First Generation  Next


1. Nicholas Strauss,1,2,3,4,5 son of John Michael Strauss and \\, was born about 1720 in Urfar, Wertheim, , Baden-Wόrttemberg, Germany6 and died in 1809 in Bedminster, Bucks, Pennsylvania5,6 about age 89. Other names for Nicholas were Nicholas Strause,3,4 George Nicholas Strauss,7 Johann Nicholas Strauss,4 Nicholas Strouse, and8 Nicholas Strouss.9

General Notes:

[Source: Carol Ann Lembke McKee Jenkins, Oliver Hoffman Melchior genealogy, 23 Feb 1999]

Nicholas Strause came from the Palatinate, to Philadelphia, in September 1753 on the "Richard & Mary". "He made his mark".

[Source: Ed Lutton (provided by Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr.)]

The following is extracted from the handwritten notes for a speech given by Ed Lutton to the descendants of Tobias Melchior at a family reunion about 1972 or 1973 (copy provided by Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins). Transcription of text by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 21 May 1999:

"The Nicholas Strouss who is apparently our own young German from the Palatinate made his mark, instead of signing, when he arrived at Philadelphia, Sept 1753 on the ship "Richard and Mary".
He acquired 100 acres in Bedminster, according to tax records, had 7 sons and 2 daughters, according to his will. He died in 1809 leaving a wife Christina who might have been a 2nd wife. Perhaps we can find out someday.
Of these seven sons who complicate our search, only two - John and Henry, the next to youngest, b. ca 1755, remained permanently around Bedminster and Nockamixon, and, of these, John had no dau Sarah, while Henry did, bp 1788 as Maria Sarah. John left a will but Henry died intestate; an inventory exists which with other records show him to have been both a weaver and a farmer.
Among other items he left a Bay Mare, a Brindle Bull, a sleigh, a winnowing mill, several dung forks, 2 planks, a lot of shrukels (the spelling was informal in 1834), 25 bundles of flax, $16.00 worth of grain in the ground, 2 barrels of winneger, 5 spinning wheels, a lot of piler cases, and 27 yards of flax linen.
Brothers John and Henry Strouse both served in the Revolution. They married sisters, Catherine Elizabeth and Mary Magdalena, daughters of John and Anna Margaret Pfeil. We cannot now decide which was our John Pfeil among several early German immigrants of that name from the Palatinate. Our John Pfeil or his son John acquired property in Nockamixon and another son Henry was variously in Bedminster and Nockamixon. From baptismal records it is suggested that Anna Margaret Pfeil, wife of the 1st John Pfeil, was of the Overbeck family important to early Nockamixon.
So much for the line of Strausses behind Susannah Hoffmann."

THE STROUSE FAMILY THE FIRST GENERATION

Some of the following was compiled by myself, with input from the following: Tom Myers, Jake Hannam and Fay Overly. The line of George Strouse Index # 15 was compiled by Jeanne Killick, please see #15 or a link created on my site.

1. NICHOLAS STROUSE B. ______ Died ca. 1809. Married 1st Anna Maria ______? She died after 1789. But prior to 1797. Married 2nd Christina _______? Bucks County Transcript tax 1784 Bedminster Twp, Strouse, Nicholas 96 acres, 1 house, 1 outhouse, 4 people 1790 Census Bucks Co. 1 male over 16 Years, 1 male under 16 Years 2 Females. The 1798 tax list shows that Nicholas has a log house 26' x 20' 1 story with a log barn 36' x 22', value $1,100.00 with 95 acres. His land adjoins Bartle White and Abraham Fretz which means his land was a portion of the 1001 acres in the far northeastern tip of Bedminster twp. The will of Nicholas Strouse was written December 8, 1808 #3630 shows his wife Christina is to receive 1/3 of the sum arising from the sale of Nicholas' estate. The children that are mentioned in the will are shown here in the order they appear in the will Michael, Christopher, John, George, Leonard, Henry, Jacob, a daughter intermarried with Michael Lambert and Margaret. Also mentioned in the will is Nicholas the son of John. Conrad Harpel and Peter Ott of Bedminster are directed as the Executers of the will. Note: will book 6 page 269 in Nockamixon Twp. December 19, 1789 Jacob Geist has a wife Eva Catherina and her brother Nicholas Strouse (could this be the same as our Nicholas?) I have to checked land deeds records until 1919 of the purchase or sale of this property. Jacob Wildonger purchased the real estate for $3066.80 of which ½ was to be paid April 1, 1809 and the second ½ was to be paid April 1, 1810. Estate to all his children and his wife's daughter Mary Catharine (It does appear Christina was previously married) There are a few new developments in this area, it appears Nicholas Strouse, was Johann Nicholas Strauss who was born ca. 1725 the son of John Michael Strauss of Urfar, from the County of Wertheim, Germany and that he and his wife and a child aged 1 and a half immigtrated. At that or nearly at that time his sister Eva Anna also immigrated. Further research is needed here.

There is a Nicholas Strouss in Ship Richard and Mary who came in Sep. 17, 1753. This is the most likely candidate to be of my family line.

NOTE: Carrie E. Bodensteiner names John Michael Strauss, John Strauss, Henry Strauss, and Christopher Strauss as the 'possible' children of Leonard Strauss and Anna Phillippina. Most other sources show them and their siblings as the children of Nicholas Strauss and Christina \\.

An 1892 document by Rev. John F. Rathgeber, Freemansburg., Pa. May 11 1893 (provided by Barbara LaValley to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr.) also attributes Rosina, wife of John Michael Lambert, to "... John Lenard Strauss and his wife Philippina [who] settled in Tinicum Township., Bucks Co., Pa. not later than 1776. They moved to Windsor Township., York Co., ....".

I am looking for info on Nicholas Strauss, b. abt 1720,Ufar, Wertheim, Germany; d.1809, Bedminster Twp., Bucks Co., PA; his wife Phillipina Christiana and their ancestry and descendents. Do you have any info?

Doug Strohl

[Sources: Larry Hillpot, Tom Myers, and Ed Lutton]

Mr. Myers says that the children of Nicholas Strause were by a wife named "Anna Maria". Ed Lutton (see above) indicates that Christina may have been a second wife of Nicholas. Also, Mr. Hillpot now appears to agree that the first wife of Nicholas was Anna Maria and the second wife was Christina (15 June 2002).

He with two brothers arrived at Philadelphia, PA on the ship "Britannia" Sept 26, 1764. They were the sons of Jacob Lambarth a citizen of the above named place, and was a carpenter by trade, and his wife Christina.

Tradition relates that Michael Lambert first settled in Tinicum Township, Bucks County but we do not find him in the tax lists of that Township which are extant from 1779, but a Michael Lambert is taxed in Windsor Township York County, in 1779 and 1780; in the first for one cow, and in the latter for 75 acres, 2 horses and 2 cows. (Pa. Ar. Vol. 21, pp 39 & 230)

In the tax lists for Tinicum in 1782 Michael Lambert is taxed for 3 horses and 3 cows, in 1783 Michael Lambert's estate amount of tax. In 1784 Michael Lambert - 1 outhouse & 7 white inhabitants. (Pa. Ar. 2nd series, Vol. 13 pp 255, 379, 466, 544.)

In the tax lists of Tinicum for 1786 & 1787 the name of Michael Lambert does not appear. It appears in the Census of 1790 in Bucks County as having one male over 16 and 6 under 16 and 5 females. As Michael Lampart he appears in the tax list of 1785, 1786, 1787 in Bedminster Township, Bucks County; he also appears in Tinicum Township as Michael Lamport 1787. (Pa. Arc. Ser 3, Vol. 13 pp 578, 670, 786, 790.)

Copy of an account compiled and written by Rev. John F. Rathgeber, Freemansburg., Pa. May 11 1893
------------
John Michael Lambert, with his wife Rosina Strauss daughter of John Lenard Strauss and his wife (Philipina?)Christina settled in Tinicum Township., Bucks Co.,Pa. not later than 1776. They moved to Windsor Township., York Co., Pa. and returned to Tinicum, Bucks Co previous to April 28, 1782.
It is not known now whether their first son was born in Bucks Co. or in York Co., Pa. but Christian, the second son, and the daughter Barbara Ann were born in Windson(r?) York Co., Pa. the last named was there baptised, Frederich Lambert and his wife Barbara Ann being the sponsors. Who this Lambert family was is not known. He might have been an uncle to John Michael Lambert. At the present time 1893, there are no Lamberts In Windsor, York Co., a. but there are some in Lancaster Co., Pa., but through lack of interest on the part of some people I was unable to find any relatives from the other two brothers so far.
John Michael Lambert had 13 children, the nine younger ones were born in Tinicum, Bucks Co. Previous to 1804 he moved with his family to Nockamixon Township, Bucks Co.
The church record there shows that he and other members of his family communed there. John Michael Lambert was of small stature and had red hair, and so far as the writer knows nearly all of his descendents are of small stature but stout built. He died of consumption in the year 1826 was buried in the Nockamixon cemetery and was therefore 82 yrs. of age.
His wife Rosina survived him 5 yrs. She lived with their oldest son Nicholas Lambert in Williams Township, Northampton Co., Pa. near Raubsville. She died in the year 1831 and was buried in the Durham cemetery Bucks Co. Her age was not given.
Final settlement was made by the oldest son Nicholas Lambert on the 11th day of Dec., 1827. The amount was as follows-
"Dr. $619.671 1/2 Cr. $360.611 1/4 Balance on hand 259.05 1/2." So it was recorded in the office at Doylestown Bucks Co, Pa.

