Sorry to take so long to respond but I was out of town over the weekend. I will be happy to share what information I have, and while I believe it is accurate, most this information comes from my mother's records which did not record sources, especially for immediate family information. Her grandmother (Mary M. Canfield (3 May 1854-13 Mar 1945) was married to Samuel D. Young (6 Mar 1846-8 Jun 1926). Samuel D. was the son of William (b. ca. 1802 VA.) and Sarah (b. ca. 1810 VA.) Young. He had 5 brothers and sisters—Margaret (b. ca. 1834), Archibald (b. ca. 1836), Delila (b. ca. 1838), Francis (b. ca. 1841), and Gulyann (b. ca. 1828). All appear to have been born in Hampshire County, VA and I think there is a reference to the family in the 1850 census. In WV, Hampshire County was broken up into Morgan, Mineral and Hampshire Counties. It appears the family lived in what is now Morgan County close to Beckley Springs, WV. However, most of the family apparently moved around western West Virginia and western Maryland. As for Archibald's wife, my mother's records are clear that the name was Mary Connelly and she also was born in VA.
I'm sure they are related. Good luck and sorry I can't be of more help. If you have anything you think I might be interested in, please forward it.

Hi Patty,

I saw on the web site http://www.rootsweb.com/~pawashin/lookup.html that you are offerring to do lookups in the book "NEWSPAPER ABSTACTS OF ALLEGANY AND WASHINGTON COUNTIES 1811-1815, Family Line Publications, F. Edward Wright ". I would greatly appreciate of you could check for a James Clark who lived near or in Cumberland Maryland and according to Revolutionary War pension records, may have died 10 June 1815. He married a Barbara on 25 December 1784 according to the same pension records.

Thank you very much in advance for your time and trouble,

Plus is should be noted that the first born female was named Mary, the given name of the mother in Robert S. Wakefield's article. Although it should also be noted a later daughter was names Sarah.

I went with the data of Robert S. Wakefield.

Some have assumed this reference includes information on Thomas Ross being in the Cape May County Militia in 1793.

But I noted the following from the book. A militia list for Cape May County was not available. The county tax ratable list was used as a subsitute but one can't be sure it would have matched a militia list. The following entry is found:

1793 county tax ratable
Cape May - Lower Township
Thomas Ross

Since Thomas Ross would have been 38 in 1793 I choose not to note him as being in a peace time militia since he would have been rather old for that and with a family.

He is also not listed in "Official register of the officers and men of New Jersey in the revolutionary war
by New Jersey". Adjutant-General's Office; Stryker, William Scudder, 1838-1900

But he would have been prime age (20 to 28) and unmarried to have fought in the Revolutionary War (1775–1783). I just have not found any evidence yet.

Dear Mr. Lechthaler,
I think I may have solved your dead-ends. I hope.

[Metz info cut out of this copy of email]

Now on to ....
Dead End #2 The Friedel's
Since we know that John C. Friedel Jr. father is John C. Sr. I searched mostly for the mom. I found a land record that shows John C. Friedel Jr. as the administrator of the estate of Magdalena Friedel and concerns a property on Durham Street. Okay, so with this I was able to get a death year and found her on the mdvitalrec.net web site. Once again, her death certificate should have all the information needed to get her maiden name and where she is buried. (There is also a case in the orphan's court record at the Archives concerning her property. It may have more information on the family and her husband) .That will lead us to John. Sr.'s death date and obituary. Magdalena is listed as a widow when she dies in 1891 and also as a widow when she buys the home on Durham Street in 1890. I have attached to this e-mail her death notices from the Sun and the one in the German newspaper the Deutsche Correspondent.
The source information for both is as follows:
Baltimore Sun May 23, 1891 page4
Deutsche Correspondent May 23, 1891 page 2 . This one is in german but the translation is exactly how the Baltimore Sun reads.


The last time I see John Friedel Sr. listed in the Baltimore City directories was around 1886. So I once again checked the mdvitalrec.net and found a John C. Friedel dying on January 29, 1888 certificate # a5942. WOOHOO....but it wasn't John Sr. It was John C. Friedel III. John Jr. and Kate had a son who died at the age of 5 weeks. Attached is his death notice from the Deutsche Correspondent January 30, 1888 page 2.
The translation is as follows.
On Saturday, the 29 of January at 12:50 in the morning (or a.m.), John C. Friedel, 5 weeks old, young son of Kate and John C. Friedel Jr.

I have sent copies of the death notices and land records to you. If you have any questions give me a call and when you get the cemetery information I suggest calling them to get plot information. I'm sure you'll find other family members.
Sincerely,

The best I can make out is Magdalena (or Magdaline) Phabematerin/Phalematerin (now don't laugh) . I know the last name is way off, but that's the best I can guess. He has no brothers or sisters that I know of. I have no clue if his parents married in their native Germany or after immigration, but they may have married about 1857 (John C.

