More details on Nicolaus:

The first documented Kachelriess to arrive in American was Nicolaus Kachelriess. He arrived on September 27, 1737 at the Port of Philadelphia, aboard the ship "Snow Molly" which left from Amsterdam, Holland and sailed to America via Dover, England.

There were 95 "Palatine" passengers aboard the Snow Molly. (All passengers may or may not have actually been from Palatine, Germany. It was a common practice to record all passengers from one originating point, which simplified record keeping.) All male passengers over the age of 16 (there were 31) were listed by the ship's captain, John Howell. The other 64 passengers would have been females (all ages) or males 16 or under.

There were no other Kachelriess immigrants listed on this voyage; however, it is not known whether or not Nicolaus came to American alone, or with a wife and young family -- or other male relatives under 16 years of age, who would not have been recorded. (Source: Ralph Beaver Strassburger: Pennsylvania German Pioneers, Vol. I, page 173-174 )

A Nicholas Cochelrise is recorded on the 1737 Philadelphia County, PA Census, and appears to be the same Nicholas who arrived on the Snow Molly. At this point he disappears from PA -- and it seems possible that he died shortly after arriving in America, since he doesn't surface again anywhere (that I've found). To date, no documentation has been discovered that reveals the name of the father of Tabalt (Theobald or Theobold?) and Michael Cocklereece, but it is possible that Nicholas was their father.

Consider the following:

A 1754 land transaction for a Mathias Myars is the first record of Mathias Miers/Myars in NC: Granville County Deeds, Patent Book 14, page 5, (abstract 2474) transaction dated 4/26/1754; Mathias Miers purchases 400 acres in Granville County on both sides of Skelton Creek; Witnesses Jno Haywood, Sher Haywood; SCC Benford Dickens, Griffin Nunary; Wm Churton, Surveyor.

1769 Tax Census records for Granville County, NC indicate Tabolt's son (who is mentioned in Mythias Myars' March 1770 Will) indicate Mythias/Mathias was born before 1753, since only males over the age of 16 were recorded. If at least 16 when his son was born, Tabolt would have been born before 1736.
Michael is probably the elder of the two since he inherited the largest portion of Mythias Miars estate in 1770.

Based on a possible 1752 birthdate for Mythias, son of Tabolt, and because he appears to be named for Mary's second husband, Mythias/Mathias Miers/Myars, it is plausible that the father of Tabolt and Michael died before 1752. Bridging the two generations, I believe that Michael and Tabolt were probably born between 1735 and 1737.

If born in 1737, Tabalt would have been 33 at the time of Mythias Myars death in 1770, and an infant in 1737. Likewise, Michael, if born in 1735 would have been 35 in 1770, and only 2 in 1737. Both Michael and Tabalt could have been born in Amsterdam, Holland. This is important since it establishes that a connection between Nicholas, Michael and Tabalt is possible.

It appears that both of Mary Kachelriess's sons (Michael and Tabalt) COULD have arrived on the Snow Molly; however, there is a problem -- a published genealogical paper (National Genealogical Society Quarterly, September 1951) which indicates Johannes Kachelriess, who is believed to be the son of Tabolt, was born in 1760 in Holland -- 23 years after the 1737 arrival of the Snow Molly. Because of the source (NGSQ), the birth year and place are assumed to be reliable facts, but the author is dead, and the supporting documentation is unknown. Also, there are no census records that indicate John/Johannes was foreign born. I believe the reference to birthplace was actually for Michael, John's father.

In America, the name Cocklereece has been found to be an "Anglicized" version of the German surname Kachelriess (in German records of the Friedens Church in Gibsonville, NC). I've been in touch with present-day Kachelriess descendants in Germany -- who say that Kachelriess is a VERY rare German name which originates in a small area in northern Bavaria. Most Kachelriesses come from or near Unternesselbach, Mittelfranken, Bayern (Bavaria, Germany), which is northeast of Stuttgart and northwest of Nuremburg. Tthe majority of the Kachelriess records I have found at the LDS Library in SLC, (there are quite a few in the Brenner Collection) originated in this area.

Peter Zimmerman's wife Anna Bricker came to America
in 1737 aboard the ship "Charming Nancy". From the
ship's list:

Men:

BRUCKER or BRUIKER, Peter

Women:

BRUIKER, Anna

Children:

BRUIKER, Anna
BRUIKER, Barbara
BRUIKER, Hans

Anna's father was Peter Bricker, later of Heidelberg Township, Berks County. I came across a deed in the
Berks County Deeds dated 1775.

"To all People to whom these Presents shall come, Peter Desher of the Township of Bethel in the County of Lancaster in the Province of Pennsylvania, yeoman, and Barbara his wife, and Peter Zimmerman of the Township of Cocalico in the said County, yeoman, and Anna his wife (which said Barbara and Anna are the daughters of Peter Bricker, late of the Township of Heidelberg in the County of Berks in the Province aforesaid, yeoman deceased) send greeting.

