The earlist Naffzgers to emigrate to
America arrived in the mid-lBth century. Ulrich
Nafzier came in 1741; Matthias, Peter and
Rudolph in 1749; Jacob in 1750. (Hans George
Naffzier was enumerated on a 1752 ship manifest;
however his name did not appear on the list of ..; arrivals at Philadelphia, so his fate is
unknown.) All five Naffzgers initially settled
in Pennsylvania. When the First U.S. Census was
taken in 1790, no less than 11 Naffzgers were
enumerated in Pennsylvania alone. Other
Naffzgers were living in Maryland and Virginia
at that time.
The next ‘wave’ of Naffzger emigration
occurred during the second quarter of the 19th
century. We know of nine ships that carried
-	-—-	-—	-	Naffzqers from Europe, mostly they departed from
Amsterdam or	northern	Germany, to America between 1826 and 1850. Of ten
emigrant families split up and travelled separately. Say for example, two older sons may have made the initial journey, established themselves and their parents and extended families would follow, in some cases, years later.
The majority of these early 19th century Naffzger emigrants leap frogged Pennsylvania and settled in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Ontario, Canada, with Illinois being favored by most. There were a couple primary reasons for this. On the one hand, land was cheaper in those states, as opposed to Eastern states, such as Pennsylvania and Virginia. On the other hand, the western states where less populous and they had greater tolerance for religious differences and a greater capacity for absorption of the rural peasants from Europe, both of which were well suited for the Naffzgers.
When the Seventh US Census was taken in 1850, there were at least
42 Naffzgers found in Pennsylvania; 58 in Ohio; 12 in Indiana; 18 in
Illinois; and Naffzger families living in Missouri, Kentucky, Iowa and
Michigan. Of course many of these were ‘native’ Naffzgers who had left
their Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia homes earlier.
We hope we will be able to devote a featured article to each emigrant family, or group of families, who settled in the same locations. Unfortunately, this effort will require additional support and assistance from our readers. We encourage everyone who is familiar about their family’s history in the US, either through oral history or . written (such as old letters, bibles or county histories) to write to us. Please do not send us any original letters, photos, etc. We cannot assume responsibility for any valuables, real or sentimental, which could be lost or damaged. Nonetheless we encourage everyone to participate. Perhaps if we receive enough reader response, we can uncover additional information or family connection between Naffzgers.
We wish to thank the readers ho have

Judie uhaus of Lakeside, CA writes about decendents Jacob W. Nafziger
Ms Neuhaus has written the News inquiring if anyone can update her family line. Her ancestor Jacob W. Nafziger emigrated to the US about 1851 and settled in Stouts Grove township, Mc Lean Co, IL. In 1860 he was enumerated in the US Census. His family was *303 on the enumeration. Family #304 was Frederick and Barbara Naffziger from Hesse-Nassau Germany. Frederick and Barbara emigrated in 1840 and settled first in Butler County, OH before moving in 1850 and settling in Tazewell County, IL. Frederick was a son of Peter and Henriette Schonbeck) Naffziger; Barbara was also a Naffziger. Frederick and Jacob may have been cousins. Jacob may have been the son of Christian Nafziger, who in 1859 was living with Peter at Obergladbacherhof in Nassau in 185g. However before we can state this connection with complete accuracy, additional research must be
completed.	Continued on Page Eight

The following marr record for Jean Kennel and Magdeleine Navziger is actually a marriage record for Johan nes Kennel and Magdalena Nafziger, as they are known in Kennel family records today. Johannes Kennel was the son of Pienc/Pcter Kennel and Liseuc Mueller, as shown on this record.
This rccod was acquired from the Breunigweiler, Bayern, Germany, civil records of Ban and Marriage Records. The record was in French since Napoleon was Emperor at that time.

In German records, when “N.” or “N.N.” appears instead ofa given name, it means that the given name is uaknown.

