EDUCATIONAL INTEREST OF POTTSVILLE.

The elaborate public school system, of which Pottsville is
to-day so justly proud, has been gradually evolved from some very
crude beginnings three-quarters of a century ago.
The earliest date of a school at Pottsville which can be
fixed with any degree of certainty is 1811; when the people at
Pottsville, Brown's Farm, Flowery Fields, Bull's Head, and Min-
ersville met and chose a place northeast of the shoe factory,
near the present residence of Colonel B.N. Hyde, as a location
for a log church.
The now venerable Abraham Pott, who was a pupil in the first
school ever taught north of Sharp mountain, says that in this
building, then known as the Repp church, and later as the Dutch
church, the first school in this county was taught, in the German
language.
But little is known of the school or teacher, except that the
first teacher was an old soldier, who had served in the German
cavalry, and was expert in fencing with the ferule.
The next was taught by John Hoff, an Irishman about seventy
years of age, who was a clerk a long time for John Pott. He
taught school about 1818 in a log house on the island, where Mr.
Atkins's furnace now stands, and was also the first teacher in
the log school-house where the Centre street female grammar
school building now stands. This log house, built in 1819 by
John Strauch, at the direction of John Pott, jr., was the first
school-house built within the borough limits, and the only one
for about fourteen years. The following persons taught in the
old log school-house in those early days, viz.; John Randolph,
John Gray, John Downing, Joseph S. Silver, Charles Loeser and
John Porter. These gentlemen taught in the order named, through
a period of about seen years, according to Charles Silliman and
James Shoemaker, who were schoolboys in those days.

=================================



In 1827, by reason of the increase of population, a more con-
venient system of local government was found desirable, and the
subject of incorporating a borough was earnestly discussed. The
inhabitants of Pottsville wished to have the town as then bounded
incorporated into a borough and given the original name of the
town, in honor of one of its oldest and most prominent families;
but their Mount Carbon neighbors wished to have their town in-
cluded in the borough. They also insisted on dropping the name
the town had always borne, and styling the new borough Mount
Carbon, in allusion to its local resources. Much ill-feeling was
engendered by this discussion, but the borough line was finally
settled to exclude Mount Carbon, and this town was incorporated
by act of the General Assembly opposed by Governor Andrew J.
Shulze, on the 19th of February, 1828. The corporate name given
by the act was "the burgess and inhabitants of the town of Potts-
ville, in the county of Schuylkill." The first borough election
was held at the house of John Weaver, on Monday, May 7th, 1828,
when Francis B. Nichols was elected chief burgess; John Pott,
assistant burgess; Daniel Hill, high constable; Samuel Rex,
clerk; and Jacob Kline, John Strouch, Benjamin Thurston, David
Phillips and Samuel Brooks, councilmen. The first meeting of the
council was at the house of George Shoemaker, May 9th, 1828. The
Assembly of 1831 put a little more of that soul of wit called
brevity into the name, and erected the town of Pottsville into a
borough styled the corporation of the borough of Pottsville.
The principal borough officers have been as follows: Chief
Burgesses.-George Shoemaker, 1829; F.B. Nichols, 1830-32; John C.
Ernst, 1833; Jacob Seitzinger, 1834; John P. Shinkle, 1835, 1836;
Benjamin Coombe, 1837; Jacob Reed, 1838-40; Daniel Klapp, 1841;
John M. Crossland, 1842; William F. Dean, 1843; Andrew Mortimer,
1844; Charles W. Clemens, 1845; Jacob Reed, 1846, 1847; B.T.

Oddly, she is listed with son Lewis, 7, fits, but also Cleo, 11, which would imply a marriage before 1909. Thomas, her husband, is in the 1910 census with his parents and is listed as single.

Muskegon Log Booming Company

Muskegon was the largest center of lumbering on lower Michigan's west coast. From the 1850's to the 1890's an immense amount of timber was floated to this port down the Muskegon River and its tributaries. In 1864 the Muskegon Booming Co. was formed to sort the logs and raft them to the mills. Here at the upper end of Muskegon Lake was the great storage boom where the logs, each identified by its owner's log mark, were sorted into pens as fast as they floated in. They were then chained together into rafts which were towed to the mills by the company's tugboats. In thirty years the company delivered over ten billion board feet of logs.

POOR, LEVI MORSE (I197)
 
176 from Charles D. (Chaz) Andrews:
Before she died, I talked with my mother about Mame Keenan & about my grandmother's (Sarah Elizabeth Quay) middle name. My grandmother's middle name was given to her in honor of the woman who raised Mame. So it's definately Alexander & Elizabeth who raised Mame. I also have further proof of this since Alexander & Elizabeth are buried right next to Mame's grandmother in Phoenixville. Mame was left with her uncle because her father (George A. Keenan) moved to California to be a horse trainer after her mother (Annie Graham--I can't find her at all, this is from my mother's memory) died in childbirth. George later remarried and had children who later visited Mame when my mother was a child. I found George in Phoenixville, listed with his mother Margaret, who came over as a widow from Ireland through New York with some grown children. I found him in later censuses in California with his ever growing family out there. Margaret Keenan (Mame's grandmother) is buried in Morris Cemetery right next to Alexander and Elizabeth Keenan.

