[8835] The Bremser, Brömser, and Rüdesheim Families

Special print from the Untertaunus,
Yearbook of the homeland-province. 1957 - pages 49-56

By Reverend Dr. Karl May, Bad Schwalbach, Germany.
Excerpted and Translated by Otto Brömser, Franklin, Wisconsin

Again and again we encounter the name of the Bremer in our homeland for instance in the capital of our province in the villages Breithardt, Ramcheid, Kemel, Springen, Nauroth, Grebenroth and in the settlement Schönberg. Many families of our province got their wives from the families of the Bremer; and if we go back into the past the line of the villages, farm and mills in which the Bremsers once lived increases and widens considerably.

When I heard for the first time this family name, which also appears in the form of Brömser and which developed from the older form of names, like Brümser, Brumpser, and Brimpser, I was reminded from one of the names of one of the most famous of names of families of nobility of the Rheinland, the Brömser of Rüdesheim. Immediately I suspected, that the citizen-name Bremser was a sideline of the name of the noble family of the Brömser This opinion wins on probability through a contract which the Brothers Dietrich and Heinrich Brömser of Rüdesheim made on January 2nd 1539.

Dietrich, who married below his rank, but wished to be connected with the mother of his children, who was a commoner had, according to a state law of those times, to give up the right to the inheritances of his Father and his Mother which now fall to his Brother Heinrich, who was married to Antonia of Ingelheim, who came from a noble family. The latter, however, pledged, to provide well for his Brother up to his death. The Brother should receive each year 125 Gulden which were referred to a property of a Camp and several incomes in towns to the left and right side of the Rhine. Dieter's children of unequal quality of birth should be provided for through entering the clerical rank or, if this was not to their liking should be paid off with 70 Gulden each. But, apparently none of the children was to become a monk or a priest.

From one of the sons Best or Sebastian Brumpser we know with certainty that he remained in the worldly rank of his noble forefathers. His nephew, Heinrich Engelhard presented to him a farm in the "Hellen", with all the fields belonging to it in place of the present Klunkhardshofes; it could be that he liked especially well this unequal relative, or that he was not able to get together the promised amount of compensation. When Heinrich Engelhard had died, on the 19th of October, 1567, he attempted to be the guardian of his son Johann Reichard who had taken on the common name Of Best Bremser to push him out of the farm. His petition to leave him the uncontested inheritance was a success. However, Johann, Heinrich Brömser's son, who was declared of age in 1585, insisted strongly that the three sons of Best Bremer, who in the meantime had died, should leave the farm. However, the three brothers Ludwig, Philip and Andreas, declared in the year 1590 that this petition represented a slander, born out of envy, and the noble relative was told that they had planned to sell the old family property, where in truth none of them had the slightest wish to do that; but that one should live in the house "in the hell" and that they should furnish the services and carry the services of the noble ones.

Since that time Bremser Citizens cannot be anymore accounted for in Rüdesheim. Evidently he had succeeded to drive the brothers from their living quarters, However, we are not perfectly able to prove where these three brothers or their Father, Sebastian, found housing and bread, but a striking inconspicuous oral tradition of a line of the citizens Bremser leads us to the right track. When the owner of a shoe factory Andreas Bremser, born at Dehrn on the Lahn river and living in Hamm in Westfalen visited me on an exploratory trip of the history of the family on September 27, 1949 in Kemal, he told me the following:

"My Great Great Grandfather Johann George Bremser comes from Dickschied. He hired himself out as a farm hand in Limburg, made the acquaintance of a girl from Dehrn, married her in the year 1820 and settled down in Dehrn. His son, my Grandfather, who spent the last years of his life in Limburg, called me once to his room, when I was about nine years old. I feared already that he wanted to scold me because I had done some mischief which had caused his displeasure, but then he began in ceremonial ernest: Andreas, I have to tell you something, what my Father had told me; but you shall not talk to others about it because it represents a shame. We are descendents of robbing Knights. Of course, now grass has grown over it, but it may be stirred up again. Only pass it on as I have told you to family members and descendents and speak once with your Father about it."

Now and then I asked my Father, he confirmed the statements of my Grandfather and added to it about the following:

"The Bramsers have always been free people, they did not have to do any enforced labor services like others who were compelled to do the work in the fields or by wagons: Our Forefathers were evangelic and have become catholic first in Dehrn: Originally they lived in the land of the Archbishop of Mainz. But because they did business with the Fuggers in Augsburg, he drove them out, and they settled down in the Heath of Kemeln. There they made their living by hard work. Even today Bremsers are still living there making a frugal living. You do not have to be ashamed of your forefathers, but can be proud of them. Our name is not really Bremser, but Brömser."

Whoeever. for many years past by, has not forgotten the desire of many citizens to date back their forefathers from noble lines, will meet rightfully such stories with distrust. What, however, strengthens the confidence of the family tradition of the Bremser's is in respect to the fact that it was passed on as a secret which was guarded carefully and that the noble descendents of robber knights was considered as a shame. The oral tradition was also confirmed through the descendents of Dieter Brömser of Rüdesheim and through the principality of Katzenellenhogen which existed since 1577 in the Rheingau. Their inhabitants bore the name of Brömser.

