2. Abraham2 Detrick (John, #4) was born on 7 Jul 1814 at Greenmount, Rockingham County, VA.4 He married Mahala Judy (see #3) on 13 Jul 1839 at Hardy County, VA.5 He died on 21 Nov 1891 at Allen County, OH, at age 77. He was buried at Sugar Creek Cemetery, Bath Twp., Allen County, OH.6

Abraham Detrick. No. 436. Fourth Generation. 435. 1) Abraham Detrick, born at Greenmount, Rockingham Co., Va., July 7, 1814, died Nov. 21, 1891. Mahala Judy, born March 1, 1816, died Feb. 17, 1895. They were married July 13, 1839. Brethren. Bradford, Ohio.
Greenmount (note spelling as on the map) and Edom were in Rockingham County VA very close to Singers Glen in the Linville District. If you have access to A History of Rockingham County, Virginia -- Wayland, you will find a 1912 map opposite p. 198 that shows these two locations. I could not find them on a 1992 state map of VA, so I suppose they no longer exist or are too small to have a post office.

My notes indicate that Abraham lived in Rockingham Co. for about six years after he married, then moved to Hampshire Co. about 1845, where he lived for about 12 years. Around 1858 they moved to Randolph Twp, Montgomery Co., Ohio. In 1858 they belonged to Salem Church. Around 1876 they moved near Bradford, Ohio. About 1881 they belonged to Oakland Church.
from Carole Kepes (NXMK16A) 9:36a 11/24/1996 Prodigy mail.
Abraham Detrick, father of John J., was born in Rockingham County, Virginia, July 5, 1818, was reared a farmer's boy and naturally adopted that vocation as his own. In Hardy County, Virginia, he married Mahala Judy, who was born in Hardy County, May 1, 1816. Mr. Detrick lived in Rockingham County for about six years after he was married; then removed to Hampshire County where he lived for about 12 years, coming in 1856 to Ohio and settling in Montgomery County on a farm adjoining that now occupied by his son. After residing in Randolph Township for about 20 years, he lived in Darke, Auglaize, and Allen Counties the remainder of his life, dying in the latter county in 1892 at 78 years of age. He was a devout member of the German Baptist Church and was an elder therein for many years.[given dates of birth, 1818, and death, 1892, are separated by about 74 years, not the 78 years as noted in text - transcription error or as printed in publication?].
from the Cent. Bio. of Dayton and Montgomery County, p.955,
as copied in Carole Kepes letter postmarked 8 Feb 1997.
p.219: Some years before 1881, Abraham Detrick moved from Virginia to near Dayton, Ohio. About 1881 he moved to Oakland Church and made his home with his son-in-law, Daniel Miller. (Oakland or Harris Creek Church) p.241: In 1858 to Salem Church came Abraham Detrick from Rockingham Co., Virginia. p.429: Abraham Detrick, born Rockingham County, Virginia, July 7, 1814, moved to Hampshire County, West Virginia, about 1845. He came to Ohio in 1858. After 23 years, he moved to Clarke County, then Auglaize County, and finally to Allen County until he died November 21, 1891. He is buried in Sugar Creek Church cemetery.
Abraham apparently had financial failures before he left Virginia. He loaded his household effects on a one-horse wagon and started west. When his cash ran out, he stopped and worked until they could continue. On reaching Ohio, his ability as a minister lead the Brethren to assist him to good farms as a tenant. His son, John, married Catharine, oldest daughter of Elder John Smith.

