John Hench 

The history of the Hench family was read by Rev. 
Silas M. Hench at the reunion held Aug. 14, 1902. 

Brothers, kindred, friends, descendants of noble 
sires, we greet you ; we greet one another with open 
hands for friendly grasp and hearts full to overflow- 
ing with glad and grateful thoughts. 

From far and near we have gathered here amid the 
hills and vales we love so well, because here are our 
homes, or here they have been; because among them 
have been the places of our birth and the scenes of 
our childhood and youth ; and more, we love them be- 
cause of the priceless inheritance left us here by our 
forefathers not simply in these goodly hills and fruit- 
ful valleys, but inestimably richer in the blessings of 
civil and religious liberty which we enjoy, and in the 
physical, intellectual, and moral powers purchased by 
their toil and sacrifices, their sufferings and blood, and 
bequeathed to us. 

A century or more ago, following the star of em- 
pire, moving westward, they came from the eastern 
part of this state, into this, then an almost trackless 
wilderness. And what a century among the centuries 
it has been for us, for this land, and for the world, 
the best of all the centuries ! 

Looking back over it from this vantage ground and 
marking the marvelous changes, we feel to-day that 
could their eyes see what our €yes behold, and their 
hearts know and feel what our hearts have known and 
realized, they would be filled with a great wonder and 

4 Records of the Annual 

astonishment. They never fancied nor ever dreamed 
that it might or could be thus. And to us who gladly 
honor them for what they were, what they achieved 
and endured, could they speak they would doubtless 
say: "Not unto us, not unto us, but unto Him whose 
we are, in whom we have trusted, our Guide, our 
Helper, and our Shield, give all the honor and glory." 

A half century or more before their pilgrimage from 
that first settlement in the new world to the next here, 
their ancestor and ours, with thousands of others, fled 
from tyranny and religious persecutions in their 
fatherland beyond the Rhine. 

They loved their home, their native land, their kin- 
dred and friends, but for sake of God and their pos- 
terity, and for faith or creed, and simple liberty to 
pray they would forsake home and fatherland and 
seek a wilderness. They were : 

"Men who for the simple sake of God 
All titles, riches would refuse; 
And in their stead disgrace and shame 
And bitter poverty would choose." 

"And these were they who gave us birth, 
The Pilgrims of the sunset wave; 
Who won for us this virgin earth 
And freedom with the soil they gave." 

More than two centuries ago the Palatinate along 
the Rhine and border provinces had repeatedly been 
ravaged by cruel and merciless war. Their cities, 
towns, and villages were burned, their property con- 
fiscated or destroyed, their crops and vineyards trod- 
den down, and their churches and schools ruined. 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion 5 

Finding no rest, no peace, nor security in their own 
land many thousands of them fled down the Rhine 
and found refuge in Holland, and other thousands in 
England for a time. In England many found a sym- 
pathetic friend in William Penn, whose mother had 
been of the Reformed faith, and he invited many of 
them to come to America. 

Queen Anne, of England, also invited them, and 
even bore the expense of transportation for many of 
them to come to the Colonies. 

During the first half of the eighteenth century many 
thousands of these Germans came over to seek homes 
here. Among these German emigrants was Johonnis 
Hench, or Hauge, a blacksmith by trade, from Wur- 
temburg, who landed at Philadelphia on the ship 
Lydia, Sept. 20, 1743. After a time he returned to 
Wurtemburg, doubtless to seek a helpmeet, if he had 
not already found one for whom he returned, make 
h-er his own, and bring her with him to share his hopes 
and fears, his joys and sorrows, and help him make 
a home in the new world. Thus far no record has 
been found of his wife's name, nor the date of their 
marriage, nor the date of their birth. However, ac- 
cording to his age at time of his death, he was born 
about the year 1712. He returned to America, land- 
ing in Philadelphia Sept. 2, 1749, on the ship Chester- 
field. He settled in Vincent Township, Chester 
County, but ere long removed to Pikeland Township, 
of same county, where about 1753, he bought land. 
His name appears on the list of Chester County tax- 
ables from 1756 to 1778, and later, as follows:

ings, 45 acres woodland, 

5 sheep, I servant man and blacksmith. 
In 1770 he bought the farm of John Millhouse, ad- 
joining that of Johannis Hartman, in Pikeland, and 
carried on farming and blacksmithing. 
In 1774 the tax list has this record: 
John Hanch, Pikeland, 286 acres and buildings, 4 
horses, 6 cattle, 4 sheep. 
1778 — John Hench, Pikeland, 220 acres and buildings, 

3 horses, 5 cattle, 6 sheep.

Jacob Hench, 75 acres of land, i horse, i cow. 
George Hench, 75 acres of land, 2 horses, 2 

All this tells plainly of years of untiring energy, 
perseverance, and thrift on the part of pioneer John 
Hench and his family. Starting out with only his 
trade, his vigorous, physical constitution, and fixed 
purpose to succeed, he goes into the forest, with no 
roads except at great distances, and only bridle-paths. 
Felling the trees and hewing the logs with his ax, they 
build their primitive dwelling. It consists of kitchen 
and bedroom on first floor, and over the next is the 
garret for the children. The joists are hewn timbers, 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion 7 

open with floor over. The partitions are of wood. 
There are no plastered walls. There was the large, 
open fire-place, with crane, andirons and long-handled 
skillet to shield the cook from the heat. The doors 
swing on wooden hinges and are fastened by wooden 
latch, the string of which hangs on the outside. Hence 
the old saying, "The latch-string hangs outside." 

Window glass, then an article of import, was scarce 
and expensive, and instead they used heavy oiled paper. 
Even as late as eighteen hundred, when St. Peters' 
church, in Pikeland, was rebuilt, some panes of glass 
that were left over were loaned to certain parties. 
Salt was the concomitant, spices were luxuries. Sugar 
was not an article of everyday use. A small amount 
was kept on hand for company that might come. As 
soon as the bees could be cultivated honey became the 
great sweetener. Then the delicious buckwheat cake 
and honey were favorite dishes. Parched rye took 
the place of coffee. But with all these drawbacks the 
emigrants reared strong, healthy, robust families. Our 
stamina and vigor came from them and their depriva- 
tion of luxuries and comforts. 

To John Hench and his wife were born eight chil- 
dren — five sons and three daughters. The sons were 
named Peter, Henry, John, Jacob, and George ; the 
daughters, Alaria Elizabeth, Christina, Betsy or Eliza- 
beth. All lived to grow up to manhood and woman- 

In the noble spirit of patriotism this family was not 
wanting. Love and devotion to country burned in 
their bosoms, and at its call to defense they responded 
even to the sacrifice of property and of life itself. Two 

8 Records of the x\nnual 

sons, Peter, a fifer and drummer, and Henry, enlisted 
on a war vessel in the war of the Revolution, in 1774. 
They were afterward captured and died of neglect and 
starvation on a prison ship at New York, and were 
buried under a mound in Trinity church yard. New 
York. Their names, or at least that of Peter, is found 
in the Penna. Archives. 

The third son, John, then enlisted in 1777 and was 
made Second Lieutenant, Fourth Batallion Penna. Con- 
tinental Line, under Major Peter Hartman, a kinsman. 
His name also appears in the Penna. Archives. Not 
only in the field, but also at home, they rendered val- 
uable service to the cause of freedom, by furnishing 
cattle to the army; and Mrs. Hench rendered what 
service she could to the sick and wounded soldiers in 
the hospital at Yellow Springs, which was not far 
from their home. Some incidents worthy of note on 
this line are recorded by Dr. William D. Hartman, 
great-grandson of Mrs. Hench. After the battle of 
Brandywine a portion of General Wayne's division re- 
treated across the valley hill and encamped in the eve- 
ning in the meadow on John Hench's farm. Mr. 
Hench, who was a strong Whig, told the soldiers they 
were welcome to take whatever they wanted. As soon 
as their tents were pitched, and their camp-fires were 
lighted from the fences in the vicinity, forty head of 
fat bullocks were driven into the barnyard and the 
slaughtering continued until a sufficient number were 
secured to supply their wants. So soon as the skin 
was taken off a slaughtered animal many of the sol- 
diers who were shoeless, and their feet sore and bleed- 
ing, gathered around and placing their feet on the 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion 9 

flesh-side of the skin and doubling it around their foot 
in the form of a shoe, secured it with thongs cut from 
the same. 

A large peach orchard adjoining the camp was 
stripped of its fruit, and the next morning every sol- 
dier had a knapsack full of peaches. During that 
whole night Mrs. Hench was occupied at her dough- 
tray kneading and making bread for the officers. 

The next morning, observing some commotion 
among the officers about the house, she found upon 
inquiry that two wounded officers who occupied sep- 
arate beds in one of the rooms were about to fight a 
duel sitting up in their beds, and their waiters were 
down stairs cleaning and loading their pistols for the 
fray. She soon settled the quarrel by taking the pis- 
tols from the waiters, and going to the officers' room 
gave them a lecture, ending with the declaration that 
she would not permit such conduct in her house. The 
quarrel arose from a dispute in reference to the battle 
of Brandywine a few days previous. Before they left 
she succeeded in restoring friendship between them. 
But in this brave and patriotic w-ife's and mother's 
devotion to country, through her ministries to the sick 
and wounded soldiers in the hospital, erected by Wash- 
ington at Yellow Springs, she and also her neighbor 
and kinswoman, Abigail Rice, wife of Zachary Rice, 
both contracted typhus fever, from which they after- 
ward died. 

