REPORT OF THE PROCEEDINGS 

OF THE 

Pennsylvania-German Society 

FOR THE 

TWENTY-SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY 

OF THE 

SOCIETY'S EXISTENCE 



Report of the Secretary. 

Reading, Pa., September 12, 19 17. 
To THE Chairman and Members of the Executive 
Committee. 
Gentlemen: As you are all aware, on account of the ex- 
isting war, and the fact that many members of the families 
of our members are on the fighting line in France, together 
with the fact that the time and energy of everyone is now 
devoted to matters relating to carrying on the war, the 
Executive Committee decided that the best interests of the 
Society demanded that the Annual Meeting be omitted this 
year. I have, therefore, thought it advisable to present to 
you at this time my annual report as Secretary. 

Four meetings of the Executive Committee were held 
during the year, as follows: January 15, at Reading; April 
23, at Harrisburg; June 22, at Pottstown, and September 
12, at Reading. 

During the year the following members of the Society 
have died: 

Hon. John W. Bittenger, August 27, 1917. 
Rev. Horace E. Hayden, August 22, 19 17. 
Hon. Henry Houck, March 13, 19 17.

During the year a suitable book-case was provided, to 
hold the books, etc., belonging to the Society, which was 
placed in the hall of the Historical Society of Berks 
County, at Reading. 

Arrangements were made with the State Librarian to 
obtain photostat copies of all the lists of immigrants in the 
archives of the state, but this has been postponed for the 
present on account of the high price and poor quality of 
the photographic chemicals now obtainable. 

Your Secretary would again call attention to the neces- 
sity of securing more active cooperation on the part of the

members of the Society in the matter of preparing his- 
torical articles suitable for publication in the annual vol- 
umes of the Society. There is still a great deal to be done 
in this direction, and there is no lack of fields in which to 
work, but unless the members are willing to render assist- 
ance but little can be accomplished.

Secretary.

John Wierman Bittenger was born at York Springs, 
Adams County, Pa., on November lo, 1834, the son of 
Henry and Julia A. (Sheffer) Bittenger. On both pa- 
ternal and maternal sides he was descended from Revolu- 
tionary stock. His great-grandfather, Captain Nicholas

was captured by the British at Fort Washington. His 
maternal great-grandfather also served in the Revolution. 

Judge Bittenger received his early education at Stras- 
burg Academy and Pennsylvania College, Gettysburg. 
He began the study of law under Moses McClean, at 
Gettysburg, and completed his legal course in the office of 
W. Viers Bouic, of Rockville, Md. In 1856 he was ad- 
mitted to practice in the Maryland courts. In 1857 he 
received the degree of LL.B. from the Harvard Law 
School, when he settled in Lexington, Ky., where he re- 
mained for three years. In i860 he removed to York, 
Pa., where he followed his profession for the remainder 
of his life. 

In 1890, on the death of Judge John Gibson, Governor 
Beaver appointed him Judge of the Nineteenth Judicial 
District. He was elected to the position the same year, 
and reelected in 1900, retiring from the bench the first 
Monday of January, 19 12.

Col. A. Frank Seltzer. 

Col. A. Frank Seltzer, a prominent member of the 
Lebanon County Bar, was born on the old Seltzer planta- 
tion at Union Water Works in Lebanon County, Pa., and 
was descended from two of the oldest families in the 
County. The name is derived from Seltzer Springs, in 
the Duchy of Nassau, Germany, from which place Mat- 
thias Seltzer, the founder of the American branch of the 
family, emigrated. He located at the Union Water 
Works in 1730. There was born Jacob Seltzer, his grand- 
son, who married Eleanor Clark, a daughter of Benjamin 
Clark, both of Lebanon County. 

Their son, John Clark, the father of A. Frank, was 
born at the old homestead and became a prominent man. 
He was the first postmaster at Mt. Nebo, then called 
Seltzerville, active in politics as a Whig, and, later, as a 
Republican upon the disintegration of the former party. 
He married Elizabeth Faber, of Lebanon County, daugh- 
ter of Jacob Faber and grand-daughter of Philip Faber, 
of Lebanon County, a descendant of Adam Faber, who 
emigrated to America at a very early date. 

