1888 LIVINGSTON COUNTY PORTRAITS AND BIOS


CONRAD MUNZ


CONRAD MUNZ, WHOSE FARM IS LOCATED ON SECTION 25, AND IS CONSIDERED THE FINEST IN THE TOWNSHIP OF PLEASANT RIDGE, WAS BORN IN THE CANTON OF THURGAN, SWITZERLAND, ON THE 29TH OF APRIL, 1841. THIS CANTON IS IN THE NORTHEASTERN PART OF SWITZERLAND, AND IS SEPARATED FROM BADEN BY THE RIVER RHINE. IT HAS AN AREA OF 270 SQUARE MILES, AND A POPULATION OF ABOUT 100,000, OF WHOM FOUR-FIFTHS ARE PROTESTANTS. THE SURFACE IS UNDULATING AND FERTILE, AND THE COUNTRY IS WATERED BY THE THUR, THE SITTER AND MURG RIVERS. AGRICULTURE, SPINNING AND WEAVING ARE THE CHIEF OPERATION OF THE INHABITANTS. THE PARENTS OF MR. MUNZ WERE JACOB AND ELIZABETH (ALTWEGG) MUNZ, WHO WERE NATIVES OF SWITZERLAND. THE FATHER WAS BORN ON THE 4TH OF SEPTEMBER 1812, DIED JUNE 21, 1858. HE WAS BY OCCUPATION A FARMER AND WINE DEALER, AND ACHIEVED CONSIDERABLE REPUTATION FOR THE VINTAGE OF HIS WINES. THE MOTHER WAS BORN IN SWITZERALND JULY 29, 1822, AND DIED JAN. 3, 1861. THEY WERE BOTH DEVOTED TO ZEALOUS CHRISTIAN WORK. THE NAMES OF THE CHILDREN WERE AS FOLLOWS: CONRAD, JACOB, IDA, EMIL, ANNA, JOHN AND WILHELMINA, TWO OF WHOM DIED IN INFANCY.


MR. MUNZ CAME TO AMERICA IN 1873, AND LANDED IN NEW YORK OCTOBER 28. HE CAME ALMOST IMMEDIATELY TO LIVINGSTON COUNTY, AND PURCHASED 120 ACRES OF LAND, TO WHICH HE HAS ADDED FORTY ACRES. HE HAS ERECTED A FULL COMPLEMENT OF FARM BUILDINGS, ALL OF WHICH ARE CONSTRUCTED WITH A VIEW TO COMFORT AND BEAUTY. HE HAS PUT IN OVER 30,000 TILES AND HAS, THEREFORE, A MOST COMPLETELY DRAINED FARM. TAKING ITS APPOINTMENTS THROUGHOUT MR. MUNZ HAS AS FINE A FARM AS THERE IS IN PLEASANT RIDGE TOWNSHIP, AND HE HAS RECENTLY PURCHASED 104 ACRES OF VERY EXCELLENT LAND NEAR FAIRBURY, LIVINGSTON COUNTY.


AUGUST 29, 1871, MR. MUNZ WAS MARRIED IN SWITZERLAND TO CATHERINE BLUMER, WHO WAS BORN FEB. 2, 1849. TO THEM HAVE BEEN BORN THE FOLLOWING CHILDREN: FRIEDA, ANNIE, DAVID, PAUL, JONATHAN AND CONRAD. TWO CHILDREN DIED IN INFANCY. MR. AND MRS. MUNZ ARE BOTH MEMBERS OF THE OMISH CHURCH, IN WHICH CHURCH THEY WERE BOTH RAISED.


