1727 Jacob STUTZMAN born at Valley, Miesbach, Bayern, Germany [1727: Johann Jacob STUTZMAN, a baptized Lutheran from Germany arrived in Philadelphia. Although documentation of his children's birth has yet to be found, he seems have had two sons, Jacob and Christian. In "
The History of Lebanon County" a Jacob Studsman is shown to be a warrantee with 50 acres located in Heidelberg Twp. on Dec. 23, 1754. On this same list appear the names of Johannes ARTZ with 150 acres June 17, 1737; John ARTZ with 50 acres Feb. 18, 1742; Adam HEDRICK, 50 acres March 30, 1734; and Philip REIDEBACH, 50 acres, March 12, 1755. The surnames ARTZ, HETTRICK, and REDEBACH, continue to appear together with STUTZMAN in church records down through the generations in various locations of the Berks, Schuylkill, and Northumberland Counties of Pennsylvania.] [In 1727 John Jacob, with his wife and two children, went to Rotterdam Holland, embarked on the ship "Adventure" and sailed for America, along with forty-three families (140 people in all) They landed at Philadelphia October 2, 1727. Sometime after this John Jacob took the oath of Allegiance to the United States. Later on he moved to Franklin County, near Hagerstown, on a farm that he later owned. While there, his family consisted of four sons, David, Jacob, Abraham, and Daniel, and two daughters Hannah, and Franey or Fanny. One of these daughters married to a Mr. Stoner, and the other to Daniel Lehr. Some write it Lear. Stoners came to Cambria County. Daniel Lehr went west and finally located near Goshen Indiana.] [The second Jacob Stutzman mentioned in The Encyclopedia was born around 1727, the date the first Jacob came to America. Could he have been the son, a brother to Christian? Perhaps it was his mother, the earlier Jacob’s first wife, who died at sea. This Jacob went from Pennsylvania to Maryland to North Caroline to Indiana, leading Brethren congregations along the way. The third and final Jacob Stutzman was born half a century later in Franklin County, PA, married a Susannah Ulery, and settled in Conemaugh Township, where our Stutzmans lived. The Brethren couple raised eleven children.] Jacob was born 1/1/1705 in Weilacher Hof, near Hardenberg, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany to Anna Loysa (Elisabetha) Regina and Johannes Jacob Stutzman. There are many references to Jacob having been baptized Lutheran and recorded in the Lutheran Church Register of Kallstadt, Germany. Jacob, a tailor, left Gonnheim, Germany, headed to Rotterdam and sailed from there to America with his family. Jacob arrived in Philadelphia and took his oath on October 2, 1727, having arrived on the Adventure. Jacob stayed in America, as did his brother Christian and step-brother Johann Michael Miller. His mother and other siblings died on the voyage -- and his father returned to Switzerland. There are many references to Christian and Jacobs passage being paid by "fellow Amish" -- which required a period of service as repayment. The marriage to Hannah is expected to have occurred between 1736 and 1764. Jacob was a Dunker, or Brethren, while his brother, Christian became Amish or Mennonite (he has a long famly lineage on the Swiss Anabaptist site -- with database records stored for Amish and Mennonite families). Because both families inter-married with Millers and Uhlrichs, tracing the family history is a bit complicated. The decided difference appears to be their religion. Jacob continued to improve the familys future by buying land inexpensively in the wilderness, selling it at higher rates, and buying land in newly settled areas at low prices. This way, he amassed considerable land for himself and his family. Jacob lived first in Berks County, then Chester County and Adams County, PA before settling near Hagerstown, MD in the early 1730s (verify).While there his family consisted of four sons: David, Jacob, Abraham, and Daniel; and two daughters: Hannah and Franeyor or Fanny (which may be Plantina, as there are some record that his second daughters name is Plantina.). One of these daughters was married to a Mr. Stoner, and the other to Daniel Lehr. Some folks write it Leer. Stoners came to Cambria County; Daniel Lehr went