Notes for JOSEPH JOHANN BRUNER:

Came to United States in 1729 on the ship "Allen". Arrived in

Philadelphia on September 11, 1729. His wife, name unknown, died in

Germany at the birth of their youngest son. His family settled at

Frederick County, Maryland, and it has been told that he died there. They

had 6 known children

=================================================================

Joseph Johann BRUNNER was born on 26 Aug 1678 in Schifferstadt, Germany.

He died before 1756 in Frederick, Frederick Co., MD. Joseph Prunder

(probably a misspelling of "Brunner") and Johannes "Prunder" are listed

as being imported on the ship "ALLEN", James Craigie, Master from

Rotterdam, but las from Cows, as clearance thence dated 7th of July last

(1727).

Marriage may have taken place at the Reformed Church at Igglesheim which

is near Schifferstadt, Germany.

Joseph's son Jacob is probably the first of his family to migrate from

Germany to America. He was from Schifferstadt, Manheim, and came to

America on the ship "Mortenhouse" arriving at Philadelphia PA on Aug 23,

1728. After taking the oath Jacob decided to return to Germany and obtain

permission.

About a year later, on July 7, 1729, Jacob Brunner gathered his father,

Joseph, and two of his brothers -- Henry and John -- and as a foursome

they sailed for America from Schifferstadt. "In the year 1729, the year

following Johann Jacob Brunner's arrival only two shiploads of German

immigrants sailed up the Delaware. The second of these, the ship "Allen"

anchored at Philadelphia on Sept. 11th after a voyage from England

lasting 70 days. Among her 126 passengers were Alexander Mack and some

thirty families in his colony of German Baptist Brethren. But also on

board was the balance of the Brunner family from Klein Schifferstadt.

The four were naturalized at the courthouse in Philadelphia, PA on Sept

15, 1729. In the original list of Pennsylvania - German immigrants (which

has been published in three volumes) Joseph Brunner's surname was given

as "Prunder" but was corrected in the later listing as "Brunner". Anita

Fisher of Cambridge City, IN wrote in "Genealogy of the Bruner Family

1728-1967" that Joseph came to America after his wife died and arrived in

Philadelphia on Sept. 11, 1729 on the ship ALLEN.

Principally because the Brunners were Reformed and Reformed church

records did not begin in Lancaster until 1736, no member of this family

has definitely been identified in Pennsylvania before the move to

Maryland.

"Pioneers of Old Monocacy - the Early Settlement of Frederick Co., MD

1721-1743, page 269, by Grace L. Tracey & Jacob Dern in 1987 says: "Four

lots located at the southwest corner of "Tasker's Chance" just beyond

Henrich Sinn's parcel were the homes of Joseph Brunner and his sons

Henry, John, and Jacob Brunner.".

Page 257 says "Tasker's Choice was 7,000 acres on which most of the city

of Frederick, Frederick Co., is settled. It lay immediately west of the

Monocacy River and extended some four miles northward from the mouth of

Carrol Creek. Westward the land stretched between two and four miles from

the River, but still fell roughly a mile and a half short of the German

Monocacy Road which paralleled its western boundary nearer to Catoctin

Mt."

Page 269 says "The Brunner family originated in Rothenstein, Switzerland,

but before 1679 had migrated to the Palatine village of Klein

Schifferstadt, six miles north of the city of Speyer. Only some fifteen

families, all adhering to the Reformed religion, lived in this tiny

German Hamlet. Also known as Schifferstadt auf der Wiesen, or simply

Wieser, it was sometimes called das obere Dorf (the upper village) in

contradistinction to neighboring Gross Schifferstadt, das untere Dorf or

Niederdorf, the lower village. Gross Schifferstadt was truly "gross", a

Catholic village of over 1,000 inhabitants, which today has absorbed its

little neighbor to the west so that the combination is now known simply

as Schifferstadt. The well-known Maryland families of Thomas, Gah,

Getzendanner and Storm also came from here.".

When Joseph Brunner died he deeded his tract of land called

"Schifferstadt" to his youngest son, Elias Brunner, who apparently was

born in this country. Joseph Brunner's son Henry received a tract of land

called "Carroll Creek". One of the old Brunner mills with a large stone

residence is still standing on the west side of the creek and is marked

with a plaque. In his will Joseph also mentioned owning a house in

Frederick.

