III.— EARLY SETTLEMENTS Wl' PIONEER INCI-
DENTS.

Most of the pioneers of what i- now ECnowlton
township wore Germans by birth and education, as
well as ha l.i is, bringing with them the forms ami cus-
toms then prevalent in the Faderland." Sonesl
industry was one of tl ardinal virtues of the pio-
neer Germans along the shores of the Delaware.
Their religion was that for winch Luther battled and
suffered. Their love of freedom brought them to this
land of free speech, "flowing with milk and honey,"
where thej could worship the God they revered with-

Church or siate. Among the little band of p
that found their way thither we find the nam. of

is now Delaware Station, where he took up a large
tract of laud, li has 1 n subdivided, sold, and re-
sold, until none of it remain- in tl I
as it is m>\\ spelled name. Mi. Angle's old planta-
tion is now owned by Bowers', Brown, and Cool.

The farm upon which Matthias CummingS lives,

ju-i out from Delaware Station, was first occupied by
Nicholas Albertson, a grandson of Cornelius Albert-
son. Mr. Cummings has lived upon the Farm
1846, succeeding Mr. A 1 her; -on. the original settler.

Jacob Cummings was the original owner of the
farm upon which William 1 . Uberl son n i

Cummings was - eeded by Nicholas Albertson,

then by William !•'., the present owner.

Robeson, another pioneer, located where . Tallies
Hutchinson now lives. Robe-on was succeeded on
that farm by < lornelius Albertson.

The " Robeson Rift," just below where the railroad

crosses the Delaware, derived it- name from the cir-
cumstance which caused the death of Elam Ro
i on of the old pioneer. In 1777 the white Bottlers

upon the oppo-ite -bore, in Pennsylvania, had
driven from their home- bj the savage hirelings of
British gold, and to :tll appearances the settlement
and clearings had been abandoned by both white

man and red-kin. The opportunity seemed to pre-
sent itself to the elder Kobe-oil, together with the

temptation of those idle fields lying just aero - the
river, when thi eman thought it would be a
g 1 investment to cultival ring held-.

Accordingly . be sent his hired man and hi- -on I'.laiu

over to plow and sow, without the slightest idea of
what the harvest would be, other than wheal and

very careful for awhile to keep them at hand, -fastened
to tie- plow while working with that, or to tfa
while putting in lie grain, el until the thing he-
came rather monotonous, and. not thinking that they
losely watched by a few lurking Indian-, they
became careless, ami left their rifles on one side of the

field while they went aero— and back. They performed

this act of carelessness once t< ften. Their rifles

swimmer, plunged into the river, and, by diving and
swimming under water quite a distance, escaped with
his life. The Robeson boy thought to cross on the
rift, ran in that direction, and when about half-way
across was shot by the Indians. From that time to
the present that gravel bar has been known as " Ro-
beson Rift."

Several years before the Revolutionary war, Robert
Allison came to America and settled on the farm now
owned and occupied by M. K. Allen. He came from
England, and was an ardent Episcopalian. He con-
tributed largely towards the building of the old Epis-
copal church down at Ramsaysburg, also for the sup-
port of the rector.

James Ramsay, after whom the hamlet was named,
came from Ireland, and in 1795 settled on the prop-
erty now owned by Mary Van Kirk and James Ram-
say, at Ramsaysburg.

Jacob Brands emigrated from Germany while
youug, located in Bucks Co., Pa., where he married
Dorothy Fiestler, also from Germany. About the
year 1775, at the solicitation of her brother, Aaron
Fiestler, they came to Knowlton township and set-
tled on the latter's farm, two miles north from Dela-
ware Station ; it now belongs to the estate of James
Brown. Their family consisted of three sons and one
daughter, David, the eldest, being fourteen years old
when they settled in Knowlton. He married Hannah
Harris and located on a farm adjoining his father's,
now owned by his grandson, David A. Brands. He
had four sons and four daughters,— Jacob D., David,
James, John B., Mary, Rachel, Dorothy, Experience.
Jacob D. married Margaret Freese, and located on
Paulinskill, near Hainesburg. Rachel married Wil-
liam Blair, and Dorothy married Daniel Silverthorn.
David married Sarah Angle, located on the Bartley
farm, in Knowlton. James married Amelia Angle.
John B. married Elizabeth Leida, owned and occu-
pied the old Craig farm. Rachel Brands, daughter of
the senior Jacob, married Daniel Brown, who was
killed in his mill, near Centreville. Jacob Brands,
the second son of the pioneer Jacob, married and set-
tled in Knowlton. His family was two sons and three
daughters. One of the sons, Daniel B., married Anna
Linaberry, and raised a large family, all industrious
farmers; the other, David I., married and moved to
Paterson. N. J. The daughters married David Wil-
drick, James Green, and a Mr. Cooper. James Brands,
third son of the first Jacob, married Rachel Vansco-
ten, and owned the farm now occupied by his son Wil-
liam, at Warrington. His family were four sons and
one daughter,— namely, John (married the daughter
of Jacob Decker and moved to Upper Mount Bethel,
Pa.), David (went West), William (married Fanny
Faunce), Jacob (married Caroline Mann), and Eleanor
(married James Lisk),— whe were residents of Knowl-
ton. Most of the descendants of the pioneer Jacob
reside in Knowlton, and a very large majority are
farmers. All bearing the name of Brands in this



