[NI012089] Jacob came to Philadelphia from Germany (Probably the Palatinate region) as an indentured servant. Many Jacob Hoffmans immigrated through Philadelphia in the 1700's.

Jacob & his sons; Silas, Benjamin, Jonathon & Isaac settled in Freedom Twp, Wood Co. OH in the 1830's, along with Ephraim Cable Jr. Jacob's great nephew.

[WOOD CO. SENTINEL, THU. APR 3 1884, PIONEER NOTES-FREEDOM TWP. 3 Cable bro.s settled about 1834 in New Rochester. "About this time (ca 1834) came the Cable bro.s, Silas, Benjamin, & Isaac from Morrow co. 1 of them settled about a mi. below New Rochester on the Daniel Fish farm, 1 on the opposite side of the river about a 1/4 mile below there, & the other on the Eisenhour ridge. The land was given them by their father. they evidently werenot accusomed to the harships of pioneer life, & had probably left homes of luxury & ease, as the howling wolves, the shaking ague, the "pesky" mosquitoes & various early privations were too much for them, & they resolved to return to their 1st love. They loaded their families & household goods in canoes & "set sail" down the Portage. But their voyage like their stay in the wilderness was attended by disaster. When they arrived about 1 mile below where Pemberville now is, 1 canoe containing their wives, chldn & clothing capsized & of course spilt the whole cargo into the river. Fortunately none were drowned but they lost all their clothing. They were no akin to the present Cable of Freedom. The latter statement has since been proven to be mistaken, they were of the Freedom Cable Families. These 3 bro.s are said to be the sons of Jacob & Mary (Walker) Cable. Jacob was a millwright of grain mills, & d. 1833-34, his wife (nee) Mary Walker, of PA departing this life in 1816. Jacob & his family lived at Island Creek Twp, Jefferson Co. OH. (Ref. to Jacob being son of Abraham & Mary Cable found in the "Jonathan Cable Book.", It states" Jacob Cable came from Fayette Co. PA, to Island Creek Twp about 1800 where he continued his trade of millwright of grain mills. Jacob & his w. Mary Walker reared a family of 7 sons & 2 dau.s: Jacob, Benjamin, Jonathon, Silas, Isaac, David, Joseph, Elizabeth & Mary.". It also states that Joseph & Ephraim Cable were 2 of the very 1st white chldn b. in the NW Territory - Ephraim 1797 & Joseph 1801".

(Judge Philip was so popular that he officiated at most of the m.s & adopted a short service so that waiting couples would not be delayed by much ceremony. It usually ended with "Give me a dollar, kiss your bride, & go about your business". Having no one present on one such occassion he called his wife Dolly & Black Harry, "I pronounce you man & wife, give me a dollar." The 1st court room was on the ground where the present court house now stands, & 1st court held Jan 2 1797. Capt.

[NI012168] Benjamin Cable, a vet of Civil war, who is now living retired after many yrs spent in farming in West Wheatfield Twp., was b. Aug 9 1832, Conemaugh Twp., Somerset Co., PA, s/o Abraham & Eliza (Reese) Cable. Benjamin Cable, s/o Abraham Cable, received his education at the place of his birth, & as a lad worked with his father at farming & stock raising. In 1851, he accompanied his parents to West Wheatfield Twp., where he secured a position driving for Jacob Gamble, the mill-owner, in whose employ he continued for 4 yrs, & also engaged in lumbering & hauling fire clay. When the Civil war broke out, Mr. Cable joined Co. D, 4th PA Vol. Cav., under Capt. George Covode & D. P. Smith, Col. Campbell Childs & James Kerr, of the 5th Army Corps, Army of the Potomac. He enlisted at Lockport, PA., Aug 26 1861, & received his honorable discharge Jul 1 1865, at Lynchburg. In the yr 1863. Mr. Cable was captured & imprisoned by the Confederates. During the greater part of his service Mr. Cable drove a team, but he also participated in a great many battles, & that his regiment was in the thickest of the fight is shown by the fact that out of his company of 100 men only 33 returned to their homes. Mr. Cable was known as a brave & faithful soldier, one who ably & cheerfully performed the duties that fell to his lot, & he was respected by his officers & admired by his comrades. On Nov 1 1865, Mr. Cable purchased the Taylor farm, a tract of 70 acres in West Wheatfield Twp., & this he continued to cultivate until Apr 1912, when he disposed of it. He is now living retired in Garfield, being tenderly cared for in his declining yrs by his dau., Mrs. Caroline E. Faust. Although he is probably the oldest man in West Wheatfield Twp., Mr. Cable retains his faculties to a remarkable degree, & is much more active than many men yrs his jr. An enterprising, industrious worker all of his life, he is now reaping the rewards that such an active life brings, & rests content that his has been a useful career & is free from stain or blemish. Mr. Cable m. Elizabeth Lichenfeld, d/o Philip Lichenfeld, & they have had the following chldn: Thomas Jefferson, deceased, m. Jane Dias; Albert; Elizabeth, m. William Uncapher, West Wheatfield; Caroline E., m. John Faust & lives with her father; Elizabeth, m. James Brett, West Wheatfield Twp.; Susan, 6 yrs; & Benjamin, m.

