Notes for Johan George (Hans Jurg) Hanselman:

ADMINISTRATION of GEORGE HANSELMAN estate, Douglas Township, Berks County

dated February 10, 1792. Administrator is son-in-law Christian Steinruck.

 

Strassburger; Ralph Beaver PENNSYLVANIA GERMAN PIONEERS lists Hans Jerg Hanselmann arriving on the Ship "Chesterfield" September 2, 1749. There is also a listing for a Hans Jurg Heyselman arriving on the "Eastern Branch" on October 3, 1753. There is considerable confusion between the two Georges both of whom are listed as George Hanselman and both of whom, at least for a time, settled in Berks County, PA.

 

[Berks County Administrations, Orphans Court 4-164, March 26, 1792] The petition of "George Hanselman, eldest son and heir of George Hanselman, late of the Township of Douglass in this County, yeoman deceased, Setting forth that his said father died intestate leaving a widow to wit Christina and issue Six children to wit: the Petitioner, Rosina the wife of Henry Hauck, Anna Maria the wife of Christian Zigler, Barbara the wife of Christian Stever [sic], Rachel the wife of John Giley and Magdalena the wife of Christian Yorgy. And that the said intestate died seized in his demesne as {   } of and in a certain  messuage or tenement and two contiguous tracts of land situate in Douglass Township aforesaid one of them adjoining to land of William Brunner, Herman Reiffschneider, GEORGE STEINROCK and Henry Yorgy containing fifty acres more or less, the other adjoining the above tract, Bernard Honneter, Joseph Schweidel and William Brunner containing twenty one acres and thirty three perches with the appurtances and there for praying the Court to award and request to make partition of the said messuage or tenement and two tracts of land...".

     The Orphans Court ordered an evaluation of the property by twelve honest citizens including which was done under authority of the County Sheriff Philip Kremer. The citizens were: GEORGE GRESH, Berhard honnetter, John Nagle, John Keely, Solomon Roads, Jonathan Roths, Jacob Keely, Daniel Reed, Henry Egle, Philip Levengood, Valentine Fisher and John Rohmich. The valuation was determined to be two hundred and eighty pounds in gold or silver money current in Pennsylvania. The panel determined that the property could not be partitioned for fair distribution and George Hanselman presented surety to guarantee payment of shares to all the heirs in two payments, the first payment  within twelve months and the second payment due after the widow's death.

 

This is an important document to secure the property location and confirm George Steinruck's property location. George Hanselman's land located solely in Berks County adjoined George Steinruck's land located soley in Montgomery County. The obvious conclusion is that the two properties straddled the Berks-Montgomery County Line, which is in fact, accurate. Another interesting note is that some of the neighbors and members of the panel to value George Hanselman's land are buried at the Fritz Burial Ground in close proximity to the Hanselman and Steinruck properties. A third interesting note is that Anna barbara, George Hanselman;s daughter and Christian Steinruck, son of Johan George Steinruck were in fact next door neighbors and in close proximity to George Gresh (who's daughter Salome would later marry Christian Steinruck's son Samuel. {John Amtsfield Note]

 

Hans Jurg is a corruption of Johan George or John George [JJAmtsfield]

Generation No. 3

 

        6.  Anna Barbara3 Hanselman (Johan George (Hans Jurg)2, George (Jerg) (Meilisjerg)1) was born 1759 in Douglass Township, Berks County, PA, and died 1841 in Berks County, PA.  She married Christian Steinruck, son of Johan Steinrock and Anna Maria.  He was born September 05, 1756 in Douglas Township (now Upper Pottsgrove Township), Montgomery (then Philadelphia) County, PA, and died October 15, 1822 in Upper Pottsgrove Township ("Pottsgrove"), Montgomery County, PA4.

 

Notes for Anna Barbara Hanselman:

Berks County Deed records identify a property that was granted to Josiah Steinruck (47-501) by John Steinruck and Mary. Josiah then granted the property to Isaac Steinrock of Douglas Township (658-518). Isaac Steinrock then granted the property to Charles Steinruck of Douglas Township (658-519). This is apparently the tract that had been occupied by Christian Steinruck's widow, Anna Barbara.

