Fwe Naffzgers emigrated to merica between 1741
and 1750. Ulrich arrived in 1741, Matthias, Peter and Rudolf in 1749 and Jacob in 1750. During the next seventy—five years the Naffzgers remained in Europe as general peace and prosperity pervailed.
In 1821 Christian Naffziger went to Pennsylvania to investigate the possibility of settlement in Canada. In the last issue of the News we sketched Christian ‘ s life. In this issue we will look at Peter Naffziger, who arrived aboard the ship Nimrod with Christian in 1826.
Peter Naffziger is sometimes called “Peter the Apostle”. Peter was a son of Valentin Naffziger (I) and Magdalena Katharina Spring. Valentin (I) was probably born at Fleckenstein in 1763. Later he was a tenant near Hochheim, where he died in 1800. In 1802 his widow Magdalena remarried (another) Valentin Naffziger (II). Valentin (II) was a son of Peter Naffziger and Elisabeth Ehrismann and was born near Lachen—Speyerdorf in the Palatinate. He died near Hochheim in 1839.
Peter the Apostle was born 23 February, 1787. In 1791 the Naffzigers lived at Gerrrningen’sches Hofgut (estate) at Franicish-Crurtibach, which is southeast from Darmstadt and Ueberau/Illbach/Reinheim in Hesse-]jarmstadt. In March, 1812 Peter married Barbara Beck, a daughter of Christian Beck and Barbara Danner, at Wolferhof, an estate near Neustadt. The record notes that both Peter and Barbara were Mennonites and the marriage took place during a Mennonite meeting. He was 25 years and she was 22 years. Peter sister Magdalena married Johannes Kennel and supposedly she and Peter’s other brother and sisters (Elisabeth, Barbara, Johanna and Jacob) emigrated to America.
Peter and Barbara were parents of Elisabeth, Jacob, Johannes, Magdalena, Barbara , Jakobina ( Pheobe ) , Peter R . , , Valentine , Christian and John. The first seven children were born in Germany, while Katharina was born at sea, Valentine in Canada and the youngest two in America.
In August, 1826 Peter and his family (Barbara, Elisabeth, Jakob, Magdalena,
Barbara, Jakobina and Peter) left 2\rnsterdam. On the same ship were Christian
Naffziger and his family Maria, Catharina, Christian, Johannes and Joseph. In
addition there was a Johannes Naffziger. How he was related to Peter and
Chr istian is unknown . ( See the article on Johannes Naffziger on page Three.)
Also there was a Danner family and men with surnames of Goldschrnidt, Karrer,
Hochstetter, Wehrey and Rudy.
Peter and his family first settled near Wilrnot in Ontario, Canada. He was
a pioneer preacher and moved to Butler county, Ohio prior to March, 1830. In the
1830 census he resided in Milford township, Butler county and lived next to Samuel
Kinsinger and his family. Ten members were in Peter’s household. In 1840 Peter
lived in Liberty township in Butler county, OH next to Christian Nafziger and
Daniel Otto. (It is uncertain who this Christian N was but he was not Peter s son.)

We have received many nice letters from readers during the past three months . We thank everyone for the warm holiday wishes . We hope that Mrs Faye Flaugher of Ohio is recovering from her broken hip and hospitalization. She is a descendent of Jacob Noftsger of Clermont/Brown counties, Ohio.
Mrs t Kryder of Indiana sent us information concerning her family. Her lineage traces to Christian Nafziger/Nofziger, who died in Germany, but whose family came to America and settled first in Wayne county, Ohio. We appreciate
her updates and corrections and we will feature this family soon.
Our articles on Jacob W. Nafziger in the Summer and Winter issues of the News continue to bring additional information on that family. We received additional updates from Duane Nafziger of Iowa. Duane is a great grandson of Jacob, grandson of Ferdinand and son of Walter. Eldon Naffziger of California sent additional names and dates concerning the family. We note however that we have a problem which his information has created. We wrote that Jacob’s wife was named Elisabeth. We felt she also may have been a Naffziger, having been born in Blessenbach in Hesse-Nassau. Eldon Naffziger wrote that Jacob W was married to Elisabeth Weinheimer and they were buried in Park Lawn Cemetery in Danvers. We would like to know if her maiden name was written on her stone. Perhaps other readers have seen this? Eldon also identified Gustavus’ wife as E Maurer (= 11/3/1865 + 10/27/1909). We obviously need additional information on this family.
