                    Spring 2003 — A Busy Time for MAGS !
     The calendar has been flipped to January and our thoughts turn towards spring. Included
with this issue of Der Kurier is the registration brochure for the spring meeting. It will be held
on 26 April at Blob’s Park.
     Marianne S. Wokeck, Associate Professor of History at Indiana University, will be giving
three presentations on topics of interest to many family historians whose German ancestors
came to the Mid-Atlantic region during the 1700s. Many Germans when they arrived in
Philadelphia, New York, or Baltimore were sold into servitude, but information on servitude is
very difficult to find. Professor Wokeck in her first presentation will provide attendees with
some interesting insights into this rather difficult topic.
     MAGS member and former President Cathryn S. Dippo will give the second presentation.
Accompanying the Germans who immigrated to this region in the eighteenth-century were
many Huguenots—folks who may have left France and settled in Germany for one or two
generations before they relocated here. This may be the first time anyone has spoken at a
MAGS meeting on this rather important group of eighteenth-century immigrants.
     In compiling information for her book Trade in Strangers, Dr. Wokeck developed very
interesting material that appears in the appendix. In the two presentations Marianne is giving
during the afternoon she will explore some of that data—information that may prove useful in
gaining additional insights into the lives of our eighteenth-century German ancestors.
     The Mid-Atlantic Germanic Society will be a participating society at this year’s NGS
Annual Conference to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The program has received a lot of
favorable comment and the early indicators suggest the NGS 100th Anniversary conference
will be well attended.
     Trudy Schenk, the speaker at the fall 2000 MAGS meeting, will be the featured lecturer at
the two MAGS events in Pittsburgh. On Friday, May 30, MAGS will sponsor a lunch. The title
of Trudy’s presentation is “Humorous Anecdotes Found in Old German Records and my
Experiences While Doing Research Abroad.” Trudy will be giving two presentations on
Saturday May 31.The afternoon lecture titled “Research in Germany With Emphasis on
Primary Records” is a MAGS sponsored event.
     MAGS will also have a booth in the exhibit hall. If you are planning on attending the NGS
Conference in Pittsburgh, please offer to help with the booth.

        Gail Komar, past Treasurer of MAGS, now lives in Jefferson County, Ohio and is co-
chairing a project for the Jefferson County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society.
        In connection with Ohio’s Bicentennial, the Jefferson County Chapter has an ongoing
project to identify, abstract, restore, and preserve all cemeteries in the county. Readers of Der
Kurier can help. If your ancestors came through Jefferson County, they seek Bible records of early
settlers who died and were buried in Jefferson County, the burial location if known, and any
information on family or private cemeteries that may now have disappeared. Jefferson County has
seen much coal strip mining since the 1920’s especially on farmland causing loss of some family
cemeteries. If you can help, please contact:

FRAKTUR FORUM                                                                 by Corinne Earnest

                                    GUNDER ON FRAKTUR

Clifford Ginter asked about the name Günter/Gunther/Ginder/Kinter on fraktur. I found only a
handful of fraktur having that name, and they were made for families scattered from Pennsylvania
to Ohio and Virginia. Clifford Ginter is particularly interested in this name in York County,
Pennsylvania. Although not fraktur, Lewis Miller (1796-1882), a folk artist from York sketched
scenes of everyday life in York when he was a young man. The York County Heritage Trust
published his drawings in 1966 in a book called Lewis Miller: Sketches and Chronicles. On page 36
of that book, Miller pictured a number of men sliding on ice. The drawing was dated 1823. Among
the men sliding on ice was John GENTHER. The picture is too small to make out details about
John GENTHER, but if Miller labeled the figures accurately, GENTHER appears to have had a
hunched back. Researchers having ancestors in York during the mid-nineteenth century should be
aware of Lewis Miller drawings, for he presented rare opportunities to see caricatures of their
ancestors. Technically, Miller’s drawings are not fraktur, although Miller did make taufscheins (birth
and baptism certificates), which are the most common type of fraktur. For readers interested in
nineteenth century history of York County, Lewis Miller’s drawings present a charming vignette of
day-to-day life. The book of Miller drawings is available in the York County Heritage Trust museum
shop at 250 East Market Street, York, PA 17403.

Regarding taufscheins, an example was made for Johannes SCHMELZER, son of Conrad and
Margaretha (KINTER) SCHMELZER. Johannes was born August 21, 1799 at about eleven o’clock
at night. He was baptized October [?] 6 by Pastor BASS [probably BOOS]. Johannes KINTER and
Maria BECK were sponsors. Although Johannes was born in Oley Township, Berks County, his
baptism was recorded on a form that was printed in Hanover, York County. Thus, the family may
have moved to York County when they had this certificate filled out.

In the July 1999 issue of Wythe County Historical Review, MAGS’s historian, Beverly Repass
Hoch, wrote an article called “Fraktur: Birth and Baptismal Records of the Early Germans.” A
taufschein listed by Hoch mentions the name, GÜNTHER. The taufschein was made for
Margaretha ETTER, daughter of Peter and Elisabeth (DAÜTISS) ETTER. Margaretha was born
July 18, 1780, probably in Wythe County, Virginia. No information concerning her baptism is given
other than to say the sponsors were Peter and Margaretha GÜNTHER.

A fraktur in a private collection was made for David SCHWEIHART, son of Friedrich and Salome
(KINDER) SCHWEIHART. David was born in Dover Township, Tuscarawas County, Ohio on
November 18, 1812. David was baptized by Johannes REINHART (no date given), and his parents
were sponsors.

As customary, I am forwarding Clifford Ginter additional references to fraktur having his surname. If
you have names you wish me to research on fraktur, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to
Corinne Earnest, MAGS Publications Chair, P.O. Box 1007, East Berlin, PA 17316.

In 1777 John purchased Teboe’s Fort in Fort Valley in Shenandoah County, Virginia, and the
remaining seven of their children were born there. That property remained in the family until 1997,
when it was sold at auction, due to the fact that the present owner had died and no one in the
family was able to purchase or maintain it.

The spelling of the name Köller was changed first to Kullers, and then to Cullers after the move to
Virginia. John’s brother, Michael, who remained in Frederick County, MD, continued to use the
name Köller until about 1800, when the spelling was changed to Culler.

Of John and Mary’s eight children, three daughters, Maria Magdalena, Katherine and Mary,
married and moved to Ohio. Daughter Elizabeth married and moved to Tennessee. Son Jacob,
who lived in Virginia at the time of the division of the state into Virginia and West Virginia, ended up
in Hardy County, WV, where he remained until his death. John Randolph moved first to Missouri,
and then to Texas, where he died. Henry Samuel and Daniel remained in Shenandoah County.

From seven of those eight children there were 61 known grandchildren. I know nothing of the
family of Mary, who married John Ramsberger in Shenandoah County on August 12, 1801. I
believe they moved to Ohio in the 1820's but have no further information on that line.

Approximately 40 years of research by Lewis E. Martin, his daughter, Marie Martin Murphy and
myself, has resulted in the finding of more then 8,100 direct descendants of John and Mary
Cullers, along with more than 5,100 spouses, and there are certainly more to be found. Anyone
with more information on this family may feel free to contact me at any time. [See box above for
contact information.]
