[NI068531] George Armstrong Custer (1839-1876). Flamboyant in life, George Armstrong Custer has remained one of best-kwn figures in Amer history & popular mythology long after his death at the hands of Lakota & Cheyenne warriors at Battle of Little Bighorn. Custer was b New Rumley, OH & spent much of his childhood with halfsis in Monroe, MI. Immediately after HS he enrolled in West Point, where he utterly failed to distinguish himself in any positive way. Several days after graduating last in his class, he failed in his duty as officer of the guard to stop a fight between 2 cadets. He was courtmartialed & saved from punishment only by the huge need for officers with the outbreak of Civil War. Custer did unexpectedly well in Civil War. He fought in 1st Battle of Bull Run & serv with panache & distinction in VA & Gettysburg campaigns. Although his units suffered enormously high casualty rates, even by standards of the bloody Civil War, his fearless aggression in battle earned him respect of his commanding generals & increasingly put him in public eye. His cavalry units played a critical role in forcing retreat of Confederate Gen Robert E Lee's forces; in gratitude, Gen Philip Sheridan purchased & made a gift of Appomatox surrender table to Custer & his wife Elizabeth Bacon Custer. In Jul 1866 Custer was appointed Lt-Col of 7th Cavalry. The next yr he led cavalry in muddled campaign against Southern Cheyenne. In late 1867 Custer was courtmartialed & suspended from duty for a yr for being absent from duty during the campaign. Custer maintained that he was simply being made a scapegoat for a failed campaign, & his old friend Gen Phil Sheridan agreed, calling Custer back to duty in 1868. In the eyes of the army, Custer redeemed himself by his Nov 1868 attack on Black Kettle's band on the banks of Washita River. Custer was sent to Northern Plains in 1873, where he soon participated in a few sm skirmishes with the Lakota in Yellowstone area. The following yr, he lead a 1,200 person expedition to Black Hills, whose possession the US had guaranteed the Lakota just 6y before. In 1876, Custer was scheduled to lead part of the anti-Lakota expedition, along with Gens John Gibbon & George Crook. He almost didn't make it, however, because his Mar testimony abt Indian Serv corruption so infuriated Pres Ulysses S Grant that he relieved Custer of his command & replaced him with Gen Alfred Terry. Popular disgust, however, forced Grant to reverse his decision. Custer went West to meet his destiny. The original US plan for defeating the Lakota called for the 3 forces under command of Crook, Gibbon, & Custer to trap the bulk of the Lakota & Cheyenne population between them & deal them a crushing defeat. Custer, however, advanced much more quickly than he had been ordered to do, & neared what he thought was a lg Indian village on the morning of Jun 25 1876. Custer's rapid advance had put him far ahead of Gibbon's slower-moving infantry brigades, & unbeknownst to him, Gen Crook's forces had been turned back by Crazy Horse & his band at Rosebud Creek. On the verge of what seemed to him a certain & glorious victory for both the US & himself, Custer ordered an immediate attack on the Indian village. Contemptuous of Indian military prowess, he split his forces into 3 pts to ensure that fewer Indians would escape. The attack was one the greatest fiascos of the US Army, as thousands of Lakota, Cheyenne & Arapaho warriors forced Custer's unit back onto a long, dusty ridge parallel to Little Bighorn, surrounded them, & killed all 210 of them. Custer's blunders cost him his life but gained him everlasting fame. His defeat at the Little Bighorn made the life of what would have been an obscure 19th century military figure into the subject of countless songs, books & paintings. His widow, Elizabeth Bacon Custer, did what she could to further his reputation, writing laudatory accounts of his life that portrayed him as not only a military genius but also a refined & cultivated man, a patron of the arts, & a budding statesman. Countless paintings of "Custer's Last Stand" were made, including 1 mass-distributed by Anheuser-Busch brewing co. All of these paintings, as did the misnomer "the Custer massacre", depicted Custer as a gallant victim, surrounded by bloodthirsty savages intent upon his annihilation. Forgotten were the facts that he had started the battle by attacking the Indian village, & that most of Indians present were forced to surrender within a yr of their greatest battlefield triumph.

[NI068540] William Cain & Shirley Evans wrote a bk " Descs of Nicholas Cain 1736- 1986" which stated that in beginnings of PA, of Mennonite migration, which is generally accepted as founding of Germantown by Krefield Pioneers of 1683. After 13 original families settled, additional immigrants arrived. Arnold was 15 when he came to US with parents. In 1702, Arnold was asked to be a Committeeman of Germantown, but declined because of his religious objection to taking required oath in Court. A log ch was built between 1703 & 1708 for Mennonites & Arnold was among membs. In 1702, Arnold appears on a list of having sent his chldn to a school in germantown called the Friends school taught by Francie Daniel Pastorius. He remained in Germantown until 1714 & then moved to Western part of Philadelphia Co. when he bought 316 acs in Manatawny tract, New Hanover Twp. The ch records contain an entry of attendance at communion of Arnold & Hermanus Kuster, under date May 23 1708. Arnold Custer is a witness to the will of his father, Paulus, in Will Bk C, no 58, p. 72 Register of wills Office, Philadelphia Co. Courthouse, Philadelphia, PA.

[NI069494] Daniel Lepley, Sr. Daniel Lepley b Aug 12 1799 & d Mar 7 1892 in 93rd yr of his age. The childhood, youth, & manhood, of gfather Lepley, were spent in his native Twp - Southampton, in the Co. of Somerset. He was a farmer by occupation, but also serv in other capacities. For a no. of yrs he was Justice of Peace in Southampton; afterwards he was elected to the office of Co. commissioner & serv for 1 term. At abt age 50 he moved to Greenville, now Larimer Twp, on a farm previously bought by him. Here he built a sawmill, & afterwards a gristmill & a plaining mill. The plaining mill was the 1st mill of the kind in this Co. In his early manhood he m Elizabeth Boal, also of Southampton Twp. 10 chldn were the result of this m - 3 sons & 7 daugs. 1 son, Adam C. Lepley, at whose residence he spent the latter yrs of his life, & 5 daugs still survive him. Their gchldn at the time of his death no.ed 80, & ggchldn, 74. His wife d in 1874, having seen all her chldn except 1, attain to manhood & womanhood. Several yrs later he m Elizabeth Hoofmier (Wilhelm). Death soon entered the union again & claimed his 2nd wife. Thus he was left to finish his "earthly pilgrimage", as it were, alone. Gfather Lepley was a memb of Luth ch. During the vigor of his manhood he regularly attended the servs of his adopted denomination. A Christian spirit characterized his dealings with his fellow men. The poor found him a Friend in need. I believe that it can be truly said of him. He was an honest man, & an honest man is said to be the noblest work of God. Whilst Mr. Lepley was not without fault (being a man), we know he had many good qualities. Differing in some of his convictions with those of his fellow beings, we still know that he loved the truth & those things which help to ennoble & elevate humanity. During his retired life, while his mind was still unimpaired, it seemed his chief delight to be surrounded by his gchldn. A no. of these were greatly aided in their early educ by his intelligent instruction. Both his mind & body were impaired during the latter yrs of his life & he became a child again. Very little bodily suffering, however fell to his lot. During the last mos of his earthly sojourn he was confined to his bed most of the time, growing weaker from day to day, until death came & called him away. Followed by a large no. of Friends & relatives his remains were laid to rest in the Mt. Carmel Cem, by the side of those of his 1st wife. May his ashes rest in peace. The funeral took place Mar 9th, 1892
