RE: Holsapple, Jacob d 1816 Wash Co IN
Yes, please send me what you have. I am a descendent of Barbara Holsapple, the daughter of Johan Jacob Holsapple. There were other Holsapples in the area that were not related to Johan Jacob and it causes confusion when researching. Finding solid documentation that connects children to parents is always good. my email is Thanks!

RE: Holsapple, Jacob d 1816 Wash Co IN
Hello Cindy, Some of my information has been provided by cousins (i.e. Yoder family). However, I have a transcript of his will which roughly establishes death and location:
Washington County, Indiana Will 1816
(unrecorded copy, original in vault of Clerk's office)

Jacob Holsapple of Washington County,Indiana
Wife: Catherine (Van Meter), children to receive 5 shillings of my Estate, George, Christian, Barbara, Maria Jackson, Elizabeth Smith, Margarate Morgan, Catherine Gabbart, Julianna Smith, and my last three children, Jacob, William and Peter. The children to receive equal distribution of balance of my estate after the decease of my beloved wife.

Executors: wife, Catherine & George Holsapple.
his his
Witnesses: William X Williams, James P.Williams, James X Spencer
mark mark
29 January 1816

And the Hessian information comes from this site:

I have 1790 and 1810 census data on Jacob.

I am still searching for records that will support what our cousins have recorded in their letters and such. I want to get a hold of the Pioneer Pickings #90 Salem Democrat dated 28 Feb 1877 to see what sort of recollections are recorded there. When I find new, solid information, I plan to modify his FindAGrave entry. I hope this helps.

I looks like you have them listed in the wrong cemetery go to #100804232 and #100804195. Someone has made listings for them after your listings so maybe they will transfer them to you since you created the memorials first but were in the wrong place.

RE: Charles Leonard Holsapple
Well, Charles Leonard Holsapple is a common ancestor, albeit a bit removed from me. As I mentioned, he is the husband of 1st cousin 1x removed of wife of 2nd great grand uncle. I have to go through Asa Wright, Phebe Martin, John E. Martin to get to Merrit Martin, the husband of Julia Ann Standish, my 3rd great grand aunt!!

But I am happy to say, "Hello" and share any information.

My father, Dr. S. Miles Standish, was born in Campbellsburg and lived in Livonia and Salem. Four other generations of Standishes were in Washington Co., IN., though the Holsapples got there a few years earlier.

I am a big fan of Find A Grave and try to contribute to it when possible.

Best to you, Linda Standish

Martin Bottorff 1773's parents, family
Martin Bottorff born 1773 is the son of Martin Bottorff born Aug 30 1748 Pa-died after Aug 9, 1794 in Jefferson County, KY and his wife Maria Barbara Hautz born abt 1748 Pa-(This is the information they have in the DAR about Martin 1773's parents) Also in it shows Martin Bottorff born 1748 took the Oath of Fidelity and Support in 1778 in MARYLAND. That is called Patriotic Service and is why he is in the DAR. Their source is "DAR Unpublished Revolutionary Records of Maryland, GRC 1939, S-1, Volume 61, Page 44".
There are approved applications for descendants of Martin Bottorff 1748's son Jacob who married Rhoda Allen and Martin Bottorff 1748's son George that married Nancy Phillip
Martin Bottorff 1773's father Martin 1748 is the son of John Adam Batdorf (born 1723? died 1758) and Anna Maria Zeller. Martin 1748 was 10 yrs old when his father died. John Adam Batdorf is buried in Christ Lutheran Cemetery in Stouchberg, Berks County, Pa, and so is his father Johannes Martin Batdorf born 1698.
Martin Bottorff 1773 's mother, Maria Barbara Hautz, is the daughter of Philip Lorentz Hautz born 1713 Germany and Eva Walborn born 1720 in Schoharie NY. Eva Walborn born 1720 is the daughter of Christian Wilhelm Walborn born 1692 and Catherine Elizabeth Batdorf born 1697.Both the Walborn and Batdorf family came over on the ships that started out in London England and arrived in New York in 1710.
Catherine Elizabeth Batdorf 1697 and her brother Martin Batdorf born 1698 were the only 2 surviving children out of 5 children that survived the journey on the ships that came to America. Their mother Anna Catherine also survived. Their father Johann Jacob Peter Batdorf died in 1709 in London England before the ships arrived. (I am from Martin 1698's sister Catherine Elizabeth Batdorf line who married Christian Wilhelm Walborn, from their daughter Eva Walborn who married Philip Lorentz Hautz, so i am doing research on Batdorf, Walborn and Hautz)
I have been trying to get in touch with the person who has the Martin Bottorff 1773 findagrave to connect Martin 1773 to his wife Elizabeth Coons. I see his last messages were to you in 2009. Is he still on findagrave?
Do you have any information on the names of the children of Martin Bottorff 1773 Pa and Elizabeth Coons born 1772 Maryland? Does anyone know where Martin 1748 and his wife Maria Barbara Hautz born 1748 are buried in KY?
Martin Bottorff and Elizabeth Coons married on June 8, 1795 in Jefferson County KY.

William Rummage

In taking a close look at the picture of this stone it appears the middle initial is a J instead of a T. I am researching my Rummage line and came across this memorial. I am looking for a William M. Rummage also born in 1855 in Trezevant, TN.
