Some descendants of Jacob and Susanna Gangewehr


First Generation  Next




1. Jacob Gangewehr,1 son of Heinrich Gangwehr 2 and \\, was born about 1677 in Bavaria, Germany, died in 1779 in Pennsylvania about age 102, and was buried in 1779 in Friedensville Cemetery, Friedensville, Lehigh, Pennsylvania.3 Another name for Jacob was Jacob Gangwyer.

General Notes:

One of the early settlers of Lehigh County (Upper Saucon Township). He is probably the ancestor of all Gangewere family in Pennsylvania.

About Gangwehr, Jacob
Emigrated from Germany to America on the ship "James Goodwill". Name translates as "the act of going" + "to defend one's home or country". Jacob is said to have been a soldier in Bavaria. He was of the Reformed faith, and was a communicant of Blue Church outside Coopersburg, PA. Jacob acquired his first 150 acres from the Penn family in 1734. This tract and subsequently-acquired adjoining land were farmed by Jacob Gangewer and his family until the end of the eighteenth century. Over time, he acquired hundreds of acres of land, and built a stone house, parts of which still stood as of 1884. Some sources have his name as "John". This apparently mistakes the religion's universal name of "Johannes" before the individual's name. As of 1930, the family graveyard still existed, "identified by a marker made up from surviving headstones", adjacent to Weyhill Course Hole #7 of the Saucon Valley Golf & Country Club, outside Friedensburg, PA.

Thank you for the Gangewere posting, which is from the "History of Lehigh Co" Vol II. It is posted on the Lehigh Rootsweb site. The author did not do a good job on the Jacob Gangewere's. The children listed say of Jacob, making it sound like Jacob b.1677.
BUT there are at least five Jacob Gangewere's between the beginning of the article and the children he starts putting dates to. I have not found a Gangewere researcher, including my self who can figure out the mess.

IF ANYONE COMES ACROSS MY POSTED RESEARCH DISREGARD THE FIRST TWO GENERATIONS, THEY ARE NOT CORRECT.

History of Lehigh County
Jacob Gangewere, emigrated from Germany 1727. He is said to have been a soldier before leaving Bavaria. The ancestor followed farming. He was a man of unusaul vitality, being 50 when he arrived here in 1727 and he died in 1779 at the age of 102.

The change in the form of the name is shown by the fact he signed his name to a petition of German immigrants in Bucks County in 1734 as Jacob Gangewehr, and among the list of communicants at the Blue church in Upper Saucon in May, 1750, we find Jacob Gangewehr and son Christoper. The name of his wife is not on record, and the names of his children may not be given in the correct order, as dates of birth are not recorded. As nearly as may be ascertained they are Michael, of furthur mention; Andreas (or Andrew) of furthur mention; Christoper, of furthur mention; Jacob; Matthaus of furthur mention; John George; Henry, although it is not quite certain whether he was a son of Jacob or another immigrant of a similar name, of further mention; and several children.

[Source: Catalyst, http://gongwers.org/wiki/Gangwyer,_Jacob]

Johann Jacob Gangwyer is considered the first family member to arrive in the American colonies from Europe in the 1720s, according to family and other historical documents. The first reference to his name (Jacob Gangwyer [sic]) is the record of his arrival from Europe, though his name appeared in later documents with varying spellings (e.g., Gongwer, Gangaware, Gangwehr, Gangewere). His descendants can also be found with various spellings of this name (e.g., Gangaware, Gongaware, Gongwer). (See main article on the Gongwer (Gangaware, Gangwer, Gongaware, Gongwere, Gongewer) family ). It is estimated that Jacob was born around the year 1677 and left Bavaria, Germany and traveled to Pennsylvania via Rotterdam (Netherlands) in 1727.[1] Sources vary regarding the year of his death, with one estimating that he died in 1779 at the old age of 102 in Upper Saucon Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania . Another source indicates that he was born in 1705, which would have aged him at 22 years old when he arrived in Pennsylvania.

European origin and immigration to Pennsylvania
The first mention of Jacob Gangwyer is the name on the Ships List of the English ship "James Goodwill" which arrived at a Pennsylvania port from Rotterdam (Holland) via Falmouth, England, on September 27, 1727, carrying approximately 200 Palatine passengers.[2]

While many of the immigrants were from the Palatinate region and could accurately be considered Palatines, the term "Palatine" was used loosely by English speakers and colonial administrators to refer to basically all German-speaking immigrants[3]. The term was simplistically applied to all, whether they were actually from the Palatinate region or whether they belonged to any of the diverse groups from German speaking areas in that part of Europe (e.g., German speaking Huguenots from Alsace , Swiss Anabaptists (e.g., Mennonites and Amish ) from German-speaking Swiss cantons like Bern (canton) , or Germans from Bavaria , Hesse, and Baden Wurttemburg) as well as the Palatinate.

The Ships List of the "James Goodwill" listed the names of 52 men and the number of family members who accompanied them. One of the names on the James Goodwill's passenger list was "Jacob Gangwyer"[4]. No accompanying family was specifically indicated, although a "1" beside his name may have indicated that he was traveling with a spouse (later documents indicates that he was married to a woman named Susanna), and later records listed "Bavaria" as his place of origin. His name (spelled "Ganwyer"[5] on this second document, a discrepancy that was common on documents penned by English immigration clerks who simply guessed at the spelling of German names) was also on a list of individuals who, on the same day of September 27, 1727, were sworn in as giving their allegiance to the King of England (since Pennsylvania was a British colony at the time).

However, another source [1] suggests that "Jacob Gangwehr"[6] [sic] was a soldier in Bavaria, a profession inconsistent with a basic doctrine of the pacifist Anabaptists, but not inconsistent with the Reformed faith of the Huguenots or that of the Lutherans. Religious persecution in France led to a widespread Diaspora of French Protestants, most fleeing across nearby borders (e.g., from Alsace into neighboring Bavaria).

For more information on the religious heritage of the family, see the main article on the Gongwer (Gangaware, Gangwer, Gongaware, Gongwere, Gongewer) family .

Other name references
According to historical texts, Jacob (whose name was later changed in the records to Gangaware) was one of the founders of Saucon Township in 1743.[7] At the time he owned two tracts of land (Tracts 127, 128 - under name Jacob Gangaware) [8]. The first tract of land was obtained by occupation as a settler: "Jacob Gongwer first occupied a tract of one hundred and fifty acres, now owned by Jacob Gangaware and the Thomas Iron Company."[9]

In December 27, 1781, the name "Jacob Gangware" was included on the tax list for Saucon Township .[10] The assessment for 1812 included the names of "David Gangeware", "Jacob Gangeware", and "Henry Gangeware". The total tax collected for roughly 300 landowners was $609 for the year of 1812.[11]
Marriage and family

Original plots/tracts (127, 128) deeded to Jacob Gangaware (Gongaware) in Upper Saucon Township.

Current topo map of Upper Saucon Township, including golf course where Gangaware lands used to be Jacob Gangwyer, whose name later showed up in records spelled Gongaware or Gangewere, was married to Susanna Margaret Heistern (1708-1794) , whom some sources indicate was also born in Europe (Bavaria, Germany?).

It is unclear whether Jacob and Susanna were married by the time they arrived in Pennsylvania or were married after they arrived. The passenger list of the ship James Goodwill had an extra mark by Jacob's name, which may have indicated that he came with a member of his family (the primary passenger ticket holder's name was on the list, together with check marks for the number of additional passengers). In any case, Jacob and Susanna settled and raised their family in the predominately Lutheran settlement area which became Upper Saucon Township in Northampton County, Pennsylvania.

Northampton County was later divided into smaller counties, and Gangaware's tracts of land were located in what today is known as Lehigh County , and with a small portion falling in Bucks County.
Jacob and Susanna had the following children:
Jacob Gangewere (1723-1771)
Christopher Gangaware (1727-1778) [12], born in Saucon Township, Northampton, Pennsylvania .
Michael Gangewere (1731-1826) - Catherina Margarethe
Andreas ?(Andrew)? Gangewere (1747-1844))
Mathaus (Matthew) Gangewere (1748-1815)
George Gangewere (1756-1852)
Later, some of Jacob and Susanna's children moved further west in Pennsylvania, helping develop new settlements in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania . Some of the family was involved in starting the Harrold Church (in Hempfield Township in Westmoreland County) , a Lutheran church and one of the oldest churches in the region. Most of the pioneering families in that areas, like the Gongawares (some of the family spelled the family surname as "Gangaware"), were of the Lutheran faith.[13]

Death and burial
Sources vary regarding the year of his death, with one estimating that he died in 1779 at the old age of 102 in Upper Saucon Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.

Descendants
Jacob Gangwyer's name shows up on a number of historical documents with slight variations in the spelling (e.g., Gangwehr, Gangewere). One of his sons, Michael (1738-1826), apparently changed the spelling of his family's name to Gongaware. Years, later, Jacob's great-grandson John Philip Gongaware (1786-1851), left Pennsylvania and moved west to Ashland County, Ohio, where his family changed the spelling of the last name to Gongwer. Many of the family members who remained in Pennsylvania retained the Gongaware spelling.

According to Geoff Gongwer:
"This Family Tree sprouts from immigrant Jacob Gangwehr, born 1677 (possibly son of Heinrich (Gangwehr)), who came from Germany to America on the ship "James Goodwill" in 1727. Jacob settled in Northampton Co., PA. In the 1850's, one of his sons, Michael, moved to Westmoreland Co., PA, where the family name became known as "Gongaware". The family lived on a farm beside the Gongwer Woods near the site of the Battle of Bushy Run, and there is a Gongaware Road that runs along the edge of the battlefield present-day park, in Jeannette, PA. Subsequently, one of Michael's sons, Joseph, and one of Michael's grandsons, Philip* (son of Philip G. Gongaware) moved to Columbiana County, OH, and Richland County, OH, around 1803 and 1823, respectively. In their new lands, ~100 miles apart, both Joseph's and Philip's family's last names became known as Gongwer, thus "giving birth" to this new spelling of the family name. Some researchers believe that the original family name (Gangwehr) itself was made up by Jacob, since there is no known record of such a name in Germany"

"He was of the Reformed faith, and was a communicant of Blue Church outside Coopersburg, PA. Jacob acquired his first 150 acres from the Penn family in 1734. This tract and subsequently-acquired adjoining land were farmed by Jacob Gangewer and his family until the end of the eighteenth century. Over time, he acquired hundreds of acres of land, and built a stone house, parts of which still stood as of 1884. Some sources have his name as "John". This apparently mistakes the religion`s universal name of "Johannes" before the individual`s name. As of 1930, the family graveyard still existed, "identified by a marker made up from surviving headstones", adjacent to Weyhill Course Hole #7 of the Saucon Valley Golf & Country Club, outside Friedensburg, PA."[14]

Re: Gangewehr, Gangewere, Gongaware

Robert Gangewere
Posted: 4 Feb 2012 7:27PM
Classification: Query Surnames: Ganwehr, Ganwyer, Gangewere

I know this is 12 years later from Debbie's inquiry, but maybe there is still some interest. Here is the summary I have so far as I retrace my own roots, in a family memoir, to Jacob.

Johann Jacob Gangwehr (i.e. John Jacob Gangewere ) was born in Traunstein, Bayern, Germany in 1705, and at age 22 emigrated by himself to the United States from the port of Rotterdam, arriving in Philadelphia, 27 September, 1727. His name is near the top of the manifest of passengers, which reads:

On 27 September, 1727, fifty-three Palatines with their families, about 200 persons, imported in the ship "James Goodwill," David Crocket, Master, from Rotterdam, last from Falmouth, appeared, repeated, and signed the Declaration [Source: Col. Rec. II, pg 284] This was the first time the Philadelphia immigration agents asked a shipload of Germans to sign their names in a registry-there were so many arriving from the Rineland that the Americans felt it necessary to keep track of them.

Johann moved 60 miles north of Philadelphia and settled in Upper Saucon Township, near Bethlehem, and married Eva Christina (Catherina) Clauder (?) in 1730, at age 25. He is the American forebear of the Gangewere line, which among his desecendents had many spellings, such as Gongaware, Gangwer, and Gangwyer. The variant spellings relate to the Americans who had to spell of the sound of the name in German.

The town of Johann's origin, Traunstein in the state of Bayern, is above Munich, on the Isar River, north of the Bavarian Alps. This is the southeastern heart of Germany, with Augsburg to the west, where Luther was active, and Nurenburg to the North, where the Allies symbolically held the trials after World War II, condemning the Nazi leadership. The land is full of plateaus and forests, and the Isar flows north into the Danube. In photos the Isar resembles the Delaware river.

The religious wars of the Reformation, between Protestants and Catholics in the 1600s, spared Traunstein, but in 1705 during the war of the Spanish Succession about unifying France and Spain, the town was burned, destroying its medieval buildings, and producing hardship on the citizens. Bayern or Bavaria was a separate city-state and part of the Catholic Holy Roman Empire. The unification of Germany in 1871 made Bavaria one of the largest German states.

