 
away four loads of white wine— twice as much as two years 

before. 

The year 1753 was also a right favorable wine year. 
September set in much the same as the preceding months, 
with warm sunshine throughout, without giving any rain, 
according as one earnestly desired. October then gave a 
good warm rain, so that the clusters became quite full and 
mature. Although the wine left nothing to be desired as to 
quality, yet more^than half of it remained on hands. The 
reason lay in this, that the Dutch merchants for some years 
past no more had access to the wine of Steeg, as formerly. 
The aforesaid merchants had the right, with the Lower 
Valleys and the Upper Valleys, to fix the price of wme; ac- 



38 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



cordingly, they controlled practically all of the wine. In the 
year 1739 the Hollanders stopped buying wine from these sec- 
tions, because the selfsame districts laid a very heavy toll 
upon the Rhenish wines, while the French wines went free. 

In the year 1754, andmore particularly, in the month of 
September, his Electoral Highness gave permission for a 
new road to be laid out from Holzthor to Bacharach, up to- 
wards Nauheim, from there by the ruined Bacharach castle, 
and so further upon the mountain. (Alte Chausse.j The 
work on the new road was undertaken again this spring, 
with energy, and was carried on for the whole summer, to 
the end of the year. However, upon the mountain the sub- 
jects of the High Bailiff of Steeg, by order of his most gra- 
cious lordship, have altogether at their own expense carried 
the road forward to the Simmern boundary. This road 
has already cost an enormous amount of labor, and will yet re- 
quire very much work. The municipality had a public-road 
section, of 202 rods from Dichtelbach on to the Simmern 
boundary, assigned to it for working, by the government 
office. Because the section was judged to be at this time too 
far distant from the municipality, they have deemed it best 
to auction off the work to the lowest bidder. But the muni- 
cipality has found more work than it had assigned it be- 
fore, and therefore has suffered an evident loss. 

For the defraying of the cost, therefore, the sheep-run 
was leased for four years to the forester, Lebersorg, of 
Bacharach. Johann Daniel Hiitwohl is of the opinion that, 
whether the cattle and the people of the community shall 
reap profit thereby, time must show; it is not done with his 
will, and for the evil results which they hereby may have 
drawn upon themselves he is not responsible. 

In the year 1757 the burgomaster, Johann Daniel 
Hiitwohl, put the young men of the town under bond. 
They must provide leather buckets for the putting out of 
fire. Formerly they had also to provide a cask of wane.

then, since he had no love for study, he returned home and 
went to sea. He died as a sailor of the first class, in the 
year 1892, in a hospital in New York. The daughter is un- 
married, and lives in Simmerrr-unter-Dhaun. 

The sixth child of Friedrich Peter Hiitwohl and Katha- 
fina EHsabethe nee Schneider was Adam Hiitwohl, born in 
the year 1801; died 1802. 

The young:est child of Friedrich Peter Hittwohl and 
Katharina Elisabethe nee Schneider was Franz Hiitwohl. 
He was born October 1, 1804, and married Wilhelmine 
Friederike Fey, on the 6th of January, 1829. He resided 
in Simmem, as a saddler and upholsterer, where he also 
died February 3, 1877, at the ag'e of 72 years. He was in 
his ioumeyman-years, with his uncle in Bremen, and had 
from him a silver watch as a gift. The name of this uncle 
cannot be definitely fixed; but it was likely Johann Gabriel 
Hiitwohl or Johann Daniel Hiitwohl, sons of Burgomaster 
Johann Daniel Hiitwohl and his wife Anna Magdalina nee 
Kiisz. This uncle of Bremen was an "orphan-father" and 
died without children, Franz Hiitwohl and Wilhelmine 
Fey had six children, three boys and three girls. 

The first child of P'ranz Hiitwohl and Wilhelmine 
Friederike Fey was Charlotte Friederike Hiitwohl, She 
was born May 4, 1830; married Johann Madsack April 21, 
1865; and died May 18, 1876, at the age of 46 years. Her 
son, the teacher, Hermann Madsack ol Grafrath, was born 
December 5, 1870. 