Whereas Frederick Weiser by Indenture under his hand and seal bearing date the fifth day of May Anno Domini one thousand seven hundred and fifty five for the consideration therein mentioned did grant and confirm unto the said Peter Bruecker (alias Bricker) in his lifetime and to his heirs and assigns a certain Messuage tenement plantation and tract of land therewith belonging situate on a branch of Tulpehocken Creek in the Township of Heidelberg aforesaid.....containing one hundred and twenty one acres (it being part of two hundred and forty two acres which Christian Deppen and Veronica his wife and Hans Zimerman Junior and Anna his wife by indenture of the same fifth day of May in the year aforesaid did grant unto the said Frederick Weiser in fee) to hold to him the said Peter Bricker his heirs and assigns forever under the quit-rent of one red rose......The said Peter Bricker departed this life having first made his last will and testament in [????] under his Hand and Seal bearing date the thirteenth day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and sixty nine wherein and whereby (amongst other things) he did give and devise the said land and all his right in the same unto his only son Johannes Bricker...."

Now see the following will abstracts:

second wife was Elizabeth Bricker, who was
the widow of another Peter Bricker, the
Peter Bricker of Cocalico.

--She acknowledges having received sundry items devised to her by her late husband's last will & testament dated 22 Nov 1785.
--23 Mar 1792

MARRIAGE EVIDENCE:

Peter Zimmerman's last will & testament indicates that he had two wives. By his second wife Anna, Peter names one child, Peter. By his first wife (not named), Peter names three children: Elizabeth, Anna, and Barbara. Peter had married his second wife Anna by 4 June 1767 (see Deed H386).

The following indenture proves that Peter's second wife was Anna Bricker, the daughter of Peter Bricker of Heidelberg tp.:

Undocumented Berks County Deed (from a reputable source):

"To all People to whom these Presents shall come, Peter Desher of the Township of Bethel in the County of Lancaster in the Province of Pennsylvania, yeoman, and Barbara his wife, and Peter Zimmerman of the Township of Cocalico in the said County, yeoman, and Anna his wife (which said Barbara and Anna are the daughters of Peter Bricker, late of the Township of Heidelberg in the County of Berks in the Province aforesaid, yeoman deceased) send greeting.

Whereas Frederick Weiser by Indenture under his hand and seal bearing date the fifth day of May Anno Domini one thousand seven hundred and fifty five for the consideration therein mentioned did grant and confirm unto the said Peter Bruecker (alias Bricker) in his lifetime and to his heirs and assigns a certain Messuage tenement plantation and tract of land therewith belonging situate on a branch of Tulpehocken Creek in the Township of Heidelberg aforesaid.....containing one hundred and twenty one acres (it being part of two hundred and forty two acres which Christian Deppen and Veronica his wife and Hans Zimerman Junior and Anna his wife by indenture of the same fifth day of May in the year aforesaid did grant unto the said Frederick Weiser in fee) to hold to him the said Peter Bricker his heirs and assigns forever under the quit-rent of one red rose......The said Peter Bricker departed this life having first made his last will and testament in [????] under his Hand and Seal bearing date the thirteenth day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and sixty nine wherein and whereby (amongst other things) he did give and devise the said land and all his right in the same unto his only son Johannes Bricker...."

Now see the following will abstract:

BRUCKER, PETER, Heidelberg.
June 13, 1769 - May 30, 1774.

Provides for wife Anna. To only son Johannes, all my right and title to the land and he shall pay to his 2 sisters Barbara and Anna £100 each.
Exrs: wife Anna and friend Mathias NAPHZIGER. Letters to NAPHZIGER, the widow renouncing. Wit: Johannes ROOS, George GARTNER, Wilhelm CAFFROTH.

For consideration:

The following records pertains to another Peter Zimmerman; however, their proximity should be noted:

DEPPE, CHRISTIAN, Heidelberg.
September 27, 1775 - August 24, 1782. B - 39.
To eldest son Hannes £50.
To dau. Barbara, wife of Peter ZIMMERMAN £125.
To dau. Anna, wife of Geo. FEAKLEY, £125.
To dau. Freanica, £125.
To dau. Elisabeth, £125.
To my 6 sons, Hannes, Peter, David, Joseph, Jacob and Abram, the
plantation I live on in Heidelberg. Also my plantation, on which son
Peter lives. And also 50 acres in Northumberland. Also, all remainder
of estate. Exrs: sons Hannes and Joseph.
Wit: Philip MAYER, John Casper READ and Adam KALBACH.

From the Internet: Peter Zimmerman married Barbara Deppen. They moved circa 1758 to Lincoln County, North Carolina. [NOTE: This Peter Zimmerman cannot be the son of Peter Zimmerman of Cocalico tp. Peter's son Peter was born to his second wife and seemingly appears in Cocalico tax records circa 1778.]
I have viewed the above last will & testament (see the FTM file) and the wording suggests that daughter Barbara was yet alive in 1775.