Other records indicate Jacob Gangwehr bought 25 acres in Bucks County on 22 October, 1751, and lists his name as Johannes Jacob Gangwehr, [Source Pennsylvania German Pioneers, 1727-1808 Vol. 1]. His father is identified as Heinrich, born 1679, who did not immigrate to America. There is another family tree with a photo of a tombstone in the Friedensville Cemetary, Friedensville, Lehigh County, apparently metal attached to stone, which reads Jacob Gangwehr, 1667-1779, and has the name Charles at the bottom. This would make Jacob 99 years old at the time of his death. The father's birth date and Jacob's birthdate are probably confused. Jacob married Susanna Margaret Heistern (Hertz), 1708-1794.

Gangewere Family.

Jacob Gangewere emigrated from Germany to America on the ship "James Goodwill," which landed at Philadelphia, Sept. 27, 1727. The name has been variously spelled as Gangwehr, Gangwer, Gangawer, Gangewer, Gangaware, and Gongaware. The name of Jacob Gangwehr appears in the list of persons who qualified, thus evidencing that he was of the Reformed faith. He is said to have been a soldier before leaving Bavaria. After his arrival in Philadelphia he acquired title to a tract of several hundred acres of land situated in what was then Northampton county, now Upper Saucon township, Lehigh county. The original dwelling house was a log cabin, but later a stone house was erected, and this is still standing, a cut of which is herewith produced. The ancestor followed the occupation of farming. He was a man of unusual vitality, being fifty years of age when he arrived here in 1727, and died in 1779 at the age of one hundred and two years. The change in the form of the name is shown by the fact that he signed his name to a petition of the German immigrants in Bucks county in 1734 as Jacob Gangwer, and among the list of communicants at the Blue church in Upper Saucon in May, 1750, we find Jacob Gangewehr and son, Christopher. The name of his wife is not on record, and the names of his children may not be given in correct order, as dates of birth are not recorded. As nearly as may be ascertained they are Michael, of further mention; Andreas (or Andrew), of further mention; Christopher, of further mention; Jacob; Matthaus, of further mention; John George; Henry, although it is not quite certain whether he was a son of this Jacob or another immigrant of a similar name, of further mention; and several other children.

The following record could possibly be for the same person. However, it is equally likely -- perhaps more likely based on the birthdates of his children -- that this Jacob was the son of Jacob and the father of all the children attributed to the older Jacob. The older Jacob's supposed birthdate of 1677 would make him about 51 years old before the birth of his first supposed child, Christopher. It is more likely that the Jacob shown below, presumably born in 1705, was the older Jacob's son and the father of the children attributed to the older Jacob. It is also possible that the Susanna attributed to the older Jacob was actually the Susanna Heistern mentioned below. It is also possible that two Jacobs are not even related. Sadly, we may never know the truth.

Jacob Gangaware

Jacob Gangwyer's name first appears on the passenger list of the ship "James Goodwill" which sailed from the Rotterdam (stopping at Falmouth, England, on the way) and arrived at the Port of Philadelphia on September 30, 1727.

Jacob Gangwyer (whose name was later changed in the records to Gangaware) was one of the founders of Saucon Township in 1743. At the time he owned two tracts of land (Tracts 127, 128 - under name Jacob Gangaware).

General Notes:

At least one source on ancestry.com (My Extended Family Tree) gives her name as Susanna Margaret Hertz but does not provide a source. This source also lists Christopher Gangewere (1735-1778) and Catharine Weaver (1740-1778) as the parents of George Gangewher (born 1756). This would make Jacob and Susanna his grandparents and not his parents as some sources indicate.

Christopher, son of Jacob Gangewere, is recorded as being a communicant member of the Blue church, Upper Saucon, in 1750. Sept. 23, 1778, there were appointed as administrators of his estate, Michael and Catherine Gangewere, he being mentioned as late of Salisbury township, this proving that he possessed property at the time of his death. He had children: Elizabeth, over fourteen, chose Michael Heller as her guardian; Sevilla, Daniel and David, being under fourteen years of age, had Philip Bahl appointed by the court as their guardian.

Classification: Query

I don't think I will ever have time to straighten out or understand the Gangewere families in Pennsylvania. What I have in my records is Jacob Gangewere 1677 or 1705 married to Susanna Margaret who was born in Bavaria and died in 1794 in Upper Saucon. Nine children including Jacob or John Jacob 1732/3 (my line), and Christopher. Christopher died in September 1778. He had 3 children: Elizabeth, Sevilla and Daniel. Daniel 1767-1856 married Barbara 1773-1854. Daniel and Barbvara's Children were: Maria married to John Strassburger; Elizabeth marriedd to Leonard Schweitzer; Rebecca to George Schaeffer; Susanna to Reinhard; Barbara to Solomon Bieber; Hannah to William Saeger; Mary Barbara to Charles Keck; Catherine to Joseph Clader; and Paul.
Daniel 1767-1856, was a farmer in Hanover township where he owned a 68-acre farm near the bend in the Lehigh river.

Then I have Valentine Clader's daughter, Christiana, born in 1750 earlier on, married to a George Gangewher.

My source for much of this is derived from the History of Lehigh County, Pa. Vol II, pages 410-412. On page 412 they report "Christopher, son of Jacob Gangewere, a communicant member of the Blue Church, Upper Saucon in 1750, Sept 23, 1778, there were appointed as administrators of his estate, Michael and Catherine Gangewere, he being mentioned as late of Salisbury townshi;....He had children: Elizabeth, over 14 chose Miachael Heller as her guardian: Sevilla, Daniel and David being under 14 had Philip Bahl, appointed by the court as their guardian...."

Appreciate any input to clarify what is reported in the History of Lehigh Co.
Harold.

Noted events in his life were:

• Alt. Death: 1778. 9

Christopher married Catharina Weaver. Catharina was born about 1736. Other names for Catharina were Catharina \ and4 Catherina Gangwehr.

Ron,

Yes I am talking about Christopher who died before Sept 1778. Christopher's wife was also named Catherine. Christopher and Catherine had two children baptized at St James Lutheran Church, Upper Saucon Twp., now Lehigh County, PA: Hanna Christina was born 25 Dec 1752 and baptized 23 Jan 1753; Johann Jacob was born 20 Feb 1754 and baptized 19 May 1754, sponsors were Jacob Gangewehr and wife Susanna. I also believe that the Catherine who resided over his estate was his wife not sister-in-law. During this period females other than the deceased wife usually did not get legally involved with an estate. Also Elizabeth, daughter of deceased Chistopher Gangewere was confirmed at St James Lutheran Church on 5 Apr 1776.

Many times the direct family became guardians of the deceased's children, thus I asked my question whether Christopher's wife was related to Philip Bahl. Being guardian did not mean that the three children were adopted. I don't have any information about these three children being adopted. The guardian often only handled the legal needs of the children until they were of age.

My records list the following children for Christopher: Hanna Christina born 25 Dec 1752, baptized 23 Jan 1753 at Blue Church; Johann Jacob born 20 Feb 1754, baptized 19 May 1754 at Blue Church, also buried at Blue Church; George born 20 Jul 1756; Elizabeth born about 1761, confirmed 5 Apr 1776 at Blue Church; Sevilla born 11 Dec 1764, baptized Hecktown Lutheran Church; Daniel born 4 Aug 1766, baptized at Hecktown Lutheran Church; and David born 7 Nov 1771, confirmed 18 Apr 1790 at Blue Church. I have not been able to find the last name of Christopher's wife Catherina. I don't know if the same Lutheran minister served both the Blue Church and Hecktown Church during the mid 1760's causing the transition between the Upper Saucon and Hecktown churches.

UPPER SAUCON TOWNSHIP 735

SCHOOLS.-The first schools established in the township were parochial or church schools, and were opened simultaneously with the organization of the congregations to which they belonged; the first about 1738, by the Mennonites, the second about 1740 to 1745, by the Lutherans. The buildings in which they were held are noted and described under the head of churches. A third building, used for school and doubtless for church purposes also, was erected by the Quakers about 1745, on lands of John Thomas, now Clayton DeWitt, but the school, the congregation, and the church have all passed away; and this might almost be said of the old, well-filled cemetery; for it is obliterated and its site is occupied by the house-yard of Mr. DeWitt. The names of but two teachers of this era are preserved to us,-Vigero, who taught and preached at the same time for the Lutherans and Peter Knepley, of whom we find the following entered in the first church book of the Lutheran congregation now serving at the Blue Church: "June 23, 1757, Peter Knepley, the schoolmaster, married to Christina Gangaware." Later, as the settlements pushed farther away from these places, more school accommodations became necessary, and schools were opened in private houses. Of the earlier of these we know nothing, but schools of this kind are known to have been held at the houses of John Egner, now James Kidd, Erhard Weaver, now Charles E. Weaver; William Samuels, now Alfred A. Sell; Frederick Wittman, now John Yoachim; David Horlocher, now I. B. Meyers and doubtless others. It is impossible to define or limit the era of this kind of schools. Some of them were continued in neighborhoods long after schoolhouse had been erected in others, and some were opened even in the neighborhood of school-houses - these latter to meet a desire then beginning to be felt for instruction in the English language, "the teaching in the school-houses, except that of the Quakers being almost exclusively in German.


The child from this marriage was:

   22 M    i. Peter Kneple was born on 3 Apr 1758 and was baptized on 23 Feb 1759 in St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Congregation (also known as 'Blue Church'), Northampton, Pennsylvania.

Surnames: GIBBONS, JOHN, GANGWER, GANGEWEHR, GLEIFER, ARMSTRONG, KEIFFER, KEMPER, YANCEY

Hello,

I am a descendant of Abel GIBBONS, born 1720 in Wales, who came to Pennsylvania in the 1740's or 1750's. His sons John and Isaac were born in Pennsylvania. Their mother has not been identified. Abel married 2nd Eleanor JOHN.

Isaac GIBBONS (3/13/1757-12/02/1826) married Mary GANGWER (b. 11/14/1760), daughter of Johann George GANGWER and Magdalena GLEIFER, and granddaughter of Jacob GANGEWEHR of Bavaria, Germany.

At some point between 1791 and 1794, Abel, Isaac & Mary, and their children, moved to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

Isaac and Mary were the parents of:

1) John GIBBONS (11/14/1784-2/04/1866), married Jane Elizabeth KE(I)FFER (my line, continued below)
2) Abel GIBBONS (9/15/1786-5/27/1877), married Elizabeth "Betsy" BUMGARDNER
3) Mary GIBBONS (11/17/1789-6/20/1869), married Peter HENNEBERGER (or perhaps HARNSBERGER)
4) Sarah GIBBONS (1791-1872), married James TRIBBETT -- moved to Darlington, IN (I am in touch with descendant living in Florida)
5) Susan GIBBONS (2/17/1794-11/19/1860), married Abraham Shue
6) Isaac GIBBONS (6/07/1796-3/31/1880), married America Richardson; some descendants ended up in Texas
7) Lucy GIBBONS (1/28/1798-2/25/1863), married George KE(I)FFER
8) Christina GIBBONS (8/10/1801-10/07/1868), married Henry HAMMER
9) Elizabeth "Betsy" GIBBONS (8/05/1803-1/26/1885), married John ARMSTRONG -- moved to Palistine, Cooper County, Missouri
10) Samuel GIBBONS (6/17/1806-8/1870), married Christine MILLER

Of the above-listed children, my line is the one from John GIBBONS and Jane Elizabeth KE(I)FFER. Their children include:

1) Mary GIBBONS (8/31/1810-1/10/1905), became 2nd wife of next-door-neighbor William Burbridge YANCEY (who, along with his first wife, was my ggg-grandfather)
2) Emily Caroline GIBBONS (12/18/1812-10/12/1883), married Franklin Kisling PENCE, son of Ann KISLING & first husband John PENCE
3) George Rockingham GIBBONS (11/18/1814-12/11/1907), married Harriet C. RISON
4) Robert Allen GIBBONS (8/27/1817-5/16/1891), married Frances Virginia KEMPER, daughter of Ann KISLING and 2nd husband Rodham KEMPER (this is my line)
5) Sarah Ann GIBBONS (4/18/1820-3/27/1910), married William Shanks MILLER
6) Alexander Severus GIBBONS (9/09/1822-3/28/1912), married Sarah CLOUD -- moved to California
7) Jane Elizabeth GIBBONS (4/18/1825-8/17/1904), unmarried
8) Abel Montgomery GIBBONS (4/05/1828-8/11/1855), unmarried
9) John Enos GIBBONS (12/09/1830-12/29/1909), married Nancy C. ARMSTRONG
10) William Henry "Hank" GIBBONS (12/09/1830-1/24/1917), married 1st Roann DANIEL, married 2nd Margaret ARMSTRONG
11) Frances Cornelia "Fannie" GIBBONS (8/30/1833-1/03/1920), married Rev. Benjamin ARBOGAST
12) Virginia Montgomery "Ginnie" GIBBONS (9/02/1836-1/06/1928), married 1st Andrew IRICK, married 2nd Samuel R. STERLING

I would very much like to contact any descendants from these lines. I am in possession of old letters, some written as early as 1840. Some letters were written by or to Isaac's children; but the vast majority were written by or to John & Elizabeth's children or "children-in-law" (meaning Frances Virginia KEMPER who married Robert Allen GIBBONS).