The second child of Franz Hiitwohl and Wilhelmine 
Friederike Fey was Ludwig Hiitwohl, bom December 18, 
1831. He emigrated to America on the 2d or 20th of May, 
1850 [I860?]. There he, on account of the war, found no 
work — he was a paper-hanger and upholsterer; and he went 
to sea as a sailor. No one heard from him for a period 
of eleven years, till he was First-pilot on an East-Indiaman, 
and had passed his examination for captain. He wrote in 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 45 



the beginning- of the sixties from London that he, in the 
whole period, had neither heard German nor spoken it him- 
self, till he, at the international exhibition in London, had 
heard German, and thereby had become homesick. The 
court-commissioner Krieger, of Zabern, his brother-in-law, 
had also resided in America several years (from 1866 to 
1871), but never learned from him that he had married. 
His mother, Wilhelmine Friederike nee Fey, was of the opin- 
ion, however, that he had a wife in England. She knew noth- 
ing more definite thereof, since he was usually not a com- 
municative person regarding his past. She imagined this, 
however, because he, in one of his letters, dated at London 
in the early sixties, wrote that his wife-that-was-to-be was 
named Karoline Sulivan, and that she lived at 11 Wells 
Place, Leman Street, Whitechapel, London; that his letters 
should be addressed to that place; that they would then be 
forwarded to him in whatever part of the world he might be. 
He was manager for a ship-owner of Boston or Baltimore, 
and died in New York, December 16, 1874, in his 43d year. 

The third child of Franz Hiitwohl and Wilhelmine 
Friederike 7iee Fey is Fritz Hutwohl, born September 10, 
1833. He married Christine Johanns and, in the year 1866, 
emigrated to America. He lives in Jersey City, and has 
two sons.

48 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



of 19 years, 11 months, and 17 days, Maria Katharina nee 
Prasz, who was born March 23, 1822, and who, at the time 
of her wedding, was 20 years, 9 months, and 16 days old. 

He had been brought up for the trade of cooperage, 
already followed by his ancestors in his father's house; and 
had served his apprenticeship from September 8, 1839, to 
September 8, 1841, in Bacharach. 

After taking possession of the ancestral residence, June 
1, 1855, he conducted also the associated brewery and busi- 
ness of inn-keeping. Thoroughly familiar with the raising 
and culture of vines, he produced good home-made wines, 
which built up for his house a reputation and celebrity 
which, after the construction of the Rhine Railway and the 
highway from Bacharach to Hundsriick, from 1858 to 1860, 
continued with unabated vigor. 

He succeeded also in building up recognition abroad 
for the wines of Steeg, and in organizing a wine trade, which 
is now being carried on by his sons, Peter and Jacob. 

Misfortune, alas, did not pass him by. On February 
13, 1882, a fire broke out in a neighboring house, which laid 
the old ancestral dwelling of the Hiitwohls in ashes. A new 
house. No. 35, sprang up upon the selfsame spot, and sim- 
ultaneously he built for his son Jacob No. 34, adjacent. He 
built also a part of the cellarage No, 19 F. 

He possessed a never- wearying industry, and provided 
for the welfare of his family, who will cherish his memory 
always in honor. 

He died October 10, 1898, at the age of 75 years, 8 and 
one-half months, after his wife had preceded him in death. 
May 22, 1892, at the age of 70 years and 2 months.

To Mr. Johann Friedrich Hiitwohl, who already

with industry, honesty, and truth, according as we have 
learned to know him most intimately from all sides, it has 
been decided on our part, in reference to our pastor, that 
we present to him in sincerity the testimonial that he, in 
his office, has been most skilful and diligent; in his conduct 
toward every man, most charitable and obliging, and has 
served the whole congregation most profitably. His con- 
duct is without reproach, altogether of the sort as so well 
becomes a clergyman. He is, therefore, esteemed and be- 
loved by us. Fortunate the church that has such a teacher.