[Source: Larry Hillpot, "The Strauss/Strouse Tombstones of Buck,s Co. Pa."

John Strauss (Strouse) my great- great- great-great grandfather was born the son of Nicholas Strauss Nicholas died in Bedminster circa 1837. John and his wife Catherine Elizabeth Pfeil. Together they had 12 children. John served in the Revolutionary war under Capt. William McHenry 3rd Battalion. John later went on to purchasing the land of his father in law Henry Pile, a 63 acre plantation located in Nockamixon. These are the children shown in his will: Magdalena married Martin Hoffman, Jacob, Anna Catharina, Johannes, Sarah, Nicholas, John Leonard, John Frederick, Anna Margaret, Isaac, Abraham, Joseph, and Margaret who married Samuel Yost.

Noted events in his life were:

• Comment 1: Several people (Larry Hillpot, Tom Myers) have indicated that John Strouse may have been married Elizabeth Catharine Kruger

• Alt. Birth: 1759. 29 Pennsylvania

• Census: 1790. 67 A John Strouse was living with 1 male under sixteen and two females, between the houses of Philip Harpel and Leonard Strouse, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania

• Will: 22 Dec 1831. 90

• Alt. Death: After 22 Dec 1831. 4

John married Catherine Elizabeth Pfeil,1,9,21,22,91 daughter of John Pile 9,77,92,93,94,95 and Margaret Lightcap,9,30,77,93,94,95 about 1780.21 Catherine was born on 18 Jun 1759,96 was baptized on 15 Jul 1759 in Tohickon Union Reformed Church, Bedminster Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania,77 and died before 22 Dec 1831 in Assumed. Catherine Was Not Mentioned In Her Husband's Will Dated 22 December 1831..90 Other names for Catherine were Anna Catharine, Catherine Elizabeth,2,9 Elizabeth Catharine, Catharine Elizabeth Peil,5 Elizabetha Catharina Pfeil, Catherina Pile,21,22,28, and91 Catharina Strauss.77

Marriage Notes:

I am a little concerned about the variety of names given for the wife (or wives) of Johannes or John Strauss. These names are variously Anna Catharine, Elizabeth Catharine, and Catharine Elizabeth. I have been working under the assumption that these are all the same woman, surname Pfeil. However, that assumption may be incorrect as there could have been more than one wife or there were more than one man named Johannes Strauss. For the time being at least, I will continue with these assumptions until further evidence indicates otherwise.

Larry Hillpot shows her as being born 10 October 1784 and baptised 1 December 1785. He shows her as the daughter of John Strauss & Elizabetha Catharina and the sponsors as Ludwig Worman & Anna Maria Pfeil. These dates may be incorrect or it may be another Anna Catharine Strauss.

[Source: Gray Bossard, email to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 9 July 2007]

Dear Jake: As you see I don't check e-mail often. All I have on the Pile family is due to you and Larry Hilpot and the excellent reasearch you both have done. Years ago I noted that John Bossard was a witness to John Pile's will, this was on file in the Westmoreland co. PA courthouse. Thanks to your research I found that John Pile came from Noximixon Twp. Bucks Co. Catherine Straus (11/19/1792 - 6/2/1855) was my Gr.Gr.Gr.Grandmother and was married to Samuel Bossard (1788-1871). They are buried in St. Paul's Reformed Church grave yard in Unity Twp. West. Co. Apparently her parents never moved to West. Co. Her Grandfather John Pile moved to Unity Twp. about 1800 and died there in 1805. Around this time a Caspar Bossard and George Bossard arrived (from Franklin Co. PA) and started to purchase land. (land in this area was originally purchased by a Henry Bossard of Bossardsville, Hamilton Twp. Monroe Co. formerly Northhampton Co.) My supposition is that Samuel and John were sons of Caspar since all were tailors.
I am too old to get around to the courthouses as I did 40 years ago but see what I can obtain on the net.
I wish I could give you more information. If I dig up anymore on the Pile/Pfeil family uou will be informed.
Again thank you for your extensive work.
Regard, Gray Bossard

THE STROUSE FAMILY SECOND GENERATION

CHRISTOPHER STROUSE Born circa 1856? Confirmed at age 17 on May 30, 1774, Lower Tinicum Church with his brother Leonard. Died after April 1841 in Power atty to Jonathan in 1841. He married Anna Maria (Young). She was born abt 1760 and died bef. 1841 in ?

Elizabeth Strouse married Martin Solt

Philip Strouse married Maria Swope

Anna Catharine Strouse married Jacob Stover

Samuel Strouse married Christina Renshimer

John Strouse married Elizabeth

Sarah Strouse married Philip Hoffman

Nicholas Strouse married Mary Magdalena Detweiler

Jonathan Strouse married Elizabeth______

Maria Magdalena Strouse married Joseph Shuman

NOTE: The most significant fact here for my personal family tree is that Mr. Hillpot shows the Sarah Strouse who married Philip Hoffman as the daughter of Christopher Strouse and Anna Maria [Young]. This is significant to me because the sparse family information I had from my own family showed Sarah as the daughter of Henry Strause and Maria Magdalena Pfeil. As I have mentioned elsewhere, I currently have the parentage of Maria Sarah Strouse marked as 'unknown' with both possible sets of parents.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 30 June 2001

NOTE: Tom Myers, in an email to me, John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 10 July 2001, reiterated his belief that Sarah Strouse, wife of John Philip Hoffman, was the daughter of Christopher and Anna Maria Strouse. Mr. Myers apparently has or has seen documents proving that the Sarah Strauss who was the daughter of Henry Strauss and Maria Magdalena Pfiel married Michael Kunsman (also spelled Koonsman).

• Alt. Death: 21,31 prob Bedminster, Bucks County, Pennsylvania

• Alt. Birth: Abt 1757. 4

• Alt. Birth: Abt 1760. 21,68 prob Bucks County, Pennsylvania

• Confirmation: 30 May 1774. 121 Lower Tinicum Church (age 17 with brother, Leonard), Bucks County, Pennsylvania

• Census: 1790. He is probably the Christopher Strouse who was living in Lower Saucon Township, Northampton County, PA during the 1790 Census. He had two males and three females living with him which matches the numbers of children born prior to 1790 plus his wife.

• Alt. Death: After 6 Apr 1801. 26,31

• Alt. Death: After 26 Sep 1813. 4

Christopher married Anna Maria Young 4 about 1780.21 Anna was born about 1760 in Probably Bucks County, Pennsylvania68 and died before 1841 in (Probably) Bedminister, Bucks, Pennsylvania.4 Another name for Anna was Maria \\.84

Noted events in their marriage were:

• Alt. Marriage: 1787.

General Notes:

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

I have no proof of this but I think it is very possible that Anna Maria was the daughter of Philip Stein. Larry Hillpot thinks her last name may have been Young. Perhaps we will never know ...

My reasoning:

One of Philip Stein's daughters, Anna Catharine, married Christopher's brother, John Michael Strauss. Also, Philip Stein and wife were sponsors at the baptism of at least one of the children of Christopher Strauss and Anna Maria \\.

General Notes:

Some information provided to me by Tom Phillips on 1 and 2 November 2013 suggests the possibility that Jacob and Eva Rosina moved to Mahoning Valley,, Pennsylvania where Eva died in 1871 at the age of 105. Mr. Phillip's provided a copy of her obituary, a photo of her, and a photo of a tombstone for 'Sebeina Strauss, wife of Jacob Strauss' that also showed her dying at age 105. As of this date, we have been unable to confirm whether this is the same individual but it appears that they very well may be the same family.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 2 November 2013

Another indication of a possible connection is the fact that a 'Jacob Sehr', possibly Eva Fehr's brother, Jacob, was a sponsor at the Tohickon baptism of their daughter, Anna Margaret in 1800.

   66 F    i. Anna Margaret Strauss 1,22 was born on 2 Feb 180022 and was baptized on 25 May 1800 in Tohickon Lutheran Church, Bedminster, Bucks, Pennsylvania.22

General Notes:

[Source: Barbara Gammons LaValley, LAM_MASTER.GED]

Baptism Witnesses: Jacob Sehr and Margaret Straus

NOTE: It is possible that 'Jacob Sehr' was in acuality Jacob Lehr who was the father or brother of Eva Fehr who married Johan Jacob Strauss. At this point in time, I have been unable to connect the two men named Jacob Strouse or Strauss mainly due to conflicting birth dates.

Johan next married Catherine.2.,5

10. Henry Strouse 1,2,5,7,21,22,28,32 was born about 1765 in Nockamixon Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania4,21,32 and died in 1835 in Nockamixon Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania4,30,32 about age 70.

General Notes:

Larry Hillpot shows Henry Strouse as being married Maria Magdalena Pyle. Scholl and Battle both show him as being married to Anna Pyle.

[Source: 1790 US Census, online image at www.ancestry.com]

Henry Strouse or Strause was living with one male under sixteen and two females at the 1790 census in Bucks County (township unknown). Next door to him was the house of John Pile (probably his father-in-law) who was living with another male over sixteen and two females. On the other side of Henry Strouse, two doors down, was the house of Henry Pile (possibly John Pile's father or maybe his brother) who was living with one female.