If you are a descendant, please contact me.

-- Thank you,

Mary D. Taffet

Andreas or Andrew, son of Jacob Gangwehr, was born in Upper Saucon, Sept. 15, 1747, died July 10, 1844, and was buried in the cemetery at the corner of Tenth and Linden streets, Allentown. He was a tailor by trade. He served in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812, and drew pension. In his letter of application for pension, dated February, 1833, he states that he resided with his children at Easton, Pennsylvania, for ten years prior to that date, and gives the following history of his services: In July, 1776, he enlisted in the "Flying Camp," under Captain Henry Hagenbuch, Colonel Kackline commanding, going to South Amboy, New Jersey, while the British were occupying Staten Island. After returning from a visit to New York City and Fort Washington, he met his company on its way to Long Island, and obtained permission to return home. From January, 1777, he served two months as first lieutenant in Captain Francis Roth's Company, Majors Balliet and Young having the commands, marched to Farmers' Mills, now "Pennypacker's Mills," twelve miles north of Philadelphia, thence to Washington's headquarters at Morristown, New Jersey. In May, 1777, he was sent by Commissary Brittan, with Jasper Weaver and Jacob Gangewer, to South Carolina, to buy a drove of cattle. In October, 1777, he marched as lieutenant with Captain Mority, under Colonel Siegfried, to Flourtown and Farmers' Mills, remaining there about two months. In 1778 he was ordered by Captain Geiger to collect a guard to convey a number of Tories to Reading for trial, after which he was sent by Quartermaster Destoly to Valley Forge with articles for the use of the army, and soon after, in 1778, he was ordered by Colonel Hooper to convey money from Reading to Easton. In the latter part of July, 1782, he was ordered out as lieutenant under Colonel John Jones, and Colonel Hebner, and marched in an expedition against the Indians beyond the Blue mountains in Northampton county, and was stationed at Brinkers, a place between the Delaware and Susquehanna rivers. He married Mary Montaigne, and had children: Solomon, of further mention; Anthony; George; Abraham; Jacob.

General Notes:

NOTE: This George Gangewehr is attributed by some to Jacob Gangwehr, the original settler from Saucon Valley but it is more likely that George was a grandson based on the age differences. Some sources (unverified) attribute George to Jacob's son, Christopher, but he could just as likely have been a son of either Michael or Jacob, Jr.

George Gangewere, son of Jacob, the immigrant, was born July 20, 1756. He settled in Whitehall township, and on Jan. 13, 1776, en listed in Capt. Thomas Craig's company of Col. St. Clair's Second Penna. Battalion, as a fifer. The company saw service in Canada and was mustered out Nov. 25, 1776. He subsequently served two enlistments in other companies. He died March 2, 1852, aged 95 years, and is buried at Egypt. He married Christina, daughter of Valentine Clader. She was born in 1750 and died Oct. 16, 1828.

George Gangewere kept the tavern at what is now Meyersville and owned considerable land in that vicinity. He had eight children: William; Charles; Thomas; Catharine, married Peter Meyer; Nancy, married John Hoffman; Magdalena, married Abraham Hermany; Rebecca, married George Meyer; and Hannah, married John Meyer. Charles was born in 1787 and died in 1832. Thomas died in 1850, leaving a son, David.

William Gangewere, son of George, lived at Meyersville, in South Whitehall, where he was a farmer and hotel-keeper. He and his wife Elizabeth had children: James, born 1808; Anna; Magdalena; Maria; Horace; Abraham; and Charles.

Horace, born 1827, died Sept. 30, 1899, was a coachmaker and carpenter, but later removed to Allentown, where he conducted the Lafayette, Pennsylvania and Rising Sun hotels, and also a butcher shop. Charles removed to Mercer county; and James also settled in the West.

Abraham Gangewere, son of William, was born in South Whitehall, Sept. 25, 1828. He became a carpenter and as a young man removed to Allentown, where he was engaged in business as a contractor and builder until his death in 1893. He married Susan, daughter of Martin and Catharine (Rieb) Schwenk. She was born Aug. 30, 1830, and died Jan. 6, 1905. Their children were: William H.; and Josephine, married Jefferson Diehl.

William H. Gangewere, son of Abraham and Susan (Schwenk) Gangewere, was born in Allentown, Oct. 10, 1858. He acquired his education in the public schools, supplemented by a course of instruction in Blackman's Business College, and at the age of sixteen years entered his father's employ and learned the trade of carpenter. Upon becoming of age, in 1879, he was ad mitted into partnership and the firm became Abraham Gangewere & Son. They did an extensive business in Allentown and vicinity, erecting dwellings, churches and business buildings. Among the principal buildings erected by them were the Y. M. C. A. building, Young building, American Steel and Wire Company buildings, Presbyterian church, and remodelling the Ger man Catholic church and St. John's Lutheran church in 1888. Since the death of his father, Mr. Gangewere has conducted business under his own name. He built the Young and Ramsey residences and over twelve hundred other homes in the city, as well as many in the surrounding counties. His office is in the Allentown National Bank building. He has for many years been prominently identified with the affairs of the city, having been a councilman and a member of the water board. In politics, he is an active Republican, and stands high in the councils of the party. He is a director of the Allentown National Bank, a trustee of the Phoebe Deaconess Home, a member of Salem Reformed church, and a member of Barger Lodge, No. 333, F. & A. M.; Allen R. A. Chapter, No. 203; Allen Commandery, No. 20, K. T.; Bloomsburg Consistory, A. A. S. R.; Rajah Temple, A. A. O. N. M. S.; I. O. O. F.; and B. P. O. E.

Mr. Gangewere married, in 1890, Mary Craig, daughter of William Craig. She was born in 1857 and died in 1912. Her mother died when she was but five years of age, after which she was reared by her grandfather, Jacob Geisinger. She was an active member of Zion Reformed church and possessed a kind disposition, which induced her to perform many acts of charity. They had one daughter, Irene, who resides with her father.

[Source: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Pointe/5335/egypt.htm Historical Address AT THE 200TH ANNIVERSARY OF EGYPT REFORMED CONGREGATION, OCTOBER 1, 1934 By Charles R. Roberts]

On this 200th anniversary of this congregation let us endeavor to visualize this vicinity in the year 1734. It was principally forest, with a few Indian paths and some natural meadows. The timber was principally heavy and the ground usually well watered. Occasional bands of Indians still traveled through the country. A few emigrants from Switzerland, Lorraine, Alsace and various parts of Germany had the hardihood to settle in the forest in which were many bear, wolves, catamounts, wild cats, deer and other animals and clear the land. Their first houses were small, made of rough logs, usually located near a spring or small creek.

These emigrants had been reared in Europe, with the exception of the Lutheran Saeger family, in the Reformed religion, which has a wonderful history. The life of Ulrich Zwingli, the leader of the Reformed, a remarkable man, is an inspiration to those Who read it. Many of the settlers had lived for a time in Philadelphia or in Philadelphia County and had friends or relatives there and probably in communicating with them, mentioned their need of spiritual instruction, which resulted in Rev. John Philip Boehm, the pioneer preacher of the Reformed, visiting them and on September 23, 1734, performed the first baptism here, the child David, son of Peter Traxel, whose sponsors were Nicholas Kern and his wife, Mary Margaret.

The second baptism in the church records was on October 26, 1736, of John, another son of Peter Traxel, then church censor here, by Rev. John Henry Goetschius. The third baptism was that of Peter, son of Daniel and Anna Margaret Roth, on July 27, 1737. The sponsors were Peter Troxell, deacon, and his wife, Juliana Margaret. In a record written by himself in his testament, it is stated that he was born in April, 1737, in the same hour in which his father died. This was along the Jordan creek, about two miles from Allentown. He was taken among the Quakers, received a good education, spelled his name Rhoads, and in 1762 settled in Allentown. He kept a general store there for nearly fifty years, was treasurer of the Reformed congregation, and became the most prominent Revolutionary patriot in the county, holding office 38 years, a member of the first state constitutional convention in 1776, represented Northampton County in the State Committee of Safety, of which Benjamin Franklin was president, in the Assembly four terms, a member of the second constitutional convention of 1790, first President Judge of Northampton County in 1784, on the bench thirty years and first Burgess of Allentown in 1811.

The several families of the Reformed denomination who lived in this vicinity were the nucleus of this congregation. They were the Kohler, Troxell, Wotring, Hoffman, Kern, Roth, Burkhalter and Flickiniger families. Later came the Kern, Newhard, John Troxell, Schreiber, Deshler and other families. It is supposed that Jacob Kohler settled here at Egypt between 1728 and 1730. No record has as yet been found when he came to America. He was born in 1703, it is thought in Muehlhausen, then in Switzerland, now a part of Alsace. He lived for some time on his land before securing a warrant, which he secured on July 15, 1734, for 150 acres, the first warrant in the township. In 1737 he secured another for 100 acres. It was a rectangular tract with the Coplay creek flowing through it and with several fine springs. In 1755 he built the first grist mill in the vicinity, and tradition has it that as he had many daughters, they assisted in digging the mill race. An old document in existence proves that in 1753 he was one of the overseers of the poor of the township of Egypt, as it was called and in 1762 he was overseer of roads of Whitehall township. In 1768 he owned 115 acres of cultivated land and 215 acres not cultivated. In 1769 he deeded 155 acres and the mill property to his eldest son Peter and 193 acres to his son Jacob. He died in 1777 at the age of 74 years. A memorial to his memory should he placed in the cemetery here.

Some fifty years ago Squire Edward Kohler wrote a sketch of the history of Egypt printed in the "Skizzen aus dem Lecha Thale." On page nine he wrote: "During the first years of Kohler's settlement one of his children died, which he buried on a nice, sunny, level plot on a hill shaped like a half-moon, at the foot of which flowd the Coplay Creek. As also children of other settlers who died in the vicinity were buried here, so this burial place became the central point for the later Egypt congregation." Again on page 10: "When Kohler's warrants for land were surveyed the whole line on the edge of the hill was extended in such a direction that the graves remained outside of the measurements. The same thing occurred when John Troxell's second piece of land vas surveyed." On page 12 he wrote: "In 1754 Michael Kelchner took up a land warrant for sixty acres. With this warrant the hill, on which were the graves already mentioned, could have been taken up. But as it was already generally understood that some some acres should not be taken up, and were excepted for church uses, so this piece of land was left lie." Also on page 14: "About the year 1764 the Lutherans of Egypt formed their own church congregation. Before this it was necessary, if they wished to attend a church service of their own denomination, to make a journey of some distance. An agreement was made between the Reformed and Lutheran to build a union church. In 1764 the first church in Egypt was built near the already mentioned graves It was a log building; the seats were of logs, resting on blocks."

If such an agreement was made in 1764 for the building of a church, it has been lost, as we know nothing of it.

Rev. Daniel Schumacher, a Lutheran minister, as early as 1760, Baptized at Egypt children of John Nicholas Hertzog, George Ringer, and of Samuel Saeger, later a deacon of the Lutheran congregation, and confirmed several children, among them Mary Magdalena, daughter of Feitner, the ferryman at the Lehigh.

Your pastor and I think that as Rev. John Jacob Wissler appears to have been the first regularly appointed pastor here it is possible that there was already then, in 1752, a log church built here. He died in September, 1754. In a letter written by Rev. Stoy, dated September 30, 1757, he wrote: "The place where Domine Wissler labored, when living, has been pillaged and robbed of its inhabitants." We have no record of any persons having been killed by Indians at or near Egypt at this time, but in Heidelberg and Lynn townships, in 1756 and 1757, fifty-six persons were killed by Indians. A recently discovered draft among my papers shows a church marked where the lands of Jacob Kohler, John Troxell and Michael Kelchner come together. Kelchner took up his first warrant on July 31, 1754, so the draft must have been made after this date.

Abraham Wotring or Vautrin Was born in 1700 in Lorraine France, and in 1723 married Anna Margaret Mertz of Hangweiler in the Vosges Mountains. In 1733 they came to America. The Wotrings were millers for three hundred years on the River Saar on the borders of Alsace and Lorraine. Abraham became a miller at Hirschland and his father Abraham was a miller at Finstingen on the Saar River. Abraham located north of John Troxell's land but never had a mill here that has been located. Samnel Wotring, some relation of Abraham, later built a mill near Sand Spring on the Coplay creek and a Philip Wotring had a mill in Williams township. Abraham Wotring died in 1752. One of his daughters married John Schneider, who with three of their children, were killed by Indians in 1763, a mile north of Egypt.

