Introduction

This page is concerned exclusively with Andreas Flach and his wife Anna Maria Schütterlin, of Flocktown, German Valley, Roxbury Township, Morris County, New Jersey, presenting a partial record of their descendants as well as a brief account of their recently discovered German origin.[1] We are now able to correct Anna Maria’s surname, long believed to have been Schüler based on the Patrey family bible (see transcription following the main text).[2] We suggest that the Georg Schütterlin who travelled on the same voyage as Andreas was his uterine half-brother of that name (see below).
    Their place of origin was Kehl, Ortenaukreis, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, of which the Evangelical church registers for the relevant period contain a mixture of events occurring in the main parish of Dorf Kehl and in the Christuskirche in Kehl-Sundheim. Solely for the purposes of this page, the two pertinent registers, extending from 1660-1723 and 1723-1763 (or 1770 for deaths), will be referred to respectively as Register A and Register B to avoid repetition.[3]
    In America the Flachs settled at German Valley (now Long Valley), New Jersey. An explanation of some of the place-names we shall encounter is given in the History of Morris County, New Jersey, with illustrations and biographical sketches of prominent citizens and pioneers (New York, 1882), p. 372, where it states: “The slope to the south from Schooley’s Mountain is abrupt, varying from 400 to 600 feet in a distance of about three-quarters of a mile, and faces a range of hills which rise more gradually to nearly the same elevation. These ranges in the southern part are known as Fox Hill, and between them and Schooley’s Mountain, is a valley, which in this township is called German Valley and is about eight miles in length.”
    There were certainly other Flachs (etc.) in New York, if not in New Jersey, at an early date. A Johannes Flack served as a baptismal sponsor in the Reformed Dutch Church at Stone Arabia, N.Y., on 25 June 1762.[4] A Henry Flack had licence to marry in 1779.[5] Five Flacks served in New York in the Revolutionary War.[6]
    This family has a Canadian branch founded by a grandson of the immigrant, John Philip Flock; and in addition, two daughters of the immigrant also came, namely Christina (Flach) Hansel (who came by 1799) and Margaret (Flach) Dean (who came in 1801, according to family tradition). These two sisters settled not too far apart in the Niagara Peninsula area.
    Cecelia and Roland Botting included a brief appendix on the “Flack” family in pp. 27-28 of their booklet The Deans of Gainsboro Township (s.l., ca. 1975). They there cite what seems to be the only book-length work on this family ever written, Jacob Divers Flack’s The Flocks (1938), a very rare work, of which there is a copy in the Library of Congress, but which we have not seen.[7] However, much of Bottings’ information on the early generations appears to have been taken from the memoir of the “Flock” family in Theodore Freylinghuysen Chambers, The Early Germans of New Jersey (1895),[8] to which we have had access and considerable recourse. The same is presumably true of the brief record of the “Flock” family in pp. 129-30 of Eugene A. Singer & John Singer, A Singer family of colonial Vermont and Canada, including the Overholt, Staats, Hunsberger, Slough, Will, Hertzel, Terryberry, Dufford, Swackhammer, Snyder, Freas, Moore, Flock, Dean, Boddecker and Dooley families, 3rd ed. (Lahaina, Hawaii: privately published, 2001).
    The account in Chambers, which is surely based on some family Bible record, errs in some particulars but correlates so well with discoveries made in German church records in 2017 that the connection is unmistakable:

  • Chambers says the immigrant, Andreas Flach, was born 9 September 1712. In fact Andreas Flach, son of Matthias Flach and Barbara geb. Mundlerin [feminine form of Mundel], was born on 9 September 1711.
  • Chambers says the immigrant, Andreas Flach, married Anna Maria ____. Andreas Flach, married 7 January 1736, Anna Maria Schutterlinin [feminine form of Schutterlin].
  • Chambers says the wife of Andreas Flach was born 1717, without giving a precise date. In fact Anna Maria, daughter of Hanß [sic] Schutterlin and Anna Schantzin [feminine form of Schantz], born 1 December 1717.
  • Chambers says that Andreas, son of the immigrant Andreas Flach, was born 20 October 1736. In fact Andreas, son of Andreas Flack and Anna Maria Schutterlinin, was born 14 October 1736.
  • Chambers says the immigrant had a daughter Catharina. born 14 February 1742. In fact Anna Catharina, daughter of Andreas Flack and Anna Maria Schutterlinin, was born 21 January 1742.
  • Chambers says the immigrant had a daughter Barbara, born in 1744. In fact Barbara, daughter of Andreß [sic] Flach and Anna Maria geb. Schutterlinin, was born 20 October 1744.
  • Chambers the immigrant had a son Mathias, born 6 March 1746. In fact Mathias, son of Andreas Flach and Anna Maria geb. Schutterlinin, was born 5 March 1746.

    The interested reader should also consult Richard and Sheila [née Crowder] Bauer, Descendants of Andreas Flock (last revised 2002), which uses primary sources we have not seen, such as genealogical manuscripts by F. Verne Flock and by Nellie (Flock) Simons and her daughter Mildred (Simons) Payne, and traces many lines to a much more recent period than what we have attempted. Indeed, had we become aware of their research at an early stage in our own investigations, we should have avoided covering so much of the same ground. (In their notes, the name Simons appears as Simmonds, a mistake kindly pointed out to us by Mildred Simons Payne’s granddaughter, Cheryl Chapman Workman.)[9]
    Since the first five generations of this family are not very large, we have included everything we have found on the male line up to that point. To what is given in Chambers we have been able to add some details from more recent writings, and in particular from Canadian sources. The data from German Valley tombstones is mainly from a transcript said to have been made ca. 1900 by Miss Ginevra Freeman, which along with other valuable transcripts of church and cemetery records is available at the Morris County, NJ GenWeb site at http://www.rootsweb.com/~njmorris/.[10]

Acknowledgements

I should like to thank my friend and kinswoman (but not herself a Flach descendant), Mrs. Mavis (Van Schoonhoven) Menzies, of Winnipeg, Manitoba, for the loan a number of years ago of a copy of Chambers’s Early Germans of New Jersey, before I acquired my own copy. The marriage record of Margaret Flach and John Dean in the Zion Lutheran Church was kindly verified for us by Marietta Pickell (who is not a Flach or Dean descendant). The photographs of the ruins Union Church in Long Valley were kindly provided by the late Peggy (Dean) Teeple, of Sarnia, Ontario — we are grateful to Richard Welch for bringing to our attention a serious error in an earlier version of these note, which misidentified the church.
    The account of Christina (Flach) Hansel was largely written by John Beatty. The account of Margaret (Flock) Read was contributed by Esther Doyle Read, a great-great-great-grandniece of the subject’s husband. The account of Andrew and Esther (Cook) Flock was much improved and expanded by their descendant, Brian Gage. The account of the Petrie/Patrey family was greatly improved by information provided by Brad Hurley, of Manchester, Connecticut, who has placed us further in his debt by the publication of this family’s valuable bible record (see the Appendix), and also by materials supplied by Mike Jones. Information on the family of Margaret Hansel and George Wallace was provided by two descendants, Jason Wallace and Robert Bruce Wallace, Jr. Deborah Glover helped develop the account of the William Flock who married Catherine Glover.

In addition, corrections have been received from the following persons:

  • Wendy Elliott, for a correction concerning Jonathan Obadiah Taylor, and information on his parentage;

1. Andreas1 Flach, of Flocktown, German Valley (now Long Valley[11]), Roxbury (now Washington) Tp., Morris Co., N.J., son of Matthias Flach and Barbara Mündel, was born 9 September 1711 (per his baptismal record) and baptized at Kehl as a son of Matthias Flach and Barbara geb. Mündlerin,[12] died (intestate) shortly before 3 April 1779 at Schooley’s Mountain, Roxbury (now Washington) Tp., and was buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, German Valley (now Long Valley). He lost his father shortly after his third birthday,[13] and was a full orphan before the age of 14.[14] He married 17 January 1736 at Kehl,[15] Anna Maria Schütterlin, almost certainly the one of this name baptized 1 December 1717 at Kehl as a daughter of Hanß [sic] Schütterlin and Anna Schantzin,[16] born ca. 1717, died 24 January 1810 at German Valley. Their marriage record, which does not supply their ages, names them as Andreas Flach (son of the deceased Matthias Flach “of this place”) and Anna Maria Schütterlinin (daughter of the deceased Johannes Schütterlin “of this place”).[17] He is described as a burgher “of this place” in the baptismal records of his older children (1736-1742), and as a burgher of Sündheim in those of two of the younger children born at Kehl (1744, 1746).
    Andreas Flach was among the “Foreigners from Wirtemberg, Alsace, and Hanau, [on the] ship Speedwell, James Creagh, Captain, from Rotterdam” who came to Philadelphia in 1749. The ship’s manifest mentions 240 passengers but records by name only the 91 family heads, though it may be presumed that he was accompanied by his wife and four eldest children. Among the other passengers was a Georg Schütterlin “von Hayl [i.e. Kehl?],” perhaps Andreas’s uterine half-brother of this name, who was born at Kehl on 10 August 1717.[18]
    On 25 September 1749 at the Court House at Philadelphia, Anreas Flach, along with the two men named Hans Flach and the other adult males, “did … take the usual Qualifications to the Government,” i.e. the oath of allegiance.[19] They remained in Philadelphia long enough for the families of Andreas, Hans Flach, Hans Flach Jr., and a Ludwig Flach, to be enumerated in the 1749 census; the 1751 census lists only a Matheis Flach.[20] It is not known whether any of these other Flachs were related to Andreas.
    Soon after this, Andreas Flach and his wife went to New Jersey, and settled at German Valley. He and his son Matthias bought 600 acres of land from Samuel Furness in the Boynton Tract, Roxbury (now Washington) Tp., Morris Co., and as they were the largest landholders in the area it became known as Flocktown.[21] Their neighbors there included Matthias Thomas, whose son John married Anna Flach, daughter of the immigrant.
    In 1774 the Reformed and Lutheran congregations of German Valley banded together to replace the log church they had been sharing with one of stone, and “Andrew Flacky” was one of the signers of the agreement.[22] Parts of the Old Stone Union Church still stand, but it is in ruins.[23]
    Andreas Flach is said to have removed later to Schooley’s Mountain, where he died. Letters of administration on his estate were granted on 3 April 1779 to Andrew Flock [Jr.] and Philip Crater [the deceased’s son-in-law, husband of Barbara Flach], and his estate was inventoried on 8 April following, though the accounts were not filed until 2 April 1781 (at Roxbury). In addition to typical livestock and farming implements, and materials associated with bee-keeping, the inventory lists not only “carpenters tools” but — what is more unusual — “shoomakers tools” and “shooleader” (shoe-leather), suggesting that Andreas Flach may have been a cobbler. A list of payments from the estate, which was valued at a little over £310, includes the names of Anna Flock, Christiana [sic] Flock, and Margarit Flock, who were apparently all of the unmarried daughters (probably not in order of birth).[24]
    Known issue (first seven born at Kehl):

