From Ron Santmyers:

A family in Front Royal known as the Camerons had the misfortune of both parents dying prematurely. George and Lillie took in two or more of the Cameron children, who were know as Santmyers thereafter.

Iva and Lacey were two of these children, research is continuing as to whether there were others.

This from Linda Casey, July 2010: "My aunt, Gertrude Santmyer Dettling, told me that Harrison had worked in the mines and was told he was no longer needed, probably because of his age. He was despondent for almost a year when he shot himself in the bedroom. My mother was Melva Santmyer Devorak."

3 Susan Updike's father was Amos Updike. Her mother Was Sarah Updike, Sarah was Amos's brother Daniel's daughter. Amos was born in the late 1790s and Sarah about 1804.
Amos was quite a character. He had a store in Brownsville, Virginia. (now called Browntown) He kept very detailed records for the store. He bought large quantities of sugar on a regular basis. The sales made to his customers did not add up to the total bought, not by a long shot. The extra sugar went to the production of illegal alcohol. He had a large cabin with massive fireplaces on either end. His door was always open to the men of the area, where Amos would tell tales about his hunting prowess. He said he had killed a 400 pound bear in hand to hand combat. He also sold his bootleg booze at these gatherings. He was not a favorite of the wives of his customers! He disappeared from the Brownsville area shortly after Susan's marriage to Christopher. It was said that he followed his daughter to Ohio.
We have some of his ledgers in the archives. One lists Christopher's purchases in 1852.

4 John was married to Mary Ann "Polly" Kitchen, whose parents were William Kitchen and Margaret Ward. Both John and Mary Ann are listed in her father's will, alongside her siblings and their spouses if they had them. Her mother died in 1787 or 1788, and the following year, John, Mary Ann and their three children joined many others who migrated to northern Kentucky. Eventually, Mary Ann would have many more children with John. Some of the Virginians that John knew that also came to KY were Asa Vallandingham, Charnock Self, Ignatius Wheeler (RevWar veteran) and many others, including some of Mary Ann's relatives. The two of them remained in northern KY for the rest of their lives. John died in 1836. Mainly, I'm writing to try to quell the misinformation regarding Mary Ann's last name. William Kitchen's will took 15 years to complete, probably because many of the beneficiaries had moved west. Thanks, Mary Lynn SKIRVIN KITCHEN, Mary Ann (I85671)

10 "As for Adam, he definitely died in Lancaster Co. The Naperville Clarion of October 19, 1870 carried this item in the 'Gossip columns": "Mr Adam Zentmyer, the oldest man in Copenhagen, is about to shake the dust from his feet, turn his back upon that burg and remove to Pennsylvania. He has sale on the 28th inst., and has three of the best cows in this county, which will be sold." The diary of Jacob Zentmyer, grandson of Adam, says on December 25, 1872: "We hat A poor chrismus no fun ataul we hat A turkey for diner Anuff to Eat and we are all well today we got A letter from M L Miller she rides that grandfather Zentmyer died he was 86 years & 5 month & 12 day old only sick from Sat till Sunday Night cold it began to Snow this Evening" Spelling and punctuation are as in the original. M. L. (Mary Louise) Miller was a first cousin to Jacob and lived (at least in later years) in Lancaster city."

11 "Baddad", as he was fondly called by his grandchildren, was a kind, quiet man. He seemed to rule the house with an iron fist, though, it seemed to be done without ever saying a word. For as long as I can remember, he always had his garden. Sometimes he had to rent a plot of ground blocks from his home. It was always a special treat to be allowed to tag along to spend a morning or afternoon with him working in the garden. If I was lucky, he would dig up a kohlrabi, peel it with the penknife he always carried and slice it into bite size pieces for me to eat. This was a very special treat to me. In the late 1940's, when they lived on Schley Avenue, I remember him sitting at the table on the chair in the corner by the window listening to the Pirates baseball game on the radio. There was a big floor model radio in the living room, but I don't remember him ever listening to the ball games on it. In the early evening, he would sit in his easy chair reading the Pittsburgh Press newspaper. More often than not, he would actually be napping behind the paper. In the evenings he would usually walk to Duffy's Tavern in Crafton to drink beer and exchange stories with his cronies. Some evenings he would get together with his neighbor, Tom Creely, and they would harmonize old songs way into the night. Occasionally one or both would play the bazooka. As the years passed and he became older, much older, he only wanted to stay at home - it was even a chore to get him to go to the home of one of his children. He continued to garden up until just a few years prior to his death at age 91.

Stephen worked the coal mines of Carnegie at age 10 - his job was that of a "trapper".

Stephen & Ethel were married at the Garfield House in Homestead, PA by Rev. H. F. Williamson. The Garfield House, located at the corner of Eighth Avenue and McClure, was owned and operated by the McBroom family. They lived here in the family hotel briefly until they found more permanent lodging. Ethel's father had forbidden her to see (socialize/date) Stephen because of the vast gap in their ages. When the couple eloped, he disowned her for a few years.