Peter Troxell, whose son David was the first child baptized here, is said to have come from Switzerland and was born about 1691. The name Troxell or Drachsel is mentioned in Switzerland as early as 1367. He came to America on the ship Samuel which arrived at Philadelphia on August 17, 1733, with his wife, Juliana Catharine and two sons Peter, nine, and Daniel, seven. He lived for some years at Egypt and in 1736 is referred to in the records as church censor and in 1737 as deacon. In 1743 he purchased two tracts of 100 acres each on the Jordan creek and built a stone house, thirty by twenty-one feet, still standing, the oldest house in Lehigh County, near where the iron bridge formerly stood. Ancestors of mine, members here, were Jacob Kohler, Frederick Newhard, Daniel Roth and George Graff.

John Troxell came to America on August 30, 1737. In a list of emigrants from Zweibruecken he is mentioned as a miller from Duntzweiler. He secured land in 1737, later taken up by his son, John Peter Troxell, born in 1719, who secured more land, until he owned 410 acres. In 1756 he built the stone house still standing and in 1758 a stone barn 85 by 37 feet, torn down in 1874. In 1768 he sold this land to Peter Steckel and removed to Gwynedd township, Philadelphia County, and later to Maryland, where he died in 1799. His first wife was Anna Barbara Saeger, who died about 1750. He then married Catharine Maria Magdalena Schreiber, daughter of John Jacob Schreiber, whose mother, Anna Magdalena (Roth) Schreiber, after the death of her husband, John Jacob, in 1750 married John Peter's father, John Troxell. John Peter Troxell has many descendants in Maryland who holds an annual re-union. Another son of John Troxell was Nicholas Troxell, born in 1725, died in 1797, who remained here and is buried here but has no tombstone. His wife, however, Catharine Troxell, who died in 1777, has a stone. They are the ancestors of most of this family in this immediate vicinity.

Rev. John Daniel Gros became pastor here December 20, 1764 and served the four congregations, Egypt, Allentown, Jordan and Schlosser's, now Unionville. He reported that he found 94 members here and in 1766 thirty-one families. In 1767, the four congregations purchased a house and six acres of land in what was called "Moyer's Valley" as a parsonage. The cost was £152, Pennsylvania currency, or $345.67. Egypt's share was one-fourth or £38. In 1769 Rev. Gross wished to leave and complained about the unfitness of his dwelling, stating that it was a very poor building at a place where no wholesome water can be had, and wrote: "which to a minister in this country, who has nothing to drink but water, may be a chief cause for complaint, especially in the hot summer days, when through bad water one's health can easily be impaired." The minutes of Coetus state that the delegate from Whitehall, who was my ancestor, Peter Rhoades, of Allentown, was questioned concerning this and replied that the congregations at Whitehall were well satisfied with Domine Gros, and that they would be sorely grieved if they were forced to lose him.

Rev. Gros had a call from two large congregations at Saucon and Springfield, but stated that he would not leave unless Coetus would recommend to them in his place the first capable minister sent over from Europe. In 1770 he reported 36 families at Egypt and his salary £70, of which Egypt paid £18, 15 shillings, or $50.00. For a time he served both charges, preaching three Sundays in the Whitehall charge and the fourth Sunday in Saucon and Springfield. In 1770 he left the Whitehall charge and in 1772 complained that his congregations did not pay his salary. Because of their want of love, stubbornness, neglect of church worship and failure to pay his salary, he accepted a call to Kingston, N. Y., where he was pastor from 1773 to 1783, pastor of the German Reformed congregation in New York City from 1783 to 1795, Professor of German Languages at Columbia College, 1784 to 1795, and died in 1812. His successor was Rev. Abraham Blumer, who preached his first sermon at Egypt in February, 1771, from second Peter, first chapter, second verse: "Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord." This was his first sermon in this country. He preached his first sermon in Switzerland on September 11, 1757, and in all he preached in Europe 441 sermons. In October, 1771, he reported to the Coetus a membership at Egypt of forty families. In 1779 he reported 45 pupils in the school; in 1782, 53, and in 1785, 46 pupils. In 1785 his salary was $100.

The forty families which Rev. Blumer reported as members of the congregation in 1771, I would name as follows: Peter Burkhalter, George Jacob Kern, Jacob Kohler, Sen., Peter Kohler, Jacob Kohler, Jun., Adam Deshler, Peter Deshler, John Schad, Urlrich Flickinger, Christopher Snyder, Jacob Mickley, Sen. Jacob Mickley, Jun., Nicholas Mark, Peter Steckel, Jacob Schreiber, Jacob Flickinger, Peter Flickinger, Nicholas Alleman, Michael Newhard, Sen., Michael Newhard, Jun., Jacob Moritz, John Moritz, Nicholas Troxell, George Leibenguth, John Hoffman, Jacob Miller, George Koehler, Engelbert Hoffman, George Flickinger, Sebastian Miller, Martin Mickley, Christopher Kern, Peter Siegfried, Frederick Newhard, Peter Newhard, Philip Roth, Peter Kern, George Graff, Christian Leibenguth, and Michael Kelchner.

Rev. Blumer resigned as pastor in May, I801, after serving over thirty years. Rev. John Gobrecht succeeded him and served from I801 to 183l. Then came Rev. Joseph S. Dubs, who was pastor here from 1831 to 1868. His valuable records of marriages and burials are now owned by the congregation. He was followed by Rev. Samuel A. Leinbach, 1868 to 1884; Rev. William R. Hofford, D. D., 1884 to 1900; Rev. George P. Stem, 1901 to 1925, and the present pastor, Rev. Thomas R. Brendle.

ln the old cemetery are buried over 1200 persons, of whom more than 800 have tombstones. The oldest person buried here was Mrs. Magdalena Hoffman, aged 97 years, and the youngest a child less then a day old. The oldest stone is that of John Nicholas Meier, who died in 1775. The next oldest are those of Leonard, son of Casper Peter, who died in 1777, aged a year and a half and Mrs. Catharine Troxell, wife of Nicholas Troxell, who died in 1777, aged 49 years. There are fifteen persons, including children, buried here who were drowned, either in Coplay creek or the Lehigh.

During the past thirty-five years I have interviewed many old people about the olden times and the old families. Among them were Euphemia Kohler, born in Egypt in 1807; Aaron Kohler, born in Egypt in 1809; Stephen Freyman, born in 1810; Owen Rhoads, born in 1811; Mrs. Catharine Eberhard, nee Schreiber, born in 1812, Mrs. Peter Roth, born in 1813; William Leisenring, born in 1818, Tilghman Freyman, born in 1819; Reuben Leisenring, born in 1824; Solomon Ruch, Dr. Louis B. Balliet, and Moses Woodring. I have heard many interesting anecdotes, such as how Sibilla Leisenring, widow of Conrad Leisenring, the first, frequently paddled up the Lehigh River in a canoe and attended services at the Stone Church, how she spun flax and her son Conrad sold it in Philadelphia, and she bought a tombstone for her husband, who died in 1781. It cost $21.00, and years later John Leisenring of Mauch Chunk, had an iron fence put up around it, which a Mr. Solliday of Allentown put up. It was removed some years ago. A story about Lorenz Ruch, the strong man, whose brother had loaded a wagon with produce to go to Philadelphia, and Lorenz was not ready, so with his hands he upset the loaded wagon and by the time it was reloaded he himself was ready; of how the farmers, returning from Allentown, stopped at John Rhoads' well at Sherersville, because the horses would not drink the Allentown cistern water, of how the Burkhalter farm, later the Breinig farm, was called "King's furrow land," or "heart of Whitehall," because it was considered such fine land; of Charles Burkhalter, who wore suits of half linen, as it was called, and was called "der halb lina gentleman," went to New York, entered the wholesale dry-goods business, became a millionaire, married a Miss Havemeyer and gave a great deal to charity; of a feeble-minded resident of the township, who often slapped his knee and said, "Ha! Ha! A constitution with a vice- president"; of the year 1816 without a summer, when there was frost every month and on July 5th ice as thick as a window pane; of the drought of 1820, when all the springs ceased to flow; how one family had an old speech, when they meant taglehner they said taglahr and how one woman said her family was "so gut wie adliche." John Grob lived east of Egypt where a Troxell family later lived and has many descendants in the west, one of whom was Assistant Secretary of State under President Cleveland.

The most prominent Revolutionary patriots of Egypt were Peter Burkhalter, Peter Kohler and David Deshler. Peter Burkhalter was elected a member of the first Pennsylvania Constitutional Convention in 1776, was captain of a company in 1775, a member of the Assembly, elected in November, 1776, reelected in 1777 and in 1784, 85, 86 and 87. In 1780 he was appointed one of the Sub-Lieutenants of Northampton County, who had control of the militia of the county, which position gave him the title of Colonel. He died in 1805.

Peter Kohler opened a store here in 1764, operated a grist mill and a house of entertainment. In 1770 his brother-in-law, George Graff, was his partner in the firm of Graff and Kohler. In 1776 he became a member of the Northampton County Committee of Observation, was appointed on the committee to collect clothing for the troops on November 8, 1777, and on December l6, 1777, was appointed by the Pennsylvania Assembly one of the persons to take subscriptions for the continental loan. He was commissioned a Justice of Northampton County in 1779 and elected a member of the Assembly in 1780, 1781 and 1782. He died in 1793.

David Deshler, son of Adam Deshler, was born in Switzerland in 1734, was naturalized in 1761; in 1762 purchased a mill property from Michael Rothrock on the Little Lehigh at Allentown, where he lived for about thirty years. In 1774 he became a member of the County Committee of Observation, was a delegate to the Provincial Conference of Committees which met at Carpenter's Hall in Philadelphia on June 18, 1755, was chosen one of the judges of election at Allentown on July 8, 1776, and on March 12 1777, was elected by the Assembly one of the Sub-Lieutenants of Northampton County. He was appointed one of the Commissioners of Purchases for Northampton County in 1778; assistant Forage Master on April 5, 1780, assistant Commissary of Purchases on July 7, 1780, and 1787 a delegate to the convention to ratify the Federal constitution. He died where Catasauqua now stands and is buried here, but has no tombstone.

Peter Burkhalter and Peter Kohler have tombstones. Captain John Moritz was in command of the fourth company of the Second Battalion of Northampton County militia in 1778, under Lieutenant-Colonel Stephen Balliet. This battalion participated in the battle of Brandywine. The Second Lieutenant was Abraham Wotring, son of the first Abraham, who later removed from the county. Ensign Abraham Wotring was a son of Peter and a grandson of Abraham, the first. He removed to Maryland and later to Washington County, Pennsylvania, where he died.

Christian Leibenguth was a Corporal in this company. Privates were John Hoffman, Jacob Miller, Jacob Kohler, Peter Flickinger, Lorenz Ruch, Adam Deshler, Conrad Leisenring, George Koehler, John Grob, Frederick Newhard, Jacob Flickinger, Martin Meyer, Jacob Schreiber, Peter Newhard, who was also a gunsmith, George Flickinger and Jacob Mickley.

Adam Zerfass was Captain of a company under Lieutenant-Colonel Christian Shouse, in service in 1781. Nicholas Saeger was a Lieutenant in this company. He is buried in Allentown. Privates were Jacob Schreiber, Christian Bertsch, Peter Newhard, George Flickinger, Jacob Steckel and Henry Steckel. In 1782 Captain Zerfass was under Lieutenant-Colonel Balliet. Rev. Abraham Blumer was Chaplain. Sebastian Miller was Corporal. William Laury was a fifer. Gottfried Laury, Jacob Miller, Adam Deshler, and George Kern were privates in the company. Other soldiers from Egypt were Ensign Jacob Kern and George Gangewere, who served in the regular army in an expedition to Canada and in the militia and lived to be 95 years of age.

Men of Egypt have participated in all the wars of this country, which proves the patriotism of this community. As our forefathers of old walked with God, let us emulate them, and pray that the Grand Architect of the Universe will shower blessings upon this town and congregation.

Notes for GEORGE GANGWERE:
George Gangwere, a son of Christopher, is given in the records as born October 4, 1758. George Gangwere, of Whitehall Township, buried at Egypt, is probably this George, although his tombstone states he was born July 20, 1756. He died March 2, 1852, aged 95 years, one of the last surviving Revolutionary Soldiers. He enlisted on January 13, 1776, in Capt. Thomas Craig's company of Colonel St. Clair's Second Pennsylvania Battalion, as a fifer. The company saw service in Canada and was mustered out November 25, 1776. He subsequently served two enlistments in other companies. He kept the tavern at what is now Meyersville, married Christina, daughter of Valentine Clader, and had eight children.

Burial: Egypt Church Cemetery, Egypt, Pa.

My records list the following children for Christopher: Hanna Christina born 25 Dec 1752, baptized 23 Jan 1753 at Blue Church; Johann Jacob born 20 Feb 1754, baptized 19 May 1754 at Blue Church, also buried at Blue Church; George born 20 Jul 1756; Elizabeth born about 1761, confirmed 5 Apr 1776 at Blue Church; Sevilla born 11 Dec 1764, baptized Hecktown Lutheran Church; Daniel born 4 Aug 1766, baptized at Hecktown Lutheran Church; and David born 7 Nov 1771, confirmed 18 Apr 1790 at Blue Church. I have not been able to find the last name of Christopher's wife Catherina. I don't know if the same Lutheran minister served both the Blue Church and Hecktown Church during the mid 1760's causing the transition between the Upper Saucon and Hecktown churches.