Joseph Bruner came to America in 1729 on the ship "Allen". It arrived at

Philadelphia on September 11, 1729. His wife, name unknown, died in

Germany at the birth of their youngest son, Elias. (Story handed down in

family). Joseph Bruner and his family settled at Frederick County,

Marylnad, and it has been told that he died there. They had six known

children, Jacob, John, Anna Barbara, Henry, Catherine Elizabeth, and

Elias. (p4).

He named his plantation "Scheverstadt". It was 303 acres. AKA

Schifferstadt or Kleinschifferstadt. Subsequently joined with

Grossschifferstadt into a municipality of the single name.

Kleinschifferstadt was a Protestant (Reformed) community, but it was so

small that it was the location for a chapel of the parish of Iggelheim,

in whose parochial registers have been sources for this family.

p272. On May 3, 1740, the Brunners swore allegiance to Lord Baltimore,

thereby gaining naturalization and the right to possess property. Record

identifies a number of descendants down to the third generation. Joseph

Brunner and son Elias; Jacob Brunner and children Peter, Michael, John,

Jacob, Mary and Elizabeth; John Brunner and children John, Jacob,

Catharine, Barbara and Mary; Henry Brunner and son John.

In 1742 Joseph Brunner and his sons Jacob, John and Henry signed petition

to divide Prince George's Parish. Joseph lived another 5 years and wrote

his will on Jan. 17, 1753. In it he mentioned no wife, who therefore had

presumably died before him. Land conveyed to son Elias Brunner. Henry

Brunner (1715-1775) and his wife Maria Magdalena Sellers appeared

frequently as sponsors in Frederick Reformed Church Book.



Children of JOSEPH BRUNER and CATHERINE THOMAS are:

i. ANNA BARBARA5 BRUNER, b. September 21, 1701, klein-Schifferstadt, Pfalz, Germany; d. 1773, Frederick Co., MD; m. CHRISTIAN GOTZENDANNER.

Notes for JACOB BRUNER:

Came to United States in 1728 with his wife, Barbara, and their two

oldest children.

Jacob bought 248 acres from Daniel Dulany in "Tasker's Chance" July 28,

1746 called "Rich Level" or "Rich Levells", and added 730 acres in Chevy

Chase" Frederick county 1751-53; paid taxes in Frederick County until

1760. Also in 1746 his brother, John, and neighbor on the southeast,

received 234.5 acres called "What-a-will" (Later called What-you-will);

Henry Brunner's 186 acres nearby were called "Carroll Creek"; John Storm

had 202 acres named "Indian Field"; and Joseph Brunner had 303 acres in

the middle of all this, which he named "Scheverstadt". Joseph was one of

the minority of German colonial pioneers who memorized a European place

in naming his plantation according to "The Brunners of Scheverstadt" 1984.



iii. GABRIEL BRUNER, b. February 14, 1705/06, Klein-Schifferstadt, Pfalz, Germany.

Notes for GABRIEL BRUNER:

Some believe he may have been "Feeble Minded". The Klein indicates a

possible reduced mental capacity.

No record of him after Catechism. Probably died before the family's

1729 emigration.

(Johan Henrich's son known as "Henry" in America) died at an early age

(26) and only had three children, one of which is my GGGGrandfather,

John. Another son is Henry (presummably, Henry the third) which may have

account for some of the confusion. My "proof" comes from the above

mentioned Maryland Calendar of Wills, so I beleive it is pretty accurate.

OBITUARY OF JACOB BRUNER:

Jacob Bruner, a soldier of the American Revolution, died at his residence

in the North part of Greene County, Tennessee, on the tenth day of August

1847, in the 85th year of his age. ( he started his 85th Year May 29th)

He was born at Fredericktown, Maryland in 1763. During the memorable

struggle for American Independence, he was twice called into the service

of his country; and after serving out times for which he was called,

while doubts were enterained as to the eventful preponderance. Under

such dobious circustances, Jacob Bruner became a volunteer again and

rushed to the drooping standard of his outraged country; and a third time

he joined her armies. He was never, however, in any noted battle. The

fortunes of the war called him away from the main army to quash the Troy

insurrections in the Jerseys to guard prisoners of war. When the war was

over and his country free, he was united in marriage to Miss Margaret

Cline, about the 22nd year of his age. Sometime afterwards he

established himself as a hat manufacturer in Millerstown (now Woodstock),

Shanandoah County, Virginia. Here, as also subsequently in Tennessee, he

was employed as a teacher of both English and German students in the same

school. About the year 1797 (fifty years ago) he embraced the religion

of the meek and lowly Jesus; and united with a sect called "The United

Brethren", "Dutch Methodist", or "Oberbiners" from their leader, the

celebrated Mr. Oterbine. But on removing to Tennessee, in 1804 he was

thrown beyond the territorial boundary of his church, into a Methodist

community and soon he became a member of the Methodist Episcopal church.

