PHILADELPHIA, MAY 1, 1900.



David Shultze in J 752.

In our last issue, we left liiin as he
stepped asliore at Philadelphia on the
2Sth day of September, 17:>3, at the end
of the voyage across the Atlantic, a lad
of sixteen. He caiue in the van of the
main body of his Schwenkfelder ^lit-
glieder, who reached our shores a year
later. We meet him, now, after an in-
terval of more tlian eighteen years — a
man of thirty-four. Daring this period
he grew to mar hood, acquired the lan-
guage of his ndiipted country, married a
wife, became a farmer, and established
the business of surveying and convey-
ancing. He resides in Fpper Hanover
townsl'.ip, in New Goshenhoppen,, in the
PerkiDuieu Valley. He is a widower.
His wife, Anna Kosina Beyer, whom he
miirried in 174o, liad been murdered in
1750, by a man in his employ. This hor-
ril)k' crime occurred in tJie night of June
1;;, J7oO, when Mr. Sludtze was absent
from home. The murdeior wao executed
in Philadelphia, November 14, 1750.

The Almanac in those times was a book
of daily reference in eveiy home. 'Sir.
Shnltze not only kept a journal on the
blank j)ages specially inserted for the
pui-pose, but also matle notes in tlie small
spaces between the wf)rds on the printed
pages: very cold; fine — temperate; more
cold weather; etvvas wai-rmer; snow-like;
very cold again; rain gust; very stormy;
than Wetter; fine, but dry; trueb Wetter,
al)er kein Kegen; a great thunder gust;
very hot, storm, thunder and lightning;
much rain; moderate; little snow; very
cold morning; — such as these are the
notes made by liim in tlu' spaces oi the



twelve months of the year. The outsiae
margin of the pages he likewise utilized.
He was, it appears, a reader of the Peiui-
sylvania Gazette, the influential weekly
of that time, and opposite each Thureday
on tiie almanac he noted the number of
the issue of this newspaper — 1204, 1205,
etc.

The year 1752, we may remark in pass-
ing, had but 355 days. In this year we
changed from Old Style to New Style.
SeiJtember was the short month — it had
but nineteen days. The dates ran Sep-
tember 1, 2, 14, '15, and then regularly to
the oOth. Saur, the publisher of the
Almanac, took pains to explain that in
succeeding years the month would have
the usual number of days.

Xow let us see wiiat employments and
what concerns occupied the hands and
the thoughts of David Shultze in 1752.

January 2 to 17, lie bad his rye, oats,
and wheat threshed. On the 10th the
second hog Avas killed. The month being
mild, he was enabled to do surveying for
Henry Huber and Brauchler on the 15tli;
for .Jacob Lantes and Jolm Kindich, on
the Branch, on the 2()th and 21st; and
for Sebastian Zimmerman at Maxetawney
on the 27th. On tlie 2'.ith he went to
Falconer Swamp — on what business he
does not say. Quite a number of pei-sons
of his circle of acquaintances died this
month. He mentions: the aged Mrs.
Walbert on the 4th, the baker at Har-
lacher's, Thomas Potts, Senior; Chris-
topher Haymacher's wife, old Mr.
Schlicher's daughter, Wilhelmina, Leon-
hard Lutz's wife, and the old blind
woman upon the Manor land.



THE PERKIOMEN REGION,



Fobniarv 2 he went to Madetsliy

:Wor-
-prob-

ably Abraliaiu Beyer, his father-iii-law.
(Susanna Wiegner, a well-known maiden
lady of the Schwenkfelder community,
died in Townientsin on the lOtli, and he
attended her funeral on the 12th. 8he
was t)8 years old. On the 2()th Kobert
Ureenvvay was at Hiilegas's. This month
three conferences were lield about quit
rent: on the 4th, a brief one; and on the
17(li and 24th two longer ones were held
\i. Falconer Swamp.

March 2, he records: "We went to
PhilacV'. ;id, Pay'd the Quit Rent, oth,
retui-ned home. Paid £72 for 21]ol
acres for ol years." This explains the
object of the conferences at Falkner
Swamp. The quit rent on the Great
Tract, or German Tract, granted to the
Frankfort Company, had remained un-
paid all these many years. Doubtless
about this time the agents of the Proprie-
tai'ics made urgent demand for the back
rents. David Shnltze, as a man of ex-
perience in financial and real estate mat-
ters, was called in for advice. He went
twice to Falkner Swamp on this business
and there held conferences with Hemy
Antes, another trusted and competent
n)an, and others. Tlie result is given in
Shultze's journal as quoti'd. In the Gash
Book of the Froprielai'ies' agent in I'iiila-
delpliia, the consummation of this busi-
ness — most weighty to the owners of land
of the (ierman Tract — is concisely and
corroboratively stated, thus:

6 THE PERKIOMEN REGION,

Descendants of Anna Margaretha Antes.

Anna Margaretha Antes, the second child of Henry Antes and Chris-
tina EHzabeth DcWees, his wife, was born September 9, 1728, and bap-
tized Octolier 6, 1728. The sponsors at her l)aptism were Hans Wolff
Miller and Anna Margaretha, his wife. Rev. John Philip B(phm, pastor
of the congregations at Falkner 8wamp, Skippack and Whiteinarsh, made
this record of her baptism :

D. 6' 8"" 1728. Anna Margaretha die Taufs zengen waren Hans
Wolff Miller nnd Anna Margretha ehelen. Nentens Anna IMargretha. 1st
gebohren d. 9. 7'"- 1728.

Anna Margaretha Antes was partly educated at Bethlehem, Pa.,
and bcca.me a member of the Moravian commimity. At the beginning of
1748 she left her Frederick township home, never to return. On Januar}'
9, 174o, she was one of the passengers who sailed in the ship Jacob from
New York for London. Count Zinzendorf was in the samc^ company.
She was placed in a school of the Moravians in London to complete her •
education. She married, at Herrnhut, Germany, Rev. Benjamin La
Trobe, a minister of the United Brethren, or Moravians.

From her descendants at present living in Switzerland we have a rec-
ord of the descendants in Europe and America, of Anna Margaretha Antes
