I find only two other Omans at this time in the area, both in Council Bluffs, during the 1850 census. Eliza Oman, age 35, was perhaps a relative since Perry named a daughter Eliza, and next door to her was George Oman, who was a leader of a group of Latter Day Saints who traveled on to Utah.

Oman family history mentioned in the book "The Howard Leytham Stoker Von Dollen Family Histories," FHL 929.273 H833a, by Doris Lewis, 2017 So. 80th Ave., Omaha, Nebraska, 68124, pp. 107+; has three of photos of Hannah Smith - one taken just after her marriage with George Graybill, one with her second husband, James Sexton, taken during the Civil War, and one as an older woman with three generations of descendants.

1. See notes of father John Smith for extensive biography on entire family including this individual and their spouses.

2. The book "Mormon Redress Petitions, Documents of the 1833-1838 Missouri Conflict," edited by Clark V. Johnson, contains a copy of the "Scroll Petition" dated 28 Nov 1843 at Nauvoo, IL addressed to the U.S. Congress by members of the LDS Church who had property destroyed by Missouri mobs in the 1830's. Included with over a couple thousand signatures are those of Jno. and Sarah Smith and some of his children from his first wife who was deceased at the time of the petition: Hannah, Elizabeth, Stephen. Jos., and Rhoda A.

3. Mentioned in granddaughter Julia Stoker's biography per two sources: and FHL book 977.747-H2n: "History of Harrison County, Iowa," 1891, pp. 959, 960: "Miss Julia Stoker - The biographies of successful women are unusual in works of this character, yet there are, in every community, a few women, who, by virtue of their superior ability and keen business judgement, are entitled to recognition far beyond that usually accorded to the sterner sex. But it is altogether extraordinary to find a young woman who has shown such wonderful executive ability as Miss Julia Stoker, a successful capitalist and the manager of her deceased father's great estate. Miss Julia Stoker was born on August 9, 1890, in Washington township, Harrison county, Iowa, the daughter of Orsan and Elizabeth (Omen) Stoker. They were the parents of ten children, eight of whom are living. Orsan Stoker was born on January 25, 1843, in Hancock county, Illinois, the son of Ellen and Margaret (Judd) Stoker. Orsan Stoker came to Harrison county, Iowa, in 1862, and bought land in Washington township. He made improvements upon this land, among which was a log cabin, sixteen feet square and here he and his family lived a few years, when the log cabin was replaced by a better house. He was an extensive breeder of Poland China hogs and Shorthorn cattle. Throughout his life, he was an energetic farmer and stockman. He built a splendid house near the town of Yorkshire, Iowa, later in life, and at the time of his death in 1908, owned nine hundred and seventy-four acres in Harrison and Pottawattamie counties. He was a member of the church of Latter-Day Saints and the Masonic fraternity. Orsan Stoker's wife, the mother of Miss Julia, was born in 1847, in Holt county, Missouri, the daughter of Perry [Omen] and Hannah (Smith) Graybill, the latter of whom was married three times [Perry being first husband]. She is now living on the old home place. Julia Stoker attended the eight grades of the Yorkshire school and has always remained on the home farm. She now manages all of her mother's interests and looks after all her affairs. Miss Stoker owns one hundred and fifty-seven acres of land, near Persia, in Washington township. She is very much in love with the work that has fallen to her lot to perform and is very competent for this work. She is a member of the church of Latter-Day Saints, well known in the community where she lives, and widely admired for her many sterling qualities."

4. The following partial quote is included in the biography of Stephen Smith, brother of this individual, per FHL film 934962, items 3 and 4, "History of Pottawattamie County, Iowa," by Field and Reed, 1907, pp. 1066-1067 [see notes for Stephen Smith in this database for full quotation]: "Stephen Smith, now living retired but still residing on his farm on section 27, Grove township, came to Pottawattamie county about the 1st of November, 1847. On this day he arrived in Council Bluffs, where he spent the winter. In the following April his father arrived in Macedonia township, bringing his family with him, and there he built the first house within what is now the borders of the township. John Smith, the father, resided there for eight years or more, and in the fall of 1853 or 1854 became a resident of Grove township, settling on section 8, where he continued to reside until his death occurred, in 1870, when he was 72 years of age... His birth had occurred in North Carolina and he had resided for some time in Indiana prior to coming to Iowa. The wife, who bore the maiden name of Elizabeth Martha Koonts, was born in Indiana, and from that state they removed to Adams county, Illinois, where the death of Mrs. Smith occurred, in 1840. Stephen Smith was born in Henry county, Indiana, January 28, 1836. His father wedded a second time, having wedded Miss Sarah Winegar in Adams county, Illinois, after losing his first wife. She accompanied her husband to Pottawattamie county and died here in 1882 [error; should be 1880]. By the two marriages there were seven sons and six daughters. Those of the family who came to Pottawattamie county were: Mary, Patience, Hannah, Elizabeth, Lydia, Rhoda [error: Lydia Rhoda is one individual and not two], Anna, Stephen, Joseph, Hiram, Carlos and Abraham. [Note: I believe Anna being included in this list to be an error in that it appears she died in Indiana as an infant.] Two brothers of the family died in early Childhood. Of the children Stephen, Lydia, and Abraham are still living, the sister being a resident of Cheyenne county, Kansas, while the brother makes his home in northwestern Nebraska. Stephen Smith was eleven years of age when he came with his father to Pottawattamie county..."

5. The book "The Howard Leytham Stoker Von Dollen Family Histories," FHL 929.273 H833a, by Doris Lewis, 2017 So. 80th Ave., Omaha, Nebraska, 68124, pp. 90-91: "Cooking for such a large family presented its problems. Over a dozen loaves of bread were made at one time, and a half dozen pies. Hannah commented later in life, she never wanted to make another pie."

