About Johann Diederich Struble

First Struble in USA

Added by erw244 on 14 Jan 2009

Dietrich Struble[2] (1714-1807), was the progenitor of the Struble family in America. After Dietrich and his wife Elizabeth emigrated from Albig bei Alzey, Germany they tarried for a time in Holland until arranging a relationship of intentured servitude with William Allen (loyalist) of Allentown PA fame. Allen paid the family's passage on the ship, Edinburgh, which landed at Philadelphia in 1748. After working as a stone mason to pay off his indentured debt, Dietrich moved to German Valley, New Jersey (now Long Valley). There he purchased over time from Allen a 310-acre (1.3 km2) farm where he and Elizabeth raised their large family. About 1777, however, in order to escape their predominantly loyalist neighbors and more safely support the American Revolution, the Strubles sold the farm and moved some 30 miles (48 km) north to Sussex County, NJ.[3]

The Struble children numbered ten sons, of which nine lived to adulthood and married. From this patriarchate, most Strubles in the United States trace their lineage. One of Dietrich's boys, Daniel, served under General Washington at Morristown.


Record of the Descendants of John Struble “Taken From A Comprehensive Genealogical Record of the Struble Family in America,” compiled by Uzal H. Struble, Chicago IL between c. 1899-1903; longhand copy in the Tama County Historical Society Museum and Genealogical Library, Toledo IA. Page 2 includes the following account: "At German Valley (NJ) he (Dietrich Struble) ... removed about 1777 or early in 1778 to Smith’s Hill, Sussex Co NJ. The occasion of this removal was that the Revolutionary war developed so that many of Dietrich’s neighbors were Tory in sympathy and made things uncomfortable for the fewer who held sympathy with and gave support to the Continental cause. Dietrich became disgusted with this state of affairs and decided to sell his farm and get among those who felt as he did on the subject. He secured a purchaser who however offered Continental currency in payment. The neighbors told Dietrich that if he accepted it he would never realize anything of value for it, as the colonies would never be able to secure independence, and therefore any 'promises to pay' made by an imaginary government would remain as worthless (or become more so) as it then was. Dietrich’s patriotic ire at these croakers was aroused, and he decided to complete the sale of his farm and get away, and so he accepted the Continental script and received, as it is expressed, 'a whole corn basket full' of it in payment for his farm. The result of the war made Dietrich a wealthy man for those days, and he purchased a large tract of land in Sussex County, which passed to his sons."

Ernest Self includes the following note:

Peter was known variously as Johann Diedrich Struble, Peter, orDietrich. He came from Akoen, Lorraine, France (Alsace,Germany),landing in America (Philadelphia) in 5 Sep 1748. He came on the shipEDINBURGH. He settled in German Valley, New Jersey about 1752. FromNew York State Library at Albany,N.Y. - D.A.R. transcriptions, 974.7qD23 Vol. 262, p 61-65

Letter found among the Struble papers in Conquest, NY Chicago, Ill.June 14, 1901 Mr. Emery R. Struble Grand Rapids, Mich. Dear Sir andKinsman:- Your kind favor of recent date came to hand and was greatlyappreciated. In answer to your inquiry as to who I am. I will have totell you first who the Strubles are. The Original ancestor in Americawas Dietrick

Struble who was born in Alsace, Germany about 1700. He fled fromGermany as a child with his parents, to HOLLAND, in the great PalatineExodus following the horrors of the devastating wars which laidAlsace and the other German states forming the Palatinate. The date oftheir emigration to Holland I have been unable to discover, but it wasbetween 1710 and 1720. Dietrick was married in Holland, to a Germanwoman named Elizabeth Catherine Pfort and they had some childrenthere. Emigrated to America 1748. Arriving at Philadelphia on Sep. 5of that year. Dietrick's family consisted of 10 sons and one daughter:viz* 1. Dietrick Jr. 6. Jacob 2. Johannes Leonard 7. John 3. George 8.Pherne - daughter 4.

