51 "Johannes Spangler,the Elder, came to the Port of Philadelphia, August 17, 1731, from the Palatinate, in the ship "Samuel" Hugh Piercy, Master, was no exception to the rule. He and his descendants have had their full share of the solid, every-day work in making the Commonweaalth what it is." (Source - "Commemorable Biographical Record of Central Pennsylvania", Volume 1, Beers & Co., 1898.)

It would appear that Johannes Spangler, the elder, had a son named Johannes married to an Elizabeth nee unknown in 1797 based on the following. "Col. Jackson Levi Spangler, the sixth generation from Johannes, the elder, is the eldest son of John Spangler and Annie Berger, and was born in Adamstown, Snyder County, Pennsylvania, September 27, 1849." (Source - "Commemorable Biographical Record of Central Pennsylvania", Volume 1, Beers & Company, 1898). I believe Johannes Spangler, the elder, is the father of Johannes Spangler married to Elizabeth nee unknown and have elected to treat it as such pending further research and documentation.

The first Merovingian ruler was Clovis I, who enlarged his kingdom to include most of present-day France and part of Germany. The last strong Merovingian monarch was Dagobert I, who ruled from 629 to 639. Under his successsors the Frankish kingdom became dencentralized. Royal power gradually gave way to the noble families, the most importnat of which was the Carolingian.

58 "Since we know that Balgair was occupied by James Galbraith from before 1593 till 1628 and as we see John Galbraith in 1654 getting a new tack of his old family home for the rest of his life, there seems to be little doubt that John Galbraith was the son of James Galbraith in Balgair (1593). And it therefore follows that the father of James Galbraith, the entailer, was also a son of James Galbraith in Balgair (1593), and was, evidently, the Robert Galbraith in Hilton of Balgair, mentioned indeed on page 231 of "Strathendrick" as a son of James Galbraith in Balgair, but there given, erroneously, as an ancestor of the Galbraiths in Hill of Balgair. (It should be noted that Hilton, or Haltoun, was a part of Easter Balgair and not to be confused with Hill of Balgair. "Strathendrick," p. 30.)
James Galbraith in Balgair (1593) is said, probably, to be a son of Robert Galbraith, "brother german of the late Andrew Galbraith of Gylcruuch." This is evidently correct, and is supported by the following evidence. James Galbraith in Balgair and Andrew Galbraith in Tomdarroch are mentioned many times together. They both appear as being implicated along with others in the slaughter of Robert Lindsay (1533-94) (vide, "Strathendrick," p. 232); and again in the Register of the Privy Council there is this entry:—Caution in £2,000 by Robert Galbraith of Culcreuch as principal and Alexander Seyton of Gargunnok as surety for him (that he would not intercommune with any of the surname of Buchanan, Macgregor or Macfarlane, fugitives from the laws for criminal causes). The bond was presented for registration by Francis Galbraith, "Panniter" to his Majesty, as procurator for the parties and subscribed at Gargunnok, 18th May, 1593, before James Galbraith in Bolgair, Andro Galbraith in Tomdarroch, William Galbraith, Steward in Culcreuch, and George Auld, minister and notary public.

All this points to the fact that James and Andrew were brothers. But Andrew was son of Robert Galbraith in Tomdarroch, the brother of Andrew Galbraith, the laird of Culcreuch, and, therefore, James Galbraith in Balgair was also son of Robert Galbraith. (I do not agree that James was also the son of Robert. Additional work will need to be done on this.)

To sum up the evidence, it seems clear that the beneficial occupancy of Balgair, which from before 1534 had been with John Galbraith (I4292) in Balgair, and thereafter with his son Humphrey Galbraith (I4253) until 1578, passed after that date to James Galbraith, the brother of Andrew Galbraith in Tomdarroch who married Humphrey's widow (I4254), and who was a son of Robert Galbraith, a brother of the laird of Culcreuch.

Andrew in Tomdarroch and James in Balgair had probably at least one other brother — William Galbraith in Frew. In 1614, there is a summons at the instance of William Galbraith in Frew against James Galbraith in Balgair for debt.