Another feature or character in the life and makeup 
of these German emigrants, and one which we do well 
to cherish in memory and emulate, as indeed the most 
essential feature, was the strength and cultivation of 

lo Records of the Annual 

their moral and spiritual natures. Physical vigor and 
energy they had to a marked degree, and intellectual 
vigor, but either of these alone, or even combined, will 
not produce a strong, well-rounded character without 
the moral and spiritual stream. What the rudder is 
to the ship to guide it and the ballast to steady it in 
the storm, these the moral and spiritual forces cul- 
tured and developed, are to human life and character 
moving amid the stress and storm of life, upward to 
the port of peace. 

Those emigrants brought with them from the father- 
land their Bibles and hymn books, their catechisms 
and devotional books, and their respect for and devo- 
tion to God and truth, the Church and home, the 
school and country. Wherever and as soon as it was 
possible they had their church home and their German 
pastor, and German schoolmaster. The latter taught 
their children in the German language to read, write, 
etc., and when the church was without a pastor, as 
was many of them, or but few churches, the school- 
master took the place of the minister in the religious 
training of the young. 

St. Vincent German Reformed church was the old 
mother church in Chester County. Here our ancestor, 
John Hench, and his family, attended church, and 
doubtless later on perhaps to some extent at St. Peter's 
church at Pikeland. But the records of St. Vincent 
church contain the confirmations of nearly all his chil- 
dren, six of them, with dates of their confirmation 
from 1776 to 1778, and the ages of each at the time of 
the confirmation. 

Also the records of the baptisms of several of his 

Hexch and Dromgold Reunion ii 

grandchildren. From our kinsman, Mr. John M. Hart- 
man, of Mt. Airy, Philadelphia, who has done so much 
and spared no pains and expense in gathering the rec- 
ords and employing the data for the history of the 
ancestry of our kindred families, we quote the follow- 

From this old mother church went forth a numer- 
ous family to build up our country and leave their im- 
press for good on the communities in which they set- 
tled. Many of them migrated to Perry County. On 
the old church books appear the names of Henche, 
Shull, Hippie, Yeager, Acker, Laubach, Naylor, Foose, 
Reiss, Hartman, Shimer, Christman, Wagner, Miller, 
Stiteler, Olewein, Hass, Kepner, etc. These names 
are still to be found in Perry County. The first John 
Henche was called a Presbyterian, but it comes from 
the original name of Vincent church the title of which 
in Halle, Germany, was Presbyterian. The original 
communion set of St. Vincent was of German silver 
or pewter, and inscribed : "From the Church in Halle 
to the Presbyterian Church in Schuylkill." 

The Hench family lived prosperously and happily 
in Chester County, until the spring of 1789, when their 
land was seized by the foreclosure of an old English 
mortgage. John Hench, with 113 other farmers lost 
his property. In the succession of owners, from Wil- 
liam Penn down, Pikeland Township was finally held 
by Samuel Hoare, a wealthy merchant of London. 
Hoare sold Pikeland tract to Andrew Allen, a mer- 
chant of Philadelphia. Allen paid Hoare a small part 
of the contract price and gave him a mortgage for 
the balance. Allen then divided the tract into farms 

12 Records of the An'nual 

of two hundred and three hundred acres, and sold 
them to the German emigrants as they arrived, and 
pocketed the money. Being a man of prominence, and 
a member of the Continental Congress, there was no 
suspicion of any fraudulent action on his part. After 
the Revolution was on and Lord Howe had captured 
Trenton, Allen turned traitor, went to Trenton and 
threw himself upon Lord Howe for protection. Later 
he went to London and died. These German emi- 
grants, relying upon Allen's honesty, accepted the 
papers he gave them when they paid the money and 
made no back searches for titles. 

After the Revolution was over and civil courts were 
established in Chester County, Ezekiel Howard, the 
sheriff, was given writs to sell out all the Pikeland 
tract under foreclosure of the Hoare-Allen mortgage, 
dated August 26, 1789. Every farm was sold and 
even St. Peter's church, built by the emigrants, went 
to satisfy the greed of the Merchant Hoare. This 
caused widespread disaster, as many of the farmers 
were now left without property, and must begin over 
again to secure homes. John Hench being unable to 
redeem his property, it was bought by Nicholas Ickes, 
who soon afterward took possession thereof. 

Thus for one who had toiled so many years, and 
met other sad losses, the death of two sons in the 
Revolutionary War, and then that of his faithful wife, 
now at nearly four score years to see the fruits of all 
his toil so quickly and unexpectedly taken away, must 
have been a heavy stroke. But with other children 
strong and brave and true still about him, and grand- 
children rising up to give cheer and promise of com- 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion 13 

fort, we find that he still gave his strength and thought 
to the duties and affairs of practical life. 

Among others who lost their farms was Zachary 
Rice, neighbor of John Hench, and ancestor of the 
Rice family. He is well known to all from the well- 
prepared history of the family given here on a former 
similar occasion. Zachary was the father of twenty- 
one children, seventeen of whom remained to him 
after the death of his wife Abigail. His descendants 
to-day are a numerous host. He. with his children, 
then set out in search of cheaper land. Three of his 
children, one son and two daughters, had married two 
sons and one daughter of John Hench. Zachary Rice 
and children proceeded westward till they found a 
suitable place in :Milford Township, Mifflin County, 
later Juniata County. There he bought a tract of land 
and settled on it in 1790. About that time or soon 
after his sons-in-law, John and Jacob Hench, also set- 
tled, the one in the same county, and the other in what 
became the county of Perry. After a few more years 
the aged patriarch, their father, followed these chil- 
dren, with his two other daughters, and settled in Mil- 
ford Township, Juniata County, about 1800 or 1801. 
He was 90 years old or over at that time. His son 
John, who married Margaret Rice, was a blacksmith, 
and in the pursuit of his trade, carried his anvil and 
tools on his back from place to place in the sparse 
settlements where he worked for the early settlers. 
He died in November, 1800, aged fifty years, and was 
buried at Loysville, Perry County. 

The will of Emigrant John Hench, a copy of which 
we have here to-day, was made June 28, 1801. This 

14 Records of the Annual 

was but a short while before the testator's death, as 
the will was probated December 9, 1801. He was 
buried at Academia, Juniata County, Pa. The legatees 
named in the will were his surviving children, the 
widow of his deceased son John, and children and 
grandson John, of his son John. 

The nobility of spirit, the paternal devotion to his 
children, and his simple trust in God remained with 
him to the end of life. Well may we honor his mem- 
ory and emulate his virtues. We should like to-day to 
trace out for you the branches of the family tree, but 
time forbids this. We may give here to the third and 
fourth generation the names, especially that bring 
down the original family name of Hench ; the more 
complete record or history will, we trust, be given you 
later in a permanent form, when time permits us to 
accomplish this. 

Those noble ancestors have done well their work, 
and they call us to follow on and rise to the eminence 
they foreshadowed and which the privileges we enjoy 
and the time we live in demand of us. 

" 'Neath hoary moss on crumbling stones 
Their names are fading day by day, 
The fashion of their lives and speech 
From sight and sound have passed away. 

"We owe them all we have of good, 
Our sunny skies, our fertile fields. 
Our freedom which to all oppressed, 
A continent of refuge yields."

to have been performed by Peter Hench. Henry 
Hench was known between Perry County and Balti- 
more as "Whip cracker Harry," because of his skill 
in cracking his long blacksnake whip. Among these 
families there have been successful merchants, manu- 
facturers, mechanics, and artisans of various kinds. 
Some of them have adorned the profession of law, 
teaching, and the ministry. Useful machinery has 
given the stamp of inventive genius to the name, and 
the manufactures whose names stand at the beginning 
of this reunion title, to whose thought and effort we 

i8 Records of the Annual 

owe its origin and much of its success, have done much 
to carry the name to the bounds of our country and to 
foreign lands.

Hench an'd Dromgold Reunion 23 


Nicholas Ickes 

Information secured by John M. Hartman and J. 
W. Rice, from the Ickes families, and read by Vernon 
Rice at the reunion held on Aug. 13, 1903. 


About the beginning of the seventeenth century, 
under the guidance of William Penn, a colony of Ger- 
mans consisting of 3,000 persons from the kingdom 
of Upper Saxony, under the control of Frederick the 
Wise, came to Pennsylvania. The reason of the emi- 
gration of the colony was on account of persecution 
by the Catholics. The colony came from Eisleben, 
near where Martin Luther was born. The Catholics 
and Protestants were at war. William Penn came 
there to get farmers, and as thes-e people were tired 
of war they concluded to come to America. There 
was a family who came with the colony by the 
name of Coblents. (Michael Ickes was married to one 
of his daughters.) Peter the Great confiscated his 
property and he decided to come to America. He set- 
tled at Albany, N. Y., where some of his descendants 
still live. From there they came to Montgomery 
County, Pennsylvania, and went by the name of Cope- 
land. The Baron lived to be 112 years. 

