Introduction

We know nothing of this family before its arrival from Germany to America, for by the time its history was first recorded at the end of the nineteenth century, most (if not all) of the third generation of the family had already passed away, and no tradition regarding its origin had been preserved.
    In America the Flachs settled at German Valley (now Long Valley), New Jersey. An explanation of some of the place-names we shall encounter is given in the History of Morris County, New Jersey, with illustrations and biographical sketches of prominent citizens and pioneers (New York, 1882), p. 372, where it states: “The slope to the south from Schooley’s Mountain is abrupt, varying from 400 to 600 feet in a distance of about three-quarters of a mile, and faces a range of hills which rise more gradually to nearly the same elevation. These ranges in the southern part are known as Fox Hill, and between them and Schooley’s Mountain, is a valley, which in this township is called German Valley and is about eight miles in length.”
    There were certainly other Flachs (etc.) in New York, if not in New Jersey, at an early date. A Johannes Flack served as a baptismal sponsor in the Reformed Dutch Church at Stone Arabia, N.Y., on 25 June 1762.[1] A Henry Flack had licence to marry in 1779.[2] Five Flacks served in New York in the Revolutionary War.[3]
    This family has a Canadian branch founded by a grandson of the immigrant, John Philip Flock; and in addition, two daughters of the immigrant also came, namely Christina (Flach) Hansel (who came by 1799) and Margaret (Flach) Dean (who came in 1801, according to family tradition). These two sisters settled not too far apart in the Niagara Peninsula area.
    Cecelia and Roland Botting included a brief appendix on the “Flack” family in pp. 27-28 of their booklet The Deans of Gainsboro Township (s.l., ca. 1975). They there cite what seems to be the only book-length work on this family ever written, Jacob Divers Flack’s The Flocks (1938), a very rare work, of which there is a copy in the Library of Congress, but which we have not seen.[4] However, much of Bottings’ information on the early generations appears to have been taken from the memoir of the “Flock” family in Theodore Freylinghuysen Chambers, The Early Germans of New Jersey (1895),[5] to which we have had access and considerable recourse. The same is presumably true of the brief record of the “Flock” family in pp. 129-30 of Eugene A. Singer & John Singer, A Singer family of colonial Vermont and Canada, including the Overholt, Staats, Hunsberger, Slough, Will, Hertzel, Terryberry, Dufford, Swackhammer, Snyder, Freas, Moore, Flock, Dean, Boddecker and Dooley families, 3rd ed. (Lahaina, Hawaii: privately published, 2001).
    The interested reader should however consult Richard and Sheila [née Crowder] Bauer, Descendants of Andreas Flock (last revised 2002), which uses primary sources we have not seen, such as genealogical manuscripts by F. Verne Flock and by Nellie (Flock) Simons and her daughter Mildred (Simons) Payne, and traces many lines to a much more recent period than what we have attempted. Indeed, had we become aware of their research at an early stage in our own investigations, we should have avoided covering so much of the same ground. (In their notes, the name Simons appears as Simmonds, a mistake kindly pointed out to us by Mildred Simons Payne’s granddaughter, Cheryl Chapman Workman.)[6]
    Since the first five generations of this family are not very large, we have included everything we have found on the male line up to that point. To what is given in Chambers we have been able to add some details from more recent writings, and in particular from Canadian sources. The data from German Valley tombstones is mainly from a transcript said to have been made ca. 1900 by Miss Ginevra Freeman, which along with other valuable transcripts of church and cemetery records is available at the Morris County, NJ GenWeb site at http://www.rootsweb.com/~njmorris/.[7]

Acknowledgements

I should like to thank my friend and kinswoman (but not herself a Flach descendant), Mrs. Mavis (Van Schoonhoven) Menzies, of Winnipeg, Manitoba, for the loan a number of years ago of a copy of Chambers’s Early Germans of New Jersey, before I acquired my own copy. The marriage record of Margaret Flach and John Dean in the Zion Lutheran Church was kindly verified for us by Marietta Pickell (who is not a Flach or Dean descendant). The photographs of the ruins Union Church in Long Valley were kindly provided by the late Peggy (Dean) Teeple, of Sarnia, Ontario — we are grateful to Richard Welch for bringing to our attention a serious error in an earlier version of these note, which misidentified the church.
    The account of Christina (Flach) Hansel was largely written by John Beatty. The account of Margaret (Flock) Read was contributed by Esther Doyle Read, a great-great-great-grandniece of the subject’s husband. The account of Andrew and Esther (Cook) Flock was much improved and expanded by their descendant, Brian Gage. The account of the Petrie/Patrey family was greatly improved by information provided by Brad Hurley, of Manchester, Connecticut, who has placed us further in his debt by the publication of this family’s valuable bible record (see the Appendix), and also by materials supplied by Mike Jones. Information on the family of Margaret Hansel and George Wallace was provided by two descendants, Jason Wallace and Robert Bruce Wallace, Jr. A correction concerning Jonathan Obadiah Taylor, and information on his parentage, was sent by Wendy Elliott. Deborah Glover helped develop the account of the William Flock who married Catherine Glover.

Photos by the late Peggy (Dean) Teeple, included by kind permission.

1. Andreas1 Flach, of Flocktown, German Valley (now Long Valley[8]), Roxbury (now Washington) Tp., Morris Co., N.J., said to have been b. 9 Sept. 1712 (IGI), d. (intestate) shortly before 3 April 1779 at Schooley’s Mountain, Roxbury (now Washington) Tp., and buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, German Valley (now Long Valley). He m. by 1736, Anna Maria Schüler,[9] b. ca. 1717, d. 1810 at German Valley. There was in the neighboring township of Tewksbury a Philip Schuyler (1718?-1784), buried in Fairmont Presbyterian Cemetery, who despite the Dutch spelling of his surname has been said to have been of German origin; but we have found no evidence that he and Anna Maria were related.[10]
    Andreas Flach, along with two men both named Hans Flach, were among “the foreigners … imported in the Ship Speedwell, Captn James Creaugh, from Rotterdam, but last from Cowes in England,” who came to Philadelphia in 1749. The ship’s manifest alludes to “240 souls from Wirtembergh, Alsace & Hanau,” but only lists the 91 family heads; it may however be presumed that he had been accompanied by his wife and four eldest children. On 25 Sept. 1749 at the Court House at Philadelphia, he, along with the two men named Hans Flach and the other adult males, “did … take the usual Qualifications to the Government,” i.e. the oath of allegiance.[11] They remained in Philadelphia long enough for the families of Andreas, Hans Flach, Hans Flach Jr., and a Ludwig Flach, to be enumerated in the 1749 census; the 1751 census lists only a Matheis Flach.[12] It is not known whether any of these other Flachs were related to Andreas.
    Soon after this, Andreas Flach and his wife went to New Jersey, and settled at German Valley. He and his son Matthias bought 600 acres of land from Samuel Furness in the Boynton Tract, Roxbury (now Washington) Tp., Morris Co., and as they were the largest landholders in the area it became known as Flocktown.[13] Their neighbors there included Matthias Thomas, whose son John married Anna Flach, daughter of the immigrant.
    In 1774 the Reformed and Lutheran congregations of German Valley banded together to replace the log church they had been sharing with one of stone, and “Andrew Flacky” was one of the signers of the agreement.[14] Parts of the Old Stone Union Church still stand, but it is in ruins.[15]
    Andreas Flach is said to have removed later to Schooley’s Mountain, where he died. Letters of administration on his estate were granted on 3 April 1779 to Andrew Flock [Jr.] and Philip Crater [the deceased’s son-in-law, husband of Barbara Flach], and his estate was inventoried on 8 April following, though the accounts were not filed until 2 April 1781 (at Roxbury). In addition to typical livestock and farming implements, and materials associated with bee-keeping, the inventory lists not only “carpenters tools” but — what is more unusual — “shoomakers tools” and “shooleader” (shoe-leather), suggesting that Andreas Flach may have been a cobbler. A list of payments from the estate, which was valued at a little over £310, includes the names of Anna Flock, Christiana [sic] Flock, and Margarit Flock, who were apparently all of the unmarried daughters (probably not in order of birth).[16]
    Known issue (first four born in Germany; order revised from the account given by Chambers):

  1. 2Andreas Flach, Jr., b. 20 Oct. 1736 in Germany.
  2. Anna Catharina Flach,[17] b. 14 Feb. 1741/2 in Germany, d. (testate) 1 March 1823,[18] aged 81 years, and buried at German Valley. She m. 5 May 1768, Anthony Shankle [Schenckel], of Sussex Co., b. 22 July 1746, d. (testate) 2 April 1810,[19] son of Heinrich Schenckel, of Roxbury Township.[20] In her will she refers to herself as “Anne Catherine Shankel,” while her tombstone calls her “Catharine Shankle.” Known issue:
    1. Catharine Shankle, b. 25 July 1772, d. 16 July 1860. She m. John Castner [or Kastner]; no further details.
    2. Elisabeth Shankle, not stated to have married.
    3. (probably) “Anthony Shankle Jr.,” b. ca. 8 March 1785, d. 16 June 1806, “aged 21 years, 3 months, 8 days,” and buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He is not named by Chambers.
  3. Barbara Flach, b. 1744 in Germany, d. (intestate) 14 July 1841, aged 97 years. She m. before 1766, Philip Creter or Crater,[21] of Roxbury Tp., Morris Co., N.J., b. 30 June 1744, d. (testate) 30 Sept. 1797,[22] son of Morris Crater [Moritz Kreeter], who lived near Fox Hill Presbyterian Church, by the latter’s wife Elisabeth ____.[23] As noted above, Philip Crater was one of the administrators of the estate of his father-in-law in 1779. The will of Philip “Greater” of Roxbury Tp., Morris Co., dated 26 Nov. 1795 and provied 6 Nov. 1797, mentions wife, Barbara, sons Morris, John, Matthias. Intererestingly the estate included both a “weave shop and loom with all geers” and a “blacksmith shop,” besides a “home plantation of 440 acres with buildings.” An inventory of the estate of the widow “Barbara Crater” was made in 1841.[24] Known issue:
    1. Morris Crater (III), b. 14 Feb. 1766, d. 12 May 1850, owner of a forge on the Hacklebarney River; his estate was inventoried in 1850.[25] He m. before 1790, Anna Stephens, and had 12 children, for whom see the Creeter genealogy, pp. 50-51.
    2. John Crater, of Fox Hill, farmer, b. 22 Sept. 1768, d. 20 June 1825. He m. 1 Nov. 1788, Anna Mary Schenckel, younger sister (or perhaps half-sister) of Anthony Schenckel aforesaid, and daughter of Heinrich Schenckel and Elizabeth Bercott. They had 4 children, for whom see the Creeter genealogy, p. 51.
    3. Matthias Crater, of Glen Gardner, b. 12 Dec. 1773, d. 20 June 1855 (?) in Wayne County, New York. He m. (1) Sophia M. Auble, (2) Mary Fritts, (3) Mrs. ____ Vandercook, (4) Mrs. Deborah (Shippy?) Still. He had nine children by his first wife and seven by his second, for details of whom see the Creeter genealogy, pp. 51-52, etc. Matthias Crater and his first wife were the great-great-grandparents of Joseph Force Crater (1889-?), the Judge Crater whose mysterious disappearance in 1930 was the subject of a huge investigation, spawned at least two books, and gave rise to the phrase “to pull a Crater.”[26]
    4. Mary Elizabeth Crater, b. 29 Sept. 1782, d. 12 May 1793, and buried in the old cemetery at Fairmount.
  4. 3Matthias Flach, b. 6 March 1745/6 in Germany.
  5. 4Elizabeth Flach, b. 1749-50, m. Wilhelm Petrie.
  6. Margaret Flach, b. in N.J. ca. 22 March 1752,[27] d. 6 March 1839, “aged 86 years, 11 months, 14 days” (according to the Dean family bible record), and buried in the Presbyterian Churchyard, St. Anns, Gainsborough Tp., Lincoln Co., U.C. She m. 19 March 1781 in Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., N.J.,[28] John Dean (of unknown parentage), said to have been b. 1 March 1754, d. 19 Sept. 1827, also buried in the Presbyterian Churchyard at St. Anns. They are said to have lived at Fox Hill before leaving New Jersey for Canada in July 1801.[29] This statement receives support from the fact that a John Dean bought 112 acres of land near Fox Hill in 1783, and sold them to an Andrew Shangle in 1801.[30] For further details see DEAN.
  7. 5[Maria?] Christina Flach, probably b. ca. 1753; m. Andreas Hansel.
  8. 6Anna Flach, b. ____ in N.J., mentioned in the distribution of her father’s estate; m. John Thomas. Chambers lists her as the sixth child, but she must surely have been the youngest child.

