[NI031104] Since the inhabitants of all villages located in this area were also subjected to the suffering almost every year, especially during the years 1641, 1642 and 1645.The local population as well as the landgraves'exchequer(magisterial tax office)carried the losses.They had to forgo road taxes and customs revenue for many years.In 1637 the budget of the city of Darmstadt noted that the city of Hahn could not collect any toll fees for escort services as widespread war and unrest stopped any convoy (on horseback).The year of 1645 was a particularly bad year.During this year the imperial general Jan van Werth settled in Pfungstadt but he was replaced in June by the French and Swedish corps under Marshal Turenne and Hans Christoffer earl of Konigsmarck.The latter confiscated horses in Pfungstadt. These were intended for the new troupes.They were confiscated from the village inhabitants Johann Reinhard, Philipp Olmuller, Ewald Marstaller, Klaus Crossmann, Hans Wust, Heinrich Heil, Peter Wambold, Johann Hasenzahl, Martin Heil and Jakob Wambold who were amongst those that had managed to save some of their property from the war. In view of this it was hardly astonishing that the local administration was reduced to sporadic activities. According to the records for the eriod between Apr.of 1634 and Jan. of 1650 the court and jury could hardly ever perform their duty, and between 1645 and 1649 only a single court session was recorded. Apparently the magistrate - from 1641 this was the agile Johann Arleder, who presented the area of Pfungstadt with various reconstruction projects - encountered more and more problems when assembling the required number of jury members."
Born in Hesse Darmstardt, Germany in 1702 and immigrated to No. Amer. with his wife Barbara, in 1729 on the ship Mortonhouse. The records show that this ship sailed from Rotterdam and, clearing from Deal, England, June 21, 1729, arrived at Philadelphia on August 19, 1729, and immediately upon his arrival, Frederick Ludwig subscribed to the oath of allegiance to George II of England. He was married in Germany and had at least one of his children there. (Also on board were Johann George, Georg, and Mary Ann Crossman. He lived in Providence Twp of Philadelphia Co. (now Montgomery Co.). At the time of birth of Frederick (son of Johann George Mostoller, Frederick Ludwig's brother) Frederick Ludwig and Johann George must have lived 25 or 30 miles apart. Evidently the two families got together at Goshenhoppen Reformed Ch. on the occassion of the bapt. of Frederick since Frederick Ludwig and his wife Anna Barbara (STARK) were sponsors for the bapt. Frederick is listed as a Revolutionary War Veteran, serving in the 4th Group, 8th Company, 6th Battalion of Philadelphia Co. Friedrick Marstaller was a member of the Augusta Evangelical Luth. ch. (same as brother Johann). This could be the brother. Friedrick had 6 children: c Anna Margartha 13 Jan 1732, c Friedrick 11 Aug 1734 ,father of Rebecca b 30 Nov 1766, c Georg 1 Jun 1736, c Jon. Daniel 11 Feb 1733, c Johann heinrich 31 Aug 1730, married Anna Barbara Van Forren on 14 Dec 1753, c Valentine 28 Dec 1738. 19th August 1729. He settled upon the banks of Shippack Creek in New Providence twp, now Montgomery Co., PA, near Trappe, where he bought 173 acres and 78 perches. He was prominent in the founding of the August Luth. ch. at Trappe, PA, which was erected in 1743. His name appears today on a mural stone at the front door entering the church. Before the Augustus congregation was organized, however, Frederick was a trustee of the German Anabaptist Society (Minnonites) of Methacton (now Worcester) twp, Montgomery Co., PA, but at the organization of Augustus Luth. congregation, he had all his children bapt. by teh Rev. John Casper Stoever.
The death and burial of Frederick is recorded in Volume I of the records of the Augustus Luth. Church and reads as follows: "Buried October 17, 1753, Frederick Ludwig Marsteller, who died in the night 14-15 October."
In 1776 another family came to this wilderness-the Mostollers. Frederick Mostoller came from Northampton Co. and settled near Friedens station where about 1782, he erected a gristmill. He lived and died in Somerset Twp. His sons were John and George. Frederick Mostoller (Marsteller) - 2/11/1737 - 12/2/1815, lived to be 78 yrs old. Frederick was the first of the family to adopt the "Mostoller" name. He and his wife Katherine raised a family of 8 children. Prior to his migrating west, we find him operating in Northampton Co.The assessment list of Allen Twp of 1775 shows Frederick Marsteller with 200 acres, two cattle, two horses, one mare and he had one bound servant. In 1776 he went west to Bedford Co., about 200 miles. Frederick Mostoller, who in 1776 migrated to this section, which was then called Cumberland Co., and established himself as a pioneer, being one of the first three settlers in what is now the northern part of Somerset Co. Bears, wolves, and other wild animals abounded in the forest at that time; and Indians made frequent calls at the rude cabins of the few inhabitants that ventured to here. He worked at his trade of a blacksmith. He also built and operated the first grist mill in this part of the Co., and for several years, served as constable. In 1775, just before moving to Bedford co., he had obtained a warrant for 300 acres of land in Bedford co.
