Re: Conrath Thomas Lind/Lint b c 1730

In Reply to: Conrath Thomas Lind/Lint b c 1730 by Karen Lint of 118

My Lint line is Conrad LINT>Henry Jacob>Melchior>Daniel>William>Leah Lint Moody>my grandfather>my mother>me. The info I have here was given to me by Carl Lambert. I wasn't sure if you had it.
       208. Henry Jacob LINT, born 05 February 1758 in Lancaster, Lancaster Co., PA. He was the son of 416. Conrad Thomas LINT, Sr. and 417. Magdalena (Ukwn) LINT. He married 209. Catherine BRICKER Abt. 1779 in Lancaster Co., PA.
       209. Catherine BRICKER, born Abt. 1760 in Hamilton Twp., Franklin Co., PA. She was the daughter of 418. John BRICKER, Sr..
Notes for Henry Jacob LINT: Henry Lint is one of the most prolific [with 11 surviving children] of Conrath Thomas Lind's sons & yet he is the least researched. I believe a major reason is because Henry [being the 1st son in difficult times] didn't have the leisure of acquiring an education. He had to work to help support the family until it was too late for him to go back to school. Henry remained illiterate the rest of his life. Being illiterate is a burden often carried on by the chldrn, aggrivated by the cold hard facts of poverty. The descendents of Henry were mostly poor & worked in Somerset's coal industry. It wasn't until the 1900's that they broke out of the cycle. There are some descendents you will find in SW PA today are not far from that cycle though. The younger siblings on the other hand, except for Jacob & Rebecca, were able to acquire an education & trades. Their chldrn in turn were able to raise above the survival cycle.