LANDHOLDINGS:

Overview:

1. 639a Cocalico tp. acquired by Peter Zimmerman 12 June 1747 from his brother John Zimmerman (Deeds A159 & C89)
2. 196a Cocalico tp. war. 10 May 1749 and later surveyed & patented to the said Peter Zimmerman (Patent P3-116).
3. 100a Cocalico tp. acquired by Peter Zimmerman 27 Dec 1749 from Hans Buch (Deed C49)
4. 42a Cocalico tp. acquired by Peter Zimmerman 16 May 1753 from Hans Zimmerman (Deed D1)
5. 50a Cocalico tp. acquired by Peter Zimmerman 24 May 1754 from Michael Baughman (Deed D384)
6. 98a Cocalico tp. acquired by Peter Zimmerman 29 Mar 1760 from Peter Bricker (Deed O412)

Peter Zimmerman acquired considerable property out of the lands patented to his brother John Zimmerman. The relationship between the men is indicated in Lancaster County deeds A159 and BB-392. I have not viewed the surveys for the lands acquired by Peter Zimmerman; however, I presume that the lands are all adjoining. Due to the complexity in tracing the lands of the Zimmerman family, I have incorporated all lands acquired by Peter Zimmerman into the enumeration below.

Peter Zimmerman first acquired land from his brother John Zimmerman in 1747. Logically, John Zimmerman acquired this part of his immense land holdings for the use of his said brother, who may have been a minor until the time of conveyance. Later acquisitions by Peter Zimmerman adjoin this original property. In 1749, Peter purchased an adjoining plantation patented to Hans Buch. In the same year, Peter obtained a warrant for land eventually surveyed on the north side of his 1747 acquisition. In 1753, Peter purchased an adjoining parcel of 42 acres from his said brother John Zimmerman (see Deed D1). In 1754, Peter purchased another adjoining parcel of 50 acres from Michael Baughman (see Deed D384). The latter parcel was originally surveyed and patented to the said John Zimmerman, who lost this and other property during various legal proceedings. Peter's last known acquisition was in 1760, when he acquired 98 acres from Peter Bricker, who had acquired the residue of the said John Zimmerman's 900-acre patent land. It is possible that this last acquistion was a release in which Bricker cleared title to Peter Zimmerman (Confusion may have existed since John Zimmerman has mortgaged the entire 900-acre tract before defaulting to the said Peter Bricker.)

Taken together, Peter Zimmerman acquired nearly 1,100 adjoining acres in Cocalico tp.

Note: The tract surveyed to Peter Zimmerman in 1784 in pursuance of the 1749 land warrant was in the possession of Jacob Bear-see Deed R3-216. It is not clear why the patent was returned to Peter Zimmerman; at this time, the patent has not been consulted.

Note: The 1760 indenture between Peter Bricker and Peter Zimmerman could involve the release of land previously acquired by the said Zimmerman. If so, the acreage should be be added into Peter's landholdings.

IMPORTANT: See the section on Jacob Bear's landholdings for additional dispositions. Also, see a section on George Wohlfarth's landholdings for further dispositions of his property.

Posted by Heyl researchers:

Birth and Birthplace

The birth date 14 May 1710 traditionally attributed to Peter Heÿl of North Carolina belongs instead to Peter Heyl, son of Adam Heyl, as reported in Dr. Köerner's lineage book. The birth date and birthplace of North Carolina's pioneer Peter Hoyle have not been established. If North Carolina's Peter Heÿl was around the typical age of twenty-five years when he married Susanna Müller in 1730, then a birth year of 1705 would apply.
Marriage

Peter married at the village of Jeckenbach. "Peter Heÿl ist [is] d. 13 Junÿ [the 13th of June] mit Susanna Catharina Ulrich Müllers tochter [daughter] zu [of] Hundsback linenweaver." [5] View Jeckenbach photographs by jeckegerni60 (copyrighted).
Children

The children of Peter and Susanna Catharina (Müller) Heÿl were: [6]

Johann Jacob Heÿl born 3 June 1731, baptized 10 June 1731 [7]
Elisabetha Catharina Heÿl born 4 January 1733, baptized 9 January 1733 [8]
Maria Sara Heÿl born 19 November 1734, baptized 24 November 1734 [9]
Anna Maria Heÿl born 1 January 1736, baptized 25 January 1736 [10]
Michael Hoyle born about 1738-1740 in America; no birth record yet located
John Hoyle born 1740-1741 in America; no birth record yet located
Anna Elisabeth Heÿl baptized 3 December 1745 at Muddy Creek Congregation in Cocalico Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania [11]
unnamed daughter Heill, child of Peter Heill and wife, born 10 March 1748 recorded at Christ (Conewago) Church, near Littlestown, Union Township, York County (present-day Adams County), Pennsylvania [12]
Andrew Heil, child of Peter Heil and wife Susanna Catherine, born 29 December 1749, baptized [blank] 1750 at Christ (Conewago) Church, near Littlestown, Union Township, York County (present-day Adams County), Pennsylvania [13]