Any brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, etc listed in an obit will give me another straw to grasp. A marriage listing would be even better, although I have no specific dates when either set of parents may have married.

I realize it's not practical to handle all the requests you must continually get and I feel guilty asking this as is.

17 ** Note **

Their appears to be quite a bit of controversy about from where William Ripley and family originated. Briefly, one camp says William was born 1588 in Wramplingham, Norfolk, England. The other camp that says William was born 14 May 1598 in Ripon, Yorkshire, England. Both provide births of children John, Abraham, Sarah, and Mary. Quite a bit of information exists supporting both camps. I cannot conclusively conclude which camp is correct. But based on the following, I have used the William born 1588 in Wramplingham , Norfolk, England case.

case William was born 1588 in Wramplingham, Norfolk, England
(information from online LDS Wymondham, Norfolk church books I have found):
Mary 6 Sep 1616
John 1 Sep 1821
Abraham 9 May 1924
Sarah 28 Oct 1627
[no other children births in Wymondham, Norfolk church book]

case William was born 14 May 1598 in Ripon, Yorkshire, England
(information from http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~westxan/4122.html):
Mary Ripley b: 10 Jan 1639/40 in Moulton Near Spalding, Lincoln, England
John Ripley b: BEF. 14 Aug 1621 in Moulton Near Spalding, Lincoln, England (bapt October 9, 1625)
Abraham Ripley b: 9 May 1624 in Ingleby Greenhow, Yorkshire, England
Sarah Ripley b: 25 Oct 1627 in Moulton Near Spalding, Lincoln, England
[five other children noted born in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire]

I find it too coincidental to be true that two Abraham's were born on the exact same date in two different places. Ditto Sarah in two places within 3 days of the same date. This leads me to believe that one of these cases data is incorrect or mistaken. It's just too coincidental. I have seen the Wymondham, Norfolk church book myself, the other case I have not attempted to verify the church books cited as sources.

I also find the William was born 14 May 1598 in Ripon, Yorkshire, England case a bit unlikely since it notes children born in Lincoln, Lincoln, Lincoln, York, York, Lincoln, York, Lincoln, Lincoln counties in date of birth order. Back in those days I find the continual movement unlikely.

I have also seen Wramplingham church records for the birth of William in 1588 as well as his brothers and sisters. Again, I have not attempted to verify the church records for the William was born 14 May 1598 in Ripon, Yorkshire.

From Hingham MA records we know about William Ripley children John, Sarah and Abraham. We know when they married and/or had children, therefore we can get a gut feel for about when they were born based on average age at marriage. We also know the families on-board the Diligent were said to come from the Hingham Norfolk area. William Ripley was said to have come from Wymondham, Norfolk. Hingham, Wramplingham, and Wymondham are all within a few miles of each other.

Their are Norfolk England and Hingham MA marriages between the Ripley families and the families of Beal and Hobart. The families of Beal and Hobart also appear to have also come from the Hingham, Wramplingham, and Wymondham Norfolk England area. From my experience it is quite common for families from the old country to stick together and inter-marry in the new country. This also lends credibility to the William was born 1588 in Wramplingham, Norfolk, England case.

In the Wymondham, Norfolk parish records baptism are found for a Mary, John, Abraham, and Sarah, all children of William Ripley. The baptism dates jive pretty well against the approximate birth dates based on Hingham MA marriage and children baptism dates. Therefore, my best guess is these children and the William in Wymondham, Norfolk who was their father comprise the same family that came to Hingham MA on board the Diligent. The great fire of Jun 1615 in Wymondham, Norfolk destroyed earlier parish record making tracking further back in time for Wymondham (i.e. William Ripley marriage(s)) conjecture.

Based on the above, I have used the William was born 1588 in Wramplingham, Norfolk, England case. I do think their were multiple William Ripley's and their also may very well be a connection back to Ripon, Yorkshire.

These two webpages pretty much sum up the two cases mentioned above (countless others can be found in case these two disappear):

The town of Hingham was dubbed "Bare Cove" by the first colonizing English in 1633, but two years later was incorporated as a town under the name "Hingham".[5] The land on which Hingham was settled was deeded to the English by the Wampanoag sachem Wompatuck in 1655.[6] The town was within Suffolk County from its founding in 1643 until 1793; Norfolk County from 1793 to 1803; and Plymouth County from 1803 to the present.