[Source: Larry Hillpot, Hillpot Family Genealogy, www.larryhillpot.com, 2 August 2000]

Mr. Hillpot lists a number of people with the surname Strouse with many of its variant spellings. The surnames (disregarding the various spellings) and names of spouses are close enough to merit inclusion. There was at least one Nicholas Straus or Strouse who had sons Henry and John. If Mr. Hillpot's Nicholas is the same as the father of these two boys, then they (Henry and John) also had two sisters and three other brothers. It is also possible that there were two men named Nicholas Strouse who each happened to have sons named John and Henry

Marriage Notes:

[Source: Bucks County, Pennsylvania Church Records, 1770-1820: Nockamixon Township]

Henrich Straus and Maria Magdalena Pfeil, both single, were sponsors at the 4 August 1782 baptism of Maria Magdalena Strauss, daughter of Johannes Strauss and Cath. Strauss. Obviously, then, they were married after that date. They were shown as married at the 29 May 1785 baptism of their daughter, Susanna Catharina Strauss so their marriage must have taken place between 5 August 1782 and 29 May 1785.

General Notes:

[Source: Hillpot Family Genealogy]

Larry Hillpot lists an alternate date of birth, 19 March 1804, with baptism sponsors of Philip Herpel and wife, Magdalene. This is obviously a duplicate listing with variations in the date of birth (19 March 1804 vs. 29 March 1804) and the spelling of Philip Herpel or Harpel's surname.

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

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 29 August 1999]

Could Mary Strauss, wife of Jacob Melchior, be a sister of Margaret Strouse, wife of Joseph Melchior? THIS could be the missing link to tie the two family lines of Johannes Melchior together. This possibility needs to be further researched.

   76 M    ix. Jacob Strouse .4

General Notes:

NOTE: The Scholl genealogy shows the Jacob who married Catharine Harwick as the son of Henry Strouse and Anna Peyl. Larry Hillpot shows him as the son of Henry Strouse and Maria Magdalena Pfeil. Carrie Bodensteiner does not list him as son of Henry and Maria Magdalena.

J.H. Battle's History of Bucks County, page 1138, shows him as the son of Henry Strouse and Anne Maria Pyle.

There is obviously a discrepancy here!

Note from Rick Lambert:
An 1850 census reference to:
Michael Lambert, age 65, occupation weaver, born in PA
Elizabeth Lambert, age 64, born in PA
Source: 1850 Census Microfilm Roll # 759, PA, Bucks Co, Springfield Twp,
Sheet 208, lines 14&15.
While there is no relationship documented between Michael and Elizabeth (not done until the 1880 census), it is probable that this is our Michael and that Elizabeth (last name?) is his wife. This is supported by 1870 Mortality Schedule that Dennis noted earlier (age, location and occupation for Michael); the fact that this could not be an unmarried brother/sister relationship because the ages/dates for Elizabeth are wrong for Elizabeth, dau of John Michael; and the St. Luke's cemetery data which confirms our Michael Lambert data and has an unknown Elizabeth next to him with a birth date that is supported by this census data.

Noted events in his life were:

• Occupation: Weaver

Michael married Elizabeth Pearson,1,16 daughter of Phillip Pearson 1,168 and Elizabeth,1,168 on 25 Aug 1811 in Nockamixon Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania.201.,202 Elizabeth was born on 12 Sep 1785 in , , Pennsylvania,16 died on 23 Jan 1870 in Durham, Bucks, Pennsylvania16,202 at age 84, and was buried in Jan 1870 in St. Luke's Union, Reformed Congregation Church, Ferndale, Bucks, Pennsylvania.

Subject: John Shoemaker/ Catherine Lambert Family Tombstone

Hi all,

Wanted to pass this on last nite, but had all those other messages to do! Anyhow, had a demo to do for a customer in Amsterdam, NY on Friday. Had looked at a map earlier and noticed that St. Johnsville was about 15 miles further down the road, so I "zipped" on over after I was done to see if I could find anything in the local cemeteries.
The cemeteries in town are "union" and not affiliated with a specific church or congregation. Nothing in the main cemetery, but had some luck in the West St. Johnsville Cemetery. The cemetery itself is located about on the north side of the road about 1/2 mile west of St. Johnsville village on NY State Route 5; still in St. Johnsville Township. It is a small cemetery located on a hill; the oldest section in the front and the newest section (still in use) further back and to the right. As you enter and drive up the (short) access road, imagine
an "F" shape. You enter at the bottom, pass the first right till you get to the top and must make the second right. The stone is on the inside of the corner as you make the turn.
It is a large, plain, rectangular stone of granite, about 4 feet tall, 2 feet wide, and about 1 foot thick. It is not typical of other stones of the period that John and Catherine died; these are thin granite slabs about 3 inches thick. Therefore, I think the stone was place later,
perhaps by one of the children who are also buried there. There is a very worn border across the upper face that may have been a floral pattern. The engraving, in straight block letters, is as follows:

JOHN SHOEMAKER
1773 - 1859
CATHERINE L. HIS WIFE
1792 - 1866
THEIR CHILDREN
1818 ROSANNA 1903
1824 CHARLES 1874
1825 MATILDA 1903
1831 JOSEPH 1850

All dates match the years that Rathgeber uses and the Shoemaker genealogy data I sent earlier. Could not find any other stones for children and subsequent families. A quick check of the phone book indicates there are no Shoemakers currently living in the area.

General Notes:

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

NOTE: There must be a mistake here with Jacob Ziegenfuss. Two sisters, Sarah and Maria Lambert, are credited with having children born to him around 1814. I doubt if there were two men named Jacob Ziegenfuss who just happened to marry two sisters. It is possible that Sarah and Maria were the same person. -- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 20 October 2000

NOTE: There were several Jacob Ziegenfuss's born between 1781 and 1800 and baptised at the Tohickon Lutheran Congregation in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. So it is conceivable that two sisters married two different men with the same names. See: Pennsylvania German Church Records III, Tohickon Lutheran Congregation, Baptismal Records

SOURCE-Family History
GEORGE and ANNA brought their family to Tiverton Twp of Coshocton County,Ohio, from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, in 1835. At that time, their oldest child, GEORGE STROUSE JR., was 16 years of age. The youngest,MARY, born in 1834, would have been a toddler. We can only imagine the hardships that they encountered on their long and tedious journey from Pennsylvania into Ohio. The first Ohio Federal Census record for GEORGE STROUSE SR. is the Census of 1840, Tiverton Twp, Coshocton County, OH(Roll 387, p. 361). There were seven children in the household; five sons and two daughters. During their 37 years in Tiverton Twp, GEORGE and ANNA raised their children and farmed their land. As shown in his Will, GEORGE STROUSE SR. was a prosperous man.

Peter Scholl's birth was the cause of his mother's death, and he was reared by her people. When his father removed to Northampton county in 1800 he was not taken along. Thus he became progenitor of the Shull families of east central Bucks county. His descendants are well to do and were and are deciding and progressive factors in their home communities. He was a farmer and owner of much land in Tinicum township. They were members of the Lower Tinicum Lutheran Church, he being confirmed by its pastor, May 10, 1810. They are buried in the second burial yard at that church.

The Will of Peter Scholl is as follows:

"In the Name of God, Amen, I, Peter Shull of Tinicum township in the county of Bucks and state of Pennsylvania, farmer, being in perfect health of body and sound mind and memory and understanding, but considering the uncertainty of this transitory life do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following, to wit:

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

Second.

Third. All the monies arising from my personal estate and all monies found in my possession at the time of my decease I give and bequeathe unto my children, namely my sons Elias, Joseph, Peter, Tobias, and Jacob and my daughters Sarah, Elizabeth and Catherine share and share alike and to their heirs and assigns forever.

Fourth. All monies arising from my real estate I give and bequeathe and devise as follows, one equal share thereof, meaning the equal share of my daughter Elizabeth, shall be and remain in my plantation and to be a lien thereon during the natural life of my said daughter Elizabeth, the yearly interest at five per cent to be paid to her the said Elizabeth annually during her natural life and immediately after her decease the principal sum with its interest accrued or due at the time to be paid to her children or representatives equally share and share alike, as is already here in this my last will before directed. The remainder of my said monies I give and bequeathe and devise unto my other hereinbefore named children absolutely equally share and share alike and to their heirs and assigns forever.

And lastly I nominate, constitute and appoint my two sons Elias and Peter Shull to be my executors of this my last will and testament revoking all other wills, legacies and bequests by me heretofore made and declaring this and no other to be my last will and testament.

In witness thereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this twenty-sixth day of March, A.D. 1862.

Peter Scholl's birth was the cause of his mother's death, and he was reared by her people. When his father removed to Northampton county in 1800 he was not taken along. Thus he became progenitor of the Shull families of east central Bucks county. His descendants are well to do and were and are deciding and progressive factors in their home communities. He was a farmer and owner of much land in Tinicum township. They were members of the Lower Tinicum Lutheran Church, he being confirmed by its pastor, May 10, 1810. They are buried in the second burial yard at that church.

