(2) "The Family of George Conrad SHINDLER" :

George Conrad SHINDLER, b. bef. 1752, Neuffen, Wurtemburg [Württemberg] Province, Germany, d. by Aug 1812, Jefferson Co., VA., probably married in Germany. When he married a 2nd. time, he was listed as a widower. No record has been found to indicate if his first wife died in GER or came to America with him. Conrad appears on List C (Oath of Abjuration) imported on Snow Louisa, Capt John Pittcarin, from Rotterdam, last from Cowes, took the usual qualificatons No. 71 on 8 Nov 1752. On 2 Jul 1753, in Trinity Lutheran KB, Lancaster Co., PA, he m. 2nd. Maria Barbara PETER (nee WOLTER, d/o David WOLTER of Friedelsheem, GER. Maria had m. 1st. in 1730, George Philip PETER, s/o George Bernhard PETER, by whom she had 6 children, and after the death of her husband, she and the children emigrated to America from Wacherheim [Wachenheim], GER in 1752. He had at least 2 children by Maria; Maria and Johann George. Their births and baptisms were recorded in the records of St. Michael's (or Zion) Lutheran Church in Philadelphia, PA. [In] 1770 he owned 100 acres in Chester Co., PA, and in 1771, 160 acres in York Co., PA in 1777. He appears on the 1783 tax list in York Twp., York Co., PA, with 4 males, 3 females, 169 acres, 3 horned cattle, 2 horses, 5 sheep, 1 house and 1 out house, valued at 173 lbs, rage 4 3/4, tax, 3-4-0. He was a coppersmith and fought in the revolution as a private. According to Kenamond, Prominent Men of Shepherdstown, two of his copper kettles were supposed to be in the museum at Valley Forge. In Mar 2008, the compiler visited Valley Forge, but they had no record of copper kettles ever being in the museum, or Washington's Headquarters. He bought his first property of record, 68 acres, in Berkeley Co., VA, in 17 Apr 1792, part of the original Nicholas Lemon grant near Kearneysville, present day Jefferson Co. There is no record of his 2nd. wife in Jefferson Co., indicating that she must have died in PA. It is probable that all of his children were b. in PA prior to his move to Jefferson Co., and that he must have married a 3rd. time. His 2nd. wife, Maria Barbara WOLTER, would have been too old to have had at least the 4 youngest children, Johann George, Richard, Elizabeth, Nancy, and George Conrad. Given that she m. 1st. in 1730 and on average her birth date would have been 1705-1715 , she would have been at least 54 when Richard was born, and well over 60 years when the remainder were born. Also there is gap of 7 years between the birth of Johnann George and Richard, which may indicate that Maria WOLTER died and George Conrad married a 3rd. time. . . .

Conrad's children: . . .

[1] Anna Maria (Mary?) SHINDLER, b. 6 Jul 1760, PA, bpt. 28 Nov 1762, St. Michael Lutheran Church, Philadelphia, sponsored by Maria SCHINDERLIN and George Gebhard, both single. . . .

27024 (1) Zerilda LINDLEY is listed in a household headed by her mother, Mary LINDLEY, in the 1850 census of Sylvester, Green County, WI.

Zerilda is listed in the 1850 census as a person who was then 18 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1832. According to the 1850 census, she was born in IN.

27025 (1) Zerubbabel ENDECOTT was named after the Biblical character Zerubbabel, who is described as follows in Encyclopædia Brittanica, 2010, © 2010 Encyclopædia Brittanica, Inc.:

Zerubbabel, also spelled Zorobabel (flourished 6th century bc), governor of Judaea under whom the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple at Jerusalem took place. Of Davidic origin, Zerubbabel is thought to have originally been a Babylonian Jew who returned to Jerusalem at the head of a band of Jewish exiles and became governor of Judaea under the Persians. Influenced by the prophets Haggai and Zechariah, he rebuilt the Temple. As a descendant of the House of David, Zerubbabel rekindled Jewish messianic hopes.

