From Family Records:
John & Abigail (Apalonia) Mason were from Germany Twp., Fayette Co Pa., where they settled sometime between 1774-1778. John had built a fort on his land there, later known as Fort Mason. Masontown, formerly Germantown, was laid out by John Mason and on 29 May 1778, he & his wife conveyed it by deed to the inhabitants. In 1801, John and Apalonia deeded to the citizens of Masontown, a house and lot for school purposes. Soon after this, John and his wife moved to Columbiana Co. Ohio.
Abigail Mason was the d/o John Nicholas Baker (Becker) and his second wife Marie ___Bayer. (Genealogy of the Baker Family, by Robert Helsley Baker Strasburg, Va 1954) She is mentioned in her father's will in Frederick Co, Va proved 2 March 1763. The service of John Mason (Johannes Maurer) during the Revolution was verified by the NSDAR in Oct 1981.
Peter Rich (b 1776) was the s/o Jacob Rich, Sr., of German Twp Fayette Co Pa. and he is mentioned in Jacob Rich, by Golda V Peckham Suttie, 1979 in the DAR Library. Peter's marriage is mentioned but not his children. Children of Peter and Elizabeth (Mason) Rich - perhaps incomplete:
Note from poster- Information on the children of Peter and Elizabeth Mason Rich have been omitted but can be found within postings to this cemetery. This work was posted in 1979, and added to the Cemetery index book for Columbiana County about this same time. Information on this family has most likely been updated and researched further over the years.