  1. 2Andreas Flach, Jr., born 14 October 1736, baptized as a child of Andreas Flack “burgher of this place” and Anna Maria Schütterlinin;[25]
  2. Barbara Flach, born 6 February 1738, baptized as a child of Andreas Flack “burgher of this place” and Anna Maria Schütterlinin;[26] died 25 May 1738, and buried as a child of Andreas Flach and Anna Maria Schütterlinin.[27]
  3. Anna Maria Flach, born 9 May 1739, baptized as a child of Andreas Flack “burgher of this place” and Anna Maria Schütterlinin.[28] No further record found.
  4. Anna Catharina Flach,[29] born 21 January 1742, baptized as a child of Andreas Flack “burgher of this place” and Anna Maria Schütterlinin,[30] died (testate) 1 March 1823,[31] aged 81 years, and buried at German Valley. She married 5 May 1768, Anthony Shankle [Schenckel], of Sussex Co., born 22 July 1746, died (testate) 2 April 1810,[32] son of Heinrich Schenckel, of Roxbury Township.[33] In her will she refers to herself as “Anne Catherine Shankel,” while her tombstone calls her “Catharine Shankle.” Known issue:
    1. Catharine Shankle, born 25 July 1772, died 16 July 1860. She married John Castner [or Kastner]; no further details.
    2. Elisabeth Shankle, not stated to have married.
    3. (probably) “Anthony Shankle Jr.,” born ca. 8 March 1785, died 16 June 1806, “aged 21 years, 3 months, 8 days,” and buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He is not named by Chambers.
  5. Barbara Flach, baptized 20 October 1744 as a daughter of Andreß [sic] Flach “burgher of Suendheim” and Anna Maria geb. Schütterlinin, with sponsors including Georg Schütterlin, “burgher of this place,”[34] died (intestate) 14 July 1841, aged 97 years. She married before 1766, Philip Creter or Crater,[35] of Roxbury Tp., Morris Co., N.J., born 30 June 1744, d. (testate) 30 September 1797,[36] son of Morris Crater [Moritz Kreeter], who lived near Fox Hill Presbyterian Church, by the latter’s wife Elisabeth ____.[37] As noted above, Philip Crater was one of the administrators of the estate of his father-in-law in 1779. The will of Philip “Greater” of Roxbury Tp., Morris Co., dated 26 November 1795 and provied 6 November 1797, mentions wife, Barbara, sons Morris, John, Matthias. Intererestingly the estate included both a “weave shop and loom with all geers” and a “blacksmith shop,” besides a “home plantation of 440 acres with buildings.” An inventory of the estate of the widow “Barbara Crater” was made in 1841.[38] Known issue:
    1. Morris Crater (III), born 14 February 1766, died 12 May 1850, owner of a forge on the Hacklebarney River; his estate was inventoried in 1850.[39] He married before 1790, Anna Stephens, and had 12 children, for whom see the Creeter genealogy, pp. 50-51.
    2. John Crater, of Fox Hill, farmer, born 22 September 1768, died 20 June 1825. He married 1 November 1788, Anna Mary Schenckel, younger sister (or perhaps half-sister) of Anthony Schenckel aforesaid, and daughter of Heinrich Schenckel and Elizabeth Bercott. They had 4 children, for whom see the Creeter genealogy, p. 51.
    3. Matthias Crater, of Glen Gardner, born 12 December 1773, died 20 June 1855 (?) in Wayne County, New York. He married (1) Sophia M. Auble, (2) Mary Fritts, (3) Mrs. ____ Vandercook, (4) Mrs. Deborah (Shippy?) Still. He had nine children by his first wife and seven by his second, for details of whom see the Creeter genealogy, pp. 51-52, etc. Matthias Crater and his first wife were the great-great-grandparents of Joseph Force Crater (1889-?), the Judge Crater whose mysterious disappearance in 1930 was the subject of a huge investigation, spawned at least two books, and gave rise to the phrase “to pull a Crater.”[40]
    4. Mary Elizabeth Crater, born 29 September 1782, died 12 May 1793, and buried in the old cemetery at Fairmount.
  6. 3Matthias Flach, born 5 March 1746, baptized as a child of Andreas Flach “burgher of Sündheim” and Anna Maria Schütterlinin, with sponsors including Johannes Schütterlin, son of the deceased Georg Schütterlin, “burgher of this place.”[41]
  7. Christina Flach, no baptismal record found; died 25 August 1747, and buried as a child of Andreas Flach, “burgher in Sündheim” and Anna Maria geb. Schütterlinin.[42] No further record found.
  8. 4Elizabeth Flach, born probably 5 November 1750.[43]
  9. Margaret Flach, born in New Jersey ca. 17 March 1752,[44] died 6 March 1839, “aged 86 years, 11 months, 19 days” (per her tombstone), and buried in in the Presbyterian Churchyard, St. Anns, Gainsborough Tp., Lincoln Co., U.C.[45] She married 19 March 1781 in Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., N.J.,[46] John Dean (of unknown parentage), said to have been born 1 March 1754, died 19 September 1827, also buried in the Presbyterian Churchyard at St. Anns. They are said to have lived at Fox Hill before leaving New Jersey for Canada in July 1801.[47] This statement receives support from the fact that a John Dean bought 112 acres of land near Fox Hill in 1783, and sold them to an Andrew Shangle in 1801.[48] For further details see DEAN.
  10. 5[Maria?] Christina Flach, probably born ca. 1753; married Andreas Hansel.
  11. 6Anna Flach, born ____ in N.J.; married John Thomas. Chambers lists her as the sixth child, but she must surely have been the youngest child if she really belongs in this family.

2.   Andreas2 Flach/Flock ( Jr.), of Morris County, son of Andreas1 Flach and Anna Maria Schütterlin, was born born 14 October 1736, baptized as a child of Andreas Flack “burgher of this place” and Anna Maria Schütterlinin,[49] died (intestate) 20 August 1789, and was buried 22 August following in German Valley (“We committed to the earth, in the Valley, the body of our good brother, Andreas Flach”).[50] He married by 1757, Margareta ____, born 1726, died 9 December 1795, and buried 11 December following in German Valley (“The deceased Widow Flack was buried in the Valley”).[51] He was appointed one of the administrators of his father’s estate in 1779. Letters of administration on his own estate, dated 28 September 1789, were granted to Philip Flock and John Flock, and his widow Margaret renunciated.[52] His death in New Jersey disproves the contention of Chambers that this man went to Canada; this statement possibly confuses him with his son John Philip, whom the Bottings (perhaps following J.D. Flack) place there.
    Known issue (per Chambers):

  1. 7John Philip Flach/Floch/Flock, born 25 September 1757.
  2. Anna Margaretha Flach,[53] born 3 November 1761. She married (as his first wife) 2 October 1791 in the Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., New Jersey (on the same day as her brother Matthias),[54] Johannes Swartzwelder [i.e. Schwartzwälder][55] of Stillwater Tp., Sussex Co., born 30 May 1767 at Hartwick, Sussex Co., died before 17 June 1858 (when a division of his estate was made),[56] son of Martin Schwartzwelder,[57] of Stillwater, by the latter’s wife Rosina Barbara Gotzin. Margaretha was mother of most or all of her husband’s children. He is presumably the John Swartwelder listed in the 1830 census of Stillwater Tp., p. 242, but he has not been found in the 1850 census. The division of his estate, which consisted of 57 acres in Stillwater Tp., mainly supports the record of his children as given by Chambers, but also lists among the “tenants” of his former estate “Catherine, widow of Jacob Savercool, Jr.”[58] Known issue (per Chambers):
    1. Martin Swartzwelder or Swartswelder, of Knowlton, Warren Co., born 5 August 1793 (or 1794?), died 10 April 1843; he married Mary [Teel?], and had the following children baptized in the Presbyterian Church of Stillwater:
      1. Elisabeth Teel Swartswelder, born 7 January 1818, baptized 7 June following.
      2. John Swartswelder, born 13 November 1822, baptized 2 February 1823.
    2. Andreas Swartzwelder, born 8 May 1795. The estate of an Andrew Swartswelder was inventoried in 1865.[59] An Andrew Swartzwelder, aged 54, born in New Jersey, a farmer of lands worth $6,000, is listed in the 1850 census of Stillwater Tp. with wife Frances (aged 38, also born in New Jersey), and the following children, all born in New Jersey:[60]
      1. Elizabeth Swartzwelder, born 1834-35.
      2. Susan Swartzwelder, born 1836-37, perhaps the Susan “Startswelder” of Stillwater who married 9 November 1861, Michael Hendershot, of the same place.[61]
      3. Margaret Swartzwelder, born 1838-39, perhaps the Margaret C. “Startswelder” of Stillwater who married 29 January 1863, Searing P. Bowers, of Washington Tp.[62]
      4. John Swartzwelder, born 1839-40.
      5. Michael Swartzwelder, born 1840-41.
      6. Caroline Swartzwelder, born 1843-44.
      7. Elley A. Swartzwelder, born 1847-48.
      8. Hannah F. Swartzwelder, born 1848-49.
    3. Anna Margaret Swartzwelder, born 8 January 1797, died 5 December 1869, and buried with her husband at Stillwater. She married 7 January 1819 in Sussex Co.,[63] George Maring (the name is spelled Merring in the marriage record, but usually appears as Maring), of Stillwater, born 16 January 1796, died 25 March 1879, son of Andrew Maring and Margaret Struble.[64] Issue (per Mering genealogy):
      1. Mary A. Maring, born 25 September 1819, died 8 June 1845 (or possibly this is her husband’s date of death); married 14 January 1843, Aaron VanDoren.
      2. Susanna Maring, born 18 February 1822, died 10 December 1884; married 15 January 1846, Jacob Maring, of Byram, New Jersey, son of Jacob Maring and Catherine Wilgus. They had three daughters and one son.
      3. Margaret Maring, born 6 March 1825, died 11 December 1884. She married ____ Constable, but had no issue.
      4. Catherine Maring, born 10 August 1829, died 6 April 1830.
      5. John S. Maring, born 26 May 1830, died 26 October 1879, and buried at Stillwater. He married in November 1864, Hannah Grover. “They took up their residence at Tobbahanna, Pa., but subsequently removed to Harwick Township, Warren County, N.J.” Issue (for further details of whom see the Mering genealogy): John, George, Margaret (d. in infancy), Gertrude, Jacob, May, and Andrew.
      6. George Maring, born 12 February 1832, died 30 April 1872; married 3 November 1860, Amelia Transue. Issue (for further details of whom see the Mering genealogy): Margaret, George.
    4. Matthias Swartzwelder, Jr., born 1799; perhaps the Matthias Swartswelder of Stillwater Tp. who married 16 January 1839 in Sussex Co.,[65] Margaret Locy. This couple, as Matthias Swartzwelder, aged 37, laborer, born in New Jersey, and his wife Margaret, aged 35, and also born in New Jersey, appear in the 1850 census of Stillwater Tp. with their daughter:[66]
      1. Susan Swartzwelder, born 1836-37 in New Jersey.
    5. Jacob Swartzwelder, born 13 November 18— (?),[67] must have died by 1858, as he is not mentioned in the division of his father’s estate.
    6. Johannes or Johannah Swartzwelder, born 20 March 1803, baptized 19 May following in the Stillwater Presbyterian Church. Chambers says Johannes, while the church record says Johannah. Whoever this child was, they must have died by 1858, as they are not mentioned in the division of their father’s estate.
    7. (perhaps) Catherine [Swartzwelder?], married Jacob Savercool (see above). If she was indeed a daughter of John Swartzwelder, we cannot say for certain that she was of his first marriage.
  3. Andrew Flach (III), born 23 August 1763, died 23 September 1765.
  4. Maria Catharine Flach, born 23 October 1768. She was likely (as Chambers thought) the Catharine Flack who was married 25 February 1789 by Jacob Senn, minister of the Stillwater Reformed Church, Sussex Co.,[68] to John Philip Coss (called Philip in the marriage record), born 20 February 1771, son of John Peter Coss and Anna Mary Wyker.[69] It is not known whether they had issue.
  5. Matthias Flach/Flock, born 19 August 1771, died (intestate) 23 November 1793.[70] He married 21 October 1791 in the Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., New Jersey (on the same day as his sister Margaretha),[71] A[nna] Barbara Schwartzwelder [perhaps a sister of Johannes Schwartzwelder above], born 27 November 1793. It will be noted that he died only two years after his marriage; and no issue is recorded for him. He is presumably the “Matthias Flock” of Roxbury Tp. who is recorded in the 1793 list of Morris County freeholders,[72] and the “Matthius Flock, Jr.” in the list of Morris County militia, made in the same year.[73] In accordance with eighteenth-century usage he would qualify as “Jr.” because he was younger than his uncle, Matthias Flach (no. 3), whereas the latter’s own son Matthias, born in 1781, was too young to have been a land-holder in 1793.

3.   Matthias2 Flach/Flock, of Morris Tp., Morris Co., son of Andreas1 Flach and Anna Maria Schütterlin, was born born 5 March 1746, baptized as a child of Andreas Flach “burgher of Sündheim” and Anna Maria Schütterlinin, with sponsors including Johannes Schütterlin, son of the deceased Georg Schütterlin, “burgher of this place,”[74] died (intestate) 17 October 1806,[75] “in the 61st year of his age,” and was buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He married by 1775, Mary Margaret Rarick, born 1755, died 15 March 1835, and buried with her husband, daughter of Hans Conrad Rarick and Anna Maria Weber.[76]
    He is presumably the “Matthias Flock” of Roxbury Tp. who is recorded in the 1793 list of Morris County freeholders.[77] The division of his estate lists his “only children” as Martin Flock, Margaret Weiss (nee Flock), John Flock, Andrew Flock, Mary Flock (minor), and Matthias Flock (who was appointed a guardian of his sister Mary).[78]
    Known issue (per Chambers):

  1. Martin Flock, fl. 1806, when he is mentioned in the division of his father’s estate.
  2. Margareta Flock, born 10 April 1775, fl. 1806. She married by 1806, John Vas (or Was or Voos or Weiss), of Marksboro, Hardwick Tp., Warren Co., N.J.; possibly the John Vass, aged 86, born in Pennsylvania, and evidently a widower, a farmer with $25,200 worth of land, who appears in the 1850 census of Hardwick Tp. with Isaac S. Vass (aged 32), his wife Elen [sic (aged 25), and their child John B. (aged 1 month).[79] In the History of Sussex and Warren counties, New Jersey (1881), it is stated: “John Wass, or Vass, as it is now spelled, was among the settlers [of Hardwick township] about the middle of the last century.”[80] But this may have been an older man of the same name.
  3. 8Matthias Flock, Jr., born 18 December 1781.
  4. 9John Flock, born 2 November 1784, living 1818.
  5. 10Andrew Flock, born 22 April 1787.