(2) Heacock, Roger Lee, The Ancestors of Charles Clement Heacock: 1851-1914, Baldwin Park, CA: The Baldwin Park Bulletin, 1950, pp. 100-102:

Zerubbabel Endecott was a physician and surgeon. He was born in or about the year 1635, second son of Governor John Endecott and his second wife, Elizabeth. Where he received his medical education is not known, but he undoubtedly followed the custom of the times and read medicine in the home of some physician, and accompanied him to visit patients. His brother John appears to have been a doctor also, as the Massachusetts archives for 1668 preserve a bill he sent in the amount of five shillings for a "vomit and attendans" on one John Clarke, "weak and sike by reason of a scurvey and dropsy." There are a few entries in the public records concerning Zerubbabel Endecott. In 1659 he and his brother John were fined for excessive drinking. He was admitted as a freeman in 1665, and was an ensign in the Salem militia in the same year. In 1676 he was a member of a jury which held inquest on the body of Jacob Goodale, servant of Giles Corey, after his sudden death. It appeared that the man was "almost a Natural Fool." The bodly was badly bruised and Mr. Endecott performed a post mortem, finding "dodders of Blood" about the heart.

Most of these facts about Zerubbabel Endecott's life have been taken from the introduction to a little book he wrote, and which was published in Salem in 1914 from the old manuscript. The book is entitled "Synopsis Medicinae or a Compendium of Galenical and Chymical Physick Showing the Art of Healing according to the Precepts of Galen & Paracelsus Fitted universally to the whole Art of Healing." The old manuscript bears the name of Zorubbabel Endecott and the date 1677. It contains some thirty pages of directions for the mixing and application of medicines for the cure of many diseases, and also for the performing of surgical operations. Some samples of its contents follow.

Zerubbabel Endecott was first married in 1654 and his wife's name was Mary, but her maiden name is unknown. Ten children were born before her death in 1677. A year or so later he remarried, taking as his second wife the widow of the Rev. Antipas Newman, who was a daughter of Governor John Winthrop of Connecticut, and a granddaughter of Governor John Winthrop of Massachusetts. There appear to have been no children born to his second wife. At his death in 1684, Zerubbabel Endecott left to his son John, who was also a physician "al my Instruments and books of phisicke and chirurgery." The inventory of the estate listed the instruments: "a case of lances, 2 Rasors, a box of Instruments . . . a saw with six Instruments for a Chirurgion, a curb bit. . . ." As was usual, the bulk of the estate went to the sons, the daughters receiving fifty pounds each: "I give vnto my five daughters (viz) Mary Sarah Elisabeth and Hanna and Mehetabel to each of them fifty pounds to be payd unto them by my Executors. . . ." The inventory of the estate showed that Zerubbabel's property was worth 2726 pounds and 13 shillings. He had become almost twice as wealthy as his father.

"The Endicott Family" published in 1847 gives the names and dates of birth and some other information concerning the children of Zerubbabel Endecott: John born 1657, Samuel born 1659, Zerubbabel born February 14, 1664, Benjamin born 1665, Mary born 1667, married August 2, 1685 to Isaac Williams, Joseph born 1672, Sarah born 1673, probably married a Mr. Brown, Elisabeth born 1675, married Nathaniel Gilbert, Hannah born 1676, married Edward Gaskill, and Mehetable born 1677, died unmarried in 1698. These birth dates are probably taken from family records, as they vary slightly from the Salem baptismal registers.

Mrs Mary Bennett Ball
Birth: 1670, England
Death: 1721, Virginia, USA

She was married to Joseph Ball.

Mary was married twice. Her first husband was a Johnson. She had a daughter by him named Elizabeth who married a Bonum. The Bonums owned a plantation called Cherry Point in the Northern Neck of Virginia. Elizabeth's half-sister, Mary Ball, spent half her time at Cherry Point Plantation. The other half was with her guardian, Col. George Eskridge, at his family seat, Sandy Point Plantation. George was Mary's guardian from 1721, when her mother died, until she married Augustine Washington in 1731. In Feb. 1732, it is said that she named her first born son after her beloved guardian. In 1789, her son visited her in the house he bought for her in Fredericksburg, VA. He wanted to give her a purse with money to pay her expenses. She refused. He left the purse anyway. Then he went to New York City to be sworn in as the First President of the United State. Look at Fag #16211162 for more on Col. Eskridge.

27032 (I) Unknown newspaper, unknown date circa October 16, 1990:

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP)--A 16-year-old boy who was shot in the head as he fled a burglarized home died Saturday morning in a Tulsa hospital, officials say.

The teen-ager, whose name was being withheld, was shot once Friday by a man who said two people were burglarizing his daughter's home, police say.

Bobby Wayne Hale, 61, said he fired a shot into the back of a pickup truck as the teen-agers were fleeing the house.

"When I got there, I saw the door had been kicked in and was practically off its hinges," Hale said. "Then these two guys ran out of the house and jumped in the pickup."

Hale said he fired a single shot through the truck's back window as the teenagers fled. Authorities say the truck apparently had been stolen earlier Friday.

