Johannes Zopp

Name Johann ZOPP found in -

Census Index, Colonial America, 1607-1789 - CD 310.

Index, Philadelphia, PA Census for 1764 found on LDS Oak CD #020.

Passenger & Immigration Index 1983 Supplement for Philadelphia, PA Year 1764 by William Filby, Ref 1804 page 462. This Index refers to a book also by William Henry Egle: "Names of Foreigners Who Took The Oath of Allegiance", page 462.

List of Foreigners Imported in the Ship Brittania, Capt. Thomas Arnot, from Rotterdam to Philadelphia. Qualified September 29, 1764.

Thirty Thousand Names of Immigrants in Pennsylvania, 1727 - 1776" by Israel Daniel Rupp on page 359, paragraph 240) Sept 26, 1764, Ship Brittania, Thomas Arnot, Captain, from Rotterdam to Philadelphia, PA. - 260 passengers.

Other entries may be typographical errors? Name appears as Johannes Zepp or Johannes Sim. Zepp. There are two Zepp spellings listed in the 1790 & 1800 Census for Montgomery Co. Pennsylvania; Jacob w/ wife, 2 sons and 1 daughter; John w/ wife, no children, Philip w/wife, 2 sons and 2 daughters. And in 1754 Philadelphia Co. PA; Phillip w/wife. Is the John Zepp in 1790 Montgomery Co. PA Census is the Johannes who arrived in 1764. There continued to be many Zepp's living in both PA and MD thru 1880.

Still need to look at an actual passenger ship's log to see name spelling and if he had wife and children.

This report assumes Johannes as direct ancestor. Other "childrens names" assume those found in later census'.

Hi: I am not researching any of your surnames but thought maybe some of the burials in Mt Carmel Cem may be a part of your family. You have some of the most difficult letters to transcribe from the old handwriting as you will see in the records below. (The small 'o' in most records was written so that the line came off the top and back down to the line and most often taken for an 'a'.) Even though they are all buried in the same lot you will find three different spellings. The unmarried Katherine, born in 1826 is in the right time period. Included in the list are all those in the same lot with different names than you have on your list. Some of the very young chn who never appear on census lists can give very good clues in their birth or death records. Hope some of this is helpful. Good luck-Pauline

Jacob Zopp

Jacob's name was taken from the death certificate of his son, Benjamin R.. Abigail, Ben's wife, supplied this information for the certificate. In late census records, Benjamin says his father was born in Maryland and his mother born in Ireland.

Name found! "Pennsylvania German Church Records, From the Pennsylvania German Society Proceedings and Addresses, Births, Baptisms, Marriages, Burials, Etc." Volume III, page 130 "Church records of the Old Goshenhoppen Reformed Congregation, Upper Sulford Township, Montgomery County, PA, 1764 - 1833, Baptisms 1762 - 1833. ; Jacob Zoepp & Elizabeth Ohl witnesses to the baptism of Johann Jacob Strohman, born 8/30/1780, father is Henrich Strohman. Also on this page; Jacob Zoepp & Anna Maria Schneider witnesses to the baptism of Jacob Eckli born 8/1/1781, baptised 8/26/1781, parents were Joseph & Dorothea Eckli. Both baptisms were performed by Johann Wilhelm Ingold the local pastor. NOTE: Anna Maria Schneider was 19 1/2 years old when she and her brother, Valentin Schneider, age 17 1/2 received confirmation on 3/29/1771, in the "Great Swamp", they being from the Old Goshenhoppen Congregation.

3/22/2000;

The Old Goshenhoppen Church is located on Church Rd. in Upper Salford Township, Woxall, Pa. If you can find Harleysville, Pa on a map find Rt 63 which runs right through Harleysville. Continue on Rt 63 (Sumneytown Pike)until you see Old Sumneytown Pike on the left side of the road.

Following that road until you come upon an itersection with Burton Rd & Skippack Rd turn left. Follow Skippack Rd for a very short distance and turn right onto Church Rd. The Church & Graveyard are on the left (the parking lot is on the right). Jon Rahn <jrahn@icdc.com>

Interesting note here; Another passenger traveling on the ship "Brittania" with Johannes Zopp is Adolph Carl Schneider. There is LDS family history information that Anna Maria Schneider is the daughter of Adolph Carl Schneider."

4/27/2001

Today I researched a map of Montgomery Co., PA. I found the town of Woxall looking for the Old Goshenhoppen Church on Church Rd. Nearby (north) I found Zepp Road. Further searches of Mongomery County records produced a burial record for Anna Maria and Jacob Zepp (1855) in the old church graveyard. The baptism records above must have been just prior to the marriage of Anna Maria Schneider and Jacob Zepp.

Well AL..... you certainly add to an interesting Monday back at work....

First off you are the second person to find my Posts to this Baltimore City page in two weeks... a page so remote now that it is unlinked from every other Rootsweb/genweb connecting page... so congrats for some good sleuthing.... 8-)

Second off, the Zopps/Zopp surname must be a pretty rare one in Baltimore in those days... as Margaret was the only one I had been able to find to date, though I have not pursued this surname with as much vigor as other ones... so I may have missed some somewhere...