She married (as his second wife) Jeremiah Lanning, of Mount Herman, Hope Tp., Warren Co., N.J., born 3 July 1794, died 8 April 1861, “aged 66 years, 9 months, and 5 days,” and buried at Yellow Frame, Frelinghuysen Tp., Warren Co., New Jersey, widower of Elizabeth Divers (whom he married 25 January 1821, with issue) and son of Edward Lanning (1764-1843), of Yellow Frame, by the latter’s wife Jane Smith (1768-1863), a sister of Silas Smith.[81] His estate was inventoried in 1861.[82] She is called “Mary” in the division of her father’s estate. William C. Armstrong specifically states that her marriage to Jeremiah Lanning was without issue.

4. Elizabeth2 Flach, daughter of Andreas1 Flach and Anna Maria Schütterlin, was born 1749 (according to the old German Patrey family bible record) or 5 November 1750 (according to the English Patrey family bible record, which agrees with the age at death given on her tombstone), and died 13 June 1823, said to have been aged 72 years, 7 months, and 9 days, and buried with her husband in the Patrey Burying Ground, Chester Tp., Morris County, N.J. she married before 1774, Wilhelm Petrie (or Patrey), of Chester Tp., Morris Co., born 13 July 1751, died (testate) 24 January 1819, aged 67 years, 6 months, and 11 days, son of Lennert Petrie and Catharina Langin. We take our statement of this marriage from a family bible record (see the Appendix at the end of these notes), the testimony of which refutes the statement in Chambers, Early Germans of New Jersey, p. 374, that she married “John Petrie (s. of William).”[83] The interested reader should refer to Brad Hurley’s database, which was kindly brought to our attention by its author, and from which we take most of the details given here.[84] “Wm. Petrj” and his wife served as baptismal sponsors to Wilhelm Abel, baptized 3 September 1785 in Zion Lutheran Church, Oldwick, Hunterdon County, N.J. William Patrey served in the New Jersey Militia in 1793. The will of William Patrey, of Chester Tp., Morris County, dated 1814, mentions wife Elizabeth, children Catharine Patrey, John Patrey, and Mary Shankle, and grandchildren William Van Doren Patrey, John Patrey, Jacob Patrey, and Catharine. The grandchildren were all under the age of 21.[85] Issue:

  1. Catharine Patrey, born 18 February 1774, died 5 May 1833 in Chester Tp., Morris County, and buried in the Patrey Burying Ground. The old German family bible record states that she was baptized with sponsors Daniel Landeman and Christina Flach.
  2. Anna Maria Patrey, born 11 April 1775,[86] died 17 September 1834 at Pottersville, Hunterdon County, New Jersey. The old German family bible record states that she was baptized with sponsors Andreas Flach and his wife (apparently referring to the maternal grandparents). She married 8 January 1793 in Zion Lutheran Church, Oldwick, Hunterdon County,[87] Frederick Schenkel, of Pottersville, Somerset Co., born 8 March 1770 in Morris County, son of Heinrich Schenkel by the latter’s third wife, Elisabeth Bercott.[88] Issue (per Chambers; for further details see Brad Hurley’s database):

    6. Fred Hunold Schenkel, born 30 September 1805; he married Elisabeth Crater.
    7. Barbara Ann Schenkel, born 14 September 1807 in Pottersville, Somerset Co.; she married (as his first wife) John Honeyman, Jr., farmer, of Peapack, N. J., born 9 May 1805; died 14 March, 1868, son of John Honeyman and Catherine Covert.[89] He owned a farm of twenty-three acres “on the road from Peapack to Lamington,” from 1822 until 1832 (when he sold it to his brother James). According to Honeyman, “He died on a farm, which he owned in his later life, midway between Bound Brook and New Brunswick, and was buried at Somerville.” His will was proved 26 March 1868 in Somerset Co. His second wife (by whom he had further issue) was Susan Crater, daughter of Philip Crater and Susannah Sutton, perhaps related to the Crater family mentioned elsewhere in this page. Issue by first wife (for further details see Honeyman):
      1. Henry Honeyman, born 28 May 1828.
      2. Sarah Honeyman, born 3 September 1829.
      3. Evaline Okey Honeyman, born 1 August 1831. She was the great-great-great-grandmother of Brad Hurley.

      5. James Honeyman, born 28 August 1835.
      6. Euphemia Honeyman, born 10 January 1840.
      7. Emily Honeyman, born 10 December 1841.
    8. Catharine Schenkel, born 16 August 1810; married Thomas Joralomon.
  3. John Patrey, born 14 August 1780 (or 1781?), died 28 April 1858 in Chester Tp., Morris Co., and buried there in the Patrey Burying Ground. The old German family bible record states that he was baptized with sponsors “Freiderich Frietz and his dear wife.” He was married 20 February 1804, by William Woodhull, Justice of the Peace,[90] to Mary Van Doren, born 4 November 1786 in New Jersey, daughter of Jacob Van Doren, of Roxbury (now Chester) Tp., Morris Co., her maternity being unclear.[91] Both were of Chester Tp. at the time of their marriage. He was a farmer, and is enumerated in Chester Tp. in the censuses of 1830, 1840, and 1850. The 1909 Van Doorn genealogy states their residence as being “near Peapack, N.J.” Issue (for further details see Brad Hurley’s database):
    1. William Van Doren Patrey, born 23 September 1804 in Chester Tp., Morris Co.
    2. John J. Patrey, born 23 June 1806 in Chester Tp., died there 7 January 1898, and buried in Union Cemetery, Peapack, New Jersey.[92] He was married 10 January 1835, by the minister of the 1st Congregational Parish, Chester Tp.,[93] to Lydia Carlile, born 1814-15 in Morris Co., died 19 August 1902 in Chester Tp., aged 87 years, and buried with her husband, daughter of Robert Carlile and Mary Baird.[94] They had issue.
    3. Catherine Patrey, born 12 August 1808, baptized 16 August 1808 in Zion Lutheran Church, possibly died young as she is not mentioned in the Van Doorn genealogy.

5.   [Maria?] Christina2 Flach,[95] daughter of Andreas1 Flach and Anna Maria Schütterlin, living 1814 (when she is mentioned in her husband’s will). Christina Flach is said to have been born while her family was on its way to America. She is probably the “Mrs. Hansel, [of] Beaverdam,” buried 25 August 1829, aged 76 years,” which would suggest a birthdate of ca. 1753.[96] She was godmother to her sister Elizabeth’s daughter, Catharina Petrie, born 18 February 1774 (see above). She married 19 September 1780 in the Zion Lutheran Church, Oldwick, Hunterdon County, New Jersey,[97] Andreas/Andrew Hansel,[98] born 1747, possibly in the Duchy of Pau, Hessen-Cassel (the place from which his parents immigrated), died 16 May 1818, aged over 70 years, and buried at Beaverdams Cemetery (Old), Thorold Tp., Lincoln (now Welland) Co.[99] son of Hans Hansel, of New Jersey, by the latter’s wife Mary ____.[100]
    Andreas Hensel, at the age of nine years, emigrated with his parents from Germany in 1756.[101] They landed in New York City and made their way overland and settled in New German Town (Oldwick), New Jersey. His father, Hans Hansel was a stock farmer and presumably Andrew followed in this tradition prior to moving to Canada. He emigrated in 1787 from New Jersey to Thorold Tp., Lincoln (now Welland) Co., Upper Canada. The travel party was made up of five Hansel siblings and their families, namely: Andrew and his wife Christina with at least one of their children, Andrew; Andrew’s (the elder) brother, Benjamin; Andrew’s brother, George with his wife and daughter, Anna; Andrew’s brother, John; and Andrew’s sister Christina and her husband, Philip Metler with their son, George. They set out from New Jersey, probably during the summer of 1787, and travelled up the Hudson River to Albany. From here they turned west and followed The Mohawk River Valley and then Indian trails to Niagara, where they crossed the border into Upper Canada. He lived for some time at Beaver Dams, Thorold Tp. before removing to St. Anns, Gainsborough Tp., Lincoln Co. About 1795 he petitioned the Crown for 300 acres of land, on grounds of “having been greatly oppressed and persecuted by the rebels during the late Rebellion in the States.”[102] He is noted as donating money to the St. George’s Parish Church, St. Catherines on 17 February 1796.[103] An Andrew Hansel (but whether the present man, or his son of the same name, we cannot say) was the first Assessor of Thorold in 1799.[104] On 12 October 1803, Andrew signed a petition to rid the German Church on Lot 6, Thorold Tp. of its minister, the Rev. George Joseph Wichtermann. Because of the church’s location, it is presumed Andrew had moved back to Thorold from Gainsborough by this date and was farming on lots 12 and 13.[105] He was granted Lots 12 and 13, Thorold Tp. by the Crown in 1804.[106] On 24 June 1813, at the southern edge of Andrew’s farm, the Battle of Beaverdams occured. An Andrew Hansler witnessed the 1814 will of Andrew Whitesell, of Pelham Tp., Lincoln Co.[107] In 1814, when he wrote his own will, he was living on Lots 12 and 13 of Thorold. In May 1817 “Andrew Hanselar” of Thorold Tp. was assessed £1 2s. 1d. in taxes.[108]
    Over his lifetime Andrew Hansel acquired some 1000 acres of land, as noted in his will. He bequeathed Lot 4, 4th concession, Uxbridge Tp. (200 acres) to his granddaughter (daughter of his son John) Eliza Hansel, lot N (?) in the 5th concession of Gainsborough Tp. (200 acres) to his son George Hansel, lots 16 and 17 in the 10th concession of Grantham Tp. (200 acres) to his son Jacob H. Hansel, lot 23 in the 10th concession of Burford Tp. to his sons Andrew Hansel and Jacob H. Hansel, and lots 12 and 13 of Thorold Tp. (200 acres) to his son Andrew Hansel, with the use of the last to his wife Christina for her lifetime.[109]
    Issue:

  1. John Hansel, died v.p. 29 May 1813, having been shot at DeCew during the War of 1812, and was buried in Beaverdams Cemetery (Old), Thorold Tp., Welland County.[110] He married (as her first husband) before 1813, Catherine Wilkerson, born 14 January 1791 in Thorold Tp., died 22 May 1830 in Westminster Tp., U.C., aged 39 years, and buried in the Brick Street Cemetery, London, U.C., sister of his brother George’s wife, and daughter of Robert Wilkerson.[111] She married (2) 14 March 1816, Richard Tunks. Only known child:
    1. Eliza Hansel, born 6 March 1813; she is said to have married Jacob Dale.
  2. Andrew Hansel, Jr., born ca. 1784-85, presumably in New Jersey, died 4 October 1846 “in the 62[nd] year of his age,” and buried in Beaverdams Burying Ground, Thorold.[112] He married 18 October 1828 in Thorold Tp., by license,[113] Margaret Carroll, born ca. Aug.-Sept. 1805, died 23 November 1844, “aged 39 years, 3 months,” and buried in Beaverdams Burying Ground, Thorold,[114] said to have been a daughter of Luke Carroll and Dorcas ____.[115] An Andrew Hansel, who attested by mark rather than by signature, was one of the men who signed a petition for clemency, dated 19 October 1816, on behalf of Caleb Wilson alias Swayzy, a 17-year-old boy who had been sentenced to death for horse-theft at the Court of Oyer and Terminer of the District of Niagara.[116] In 1818, the present man served as co-executor with his brother Jacob and John Hill of his father’s estate. He inherited from his father lots 12 and 13 of Thorold Tp.,[117] and together with his brother, Jacob, lot 23 in the 10th concession of Burford Tp. He was a member of Captain Anthony Upper’s Company, 2nd Regiment, Lincoln Militia stationed at Thorold, Beaver Dams on 5 September 1822.[118] An Andrew Hansel, described as a Lutheran, was one of the trustees who in 1822 purchased land near Beaverdams for a public burial ground and meeting house, which were however never built.[119] In the 1828 Census of Thorold Tp. his household is recorded as containing 2 males over age 16, 2 females over 16, and 1 female under age 16.[120] He and Margaret Carroll lived after their marriage in 1828 in Thorold Tp. Andrew appears in the 1842 Canada West Census of Thorold Tp., in which he is recorded as being a farmer, with a household consisting (excluding himself and his wife) of 1 male under 5, 1 single female aged 14-45, 2 females aged 5-14, and 1 female under 5.[121] By his will, dated 30 September 1846, he bequeathed Lots 12 and 13 of Thorold Tp. to his son, Andrew Hansel.[122] Issue:
    1. Margaret Hansel, born on her father’s farm in Thorold Tp. She married by 1845 George Wallace, born before 9 August 1817 at Tarves, Aberdeen, Scotland, died 6 July 1891 in Townsend Tp., Norfolk Co., Ontario.[123] A descendant, Robert Bruce Wallace, Jr., writes to us: “One of the more interesting stories my wife and I heard during one of our visits to Waterford relates to the construction of a large number of stone houses by George Wallace and Alexander Skinner, [mentioned in] the book entitled The Old Stone Houses of Townsend. Skinner and Wallace came from the same parish in Scotland, Tarves Parish, Aberdeenshire, both trained as stone masons and farmers before emigrating to Canada. Given George’s training as a stone mason, there may be some reason for his emigration about the time the second Welland Canal was under construction.” After the birth of their second child Margaret and George Wallace moved west, first to Windham Township for a brief period, then to Townsend Township where the last four children were born. They had five children (all of whom except Barbara Ann married):
      1. Alexander Wallace, born 21 November 1845 in Thorold Tp., died 22 May 1906 at Saginaw, Saginaw Co., Michigan, aged 60 years. He married 1 March 1876 at Port Dover, Ontario, Clarissa/Clara Shaver, born 28 December 1856 at Windham Centre, Ontario, died 18 Jan 1924, aged 67 years, daughter of John Shaver.