2.   Andreas2 Flach/Flock ( Jr.), of Morris County, son of Andreas1 Flach and Anna Maria Schüler, was b. 20 Oct. 1736 in Germany, d. (intestate) 20 Aug. 1789, and buried 22 Aug. following in German Valley (“We committed to the earth, in the Valley, the body of our good brother, Andreas Flach”).[31] He m. by 1757, Margareta ____, b. 1726, d. 9 Dec. 1795, and buried 11 Dec. following in German Valley (“The deceased Widow Flack was buried in the Valley”).[32] He was appointed one of the administrators of his father’s estate in 1779. Letters of administration on his own estate, dated 28 Sept. 1789, were granted to Philip Flock and John Flock, and his widow Margaret renunciated.[33] His death in New Jersey disproves the contention of Chambers that this man went to Canada; this statement possibly confuses him with his son John Philip, whom the Bottings (perhaps following J.D. Flack) place there.
    Known issue (per Chambers):

  1. 7John Philip Flach/Floch/Flock, b. 25 Sept. 1757.
  2. Anna Margaretha Flach,[34] b. 3 Nov. 1761. She m. (as his first wife) 2 Oct. 1791 in the Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., New Jersey (on the same day as her brother Matthias),[35] Johannes Swartzwelder [i.e. Schwartzwälder][36] of Stillwater Tp., Sussex Co., b. 30 May 1767 at Hartwick, Sussex Co., d. before 17 June 1858 (when a division of his estate was made),[37] son of Martin Schwartzwelder,[38] of Stillwater, by the latter’s wife Rosina Barbara Gotzin. Margaretha was mother of most or all of her husband’s children. He is presumably the John Swartwelder listed in the 1830 census of Stillwater Tp., p. 242, but he has not been found in the 1850 census. The division of his estate, which consisted of 57 acres in Stillwater Tp., mainly supports the record of his children as given by Chambers, but also lists among the “tenants” of his former estate “Catherine, widow of Jacob Savercool, Jr.”[39] Known issue (per Chambers):
    1. Martin Swartzwelder or Swartswelder, of Knowlton, Warren Co., b. 5 Aug. 1793 (or 1794?), d. 10 April 1843; he m. Mary [Teel?], and had the following children baptized in the Presbyterian Church of Stillwater:
      1. Elisabeth Teel Swartswelder, b. 7 Jan. 1818, bapt. 7 June following.
      2. John Swartswelder, b. 13 Nov. 1822, bapt. 2 Feb. 1823.
    2. Andreas Swartzwelder, b. 8 May 1795. The estate of an Andrew Swartswelder was inventoried in 1865.[40] An Andrew Swartzwelder, aged 54, born in New Jersey, a farmer of lands worth $6,000, is listed in the 1850 census of Stillwater Tp. with wife Frances (aged 38, also born in New Jersey), and the following children, all born in New Jersey:[41]
      1. Elizabeth Swartzwelder, b. 1834-35.
      2. Susan Swartzwelder, b. 1836-37, perhaps the Susan “Startswelder” of Stillwater who m. 9 Nov. 1861, Michael Hendershot, of the same place.[42]
      3. Margaret Swartzwelder, b. 1838-39, perhaps the Margaret C. “Startswelder” of Stillwater who m. 29 Jan. 1863, Searing P. Bowers, of Washington Tp.[43]
      4. John Swartzwelder, b. 1839-40.
      5. Michael Swartzwelder, b. 1840-41.
      6. Caroline Swartzwelder, b. 1843-44.
      7. Elley A. Swartzwelder, b. 1847-48.
      8. Hannah F. Swartzwelder, b. 1848-49.
    3. Anna Margaret Swartzwelder, b. 8 Jan. 1797, d. 5 Dec. 1869, and buried with her husband at Stillwater. She m. 7 Jan. 1819 in Sussex Co.,[44] George Maring (the name is spelled Merring in the marriage record, but usually appears as Maring), of Stillwater, b. 16 Jan. 1796, d. 25 March 1879, son of Andrew Maring and Margaret Struble.[45] Issue (per Mering genealogy):
      1. Mary A. Maring, b. 25 Sept. 1819, d. 8 June 1845 (or possibly this is her husband’s date of death); m. 14 Jan. 1843, Aaron VanDoren.
      2. Susanna Maring, b. 18 Feb. 1822, d. 10 Dec. 1884; m. 15 Jan. 1846, Jacob Maring, of Byram, New Jersey, son of Jacob Maring and Catherine Wilgus. They had three daughters and one son.
      3. Margaret Maring, b. 6 March 1825, d. 11 Dec. 1884. She m. ____ Constable, but had no issue.
      4. Catherine Maring, b. 10 Aug. 1829, d. 6 April 1830.
      5. John S. Maring, b. 26 May 1830, d. 26 Oct. 1879, and buried at Stillwater. He m. in Nov. 1864, Hannah Grover. “They took up their residence at Tobbahanna, Pa., but subsequently removed to Harwick Township, Warren County, N.J.” Issue (for further details of whom see the Mering genealogy): John, George, Margaret (d. in infancy), Gertrude, Jacob, May, and Andrew.
      6. George Maring, b. 12 Feb. 1832, d. 30 April 1872; m. 3 Nov. 1860, Amelia Transue. Issue (for further details of whom see the Mering genealogy): Margaret, George.
    4. Matthias Swartzwelder, Jr., b. 1799; perhaps the Matthias Swartswelder of Stillwater Tp. who m. 16 Jan. 1839 in Sussex Co.,[46] Margaret Locy. This couple, as Matthias Swartzwelder, aged 37, laborer, born in New Jersey, and his wife Margaret, aged 35, and also born in New Jersey, appear in the 1850 census of Stillwater Tp. with their daughter:[47]
      1. Susan Swartzwelder, b. 1836-37 in New Jersey.
    5. Jacob Swartzwelder, b. 13 Nov. 18— (?),[48] must have d. by 1858, as he is not mentioned in the division of his father’s estate.
    6. Johannes or Johannah Swartzwelder, b. 20 March 1803, bapt. 19 May following in the Stillwater Presbyterian Church. Chambers says Johannes, while the church record says Johannah. Whoever this child was, they must have d. by 1858, as they are not mentioned in the division of their father’s estate.
    7. (perhaps) Catherine [Swartzwelder?], m. Jacob Savercool (see above). If she was indeed a daughter of John Swartzwelder, we cannot say for certain that she was of his first marriage.
  3. Andrew Flach (III), b. 23 Aug. 1763, d. 23 Sept. 1765.
  4. Maria Catharine Flach, b. 23 Oct. 1768. She was likely (as Chambers thought) the Catharine Flack who was m. 25 Feb. 1789 by Jacob Senn, minister of the Stillwater Reformed Church, Sussex Co.,[49] to John Philip Coss (called Philip in the marriage record), b. 20 Feb. 1771, son of John Peter Coss and Anna Mary Wyker.[50] It is not known whether they had issue.
  5. Matthias Flach/Flock, b. 19 Aug. 1771, d. (intestate) 23 Nov. 1793.[51] He m. 21 Oct. 1791 in the Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., New Jersey (on the same day as his sister Margaretha),[52] A[nna] Barbara Schwartzwelder [perhaps a sister of Johannes Schwartzwelder above], b. 27 Nov. 1793. It will be noted that he died only two years after his marriage; and no issue is recorded for him. He is presumably the “Matthias Flock” of Roxbury Tp. who is recorded in the 1793 list of Morris County freeholders,[53] and the “Matthius Flock, Jr.” in the list of Morris County militia, made in the same year.[54] In accordance with eighteenth-century usage he would qualify as “Jr.” because he was younger than his uncle, Matthias Flach (no. 3), whereas the latter’s own son Matthias, born in 1781, was too young to have been a land-holder in 1793.

3.   Matthias2 Flach/Flock, of Morris Tp., Morris Co., son of Andreas1 Flach and Anna Maria Schüler, was b. 6 March 1745/6 in Germany, d. (intestate) 17 Oct. 1806,[55] “in the 61st year of his age,” and was buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He m. by 1775, Mary Margaret Rarick, b. 1755, d. 15 March 1835, and buried with her husband, daughter of Hans Conrad Rarick and Anna Maria Weber.[56]
    He is presumably the “Matthias Flock” of Roxbury Tp. who is recorded in the 1793 list of Morris County freeholders.[57] The division of his estate lists his “only children” as Martin Flock, Margaret Weiss (nee Flock), John Flock, Andrew Flock, Mary Flock (minor), and Matthias Flock (who was appointed a guardian of his sister Mary).[58]
    Known issue (per Chambers):

  1. Martin Flock, fl. 1806, when he is mentioned in the division of his father’s estate.
  2. Margareta Flock, b. 10 April 1775, fl. 1806. She m. by 1806, John Vas (or Was or Voos or Weiss), of Marksboro, Hardwick Tp., Warren Co., N.J.; possibly the John Vass, aged 86, born in Pennsylvania, and evidently a widower, a farmer with $25,200 worth of land, who appears in the 1850 census of Hardwick Tp. with Isaac S. Vass (aged 32), his wife Elen [sic (aged 25), and their child John B. (aged 1 month).[59] In the History of Sussex and Warren counties, New Jersey (1881), it is stated: “John Wass, or Vass, as it is now spelled, was among the settlers [of Hardwick township] about the middle of the last century.”[60] But this may have been an older man of the same name.
  3. 8Matthias Flock, Jr., b. 18 Dec. 1781.
  4. 9John Flock, b. 2 Nov. 1784, living 1818.
  5. 10Andrew Flock, b. 22 April 1787.
  6. Anna Maria Flock, b. 21 Oct. 1796. She m. (as his second wife) Jeremiah Lanning, of Mount Herman, Hope Tp., Warren Co., N.J., b. 3 July 1794, d. 8 April 1861, “aged 66 years, 9 months, and 5 days,” and buried at Yellow Frame, Frelinghuysen Tp., Warren Co., New Jersey, widower of Elizabeth Divers (whom he married 25 Jan. 1821, with issue) and son of Edward Lanning (1764-1843), of Yellow Frame, by the latter’s wife Jane Smith (1768-1863), a sister of Silas Smith.[61] His estate was inventoried in 1861.[62] She is called “Mary” in the division of her father’s estate. William C. Armstrong specifically states that her marriage to Jeremiah Lanning was without issue.