MR. MUNZ IS AN ENTERPRISING CATTLE GROWER, AND RAISES A CONSIDERABLE NUMBER OF HORSES, BUT DOES NOT MAKE ANY PRETENSION TO CULTIVATING BLOODED HORSES, HE HAS ON HIS FARM A LARGE VINEYARD, AND EACH YEAR MANUFACTURES FROM SIX TO EIGHT BARRELS OF WINE. MR. MUNZ PROCURED THE PAPERS WHICH MADE HIM A FULL CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES ONLY ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO. HE HAS NOT TAKEN A VERY ACTIVE INTEREST IN POLITIES, CARING NOTHING FOR OFFICE-HOLDING, AND THE ONLY OFFICIAL POSITION HE HAS CONSENTED TO HOLD WAS THAT OF SCHOOL DIRECTOR, FOR WHICH HE WAS EMINENTLY FITTED BY EDUCATION. IN HIS NATIVE COUNTRY MR. MUNZ RECEIVED A HIGH EDUCATION, AND WHILE IN THAT COUNTRY HE WAS ENGAGED MOST OF THE TIME AS BOOKKEEPER AND CLERK IN A LARGE SILK AND DAMASK FACTORY, A POSITION WHICH REQUIRED CONSIDERABLE KNOWLEDGE OF BUSINESS. AT ONE TIME IN SWITZERLAND HE WAS QUITE WEALTHY, BUT REVERSES OVERTOOK HIM WHICH SWEPT AWAY THE GREATER PORTION OF HIS FORTUNE. HE IS NOW ONE OF MOST ENTERPRISING AND SUBSTANTIAL MEN OF THE TOWNSHIP IN WHICH HE RESIDES, AND ENJOYS THE CONFIDENCE OF EVERYBODY WHO KNOWS HIM.

HE STARTED THE GROWING OF SORGHUM ON HIS LAND AFTER MOVING TO FAIRBURY, AND IN 1889 BUILT A PLANT FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF MOLASSES, EQUIPPING IT WITH MODERN MACHINERY, AND ENLARGING IT IN 1895. IN 1907 HIS PLANT BURNED, BUT MR. MUNZ REBUILT AGAIN USING MORE MODERN MACHINERY, AND TURNING OUT THOUSANDS OF GALLONS OF MOLASSES YEARLY, AND GIVING EMPLOYMENT TO MANY PEOPLE. ANOTHER ENTERPRISE WHICH MR. MUNZ DEVELOPED WAS THE MUNZ SAND AND GRAVEL PIT, WHICH HAS BEEN FOR SEVERAL YEARS PAST OPERATED BY HIS SON, CONRAD MUNZ, JR. AT ONE TIME HE EXPERIMENTED ON THE RAISING OF TOBACCO ON QUITE A LARGE SCALE, BUT IT NOT PROVING A PROFITABLE VENTURE WAS DISCONTINUED.


MR. MUNZ WAS WELL INFORMED MAN, BROAD IN HIS VIEWS, AND ALWAYS CONSIDERATE OF HIS FELLOWMEN. A GOOD CITIZEN AND A KIND FATHER, HE WILL BE MISSED IN THE COMMUNITY AND HOME.


MR. MUNZ WAS BORN IN SULGEN, SWITZERLAND, APRIL 29, 1841, SON OF JACOB AND ELIZABETH ALTWEG MUNZ, AND THE OLDEST OF A FAMILY OF NINE CHILDREN, ALL OF WHOM HAVE PRECEDED HIM IN DEATH.

ELDER GEORGE M. MANGOLD 1822 - 1894


ZION'S HARP HYMNAL CREATOR, BURIED IN GRACELAND CEMETERY, FAIRBURY.


ON JANUARY 1, 1847, FROEHLICH OPENED A MEETING OF THE BRETHREN FOR ELECTION OF THE FOLLOWING ELDERS: JOHN DIEBOLD, GEORGE MICHAEL MANGOLD, FRIEDRICH PFAFF TO TAKE CARE OF THE RAPIDLY ORGANIZED CONGREGATIONS IN STRASBURG, BISCHWILLLER, REICHSHOFFEN, GUMBRECHTSHOFEN, WERDEN, NIEDERBRONN, MOUTERHOUSE, BAERRENTHAL, ZINSWILLER, RAPPERTSWILLER, KEHL, MULHOUSE, AVRICOURT AND BERANGE. JOHN DIEBOLD, ESPECIALLY, SERVED AS A FAITHFUL PIONEER IN ALSACE FOR 50 YEARS UNTIL HIS DEATH IN 1896.


A YEAR BEFORE FROEHLICH'S DEATH THE MEETING HAD TO BE HELD OUTSIDE STRASBURG SO THAT ON MARCH 31, 1856, BROTHER KLEIN OF OBERBRONN WAS INSTALLED IN GUMPRECHTSHOFEN AS ELDER AND ON APRIL 1, 1856 BROTHER GUNST IN BISCHWILLER.


