From Pioneers of Old Hopewell by Ralph Ege. Published by Race & Saridge (?) Hopewell 1905 (written notes of Ida VanArsdale?)

James B. VanArsdale of Raritan married Anna Maria Lewis both descendants of ISAAC VAN ARSDALE who was sent to America in 1645 by Holland Gov't or a Company in Holland to investigate white clay deposits with a view to using such clay for pottery. About to return home he was advised of a pestilence in Holland and of the death of his wife and children- he thenceforth settled in Flatlands, L.I. Isaac VanArsdale married a Mrs. Janse (Johnson). Two Children were born- Simon and Gertrude who became the progenitors of two of the largest families in this country.
Gertrude married Cornelius Peterson Wyleoff (?) Oct 18, 1698 who purchased land in Franklin (?) township in 1703.
Wyleoff family in this region are descendants through her from Isaac Van Arsdale as well as other collateral branches of the VanArsdale family many of whom settled in Hopewell Township who have traced their geneology to Isaac VanArsdale through eight generations.
About thirty of the names of VanArsdale are found on the roster as enrolled among the officers and (illeg.) of the Continental Army from Somerset County.

Notes for JAN PAUWELSZ VAN AEDSDAELE:
From the Jaarbook, Central Bureau of Genealogy, Amsterdam, Holland.
Author:E. TH. Unger
On Nov 21, 1642, Jan Pouwelsz van Aertsdal buys a house with ground in the Naaijerstraat for 600 guilders from Jacob Joosten Dammelaer [next to Grietje Claes, widow of Jacob Aertsz van Waes to the Southside, and to the Northside PieterDaemsz Vermeul]. The house carries a mortgage of 700 guilders. On april 8, 1650 his neighbor Pieter Daemsz Vermeul transfers his house to Jan Pouwlesz van Aertsdael.

On 10 may 1652, Jan Pouluszn van Aersdael and his sons sign a contract not to divide the inheritance of Geertje Halters. In return it is agreed that son Philip may live in and work the largest of the two houses in the Naaijerstraat, with the proviso that he will look after his younger brothers and also pay the interest on the mortgage. His father may also live and work in the same house and the house next door will be rented out.

On 10 Mar 1654, Philip Jansz Van Aesdael agrees to take on the guardianship of the underage children of the late Jan Poulissen Van Aesdaele and his wife Geertje Philips.

On 21 Mar 1654, the children of the late Jan Poulissen van Aesdaele request permission to sell the two houses on the Eijerstraat in the latter's estate "especially since they are mortgaged for more than they seem to be worth". Since one of the children is still underage the need the permission of the town council which they obtain.

On 24 Apr 1654 Philip Jansz van Aersdalen, on behalf of himself and his brothers, also on behalf of Symon Jansz van Aesdalen, his overseas brother and as gaurdian for his youngest brother, all of them being heirs of Jan Pouwlesz van Aersdalen, transfers to Pieter van Stompwijk two houses and land on the Naaijersrtaat for 1130 guilders. The largest house had a mortgage of 500 guilsers helf by maerten Jacobusz Verrijn and a ground tax of 26 stuivers, 4 pence a year to the deaconate. The other house was free and clear.

6. SIMON JANSZ5 VAN AERSDALE (JAN PAUWELSZ4 VAN AEDSDAELE, PAUWEL PAUWELSZ3 VAN AEYSDALE, PAUWEL JOOSTENSZ2 VAN HAESDALE, JOOSTEN1) was born 27 February 1627/28 in Nukerke, Oost Vlanderen, Belgium4, and died 29 October 1710 in Ammersfoort/Flatland, Kings Co, New York.

Notes for SIMON JANSZ VAN AERSDALE:
Flatlands Town Records, page 93

On Nov 19, 1660, Simon Jansz signed a declaration as to the lands of "Pieter Claessen" as "Symen Jansen Van Arsdalen".

---

Flatlands Town Records, Deeds, Miscellaneous, 1661-1831, Page 510.

1662, Apr 3 - Simon Jansen Van Aertsdalen (Magistrate) was one of the signers of a petition to the honorable Peter Stuyvesant and the Council of New Netherland to determine the boundries of the village of Amersfoort and Midwout.

--
Simon Jansz was selected to represent Amersfoort in the convention holden at New Amsterdam, on Jul 3, 1663, to engage several Dutch Towns to keep up an armed force for public protection. (The register of New Netherland, page 143.)

I received this information from Ruth Van Arsdale in PA. It was organized by Edward Van Arsdale, from Long Island. He died several years ago, but was very active in researching the Van Arsdalen family. Other information comes from Mabel Spell. I'll send it along if you need it.
Here is the paragraph, it is from 10 pages i copied many years ago, but it was before I knew that my mother's family (Van Orsdoll ) was the same as the Van Arsdalen family. So I didn't seem to write down what it was.
page 15:" It has been said that Symon Jansen was commissioned by the Dutch goverment to investigate the possibility of establishing a pottery manufacturing business in New Amsterdam, that he had a wife and two children who remained in Holland and who died of the plague shortly before his scheduled return to Holand. When he received the news of their deaths, he decided to remain in America. However, Mabel Spell disagreed with this statement. She believed that Symon Jansen was unmarried when he arrived in New Amsterdam in 1653 at the age of 24."

Jo, Here is another account from a letter written in the 1920's and is on file at the Ind.State Library pamphlet file. It is written by a Mr. Webster. The four page file is Titled : Sketch of the VanArsdalen Family.
"The VanArsdall who was the ancestor of that family in this country arrived at New Netherlands from Holland at an early period inthe ship Dynasty, empowered by the Government, or some company in Holland, to examine the country about New Amsterdam to ascertain whether it was practicable to establish in this country a pottery for the manufacture of china ware. After fulfilling the object of his mission,, and with his baggage on board the vessel awaiting the day to sail for his native land, he received a letter from his father stating that a pestilence was then raging there and that his wife and two children had departed this life. This sad news changed his design of returning to holland and he settled at Flatlands on Long Island. There he married. [ then follows a long totally misinformed line of people ] Most of the rest of the people settled in Mercer co. KY and eventually moved to Crawfordsville, ind. There is an abstract of a Christopher VanArsdall's Rev.War Pension file. He lived in Ky and Gibson co. Ind. His age at application was 95 years old. I'll bet he had a new very young wife !!!!!

Since his family name seemed to indicate a Dutch background as most likely, one of Simons descendants some years ago asked the CBG to undertake a thorough research project. The records at the CBG revealed that the name Van Arsdale occasionally showed up in the early 17th century in the city of Leiden. As this was the only connection it seemed reasonable to start the project there in the municipal archives. From Leiden the trail led to Gouda where finally the papers (including the letters) were discovered pertaining to the legacy of fl.1000 to Simon or his issue under the will of 1 March 1707 of his niece Geertuijt van Heasdael (!). It turned out later (after our research was completed) that someone already had written an article on the distribution of Geertruijt's estate (D.J. Knoops 1950). Simon Jansz van Aersdal is named in this paper, but the fact that he lived in New Netherland was not mentioned.. As a result the importance of the article for the American van Arsdal family was not recognized.

Further research showed that before his departure (1653) Simon had been married in Amsterdam to a certain Marijtje Baltusdr., whom he left behind and who died in 1655 in Amsterdam. She gave him two children both of whom died at a young age. Simon was a potter in Amsterdam, an occupation which he seemed to have exercised in his early days in New Netherland as well. The pre-marriage papers (to the above Marijtje Baltusdr. in Amsterdam show that he was born about 1627 (which agrees with American data) in "Niekerck". From other family sources it is clear that this was meant to be the village of Nukerke, near Oudenaarde in East Flanders. Jan Poulusz van Aersdal, first a carpet weaver, later a mustard maker, and his wife Geertje Philipsdr. Halters were according to some documents in Gouda the parents of Simon. Jan Poulsz van Aersdal moved to Gouda around 1642, where he became a member of the reformed church, and bought a house in the Naaijerstraat. He also bought the house next door and later, in 1650, he combined the two houses into one in 1753. Since that time the house probably changed little, although it is unclear how much of the original two houses remained.


Note: On 1 March 1707 Pieter Verveen and his wife Geertruijt van Haesdaele, living in Gouda, made their last will and testament. The surviving partner will have full control over the estate. Thereafter, after deduction of legacies (1,000 guilders a year plus 1,000 guilders in cash to Philippina Joosten van Haesdaelen and an amount of 500 guilders for Lijsbeth Hensbeeck) the remainder shall be divided one half amongst the closest reletives of Pieter, the other half for those of Geertruijt. Furthermore an amount of 1,000 guilders shall be set aside as a legacy, instead of distribution for Geertruijt's uncle Symon Jansz van Haesdaelen, living in New Netherland, or his heirs. However if this sum is not claimed within six years after the death of the longest living spouse, then that amount shall be distributed amongst the other heirs.(Will executed before Johan van Middelant, Notary in Gouda).

[Source: Somerset County Historical Quarterly Vol VIII, 1919, pages 97 - 101]

It has been stated that an "Isaac" Van Arsdale was the first immigrant, arriving in 1645, and that he heads the entire line of Van Arsdales in this country. Who discovered his name to have been "Isaac" and the date of his arrival is a puzzle to the writer. The account which is possessed by various members of the family in manuscript, reads as follows, not giving the name of the first American progenitor:

"The Van Arsdale who was the ancestor of that family in this country, arrived at New Netherlands from Holland at an early period in the ship 'Dynasty,' empowered by the Government, or some Company, in Holland to examine the country about New York to ascertain whether it was practicable to establish in this country a pottery for the manufacture of China ware. After fulfilling the object of his mission and with his baggage on board the vessel awaiting the day to set sail for his native land, he received a letter from his father stating that a pestilence was then raging there, and that his wife and two children had departed this life. This sad news changed his design of returning to Holland, and he settled at Flatland on Long Island. There he married a Miss Jansen. His son, his only child as far as ascertained, Simon Jansen Van Arsdalen, became a man of standing in his native town."

In Ege's "Pioneers of Old Hopewell," the above substantial facts appear, but there the name of this first ancestor is interpolated as "Isaac." The fact seems overlooked, however, that as his son was "Symon Jansen," it should prove that, if the story be otherwise correct, the man who first came over was Jan Van Arsdalen and not "Isaac." Mr. Ege (now deceased) says that "all the family records have been preserved for a period of two hundred and fifty years," but no clue is given as to by whom.

Bergen, in his "Early Settlers of King's County" (p. 309), and also in his later "Bergen Family" (p. 308), states that "Symon Janse Van Arsdalen" emigrated in 1656 and is "the common ancestor" of the family in this country. As to his being "the common ancestor," Mr. Bergen is certainly correct, for even if his father preceded him, nevertheless as he is stated to have had but one son, Symon, this would make of Symon a "common ancestor."

Now the certain fact is that Symon was not a native; was not born in this country, but arrived here in the year 1653, as proven by the official roll of those taking the oath of allegiance at Flatlands between Sept. 26 and 30, 1687. He is thereon enrolled as--


"Simon Janse Van Aerts Daalen 34 Jeare."
This means that he had been 34 years in this country. All others on the roll who were born in America are classed as "native." (See "Doc. Hist. of N. Y., Vol. I, p. 431).
It is uncertain how old Symon (using his own spelling of his Christian name) was when he arrived. He may have come with his father, but it cannot be that his father married in this country and then Simon was born here. From another entry in the same family manuscript quoted from above, it is clear Symon must have been at least twenty-one when he received a deed for land in 1660. This statement is:

"March 27, 1660, he [Symon] received by conveyance from Jacob, Peter and William Conover [Cowenhoven] a tract of land in Flatlands. On May 28, 1675, he received a tract in the same town from Governor Stuyvesant and Usian Bircan."

He was also a magistrate in 1661. So we assume Symon was born about 1638, if not earlier, and in Holland. We consider, therefore, that he heads the family in America, and believe his father's name was Jan.

Before taking up Symon's family, it may be well to state what that careful historian, James Riker, Jr., says in his "Annals of Newtown" (p. 307):

"The Van Arsdale family derive their origin from Jan Van Arsdale, a Knight of Holland, who, in 1211, erected the castle (now county house) Arsdale, and from it took his name. His armorial bearings now constitute the public arms of the bailiwick of Arsdale. From him descended Symon Jansen Van Arsdalen, who emigrated to New Amsterdam in 1653 and located at Flatlands, where he served as a civil magistrate and an elder of the Dutch church; and our records prove him to have been a person of means, education and influence. He died about 1710, leaving sons Cornelius and John, from whom the entire Van Arsdale family in this country have sprung."

This, agreeing with Bergen, confirms what we have already said of Symon. According to Bergen he signed his name to documents "Symon Jansen Van Arsdalen." The spelling of his surname on the allegiance roll indicates that it was pronounced Van Ars-doll-an," giving to the "a" its broad sound, so that in Dutch the modern name would be Ars-doll and not Ars-dale.

The reference to the coat-of-arms of the ancient family is that which Riker states appeared in a bookplate of 1703. In the usual Holland work containing coats-of-arms it does not appear. However, it is stated that, some years ago, the wife of ex-Governor Bedle brought from Holland a copy, and a reproduction of it has been made by a Plainfield artist for some members of the Van Arsdale family. The same has an irregular shield, with the usual four quarters. The first and fourth quarters consist of arrow heads upon a silver ground; the other quarters are plain red. The crest is a helmet, surmounted by what may be feathers, but has more the appearance of a tree. There is much other ornamentation in silver and gold, as was the custom in early Dutch and German armorials.

As in most Dutch families a claim is said to have been made to land on Manhattan by some Van Arsdales in the early part of last century. It is thus stated by a descendant, who has written to us from Nebraska: "The Van Arsdales had a claim on [at] Hell Gate, Manhattan Island; collected manuscripts and Bibles enough to fill a wagon to prove it; but the lawyer died, or something happened, and it came to naught. This was an old tale when my grandfather was young." The story may well be relegated to oblivion now, as it was probably the attempt of some attorney to make money.

In relation to the change of name from Van Arsdalen (often written Van Aersdalen) to Van Arsdale, it came about gradually after the year 1800, so that in many cases it is uncertain how the older members of the various families living between 1800 and 1825 or later signed the surname. The original name in Holland was, as has been stated, Arsdale, and not Arsdalen.

The American line then runs as follows:

1. SYMON JANSEN VAN ARSDALEN, who may have been b. in 1638, or earlier, in Holland. He was a magistrate of Flatlands, L. I., in 1661 and again in 1686. In 1677 he was a member of the Flatlands church. In 1687 he took the then-required oath of allegiance to the English crown. He was on the census list in 1698, and, it has been stated, died "about 1710," but we have seen no proof of his name on the records after 1701. Riker may have had some authority for fixing the "about 1710" date, unless it is a misprint.