      2. Helen Margaret Wallace, born 1848 in Thorold Township. She married 29 December 1869, Wilford/Wilfred Edday. Their marriage record gives his surnam as Edy, but later records give Eddy.
      3. Mary Adelaide Wallace, born 1851 in Townsend Township; married 20 December 1876, James Augustus Boughton. Their marriage gives his surname as Broughton, but later records give Broughton, which is correct. They moved first to Novi, Michigan, and later to Traverse City, Michigan.
      4. Barbara Ann Wallace, born 1853 in Townsend Township, died unmarried, and is buried with her parents in the Greenwood Cemetery in Waterford.
      5. James W. Wallace, born 1856 in Townsend Township. He married 9 March 1876, Johanna Cunningham.
      6. Fergus Emily (“Minnie”) Wallace, born 1863 in Townsend Township, died 26 April 1891 at Denver, Colorado, and buried in the Baptist Cemetery, Vittoria, Ontario.

Ryerse, born 1860-61 (aged 28 in 1889) at Port Ryerse, Woodhouse Tp., died [in 1893–94] at Denver (where he had gone shortly before for his health), son of Francis Ryerse, of Port Ryerse, farmer, and Elizabeth Ann Potts.[126] In his will, Alfred left land in Louisiana in trust for his three-year-old son Bruce, and the sum of $1980 when the latter reached the age of 21. They had one child:
        1. Bruce Wallace Ryerse, born 5 July 1890 at Port Ryerse. He is not traced further in the Ryerse genealogy.

Beatty and Mary Jane ____. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of the mothers, both parties were residing in Thorold Tp., and the groom was a jeweller.
  3. Jacob H. Hansel, born ca. October 1786, probably in New Jersey, died 11 July 1853, aged 66 years, 9 months, __ days (illegible), and buried at (Old) Beaverdams Cemetery, Thorold Tp., Welland County.[128] He married before 1815, Isabel ____, born in September 1788, died 23 March 1839, aged 50 years, 6 months, and buried at Beaverdams Cemetery (Old). Jacob and Isabel lived before 1815 at Beaver Dams. He was co-executor with his brother, Andrew and John Hill, of his father’s estate, and from him inherited lots 16 and 17 in the 10th concession of Grantham Tp., as well as (with his brother, Andrew) lot 23 in the 10th concession of Burford Tp. In 1824 he was appointed executor of the estate of his brother, George Hansel. Issue:

  4. George Hansel, born 27 January 1789, died (intestate) 30 July 1824 in Gainsborough Tp.,[131] and buried at St. Anns.[132] He is perhaps the Geo. Hansel who ca. 1803 was one of the supporters for the building of a German church at Beaverdams.[133] He was a farmer, having inherited from his father Lot N (?), in the 5th concession of Gainsborough Tp. He married (as her first husband) probably before 1810, Sarah Wilkerson, born about 1791, died about 1843, daughter of Robert Wilkerson.[134] He and Sarah Wilkerson lived after their marriage near St. Anns, Gainsborough Tp., Lincoln Co. Letters of administration of his estate were granted to his widow, Sarah, his brother, Jacob, and his brother-in-law John Wilkerson. Sarah is likely the “widow Hansel” (no first name given) who appears in the 1828 census of Gainsborough Tp., her household (including herself) consisting of 1 female over 16, 2 males under, and 2 females under.[135] It is said that she married secondly, William Mingle, a widower with seven children.[136] Known issue:

The widowed David Hansel, a farmer, is found with his sons Peter and Albion in the 1881 census of Clinton Tp., in which the family’ religion is stated as Canadian Methodist.[137] Some Hansler family notes made in 1933 state:
      This inscription was on the marble stone, since broken and buried beneath the sod on the remains of David and Sarah Hansel who were moved from Mingle Hill and St. Anns in 1933. On November 1933, Frank and Albion Hansel had the remains of their parents David and Sarah Hansel along with the two monuments moved from the deserted neglected Mingle Hill Churchyard to St. Anns beside the graves of [David’s parents] George and Sarah Hansel, and the dates of the lives of the latter placed on the reverse side of the stones of David and Sarah Hansel.

      7. Robert Cosby, born 1854-55 (aged 21 in 1876) in Caistor Tp. He married 12 November 1876 at Smithville, Lincoln Co., by Canadian Methodist rites,[141] Rachael Caroline Dean, born 1856 (aged 5 in 1861) in Grimsby Tp, died 1939, daughter of Absalom Dean and Sarah ____.[142] At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of their mothers, the groom was of Caistor Tp. and the bride of Clinton Tp., and the groom was a farmer. Known issue:
        1. Clara Bell Cosby, born 19 November 1883 in Lincoln Co.
        2. Oscar Cosby, born 17 June 1887 in Lincoln Co.
        3. Omer Cosby, born 6 July 1889 in Lincoln Co.

      10. Culver Cosby; married Harriet Randall.
      11. George Cosby; married ____ Bush.

6. Anna2 Flach, who was still alive in 1804, is said by Chambers to have been a daughter of Andreas1 Flach, but note the length of the generations between her alleged mother, born in 1717, and her own youngest child, born 1804, a space of some 87 years. It would be desireable to have better proof of her parentage. She married before 1794, John Thomas, born in April 1767, died 17 April 1820, aged 53 years, 12 days, and his estate inventoried that year,[143] son of Matthias Thomas (of Flocktown), by his first wife, Anna Scharfenstein.[144] The name of a John Thomas of Roxbury Tp. appears in the 1793 list of Morris County militia.[145] Known issue:

  1. Elisabeth Thomas, born 19 June 1794, died 16 February 1865. She married before 1826, Abraham Talmage Dickerson, born 15 March 1794, died (testate) 14 March 1883,[146] son of Samuel Dickerson and Hannah Leek,[147] and they are buried with their sons William and Talmadge in Pleasant Hill Cemetery. His surname is erroneously given as “Dickson” in the 1880 census of Washington Tp., Morris Co., which lists in his household a Tunis Dilley, aged 22, no relationship stated (but probably Elisabeth’s grandnephew; see below).[148]
    1. William Dickerson, born 8 July 1826, died 2 March 1827.
    2. Talmadge Dickerson [male], born 8 Oct 1828, died 8 March 1848.
    3. Hannah Dickerson, born 10 December 1830, died 23 November 1911, buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery as “Hannah D., wife of Peter D. Johnson and daughter of Abraham T. & Elizabeth Dickerson,” but it is unclear whether her husband is buried with her. She was still living unmarried with her father in 1880.
    4. Elizabeth Dickerson, born 1 Feb 1836, died 3 February 1915; she buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery as “Elizabeth, wife of Abraham Davis and daughter of Abraham T. & Elizabeth Dickerson,” but it is unclear whether her husband is buried with her.
  2. Anna Mary Thomas, born 19 September 1795, died 27 January 1851. She married Morris Sharp (III),[149] son of Morris Sharpenstone (alias Sharp), Jr., of Upper German Valley, by the latter’s wife Mary Welsh, and had 9 children. Her husband is called a minor in the division of his father’s estate in “March Term” 1824.[150]
  3. Matthias Thomas, born 29 November 1776; he married Charity Reinhart and had 9 children.
  4. Ann Thomas, born 15 March 1798, died unmarried.
  5. Christianna Thomas, born 21 March 1800, died 10 February 1875, aged 74 years, 10 months, and 19 days. She married 14 February 1826 at German Valley,[151] Tunis Dilley, of Washington Tp., Morris Co., born 1805, died (intestate) 25 March 1868,[152] aged 63 years, 2 months, and they are buried with their children Elizabeth and John in Pleasant Hill Cemetery. He is said to appear in the 1830 census of Readington Tp., Hunterdon Co., and in the 1850 census of Washington Tp., Morris Co., but we have not personally checked these statements. The division of his estate, dated 3 April 1868, states that his widow Christine, aged 69 years and born 21 March 1800, “relinquished her dower rights,” and mentions children Anna (wife of Reuben Larrison), Matthias (aged 36 years), Abram, Jehiel, and David.[153] In addition to these, they were parents of John and Elizabeth, both of whom died v.p. and v.m. and are buried with them.
        A probable grandson of this couple was Tunis Dilley, born 7 April 1858, died 9 March 1909, also buried in the same cemetery, with his wife Emma V. Kellehan, born 11 November 1864, died ____. He is surely the Tunis Dilley, aged 22 years, an unmarried farm laborer, found in the household of Christianna (Thomas) Dilley’s brother-in-law, Abraham Dickerson, in 1880.
        Known issue:
    1. Anna Dilley, born 1827, died 1885; she is buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery with her husband, Reuben S. Larison, 1814-1901, and their children: John D. 1850-1851; James G. 1852-1871; Caroline 1853-1883; Keturah, 1857-1879; Reuben C., 1860-1883; Tunis S., 1862-1889; David D., 1866-1896; Mary S. 1868-1886; and Hannah E. 1871-1873.

    7. Jehiel Dilley, born 1845, died 1909; who is buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery with his wife Eliza J. Love, 1853-1899, and their children Jacob, 1887-1887, and an unnamed infant daughter 1888-1888.
  6. John Thomas, Jr., born 14 October 1802; he married Magdalena Bess, and had 10 children.
  7. Barbara Thomas, born 14 July 1804, died young.

7. John Philip3 Flach/Floch/Flock, son of Andrew2 Flach and Margareta ____, of Morris Co., New Jersey, was born (on or about) 25 September 1757, and died 7 November 1828, “aged 71 years, 7 months, 1 week, and 6 days,” and buried with his second wife in St. Peter Cemetery or Barton Graveyard (now Barton Union Cemetery), Mohawk Road, Barton Township, in the Gore District, Upper Canada (now Wentworth County, Ontario), his tombstone calling him “Philip Floch, husband of Anne Marey Floch.”[154] He is probably the “John Flock” of Roxbury Tp. who is recorded in the 1793 list of Morris County freeholders,[155] and in the list of Morris County militia, made in the same year.[156] He married (1) 27 September 1791 in the Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., New Jersey,[157] Catharina Swartzwelder [i.e. Schwartzwälder], born 16 January 1771 at Hardwick, Sussex Co., died 9 November 1793, and buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley, daughter of Martin Swartzwelder (above-named), who mentions his “daughter Catherine, deceased” and her son Andrew Flack, in his 1795 will.[158] He married (2) 12 February 1795, Anna Aimes, born about June 1772, died 18 March 1820, “aged XLVII years and IX months,” and buried with her husband, her tombstone calling her “Anne Mary, wife of Philip Floch.” He is presumably the “Philip Flock” of Roxbury Tp. who is recorded in the 1793 list of Morris County freeholders,[159] and in the list of Morris County militia, made in the same year.[160] According to The Deans of Gainsborough Township, p. 27, John Philip Flack came to Canada in 1796; but although his dates and those of his second wife were correctly given, no mention was made of their place of burial. But now that this has been established, it may be stated that they settled in the Gore District, some time after the birth in New Jersey of their daughter Susannah in 1805. John Philip Floch and his wife were ancestral to most, and probably all, of the Floch or Flock family of Barton and Binbrook townships. Although no definitive proof has been found except in the case of his son Philip, it is highly likely, on onomastic and other grounds, that John Philip Flack was father of most or all of the following children (order inferential):

(by first wife:)

  1. 11Andrew Flock, said to have been born 25 September 1792.[161]

(by second wife:)

