others.

Lawyers: In the legal profession, Penn-
sylvania Germans have always been in the
minority, but more especially so in early
times. During the first courts that were held
immediately after the organization of the
county, at least half a dozen lawyers appear
to have been admitted to the bar. Between
April 80, 1751, and April 25, 1769, a period
of eighteen years, twenty-two were admitted,
and among four admissions on that day, ap-
pears the first name bearing any decisive re-
semblance to German — Col. Casper Witzal.
If he was of German descent, probably the
name should have been spelled Weitzel.
Another admitted on the same day, was
Christian Hoak (probably Hoke, or Hoch).
On the 24th day of July, 1770, John Hubley
was admitted, making, perhaps, three Penn-
sylvania German lawyers admitted in a per-
iod of twenty-one years. Between the latter
date and January 25, 1785, a period of fif-
teen years, thirty were admitted — all English,

Irish, or, indeed, mostly Scotch-Irish; such
as Scott. Lloyd. Ross, Eeily, Buchanan, Por-
ter, McG-ill, McMecken, McGaw, McAlister,
Lawrence. Riddle, etc. On the last named
day, Jacob Hubley was admitted, and on the
25th of October following, Joseph Hubley,
making not over five Pennsylvania German
lawyers in a total of about eighty admissions
in thirty-six years. On the 25th of April,
1786, Peter Huffnagel, a sixth Pennsylvania
German, was admitted, and the only one
among thirty-six who were admitted in the
next eleven years. to 1797. In the following
period of twenty-five years, (to 1822) there
were thirty-six admissions, and among them
there were only three Pennsylvania Germans:
namely, Thomas B. Zantzinger, John Stroh-
man and Jacob A. Fischer. In the next
eleven years (1S22-1S34) there were forty -six
admissions, and among them eight Pennsyl-
vania Germans — George W. Klein, Emanuel
M. Reigard, Samuel M. Barnitz, George A.
Barnitz, George Heckert, William H. Kurtz,
Daniel M. Smyser (Schmeiser) and John L.
Mayer. To this last number must -be added
our late brother, John Evans (admitted
August 3, 1S22), who. though probably of
Welsh descent, was very familiar with the
Pennsylvania German dialect; and, as is well
known, was, for many years, generally re-
garded as the Pennsylvania German lawyer of
the York bar. His knowledge of the dialect, as
spoken here, was, no doubt, acquired through
his long residence, in his youth, in a Pennsyl-
vania German family, and his thorough prac-
tical acquaintance with it in after life, was
the result of his daily use of it in his jirofes-
sional, general business, and social intercourse
with our Pennsylvania German people.
Much the same is, no doubt, true of Bard,
Montgomery, and Grant of Berks; Denues,
McMullen, and Wilson, of Lancaster, and
McElroy and Kell. of York. They have, no
doubt, all found such a course in the highest
sense consistent, not only with success in
business, but with real social enjoyment; and
what is thiis true as to a comparatively few
lawyers, is equally true of hundreds of lay-
men and of men in other professions.

It will thus be seen that in a county orig-
inally settled by Germans,so largely German,
with an average Pennsylvania German pop-
ulation of probaby not less than 72 per cent
at the lapse of more than 150 years fi'om
the date of its first settlements, and the 136th
of its corporate existence, and, during which
periods, among some 370 lawyers admitted to
pratice at its bar, only about 60 were of the
prevailing nationality; while in population,
in nearly all the ofQces — in a word, in



Church and State, they were largely in the
majority. During the first twenty years,
(1749 to 1769,) at least 36 attorneys (resident
and non-resident) were admitted — not one of
whom was either German or Pennsylvania
German, by name. During the second period
of twenty" years (1769 to 1789), 49 were
admitted, 6 of whom, Witzal, the three
Hubeys, Hoake and Huffnagel were Pennsyl
vania Germans. In the third period of
twenty years, (1789 to 1810,) 33 were ad
mitted, of whom three, or, at most 4 were
Pennsylvania Germans. In the following-
period of twenty- four years there were 7(>
admitted, of whom at least 10 were Pennsyl
vania Germans. Thus far the analysis has
been based on the list of attorneys contained
in Carter and Glossbrenner's History. (1749
to 1834.) Within the intervening half cen-
tury the number of admissions have been
about 183 of whom at least 48 were Pennsyl-
vania Germans. In the first 10 years of
that time, 35 were admitted, of whom 5 were
Pennsylvania Germans. In the second ten
years, 40, of whom 15 were Pennsyl van i;i
Germans. In the third, 47. of whom 17 were
Pennsylvania Germans. In the fourth, 44.
of whom 13 were Pennsylvania Germans;
and in the fifth, 27, 15 of whom were Penn-
sylvania Germans. The names of such now,
or recently at the bar are Col. L. Maiseh,
John W.Bittinger, William Hay*, James Kell,
Frank Geise, Edward W. Spangler, Edward
D. Ziegler, George W. McElroy, Silas H.
Forry, Martin S. Eiehelberger, George W.
Hoiges, D. K. Trimmer, N. M. Wanner, E. Z.
Strino, John W. Heller, James B. Ziegler,
C. M. Wolff, John M. Young, W. H. Sitler,
G. W. Gross, A. C. Deveney*, E. D. Bentzel,
S. C. Frey, Frank Smyser, J. L. Ziegler, T.
W. Noedel, George E. Neff, W. A. Miller, E.
S. Frey, George S. Schmidt, Edward Stair,*
andH. L. Fischer; in all about thirty-one, or
more than one-half of the whole number of
lawyers now at the York bar, are of
Pennsylvania German descent. There are
about thirty-six in actual practice, more
than half of whom are sufficiently well
acquainted with the dialect for the trans-
action of their professional office bus-
iness, and more than one-fourth (or eleven),
speak it almost as fluently as English, and
two of whom (viz: George W^ McElroy and
James Kell,) are of Scotch-Irish descent.
On the whole, it is perfectly apparent that
there is now a much larger proportion of
Pennsylvania Germans in the legal, as well
as in some of the other learned profes-
sions, than at any previous time in oar



THE PENNSYLVANIA GERMANS.



history, and it would, probably, be safe to
say that there is not a bank, a leading store,
manufactory, and hardly a postoffice in any
of the counties of Adams, Berks, Dauphin,
Franklin, Lancaster, Lehigh, or Lebanon in
which some officer, proprietor or principal
employe, and generally many of them, will
not be found to speak to the customer or vis-
itor, most politely, in English or Pennsylvania
German, as he may prefer. And from which
the truth of a common saying — that Penn-
sylvania Germans and their dialect are grad-
ually dying out — would seem at least doubt-
ful. The writer has resided and practiced
his profession here continuously during the
last thirty-two years, and the result of a care
ful observation is that there is nearly, if not
quite as much Pennsylvania German spoken
by witnesses in coiu-t, by the country people
who attend our markets, and in business
transactions and social intercourse generally,
now, as there was thirty years ago. Indeed,
among many of our people, an increasing
disposition to learn, not only German, but
its dialects, especially the P. G. has of late
years, been manifested.