Peter 9. Conrad 5. Daniel 10. Adam 11. Heinrick (or Henry) I have beenunable to trace quite extensively the descendants of all of these withthe exception of Dietrick Jr. whom I believe to have died withoutchildren. I am searching however for his grave, which may tell meabout that. I am descended from Johannes Leonard - through Jacob L. -James H. - and Jacob. Your line is from Heinrick (or Henry) as follows- Heinrick - Jacob - William - Yourself. You

will see by this that you and my father are 3rd cousins hence you andI are 3 1/2 cousins. My lists are growing voluminous. They alreadyembrace 190 families with about 850 names - all properly placed - butI am not nearly finished yet. Hope to add at least 100 families more -although I hardly expect to be absolutely complete with all thefamilies by the name who have ever lived in AMERICA. I hope that thissilent messenger will find you in good health and spirits. Yoursrespectfully Uzal H. Struble Jr.

Christy Hacket included the following note:

He was the chief builder or contractor in the building of theOdern-heim Reformed Church of Odernheit, Amglan, Rheinland,Pfalz,Germany. This church was finished and dedicated in the year 1739 andhis wedding to Elizabeth Catherina Pfort, daughter of Johann Nichalasand Maria Angelica Haas Pfort on April 21,1739 was the first held inthe new church building. He was not of this town, but, he with hiswife and their first four children re-mained there until coming toAmerica. The family sailed from Rotterdam, Holland and arrived at thePort o fPhiladelphia, Pa. on September 5, 1748, on the ship"Edinburgh".The ship's master was Captain James Russell.

Dietrich and his family remained in or near Philadelphia forsometime and he worked for William Allen (for whom Allentown,Pa. andNew Jersey were named) as a stone mason. About 1752 he pitched hiscamp on Smith's Hill in the old township of Newton,now Hamptontownship of Sussex County, New Jersey. According to Snell's history ofSussex and Warren Counties, New Jersey, that the ruins of the old loghouse in which Dietrich lived were said to be yet visible in 1881.

William Allen owned extensive land in northwestern New Jersey, fromwhom Dietrich purchased 310 acres for 166 pounds on December 17, 1770.This farm was a part of the Budd Tract and was located in the UpperGerman Valley near Bartleyville, New Jersey. Dietrich was an Elder inthe German Valley Reformed Church,which was built in part by him. OnJanuary 9, 1769, Dietrich was one of the witnesses of the will ofMorris Allback, of Roxbury, Morris County, New Jersey.

On October 5, 1784 he acquired, by patent conveyed to him by theState of PA, two hundred sixty six and one half acres. Five yearslater, on March 26, 1789 an agreement between Dietrich and his foursons was drawn for the purpose of Conveying title to the plantation"Struble's Delight" to the sons for consideration of L300 and for theagreement of the Sons to care for Dietrichand Elizabeth in their oldage. The deed for this transaction was drawn April 11, 1789.Northumberland County tax record show that Dietrich paid taxes on566-1/2 acres.

During 1795 & 1796 sons George and John sold their shares to Adamand Conrad with whom Dietrich and Elizabeth remained for the rest oftheir lives. Elizabeth was alive in 1789 when the above agreement wasmade but was not living according to the1790 census. This should placeher time of death either late1789 or early 1790.

There is a question as to Elizabeth's age and the bearing ofchildren into her sixties. The following is a reasonable explanation:In some writings, Dietrich was known as Peter or Peter Dietrich. It ispossible that one of Dietrich's younger brothers Peter (more thanlikely), Joachim, Johann or Matthias also immigrated to America,although no immigration records prove this, and died leaving John,George and Pegga, who were possibly adopted or raised by Dietrich.Dietrich did refer to John and George as his sons in the 1789agreement.