Simon Jansen married Pieterje Wyckoff, daughter of Claes Cornelissen Wyckoff, and Margaret Van der Goss. She was born in this country, but her father emigrated hither in 1636. (See last QUARTERLY, p. 50).

CHILDREN OF SYMON J. VAN ARSDALEN (1) AND PIETERJE WYCKOFF:
(Order unknown)
2. GEERTJE, b. about 1660; m. Oct. 13, 1678, her cousin, Cornelis Pieterse Wyckoff, son of Pieter Claes Wyckoff and Grietje Van Ness. They resided at New Lotts, and their numerous children are well known. Four of their sons settled in Somerset in Franklin twsp., on 1,200 acres of land which Cornelis purchased. (See QUARTERLY, Vol. IV, p. 130 et seq.).

3. CORNELIS, of Flatlands, through whom the Somerset lines are derived, b. (perhaps about) 1662; d. 1745, as his will was probated in New York City April 19, 1745; m. (1) Tjelletje Rynierse Wizzelpenning; (2), Mar. 16, 1687, Aeltje Kouwenhoven; (3), May 2, 1691, Marretje Dirkse (parentage unknown). It is certain that Cornelius took the oath of allegiance when his father died (1687), and on the roll was entered thus: "Cornelis Simonsen Van Aerts daalen, native." Except that he had a farm at Flatlands, and one at Gravesend purchased of his father in 1700, and d. leaving a will of April 25, 1738, probated Apr. 19, 1745, we have no further knowledge of him than above stated.

As to Cornelis' first wife, a Wizzelpenning, we have no knowledge. Aeltje Kouwenhoven was b. Dec. 14, 1665 and d. about 1689, and was the dau. of William Gerretsen Couwenhoven (so signed his name) and Altie, dau. of Joris Dircksen Brinckerhoff. Marritje Dirckse may have been an Amerman, the dau. of Derck Jansen Amerman and Aeltje Paulus Vander Beeck, who emigrated in 1650 and settled in Flatlands, but this is uncertain.

While Cornelis, himself, never resided in Franklin twsp. (Somerset co.), it may be he purchased land there on which to settle a son, as in 1735 a Cornelius was taxed in Franklin on 200 acres of land. Or that may have been his nephew, son of his brother Jan.

In his will Cornelis made his wife "Maritie," sole executor, and gave to her all his estate, real and personal, for life; to his eldest son, Dirck, a silver tankard as his birthright; then, after his wife's death, the estate to his ten children, who are named, from which recitation of names we know their order of birth, except that the sons are all mentioned first and then the daughters. As to "Jannetie," whom he stated was by a "former wife," as she had had her mother's inheritance, she was not to share in anything further coming from her father's last wife.

4. JANNETJE, b. about 1670; m. (1), John (???); (2), Apr. 16, 1689, Gysbert Bogaert (son of Teunis, common ancestor of the Bogart family), a magistrate of Brooklyn. Several ch.

5. JAN, of Flatlands; sup. to have had four wives, Jannetje Dorlant, Lammetje Probasko, Sarah Van Voorhees and Libertje Newberrie. (See Bergen's "Early Settlers," p. 308). He d. in Jamaica, L. I., having been a leading member of the Flatlands Dutch church. Is said to have had six sons, JOHN,2 CHRISTOPHER, ABRAHAM and NICHOLAS. The writer judges Christopher was the Christoffel, who m. Magdalen Reynierson (see QUARTERLY, Vol. VI, p. 55) and who was one of the earliest members (1717) of the Dutch church at New Brunswick, his sons being JOHN, OKIE, CORNELIUS (these three had ch. bapt. at Six-Mile Run) and CHRISTOFFEL, Jr., of near Millstone. In 1735 Christoffel, Sr., lived in Franklin twsp., Somerset co., but was not a land owner. In 1745 he owned 200 acres there. ("Our Home," pp. 343, 406).

The quote below is from the "Pioneers of Old Hopewell" and is referenced above. As has already been pointed out above, the reference is to an 'Isaac Van Arsdale' which apparently is an error. However, the information is included here for reference.

[Source: Pioneers of Old Hopewell, page 62]

??James B. Van Arsdale and Anna M. Lewis were both descended--through different lines--from the first emigrant, Isaac Van Arsdale, who was sent to America in 1645 (either by the government of Holland or by a company there) to inspect the white clays to see if they were suitable for porcelain or pottery ware. Having fulfilled his mission, he was about to embark for home when he received a letter from his father stating that a great pestilence was raging in his native town and that his wife and children had all died during his absence. This intelligence caused him to change his purpose and instead of returning to Holland he settled in Flatlands, Long Island, which at that time was just beginning to settle with emigrants from his native land. He married a Miss Janse (Johnson) and their children, Simon and Gertrude, became the progenitors of two of the largest families in this country. Gertrude married October 13, 1678, Cornelius Peterse Wykoff, who purchased a very large tract of land in Franklin township, Somerset county, about 1703, and all the Wykoff family of this region are descended through her from Isaac Van Arsdale as well as other collateral branches of the Van Arsdale family, many of whom are settled in Hopewell township, and among whom the writer is included, who traces his genealogy to Isaac Van Arsdale through eight generations, all the family records having been preserved during a period of two hundred and fifty years. About thirty of the name of Van Arsdale are found on the roster, as enrolled among the officers and privates in the Continental army from Somerset county alone, besides the large number of the descendants of Isaac Van Arsdale who had lost the name by marriage.

Notes for SYMON JANSE VAN ARSDALEN:
Per family history accounts from Edward Van Arsdale of Long Island and a Mrs. Webster whose file "Sketch of the VanArsdalen Family" is filed in the Indiana State Library, Symon Van Arsdalen arrived at New Netherlands from Holland in the ship Dynasty with authorization from Holland to determine if the country around New Amsterdam was practical to establish a pottery for the manufacture of china ware. After filling this mission and preparing to sail back to Holland, he received a letter from his father stating that a pestilence had killed his wife and two children. After receiving that information he stayed at Flatlands on Long Island.

Another paper by E. TH Unger gives the name of his wife in Amsterdam as Marijtje Baltusdr. (probably Baltusdotter) who died in Amsterdam in 1655.

Notes for PIETERJE CLAESSEN CONELISZ VAN SCHOUW:
Pieterje Claesen van Schouw was baptized on Oct 28, 1640, at New Amsterdam.

This letter is from Bob Mason at bmason@TSO.Cin.IX.Net

The genealogy for Pieterje Van Shouw is given below. I pieced this together several years ago. Unfortunately, I have lost my original notes with the reference citation. I am sending the Van Shouw data, therefore, with the clear understanding that I cannot at this time vouch for its veracity. Hopefully the snippets of names found in the list may help another to confirm or refute all or part of the list. Following is my list for the Van Shouw branch of the family.

1. Jon Jonson Bla
+ Svantepolk Knutson
.....2. Knut Jonson Bla
......+ Katrina Bengsdatter
...........3. Ivar Knutson Bla, born 1356.
............+ Elin Larsdatter
................4. Elin Bla
.................+ Simon Christoferson
.....................5. Knut Simonson
..................... + Barbra Knus
..........................6. Erik Knutson
.......................... + Cajsa Gregorsdatter
...............................7. Erik Erikson
................................+ Anna Olafsdatter
....................................8. Peter Erikson
.................................... + Matilda Van Rouden
.......................................9. Cornelius Peterson, b:1560.
......................................... + Johanna Vandergross
...........................................10. Claes Cornelisze, born 1595.
..............................................+ ?
...............................................11. Pieterje Claesen Van Shouw, Born 1640.

I remember the reference explained the family, of obvious Scandanavian origin, became established in the Lowlands at a late date. This occurred either when Peter Erikson maried Matilda Van Rouden or when Cornelius Peterson married Johanna Vandergross. I believe it was the latter but I cannot remember with certainty. The fact that the "ze" suffix to show paternity occurs for the first time in the tenth generation suggests the family was "Hollandized" by then.

Cornelius, the second son, married his cousin, Gertrude Van Arsdale, daughter of his aunt Pieterje and Symon Van Arsdalen. He bought a large farm at Flatlands in Long Island, and, like his father, had eleven children, five girls and six boys. Later two of these sons came into possession of the homestead farm on Long Island, one of them being the ancestor of our present day historian of the family, William F. Wyckoff, Esq. This land now lies within the precincts of Brooklyn and is almost entirely built over. The other four sons of Cornelius settled on lands bought by their father in what is now Franklin township, in Somerset county, N. J., and stretching across the center of the township, as the first deeds read: "From a river called Millstone to the Indian Path." This path is now the county line and a part of the main highway from New York to Philadelphia. One of these four sons was the ancestor of Peter Wyckoff, of Wyckoff's Mills, who married Elizabeth Baird, both of whom we honor at these Baird-Wyckoff reunions, and was also the ancestor of myself. Cornelius died in 1746, at the great age of 95.

Cornelius Peter Wyckoff, son of Peter Claes Wyckoff, migrated to Middlebush, Somerset county, New Jersey, 1703, and purchased a large tract of land of about twelve hundred acres. A part of this became the homestead of the Wyckoff family in New Jersey, and is now (1907) in the possession of Jacob Wyckoff, who resides thereon. He was the father of four sons: John, Peter, Simon and Jacob. The line of descent is through John, the eldest son, to Art or Arthur, to John, to Peter, grandfather of Richard Wyckoff, who was born in New Brunswick, Middlesex county, New Jersey, and was a man of influence in the community in his time. He followed the occupation of farming, in which he was highly successful.

Cornelis Pieterse Wyckoff

CORNELIS2 WYCKOFF (Peter Claesen1) was born at Amersfoort, Long Island, New Netherland, about 1656, since his name appears upon the original documents of the Wyckoff family dated 1697, 1699, and 1703, as the second son, and since he married in 1678. Evidently he was named for his maternal grandfather, Cornelis van Nes. The record of his marriage translated from the records of the Flatbush Dutch Reformed Church reads "1678. Betrothed September 29, 1678, Cornelis Pietersz, young man from Amersfoort and residing there and Geertje Simons Van Arsdalen." On the same page is the record of the marriage, March 17, 1678, of his sister, "Geertje Pieters" to Christofel Janse Romeyne. On January 8, 1688, his name appears as "Cors Peterse" as a witness to the baptism of Anetie, daughter of his younger brother, "Marten Petersen," and wife "Hanna Willimse"--also witnessed by their sister, "Anetie Petersen" [ibid., 139].

That John Wyckoff of Middlebush, Somerset County, New Jersey, was his son is proved by his deed given to John for land there, and by his will, recorded on page 539 of liber 15 of wills in the office of the surrogate of the city of New York, an abstract of which follows:

That Cornelis Wyckoff, the testator, lived for twenty years after making his will is indicated by its having been proved in court on May 10, 1746. He was then about eighty-eight years old. His wife, Geertje van Aersdalen, had predeceased him at some time unknown after he made the will in 1726.

Cornelius Wyckoff, son of Pieter, was born in Holland, died about 1695, married Gertrude Van Arsdalen, daughter of Simon Van Arsdalen, on Oct. 13, 1678. He resided on and owned a farm in "Oatmond," or New Lots, Long Island, of 195 acres, which with other lands he bought in March, 1678. He also purchased 1200 acres in Middlebush, Somerset Co., N. J. Simon Van Arsdalen, the father-in-law of Cornelius Wyckoff, came from Holland in 1653 and settled in Flatlands, where he was magistrate in 1660, 1661 and 1662; was a member of a provincial convention held July 6, 1663, to engage several Dutch towns to keep an armed force for public protection. He died after 1698.

Cornelius Wyckoff's daughter, Margaret, married (Judge) Jonathan Forman, the second son of High Sheriff Samuel Forman of Monmouth Co., N. J. (See paragraph 52.)

NOTE.--The foregoing facts concerning the Wyckoff family are from information furnished by Mrs. J. E. Noel of Tacoma, Washington, who is descended from Judge Jonathan Forman. As has been stated in paragraph 55, Philip Freneau, "The Poet of the Revolution," married Eleanor Forman, daughter of Samuel and granddaughter of Judge Jonathan Forman. Agnes Watson Freneau, second daughter of Philip Freneau, married Edward Leadbeater of New York. Their son, Edward Henry Leadbeater, born in 1822, died aged 45, was a well-known merchant in New York and San Francisco. He married Lucy S. Dodge, who was descended from Elder William Brewster, who came over in the Mayflower. The daughter of Edward H. and Lucy S. (Dodge) Leadbeater, Eleanor Freneau Leadbeater, married March 18, 1879, in New York, Lieutenant Commander J. E. Noel, U. S. Navy.

"John Wyckoff of the Raritans"

JOHN3 WYCKOFF (Cornelis2, Pieter Claesen1) was born at New Lots in Flatbush, about 1688 or 1689. The baptismal records of the Flatlands Dutch Reformed Church are lost. Some baptisms performed in the town by the visiting minister from the Flatbush church are recorded in the register of the latter church, but no record of the date of birth or baptism of John3 Wyckoff is obtainable. His birth may be placed about 1688-89, because of the known dates of the baptisms of some of his brothers and sisters, and because of his first marriage to Gertie Striker, October 11, 1709, recorded in the marriage records of the Flatbush Dutch Reformed Church. This first wife died by 1712 without having known issue. An entry in the account book of the Flatlands Dutch Reformed Church may refer to her: "June 9, 1711. Geertje Wyckoff for her place in Church--11-0."

Since John Wyckoff's second marriage is recorded in the register of the Flatbush church, evidently the ceremony was performed by the minister of that church:

1712, WYKOF. SCHENCK. Bans Oct., 26, 1712. Jan Wykof, widower, residing on the Raritans and born in Midwout and Neeltje Schenck, young dame, born and residing at New Amersfoort.

Her baptism is in the records of the same church: "1683. Nov., 23, at Amersfort, Neeltje, Jan Martensz Schenk, Jannetje Stephens. [Witnesses.] Elbert Stoothoof, Sara Roelofs." For her Schenck ancestry, please see page 145. Sixteen months after marriage, John3 Wyckoff received from his father a deed for one-fourth part of the 1,200 acres the father had purchased in 1701 in that part of the present Franklin Township, Somerset County, New Jersey, that was in the county of Middlesex in 1701, before the county line was changed. The original deed is now owned by the Somerset County Historical Society, and preserved in that society's library at Somerville, viz. (abstract):

1713-14, March 4, Cornelius Wyckoff of the Township of Flatbush in Kings County and the Island of Nassau, at a place called the New Lotts . . . to John Wyckoff of the Raritans in the County of Middlesex . . . for ś75 . . . one half of the tract in the county of Middlesex at the Raritans next to the heirs of Hendrick Lott, and adjoins the Millstone river, the lands of Theodorus Polhemus, the lands of the said Cornelius Wyckoff, and the lands of the heirs of Hendrick Lott. [Endorsed]--For one-half of the plot of 600 acres running from the middle line in Franklin township to the Millstone river.