So it was possible that a Johannes Brombser at Nastätten, who estimated his assets and all his food at 40 Gulden (guilders), could very well have been a son Dietrich and a brother of that Sebastian who at first could still live in Rudesheim. One can very well consider the brothers Peter and Heinrich Brömser of Nahstätten as the sons of Johannes. According to a list of the deceased and living citizens of Nahstätten 1628/36, Peter Brombser was dead and among the living ones one could find only a Frederick Brombser. One may add to this branch of the family the Constable Master Heinrich Brumzer living at the fortress Neukatzenelnbogen, the so called 'Katz' (cat) who from 1631 on had baptized children and who asked at the baptism of his son Philip on January 26, 1634 that Philipp Brümser from Bornich be the Godfather. To the present neighboring province, St. Goarshausen, belongs also a Peter Brümbser whose possessions were estimated at 250 Gulden. The name of Peter puts him into the neighborhood of an older Peter Bremser at Lollschied, whose widow was married to the son of Adam Klosz Schnatz zu Klingenbach on October 17, 1612 at the chapel of Pohl.

In our province, we take at first a Philip Brombser at Grebenroth who from 1614 on had children baptized and who, according to date, could be the same person as Philipp Brombser. who was placed from 1628 on in Egenroth had himself pursued till 1652 and was mayor of the Vierherrengerichts (Four Lords Cour) at the Altenberg. In his house the plague (die Pest) broke out and snatched away the second born son Andreas, on the 23rd of October, 1628 the oldest son Johannes and on the last day of this month the daughter Sybille died. Whoever was spared by the pest (plague) in this year had to bear the entire hardness of the war which for over 30 years raged in our land. The house book of Peter Bremer reports from these days of the terrors of Niedermeilingen. In the year 1635 they plundered this land and ravaged It. Many people were shot to death, murdered with pouring in water so that we could not stay at our farm for four years. Then came a great increase of prices. A bag of grain did cost 10 Thaler, one pound of cheese or butter one half Spanish Thaler. Therefore many died in our village and some on account of hunger so that the two villages Ober-and-Niedermeilingen had died out, except for 12 people, five old ones and seven young ones.

Likewise hardly hit by the needs of the time were evidently the inhabitants of the village Zorn which belonged to the section of Niedeimeilingen. Here in 1623 lived a Jakob Bremser and his wife Elisabeth who was judged to have possessions of 125 Golden in 1628. Their son Johann Philipp Brömser who was born in 1604 and from the year 1634 on was mayor at the court of Zorn, had himself better protected through the fortresses Burgen Katz, Reichenberg and Rheinfels from the war (Kriegsvölker) in 1644 and fled to Patersberg and had found a better place to stay in the community house Of that town. One granted him a concession to sell beverages and named him innkeeper. In a Lutheran Baptism book of St. Goarshausen appears his name as Mirth zu Patersberg (innkeeper of Patersberg). In the year 1650 he is officially referred to as mayor of the court of Zorn and in any case temporarily he has seen to it that the law was observed. He died on January 20, 1654 at Patersberg at the age of 50. The death sermon was about Psalm 116,15. The Death of His Holy Ones is held high before the Lord.

When conditions became more stable the families of the Brömser could hold their belongings the inheritances of Zorn, for a while longer. Johann Wilhelm Brömser born In Zorn on the second of November 1679 was probably able to hold their belongings for a while longer. He had probably married into a family of Dickschied. Here children and grandchildren were born to him. Then new members came from Niedermeilingen to Dickschied. Johann Peter Bremser married Anna Elisabetha Krüger at Dickschied, as we know already. Her son, Johann Georg, born January 5th 1789 founded the Dehrner line. The family of the Bremser was still flourishing in Dickschied in the previous century. When a great fire had laid almost the entire village in ashes on September 13, 1859, a Martin Bremser, who lived in Frankfurt at the Goethe Square 22, called for help in the Intelligenzblatt of Frankfurt in the form of money to rebuild the village.

The line Bremser can also be traced back through Johann Jacob Bremser, born on the 3rd of July 1687 at Zorn, and through the marriage of Johann Jacob to Anna Elizabetha Greb on November 26, 1709. Also, through the marriage of his son, Johann Peter to Maria Margaretha Kläner at Mappershain on January 23, 1731. This family is today still living on in Erich Bremser, the owner of the Estate Schönberg.

Again it was a Johann Wilhelm Bremser, born in Zorn, who was married on February 5, 1737 to Maria Elisabetha Huth at the Altenberg and by this settled the family in Martenroth where they built new buildings in 1747. A son was born to him on March 9, 1749 named Johann Peter. He took over these buildings upon his father's death. This line of Martenroth produced not only a line of excellent peasants, but also gave its village, since the beginning of the 19th century for over 100 years, for sighted and capable mayors. Yes, it gave to the Untertaunus Kreis (the section of the lower Taunus) a man of unselfish character. Philipp Bremser, mayor of his hometown from 1879-1920, since 1880 Elder of the congregation of the church at the Altenberg, belonged to the 'Kreistag' from 1892-1920 and at the same time from 1904-1919 belonged to the presidium of that place. One often and gladly remembers this excellent peasant who died at 94 on November 8, 1933. He bad worked tireless, with dignity and in excellent health. Without being able to use the present practical means of transportation, he walked on foot from his home at the farthest border of his county at first to Kemel in order to stay overnight at his son's, Secretary of Forestry at the forest office Erlenhof. The son is now state forester and retired. Karl Bremser reached the next day the capital of the county and made the return way in the same manner.

