SPARR FAMILY.

Christian Sparr came from Germany about the year 1700, as near as can be
ascertained. Of the number of his family we know nothing, except one son,
Frederick, who was born in Chester county, Pennsylvania, and reared a family
of seven children; Christian, born November 6, 1752; Catharine, born October
17, 1755; John, born August 30, 1758; Susan, born November 3, 1760;
Frederick, born May 15, 1764; Margaret, born October 14, 1766; and George,
born June 18, 1770. The above record was taken from a German Lutheran Bible,
printed by John Andrew Endress, 1770, Newenberg, Kingdom of Bavaria, which
has been handed down from one generation to another, and is in the possession
of Christian D. Sparr, of Williamsburg, at the present time. George and
Frederick located in Virginia, John remained in Chester county, and we are
unable to give any record of the three daughters.
Christian Sparr, son of Frederick Sparr, became a wagon-maker by trade,
which occupation he followed for a number of years, and then turned his
attention to farming. He was married to Mary Sifert, near Reading, Lancaster
comity, about 1782, and afterward moved to Foutz's Valley, in Perry county,
where they remained a few years, and then went to the vicinity of Boalsburg,
Centre county, about the year 1815. Three years later, in 1818, they came to
the vicinity of what was then Akestown, Huntingdon county, now Williamsburg,
Blair county. Here he purchased from Adam Smith what is now known as the J.
D. Hick farm, where he remained during life. His family consisted of seven
children, five sons and two daughters: John, born, October 18, 1783, died
November 16, 1853; Elizabeth, October 18, 1783, died August 8, 1824; Jacob,
December 23, 1785, died November 26, 1877; Isaac, December 1, 1788, died July
8, 1847; Samuel, May 9, 1792, died March 14, 1867; David, September 13, 1795,
died March 5, 1857; Margaret, October 27, 1797, died May 15, 1832.
John Sparr, son of Christian Sparr, became a wagon-maker by trade, which
occupation he followed a number of years, and then turned his attention to
farming. He was married to Sarah Foutz, and reared a family of five
children: Mary, Elizabeth, Isaac, Lewis, and John, all of whom are dead at

Ellen is dead, and Catharine lives in Boalsburg, Centre county, with her two
daughters, Florence and Sallie Riley. Rachel lives at State College, Centre
county, with her husband, Charles Shaffer, and family, two sons and three
daughters, all grown to maturity.

Sarah, and Samuel, all of whom, to the best of tile writer's knowledge, are
dead.

David, Peggy, Margaret, Susanah, and Nancy, who lived to maturity, the other
five having died while in infancy. Elizabeth, married David Reed, and of
their children only one is living, Sarah, who resides with her two aunts on
her grandfather's homestead. David married Mary Jones, of Philadelphia, and
after her death, Mrs. Rebecca Myers, and lives at Boalsburg. He had no
children by either marriage. Peggy and Nancy live on the old homestead, pear
Boalsburg, aged seventy-four and sixty-two years, respectively.
Isaac Sparr succeeded his father as a farmer on the homestead, where he spent
his life. He married Mrs. Eliza Hart about 1845, and to them was born one
child, Anna Mary, who married J. D. Hicks, and at death left two children,
Hattie and William B., who are the present owners of the old Sparr homestead
of four generations ago.

This race of people has generally chosen the Lutheran faith, are republican
in politics, and being of German descent, were naturally inclined to be
farmers, and dealers in the finest draft horses of their time, and in this
their superior judgment has always been commented on.

Johann Frederick Spahr (Maria Catrina Kauffman3, Anna Maria Buehler2, Agatha Marie1) was born 1 SEP 1725 in Waldenburg, Neckar-Wuerttemburg, Germany, and died 1787 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

Descendant Register, Generation No. 5

5. Maria Margaretha Spahr (Johann Frederick Spahr4, Maria Catrina Kauffman3, Anna Maria Buehler2, Agatha Marie1) was born 14 OCT 1766 in Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and died 4 JUN 1841 in Port Royal, Juniata County, Pennsylvania. She was buried in Old Hill Cemetery, Port Royal, Juniata County, Pennsylvania. She married Johannes Zulauf 28 MAR 1783 in Spies Church, Alsace Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, son of Walter Zulauf. He was born 1753 in Elberfeld, Germany, and died 23 MAY 1838 in Milford Township, Juniata County, Pennsylvania.