In that colony there was an Ickes, who had four 
sons and three daughters ; none of the children were 
married when they came to this county. The colony 
was located in Montgomery County, north of the 

24 Records of the Annual 

Schuylkill River, and west and northwest of the 
Perkiomen Creek. The township was called Limerick, 
and the one joining was called Frederick. Mr. Ickes 
located i,ooo acres of land and divided it between his 
four sons. Mr. Ickes built a house on the land in 
1717, which in 1880 was still standing. Michael Ickes, 
the father of Nicholas Ickes, received the northwest 
corner as his share, and built a house on it, where 
Nicholas Ickes was born; also four of his children, 
Elizabeth, Samuel, Susan, and Jonas. Of the four 
brothers who came with that colony John was the 
eldest, Peter the second, George the third, and Michael 
the fourth. All the brothers left there except Michael. 
John and Peter settled in Adams County, one at Lit- 
tlestown and the other at Abbottstown. George settled 
in Bedford County, north of Bedford, and Michael re- 
mained in Montgomery County until his death. He 
was drowned in the Schuylkill River, at which time 
Nicholas came into his possessions. There were five 
children, Nicholas, Samuel, Michael, and two girls. 
The law at that time gave the eldest more than the 
rest : Nicholas received two hundred pounds, which 
would be five hundred and thirty dollars in our money, 
and the others received one hundred pounds. Nicholas 
took the farm at the appraisement and paid the heirs 
their share out of it ; the widow's dower remained in 
the place. Nicholas was married to Mary Magdalen^ 
Christman, of Montgomery County, 1785. He wen,' 
into the war as a substitute (when he was sixteen year 
old), for George Evans, and remained until peace wa 
declared. Nicholas Ickes left Montgomery County in 
1795 and settled in Cumberland County, in Sherman's 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion' 25 

\'alley. After a lapse cf twenty-five years, on March 
20, 1820, Perry County was taken off Cumberland 
County. Nicholas bought 230 acres of land from Rob- 
ert Robinson, now in Perry County. He also bought 
260 acres of mountain land from Dr. ISIaley, and sold 
130 acres to Charles Elliot. He also bought 170 acres 
from George Sanderson, on part of which Ickesburg 
was located in 1816, on which he lived, and where he 
died March 25, 1S48, aged 84 years. 

Thus far we go by traditions. The earliest authentic 
record we have is a John Jacob Ick, who arrived from 
\\'urtemburg, Germany, Sept. 22,, 1741, at Philadelphia, 
on ship Marlborough, and was born in 1718. During 
September, 1745. Anna Barbara Ickes married Abra- 
ham Marley, of Skippack ; this was one of the first 
marriages on record on the books of the Trappe Lu- 
theran church. Anna Barbara was born Aug. 7, 1721, 
and was a sister of Nicholas (i) Ickes. On the loth 
of December, 1745, Nicholas (i) Ickes bought of 
Mary Hilliard, Rebecca Steel, William Sheet, and 
Elizabeth, his wife, Richard Renshaw, and Anna, his 
wife, and James Thompson, 228 acres with appurte- 
nances in Limerick Township, Philadelphia, Pa., re- 
corded in Deed Book G, Vol. 8, page jt,. the said 
Limerick Township being now in Montgomery County. 
Nicholas (i) and Anna Clara, his wife, sold part of 
the 228 acres, comprising fifty-five acres, to Albert 
Fontertine, on May 6, 1749. Nicholas (i) and Anna 
Clara, his wife, bought of Lynford Gardner, 105 acres 
in Limerick Township, Dec. 29, 1756. Nicholas (i) 
Ickes contributed five shillings towards the purchase 
of a bell for the Swamp or New Hanover Lutheran 

2,^ Records of the Annual 

church in 1748. Nicholas (i) Ickes' son Michael was 
confirmed at the age of 17, on April 17, 1756. At the 
same time Nicholas' (i) son John was confirmed at 
the age of 16 years. This shows they were born in 
1739 and 1740, respectively. Nicholas (i), by will 
dated July i, 1763, left certain bequests, but destroyed 
the will and wrote another as follows : 

In the Name oe God, Amen. 

This eigth day of July, in the year of our Lord, one 
thousand seven hundred and sixty-five. I, Nicholas 
Ickes, of Limerick Township, in Philadelphia County, 
and Province of Pennsylvania, Freeholder, being sick 
and weak in body, but of perfect memory and under- 
standing, thanks be unto God therefore, calling unto 
mind the mortality of my body, knowing that it is 
appointed for all men once to die, do make this my 
last will and testament, renouncing all others formerly 
made and done by me heretofore, and that in manner 
and form following, that is to say — 

First. My will is, that all my just debts and funeral 
charges be paid by my executors hereinafter named 
and appointed. 

Secondly. Whereas I have sometime ago made ?. 
certain article with my two sons, namely, Michael and 
John, concerning my two plantations, what every one 
was to give me, and my wife, their mother, yearly, as 
long as we both lived. Therefore my will is that my 
two sons aforesaid shall pay unto their mother, Anna 
Clara, my beloved wife, five pounds apiece, money of 
this Province, yearly, as long as she lives, and that to 
begin after my decease, instead of that, what they was 


Hench and Dromgold Reunion 27 

to deliver us in the article. Further, shall my beloved 
wife, Anna Clara, have the use and profit of my per- 
sonal estate as long as she lives, let it be in ready 
money, bonds, bills, book-accounts, whatsoever be- 
longeth to me, and after my wife's decease my personal 
estate, what is left, shall be equal distributed among 
all my children. Further I give and bequeath unto 
my beloved wife over and above the aforesaid ten 
pounds a year, her mare saddle and bridle, her bed and 
bedstead, her clothes-press, one good cow, and Michael, 
my son, is to pasture and fodder her mare and cow 
summer and winter as his own, and my walnut table ■ 
and also is she to have her free seat and peaceable 
abode in my little stone house, as long as she lives. 

Thirdly. I give and devise unto my eldest son 
Michael, my plantation whereon I lived, containing one 
hundred and seventy-three acres of land, with all 
rights, titles and appurtenances, thereunto belonging 
and I empower my beloved wife to make him a good 
title out of my title to him the said Michael, his heirs 
and assigns, forever. And further is he to have over 
and above the aforesaid plantation, four acres of my 
other plantation, where my spring-house is, so that the 
spring is within the four acres of land, to him and his 
heirs and assigns, forever, and my son John shall make 
him a title out of his title, after my decease, for keep- 
ing his mother's creatures and attending her in her age. 

Fourthly. I give and devise unto my youngest 
son John, my other plantation, containing, after the 
four acres deducted, one hundred and seventy-six acres 
of land, with all rights, titles and appurtenances there- 
unto belonging, and I empower my beloved wife to 

28 Records of the Annual 

make him a good title out of my titles, to him the said 
John, his heirs and assigns forever. 

Fifthly. Whereas my daughter Anna Maria has al- 
ready received the sum of one hundred pounds, yet 
my two sons, Michael and John, shall pay her the fur- 
ther sum of one hundred pounds, Pennsylva. currency, 
in two years time after my decease. 

Lastly. I make and ordain this my beloved wife, 
and my eldest son Michael, to be my only and sole 
executors of this my last will and testament ratifying 
this present, and no other, to be my last will and tes- 

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand 
the seal, the day and year first above written. 
Signed, sealed, published and declared by the said 
testator for and as his last will and test. In 
the presence of us.

Philada., August 5th, 1765, then personally appeared 
Michael Walter and Adam Curtz, the witnesses to the 
foregoing will, and on oath did declare they saw and 
heard, Nicholas Ickes, the testator, therein named, 
sign, seal, publish and declare the same will for and 
as his last will and testament, and that at the doing 
thereof he was of sound mind, memory and under- 
standing to the best of their knowledge.

Aug. 2, 1755. 

The inventory of the estate shows Nicholas to have 
been a money lender as follows : Two bonds of 
Michael Ickes; one bond of John Ickes ; one bond of 
Peter Milford; one bond of Adam Brandt; book ac- 
count Abraham Stattler ; book account John Ickes ; 
book account Michael Ickes; book account James 

By this will we see Nicholas (i) had only three chil- 
dren, Michael, John, and Anna Maria. Michael, the 
oldest, was left 173 acres of his farm and Nicholas 
(i) gives his wife full power to make a good title to 
her son Michael. This will was probated Aug. 5, 1765. 
The records of the Swamp or Hanover church, now 
in Montgomery County, show Nicholas (i) was buried 
July, 1765, aged 51 years, which makes his birth in 

In 1744 Catherine Ickes, an orphan child, was con- 
firmed at Hanover church. As the Lutheran Church 
confirmed children about fourteen years of age, she 
was born about 1730, and could not have been a child 
of Nicholas (i). 