From "A Delusion Of Satan: The Full Story Of The Salem Witch Trials" by Frances Hill, pages 202

The three accused found guilty were Elizabeth Johnson of Andover, Mary Post of Rowley and Sarah Wardwell, wife of Samuel Wardwell, who had been hanged in September. According to Calef the first two of these women were "the most senseless and ignorant creatures that could be found." Elizabeth Johnson's grandfather was no less forth­right in his view of his granddaughter's mental abilities, saying she was "simplish at the best." Johnson had made a rambling confession at her examination in August and perhaps repeated it now. Sarah Wardwell probably also repeated her former confession since her husband had been hanged as a result of going back on his. The jury concluded that if anyone was guilty of witchcraft these three were. And, after all, if no one was guilty of witchcraft, why were these trials even taking place? Stoughton signed a warrant for the three women's "speedy execu­tion."

It is ironic that at this late date those who claimed innocence were acquitted while confessors were condemned. Clearly Stoughton had nothing on principle against sending confessing witches to their deaths. It had been a matter of expediency to save them.

Happily, however, these three did not die. Sir William reprieved them. He also reprieved five other accused witches sentenced earlier by the Court of Oyer and Terminer, having been "informed by the King's Attorney General" that the evidence against all these people was no different from that against many acquitted. When word of this was brought to the Superior Court, now sitting at Charlestown, William Stoughton was "enraged and filled with passionate anger" and walked off the bench. He shouted furiously, "We were in a way to have cleared the land. . . . who it is that obstructs the course of justice I know not; the Lord be merciful to the country."

German Calvary Chapman #875 (2.John 2, 1.John 1) b. Au g 13 1 817, Cabell Co ., VA , m. Feb . 15 1838, in Cabell
Co., VA /WV, Catherine Hamrick #876, b. Jul 12 1820, d. Apr 17 1883. German died Jul 5 1892, buried: Simmons Cem., Hancock Co. IN.

We have no proof or strong evidence that German was a child in this family. He was at the right place at the right
time to fit (circumstances) but the 1820 census does not support the idea.

The following is from Virginia Small- written in 1995 & 1997 : "According to a record from an old family Bible,
my maternal great grandfather (German or Jerman) Calvary Chapman (B. 13 Aug. 1 817 Cabell Co ., W. Virginia
married Catherine Hamrick ( B. 1 2 Ju ly 18 20) (am not sure she was from Cabell Co ., but she was from the area, I'm told). They were married in Cabel Co., W. Virginia 15 February 1838 by David Harbour, Sr. according to a copy of
their wedding license. I am quite certain that German Chapman was from Milton, W. Virginia area. I have been
told that perhap s his father's name w as John. T here is a record from the book, "Chapman , Jolly, Rayburn" that there
was a John Chapman w ho married a Molly in approximately 1808 with Children, Polly, Phebe, Martha, Cynthia,
Tazewell and Minta. These records were taken from "All Births in Virginia 8-6-1850

In 1845 German and Catherine left Cabell Co., W. Va. via the Ohio River to Cincinnati and then to Cleveland,
Indiana (near Greenfield, Indiana) where they both lived until their deaths. German died 5-July 1892 and Catherine
died 12 A pril 1883 ."

Children married and died in Gräfenhausen after death of Franz Christoph Schumacher so my guess would be Justina stayed.in Gräfenhausen also although I found no records to prove that.

34 1579 baptism and 1600 marriage record have her given name as Baltburga.
1603 & 1605 children were baptized with Baltburga as the mother.
1607, 1609, 1611, 1612 1615, 1617 children were baptized with Waldburga as the mother.

I could find no Waldburga marriages between 1605 and 1607, so I don't think Baltburga and Jacob remarried a Waldburga.

I can only assumed the given name morphed with time.

I went with Baltburga since that's the name she was baptized and married with.

My logic for the assumption that John Albert Miller is really Rudolph Albert van Swinderen.

The tombstone for John A. Miller has him born 24 Dec 1824.
Various census records have him born in Holland.
From 2007 to 2017 I searched for additional information on the ancestors of John A. Miller with no success.

In Jan 2017 I was in contact with Dave Schaaf (see email archives for entire message thread). Dave Schaaf is connected to John Miller via his son Albert Frederick Miller (b1853). His great-grandmother is Eva Mank (nee Miller). He conveyed the following:
In terms of the conversation that I had with my great-grandmother, it was brief, at my house, and not at the time that she passed the photo of her father's family to me that you've recently seen. My mother repeated the information that her grandmother had passed along to her through her life - so I knew the name "van Swinden" through most of my growing-up years. My mother always pronounced the "van" portion as "von" - but what's interesting is that that would be exactly how the Dutch pronounce the prefix "van" - speaking the "a" as a soft "o." So what's carrying through in time is the pronunciation of the name. My great-grandmother confirmed the fact that her grandfather had been "born in Holland," and spelled his family name. She also told me that her family had communication with the Dutch family until about 1900. She alluded to some falling-out that John Miller had with his Dutch family, but I have no details.

