[NI003] Died as a teenager of Bright's Disease.[Stark.ftw]

See:
nephritis


(nfr´ts) , inflammation of the kidney. The earliest finding is within the renal capillaries (glomeruli); interstitial edema is typically followed by interstitial infiltration of lymphocytes, plasma cells, eosinophils, and a small number of polymorphonuclear leukocytes. The disease is thought to be immunological, but immunoglobulins and drug antigens have been found in only a few cases. The damage is usually reversible when the cause is recognized and removed, but severe cases can progress to fibrosis and renal failure. The disease can take several forms. Pyelonephritis is usually associated with a bacterial infection transmitted from the bladder or blood; it affects the renal pelvis and is treated with antibiotics. Glomerulonephritis, or Bright’s disease, causes degenerative changes in the glomeruli and is believed to be an allergic response to infection elsewhere in the body. Symptoms include headache, mild fever, puffiness of the eyes and face, high blood pressure, and discoloration of the urine. Treatment includes bed rest and limiting the intake of water, sodium, and proteins, and, if necessary, dialysis; antibiotics are given to halt infections (e.g., streptococcal) invasion. The disease occurs more frequently among the young. About 95% of patients recover from the acute phase of the disease; however, if glomerulonephritis becomes chronic, renal damage results after many years, causing kidney failure.

DID YOU KNOW? - Bright's Disease:
---------------------------------
Also, albuminuria, essential nephritis, kidney disease. A
diffuse, progressive, degenerative disease of the kidney
chacterized by dropsy of the upper and lower parts of the body.
It ranked high as a cause of death during the 18th, 19th, and
early 20th centuries [extracted from Jerger, A Medical
Miscellany for Genealogists, 1995, #J162].

Steele, James & Margaret have a daughter who is living (as of November 1994)
Her name is Jean Fillans Steele Leake (grandpa George Edward Stark's cousin)
She also has a brother, Oscar who is still living and a sister Ellen. (age 84)
I talked to her in November of 1994 and again in April of 1995.

She gave me the following information:

Before 1910-
The family lived in a small log cabin in a place called Stark's meadow.
Margaret Stark (Jean called her Aunt Meg) got divorced from George E. Stark. He died a couple of years later. [death date not proven] (She mentioned that she thought he drank himself to death) [child Eugenia or Eugenie Stark died of Bright's disease as a teenager] Meg couldn't take care of all of the children. She had to send some of the children to an orphan's home in Baltimore, Maryland. The oldest daughter, Lily, and her mother moved to a place called Koontz barricks (a place where coal miners stayed) The rest of the children (George, Annie May, and Charlie) went to the home. When the family went to get the children back, they were told that Charlie had passed away. His uncle Claude didn't believe them and tried to find death records or some proof that he had died but he could not find any records. Claude believed that Charlie was adopted out and the people at the home didn't tell the family about it.
I believe that before 1910 Margaret Stark went to live with her parents and one brother along with her daughter Lily. ( I found this information in the 1910 census for Lonaconing, Maryland in Allegany County.)
I received a picture today ( May 3, 1995) from Jean Steele Leake. It is a picture of George Edward Stark, Annie M. Stark, and Charlie Stark. It was taken before they went to the orphans home in Baltimore. It was taken in front of their log cabin. The had a table cloth hanging in front of the cabin.



Need to check 1910 census for Baltimore, MD for George, Annie Mae, and Charlie STARK in an orphan's home..George, age 10, Annie Mae, age 7 or 8, and Charlie, age 4 (Charlie was supposed to have died in Orphan's home.

THIS INFORMATION WAS FOUND ONLINE AT: http://home.cfl.rr.com/bfair/JacobJ.htm
THIS INFORMATION INCLUDES DULCIE E. FAIR wife of Charles STARK


Jacob (1767) & Catherine FAIR -MD > PA


Jacob (1767) and Catherine (KNAPPENBERGER) FAIR lived in the Somerset County area of Pennsylvania and had 8 children (by our latest research). All 8 children are listed below under level 3. Their children, if known, are listed under level 4.

NEW
The family name was spelled at that time (as it is now) Knappenberger. Many people put the "b" in it instead of the "p" because of the German pronunciation. Catherine was born 20 January 1777 in Northampton County (which later became Lehigh County), PA. Her baptism record with birth date is on record at the Lehigh Zion Church in Lehigh County, PA. For more info contact
Catherine Knappenberger Site www.knappenberger.net

NEW
Our line, John and Anna Mary (WINTER) FAIR lived in Alleghany Co. MD (formerly part of Frederick Co.) and had 7 children. Sometime around 1832 they moved to Somerset Co. PA and had 5 more children. All 12 children are listed below as level 4.

When we started this site in early December of '97, our intentions (in addition to helping anyone looking for FAIR connections), were to see if we could find John's siblings and parents. In February, a cousin, Darren Smith, contacted me with enough information for he and my brother Bob in Utah to go to his giant Morman Library and come up with the following line of FAIRs. Most of these resided in Somerset (or nearby counties), Pennsylvania. Later in February, another cousin, Penny Rodighiero, contacted us with a connection to Rebecca FAIR & Jeremiah Menges. She supplied more information to add to the list.

Anyone wishing to contribute or exchange additional information to this list, please email me at the address at the bottom of this page, or my brother Robert at rfair@uswest.net

Written on July 21, 2002

Dear Ms. Stark

I received your letter today. The letter was addressed to my father Harold D. Moore but since my father is 80, I usually do all his writting (sic). Yes my father is a relative to Fred Moore. His father Joseph Moore was a brother to Fred Moore. I personally did not know Fred. He lived on Gills Hill in Lonaconing for several years with his wife Lill as my grandmother called her. My grandfather, it seems, didn't visit his brother Fred much, and my grandmother used to think Fred and his wife were a little too uppitty for them. Mom said she remembers my grandmother talking about how Lill made fun of her family and about how often my grandma's fed her family beans. My grandma had 8 children which would be neices and nephews of Fred. My father Harold and his brother Lloyd are the only ones alive. You sent a letter to my brother Raymond Moore and he is like me, and does not know much about Pa's side of the family. Pa, that's what we called my grandfather, never gave us much information about his family exept (sic) his father's name was Zeke Moore, or Ezekial, maybe. I called my cousin Eileen, to see if she knew much about Fred because she lives on Gills Hill yet. She said she remembers talking to Fred and his wife Lillian, who was a short, stout, lady and she had the boy Alex (Note:this is probably Albert) STARK with her. My dad said he thought the boy Alex maybe was a little slow or retarded. It's too bad my aunt Ellen Schramn is dead because she knew everything about the family. We still live right beside where Pa's and Ma's old homeplace was. Summertime was such a good time back in days. Homemade rootbeer, and ice cream made by turning the crank forever were special treats. My grandma, Anna MOORE (TIMNEY) had a springhouse and you could always go in there and cool off. I miss those old folks and a gentle time and a slower pace. People appreciated more, back in the days. I'm sorry I don't have a lot of information about Lillian and Frederick at this time. My mother said that Fred had another brother named Harmon, and sister's named Becky and Rosie and possibly one called Mollie.
My name by the way, is Vivian Moore, I never married and am still living with my parents. I have a sister called Cecilia and brother Raymond they all have children and grandchildren. I'll close now, but if I get some more information, I'll send it to you.
Sincerely, Vivian Moore

Obit Lookups

Hello,

I was wondering if you could help me.

I am looking for an obituary for:

John M. STARK born March 29, 1845 and died April 10, 1923 and is buried in the Eckhart Mines Cemetery in Allegany County.