"It was only supposed to be a warning shot," Hale said. "I tried to hit the tailgate. It wasn't supposed to be the way that it happened. I'm just a plain, ordinary citizen who got caught up in an unfortunate situation."

Assistant District Attorney Tom Gilbert said authorities would determine whether to file charges against Hale.

He said Hale has been released because he was not a threat to the community.

(2) Unknown newspaper, November 1, 1990:

TULSA, Okla. (AP)--A father who fatally shot a teen-ager fleeing his daughter's burgled home pleaded no contest Thursday to a manslaughter charge, then attended a news conference convened by a sympathetic district attorney.

Police said Bobby Wayne Hale shot and killed Jesse Elmer Jones, 16, as Jones was driving away from the burgled home of Hale's daughter Oct. 16. Jones died the following day from a gunshot wound to the back of his head.

Under the plea agreement, Hale pleaded no contest to second-degree manslaughter and received a six-month deferred sentence. Hale will serve no jail time, pay no fines or costs and will have no criminal record after six months.

David Moss, who faces an election Tuesday, appeared with Hale at a news conference and said the case was one of the toughest in his nine years as district attorney.

"This man needs to be treated with a gentle hand," Moss said. "I have no doubt as to the absolute truth of everything he is saying. He's been a law abiding, contributing member of the community."

Moss said he received petitions signed by thousands asking that Hale not be prosecuted.

"Not for one minute have I been allowed to forget that I have an election next week," Moss said.

Moss said the shooting was neither excusable nor justifiable but said he understood the community's growing frustration with juvenile crime.

"Before you shoot somebody, you or whoever you are defending has to be in imminent danger of death or bodily injury," Moss said.

"The rule of law must prevail," he said.

Hale said Moss "has done all he can do."

"The situation escalated into something that I had no control over," Hale said. "How something so unintentional can go so wrong, I don't have the answer for it."

27050 [Continued from the Notes on Catherine GARRETSON's husband, Morgan MORGAN, Sr.]

It was not until 1743 that Frederick held its first independent court, and subsequently, as Morgan had continued his position of Justice in Orange County until this time, was re-commissioned as a Justice of Frederick in November of that year. One of the first acts dictated by this new court, was the establishment of West Virginia's first road, directed and overseen by Morgan Morgan which connected his home to the county seat of Winchester, a distance of about twelve miles. As the Report of the Colonel Morgan Morgan Monument Commission says, the road struck out from Winchester "into the wilderness - pointed civilization westward in its onward course," connecting to Morgan's home, which beyond, was nothing "but Indian, buffalo and pack-horse trails".

From the beginning of this roads foundation, it had been of the utmost importance, being a gateway through the wilderness for settlers to their future western homes beyond, as well as a strategic military thoroughfare. "It was the route of young Washington . . . in command as military instructor, etc., of the militia for the northwestern counties of Virginia" . . . , and it was additionally partly traveled by General Braddock and his troops on their way to Fort Duquesne.

It was four years after the foundation of this road that David Morgan, of which Dale Payne wrote of in his Biographical Sketches of the Pioneers, "became one of the earliest pioneers to explore the region of the Monongahela River". It was in 1747 that David, along with Jacob Prickett, Nathaniel Springer, John Snodgrass, and Pharaoh Ryley "assembled on the Cacapon River at Capt. James Coddy's Fort, to await word from Lawrence Washington and Mr. Cresap before proceeding on an expedition to locate land for Mr. Washington and Company". . . . Lawrence was the elder half-brother of George Washington, who was, as Joseph Ellis wrote in His Excellency, "a surrogate father" . . . for the future first president.

The party set out to pay visit to Charles Poke, the famous Indian trader who was then living along the South Branch of the Potomac River, and who too, with David, was at Captain Samuel Brady's funeral. Poke had been one of the earliest traders to penetrate the seemingly endless wilderness of western Virginia and Pennsylvania, and David's party were hoping to interview Charles in regards to the whereabouts of Traders Track Road. Although Poke was not at home at the time of their arrival, his wife was able to give them the information needed for their journey.