(Signed) CORNELES WYCOF.

NOTE: I believe Bergen (see below) is incorrect about his marriage to Tjelletje Reiners Wizzelpenning. The dates for her supposed marriage to Cornelis Simonse Van Arsdalen and her marriage to Albert Van Voorhees do not make sense. The only possible answer to a marriage to Cornelis Simonse would be that they got divorced. Otherwise, Bergen is probably incorrect.

NOTE: The following comment may help to clarify some of my own confusion (and apparently many others) on the marriage(s) of Tjelleje Wizzelpennng. This reference indicates she married only once (to Albert Stevense Van Voorhees). Unfortunately, the author of the note below does not give a source as proof.

[Source: Henry B. Hoff, compiler, Genealogies of Long Island Families, Volume II, The Van Kouwenhoven-Conover Family, Page 613]

As has already been pointed out by this compiler (Rec. v,79, p. 82), Cornelius Van Arsdale was married only twice. Tjelletje Rynierse Wizzelpenning, whose name is repeatedly given as that of his first wife, was married to Albert Stevense Van Voorhees, her only marriage, and bore no relationship to the Van Arsdale family.

General Notes:

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

NOTE: The Somerset County Quarterly, Vol VIII, page 100, attributes four wives (Jannetje Dorlant, Lammetje Probasco, Libertje Newberrie, and Sarah Van Voorhees) to this Jan, son of Symon and Pieterje Van Arsdalen. Teunis Bergen, in his "Register of the Early Settlers of Kings County" appears to attribute the same four wives to Jan Simonse but it is unclear (to me at least) whether Jan Simonse was supposed to be a son of Symon and Pieterje or a son of Symon's son, Cornelis Van Arsdalen. Bergen names him as Jan Simonse which implies he was the son of Simon but the dates given for Jan's first marriage (according to Bergen) to Jannetje Dorlant on 22 October 1719 would have made him 52 years old before he ever married. There must be some confusion here as to which Jan married who! One of these sources must be wrong. I believe the Somerset County Quarterly is incorrect in this case since it refers to the "Register" entry (page 308)

SIMON WYCKOFF, baptized November 23, 1683; recorded in the same church; the baptism is witnessed by the same grandparents. He married Geertje van der Vliet, removed to Somerset County, New Jersey; lived and died on part of the 1200-acre tract that his father provided for the four sons. Simon became a leader in the long and strenuous contentions over matters of religion, as appears from Messler's History of Somerset County, and the Ecclesiastical Records of New York State. He also was a party to a violent controversy over land rights. He fought the proprietors of the province of East Jersey, defied the English Governor of New Jersey, was pronounced a traitor, arrested, and confined in the jail at Perth Amboy--from which he was forcibly rescued by a party of his friends. He left two sons and five daughters.

General Notes:

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

Some sources show Sarah as the daughter of Pieter and Elizabeth Van Pelt. Based on her date of birth (1720) and the estimated year of Willemtje Schenck's death (bef 1716) this makes sense. However, the parentage of Anne Elizabeth Van Pelt and her date of birth is in question.

RICHARD "Derck" SEBRING3 1709 - 1757+ & MARIA VAN ARSDALLEN

RICHARD "Derck" SEBRING bp 27 Apr 1709 Raritan Reformed Dutch Church, NJ (witnesses: uncle Derck Volkertse & wife); (son of Roelof Janse Sebring 1675-1756 & Chrystyntje (Volkertse) born 1678). Derck was listed in the tax list for 1735, Franklin tp, Somerset Co., New Jersey, with 400 acres of land, seven cows and six sheep. In 1757 he was a deacon of the North Branch Church (Readington).

Rev. Minor Swick says of Derck Sebring: "Some of his descendants settled in Tompkins County, New York; were founders of the now extinct Dutch Reformed Church of Carolina. Later descendants settled in Michigan, and some founded the town of Sebringville, Ontario, Canada."(*)

Derck married, c 1732,

MARIA VAN ARSDALLEN born 17__; died 17__ (daughter of Cornelis Symonse Van Arsdallen; and a sister of Cornelius, Simonse and Stoffel Van Arsdallen, each of whom owned 200 acres of land nearby).

Sebring children:

Chrystine bp 17 May 1734 New Brunswick Church, Middlesex Co., New Jersey.

Derck bp 25 May 1740 Raritan RDC, NJ; a cooper ("cooper tools, old",
in estate inventory); died c Dec 1820, Cayuta, Tioga
Co. (now Schuyler) NY; md c 1860 Madelena (poss.Steele, cf p. 513).

Derck enlisted as a private in the Revolutionary War, at Englishtown, NJ, Capt. Helm's Co., Col. Shrives' Regt., for 9 months; re-enlisted at Knowlton for 4 months; was discharged at Minisink. He was in the battles of Monmouth and Newark, and several smaller skirmishes. He was sometimes shown in records as "Sebring", sometimes "Seaburn".

By 1790, Derck and Madelena had moved to Lower Smithfield township, Northampton Co. (now Monroe Co.), Pennsylvania (census). The 1800 census shows Derck's three sons and families living in the same township. All appeared on tax lists for 1799 and 1800, and all but Derck (Richard, Jr.), on the 1801 tax list.

Derck (1740-1820) moved with his son Cornelius to Lansing, Tompkins Co., New York, and later to the Town of Cayuta, Tioga County (now Schuyler Co.), New York.** There, in 1818, he applied for a federal pension for his war service on Certificate No. 17346, and it was approved in 1820, pension S-43115. Derck's son Cornelius signed an affidavit in 1820 stating that his father was in failing health, and that Cornelius was his sole support. The last pension payment was dated 7 Dec 1820. This is probably the month Derck died, or Jan 1821.

16. PHILIP, b. at Flatbush, L. I., Feb. 25, 1702; d. June 28, 1796; m. (1) Apr. 30, 1726, Jane Van Dyke (dau. of Hendrick and Engeltie Van Dyke, of Red Mills, near Brooklyn, N. Y.), who was b. 1706 and d. Nov. 23, 1743; and (2) April 13, 1750, (license at Trenton dated Apr. 9) Hannah Macknish (or Magnish), of Middlesex co., who d. Sept. 12, 1776.

It is Philip's descending line which is hereinafter treated. What follows is by no means a complete line of Philip's descendants, but is such as has come to the writer's knowledge. Valuable assistance in this has been given by Mrs. Henrietta Huff and Mr. John A. Powelson, of Pluckemin, and others.

Philip must have settled in 1728, soon after his first marriage, within the bounds of the Readington congregation. On May 20, 1728, he received a deed from his father-in-law, Hendrick Van Dyke, for 230 acres of land, adjoining "the brook," Robert Burnett and (???) Dumont. While the exact location is uncertain it is to be judged it was in present Branchburg, possibly in present Hillsborough township, as a Philip Van Arsdale was among the inhabitants of Hillsborough in 1751. This land came afterward into the ownership of John, Philip's son, as in 1793 a sheriff's deed sold it away from John to Philip, Jr., the deed being recorded at Somerville and reciting the earlier deed from Hendrick Van Dyke. (Somerset Deeds, Book A, p. 296). As on Jan. 16, 1783, Philip (presumed to be Philip, Sr.) sold 240 acres of land near Pluckemin to his son Hendrick, it may be Philip spent his later days on this Pluckemin farm. In fact a deed to Johannes Powelson, of near Pluckemin, May 1, 1767, stated it was along the line of Philip Van Arsdalen. The fact that Philip's wife, Jane, joined the Readington church in 1733, and he in 1741, makes it certain, we think, that he originally lived nearer Readington than to either Pluckemin or Somerville, but it is also probable that, before 1767, he had gone to near Pluckemin.

Philip's will of Oct. 23, 1787, was probated Aug. 10, 1796 (Trenton Wills, Book 35, p. 405), but only mentions his four living sons, Hendrick, Philip, John and Jacob. As noted below, some of Philip's children were bapt. at Readington (1729-'34) and one at Somerville (1738); but subsequent baptisms have not been discovered. (For ch., see infra).

43. LUCAS BERGEN, baptized July 10th, 1715; died March, 1803; m. Susanna Schenck,1 who died Oct., 1810;

1 Susanna Scbenck was a descendant of Roelof Martense Scbenck, born in 1620; who emigrated in 1650, settled in Flatlands, where he obtained a patent, Jan. 29th, 1661, for 23 morgens and 75 rods of land, and where he purchased, in 1674, 200 acres of the heirs of Govert Loockermans, and in 1678, of his brother Jan Martense Schenck, the one-half of the mill and mill farm in said town. Some of his descendants claim that they are descended from the Schenken or Butler, of Charlemagne, but this is probably hypothetical. Roelof
and Jan Martense Schenck, as per researches of the Rev. Garret C. Schenck, through Col. Vander Dussen, of Holland, were probably descendants of Peter Schenck, of Nydack, born at Goch, Holland, in 1547; m. May 17th, 1580, Johanna Scherpenzeel, which Peter was a brother of the famous Marten Schenck, an officer of rank and military renown, a soldier of fortune, who flourished, and whose name frequently appears in the histories of that period.

ISAAC JANSZ VAN ARSDALEN
Material researched and/or transcribed by Barbara L. Van Norsdall

Isaac's baptism is recorded in the Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, vol 17, #4, p 84.

Isaac Van Arsdalen, his half brother Johannis Van Arsdalen, and William Vanderbilt all died in 1772 at the Conewago Colony, Strabahn Township, York County, PA. They were all very young men. Isaac was in his 27th year at his death.

According to a posting by Judy Cassidy to the Dutch-Colonies mail list at Rootsweb. com, there was a problem with financial depression in New Jersey due to the situation with England combined with conditions that affected farming. Also the area was becoming more "English".

According to an article in the Vanguard, the newsletter of the van Aersdalen Family Association,Vol. 1, No. 1 by Charles R. Vanorsdale, the Dutch community of Conewago was established on the western edge of Scotch-Irish communities in what is present day Adams County, Pennsylvannia. It is about halfway between Gettysburg and York. This area was opened up in the mid 1760's as prime farm land.

Charles R. Vanorsdale, Vol 1 No 1 Page 2 of Vanguard, the newsletter of the Van Aersdalen Family Association, states that "Dutch patronymic practice (of naming children) resulted in a profusion of many Van Arsdales with the same Christian name. CRV estimated that, by 1783, there were at least 6 Simons, 4 Corneliuses, 2 Abrahams, 4 Johns, 5 Isaacs, and possibly 5 Garrets" all living in the Conewago Colony.

The Conewago Colony of Strabahn Township, York County, (now Adams CO), Pennsylvannia was established in 1765 and had stopped growing in 1771. A church was built in 1768. The Rev. Cornelius Cozine was pastor of the church from 1772 until 1788. It was a flourishing Dutch Church until 1793. The colony was beginning to disintegrate and go "West" after 1790. "West" was upstate New York in the finger lake district and Kentucky. By 1817 there was hardly a family left. The church was sold to a tavernkeeper. The reason for the abondonment of Conewago by such a large Ducth population has never been satisfactorily told. At first there were ten families who went to the Vicinity of Cayuga Lake, New York, but most of the others went to Kentucky, first to White Oak Springs in Mercer County, and one mile above Boonesborough in Henry County. Some of the Kentucky group later moved on to Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, and Oregon. This was extracted from "Cozine" by Mrs. E. T. Dorr.

In January 1771, "Isaac Vanarsdall" witnessed a deed in Frederick County, Virginia (Frederick County, Virginia Deed Book Series, vol. 5: 1771-1775, pp 36-37, Amelia C. Gilreath, Nokesville, VA, 1991). An article in the July 2002 issue of Vanquard Vol V, No. 1 by various authors states that Evidence suggests that this was the subject Isaac, as his brothers John and Cornelius also appear in early Frederick County church and deed records.

The following are entries from the Court records of York County , Pennsylvania concerning the death of Issac Vanarsdal in 1772.
From York County Court House, York, Pa, Wills and Index, 1770 - 1776 Vol 3C

Material researched and/or transcribed by Barbara L. Van Norsdall

Annatie Pietersen's christening is listed in the Harlingen Dutch Reformed Church records for the 4 Apr 1747 with her parents listed as Pieter Pietersen and Catrina Hegeman. When her son Peter was christened in 1770 the witnesses were Peter Peterson and Eliza Peterson. Perhaps Catrina died and Eliza was his second wife or she may have been a relative of Pieter.

The fact that Hannah Petersen had three children, their names, and that she married Michael Meyer after Isaac's death in 1772 are documented in the Orphans Court Records of York CO, Pennsylvania and are included under Isaac's name. As was the custom at that time, if she did not have a child named after her deceased husband, she named her first male child with Michael after Isaac.3

Cornelius Amerman was born on January 15, 1738 in Jamaica, Queens, New York to Derrick Amerman and Margaret Polhemus. He was baptized January 15, 1738 in the Jamaica Dutch Reformed Church in Jamaica, Queens, New York.

Cornelius Amberman married Hepsobel about 1757 (See Amerman, Ammerman, Amberman Family Chart At The Jamaica Public Library) and they had one child, Derrick.

1. Derrick was born to Cornelius and Hepsobel in Queens County, and was baptized May 8, 1759 at the Reformed Dutch Church in New Hempstead, New York. Derrick married Margaret Ranous (b1762) about 1779 in Poughkeepsie, New York. Derrick and Margaret had four children.

Derrick can be found on the First Census 1790; lists in Dutchess County, page 91, Heads of Families. He served 1778-1779, as a private in Captain Samuel Pell's Company, Col. Philip VanCortland's regiment in the Revolutionary War. He applied for a pension, 1837, and his claim was allowed. Derrick died in 1813 in Dutchess County, New York at the age of 54 years.

Sometime before 1761, Hepsobel died and on the 19th of November 1761, Cornelius married Lambert Van Ausdalla in Jamaica, Queens, New York (m.b. 5:233).

Cornelius and Lambert had four children Daniel, Gurtye (Gertrude) Charity, Elizabeth "Betty" and Sarah b. 12th May 1764.

2. Daniel married Elizabeth, the daughter of Bernadus Bennett, and died April 6, 1841.

Cornelius' second wife Lambert died before December 1764.

Cornelius' third marriage can be found in the New York Marriages list, 1600-1784; performed between Cornelius Ammerman and Abigil Okely on the 22nd of December 1764; Record M.B., Voume VIII, OSPage 463.

6. Abigil and Cornelius had one child, Jan John Amerman Amberman who was baptised in 1766. Jan "John" married Antie Brinkerhoff about 1784. They had seven children.