My interest in Margaret was she was the first wife of Benjamin Charles.. a man who had at least two, maybe three wives, the second being Eleanor Evans, the third Martha Rhule of York Co., PA may actually be the wife of Benjamin's son Benjamin F. Charles.. but I have nothing to say which Benjamin she married....

I also have no record of death for Margaret, though I do for Eleanor Evans.....Benjamin's second wife....

I know that Benjamin and Margaret were married in the Baltimore Station of the United Methodist-Episcopal Church.... which was located on Light Street and Wine Alley.... there were actually three churches for this one location... the first proved too small and was replaced eventually by a larger one which burned to the ground almost as soon as it was opened.. the third which was the burned church's replacement was torn down in late 1869 to make way for the City's extending German street which also took out Wine Alley as well...

Benjamin Charles was a son of Christopher Charles and Elizabeth Martin who were married in 1808 at St. Paul's P-E Parish church on Liberty Rd in Baltimore...Christopher and wife and family settled on Happy Alley over by Pratt and Gough streets in Fells Point... they were there by 1814... as were their friends John Joaeph Huyghe and wife Ann Hestor who also were married in 1808 at St. Paul's... John Joseph's son Joseph Ald Hayghe Sr. married Christopher's daughter Elizabeth Charles.. the sister of Benjamin who first married Margaret Zopps....

The way I fit in is that John Joseph Huyghe's son the Rev. John L. Hayghe (Protestant-Methodist) a carpenter by trade, and Joseph Ald Hayghe's younger brother, was my own great great grandfather....

Tell me do you know anything more on the two Zopp's you mentioned...?? like if they by chance belonged to St. Paul's ?? where was the marriage ?? what church and religion ??

Sounds to me like we are dealing perhaps with one small family only and two generations of it... and the family doesn't seem to leave much of a trail..... Joe jsla@loc.gov Washington, DC...... Arlington, VA (home)..

Benjamin R. Zopp

James Preston Zopp has a medal enscribed "Ben Zopp - for shooting at the mark" dated 1824. No idea if it was Greenbrier or Baltimore. Stonewall Jackson, Benjamin's youngest son was quoted "He moved from Baltimore, MD around 1825 and married in 1850. He was a harsh, cruel man and insanely jealous of his gay, young wife. As long as he felt that she was frightened of him, he assured himself that he had her completely under his control. She soon learned to pretend great fear and complete subjection. Then when he was sound asleep, and he was a notoriously sound sleeper, she would slip out and have a gala time with other young people in the community. Every one connived with her to keep this secret from her husband and according to the youngest son(Stonewall), whom was interviewed, the cruel father never found out about it."

1850 Census, Greenbrier Co., (W)VA, (page 314, LDS film# 444937; age 46 (1804), single, born in Maryland, property worth $800.00, does not read or write english. 1860 Census, Greenbrier Co., (W)VA (pg 449, LDS film # 0805348), age 56(1804), born MD, farmer with property value of $1800.00. 1870 Census, Greenbrier Co., WV, res # 145, age 67(1803), farmer, b. MD, farm valued at $840, $240 in personal property. 1880 Census, Meadow Bluff Dist., Greenbrier Co., WV, res# 123, age 78 (1802), b. Maryland, father born in Maryland, mother born in Ireland.

I have found a LDS-transcription of a Will for a Joseph Crane filed in Greenbrier Co. VA in 1839. Listing his wife and seven children, by name, as beneficiaries of his property. There is reportedly (Ludella Seabolt) a Will filed in Baltimore by Joseph Crane leaving half of a property (400 acres) in Greenbrier to his son Edward and the other half to Benjamin Zopp, also dated in 1939. It is porported that Joseph Crane gave the land to Ben Zopp because he was a brother-in-law. Supposedly, Joseph Crane married a Mary Catherine Zopp (Sopp or Sapp) (who died between 1825 and 1833), sister to Ben Zopp? A transcription of Joseph Crane's Will is in his scrapbook.

Name found in the Marriage Index for Greenbrier County, WV in 1850, FTM CD#. Name found in the Index to Marriages, Greenbrier County, WV, Book Led, page 13, 1850. Name found in the Index to Deaths, Greenbrier County, WV, Book 1A, page 70, year 1883, line 38.

Information on father (Jacob), mother (Sarah), age (82) & place of birth (Baltimore,Maryland) was taken from a death certificate in Greenbrier County, WV. His wife Abigail provided information for the certificate. His death certificate lists his occupation as mechanic.

No other records prior to 1850 have been located. It was rumored that Benjamin and Joseph Crane were friends and or related in Baltimore and moved to Greenbrier together. I think, since there is no census record of Ben Zopp prior to 1850, if the rumors are true, Benjamin must have been living/working with Joseph Crane in Baltimore.