Child of Maria Margaretha Spahr and Johannes Zulauf is:
+ 6 i. David Zulauf was born 15 NOV 1799 in Newberry Township, York County, Pennsylvania, and died 19 MAR 1875 in Milford Township, Juniata County, Pennsylvania.

For over a year Johannes Zulauf was classified as a POW in Reading, during which time he and three other men served as attendants to the two Minnegerode Company officers, Captain Wiederhold and Lieutenant Breide. As officers' attendants, they would have been in the private employ of the officers, would essentially have been civilians with a pseudo-military status, and would not have worn military uniforms. Johannes' duty with these officers ended when the officers were exchanged and returned to New York Island (Manhattan) in November 1780, at which time Johannes remained in Reading. Between that time and 1783 his name appears on a few Hessian rosters with the consistent notation, "POW, Location unknown." His name does not appear on the rosters drawn up in the Summer of 1783 in preparation for return of the Hessians to their homeland.

Pastoral records explain what Johannes was doing instead of answering the musters that rounded up Hessian POWs for return to their homeland. Johannes' marriage record, written by Reformed Pastor William Boos and dated 28 March 1783 (pastoral acts book preserved in Reformed Church Archives, Schaff Library, Lancaster, Pa.), states Johannes was then a resident of Brecknock Twp., which lies adjacent to Robeson Twp. in Berks Co. His wife was Maria Margaretha Spahr, daughter of Johann Frederick and Anna Margaretha (Schnaeder) Spahr. The Spahrs were residents of Robeson Twp. according to tax records. Johannes' wife went by her middle name, Margaret. Her Spahr ancestry has been traced back to the late 15th C. in Germany and Switzerland. Tax records for 1783 and 1784 show Johannes was a farmer in Robeson Twp., Berks Co. On these records his name is spelled "John Sulouf," the earliest known deviation from the earlier surname spellings, Zulauf and Zulauff.

Johannes and his wife had at least a son, Jacob, and a daughter, Mary, born in Berks Co. before the family moved west across the Susquehanna River to northern York Co., Pa. in late 1791. A 1792 deed (preserved in Pennsylvania Archives, Harrisburg Pa.) shows that 142 acres in Newberry Twp., York Co., had been conveyed to Johannes on 11 March 1791. Since ownership of this acreage was transferred from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we presume Johannes built the 2-story log house situated on the property. The house is still in use at 471 Ironstone Road, which now lies in Fairview Twp., York Co. The old log house now serves as the front portion of a frame building that triples the size of the original residence. The 1798 federal 'glass' tax return listed the Zulauf house at this location as 18'x15' and the barn as 31'x20'. This listing in the 1798 federal 'glass' tax appears to indicate that the house had glass panes in the windows rather than the translucent window coverings of vellum or oiled paper which, at that date, were more frequently used for homes built in that area. The 1800 census shows Johannes with wife, five boys, and four girls in the Zulauf household at this location.

Melchor Segner, 1781-1789+, 100A [inmate '85+]

1767: Berks County Tax Lists:
Brecknock Twp.: John Thomas Segner, blacksmith,

Note: It appears the land went from father Thomas, to son Melchior, to brother Thomas.

QUESTION: Did Thomas, the father, die circa 1781? His son Melchor's marriage record identifies him as deceased. If so, the Thomas Segner whose LWT was proven in 1794 is his son. Must verify that two Thomas Segner's existed.

The surname appears as Sechler, Segner, or Sigler--there may be other combinations starting with Z.

Dauphin Deed H1-161: George Becker, yeoman, & his wife Anna Mary of Heidelberg Township in Dauphin County rel.to John Royer & his wife Catharina
--Their right & title to 209A, 131P Heidelberg Township, it being one moiety of four contiguous tracts: HISTORY: On 30 July 1741, David Levenstein, the elder, obtained a patent dated 30 July 1741 for 130A Heidelberg Township, adjoining George Knap, Michael Bright, Jacob Becker, and Andrew Ellick (Ref. Patent A-9-346). By another patent dated 16 Aug 1763, the said David Levenstein obtained right to three contiguous tracts or parcels of land situate in Heidelberg Township described as follows: (1.) 30A Heidelberg tp., adjoining vacant land and David Levenstein’s other land; (2.) 28.40A Heidelberg tp., adjoining vacant land and Andrew Illick; and (3.) 21A, 90P Heidelberg tp., adjoining David Levenstein’s other land and George Miller [Ref.