GEORGE MANGOLD EMIGRATED TO THE U. S. A. AFTER FROEHLICH'S DEATH. IT WAS HIS COMMISSION TO PREPARE THE ZION'S HARP USING THE FORMER CHRISTIAN HARMONICA WHICH INCLUDED 182 HYMNS USED BY THE ASSEMBLIES OF EVANGELICAL BAPTISTS.

______________


AFTER HIS EMIGRATION TO AMERICA AROUND 1878, HE NO LONGER WAS SERVING AS AN ELDER FOR THE CHURCH. NOT MUCH IS KNOWN ABOUT HIM WHEN HE SERVED AS AN ELDER. HE IS KNOWN MORE FOR HIS LABORS ON THE ZION'S HARP HYMNAL, HE WROTE TWENTY-SIX SONGS FOR THE BOOK.


IT IS UNCERTAIN WHERE HE LIVED WHEN HE ARRIVED IN ILLINOIS. HE MAY HAVE LIVED IN ROANOKE OR GRIDLEY FOR A TIME, BUT MUST HAVE ALSO LIVED IN THE FAIRBURY AREA AT THE END OF HIS LIFE, BECAUSE HE IS BURIED IN THE OLD CHURCH SECTION OF GRACELAND CEMETERY, IN FAIRBURY.

ELDER MICHAEL ZIMMERMAN 1820 - 1913


1889 PORTRAIT AND BIOGRAPHICAL ALBUM OF WOODFORD CO. IL.


REV. MICHAEL ZIMMERMANN, ONE OF THE MOST PROSPEROUS AND BEST KNOWN GERMAN FARMERS OF MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP HAS BEEN A CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTY SINCE JANUARY, 1849. HIS PRESENT ESTATE CONSISTS OF 490 ACRES OF LAND, WHICH IS DIVIDED INTO THREE DIFFERENT FARMS, EACH ONE BEING WELL SUPPLIED WITH WATER, A GOOD RESIDENCE AND OTHER FARM BUILDINGS, AND NEARLY ALL OF THE LAND IS UNDER A GOOD STATE OF CULTIVATION. HIS FIRST PURCHASE CONSISTED OF 100 ACRES, WHICH WAS ONLY SLIGHTLY IMPROVED, AND ITS PRESENT FINE CONDITION IS OWING TO HIS INDUSTRY, ENERGY, AND BUSINESS MANAGEMENT. BESIDES ABUNDANCE OF GOOD WATER AND GRASS LAND, FITTED TO SUPPORT FINE STOCK, HE HAS ALSO AN ABUNDANCE OF TIMBER, WHICH SUPPLIES SHADE AND LUMBER FOR ALL NECESSARY BUILDINGS. MR. ZIMMERMANN CAME TO ILLINOIS IN FEBRUARY, 1848, AND RENTED A SMALL PLACE SOUTH OF WASHINGTON, IN TAZEWELL COUNTY, FOR ONE YEAR. BUT IN THE SUCCEEDING AUTUMN OF THE SAME YEAR HE GAVE IT UP, AND REMOVED TO MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP, THIS COUNTY, TO THE PLACE WHERE HE NOW RESIDES. BEFORE COMING TO THIS STATE, HAD RESIDED IN OHIO, SPENDING NINE YEARS OF HIS LIFE IN BUTLER COUNTY, THAT STATE.


