_________________ -- THE NOFTSGERS LAND IN AMERICA
• RARE OLD BOOK
A REPRINT FROM THE
CLINTON COUNTY DEMOCRAT - 1892
A son of Mr. N. P. Noftsger, of New Antioch, has shown us a rare and wonderful old volume, a Protestant Bible printed in German text in Zurich, Switzerland in 1536, and brought to this country by the great great grandfather of the young man. A family tradition is to the effect that it cost the old time Noftsger forty acres of good land in Germany. It was in a ship wreck on the voyage to the new world and has evidently been water soaked, but is in marvelously good state of preservation. The book is over six inches through, a foot and half long by a foot wide, and is bound in leathercovered boards, which are in turn bound and tipped with brass. The claps are of heavy leather with brass hooks. It is now in the hands of the 5th generation of Noftsger’s and descends to the eldest son. The German text is easily read by a student of the language, but the family record written in the front and back is not so easily
ipherable. The book looks as though it

There is plenty of confusion surrounding the featured Noftsger family in this issue of the News We thought that by featuring the family in the News and raising lots of questions, descendants will come forth with some answers to help us clear up some of the unknowns to the family line. It has been allegedc that four Noftsger brothers landed in Maryland during the early 1800’s and made their way to Kentucky an’l finally to southwest Ohio to Brown and Clermont counties. The legend has been passed from generation to generation and came to us from descendants who are living in Washington State, Ohio and Iowa. The legend lists the names of the brothers as Nelson, Christian, John and Jacob. However, information derived from an old family Bible owned by Willard Noftsger of Wilmington. Ohio; the names of the brothers must have been Christian, John, Henry and at least one more whose name is not readable but was born in 1802. The Neftzgers arrived in the area at about the same time so it is quite possible that the one not identifie changed the spelling of the name to Neftzger although we do not have proof of this. Birthdates of three of the four brothers check from both sources. Checking the Census of Population reveals

LETTERS
We had a nice long letter from Mrs. A. 1. Goold of Northfleld, Minnesota to tell us of the many genealogical successes she has enjoyed while researching the Shafer and McKee families in Canada. Her first good clue came while studying the Canadian Census in the Ontario Archives in Toronto. I was not aware of a Candian Census so her letter helped to add some general genealogical information to
Massillon Newspaper Clipping sent to us by Mrs. Leona Baughman
“JOHN B. Nofsinger, manager of industrial engineering for the Republic Steel Corporat ion will speak at a luncheon meeting of the Massillon Rotary Club on Thursday at the Holiday Inn. Nofsinger’s topic will be Project Mainspring.”
Do you have idea where this Nofsinger fits into one of our lines. His name appears in our paper often. Mrs. Baughman..
Editor’s Note -sol but I could not trace this one. Quite a few of them in your line(Matthew) used this spelling. We will ask Mrs. Laura Clapper of Mansfield, Ohio and 0. E. Noftsinger of Dearborn, Michigan to look at this one and see if they can help. Also, I will send a copy of the News to Republic Steel - perhaps he will write and give us some clues that will help us identify his ancestors.
Elizabeth Naftzger(Mrs. Well’s great great grandmother) born June 8, 1812 in Switzerland. She died July 18, 1882 in Auglaize Twp, Paulding County, Ohio. She was married twice in Switzerland, probably in the Canton of Berne for this is where some of her children were born. Her first husband was Nicholas Stuckey and the second one was Samuel Grossenbacher. She and Samuel came to America in 1847 and settled near Upper Sandusky in Wyandot County, Ohio where they lived for four years. They then moved to Paulding County, Ohio. Elizabeth brought her children with her from Switzerland, namely ; Christian Stuckey, Barbara Stuckey(mrd. Philip Stork), John Stuckey, Jacob Stuckey, Nicholas Stuckey, Frederick Grossenbacher. I Three more children were born in America. They are Mary, Elizabeth and Simon Grossenbacher.

We just received our past copies of the News. We were living at Rexburg, Idaho. The breaking of Teton Dam was directly in line to demolish most all of the homes in the valley. Out son ieRexburg was on a hill above the valley and escaped the damaging blow. We were taken by him and his son a little before the flood came down into town. We watched the flood from the steps of his home. It wasn’t a pretty sight to see. Since then, we have been living with another son in Washington State.

FULTON COUNTY
PUBLICATION
Progress is proceeding on the publication of the Fulton County Nafziger-Nofzigers almost on schedule. Recently, the energy crisis shut down the shop where the printing is being done. About the only two surprises that have resulted is the “size of the project” and the “cost” involved in getting the typesetting and printing done. We still plan to try to go with three of them hoping that one will tend to support the other one and so on. The first one ia authored by Thurlow Nofziger and should be done by early summer. It would appear the second one will be spearhead by Frank Nofsinger of Sturgis, Michigan. The third and largest publication will be one authored and spearheaded by Harley Nofziger of Archbold, Ohio. If the idea works without too great of loss of finances, we hope to continue the idea until all Nafzgers lines are represented by some type of publication. Please keep in mind that the entire idea will take years to complete
- if that is possible.
An article recently crossed niv desk about your research on the Nafzgers - however it is spelled. In 1972. m sister brought home t Germany a list of Naffzigers buried in an old family cemetery at Herfingerhof, Germany. It is located near Darmst Germany. Our family, the Kennels, dates back to 1320 to the Canton of Berne. Switzerland. However, at the pre’.ent, we only have it from 1717, a Johannis Kennel who was born at Munstidolf, Germany. In the 3rd. generation, we have a Magdalena Naffziger, born in 1791 - died in 1873 who was married to another Johannes Kennel.
MRS. ChARLES OLIVER
St. Petersburg, Florida
Et!itor’s Note - Mrs. Oliver included in her letter the dates on the tombstones of the old Naffziger cemetery in Germany. Copies of the Kennel family illustating the various times that the two families cross have been included. In addition to Johannes and Magdalena, we find that an Amelia Kennel married Ferdenand Naffziger in the middle 1800’s. We believe that Magdalena is likely to have been the daughter of Peter Naffziger of Groversheim, Germany. Descendants settled in the Washington, Illinois area. Can any of iir readers help us idenify the two Naffziger ines for Mrs. Oliver.

