Focusing primarily on descendants of Peter Brubacher who settled land around Mastersonville, PA. |
The fourth born son of Hans Brubacher (A-1), Peter, was born only six years after his father migrated from Ibersheim, Germany. Peter apparently moved from the family homestead in Hempfield Township, Lancaster County to the 455 acres owned by his father in Rapho Township around 1760. On 8 Dec 1766 the Hans Brubacher patent of 455 Acres was transferred to sons Peter and Joseph (upon settlement of their father's estate). Joseph sold his share to Peter late in 1760 and moved to the frontier of Halifax, Dauphin, PA.
Peter built a grist mill and saw mill in the lowest reach of Brubaker Run and gradually began transfering the property among his six sons. At his death in 1811 it appears that the bulk of the 455 ac had been divided among his descendants.
Much of the genealogy of Peter's family was preserved due to the significant work of Henry Strickler Brubaker (a descendant of Hans Jacob Brubaker - B-1) who married Peter's g.granddaughter. His 1912 book, The Brubaker Genealogy is available online.

Margie's brother was Rev Arthur Heistand Brubaker, his marriage license has John O. Brubaker as his father. (Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Court Records-Marriages-Vol. D-6, License No. 14678)
It was my pleasure. If you need anything else in this area, let me know.

|William R. Long||Request for photo|
Hi Mr. Brubaker,
I was delighted to see you entered a photo for David K. Breneman Find A Grave #53502400.
I am related to Joseph B. Breneman Find A Grave #32320270 who also from Lancaster, Pa. and died in McPherson, Ks.
Would you happened to have a photo for Joseph Breneman? He is my 2nd gg grandfather.
Its great when other researchers download family photos and I didn't know there were any.
|Caron Luddy||RE: Thanks for the photo!|
You're quite welcome. I also saw and photographed a grave for Louise Brubaker 1869-2958, since they had the same last name. If this is someone you're looking for please let me know.
|Dori & Ed Chrisp||RE: Tabor Cemetery|
I have already sent Find A Grave an e-mail that this cemetery was a dulication. This was back in May, but they don't seem to care. Problem is the Tabor Cemetery is located on the border between Fremont County and Mills County, Iowa. The cemetery is in the Fremont County Cemetery Book though. Thank you.
I believe the headstone is correct. Jonas was married two times. To Olive then to Frankie. One of the children he had with Olive was named Francis and I believe the newspaper wrote Frankie, instead of Francis. The name Francis is often known as Frank or Frankie. As Francis Sinatra was known as Frank Sinatra.