Cornelius and his son Derick Amberman served as Minute Men From Jamaica, Queens during the Revolutionary War in 1775. He was a Private serving under John Skidmore, Esq., Captain; Jacob Wright, Gent., first Lieutenant; Nicholas Everit, Gent., second Lieutenant, and Ephraim Marsten, Gent., Ensign

Cornelius served as a Private in Capt. Nathaniel Norton's Co., 4th New York Battalion, commanded by Lieut. Col. F. Weissenfels in 1779. Cornelius Ammerman of Captain Norton's Company was appointed a Corporal in Sd Company, his appointment commenced on November 1, 1780. Cornelius Ammerman/Amerman/Amberman died about sometime between 1783 and 1786. In 1786 Derrick requested bounty land for he and his 5 other siblings, since his father Cornelius was deceased; this was granted in 1792.

Ancestry.com has Cornelius listed as Sgt. Cornelius Amberman, Roll box 69, Roll State: New York from U.S. Revolutionary War Rolls, 1775-1783 data base on-line, Provo, Utah, USA.

On August 17, 1786, the claim of Dirck Amerman, in behalf of himself and the other children of Cornelius Amerman, for a grant of such land as their said father was entitled to, he having served as soldier in the 2d New York Regiment, was recorded in a book dated 1987. The book is "New York (State) Secretary of State, Calendar of N. Y. Colonial Manuscripts Indorsed Land Papers in the Office of the Secretary of State of New York, 1643-1803; Compiled by E. B. O'Callaghan, Introduction by Peter Christoph" published by Harbor Hill Books, Harrison, New York, page 726.

[H2907a.FTW]

I do know from a certified marriage license that Elizabeth Sutton married John Polhemus Barkalow in Butler Co., OH, on 1 Feb. 1813. She died in Warren Co., OH, 28 Jan 1849. John Barkalow was born in Upper Freehold, Monmouth Co., New Jersey and died in Warren County also but on 4 August 1829, andElizabeth was left to rear their 9 living children. Both Elizabeth and John Sutton were buried in the Barkalow Cemetery (also known as Old Prairie Burying Ground) near Franklin, Warren Co. This was confirmed in Mr. Allen Betzler's findings in "New Jersey Transplants" and a photo I took before that cemetery was restored and fenced by the Georgia-Pacific Co. who maintains the grounds at the present time.

Even so there is no record in Warren Co. or adjoining counties regarding this Sutton family. The only record they could furnish was the marriage of my g.grandmother, Mary Barkalow to Edward Bond 27 Dec. 1849. They moved to Greenville, Darke Co., Ohio and later to Indianapolis, IN. I have listed their other children and vital statistics that I have uncovered about them. Tax records in 1820 show John Barkalow owned nothing more than a horse and cow so was not taxable. In 1830 Elizabeth Barkalow was listed in his place but was not taxable as owning nothing. Ten children were listed but only nine grew to maturity, married and moved to other counties to the west, into Indiana , Illinois and Arkansas.

I have records on most of Elizabeth and John' children, up to the present day in some instances, and am hoping someone reading this will recognize some surname and contact me with even the smallest clue. I did hear from one query that Elizabeth was known as "Aunt Betsy" by her nieces and nephews. Also, that they depended on John's brothers and sister for help. Also, they were thought to have lived in a "shack"on a corner of Aunt Sally Ten Eyck's farm.

The children of Elizabeth Sutton and John Barkalow were:

1. Tobias P. Barkalow ( probably for a brother) m. (1) Mary Van Tilburgh (2) Katherine Jenks

2. Sarah m. Richard Van Tilburgh (bro. of Mary)

3. William m. Elizabeth Ullery

4. Jane m. Abner Hall

5. Benjamin m. Hannah Andrews

6. Mary m. Edward Bond (of Warren Co. also)

7. Amy m. Thomas Everingham (or Everingham)

8. Derrick (also first name of another brother of John) m. Susanna Fairchild

9. John M.

10. Rachel died young.

Sisser shows this Hannah Monfort as dying about 1797 so it is possible this is not the Hannah who married John McIlhenny after the death of his first wife on 24 February 1829. However, the age at death (60) given for Hannah (Monfort) McIlhenny puts her birth at around 1795-1796 and, since she was apparently from Straban township, I think it is likely that this is the right person.

[John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 9 September 1999]

Francis apparently lived with Eliza and possibly Rosanna in Ohio for a time because all eight of his children were listed as having been born there on the 1850 PA Census (18 September 1850). At the time of the census, the youngest child was five years old so they must haved returned to Pennsylvania between 1845 and 1850. All eight of their known children were living with Francis and Rosanna in Straban Township, Adams County, Pennsylvania at the time of the 1850 PA Census. The mother of these children is unknown at this time.

NOTE: The following newspaper story may be about this Francis Monfort or it may be about his son or grandson. It is definitely about someone in that family since they are related to the Taughinbaugh family featured herein.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 21 July 2007

[Source: The Gettysburg Times, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 1 October 1983, "Civil War Reminiscences: A boy's memories of the Battle of Gettysburg"]

Francis Monfort caught his homespun linen pants on the fence when the Confederates started to charge. "He was momentarily checked and couldn't make his get away," said Mrs. Nancy W. Kammerer, Hunterstown, speaking about her grandfather's uncle.

She remembers her grandfather, Jacob W. Taughenbaugh, always enjoyed telling this story of his boyhood memories, Taughenbaugh was 14 and living in Huntertown at the time of the Battle of Gettysburg.

The Confederates entered Hunterstown from the east. Taughenbaugh watched the marching army come through. One of the Confederates came to Taughenbaugh's house asking for directions. The army wanted to know exactly where they were and where the roads led. They also wanted to know if any Union scouts were around.

When the Confederates found out there were a few scouts on the other side of Hunterstown they charged, This is the moment Francis Monfort got caught.

There was some shooting around the Taughenbaugh house. Twigs and tree branches fell and a bullet whizzed through a kitchen window coming to rest as it hit the cook stove. Taughenbaugh kept that flattened bullet for 80 years according to Mrs. Kammerer.

Taughenbaugh also told his children and grandchildren about his pony, Sam, a pinto pony from the Texas territory. Jacob McIlhenny, John Majors, Armstrong Taughenbaugh (Jacob's father). and young Taughenbaugh left home in early June prior to the Hunterstown's skirmish) because of rumors of the Confederate Army invading the north. The group traveled with their horses, Sam included, to York County. Taughenbaugh remembered a large number of people were on the roads traveling at the same time to hide their horses from the invading army.

The group of men and Jacob Taughenbaugh spent the night in York County returning to Hunterstown the next day. Taughenbaugh was told to scout the area for information about the invading army. Since there was none. the group returned home to Hunterstown, through York Springs. At this point there was no sight of the enemy, only rumors.

It was later that the enemy actually did arrive in Hunterstown. Taughenbaugh was upset, shed- ding a few tears when the army came to take their horses. The army did take all the horses ... all but Sam. Taughenbaugh often told his family that the army got the worst deal. Sam was faster and sturdier than the other horses because he was a Texas pony.

Another story Taughenbaugh related to his family was of hiding in the smoke house with Sam. He held the pony's nostrils to keep Sam from whinnying as the rebels rode past his farm.
Nov. 19, 1863 is a day never forgotten by Taughenbaugh. It was the day Abraham Lincoln came to Gettysburg to dedicate the National Cemetery. It was also the day Lincoln said to Jacob Taughenbaugh, "Sonny, did you come to town to see me?" as he shook the boy's hand.

The information contained in this article is from the boyhood memories of Jacob W. Taughenbaugh as related to his granddaughter Mrs. Nancy Weaver Kammerer.

General Notes:

This is possibly the individual, Henry Monfort, who with his brother, Jacob, built a farmhouse around 1848 that was used as a hospital after the battle of Gettysburg and has recently been restored and serves as the home of "Gettysbrew". It is not certain that the Henry and Jacob Monfort who originally built the farm were the sons of John and Sarah Van Arsdal Monfort but it is possible - indeed, likely. This farmhouse is located at 248 Hunterstown Road, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania 17325. According to ExplorePAHistory.com, it was the "second largest field hospital for confederate army".

The brick farmhouse was completed around 1848 and the architecturally significant PA Dutch brick-end barn was completed the following year. Henry Monfort and his brother, Jacob, built the house and farmed the land. A family letter written on 8 July 1863, only 5 days after the battle of Gettysburg, documents events on the farm. As Johnson's Division began to be evacuated from Culps Hill, the farm was converted into a Confederate Field Hospital. Over 1,300 Confederates were brought here, making it one of the largest Confederate Hospitals, with soldiers occupying the house, barn and considerable space around the farm. When the Confederates retreated from Gettysburg, 446 soldiers were left at the farm. They remained for about 28 days before consolidation at Camp Letterman (Hospital Hill). Forty-seven died and were buried on the farm, but were disinterred and moved to Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond Virginia later. The families lost considerable livestock, crops, furniture, clothing, linens, etc. and were not compensated until the late 1880's. The farm remained in the Monfort family until around 1921. The word "GETTYSBREW" appeared on the front page of the Gettysburg Times early in April of 1995. By late June the idea became resident at the Historic Monfort Farm. It took 2 full years to restore the barn, accomplish zoning miracles, run city water, sewer, and gas plus 3-phase electric. GETTYSBREW opened as the areas largest brewery and was a favorite destination for families, beer-seekers, epicures and others. A bed and breakfast is planned and will be "The Inn at the Historic Monfort Farm."

George W. Vanarsdall Biography
Posted on June 25, 2013

The Revolutionary War marker above is for George W. Vanarsdall's grandfather, Cornelius O. Vanarsdall, who brought his family to Mercer County, Kentucky, after the war. He is buried in the Old Mud Meeting House Cemetery. I think it very interesting he was a spy for his New Jersey regiment. Thankfully he was not caught!

from Mercer County, Kentucky, Biographical Sketches

George W. Vanarsdall was born April 29, 1827. His father, Cornelius B. Vanarsdall, a native of New Jersey, removed in early childhood with his parents to Mercer County, Kentucky, and located on Salt River. He was a farmer, a Methodist, a Union man, and died in 1862, at the age of sixty-six years. He was the son of Cornelius O. Vanarsdall of New Jersey, a farmer, and carpenter, great framer, church and barn builder, Methodist and Democrat, who died about 1839, aged over eighty years. He married Betsey Vanarsdall, and their offspring were John, Cornelius B., Abram, Jacob, Polly (Harris), Jane (Boice), Peter, Alexander, Lucy (Adkins) and Isaac. Cornelius B. married Polly, daughter of Jacob Smock, of Mercer County (died in 1865, aged over sixty years), and from their union sprang Ann (Brown), Elizabeth (McGrath), James M., Harriet (Mitchell), George W., John W., Nannie and Edward M. George W. Vanarsdall married, December 18, 1849, Miss Elizabeth, daughter of John and Elizabeth (Sharp) Adams of Mercer County (born in 1830), and to them have been born Charles, Emma C., William A. T., J. Wesley, U. S. Grant, Mary N. and Benjamin F. In youth Mr. Vanarsdall, a native of Mercer County, learned the carpenter trade, which he followed with fair success for thirty years. Being cast upon his own resources he struggled against adverse circumstances until by industry and frugality his labors have been crowned with an ample competency. He is now engaged in farming and stock raising, having 245 acres of land in a high state of cultivation. He is a member of the Christian Church, and in politics is a Republican.

General Notes:

There appears to be some confusion about the Peter Brinkerhoff. A findagrave record says he was the husband of Sarah Bogart (1780 - 1806) and that he was baptised (and presumably born) in 1798. It also says he died in 1805 and was the son of Abraham D. Brinkerhoff. Something is obviously incorrect here. Other sources say he was a brother of Abraham D. and was born about 1774. This makes more sense. However, the tombstone attributed to him in the Monfort cemetery is obviously wrong. This needs further research.

In the same letter, Ms. Jenkins states that Sarah was "a seamstress at home and then took in college boys as boarders (hence, OH yrs. later) -- she was known as 'Mother Montfort'. She was a strict Presbyterian, and was strict with grand children on Sunday -- walk, read 'Pilgrim's Progress' -- that's it."

African Americans of Gettysburg

Blacks in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
Margaret Palm was a colorful character in Gettysburg's African American community during the mid-nineteenth century. She served as a conductor along the local branch of the Underground Railroad, earning the nickname Maggie Bluecoat for the blue circa-1812 military coat she wore while conducting fugitive slaves north. One evening, she was accosted by two strangers who bound her hands and tried to kidnap her into Maryland and slavery. Her screams attracted help and she escaped her assailants.

Alexander Dobbin, a Presbyterian minister, arrived in the Marsh Creek valley and purchased a two-hundred-acre plot of land in the spring of 1774. Two years later, Dobbin established the beginnings of local black community when he returned with two slaves who built the stone building that would serve as Dobbin's home and school. These slaves were the first known African Americans in Cumberland Township.

The Underground Railroad
One of the main stations of the Underground Railroad in Gettysburg was the Dobbin house, owned by Reverend Alexander Dobbin's son Matthew, who was a captain in the Underground Railroad. African American residents were active in the line that ran through McAllister's Mill on the Baltimore Pike.

Due in part to the efforts of the Underground Railroad, the African American population of Gettysburg grew from 108 in 1820 to 186 in 1860. The fact that thirty-one percent of Gettysburg's African Americans in 1860 were natives of Maryland and Virginia serves as evidence of the impact of the Underground Railroad on the town's population.

In 1780, the state of Pennsylvania had passed a law which gradually abolished slavery. James Gettys incorporated the borough of Gettysburg around 1800, and his slave Sydney O'Brien became the borough's first black resident. Gettys later freed O'Brien and provided her with a house in the southwestern part of town.

Life was hard for Gettysburg's African Americans. They most often worked as day laborers, which required working six days a week, often from sunup to sundown, and involved largely tasks requiring heavy labor. While economic advancement proved to be elusive for most blacks, they were successful in establishing two new churches between 1837 and 1841.

By the 1840s, slavery was almost gone, and most blacks in Gettysburg were free. Some African American residents had escaped from Maryland, a slave state, and many who came to Pennsylvania were looking for economic, educational and social advancement.

While Gettysburg's African American community was born into slavery, those slaves' descendants were instrumental in helping Southern slaves escape to freedom. Membership in any of the area's antislavery organizations was denied to Gettysburg's blacks, for fear that they would draw the attention of the proponents of slavery. Reverend Jonathan Blanchard had been attacked by an anti-abolitionist mob in 1837 for fraternizing with blacks.

The Mason-Dixon Line
By 1860, the African American community was becoming well established. There was some slow improvement in economic conditions; they had established two churches, and their children had the opportunity to receive an education. Yet a dark cloud lingered over the community. Gettysburg's location - seven miles north of the Mason-Dixon line - rendered the community constantly in fear of slave kidnappers.

This boundary, surveyed along the borders of Pennsylvania and Maryland, became a symbol of freedom from oppression for blacks enslaved in the southern states. Underground Railroad agents ushered thousands of fugitive slaves across this line and on to freedom.