James Galbraith was alive on 11th January, 1628, as, on that date, there is a summons by James Galbraith in Balgair against Andrew Cunningham and others. But, in 1629, in the Register of Sasines for Stirlingshire, there is mentioned a William Galbraith in Frew, son and heir of William Galbraith in Balgair. So it seems that James Galbraith in Balgair must have died about this time, and that his brother William took over the occupation of Balgair.

It is not known exactly when Mr. John Galbraith had his first tack of Balgair but as noted above he had his tack renewed in 1654.It is clear, therefore, that James Galbraith, writer in Edinburgh, was closely connected with the lands of Balgair, and was a descendant of the Galbraiths of Culcreuch, and that when he bought this portion of the old barony of Ballindalloch in 1687, he did not come to the district as a stranger."

59 "Sir Annesley Stewart, born 1725, was a banker in Dublin. He married (1) [license Oct. 21, 1754) Sarah Moore of Drumbanagher, County Armagh. Sarah was a first cousin to James Caulfield, first earl of Charlemont, County Tyrone, who had his hand in on government graft [politics] and took Mr. Stewart in as collaborator. For 30 years Sir Annesley-he liked that title-sat in the Irish house of commons as a representative of Caulfield's borough of Cbarlemont. He, "of Dublin," married (2) (license Mar. 29, 1769) Judith Tucker of St. Mary's parish, Dublin. After the death of his nephew in 1768 and of Lord Blessington in the following year, Annesley put in a claim to the baronetcy as next in line of male descent from the first Sir William, and it was allowed, and he was knighted. Whether or not he was really the next in order of descent cannot be proved by this transaction: it merely indicates that he was foremost in political pull and the mazuma that makes it click. In 1770 he bought the Rathmelton and Fort Stewart properties for L27,000 when these were sold to pay Lord Blessington's debts. He died in 1801 and was succeeded in the baronetcy by his son."

60 "Sir William Stewart, born in Ireland about 1672, was, as a youth, through the siege of Londonderry. He became the fourth baronet and second Viscount Mountjoy on the death of his father in 1692. He took to a military career, but exploits attributed to him by some biographers, such as his having served as an officer in an English regiment in Spain during the war of the Spanish succession and taking part in the battle of Almanza in 1707, have been claimed, with good reason, for a different William Stewart. He married Nov. 23, 1696, Anne Boyle, daughter, and at length heiress, of Murrough Boyle, first Viscount Blessington, son of Archbishop Michael Boyle.'This marriage brought into the Stewart family the great estates of this branch of the Boyle family in Hampshire ,England, and in Wicklow and Kildare counties, Ireland, with the family seat at Blessington House, 12 miles from Dublin. Sir William Stewart, Lord Mountjoy, died Jan. 10, 1727, in London, and was buried at Silchester, Hampshire. His widow Anne married John Farquharson. She died Oct. 27, 1741, at Calais. Sir William and Anne had five sons and four daughters, all of whom but two died in infancy." (Source - Stewart Clan Magazine, Tome H, Volume 37, Number 7, January 1960)  Stewart, Sir William (I1355)

62 "The crusades were the West's belated response to the Muslim conquest of fully two-thirds of the Christian world. While the Arabs were busy in the seventh through the tenth centuries winning an opulent and sophisticated empire, Europe was defending itself against outside invaders and then digging out from the mess they left behind. Only in the eleventh century were Europeans able to take much notice of the East. The event that led to the crusades was the Turkish conquest of most of Christian Asia Minor (modern Turkey). The Christian emperor in Constantinople, faced with the loss of half of his empire, appealed for help to the rude but energetic Europeans. He got it. More than he wanted, in fact. Pope Urban II called the First Crusade in 1095. Despite modem laments about medieval colonialism, the crusade's real purpose was to turn back Muslim conquests and restore formerly Christian lands to Christian control. The entire history of the crusades is one of Western reaction to Muslim advances. As it happened, the first Crusade was amazingly, almost miraculously, successful. The crusaders marched hundreds of miles deep into enemy territory and recaptured not only the lost cities of Nicaea and Antioch, but in 1099 Jerusalem itself.