CONT,D FROM PAGE 1
fortunate in possessing so valuable an assurance of the antiquity and standing of their family. Intrinsically we would say that the book is very valuable, but to no one else can it mean so much as to those whose names are inscribed within its boards for generations back. It has a few plates by way of illustrations, which judged by the perfection of to-day in the way of picture making, look quaintly ridiculous, but the motive of each picture can be gotten at in every instance by a little study.
LEONA BAUGHMAN WRITES:
Thanks to Mrs. Leona Baughman of Massillon, Ohio for several letters with information updating her family line. We believe she is a descendant of Matthew Mathias Naftzinger who landed in America in 1750. Thus far, we have not documented the connection although we have not found any other lines where her ancestors might connect.
DEATHS
Mrs. Samuel (Helen) Bricker, 52 years of Massilion, Ohio died on November 21, 1976. She had been in failing health for four years. In addition to her husband, she is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Beverly Conn of Massilon; two sons, Herbert and Dennis; a sister, Mrs. Margaret Rhine; six brothers, John, David, Charles, Gerald, Robert and Paul. Mrs. Bricker is a descendant of Matthew-MathiaS
(as near as we can tell) Nafzger’s line who landed in Americ in 1750.
DEATHS
We were sorry to learn of the death of Leonid N. Schultze on November 9, 1976 at Tampa, Florida. Mr. Schultze was born in 1896 in Russia. Interment at the Hillsborough Memorial Park, Tampa, Florida. Surving is his wife, Mrs. Awyn Noffsinger - a descendant of Rudolph Noffsinger who landed in America in 1749.
Recent marriages - Mildred Irene Baughman of Massillon, Ohio on October 20, 1976 to &ant Kowell of Massillon. Mildred is the hughter of Raymond and Leona Baughman aid a descendant (we think of Matthew ftzinger who landed in America in 1750.
I just recently received a request for some family information from a lady in Provo, Utah.
She was really interested in Metzer, Brumbaugh, etc. but in going over her family group sheets, I see where has a Lydia Noffsinger, born in 1798 in Pennsylvania who married in 1818 in Montgomery County, Ohio to Abraham Sink. Do you have any information on this couple?
WILBUR LINDER Portland, Indiana.
The date of birth would appear to tell us that she is a grandchild of one of the early Nafzgers(who landed in 1749) and the fact that she was married in Montgomery County, Ohio and resided in Darke County would seem to indicate that she is a grandchild or great grandchild of Rudolph Noffsinger. In looking through some of my information I came across the Lydia Noffsinger who married an Emerick but as you reasoned in your letter, this could not be the one. I have a record of another Lydia Noffsinger who was born in 1797 - she is the daughter of Mathias Noffsinger who was a son of Rudolph. The only problem is she married Simon Drum. They lived in Monroe County, Ohio so this is not likely to be the right one. It is obvious that we do have all the grandchildren of Rudolph listed in our records. Andrew Noffsinger lived in Darke County at one time and it may well have been that he had a daughter named Lydia. Most of the great grandchildren of Rudolph were born in the early 1800’s so it is not likely that was a great grandchild of Rudolph.
LETTERS
We really appreciated the letter and the offer to visit with Vietta Nafziger Heffner of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The copy of this issue of the NEWS is being prepared on one of the worst days of what is billed as the worst winter of the century. In fact. I am home because I could not get to work. Nearly everything i’closeddue to a bad winter storm. And I came across Mrs. Heffner’s invitation to visit in Florida. It really hurts to not to be able to accept.
I we received a letter from Mrs.
kona Baughman, Massillon. Ohio supplying
with a great deal of undated information on
r family line.
WE HEAR FROM
MEREDITH RUNNER
Did Jeremiah Naftzger have descendants. If so, where can I get a family tree for that branch? We have photos of Amelia 11 Naftzger, wife of Joseph Naftzger. born 1810 and five of their six surviving children would be glad to exchange copies of these photos for photos of other descendants of John Naftzger(GRANDSON OF Jacob who entered theU. S. in 1750
AN OFFER
TO EXCHANGE OLD PHOTOS
Editor a Note: Here is our chance to exchange some pictures. Meredith is referring to descendants of Jacob Naftzinger who landed in America in 1750. and settled in the Palmyra, Peniisylvania area. We hope descendants of Jacob will use this opportunity and write: Meredith Runner, 715 Willowbrook Boulder, Colorado 80302.
We have received a great deal of information from Mrs. Isabelle J. Oliver of Evergreen Park, Illinois. Isabelle saw an ad that I had placed in the Genealogical Helper in 1973 The vast amount of historical information on Muhlenberg County, Kentucky and the early Noffsingers who settled there is greatly appreciated. It was nice of her to take the time and forward the material although
is probably not a Nafzger descendant.
