About Adam Brenneman

Adam was born around 1700 in the Rhine country and died in Conestoga Township in 1759 based on the recording of his will. He is first assessed in 1722 and entered as a "freeman under age" in 1720. In 1729 he was naturalized and became a British subject but in the revolution gave his support to the new republic. On Mar 30, 1730 he received 100 acres grant west of Mill Creek and on Nov 19, 1742 he took a warrant for an additional 150 acres. On Oct 25, 1750, Adam bought 53 acres of land in Conestoga from Abraham Keagy. This was added to the original farm and willed to his son Isaac. It is known that Adam's wife's name is Mary. After his death, she married George Horsh (also written in various documents as Hess,Heiss, & Horsht). She is listed in a deed of 1786. She and Adam had 10 children: Isaac, Magdalena, Henry, Eve, Adam, Anna, John, Barbara, Maria, and Elizabeth.
