       809. Christina ?.

Notes for Matthias Kern:
Michele Hawkins' contact Lynn Parcel believes that Mathias Kern is the father of Lt. William.
This may have been the emigrant. Tilden H. Kern, 1956, says that the Kern family emigrated from Wertenburg, Holland to Eastern PA about 1700.

Ellis' History of Fayette County identifies Matthias Kern as a communicant
23 Aug 1795 at the Lutheran/Reformed congregation in Saltlick Township.

Michael Kern (1778).

The earliest reference I
found to Matthias Kern in Westmoreland County was in 1773 when he witnessed
a deed for Henry Kerns in Ligonier. It appears this family was established
in Westmoreland County prior to the Revolutionary War.





       Children of Matthias Kern and Christina ? are:

404 i.   William M. Kern, born February 08, 1756 in near Easton, Pa., Northampton county; died 1837 in Normalville, PA; married Catherine Hoover.

ii.   Michael Kern, born in Lone Apple Tree near Ligonier.

 
Notes for Michael Kern:
may have been killed by Indians

As it turns out, Matthias Kern did
have a son Michael who died 22 years earlier in Westmoreland County. (Vol
II #2; Administration Abstracts, 1778-1779, p11 Michael Kerns (also
Kearns).



iii.   George Kern, married Susanna ?.

 
Notes for George Kern:
moved to Washington county, PA


iv.   Peter Kern, died in Westmoreland county, PA; married Eve.

v.   Rosina Kern, born June 18, 1757.

 
Notes for Rosina Kern:
Assuming William Kern's statement (in his pension application) that he
was born near Easton in 1756 is true, some interesting possibilities emerge
depending upon how near Easton he was born. Near may not mean "too near"
if the vantage point in 1832 is from hundreds of miles away. One of the
records I found that is of interest is the birth of Rosina Kern to parents
Matthew (anglicized version of Matthias) and Christina Kern on 18 Jun 1757.
She was baptised 26 Jun 1757 at Tohickon Reformed Church with sponsors
Adam Hay and Rosina Seib (her namesake). By my estimate, Tohichon was
about 18 miles from Easton. The reason I find this so interesting is
because it appears the wife of Matthias Kern of Westmoreland County was
also named Christina. Mathias and Christina Kern were sponsors at the
baptism of Catharina Ulrich daughter of Henrich and Elisabetha Ulrich on 31
May 1784 in Westmoreland County. This seems to fit fairly well with
William's statements in his pension application if the family was in fact
living near the Tohickon Church when he was born and Rosina was his (16
months) younger sister. Based upon the order of children named in Matthias
Kern's will William was the oldest living child, followed by Rosena, Peter,
and George (Michael was already dead).




       828. Caspar Harbaugh, born August 11, 1733 in Germany; died June 21, 1832 in New Centerville, PA. He married 829. Mary Cramer.
       829. Mary Cramer. She was the daughter of 1658. Adam Cramer.

Notes for Caspar Harbaugh:
Caspar Harbaugh is supposed to have been one of the earliest pioneers in the present territory of Middle Creek township. He was originally from Germany. He served under Gen. Braddock in 1775, and resided in the eastern part of this state until 1789. In the spring of 1790 he came to the wild and sparsely inhabited region since known as Somerset county, and settled on the farm where Hiram Tedrow now lives, bringing with him a wife and two or three children. Harbaugh passed nearly all of the remainder of his life in this township. He died at the age of ninety years.

The Cramer Cemetery
is in Ursina. Someone else may be able to provide route numbers and
place names, however, there is a Family Style Restaurant located
along the major through way directly opposit a large church cemetery.
If you park at that restaurant and walk to the end of the parking
lot (away from Ursina) you will see a small family cemetery located
in the middle of a large field. The cemetery has (had) a flag pole
and was surrounded by a cast concrete fence. That is the Cramer
Cemetery.

Can't tell you everyone who's buried there but some are
Adam Cramer, his wife and descendants as well as my ancestor,
Casper Harbaugh.

Hope this helps,

Well Karon, Doug got enough of the details right to identify the
cemetery as Cramer-King. However, he got the wrong town. . . It is
located just North-east of New Centerville, PA, across formt he Lutheran
Cemeter. From New Centerville, go about 1/8 mi north on Rt. 281. Casper
is there all right, Doug, along with many other early residents of
Milford Twp. It's one of my favorite haunts. It's on the Milford site

Notes for Joh. Heinrich Lauffer:
Date:       97-05-14 14:45:13 EDT From:       LafferWBII

Hello everybody,

I just returned, Sunday, from the NGS Conference in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. It was hosted by the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania. And I tried to attend all the talks and seminars I could about Palatine Immigration to Pennsylvania in the 18th century.