The Muslim response was a call for jihad, although internal divisions put that off for almost fifty years. With great leaders like Nured-Din and Saladin on the Muslim side and Richard the Lionheart and St. Louis IX on the Christian side, holy war was energetically waged in the Middle East for the next century and a half The warriors on both sides believed, and by the tenets of their respective religions were justified in believing, that they were doing God's work. History, though, was on the side of Islam. Muslim rulers were becoming more, not less powerful. Their jihads grew in strength and effectiveness until, in 1291, the last remnants of the crusaders in Palestine and Syria were wiped out forever.

But that was not the end of the crusades, nor of jihad. Islamic states like Mamluk Egypt continued to expand in size and power. It was the Ottoman Turks, though, that built the largest and most awesome state in Muslim history. At its peak in the sixteenth century, the Ottoman Empire encompassed all of North Africa, the Near East, Arabia, and Asia Minor and had plunged deep into Europe, claiming Greece, Bulgaria, Albania, Hungary, Croatia, and Serbia. Under Suleiman the Magnificent the Turks came within a hair's breadth of capturing Vienna, which would have left all of Germany at their mercy. At that point crusades were no longer waged to rescue Jerusalem, but Europe itself. Christendom had been shrinking for centuries. The smart money was all on Islam as the wave of the future.

Of course, that is not how it turned out. But surprisingly the rise of the West was not the result of any military victory against Muslims. Indeed, the Ottoman Empire survived largely intact until the end of World War I. Instead, something completely new and totally unpredictable was happening in Europe. A new civilization, built on the old to be sure, was forming around ideas like individualism and capitalism. Europeans expanded on a global scale, leaving behind the Mediterranean world, seeking to understand and explore the entire planet. Great wealth in a commercial economy led to a fundamental change in almost every aspect of Western life, culminating in industrialization. The Enlightenment turned Western attention away from Heaven and toward the things of this world. Soon religion in the West became simply a matter of personal preference. Crusades became unthinkable - a foolishness of a civilization's childhood."

63 "The Delkenheim records do not show the children of Johann Michael. This is understandable considering the chaos caused by fires, plagues, no pastors, and no food, etc., during that era. It is truly a wonder that any records survived. Also, many Germans during that period spent some years in searching for new homes in the impoverished Rhineland before they emigrated to America.

It was undoubtedly Johann Michael's son by the same name that appears in the American records. Johann or John was in many instances, the old German way of meaning Younger or Junior. When the older person died, the John was then dropped and the child so-named went by his second name. None of the records referred to indicate when Johann Mchael came to America. His name does not appear on any of the available ship lists. Such lists have been found incomplete and inaccurate and many of course have become lost through the years."

65 "The Laughlins, originally LAUGHLIN from Scotland, settled in Ireland, where they are of record in county Down. One branch of that family came to the United States in 1819, settling in western Pennsylvania. A brother, James Laughlin, came in 1829, settling in Pittsburgh and founding the Laughlin family famed as iron masters. The name is a shortened form of MacLaughlin and under that name formed a part of the clan Owen in Scotland. In Ireland the name became McLaughlin and in this country Laughlin in some instances.

(I) The great-grandfather of Samuel Scott
Laughlin, of Clarion, Pennsylvania, was a Scotchman, who settled in Ireland, where he reared a family.

(II) His son, the father of James Laughlin, settled in eastern Pennsylvania. Prior to the year 1800 he married and left issue, including four sons, all of whom settled in Clarion county.