west, and finally located near Goshen, Indiana. (verify) As described in the Ulrich family story, border disputes between Pennsylvania and Maryland, resolved by the setting of the Mason Dixon line -- as well as changes in Pennsylvania counties over the years make it a bit difficult to track all the land transactions. It was difficult to track in Jacobs time as well -- for land deemed Jacobs land was found to be his good friend Stephen Ulrichs land following surveying for the Maxon Dixon line. Jacob acquired this property from Stephen. In 1742, Stephen Ulrich acquired 100 acres of land at Little Conewago Creek, Lancaster. This land went to Jacob Stutsman of Manheim Township, York County, in two different tracts of 100 acres -- likely after land resurveying.After the state lines were re-drawn, the Stutzman family owned propery on both sides of the PA and MD border. October 2, 1742 Jacob Stutsman of the County of Philadelphia received a land grant of one hundred Acres of Land on Saccony Creek, which adjoined other land of his in Maxatawny Township, for Fifteen Pounds Ten shilings and the yearly Quit-Rent of One Half-penny Sterling for every Acre In 1761 Jacob Stutzman sells his land to George Wine of York County, PA and the Stutzman and Ullery families go to Conococheague Hundred of Washington Co MD, then Frederick Co MD. Listed as neighbors are Funderburg of von Funderbach and Waggoner, which is the maiden name of Stephens mother. The land tracts in MD are called "Good Neighbour" and Good Luck" located near Clear Spring MD. Not sure this is the right Jacob... On file in Carlisle, PA is a will dated March 15, 1773 for Jacob Stutzman of Peters Township, Cumberland County (now Franklin County), names wife Hannah and children David, Platina Stoner, Jacob, Fannie Leer, Daniel, and Abraham. His property in Gonnheim was given, in 1773, to the guardian relatives on security. Jacob died February 3, 1775, in Peters, Montgomery Twp., Cumberland County, PA. From the article "A Revolutionary War Company of Maryland Militia Which Included members of the Dunker Community", by John Hale Stutesman, it appears that the men referenced include David Stutzman, eldest son of Brethren pioneer Jacob Stutzman, whose land lies on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line directly north of Clear Spring. Daniel was one of Davids brothers. Stephen Ulrich, a son of the Brethren pioneer, Stephen Ulrich, who was a founder of the Conococheague Brethren congregation. Henry Butterbaugh, whose name was also spelled Puterbaugh, married a daughter of Stephen Ulrich, Sr.

2 Oct 1727 Stutzman family immigrated to Philadelphia on Ship
Adventurer (Capt John Davies, Master) from Rotterdam from Plymouth, England {Mennonites] [Thirty Thousand Names of Immigrants": Fifty-three Palatines with their families about one hundred and forty persons, imported in the ship "Adventurer" John Davies Master, from Rotterdam, last from Plymouth -- Col. Rec III 288 In printed Col. Rec. only twenty-seven names appear. In A fifty five in B thirty-two—editor Johann Jacob Stutzman was on the list.] [According to the book Descendants of Barbara Hochstedler and Christian Stutzman By Rev. Harvey Hostetler, 'Our Stutzman family came from Spiez near Lake Thun, Switzerland.' Also 'From the landing records at Philidephia PA, we learn that Johan (John) Jacob Stutzman arrived Oct. 2, 1727 on ship Adventure, Capt. John Davies, from Rotterdam, last from Plymouth, England.' According to tradition John Jacob Stutzman lost his wife and all his childeren except for his two sons, Jacob and Christian. He returned to the old country and left his boys Jacob and Christian to the Amish. Most descendants are from one of these two.] [Stephen “Ulderey”, of Baltimore County, MD, a native of “High Germany”, was naturalized on 4 June 1738 along with his children Stephen, George, Daniel, John, Elizabeth, and Susanna. Stephen Ulrich of Philadelphia Co., Pa., was naturalized in April 1741. John Hale Stutesman felt that Stephen needed to naturalize again in PA because some of his land had fallen into PA when the colony boundaries were redefined. Naturalization required a previous residence of seven years in the British Colonies in