706 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)

709 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)
 
710 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)
 
711 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.

 
ZENTMAIR, Johann Jacob (I1626)
 
712 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.

714 Thelma H. Zentmyer, age 92, of Upper Arlington, died Saturday, July 12, 1997 at First Community Village.

She was a Council Member of the First Community Village; Member of Community Chapter #488 Order of the Eastern Star; Areme Club #11 Group 1, Ladies Oriental Shrine, Thea Court No. 5, and Northwester Women's Club.

She was preceded in death by her husband William S. Zentmyer. Survived by dear friends and loved ones.

715 There is a Bernhard Nicholas Santmyer b.1735 listed in FamilySearch IGI and elsewhere as the father of Jacob and George, which we believe to be an unfortunate synthesis by a well-intentioned compiler of our Bernhard and another actual immigrant, Nicholas Sandmeier, who arrived on 9 Oct 1775 on the good ship King of Prussia. I have convinced FamilySearch to quarantine this record, although no one can remove it entirely except for its contributor, who will not respond to us. This bogus record also lists the surname of Bernhard's first wife as 'Luther,' for which we have found no evidence, see Catharina LNU, but this unsourced 'Luther' record has generated records 60+ trees on Ancestry.com. ZENTMEYER, Johann Bernhard (I0050)
 
716 There is a great possibility that Helen's family relocated to Morgantown, VA (now WV) shortly after Helen's birth. Her father, William Burns Shaw, enlisted in the Union Army at New Creek, VA (now Keyser, WV) and joined for duty on 23 September 1861 in Morgantown. They probably stayed with Helen's uncle - her mother's brother, Andrew Jackson Koontz, who lived in Morgantown with his family. By late 1862, the family was back in Barton/Moscow, MD. The Civil War must have had a tremendous effect on Helen, for even though she was very young (she was only four when the war ended in 1865), she had vivid memories of a Confederate raid on the town. The soldiers ransacked and burned all the businesses, except the general store (which her father ran) and this was because it had bars on the windows and they mistook it for a jail. While the buildings were burning, the soldiers rode through the town with bolts of material that were unrolled and flowing like a long flag behind them. Helen was raised a prim and proper young lady. The family had at least one slave, Mary Perry, who helped raise the children. Helen dearly loved her; Mary was more like a member of the family, than a slave. At the end of the Civil War, she chose to remain with the Shaw family. Even though, Helen came from a well-to-do family and had a lot of advantages, there was a certain amount of sadness during her growing up years. Helen was the fourth child, but her two older brothers were buried even before her birth. Then her younger brother, Millered Stewart, not quite two, died in 1867. Less than a year after her marriage, her father died. Her brother Oscar K. died in 1884 and her little sister, Minnie, in 1886, followed by her mother a few months later. By the time Helen was 26, she had lost her entire family, except for her older sister, Fannie Susan.
Helen married at 17 to James J. Santmyer, who was employed as a coal miner, and most likely worked in the Shaw Mines. In 1882, her mother, along with Oscar and Mary (Minnie), moved to Keyser, WV. Her brother, Franklin, was managing a hotel in Keyser, and they possibly went to live with him or near him. It is also possible that Helen and James moved to Keyser around that time - however by 1884 they were in MT. Pleasant, PA. Even though the move to PA put many miles between Helen and her family and relatives, she always kept close ties to them. Helen frequently traveled the great distance by train to join her relatives for weddings, funerals or other special occasions. In her later years, Helen joined the Christian Scientist religion. In 1927 she came down with pneumonia - following the beliefs of her religion, she refused medical treatment. Helen died from the pneumonia. The Wm. I. Stewart Funeral Home in Swissvale, PA handled all the arrangements; she was buried in MT. Washington Cemetery in Perryopolis, PA.

721 This Eliza 'Saintmyers' (per the marriage record) is presumed to be the daughter of John and Catherine for the following reasons: 1) The Census Records for both 1810 and 1820 reflect a heretofore unidentified daughter, born to them before 1810; 2) The 1860 census has Eliza born c.1818, the 1870 census has her born c.1817; the 1880 census has her born c.1806, and her headstone has her born 1811-12; and 3) Frederick County, where she married and was buried, was a stone's throw away from Browntown, in (then) Shenandoah Co., where John and Catherine long resided. Apart from the (not uncommon) multiple birth-year indications, here are no facts known to us which conflict with this conclusion, and no other families which could even remotely be considered to be her family of origin.  SAINTMYERS, Eliza (I3025)

723 Thomas Benton Limbocker was born December 22, 1843 in Columbus Junction, Louisa County, Iowa, the son of Uriah and Janette (Kirk) Limbocker. He enlisted in the 5th Iowa Infantry, in July of 1861 at age 17. (The official Roster and Records of Iowa Soldiers in the War of the Rebellion gives his age as 21 at the time of enlistment on 1 July 1861.)

Thomas was joined in the Regiment by half-brother of Sherman Kirk, and cousin Jeremiah (Jerry) M. Limbocker who also enlisted in the Fifth Iowa.