Fugitive slaves chose to live only seven miles from the Mason-Dixon line because Gettysburg provided economic opportunities for runaway slaves desperate for work. Fifty of the borough's 186 black residents held jobs in 1860. The types of occupations ran the gamut from clergyman to fortune teller, with domestic servant the most common for women. Seventeen of the 103 black women in the borough held jobs.

Only twenty blacks owned real estate in Gettysburg in 1860. Real estate owners were most often males with a family, although six women, all widows, also owned property. Almost two-thirds of black real estate owners were natives of Maryland and Virginia, perhaps offering a commentary on the economic goals of ex-slaves and free people of color who had lived with slavery.

The Prelude
During the march through Maryland and Pennsylvania, some Confederates seized Blacks whenever possible, and sent them into slavery in the South. They ignored the legal standing of their victims; some Blacks who had never been slaves were captured. Whether or not the Confederate government officially condoned this cruel practice remains unclear.

A Gettysburg resident, Reverend Thomas Creigh, wrote in his diary for June 26, 1863, that the Rebels announced that they intend "to search all houses for contrabands and fire arms and that wherever they found either they will set fire to the house." Another citizen wrote: "They took all [Blacks] they could find, even little children."

Hearing about the danger, most of Gettysburg's Black residents had already fled, fearing that if they were caught by the Confederates, they would be sold into slavery. The sight of the black population fleeing made a lasting impression on the town's residents, many of whom later wrote of their experiences.

Rebecca Johnson's departure left Sarah Montfort without a servant to help with the household chores. Sarah's twelve-year-old daughter, Mary Elizabeth Montfort wrote:
Today we saw Aunt Beckie. She is the colored lady who helps mother with the wash. Jennie and I love Aunt Beckie. She and some other colored people were pulling wagons or pushing wheel barrows and carrying big bundles. "Yo ol' Aunt Beckie is goin' up into de hills [she said]. No rebel is gonna catch me and carry me back to be a slave again."
Among those who had left were free Blacks - Abram Bryan, his wife, and two teen-aged sons. Fannie Buehler wrote that her maid had "left early in June, from fear of being captured." Some of the white townspeople provided hiding places for their unfortunate neighbors, but the Confederates still managed to take a number of captives.

It is uncertain where those African Americans who left Gettysburg during the Confederate invasion fled. It is most likely that many went of Harrisburg or Philadelphia, both cities with large African American populations. The Harrisburg Telegraph reported on June 24, "Contrabands are arriving here constantly, and it really is a distressing sight to see women and children huddled in wagons, bringing all their worldly possessions with them."

The Battle of Gettysburg
Fought over the first three days of July 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg was one of the most critical battles of the Civil War having occurred at a time when the fate of the nation hung in the balance - the summer of 1863. Often referred to as the High Water Mark of the Confederacy, it was the culmination of the second and most ambitious invasion of the North by General Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia.

The Army of the Potomac, the Union army that had long been the nemesis of Lee, met the Confederate invasion at the crossroads town of Gettysburg and though it was under a new commander, General George Gordon Meade, the northerners fought with a desperation born of defending their home territory. The Union victory resulted in Lee's retreat to Virginia and the eventual end to the hopes of the Confederacy for independence.

The Confederate army retreated from Gettysburg in the early morning of July 5, but life did not return to normal for Gettysburg's civilians. Isaac Carter, who had spent the battle hiding in a woodlot for fear of being captured, recounted:
I visited the battlefield three days after the fight, and it made me sick the bodies were so numerous and so swelled up, and some so shot to pieces - a foot here, an arm there, and a head in another place. They lay so thick in the Valley of Death that you couldn't walk on the ground. Their flesh was black as your hat - yes, black as the blackest colored person.
The Aftermath
Gettysburg's African American population did not escape from having the bodies of soldiers killed in the battle buried on their property. James Warfield returned to find fourteen Confederate bodies buried in his garden. Forty-five Confederates were buried around Basil Biggs' property. Two Confederate bodies were buried in the AME Church Cemetery.

Yet the task of exhuming the bodies for burial in the Gettysburg National Cemetery was an economic opportunity for blacks. Basil Biggs removed more than 3000 for reburial. Resident Leander Warren described the scene:
Biggs had the contract to raise the dead and put them into coffins. He had a two-horse team and hauled six at a time. Every particle of the body was gathered up, and the grave neatly closed over and leveled. The bodies were found in various stages of decomposition. They were generally covered up with a small portion of earth dug up from alongside the body.
African Americans who returned to Gettysburg often found their property or belongings damaged, destroyed, or stolen by either of the two armies. Basil Biggs reported damages totaling $1506.60, including forty-five acres of wheat, eight cows, seven cattle, ten hogs, twenty-six yards of carpet, and five dollars worth of jellies. Abraham Brien claimed to have lost $570 worth of property, but was only awarded fifteen dollars from the government because that was the value of the amount of hay that Brien could prove was consumed by Union horses.

Many of the black residents who fled the town never returned. Those who did return generally did so mainly because they owned real estate there. The opportunities for developing a true African American community in Gettysburg, which had been so vibrant before the war, waned as the borough became simply the first town many blacks encountered on their route north after being freed from slavery.

Gettysburg's black community would unravel under the pressures of losing many of its old members, and the apathy of its new members toward community institutions. Consequently, it became a less attractive place for blacks to settle, and the African American community of Gettysburg and Adams County would decrease by forty percent by the turn of the century.

"Aunt Jennie" Montfort was a spinster (my mother's term) who lived in Gettysburg with her mother, Sarah Thompson, and her aunt, Maria Thompson (Aunt Lyde) until their deaths in 1908 and 1910 respectively. Her mother never remarried after the death of Jennie's father and her Aunt Maria also never married. So, it was three "old maids" living together for a great many years. Jennie was active in the effort to maintain and preserve Low Dutch Cemetery in Gettysburg and collected a considerable sum of money for that effort. She may have been involved in preservation efforts for the battlefield at Gettysburg (I may have a copy of a letter she wrote on this subject and will post it (if I can find it)). Jennie was also an amateur artist. I have a charcoal-pastel-pencil drawing of calla lilies in a vase and I remember a similar-medium work of hers portraying a kitten in a boot (Puss-in-Boots) which I believe either my brother, Henry, or my sister, Christianne, possesses at the moment. Jennie was involved in the Women's Christian Temperence Union (W.C.T.U.) and a number of church and civic associations (see below for some newspaper references to her).

The Harvest of Death AMONG THOSE TAKEN MRS. E. J. WOLF AND MRS. NORBECK. Miss Jennie Montfort, to Whom Belongs Credit of Reclaiming Low Dutch Cemetery



Miss Jennie T. Montfort, a resident of Gettysburg for many years, died on last Friday at the home of Rev. and Mrs. O. H. Melchoir at Springtown, Bucks county, aged 64 years. She was born in Straban township and after death of her father the family moved to York street, Gettysburg, where they lived many a years. Miss Jennie was a devout member of the Presbyterian Church and to many good works she devoted her time and care. To her is in large measure due the reclaiming of the Low Dutch Cemetery in Straban township. It had become a wilderness. In the cemetery was buried the grandfather of A. J. Cassatt, president of the Pennsylvania Railroad, and many other persons of this section. Through her persistent efforts several hundred dollars were collected to reclaim the cemetery and rebuild the wall, and $500 was also collected for an endowment and placed with the Citizens' Trust Co. of this place for the care and upkeep of the cemetery. The body was brought to Gettysburg on Monday, Rev. F. E. Taylor conducting services with interment in the Evergreen Cemetery.

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

[Source: Carol Lembke-McKee-Jenkins, letter to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 21 September 2005]

"Jennie -- apparently frail (and photos indicate that) most of life. Quite an artist. Got Low Dutch Cemetary fixed and endowed; devoted aunt to ME's (Mary Elizabeth Montfort) children. Active in civic affairs. The motto on her gravestone says it all: "She has done what she can do'. Great!
So, Maria (Maria Catharine Thompson) and Jennie had time to do civic things in town, while Sarah (Sarah Thompson Montfort, Jennie's mother) kept the house -- they all had their place."

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

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 1 October 2014]

1918 was the year that the Spanish Flu first struck. Apparently, the first signs of the outbreak did not occur until the Fall of 1918 by which time Jennie Montfort was already dead. So, my speculations that she may have died of influenza are probably misplaced.

NOTE (2 October 2014): In a letter dated 17 January 1918, the writer says "we are sorry to hear Jennie is not getting strong as she used to be". From this, we can deduce that she was sick for at least six months before she died 31 May 1918.

NOTE (3 October 2014): Her death certificate indicates she died of 'chronic tuberculosis' with a secondary cause of 'mitral regurgitation'.

[Source: The Gettysburg Times, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 27 December 1928, "Out of the Past: Twenty Years Ago" section]

Cleveland--Montfort.--J. Emory Cleveland, of this place, and Miss Mary Montfort, of this place, were married Thursday evening at 8 o'clock at Springtown, Pa., by the Rev. O. H. Melchoir, a cousin of the bride.
The bride was handsomely gowned in a Copenhagen blue silk. Her traveling dress was brown broadcloth. They will be at home on York street after April 1st.
The bride and groom are both popular young people and have many friends in this vicinity.

NOTE: The O.H. Melchoir reference as a "cousin of the bride" - obviously through his wife, Mary Elizabeth Montfort, further supports my contention that this family is related. Now, if I can just find the connection ...

LIDA COREY MILLER MABEL MINER OLSEN FLORENCE WOOTTON WILLES Sanpete County. When the Utah pioneers had secured homes in Salt Lake Valley and were preparing to convert the desert into fruitful fields, a delegation of Ute Indians, under Chief Walker, appeared in Salt Lake City, June 14, 1849, and requested colonists for Sanpitch Valley, to
teach the natives how to build homes and till the soil. An exploring party, consisting of Joseph Horn, W. W. Phelps, Ira Willes and D. B. Huntington, left in August, and with Walker as a guide, entered the beautiful Sanpitch Valley, crossing the divide from Salt Creek canyon, and reached the present site of Manti, August 20, 1849. They were royally entertained by the savages, and after a few days returned and reported everything favorable for rounding a colony.

Joseph Horne
Up to the spring of 1849, Mr. Horne and his family lived in the Old Fort, and
then moved into the Fourteenth Ward of Salt Lake City. In August, 1850, he was
called by President Brigham Young as one of a committee of four to explore
Sanpete valley, his associates being William W. Phelps, Dimick B. Huntington and
Ira Willis. While on this trip he with Messrs. Phelps and Willis ascended Mount
Nebo, so named by Judge Phelps. They located the site of Manti, and dedicated
the whole valley for settlement by the Latter-day Saints. In November of the
same year Mr. Horne accompanied Parley P. Pratt's exploring expedition to the
Rio Virgen river, returning in February, 1851. In the fall of that year he was
one of a company called to go with George A. Smith to Iron county, where they
founded the settlement of Parowan.

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

The wooden chest owned by John-Pierre Hannam, Sr., was, according to a typed note by Mary Rau, hand made by Reuben Culp's father on York Street, Gettysburg for Mary E. Montfort's "shirt waists". The Culp's lived next door to the Thompsons and Montforts and were good friends. Mary Montfort was Mrs. O.H. Melchior, John-Pierre Hannam's great grandmother. [see the reference below to Reuben Culp]

According to her obituary (source and date unknown), Mary died on "Sunday afternoon at her home from ailments incident to old age. She had been in failing health for some time but bedfast for only two weeks" (really one year). At the time of her death, again according to her obituary, she was survived by three sons (Charles, Montfort, and William T.) and one daughter (Mrs. Floyd Rau), eleven grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Brief services were held at her home at 1:15 on Wednesday afternoon followed by continued services in the Durham Lutheran Church. She was interred in the cemetery adjoining the church. According to a second obituary (source and date unknown), she was "born near Gettysburg, educated in the public schools and at the Millersville Normal School." The obituary said she graduated from this school in 1847! This is impossible since she was not born until 1851. She taught school for several years. She married Oliver H. Melchior on 14 October 1880. This same obituary credits her as "one of the pioneer women who organized the Women's Missionary Society of the East Pennsylvania Synod and of the Easton Conference Woman's Missionary Society. She organized the Missionary Society of the Durham, Springfield, and Springtown Lutheran Churches. They were among the first organized in the Synodical Society, They are still flourishing societies today." A third obituary (source and date unknown) attributed the cause of her death to a stroke. However, someone (presumably my grandmother, Mary Rau) crossed the word "stroke" out with a pen. This obituary says she was born east of Gettysburg and that her family moved to a residence on York Street in Gettysburg a year or two before the Battle of Gettysburg.

Her great grandson, John-Pierre Marcel Hannam, Sr., has an article purportedly written by her entitled "Literary Culture In Our Common Schools."

Margaret Melchior Seylar wrote a book, "Mary Elizabeth and Mr. Lincoln" which related stories Mary Monfort told her as a child about her experiences during the Battle of Gettysburg (John-Pierre Hannam has a piece of door frame from her home with a bullet embedded in it). Also, according to Margaret Seylar, Mary Montfort personally witnessed Abraham Lincoln delivering his Gettysburg Address (also in the book).

NOTE: According to Carol Lembke McKee Jenkins, in a letter to John-Pierre Hannam dated 24 March 1999, "Margaret's story of ME witnessing the G. Address is literary license, and Margaret used to laugh about it -- enhanced the book!"

At the 1880 Census, Reuben Culp was a 24-year old cabinetmaker living with his parents, Jerimiah and Rebecca Culp, and siblings next to Jacob Cassatt Thompson and his sisters, Jane and Maria and two doors down from Sarah E. (Thompson) Montfort and her two daughters, Mary Elizabeth Montfort and Jennie T. Montfort.

NOTE: This is a somewhat fanciful account of the days immediately following the Battle at Gettysburg. Mr. Bennet took artistic license with the "facts" regarding Mary Elizabeth Montfort and her mother, Sarah, and sister, 'Jennie Ann'. Sarah Montfort and her daughters DID help wounded soldiers at Gettysburg. Sarah Montfort ran a boarding house as a way to make money so finding space for the wounded was probably no problem for her. However, Sarah Montfort's husband, David, had died in 1854 (he was never a soldier at Gettysburg) and Jennie Ann was in reality Jennie Thompson Montfort. Nevertheless, it is interesting because of the references to my ancestors. I can neither confirm nor dispute any other portions of Mr. Bennet's article.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 23 February 2003.

Here is the excerpt:

"Out of the shock emerged a new energy and purpose. Many of the women of the town turned to the humanitarian needs of the hour. The arriving wounded were taken into homes and given caring, if not professional, ministration. Neighbors, Mary McAllister and Nancy Weikert, hurried across Chambersburg Street to the Christ Lutheran Church and opened its doors to accommodate the arriving wounded. Both remained and assisted the surgeons until exhaustion and concern for personal safety forced them to return home later in the day. (22)

This was a scene that was repeated all over town as the need for space to treat the wounded opened more churches and public facilities. The miracle in all of this was the ability of these volunteer women to immediately overcome their natural repulsion to the mutilation and suffering of the wounded and perform such gruesome, but life sustaining work.