His grave is located in the Pontius family cemetery in Union County,PA, being located about l-1/2 -miles southeast of Mifflinburg. But noheadstone could be found, only his son Conrad's.

Through writings of David Galloway Struble in 1902, a visit to thePontius Cemetery with long time resident of the area, Mr. JohnLine9ln, locates Dietrichts grave as beside the stone of Conrad.

page 143

The upper line of the Budd tract runs through the mill pond in

a course north twenty-six west across the valley. This tract

was taken up by John Budd October 22d, 1714 [Burlington Lib.

fol.], and contained 1804 acres. This was sold 22 June, 1733,

to Wm. Allen. The northernmost farm, of 310 [p.143] acres, on

this tract was bought by DIETRICK STRUBLE, a mason, December

17th, 1770, for Ð166 ($442.66). This farm is now divided into

the farms belonging to the John P. Sharp and the Decue estates.

Dietrick Struble was one of the first elders of the Reformed

church in the Valley. He came from Germany and arrived at

Philadelphia on the 5th of September, 1748. His wife's name was

Elisabeth Catherine and he had at least eleven children, whose

descendants are found in Sussex, Warren and Hunterdon cotinties

and in Pennsylvania. He removed from the Valley to Hampton

township, Sussex Co., and is said to have died in Pennsylvania

at 100 years of age.

(Johann) Dietrick Strubel fled from Alsace, then part of

Germany with his parents to Holland between 1710-1720. The

supposed cause of the immigration were the wars and turmoil in

the palantinate states of Germany at that time. Also note that

the immigration list indicates that several German Reformed

preachers (Rev. Dominicus Bartholomoeus, Rev. John Jacob

Hochreutener, and Rev. John Jacob Leydig) immigrated near the

same time and location as the Struble family, so the hint that

they might have fled due to religious persecution cannot be

ignored. In Holland, Dietrich married Elisabeth (or Elizabeth)

Catherina Pfort and they supposedly had some children there.

There is no further mention of them and no indication that they

came with their parents to America. "Dietrich Strubel" appears

on the passenger list of the "Edinburg" departed Rotterdam,

Holland and arrived Philadelphia, PA, on 5 SEPT 1748.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On 17 DEC 1770, Dietrich Strubel bought the northmost farm of

310 acres of the Budd tract for 166 pounds ($442.66). The

entire tract contained 1804 acres and was originally taken up

by John Budd on 22 OCT 1714. This was sold 22 JUN 1733, to

William Allen. Dietrich Strubel was one of the first elders of

the Reformed church (more evidence of immigration intent) in

the Upper German Valley of New Jersey.

Dietrich's descendants are listed in Sussex, Warren, and

Hunterdon Counties in NJ and in Pennsylvania in 1895. He

removed from the Valley to Hampton Township, Sussex Co., NJ,

and is said to have died in Pennsylvania at 100 years of age.

Johannes Leonard (frequently listed as Leonard) Struble (b. abt

1768) married Mary Longcore and moved to Myrtle Grove, Hampton

township, Sussex Co., NJ. His great great grandson, Uzal H.

Struble lived in Chicago, IL, in 1901 and had done a genealogy

at that time of all the descendants with the exception of

Dietrick, Jr., whom was belived to have died without children.

Jacob Struble (b. 1776 in Bartleyville, NJ and d. 8 APR 1857 in

Conquest, NY), the sixth child of Dietrick, married Elizabeth

--- (b. 1775 and d. 20 APR 1858 in Conquest, NY) settled in

Conquest, Cayuga Co., NY, before 5 MAR 1812, the birth of his

first son, Jacob, Jr. He was a charter member of the M. P.

Church, which is now a private home next to the cemetery in

which he and his family are buried.

Adam Struble (b. 5 JUL 1785 in Bartleyville, NJ and d. 22 OCT

1867 in Milo, NY), the tenth child, married Anna Mary Dean (b.