On 1 January of 1864, Thomas reenlisted in Larkinsville, AL with other soldiers from the 5th Iowa Infantry to form Company G, of the 5th Iowa Cavalry. He served with the 5th Iowa Cavalry for the remained of the war as part of Major General James H. Wilson's Cavalry Corps.

In 1867 Thomas and his wife of one year, Caroline (Sigafoos) Limbocker, along with his half-brother Sherman and his wife Lucinda, journeyed to Kansas to homestead in Neosho County.

Thomas and his family remained in Erie, Neosho Co. throughout his life, farming and raising their many children.

Thomas died on April 20th, 1908 from injuries he sustained while trying to stop a runaway horse team and wagon outside his feed lot.

724 Thomas Marlow was deeded 400 acres in Rowan County in 1779, and 200 acres in Rutherford County the same year. MARLOW, Thomas (I3254)
 
725 Thomas, his second wife Rebecca Jane, and their son Frank Kellog Strahorn are all buried in the same plot in Rosedale Cemetery, just west of downtown Los Angeles. I suspect the headstone was installed by his son Robert Edmund Strahorn after he became wealthy, since Thomas was a man of little means. A much more modest stone can be seen in front of the larger one, which reads, "T.F.S. Husband." No headstone is in evidence for Rebecca Jane, but she was not Robert's mother.

737 We do not have a surname for Bernhard's wife. She was identified as 'Catharina' both in the birth record for her son Johannes in 1763, and as a baptismal sponsor with Bernhard for Anna Margaretha Geister on 7 Aug 1760. This dates their wedding to around 1760 when Bernhard would have been twenty years old.

The surname 'Luther' has been put forth on the internet for her, with some claiming she was Maria Catharina Luther, born 1734 in Herbitzheim, Bas-Rhin, Alsace. This Maria Catharina Luther did in fact emigrate to Philadelphia, arriving with her parents on 15 Sep 1749 aboard the Phoenix, according to Strassburger-Hinke's Pennsylvania German Pioneers. But according to Annette Burgert's Eighteenth Century Emigrants, this Maria Catharina married Josiah Harper on 10 Sep 1763, only weeks after Johannes Zentmeyer was born, so she was not Bernhard's wife.

Others identify her as Catharina Elisabetha Luther baptized 8 Jan 1744 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. But the Kichenbücher (church records) reveal that this Catharina was married in 1765 in Frankfurt and died there in 1782.

The only place we have found the surname 'Luther' connected to Bernhard other than in Ancestry.com member trees is in the IGI on FamilySearch, where Bernhard is wrongly identified in a member-submitted tree as 'Bernhard Nicholas Santmyer, b. 1735' with a wife whose surname is 'Luther.' We believe this is the source of the 60+ Ancestry.com member trees which identify her as 'Luther.'

It is our suspicion that some Ancestry.com tree-makers took 'Catharina' from our website and combined it with 'Luther' in the IGI record. When you then search 'Catharina Luther,' online, the two individuals above can be found.

Anyone having any original source information for the Catharina's surname - family bibles, hand-written genealogies, anything - please contact me.

738 We have inferred this relationship because there were two Abraham Lowmans listed in 1820 US Census in Buffalo, Armstrong, Pennsylvania, whose ages were a generation apart. LOWMAN, Abraham (I1976)
 
739 We have normalized the surname to Zehntmeyer, but spellings in the records for Simon also include Zehendmeyer, Zehentmeyer, Zehetmeyer, and Zechetmayr.  ZEHNTMEYER, Simon (I67769)
 
740 We have only found one record for Margaretha. She is recorded as the wife of Bern. Zeidmayer, as a sponsor for the birth of Joseph Lauman, son of Bernhard's sister Magdelena Lauman on 14 Oct 1781.  Family F700
 
741 When Delilah was four years old, the weather was cool and she was alone in the house. She gathered some firewood in her apron to put on the fireplace and the apron caught fire and she died from the burns. She told the family she had pulled the water bucket over her, but the bucket was empty. Benjamin left not long after this happened. She is buried near her mother's headstone in an unmarked grave.