[NI012233] Michael Wagner served in the Amer. Rev. War. He served in the Lancaster Co. Militia, 7th Co., 5th Batt. His Nat'l SAR number is 096025 & the PA number is 7153. He also served under Capt. David Kraus's 4th Co., 2nd Batt. from 1782 thru 1783 as a Pvt. He moved westward about 1791, crossing the Alleghany Mts, from Lancaster Co. to what was to be later known as Shade Twp., Somerset Co., PA. He received a Warrant No. 1549 for 316 1/2 acres. As best as the warrant can be read, it was dated 6/11/1790 & the land was surveyed 7/2/1795. he called the land "Happy's Improvement." It must have been his nickname from his original occupation of being a whiskey distiller. He was the 1st whiskey distiller to settle on the west side of Chestnut Ridge. His land was part of Bedford Co. until 1790 when it became Somerset Co. It was also part of Stoneycreek Twp. until 1816 when it became part of Shade Twp. his farm was about 1/2 mi. from Forbes Rd & about 1 mi. west of Edmund's swamp. The distilled whiskey was sold back East to get money to pay taxes & buy supplies. The whiskey was easier to transport than the bulkier grain from which is was manufactured. The assessment list for 1816 shows Michael Waggoner assessed as a distiller with 316 acres. He later gave up the distillery occupation during the Whiskey Rebellion & became a full time farmer. Transportation was better & more people had moved into the area for trade. He was m. to Mary Seabolt, the dau. of Jacob Seabolt. Michael & Mary had 9 chldrn according to the letter he had prepared on distribution of his wealth upon his death. The Chldrn were: Catharine; Elizabeth to Henry LAPE; Margaret; Eve; Jacob m. to Mary SPECHT; Mary m. to Isaac WENDLE; Susannah m. to George HARTZELL; Michael Jr. m. to Hannah WOLFORD; & Jonathan m. to Sevilla Reel. Jacob & Susannah preceded Michael Sr. in death. He never mentioned who the other dau.s m. of if they ever did get m. Mary Seabolt WAGNER d. 1st. She is buried in the Stoystown (South East) Union Cem. in Stoystown, PA as Mary Wagner. Michael Wagner is buried in the Ling Cem., which is located in a small patch of woods, on a hilltop about 1 mi. north of Buckstown & about 1 mi. south of the Wagner Homestead. The tombstone has his name as MICHAL WAGENER. The story goes that there was a deep snow upon the death of 1 of them & they could not get to the proper to be buried together. The Ling Cem. is the holder of 4 generations of Wagner's. Both Michael & Mary's tombstones are like new for readablility of names & dates. The original Michael Wagner Sr. homestead has been in the Wagner family for 6 to 7 generations. Glenn Wagner is presently farming the homestead & since they have 3 sons it is likely that the farm will continue to stay in the Wagner family.

HEINRICH UMBERGER, the immigrant & his family emigrated from Germany via Holland to Amer. in 1733, arriving at the Port of Philadelphia on Aug 28 1733.Came on the ship HOPE of London; Daniel Reed, Master, from Rotterdam. Their names & ages on Master Reed's Ship List are as follows : Henrick Humberger 45, Hans Lenart 18, Micgel 15, Jans 10, Juliana Humberger 47, Julian 12, Lisbet 8. HEINRICH & his eldest son signed their names on the Oath of Allegiance to PA as : HEINRICH UMBERGER & HANS LEONHARD UMBERGER respectively. Heinrich Umberger & his family settled In Lebanon Twp., Lancaster Co.(now Lebanon Co.) PA. The 1st records pinpointing their residence in PA were found in Baptismal & Marriage records of Rev. John Casper Atoever & the records of Hill Ch. (Berg Kirche) - the 1st church erected in the area of Lebanon Twp. & parts west & north. Both sons, Hans Leonard & Michael, appear on the marriage record; they both m. in 1742, & dau. Julian m. in 1744. Warranty of land records for PA show that Heinrich & his 2 eldest sons received grants for a total of 550 acres of land in Lebanon Twp., Lancaster Co., PA at various times between 1743 & 1751.

Quoting from Heinrich's Will ---"If my wife dies before me, then instead of said 30 pounds, only 20 pounds my said son John is to pay unto her dau.s: 10 pounds to Anna Mary & 10 pounds to Anna Margareth. This quotation indicates that Heinrich's wife, Anna Maria Catharine, had dau.s by a previous marriage. In the late 1770's or early 1880's residents in the area inhabited by Heinrich Umberger organized the Humberger School Assc. for the purpose of building a school for the community. The school house was built on a piece of land originally owned by Heinrich Umberger. In a publication of the Lebanon Co. Historical Society entitled "THE HUMBERGER SCHOOL ASSC & ITS SCHOOL" 1911 by Cyrus Boger, it is stated, quote, "That Humberger was respected & honored among these early settlers, no other proof is needed than that they perpetuated his memory by naming their school after him."