Herewith is the relationship of the widely ramified

history shall be close with the wish that it may contribute 
toward establishing the relations of kinship and in perserv- 
ing the interest in the old ancestral seat of Steeg. 

This delightful continuation of attachment the Ameri- 
can branch of the family, separated for 153 years, mani-

Joel P. Hiitwohl (mention on page 41), of Northfield, Min- 
nesota, are intending to visit Steeg in the latter part of 1901. 
There may also be presented the appended picture of 
Steeg, which, at the spot where the sun is shining, shows 
the present family dwellings, where of old lived those of 
our forefathers concerning whom the following verses 
speak so ingeniously; lines which were inscribed in the re- 
gister of Jacob Hiitwohl's tavern by a visitor to his cellar- 
ages, August 16, 1895. 

When Bacchus, merry comrade, wddely famed. 
For home-seat hard upon the Rhine's green strand 
Chose here the fairest spot in all the land. 
It was from thenceforth Bacchus' Altar named. 
He^e planted he and titled the trailing vine.

And anxiously provided for its growth, 

Whereby it filled each robust drinker's mouth 

With excellent and stimulating wine. 

But most a vale near by evoked his love; 

To it the Rhine gave off a narrow way; 

From dawning there till night the sunbeams played, 

And there the noble wine of Steeg gushed forth. 

This treasure, then, to guard and safely keep. 

Chose Bacchus for himself a cunning man. 

Who in the culture of the vine was skilled, 

And faithful also to discharge a trust. 

"Hiit wohl," said Bacchus, garlanded in green, 

"Hiit wohl" these clusters and their world-wide 

fame; 
"Hiit wohl" the mountain in his sun-kissed sheen, 
And, "Hiit wohl" hencefourth shall be called thy 

name. 
And to thy sons and theirs I will insure 
This guardianship henceforth, the trust commit, 
So long as this wine's worth is not one whit 
Made less — this boon, gift of a god, kept pure. 
Friend Bacchus spake. We have to-day made test, 
That pure and without fault the wine appears; 
Wherefore my Steeg be for a thousand years 
By Hiitwohl's sons, by sonship's right, possest.

History of the Heatwole Family 

FROM THE 

Landing of the Ancestors of the Race 

UP TO THE PRESENT TIME 

BY 

D. A. HEATWOLE. 
(1882.) 

PREFACE. 

For some time the author of the following pages has 
had in contemplation a brief history of the Heatwole fam- 
ily which has, within the present century become so numer- 
ous in Rockingham and adjoining counties in the state 
of Virginia. 

The object of the writer in the beginning was to gather 
such information that should lead to a definite knowledge of 
the rise and progress of the race from as early a date as 
possible and to transfer the same upon the pages of a record 
book kept by him for his personal satisfaction, as well as for 
profit for those of his decendants, who may look over its 
pages in future generations. 

But, through the earnest solicitations of some whose 
opinions are entitled to respect, the writer has now consented 
to have the manuscript printed and put in pamphlet form, 
for distribution among such of the progency who may de- 
sire some knowledge or trace of their ancestry. 

Having this purpose in view, the writer has gathered 
such information that he thinks can be relied on and which 
he believes to be correct. From the material thus collected 
the following pages are compiled: 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 63 



History of the Heatwole Family 

One hundred and thirty years ago, the ship Two Bro- 
thers^ with Thomas Arnott as master or captain, sailed from 
Rotterdam in Holland, and after having- touched at Ports- 
mouth in England, arrived at Philadelphia on the 15th day of 
September, 1748, where she landed ninty-six German emi- 
grants, one of whom was Matheus Hlitwohr the great an- 
cestor from whom decended all thd Heatwoles now so num- 
erous in Rockingham county, Virginia, and elsewhere. 

