Subject: __ ___ ____ Johan Heinrick Mathias ESCH (192, 5G Grf)

Descendants researching one of his sons

Source: __ ___ ____ Some of the notes incoporated with this family are from the web site and correspondence with Mary Ash; Descendants of Henry Ash Sr (web site), Mary Lowe Ash mhash@comteck.com, : RR2 Box 63 Peru IN 46970 - (765) 473-5913 (1999 info) http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/a/s/h/Mary-H-Ash/GENE10-0001.html.

Story: __ ___ ____ The "Family Tradition" is the usual chestnut about 'three brothers", and as usual, there is a grain of truth, but not all of it is true - they are not Scotch-Irish. First are some examples of the "tradition".

In the book - The Purkey Family and the Delaney Family by Sandra L. Delaney (Allen Co., Fort Wayne, IN, Library) a genealogy of Adam Ash is described:

"Henry Ash was the brother of Adam Ash. They came to the United States along with a third brother, John, in about 1770. Henry first settled with his brothers in Chester County, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. He patented land with his brother, Adam, in Bethel Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania, in 1789. He served during the Revolutionary War in the Chester County militia and enlisted in the Bedford County militia in 1781. In 1778, he took the Patriots' Oath of Fidelity and Support in Washington County, Maryland. Apparently, he ultimately settled in Washington County. Henry married Catherine ??, probably prior to his immigration to the United States. They had five children: Abraham, died ca. 1833 in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Married Catherine ??. Jacob; David; Henry, born ca. 1760 in Germany; died in 1849 in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Married Barbara Miller (ca. 1765-1849) in ca. 1784; John, born February 8, 1775, died ca. 1830 in Washington County, Maryland. Married Mary ??."

continuing..."Adam Ash was born in Germany in March 1744. He is said to have been of English (Scotch-Irish) ancestry on his father's side and German on his mother's side. He and his wife, Catherine Yost, sailed from Amsterdam, Holland, to settle in the United States about 1770. Adam married Catherine in Germany in ca. 1768, before their immigration. Catherine was born in Germany in 1749. Adam was accompanied to America by his two brothers, John and Henry, and their families. The passage took about six weeks, and they encountered many storms which drove the ship back toward Holland. Adam's and Catherine's first child Christopher, was born on the voyage over. The three brothers settled first in Chester County, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. While living in the state, Adam served as an American soldier in the Revolutionary War. He served as a private in Captain Parker's company, 2nd Battalion, of the Chester County militia from August 5, 1776 to September 10, 1776. He then moved westward to Bedford County. A land warrant was issued by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for 200 acres in Bethel Township, Bedford County, on November 4, 1789 to Henry and Adam Ash. In return, the brothers agreed to pay the state ten pounds per 100 acres "in Gold, Silver, Paper Money of this State, or certificates." The land, situated on both sides of Tonoloway Creek, was surveyed April 30, 1795 for 286 acres 107 perches. This particular parcel of land was later given to Henry Ash, Jr., by his father, Henry (brother of Adam), and is mentioned in Henry's will, dated January 6, 1801 in Washington County, Maryland."

In the book - The George Morris Family of Ten Mile, With Genealogical Charts For Other Affiliated Families, A Story of The Pioneer Families of The Ten Mile Valley In Harrison County West Virginia by Ollie B Morris and Eva Ruth Morris copyright 1967. [my Evd 180] On page 294 it says:

"Three Ash brothers named John, Adam and Henry were of Scotch-Irish nationality, but in their younger days had gone to Holland where they seem to have married and lived for awhile. Several years before the Revolutionary War these brothers with their families embarked for America sailing from Amsterdam, Holland. After a six-weeks voyage they arrived and settled in Chester County, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia."

The Pennsylvanische Geschichts-Schreiber newspaper, published by Christopher Sauer, mentions in an article the following advertisement:

"April 1,1755. Johann Wilhelm Esch, from Runckelischen Land, arrived in America a year and a half ago. His brother Henrich arrived last autumn, and is serving with Georg Schmitt, opposite the printer, in Germantown. He seeks his brother." The author of "More Palatine Families" comments "The origins of the family, then, probably would be at or near 6251 Runckel, home of several 1709er emigrants. As Henrich Esch of Pennsylvania had been looking for his brother for over six months, there is the strong possibility that Johann Wilhelm Esch may have settled in another colony. The Red Hook Lutheran Church book in Dutchess Co., N.Y., notes that a John Wilhelmus Esch joined the church there June 5, 1757. Wilhelm Esch and his wife Elisabetha Dopp are then found in other churches in the Hudson Valley, such as the New Hackensack Reformed, Schaghticok Reformed, and Poughkeepsie Reformed Churches.