6. Oman family history mentioned in the book "The Howard Leytham Stoker Von Dollen Family Histories," FHL 929.273 H833a, by Doris Lewis, 2017 So. 80th Ave., Omaha, Nebraska, 68124, pp. 107+, has the following biographies of Orson Stoker, son of Eller and Margaret (Judd) Stoker, who married Elizabeth Oman: "Orson... grew up on the family farm in Garner Township. In 1863, when 20 years old, he bought government land at $7.00 an acre in Harrison County, Washington Township, section 32. Andrew Graybill, William Graybill, William Spears and Orson bought 320 acres in one body and helped one another clear the land. In 1867, he built a log house where he brought his new bride, Betty Oman, the following January. The oldest five children were born in this log house on Mosquito Creek, and Jess commented later it had quite a number of cracks, requiring one to shake the snow off of the quilts in the morning if it had snowed in the night. In 1879, Orson built the big family home just west of the cabin. The road at this time ran east and west and the house stood east of the present Highway 64 and across the road from William Darrington's home now. Because of his many daughters and numerous men on the premises, the second story was separated into male and female sleeping quarters by a solid wall, with separate stairways from each side. Because of the many out buildings, elevators and granaries, strangers often stopped at the farm thinking they had reached Yorkshire. Orson owned more than 1000 acres in Harrison County when he died in 1908 from an infectious carbuncle on the neck. He had diabetes, as did many of his children. Elizabeth Massie Oman, or Omen, as it is sometimes spelled, was born in Lexington, Lafayette County, Missouri, in 1847, the first child born to Perry and Hannah Oman. A number of babies born to Latter Day Saint parents were born in Lafayette County, so there was probably a pocket of church members there. Two years later Betty's younger sister was born in Holt County, Mo. The Missouri census, taken in Lafayette County on August 26th, 1850, lists Perry as 26 years old, born in Illinois and a farmer by occupation. Hannah was 22, Elizabeth 3 ½ and Eliza ½. In the summer of 1851, the family moved to Pottawattamie County, Iowa, where Perry soon died. He may be buried in the old Mormon Cemetery, now Fairview in Council Bluffs, of the Stoker-Graybill Cemetery east of the Bluffs, or in Wheeler's Grove, where many Smiths were living, including Hannah's father, in a large Mormon community. I find only two other Omans at this time in the area, both in Council Bluffs, during the 1850 census. Eliza Oman, age 35, was perhaps a relative since Perry named a daughter Eliza, and next door to her was George Oman, who was a leader of a group of Latter Day Saints who traveled on to Utah. Betty's younger sister Eliza Annette was called 'Net.' When Net was 16 she met George Tucker at a dance in Council Bluffs, and they were married three weeks later. The Tucker family had come to Council Bluffs, then called Kanesville, in 1849. The first night of arrival they camped outside of town and the father was killed trying to stop house thieves from stealing the horses. The mother and a younger brother contacted smallpox later and died, leaving George and a sister, orphans. In 1861, when 17, George volunteered in the Fourth Iowa Infantry, Company B. He served in the following battles: Pea Ridge, Chick Bayou, Arkansas Post, Jackson, Champion Hill, Vicksburg, Big Black River, Dalton, Taylor's Ridge, Mission Ridge, Columbia River, Bentonville, the Atlanta campaign, the march to the sea, and the campaign that ended in Johnston's surrender. After the war he delivered oxen and wagons to Denver, returning with cattle. Returning from such a drive in the midst of a violent snow storm, he found a dance in progress in Council Bluffs. Dances had been discontinued during the war years, which made one quite an event after the war. George went to the dance and met Net. They never had children but were dear aunt and uncle to all of Orson and Betty's children. They lived their entire married life within a few miles of Neola. In the early years of marriage they lived in a log cabin on Mosquito Creek near Yorkshire, the last few years they lived in Neola, where George was the banker. The Stoker look is a familiar phrase to us who have it, but I was surprised to find that photographs show it was the Smith women who had it. Maybe it is really a Smith look, or an Eller look, of a Koons look, but wherever it came from, Grandma Betty Stoker had it." More on Orson Children: "Orson used to bring home bolts of material, so each family member had a dress or a shirt made out of the same material. He also brought barrels of clams and my grandmother said as she walked in the smoke house she could hear hundreds of clams clicking shut when the light hit. They were all excellent cooks, good eaters, hard workers, but would drop everything for a good ridge game. They had as much fun at 70 as at 17. When the grandchildren were ready for high school, which is in Neola, they moved in with Grandma Stoker, who had moved to Neola in her later years. There were times when she had as many as six teenagers boarding with her..." [The book lists 10 children born of this couple with numerous photographs. Three of the photos are especially noteworthy since they are of Hannah Smith - one taken just after her marriage with George Graybill, one with her second husband, James Sexton, taken during the Civil War, and one as an older woman with three generations of descendants.]

7. Her family with James Sexton is remarked upon in he book "The Howard Leytham Stoker Von Dollen Family Histories," FHL 929.273 H833a, by Doris Lewis, 2017 So. 80th Ave., Omaha, Nebraska, 68124, pp. 110-111: "James Sexton was born in Ireland, came to America when nine years of age. Hannah was a widow with two children when they married; after James' death during the Civil War, she was again a widow, with six children [four from James]:
1. Arminta Sexton, b. 7 Sep 1856 at Pottawattamie Co., IA; d. 20 Apr 1945; m. John W. Downs.
2. Emily Sexton, b. Pott. Co., m. Willis Downs.
3. John Sexton, m. Fannie Downs.
4. James Sexton, b. Eva Heath."
FHL book 929.273 P684pn: "Graybill/Stoker/Eller/Smith/Koons/Pitt Connections," by Norman E. 'Gene' Pitt, 1996, pp. 125-140 adds a fifth child between John and James by the name of George. Also notes that John was known as John "Jack" and Arminta is "M. Araminta." The three oldest married into the Downs family: John, Willis and Fannie respectively.

8. FHL Book 929.273EL54h "George Michael Eller and Descendants of His in America," compiled by James W. Hook, 1957, also on FHL film 896571, item 2, p. 150: Notes children of first marriage to Mr. Oman or Omen:
Nettie Oman (or Omen) m. George Tucker.
Betty Oman (or Omen) m. O. Stoker.
Children of second marriage:
Elizabeth Sexton, aged 13 in 1860, child prob. of first marriage.
Eliza Sexton, aged 11 in the 1860 census. Same prob. as Jeannette shown in family records.
M. (probably Araminta) Sexton, aged 6 in 1860. She prob. married John Downs.
Emily Sexton, aged 4 in 1860.
John (Jack) Sexton, aged 2 in 1860.
George Sexton, aged 2 mo. in 1860.
James Sexton."

9. FHL book 929.273 P684pn: "Graybill/Stoker/Eller/Smith/Koons/Pitt Connections," by Norman E. 'Gene' Pitt, 1996, pp. 72-75, extensive downline of this family is in the book: "George Washington Graybill, b. 25/26 Jun 1821, Bloomfield Twp., Jackson Co., OH; d. 5 Mar 1900, Pottawattamie Co., IA; md. (1) 1841, Bloomfield Twp., Jackson Co., IN to Mary Smith; md. (2) 1862 to Hannah Smith... Mary Smith was b. 16 Sep 1823, Henry Co., IN; d. Feb 1860, Pottawattamie Co., IA. Mary and Hannah were sisters. Mary died just 3 weeks after Lydia was born. Hannah was b. 1828, Wayne co., IN; d. 16 Feb 1903, Underwood, Potta. Co., IA; bur. Potta. Co., IA. Mary's sisters and various other relatives were living in the same county. George was 16 when his family left Ohio for Missouri. He was living in Kane Twp., Potta. Co., IA in 1870. George's and Mary's children were Hannah, Brigham Young, George Henry, Polly Purley, John 'Jack', Isaiah, Mattie 'Massie', Sarah, Catherine and Lydia. George's and Hannah's children were Julia Ann, Samuel and Zenis." [Note there are many mistakes with this author's report including both marriage dates and places as well as birth and death dates for Hannah.

10. A partial quote from the book "Our Stoker Family Histories 1731-1881," Vol. II, comp. and ed. by Elayne Stoker, 2004, printed by Stevenson's Genealogy Center, Provo, UT, from an article entitled: "Polly Stoker":
"Vivian Graybill, of Independence, Missouri, has worked on the Graybill genealogy for many years and since he plans to publish a book with a great amount of detailed information I will not list the names of their complete families. I will note the names of Michael and Polly's children and how they relate to other families in this book. I do have most family names if anyone wants to check it. [Kerry's note: the author lists each child and grandchild of Polly. See her file for the complete listing. I include only the immediate family in this individual's note.]
"George Washington Graybill, b. 6/25/1821, Jackson Co., Ohio. m. Mary Smith. Mary died Feb. 16, 1860, when 35 years of age.

m. (2) Hannah Smith Oman Sexton, the twice widowed sister to Mary. Hannah had two children by Perry Oman, one my great grandmother, and four children by James Sexton. These families are listed in the Smith section. She had three children after this marriage. Cooking for such a large family presented its problems. Over a dozen loaves of bread were made at one time, and a half dozen pies. Hannah commented later in life, she never wanted to make another pie. Hannah and George lived by Underwood and they are both buried in the cemetery west of town.

2. The book "The Howard Leytham Stoker Von Dollen Family Histories," FHL 929.273 H833a, by Doris Lewis, 2017 So. 80th Ave., Omaha, Nebraska, 68124, p. 101, uses a variant dates of 16 Sep 1827 at Wayne Co., IN and death date of 16 Feb 1903 at Underwood, IN. Even though Doris is a descendant of Hannah, neither date jives with the tombstone. I use the tombstone since Doris' dates are undocumented. As far as Wayne County, IN as birthplace, it is as likely as Henry Co., IN which I use based upon the biography of her father John Smith [quoted in his notes] - he lived in Henry Co. at about this time. Neither birthplace location is documented and is subject to change based on further research.

