From the History of Nortumberland Co, Pa
The Bingaman family now numerous throughout
Northumberland county descended from one John Bingaman, one of the "Hessian" soldiers (many of them came from Hessen Cassel, Germany) sent to this country in the pay of the British during the Revolutionary war, and one of those captured on Christmas night 1776, by Washington at
Trenton. Many of those taken prisoner were held at Penn Common, Reading, Berks Co., Pa., until the close of the war, and John Bingaman was one of those who refused to leave this country, of which he became a loyal citizen. About 1790 he came to Northumberland county, where his first location was in the vicinity of Mahantango, in Lower Mahanoy township, about where Levi Kauffman now lives. There he conducted a hotel on the banks of the Susquehanna river, and according to family tradition the Indians used to visit him and drink his applejack. He afterward settled
farther north in the township, on a large tract which is now the farm of Edwin Badman, and there he erected buildings and continued to make his home for many years. Some years before his death he retired and went to
live with one of his sons, at whose home he died about 1843. He is buried at the western end of the old graveyard of Zion's (Stone Valley) Church. As tradition has it that he was in his twenty-second year when he came to this country, in 1776, having been born in 1754, he was
evidently about ninety at the time of his demise. He was a tall, robust man, of strong character and convictions, and lived a peaceful, industrious and useful life. His many descendants in Northumberland county have been numbered among the thrifty and successful farmers and
business men of their respective communities.
