ULRICH (ULERY/ULREY) Family History

April 2012

Daniel ULRICH (Sr.) (~1735-~1792)

121A. Daniel Ulrich (Sr.) was born about 1735 in Pennsylvania or Maryland. He married Christina Holdenger (or Holsinger) and had as many as eight children, five of whom so far are recovered:

121A1. Susannah Ulrich (1755) 1801 (46)
121A2. Christina Ulrich 8 Apr 1756 30 Sep 1823 (67)
121A3. Daniel Ulrich (Jr.) (1756) Mar 1813 (56)
121A4. John Ulrich (Sr.)Blue Star 14 Oct 1764 23 Aug 1838 (74)
121A5. Mary Ulrich (1765-1769) (>1813) (>48)
Daniel Confusion
Two Daniels, this one born about 1735, and another Daniel (123), born about 1720, are both held to have married a Christina. Is there one Daniel or two? If one, was he Stephen Ulrich's3 son or brother?

Peters Township

The Ulrich family traces back to Peters Township, then in Cumberland County and now in Franklin County, and as early as the 1750s with various reports of their children there. Daniel drew up his will there in 1781.

"Woodberry" Township/Morrison's Cove

"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.

January 2012As the American Revolutionary War began to come to a close, fighting shifted south to Virginia, and resistance by Native Americans subsided, more settlers began moving from the Cumberland Valley west into the Allegany Mountains. There Daniel acquired a mill seat tract of land at Roaring Spring, in the west-central portion of Morrison's Cove, on March 16, 1780.[Liebegott] Now in modern-day Taylor Township, Blair County, Pennsylvania, this area was included in Frankstown Township, Bedford County, through 1785 and then became part of "Woodberry" Township by 1788. Daniel paid taxes on 400 acres there in 1782. In 1788 he (or perhaps his son, Daniel (Jr.)) paid taxes on 75 acres with two horses and two cows.[Tax 1782-1788]

December 2011Daniel purchased an irregularly shapped 309-acre strip of land from Reuben Haines called "Hopkin's Traverse" for £100 on October 19, 1792. This tract lie in Woodberry Township, Morrison's Cove, on a branch that led into Frankstown Creek (perhaps Plum Creek in modern-day Roaring Spring township, Blair County) and adjoined another tract of his to the southwest, Paul Rhoads to the west, Jacob Brumbaugh to the northeast, by Conrad Brumbaugh to the east, and Andrew Levy to the south. The tract was originally patented by surveyor Samuel Wallis (1736-1798) in 1770 and then sold to Haines in 1771.[Deed 1792]

Daniel Ulrich died about 1792, probably in his mid-50s.

Daniel Ulrich Estate

January 2012Daniel's will was reportedly dated January 2, 1781, in Peters Township, Cumberland County (later in Franklin County), Pennsylvania. Witnesses were Conrad Brumbaugh (son John's future father-in-law), Hans Ulrich (son or uncle?), and "Johannes Dieter" (son-in-law), all of Peters Township; and Johannes Martin (cousin's husband) of Washington County, Maryland. The will, probated in 1792, named eight children and lands in Morrison's Cove. John Martin and eldest son, Daniel (Jr.), executed the will. Bedford County Deed Books record the following:

January 2012John & Susannah (Ulrich) Deeter: In accordance with Daniel's last will and testament, a tract of 80-acres was designated for "John Teeter," but John died in 1790 so in executing the will, Daniel (Jr.) conveyed the tract to John's estate and his executors, Abraham Teeter and "John Olery" (Daniel's brother), on December 31, 1795. This quadrilateral tract adjoined property of Christopher Marckle (Markley) (brother-in-law) to the west, Henry Rudesell to the north, John Flickenstaf and John Brumbaugh (brother-in-law) to the east, and John Brumbaugh and Daniel's own tract to the south.[Deed 1795]

January 2012Christopher & Christina (Ulrich) Markley: John Martin and "Daniel Olery" (Jr.), as executors of Daniel's estate, granted three tracts totalling 253.5 acres in Woodberry Township to Christopher Markle on December 31, 1795. These adjoined Henry Rudesell to the north, Abraham Teeter to the northeast, "Daniel Olery" (Jr.) to the southeast, and Martin Houser to the west.[Deed 1795]