From the scraps of evidence that have been produced, 
it is believed that he was a native of what is now called 
Rheinish Bavaria, then known as Poltz or Pholtz (Palati- 
nate). Of his parentage but little is known to the present 
generation, yet the information obtained generlly favors the 
belief that his parents adhered or belonged to the Lutheran 
persuasion, and like most of the German emigrants of his, 
time made the state of Pennsylvania his home. Here in 
the course of time he married a Miss Haas, a sister of Chris- 
tian Haas, who afterwards moved to the Shenandoah Valley 
in the state of Virginia, and settled permanently near Tur- 
leytown in Rcokingham county. He was the same Haas 
who died some thirty years ago, and was said to have been 
over one hundred years of age at the time of his death. 

No. 1 — First Generation. 

Matheus Hiitwohl, by his marriage to Miss Haas, be- 
came the father of six children— David, Jacob, John, Chris- 
tian, Mary and Anna. These were, however, soon left father- 
less by the sudden death of their parent, which occured at a 
time when he was trying to get a calf into the stable. The 
animal refusing to go in finally ran off into the woods. He 
followed it, but did not return. Search being made, he was

found in a sitting posture, leaning- against a tree, and was 
dead. 

This sad bereavement left his widow with six small 
children to care for. Being in limited circumstances she 
was necessarily compelled to put them all out among 
strangers. 

No. 2 — Second Generation 1. 

(1) Jacob, after becoming grown, married and moved to 
the Shenandoah valley and settled near Charlestown in Jeff- 
erson county, now West Virginia. Here he lived quite a 
number of years, and died at an advanced age, leaving but 
few descendants of his name.^ 

No. 3 — Second Generation 1. 

(2) John, married in Pennsylvania, where he also died, 
being the father of two children — a son and a daughter. 
The son died when about 18 years of age. The daughter 
married; but the writer has not been able to ascertain as to 
the name of her husband. 

No. 4 — Second Generation 1. 

(3) Christian died unmarried at Alexandria, Virginia, 
where he was buried. He was a shoemaker by trade. He 
was the youngest of the children of Matheus Hiitwohl.

(4) Anna married Samuel Weaver, from whom have 
descended the Weavers of Rockingham county, Virginia. 
She was the mother of the late Samuel Weaver, who died 
on his farm 2]/^ miles west of Harrisonburg. This farm is 
now in possession of John Brunk, who married one of her 
granddaughters .

ingham county, Virginia and for some time lived on the 
farm now owned and occupied by Hugh Swope' near Dale 
Enterprise, Virginia; but subsequently settled permanently 
three miles west of Mt. Clinton, near North Mountain, 
where they lived for a number of years, and brought up a 
family of eight children named as foUoWvS — John, Peter, 
Jacob, Martin, Samuel, Susan, Mary and Elizabeth. 

John Bowman died September 17th, 1834, and was the 
father of our respected friend and kinsman, Benj. D. Bow- 
man; who now resides near Mt. Clinton and is one of the 
few descendants now living in Rockingham county that 
sprang from Peter and Mary Bowman. Peter Bowman, 
his grandfather, accidently came to his death on December 
22nd, 1823, at the age of 60 years, 10 months and 7 days. 
Like many of the early settlers who came to Virginia, 
he became fond of hunting. Being quite large and fleshy 
it was his habit to ride out into the mountains, hitch his 
horse, and then hunt on foot. While out on his last hunt- 
ing excursion his horse came home in the evening. As he 
[Bowman] did not return search was made by following 
the trail of the horse. The party who instituted the search 
found where his horse had broken loose from the tree to 
which he had been hitched, and by following his own track, 
they found him dead, still holding in his grasp his musket, 
the contents of which were lodged in his breast. It was 
distinctly seen where he had slipped in the snow, and in 
order to avoid a fall had struck the breech end of his musket 
upon the ground, which was evidently the cause of its dis- 
charge. 