Mrs Geneva Shelton of Montana sent a note. She is a descendent of Jacob Naffziger, brother of Peter the Apostle. We hope to feature him soon. Does anyone have additional information on this line?
Wilrrw Nafziger sent the News newspaper clippings from various Illinois newspapers . We wi 11 print them whenever space permits . Anyone who wishes to send us newspaper clippings may do so.
r: Gratz sent a note affirming our belief that Christian Naffziger of Canada (featured in the Winter Issue, 1989) likely was born near Esslingen near Landau i.d. Pfaltz (Palatinate). We hope some of our German cousins can provide additional research assistance to verify our belief.

Mrs Anita Fiedler of Indiana writes about John Naffziger
Mrs Fiedler inquires about her great—grandfather John Naffziger. She asked whether the News could identify his parents. She also enclosed a copy of his obituary, which is very informative. The obit appeared in the Dakota City, Nebraska newspaper on Thursday January 8, 1905
Another Pioneer Passes Away
John Naffziger, after a ] Fight for Life, Breathed His Last New Years Day
“Uncle Johnny Naffziger, one of the early pioneers of Dakota County and one of the best known men in northeast Nebraska, died at his home in Dakota City New Year’s morning. For several years his health has been gradually and slowly failing, and like the works of a watch the machinery had given away and his time had come, for he was in his 97th year. Mout a week before his death he was stricken with paralysis and during the intervening time he fought hard against death. His children were nearly all at his bedside night and day during his last hours.
He was born in Bavaria, Germany, going with his parents to Canada when but six years of age , after having once made a previous trip to Davis un, Iwa, he returned to Canada and piloted a colony of Germans to that place, many of who became independently wealthy, and whose children and grandchildren are still residents of the same settlement . He came to Dakota county in the Spring of 1856 and has been a continuous resident of the county ever since. In the early days he conducted a store in Dakota City on the lots east of the McBeath home, and a few pioneers who are left well remember it. Mr. Naffziger was always an ardent democrat and a great party advisor and leader, and filled many offices of trust for the people who had much confidence in his abil ity and j udgement.
At a special election in January , I 862 , he was elected county j udge ; he served as justice of the peace for Dakota precinct from 1889 to 1893; he was elected state representative October 1 3 , 1868 , serving fifth , s ixth and seventh sess ions of that body; October 13, 1863 he was chosen county corrrnissioner and was re—elected October
9, 1866.
He was married before coming to Nebraska, and leaves one child, Mrs Leah Daglish, of , Mo . , by his first marriage . He was married here to Larinda
Packard in 1868 , who died July 6 , 1 89 1 . The following are the children by his
second marriage who mourn the loss of a good , kind and cons iderate father : Rev.
William Naffziger, Smithville, 0., Mrs Louis Warnholtz and J.F. Naffziger, of Souix
City; Mrs Henry Niebuhr, of Winebago Agency, and Mrs George Niebuhr and Mrs. John
Dewitt, of this place.
For more than thirty years has the writer known ‘Uncle’ Johnny Naffziger, and he did not look a day older than he did when we first became acquainted with him. He was a man of his own mind and convictions, always frank in his assertions, but never saying anything harmful against any man.
The funeral services were held at Luthern Church Friday afternoon, conducted by Rev. S.M. Lesher, the remains interred in the Dakota City cemetery.
The obituary stated that John was 97 years old when he died, suggesting birth circa 1808 . If he came to America as was written when he was six, it would have been in 1814, and we know of no Naffzigers who came during that period. Peter the Apostle and Christian arrived with their families in 1826, which would suggest that if John was six years, his birth would have been in 1820. On the ship’s manifest two Johannes were listed under Christian’s name: Johannes, aged 19 (birth circa 1807) and Johannes, aged 9 (birth circa 1817). We can guess that probably the obituary was correct in stating John’s age at 97, so probably John was 19 when he arrived with his parents in 1826. If we are correct, then John was a son of Christian Naffziger, who we featured in the Winter issue of the News. We hope that some of our readers can help us with these problems and shed some more light on this family.

