and they had eight children. Gottlieb David Ettle. Of him little is known excepting that he was an early settler in Middletown and the head of the family bearing that surname, of whom a number continue to reside in Middle - town. He was zealous in the cause of old St Peter's church, and one of the two authorized by license to secure subscriptions and collect funds for the erection of the church. It is said of him that on his col lecting tour he walked to and from Philadel phia. When he died or where buried we know not, but certainly the worshipers ot St. Peter's at an early day neglected their duty when, after his death, they did not erect over his grave a suitable Btone to mark his resting place, for he deserved it. He and his wife are undoubtedly buried in the Lutheran grave yard on Pine street. Of their children we have: John Pliilip, b. 1755; d. 1820; his wife, Mary, b. 1755, d. 1839; David, b. 1761, d. 1821, and bis wile, Mary Magdalena, a. 1763, d. 1829. There are residing in the. borough a num ber of the descendants of this family. -
