Harriet D. PRINCE was born about 1848 in New York.
Bartholomew "Barthel" PROBST was born in 1626 in Ettischweyl, Allgau, Bavaria, Germany. He died on 12 Apr 1689 in Kandel, Der Pfalz, Germany. His will was not probated until 1715. His full given name appears to have been Bartholomew. He is recorded in the land transfer records of Ettensweiler in 1652, probably for selling land there; the land was probably his father's. Those records show his name as Bartholomaus Probst.
He must have left Ettensweiler for Der Pfalz shortly thereafter, for he was married in January 1653 in Kandel. Parents: Rudolph PROBST.
Christophel PROBST was born on 31 Mar 1661 in Kandel, Der Pfalz, Germany. His exact birth date is not known; the Mar 31 1661 date is of his christening. Bill Brobst has a copy of the birth and marriage records, in the German Pfalz file. He was baptized on 31 Mar 1661 in Kandel, Der Pfalz, Germany. He died on 14 Feb 1719 in Kandel, Der Pfalz, Germany. Will was probated 1 Apr 1727 in Kandel; wife not living at that time. Actually, she had died a few weeks earlier. Why it took so long (8 years) for probate is not known, except perhaps that the younger children were not yet of age. Church records show his name as Christoph, as do several historical reports. Christophel was a master potter (Meistertopfer) in Middle Kandel. Church records call him a Burger and Haffner in Kandel. Parents: Bartholomew "Barthel" PROBST and Susanna FISCHER.
Hans Michel PROBST was born about 1531 in Kanton Berne, Switzerland. He died in 1577 in Switzerland. He had a brother, Benedikt, from whom spring quite a separate chain of Probsts, some of whom are known to have migrated to the USA and settled in Utah, and are documented in the archives of the Mormon Church.
Children were: Niklaus PROBST.
Major Johann Michael PROBST was born on 13 Mar 1701 in Kandel, Der Pfalz, Germany. Another record says his birth date was Mar 13 1707. This must have been a mis-reading of the German script "1" which often looks like a "7". The 1701 birth date is verified in the baptismal records in Kandel and in the Lineage Succession List from Kandel. He immigrated on 17 Oct 1732 to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He came to America in 1732, arriving in Philadelphia on the pink (ship) John and William on Octobert 17, 1732. He came with his brother Philipp Jacob (and family) and his sister Elisabetha Margaretha (and her husband). Since winter's onset was near, they probably remained in Philadelphia over the winter, gathering supplies and equipment, and left for the Allemaengle in early spring.
When he came to America, he was already 31 years old. Since it would be most unusual for a man not to have married and started a family in his early 20s, it is possible that he already done that, and left a wife and some children behind. It is possible they might have died, and that released him to come to America, or he might have been so driven to start a new life he just left them behind. They might not have wanted to face the unknowns of the American wilderness. However, according to German records, in 1727 Michael was a travelling potter, not married, and was listed on the ship's manifest as still single when he emigrated, so it is assumed that he did not marry in Germany.
He died about 1771 in Lynn Twp., Lehigh Co., Pennsylvania. His death date is not certain. Most records show "about 1771"; one says "after 1790". His death location is also uncertain, but was most likely in a private cemetery on his farmsite.
He served in the military in Revolutionary War. He served in the Rev. War as a major in the Northampton Militia.
He received his citizenship papers on September 10 1761 in Philadelphia.
His farm was in Lynn Township, Northampton County (now Lehigh County), about 7 miles southeast of his brother's (Philipp Jacob's) farm which was in Albany Twp.
Parents: Christophel PROBST and Eva Christina HOFFMAN.
Spouse: Anna Maria KERR. Major Johann Michael PROBST and Anna Maria KERR
were married between 1732 and 1735 in Pennsylvania. Sometime between
his arrival in Philadelphia and mid-1735, Johann Michael married. He might have
married during the winter in Philadelphia, or might have found his future wife
in the Allemaengle. Birth and baptismal records of his children indicate that
her name was Maria or Anna Maria, a name quite common in those days. The marriage
record has not been found, and her maiden name is still unproven; several long-time
Brobst researchers believe her maiden name to be Kerr (or Kehr), and that is
what is shown here.
