Editorial Note: We have gone to visit Jacob's grave in Bremen, Marshall County, Indiana. This is a very large, very well-maintained cemetery. Just because Jacob was buried in Marshall County doesn't mean he actually died there. Death records from 1881 in Indiana are not available and we are told that people who have died all over the United States are buried in the Bremen Cemetery. Jacob was found in the 1880 census in St. Joseph County, Indiana and was buried upon his death in October 1881 in Marshall County, Indiana.

|28||A birth record of the children of Duncan Bohannon, Jr. was transcribed from the register of Kingston Parish on June 12, 1722 by Henry Bolton, perhaps for Duncan to take with him when he moved from Gloucester County: Sarah ye Daughter of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 7th of Sepr. 1698 Judeth ye daughter of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 6th of may 1699 William ye Son of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 4th of Aprill 1701 Dunken ye Son of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 17th of January 1704 Robert ye Son of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 30th of March 1707 Elliott ye Son of Dunken & Sarah Bohannon was born ye 21th of december 1711 Markus was born ye 6th of May 1710 Phillis was born ye 12th June 1714 A true Copy from ye Regestor Test. Henry Bolton Ch. Regr. Kings psh. NOTE: Kings Parish probably was an abbreviation for Kingston Parish since there is no record of a Kings Parish in Virginia. The birth entries for Markus and Phillis probably represent slave children. Phillis apparently was still living in 1753 when Duncan Bohannon, Jr. made his will.|
NOTE: Daughter Margaret Bohannon, who was not on the birth record, is identified in the will of Duncan Bohannon, Jr. The will indicates that his sons William and Robert predeceased him:
Will of Dunkin Bohanon of the Parish of St. Thomas in the County of Orange, dated 2 March 1753...Sarah my beloved wife 21 a year during her natural life, to be kept in my son Dunkin's hands for her support, one Negro woman Phillis...Negro wench Jenny...in lieu of dower...land in King William County may be sold...children of my son William one seventh part of my estate to be equally divided...as they shall come of age...son Dunkin one seventh part...children of my son Robert one seventh part...equally divided...as they shall come of age...son Elliott one seventh part...daughter Sarah Saymor one seventh part... during her natural life and then to her heirs...daughter Judith Askue one seventh part...during her life and then to heirs lawfully begotten of her body by her present husband provided she gives good security for the said estate to return to her said children at her decease. If she refuse, to be divided among her children as they shall come of age... daughter Margaret Gollorthun one seventh part...during her natural life and then to the children lawfully begotten of her body by her former husband Henry Rice provided she gives good security. If she refuse, to be divided among her children as they shall come of age...two sons Dunkin Bohanon and Elliott Bohanon executors. The will was signed with a mark and witnessed by Joseph Thomas, David Harris, Richd. Thomas, Richd. Vernon and George Fraser.
A codicil made the same day before the same witnesses added bequests to two grandchildren ... Franky Bohanon daughter of my son Dunkin Bohanon one Negro girl Lucy...Mary Bohanon daughter of my son Elliott Bohanon one Negro girl Judy.
The will was presented into court by Duncan Bohannon (Dunkin Bohanon) on 01 March 1754 and proved by the witnesses. The inventory of the estate, returned on 28 March 1754, was valued at a total of 370.0.0, including 18 slaves valued at 348.10.0. An additional inventory returned on 25 April 1754 totaled 114.3.6, including 5 slaves worth 114. The estate was distributed on 03 April 1754 to the children of William Bohannon, Elliott Bohannon, Judith Askue, Duncan Bohannon, children of Robert Bohannon, deceased, Margaret Gollorthun, and Sarah Saymor, with each share being valued at 66.15.8. On 27 June 1754 an additional inventory was recorded in the amount of 25.5.0. The share of the children of William Bohannon consisted of "Tom, a negro man, 35.0.0, Tamer, a negro woman, 30.0.0, Jamey, a negro boy 1.0.0, one set of Va. cloth bed curtains & vallens & 2 grubbing hoes 0.15.8, total value 66.15.8." Since Margaret Bohannon had eleven children by Henry Rice (one of whom was of age to make a deed by 1747 and therefore born by 1726) and was married to John Gollorthun (Gollorthum) by 1753, it is likely that she married Rice by 1725 and was born before 1710. Perhaps, she was omitted from the birth record because she was the first child and already married by 1722 when the list was prepared.