(III) James Laughlin, son of the Emigrant Laughlin, was born in eastern Pennsylvania in 1802. He grew to manhood in his native county, coming to Clarion county, Pennsylvania, in 1834, settling at Strattanville, where he remained two years. He then located at Leatherwood, the same county, there engaging in mercantile business, also owned and operated a mill. He was a man of good business ability, conducting his various enterprises successfully until his death, March 7, 1870. He was postmaster at Leatherwood from the establishment of the office in 1840 until his death. He first started in merchandising in 1839. in partnership with Samuel John and Stewart Wilson, whose interests he purchased in 1846. The mill built by the Wilsons in 1839 he purchased from them February t), 1855. In 1856 he built the first blacksmith shop in the village. He was a liberal, upright, courteous gentleman and held the confidence of all who knew him. The mill, store, postoffice and blacksmith shop became the business center of not only the village, but of the surrounding country, and for his industry and energy in establishing and developing these interests he deserved great credit. After 1850 the store was operated with a partner, Manasseh Arnold, who came with Mr. Laughlin as a clerk, July 10, 1846: was made a partner in 1850 and after Mr. Laughlin's death in 1870 became sole owner, but later the business returned to the family name, being owned and conducted by W. A. and S. S. Laughlin. James Laughlin was a member of the Presbyterian church and abounded in good works.

He married Susan McKinney...

(The following reference linking Susan McKinney as a daughter of Isaac McKinney is in error. The other information on Isaac McKinney, however, is correct. Note to File -JP Rhein)

... daughter of the Center county family who came to Kisha- coquillas Valley in 1791. Isaac McKinney was the first of the name, coming from Sunbury, Pennsylvania, where his parents settled in 1770. He was a millwright, later a merchant; as commissioned associate judge in 1819; became interested in the early iron furnaces, and died September 11, 1840. He married Jane Fleming in 1794: two of his sons, David and John, became eminent ministers of the gospel, ordained in the Presbyterian faith. From Isaac sprang Susan McKinney, wife of James Laughlin.

(IV) Samuel Scott, son of James and Susan (McKinney) Laughlin, was born at Leatherwood, Clarion county, Pennsylvania, July 29, 1861. He attended the public schools until fifteen years of age, then entered Carrier Seminary at Clarion, whence he was graduated, class of 1878. After leaving the seminary he at once entered business life, beginning as a clerk in the store of his brother, W. A. Laughlin, who was engaged in the general mercantile business in Leatherwood, remaining with him one year. He then entered the employ of D. L. Corbett, a general merchant of Turkey City, Clarion county, remaining with him two years and acquiring a detailed knowledge of the business of a country general store. He then returned to Leatherwood, joining his brother, W. A. Laughlin, and becoming a partner in the firm W. A. Laughlin & Company, general merchants and dealers in agricultural implements. He continued in successful business until 1890, when he withdrew from the firm, entering public life. In 1899, after serving Clarion county as register and recorder for six years, he established a fire insurance agency in Clarion, Pennsylvania, continuing successfully until 1909. Since that date he has devoted himself to the life insurance and bonding business, in which he has made a most excellent record, now holding the position of district manager for the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York.

Mr. Laughlin is a lifelong Democrat, of the sturdy, uncompromising Clarion county type, and has always been active and influential in party affairs. In 1890 he was elected chairman of the county committee and so ably guided the party that year that he was reelected in 1891. In the fall of 1893 he was the nominee of his party for register and recorder, winning a favorable verdict from the voters of the county at the polls the following November. He served most ably and satisfactorily his term of three years, receiving the reward of a renomination and election, completing in 1899 six years of faithful and efficient service in this most important office. He has held other positions of honor and trust in his native town and county. He served nine years on the board of trustees of the State Normal School, located at Clarion; for seventeen years was secretary of the Clarion County

Fair Association; took an active part in the promotion of the rural telephone system and was instrumental in merging the different companies in a union agreement by which they became one system, giving subscribers communication with every part of the county. His public service has been valuable and almost continuous from his first becoming a voter.