January 2012Daniel & Susannah (Miller) Ulrich (Jr.): Two adjoining tracts in Woodberry Township, dubbed "Reliance" and "Greenfield," and totaling 181 acres and 2 perches, were conveyed in a trust to John Martin, as an executor of Daniel's estate, and patented in April 1794. Martin in turn conveyed them to Daniel's son, Daniel (Jr.) on December 31, 1795. These tracts adjoined Martin Houser and Christopher Marckles (Markley) (son-in-law) to the northwest, and Abraham Teeter and John Olery (Ulery) (son) to the southeast.[Deed 1795]

Daniel (Jr.) sold another tract from his father's estate (said to be one of four divisions of "Greenfield" 418 acres and 19 perches), on which Daniel resided and contained 251.75 acres, to Frederick Hartle on April 16, 1796, for £1,400. This tract adjoined Martin Houser to the west, Christopher Markles (Markley) (brother-in-law) to the northwest, John Flickenstaf to the northeast, and Abraham Teeter and "John Olery" (Ulery) (brother) to the southeast.[Deed 1796]

January 2012John & Mary (Ulrich) Brumbaugh: 120.75 acres from two tracts, "Hopkin's Traverse" and "Greenfield," were conveyed in trust from Daniel's estate to his son Daniel (Jr.) on October 19, 1792, who in turn conveyed it to his brother-in-law, John Brumbaugh, on December 31, 1795. The tract adjoined land of Abraham Teeter and brother "John Olery" to the west, and John Flickenstaf to the northwest.[Deed 1795-1796]

John & Christina (Brumbaugh) Ulrich: Son John inherited Daniel's mill seat tract at Roaring Spring.[Liebegott]

Ulrich-Greib/Cripe Connections
Sons Samuel and Isaac married sisters Esther and Barbara Cripe, who were their second cousins going back to siblings Stephen Ulrich (II)2 and Elizabeth (Ulrich) Greib.
February 2011

The Ulrichs settled in "Woodberry" Township, Morrison's Cove, along with most of David's siblings. There they owned 150 acres, three horses, and three cows, plus rented another 148 acres by 1788.[Tax 1788]

Later the Ulrichs resettled southwest of Dayton in Jefferson Township, Montgomery County, in the early 1800s.

David received a land patent from the United States government on January 7, 1808, for property in Township 4, Range 5 East, Section 34, near the town of Drexel in Madison Township, to the north of Jefferson Township. On December 23, 1812, David and Barbara sold that property to sons Samuel, John, and Isaac, and again on May 11, 1814, to daughter Susannah Shively, as follows:[Deed 1812, 1814]

In 1814 they again conveyed land in Section 34 to daughter Susannah Shively.[Land 1814]

Barbara Ulrich died about 1817 in Montgomery County. She was about 68 years old.

David Ulrich died in Montgomery County in 1823. He was about 77 years old.

Stephen ULRICH (III) (1750-1836)

121C. Stephen Ulrich (III) was born on April 25, 1750, in modern-day Adams County (then part of York County), Pennsylvania. He married Susannah Rench in modern-day Washington County, Maryland. They had as many as nine children:

121C1. John Ulrich/Ulery (1766) Apr 1824 (57)
121C2. Jacob Ulrey (22 Dec) 1768 6 Sep 1838 (69)

121C8. Mary Ulrich 21 Jun 1786 --  -- 
121C9. Samuel Ullery Feb 1794 Jan 1865 (70)

The Ulrich family probably migrated into the Appalachian Mountains of south-central Pennsylvania during the early 1770s. Stephen and most of his siblings settled in "Woodberry" Township, Morrison's Cove, where Stephen owned 50 acres, four horses, and four cows, plus rented another 148 acres by 1788. The future father-in-law of daughters Susannah and Mary, John "Metsgar" (Metzger), also lived nearby.[Tax 1788]

Sons John and Stephen (IV) settled in West Bethlehem Township, Washington County, in southwestern Pennsylvania, in the late 1780s.