Mary, his wife, whose maiden name was Hiedwohl, 
as before stated, was born in Lancaster county, Pennsyl- 
vania, December 18th, 1766, and died some ten years after 
the death of her husband, in February, 1833, in the 66th

year of her age. Both were buried in the family grave- 
yard on the farm now owned by Samuel F. Sho waiter. 

No. 7 — Second Generation 1. 

(6) The writer being more particularly iuterested in the 
history of David and Magdalene Hiedwohl, and their de- 
scendants, will from henceforth confine his attention princi- 
pally to the tracing up of their nnmerous progeny. 

David was born in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, 
in the year 1767, and, as before stated, was left fatherless 
when but a small boy; and as the custom in those early 
times, was bound out until he reached a certain age and 
was then expected to learn a trade. Unfortunately, he fell 
into rough hands, where he became a victom to harsh treat- 
ment, and was frequently so maltreated that he carried scars 
to his grave from beatings he had received; and as is usually 
the case nowadays, he ran away from his place of punish- 
ment, and joined himself to a man by the name of Momaw, 
in whose family he remained until he became 18 years of 
age. 

After that he went to reside with his uncle. Christian 
Hass, before mentioned, of whom he learned the shoemaker 
trade. Becoming master of his trade, he soon after married 
Magdalene Weland, whose parents had left Lancaster 
county, Pennsylvania, when she was but a small girl. They 
had settled about oile hundred miles north of Harrisburg, 
Pa., in the then wilds which lay between the north and south 
branches of the Susquehanna River. But the encroach- 
ments of the pale faces, upon the hunting grounds of the 
hostile Indians, did not meet the general approbation of the 
redskins of the forest. "Squatter Sovereignty" was not 
embraced in the code of laws by which the Red men were 
governed; and most of the early pioneer settlers of that sec- 
tion learned, by sad experience, that this was too true. 
Such was the case with the Weland family. Twice were 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 67 



they driven from their home, and had their buildings burned 
by the Indians; and in one of their skirmishes with the foe, 
one of the sons was shot dead and another wounded, the 
rest of the family barely escaping with their lives. 

At this time Magdalene was about 14 years old and con- 
cluded to remain in Lancaster county whither the rest of the 
family had fled for safety. 

For the space of about seven years, she lived with a 
family by the name of Grabill, and it was here that David 
Hiedwohl became acquainted with and married her. After 
their marriage, they remained in the county in which they 
were born, and lived for two or three years in a house be- 
longing to Bishop Henry Martin, where he carried on his 
trade. They afterwards moved to Franklin county, Penn- 
sylvania, where they bought a small farm 2 ^ miles from 
Chambersburg, Here they remained about 2^ years. 

At this date, [1764] a constant stream of German emi- 
grants was coursing its way out of Pennsylvania and pour- 
ing into the Shenandoah valley. Among the many Germans 
who left Pennsylvania at that time, in search of cheap lands 
was David Hiedwohl, who visited the "Valley" and bought 
85 acres of land located in Rockingham county, Virginia, 2)4, 
miles south of Harrisonburg; upon which was built a small 
cabin. The land cost him the sum of three hundred pounds 
[about $1,400] and was bounded as follows: "Beginning at 
some grubs and a heap of stones; Patent and Harrison's corner, 
and running S. 25 E. 162 poles to a black-oak in Aaron Solo- 
mon's field, and with his line, N. 53 E. 13 poles to two wal- 
nuts; his corner and Thomas's and with Thomas's line N. 
42 E. 45 poles to a white oak and hickory; N. Z2 E. 11 poles 
crossing a branch to a walnut; N. 70 E. to the Patent hne, 
and with the same N. 11 E. 69 poles to a stump, about a pole 
east of a large locust; N. 68 E. 88 poles to a pine; Bushong's 
corner; and with his line south eighty-seven degrees, west 
two hundred and twelve poles to the beginning." The 



68 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



same land is now in the possession of George G. SnelL' 

After visiting his friends who had already preceeded 
him to the "'valley," he returned to his home in Pennsylvania, 
where he sold his lands, and either in the fall of 1795 or the 
spring of 1796 he bid adieu to his friends and kindred who 
remained in his native land, and with their blessing started 
on his journey to Virginia. 

