CRAZY CRATE JP 74 BOOK 7: The Pennsylvania
Genealogical Magazine.  Volume 37, No.
3,  1992.
  Philadelphia, PA:  The Genealogical

Society of Pennsylvania.  1992.   123
pages.  Softcover.  Note: ex-library copy with
label and bar code.  The binding is tight and the
pages are clean. Articles in this issue
cover:  The Current State of Genealogical
Publishing. (3 pages)   The author indicates that
despite the burgeoning appreciation for a
professional approach to genealogy, there
persists a gulf between the growing
professionalism of  many genealogists and the
continuing amateurishness of too many
genealogical publishers and publishing houses who
are only in the business to make money.  He
discusses the need for historians to have
accurate records and archivist's concerns for
preserving materials.  He regrets that, far too
often, the reader is not told the qualifications
of the transcriber, the repository of the
original record, of the methodology used in the
edition.    He also takes to task publishers who
reprint older materials but do not indicate the
grave mistakes made in many of those books.  He
cites Hinshaw's six volume Encyclopedia of
American Quaker Genealogy, J. Thomas Scharf's
History of Delaware, 1609 - 1888 and G. H. B.
Turner's Some Record of Sussex County, Delaware
as examples of works with serious errors and
flaws that have prompted professional researchers
to rely instead on the manuscript sources
utilized by the authors and compilers.  He
discusses the need for modern indexes for books
written in the nineteenth century, and much
more.    The Marriage Register of Pennsylvania,
1683 - 1696.  (47 pages.)  As Part of his many
plans for colonization of Pennsylvania, William
Penn, in May 1682 issued a proposed code of
laws  for the government of his new
province.  One of the provision in that code
provided for civil registration of all marriages
to be solemnized in the colony.  This proposal
developed into the Register General's Marriage
Register for the years 1683 through 1696.  The
information in this article documents the 54
marriages that were celebrated during this time
period, the location of the marriage, the names
of the bride, groom and in many cases, the names
of the witnesses.   A Guide to Pennsylvania
Soldiers in the Mexican War. (11pages) Continued

 

from volume 37.  Each entry in these abstracts contains the soldier's name, his age at enlistment, his
company, his place of enlistment, and any
pertinent remarks found in the original records.
This article continues information on the Second
Regiment, Pennsylvania Infantry, and covers the
names Jacob Hoffer through William Kutz.  Announcements, Book Reviews, and   53
pages listing the Materials Received by the  

Genealogical Society in 1991.   Price:  $3.00

The Bressler/Pressler Family of
Niederhochstadt/Pfalz and Berks County,
Pennsylvania.  26 pages.  In 1749 two Pressler
families immigrated to Pennsylvania from
Niederhochstadt/Pfalz.  The children of Hans
Georg Pressler, baptized at Niederhochstadt, came
to the colonies on the Lydia, taking the Oath of
Allegiance at Philadelphia on 19 October
1749.  Their Pennsylvania records are confused
easily with the children of Johannes Veltin
Pressler, also registered in the church records
at Niederhochstadt, but not recorded in the Ship
Lists as enumerated by Strassburger and
Hinke.  This article aims to lessen the confusion
of the two emigrating Pressler families by
presenting a four-generation account of the
descendants of Hans Georg Pressler.
German Qualification for Naturalization in
Pennsylvania in 1728.  7 pages.   As early as
1717 the Commissioners of Property, agents of the
proprietor for the sale of land in Pennsylvania,
advised the Palatines of Conestoga and Pequea to
seek naturalization because of the "Disadvantage
they were under by being born aliens, and
therefore their Children could not inherit nor
they themselves convey to others the Lands they
purchase".   It was not, however, until February
1727/28 that Martin Mylen and Wendall Bowman of
the "Congregation of the Menists" began the
process of naturalization by petitioning the
Chester County Court of Quarter Mennonites be
allowed "to sign and subscribe the oaths of
supremacy and allegiance"  This article provides
the names of the Mennonites who subscribed to the
Oath.   A Guide to Pennsylvania Soldiers in the
Mexican War.      (19pages).   Continued from
volume 37.  Each entry in these abstracts
contains the soldier's name, his age at
enlistment, his company, his place of enlistment,
and any pertinent remarks found in the original
records. This article continues information on
the Second Regiment, Pennsylvania Infantry, and
covers the names Lewis Ladouceur through  Lewis
Myers.    Book reviews.  A seventeen page index
covers over 6,000 names found in volume 37.  Price:  $3.00