Thereafter, the said Elizabeth Miller died without children or any issue. Whereupon and by reason and means whereof the above described four contiguous tracts descended to her two sisters, to wit: the above-named Anna Mary Becker and Catharine, the wife of John Royer.
Frederick Miller has since sold his estate, title, and interest in the four contiguous tracts to the said John Royer. On equal date herewith, the said John Royer & his wife Catharine granted 135A Heidelberg Township (part of the aforesaid tracts) to George Becker, the first party hereto. [Additional details follow.]

David Musselman Family of Hempfield tp.

Hempfield tp. tax records:
David Musselman, 1751-1763, 200A
David Musselman, 1770-1783, 250A
Christian Musselman, 1773-1777 (freeman '73-75; junior '76; listed twice '76) [see Deed R394; later presumed to be in Warwick, then Manor]

ANALYSIS: David Musselman of Hempfield tp. received his father's plantation (see Christian Musselman's last will & testament dated 29 June 1734). David was not taxed in 1726; therefore, one might presume his date of birth circa 1706-1713. Deed Z415 states that David Musselman died intestate leaving two sons, David & Christian. Deed U134, in which Christian releases his right & title unto his said brother, confirms only two heirs. There is no reason to suppose any other children.
Curiously, David, Sr., does not appear in intestate records or the intestate index. He signed a 1766 release for his brother Peter's land (see Deed M3-542); however, he does not appear in 1769 tax records. A death circa 1767-1768 is presumed. Both of David's children can be followed definitively in deed records. Son David is included in the analysis below. See Christian Musselman of Manor tp. for the other child.
David Musselman moved to Bedford (now Huntingdon) County circa 1784. He was murdered by a robber in January 1787 while traveling between Camp Hill and Carlisle. See Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage, January 1789, p. 21, for proof of migration and death. The researcher indicates that estate records prove David's migration, marriage, and murder.

DIDIER MARCHAL

« Diderich Marchal, 29 ans » :

Un bon candidat serait en théorie Didier Marchal, né le 5 12 1706 à Waldersbach de Marchal Jean-Jacques et Bernard Marie-Salomé ; pas d'acte de décès au Ban de la Roche ; x Sara Banzet le 9 9 1732 à Waldersbach .

Cependant, j'hésite fortement à faire, du Didier Marchal du Ban de la Roche, le Diderich Marchal de la Princess Augusta. En effet, un Bandelarochois est en principe protestant. Or, nous trouverons des Marchal en Amérique à Pigeon Hill, dans ce qui est en principe une colonie catholique. Mystère, mystère …

Cependant, à toutes fins utiles, j'indique ci-dessous l'ascendance du Didier Marchal du Ban de la Roche :

Généalogie de Didier Marchal : 1 Marchal Didier ; 2 Marchal Jean-Jacques ; 3 Bernard Marie-Salomé ; 4 Marchal Dimanche ; 5 Loux Dimanchette (Mougeotte) ; 6 Bernard Didier ; 7 Caquelin Catherine ; 8 Marchal Nicolas ; 9 Steff Odile ; 10 Loux Nicolas ; 11 Christmann Christine ; 12 Bernard Jean ; 13 Millan Catherine ; 14 Caquelin Didier ; 15 Vonier Marguerite ; 16 ? ; 17 ? 18 Steff Etienne ; 19 Charpentier Catherine ; 20 ; 21 ; 22 ? ; 23 ? ; 24 Bernard Dimanche ; 25 ? ; 26 Millan Nicolas ? ; 27 ? ; 28 Caquelin Nicolas
Généalogie de Sara Banzet : : 1 Banzet Sara ; 2 Banzet Jean ; 3 Verly Anne-Marie ; 4 Banzet Christophe ; 5 Neuviller Jeanne ; 6 Verly David ; 7 Becker Barbe ; 8 Banzet Jandon (Jean) ; 9 Apfel Marthe-Anne ; 10 Neuviller Jean ; 11 Thon Marie ; 12 Verly Jean : 13 Stoll Christine 14 ; Becker Pierre ; 15 Eichelberger Véronique ; … 20 Neuviller Joseph ; 22 Ringelsbach Anne ; 23 Thon Jean

Dans l'hypothèse où Didier Marchal ne serait pas du Ban de la Roche même, il importe de noter que ce nom et ce prénom sont très courants dans la région.