Notes for Christian Steinruck:

New Hanover Lutheran Church Records record the birth and baptism of Christian Steinruck with a birthdate of September 15, 1756 and baptism on April 17, 1757 in New Hanover. Parents listed as Christian [sic] and Anna Maria, sponsor was Elizabeth Jack. The record is unfortunate since it incorrectly lists the father as Christian rather than Johan George or George. Confirmation records make clear that Christian was the son of George.

A History of the Upper Pottsgrove Township Steinruck Homestead, [by S. Duane Kauffman, 1411 Schwenkmill Rd., Perkasie, PA November 24, 1973] This is a review of the real estate transactions involving the 102 acre farm between Levengood Road and Chestnut Grove Road in Upper Pottsgrove Township. Deeds recorded at the Montgomery County Courthouse at Norristown were used.

        The following deed is the key. Following is an abstract:

516-378 JOHN STEINRUCK ET AL TO JOHN WEILER, April 2, 1824

        Between John Steinruck and Samuel Steinruck both of Douglass Township, Berks County, executors of the last will of Christian Steinruck late of Pottstown, parties of the first part and John Weiler of Pottstown, the other part.

     HISTORY OF PROPERTY TO THIS POINT

        On March 26, 1761 the tract of 100 acres, 50 perches was granted by Samuel and Mary McCall of Philadelphia to Joachim Godschalk.

        On November 18, 1767 Joachim and Elizabeth Godshalk granted the tract to George Steinruck.

        On July 26, 1796 George and Anna Steinruck granted the land to "their son, Christian Steinruck".

        "Said Christian in his will of March 1, 1820 instructed property to be sold by his executors, John Steinruck, Samuel Steinruck, (sons) and Peter Moser (son-in-law). Moser renounced his responsibility. Weiler paid $775.43 at the time of purchase and $1,066.67 to be paid immediately after the decease of BARBARA, widow and relict of said Christian Steinruck, to the heirs of said deceased".

     DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY

        At the present time [November 24, 1973] the farm (100 acres still intact is occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Theis and their son and daughter. (Address: Rt. 20, Pottstown). The house is very old. It is in three parts. The oldest is log while the later additions are stone. The exterior has been covered with stucco. The exterior is showing its age but the interior is quite good and is well maintained. In my contact I found the Theis family to be extremely amiable and cooperative! At present the property is used as a large chicken farm.

The Douglas Township Tax Lists specifically state that the 100 acre lot and dwelling owned by George Steinrock was "sold to Christian Steinruck" in 1797. Thereafter the same property is listed under Christian Steinruck until 1807 when it appears in Pottsgrove Township (Pottsgrove Township being formed from parts of Douglas Township). The property is listed in Pottsgrove Township through 1822. In 1823 the property is listed under the names of John and Samuel Steinmor [sic].

 

The Journal of David Schultze, Surveyor living in Upper Hanover Township, Montgomery County, contains two entries for George Steinruck. David Schultze was a well known Colonial surveyor. An entry in his joural dated October 31, 1774 is the following: "surveyed 40 acres for George Steinruck" (p. 80) and "am to survey for George Steinruck near manetawny..." (p. 82) from the Journals and Papers of David Schultze, edited by Andrew S. berky and published by the Schwenkfelder Library, Pennsburg, PA, 1953. [NOTE: David Schultze mentions surveying a 40 acre tract in 1774 for George Steinrock and Christian is listed with a forty acre tract in tax lists from 1783 through 1789. Tax lists for the period before 1782 are not available][NOTE: The Manatawny Creek runs in a north-south axis through the westside of Pottstown and very near the Steinruck homestead]

In the Lancaster County deed books (Book 25 pp552-'3) there is a record of a transaction between Christian Steinruck, taylor, (sic) of Donegal Township and Jacob Horst a farmer from same township.  For $50.00 Steinruck sold to Horst two pieces of linen, one bed and bedstead, one lot of yarn, one pair of andirons, two shoals (sic), two coverlets, two quilts, one pair of candlesticks, one iron kettle, one table, two tubs and stands, one small brass kettle, to have and to hold.  Witnessed by Lewis Yertey, William Steinruck, and Martin Horst.  (It looks like Christian had to deal with indebtedness in this manner.)  Christian Steinrock shows in Bainbridge, West Donegal Township, Lancaster County tax lists as a tailor from the mid 1820s through 1847.  In 1805 a Christian Stinnerook, taylor was listed in Caernarvon Township in Berks County.  One listing is given in the Philadelphia city directory for the year 1814 showing a Christian Steinruck as a tailor. In available records his surname was sometimes given as Steinruck and sometimes as Stinerock. {S. Duane Kauffman, Perkasie, PA via forwarded file November 2003}

Family tradition holds that Samuel was the Lutheran School teacher in Boyertown.

