[NI020229] Jacob HOCHSTETLER Birth: 1704, Switzerland Death: Feb 1776, Somerset Co., PA Occ: Farmer Reli: Amish Father: Jacob HOCHSTETLER (1675-) Jacob Hochstetler b. in Switzerland in 1704. The s/o Jacob Hochstetler (Sr.) who was a leader in the Amish Mennonite Ch. From the yr 1728 for abt 9 yrs was a period of very active persecution of the Amish & Mennonites both in Switzerland & the Palatinate, & it is believed that for this reason Jacob Hochstetler & his family came to Amer. They arrived on the ship, Charming Nancy, in Philadelphia Nov 9 1738 & was on the passenger list as being 26 yrs old. Jacob arrived with his wife, Anna Lorentz Hochstetler. His oldest son, John, was then 3 yrs old, & there was probably another child. Having left his native country, Switzerland, with its beautiful lakes, mountains & valleys, he looked around for a location which would look like home. The choicest land within 50 or 60 mi.s of Philadelphia was already occupied, so he received a warrant for 200 ac.s in the twp of Brecknock, Lancaster Co., PA. On Feb 27 1739, a warrant was granted to Valentine Neu & Jacob Hochstetler for 100 ac.s in Bern Twp, Lancaster Co. The next warrant was obtained by Jacob alone. This tract was named Ipswich & was situated on the Northkill in Tulpehocken Twp. This was a good selection of land, being located on the Northkill Creek. In time the heavy timber was removed, the land cleared, substantial buildings erected, all with great perseverance. Several ac.s of fruit trees were planted & the usual hardships of frontier life gone through, but they enjoyed liberty to worship God as their conscience dictated. The family library consisted of the Psalms printed in a small volume, the New Testament, the Bible, & the German Hymn Book called Ausbund. There were no public schools, & parents either taught their chldn at home or had them taught in subscription schools. The education of the chldn was not neglected, for we know that John wrote well. The settlement in the Northkill became the home of the 1st Amish Ch. in Amer. The old home was frequently visited by Indians who gradually withdrew as the white man advanced. The Indians were dealt with fairly in PA, & good feelings seemed to prevail until the French & Indian War. During this period of unrest, the Hochstetler family home was the scene of the last Indian massacre in this part of PA. Jacob's wife, Anna, his young dau., & his son, Jacob, were all killed in this attack, & Jacob & his sons, Joseph & Christian, were taken captive. The Indians burned the barn & all out-buildings before they left. The father & sons were separated, & during their captivity they were made to conform to Indian customs & to dress in Indian style. Since Indians are beardless, they pulled out Jacob Hochstetler's beard & also a part of the hair on his head, leaving only a tuft which was braided. Christian was adopted by an aged Indian who treated him as a son, & Joseph was adopted into another family in full fellowship. Jacob always longed for his home, & finally during a time when all the warriors had gone on a raid to the settlements he decided that the time had come for him to escape or to die trying. He went by raft down a river, although he had no real idea of where he was being held captive. He traveled for several days & was exhausted & hungry. As he was floating past Fort Harris, he was too weak to get to shore or to shout for assistance. A man watering his horse observed him, & Jacob was soon rescued. Jacob later petitioned the governor for assistance in securing release of his 2 sons. They had been held captive over 5 years, & were finally released. It was difficult for both of them to adapt back to their old lifestyles. Christian became converted to the Dunkard religion & thus decided to remain in the white community. He always took trips off into the woods by himself after his release to commune with nature & found life in the white community confining at times. Jacob bore no resentment against his