Miller of Adenbach

"1738, Peter Hel, Miller from Adenbach moves to Pennsylvania." [14] Confirmation that “Peter Hel, Miller from Adenbach” is the same man whose family settled in North Carolina is a notation by the pastor of the Hundsbach Reformed Church. The pastor added his comment at a later date in the margin of the church book beside the 1733 baptismal information for Peter’s daughter Elisabetha Catharina: “dieses Kinds Vatter ist in Pensylvaniam gezogen,” meaning this child’s father has gone to Pennsylvania. [15] For a history of the grist mill, see Adenbach Mill; in the left-hand panel, click on Litera A, scroll down to Adenbach. The history states Peter "Heÿel" acquired the mill in 1736 and disposed of it in 1738.
Reihenfolge der Müller:
- 1595 “Michel, Müller Hanßens Sohn von Adenbach”
- 1722 Johann *Riegel von Gumbsweiler
- 1722/1727 Peter *Oloffer
- 1727/1731 Johann Philipp *Maurer aus Niedersaulheim
- 1731/1736 Johannes *Schlicher, Unterschultheiß in Medard
- 1736/38 Peter *Heyel

The Evangelical Reformed Church in Kusel served the towns and villages of Adenbach, Becherback, Gangloff, Roth bei Odenback, and Ginsweiler. The Family History Library microfilmed some of the church records but dating only 1743-1793, much too late for miller Peter Heyel. As he and Susanna resided in Adenbach from 1736 to 1738, it is probable that a child was born there. On-site research in Germany might answer the question.
Immigration

Peter swore to the required immigration oaths at the courthouse in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 11 September 1738, having arrived on the ship Robert and Alice. He signed his name as Petter Heÿel; an image of his original signature is in Pennsylvania German Pioneers, vol. II: 223. [16] There is no immigration record of who arrived with Peter Hoyle; only he is recorded on the ship's passenger log and the immigration oaths.
America

Oral histories state that Peter and his family originally settled in northeast Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and that they also lived for some time in Frederick County, Maryland. [17] The Hoyles' earliest American residences have not been confirmed except for his children's baptisms in Lancaster and York counties, Pennsylvania.

After son Andrew's 1750 Pennsylvania baptism, Peter and Susanna migrated to North Carolina. They must have left Pennsylvania quite soon after Andrew's baptism as before March 1753 Peter had chosen the land he wished to settle upon. The first North Carolina record for Peter Hoyle is his 1753 entry for land in Anson County, present-day Gaston County. Peter's land grants consisted of 300 acres "on the South side of the South Fork thereof on a branch" and another of 500 acres "lying on both side of the South Fork of the Cataba River, including the mouth of Hoyle’s Creek and on both sides of the Creek for complement." Thus, the creek upon which Peter situated his homestead became known as Hoyle's Creek. The survey has not survived, but a notation on the reverse of his warrant indicates surveying was completed on 4 May 1753. His title was final on 17 May 1754. [18]
Hoyle Historic Homestead

Current research documents that the house known as Hoyle Historic Homestead was not constructed by Peter Hoyle and does not sit on land ever owned by him. [19]
1756 Militia Roster

The 1756 Militia Roster of Captain Samuel Cobrin’s Company includes Peter Hoyle listed among the married men. The correct date of the militia roster was documented in 2003 as 1756; earlier publications erroneously stated the date as 1748. [20]
Hoyle's Mill

Peter continued his profession of milling in North Carolina. The first known mention of his mill is a 1758 survey "on Hoils Run Creek, about a mile above the Mill." [21]
Death

Peter died intestate (no will) circa 1762-1763 in Anson County, North Carolina. An undated estate settlement exists for him. [22] The chronological arrangement of the records is haphazard, and no date for Peter Hoyle's death can be determined from them. The clerk drew double lines between each entry to separate them. Even so, because the entry preceding Peter's record is dated 20 January 1761, some people have misinterpreted it as applying to Peter Hoyle's death. The burial site of Peter Hoyle is unconfirmed. A memorial stone erected in 1938 repeats outdated information about his name, his parents, his wife, and children. [23]
Estate

When Peter Hoyle died, the rule of primogeniture was in effect, meaning that any land he had not willed or disposed of prior to his death was automatically inherited by his eldest surviving son. That son was Jacob Hoyle. Jacob Hoyle died an untimely death in circa 1763;[24] therefore, the land he inherited from his father Peter as well as land he acquired apart from his father went to Jacob's only surviving son Martin Hoyle. [25]
Widow Susanna Catharina (Müller) Hoyle