For the benefit of his descendants of the present genera- 
tion, the writer will here give the statement as it was related 
him, what constituted the harness, or '^rig" of his team: 
straw collars, rope traces, with other necessary gearing, all 
of which was made of the same material. Reaching the 
home of his adoption, he settled permanently upon his farm 
where in connection, he carried on his trade for a number 
of years. The writer distinctly remembers bearing away 
his first pair of shoes, which were made at his shop.^ 

David, seems to have shared to more than an ordinary 
degree of that prolific, procreative virtue, which has since 
become so inherent to most of his descendants. He became 
the father of eleven children— seven sons and four daughters, 
all of whom, with one exception, arrived to mature age. 
He was one of those plain, unassuming men of his time, and 
was a believer in, and a strong advocate of the non-resistent 
doctrine as taught by Menno Simon. He was scrupulously 
exact in his mode of dress and also in that of his children — 
never varied in the color or cut of his garb, and taught his 
children the German language only. He was an elder in 
the church of his persuasion, [Mennonite] and tried to 
comply with what he believed to be the will of his Lord and 
Master. He died April 8th 1842, in the 75th year of his 
age, and was buried in the Blosser graveyard 1^ miles 
northeast of Dayton, where his wife, Magdalene had also

75th year of her age. 

The following is a copy of the "Family Record" of 
David and Magdalene Hiitwohl which I give, as nearly as I 
can translate from the German. This will give some idea 
as to how family records were kept in the latter part of the 
eighteenth and the beginning of the ninteenth centuries. 

"On October 26th 1789, was born to us our son Gabriel, 
in the sign of the "Waterman." 

On December 19th 1790, was born to us our daughter 
Frances, in the sign of the "Twins." 

On September 7th 1792, was born to us our daughter 
named Elizabeth, in the sign of the "Waterman." 

On June the 7th, 1795, was born our son Christian, and 
has the "Waterman" for a sign. 

On September 15th, 1797, was bom our son David, and 
has for a sign the "Crab." 

On September 23rd, 1799, was born to us a son named 
Abraham, and has for a sign the "Crab." 

On March 15th, 1802, our daughter Magdalene' was

70 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 



the eldest of the family was born in Lancaster county, Penn- 
sylvania, and was six or seven years old when his father 
removed to Virginia. He married Margaret Swank, a 
daughter of Jacob and Polly Swank, and settled in Rocking- 
ham county, near the "Mole Hill" in the woods. Being 
possessed of a strong constitution, together with an indomi- 
table will, he plied his axe and maul to advantage, and as 
the forest trees by which he was surrounded grew less in 
number, so little by little his few tillable acres in the course 
of time increased to quite a farm, the boundaries of which 
were so situated that never, through the whole course of his 
life, did it suit to join fencing with any of his neighbors. 
He was a cooper by trade, and this he carried on in connec- 
tion with his farm. Many a barrel was turned out of his 
shop in those days when, by converting into flour, was the 
only way in which farmers of that time could realize any 
money from their wheat crops. 

He was blessed with a family of children that numbered 
an even dozen, eight sons and four daughters, all of whom 
married, and settled within a few miles of the old home- 
stead, on which their father remained up to the date of his 
death, which took place June 18th, 1875, at the advanced 
age of 85 years, 7' months and 22 days. He was buried in 
the old "Shank' ' grave-yard, by the side of his wife who died 
six or seven years before. 

David G., their eldest child, was born April 7th, 1812, 
and died near Dale Enterprise, August 18th, 1857; buried 
in the "Shank" graveyard. 

