About Rev. John Kreider

Research: Michael Kreider, 1742 - 1816 Michael Kreider was born on month day 1742, at birth place, Pennsylvania, to John Jacob Kreider and Elizabeth Margaret Kreider (born Mumma). John was born in 1717, in Ittlingen, Heilbronn, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. Elizabeth was born in 1720, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, United States. Michael had 2 siblings: Barbara Kreider and one other sibling. Michael married Salome Sarah Kreider (born Carpenter). Salome was born in 1753. They had 5 sons: David Cryder, Jacob Cryder and 3 other children. Michael married Susanne Kreider (born Carpenter) on month day 1763, at age 21 at marriage place, Pennsylvania. Susanne was born in 1742, in Earlville, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, United States. They had 5 children: Sarah Immell (born Cryder), Susan Elizabeth Kreider and 3 other children. Michael lived in 1790, at address, Pennsylvania. Michael passed away in 1816, at age 73 at death place, Ohio.

The KREIDER Lineage A Kreider lineage has been established by Edward H. Kryder originating at Buempliz just south of Bern SWITZ to Colmar, Upper Alsace, France. In this lineage Jacob born 1649 the eldest son of Baschen Gruetter was not mentioned in his father's 1688 will and has been assumed to have died without issue.

The Jacob and Hans Greider in the 1715 census of Ittlingen, Kraichgau, Baden, Germany have usually been assumed to be brothers with Jacob being older than Hans, but researchers have never found the origin of the brothers in SWITZ or anywhere else.

Here we propose that Jacob did not die in Alsace, and that Hans is the son of Jacob by a first marriage about 1675. With Jacob (age 66 in 1715) being too old to emigrate to America, this allows us to connect the Kreider lineage from Buempliz SWITZ through Colmar FRANCE and Ittlingen GERMANY with the emigration of Jacob's sons Hans, Michael and Jacob to Lancaster County PA.

I don't know what happened to Peter Krider, I think he might of been one of the 200 people scapled/kiled at Fort Vause or carried off as an prisoner, but you never know...It was sevreal years later that Neely family settled on the ground. I did find reference to an Chirstopher Krieder though, around the area of Philidephia, but didn't save the data. I ran out of ink on my printer to catch this kind of stuff right now. In short I have to re-coup on things around here at the house. Nearly all of the Kreider's first came through Lancaster Co., Pa...the Menonite Historcal Society did an whole article on them, I'm guessing without looking at that data, most likley in Ilitenburg..or something like that in Germany. You can get the publication from them on the Krider/Critor family out of the area. Should be no problem. Whose the James Larkins wounded at Bacon Ridge, I must not have him. Only connection they have down in S. Carolina would be with the John Lawson/Susan Rogers/Calhoun family, whom I have followed from Massachuestss southward.... If there is far as I know it ends up there with the estate being called "Red House". Now this may include some of the Christopher Gist people also. I have information off the Menenonite church of the Rev. John and Salome Krider moving to the area of Western Pa...a little bit, but haven't come across the booklet as of yet. If I find that, I'll post it. I would assume that John was an brother to Peter, not an parent to Catherine. Catherine I think was one of Peter's orphaned children, as stated in Kegley's. Va. Frontier. I haven't searched the Kruder name so have no data on them either...I was wondering though if it wasn't an early form of "Gerlinger"...though I think maybe they were the "Galigher" in Tenn to Ky perhaps. I don't know if this "Ruckman" is an Larkin either though I am thinking an early George Lawson went down in Va by the German's as possibly "Gottscalk" (1748)...simply because one of the first to Connestoge Creek was an known George Lawson from King William County, Va...and this is my hubby's line, and I believe the Josiah there later becomes the "Ramsey" family..and Rankin of my dad's mother's side. They orginally were perhaps part of Nathaniel Lawson and "Causey's Care" or "Clear" in Jamestown Plantation areas and look to been mariner's. They got to Pennsylvania in the French and Indian WAr because the "Quakers" would not defend themselves, not wanting to bear arms because of their religion, so it was those out of the Williamsburg, Va and Massachusett's area fought that war primarily. Hope this helps some, you know...whom ever "reigns" in an area, that's what the legacy of them appears to have went down in history as...or so I've seemed to picked up so far.
