Notes for Jacob Phlegar
BIRTH: surmised to be about 1733/4 // a Family Group Record from LDS surmised 17331 // Betty Newlander's
Pedigree Chart (loose papers) says place of birth was Lancaster Co.
MISC: David Stephenson has this Jacob listed on p. 17 as the son of Georg Pflieger the immigrant but gives
mother's name as "Maria"--same name he gave under the notes on the immigrant. Don't know where he is getting
this name for the Immigrant mother's name of Eve. >>David's reply 29 Jan 1995: "[Maria] came from my greataunt's
notes [Margaret Pflieger, early family historian]. I don't know how she arrived at the name but she apparently
felt strongly this was correct. She used the reference several times in her synopsis of the York Pfliegers and in her
poetry portraying the immigration and early life in the York area."
MISC: if all the baptisms in doc 22, suggesting the male sponsor was Jacob before he was married, are any indication,
Jacob might have been one of the eligible bachelors around town in his day
MARRIAGE: Bates & Wright Vol. 1 p. 1252 ; again in Bates & Wright Vol. 3, p. 125 in the records of the Canadochly
Union Church, Lower Windsor Twp, York Co. 3 ; again4 --all give Maria Catharine Traub as his bride's name.
// from Jack Lines Feb 1996: Rev. John Samuel Schwerdfegger married this couple
WIFE: name Catherine given on unidentified document in York Township, 1788. She was apparently dead by the
year Jacob died, 1800. (Stphnsn p. 17)
PROPERTY: A warrant for 283 acres 124 perches of land in York and Codorus Twps adjoining land of Frederick
Pflieger was granted to Jacob 19 Dec 1766; and another warrant for 42 acres 65 perches in Codorus Twp was
granted to him July 31, 1772. The lands were surveyed to him and out of these lands he and his wife (both signing
by mark) surveyed 87 acres 68 perches to George Pflieger, his eldest son, given by deed in Codorus Twp 20 May
1788, recorded in Record Book 2E, pg 367. This conveyance was taken by George in full for his share of his father's
estate as is evidenced by a release executed by George to his father 17 May 1794. Record Book 2K.96.
(from Stephenson 29 Jan 1995 letter)
PROPERTY: from Stephenson, p. 17--A warrant for 283 acres 124 perches of land and allowances in York and Codorus
Townships adjoining land of Frederick Pflieger was granted to him 19 December 1766, and another warrant
for 42 acres 65 perches in Codorus Township was granted to Jacob 31 July 1772. Out of this property, Jacob and his
wife Catharine conveyed 87 acres 69 perches to George Pflieger, his eldest son, listed as a resident of Codorus
Twnshp by deed dated May 20 1788--recorded in Record Book 2E, pg 367. This land was apparently George's full
share Jacob's (his father) estate and noted by George on 17 May 1794, Record Book 2K.96.
MATHEMATICS: suggest that by the birth of Anna Marie, 1777, the mother and father have been married 22 years
(added to age 20 = age 42) The mother is having some late children here because two more follow, the last not born
until 1782. Is there another Jacob?? Son Jacob of Jacob and Marie Traub would be 30 yrs old in 1782--one possibility.
Another Jacob unaccounted for is the son of George Frederick and Maria M. Kieffer--that Jacob born 1757.
When looking at the church records in Bates & Wright Vol 22 , there may be more substantiation for an intermediate
generation of John Jacob and wife Maria Catharine being not the older generation of John Jacob, b. abt 1732, but
instead the son of that man, John Jacob who was born 1758, e.g., when Eva Fluger and her husband Samuel Weiser
have their son baptized in 1792, the sponsors are the John Jacob and Maria Catharine in question. I will admit that
the grandparents could be the sponsors but so could the brother of Eva Fluger, and these mathematics keep rearing
their ugly heads.
ACTIVITIES: probably the Jacob Pfluger and wife Catarina in the baptism of Johann Jacob Alt, son of Jacob and
Elisabetha Margareta (Schneider) Alt b. 25 Feb 1767; bapt Palm Sunday at Friedensall (Schuster's White) Lutheran
Church, Springfield Twp, York Co.3 --also note the acquaintance of Michael Hess and Henry Alt
ACTIVITIES: probably baptismal sponsor along with wife called "Catharina" for Catharina, daughter of Abraham
and Christina Kieffer.3 --a Kieffer connection
DEATH: died intestate shortly before 17 Apr 1800 (Stephenson)--letters of administration granted to son Bernhard
[Barnhart] and to Martin Ebert, both were bonded by Simon Minnich and Samuel Weiser sureties.
DEATH: noted in a petition to the Orphan's Court of York County on 30 Sept 1800, Docket No. 140: Hans Jacob,
the second oldest son, stated that his father had been dead for five months--source is same pg Stephenson DEATH:
418 FGS by Eula Willis Carter gave place of birth and death as Lancaster Co, Penn.
WILL: Paup, Index5 lists Jacob probate in 1800--need to see this record; Orphan's Court Docket 140 stated (by
Jacob) that his father died intestate. --see Prim Docs
