GREIB (CRIPE) Family History, Part II

December 2012

Jacob GRIPE (II) (~1746-~1805)

11A. Jacob Gripe (II) was born about 1746 in Pennsylvania. He married Barbara Shideler in 1767 in Morrison's Cove, Bedford County, Pennsylvania, and had at least eight children:

11A1. Jacob Cripe (III) 4 May 1767 1 Nov 1865 (98)
11A2. Barbara Cripe (1772) --  -- 
11A3. Daniel Cripe (Sr.) 6 May 1772 10 Dec 1859 (87)
11A4. Elizabeth Cripe (1773) 1840 (67)
11A5. Samuel Cripe (1774) 1848 (74)
11A6. Hannah Cripe (1774) --  -- 
11A7. John Cripe (Sr.) (2 Jul) 1775 12 Jun 1856 (80)
11A8. Esther Cripe (1776) --  -- 

The Gripe family moved from Pennsylvania to Wolf Creek (Randolph Township), Montgomery County, Ohio, northwest of Dayton, in 1798.

Jacob Gripe reportedly died in 1805 or 1819 in Ohio, likely in Montgomery County.

In 1828, Jacob's four sons moved west into Indiana: Jacob and Daniel moved north to Elkhart Township in Elkhart County, where Daniel served as the first elder and minister of the German Baptist Brethren congregation at Elkhart and plowed the first furrow on the Elkhart Prairie; John moved into central Indiana near Wildcat Creek in Clinton County; and Samuel settled near Richmond, in Wayne County.

Johannes (John) GREIB, Sr. (~1746-1822)

11B. Johannes "John" Greib/Gripe, Sr., was reportedly born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, between 1746 and 1749. He married Elizabeth Rench about 1770 in Maryland, likely in Washington County, then the western portion of Frederick County. They had as many as nine children:

11B1. Joseph Cripe 20 Sep 1771 22 Aug 1822 (50)
11B2. Elizabeth Cripe 12 May 1773 12 Jun 1854 (81)
11B3. Susannah Cripe 1776 1859 (83)
11B4. John Cripe, Jr. (1779-1780) 1818 (39)
11B5. Catharine Cripe 1781 1858 (77)
11B6. Esther Cripe 30 Jan 1784 30 Mar 1872 (88)
11B7. Hannah Cripe (1786) 24 Mar 1868 (81)
11B8. Barbara Gripe 4 Jul 1788 4 Sep 1859 (71)
11B9. Jacob Cripe 8 Aug 1793 27 Oct 1875 (82)

The Greibs started their family in Frederick County (likely the western portion that later became Washington County), Maryland, and then moved north to Bedford County Pennsylvania, in the mid-1770s.

Frankstown Branch
The Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River flows from Claysburg, Greenfield Township, in modern-day Blair County, north through Freedom, Blair, and Frankstown Townships, and then cuts east into Morrison's Cove where it forms the boundary between Catharine and Woodbury Township. From there it exits Morrison's Cove and enters modern-day Huntingdon County where it crosses Porter Township and meets the Little Juniata River near Petersburg.

December 2011In the early 1780s they continued north into neighboring Huntingdon County and settled in Frankstown Township in the western third of the county that later became Blair County. There John purchased 300 acres from Thomas Weems and John Kerr for £405 on October 13, 1787. Weems and Kerr first acquired this tract by warrant in 1774. This land lie along the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River and adjoined lands of "Jacob Gripe" (his father or brother), Abraham Robinson and Captain Hennery.[Deed 1786]

February 2011

The Greibs moved to western Ohio and settled in Montgomery County by 1804 with most of his siblings.[Tax 1804] There they acquired land in Township 3, Range 5 East, Section 34 (Jefferson Township), Montgomery County, southwest of Dayton, before 1807. It consisted of a strip 19.97 chains (1,318') deep running the length of the north line of Section 34 (Farmersville & Carrollton Road) from Bear Creek and probably contained about 155 acres. John sold this property, apparently to Jacob and Barbara Miller, before 1807, who in turn sold it to Abraham Troxell in August 1807.[Deed 1807, Land 1807]

Johannes conveyed two lots in Township 4, Range 5 East (Madison Township) to his children in December 1813. One was an exchange with son John Jr., in which the senior took possession of the southwest quarter of Section 31, west of Drexel, from the junior and the junior took possession of the southwest quarter of Section 25 to the northeast of Drexel, about 5 miles apart. The second was the northwest 160-acre quarter of Section 26, north of Drexel, to his daughter and son-in-law, Hannah and David Shively, for "his natural love and affection for...his daughter and the sum of $5." This tract was noted bordering that of John Junior's to the south.[Deed 1813]

Johannes (John) Greib died on July 9, 1814, in Madison Township, Montgomery County, Ohio. He was in his late 60s.

Elizabeth (Rench) Greib reportedly died the following year in Madison Township, however, her signature was curiously absent in the December 1813 deed transactions, suggesting she may have died earlier. She was in her early 60s.

After theirs deaths, all of their surviving children (Cripe-Kuns/Shively/Ulrich/Ulrey) migrated northwest to the north-central Indiana counties of St. Joseph, Kosciusko, Miami, and Carroll in the 1830s.

Elizabeth (GREIB MARTIN) FETTERS (1748-<1792)

11C. Elizabeth Greib was born in 1748 in Pennsylvania. She married Johannes "John" Martin and are believed to have had at least one son:

11C1. Daniel Martin (Sr.) (1764-1767) 1824 -- 
11CX. Conrad Martin (1772) (Feb 1849) (77)
Tangled Records?

It is widely held that Elizabeth had a son Daniel and that Daniel married a Hannah Gripe/Cripe, who in turn is widely held as Elizabeth's youngest sister. Is it possible that Daniel married his own aunt?

I've also recently uncovered son Conrad, whom others hold as the son of John and Mary Ulery.

John is reported to have lost his first family in an Indian raid in Pennsylvania during the 1760s.[Martinsburg]December 2011

The Martins moved to western Pennsylvania by 1773 when John received a warrant for 212.5 acres in Morrison's Cove on March 15, 1773, for which a patent was granted on November 7, 1786. It bordered John Bromback (Brumbaugh) on the east, Daniel Hinley (Henley), on the west, Conrad Brombeck (Brumbaugh) on the north, and John Adams on the south. The tract, or at least a portion thereof, was later referred to as Martinsburg, which is now a borough in North Woodbury Township, Blair County. John later sold a 129.25-acre strip of the original 212.5-acre Martinsburg tract to Henry Engle on December 22, 1787, for £259.[Deed 1787]

"Woodberry" / Morrison's Cove
"Woodberry" Township, in 1788, likely comprised the central region of Morrison's Cove, which has since been divided into Woodbury, South Woodbury, and Bloomfield townships in Bedford County, and North Woodbury and Taylor townships in Blair County to the north.

August 2011John was taxed on 100 acres in Frankstown (possibly referring to part of the Martinsburg 212.5 acres), 10 of which were improved, one horse, and two cows by 1776. By 1779 he added a second 100 acres and another horse. He later totaled four horses and three cows by 1785.[Tax 1776-1785] This area appears to have later become part of "Woodberry" Township by 1788 when John paid taxes on 449 acres, 5 horses, and 6 cows.[Tax 1788]

August 2011In the middle of this, John and Conrad Brumbach (Brumbaugh) purchased 99.25 acres called "Spring Grove" in Morrison's Cove from Reuben Haines for £75 on September 7, 1785. The tract measured 255 perches (4,207.5 feet) along the east line and adjoined Andrew Levy to the west. The land had originally been patented to Samuel Wallis from Thomas and Richard Penn, sons of Pennsylvania founder William Penn (1644-1718).[Deed 1785] The two apparently greatly expanded the original 99.25 to 414.75 acres over the next six years, after which Conrad Brumbaugh sold his share of 262.25 acres to John. Pennsylvania Governor Thomas Mifflin confirmed their ownership with a patent on August 4, 1791, and a resurvey warrant by the name of "Union Green" was conducted. Then for £70, Brumbaugh sold his 262.25 acres of the property to John on December 12, 1791. On the same day they sold 113.25 acres to Henry Engle for £200 and 10 shillings. This lot bordered Daniel Henly to the north. The next was a 39.25-acre sublot of the same "Spring Grove" tract that they sold to Conrad's nephew John Bromboch (Brumbaugh) for £58, 17 shillings, and 6 pence.[Deed 1791]

August 2011John sold 70 acres and 4 perches from the combined "Martinsburg" and "Spring Grove" tracts to his son Conrad on December 22, 1795, for £25.[Deed 1795]

Johannes "John" Martin likely died in the 1790s in Pennsylvania.

After John's death, Elizabeth remarried to Michael Fetter[s] (Sr.) in Mercer County, in far western Pennsylvania.

Elizabeth (Greib Martin) Fetter[s] reportedly died in Pennsylvania before 1799 at around the age of 51.

Michael Fetter[s] (Sr.) died in 1828 in Mercer County at about the age of 76 years.

