[NI057873] Emma was b. at Bloomfield, Walworth Co., WI. Obit: Mrs. Emma Hargis nee Katzenberger passed away at her home, 7506 Emerald Ave., Chicago. Death was due to heart trouble from which she was a patient sufferer for many years. She was born at Powers Lake 20 Sep 1871 being the oldest dau. of the late John and Ida Katzenberger.

Funeral serv.s were held in Chicago Sat. morning & Sun. afternoon in Genoa City. Interment was at Hillside Cem.

[NI057896] Leonard probably went to Albemarle with his parents. He and his brothers, George & Adam, bought 267 acres at the headwaters of the Hardware River in 1789. In 1805, he bought 82 acres of land in the same area, which included Appleberry Mountain.

[NI057899] He was m. to Elisabeth Shoener (dau. of Johan Shoener & Anna Maria) on 27 Dec 1795 in Falkener Swamp Reformed Church.19 Elisabeth Shoener was born on 10 Oct 1770. She d. between 1825 and 1855 in Earl Twp.,Berks Co., PA. The Hist. of Berks Co. records a Nicholas as m. to " a Shaner " New Hanover Luth. Church records show " Johannes Trumheller ( m. ) Elisabeth Shoner" 12- 27- 1795 Either he went by the name Johannes Nicholas, or Elisabeth m. one of the Johannes'. It seems most likely that he is Johannes, son of Johannes D. All of the church records of the chldrn refer to Johannes & Elisabeth ( Shoner) as the parents.

[NI057902] According to the 'History of Berks Co. PA' "Leonard lived in Earl Twp. He is b. in an unmarked grave at Oley Churches. He was a farmer & owned a small farm, now the property of the Andrew Leffel estate. He m. Susanna Breidegam. She is buried at Oley Churches and has a tombstone. He is buried by her side..." He was married to Susanna Breidigam (daughter of George Br´┐Żutigam and Sarah).13 Susanna Breidigam was born on 17 Feb 1787. She died on 14 Dec 1873 in Earl Twp. Berks County, PA

[NI057904] was born on 18 May 1792 in Earl Twp., Berks Co. PA. He d. on 24 Apr 1882 in Earl Twp., Berks Co. PA. William owned the the farm in Earl Twp that descended to his only son, Charles; his grandson, Henry; & his great-grandson, Luther. He was a well read & intelligent, & was "as well known for his fine physique & great strength as for his sterling traits of character." He was a captain in the War of 1812. He is b. next to Elizabeth at the Oley churches in Spangsville. He was m. to Elizabeth Fisher (daughter of Jacob Fisher and Anna). Elizabeth Fisher was born on 9 May 1793 in Oley Twp. Berks Co. PA. She died on 20 Oct 1867 in Earl Twp., Berks Co. PA.

[NI057916] At the time of Philip's birth, the family lived in the Mahantango valley. He later moved to Adamsdale, and finally to Landingville, where he died. He is buried in the old cemetary at Schuylkill Haven. He was married to Elizabeth Emerich.