4. Elizabeth2 Flach, daughter of Andreas1 Flach and Anna Maria Schüler, was b. 1749 (according to the old German Patrey family bible record) or 5 Nov. 1750 (according to the English Patrey family bible record, which agrees with the age at death given on her tombstone), and d. 13 June 1823, said to have been aged 72 years, 7 months, and 9 days, and buried with her husband in the Patrey Burying Ground, Chester Tp., Morris County, N.J. She m. before 1774, Wilhelm Petrie (or Patrey), of Chester Tp., Morris Co., b. 13 July 1751, d. (testate) 24 Jan. 1819, aged 67 years, 6 months, and 11 days, son of Lennert Petrie and Catharina Langin. We take our statement of this marriage from a family bible record (see the Appendix at the end of these notes), the testimony of which refutes the statement in Chambers, Early Germans of New Jersey, p. 374, that she m. “John Petrie (s. of William).”[63] The interested reader should refer to Brad Hurley’s database, which was kindly brought to our attention by its author, and from which we take most of the details given here.[64] “Wm. Petrj” and his wife served as baptismal sponsors to Wilhelm Abel, baptized 3 Sept. 1785 in Zion Lutheran Church, Oldwick, Hunterdon County, N.J. William Patrey served in the New Jersey Militia in 1793. The will of William Patrey, of Chester Tp., Morris County, dated 1814, mentions wife Elizabeth, children Catharine Patrey, John Patrey, and Mary Shankle, and grandchildren William Van Doren Patrey, John Patrey, Jacob Patrey, and Catharine. The grandchildren were all under the age of 21.[65] Issue:

  1. Catharine Patrey, b. 18 Feb. 1774, d. 5 May 1833 in Chester Tp., Morris County, and buried in the Patrey Burying Ground. The old German family bible record states that she was baptized with sponsors Daniel Landeman and Christina Flach.
  2. Anna Maria Patrey, b. 11 April 1775,[66] d. 17 Sept. 1834 at Pottersville, Hunterdon County, New Jersey. The old German family bible record states that she was baptized with sponsors Andreas Flach and his wife (apparently referring to the maternal grandparents). She m. 8 Jan. 1793 in Zion Lutheran Church, Oldwick, Hunterdon County,[67] Frederick Schenkel, of Pottersville, Somerset Co., b. 8 March 1770 in Morris County, son of Heinrich Schenkel by the latter’s third wife, Elisabeth Bercott.[68] Issue (per Chambers; for further details see Brad Hurley’s database):
    1. Anna Schenkel, b. 29 June 1796; she m. Henry Runyon.
    2. Esther Schenkel (twin), b. 25 Dec. 1798 in Chester, Morris Co.
    3. Wilhelm Schenkel (twin), b. 25 Dec. 1798.
    4. John Schenkel, b. 20 Nov. 1800.

According to Honeyman, “He died on a farm, which he owned in his later life, midway between Bound Brook and New Brunswick, and was buried at Somerville.” His will was proved 26 March 1868 in Somerset Co. His second wife (by whom he had further issue) was Susan Crater, daughter of Philip Crater and Susannah Sutton, perhaps related to the Crater family mentioned elsewhere in this page.

He was a farmer, and is enumerated in Chester Tp. in the censuses of 1830, 1840, and 1850. The 1909 Van Doorn genealogy states their residence as being “near Peapack, N.J.” Issue (for further details see Brad Hurley’s database):

5.   [Maria?] Christina2 Flach,[75] daughter of Andreas1 Flach and Anna Maria Schüler, living 1814 (when she is mentioned in her husband’s will). Christina Flach is said to have been born while her family was on its way to America. She is probably the “Mrs. Hansel, [of] Beaverdam,” buried 25 Aug. 1829, aged 76 years,” which would suggest a birthdate of ca. 1753.[76] She was godmother to her sister Elizabeth’s daughter, Catharina Petrie, born 18 February 1774 (see above). She m. 19 Sept. 1780 in the Zion Lutheran Church, Oldwick, Hunterdon County, New Jersey,[77] Andreas/Andrew Hansel,[78] b. 1747, possibly in the Duchy of Pau, Hessen-Cassel (the place from which his parents immigrated), d. 16 May 1818, aged over 70 years, and buried at Beaverdams Cemetery (Old), Thorold Tp., Lincoln (now Welland) Co.[79] son of Hans Hansel, of New Jersey, by the latter’s wife Mary ____.[80]
    Andreas Hensel, at the age of nine years, emigrated with his parents from Germany in 1756.[81] They landed in New York City and made their way overland and settled in New German Town (Oldwick), New Jersey. His father, Hans Hansel was a stock farmer and presumably Andrew followed in this tradition prior to moving to Canada. He emigrated in 1787 from New Jersey to Thorold Tp., Lincoln (now Welland) Co., Upper Canada. The travel party was made up of five Hansel siblings and their families, namely: Andrew and his wife Christina with at least one of their children, Andrew; Andrew’s (the elder) brother, Benjamin; Andrew’s brother, George with his wife and daughter, Anna; Andrew’s brother, John; and Andrew’s sister Christina and her husband, Philip Metler with their son, George. They set out from New Jersey, probably during the summer of 1787, and travelled up the Hudson River to Albany. From here they turned west and followed The Mohawk River Valley and then Indian trails to Niagara, where they crossed the border into Upper Canada. He lived for some time at Beaver Dams, Thorold Tp. before removing to St. Anns, Gainsborough Tp., Lincoln Co. About 1795 he petitioned the Crown for 300 acres of land, on grounds of “having been greatly oppressed and persecuted by the rebels during the late Rebellion in the States.”[82] He is noted as donating money to the St. George’s Parish Church, St. Catherines on 17 Feb. 1796.[83] An Andrew Hansel (but whether the present man, or his son of the same name, we cannot say) was the first Assessor of Thorold in 1799.[84] On 12 Oct. 1803, Andrew signed a petition to rid the German Church on Lot 6, Thorold Tp. of its minister, the Rev. George Joseph Wichtermann. Because of the church’s location, it is presumed Andrew had moved back to Thorold from Gainsborough by this date and was farming on lots 12 and 13.[85] He was granted Lots 12 and 13, Thorold Tp. by the Crown in 1804.[86] On 24 June 1813, at the southern edge of Andrew’s farm, the Battle of Beaverdams occured. An Andrew Hansler witnessed the 1814 will of Andrew Whitesell, of Pelham Tp., Lincoln Co.[87] In 1814, when he wrote his own will, he was living on Lots 12 and 13 of Thorold. In May 1817 “Andrew Hanselar” of Thorold Tp. was assessed £1 2s. 1d. in taxes.[88]
    Over his lifetime Andrew Hansel acquired some 1000 acres of land, as noted in his will. He bequeathed Lot 4, 4th concession, Uxbridge Tp. (200 acres) to his granddaughter (daughter of his son John) Eliza Hansel, lot N (?) in the 5th concession of Gainsborough Tp. (200 acres) to his son George Hansel, lots 16 and 17 in the 10th concession of Grantham Tp. (200 acres) to his son Jacob H. Hansel, lot 23 in the 10th concession of Burford Tp. to his sons Andrew Hansel and Jacob H. Hansel, and lots 12 and 13 of Thorold Tp. (200 acres) to his son Andrew Hansel, with the use of the last to his wife Christina for her lifetime.[89]
    Issue:

  1. John Hansel, d. v.p. 29 May 1813, having been shot at DeCew during the War of 1812, and was buried in Beaverdams Cemetery (Old), Thorold Tp., Welland County.[90] He m.

    1. Eliza Hansel, b. 6 March 1813; she is said to have m. Jacob Dale.
  2. Andrew Hansel, Jr., b. ca. 1784-85, presumably in New Jersey, d. 4 Oct. 1846 “in the 62[nd] year of his age,” and buried in Beaverdams Burying Ground, Thorold.[92] He m. 18 Oct. 1828 in Thorold Tp., by license,[93] Margaret Carroll, b. ca. Aug.-Sept. 1805, d. 23 Nov. 1844, “aged 39 years, 3 months,” and buried in Beaverdams Burying Ground, Thorold,[94] said to have been a daughter of Luke Carroll and Dorcas ____.[95] An Andrew Hansel, who attested by mark rather than by signature, was one of the men who signed a petition for clemency, dated 19 Oct. 1816, on behalf of Caleb Wilson alias Swayzy, a 17-year-old boy who had been sentenced to death for horse-theft at the Court of Oyer and Terminer of the District of Niagara.[96] In 1818, the present man served as co-executor with his brother Jacob and John Hill of his father’s estate. He inherited from his father lots 12 and 13 of Thorold Tp.,[97] and together with his brother, Jacob, lot 23 in the 10th concession of Burford Tp. He was a member of Captain Anthony Upper’s Company, 2nd Regiment, Lincoln Militia stationed at Thorold, Beaver Dams on 5 Sept. 1822.[98] An Andrew Hansel, described as a Lutheran, was one of the trustees who in 1822 purchased land near Beaverdams for a public burial ground and meeting house, which were however never built.[99] In the 1828 Census of Thorold Tp. his household is recorded as containing 2 males over age 16, 2 females over 16, and 1 female under age 16.[100] He and Margaret Carroll lived after their marriage in 1828 in Thorold Tp. Andrew appears in the 1842 Canada West Census of Thorold Tp., in which he is recorded as being a farmer, with a household consisting (excluding himself and his wife) of 1 male under 5, 1 single female aged 14-45, 2 females aged 5-14, and 1 female under 5.[101] By his will, dated 30 Sept. 1846, he bequeathed Lots 12 and 13 of Thorold Tp. to his son, Andrew Hansel.[102] Issue:
    1. Margaret Hansel, b. on her father’s farm in Thorold Tp. She m. by 1845 George Wallace, b. before 9 Aug. 1817 at Tarves, Aberdeen, Scotland, d. 6 July 1891 in Townsend Tp., Norfolk Co., Ontario.[103] A descendant, Robert Bruce Wallace, Jr., writes to us: “One of the more interesting stories my wife and I heard during one of our visits to Waterford relates to the construction of a large number of stone houses by George Wallace and Alexander Skinner, [mentioned in] the book entitled The Old Stone Houses of Townsend. Skinner and Wallace came from the same parish in Scotland, Tarves Parish, Aberdeenshire, both trained as stone masons and farmers before emigrating to Canada. Given George’s training as a stone mason, there may be some reason for his emigration about the time the second Welland Canal was under construction.” After the birth of their second child Margaret and George Wallace moved west, first to Windham Township for a brief period, then to Townsend Township where the last four children were born. They had five children (all of whom except Barbara Ann married):
      1. Alexander Wallace, b. 21 Nov. 1845 in Thorold Tp., d. 22 May 1906 at Saginaw, Saginaw Co., Michigan, aged 60 years. He m. 1 March 1876 at Port Dover, Ontario, Clarissa/Clara Shaver, b. 28 Dec. 1856 at Windham Centre, Ontario, d. 18 Jan 1924, aged 67 years, daughter of John Shaver. They left Canada about 1885 or 1886 for Saginaw, Michigan, where they are found in the 1900 census. They had issue.[104]
      2. Helen Margaret Wallace, b. 1848 in Thorold Township. She m. 29 Dec. 1869, Wilford/Wilfred Edday. Their marriage record gives his surnam as Edy, but later records give Eddy.
      3. Mary Adelaide Wallace, b. 1851 in Townsend Township; m. 20 Dec. 1876, James Augustus Boughton. Their marriage gives his surname as Broughton, but later records give Broughton, which is correct. They moved first to Novi, Michigan, and later to Traverse City, Michigan.
      4. Barbara Ann Wallace, b. 1853 in Townsend Township, d. unmarried, and is buried with her parents in the Greenwood Cemetery in Waterford.
      5. James W. Wallace, b. 1856 in Townsend Township. He m. 9 March 1876, Johanna Cunningham.
      6. Fergus Emily (“Minnie”) Wallace, b. 1863 in Townsend Township, d. 26 April 1891 at Denver, Colorado, and buried in the Baptist Cemetery, Vittoria, Ontario. She m. 22 Oct. 1889 in Townsend Tp.,[105] Alfred E. Ryerse, b. 1860-61 (aged 28 in 1889) at Port Ryerse, Woodhouse Tp., d. [in 1893–94] at Denver (where he had gone shortly before for his health), son of Francis Ryerse, of Port Ryerse, farmer, and Elizabeth Ann Potts.[106] In his will, Alfred left land in Louisiana in trust for his three-year-old son Bruce, and the sum of $1980 when the latter reached the age of 21. They had one child:
        1. Bruce Wallace Ryerse, b. 5 July 1890 at Port Ryerse. He is not traced further in the Ryerse genealogy.
    2. James [or Janus?] Hansel, b. 6 June 1829. He is said to have m. Mary Thomas.
    3. Mary C. Hansel, b. 1831 on her father’s farm. She is said to have m. David Campbell.
    4. Barbara Ann Hansel, b. 1835 on her father’s farm. She is said to have m. Nelson Pew.
    5. Andrew Hansel (III), b. 3 April 1838 on his father’s farm. He m. Elizabeth DeCew. Only known child:
      1. Andrew Decew Hansel, jeweller, b. 1858-59 (aged 22 in 1881) in Thorold Tp.; m. 18 Jan. 1881 in Thorold Tp., by Methodist rites,[107] Mary Harriet Beatty, b. 1861-62 (aged 19 in 1881), daughter of James H. Beatty and Mary Jane ____. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of the mothers, both parties were residing in Thorold Tp., and the groom was a jeweller.
  3. Jacob H. Hansel, b. ca. Oct. 1786, probably in New Jersey, d. 11 July 1853, aged 66 years, 9 months, __ days (illegible), and buried at (Old) Beaverdams Cemetery, Thorold Tp., Welland County.[108] He m. before 1815, Isabel ____, b. in Sept. 1788, d. 23 March 1839, aged 50 years, 6 months, and buried at Beaverdams Cemetery (Old). Jacob and Isabel lived before 1815 at Beaver Dams. He was co-executor with his brother, Andrew and John Hill, of his father’s estate, and from him inherited lots 16 and 17 in the 10th concession of Grantham Tp., as well as (with his brother, Andrew) lot 23 in the 10th concession of Burford Tp. In 1824 he was appointed executor of the estate of his brother, George Hansel. Issue:

  4. George Hansel, b. 27 Jan. 1789, d. (intestate) 30 July 1824 in Gainsborough Tp.,[111] and buried at St. Anns.[112] He is perhaps the Geo. Hansel who ca. 1803 was one of the supporters for the building of a German church at Beaverdams.[113] He was a farmer, having inherited from his father Lot N (?), in the 5th concession of Gainsborough Tp. He m. (as her first husband) probably before 1810, Sarah Wilkerson, b. about 1791, d. about 1843, daughter of Robert Wilkerson.[114] He and Sarah Wilkerson lived after their marriage near St. Anns, Gainsborough Tp., Lincoln Co. Letters of administration of his estate were granted to his widow, Sarah, his brother, Jacob, and his brother-in-law John Wilkerson. Sarah is likely the “widow Hansel” (no first name given) who appears in the 1828 census of Gainsborough Tp., her household (including herself) consisting of 1 female over 16, 2 males under, and 2 females under.[115] It is said that she m. secondly, William Mingle, a widower with seven children.[116] Known issue:
    1. John Hansel. “John Hansel inherited 400 acres of land, sawmill and gristmill, distilling and blacksmith shop at St. Anns.” He m. Margaret Heddon or Hidden, b. 1810, d. 1896. It is said they went to Ohio about 1835.
    2. Christina Hansel, b. 1812, d. 1873. She m. John Heddon or Hidden. The Hansler family website gives their issue as follows:

    4. Charity Hansel, b. 1816, d. 1884. She is variously said to have m. Nelson Jones or Norman James.
    5. David Hansel, of St. Anns, b. 1818-19 (aged 62 in 1881) in Ontario, d. 1886. He m. Sarah C. Zimmerman, b. 1826, d. 1877. According to the Bottings, he is found in the 1861 census of Clinton Tp., Lincoln Co., but we have not checked the reference. The widowed David Hansel, a farmer, is found with his sons Peter and Albion in the 1881 census of Clinton Tp., in which the family’ religion is stated as Canadian Methodist.[117] Some Hansler family notes made in 1933 state:
      This inscription was on the marble stone, since broken and buried beneath the sod on the remains of David and Sarah Hansel who were moved from Mingle Hill and St. Anns in 1933. On November 1933, Frank and Albion Hansel had the remains of their parents David and Sarah Hansel along with the two monuments moved from the deserted neglected Mingle Hill Churchyard to St. Anns beside the graves of [David’s parents] George and Sarah Hansel, and the dates of the lives of the latter placed on the reverse side of the stones of David and Sarah Hansel. The original headstones of George Hansel is placed in the grave over the remains of David and Sarah Hansel. It was broken in two pieces.[118]

6. Anna2 Flach, who was still alive in 1804, is said by Chambers to have been a daughter of Andreas1 Flach, but note the length of the generations between her alleged mother, born ca. 1717, and her own youngest child, b. 1804, a space of some 87 years. It would be desireable to have better proof of her parentage. She m. before 1794, John Thomas, b. in April 1767, d. 17 April 1820, aged 53 years, 12 days, and his estate inventoried that year,[123] son of Matthias Thomas (of Flocktown), by his first wife, Anna Scharfenstein.[124] The name of a John Thomas of Roxbury Tp. appears in the 1793 list of Morris County militia.[125] Known issue:

(testate) 14 March 1883,[126] son of Samuel Dickerson and Hannah Leek,[127] and they are buried with their sons William and Talmadge in Pleasant Hill Cemetery. His surname is erroneously given as “Dickson” in the 1880 census of Washington Tp., Morris Co., which lists in his household a Tunis Dilley, aged 22, no relationship stated (but probably Elisabeth’s grandnephew; see below).[128]
    1. William Dickerson, b. 8 July 1826, d. 2 March 1827.
    2. Talmadge Dickerson [male], b. 8 Oct 1828, d. 8 March 1848.
    3. Hannah Dickerson, b. 10 Dec. 1830, d. 23 Nov. 1911, buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery as “Hannah D., wife of Peter D. Johnson and daughter of Abraham T. & Elizabeth Dickerson,” but it is unclear whether her husband is buried with her. She was still living unmarried with her father in 1880.
    4. Elizabeth Dickerson, b. 1 Feb 1836, d. 3 Feb. 1915; she buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery as “Elizabeth, wife of Abraham Davis and daughter of Abraham T. & Elizabeth Dickerson,” but it is unclear whether her husband is buried with her.

Morris Sharp (III),[129] son of Morris Sharpenstone (alias Sharp), Jr., of Upper German Valley, by the latter’s wife Mary Welsh, and had 9 children. Her husband is called a minor in the division of his father’s estate in “March Term” 1824.[130]
  3. Matthias Thomas, b. 29 Nov. 1776; he m. Charity Reinhart and had 9 children.
  4. Ann Thomas, b. 15 March 1798, d. unmarried.
  5. Christianna Thomas, b. 21 March 1800, d. 10 Feb. 1875, aged 74 years, 10 months, and 19 days. She m. 14 Feb. 1826 at German Valley,[131] Tunis Dilley, of Washington Tp., Morris Co., b. 1805, d. (intestate) 25 March 1868,[132] aged 63 years, 2 months, and they are buried with their children Elizabeth and John in Pleasant Hill Cemetery. He is said to appear in the 1830 census of Readington Tp., Hunterdon Co., and in the 1850 census of Washington Tp., Morris Co., but we have not personally checked these statements. The division of his estate, dated 3 April 1868, states that his widow Christine, aged 69 years and born 21 March 1800, “relinquished her dower rights,” and mentions children Anna (wife of Reuben Larrison), Matthias (aged 36 years), Abram, Jehiel, and David.[133] In addition to these, they were parents of John and Elizabeth, both of whom d. v.p. and v.m. and are buried with them.
        A probable grandson of this couple was Tunis Dilley, b. 7 April 1858, d. 9 March 1909, also buried in the same cemetery, with his wife Emma V. Kellehan, b. 11 Nov. 1864, d. ____. He is surely the Tunis Dilley, aged 22 years, an unmarried farm laborer, found in the household of Christianna (Thomas) Dilley’s brother-in-law, Abraham Dickerson, in 1880.
        Known issue:
    1. Anna Dilley, b. 1827, d. 1885; she is buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery with her husband, Reuben S. Larison, 1814-1901, and their children: John D. 1850-1851; James G. 1852-1871; Caroline 1853-1883; Keturah, 1857-1879; Reuben C., 1860-1883; Tunis S., 1862-1889; David D., 1866-1896; Mary S. 1868-1886; and Hannah E. 1871-1873.

  6. John Thomas, Jr., b. 14 Oct. 1802; he m. Magdalena Bess, and had 10 children.
  7. Barbara Thomas, b. 14 July 1804, d. young.

7. John Philip3 Flach/Floch/Flock, son of Andrew2 Flach and Margareta ____, of Morris Co., New Jersey, was b. (on or about) 25 Sept. 1757, and d. 7 Nov. 1828, “aged 71 years, 7 months, 1 week, and 6 days,” and buried with his second wife in St. Peter Cemetery or Barton Graveyard (now Barton Union Cemetery), Mohawk Road, Barton Township, in the Gore District, Upper Canada (now Wentworth County, Ontario), his tombstone calling him “Philip Floch, husband of Anne Marey Floch.”[134] He is probably the “John Flock” of Roxbury Tp. who is recorded in the 1793 list of Morris County freeholders,[135] and in the list of Morris County militia, made in the same year.[136] He m. (1) 27 Sept. 1791 in the Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., New Jersey,[137] Catharina Swartzwelder [i.e. Schwartzwälder], b. 16 Jan. 1771 at Hardwick, Sussex Co., d. 9 Nov. 1793, and buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley, daughter of Martin Swartzwelder (above-named), who mentions his “daughter Catherine, deceased” and her son Andrew Flack, in his 1795 will.[138] He m. (2) 12 Feb. 1795, Anna Aimes, b. about June 1772, d. 18 March 1820, “aged XLVII years and IX months,” and buried with her husband, her tombstone calling her “Anne Mary, wife of Philip Floch.” He is presumably the “Philip Flock” of Roxbury Tp. who is recorded in the 1793 list of Morris County freeholders,[139] and in the list of Morris County militia, made in the same year.[140] According to The Deans of Gainsborough Township, p. 27, John Philip Flack came to Canada in 1796; but although his dates and those of his second wife were correctly given, no mention was made of their place of burial. But now that this has been established, it may be stated that they settled in the Gore District, some time after the birth in New Jersey of their daughter Susannah in 1805. John Philip Floch and his wife were ancestral to most, and probably all, of the Floch or Flock family of Barton and Binbrook townships. Although no definitive proof has been found except in the case of his son Philip, it is highly likely, on onomastic and other grounds, that John Philip Flack was father of most or all of the following children (order inferential):

(by first wife:)

  1. 11Andrew Flock, said to have been b. 25 Sept. 1792.[141]

(by second wife:)