 

Gravestones located between the Good Shepherd UCC church and the Bank property as part of the Old Union Cemetery in Boyertown, were reinterred when both the Bank and the church expanded. The gravestones were mounted all together in rows. Samuel's gravestone is somewhat problematic as it contains the death date for Samuel Sr. (May 17, 1836) interposed with the birth date for Samuel Jr (September 25, 1819) which creates the illusion that a 17 year old Samuel Steinruck was buried there. There is no such Samuel Steinruck. Which Samuel, then was buried at the Old Union Cemetery in Boyertown? Logic would dictate that when burying a man, the death date would likely be correct and would apply for the person being buried and that they would have the correct date for the correct person being buried.

 

In this case, however, Samuel Steinruck, Jr. died in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, PA August 20, 1859.

In affidavits filed for Civil War pension wherein most of the work was done by Emil and Sevilla Ose, Elizabeth stated that she and John were married 5-2-1838 by Rev. Conrad Miller in Boyertown. At the time the widow's pension was applied for she lived with Emil and Sevilla Ose at 2971 Lawrence St., Philadelphia, PA and she also lived for a time with Willoughby Steinruck at 1341 Seltzer St., Philadelphia, PA.

 

John was advanced in age at the time he enlisted in the army in 1862. He contracted a fever (described as typhoid by medical experts but for which he described as "malarial") while on guard duty between Sharpsburg and New Berlin, Maryland. He was left sick on October 30, 1862 and hospitalized through November and into December when he was given a medical discharge. Apparently he was severely weakened and had to be carried from coach into home according to several affidavits in the pension file. He recovered very slowly and from then on had a frail constitution. He is described in 1898 as being 5 foot, 6 1/2 inches, with a dark complexion, gray hair and gray eyes. On October 8, 1898, Elizabeth Steinruck was granted a widow's pension of $8 per month retroactive to March 6, 1898.

Berks County Deed records identify a property that was granted to Josiah Steinruck (47-501) by John Steinruck and Mary. Josiah then granted the property to Isaac Steinrock of Douglas Township (658-518). Isaac Steinrock then granted the property to Charles Steinruck of Douglas Township (658-519). This is apparently the tract that had been occupied by Christian Steinruck's widow, Anna Barbara.

Notes for Henry Rex Staneruck:

Other Staneruck family members that possibly descend through this line but cannot be reliably connected are as follows:

All are tombstone inscriptions from St. Peter's Lutheran Church Cemetery in Barren Hill, Montgomery County, PA

 

The Family tradition has been that Staneruck brothers came from Hesse-Kassel area of germany along the Rhine. That the family once lent money to David Rittenhouse, the famed Philadelphia astronomer. That  Howard R. Staneruck's ado0pting parents descended from Patriot Families. Howard R. Staneruck's grandfather on his mother's side was also H. R. Staneruck (1843-1891) and was known as Henry Rex Staneruck. Some Stanerucks were associated with toll roads. A teacher at Spring Mill may have suggested the Staneruck spelling.

BOROUGH OF McEWENSVILLE. 

 

The first person to locate at the present site of McEwensville was John Quigley, a plowmaker and carpenter, who sold his property early in

the present century to a Mr. Stahlnecker and moved farther up the Warrior Run valley. Alexander McEwen, a Scotchman by descent, a weaver by trade, and a soldier in the war of 18l2 whence he derived the title of captain, opened the first store and was the first postmaster. 

William Moritz established the first public house, and, with these early improvements as a nucleus, the place rapidly attained village

proportions.  In 1825 Adam Sarver laid out a number of lots, which were rapidly sold, and, as a large increase in the population was

anticipated, the name became an important subject of consideration.  Prior to that time the place had been known as Pine Grove, from the

prevailing variety of timber in the vicinity; the present name was formally conferred at a supper given by Captain McEwen on the 28th of