1. Per FHL book 977.771 V2p" Pottawattamie Co., IA Early Marriages 1848-1869": "Geo. W. Graybill and Hannah Sexton, 15 Feb 1863." Also confirmed because of children's ages in 1880 census.

2. Per 18 May 2002 database "doigk," first marriage was to Perry Oman with two children born [Nettie Oman and Betty Oman]. Second marriage was to James Sexton with 7 children [Elizabeth, Eliza, M.. Emily, John, George, James]. Geo. Graybill was 3rd marriage. According to Oman/Smith descendant Doris Lewis in her book "The Howard Leytham Stoker Von Dollen Family Histories," FHL 929.273 H833a, p. 101, Perry Oman died in 1851 in Pottawattamie Co., IA. Betty Oman's full name was Elizabeth Massie Oman and she married Orson Hyde Stoker; Doris Lewis gives an extensive downline of Orson and Betty with many family photos as well.

3. Mentioned in the FHL book 929.273 P684pn: "Graybill/Stoker/Eller/Smith/Koons/Pitt Connections," by Norman E. 'Gene' Pitt, 1996, pp. 125-140, mentions that James came to America at age 9 from Ireland and that he died during the Civil War.

In March 1327 Margery, widow of Robert Lever, arraigned an assize of novel disseisin against Ralph de Camoys, Elizabeth his wife, and their son, Hugh, for a tenement in Westbury. The said Ralph, Elizabeth, and Hugh proferred a charter of the late king whereby they asserted they held the said tenement; however, it was found by the tenor of the assize that the defendants had disseised the said Margery of the manor of Westbury long before the making of the king's charter. In 1327 he sued John de Saint John regarding a debt. In 1328 he and Edmund, Earl of Kent, were sued by Eve Dautry, wife of Edward de Saint John, for dower in Broadwater, Trotton, Woolavington, Petworth, etc., Sussex.

"ISABEL DE BEAUCHAMP, married (1st) PATRICK DE CHAWORTH, Knt. [see CHAWORTH 7], of Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire, Wales, East Garston and North Standen (in Hungerford), Berkshire, Kempsford, Gloucestershire, King's Somborne, Hampshire, Stoke Bruerne, Northamptonshire, Berwick St. James and Standon Chaworth, Wiltshire, etc., younger son of Patrick de Chaworth, Knt., of Kempsford, Gloucestershire, North Standen (in Hungerford), Berkshire, King's Sombome, Hampshire, Stoke Brueme, Northamptonshire, etc., by Hawise, daughter and heiress of Thomas de London, of Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire, Ogmore, Glamorgan, East Garston, Berkshire, and Hannington, Wiltshire [see CHAWORTH 6 for his ancestry]. He was born about 1254 (aged 24 in 1278). Isabel had the manor of Chedworth, Gloucestershire in free marriage. They had one daughter, Maud. In 1275-6 he arraigned an assize of novel disseisin against Nicholas Attewode and others touching a tenement in Weston Chaurz, Hampshire. In 1276 he witnessed a deed of his older brother, Pain de Chaworth, to Aaron son of Vives, a Jew. He was Captain of the king's munition in Wales in 1277. Sometime during the period, c.1278-82, Patrick witnessed a charter of Guy de Bryan to the burgesses of Laugharne, Carmarthenshire, Wales. He was heir in 1279 to his older brother, Pain de Chaworth, Knt. In 1279-80 Walter atte Berewe arraigned an assize of novel disseisin against Patrick de Chaworth and others touching a tenement in Etloe, Gloucestershire. In 1280-1 the king granted murage to the bailiffs and men of Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire for a term of five years at the instance of Patrick de Chaworth their lord. Patrick fought in Wales in 1282. On 6 June 1283, he confirmed the gift of his brother, Pain de Chaworth, to Godstow Abbey, which provided for the anniversaries of the obits of their mother, Hawise, and grandmother, Eve. SIR PATRICK DE CHAWORTH died testate shortly before 7 July 1283. His widow, Isabel, married (2nd) between 10 Sept. 1285 (record of Highworth Hundred Rolls) and 27 Jan. 1287 (date of fine for marrying without license) HUGH LE DESPENSER, Knt., of Loughborough, Arnesby, Barrow, Beaumanor, and Hugglescote (in Ibstock), Leicestershire, Ryhall, Rutlandshire, Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, Maplederwell, Hampshire, Woking, Surrey, Broad Town (then in Cliff-Pippard), Eastern (in Wootton Basset), Wootton Basset, Wiltshire, Barrowby, Hillam, Parlington, and Shippen [Ho], Yorkshire, etc., Justice of the Forest south of Trent, 1297-1307, 1308-11, 1312-15, 1324-6, Privy Councillor, 1297, Warden of the Coasts south of Trent, 1303, Constable of Devizes, Marlborough, Odiham, St. Briavel's, and Striguil Castles, son and heir of Hugh le Despenser, Knt., of Loughborough, Leicestershire, Justiciar of England, by Aline (or Aveline), daughter and heiress of Philip Basset, Knt., Justiciar of England.