  1. 12John Flock, said to have been b. in Dec. 1795,[142] and certainly born in New Jersey.
  2. Mary Flock, b. say 1797. As “Mary Flaugh, of Barton Tp., Wentworth Co., spinster,” she had bond dated 27 Jan. 1823 to marry Michael Hesse, yeoman, of Barton Tp., the bondsman being Matthew Crooks, Esq., of Ancaster, merchant.[143] In 1833 “Michael Hess” was one of the witnesses at the marriage her probably sister, Susannah Flock, below. We have not found this couple in the 1881 census.
  3. 13Philip Flock, b. say 1802. The evidence for his placement in this family is given in his own account.
  4. 13bSusannah (“Anna”) Flock, b. 16 Dec 1805 in New Jersey.
  5. Elizabeth Flock, b. say 1807, probably identical with the Elizabeth McKee d. Mar 27, 18__, aged _6 years, 3 months, and 11 days, widow of Peter McKee, who is buried in Barton Union Cemetery (where there is apparently no surviving tombstone for her husband). As “Elizabeth Flock, of Barton Tp., spinster,” she had bond dated 14 June 1830 to marry Peter McKee, of “Glandford [recte Glanford], yeoman,” the bondsmen being John Flock, of Barton Tp., yeoman, and Edmund Burton, of Ancaster Tp., gentleman.[144] Possibly her husband was a kinsman of the husband of Susannah Flock, above.
  6. Margaret Flock, b. say 1809. As “Margaret Flaugh, of Barton Tp., spinster,” who had bond dated 12 June 1832 to marry Launiston [recete Lauriston] Cook, of Mount Pleasant [now part of Brantford on the south side of the Grand River], yeoman, the bondsmen being Plumer Burley, “of the Indian Lands, Wentworth Co.,” blacksmith, and George Higson, of Burford, yeoman.[145] They were married by licence 14 June 1832 as “Lauriston [sic] Cook, of the Township of Haldimand, County of Wentworth,” and “Margaret Flaugh, of the Township of Barton, same county, District of Gore, Upper Canada,” by the Rev. John Miller, with witnesses John Flock and George Higson.[146] We have not found this couple in the 1881 census.
  7. Christiana Flock, b. say 1811. As “Christiana Flaugh, of Binbrook Tp., spinster,” she had bond dated 6 Jan. 1834 to marry James McKee, of Glanford, yeoman, the bondsman being Matthew Crooks, Esq., of Ancaster Tp.[147] Possibly her husband was a kinsman of the husbands of Susannah Flock and Elizabeth Flock, above. We suspect her to be the “Justina” Flock who is said to have m. James McKee, b. in Scotland, and had a child, Martin Curry McKee, b. 2 Feb. 1840 (place unknown). We have not found this couple in the 1881 census. “Martin McKee moved to Van Buren Co, MI, before 1870. Relatives in Hamilton from whom letters were received in the early 1900s were Daisy Taylor and Mary Yeager. The letters refer to the Springer heirs, one of those land-fraud cases soliciting money, trying to prove descent from somebody that supposedly was cheated out of an inheritance, so it appears that “Justina” may have been a descendant of the Loyalist Springer family.”[148] The only child of this couple we can name with certainty is:
    1. Margaret Elizabeth McKee, b. 1845-46 (aged 20 in 1866) in Glanford Township. She m. 16 April 1866 in Wentworth Co.,[149] Jonathan Obadiah Taylor, b. 1842-43 (aged 23 in 1866) in Barton Township, son of Joseph, of Barton Tp., by the latter’s wife Elizabeth A. ____.[150] At the time of her marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of the mothers (the bride’s parents being named as James and Christina McKee), the bride was of Windham Township and the groom of Barton Township.

8.   Matthias3 Flock, Jr., son of Matthias2 Flach/Flock and Mary Margaret Rarick, was b. 18 Dec. 1781, d. (intestate) 21 March 1821, “aged 39 years 3 months, 13 days,” and was buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He m. (as her first husband) 23 Oct. 1808 in Sussex Co.,[151] Effie Weaver, daughter of Christopher Weaver. She m. secondly, John Dilly. His estate was inventoried in 1821.[152] The division, dated “July Term” 1828, mentions that his widow Effy was now the wife of John Dilly; she was to receive one third of the estate as dower. The “only other heirs” were stated to be Elizabeth Flock, wife of Jacob Bird; and two minor sons, John and William.[153]
    Known issue (per Chambers):

  1. Elisabeth Flock, b. 3 May 1811. She m. Jacob Bird, who according to Chambers came to Schooley’s Mountain from Maryland. Issue:[154]
    1. Mary Bird, m. Joseph H. Parker.
    2. Effie Bird, died young.
    3. John Bird, m. (1) Sarah Wack, daughter of Jacob Wack; m. (2) Ann (Swartz) Earn, widow of ____ Earn and daughter of Jacob Swartz. Issue, all by first wife:
      1. Jacob Bird, m. Sarah A. Karn.
      2. Jennie Bird, unmarried in 1895.
      3. Kate Bird, unmarried in 1895.
    4. Sarah Bird, m. William Wiley, son of John Wiley.
    5. Julia Ann Bird, m. Robert T.S. Durham.
    6. William Flock Bird, m. Frances Hoffman.
  2. John Flock, who m. 8 Oct. 1835 in Sussex Co.,[155] Susannah Divers. In 1895 they were living in Warren Co., without children.
  3. 14William Flack, b. 24 April 1820.

9.   John3 Flack/Flock, son of Matthias2 Flach/Flock and Mary Margaret Rarick, was b. 2 Nov. 1784, and is said to have d. in 1853 in Coshocton Co., Ohio.[156] He m. before March 1824, Maria Sharp, b. 2 Nov. 1784 in German Valley, also living 1818, but presumably d. by 1850 (when her husband is listed without her in the census), daughter of Morris Sharpenstone (alias Sharp), aforesaid, by the latter’s wife Mary Welsh.[157] He was apparently of Trenton, Mercer Co., N.J., at the birth of his son Morris in 1809. His wife is called “Mary Flock” in the division of her father’s estate in “March Term” 1824.[158] This man is somewhat vaguely said by Chambers to have “removed to Ohio or Canada,” and Ohio is surely the right place, as he is found in the household of his son Morris in the 1850 census of Oxford Tp., Cochocton Co., Ohio, which gives his occupation as a farmer (see below). In addition, the record of a descendant, Sheila Melba (Crowder) Bauer, which seems to be well informed, gives his death as occuring there.[159] Mainly according to Bauer, his issue (all born in New Jersey) was as follows:[160]

  1. Mary Catherine Flock, b. 1807 (?),[161] d. by 1870. She m. 29 April 1830 in Tuscarawas Co., Jacob Tufford, son of John Tufford and Ann ____. Known issue (birthdates probably approximate):

    (by second wife:)
    1. David Flock.
    2. Emily Flock, b. 24 June 1847, d. 13 April 1957 in Independence Tp., Jasper Co., Iowa.
    (by third wife:)
    1. Catherine Flock; m. Crawford Oller.
    2. Tabitha Flock; m. Fancis Rose.
    3. Martha Flock, b. 1851.
  8. Dorothy Flock, b. say 1820. She m. 20 Aug. 1838 in Tuscarawas Co., Ohio, Joseph Wires.

10.   Andrew3 Flock, of Washington Tp., Morris Co., son of Matthias2 Flach/Flock and Mary Margaret Rarick, was b. 22 April 1787, and d. (testate) 2 or 20 May 1844,[162] and buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He m. (1) 16 April 1812,[163] Sarah Lane, who is probably the “Sarah, wife of Andrew Flock” who d. 5 Sept. 1834, aged 49 years, and buried in the Old Stone Union Church Cemetery, Long Valley. He m. (2) 6 April 1837 in the Presbyterian Church, Mt. Olive, Roxbury Tp.,[164] Mrs. Sarah (Swayze) Salmon, b. 1802-03, d. 9 March 1861, widow of Samuel S. Salmon referred to below,[165] and buried in Mt. Olive Presbyterian Cemetery as “Sarah, widow (with issue) of Samuel S. Salmon,” having d. 9 March 1861, aged 58 years.[166] The record of his second marriage calls him of Washington Tp., and his wife of Roxbury Tp. He is probably the Andrew Flock who served as a J.P. in Morris Co. in 1831 and 1842.[167].
    Issue (all by first wife):

  1. 17Matthias Flock, b. 10 Jan. 1813.
  2. (probably) John Flock, not listed by Chambers, b. say 1815, who in the 1880 census is listed as an “uncle, retired merchant” in the household of Margaret A. (Flock) Read, daughter of Matthias above.[168] His age is there given as 68 years, suggesting a birthdate of 1811-12, which would preceed his parents’ marriage if he really belongs here.
  3. Eleanor Flock, b. 1819, d. (testate) 21 Jan. 1859 near Mount Olive, and buried with her husband in Mount Olive Cemetery (per Salmon genealogy). She m. well before 1850, Daniel L. Salmon, of Roxbury Tp., b. in July 1815, d. 4 Oct. 1851, son of Stephen Salmon and Sarah Lanon.[169] Issue:

(2) ________. Left an orphan at the age of 8, he was brought up by a kinsman, Aaron Howell Salmon. He became a veterinary surgeon, earning the first D.V.M. degree awarded in the United States, and spent his career studying animal diseases for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. An assistant working under him discovered the bacterial genus salmonella, which was named in honor of D.E. Salmon.
  4. Margaret Ann Flock, b. 1 Dec. 1822, d. 1 March 1875, and buried with her husband in Mount Olive Cemetery (per Salmon genealogy). She m. (as his first wife) 27 Jan. 1845 in the Presbyterian Church, Mt. Olive, Roxbury Tp.,[170] Philip Grandin Stephens, of Washington Tp., b. 27 Jan. 1822 at Mount Olive, d. 29 May 1885, son of William Stephens and Hannah Grandin.

11. Andrew4 Flock, of Barton Tp., Upper Canada, son of John Philip3 Flock, of Barton, by the latter’s first wife, Catharina Swartzwelder, is plausibly said to have been b. 25 Sept. 1792,[172] and d. (testate) 13 April 1861 “in the sixty-eighth year of his age” (i.e. aged 67), being buried in St. Peter’s churchyard, Bartonville. As “Andrew Flaugh, of Barton Tp., yeoman,” he had bond dated 8 June 1829 to marry Esther Cook, spinster, of Mount Pleasant [now part of Brantford], the bondsmen being “John Flock the younger,” of Barton Tp., yeoman, and Alexander Robertson, of Ancaster Tp., merchant.[173] The marriage was celebrated 10 June following. Esther Cook is said to have been b. in 1799-1800 in New York State (although her age is given as only 50 years in the 1852 census), and d. 4 Sept. 1878, aged 78 years, of dysentary, the informant being Daniel Flock, of Barton (her son); the record gives her religion as Church of England and her status as “housewife,” suggesting that her husband was then still alive.[174] She was a daughter of Daniel Cook and Phoebe ____. Andrew Flock was granted land in the 4th concession of Barton Tp. on 24 April 1855.[175] As Andrew Floch,born in the United States, he was enumerated in Wentworth Co. in the 1852 census, in which he is clled a farmer.[176] By his will, dated 1 Feb. 1858, he left lot 3 and part of lot 4 in the 4th concession to his son Daniel, and $2000 to his daughter Catherine.[177] Issue:

  1. 18Daniel Flock, b. probably in 1833 in Ontario.
  2. Catherine Flock, b. probably in 1834 (aged 18 in 1852, 23 in 1858) in Barton Tp., who was living unmarried with her parents in 1852. As Catherine Flaugh she m. 20 Oct. 1858 at Bartonville,[178] James Gage Davis, b. 1820-21 (aged 37 in 1858) in Saltfleet Tp., son of John and Jane Davis. At the time of their marriage she was of Barton Tp. and he of Hamilton Tp.; the marriage record calls her a daughter of Andrew and E____ Flaugh, and her husband a son of John and Jane Davis. We have not found this couple in the 1881 census. They were doubtless the parents of:
    1. Andrew Flock Davis, b. about 19 July 1861 in Hamilton Tp., d. 11 Aug. 1874, aged 13 years, 22 days, of heart disease, the record giving his religion as Episcopalian.[179]

12. John4 Flock, of Binbrook Tp., farmer, son of John Philip3 Flock, of Barton, by the latter’s second wife, Anna Aimes, is plausibly said to have been b. in Dec. 1795,[180] and was certainly born in New Jersey; he d. 11 June 1882 in Binbrook Tp., aged 86 years, “of old age,” his death reocrd giving his name as John Floch, his birthplace as New Jersey, and his religion as Methodist, the informant being George Floch, of Binbrook (his son).[181] As John Flock he had licence dated 26 July 1834 to marry Elizabeth Weaver, spinster, of Binbrook Tp., the bondsmen being Andrew Flock, of Barton, and David Weaver, of Binbrook, both farmers.[182] They were subsequently married 29 July 1834, with witnesses Andrew Sweazey and Esther Flock [wife of Andrew Flock above?].[183] She was b. ca. 1810-11 (aged 70 in 1881) in the U.S., and d. 19 Feb 1886, “in the 74th year of her age” (per her tombstone, in agreement with the statement in her death record that she was aged 73 years),[184] being buried in Binbrook United Church Cemetery, her tombstone giving her name as Elizabeth Floch.[185] John Flock and his wife are enumerated in the 1881 census of Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co., in which he is called a farmer.[186] Her death record calls her a Methodist; the informant was John A. Flock (her son). Known issue:

  1. 19Francis Flock, b. 5 or 7 Aug. 1835 in Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co.
  2. Andrew J. Floch, b. about 23 Oct. 1836, d. 4 Nov. 1868, aged 32 years and 11 days, and buried in Binbrook United Church Cemetery, his tombstone calling him a son of John and Elizabeth Floch
  3. Eleanor or Ellen Flock, b. 1838 (per tombstone) or 12 June 1839 in Binbrook Tp, Wentworth Co., Ontario (according to her death record), d. 5 Sept. 1912 in Binbrook Tp., aged 74 years, of chronic bronchitis,[187] and buried in Binbrook United Church Cemetery, her tombstone calling her Ellen Floch, widow of William Martin.[188] Her death record specifically names her as a daughter of John Flock and Elizabeth Weaver (although erroneously giving her father’s birthplace as Pennsylvania); the informant was Wm. Martin of Binbrook, presumably her husband (who survived her). She (as Ellen Floch) m. 15 Jan. 1862 in Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co.[189], William Martin, b. 1839-40, d. 26 June 1920, “in his 81st year” (i.e. aged 80 years) and is buried with his wife, his tombstone calling him husband of Ellen Floch. There are many other Martins buried in the same cemetery, but it is not clear whether any of them are their descendants. They are enumerated in Binbrook Tp. in the 1881 census, in which William is called a farmer.[190] Known issue (all born in Ontario):
    1. Levera Martin, b. probably in 1863 (aged 17 in 1881, 19 in 1882) in Binbrook Tp.