October, 1825, to Brigadier General Adam Light, Lieutenant Colonel James S. Dougal, Majors John Montgomery and Robert H. Hammond, Captains Anthony Armstrong, of the Northumberland Troop of Horse, Henry Frick, of the Milton Guards, William Fulkerson, of the Warrior Run Infantry, Jackson McFadden, of the Lewisburg Guards, James Finney, of the Union Guards, John Ludwig, of the Lafayette Artillerists, and other officers of a battalion of militia encamped for review at Camp Calhoun.  The following account appeared in the Miltonian of November 5, 1825:-

        After the review of the Independent Battalion of Volunteers on the 28th of October Captain Alexander McEwen invited Brigadier General Light and his staff, the field officers of the battalion, and several respectable citizens then on a visit to the camp to partake of a dinner with him.  After much conversation it was observed that a new town was about to be laid out in the vicinity of the camp ground, and the inquiry arose, What was the town to be named?  No one could tell, but we think the following sentiment, given as a volunteer toast by General Light, will he sufficiently indicative of what it ought to be called.  The toast was loudly and most heartily applauded by the company.

        By Brigadier General Light "May we shortly have the satisfaction of seeing  a new and flourishing village situated in the immediate vicinity of Camp Calhoun, and may it be appropriately named McEwensville."

        By Captain Frick--" The town plot just laid out by Adam Sarver - let the blank he filled with McEwensville, and may the town increase with the exactness, neatness, and rapidity of Camp Calhoun, and vie with her more flourishing neighbors, Milton and Pennsborough!"

        There was for some years a healthful and normal expansion of the village in size, population, and business importance, but with the opening of the Philadelphia and Erie railroad and consequent growth of Watsontown the prestige of McEwensville began to decline.  This was particularly noticeable in the decade ending with 1870.  In recent years the borough has derived a renewed impetus from the opening of the Wilkesbarre and Western railroad; it has now some half-dozen stores, a hotel, three manufacturing establishments, four churches, a school building, and a postoffice.  A fertile and populous farming region surrounds the town, giving stability and permanence to its business and other interests.

        Local Industries.-  A. Mauser & Brother's carriage works were established in 1839 by William Hood, who built a frame shop forty feet square on the west side of Main street.  In 1848 he moved this building back from the street and  erected in front of it a two-story frame

structure forty by forty-four feet; he also built a brick blacksmith shop on the opposite side of the street.  In 1870 Mr. Hood disposed of

the establishment to Alem Mauser, and in 1875 the present firm was formed with Cain Mauser as junior member.  They employ fifteen men and manufacture a large amount of new work.

        C. Gearhart & Brother's foundry is operated in a building erected in 1840 by Stitzel & Housel.  It is a brick structure sixty by thirty

feet, one story in height.  From the original proprietors the establishment passed to J. P. Hackenberg, and during his ownership it

was rented by other parties.  It then became the property of PHILIP STEINRUCK, and after his retirement in 1865 the foundry was operated two years by William Stitzel.  Samuel Grey was the next owner; he sold it in 1875 to C. Mentzel, who was succeeded by the present proprietors in 1887.

        The Excelsior Wagon Works were erected in 1868 by E. Everitt & Company, who were succeeded in March, 1882, by John W. Kerr, the present owner.  The plant was first used as an agricultural implement manufactory.  Mr. Kerr introduced the necessary appliances for the manufacture of extension table slides, land rollers, bobb sleds, etc., and added engines, blacksmith shop, warehouse, and circular saw mill to the plant. W I Rothermel was associated in the business in 1886, but since his retirement Mr. Kerr has continued the business individually.  The works were destroyed by fire on the 1st of June, 1889, but have been rebuilt.  Children's express wagons, farm wagons, etc., are manufactured.

        Borough Organization.-  Legal proceedings for the incorporation of McEwensville as a borough were instituted on the 7th of November, 1857, when a petition with that object in view was presented to the county court of quarter sessions.  The grand jury, through Stephen Bittenbender, foreman, having certified to the expediency of granting it, the borough was forthwith incorporated by decree of court, November 7, 1857.  The first election under the new regime was held on the 14th of December, 1857, and resulted as follows: burgess, John F. Dentler; council: John Boush, George Piper, F. H Carver, Henry Hartranft, William Hood; school directors: George A. Dixon, William Sample, John Boyer, J. T. Williams, F. D. Yeomans, William B. Irvin; overseers of the poor: Daniel Gold, William Beard; inspectors: William F. Kreigh, E. F. Gold; assessor, Andrew J. Guffy; judge of elections, George Piper; justice of the peace, PHILIP STEINRUCK.