Indian captors & was glad that he & his sons could be reunited. Jacob Hochstetler escaped from Indian captivity about 1760 & returned to his home area in Berks Co., PA. In 1757 he had experienced the trauma of seeing his wife & 2 chldn killed by Indians his house burned, there was little to attract him back to his former homesite. We do not know where he lived the next few yrs. Perhaps he stayed with his son John his family on the nearby farm or with his dau. Barbara Sutzman & family. In 1760 he would have been 48 yrs old. Jacob purchased a 43-ac. farm about 10 mi.s south of the massacre site in what is now North Heidelberg Twp. on 28 Jun 1765. He bought it from David & Sarah Brecht who had apparently acquired it just a short time before & then almost immediately sold it to Jacob. The farm was located in a wooded area some distance from the main Northkill Amish Mennonite settlement. Perhaps he felt more secure here in isolation. The large house on this small farm had 2 parts. The larger section was constructed of stone around 1800. It is attached to an older smaller part which was of log construction that was later covered with clapboards. An 18th century door was in the basement where the 2 bldgs were joined. The older part of the house was probably built by Jacob with help from his sons, Joseph & Christian. Paul V. Hostetler visited this large house several times in the 1970's & noted that the timbers in the attic were smoke-stained, & there was a strong odor of smoked meat such as one finds in a smokehouse. Many early settlers smoked their meats in the attic by removing a stone or brick from the chimney. Jacob bought this farm in North Heidelberg Twp just a yr or so after his sons, Joseph & Christian, had returned from the captivity. They were single & in their 20's at that time & no doubt they lived with their father at 1st. Jacob Hochstetler d. Feb 1776. Spouse: Anna LORENTZ Killed in Indian massacre Hochstetler massacre of 1757,taken captive by indians for 7 yrs, escaped. Dau. Barbara was m. & lived down the rd at the time. This was a very famous event in Amish history. Wife was scalped by indians & Jacob & sons taken captive.

[NI020757] John Metzger was born Johannes Valentine Metzger and came to America in 1758 landing in Philadelphia. Other research indicates that John was born in the Wurttemberg District in 1741.
[NI020772] He & his family were mem.s of The COB (Tunkers). Came to Amer with parents, on Ship Adventurer, arriving in Philadelphia, PA Colony, 2 Oct 1727. They were farmers & land owners 1745 to 1796, in Hagerstown, Frederick Co., MD, later to become Washington Co., MD, in 1776, but all of their chldn were b while it was Frederick Co., MD. In 1796 Philip Jacob Miller purchased land in Campbell Co., KY, & moved there with several of his m chldn. He also bought 2000 acs of land that lay along O'Bannon Creek in Warren Co., OH for $1.10 per ac. After his death, his chldn made an agreement among themselves to divide this land into ten 200 ac parcels. Magdalena, decided to take her share in cash. The other chldn drew lots for this 200 ac parcel, but only a few of them ever lived on their land in Warren Co., OH.
[NI020773] Died 1771 or 1783 in MD. Michael Miller & his wife Suzanna Agnes Berchtol, came to Philadelphia, PA Colony, 2 Oct 1727, Ship Adventurer, with several chldn & accompanied by Jacob Berchtol, her bro. & Jacob Stutzman, Jr., his step bro. They left Germany because of their opposition to military conscription's of the times. There is also another date of arrival which has been found. The 2nd date is 23 Sep 1732, on the "Adventurer". It is thought that perhaps he returned to his mother country to get settlement of his father's estate & returned in 1732. No record can be found of the settlement of the estate, but soon after the date of 1732, Michael & Susanna began to look for land. He is recorded as paying tax for land in Chester Co., Coventry Twp, PA, for yrs 1732-1740. He took out a warrant for 200 acres of land