There was at least one exception that requires no apology. Twelve year old Mary Montfort accompanied her mother, Sarah, to a warehouse near the railroad to help with the wounded. Soon after arriving, Mary came across her own soldier/father lying conscious with a gaping hole in his side made by a shell fragment. He had fallen in battle, practically within sight of his home and family. Mary recorded the scene in her diary: "Father looked at me and said, "Mary Elizabeth," then he closed his eyes ... Mother told me to go home and take care of Grandma and Jennie Ann her little sister)." With nothing more than a final kiss bestowed upon her father's brow, Mary left and made her way home; trying to comprehend the pain and grief this battle had so suddenly bestowed upon her.(23)

Those women not involved directly in caring for the wounded turned to picking lint and preparing bandages. This activity was undertaken in groups gathered in private homes. It proved to be a vital resource for the doctors and served to take the women's minds off their own exposure to danger ... "

This account, like the one above, is somewhat fictionalized. As far as I know, Mary Montfort's father had died long before the Civil War and there is no family tradition of Mary ever meeting Abraham Lincoln. Whether she actually met him or touched his hand, I do not know. No doubt she saw him make his famous address -- who in Gettysburg did not? -- but there are no family stories of which I am aware in which she actually met him. Other parts of the account regarding the Montfort family appear to be based on truth. I cannot comment one way or another about the Ziegler family because I have no knowledge or relationship to them.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr,, 18 August 2012

Two mothers, who had been girls during the Battle of Gettysburg, often shared their experiences with their children and other family members of the younger generation. One of them, Lydia Zeigler Clare, remembered, "My children have long been urging me to give them in a short story my experience in the battle." The other, Mary Elizabeth Monfort Melchoir, affirmed that her children, and nieces and nephews, insisted that she write down such an important chapter of American history. These two Gettysburg girls, at ages 12 and 13 in 1863, have recorded their summer that year – a most unforgettable July if there ever was one.

Mary Elizabeth Montfort, aged 12 in 1863, lived west of town with her mother, her grandmother, and her younger sister, Jennie Ann, who was six years old. Her father was a soldier in the Army of the Potomac. He had been granted a short leave in early June, and had visited his family in Gettysburg. When he left to go back to the fight, Mary Elizabeth was broken hearted. "I miss Father," she wrote in her diary. She didn't know if she would ever see him again.

Lydia Zeigler, aged 13, was the youngest of six children. Her father, Emanuel Zeigler, worked at the Lutheran Seminary. The family lived in the main building, Schmucker Hall, on the first floor.

"I shall never forget the June afternoon when I stood on the Seminary steps with my parents," Lydia recalled, "to see a Confederate host marching in the Chambersburg Pike." The day was June 26, and General Early's Division of troops invaded the town, hoping to find provisions. Lydia thought that the Confederates were the most "ragged and unkempt set of men" she had ever seen. After being satisfied that no Union soldiers were near, Early's men continued on to the north and east, toward York. A few days later, Union soldiers, a detachment of General John Buford's cavalry, arrived. "We were glad," she wrote, "by seeing regiment after regiment of our own men come and encamp around us. We gave them a royal welcome."

The Zeiglers and other local families fed the soldiers some home-cooked meals, which the men greatly appreciated. "How well do I remember the happiness it gave me to hand out the cakes and pies that our kind mother made until late at night for those boys in blue," Lydia remarked.

On the night of June 30th, Lydia climbed into the cupola of the Seminary and noticed a string of campfires in the mountains to the west. She knew that they belonged to the Confederates. "In the near distance we could see a large circle of men engaged in prayer, and as the breezes came our way, we could hear their petitions which ascended to the Father in heaven for His protecting care on the morrow." Others were "singing with hearty good will, oblivious to the dangers threatening them." Many were patriotic songs, such as The Star Spangled Banner, which Lydia confessed she "loved to hear."

The next day, July 1, brought sounds of a different sort, sounds that were not so pleasant. The foreboding unrest gave way to the boom of cannon early in the morning, and filled the townspeople with terror. Eager to see the battle, Lydia crept outside from the safety of the Seminary building to the woods nearby. She was watching "an awe-inspiring scene, when a bullet flew so near my head that I could hear the whizzing sound it made." A signal officer from the cupola called to her to get out of harm's way, and she promptly obeyed, returning to the house.

Elizabeth Montfort and her family remained inside her home north of town while the battle raged around them. During the late afternoon, Confederate soldiers entered houses, looking for Union soldiers. Elizabeth remembered that they stuck their bayonets in woodpiles, in beds, ruining quilts and blankets, and even checking in chimney flues for anyone who might attempt to avoid capture. When the fighting died down, Mary Elizabeth and her mother headed to the train station where they heard that there were wounded soldiers.

At the train station, Mary Elizabeth saw a familiar face. It was her father. She knelt beside him and he opened his eyes. "Father looked at me," she remembered, "and said, 'Mary Elizabeth', and then he closed his eyes. He had been hit by a shell. There was a big hole in his side. Mother told me to go home and take care of Grandma and Jennie Ann." She kissed him and walked toward the door that led to Carlisle Street. It was the last time she would see her father alive. As she prepared to open the door, seeing the chaos outside, a soldier also watching the action in the streets warned her, "Look at that fighting, little girl. You'd better get out of here, fast."

The streets thronged with soldiers in blue and gray, as they hurried from the field of battle. Wounded men, men on horseback, and men on foot crowded the streets as to make them nearly impassable. Shells burst in the air and the crackle of musketry could be heard. Amazingly, Mary Elizabeth made it home to her grandmother and her younger sister. When she reached the house, she saw that their cow, Bessie, was hidden in the parlor to keep her from becoming contraband. The ruse worked, and the cow survived the battle and remained with the Montforts.

Unlike the Montforts, the Zeiglers chose not to stay in Gettysburg. As the Seminary filled with the wounded and the dying, Emanuel took his wife and children and fled to the village of Two Taverns, about five miles south of town. They remained there with friends until the battle ended.

When the Zeiglers returned three days later, they rode in a cart to the Round Tops, then walked the rest of the way home, a journey of three miles. "We decided to walk," Lydia recalled, "for the ground was thickly strewn with unexploded shells, which were likely to burst of struck." The walk took much longer than expected, as they met hundreds of wounded soldiers lying in their path, many of them without any food or water for days. The Zeiglers had been given several loaves of bread, and promptly fed the famished men. "I can picture to my mind even to this day my father and mother as they stood by these wounded men, father with his pocket knife cutting off pieces of the bread which my mother would have to put into the mouths of some who were too weak even to lift the bread to their lips, or take the water which we children carried from the little streams or springs nearby in cups made by fastening leaves together." She plaintively added, "Pen cannot describe the awful sights which met our gaze that day."

For Mary Elizabeth Montfort, the aftermath was equally dreadful. On July 4th she wrote in her diary, "Today is supposed to be a holiday, but it is a sad day for Gettysburg. No matter where you look, there are soldiers hurt and dying. There are [dead] horses everywhere. The terrible smell all through the town is worse than the time we found a dead rat behind the loose boards in the cellar."

Lydia Zeigler described similar horrors. "The dying and dead were all around us," she wrote. "We could count as high as twenty dead horses lying side by side. Imagine, If you can, the stench of one dead animal lying in the hot July sun for days. Here they were by the hundreds." Working all day ministering to the needs of the myriad wounded, it was night before they reached home. "Oh, what a homecoming!" Lydia lamented. "Everything we owned was gone – not a bed to lie on, not a change of clothing. Many things had been destroyed, and the rest had been converted to hospital purposes." Yet, like the Montforts, the Zeiglers' two cows were spared. The soldiers had used them for milk, and so they survived.
In the ensuing days, with over 20,000 wounded left behind in Gettysburg, the 2400 civilians were pressed into service until the train tracks could be repaired and fresh recruits could arrive in town to help with the wounded and the dying. "Many a poor fellow died within the first ten days after the battle for want of care and nourishing food," Lydia recalled.
In the Seminary, both Union and Confederate soldiers received care. Where Mary Elizabeth and her family provided aid, most of the unfortunates were Confederates, about 50 in all. "I met a soldier who was 16 years old," Mary Elizabeth remembered. "He kept asking for [cornmeal] mush and milk. We don't have any cornmeal to make mush. Another soldier kept asking me for pickles. We didn't have any but I knew that Mrs. Wagner had a whole shelf full in her cellar. She gave me some and I gave them to the soldier, who hid one under his pillow so he would have it to eat later on."
"Nights and days were alike spent in trying to alleviate the suffering of the wounded and dying," Lydia recalled. "How often did I receive the dying message of a father or husband to send to his loved ones whom he would never again meet on earth! I shall ever hold in sweet memory the repeatedly uttered, 'God bless you, my girl!' from poor fellows after receiving some little act of kindness had been shown them."

One particular event stood out in Lydia's memory. She saw an elderly couple, sitting, exhausted, outside the Seminary, about a week after the battle. When she asked if she could be of any assistance, the gentleman replied that they were from Chambersburg, looking for their son. He was the youngest of four, and the last one still surviving, as the other three had been killed in the war. When the parents heard that their Charlie had been in the Battle of Gettysburg, they were frantic with worry. They had walked the twenty-one miles from Chambersburg, as no other mode of transportation had been available. Lydia noticed that the mother held a satchel full of food and "dainties" that her Charlie liked.
Lydia took the couple into the Seminary and there they found their son, desperately wounded and "in a dying condition." Lydia's own heart broke as she watched the grief-stricken mother bend over her unconscious son and weep. "For a short time consciousness returned to Charlie, and he knew his parents." The next morning, the young soldier died and his parents returned to Chambersburg with their son's body to bury him at home.

Mary Elizabeth met Abraham Lincoln when he came to Gettysburg to deliver his famous oration. The Montforts, who had lost their father in the Battle of Gettysburg, were close to the dais and listened attentively to the President's words. Mary Elizabeth remembered scant applause after his speech, and the prompt end of the ceremony afterward. As Lincoln stepped down from the platform, Mary Elizabeth stood by the steps and looked into his face. He, too, returned her gaze. "Hello young lady," he said to the girl. "Who are you?" He reached to take her hand and she grasped his hand in her own. "I'm Mary Elizabeth," she said. She later acknowledged that her moment with the President was "the greatest moment in my life."

More great moments of life were in store for Mary Elizabeth and Lydia Zeigler, who lived to adulthood and enjoyed the years of motherhood and grandmotherhood. Both married ministers. Mary Elizabeth wed Pastor Oliver Melchoir from Bucks County, Pennsylvania and made her life in that part of the state. Lydia married Richard Clare on a much happier 4th of July than she had known at Gettysburg in the wake of the battle nine years earlier. The couple had six children, five of them boys; and all the sons became pastors like their father.

Perhaps Gettysburg, Pennsylvania proved to be a great training ground for these two Gettysburg girls, giving them ample experience in selflessness and work to ease the suffering of thousands in the most horrendous of circumstances one summer in 1863.

Today we saw Aunt Beckie. She is the colored lady who helps mother with the wash. Jennie and I love Aunt Beckie. She and some other colored people were pulling wagons or pushing wheel barrows and carrying big bundles 'Yo ol' Aunt Beckie is goin' up into de hills.

Lem Snyder's Cow

"Lem Snyder's Cow"
By Amy lindenberger
Print: 7.25" x 6.25"

A charter member of the Colored Pencil Society of America and most notably known for her portrait work, Amy Lindenberger has produced a beautifully detailed sketch depicting Lem Snyder's Cow.

During the Civil War, when either army would enter an area, local residents knew that any livestock they didn't send away or hide, would be confiscated. This could create quite a hardship for a family, and civilians sometimes found creative solutions for this problem. Twelve-year-old Gettysburg resident Mary Elizabeth Montfort gave the following account in her diary in 1863:

"Lem Snyder brought a pail of fresh milk to the house. Lem explained to Mother when he heard the Rebels coming into town he took Bessie and tied her in the parlor. She's been there ever since".

To some people, the eclipsing of women's work in the public record was appropriate and seemly. To others it was regrettable. Just after the turn of the century, a local historian described the dismissal of women as a "neglect of oblivion that has enshrouded the deeds heroic of hundreds of maids and matrons of Gettysburg and vicinity," and another, a speaker at a Gettysburg Memorial Day address in 1898, called on his audience not to forget "the patriotic women of our land- who had, in the war, encouraged, cheered, nursed, raised money, and been tender in grief. He suggested a monument to women, leaning toward" a monument to fallen sons, "as if to support it." Another woman regretted that there "was never any record made by either State or Federal Government of the services" of women "-unknown and unrecognized."41

Rarely, a battle survivor put herself forward in print, to ask publicly why women like her had been so decidedly bypassed. Mary Montfort Melchior had been a young girl during the battle, and in 1886 she had a question for those who would ignore the work she and others performed. Why was it, she wondered, that people knew Gettysburg only by the names of Wade and Burns? Jennie Wade, she said, "was not the only woman who baked bread for the hospitals during the hours of the battle. But she lost her life in the act, and was immortalized; the others saved their lives for future work for the cause and are nameless." And as for John Burns-why, there were "women as old as John Burns" who went from house to house caring for injured men. Did a citizen have to shoulder a musket in order to be acknowledged? In questioning a society that made soldiers and shooting the highest measure of significance, Melchior stood up for all the forgotten civilians of Gettysburg. But she had especially harsh words for the people who dismissed women. Local women had done everything asked of them, and more. "Did their work," she wondered, "count as nothing?"42

The following is a memoir, written by Annette Melchior Lembke in 1994. that relates some of the experiences of her grandmother and great-grandmother in Gettysburg as told to her by her grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Montfort. Annette's daughter, Carol Lembke-Jenkins, provided a copy of this memoir to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., on 20 September 2014. Mr. Hannam scanned it and converted it to digital format, making a few corrections (spelling and typographical) as provided below.

OUR GETTYSBURG HERITAGE

My grandmother Melchior was a twelve year old girl living in Gettysburg at the time of the battle. We grandchildren loved to listen to her stories of the battle. I shall try to record a few that I remember.

But first - - How did her family happen to be in this small town, of less than three thousand people, at that time? Grandma's maiden name was Mary Elizabeth Montfort. Family records show that the Monforts and Cassatts, French Huguenots, fled to Holland in the late 1500's. They, and the Dutch Brinkerhoffs, came to New Amsterdam between the 1630's and 1660's. Their lives are another fascinating story! Over the years the families intermarried. Before the Revolution their descendents migrated westward in Pennsylvania and settled in and around Gettysburg in Adams County. The Thompsons arrived from Ireland in 1774. These are Grandma's 4 family lines. In 1850 David Monfort married Sarah Thompson. They had two children, my grandmother Mary Elizabeth, and Jennie, a year younger, who never married. David died in 1854, leaving a young widow with two very small daughters. To earn a living Sarah took in boarders. Fortunately, she had her mother and several uncles and aunts to make an extended and helpful family. Now we will skip to early July, 1863.

