Bernhard and Salome's Marriage Record from the Bischwiller Kirchenbücher (Churchbooks)
Bernhard and Salome's Marriage Record from the Bischwiller Kirchenbücher (Churchbooks)
"16 Feb recorded in a public setting per priestly ordinances Joh. Bernhard Zentmeӱers, remaining marriage-eligible son of Jacob Zentmeӱers, citizen and resident and farmer at Roigheim, in the jurisdiction of Württemberg, and Maria Salomina, remaining marriage-eligible daughter of Jacob Roth, citizen and resident and metal worker/fitter here"

This marriage record was the clue which led us the family's origins in Roigheim and then earlier in Franconia and southern Bavaria.

Bernhard's farm in present-day Penryn
Bernhard's farm in present-day Penryn
Bernhard's original farm is mostly intact, and currently produces wheat, corn, and beef. The current owners, J. Marlin Myer and his brother Gerald, tell me the farm has been in the Myer family since 1940. They say the original farm house is made of square logs, and is contained within the left-hand portion of the farm house in the middle of the view.

According to Cousin Ron, having two front doors was common for the period. Once a family had the ability to expand the house, the original door was used by the family, and the new door was for guests and opened into a parlor, where the family's best things were on display.

The two ponds are fed by a perennial spring, which has flowed since the earliest written records. Native American artifacts have been found at the site, suggesting it was likely a pre-colonial settlement as well.

Cemetery, Penryn, Pennsylvania.

Although spelled 'Bernhart Zentmeier' on his headstone, this spelling was rarely seen; the most common spelling in written records was (Johann) Bernhard Zentmeyer. 'Johann' was his Saints' name, which was also bestowed on all of his sons. A German from Württemberg, he married (Maria) Salome Roth 16 February 1739 in Bischwiller, Bas-Rhin, France. This region was known as Alsace, (Elsaß) and as recently as World War I was part of Germany. The family emigrated to Philadelphia, 22 November 1752 from Rotterdam aboard the good ship Phoenix, Ruben Honor, captain. Signed loyalty oath 'Bernhard Zendmeÿer.

Carrie's inscription to Mrs. Underwood 28 Jul 1914 at Old Faithful Inn
Carrie's inscription to Mrs. Underwood 28 Jul 1914 at Old Faithful Inn
This is from our copy of Fifteen Thousand Miles by Stage. It was surely written to the newly-married Mary Elizabeth Smith, wife of architect Gilbert Stanly Underwood, who in addition designing many of the Grand Lodges of the National Parks, worked extensively with both the Union Pacific and the Oregon Short Line Railroads.