in 1737 but never obtained a patent for the property. On 7 Feb 1744, Michael Miller, Nicholas Garber, Samuel Bechtol, Hans Jacob & Elizabeth Bechtol, (who also lived in Chester Co., PA), purchased a tract of land consisting of 400 acres, northeast of Hanover, PA, in York Co. This was before the Mason Dixon line had been established & boundaries were different from what we know them today. They settled in Rapho Twp, Lancaster Co., PA Colony. Later they moved to Hanover, York Co., PA Colony & in 1744, to the Little Conewago Congregation Ch. They were early settlers of Frederick Co., (later to become Washington Co.) MD. In 1745 he purchased from John George Arnold, 150 acres of land, NW of what is now Hagerstown, MD. The property was then called "Ash Swamp". This land holding was later expanded to 290 acres. In 1749 Michael Miller, yeoman, of Frederick Co., purchased "Skipton-on-Craven" from Colonel Thomas Cresap. Michael Miller, m (2nd wife) Elizabeth Garber, widow of Nicholas Garber. She had 4 chldn from her former m: Samuel Garber (a non-associator in the Rev. War; he was 1 of several Miller family members who chose not to pay the War Taxes or participate in the War Activities, due to the non-violent principals of the Brethren Ch.), Elizabeth Garber, Ann Garber, Martin Garber (also a non-associator). He & Elizabeth, had a grant of land surveyed for him in 1749. It was granted to him in 1754 & it was located between "Skipton-on-Craven" & "Resurvey of Well Taught" & contained 36 acres that he called "Miller's Fancy". Land records help us understand the mind & spirit of this wealthy land owner & great family man. He resided for many yrs in the vicinity of Leitersburg near the mouth of Little Antietam. Here he owned at 1 time 700 acres of land, now embraced in the Ziegler, Hartle & Stockslager farms. In 1755 Michael Miller bought 409 acres of land from George Poe. This was a portion of land known by the name of "Resurvey on Well Taught". In 1760 he was Constable of Upper Antietam Hundred. In 1765 John Reiff (another non-associator) purchased from Michael Miller 117 acres of land, part of "Skipton-on-Craven", where on John Reiff then lived. Michael, was a res. of the district & a neighbor to Jacob Leiter. By successive purchases he eventually acquired more than 400 acres of land, southwest of Leitersburg & on both sides of the Antietam & the turnpike, much of which was doubtless reduced to cultivation & improved by him. In 1765, Jacob Good (another non-associator), purchased from Michael Miller, 163 acres part of "Skipton-on-Craven". There is a rather strong possibility that most of the Brethren bearing the name Miller, sprung from this Michael Miller line. There have been many Ministers & Elders in these families & almost all were devout Ch. mem.s & they always took their Ch. with them when they moved into a new territory. There are more Brethren Ch. mem.s with the name Miller, than any other name. // Michael Miller (as he will now be called) & his wife Suzanna Agnes Berchtol came to Philadelphia, PA Colony, 2 Oct 1727, on the ship Adventurer, with several chldn & accompanied by Jacob Berchtol, her bro & Jacob Stutzman Jr., his step bro. They left Germany because of their opposition to military conscriptions of the times. There is also another date of arrival which has been found. The 2nd date is 23 Sep 1732, on the "Adventurer."

On 7 Feb 1744, Michael Miller, Nicholas Garner, Samuel Bechtol, Hans Jacob & Elizabeth Bechtol, (who also lived in Chester Co, Pa) purchased a tract of land consisting of 400 acs, northeast of Hanover, Pa., in York Co.

In 1749, Michael Miller, yeoman, of Frederick Co, purchased "Skipton-on-Craven" from Colonel Thomas Cresap. Michael Miller m (2nd wife) Elizabeth Garber, widow of Nicholas Garber. She had 4 chldn from her former marriage: Samuel Garber (a non-associator in the Rev War), Elizabeth Garber, Ann Garber & Martin Garber (also a non-associator). He had Elizabeth had a grant of land surveyed for him in 1749.

