Robert A. Zentmeyer, 80, formerly of Dover and West Chester, Pa., died peacefully in his sleep Friday, Nov. 27, 2009, at the Delaware Veterans Home, Milford, following a long fight against Alzheimer?s disease. Born Oct. 1, 1929, in Lebanon, Pa., he was the son of the late Harry and Mary Zentmeyer. He shared many memories of growing up and going to school at Mooseheart, Ill., where he graduated in 1947. His college career was interrupted by his service with the U.S. Army during the Korean War, where he did administrative work with the CIC, although he later graduated from Ohio Wesleyan with a degree in business administration. Soon afterward, he worked as a sales contractor with Armstrong World Industries out of their Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York and Malvern, Pa., offices. He retired in 1989 after 35 years of employment. Among his interests, Mr. Zentmeyer was an avid reader and enjoyed football, golf and classical and jazz music. He loved spending time with family and friends. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Alfred J. Zentmeyer, on April 5, 1994. A devoted husband and father, Mr. Zentmeyer is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Doreen; his daughter and son-in-law, Laura and Jay Lazzeri of Dover and their children, Jonathan, Sarah and Rebecca; and his son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Joyce Zentmeyer of Rootstown, Ohio, and their children, Thomas and Grace. He also is survived by a sister-in-law, Delores Zentmeyer; and many nieces and nephews.

"Hi Gary,
It is a long time since I heard from you. Wednesday is the day when we meet at the Archive. Ilse Saur is just re-sorting old documents and came across a paper concerning Roigheim. Joseph Walter had died about 10 years ago (inventory dated February 19, 1695, unfortunately this does not exist anymore) and he owed money to the church which he had borrowed. His possessions were very unimportant, some property in a bad condition or place that nobody wanted to buy, until finally one daughter (he had 9 children) got married to Jacob Centmayer, now bürgher (citizen -Ed) of this place, a former soldier. Unfortunately, it does not say where from. So, it was Ursula née Walter who Jacob Centmayer married in 1699.
It is not much information but I wanted to pass it on to you.
With best regards,

Marlies Kibler"

(This is the source for the surname of Jacob's wife Ursula)

234 A cabinetmaker, Jacob went to Huntsville, Missouri, whence he migrated with a party of men, by way of mule team, to California, and engaged in the hotel and livery business in Auburn, Placer County; was buried there with Masonic rites. -History of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania ZENTMYER, Jacob J. (I539)

237 A male descendant of this James was given the YDNA test. Matches and earliest ancestor are:
Walter Robison, who claims James Roberson 1737-1828 and Mary Fuqua 1740-1822 (MRCA likely in Scotland, no potential US connections)
Jessy Roberson, who also claims James and Mary (MRCA likely in Scotland, no potential US connections)
Ernest Carroll Roberson who also claims James Roberson (MRCA likely in Scotland, no potential US connections)
Scotty Robertson, who claims Daniel Robertson, b.1793 d. Aft 1860 Tenn (MRCA likely in Scotland, no potential US connections)
David Michael Robertson, who claims John Henry Robertson b. 1784 d. Aft 1880 (MRCA likely in Scotland, no potential US connections)
George Thomas Robison who claims James Robertson d.1748 Louisa Co. VA (possible US connections)
Matthew Lee Robertson who claims James Robertson d.1748 Louisa Co. VA (possible US connections)

238 A spinster, per Susan Kinch ZENTMYRE, Maria Barbara (I1848)
239 A thorough search of the 1930 census found no trace of Ella, Louise or James. It's quite possible that some tragedy took the lives of these three sometime soon after the 1920 Census was taken in January. Earl's marriage to his 2nd wife was Jun 1921. Ella and Earl's son Melvin is found in the 1930 Census listed as an institutionalized patient at Rosewood Center. Finchum, Ella Virginia (I2428)

242 According to "oral history" and/or family lore, the Strahorns were among the earliest homesteaders in Hardin and Franklin Counties. Supposedly the oxen died in Hardin County so some of the family decided to settle there. Other family members were determined to travel further so they hitched up the cow to pull the wagon. The cow died in Ackley (Franklin County) and they decided to give up and settle that area. My mother actually had the original oxen yoke hanging on her wall as a decoration for several years. It was given to her by Franklin. It was fascinating to me. If my memory is right, she eventually donated it to the Hardin County Historical Society." -Judi (Strahorn) Wiskus

STRAHORN, Joseph (I85962)
243 According to Dictionary of Scottish Immigrants to the U.S.A. by Donald Whyte, our Robert Strayhorn was born in Ayrshire, Scotland.