Jane or Jean ROBERTSON STARK born November 7, 1849 and died March 15, 1920 and is buried in the Eckhart Mines Cemetery in Allegany, Maryland

Do you have these obituaries at the library and if so, how much does it cost for a lookup (if you do lookups) and a copy of the obituary?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Robyn Stark Knowley (RKnowley@aol.com))

Received email from MaryJo on 21 December 2001 stating they couldn't locate an obituary for either John or Jane STARK

They have a will for a John M. STARK that died in March of 1963

William has the same immigration date as his parents, but not on the same passenger list. Was sheriff of Cumberland County, Maryland, as was his son, David later. Still unmarried at age 47.
(oral history-William) He kept his Scottish brogue to point that his speech was almost not understandable. It is remembered his hair and beard were white. When he inherited the parent's home including the personal items brought from Scotland, a split was caused among the siblings.

[NI149] [STEELE17122002.FTW]

James was a mine engineer. Migrated to West Virginia and his {widowed?) brother Andrew lived with him for a brief period. James later settled in Uniontown, Pa. area among small mining towns. One of these was Helen, Pa where his youngest daughter Helen was born
{oral history}-James spent his time aboard ship in the engine area tells daughter Helen. Never lost his brogue which became thicker as he got older. Helen also tells that he said the flowers in Scotland were better. His granddaughter Betty Morrow Harvey quoted him as saying education was better in Scotland. He played the clarinet with a band and transposed music. He had a mustache and a full head of hair. When he died he had no gray hair and the light through it would show red on his dark hair recalls daughter Helen. She also said even though he was a religious man, he didn't like Sunday. His wife's father was killed in the Civil War and her mother's brother adopted her, relates daughter Helen.

Located in the 1920 census living in Uniontown, Fayette, Pennsylvania

Robert migrated to Pittsburgh, Pa. area where he was employed as a mill hand at time of his marriage. He later had a home dairy and horse drawn milk wagon home delivery service. Then he worked as a guard at Nabisco Company in East Liberty. His growing family lived near the large DEAN family of his wife Diana DEAN. He also played the violin in music groups. This was placed in his coffin when he was laid out at home.
(oral history) Robert's hair was reddish in color says niece Helen Steele. She remembers during a visit that a metal milk can of pennies sat under the kitchen table on Berthoud Street. The family says that he would sell his milk in the hill district, arrive home with empty milk containers as well as empty pockets, singing from his imbibing--wife Diana cured him by putting him to bed and decreasing his daily alcohol intake. Not sure how long a period of time was involved!!! It was Robert's son, Robert Jr. (husband of Emma) who helped to recontact the families of James in Uniontown and Robert in Pittsburgh.

Silk Mill a tourism opportunity
To the Editor:
It's a good and right step forward regarding the current interest in the Lonaconing Silk Mill. The Preservation Society of Allegany County back in the early 70's focused on this rare treasure in Allegany County, and that it could become a museum of great interest. Lonaconing is an historic town and with its other tourist sites, the Silk Mill would be the "icing on the cake."

The Preservation Society had forwarded the necessary application to the Georges Creek Promotional Council to seek assistance in the Maryland 2000 program to Save Maryland's Treasures. We are constantly hearing that tourism is what we need, yet so many of our really historic sites have been destroyed over the past 30 years or so. The Silk Mill offers a great chance to have another tourist attraction to draw people to Allegany County. The more we offer for tourists to see and do, the longer they will stay in our county, hopefully leaving behind some money.

Hi Robyn - Many thanks for your reply - great to find family in the USA.
More information for you:-

Obituary published in the Glasgow Herald -

"The Late John Fillans - Many of our readers will learn with regret of
the death of Mr John Fillans, sculptor. Mr Fillans inherited a portion
of the talent possessed by his more celebrated brother James, and was
well known to the 'cognoscenti' of the town and neighbourhood for his
exceeding neat production in 'relievo.' His wax medallion of his
brother's bust of Motherwell has long been justly admired for its
artistic excellences, and several of his other works - such as the
medallion of Sir William Wallace - are indications of fine powers both
of perception and of execution. Mr Fillans was of a singulary unwordly
character, and was content to pass through life comparatively unknown.
He lacked entirely the commercial spirit and the energy of character
necessary to raise himself in the social scale, and thought of strictly
temperate habits, he failed entirely in what the world calls 'getting
on.' But to men such as he, money, beyound what is necessary for the
supply of ambition, and probably when his simple requirements were
supplied, Mr Fillans was among the happiest of men. He worked largely,
we believe, in cameo and imitation-cameo brooches, and in this way was
largely patronised in town. Mr Fillans was present and in his usual
state of health at the recent cremonies connected with the inauguration
of the Park Monument, but a few weeks ago, and dined with the party
afterwoods at Renfrew. About a month ago the family were attacked by
fever under which his son (Roger King Fillans), aged 21, speedily
succumbed. On being told of his son's death when himself prostrate under
the effects of the disease, his remark was, that he would speedily
follow. Still his condition after passing the crisis of fever left some
room for hope, and his friends had been flattering themselves that he
was likely to recover. He however, never rose, and expired on Tuesday,
28th May, 1867. Yesterday he was interred in the family buying-place in
the Cemetery, beside the remains of his father and brother. Mr Fillans
was, we understand in his 50th year."
Would love to receive pictures
of Jean Fillans. Will send you more soon - Regards Forbes

You will note that Ann Waterton was only 38 when she died and this could have been as a result of the birth of her last baby, Jemima. This was quite common in those days as my great grandmother Agnes died within a year of her last baby. I have loved researching the Fillans family as they are very interesting. It is so good to get details like the obituary as it brings people so close even though they lived so long ago. You are the first Fillans contact that I have found on the internet, so you are quite special. I have found a lot of the information regarding Scottish genealogy at http://www.Origins.Net this has many of the official records of Scotland online and is really a great site. I better go to bed now as it is getting late.

Hello Robyn
1- James FILLANS was born at Wilsontown, Lanarkshire, on 27 March 1808
and christened on 19 April 1808 as James Phillans. This was the spelling
used at that time in that area. He was the third child born to John and
Jean but was the first to survive. He died at Glasgow on 27 September
1852.
2- Agnes FILLANS was born in 1820 at Busby in Renfreshire. This was
found from the in the 1851 census which lists the birthplaces. John and
Jean for some unknown reason did not christen all their children and
only the census records can give us the year of birth. She died 17 March
1859 at Paisley, Renfrewshire. On 25 July 1841 she married James GILMOUR
in the Paisley Abbey. James born 1808 and died 03 December 1863 at
Paisley. Agnes was his second wife.

John Thomson Fillans and his wife Jean White (Whyte) had altogther 13
children.

Now I was wondering if you could help me trace two Fillans who I believe
to be sons of James FILLANS who immigrated to USA. The following is the
information I have and it requires checking the U.S. census returns. I
thought that you might be able to do this, if not don't worry.

Drummond C. FILLANS - name found in Family Tree Maker.
1880-1889 ILLINOIS - found on CD320 - Link: Census Index, US
Selected Counties, 1880 (#320)

John G. FILLANS - 1860-1869 - CALIFORNIA - found on CD318 - Link: Census
Index, US Selected Counties, 1860 (#318)

Drummond ( Drummon) C. FILLANS marriage shows up in Vital Records Index
- North America as follows -
FILLANS, Drummon C. married Jane W. JACKE on 13 March 1867 at Oakland,
Michigan, he was aged 29 and his wife was 22. FHL film number 973980.

Well Robyn thats about all at present - many thanks for your email
Sincerely Forbes.