John Jacob Ick arrived from Wurtemberg at Phila- 
delphia on ship Marlborough, Sept. 23. 1741, and was 
born about 171S. We have here Nicholas (i), born in 
1714; John Jacob, born in 1718; Anna Barbara Ickes, 
born in 1721, and Catherine, born about 1730. This 
shows there existed an Ickes family older than Nich- 
olas (i) and these were probably the children of that 
family. This would account for what Susan Harding 
says : "In that colony there was an Ickes who had four 

30 Records of the Annual 

sons and three daughters." Susan Harding gives the 
names of the sons, John, Peter, George, and ^Michael. 
The latter name, Michael, is an error ; it should be 
Nicholas (i), as the will shows that Michael (2) was 
a son of Nicholas (i). This has been a mere trans- 
position of names. John (3) Ickes and his wife, 
Christina, sold to Jacob Barnhard part of his tract, 
comprising sixty-five acres, in Limerick Township, on 
May 17, 1757. This Jacob Barnhard arrived on the 
same ship with John Jacob Ick in 1741. There was 
probably a family connection here. 

Michael (2) Ickes, confirmed April 12, 1756, mar- 
ried first Elizabeth Coblentz, or Koblin, daughter of 
John Koblin. She was buried Nov. 26, 1768, aged 
21 years, 5 months, 2 weeks, and 6 days. There is no 
record of children born to them. Michael (2) Ickes 
married 2d Catharine Acker, Nov. 14, 1769. Their 
children were Nicholas (3), Samuel (3), Michael (3), 
and two girls. The Hanover church records show : 

" Ickes, child of Michael and Catherine Acker 

Ickes, was born , baptized April 14, 1773. 

Sponsors, Daniel Mertz and wife. John, son of Michael 
and Catherine Ickes, born Dec. 7, 1775, baptized April 
7, 1776. Sponsors, John and Margaret Miller. Michael 
(2) was deacon of the congregation — New Hanover 
church, and was drowned in the Schuylkill River, and 
buried May 16, 1778, aged 37 years. Michael appears 
in the tax list of 1776 for 150 acres, two horses and 
three cows. Nicholas Coblentz arrived in Philadelphia 
Oct. 7, 1743, and was said to have been born in Ger- 
many in 1698. Jacob Coblentz, by will dated April 5, 
1785, gave to his three relatives, Peter, David, and 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion 31 

Philip Coblentz, his property in Cheltenham Township, 
Montgomery County, and reserves certain moneys for 
the Presbyterian church, St. Michael's Lutheran 
church, Gemiantown, and a school near James Me- 
hannon's. From some of these Coblentzs Michael (2) 
got his first wife. The Coblentzs are mentioned in 
Susan Harding's book and her narrative is founded on 
some facts which this proves. 

John Jacob Ickes being of the same generation of 
our Nicholas Ickes, it is apparent he went back to 
Germany on a visit, as was the custom in those days 
among the thrifty, well-to-do people, of which the 
Ickeses were an example. On his return he brought 
back Jacob Barnhard, who bought the property of 
John and Christina Ickes in 1757. 

Anna Barbara Ickes, wife of Abraham Markley, had 
the following children: Isaac, married Jane Lane; 
Elizabeth, married Matthias Tyson; Abraham, mar- 
ried Mary Magdalene Crasser; Benjamin, married 
Hannah Wentz ; Jacob, married Christina Antes; 

Marie Barbara, married Warthman; John, 

married Elizabeth Heiser; David (single), Samuel 
(single). Abraham migrated to South Carolina, near 
Charleston. His children were all girls. They inter- 
married in the Lee family, and one of the descendants 
built the fortification around Charleston during the 
Civil War. Benjamin was a member of legislature 
and judge of Montgomery County. His daughter, 
Sarah, married Gen. Philip Boyer, and their son, Ben- 
jamin Markley Boyer, was president judge of Mont- 
gomery County. 

Nicholas (3), born 1764, confirmed xA.pril 20, 1783, 

32 Records of the Annual 

by Rev. Christian Streit, married Mary Magdalene 
Christman, of Montgomery County, in 1785. Eliza- 
beth Ickes, daughter of Nicholas and Magdalene Ickes, 
born Oct. 5, 1787, baptized Dec. 12, 1789. Sponsor, 
Grandparents Jacob and Elizabeth Christman. 

Samuel Ickes (4), born March 29, 1789, baptized 
Dec. 12, 1789. Sponsor, Samuel Ickes. Susanna (4), 
born Feb. 11, 1791, died young. Jonas (4), born Feb. 
3, 1790. Catherine (4), born Dec. 31, 1795. Nicholas 
(4), born , died in 1797. 

Michael's (2) family appear to have lived on the 
old estate until the death of Michael (2), when his 
son Nicholas (3) applied to the court for a division 
of the estate. He got title to the property, paying off 
the other heirs 608 pounds, Pennsylvania currency. 

On April 5, 1790, Nicholas (3) and Magdalene, his 
wife, sold his farm of 228 acres, to John Hendricks, 
of Limerick. The following speaks for itself: 

Received April 8th, 1791, of Nicholas Ickes, the sum 
of One Hundred and Sixty-one Pounds, Ten Shil- 
lings and Fifteen Pence, towards the first payment 
of the Plantation, I sold him in Pikeland Town- 
ship, which I promise to pay to the attorneys of 
Sam'l Hore to obtain an article of agreement be- 
tween them and me, which agreement I am to 
assign to said Ickes when delivered to him with 
said attorney's receipt for said money he is to de- 
liver me this receipt. John Hange. 

In the succession of owners from William Penn 
down, Pikeland Township was finally held by Samuel 
Hoare, a rich London merchant. Hoare sold the Pike- 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion 33 

land tract to Andrew Allen, a Philadelphia marchant, 
who paid Hoare a small sum on account of the tract 
and gave him a mortgage for the balance. Allen then 
divided the tract into two and three hundred acre 
farms and sold it to the German emigrants as they ar- 
rived, pocketing the money. Being a prominent man 
and a member of the Continental Congress, he was un- 
suspected of such fraudulent actions. After the Revo- 
lution was on and Lord Howe had captured Trenton, 
Allen turned traitor, went to Trenton and threw him- 
self upon Lord Howe for protection. Later he went 
to London, where he died. These German emigrants, 
trusting to Allen's honesty, accepted the papers, which 
he gave them when they paid the money and made no 
back searches for titles. After the Revolution was over 
and civil courts were established in Chester County, 
Ezekiel Howard, the sheriff was given writs to sell out 
all the Pikeland tract under foreclosure of the Hoare- 
Allen mortgage, dated Aug. 26, 1789. Every farm 
was sold and even the St. Peter's church, which the 
emigrants had built, was sold to satisfy the greed of 
this rich English merchant Hoare. This caused wide- 
spread disaster, as many of the farmers not being able 
to redeem their property, were left without a farm or 
home. In a power of attorney dated 30 April, 1791, 
given by these emigrants to their attorney to settle 
and make good title for their property, the names of 
John Hench and Nicholas Ickes appear in connection 
with the above farm. 

After John Hench sold his farm, he with his two 
daughters, Christina Sherriden and Catharine Close, 
removed to Cumberland County, in what is now Juni- 

34 Records of the Annual 

ata County, purchased a farm and started life over, al- 
though he was an old man. He is the progenitor of 
all the Henches of Juniata, Perry, and other counties, 
who have intermarried with the Ickes, Rices, Hart- 
mans, and other families of our reunion. 

John Hench's son George had a son Peter who mar- 
ried Elizabeth Ickes, daughter of Nicholas (3).

December 10, 1771, Peter Ickes to Dorothea Hebner. 

The church home of all the Ickeses was the New Han- 
over or Swamp church. This grand old church is sit- 
uated in Falkner's Swamp, or properly speaking, Falk- 
ner's meadows, and stands on a knoll in the midst of 
one of our most fertile valleys. It is seven miles from 
Pottstown, Pa., in New Hanover Township, Mont- 
gomery County, Pa. It is the oldest German Lutheran 
church in America and was founded by the Rev. Jus- 
tus Falkner, 1703. When Father Muhlenberg ar- 
rived in Philadelphia, Nov. 25, 1742, he went and 
preached in their log church November 28th, from 
2 Corinthians, v. 20, "Now then we are ambassadors 
for Christ ; as though God did beseech you by us : we 
pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God." 
This church antedates the Trappe church about thirty- 
nine years. Next November the one hundred and 
fiftieth anniversary of this building will be celebrated. 
It is built of trap granite with brownstone facings. 
The walls are three feet thick ; the window frames are 
all stone ; no wood was used except in the sash. The 
building is large and surmounted with a steeple. The 
interior has a gallery on the sides and end where a 
large organ stands. The windows have stained glass. 
The ceiling is high and curved from side to side. It is 
a typical German church of 200 years ago and must

be seen to be appreciated. Every Ickes who can af- 
ford it should pay a visit to this beautiful old church 
which their forefathers helped to build and left io8 
years ago when they migrated to a new land. During 
the Revolution it was used as a hospital after the bat- 
tle of Germantown, and was ten miles from the homes 
of the Ickeses. How many of us to-day would ride 
ten miles horseback on a bridle-path through the for- 
est to attend church ? 