For us of today he is a wonderful example that on the heights of the Taunus just as gifted and modest people live who are capable of wonderful accomplishments; for this reason it has to be still higher valued how the fathers of this Bremer fought the battle of existence under less fortunate conditions and succeeded. We heard already of plagues and troubles of war, under which members of the Bremser family had especially severe to suffer; all this can be proven. Let us furthermore add that our unfruitful heights far and wide, which were covered only with heather, and one began first at the begin of the 19th century to intensify the care of land and forests. Then the picture of the surroundings of the Bremser's of the 16th till to the 18th century becomes more gloomy. One may assume that the Bremsers also used as possibilities to make a living in this unproductive region. Sheep still find nourishment where cattle had to starve to death, and poor acres are suitable for the raising of flax as it was proven during the last war. So the Laufenselder Pastor Valentin Imhoff who was born in Springen, reports in his Chronik, which was written in the year 1598, in the lower Duchy of Katzenelenbogen that in Nastätten, Schwalbach, Laufenselden, Springen and in other places wool is made and very good cloth, which is sold at the fairs in Frankfurt and bought by the Swiss and merchants of the upper countries with great desire and it is sent into the most remote regions.

All this is also stated and coincides with the reports and books of inventory of the trade firm Anton Haug, Hans Langenauer, Ulrich Link and relatives of Augsburg of the year 1550 the Nastätter, Allendorfer, Langenschwalbacher, Dreispringer who introduce cloth from Springener and Panroder Tuche. So we are hardly wrong in the assumption that the trippmakers Jacob and Johannes Bremser who settled in Gotha must have been born 1622 and from whom Jacob got married in 1648. Johannes, however, got married in Gotha in 1646, emigrated from our territory where wool and linen was made. A last bearer of the name of Bremser, city secretary Robert Bremer, died first in Gotha in 1934. The wig maker Johann Gottfied Bremser, who was born June 5, 1706, was the son of the candidate Johann Nicolai Bremser, born in Gotha. Johann Nicolai brought the name to Wertheim at the Rhine and married the widow of the innkeeper 'To the Golden Crown' on September 1, 1733. His son, Johann Christoph, born on August 9, 1735 in Wertheim attended the Latin School in 1754 till 1756 in Idsteiner and became secretary in his hometown.

Finally we shall not overlook a branch of the generation of the Bremsers who flourished in a section close to our neighhorhood of the province. When Hans Bardtt had baptized his son in the overhigh Village of Presburg on March 12, 1609, it was John, the son of Nikolaus Brembser, who was Godfather. This Nikolaus Brambser had died already when his daughter, Jodokus Ossener, was baptized by him on the 16th of August 1615. Matthäus Brömser born 1708, moved to Lorchhausen. He was a teacher there. His son functioned as Staats-csessist and judge in Rüdesheim in 1806-26. In the next generation we meet lawyer George Brömser of Rüdesheim and Wiesbaden, born 1607, who died 1846, father of the medical doctor George Brömser (1646-1916. Of his three sons Karl Brömser was a medical doctor (1876-1917) and exercised this vocation at the Josefs-Hospital in Wiesbaden. Max Brömser confirmed himself in 1883-1955 as Owner of a vineyard in Rüdesheim, and Dr. Philipp Brömser (1886-1940) worked as an esteemed professor of physiology at the University of Muenich, Munchen.

With purpose we gave the different forms of our family names because they bring out in their manyfold form a great uncertainty of their literal meaning. Recently we also learned the Latin form of the name through a document of the year 1294. Here the name Brömser or Bremser is given through the Latin word 'primicerius'. Primicerius will say 'Vorstreiter'. First fighter or warrior and means that knight who in battle stood in first place, and at the same time had to determine in the capacity of carrier of the banner the direction and most important place of the battle. The people who did riot understand Latin, made out of the Primicer a 'Brümser' this means a bee who is able to prick or a 'Bremser' who is able to bring someone into difficult circumstances, in both cases added names for a knight who in no case lacked humor.

The name Brömser is also explained according to its original meaning judge, similar as the one of Schenk of Liebenstein or Marschall Of Waldeck. Evidently, a forefather of our generation was a nobleman of the common Bremsers during 1200 or 1300 and also a fire-fighter and banner carrier of the public commons. Perhaps this office was inherited through several generations as it is to be observed in similar circumstances. Such an office would be equivalent to the meaning of a generation as it is to be found for the first time in a Giselbert of Rüdesheim (1130-1152). His son Konrad (1171-1173) was Viztum, this means substitute of the Archbishop of Mainz in the Rhine province. Heinrich Brömser had the same office (1509-1543) who at the time of the Peasant Revolution in the year 1525 showed understanding ability to solve the problems of the people, skill at the negotiations and moderating influence at the debates of these enterprises. Johann Brömser (1376-1423) was steward of the Archbishop of Mainz. Johann Reichard Brömser (1566-1622), First Counselor and Empirial Main Judge of the estate Königstein, since 1614, First Stuard and Vitztum at Mainz and in the Mine Province. Also, the last one of the generation, raised to nobility, Heinrich Brömser from Rüdesheim (1600-1668) united in his person the high offices of Viztum at Mainz, of Court Judge and Empirial Secretary as well as the Empirial Counselor of the office. The fact that Heinrich Brömser lent 2000 Gulden in 1537 to the Count Wilhelm of Nassau-Dillenbarg and the same amount in the year 1544 proves the great riches of the Brömser Family. The Crest shows a shield in silver and a black shield foot which is covered with six or eight lillies.

