Masdalena's sponsors at her baptism at Harrold~s Zion Lutheran Church in Westmoreland County were Peter and Barbara Baum. Some sources give Jacob's wife as Anna Maria, Polly, and Margaretta. Simon Peter Klingensmith, Jacob's son -in-law, wrote in his Bible that his mother-in-law~s name was Magdalena. Magdalena and Jacob are buried in the Smail Cemetery, which is located near the Bethel Church in Armstrong County. In 1978 Hazel Branscum erected a monument at the cemetery in memory of her great great yrandparents and her great grandparents, Joseph and Lavina Smail.

131414 [Tracey3.FTW]

He was baptized by the Rev. John Caspar Stoever. The sponsor at his baptism was John Jacob Yost.

He grew up in the New Hanover neighborhood and was confirmed at New Hanover church in 1744, aged 14 years.

Jacob continued to live in New Hanover for a few years, or at least he had three children baptized there at the New Hanover church. Then he moved a few miles to the northwest and lived in Rockland Township of Berks Co., where he appears on the tax lists for the years 1758-1766, and then disappears (is not on the lists for 1767, 1768, or 1770). He seems to have assessed a medium sized tax there. What became of him -- whether he died or moved away, is not known at present. 
KREBS, Johann Jacob (I442)
 
131415 [Tracey3.FTW]

He was born in Switzerland, where his family had temporarily fled seeking safety from the invasions of Louis XIV armies. Later he lived in Palatinate, near northern Switzerland.

He was tall for the day --- 6'2" and called the runt of the family.

He married a German girl, Anna Susanna Schaeffer. Two of their children were born in Germany, Wilhelm Jr. and Susanna. They emigrated in 1738 from Rotterdam to the English port of Deal, then to Philadelphia, aboard the "Winter Galley". The fare was 5# sterling and the trip took over six weeks. Their child Anna Elizabeth was born at sea. The passengers were allowed to take little with them, but had to take their own food. They arrived in Philadelphia September 3 (5), 1738. Also on board was Anna Susanna's brother John Adam Schaeffer, Jr. and George Smith (who later wed Anna's sister Barbara in Lehigh Twp.)

They settled in Lehigh Township in Northampton County, Pa. near an old Indian trail, not far from Lehigh Gap (near modern towns of Walnutport and Cherryville). At night wolves climbed onto the roof of their cabin and howled. Since rifles were scarce, they had to trap game at first.

Wilhelm's name appears on a petition in 1757 asking for assistance against the Indians. (Pa Archives, Series I, Vol. III, pp.164, 284-286).

He fought in the French and Indian War.

Fought in French and Indian War, and this may have undermined his health.

His estate was appraised at 415 pounds.

Copied from "The old Grave-Yards of Northampton and Adjacent Counties" by John Eyerman in June 1899. 
BEST, Wilhelm (I426)
 
131416 [Tracey3.FTW]

He was taxed on 100 acres of land in 1734.

He was naturalized at the same April term of Court, 1743, as his father, having also taken the sacrament at the same time, April 10, 1743.

In 1741 he was overseer of the poor in New Hanover Township.

He seems to have been out of favor with his father, as indicated by the latter's will, but the mother evidently kept her son in mind, as is shown by her will.

Michael was an early settler in the New Hanover district of Philadelphia County. On October 28, 1742 he bought of Sprogel of his heirs a large tract of 186 acres, within the bounds of the Frankford company's lands. He later sold this property (in 1765) to his son Michael Fedele Jr. and another son Peter Fedele.

He was naturalized at the Court on April 10, 1765. The New Hanover church records speak of him as being a Dunkard (of German Baptist), but his wife was a Lutheran.

Sponsors at his baptism were Michael Fedele, Sr. and his wife, grandparents.

He was in the Revolutionary War. He enlisted first as a private in the 8th Pennsylvania regiment of the Continental Line, and is said to have served throughout the war. He attained the rank of Captain. After the war he held the rank of Major. The Pa. Archives, 5th series, vol 3, p 1379, give a list of the militia officers in the First Battalion, "agreeable to election" of the Westmoreland "Matltia", dated July 7, 1789. The Colonel was Christopher Truby, and the Major was John Cribbs. Later, John accompanied General Arthur St. Clair in his campaign against the Indians, and was killed in the battle when St. Clair was defeated on May 4, 1791. This was during the Northwest Indian Wars. (See Gresham's History of Westmoreland County, and other histories of the time.)

John appears on a tax list of 1789 in Armstrong township of Westmoreland Co., with one tract of land (Pa. Archives, 3rd series, vol 22). His home, however, seems to have been in Hempfield Township, where he appears in the federal census of 1790, as having one male over 16 years (himself), 6 under 16 years, and 3 females.

John, with his brother-in-law John Harrold, was an Administrator of his Father-in-law's estate, that of Christopher Harrold Sr., and signed the bond as such on April 7, 1787. He had acted as the trusted agent of Christopher Harrold for a number of years, as shown by an account of claim made by him against the estate. He also signed the agreement among the heirs of Christopher Harrold which made over the home farm property to the youngest son Daniel Harrold.

After his death in 1791, the administration on his estate was granted to the widow Catherind Cribbs and William Jack, on July 8, 1792. Daniel Harrold and Michael Huffnagle were the sureties on the bond. (Westmoreland Adm. Docket A, p 157)
See Cribbs family genealogy for a list of items enumerated.

He was a potter by trade. Most probably he had learned this trade while a youth from his uncle Michael Fedele Jr., who was a potter. Several of his sons also became potters.