Captain Mathias George PROBST was born on 17 Mar 1736 in Lynn Twp., Lehigh Co., Pennsylvania. Possibly in Albany Twp, Berks Co, PA . He lived in Lynn Twp., Lehigh Co., Pennsylvania in 1762. He owned up to 300 acres at various times. He died on 12 Dec 1792 in Lynn Twp., Lehigh Co., Pennsylvania. His will (written in German) is dated Dec 12 1792; probated in Easton on Jan 15 1793 (#1541). Michael, Samuel, Daniel were executors. Mathias was very literate, and wrote clearly. Will translated by Lewis Donat. He may have actually died some days later than Dec 12. He was buried in Stoney Run, Albany Twp., Berks Co., Pennsylvania. Jerusalem Union (Red) Church. He was baptized in Stoney Run, Albany Twp., Berks Co., Pennsylvania. Jerusalem Union (Red) Church. He served in the military in Revolutionary War. He served in the Revolutionary War as a soldier in the Berks County Militia, and later as a captain in the Continental Line, under the command of LtCol Michael Brobst.
"There is a story that he and some of his men were camped about 20-30 miles from Philadelphia early in the war. [On July 14, 1777, he took the oath of allegiance to Penna in Philadelphia.] As the British were advancing on Philadelphia, in late August of 1777, Mathias and his men, with Jacob Leeser and several others, went there and took the Liberty Bell, weighing over a ton, along with a dozen other bells, with them from Philadelphia, through Bethlehem, and buried it inside of the Zion Reformed Church in Allentown, Lehigh County, on Hamilton Street, between 6th and 7th Streets. In Bethlehem, the Bell was transferred to a wagon belonging to Jacob Mickley for the remainder of the journey. After the war, they returned it to Philadelphia. A bronze tablet commemorating the event was placed on the church in 1908.
"The large, heavy Conestoga-type wagon, belonging to Frederick Lieser, was drawn by six black horses. It was the largest and heaviest wagon at the market in Philadelphia. On the way to Bethlehem, Brobst, Leaser, and the accompanying troops stopped overnight at the Red Lion Hotel in Quakertown.
But it broke down in a mud-hole in front of the old Sun Inn at Bethlehem, while it was being used to haul the Liberty Bell, was stored for many years in a barn that stood on the farm of Jesse D. Follweiler, who had inherited the farm from his grandfather, Bernhard Follweiler. The front axle, which had broken, had been repaired, and the wheels removed. The Follweiler children later played on the wagon for decades. In 1855, lightning struck the barn and destroyed it and the wagon. The only part that was preserved was the heavy iron brake handle and ratchet, which was taken to Ohio by a member of the Follweiler family to migrated to Ohio in the late 1850s or early 1860s. (Was that Susanna Follweiler, mother of Obadiah Brobst?).
(Much of the above information on the bell may be found in "History of Lynn Township" by Arthur Klingaman, 1974.)
He is listed on the DAR Patriot Index as a "Captain", and is on the DAR Roll of Honor.
When Rev. Daniel Schumacher died, Matthias became guardian of Rev. Schumacher's son Johannes. Johannes was the g'g'g'g'grandfather of Annie Z. .
In 1777, after bringing the bell from Philadelphia to Allentown, he was commissioned a Justice of the Peace in Northampton County, and a Judge from 1777 to 1784. For that reason, he is referred to in some records as Matthias Probst, Esq.
Matthias bought 325 acres of land in Mecklenburg (now Lincoln) County, North Carolina, on Nov 10, 1765, as speculative property. He never settled there, however. There were Propsts in that same Lincoln/Catawba County area, but not of this family line. Henry Propst was a physician there.
Most research records on Mathias are noted with his family name as Probst; however, his gravestone clearly says Brobst. I defer to his family and use Probst rather than Brobst.
Parents: Major Johann Michael PROBST and Anna Maria KERR.
Spouse: Anna Maria Magdalena "Polly" STAMBACH. Captain Mathias George PROBST and Anna Maria Magdalena "Polly" STAMBACH were married in 1763 in Stoney Run, Albany Twp., Berks Co., Pennsylvania. Jersusalem Union (Red) Church. Children were: Samuel BROBST.