742 When James and Helen married they were both living in Allegany Co., MD. James listed his occupation as a miner on their marriage application which was issued on 20 August 1875. There was no record of the marriage as the minister did not return the license. Helen was listed as a maid of 17 and James as a 21 year old. When they were first married, the couple lived in Keyser, WV. They were probably in Keyser until about 1884. From Keyser, the family moved to MT. Pleasant, PA. It's confusing as to how long they remained in MT. Pleasant. Interview notes show the family in Scottsdale, PA from 1890 to 1895. But, these same notes list Minnie's 1888 birth in Scottsdale, F. Ethel's 1890 birth in Scottsdale and Margaret's 1895 birth in Star Junction, PA. F. Ethel Santmyer Rowley supplied all the above information. However, the copy of Ethel's and Stephen's marriage certificate gives MT. Pleasant as her place of birth. I think she probably remembered her place of birth better at age 21 than at age 85. This would place them in MT. Pleasant until May 1890 and would still allow for the move to Scottsdale in 1890. Margaret's birth in June of 1895 places them in Star Junction and still allows for them to be in Scottsdale in the earlier part of that year. They remained in Star Junction until 1918 when they moved to Homestead, PA. The family lived on a rented farm in Scottsdale. James was working for the B&O Railroad. He was an engineer on the passenger train that ran from Scottsdale to South Bend (an area in Westmoreland Co.). B&O wanted to move the family to South Bend, but before the move transpired there was a train wreck at South Bend. His wife, Helen, then refused to move as she didn't want him to have that dangerous run. James then took a more local run and the family moved to Star Junction. It appears that the family attended the Methodist Episcopal Church during their early years in Star Junction. Somewhere around 1902 they were attending the Baptist Church, Helen was baptized here on 17 December 1905. I had no record of James being baptized, but would have to guess, he was. Around the 1920's they became Christian Scientists - perhaps when they moved to Homestead. James belonged to the Knights of Pythias, Prospect Lodge 507, Star Junction and to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, Tygarts Valley Lodge No. 284. Upon moving to Homestead, James operated a grocery and confectionery store at 141 East 16th Avenue from 1918 until January 1922, when he retired. He and Helen then went to live with their daughter Ethel and family in Hayes, PA. He died while visiting at his son Oscar's home in Star Junction. The Ira Blair Funeral Home in Perryopolis handled the funeral arrangements. James was buried in MT Washington Cemetery in Perryopolis, PA.

743 While Frank died at the notorious Libby Prison in Richmond, Virginia, it is not known where his remains are buried. A Memorial Stone sits in the Zentmyer family plot in the Alexandria Presbyterian Cemetery, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, and lists his date of death as 27 December.

"Maj. Frank Zentmyer, of Huntingdon, wounded and taken prisoner by the rebels at the battle of Fredericksburg, died of his injuries, at Richmond, on the 31st."

Democratic Standard, Hollidaysburg, Pa., Wednesday, January 28, 1863

"Maj. Frank Zentmyer.- The father of Major Zentmyer has received a letter from Richmond informing him of the death of his brave son. The Major lost a leg at Fredericksburg, was taken prisoner and sent to Richmond where he died on the 31st."

746 William Garber was born in Rockingham county, Va., September 28, 1833, and died at 7:45 a. m., October 19, 1926, aged 93 years and 20 days.

In his early youth he moved to Owen county, Ind. In 1854 he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Pettyman, who died a year later. To this union was born one son Henry Garber.

On Nov. 17, 1861, he was united in marriage to Jane Wark and to this union were born six children, Mrs. Emma West, George Garber, Noble Garber, Mrs. Adelina Swanson, Nathan Garber and Mrs. Zora Botts. 21 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildrensurvive him. He was preceded in death by his wife in 1908 and two sons, Henry in 1889 and Noble, who died in 1923.

He served in the Union army during the Civil War. In June 1870 he came with his wife and four small children from Webster county, Iowa settling on a homestead four and one-half miles northwest of Scandia, where he lived for 35 years. In 1905 he moved from the farm to Scandia and lived here continuously until his death. He was the oldest of the early settlers remaining in this community and a pioneer, who shared with the others all the hardships of the pioneer life and assisting in the settlement and development of this community.

748 William Harrison (Harry) was probably born in Moscow/Barton area of Allegany Co., MD. (There is a slim chance that the family lived in the Keyser, WV area at the time of his birth). Family lore tells that the Santmyer boys were "real hell raisers" and Harry was certainly not one to pass up a good time. Harry supposedly was a well-meaning roustabout who felt obligated to share himself with all the girls. As well as a drinker, it seems that Harry was also a gambler. In fairness to Harry, perhaps with the loss of his young wife and third child, he was "drowning his sorrows" in women, booze and gambling. They lived their life on the wild side, worked hard and died tragic deaths. From the tales I heard, I imagined the Santmyer brothers donned in cowboy boots and hats, and always chewing a wad of tobacco - but the few pictures I've seen, portray them more like refined bankers.

Harry, as he was called, was named for both his grandfathers - Harrison Santmyer and William Burns Shaw.

Harry possibly married again after Sadie's death; although, his sister, Fanny Ethel Santmyer Rowley, insists this is not the case. There was an entry in the family Bible under "Marriages"....Harry Wm Santmyer (name also appears as Harry Wm. for marriage to Sadie) - Myrtle Renmyer 30 Dec. (no year is listed, but it appears between 1913 and 1921 entries). Additional information, received from his grand-daughter, Anna Mae Waggett Walls, states that Harry never remarried.
NOTE - January 2006 UPDATE: News article found in the 28 December 1917 edition of the Connellsville Daily Courier "Wed in Pittsburg. Harry Santmyer of Star Junction and Myrtle Renko of Manowa were granted a license to wed in Pittsburg Yesterday."

Harry was killed in a terrible railroad accident in which he was pinned by the coupling apparatus between two railway cars. There wasn't much they could do for him, yet he lingered in pain for several hours in the Fairmont, WV hospital. Funeral services were held by the Christian Church in Perryopolis, PA - burial was in MT. Washington Cemetery.