He became a member of a little class in his neighborhood; and when it

pleased the authorities of the church to merge this little class into one

on the border of another neighborhood, he did not remove his name, but

said to his son, in allusion to his infirmities, "It is not worth while

to join that class, as I cannot attend." He remained, however, a

faithful christian; and never omitted family devotions if it was possible

for him to attend to them. Before his bodily infirmities prevented, he

was often tent holder for Camp meetings, where some of his children were

happily and powerfully converted to God. Among those converted was his

son, John, who lived faithfully till called into the service for his

country in the War of 1812, when he left his friends and the home of his

youth, singing a transporting hymn; but he left to return no more; his

remains reposed in a rough grave at Lookout Mountain where he fell. The

remaining eleven of the twelve children of Jacob Bruner, yet lines and

though scattered abroad, they will unite with their windowed mother, in

lamenting the death of old Jacob--for he has not lived in vain as most of

his children and many of his grandchildren are members of a church and

several of them officers there as leaders, exhorters and preachers in

Tennessee and other states. He had long seemed unusally dead to this

world. His treasures being in Heaven, his conversation was generally on

religious subjects. He had long lived in the expectation of death, but

feared it not--with him to live was Christ and to die was gain. The day

before his death he was taken with a great weakness, but complained of no

pain. To the companion of his early life, the angel of mercy in his

afflictions, he said, "Mother, (for this was the term he usually appled

to his aged consort) I reckon you will soon lose your old man; you must

try to be faithful to meet me again." At another time he said, "Mother,

my heart is fixed Glory to God." He talked but little during his last

illness, but he would occasionally sing verses of his favorite hymns.

Among others, he sang the following with much pathos and devotion "Let

other stretch their arms like seas, and gasp in all the shore. Grant me

the visits of Thy face, and I desire no more." He sang, "Come, my Jesus

from above and feed my soul with heavenly love." "This is all that I

want," he added. While laying calmly, he said, "My Savior and my God,

glory to Thy name." Soon after this, his powers of speech failed him

almost entirely; and within a few hours, he breathed his last without a

struggle or a groan. Thus, my Grandfather "fell asleep".

Notes for MARGARET KLEIN:

OBITUARY OF MARGARET BRUNER

Margaret Bruner, reliet of Jacob Bruner, bade adieu to this vale of

sorrow at her resident in Greene County, Tennessee, on the fifteenth of

May 1849. She was born in Fredericktown, Maryland on February 28, 1764

and was united in marriage with Jacob Bruner on May 29, 1784 and some

time afterwards removed to Virginia and settled in Shanandoah County. In

1804 she removed with her husband and family to Tennessee and settled in

Greene County. In 1807 she became a member of the M. E. church and soon

afterwards professed religion. She remained a member in the church until

death ended her earthly pilgrimage, a period of 45 years. Nor were these

years of gloom and darkness for her. They were years of comfort---of

pure religious enjoyment. Her's was the "ornament of a meek and quiet

spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price". She endeavored to

"adorn the doctrines of God our Savior in all things". Hardly ever did

she fail to obain a blessing when attending the worship of God. She

delighted much in God's house and in the company of His children. She

had a large family of nine sons and three daughters. These she took

pains to train in the way they should go. They were the subjects of her

prayers, of her most tender and deep concern. Great anxiety did she feel

for their eternal well being. Nor were her pious efforts in vain. She

lived to see most of her children converted to God, in the church and on

their way to heaven. She was confined to her bed but few days during

which time she suffered but little pain. One of her sons visited her

frequently before her death and conversed freely with her on the

subject. She told him she was ready and waiting to go and at times

seemed almost impatient to he gone. Whenever the subject was mentioned

she would clap her hands and shout aloud for joy. She died without a

struggle or groan closing her own eyes, and no one looking on perhaps

could have told but what she had fallen into sleep. May all her children

meet her in heaven.