CRAZY CRATE JP 74 BOOK 9:  The Pennsylvania

1,  1993.
  Philadelphia, PA:  The Genealogical

Society of Pennsylvania.  1993.   96
pages.  Softcover. Note: ex-library copy with
label and bar code.  The binding is tight and the
pages are clean. Articles in this issue cover:
Establishing the German Origins of Several
Northampton County Settlers  35 pages.  The
continual quest for that illusive ancestor or
piece of missing information frequently produces
surprising results.  In this instance the
illusive ancestor was Johannes Repscher,
progenitor of the Repsher family in Northampton
County, Pennsylvania.  The missing information
was his place of origin.  The surprising result
was identifying the German origins of several
other early Northampton County settlers.  The
Repscher family in Northampton County descends
from Johannes Repscher who settled in the county
a few years before the beginning of  the
Revolutionary War.  This article provides
information on Conrad Ihrig/Errich,Ihrich, Johan
Peter Seip/Seipp. John Adam Sandt/Sand, Adam
Breidinger/Breitinger and Johannes
Repscher/Rebscher/Robscher/Repsher  A Petition to
King Charles II from Kent County, Delaware.  8
pages.  In the spring of 1684 the Three Lower
Counties of New Castle, Kent, and Sussex upon
Delaware, the future state of Delaware, were in a
condition of political turmoil s agents of the
proprietors of both Pennsylvania and Maryland,
respectively William Penn and Charles Calvert,
third Lord Baltimore, vied for control of the
territory and the allegiance of the
settlers.  Ultimately William Penn, by an order
of the English Privy Council of 13 November 1684,
gained control of the region.  Penn also gained
at least a qualified support from the
inhabitants.  One of the byproducts of the contest
between the two colonial proprietors is the
document presented here, a petition from 42
freeholders of Kent County, Delaware to King
Charles II.  This article provides a background
on the conflict.  The petitioners held land in
the area disputed between Penn and Lord
Baltimore.  They had been given land grants by
Penn and were concerned that if the King sided
with Lord Baltimore they would lose their land,
so they petitioned the king to allow Penn to have
the land which he had sold to them.  A Guide to
Pennsylvania Soldiers in the Mexican War.  (6
pages)  Continued from volume 37.  Each entry in
these abstracts contains the soldier's name, his
age at enlistment, his company, his place of
enlistment, and any pertinent remarks found in
the original records. This article continues
information on the Second Regiment, Pennsylvania
Infantry, and covers the names William Nalton
through  William Quail.  Materials Received by

CRAZY CRATE JP 74 BOOK 10:  The Pennsylvania
Genealogical Magazine.  Volume 43, No.
2,  Fall./Winter 2003.  Philadelphia, PA:  The

Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania.  2003.   96
pages.  Softcover. Note: ex-library copy with
label and bar code.  The binding is tight and the
pages are clean. Articles in this issue
cover:  Krumbhaar-Turnbull Bible Records,
Philadelphia.  7 pages.  The Krumbhaar Bible is
unusual in many respects.  First, although most
bible records are completely lacking in locality
information, almost every entry in the Krumbhaar
bible includes the place of the event, which can
lead to other source material.  Events included
in this bible took place over a wide geographic
range.  Most happened in Philadelphia, but there
are also records of events at Leipzig, London,
Hamburg, New Orleans, Washington, Harrisburg, and
Cazenovia, New York.  The amount of detail in
each entry is rare.  Most notations about
baptisms and weddings include both the name of
the church and the officiating clergyman.  Birth
entries are annotated with street addresses.  The
number of entries, and the number of generations
covered far exceeds the normal Bible
record.  Using only the entries fro these bible
pages, a genealogist can compile a complete story
of this family for almost two centuries.  The
bible also includes events for a non-family
member, specifically a household servant who had
been born a slave.   Emigrants from Frommern,
Weilheim, and Waldstatten, Wurttemberg, 1750 and
1754.  4 pages.   The emigration from German
villages was occasionally so large in number as
to prompt separate mention in the church
book.  In this case, the minister seems to have
first entered the departures in 1754 and then
entered information about those departing in
1750.  Information is provided on 12
people.  Information is provided in German from
the original records and translated into
English.    Tombstone Inscriptions by Balthasar
Orth, Lebanon County.  5 pages.  Business records
are often ignored by genealogists.  However, some
businesses provide great genealogical
information.  This article contains information
from Gotlieb Orth and Nathaniel Trehwhite,
tombstone carvers.  Information is provided for
73 tombstones, including name of deceased, and
sometimes date of birth or death, age or relation
to another family member.  Officers of the Courts
of Oyer and Terminer, Bedford, Berks, Bucks,
Chester, Cumberland, Lancaster, Philadelphia and
York Counties.  13 pages. The Courts of Oyer and
Terminer contain the annual appointments of
officers of the court such as juries, constables,
and justices of the peace.  This article contains
the first year of the appointments for the
counties of Bedford (1772), Berks (1767), Bucks
(1774), Chester (1760), Cumberland (1768),
Lancaster (1761), Philadelphia (1763), and York
(1763).    Tombstones in St. Peter's Roman
Catholic Cemetery, Philadelphia.  39
pages.  Although there were two Catholic
congregations in Pennsylvania in the colonial
period, legislated requirements effectively
restricted German Catholic migration directly
into Pennsylvania prior to the American
Revolution.  Most Catholics came as part of the
general European migration into Philadelphia in

Thank you, John, for a look at Pennsylvania.  And thank you, readers, for reading this newsletter.  Underline in this issue the county information you would like to have.  I am trying to find a way to make each one of these individual county or surname entries available on a page-by-page basis.  I will get back to you on that in a later crate.  Pat from YOGS
