I have no proof that Mary Smith married to Philip Rauscholb, Andrew Smith married to Elizabeth Bien, all buried at St. Pauls Lutheran Church Cemetery in Hopewell Twp. Perry Co. OH except the following statement found in a tree titled "The Family 12-05" posted at rootsweb by Linda Wilkes:

"JOHN PETER HETRICK was christened on 3 July 1774 at Himmel's Lutheran Church, Rebuck, Washington Twp., Northumberland Co., and died 19 Feb. 1847 in Perry Co., Ohio. in 1800-1801. Maria Elizabeth Smith's father, Peter Smith was a 1765 emigrant from Germany. He and his wife, Elizabeth, resided in Washington Twp., Northumberland Co., where they raised a family of six children including Maria Elizabeth and her twin brother Andrew. Andrew married Elizabeth Bien (or Bean), daughter of Paul and Magdalene Bien and Peter, who married Maria Elizabeth Hetrick, a sister of John Peter. The Peter Hetricks, the Andrew Smiths, the Paul Biens, and the Philip Rousculps are all buried in the St. Paul Cemetery south of Glenford on SR 757 (near the former St. Paul Reformed Church) in Hopewell Twp., Perry Co., Ohio, where all four families lived (owned land). Peter and Maria Elizabeth (Smith) Hetrick are said to have migrated to Ohio in 1804 and were definitely there by 1806 when Peter Hedrick, already a resident of Fairfield Co., Ohio, was granted land through the Chillicothe Land Office. Peter received a deed dated 10 Apr 1810 for land in the SE1/4 of Sect. 18, Twp. 17, Range 16 which is now situated in Hopewell Twp., Perry Co., Ohio. Peter's name is included with the charter members of the (union) Lutheran & Reformed Zion Church, southeast of Thornville (Thorn Twp., Perry Co., Ohio), founded in 1806. He also was a charter member of Smith's, later the St. Paul Lutheran Church, located south of Glenford in Hopewell Twp. In later years the Hetricks were members of the Reformed church, The name Peter Hedrick appears on the 1819 Tax Record for Perry 50. The next mention of him is in the 1820 Federal Census.
Peter Hetrick made his living as a farmer and a blacksmith.

Maria Elizabeth Smith & Andrew Smith are found in the records of Himmels Church with the same birth date, 8 Mar 1781.

Marriage Notes for Peter SMITH and Maria BROSIUS:
Source: E-mails from Larry Smith, a descendant of Peter Smith & Maria Elisabeth Brosius:
Marriage source is based on an old bio of Sebastian Brosius as researched by Albert J. Hetrick and verified by Martha H. Breene. Albert Hetrick, living in Jefferson County, Pennsylvania, did a lot of leg work in the Northumberland, Berks County area. the old bio of Sebastian was mentioned in his notes, but no bio came with it. Lost or just saw the bio and took down the notes. Maybe some day it will come up for air. If it wasn't lost in a fire.

Yost Hollebush, of Philadelphia Co. was a member of the 2nd Class, 4th Battalion, 6th Company under Captain Michael Gaugler. He was listed as "Inactive Duty", which indicates that the soldier did not necessarily see active duty. Associators were volunteers who comprised the Military Association, a civilian reserve designed to repel any invasion of Pennsylvania until the collapse of the Association in the winter of 1776-1777. Remarks made at the Court of Appeals 1st-4th classes, 4th battalion, begun Oct 1781 state that he "Pleads that he lost the use of his one hand, excused for this present tour".

(death certificate for son-in-law Isaac Shunk states that he is also buried in the German Reformed Churchyard located at Race St. below 4th St.)

In addition to the schools, the congregation maintained a cemetery on the northeast corner of Franklin Square (bounded by 8th and 7th streets and Race and Vine streets) from 1741 until 1835, when the city reclaimed the land for use as a park. At that time, some of the bodies were moved to a new graveyard at 16th and Cherry streets, while the gravestones for others were laid flat and covered over. The congregation later replaced the Cherry Street graveyard with a lot in West Laurel Hill Cemetery, which it purchased with the help of money awarded by the city.