As many of you know, Annette K. Burgert, author and expert on the Palatine emigration to Pennsylvania in the 18th Century, is a descendant of Bartholomew Lauffer, as am I. I made her a descendant chart tee-shirt using my Reunion software on my Macintosh. She was delighted, and we had an opportunity, actually she gave it to me, to chat about the Lauffers for a total of two hours over several days. She is a wonderful person and is very knowledgeable about the Palatine and Swiss emigration into Pennsylvania in the eighteenth century.

It turns out that the paper that Kevin Moore found by her titled "The European Origins of Christian Lauffer" is officially unpublished. She is planning on publishing it in one of her next two books, maybe two to three years from now. So when we refer to it we should be careful to say "unpublished" document.

She also indicated that there is no 'proof' that Christian’s wife was a Best. We are certain that she was named Susanah from various published baptismal records. But we have no proof that she was Susanah Best. Annette Burgert indicated that someone back in the 60’s was claiming that Christian’s wife was Susanah Best and when she, Annette, wrote and asked for proof, the other person never communicated with her again. Part of the problem seems to be that the Bests were not from the same area in Germany as the Lauffers and it was very unlikely in those days that two geographically distant families might be united in marriage. Also the Bests did not travel from Northampton County to Westmoreland County when the Lauffers did. Other families include Truby, Drumm, Dreisbach, and others.

She indeed might be Susanah Best, but as of now there is no proof. I am going to remove her as Christian’s wife and set the Best line aside in a separate file, in case later research verifies the present claim. We also know that she was not Elizabeth Detar/Deter. Her name was Susanah not Elizabeth. We also know that a Christian the fourth child and oldest son of John S. Lauffer, son of Christian "The Pioneer" married Elizabeth Detar. This Christian was born in 1799 and his oldest child, Mary, seems to have been born in 1824. I think the confusion about Elizabeth Detar being Christian "The Pioneer’s" wife comes from the proliferation of the name Christian Lauffer in Westmoreland County. There seems to be no proof that Christian "The Pioneer" was married to a Deter/Detar.

We know that the "Lauffer Family History" has many errors. They have the wrong emigration, birth, and death dates for Christian.

Bartol’s wife was Anna Maria (Mary Ann) Drumm, not Maria Engle/Angle Drumm

The book also incorrectly reverses the husbands of two of Christian’s daughters. Elizabeth was married to Jacob Christman not Frederick Rice/Reiss as stated on page 12. Ironically, Elizabeth is listed as the wife of Jacob Christman on page 18 where there is a brief listing of land transactions. And Catharina was married to Frederick Rice/Reiss not Jacob Christman as stated also on page 12. The authors seemed to have relied on old people to fill in the blanks rather than do any research themselves, or at lest cross reference their data with oral history.

One must be very careful with the statements in "The Lauffer Family History" as regards early information. Since Christian "The Pioneer" died before June 1796, we know any record of real estate transactions involving the name Christian during and after June 1796 must be attributed to a son or grandson of Christian "The Pioneer".

I have been asked to give the books, as far as I know, that have baptismal records of the Lauffers in them. They are:

"Bucks County, Pennsylvania Church Records of the 17th and 18th Centuries" by Anna Miller Watrins and F. Edward Wright, Family Line Publications 1994
Vol. 1: "German Church Records"
Vol. 2: "Quaker Records Falls and Middletown Monthly Meetings"
Vol. 3: "Wrightstown Monthly Meeting; Men's Minutes

"Pennsylvania Births, Northampton County, Pennsylvania,1733-1800" by John T. Humphrey, Gateway Press, Inc., Baltimore, 1991
He has several other publications for the Eastern Counties of Pennsylvania that were later spun off of Northampton County and one for Bucks, the parent county of Northampton. Northampton County was not formed until 1772. So we have problem as to where the early records may have been kept. That is where was the home church of the pastor who did the baptizing?

"Births and Baptisms 1792-1853 The First Lutheran Church , Greensburg, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania", Compiled by Della Regan Fischer (Mrs. Frank C.), 1103 Summit Street, McKeesport, Pennsylvania 1964.

"Births and Baptisms 1782-1815 by Rev John Weber Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania", Compiled from the translation copy of the original book of German records, by Della Regan Fischer (Mrs. Frank C.), 1103 Summit Street, McKeesport, Pennsylvania, 15131, 1964.

And several volumes by Paul Miller Ruff of baptisms in Western Pennsylvania.


Hope to hear from all of you soon.

My best.