11 MAR 1790 in NJ and d. 30 AUG 1869 in Milo, NY) on 15 JUL

1807 in New Jersey and immigrated on foot with three small

children to the town of Milo, Yates Co., NY in 1814. See

separate notes on him.

The great grandson of the eleventh child, Heinrick (or Henry)

Struble, Emery R. Struble, lived in grand Rapids, MI, in 1901

and recieved the letter from Uzal Struble, great grandson of

the Johannes Leonard Struble listed above.

Johann was a stonemason and chiefbuilder of the Reformed Church

at Oderheim Rhineland Pfalz. The church was dedicated in 1739,

and his was the FIRST marriage performed there. The inscription

on the church reads "In the year of Christ 1738 this church was

dedicated for the Reformed Congregation and all its builders

and worshipers for God. Lord bless your heritage eternally"

Johann Diederich, Anna and their first 4 children (there were a

total of 13) came to Philadelphia from Rotterdam Holland on the

ship Edinburgh, they crossed the English Channel and waited at

Dover for wind . They arrived in Philadelphia on September 5,

1748. The ship master was Captain James Russell. He took the

oath of allegiance to the Crown of England on the same date.

This information was sent to me by another Struble

genelaogist by the name of Mark Grassman I had found his site

with a lot of Struble genealogy on it, e-mailed him and asked

him if he had any of the histories of the people he had listed,

and this is the result.

STRUBLE. Johann Dietrich was a stone mason and was chief

builder of the Odemhiem Reformed Church in Rheinland-Pfalz,

Germany. He emigrated from Alsace, Germany, in the ship

Edinburgh, from Rotterdam, last from Portsmouth, Capt. James

Russell, arriving in Philidelphia, 05 Sept 1748.

Dietrich worked as a stone mason for William Attle, Esq.

for whom Allentown, PA was named. William Allen owned extensive

land in northwest Jew Jersey; Dietrich purchased 310 acres from

him on 17 December 1770. This land was part of the Budd tract,

located in Upper German Valley, Roxbury, Twp., Morris County,

NJ.

Dietrich was an Elder in the German Valley Reformed

Church, which was built in part my him and completed in 1774.

Munsell's History of Morris County, page 386, states that

Dietrich was one of the signers for the Articles of Agreement

by the members of the evangelical Reformed Congreation and

members of the Evangelical Luthern Congreation to jointly build

the church. The old stone walls were still standing in 1994.

Early records of Morris County, NJ 1740-1799 by Stryker-Rhodda,

page 114, shows on the poll list for Roxbury Twp., May 1776,

that Dietrich (Tetrich) Strubel voted for the delegates from

Morris County to New Jersey's first constitutional convention.

Minutes of the Council of Safety of the State of New Jersey

1777, on page 90 and 91 show on Thursday, 17 July 1777, Tetrick

Strubel, along with several other inhabitants of Morris Co.

appeared before the Council and took the oaths of aberation and

allegiance, as by law appointed.

The date Dietrich sold his farm in German Valley, Morris Co.,

and removed to Newton Twp., Sussex Co., is not known. There are

no deeeds of record to show he took title to land in Sussex

Co., NJ. A tract of 266 1/2 acres of land was conveyed to

Tetrick Strubel by Jacob Grogan in Buffalo, Twp.,

Northumberland Co., PA by a deed dated 16 June 777. The date

of his removal from Sussex Co., NJ to PA is not known, but in

1780 he is listed in the Penn. Archives, Vol. 25, as an

inhabitant.

Dietrich's date of death is not known, but a published

account of his son Peter's death, dated 17 July 1810, states

that his father died in PA the year before at the age of 98. He

is buried in Pontius Cemetery, about one and a hald miles

southwest of Mifflingburg, Union Co., PA along with his sons,

Conrand and Adam. Elizabetha's date and place of death is not

known. She is believed to have died about 1790. - by Harry P.