The Will of Peter Scholl is as follows:

"In the Name of God, Amen, I, Peter Shull of Tinicum township in the county of Bucks and state of Pennsylvania, farmer, being in perfect health of body and sound mind and memory and understanding, but considering the uncertainty of this transitory life do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following, to wit:

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

Second. I do order and direct that my hereinafter named executors shall sell at public sale all my real estate and personal property of which I may be possessed at the time of my decease, and I further order that my plantation shall be sold subject to a lien or dower during the natural life of my daughter Elizabeth, now the wife of Samuel Strouse, the lien to be equal to her share in said real estate, my meaning is that my children shall all share equal and alike in my real and personal estate, but the only difference I make is that my daughter Elizabeth's share of the real estate shall remain in my plantation during her natural life as dower and shall be a lien thereon during such time as aforesaid, the interest thereon at five per cent to be paid to her the said Elizabeth yearly and every year during her natural life and immediately after her decease the principal sum with its interest due to be paid to her children or representatives equally share and share alike, and for that purpose I do hereby authorize and empower my said executors or the survivor of them to sign, seal, and execute and acknowledge all such deed or deeds of conveyance as may be requisite and necessary for the granting and assuring the same to the purchaser or purchasers thereof.

Third. All the monies arising from my personal estate and all monies found in my possession at the time of my decease I give and bequeathe unto my children, namely my sons Elias, Joseph, Peter, Tobias, and Jacob and my daughters Sarah, Elizabeth and Catherine share and share alike and to their heirs and assigns forever.

Fourth. All monies arising from my real estate I give and bequeathe and devise as follows, one equal share thereof, meaning the equal share of my daughter Elizabeth, shall be and remain in my plantation and to be a lien thereon during the natural life of my said daughter Elizabeth, the yearly interest at five per cent to be paid to her the said Elizabeth annually during her natural life and immediately after her decease the principal sum with its interest accrued or due at the time to be paid to her children or representatives equally share and share alike, as is already here in this my last will before directed. The remainder of my said monies I give and bequeathe and devise unto my other hereinbefore named children absolutely equally share and share alike and to their heirs and assigns forever.

And lastly I nominate, constitute and appoint my two sons Elias and Peter Shull to be my executors of this my last will and testament revoking all other wills, legacies and bequests by me heretofore made and declaring this and no other to be my last will and testament.

In witness thereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this twenty-sixth day of March, A.D. 1862.

[Source: Email from Barbara LaValley to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 18 February 2004]

Hi Jake,

A Lambert cousin that I work with and has his file on Rootsweb got a "post-em" from a Linda Morris. She claimed that John Strauss (1785-1817) was married to Elizabeth Schnepp, NOT Maria Magdalena Nicholas?? She also claimed that John's grandfather was David Strauss, NOT George Nicholas Strauss. Here is her "post-em" for John Strauss (1759-1838):

One more thing. His father was David Strauss and he was a hero in the Rev. War and is listed on the DAR list. He served as a Captain but off the top of my head I can't remember just which outfit. It was in the Berks Co., Vol. Militia, Pennsylvania though. Sorry, I wish I could email or talk to you. I have quite a few of their decendants.
Linda

Her name is Linda Morris and her email is: morrislinda1@netzero.net Do you know her? Would you like to contact her? You are much more familiar with the Strauss line than I am. Keep me posted on what you find out though. Thanks.

Barbara

PS She said in one of her "post-em's" that her email was down, that was the day before yesterday. So, if your email gets returned I guess you just have to keep trying another day???

It is possible Catharine is the daughter of Madelina/Magdalena Deemer and husband Abraham Mill of Peter and Dorothy Michael Mill. Madelina/Magdalena would be the daughter of Michael Deemer of Nockamixon twn. St Lukes baptismal Anna Catharine born 23 Sept 1801 bapt 14 Feb 1802 sponsors Jacob Mill & Margaretha Diemer/Deemer, daughter of Abraham & Magdalena Mill More research is needed in the church records. It appears Magdalena died by 1818 and Abraham remarried Elizabeth Afflerbach, one of the census has Catherine above with husband a few houses from an Afflerbach. The only other child information was found on was what would be her brother Jeremiah Mill

General Notes:

[Source: Tom Myers, Ancestors of Susanna Hoffman, Genealogy Report, 25 Aug 2000]

Mr. Myers says Sarah Strouse, wife of Philip Hoffman, was the daughter of Christopher Strouse and Anna Maria but does not cite a reference. For now, I have marked the relationship of "Maria Sarah" to Henry and Maria Magdalena Strouse as unknown. It is possible that Sarah and Maria Sarah were two distinct women only one of whom married Philip Hoffman.

THE STROUSE FAMILY THIRD GENERATION

136 SARAH STROUSE Born circa 1792. Died circa 1828. Married Philip Hoffman, December 29, 1812, St. Luke's Lutheran Church, Nockamixon. He was born September 29, 1785. Died June 9, 1861, Nockamixon Township. He was a farmer and is buried St. Luke's Union Cemetery, Nockamixon.

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

[Source: Tom Myers, email to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 10 July 2001]

Mr. Myers indicates (see the text of his email below) that the Sarah Strauss who married John Philip Hoffman was NOT the daughter of Henry Strauss and Maria Magdalena Pfiel. According to documents Mr. Myers possesses or has seen indicates that their daughter, Sarah, married Michael Kunsman. Mr. Myers continues to believe that the Sarah who married John Phillip Hoffman was the daughter of Christopher Strauss.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 10 July 2001

John-Pierre, the estate records of Henry Strouse prove that his daughter Sarah was married to Michael Kunsman. I don't have documented where I got the list of Christopher's children, but by process of elimination, his daughter Sarah is the only one who could be the wife of John Philip Hoffman.

Tom
---------------------

Update: I believe Mr. Myers is correct. Christopher Straus and his wife were sponsors at the baptism of my great-great-grandmother, Susanna Hoffman, on 14 October 1813. Since grandparents or siblings were often sponsors at baptisms, I think this is probably the case here.

-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 29 February 2004



Maria married John Philip Hoffman,3,30 son of John Conrad Hoffmann 12,104 and Magdalena Trauger,3,30 on 29 Dec 1812 in St. Luke Evangelical Lutheran Church (also known as Nockamixon Union Church), Kintnersville, Nockamixon Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania.84 John was born on 29 Sep 1785,30,84 died on 9 Jun 1861 in Nockamixon Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania84 at age 75, and was buried in Saint Luke's Union Church Cemetery, Nockamixon, Bucks, Pennsylvania.

Marriage Notes:

[Source: 1860 U.S. Census, 21 Jun 1860 (Tinicum Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania)]

Nicholas and Mary Strouse, both age 63, were living three houses away from Aaron Hoffman and his wife, Barbary (Strouse) Hoffman, and their children. This lends further credence to the belief that they were related (e.g. Barbara was most likely their daughter as indicated by the record provided to me by Larry Hillpot of the marriage of Aaron Hoffman and Barbara Strouse).

Nicholas and Mary also had a 7-year old male, Samuel Strouse, living with them but he was probably a grandson. Four doors further down from them, Samuel Hoffman, age 25, was living with his wife, Susanna, age 28, and two young children. Samuel was possibly a brother of Aaron.

They had 9 children and I descend from their daughter Rosina.

Mr. Hillpot states that Maria Sarah was married to Michael Kunsman and does not make any mention of a marriage to John Philip Hoffman. In previous versions of my family file, I marked Sarah Strauss's relationship to Christopher Strauss and Anna Maria as 'unknown'. I have now added the Sarah Strauss who married Michael Kunsman (Koonsman) as the daughter of Henry Strauss and Maria Magdalena Pfiel and marked the Sarah Strauss who married Johan Philip Hoffman as the daughter of Christopher Strauss and Anna Maria. There is a discrepancy in that both women are currently listed as being born 25 March 1788 which I will have to try to rectify.

Notes for: Maria Sara (Lerch?) Strauss
From Kyle Miller's Research:
I have now in my possession an old large binder which reads on the front Family Records, History, Wills, Deeds, etc. of the Kunsman Family Association. Michael Kunsman (Johann Michael) was born on March 10, 1782 and married Maria Sara Strauss daughter of John Strauss (note: some confusion as to if Strauss is correct due to an apparent attempt at making some sort of correction, looks like correction is Lerch?) . He died May 3, 1858. Father was Philip Kunstman born abt. 1755 and married Elizabeth Ernst (1st wife).

Their Children: (to which they took to be baptized)

Notes Note (1) Sara is listed as widowed in 1860 Note (2) Year of birth is in question. From the church records Margretha was baptized in 1821. I speculate that she was born 01-JAN-1819 a twin of Lydias and perhaps was too ill to be baptized with Lydia. Though certainly possible, I think it highly unlikely that this family would have two New Years babies born 2 years apart.

General Notes:

[Source: Ed Lutton]

The following is extracted from the handwritten notes for a speech given by Ed Lutton to the descendants of Tobias Melchior at a family reunion about 1972 or 1973 (copy provided by Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins). Transcription of text by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 21 May 1999:

"It is said that Tobias' mother was Mary Strauss S-T-R-A-U-S-S and to be of a different family from that of Sarah Strouse, Susanna's mother, but do we know? Certainly spelling was sufficiently flexible that we cannot lean on it. All else I have heard was that Mary Strauss came from Northampton Co, but let us look further into that."

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

NOTE: The assertion that Sarah Strouse, Susanna's mother, was from a different family appears to be supported by Tom Myers, "Ancestors of Susanna Hoffman" who attributes Sarah to Christopher Strouse and Anna Maria \\. Mr. Myers does not list a sister, Mary.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 27 August 2000

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

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 29 August 1999]

Could this Mary Strauss, wife of Jacob Melchior, be a sister of Margaret Strouse, wife of Joseph Melchior? THIS could be the missing link to tie the two family lines of Johannes Melchior together.

