was given by the Franklin in Odd Fellows'
Hall, from which sufficient funds were real-
ized to enable the society to rent and furnish
a room on the second floor of 222 West
Market Street, over what was then Wallick's
book store. Here the quarters of the Frank-
lin remained until April 4, 1S81. On
April 4, 1881, a room on the fourth floor
of Small's mercantile and law building
was rented and occupied. This event was
also celebrated by special exercises and a
banquet. Prof. Thiele's Amateur Orchestra,
at this time connected with the society, and
largely composed of its members, furnished
the music for the occasion.

In June, 1884, the fourth anniversary enter-
tainment was given in the Odd Fellows' Hall.
This entertainment gave an impetus to the
progress of the Franklin, from which it has
at this, date not declined.

In December, 1884, the constitution of the
Institute was amended so as to admit ladies
to full active membership. This was one of
the most fortunate steps that the Institute
had yet taken, as it supplied an element in
its working material that lends an influence
at once refining and elevating in all the
social and moral relations of its member-
ship.

The Institute has at present a list of forty-
five active members, whose zeal, energy, and
intelligence have made their organization
an efficient agency in the moral elevation of
the young men and women of the town.



THE BOROUGH OF HANOVER.

DURING the year 1728, John Digges,
a petty Irish nobleman of Prince
George's County, Md., obtained a grant for
10,000 acres of the rich agricultural lands
which now surround the town of Hanover.
When Lord Baltimore gave this grant, the
land was thought to be in the province of
Maryland. The conflicting claims concern-



ing this land and the difficulties of the early
settlers, are fully given in an article, headed
"Digges' Choice," in the front part of this
work, to which the reader's attention is
directed. Digges' tract extended into what
is now Adams County. A few of the first
settlers were Catholics, but as early as 1731,
some thrifty Germans, the descendants of
whom are now among the most prominent
citizens of the community, came and took
possession of most'of this fertile land.

The following is a copy of one of John
Digges' bonds to give at some future time
an absolute title to the land which was
granted him:

Know all men by these presents, that I, John
Digges, of Prince George's County, in the Province
of Maryla.nd, Gent, am held and firmly bound un-
to Adam Faurney (Forney), of Philadelphia coun-
ty, in the Province of Pennsylvania, Farmer and
Taylor, in the full and Just sum of Sixty pounds
current money of Maryland, to which payment
well and truly to be made and done, I bind myself,
my Heirs, Executors and Administrators, firmly by
these presents. Sealed with my seal and dated this
fifth day of October, Anno Domino, 1731.

The condition of the above obligation is such that
if the above bound John Digges, his Heirs, Executors
or Administrators, shall and will at the reasonable
request of the above Adam Faurney, make & order
by sufficient conveyance according to the custom
and common usage of the Province of Maryland, a
certain parcell of land containing one hundred and
fifty acres, already marked out by the above named
Adam Faurney, near a place known by the name
of Robert Owings' Spring, and on the same tract
of land where the said Robert Owing now Dwells
in the Province of Maryland, then this obligation
to be void, otherwise to remain in full force and
virtue in Law.

The "Annals of Hanover," by M. O. Smith,
to whom we are indebted for many facts in
the history of Hanover, gives the following
names of persons, who were among the first
settlers on "Digges' Choice":

Adam Forney and Peter Zarich, in 1731;
David Young, Adam Miller, Adam Messier,
John Lemmon, 1732; Valentine and Conrad
Eyler, in 1734; Henry Sell and Martin
Kitzmiller, 1736; Jacob and Derrick Young-
blood, Peter Raysher, Adam Forney, 1737;
while Charles Jones, Peter Youngblood,
Andrew Shriver, Matthias Marker, Peter and
William Olers, Jacob Banker, and Peter
Welby came before 1737. By 1741, Herman
Updegraef, shoe-maker, Peter Shultz, black-
smith, Leonard Barnes, Peter Ensminger,
Matthias Ullery or Ullrich, and William
Loyston, and many others.