Generation Four

8. John4 Detrick was born circa 1750.35 He married Barbara Sites (see #9), daughter of George Sites. He died in 1825.36

John Detrick.
name: John (Teterig) Detrick (Dietrich) from LDS FHC Ancestral File.>
The Detrick (Dietrick, Teterick, Teter) Family.
John Detrick came rather late to the South Mill Creek Valley, but the Brethren affiliation of the family seems to be firmly established from records of descendant families and family tradition. It is believed that John Detrick, whose wife was Barbara Sites, daughter of George Sites, moved to the area around 1785 with his father-in-law, establishing himself in the South Mill Creek Valley. He did not purchase land, however, until June 14, 1809 when he acquired 103 acres June 14, 1809 from a member of the Dunker Eyman family.
John Detrick lived for a while in Maryland before he or his son John moved to Hardy County. We learn this from the fact that some of his children were born in Maryland and the fact that his name is found on the land records of Frederick Co., Md., later Washington County. In Maryland, he was associated with Brethren Conrad Fox and the Stuckeys. Conrad Fox in turn was linked with the Brethren Snyder and Miller families. Conrad Fox was naturalized in April 1767 with Michael Bauer, Michael Miller, Stephen Ulrich, Jacob Stutzman, Michael Sights (Sites), and Simon Stuckey. John Deiter of Berks Co., Pa., had been naturalized Mar. 29, 1755. He On May 6, 1766, John Tetowick (Detrick) of Frederick Co., Md., sold forty-five acres of land to Conrad Fox (K. 515-517). The parties to the agreement "acknowledged" their action rather than taking an oath. Also on May 6th, and recorded immediately following the Tetowick and Fox record, is the record of land transfer from Jacob and Simon Stuckey. It seems obvious that these parties had come to the courthouse together to take care of the transfers described above.
Who is the John Tetowick described above? At present, the answer cannot be firmly established, but the author suggests that further research may reveal that he is the minister described by Morgan Edwards who was the assistant to Nicholas Martin of the Conococheague congregation. [footnote 86: This hypothesis must wait for proof before being accepted.] Morgan Edwards gave his name as "John Titer," a common rendition of the name Teterick and Detrick. The belief that John Teterig (Detrick) of Hardy County is the same person or the son of John Titer is quite plausible bcause of the Brethren connection and because of the circumstantial connections between the families of Stuckey and Tetowick in the land records. He On South Mill Creek, John Detrick (Tederig) was a close neighbor of George Sites and Valentine Cooper south of Dorcas. Their location was in the heart of the South Mill Creek Dunker settlement not far from the Landes, Judy and Eyman homes. Many of the Sites were later associated with the Reformed Church where their names appear on the records.
Little information is known about the religious life of John Detrick, but more is known regarding his children. The will of "John Teterig" was written on April 13, 1822 and probated on July 11, 1826 (Bk. 4, 119). It names his wife Barbara and children Daniel; Jacob (who married first Mary Magdalene Sites); [footnote 87: Jacob is said to have married twice. The marriage record book (Moorefield Courthouse, p. 4), describes a marriage of Jacob Detrick (whose mother was Mary Snyder) to Lena Halterman. This marriage was performed by Dunker minister, Celestine Whitmore on Sept. 29, 1856. It is not certain that these two Jacobs are the same person.] John; Philip (who married Elizabeth Crites); Adam (who married Sarah Coffman); Peter (who married Susanna Coffman); Mary (who married Jacob? Crites); Catherine; Barbara; and Susanna (who married Henry Vanmeter). He Of the above, Peter Detrick, born Sept. 18, 1797 and died in Logan Co., OH, July 23, 1867, was a farmer and a German Baptist minister (Kintner papers). Jacob Detrick became associated with the Reformed Church. Philip and Elizabeth Crites Detrick were certainly Brethren, for an obituary notice published in the Vindicator [undrln] (FOBG, Feb. 1981), gives the name of Elizabeth (Crites) Detrick, wife of Bro. Philip Detrick, born in Hardy County, Jan. 9, 1791, died June 9, 1877, and describes her as "a faithful member of the German Baptist Brethren Church" for 63 years. She was the mother of twelve children. Other descendants may have been Brethren as well, but information regarding them is not at hand. He Emmert F. Bittinger, Allegheny Passage Churches and Families West Marva District Church of the Brethren 1752 - 1990. Camden, Maine: Penobscot Press, 1990, p. 125, 126.
John Detrick(Teterig).
It is not known that John Detrick was a minister. If our hypothesis is correct that John is a son of John Teter of Washington Co., Md., mentioned by Morgan Edwards as a ministerial assistant to Nicholas Martin in the Conococheague Church, it is plausible to suggest that he may have been a minister. Until documented, this statement is unconfirmed.
