the subject of Indian names his special
study and research, sends us the follow-
ing. The reference to "Standing Stone"
< Huntingdon), will interest our readers
on the Juniata.]

It is very difficult, at the prejent time,
to get accurate definitions of ancient Iro-
quois names, for several reasons. One,
ihe uncertainty as to the particular dialect
in which the name appears; another rea-
son is, the original signification in many
instances has been lost, and Indians of
the present generation, depending on the
sound find great difficulty in determining
the roots and combinations. You are
aware, of course, that the Iroquois, like
other Indian languages, is built up of com-
pound words, and names are always de-
scriptive and losing the legend or tradi-
tion connected with the place they are
liable to lose the signification of the n» me,
especially when incorrectly pronounced.

To one familiar with the French lan-
guage, a copy of Bruyas' Aquiers Ratines
<Mohawk Root Words) will often be of
great aid in determing some names. For
instance, you will find in Vol. XI old
series Penna. archives, on the map the
name ONANTANDAGO south of
OSWAYO and HONEOYE creeks. I
know enough of the Iroquois to see
plainly in the first of these ONNONTE
"hill" and in the termination • 'place." In
reading Abbe Belmont's account of the
Deconville expedition against the Senecas
in 1087, I find him saying "many of the
Senecas fled beyond "the great moun-
tains of ONNONTAGUE which separate
Ibem from Virginia and went to dwell in
the country of the ANDA8TOEZ and
never leturned."

In remembering these two statements,
and placing them together, I make a dis-
covery of a fact, an idea, and conclude
the two names to be identical. In taking
up the study of La Salle's expeditions, I
find in the "Historic" of Margry, i. 878,
the following: "Meanwhile M. de la
Salle continued bis way on a "river which
goes from ea$t to west, and passes by
ONQNTAQUE, then to six or seven
miles below Lake Erie," &c With the
idea fixed in my mind of n Onnontague
near the Oswayo andHoneoye creeks, I



have little difficulty in understanding
what La Salle means, and yet Parkman,
Shea, and all the scholars of the country,
mistakenly, assign the Onontague of La
Salle, to the well known Onondaga, the
great central town of the Onondagas, in
Onondaga county; and stigmatizes the
writer of the Memolre as a blunderer for
stating the fact of a river flowing past
Onondaga from east to west, &c. In foK
lowing up this clue, I find little trouble
in tracing the route of the great explorer,
a matter that has completely baffled all
previous investigators. After ascertain-
ing the peculiar characteristics of Oswayo
and Honeoye streams, I flod some intelli-
gent Iroquois to give an opinion as to the
signification, and sometimes get a signifi-
cant and correct definition.

Another case I know that an Iroquois
tribe was located at present Towanda,
Pennsylvania, at an early date, say 1614.
I know also that an Iroquois in speaking
of another tribe whose language they
could understand, would call them
ATIWANDARON, or RONK, giving a
strong nasal sound to the terminating
sylUble. I know also that the first part
A, is a particle, and the termination,
or suffix, signifies scope or those
and the root identical with the modern
of Towanda. The Attiwandaronk signi-
fying a people who speak so as to be un-
derstood. These names must be studied
by some one having something of a
knowledge of the several dialects and at
the same time having a knowledge of the
striking characteristics of the places.

I will name one more as an illustration.
I find on an early map the name ONO
YUTTA HAGA on the west side of the
Susquehanna just above your place. On
examining Bruyas I fled ONNE'JA,
"stone" (p. 71), GANNIOT (p. 71) "*>
be stuck up" to be set up on end. In
compounding this we take from the first
ONNE and from the second IOT or
NIOT and we have ONNBIOUT "a stone
standing up," or "a stone set tip," the
national name of the Oneidas. Knowing
this and also the fact of a standing stone,
at present Huntingdon, I conclude the
name ONOTUTTA is the Iroquis name
for that place, the HAGA being
people in Mohawk, so we have for the

A BIBLfi AMU FAMILY BIOuBD.

[The Occident, of San Francisco, for
November 16th, 1887, published the fol -
lowing interesting account of "A
Presbyterian Bible," and at the sugges-
tion of a correspondent we give place to
the entire article ]

It was printed at Edinburgh in the year
1785, and bee i me the property of a
Scotch Presbyterian, who feeling the call
to go west, emigrated to America duriug
the middle of the last century. It was
the solace and guide of his life during
the passage of the Atlantic, and while he
made bis way across the low-lying coast-
lands of East Jersey to the hills, like
those of his native heath on the head
waters of the Raritan, where he heard
a language that he understood not

The Dutch Presbyterians of New Jer-
sey had been a full century under British
rule, and English was tbe language of
the law courts, but all the while these
pious people held fast the speech and
customs of their fathers. In this language
they had maintained tor more than fifty
years, the only Presbyterian worship on
this continent, and it had acquired for
them the character of a sacred language.
The Huguenots among them had forgot-
ten their own tongue and nsed only that
of those with whom their fathers had
found refuse. Among them was a
maiden who bore the name and shared
in the blood of tbe French statesman and
ambassador, Jean Bodin, to whom
Queen Elizabeth characteristically ex-
pressed her displeasure by calling him
Mr. Badxn (simpleton).