Not all too often one will meet a generation the history of which can be followed up over many centuries and which so faithfully remained to the soil of the homeland. Not all too often Its history can also be followed up through many centuries of war and hardship.

[843] Heinrich Gottlieb Bremser had a brother named Phillip Bremser (the mason). This Phillip Bremser was actually Phillip II. I know this because my father-in-law is Phillip Bremser IV and he recalls his father, Phillip III speaking of his father who was a mason in Norwalk, Ohio. More than a coincidence I bet. I suppose the only thing I can offer is the name of Heinrich's father, that being Phillip Bremser the first.

Dale Norwood, NC
10/22/99

In Philipp Gottleib Bremser's marriage record, his father is noted to be a "linenweaver."

Philipp Bremser is "buried on the grave yard of the church on the Altenberg. When you enter the grave yard through the iron door, there is left hand the grave of Philipp Bremser in the first row. An old iron cross with a sign of china displays the words:

Hier in diesem Rosengarten - Here in this rose garden
Thue ich meine Familie erwarten. - Am I waiting for my family.
Kinder gehet nicht vorbei, - Children donīt pass by,
Denkt dass ich Euer Vater sei. - Think that I am your father.

There was a consolidation of villages about 1970. All small villages were connected to become larger villages. For example Heidenrod is an artificial name and a collection of 15 villages, of which Egenroth and Grebenroth are some.

[1054] Harriet Diuguid wrote a letter ca 1903 to her Cousin Lizzie (Mary Elizabeth Diuguid) who married William Alston Bourland in Nov 1841. In it Harriet listed her address as 117 S. Jefferson St., Roanoke, VA, which was the address of her son, John Everett Diuguid.

We are indebted to the descendants of Mary Elizabeth Diguid for sharing this letter which preserved so much information that might otherwise be lost. Elizabeth Randolph Shemwell (Skerritt) and her family were on their way home to Rochester, New York from Benton, Kentucky where they had attended the funeral of her sister, Julia Shemwell (Cotton) when their car was stolen and the original letter along with her Diuguid family research was lost. We are thankful that we have copies of her letter which gives so much information on the family of George Diuguid and Nancy Sampson.

Dear (Cousin) Lizzie,

I have always heard that our forefathers were originally French Hugenots who fled to Scotland from religious persecution and remained there until they called themselves Scots. Some time way back in the seventeen hundreds, four Diuguid brothers came to America, two of them settled in Virginia, one in what is now Kentucky and one in Georgia or Mississippi. The one from whom we are descended, I do not know his name, but suppose it was William Diuguid. He had a son named William D. who settled near Bent Creek in what is now the lower part of Appomattox County. Said William Diuguid had a son named George D.(iuguid) who was a Revolutionary soldier and he was our grandfather. He had seven sons and four daughters. William D. (son of George) married Miss Susannah Thornhill. They had eleven children and raised all except one who was, killed when he was eleven years old by a runaway horse. All of his family have passed away until you come to his grandchildren and they are very many in number.

George Diuguid's next son, Sampson Diuguid, married Miss Martha Patteson. They had ten children but only raised three of this number, namely: David, George and Harriet, the writer of this record, and I am the only representative of that generation of Sampson.

Stephen Diuguid married Miss Furbush. They had three children only and raised two of them, a son and a daughter. The daughter is still living - a Mrs. Pelter at her father's old homestead in Campbell Co., Va.

George Diuguid (11) married Miss Betsy Christian from near Richmond. They moved to Calloway Co., Ky. directly after their marriage. They had only two children. Their first son named Christian died when 6 or 8 years old of measles at Gauley Bridge in West Va. Uncle George had another son, William Diuguid, who lived to be 83 years old, raised seven sons and two daughters. His death occasioned the first link in his family to be broken. He was about ten or twelve years old when his father, Uncle George Diuguid died. Then his mother wrote to my father, Sampson Diuguid, to come to Kentucky and move her back to Va. as she wanted him to help her raise her two sons. He went at once to help her. They started on their journey back the third day after he arrived, and when they reached West Virginia, the death of her son, Chrlstian occurred. After his burial, they continued their journey to Virginia, and Cousin William lived with my father, he and his mother until he was 25 years old. He then returned to Murray, Calloway Co. Ky. where he spent his remaining days. My brother, George, and Cousin William were educated together, learned their trades together, and lived as brothers until Cousin William moved back to Kentucky.

James Diuguid married Miss Snead. They had one child, a son. He was killed in the Confederate War in the Battle of the Wilderness. Uncle James Settled in Salem, Va. and lived until his death in that place.