June Ann Shawver Lindner has a "time line" which reads "Ben Zopp names a son after Joseph Starr Crane" dated April 25, 1883. This must have been Benjamin Wilson Zopp.

There is a transcription of Ben's Will in this scrapbook. He is buried on the Mill Creek farm.

The 1840 Greenbrier Co., WV census lists a Jeremiah Agon living next door to Edward E. Crane. There are 6 males 30-40 years and 1 male 40-50 years and no females. Benjamin may be one of these males. I have not found Jeremiah Agon elsewhere. 1830 census is an alphabetacal index, no help in locating neighbors.

Probated Will: Greenbrier Co. WB 5, Pg. 281 (4 Jul 1878)

The Greenbrier Independent, Volume XVII, Number 39, Thursday Evening, March 8, 1883

Benjamin R Zopp, after four years of suffering and confinement to his bed, died on the 13th ultimo, at his residence on Mill Creek mountain, in his 83rd year. He came to this county from Baltimore in 1834, on account of ill health. He leaves a wife and seven children--five boys and two girls--to lament his death. His land was willed to him at the death of Jos. S. Crane in 1839. When the Sheriff's came around, year by year, his taxes were always ready for them. From the time he came to Greenbrier until his death he never owed any man a cent. He never visited his native city after coming to Greenbrier.

Dear Mr. Zopp. I want to thank you for the great information that you have placed into the computer world on the Zopp and Crane families. My Name is John Edward Pomeroy Jr., formally of Quinwood WVA. My mother was Suzanna Smith Pomeroy, Her mother was Mattie Dolore McClung Smith. Her father was Charles Easton Smith. Her grandmother was Charlotte Jane Zopp who married

Clark Brown McClung.

Through the computer, I located the Glentzer family, of the Cornelius Miller Family. They have produced a picture taken in approximately 1914 of Cornelius Miller McClung, Luther McClung, Charolotte Jane Zopp McClung, Her daughters, (Lilly , Vernie and Mattie), also ECK (Little Alex) McClung and his children by Latuna Smith, Xerxie, Xerdie, and Oather. There are twenty four in the picture and we are trying to make POSITIVE identifications of each of them in order to get this into the McClung Journal.

If you want a copy of this for your records, I will be happy to have the Glentzer family to send it to you. They also took recent photos of the Zopp Family heaadstones at The End Of The Trail Cemetary, at Clintonville, WVA. Sincerely John E. Pomeroy 90~ Odom Dr. Fayetteville, N.C. 28304....E-Mail address tokyo0298@aol.com

Thank you for your responce. I just received a 46 page story written by Lilly Dure McClung and Orange McClung's youngest daughter Trudie in 1984. Trudie was born in 1922, but by using Lilly's family Bible she was able to describe the lower side of Big Mountain from Rupert to the top of the mountain. This includes Mill Creek on Big Mountain. Lilly had gotten her teaching degree from Lewisburg WVA and rode her horse from her parents house, Clark Brown McClung and his wife Charlotte Jane Zopp McClung, to the log school house on Mill Creek. She describes the Crane family and some of the Zopp family there to include family names and children there. It is a work of love. I have sent this to Judith McClung at the McClung Journal with a request that if the whole story is to be printed that a copy go to Al Zopp and Keith McClung. This is the last of The living Big Mountain and it's story.

The Cemetary at the end of Big Mountain was called the Wilson Cemetary. Oather McClung's daughter Florence and Frances calls it the McMillion Cemetary. This is where Clark Brown McClung and Charlotte Jane McClung have a LARGE tombstone.

Pet And Dee Zopp lived on Mill Creek, but when I lived in Quinwood, they lived behind the town on Sugar Groove Hill. They never married. Behind their home was a smaller home and a field. There was a small grave yard there with about four graves along the dirt road that I was told were Zopps - I lived there from 1952 to 1965.

This may help your research and help me with mine.

NOTES; William Joseph Smith married and lived on Mill Creek. His son Auston got the homestead after his death, but moved to Quinwood on O'Dell hill.

Edward Crane built the first store on Big Mountain. About 7 miles from Rupert. Edward lived on Mill Creek and his daughter Martha Lucinda married William Joseph Smith. There son Charles Easton Smith then got the store. All of his children were born above the store. This is just part of Trudie's story. I have traveled all over the world, but the Rupert side of Big Mountain has been my "God's Church of Nature" in my later years. Sugar Groove Hill behind Pet and Dee Zopps was my early year "God's Church of Nature". Living beside the Quinwood WVA First Baptist Church and seeing the men go from the church to Xerxie McClung's (ZerZee's Hilltop Resteraunt) for a cold one taught me that God was closer to me on Sugar Grooves that down there in Quinwood.

Thank you and your family for such great love and caring by working on genealogy and bringing back to life the past that so many of us miss in our families. 1. A meal with no TV or Music and just CONVERSATION. 2. Someone reading a part of the Bible after the evening meal-SUPPER. Even the Good Lord did not eat at the Lord's dinner.