OUR SUBJECT WAS BORN IN GERMANY, SEPT. 27, 1820, IN THE STATE OF BADEN. HIS FATHER, ANDREW ZIMMERMANN, WAS ALSO A NATIVE OF BADEN, WHERE HE WAS BORN IN 1793, AND TWO YEARS AFTER COMING TO AMERICA, HE DEPARTED THIS LIFE AT HIS HOME IN BUTLER COUNTY, OHIO, JAN. 13, 1811. ANDREW ZIMMERMANN WAS LEFT AN ORPHAN IN HIS EARLY YOUTH, BUT FRIENDS TOOK CARE OF THE CHILD, AND REARED HIM CAREFULLY, TEACHING HIM SCIENTIFIC FARMING, AS FOLLOWED BY THE GERMAN OF THOSE DAYS. WHEN ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR A FAMILY HE MARRIED MISS FANNIE MILLER, A NATIVE OF BADEN, AND MEMBER OF A GOOD GERMAN FAMILY. THE FRUIT OF THIS UNION WAS FIVE CHILDREN, FOUR SONS AND ONE DAUGHTER. BEING CONSTANTLY IN RECEIPT OF NEWS FROM AMERICA, AND LEARNING FROM FRIENDS HOW MUCH MORE PROFITABLY FARMING COULD BE CARRIED ON IN THE UNTIED STATES THAN IN THEIR NATIVE COUNTRY, THEY MADE UP THEIR MINDS TO EMIGRATE. SO WITH THEIR FIVE CHILDREN THEY SET OUT ON THEIR JOURNEY TO THE NEW WORLD. AT HAVRE THEY EMBARKED IN A SAILING-VESSEL BOUND FOR NEW YORK CITY, WHERE THEY LANDED AFTER A FAIRLY PROSPEROUS VOYAGE OF THIRTY-ONE DAYS ON THE GOOD SHIP "RONLY." IN ORDER TO SECURE MEANS TO PAY THEIR PASSAGE AND INCIDENTAL EXPENSES, THEY WERE OBLIGED TO BORROW MONEY, WHICH AMOUNTED TO SOME $365, AND TO PAY THIS DEBT, IT WAS NECESSARY FOR THEM ALL TO WORK, AS SOON AS LOCATED WHERE WORK BECAME POSSIBLE AND PROFITABLE. BEING HONEST, INDUSTRIOUS AND ECONOMICAL, AND PROVIDENTIALLY BLESSED WITH HEALTH AND STRENGTH, ALTHOUGH THE TIMES WERE VERY HARD, THEY SUCCEEDED TO THEIR GREAT GRATIFICATION, IN PAYING OFF EVERY CENT OF THIS, TO THEM. LARGE DEBT. THE DEATH OF MR. ZIMMERMANN TWO YEARS AFTER LOCATING IN BUTLER COUNTY, OHIO, LEFT THE MOTHER AND FIVE CHILDREN STILL POOR, BUT OUT OF DEBT AND WITH SOME COMFORTS AND CONVENIENCES GATHERED AROUND THEM, AND ABLE TO FACE THE WOULD WITH CHEERFUL COURAGE,


OUR SUBJECT, WHO WAS THE ELDEST OF THE FAMILY, WAS AT THE TIME OF HIS FATHER'S DECEASE, TWENTY-ONE YEARS OF AGE, AND, BEING WELL SECONDED BY THE YOUNGER CHILDREN, WAS OF GREAT HELP TO HIS MOTHER, WHO WAS A WOMAN FULLY CAPABLE OF MANAGING THE BUSINESS AFFAIRS CONNECTED WITH THE FARM. BETWEEN THEM THEY SECURED ENOUGH MONEY TO EMIGRATE TO THE LAND OF PROMISE, WHICH WAS IN THOSE DAYS SYNONYMOUS WITH THE STATE OF ILLINOIS. OUR SUBJECT ALSO TOOK WITH HIM TO THE NEW HOME A WIFE, WHO WAS A LADY WELL-FITTED FOR THE DUTIES AND TRAILS OF PIONEER DAYS. THEIR JOURNEY WAS NOT MADE IN THE USUAL STYLE OF WAGONS AND HORSES, BUT WAS PERFORMED BY TAKING THE LONGER BUT MORE COMFORTABLE WATER ROUTE, WHICH EMBRACED A TRIP TO CINCINNATI, THENCE ON THE OHIO TO ST. LOUIS, THEN UP THE ILLINOIS RIVER TO PEORIA, WHERE THEY LEFT THE WATER, AND MADE THE REST OF THE JOURNEY WITH TEAMS.


MR. ZIMMERMANN WITH TRUE FILIAL REGARD TOOK ESPECIAL CARE OF HIS MOTHER FROM THE TIME OF HIS MARRIAGE, AND WHEN HE HAD SECURED A HOME OF HIS OWN IN ILLINOIS, HE AND HIS EXCELLENT WIFE APPORTIONED THE MOST COMFORTABLE PLACE FOR HER USE, WHICH SHE RETAINED UNTIL CALLED UPON TO LEAVE THE SCENE OF LIFE'S CHANGES, AND MEET HER HUSBAND IN THE OTHER WORLD. HER DEATH IN 1850, AT THE AGE OF FIFTY-FIVE YEARS, LIFE A CHAIR VACANT IN MICHAEL ZIMMERMANN'S HOME, BUT THE MEMORY OF GRANDMA WILL EVER BE CHERISHED BY HER LOVING CHILDREN AND THEIR LITTLE ONES. MR.

THE PARENTS, PETER AND BARBARA (BECK) NAFFZINGER, HAD LEFT THEIR HOME IN THE RHINE PROVINCE OF BYRON, AND EMBARKED IN 1826 ON A SAILING-VESSEL AND AFTER ESCAPING ALL THE DANGERS OF THE MIGHTY DEEP, WERE SAFELY LANDED AT THEIR DESTINATION, PHILADELPHIA, PA. ALTHOUGH THE ORIGINAL INTENTION OF MR. AND MRS. NAFFZINGER HAD BEEN TO GO TO CANADA, THEY WERE SO MUCH PLEASED WITH THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, THAT THEY CONCLUDED TO REMAIN THERE, BUT AFTER RESIDING THERE SOMETIME, THEY WERE INDUCED TO GO TO BUTLER COUNTY, OHIO, IN WHICH PLACE THEY LOCATED AND REMAINED SEVERAL YEARS, PROSPERING FAIRLY WELL. BUT IN 1844, BEARING GLOWING ACCOUNTS OF THE FORTUNES TO BE MADE IN ILLINOIS, THEY CONCLUDED TO SELL OUT, AND REMOVE TO THE NEWER COUNTRY. THEY FIRST LOCATED AT SPRING BAY, THIS COUNTY, MAKING THEIR HOME WITH AN ELDER SON WHO HAD PROCEDED THEM. THE MOTHER OF MRS. ZIMMERMANN BADE FAREWELL TO THE SCENES OF LIFE, AT THE HOME OF A YOUNGER SON IN TAZEWELL COUNTY, ILL., HAVING LIVED FIVE YEARS OVER THE ALLOTTED THREE-SCORE YEARS AND TEN. MR. NAFFZINGER SURVIVED FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, AND AT LENGTH DEPARTED FROM HIS EARTHLY TENEMENT, AT THE HOME OF HIS SON, PETER, IN MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP, BEING NEARLY NINETY-SEVEN YEARS OLD. THEY WERE WORTHY MEMBERS OF THE MENNONITE CHURCH DURING LIFE. MR. NAFFZINGER HOLDING THE OFFICE OF AN ELDER.


MRS. CATHERINE ZIMMERMANN CAME TO BUTLER COUNTY, OHIO, WHEN A MERE CHILD, AND WAS REARED AND EDUCATED IN THAT PLACE, LEARNING NOT ONLY WHAT BOOKS COULD TEACH, BUT ALSO RECEIVING A GOOD PRACTICAL TRAINING IN DOMESTIC LIFE AND FARM WORK. SHE HAS BEEN OF GREAT ASSISTANCE TO HER HUSBAND IN MAKING AND IMPROVING THEIR HOME, AND HAS BECOME THE MOTHER OF TWELVE CHILDREN, THREE OF WHOM ARE DECEASED, NAMELY: CATHERINE, WHO DIED WHEN THREE YEARS OLD; ELIZABETH DIED WHEN ABOUT TWO YEARS OLD; AND JACOB, WHO LIVED TO BE A FINE LAD OF THIRTEEN YEARS.

ALL THE FAMILY OF MR. AND MRS. ZIMMERMANN ARE INTELLIGENT, ENERGETIC AND SELF-SUPPORTING; IDLENESS BEING CONSIDERED A VICE, AND INDUSTRY A VIRTUE. MR. AND MRS. ZIMMERMANN ARE AMONG THE MOST PROMINENT MEMBERS AND LIBERAL SUPPORTERS OF THE NEW MENNONITE CHURCH, TO THE SPIRITUAL NEEDS OF WHICH MR. ZIMMERMANN MINISTERS, HOLDING THE OFFICE OF AN ELDER, AND BEING WELL QUALIFIED FOR THE POSITION BY HIS GENERAL INTELLIGENCE AND SCRIPTURAL KNOWLEDGE.