[NI057919] His his birthdate on his tombstone reads Nov 7, 1772. He d. 7 Feb 1859 in Pike Twp. There is some question as to the identity (parentage) of Daniel, grandfather of Reuben. There are 3 possible individuals: Daniel, son of J. Nicholas & Catherine (Floyd- Northumberland Co.),who's d.o.b. we can put at after 1776, when his parents were married; Daniel, son of Johannes & Regina, who's d.o.b. we know is 11-17-1773 (birth records- Zion [Moselem] Lutheran, Richmond Twp.); & Daniel, son of Leonard & Susanna Breidigam, ( Montgomery, Hist. of Berks Co. ,1909, pp 1029) who's d.o.b. we can, after a series of deductions,place after 1800. In the Book of Biographies , Berks Co. , pp 360-361,in an article about J.L. Drumheller, "an enterprising merchant of Topton " we find that J.L. is a son of Jacob F., b. 12-8-1812 / d. 1890 , m. Cath. Leiss; & is the youngest of 10 chldrn of Daniel, an" early settler of Pike Twp." who m. Elizabeth Frey & d. at age 80. The Hist. of Berks Co. Pa. (1909) has 2 somewhat contradictory entries: 1. pp 1675- " Nicholas Drumheller had a son Daniel, who lived in Pike Twp. His wife Elizabeth bore him chldrn as follows: Elizabeth ; Hannah ; Daniel ; John ; Lydia; Jacob & Reuben, the 2 last being named executors of the will probated Mar 1 1859." This being the Nicholas who had a son "above 16" according to the 1790 census.(J. Nicholas) 2. pp 1029" Leonard, son of John (& Regina), d. in 1837. His wife Susanna obtained 30 acres David & Hettie are the only chldrn mentioned in the will, but reference is found elsewhere to Daniel , whose wife was Elizabeth, a resident of Pike Twp. Daniel's will probated in 1859, mentions these chldrn : Elizabeth, Hannah, Daniel, John, Lydia, Jacob & Reuben." I believe Daniel, grandfather of J.L., is the same person as Daniel, father of Reuben. The alternative is that there is a Jacob F. & 9 siblings that there appears to be no other record of. While this is not impossible, it seems unlikely. Also, birth & death records point to this fact. The only problem is the statement that Jacob was the youngest of 10 chldrn. The biography was written with info obtained from interviews w/ J.L., maybe it was simply a mistake on his part or a transcription error. Tombstone readings done at Hill Church Cem. abt. 1940 which are at the Historical Soc. of Montgomery Co. give Daniel's d.o.b. 7 Nov 1772. And an obit in the Berks & Schuylkill Journal of 26 Feb 1859 says Daniel of Pike Twp. d. at age 87. I believe these 2 sources are conclusive evidence that the Daniel in question was the son of Johannes D. He was m. to Elizabeth Frey (daughter of Jacob Frey & Maria Catherine Schadt) on 2 Apr 1795 in Falkener Swamp Reformed Church.19 Elizabeth Frey was born on 4 Sep 1775. She died on 12 Feb 1859 in Pike Township.

[NI057943] He was considered by all as one of the most progressive men in that (Pike) Twp

[NI057948] He was a tailor by trade, working at it from the time he was 11 until 2 yrs before his death. In 1860 he bought the farm " previously owned by David Drumheller in Oley Twp." A series of deductions & the 1860 atlas of Berks Co., which shows a piece of property belonging to the "estate of Dd. Drumheller", points to the conclusion that this was the farm of David, son of David, who was "shot by a man named Pott at Earlville" in 1859.

[NI057955] " William, son of Leonard, was b. in Earl Twp. He was a shoemaker, post - fence maker and farmer. Before 1845 he bought a fifty acre tract near Pine Grove school house, now owned by his son, Mahlon B. " "Wilhelm" , according to New Hanover Church marriage records.

[NI057959] tombstone at Oley Churches cemetary reads 'Trumheller'

[NI057984] He was a prominant citizen of Landingville. He was, at different times, a boat builder, a merchant, & was postmaster. He is buried at Schuylkill Haven.

[NI058013] George served as an artillary Lieutenant in the CSA. He was wounded on 3 Jun 1864 near Richmond, VA. He d. of those wounds on 11 Jun. Place of burial is ukwn. After his death his widow & chldrn moved to Marshall, MO. Sometime after that the surname changed to "Drumeller". One version holds that Martha objected to the word 'hell' in her surname. Another holds that Drumeller corresponds more closely to a common German name: Mueller. Still another holds that Martha wanted a complete break from her late husb. family. This version is plausible, for no info on the Drumheller family was passed to the chldrn.

[NI058073] The article in the Book of Biographies on her son, J.L. Drumheller give her surname as "Leiss." According to students of German, the difference between 'ie' and 'ei' is a definite & important one. It is a mistake Germans seldom make. "Leiss" would be pronounced "Lice" and "Liess" would be "Lease" Her gravestone reads "Catherine Liess." I believe this to be the correct spelling.

[NI058154] Pvt. Peter Drumheller served in the 151st PA Vol.s, Co. 'K'; losing his life in the 1st day at Gettysburg, probably on McPhearson's Ridge. His wounds were described as "abdomen torn open & both legs severed at the upper joint by a cannonball, & d." At about 2:30 on July 1st, the 151st was ordered to a reserve position on the ridge, just behind the Iron Brigade & Biddles Brigade. Within half an hr. a gap, caused by severe losses, opened between those brigades. The 151st was ordered into that gap. In perfect order, the Reg.'t moved forward. Men began to fall even before they gained their position. Pettigrew's 26th NC came within 50 ft of the 151st. Then the the two reg.'s riddled each other at almost point blank range. Soon Biddles Brigade fell back, & then the Iron Brigade, exposing the 151st to terrible flanking fire. Finally, the order was given to retire, firing. The 26th NC lost 584 out of 800 men, the 151st, 337 out of the 467 engaged, mostly in the space of 40 min.s. One survivor later wrote: "Every man stood up to the work & fought like a tiger without a single exception. Our poor boys fell around me like ripe apples in a storm. God bless them. They were heroes - every one of them." General Doubleday, commander of the 1st Corps, says this: "At Gettysburg they won, under brave M'Farland, an imperishable fame. They defended the left front of the 1st Corps against vastly superior numbers; covered its retreat against the overwhelming masses at the Seminary, west of town, & enabled me, by their determined resistance, to withdraw the corps in comparative safety. This was on the 1st day. In the crowning charge of the 3d day of the battle, the shattered remnants of the 151st PA, with the 20th NY State Militia, flung themselves upon the front of the rebel column & drove it from ..a slashing in which it had taken shelter from a flank attack of the VT troops. I can never forget the serv.s rendered me by this regiment, directed by the gallantry & genius of M'Farland. I believe they saved the 1st Corps, & were among the chief instruments to save the Army of the Potomac, & the country, from unimaginable disaster."