19 May 1830 Jacob Kauffman land sold $271.90
24 Oct 1832 Ditto 25.80
7 Apr 1834 Daniel Levan 125.00
Account runs through 10 Dec 1840 when Caleb Harrison made payments for Amanda Kline.

8 Jan 1844 - auditors appointed to audit the account of Caleb Harrison, executor of Jacob Maurer.

9 Jan 1844 - Accountant is charged with sums received by the account of Peter Kline, one of the administrators of Henry S. Kline deceased, who was the father of said Wards. Balance to be divided among 4 children. The following testimony was given:

Peter Kline said: I paid over to Jacob Maurer from the Estate of Henry S. Kline between $900 and $1000. I think about $925. I paid the money to Henry Betz, Esq. about $900. The deed for the property was given to Leavenworth and wife. It was thought at the time that this amount was due the Estate of Henry S. Kline. A debt or claim was afterwards prepared against the Estate, and the property, the house in Reading was resold, the proceeds of the sale went to pay the debts of Kline. Mr. Leavenworth resold the property. I never paid any other money to Mr. Maurer. I never received any money back from Mr. Betz. I got the money from the Estate of Henry S. Kline. I never got a dollar from the resale of the property. Mr. Maurer and Mr. Levan obtained an act of the Legislature authorizing them to sell certain Real Estate of Kline and sold it.

William C. Leavenworth said: I was one of the Administrators of Henry S. Kline. I filed no account and never collected anything. I gave advice relative to the Estate. Mr. Maurer requested me to purchase a property for his daughter the widow of Kline. I attended the sale and purchased the property for $900 and some dollars. I do not recollect exactly how much. I do not recollect whether the deed was made to me. I think I made a deed to Sarah Kline and left it with Henry Betz as an ?? to be delivered up in case there was sufficient money left from the Estate of Henry S. Kline. I was present when Peter Kline paid the money to Henry Betz. then a debt came against the Estate. H.S. Kline had been the administrator da bonis ?? of Ludwig Weiman deceased. Mr. Maurer afterwards purchased the property for $600 and some odd dollars. I afterwards paid Mr. Maurer on a judgement against me $291. Maurer retained the Balance of the purchase money.

9 Apr 1844 - Balance in the hands of the Executor $358.81 but as there are still claims against the Estate, it would be improper to make a distribution at this time.

27 Jul 1844 - Exception filed: The auditor erred in charging the estate of Jacob Maurer with the sum of $394.49, a balance due to Peter Kline, which was ought to have been paid by the guardian.

Stout, and Elizabeth wife of Frederick R. Fritz.
That the one story house and lot of ground devised to said heirs is situate on the South side of Penn Street between Ninth and Tenth Streets. Request to value and partition said house & lot of ground. Appraisal refused by the heirs, they requested the court to sell the property & distribute the proceeds.

Note: The male over 45 could be Johannes' father Henry, as his mother Magdalena was not mentioned in Henry's will in 1822 and could possibly have died prior to 1810.

Falkner Swamp church records list the father of the 6 children, Maria, James, William, Susanna, Peter & Sarah as Henrich Hollebush, mother Salome all on one page. A separate entry shows only the baptism of Susanna, born Apr 4, 1803; the same date listed with the family of 4 children, but her parents are Johannes & Sally Hollebush. The ages of the 4 children match the 4 children of John Hollowbush in Limerick Twp. Montgomery Co. PA in 1810; so it is assumed that these 4 children belong to John & Sarah Cuntz.

Written: 19 Jan 1843
Proved: 20 Feb 1844

In the Name of God Amen, I Henry Hollobush Senior of the township of Frederick in the County of Montgomery and state of Pennsylvania, being weak in body but of sound mind memory and understanding and considering the uncertainty of this transitory life do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following to wit:

First, I commend my soul into the hands of God who gave it and my body to the earth from whence it came and as to such worldly estate as it hath pleased God to intrust me with I dispose of the same as follows:

First - I direct that all my just debts and funeral expenses be paid as soon after my decease as possible out of the first moneys that shall come into the hands of my hereinafter named executors from any portion of my estate real or personal. Also I direct that a fair valuation or appraisment be made according to law of All my estate by two competent and impartial neighbors.