Henry, in all probability a son of Jacob Gangewere, was born June 7, 1765, and died Nov. 2, 1849, and was buried in the burial ground ad joining the Friedensville church in Upper Saucon. He was a farmer on the old Gangewere homestead, which was divided during his lifetime, two of his sons, Solomon and John, each receiving a portion on which they built homes. Upon the part retained by Henry Gangewere and that of Solomon, iron ore beds were discovered, which were worked for many years by the Thomas Iron Company and the Bethlehem Iron Company. For the last ten years the Bingen Brick Company has been engaged in manufacturing brick from the dirt that had been washed from the ore. A part of the tract taken by John Gangewere has been cut up into building plots, and the village of Spring Valley (Saucona) has arisen. Numerous large and never-failing springs are located there. Henry Gangewere married Elizabeth Kale, born May 2, 1770, died May 27, 1826. Children: Jacob, of further mention; Tobias, born Aug. 16, 1794, died Jan. 11, 1848; Solomon, of further mention; John, of further mention; Philip, born Oct. 6, 1806, died March 18, 1881; David, born July 16, 1808, died Dec. 31, 1841; Samuel, born in 1810; Elizabeth, born Aug. 24, 1812, died March 11, 1839; Joseph; Catherine; Daniel.

Horace Gangewere, son of William, was born in North Whitehall, and spent his early days on the farm. He then learned the trade of a carpenter, and subsequently engaged in business as a butcher on North Seventh street, between Linden and Turner, in Allentown. He later became proprietor of the Lafayette Hotel, after which he kept the Rising Sun Hotel at Tenth and Hamilton streets. In later years he kept a candy and fruit store on Union street, near Eighth. He was a member of the Lutheran Church, and a Democrat in politics. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Peter Hangan, of Sigmund. He died in 1901.

-------------------------------------------------


NOTE: This is probably the Horace Gangewere who died 30 September 1899 and was born 20 January 1826 per another findagrave record. However, that record has no photo of the tombstone. The findagrave tombstone for this individual certainly seems to say 1859 (not 1899) but the dates are too similar to be coincidence for two men of the same name wifh both being married to anElizabeth. 1859 would be too early for the births of his children but 1899 would be a better fit.
I can't explain the discrepancy other than the date of death on the tombstone must be incorrect.

Storm Stressed.

Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Rau, the latter a daughter of Rev. and Mrs. 0. A. Melchoir, had a terrifying experience on Wednesday of last week. Rev. Melchoir is a graduate of Gettysburg College and Seminary and his wife was Miss Mary Montfort, of this place.
Their daughter and her husband live at Springtown and at 2 o'clock Wednesday morning an electric storm passed over their residence. The lightning struck their home and started fire in five different places, including the matterss on which they slept. The bolt entered the house along the telephone or radio wires and completely destroyed them.
Mr. and Mrs. Rau, sleeping in a front room, were awakened by the crash, and awoke to see fire dancing about their bed, while other fires were burning in several places on the woodwork of the room. Extinguishing the flames, they made an investigation of the damage done and found that the woodwork about the doors had been ripped away, a hole torn in the wall back of the bed, a bedpost completely shattered and telephone and radio wires melted. Three rooms on the first floor and two on the second floor had been visited by the lightning, which had wrought damage everywhere. Three children in a rear room were not harmed.

The Department of Public Speaking is attracting the attention of parents, and has been favorably commented upon and strongly endorsed by the mothers of the members of the graduating class. Few High School pupils have the natural ability, or experience, to speak in public, and yet this is one of the most desirable accomplishments. The work done along this line during the past season by Miss Mary Melchior, instructor in the Department of Public Speaking, is deserving of the highest praise. Members of the Freshman and Senior Classes have had weekly lessons throughout the season, and every day some members of the Sophomore, Junior and Senior Classes have appeared on the platform and taken part in the chapel exercises

130 Guests From Pa. and N. J. Met At Wolfinger Home

RECEIVED GREETINGS

Two Births, Deaths and Weddings Were Reported by Historian, Mrs. Floyd Rau-Mr. and Mrs. Samuel L. Shaddinger, Curley Hill Road, Will Entertain Reunion Next Year

Revere, Aug. 19-With Mr. and Mrs. Walter Wolfinger as their hosts, about 130 members of the Melchor family held their fifteenth annual reunion here yesterday.
Despite the rainy weather, Mr. and Mrs. Wolfinger entertained their guests who came from Easton, Bethlehem, Doylestown, Frederick and points in New Jersey in their spacious home without a difficulty. Preceding the business and literary program a bounteous supper was served in the dining room.
According to the family historian, Mrs. Floyd Rau, Springtown, two births, weddings and deaths occurred within the past year. A daughter, Arlene Emma, was born to Mr. And Mrs. John Landes, and Mr. and Mrs. Lester Fulmer reported the birth of a daughter.
One of the oldest and most venerable members of the family passed away in the person of Mrs. 0. H. Melchor, wife of the late Rev, 0. H. Melchor, well known Springtown Lutheran clergyman. A son of Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Kiser was the other death which took place.
Nuptial events were recorded when Miss Katie Worman became the bride of Clyde Beer, and Mr. and Mrs. Milton Melchor were united in marriage..
With Oliver Melchor, Ferndale. who was elected president, presiding, various committees were appointed. Miss Eveilyn Beer was chosen secretary. To serve on the program committee President Melchor appointed Mrs. Hobart Myers, Anna Melchor and Mrs. Elwood B. Melchor.
Elwood B. Melchor, Ravid (sic) Rau and Mrs Walter Wolfinger will serve on the sport's committee. Announcement was also made that Mr. and Mrs. Samuel L Shaddinger, Curley Hill Road, will entertain the clan next year on the third Thursday in August.
Greetings in which they expressed their desire to be present were received from Montfort Melchor and William Melchor, both of whom found it impossible to attend yesterday's reunion.
The business meeting opened with the entire group singing "America", followed by a prayer by Mrs. Rau. Mrs. Wolfinger, the hostess, gave a short "welcome" reading.
A song by Caroline and Helen Shull: a piano duet by Harold Landes and Richard Shaddinger; recitations by Buddy and Doris Myers, and a solo by Helen Kanusky were numbers of the program which were well received. Nine-year-old Jean Bader, gave several short exhibition dances.
Speaking briefly on the charm and spiritual value of family reunions, William Taggert urged those present, to keep up the family bonds and associations.

What Our Readers Think

Contest Editor,
Dear Sir:
Enjoying the Intelligencer as I do. there still are improvements and additions that I think would produce an even better paper.

For us old folks, as well as the new Bucks County resIdents, we do not know enough, or appreciate what we do know about our History. My late father was an active member of the Historical Society but we know so little about it today. I would suggest that about twice a week an article be written about some item on exhibit at the museum. If not too expensive, a picture would help, but I do know that is not always possible. On alternate days, or once a week, an article on some historic place in the County. Incidently the upper part of the Country is always somewhat neglected!

For your own benefit, a tour of this section with sample copies and request for subscriptions might bring results.

Request that all advertisements include both address and telephone no. would be of great help. There have been several advertisements in which I have been interested but being a widow of small income I don't feel I can afford to pay the calls to the lower part of the County when I am not sure of any resuits.

Towards spring write ups of the especially lovely rides in the County, could be of help to folks unf amiliar with our lovely places. Small pen sketches of directions could be given.

Pictures of unsightly and negIected places could be published and of course identification not given, but the caption "Do you OWN this?" Many would hustle to cut THEIR weeds and mend the fence so you WOULDN'T take a picture of their place.

I most heartily agree with an editorial printed some weeks ago that all papers would do a great service if they stopped headlining spectacular divorces and actresses that specialize in divorces.

My only real criticism of the intelligencer is that too often it misses the mail which makes my copy often TWO days late.

Although Mary Rau was the only grandparent I ever knew (her husband died in 1946 and my French grandparents both died while I was very young), I sadly know very little about her. She died in a nursing home when I was in my early twenties and living in San Antonio (August 1975).

I have fond memories of visiting her in Pennsylvania every summer. I remember the coal stove she used for cooking, the grandfather clock (my sister tells me it was a mantle clock) at the bottom of the stairs, and the freezing cold upstairs bedrooms (I must have been there during the winter as well). I remember hating the canned peas she always served but loving her scrambled eggs made with milk. Until she finally got indoor plumbing, I remember sleeping with a bedpan under the bed. When she would visit us in New Jersey, I remember her watching game shows on television (boring!) while darning our socks (much to my mother's chagrin!). My first and only train ride was with her as we travelled from New Jersey to Pennsylvania one summer.

Apparently, my mother and grandmother never got along very well and basically tolerated each other but I never knew the reason. My mother told me once, bitterly it seemed, that her mother was always 'sickly' while my grandfather was alive but seemed to miriculously improve in the years after his death. Perhaps my mother harbored some resentment over this, I do not know.

I remember she always had a beautiful yard with multiple flower beds she lovingly tended. I beleve she actually won some local awards for her flowers. Mary Rau was fairly vigorous about writing letters to the editor (see above). She was also a member of the Grange and active in flower clubs (see above).

In the year or two before she died and after I moved to San Antonio, she apparently was showing the early signs of Alzheimer's. In those days, of course, we called it "senility". I know that on at least one occasion she started herself on fire by backing up to the stove she had forgotten was lit. Sadly, she was becoming a danger to herself so my parents and her step-children, David Rau and Agnes Kline, decided to put her into a nursing home. She was there for only a few months before her death. Her minister was at her side and apparently praying with her, when she sat up, smiled, and then peacefully passed away. I assume the pastor related this to my mother who passed it on to me sometime after Mary Rau's death.

I do know that my grandmother was interested in genealogy. In fact, one of the first sources I had available to me when I started with my own genealogical efforts was from her. Like most genealogical attempts, including my own, there were some blanks and errors but it gave me a good starting point. She was extremely proud of her father, O.H. Melchior (a popular and long-serving Lutheran pastor in Bucks County, Pennsylvania), her mother (who lived in Gettysburg during the 1863 battle and who saw Abraham Lincoln give his Gettysburg Address), and her three brothers.

During the last year or so of her life, Mary Rau shared a home with an old friend (beau?) named Walter Unangst (1891 - 1982). They lived in a home in Richlandtown (near Quakertown), Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Mary Rau actually died in a nursing home after it became apparent she could no longer care for herself.

Agnes Rau Kline was a school nurse at Palisades High School in Kintnersville, Pennsylvania, for a number of years. I do not know when she started there or when she retired but I do know she was the nurse during my years at Palisades (1968 - 1971). The Doylestown Daily Intelligencer dated 16 April 1955 lists her as school nurse for the Palisades School District.

While I was painting a house in Springtown, Pennsylvania, "Aunt Agnes" is the one who came to tell me my mother had been in an accident and had been rushed to the hospital in Doylestown. During my mother's convalescence and until her death in 1982, Agnes was a source of strength for her and helped out a great deal. She moved to Florida around 1973 or 1974 and lived there for several years but returned to Pennsylvania sometime (date unknown) before my mother died.

She never remarried after her husband, Hollis, died in 1954. At some point she moved from the farm she and Hollis owned and lived in a small apartment over the Post Office in Springtown. Sometime, around 1973 or 1974, she moved to Florida but returned to Pennsylvania where she lived until her death. She may have had other residences before that time but I am not aware of them.

For a period of time in the late 1960s and early 1970s (perhaps longer), she had a "special friend" in Joseph Fink, a former elementary principal in the Palisades School District. I know very little of Mr. Fink other than he seemed nice and gave me some oil paints of his as a starter kit for my art box.

I have only the fondest memories of her - a sweet, dear lady.

MISS AGNES RAU BECAME BRIDE OF HOLLIS KLINE

Popular Resident of Springtown Wedded in Durham Church on Saturday

Springtown, Nov. 8-Miss Agnes Isabel Rau, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Rau of this place, became the bride of Hollis Kline, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Kline, Kintnersviile, at a pretty wedding Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock in the Durham church. The Rev. H. S. Rhoads, the bride's pastor, read the service. An organ recital by Wilmer Hindenach preceded the playing of the Lohengrin and Mendelssohn wedding marches. Autumn leaves and chrysanthemums adorned the church.
The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was becomingly gowned in white satin, with veil of tulle caught at the sides with orange blossoms. She carried white chrysanthemums.
Miss Gladys Myers, Bethlehem, and Miss Anna Melchior, Springtown, cousins of the bride, were the bridal attendants, They wore gowns of maroon and green velvet, respectively, with matching turbans, and carried bronze chrysanthemums.
David Rau, brother of the bride, was best man. William Witte and Russell Hess, Riegelsville, were ushers.
After a reception held at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kline left on a southern wedding trip by motor. They will make their home on the Kline grape farm at Kintnersville.
The bride is well known in Bethlehem, having graduated from St. Luke's Hospital Training School with the class of 1931, after her graduation from Springfield High School.

