Vol I - ND. I	The Nafzger Heritage News	June 10, 1973
The publisher has a collection of a large Nat kinship system whose more than 15,000 members have de from approximately 35 immigrants who entered the U nited States from 1720 to 1900. There is not enough information on the Nafzger members to allow con struction of a total genealogy of all the names on tie list. There has been no attempt to construction be yond the port of emigration. The project has been complicated by the
. lack of early records and the diffi culty in gathering information from descendants who are located in all parts of the vast United States. Thus, it is the hope o the publisher that the newsletter will serve as some type of centralized collection point for all the information on the Nafzgers found in the United States.

The N&zger Name
When the Nafzgers arrived in A merica, the official records starte playing tricks with the family name. The result was that any way it is spelled today is bound to be cor rect. All the odd ways that the name appears must be studied in or der to completely trace the differ ent branches of the family line. In the 1 790 Census, the name is Nap- sacker. In Revolutionary service, it is Nofsinger, Knuffsinger,’ and Nos tringer. In patent records it is Nos tringer and Nassingers, and in subse cluent deeds, almost any manner in which the letters can be arranged is used. What emerged was approxi mately 20 different family lines which are:

The next three Nafzgers to sail f’or America were udolh.

Some of the children of Rudolph were Samuel. Andrew. Peter and others not yet identified. Sons of Ru dolph were clearly settled in Wash ington County, Pennsylvania by the year I 799. It would appear his wid ow is listed in the 1 790 Census of Washington County although anoth er Rudolph Nappzinger (Widower) was being married to Suzanna Kerin (Widow) in 17 in Irederick. Mar yland. We have been unable to identify or connect the Maryland “Rudolph” to any line as yet. The burial site of either Rudolph is not known.

The first Nafzger in America appears to have been a woman, Joanna. who was the wife of Andreas Bonney. They entered America in I 71 “) and set tled in Pennsylvania. The second one to settle in America was Ulrich NafI zir who landed in Philadelphia in 1 74 1. He settled in Lancaster County. Pennsylvania. He died in 1754 and intestate records on tile at Lancaster seemed to indicate no male descendants who came to America with him.

Peter Naffzieer was born in Uber au. Germany. He died in Germany as did one son and two daughters. The surviving sons, Christian, Peter, Valentine, and his widow, Cather ine emigrated to the United States in about 1850. They landed at New York City and proceeded westward:
first to Putnam County, Ohio and later to Danvers, Illinois. Some members of the family eventually settled near Columbus, Kansas. Members of the family emigrated during the 1853 to 1888 period.
Peter Naffzigger (1790- ) was born at Iliback, Germany. He sailed for the United States in 1 827. He died at sea as did one of his chil dren. The family was headed for Canada but remained in the Penn sylvania area after his death. Chris tian Nafziger. the youngest member of the Nafziger family in Germany, made the trip to the United States
• in 1846. He and his family arrived in New York. His mother, Eliza beth, and brother Jacob, arrived one year later.
Samuel Nafziger was born near Trebo, France in 1830. Samuel em igrated to America in 1856.
Christian Naffziger (1817-1872). emigrated with his family from Ba varia in 1855. They settled near Stand ford, Illinois. Frederick Naff ziger came in 1840. They lived in Ohio for 10 years and in 1850 moved to Illinois. Daniel Nafzger was born in 1836, moved with all of his family excepting one son to the United States in 1887, and settled in Green County, Wisconsin.
The family historian can trace the family line to the 1600’s to Thun, Switzerland.
Other Nafzgers arriving in New York are as follows: Daniel Naf nizer, 25 years old on Ship Caesar in New York in 1828; Christian Nafzger, 35 years old on Ship Duch ess Dorlean in New York in 1842:

Some of the Nafzgers traveling on the Ship Nimrod in 1826 repre sent members of the Peter of Grov ersheim family.
The foregoing list is probably an incomplete list of Nafzgers entering the United States. It must be re membered that most of the travel ers had their wives and children a- long. Only the names of the head of the family are usually listed on the passenger lists. How many oth er Nafzgers entered can be deter mined only through continued ex amination of passenger lists and genealogical search. Please write the editor of the Nafzger Heritage News about Nafzgers who we may have missed.

It is well known that the Naftzin gers lived in Pennsylvania at the time of the Indian massacres. Paul Hostetler of Handen, Connecticut, writes an interesting heritage story that illustrates some of the difficul ty in tracing missing persons of a family line. Mr. Hostetler was visit ing the Zug farm which is located near Matthew’s farm. “the present owner of the Zug farm told me in 1971 that around 1929, an under taker, named Naftzinger, came to the farm and showed him a spot where a Naftzinger girl was buried. It was a fieldstone marker with mi Cont’d - Next column
Begins Naftz Study
About 40 years ago, we were looking over some old pictures and tintypes that are usually found in the parlors of most homes. They were the depression years of the 1930’s. People had time on their hands and few things to cccupy their minds so it was a common pastime to look at pictures that had accumulated over the years. We asked ourselves some questions. “Where did we come from? What country? How did we come to live in Pennsylvania? Who are our rela tives? Little did we realize at the time that the answers to the ques tions would be so frustrating.
We began by looking in the ceme terys, church records, county tax records, courthouses, and reading histories of counties, states .and the nation. Many times, the names were mispelled and poorly written. We encountered frustrating dead ends, loss of memory and in some cases just stubborn resistance. Cen sus takers were often poor writers, wrote on paper that blotted and names came spelled almost anyway that you can imagine. In our own line, we find it spelled four ditter ent ways due to geographic loca tion. In Ohio, it is Nauftzinger; in Pennsylvania, it is Noffsinger/Naft zinger; and the original is Nafzger. This name with the Swiss-German accent sounded different to people and they wrote it as it sounded.
There are many parts of our his tory that will never be completed because of indifference, dead ends, lack of interest and a lack of con cern. One example of a dead end is Henery Nafzger, born in 1 755. He moved from Berks County before the 1790 Census and the name of his wife is unknown. He was a blacksmith by occupation and he appeared to move to various parts of Pennsylvania