  1. 12John Flock, said to have been born in December 1795,[162] and certainly born in New Jersey.
  2. Mary Flock, born say 1797. As “Mary Flaugh, of Barton Tp., Wentworth Co., spinster,” she had bond dated 27 January 1823 to marry Michael Hesse, yeoman, of Barton Tp., the bondsman being Matthew Crooks, Esq., of Ancaster, merchant.[163] In 1833 “Michael Hess” was one of the witnesses at the marriage her probably sister, Susannah Flock, below. We have not found this couple in the 1881 census.
  3. 13Philip Flock, born say 1802. The evidence for his placement in this family is given in his own account.
  4. 13bSusannah (“Anna”) Flock, born 16 Dec 1805 in New Jersey.
  5. Elizabeth Flock, born say 1807, probably identical with the Elizabeth McKee died Mar 27, 18__, aged _6 years, 3 months, and 11 days, widow of Peter McKee, who is buried in Barton Union Cemetery (where there is apparently no surviving tombstone for her husband). As “Elizabeth Flock, of Barton Tp., spinster,” she had bond dated 14 June 1830 to marry Peter McKee, of “Glandford [recte Glanford], yeoman,” the bondsmen being John Flock, of Barton Tp., yeoman, and Edmund Burton, of Ancaster Tp., gentleman.[164] Possibly her husband was a kinsman of the husband of Susannah Flock, above.
  6. Margaret Flock, born say 1809. As “Margaret Flaugh, of Barton Tp., spinster,” who had bond dated 12 June 1832 to marry Launiston [recete Lauriston] Cook, of Mount Pleasant [now part of Brantford on the south side of the Grand River], yeoman, the bondsmen being Plumer Burley, “of the Indian Lands, Wentworth Co.,” blacksmith, and George Higson, of Burford, yeoman.[165] They were married by licence 14 June 1832 as “Lauriston [sic] Cook, of the Township of Haldimand, County of Wentworth,” and “Margaret Flaugh, of the Township of Barton, same county, District of Gore, Upper Canada,” by the Rev. John Miller, with witnesses John Flock and George Higson.[166] We have not found this couple in the 1881 census.
  7. Christiana Flock, born say 1811. As “Christiana Flaugh, of Binbrook Tp., spinster,” she had bond dated 6 January 1834 to marry James McKee, of Glanford, yeoman, the bondsman being Matthew Crooks, Esq., of Ancaster Tp.[167] Possibly her husband was a kinsman of the husbands of Susannah Flock and Elizabeth Flock, above. We suspect her to be the “Justina” Flock who is said to have married James McKee, born in Scotland, and had a child, Martin Curry McKee, born 2 February 1840 (place unknown). We have not found this couple in the 1881 census. “Martin McKee moved to Van Buren Co, MI, before 1870. Relatives in Hamilton from whom letters were received in the early 1900s were Daisy Taylor and Mary Yeager. The letters refer to the Springer heirs, one of those land-fraud cases soliciting money, trying to prove descent from somebody that supposedly was cheated out of an inheritance, so it appears that “Justina” may have been a descendant of the Loyalist Springer family.”[168] The only child of this couple we can name with certainty is:
    1. Margaret Elizabeth McKee, born 1845-46 (aged 20 in 1866) in Glanford Township. She married 16 April 1866 in Wentworth Co.,[169] Jonathan Obadiah Taylor, born 1842-43 (aged 23 in 1866) in Barton Township, son of Joseph, of Barton Tp., by the latter’s wife Elizabeth A. ____.[170] At the time of her marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of the mothers (the bride’s parents being named as James and Christina McKee), the bride was of Windham Township and the groom of Barton Township.

8.   Matthias3 Flock, Jr., son of Matthias2 Flach/Flock and Mary Margaret Rarick, was born 18 December 1781, died (intestate) 21 March 1821, “aged 39 years 3 months, 13 days,” and was buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He married (as her first husband) 23 October 1808 in Sussex Co.,[171] Effie Weaver, daughter of Christopher Weaver. She married secondly, John Dilly. His estate was inventoried in 1821.[172] The division, dated “July Term” 1828, mentions that his widow Effy was now the wife of John Dilly; she was to receive one third of the estate as dower. The “only other heirs” were stated to be Elizabeth Flock, wife of Jacob Bird; and two minor sons, John and William.[173]
    Known issue (per Chambers):

  1. Elisabeth Flock, born 3 May 1811. She married Jacob Bird, who according to Chambers came to Schooley’s Mountain from Maryland. Issue:[174]
    1. Mary Bird, married Joseph H. Parker.
    2. Effie Bird, died young.
    3. John Bird, married (1) Sarah Wack, daughter of Jacob Wack; married (2) Ann (Swartz) Earn, widow of ____ Earn and daughter of Jacob Swartz. Issue, all by first wife:
      1. Jacob Bird, married Sarah A. Karn.
      2. Jennie Bird, unmarried in 1895.
      3. Kate Bird, unmarried in 1895.
    4. Sarah Bird, married William Wiley, son of John Wiley.
    5. Julia Ann Bird, married Robert T.S. Durham.
    6. William Flock Bird, married Frances Hoffman.
  2. John Flock, who married 8 October 1835 in Sussex Co.,[175] Susannah Divers. In 1895 they were living in Warren Co., without children.
  3. 14William Flack, born 24 April 1820.

9.   John3 Flack/Flock, son of Matthias2 Flach/Flock and Mary Margaret Rarick, was born 2 November 1784, and is said to have died in 1853 in Coshocton Co., Ohio.[176] He married before March 1824, Maria Sharp, born 2 November 1784 in German Valley, also living 1818, but presumably died by 1850 (when her husband is listed without her in the census), daughter of Morris Sharpenstone (alias Sharp), aforesaid, by the latter’s wife Mary Welsh.[177] He was apparently of Trenton, Mercer Co., N.J., at the birth of his son Morris in 1809. His wife is called “Mary Flock” in the division of her father’s estate in “March Term” 1824.[178] This man is somewhat vaguely said by Chambers to have “removed to Ohio or Canada,” and Ohio is surely the right place, as he is found in the household of his son Morris in the 1850 census of Oxford Tp., Cochocton Co., Ohio, which gives his occupation as a farmer (see below). In addition, the record of a descendant, Sheila Melba (Crowder) Bauer, which seems to be well informed, gives his death as occuring there.[179] Mainly according to Bauer, his issue (all born in New Jersey) was as follows:[180]

  1. Mary Catherine Flock, born 1807 (?),[181] died by 1870. She married 29 April 1830 in Tuscarawas Co., Jacob Tufford, son of John Tufford and Ann ____. Known issue (birthdates probably approximate):

    1. Catherine Flock; married Crawford Oller.
    2. Tabitha Flock; married Fancis Rose.
    3. Martha Flock, born 1851.
  8. Dorothy Flock, born say 1820. She married 20 August 1838 in Tuscarawas Co., Ohio, Joseph Wires.

10.   Andrew3 Flock, of Washington Tp., Morris Co., son of Matthias2 Flach/Flock and Mary Margaret Rarick, was born 22 April 1787, and died (testate) 2 or 20 May 1844,[182] and buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He married (1) 16 April 1812,[183] Sarah Lane, who is probably the “Sarah, wife of Andrew Flock” who died 5 September 1834, aged 49 years, and buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He married (2) 6 April 1837 in the Presbyterian Church, Mt. Olive, Roxbury Tp.,[184] Mrs. Sarah (Swayze) Salmon, born 1802-03, died 9 March 1861, widow of Samuel S. Salmon referred to below,[185] and buried in Mt. Olive Presbyterian Cemetery as “Sarah, widow (with issue) of Samuel S. Salmon,” having died 9 March 1861, aged 58 years.[186] The record of his second marriage calls him of Washington Tp., and his wife of Roxbury Tp. He is probably the Andrew Flock who served as a J.P. in Morris Co. in 1831 and 1842.[187].
    Issue (all by first wife):

  1. 17Matthias Flock, born 10 January 1813.
  2. (probably) John Flock, not listed by Chambers, born say 1815, who in the 1880 census is listed as an “uncle, retired merchant” in the household of Margaret A. (Flock) Read, daughter of Matthias above.[188] His age is there given as 68 years, suggesting a birthdate of 1811-12, which would preceed his parents’ marriage if he really belongs here.
  3. Eleanor Flock, born 1819, died (testate) 21 January 1859 near Mount Olive, and buried with her husband in Mount Olive Cemetery (per Salmon genealogy). She married well before 1850, Daniel L. Salmon, of Roxbury Tp., born in July 1815, died 4 October 1851, son of Stephen Salmon and Sarah Lanon.[189] Issue:

An assistant working under him discovered the bacterial genus salmonella, which was named in honor of D.E. Salmon.
  4. Margaret Ann Flock, born 1 December 1822, died 1 March 1875, and buried with her husband in Mount Olive Cemetery (per Salmon genealogy). She married (as his first wife) 27 January 1845 in the Presbyterian Church, Mt. Olive, Roxbury Tp.,[190] Philip Grandin Stephens, of Washington Tp., born 27 January 1822 at Mount Olive, died 29 May 1885, son of William Stephens and Hannah Grandin. The marriage record calls him of Roxbury Tp. and her of Washington Tp. He married secondly Elizabeth (Hance), widow of ____ Anthony, by whom he had further issue. Issue:[191]

11. Andrew4 Flock, of Barton Tp., Upper Canada, son of John Philip3 Flock, of Barton, by the latter’s first wife, Catharina Swartzwelder, is plausibly said to have been born 25 September 1792,[192] and died (testate) 13 April 1861 “in the sixty-eighth year of his age” (i.e. aged 67), being buried in St. Peter’s churchyard, Bartonville. As “Andrew Flaugh, of Barton Tp., yeoman,” he had bond dated 8 June 1829 to marry Esther Cook, spinster, of Mount Pleasant [now part of Brantford], the bondsmen being “John Flock the younger,” of Barton Tp., yeoman, and Alexander Robertson, of Ancaster Tp., merchant.[193] The marriage was celebrated 10 June following. Esther Cook is said to have been born in 1799-1800 in New York State (although her age is given as only 50 years in the 1852 census), and died 4 September 1878, aged 78 years, of dysentary, the informant being Daniel Flock, of Barton (her son); the record gives her religion as Church of England and her status as “housewife,” suggesting that her husband was then still alive.[194] She was a daughter of Daniel Cook and Phoebe ____. Andrew Flock was granted land in the 4th concession of Barton Tp. on 24 April 1855.[195] As Andrew Floch,born in the United States, he was enumerated in Wentworth Co. in the 1852 census, in which he is clled a farmer.[196] By his will, dated 1 February 1858, he left lot 3 and part of lot 4 in the 4th concession to his son Daniel, and $2000 to his daughter Catherine.[197] Issue:

  1. 18Daniel Flock, born probably in 1833 in Ontario.
  2. Catherine Flock, born probably in 1834 (aged 18 in 1852, 23 in 1858) in Barton Tp., who was living unmarried with her parents in 1852. As Catherine Flaugh she married 20 October 1858 at Bartonville,[198] James Gage Davis, born 1820-21 (aged 37 in 1858) in Saltfleet Tp., son of John and Jane Davis. At the time of their marriage she was of Barton Tp. and he of Hamilton Tp.; the marriage record calls her a daughter of Andrew and E____ Flaugh, and her husband a son of John and Jane Davis. We have not found this couple in the 1881 census. They were doubtless the parents of:
    1. Andrew Flock Davis, born about 19 July 1861 in Hamilton Tp., died 11 August 1874, aged 13 years, 22 days, of heart disease, the record giving his religion as Episcopalian.[199]

12. John4 Flock, of Binbrook Tp., farmer, son of John Philip3 Flock, of Barton, by the latter’s second wife, Anna Aimes, is plausibly said to have been born in December 1795,[200] and was certainly born in New Jersey; he died 11 June 1882 in Binbrook Tp., aged 86 years, “of old age,” his death reocrd giving his name as John Floch, his birthplace as New Jersey, and his religion as Methodist, the informant being George Floch, of Binbrook (his son).[201] As John Flock he had licence dated 26 July 1834 to marry Elizabeth Weaver, spinster, of Binbrook Tp., the bondsmen being Andrew Flock, of Barton, and David Weaver, of Binbrook, both farmers.[202] They were subsequently married 29 July 1834, with witnesses Andrew Sweazey and Esther Flock [wife of Andrew Flock above?].[203] She was born ca. 1810-11 (aged 70 in 1881) in the U.S., and died 19 Feb 1886, “in the 74th year of her age” (per her tombstone, in agreement with the statement in her death record that she was aged 73 years),[204] being buried in Binbrook United Church Cemetery, her tombstone giving her name as Elizabeth Floch.[205] John Flock and his wife are enumerated in the 1881 census of Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co., in which he is called a farmer.[206] Her death record calls her a Methodist; the informant was John A. Flock (her son). Known issue:

  1. 19Francis Flock, born 5 or 7 August 1835 in Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co.
  2. Andrew J. Floch, born about 23 October 1836, died 4 November 1868, aged 32 years and 11 days, and buried in Binbrook United Church Cemetery, his tombstone calling him a son of John and Elizabeth Floch
  3. Eleanor or Ellen Flock, born 1838 (per tombstone) or 12 June 1839 in Binbrook Tp, Wentworth Co., Ontario (according to her death record), died 5 September 1912 in Binbrook Tp., aged 74 years, of chronic bronchitis,[207] and buried in Binbrook United Church Cemetery, her tombstone calling her Ellen Floch, widow of William Martin.[208] Her death record specifically names her as a daughter of John Flock and Elizabeth Weaver (although erroneously giving her father’s birthplace as Pennsylvania); the informant was Wm. Martin of Binbrook, presumably her husband (who survived her). She (as Ellen Floch) married 15 January 1862 in Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co.[209], William Martin, born 1839-40, died 26 June 1920, “in his 81st year” (i.e. aged 80 years) and is buried with his wife, his tombstone calling him husband of Ellen Floch. There are many other Martins buried in the same cemetery, but it is not clear whether any of them are their descendants. They are enumerated in Binbrook Tp. in the 1881 census, in which William is called a farmer.[210] Known issue (all born in Ontario):

Smith, of Binbrook.
    5. Shamin [?] Martin (male), born 1874-75 (aged 6 in 1881).