"'Heinrich Esch' arrived October 21, 1754 on the ship Friendship, Charles Ross, Captain. The ship sailed from Amsterdam, with the last port being Gosport, England. The inhabitants of the ship were from Franconia and Hesse, and there were 7 Roman Catholics." The ship landed in Philadelphia.

Why these men were thought to be of "English (Scotch-Irish)" ancestry is unknown because Esch is a German name, they were associated with Germans traditons and churches, and Adam wrote one deed in German. The "Runckelischen Land" clue was invaluable since it was what led to the Runkel church records where the marriage of Adam and Catharine was found and eventually broke open the ancestry of the three brothers..

Marriage: cir __ ___ 1750 Catherine (__________) (13969) (1734- ); Germany.

Immigratn: 21 Oct 1754 Henrick Esch (List 224A) A list of foreigners imported in the Ship Friendship, from Amsterdam, but last from Gosport [England]. Qualified 21st October, 1754. List 224C at the State House at Philadelphia, Monday the 21st day of October, 1754. Present: The Worshipful Charles Willing, Esq., Mayor. The foreigners whose names are underwritten, imported in the ship Friendship, Captain Charles Ross, from Amsterdam, but last from Gosport, did this day take the usual Qualifications to the government 7 Roman Catholicks (sic). Qualification No. 117. Whole freights 301. From Franconia and Hesse. (Immigrants age 16 and over were required to sign an oath of Allegiance upon arriving in America. There were 117 signatures October 19, 1754 (Hennrich Esch signed name).) According to directions, we have examined carefully every mariner and passenger on board the Ship Friendship, Captain Ross from Amsterdam and found but one person sick, so that we do not apprehend any danger to the inhabitants of the city by admitting the people to land in it immediately. To His Honor Theo. Graeme, The Governor Th. Bond. Endorsed. Doctor's certificate of the Ship Friendship, 15th October 1754.

Ship's captains usually listed all male passengers over age 16, although some captains also listed female passengers. Heinrick Esch's voiage indicated there were 117 male passengers, and perhaps as many as 184 other passengers. Children were usually listed as "1/2 freights". Spellings of names on ships logs are dubious if a captain, not fluent in the foreign language, recorded the names as he heard them. The signature may also be difficult to read, and some passengers sign with an X. The above H. Esch apparently signed his name.

Religion: __ ___ ____ Salem Reformed Church, Conocheque Township, Washington Co., Maryland; In Salem Reformed Church, records indicate that Henry and Adam attended that church.

Natlzation: 10 Sep 1765 Ann Arundel Co., Maryland; Henry was naturalized at All Hallows Parish (Church of England).

Residence: 10 Mar 1766 Frederick Co., Maryland; From "Settlers of Maryland 1766-1783", Peter Coldham, p. 4: Henry Ash, Frederick County, Chance Tract, 112 acres, March 10, 1766, Ref.--BC29/275, BC30/273. Maryland Land Office Records.

Military: __ ___ 1778 Washington Co., Maryland; Henry took the Patriots' Oath of Fidelity and Support in Salem Reformed Church, Washington County, Maryland, given by the Worshipful Richard Davis' Returns 1778.

Residence: __ ___ 1784 Bedford Co., Pennsylvania; In "Bedford County, Pennsylvania 1779 Tax List and 1784 Census":

"Henry Ash, Bethel Township (1784 Census) - 75 acres, 1 dwelling, 11 whites" This is probably the elder Henry. He would be about 44, and the younger Henry would be 24, too young for 10 or 11 children. There is no other evidence that the elder Henry lived in Bedford County, although many of the Revolutionary war veterans settled in Bedford County after the war. Adam Ash, listed in the same township, with one dwelling, 8 whites, 150 acres, 3 horses and 5 cattle. Adam Ash from Bedford County served in the war in the Maryland Militia. Adam and Henry purchased 200 acres together in Bedford County November 4, 1789. Part of the confusion may have involved the Mason-Dixon line. Though the land between Pennsylvania and Maryland was settled by Mason and Dixon earlier, the boundaries were not completely implemented until after the Revolutionary War.