Also my said wife shall have fire wood as much as she wants annually cut and hauled home and chopped fine ready to be burnt in the stove. Also my wife shall have a part of the garden where she shall chose and further it is my will that my said wife shall have the new brick house attached to the old house in which we now reside and the cellar thereunder for her own use, as long as she remains my widow, but immediately after her decease or marriage the said house shall be and belong to the person or persons who shall then own the old house and farm in which the said house is located.

And further it is my will and I do hereby order and direct that my said wife shall have the interest of four thousand dollars annually during her natural life or as long as she remains my widow, and no longer.

And further it is my will and I do hereby order and direct that all my real and personal estate not otherwise disposed of in this my will shall be sold by my hereinafter named executors at public sale as soon as conveniently can be done after my decease and all the monies arising therefrom after deducting the said sum of four thousand dollars for the use of my said wife as aforesaid, the remainder shall be equally divided amongst my five children, share and share alike, and immediately after the decease or marriage of my said wife the said four thousand dollars shall also be equally divided amoungst my five children if they shall survive me and if not each ones share as herein bequeathed shall descend to each one's legal heirs or representatives, share and share alike.

Jacob Hollowbush, son of Jost, was born 1774 in Frederick Twp. and died 15 Oct 1854 in Cottage Grove Twp. Dane, WI; buried in Hope Lutheral Church Cemetery. He married Mary Hinkle (no other info on her) and then married Anna Maria (Polly) Hock. Attempts to contact Jan Walker have been unsucessful. Further research in WI disproves this information.

Estate of Jacob Hollabush 1854:
20 Oct 1854 - Confirms date of death 15 Oct 1854 and 4 children:
William, deceased with 3 minor heirs - Maria, Frederick, Emily
George
Mary Longfield
Sarah Longfield

The most important piece to learn from this estate, is that, in my mind, that's the proof that Jacob Hollabush of Dane Co. WI is NOT the son of Jost. Here's why --

In Jost's will, written in 1823, he mentions his son Jacob, and Jacob's two sons Joseph & Jacob. He does not mention William, George, or Samuel --  all born before 1823 to Jacob Hollabush & Anna Maria Hake in York Co. Jacob of Dane Co. WI does not have a son Jacob, nor a son Joseph.

Jost moved his family to the city of Philadelphia between 1790-1800. If you look at city directories for Philadelphia you see the following:
1807 - Hollobush, Jacob - plasterer, Rose Alley
Hollobush, Youst, innkeeper, New above Third

1808 - Hollobush, Jacob - plasterer, Rose alley
Hollobush, Youst, innkeeper, New above Third

1810 - Hollobush, Daniel - plasterer, Laurence
Hollobush, Jacob - plasterer, St. Tammany
Hollobush, Joseph, late innkeeper 98 New   (in this case, I think 'late' means former, so Maybe Jost had retired from the innkeeper business by 1810)

1816 - Hollobush, Mary - shopkeeper Kunkel n. Tammany
Hollobush & Laskey - merchant 159 north Third
Hollowbush, Henry - merchant 159 north Third   (Jost's son Henry married Henreitta Laskey -- this is more than likely him)
Hollowbush, Henry - plasterer 98 New
Hollowbush, Joseph - innkeeper 100 New

1818 - Hollobush & Laskey - merchants, 159 North 3rd.
Hollobush, Henry - merchant, 159 north 3d.
Hollowbush, John - tavern keeper, 100 New
Hollowbush, Youst - gentleman, 98 New
Hollowbush, M - shopkeeper, Kunckel near Tammany
Hollerbush, Jacob - merchant, north 3rd.

I'm not sure what happened to Jacob in 1816. But I feel certain that all the Jacobs listed are the son of Jost. And Jacob is still in Philadelphia in 1818, while Jacob of Dane Co. WI was in York Co. with 3 children born by then.  I think this shows that we're dealing with 2 Jacob Hollowbushes.