Mrs. Peter Hoyle (Susanna Müller) survived her husband. She attended the Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, estate sale of her son Jacob Hoyle on 2 August 1763. The estate sale account describes her as “Widow Hoil old woman” while Jacob Hoyle’s widow, Elizabeth, is referred to as “Widow Hoil” and as “Elesebeth Hoill.” [26] When Susanna (Müller) Hoyle’s grandson Martin Hoyle executed sales on 26 October 1779 of land formerly belonging to Peter Hoyle, there were no references to Susanna’s dower interest, implying her death before then. [27] When Susanna (Müller) Hoyle was born, when she died, and where she was buried is presently unknown.

Mr. Hoffman expresses some reservations about the Proctor Record, p. 400. Mr. Hoffman (1846-1934) collected oral history from about 1908 until his 1915 publication. Mr. Hoffman conscientiously analyzed the information. Another value of his publication is that some of his informants were people with first-hand knowledge. However, as was the custom of the day, Mr. Hoffman’s publication cites no sources, and, being human, he did make mistakes.

GEORGE HIBSHMAN. In the northeastern portion of Lancaster county but few family names date farther back in the settlement thereof, and none that has been connected with it is more of historic interest than the name of Hibshman, of which George Hibshman is a proud and worthy representative; proud in knowing that his ancestors served the State and nation prominently and ably in both civil and military capacities in the early days of our country's history.

John Gerhard Hibshman, the founder of the family in America, was a native of Switzerland, and left the land of his birth in 1732, at the age of nineteen. Five years afterward he returned to his native land for his wife, returning with her to America Sept. 24, 1737, in the ship "Saint Andrew," which sailed on that date from Rotterdam, Holland, bound for New York. Upon landing in the New World, where he was to make for himself and family a home, he came to Lancaster county, and, allured by the natural beauty of the country and the richness of the soil, he purchased the tract of land which is now the farm of Israel Miller, four miles north of the borough of Ephrata, and thereon made his home. He and his wife were blessed with four children, viz.: Wendel is mentioned below; Henry married and moved to Lebanon county, Pa.; Catharine married an Albrecht, and moved to Selins Grove, Pa.; Elizabeth married Conrad Mentzer.

Wendel Hibshman became the owner of the farm upon the death of his father. He married Hannah, daughter of John and Elizabeth Heffley, who were also among the early settlers of Ephrata township. The farm owned by John Heffley passed to his daughter, Mrs. Hibshman, and from her to her son Jacob, through whose son John it descended to George. To Wendel and Hannah Hibshman were borne five children, viz.: Jacob, Henry, John, Hannah and Mary. Wendel Hibshmann was a man of marked ability, and naturally became a leader among the people of eastern Pennsylvania. On the breaking out of the Revolutionary war he espoused the cause of the Colonies, and as major of the 3d Battalion of Pennsylvania troops did good service in the war which ended in the formation of the Republic. After his marriage he became the owner of the farm which had belonged to his wife's family, but on the farm he first bought he passed the remainder of his days, an honored and influential citizen of the commonwealth whose soldiers he had commanded in the struggle for independence. He and his wife were both interred in the family burying-ground on the home farm.

Jacob Hibshman, eldest son of Wendel, became a man of prominence, and added luster to the family name. At an early age he entered the field of politics as a Jeffersonian Democrat, and for years wielded an influence second to none in his part of the State. He was a scrivener, and for many years a justice of the peace. He was a distinguished member of the XVIth Congress, having defeated James Buchanan, afterward President of the United States, in the Congressional election of 1820. At one period he was surveyor general of his district, which was composed of the counties of Lancaster, York and Dauphin, and was twelve years associate judge of the Lancaster county court. In 1824, when Gen. LaFayette visited the United States, Mr. Hibshman, then a member of Congress, was chairman of the committee appointed by the citizens of Lancaster county to receive and entertain him, and had the honor of introducing the distinguished Frenchman to the people who met to do him honor. Mr. Hibshman was also prominent in the military affairs of his State, and reached the rank of brigadier general. He married Miss Elizabeth Atkinson, daughter of Thomas and Saloma Atkinson, who bore him the following children: Polly, Lydia, Edward, Jacob, Elizabeth, Amelia and John. Jacob Hibshman inherited the home farm which is now owned by his grandson, George Hibshman, and on which he died May 19, 1852. He was a man of noble qualities and upright character, and passed away honored and esteemed by a wide circle of friends and fellow citizens. His wife's death took place May 4, 1811, and both sleep their last sleep in the Hibshman family burying-ground.