Grandma never told us of the terrible bloodshed and horrors of the battle. It was mainly what the family did.

When rumors spread that the Confederates were near Gettysburg, the miller who supplied his customers with flour told them that he would give each family a barrel of flour. If they used it, or saved it, they could pay him later. If it was confiscated (by the Rebels) it would be his loss. So, Great-Grandma Monfort received a barrel of flour which was put to good use! Grandma's family lived in a small brick house on York Street which was a main thorofare. There was a "cellar kitchen" with a big fireplace and oven, for summer cooking, as well as a regular kitchen on the first floor, with bedrooms on the second floor.

When they heard the cavalry coming, the girls ran to an upstairs window to watch. Leading the cavalry was a "dashing" (as Grandma always said) Confederate officer. When he saw the girls, he took off his plumed hat and bowed to the little girls!! That was their introduction of what was to come. Later, they wondered if he had survived.
The village of Gettysburg was completely unprepared for the terrible battle which left thousands of wounded and dead. The railroad station, the few schools, and the churches were converted into makeshift hospitals. When they were quickly filled, almost every home took in as many wounded (both Union and Confederate) as they could. The first floor of Great-Grandma's house was converted into a mini-hospital after the battle.
During the battle, several aunts who lived nearby joined Great-Grandma and her little girls in the cellar-kitchen. At night they baked bread in the fireplace oven, which quickly disappeared in the morning! According to Grandma, hungry soldiers, apparently attracted by the delicious smell of baking bread, lined up begging for some.

At one time, during the day, there was an apparent lull in the fighting. Great-Grandma went upstairs to investigate any damage. She had barely passed by the front door, When -- whiz--a shell came thru! Seconds later, and she would have been killed! Needless to say, she made a hasty retreat to the cellar. (My father acquired the piece of the door with the shell hole. Carol now has it.) Again during a lull in the fighting, the chimney was hit. Many years later Grandma learned what happened. She was returning on the train from Springtown and sat next to a man who had been their next door neighbor in Gettysburg. He had been a Union soldier defending his home town. Their houses were very close together with the chimneys almost adjoining. One day, during a lull, he was on a hill from which he could see his home. He told his mates - who did not believe him: "I'll show you" he said as he fired his gun. He was a good shot - but hit the chimney of the Monfort home instead of his own!!!

When the battle was over, and it was safe to go out, Grandma and Aunt Jennie carried food and whatever was needed from home to the nearby Presbyterian Church where they worshipped. They wrote letters (in their childish hand) for the wounded, read the letters that came to the soldiers, and did any little thing they could; often just talking to them. We grandchildren loved Grandma's "Pickle Story", poignant as it was. A very young, desperately wounded soldier asked for a pickle! The doctor, knowing he was dying, agreed. So, Grandma ran home and came back with a big fat pickle. The grateful soldier took a bite. When Grandma returned the next day, the soldier was gone. Under his pillow, half of the pickle was found! He was "saving it", not knowing he would die that night.

Grandma would laugh and cry over that little incident, but it impressed a twelve year old enough to remember it all those years, to tell it to her grandchildren. The girls continued to help, however they could, in caring for the wounded in their home. During the battle and for a long time afterward, they were kept busy - far beyond their years --in alleviating pain and suffering and cheering the patients.

That fall, President Lincoln came to Gettysburg to speak at the dedication of the new military cemetery. It has become one of America's most memorable speeches: The Gettysburg Address (reread it now). The adults in the family went, but the girls were considered too young to go. They were allowed to stand on the steps of the Presbyterian Church, where a few months earlier they had helped the wounded soldiers, to watch Mr. Lincoln pass enroute to the cemetery. The girls always remembered his waving to them as he passed by! Before the battle they were waved to by a Confederate officer. Later, they were waved to by Mr. Lincoln! Mr. Lincoln worshiped in that church, either before or after, the address. The pew he sat in is still preserved even tho' the church has undergone several renovations.

The military cemetery is adjacent to the very old civilian cemetery known as Evergreen Cemetery. They are divided by an old, low stone wall. Great Grandpa Monfort (1854), Great Grandma Monfort (1908), Aunt Jennie, plus other long-gone relatives lie close to that wall, and not far from the scene of the famous address. When you go to Gettysburg look them up!

Soon after the battle, Dorothea Dix came to inspect the medical care given the soldiers. Cousin Margaret had the letter Miss Dix wrote to Great-Grandma, complimenting her on the fine care she gave the soldiers. Among the wounded she had cared for was the son of Harriet Beecher Stowe ("Uncle Tom's Cabin") and a Capt. Monfort from a town in Orange County, N.Y. (New Paltz, I think). They discovered they were second cousins! For years after the war, many soldiers from both sides held reunions in Gettysburg. Thanks to Capt. Monfort, the "Orange Men" made Great-Grandma's home headquarters for them and their families and became friends. They kept in touch with her for a long time. She kept a notebook where, year after year, these men registered for themselves and their families. She often cooked for them and kept a strict accounting.

From 1852 to 1864 she kept a ledger of income and expenses - that I have . She had no training in bookkeeping, so often income and outgo are mixed together, but it is a fascinating record of costs in those days!! She also recorded her boarders (college boys), when they came, how much they paid, what they owed, etc. Among expenses she not only listed food (meat, fruit, and vegetables from local farmers) but cooking utensils and dishes; garden tools; material for clothes and dressmaker costs; shoes; church; etc. One item I found that was dated April 8, 1854 -"Funeral Expenses" $7.35!! That was for her young husband David. Undoubtedly other records followed, for as long as she took in boarders.

For those of you who have read cousin Margaret Seylors' "Mary Elizabeth and Mr. Lincoln", a childs supplementary reading book, know that it is based on Grandma's stories. However, Mary Elizabeth's father did not die in the war - he died in 1854. As Margaret told me, she was writing a children's book, using the basic stories but embellishing them, for her needs. It was not meant to be a "family history".
The house on York Street was in the family nearly 60 years, but when it was sold, none of the family lived in the immediate area, so the property passed from one stranger to another. I had been there and seen it at different times, but when Carol visited in 1981, the house had been razed and the land converted into additional parking for a fire station. Such is Progress!!!

Some of the relatives lived in Hunterstown, near Gettysburg, and are buried in the old Church Graveyard there. There is also the "Old Dutch Graveyard" near Gettysburg where many Brinkerhoffs and quite a few Cassatts are buried: Many graves there have Revolutionary War markers on them. Our early ancestors were real patriots. Several were active in local government of Adams County before the revolution. A few Thompsons are buried in a small family cemetery near Gettysburg which is difficult to find.

Gettysburg is a big part of our family heritage. If you have never been there - do plan to go! In addition to reliving the battle, do visit the graves of our Cassatt, Brinkerhoff, Monfort and Thompson ancestors - going back into the 1700's. Thanks to them, we are here today!!!!

Mrs. Mary Melchoir
Mrs. Mary A. Monfort Melchoir, 80, native of Adams county and a former resident of Gettysburg, died at her home in Springtown, Bucks county, Sunday, from the effects of a stroke. She was a daughter of the late Isaac and Sarah Monfort, and was born east of Gettysburg. The family moved to Gettysburg, occupying the house now occupied by William Adair, York street, a year or two before the battle of Gettysburg. The Rev. Mr. Melchoir was graduated from Gettysburg college and the Lutheran theological seminary here. After graduating from seminary, he went to Springtown, where he preached 45 years. He died several years ago. Mrs. Melchoir is survived by three sons, Monfort Melchoir, William Melchoir and Charles Melchoir and one daughter, Mrs. Mary Rau.
Funeral services Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock from the home with burial at Springtown.

Oliver H. Melchor, clergyman, P. 0. Springtown, was born December 23, 1848, in Bedminster township, but moved to Nockamixon township when but two and a half years old. He is a son of Tobias and Susanna Melchor, natives of Pennsylvania. His early life to the age of eighteen years was spent working on a farm in Bucks county, after which he attended the select school of David W. Hess for one year; this, with a liberal education from our public schools, enabled him at the age of 19 to teach school, which he did in Nockamixon for two years, and for two years longer at Durham. He was the first to organize a Sunday school at Melchor's school-house in Nockamixon which was known as the Melchor Sunday school, and another at the Monroe school-house, which was in Durham township. After this he entered the Doylestown English and Classical seminary, where after four terms he graduated in 1872, and entered the Lafayette college the same year, where he remained two years longer. He entered college at Gettysburg in 1875, and graduated in 1876, subsequently entering the Theological seminary at that place, when he took the full three years' course, and graduated in 1879. He then entered upon his duties as pastor, his charge embracing the Lutheran churches at Durham, Nockamixon, Springfield and Springtown. Mr. Melchor preaches both in English and German. He was married October 14, 1880, to Miss Mary E. Montfort, a native of Adams county, Pa. Their children are: David M., born December 12, 1881; William T., born May 6, 1884; and Charles C., born August 14, 1885. Mrs. Melchor was a graduate of the Millersville Normal school, and was principal at the Female seminary at Gettysburg. She taught school for several years in Adams county, and one year in Bucks county. Mr. Melchor is a strong prohibitionist, and has done much to promote the cause of temperance.

OLIVER HOFFMAN MELCHIOR

According to his obituary, Oliver died at the age of 79 years, 8 months, and 14 days. Although ailing for several weeks, doctors at St. Luke's Hospital could find nothing wrong and attributed his "weakened condition to old age". According to the article, he had officiated at 1739 funerals, 2715 baptisms, and 829 marriages. Born on 23 December 1848 in Bedminster Township, his family moved to Nockamixon Township when he was two. He taught school for two years in Nockamixon Township and two years at Durham. He graduated from Doylestown English and Classical Seminary in 1871. He then attended Lafayette for two years and Gettysburg College for two years. He graduated from Gettysburg Theological Seminary in 1879. According to the obituary (date and source unknown), he passed away at 10:30 on Friday morning in his home. He had begun to "fail during the middle of July". Again according to his obituary, Oliver celebrated the 49th anniversary of his "preaching in the Lutheran congregations at Springtown, Durham, and Springfield..." on July 1st. Had he lived, he and his wife would have celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary on 14 October.

The Rev. 0. H. Melchor
President of the Bucks Co. S.S. Association, 1887-1901.

The Rev. 0. H. Melchor was born in Bedminster township, Bucks county, on December 23, 1848. When he was two years old, the family removed to a farm in Nockamixon township, where his father died in 1883. Young Melchor, therefore, was brought up on a farm, attending school during the winter, first at Nockamixon Church, and later, at a new school-house built on his father's farm, which is still known as "Melchor's school." He was always fond of books and study, but his school privileges were limited to four or five months in a year, and the remainder of the time he worked on the farm. During these years he attended a Sunday-school held in the "Old Starch Factory," in Kintnersville, more than two miles away. One of his teachers at this place was Mr. Michael Yost, now living near Doylestown.
When eighteen years of age he entered a private school taught by David W. Hess, only a short distance from Mr. Melchor's present residence, and six miles from his father's home, which distance he walked every morning and evening. During this year he connected with the Lutheran congregation at Nockamixon, the Rev. W. S Emory, pastor.
He commenced teaching when nineteen, at Melchor's school-house. Here he organized and superintended a Sunday school, which was attended by young and old. The parents even attended Melchor's Sunday-school. After teaching here two terms he was called to the adjoining township of Durham, to the Monroe school, where he taught two terms, at the then high salary of forty dollars a month. At this place he also organized and carried on a Sunday-school which was well attended by young and old.
Having now made and saved some money, he was ready to enter upon a course of preparation for the work for which he longed, and to which he had felt himself called from boyhood. In the spring of 1871 he entered the Doylestown English and Classical Seminary. The Monroe Sunday-school presented him, the Sunday before he left, with fifteen dollars. During this term and the following year he prepared to enter college. During the first term he did some teaching in the Seminary, and the following year was private tutor to Will Mercer, at the Laurence homestead. He has never forgotten the kindness and financial aid received from the Mercer family.
He entered Lafayette College in the fall of '72 and boarded himself the first year, enjoying but one warm meal during the first four weeks, at the house of a friend. At the end of the year he received a prize of twenty-five dollars for proficiency in Greek and Latin. The second year he waited on the table in a boarding-house for his board, and at the end of the year received a second prize of fifty dollars for proficiency in Latin and Greek. While in college here he attended a country Sunday-school "up the Bushkill."
In his Junior year, acting upon the advice of Lutheran ministers, he left Lafayette, and entered his own Church College, Pennsylvania, at Gettysburg, receiving aid from the Church, so that he could give all his time to study and reading, this being the more necessary because of his lack of early opportunities.
He graduated from Pennsylvania College 1876, and from the Theological Seminary at the same place 3 years later. During the last two years that he was in Gettysburg he was Superintendent of the Reformed Sunday-school, from which he received a twenty-dollar gold piece when he left.
In the spring of 1879 the Kintnersville charge, of which he was a member, composed of the Churches of Lower Tinicum, Nockamixon, Durham, Springfield and Springtown, was divided, Lower Tinicum and Nockamixon to compose one charge and the remaining three the other. The latter immediately called Mr. Melchor to be their pastor, which call he accepted, and entered upon his work July 1. 1879, coming back to the Melchor homestead, where he lived with his father until October 14, 1880, when he was married to Mary E. Montfort, of Gettysburg, a graduate of the Millersville Normal School.
After serving his three congregations for half a year, the Nockamixon congregation, of which he had been a member, having voted to also connect with the General Synod, of which general body the other three had already become a part, elected Rev. Melchor as their pastor. He greatly appreciated the honor of the election, and felt glad to serve them, but his field was large, his people were having twice as much preaching as they had before the division, and he feared the work would be too heavy. Laying the matter before the President of Synod, the latter advised him to accept and supply Nockamixon as best he could.
This relation continued for twelve years, when Mr. Melchor broke down physically, and had to lay down his work for 3 months. He resigned the pastorate of Nockamixon, which then united with the Upper Tinicum Church and called the Rev. S. S. Diehl to become their pastor, and continued to serve only his three original churches, which he will have served twenty-four years by July 1 of the present year. During his pastorate eight young men from the charge have entered the ministry. The most pleasant relations have always existed between pastor and people.
The Rev. Mr. Melchor has never had a fixed salary, but has always been liberally supported. The money received from the Church to complete his education, although not a legal debt, he refunded to the Board of Education during the first years of his ministry, thus becoming literally a self-educated man.
At the present time he is president of the Easton Conference of the East Pennsylvania Synod. He is an active member of the Buckwampun Literary Society, and a regular contributor to its annual meetings.

