[NI032125] Georg Christoph came to Amer with his father, bro, & 2 sis' in 1738. The family settled in York Co., PA & became membs of Christ Luth Ch in York. Georg Christoph m, 1st Anna Marcretha Upp (Ob, Opp) ca. 1746 & had 5 chldn. Anna Marcretha d before 1758 when her father's will was written. Her father, Jacob Upp, made bequests "unto Nicholas, Andreas, Balsar, Anna Margeta, & Catherina, chldn of Christopher Knertzer my son-in-law" in his will, written 10 May 1758 & probated 30 March 1767 in York Co. Georg Christoph's father also named the 5 chldn in his will. Births & bapts of 4 of these chldn are recorded in the baptismal reg of Christ Luth Ch. Georg Christoph m, 2nd, Margareta Elizabetha. On 20 Aug 1764 Margareta Elizabetha granted a deed of divorce to Georg Christoph. The deed of divorce notes that Georg Christoph is "late of Newbury Twp," since he had already left York Co. & moved to Rowan Co., NC, where he purchased 397 acs on Grant Creek, 10 Jul 1764. Georg Christoph's 5 chldn went to Rowan Co., NC with him. By Oct 1766 Georg Christoph had m, 3rd, Eve Schmidt/Smith Adams, widow of John Adams. Eve was a widow with 5 chldn by 1762 & indications are that she & Georg Christoph were m in 1764. Eve was daug of Peter Schmidt/Smith who d in Rowan Co.NC in 1769, leaving a will which named chldn of daug Eve & her deceased husb John Adams; the will adds that Eve is, in 1767, the "wife of Christopher Knatzer."

[NI032127] Johann Balthasar was a memb of Evan Pfarramt (protestent ch) in Treschklingen. The Hauptstaatsarchiv in Stuttgart states that Treschklingen was in the dist of Sinsheim until the Protestant Ref. Presently Treschklingen is a part of Bad Rappenau, in the Kreis (Co.) Heilbronn, Baden, Germany, in the political boundaries of what was called the German Palatinate. Before 1806 Treschklingen was in the possession of the family of Gemmingen-Hornberg. Treschklingen is northwest of Heilbronn & abt 30 mis southeast of Heidelberg. In the spring of 1738 Johann Balthasar, at age 37, & Maria Dorothea Knörtzer, age 35, emigrated with 4 of their chldn to Amer. On 17 Apr 1738 an inventory of the property of Balthasar Knörtzer, including real estate, money, bedding, clothing, linens, tin articles, copper & bronze items, cabinets, barrels & kegs, farm equipment, wine, all kinds of kitchen equipment, cattle & other animals, & odds & ends, & debts, was made in Treschklingen in preparation for selling everything he could not take with him on his passage to Amer. Maria Dorothea Knörtzer d on board ship during the crossing, (Register of Luth congregation of Strayers Union Ch, Dover, York Co, PA) Johann Balthasar Knortzer is one of the 24 founders of York Christ Luth Ch, 29 S. George St, York, PA, founded in 1741. Ch records include the marriages of 2 of his chldn & christenings of many of his gchldn. Balthasar was one of several Germans naturalized in Philadelphia on Sep 25 1751. Abt 1760 Baltzer & Catharina (Wolfe Grass) (his 2nd wife) moved from their farmland into the town of York & took up residence there, remaining in York Town at least from 1762 until their deaths. They lived in a house built on lot No. 84 on the east side of Beaver St., which he had bought in 1754. When Baltzer wrote his will, he left that house in Catharine’s possession. Johann Balthasar Knörtzer appears to have been educated. He signed his name in German script to the ship list when he arrived at the port in Philadelphia & to his will in 1767. He became quiet well-to-do in the new world. By the time he wrote his will, at age 66, he had already distributed more than 300 pounds in the money of Great Britain among his 4 adult chldn & his step-son.

