Church records from Berks County, Pennsylvania and elsewhere are important in helping to find the ancestors of the Shirers.Found here are many that have helped in this process.


DeLong's Reformed Church, Bowers, Maxatawny Twp., Berks Co., PA.

   Valentine Shirrar was from Berks Co. before he came to Somerset Co. His three oldest sons were born there and the records here for Delong's Reformed Church are persuasive to that point. Delong's Reformed Church, in Maxatawny Twp, Berks County, Pennsylvania is German Reformed. As more and more Germans of Lutheran faith settled there, a Lutheran Minister also presided over services there sharing the church with the Reformed congregation. About 1789, a new church uniting both faiths was built in Kutztown and called Union Church. A church with this name existed on land donated by the Delong's and was also known as Delongs Reformed Church and also as Bowers. More can be found at the Berks Co., USGENWEB site under Location of Various Churches in Berks/Schuylkill Counties, PA.

   The list here is an excerpt from a book entitled "Berks County Church Records of the 18th Century," by F. Edward Wright, Family Line Publications, 1993-1994. Delong's Reformed Church (Vol II). It contains other references other than Delong's Reformed but only possible Shirer ancestors are listed. Thanks to Jane Nelson for supplying the list.

   MAXATAWNY, AKA DE LONG'S AND BOWERS: The old Maxatawny congregation split in 1759, giving rise to this congregation named after the donor of land for a new church and school. A church register was begun for the Reformed in 1765. A union church with Lutherans existed here from 1871 to 1900. In 1980 the church was known as Christ UCC, Bowers. 1

Moselem Churches, Richmond Twp., Berks Co., PA.

   MOSELEM AND ONTELAUNEE: located in Richmond Twp., "The two Moselem churches are believed to be the oldest Lutheran and Reformed congregations in Berks county." The Lutherans began a church register in 1741, and after 1744 there are many baptisms and marriages entered in chrological order. Building of a church began in 1740: after dedication in 1743 it was called Sebastian's Church. When a new church was built on the site in 1761, it was called Zion's Church. A register begun in 1764 for the Reformed congregation refers to itself as "Peter's Church in Richmond Township." Evidently there was a place where Reformed ministers preached before 1760, but without a formally organized congregation there. In 1980 the Lutheran congregation is Zion Church four miles west of Kutztown, and the Reformed congregation came into St. Peter's UCC three miles north of Fleetwood. 1

Oley Hills Church (Salem), Oley Twp., Berks Co., PA.

   OLEY AKA HILL CHURCH: Lutheran activity at Oley prior to organization of a congregation included baptisms by John Caspar Stoever, and preaching by Valentine Kraft. There is reference in a 1745 letter to the "Lutheran congregation" which met in a house at Oley. Rev. Henry Melchoir Muhlenberg reported in 1747 that he had conducted services "'in the Oly mountains,'" and a later report indicates a rude log church was built there in that year. Land for a Lutheran cemetery was obtained at Oley in August 1747, but it was not surveyed until 1750. In 1754 student pastor Lucas Raus began a church register for the Lutheran congregation in the hills of Oley at Colebrookdale. In 1786 a stone church was dedicated which was shared by Reformed, who had been using the cemetery for some time earlier. It was called the Hill Church. A clear title to this land was obtained in 1829 by the trustees of the Lutheran and Reformed congregations in Pike Twp. The union church, situated 3 miles north of Boyertown, continued to exist in 1980, with each congregation having its own name, viz., St. Joseph's Lutheran and St. John's Reformed. 1

Schwartzwald Church, Exeter Twp., Berks Co. PA.

   SCHWARTZWALD: These Lutheran and Reformed congregations located in Exeter Twp. probably date from the early 1740s, but early historical information is scarce. The church is not mentioned by early pastors whose writings have survived, and there is no early register. The earliest mention of Schwartzwald in the Reformed coetus or the Lutheran ministerium is in 1793. Its existence in the early 1740s is known from a diary entry in 1745 and from a 1754 letter by H. M. Muhlenberg who states that he dedicated this union church in the first years of his service in Pennsylvania. A communion tankard dated 1744 in the church supports Muhlenberg's statement about the dedication date. A sturdy building served the two congregations until 1811 when a new building was erected. A register begun by Rev. William Boos in 1781 survives. It contains some 3600 baptisms and 2000 marriages performed between 1781 and 1811. It appears that during much of the time between its founding and 1793 pastors from Reading served Schwartzwald. The union arrangement was dissolved in 1954, with the Lutherans continuing to use the name Schwartzwald Church located 5 miles east of Reading on Rt. 562. The Reformed are known as Schwartzwald Church of Christ, Jacksonwald. 1

Reformed Church of Longswamp, Longswamp Twp., Berks Co., PA.

   LONGSWAMP (AKA MACUNGIE? OR LITTLE LEHIGH?): located in Longswamp Twp., congregation dating from the 1740s. Jacob Weymer, a later pastor, recorded that the Reformed congregation in this place had resolved to build a house of worship in 1748. In 1753 land was secured for a church and cemetery, and in 1791 a second church was built on the property. In 1817 a Lutheran congregation was formed, and with the earlier Reformed congregation a union church was formed at Longswamp in 1852. 1

Tobias Wagner, with baptisms recorded back to 1738. The name Mertz Church first appears in a record dated in 1800. The congregation is named Christ Church, and is located 5 miles south of Kutztown. 1

Neither congregation held regular pastors for long: the Lutherans had 11 pastors between 1751 and 1796, including Andrew Krug who served seven years; and the Reformed had 9 pastors between 1752 and 1815, including William Boos who served a total of 15 years on two separate occasions. In 1980 the Lutheran church at 527 Washington Street was called Trinity, and the Reformed at 611 Washington Street had become United Church of Christ. 1