Military: __ ___ ____ In the "Index to Volunteer Soldiers 1784-1811", the following appears: Cpl. Henry Ash, Smith's Co., 1st US Regt (Lt. Col. Harmar) 1785-1790

In "Bedford County Pennsylvania in the American Revolution", p. 128, the following appears: Henry Ash, Private, Artillery, Philadelphia County Militia, Capt. James Lang's Company. Buried on Hervey Friedline Farm, Allenvale, Pennsylvania. [second entry Henry the son?].

Residence: __ ___ 1785 Bethel Township, Bedford Co., Pennsylvania; Bedford Archives Volume 3, page 81: Tax Lists of Bedford County 1785, Bethel Township: Henry Ash 125.

Residence: 03 Feb 1789 Bethel Township, Bedford Co., Pennsylvania; [Kathryn's Evd 285] Militia rolls - In the PA Archives 6th series vol 3, starting on page 33 is "A list of the inhabitants of Bethel Township made subject by law to the performance of milita duty, taken by Peter Smith the 3rd, Feby 1789. Adam and Henry Ash are on this list. [Their neighbor George Hoopingarner of the land record are also on the list]. I also have from another book [not sure of title] the pages showing Adam in Captain Parker's company in 1776, but nothing with a 1781 date stated in other sources. And those other sources don't say anything about 1789, so the 1781 date is probably in error.

Deed: 04 Nov 1789 Bethel Township, Bedford Co., Pennsylvania; In Bedford Archives Volume 4, page 4: Original Warrants, Patents and Drafts filed at the Fulton County Courthouse, McConnellsburg, Bethel Township, Ash, Adam and Henry. The contents are as follows:

"Whereas Henry Ash and Adam Ash of the County of [not filled in] hath requested to take up two hundred acres of land, including an improvement adjoining George Hoopingarner on the south, Wm. Layton on the east, Adam Smith on the North and John Whipkies Estate on the west in Bethel Township in the County of Bedford (provided the land is not within the sast purchase made of the Indians) for which he agrees to pay, immediately, into the office of the Receiver General, for the use of this State, at the rate of Ten Pounds per hundred acres, in gold, silver, paper money of this State, or certificates; agreeable to an act of Assembly, passed the first day of April, 1784: Interest to commence from the first day of October 1779. These are, therefore, to authorize and require you to survey, or cause to be surveyed, unto the said Henry Ash and Adam Ash at the place aforesaid, according to the method of Townships appointed, the said quantity of acres, if not already surveyed, or appropriated, and to make return thereof into the Secretary's Office, in order for confirmation; for which this shall be your Warrant. In witness whereof his Excellency Thomas Mifflin, Esq., President of the Supreme Executive Council, hath hereunto set his hand, and caused the left Seal of the Said Commonwealth to be affixed, the fourth Day of November in the Year 1789."

[Kathryn's Evd 161] - On reverse of document it says "Ret 9 Mar 1848". I also made notes from backup documents regarding this land [Evd 661]. "Color" only, doesn't provide any further information.

Census1790: __ ___ 1790 Washington Co., Maryland; Census shows a Henry Ash with a household of 2 males over age 16, two under age 16, and 3 females and 1 slave. This must have been the elder Henry, having a wife, one son and two daughters. The younger Henry was born about 1760 and died in 1850, so he would have been too young to have this large family. In the 1800 census in Washington County, Henry Ash had 2 males between 16 and 26, one male 45 and older, one female between 16 and 26, one female 45 and older, and 3 slaves.

Will: 06 Jan 1801 Washington Co., Maryland; Will Book A, pp. 437-438, Washington County Wills, has the following:

Immigratn: cir __ ___ 1753 Runckelischen Land; The Pennsylvanische Geschichts-Schreiber newspaper, published by Christopher Sauer, mentions in an article the following advertisement:

"April 1,1755. Johann Wilhelm Esch, from Runckelischen Land, arrived in America a year and a half ago. His brother Henrich arrived last autumn, and is serving with Georg Schmitt, opposite the printer, in Germantown. He seeks his brother." The author of "More Palatine Families" comments "The origins of the family, then, probably would be at or near 6251 Runckel, home of several 1709er emigrants. As Henrich Esch of Pennsylvania had been looking for his brother for over six months, there is the strong possibility that Johann Wilhelm Esch may have settled in another colony.

Figuring backwords, "year and a half ago" from Apr 1755 would make John's arrival about Sep 1753.