Didier Marchal meurt vraisemblablement pendant la traversée. En effet, noté malade sur une des listes du capitaine, il est absent de la liste d'immigrants finalement soumise à l'approbation de la Cour.

From 1886 History of Cumberland County:

JOHN SHOPP, retired farmer, near Shiremanstown, was born July 6, 1794, on the place where he now resides. His farm is one of the original tracts, called "Manington," for which a warrant was granted May 17, 1767, by Thomas and John Penn. After but two intermediate transfers, it was purchased, September 20, 1774, by Ulrich Shopp, grandfather of our subject, and has continued in the ownership of the family ever since. Ulrich Shopp left, inter alia, a son John, who married a Miss Annie Hershey, and they had eleven children: Elizabeth, Magdalena, Christian, John (our subject), Sarah, Samuel, Jacob, Annie, Fannie, Catharine and David. They were a long-lived family. Magdalena died when a child, David in his seventieth year, and the others at ages ranging from eighty to eighty-nine years. John is the sole survivor. He was born in the small log schoolhouse which now stands near St. John’s Church, one-fourth mile from his farm, but which at that time was near the site of his present residence. He followed farming until about twenty years ago, when he retired, and has since been engaged in no special active business. He has long been an active member of the United Brethren Church, the first edifice belonging to that denomination in the neighborhood having been built on land which he gave for that purpose, together with sufficient ground for a grave-yard. In January, 1841, he married Nancy, daughter of Martin and Fannie Nissley, of Dauphin County. She died July 7,1841. March 16, 1843, he married Louisa, daughter of Rev. John Crider, who was born October 11, 1806, near Chambersburg, Penn. They had two sons, one of whom died in infancy; the other is J.H. Shopp, Esq., of Harrisburg, who was born January 20, 1850. He was educated at Dickinson College, from which he was graduated in 1872. Afterward he read law, and was admitted to the bar of Dauphin County, February 9, 1878. In 1881 he entered into partnership in the practice of law with Hon. David Mumma, one of the prominent citizens of that place. April 8, 1884, Mr. Shopp married Alice M., daughter of George Cunkle (deceased), formerly of Harrrisburg. The elder Mr. Shopp has a singularly bright recollection of matters pertaining to the early history of this section of Cumberland County, covering the greater part of the present century, and communicates his recollections in a clear and entertaining manner. Throughout his long life he has ever borne the reputation of a man of unblemished character, and has had in a large degree the esteem and respect of his neighbors, who hope to see him live to the full measure of a century.

By Robert C. Brown, Warner, Beers & Co. (Chicago, Ill.)

CONRAD RENNINGER, farmer and stock raiser, P. O. Findlay, was born in Cumberland County, Penn.,May 22,1809; son of Conrad and Catherine (Switzer) Renninger, natives of Pennsylvania. In 1854 the subject of this sketch, having previously been connected with the commission and forwarding business in the East, came to this county, engaged in farming and improved 160 acres of land in Liberty Township. He had married in his native place Miss Christiana Atticks, who died in this county December 11, 1874, and is buried in Maple Grove Cemetery. Of their family William occupies the old farm in Liberty Township, this county, and has two sons and three daughters: Catherine, was married to William Lytle (she and her daughter are both deceased), Elizabeth died while young, Henry is a farmer (he has a son and a daughter), Jane, wife of Dr. T. G. Barnhill (they have one son, Samuel, who carries on the home farm and, by his marriage with Ada, daughter of August and Dora Polz Armbrecht, has one son and one daughter: Reginald and Carrie). August Ambrecht, a native of Berlin, Germany, died in Andersonville prison, Georgia, during the war of the Rebellion. Mrs. Ambrecht was a native of Hanover, Germany. The subject of this sketch has always held a modest position in public affairs, but has served with credit on the school board of his district, and on Findlay Township Board; was also infirmary director for three terms. He is public-spirited and progressive, and contributes liberally to all worthy projects.

SAMUEL RENNINGER, capitalist, Findlay, was born in Cumberland County, Penn., May 14, 1816, son of Conrad and Catherine (Switzer) Renninger, natives of Pennsylvania. Our subject's grandfathers were Conrad Renninger, a native of Germany, and Frederick Switzer, a native of Switzerland. Samuel Renninger learned carpentering, but after following it four years he was compelled to abandon the trade for lighter work, and finally took up hotel keeping. In 1853 he came to Findlay, this county, and here kept hotel for several years. In 1873, upon the death of his wife, Mr. Renninger retired from business and has since given his attention to the collection of his rents, etc., etc. He has two children: John S., a prominent physician in Marshall, Minn., and Lillie, a lady of fine attainments, now residing with friends in Pennsylvania. Samuel Ilonninger is a clever business man and has succeeded in accumulating a handsome competence in the hotel business. He is liberal in his contributions to all worthy public enterprises, and gives with a willing hand.