Col. Seltzer's early schooling was obtained at Balmar's 
Military Academy, West Chester, Pa., and at the Cum- 
berland Valley Institute, Mechanicsburg, Pa., where he 
prepared for Franklin and Marshall College, from which 
he graduated and held the degree of Master of Arts. He 
taught at the Select School, also at Witmer's Academy,

both of Palmyra, Pa., and served as Associate Principal 
of the Freeburg Academy, Freeburg, Snyder Co., Pa. 

After leaving college he went to Europe and studied at 
Paris, France, and in Germany. Prior to the outbreak of 
the Civil War he read law in the office of John W. Kil- 
linger, Esq., Lebanon, Pa. 

Shortly after the beginning of the War he entered the 
United States Militai7 Service, in June, 1862, as First 
Lieutenant of Company G, 115th Reg't. P. V., Third Bri- 
gade, Second Division, Third Corps, Army of the Poto- 
mac. He was promoted to Captain in July, 1863, and 
participated in some of the most important battles of the 
war, including Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Get- 
tysburg, receiving wounds, on each occasion, at Fredericks- 
burg, McLean's Ford and Gettysburg. On account of 
physical disability he was honorably discharged from the 
service March 30, 1864. 

A year later, in March, 1865, he was admitted to the 
Lebanon County Bar, where he remained in continuous 
and successful practice almost until his death, which oc- 
curred on Tuesday night, June 12, 19 17, when seventy- 
nine years of age, as the result of senile debility. He was 
also a member of the Bars of both the Supreme Court of 
Pennsylvania and that of the United States. From Jan- 
uary, 1893, until January, 1896, he served as District At- 
torney for Lebanon County. 

Col. Seltzer was an extensive traveler, largely covering 
the Western Hemisphere, and in 1898, making a tour of 
the world, passing through Europe, Asia and Africa. For 
a period of some years he wrote frequently and was a well- 
known contributor of humorous articles to standard publi- 
cations under the nom-de-plume of " Paul Grave." He

had also quite a reputation as a lecturer at teachers' insti- 
tutes and other assemblies, likewise as a platform orator. 

He was a Repubhcan in politics. In 1899 he was ap- 
pointed aide-de-camp on the staff of Governor William A. 
Stone, of Pennsylvania, with the rank of Lieutenant- 
Colonel. 

He was a Charter Member and Past Commander of 
Sedgewick Post, 42, G. A. R., Department of Pennsyl- 
vania ; Honorary Vice-President of the Federated Humane

ceeding the late Hon. George F. Baer to that office; mem- 
ber of the Steitz Club, of Lebanon, Pa., Camp 381, P. O. 
S. of A., and other organizations. His church affiliation 
was with St. Luke's Parish, of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church, Lebanon, Pa. 

As a member of the Lebanon County Historical Society, 
and the Pennsylvania-German Society, to which latter he 
was admitted on July 18, 1892, he always took an active 
interest in historical affairs. 

In 1905 Col. Seltzer married Miss Sarah L. Linea- 
weaver, a daughter of Dr. Simeon T. Lineaweaver and 
grand-daughter of the Rev. Henry Harbaugh, D.D., who 
survives him, without issue.

Rev. S. A. Bridges Stopp. 

Rev. Samuel Augustus Bridges Stopp was born at Allen- 
town, March 19, 1875, the son of John Stopp and Ella C. 
M. Dech, grandson of Joseph Stopp (18 15-1866) and 
Margaret Ann Hamlin, great-grandson of Jacob Stopp 
(1772-1839) and Christina Anewalt, and great-great- 
grandson of John Stopp. 

His maternal grandparents were Solomon Dech ( 1818- 
1876) and Matilda Dreibach, great-grandparents, Andrew 
Dech (1793-1854) and Catharine Heller (1790-1866), 
great-great-grandparents, Jacob Dech (i 746-1 833) and 
Christina Best. His grandmother, Matilda Dreisbach, 
was the daughter of Jacob Dreisbach (1794-18 25) and 
Magdalena Bliem (i 798-1 847), granddaughter of Jacob 
Dreisbach (1759-18 17) and Anna Margaret Bieber 
( 1 763-1 857), great-granddaughter of Simon Dreisbach 
(1730-1806) and Dorothea Dies (1732-1773), and 
great-great-granddaughter of Simon Dreisbach (1698- 
1785). 