This Hugenot Presbyterian woman be-
came the wife of the Scotch Presbyterian
man with tbe blessing of the Dutch Pres-
byterian pastor upon them both; and the
little Scotch Bible became their family
Bible, in the days when, as yet, no Bibles
had been printed in America and the im-
portation of them was unusual and ex-
pensive.

But not long did this little family re-
main in the region in which it was
formed. The same impulse which has
driven so many of the people of God



westward, from the days of Abraham
until now, carrying with them the piety
and faith of their fathers, until the West
has almost reached the East, burned in
his bones like fire. Taking his wife and
child and household gear, be journeyed
on until he found a resting place beyond
the borders of the heathen and made him-
self a home beyond the boundaries of
civilization. It was just where the Indian
trail from the Ancient Council Are at
Shamokin rose from tbe green sward that
fringes the Western bank of the Loyal-
sock to reach the ford, where it crossed
the creek as its waters hastened to lose
themselves in the West Branth of tho
Susquehanna.

This pious Scotch pioneer thus pre*
empted for Presby terianism, the soil upon
whicn the flourishing churches of Wil-
iiamsport and the vicinity now stand.

Missionaries and others journeying
westward to Shamokin and Muskingum
or up the Sinnemahoning to Fort Pitt,
were wont to share tbe hospitalities of this
Christian home. The moist meadow
yielded its grasses, and the upland its
grains to furnish sustenance for man and
beast. The only son, playing one day
near the home, found a rare and beautiful
red flower (whose seed the birds had
doubtless brought) which all the Sha-
mokin region learned afterward to know
by the name of ''clover." The forests
were still full of deer, and the streams of
fowl fit for food. The husband tilled his
fields and the wife wove in tbe loom
when her other household work was done.
On the Sabbath they read from the pre-
cious Bible and taught their boy to read
it in like manner. It was almost the only
book in the wilderness home.

But the life of pious simplicity came
suddenly to an end. The Indian tribes
unearthed the tomahawk, and the set-
tlers were compelled to escape for their'
lives. There was time only to mount
fleet horses, and flee fifty miles to the
nearest fort. Two days later, the hus*
band and father returned with an es-
cort of soldiery, hoping to save at least
some part of his worldly goods. His
well-filled barn was a mass of smoulder-
ing ruics; but the house was apparent-
ly unmolested. They entered, to find
themselves at once surrounded by In-

dians who opened fire upon tbem. The
owner of the house was killed by the
second volley, his powder horn burning
by his side. The desolate widow res
turned with her fatherless child to the
place of her nativity, like Naomi, strip-
ped and emptied, carrying with her, as
the only memento of their once happy
home, the Bible they so much prized.
Through manifold hardships, the pious
mother struggled to train her boy in ac-
cordance with its precepts, until at last
she had the satisfaction of seeing him be
come a magistrate, respected and revered
by all who knew him. His hospitable
home became, as his fathers had been,
the hailing place of missionaries and
ministers of every name, and bis ample
hall, the place of their religious assemblies
for many a year. When ho died his
father's Bible became the property of his
youngest son, who prized it highly as a
relic of the times that tried men's souls.

But when that one of the descendants
•of the Scotch pioneer who bears the names
both of their pious Scottish ancestor and
his Huguenot wife, yielded to the never-
ceasing inward impulse, and became a
Presbyterian pastor on the Bay of San
Francisco, the precious heir»loom was
bestowed upon him.

This historic volume is still in its ori-
ginal binding. It will be cherished by
succeeding generations as a sacred me-
mento of God's faith I ulness to his people
and to their seed after them . The family

may fitly conclude this article.

Taverni on Tblrd Mrwt.

* A tavern was kept on the north corner



of Third and Chestnut streets many years
ago by a Mr. Heckendorn and others,
llie house was a large two-story log
weather boarded one. The stable was on
Third street, of frame, with brick pillars
supporting the roof, where the open sheds
were. As was usual, this house was pop-
ular for dancing on "Fair" days.
The writer's recollection of this location
was when Samuel Bryan, sen., resided
there. The house then was considerably
above the pavement, say five or six feet,
the street being graded at some time. The
stable was then used by Mr.. George
Wolfersberger (brother of Philip) as a
livery.

The "Globe Inn" was a large white
frame two story tavern on the east cor-
ner of Third and Walnut streets. The
stable was a large frame building on
Third street painted red. It was kept by
Charles Gleim at an early day, and had
several landlords afterwards, among them
being John Chase, whose daughter was
the first wife of William Park hi 11. The
Opera House now stands on this property.

