  Notes for Maria Catrina Hunrof:
She appears to be traveling with the Jacob Willhelm family.
The remainder of the passengers on the St. Andrew were people from the upper Rhine Valley, and had reached Rotterdam by boating down the Rhine. Records indicate the Rhine journey usually took from four to six weeks, slowed by the necessity of clearing and paying taxes or tolls as the emigrants passed
through the various political entities into which the Rhine Valley was at that time divided. Among this group were individuals who are our primary interest for, insofar as can be determined from existing records, they were the first Treasters to reach the shores of the New World. They are shown on the passenger list as Hans Martin Treyster and Frederick Treyster. It is possible that at least one of the maternal ancestors of the Treasters was also among this group. We cannot be sure since no record has been found of the marriage of Martin nor Frederick. Hans Martin and Frederick, and several of the families including Ulrich Spies and family, with whom the Treasters were traveling aboard the St Andrew, eventually found their way to the German settlement on the Tulpehocken Creek, at that time in Lancaster
County, but later incorporated into Berks County when the latter was erected in 1752.
Evidence the Spies and Treasters were traveling together is furnished by the ship captain's list of passengers. That such list of the St. Andrew's passengers is available to us is due to concern on the part of the Provincial authorities regarding the rising tide of Germans entering Pennsylvania. Fearful that Pennsylvania would become a German state, the Provincial Council decreed in 1727 that the captains of all immigrant ships, bearing other than English citizens, would have to submit a list of all
passengers to the Council, and all males sixteen years and older required to sign an oath of allegiance to the Crown of England and an oath abjuring any present or future support of the Catholic Stuart line in England, which line had been overthrown by the Protestant Hanover line in 1689. As a result of this action there exists a record of most German immigrants entering through the port of Philadelphia from 1727 to 1808 in which year the practice was discontinued. The captains of immigrant ships were suppose to submit to the authori-ties a list of all males sixteen years and older showing point of origin and occupation. Each captain apparently interpreted the rules in his own way. Some captains entered the age of each immigrant. Unfortunately, Captain Stedman of the St. Andrew did not furnish information enabling us to determine the age nor exact point of origin of his passengers. However, the St. Andrew's list was divided into two parts, one including all male passengers sixteen years and older, the other giving the names of males under sixteen years of age and all females. Within these two divisions the
names of passengers belonging to families or groups were listed together. By reference to the St. Andrew's register of passengers it is evident the Treasters were traveling in company with the Spies. Frederick's name is placed among the names of the children of Ulrich Spies in the younger than sixteen list, and it is a valid assumption he was being cared for by the Spies family. Frederick was probably about twelve years of age when he arrived in America. Martin's name appears only one name removed from that of Ulrich Spies in the list of males sixteen years and older. Martin's age was probably about eighteen years when he landed at Philadelphia. Martin and Frederick were brothers. It is probable the Spies and Treasters were related.

Snyder County Pioneers Fisher "He served as a private in Captain Michael Motz's Company of the Northumberland County Militia."

(email Norma Key) During John William's time the "a" in Treaster was omitted from the surname. Hereinafter, John William's lineage spell the surname Trester. He served in the Revolutionary War in Captain John Beatty's Company. He was also a ranger on the Continental Line, 1778-1783. John William and wife, Maria Elizabeth, attended the Salem Lutheran Church in Penn Township, Northumberland County. A baptismal record for their only daughter was located in these church records. John William is listed in the 1790 Pennsylvania Census records, but sometime after this he moved to Bourbon County, Kentucky, settling near Paris. It is said they made the trip by ox cart. He was a farmer and a millwright. He died in 1813, and is buried near Paris, Kentucky. The exact location of his grave is unknown. His personal property was appraised 22 September 1813. An auction was held 23 September 1813. Maria Elizabeth was appointed guardian over six of their sons who were under 21 years of age. This guardianship is on file in the Bourbon County, Kentucky, court house.
