More Information on Peter of Iliback
Eli Byler of New Wilmington, Pennsylvania made a great effort to deliver the material appearing in this article. While returning from a trip, he journeyed by bus to Elyria, Ohio and taxied to Grafton to go over the vast amount of information with the Naftzgers of Grafton. Unfortunately, the Naftzgers were not at home. We are sorry to have missed his visit. However, Mr. Byler left the material with neighbors of the Naftzgers and we are grateful for his effort in behalf of our heritage. By the way, the neighbors certainly did enjoy their visit with him.
The new documented information provided by Mr. Byler is of considerable importance because some of it are copies of original documents such as his passport, pages from the family Bible, etc. In addition, there is information on the family when they lived in

RUDOLPH NAFZGER
l1lII]1IjJjIjIIIIIIIFIIIIIIIII1JIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlIIIIIIlIIIIIIIIIILIIIIIIIIIIIItIIIIII
Rudolph was born around 1725 in what is now Germany. Some say his place of origin was Frankford-on-Main, Hesse Cassel, but to date this has not been ver ified. At this point nothing is known of his parentage, or childhood, his approx
= imate birth year is based on the birth of his children.
In the year of the great German immigration, 1749, he left his homeland and immigrated to America on the ship “Phoenix John Mason being the Captain. The ship set sail from Rotterdam, Holland stopping at Cowes, England before crossing ing the Atlantic. On the ship with Rudolph were Mathias and Peter Noffsinger, who we presume to be his brothers.
At present we do not know just where in Pennsylvania Rudolph spent his early years, but it would appear to have been Manheim Township in Lancaster County according some tax records found for that area. He purchased land in Frederick County, Maryland in 1769 from Jacob Grove as he prepared for his move southward. In 1787 he sold land to Alexander Thomas Hawkins - I suppose this sale was made before he packed up and moved to the Weiss Settlement at Bethlehem Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania where his sons, John and Samuel had preceeded him, as they were taxed there as early as 1781.
We find Rudolph’s household in Washington County, Pennsylvania at the time of the Federal Census for 1790. It is fairly safe to assume that he and his family were
= actually living in Fredericktown, the oldest village in Bethlehem Township as that is the town where most of his children are recorded as living.
The date of Rudolph’s death is not known, but is must have been between 1800 when he appeared in the Federal Census and 1810 when he no longer appears. It
E can be assumed he died in Bethlehem Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. Rudolph’s first wife remains a complete unknown, not even her first name appears
on a known public, or church record. She was the mother of his children and died before 1784, the year that Rudolph married his second wife. She was more likely also an immigrant from one of the German States, and married Rudolph around 1750 in Pennsylvania. Rudolph married secondly a Mrs. Kernin, a widow in 1784 in the Evangelical Luthern Church in Hagerstown, Frederick County, Maryland.
Children of Rudolph and his first wife are Matthias, Peter, Samuel, Andrew, John, Anna Marie, Esther and Catherine and perhaps other children whose names
are not known to the writer.