As George Floch of Binbrook he reported the death of his father in 1882. As George Flack, aged 44, farmer, Methodist, unmarried, he appears in the 1891 census of Binbrook Tp.[217] In 1901 he was still unmarried, and living by himself in Binbrook Tp., the census calling him George M. Flock.[218] In the record of his death he is called a retired farmer, and is specifically named as a son of John Flock and ____ Weaver; the informant was W.I. Martin, of 245 Victoria Ave. N., “nephew.”
  5. John A. Flock, born ca. 1847-48 in Ontario, living unmarried with his parents in 1881, when he was a farmer. As John A. Flock he reported his mother’s death in 1886. As John Flack, aged 42, farmer, Methodist, unmarried, he appears in the 1891 census of Binbrook Tp., very close to his elder brother George.[219]

13. Philip4 Flock, of Barton Tp., yeoman, son of John Philip3 Flock, of Barton, by the latter’s second wife, Anna Aimes, was born say 1802, and is said to have died 24 August 1847.[220] He was certainly a son of Philip Flock, as shown in the account of his son Paul below. He married (as her first husband) by bond dated 22 February 1830, Eleanor Huffman, born 1809-10 in Ontario, died 1 December 1900, aged 90 years, at Waterford, “of old age,” having outlived her second husband.[221] Their marriage record describes his wife as of Glanford, spinster, and the bondsmen were Edmund Burton, of Ancaster Tp., gentleman, and John Flock, of Barton Tp., yeoman.[222] The widow “Helen” Flock is found with her children in Burford Tp., Brant Co., in the 1852 census.[223] She married secondly 13 October 1875 at Waterford, Townsend Township, Norfolk County,[224] James Loder Green. In the record of her death, in which she is called Ellen Green, widow, and her religion given as Episcopalian, the informant is recorded as Paul Flock (her son). Known issue:[225]

As Elizabeth (Flock) McKee she married (2) 23 July 1874 at Waterford, Townsend Township, Norfolk County,[227] Joseph Petitt, died by 1883. The only possible match for this couple we have found in the 1881 census is a Joseph Pettit, aged 58, born in Ontario, with wife Elizabeth, aged 55 (which if our subject would be a drastic overstatement), also born in Ontario; he had children Charles, aged 20, and Joanna, aged 17, who if this is the right man must have been by a previous marriage.[228] As Elizabeth Petit she married (3) 13 June 1883 in Glanford Tp., Wentworth Co., by Episcopal rites,[229] the slightly younger William Henry Saunders, born 1841-42 (aged 41 in 1883) in Glanford Tp., son of Jonathan and Maria (____) Saunders. At the time of their marriage, the record of which gives the names of both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of the mothers, the groom, a labourer, was of Glanford Tp., and the bride (whose age is shamelessly understated as 37 years although she could not possibly have been under 44 years of age at the time) was of Townsend Tp.; the witnesses were William Neale and Thomas French, both of Glanford.

Hope, Glanford Tp., Wentworth Co.[230] Her death record distinctly states her place of New Jersey (which is corroborated in part by the statement of the 1881 census that she was born in the U.S.), and calls her a housewife although she was in fact a widow; the death was reported by Peter Jas. McKee, of Glanford, farmer (her son).[231] As “Susannah Flock, of Barton Tp., spinster,” she had bond dated 6 April 1833 to marry Samuel McKee, of “Glandford [recte Glanford], yeoman,” the bondsmen being James McKee, of Glandford, gentleman, and Edmund Burton, of Ancaster Tp., gentleman.[232] They were married by license 8 April 1833, with witnesses John Flock and Michael Hess [husband of the bride’s sister Mary, above].[233] Samuel McKee was born 20 August 1811, and died 6 March 1866.

The widow Susannah McKee, aged 75 years, born in the U.S., is enumerated in the household of her son Philip in the 1881 census of Glanford Tp., Wentworth Co.

17.   Matthias4 Flock, son of Andrew3 Flack/Flock and Sarah Lane, was born 10 January 1813, and died 15 February 1852.[268] As Matthias Floch he married (1) 13 November 1834 in Sussex Co.,[269] Christina Divers, born 2 January 1816, died 6 September 1849. He married (2) in 1849 or 1850, Sarah Corson. Matthew and his family were members of the Succasunna Presbyterian Church, and Matthias and his first wife are buried in the churchyard with four of their children.[270]
    Known issue, probably all but the last by first wife (per Chambers):

  1. Andrew L. Flock, died 1883, and mentioned on his parents’ tombstone in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard (although it seems unlikely he is actually buried there). According to Chambers he married by 1859, Margaret Almeda Luse (not Lewis), living 1865, daughter of William Luse, of Marksboro, New Jersey, by the latter’s wife Catherine Gibbs.[271] She is mentioned as “Almeda Flock, wife of Andrew Flock” in the 1865 will of her paternal grandfather, David Luse.[272] Andrew and his wife lived at Pleasant Valley, Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania. He is presumably therefore the Andrew Flock, aged 40 years, “weigh master,” who is enumerated with wife Emma A. and family in the 1880 census of Pleasant Valley.[273] If so, then his children (all born in New Jersey) were:
    1. Luella (?) S. Flock (called O’Ella [!] in the 1880 census), born ca. 1859.
    2. Kate A. Flock, born ca. 1861.
    3. Henry D. Flock, born ca. 1864.
    4. Frank A. Flock, born ca. 1866.
  2. John Flock, died 1924, and buried in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard.
  3. Henry C. Flock, died (unmarried) 1855, and buried in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard.
  4. Jacob Divers Flack (who seems to have intentionally adopted this spelling of the surname in adulthood), died 1935, and buried in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard. He married Kate Drake, daughter of William Drake.[274] He was the author of the Flack genealogy cited above.
  5. Margaret Ann Flock, born 13 December 1841, died 10 May 1921, and buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery, Jacksonburg, Blairstown Tp., Warren Co., N.J. (not in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard, despite the mention of her on her parents’s tombstone there). She married before 1860, Isaac Fonger Read, of Blairstown, born 1 November 1835 in Warren County, died 2 June 1922 in Blairstown Tp., son of Isaac Read III and Catherine Matthews, and grandson of John Read and Elizabeth Ogden (paternally) and of John Matthews and Elizabeth Fonger (maternally).[275] They are enumerated at Jacksonburg in the 1880 census, their household at that time including her “uncle” John Flock.[276] According to Esther Doyle Read, “When her father died Margaret was a minor. When she married Isaac Read, was still legally considered a minor because she was 19. Isaac was appointed her legal guardian by the Orphans Court (Warren County New Jersey Surrogate Court Records, Letters of Administration and Guardianship Liber 2, folio 180). She is buried with Isaac and several of their children in Cedar Ridge Cemetery in Jacksonburg. Isaac Read’s plot is one of the largest plots in the cemetery…. Isaac owned and operated Read’s Distillery in Jacksonburg. The firm was well known for its Apple Jack. When Isaac wrote his will, he left control of the entire business in Margaret’s hands after his death. She died before he did, but Isaac never changed his will. This indicates to me that he had great faith in her business abilities and that she had probably been running the business with him. The Distillery closed down in 1919 when prohibition went into effect in this country. The family evidently continued to make apple cider in the old facility. The building still stands on Route 94 in Jacksonburg…. Two of Margaret and Isaac’s granddaughters (who are extremely elderly) still live in Margaret and Isaac’s house in Jacksonburg. Many of their descendants currently live in the area.” For more information concerning her descendants visit her web site: Read Family connections at http://www.charm.net/~edrtjd/readgen/230fam.htm, from which we take a few brief details of their children:
    1. Daughter (unnamed), died 9 March 1860, and buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    2. John A. Read, born July 1861, died 1940. He married May Titman, and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    3. Addie C. Read, born 31 August 1862, died 27 November 1864, aged 2 years, 2 months, and 27 days, and buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    4. Susan I. Read, born ca. 1865, died ____ married Frank T. Austin.
    5. Kate Alvesta Read, born ca. 1867, died ____ married Frank L. Jones.

    7. Andrew O. Read, born ca. 1870, died ____.
    8. Harry H. Read, born 1873, died 1934. He married J.A. Bird, and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    9. Emma A. Read, born 1875, died 1972. She married Elmer William Breed, and they are buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Brooklyn Township, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. Many of Emma’s Raub, Lake, Vough, and Kinney cousins also settled in Susquehanna County. Emma was also one of the three editors of The Flocks (1938).
    10. Clark Edward Read, born 1879, died 1960. He married Elizabeth Hughes, and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    11. Boyd S. Read, born December 1881, died 1972. He married Amelia N. ____, and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    12. William Flock Read, born December 1884. He married Levina VanKirk, another of the three editors of The Flocks (1938), and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
  6. Sylvester G. Flock, said to have been born 6 September 1851, living 1880. He married Louisa Lichtenfels (or Lichtenfeltz), born ca. 1852 in Baden, Germany.[277] He and his family, including a “brother-in-law” Robert Lichtenfeltz, are found in the 1880 census of Newark, Essex Co., N.J., in which he is called an engraver.[278] Chambers, writing in 1895, calls him a “a jeweller in New York City.” Known issue:
    1. Frederick Flock, born ca. 1874 at Flanders, N.J.
    2. Sylvester Flock, Jr., born ca. 1876 at Flanders, N.J.

18. Daniel5 Flock, of Barton Tp., Wentworth Co., farmer, son of Andrew Flock, of Barton Tp., by the latter’s wife Esther Cook, was born probably about 1833 (aged 20 year in 1852, 33 years in 1866, and 48 years in early 1881) in Ontario, died 1 March 1891 in Barton Tp., allegedly aged 59 years, 3 months, and 8 or 18 days, and buried in Hamilton City Cemetery, his death record giving his occupation as farmer and his religion as Church of England.[279] He was still living unmarried with his parents in 1852. He married 21 February 1866 in St. Peter’s church, Bartonville,[280] Isabella Ann Rennie, born 1 October 1845 at Toronto (per her death record), died 3 July 1924, aged 81 years, of carcinoma of the liver, and buried with her husband, daughter of Alexander Rennie (born at Aberdeen), and Catherine Graham (born in the “North of Ireland”).[281] At the time of their marriage both were of Barton Tp.; the record names his parents as Andrew and Esther Flock, but names only her father. As Daniel Flock, of Barton, he reported his mother’s death in 1878. As Daniel “Flack” he is enumerated with his wife and two daughters in the 1881 census of Barton Tp., Wentworth Co., Ontario, in which he is called a farmer, of German origin, and his family’s religion is given as Church of England; his household included a servant woman. Her name and age are therein inaccurately reported as “Anne J. Flack,” aged 40 years.[282] Her true name, agreeing with that given in her daughters’ marriage records and with the birth record of her daughter Esther, appears in the 1901, in which she is enumerated as the widow Isabella A. Flock, with daughter Esther.[283] The informant of Daniel Flock’s death was a Wm. Flock, of Barton, perhaps a son or brother whom we have failed to identify. At the time of his wife’s death she was of King Street, Bartonville; the informant was Cameron Gage, of Bartonville, “son-in-law.” Known issue:

  1. Louise Graham Flock, born 18 June 1869 in Barton Tp., Wentworth Co., died there 7 August 1952. She married 17 October 1893 in the Church of the Ascension, Hamilton, Ontario,[284] Cameron Calvin Gage, born 8 December 1863 at Bartonville, died there 8 February 1938, son of Peter Gage and Susan Waller. Their marriage record calls her of Bartonville, daughter of Daniel Flock and Isabella ____, and him a gardener, born at and resident in Bartonville; the witnesses were Adam Condy and Esther Flock [wife of Andrew?], both of Bartonville. As Cameron Gage, of Bartonville, “son-in-law,” her served as the informant of the death of his mother-in-law in 1924. Issue:[285]
    1. Florence Louisa Gage, born 10 January 1895 at Bartonville, died there 26 January 26 1906, aged 11 years.
    2. George Cameron Gage, born 31 October 1896 at Hamilton, died there in 1974 of a stroke, and buried in Hamilton Woodlawn Cemetery. He married ____ at Hamilton, Flornce Neild, born 31 October 1896 in co. Cork, Ireland, died in 1981 at Hamilton, also of a stroke, and buried with her husband, daughter of ____ Neild and Elizabeth Smith. Only child:
      1. Cameron Harold Gage, born 2 June 1924 at Hamilton, died there 27 July 1991, and buried in Hamilton Woodlawn Cemetery. He married 20 August 1949 in the Church of Ascension, Hamilton, Jeane Isobel Stevens, born 9 February 1926 at Toronto, Ontario. Issue:
        1. George Stephen Gage, born 1951 at Hamilton.
        2. Brian Douglas Cameron Gage, born 1953 at Hamilton, who contributed the present account of the Gage family.
        3. Margaret Elizabeth Gage, born 1956.
    3. Edith Irene Gage, born 15 July 1903 at Bartonville, died in 1974 at Guelph, and buried at Hamilton.
    4. Maurice Roy Gage, born 5 June 1907, died 18 June 1907 at Bartonville, aged 13 days, and buried in Hamilton Cemetery.
    5. Harold Howitt Gage, born 9 April 1912, died 13 September 1938 in an automobile accident. At the time of his death he was engaged to wed Hope Richardson.
  2. Esther Alexandria Flock, born 15 August 1873 in Barton Tp.,[286] died 5 May 1923 at Hamilton, aged nearly 49 years, during or as a result of an operation on her throat, and buried in Hamilton City Cemetery.[287] Her age was reported as 8 years in early 1881 and as 34 years on her marriage in late 1908, and therefore the birthdate of 23 August 1875 reported for her in the 1901 census is erroneous. She married 2 December 1908 at St. Mary’s Church, Bartonville,[288] William Joseph (or Joseph William) Syer, born 29 August 1877, died 3 April 1953, son of William Syer, gardener, and Lucy Ellen Waller. Their marriage record calls her Ester [sic] Alexandria Flock, of Bartonville, daughter of Daniel Flock, farmer, and Isabella Ann Rennie, and her husband a gardener, of Bartonville; the witnesses were Morris E. Syer and Cameron Gage, both of Bartonville. Her husband is called J.W. Syer of Bartonville in her death record.

19. Francis5 Flock, of Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co., farmer, son of John4 Flock, of Binbrook Tp., by the latter’s wife Elizabeth Weaver, was born 5 or 7 August 1835 in Binbrook Tp.,[289] died 8 April 1911 at Burlington Avenue, Burlington, of cerebral hemorrhage, aged over 75 years.[290] In his death record, in which his occupation is given merely as “retired,” his parents are named as John Flock and Elizabeth Weaver; the informant was G.M. Flock, of Burlington. He married (1) 28 December 1859 in Wentworth Co.,[291] Sarah Lotteridge, born about 31 December 1837 in Saltfleet Tp., died 1 July 1868, aged 31 years, 6 months, and 1 day, and buried in Binbrook United Church Cemetery, her tombstone calling her the widow of Francis Flock.[292] She was a daughter of Robert and Maria (____) Lotteridge. According to their marriage record, both parties were resident in Binbrook Tp. at the time; the same source names both of their parents, identifying him as the son of John and Sarah (____) Flock, whom we cannot place. He married (2) by 1881, and probably by 1871,[293] Jane Brown, born 21 October 1843 in Scotland, of Scottish origin, died 13 January 1929 at no. 8 Burlington Avenue, Burlington, of bronchiopneumonia, aged 85 years, 3 months, and buried two days later in Greenwood Cemetery,[294] daughter of John Brown and Margaret Barron, the informant of her death being her son, Murray Flock.
    Francis Flock is enumerated in the 1881 census of Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co., in which he is called a farmer, his ethnic origin is given as German, and his religion as Episcopal Methodist but that of the rest of his family as Canadian Presbyterian.[295] He was enumerated again in 1891.[296] They were still in the township in 1901.[297]
    There are several notable points about this family: they had three sets of twins, two of them consecutive; of the thirteen known child, at most one died young, and most of the others remained with their parents well into adulthood; the ages of all the members of the family, where they can be compared, were reported with perfect consistency between the censuses of 1881 and 1901. All these facts speak well for the family’s educational level and quality of child-care.
    Known issue, all born in Ontario, the maternity of the children born before 1881 being unclear:[298]

    (by first wife:)

  1. Robert Emerson Flock, born probably in 1859, died 5 Dec 1860, aged 6 “years” [recte months?] and 23 days, and buried with his mother, his tombstone calling him a son of Francis and Sarah Flock.
  2. Susan Elizabeth Flock, born 1862-63 (aged 18 in 1881); living unmarried with her father in 1881, but no longer with them in 1901. According to an unsourced patrons’s submission record indexed in the IGI, she died 12 August 1885, having married before 7 August 1885 (IGI), Robert Henry Packham, but we can find no such entry in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1869-1886.
  3. Alice Ann Flock, born 1864-65 (aged 16 in 1881); living unmarried with her father in 1891, but no longer with him in 1901.
  4. Arthur Miles Flock, born about 14 October 1865 in Binbrook Tp., died 11 Dec 1871 in Binbrook Tp., aged 6 years, 1 month, and 27 days (according to his tombstone; his death record says 5 years), and buried with his mother, his tombstone calling him a son of Francis and Sarah Flock. His death record gives his religion as Methodist.[299]

(by second wife, all born in Binbrook Township:)

  1. William Brown Flock, born 30 or 31 December 1871.[300] He was still living unmarried with his father in 1901.
  2. Andrew Gordon Flock (called Gordon in 1901), born 11 October 1873 (birth registations not found); still living unmarried with his father in 1901.
  3. James Norman Flock, born 21 November 1875[301], died (v.p. and v.m.) 27 December 1894 in Binbrook Tp., aged 19 years, of phthisis, his death record giving his religion as Presbyterian and naming the informant as “Francis Flock, [of] Binbrook, farmer.”[302]
  4. Frank Arthur Flock, called Arthur in the 1901 census, born 19 September 1877[303]; still living unmarried with his father in 1901.
  5. Margaret Jane Maud Flock (twin to Annie), born 29 January 1879[304]; still living unmarried with her father in 1901.
  6. Annie Jane Flock (twin to Margaret), born 29 January 1879[305]; still living unmarried with her father in 1901.
  7. Isabella Blanche Flock (twin to Catharine), born 10 April 1881[306]; still living unmarried with her parents in 1901.
  8. Catharine Ethel Flock (twin to Isabella), born 10 April 1881[307]; still living unmarried with her parents in 1901.
  9. Ellen (“Nellie”) Florence Flock, born 28 January 1884,[308] died unmarried 20 July 1910 at Burlington, of a brain tumor.[309] She was still living with her parents in 1901, and at the time of her death was a school-teacher.
  10. George Murray Flock (twin to John), called Murray in the 1891 census, born 11 January 1886.[310] He was still living with his parents in 1901, and still alive in 1929, when he served as the informant of his mother’s death.
  11. John Alexander Flock (twin to George), born 11 January 1886[311]; still living with his parents in 1901.

20. Paul5 Flock, son of Philip Flock, of Barton Tp., by the latter’s wife Eleanor Huffman, was born 4 April 1833 in Ontario, baptized 10 June 1833 in Barton Church, and died 10 February 1904 at Waterford, of pneumonia, aged over 70 years,[312] and buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Waterford, Townsend Township, Norfolk County.[313] He was living unmarried with his widowed mother in 1852, when he was a blacksmith, his shop being apparently in the town of Burford, Brant Co. He married subsequently Mary Etta Pettit, born 1832, died 23 or 24 July 1908 at Waterford, aged 74 or 75 years, of heart failure.[314] and buried with her husband. Her maiden surname is supplied by the 1913 death record of her son John Hamilton Flock, and by the 1925 death record of her daughter Mary Ann (Flock) Haviland. Paul Flock and his wife were enumerated at Waterford in the 1881 census, in which he is called a blacksmith.[315] He is mentioned in a newspaper article of 1897, which states, “Paul Flock showed us a lead plate about two feet across bearing the date 1799. It belonged to his grandparents, Philip and Anna Flock and was brought from Germany about 1800. It is the property of his mother, Mrs. James Green.”[316] Paul Flock’s death record calls him a blacksmith, and gives his religion as Methodist. A death notice of his wife states, “Mrs. Paul Flock, 74, died 24 July 1908 at the home of her son-in-law, Russel Slaght of Townsend. Survived by son Charley of Chicago, son Hamilton of Waterford, daughter Mrs. Haviland of Boston, daughter Mrs. Slaght of Townsend.”[317] Known issue:

  1. Charles P. Flock, born 1856-57 (aged 24 in 1881), who as Charles P. Flock (1856-1904) is buried with his wife Florence ____ (1859-1904) in Greenwood Cemetery, Waterford, Townsend Township, Norfolk County.[318] He was still living unmarried with his parents in 1881, when he was a lather. He was of Chicago at the time of his mother’s death in 1908, but we have not found him there in the 1910 census.
  2. John Hamilton Flock, born about 25 July 1861, died 3 August 1913 in Windham Tp., aged 52 years and 9 days, of an abscessed appendix.[319] His death record specifically names him as a son of Paul Flock and Mary Etta Pettit. He was living with his parents in 1881, when he was a laborer. He, then of Waterford married 30 July 1887 at Delhi,[320] Nettie Granger of Waterford, daughter of C.H. Granger (and Charity Elizabeth Beemer?). He is described as of Waterford at the time of his mother’s death in 1908, and was still there at his own death, the record of which calls him a farmer and gives his address as concession 8, lot 3. It is not known whether he had issue.
  3. Mary Ann Flock, born 1 August 1864 in Townsend Tp. (per her death record), died 9 December 1925 in Townend Tp., aged over 61 years, possibly in Scotland (the address of the undertaker), and buried at Waterford.[321] Her death record calls her a daughter of Paul Flock and Marion (sic) Pettit. She was living unmarried with her parents in 1881, when she was a dress-maker. She is called “eldest daughter of Paul Flock of Waterford” at the time of her marriage, on 26 April 1887 “at her father’s home,”[322] to Israel M. Haviland of Townsend, eldest son of the Rev. W.H. Haviland. They were of Boston at the time of her mother’s death in 1908. The informant of her own death was “R.F. Haviland, [of] Scotland, son.” Known issue (order uncertain):
    1. R.F. Haviland, of Scotland at his mother’s death in 1925.
    2. Ella E. Haviland, born 1888-89 (aged 22 in 1911). She married 29 March 1911 at Scotland, Oakland Tp., Brant Co.,[323] Charles Armstrong, born 1882-83 (aged 28 in 1911), son of James Armstrong, a railway worker, by the latter’s wife Lillie Taylor. At the time of their marriage, the record of which gives the full names of both sets of parents, the groom, a farmer, was of near Scotland, Oakland Tp., Brant Co., and the bride of near Boston, Townsend Tp., Norfolk Co.; the witnesses were William H. Haviland, of Boston, and Alice Armstrong, of Hamilton.
  4. Ella Flock, born 1868-69 (aged 12 in 1881). She was living with her parents in 1881. She married 5 April 1892 at Waterford,[324] Russel Slaght. They were of Townsend at the time of her mother’s death in 1908.

Unplaced Persons

We list here some unplaced persons who are found near known members of the present Flach family.

Johannes Flach, married 27 December 1787 in Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., N.J.,[325] Else Hoffman.

Catherine Flough, married before 1817, Abraham Winger. Their names are known to us only from a record of their son Jacob:

  1. Jacob Winger, born 1816-17 (aged 44 in 1861, aged 71 in 1888) in Bertie Tp., died 18 March 1888, aged 71 years, of pneumonia.[326] He married 2 April 1861 in Haldimand Co.,[327] Elizabeth Smelser, born 1839-40 (aged 21 in 1861) in Prussia, daughter of Valentine Smelser and Margaret Piper. At the time of their marriage he was aged 44 and of Rainham Township, and his wife aged 21 and of the same place; the record names his parents as Abraham Winger and Catherine Flough and hers as Valentine Piper and Margaret ____. In his death record he is called a farmer, and a Menonite.

____ Flock, died by the taking of the 1852 census; married before 1824, Susan ____, born 1798-99 (aged 53 in 1852) in the U.S., alive in 1852. The widow Susan Flock, aged 53 years, is found with her son William in the 1852 census of Barton Tp., Wentworth Co.[328] Known issue:

  1. William Flock, born around 1822 (aged 27 or 28 in 1852, aged 39 or 40 in 1861, aged 47 in 1871) in Canada West, alive in 1871 (no death record found). He married before 1854, Catherine Glover, born 24 January 1834 (per her death record) at Burlington, Ontario, died 28 March 1924, of old age, at the Aged Women’s Home, Hamilton, Ontario,[329] and buried 30 March following in Greenwood Cemetery, Burlington, daughter of Aaron Glover and Christina Kerns, both Canadian-born (who are named in her death record). He and his wife were living with his widowed mother in 1852, when he was a farmer. They are found in the 1861 census of Nelson Tp., Halton Co., which states no occupation for William Flock; either in the same household, or an adjecent one, is his wife’s widowed mother, and son Nicholas.[330] In 1871 William is called an innkeeper.[331] The informant of Catherine’s death was her son, Wesley Flock, of Hamilton. Unfortunately, the record gives no indication of the name of her husband, who was probably already deceased, and we have not found a record of this Wesley’s birth. Only known child:

    1. Wesley Flock, born 1852-54 (aged 7 or 8 in 1861, aged 18 in 1881). Listed immediately after him in the 1871 census is a Mary Flock, aged 20 years, who we suspect was his wife; their marital status is left blank, but unless she was his wife, she would have had to be a sister who was not recorded with their parents in 1861. We have not found him in the 1881 census.