General Notes:

[Source: 1930 US Federal Census, http://www.ancestry.com]

There was a Hollis "Kleine" who was living with his parents and a younger brother during the 1930 census. Hollis was probably the son of John (age 65, farmer) and Eliza Kleine (age 63) who were living in Nockamixon Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania on property valued at $18,000 in 1930. Hollis, age 28, was living with them as well as a younger son, Larue, age 19. Hollis and LaRue were listed as farm helpers, probably their father's farm. The future wife of Hollis (if this is our Hollis), Agnes Rau, was still living with her parents, Floyd and Mary (stepmother) Rau during the 1930 census. Their daughter, Joanne, was born in 1933 so I would surmise that Hollis and Agnes married between 1930 and 1933.

Henry Hannam thinks that Hollis possibly died from the bite of a poisonous insect or spider at the fruit stand where he used to deliver asparagus. Henry (Hank) thinks it may have been a spider found on bananas from South America and that he died within a day or two after the bite. However, he was not positive about the cause of death.

General Notes:

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., updated 11 March 2009]

Born a little more than a month after the Bolshevik execution of Tsar Nicholas and his family and shortly before the end of World War I, Mary Katharyn Rau (Buckley) (Hannam) lived her entire life in a world threatened by Communism As a young child, she lived through the Roaring Twenties, Prohibition and the Great Depression. However, living in a rural Pennsylvania setting, she was probably little affected by either. As a young adult, she witnessed Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal and as a young mother, the horrors of World War II. She also saw the Korean War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Vietnam War, the moon landing, the resignation of Richard M. Nixon and the Falklands War. Through it all, she remained a devout Christian wife and mother. She raised her family as members of the Methodist Church even though she herself had been raised a Lutheran. Her grandfather, Oliver H. Melchior, was a beloved Lutheran pastor in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She lived long enough to see several of her grandchildren (Henry's three children, Benjamin, Matthew and Sarah Hannam; Becky's son, Justin Thomas; and Christy's first child, Sarah Wright) but not long enough to see the collapse of the Soviet Union or the Gulf War. Nor, thankfully, did she live long enough to witness the shenanigans of Bill Clinton and his lovely wife! Sadly for my own children, she had already been dead over three years before the birth of my first son, John-Pierre Hannam, Jr.

First married to Henry Albin Buckley--father of her first son, Henry (born 23 December 1941). According to Mary Susanna Melchior Rau, Katharyn and Henry divorced, remarried, and then divorced again. Anecdotes and periodic family conversations indicate that her first husband was abusive to her and Henry and was probably an alcoholic.

Katharyn married Pierre Hannam on 14 February 1953 but they also claimed to have been married in October 1952 in Maryland. This fluidity of their marriage date probably had something to do with my birth on 6 August 1953 (you do the math)! In a letter to me dated sometime before 14 February 1978, Katharyn "fessed up" and told me the true story (see the excerpt from this letter under Marriage Notes for Pierre and Katharyn).

Katharyn (called by some people Kitty) died on 22 May 1982 due to complications of her hospitalization at St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem. She had been in an accident in May 1972 in which she lost one kidney and was paralyzed for life. She almost died but was "brought back" in the emergency room at Doylestown hospital. For the rest of her life, she was a quadriplegic with total loss of her legs and almost total loss of her arms (she could type with one finger, move her arms, talk, etc.) but she was essentially confined to her home -- with occasional outings -- in the last years of her life. She was hospitalized at St. Luke's in 1982 for (initially) kidney dialysis. However, as her stay progressed, things got worse (due to lousy care and medical incompetence?). She got an infection, had to be placed on a respirator and other life support equipment, had her pericardium removed due to the infection (for a while she was in isolation) and finally died of cardiac arrest. My father, Pierre, and my sister (Christianne) informed her doctors that she had made a living will instructing that no "heroic" measures be taken to save her. Consequently, she was allowed to slip away.

According to an entry in Floyd Rau's New Indexed Bible (Revised Edition), Mary Katharyn Rau was educated at Springfield High School in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. While a junior high school teacher at Bridgeton Junior High School in Bridgeton, New Jersey, she studied at Glassboro State College (presumably to receive her Master's Degree). In the mid-1960s, she had breast cancer but survived it. She was a well-loved schoolteacher in Pennsylvania from 1968 until her accident in May of 1972.


A number of her devoted friends and neighbors (Leah Kneebone, Laura Momich, Patty Murphy and many others) spent countless hours helping out at our home (bathing her, cleaning, cooking, visiting, etc.) for a number of years until her death. God bless them all for their tireless efforts to make her life more comfortable. Through it all, she was stoic and heroic, or pretended to be, and seldom shed a tear for her own plight. I still miss her after more than twenty-five years.

Twenty-one Palisades reading tutors and aides, accompanied by Philip Swayne and Katharyn Hannam, administrative members, visited the Beaver College Reading Clinic.
The clinic is operated by Dr. Adeline Gomberg, professor of education and director of the reading clinic and serves as a training school for her senior education students.
The tutors observed Dr. Gomberg as she conducted her clinic, using specially selected students from the Philadelphia public schools.
Since Palisades is deeply involved in an individualized reading tutor program, the methods and media used by Dr. Gomberg were studied and evaluated with interest.
At present, reading aides and tutors are working individually with 124 students meeting them from two to five times weekly.

Helping the survivor
'Write about these wonderful women who care for me'

By KATHY CLARK
Intelligencer Writer

Tragedy strikes unexpectedly and without reason, either ending a life or shattering it beyond repair. We read now and then of the accident victim who survives, what has happened to his life, the courage he has shown, the spirit.
But what of the other lives that have touched, are touching or will touch the victim of a tragic accident? How does it affect them?
In the case of Katharyn Hannam, an Upper Bucks woman who was almost a statistic, a holiday fatality, tragedy has brought great pain and sadness to those who love the bright and spirited woman, but it has brought also a richness of feeling, a tenderness and a deeper appreciation for almost everything.
More than seven years ago Katharyn Hannam left her home in rural Springtown to attend a Memorial Day parade in Ferndale. It was the last time she was to walk out of that house or any other. When the returned to it months later it was as a paralytic, the victim of a devastating accident.
The mother of four who also taught fifth and sixth grade language arts at Springfield Elementary School had been busy preparing a picnic luncheon for her daughter Becky's 16th birthday party to go to see the Palisades High School Band perform in the holiday parade.
She called goodby to her husband Pierre who was bent over the green shoots in the garden outside the old farmhouse that snuggles against Route 212. In a very short time she lay trapped under the tire of a car, her spine crushed, never to walk again - indeed, perhaps not to live.
The doctors at Doylestown Hospital revived her twice when her heart stopped beating. When Pierre arrived at the hospital they would not even let him see her and they gave him no hope for her survival.
Survive she has, though, and if her body is imprisoned, it is obvious that per mind and spirit are not. There is a very special quality about the woman who welcomes so many visitors to the bed-sitting room on the first floor of her 150-year-old farmhouse, once her grandfather's home.
Gray bangs fringe her round face and dance above her fiery brown eyes as she pronounces most emphatically, "I am not an invalid. That's one thing you've got to get straight. I can't walk, I can't use my fingers. I've got a urinary diversion. I'm a paralytic, but I'm NOT sick."
There is something of the general in her tone. What could have been a sickbed has become a command post.
"There are two things that helped me adjust to this life - sublimation and compensation" she says. "You must remember every single thing I loved and wanted to do, I can't do anymore - oh, I can read, but that's the only thing.
"I've learned to channel my energies into different directions. My life was so full of activity. I was so busy I didn't really spend too much time with people, but now people have taken the place of my gardening."
"Don't write about me," she says. "Write about these wonderful women who care for me. Two of them, Louisa Gerenser and Marjorie Werkheiser are here now.
"Marjorie," says Katharyn, " was one of my first pupils. She also is my shopper, my alter ego.
"Louisa has never worked for money in her life before this. She is a woman of the earth - as I am - she delights in growing things.
"And Patty Murphy, Louisa's niece, isn't yet 20. She started as a little girl, giving me showers, doing all the intimate things. She still comes in on weekends. And Patty's mother, Ann helps, too.
"Laura Momich was with me when the accident happened. She believes it was meant to be. She feels she was spared in order to help take care of me."
There are other women who help and most of them live within a few miles of the Hannam house. The Hannams pay them all to come in a few hours a day to care for Katharyn. Her physical needs are many since she is paralyzed to just under the arms. Her bathroom is specially equipped and a lift is used to move her from her bed.
Marjorie and Louisa sit companionably in Katharyn's dining room. They talk softly, Marjorie somewhat reticently, and Louisa, eagerly, about Katharyn, Tears spill often from their eyes, but they are as often tears of admiration and tenderness as they are of sadness.
What do they do for Katharyn? Whatever they have to do - they bathe her in her special shower, they do range-of-motion exercises, they dress her.
"She's not in bed because she's sick," explains Marjorie. "She's in bed because it's more convenient for her to be in bed.
"She gets out of bed and into her wheelchair for the afternoon and evening when the evening lady comes." The evening lady, Iona Unangst, drives over from New Jersey every day. She also cooks dinner for Katharyn and Pierre.
"Katharyn taught me in the first and second grade at the old West Springfield School," adds Marjorie. "She was always as spirited as she is now. She listens to our problems, but she doesn't tell her own - ever.
"What a horrible adjustment it was for her - but she's a very religious woman. I think she figures God gave her a life and evidently He isn't finished with her. I think she wonders what He wants of her.
"All of her children were here then. I shouldn't say this, I guess, but maybe the kids would still be here if she hadn't sent them off to live their own lives. She definitely is an inspiration - I don't think you could feel any other way."
"Katharyn," says Louisa, "has worked out a system. She conducts everything from her bed and everything moves along smoothly. Last year, on her 60th birthday, instead of having a party for herself, she gave the ladies a party. There were, I think 17 of us, all of whom have worked here at some time or other since the accident. She organized everything from her bed. It was fantastic."
"I'm glad she was here at home when it happened. At least here she can be with her friends. She and Pierre lived in New Jersey for years. They had a store there and it was burned down twice, I think, during some racial strife. Here, though, she says she can look out the window and look across the same fields she knew as a child. I think that gives her strength.
"But all of us, we come here and work and we get to talking about our problems and we tell her. She never complains. She's always cheerful. We get so much more here than we can give."
And Patty Murphy. Why does she, at 19, high school graduate who works in a jewelry store, spend part of her weekends with her former teacher?
"I just like to," says Patty, who has helped out at the Hannam house since Katharyn first came home from the hospital.
"It sounds strange to say, I know, but now it's fun. She's such a fantastic person. She has changed very much since the beginning. During the past three years she's been excellent, I would say - always cheerful."
Patty's mother, Ann Murphy, too, has worked at Hannam's for four years. That time has been inspiring for her. She says, "I went from seeing the woman she was before, a teacher and real active."
"Seeing how she coped with her problems has made me think she is a great woman. She won't allow anyone to volunteer to help. She insists on paying. That gives her a certain sense of independence," she believes.
Laura Momich of Springtown is another of Katharyn Hannam's ladies. She worked at the Hannam home every day for five years. Now she has an ailing father to care for and only fills in when Katharyn needs her.
She was with Katharyn the day of the accident. Katharyn's daughters and Laura's older daughter were marching with the Palisades band and the women had driven down in separate cars to attend the memorial ceremony and see the band perform.
Laura says, "I've re-lived it again and again and again - and it's always the same." Although it has been seven years, she buries her curly dark head in her hands and her shoulders shake with sobs. She regains her composure, apologizes, "It's almost as though it were meant to be. 'Why was I spared?' I always ask myself.
"Katharyn was going home to bake Becky's birthday cake. She walked one way around the band and my daughter and I went on the other side of the band.
"We had to walk in the ditch and there was poison ivy and I thought maybe we should have gone the other way.
"The accident happened then and I saw this ball of blue lying there. It' was Katharyn and I didn't know it. I decided to move away from there because the ambulance would be coming and we walked further down the road and I saw Katharyn's car and I looked for her and I started to get uncomfortable. I hadn't noticed what she'd been wearing. Then I got really worried and a neighbor man was there and he asked if I wanted him to go see if it was her.
"Then I didn't know what to about the girls. The band was getting ready to go down to Ottsville so I got the girls and I drove to Doylestown Hospital. I drove real slow because I didn't want to get there. I was sure she was dead.
"We waited and waited and waited and the doctors wouldn't say anything. Finally, they sent us home. Pierre stayed.
"I didn't see her again until she was out of intensive care. She was in the hospital for weeks and weeks. She still has the marks of the wheels on her body.
"Then when she came home I'd go there every day to help. At first her younger daughter did everything here but Katharyn and Pierre didn't like that. They said she had her own life to lead and they worked out this thing of paying the ladies to come in to help.
"When I first started to work there, I'd go in one morning and we'd both cry the whole time I was there. The next day things would be more cheerful and the next day we'd cry again.
"I don't know how she's managed. She must have worked it out in her own mind in the darkness of night.
"The school had a country fair to raise money for her - they raised thousands. They went back to her the next year and wanted to it again and she said no, there were others who needed help. The Springtown Volunteer Fire Co. then took over the fair and they've held it every year since, but it all started with Katharyn. She's even brought the community together.
"She is so organized, she can tell you exactly what's in her freezer at any given moment. Me? I do my own shopping and I don't know what's in mine.
"Pierre is an exceptional man. He loves her so much and he's stuck right with her through everything. I know I couldn't have learned to cope the way Katharyn has and I doubt my husband would have been as strong, as faithful as Pierre."
"What can I say?" questions Pierre as he raises his hands in a typical Gallic gesture. He has the hearty complexion and pleasant accent of his native Alsace-Lorraine.
"I came to this country in 1951 … speak about that. Katharyn was married before, too. She had a son. We came together. We married. We had a son and two daughters.
"That day," he shakes his head, "she went out to the parade. Later my brother-in-law came for me. He said, 'Come, Pierre, we go to the hospital.' 'What for?' I asked him. I did not know anything." The pain, the horror, still show in his eyes.
He closes them and says, "She is wonderful woman. She's unbelievable. She never complains and it has been so difficult. "How do I have the strength? I don't know. I just have it. Some men would bolt, would run. I stay."
Katharyn is as proud of Pierre as he is of her. "He was deeply hurt by all this and he carries his hurt with him, but we have both come to a stage of acceptance." she says.
Katharyn makes tapes for shut-ins and they are distributed through several churches. With the tapes, she says, "I try to make people realize how many great things they've got going for them. It's my philosophy that you may be shut in but you're not shut out."
She enjoys visits with her children. Henry is married and living in Virginia. Jean-Pierre lives in Texas and is a student at the University of San Antonio. Christianne is a nurse at the University of Penn. Becky, who also is married, lives in Easton.
Katharyn's greatest personal joy, though, comes from her grandsons. There are three of them and she can hold them in her arms, hug them and caress them.
"They've really made everything worthwhile," she says with tears in her eyes. "We're a very close-knit family - there's so much love.
"There is a lot of beauty in tragedy," she says thoughtfully and softly. "Beauty and strength."