Lived in Homestead (Vondra Plan / 20th Ave. 6 months / 20th Ave. on corner / 228 19th Street (about 1919) / 16th Ave. & Maple at the back of the store)

12 "Christopher Santmyer, was born in Virginia, and having attained his majority, married Susan Updike, also a native of that State. Four years later they removed to Seneca County, Ohio, where the father followed farming, also carried on blacksmithing and shoe making. In 1861 in Delaware, Ohio, he enlisted in the Union army and served until the close of the war, and participated in many important battles. He afterward went to Saginaw Mich., where he continued for a number of years, then returned to Seneca county. He is still a resident of Ohio. Their children were John, a farmer of Hancock county, Ohio; Robert, a farmer of Bloom township; R.C. our subject; David H., of Wayne county, Ohio, and Mrs Jane Vogelson." -History of Wood County, Ohio SANTMYER, Christopher (I1668)
 
13 "Father of Nathaniel was Robert Strayhorn/Strahorn, who was born in Scotland in 1733. Nathaniel was born in Ireland in 1765. According to the Biographical History of Chester and Delaware Counties by Cope and Ashmeade (the copy I have seen was entitled Historic Homes and Institutions and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of Chester and Delaware Counties -Ed) published in 1901, Vol 2, page 394, "Robert Strahorn was a Scottish dissenter, who left his native land in order to escape religious persecution, and landed in America in April 1775, about the time of the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. He enlisted three times in the Continental army, serving through the entire war, and never receiving a wound. He participated in some of the most memorable events which marked the struggle for independence, and was a sharer in many of the greatest of the hardships which fell to the lot of the devoted patriot army. He accompanied Washington when the latter, on that never-to-be-forgotten Christmas night, crossed the Delaware in order to surprise the Hessians at Trenton, and he shared all the sufferings of the winter at Valley Forge. Robert brought his two sons, Nathaniel and Samuel with him to America in 1775." -Ancestry.com UK

Robert "heroically ate rats with Washington at Valley Forge." from Ninety Years of Boyhood the autobiography of Robert E. Strahorn, Robert's great-great-grandson.

"I also have a Robert Strayhorn who was born in 1733 in Scotland and had two sons Nathaniel and Samuel who were born in Ireland before emigrating to the America's in 1775, where he settled in the New London, Chester, PA area. Nathaniel married a lady by the name of Olympia and had 5 children Hannah, Samuel, Thomas, Elizabeth, and Peter. Of these folks, I have little else other that Nathaniel married in Montgomery CO PA. Robert's son Samuel, had descendants who settled in Ceder Rapids IA, Hardin CO IA, and other places in IA, as well as in New London PA, and Dakota territories as well as Cecil CO MD. This line contains 157 people and it is my belief that Eva Armitage compiled it." -Ed Reynolds, Rootsweb Archiver > STRAYHORN > 2000 > 0962906061

17 "I've looked through the minutes of the Pennsylvania Ministerium from 1820-1840, but did not find any mention of a Rev. John Emmert. He is also not listed in the clergy listing in the 1892 history of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of East Pennsylvania." -Joel Thoreson, Archivist, Archives of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. EMMERT, Johannes/John (I85890)
 
18 "Johannes died in 1844 and was the father of John N. Zentmeyer. John N. had been clerk of the courts from about 1837-1855. As a matter of fact, the courthouse had a pic of every court clerk since the beginning of time - except for John N. Zentmeyer. So I gave them one and it now hangs in the courthouse with the others. John moved the family to Mayo Forge, Virginia in 1855 for benefit of his wife who was in in poor health - it was much warmer in Mayo Forge than up on Floyd mountain. His kids, Peter and Edwin, lived in Mayo Forge, Peter had three boys, one was my Grandfather, John Edwin. By the way, the house in Mayo Forge, built in 1852, every brick, nail and board made on site by slaves, is still owned by the Zentmeyers. Interesting stuff." - Gentry Zentmeyer

He was 76 years old. His death was just one year after that of his wife, who came to Chicago as his bride fifty years ago. Mrs. Strahorn died May 25, 1902, and since her death her husband had grown perceptibly weaker. Coming here from Ohio in 1853 Mr. Strahorn became one of the commission merchants in the old Sherman stockyards, then located at State and 22nd Streets. From that time he was actively interested in the commission business in Chicago, and for years has been regarded as an authority by the younger men of the yards. He was born in Wayne county, Pa. (no, actually West Buffalo Township, Union County, Pennsylvania -Ed.) leaving there for Ohio when a boy. In 1853 he married Julia Murdock, and leaves one son, Harry C. Strahorn, who was associated with him in business. Until two years ago Mr. Strahorn had no partners in business.

