Johannes Hershberger1

b. 3 October 1770, d. 2 April 1853
ChartsAncestry of David Kipp Melat
     Johannes Hershberger was born on 3 October 1770 in Pennsylvania.1,2 He married Christina Elizabeth Fehler, daughter of John Jacob Fehler and Anna Eva Behney, in 1795.1 He died on 2 April 1853 in New Liberty, Green Township, Summit County, Ohio, at age 82.2 He was buried in East Liberty Cemetery, Green Township, Summit County, Ohio.2
     Johannes Hershberger was known as John Harshbarger.3
     John Harshbarger and Christina Harshbarger were living in the vicinity of Bethel Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, between 1798 and 1803 when their older children were being baptised in the Moravian church there. Since the church was located near the border between Berks County and the area of Dauphin County which is now part of Lebanon County, it has not been determined in which county John and his family were living.4 He and Christina Harshbarger moved to Miles Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania, by 6 May 1804 when their daughter Catherine was baptised in the Brush Valley Union Church in Rebersburg, Miles Township.5 He owned 50 acres in Miles Township. By February 1822, he had sold the land to a Henry Mayer. It was probably at that time the the Harshbarger family moved to Ohio as John did not appear on the 1823 Miles Township tax list.6 He and Christina Harshbarger lived in Green Township, Stark County, Ohio, where they owned 69.90 acres. This area became part of Summit County, Ohio in 1840.7
     John Harshbarger was a weaver in Miles Township, Centre County.6
     John Harshbarger and Christina Harshbarger probably raised their grandson Johannes Hershberger He is probably the John Harshbarger listed as an heir in the distribution of Johannes Harshbarger's estate.3
     John Harshbarger died intestate (without a will). The Count appointed his son-in-law John Castetter to serve as administrator on 1 August 1853. Bondsmen were Samuel Vandersaul and Elias Stoever. The appraisers were W.B. Osborn, Adam Yerrick, and W.W. Kepler. The appraisal was made 6 August 1853 and each appraiser received fifty cents for his work.
     The Inventory consisted of the following:

          8 1/2 yards of Full Cloth at 62 1/2 valued at $5.31
          3 yards of Full Cloth valued at $1.88
          1 stand valued at $1.25
          1 chest valued at $1.00
          2 rocking chairs valued at .20
          1 small box of Sundries valued at .12
          1 Pair Sheep Shears and Trowel valued at .42
          1 Pair Shoes valued at $1.00
          1 Bed Stead and Bedding valued at $7.00
          4 Family Books valued at $1.00
          Total appraised value of John Harshbarger's personal estate $19.18.

     On 30 January 1863, the administrator distributed $1104.20 among John Harshbarger's ten heirs or $110.42 each. The following is the specific accounting of the distribution:

     George Harshbarger was dead but his heirs named WIlliam Harshbarger to receive the money due them as heirs of George Harshbarger, deceased.
     Thomas Harshbarger was dead, but his heirs, Rachel Green, wife of Thomas Green, Leah Dibly, wife of Henry Dibly, and Sarah Fuch, each received $27.60 on 5 January 1864.
     Leonard Harshbarger was deceased but his two son were paid his share,
     Henry Harshbarger was dead but his three sons received his share. Urias Harshbarger had received $25 from his grandfather's estate on 22 December 1862, and $11.80 on 7 February 1863. Daniel Harshbarger received his full share of $36.80 on 30 January 1863. The share ($36.80) for James Harshbarger was paid to his guardian, James Baughman, on 22 June 1863.
     Eva, wife of Samuel Long was paided $110.42.
     Susanna McCammons had received $96.20 on10 March 1857. The balance of $14.22 was paid her on 30 January 1863.
     Catherine, wife of John Castetter received $110.42.
     Christina Kepler had previously received $100, the sum of $10.42 was paid in 1863.
     Mary Rodebaugh received $110.42.
     John Harshbarger received $110.42.

     Among the bills paid by the administrator was a bill paided on 16 September 1853 for two tombstones for $26 and sockets for the two tombstones for $3 for John Harshbarger and his wife.3