Memorial Day Tribute to [Katharyn Hannam]

May 24, 2014 at 6:23 PM 2 comments

When we think about Memorial Day we picture fighting men and women in uniform courageously doing what it takes to protect their countries, their families, their comrades. We think about war and the people who have fought in wars and the people who have died in wars. But, as each of you know personally, there are many different kinds of soldiers engaged in many different kinds of wars. You each, every one of you dear souls reading this, has suffered your own traumas, fought your own battles, endured your own losses and emerged scarred, wounded, battle-weary and resolute '97 victorious would be greatly over-stating it. No one wins in a war. Every one looses something. On the other hand, each of you joining me here has also gained many things from what you have endured. (STOP IT RIGHT NOW: I CAN HEAR SOME OF YOU DISQUALIFYING YOURSELVES, SAYING YOU DIDN'T SUFFER ENOUGH TO BE INCLUDED. ONCE AGAIN, I HAVE TO ASK YOU TO RE-READ THE INTRODUCTION OF THE MANY FACES OF PTSD. Do you remember? Do not compare your trauma to that of anyone else. It doesn't matter if the elephant is standing on your little toe or your whole foot. For those of you who are very literal, let me explain that the elephant represents the trauma. PLEASE. I BEG YOU. STOP COMPARING.)

So, in honor of those who have fought more personal wars, I dedicate this blog to Aunt Kitty. Let me tell you a small part of her story:

Forty-two years ago this weekend Kathryn Hannam, my beloved Aunt Kitty, was hurrying home from having watched her sixteen year old daughter, Becky, the youngest of her four children, march in a Memorial Day Parade. Extended family and friends were celebrating Becky's birthday that afternoon with a great, happy picnic. As Aunt Kitty sprinted up a hill in her hurry to get home for the party, an elderly woman lost control of her car, running Kathryn over and dragging her. It was a horrific accident. Aunt Kitty died three times on the way to the hospital. For weeks it was touch and go. Family, friends, her husband, Pierre, and her four children, as well as the entire eastern Pennsylvania community and Aunt Kitty's church family were traumatized right along with her, stopped breathing every time she stopped, and rejoiced with each positive step toward life. I can tell you without a doubt in my mind, that only Aunt Kitty could have fought back from this massive trauma. To say she was a tough cookie would be so mild. She was a woman of incredible strength and resolve and determination. I vividly remember my dad, her older brother, calling me to tell me of this tragedy and my simply crumbling down along the nearest wall in horror and disbelief.

When, after six months or so, she had progressed as far as possible, Aunt Kitty found herself a quadriplegic. She had no use of either of her legs or either of her arms. That did not stop her indomitable spirit, nor did it stop her family and community from stepping in and doing everything possible for her. A downstairs room was made into a bedroom and a handicapped-accessible bathroom was added, and home she came to the house that that always comforted her. The house had belonged to her maternal grandparents and after years living elsewhere, she had brought her family back to Bucks County and been fortunate enough to purchase the very home that had meant everything to her when she was a child.

I have a million Aunt Kitty stories to tell you about the ten years in which she lay in that hospital bed looking out over the countryside she so loved and guiding and prodding and encouraging and cherishing those around her. Her church family found a routine in which every night of the week someone from this tiny, country church would come to start supper and clean a bit and talk to her. Her husband and children were ORDERED by her to go on with their lives, and they did, all the while comforting her with their presence and enlarging her world with their outside lives.

My mom told me about a blizzard one winter. My dad was at a meeting and my mom was home alone and apparently Aunt Kitty was home alone, too, in her hospital bed in that downstairs room. The wind was howling and the snow was white needles slicing the air sidewise when the front door blew open. After enduring it for as long as she could, Aunt Kitty called my mom and asked her to drive the mile or so to close the door. My mom said it was the only time, in those ten soul-testing years, that she had ever seen Aunt Kitty cry.

I remember a day when I was visiting with my three little boys. Aunt Kitty's older sister was there also. We were all out in front of the house and the dog house was there, too. My kids had never seen a doghouse and were fascinatedly crawling in and out, pretending to be dogs. Aunt Agnes told them to stop, that it was dirty and germy. Aunt Kitty said, "Oh, Agnes, let them play. They're children."

Aunt Kitty told me that for the first two years after the accident, she prayed for the use of her arms and hands. She didn't so much mind the wheelchair. That she could tolerate. After two years of seemingly unanswered prayer, she decided God must have another plan, and she started praying to accept her life the way it was. Everything changed for her then, I believe. The last eight years of her life were, as far as I know, truly satisfying and fulfilling for her. This formerly vibrant and active fifth grade teacher metamorphosed into the village counselor. You simply did not go past that house without seeing that someone had stopped to talk to Kathryn. She was always in. And she had always been a wise woman, but she became a wiser, more spiritual, more patient, more engaged woman. Perhaps because she, too, needed the interaction, people stopping to talk to her became not an interruption, as they might have been in her former, busy life, but a delight.

Aunt Kitty could easily be a book and is impossible to reduce to a blog. BUT, you get the idea. She is my personal inspiration when I think about a soldier, someone who has fought an impossible battle. I know each of you has inspirations, too. What I think you may not realize, is that each of you is an inspiration to me.

Blessings, susan

Don't forget '97 next week something exciting is going to be added here.

Marriage Notes:

[Source: Typewritten letter from Katharyn Hannam to Cathy and John-Pierre Hannam, undated but probably written shortly before 14 February 1978]

... On Feb 14th we celebrate our 25th anniversary. To us it is great because it is a miracle I am alive... and very healthy right now. I am amazed at how thrilled Dad is. There are to be NO gifts. The girls did want an open house but you know Dad and company! So we will have his favorite quiet dinner at home.

Now that you're a "big boy" I will set the record straight. We were "married" on June 8, 1951; we lived together (with Grandma and Henry) until his divorce was final in Nov. '52. We were told (erroneously) that we had to wait 3 months for remarriage. So we set our religious ceremony for Feb 14th and then conceived you about the second week in Nov. After living together for 1 and 1/2 years I hardly think you were a baby born in anything but love and desire. Also we were in our 30's. We regret only that we couldn't have started out young together; we are both against divorce...

Noted events in their marriage were:

• Marriage Fact: 88 Melchior Genealogy (M.S. Rau) - Pierre & Katharyn married 16 Nov 1952

• Death of One Spouse: 22 May 1982. St. Luke's Hospital, Bethlehem, Northampton, Pennsylvania

• Officiant: 14 Feb 1953, Quakertown, Bucks, Pennsylvania. Edmund E. Bieber, Minister of the Gospel

General Notes:

[Source: The Hannam Genealogy, compiled by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr.]

Pierre Hannam died in September 1995 in Pfastatt, France of lung cancer. He was living with his third wife (religious ceremony), Denise Lechleiter Grun, at the time.

Pierre was born in France, served briefly in the French army during World War II, then spent the remainder of the war in Switzerland after the French were defeated. He came to the United States (Texas) in the early 1950's where he stayed with or worked for a friend. Pierre migrated to Pennsylvania where he met Katharyn Rau Buckley who was working as a waitress in a Quakertown restaurant. Pierre and Katharyn later married and had three children. From 1953 until June 1968, they lived in Bridgeton, New Jersey. Pierre originally owned and operated a store, Hannam's Sundry Shop, where he sold cosmetics and other 'sundry' items and operated a soda fountain. This store was on South Avenue (Pierre and his family lived in an apartment over the store). Later, he moved the store to Southeast Avenue in Bridgeton. Toward the end, Pierre converted the store to a pinball and pool table operation. During the riots of the 1960s, the store was burned. Since his business had been failing for some time, Pierre took a job as a radio host at WSNJ-AM. His evening show, quite popular with the ladies due to his French accent, was called 'Potluck with Pierre'. Finally, he and Katharyn decided to leave Bridgeton (due to a declining neighborhood and constant racial tensions) and purchased the ancestral home of Katharyn's grandparents, Oliver Hoffman Melchior and Mary Elizabeth Montfort, from Mrs. Elmer Markley (widow). Katharyn's mother, Mary Susannah Melchior Rau (widow), lived across the road.

Pierre worked first at Fretz's (a clothing manufacturer) in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Then he got a job with the Pennsylvania Turnpike where he worked as a tollbooth operator until his medical retirement in the late 1970s or early 1980s. After his wife, Katharyn, died in 1982, Pierre decided to return to France where he eventually married the widow of his nephew, Raymond Grun. He and Denise lived in her home in Pfastatt, France, until his death from lung cancer in September 1995.

In his better years, Pierre was quite athletic. Apparently, he played soccer as a youth in France. While in Bridgeton, he played for several years on a local softball team. Throughout his stay in Bridgeton and for awhile in Pennsylvania, Pierre was an excellent table tennis (ping pong) player and had a large collection of championship trophies to prove it. As a child, I remember him showing off by doing handstands and walking across the living room (or back yard) on his hands. I remember being quite impressed by the fact that he could throw a ball so high that it appeared to disappear before returning to earth where he would (usually) catch it. At some point in the 1950s when I was very young, Pierre was injured in a plane crash. He also hurt his back when he accidentally fell through the ceiling of his store.

His favorite pasttimes included listening to the Philadelphia Phillies on the radio or watching them on television, watching old horror movies (Karloff, Lugosi, etc.), and working in his garden and yard in Pennsylvania.

Social Security records give Pierre's date of birth as 12 April 1918 but we (his children) were always told he was born 12 April 1919. I suspect this may have had something to do with the transfer of Alsace (including his hometown of Mulhouse) from Germany back to France at the Treaty of Versailles (28 June 1919). My father, Pierre, was always fiercely loyal to France and, I suspect, he considered it his misfortune to have been born (whether in 1918 or 1919) in German territory but which the French always considered to be French!.

NOTE: According to the Manifest of In-Bound Passengers (from Le Havre, France, 12 January 1951 and arrived New York, New York, 18 January 1951), Pierre Hannam, age 32, arrived WITH his wife, Cecile Hannam, age 30. Pierre gave as his destination "General Delivery, Ardmore, Oklahoma". I was always under the impression that Pierre and Cecile had been divorced before he arrived in the U.S. but this is apparently NOT the case.

Update: I recently came across a letter from my mother, Katharyn Hannam, in which she stated that Pierre and Cecile did not get divorced until November 1952.

Employee honored for designing museum Web site
By Lisa R. Rhodes Staff writer
Posted 10/27/05

When John-Pierre Hannam received a phone call at home from his boss, David Rose, director of the Directorate of Logistics (DOL), on the night of Oct. 3, he was not sure what to think.

"He doesn't call me very often," said Hannam, a logistics management specialist at DOL, explaining that when he usually receives a call from his boss at home, it's a snowy night and he is getting notice not to come in to work the next day. Hannam said he hoped the phone call wasn't news of a terrorist attack, requiring him to come into work to handle an emergency crisis. "But it was nice news. Very pleasant news," he said.
Rose asked Hannam to attend the weekly garrison management meeting the next morning. There, Hannam received a plaque of appreciation from the Fort Meade Museum Historical Foundation and a $100 gift certificate for his work on the Fort Meade Museum's Web site.