[NI032146] John Balser was b in York Co., PA abt 1750. He left York Co. in 1764 with his father & siblings, moving to Rowan Co., NC. He went back to PA in late 1779 when his step-gmother d, probably to get his & his siblings' portion of the estate that was willed to them by his gfather, Johann Balthasar upon the death of his widow, Anna Catherina. While in PA, John Balser served in the Rev War. In "Central PA Genealogy Magazine," Sep 1968, 'Soldiers from Cumberland Valley in the Revolution is listed "Balser Kinatzer, enlisted during the war, aged abt 31 yrs, abt 5 ft & 8 in. high, b in York Co.; last place of residence Roan (Rowan) Co., NC; can do a little at the schemaker trade, dark brown hair, dark complexion, of German extraction, 18 Apr 1782; bounty pd by Captain Bush." After the war, John Balser left PA & went to Shenandoah Co., VA where he appeared in the 1785 tax list. He remained in Shenandoah Co. at least until 6 Nov 1787 when he m Mary Pennicuff (Bennighoff), probable d/o Philip Pennicuff. John Balser returned to Davie Co., NC where his father was living then. He left there with his bro Nicholas who was in Sevier Co., TN by Aug 1789. John Balser was in Knox Co., TN by 1 Apr 1794 when he serv as a Pvt in a detachment of infantry under the command of Ezekial Buchanan, Regt of Washington Dist Militia, commanded by Landon Carter, which was mustered into serv on 1 Apr 1794 at Knoxville for the protection of the frontiers southwest of the river Ohio against Indians. The Muster Roll lists him as Paulser Cornatzer & shows he was called into serv on 1 Mar 1794 & discharged 6 Jun 1794. By 1804 John Balser had moved on to Wayne Co., KY where he is listed as Balsher Kenatzer in the tax records of that yr as 1 white male over 21 yrs of age, owning 1 horse. He remained in Wayne Co. at least through 1814. The 1810 Wayne Co., KY census records Palser Kanatzer, age over 45, along with 2 males age 18-26 (?Philip & ?John), 1 male age 0-10 (?David), 2 females age 10-20, & 1 female age 0-10. John Balser appears to have gone to Fentress Co., TN by 1815 with his sons. The 1820 Fentress Co. census records with Philip Conatser, John Balser’s son, a male age 45+, & the 1830 census records a male age 80-90 living with Philip Conatser. This male is probably his father, John Balser.

[NI032177] Andrew Connatser was in Wayne Co., KY by 10 Jul 1806 when a land grant of 61 acs was granted to him. The 1810 Wayne Co., KY census shows he was still there. He returned to Sevier Co., TN after 1810. A TN land grant which had been his father's was granted to him in 1809. Minutes of Big Pigeon Bapt Ch show that Cathy Carnacher (?Andrew's mother) became a memb there in 1811 "by experience." Andrew & Mary Connacher became membs in 1818. In Mar 1819 a group left Big Pigeon Ch & formed Bethel Bapt Ch. A list of membs included Andrew & Mary Conatser. Andrew became a Deacon at Bethel Bapt Ch in Jul 1828 & was Ordained a Minister at the same Ch in May 1834. He was Pastor at Alder Branch, Bethel, Tuckaleechee & Bethany, serving both Alder Branch & Bethany before 1851. The book TN's Pioneer Bapt Preachers, written in 1919, by J. J. Burnett, says: "Andrew Connatser was a preacher in Sevier Co. in the early half of the last century, noted in several ways, & particularly gifted in exhortation & prayer. He was of German descent, & could speak the German language, but was b in this country. He was ordained deacon of Bethel Ch, Sevier Co., "Sat Aug 4 1829," & later was ordained to the ministry by authority of the same ch. For a no. of yrs he was a messenger of Bethel Ch to the TN Assc. He was pastor of Alder Branch & other chs. In physical build he was rawboned, muscular & sinewy, a man of rare physical strength & endurance. Before his conversion, according to the custom of his day & neighborhood, he drank some, & would "treat" his associates & receive "treats" in return, on special occasions. After his conversion, even after he had become a preacher & "had preached his 3rd sermon," I was told, 7 of his companions undertook to get him to drink with them & to "treat" in the old-time way. To prove his hospitality & to show that he was not "stingy," he yielded to their solicitations & furnished the "treats." But they were not satisfied; they wanted him to drink "nolens volens," & undertook to force him. Thinking he had gone far enough on the "2-mile" rd with his persecutors, or had taken enough of their abuse to satisfy the law of "non-resistance to evil," instead of turning the other cheek to the smiters, with his good fist he landed blows on the cheeks of abt 7 of his assailants, knocking them down as fast as they approached him. After that they "let him alone, the argument of hard knocks proving effective where the gentle means of moral suasion had proved a failure." For many yrs before his death Andrew Connatser lived in pioneer style in an old house in Sevier Co. which had been used as a fort in fighting the Indians. It had holes in the sides, corresponding to the portholes of a ship, through which the whites could poke their guns & fire in case it was necessary to defend themselves from the Indians. In 1851 he was pastor of Tuckaleechee Ch (Min. TN Assc). He was also pastor of Bethel & Bethany chs. He m a Miss Mary Blevins. He & his wife both lived in KY before coming to TN. He has a no. of living descs in Sevier Co.. " The will of Andrew Connatser, dated 4 Nov 1862, lists his wife Mary Ann, 4 sons Daniel, Amasa, Andrew, & Reuben, & 5 daugs Polly Hearst, Sarah Long, Catherine Thomas, Emma Romines & Martha Webb. Son Daniel was his executor. According to the 3rd record book of Bethel Ch, he d 22 Nov 1862, 18 days after he wrote the will. He is bur Bethel Cem, Sevier Co., TN