Uncle Edwin Diuguid was married but he moved out to Missouri in or near Franklin Co., but I never heard whom he married. He never returned to Va. He died and left three children, two daughters and one son. He and his son both followed the same course in life. They prospected in lead mines, but neither of them made any success in their occupation.

Uncle Jacob married Miss Caroline Patteson the first marriage. She did not live but a few years, died and left one son, James E. Diuguid. He did not live many years. He left one son named after himself. He is now living in Carroll Co., Ky. and has a family. I do not know much about them. Uncle Jacob's second wife, Miss Jett, of Kentucky, died,, They had four children: Hiram, Mrs. Dr. Gaines of Warsaw, Mrs. Owen of Ghent, and Mrs. J. I. Baker of Jett Co. Ky.

This closed the account of Grandfather's sons. His four daughters were Judy, who never married; Mary married William H. Patteson, an uncle of mine on my mother's side, and moved to Indiana. They had only one child. She is still living in Chicago, Mrs. Annie Anthony. Nancy married David B. Patteson. They had four children: three daughters and a son, Mrs. Lucy Christian, wife of Dr. W. Diuguid Christian, Mrs. Ann Price who died in Ky., Rozella died when just 17 years old and Cousin David Marcellus is the son, you know, who is at the Confederate Home in Oldham Cost Ky. and I expect he is getting quite feeble by this time. He and I are the only ones of the old ones now living. He is six years older than I am, living in the third year of borrowed time -that brings me in my 73rd year, but I am happy to tell you that I am not helpless by any means. I am able to help about domestic affairs. As yet I do not like to be waited on but will do all I can as long as I am able to do.
Aunt Betsy Diuguid-is the last one of Grandfather George Diuguid's children to mention. She married a Baptist preacher named Mace Harris and had several children. I knew all of her daughters. All of them are dead. She had several sons but I do not know anything of them. In fact I never met them at all.

About two years ago, a Mrs. Cummings came to Lynchburg, she said to hunt her Diuguid relatives. She said her grandmother was Ann Diuguids her grandfather was William Harriss, her mother was a Jeffries. They live in Selma, Alabama. Mrs. Cummings resembles the Diuguid family very much indeed. Her mother is a widow, has three daughters and Mrs. Cummings is the oldest, the only one who is married. She has one child, a girl. Her sisters have names of the Diuguid family up to the present date. I am not able to trace her family relationship up. I sincerely wish I could,. Perhaps she is a descendant of the original Diuguid brother who came from Scotland and settled in Georgia or Mississippi. I do not mean him really but a son or a grandson of his and perhaps the Harriss name of her grandfather might be related in some way to Aunt Betsy Harris. If you can find out anything of this connection I would be more than glad for you to let me know concerning it.
In the last letter I had from you, you asked me for the record of the Diuguid family. I have never been able to get the one Aunt Judy Diuguid had when she lived at Uncle Jacobs. I wrote for it but they said it had gotten lost. Dr. William Diuguid Christian had one also but I received the same account of that as I did Aunt Judy's. It had gotten lost in moving so I concluded I would try to do the best I could with my knowledge to write you all as I know of no other source from which you will gather as much as you will in this letter.

I left you too quickly in telling you about Uncle Jacob's life transactions so I will have to go back and finish his course out for you. He was married four times. I told you of twice so now comes the third time. This time he married near St. Louis or Lewisville, I do not know which. This wife was either a schoolteacher or owned and ran a cattle raising farm, I do not know which. Indeed I do not know her name. He had no children by his last two wives.

His fourth wife was a widow Warfield, nee Miss Joyce Diuguid, a daughter of Cousin George E. Diuguid, perhaps the descendant of the brother from Scotland who settled in Kentucky. Uncle Jacob's fourth wife had a sister named Mrs. Susan Drake, who had a daughter named Georgie. I saw them once. They came to visit my father in Lynchburg about 1840. 1 was then about ten years old. This last wife had a daughter by her Warfield husband who is a Mrs. Dortch, somewhere near Trenton, Ky., if I am not mistaken. I do not know where Uncle Jacob's last wife is. She outlived him. She was the first lady Uncle Jacob ever addressed? and after refusing him the first time, she married Rev. Warfield and he died and her his widow. She remained a widow whilst Uncle Jacob married and lost three wives. Then he returned and married his first love.

Well, Cousin Lizzie, as I imagine your patience has been entirely worn out, I will draw this long letter to a close hoping that the limit of your patience has not been so severely tried that you will not honor me with a reply. I wish I could come to see you instead of write to you but I have put the visiting time off too long. Perhaps I could not make the trip safely. My only regret is that I did not undertake it whilst Cousin William was alive and I deeply regret not writing this letter because I think he would have enjoyed it so very much. I wish some of you all western relations would pay us a visit. Indeed we would be glad to see you or any of your father's family for I certainly love to see my relatives and it I cannot see them I love to write them. So with very much love for you and yours - your entire family, I will close this letter hoping that you will write me very soon. Give my love to your mother and to your sisters and brothers when you see them.

My address:
(Signed)
Mrs. H. L. Diuguid,
111 N. Jefferson St.,
Roanoke, Va.