[NI020775] This Johann Michael Miller was twice m., 1st to Irene Charitas & 2nd to Anna Loyse Regina. The date of Irene's death is not in this record, nor is the date of either of the marriages. By his 2 wifes he had a total of 6 chldn, only 1 of which grew to be an adult. The order of birth of the chldn is not known, therefor the mother of the surviving chld (also named Johann Michael Miller) is not for certain. The Town of Zollikofen in the Canton of Bern where Johann Michael Mueller was b. in 1655 is about 10 miles north of the City Of Bern Switzerland.. The surname of this family is spelled Mueller on German Ch. records. It is spelled Muller on ship record & the spelling used by Michael Muller, Jr., to sign his name, 2 Oct 1727. It was recorded as Miller, on land deeds, wills & tax records after arrival in the PA Colony & has remained the same to the present day. During the 1st half of the 17th century, Switzerland was untouched by the horrors of the 30 Yrs' War, (1618-1648, a Catholic-Protestant conflict, fought principally on German soil) & enjoyed peace & prosperity. It had a good market for its excess products. During the 2nd half of the same century a social reaction set in, which was made acute by political & religious confusion. In 1653, the peasants of the Cantons of Bern, Lucerne, Solothurn & Basel, revolted against the authorities, chiefly for social reasons. Since there were good opportunities for new settlers in depopulated Germany, many people left the Canton of Bern during this period & journeyed northward into foreign parts. This emigration into the "lowland" (Netherlands) as the destination of the emigrants used to be called, lasted into the 18th century & was much more numerous than the emigration to Amer. that ran parallel to it. It is believed that the Millers, (then spelled Mueller), came from a village about 10 miles north of Bern Switzerland, called Zollikofen. It is believed that they became a part of the Reform Ch. The earliest ancestor that has been documented, is a Johann Michael Mueller, who is believed to have been b. 1655, in the City of Zollikofen, Canton of Bern, Switzerland. He d. 31 Jan 1695, at age 40 yrs, in Steinwenden, Germany. It is likely that in the late 1680's the Miller family along with perhaps other friends & relatives moved north along the Rhine River & settled in the Rhineland-Pfaltz area of southern Germany. They became part of the Steinwenden & Konken Germany Reformed parish Ch.s & records of their respective families are recorded in the Ch. records. The Steinwenden records began in 1684.
[NI020778] Hans Michael Muller/Miller came to Amer on the Snow Enterprize, in port at Philladelphia PA on 6 Dec 1738. He wrote & signed his will on 28 Sep 1784. His was the 1st will recorded in Deed Bk D 596, Franklin Co., PA, Will Bk A pg 1, which indicates that he was a farmer & names his wife & chldn. He was a wealthy landowner who had land in Franklin Co., PA, Frederick Co., MD & Hampshire Co., VA, near New Creek now WV. Sometime after his death, Elizabeth moved to a farm on the Conococheagh, near Williamsport, MD, with her son John. She left a Will giving some of her estate to the minister at the Beaver Creek COB, for the poor. She states that this was her Society (church). He was given 50 acs of land called "Blindman's Choice" by his father, located northeast of Taneytown (Carroll Co., MD; then in Frederick Co.), 1 Oct 1760, possibly shortly after his marriage, when he may have been striking out on his own. He acquired further parcels in the same area from Samuel Owings, Jr., including tracts called "Miller's Chance" (13 Jun 1760), "Owings Choice," & "Resurvey on Owings Chance" (Tracy Papers, Carroll Co. Historical Society.) There also are land transactions recorded between Michael Miller (probably this 1, & not his son Michael) & Peter Braver (6 Sep 1783, Fred. Co. Deeds Bk 5, p. 399); Jacob Lorentz (1 Apr 1785, Fred. Co. Deeds Bk 7, p. 221); Samuel Owing (22 Dec 1787, Fred. Co. Deeds Bk 7, P. 143); & "Exchange" from Conrad Mower 11 Apr 1787 (Fred. Co. Deeds Bk 7. p. 221). In his lifetime, Michael sold to his son Adam Miller 3 parcels of land, consisting of "Blindman's Choice," part of "Owings Choice," & "Owings Corner," total of 90.5 acs, but Adam had not pd the 200 pounds before his father's death. From the deed, dated 1 Mar 1793, we get the names of Michael Miller's surviving chldn & the husbs of the 2 dau. (Fred. Co. Deeds Bk 15, p. 722). Michael Miller sold or gave to his son, Michael the tract known as "Exchange." Michael Jr., sold this tract to his bro-in-law, Andrew Bushman, in a deed dated 20 Apr 1795. This was abt the time that Michael, Jr., moved to what is now Adams Co., PA. (Fred. Co. Deeds Bk 13, p. 221). Michael was given 50 acs of land on the MD-PA state line by his father. It was called Blindman's Choice. Today this land is in Carrroll Co. MD & Adams Co., PA. He lived there & left a Will giving the land to his chldn. He was memb of Luth. Ch.
