HOBART, Sidney Little (I85664)
 
666 Sidney Smith Legate was born on May 5, 1830 in Leominster, MA. He was the son of Capt. William Morris Legate and Nancy Hadley Legate. Around 1850 Sidney moved to New Hampshire to teach school. There he met Hannah Wiggin Smith (b. 1830) and they were married 4/8/1852. They went on to have four children, Walter Scott (b. 5/9/1853), Russell Smith (b. 9/9/1855), May Augusta (b. 9/9/1956), and Anna Louise (b. 5/28, 1862). Hannah died a few months after the birth of Anna on 8/7/1862. After his wife's death, Sidney disappeared from his children's lives for a while and they were brought up by various relatives. In 1873 we find Sidney working as a contractor and builder in Denison & Sherman, Texas. His son, Russell, joined him there as did his daughter, May in around 1876. He briefly lived in Fort Worth, TX in 1877. On May 10, 1882 he married Catherine V. Turner in Chicago, IL. He returned to Texas to work as a builder because we find him back in Denison in 1887. He and Catherine eventually settled in Pinconning, MI where they bought a farm. They lived the remaining years of their life there. Sidney died on May 29, 1913. (Bio information from contributor Lisa Morrow) LEGATE, Sidney Smith (I85655)
 
667 Sidney's granddaughter, May Hobart Zentmyer, said that Sidney died from lung disease resulting from his exposure to flour dust, a hazard unrecognized at the time.

674 Some researchers believe that the James, John, and Mark in the 1810 census record were brothers, which is likely, and that their father was the Thomas Marlow who died in Iredell County in 1811, which is unlikely given that none of the three were named in Thomas' Will.

 
MARLOW, John (I3231)
 
675 Sometime after 1880 and by 1900, he was admitted to the Iowa State Hospital for the Insane in Mt Pleasant, Henry Co. This is most likely where he died in 1916 as he is listed as an inmate here in the 1910 U.S. Census and again in 1915 in the Iowa State Census. ZENTMEYERS, David (I1978)
 
676 Sometime during the 1870's Charles S and Martha Kiddoo Zentmire went to western Iowa, and in 1877 they moved to Rice County, Kansas. The move there was made in a covered wagon. They lived on a farm until June 1880 when an epidemic of typhoid took the lives of Charles and Martha in Valley Twp, Rice Co. Their grandmother and an uncle came to Kansas to get their 3 small girls and took them back to family in Mercer Co, Illinois.  ZENTMIRE, Charles Sylvester (I2860)

690 Sunday News (Lancaster, PA) - November 19, 1995

Mary Radebach Zentmyer 79, formerly of Lancaster, died Nov. 1 after a long illness at the home of her daughter in Julian, Calif. She was the widow of Dr. David Taylor Zentmyer, who died Aug. 8, 1990. A teacher, she was a 1934 graduate of Osceola Mills High School and a 1938 graduate of Juniata College with a bachelor's degree in home economics and dietetics. While a senior at Juniata she was named "Queen of the May." Formerly of Lewiston and New York, N.Y., Mrs. Zentmyer lived in the Lancaster area from November 1947 to June 1992, when she moved to California.
She was a member of First Presbyterian Church, the Lancaster Country Club and the Hamilton Club. She was a past treasurer of the Women's Symphony Association of the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra, a past director of the Lancaster Day Nursery and a past president of the Art Class. She had been active with the Friends of the Lancaster Public Library, the Iris Club, the Investment Club and the American Association of University Women. Mrs. Zentmyer enjoyed playing bridge, reading, flower arranging and cooking. She was a competitive golfer, winning tournaments at the Lancaster Country Club. Born in Osceola Mills, she was a daughter of the late John Ellsworth Radebach and Orrie Ola Dotts Radebach.