Susannah (GREIB) SHIVELY (1748-<1792)

11D. Susannah Greib was born around 1747 or 1748, likely in Pennsylvania. She married Christian Shively, Sr., and had as many as five children:

11D1. Jacob Shively (Sr.) (1767) Aug 1839 (72)
11D2. Christian Shively, Jr. 20 Apr 1770 30 Jun 1836 (66)
11D3. Daniel L. Shively 1773 1818 (45)
11D4. John Shively 25 May 1775 25 Mar 1848 (72)
11D5. Susannah Shively 1778 1848 (70)
11D6. David Shively 13 Apr 1786 13 Feb 1867 (80)
Shively (Schaublin)
Christian was the elder brother of Isaac Shively, sons of Ulrich Schaublin/Shively.

The Shively family may have started in Washington County (then part of Frederick County), Maryland, and by 1770 settled in Frankstown, Blair County (then part of Bedford County and later Huntingdon County), Pennsylvania.[Tax 1785]

February 2011

The Shively family moved to Montgomery County, Ohio, in the early 1800s, and settled in lands straddling Jefferson and Madison townships. (It hasn't yet been determined which of these may be Christian Senior's or Junior's.):

Son Daniel also acquired land grants in Township 4, Range 5 East, Section 27 (Madison Township), a little over a mile to the northeast.

Christian Shively, Sr., died in Montgomery County, Ohio, on February 3, 1814, at about the age of 70. He is buried at Turner Cemetery in Madison Township, Montgomery County.

Susannah (Greib) Shively died in 1818, presumably in Montgomery County, Ohio. She is also buried at Turner Cemetery She was about 71 years old.

Daniel CRIPE (Sr.) (1752-1823)

11E. Daniel Cripe, Sr., was born on April 15, 1752, in Pennsylvania. He married Barbara Lovina/Louisa Replogle in 1775, reportedly in Morrison's Cove near the Bedford and Blair (then Huntingdon) County line. They had seven children, all likely born in Frankstown Township, Blair (Huntingdon) County:

11E1. Catherine Cripe 6 Mar 1776 6 Sep 1850 (74)
11E2. Barbara Cripe (1780) --  -- 
11E3. Jacob Greib (1782) 1847 (65)
11E4. Daniel Cripe (Jr.) 12 Jul 1785 22 May 1865 (79)
11E5. John Cripe (Sr.) 5 Aug 1789 25 Feb 1847 (57)
11E6. Esther Cripe (1790) (1855) (65)
11E7. Rhinehart Cripe 18 Jul 1791 30 Oct 1871 (80)

August 2011 Barbara's father, Rinehart (or Reinhard) Replogle lived in Frankstown Township by 1776. This area may have been part of of Woodbury Township to the south of Frankstown, as in 1779 it was recorded in Colerain Township, Bedford County, which likely extended north to include Woodbury Township.[Tax 1776-1875]

The Cripe family migrated west to Ohio in the early 1800s and settled, along with most of his siblings, in Montgomery County, northwest of Dayton, by 1804.[Tax 1804]

January 2011

Daniel received a land grant in 1806 for property in Township 3, Range 5 East, Section 17, which lies along Bear Creek in Jefferson Township, Montgomery County. The following year Daniel and and "Louisa" sold it to Joseph Cripe (nephew?) and Nicholas Myers. To Joseph they sold 148.14 acres in the northwest fifth of the section north of Bear Creek for $444, and to Myers they sold 395.5 acres, the southern half south of Bear Creek, for $3,000.[Land 1807-1815]

Daniel and Louisa acquired at least seven 160-acre quarter section tracts running generally north to south down Wolf Creek at Brookville, Clay Township, and adjacent Perry Township, Montgomery County, Ohio. Daniel received two of the patents from the United States government on October 8, 1814, one for the southwest quarter of Township 6, Range 4 East, Section 34, at Brookville; and one for the northeast quarter of Township 5, Range 4 East, Section 3, adjoining Section 34, but lying in Perry Township to the south of present-day Westbrook Road. Daniel and "Louis" turned around the following year and sold lots in Sections 27 and 34 and Section 3 to their children for $50 each, as follows, from north to south:[Deed 1814,1815]

Barbara Louisa (Replogle) Cripe reportedly died between 1804 and 1807 in Montgomery County, however "Louis" was a signatore on each of the deed transactions on April 11, 1815. This suggests that either Barbara lived at least until 1815 or that Barbara and Louisa are two different wives.