Jacob Good, 1800-1811, 120A
Jacob Good, Jr., 1807-1811, 100A
--No Jacob Goods in 1817, although a Samuel Good (Jacob's son) is listed.

ANALYSIS: Deed records connect Christian Good and his son Jacob Good, who acquired part of his father's plantation, as well as adjoining lands. Deed records also prove this Jacob Good to be a widower in 1786. He next married a woman named Feronica. Estate records prove that Jacob have four sons. All were above the age of 21 years on 7 Jul 1813 (see Deed 8-526), suggesting that some-if not all-were born to the first wife.
Jacob Good acquired considerable land-about 420A by 1795. At his death, he held only about 141A, which he devised to son Samuel. Presumably, he deeded the other lands unto his sons. On the 1800 Federal Census, a John Good (son of Jacob) is listed next to his father. He and his presumed wife have no children. Further research is necessary to estimate the dates of birth of Jacob's children-and identify their mother.
Point of Concern: Jacob Good's first cousin Jacob Good (son of Jacob, the immigrant) also married a woman named Feronica (see Deed RR-40). It's possible that they have been confused in ways not recognized.

2. Samuel Good of same
3. Jacob Good of same
4. Christian Good of Earl tp.
---7 Jul 1813

MARRIAGE EVIDENCE:

Deed LL-261 identifies Jacob Good as a widower as of 19 Aug 1786. By 20 Apr 1801, he had married a woman named Feronica (see Deed K3-213). This Feronica must be Feronica Oberholtzer, the daughter of Jacob Oberholtzer. Deed P3-635 contains within its history an indenture dated 19 Aug 1791, in which Jacob Good & his wife Veronica (nee Oberholtzer) give their release to Jacob's real estate. To date, evidence shows only one Jacob Good with wife Feronica in Brecknock tp. during this time period. Jacob Good likely married his second wife Feronica Oberholtzer c1788. [Note: Feronica's sister Anna married one Peter Good, presumably Jacob's brother.]

P3-635: Barbara Oberholtzer, Elizabeth Oberholtzer, Joseph Oberholtzer, Jacob Oberholtzer, Anna Oberholtzer, and Abraham Oberholtzer, all of Brecknock tp., enf-rel.to John Oberholtzer of same
--Their right & title to 174a Brecknock tp. (formerly Cocalico tp.): HISTORY: It being the same tract that Christian Oberholtzer, Abraham Martin & his wife Maria, Peter Good & his wife Anna, John Heiger & his wife Barbara, Jacob Good & his wife Veronica, and Jacob Weaver & his wife Magdalena granted 19 Aug 1791 to John Oberholtzer. The said John Oberholtzer has since died intestate leaving issue seven children, all parties hereto, with John, the grantee hereto, his eldest son.
--16 Oct 1802

LANDHOLDINGS:

Based on the amount of land acquired, Jacob Good (son of Christian) must be the elder Jacob Good taxed on 430A in 1793.

1769: Christian Good heirs to Jacob Good, 122A and 33A (II-584; the latter tract being woodland)
1786: Jacob Good to John Good, 2A (LL-261; part of the 122A)
1788: Jacob Good acquired from John Tschantz, 22A (II-589, part of brother Henry's allotment)
1794: Jacob Good acquired from Abraham Sherk, 109A (K3-208; the rest of brother Henry's allotment)
pre-1795: Jacob Good acquired from neighboring lands, at least 36A (Copied Survey C5-72 to 74; see analysis below)
---------------------------
By the end of 1794, Jacob Good held at least 419A
---------------------------
1801: Jacob Good to Peter Mosser, 35A (K3-213; part of the 122A)
1802: Jacob Good to Cyrus Jacob, 33A (L3-363; the woodland tract from II-584)
1813: Jacob Good's executors to son Samuel Good, 83A + 36A + 22A (or 141A)

By 1795, Jacob Good owned about 285A, all formerly part of his father's real estate-it being the total of both he and his brother Henry's allotments (excluding two acres granted to his brother John).