He is a prominent member of the Masonic order, belonging to the York and Scottish Rites and active in the various lodges to which he belongs. He is a member of and a Past Master of Clarion Lodge, No. 277, Free and Accepted Masons; a Companion and Past High Priest of Eden Chapter, Royal Arch Masqns, of Clarion; a Sir Knight of Franklin Commandery, No. 45, Knights Templar, of Franklin, Pennsylvania; member of Couders- port Lodge of Perfection, fourteenth degree, and Past T. P. Grand Master; member of the Coudersport Consistory, thirty-second degree, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite; member of Pennsylvania Council of Deliberation, of Philadelphia, and a Noble of Zem Zem Temple, Ancient Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, of Erie, Pennsylvania. In religious faith he is a member of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church of Clarion, and has been an active worker in the church and Sunday school of Clarion county and of his own church for many years, serving as a member of the board of trustees and for fifteen years has been superintendent of the Sunday school.

Mr. Laughlin married, December 20, 1882, Christena C. Kaster, born at Curllsville, Clarion county, Pennsylvania, August 29, 1860, died December 8, 1908, and is buried in Cottage Hill cemetery at Clarion.

67 "Various lines of Galbraiths moved from Scotland to Ireland during the Plantation. Among the earliest was a family from Balgair, a district near Fintry in Scotland and close to the Culcreuch Castle, home of the last Galbraith chiefs. The Balgair Galbraiths were a cadet line of those chiefs. Humphrey Galbraith of Balgair and his wife Isabel Cunningham had two sons, James (born c1560) and John (born c1565). James married Mary Buchanan of Ibert in 1593 and had with her four sons, James, Robert, Humphrey, and William (and perhaps more), and one possible daughter. This James Galbraith of Balgair moved his family to Donegal in Ulster in 1614/15. There is no record of Mary Buchanan in the Galbraith Donegal history. Possibly she passed away before the move to Ireland." (Source – Article by Dave Colwell, The Red Tower, Clan Galbraith Association, Vol. XXX, No 4, ISSN 1059-4264, August 2009)

“The family tree of Lord Strathclyde in Burke's "Peerage and Barontage" indicates that there were at least three Galbraiths from that family who emigrated to Ireland at the time of the King James Plantation. They were Robert, 17th Chief, and James and John, who were sons of a Humphrey Galbraith and wife Isobel Cunningham." The article goes on to state that "....In 1666 William Penn was Aide-deCamp to the Earl of Arran, who was a relative of Humphrey Galbraith's wife, so there is a likelihood that John Galbraith of Blessingburn, County Tyrone, Ireland, lived at Corgagh before going to America with Wm. Penn. Blessingboune was north of Five-Mile Town in County Tyrone. The "Index of Clogher Will to 1888" at Public Records in N. Ireland has the John Galbraith of Blessingbourne Probate 1669. It appears that James Galbraith born 1666, was a descendant of these Galbraiths. He had a son born in 1692 who accompanied him to America. Since relatives were often using the same first names, names such as James, John, Robert and Humphrey, it is difficult to separate the Irish Galbraiths at this time." James Galbraith (1666-1744) is not the son of John of Blessingbourne. (Note to File - JP Rhein)

71 "William Stewart, born about 1665, (Miller shows his date of birth as 1660) was among the volunteers from Britain in 1686 who joined in the crusade to expel the Turks from Hungary. He took part in breaking the siege of Buda, and thereafter he. was known as Buda Will Stewart, to distinguish him from his cousin, Lord Mountjoy. He was captain of one of two companies of Protestants who came to the aid of Mountjoy, in command of the garrison of Londonderry in its defense against seizure by Catholic forces instigated by King James's adherents, in December 1688. He saw considerable service in the war that followed, sometimes called the Revolution, and aided the cause of William & Mary. His home was Fort Stewart, County Donegal, but he was for a time domiciled in Londonderry. He married [by license Nov. 25, 1693] Maria Hopkins, only child of Ezekiel Hopkins, bishop of Derry, by a daughter of Lord Roberts. Mr. Hopkins had been chaplain in Roberts' regiment when the latter was lord lieutenant of Ireland, and "made a private marriage with his excellency's daughter, in consequence of which he was made bishop of Derry." This William Stewart died before his wife, who was living in Londonderry in 1705, probably a widow at that time." (Source - Stewart Clan Magazine, Tome I, Volume 37, February 1960)