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

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 22 November 2105]

As far as I am concerned, there is no proof that Jacob Melcher was the father of Tobias Melcher. Jacob is listed as Tobias's father by Mary Susanna Rau and Carol Lemkbe-McKee-Jenkins but I have been unable to find any documents to support that. Of course, this does not mean he wasn't the father. I just have not been able to confirm it one way or the other. Tom Myers does not believe Jacob would have been old enough to be Tobias's father and thinks that Tobias MAY have been a son of Michael Melchor but has no proof. Carol Lembke-McKee-Jenkins told me her mother once said that Tobias may have been a "stowaway" and therefore would not have any parents in America.

Description:
Keller's Lutheran Church is located in Bedminster Township, in the central part of Bucks County. The church was called Tohecka/Tohickon, not to be confused with the other Tohickon Church at Hagersville about three-and-a-half miles south. In 1802, the name ""Keller's"" came into use and later St. Matthew's. A Reformed Church, possibly called Solomon's, joined ca. 1841 and lasted til 1957-58. Keller's is located in Bedminster Township at Keller's Church on Route 563, eight miles northeast of Perkasie. Records of baptisms, marriages, and burials are included for the years 1751 through 1798.

[Source: 1860 U.S. Census, 21 June 1860 (Nockamixon Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania - Upper Blacks Eddy post office)]

According to the 1860 census, Christian, wife Sarah, and son Amos were living with their daughter, Franey, and her husband, Peter Young, and their two small children. According to the record, Christian still owned $400 worth of real estate.

However, in the 1870 census of 23 July 1970, Christian, Sarah and Amos were living alone again (no mention of Franey or Peter Young) with a new child or grandchild, Henry, age 11.

By the 1880 census, Christian, Sarah and Amos were still living together (possibly with a family named Wertz) as Christian and Sarah were listed as boarders. Christian was listed as having a disability of "nerves fits".

General Notes:

According to a photograph in my possession, the subject of the photo was purportedly Reuben Hoffman. Someone (probably my grandmother, Mary S. Rau) had written on the back of the photograph, "Reuben Hoffman, related to O.H. Melchior". As of this moment, however, I have no further information on this gentleman and I have no indication of how he was related. It is possible that he was a son of Christian Hoffman and Sarah Solt and I have attached him accordingly. I have no proof, however, that this is the same gentleman.

The following is another record for a Reuben Hoffman that shows him as a son of Christian and Mary Hoffman. The name of his mother and his wife differ from that given for the son of Christian and Sarah Solt Hoffman.

Marriage Notes:

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

A number of the children of Tobias Melchior and Susanna Hoffman have names that are very similar to some of the children of Michael Melchior and Mary Heany. Of course, this may mean nothing at all. However, it may also be a clue to a possible relationship of Tobias (a son?) to Michael and Mary Melchior. Could Tobias have named some of his children after his own brothers and sisters?

Tom Myers, who has provided me with very useful information in the past, did some research on Jacob Melchior who my family indicates was the father of Tobias Melchior. He concluded that Jacob was NOT the father of Tobias. He believes the more likely scenario is that Michael Melchior was the father of both Jacob and Tobias although no proof of this has been found to date. Mr. Myers noted that Michael Melchior had a male under the age of 10 living with him during the 1820 census which could very well have been my Tobias.

Tobias and Susanna Melcher were sponsors at the baptism of William Mill (born 10 February 1841) on 16 May 1841. William was a son of Jacob and Lydia Mill.

Noted events in their marriage were:

• Communion: 15 Oct 1843, St. Luke Evangelical Lutheran Church (also known as Nockamixon Union Church), Kintnersville, Nockamixon Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania. 391 Tobias and Susanna took communion on this date (or at least attended church)

General Notes:

[Source: The Hannam Genealogy, John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., .18 October 2014]

This gentleman, my great-great-grandfather, has been a perpetual tease for me -- and a source of great frustration -- since I began researching my family tree. My second-cousin, Carol Lembke-McKee-Jenkins, provided most of what I know about him but even her knowledge is limited and speculative. For years, probably based on the 1860 census, we assumed that his name was Tobias Walker Melchor (also spelled Melcher or Melchior). However, I believe I have conclusively eliminated the Walker part of his name (see below for the 1860 census information).

We also assumed he was the son of Jacob Melcher and Anna Maria Strauss but truthfully have no proof of that. I have been unable to find any birth or baptismal records for Tobias, any records of his connection to the Michael Melchor family that lived in Bucks County at that time, or any immigration records. Of course, that does not mean there are no records - I just have been unsuccessful in finding them. There are records from the 1700s and early 1800s of a Tobias Melcher in New Hampshire and some names that are similar to those of our Bucks County Tobias but I have found no indication of a connection to those families either. Carol Lembke's mother, Annette Melchior Lembke, once speculated that Tobias may have been a 'stowaway' but -- as in all things Tobias -- she had no proof of that.

Bucks County census records clearly show Tobias as a "laborer' or 'farmer' who lived in Bedminster and Nockamixon counties. According to tax records on ancestry.com, Tobias Melcher lived (or worked) in Haycock Township in 1841 and 1842. By 1848, he was a tenant on the property of John Beysher in Bedminster Township and owned one horse and two cattle at the time valued at $62.

We do know that several of his children (not all of them) were baptized at the St. Luke Evangelical Lutheran Church (known at that time as the Nockamixon Union Church) in the Kintnersville area of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. We also know from church records that Tobias attended at least one Communion service on 28 March 1869 and again on Easter Sunday, 13 April 1879. One of his sons, Oliver Hoffman Melchor, would become a well-known and popular Lutheran minister and was also a well-educated man. Oliver was also a prohibitionist so does that mean his father was too?

Tobias and his wife, Susanna Hoffman, were obviously interested in education as they donated some of their land for the construction of a schoolhouse but we have no record of their own education, if any. Susanna was baptised in a Lutheran church which is probably sufficient to explain Oliver's going into the Lutheran ministry. So, who was Tobias Melchor? Was he a church-going man? A prohibitionist? Educated? Or was he just a simple man who toiled in the fields to feed his family - an example of the hardy men and women who helped build this country?

Unfortunately, we do not know a great deal about any of his other children. For example, John apparently died in 1864 at a young age. Was he killed in the Civil War? Or was he the victim of disease or accident?

In conclusion, for anyone reading this narrative, we do not know who Tobias Melcher's parents were or from whence he came. He was probably born in Pennsylvania (the 1860 census indicates that he was) but we have no proof of that. Paradoxically, his wife's lineage is fairly clear and goes back for several generations.

Therefore, although I currently have Tobias as a son of Jacob Melcher and Anna Maria Strauss (based on family beliefs), it is probable that he was NOT a son and it is possible that he may not have even been related. As Tom Myers has indicated (see below), it is more likely that he was a son of Michael Melchor and a brother of Jacob Melcher but, again, we have no proof at this time.

Possibilties (just a few of many):
- Tobias was a descendent of Tobias Melcher from New Hampshire and Maine
- Tobias was a descendant of Johannes Melchior who emigrated on the "Lydia" 29 September 1741
- Tobias was a descendant of Johannes Melcher who emigrated on the "Friendship" 12 October 1741
- Tobias was a descendant of the Michel Melchior who lived in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania
- Tobias was a descendant of Nicholas Melchior who emigrated on the "Harle" 1 September 1736
- Tobias was a descendant of George Melcher who lived in Philadelphis in the mid-1700s
- Tobias was a son (more likely brother) of Jacob Melcher, son of Michael Melcher
- Tobias was a son of another Jacob (there were several in Pennsylvania who were of appropriate age)
- Tobias was a son of Michael Melcher (possible but no record of a Tobias in the family)
- Tobias was a 'stowaway' who came to America undocumented
- Tobias may have been an illegitimate son of Jacob Melcher who was essentially disowned by the family
- Tobias may have been disowned by the Bucks County family of Michael Melchor, who were Catholics, when he married a Lutheran girl, Susanna Hoffman

[Source: "Melchior Genealogy", Charles M. Melchior, August 1995]

"Tobias Melchior married his first cousin, whose mother was Sarah Straus Hoffman, sister of Anna Maria Straus, the wife of Tobias' father Jacob."

NOTE: As discussed above, this has yet to be proven to my satisfaction.

The following is extracted from the handwritten notes for a speech given by Ed Lutton to the descendants of Tobias Melchior at a family reunion about 1972 or 1973 (copy provided by Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins). Transcription of text by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 21 May 1999:

"Let us turn to the census record of 1860.
In Nockamixon in 1860, the year Lincoln was first elected we have:

Tobias Walker 47 (Lincoln was 51)
Mary Walker 87
Samuel 19
Anna 17
Oliver 12
Josiah 8
Amandus 4
Amanda Hager 17

Susanna Hoffman Melcher had died earlier that year. Children John and Sara were married and gone. Tobias was trying to make do with Amanda Hager to help and she shortly married Samuel. And Anna soon married Wm. Trauger."