Generation No. 9
       416. Conrad Thomas LINT, Sr., born Abt. 1730 in Palatinate, Germany; died November 1803 in Paint Twp., Somerset Co, PA. He was the son of 832. Christian LIND. He married 417. Magdalena (Ukwn) LINT 1758.
       417. Magdalena (Ukwn) LINT, born Abt. 1732 in Palatinate, Germany; died February 1814 in Paint Twp., Somerset Co, PA.
Notes for Conrad Thomas LINT, Sr.: Conrath Thomas Lind d. Nov 1803 & is buried near Paint Creek, Paint twp., Somerset co., PA. His w. Magdalena "Mary Ann" d. 1813 is buried nearby. It is believed they are buried on their old property. The sailing ship that Conrath, Johann & Georg came to Philadelphia from Rotterdam on was a "Snow Ketty" which is a classification of vessel & not the name. The ship's Captain was Theophilius Barnes. The manifest of foreign passengers qualified at the Court House in Philadelphia on the16th of Oct. 1752. The 3 Linds on board signed their names as follows: Johann Michel Lind, Georg Philips Lind, and Conrath Thomas Lind. A History of Bedford, Somerset & Fulton co.s, PA, published in 1882 stated " the parents of Christian Lint Sr (ie., Conrath Thomas Lind) came from Germany & were sold for their passage money. The mother labored 6 yrs to pay, the father probably not so long". Per a letter by Mrs. Weigle (Lenore Hartig), a descendant of John Lint & Elizabeth Walters, our Conrath came to Somerset co., PA between 1792 & 94. This is partially confirmed by the marriage of Christian Lind & Elizabeth Lichtenberger on 10 Dec 1793 in Berlin, Brothers Valley twp., Somerset co., PA by Reverend Giese. The attendance records of the same church show Melchoir Seese & his w. Sophia also in attendance 1 Jan. 1788 [he as a Deacon]. This indicates that the period of Conrath's family moved may have even been before 1792-94. Conrath shows up on the 1796 tax records for Somerset twp., Somerset co., PA, but some of his heirs remained in the Lancaster, PA area; reference an1803 record of estate. Recorded in 1806 Somerset co., deed book vol., 3 page 698, was an agreement signed by all of Conrath's chldrn & heirs which would grant Magdalena "Mary Ann" Lind their property for the remainder of her yrs. The significance of this document is that 3 of the signers were illiterate & signed their names with a X (ie., Henry Lind, Jacob Lind & Rebecca Lind). The lawyer or witness to the signatures had written in their names next to their X's by spelling their names LINT. The other 5 signers were literate & signed their names; John Bricker, Melchoir Seese, Conrad LIND, John LIND & Christian LIND. As in the previous example, the name LIND rapidly changed to LINT. A reason for this is when the anglicized ear hears the letter "D" spoken in German it sounds like a "T" or "DT". The Swedes who came to Amer. named LIND didn't have the same problem, & kept the LIND spelling. Almost all the Germans who immigrated as LIND changed to LINT within 2 generations. Despite folklore about Lint families being descendant from Swiss or Swedish stock & claims of Jenny Lind (from Sweden) being a cousin, all the early LINDs who later became LINTs were from what is now Germany & they spoke old german. Those who could read & write did so in old German. A primary reason for Germans of the palatinate to immigrate to Amer. during the period was to escape religious persecution, overcrowding, & economic chaos resulting from wars. Most were of the Reformed Luth. faith. Conrath Thomas Lind took his oath of allegiance in Lancaster co., PA 13 Jun 1777. In the summer of 1994 we made an exciting discovery by connecting what was then refered to as the "Peter Lind" branch of Lints in the US to their ancestors in Graben, Germany. No connection has been made between that branch of Linds & Conrath Thomas Linds branch. It is the 1st time (to my knowledge) though that a positive connection between the US & Europe has been established with any Lint branch. That "Peter Lind" branch is now refered to as the "Valentine Lind" branch after it's patron who raised his fam. in Graben, Germany about the 1630 time frame. In the summer of 1995 David Diehl of Jacobus, PA proved the connection between the "Henry Lind" branch of York co., PA & Franz Josef Lind of Fachsenfeld, Wurttemberg, Germany. We followed up on this & have taken that branch back to about 1525. As of this entry we do not have a positive connection between the 3 Linds who got off a "Snow Ketty" in Philadelphia in 1752, but after the Henry-Franz Josef connection was made, I plotted over 700 Linds [1510-1850] on maps of Germany. The plottings revealed 4 distinct groups of Linds; in the Wurttemberg area, in the Pfalz-Rheinhessen area, in the Mosel-Hunsruck area [where I live 6 mo.s out of the yr], & in an area near Aachen just west of Bonn. Name patterns are positive for the families in the Rheinhessen area but no positive connection has been made yet. Research will continue again the summer of 1996 & appropriate updates made. The "Jenny Lind connection" which is folklore in several Lint branches plus a public statement made by the Bishop Gillian Lint (as quoted in a newspaper article) is under investigation with queries pending with Swedish archives in Stockholm. Conrath's military service has been confused by past researchers. If you consider that Conrath Thomas Lind was at least 45-50 during the Rev. war & his son Conrad was 16 the choice of which Conrad was who can be confusing. If you studying the average ages of some of the early rev. war conscripts though it's easier to believe it was the son Conrad that was active in the rev. war & not the father. Although there is more than 1 Conrad Lind enumerated on the rev. war rolls which tells us that they both probably served in different capacities. A Conrad Lind served under Captain John Muller's 5th Co. of the PA 8th Battalion. Was it the father or the son? Conrad Lint is listed as a member of the 6th Bat. Militia of Cumberland Co., & recorded on the payroll Aug. 28, 1793. Notes for Magdalena (Ukwn) LINT: Mary Ann or Magdalena (which is it) or is it one & the same? Depending upon who's research you read it could have been either. Most documents in her later yrs [wills, etc.] refer to her as Mary Ann. Mary Ann is simply an anglicized form of the more germanic Magdalena. I believe from the documents & research I've seen thus far that Conrath Thomas Lind's w. was of german descent & they either m. in Germany & came over together on the Snow Ketty in 1752 into Philadelphia or they met & m. after they came to Philadelphia. The ships records do not list any of the female passengers, only the males so there isn't any way of determining her point & time of entry. She was definitely b. in Germany though & I believe began her life as Magdalena. Once she came to Amer. her name gradually changed to the more anglicized form of Mary Ann. F

More About Sophia LINT: Baptism: 01 January 1763, First Reformed Lutheran Church Of Lancaster, PA Burial: Seese Cem, Paint Twp., Somerset Co., PA Notes for Melchoir SEESE I: He came to Amer. as a small child with his father settling in Upper Salford Twp., Bucks Co., PA. He served in the Rev. War & several enlistments in the Cumberland Co. Militia. His war record is given in the PA Archives with his name spelled in several ways. His records show serv. from 1779 to 1782. After the Rev. he & Sophia settled 1st in Elk Lick Twp. & later in Quemahoning (now Paint Twp.) Melchoir was a teacher on his farm & is the only Seese listed in 1800 census for Somerset Co., PA. Both Melchoir & Sophia are buried in a family graveyard on land owned in 1978 by Robert H. Seese. This burial plot also contains members of the families Weaver, Custer, as well as Seese. Melchoir is buried on Jonas Weaver farm. We spoke with Mr. Robert H. Seese, who gave us directions to the property. Ellis Berkebile purchased the property from Robert H. Seese around 1988. To reach this gravesite, take SR 601 south off SR 56. Go to top of the hill passing Mt. Zion Luth. Cem. on the right & turn left onto Spruce Run Rd. Go 0.6 miles to farm on right. Cem. is on far left property line behind barns in a grove of trees at the top of a hill. Mrs. Berkebile is the great-granddau. of Jonas Weaver, for whom the farm is named. They now board horses & still farm the land. Melchoir's grave was marked by the DAR in 1930. Both Melchoir & Sophia are buried in a forgotten old Cem. located along a tree line of the McCreary & Galbreath farms along Spruce Run Rd. Melchoir arrived in Amer. with his father Jacob Seese on a ship named "Betsy" which arrived in Philadelphia on 19 Sep 1765.