Stephen and many of the children continued west to southwestern Ohio where sons Jacob and Daniel settled in Clermont and Warren counties. Son Jacob is renowned for migrating down the Ohio River to Louisville, Kentucky, in 1794, and then crossing the Ohio River to establish the second settlement in modern-day Monroe Township, Clermont County, at Ulrey's Run in March 1798.

Stephen and Susanna eventually settled in Montgomery County.

Susannah (Rench) Ulrich died in 1815, likely in Montgomery County. She was in her late 50s.

Stephen Ulrich (III) died on October 25, 1835, in Montgomery County. He was 85 years old.

Christina (ULRICH) STUTZMAN (1752/1753-1810)

August 2011 121D. Christina Ulrich was born in 1752 or 1753, in modern-day Adams County (then part of York County), Pennyslvania. She married Jacob Stutzman/Stutsman (IV) and may have had as many as six children:

121D1. David Stutzman (1764-1768) 3 Jul 1852 (86)
121D2. Jacob Stutzman (V) 1770 (1795) (25)

121D6. Samuel Stutzman (1787) 31 Mar 1861 (74)
Stutzman Family
Jacob Stutzman (IV) is believed to be the son of Hans Jacob Stutzman (III), and his alliance with the Miller family.
April 2012

Jacob purchased land in Bedford County, Pennsylvania, as early as March 2, 1775. He bought a tract of 100 acres and 114 perches called "Long Bottom" from Stofel and Catharine Reeber/Reever, original owners who had acquired it in 1771. Jacob and Stofel were both identified as being from Frederick County, Maryland, at the time. The tract was a strip about 60 perches (990') wide that ran northwest down the course of the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River on the northeast, and along a stony, barren ridge to the southwest. The Raystown Branch runs east across the townships of Juniata, Mann's Choice, Schellsburg, Bedford, Snake Springs, and West Providence, at which point it turns northeast through Hopewell, Liberty, crosses into Huntingdon County and through the townships of Hopewell, Lincoln, Penn, and Juniata, where it joins the main Juniata River. This northeast run flows to the east of Morrison's Cove.

The Stutzmans eventually settled in "Woodberry" Township, Morrison's Cove, along with most of Christina's siblings. There they owned 50 acres, three horses, and four cows, plus rented another 148 acres by 1788.[Tax 1788]

September 2011

Jacob acquired land in Bedford County from Benjamin Rittenhouse in 1796.[Deed 1796]

The Stutzmans eventually made their way west to Trotwood, Montgomery County, Ohio, northwest of Dayton.

Christina (Ulrich) Stutzman died in 1810 in Montgomery County. She was in her late 50s.

Jacob sold land in Township 4 North, Range 5 East, Section 15, in Madison Township, Montgomery County, to John Mikesell in 1814.[Land 1814] This land lie about two miles north of that owned by Christina's brother, David Ulrich.

Jacob Stutzman died in 1816 or 1818 in Montgomery. He was around 70 years old.

Samuel ULERY (1754-1822)

121E. Samuel Ulery was born in 1754 in either Pennsylvania or Maryland. He married Mary Elizabeth Brumbaugh in 1780. They resettled in Woodbury Township (now New Enterprise), Bedford County, Pennsylvania, soon after 1780, coming with John Brumbaugh, his brother-in-law. Samuel was apparently the first minister of the German Baptist Brethren Church in Woodbury Township and probably the first in that county. For many years he was a noted speaker and the Elder in charge of the Woodbury Church.

Most of Samuel's siblings resided in Woodbury Township as well.[Cen 1790]

Samuel Ulery died at New Enterprise in 1822, at about the age of 68. He is buried in New Enterprise Cemetery.

Mary Elizabeth (Brumbaugh) Ulery died 27 years later in New Enterprise in 1849, at about the age of 82. She is also buried in New Enterprise Cemetery.

