FREDERICK BINGAMAN was the son of John Jost Bingaman and his wife, Christina Ort. The parents came from Germany, arriving at Philadelphia, Pa., on the British ship "Edinborough" James Russell, master. John Jost took the oath of allegiance to the English government on September 30, 1754. The Bingemans (also spelled Bingaman) were of Palatine or Wurtemburg ancestry. John Jost Bingaman died in July 1755, just a few months after the birth of his son.

Frederick was born in Berks County, Pa., on January 15, 1755, and died in what is now Snyder County, Pa., on October 30, 1845. On April 6, 1779, he married Maria Christina Hufnagle, daughter of John Christian Hufnagle, and his wife, Maria Elizabeth, of Ruscomb Manor Township, Berks County, Pa. She was born on May 3, 1758, and died in what is now Adams Township, Snyder County, Pa., on April 12, 1818. Both are buried in the cemetery of St. Henry's church at Troxelville.

In the U.S. Census of 1790, Frederick was assessed in Ruscomb Manor Township of Berks County, and there were in the family one male over 16, and two males under 16, and two females under sixteen. The exact date of Frederick's coming to what is now Snyder County is unknown, but it was prior to 1800, probably in 1794 or 1795. Frederick was assessed in Ruscomb Manor Township in 1779, but owned no land at the time there. In 1781 he was taxed with 81 acres and personal property in that district.

Due to the fact that Frederick on one occasion refers in his writings to Maria Hufnagle as his "first wife" he was evidently twice married. There were twelve children in the Bingman (sic) family, six sons and six daughters, and it is supposed that all, or most of the twelve accompanied their parents when they came to what is now Snyder County.

Henry Bingaman (1794-1861) was a son of Frederick. Henry married Christina Moyer and they had at least ten children (names are found on page 243, vol. 1, Snyder County Annals). It is said that Henry served in the War of 1812.

Frederick served in the militia during the Revolution, and is said to have been in the battle at the Brandywine. The Rev. Dr. Ira W. Bingaman, President of Carthage College, Carthage Illinois, is a descendant of the subject of this sketch.

He is my grandfather (of many greats), and I maintain a proud membership in the Sons of the American Revolution on his behalf.
