Generation: 3

  1. 4.  Abraham Brubaker was born 1723, Hempfield Township, Lancaster, Pennsylvania (son of Hans John Brubaker and Anna); died 1804, Near Luray, Page County, Virginia.

    Notes:

    Occupation: Plantation Owner
    Abraham Brubaker, pioneer came to the Valley from Pennsylvania in 1733.

    Abraham and Barbara Long Brubaker lived near Luray. Their house was burned in an IIndian Attack of 1758.

    Hans third son was Abraham. Hans had purchased two tracts of land containing 500 acres in 1735 located Near Luray, Virginia. Abraham purchased this land from his father and probably was married and living in Virginia before his father died. (taken from Brubaker and Their Lands by Landis H. Brubaker)

    Abraham and his wife Barbara BOUGHT the town of Woodstock from the heirs of Jacob Miller. This has brought on a lot of confusion for Brubaker researchers. Some find it difficult to distinguish if his wife was Barbara Miller or Barbara Long. At this time I chose to believe that is Barbara Long.
    Abraham was one of the original colonist into Massanutten Colony in now what is called Page Co., Virginia, along with his wives father Paul Long.

    On April 20, 1774, Abraham Brubaker was granted to the Vestry on Beckford Parish two adjoining lots in the Town of Woodstock, each lot contain one half acre of land, for the purpose of building and supporting a church for public worship, a church yard, and a place of burial of the dead. On one of these lots in the center of the town was erected a log church, and in this building Mr. Mahlenberg officiated. (Taken from the Archives of theEspiscopal Church in the Diocese of Virginia)

    Notes:

    Occupation: Farmer

    Hans John Brubaker (probably a Mennonite Came to America about 1710, on September 17, 1717 he and Christian Hershey jointly took out a warrant for 1000 acres of land situated in Hempfield township, about 3 miles west of the present Lancaster city. This portion of land was surveyed on October 14, 1717. In 1718 he and Christian Hershey divided the above tract into two equal parts by running a line east and west, Brubaker taking the southern part, on which he built the first grist and saw mill in Lancaster county.. The mill property being located on the little Conestoga Creek, at what is now called "Abbeyville" It is not certain that John Brubaker was married when he came to America, however, On May 23, 1728, John did marry his wife, Annally (maiden name is unknown), at this time he sold 150 acres, of land including the mill property, to Christian Stoneman.{taken from Biographical Annals of Lancaster Co, 1903 Vol. 1 page. 352}

    Deed Abstracts Index - Lancaster County Pennsylvania Deed Book A -K 1729-1766 reads:
    A-196 - 8-31-1750: 1 a.; Christian Stoneman, Hempfield twp. to Society of Mennonites, John Jacob brubaker & Ulrick Roadt trustees (prior property of Hans Brubaker & w. Ann to Stoneman 1729)

    Deed Abstracts indexed Lancaster County Pennsylvania Deed Book A - K 1729 -1766 reads:
    D-240 - 1-9-1755: 150 a., on Little Conestoga Creek; 3 dtrs. of Christian Stoneman, deed as in D-235 to John Stoner (prior property of Hans Brubaker and w. Ann to Christian Stoneman)



    The money for the 1000 acres --100 English pounds, or $486.50--was paid on November 6, 1717. The patent was granted on November 30, 1717. Traditions says that this Hans Brubaker was a cousin to the one who obtained the patent two days earlier for 700 acres. This tract was one and one-have miles long (east to west) and a little over one and one tenth miles wide (north to south). The following year, Hans Brubaker and Christian Hershey by common consent divided the land into two equal parts by a line through the center parallel to the northern and southern boundaries. Christian Hershey took the northern half, and Hans Brubaker, the southern half. However, no legal papers were made for the division of the land until 1729 and 1733.

    Hans Brubaker built a mill near the place where Columbia Avenue now crosses the Little Conestoga Creek. However, he later expressed the desire to sell the mill because he observed a tendency in the milling business to make a man dishonest. In those days money was scarce, and the miller took the toll, a certain percentage of the grain, for his pay for grinding the grain. This continued for many years, and the miller usually kept his share without any questions asked.