In early May, the group had reached the forks of the Cheat River, where they "remained until about the middle part of June, exploring up and down the Monongahela". . . . It was here that they encountered the Mingo Chief, Guyasuta, who with eight warriors, befriended the young surveyors. This is the chief told of in Story of Old Allegheny City, whom "George Washington once called the 'Great Hunter'". . . . Tradition has it that Jacob Prickett inquired from Guyasuta the name of a nearby stream, and after the chief declared that it had no name, Prickett claimed the stream in Guyasuta's honor. It became known as "Guyasuta Creek for many years" . . . , though eventually gave rise to the name Ten Mile. It is additionally ironic to note that later Guyasuta would come to play a role in the defeat of General Braddock's 1755 expedition, of which both David and Jacob Prickett were soldiers, and it was there that Keziah Shearer, a daughter of Henry Batten's, had claimed that David received "a big scar on his cheek from the fighting". . . .

The year following this exploration of the Monongahela, David, along with sixteen year old George Washington, were appointed to assist "George William Fairfax on a surveying expedition of the Fairfax holdings in the Shenandoah Valley". . . . Their work constituted the northern line of the Fairfax estate, which also doubled as a portion of the boundary between Virginia and Maryland. Additionally, it is believed, as disposed by one Joseph Hartley, an old friend of David's, that he "was a first class surveyor and surveyed most of the tracts [in the Monongalia region] in early times". . . . Unfortunately however, many of these surveying records were presumably destroyed in the Morgantown courthouse fire of 1796.

It was in 1757 that George Washington had first ran for a position in the Virginia House of Burgesses for Frederick County, only to lose to Hugh West and Thomas Swearingen, a son of Thomas Swearingen "of the ferry," and husband of Mary Morgan, a daughter of Captain Richard Morgan of Frederick. However, Washington and Col. Thomas Bryan Martin had come to defeat West and Swearingen in the following year, and we subsequently find that while David Morgan cast his vote in Washington's favor, his father, Col. Morgan Morgan, had voted against the future president, rather preferring West and Martin.

In Charles S. Morgan's Biblical record, earlier mentioned within this sketch, it sets fourth that Morgan had "died colonel of his county" . . . , and the inscription on Morgan's original tombstone, made shortly after his death, confirms the honorary title. Of this position, the Morgan Morgan Monument Commission referred to Garner and Lodge's History of the United States, discussing Virginia's colonial system of government, which claims:

At the head of the county was a lieutenant who corresponded in a rough way to the Lord Lieutenant of England, was sort of a deputy to the governor and bore the honorary title of 'Colonel.' He was commander of the county militia and as a member of the Governor's Council exercised other important non-military duties. . . .

It was in 1753 that Lord Thomas Fairfax, Earl of Cameron, had succeeded Morgan as the county's chief Justice, and it was on March 8th of that year, that now being the presiding officer of the court, "administered the oath to Col. Morgan, qualifying him to his military commission of Lieutenant-Colonel". . . . It was thus that Morgan's rank was second only to George William Fairfax, the Colonel of the County at that time, son of Lord Thomas Fairfax, and George Washington's closest friend. Additionally, George Fairfax's sister, Anne, had married Washington's elder brother, Lawrence; Washington himself, as his letters permit us to assume, would later fall "passionately in love with his best friend's wife" . . . , the young Sally Fairfax. It was four years later, being 1757, that upon Colonel George William Fairfax's death, Morgan succeeded in becoming Colonel of his county, and this, the last major feat known of Morgan's life, was a position that he held until death.

The end of this sketch, of course, ends with Morgan's life, being in 1766, the same year his son Zackquill had settled in Monongalia County, and later came to found Morgantown, West Virginia. Priscilla Kingston had wrote that Morgan "lived a pattern of piety and good citizenship until the advanced age of seventy-eight," and while under the roof of his son, Rev. Morgan, he "breathed his spirit into the hands of his creator" . . . on November 17th of that year. Subsequently, Morgan was buried in the cemetery of Morgan's Chapel, and his wife, Catherine, who survived Morgan by seven years, was later buried at his side.

Nearly one-hundred years following Morgan's death, after the western counties of Virginia had separated during the Civil War, Morgan was credited with having many "firsts" within the state. Today, West Virginia acknowledges Morgan as having been its first white settler, the first civil officer, the first judicial officer, the first commissioned military officer, the first road engineer in supervision of the state's first public enterprise, the first licensed tavern keeper, and the official sponsor of the first church. On April 17th, 1923, the West Virginia State Legislature passed a bill providing for the erection of a monument to Col. Morgan Morgan near his place of burial. Governor Ephraim F. Morgan, a sixth-generation descendant, had appointed a commission to carry out the provisions of the act, which is thus the same commission which was so often quoted throughout this sketch. Consequently, the monument was unveiled and dedicated on September 13th, 1924, forever in remembrance of Morgan's sterling and steadfast character.
