Original on file in the interior department at Harrisburg, under the title of Rudolph Spengler, (Son of Caspar and Jonas' brother).



From, Edward W. Spangler, The Annals of the Families of Caspar, Henry, Baltzer and George Spengler, York, Pennsylvania: The York Daily Publishing Co., 1896., p68.

From Edward W. Spangler , in the book The Annals of the Families of Caspar, Henry, Baltzer and George Spengler published 1896:

He and his brother, Rudolph, were located prior to 1738, by their father on a tract of land supposed to measure "six hundred acres," seven miles west of Codorus Creek, (York did not then exist,) on the Little Codorus Creek, on the "Conococheague Road" now the York and Gettysburg Turnpike, all then in the County of Lancaster.

On an accurate survey made of the same in 1765 in pursuance of a second warrant issued by the Surveyor General in 1763, this tract measured seven hundred and nineteen acres and allowance, of which 363 acres and 154 perches, western portion, were patented to Rudolph Spengler, in trust for the wife and children of Jonas, then deceased. A copy of the original warrant of October 16th, 1738, issued by Thomas Penn, and on file in the interior department at Harrisburg, will be found under the title of Rudolph Spengler, (Son of Caspar).

This entire tract was then a dense forest, and as late as 1769 only 15 acres of the tract was in grain. His widow was then assessed 3 horses, 2 cows and 2 sheep. The large springs upon it were favorite places for the wigwams of the Indians, and around one of which, as late as thirty years ago, arrow heads and tomahawks were annually ploughed up in great abundance.

Patents to them respectively were issued for the same by Thomas Penn, and Richard Penn, through John Penn, true and Absolute Proprietors and Governors in Chief of the Province of Pennsylvania, dated the 14th day of October, 1767, the 7th year of the Reign of King George the Third over Great Britain, etc., and the 50th year of the said Proprietors' Government.

The deed is endorsed, "Patent Rudolph Spengler, Spenglesberg, York county." This 356 tract was bounded by lands of Jacob Wiest, John Myers, Philip Crist, John Appleman, and the said heirs of Jonas Spengler, deceased. The consideration for this patent to Rudolph was the payment of 50 pounds, 8 shillings lawful money of Pennsylvania, and the yearly Quit Rent of one half penny sterling for every acre thereof, if the same thereof is coin current according as the exchange shall be between said Province and the City of London.

The grant was in "free and common socage by fealty in lieu of all other services, and included all the Mines, Minerals, Quarries, Marshes, Savannahs, Swamps, Cripples, Woods, Underwoods, Trees, Timbers, Ways, Waters, Watercourses, Liberties, Profits, Commodities, Advantages, Hereditaments, and Appurtenances, whatsoever thereto belonging. Three full and clear fifths parts of all the Royal Mines, free from all deductions and reprisals, for digging and refining the same and also one fifth part of the ore of all other mines delivered at the Pitts Mouth only excepted and hereby reserved." 3