Driebelbiss Cousins of America

It was at the historical spot of Germantown, Pennsylvaia, that John JacobDreibelbis started his labors in America working for John and CasperWister, prominent businessmen of Germantown, Pennsylvania. It was hereand with these folks that he labored for the next eleven years, he nodoubt having been a redemptionist who had to work for the folks that hadsubscribed to his cost of passage to come to America.

Atter working for the Wisters for eleven years Casper Wister gave himfifty acres of land that he settled on, this land having been located inwhat was then Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, but which today is knownas Richmond Township, of Berks County, Pennsylvania; it was on this smallproperty that John Jacob Dreibelbis built his first log cabin home andother necessary farm buildings in 1743.

After migrating to this newly acquired property, Mr. Dreibelbis appliedto the Colony of Pennsylvania for addiontal land, so that on March 1,1750he secured a warrant for fifty acres(volume 24 of the Third series ofPennsylvania Archives). On this land Mr. dreibelbis erected his firstbuildings which were located near a large spring of water which theIndians had named "Dreibelbis Springs."

Records of land purchased by John Jacob Dreibelbis over a period of yearsindicate that it totaled approximately four hundred acres of RichmondTownship fertile soil.

During the time that he lived near Fleetwood, Pennsylvania he also hadsecured addiontal land from Anthony Lesher,which is located inRuscombmanor Township, Berks County,Berks Co. Pennsylvania; and with thisland including the land that he had acquired through Warrants, etc., hebecame the largest land owner in the district paying a tax of thirtypounds sterling per year to the Colony of Pennsylvania, and wasconsidered the largest taxpayer in the community.

Some of the land that was owned by John Jacob Dreibelbis had been theproperty of Thomas Penn, a son of William Penn,, who had acquired it at atime when the city of Reading, Pennsylvania had a population of onlythree hundred and fifty inhabitants.

The farm that John Jacob Dreibelbis had owned and on which he had madehis home, is located about one half mile east of the borough ofFleetwood, Pennsylvania, then known as Coxtown; and it was on this farmthat John Jacob Dreibelbis had lived and labored, ever striving to getahead, for he had managed so well and worked so hard in the short spaceof time that he had lived after he had bought the place (1743-1761), thathe reached the distinction, as we have stated before, of having been thelargest taxpayer and landowner in the district, and having accomplishedall this in the short space of eighteen years, as he was called home tohis reward on February 8, 1761, when but a young man of forty-seven yearsof age.

John Jacob Dreibelbis had left a family of seven Children when he died,and even though we have searched every available record thinkable in thevarious localities where Mr. Dreibelbis had lived during his lifetime, wehave not been able to come across any record of any marriages, as we feelthat he may have had two wives; so all that we do have concerninganything like any matrimonials is the notation in the Scholl history,page 197 of that history, where they state the Chritina Scholl had beenmarried to a Dreibelbis, and as John Jacob Dreibelbis had been the onlyDreibelbis in that section at the time, we assume that he was thatDreibelbis; then also there is on record in Book "Z-32" at thePennsylvania Historical Society's office,Pa. Historical Society, at 13thand Locust Streets, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the baptism of a MartinDreibelbis and a sister of this Marten Dreibelbis, both children of JohnJacob and Barbara(Burkhardt) Dreibelbis; these noted are printed onclippings that were pasted in this Book, "Z-32".

appreciated. And I hope the above helps someone else. Good hunting,

this is from a site about Senator Mathew Stanley Quay of weternPennsylvania:

http://www.bchistory.org/beavercounty/BAHF/Quay/Quay.MSQuay.html

Matthew Stanley Quay was not a native born Beaverite. His father,Anderson B. Quay, was a Presbyterian preacher. One of his early churcheswas in Dillsburg, a small town in York County, and it was there thatMatthew Stanley was born September 30, 1833. When he was 7 years old hisfather came to Beaver as the pastor of the Beaver Presbyterian Church.

Quay's earliest known American ancestor, his great-great-grandfather,James Anderson, came as a youth from the Isle of Skye, Scotland, in 1713.He came to Chester County, Pennsylvania, and was canny Scot enough to geta job with the prosperous miller and to marry his daughter. Their oldestson, Patrick, was said to be the first white child born in SchuylkillTownship. Patrick was a captain in the French and Indian War and a Majorin Anthony Wayne's regiment in the Revolutionary War. Later he was amember of the Pennsylvania Legislature. It is possible that thisgreat-grandfather had a strong hereditary influenceon Matthew Stanley.His great-great-grandfatlier John Quay came from the Isle of Man toCanada. There he married an Indian girl. Their son, John, Jr., came toPennsylvania. His son Joseph Quay married the daughter of PatrickAnderson, and their son Anderson B. Quay became the father of MatthewStanley Quay.