He may have been born in Albig, Rhein-Hessen, Province, [Germany] [Evangelische Kirchengemeinde, Albig, Landkreis Alzey, Pfarramt, p. 73] or Strassburg, Alsace, Germany

He was a stonemason. He was the chief builder of the Reformed Church at Oderheim, Rhineland Pfalz. The church was dedicated in 1739 and his wedding was the first to be performed in the new church. After the family arrived in Philadelphia, he worked for William Allen for whom Allentown was named, as a stonemason. About 1752, he came to Newton, which is now Hampton Township, NJ. He purchased 310 acres for 166 pounds from William Allen on the 17th of December 1770. The farm was part of the Budd Tract and was in the Upper German Valley of New Jersey. Johann Dietrich was an elder of the Reformed church in the German Valley, which was built in part by him.

The church register of the Odernheim Reformed Church had information that was obtained by Mr. Frederick Langford of Pasadena, California. Much of the information on the Strubles was taken from material from Frederick Langford of Pasadena, CA.

Some information is from the 1830 and 1840 census of Sussex Co., New Jersey.

They arrived from Rotterdam, Holland on 5 Sept. 1748. About 1752 he pitched his camp on Smiths Hill in the old township of Newton, now Hampton township of Sussex County, New Jersey. According to Snells history of Sussex and Warren Counties, New Jersey, that the ruins of the old log house in which Dietrich lived were said to be yet visible in 1881.

Johann Deitrich Struble, by Robert M. Struble

From Robert M. Struble's book:

Conrad Struble Line

Family of Jacob

Deitrich Struble was born in Albig, Rheinhessen, German, on May 15, 1714, the son of

Andreas and Anna M. Gruber Strubel.

His occupation was that of a stone mason. He was the chief builder or contractor in the

building of the Odernheim Refore Church of Oderhhiem [word written in here I can not

make out, Anita McNamer Struble] Rheinland, Pfalz, Germany. This church was finished

and dedicated in the year 1739 and his wedding to Elizabeth Catherina Pfort, daugher of

Johann Nicholas and Maria Angelica Haas Pfort on April 21, 1739 was the first held in the

new church building. He was not of this town, but, he with his wife and their first four

children remained there until coming to America.

The family sailed from Rotterdam, Holland and arrived at the Port of Philadelphia, Pa. on

September 5, 1748, on the ship "Edinburgh." The ship's master was Captain James

Russell.

Deitrich remained in or near Philadelphia for sometime and he worked for William Allen

(for whom Allentown, Pa. and New Jersey were named) as a stone mason.

About 1752 he pitched his camp on Smith's Hill in the old township of Newton, now

Hampton township of Sussex County, New Jersey. According to Snell's History of Sussex

and Warren Counties, New Jersey, the ruins of the old log house in which Deitrich lived,

were said to be yet visible in 1881.

William Allen owned extensive land in northwestern New Jersey, from whom Deitrich

purchased310 acres for 166 pounds on December 17, 1770. This farm was a part of the

Budd Tract and was located in the Upper German Valley near Bartleyville, New Jersey.

Deitrich was an Elder in the German Valley Reformed Church. Which was built in part by

him.

On January 9, 1769, Deitrich was one of the witnesses of the will by Noriis Allback, of

Roxbury, Morris County, New Jersey.

Deitrich and his wife Elizabeth were Baptism Sponsors for Elizabeth, daugher of Conrad

and Anna Maria Risch on May 17, 1772 at the Zion Church in New Germantown, New

Jersey.

According to W. M. Msunsell's "History of Morris County, N. J." page 386 shows articles of

agreement that were drawn up and signed by the representitives of the two churches.

"Whereas we the members of the Evangelical Luthern Congregation, who by reason of the

preaching which we have with Germantown, who by reason of the money expended for the

church and parsonage house are members of Zion's Church, lving in the Dutch Valley,

Roxbury township, Morris County, are willing to build a meeting house jointly:

Be it hereby know to all men that the following conditions are agreed to by the subscribers,

representy both congregations, vis.:

I. Both parties have agreed to build the meeting house at their united expense so that none

of the parties may throw up anything to the other.