              iv.       Conrad Thomas LINT, Jr., born 05 May 1765 in Lancaster, Lancaster Co., PA; died 30 November 1805 in Somerset Co., PA; married Catherine HAUPT 1785 in PA; born 1768 in Lower Macungie Twp., Lehigh Co., PA; died 1826 in Somerset Co., PA.
Notes for Conrad Thomas LINT, Jr.: Lived in Somerset Co., PA. Good information on Conrad Thomas Lint Jr. is not to be had. Some of the best data was gained from a composite of census's from Somerset Co., PA covering 1800, 1810, & 1820. Although Conrad Thomas Lint Jr. d. in Nov. 1805 his w. Catherine held the little family together over the next 21 yrs until she d. in 1826. Also on 30 Nov. 1805 in Somerset, Somerset Co., PA, Conrad's estate was filed as #28. [copy in my files] When Conrad d. in 1805 apparently his w. Catherine either didn't want to be executor of his estate or was incompetent [grief stricken?]. In either event, on 30 Nov 1805 Catherine was "renounced" as executor of Conrad Lind's will & Christian Lint [Conrad's bro.] & Christian Kugel were appointed as administrators of the will. Alex Ogle & Gillian Lichtenberger [this is either Christian Lint's w. Elizabeth's father (probably) or bro. (possibly)] were appointed as bondsmen. Reciept's from disposition of the property were $554.34 of which only $160.93 remained for the heirs to share after all the bills were pd. The widow Catherine received 1/3 [ie., $53,64] & the rest was shared equally among the 5 chldrn each recieving $21.45. A note indicated that son John Lint bought $25.90, & son Jacob Lint bought $2.50 in goods sold at public venue.

              vi.       John LINT, born 21 February 1771 in Bethel Twp., Lebanon, PA; died 10 February 1855 in Greenville Twp., Somerset Co., PA; married Elizabeth WALTERS 12 October 1793 in Somerset Co., PA; born 25 June 1775 in Hagerstown, Washington Co., MD; died 05 April 1841 in Milford Twp., Somerset Co., PA. Notes for John LINT: John went to visit Greenville twp., & while he was there suffered a stroke & died. His remains couldn't be returned home because they were frozen & snowbound. When I interviewed John Noah Lint in 1991 he told this story & I was led to believe that John was ultimately buried at the Reformed Church near Pochahontas, PA. No marker remained since it was destroyed by a farmer. I believe now that the story was true, John Lint is in fact buried in Boyt's Burial Ground. This small plot containing only 13 tombstones [4 of them chldrns] is located on the farm of Josia J. Boyts in Quemahoning twp., Somerset co., PA about 4 mi.s east of Sipesville on Rte 311 above the Texas school house. More About John LINT: Baptism: Klopp Ref.

       832. Christian LIND, born Abt. 1700 in Palatinate, Germany. Notes for Christian LIND: This individual existed but to date absolutely nothing is known about him except that following the customs of the time his name must have been Lind. It may possibly have been Linde or Lindt but I have found after several yrs of research in Germany that this is highly unlikely. Because of the social, political, religious, & military turmoil at the time, this individual could have been born almost anywhere in what we know today as Germany. Considering the time period in which his sons came to America though, there is a high probability they were born in the Palatinate of Germany. My research of the past couple of yrs has isolated about 4 groups of Linds in Germany. More About Christian LIND: Religion: Reformed Lutheran
Children of Christian LIND are:

Notes for Johann Michael LIND: The sailing ship that Conrath, Johann and Georg came to Philadelphia from Rotterdam on was a "Snow Ketty" which is a classification of vessel & not the name. The ship's Captain was Theophilius Barnes. The manifest of foreign passengers qualified at the Court House in Philadelphia on 16 Oct 1752.