NOTE: An online copy of this 1860 census record at www.ancestry.com clearly shows the family's name as Malker or Malher (not Walker) and was obviously a spelling error by the census taker of the name Melchor or Melcher. Also, the age given for Mary Malker 'appears' to be a poorly written 87 but could just as well be a 17. Since there were already two other seventeen-year olds in the household, Anna Malker and Amanda Hager (the 17 being very clearly written in both cases), I believe Mr. Lutton was correct in recording Mary Malker as being 87 years of age. It is reasonable to assume that this Mary Malker was Tobias's mother but there is no proof of that at this time.

In this census record, Tobias is listed as a farmer with place of birth of Pennsylvania. Son Samuel was listed as a farm laborer. Anna Malker and Amanda Hager were both listed as "domestic".

An email posted by Eloise Hedbor on GenForum, http://www.genforum.com/melcher/messages, 24 May 1998:

"Tobias Melchior born mid 1700s, married Susanna Hoffman. I have a note written maybe a century ago that reports: 'Tobias Melchor came to America from the Palatinate. Some of his children later spelled their names Melchor, Melcher, or Melchior. Oliver became a minister in Springtown.'

They had seven children, Samuel, Sarah, John, Oliver, Anna Maria, Amandus, Josiah, and Mary Machadalana. Looking for any connections."

[NOTE: Ms. Hedbor appears to have the names of the children correct but this particular Tobias Melchior could not have been born in "mid 1700s". He died in 1883.

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

CENSUS INFORMATION:

There was a Tobias Melcher who lived in New Hampshire (Rockingham County, Portsmouth Township) who was listed in the First Census of the United States (1790). He was also there in 1800. It is possible that he was related in some way to the Melchers of Bucks County and perhaps his son or grandson with the same first name, Tobias, migrated to Bucks County to be near his relatives. This is purely speculation on my part at this time.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 24 February 2002

NOTE: There were also two John Melchers and two Nathaniel Melchers and a James Melcher and a James Melcher, Jr. in the same vicinity. These names (other than John) do not appear in the family of the Bucks County Tobias Melcher so perhaps there is no connection.

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

[Source: 1800 U.S. Census, Nockamixon Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania]

There was a Lawrence or Laurence Melzer living in Nockamixon Township. It is conceivable that the name was changed over time from Melzer to Melcher..

[Source: 1820 U.S. Census - Maine]

This is probably pure coincidence, but there was a Josiah Melcher, two Samuel Melchers, and a Joseph Melcher living in Cumberland, Maine during the 1820 Census. Josiah and Samuel were the names given to two of Tobias Melchor's sons.

The following was transcribed by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., from a hand-written biography of Tobias Melchior by Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins sent to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., in January 2001.

Tobias Melchior

by Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins

He was born on March 2, 1813, near Nockamixon, PA, and never traveled more than 10 miles from his home. In 1833, age 20, he married Susanna Hoffman, born on Oct. 14, 1813. They had six children, with the sixth child being Oliver Hoffman (12-23-1848).

Tobias was a poor dirt farmer, in Nockamixon in 1840 census, and then Bedminster in 1850 census. In 1851 he inherited $213.00, probably from Martin Hoffman (father-in-law)'s estate. [NOTE: This should be John Philip Hoffman, not Martin -- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr.]. In 1856 he bought 114 acres in Nockamixon. One year later (1857), he and Susanna started the Melchior school, with the deed signed on Dec. 19, 1857. The school was built of stone, on 35 perches (1/4 acre) for the education of his family and other children of the area. The school was sold to the Nockamixon School District for $1.00.

Oliver later wrote about his father, "At night, after he came in from the field, he loomed cloth, wove carpets, and even built shoes, not only for his family, but also for neighbors willing to buy."

On January 16, 1860, Susanna died (age 47). She's buried at Nockmixon Church, in Ferndale. In 1870, he married Caroline (?), who was reported to be a pipe-smoking woman who only spoke German. Tobias' will was written on August 11, 1876. He died on September 21, 1883, age 70, and is buried in Nockamixon Cem. in Ferndale "right by the steps forming an opening in wall along the road."

Comment by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 21 January 2001:

Ms. Jenkins says her mother, Annette Melchior Lembke, told her that Tobias may have been a "stowaway". She had no documentation for this but was merely relating a recollection of something her mother had told her. If this is true, it could explain why there were so many Melcher-Melchor-Melchior's in the area but no documentation for a son named Tobias. Perhaps he WAS a stowaway, perhaps a relation of the Bucks County family, or perhaps he had a different name and simply adopted the name of Melcher. He may or may not have lived with a family of the Melchor-Melcher-Melchior surname and he may or may not have been related to them. Perhaps we will never know ...

Hi Jake! Good to hear from you. I do recall corresponding with you.
Although I don't have definitive proof, I don't believe it's possible for Tobias to fit anywhere except as a son of Michael. Michael's son Jacob never married and I don't know of an unaccounted for Sarah Strouse who would be old enough to be Tobias' mother. Plus Michael's son Jacob would only have been 16 when Tobias was born. Michael's eldest son John wasn't married until after Tobias was born. By process of elimination, I don't see any logical alternative to placing Tobias as a son of Michael.
I'd be glad to discuss anything else that you'd like.

Hello, Mr. Myers,
We corresponded for awhile a couple of years ago and you were kind enough to do some research on my great-great-grandfather, Tobias Melchor. If you recall, we were trying to determine who his parents were. Some people said it was Jacob Melcher and Sarah Strouse but you believed it was Michael Melchor and his wife but you could not verify it or prove it.
So, just in case you lost track of me or my email address, if you have ever come across anything more on this family. I have been able to tie in other families from Bucks County (Pile, Strouse, Hoffman, Hauswirth, Leibkepp and a few others) that seem to be related somehow but I can never seem to get the missing link with Tobias Melchor's parents or siblings.
Thanks for your help in the past. It opened up some new doors for me.

"Jake"

[Source: 1910 Census, 23 April 1910]

On the census form for the birthplaces of father and mother, the birthplace of Oliver H. Melchor's father, Tobias, was given as Pennsylvania. This would throw into doubt the supposition that Tobias may have been a "stowaway" as Annette Lembke thought a possibility.

NOTE: The 1920 Census also showed Oliver's parents being born in Pennsylvania. Even the 1880 census record for Tobias shows him as being born in Pennsylvania as well as his parents.

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 5 September 2013]

From the church records I have been able to find, it would appear that Tobias's church habits were 'sporadic'. He and Susanna had at least some of their children baptized but I have been unable to find records for all the children. Oliver appeared to attend with some frequency which is not unexpected since he did go into the ministry. However, communion records for Tobias are sparse. He did attend Easter Sunday on 28 March 1869 at St. Luke Evangelical. Oliver and Hannah, John's widow, also took communion that day. Josiah was listed under the catechumens for that date. Not having searched each and every record of communion, I cannot say how often Tobias actually attended. However, I can say with all assurance that some of his children, in particular Oliver, Josiah, and Amandus attended much more ffrequently. This is not a criticism of my ancestor but merely an observation.

Although Tobias is apparently buried in the Nockamxon cemetery, there is no mention of his death or burial in the church record that I could find. This is very curious considering the fact that his son, Oliver, was the pastor at the church at the time of Tobias's death. We can only speculate about the reason for this omission.

NOTE: This email is interesting, especially the story of how the Melcher-Melchor-Melchior name evolved. However, the part about Tobias leaving Susannah is false to the best of my knowledge.

Re: OWM

An additional thought or two. Tobias Melcher left Susannah Hoffman and married again, but I forget the name and circumstances, such as whether she died, and he remarried. The German family name was Melcher, and Oliver Hoffman Melcher, one of Tobias' sons, was a traveling minister in Bucks County. I have visited his churches, and there is still family there. Oliver H decided that he was a scholar and decided to change the name to Melchior, which was the name of one of the Maji, the Wiseman of the East, in the Jesus Christ history. The name was too difficult for the congregations, a group of farmers, so he decided to drop the I in the name. Thus, Melchor. It was then restored, allegedly by D. Montfort Melchior. I have many of these stories and memories, so you can pump me for what I am worth.

Subject: Anthony Hoffman children and ancestors

Anthony Hoffman (b. 1826) is my great great grandfather, and I am working on tracking his lineage, and it seems you have done a lot of work on this branch, and I was hoping you might help with a couple questions. 1. In the 1870 census, his four children are listed consistent with your geneology. But in the 1860 census, it seems pretty clear that he and Elizabeth show up again in same place, but with different children. "Leidy" born 1860 (age 1/12), and Sarah b. 1849 (neither on your pedigree). Have you researched this at all? The other children in the 1870 census may not have been born yet, except Isaiah who should have a birthdate the same as 'Leidy' (Female). Could Sarah have been an older sibling that no longer lived with them in 1870 census, or a sister of Anthony? Could Leidy have changed sex and name to Isaiah? 2. Your notes say you have a will. It would be great to see a copy of this if possible - do you have it digitized? 3. I am also struggling with the grandfather of Anthony (Conrad) - there are different pedigrees with different spouses (and a lot of Conrad Hoffman's floating around then). Are you confident of your pedigree with the two wives? Thanks so much for any help you are able and willing to provide. I live in Kensington MD, and would be delighted to speak further about this.