67	By Larry D.Smi
t/he whole and true story of the Heinrich Naftzger family is a difficult one to unravel. It is a difficult one because some very important and necessary bits of information cannot be found, while that which is available is confusing. Information that would help to clear up some loose ends, such as baptismal records for Heinrich and Margareth’s children, and a clear, complete listing of sons and daughters in Heinrich’s will, simply cannot be found. Information that at first glance would appear to be helpful, such as the various references in Centre and Blair Counties in regard to John and Jacob Nofsker, tend only to confuse the researcher who does not realize a single person is the subject. This essay will make an attempt to highlight what is known and what may be close to the truth. It is the result of my and Paula & Bob Leitzell’s research into the Heinrich Naftzger family. The majority of the information comes from census records, published and unpublished family records, court records and other “legitimate” sources. Some of the information is based on educated guesses and will be noted as assumptions where necessary.
Heinrich Naftzger (aka Henry Nafftsger, aka Henry Nofsker) died on September 11, 1823. (1) Three days earlier he made out his will in which he stated:
“In the name of God amen I Henry Naftsger of Miles Township Centre County and State of Pennsylvania being weak in body but but of sound mind and memory blessed be Almighty God for the seine do make and publish this this my last will and Testa rnent in manner and form following (that is to say) First I give and bequeath unto my wife Margret the sole use of all my Estate real and personal and by her to Hold the san as long as she surviveth and after her Decease the said real and per-. sonal Estate shall fall to her own Children the shall be the only Heirs _ — and I do hereby appoint Phillip Mosser Senior and Henry Rishel my Executors of this my last will and
Testament, provided nevertheless that if my wife Margret should Contract Matrimony at any time after my Decease the above men— tioned real and personal Estate which is is bequeathed to her shall be void and of none Effect provided again that is the the said Henry Nafftsger should survive the above request to be void and of none Effect also In Witness whereof I have he set my hand and seal thi eighth day of September, 1823.” (2)
It would be so nice if Heinrich had mentioned some of the children who would become heirs should his wife die. Unfortunately he does not, and to add insult to injury he gives us a problem to solve when he states “shall fall to her own Children”. Possibly this alludes to children he fathered to another wife prior to his marriage to Margareth Beschtler. (But then, the “her own Children” reference means nothing else in particular perhaps.)
While searching out genealogical information on another of my ancestral lines (Lingenfelter), I found some information on this Nofsker family. It had been collected by Thomas Imler of Bedford County, PA during the 1930s and L What sources he used arid their validity is questionable since he does not make note of them in his writings, but one bit of his information caught my eye. Jonathan Nofsker had married Elizabeth Mock and their one daughter, Jane Alice married Mark Lingenfelter (which explains why the Nofsker information was to be found in the Lingenfelter family records). Jonathan was listed as a son of Henry Noffsker
(b. March 11, 176 d. September 11, 1823) and Margaret Sense (b. March 3, 1771,
d. August 3, 1836). The thing that caught my eye was the exact dates for Henry - the same as those listed for Heinrich Naftzger of Centre Co. (3)
The Bedford County information continued on by listing the children of Henry and Margaret as: Samuel married to Eve Schuck, Emanuel married to Catherine Dodson, Clara married to ________ Buzzaed, Jonathan married to flizabeth Mock, Jacob

married to Margaret Puggles, James married to Elizabeth Baker and Lucy married to Emanuel Puggles. Some of the information contained in this collection is known to be incorrect (1+), but the fact that Henry’s birth and death dates match exactly to those found in Centre County gives much substance to the assumption that the Heinrich and Margareth Naftzger of Centre County were indeed the parents of the various Nofskers who came to live in Blair County, PA.