[NI020779] It is recorded that he remained in Chester Co., PA & became minister of the COB. When families moved west to area of Elizabethtown, PA, they prevailed on George Miller, to move with them & be their minister. He was a farmer & weaver & became the 1st preacher at the Big Swatara COB, in PA
[NI020780] John Peter Miller, b 19 Jan 1715, Germany, d 1794, Washington Co, MD. In 1745, he bought a parcel of land called "Ash Swamp", located in Prince George's Co, MD, from John George Arnold. In 1752 this land, (became Frederick Co), was added to & resurveyed by Philip Jacob Miller, (his bro), on the authority of Lodowich Miller, (their bro). On 9 Dec 1783, Lodowich Miller, conveyed this land, 220 acs, now Washington Co, to Philip Jacob Miller, for 5 shillings. All this info found in Washington Co, MD land records, bk C, pgs 563-47. On 26 Dec 1783, Philip Jacob Miller, conveyed 144 acs of "Ash Swamp" to his bro, John Miller, for 5 shillings & brotherly affection. Bk C, pgs 260-2. This deed was recorded before the former deed. Interestingly, this land had on it a small cem which is no longer in existence. On 13 Dec 1794, John Miller, made his last will. It was probated on 26 Dec 1794. The executors, were Daniel Miller & John Fisher, son-in-law. Washington Co Will Records, bk A, pgs 318-319. No wife was named so we presume she was dead. There may have been 2 wives since there seems to be a wide age-spread of the chldn. There is no record that reveals the name of his wife or wives. On 26 Apr 1795, the Ash Swamp land, 143 1/2 acs, was sold by the estate to John Schnebly, deed bk I, pg 584. 25 Sep 1795, John Schnebly, also bought adjoining "Ash Swamp" land from Philip Jacob Miller, deed bk I, pg 360. John names 11 chldn in his will. The last 3 sons, Ludwick, David & Michael, being under the age of 21. On 6 Apr 1795, the "Ash Swamp" land, 143 1/2 acs, was sold by the executors of the estate to John Schnebly. Deed bk I, pg 584. On 25 Sep 1795, John Schnebly, also bought the adjoining "Ash Swamp" land from Philip Jacob Miller. Deed bk I, pg 360. Philip Jacob Miller, then moved to KY. On 9 Apr 1799, the executors of John Miller's estate made distribution of 2,070 pounds in equal parts, to his 10 remaining chldn. Bk I, pg 80. all apparently now 21. The order of the named heirs is basically the same as in the will. Michael, the last named in the will, is missing in the distribution list.