[2nd Lord Despenser], and Philip, Knt., and four daughters, Aline (wife of Edward Burnell, Knt., Lord Burnell), Isabel, Margaret, and Elizabeth. He was heir in 1275 to his cousin, John le Despenser, by which he inherited the manor of Arnesby, Leicestershire. A letter of William de Valence to John de Kirkby indicates that the Queen exacted 1,000 marks from Hugh because of his marriage. In Jan. 1285 the king took the manor of Bollington, Cheshire because Hugh took emends of ale without warrant. In 1286 and again in 1287, he appointed attorneys, he then going beyond seas. He released all right to his lands and tenements in Soham, Cambridgeshire and Bollington in Macclesfield, Cheshire to the king in 1286-7. He was with the king in Gascony in 1287. In 1289 he was going beyond seas with Roger le Bigod, Earl of Norfolk. He presented to the churches of Cossington, Leicestershire, 1289, Stoke Brueme, Northamptonshire, 1292, 1304, and Winterbourne Houghton, Dorset, 1316, 1317. In 1292 he was granted a weekly market and year fair at Arnesby, Leicestershire. In 1293 he had license to enclosed 30 acres of wood adjoining his park at Fastern (in Wootton Basset), Wiltshire. In 1293-4 he claimed to have view of frankpledge in his manor of Barrowby, Hillam, Parlington, and Shippen [Ho], Yorkshire, and that he and his men were free from suits of counties, hundreds/wapentakes/ridings, and from sheriff's aid and murdrum and view of frankpledge. He was appointed an envoy to treat with the King of the Romans in 1294. He was summoned to Parliament from 24 June 1295 to 14 March 1321/2, by writs directed Hugoni le Despenser, whereby he is held to have become Lord Despenser. In 1295 he was going beyond seas on the king's service. The following year he was going beyond seas on an embassy for the king. In 1297 he was granted 20 oaks fit for timber by the king. The same year he took part in the expedition to Flanders. In 1297 he demised the manor of Arnesby, Leicestershire to two tenants for a term of seven years. In 1298 Maud le Barber of Garscherch testified in London court that Saer le Barber said that Sir Hugh le Despenser "kept more robbers with him than any man in England." In 1299 he was granted the manors of Chelworth and Somerford, Wiltshire, together with the bailiwick of the Forest of Braydon, by his kinsman, Robert de Kaynes (or Kaignes). He was present at the Siege of Caerlaverock in 1300. In 1300 he was going to the court of Rome on the king's special affairs. In 1301 Ralph Pipard granted him the manor of Great Haseley, Oxfordshire. In 1302 Robert de Kaynes, Knt. conveyed to him the manors of Tarrant Keyneston, Dorset and two parts of the manor of Newentone, Wales, together with the reversion of the manors of Dodford, Northamptonshire, Oxhill, Warwickshire, Coombe Keynes, Wiltshire, and a third part of Newentone, Wales. He took part in the negotiations with France which preceded the peace of 1303. In 1305 he was sent as Joint Ambassador to Pope Clement V at Lyons, where he obtained a bull absolving the king from the oaths which he had taken to his people. In Feb. 1306 Hugh received a papal indult to have a portable altar. His wife, Isabel, died shortly before 30 May 1306. At the Coronation of King Edward II in 1308, he carried part of the royal insignia. In the quarrel about Peter de Gavaston in 1308, Hugh alone sided with the king against the barons. He was regarded as a deserter from the common cause, and the parliament which met at Northampton procured his dismissal from the king's council. His disgrace was not of long duration; he received the castles of Devizes and Marlborough, and became the chief adviser of the king. On the death of Gavaston in 1312, he became the chief man of the court party, and encouraged the king to form plans of revenge against the barons. He was present at the Battle of Bannockburn 24 June 1314, and accompanied the king in his flight to Dunbar, and thence by sea to Berwick. About this time his son, Sir Hugh le Despenser, joined the king's side. He was appointed Ambassador to Pope John XXII in 1319, and Joint Ambassador to the Pope in 1320. In May and June 1321 the barons of the Welsh Marches and their adherents ravaged the lands of the younger Despenser in Wales and those of the elder throughout the country. In August of that year both Despensers were accused in Parliament, chiefly on account of the son's misconduct, of many misdeeds, including appropriating royal power to themselves, counselling the King evilly, and replacing good ministers by bad ones. They were then disinherited and exiled from the realm. The elder Hugh accordingly retired to the Continent. The sentence on the Despensers was pronounced unlawful at a provincial council of the clergy about 1 Jan. 1321/2. In March following, the elder Hugh accompanied the King against the contrariants, and was present at the judgment on Thomas, Earl of Lancaster. The proceedings against the Despensers were annulled and cancelled, and his lands restored 7 May 1322. He was created Earl of Winchester 10 May 1322, and granted £20 yearly from the issues of Hampshire, together with the Castle and manor of Brimpsfield, Gloucestershire, and the manors of Badgeworth and Syde, Gloucestershire, Ashton Giffard, Codford St. Peter, Sherrington, and Stapleford, Wiltshire (formerly belonging to John Giffard), as well as other lands formerly belonging to Thomas Mauduit, Henry le Tyeys, Warin de Lisle, and John de Kyngeston. The queen hated the Despensers, and when some difficulty arose in France, she gladly left the kingdom on an embassy to her brother, King Charles IV of France. When the queen landed in England with an armed force in Sept. 1326, she put out a proclamation against the Despensers. On the king's flight to Wales in October 1326, Earl Hugh was dispatched to defend Bristol, which, however, he at once surrendered on the arrival of the Queen. The next day, 27 October 1326, SIR HUGH LE DESPENSER, Earl of Winchester, was tried - without being allowed to speak in his own defence - condemned to death as a traitor, and hanged on the common gallows, all his honours forfeited. His head was sent to Winchester.

20 (Research):Anyone researching their ancestors in Shoshone County should be aware of the important connection between Shoshone County, Bonner County, Kootenai County, Spokane, WA and Rossland & Trail, B.C., Canada. To not look at these connections could mean missing your ancestor completely. Spokane, Rossland and Trail are all innerconnected to Shoshone County, particularly if your ancestor was in the mining industry. Miners came to Shoshone County from Rossland and Trail after the mines dried up in British Columbia. You can track your ancestors crossing the Canadian Border via films from the Mormon Library Family History Center, called the St Albans Border Crossing. If you suspect or know your was a miner, you can contact the Lei Roi Mining Museum in Rossland, B.C., to see if they have any records. Additionally, Spokane, WA was built by money from the Silver Valley Mining industry. Contact the Eastern Washington Genealogy Society in Spokane, WA to see if they have any information on your ancestor. Most miners made migrations through Bonner County, ID to get from Rossland to Shoshone, and many left Shoshone eventually to live in Kootenai County. The lesson here is to check all surrounding counties! Hurry, Edith Elizabeth (I908)

The 1880 census also shows Rosa's mothers name as Regina, but Rosa's marriage license says Rachel as do family members. Her last name of Rothenberger was given to me by family members, and Rosa's marriage license showed Lokenbargh. The 1900 census said that Rosa immigrated to the US 1860.

