707 Some of the following background information is excerpted from Hobart History and Genealogy, 1632-1956, compiled by Ethel Hobart Carothers. Later facts are supported by My Ancestors, by Irene Hobart, published in the Carthage Republican, February 8, 1933. Jonas Hobart's parents were Amos Hobart (born in 1774 in Lyme, Grafton County, New Hampshire, died in 1842 in or near Carthage, Hancock County, Illinois) and Keziah Marshall, nee Chase (born in 1772 in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, died in 1843 in Hancock County, Illinois).
Amos' parents were Jonas Hobart, born in what was then Massachusetts on November 15, 1744, and Betty Kemp. After Jonas' brother, Isaac, was killed at Bunker Hill, Jonas joined the Continental Army and served for three years. At the Battle of Ticonderoga he was severely wounded in the cheek, but survived and collected a yearly pension of $96.00 for the rest of his life. He moved west to Illinois in 1823, died ten years later and was buried near Rushville in Schuyler County, Illinois.
Of Amos and Keziah's children, the eldest two, Jonas and Joshua C., were born in New Hampshire. The family moved to Essex, Chittenden County, Vermont, where four more children were born: Amasa, Anson, Norman, Mary Ann and Eliza Ann. They moved to Allegheny County, New York about 1816. Amasa and Mary Ann did not live to adulthood. The remaining four came to Illinois.
In addition to Jonas' family, a number of Norman's children are also buried at Webster Cemetery.

708 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)
 
709 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 Conoway (I1978)
 
710 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)

721 Sudden Death in Clay

Mathias Meiley, a well-known resident of Clay, died on Sunday quite suddenly. He was seated on the porch at his home when he was stricken with apoplexy. Dr. J.Y. Kline was summoned, but was unable to save his life, and death ensued in about half an hour after the attack. Deceased was in his 88th year. He was a former resident of Lexington, and in earlier life was a bricklayer by trade. He is survived by his second wife and fifteen children. Five children are dead. Deceased was a member of the Lutheran Church. The funeral took place to-day [sic] at 10 o'clock at the Brickerville Emanuel's Lutheran church.

724 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. She is survived by one daughter, Victoria Zentmyer Bergstrom, Julian, Calif.; one son, David Taylor Zentmyer Jr., Madison, Wis.; three grandchildren; one sister, Gwen Radebach Rieman, North Manchester, Ind.; and one brother, John Ellsworth Radebach Jr., Osceola Mills.

730 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

731 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)
 
732 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.

742 The Hobart Electric Manufacturing Co. was founded in 1897 by Clarence Charles Hobart to make electric motors. They soon started making electric meat choppers as well. In 1913 the company reorganized as The Hobart Manufacturing Co. The following year they introduced their first commercial mixer. That same year, C.C. Hobart left the company and, along with his three sons, established his own manufacturing business, Hobart Brothers Co. In 1974 the name of the parent company changed to The Hobart Corp. In 1981 the company was acquired by Dart & Kraft, Inc. In 1986 Dart & Kraft, the result of a merger, split apart, and the Hobart brand and operations became part of the new Premark International. In 1999, Illinois Tool Works acquired the PMI Food Equipment Group, which included Hobart. HOBART, Clarence Charles (I3175)

745 The Philadelphia Business Directories listed J. Brutsche as a merchant for the years 1833 - 1836, a boarding house owner in 1837, and then for the years 1838 - 1853, J. Brutsche was listed as a milliner, so likely Jeanette. Then Joseph was listed from 1854 - 1877 as a water color manufacturer.  BRUTSCH╔, Joseph (I87190)
 
746 The public record for Kenneth LeRoy Brereton is a colorful one. He was recorded in the 1910 US Census in the home of his parents, Archibald and Mary Brereton. In the 1920 US Census, at age 11, he was a boarder in the home of Kate Stackpole, with no reference to his parents. He had a busy 1927, he was listed both as a student in Brookline Massachusetts, and also as a passenger on a voyage from Copenhagen to New York. In 1929 he married Loretta M. LaPointe in Rye, New York. In the 1930 US Census, he was living at the home of his mother and stepfather in North Branford, and claimed to be working as an 'aircraft production manager.' He was listed as married, but neither Loretta nor any alternative wife were noted at that address. According to the 1937 newspaper articles reporting his marriage to Dorothy Dudley, Kenneth claimed to be a graduate Norwich Military Academy and of Yale University, employed as a 'manufacturing chemist' at Brereton Laboratories in New Haven. A 1939 newsletter for Norwich Military Academy, renamed Norwich University, listed a change of address for him to Northport Conn., c/o Brereton Laboratories. But Northport was actually in New York, so more likely Northford Connecticut, the place Kenneth listed on his WWII draft registration. In the 1940 US Census he was listed as divorced, living once again with with his mother and stepfather in North Branford, working as a Rural US Mail Carrier. (his mother was a Postmistress there) He was listed in the 1941 New Haven Directory as an Insurance Agent, with new wife Eleanor.

A Google query returns only two results for "Brereton Laboratories," they are both noted above, and the Yale University Library Manuscripts and Archives staff confirm Brereton was never a student there. Norwich University confirms Brereton was a student there, but they cannot confirm a graduation. 
BRERETON, Kenneth LeRoy (I534)
 
747 The Rev. Joshua Hobart was the second pastor of the Puritan church in Southold, Long Island, serving the congregation from 1674 until his death in 1716. Born in Hingham, a town in southern Norfolk, England, he was the son of the Rev. Peter Hobart, and had emigrated to colonial Massachusetts with his parents in 1635, while still a young child. He graduated from Harvard University in 1650, and according to the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Volume 50, in 1656 married Margaret Vassal (b. 1633) of Barbadoes Island, the daughter of William and Ann Vassal, formerly of Scituate, Massachusetts. Widowed by July 1657, it is believed that his first marriage was childless. He subsequently went to England, where he remained for about two years. He returned to Massachusetts in 1669, and in the early 1670's married Mrs. Mary Rainford (nee Sunderland), the widow of Jonathan Rainford. Six children were born to the couple during the decade spanning 1672-1682. Surviving his second wife, who died in 1698, by some 31 years, the Rev. Hobart was 87 years old at the time of his death in February 1716-17. His grave is marked by a slate ledger stone which was probably carved and imported from England. HOBART, Reverend Joshua (I2786)
 
748 The Surname was also frequently seen as Centmeyer. In German, words beginning with Z and C both begin with an identical "TS" sound, so the name was recorded as the scribe chose to write it.

749 The timing and circumstances of Robert's purported residence in Ireland are uncertain, as Ireland was not mentioned in either of the two published sources, neither the Cope and Ashmeade nor the Donald Whyte volumes. And yet Ulster, Ireland and Ayrshire, Scotland are only thirteen miles apart, and workers traveled often between the two provinces. Robert's occupation was listed as a 'weaver' when he arrived in Philadelphia, and linen weaving had been a robust industry in Ireland, but was in recession by the mid 1700s due to competition from less expensive mechanized American cotton weaving. So far we have found only a single reference to a Robert Strayhorn/Strahorn in Ireland, in a 1761 newspaper article.

The 1790 US Census records Robert Strayhorn in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania with nine household members. It is not clear who in additon to Nathaniel, Samuel, and Margaret the additional household members were, although it was common to take in renters if one had the space.

 
STRAYHORN, Robert (I86048)
 
750 The towns of Nieuw Amsterdam (New Amsterdam) and Breuckelen (Brooklyn) as well as the other four towns of New Amsterdam were conquered by England in 1664 and became Kings County, New York. DORLANDT, Jan Gerretse (I85872)