Henry Hibshman, a younger son of Wendel Hibshman, was also a man of prominence in his day and generation., and held offices of honor and trust in his native State, the most important of which was that of member of the State Legislature. Like his brother, Jacob, he took an active interest in the State militia for many years, and retired from its service with the rank of general. He married Miss Catharina Miller, who bore him two children: Wendel and Elmira. For his second wife he married Hanna Sweitzer, and their children were Lewis Harrison and Mary.

John Hibshman, son of Gen. Jacob, and father of George, was born on the home farm March 7, 1807, and grew to manhood there. His education, like that of all farmers' sons of the time, was obtained in the district school of his neighborhood, and was deemed sufficient to fit him for the avocation marked out for him, that of tiller of the soil, which he followed and honored through a long and well spent life. In time he became the owner of the Hibshman homestead, which he successfully managed, and which at his death, Oct. 14, 1871, became by purchase the property of his son George. In early life he was a Whig in political belief, and when the Republican party sprang into life under the oaks near the city of Jackson, Mich., he became, and until his death remained, a stanch member thereof. But although he was always active in the support of his party and its principles, he was not an office seeker, but was content to be a private in its ranks. In March, 1838, Mr. Hibshman was joined in marriage to Miss Magdalena Shirk, who was born Aug. 4, 1813, daughter of John and Annie (Eberly) Shirk, residents of West Cocalico township, where they were well-to-do and prominent agriculturists. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Shirk were Magdalena, Leah and Michael. Mrs. Hibshman passed from earth June 18, 1898, at the ripe old age of eighty-five years. To Mr. and Mrs. John Hibshman were born eight children, as follows: Annie, deceased; Elizabeth, wife of Dr. D. Rhine Hertz, of Ephrata; Jacob, deceased; John (deceased), who married Hannah Boyer, and had five children, all of whom died in infancy except Harry, the present cashier of the Ephrata National Bank; Henry, deceased; Isaac, deceased; George, mentioned below; and Amelia, who married J. Craig, of Chester, Pa. In the family cemetery on the farm where he was born, and where all his life was spent, John Hibshman and his wife Magdalena are sleeping the sleep that knows no waking until the dawn of the resurrection morning.

George Hibshman, like his father and grandfather before him, was born on the farm of his ancestors, which is now his own. Like them, he grew to manhood thereon, and obtained his education in the district schools, and he too selected as his vocation the life of a farmer, having been content to till in an intelligent and successful way the beautiful farm any man might be proud to own. Year by year he adds to his wealth, and the beauty and comforts of his surroundings, thus setting an example some of the sons of his farmer neighbors will surely follow. In
politics he is a Republican, and one as to whose position there is never any questioning, and who sees no shame in being called stalwart. He is active in the interests of his party, but has no time to seek and no desire to hold public office. He is a member of the Republican township committee, and was a delegate to the Republican State convention held in Harrisburg in June, 1902.

On Dec. 3, 1874, Mr. Hibshman married Miss Mary Kratz, who was born Oct. 18, 1852, daughter of David and Mary (Bear) Kratz. Their union has been blessed with two children: Alice, born Sept. 16, 1884, who died June 27, 1897; and Edward, born
Sept. 9, 1887.

David and Mary (Bear) Kratz were natives of Bucks county and Bareville, Leacock township, Lancaster county, respectively. Mr. Kratz was born Aug. 12, 1824, and died June 27, 1892. Mrs. Kratz was born July 27, 1829, and resides in Ephrata, in the home which has been hers for thirty-five years.

The signatures on this marriage affidavit are a roster of Johannes Schwab's relatives and friends. Hans Georg Schwob was his brother; Eved Rim (Eberhardt Riehm) and probably Johan Heinrich Klein, his brothers-in-law, husbands of his sisters; Elisabeth Rimen, Annamaria Meixelin, and probably Anna Margaretha Kleinin, his sisters; Andreas Meixel, his nephew; Johannes Lein the elder, his father-in-law (father of his first wife, Anna Dorothea); Johannes Lein, his first wife's father); Johannes Lein, his first wife's brother; Catharina Zimmermaennin was the wife of Emanuel Carpenter/Zimmerman (he had changed his name to the anglicized form Carpenter). Conradt Templemann was the lay preacher of the Reformed Church, but being unordained he could not marry them. Michael Weidler and John Lein represented the ,,Berg Church" (Hill Church or Conestoga Church), now called Salem or Heller's Reformed Church, at the meeting of the Coetus of Pennsylvania. John Lein's daughter, Barbara, was the wife of Johan Jacob Weidler. They were still living in Germany in 1746, but her husband may very well have been a relative of Michael Weidler. The only ones not identified as part of the family are Ludwig Franciscus, Johan Michael Kraemer, Conrad and Elisabeth Feit, and Johannes Greff.
Where were the relatives of Catharina Elisabeth Greve? Was Johannes Greff (better known as Hans Graeff, the noted Indian trader) her father - her surname ,,Greve" a corruption of the German ,,Graeff?" Her broken tombstone in Heller's churchyard states she was born 22 October 1715. She bore Johannes Schwab nine children, five daughters and four sons. She died before her husband on the fourteenth of August 1776 (FGS p. 1361).