Nicholas 3d sold the farm in Pikeland and moved 
to Sherman's Valley, Tyrone Township, then Cumber- 
land, now Perry County, Pa., where he purchased 260

Nicholas 3d was an old Revolutionary soldier, having 
fought all through that war. His name does not ap- 
pear on the public records and his descendants should 
establish his identity that they may become sons and 
daughters of the Revolution. He died March 25, 1848, 
aged 84 years, and is buried at Buffalo church, Saville. 
His brother Samuel was a soldier of the Revolution.

John Hartman 

This geneology was prepared by John M. Hartman, 
of Mt. Airy, Pa., and J. \\. Rice, and read by Rev. J. 
W. Meminger, at the reunion held Aug. lo, 1905. 

In August, 1750, the ship. Royal Union, Clement 
Nicholson, commander, arrived at the port of Phila- 
delphia, from Rotterdam, on which were seven emi- 
grants, namely : Johannas Hartman, his wife, Mar- 
garet Hartman, son Peter Hartman, second son, Jacob 
Hartman, daughters, Marie Apolonia, Elizabeth, and 

On the 15th of August, Johannas took the oath of 
allegiance to King George, of Great Britain. 

They remained in Philadelphia a short time, and in 
1753 moved to Pikeland, Chester County, Pa., where 
Johannas had taken up a tract of land under the Penn 

Jacob, the subject of this paper, is found in Pike- 
land tax list 1774 inmate, 1779 inmate. In 1781, he 
is taxed for 130 acres of land, 2 horses, and 2 cattle. 
In 1785 his federal tax was one pound, 18 shillings, 
and one pence. 

The emigrant Hartman had built himself a log 
house on his property, which he replaced with a sub- 
stantial stone building in after years. 

In 1781 Jacob moved in one end of the Hartman 
homestead ; the emigrant and his second wife lived in 
the other end. 

Jacob married Sallie Sahler, or Saylor, by tradition, 
some say Souder. 

He.vch and Dromgold Reunion 57 

His son Peter was born about 1772. Phoebe Ann, 
Margaret, John, Elizabeth, and Samuel were born in 
Chester County. 

By the will of Johanna, Jacob was to have the plan- 
tation, but just prior to this a heavy loss fell on all 
the inhabitants of Pikeland, as the following will show. 

The land forming the township of East and West 
Pikeland was patented by William Penn to Joseph 
Pike, merchant, of Cork, Ireland, Dec. 3, 1705, and 
contained 11,116 acres and allowance of 6 per cent. 

Joseph Pike died 1727 and devised his lands in 
Pennsylvania to Elizabeth, his wife. She died in 1733, 
and devised the land to her son, Richard Pike. He 
died in 1752 and devised the land to his kinsmen, 
Samuel Hoare and Nathaniel Newbury, merchants, of 
London, England. 

In 1756 Samuel Hoare purchased the interest of 
Nathaniel Newbury. On Dec. 3. 1773, Samuel Hoare, 
by his attorney, Amos Strettle, conveyed Pikeland to 
Andrew Allen, of Pennsylvania, taking a mortgage 
thereon for sixteen hundred pounds, part of the pur- 
chase money. Andrew Allen sold and conveyed par- 
cels of this land to one hundred and fifteen persons, 
among whom was Johannas Hartman, but Allen fail- 
ing to pay off the mortgage to Hoare, the latter brought 
suit and the whole was sold to Ezekiel Leonard, 
sherifif, and purchased by Hoare, to whom the deed 
was made Aug. 26, 1789. 

Many of the settlers by the pa>-ment of additional 
sums, were enabled to retain their lands and improve- 
ments, but some lost all they had. 

By a power of attorney, dated Dec. 2, 1789, Samuel 

58 Records of the Annual 

Hoare constituted Benjamin Chew, Alexander Wil- 
cocks, and Benjamin Chew, Jr., his agents, to lease or 
sell his lands. 

By the will of Johannas Hartman, in 1785, Jacob 
was to get the plantation or farm. Unfortunately the 
mortgage of Samuel Hoare ousted Jacob, compelling 
him to secure a home elsewhere. 

About the year 1791 there was a strong tide of emi- 
grants from Montgomery and Chester Counties for 
the Cumberland Valley, as the Indians were pretty 
well cleared out of that country, land being cheap at 
that place. 

Among these emigrants were Jacob Hartman, Fred- 
erick Shull, Zachariah Rice, Jacob Hippie, John 
Hench, and others. Finding the lands nearly all taken 
up, they moved up into the upper end of the then 
Cumberland County, but now Perry County. Jacob 
Hartman took up a tract of land in Saville Township, 
Perry County, and built thereon a substantial log 
house and barn and got his farm into good working 
order. The soil was sandy and did not prove so good 
as the rich lands in Chester and Montgomery Coun- 
ties. In their selection of lands they were guided by 
an old rule, that where you find large timber the soil 
will be good, but this rule did not apply to Buffalo Val- 
ley, which is in Saville Township. 

This log house was built of hewn timber and stood 
the storms of a hundred of years. It was torn down 
in 1900. In the centre of the building was a large 
stone chimney, with one large fire-place in it on the 
kitchen side, and a small fire-place on the opposite 
side in the bed room, and another small fire-place in 
the parlor. 

Hexch and Dromgold Reunion 59 

The old clock ticked away for about eighty years, 
when it was removed to the home of Levi Wibley, who 
sold it to Harry W. Hartman, of Ellwood, Pa., who 
is a great-grandson of Jacob. 

The log barn is still in use. The Buffalo Creek runs 
in front of the house and about 500 feet off and along- 
side of the barn a never failing stream of water runs 
from the mountain. The land has a southern ex- 
posure with the Tuscarora Mountain on the north. 

The famous old orchard planted by Jacob has now 
disappeared. One tree in particular of that orchard 
was called Aunt Betsy's tree, being named for one of 
Jacob's daughter's-in-law, Elizabeth Olwein, wife of 
Peter Hartman, Jacob's oldest son. 

Jacob lived on the farm until after 1800, when he 
moved to Blain, Toboyne Township, where he died 
about 1823, and is buried at Blain. After the death 
of his first wife he married a second time Eva Marie 

Jacob left a large amount of real estate, but when 
it came to be sold scarcely anything could be got for 
it, as times were extremely dull and money scarce. The 
executors had to hold the property for a long time, 
but the creditors getting tired of waiting, took the mat- 
ter into court and caused his executors, Peter Hart- 
man and Frederick Shull, to show why they would not 
sell. The final distribution took place among the heirs 
in 1830. 

Tradition states Jacob was in the battle of Brandy- 
wine and being wounded, made a plug of grass to 
close the wound and staunch the flow of blood. He 
crawled under a bridge to prevent being taken pris- 

6o Records of the Annual 

oner. The Pennsylvania Archives giving a list of 
Revolutionary soldiers, gives two Jacob Hartmans, one 
leaving it at Lancaster in 1828. 

Andrew Hartman, Jacob's grandson, writ€S from 
Cando, North Dakota, that Mathias, his father, told 
him Jacob was a Revolutionary soldier. 

Jacob's father, Johanna, was a member of the com- 
mittee of safety that took steps leading to the Revo- 
lutionary of 1776, so that the descendants of Jacob 
Hartman, wishing to gain admission to the Sons or 
Daughters of the Revolution, can refer to Jacob and 
Jacob's father as authority for adjoining that order. 

In the X.\me of God, Amen. 

I, Jacob Hartman, of the township of Toboyne, 
county of Cumberland, and state of Pennsylvania, 
farmer, being weak in body, but of sound mind, mem- 
ory, and understanding, (blessed be God for the same) 
but considering the uncertainty of this transitory life, 
do make and publish this my last will and testament 
in manner and form following vis-principally, and first 
of all I command my immortal soul into the hands of 
God, who gave it and my body to the earth to be 
buried in a decent and Christian-like manner at the 
discretion of my executors hereafter named, and as 
to such worldly estate herewith it hath pleased God 
to bless me in this life with. I give and dispose of the 
same in the following manner, viz : 

First. It is my will and I do order that all my just 
debts and funeral expenses be duly paid and satisfied 
as soon as conveniently can be after my decease. 

Secondly. It is my will and I do order my execu- 

Hexch and Dromgold Reunion 6i 

tors liereafter named, as soon as conveniently after 
my decease to make sale of all my real and personal 
estate (except my wearing apparel) for such price or 
prices as may be reasonably got for the same, and I 
do authorize and empower my said executors to sign, 
seal and execute such deed or deeds of conveyance as 
may be necessary for granting and assuming the same 
to the purchaser in fee simple. 