Based on this information I started poking around and found in the book
"Genealogie van het geslacht van Swinderen, de Marees van Swinderen, en de Rehden van Swinderen, Volume 1" by C.J. Polvliet, 1889 - 58 pages
at https://books.google.com/books?id=1nloAAAAcAAJ

on page 35
2. Rudolf Albert van Swinderen, geboren te Appingedam 24 December 1824, woont te Balti­more en is directeur eener rijkswerf aldaar.
translation:
2. Rudolf Albert van Swinderen, born in Appingedam on December 24, 1824, lives in Baltimore and is director of the State shipyard there.

This book also notes that Rudolf Albert van Swinderen is the son of Evert Joost van Swinderen.

This led to the possibility that John Albert Miller is really Rudolph Albert van Swinderen since the birthdate is the same, born in the Netherlands, and that he worked in Baltimore. But this alone is only circumstantial evidence.

Using Ancestry DNA I was able to find DNA kits for at least 7 Miller cousins (See DNA.xls spreadsheet).
A DNA kit (aka R.N. (managed by aussie04952)) was also found for Robert Nieboer in Australia whose great-grandfather is Evert Joost van Swinderen.

This R.N. kit has shared matches with:
A kit for Abigail Hurlburt (connected to John Miller via his daughter Matilda Miller/Lechthaler)
A kit for Kathleen Graham (connected to John Miller via his son Albert Frederick Miller)
A kit for Thomas Elliott (connected to John Miller via his daughter Anna Miller/Elliott)
Three other kits for people connected to John Miller via his son Albert Frederick Miller.

Based on these DNA shared matches, I have concluded that John Albert Miller is the same person as Rudolph Albert van Swinderen.

Consider the following regarding John Miller's death:

**Der Deutsche Correspondent, 19 June, 1893 page 2:
am 16. juni in New York J. A. Miller, 60 jahr alt.
Google translated:
On the 16 June in New York J. A. Miller, 60 years old.

**Der Deutsche Correspondent, 19 June, 1893 page 6:
Gestern abend starb im "Baltimore Universität Hospital" John Miller, der am vorigen Donnerstag wegen angeblicher Betrunkenheit im östlichen Distrikt verhaftet, aber kurz darauf nach dem hospital geschafft worden war. Er erlangte bis zu seinem Tode das Bewusstsein nicht zurück.
Google translated:
Last night died in the "Baltimore University Hospital" John Miller, who was arrested last Thursday for alleged drunkenness in the eastern district, but had been made ??shortly after the hospital. He did not win until his death back consciousness.
Google translated with my corrections
Last night died in the "Baltimore University Hospital" John Miller, who was arrested last Thursday for alleged drunkenness in the eastern district, but was taken ??shortly after to the hospital. He did not regain consciousness until his death.

**Tombstone enscription:
Capt John A. Miller
Beloved Husband Of
Margaret C. Miller
Born Dec 24 1824
Died Jun 18 1893

**Baltimore Cemetery said he was buried on the 22nd, per 9/24/7 Telcon.

- Both 19 Jun Der Deutsche Correspondent are included in images for John Miller.
- The date of death for the drunk John Miller matches the date of death on tombstone.
- A 18 Jun Maryland death certificate (A-58189/CR 48,093) notes John Miller being born in Baltimore, 65yrs old, single, occupation Cooper. The 20 Jun 1893 Baltimore Sun obit (page 4) has John Miller who died 18 Jun, with his funeral from his residence 420 South Ann Street on 20 Jun. Both the burial date and residence address do not jive with John Albert Miller..
- A request for a New York death certificate yielded nothing.
- Since he was a mariner, it is plausible he could have died in New York while on a voyage and if he died on the 16th his body might not have gotten back to Baltimore to be buried until the 22nd.

So, it seems equally possible he died in New York on the 16th or Baltimore on the 18th.
I choose Baltimore on the 18th since it matches the tombstone.

A John Cowan that died in Chester Co. SC in 1837 names a child William in his will. Trees can be found stating this William was born 1789, close to the 1850 census birth year of 1787 for William A. Cowan. The same trees state he married a Martha McFadden.

I have eliminated this John Cowan as being William A. Cowan's father since the John Cowan estate expenditures contain the entry "28 Nov 1838 - By cash paid John Simpson for coffin for Wm Cowan $2.00". This infers to me that the William, son of John Cowan in Chester Co. SC died about 28 Nov 1838. Therefore, I have eliminated John Cowan of Chester SC as the father of William A. Cowan.

An Andrew Cowan died about 7 Apr 1789 in Abbeville Co. 96th district. He had a son William mentioned in his will, but no Joseph. The will does not infer William was a minor that required a guardian.

I have eliminated Andrew Cowan as being William A. Cowan's father because it appears the William Cowan mentioned in the will was not a minor plus the fact Joseph was not mentioned either.