Daniel Cripe (Sr.) died on October 23, 1823, in Montgomery County at the age of 71. He is buried at Landis Cemetery, south of Brookville, in Perry Township, Montgomery County, along with his son-in-law Joseph Mikesell and infant grandson John Mikesell.[Grave]

Samuel GREIB, Sr. (1755-1845)

11F. Samuel Greib, Sr., was born in Pennsylvania in 1755. He married Catherine Nesbitt on November 22, 1782, in Washington County, Maryland. They had at least six children:

11F1. Nathaniel Cripe (1783) (<1800) (<17)
11F2. John Cripe (Sr.) (1785) Feb 1863 (78)
11F3. Samuel Cripe, Jr. 17 Aug 1787 1840 (52)
11F4. Jacob Cripe (Sr.) 20 Aug 1788 20 Mar 1852 (63)
11F5. Daniel Cripe (1790-1793) 10 May 1848 (58)
11F6. Elizabeth Cripe (1798) (1828) (30)
February 2011

The Greib family started in Washington County, Maryland, and by the early 1780s moved north to Frankstown Township in Blair County (then in Bedford County and later Huntingdon County), Pennsylvania. They acquired 100 acres in Frankstown Township by 1785.[Tax 1785]

The Greibs migrated west to Montgomery County, Ohio, by 1804.[Tax 1804] Samuel purchased a federal land patent, as an assignee of David Kummel, for the east half of Township 5, Range 4 East (Perry Township), Section 24, north of New Lebanon, on February 20, 1812. The following year Samuel and Catharine sold 158.96 acres in the southeast quarter of the section to their son, Samuel, Jr., for a nominal sum of $100.[Deed 1812-1813]

The Greibs eventually continued west to Ross Township, Clinton County, Indiana, around 1830.

Samuel and Catherine (Nesbitt) Greib both reportedly died in 1845 in Ross Township and are buried at Mussleman Cemetery in Jackson Township, Carroll County, Indiana, about 20 miles to the northeast of Ross Township. He was 90 years old, she was 79.

Mary (GREIB) WISE (~1756-1786)

11G. Mary Greib was born about 1756, probably in Pennsylvania. She married John Wise (Sr.) and had as many as five children, probably born in Frankstown Township, Huntingdon County (modern-day Blair County), Pennsylvania. Mary died young and John went on to remarry and have at least two more sons and a daughter:

11G1. John Wise (Jr.) 13 Aug 1776 (1843-1844) (66)
11G2. Jacob Wise (1779-1784) 1845 (66)
11G3. Daniel Wise (1782) Feb 1867 (84)
11G4. Samuel Wise (1783) 27 Jan 1841 (57)
11G5. Susanna Wise 28 Mar 1785 28 Dec 1873 (88)

--  Michael Wise 1800 --  -- 
--  Solomon Wise 1803 --  -- 
--  Margaret Wise (1808) --  -- 

Mary (Greib) Wise died about 1786 in Huntingdon (Blair) County, about a year after giving birth to her daughter. She was only about 30 years old.

John remarred to a woman name Frances ("Franey") by 1800 and had at least two more sons and a daughter.

The elder Wise children began moving west to Ohio by 1820 and some later continued on to Indiana.

John Wise (Sr.) died in 1821 in Huntingdon (Blair) County, Pennsylvania. He was about the age of 67.

Franey remained in Blair County where she was enumerated with son-in-law and daughter, David and Margaret (Wise) Koon, and family in Allegheny Township, we st of Hollidaysburg.[Cen 1850]

Frances Wise died at the Koon home in Allegheny Township on March 16, 1852. She was 87 years old.

Esther (GREIB) WAGGONER (1762-1834)

11H. Esther Greib was born in Pennsylvania about 1762. She married Johannes "John" Waggoner (Sr.) about 1787, likely in Frankstown Township, Blair County (then in Huntingdon County), Pennsylvania. They eight children:

11H1. John Waggoner (Jr.) 30 Nov 1788 4 Feb 1848 (59)
11H2. David Waggoner Dec 1789 11 Dec 1845 (56)

11H8. Samuel Waggoner (1807-1808) (1869) (62)
Waggoner
It has yet to be determined if Esther's maternal grandmother, Elizabeth (Waggoner) Ulrich, was related to Johannes. Johannes reportedly traces back to the Rheinland-Pfalz region of Germany.

The first seven Waggoner children were all likely born in Frankstown. The family moved to Montgomery County, Ohio, by 1804[Tax 1804] and probably settled in German Township.