Polly was born December 27th, 1813; married Sam- 
uel Long, and died October 26th, 1849; was buried near the 
Garber Church, 2 miles south of Harrisonburg.

parents to Franklin county. She was married to Henry 
Shank, of Rockingham county, Va., and lived at the time of 
of her death near Cherry Grove in the locality known as 
the "Brush" some ten miles north of Harrisonburg. Her 
death occured January 3d, 1836; at the age of 46 years and 
4 months, was buried in the Brenneman Graveyard near 
Edom in Rockingham county. She was the mother of twelve 
children, five sons and seven daughters. Their names were,

Susan. David and Samuel died in Morgan county, Missouri; 
Henry, in Ohio; Abraham, Anna and Frances, in Indiana, 
and Rebecca, Elizabeth, and Susan, in Rockingham county, 
Virginia. The writer made considerable effort to secure 
the family record, but having failed in this purpose, it is not 
possible to give dates of the biiths and deaths in the family.

Christian, the fourth child of David and Magdalene 
Heatwole, was born in Pennsylvania. He married Barbara 
Emswiler, a daughter of Jacob and Elisabeth Emswiler, by 
whom he became the father of three children two sons and 
one daughter, whose names were Polly, Jacob, and John 
Eliot. Polly and Jacob both died young and were buried 
near Turleytown, Rockingham county, where the family 
resided for some years; from here he removed to Shenan- 
doah county, Virginia, where he resided for a considerable 
length of time. Becoming dissatisfied with his location he 
sold his land and bought a farm in Hampshire county, now 
West Virginia. Here he remained up to the time of his 
death which took place August 31st, 1853, at the age of 58

his parents, until he became of age, and in a few years, left 
the scenes of his childhood and went to the state of Ohio, 
where he married Barbara Kolb, a daughter of Henry and 
Elizabeth Kolb, of Columbia county. While here he applied 
his mind to the study of medicine and in the course of 
time, by hard study, and close application, fully qualified 
himself to alleviate his fellow beings of the ills, which the 
flesh is heir to. He first practiced his profession for some 
time in his adopted state; then for some years in the north- 
ern part of Pennsylvania, and for some length of time in 



HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 77 



Waterford, Elkhart county, Indiana. At present he is a 
resident of Goshen, in the said county, still in the practice 
of his profession. Although the youngest of the family, 
and one of the two remaining unplucked branches that 
sprang from the parent stock, and is now about to pass the 
66th milestone on the highway of time, along which he has 
here and there, encountered a thorn in his path; but accord- 
ing to nature's law he has but a few more years to pass, ere 
he reaches his three score and ten. Notwithstanding his 
locks are frosted with the snows of life's December, yet his 
mind seems to be clear, and comprehensive, and his body 
full of life and energy. His has been a life of activity and 
perseverance, and unlike most of the other members of the 
family, has been a warm advocate of the cause of education; 
that is, if he may be judged by the liberal education he has 
secured to his children. As he became the father of eleven 
children, to him too must have been transmitted that prolific 
generative power, known to be one of the prominent charac- 
teristics of the Heatwole race. 

The following is an extract from a letter to the author, 
giving dates of births and deaths, and places of burial: 

"Susannah was born August 17th 1838, and died June 
2nd 1857, was buried at the Waterford cemetery in Elkhart 
county, Ind. Elizabeth was born December 13th 1842, 
Matilda April 28th, 1845, died May 25th, 1848, was buried

Waterford cemetery, Elkhart county, Ind, Rebecca was 
born March 31st, 1851, Joseph H., April 6th, 1853. Henry 
March 24th, 1855, died November 16th, of the same year,

78 HISTORY OF THE HEATWOLE FAMILY 

ford cemetery, Elkhart county, Indiana. 