Thirdly. I give and bequeath unto my loving wife, 
Eva Hartman. the one-third of all the moneys arising 
from the sale of my personal property after deducting 
the expenses of putting the same to sale, and also the 
one-thirteenth part of all the moneys which may arise 
from the sale of my real estate after deducting the 
debts, if any there be, and the expenses of putting the 
same to sale, this part of the legacy to be paid to her 
as soon as convenient, and in equal proportion with 
the other heirs hereafter named. 

Fourthly. It is my will and I do positively order 
my executors to make an equal divide of all the residue 
or amount of the moneys arising from the sales of 
my real or personal estate, or otherwise between my 
following named children as equal heirs, viz: 

Peter Hartman, Pheby Shull, ISIargaret Yons. John 
Hartman, Elizabeth Yons, Sally Yons, Samuel Hart- 
man, William Hartman, Matthias Hartman, Jacob 
Hartman, Henry Hartman, and Matlania Hartman, as 
heirs, in common to be paid to them, or their guardian, 
as soon as possible for the use of the aforesaid heirs 
or assigns forever. 

Fifthly. I order my executors to divide my wear- 
ing apparel equally between my seven sons,

And lastly I nominate, constitute and appoint Peter 
Hartman, Frederick Shull, and William Anderson, es- 
quaire, to be the executors of this my will, hereby 
revoking all other wills and bequests by me made, and

Elizabeth Ohvein, wife of Peter (3) Hartman, was 
a relative of Gen. Anthony Wayne, and inherited the 
push and vigor of the Wayne family. To a woman 
brought up in the full and plenty of an old Chester 
County home the change to the wilds and inconven- 
iences of Perry County, was a great one, but she set- 
tled down to her work and kept it up to the end, leav- 
ing a splendid record as a wife, mother and friend. 
When her first child was about six months old she 
started from Buffalo Mills on horesback with her child 
and traveled 120 miles to visit her parents, friends and 
relatives in Chester County. Being a woman of good 
address she met with kindness all along the route. 
How many women to-day would do the ''likes o' 
that;" truly a hospital would be wanted at each end 
of the line. Her two youngest boys, Ben and Fred, 
were athletes when small. When they did something 
wrong Aunt Betsy would go for them with a whip, 
they would nm up stairs. Aunt Betsy after them, the 
boys would jump out of the second-story window. 
"You Ben !" "You Fred !" but the boys were on their 

66 Records of the Annual 

way to the barn by this time for shelter. She died 
at the ripe old age of 88 years. The sun shines bright 
on the old Emanuel Graveyard, but on no grave does 
it shine where a wife and mother's life work was done 
better than that of Aunt Betsy's. 

Elizabeth (4) Hartman, daughter of Peter (3) 
Hartman, married Samuel Shoemaker, a blacksmith 
and farmer. This woman had all the traits of her 
mother. In a conversation with Samuel Shumaker in 
old age he made an eulogy on her and what she had 
done for him that any wife would be proud of. 

One of their descendants was John (5) Shoemaker, 
a celebrated scholar and teacher at Academia, Blairs- 
town, N. J., well known to all the older people of this 
county. His son Samuel (6) was an officer of the 
Huntingdon, afterward cashier of the National Bank 
of Western Pa., at Pittsburgh, and well known for 
his probity and honesty. 

Benjamin (4), son of Peter (3), and Elizabeth was 
an iron man. He ran the Oak Grove Furnace for 
some years and was an athlete, but he died at an 
earlier age than most of his relatives. His good humor 
was shown when nearing death by his jokes with the 
doctor. His wife, Penniah, a pious woman, survived 
him some years. Their son, Harry Watters, is a well- 
known iron man and founder of the Hartman Steel 
Company of Beaver Falls. His brother, Jesse L., is 
prothonotary of Blair County. 

Frederick (4), Benjamin's brother, was an athlete 
and wrestler. On one occasion when taking a drove 
of cattle to Philadelphia he stopped over night at Lan- 
caster where some of his friends arranged for a wrest- 

Hexch and Dromgold Reunion 67 

ling match between another and himself. Fred ob- 
jected to it but his friends finally prevailed on him to 
wrestle. Fred was only medium height and his op- 
ponent a tall and powerful man. They clinched and 
Fred soon found himself off his feet going up, but his 
feet struck the top of the stove. This threw his op- 
ponent off his balance and they fell with Fred on top. 
His opponent insisted on another trial. Fred having 
learned his opponent's points threw him over heels 
up, landing him on his back and knocked the wind out 
of him. He did not come to and his friends had to 
rub him and give him stimulants to revive him.

John (3) Hartm.-xn. 

John was a butcher by trade and a general all- 
round man, strong, powerful, he could give a good 
account of himself in a scrap. He made a clearing 
near the top of the Gap, above Ickesburg, on the road 
over the Tuscarora Mountain, and started a country 
tavern. His services were in demand at the hog 
butcherings about the holidays. When John indulged 
in too much whisky he would cry and beg his wife 
not to scold him. There is no trace of this clearing 
or tavern save a small piece of stone wall to support 
the bank. 

It was a remarkable thing that two men should 
meet at this wild lonesome spot, strangers to each 
other. "Good morning, sir;" reply, "good morning." 

Hexch and Dromcold Reuxiox 71 

"What are you looking for?" "Hunting for the ruins 
of the old Hartman tavern." "I am too, but here is 
all that is left of it." "Who are you?" "\\'esley Ful- 
ler." "Who are you?" John ^I. Hartman." Both 
were relatives and descendants of the original Johan- 
nas Hartman. 

This tavern became well known as a place of meet- 
ing for the bullies of Perry and Juniata Counties, the 
lines of the two counties here joining. The bullies 
and their backers would meet in the back yard to de- 
cide who was the best man.

78 Records of the Annual 

Zachariah Rice 

The Rice Genealog>' read by Rev. Vernon Rice, Aug. 
9, 1906. 

Among the 30,000 German emigrants who landed in 
Philadelphia between 1727 and 1776 we find that of 
Zachary (Reys or Reiss) Rice, who landed from the 
ship Edinborough, took the oath of allegiance to King 
George 3d, of England. 

He was born in 1731, and before he came to this 
country was by trade a millwright. 

His first work of any importance was to build a mill 
for the separation of clover seed. This mill is still 
standing and is used as a storehouse. The machinery 
has disappeared. It is situated on the Pickering Creek, 
near Pikeland Station, Chester County. 

Traces of the head and tail races still remain. Judg- 
ing from the number of mill sites and from the re- 
mains of old mills, we may infer that Zachary Rice 
was a very busy man. His style of clover mills was 
in use until i860. 

In the vicinity of Pickering clover mill lived Johan- 
nas and Margaret Hartman, also Germans, who came 
over in 1750. 

Their daughter, Maria Appolonia, afterward called 
Abagail, for short, was born according to the record 
of the old Bible, which reads : "In the year 1742 my 
wife, IMaria Appolonia, was born in the month of 
September, on the 4th day of the month, on Moses 


Founders of the 

OF Perry Cointv, Pa. 

Hen'Cii and Dromgold Reunion 79 

Her father was John Hartman, and her mother 
Margaret Hartman. 

In the old Trappe church book we find : "Confirmed 
Maria A. Hartman, aged 15 years, daughter of Johan- 
nas Hartman and his wife Margaret, of Pikeland, 
Chester County, June 26, 1756." 

Zachary married Abagail Hartman in 1757. She 
was 16 years. They went to housekeepieng on the 
form (owned by Daniel Lacey, in 1898) in Pikeland 
Township. To them twenty-one chiMren were born, 
seventeen of whom lived to a good old age. 

Zachary taught his trade to his boys and to many 
others. As a farmer could also be a carpenter in those 
days, he worked on the hospital built at the Yellow 
Springs, in Pikeland, for the sick and wounded of the 
Revolution in 1776. 

He also did other work for the government. He 
bought a farm of 205->4 acres and paid $4 (four dol- 
lars) per acre, in all $823. 

What remained after first payment he paid in four 
yearly instalments of £166 and 2^4 pence. 

By a deed poll dated May 22, 1786, Zachary bought 
no acres from neighbor Francis Sole for £162. 

In 1767 he built a new house on a sloping hillside; 
at the foot of the hill there was an excellent spring 
which still pours out its blessings to man and beast. 

The date was placed in the gable end of the house 
in a semi-circular space of twenty-four inches wide. 
The name of the builder and the date were cut out in 
figures and letters of a proper shape from an old fur 
hat ; the space was plastered and the name and date 

8o Records of the Annual 

were pressed into the soft plaster, where they remained 
until 1885, when an addition was built to house. 

The German language was used in school, home, and 

Zachar}' was humorous, as related by George Hart- 
man, St., a nephew of Mrs. Rice, who visited the Rice 
family, taking dinner with the seventeen children 
around the table, that on such occasions Zachary would 
say, "George, you must help yourself, for here it goes 
like furnaces and forges." 

Zachary was a regular attendant at the house of 
worship. They all attended St. Augustine's Lutheran 
church, at the Trappe, in charge of Father Muhlen- 
berg, the pioneer of the American Lutheran Church. 
The distance from Zachary's house was thirteen miles ; 
they traveled on horseback by bridle paths ; carriages 
and wagon roads were unknown. On the way they 
forded the Schuylkill and reached a cold uninviting 
old church and sat for two or three hours. 