Rev. Stopp obtained his education at Muhlenberg Acad- 
emy and Muhlenberg College, from the latter of which he 
was graduated in 1896. During his college course he was 
a member of the Euterpean Literary Society, associate 
editor of the Ciarla, the Junior annual, and editor-in-chief 
of the Muhlenberg. In the autumn of 1896 he entered

President of the United States, Graduating with honors 
in 1897, Mr. Stopp toolc a post-graduate course in lan- 
guages and literature and received the A.M. degree from 
Princeton in 1898. This was followed by a three years' 
course at the Lutheran Theological Seminary, Mt. Airy, 
Philadelphia, where he was graduated in 1901, and or- 
dained to the ministry of the Lutheran church in June of 
that year, being shortly thereafter called to the pastorate 
of St. Paul's Church, Doylestown, Pennsylvania, where

Church of the Ascension, Brooklyn, New York, and 
from 1907 to 1909, of St. Andrew's-by-the-Sea, Atlantic

retire from active pastorates, but he, from time to time, 
supplied various churches within the Allentown and 
Wilkes-Barre conferences of the Lutheran Church. 

As a writer on religious subjects he was widely and 
favorably known. His monographs, published by the

CHURCH RECORDS OF THE NEW GOSHENHOPPEN 

REFORMED CONGREGATION, UPPER HANOVER 

TOWNSHIP, MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA. 

VOLUME I, 1731-1761. 
VOLUME II, 1762-1832. 

Translated and Edited by 
William J. Hinke, Ph.D., D.D. 

The church record herewith published has the unique distinction 
of being the oldest known record book of the Reformed Church in 
the United States. It is the property of the New Goshenhoppen 
Reformed congregation, which worships in the New Goshenhoppen 
Reformed Church, a building standing about one mile west of East 
Greenville, Montgomery County, Pa., close to the east bank of the 
Perkiomen Creek. 

The book measures 75^ inches in width and I23/^ inches in 
length. It is bound in heavy, leather-bound, oak covers. The 
leather was at one time tastefully tooled, but it is now torn and 
shows the signs of age. It was also provided with iron clasps, but 
they have mostly disappeared, and only parts of them have survived. 
The number of leaves still in the book is eighty-one. They are 
water-stained and yellow with age. 

The publication of this record is justified by both historical as 
well as genealogical considerations. It is on the one hand an im-

portant source of family history for the Goshenhoppen region, 
making us acquainted with some of the most prominent families in 
the Perkiomen Valley. But it is also important as a source for 
church history, because it contains the record of the ministerial 
labors of some of the earliest Reformed ministers in Pennsylvania. 

The title page is especially interesting and important. It was 
written by John Henry Goetschius (or Goetschy). Being undated 
it was formerly thought to have been written as early as 1731, when 
the first baptismal entries were made. But this is now known to be 
an error, because documents both in Switzerland and Pennsylvania 
prove that Mr. Goetschy did not come to Pennsylvania till 1735. 
As the title page of the Great Swamp record was written in 1736, 
so it is most likely the case with this record. At least we cannot 
be far from right when we say that It was entered about the year 
1736. 

The title page reads verbatim et literatim:

[These 69 baptisms were entered during the ministry of John 
Peter Miller. The chirography is that of a well educated man 
and the natural inference is that Mr. Miller himself made these 
entries. His ministry at Goshenhoppen is placed beyond doubt by 
the letters of Mr. Boehm, quoted above (see p. 79). His state- 
ments are supported by the fact that in the 26th baptism, on April 
16, 1732, Johann Peter Miiller acted as sponsor (see p. 278), a 
role which the pastor frequently filled in early times. Cf. the 56th 
baptism of Mr, Goetschy (see p. 284), and the 8th baptism of 
Frederick Casimir Miiller (see p. 286).]