Hi Robyn - Many thanks for your help - really great. I am at present
checking the last Scottish census films at the FHC library in
Christchurch to tie up loose ends in my search. Some ancestors really
know how to hide away - however sooner or later they turn up. I have had
a nice letter from Peter J.M. McEwan, the Author of 'Dictionary of
Scottish Art' re the Fillans who he had a bit mixed up. As he is
revising for a second edition towards the end of this year he was
thrilled to get my information on James, George and John and James's
children Wilhelmina and James Dunstan. So next year all should be
correct. The book is published by Antique Collectors Club, Woodbridge,
Suffolk, England. What part of USA do you live in? Your country is so
large while New Zealand is small with under 4 million people.
Best wishes from Forbes.

Hi Robyn - Thanks for the info re John G, and Drummond C. Fillans. I am
hoping to confirm that they are sons of James FILLANS next week and will
email the result. They would be born in London, England, c1836-38. Here
is some more info regarding James's family which is of interest. -
The eldest in the family was Wilhelmina FILLANS 1835-1900. She never
married and was a sculptor, artist and teacher of drawing in Glasgow. In
1873 she immigrated to the USA with her youngest brother James Dunstan
FILLANS who was a sculptor. They went to live with an older brother who
it would appear to be Drummond. She is listed in the following book
which you could look up regarding a work she exhibited in Detroit in
1874 -- 'Artists of Early Michigan' (1975), by Arthur H. Gibson and
published by Wayne State Univerisity Press, Detroit. If you can find the
book I would be interested in the full write up of Wilhelmina. I beleive
that she returned to Scotland c1876, but have no further info on her
than she died at Rothsay, Isle of Bute, Scotland, on 09 February, 1900,
aged 65 and is buried in the Fillans family plot at Woodside cemetery,
Paisley. Her brother James Dunstan married a Scottish girl Matilda
McCutcheon from Catrine Ayrshire, on 26 July 1875, in Cook County, IL.
This is where you found Drummond living. They returned to Glasgow,
Scotland and were listed in the 1881 census where he was a sculptor and
they had four children - at the moment this is where my info on him
stops.
Now Robyn, to answer some of your questions from previous emails --
1- I do not know of any books re John FILLANS and photo's.
2- I will send photo's, later when I complete the book.

Many thanks - sincerely Forbes.
PS It would be interesting to find any descendents of Drummond!

Hello Robyn
1- James FILLANS was born at Wilsontown, Lanarkshire, on 27 March 1808
and christened on 19 April 1808 as James Phillans. This was the spelling
used at that time in that area. He was the third child born to John and
Jean but was the first to survive. He died at Glasgow on 27 September
1852.
2- Agnes FILLANS was born in 1820 at Busby in Renfreshire. This was
found from the in the 1851 census which lists the birthplaces. John and
Jean for some unknown reason did not christen all their children and
only the census records can give us the year of birth. She died 17 March
1859 at Paisley, Renfrewshire. On 25 July 1841 she married James GILMOUR
in the Paisley Abbey. James born 1808 and died 03 December 1863 at
Paisley. Agnes was his second wife.

John Thomson Fillans and his wife Jean White (Whyte) had altogther 13
children.

Now I was wondering if you could help me trace two Fillans who I believe
to be sons of James FILLANS who immigrated to USA. The following is the
information I have and it requires checking the U.S. census returns. I
thought that you might be able to do this, if not don't worry.

Drummond C. FILLANS - name found in Family Tree Maker.
1880-1889 ILLINOIS - found on CD320 - Link: Census Index, US
Selected Counties, 1880 (#320)

John G. FILLANS - 1860-1869 - CALIFORNIA - found on CD318 - Link: Census
Index, US Selected Counties, 1860 (#318)

Drummond ( Drummon) C. FILLANS marriage shows up in Vital Records Index
- North America as follows -
FILLANS, Drummon C. married Jane W. JACKE on 13 March 1867 at Oakland,
Michigan, he was aged 29 and his wife was 22. FHL film number 973980.

Well Robyn thats about all at present - many thanks for your email
Sincerely Forbes.

Hi Robyn - Many thanks for the photo's - they are excellent and I am
thrilled to have them. Here is a list of John Fillans sculptures held by
the Paisley Museum and Art Gallery, High Street, Paisley.
D9 - Robert Tannahill - plaster bust, height 23 inches, presented by
Miss Fillans,1891. > D35 - Sir William Wallace - Bas Relief, 11X8
inches. > D52 William Motherwell - Medallion - accessioned 1912. > D24 -
Dr Wylie - Medallion - accessioned 1914. Scottish National Portrait
Gallery Library, Queen Street, Edinburgh.> William Motherwell - wax
medallion. You will note that Ann Waterton was only 38 when she died
and this could have been as a result of the birth of her last baby
Jemima - this was quite common in those days as my great grandmother,
Agnes died within a year of her last baby. I have loved researching the
Fillans family as they are very interesting - it is so good to get
details like the obituary as it brings the people so close even though
they lived so long ago. You are the first Fillans contact that I have
found on the internet, so you are quite special. I have found a lot of
information regarding Scottish genealogy at http://www.Origins.Net
this has many of the official records of Scotland online and is really a
great site. I better go to bed now as it is getting late. Best wishes
from Forbes.

From: forbestaylor@xtra.co.nzz

Hi Robyn,
Calling you from Christchurch, New Zealand. I am a descendant of Agnes Fillans a younger sister of John Fillans, who married Ann Waterston. I have almost completed a history of the Fillans family which I should have finished in about 2-3 months time. I have the family back to 1700 in Bathgate, Mid-Lothian, Scotland. John Fillans was born 30 Oct 1814 at Busby, Renfrewshire, Scotland, and died 28 May 1876 at Paisley, Renfrewshire. He is buried in the Fillians family plot in Woodside Cemetery, Paisley with his brother James (Sculptor) and his father John Thomson Fillans. Ann Waterston was born 1817 in Glasgow, Scotland and died in Paisley in 1855. I do not have a marriage date but it would be about 1843. They lived at 20 Gauze Street Paisley where John worked as a sculptor, but mainly in cameo brooches. Following are his children:
Jane (Jean) christened 28 Sep 1844, Paisley Low Church, married John Steele 10 May 1872
Thomas Coats Glen c. 13 Jan 1848, Paisley, Low Church, died 1868, Paisley.
Roger King, c. 28 Oct 1848, Paisley, Low Church, died 1876, Paisley.
Ann Lovanna c. 16 Oct 1851, Paisley, Middle Church, married George Barr 1876, died 1916, Paisley.
Jemima, c. 27 Apr 1854, Paisley Middle Church, married David Barr, 1878, died Paisley, 1898.
It is interesting that in the 1861 census Jean was sixteen and was a threadmill worker. I can send you more information on John Fillans, including his obituary as well as the holdings of some of his works in the Paisley Museum and Art Gallery. All four children of my greatgrandmother, Agnes Fillans immigrated to New Zealand around 1869 after her parents deaths. It will be great to hear from you and I would be very interested in any Fillans information that you might have as this will help complete my Fillans story. Regards, Forbes TAYLOR

Hi Robyn - Thanks for your emails re Jane W. Fillans. Quite interesting
as it appears to just list her in the Directory and not Drummond????
Information to date shows that they married at Oaklands, MI, 1867 -
Moved to Chicago, Cook County, in the 1880 census - back to Detroit in
1890. Thanks Robyn for your surfing and detective work. I have just
received the Death Certificate for Robert Napier FILLANS another son of
James and Grace (SCULPTOR). He was a mechanical engineer who in the
1860-70's, lived at Bombay, India. He died as a passenger on the
"Decean" on 29-05-1876 while returning to Scotland. He was aged 31 and
cause was an abscess of liver. Book coming to conclusion but still
awaiting some information from FHC. Just away now to look at two films
there.
Regards Forbes.