America. John Hale Stutesman of San Francisco, as a result of his research on his ancestor Jacob Stutzman, has shown a long term connection between the Ulrich and Stutzman families and has supplied new data on the early Ulrichline. He feels that both families were members of the Little Conewago Dunker Congregation which was formed near Hanover, Pa., about 1738 and mentioned that Morgan Edwards wrote, in 1770, that the congregation had been formed by “... Eldrick ... Stutsman” and others. This could be Ulrich and Stutzman On 15 Nov. 1749, Stephen Ullery bought 150 acres in “Digges Choice” from John Digges, and on 3 June 1758, “Stephen and Elizabeth Wollery of Frederick Co., Md.” sold this land. On 21 April 1761, Stephen Ulrich made deeds that sold his 200 acres of York County land to George Wain or Wine. One tract had been sold to Jacob Stutzman by 1759 and Stutzman had sold to Wine. The deeds were made to clear the record. Stephen was already living in Maryland by this time. In 1751, a Maryland patent for a tract called Germany in Frederick County, Maryland, was warranted to Hans Waggoner. On 25 Sept. 1752, Hans Waggoner sold 235 acres of this land on the western slope of the Conococheague Valley to Stephen Ulary, of Frederick County, Maryland. On 19 Feb. 1754, Stephen and Elizabeth Ulary sold 25 acres of the same land to Ludwig Miller. On 31 May 1754, Stephen and Elizabeth Ularick of Frederick County, Maryland, sold 86 acres of their 1752 purchase to Daniel Ularick. In August of 1754, Stephen Ulrich was appointed an overseer of roads in Conococheague Hundred, Frederick County, for 1755. Stephen and Elizabeth Ulrich had by now sold 111 acres of their 1752 purchase and in 1764 he was given a warrant to resurvey the remaining 124 acres and to add some contiguous land. The survey was completed in 1766 and on 29 Sept. 1767, Stephen was granted a patent for 694 acres which he now called Good Neighbor. Also, on 29 Sept. 1761, Stephen Ulrick and Nicholas Martin of Frederick County, MD, received a patent for 425 acres for which they had obtained a warrant on 27 Aug. 1759. This tract was called Stephens’s Hope and included a former survey, Much Grumbling, which had not been taken up by Jacob Funk. Jacob Stutzman had taken up an adjoining tract, Good Luck, in 1761. In 1763, Stephen Ulrich and Jacob Stutzman attended a Great Council of the Brethren at Conestoga, PA, perhaps as church elders. On 10 April 1767, “Stephen Ulrick of Fredrick Co., Md.” and Jacob Stutzman were naturalized together in Pennsylvania. They did this by affirmation rather than an oath, since their religion did not allow swearing even for this purpose. In 1773, Stephen Ulrick was a witness to the will of Jacob Stutzman and signed in German. Jacob died in1775, in Peters Twp., Cumberland County, PA, and his widow married Stephen Ulrich about 1782. In 1768 and 1769, Stephen sold 345 acres of Good Neighbor in four pieces, but the deeds no longer mention his wife Elizabeth and she may have been dead by this time. On May 1772, Nicholas Martin, Dunker minister to the Conococheague Valley Congregation, wrote that “Brother Stephen ... has now become more reluctant (to be ordained) because he thinks that he has become estranged to the brethren throughout the country because he became naturalized”. [Durnbaugh, Donald F., The Brethren in Colonial America, n.v.] This is supposed to refer to Stephen “Woller”, Martin’s assistant. The letter also referred to the fact that “brother Stephen’s” brother John had moved away. John Ulrich had moved to Bedford County, PA, prior to 1772, so “brother Stephen” may well have been Stephen Ulrich. John Ulrich (1755, 1768) and Daniel Ulrich (1754) had land grants in what became Washington Co., MD. On 25 March 1782, Stephen Ulrich and Hannah Stutzman filed a premarital agreement in Washington County, MD, (formed from Frederick County in 1776) “for and in consideration of a marriage intended by God’s permission to be shortly had and solemnized between the said Stephen Ulrich and Hanna Stootsman ...”