Trib Fri Dec 9 1898 JOHN VARNER'S DEAD BODY FOUND THE AGED MAN HAD WANDERED TO NEAR NO. 6 BRIDGE & PERISHED John Varner who had been missing from the home of his dau. Mrs. John Fisher, 558 Plum St., Walnut Grove, since Thu of last wk, was dead about a half mile from No. 6 bridge of the PA RR, E. Taylor Twp, 11:30 am last Sun by Charles Kuddel, of Franklin Boro accompanied by several other persons. He had left the home of his dau. Thu afternoon, presumably to come to Johnstown. He had been in the habit of following the st. car tracks home, & it is supposed he got on the wrong line, which led him through Franklin Boro where he was seen Thu eve. A search in the vicinity Fri & Sat, however, was fruitless. A large posse was organized in Franklin Sun morn for the purpose of searching the woods above that village for the old gentleman. He was tracked to the Emerson Farm & thence to the Wilson stone quarry. From there he went to the Old Portage RR & then cut down over the hillside to No. 6 bridge, which he crossed & wandered a half mile north where he was found lying in a hole by the roots of a tree that had been blown down but a short time. As soon as he was discovered other memb.s of the searching party were called & someone of them suggested that the Coroner be informed. Police man Samuel Snyder, Conemaugh, arrived soon, however, & when he saw no tracks about the place except those made by Mr. Varner, he suggested that the remains be carried to the PA RR. this was done, & the body was placed on an empty freight engine & brought to Conemaugh, where it was placed in charge of Undertaker Howard Davis, who prepared it for bur. Mr Davis took the remains to the home of Mrs. Fisher between 12-1 pm Mon. & at 9am Thu they were taken overland to Elton, this Co., where serv.s were held in the afternoon in the Luth. Ch. at that place by Rev. Oscar Wilson, Walnut Grove U.B. Ch.. Bur. the Ch. cem. Mr. Kuddel & others had been in the vicinity of No. 6 bridge Sat afternoon in search of Mr. Varner. They had with them a dog & when they started for home in the eve. they had considerable trouble in getting the animal to follow them. He had been barking at some object a short distance from where they had been searching, & they are now under the impression that he had discovered the body. They took the dog with them again Sun morn & followed him to the place where the body lay, which was 2 miles east of Conemaugh, on a piece of land owned by the Cambria Steel Co. It is thought by those who made the discovery of the body that Mr. Varner tripped & fell into the hole, being stunned by the fall, & that he was frozen to death. There were no marks on the body to indicated that he received any violent treatment. John Varner b.

[NI058448] Known as "The Quaker", moved from New Jersey to Lancaster Co, PA in 1738-44 and on to York Co, PA in 1762. A prominent member of the "Friends", the Quaker Movement. He was buried in the Friends burying grounds with a stone marker marking his grave

[NI058556] He was a deputy sheriff in 1714 in Bucks Co., PA. James Moon, Jr. came to the American colonies from England with his parents around 1682.

[NI058567] BIRTH: place from Hopewell Friends History;s/o Simon Moon and Lowry/Louretha Hunphrey (from Fran Colyer) !DEATH: from will, Berkeley Co, VA will book 3 p 622, written 2 May 1804, probated 25 Jun 1804; executors sons Thomas and Simon. Wife Jane and Chldn mentioned by name. RESIDENCE: England, by 1748 was in Frederick and Berkeley Co VA, in 1775 he founded the town of Arden WV southwest of Martinsburg, named for his home town in England. Middle Creek MM was held there.

