And she, the said Catharine Elizabeth Greve, did in like
manner declare that she took the said John Swope to be her

and obedient wife until death should separate them. In tes-
timony thereof both the parties hereunto have set their hands.

This contract was .signed by nineteen witnesses, many of
them the ancestors of old Lancaster county families. The
.second wife of John Swope died Aug. 14, 1776. He survived
her until Dec. 18, 1780, when he died. He was buried in
the graveyard of the Old Hellers (Salem) Church, about a
mile from his home, where repose five generations of the
family.

From the provisions of his will he must have accumulated
a considerable estate for those earl}^ days. The home planta-
tion he bequeathed to his .son, John Daniel, and it is still
owned by his descendants. To his sons Jacob, Adam and
Henry he gave each a farm. To his other children and grand-
children he left various sums ranging from fifty to one hundred
and twenty-five pounds each. By his second marriage he had
issue as follows:

CHAPTER VI.

ANNA BARBARA SWOPE AND PHILIP GLONINGER.
TOGETHER WITH THEIR DESCENDANTS.

I. Anna Barbara Swope' (John'-', Yost'), the fourth
child of John and Anna Dorothea ( Line) Swope, was born in
the homestead in Upper Leacock township, Lancaster county,
Pa., March 12, 1731. Her father had emploj^ed on the farm
a young man named -'^ PhiHp Gloninger, who won the
affections of the daughter, Anna Barbara. He being an in-
dustrious and capable man, met with favor in the eyes of the
father and married the daughter. Philip Gloninger was born
in the Palatinate, Germany, and was one of the sufferers from
the desolation of that fair country. He came to America
at about 28 years of age. After the marriage of Philip
Gloninger and Anna Barbara Swope, they moved to
Lebanon township (now Lebanon county) where they lived
until death. The old Gloninger home is still standing on the
the south bank oj Quitapahilla creek. In early days it was
known as the Gloninger " Fort." During the Indian wars it
was used as a place of refuge by the inhabitants of the sur-
rounding country from the Indians, f" It is a good speci-
men of the solid architecture of the early days, with its piked
roof and original port holes for windows, and serves as an in-
teresting landmark because here the first Gloninger lived,
from whom has descended locally quite an illustrious family.
George, son of Philip and Anna Barbara Gloninger, seems to
have been the oldest, and remained on the old homestead as
farmer. Phihp died December 11, 1796, and Anna Barbara,
September 23, 18 10 They are both buried in the graveyard
of the Reformed church at Lebanon, Pa. They had several

yard at that place,

II. George Glonixger*, (Anna B. (Swope) Gloninger'',
John Swope", Yo.st Swope'), w^as born in Lebanon township,
Lebanon county, Pa. He there grew to manhood and became
a farmer, occupying the old home.stead. He was not a man
who was ambitious for public office, but was highl}' esteemed
and an important man in the community. He was posses.sed
of considerable means, as is shown l)y his will. He married
Mary, daughter of Martin Funk, of the same township. They
had three children, as follows: —

i. Dr. George Gi.oxixger, who died in Philadelphia, Pa. ,

about 1850, unmarried,

and Kate, all of whom married.

tian Swope.

III. Hox. John Gloxixger\ (Anna B. (vSwope) Glon-
inger', John Swope", Yost Swope') was born in Lebanon
township, Lebanon county, Pa.. Sept. 19, 1750. He received
most of his education from the pastor of the Reformed church,
as it was quite a common thing in those early daj's for the
pastor to receive into his study the brighter youths of his
church for instruction, or to teach a parochial school. On
the breaking out of the Revolutionary war he enlisted, and
towards the close was in command of a battalion of militia.
The Supreme Executive Council appointed him count}'
lieutenant on the organization of Dauphin county, May 6,
1785. In 1790 he was elected a representative to the General
Assembly. This office he shortly after re.signed, and was

bered the stirring scenes of the war of 1 8 1 2 as occurred in the
vicinity of Baltimore. Her mind had a .strong poetical bent,
and next to her church the poets gave her the greatest enjoy-
ment. Four children were the issue of this union: —

fine farm on the outskirts of Canal Dover, and there
resided for many years, afterwards locating perma-
nently in Canal Dover. This union was blessed with
nine children, fave of whom are living. Mrs. Deardorf
was a kind, beuevolent friend to all in distress. In
church relations she and her husband were earnest
workers in the M. E. church. She was laid to rest in
the cemetery at Canal Dover. ]\Iourned she must be,
but the memory of her beautiful spirit and life is fresh
in the hearts of all who knew her.

and for his valor and bravery was promoted to the
captaincy of Co. E, Eightieth Ohio Infantry Vol. When
the war was virtually over he resigned and returned to
the peaceful pursuits of life, engaging in the manu-
facture of salt and bromine. Capt. Hildt was a gener-
ous, large hearted man, possessed of a strong will power
and determination; no obstacle was sufficiently great to
prevent him from reaching his object. He died Ma}'
21, 1887. Cut down just at the zenith of his career, his
death left a sadness and vacancy in the hearts of a host
of friends.

in the capacity of a girl bachelor and farmeress. In this
line her time is fully occupied. ' ' She still resides in the
old home, and cherishes the fond memories and asso-
ciations which cling to it of those of her forefathers and
loved ones gone before.