Lydia (ULRICH) LEAR (~1756-~1819)

121F. Lydia Ulrich was born about 1756 in Maryland, likely in modern-day Washington County (then part of Frederick County). She married Jacob Lear (Sr.) in 1775 and had 12 children:

121FA. Elizabeth Lear 3 Jan 1780 (2/3) Nov 1855 (75)

"Jacob and Lidia Liear" were named in Lydia's father's estate of 1785 and participated in the sale of his property north of Clear Spring, Washington County, Maryland, which he had purchased in 1752.[Heiss 1979]

Around that time, the Lears moved northwest to Woodbury Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania, where elder siblings David, Elizabeth, and Samuel moved.[Heiss 1979] By 1788, Jacob had acquired 429 acres in "Woodberry" Township and owned three horses and three cows.[Tax 1788]

The Lears later moved about 30 miles west with the "Dunker" migration to Johnstown, Cambria County, and Quemahoning Township, Somerset County, by 1802. Jacob, a yeoman at the time, purchased 200 acres "at the north side of Solomon's Run" east of Johnstown.[Heiss 1979]

Jacob Lear died in 1812 at about the age of 57.[Heiss 1979]

Lydia (Ulrich/Ulery) Lear died seven years later in 1819 in Cambria County.[Heiss 1979] She was about 63 years old.

Most of the Lear children continued to move west to Montgomery County, Ohio, Elkhart County, Indiana, and St. Joseph County, Indiana.

Susannah (ULRICH) PUDERBAUGH (1759-1830)

121H. Susannah Ulrich was born on May 3, 1759, in Frederick County (probably modern-day Washington County), Maryland. She married Jacob Püderbach/Puderbaugh (Sr.) on January 22, 1782, in either Montgomery Township, Franklin County, Pennsylvania, or neighboring Frederick (Washington) County, Maryland.

Ulrich-Puderbaugh
Susannah's younger sisters Hannah and Mary married Jacob's younger brothers, Henry and George Puderbaugh, Jr., respectively.

By 1786 the Puderbaughs moved northwest to "Woodberry" Township, Morrison's Cove, along with most of Susannah's siblings. There they owned 50 acres, three horses, and three cows, plus rented another 206 acres by 1788.[Tax 1788, Cen 1790]

Jacob was appointed as Justice of the Peace in "Woodberry" Township by Governor Thomas Mifflin on August 31, 1791.[Deed 1791]

September 2011

Jacob acquired a tract called "Hempfield" in Woodberry Township from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on July 27, 1795. A year later he agreed to sell a portion of 63 acres and 65 perches (63.40625) to George Cargher on May 2, 1796, for $213.33. The deal also included a young cow, her calf, and six bushels of rye.[Deed 1796] Jacob and Susannah completed the sale the following year on March 7, 1797. The property was described as adjoining those of John Bower (north), Matthias Brothers, John Cargher, Henry Varner (south), and Christopher Weiks (east).[Deed 1797]

April 2012

Jacob purchased two additional, adjoining tracts totaling 276.75 acres from George Puderbaugh, "of Montgomery Township, Franklin County, yeoman," (believed to be his brother) for £400 on June 9, 1798. The "Tunker Hill" tract of 93 acres adjoined Jacob's existing property to the northwest, and the second "Richland's End" tract of 183 acres lie along the southeast line of the "Tunker Hill" tract. Both met property owned by William Dixon to the southwest.[Deed 1798]

Jacob's father, George (Sr.), "of Air Township," died on September 21, 1800. The administrators of his estate were named as Mary "Buterbaugh" (brother George's widow) and brother Henry "Buterbaugh." They, Jacob Studebaker, and Samuel Ulrich (Hannah's brother) acknowledged an indebtedness of $1,200 to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on October 20, 1800, and sealed themselves to exhibit all goods, chattle, and credits of George's estate to the Orphans' Court of Bedford County to satisfy the debt.[Will 1800]

September 2011A few months later, Jacob was named, along with brother-in-law Adam Burket and the administrators of the estate of Mary Fissel, John Hipple and Henry Markly, in acknowledging a debt of £265 to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on November 27, 1801. The promised to make an accounting of the estate to the Orphans' Court to settle the debt.[Will 1801] The nature of Jacob's claim to the Fissel estate is unknown.