[NI058574] Lived at East Calne, Chester, PA until 1731. Moved to Lancaster, PA. In 1747 moved to Frederick, VA and were members of Hopewell MM. Came to America with William Penn in 1683.

[NI058589] The Moon Family Source: "A Short History of the Moon Family" by Mrs. Elmer Anderson, Manhattan, KS - 1964 Legend gives us the origin of the name Moon & tells us it was 1st bestowed as an honor. Here is the story as it was given to us: "The Norsemen were great travelers & some of them went to France & settled in what is now Normandy, becoming a part of the Normans. They had a brotherhood called the "Order of the Crescent", the men of which were tall, with fair complexion & blue eyes, with character above reproach. When Wm the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy, invaded England in 1066, the Order of the Crescent accompanied him. One of the native strongholds proved to be very stubb & the duke was unable to take it. He called for volunteers & the Order of the Crescent stepped forward. They successfully stormed the castle & William ordered that each member of the brotherhood should be called Moon, in honor of the event." Legend or history? It matters little. The members of the Moon colony in England prospered through the yrs, leading honorable lives, giving of their time to the religious life of the community. During the Protestant Reformation & later, during the times of rebellion against the Church of England, the Moons were staunch Protestants & Puritans. Among the many who suffered persecution for their religious beliefs, we find a number of Moons. They were followers of George Fox, founder of the Society of Friends, members of which were called "Quakers". (The term Quaker resulted from Fox telling a magistrate he should "tremble at the word of God". Another derivation of the term says that the name came from the fervor of their religious services.) Wm Penn was imprisoned numerous times for writing & working to forward the Friends movement. On Sep 1 1682, a band of about 100 persons set sail from Deal, England on the ship "Welcome" with Wm Penn. They were bound for Penn's recently acquired province in the new land across the ocean where they could worship in freedom. They reached Newcastle on the DE River on Oct 27 1682, 1/3 fewer in number due to the ravages of smallpox on shipboard. Among those who came to the new land were James & Joan Moon & their 6 chldrn. The family settled near Falsington in Bucks Co., PA on a land grant given them by Penn. The original homesite is now said to be a freight yard near Morrisville, PA. We have the following information on the family. James Moon was b in Bristol, Eng. about 1640 & d in Jul 1713. He was m about 1665 to Joan Burgess, b 1649 & d Oct 1739. Their chldrn were Sarah, James, Jonas, Jasper (m twice & by his 1st wife had a son about 1700; by his 2nd wife he had a son, John, b about 1715), Mary & Roger. From the original home in PA descendants of James & Joan Moon have scattered far & wide. Often times the moves were prompted by pressure because of their religious beliefs, as was that first long journey to the new land. They settled in Bucks Co., PA in 1682. He lived at Fallsington, Bucks Co, PA. He was an innkeeper in Bristol, Bucks Co, PA. In 1688, he was listed as a laborer & planter. With James Jr, in 1688 he purchased about 125 acres from James Hill from a 500 acre tract Mr Hill bought from Wm Penn. He bought James Jr's portion of the land for 125 Eng. Pounds in 1701 at Pennsbury Manor, Bucks Co, PA. He transfered the title to that 125 acres to his son Roger in 1706. His will was dated 1710, in Bucks Co, PA.

[NI058598] Early in the 18th century a large number of Friends went from PA to Loudon, Fairfax & Frederick Co.s in northern VA. It is quite possible Simon & John, s/o's Jasper, were among this number, as Simon's home was in Frederick Co at the time of his death abt 1748. At an early date the colony of NC, in order to encourage immigration, offered complete religious freedom. This appealed to the Quakers & abt 1735 lg. no.s of Quakers went from northern VA & PA & located in Randolph, Guilford & Alamance Co.s in NC. John Moon settled on the Deep River in Randolph Co. Abt 1740 John Moon m Mary Farmer, who came from the Farmers of PA & their line from Northhamptonshire, England, where 1 ancestor was Lord Brewster (the line is now titled Earl of Pomfret). Records show that in 1545 Anne Farmer m William Lucy of Charles' Court & their son was knighted by Queen Ann. A Mary Farmer m Hon. Richard Byron, bro. of Lord Byron. The Farmers, like the Moons, came to Amer on the "Welcome" with Wm Penn. John & Mary Moon had 1 dau., Rachel, who m Marmaduke Bookout, & had 4 sons, John, James, Lawrence & Joseph. Religious freedom in NC was shortlived. Before the Rev War the colonial government passed a law making void all marriages performed by Quaker preachers & the offspring of such marriages illegitimate.