M Lands in America
According to Volume 1 7, page 291, second series, Pennsylvania Archives, Matthew Nafzger, the pi oneer ancestor of the Naftzinger families in Berks County, was one of the 500 emigrants who landed at Philadelphia on the 1 5th of Sep tember in 1749. He was on th ship Phoenix which sailed from Rotterdani. Matthew was last from Cowes. England. Some immigrants ended up in England for as long as two years trying to find passage to America. They returned to Rotter dam and Amsterdam for their long sought journey to America.
M3tthew Settles
in Berks County
According to publications found in the Pennsylvania Archives, Mat thew Naftzinger, the pioneer of the family in Berks County, settled in the Tulpehocken section. (formerly Bern. now Upper Bern township).
We find in the third series of the Pennsylvania Archives, Volume 6 page 28 1 and 306 that Matthew was a 7th class private in the Company of Captain Shradel, 3rd Batallion, Pennsylvania State Troops from Tulpehocken under Colonel Henry Spyker during the years 1 777 and
The name of Matthew Nafzger appears among the list of members of the Tulpehocken Reformed Church in 1759 (Montgomery’s His tory of Berks County).
From the first Census of the United States taken in the year 1 790 we find but two Nafzger fami lies in Berks County. The family of Matthew consisted of four free white males over 16 years of age, (this includes the head of the fami ly) three white males under 16 years of age. and five females, in cluding the mother of the family. Another family listed is Mathias Naftzinger and his wife located in Tul pehocken township. As these are official records, it would appear that there were only fourteen Naft zingers in Berks County in 1790.
Matthew Nafzger, th’e progenitor of the Naftzinger line in Berks County, Pennsylvania was born in 1731 or 1732 in Thun, Switzerland. The family emigrated to Zwibruck en in the Palitinate of North Ger many because of religious persecu tions.
According to records, he sailed to America from Rotterdam and land ed in Philadelphia in September of 1749. He was aggressive and by
1751, he owned and operated a farm of 200 acres in Bern township, Berks County.
He died in 1803. He was a peace loving and church man, being a heavy contributor and helper in the building of the St. Michaels Church. He was patriotic as he served in the Revolulionary War during the 1777- 1 778 period. In all aspects, he was an asset to our nation as he helped build it, protect it and he feared a and trusted God—a far cry from the world we find today.
sylvania which lasted until the depression years, After the de pression years, Foster returned to his first love: selling in the Farmer’s Market. He retired at the age of 74 years in 1970.
Foster married 1-lettie Sarah Smith in 1937. They have resided in the Reading area all their mar ried lives. He is an avid churchman and a member of the Protestant faith. He is a sixth generation mem ber of Matthew Naftzinger’s family line. The generations are as follows:
Matthew (I). Jacob (2). Peter (3). Joseph (4). Allen (5). and Foster. He is considered the Naftzinger family historian and much of the material found in this issue was con tributed by Foster.
One origin of the Naftzinger name can be found, on page 74 and 92 of Arnold Lunn book “Switzer land.” The first Zahringers were from the Village of Baden, Ger many. After some years, some nephews of the Zahringer family r house moved east of Bern district and founded their own estate, for which the Canton ot’ Schwyz was a part of the place of Nafels.
Nephew in the Swiss language is “Naffe” pronounced Naff and in German, pronounced as Neffay:
The name was written for a number of years as Naffe/Zahringer which meant “nephews of the house of Zahringer.” Later, the name was written as Naftzhringer. Still later on, the partition bracket was crossed to make a “T”, ahr was dropped, and the name appeared much as we find it today.
Foster Naftzinger. guest writer of this issue of the Naftzger Heritage News, was born in Frackville, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvapia in 1896. He was the 8th of nine children. He was educated in Reading. Pennsylvania, graduating in 1916. After graduation, he entered the business world in the Farmer’s Market, Reading, a place where he had worked since he was eight years old. He was called to service in World War I. and his business at the Farmer’s Market was closed. After the war, he got a job as a truck driver and returned to further schooling at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. New .York. He accepted a job with the Bell Telephone of Penn-

275 names are on file as members of the sixth generation, 150 seventh generation members,

In addition, Foster writes that he has several hundred more names to add to the record of
Matthew’s line. The list is too long to print in this single issue ot the News.
Most ot the names on the various list of generations of Matthew’s line have been charted and connected on one large wall chart (4 feet by 6 feet) which is too large for pr nt ng ir this issue of the News.