It is said that there is a street in West Salem, VA. called Diuguid Lane and that they Harriett and William Diuguid lived there. However there a deed on file in Salem, Va., Roanoke Co Court House in Book F, page 273, dated 21 July 1858 stating that wiliam Diuguid bought from William Deaton and wife, Mary K., lot 53, Salem, Va. being fronted on Main Street, sixteen poles deep to back on Clay Street. He paid some of the price and gave a lein for $400.00 due on 1 July 1858 for the balance.

[1245] Patrick Henry was born 29 May 1736 at Studley in Hanover Co., Va. In March 1775, Patrick Henry urged his fellow Virginians to arm in self-defense, closing his appeal (uttered at St. John's Church in Richmond, where the legislature was meeting) with the immortal words: "Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Gentlemen may cry peace! Peace! But there is no peace! The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the North will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death."

He became the spokesman of the southern colonies in the stirring period that led to the Revolution. After the war, he aided in drawing up Virginia's state constitution in 1776 and was the first elected governor of the State of Virginia.

An Historical Sketch of Scotchtown, Home of Patrick Henry 1771-1777

"Patrick Henry was born in 1736 at Studley in the eastern end of Hanover County. At age eighteen he married Sarah Shelton of nearby Rural Plains, Va. She was the daughter of John and Eleanor Parks Shelton, owner of Hanover Tavern which was, and still is, located across the road from Hanover Courthouse."

The pamphlet then writes about their home in Scotchtown and says:

"There are a number of portraits in the mansion. Among the most interesting are four primitives, done by unknown artists, of relatives of Patrick Henry's first wife, Sarah Shelton. They are likenesses of Major Thomas Shelton, a first cousin of Sarah Shelton, who served with Lafayette in the Revolution; Sarah Miller Shelton, Major Shelton's third wife; Marry Massie Shelton, daughter of Major Shelton and his first wife, Cecelia Dabney; and Joseph Shelton, who served as a scout with Lafayette, a bachelor brother of Major Shelton."

From "History of the American Nation" by William J. Jackman (9 Volumes), Volume 8, The Builders of the Republic

Patrick Henry was born at "Studley," Hanover county, Virginia, May 29, 1736; son of John and Sarah (Winston) Syme Henry, and grandson of Alexander and Jean (Robertson) Henry, of Scotland, who came to Virginia prior to 1730, and of Isaac and Mary (Dabney) Winston. John Henry was a member of the Church of England, a classical scholar, and a brother of the Rev. Patrick Henry, first rector of St. George's parish, Spottsylvania county, and ultimately of St. Paul's parish, Hanover county. His mother was a Presbyterian, a sister of Rev. William Robertson, of the Old Grey Friars Church, Edinburgh, and cousin of Rev. William Robertson, the Scottish historian. After Patrick was ten years old, his father was his only tutor. He became proficient in Latin, gained a little knowledge of Greek and was a good mathematician. He was well versed in ancient and modern history when he was fifteen, and had acquired some knowledge of the French language. When eighteen years of age he established with his brother William, a country store which they conducted unprofitably one year and then wound up the business. He was married in 1754 to Sarah, daughter of John Shelton, also of Hanover county. He made a poor existence by farming and was frequently helped by his father. To add to his misfortunes, his dwelling house was burned, together with his furniture. He then sold some of his negroes and with the proceeds purchased a stock of goods for a country store. Two years' experience found him in debt. He thereupon commenced the study of law, and within six weeks after taking up "Coke upon Littleton" and "Digest of the Virginia Acts," he appeared before Peyton and John Randolph, George Wythe, Robert C. Nicholas and Edmund Pendleton, at Williamsburg, to be examined for admission to the bar. The Randolphs signed the license, but Wythe refused, while Nicholas and Pendleton, on promise of future reading, also signed the license. Henry appears to have been sensible to his deficiencies, for he continued his studies some months before beginning to practice. On November 3, 1763, he was retained by the colony in the celebrated "parsons cause," involving the constitutionality of the "option law," also known as the "twopenny act," passed by the Virginia legislature in 1757. He discussed the mutual relations and reciprocal duties of the King to his subjects and of the clergy to their parishioners, and when he declared that the King who would insist on such a principle as advanced would, instead of remaining the father of his people, degenerate into a tyrant and would forfeit all his rights to the obedience of his subjects, the murmur of "treason" ran through the court-house. When the jury brought in a verdict of one penny for the plaintiff, the people bore the young advocate on their shoulders in triumph around the court-yard. Patrick Henry, in the Hanover court-house, had struck the keynote of the American revolution. In 1765 he was elected to the house of burgesses. He took his seat May 20, and met all his examiners of two years before except John Randolph, besides many other distinguished statesmen of Virginia. Nine days after he had taken his seat he offered resolutions denying the right of Great Britain to enforce the Stamp Act in Virginia. Peyton Randolph, Pendleton, Wythe, and others opposed the resolutions, but after what Jefferson characterized a "most bloody" debate, Henry carried his resolutions by a majority of one. It was in this debate that he electrified the house with "Caesar had his Brutus, Charles the First his Cromwell, and George the Third --" "Treason! treason!" re-echoed from every part of the house. Without faltering, but rising to a loftier attitude and fixing on the speaker an eye which seemed to flash fire. Henry completed his sentence, "may profit by their example. If this be treason make the most of it." From that moment Patrick Henry was the political leader of Virginia. In 1769 he was admitted to practice in the general court and attained eminence in criminal cases. In May, 1773, he helped in organizing and was a member of the committee of correspondence. In 1774 he was delegate to the Virginia convention, the first public assembly to recommend an annual general Congress. He was a delegate to the Continental Congress, 1774-76, and opened his first session by a speech in which he declared, "I am not a Virginian, but an American." He served on the committee to prepare the address to the King, but his draft was too advanced for the conservative party, and the address was modified. When the proposition of Joseph Galloway for a plan of reconciliation with England was before Congress and apparently had the sanction of that body, Mr. Henry led the opposition and was the only one to speak against it. The vote of one colony defeated the measure, and Patrick Henry alone arose to the occasion that precipitated the war. He moved before the Virginia convention, March 23, 1775, to put the colony in a state of defence preparatory to war which was threatening. The delegates met in St. John's Episcopal Church, Richmond, and Mr. Henry for two days listened to the proceedings toward an amicable settlement of the colonies and England. He foresaw in any compromise acceptable to the King, absolute submission that would be little less than slavery, and he prepared a set of resolutions providing for an immediate organization of the militia and the placing of the colony in a condition of defense. The reading of these resolutions alarmed some, who asked him to withdraw his resolutions. Instead of this he pronounced his immortal oration, closing with the sentence, "I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" The Virginia convention of 1775 made him commander of all the Virginia forces, and commissioned him colonel of the First Virginia Regiment. When the Virginia troops were taken into the Continental army, Congress commissioned a subordinate, brigadier-general, and offered a single regiment to Colonel Henry, who declined any commission from that body. He was elected to the Virginia convention of May, 1776, charged with "the care of the republic," the royal governor having fled. This convention framed a new constitution and elected Henry the first governor of the state on the first ballot. He was re-elected in 1777, 1778, 1784 and 1785, and in 1786 declined a reelection.
In 1777 he planned and sent out the George Rogers Clarke expedition which conquered the northwest. He served in the Virginia convention that ratified the Federal constitution, and after vehemently opposing it as dangerous to the liberties of the people, he offered amendments to the instrument which were partially adopted. In 1794 he declined the appointment of United States senator, made by Governor Henry Lee, and withdrew from public life. In 1795 he declined the position of secretary of state in President Washington's cabinet, in 1796 the position of chief justice of the United States supreme court, and the nomination for governor of Virginia, and in 1797, the mission to France offered by President Adams. In 1799 he allowed himself to be elected to the state legislature in order to oppose the Virginia resolutions of 1798, but he died before taking his seat. His first wife died in 1775, and October 9, 1777, he married Dorothea Spotswood Dandridge, a granddaughter of Governor Alexander Spotswood.

Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography, Volume II, I--Fathers of the Revolution
His life was written by William Wirt (1817); by Alexander H. Everett in Sparks' "American Biography" (1844-48); by Moses Coit Tyler in "American Statesmen" (1887), and by his grandson, William Wirt Henry (3 vols. 1891-92). His body lies in a grave on the estate in Charlotte county, where he formerly fived, and the simple gravestone is inscribed with the one line, "His Fame His Best Epitaph." He died at "Red Hill," Charlotte county, June 6, 1799."

Also, I give unto her, for her use if she shall want thesame, all the wood I have in my homelott and pasture. I give unto WilliamPhelps, my eldest son, all the lands I have at the place called the MillBrook. In case he have no lawfull issue, he shall have the use of sd.lands during his natural life. And if my son Ebenezer shall be helpful tohim and be at cost and charge in helping of him under any difficulty hemay be under by reason of his weakness and infirmity or otherwise as hemay be in necessity of, that he shall be rewarded for the same out of sd.lands. And after the decease of my sd. son William, if he shall not haveheirs as aforesd., not having necessity of spending the same, that thenthe 1-2 of the remainder that he shall leave I give and bequeath to myson Ebenezer and to his heirs forever, and ye other half to my two sonsCaleb and Jacob forever. Also, I give to my son William all my woolenwearing apparrel. My will and pleasure is that my three sons, viz.,Ebenezer, Caleb and Jacob, shall have equal share of my estate. Andinasmuch as Ebenezer has already received near 80, as by my book mayappear, my will is that Caleb and Jacob, and their heirs and assignsforever, shall have so much of my land (where they shall choose) as isinventoried accordingly and will amount to such sum to each of them as Ihave given already to Ebenezer. My will is that all the remainder of mylands shall be equally divided between my three sons, Ebenezer, Caleb andJacob. I give unto my daughter Ruth 80, to be paid her out of mymoveable estate at inventory apprisement (excepting 3 of the worst of myestate not to be forst upon her). Also, I give unto her half of my wooland half of my flax, also a pilion and pilion cloth, and 1 cotton sheet.My will and pleasure is that Ebenezer Phelps, Caleb Phelps and JacobPhelps be my executors.