[NI032320] It is believed that Daniel lived in the Cookes House, built in 1761 near Codorus St. in York. The horses belonging to the delegates to the Continental Congress, which convened in York from Sep 1777 until Jun 1778, were kept in pastures around
the house. Thomas Paine, the Englishman who wrote "Common Sense", stayed there during his visit to York in 1776.

[NI032357] Paulus came to Amer. with his father at the age of 10. He lived with his family in Lancaster Co. PA until he moved to York Co. about 1745. On 12 Sep 1749 he bought one of the original house lots in Yorktown at the southeast corner of King
and Water Streets, the later now known as Pershing Av. He never built on the lot and shortly returned to Lancaster Co. where he married Barbara. In 1763 the family moved to York Co. where he purchased a farm for 250 pounds in Dover Twp. He made a donation towards the establishment of Quickel's Church, a congregation of Reformed and Lutheran denominations. He served as one of the church's original elders and trustees. Paulus was a farmer throughout his lifetime.

[NI032497] Changed religion from Baptist to Methodist when her son, Daniel Frank, reached baptism age. She then joined her husband's church.

[NI032502] Heinrich moved from Kleingemund into Neckargemund, another small community not far away. Here he was married to Anna Elizabeth Scheckenbach, a native of the town. Their children were born there, and both Heinrich and his wife died and are buried there. Incidentally, in 1988 the village of Neckargemund celebrated it's 1000'th anniversary, having been founded in the year 988.

[NI032508] Orphilia, a machinist, went South with his bride in 1881. He first was in Macon GA and then moved to Sandersville GA where he established a machine shop. He died at age 32 from Brights disease. This was shortly after the birth of his
youngest son. The two oldest sons, Robert Lewis and Orphilia Clay, were sent back to York to live with their uncle, Rush. The two younger sons, Harry and Frank, stayed with their mother as they were all she could support.

[NI032511] The Wilt lineage begins with Andreas Wild who was born about 1600. The only record of his name appears as the father of Heinrich who was born in 1626. Heinrich spent his early life in the village of Kleingemund in Baden, Germany. It may therefore be assumed that this was also the home of Andreas. There is some speculation that Andreas may have been of Swiss origin, but that cannot be ascertained at this time. Kleingemund is a small village in the Neckar Valley near Heidelberg.