In 1803, Jacob petitioned the Orphans' Court over 275 acres that his father owned in Woodberry Township and adjoined his property and that of John Metsker (Metzger), and Adam Gensinger. Apparently his sister Mary and her husband Adam Burger (Burket) had taken possession of the tract and Jacob sought its value to be distributed among the nine siblings. The court appraised the tract at £517 and 10 shillings, which Mary and Adam Burger accepted and were ordered to pay.[Court 1803]

Later Jacob acquired a parcel of land in Bedford County from George Puderbaugh (presumably from his estate) in 1815, probably about the time that George's family moved west to Montgomery County, Ohio.[Deed 1815]

Children, John, Abraham, and perhaps Mary (Guncle/Kunkle), all moved west to Harrison Township, Darke County, Ohio, by 1820. Son Jacob appears to have settled in neighboring Butler Township to the east of Harrison.[Cen 1820B] Jacob and Susannah, and perhaps daughter Catharine Hoover, remained behind in Woodbury Township and likely eventually followed the migration to Ohio.[Cen 1820A] Daughter Elizabeth Hoover also stayed in the area. Jacob conveyed a parcel of land in Bedford County to her husband Jonathan Hoover about 1822.[Deed 1822]

Jacob Puderbaugh died on September 24, 1822, and was buried at Clark Station Cemetery in Darke County, Ohio, northwest of Dayton. He was 65 years old.

Susannah returned east to Woodbury Township (now North Woodbury Township, Blair County), Pennsylvania, likely with her youngest son David.

Susannah (Ulrich) Puderbaugh died on November 7, 1830, and was buried 500 yards from Stonerock Cemetery in Bedford/Blair County, Pennsylvania.Liebegott She was 71 years old.

Ulrich-Puderbaugh
Hannah's sisters Susannah and Mary married Henry's elder brothers, Jacob and George Puderbaugh, Jr., respectively.

Hannah Susannah (Ulrich) Puderbaugh died on August 2, 1798, a few days after giving birth to her last child, in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. She was only about 36 years old.

September 2011Henry's father, George (Sr.), "of Air Township," died on September 21, 1800. The administrators of his estate were named as Mary "Buterbaugh" (brother George's widow), Henry "Buterbaugh" (signed as "H[ei]nrich Puderbach") They, Jacob Studebaker, and Samuel Ulrich (Hannah's brother) acknowledged an indebtedness of $1,200 to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on October 20, 1800, and sealed themselves to exhibit all goods, chattle, and credits of George's estate to the Orphans' Court of Bedford County to satisfy the debt.[Will 1800] In 1803, Henry's elder brother Jacob petitioned the Orphans' Court over 275 acres that their father owned in Woodberry Township and adjoined properties of Jacob, John Metsker (Metzger) (eldest daughter Mary's father-in-law), and Adam Gensinger. Apparently their sister Mary and her husband Adam Burger (Burket) had taken possession of the tract and Jacob sought its value to be distributed among the nine siblings, including Mary as George's (Jr.) widow. The court appraised the tract at £517 and 10 shillings, which Mary and Adam Burger accepted and were ordered to pay.[Court 1803]

Henry remarried to Susan Stallsmith in 1808. She was 26 years younger--he about 46 years old and she about 20 years old. She was even younger than Henry's three eldest children. Henry and Susan went on to have eight more children--the last when Henry was 69 years old and Susan was 42.

September 2011

Henry acquired a parcel of land in Bedford County from his brother George (presumably from his estate) in 1815, probably about the time that George's family moved west to Montgomery County, Ohio.[Deed 1815]

Henry may have rented 334 acres with a saw mill and fulling mill, three horses, and three cows in Ayr Township, Fulton County (then in Bedford County), Pennsylvania, by 1814.[Tax 1814]

Henry Puderbaugh died on October 7, 1839, in Franklin County. He was 78 years old.

Susan (Stallsmith) Puderbaugh died 26 years later on January 20, 1866. She was 77 years old.

Mary (ULRICH) PUDERBAUGH (~1765-~1844)

121J. Mary Ulrich was born about 1765, in Frederick County (probably modern-day Washington County), Maryland. She married George Puderbaugh (Georg Püderbach) (Jr.) in 1783, probably in Washington County, and had at least five children:

Ulrich-Puderbaugh
Mary's elder sisters Susannah and Hannah married George's brothers, Jacob and Henry Puderbaugh, respectively.