After her husband's death, Sarah Thompson Montfort, took in boarders at her home in Gettysburg to help meet expenses. According to Charles Melchior in an email to John-Pierre M. Hannam (15 June 2000), Oliver Hoffman Melchior was one of those boarders while he was attending seminary. It was here, of course, that he met his future wife, Sarah's daughter, Mary Elizabeth Montfort.

LAFAYETTE COLLEGE

The first step in founding Lafayette College, the elder of the group, was taken the evening of December 27, 1824, at a meeting held in White's tavern, Easton, on the northeast corner of the public square. Jacob Weygandt was the secretary, but we do not know the name of the chairman. A charter was obtained in 1826, and the first meeting held under it May 15th, when an organization was effected and James M. Porter chosen president of the board of trustees. In the near future the Rev. George Junkin, D. D., was elected the first president of the college, and upon him devolved the work of building up the institution. The college began its educational work on the south bank of the Lehigh, May 9, 1832, but a suitable site was afterward selected on the present campus on the north side overlooking Easton; ground was broken June, 1833, and the erection of the first permanent building begun. (9)

(9) The Rev. Robert Cunningham, Scotland, was an early professor at Lafayette. He came to Easton, 1835, and opened the first Normal school in Pennsylvania; was subsequently appointed professor of the ancient languages; but returned home in a few years and established what is the largest boys' Preparatory Institution in the Kingdom, near Edinburgh. In 1899, the Rev. John George Cunningham, D. D., son of Rev. Robert Cunningham, was invited to this county to assist Mr. Moody at the Mission conference at Northfield, and, before his return to Great Britain, visited Lafayette and addressed the undergraduates. The occasion was an interesting one and recalled some pleasant memories.

Years of struggle followed, but courage and persistent work with the help of warm friends triumphed over all obstacles and the institution was placed on solid foundation. During its struggles the college had no warmer friend than James Madison Porter. In 1850 Lafayette was taken under the care of the Presbyterian Synod of Pennsylvania, and the Pardee (10) School of Science added, 1866, two steps that contributed to its strength and usefulness. The building and grounds are valued at $650,000, apparatus and libraries $50,000, and within the campus, are 28 buildings, 13 of them being dwellings for professors. Since the doors of Lafayette were first opened for the reception of students, down to July 1, 1898, 4,279 have been enrolled, of whom 1,715 have been graduated. The present attendance is 325, instructed by a faculty of 28 professors. Lafayette College, being within a few miles of the line of Bucks, our county has sent a number of her sons thither to enjoy its educational facilities, and all who have left its hall have done credit to their alma mater. The figures show our county has furnished the college with 10 trustees, one member of the faculty and 89 alumni, of whom 40 were regular graduates, the remainder made up of students who did not graduate, and a few recorded as "honorary graduates," having received honorary degrees, about 100 in all. Here follow the names and brief sketches of all who have been connected with Lafayette as trustees, professors or students (11) from Bucks county, down to about the close of the last century.

(10) Pardee Hall, one of the handsomest buildings belonging to Lafayette College, has been twice destroyed by fire, in 1879, by accident, and 1898 by the torch of an incendiary, George Herbert Stephens, a professor in the institution, for the purpose of revenge against President Warfield. He was convicted and sentenced to the penitentiary for nine years. The hall was rebuilt, and dedicated in June, 1899.

Rev. Samuel S. Diehl was educated in the public schools and in the West Chester State Normal, which he attended for two terms. Then, after teaching school for some four years, he entered Gettysburg College and was graduated in 1889; three years later he graduated from the Theological Seminary of the same institution. Rev. Mr. Diehl was then called to Kintnersville where he took charge of St. Luke's Lutheran Church, succeeding Rev. O. H. Melchor, and also became pastor of the Upper Tinicum Lutheran Church of Tlnicum township.
Among the early settlers of Nockamixon township were many of German nationality, and with them they brought the religion of their native land. The Lutheran congregation of Kintnersville may properly be called a child of the Springfield congregation. It was organized about the year 1755, and its first house of worship was an humble log building, which was erected on a site near the present Center Hill School House. Who the first pastor was is a question, as the records of the church at the time were not preserved. The first pastor of whom we have any record is J. Michael Enderline, who had charge in 1766, and was succeeded by Jacob T. Miller in 1773. A Mr. Sanna was then pastor for some time, and was followed by Peter Ahl in 1789. The following were his successors: Augustus Herman Schmidt, 1798; Rev. Kramer, 1801; John Nicholas Mensch, 1803; Henry E. Miller, 183; C. F. Welden, 1838; C. P. Miller,1842; W. S. Emery, 1865; 0. H. Melchor, 1880; and S. S. Diehl, 1892. At some time during the Revolutionary War the Reformed congregation erected a church near the site of the present building, and in 1804 the Lutheran congregation began to worship with their Reformed brethren, and the church has been Union. On Easter Monday, April 19, 1813, the corner-stone of a new church was laid, and the church completed in 1814, and was used as a house of worship until 1875, when, a fine new edifice was erected. The corner-stone was laid on July 3, 1875 and church was dedicated on May 20, 1877. It is beautifully furnished, and is one of the finest churches in Bucks County. In 1891 a new pipe organ was purchased at a cost of $2,000, and in 1895 steam heat was also added to its many other conveniences. The church services for many years were exclusively In the German language, but English was gradually introduced until now only on every sixth Sunday are the services partially in German. The congregation is large and influential, and the present membership is over 500. There is connected with the Church a flourishing Sunday School, an active Missionary Society, and regular Thursday Evening Bible Class. The officers of the church at the present time are as follows: Trustees, William H. Nickel and Andrew J. Bean; elders, William E. Litzenberger and Wilson W. Bean; deacons, Peter F. Herstine, Henry L.Fox, George A. Purdy, and H. Clayton Frankenfield. The congregation is united is doing a good work in the cause of our common Master.

Rev. Oliver H. Melchor, of Springtown, who, at the Prohibition county convention recently held in Newtown, was nominated for State Senator, has declined the honor and asks that the name of some other Prohibitionist be substituted for his on the ticket. The Prohibitionists made one other mistake. That was in nominating a candidate for the county surveyor when that office is not to be filled this year, Harry T. Shelley having been elected to the position in 1901 for three years.

Rev. and Mrs. O. H. Melchoir of Springtown, Bucks Co., Pa. and Mrs. W. T. Melchoir are visiting Miss Maria Thompson and Miss Jennie Montfort, of York St. Rev. Melchoir celebrated this month his 30th anniversary as pastor of the Lutheran church at Springtown and two other nearby congregations and the event proved a most interesting and gratifying occasion. Rev. Melchoir was born at Springtown and it has been his cherished home for practically his whole life and during his pastorate his congregation has doubled. When the celebration was over he was given a vacation by his churches and after visiting Richmond, Norfolk and other points in Virginia, came to Gettysburg.

NOTE: To the best of my knowledge, O.H. Melchior was NOT born at Springtown. He was born in Bedminster Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, on 23 December 1848. The article is interesting nonetheless.

FORTY YEARS IN THE MINISTRY

Rev. and Mrs. 0. H. Melchoir Honored by Church People.

An account of the celebration of the fortieth anniversary of his pastorate was extended to Rev. 0. H. Melchoir at Springtown recently. Mr. Melchoir is a graduate of the Lutheran Seminary here and his wife was formerly Miss Mary Montfort, of Gettysburg. The following account of the anniversary appeared in a Doylestown paper:
"Rounding out a forty-year pastorate was the rare privilege enjoyed by the Rev. 0. H. Melchoir recently, when a thousand members and friends of his congregation dropped their everyday business affairs and gathered in Bitt's Grove, Springtown, to help him celebrate the fortieth anniversary of his pastorate of Durham, Springtown and Springfield churches.
"Mr. Melchoir's activities have been greater than those which fall to the lot of even the average country clergyman. He is a fine example of a self-made man. A poor boy, he worked his way through Lafayette College, and then through the Theological Seminary at Gettysburg from which he graduated in 1879. Immediately he assumed charge of the three congregations which still comprise his pastorate.
"Chairman Greiss in an appropriate speech presented to Mr. Melchoir a check for an automobile, the amount of which, however, was not stated, but it was an exceedingly generous one. The gift was from the members of his three congregations.
"The gift was a complete surprise to the pastor, and he was visibly affected as he arose to reply, but he quickly regained his composure and made the best impromptu speech of the day."

Celebrates 42nd Pastorate.

On the first Sunday in July, 1879, forty-two years ago, the Rev. O.H. Melchor assumed charge at two little churches and Sunday Schools in Bucks County, Pa., the Springfield Church and Sunday School and the Springtown Church and Sunday School. He preached at Springfield in the morning and at Springtown in the afternoon.
At Mr. Melchor's anniversary service last Sunday twenty-eight members at Springfield and four at Springtown who were members forty-two years ago, participated. The minister preached from the same text that he used in 1879. And he preached in the German language just as he did forty-two years ago, giving substantially the same sermon.
It must be noted that in 1879 Mr. Melchor made the trip to Springfield and Springtown by horse and buggy. On Sunday he did the same. He declined offers of an automobile in order to add color to the event by again driving over the route with a horse and buggy.
Several hundred church members, other than his original members, attended the special anniversary services.
Rev. and Mrs. Melchor are well known here. Mrs. Melchor was before her marriage Miss Mary Montfort of this place.

Oliver Melchoir, of Springtown, this state, is the third surviving member of the group of six which organized the local chapter.
The festivities began Thursday evening with an informal initiation attended by active chapter men and alumni.

Melchior, pastor of the Springfield Lutheran charge comprising three churches, died at his home yesterday after an illness lasting several weeks just a few months short of celebrating his golden anniversary as pastor of this charge. Mr. Melchior, who was in his eightieth year, was one of the most widely known and most respected clergymen of the county. His illness, a stroke of paralysis, came just a short time before the celebration of the fiftieth harvest home service of his pastorate. He was born in Bedminster township, December 23, 1848, and was a son of Tobias and Susanna Melchior. When he was two years of age, the family removed to Nockamixon township, As a young man he taught school for two years in Nockamixon township and two years at Durham.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES - SPRINGFIELD.

OLIVER H. MELCHOR, clergyman, P.O. Springtown, was born December 23, 1848, in Bedminster township, but moved to Nockamixon township when but two and a half years old. He is a son of Tobias and Susanna Melchor, natives of Pennsylvania. His early life to the age of eighteen years was spent working on a farm in Bucks county, after which he attended the select school of David W. Hess for one year; this, with a liberal education from our public schools, enabled him at the age of 19 to teach school, which he did in Nockamixon for two years, and for two years longer at Durham. He was the first to organize a Sunday school at Melchor's school-house in Nockamixon which was known as the Melchor Sunday school, and another at the Monroe school-house, which was in Durham township. After this he entered the Doylestown English and Classical seminary, where after four terms he graduated in 1872, and entered the Lafayette college the same year, where he remained two years longer. He entered college at Gettysburg in 1875, and graduated in 1876, subsequently entering the Theological seminary at that place, where he took the full three years' course, and graduated in 1879. He then entered upon his duties as pastor, his charge embracing the Lutheran churches at Durham, Nockamixon, Springfield and Springtown. Mr. Melchor preaches both in English and German. He was married October 14, 1880, to Miss Mary E. Montfort, a native of Adams county, Pa. Their children are: David M., born December 12, 1881; William T., born May 6, 1884; and Charles C., born August 14, 1885. Mrs. Melchor was a graduate of the Millersville Normal school, and was principal at the Female seminary at Gettysburg. She taught school for several years in Adams county, and one year in Bucks county. Mr. Melchor is a strong prohibitionist, and has done much to promote the cause of temperance.

Church Served Various Groups
August 12, 1999|by KAREN BEYER, The Morning Call
In the hamlet of Springtown, in the rolling hills of Springfield Township, Bucks County, Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church is celebrating its 125th anniversary.
The 265-member congregation has had celebratory brunches and dinners and a church picnic Aug. 1, but members also remain busy by helping those outside of their community.
It's a philosophy that keeps this little church humming with activity.
"A church is a living, breathing part of Jesus Christ. That needs to be reflected in the community." said the Rev. Phyllis Pelletier, church pastor.
In the past year, fund-raisers were held for flood and tornado victims and for the refugees in Kosovo.
Can collections are also under way to help a Hispanic church, "Iglesia Luterana Esperanza" in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia, so it can open this year.
"Our church has always been wonderful at taking care of those less fortunate," Pelletier said.
To keep funds flowing, a core group of church volunteers known as "The Bakers" meet the second Tuesday of every month to fill orders for their popular shoofly pies, Pelletier said.
"They've been baking for a long time," she said. "I don't even know when they started."

Although Springtown had no organized Lutheran congregation or church building, by 1860 it had become a point of occasional preaching.
In 1871, Springtown had become a regular Lutheran preaching station.
That year, a group of people joined to form a church. They belonged to German Reformed, Evangelical, Lutheran, Mennonite and Presbyterian denominations.
They agreed to buy a lot owned by Addison J. Hess for $350 and raise funds to build Christ Church of Springtown.
According to a church history prepared by members, on a cloudy day in 1872, the cornerstone was laid. The stone contained a tin box containing a Bible, a copy of the charter, newspaper, money and a list of individuals who had paid 10 cents each toward the church's construction.
One year later, the church was dedicated and worship began.
In 1874 the Lutheran congregation was officially organized and joined the other churches in the Rev. William S. Emory's parish covering Nockamixon, Tinicum, Springfield and Durham.
Emery served the parish until 1879, when Springfield, Springtown and Durham withdrew from the five-church parish. The Rev. Oliver H. Melchor took over the duties of the newly formed church and continued to served until his death in 1928. He was the Springtown church's longest serving pastor.
In 1924, the Presbyterians and Mennonites discontinued services; when the Reformed congregation ended worship there, the Lutherans had sole use of the building.
The church continued to grow and modifications were made to the church's interior and exterior, most notably in 1944 when former Kutztown University professor and artist Henry W. Sharadin's interpretation in oil of Hoffman's "Christ in Gethsemane" was placed above the altar.
In 1963, under the leadership of the Rev. Edmund Bieber, the Springtown and Durham parish split with Springfield. In 1969, Springtown and Durham each voted to become separate, and in 1971, Christ Lutheran became sole owners of the church.
Pelletier came to Springtown in 1996.

General Notes:

This is probably the man known as Harry S. Montfort of Rt. 7, Gettysburg, who lost a watch fob in 1914 as listed in the 19 March 1914 edition of the Gettysburg Times.
-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 21 July 2007

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

This is probably the same man as Henry Montfort and Harry S. Montfort and brother of Annie Montfort. The item below supports my belief in a relationship of some type between Harry and Annie. They are probably children of John Montfort and Sarah Schriver. Also, my great-grandmother, Mrs. O. H. Melchoir, visited them on several occasions so I suspect they were all related.

There was also a Harry Montfort who had a farm in Straban township in the early 1900s. Don't know if this was the same man or not but it would be strange to have a house on East Middle street in Gettysburg and a farm outside of town?