28 "The exact date at which any individual came here to reside cannot be ascertained. Among the papers of Mr. Cushing, there is a 'list of the names of such persons as came out of the town of Hingham, and towns adjacent, in the County of Norfolk, in the Kingdom of England, into New England, and settled in Hingham.' From this list we are led to believe there were inhabitants here as early as 1633, and among them Ralph Smith, Nicholas Jacob with his family, Thomas Lincoln, weaver, Edmund Hobart (probably Jr.-Ed) and his wife, from Hingham, and Thomas Hobart with his family, from Windham, in Norfolk, England. During the same year Theophilus Cushing, Edmund Hobart, senior, Joshua Hobart, and Henry Gibbs, all of Hingham, England, came to this country. Cushing lived some years at Mr. Haines's farm, and subsequently removed to Hingham. The others settled at Charlestown, and in 1635 removed to this place. In 1634 there were other settlers here, and among them Thomas Chubbuck; Bare Cove was assessed in that year. To 1635, at the May court, Joseph Andrews was sworn as constable of the place. There was a considerable increase of the number of Settlers, and in that year grants of land were made to upwards of fifty individuals, of which a record is preserved. It was in June of that year that Rev. Peter Hobart arrived at Charlestown, and soon after settled in this place." - from History of Hingham published 1893, pages 201-209 (Thomas Lincoln's younger brother Samuel Lincoln, also a weaver, who came to Hingham in 1737, was the ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln -Ed)

30 "William H. Zentmire, now living on section 1, Belknap Township, where he owns and operates one hundred and ninety acres of land, has for the past twenty years been engaged in breeding registered shorthorn cattle and now makes a specialty of handling polled Durhams. He is a successful businessman and a worthy representative of agricultural interests in Pottawattamie County.

He was born in Warren County, Ohio, September 1, 1844. His father, David Zentmire, was a native of the same state and was of German ancestry. The paternal grandfather served as a soldier in the War of 1812.

David Zentmire was a carpenter by trade and followed that pursuit in early manhood, but afterward turned his attention to farming and became fairly well-to-do. His political allegiance was given to the Whig Party and he afterward supported the Republican Party. He married Diana Minick, who was born in Pennsylvania and was a member of the Quaker or Friends church. She represented one of the old Pennsylvania Dutch families. By her marriage she became the mother of the following named: Angeline, the wife of Robert J. Black, a retired farmer living in Chautauqua County, Kansas; Amanda, deceased; Samantha, who makes her home with her sister Angeline; William H.; Sylvester, deceased; Wilson, who is superintendent of the county infirmary of Mercer County, Illinois; Elizabeth, the wife of Hale McClure, a cattleman of North Dakota; George, a cattleman of Montana; Harry, who is engaged in farming near Big Mound, Iowa; Alice, the widow of Horace McLean, of Red Oak, Iowa; and Eva, the wife of Adam Hemingway and a resident of Red Oak, Iowa.

The usual experiences that fall to the lot of farm boys came to William H. Zentmire in his boyhood and youth. He attended the country schools and when not busy with his textbooks aided in the work of the fields or in the care of the stock. He has always followed farming and stock-raising, and upon coming to Iowa in the spring of 1872 he located at Big Grove, where he has since resided. He is now living on section 1, Belknap Township, where he owns and cultivates one hundred and ninety acres of land. A part of this is used for pasturage, and for the past twenty years Mr. Zentmire has been engaged in breeding registered shorthorn cattle, making a specialty at the present time of polled Durhams, of which he has a fine herd of thirty-five head. He has been very successful in tilling the soil and in raising stock and is recognized as a man of good business ability and unfaltering enterprise.

On the 22nd of April, 1872, Mr. Zentmire was married to Miss Eliza Kiddoo, who was born in Illinois in 1850. The became the parents of seven children, of whom Rena, Alva, Frederick and Elsie are all now deceased. The others are Etta, the wife of James O. May, pastor of the Broadway Methodist Church of Council Bluffs; Frank and Martha, both at home.

The parents are faithful and consistent members of the Methodist Church, in which Mr. Zentmire has long been an officer, serving also as a teacher of the bible class in the Sunday School for many years. In politics he is a Republican and has held several township offices. He is deeply interested in the welfare of his community, especially in its moral progress, and has labored untiringly and unceasingly for the upbuilding of the church and for the best interests of the community at large."

41 *Notes:
.........Name also appears as Daniel L.
.........Gerilee Santmyers supplied a birth date as 1859 for Daniel, Izetta lists his birth as 1853. With either date it seems impossible that Frank born 4 Feb 1861 could be his son. I have 1886 as the date of marriage, which would fit with the birth date of 1887 for Infant Fnu. Also the the 1887 marriage fits with a birth date of 1853 or 1859. Thus, either the birth date is incorrect for Frank's birth or this is not the correct Frank Santmyer. I suggest this is not the correct Frank to connect with Daniel, since Mollie, wife of Frank, was born in 1862, and their marriage date is listed as 1884.

Update 1/22/00: Information received from Ron Santmyers, great grandson of Frank and Mary A. (Mollie) Mitchell Santmyers includes the following:

Frank Santmyers, born 1861Warren Co., VA, died 23 December 1941Warren Co., VA, was the son of Mildred A. and Daniel Santmyers. This Daniel (not Daniel P.) was born 1814 (based on age of 36 in 1850 census) or 1820 (per info from Ron Santmyers) in Shenandoah Co., VA and died in 1897 in Warren Co., VA. In addition to info from Ron Santmyers, the 1850 Warren Co., VA Census also lists the wife of Daniel as Mildred. I believe that Frank Santmyers born 1861 and his descendants were incorrectly attached to this Daniel P. and Mary L. Putman Santmyers.