Edward Flock, married Melinda Ackers, born 20 April 1829, daughter of Daniel Ackers and Elizabeth Fisher. According to Chambers they had a son, deceased by 1895, and a daughter Caroline.[332]

William Flock, of German ancestry, born in 1804-05 (aged 69 years at his death) in Canada, died 19 May 1874 at London, Ontario, of “debility of age.”[333] He married before 1831, Mary McAvitt, born in Ireland, died 1879 at London, Ontario. His death record calls him a carpenter, and a Wesleyan Methodist. A biographical notice of his son Christopher states of him and his wife:

William Flock was born in the City of Kingston, and removed to Toronto with its first settlers. At Toronto he conducted a general business (on Yonge street) for many years before and after the rebellion. His father was a German, but his mother was of Irish descent. The maiden name of our subject's mother [i.e. of William Flock’s wife] was McAvitt, and she (Mary) Irish by birth, but of Scotch ancestors. Mr. Flock died at London in 1875 [recte 1974], and Mrs. Flock died there in 1879.[334]

Issue:[335]

  1. Christopher William Flock, born 12 March 1831 at the town of York (now Toronto), alive in 1886. He married 17 November 1852, Helen Eliza Nelles, born 1 January 1829, daughter of William Robert Nelles and Mary Ann O’Reilly.[336] The biographical notice of him mentioned above reads, in part:
    Flock, Christopher William, St. Thomas, Ontario, licentiate of the Medical Board, Toronto, and M.D. of the University of Victoria College, M.C.P.S.O., was born in Toronto, then Little York, on the 12th March, 1831…. C.W. Flock was educated in Toronto, at James Hodgson’s Commercial and Classical academy, in the old market lane, now Colborne street, and received there a classical and mathematical education. In 1845 he began to study medicine in the Toronto School of Medicine, then called “Rolph’s” school; the late Hon. Dr. Rolph and Joseph Workman, M.D., of Toronto, were associated together in this enterprise. He passed the Medical Board in 1850, and commenced practice, having been the greater part of two years a private pupil of Dr. J. Workman’s, late superintendent of the Asylum. He was for many years coroner for the County of Halton, and made post mortem examinations on the bodies of the Donelly family, who were murdered in Biddulph township, a few years ago, and was Queen’s witness (medical) in the two trials of the notorious Jim Carroll for murder, held at the assizes in London, Ontario. Dr. Flock has two brothers in London, and one sister: Mrs. Dr. Morden: J.H. Flock, barrister; and J.R. Flock, M.D., coroner for London city. Our subject … is physician and surgeon to all the friendly and benevolent societies in the city of St. Thomas. Dr. Flock engaged in politics during the first few years of his practice, but he became disgusted after a time, and abandoned them for ever…. He sat for two years on the council board in the town of Oakville, and his career here was a zealous and useful one. He was brought up a Wesleyan Methodist, but many years ago joined the Episcopal church. He married on November 17th, 1852, Helen Eliza Nelles, grand-daughter of Colonel Robert Nelles, J.P., Grimsby, one of the oldest families in Canada. She is also a niece of Judge O’Reilly, Queen’s counsel, and master in chancery, Hamilton, Ontario. Her family is of German and Irish birth, with Scotch ancestry (Campbell) on one side. The O’Reilly family is also one of the oldest in the country. The issue of the marriage is eleven children, of whom six survive�two sons and four daughters. Dr. Flock has never engaged in any pursuit or enterprise unconnected with hia profession, but has led a truly professional and domestic life. He is not ambitious for political or other public distinctions, and has therefore stood aloof from party turmoil, with the exception noticed in his career. He has lived in Canada during his life, and here are his interests and his affections. He at one time engaged in the drug business in connection with his profession, but in 1866 the demands of his practice upon his time were so great that he was obliged to surrender the work of dispensing. He is a gentleman of very agreeable and courteous manners; he enjoys the repute of great professional skill, and his practice is a wide and profitable one. In social life he is a favourite, and his domestic life is an enviable one.[337]
  2. James Henry Flock, of London, barrister, born ca. 1834, died 1919.
  3. John R. Flock, M.D., coroner for the city of London, Ontario; born ca. 1833, died 1899. He married Sarah ____, born ca. 1831
  4. Mary M. Flock, born ca. 1842; married J.P. Morden, M.D., born ca. 1841.

Elizabeth Flock married before 1844, Joseph Dyckeman, called a carpenter in the marriage record of his son William. Known issue:

  1. William Sylvester Dyckeman, born 1843-44 (aged 70 in 1914). He married (2) (as her second husband) 4 March 1914 in Beverley Tp., Wentworth Co., by Methodist rites,[338] Polly (Cooley) Main, born (aged 62 in 1914), daughter of Preserved Cooley, a farmer, by the latter’s wife Huldah Beemer. At the time of their marriage, the record of which gives the full names of both sets of parents, the groom was a farmer, both parties were of Beverley, and both had been previously married; the witnesses were Docas M. Cornell, of Rockton, Ontario, and E.M. Cornell.
  2. (?) H. Dyckman, born 1844-45 (aged 17 in 1862) in Beverley Tp. She married 12 November 1862 in Wentworth Co., Richard Ryonalds, born 1836-37 (aged 25 in 1862) in England, son of William Ryonalds and Mary Thomas. At the time time of their marriage, the record of which gives the full names of both sets of parents, the groom was residing in Dumfries-shire, Scotland, and the bride in Beverley Tp. We have not seen the original of this record, a published transcription of which gives the names of the bride’s parents as George T.H. Dyckman and Elizabeth Flock.

Andrew Flock, married 27 January 1858 in Stillwater Tp., Sussex Co., New Jersey (IGI), Margaret A. Louise.



Appendix: The Patrey Family bible record

The family bible record of Wilhelm Petrie (or Patrey) and his wife Elizabeth Flach is catalogued as record no. 5129, Bible and Family Records, Special Collections and University Archives, Alexander Library, 169 College Avenue, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ (see the calendar at Genealogical Society of New Jersey, Bible and Family Records, available online at http://www.rootsweb.com/~njgsnj/FR5000_5199.htm). We are greatly indebted to Brad Hurley for obtaining and making available online a copy of this record, which consists of several parts:

Below, the first and third of the above sources is each transcribed in its entirety. The second is so erroneous that its inclusion here could have no possible value, and a new translation by the present writer has been substituted. All explanatory content in square brackets has been supplied by me (J.B.D.), and I alone am responsible for any misinterpretations.

The references in the old German bible record to the “Feller Church” are conceivably a mistake for “Falckner’s Church.” The first minister to the evangelical congregation of Oldwick was Justus Falckner (served 1714-1723), who was eventually succeeded by William Anthony Graff (served 1775-1809).[339] The references to a pastor Graff in 1777 and 1780, would fit such a timeline.

The Eighteenth-Century bible record in German

Notes

1John Blythe Dobson, “The German Origin of Andreas Flach of Flocktown, German Valley, Roxbury Township, Morris County, New Jersey,” The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey 92 (2017): 131-135.
2In the Patrey family bible record, the birth record for her daughter Elisabeth reads (in translation): “1749. Is born Liesabetha Flachin and is joined with Wilihm [sic] Petrie … and her father and mother were Andreas Flach and … Anna Maria Schülerin.” The -in ending on Schül in this record is an indication of a feminine form in Palatine German; it is not a true part of the surname and henceforth, except in direct quotation, the -in ending occuring on the feminine forms of surnames will be disregarded.
3The earlier registers of baptisms, marriages, and deaths (these last are designated deaths rather than burials) do not align in their dates, and apparently have no agreed-upon volume-numbering. Both registers used here are found on FHL microfilm no. 1,189,667. The register for 1660-1723 (here called “Register A”) is simply labelled “Kayler Kirchen-Buch” on the cover, while that for 1723-1763 (here called “Register B”) has a title-page reading “Tauft- Hochzeit- und Tooten-Buch deren beiden Evangelischen Gemeinden Kehl und Sundheim angefangen im Jahr Christi MDCCXXIII” (Baptism-, Marriage-, and Death-Register of the two Evangelical congregations Kehl and Sundheim, begun in 1723 A.D.). In each register, baptisms, marriages, and deaths are separately paginated. We do not always agree with the transcriptions of these records in the database “Baden, Germany, Lutheran Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1502-1985,” at Ancestry.com, published in 2016. For example, some of the entries incorrectly include genitive endings.

17The record, written in a curious mixture of German and Latin, describes the groom as “Andreas Flach, wylen Matthiæ Flachen burgers alhier [Sohn],” indicating that Flachen should be regarded as a genitive form. Accordingly, the -en ending on this surname, which occurs in the church registers only in contexts where the genitive would be appropriate, is not transcribed below. This ending is incorrectly included as part of the surname in the transcription of this entry in ”Baden, Germany, Lutheran Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1502-1985” at Ancestry.com.

This Georg Schütterlin, as well as some of the other persons considered herein, is treated in the excellent “Mündel Web Site” by Claus Mündel at MyHeritage.com, and the evidence for his identity will not be considered in detail here. He does not appear to have been married at Kehl, and was ostensibly still single in 1749. Although Anna Maria Schütterlin had a brother named Georg, he died young, and cannot have been the passenger of 1749.

33In the “Flock” memoir in Chambers Anthony is called “John Shangle,” but see the treatment of his own family, pp. 478-9, for the correct identification.

A copy of this record was sent to us by Marietta Pickell before we had seen “Marriage Records of the Zion Lutheran Church at Oldwick,” Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, 40 (1965):10ff.; a copy of this transcription formerly available online at http://members.aol.com/njdata/oldwick.html can still (November 2012) be found in the Internet Archive. Zion Lutheran Church is the oldest surviving Lutheran congregation in New Jersey.

55See Chambers, Early Germans of New Jersey, p. 483. He married (2) 22 June 1817 in Sussex Co. (Sussex County, New Jersey, Marriages, p. 208), Susannah Harden, who survived him; Chambers calls her “a widow” on their marriage but this would not seem to be borne out by their marriage record.
56It may have been made much earlier than this date, as it lists as if still alive his son Martin, who is said by Chambers to have died in 1843.
57Chambers gives his dates as 1726-1795, so presumably he was the “Martin Swartzwaller” of Hardwick, Sssec Co., whose will, dated 24 March and proved 6 October 1795, is abstracted in Calendar of New Jersey Wills, 8:350, even though Johannes Swartzwelder is not name din this will.

69Warren Merring, The Mering Family (1929?, preface dated 1926), p. 30, quotes the following “account copied from the records of the Coss family bible”:
John Peter Coos born June 30, 1747, married Anna Maria Wyker, born January 30, 1742. To them were born the following: John Philip Coss, born February 20, 1771, married Catherine Flack … [and others].
The text of the Mering genealogy continues, “Peter Coss was a son of George Coss, a soldier of the Revolutionary War [!]. Peter Coss lived in Frankford Township on a farm which he and Maria his wife deed to Peter Coss, Jr., March 14, 1814…. Anna Maria Wyker, wife of Peter Coss, was a daughter of Philip Wyker, a German by birth, the first settler by the name in this section. He settled in Frankford Township in 1764 and located about a mile south of what is known as Wykertown. He had previously lived in Morris County….”

94Death registration of Lydia [Carlile] Patry, from a copy supplied by Mike Jones.
95She appears as Christina in the Patrie family bible, as Christiana in the settlement of her father’s estate, and as Christian in her husband’s will. She is called Christina by Chambers and by J.D. Flack, but Mary by the Bottings’ informants, Mrs. Charles Spiece and Frank Hansel.

The Bottings were disinclined to accept the statement of one of their informants, that she was born 1747 and died 1818, which suspiciously coincide with her husband’s vital dates.

98On various documents, his name is noted as Andreas Henseler, Andrew Henseller, Andreas Hensel, and Andrew Hanselar. Their marriage record refers to him as “I. Andreas Hensel,”; the “I.” presumably standing for a name beginning with J, such as Johann or Jacob (the capital letters I and J are typically indistinguishable in eighteenth-century German script). There is no entry for this family in Chambers. We are much indebted to John Beatty <beatty0007@telus.net> for supplying this account, which represents only a small part of his researches. One of his correspondents was Brenda Young.