The "Eagle" Inn was built and kept
by John Buffington, at the west
corner of Third and Walnut streets,
about 1821. Mr. Buffington only lived
there a short time until he unfortunately
became financially involved, and the
house was purchased by Jacob M. Halde-
man, who built an addition to it on Wal-
nut street Matthew Wilson, from Cham-
bersburg, succeeded Mr. Buffington in
1828. The latter was considered the
prince of landlords, and had a great repu<«
tation. This hotel was a stage house for
Slaymaker's "Good Intent Line" of
coaches, which ran from Pittsburgh to
Philadelphia, via Carlisle, Lancaster, &c.
The stable of the hotel was a brick build-
ing on the corner of Locust street,having
the gable end on Third street. The stables
or th» stages were on the corner of Wal-
nut and Fourth streets, Wilson's hotel
was the resort of most of the prominent
men of the State. He continued here
until 1838, when he moved into the large
and spacious hotel on Market and Third
streets, erected by him, now the L->chiel."
Messrs. George Prince, Henry Omit and
William G. Thompson succeeded Mr.
Wilson. The new post office is upon the
site.

THE CUMBERLAND YALLBY.



OwmtxthntUmmto Its BtograpMcml History*



Alexander, John.

John Alexander was born about 1750 in
Cumberland county. He was a farmer by
occupation. When the war of the Revolution
broke out, he became an active participant,
and was in service during the Jersey cam-
paigns of 1776 and 1777. He com-
manded a company in 1778 on
the expedition against the In-
dians on the West Branch, and was a brave
and useful officer. After the war closed he
was commissioned an officer of the militia,



and rose to the rank of coloneL He died at
his farm in West Pennsboro' township, Cum-
berland county, on the 4th of August, 1804.
The Gazette thus alludes to his character:
"He lived universally beloved, and his loss
to society is much lamented for his character
in every relation, and throughh the various
scenes of life was upright and unexception-
able. "



Armstrong Joseph.

Joseph Armstrong, son of Joseph and
Jennett Armstrong, was born in 1739 in the
Cumberland Valley, his parents having been
among the first settlers. Next to his rela-
tive, Gen. John Armstrong, he was the most
prominent man west of the Susquehanna
during Provincial times. From 1752 to 1755
he represented his county in the General As-
sembly, but refused to serve longer on account
of the Indian incursions following the defeat
of Braddock. He accepted the commission
of captain in the service and during the
French and Indian war was a brave ranger.
He was under Forbes and Bouquet during
their expeditions westward, and rendered im-
portant aid. As would naturally be expect-
ed, when the war of the Rovolution began he
took an active part in the struggle, and was
colonel of the Fifth Battalion, Cumberland
County Assoeiators, in 1778. He was at
Trenton and Brandywine and Germantown.
At the close of the war he retired to his farm
in Hamilton township, now Franklin county,
where he died on the 29th of August, 1811,
and his remains rest within the shadows of
Rocky Spring church, of which he was a
member and a ruling elder.



Findlay, John.

John Findlay, eldest child of Samuel
Findlay and Jane Smith his wife, was born
near Mercersburg, Cumberland, uow Frank-
lin county, March 31, 1766. Although only
in his tenth year when the War of the Revo-
lution began, before its close he was, al-
though a mere stripling, iu active service on
the frontiers. He became quite prominent in
public affairs, although he declined office in
favor of his brother William, Governor of
Pennsylvania, and U. S. Senator, until 1819
when he consented to be nominated for Con-
gress, to which he was elected three terms.
He died at his residence in Franklin county
November 5, 1838, and is buried at Falling
Spring church graveyard.

TOMB STONE RECORDS



Of Shell's Lutheran mmd Reformed Church.

[In East Hanover township, Dauphin coun-
ty, Pa., to the left of the Jonestown road
from this city, on a bluff near Earlysville, or
more familiarly to the old citizens, Shells-
ville, stands Shell's Church, of the Lutheran
and Reformed denomination, a frame struc-
ture, painted white, with spire, so that it
can be seen from all directions. This
church was organized and built in 1821,
drawing its membership from Bindnagle's
and -Wenrich's (Linglestown). The place
was first started in 1821 by Major John
Shell, a son of Martin Shell, (1737-
1774) and Catharine Diffenbach (1739-
1817). He was a gunsmith by occupation,
having learned his trade with his father,
who resided near Shoop's church, in Lower
Faxtang township, where he is buried.
His father manufactured guns for the
Provincial Government prior to his death.
We recently visited the vicinity of Shell's
church and spent a few hours copying the
tombstones, which we deem worthy of preser-
vation in these columns. Some of tho dead
were buried on farms, but when the church
'was organized and a graveyard attached were
reinterred in this beautiful enclosure.