THE GRAVE SITE OF ELDER MICHAEL ZIMMERMAN


IF YOU WERE LOOKING FOR THE GRAVE OF MICHAEL AND HIS WIFE CATHERINE, YOU WOULDN'T FIND THEM IN THE CONGERVILLE APOSTOLIC CEMETERY.

THE CEMETERY WAS STARTED WHEN A MEMBER OF THE ZIMMERMAN FAMILY DIED. THEY, OWNING THE FARMLAND IT WAS LOCATED ON, STARTED BURYING FAMILY MEMBERS THERE IT WAS TRADITION AT THAT TIME TO BURY THEIR DEAD ON THE HOME PLACE. IN FACT, MRS. MICHEAL ZIMMERMAN DID NOT WANT TO BE BURIED THERE, BUT HER HUSBAND DID, SO IN ORDER TO BE BURIED BY HER HUSBAND, SHE TOO WAS BURIED THERE. SHE WANTED TO BE BURIED IN THE CONGERVILLE APOSTOLIC CEMETERY.


THERE ARE MORE GRAVES HERE, BUT NO MARKERS AND NO KNOWN RECORDS OF THE CEMETERY. THE CEMETERY IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE LANTZ CEMETERY, ALTHOUGH THE PEOPLE IN THE VICINITY KNOW IT BY THE NAME ZIMMERMAN.

JACOB VON TOBEL


JACOB VON TOBEL HAS GONE TO REST. HE PASSED AWAY AT HIS HOME IN THIS CITY YESTERDAY MORNING, MARCH 2ND 1933, AT 5:20 O'CLOCK AT THE AGE OF 93 YEARS, 11 MONTHS AND 7 DAYS. HIS DEATH CAME AFTER AN ILLNESS OF ABOUT TWO AND A HALF MONTHS DURATION.


MR. VON TOBEL WAS BORN MARCH 26 1839, IN MEILEN CANTON, ZURICH SWITZERLAND. HE RECEIVED HIS EARLY EDUCATION IN HIS NATIVE LAND, AND IT WAS THERE THAT HE TOOK UP THE TRADE OF CABINET MAKER. IN 1868, LURED PERHAPS BY THE LETTERS HIS FRIENDS SENT HIM ABOUT THE LAND BEYOND THE STORMFUL ATLANTIC, HE DECIDED TO MIGRATE TO AMERICA. THIS WAS ABOUT THE TIME THAT AMERICA WAS UNDERGOING MANY CHANGES DURING THE PERIOD OF RECONSTRUCTION FOLLOWING THE CIVIL WAR. THIS AMBITION-FIRED YOUNG CABINET MAKER, HOWEVER, SAW IN THIS LAND ONLY OPPORTUNITY, AS IT HAD NEVER BEEN OFFERED TO HIM BEFORE.


UPON HIS ARRIVAL IN AMERICA HE CAME DIRECTLY TO FAIRBURY. HERE HE FOLLOWED THE TRADE OF CABINET MAKER FOR A TIME AND AFTER A FEW YEARS ENGAGED IN BUSINESS FOR HIMSELF. AFTER A TIME HE BROADENED HIS BUSINESS TO INCLUDE BUILDING OPERATIONS, AND ONE OF HIS FIRST UNDERTAKINGS WAS THE REMODELING OF THE OLD MITCHELL HOUSE, WHICH LATER CAME TO BE KNOWN AS THE FAIRBURY HOUSE.


EVER PROGRESSIVE IN SPIRIT MR. VON TOBEL BECAME A LEADER IN BUSINESS ACTIVITY IN THIS COMMUNITY. HIS NEXT MOVE WAS HIS ENTRANCE INTO THE LUMBER AND BUILDING MATERIAL BUSINESS IN THIS CITY. HIS FIRST YARD WAS LOCATED ON WHAT IS NOW KNOWN AS CENTRAL PARK. IT TOOK IN THIS ENTIRE SPACE BEFORE ITS EXPANSION WAS COMPLETE. IN 1900 HE WAS READY TO RETIRE. HIS SON-IN-LAW, J. N. BACH, CARRIED ON THE BUSINESS WHICH HE LEFT, AND THE BUSINESS HE FOUNDED IS STILL IN EXISTENCE TODAY.