February 2011

Johannes and Daniel Bowser, Sr., (Johannes' elder sister Anna's husband) purchased land from the United States federal government on March 6, 1806, in Township 3, Range 5 East (Jefferson Township), in Section 26 and fractional Section 25, which lie east of present-day Soldiers Home-Miamisburg Road and run to the Great Miami River between Hemple Road to the north and Farmersville-Carrollton Road to the south. They sold 400 acres in Section 26 (bounded on the east by Infirmary Road) on March 18, 1809, to Daniel's sons (Johannes' nephews) as follows.[Deed 1809, Land 1809]

Johannes and Esther sold 6 acres along the west bank of Twin Creek in Township 3, Range 4 East, Section 14 (German Township), west of Germantown, to Abraham Fye in 1808. This strip appears to correlate that running along present-day Creek Road, north from West Market Street (Route 725).[Deed 1808, Land 1808]

Johannes and Esther sold two adjoining tracts of a total of 273.5 acres in Township 3, Range 5 East (Jefferson Township) to Robert and Sarah Delap for $2,188 on June 3, 1812: 129.7 acres in the east of Section 26 and an adjoining 143.8 acres in the west of Fractional Section 25. These tracts lie to the east of present-day Infirmary Road and those sold to the Bowsers and Moyers above. The Delaps secured this purchase by mortgaging the tracts back to the Waggoners and agreeing to pay them two annual installments of $300 due in 1812 and 1813, and the balance of $1,588 due on or before August 1, 1815. The Delaps apparently became in danger of defaulting on the mortgage and on January 1, 1814, entered into another agreement with the Waggoners to convey the whole of that property back to the Waggoners in return for $100, cancelling the mortgage, and releasing the Delaps from their outstanding debt.[Deed 1812,1814A]

The following August, Johannes and Esther carried out a similar sale of the 273.5 acres in Sections 25 and 26 to John Stump (Johannes Stumb) for $3,080 with a balance of $1,708.50 mortgaged for two payments of $854.25 payable by June 1815 and 1816.[Deed 1814B]

Johannes and his brother Philip divided their shared property in Township 4, Range 5 East (Madison Township), Section 36, with a pair of quit claim deeds in December 1814.

Catherine (GREIB) WOLF (~1759-)

11I. Catherine Greib was reportedly born in either 1759 or 1764, likely in Pennsylvania. She married Leonard Wolf (Sr.) in 1780 in Huntingdon County, likely Frankstown Township in present-day Blair County, Pennsylvania. They had five children:

11I1. Susannah Wolf (1781-1782) 13 Sep 1845 (64)
11I2. Ester Wolf (1785) 1822 (37)
11I3. Elizabeth Wolf (1786) 13 Feb 1839 (53)
11I4. Leonard Wolf (Jr.) 14 Sep 1794 30 Aug 1853 (58)
11I5. Jacob Wolf 1799 (1849-1851) (51)

Leonard acquired 100 acres, two horses, and two cows in Frankstown Township by 1785.[Tax 1785]

Catherine (Greib) Wolf is believed to have died in Pennsylvania, prior to the family's westward migration into Ohio. As such she would have been in her early 40s.

The Wolf family moved from Pennsylvania to western Ohio, near Dayton in Montgomery County, in the early 1800s.

Hannah (GREIB) MARTIN (~1767-1827)

11J. Hannah Greib was born about 1767, likely in Frankstown Township, Blair County (then in Huntingdon County), Pennysylvania. She married Daniel Martin (Sr.), who may have been Hannah's nephew, the son of her eldest sister. They had as many as seven children:

11J1. David Martin (1787) 1831 (44)
11J2. Elizabeth Martin (1789) --  -- 
11J3. Susan Martin (1792) --  -- 
11J4. Mary Martin 3 Sep 1798 --  -- 
11J5. Hannah Martin (1799) --  -- 
11J6. Daniel Martin (Jr.) (1801) 1843 (42)
11J7. Catharine Martin (1804) --  -- 
February 2011

The Martin family is believed to have started in Huntingdon County[Cen 1790] (likely Frankstown Township, now in Blair County). They later reportedly lived in Saltlick Township, Fayette County, in southwest Pennsylvania, at the time that daughter Mary was born.

The family moved west to Ohio, perhaps in 1809, when Daniel purchased from the United States government the northeast quarter of Township 4, Range 5 East, Section 5 (Madison Township), Montgomery County, midway between Clayton and Trotwood along the North Branch Wolf Creek. Daniel was still noted as a resident of Pennsylvania at the time the deed was issued.[Deed 1809] Hannah's niece Elizabeth (Cripe) Kuns lived about a mile and half to the southeast.

Daniel Martin died in 1824 in Montgomery County. He was in his late 50s or early 60s.

Hannah (Greib) Martin died three years later in Montgomery County in 1827. She was about 60 years old.