I have no proof that Mary Smith married Philip Rauscholb, both buried at St. Pauls Lutheran Church Cemetery in Hopewell Twp. Perry Co. OH except the following statement found in a tree titled "The Family 12-05" posted at rootsweb by Linda Wilkes:

"JOHN PETER HETRICK was christened on 3 July 1774 at Himmel's Lutheran Church, Rebuck, Washington Twp., Northumberland Co., and died 19 Feb. 1847 in Perry Co., Ohio. 1800-1801 in Maria Elizabeth Smith's father, Peter Smith was a 1765 emigrant from Germany. He and his wife, Elizabeth, resided in Washington Twp., Northumberland Co., where they raised a family of six children including Maria Elizabeth and her twin brother Andrew. Andrew married Elizabeth Bien (or Bean), daughter of Paul and Magdalene Bien and Peter, who married Maria Elizabeth Hetrick, a sister of John Peter. The Peter Hetricks, the Andrew Smiths, the Paul Biens, and the Philip Rousculps are all buried in the St. Paul Cemetery south of Glenford on SR 757 (near the former St. Paul Reformed Church) in Hopewell Twp., Perry Co., Ohio, where all four families lived (owned land). Peter and Maria Elizabeth (Smith) Hetrick are said to have migrated to Ohio in 1804 and were definitely there by 1806 when Peter Hedrick, already a resident of Fairfield Co., Ohio, was granted land through the Chillicothe Land Office. Peter received a deed dated 10 Apr 1810 for land in the SE1/4 of Sect. 18, Twp. 17, Range 16 which is now situated in Hopewell Twp., Perry Co., Ohio. Peter's name is included with the charter members of the (union) Lutheran & Reformed Zion Church, southeast of Thornville (Thorn Twp., Perry Co., Ohio), founded in 1806. He also was a charter member of Smith's, later the St. Paul Lutheran Church, located south of Glenford in Hopewell Twp. In later years the Hetricks were members of the Reformed church, The name Peter Hedrick appears on the 1819 Tax Record for Perry 50. The next mention of him is in the 1820 Federal Census.
Peter Hetrick made his living as a farmer and a blacksmith.

It is therefore believed that he was intended by the Testator as one of the Devisees, the mistake being merely in the Christian name of his son Jacob’s son.

Estate of Catherine Hollenbush of Oley Twp. 1822:
8 Nov 1822 - "To the honorable the Judges of the Orphans Court of Berks County -
The petition of Samuel Hollebush brother to Daniel Hollebush
That his said Brother has left this neighborhood leaving with his mother two children, to wit: Samuel and Abraham, who are under fourteen years of age, that the said children are entitled to some estate from the part of their Mother Catherine Hollenbush, who is dead, that they have no guardians to take care of their estate. Your Petitioner therefore prays your honor to appoint some fit person as their guardian." Abraham Peters appointed guardian.

8 Nov 1822 - The Petition of Joseph [and Daniel] Hollenbush
Estate of Catherine Hollowbush
Kindly showeth that he[they] is[are] a minor[s] above the age of fourteen years of age, that his father Daniel Hollebush has left these parts for about 7 years. That he has some estate to get on the part of his deceased mother Catharine Hollebush. He therefore prays your honor to admit him to make a choice of a guardian. Abraham Peters chosen as guardian.

Source: York Co. Deed Book 3F, pg 511:
10 May 1822 - Daniel Hollowubsh of Conewago Twp. & Elisabeth his wife convey to Michael Fidrow, stiller, of Newbury Twp. 13 acres in Newbury Twp. for $125. It being part of a larger tract of land originally surveyed in pursuance of an application #689 & by sundry conveyances became vested in Daniel Holobush by indenture intended to be record.

Evidence points to the fact that the Daniel Hollowbush that appears in York Co. in 1816 is in fact the son of Christian & Elizabeth Huffnagel. Here are my reasons:

1)  Daniel Hillebish disappears from Berks Co.  in 1815. The sheriff sells his land on 7 Aug 1815. (In almost all Berks Co. records the name is either Hollenbush, or Hollowbush)

2)  Daniel Hollowbush married Elizabeth Bruner on 4 Dec 1816 in York Co.

