REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERAN
Andrew Creveling, the fourth child of Johannes and Eva Loecher Creveling, Sr., was born in or near Maxsain, Germany on February 28, 1743. He died in Columbia County, PA on February 18, 1814. He migrated with his family from Germany to America as an infant. Andrew married Margaret Patrick (b.Feb. 17, 1745 in New Jersey-d.1797 in Columbia County, PA) in Hunterdon County, NJ on June 17, 1771. Rev. McHannah officiated the ceremony. The Andrew Creveling family settled in Jugtown (West Portal, NJ) in 1755. He joined the Continental Army as a private, shortly after the outbreak of the Revolutionary War from Hunterdon County, NJ. He served until the end of the war. He fought at the Battle of Monmouth. His son Samuel was born on the day of the battle on June 28, 1778. When General Washington was informed of this, he personally signed a furlough so Andrew could return home to visit his family and meet his newborn son. He was given a land grant in PA for services rendered to the Continental Army. He moved to and settled in Columbia County on that land. He was a member of the Briar Creek Presbyterian Association and was a founding member of the Hidlay Presbyterian Church. The land for the church (1 acre) was conveyed from Henry Hidlay on August 19, 1796 to Andrew Creveling, George Espy and Conrad Adams. The construction of the first church was accomplished shortly thereafter. He is buried in the Hidlay Cemetery along with many of the original church members. He was listed as a pew holder on August 16. 1807. Andrew Creveling was a farmer and owned a fishery. He drew up a will in 1813.