Niklaus PROBST was born on 4 Nov 1554 in Siselen, Bern, Switzerland. He died after 1604. Niklaus had either eleven or twelve children. One of them, Rudolph, is not shown on one of the original birth records from the old church, but other genealogists have placed him in this family. His birth year fits nicely in a gap that otherwise looks larger than would be expected in the family sequence.
His family records come from the parish archives, per Dr. Robert Oehler, Kasernenstrasse 21D, Bern, Switzerland. Parents: Hans Michel PROBST.
Rudolph PROBST was born on 24 Sep 1595 in Siselen, Bern, Switzerland. He died in 1651/52 in Ettischweyl, Allgau, Bavaria, Germany. Rudolph's wife's name is unknown. They moved from Bern to Germany around 1625 to Ettischweyl im Allgau (Ettischen) where he was a "Gemeinsman" or citizen. His only son Bartholomew left there to move to Kandel.
There is a question as to whether Rudolph was actually a son of Niklaus and Margreth, and a grandson of Hans (1531). LuAnne Brobst Staheli shows that lineage. However, the baptismal records do not show him in that family. But, if Rudolph was baptized by a travelling minister, that minister might have recorded the baptism at the minister's home church, thereby leaving the Probst's home church record vacant in that regard. Ms. Carolyn Price has challenged this birth line quite strongly on that basis. The record obtained from the church in Germany bears her out -- the name "Rudolph" does not appear in the list of children. Bill Rutledge may have just assigned him in that position because it fit so well! He may also have been the son of Benedikt Probst (1551) who lived in Lutzenfluh, Bern, Switzerland; the father of that Benedikt was Benedikt (1529), Hans' brother! The records show that Rudolph would have fit just as nicely in that family as well. Which family? Don't know, but it seems quite likely that it was one or the other.
The parish records, per Dr. Robert Oehler, Kasernenstrasse 21D, Bern, state: "Rudolph resided in Bern, then in Ettischweyl, Wangen, Kandel, and Minfeld, Germany." But did he move to Kandel with Barthel, or did he stay in Ettischweyl? It appears more likely that he stayed and died in Ettischweyl.
However, another record states he was born in Ettischweyl! Dr. Werner Esser of Kandel, writing to Alice-Ann Askew in 1992, states "Rudolph Probst ws born about 1590 in Ettischeyl next to the city of Wangen. He bases that on the Lineage Succession List dated feb 29 1992 from Kandel. It may be that since he came from Ettischweyl it was assumed by the Kandel authorities that he was born there. It seems well documented, though, that Rudolph was born in Switzerland. Further, the record of the land sale by his son, Bartholomew, in 1652, clearly states that the family origin was in the region of Bern.
Only one son, Barthel, is known in Brobst genealogical circles. There may have been other children. Certainly, it would have been unusual in those days to have only one child in the family. Hackworth/Staheli believe he was the ninth child, but that documentation has not been verified. Kandel records show only one son, Barthel, but then Rudolph never lived in Kandel.
What was Rudolph's profession? If we knew, that might help with the question of how the Probsts came to be Lutheran. Swiss Protestants generally came from the cities, but the farmers were Catholic. Since Barthel was a potter, does that mean that his father was also a potter? If so, then Rudolph perhaps would have been a Lutheran city person. In fact, the records unearthed by Alice-Ann Askew indicated that Rudolph was a "Gemeinsmann" or citizen of Ettischweyl. That term was usually meant a city dweller, not a rural dweller. A lot of conjecture here.
His death date is not certain. Did he die before 1653, causing Barthel to move on? Or did Barthel leave him behind, and he died sometime after Barthel left for Kandel? Bartholomew sold some land (probably Rudolph's) in Ettensweiler in 1652, then moved to Kandel. That might be an indication that Rudolph died in 1652, Barthel sold the land, and then split. But the Kandel Lineage Succession List mentioned above implies that Rudolph may have lived in Kandel for some time, although his death is not recorded there.
On balance of the facts, I believe that Rudolph was born in 1595 in Siselen, Kanton Berne, Switzrland; married there, and moved to Ettischweyl im Allgau, where he died around 1651/2. Parents: Niklaus PROBST and Margreth.
Children were: Bartholomew "Barthel" PROBST.