Of Jean Kennel and Magdeleine Navziger
- re s s
lL the Fail and Winter, 1988 issues of the News, we wrote about the family of Jacob Naffzger who arrived in 1750. Jacob settled in Londonderry township, about two miles east of present—day Palmyra, PA. His sons Joseph, Christian arid Jacob received property from an original land warrant or from land Jacob purchased near his est Jacob’s SOfl Christian and some of his desceridents remained in the Palmyra area; the other descendents moved for bhe most part. to Ohio. Christian and his sons Christian, Joseph and John became members of Bindnagle Evangelical Lutheran Church. In 1803 Christian pledged 7 shillings & 6 pence toward the cost of a new church. In 1831 John, Michael, George, Nancy and Mary Nafzger were identified as “young members of the church. In 1836 John and Joseph Naftzer contributed to a fund to purchase a new cast iron stove. Joseph’s first corrinunion was in 1839. In 1844 he was elected deacon. The children of Joseph and Anna (Moses, Adam, Benjamin and Catharine) were baptized between 1839 and 1847. Christian and Catharine (Wagner, daughter of George) were both buried in the Bindnagie cemetery. What follows is an edited narrative of the church’s history as it was told by Israel B. Early in Bindnagle Evangelical Lutheran Church, written in February, 1984.
Three hundred years ago, German settlers began filtering into the port of Philadelphia to establish a new life for themselves, their families, and posterity. They came at the invitation of the founder of Pennsylvania, William Penn, who had only the year before received his charter for “Penn’s Woods” from King Charles II of England.
Penn’s mother was of German birth, so Penn was aware of the in- dustriousness of these sturdy people and knew they represented the type of people he needed to develop a new colony. Because of the un favorable religious, political, and economic climate in Germany and Switzerland, Pennsylvania was blessed with a migration of fine craft- smen and farmers who were an important factor in the growth and economic wealth of the future Commonwealth.
The area in which they settled was known as Londonderry, since the Scotch were here before the Germans. However, they had no knowledge of farming and readily relinquished any claims to land owned by William Penn. The Swatara Creek separates North Londonderry Township from east Flanover, and the Quittapahilla Creek divides it from North Annville Township.
These German settlers worshipped around family altars which soon became common altars. John Casper Stoever perfor pastoral acts among these groups in 1733, 1736, 1739, and 1740. As their numbers outgrew their available quarters, a member of one of the groups, Hans Bindnagle, donated five acres and twenty perches of ground for a church site on January 27, 1753. An altar cloth initialed 1113N under the date of 1754 indicated the year of the consecration of the first church.
Rev. SLoever served until Ascension Day, May 13, 1779 when he died while in the act of confirming a class of catechumens a the Hill Church, north of Cleona.
We know the log church had arched windows because one was preserv ed and placed to the left of the wine-glass pulpit in the present church. The interior of the church was painted white because we have two wooden pegs which were saved when the church was demolished and the usa lumber taken to Palmyra in 1808.
After the log church served the congregation, which grew to 162 members in 48 years, it was felt advisable to build a larger, more perma nent structure. The members committed then to subscriptions and solicited additional funds from their neighbors.
Approximately 400 subscribers of all faiths located in Derry, Lon donderry, Annville and Hanover Townships donated from payments of two shillings to 40 pounds. These payments were to be made in three in- stallments: on January 1, 1803; when the new church was under roof; and when it was completed. The cost of the whole building was ‘309 pounds, 3 shillings and 1 ‘/2 pence, or a little over $2,242.50.
As a tribute to the everlasting integrity of the German settlers, records show that but 12 of the 400 (3°/°) failed to meet their obligation. One of those who failed to met his payments was an ancestor of the writer, Thomas Oehrle (Earley) whose daughter, Anna, had just married Peter Eisenhaux-. Peter’s parents decided to move to Kansas and the young couple chose to go with them. Upon hearing of this, Thomas Oehrle decided to go with them and forgot his church subscription. From the family line of Peter and Anna emerged Dwight David Eisenhaur.
In the cemetery adjoining the church repose the bodies of those fathers and mothers who so earnestly labored and denied themselves for the church. The very earliest graves have nothing to mark them, and all we know is that loved ones sleep somewhere in the cemetery. There are 177 tombstone inscriptions recorded in William H. EgIe’s notes and queries of 1896. John Palm, one of several Revolutionary War heroes, and founder of Palinyra, is buried here. He died in 1799, the same year in which the deaths of both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson oc cured.
Apparently services were discontinued during the winter months as the church was not heated. in 1836 some of the membership prevailed upon the church to buy two cast iron coal stoves at a cost of $43.00. At the congregational meeting held to discuss the proposed purchase, two elderly ladies were strong in their opposition to the stoves. Their sound reasoning was: “Our Øarents didn’t have it, our grandparents didn’t have it, and we don’t need it either. ‘ ‘ Unfortunately for the ladies, when the votes were counted it was found that, they had been defeated.
The women were not good losers When the stoves were purchased and installed, the ladies got wind of it and that Sunday, each appeared in church carrying a fan which they used vigorously throughout the ser vice. The pastor noticed it and felt he was in for trouble. lie was right! At the close of the service, the two women caine up to him and complain- ed about how uncomfortable it was in the church. They couldn’t stand it, wouldn’t stand it, and soruehthing had to he done! ‘l’he pr left them talk until they were out of breath and then calmly remarked, ‘ ‘ Yes
well, ladies, there is no fire in the StoVes this uiornii
“1836 HeaLing System”
Ms Pat Ciokajlo of Michigan writes about Johannes, grandson of Jacob of 1750.
In the Fall and Winter issues of 1988, we featured aoc Naftzger, who ininigrated in 1750 aboard the ship Brotherhood. Jacob settled in Londonderry township, near present-day Palmyra. In his will Jacob named Sour children, Joseph, Christian, Jacob and Barbara. Joseph lived his entire life on a piece of property bordering Jacobs original land tract. Joseph di2d in 1832. His will named wife Anna and children Abraham, Joseph, Johannes, Magdalena, Jacob, Barbara, the then deceased Christian and finally an unnamed daughter who was the wife of Jacob Mahr (Moore). The majority of Joseph’s descendents moved to Ohio.
Johannes (John Sr) was born in 1780 in Londonderry township, PA. In 1804 he married Elisabeth Rider while in PA. By 1807 he resided in cher township in Harrsion County, OH. In 1811 or 1812 he lived in Chester township where he had built a grist-mill for grinding grain. In 1814 (or 1818) he movedto Congress township, Wayne County, where he built a grist and saw mill on the Killbuck river. Subsequently he added another grist and another saw mill.
John was always a farmer and miller. He was also one of the original founders of the United Erethern Church in Wayne County (which for a period met in his mill) and for many years its main sustainer and supoorter. Johannes Naftzger died in August, 1836.
John’s first wife died in 1832, and left him with eight children, four of whom were minors. Shortly after he married Catharine Haag, a native of Germany. They had two sons. She died prior to 1864 and he married Elisabeth Vandemark, with who he had no children.

Jacob must have married prior to his emigration to the US. His eldest daughter Elisabeth was born in Germany. Jacob’s wife Elisabeth may have also been a Naffsinger, as Edward Nafziger’s Certificate of Death lists her maiden as Naffsinger. The Naffzigers were enumerated in the 1870 and 1880 census’. Where and when Jacob and Elisabet died is unknown. A tentative family sketch follows. If anyone can add additional information on this family, please write the News.