STRAYHORN, Robert (I86048)
244 According to a letter written by John William Zentmeyer to Rev. William DeShazo, Catharine and Burke Priddy moved at some point to Ohio. In The History of Kansas City, Missouri, it is written that soon after 1832 they moved from Virgina to Warren County, Ohio, and that Burke Priddy owned a plantation and a number of slaves in Virginia, but became a teacher in Ohio. The 1840 Census has Burke Priddy in Union, Warren, Ohio. PRIDDY, Burke (I1776)
245 According to a letter written by John William Zentmeyer to Rev. William DeShazo, Catharine and Burke Priddy moved to Ohio. In The History of Kansas City, Missouri, it is written that soon after 1832 they moved from Virgina to Warren County, Ohio. And that Burke owned a plantation and a number of slaves in Virginia, but became a teacher in Ohio. The 1840 Census has Burke Priddy in Union, Warren Ohio. ZENTMEYER, Catherine (I87152)
246 According to a letter written by John William Zentmeyer to Rev. William DeShazo, John was a surveyor prior to becoming Clerk of the Court. After his marriage to Martha Penn, John and Martha made their home in the Floyd Courthouse. They moved to Patrick County in 1855, and John engaged in the mercantile business in Mayo Forge for the remainder of his life. Sons Edwin and Peter were associated with him.

ZENTMEYER, John Newton (I1651)
247 According to Chataigne's 1888-89 Virginia Business Directory for Patrick County, 'Zentmeyer & Sanders' were Tobacco Manufacturers in Mayo Forge. ZENTMEYER, John Newton (I1651)
248 According to Chataigne's Virginia Gazetteer and Classified Business Directory, one E.P. Zentmeyer was the Postmaster in Mayo Forge, Virginia in 1888-89. ZENTMEYER, Edwin Penn (I1731)
249 According to family lore, Harrison Santmyer, supported the South during the Civil War. I was told by my Grandmother (Fanny Ethel Santmyer Rowley), that her grandfathers, William Burns Shaw and Harrison Santmyer, fought against each other during the war. I have found no evidence that Harrison actually fought in the Civil War. He was, however, involved in copper and wagon building during the War. Thus far, I have not been able to pinpoint his location during the War years. In 1860, Harrison lived in Hardy Co., VA (now WV). Prior to that, in 1854, he was in Rockingham Co., VA. I have to wonder if perhaps he may have returned to Hardy Co. to support the Union. Or perhaps, did he bring his wife and children back to Lost River to stay with her family, while he went off to serve in the Confederate, or, possibly the Union Army. Their sixth child, Aaron, was born in 1861. All previous children were born two years apart, followed by a three year gap between George and Aaron. Then there was not another birth until 1867. Could the reason for the six year gap be that Harrison was engaged in the War? By 1870, Harrison, now in MD, had buried Leah and their two youngest children, married again and started a second family. The family was in VA in 1876 and by 1879, had settled in PA. This is where they finally put their roots down in Fayette Co., Mt. Pleasant area. All his children from his first marriage, except Emily, were on their own by 1880. He died from a gun shot would, inflicted by his own gun. One story is that he was cleaning his gun and it went off accidently - another is he held the gun to his head and pulled the trigger.

"Harrison's death was self-inflicted (of this I am positive) and he is buried in MT. Pleasant, PA cemetery. My father made the gravestone on his burial place." (Glenn's father J. Joseph is the son of Harrison and Catherine Howell Santmyer.) "Harrison was born in Shenandoah Co., VA in 1828. He died in 1905. My grandfather was a son of Barney Santmyer and Martha Elly Caine, both of Shenandoah Co., VA. Both were born and died there. They were of some substance and property. Barney's father was Jacob Santmyer and mother Jane Knapps. They were married in Frederick Co., VA in 1794. I have related Jacob back to Lancaster Co., PA where he was a member of the 2nd Lancaster Militia during the American Revolution in the 1770's (these records are in the PA archives). In the 1790's Jacob served in the VA Militia in Winchester, VA. Quite a number of Santmyers were in the Confederate army during that war including Harrison's brothers and nephews, - but not Harrison. He conducted a blacksmith and horse dealing business during the war period."

Izetta Barbour lists the children as: Isaac B., Jasaby, Frank, Joseph and Brouciu.
Colleen Zak's lists the children as: Jacob, Robert, Isaac B (and step-daughter Emma)

I have found in my research records of the following children:
Jacob H., Lily, Robert R., Isaac Benton, Joseph, Franklin D. and Brancin. Lily and Jacob were twins. I have not found a death record for Lily, but her death was before 1880.

Take Rte 31, which becomes Main St. in the town of Mt. Pleasant; just on the edge of town, turn left at the corner of 31/Main and Raddock or Braddock St. At the corner is the Mt Pleasant Church of God. The cemetery is just a short distance down the road on the right. Catherine is buried beside Harrison. There are several other Santmyers buried in same area and two more graves closer to the cemetery road.

250 According to family lore, Minnie, the oldest of the three girls, always acted weak and faint so she could escape helping with the household tasks. They were raised to be proper young ladies and Minnie took well to this role. While her mother pampered her, thinking she was a sickly child, Fanny Ethel and Margaret did the chores. Minnie sat and practiced her sewing stitches and the proper way to hold her teacup. It seems this pampering went to her head and thus, she always wanted the biggest and the best. And, why not? She and George lived in Perryopolis in 1923, but by the time of Oscar's death (winter of 1924/25) they were living in Connellsville. A short time after, they moved to a beautiful big home
(presumably in Connellsville) that supposedly was financed in part with the settlement Helen Santmyer received for Oscar's death.