[NI020781] reported to have owned land in Rapho Twp, Lancaster Co., PA
[NI020782] He was 1 of 3 bro. who owned the land resurveyed to them by their father in 1752, called Ash Swamp. We assume that the 3 bro. lived on the land owned by their father until 1752 when he had it resurveyed for them. In 1751 he bought 150 acres of land to the south called "Tom's Chance". This land is adjacent to "Ash Swamp" and lies just east of the Salem reformed Ch.. He may have lived there until 1755 when he sold this land to Peter Tysher. We believe he moved his family to Beaver Creek, to the land that he bought in 1754 from Walter Funderburg. There is some evidence that he moved his family from place to place during the perilous days of the French and Indian War. Land records state that in 1763 & 1767 he was living in York Co., PA, & it is recorded that at the time of the birth of Daniel, he was living in Dauphin Co., PA. Most of the other deeds state that he was living in Meadow Branch of Pipe Creek, Westminister Frederick Co., MD. Perhaps "Chestnut Level", located near Woodsboro and his farm at Beaver Creek in what is today Washington Co., MD. He may have moved to Taneytown in his later yrs as it is recorded that he d Taneytown, MD. One land records states that he was a weaver. 11 chldn - Most moved to VA in 1783 & are the ancestors of Brethren Millers in that State
[NI020785] Susan was the only child by Samuels' first wife Susan Miller. Samuel Ullery and his wife Mary had fourteen children and lived in Montgomery County Ohio. After Mary's death Samuel married Susannah Whitehead and had ten more children
[NI020788] Many researchers working on this Jacob's family line agree that Jacob's father as showen here has not been proven. Placeing him as a chld of Johann Michael Miller & Susanna Agnes Berchtol is based on the book "Michael Miller Family Record" 1993 by F. Mason. Jacob was an early preacher (Ch. Of The Brethren) in VA & OH. A large percentage of the Brethren Miller Families living in OH's Miami Valley are desc.s of this man. He was ordained by William Stover, in the Anteitam congregation in 1762. About 1765 he moved his family to Bedford Co., VA. In 1800 he moved his family to the Miami Valley, OH. Migrated 1st to VA, then to OH. He became an Elder. All his chldn were of the Brethren Chh. His 5 sons were ministers. The desc. of Elder Jacob Miller, # in the thousands.

In 1638/9 Nathaniel was an original grantee of the Sudbury Plantation in Sudbury, MA. He owned a house & lot on East St. between John KNIGHT & John STONE, who was also m. to a daughter of Elder HOWE. He 1st drew 5 acres, 2nd he drew 10 acres & 3rd he drew 7 acres. In 1640 he drew 16 1/2 acres.
Elder HOWE died in 1644, and Nathaniel returned to Watertown where he inherited most of Edward HOWE'S property. He also inherited property from Deacon STONE'S estate. He was appointed selectman at Watertown in 1653,55,64,66,69,70 and 72. Nathaniel was also town officer at Watertown. His will dated 25 Jun 1687 mentions sons, Jonathan, James & Josiah; Mary HAWKINS' children, Jonathan FISHER & Mary H; Children of dau.

As translated from a German family Bible & recorded by David Beeghley" From "Descendants of Michael Beeghly & Barro Inken book III Joseph Beeghly & Mary Keagy" by W. G. Beeghly, 1978, p. XVIII: "There is some controversy over the 2 marriages of Michael Beeghly, Some want to contend that he was only m. to Barbara Zug, & that she was the mother of all his chldn. There was in possession of David Beeghly, s/o Michael Beeghly Jr. who Michael states in his will should have the family Bible. the old Beeghly Bible, from which some of the early descendants have copied out of. All they copied was birth dates & not death dates if they were there. Some have said the Bible gives his wife's name as Barro Inken, some Luken, & one who copied from the Bible, says Barbara Zug is mentioned but she didn't know if it was a wife or what. Barro Inken was the mother to all his chldn, until the settlement papers of Christian Zug was discovered, in which he states that he pd to his son-in-law, Michael Beeghly May 25 1774, 27 pounds, then on Jan 26 1784, 15 pounds & on Feb 6 1785, 23 pounds. So by this Michael had to be m. to Barbara Zug as early as 1774. Barro had d. Jan 20 of child birth, but no yr was given. Michael Jr., was b. Jan 10 1789. Joseph was b Jan 19 1770"
[NI021473] Daniel was a farmer, a miller, and a distillery operator. He was also a Church Of The Brethren Minister. About 1804 Daniel purchesed land in Montgomery Co OH and moved his family there from Huntingdon County PA.