Hi Robyn
I have discovered where Barry Fillans fits into our Fillans family this
morning with the arrival of a letter from the US Social Security Dept. I
received the application form for Herman Joseph Fillans in 1934. He was
Barry's grandfather who was born 06 January 1895 and worked as a plumber
in New York. His father was George James Fillans who married Josephine
Geiger. George James was born in London on 08 January 1860 in the Parish
of Stephney the son of George Fillans and Martha Alvin. George was a
portrait painter and the next older brother to John - your ancestor, and
to my great grandmother Agnes who was younger. This now rules out
Drummond who does not appear to have had any family, however, it solves
where George James got to. I am emailing Barry to let him know that his
Fillans family is found.

So we are all related and can have a party some day!!!!
Hope all well with you Robyn and best wishes from
Forbes

James Shaw

James Shaw was born at Mosshead, a son of a farmer in Riccarton parish, in 1764. Shaw senior died about 1769 so his widow and young family moved into Kilmarnock. Here James was educated at the old grammar school under the unfortunate John Graham. At the age of seventeen James went to America at the behest of his elder brother David who held a position in the commissariat and through his influence obtained a post in the commercial house of George and Samuel Douglas of New York. He spent three years in their employ, which means that he must have been there during the closing years of the American War of Independence. About 1784 he returned to Britain and in a short time became junior partner in the same firm’s London office. He soon made his mark in the City and moved in wealthy and influential circles.

In 1805 this real-life Dick Whittington became Lord Major of London and in his official capacity led the funeral of Nelson after Trafalgar. Four years later he became a Baronet and from 1806 till 1818 was also a Member of Parliament for one of the London seats. After retiring from the House of Commons he continued as one of the Aldermen of London till 1831 when he was raised to the office of Chamberlain of the City. He resigned this office in May 1843 and died the following October after a long illness.

He was a tall and commanding figure, possessed of great integrity and personal courage. When the mob stormed the Royal Exchange in 1816 Sir James seized one of the ring leaders and also captured one of the radicals flags. He took a leading part in raising funds for the widow of Robert Burns and it was by his exertions that Robert junior secured a position in the Stamp Office and his two younger brothers obtained cadetships in the East India Company’s service. James Shaw was soon remembered by his former townsfolk who subscribed almost £1.000 for the erection of his statue at Cross on 4th August 1848. The statue, of Ravaccione marble, was carved larger than life-size by James Fillans and showed the late baronet in the dress costume of Lord Major of London.

The Royal Exchange
An Article from "Scottish Country Life" - July 1917
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Probably nothing could indicate better the change which has come over the aspect of Glasgow in the last two hundred years than the contrast between the appearance today of the ground now occupied by the Glasgow Royal Exchange and its appearance in 1715 as described in Glasgow Ancient and Modern. And perhaps nothing could better illustrate the successive steps in the city’s development during that period than the story of this piece of ground and the buildings by which it has been successively occupied.
In 1715, the line of the noble city thoroughfare now known as Queen Street was occupied by a narrow country lane which ran between hedges from St Enoch’s Gait, now Argyll Street, northwards to the Cowcaddens. This narrow rustic road was known as the Cow Loan, from the fact that the town herd, after collecting the cows of the citizens in High Street, Trongate, and the Wynds, drove them along the Westergate and northwards by this loan or lane to the grazing ground in the Cowcaddens Parks, and brought them home by the same way in the evening. Some of them, he occasionally brought from the High Street along the back Cow Loan, now Ingram street, and where this joined the Cow Loan, at what is now the Royal Exchange, stood a thatched farmhouse, gracefully ornamented with a huge muck midden on either side. One may picture the last of these town herds, John Anderson, wearing his kilt and with his horn, the sign of his calling, hung around his neck, splashing his way northward along this muddy and dangerous farm road, and doing his best to steer his charge clear of the deeper quagmires in which, not infrequently, a beast would be laired so badly that it stuck fast.

Between St Enoch’s Gait and the Back Cow Loan, the Cow Loan ran through the ancient grounds of the Lang Croft. In 1715, the ground on the west side of this part of the Cow Loan belonged to John Neilson, a "land labourer in Garioch," a locality near Maryhill. It was occupied with a cabbage garden, measured about three acres, and stretched westward as far as the mouth of the present Arcade, where it marched with another set of cabbage gardens which, soon afterwards, became the property of George Buchanan of Auchentoshan, and is now occupied by Buchanan Street. Like his neighbour, Buchanan, Neilson became a maltman and his house, malt-kiln and loft stood at the south end of his property. He died in 1756 and, four years later, his son, Walter Neilson, a merchant in the city, who lived in the Candelriggs, with a view to improving his property, employed James Barrie, a land surveyor, to prepare a plan of the old Drove Road.

In 1766, an agreement was made between the magistrates and the proprietors, by which the Cow Loan was widened to form a street fifty-five feet broad. This the magistrates undertook to causeway, while the proprietors formed pavements seven feet broad, with curbstones, and undertook to make no "forestairs" on the building line. On this building line Neilson laid off fourteen stances, which gradually were taken up and became the sites of elegant mansions. On plots 6, 7 & 8, James Ritchie of Busby, one of the great Virginia Dons, a partner of the Thistle Bank, and one of the "four young men" who were said to have been the makers of Glasgow’s modern prosperity, built the house afterwards occupied by the famous Kirkman Finlay, whose enterprise broke up the monopoly of the East India Company and defeated Napoleon’s boycott of British trade. The site of this house was long occupied by the National Bank. The three northmost plots, numbers 12, 13 & 14, were purchased for £761 7s 9d by William Cunningham of Lainshaw, also one of the famous tobacco lords and another of the above-mentioned four young men.

The story of the founding of Cunningham’s immense fortune is told in Stewart’s Curiosities of Glasgow Citizenship. On the outbreak of American War, the firm of which Cunningham was a partner held a very large stock of tobacco which had cost it something like three pence per pound. When the price rose to sixpence, Cunningham’s partners, believing that Britain would soon subdue her rebellious colonists, determined to sell out. Cunningham, however, was of a different opinion and purchased, for himself, the entire stock. The price ultimately rose to 3s 6p, and the shrewd speculator realised a great fortune. Like his brother merchants, in Glasgow, he proceeded to purchase a country estate and, on the property acquired in the Cow Loan, by that time renamed Queen Street in honour of the wife of George III, he, in 1778, built a splendid town mansion at a cost of £10,000, then a very large sum.

This was described as one of the most splendid houses in the West of Scotland, and it must have formed an astonishing contrast to the thatched farm-steading or cow-feeder’s cottage which it replaced. In front of the house, within the parapet wall, was a gravel space with trees and shrubs, while behind the mansion was a delightful garden with jargonelle trees trained upon the walls. The drawing room on the first floor was a splendid apartment with windows looking east, south and west, its walls and roof beautifully ornamented in antique style with raised wreaths of flowers and other tasteful designs.

Mr Cunningham’s property was bounded on the north by a low stone dyke, separating him from the lands of Meadowflat, eleven acres in extent, which belonged to the Corporation. An unsuccessful attempt had been made, there, to bore for coal, and the ground was let to two gardeners, James Wilson and William Bryce, who grew fruit and vegetables for sale, and had the space thickly planted with pear, apple and other trees. Their tenancy lasted until 1802, when a joint stock company was formed which pulled down their two thatched cottages behind the hedges facing the street, and built on the spot, on what is now the north east corner of Exchange Square, one of the largest provincial theatres of its time in Europe.