"I was just pleasantly surprised. I wasn't expecting anything. I appreciate the thought and the recognition," said Hannam, who designed the museum's Web site in the spring of 2001 and since then has periodically updated the site.

Robert Johnson, director of the Fort Meade Museum, said the work Hannam has done is "outstanding."

Hannam designed the museum's Web site after former Installation Commander Col. Michael J. Stewart sent out a directive in early 2001 for all directorates to have their own Web site. He'd designed the DOL Web site and gotten so many compliments, the commander asked him to design a Web site for the museum. Hannam, who has an associate's degree in commercial art and once worked as an Air Force photographer, was glad to comply.

"I was very fortunate," said Hannam, saying former DOL Director Lynn Sasser, also a member of the museum board of directors, approved of the project and allowed him to take time during work hours to design the site. Sasser also purchased additional computer software to aid with the design.

Johnson said the museum did not have anyone on staff with the skills to design the site, so Hannam's work is "greatly appreciated." The museum now receives a lot of inquiries about its exhibitions and archives, in part due to the user-friendly accessibility of the site. Hannam said easy accessibility was his goal in designing the Web site, saying people will then visit the museum for further research.

Hannam, who has taken a course in HTML (hypertext markup language) design at a community college to help him design Web pages, consulted with Johnson and Barbara Taylor, exhibits specialist, before going forward with the design. The site features historical photographs of tanks, uniforms, helicopters and memorial headstones, as well as a historical timeline and special event coverage on prisoners of war and Memorial Day activities.

Hannam and Johnson are now talking about redesigning the Web site in the near future, to include more interesting graphics and an updated, modern look. "Now I can't wait to add new content," said Hannam, saying recognition for his Web design skills has sparked new motivation for his work for the museum.

Labels and the Libertarian
By John-Pierre M.Hannam Sr.
Lantern Lit Contributor

Labels! Labels! Labels everywhere! As humans, we seem to have a penchant for labeling things. Christian-Jew-Muslim-Atheist. Black-White-Hispanic. Straight-gay-asexual. Married-single-separated. Rich-poor-middle class. Male-female. French-German-Mexican-Asian-African American. Republican-Democrat-Libertarian. Conservative-liberal-moderate. I could go on and on but you get the idea. We all do it. We put labels on things - especially on people - even if we don't consciously do so. In some ways, assigning labels helps us to categorize and make sense of the world around us.
Sadly, our tendency to put labels on others often leads to alienation, hostility, and even hatred. It sets us apart from each other. When people are different from us, we tend to judge them. And this, alas, is seldom good.
One label to which I gladly subscribe is 'Christian'. I'm not a very good Christian, but I want to be and try to be. One thing Jesus said was, 'Judge not, lest ye be judged.' He also said, 'Do to others what you would want them to do to you.' You may know this as the Golden Rule. Most religions have similar guidelines. Personally, I think it's a good philosophy whether you are Christian or not. I wish more people would observe these simple 'rules' because our world would be a much nicer place in which to live.
Another label to which I grudgingly subscribe is 'libertarian'. Not Libertarian as in the political party, but libertarian as in the philosophy. People who subscribe to this philosophy are no better or worse than anyone else. We are all human and imperfect. The big difference, in my view, is that libertarians try to observe the Golden Rule even if they don't necessarily recognize that they are doing so. In a nutshell, we believe in 'live and let live'.
As a libertarian, I may not agree with something you do but I think you have every right to do it as long as you don't harm anyone else in the process. As a Christian, I believe God ultimately will judge each and every one of us. In the meantime, please try to refrain from judging me or the person next to you. If you smoke, that is your right as long as you don't blow it in my face. If you drink, that is your right as long as you don't get in your car and endanger others. If you gamble, that is your right as long as you don't starve your children in the process. I may not like the music you listen to, but you have every right to play it as long as you don't keep me awake at three in the morning. If you don't like guns, that is your right but don't try to infringe my right to own one. Again, I could go on and on. Just because you like or dislike something, you have no right to try to impose your feelings and beliefs - your likes and dislikes - on me.
My biggest problem with politicians - yes, mostly Democrats and Republicans - is that they try to change ME and YOU through legislation and taxes. Democrats don't like cigarettes or liquor so they try to tax it out of existence while salivating over the extra money those taxes bring. Republicans try to change moral behavior by imposing their beliefs on others. Most of them - Democrat and Republican alike - ignore the very Constitution that forms the basis for this nation. All of them ignore their oaths to uphold the Constitution. Every last one of them ignores the Golden Rule.
Sometimes it's really hard to label our politicians because they don't even bother to follow the principles of their own respective parties. Hence, we have labels such as 'RINO' (Republican-in-name-only) and 'blue-dog Democrats' who tend to be more conservative in some of their political outlooks. In some respects, it's good that they don't follow the party-line in lockstep but it also tends to blur the differences between them.
In fact, I see very little difference between the Republicans and the Democrats these days. It's tweedle-dee and tweedle-dum when it comes to our choices at the polls. Have you ever noticed how politicians scramble to be the tweedle-dumbest?
Seriously, it really bothers me that our president and legislators have no qualms about sending our young men and women into harm's way. They think nothing of 'spreading democracy' to other less-enlightened countries by spending our national wealth in terms of dollars and lives. We send billions of dollars each year to foreign dictators knowing all the time that none of that money actually goes to the people in need. We blithely send cruise missiles and drones to obliterate houses and towns on the off-chance we might actually kill a terrorist or two. If we kill a few women and children in the process, we ask, 'So what?' We call it 'collateral damage' and go on our way. That latest episode of 'Survivor' beckons! I might fall behind in my Facebook game so let me get to it. Meanwhile, our brave soldiers are on the ground all over the world, sent there basically to serve as targets for those who hate us. And when those brave young men and women come back with missing arms and legs or mental issues, the same politicians who sent them turn their cowardly heads and ignore them.
Libertarians, in general, are not 'isolationists' as some Republicans like to call them. Instead, most of us try to rely on the Constitution which limits the federal government to protecting our borders and our security and very few other things. We tend to be 'non-interventionist' unless our national security is directly threatened. When it is, watch out! The United States is the most powerful nation on earth and can and should use its might to defend our own country and our allies. We should use our military might then, and only then. We should not, and cannot, be the policemen of the world.
Libertarians are also wrong on some issues - like abortion - in my opinion. Democrats, who tend to be more 'liberal', support abortion and by so doing pander to women. Republicans, who are only slightly more 'conservative' than Democrats, generally oppose abortion and by so doing pander to the religious right. Libertarians are all over the board on abortion but tend to believe it is an issue that should be decided by each state. I don't know about your state government, but mine is run by idiots and I have no faith in them to make a sensible decision. Personally, I oppose abortion because it flies in the face of that libertarian principle of 'do no harm'. I personally believe abortion is murder. The same people who pass laws making suicide illegal or who oppose the death penalty, blindly support a woman's 'right to choose'. I have a different take on it. A murderer makes a choice to harm another and, when properly convicted by a jury of his peers, deserves the death penalty. Likewise, suicide is a personal choice. I personally believe it is a sin but only God can judge. Who am I to say that a person suffering intractable pain from cancer is wrong to end his suffering early? In the case of abortion, I say let the baby decide. If the baby says, "It's okay with me", then go ahead and have the abortion. Without that explicit permission, you are doing harm to another where you have no right to do so. This is one area libertarians and I diverge.
So, folks, how about we just try to live our lives and stop worrying about what other people are doing? Your sins are no better or worse than my sins. They are just different sins. And, ultimately, whether you choose to believe it or not, God will have the final say. And that is my take on things - whether you want to label me 'libertarian' or something else.

UM Student Selected for Prestigious Truman Scholarship

Junior Phillip Hannam has been selected as a 2008 Truman Scholar.

College Park, Md.--University of Maryland junior Phillip Hannam has been awarded a Truman Scholarship, the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation announced this week. Before speaking to a group of prospective students and parents, Hannam was given the news by University of Maryland President C.D. Mote, Jr.

"The University is very proud that Phillip Hannam has been selected as a Truman Scholar," said Mote. "He is a talented young man who has demonstrated commitment to public service through his leadership in the Maryland chapter of Engineers Without Borders. His qualifications fit perfectly with the goals of the Truman Scholars program."

Hannam is one of 65 students from 55 U.S. colleges and universities selected on the basis of leadership potential, intellectual ability, and likelihood of 'making a difference.' Truman Scholars are chosen by a selection panel, which typically include a university president, a federal judge, a distinguished public servant and a past Truman Scholar.

The $30,000 merit-based scholarship is presented each year to college juniors, from across the country, who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and wish to attend graduate school in preparation for careers in government or public service.

Hannam, a mechanical engineering major in the A. James Clark School of Engineering, has been an active member of Engineers Without Borders since his freshman year and currently serves as the Burkina Faso solar water pumping project leader. He is also a member of the Gemstone Program, a multidisciplinary four-year research program for selected undergraduate honors students of all majors. Hannam, through several student groups, has also worked to raise awareness of climate change and clean energy on campus. After graduating from Maryland in 2009, he plans to pursue dual master's degrees in mechanical engineering and public policy.

"To be selected amongst some of the finest aspiring public servants in the country is an immense honor," said Hannam. "Meeting fellow leaders throughout the Truman process gives me faith in our collective ability to overcome challenges, while also giving me faith in my own abilities. I am forever thankful to my friends and family for their support and guidance."

As part of the Truman Scholarship, students receive leadership training, graduate school counseling, preferential admission and merit-based aid to some premier graduate institutions, and internship opportunities with federal agencies. Truman Scholars are required to work in public service for three of the seven years following completion of a graduate degree program.

Hannam will be recognized at an awards ceremony in May at the Harry S. Truman Library in Independence, Mo.

This year, four UM students were chosen as finalists for the 2008 Truman Scholarship. In addition to Hannam, Lida Zlatic, a classics major; Tsehaitu Retta, a government & politics major; and Jason Shelton, a Russian and government & politics major were selected from more than 600 applications to be among the 211 finalists from 139 institutions.

Our first grandson arrived by C-section last night. Howard Chase Hackelton (who will be called Chase). 9 lbs. 6 oz. 21 ". Pudgy and adorable. He initially had some respiratory distress but this am is off oxygen and doing better. Sarah has been unable to spend any time with him yet.
If you would join us in prayer, Sarah is having some complications this morning, having been in extreme pain since delivery. They have switched IV meds as her uterus was not contracting well enough to pass clots that need to come out. She is possibly facing more surgery.
Thanks for supporting us.

Hello to All,
Hope you are all doing well. Chase just turned 6 mos. old so we figured we should catch everyone up on what's been going on.
Our family is all doing really well. I LOVE being home with Chase! I truly enjoy taking care of our home, learning how to cook (better!) and spending time with our little guy. We just came back from the doctor's for a well visit and Chase is 26 1/2" long and weighs 15lbs 14 1/2 oz so he is healthy and gaining normally. He has 7 teeth that started coming in as of 3 months! I stopped nursing right before he turned 5 months old for the same reason. Teeth hurt!!! :-)
Chase rolls all over the place now. We put him on the floor and before you know it he's across the room. One of the pictures we are sending shows him in his Bumbo seat. It helps a child sit properly when they can't on their own. He loves the change of position and we are able to interact with him in an upright position. He will sit up for short periods of time if you prop him up but he immediately tries to roll onto his stomach and move. He is 100% boy! The movement and the noise never stops. He has been introducing us to a bunch of new sounds as well as his version of singing which is adorable. Also, just today he started pulling his legs underneath himself and practicing pushing forward with them so I wouldn't be surprised if he isn't crawling really soon.
Howard and I absolutely love being parents. It's been neat for both of us watching how the other interacts with the baby. Howard is a great dad and Chase gets so excited when Howard comes home from work. The arms and legs start flailing and he will let out happy shrieks. Chase also has been sleeping through the night since about 3 mos. I read an article about sleep training babies and since he was old enough we started working with him. Within 2 nights our little guy was sleeping 9 hours a night! Hurray!!! We've just adjusted his schedule to longer awake time and only two naps during the day. He now goes down at 8pm and wakes up at 7am. It is wonderful and Chase, Howard and I are all happy because of it.
Howard is in the midst of his busy season with work so there have been some late days on and off. He is so looking forward to lay off this year and the opportunity to spend a lot of time with our son. I keep busy with housework (I am a neat freak) and the cooking but my favorite part is that since I am home all day I can do more time consuming baking. I LOVE to bake! Chase and I try to get out for a walk everyday and I do workouts with videos we have if I can. Plus, we try to visit his "Nee Nee" (my mom) once a week if possible. She calls him "Bonkie" which his Aunt Kendal has picked up and started calling him as well.
We are very busy but also very happy. Chase has added so much fun to our days. We will be in touch again before to long.
Love,
Sarah, Howard and Chase