[NI032742] HALL, NANCY (HANKS] The following is compiled from, Baber, Adin "Nancy Hanks the Destined Mother of a President" Kansas, Ill. 1963 She was orphaned at Age 9 and went to live with Her Aunt Rachel wife of Richard Berry Sr., but it is of some question weather she went there first or lived with one of her father's brother's first. Of whom Joseph was. Richard Berry Sr., had removed to Kentucky four years prior to her birth. It is believed that she was sent to North Carolina first. The reasonable but unprovable presumption is that her older brother Abraham Jr. took her in in Caswell Co., NC. There is a mild tradition that she lived with Hanks relatives at Piper's Gap, Va. The strongest evidence is that she lived with her "Uncle Dicky" Hanks in the Catawba River country of Carolina.
There was a stone with the following inscription on the Hanks farm that reads:
"THIS STONE MARKS THE SITE of the log cabin home of DICKY HANKS an uncle of NANCY HANKS mother of ABRAHAM LINCOLN Nancy spent much of her childhood here with her uncle Dicky Erected in 1900 by the descendants of C. T.
Stowe" There is no reasonable cause to doubt it. It was thought to be such a fine arrangement that when a child was born to Richard and Phebe (Hayes) Hanks, July 25, 1805, that they named her after Nancy. This Nancy married Luke Brown in 1821, in then Lincoln Co. Dicky Hanks and his wife are most likely buried in the old graveyard south of Belmont. North of Belmont is a well known cemetery named the Old Goshen Cemetery, noted for a large number of Revolutionary War burials. Also there within is a row of Hanks Graves with a row of Berry (Barry) graves, and then next a line of Ewing Graves. Richard Berry m. Polly Ewing in Kentucky, in 1794, it is likely they becme aquainted in NC. The Berry settlement is where she ended up and lived there till her marriage. She came up through Hickory Nut Gap and over the Cumberland Gap to Kentucky. It is not known with whom she traveled but her son Abraham mentioned that she came with some of her relations but not her parents. She could have come with one of her three brothersthat settled there, she had cousins, sons of her Uncle Joseph, who may have taveled back and forth over the Wilderness Road. She had other kin as well that came to Kentucky about the same time. Peter Hanks moved from near Salisbury, NC into Montgomery Co., Ky. where some of his sons had come by way of the Ohio River. Mosesanks, Nancy's uncle brought his family intoo Pulaski Co.,Ky. from Va. in 1798. Fleetwood Hanks came into Henry Co. Her own home was established with her marriage to Thomas Lincoln June 12, 1806. Nancy's first child, daughter Sarah was born in Elizabethtown and there was no shortage of Doctor's, her second Abraham who was born at Sinking Springs was attended by Peggy Walters and Rebecca Keith who lived about a half mile away. The third born Thomas came to being on the isolated Knob Creek Farm. She nursed in illness her little boy who sickened unto death. and wept for him at his grave in the Redmon Cemetery of the Knob Hill neighborhood, before she moved on to Indiana. It was there that she died. Nancy Hanks, orphaned at nine, daughter of a father also orphaned t nine, and mother of a son who was orphaned by his mother, also at nine. Nancy Hanks Lincoln's life from her wedding to her death has been told over and over, sometimes with kindness; sometimes with unkindness; sometimes with sorrow, she sleeps now in the loving hills of Southern Indiana. "All that I am or shall ever hope to be I owe to my loving angel mother, God bless her." Abraham Lincoln to his friend, Usher F. Linder The following comes from, Warren, Louis A., "The Shipley Ancestry of Lincoln's Mother", Indiana Magazine of History, Vol 29 No. 3, September 1933, pgs 204-212. Richard Berry Jr., was the guardian of Nancy Hanks at the time of her marriage. He signed her marriage bond, and as was the custom it was signed by kin. He married Polly Ewing, 10 Oct 1794 (see above). Another descendant of this same Richard Berry Jr., testifies that Richard Berry Sr. married a Shipley, who was the sister of Nancy Hanks Lincoln's mother. They took little Nncy to live with them after she was orphaned, but later went to the house of Richard Berry Jr.
Richard Berry Sr., m. Rachel Shipley Evidence that Rachel Shipley's sister is the mother of Nancy Hanks, comes from branches of the Berry family that are testified to authenticity. Ms. Armstrong to writer 2/29/1933, "Abraham Lincoln's grandmother was a Shipley and married a Hanks. Her daughter, Nancy Hanks, went to relatives in Kentucky and married a Lincoln. Abraham Lincolns grmother and my grgrmother, Margaret Shipley, were sisters." It is also noted that by traduition there is talk of a fifth Shipley Sister, Lucy who married a Hanks said to be James Hanks. Tradition further claims that she was a widow by the time they reached Kentucky and had a daughter Nancy, who married a Lincoln. Evidence from many sources seems to confirm that Lucy Shipley, Daughter of Robert Shipley, married to James Hanks was the mother of Nancy Hanks. Lucy Shipley's sister, Naomi was born 4/26/1748; her sister Ann's first child was born in 1766; her sister Rachels third child was married in 1781, Lucy would have been one of the youngest daughters as her daughter Nancy was born not much before 1785. The Beech Fork Community in Washington Co., Ky. is the home of the Berry Sr. family, an uncle to Nancy Hanks, also where the widow Lincoln and her five children lived, Thomas the youngest became playmates with Nancy Hanks. Adjacent community on Doctor's Fork were Shipley, Hanks, Sparrow.

James bought land with John Judy (m to wife's sis, Mary) on Smith Creek in 1849 & lived in the same hollow until their deaths. It is not known whether James is bur. in the Hartman Cem. if he was lost in the Civil War.

[NI034371] Possibly married a Sharer.