On the opposite side of Queen Street, north of the Back Cow Loan, lay the lands of the Ramshorn [pronounced rams-horn]. Here was a large hollow, generally filled with green water, where the boys of Glasgow came to drown cats and puppies, and on the banks of which dead horses were skinned. It was not until the spring of 1781 that the Corporation began to transform this swamp into what is now the stately central pleasure-ground of the city, known as George Square.

Meanwhile events were hastening with Lainshaw’s fine town mansion. Its builder only continued to own it for eleven years and, on the 3rd November 1789, it was sold to the famous Glasgow firm of William Stirling and Sons. They used one of the wings as offices while the rest of the house was occupied firstly by John Stirling who built, for his country house, Tullichewan Castle, near Balloch, then, after his death in 1811, it was occupied by two of his sons. The firm were not only proprietors of the great printing and dying works at Renton in the Vale of Leven but, among other enterprises, were purchasers of the Monkland Canal which they converted into a paying concern by linking it up with the forth and Clyde canal at Port Dundas, and, to provide access to their loading basins at Townhead, they built the thoroughfare still named after them, Stirling Road.

These Stirlings of Cordale claimed their descent from Robert Stirling of Lettyr, in the 16th century, who could trace his ancestry from William the Lion. Their rivals, as chiefs of the name, were the Stirlings of Keir and Cadder and the Stirlings of Kippendavie and Kenmuir.

Alas, the backwash of the Napoleonic War brought disaster to Glasgow. In three months, the business failures in the city amounted to more than two millions sterling; the famous William Hartley was forced to relinquish his great feu of the Blythswood lands and, among others, the firm of William Stirling & Sons had to shut its doors in 1816. The prosperity of the firm was subsequently revived but, meanwhile, the mansion in Queen Street had to be sold.

In 1817, it was purchased by the Royal Bank of Scotland. The Bank made certain alterations, in particular, erecting a double front stair to the new first floor doorway. On the left, the old drawing room became the telling-room of the bank, while on the right, was the cashier’s reception room, and other parts of the building became the cashier’s residence.

The Bank had not been three years removed hither from its old quarters at the south-east corner of St Andrews Square when it had to take measures for defending its premises like a fortress. In 1820, party in consequence of the financial difficulties in the country, the radical Riots broke out. The citizens had taken the precaution of depositing much of their plate and other treasure in the bank, and an attack upon it was hourly expected. The premises were, accordingly, barricaded, a captain’s guard of the Glasgow Sharpshooters was quartered in the wings for more than a week, while triple sentries were posted at the gates, and videttes were kept moving along Queen Street and Ingram Street. The Radical rising, however, went to pieces upon news of the skirmish at Bonnymuir with the Hussars and Yeomenry, and matters quietened down once more.

Still another chapter, the longest in the history of the old mansion, was opened in 1827. Until then, the chief business centre and exchange of the city had been the Tontine in Trongate, near Glasgow Cross. This had been built in 1783 at a cost of between £5000 and £6000 and its coffee-room, for size elegance and accommodation, had been admitted to be the finest commercial hall in Britain. The city had, however, been growing rapidly since then and the business centre of the city had been moving westward with the result that the Tontine coffee-room had begun to be deserted. It was felt that a new Exchange, in a more suitable spot was necessary. Accordingly, in 1827, the Lord provost called a public meeting; a committee was appointed; £60,000 was subscribed and the enterprise was proceeded with.

The old Cunningham mansion was purchased from the Royal Bank, which moved a few yards westward and took up its quarters on the site of the old Glasgow mansion of John Gordon of Aikenhead. The Cunningham mansion was not demolished by the new Exchange company, but a magnificent Grecian portico with lofty Corinthian pillars was thrown out as an entrance on the eastern front and, over the garden behind where the jargonelle trees used to grow, was built the lofty pillared news-room, in which a large part of the commerce of the city has since been arranged. It was while these operations were being completed, on a dull January day in 1829, that fire broke out in the Theatre Royal in Queen Street, a few yards away, and that famous home of dramatic art, including its standard scenery by Naismith and the famous drop-scene by Sir Henry Raeburn, of the Clyde from Dunnotter Hill, was entirely destroyed.

The foundation stone of the new Exchange was laid on the 18th December 1827, with full Masonic honours, by James Ewing of Strathleven, the committee of management including all the best known names among the Glasgow merchants. After the ceremony, the company dined in the George Hotel, when, as reported in the Scots Times of that day, "the evening was spent in the most convivial and harmonious manner." David Hamilton was the architect of the building and the decorative sculptor-work was carried out by James Fillans whose plaster statue representing "Grief" is one of the cherished works of art in the city’s Art Galleries at Kelvingrove. On the 3rd September 1829, the Royal Exchange was opened with a great dinner with 500 guests, at which James Ewing of Strathleven occupied the chair and among the number whose healths were proposed in the spacious manner of that time, were the Earl of Glasgow, Sir Walter Stirling, and Principal McFarlane of the University. In 1836, a constitution was adopted by the proprietors of the 1177 shares of £50 each, and from that day to this, the enterprise has gone on profitably both for the proprietors and for the annual subscribers who make use of the facilities of the Exchange.

During its occupation for the purposes of an exchange, the building has had to be altered no fewer than three times, the roof having been raised on each occasion. For 25 years, the basement, attics and roof of the building were occupied as a central exchange by the National Telephone Company, and upon the telephones being taken over by the Government and their headquarters… [there’s a line missing here - someone is a lousy photocopy-taker!] …owing to the difficulties caused by the war, the scarcity of workmen and materials, and the fact that the work had to be done without disturbing the members of the exchange and the occupants of the offices within the building, the operations were carried out at night and at weekends after business hours. In the course of remodelling, 300 sq ft were added to the floor space of the great news room. A formidable engineering feat, in this connection, was the bringing in and setting up of two additional pillars, 16ft 5in high and 30in wide at the base. The stone of the original monoliths came from the Humbie Quarries near Aberdour, but the two additional columns had to be transported from the famous Blackster Quarry in Northumberland. These were brought in through the front doorway and, notwithstanding their enormous bulk and weight, were set up without [ ? ] of any kind. For this purpose, the floor had to be strengthened. Further, in course of the operations, in order to convert the sunk area of the building into a restaurant, the old walls which supported the lines of pillars were taken down and replaced by square columns of brick, covered with marble panelling.

The completion of the remodelling, which occupied nearly three years, was celebrated on the 24th December 1915, by a luncheon at which Mr W J Chrystal of Auchendennan, chairman of Directors, presided. On this occasion it was noted that the conversion of the floor area into a restaurant under the lesseeship of Messrs. Stuart Cranston Ltd., was a return to the original conditions of the building, in which a tavern was carried on there by Mr Allison, first Master of the Exchange Rooms. MacKenzie, in his Reminiscences of Glasgow records that "many a capital dinner was consumed therein."

In the course of its history, many an interesting event has occurred in the Royal Exchange of Glasgow. Many distinguished visitors to the city have received an ovation in the news-room, and among the names inscribed in the visitors’ book are those of Sir Robert Peel in 1837, when he delivered his great address in a marquee in what is now Princes Square; Napoleon in 1839, when he took part in the Eglinton tournament; and Henson, the notable ex-slave from America, known to all the world as the original Uncle Tom in Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Among notable events: during the Bread Riots of 1848, troops were billeted in the Royal Exchange, their muskets being stacked round the pillars of the news-room; and on the occasion of the marriage of the late King Edward and Queen Alexandra in 1863, a great ball took place on that spacious floor. The building, today, forms a typical monument of the business, enterprise and memories of the Second City.