There was no place in the whole history

cision, concerning the land titles, as around
Hanover. These conflicting claims of Penn-
sylvania and Maryland were once the topic
for discussion by the king in council, and
were supposed to be finally settled when Ma-
son and Dixon's line was run, which crosses
the turnpike six miles south of Hanover. Ac-
tion in the courts continued until nearly the
period of the Revolution, when jurisdiction,
by royal permission, was extended to the
boundary line in 1774. By a letter from
William Digges, dated "York County, Han-
over Town, April 18, 1774," to James Til-
inghman, it appears there were yet " unsold
divers parcels of the tract of land known by
the name of Digges' Choice," and purchasers
had offered and contracts deferred on ac-
count of the boundaries of the tract not hav-
ing been ascertained; he states that he had
applied to Archibald McClean, who is well
acquainted with the lines thereof and set-
tlements adjoining, and who also resides
within the same, for a survey, but who de-
clined, without having an order from the
proprietaries. (See Affidavits II Archives
76-83).

EAELY HISTORY.

About 1763, at the junction or crossing of
the high road from Baltimore to Carlisle,
and that from Philadelphia and York to
Frederick, stood a two-story log-tavern*, in a
small clearing, surrounded by a hickory
forest. This public inn and store were the
"headquarters" of Conewago Settlement, and
stood in the southeastern part of the above-
mentioned tract, known as "Digges' Choice.".
McAllister's tavern was a popular resting
place, the roads which crossed there being
much traveled. Richard McAllister, the pro-
prietor, was an adventurous Scotch-Irishman,
who had located here before the erection of the
county in 1749, and had acquired a powerful
influence over the Germans, who had al-
ready thickly settled in these parts. At
what date he came to Digges' Choice, is not
known. McAllister had but a single near
neighbor, one Schmeltzer, whose one-story log
dwelling, stood a short distance down the
Frederick road (on the lot now owned and
occupied by Mr. John Eckert). Yet one
day the Scotch-Irishman announced his in-
tention to found a village on his land. This
declaration caused a sensation throughout
the neighborhood — the stolid Germans de-
claring the project a wild scheme. Rev.
Wiestling, in his account of the founding of
Hanover, written in 1818, gives the follow-

ing anecdote, illustrating what McAllister's
neighbors thought of his intention: "A very
aced and respected lady of a remarkably re-
tentive memory, related a few years ago, the
following anecdote on this subject: A certain
farmer of those days, returning to his family,
after some visits through the neighborhood,
thus addressed his wife in the presence of
the lady above alkided to, "Mammy' (this was
then, and is yet, a very common address of
the Germans to their wives); 'Mammy, I
have great news to tell you — Richard Mc-
Allister is going to make a town !' The
wife after some inquiries and observations,
said, with a sarcastic smile, which spoke
more than words, ' Ha ! ha ! ha ! I am
afraid that man will turn a fool at last, I
think he will call his town Hickorytown. ' "

THE TOWN or HANOVER.

Notwithstanding the derision of the set-
tlers McAllister laid out the town, in 1763
or 1764. He placed the centre of it on the
higher ground to the southwest of his resi-
dence, and changed the course of the roads
to conform to the plan of the streets. The
latter he named from the places to which the
roads led; that running toward Frederick
being called Frederick Street; that toward
York, York Street; that toward Carlisle, Car-
lisle Street, and that toward Baltimore, Bal-
timore Street. What is now known as Ab-
bottstown Street, was called "Pidgeon Street,"
as it led to Pidgeon Hills, although it ended
at Harrisburg, or " Harris' Ferry. '^'

The original intention of the founders of
all towns at that date, seems not to have been
so much a desire for fame, or to realize an
immediate fortune, as to make an invest-
ment that would continue to yield a hand-
some revenue forever. Hence all lots were
sold subject to a yearly rent of a certain
number of shillings. Some jDroperty in Han-
over is still held under such title, and the
rent must be paid to the legal representatives
of the estate of Richard McAllister. The
deeds also required the purchaser to build a
house at least eighteen feet square on the
lot, within two years after the date of the
deed.

