FENSTERMACHER, FENSTERMAKER. Seek to find submitter of FENSTERMACHER, FENSTERMAKER archived query at http:/ regarding a desire for information on William Fenstermacher, son of Peter Fenstermacher and Eva Eilert. From your Email address "" that seems to no longer be an active address, I assume that you are a Fenstermacher, Fenstermaker or some other derivative of the traditional spelling

I ran across your the while searching for Information on Revolutionary War service by Peter Fenstermacher (18) and/or the father (Martin Eilert) of Peter’s wife Eva Elisabeth Eilert. If you should have any information in that regards, I would appreciate it for use in a Sons of the Revolution (SAR) or Daughters of the Revolution (DAR) effort that I am working on.

Numbers in parenthesis () above and in the following narrative are reference numbers in my documentation.

My records show that your William Fenstermacher (106) was born about 1803, the 6th of 11 children of Peter Fenstermacher (18). Peter was born after 1764 in Berks Co, PA, the 7th of 9 children of Philip (3) and Elizabeth (Kaercher or Kercher) Fenstermacher. Philip was born 27 Feb 1713 in Germany and arrived at the port of Philadelphia on 30 Aug 1737 at the age of 20. He died in 15 Jun 1790 at the age of 77 years, 3 months, 2 weeks, and 5 days. Philip was the son of Matthias Fenstermacher (1) who was born in Germany on 24 Sep 1678 and arrived at the port of Philadelphia a year later on 9 Sep 1738 along with two other sons Jacob (2) and William. I am an 8th generation descendant of Jacob Fenstermacher who was born 2 May 1709 and died after the 1790 census. We are unaware of any descendants of this William Fenstermacher (b. 18 Apr 1713?). Matthias was the son of Hans Conrad Fenstermacher who was born about 1650 in Hillscheidt Rhenish Bavaria (near what is now Koblenz, Germany)!
and died sometime before 24 Sep 1678, when his son Matthias was born. I have more details on Philip (3) and Jacob (2), who had 8 children.

My records show that your Peter Fenstermacher (18) was the 7th of 9 children of Philip Fenstermacher (3). Peter was born about 1744 in Berks Co, PA. Peter was married to Eva Elisabeth Eilert in 1785 and he died before 25 Oct 1841 and is buried at Ziegel’s Church Cemetery in Maxatawny Tsp., Berks Co. PA. Eva Elisabeth was born 18 Feb 1767 and she died 7 Jun 1850 and is buried at Ziegel’s Church Cemetery also.

I show that Peter (18) and Eva Elisabeth Fenstermacher had 11 children as follows:
1. (102) Daniel; b. 29 Apr 1789.

10. Benjamin; b. 11 Jun 1806 and d. 16 Oct 1823 and buried at Longswamp Church Cemetery, Longswamp Berks Co PA.
11. A daughter (no other information on her)

My records show that William Fenstermacher (106) was born after Margaret (105) so he was probably born in 1803 and he died in 1845. He was married to Susanna Biehl who died within a week of Williams’s death. They lived in Longswamp Berks Co PA as late as 2 Apr 1832. They are both buried at Job’s Cemetery in Waterloo OH. My records show that William (106) and Susanna Fenstermacher had 10 children as follows:
1. Nathan, b. 22 Dec 1815.
2. Esther; b. 11 Aug 1823.

10. Laura; who married ___Fellers

My records show that Samuel Fenstermacher (368) was born 3 Jul 1833 (not 3 Jun 1932 as noted in you query, and I assume the 1932 date in the query should have read 1832). Do you have documentary evidence of the 3 Jun 1832 date? I show that Samuel died in 1908 at Findley, OH and is buried in Basil, OH. I show that Samuel Married Barbara Hosher (Dau of George and Mary Hosher). I show that Samuel and Barbara Fenstermacher had 10 children as follows:
1. (969) Adelia Victoria: b. in 1857 and d. 1893.
m. John Neff of Baltimore, OH and had 7 children.
2. George V.; (who died at age 10).
3. (970) Frank McClellan; b. in 1860 in Huntington, IN and had two daughters.
4. (971) Ella F.; B17 Sep 1864 and Mar Charles G. Johnson who was b. 10 Mar 1864 I Baltimore, OH and died 30 Dec 1896 at Barnsville OH. They had 4 Children.

6. (973)Lula M.: b. 1868 and married widower Jay D. Brown in 1895 after Meeta’s death. They had 5 children.
7. (974) Maude Estelle: married Jackson D. Whime of Groveport, OH. They had 2 children.
8. Dewitt Clinton; I have no further information on him), but I have to believe that he is your Grandfather because there are no other male Fenstermacher grandchildren of Samuel in my records. Please correct me if I am wrong in my conclusion 
9. (975) Charles H. Moore Fenstermacher: b 1881, and married Mattie Andrews of Elizabeth, LA. They had one child (a Daughter)

I have done this excerpt quite quickly, so if you have any information that differs from what I have provided, please advise and provide the source of your information if you don’t mind so that we can try to reconcile the differences. If you provide your linkage to Samuel (368), I can show you how we are related back through Jacob (2) and Philip (3). On the surface, it appears that we may both be same generation descendants of Matthias Fenstermacher (1).

I have been given a ledger that was kept by my Great Grandfather Forest B England. It has such a variety of entries I am having a hard time finding out exactly what his job was other than a baker at one time and why he kept notes re so many different individuals. Here are some examples starting in 1907. He has itemized work times, jobs,places worked and the wages of GEO CLARK, J.R. GERMAN, W.H. BLAKE all at the HARTMAN STOCK FARM. He mentions the FOUR MILE LOCKS, the PROVINGER DAIRY building burning down. The OHIO & SOUTHERN TRACTION cars running to poultry farm. He mentions in detail the sucide of BENJAMIN F. EVANS who was the postmaster in Shadeville, Ohio for 20 yrs. The accident and eventual death of LEWIS HOOVER. He and CHARLES PLOUTS were driving a wagon and were hit by a street car on the corner of N Columbus and Union Streets. Charles was killed instantly. Has anyone ever heard of the EAGLE MFG CO, HC GOODMAN SHOE CO, FOREST ROSE BAKERY, BRILL'S BAKERY, K&P SECRET ORDER, and WOODMAN OF THE WORLD SECRET ORDER? P&M BAKERY owned by HUFFMAN and MARKWOOD that closed Feb. 26, 1938? An earlier entry dated 10/03/1937 mentions that BEN J POTTS propriator and owner of the P&M BAKERY died at 11:05 am. He mentions death notices of WESLEY P MILLER, HARLEY BROWN, BUD HAYES, JOSEPH MUNDY, CHARLES EAST, BEN POTTS, and ELIZABETH FRENCH. ELIZABETH BORRORS household goods were sold at public auction. Forest had a brother Glenn who at the age of 21 'went bad'. He was admitted to the Athens Mental Hospital. After some time he was released and said to be well and safe. However soon after, he was said to 'be going bad' again. A Mrs. Hall's Mother who was 92 wanted to take Glenn home with her and take care of him and give him a nice burial at the time of his death. Anyone have any family stories about Mother Hall? Does anyone know...are medical records ever open to public view?