James Fillans
(1808-52)

Short Biography
Born Wilsontown, Lanarkshire, he originally worked as a handloom weaver in Paisley before training as a stone mason.
Serving his apprenticeship with Hall McLatchie, he carved the Corinthian capitals on Glasgow Royal Exchange, now GOMA , (1827-32), for which he was nicknamed " The Young Athenian ".

Setting up a studio in Paisley soon afterwards, he worked principally as a portraitist producing marble busts of Paisley officials, businessmen and poets including, David Dick, Sheriff Campbell, Prof John Wilson (Christopher North) and Dr James Kerr.

After moving to Glasgow, c. 1830, his success enabled him to move to London in search of the cream of society patronage, 1835-50.

Settling at 8 High Holborn, he continued to receive commissions from his Scottish admirers including requests for portraits in wax of William Motherwell (1835) and James Ewing of Strathleven (1845), and a marble bust of Glasgow architect Burnet (1840).

He later executed the statue of Sir James Shaw, Kilmarnock (1848), and offered a 'transparency' of Minerva Pacific to Glasgow Town Council for use during the Queen's visit in August, 1849.

He also produced a number of funerary monuments each incorporating a marble portrait bust, medalion or symbolic sculpture. Amongst them are his monuments to James Dick, Old Kirkyard, Ayr (1840), andDugald Moore (1841) and Jacobus Brown (1846) in the Necropolis.

A poet as well as a sculptor, he particularly admired the Glasgow poet William Motherwell and, as well as executing a number of portraits of him throughout their careers, eventually produced his monument in the Necropolis (1851) (this has since lost its Parian marble bust, c. 1970s, and its incised friezes of scenes from Motherwell's works, e.g., Halberd The Grim, are decaying rapidly).

At the time of his own death, he was working on two other monuments, the John Henry Alexander Monument, for the Necropolis, which was completed by A H Ritchie , and the monument to his own father in Paisley's Woodside Cemetery (designed 1852), for which he modelled a seated figure of Grief, or Rachel Weeping For Her Lost Children, 1852.

This became his own memorial after being completed in marble by John Mossman in 1854, who also carved Fillans' portrait on its pedestal.

Also a painter, he exhibited at the RA 1837-50.

A portrait of Fillans is reproduced in David Rowand's Pictorial History of Paisley ( p. 28).

Our 'Barr' name came from Scotland within the district of Renfrewshire, which is located near Glascow. The 'Barr' name can be found in records dating back to the early thirteen hundred's. It had different spellings back then (due in a large part to illiteracy) & could be found spelt as Bar, Barre, or as the present day Barr. If memory servers me correctly, I had read that the meaning of the name 'Barr' had something to do with high ground, or hill top. Barr's were from central Scotland and not the highlands, although in west central Scotland, large hills dominate the landscape.

Zion Lutheran Church, Manchester, MD baptismal records: Entry # 1294, page B24, Fehr, John., date born: 2/16/1796, date baptized: 5/15/1796, parents: Jacob and Catherine Fehr, sponsors: John Fehr

The search for the hometown of Christopher Fehr, Sr. began with the following record:

The Parish Register for the Old Goshenhoppen Church (Lutheran) in Upper Salford Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania shows the marriage of Christopher Fehr and Maria Barbara Euchlin on 1 Nov 1757. The marriage was performed by the Rev. Lucas Raus. The article says that Christopher was the son of Hannes and Anna Fehr of Amt Maulbrunn, Wurttenburg, Germany.

Apparently the parish pastor misunderstood Chris regarding the pronunciation of Maulbronn, noting it as Maulbrunn. To verify that this was indeed an error, I checked for a Maulbrunn in Germany with negative results but did find am Amt Maulbronn (more correctly: Oberamt). Oberamt Maulbronn, a part of Neckarkreis (Oberamt equates to a district, Kries equates to a county) lies within the Renish or Lower Palatinate. Christopher arrived in Philadelphia aboard the Palatinate ship "Patience." A partial check of passengers accompanying Christopher (as shown in Church of Latter Day Saints IGI records) shows that they came from either Oberamt Maulbronn or the adjoining Oberamt Besigheim. Armed with that information, it is reasonable to assume that Christopher in fact came from Amt Maulbronn or at least was living in that general area when he left Germany.

In an attempt to find the town/parish within Oberamt Maulbronn a search was started of parishes that had LDS microfilms of their church records. There are 51 parishes in Oberamt Maulbronn. To date the church records of the following parishes have been checked with negative results:
Dürrmenz (includes Oberderdingen, Schönenberg and Sengach)
Diefenbach
Freudenstein (inludes Hoffenklingen)
Grossvillars
Knittlingen
Maulbronn
Mühlacker
Olbronn
Ötisheim
Schmie (considered a suburb of Maulbronn and in the 1970s incorporated into Maulbronn)
Sternenfels

Complicating the search is the very real possibility that Christopher was born in another area of Germany (possibly the Upper Palatinate in Bavaria where there were Fehrs or possibly Switzerland where there are many Swiss Fehrs) and the family moved to Oberamt Maulbronn prior to Christopher's immigration to the United States.
As one professional genealogist told me "you just may never be able to find him!"

Recently, through the computer records of the Church of Latter Day Saints, I found microfilm records of the Evangelical Lutheran church in Freudental. I have subsequently reviewed those records and found a Christop Ludwig Fehr, christened 6 Sep 1753, parents: Johann Mathaeus Fehr and Anna Benigna Catharina. I also found four siblings and the children of one of those siblings. So, it appears this family had been members of the church for sometime. Everything pretty well checks out except that Freudental is not in Oberamt Maulbronn.


I have ended my long quest for the birthplace of Christoph Fehr. (August 2002) A German friend of mine put me onto a German website which listed researcher and they had one for Fehr. I wrote him and after an exchange of letters, he verified the following family tree for our Christoph Fehr:

Johann Christoph (our ancestor) b. 30 Mar 1730 (all dates of birth, death and marriage are in Oschelbronn unless otherwise noted),

Johannes (his father) b. 22 DEc 1691, d. 27 Dec 1756, m. 1 Nov 1712, to Anna Kieselbronner.

Johann Jacob (his father), b. 21 Dec 1666, d. 10 Jan 1729, m. 24 May 1687 to Susanna Harlin, b. about 1665 in Dietelsheim, d. 7 Jan 1725.

Hans (his father,came from Switzerland), b. about 1630, place unknown, d. 24 Nov 1687, m. 1660 to Catherine N. N., born, abouyt 1632, place unknown, d. 27 Nov 1693.

This info came from the Evangelical Church in Öschelbronn, Oberamt
Pforzheim. (Öschelbronn belonged to Oberamt Maulbronn until 1806.

