B, ^ VU i,i aU vv.«i ftrtnft Otbfef tWO later 'secured by fe&nert.- it fan by land already weared by Kel- tfer£» by land of Jacob Mfckiey, of "vVni. Steftr and by land formerly df'G*o. t»etet now of Caspe* Deetor; it being p*rt of 291% a^res, which the Penns conveyed Sept, 28, 1751, to George Peter.' Ttoose who bare read the ttelst history will notice that this was the same year that the RSlsts Itt tftis neighborhood secured land ffoni the Penh*. George Peter and Anna Margaretha, his wife, on June 18; 1*55, conveyed this land to Casper Deetor, Sf», who we see above conveyed 50 axsfes and 66 perches of H to Kelnert. So according to the addition of the times Kelnert h&d 244 acres and 140 perches, his entire tract made up of three contiguous tracts he conveyed conveyed April IB, 1773, to Nicholas Ensmlnger. Ensmlngef'was also a blacksmith, likely taking Kelnert's old stand, if we mistake not, Dr. Ensmlnger of Mt. Aetna, a descendant descendant of Nicholas, told us that his ancestor ancestor was a member of old Salem Lutheran church and owned land in the town of Lebanon, and had been a blacksmith here, Nicholas Ensmlnger made his will Feb. 24, 1781. He appointed Christopher Christopher Zebold of Lebanon township and Jacob PhHIppi of Heidelberg township as his executors. He says: "It Is my will that my Plantation whereon I now live shall be valued nnd appraised by four responsible men which my hereafter named executors executors shall choose, unto my two beloved sons, Peter and Daniel, before before mentioned, when my youngest son Is fourteen years old." This youngest son became fourteen years before May 14, 1791, when the land wiia equally divided between the sons. Peter and Daniel. The persons chosen to value were Adam Orth, Baltzer Orth, John Swelkert Imbo'den and Henry Buehler. These sons were to pay a certain amount to the father's widow, Elizabeth Ensmlnger. Daniel Ensmlnger died without Issue, though married, leav'ng brothers brothers and sisters. The brother Jacob and sister Elizabeth, m. John Burkholder, Burkholder, .on May 2, 1802. ocnvnyed their share In tnls estate to Peter Ensmlnger; and Jonathan Ensmlnger and sister Christiana, m. Jacob Thomas.conveyed their share Jan. 15, 1808 to Daniel Miller, Jr. The brother brother Christian Ensmlnger conveyed Mar. .20, 1R10, his share to Jona- Hian Ensmlnger; Peter, Jonathan, Wilier, and the widow make partition partition of 82 acres and 90 perches as follows: 41 acres, 45 porches to Jonathan; 27 acres, 32 S-10 perches Lo Peter: and 14 acres and 12 perches perches to Daniel Miller. Jr. Jonathan Ensmlnper convoyed April 1/1830. to John Ensmlniror land received from brother Daniel's share, or 40 acres, nnd the other about. 16 acres. Peter loft his land to his son John. Peter's daughters were: Elizabeth, m. Jacob Reigert; Catharine, m. Daniel Miller; Sunan- na', m. Conrad Smith; and Christiana, m. Christian Stauffer. This endn the. history of Honry Kreider, the martyr of the Revolution. Revolution. We shall next turn our attention attention to .Henry's'brother Jacob, who lived on the farm joining on the west, also a part, of the original tract of John, the sottler on Rnitz Creek. OATHAIUNE KRETDRR L ALDER- MILCH Catharine Kreidor, the younger daughter of Henry Krnidnr of Snitz Creek, was born the same year and the sain emonth an was the county of Lebanon itself. She married John Laudermilch of the Laudormllch homestead southeast of the Fair Grounds. The Laudermilch farm IB imodlately north of the old Kreider estate; and this Is not the only, not the first, niarrlage between the two families. We shall find that it is not the last. Tradition Is that there were three Laudermilch brothers originally In Lebanon county one lived near are burled, one settled on Snltz Schaeffer'stown, where Laudermilchs are buried, one settled on Snitz Creek and one settled north of Palmyra, Palmyra, where Is now Laudermilch's bridge. Among early warrantees in Heidelberg township we find the following: following: Godfried Lautermill, 100 acres, May 11, 1738; John Lauter- rnllk, 100 acres, Sept. 14, 1738; and Wendal Lautermill, 200 acres, Sept. 14, 1738. These are likely the three brothers, who were afterward distributed distributed as indicated. Perhaps John was the one who came to Snltz Creek as that has boon a prevailing name in the family here. Up to 1759 the lists of taxables In Lebanon township do not contain the name of Laudermilch: but the next list we have after 1759, that of Heidelberg township. The old Laudermilchs were Reformed Reformed and had been burled In the Tabor cemetery at Lebanon, but have since been removed to Mt. Lebanon cemetery. The tomb stone there tells us-that John Laudermilch, the father of John who married Catharine Kreider, Kreider, and the son of John the taxable of 1780, was born Sept. 17, 1787, and died Oct. 2, 1872. His wife Mary was born Sept. 29. 1797, and died June 3, 1878. John, whom Catharine Kreider brings Into these- records, was born Jan. 2S, 1811, and died Dec. 28, 1SSO. He was u farmer on the homestead, homestead, which bo not only owned but also the present, Kline nnd Solomon Laudormllch farms, all adjoining lands. John and Catharine also were Reformed. Their remains', rest in the Laudermllch block In Mt. Lebanon Lebanon cemetery, which is a credit to the family. It may be of some Interest here to i nd.d that the Proprietaries of Penu- [sylvn'nla by.Patent of Aug. 22, 1766. confirmed to one Philip Stoehr. 270 acres, 62 perches of land. Philip and his wife Anna Marv on June 1, 1768, conveyed this to Henry Stoehr, their son, who by his will of Jan, 17, is?n (year not clear)- gaye th|s tract to his two sons. John and Jacob. John and Jacob made parUtion,.and Jan. 8. 1782, John released to'Jacob, '"" »?l™ J h « oth ^ ^^fWV. 'wife of Pet* Sftatitej Rdttftft, wife of Joseph iJalglftle, and Harry Stoehr. Wnen Jonh rfeleaeed its Jftcdb la 1782, Jacob'* land r»n, by- labd of John Stoehn of Tobias Stoerer, of Philip! Glonlttgfer, by oatlots of the town of Lebanon, by land of Henry Crydef and of Jacob Cryder. Henry Cryder was the martyr, died in 1779, but his children were yet roJnora and the land was In his name. His farm was the present Lorenzo Laudermilch farm. The land of Jacob Crydef was the present farm of John 8. Kreider, both farms to the sonth. The Gloningeir farm was to the west likely tfce present Jacob Kreider farm, for It early belonged to the Glonlngers. . It may, however, have been the other Stoehr farm latef purchased purchased by Glonlnger,. for his farms were many. Stoeyer must have been north, and the outlets of Lebanon to the east. The Jacob Stoehr farm was conveyed conveyed by- Stoehr and wife Barbara on May 22, 1878, to John Lauder- mllch. How Laudermnch could be a taxable according to the Hat . on 138 acres In 1780, the reader may figure out. John Laudermllch conveyed conveyed this farm to his aon John, Jr., on March 4, 1822; and John, Jr., was the father of John, ' the Third, (If not John the Fourth), husband husband of Catharine Kreider. John and Catharine had 7 children: MALINDA LAUDERMILCH, m.