In the Fall, 1986 issue of the Nafzger Heritage News (Vol.XV, # a feature story traced the family of Nophskers of Lancaster County, PA. In that issue the narrative reads, on page : “Exactly what happened to Henry Knophsker after the 1800 census is uncertain.” No land purchase in Centre County has yet been found to give an exact date to the appearance of Henry and Margaret in that place. The facts that Henry of Lancaster is not found on the i8io census there, and that Henry of Centre first appears on the i8io census there present a coincidence that cannot be ignored. To assume that Henry of Lancaster may have died prior to the i8io census would require that his death would appear in some sort of record, but it does not. It is equally difficult to assume that Henry of Centre appeared there from nowhere (at the age of between 2 and 65). The more logical assumption to be made is that Henry and Margaret moved from Lancaster to Centre some time between 1800 and i8io.
The Fall, 1986 issue noted that in 1799 Henry and Margaret sold four lots in May Town to a William Clark. The transaction of the sale noted that Henry and his wife, Margaret, were selling a house and the lots for 1 pounds gold. (5) Allowing for some fluctuations in the gold market at that time (as it is today even) a rough figure in dollars can be worked out. The purpose of this is to determine if the sale by Henry to William Clark was a minor transaction of some property the Nofskers owned in addition to their home or if it was a major transaction which would necessitate their removal entirely. In my collection of old books is a 1797 edition of The American Accountant. This book, published only two years prior to the Nofsker/Clark transaction, lists monetary exchange rates between Continental and European currency at that time. A denomination of Federal money in use at that time was the Eagle, a gold coin valued on the exchange market at 10 dollars. One Eagle had the standard weight of 270 grains. There are 5,760 grains per pound, and so there would be 8o6,L grains in ‘11+0 pounds of gold. That would translate into 2,982.95 Eagles, which would have been, in 1797, valued at $29,829. If the earnings of a man in the 1700s are taken into account, it is easy to assume that this sale constituted a major financial move, and likewise a major physical move for the family.
Two questions arise from the May Town property sale.. First, Henry Nofsker had purchased the property in December, 1797, so was it really their entire holdings in Lancaster County, PA, or was Henry simply in land speculation at the time? The fact that he disappears from the Lancaster census records shortly thereafter fairly answers that question; if he had other property he would surely appear in the census regardless of this sale. I would make the assumption that possibly Henry and his family, after moving into their May Town house in the winter of 1797-8 simply did not find it suitable and desired to move elsewhere (perhaps also because they could not afford the tax base in that area of the state).
The second question that comes out of the May Town sale is: if Henry and Margaret sold their property in May Town in 1799, but still appeared in the 1800 census, did they in fact move to Centre County? The sale was recorded on November 28, 1799. It is possible that the total sum of money was not paid by Mr. Clark until a month or two later, causing the Nofskers to not be able to actually move until a few months into i800. It is also possible that the person who recorded the Nofskers on the 1800 census might not have actually visited the family, but merely recorded their name and statistics in the record in a routine way. Census records are not beyond suspicion and question.
Heinrich Naftzger is listed in the Heckman Cemetery Book in Centre County, PA as dying on 11 September, 1823 and born on 11 March, 1?6L His wife, Margareth is listed there also as dying on 23 August, 1836 and born on 3 April, 1779. (6) To be eligible for military duty during the I War, men were required to

register if they were bet the ages of 8 and 53 years. Service in the Arner±can Revolution stretched between April 19, 1775 and November +, 1783. (7) In May, 1783 “Hendry Naphsker” was listed by Captain J. Anderson as being enlisted as a private, 2nd class in the Company A of the militia commanded by Captain Huston of the 2nd Regiment, Lancaster County Militia. (8) The fact that this reference dates his service to 1783 does not necessarily mean that that was the year he began his mili— tary duty. What it does mean is that he did serve in the Revolutionary War for at least six months prior to the disbanding of the armies by Congress. Men who would have served in the army during 1783 should have been born between the years 1730 and 1765 if they were to fall into the i8 to 53 age group. According to the birth date given by the Heckrnan Cemetery records, Heinrich of Centre County would have been 19 years old in the year 1783. In view of the fact that no other Henry Naftzger/ Nofsker/Naphsker appears in the census records at the same time that the one listed in 1790 and i800 did, it can be assumed that Heinrich of Centre County was the same Hendry Naphsker who served in the Lancaster County Militia.