Analysis:
Adam Beam apparently acquired and patented his father's lands. As brother Peter resided in Robeson tp. all Beams taxed in the 1780's must be Adam's children. In the late 1780's, Adam appears to have devised parcels of his lands to sons John & Peter. It is unknown what happened to son Adam.

344 - Thompson McAllister, born Aug. 30, 181 1, at the old homestead in
Lost Creek Valley, Juniata County, Pa.; died March 13, 1871 at "Rose
Dale" Covington, Va. Married on Feb. 14, 1839, Lydia Miller Addams
(born Feb. 11, 1819, at Millerstown, Pa.; died Feb. 3, 1902 at "Rose
Dale") daughter of Abraham and Lydia (Miller) Addams of Millers-
town, Perry County, Pa. - see pamphlet on "Eightieth Anniversary of
Lydia Miller (Addams) McAllister" and "In Memorian- Lydia Miller
(Addams) McAllister," by j. Gray McAllister. The ancestor of the
present America family of Addams (name originally spelled Adams)
came to this country from England about 200 years ago and acquired
ownership of land in Pennsylvania. The records show that on Dec.
22, 1681, William Penn deeded 500 acres in the Province of Pennsyl-
vania to "Robert Adams of Ledwell in Oxfordshire, England." (The

BRANCH NO. 3 1 15

name was spelled Addams on the map of the territory*.) The will of
Robert Adams, dated July 2-], 1717 and probated June 6, 1719 refers
to his nephew Richard Adams. Richard Adams was a son of John
Adams, who was living in 1717. In the will of Richard Adams of
what was then Philadelphia County, but is now Montgomery County,
Pa., dated Feb. i, 1747-8, and probated March 24, 1747-8, mention
was made of ten children including William, who was referred to
in the papers of the executors as of Brecknock Township, Lancaster
County, Pa. This son William Adams founded Adamstown in Lancas-
ter County, Pa., in 1761. He married Anna Lane, a daughter of Ed-
ward and Ann (Richardson) Lane. Edward Lane was an Englishman
who came from Jamaica in 1684 and purchased on Dec. 12, 1698-9, 25,-
000 acres from Thomas Fairman which was confirmed to him by patent
in 1 701 by William Pcnn. When he died in 1710, leaving seven children
including William and Ann - not then married - his son William be-
came owner of that part of the property lying east of the Perkiomen,
218 acres of which he deeded to Richard Adams on Feb. 9, 1722. The
youngest son of William and Anna (Lane) Adams was Issac Addams
(the additional having been reinserted, it is said, to distinguish him
from a cousin of the same name), who married Barbara Ruth, daugh-
ter of Peter (died Sept., 1771) and Catherine Ruth, of German an-
cestry. Isaac Addams was captain of the Fourth Company of Asso-
ciators in the Ninth Battalion under Col. John Huber. The youngest
of the six sons of Isaac and Barbara (Ruth) Addams was Abraham
Addams. As a young man he was a merchant in Reading, Pa. He
moved, about 181 1, to Perry County, Pa., and bought the land on
which Millcrstown is built. He was a member of one of the most
important courts of the State. He was thrice married. First, to Lydia,
daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth (Feather) Miller, of Reading. Eliza-
beth Feather was the daughter of Peter and Marie (Levan) Feather,
granddaughter of Isaac and Mary Margaret Levan and great-grand-
daughter of Daniel and Marie (Beau) Levan, Huguenots who fled from
France to Amsterdam, Holland, and subsequently, in 1715, came to
America and settled in Exeter Township, Berks County, Pa. See "The
Addams Family in America," "The Ruth Family" and "The Levan
Family," by Addams S. McAllister. After his marriage to Lydia M.
Addams, Thompson McAllister moved to the farm "Spring Dale," in
Franklin County, Pa., seven miles from Chambersburg, later deeded to
him by his father. He was elected member of the Pennsylvania Legis-
lature in 1847. He moved to Covington, Va., in Dec, 1849 having pur-
chased a 2,200-acre tract and built "Rosedale" the Virginia homestead
in 1856-7. He and his younger brother Robert - 345 - spent much time
together "studying military tactics, were always connected with military
companies, and were both fond of drilling." Thompson formed, and
was made captain of an artillery company near the homestead in Juni-
ata County, and after removal to Franklin County was (in 1846) cap-
tain of an artillery company there. At the outbreak of the Civil War

The Descendants of Ulrich Staley, Lebanon,Lancaster, Allegheny Co.

They had to get permission from Canton Berne, Switzerland to baptize her, they speak of Ulrich Stehli, A SWISS MAN FROM CANTON BERNE, SWITZERLAND. ALSO THE MARRIAGE OF JACOB STEHLI AND ANNA ZUITOR 1697, PARENTS OF ULRICH, IN SWITZERLAND.