1. Research summary on the Hartwich family by Rose Green, a Stoker/Roemer descendant and excellent German researcher. Rose provided the following by email 26 Apr 2015:
"I read original German records. My husband is a German professor and we lived in Germany for a number of years, so I learned German. When I was working on the Roemers, I ran into a guy who was born in Birkenau. He isn't blood related to us, but a number of his family members married a number of ours, so we had common interests. He picked up a number of historical booklets for me from the city that had articles about our family in them. Yes, I could get the bare bones out of the church records, but it was so interesting to read about these people. Apparently Johannes Roemer was a tanner and also owned a mill (which is still there). He was quite well respected (a ton of people came to his funeral) and he had the mixed-religion marriage. When issues came up later in town with mixed-religion marriages, he was sort of held up as a standard of, well, he managed to do it, so it must be possible.
Schooling was compulsory from 1705(?). Joh. Michael Roemer who came to America was quite literate -- his signature on his will is in lovely perfect German script.
Joh. Michael Roemer and his wife Charlotta Amalia Hartwich were apparently the first people from Birkenau to emigrate to America.
Charlotta Amalia comes from a really interesting family. The earliest record we can find of her dad, Georg/Jurgen Andreas Hartwig/Hartwich, is that he was a lieutenant in Wolfenbüttel (then part of the country of Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel) in 1701. In 1703, Georg hired on as a Rittmeister [Cavalry Captain] for Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf, which was then part of Denmark, to command a regiment in this War of Spanish Succession. (It had something to do with Hapsburgs and was fought all across modern Germany.) He served until 1715, and then moved down to the Odenwald in southern Hessen, first to Michelstadt, then Reichelsheim, and finally Birkenau. In Reichelsheim, he was asked to move because he was training soldiers at a barracks and was apparently too violent with them.
His wife, Dorothea Sophia Schumacher -- I had someone search a series of printed marriage registers for northern Germany for me once, and they did not find a marriage for these people. I have read about a couple of Schumacher families that was sort of middle class in Schleswig-Holstein (i.e. a similar class that Georg was part of -- commissioned army officer, owning land, getting an education), but Schumacher is an awfully unspecial name ... I would really love to nail these people down and find out where they ultimately came from.
With a lack of personal records on him, I turned to the people he knew and where they came from, which is how I traced him to northern Germany. One such person is the Graf (Count) von Erbach. He was a student at the Ritterakademie (Knight's Academy) in Wolfenbüttel at the same time Georg was in town, and he was also I think in the cavalry in this same war. I think he's the one who got the Hartwigs [aka Hartwichs] down to Hessen after the war. His wife, the countess Charlotta Amalia von Erbach, was the godmother of Charlotta Amalia Hartwich (who married Johann Michael Roemer).
The other interesting northern connection is a professor by the name of Johann Justus Bode. He was from Bodenburg (again, up in the Wolfenbüttel area), the inventor of a traveller's sundial and a math and religion professor in Coburg, which is quite far away in today's Thuringen north of Nurnberg. He was the godfather for Charlotta's next older brother, Johann Justus. He didn't show up for the christening, but had a proxy stand in his stead. Why did these people know each other? I don't know.
When Georg came to Birkenau, he bought the Carlebach mill, which is also still standing. It had formerly belonged to the von Bonn family (Lords of Birkenau), but the Lord died and his sisters ended up with it, and they decided to sell it. The new Lord, by the way, was not Lutheran but Catholic, which apparently caused instant friction with the Lutheran Georg Hartwich. (That, or Hartwich's er..."friendly" personality.) (Remember, this was not horribly long after the 30 Year's War--a war between Catholic Hapsburgs and northern Lutherans, devastated the area.) Georg Hartwich started selling I think alcohol without a permit, or else was fishing without a permit, or something -- essentially, he was baiting the lord, who tried to fine him. Georg's oldest son, Georg Ernst Andreas, went to complain, and got to spend a night in jail to cool his heels over it. Things escalated until all the Hartwichs holed up in a mill in an armed standoff. Charlotta was nine. Things did eventually cool down, but let's just say the Hartwigs were not quiet, unassuming people. When Georg died, his funeral text was the hymn "Auf Christenmensch, auf auf zum Streif" (something about, good Christian men, to the fight! to the fight!). Appropriate, I think.
We have no record of the births of the other children, but judging from marriage records, they must have been born during this war. Here is who I've found:
1. Georg Ernst Andreas, b. about 1700? When living in Reichelsheim, he produced an illegitimate child, Johann Peter, with Anna Elisabetha Friedrich of Brensbach. They did not marry, and the child died at age 5. Georg Ernst suffered from depression ("melancholie") and actually shot himself inside the mill. The entry is quite sad; it explains that they knew he had had deep bouts of depression, but that lately he'd been doing better. It also said he was a law student, but I have not found his matriculation records. My husband says that university matriculation records often have gaps, though, and it's quite possible to be true, even if they didn't write him down. In any case, it was believable to the people at the time that he would be in college.
2. Nicholas Adolph married Maria Sophia Hedwich Mettenius in 1739. She was a widow from Rimbach. I found a couple of children for them.
3. Johanna Friderica married Johann Ernst von Hitzacker in 1730, had a child in 1732, and died in 1735. The von Hitzackers were from up north, and they were a lesser branch of the Welf dynasty that ruled Braunschweig-Wolfenbuttel. They were a big military family, with holdings in Ascherode and Luneburg. Their child's christening record reads: "The 22nd of October was born and the 24th baptized the son of well-born Mr. Johann Ernst von Hitzacker, royal Prussian officer, and his wife, Mrs. Johanna Friderica. The son, named Andreas Christoph Wilhelm Otto, was lifted from the holy baptism by [the father's] father-in-law, [cavalry] Captain Georg Andreas Hartwig, as well as Mr. Christoph von Hitzacker, royal Prussian Hauptmann (a military title of some kind of leader) in the Litauisch regiment and heir of Ascherode, and also by Mr. Otto von Hitzacker, heir and Lehnsherr of Lüneburg." Unfortunately, this family has since died out; I've been trying to pursue them and find out what their connection to the Hartwigs might be. And to find out whatever happened to husband and son after Johanna died.
4. There's a Peter Hartwich living in Birkenau in 1741. Hartwich is a northern name and I haven't found anything more about him other than I think paying taxes that year. Is he a relative? Possibly/probably. In 1741, Peter Hartwig contributed money to build a new gallows in Birkenau. (Source: Einwohnerlisten der Zent Birkenau 1439-1841, by Rudolf Kunz and Karl-Ludwig Schmitt, published in 1988) This is the only mention of this person I can find. There are no other Hartwigs in the area, so I assume he is part of our family.
5. Conrad Friedrich married Maria Cordula Walter in 1735 and had children. She was Catholic.
6. Franz Christian married a Maria Magdalena. I don't have a marriage date, but they had a child in 1742.
7. Anton Joachim. Anton's death record lists his age as 62 at time of death; however, this seems to be an estimate, since most entries give the age to the day. Since he was not from the area originally, it would be understandable that his age be only approximated. According to this estimate his birth would have occurred in 1710. He was confirmed in 1727 in Reichelsheim. Lutheran confirmations tend to occur between 12 and 14 years of age, which would move his birth year up to 1713-15, at the end of his father's military service, and in any case, probably predating the family's move to the Odenwald. Anton was a tanner's apprentice, according to his marriage record, but he also ran the family mill (Carlebachmuehle, today Firma Frank on Weinheimerstr. 6). This mill he ran until December 1742 (1200 Jahre Birkenau, p. 241). He also was in charge of the Donels or Nikolai-Muehle (mill) on Lindenstr. 3 jointly with Hans Michael Nikolai (1762 -- see p. 244 of 1200 Jahre Birkenau). Anton also shows up in historical archives because he tried to convince the pastor's daughter to elope with him when she was only 16. The pastor took out a restraining order on him. Later, he married Eva Katharina Romer, the sister of Joh. Michael Roemer. Their kids' christening records play hopscotch in the Catholic-Lutheran records, but Anton actually grew up to be quite respectable. He became a Lutheran church elder. Later, there was a case of a teenage girl whose family was Lutheran and she wanted to be Catholic, or Catholic and she wanted to be Lutheran. At any rate, she actually tried to run away so she wouldn't be forced into the religion not of her choice. Anton intervened, calmed everyone down, pointed out that his father-in-law Johannes Roemer managed to deal with the whole two-religions-under-one-roof thing just fine, and that the girl should be free to follow her own conscience. Anton had a hairy start to life, but it sounds like he grew up to be a wise and respected kind of guy.
8. Johann Justus, b. 16 Oct 1717 in Michelstadt: "On the 16th of October (1717) a little son was born to Georg Andreas Hartwig, cavalry captain, and his beloved wife Dorothea Sophia, born Shumacherin, and the ____ ____ (a date, unreadable) was Johann Justus baptized. The godfather was Mr. Johann Justus Boden, a theology professor in Coburg. In his place stood Mr. Buttner, former chamberlain in Fuerstenau." He d. there 2 Aug 1720: "The 2 day of August (1720), Johann Augustus, age 2 years and 9 months, little son of Mr. Georg Andreas Hartwig, cavalry captain, and his beloved Dorothea Sophia, was buried in the still of the morning at 5 o'clock."
9. Charlotta Amalia (and BTW there is no Maria in her name in any document except for Familysearch): "Steinbach (an area in Michelstadt), 1720: On the first day of July, a little daughter was born to Mr. Georg Andreas Hartwig, cavalry captain, and his beloved [wife] Sophia, nee Shumacher, and on the 5th Charlotta Amalia was baptized. The godmother was Lady Countess Charlotta Amalia, noble wife of Count Philip Carl in Fuerstenau."
Anyway, they were all very interesting people -- and a little notorious sometimes too. I keep coming back to take a stab at the Hartwigs. There were a ton of Hartwig families paying taxes in a printed record in 1678, but I don't know if Georg was attached to any of them. Part of the problem is simply access to the records. I'm sure that if I was in Wolfenbuttel, I could go to the archive and spend a year searching, and find him ... much of the information in these articles about the Hartwich family antics came from the Archiv des Freiherrn Wambolt von Umstadt, apparently..."