Jacob Baum
     Jacob Baum was born on 16 June 1795 in Cumru Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania.2 He was the son of Johannes Baum and Elizabeth (?)1 He was baptized on 10 September 1795 in Trinity Lutheran Church, Reading, Berks County.2 He married Elizabeth Mark, daughter of Rudolph Mark and Barbara Walterberger.3 He died on 3 May 1865 in Oakland Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania, at age 69.4 Jacob and Elizabeth were buried in Demspeytown Lutheran Cemetery, Oakland Township, Venango County.5
     Jacob Baum was living with his father's family in 1810 in Upper Mahantonga Township, Berks County.6 He was probably living with his brother Peter in 1820 in Haines Township, Centre County.7 He was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census of Haines Township, Centre County. The household consisted of 1 male under 5, 1 male 30-40, 1 female 30-40.8 He and Elizabeth Baum moved to Venango County, Pennsylvania, circa 1837. The area where they settled was part of Plum Township until 1842 when it fell within the newly formed Oakland Township. They remained in this area the rest of their lives.9,10,11,12 He purchased 31 acres in Plum Township, Venango County, in 1837 from Peter Dempsey for $188.50. This land was located at Dempseytown where the Wallaceville Road meets the Franklin-Cherrytree Road.13 He was listed as the head of a family on the 1840 Census of Plum Township, Venango County. The household consisted of 1 male 5-10, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 40-50, 1 female 5-10, 1 female 40-50.10 He was taxed for for 70 acres, 1 mare and 2 cows in Oakland Township, Venango County, in 1842.14 He was taxed for 42 acres, formerly of Peter Dempsey, in addition to the 70 acre farm in Oakland Township in 1847.15 He was listed as the head of a family on the 1850 Census of Oakland Township, Venango County. The household consisted of Jacob Baum 55, Elizabeth 55, Daniel 14, Maria Cheers 12.11 He was taxed for an additional 23 acres for a total of 131 acres in Oakland Township in 1854. He was also taxed for a new house.16 He was listed as the head of a family on the 1860 Census of Oakland Township, Venango County. The household consisted of Jacob, his wife Elizabeth, son Daniel, and granddaughter Emma D. Frankenberger.12 He was taxed for for a new barn in 1860.17
     Jacob's sons Samuel and Daniel made their homes on Jacob's land. In writing his will on 6 January 1858, seven years before his death, Jacob willed that his lands be divided between them. Samuel was bequeathed the 58 acres of land, known as the Dempsey lot, on which he resided. Samuel was also to take possession of the Weidner lot. Daniel was bequeathed "forty Acres of land purchased of Long [probably Samuel Long] and Ten Acres of the Dempsey Lot; lying west of the Dempsetown and Wallaceville Road; and the one half of the lot known by the name of the Weidner Lot." However, at least three years before Jacob's death in 1865, Jacob's land began to be assessed to Samuel and Daniel. In 1863 and in 1868, after Jacob's death, Samuel was assessed for 111 acres and Daniel for 63 acres which indicates that somewhere along the line Jacob, Samuel or Daniel purchased an additional 43 acres. In his will, Jacob also provided for the care of his wife Elizabeth following his death and for the fair compensation for his daughter Sarah. The primary care of Elizabeth fell to their son Daniel. Jacob willed that "during her natural life, the one third of everythng raised on the lands to which I bequeath to my son Daniel" was to go to the support of Elizabeth. For only two years after Jacob's death, one third of everything raised on Samuel's lands were to go to Elizabeth's support. However, "if the one third raised on the said lands that I bequeath to my son Daniel should at any time be insufficient to support my wife - that my son Samuel then in that care shall be required to give her a third." Elizabeth also was willed "all of the household furnature and other items, not particularly named and otherwise not disposed of; as also the one half of the house and cellar." Jacob also willed that his "sons shall find and chop; ready for the stove; a sufficient quantity of fire wood for" Elizabeth. Concerning Jacob's daughter Sarah, Samuel was to pay her four hundred dollars. She was also to be paid seven hundred and five dollars by both Samuel and Daniel.18,19
      In 1868, land from Jacob's estate was deeded to the Oakland Township School District for the building of a school.20 He gave four acres in Dempseytown, Oakland Township, Venango County on circa 1849 to the Evangelical Lutheran church for the building of the church.21 Jacob and Elizabeth were members of the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Dempseytown.22

Elizabeth Mark Baum
     Elizabeth Mark was born circa 22 February 1794 in Pennsylvania.3 She was the daughter of Rudolph Mark and Barbara Walterberger.1,2 She married Jacob Baum, son of Johannes Baum and Elizabeth (?).1 She died on 11 May 1875 in Oakland Township, Venango County.3 Elizabeth and Jacob were buried in Demspeytown Lutheran Cemetery, Oakland Township, Venango County.4
     Elizabeth Baum and Jacob Baum moved to Venango County, Pennsylvania, circa 1837. The area where they settled was part of Plum Township until 1842 when it fell within the newly formed Oakland Township. They remained in this area the rest of their lives.5,6,7,8 She was named a benefitiary in the will of her husband Jacob Baum. According to the will, the primary care of Elizabeth fell to their son Daniel. Jacob willed that "during her natural life, the one third of everythng raised on the lands to which I bequeath to my son Daniel" was to go to the support of Elizabeth. For only two years after Jacob's death, one third of everything raised on Samuel's lands were to go to Elizabeth's support. However, "if the one third raised on the said lands that I bequeath to my son Daniel should at any time be insufficient to support my wife - that my son Samuel then in that care shall be required to give her a third." Elizabeth also was willed "all of the household furnature and other items, not particularly named and otherwise not disposed of; as also the one half of the house and cellar." Jacob also willed that his "sons shall find and chop; ready for the stove; a sufficient quantity of fire wood for" Elizabeth.9,10 Elizabeth and Jacob were members of the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Dempseytown.11 She was enumerated in the household of Daniel Baum on the 1870 Census of Oakland Township, Venango County.12