Best regards, Eric Hoffman

LOWER TINICUM CHURCH RECORDS

TINCIUM
HISTORY OF BUCKS COUNTY - 1738

Tinicum is bounded by the Delaware river and Nockamixon on the north, the Delaware on the east, the Tohickon, which separates it from Plumstead and Bedminister, on the south, and by Nockamixon on the west. About 1730, we find settled there; William Edward, Moses Marshall, Moses and Joseph Collins, Joseph Haverford, Richard Thatcher, David Griflee(Griffith), Richard Minturn, James Ross, John Hall and James Willey and I'm sure many more, not one of whom was German. The actual date when each one of these immigrants settled in Tinicum, it is impossible to give, or the place and the quantity of land taken up. Edward Marshall, was an inhabitant at the time and during part of his residence there, made his home on an island in the Delaware, which still bears his name. In 1737 Matthew Hughes took up a track in the lower part of the township. In 1746 he granted forty acres to Adam Meisner, at the upper end of Point Pleasant, then called the "Narrows". A German named Christopher Sigman lived in Tinicum in 1750. The Wolfingers of Tinicum and neighboring townships are descended from Frederick Wolfinger who came with his wife from Germany about 1750.

LOWER TINICUM

LOWER TINICUM CHURCH: Transcribed by B. F. Fackenthal, Jr. Riegelsville, Pa. The original church stood on the hill near the abandoned cemetery. It was built of logs, probably in 1747, the "Brick" church, the third structure at that place erected by the Lutheran and Reformed congregations, was destroyed by fire. The denominations then separated, the Lutherans building a new church and the Reformed congregation rebuilding and occupying the Brick Church. The present (1923) date stone as "Lower Tinicum Reformed Church-rebuilt A. D. 1908."

ELIAS STROUSE
…farmer. P.O. Ottsville, is a grandson of Henry and Ann Maria (Pyle) Strouse. The former was born in Nockamixon Township, was a farmer, and died there in 1835, as did his wife, who was a native of Germany. Their son, Jacob, father of Elias, was born in 1790, and on his marriage in 1826 came to Tinicum, and bought the farm, where he died in 1874. He was a man of excellent character, and more than ordinary intelligence. From comparatively nothing he became well off, leaving a fine estate. His wife was Catherine, daughter of Samuel Herwick, of Springfield Township. She died in 1881, in her eighty-second year. Their children were Hannah, widow of Peter Bean, living in Quakertown; Susanna, wife of Elias Gruver, of this Township; Franie, wife of Tobias Mitman, in Quakertown; and Elias, who was the only son, and was born August 28, 1828. He lived on the home farm until fourteen years after his marriage, when he bought his present elegant home near Red Hill. October 3, 1850, he was married to Anna Mary, daughter of Henry Kruger, of Nockamison. She was born in 1826. To their union nine children have been born, four of whom died young, and a daughter, Franie, after her marriage. The survivors are Amanda, wife of Clinton S. Lerch, of this Township; Reed C., married to Jennie Jeffries, and living in Quakertown; Annie, wife of George W. Lerch, of Bedminster; and Jacob M., who lives with his parents. Mr. Strouse is a prominent citizen, and has held several offices in the Township. He and his wife are members of the Nockamixon Church, of which he was for several years deacon.

General Notes:

[Source: The Hannam Genealogy, John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., .18 October 2014]

This gentleman, my great-great-grandfather, has been a perpetual tease for me -- and a source of great frustration -- since I began researching my family tree. My second-cousin, Carol Lembke-McKee-Jenkins, provided most of what I know about him but even her knowledge is limited and speculative. For years, probably based on the 1860 census, we assumed that his name was Tobias Walker Melchor (also spelled Melcher or Melchior). However, I believe I have conclusively eliminated the Walker part of his name (see below for the 1860 census information).

We also assumed he was the son of Jacob Melcher and Anna Maria Strauss but truthfully have no proof of that. I have been unable to find any birth or baptismal records for Tobias, any records of his connection to the Michael Melchor family that lived in Bucks County at that time, or any immigration records. Of course, that does not mean there are no records - I just have been unsuccessful in finding them. There are records from the 1700s and early 1800s of a Tobias Melcher in New Hampshire and some names that are similar to those of our Bucks County Tobias but I have found no indication of a connection to those families either. Carol Lembke's mother, Annette Melchior Lembke, once speculated that Tobias may have been a 'stowaway' but -- as in all things Tobias -- she had no proof of that.

Bucks County census records clearly show Tobias as a "laborer' or 'farmer' who lived in Bedminster and Nockamixon counties. According to tax records on ancestry.com, Tobias Melcher lived (or worked) in Haycock Township in 1841 and 1842. By 1848, he was a tenant on the property of John Beysher in Bedminster Township and owned one horse and two cattle at the time valued at $62.

We do know that several of his children (not all of them) were baptized at the St. Luke Evangelical Lutheran Church (known at that time as the Nockamixon Union Church) in the Kintnersville area of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. We also know from church records that Tobias attended at least one Communion service on 28 March 1869 and again on Easter Sunday, 13 April 1879. One of his sons, Oliver Hoffman Melchor, would become a well-known and popular Lutheran minister and was also a well-educated man. Oliver was also a prohibitionist so does that mean his father was too?

Tobias and his wife, Susanna Hoffman, were obviously interested in education as they donated some of their land for the construction of a schoolhouse but we have no record of their own education, if any. Susanna was baptised in a Lutheran church which is probably sufficient to explain Oliver's going into the Lutheran ministry. So, who was Tobias Melchor? Was he a church-going man? A prohibitionist? Educated? Or was he just a simple man who toiled in the fields to feed his family - an example of the hardy men and women who helped build this country?

Unfortunately, we do not know a great deal about any of his other children. For example, John apparently died in 1864 at a young age. Was he killed in the Civil War? Or was he the victim of disease or accident?

In conclusion, for anyone reading this narrative, we do not know who Tobias Melcher's parents were or from whence he came. He was probably born in Pennsylvania (the 1860 census indicates that he was) but we have no proof of that. Paradoxically, his wife's lineage is fairly clear and goes back for several generations.

Therefore, although I currently have Tobias as a son of Jacob Melcher and Anna Maria Strauss (based on family beliefs), it is probable that he was NOT a son and it is possible that he may not have even been related. As Tom Myers has indicated (see below), it is more likely that he was a son of Michael Melchor and a brother of Jacob Melcher but, again, we have no proof at this time.

Possibilties (just a few of many):
- Tobias was a descendent of Tobias Melcher from New Hampshire and Maine
- Tobias was a descendant of Johannes Melchior who emigrated on the "Lydia" 29 September 1741
- Tobias was a descendant of Johannes Melcher who emigrated on the "Friendship" 12 October 1741
- Tobias was a descendant of the Michel Melchior who lived in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania
- Tobias was a descendant of Nicholas Melchior who emigrated on the "Harle" 1 September 1736
- Tobias was a descendant of George Melcher who lived in Philadelphis in the mid-1700s
- Tobias was a son (more likely brother) of Jacob Melcher, son of Michael Melcher
- Tobias was a son of another Jacob (there were several in Pennsylvania who were of appropriate age)
- Tobias was a son of Michael Melcher (possible but no record of a Tobias in the family)
- Tobias was a 'stowaway' who came to America undocumented
- Tobias may have been an illegitimate son of Jacob Melcher who was essentially disowned by the family
- Tobias may have been disowned by the Bucks County family of Michael Melchor, who were Catholics, when he married a Lutheran girl, Susanna Hoffman

[Source: "Melchior Genealogy", Charles M. Melchior, August 1995]

"Tobias Melchior married his first cousin, whose mother was Sarah Straus Hoffman, sister of Anna Maria Straus, the wife of Tobias' father Jacob."

NOTE: As discussed above, this has yet to be proven to my satisfaction.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 23 February 2013

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

The following is extracted from the handwritten notes for a speech given by Ed Lutton to the descendants of Tobias Melchior at a family reunion about 1972 or 1973 (copy provided by Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins). Transcription of text by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 21 May 1999:

"Let us turn to the census record of 1860.
In Nockamixon in 1860, the year Lincoln was first elected we have:

Tobias Walker 47 (Lincoln was 51)
Mary Walker 87
Samuel 19
Anna 17
Oliver 12
Josiah 8
Amandus 4
Amanda Hager 17

Susanna Hoffman Melcher had died earlier that year. Children John and Sara were married and gone. Tobias was trying to make do with Amanda Hager to help and she shortly married Samuel. And Anna soon married Wm. Trauger."

NOTE: An online copy of this 1860 census record at www.ancestry.com clearly shows the family's name as Malker or Malher (not Walker) and was obviously a spelling error by the census taker of the name Melchor or Melcher. Also, the age given for Mary Malker 'appears' to be a poorly written 87 but could just as well be a 17. Since there were already two other seventeen-year olds in the household, Anna Malker and Amanda Hager (the 17 being very clearly written in both cases), I believe Mr. Lutton was correct in recording Mary Malker as being 87 years of age. It is reasonable to assume that this Mary Malker was Tobias's mother but there is no proof of that at this time.

In this census record, Tobias is listed as a farmer with place of birth of Pennsylvania. Son Samuel was listed as a farm laborer. Anna Malker and Amanda Hager were both listed as "domestic".

-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 20 January 2008

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

An email posted by Eloise Hedbor on GenForum, http://www.genforum.com/melcher/messages, 24 May 1998:

"Tobias Melchior born mid 1700s, married Susanna Hoffman. I have a note written maybe a century ago that reports: 'Tobias Melchor came to America from the Palatinate. Some of his children later spelled their names Melchor, Melcher, or Melchior. Oliver became a minister in Springtown.'

They had seven children, Samuel, Sarah, John, Oliver, Anna Maria, Amandus, Josiah, and Mary Machadalana. Looking for any connections."

[NOTE: Ms. Hedbor appears to have the names of the children correct but this particular Tobias Melchior could not have been born in "mid 1700s". He died in 1883.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 28 October 2007]

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

CENSUS INFORMATION:

There was a Tobias Melcher who lived in New Hampshire (Rockingham County, Portsmouth Township) who was listed in the First Census of the United States (1790). He was also there in 1800. It is possible that he was related in some way to the Melchers of Bucks County and perhaps his son or grandson with the same first name, Tobias, migrated to Bucks County to be near his relatives. This is purely speculation on my part at this time.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 24 February 2002

NOTE: There were also two John Melchers and two Nathaniel Melchers and a James Melcher and a James Melcher, Jr. in the same vicinity. These names (other than John) do not appear in the family of the Bucks County Tobias Melcher so perhaps there is no connection.

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

[Source: 1800 U.S. Census, Nockamixon Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania]

There was a Lawrence or Laurence Melzer living in Nockamixon Township. It is conceivable that the name was changed over time from Melzer to Melcher..
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 8 July 2007

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

[Source: 1820 U.S. Census - Maine]

This is probably pure coincidence, but there was a Josiah Melcher, two Samuel Melchers, and a Joseph Melcher living in Cumberland, Maine during the 1820 Census. Josiah and Samuel were the names given to two of Tobias Melchor's sons.

The following was transcribed by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., from a hand-written biography of Tobias Melchior by Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins sent to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., in January 2001.

Tobias Melchior

by Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins

He was born on March 2, 1813, near Nockamixon, PA, and never traveled more than 10 miles from his home. In 1833, age 20, he married Susanna Hoffman, born on Oct. 14, 1813. They had six children, with the sixth child being Oliver Hoffman (12-23-1848).

Tobias was a poor dirt farmer, in Nockamixon in 1840 census, and then Bedminster in 1850 census. In 1851 he inherited $213.00, probably from Martin Hoffman (father-in-law)'s estate. [NOTE: This should be John Philip Hoffman, not Martin -- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr.]. In 1856 he bought 114 acres in Nockamixon. One year later (1857), he and Susanna started the Melchior school, with the deed signed on Dec. 19, 1857. The school was built of stone, on 35 perches (1/4 acre) for the education of his family and other children of the area. The school was sold to the Nockamixon School District for $1.00.

Oliver later wrote about his father, "At night, after he came in from the field, he loomed cloth, wove carpets, and even built shoes, not only for his family, but also for neighbors willing to buy."

On January 16, 1860, Susanna died (age 47). She's buried at Nockmixon Church, in Ferndale. In 1870, he married Caroline (?), who was reported to be a pipe-smoking woman who only spoke German. Tobias' will was written on August 11, 1876. He died on September 21, 1883, age 70, and is buried in Nockamixon Cem. in Ferndale "right by the steps forming an opening in wall along the road."

Comment by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 21 January 2001:

Ms. Jenkins says her mother, Annette Melchior Lembke, told her that Tobias may have been a "stowaway". She had no documentation for this but was merely relating a recollection of something her mother had told her. If this is true, it could explain why there were so many Melcher-Melchor-Melchior's in the area but no documentation for a son named Tobias. Perhaps he WAS a stowaway, perhaps a relation of the Bucks County family, or perhaps he had a different name and simply adopted the name of Melcher. He may or may not have lived with a family of the Melchor-Melcher-Melchior surname and he may or may not have been related to them. Perhaps we will never know ...

Hi Jake! Good to hear from you. I do recall corresponding with you.
Although I don't have definitive proof, I don't believe it's possible for Tobias to fit anywhere except as a son of Michael. Michael's son Jacob never married and I don't know of an unaccounted for Sarah Strouse who would be old enough to be Tobias' mother. Plus Michael's son Jacob would only have been 16 when Tobias was born. Michael's eldest son John wasn't married until after Tobias was born. By process of elimination, I don't see any logical alternative to placing Tobias as a son of Michael.
I'd be glad to discuss anything else that you'd like.
Tom
---------------------
Hello, Mr. Myers,
We corresponded for awhile a couple of years ago and you were kind enough to do some research on my great-great-grandfather, Tobias Melchor. If you recall, we were trying to determine who his parents were. Some people said it was Jacob Melcher and Sarah Strouse but you believed it was Michael Melchor and his wife but you could not verify it or prove it.
So, just in case you lost track of me or my email address, if you have ever come across anything more on this family. I have been able to tie in other families from Bucks County (Pile, Strouse, Hoffman, Hauswirth, Leibkepp and a few others) that seem to be related somehow but I can never seem to get the missing link with Tobias Melchor's parents or siblings.
Thanks for your help in the past. It opened up some new doors for me.

"Jake"

[Source: 1910 Census, 23 April 1910]

On the census form for the birthplaces of father and mother, the birthplace of Oliver H. Melchor's father, Tobias, was given as Pennsylvania. This would throw into doubt the supposition that Tobias may have been a "stowaway" as Annette Lembke thought a possibility.

NOTE: The 1920 Census also showed Oliver's parents being born in Pennsylvania. Even the 1880 census record for Tobias shows him as being born in Pennsylvania as well as his parents.

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 5 September 2013]

From the church records I have been able to find, it would appear that Tobias's church habits were 'sporadic'. He and Susanna had at least some of their children baptized but I have been unable to find records for all the children. Oliver appeared to attend with some frequency which is not unexpected since he did go into the ministry. However, communion records for Tobias are sparse. He did attend Easter Sunday on 28 March 1869 at St. Luke Evangelical. Oliver and Hannah, John's widow, also took communion that day. Josiah was listed under the catechumens for that date. Not having searched each and every record of communion, I cannot say how often Tobias actually attended. However, I can say with all assurance that some of his children, in particular Oliver, Josiah, and Amandus attended much more ffrequently. This is not a criticism of my ancestor but merely an observation.

Although Tobias is apparently buried in the Nockamxon cemetery, there is no mention of his death or burial in the church record that I could find. This is very curious considering the fact that his son, Oliver, was the pastor at the church at the time of Tobias's death. We can only speculate about the reason for this omission.

Re: OWM

An additional thought or two. Tobias Melcher left Susannah Hoffman and married again, but I forget the name and circumstances, such as whether she died, and he remarried. The German family name was Melcher, and Oliver Hoffman Melcher, one of Tobias' sons, was a traveling minister in Bucks County. I have visited his churches, and there is still family there. Oliver H decided that he was a scholar and decided to change the name to Melchior, which was the name of one of the Maji, the Wiseman of the East, in the Jesus Christ history. The name was too difficult for the congregations, a group of farmers, so he decided to drop the I in the name. Thus, Melchor. It was then restored, allegedly by D. Montfort Melchior. I have many of these stories and memories, so you can pump me for what I am worth.

Marriage Notes:

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

A number of the children of Tobias Melchior and Susanna Hoffman have names that are very similar to some of the children of Michael Melchior and Mary Heany. Of course, this may mean nothing at all. However, it may also be a clue to a possible relationship of Tobias (a son?) to Michael and Mary Melchior. Could Tobias have named some of his children after his own brothers and sisters?

Tom Myers, who has provided me with very useful information in the past, did some research on Jacob Melchior who my family indicates was the father of Tobias Melchior. He concluded that Jacob was NOT the father of Tobias. He believes the more likely scenario is that Michael Melchior was the father of both Jacob and Tobias although no proof of this has been found to date. Mr. Myers noted that Michael Melchior had a male under the age of 10 living with him during the 1820 census which could very well have been my Tobias.

Comment by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 16 June 2006:
In the 1900 census for Haycock Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania taken on 11 June 1900, Caroline Melcher or Melchor (b. May 1815) was living in the household with Reed Laubenstein (b. November 1826), Sarah Laubenstein (b. November 1836) and Laura Laubenstein (b. May 1874. Caroline was listed as "mother" but did not list any children (living or dead). Could she have been the mother of Sarah Laubenstein from a previous marriage? When she married Tobias, she was already 45 so she very likely could have been married previously. Tobias Melchor's daughter, Sarah, was married to Elias Kiser so she could not be the Sarah Laubenstein listed in this household.

Additional Comment from John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 16 June 2006]

Another interesting tidbit ... Reed Laubenstein and wife, Catharine, were living next door to Elias and Sarah Melchor Keiser in the 1870 census of Nockamixon Township (Upper Black Eddy post office) in Bucks County. Was this pure coincidence, an error on the part of the census taker in either 1870 or 1900, or is it significant?

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

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 24 February 2008]

It is possible that Caroline was the wife of Ephraim Textor who had a daughter Sarah born in November 1837 and baptised at Tohickon in March 1838. This should be checked further ...

Additional Comment from John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 6 February 2009]

There was an Ephraim Gessner/Gexter/Textor, age 35, living in Haycock with a wife, Caroline, also 35 and several children including a Sarah, age 15 on the 1850 Census (page 9). It is possible, speculative at this time, that this was the Caroline who later married Tobias Melcher and the Sarah who later married Reed Laubenstein with whom Caroline Melcher was living in 1900.

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

Speculation by John-Pierre Hannam that this may be the Caroline who later married Tobias Melcher. The daughter, Sarah, may have been the wife of Reed Laubenstine with whom Caroline was living in 1900.