From the foregoing it will be seen that of the eleven 
children but six are now living, two sons Joseph H., and 
Joel P., and four daughters, Elizabeth, Catharine, Rebecca, 
and Emma, three of whom are married; Catharine married 
Uriah Anderson, July I4th, 1864. Elizabeth, Frank Wis- 
singer, April 25, 1867; and Rebecca, Levi Croop, Novem- 
ber 20, 1875. Joseph is a graduate of the Medical College 
at Cincinnati, and is now located at Middlebury, Elkhart 
county, Indiana. Joel P. is also located at the same place 
as the editor and proprietor of the Middlebury Record. Both 
occupy positions that will enable them to leave their marks 
on the scroll of time. From the foregoing pages the reader 
will observe that of ten children who sprang from David and 
Magdalene Heatwole [at this date, April 16th, 1878,] buttwo 
of them are now living, Abraham' the sixth child and Henry 
the youngest. From these ten have decended 89 grand 
children, an average of eight and ninetenths, 56 of whom 
are now living; 568 great grand children, 140 great, great 
grand children, and two great, great, great grand children. 
At this late date, it is not possible for the writer to ascertain 
with any accuracy as to what is the number living at the 
present time, who descended from the parent stock, from 
the fact that nearly every state in the Union is represented 
by some branch of the family, but is believed that sufficient 
information has been obtained to vouch for the assertion 
that between 550 or 600 souls are now living, in whose veins 
flow the blood of David and Magdalene Heatwole who emi- 
grated to Virginia something less than a centur}^ ago." 

Here ends the genealogy as first published by D. A. 
Heatwole in 1882. From this point forward the family 
registers are as complete as was possible to obtain then, 
and brings the Heatwole record up to the present time (1907). 

I Abraham Heatwole died March 13, 1879, near Dale Enterprise, Va., 
at his home where he lived for 46 years, aged 79 years 8 months, and 20 
days, and was buried in the Shank graveyard.

born on the Keagy farm, near Mt. Crawford, Rockingham

stomach, at Elkhart City, Ind., at 5:30 p.m., July 22, 1899, 
at the age of 50 years, 9 months, and 6 days. 

The first 30 years of his life were spent in his native 
State. In early life he rose to prominence in educational 
circles of the county, and as a teacher in the public schools, 
ranked among the foremost in competency and zeal for the 
work. 

Being a member of the Mennonite church from early 
life, in July, 1875, he was ordained to the ministry of that 
order. In this sphere of life, for which he seemed pecu- 
liarly fitted, he rendered most faithful service to his church 
and the Master's cause in general. During the 24 years 
covered by his ministry he travelled extensively as an evan- 
gelist — preaching the Gospel in no less than twenty States 
and various parts of Canada, and the number of converts

David A. Heatwole married Catherine Driver, of Tim- 
berville, Virg-inia. She was born September 4, 1828, and 
died July 27, 1906. Farmer. P. O., Dale Enterprise, 
Virg-inia. Mennonite. He served a term as county super- 
visor of central district and many times as assessor of real 
estate of the district; also served on commissions to locate 
roads and bridges in the county. He is author of a History of 
the Heatwole Family, and furnished almost entirely the ma- 
terial for this volume. He was instrumental in the organi- 
zation of societies among the young people of his community 
at different times for their intellectual improvement. He was 
the godfather of the Dale Enterprise Literary Society, 
organized in 1885, and which did so much toward the uplift- 
ing of many of the young men of that community. He always 
gave it the greatest encouragement, and at a critical mo- 
ment in its existence built, at his own expense, a nice hall 
on his farm that the organization might have a home. This 
is probably the most far reaching work of his life, and in 
Which he likely takes a most pardonable pride. 

He was president of the West Rockingham Mutual 
Fire Insurance Company for 25 years, which was organized 
in 1872, until a few years ago when he resigned on account 
of his advanced age. He was also president of the Har- 
risonburg and Rawley Springs Turnpike Company, resign- 
ing this position only a few years ago for the same reason. 

He is now living an octogenarian on the farm upon 
which he was reared near Dale Enterprise, Virginia. 

Their children are: 

1. Lewis J,, born December 4, 1852. 

2. Silas, born March 7, 1854; died March 8, 1854.