3)  Daniel Hollowbush & Elizabeth baptize the following children at Quickel's Reformed in Conewago Twp. York Co.:
- Johannes      born 17 Apr 1819         Sponsor: Johannes Bruner
- Elisabetha     born 8 Jun 1821          Sponsor: A. Maria Bruner
- Anna Maria    born 12 Nov 1822        Sponsor:  Geroge Weyher
- Catharina       born 16 Jul 1828         No sponsor listed
Jacob Hollowbush & Maria also baptized 3 children at Quickel's. It would have been nice if Jacob & Daniel sponsored each other's children, but they didn't.

For consistency sake, the name was most commonly spelled Hollerbush in York Co. records, so that is the spelling used for the children of Daniel & Elisabeth Brunner.

4)  Daniel Hollowbush of Conewago Twp. dies in 1837 and in his will specifically mentions "the balance of my estate to be equally divided to and amongst my three children of my second wife: John Hollowbush, Elizabeth, and Polly Hollowbush." (Polly is a nickname for Mary or Maria) Which implies he has a first wife somewhere, and had children by this first wife.

5)  When Catharine Hollowbush, 1st wife of Daniel, dies in 1822 in Berks Co., her estate file includes a statement by Samuel Hollowbush that shows she left 2 minor children under 14 (Samuel & Abraham) & 2 over 14 (Joseph & Daniel): see text of estate file above.

So are these the unnamed children of the first wife that got left out of Daniel's will?  That's my theory.

6)  York Co. tax lists & deeds show that at one point, both Daniel & Jacob Hollowbush owned the same piece of land in Newberry Twp. York Co.  This evidence supports the premise that they are brothers.

7)  Christian Hülpüsch & Elizabeth Huffnagel had 10 children. I can account for 7 of them ... that is all except Daniel, Jacob & Elizabeth.

So.... it's my unofficial theory, that Daniel & Jacob moved to York Co.

The said Samuel is also to have three horses and harness after my decease, should I then have as many, One Cow, waggan, Plows and other farming utensils I may own at the time of my decease, and also all the hay, straw and fodder, my household furniture shall be sold at public vendue, my said son Samuel is not permitted to make any claim against my estate, for any work or services rendered to me in my lifetime.

Obituary of Governor Francis R. Shunk
The Pennsylvanian has an interesting account of the funeral solemnities in honor of the late Gov. Shunk, on Saturday and Sunday. There were appropriate religious exercises at his residence in Harrisburgh on Saturday, and an immense funeral procession -- such as had never before been witnessed in that city. The body, a large train of mourners and friend, and a numerous committee of both parties, were conveyed by railroad to Philadelphia, where it was placed in charge of his only surviving brother Isaac Shunk, Esq. On Sunday there were religious ceremonies at Philadelphia. "The funeral procession was over one and a half miles in length, and numbered one hundred and eighty-seven carriages. Both sides of the route were lined with horsemen and citizens on foot. Upon arriving at the Trappe, we were met by a very large crowd.... Rev. Mr. Miller, pastor of the Lutheran congregation of the Trappe, stated that Gov. Shunk was born on the 7th of August, 1778, near the church yard.

Smith Esq. his attorney and files his petition herein, showing the condition of the estate and complaining of the insufficiency of the property to pay the debts and demands outstanding against the same and the court do declare their opinion that the estate of the said deceased is probably insolvent. It is therefore considered that notice of the filing and pendency of the said complaint be made known to the Creditors of the said decedent by publication of notice for four successive weeks in the Salem News, a newspaper printed at Salem in this State, and that they be notified that unless they notify the said administrator of the existence and extent of their claims, with their proper description, previous to the final distribution of the assets of the estate of the said decedent such claims will be postponed in favor of the more diligent creditors. And in his memorial, supported by his affidavit said administrator represents that he verily believes that Nicholas Burge one of the heirs of said testator made defendant thereto is not a resident of this State. Whereupon it is ordered by the Court that Notice of the pendency of his Petition be made known to the said Nicholas Burge, and publication of notice for four weeks in the aforesaid paper and that summons be issued against the other defendants directed to the Counties in which the Petitioner states they live, return all at the next Term of this Court, and this Cause is continued.