. The intent of this agreement was that the previous children of each would not inherit from the estate of the other spouse. A 1783 tax list of Washington County shows Stephen Wolery with 324 acres (part of Germany), three horses and three cattle. The deed books of Washington County, MD, contain a record of an indenture in which the heirs of Stephen Ulrich sold some of their inheritance. A partial quotation from that record will suffice to show the genealogical content. “This indenture made the seventeenth day of June in the year of our Lord one Thousand seven hundred and eighty five Between David Ulrick, Stephen Ulrick,Samuel Ulrich, Jacob Stutsman, Christina Stutsman, Daniel Miller, Elizabeth Miller, George Butterbaugh, Jacob Liear, Lidia Liear all of Washington County and State of Maryland of the one part” for fifteen hundred and ten pounds sold to John Cushwa of the same county part of a tract of land called Good Neighbour which contained 322 acres. According to the record, David Ulrich, Stephen Ulrich, Samuel Ulrich, Jacob Stutsman, George Butterbaugh (Puterbaugh), Henry Butterbaugh, Hannah Butterbaugh, and Ledy Liear signed by mark. The thirteen people appeared before two Justices of the Peace on 17 June 1785 to confirm the deed and “at the same time came Barbara, wife of David Ulrich & Susannah wife of the said Stephen Ulrich & Mary the wife of the sd. Samuel Ulrich” and relinquished all their right and claim of dower in the tract sold. On 21 June 1785, Johannes Cushwa (German signature) mortgaged his purchase to David Ulrich, Stephen Ulrich, Samuel Ulrich, Jacob Stutsman, Daniel Miller, George Butterbaugh, Henry Butterbaugh, and Jacob Liear.] [ohann Jacob STUTZMANN, journeyman tailor in the year 1727 left Gonnheim for America. He was born 1 Jan 1706 on the Weilacher Hof, near Hardenberg, a son of the tenent-farmer Johann Jacob STUTZMANN (STOLTZMANN) and his first wife Regina Elisabetha - this entry appears in the Lutheran Church Register of Kallstadt. Johann Jacob STUTZMANN arrived at the port of Phila. in 1727 as passenger on the ship "Adventure" and took his oath on Oct. 2, 1727. his property in Goonheim, which had been administered for him under care of a guardian, was surrendered to relatives in 1773 on security.] ["Rhineland Emigrants" by Don Yoder, 1985: In 1727, Johann Jacob STUTZMANN, tailor, left Gonnheim for America. He was born Jan. 1, 1706, on the Weilacher Hof, near Hardenberg, parents: Johann Jacob STUTZMANN (STOTZMANN) and his first wife Regina Elisabetha - this information according to an entry in the Lutheran Church Register of Kallstadt taken from a certified transcript in "Akt Kurpfalz Nr. 1064". Johann Jacob STUTZMANN arrived at Phila. in 1727, and took his oath 10/2/1727. His property in Gonnheim was given, in 1773, to the guardian relatives on security. There are contradictory accounts in the documents as to his marital status at the time of STUTZMANN's departure for America. Michael KROBIEL (KREBIEL) attested in Eisenberg on 12/10/1768 that his brother Henrich KREBIEL wrote to him from America that their brother-in-law STUTZMANN, married to a sister of the KREBIELs in America, had died without issue. His wife was also dead. This attestation exists only in the form of transcript; therefore it's contents are not fully conclusive. Source: "Staatsarchiv Speyer, Akt Kurpfalz Nr. 1064".

1731 Anna Barbara PFAUTZ born at Merchingen, Merzig-Wadern, Saarland, Germany

1738 Stutzman (Stutsman, Stutesman) Family. Jacob Stutzman, born abroad prior to 1725, may have been related to the *Johan Jacob Stutzman who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1727, and/or to the Amish Stutzman families who settled Berks Co., PA. He was possibly among the founders of the Little Conewago, PA, congregation in 1738. In 1761 he moved west to the Conococheague Valley of Maryland and was naturalized in 1767. His will, probated in 1776, named his wife, Hannah, and sons David, Jacob, Daniel, Abraham and daughters Plantina (m. Philip Stoner) and Hannah (m. Philip Lear). Another *Jacob Stutzman (ca. 1727-1813), probably a relative, arrived in Pennsylvania in 1752 and settled in Frederick Co., MD. Moving south to North Carolina he led the Uwharrie Brethren congregation of Rowan (now Randolph) Co., NC, in 1764-1801, then moved to the Indiana Territory where he founded the first Brethren congregation in Clark Co.