As George Floch of Binbrook he reported the death of his father in 1882. As George Flack, aged 44, farmer, Methodist, unmarried, he appears in the 1891 census of Binbrook Tp.[197] In 1901 he was still unmarried, and living by himself in Binbrook Tp., the census calling him George M.

In the record of her death, in which she is called Ellen Green, widow, and her religion given as Episcopalian, the informant is recorded as Paul Flock (her son). Known issue:[205]

As Elizabeth (Flock) McKee she m. (2) 23 July 1874 at Waterford, Townsend Township, Norfolk County,[207] Joseph Petitt, d. by 1883. The only possible match for this couple we have found in the 1881 census is a Joseph Pettit, aged 58, born in Ontario, with wife Elizabeth, aged 55 (which if our subject would be a drastic overstatement), also born in Ontario; he had children Charles, aged 20, and Joanna, aged 17, who if this is the right man must have been by a previous marriage.[208] As Elizabeth Petit she m.

At the time of their marriage, the record of which gives the names of both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of the mothers, the groom, a labourer, was of Glanford Tp., and the bride (whose age is shamelessly understated as 37 years although she could not possibly have been under 44 years of age at the time) was of Townsend Tp.; the witnesses were William Neale and Thomas French, both of Glanford.

Hope, Glanford Tp., Wentworth Co.[210] Her death record distinctly states her place of New Jersey (which is corroborated in part by the statement of the 1881 census that she was born in the U.S.), and calls her a housewife although she was in fact a widow; the death was reported by Peter Jas. McKee, of Glanford, farmer (her son).[211] As “Susannah Flock, of Barton Tp., spinster,” she had bond dated 6 April 1833 to marry Samuel McKee, of “Glandford [recte Glanford], yeoman,” the bondsmen being James McKee, of Glandford, gentleman, and Edmund Burton, of Ancaster Tp., gentleman.[212] They were m. by license 8 April 1833, with witnesses John Flock and Michael Hess [husband of the bride’s sister Mary, above].[213] Samuel McKee was b. 20 Aug. 1811, and d. 6 March 1866. There are a number of other McKees buried with them, but no relationship is stated on their tombstones. The widow Susannah McKee, aged 75 years, born in the U.S., is enumerated in the household of her son Philip in the 1881 census of Glanford Tp., Wentworth Co.

17.   Matthias4 Flock, son of Andrew3 Flack/Flock and Sarah Lane, was b. 10 Jan. 1813, and d. 15 Feb. 1852.[248] As Matthias Floch he m. (1) 13 Nov. 1834 in Sussex Co.,[249] Christina Divers, b. 2 Jan. 1816, d. 6 Sept. 1849. He m. (2) in 1849 or 1850, Sarah Corson. Matthew and his family were members of the Succasunna Presbyterian Church, and Matthias and his first wife are buried in the churchyard with four of their children.[250]
    Known issue, probably all but the last by first wife (per Chambers):

  1. Andrew L. Flock, d. 1883, and mentioned on his parents’ tombstone in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard (although it seems unlikely he is actually buried there). According to Chambers he m. by 1859, Margaret Almeda Luse (not Lewis), living 1865, daughter of William Luse, of Marksboro, New Jersey, by the latter’s wife Catherine Gibbs.[251] She is mentioned as “Almeda Flock, wife of Andrew Flock” in the 1865 will of her paternal grandfather, David Luse.[252] Andrew and his wife lived at Pleasant Valley, Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania. He is presumably therefore the Andrew Flock, aged 40 years, “weigh master,” who is enumerated with wife Emma A. and family in the 1880 census of Pleasant Valley.[253] If so, then his children (all born in New Jersey) were:
    1. Luella (?) S. Flock (called O’Ella [!] in the 1880 census), b. ca. 1859.
    2. Kate A. Flock, b. ca. 1861.
    3. Henry D. Flock, b. ca. 1864.
    4. Frank A. Flock, b. ca. 1866.
  2. John Flock, d. 1924, and buried in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard.
  3. Henry C. Flock, d. (unmarried) 1855, and buried in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard.
  4. Jacob Divers Flack (who seems to have intentionally adopted this spelling of the surname in adulthood), d. 1935, and buried in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard. He m. Kate Drake, daughter of William Drake.[254] He was the author of the Flack genealogy cited above.
  5. Margaret Ann Flock, b. 13 Dec. 1841, d. 10 May 1921, and buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery, Jacksonburg, Blairstown Tp., Warren Co., N.J. (not in Succasunna Presbyterian churchyard, despite the mention of her on her parents’s tombstone there). She m. before 1860, Isaac Fonger Read, of Blairstown, b. 1 Nov. 1835 in Warren County, d. 2 June 1922 in Blairstown Tp., son of Isaac Read III and Catherine Matthews, and grandson of John Read and Elizabeth Ogden (paternally) and of John Matthews and Elizabeth Fonger (maternally).[255] They are enumerated at Jacksonburg in the 1880 census, their household at that time including her “uncle” John Flock.[256] According to Esther Doyle Read, “When her father died Margaret was a minor. When she married Isaac Read, was still legally considered a minor because she was 19. Isaac was appointed her legal guardian by the Orphans Court (Warren County New Jersey Surrogate Court Records, Letters of Administration and Guardianship Liber 2, folio 180). She is buried with Isaac and several of their children in Cedar Ridge Cemetery in Jacksonburg. Isaac Read’s plot is one of the largest plots in the cemetery…. Isaac owned and operated Read’s Distillery in Jacksonburg. The firm was well known for its Apple Jack. When Isaac wrote his will, he left control of the entire business in Margaret’s hands after his death. She died before he did, but Isaac never changed his will. This indicates to me that he had great faith in her business abilities and that she had probably been running the business with him. The Distillery closed down in 1919 when prohibition went into effect in this country. The family evidently continued to make apple cider in the old facility. The building still stands on Route 94 in Jacksonburg…. Two of Margaret and Isaac’s granddaughters (who are extremely elderly) still live in Margaret and Isaac’s house in Jacksonburg. Many of their descendants currently live in the area.” For more information concerning her descendants visit her web site: Read Family connections at http://www.charm.net/~edrtjd/readgen/230fam.htm, from which we take a few brief details of their children:
    1. Daughter (unnamed), d. 9 March 1860, and buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    2. John A. Read, b. July 1861, d. 1940. He m. May Titman, and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    3. Addie C. Read, b. 31 Aug. 1862, d. 27 Nov. 1864, aged 2 years, 2 months, and 27 days, and buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    4. Susan I. Read, b. ca. 1865, d. ____ m. Frank T. Austin.
    5. Kate Alvesta Read, b. ca. 1867, d. ____ m. Frank L. Jones.

    7. Andrew O. Read, b. ca. 1870, d. ____.
    8. Harry H. Read, b. 1873, d. 1934. He m. J.A. Bird, and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    9. Emma A. Read, b. 1875, d. 1972. She married Elmer William Breed, and they are buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Brooklyn Township, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. Many of Emma’s Raub, Lake, Vough, and Kinney cousins also settled in Susquehanna County. Emma was also one of the three editors of The Flocks (1938).
    10. Clark Edward Read, b. 1879, d. 1960. He m. Elizabeth Hughes, and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    11. Boyd S. Read, b. Dec. 1881, d. 1972. He m. Amelia N. ____, and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
    12. William Flock Read, b. Dec. 1884. He married Levina VanKirk, another of the three editors of The Flocks (1938), and they are buried in Cedar Ridge Cemetery.
  6. Sylvester G. Flock, said to have been b. 6 Sept. 1851, living 1880. He m. Louisa Lichtenfels (or Lichtenfeltz), b. ca. 1852 in Baden, Germany.[257] He and his family, including a “brother-in-law” Robert Lichtenfeltz, are found in the 1880 census of Newark, Essex Co., N.J., in which he is called an engraver.[258] Chambers, writing in 1895, calls him a “a jeweller in New York City.” Known issue:
    1. Frederick Flock, b. ca. 1874 at Flanders, N.J.
    2. Sylvester Flock, Jr., b. ca. 1876 at Flanders, N.J.

18. Daniel5 Flock, of Barton Tp., Wentworth Co., farmer, son of Andrew Flock, of Barton Tp., by the latter’s wife Esther Cook, was b. probably about 1833 (aged 20 year in 1852, 33 years in 1866, and 48 years in early 1881) in Ontario, d. 1 March 1891 in Barton Tp., allegedly aged 59 years, 3 months, and 8 or 18 days, and buried in Hamilton City Cemetery, his death record giving his occupation as farmer and his religion as Church of England.[259] He was still living unmarried with his parents in 1852. He m. 21 Feb. 1866 in St. Peter’s church, Bartonville,[260] Isabella Ann Rennie, b. 1 Oct. 1845 at Toronto (per her death record), d. 3 July 1924, aged 81 years, of carcinoma of the liver, and buried with her husband, daughter of Alexander Rennie (born at Aberdeen), and Catherine Graham (born in the “North of Ireland”).[261] At the time of their marriage both were of Barton Tp.; the record names his parents as Andrew and Esther Flock, but names only her father. As Daniel Flock, of Barton, he reported his mother’s death in 1878. As Daniel “Flack” he is enumerated with his wife and two daughters in the 1881 census of Barton Tp., Wentworth Co., Ontario, in which he is called a farmer, of German origin, and his family’s religion is given as Church of England; his household included a servant woman. Her name and age are therein inaccurately reported as “Anne J. Flack,” aged 40 years.[262] Her true name, agreeing with that given in her daughters’ marriage records and with the birth record of her daughter Esther, appears in the 1901, in which she is enumerated as the widow Isabella A. Flock, with daughter Esther.[263] The informant of Daniel Flock’s death was a Wm. Flock, of Barton, perhaps a son or brother whom we have failed to identify. At the time of his wife’s death she was of King Street, Bartonville; the informant was Cameron Gage, of Bartonville, “son-in-law.” Known issue:

  1. Louise Graham Flock, b. 18 June 1869 in Barton Tp., Wentworth Co., d. there 7 Aug. 1952. She m. 17 Oct. 1893 in the Church of the Ascension, Hamilton, Ontario,[264] Cameron Calvin Gage, b. 8 Dec. 1863 at Bartonville, d. there 8 Feb. 1938, son of Peter Gage and Susan Waller. Their marriage record calls her of Bartonville, daughter of Daniel Flock and Isabella ____, and him a gardener, b. at and resident in Bartonville; the witnesses were Adam Condy and Esther Flock [wife of Andrew?], both of Bartonville. As Cameron Gage, of Bartonville, “son-in-law,” her served as the informant of the death of his mother-in-law in 1924. Issue:[265]
    1. Florence Louisa Gage, b. 10 Jan. 1895 at Bartonville, d. there 26 Jan. 26 1906, aged 11 years.
    2. George Cameron Gage, b. 31 Oct. 1896 at Hamilton, d. there in 1974 of a stroke, and buried in Hamilton Woodlawn Cemetery. He m. ____ at Hamilton, Flornce Neild, b. 31 Oct. 1896 in co. Cork, Ireland, d. in 1981 at Hamilton, also of a stroke, and buried with her husband, daughter of ____ Neild and Elizabeth Smith. Only child:
      1. Cameron Harold Gage, b. 2 June 1924 at Hamilton, d. there 27 July 1991, and buried in Hamilton Woodlawn Cemetery. He m. 20 Aug. 1949 in the Church of Ascension, Hamilton, Jeane Isobel Stevens, b. 9 Feb. 1926 at Toronto, Ontario. Issue:
        1. George Stephen Gage, b. 1951 at Hamilton.
        2. Brian Douglas Cameron Gage, b. 1953 at Hamilton, who contributed the present account of the Gage family.
        3. Margaret Elizabeth Gage, b. 1956.
    3. Edith Irene Gage, b. 15 July 1903 at Bartonville, d. in 1974 at Guelph, and buried at Hamilton.
    4. Maurice Roy Gage, b. 5 June 1907, d. 18 June 1907 at Bartonville, aged 13 days, and buried in Hamilton Cemetery.
    5. Harold Howitt Gage, b. 9 April 1912, d. 13 Sept. 1938 in an automobile accident. At the time of his death he was engaged to wed Hope Richardson.
  2. Esther Alexandria Flock, b. 15 Aug. 1873 in Barton Tp.,[266] d. 5 May 1923 at Hamilton, aged nearly 49 years, during or as a result of an operation on her throat, and buried in Hamilton City Cemetery.[267] Her age was reported as 8 years in early 1881 and as 34 years on her marriage in late 1908, and therefore the birthdate of 23 Aug. 1875 reported for her in the 1901 census is erroneous. She m. 2 Dec. 1908 at St. Mary’s Church, Bartonville,[268] William Joseph (or Joseph William) Syer, b. 29 Aug. 1877, d. 3 April 1953, son of William Syer, gardener, and Lucy Ellen Waller. Their marriage record calls her Ester [sic] Alexandria Flock, of Bartonville, daughter of Daniel Flock, farmer, and Isabella Ann Rennie, and her husband a gardener, of Bartonville; the witnesses were Morris E. Syer and Cameron Gage, both of Bartonville. Her husband is called J.W. Syer of Bartonville in her death record.

19. Francis5 Flock, of Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co., farmer, son of John4 Flock, of Binbrook Tp., by the latter’s wife Elizabeth Weaver, was b. 5 or 7 Aug. 1835 in Binbrook Tp.,[269] d. 8 April 1911 at Burlington Avenue, Burlington, of cerebral hemorrhage, aged over 75 years.[270] In his death record, in which his occupation is given merely as “retired,” his parents are named as John Flock and Elizabeth Weaver; the informant was G.M. Flock, of Burlington. He m. (1) 28 Dec. 1859 in Wentworth Co.,[271] Sarah Lotteridge, b. about 31 Dec. 1837 in Saltfleet Tp., d. 1 July 1868, aged 31 years, 6 months, and 1 day, and buried in Binbrook United Church Cemetery, her tombstone calling her the widow of Francis Flock.[272] She was a daughter of Robert and Maria (____) Lotteridge. According to their marriage record, both parties were resident in Binbrook Tp. at the time; the same source names both of their parents, identifying him as the son of John and Sarah (____) Flock, whom we cannot place. He m. (2) by 1881, and probably by 1871,[273] Jane Brown, b. 21 Oct. 1843 in Scotland, of Scottish origin, d. 13 Jan. 1929 at no. 8 Burlington Avenue, Burlington, of bronchiopneumonia, aged 85 years, 3 months, and buried two days later in Greenwood Cemetery,[274] daughter of John Brown and Margaret Barron, the informant of her death being her son, Murray Flock.
    Francis Flock is enumerated in the 1881 census of Binbrook Tp., Wentworth Co., in which he is called a farmer, his ethnic origin is given as German, and his religion as Episcopal Methodist but that of the rest of his family as Canadian Presbyterian.[275] He was enumerated again in 1891.[276] They were still in the township in 1901.[277]
    There are several notable points about this family: they had three sets of twins, two of them consecutive; of the thirteen known child, at most one died young, and most of the others remained with their parents well into adulthood; the ages of all the members of the family, where they can be compared, were reported with perfect consistency between the censuses of 1881 and 1901. All these facts speak well for the family’s educational level and quality of child-care.
    Known issue, all born in Ontario, the maternity of the children born before 1881 being unclear:[278]

    (by first wife:)

  1. Robert Emerson Flock, b. probably in 1859, d. 5 Dec 1860, aged 6 “years” [recte months?] and 23 days, and buried with his mother, his tombstone calling him a son of Francis and Sarah Flock.
  2. Susan Elizabeth Flock, b. 1862-63 (aged 18 in 1881); living unmarried with her father in 1881, but no longer with them in 1901. According to an unsourced patrons’s submission record indexed in the IGI, she d. 12 Aug. 1885, having m. before 7 Aug. 1885 (IGI), Robert Henry Packham, but we can find no such entry in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1869-1886.
  3. Alice Ann Flock, b. 1864-65 (aged 16 in 1881); living unmarried with her father in 1891, but no longer with him in 1901.
  4. Arthur Miles Flock, b. about 14 Oct. 1865 in Binbrook Tp., d. 11 Dec 1871 in Binbrook Tp., aged 6 years, 1 month, and 27 days (according to his tombstone; his death record says 5 years), and buried with his mother, his tombstone calling him a son of Francis and Sarah Flock. His death record gives his religion as Methodist.[279]

(by second wife, all born in Binbrook Township:)

  1. William Brown Flock, b. 30 or 31 Dec. 1871.[280] He was still living unmarried with his father in 1901.
  2. Andrew Gordon Flock (called Gordon in 1901), b. 11 Oct. 1873 (birth registations not found); still living unmarried with his father in 1901.
  3. James Norman Flock, b. 21 Nov. 1875[281], d. (v.p. and v.m.) 27 Dec. 1894 in Binbrook Tp., aged 19 years, of phthisis, his death record giving his religion as Presbyterian and naming the informant as “Francis Flock, [of] Binbrook, farmer.”[282]
  4. Frank Arthur Flock, called Arthur in the 1901 census, b. 19 Sept. 1877[283]; still living unmarried with his father in 1901.
  5. Margaret Jane Maud Flock (twin to Annie), b. 29 Jan. 1879[284]; still living unmarried with her father in 1901.
  6. Annie Jane Flock (twin to Margaret), b. 29 Jan. 1879[285]; still living unmarried with her father in 1901.
  7. Isabella Blanche Flock (twin to Catharine), b. 10 April 1881[286]; still living unmarried with her parents in 1901.
  8. Catharine Ethel Flock (twin to Isabella), b. 10 April 1881[287]; still living unmarried with her parents in 1901.
  9. Ellen (“Nellie”) Florence Flock, b. 28 Jan. 1884,[288] d. unmarried 20 July 1910 at Burlington, of a brain tumor.[289] She was still living with her parents in 1901, and at the time of her death was a school-teacher.
  10. George Murray Flock (twin to John), called Murray in the 1891 census, b. 11 Jan. 1886.[290] He was still living with his parents in 1901, and still alive in 1929, when he served as the informant of his mother’s death.
  11. John Alexander Flock (twin to George), b. 11 Jan. 1886[291]; still living with his parents in 1901.

20. Paul5 Flock, son of Philip Flock, of Barton Tp., by the latter’s wife Eleanor Huffman, was b. 4 April 1833 in Ontario, bapt. 10 June 1833 in Barton Church, and d. 10 Feb. 1904 at Waterford, of pneumonia, aged over 70 years,[292] and buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Waterford, Townsend Township, Norfolk County.[293] He was living unmarried with his widowed mother in 1852, when he was a blacksmith, his shop being apparently in the town of Burford, Brant Co. He m. subsequently Mary Etta Pettit, b. 1832, d. 23 or 24 July 1908 at Waterford, aged 74 or 75 years, of heart failure.[294] and buried with her husband. Her maiden surname is supplied by the 1913 death record of her son John Hamilton Flock, and by the 1925 death record of her daughter Mary Ann (Flock) Haviland. Paul Flock and his wife were enumerated at Waterford in the 1881 census, in which he is called a blacksmith.[295] He is mentioned in a newspaper article of 1897, which states, “Paul Flock showed us a lead plate about two feet across bearing the date 1799. It belonged to his grandparents, Philip and Anna Flock and was brought from Germany about 1800. It is the property of his mother, Mrs. James Green.”[296] Paul Flock’s death record calls him a blacksmith, and gives his religion as Methodist. A death notice of his wife states, “Mrs. Paul Flock, 74, died 24 July 1908 at the home of her son-in-law, Russel Slaght of Townsend. Survived by son Charley of Chicago, son Hamilton of Waterford, daughter Mrs. Haviland of Boston, daughter Mrs. Slaght of Townsend.”[297] Known issue:

  1. Charles P. Flock, b. 1856-57 (aged 24 in 1881), who as Charles P. Flock (1856-1904) is buried with his wife Florence ____ (1859-1904) in Greenwood Cemetery, Waterford, Townsend Township, Norfolk County.[298] He was still living unmarried with his parents in 1881, when he was a lather. He was of Chicago at the time of his mother’s death in 1908, but we have not found him there in the 1910 census.
  2. John Hamilton Flock, b. about 25 July 1861, d. 3 Aug. 1913 in Windham Tp., aged 52 years and 9 days, of an abscessed appendix.[299] His death record specifically names him as a son of Paul Flock and Mary Etta Pettit. He was living with his parents in 1881, when he was a laborer. He, then of Waterford m. 30 July 1887 at Delhi,[300] Nettie Granger of Waterford, daughter of C.H. Granger (and Charity Elizabeth Beemer?). He is described as of Waterford at the time of his mother’s death in 1908, and was still there at his own death, the record of which calls him a farmer and gives his address as concession 8, lot 3. It is not known whether he had issue.
  3. Mary Ann Flock, b. 1 Aug. 1864 in Townsend Tp. (per her death record), d. 9 Dec. 1925 in Townend Tp., aged over 61 years, possibly in Scotland (the address of the undertaker), and buried at Waterford.[301] Her death record calls her a daughter of Paul Flock and Marion (sic) Pettit. She was living unmarried with her parents in 1881, when she was a dress-maker. She is called “eldest daughter of Paul Flock of Waterford” at the time of her marriage, on 26 April 1887 “at her father’s home,”[302] to Israel M. Haviland of Townsend, eldest son of the Rev. W.H. Haviland. They were of Boston at the time of her mother’s death in 1908. The informant of her own death was “R.F. Haviland, [of] Scotland, son.” Known issue (order uncertain):
    1. R.F. Haviland, of Scotland at his mother’s death in 1925.

Haviland, of Boston, and Alice Armstrong, of Hamilton.
  4. Ella Flock, b. 1868-69 (aged 12 in 1881). She was living with her parents in 1881. She m. 5 April 1892 at Waterford,[304] Russel Slaght. They were of Townsend at the time of her mother’s death in 1908.

Unplaced Persons

We list here some unplaced persons who are found near known members of the present Flach family.

Johannes Flach, m. 27 Dec. 1787 in Zion Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., N.J.,[305] Else Hoffman.