[These 25 children were baptized by the Rev. Peter Henry 
Dorsius, of Nehaminy, Bucks County. The entries were not made 
by him, but are in a wretched scrawl, made perhaps by one of the 
elders. The letters of Mr, Boehm, quoted above (see p. 137), make 
it evident that Mr. Dorsius was in Goshenhoppen, both before as 
well as after his journey to Holland, which took place from May, 
1743, to January, 1744. The presence of Mr. Dorsius at Goshen- 
hoppen on May 6, 1744, is also vouched for by Mr. Boehm (see 
(p. 142). On the previous day he baptized the last six children.]

[These 35 entries (except one or two) are in the wretched, but 
well-known handwriting of Frederick Casimir Miller. His pres- 
ence is also vouched for by the eighth and ninth baptisms, which con- 
tain his name. As the entries of Rev. Weiss began in 1747 (see 
p. 301), the ministry of Miller seems to have extended from 1745 
to 1747. But the later entries prove that he made occasional visits 
to Goshenhoppen and baptized children there as late as April 28, 
1750. As the record remained in the hands of his followers, he 
was able to make these later entries. Cf. the following note of 
Weiss on p. 37.] 

Before the church record made its appearance [in I757]> the

names of the baptized children were generally taken care of and

After the Rev. J. Theobald Faber had died unexpectedly on November 
2, 1788, and the congregation had been without a pastor for more than a

istry here, in the name of God, in these congregations, in the beginning 
of the month of December, 1789, and baptized the following children:

CHURCH RECORD OF THE GREAT SWAMP 

REFORMED CONGREGATION, LOWER 

MILFORD TOWNSHIP, LEHIGH 

CO., PA., 1 736-1 833. 

Translated by Prof. Wm. J. Hinke, Ph.D. 

Church Record 

of the Christian Congregation at 

Great Swamp, 

In which are recorded: First, the articles of the Christian Church Order, 
which this Congregation (together with others in this land) has adopted. 
Secondly, the names of the children that have been baptized, their parents 
and their sponsors. 

The beginning was made in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ, 1736, 

the 24th of April. 
Joh. Henricus Goetschius, 
V. D. M. Helvetico-Tigurinus. 

Memorandum of the Articles of the Church Order. 

I. Four elders, honorable men, who have a good report among their 
neighbors, shall be named by the minister and be elected by the majority 
of the voters. Each shall remain in office for two years. 

The Duty of the Elders shall be: 

a. To exercise good oversight over the members of the congregation and 
to make known everything disorderly, (i) to the minister alone; (2) to 
the minister and the other elders; (3) to the whole congregation, if the 
first and second admonition had no effect, in order that those who give 
public offense may not be tolerated in the congregation of God. 

437 



43^ The Pennsylvania-German Society. 

b. The youngest of them shall take up the collection for one year, the 
next to the youngest the following year, at every divine service. One of 
them shall collect the amount and keep it faithfully until the time of 
accounting, which shall take place every half year before the whole con- 
gregation. 

Expenditure of the Alms. 

The collections or alms shall be expended as follows: 

a. They shall be applied to needy persons who may be in or outside of 
the congregation. 

b. To the church or schoolhouse, if there is anything to improve or to 
build. 

c. For bread and wine at the communion service, 

Or whatever else may be found to be a necessary expenditure in the 
judgment of the Christian congregation. 

The Second Article, regarding the Congregation: 

1. Every one who confesses the Evangelical Reformed religion and 
wishes to belong to this congregation shall make a solemn vow before God 
and men, and faithfully promise by the signature of his own name, that 
he and his household will be obedient to every divine ordinance. Other- 
wise he shall not be regarded as a Christian member, but shall be ex- 
cluded from all gifts and privileges which the members of this congrega- 
tion enjoy. 

2. Each one shall contribute every year, according to his pleasure and 
ability, whatever will be necessary for the maintenance of the divine 
worship. 

3. Should any member or those of his family lead offensive lives and 
will not show amendment of life through the preaching of God's Word 
or private admonition, he can expect exclusion from the Lord's Supper and 
even from the congregation.
