Descendants of *Hans Michael Pfautz, Sr.

Generation No. 2


2. *JACOB2 PFAUTZ, SR. (*HANS MICHAEL1) was born 1705 in Rohrbach, Rhenish, Palatinate, and died 1762 in North Carolina. He married *ANNA MAGDALENA KUNTZ Abt. 1719 in Europe, daughter of *JOHN JACOB KUNTZ. She was born 1705 in Rohrbach, Rhenish Palatinate, and died Abt. 1763 in Hanover Twp., York County, Pennsylvania.

Notes for
*JACOB PFAUTZ, SR.:
Jacob and Anna Magdalena arrived at Philadelphia September 18 1727 on the ship "William and Sarah" from Rotterdam with a total family count of three and one-half freights (children under age eight were counted as one-half freights)
Came with father Hans Michael Pfautz, Sr.

Previous readings of Jacob's old, weather-beaten tombstone have
been recorded as giving 1716 and 1720 as birth years. Evidence,
based on date on Grandparents' mar., possible birthdate of
Father, and John Michael as first sons throughout this Pfautz
family -- plus circumstantial evidence that John Jacob Knutz was
Jacob's father-in-law--Kuntz came from Lower Neckar Valley also,
on same ship as the Pfautz in 1727, moved to Digges' Choice (now
York-Adams Co., Pa.) at same time that Jacob Pfautz located
nearby, ca 1741-2 -- suggests that Jacob belongs here in Family
Order.)"

2 Oct. 1743 took communion at the Conewago Lutheran Church
Naturalized on 18 Oct. 1743 by the Provincal Court of Maryland.

Philadelphia County, New Returns, 1734-1758, being Volume 9, "Warrants and Surveys of the Province of Pennsylvania Including The Three Lower Counties 1759" (9:55-56): Jacob Pfautz remained in the Skippack area of Frederick Township, Philadelphia (now Montgomery) County, taking out a survey warrant for 150 acres on Perkiomen Creek (bounding Wyan Tul, Gerard Zin, and Christian Stinebough) on 29 October 1734. On 7 March 1738 he had the tract surveyed, but did not follow through on the procedures required for patent. On 21 April 1741 (just 11 days after Jacob had sold the tract purchased from his father in Lancaster County to Samuel Cunningham), all of his rights under the Philadelphia County warrant were forfeited and his tract was patented instead to Jacob Free.
It is doubtful that Jacob and his family lived on the Hans Michael Pfautz tract on Conestoga Creek in Lancaster County for longer than a year (if at all), for the Philadelphia County forfeiture implies haste and expediency atypical to the times. (The warrant and survey each had value and could have been sold, time permitting). Whatever, by December 1741 Jacob was settled west of the Susquehanna River in the four-mile stretch of land north of the Temporary Line between Pennsylvania and Maryland and south of Digges Choice, a Maryland patent which was legally a part of and administered by Baltimore County, Maryland. He was a neighbor to and associated with those Germans who carried on the battle with John Digges and his heirs, 1735-1795, but his land was clearly south of the disputed area. The Mason-Dixon Line established later (1769) passed through it. By 1763 Jacob's family was located either in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, or in Rowan (now Randolph) County, North Carolina.
Burial: Lutheran Cem, Strasburg, Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania

Presidents
ANDREWS NAME WAS ANDREAS HUBER, ANGLICIZED TO HOOVER CIRCA
1763. ONE OF ANDREWS SONS WAS JOHN, GRANDFATHER TO PRESIDENT
HERBERT HOOVER.

BIOGRAPHY: Andreas Huber, b. 1-23-1723, at Ellerstadt, district Dunkheim, in the Palatinate the 9th and youngest child of Gregor Jonas Huber, a well-to-do landowner and vintner. An entry in the old Lutheran church book at Ellerstadt gives the record of his baptism: "Anno 1723. Den 29 Jan. 1st, Jonas Huber und Seiner frau ,Anna Maria ein sohn gebohren und den 7ten Feb. Andreas getauft." The house of his birth, number 17 Fleissgasse, was demolished in 1900, but the barn and vintner's building were left.
When he was 15 years old he emigrated to America, where two of his brothers him, preceded him,6 Johannes on the Mortonhouse, 8-24-1728, and Christian on the Dragon 9-30-1732. Andreas arrived at Philadelphia, 9-9-1738, on the Two Sisters. He stayed with his brother s and friends in the rich farmland of Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania until he was 22 years old when he marrled Margaret Pfautz, who came to America with her parents on the William and Sarah, arriving 9-8-1727. In 1746 Andreas and Margaret moved to Carrol County, MD, and, in 1750, patented fifty acres of land called Mirey Spring along Little Pipe Creek at the head of Chesapeake Bay near Uniontown. Here their children, except probably the youngest were born. During these years Andreas Huber changed his name to Andrew Hoover.
About 1772 Andrew took his family through the wilderness by oxcart to the Uwharrie River in Randolph County, NC. In 1779 he bought 200 acres on the east side of the river. Much land was available because the new state of North Carolina had taken it away from the British and Tories. Andrew and his sons subsequently acquired many acres of the best land in the state. 16, 43 They cut an empire out of the wildern('ss. established a dynasty, and prospered. 17 was wild country. Daniel Boone was a neighbor on the Yadkin, of which the Uwharrie was a tributary. Many of the traditions of the Uwharrie are Hoover traditions."The story goes that Andrew Hoover was not afraid of man, beast, or devil, that he climbed to the top of Eagle Nest Rock when others were afraid to, that he swam the raging Uwharrie to save the lives of his horses, that, while others in the settlement were home' in fear, he set out to face the headless horseman on the Uwharrie trails and brav(' the other ghostly figures that moved like lost souls down the valley. "
Andrew built a grist mill at the fork of the Uwharrie, and this was an important granary of the Revolution. The family also gave $500 to the Revolutionary cause --a large sum of money in those days. But there is no record of these Hoovers as soldiers in the Revolution.
A small business center grew up at the forks around the Hoover mill, where the big wheels operated a sash mill to hew logs into slabs when not turning to grind corn. This mill remained in the Hoover family for more than a hundred and fifty years. In 1792 Andrew left the mill for his son Jacob to run, and he retired to a farm where Cedar Run joins the larger river. In 1794 he made a Will, appointing his wife and eldest son, Jonas, as executors. Shortly afterwards he died and was buried near Back Creek on the Uwharrie. His widow died three years later, in 1797.
Andrew Hoover's ancestry was Swiss. The Huber famlly goes back to Bertoldus Hubere, b. about 1185, a citizen of Bern and the younger son of a minor landed knight or baron of Switzerland. His son, Burchard dictus Hubere, b. about 1222, acquired a fief from Sir Ludwig von Liebegg in 1268 in the Valley of the Wyna River, Oberkulm, in the present Canton Aargau, Switzerland. His descendant, Hans Huber, was deputy sheriff of Oberkulm, where he was granted a fief by Lord Hans Friederich von Hallwyl.
Georg Huber, son of Hans Huber, was deputy sheriff at Lensberg, 1641, and
miller of Oberkulm. Georg's son Johan Heinrich Huber (b. about 1644 in Oberkulm, d. 1744; m. Margaretta Hoffman) was a linen weaver of Oberkulm. Because,of the Swiss Pietist persecution, he migrated to Ellerstadt in the German palatinate.
came to America in 1738.
Andreas's son, John M. Hoover, is the GG Grandfather of Herbert
Hoover.
So, even though the name means a person working a farm/land or
is an old
German word Hube', pronounced "Hubay", meaning the possessor of
a tract of
land or a small farm, this line above did come from Switzerland