HOWEVER, the second tract in Deed 7-331 (see below) appears to have a different origin. Samuel Good and Jacob Good patented land called "Good Intent" in 1808, which were originally parts of tracts warranted to George Hudson and Abraham Eicher.

Analysis: Jacob Good had surveyed for him the following three parcels, formerly part of two tracts: one warranted to George Hudson [later acquired by Abraham Eicher] and the other to the said Abraham Eicher:
a. 15a, 128p surveyed 14 June 1808 for Jacob Good (Copied Survey C5-72)
b. 11a, 58p surveyed 14 June 1808 for Jacob Good (Copied Survey C5-73)
c. 9a, 20p surveyed 14 June 1808 for Jacob Good (Copied Survey C5-74)

Total acreage surveyed for Jacob Good on this date: 35a, 206p. This loosely translates to the 36a, 16p mentioned in Deed 7-331 [note: 160 perches equals one acre]. It is unknown when Jacob acquired this land. The Samuel Good who acquired the other parts of the Eicher land could be both Jacob Good's brother and/or Jacob's son.

II-584: Magdalena Good, the elder [the widow of Christian Good, deceased, late of Brecknock tp.]; John Good & his wife Barbara; Peter Good & his wife Anna; Christian Good; Henry Good & his wife Christina; Samuel Good; Leonard Cloper & his wife Anna; Christian Swartz & his wife Magdalena; Samuel Huber [the surviving husband of Barbara Good, and guardian of their infant daughter Magdalena Huber]; Mary Good; Francis Good; Elizabeth Good; Susanna Good; and Esther Good [the said John, Peter, Christian, Henry, Samuel, Anna, Magdalena, Barbara, Mary, Francis, Elizabeth, Susanna, and Esther being children of the said Christian Good, deceased, late of Brecknock tp.] quitclaim to Jacob Good [another son of the said Christian Good, deceased]
--Two tracts: (1.) 122 ½ a. Brecknock tp. [part of two tracts, one containing 202a and the other 96a] and (2.) 33a, 36p Brecknock tp.: HISTORY: Part of four tracts in Brecknock tp. [to wit, 202a; 33a, 36p; 96a; and 58a, 70p] pat. 2 Feb 1761 to the heirs of Christian Good (Ref. PB AA-2-310). By his last will & testament, Christian Good had devised his estate to all of his children equally, appointing his friends Marx Graff, Michael Widwer, & Christian Carpenter as executors. In addition to the above-named children, Christian Good left issue Eve Good, Catharine Good, and Christina Good, who are all yet minors [their guardian is not identified]. Therefore, this indenture identifies Christian Good, the father, as having 17 children.

--John Tshantz, late of Lampeter tp., died leaving issue the following children: John Tshantz (the eldest son), Henry Tshantz, Christian Tshantz, Peter Tshantz, Barbara Tshantz, Maria Tshantz, Magdalena wife of Mathias Musselman, Elizabeth wife of Henry Souter, and Anna wife of Christian Newshanger. Son Henry died unmarried and without issue. By law, his share fell to his brother John. However, said John Tshantz died intestate, leaving a widow but no issue. Now, the surviving heirs, all parties hereto, agree that son Henry's share will go to the party of the first part and son John's share will go to the party of the second part.

On 27 May 1769, the heirs devised part of the four tracts to son Henry Good (Ref. Deed II-580 for the details). On 28 Sep 1782, Henry Good & his wife Christina granted two tracts, one containing 72 ¾ a. Brecknock tp. and the other 58a, 70p Brecknock tp., to John Tshantz (Ref. Deed II-577). Said John Tshantz died intestate seized of the two tracts of these presents. He left a widow named Esther [now wife of Abraham Sherk, party hereto] and no issue. By intestate law, the property descended to his widow Esther and his eldest living brother Christian Tshantz. On 8 Jan 1791, Christian Tshantz, with his brothers and sisters Peter Tshantz, Barbara Tshantz, and Maria Tshantz, released his right & title to Mathias Musselman, Henry Souter, and Christian Newshwander. On 8 Jan 1791, Mathias Musselman & his wife Magdalena, Henry Souter & his wife Elizabeth, and Christian Newshwander & his wife Anna granted their right & title to Abraham Sherk, the party hereto.

John Good of Martic tp. (son of Peter Good)

--NOTE: Tax records not yet compiled for Martic tp.