694 The 1810 US Census shows David in Washington Twp, Franklin Co. Pennsylvania, which was the location of his father Christopher's farm. His son John's obituary states: "John Zentmyer saw the light of day in Williamsport, Maryland March 24, 1808. When he was quite young his parents removed to Waynesboro, Franklin County." -Huntingdon Monitor, 19 Mar 1891. The following additional sources convince us that David's home and tannery were originally in Washington Co., Maryland before he moved to be near his father. (Waynesboro is within Washington Twp)

-- ". . . Elizabeth Zentmeyer, who was born in 1803 near the Mason-Dixon line at the foot of South Mountain, in Washington County, Md. where her father was for many years engaged in the tanning business." -Biographical Annals of Franklin County
-- ". . . his mother, Elizabeth (Zentmyer) Hoover was born in Washington County, Maryland in 1803." -History of Cumberland Valley
-- ". . . Elizabeth Zentmyer, daughter of David Zentmyer, who conducted a tannery at the foot of the mountains between Rouzerville, Pennsylvania and Edgemont, Maryland." -Biographical Sketches, p.195
-- "His wife Elizabeth, a daughter of David Zentmyer, was born at the foot of the South Mountain--westside--where her father had been engaged in tanning for many years." -Historical Sketch of Franklin County.
-- "Near Pen Mar" -David Taylor Zentmeyer

695 The birth record below is the only instance of G÷rg that has been found in the record. It is assumed that he died young, but no death record has been found. ZENTMEYER, Johann G÷rg (I1631)
 
696 The deed by which Christopher conveyed his farm to his son Daniel was also his will. It is an interesting document for several reasons. First, John Wesley Zentmyer was a special grandson to Christopher and Barbara Zentmeyer. When the will was written in 1824, there was a special provision for John to receive two hundred dollars from the estate at Christopher's death. By 1824 Christopher had as many as eighteen additional grandchildren, none of whom were similarly provided for. The will also indicates that one John Zentmyer was living nearby at that time, and since Christopher's son John was living in Brownsville, Virginia by then, one must conclude the John residing near Christopher's farm must have been John Wesley Zentmyer. The will also provided for a shed to be built and finished adjoining John Zentmyer's house for Christopher to enjoy during the remainder of his natural life. So it appears John Wesley Zentmyer and his wife Eleanor cared for grandparents Christopher and Barbara into their old age, and were therefore rewarded in the will.

Second, the will illuminates for us the diversity of economic activity on the farm. There are references to crops of wheat, rye, corn, hay, and apples; a stable with cows, horses, cattle, and hogs; a weaver shop, and wool, so presumably sheep; and firewood production indicating logging.

Third, the will settled a knotty legal question, namely do certain economic provisions in a grant deed survive a foreclosure. The deed stated that "Daniel Zentmeyer engages to give to his father Christopher Zentmeyer yearly and every year during his natural life and the life of his wife Barbara twenty bushels of wheat, twenty bushels of rye, and twenty bushels of corn, also two good loads of hay, and one third of the rows of apple trees divided the short way and pasture two cows and one horse with his own cattle also to let them keep four hogs which are to run with his hogs." Neighbor George Harbaugh took title to the farm in 1828 after a foreclosure sale, and ceased fulfilling the provisions Daniel Zentmeyer had agreed to in the deed. The Zentmeyers sued Harbaugh. The court held: "I look upon it as a covenant to pay rent in kind; and if it be, it is a covenant running with the land, and the defendant is clearly liable; for, upon such covenants, which concern real property, or the estate therein, the assignee of the lessee is liable for an action for a breach of covenant after the assignment of the estate to him." So Harbaugh was required to continue supplying the goods to Christopher as set forth in the deed.

700 The first minister of the Hingham congregation who built Old Ship was the Rev. Peter Hobart, who had attended what was then Puritan-dominated University of Cambridge. Natives of Hingham in the county of Norfolk in East Anglia, Peter Hobart, his father Edmund and his brother Capt. Joshua Hobart were among Hingham's most prominent early settlers. Edmund Hobart and his wife Margaret (Dewey), said Cotton Mather, "were eminent for piety...and feared God above many." Assisting Hobart in the foundation of the congregation was Rev. Robert Peck, Hobart's senior and formerly rector of St Andrew's Church in Hingham, Norfolk. After 44 years of service, minister Peter Hobart died on January 20, 1679, on the eve of the building of the new house of worship. Hobart's diary of events in Hingham, begun in the year 1635, was continued on his death by his son David. By the time Old Ship was built, Harvard-educated Rev. John Norton, who had been ordained by Peter Hobart, had assumed Hobart's ministry. While Rev. Norton was the first pastor of the congregation at its new home in Old Ship Church, Rev. Peter Hobart was the founder of the congregation, although he died before the new meetinghouse was finished.