2. From Rose Green's contribution to Family Search in the entry for George Andreas Hartwich accessed 18 May 2015:
"The following is a collection of what we know and hypothesize about Georg Andreas Hartwich. At present, the holdings we need from the Staatsarchiv Wolfenbüttel are not online or available through the Family History Library on microfilm; more research should be done, but it might have to be done in person in Wolfenbüttel.
Firstly, Hartwich and Hartwig are alternate spellings for the same pronunciation in German. And Georg = Jürgen.
Thus far, we have not located Georg's birth information. We sure know a lot about his life, though! If you go by his death record, he was born in 1666 (never take death records as gospel truth -- the subject in question isn't around to correct you). I'm fairly positive he was from the Kingdom of Braunschweig/Wolfenbuettel. I found a book of tax records from 1679 as well as a list of funeral records from Wolfenbuettel where there were many Hartwig families of appropriate class. He shows up in the military as a lieutenant in 1702 in Wolfenbuettel and while I can't find any record of him being a student there, his daughter Charlotta's (our ancestor) godmother was the wife of a Count (the Graf von Erbach) who did attend school at the Ritterakademie (knight's or maybe just cavalry academy) in Wolfenbuettel at that time. He hired out to Schleswig-Holstein (these are all parts of modern Germany but were their own countries back then) as a Rittmeister, or cavalry captain, around 1703 when the War of Spanish Succession was going on. Occasionally you see him referred to as a "von Hartwig" in a few articles on the military campaign, but I don't think he really was. However, he was an officer, which means that someone in his family must have had a little money. You don't work up through the ranks for that. I haven't looked lately, but at the time I was researching, the church records for Wolfenbuettel weren't available without going to the physical archive in town, but perhaps someday they'll be digitized. Who knows! I think really, the way to find him is to read every page in the church book until he shows up. But it's handwritten, unindexed, and in German. So, time consuming. (Plus the access issue.)
He got out of the military in 1715. He had married by then, and we know his wife's name was Dorothea Sophia Schumacher (or Schumacherin, to use the archaic formation for female name endings). However, their marriage doesn't show up in any printed marriage lists, and I checked all the ones I could find. She was born about 1682, according to her death records. I found eight, maybe nine children for them, but only birth records for the last two. Anyway, they moved to Michelstadt in the present-day state of Hesse, presumably because the local count (the Graf Philip Karl von Erbach) was someone he knew from his Wolfenbuettel days. He was retired, but he still worked training the soldiers or something. Two of his children were born in Michelstadt -- Charlotta Amalia, on 1 July 1720 in Steinbach, a part of Michelstadt. Her godmother was the Graf's wife, the Countess Charlotta Amalia), and Johann Justus, b. 16 Oct 1717 in Steinbach and d. 2 Aug 1720 there. The godfather was, interestingly, a man named Johann Justus Bode, who was a theology professor in Coburg (which is not really near any of those other places), and a Mr. Buettner, a former chamberlin in Fuerstenau (i.e. the part of Michelstadt where the count lived) stood in for him. Johann Justus Bode was also from Wolfenbuettel, however... (You see how all signs point back there?)
Georg Andreas Hartwich ended up moving somewhat out of town to Reichelsheim, but apparently he had a bit of a temper, and was finally asked to quit his military training job because he was "too violent to the soldiers." Ouch. His oldest son, Georg Ernst Andreas, apparently produced a child in nearby Niederkainsbach with someone's maid, though (Anna Elisabetha Friedrich; child Johann Peter, b. 16 May 1726, d. 28 Apr 1731 of smallpox).
Then the family moved to Birkenau, a little west of Michelstadt. The old count there had died and his sisters did not inherit his ruling power, but they did end up with some land that they wanted to get rid of. So they sold a mill over on the Weschnitz River to our friend Hartwich. A distant relative of the deceased count showed up to take over, and he was Catholic (the Hartwichs were Lutheran, and this was not terribly long after the Catholic-Lutheran 30 Years' War that killed 90% of the population in Birkenau, so you can imagine that prejudices may have been strong). The new count and the Rittmeister did not get along, you might say -- Georg Hartwich liked to do things like fish in the pond and serve alcohol without proper papers, and the count sent the law after him. Oldest son Georg Ernst spent a night in jail for protesting the treatment his father got, and at one point the whole Hartwich family holed up inside their mill and had a sort of armed standoff.
Georg Andreas Hartwich died in Birkenau 13 Jun 1734. This is his death record: "(1734), entry #408. On the 13th of June died Mr. Georg Andreas Hartwig, cavalry captain, and on the 5th, being the third day of Pentecost, at a crowded meeting and funeral sermon he was buried. His age: 68 years, a few months. The text was I ___ him ___ ___ (illegible) the 3rd and 4th verses from the song Auf Christenmensch auf auf zum Streit. (The name of the song is something like, Christian people--to the fight! to the fight! which seems rather appropriate...)
Sources I found regarding Georg:
1701 Lieutenant in Wolfenbuettel, according to a letter from the Niedersaechsischen Staatsarchiv in Wolfenbuettel, 17 June 2002. They found it in the "Index des Bestandes 3 Alt (Bestallungen)" under number 670 and 684. (That would be your call number for the document that mentions him.)
1703-1712 A letter from the Landesarchiv von Schleswig-Holstein in Schleswig, dated 21 March 2002 said this: "Juergen (Georg) Andreas Hartwig ist in den Jahren 1703 bis 1712 als Rittmeister und Kompaniechef des sog. 'Reichskontingents' merhfach nachzuweisen; des 'Regiments zu Pferde' des Herzogs von Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf, das als 'Reichshilfe' am Spanischen Erbfolgekrieg teil nahm." (Jurgen/Georg Andreas Hartwig can be documented many times as cavalry captain and company head of the so-called Reichskontingent/national contingent? -- the horse regiment of the Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Gottof that took part in the War of Spanish Succession.)
1717-1720 lived in Steinbach, Michelstadt, Hesse (as mentioned in the Lutheran church records of Michelstadt)
1720?-1728 Lived in Reichelsheim, Hesse (mentioned in the Freiherrlich Wamboltisches Archiv, Bestand 191/7)
1728 bought the Carlebachmuehle (Carlebach Mill) in Birkenau, Hesse. In the sale he's called "der holsteinische Rittmeister Georg Andreas Hartwich" (the Holstein Cavalry Captain Georg Andreas Hartwich). Mentioned in the book 1200 Jahre Birkenau, published 1994 by Verlag Bitsch in Birkenau.
Died in Birkenau in 1740, age about 58 years (source: Birkenau Lutheran church records)
A book called Die Kopfsteuerbeschreibung des Fuerstentums Braunschweig-Wolfenbuettel von 1678, by Heinrich Medefind, published by Verlag Hahnsche Buchhandlung Hannover, 2000, mentions Hartwig families on the tax rolls in the following areas around Wolfenbuettel:
Uefingen, Vogtei Leiferde, Gericht Beddingen: Verwalter Heinrich Hartewieg, farmer; wife, sister, servant, 2 field hands, a boy, an overseer, and 2 girls (maids)
Wenzen, Amt Greene: the widow of Claus Hartwieg (a second-rate overseer), son, 2 sons (boys), daughter
Stadt Helmstedt, Ostviertel: Hanss Hartwig's widow, sister, daughter
Grasleben, Kloster Mariental: (farmers) Christian Hartwig, wife, 3 sons, daughter
Gut Allrode, Grafschaft Blankenburg (Adlige und Schriftsassen; Hausleute zum Gute gehoerig/people belonging to the estate; it's unclear whether these are the nobles or the servants): Andreas Hartwig and wife
Faktorei Tanne, Kloster Michaelstein, Grafschaft Blankenburg: Andreas Hartwig, wife, smith's servant, boy
Braunlage, Amt Blankenburg (house servants): Zachariass Hartwig, carpenter, wife, daughter, mother-in-law
The really good article that discusses Georg's regiment in detail is called "Schleswig-holsteiner unter gottorfischer Fahne im spanischem Erbfolgekrieg," by Christian Kock, published in the Zeitschrift der Gesellschaft fuer Schleswig-holsteinische Geschichte, 64. Band (64th volume), Karl Wachholz Verlag, Neumuenster in Holstein, 1936, pp. 161-200.). It's all in German, naturally, and in the horrible Fraktur typeface. The gist of it as it refers to our man Hartwig is this:
7 Sept 1701 -- England, Holland, and Austria form an alliance. Denmark decides to support them. (Schleswig was part of Denmark at the time.) Gottorf initially wasn't a fan of the war but changed their minds. Their leader fell in battle in Klissow in 1702 and the new leadership decided to support these other armies by sending 4 regiments: 2 cavalry and 2 infantry. 30 Sept 1702 -- they declare war against France.
The cavalry regiment of Hinrich von der Osten had 6 companies that were sent as the Reichskontingent, each numbering 50 men:
1. Leibkompagnie, led by Capt. lieut. von Pederstorff
2. Oberstleutnant von Baehr's company
3. Major Nicolaus Elver's company
4. Rittmeister von Alpenbourg's company
5. Rittmeister von der Luehe's company (including 36 riders from Luebeck)
6. Rittmeister Hartwig's company. (Officers: Rittmeister Juergen/Georg Andreas Harwig, Lieutenant Rotjer Hatthiessen, Kornett Martin Pribbert Normann, who fell at Hoechstedt on 13 Aug 1704)
They crossed the Elbe River near Artlenburg on the way to Frankfurt am Main. Joined the army of Markgraf Ludwig von Baden at Oberrhein, and joined with dragoons of Braunschweig-Lueneburg, with whom they had fought alongside in the past. Marched to the front on 12 July 1703.
Von Osten didn't want to fight for the Kaiser so he was replaced by Major Nicolaus Elver. Not much action in 1703 -- only some sick horses. At the end of November they went into winter quarters. However, Gottorf got sent to help out the war in Amberg (in today's Bavaria) on 23 December 1703. They had to winter in the Bayrische Pfalz and it wasn't very nice -- there weren't many comfortable places for the army. At this time, according to the Staatsarchiv Kiel A. XX Nr. 1441, the company of Hartwig consisted of the following:
present: 36
send on missions elsewhere: --
dead: --
deserted: 22
captured: 2
taken on: --

22 Mar 1704 from the Stabsquartier Rentzlingen (Rensling). The regiment quartered around Kuntzenhausen, near Weissenburg, in Mittelfranken (in today's Bavaria)
May 1704 -- off to battle again. Elver became Obristleutnant in Feb 1704
13 Aug 1704 battle at Hoechstaedt--allies defeat French. Alpenbourg died and Hartwig took over his company. Hartwig's own company was decimated in battle in 1703 (see the Gottorfisches Geheimes Conseil-Archiv, 5. Cammer, Nr. 320, in the Reichsarchiv Kopenhagen).
17 Sep 1704 in Landau
2 Jan 1705 report from Elver assessed Harwig's company as follows:

3 March to Worms (Sachsen Eisenach). They had no more money to sustain themselves. They moved into town and all got "Fleckfieber" (smallpox? Some kind of feverish pox?) The horses went to Fourage. The foot soldiers tried going to Aschaffenburg but returned as it wasn't much better.
1706 They owed the city of Worms 1453 Reichstaler and 16 Schillings for feeding horses, and in the spring they decided to go home.
2 Jun 1705 camped by Ober-Biel (Buehl) near Stollenhofer line.

The soldiers' wives usually stayed behind if the soldiers were already married. 1 in 8 soldiers were married. The kids and wives who came made for slow progress.
As you can see, the article is pretty detailed. And he was everywhere!
I know there have to be records on Georg Andreas Hartwich. I just haven't found them yet. Most of the things I did find were by tracing all his friends and associates -- where did he know the Graf von Erbach from? What about this Dr. Bode in Coburg? That's how I found the military records in Wolfenbuettel. But I don't know anything before 1702. I wish I could find something on his wife, but she could be from "anywhere" -- it's a very common surname (it's just Shoemaker!) and he was all over modern Germany while in the military. Hopefully this will give someone some clues to pursue, however."

3. Rose Green per email of 18 May 2015. Reference is made in other notes to the Carlebachmuele. The following is addtional information:
"The Carlebach mill is not the same as the mill the Roemers owned. That was the Donels or Nikolai Mill. The tanner Johannes Roemer acquired it in 1706 with the intent to put a Lohmuhle on it (and I have no idea what that is -- but I think it has something to do with mills and tanning. Not knowing anything about either one, I can read definitions of it, but I still don't really know what it is. The wiki article in German says it does something with bits of wood. Maybe some kind of sawmill, but what does that have to do with tanning? Plus, they still had to pay 1.5 bushels of grain in tax on it every year.) The Roemers kept it until 1740, and after that, it was run by our friend Anton Hartwich and Hans Michael Nikolai (not such a stretch, since Anton married into the Roemers). In 1791 the mill went to the Kadel family due to a marriage.
In modern times it was owned by "Firma Frank" (the Frank company). It sits at the bottom of a very steep ravine, sort of on the main road, on the dividing line between Birkenau and Weinheim. There was no place to pull off to take a picture, though. But maybe it's visible on google street view? Both mills were there in 2002.
As of this date, the following is a weblink to the mill

4. Rose Green provided me on 18 Jul 2015 the following research paper for the use of hiring a professional researcher to review records at Wolfenbuettel. On 20 Aug 2015, I hired Marion Wolfert; 2541 Campus, 7136 South; SLC. Phone 801 943-8891 awaiting her research). The research report:
"Georg Andreas Hartwig, Rittmeister Born about 1666, according to death record (13 June 1734, Birkenau, Hessen, age "68 Jahr weniger Monat")
1701—Shows up in the Niedersächsisches Staatsarchiv, Forstweg 2, 38302 Wolfenbüttel: "Auch im Index des Bestandes 3 Alt (Bestallungen) wird unter Nrn. 670 und 684 ein Leutnant Georg Andreas Hartwig (1701) erwähnt" I think he made lieutenant on 21 June 1701. I have seen *some* records from this collection and mostly they just mention him by name, but without biographical data. There may be more, but I was dependent on someone else making copies at the time.
1703-1712—serving in the War of Spanish Succession in the cavalry of the Herzog of Holstein- Gottorf as "Rittmeister und Kompaniechef des sogennanten ‘Reichskontingents' mehrfach nachzuweisen; des ‘Regiments zu Pferde' des Herzogs von Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf, das als ‘Reichshilfe' am Spanischen Erbfolgekrieg teilnahm." The Landesarchiv of Schleswig-Holstein in Schleswig did not have any other biographical information on him. Son Anton was born about 1710, according to his death record, so this would be during his service as a Rittmeister.
1717-1720—living in Michelstadt, Hessen (two children christened in Steinbach, today a Stadtteil of Michelstadt)
1720-1728—According to reports in the Wambolt archives in Birkenau, he lived in several different houses in Reichelsheim, Hessen, but they don't show up in the Kirchenbücher (no children being born or dying). He was finally asked to leave by the Ortsherr because of his violent nature (wanted to introduce beatings to the soldiers). The military records from Reichelsheim were moved to Darmstadt and bombed in WWII.
1728—purchased the Carlebachmühle on Weinheimerstr (#6) in Birkenau from the sisters of the late Ortsherr von Bonn. Which started any number of problems with the new Ortsherr, Wambolt von Umstadt (Wambolt thought he should get it, and the sale was done without his knowledge). In 1729 there was an armed standoff in the mill between Hartwig and the mill people on one side, and Wambolt's people on the other. The Hartwigs did not come off conquerors (they kept the mill but had fines and the oldest son, Georg Ernst Andreas, got to spend a night in jail to cool his temper).
Married Dorothea Sophia born Schumacherin, who was born around 1682 (died in Birkenau 28 Jan 1740, aged "ohngefuehr 58 Jahre.") I searched some of the printed marriage records for northern Germany and did not find their marriage.
Known children:
1. Georg Ernst Andreas. B. about 1700. Produced an illegitimate child in Nieder-Kainsbach (source: Kirchenbuch Brensbach) 16 May 1726 with Anna Elisabetha Friedrich. Georg was specifically named as the son of the Rittmeister Georg Andreas Hartwig. In 1728 he spent a night in jail in Birkenau after he went to protest the fine his father was supposed to pay over irregularities in the mill purchase. Possibly the oldest. On 29 April 1740, after a period of deep "melancholie," he shot himself in the Carlebachmühle. The church entry was rather understanding, saying he'd been doing better but then had a strong attack of depression. It also said that he was a law student at the time. I have checked all of the printed university matriculation records I could find, but did not find him mentioned.
2. Johanna Friderica, born about 22 Jan 1704 (reckoned from death date). Married Johann Ernst von Hitzacker, a royal Prussian military officer, at the Carlebachmühle in Birkenau on 24 Sept 1730. Had one child, Andreas Christoph Wilhelm Otto von Hitzacker, born 20 Oct 1732 in Birkenau (from FHC film 1340344, Evangelische Kirche Birkenau): "Den 22 Oktobr. ist gebohren u. den 24ten getaufft worden, des wohlgebohrenen hln. Johann Ernst von Hitzacker, königl. preußischen Officiers, u. seiner Gemahlin Fr. Johanne Friderica. Sohn Nahmens Andreas Christoph Wilhelm Otto, welcher aus der hl. Tauffe gehoben, sein hl. Schweigervatter der hl. Rittmeister Georg Andreas Hartwig, so wohl von sich also auch von Hn. Christoph v. Hitzacker, auff Ascherode Erb. Hn. Kön. Preuß. Hauptmann unter dem Litauischen Regiments, und den, von Hn. Otto von Hitzacker, Erb. U. Lehns Hn. zu Lüneburg." Johanna died 27 Jan 1735 in Birkenau. Nothing is know about what happened to either her husband or son.
3. Peter. This is a maybe. On a list of people raising money in 1741 to build a new gallows in Birkenau, his name shows up. He could also be a grandson. The name Hartwig otherwise ONLY shows up in the Birkenau area in connection with this family.
4. Conrad Friedrich. Married Maria Cordula Walterin 21 Feb 1735 in Birkenau.
5. Anton Joachim. Born about 1710, according to death record. Was an apprentice tanner. Tried to elope with the 16 YO daughter of the pastor, who put a restraining order against him when he found out. (Anton would have been 26). A few months later (18 Jul 1736), he married Eva Katharina Römer in Birkenau. Later became a rather respected church elder. Died in Birkenau 23 Feb 1772.
6. Nicolaus Adolph, miller on the Weschnitz River. Married widow Maria Sophia Hedwich Mettenius (first husband: Johann Philipp Schrump) in Birkenau 24 Sep 1739
7. Johann Justus was born in Steinbach, Michelstadt, Hessen. "On the 16th of October (1717) a little son was born to Georg Andreas Hartwig, cavalry captain, and his beloved wife Dorothea Sophia, born Schumacherin, and [date, unreadable] was Johann Justus baptized. The godfather was Mr. Johann Justus Bode, a theology professor in Coburg. Standing in for him as proxy was Mr. Buttner, former chamberlain in Fürstenau." (Michelstadt church records) Bode was born in Bodenburg, near Wolfenbüttel. Little Johann Justus was buried in the still of the morning of 2 August 1720 in Steinbach, Michelstadt, Hessen.
8. Charlotta Amalia was also born in Steinbach, Michelstadt, Hessen. "On the first day of July [1720], a little daughter was born to Mr. Georg Andreas Hartwig, cavalry captain, and his beloved [wife] Sophia, nee Schumacher, and on the 5th Charlotta Amalia was baptized. The godmother was Countess (Grafin) Charlotta Amalia, noble wife of Graf Philip Carl in Fürstenau." She was confirmed around 1732 in Birkenau. The Graf went to school at the Ritterakademie in Wolfenbüttel and was there in 1701. I think he was also in the cavalry in the War of Spanish Succession. Charlotta Amalia married Johann Michael Römer in Birkenau on 18 July 1736, and they were the first couple to leave Birkenau for America, in 1738. Died in Frederick, Frederick, Maryland on 8 Feb 1779.
Georg Andreas Hartwig died 13 June 1734 in Birkenau. His death record reads as follows (Birkenau Kirchenbuch 2, p. 190): "(1734), entry #408. On the 13th day of June died Mr. Georg Andreas Hartwig, Rittmeister, and on the 5th, being the third day of Pentecost, after a crowded meeting at the funeral sermon he was buried. His age: 68 years, a few months. The text was I (word illegible) him (word illegible) the 3rd and 4th verses from the hymn ‘Auf Christenmensch auf auf zum Streit.'"
Dorothea Sophia Schumacherin died 28 January 1740 in Birkenau: "On the 28th of January the widow of the Rittmeister Mr. Hartwich, who lived at the mill in this place and who died in 1734, died, age about 58 years, and was buried on the 31st of the same month following a funeral sermon. The sermon text was Ecclesiastes 3:21. She was named Dorothea Sophia nee Schumacher."
He was a commissioned army officer.
His son was a university student (or at least, people believed he was).
His daughter married another commissioned officer, who happened to be a member of a lesser branch of the house of Welf (the von Hitzackers).
Another daughter had the Grafin as her godmother.
Another son had a professor as his godfather, even though the man was not there in person at the baptism, and lived very far away (Coburg).
He bought a mill from the sisters of the former Ortsherr.
This man has to be mentioned somewhere!"

5. September 2015, I hired the professional genealogist Marion Wolfert to research Georg Andreas Hartwich in person during her recent visit to Germany. I hired her for research at Wolfenbuettel and Braunschweig. In Braunschweig she met in person with two key archivists to identify record sets that could work. The archive is the one with the two lions in the front and may also be called locally the city archive. The archivists checked their inventory lists and they assured her there was nothing that could be found in their archive in regards to our quest. It was thought that there may be military records there that could help and its search was secondary to the Wolfenbuettel search.
Not much better results at Wolfenbuettel. The strategy was to look at the emigration records to try to identify a local pattern of Hartwigs from that area to perhaps help zero in further efforts. The emigration records were extracted for all Hartwigs and the report follows. At this point Marion felt there was nothing more that could productively be done in a reasonable time. (I had hired her for a full day with the option to continue if there was something that could be productive.) An exhaustive parish by parish search for Andreas may be required, but there is the chance that he may never have been there to begin with in a normal parish manner. In any regards we see some possibilities in the emigration list as shown below.
I don't know whether or not we have exhausted the possibilities of these archives, but it would probably now take a non-standard, creative, and lengthy approach in record sets most people would probably not normally consider -- I don't think such a thing could be hired out with standard genealogists.

Marion reported:
"The State Archive in Braunschweig has no information about your ancestral Georg Andreas HARTWIG, a Rittmeister (born about 1666).
As agreed, I checked the emigration records, compiled by the archive in a book. It lists the following HARTWIG people:
1. Schoolrector HARTWIG, died 1817, He was working in Grande and Kirchrohsen (Emmerthal)
2. Otto HARTWIG, born 22 Aug 1861 in Schweinemuende
3. Andreas Otto HARTWIG, born 12 Mar 1835 in Hassel by the Weser River
4. Georg HARTWIG, born 29 Apr 1842 in Hassel close to the River Weser
5. HARTWIG born about 1844 from Dorveden
6. Samuel HARTWIG, born 1784 in Offenbach
As you can see, all of the above listed persons were born way too late and the place of origin for each one of them is from different parts in Germany. I guess, the surname HARTWIG was not isolated in a certain area, but can be found all over in Germany."

1. His death record in the Evangelische Kirche Birkenau, Kreis Heppenheim, Germany, states that he was "68 years, a few months" on 13 June 1734. Military records point to a possible birth location in Wolfenbuettel, Germany.