.A12 Magdalena NEFF was born about 1714 in Dühren, Germany. Magdalena died December 1793 in Lancaster Co., PA, Strasburg Twp. She married (1) Samuel MILLER 17 October 1733. He was born 21 January 1711, the son of Jacob MILLER . Samuel died 4 November 1739. Magdalena married (2) John SCHANTZ after 1740. He was born about 1710 and died 1776. The executor of her will was her brother Jacob Neff. In her will, Magdalena left all her property to her brother Jacob Neff, her sister Catherine Kendig and the four children of her deceased sister Elizabeth (Mrs. Martin) Kendig, named as Martin, Elizabeth, David and Francis. Note: A15 Esther’s two sons are not listed here but then neither are the children her brother Henry (A13) nor her sister Margaret (A14). Magdalena married in 1733 no doubt raised her brother Jacob and sisters Catherine and Elizabeth after their mother died in the 1730s and their father died in 1739. This is no doubt the reason that they were her heirs.

Dear BA,

I am extremely interested in your message regarding George Eby. According
to my records, this is the George Eby(2), who was completely missed by Ezra
E. Eby in his "The History of the Eby Family", published first in 1889. In
"the Eby Reports", published in the 1970's Groff and Newman had this to say:

However before I copy into this message I would like to say that Barbara
Neff as wife of George Eby(2) has a question mark after it to show they
weren't sure. This would certainly be a new find for the Eby family.

I know that Heinz (our European Correspondent) will be very interested in
this as well and I hope he will comment as well.

>From Groff and Newman - "George Eby(2) was probably born about the year
1694, in Emmenthal, Berne, Switzerland. His records here begin in 1724,
when he is mentioned on the 1724-1725 assessment for Conestoga Township,
along with is father Durst Eby(1), and his brothers John and Peter. He was
surely living at home at the time of his father's death in 1727, and
remained there until about 1732.

There is no doubt that he, as the rest of his brothers, was engaged in the
milling trade, and since John Eby(2) and Peter Eby(2) , were operating a
mill in Earl Township he decided to build his mill some distance away. He
chose a place at the junction of Cocalico and Hammer Creeks which is today
known as the village of Millway. We have read that his milling operation
was underway by the year 1739.

According to family legend his wife was Barbara Neff and because of the
many Neffs who were involved in his OCR's this is quite possible. His
family was quite small by Eby standards since he passed away on April 27,
1743, we are not sure where he was buried. Intestate records for George
Abie(2), start at the Orphans Court on 23 June 1743 and continue until the
1760's.

On Oct. 16, 1760, his son Christian Eby(3), received the land patent his
father George Eby(2) had applied for. This patent was recorded in Deed
RR-373. The court then ruled that his eldest son Christian was to hold the
land and pay the other children, George Eby(3), John Eby(3), Barbara
Eby(3), for their shares and also mother Barbara, who remarried to George
Rodt (Roth and later presumably changed to Redland)

It seems remarkable to us that so many Eby historians completely missed
George Eby(2), as a son of Durst Eby(1), when he and his heirs have
generated so many documents to substantiate his existence. Ezra Eby and
many other early historians do not even make a single mention of George
Eby(2). Yet these very same historians seem to have written in great
length on a David Eby who was supposed to be a son of Durst Eby(1). We
have never found one single document to prove his existence.

The line of George Eby(2), as assembled and contained in this volume is our
first attempt to give a listing of his descendants. It is strictly a
preliminary listing, and may contain many inaccuracies and errors, but it
is our best effort. While it is still a first try, it is based on primary
documentation and so we do not think to too far from the truth. Our major
change in this outline is for Johannes Eby(3), son of George Eby(2). We
now have a totally different family outline for him and the children we
list for him, we have now placed those formerly attributed to him under A2
Jacob Eby(3), in the family of JB4 Andreas Eby(2) - Groff Volume II/1

The first two generations in my database has the following:

Patent AA-1-104: 150a Warwick tp. pat. 16 Oct 1760 to Christian Eby.
In pursuance of a warrant dated 8 Jan 1733, George Eby had surveyed 150a Warwick tp. (survey dated 24 Jan 1733). Description: By vacant land and land of Abraham Wolf, by land of Henry Landus, by vacant land, by land of Christian Stoner, and along a branch of the Conestoga Creek. The said George Eby erected a mill and made diverse improvements. Thereafter, he died intestate, leaving a widow named Barbara (now wife of George Rodt) and the following children: Christian Eby, George Eby, John Eby, and Barbara Eby. The Orphans Court later confirmed the above-described tract to son Christian Eby, the patentee hereto. At the time of confirmation, one Christian Myley was the g uardian of the other three children, who were yet minors.