[NI034417] the first Householder to arrive in this country was Johan Adam Householder in 1739. At the age of 20 years, Johan Adam Householder (Haushalter/ Hausshalter/ Housholder/ Housholter) emigrated to PA arriving on the ship named Friendship that sailed from Rotterdam, a port servicing a large area of Europe. Before coming to this country, the Friendship made its last stop at Deal. The Ship Friendship arrived in the Philadelphia harbor on September 3, 1739 with 60 men ranging in age from 16 to 58 years of age. Besides these adult men, the Ship held 90 other passengers who were female and/or children. Most of the passengers were considered Palatines, leaving their homes along the Rhine River in Europe. They were coming to PA to escape from persecution in Europe. At one time, William Penn had personally recruited as well as sent envoys to the Palatinate area for new settlers to live in the colony of PA. Johan Adam Householder was the only person with that surname reported on that voyage of the Friendship to Philadelphia. However, his brother, Johan George Householder, may have accompanied Johan Adam Householder on the voyage. As well, Margaretha Householder and Elizabetha Householder may have also been on this 1739 voyage of the Friendship. Since the ship list only contained males over 16 years of age, Johan George, Margaretha, and Elizabetha would not have been listed. This author presumes that these three individuals were related to Johan Adam Householder because of marriage records, wills, and other information that place them in the same time period and place where and when Johan Adam Householder was living in PA. Before boarding the Ship Friendship, it is unclear where Johan Adam Householder made his home in Europe. He may have lived in Russhelm Marggrafschaft, Durlach which was the place of birth for Lorentz Householder. 2/ furlach was located in the Palatine area of what is now southwestern Germany. Modern Germany shows Purlach near Karlruhe, Germany. As well, Durlach is only a few miles from the border of France and close to the Rhine River. From 1565-1715, Durlach was the residence of the margraves of Baden-Durlach. This area likely saw many battles at that time. For example, in 1689, the French destroyed a castle built in the 1500's. The ruins of the castle exist today in Durlach. Documents show that Lorentz Householder, who came from Durlach to this country, knew Johan Adam Householder in Lancaster Co., PA after Lorentz emigrated to PA in 1752 on the Ship Rawley. Although undocumented, Lorentz and Johan Adam may have been relatives coming from the same location in Europe. The place of birth of Lorentz Householder is named on his tombstone, written in German and located in the cemetery at Brickerville, PA. Lorentz was born August 13, 1727 and died in Lancaster Co., PA on January 5, 1805."
"Johan Adam Householder was a supporter of the American Revolution. In 1778, he was listed among the men in Washington Co., MD who took the Oath of Fidelity and Support to the Government in the State of MD. By taking the Oath, Johan Adam Householder, along with the others taking it, was considered to be committing treason against the Crown of England. The British considered that those signing the Oath were committing an overt act of resistance.

[NI034482] !History of Martin Family.

[NI034602] came with his father HANS HERR in 1710, Bishop Hans Burkholder & Melchior Brenneman formed a settlement in 1717 along the Conestoga.""On Oct 12 1719, ABRAHAM HERR & his brother, Hans, petitioned James Steel for a grant of 400 acres for their brother, Isaac, who had recently arrived. In the 1720s, according to the estimates of architectural historians, he built a house that still stands at 25 Bentley Lane in Lancaster Twp. near Millersville on land that went to his son, Rudy.

[NI034612] HANS HERR was b. in 1639, in Switzerland, at or near Zurich. He became a member of the Mennonite religious society & a prominent minister of that denomination. When persecution became unendurable, many of his congregation emigrated with him to the Palatinate in Germany, which was then governed by a ruler who promised religous freedom. This was satisfactory until the Palatinate fell into the hands of other rulers, & the Mennonites were again subject to persecution. When this occurred, a number of them visited William Penn in London, in 1707, & arranged terms with him to colonize a portion of what is now Lancaster Co.. In 1709, Hans Herr, John R. Bundely, Hans Mylin, Martin Kendig, Jacob Miller, Hans Funk, Martin Oberholtzer, Wendel Bowman & others bought 10,000 acres of land on the south side of Pequea creek. A warrant was issued for the land Oct 10 1710, & it was surveyed Oct 23 1710. In the meantime, Martin Kendig traveled to Europe & returned with members of the families of those who had come over in 1709. Hans Herr settled near LAMPETER, & later lived with his son, Christian Herr, near WILLOW STREET, where the latter built a large stone dwelling in 1719, which is still standing. Here the venerable Hans Herr d. in 1725." "A Mem. in the Willow St. Mennonite Cem., where HANS HERR is presumed to have been buried, was erected by a Herr reunion group. It gives Sep 17 1639 & Oct 11 1725 as his respective birth & death dates, & May 1 1639 & Jun 9 1730 for Elizabeth Mylin Kendig Herr. Theodore Herr compiler of the 1908 Herr genealogy gives 1644 for her birth date & 1730 for her death. The reunion group's, Theodore Herr's, & Martin G. Weaver's sources for all these dates are currently ukwn. In response to this situation, numerous researchers within the past 50 yrs have attempted to document the existence of Hans Herr. The tradition of his being the aged father of his Herr family in America stems from oral history recorded in 1844 by I. Daniel Rupp History of Lancaster Co., who in the course of his research interviewed 'Pequea' Christian Herr, a Mennonite bishop & Herr des. Rupp's version of the Hans Herr story was repeated with variations by many later historians.
