About Johann Wilhelm Andreas “Andrew” Zumwalt

Son of Johann Phillip Zumwalt and Susanna (Feller) Zumwalt

Known commonly as Andrew, much information is available online. Here's some info taken from http://www.generationsgoneby.com/getperson.php?personID=I62039&tree=1

Andrew Zumwalt and his younger brother (or nephew) Balthazar (or Balzar) came to America in the ship VIRTUOUS GRACE, commanded by Captain John Bull, which sailed from Rotterdam, the Netherlands and made port at Baltimore, Md (or Philadelphia?) on September 24, 1737.

Apparently Andrew remained in Baltimore for some time. Both he and Balzar took the oath of allegiance to their new country in Philadelphia. According to Jax Zumwalt, "his manumission tax and was granted permission to go to the Colonies in April 1737 along with his wife 'Margaret' and three daughters plus 10-year-old nephew, Balzer ZumWald, orphaned son of his brother Phillip ZumWald, Jr." --

97220 " thus Balzar was his nephew....

Shortly thereafter both were in York Co, Pa, then on the western farm frontier. The deed to his Pennsylvania land was inadvertently destroyed by a daughter looking for some cardboard for her sun bonnet. She couldn't read and the deed was not recorded, thus the heirs were never able to establish their claim. ( York, Penn is located on the old Zumwalt farm.)

The children of his first marriage were: Henry, George, Delia Annie Til, Elizabeth, and Margaret (Peggy). Children of his second marriage were: Christopher "Stuffel", Jacob, Adam, John, Andrew, and Catherine.

Andrew lived at Little York, Pa at least until the death of his first wife, Mary, who died about 1743.) After Andrew had married his second wife (Ann Regina) he moved to Frederick Co, Va in 1752) on or near the Potomac, primarily to secure better medical attention. (He had face cancer.)

All seven sons of Andrew lived in Virginia during the Revolutionary War. Service records of four have been documented. (Christopher, Adam, Jacob, and John) They served under Captain John McCoy in the Augusta County Militia Company in 1778. All seven sons went west to Kentucky at the close of the revolution. Between 1796 and 1806 all sons except George left Kentucky for Spanish Upper Louisiana- later Missouri Territory.

According to notes in the Zumwalt Family Genealogy Forum on Genealogy.com, there is an ad in the 1820 St. Louis Gazette naming the heirs of Andrew Zumwalt, the Immigrant who died in 1764, will probated in Shenandoah County, Virginia on March 6, 1765, Frederick Co Will Book #3, page 256. Few other families have had such a dependable reference. (I will try to find this ad) The will said: Will, 20 October 1764. WILL OF ANDREW ZOMWALD - Dated October 20, 1764

"In the Name of God, Amen; -I, Andrew Zomwald in the County of Frederick and

Colony of Virginia, being weak in body but Sound of memory, (Blessed by God) do