It becomes apparent that two of the preceding assumptions would tend to support and clarify one another. In that there seems to be only one Henry to have served in the Revolution, and he would have had to have been born prior to 1766 to legally serve; and in that between Centre and Lancaster Counties wherein the name of Henry Nofsker (or variations) appears, there exist death records for only one such Henry; and in that the only one Henry’s birth date, according to the cemetery records, show a date of 17614 the conclusion can be made that the Henry of Centre County was indeed the individual who served in the Revolutionary War. If that conclusion is accepted, then the fact that Henry of Centre County was listed as serving in the Lancaster County Militia supports the contention that he was living in that county prior to (and no doubt during) his military service. Although this is not always the case, it is safe to assume that Henry did enlist in his home county militia.
Henry Naftsecker was listed in the First US Census taken in 1790 as living in May Town (within Donegal Township), Lancaster County, PA. In the next US Census, 1800, Henry Knophsker was listed in Donegal Township (May Town not being noted separately this time). (9) The 1800 Census lists the following persons within the household:
(1)	male	between	the ages	26	- ‘+5	(1755	- 177
(2)	female	“	“	“	16	— 26	(177k	— 178

(3)	female	“	‘V	??	_ o	(1790	— 1800) (10)
After the i8oo us Census, there are no references to Henry in Lancaster County,PA until 1811+ when the roll of the Company A of the 2nd Regiment included a listing of Henry Nophsker as a sergeant. It is unlikely that this Henry would be the same as the one who served at the end of the Revolutionary War. Although the Patriot Henry would only have been 50 years old, and within the age limits for service, it is very unlikely that he would have been required to serve a second time, especially during a time when the war of 1812 was winding to a close (a treaty had been proposed in August of 18114., and Henry’s service started in September of that year). (ii) The Henry listed in the i8i4 roll was no doubt Henry, Jr., who would be the (1) male listed in the i800 US Census between the ages of 10 — i6. The Fourth US Census that was taken in 1820 lists a Henry Neffsker whose family size and his own age range would indicate a birthdate between 1781+ and 1790 (definately not 176 and a family just starting out (only four children). (12) This is in the same line of thought as noted in the article, “The Nophsker Family of Lancaster County, PA” which appeared in the Fall, 1986 issue of the Nafzger Heritage News. And it is at this point in the family’s history that the article, “Heinrich N. of Centre County”, which appeared in the Winter, 1986-7 issue, picks up the line. A few simple errors appeared in the “Heinrich N. of Centre County” issue. Rather than comment on each of them singly,

Peter the P	Continued from Page One
According to a monograph on Mennonites, Peter was an ordained minister and
led the congregation in Wilmont, Canada. Later he was a bishop in both Ohio and Illinois, however they were unable to determine when he was ordained Further, because of his activities and moving from place to place, he was called ‘the Apostle”. In another article on Mennonites in Illinois, it was written that Peter the Apostle was a leader of the “Hessian” Mennonites, who “were more liberal-- they wore buttons on thei r clothes and made use of mus ical instruments “ . ( The Hessians split in 1 835 with the Amish preacher Jacob Augspurger.)
Many Amish-Mennonites resided in Butler county, OH. By 1837 some were emigrating to Ill inois . Some of the Hess ians from Ohio were the Donn, Kennels, Ottos, Brennemans, Kinsingers, Springers and Gingerichs. In 1842 Peter’s son—in-law Michael Kistler, who had been ordained by Peter in Ohio, emigrated to Illinois and settled in Dry Grove township. The Hessian Mennonites held services in their homes and Kistler was their minister. He and his followers tried for a period in the 1850 ‘ S to use the Yoder Church, which was build in 1853 . However by 1859 , there were so many disagreements, they returned to worshipping in their homes.
In 1860 Peter lived with his son Peter in Montgomery township, Woodford county, IL. His wife Barbara did not live with them. In 1880, Peter resided with his son-in-law Michael Kinsinger in Woodford county, IL.
Peter the Apostle lived near Congerville when he died September 16, 1885. He was buried at the Imhoff Cemetery in Woodford county.