region of country have desceuded from the emigrant
Jacob.*

The Gwinnup, Kirkuff, and Albertson farms are
now owned principally by John I. Blair. The Pres-
byterian parsonage at Delaware Station was the farm-
house of Cornelius Albertson. The village of Dela-
ware Station is mostly upon the Albertson and Gwin-
nup property. Dr. Gwinnup located here in 1815, and
practiced medicine for many years. With all his ec-
centricities, he was considered a good physician, and
was trusted with many' very critical cases. By his
request his old horse, that had faithfully served him
for so many years, and on many occasions seemed to
be his only true and trusty friend, was accorded the
honor of conveying his remains to the cemetery, be-
tween Delaware Station and Ramsaysburg.

Jacob Cummings was the pioneer settler on the
farm now owned by Charles Hartung. Cummings
sold to Courson, and he to Henry Hartung, who was
succeeded in the ownership by Charles Hartung, the
present owner.

George Ripple was the original settler on the farm
now owned and occupied by Cline Allen, west of the
railroad, opposite Charles Hartung's.

The John Hay plantation was divided among his
heirs, subsequently sold to Vankirk, who in turn sold
to John I. Blair.

The farms now owned by Daniel C. Adams, G.
Hiles, Harrison Blair, A. Wildrick, J. Loller, and
others, in the southeast corner of the township, are
parts of a tract of 1700 acres of land taken up by
Alexander Adams in the latter half of the last cen-
tury. His purchase was made from the proprietaries
of West Jersey.

Isaac Leida, another of those sturdy German pio-
neers, located on the property now owned by William
H. Swisher, a few rods south of the " Knowlton Frame"
church.

Philip Snidor (now spelled Snyder) located on the
farm now owned and occupied by Adam Harris, north
of Centreville. A large number of the descendants of
Leida and Snyder are still living in this vicinity, south-
east corner of the township.

The farm now owned by Henry Teel, a short dis-
tance north of Centreville, was settled upon by Wil-
liam Cool.

William and John Barnes, two brothers, settled on
the creek west of Centreville, taking up the farm now
owned by Henry V. Nyce, also the two farms farther
west now owned by J. Dewitt.

William and John Craig located on the farm where
Edward Averill lives, owned by E. Kirkhuff.

The farm now owned by Benjamin Bartow, near

the village of Hainesburg, was originally owned by a

man named Funger, a German, as the name readily

implies.

The farm of John B. Angle, on the east side of the

township, was locatetl by Jacob D. Brands, and is a f
part of the old Hyndshaw tract, purchased by him in
1729, and surveyed by Samuel Green, deputy surveyor
of the province of New Jersey.

The farm now owned by Philip Beck, north of
Bainesburg, is also a part of the Hyndshaw tract, as
well as tin; adjoining farms of Matthias Beck, R. < lowl,
and Jabez < i. Smith. Among tin' other early settlers
in this vicinity were Gershom Bartow, Jacob Beck,

James Brugler, ami other-.

Howell Ryman located al < lolumbia. He was born
Sept. II, 1790, in Bucks Co., Pa., and was a member
of the "Rifle Rangers" of Hunterdon Co., N. J., in
the war of 1812, when thej were ordered to Long
[aland. When he entered the arnrj his description
was as follow- : Height, 5 feel 11 inches; weight, 155
pounds; blue eyes, black hair, ami regular features;
age, twenty-two. It is said that he put the last stirk
of wooil into the Columbia glass-factory furnace.

In 17">h, during the Indian wars, there was a
meadow along the Paulinskill, near Columbia, known
now as the " marsh," when- at times the colonists

kept quite a number of cavalry horses in pasture, and
daring one of the times a storm-cloud burst up the
creek, near Walnut Valley, and deluged the whole
valley below, drowning the horses and doing also an
immense amount of damage, and trace- of it are still
visible in that locality.

\ i I.NItltAI. ANECDOTE

Somewhere about 1820 there lived in the village of
Columbia a Presbyterian minister named Hartley, an
eloquent divine, who loved a good joke as well as a

good horse. He subsequently ved to Hope, ami

one daj , receiving a call from a few old parishioners,
he, as wa- the custom in those days, set out his decan-
ter and glasses to hi- guests, among whom was old
Gen. Bill, quite a notable man in hi- day. Of course
the " general" must !»■ treated first, and, being fond of
hi- "toddy," he poured out a little more than "the
man of cloth" thought best for a church-member to
imbibe at once, so he called out, " Hold, hold, gen-
eral ; that's fourth-proofbrandy." The general looked
a moment at his host, and then said, " Heavens ! is
that so? Then here goes for a little more;" and filled
the glass to the brim ami drank it with great glee,
while the good old dominie laughed heartily at the
general's appreciation of the quality of his liquor.
