bullet  General Notes:

Was born at Weyler, under Steinsberg, near Sinsheim, in the Rhenish Palatinate, (now in Baden), September 3, 1719, and died in York, Pa., in 1804. He was naturalized in Philadelphia, September 24, 1762. (See Rudolph). The christian name of his wife was Anna Margaretha. He resided on the plantation of 326 1/2 acres which his father Caspar acquired by occupation and improvement, in 1728, and which was later patented to him, Bernhard. This land is now owned by Daniel Kohr and sons, and others, (ed note, entry dated 1898) and is distant about one and a half miles Northeast of York. In prospecting this section the attention of Bernhard and his father were arrested by the magnificent timber, the trees being as straight as arrows and of extraordinary height and circumference. Here Bernhard determined to settle, and immediately began the construction of the settler's log-house. What was one hundred and sixty-seven years ago an unbroken forest is now a veritable garden. ...Bernhard later in life, and prior to 1780 purchased the lot and house, No. 172, (65 feet), on the North side of West Philadelphia street, York, now owned by J. W. Buckingham, and Mrs. John Palmtag, (ed note, entry dated 1898) and in which he died in 1804, aged 85 years. 28

A deed for 385 acres thereof was executed by Thomas Penn to Caspar Spengler, October 30, 1736, the main consideration being settlement and improvements. Bernhard Spengler, a son of Caspar, December 1st, 1767, acquired the warrant and title to the northern section of 326 1/2 acres.The southern portion, bisected by the "Great Road," was conducted by Caspar in conjunction with his youngest son, Philip Caspar Spengler. 13