He was called Buda Will, from his having fought in the siege of Buda (Budapest in Hungry in 1686. From a younger son, Alexander, came the family of Lieutenant William Stewart of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. (Source - Stewart Clan Magazine, Volume XI-XV, 1933-1938, page 142)

An article in "The Stewarts", Volume VI, by Walter A. Stewart, September 1, 1933, page 374, states "It would thus appear that a very important part of the garrison of Derry during the historic siege was drawn from Lord Mountjoy's regiment. Of the two companies first admitted, one was commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Lundy, stated to have been a native of Ayrshire, and later notorious as the 'Traitor Lundy'. The other was commanded by Captain William Stewart, who was in all probability William Stewart of Fort-Stewart, Lord Mountjoy's first cousin. It is of interest to note that the latter married in 1693, Mary, eldest daughter of Ezekiel Hopkins, Bishop of Derry at the time of the siege, who endowed the cathedral with some fine pieces of plate and a richly carved organ-case, which are still shown with much pride to visitors to the 'Maiden City'".

My source for listing the above William Stewart, married to Mary Hopkins, as 'Colonel of the 9th Regiment' is from "A Family of Millers and Stewarts by Dr. Robert F. Miller, St. Louis, Missouri, August, 1909, page 26". (Note to File by J.P. Rhein)

Will of William Stewart:

Among other things, to his wife Mary, he left 100 lbs. per annum as jointure and certain ornaments.

73 ''The earliest record of Hartmans that I have found is the arrival at Philadelphia, Pa, of one Henry Hartman from the Palatinate in Germany via a ship from Rotterdam, Holland, in the year 1727.

The next record is a will recorded in the Maxatawney district of Philadelphia County for a land holder, Henry Hartman, who left property to his wife Jane, and the children: John, Gertrude and Catherine. The will was proved in 1734 and the wife Jane and son John were named executors. The will was written in German and the name of the translator was given. I have not proved yet that the Henry Hartman who landed in 1727 and lived only seven years was our Hartman ancestor who 'Rode the Boat'.

The next record was from the 'Tohickon Church Records' of a baptism: George Hartman, born 1775, parents Matthias and Catherine (Wagner) Hartman. The sponsor was John Nicholas Hartman, grandfather. This record proves our line back to John Nicholas Hartman in Bucks Co., Pa. The 'Tohickon Church Records' lists four Matthais Hartman children: John Philip (b. 10/3/1771), Anna Maria (b. 11/13/1773), George (b. 1775), and Jacob (b. 1n11778).

George Hartman married Elizabeth Chicoba (also spelled Jacobi) March 20, 1803. Elizabeth was baptized April 5, 1786 (Tohickon Church Records). George and Elizabeth moved to Columbia Co., Pa., near Bloomsburg, and raised eight children: Katherine (b. 12/30/1803), Nancy, Elizabeth, John William (b. 3/5/1807), Joseph, Chicoba, Samuel, and Job. George and Elizabeth are both buried in Bloomsburg. Katherine was the oldest child. John William was fourth or fifth, the oldest son. John William married Susanna Fulmer, presumably from Columbia Co., Pa., on November 22, 1832. Five of their ten children were bom in Columbia Co. Lewis Hartman was the first one born in Toby twp., Clarion Co. John died young. Susanna lived as a widow for nearly 50
years. Both are buried in the Churchville Cemetery." - Heber Rankin with Cecil Smith

GENERATION I: John Nicholas Hartman (immigrant?)
At least 28 pioneers of the Hartman name came to the American colonies from Germany and landed at Philadelphia between 1740 and 1770. One was married into the Benjamin Franklin family! Tradition has it that many of these pioneers were closely related. Each Decoration Day a Hartman family reunion is held at Valley Forge, PA (HIR).

On October 26, 1768, the following Hartman men arrived at Philadelphia, Pa. and took the Oath of Allegiance: Johann Matthais Hartman, Johann Wilhelm Hartman, and Johan Nickel Hartman. John Nicholas was the father of John Matthais and probably the father of John William.

