History of the children of Casper and Barbara Neun/Nine

1 Sylvester (Vesper) Nine’s death was recorded in the pastoral acts of Christ Lutheran Church, Stouchsburg, Berks County, PA, Part II. This record is part of the source and documents of the Pa. Germans: XIII, translat­ed and edited by Frederick S. Weiser, 1990. The lists are called Deaths, Page 452 of the old record and Page 108 in the translation. Sylvester Neun died October 24, 1820, 81 years less 24 days, which would make his birth about December 27, 1739. Early Berks County tax records mention Vesper as follows: Oley Township:

1767 - singleman 15 shillings, proprietary tax (Page 39); 1768 - 100 acres proprietary tax 5, 2 horses, 2 cows (Page 172); 1779 - (Casper includes his son in the accounting); 1785 - tax only (Page 773) Tulpehocken Township; 1779 to 1785 - listed as living in Tulpehocken Township; 1786 - 276 acres, 4 horses, 5 cattle; 1790 - 4 males and 4 females over 16 including wife, 1 male and no female under 16; 1800 - 2 males under 26, 1 male over 45, 1 female under 10, 2 females under 26 and 1 female over 45 Sylvester’s wife was named Elizabeth.

Schwarzwald Church records include Sylvester and Elizabeth Krissmer sponsoring at a baptism. (An alternate spelling for Krissmer is Griesemer. It is possible that this is the maiden name of Sylvester’s wife. The Griesemers owned land east of Casper’s and perhaps Sylvester acquired the land he later sold to his father through the marriage to Elizabeth.)