|31||A great deal of information about Ulrich Shirk's descendants came from the book written by Henry Yocum Shirk in 1914, entitled "The Shirk Family History and Genealogy from 1665 to 1914." This book was reprinted in 1992 by John S. Shirk. Our many, many, many thanks go out to Messrs. Shirk for all the work done to bring us this wonderful book. The following was the preface written by Henry Yocum Shirk when he wrote the book in 1914: In October, 1912, I was visiting my old native home in Lancaster County, Pa. In looking over the Steinmetz Cemetery at Schoeneck, Pa., I found the inscriptions on the various tombstones of our ancestors interred there many years ago, and I felt a great desire to have a genealogy of our ancestry, and made the remark to a niece of mine, "I wish some one would write a genealogy of the Shirk family." In reply she said, "Uncle Henry, no one could do that better than you." Upon these encouraging words, having decided upon the undertaking, it was begun with a firm and confident determination to spare no effort or expense to effectually accomplish the great task of connecting the ten generations of the Shirk family, from 1665 to 1914. My dear and respected kindred of the present and future generations, I have taken great pains in diligently gathering the data of the many different branches of the family tree of the Ulrich and Anna Swar Shirk descendants, in the belief and hope that my effort in compiling this book correctly will be appreciated and prove of interest to the present and future generations of the Shirk family. H. Y. Shirk" There is a great deal of disagreement about Ulrich's marriages. Some say he was only married to Helene Myer, while others say his only wife was Barbara Grundbacher. We're not certain which is correct; however, according to information contained in the 1992 reprint of the above-mentioned book, Ulrich married Barbara Grundbacher about 1695 and "church records indicate conclusively that his five oldest children were born in Sumiswald to his wife Barbara." They also speculate that Barbara died in Europe and it is possible that Ulrich remarried to Helene Myers, a French-Swiss girl. Nothing has been found to substantiate or contradict Henry Yocum Shirk's claim of the daughters Martha and Jeannette [that they were daughters of Ulrich and Helene Myer.] "Ulrich and Barbara were Anabaptists, or Mennonites. As a result of his religious faith, he was persecuted by the Swiss government. On July 10, 1710, he was among the Mennonite Brethren being held in the Bern jail. He was deported from Switzerland in 1711." [Source: 1992 reprint of "The Shirk Family History and Genealogy from 1665 to 1914."] It is unknown where Ulrich resided in the years between 1711, when he was sent away from Switzerland, and 1729, when he arrived in Philadelphia. He was 65 years old when he landed in Philadelphia with several of his adult sons. He sailed, with his family, to the United States on the ship "Mortonhouse." Information on ship "Mortonhouse", James Coultas, master. From Rotterdam, last from Cowes, sailed on June 21, 1729 and landed in Philadelphia, Pa., on Aug. 19, 1729, with seventy-five Palatines with their families, about one hundred and eighty persons. "This family had grown to maturity and ambition when the six sons became eager to reap the benefits open to all Europe to emigrate to America, which occurred in the year A.D. 1729, when the six brothers brought their aged parents and two sisters with them, and settled in about 1732 in Lancaster county, Pa., and there took out patents for more than 2,000 acres of land."

There is debate over Archibald's given name. Descendants of Sanders McMahan have always been told that the father of Saunders was "Redmond" McMahan and they have a bible record to prove it. We now believe Archibald and Redmond are one in the same. No one knows for sure how the two names came about since they have not been found to be used together. [Source: The Common Thread published by Sam Maner at the Sevier County Library.]
The Personal Property Tax Lists for the Year 1787 for Montgomery County, Virginia (Netti Schreiner-Yantis, Genealogical Book in Print, 1987; FHL 975.5 R4sy vol 8, p 454-455) show that Redmon McMahan and George Byrd were enumerated on the same day, so they were probably neighbors. Redmon's son Archibald married George's daughter Elizabeth Byrd.

OLD PILOT IS IN CHARGE OF SEARCH
For the Treasure That Went Down With the Atlantic in the Tragedy in Which the Late Capt. Pettey was a Leading Figure.
Cleveland, Ohio, July 23 -- Bernard McGroder, 60 years old, 28 Sunset avenue, Newburg, after years of separation from the work of piloting ships through the great lakes, has been engaged by New York men to act as director of an expedition to bring up sunken treasure that has been covered by the water of Lake Erie since 1852.
The story of the sunken treasure reads like a Capt. Kidd tale. The expedition has to do with the raising from the bottom of Lake Erie of the old steamer Atlantic, which was owned by Edward B. Ward of Detroit and which sunk in 1852 with more than 300 passengers on board. Only abuot 250 were rescued. The rest with all of their money and belongings were drowned.
Amount of Treasure.
In the ship's treasury was the sum of $309,000 or $400,000, which with all the valuables of the lost passengers has never been recovered.
In 1872 an expedition to recover these sunken treasures was organized by a wrecking company. On account of the inability to get to such a depth as the treasure sunk -- a distance of 164 feet -- the plans were abandoned, and it was not until a few months ago when a company of Brooklyn (N.Y.) men got into communication with Bernard McGroder, the only living man who has any accurate knowledge of the details, that the plans for organizing the present expedition were consummated.
McGroder is an old pilot and diver, and was with the 1872 expedition when it failed.
Spot is Found.
"We came to the spot at which it is certain that the Atlantic sank," said McGroder Saturday. "In 1872 it was impossible to withstand the pressure of the water at such a great depth as 164 feet. But now, with the new inventions and methods of combating the pressure of the water, I believe the expedition will prove a success."
In March, 1915, there was a deed recorded in Cuyahoga County, Ohio from the Broadview Savings & Trust to Bernard and Sarah McGroder, for property located on East 111th Street (formerly Sunset Avenue), Cleveland, Ohio. In February, 1917, they transferred that same property to Richard and Anna White. No record of property being owned by Bernard McGroder is found in Cuyahoga County after that point, although there is property on West 140th Street, purchased by a Sarah McGroder in 1924.
He's found in the 1920 census in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio: McGRODER, Bernard (75), wife Sarah (59), children Elizabeth (21) and Francis (19). Bernard was born in Ireland; everyone else in the household was born in Ohio. Bernard immigrated to the United States in 1850 and became a naturalized citizen in 1867. All of Bernard's and Sarah's parents were born in Ireland. Bernard was a blacksmith in a steel foundry, Elizabeth was a cashier in a cigar store and Francis was a stenographer in a ? office.
When Bernard died in 1928, his son, John B. McGroder, gave the information for his death certificate: Bernard McGroder (1950 W. 54th Street, Cleveland, Ohio) was born on November 9, 1844 in Ireland. His wife was Sarah. His parents were Michael McGroder and Mary Kean. He died on October 8, 1928 at Cleveland City Hospital. He was buried at St. Joseph Cemetery on October 11, 1928.