John Nicholas Hartman married Catherine Trauger. Her parents were Christian Trauger (5/20/1726 - 1/1/1811), a Rev. War veteran, and his wife, Anna Barbara Stein (3/5/1729 - 11/5/1821).

Commemorative Biographical Record: William Stewart Jr...was a farmer by occupation, and became quite well-to-do. Becoming blind, he spent the last twenty years of his life in retirement from active labor. In politics he was a lifelong Democrat and he was a consistent member of the Presbyterian Church. In October 1892 he was called to his final rest at the age of eighty years and two months [incorrect according to his tombstone] and his estimable wife died in March 1867 at the age of sixty-one, both being buried at the Concord Church in Clarion county. Their children were: David, a farmer of Perry township, Clarion county; Amos, an agriculturist of Perry township; William, who died on the old homestead, where his widow and family still reside; and Roslinda, wife of Israel Butler, a farmer of Madison township, Clarion county.

1860 Slave Census of Hawkins Co. Tennessee National Archives and Records Administration Record Group M653, Roll 1282 Abstract by Hallie Price Garner , Dallas, Texas

Many people believe that because Hawkins Co. was hilly, had mostly small landowners, and had a large number of Union sympathizers that it had few slaves. By comparison with many counties in the deep south where a plantation economy was more common, that is true. The 1860 Slave census schedule, taken just before the onset of the Civil War, however, shows that there were many slaves in Hawkins County. The slave schedules do not show the name of the slave-just the owner's name. It does, however, show the age, sex and color of the slave. There was a total of about 300 slave owners and over 1800 slaves. The largest slaveholder was a man whose name appears to be John Bincee. The Tenth District had the most slave owners at that time. The Third and Fourth districts had only six slaves holders in each. Only a few of the owners were large slaveholders. Some districts had very few slaves. This probably explains the low amount of Confederate volunteers in the county during the war.
You will note that often there is not a separate house for slaves (shown by hs column), so one would assume that they lived in the same house with the rest of the family and were most likely household workers rather than field hands. The housing conditions vary greatly from one house for just two people to no separate house for a large number of people. The number of houses provided by the slave owner will help you get a better idea of the living conditions. For the sake of accuracy, I have retained the spelling as it was written by the census taker. Districts in this schedule do not always correspond to those districts in the Free Schedules. The handwritten page numbers are in the order that they are labeled on the film, and are not always in consecutive numerical order. You can follow the printed page number more easily. Abbreviations used are M=Male, F=Female, B=Black, Mu=Mulatto. Therefore, a person listed as 23 MMu would be a 23 year old male mulatto slave, and a 9 FB would be a 9 year old female black slave.

98 A sworn statement, dated April 22, 1893, by Rachel McKinney states, among other things, that Samuel McKinney (her husband) was born in Centre County, Pennsylvania on October 31, 1786. This is in conflict with other information as to the location of birth of Samuel McKinney and the date of arrival of his family in then Northumberland County, later Centre County, Pennsylvania.

In a letter, dated November 26, 1996, Madge S. Andre of Tucson, Arizona, great-grandaughter of Samuel, states, among other things, that Samuel was born in Chester County, October 31, 1876, that John McKinney and Mary Lewellyn had four children, Anthony, Samuel, Mary and Susan and that history is very sketchy on John.

The is a high degree of probabilty that Anthony is the John McKinney, born 1788, married to Mary Magadalene Emerick and who named his youngest son, Anthony. I have elected to treat it as such and have listed it here for future reference. (Note to File - JP Rhein) 
McKinney, Rachel (I2927)
99 About 1803 John and Mary brought their family to Toby Township, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania. They settled on a farm near what was later "Black Fox Furnace". This farm was one of the show places of Toby Township so it must have been a grand farm and John must have been an excellent farmer. John is buried in the lower cemetery near the Concord Presbyterian Church, Perry Township, Clarion County, Pennsylvania. Mary is shown on the 1830 census, but not the 1840 census. There are unmarked graves on John's cemetery lot and a stone marked only "MK". One of these graves may be Mary McKibben.