In 1771 St. Peter's, a log church, was built in Pike- 
land. Here the Rice family attended until 1790, when 
they moved to Juniata County. 

The records in Zion's Lutheran church book say: 
"Peter Hartman and wife, Maria Catherine, were 
sponsors in 1764 for Peter, son af Zachariah Reiss 
and wife Appolonia," and records of baptism "of 
Zachariah Reiss and Appolonia was born Dec. 23, 1766, 
Maria Engel." 

Also confirmation of their son Benjamin, by Rev. 
John Herbst, of Loysville, in 1798, and of Margaretta, 
by Rev. John W. Heim, in 1817. 

We spoke of Zachary building some hospitals for 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion- 8i 

the government, but when the Revolution broke out 
the Yellow Springs Hospital was filled with wounded 

One of the most frequent visitors to this hospital 
was Mrs. Rice, who on her errands of mercy, carried 
food and delicacies to the sick soldiers. During these 
visits she contracted the typhus fever, from the ef- 
fects of which she afterwards died. 

Mrs. Rice was a stout, well-built woman, warm 
hearted, and ready to lend a helping hand. It is re- 
lated that after the battle of Brandywine, General 
Washington retreated across the Chester Valley to the 
Yellow Springs, passing the Rice home. Halting with 
his staff officers he asked for some water to drink. 
Mrs. Rice quickly sent one of her daughters to the 
spring for a bucket of water, and mixing into it some 
sugar, rum, and spice, made "flip," a then common 
drink, and presented the bucket to General Washing- 
ton, addressing his as "my lord." Washington im- 
mediately replied, "We have no titles here, we are* all 
brothers, my heart is with my poor men who lie in 
the battle field at Brandywine." This was one of 
Washington's darkest moments. 

In 1789 the farm was seized by the foreclosure of 
an old English mortgage. He with 113 other farmers 
lost his property. 

In the succession of owners from William Penn 
down, Pikeland Township was finally held by Samuel 
Hoare, a rich London merchant. 

Hoare sold the Pikeland tract to Andrew Allen, a 
Philadelphia merchant, who paid Hoare a small sum 
on account of tract and gave a mortgage for the bal- 

82 Records of the: Annual 

ance. Allen divided it into 200-and 300-acre farms 
and sold it to German emigrants as they came. Being 
a prominent man and a member of the Continental 
Congress, he was unsuspected of fraud. 

After the Revolution and Lord Howe had captured 
Trenton, Allen turned traitor, went to Trenton, and 
threw himself upon Lord Howe for protection. Even 
St. Peter's church was sold to satisfy the greed of 
the rich merchant Hoare. 

Zachary being unable to redeem his property, it 
was bought by John March, who took possession. 

How dark must have been this first cloud of dis- 
aster to a man who had toiled so long and so hard 
by dint of perseverance to gain a home he might call 
his own. 

His only solace was a kind and loving wife and 
family of obedient children. But death claimed his 
wife. It was due to weakness from the tyhpus fever 
which she contracted from the soldiers. 

She died Nov. 6, 17S9, aged 47 years, 2 months and 
2 days, and was buried at Pikeland church. Seven- 
teen of her children walked in the procession to her 
grave. A remark was made at the time that it would 
be a long time before another such sight would be 
witnessed at that church. 

Mrs. Rice was born in Germany, probably in Wor- 
tenberg. Her grave is lost ; the stone is destroyed. 

Her monument is the living, moving, energetic, hardy 
six feet tall Rice descendants, and transmitted to her 
descendants a Christian character worthy of emulation 
by kings and queens of earth.

John, the eldest son, married Elizabeth Hench, who 
took charge of the motherless children. 

Zachary, with heavy heart, left Chester County with 
seventeen children, five of whom were married. 

A goodly band with all their wagons and effects 
reached Harrisburg and attracted much attention, 
went westward and settled in Alilford Township, now 
Juniata County. 

Here they cleared forests, built log houses and 
bought a tract in 1790, and paid for it in 1801, the 
sum of 1,100 pounds, or $5,000, to Lawrence King. 

So the hero of 60 began life over again. He taught 
his children habits of thrift, industry, and economy. 

They had their pleasure parties and dances, but 
liquor was used only as a medicine and had no part 
in the dance. 

He continued at hard work until a few years of his 
death, when he spent the rest of his time in traveling 
around among his children, where he was always wel- 

While crossing the Tuscarora Mountains his neigh- 
bors would often overtake him with their teams and 
ask him to ride along with them, but he always de- 
clined, desiring to be alone and commune with his own 
thoughts after the fashion of the Germans. 

He died Aug. 19, 181 1, aged 80 years; buried at 
Church Hill, Juniata County, Pa. Thus ended the life 
of Zachary Rice, the great-great-grandfather of 8,736 

His son John was administrator, and bought the 
farm for $5,876, and a balance of $1,887.34 for the

One of the descendants writes in 1846: "Sherman's 
Valley, between the Blue Mountains on the east, and 
the Tussey Mountains in the west, forms the mam 
part of the county broken by hills and little valleys, 
between them have local names." 

In Buffalo Valley nearly all the early settlers lived 
and died. 

The Henches, Hartmans, and Rices were all re- 
markable for agility, powerful build, great strength, 
and peaceful disposition. But when roused they were 

In feats of strength, the Henches, Rices, and Shulls 
excelled; in jumping, wrestling, and running, the 

These people were honest, industrious, and law- 
abiding, fond of reading, and intelligent. I taught 
their school with an attendance of 100. I had little 
to do but teach. The older pupils exerted such a quiet 
influence in checking disorder and in setting a good 
example to the younger ones, it hardly required a 
teacher's presence to preserve order. 

Four-fifths of these pupils were descendants of 
these four families named. 

We have a grand and noble ancestry. No more 
blessed gifts can descend upon a generation than those 
of strong, moral, physical, and spiritual natures trans- 
mitted from generation. 

Our fathers left us a rich legacy ; strong minds in 
strong bodies ; a keen sense of right, truth, and jus- 
tice, and an unmistakable zeal for God and country.

Zachariah and Abigail were settled on a farm of 
about 200 acres in Pikeland by Johannes Hartman, 
where they built a house with their name and date 
1767, built in the gable end. The letters and figures 
were cut out of felt hats and imbedded in the soft mor- 
tar of the date stone. This was a solid substantial 
house with extra heavy wooden joist planed and not 
painted but no ceiling. It was partly torn down in 
1885 and rebuilt in another form. It is pleasantly lo- 
cated on a knoll about twenty-five feet high, at the 
base of which is a never failing spring of water, still 
flowing its blessing to the fifth generation. The farm 
was sold by the foreclosure of an old English mort- 
gage of Samuel Hoare, and bought in by John March. 
It is now (1888) owned by Daniel Lacey, by whose 
wife Christian March is granddaughter of John March.

Thomas Dromgold 

Tlie Dromgold family, by W. A. Dromgold. Aug. 
15, 1901. 

* * * Up to the present time I am unable to give 
the names of the ancestors more than back to Thomas 
Dromgold, my grandfather, who 15 of Scotch-Irish de- 
scent, and from what information I could gather is 
from Scotch-Irish ancestry. 

Thomas Dromgold was born in the county of Louth, 
near Dublin, in the Kingdom of Ireland, subject to the 
king of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ire- 
land, where his father was a mill owner, merchant, and 
farmer. He came to the United States when a young 
man; he emigrated from Warren Point, in the north 
of Ireland, on or about the nth day of May, 1801, and 
arrived at New Castle, Delaware, in the United States, 
on the 22d day of July, in the same year. 

From there he traveled, largely on foot, to the 
Chesapeake Bay, and from the mouth of the Susque- 
hanna River he continued his journey until he reached 
Millerstown, Perry County, Pa. Shortly after his ar- 
rival he settled near Millerstown, and subsequently re- 
moved to Donnally's Mills. Soon after he purchased 
a farm near Ickesburg, Perry County. 

He married Elizabeth Donally. * * * The first 
five years after their marriage they resided on a farm 
near Dover's Run, subsequently removed to Juniata 
County, Port Royal, in Turbett Township : a few years 
later removed to Spruce Hill Township, and finally re- 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion 141 

turned to their native county, where they lived the 
remainder of their lives. 

John Dromgold became owner of his father's farm, 
containing about 600 acres, 300 of which he improved. 
In addition to this he erected a number of tenement 
houses, was a large employer of labor, and above all, 
a man of prominence in that section of the county. 
He was elected at various times to public offices in the 
township, and was active in political and business af- 
fairs generally. Politically, he was a supporter of the 
Democratic party. 

During my trip last summer to Ireland, to learn if 
there could be any of my ancestors found in Ireland, 
I found in the county of Louth, near Dunleer and 
Drogheda, where I met James Dromgoole, the present 
clerk of the court, also assistant civil engineer ; there- 
after called upon the clergyman at the Parochial 
House, and had searched the old parish registry. 

