OATHARINK KHKIDER MOIMA Catharine Kroidcr, daughter of Jacob, Jr., of Snltz Creek, married Isaac Mumma. b. in 1809. Ho was a farmer noar Campholltown andjater retired in Campbelltown. They wore Monnonites. Isaac was a largo, well proportioned man. He stood six foot in height and weighed 210 pounds, His wife had tho same weight. Ho was roputod in his day to bo the strongest man in Lebanon county. Ho would take one barrel of flour and stand it on another. Then he would lift tho third barrel and stand It on I ho second one, II was a puzzle to an ordinary niiin how to got the uppermost barrel hack on tho floor. In tho autumn of 17.12 Lonhart Mumma arrived In thn Pejiuea settlement settlement of Mennonites. Whether he was the ancestor of tho Lebanon county Mummas wo know not. Mum- mas went from Lancaster county down into the Valley of Virginia. Elder HenJ. Franklin Moomnw (;;K it Is there spelled) of near iMinoke, Virginia, was a leader among tho Brethren of the South, and through his efforts largely the Southern Congress Congress exempted the Brethren, with the payment of a JiJOO tax, from military service. But on the battlefield battlefield he was an angel of mercy to the wounded soldier, whether clad in blue or gray. His biographer says the name is French. Not a few French were found among the Mon- nonites. Tho Forney family is also of French origin and Mennonite. Jacob Mumma on August 23, 1746, received a warrant for 100 acres of land In Lebanon township. This land joined tho present, farm of John Henry Gingrich, at Ml. Pleasant. Michael Bachinan had bought over 400 acres here, in 1740, and in 1747 sold about one-half of it to Yost Gingrich. The survey states that Gingrich's land ran by land of Jacob Mumma. But what became the Mumma homestead was some distance distance farther west. The Burk- holders and the Mummas united in laying out a cemetery on the Hue between the farms of each, the Mum- mas being to the west, farm now owned by Peter Shenk, of Campbelltown. Campbelltown. This cemetery, BO densely overgrown as to' be almost impenetrable, impenetrable, however, yielded up some secrets to our efforts. The following following inscriptions we could read: Jacob Mumma, h. June 12, 1767; d. Jan. 27,^848. Jacob Mumma, b. May 15, 1775; d. Nov. 22, 1862. Joseph Mumma, b. Mar. 9, 1811; d. Feb. 21, 1851. Jacob Mumma, b. Jan. 11, 1812; d. Sept. 20, 1872. Leah Mumma, b.