So, finally my patience has paid off. FYI, my source for the above in Germany is:
Erich Th. Lutz, Beim Steigle 7, D 75223 Niefern-Oschelbronn 1, Germany

Christopher Fehr arrived in Philadelphia from Germany on the ship "Patience" Captain Hugh Steel commanding, from Rotterdam, but last from Cowes in England, registered in Philadelphia, Monday, the 17th. of September, 1753. His name was spelled Christopher HAIR on the Captain’s list (A) and Christopher FEHR on the other two lists (B &C).(note: Daniel Rupp, Thirty Thousand Immigrants in Pennsylvania, 1727-1776, Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, MD, reprint 1973, p. 305) spells the name Hehr. It was noted by Strassburger and Hinke that Benjamin Franklin was present to witness the qualification of the immigrants from, this ship. Christopher’s age was given as 21 in the Captain’s list (Pennsylvania German Pioneers, List of Arrivals in the Port of Pennsylvania, From 1727 - 1808, Richard Beaver Strassburger and William John Hinke, pp 526-529,)(Genealogical Publishing Company, Inc., Baltimore, Maryland, 1980)

The following article describes the ship Patience which brought Christopher Fehr to the United States: ( Paul A. Darrel. "Immigrant Ships." The Palatine Immigrant Vol. VII No. 1, Summer 1981, pp 31-32):

"Many sailing vessels made annual runs from England to the colonies. As John W. Heisey has pointed out, only British ships were permitted to land legally at American ports, prior to the Revolutionary War. German immigrants went from a continental port, usually Rotterdam in the 18th century, to a British port, and took passage across the Atlantic from there. Other vessels made the crossing only once.

"None of these vessels was very large. The ship (and therefore three-masted) Patience made annual runs to Philadelphia from 1748 to 1753, with the exception of 1752 when she arrived at Annapolis. Klaus Wurst has given particulars: the Patience was a 200-ton ship, had 8 guns, and a crew of 16. (For comparison, the Cutty Sark, the most famous clipper ship of the 19th century, had a net tonnage of 921 tons, and measured 212' in length, 36' in width, and 21' in depth. Clipper ships carried passengers, but were built for speed and cargo.) In 1748, the Patience carried 122 men over 16 (total passengers not given); in 1749, 137 men, 270 persons; in 1750, 124 men, 266 persons; in 1751, 255 persons; in 1752, 260 persons; in 1753, 108 persons.

"Immigrant passengers were densely packed, with little space, often with poor food and bad water. Under such conditions, disease was a commonplace. Some captains were considerate and kept to the terms of the contract, but not all. It is worth noting that the total passengers on the Royal Enterprise (1750) were given as 'souls'; more often, passengers were listed as 'Palatines' or 'Foreigners', but sometimes as, 'Freights', as if they were mere cargo.

"Upon arrival at Philadelphia, males over the age of 16 were taken to the City Hall for the oath of allegiance, then led back to the ship. Those who had their passage money, or could borrow it, were released. The others were consigned to merchants, and announcements were printed in newspapers. Buyers bargained with the passengers for a stated period of service, and paid the merchant the passage money and any other debts. Families were often divided on arrival, as children were 'sold' to pay the family's passage.

"Passengers who were sick were not allowed to land. If there was infectious disease on board, the ship had to remove one mile from the port. In 1743, the Assembly at Philadelphia purchased Fisher Island, later named Province Island, its buildings to be used as a hospital. In 1754, 253 persons died there, as recorded in the accounts of one undertaker. Burial expenses were assumed by the merchants to whome the passengers had been consigned."

Palatinate, or German PFALZ, was, in German history, the lands of the count palatine, a title held by a leading secular prince of the Holy Roman Empire. Geographically, the Palatinate was divided between two small territorial clusters: the Rhenish, or Lower Palatinate, and the Upper Palatinate. The Rhenish Palatinate included lands on both sides of the Middle Rhine River between its Main and Neckar tributaries. Its capital until the 18th century was Heidelberg. The Upper Palatinate was located in northern Bavaria, on both sides of the Naab River as it flows south toward the Danube, and extended eastward to the Bohemian Forest. The boundaries of the Palatinate varied with the political and dynastic fortunes of the counts palatine.

During the War of the Grand Alliance (1689-97), the troops of the French monarch Louis XIV ravaged the Rhenish Palatinate, causing many Germans to emigrate. Many of the early German settlers of America (the Pennsylvania Dutch) were refugees from the Palatinate. During the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, the Palatinate's lands on the west bank of the Rhine were incorporated into France, while its eastern lands were divided largely between neighboring Baden and Hesse.

After the defeat of Napoleon (1814-15), the Congress of Vienna gave the east-bank lands to Bavaria. These lands, together with some surrounding territories, again took the name of Palatinate in 1838.

Christopher Fehr’s name appears on the list of those who went to Confession at the Indianfield Lutheran Church in Franconia Township, Philadelphia County, PA for the date 1 Apr 1754 and 19 May 1755. The list of Christopher contains the words "at Doelp”" after his name which would imply that he was living at the home of "Hann Nicole Doelp," who was also listed. (Indianfield Lutheran Church, Franconia Twp, Philadelphia, PA, parish registry, 1753-1836)

The Parish Register for the Old Goshenhoppen Church (Lutheran) in Upper Salford Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania shows the marriage of Christopher Fehr and Maria Barbara Euchlin on 1 Nov 1757. The marriage was performed by the Rev. Lucas Raus. The article says that Christopher was the son of Hannes and Anna Fehr of Amt Maulbrunn, Wurttenburg, Germany and further that Barbara was the daughter of Jon. Adam Euchlin and that the ceremony was performed at the Euchlin home. Both bride and groom were said to by Lutheran. (Woxall, Old Lutheran Church Parish Register, 1732-1828 translated by Kral Schild.) (This marriage was also listed in Pennsylvania German Marriages by Donna R. Irish, Genealogical Publishing Company, Inc., Baltimore, MD 1982, p. 539) (Note: Upper Salford and Franconia Townships are adjacent).

The next record of Christopher and Barbara announces the baptism of a daughter Elizabeth, born 1 Nov 1759 and baptized 6 Nov at the Indianfield Church. The sponsor was Barbara Eichel. The next item is the records of the birth of a son, John George, on 2 Aug. 1769 who was also baptized at the Indianfield Church on 7 Sep 1760. The sponsors in this case were George Carl Eichlin (no doubt a spelling variation of Euchlin and probably brother of Barbara, nee Euchlin) and Christina
(Indianfield Lutheran Church, Franconia Township. Montgomery County, PA, Parish Register, 1753-1836)

A third child, Anna Maria, was born 20 Feb 1762 and baptized 9 May 1762 at the Old Goshenhoppen Church. The sponsors were Jacob Denig and Anna Maria. (Old Goshenhoppen Church Parish Register).

A fourth child, Johann Heinrich Fa(umlat)hr, (Fehr), was baptized on 16 Sep 1764 in Heidelberg Township in Lehigh County, PA. The baptism was performed by the Rev. Daniel Schumacher, a Lutheran minister who was active in Berks, Lehigh and Schuykill Counties during this period. He kept a private diary of baptisms and confirmations which still exists. The entry notes that the child was five weeks old last Thursday, calculates to a birth date of 9 Aug. 1764. (Lehigh County was formed in 1812 from Northampton County. The information on this birth was published in 1869 in Vol 1 of the Publications of the Pennsylvania Germany Society. It is also in Pennsylvania Births Lehigh County, 1734-1800, John T. Humphrey, Humphrey Publications, Washington, D. C. 1992)

The following records show that Christopher and Barbara continued to live in the region well into the 1770s:
On 18 Oct 1765, Christopher is recorded as being naturalized in Heidelberg Township of Northampton County, PA
Pennsylvania Land Applications lists Christopher Fehr has having applied for 29 acres in Northampton County, PA on 2 Jan 1766. Heidelberg and Lehigh ware indicate as "later places."
There is a record in Heidelberg Township, Northampton County, PA, of the sale of a 100 acre plantation for 48 pounds by Christopher Fehr to Jacob Mentz (or Mantz) on 27 Nov 1770.
Christopher Fehr was taxed in Northampton County in 1772 (tax was 0/12/0)
(The above entries were obtained by William Cramer from the late Charles TD. Zahn, a skilled amateur, who was related to Christopher Fehr. They have not been verified, by Dr. Zahn’s work is considered reliable. Northampton County was formed in 1752 from Bucks County)

Sometime between 1772 and 1776, Christopher and family migrated to that part of Baltimore County which became Carroll County in 1837. There he bought a track of land called "Wallet", consisting of 108 1/4 acres, from Thomas Stansbury. He erected a home on this property which is described in a land record as a "Hew’d log dwelling house, 2 stys, 28’ x 25’ with a log barn, 50’ x 20’."