[12259] Carol Mitchell in Bell-Southerland Notes, January, 2001:
" 1772 Herndon et al. v. Carr: By a codicil to his will annexed, datedAug 12, 1760, he empowered his executors, of whom Southerland a defendantwas one, to divide his personal estate according to his will. Within afew days afterwards, one Walter Chiles having a considerable estate inlands, slaves, and personal goods, died intestate, leaving as hisrepresentatives, the children of two deceased sisters, viz. The testatorWilliam Carr, and his younger brothers and sisters, children of theeldest sister, and the defendant Southerland and his younger brothers andsisters, children of the youngest sister. Where by the sd. William Carr,the testator and the sd Southerland, became entitled each to a moiety ofthe slaves of the said Chiles, paying to their brothers and sisters aproportion of their value. "
Makes it clear that Joseph Southerland married the younger sister ofWalter Chiles. A lot of people thought that Joseph had married aFendall because of the number of Southerland children using Fendall as afirst or middle name, beginning with his own son.

Out of the struggle with small opportunities J. B. Bartholomew has come finally into a field of broad and active influence and usefulness. Industry has been the root of his notable success and added to this is the quality of quick discernment and the faculty of separating the important features of any subject from its incidental or accidental circumstances. In other words, sound judgment passes upon the value of every situation. The broader spirit of the new twentieth century finds expression in his activities as the president of the Avery Company, manufacturers of farm implements and machinery. This is the largest manufacturing plant of the city and in addition to the position of president which he fills in this connection he is also the president of the Bartholomew Company, manufacturers of the Glide automobile. Moreover, the soundness of his judgment and the wisdom of his opinions are uniformly recognized. Mr. Bartholomew's identification with the Avery Company dates from December 8, 1879, when he began driving a team used in hauling lumber, his salary being a dollar and ten cents per day. He has been a life-long resident of Peoria county, his birth having occurred upon a farm in Elmwood township, February 19, 1863. His parents were Albertus Y. and Mary E. (Ennis) Bartholomew. The father was the second white child born in Elmwood township and was a son of Luzern Bartholomew, who was the first settler in Peoria county north of what is now the town of Elmwood. He took up his abode there at a very early period in the settlement of this part of the state and subsequently went to California in 1849, attracted by the gold discoveries on the Pacific coast. However, he afterward again became a resident of Peoria county and his death occurred in Washington, D. C, whither he had gone to see about a patent in which he was interested. Death came to him very suddenly. His son, Albertus Y. Bartholomew, made farming his life work.

On the old homestead farm J. B. Bartholomew was reared and his first position was with the Avery's, then in Galesburg. In 1882 the company moved its plant to Peoria and Mr. Bartholomew thus became a factor in the industrial circles of this city. The faithfulness and capability which he displayed in his original position with the firm led to his promotion. He ceased team driving to enter the assembly shop where the machines were put together and he became thoroughly acquainted with the trade in all the different mechanical phases of the business. He then went upon the road as an expert demonstrator and afterward joined the sales force. Each different connection brought him larger duties and broader experience, calling forth his latent powers and energies. He afterward established a branch for the company at Des Moines, Iowa, where he resided for ten years or from 1882 until 1892. In the fall of the latter year he returned to Peoria to take charge of the manufacturing and designing department and later he was elected to the vice presidency of the company and also became a member of its board of directors. He succeeded to the presidency on the death of C. M. Avery and has since been at the head of a business which is the foremost industrial enterprise of Peoria, employing thirteen hundred workmen.

The company has not only followed a progressive lead but has been foremost in the work of advancement in the line of agricultural implement manufacture. Mr. Bartholomew's long experience has made him thoroughly acquainted with every phase of the business and its success is attributable in large measure to his enterprise and efforts. At the present time he is bending his energies to executive control and administrative direction and the great concern of which he is the head has been so carefully systematized that the business runs on with the smoothness of clock work. Of course there are problems, often most intricate ones, arising again and again, but the keen sagacity and discernment and the long experience of Mr. Bartholomew have enabled him to find ready solution for these.

Although at the head of the foremost manufacturing industry of the city, this does not comprise the scope of Mr. Bartholomew's activity. He is also the president of the Bartholomew Company, a large Peoria concern engaged in the manufacture of the Glide automobile. This was organized in 1892 to take over a small personal business which had been developed by Mr. Bartholomew in Des Moines - the manufacture of peanut roasters, which the company still continues, although in later years their largest output has been the automobile. The business was removed to Peoria in 1900 and Mr. Bartholomew's son, A. Y. Bartholomew, is now vice president of the company. The father is also a director of the Merchants National Bank of Peoria. One of the recent honors, which has brought Mr. Bartholomew wide acquaintance throughout the nation, was that of president of the National Implement and Vehicle show, which was held in Peoria September 27 to October 5. The event was an extremely successful one, promoting the interests of trade and advancing an understanding among manufacturers and business men that is of untold value.
On the 2d of July, 1884, occurred the marriage of Mr. Bartholomew and Miss Luella Moore, who was born in Eureka, Illinois. They became the parents of four children : A. Y., vice president of the Bartholomew Company ; Ethel, the wife of Francis W. Gray; Margaret; and John B. Mr. Bartholomew belongs to the Creve Coeur Club, the Country Club and the Illinois Valley Yacht Club and was president of the first named when they completed their new building. He was also vice president and one of the directors when the enterprise was undertaken. His life history is another proof of the fact that there is no success in life without effort. Not seeking honor but simply endeavoring to do his duty, honors have come to him and prosperity has followed his undertakings.