The Castle Bellingham registry dates back only to 
1804. The Dunleer registry begins in the year 1798, 
and, of course, contains no record of my grandfather, 
Thomas Dromgold. However, on the first page of the 
registry it is found that Thomas Dromgold became the 
godfather of Margaret Dogett, on March 24, 1799, and 
on Nov. 27, 1799, the same Thomas Dromgold became 
the godfather of ^lary Boylan, and on the 30th of No- 
vember, 1800, became the godfather of Thomas King. 
In the same registry it is found that Peter Dromgold 
became the godfather for Annie Rogers, on April 11, 

From the information given by my grandfather to 
my father, and from him to me, and from information 

142 Records of the Annual 

given by several persons well advanced in years in 
Dunleer and Drogheda, that at the time my grand- 
father, Thomas Dromgold, left Ireland, that he must 
be a brother of Peter Dromgold, and grandfather of 
James Dromgoole, who together with his five brothers, 
are living on and owning the old Dromgoole homestead, 
where the old stone house and mill stands, and where 
I found the scales with the initials, "T. D." That is 
do doubt the house where my grandfather was born. 

"At the Court of Common Pleas, in and for the 
county of Perry, in the Commonwealth of Pennsyl- 
vania, in the United States of America, on the fifth 
day of January, 1830, came into open court Thomas 
Dromgold, a native of Ireland, and exhibited his peti- 
tion and affidavit stating that he is a free man, and an 
alien ; that he is about 55 years of age, as did appear 
by the Certificate of Registry, therewith presented 
under the seal of the District Court of the United 
States, and for the District of Delaware ; that he has 
continued to reside since the day of his arrival, in and 
under the jurisdiction of the United States; that he 
is desirous and willing to become a citizen of the 
United States, and to any foreign Prince, Potentate, 
State or Sovereignty whatever, and particularly to 
George the Fourth, king of the United Kingdom of 
Great Britain and Ireland. 

"Whereupon the court admitted the said Thomas 
Dromgold to become a citizen of the United States of 
America, agreeable to the acts of congress in such case 
made and provided, and upon the testimony of Jacob 
Fritz and George Monroe, Esqs., citizens of the United 
States, and duly sworn for the petitioners, George

Stroop, prothonotan,-, having thereunto set his hand 
and affixed the seal of the said court at Bloomfield, the 
nth day of June, Anno Domini, 1830." 

The Dromgold genealog>- presented by Mrs. Lelia 
Dromgold Emig, Aug. 10, 191 1. 

Thomas Dromgold. 

Thomas Dromgold, the ancestor, whom we honor 
to-day. was born in 1780, in the country of Louth, 
near Dublin, in the kingdom of Ireland, where his 
father was a mill owner, merchant, and farmer. The 
old stone house and mill remain standing to-day, 
owned and occupied by succeeding generations of 
Dromgolds. Thomas, when a young man of 22, had 
visions of untold wealth and civic liberty in the new 
world, and on or about the nth of May, 1801, he bade 
farewell to home and friends and embarking from 
Warren Point, in northern Ireland ; he sailed west- 
ward until daybreak of July 22d, when he landed at 
New Castle, Del., and became a loyal American sub- 
ject. From New Castle, he traveled by foot to the 
Chesapeake Bay, and from the mouth of the Susque- 
hanna River, he continued his journeying along the 
tow path until he neared Millerstown, Perry County, 
where he was enchanted by the scenes of the blue Juni- 
ata, as it mirrors the foot hills of the Tuscarora Moun- 
tains. Amid such surroundings, he determined to stay 
and soon thereafter located at Donnally's Mills, where 
he wooed and won the fair Elizabeth Donnally, whose 
parents were pioneers in that section and likely incor- 
porated the quaint village, which bears their name, and 
where their descendants of the fifth generation uphold 

144 Records of the Annual 

the character of a good man and his faithful wife. 
Elizabeth Donnally had two brothers and two sisters, 
namely, ^lichael, Claude, Abby, and Nancy. 

Thomas Dromgold and Elizabeth Donnally were 
were married about 1807, and soon thereafter moved 
to a farm of 600 acres, which he had purchased above 
Saville, Pa. They were blessed with four sons and 
two daughters. Agnes died very young, and Thomas 
died at the age of 17. 

I. Edward, the eldest, was born about 1809. He 
married Rebecca Sheibley, and both are buried at Esh- 
col. They had three children. A son ; Mary Eleanor, 
who married Jacob Dum ; and Rebecca Elizabeth, who 
married (ist) Robert N. Willis, and (2d) William 
Harrison Foose ; they left five children and five grand- 
children, a total of thirteen descendants. 

n. John Dromgold married Bandinah Hench, a 
daughter of Samuel Hench, and Elizabeth Yohn. They 
had the following children : 

Eliza Jane, who married Solomon Bower, both de- 

Jemima Ellen, the wife of Nicholas Ickes, of Pleas- 
ant Dale, Nebraska. 

Jklargaret Anne, deceased, the wife of G. William 

Clarinda and Deliah, who died young. 

Samuel ^Mitchell, of Blain. 

William Scott, of Saville. 

Doctor Thomas M., of Ottawa, llinois. 

Walker A. ,of York, Pa. 
Dr. Stuart T., of Elmore, Ohio. 

A total of eleven children, forty-four grandchildren.

III. Manassah Dromgold was born about 1813, and 
married Sarah Loy, both now deceased. Of their chil-

Michael Thomas, of Shermansdale, Pa.

George Calvin, deceased.

A total of seven children, fifteen grandchildren, and 
twenty-eight great-grandchildren. 

IV. Susan Dromgold married Jacob ]Miller. Both 
are buried at Eshcol. Of the family : 

Thomas Dromgold, who lived and died in Duncan- 
non. Pa. 

Wesley, deceased, buried at Eshcol. 

Mary Ellen, deceased, the wife of Joseph Bealor, of 

Dr. George A., of Jacksonville, Missouri. 

Eliza, deceased, wife of Thomas Harper, of New- 

Harriet Emeline, widow of Samuel Wentz, residing 
at St. Louis, AIo. 

Michael Amos, of New Sharon, Iowa.

delphia, both deceased. 

Jacob Willis, of Evans, Iowa. 

146 Records of the Annual 

A total of nine children, twenty-two grandchildren, 
and seven great-grandchildren. 

A grand total of the family of Thomas Dromgold 
and Elizabeth Donnally is 6 children, 32 grandchildren, 
85 great-grandchildren, 103 great-great-grandchildren, 
and 3 great-great-great-grandchildren, to whom they 
have bequeathed the remembrance of their faith in God 
and usefulness as a heritage to future generations. 

Thus we observe that the ancestor, Thomas Drom- 
gold, was among the pioneer settlers of Perry County, 
and his descendants are related to its oldest and most 
worthy citizens, who are here to-day to celebrate the 
lioth anniversary of his arrival in America. 

He died on the 8th day of March, 1841. Eliza- 
beth, his wife, resided at the old homestead until Sept. 
28, i860, when in the 74th year of her, age, she was 
laid to rest beside her husband and two children, who 
had preceded her. 

The Hartmans, Rices, Henches, and Ickeses were 
among the early emigrants to Chester County, Pa., 
who served with distinction during the Revolutionary 
War, and it is with great pleasure that I state that I 
have- established the records of these ancestors and 
that their descendants are entitled to membership in 
the Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution. 

After the war of 1776, as many of you know, these 
pioneers, who had toiled so faithfully to establish their 
homesteads in Chester County, Pa., were unfortunate 
to lose all their properties through foreclosure pro- 
ceedings of English mortgages. Heavy of heart, but 
not discouraged, they migrated in large wagons to 
Perry County, where they established new homes and 

Hench and Dromgold Reunion 147 

made the foundations for those who have gone out 
from among us to fill positions of great usefulness. 

Honor is due my father, Walker A. Dromgold, for 
the keen foresight, which has made the fifteenth re- 
union of to-day a realization. 

Have you ever thought of the awakened influences 
of these reunions? How many acquaintances have 
been established and family ties renewed ; how they 
have inspired affection for our kinsmen, and patriot- 
ism for our native land ! 

But what of the future? John Hartman, the noted 
genealogist, and Rev. Vernon Rice, who prepared the 
ancestral lines for publication, are among the list of 
departed comrades of the past year. 

We are profoundly indebted to the Advocate and 
Press for the space they have given the genealogies 
during these years. 

Having completed the last of these family records, 
it is our opportunity, if not our duty, to compile the 
same in neat book form, so that a copy of the same 
may be treasured in your homes for the coming gen- 
erations, and placed in the archives of our state and 
national libraries. 

May I close with the words of the immortal poet : 

"Lives of great men all remind us, 
We may make our lives sublime, 
And departing, leave behind us 
Footsteps on the sands of time. 

"Footsteps, that perhaps another 
Sailing o'er life's solemn main, 
A forlorn and ship-wrecked brother, 
Seeing, shall take heart again.

"Let us, then, be up and doing, 

With a heart for any fate, 
Still achieving, still pursuing, 
Learn to labor and to wait."