ANALYSIS: John Good's 1762 last will & testament names John Stauffer & Christian Schenck as executors. A John Stauffer & Christian Schenck were sons-in-law of Peter Good, whose last will & testament was probated 6 Oct 1745. This Peter Good had a son John Good, who acquired several tracts of land in right of his late father as well as other land. I presume that 1762 John Good and John Good (son of Peter) are the same person.
By his last will & testament, John Good devised the land that he lived on, consisting of 210A, to his son John Good. He devised other land in Manchaster tp., York County, to his son Peter Good. Orphans Court records dated 2 Sep 1766 prove that all seven children were still under age as of that date. Based on this record, I have presumed that his children's birthdates range from 1746 to 1761.

ESTATE:

LAND HOLDINGS:

I have found record of John Good acquiring three tracts of land in the Pequea region. First, he acquired parcels of land out of his father's estate, which I presume were adjoining (see delineation below). One tract contained 50 acres, the other 165 acres: The combined 205A likely equates to the 210A ("that land that I live on") devised unto his son John Good, Jr., by his last will & testament. [Note: The other five acres may suggest the acquisition of a small adjoining parcel-or perhaps a resurvey of both tracts found additional acreage.] // The other tract, consisting of 94A Martic tp., was acquired and sold within a three-year period in the 1750's (see delineation below).

NOTE: John Good devised by testament 283A Manchester tp., York County, to his son Peter Good. As this file pertains only to Lancaster records, I have not pursued this acquisition.

John Musselman of Earl tp.

Earl tp. tax records:
John Musselman, 1785-1788, 148A (missing '87; inmate '86)

This John Musselman is presumed to be the same man as the John Musselman of Cocalico tp.

John Musselman of Cocalico tp.

Cocalico tp. tax records:
Christian Musselman, 1769, 100A (see Deed S174; resident of Earl tp.)
John Musselman, 1770-1787, 100A to 32A (missing '77, '85)

NOTE: John acquired his land from Christian Musselman of Earl tp. John is taxed on the property five years prior to Christian giving him a deed for the same. One must assume that John completed payment in 1775. They are likely father and son; however, no evidence yet exists for this claim.

NOTE: It appears that John Musselman resided continuously in the township from 1770 to 1787. He did sell his last remaining land holdings in 1784; however, he appears to have reacquired them in 1786. See the following note for an explanation of his absence in 1785. It is possible that these are two different John's; however, I have presumed them to be one and the name. Each has a spouse named Magdalena and clearly a vested interest in the same property. They are possibly father and son but no supporting evidence exists.

KEY NOTE: John appears to have married Magdalena, the widow of Andreas Graff (see Deed TT-262). A John Musselman is taxed in Earl tp. from 1785-1786 and 1788 on 148A (but missing in '87). although he is listed as an inmate in 1786. This would appear to be Andreas Graff's land. Andreas died in 1771. Presuming a 1773 marriage, then John Musselman had but one wife named Magdalena.

MARRIAGE EVIDENCE:

TT-262: John Musselman, yeoman, & his wife Maudlina of Earl tp. [she being the late widow of Andrew Graff (or Grove), yeoman, late of same] quitclaims to the legal heirs of John Graff & Abraham Graff [sons of the said Andrew Graff, deceased]

Roger Parry's presumed William son later purchased the entire property from John Davies in 1762. Roger Parry's LWT should be consulted for directions as to the disposition of his real estate.

MORRIS, WILLIAM
Wife. Anne Morris. Child: Morris Morris. Grandchild: William
(son of Morris Morris).
Ex. John Evans and David Morgan. Brecknock Twp.

COMMENT: William Morris's neighbor, George Hudson, Jr., had a son named Morris. I would not be surprised if a family connection existed. William's last will & testament must be consulted.

Bangor Episcopal Cemetery, Caernarvon tp.:
Thomas Morris, died Aug 1746, age 9 years

William Morris owned three properties in Brecknock township. The first two tracts are adjoining--the other is several tracts to the west. All are along Muddy Creek and its tributary Black Creek.
1. 177a Caernarvon tp. pat. 21 Jan 1768 to William Morris (Ref. PB AA-10-237)

3. 85a Brecknock tp. acq. 20 Apr 1746 by William Morris [PB AA-13-5]

Based on tax records, I suspect that William Morris resided on the 231-acre tract while his son Morris resided on the 85-acre tract. William apparently purchased the 177-acre tract in November 1767 as an investment.