From Walter to Ruth B. Fleming... Oct 9, 1997
<Vernon has been sending me info about the Best family and I received your message concerning the marriage of Susanna Best and Christian Lauffer.
The information I already had was from "A History of Wilhelm Best and His Descendents" compiled by Jude Fischer...1984.
In this book is this: "Susanna Best (Anna Susanna) - born in Germany in 1735, came to America with her parents in 1738. She married about 1751 to Christian Lauffer who was born in Germany in 1730 and came to America with his parents Christian anc Christina Lauffer in 1733 on the ship "Samuel". Christian was a Revolutionary soldier, a farmer in Lehigh township, Northampton Co., and one of the original members of Zion Stone Church in Allen township, Northampton Co.

Christian and Susanna Lauffer moved west from Northampton to Westmoreland County in 1778. Christian died in 1796, Susanna sometime after 1792. They are buried in St. James Lutheran Cemetery (Yockey's or Bash), Bell township, Westmoreland Co. Pa. Eleven children."

This from page 38 of above named book.>>
` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
Just because it is in a book does mean it is true. I hope that you did not pay a great deal of money for this book.

There is no evidence to support the idea that Christian was a Revolutionary War soldier. Look at the author's contradictions. First Christian is soldiering between 1776-1778 and then in 1778 he is moving west with his whole family except Peter.

He lived in Moore Township, Northampton County. He died June 1796 and his wife died shortly thereafter.. As regards his burial, the "Lauffer Family History", 1905 lists his burial as in the Old Bash Cemetery and so does Della Reagan Fischer in her cemetery listings of Western Pennsylvania.
` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
<<I wonder if the date of birth of Bartholomew as 1749 is correct?>>
` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
The source I have is this. His tombstone in the Lower Sandyville Cemetery says "Died January 1, 1822 Age 72 years." This is recorded in the cemetery listings of Tuscaraws County by the Tuscarawas County genealogical Society. Also I have been there several times and I have read it myself from the headstone.

Now, here is my reasoning.

First It seems hard to believe that old Bartholomew was born and died on the same day of the year. But if so, it still takes nine months to have a baby. Even in those days. This would mean a marriage of Christian and Susanna "whoever" no later than early 1749.

Second, I do not think he died and was born on exactly the same day of the year. I think he was born in 1749. Using the biological fact of nine months from conception to birth, we could easily have Christian and Susanna married in 1748. I do not care what some ill informed book says. I think that biological facts must supersede nonsense.

Now if folks want to persist in the assumption that Susanna was a 13 or 14 year old bride married to a 25 year old man, that is fine. I refuse to accept such nonsense without some very strong documentary proof. The book you quote did not use the published 1975 information about Christian's baptism and birth in 1723. The writer has the names of Christian's parents incorrect also. It is easy to dismiss this writer as a not very thorough and reliable researcher. Your writer seems to want to perpetuate the kind of self replicating nonsense that continually show up in IGI and WFT files.

Whomsoever wants to believe this obvious fiction as fact has a perfect right to do so. I have much more important things to try and research. The attempt to find the truth is hard enough without constantly having to refute fantasized fiction.

<<I DO NOT KNOW where Jude Fischer obtained her information. Possibly anyone could try to contact her to see if she has further information or corrected information. At the time I bought my copy of her book, she stated that she was working on another book and I've not heard if she ever finished with it. >>

I do not have the time to contact such an obvious unreliable source.
` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
<<I believe that some girls did actually marry very young and it could be possible that Susanna was married at an early age, but it seems impossible that she could have been only 13 or 14, doesn't it?
Ruth>>
Yes it does.

Therefore, it's most likely that this woman's full name was Anna Susanna Catharina; only one woman involved. Nor is it unusual for two sisters to share one given name, as in: Anna Susanna Catharina was probably called Susannah; her sister Mary (probably Maria) Catharina was the one know as Catharina. At any rate, Anna Susanna and Susanna Catharina are probably one woman.

The male church name equivilent is Johann. In a family of five boys, four of them would most often have the first name Johann, followed by the name by which they were called (i.e. Johann Michael = Michael). The fifth boy (fifth as in one of five, not as in fifth in line) carried the name Johannes, the equivalent of our John. This one usually had only the single name for it was the one by which he was called.

<<I offer no proof, but here is one supporting snippet:

The baptismal record on 19 Jul 1778 of Susanna Klippinger, daughter of
George Klippinger & Anna Maria (Best), lists the sponsors as Christian

TThanks for your help. I still do not know when or where Peter was born or even if the names of all the unproven children are correct. Between Adam in 1774 in Moore Township and Mary Magdalena in 1785 in Greensburg, I so not know where Bartol was. If he travelled with his father to Westmoreland County, it would be about 1774-5 that he would have travelled. Maybe he was delayed due to the birth of Adam.

(Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer)

Joh. Wilhelm Altman 11/14/1724
William Aultman
William Aultman was 20 years old when he left the Province of Alsace-Lorraine to come to the land of freedom-- America. This was in 1764. William was one of tens of thousands who left Europe at this time to escape the persecution of Protestants. He was a German of Calvinistic persuasion.

The sailing vessel which brought William across the ocean landed on the coast of Virginia. He entered a settlement in Virginia, and one year later, in 1765, he married Barbara Stahl. A large covered wagon was readied soon after the marriage, and William and Barbara, along with other folks in wagons, started a long treacherous trip westward.

Several routes came together at Cumberland, Maryland. Two routes that met here would be traveled by people coming west from a settlement in Maryland and the Penn folks from Philadelphia. A number of Holmes Countians have ancestors who traveled these routes.

From Cumberland, William and Barbara crossed over the Allegheny Mountains-- and kept going until they reached western Pennsylvania. Here they found a Reformed Settlement in Westmoreland County-- near Greensburg, Pennsylvania. William Aultman is recorded as a charter member in a church there. This church has the distinction of being among the first churches west of the Alleghenies to have a building.

One of William and Barbara's sons was John, born in 1771. From John and his wife, Elisabeth, we come closer to Holmes County. They lived a number of years in Westmoreland County and then came over to Tuscarawas County in Ohio and settled near Strasburg. John constructed and operated a grist mill in the valley south of Winfield and near the road leading from Shanesville to Dover-- now State Route 39. (Note: In view of certain facts that came to light circa 1992, much of the above history is arguable. See Eighteenth Century Emigrants From the Northern Alsace to America by Annette Kunselman Burgert. In particular, see the Herbitzheim church book record of the children of Jacob Altmann of Anna Maria Isenmann on P. 27. Among the nine children listed are Wilhelm (William), Johann Peter (John Peter) and Johann Caspar (Casper). Jacob and William are listed as Phoenix passengers taking the oath of allegiance, along with William's uncle, Georg, and his cousin, Anthony. Women and children under 21-- which would include Anna Maria, the two John Peters (sons of Jacob and Georg), and Casper-- were exempted.)

John George Aultman, 1770-
John George Altman

John George Altman was born about 1770, perhaps in Maryland, as recorded by Johnathan Altman, his son, where he lists both parents born in Maryland in the 1880 census, or perhaps elsewhere. There is no other record found showing his place of birth.

George served in the militia on the frontier in 1792.
He grew up in Westmoreland Co., Pa., as his father moved there about 1770. He married Anna Catherine Cherry (Schere), daughter of Peter Schere (Cherry) and Elizabeth, and they moved to Hempfield township, town of Greensburg, Pa., where his older children were .

In February, 1800, after the death of his father, he moved his family to the land in Blacklick Township (which is now Indiana County, Pa.), which his father had owned. George received the land by a deed from the other heirs of William Altman, dated 11 Feb., 1800, recorded 8 Feb., 1801. A similar deed was recorded in the Indian County books, dated April 8, 1800, but not recorded until 25 Jan. 1907, with the same heirs mentioned here as in the Westmoreland County deed. He appears on the Indiana County tax lists from 1808 to 1825 when he died. He did sell part of the land just before his death to William Sloan and others.

George Altman died in December, 1824 without a will, and guardians were appointed for the four minor children. Our ancestor, Johnathan Altman, was over 14 years, so he could choose his own guardian, and he chose John Harrold.

Notes for John Aultman:
John and Anna Elisabeth are buried in the Strasburg Cemetery.

(Most of the following notes were taken from Prof. Kellogg's research into the Altman family.)

John Altman, probably the youngest son of William Altman, was born about 1772, no doubt after his father came to Hempfield township, Westmoreland County. He grew up there and married Elizabeth (?)

John Altman was a drummer in Captain Painter's company at Westmoreland County militia, as shown on a payroll for May 6, 1789. (Pennsylvania Archives)

After the death of his father, John Altman came into possession of the homestead property "Belmont" by deed from the other heirs (as given in notes on William Altman, Sr.)

John Altman appeared as a witness to the settlement of the Zion Church accounts by Philip Wentzel, the manager, on January 22, 1798. His signature to this (from the original Church book) is as follows:(shown)

* * * * *

John Altman and wife had several children baptised at Zion (Harrold's) Church, or in Greensburg. Then we have no further information about him. (Perhaps he was the John Altman who was an early settler in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, where he is said to have built the first grist mill in Franklin township, about one and one-half miles south of the present town of Strasburg.

It is known that John constructed and operated a grist mill in the valley south of Winfield nearby the road leading from Shanesville to Dover (now State Route 39). The site of the mill dam which furnished the water power for grinding was still in evidence in the 1930's.

The gift of a Bible by John Aultman and his wife Elisabeth to their grandson, George Aultman, which the latter inscribed in part:
