Anna Elizabeth, the third comer into life of the second gen-
eration, who never married, was born April 3, 1776, and died July
8, 1854. She lived to be 78 years, 3 months and 5 days old, and
therefore lived a longer life than any of the other nine of Hein-
rich's and Rosine's children. The next oldest at death, and the
only one that survived Anna Elizabeth, was Anna Maria Williams,
v/ho departed from, the land of the living eight years afterwards,
at the age of 75 years and 6 months. Jacob was the first of the
family to pay the debt we all owe to Mother Earth, and, as al-
ready stated, probably died when he was still somewhat under
forty years old, or when he was hardly more than half Anna Eliz-
abeth's age. The combined ages at death of Anna E's sisters and
brothers was about 546 years, making their average ages about 60
years, hence she survived their mean ages about 18 years. She
was 19 years old when she left (1795) the place of her birth,
and was already 29 years old when (1805) her father bought the
Sinking Spring property. After Heinrich's demise (1820) she
made her home with her youngest brother, Baltzer, until he died

(1851), and after his decease she spent her few remaining days
with his youngest son, Daniel, who had just married and com-
menced housekeeping, and had soon after taken a portion of his
father's farm. She is remembered as having been long a patient,
faithful and useful member of Baltzer's household, as a kind old
aunt, whom the children loved hardly less than they loved their
mother, but of her early life nothing is now remembered, because
not one is now alive who knew her then. In the illustration of the
old family burial place, in which the present house of worship is
shown, the headstone on which the writer's right hand rests,
marks her place of repose, alongside of the grave of her brother,
Baltzer, from whom she had never been separated until death did
them part ; and it seems almost as certain, after critical study of
the ground, that she is also restmg next to her parents, Heinrich
and Rosine, who, with Philip's first wife, are believed to be lying
in the same row, between her grave and the church. What recol-
lections that would interest us all now went down with them into
their abodes of silence!

"They loved, but the story we cannot unfold;
They scorned, but the heart of the haughty is cold;
They grieved, but no wail from their slumbers will come;
They joyed, but the tongue of their gladness is dumb.

They died, aye! they died; and we things that are now,

Who walk on the turf that lies over their brow,

Who make in their dwellings a transient abode,

Meet the things that they met on their pilgrimage road."



Philip, the fourth of Heinrich's children, was born March i,
1779, in a dark period of the colonial struggle for Independence —
though events of a few months later cheered up the disheartened
patriots, as for instance, when a little more than four months later
General Wayne stormed Stony Point and captured the garrison.
When Heinrich purchased the Sinking Spring tract (1805), Philip
was twenty-six years old. He was twice married, but who his
first wife was, where she was born, whether she came with him

140 The Gernhardt Family History.

from beyond the Blue Mountain, or whether he married her soon
after he came to the valley of the Susquehanna, there appears to
be no existing record to show, and no one now living knows. She
died, as near as can be ascertained, about 1810. Her grave, like
Heinrich's and Rosine's, is unmarked and forgotten, but is be-
lieved to be in the old Delaware Run churchyard and in the same
row with theirs. Her daughter, Catharine, the orphan legatee
named in Heinrich's will, was born Januar}^ 13, 1806, and was al-
ready four years old when, at her mother's death, she was taken
and adopted by her aunt, Magdalena Shafer. His second wife
was Mary Magdalena Bieber, of Lycoming County, with- whom he
united in marriage about 181 1, and had seven children. She was
a daughter of Adam Bieber, an old soldier of the Revolution, who
was one of the early settlers of Muncy Valley. Philip was a far-
mer, but also for some time along with farming kept a tavern,
known in later years as Shipman's Tavern, in Moreland Township,
Lycoming County, and only about one hour's drive from where
his sister, Margaret Litchard, then lived. He died June 9, 1843, i^i
his 65th year, having, after the family settlement in Northumber-
land County, never lived more than two or three hours' drive from
the Sinking Spring. Mary Magdaline died in Muncy July 30,
1851. Both are buried in Hill's graveyard, where her parents re-
pose, near the eastern border of Muncy Borough, in a beautiful
spot on a bank, but in an old, overgrown and sadly neglected re-
ceptacle of the dead, which is now no longer used, and seems des-
tined to vanish in "the swallowing gulf of dark oblivion." The
descendants of Philip are :

L CATHARINE^, the daughter by his first wife, was b. Jan.
13, 1806, in Delaware (then Turbut) Township, Northumberland
County, Pa. She was raised by her aunt, Magdalena, as already
stated, and taken by her in 1812 to Sparta, in what is now Living-
ston County, N. Y. She was also in time twice married, first to
Daniel W. Cruger, of Dansville, N. Y., April 3, 1825, and second
to James Coller, of the same place, in 1836. She died at Scotts-
burg, N. Y., May 17, i860. Had four children :

He served three years and nine months in the 23d Indiana
Heavy Artillery, and participated in many of the great battles of
the Civil War, as Nashville, Lookout Mountain, Stone River,
Goldsboro, etc. It was his good fortune to pass through them all
"without a scratch," as he wrote me in October, 1898, — since
which date I have not heard from him, — but at the battle of At-
lanta he unfortunately lost his hearing. Having had no opportu-
nity to interview him, I cannot give any of his recollections, and
personal experiences during his long term of service, which would
certainly have made interesting reading for his many kinsmen, es-
pecially to his descendants, and to his relatives who fought in the
same memorable battles. He was the parent of eleven children,
seven of whom he mentioned as living at the time he wrote, viz :
Charles A.^, Ada M.^, Chauncey A.^, John W.^, Nora V.^, Dora^,
and Jocia^.

III. DAVID GARNHART3, ^ Jnl_v 2, 1813. According
to the headstone on his grave, in the old Walton graveyard, be-
tween Mtincy and the Susquehanna River, he was born in 1817,
but his certificate of baptism has been preserved and shows that
he was born in 1813. He married Miss Charlotte Walton, a
granddaughter of James Walton, one of the first permanent set-
tlers of Penn's Manor, of Muncy, who in December, 1791, bought
his tract of 459 acres of the provincial proprietaries, John Penn,
the elder, and John Penn, the younger. Charlotte was a sister of
F"leming Walton, who married Maria, the youngest of her hus-
band's sisters. David died Oct. 8, 1842, and she died Dec. 17,
1868. They had—

IV. SARAH KELLEY GARNHART^, b. Nov. 23, 1816;
m. William Cruse, April 8, 1850.

They moved from Muncy Valley to Calhoun County, Michi-
gan, in 1853, carrying with them all their worldly possessions in
a one-horse wagon. This may have been before Horace Greely
gave his well-known advice, "Go West, young man ! go West,"

but all the same William and Sarah thought it was the only way
for them to become the owners of a good farm. They drove their
stakes on a piece of good land, — which, though it did not cost
much, nearly depleted their pocketbook, — and they had a hard and
long struggle before their pluck and industry brought them their
well deserved reward of prosperity. I remember William remark-
ing to me — in June, 1879, when I was in the west, and on my re-
turn home stopped off at his farm for several days — that he had
hauled wood about twelve miles, to Marshall, with a yoke of oxen,
and was glad to get even 50 cents for the load. But in time he
had a good and well-improved farm, and at the time of my visit
was enjoying a beautiful and comfortable home. She died April
14, 1890. Had three children :

1. Mary Emma Cruse"^, b. July 3, 1852; d. Nov. 17, 1874.

2. Clara Walton Cruse*, b. Oct. 14, 1856; m. Burton Wil-
liam Gleason, March 26, 1902.

3. James Hervey Cruse*, b. Sept. 6, 1858; m. first. Miss Mary

Goodrich, Nov. 26, 1879; she d. Oct. 18,1895; m. second,
Mrs. EUenora Perkins, Jan. 16, 1900 ; r. Hudson, Mich. ;
o. dealer in lumber, coal, etc. One son : Homer William
CruseS, b. May 13, 1883.