ON MARCH 19 1871, MR. VON TOBEL WAS UNITED IN MARRIAGE TO MISS CATHERINE KELLER, A GIRL FROM HIS NATIVE LAND. MR. AND MRS. VON TOBEL WERE THE PARENTS OF TWELVE CHILDREN, FOUR OF WHOM SURVIVE. HE ALSO LEAVES A SISTER, SUSAN VON TOBEL, WHO HAS MADE HER HOME WITH HIM FOR MANY YEARS; TWENTY-ONE GRANDCHILDREN AND NINE GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN.


MR. VON TOBEL SO LIVED HIS LIFE THAT ANYONE MIGHT WELL PROFIT BY HIS EXAMPLE. FAIR IN HIS BUSINESS DEALINGS, KIND TO HIS FAMILY, LOYAL TO HIS FRIENDS AND TRUE TO HIS FAITH, HE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED AS A MAN AMONG MEN.


HE WAS A MEMBER OF THE APOSTOLIC CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND ONE OF ITS MOST FAITHFUL MEMBERS AND FOLLOWERS. FOR MANY YEARS, UNTIL HIS INCREASING YEARS WOULD NO LONGER PERMIT HIM TO OFFICIATE, HE WAS A PREACHER IN THE LOCAL CHURCH. UNDER HIS GUIDANCE THE CHURCH GREW TO BE ONE OF THE STRONGEST BODIES IN THIS COMMUNITY.


HIS FRIENDS HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED PASSING HIS WAY AND IN THESE LATER YEARS IT WAS A REAL SATISFACTION TO HEAR HIS ASSURANCE OF THE FUTURE WHEN THEY PAUSED TO PASS THE TIME OF DAY WITH HIM. ALWAYS HIS ANSWER WAS THE SAME TO THE QUESTION OF "GOOD MORNING. MR. VON TOBEL, HOW ARE YOU?"


"WELL, THANK YOU. BUT I AM AN OLD MAN NOW, AND I HAVE LIVED A LONG LIFE AND I AM READY TO GO."


FUNERAL SERVICES WILL BE HELD FROM THE APOSTOLIC CHRISTIAN CHURCH SUNDAY, WITH BURIAL AT GRACELAND CEMETERY.

The 1820 Canfield Township, Trumball County, Ohio census indicates the number of males and females who resided with Jabez Hitchcock.
One male 10 to 16
One male 26 to 45 (Jabez Sr.)
Four females under 10
Three females 10 to 16
One female 26 to 45
One person is employed in agricuture.

The 1830 Canfield Township, Trumball County, Ohio census has the following information about those who live with Jabez:

One male under five years of age (Jabez Jr.)
Two males of five and under ten
One male of 20 and under 30
One male of 40 and under 50 (Jabez SR.)
Two females of 10 and under 15
Two females of 15 and under 20
One female of 20 and under 30
One of 40 and under 50 (Lovinia)


The 1850 Montville, Medina County census has Jabez 68 years old. His sons, Frederick 22, Jabez 18, and a female, Lydia Ann live with him. Jabez the elder and Frederick are farmers. The younger Jabez is a laborer. Jabez was born in Connecticut and all of the others in Ohio.

The 1860 Medina, Medina County Census (M653_1007 page. 211) lists Jabez as 65 years old and having been born in New York. He has $50 in personal wealth and does not own land. He apparently lives in a building with Alpheus Lucus who is 42 and was also born in New York. Both are laborers.

An article from the Canfield Weekly Herald, 27 July 1865 mentions Jabez.