    Christian Hershey died in 1722, and left a widow named Oade, two sons and a daughter. They gave Hans Brubaker a release for his 500 acres on May 12, 1729, but it was not recorded in Lancaster until 1739. Of course, Lancaster County was not established until August 1729. The deed for the 500 acres was probably made so that Hans Brubaker could give a clear title for the Mill property. In fact, on the following day, May 13, 1729, he gave a deed for 150 acres of land which contained the mill. For these acres he received L160, ten and two-thirds times as much as he had paid for the land twelve years earlier.

    Hans Brubaker was one of six men appointed to lay out a road from the Susquehanna River to Christian Steinman Mill and from there to "Daniel Cookson's" at the head of the Pequea Creek. Hans was appointed constable on May 26, 1724 for the Donegal district and in August of 1729 for Hempfield Township. Most of his duties probably consisted of simply giving information to the sheriff about conditions and problems. Hans bought other tracts of land at other locations amounting to a total of more than 2,000 acres. Most of these tracts remained in the family after his death. The buildings at what was probably his homestead were destroyed to make way for a housing development about 1972, and no trace of them exists today.

    As late as 1732 he was still assisting the provincial authorities to maintain law and order in the county. Serving as constable had little political significance. The situations probably was that his friends in the community were he resided recognized him as a man of character and of a disposition to preserve peace in the community, and thus recommended him to be appointed by the courts both at Chester and at Postelwaites. Because of the well known attitude of Mennonites towards office - holding and participation in affairs of government in these times, the acceptance of an office by Hans Brubaker might tend to brand him as an irreligious.

    He died April 18, 1748 of an illness. Where he is buried is not known. He made a will, dated February 14, 1748, but he failed to appoint executors at that time. This he later did, and witnesses signed the document, but Hans did not sign the addition. The will was presented to the court and was placed on record. The court appointed administrators, not executors--namely Anna Brubaker, the widow; Daniel Eshelman, a neighbor; and Jacob Brubaker, his second son. At the time of his death Hans, the oldest son, was probably twenty nine years old, and the youngest child was four years old. Although Hans died in 1748 and his sons took charge of their lands deeds were not given for the different properties until 1765. This was probably done after Hans widow had died and all of the children had become of age. (taken from The Brubaker and Their Lands In East Hempfield Township, Lancaster Co. Pennsylvania by Landis H. Brubaker reprint 1993)

    Hans Brubaker was born circa 1690, and left a will on 14 February 1748 at Lancaster County, Pennsylvania which reads:

    This day being the 14th day of February 1748 has John Brubaker in his Sickness ordered and caused his testament to be drawn if the Lord should call him off from this world and he should depart from his wife and children that it might be know what his Will is between his wife, the elder and the younger children. At the first he orders that his wife Annally Brubaker after his Departure Shall live on the place or plantation where he lived and died on but the land shall be and remain the portion for two of his sons. The land where she as his relict after his decease is to live on shall not be alienated whether she should after his decease marry again or not. No Body shall have power to drive her out of the house or from the place for the little children shall be brought up on the place and the land shall be valued by honest men and also all his other lands shall be reasonably valued and justly be divided amongst his heirs that all his children concerning their fatherly estate shall have equal shares and none shall have any preference before the other and the eldest shall not have a greater share than the youngest. Also all the moveables shall likewise only be divided and as it is mentioned above that their mother shall live on the half share in the plantation and bring up the little children on it. The half of the land that is two hundred of the four hundred shall remain a portion to one of her children to which she will give it. The other two hundred together with the half of the plantation shall be bequeathed unto my son Jacob Brubaker and shall be duly valued and of the three hundred acres near Sebastion Ryers which are surveyed at the old Right. Hans Brubaker my eldest son shall have hundred and fifty acres the other hundred and fifty acres shall be bequeathed to one of the younger children and sons of the last wife one of her children and shall all be duly valued as above mentioned.