One of the pleasing reminiscences of the visit above mentioned
may here be related. I had read of persons who had tamed wild
birds without making captives of them, but had never witnessed a
sight so novel. Having read in Darwin's journal of the Voyage
of the Beagle, of the extreme tameness of the birds on the Gala-
pagos Archipelago, where they had not yet learned to know and
fear man as a dangerous animal, and where the great naturalist
said a gun was almost useless, as he pushed a hawk off the branch
of a tree with the muzzle of one, there was no doubt in my mind
that birds would be as tame everywhere if never molested, and
that their confidence and friendship could be enjoyed if never de-
ceived and harmed. Having already heard that Miss Clara Cruse
had wonderful success in taming the wild birds of different species
that sojourned during the summer months about the farm and in
the adjacent woods, without making prisoners of them, and only by

The GcrnJiardt Family History. 145

her adroitness and gentleness, I soon asked for some demonstration
of her forte and method of making friends of the winged migrants.
She explained that she had of late rather neglected her feathered
friends, and was apprehensive that her effort to entertain me with
their help might not be very satisfactory. She provided herself
with some bread crumbs, then led the way out into the yard and
began calling, as if she were trying to assemble some of her es-
teemed neighbors. I was soon gratified to see a little bird come
and light on a picket fence quite near her, as if inclined to come to
her. She continued calling, and in a few moments more several
others followed. By and by she reached out her hand, and soon,
to my surprise and delight, one of the twittering little creatures lit
on it and fearlessly began to pick up the crumbs she held in it.
Directly another came and perched on her shoulder, and others
came near, as if strongly inclined to come to her, but evidently feel-
ing somewhat uneasy for some reason that I did not understand,
possibly because a stranger was on the scene, or they may have
been disturbed by seeing one of the cats about, or they did not alto-
gether, under the circumstances, trust their of late somewhat neg-
lected friend, or the birds that responded may not have been the
friends who knew her best. But whatever the cause of their timid-
ity, I saw enough to satisfy me that all I had heard and read was
true. By kindness and gentleness Miss Clara was able to win, and
had, year after year, won the confidence of the free and wild birds
so that they would light on her hand, her head and shoulders, and
when she gently raised her hand to her face they would pick the
crumbs of bread out of her mouth. The secret of all this lay en-
tirely in her power of kindness and patience, of never betraying the
confidence once gained, of never frightening them, and of never
disappointing them when she invited them to come and get a meal.
The birds simply learned to love and trust her, just as she loved and
trusted the birds. I have often recalled and spoken of the unusual
and beautiful sight of the tamed free birds I witnessed on this
visit, and am well satisfied that if we would one and all be as kind,
gentle and patient with the feathered tribes, they would in time be-
come domesticated and have no fear of the Lords of Creation. But

Heinrich and Rosine in his veins is being taught to spare the birds.

Oren is one of the four of our kin who were in the Spanish-
American War, having- served in the Philippine Islands as a mem-
ber of Co. B of the 13th Minnesota Regiment. His first experi-
ence of actual war occurred soon after reaching Manila, when his
regiment was ordered into the trenches and took a leading part in
the first important land battle. At the time of his enlistment he
was studying civil and electric engineering, and having acquired
sufficient knowledge in that line to make him useful, was soon de-
tailed for special service on a supply train under General Lawton.
Having also readily gained some knowledge of the Spanish lan-
guage, he was next assigned to a particular duty on the then much
needed police force in Manila. By a mutual friend I was inform-
ed that he received special mention for his valuable service and
bravery. A more minute account of his army life would have been
ver}' interesting, and many, I am sure, will hereafter regret that
this sketch is so meagre. Several letters I addressed tO' him ap-
pear never to have reached him, and — now I can not any longer
delay the publication of this book.

Hi. Mary Anna (Cole)^, b. Jan. 11, 1881. When only 10
days old, at the death of her mother, she was adopted by
her uncle and aunt, Josias Leslie, and her name changed

first from the High School at Oconomowoc, Wis., and
afterwards, Jan. 24, 1902, from the State Normal
School, at Whitewater, and immediately thereafter com-
menced teaching music and drawing.