AN OLD SETTLER

Old father Jabez Hitchcock of Medina, Ohio, for 20 years a resident of Canfield, is now spending a few weeks here visiting relatives and friends. He is now 84 years old, and apparently as hale and hardy as 40 years ago. He originally came from Litchfield County, Connecticutt during the early settlement of Canfield. (Taken from the handwritten books of the Henry R. Baldwin Genealogical Records, v. 27, page 43)

The 1870 Palmyra Township, Portage County, Ohio census records have Jabez living with a family named Gilbert. He is a farmer, is 88 years old and was born in Connecticutt. Moses Gilbert is 31, Aaron is 33, Phoebe is 36, Eunice is 38, Margaret is 72 and Christina is 14. Margaret is a tailoress, and Aaron and Moses are farmers. Margaret was born in Vermont and all of the other Gilberts were born in Ohio. Real estate is worth $5,000 and personal property, $600.
Living two families down the road are Hela H. Gilbert, 72, and his wife Tirza, 60. He was born in Connecticutt and she in Ohio. Real estate is worth $7720 and personal property $1500.
Cemetery Records for Palmyra Township, Palmyra West Cemetery, Portage County, Ohio state that Jabez died 22 June 1875. He was 93 years old and a Veteren of the War of 1812.

The INDEX to the GRAVE RECORDS of SERVICEMEN of the WAR OF 1812 State of Ohio, complied by the Ohio Society United States Daughters of 1812, Edited by Phyllis Brown Miller, compiled 1988, page 100, states, "HITCHCOCK, Jabez; b. 1782; d. 1875; bur. Palmyra, Port. Co., OH; Co. Hist.; emblem on grave; (1943)."

In an email regatding Jabez Hitchcock/Lovinia on Sun, 06 Jan 2002 at 18:29:51, Jennifer Hutchinson wrote: "Ruth Anna and Caroline (Hitchock) married brothers. Ruth Anna married Ezra J Hunt on 28 Jan 1836 in Trumbull County, Ohio. Caroline A. married Seymour M Hunt on 30 August 1832 in Trumbull County, Ohio.
Caroline's death notice reads: "Hunt, Caroline, w. of Seymour M., dau. of Jabez and Lovina Hitchcock, of Medina, d. March 23, 1852 in Hartsgrove, ae 46th yr."
I don't yet have definite proof that Ruth is the daughter of Jabez and Lovinia yet, but she did name one son Jabez and a daughter Caroline.
I also am running into the name Judson Vantile Hitchcock in the same area at the same time that may be a brother to Caroline and Ruth. Ruth also named a son Judson.
Lots of coincidences, but no proof yet.
I am a descendant of Ruth and Ezra. I am sending a copy of the family group sheet for them I have been able to compile. The information came from a typescript of their family Bible information. Their daughte, Susan Maria Hunt is my great great grandmother. "

A story I have written by my grandmother in 1976

THE SOURCE OF THE LINEN TOW THREAD: THIS THREAD IS 120 YEARS OLD

Crocheted into doilies by Clara Morrison Rhodes — from 1940 1974

Jabez Hitchcock Sr., and his wife came from Holland. His son, Vantile
Hitchcock, was my mother's grandfather. He had four daughters; Dorcas,
Hattie, Julia, and Macklin. His daughter Dorcas married Isaac Justice, a
Judge in Youngstown, Ohio. To this union was born Flora Justice Mancil and
my mother, Lilla Helen Justice Morrison.

When Jabez Hitchcock Sr. and his wife came from Holland they settled in
Pennsylvania. The raised flax, made their own thread, wove it into cloth,
from which they made their clothing — you could not buy manufactured clothing
in those days.

First they made the 'tow', then spun it into thread on the spinning wheel or
spindle; this was a two year process. In 1955 the process was shortened to
ten days. Then they wove it into cloth. The two I have, and the thread and
piece of cloth, was made by these people, my Great-Great Grandfather and
Grandmother. It was given by Grandpa Isaac Justice to sister Alizia,
mother's aunt, then to mother when she went back to Youngstown, Ohio, at the
time her father died in 1903. My mother had it thirty six years, then it was
given to me in 1939 when mother passed away.

Jabez Jr., brother of Vantile Hitchcock, was the father of George, Herman,
Wilber, Rebecca, Jane and Clara. Clara married Homer Warner, and became the
grandmother of my Aunt Clara, Aunt Nettie, Uncle Frank and Uncle Charley.

Grandpa Justice's second wife was their mother, and they were my mother's
half-sisters and brothers. She was the woman he married after the death of my
mother's mother,Dorcas, who died by falling down the cellar stairs, while
pregnant. Mother was seven years old at that time. John Justice, a cousin