The first house, after the lots were staked
off, was on Frederick Street, on the site of
the house now owned and occupied by Isaac
Wise, was built by John Nusser, who was
derisively called the "Governor of McAllister-
town," on account of having built the first
house in the new town. Several other
houses were built soon afterward, all of logs,
and each two stories in height. One of
these stood on Frederick Street where John

Eiipp now lives; another where Daniel S.
Barnitz now resides, and still another on the ]
site of O'Bold's Building — the last two being
on Broadway. Some disorder was occasioned
by the dispute as to the jurisdiction of Penn- ;
sylvauia and Maryland, but this was not
serious, as that trouble had expended its
fury before Hanover was laid out as a town.
The title of " Rogues' Harbor," or "Rogues'
Resort," was given to Hanover, on account
of the number of fugitives from justice that
found a refuge on this disputed land. The
following is from Rev. Wiestling's narrative:
" If the sheriff of York County could catch a
delinquent half a mile out of town, in a
northeast direction, then he might legally I
make him his prisoner, under the authority of
the courts of this county; but neither in town
nor nearer the town than that, had he any
ministerial power." An anecdote, related by i
a respectable old gentleman, deserves credit:
A number of robbers having broken into
McAllister's store, he seized them and took
them to York for confinement, but the sheriff
refused to admit them, saying, "You, of
Hanover, wish to be independent: punish
your villains yourselves." The number of
disreputable characters who sought refuge in
Hanover must have been considerably exag-
gerated by tradition, for, as stated above, the
town had but five or six houses in 1764, and
in 1768, it was decided to be in Pennsylvania
by the running of Mason and Dixon's line.

The new town was named Hanover, at the
suggestion of Michael Tanner, a friend of
McAllister, and a native of Hanover, in Ger-
many. Tanner had been commissioned one
of his majesty's justices of the peace as early
as 1755, and was one of the commissioners
appointed to lay off Y'^ork County in 1749.
The lots of the new town were sold at fair
prices. As an evidence of this, Lot No. 22,
on Carlisle Street, next lot north of St.
Mark's Lutheran Church, now the site of
Mrs. M. W. Barnitz's handsome residence,
was bought from McAllister by George Blin-
singer for £4, on the 19th day of March,
1794.

The early settlers of this locality, and even
as late as the founding of Hanover, were
frequently visited by Indians, but no record
is given of tbem committing much depreda-
tion. One instance of remarkable note, how-
ever, was the shooting* of Adam Forney,
which occurred on the 17th of March, 1748.
A red man, under the influence of intoxicat-
ing liquor, called at Forney's house, and
asked him for rum. Forney gave him one



drink, when he demanded more, which was
refused. The Indian became very much en-
raged, started away, but soon returned, hav-
ing a loaded gun in his hand, and shot For-
ney in the breast. The Indian was captured,
taken before Justice Swope, of York, and
after a hearing, was imprisoned, and was
not released until Adam Forney recovered
from his painful wounds. Indians frequent-
ly visited Hanover in small bodies, as late as
the beginning of the Revolutionary war in
1775. sometimes greatly frightening some of
the inhabitants, but doing no injury to them.
They came chiefly for the purpose of beg-
ging from the whites or trading with them.

TAXABLE INHABITANTS IN 178^.

The county commissioner ordered a special
assessment and census taken in York County
during the year 1783. Heidelberg Town-
ship, laid off in 1750, included till 1815 the
town of Hanover and an area of territory not
much greater than "Digges' Choice." Being
a rich agricultural section, it was densely
populated in 1783. The owners of "lots," as
designated in the following list, lived in Han-
over. The valuation is on a specie basis.
The names here given include all residents of
Heidelberg Township, which then extended
into what is now Adams County.