The minutes of the Baltimore County Court (1772-1781) show that "Stophel" (nickname for Christopher) Fair, North Hundred of Baltimore County, was included in the list of citizens who did not sign the oath of allegiance to the colonies. One could therefore assume that Christopher was a Loyalist or a least an indifferent patriot. However, an article in the Maryland genealogical Society Bulletin (Vol. 27, No. 1. 1, pp. 101-124) states that the State Assembly noted that many people could be forgiven for not meeting the deadline and various excuses were accepted if the person later professed his patriotism. Stophel Fair of Baltimore County (by name) was among those excused because of lack of knowledge or designs of conniving men. (The record is on page 299 of the Act of 3 July 1780. See Kilty’s Laws of Maryland, Liber TBN (1779-1781)

The list of taxable for the county in 1783 shows a Stophel Fair as the owner of a 180 1/2 acre plantation named Wallett in the North Hundred of Baltimore County. The U. S. Census of 1790 lists a Stophel Fairs (sic) in Baltimore County with five males over 16, two under and two females. Christopher’s name could not be found in the census of 1800 and subsequent census. The name of Christopher and Barbara began to appear in the records of the Manchester Immanuel Lutheran Church in 1783 and continued until about 1805.

Christopher Fehr and Barbara were listed as Communicants at Immanuel Evangelical Church, Manchester, MD along with some of their children as follows:
July 6, 1783, Christopher Fehr, wife, Confirmands: Henry Fehr, Age 18, Jacob Fehr, age 16
August 8, 1784, Christopher Fehr and wife, Barb., Henry Fehr single, and Jac. Fehr, single
June 6, 1785, Christoph Fehr and wife Barb, Jac. Fehr, single
Fall of 1785: Christopher Fehr, w. sick (?), Jacob Fehr, single, Henry Fehr, single, Barb. (?) Fehr, single
Nov 12,1786, Christop Fehr, wife Barb, Henry Fehr, single, Jacob Fehr, single, Barb. Fehr,single
May 10, 1789, Christopher Fehr and wife eh. Barb., Henry Fehr, single, Jacob Fehr, single and Barb. Fehr, single.
Nov 7, 1790, Christoph Fehr and wife Barb
May 22, 1791, Christoph Fehr and wife Barb
Jun 10, 1792, Christoph Fehr, wife Barb, Jac. Fehr, single, Barb Fehr, single
Jun 15, 1800, Chrisph. Fehr and wife Barb

The land records of the county have quite a few purchases and sales by the Fehrs (Fairs) including Christopher and his sons. The last deed involving Christopher was circa 1815 when he deeded the remainder of his land to his sons, probably in lieu of a will.

Christopher and Barbara had nine children: Elizabeth, George, Anna Maria, Henry, Christopher Jr., Jacob, Barbara, John and David. The births of Elizabeth, George, Anna Maria and Henry are recorded in Pennsylvania and the parentage given. The confirmations of Henry, Jacob, and Barbara are recorded at the Manchester Church in MD with Christopher Fehr listed as parent.

In Search of Christoph Fehr ; Following are notes made by Paul Fair (pfair@dol.net (paul fair))

Lineboro, MD.----- June 8th ,2001 from Landisville ,PA. Driving time was appox 1 hr, west on RT#30 to York,Pa, then down I-83 to Exit 2 ( Pa Rt 216 ) to Glen Rock,Pa. Picked up Pa Rt 616 to Lineboro,Md Spent ca hour traveling around Lineboro area, following computer map. Thanks to CS Books for sending a e-mail note to Don Press, with a Land patents map for upper Carroll Co. The roads indicated on Lands patent map and what I could generate from the computer matched. I was very easy to find the farm, "Wallet"( Section #725 ), owned by Christoph Fehr some 200 years ago. The area is hilly ,rolling farmland. Went back to Lineboro, following the dirt road Christoph must have traveled many times. Checked my notes, and asked where Lazarus cemetery was located. They said out of town about a ½ mile turn left (south) on Alesia Rd. Cemetery is located on left, ¼ m down the road. This cemetery is about 3 miles from the "Wallet". I scanned all the oldest stones there, but didn't find Christoph or Barbara. I may have missed it, but I did find Anna Barbara Fair Warner and her husband John. Took pictures of these stones. Went back to Lineboro for lunch. Talked to some local people as to where I could find any additional old cemeteries in the area. They mention a "very old german cemetery"north of Lineboro near Glenville Pa. They mentioned several Rev War soldiers were buried there. Appox. distance 10 miles. Found it, Stone Lutheran Church , at 5152 Stone Church Rd, Glenville, Pa. Indeed, there are a lot of very old stones , in German script up there. Talked to the caretakers wife , I think. She mentioned a fellow named F Donald Miller who has written a book or published something on all the Church/Cemetery families from 1700 to present. Phone 1-717-229-2335 or write him c/o Stone Church, 5152 Stone Church Rd, Glenville ,Pa. 17329. NOTE: I wondered if Christoph and Barbara ever attended church there? If so, there maybe records. Need to check that out. On the way out I found a "large stone" inscribed "Fair" next to the road in a newer cemetery section. Took pictures of stone and several graves, Rebecca and Nova, are they part of the family? Which one ?

October 26th,2001, Second trip to Lineboro, MD. area. Traveled to Aleaisa, south of "Wallet", ca 3 miles, and to Rollie to south east of "Wallet", ca 4 miles and back to "Wallet". Nice drive. Stopped at the farm (Wallet) and meet the owners, MR & Mrs Howard L Humpherys. In talking with Howard, he mentioned the farm was sub-divide in several packages in 1964. His section measures 26 acres, and quite possibly the section where the original house and barn stood 250 years ago. Howard pointed out an old spring house on the other side of the house. He also said he has never seen or found any head stones around the house or around the area. He mention to me that I should stop at the Grain and Feed Mill in Lineboro, that they may know more about old cemeteries in the area. I did stop. I talked to a Mrs Kate Warner, she said the mill, owned by William Warner, has been operated by the family for a couple hundred years and that family are buried in Lazarus cemetery, Lineboro. Conection?

The Rephann Family

The Rephann Family was a very large family who lived primarily in the
Eckhart region of Allegany County, MD. The Rephann name is also recorded
as being spelled Rephorn. A clear explanation as to why the name change
came about is unknown. Some members of the Rephann family retained the
spelling of Rephorn.

The first Rephann to be recorded in census records for Allegany County,
MD is Henry Rephann.

Henry Ludwig Rephann was born a native of Saxony, Germany on 14 Apr
1812. Henry immigrated to the U.S. in about 1833. It is said that Henry
left Germany because of the many wars that was going on at time.

Henry filed his intent to become a U.S. citizen on 22 Oct 1839 at the
Allegany County Court House. He became naturalized on 2 Oct 1842.

Henry married Mary Lydinger, daughter of Nicolas and Barbara Lydinger
on 11 Mar 1847. The Lydinger Family, also from Germany, came to the US
in the late 1840’s. Henry and Mary Rephann settled in the Eckhart, MD
area and had a very large family, fifteen children in all. Eleven of
these children were male. Unfortunately one of their children, John did not
live to adulthood.These children were:
