John Casper Stoever of Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania," compiled by Mildred Smith (msmith@cybermania.net); these following individuals are all relatives and the marriage of this person is noted with an asterisk:

      2. FHL 929.273 W181sh book "Wamplers in America," by Genevieve M. Shouse, pp. 365-6, gives some of the history of the "The Hill Church (Berg Kirche)": "The Hill Church is located four miles northwest of Lebanon, Pennsylvania in North Annville Township. It was built in 1733 and was used jointly by the Lutheran and Reformed congregations. Ref. John Casper Stoever formed the congregation in 1733. Rev. Stoever called it 'the church on the Quittapahilla' because he lived and had a mill on that stream. The Hill Church was the first organization for religious services in what is now Lebanon County and was the first to erect church buildings. According to Egle's history of Lebanon County, '...In 1754, and thereafter, when the Indians made frequent incursions, people often took their guns with them to defend themselves against savages. During divine service men with loaded muskets were placed at the door as sentinels.' The present church, built in 1837, is the third church in the same location. An ancient grave yard adjoins the church and many old markers are long gone. [The book has a picture rendering of the old two story Hill Church.]"

      DEATH:

      BURIAL:
      1. Edited selections made from the history of the Bergstrasse Church per FHL book 929.273B735bw "The Brandhofer, Brauneler, Brenneiser Family from Eastern to Western Pennsylvania," compiled by W.R. Branthoover, 1978, p. 78: "The first notice of the church is an article of agreement among twelve citizens, dated Erlen Town, may 18, 1752, for the purpose of building a church and calling a minister. Then comes the 'Church Book (record) for the congregation in Earlings Down, which the same has purchased out of the common treasurey for 5 shillings, the 7th day of February, 1753.' On Feb. 27, 1762, George Wernes and his wife, Mary Elizabeth, gave a deed for two acres of ground for two pouts ten shilling to Andrew Sweigert and Conrad Breneiser, in trust, 'for the proper use and behoof of the members of the Lutheran congregation, for a school-house and burying ground...' The first church, built about the year 1753, was a log edifice, weatherboarded; it stood nearly a hundred years, and in 1848 gae way to the handsome edifice on the hillside at present used by the congregation. The first pastor was John Theopilus Englloud, from 1753 until 1758, [subsequent pastors listed]. The church is built on a road leading from the Harrisburg and Downingtown turnpike over the Ephrata Mountains, hence its name, 'Bergstrasse'... The following named persons were among the original members of the old Bergstrasse Church... Rudolph Breneisen. The present church edifice is of brick... built in 1848..."
      The book continues with additional Breneisen baptismal records from the church records which are generally names of descendants not covered by my database.