Catherine Flough, m. before 1817, Abraham Winger. Their names are known to us only from a record of their son Jacob:

  1. Jacob Winger, b. 1816-17 (aged 44 in 1861, aged 71 in 1888) in Bertie Tp., d. 18 March 1888, aged 71 years, of pneumonia.[306] He m. 2 April 1861 in Haldimand Co.,[307] Elizabeth Smelser, b. 1839-40 (aged 21 in 1861) in Prussia, daughter of Valentine Smelser and Margaret Piper. At the time of their marriage he was aged 44 and of Rainham Township, and his wife aged 21 and of the same place; the record names his parents as Abraham Winger and Catherine Flough and hers as Valentine Piper and Margaret ____. In his death record he is called a farmer, and a Menonite.

____ Flock, d. by the taking of the 1852 census; m. before 1824, Susan ____, b. 1798-99 (aged 53 in 1852) in the U.S., alive in 1852. The widow Susan Flock, aged 53 years, is found with her son William in the 1852 census of Barton Tp., Wentworth Co.[308] Known issue:

  1. William Flock, b. around 1822 (aged 27 or 28 in 1852, aged 39 or 40 in 1861, aged 47 in 1871) in Canada West, alive in 1871 (no death record found). He m. before 1854, Catherine Glover, b. 24 Jan. 1834 (per her death record) at Burlington, Ontario, d. 28 March 1924, of old age, at the Aged Women’s Home, Hamilton, Ontario,[309] and buried 30 March following in Greenwood Cemetery, Burlington, daughter of Aaron Glover and Christina Kerns, both Canadian-born (who are named in her death record). He and his wife were living with his widowed mother in 1852, when he was a farmer. They are found in the 1861 census of Nelson Tp., Halton Co., which states no occupation for William Flock; either in the same household, or an adjecent one, is his wife’s widowed mother, and son Nicholas.[310] In 1871 William is called an innkeeper.[311] The informant of Catherine’s death was her son, Wesley Flock, of Hamilton. Unfortunately, the record gives no indication of the name of her husband, who was probably already deceased, and we have not found a record of this Wesley’s birth. Only known child:

    1. Wesley Flock, b. 1852-54 (aged 7 or 8 in 1861, aged 18 in 1881). Listed immediately after him in the 1871 census is a Mary Flock, aged 20 years, who we suspect was his wife; their marital status is left blank, but unless she was his wife, she would have had to be a sister who was not recorded with their parents in 1861. We have not found him in the 1881 census.

Edward Flock, m. Melinda Ackers, b. 20 April 1829, daughter of Daniel Ackers and Elizabeth Fisher. According to Chambers they had a son, deceased by 1895, and a daughter Caroline.[312]

William Flock, of German ancestry, b. in 1804-05 (aged 69 years at his death) in Canada, d. 19 May 1874 at London, Ontario, of “debility of age.”[313] He m. before 1831, Mary McAvitt, b. in Ireland, d. 1879 at London, Ontario. His death record calls him a carpenter, and a Wesleyan Methodist. A biographical notice of his son Christopher states of him and his wife:

William Flock was born in the City of Kingston, and removed to Toronto with its first settlers. At Toronto he conducted a general business (on Yonge street) for many years before and after the rebellion. His father was a German, but his mother was of Irish descent. The maiden name of our subject's mother [i.e. of William Flock’s wife] was McAvitt, and she (Mary) Irish by birth, but of Scotch ancestors. Mr. Flock died at London in 1875 [recte 1974], and Mrs. Flock died there in 1879.[314]

Issue:[315]

  1. Christopher William Flock, b. 12 March 1831 at the town of York (now Toronto), alive in 1886. He m. 17 Nov. 1852, Helen Eliza Nelles, b. 1 Jan. 1829, daughter of William Robert Nelles and Mary Ann O’Reilly.[316] The biographical notice of him mentioned above reads, in part:
    Flock, Christopher William, St. Thomas, Ontario, licentiate of the Medical Board, Toronto, and M.D. of the University of Victoria College, M.C.P.S.O., was born in Toronto, then Little York, on the 12th March, 1831…. C.W. Flock was educated in Toronto, at James Hodgson’s Commercial and Classical academy, in the old market lane, now Colborne street, and received there a classical and mathematical education. In 1845 he began to study medicine in the Toronto School of Medicine, then called “Rolph’s” school; the late Hon. Dr. Rolph and Joseph Workman, M.D., of Toronto, were associated together in this enterprise. He passed the Medical Board in 1850, and commenced practice, having been the greater part of two years a private pupil of Dr. J. Workman’s, late superintendent of the Asylum. He was for many years coroner for the County of Halton, and made post mortem examinations on the bodies of the Donelly family, who were murdered in Biddulph township, a few years ago, and was Queen’s witness (medical) in the two trials of the notorious Jim Carroll for murder, held at the assizes in London, Ontario. Dr. Flock has two brothers in London, and one sister: Mrs. Dr. Morden: J.H. Flock, barrister; and J.R. Flock, M.D., coroner for London city. Our subject … is physician and surgeon to all the friendly and benevolent societies in the city of St. Thomas. Dr. Flock engaged in politics during the first few years of his practice, but he became disgusted after a time, and abandoned them for ever…. He sat for two years on the council board in the town of Oakville, and his career here was a zealous and useful one. He was brought up a Wesleyan Methodist, but many years ago joined the Episcopal church. He married on November 17th, 1852, Helen Eliza Nelles, grand-daughter of Colonel Robert Nelles, J.P., Grimsby, one of the oldest families in Canada. She is also a niece of Judge O’Reilly, Queen’s counsel, and master in chancery, Hamilton, Ontario. Her family is of German and Irish birth, with Scotch ancestry (Campbell) on one side. The O’Reilly family is also one of the oldest in the country. The issue of the marriage is eleven children, of whom six surviveótwo sons and four daughters. Dr. Flock has never engaged in any pursuit or enterprise unconnected with hia profession, but has led a truly professional and domestic life. He is not ambitious for political or other public distinctions, and has therefore stood aloof from party turmoil, with the exception noticed in his career. He has lived in Canada during his life, and here are his interests and his affections. He at one time engaged in the drug business in connection with his profession, but in 1866 the demands of his practice upon his time were so great that he was obliged to surrender the work of dispensing. He is a gentleman of very agreeable and courteous manners; he enjoys the repute of great professional skill, and his practice is a wide and profitable one. In social life he is a favourite, and his domestic life is an enviable one.[317]
  2. James Henry Flock, of London, barrister, b. ca. 1834, d. 1919.
  3. John R. Flock, M.D., coroner for the city of London, Ontario; b. ca. 1833, d. 1899. He m. Sarah ____, b. ca. 1831
  4. Mary M. Flock, b. ca. 1842; m. J.P. Morden, M.D., b. ca. 1841.

Elizabeth Flock m. before 1844, Joseph Dyckeman, called a carpenter in the marriage record of his son William. Known issue:

  1. William Sylvester Dyckeman, b. 1843-44 (aged 70 in 1914). He m. (2) (as her second husband) 4 March 1914 in Beverley Tp., Wentworth Co., by Methodist rites,[318] Polly (Cooley) Main, b. (aged 62 in 1914), daughter of Preserved Cooley, a farmer, by the latter’s wife Huldah Beemer. At the time of their marriage, the record of which gives the full names of both sets of parents, the groom was a farmer, both parties were of Beverley, and both had been previously married; the witnesses were Docas M. Cornell, of Rockton, Ontario, and E.M. Cornell.
  2. (?) H. Dyckman, b. 1844-45 (aged 17 in 1862) in Beverley Tp. She m. 12 Nov. 1862 in Wentworth Co., Richard Ryonalds, b. 1836-37 (aged 25 in 1862) in England, son of William Ryonalds and Mary Thomas. At the time time of their marriage, the record of which gives the full names of both sets of parents, the groom was residing in Dumfries-shire, Scotland, and the bride in Beverley Tp. We have not seen the original of this record, a published transcription of which gives the names of the bride’s parents as George T.H. Dyckman and Elizabeth Flock.

Andrew Flock, m. 27 Jan. 1858 in Stillwater Tp., Sussex Co., New Jersey (IGI), Margaret A. Louise.



Appendix: The Patrey Family bible record

The family bible record of Wilhelm Petrie (or Patrey) and his wife Elizabeth Flach is catalogued as record no. 5129, Bible and Family Records, Special Collections and University Archives, Alexander Library, 169 College Avenue, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ (see the calendar at Genealogical Society of New Jersey, Bible and Family Records, available online at http://www.rootsweb.com/~njgsnj/FR5000_5199.htm). We are greatly indebted to Brad Hurley for obtaining and making available online a copy of this record, which consists of several parts:

Below, the first and third of the above sources is each transcribed in its entirety. The second is so erroneous that its inclusion here could have no possible value, and a new translation by the present writer has been substituted. All explanatory content in square brackets has been supplied by me (J.B.D.), and I alone am responsible for any misinterpretations.

The references in the old German bible record to the “Feller Church” are conceivably a mistake for “Falckner’s Church.” The first minister to the evangelical congregation of Oldwick was Justus Falckner (served 1714-1723), who was eventually succeeded by William Anthony Graff (served 1775-1809).[319] The references to a pastor Graff in 1777 and 1780, would fit such a timeline.

Is born Liesabetha Flachin and is joined with Wilihm [sic] Petrie … and her father and mother were Andreas Flach and … Anna Maria Schülerin.” The -in ending on Schül in this record is an indication of a feminine form in Palatine German; it is not a true part of the surname and we do not consider it as such here.
10This man is treated in Chambers, Early Germans of New Jersey, pp. 159, 482-83, and in Florence Christoph, Schuyler genealogy: A compendium of sources pertaining to the Schuyler families in America, 2 vols. (1987), vol. 1, pp. 1-31, which we have seen only in Google snippet view, and which seems from second-hand accounts to attribute a German origin to him. It has sometimes been claimed that he is identical with Philip Schuyler, b. 23 Dec. 1717 in New York, son of Philip Schuyler and Hester Kingsland, but we have not examined the basis of this claim.

20In the “Flock” memoir in Chambers Anthony is called “John Shangle,” but see the treatment of his own family, pp. 478-9, for the correct identification. The statement there regarding his father’s marriages is confusing and does not establish the name of his mother, but one of these wives, Anna Margaretha Nachbar, is treated in Henzy Z. Jones, Jr., More Palatine Families… (Universal City, California, 1991), 194-5, where however there appear to be several lines of text missing between the two pages. Anna Margaretha Nachbar was definitely the mother of at least some of her husband’s children, as proved by her father’s will, abstracted in Calendar of New Jersey Wills, Administrations, etc., vol. IV (1761-1770), ed. A. Van Doren Honeyman (Documents relating to the Colonial and Revolutionary History of the State of New Jersey, 1st ser., vol. XXXIII, 1928), p. 309.

37It may have been made much earlier than this date, as it lists as if still alive his son Martin, who is said by Chambers to have died in 1843.

Peter Coss lived in Frankford Township on a farm which he and Maria his wife deed to Peter Coss, Jr., March 14, 1814…. Anna Maria Wyker, wife of Peter Coss, was a daughter of Philip Wyker, a German by birth, the first settler by the name in this section. He settled in Frankford Township in 1764 and located about a mile south of what is known as Wykertown. He had previously lived in Morris County….”

75She appears as Christina in the Patrie family bible, as Christiana in the settlement of her father’s estate, and as Christian in her husband’s will. She is called Christina by Chambers and by J.D. Flack, but Mary by the Bottings’ informants, Mrs. Charles Spiece and Frank Hansel.

The Bottings were disinclined to accept the statement of one of their informants, that she was b. 1747 and d. 1818, which suspiciously coincide with her husband’s vital dates.

78On various documents, his name is noted as Andreas Henseler, Andrew Henseller, Andreas Hensel, and Andrew Hanselar. Their marriage record refers to him as “I. Andreas Hensel,”; the “I.” presumably standing for a name beginning with J, such as Johann or Jacob (the capital letters I and J are typically indistinguishable in eighteenth-century German script). There is no entry for this family in Chambers. We are much indebted to John Beatty <beatty0007@telus.net> for supplying this account, which represents only a small part of his researches.