II. As the church is built jointly, so it shall be kept by our posterity jointly. The friendship of

both congregations giving us hope that in case of the necessary repairs of the

meeting-house the weaker party will be supported by the stronger.

III. Both parties with respect to public worship shall have an equal right; in case preachers

should meet together, then alternately the one must wait till twelve o'clock on the service of

the other.

IV. For the good of both congregations none shall be permitted but such as are under a

regular church government.

V. Whereas, we do not only concern ourselves for ourselves, but for our posterity also, it is

our will and opinion that none of the parties shall or can sell their right in any way or

manner.

Acted the 4th day of February 1784, which is testified to by Fredrick Dalliker, V.D.M., Henry

Mullenberg, Jr., Deputy Rector of Zion's corporation; Wilhem Welsch, Deidric Strubel,

Conrad Rorick, Caspar Anthon Waldorf, Adam Lorenz, Philip Weise, Christopher Karn,

Leonard Neighbor, Roulof Roulofson, John Schwackhammer, Andrew Flucky."

Deitrich removed to Northunberland County. Pennsylvania along with his sons Adam,

Conrad, George and John.

OnOctober 5, 1784 he acquired, by patent conveyed to him by the State of Pennsylvania,

two hundred sixty six and one half acres. Five years later, on March 26, 1789 an agreement

between Deitrich and his four sons was drawn for the purpose of conveying title of the

plantation, "Struble's Delight" to the sons for consideration of L300 and for the agreement

of the sons to care for Deitrich and Elizabeth in their old age. The deed for this transaction

was drawn April 11, 1789. Northumberland County tax record show that Deitrich paid

taxes on 566 1/2 acres.

During 1795 & 1796 sons George and John sold their shares to Adam and Conrad with

whom Deitrich and Elizabeth remained for the rest of their lives.

Elizabeth was alive in 1789 when the above agreement was made, but was not living

according to the 1790 census. This should place her time of death either late 1789 or early

1790.

There is a questtion as to Elizabeths age and the bearing of children into her sixties. The

following is a reasonable explanation: In some writtings, Deitrich was known as Peter or

Peter Deitrich. It is possible that one of Deitrich's younger brothers, Peter (more than likely),

Joachim, Johann or Matthias also immigrated to America, although no immigration

records prove this, and died, leaving John, George and Pegga?, who were possibly adopted

or raised by Dietrich. Deitrich did refer to John and George as his sons in the 1789

agreement. The limit for bearing children, as I have been able to find out, is fifty-two.

Freidrick Langford was able to obtain the records in Germany concerning Deitrich's

immigration to America, the sale of his property, permits, taxes, in fact, the complete

schedule of events Deitrich went through as well as the other families of the area, that

came to America in that particular group. When obtained, this information will be recorded.

Deitrich was supposed to have live to the age of 101 years. No proof of this has been

located as of this writing. Some Struble researchers believe this is not factual because the

will of Deitrich's son Johann Peter, dated June 19, 1810, stated that Deitrich was already

deceased. A portion of the will is as follows.

(The original will states "late" father Deitrich", thus makeing Deitrich at the most, 96 years

old. note by Robert M. Struble.)

"366 NEW JERSEY COLONIAL DOCUMENTS

His grave is located in the Pontius Family Cemetery in Union County, Pennsylvania, being

located about 1 1/2 miles southeast of Mifflinburg. But no headstone could be found, only

his son Conrad's. However, about a dozen of the headstones wereworn and show no

inscriptions.Through writings of David Galloway Struble in 1902, a visit to the Pontius

Cemetery with long time resident of the area, Mr. John Lincoln, locates Deitrich's grave as

beside the stone of Conrad.