August 2011 The first three children were reportedly born in Washington County, but by 1782 George acquired land in the central area of Morrison's Cove, which in 1782 was part of Frankstown Township, Bedford County and became known as "Woodberry Township." George Butterbaugh (sic) paid taxes on 300 acres near the Daniel Ulrick (sic), John Teeter (sic), Jacob Gripe (sic), John Martin, and George Brumbaugh families in 1782.[Tax 1782] Most of Mary's siblings moved to the area by 1788, which was then part of "Woodberry" Township, but the "Buterbaugh" family apparently remained east in Montgomery Township, Franklin County in 1788 when their 25 acres in "Woodberry Township" was taxed as "non-residents."[Tax 1788]

George Senior and Junior
January 2012As deed records slowly come together, there are two George Puderbaughs to distinguish between--senior and junior. The senior took up residence in "Air Township" (now "Ayr" Township around McConnellsburg and likely including a section of the Great Cove on the west side of Scrub Ridge, which now lies in Licking Creek and Belfast townships). The junior resided in Montgomery Township, Franklin County, although he purchased land in Morrison's Cove, Bedford County, in 1793.
April 2012

George obtained a patent on 183 acres in Morrison's Cove from the Supreme Council of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on November 17, 1788. The tract was part of a larger tract called "Tunker Hill."[Deed 1798] Two years later he obtained a patent on a tract of 93.5 acres that adjoined the "Tunker Hill" tract on its southeast line. This tract was part of a larger tract called "Richland's End."[Deed 1798]

George, "of Montgomery Township, Franklin County," purchased a tract of 25.25 acres called "Elbow Meadow" in "Woodberry Township" from John Hart on April 3, 1793, for £43 and 15 shillings. As named, it was an elbow-shaped strip 20 perches wide (330 feet) that ran north to south about 2,900 feet and then ended in a section 29 perches (478.5 feet) wide. The southwest corner of the "elbow" adjoined William Hart.[Deed 1793]

George, "of Montgomery Township, Franklin County, yeoman," (signed as "Georg Püderbach") sold the contiguous "Tunker Hill" and "Richland's End" tracts, a total of 276.75 acres, to his brother Jacob on June 9, 1798, for £400.[Deed 1798] At the time, Jacob owned land to the northwest of the "Richland's End" tract and William Dixon owned land at the along the southwest where both tracts met.

February 2012George Puderbaugh (Jr.) apparently died sometime in the 1790s, prior to his father's death in 1800.[Will 1800] He would have been in his 30s, and his five children ranged from toddler age to early teens.

February 2012George's father, George (Sr.), "of Air Township," died on September 21, 1800. The administrators of his estate were named as Mary "Buterbaugh" and George's brother, Henry "Buterbaugh." They, Jacob Studebaker, and Samuel Ulrich (Mary's brother) acknowledged an indebtedness of $1,200 to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on October 20, 1800, and sealed themselves to exhibit all goods, chattle, and credits of George's estate to the Orphans' Court of Bedford County to satisfy the debt.[Will 1800] In 1803, George's eldest brother Jacob petitioned the Orphans' Court over 275 acres that their father owned in Woodberry Township and adjoined properties of Jacob, John Metsker, and Adam Gensinger. Apparently their sister Mary and her husband Adam Burger (Burket) had taken possession of the tract and Jacob sought its value to be distributed among the nine siblings, including Mary as George's (Jr.) widow. The court appraised the tract at £517 and 10 shillings, which Mary and Adam Burger accepted and were ordered to pay.[Court 1803]

West to Montgomery County, Ohio, 1810s

Mary and the children moved west with the Ulrichs and German Baptist Brethren migration to Montgomery County, Ohio, in the 1810s. George Puderbaugh (perhaps referring to his estate) sold parcels in Bedford County, Pennsylvania, to brothers Henry and Jacob in 1813 and 1815, respectively.[Deed 1813-1815]

Mary (Ulrich) Puderbaugh died about 1844 in Montgomery County, Ohio. She was about 79 years old.
