In 1976, "Aunt Catharine" , who was our family historian at the
time, and others on the committee published a family history book. I've
scanned it into my computer and reproduced it here. Due to limitations of
scanning technology, the formatting of the scanned text is not exactly the same
as the original. Since we are currently working on the third edition, I am
posting all of the Second edition without correcting any of the scanned pages
but will correct and continue to format as time permits.
In today's world we must be careful to guard certain personal
information, so I have removed the month and day of birth from anyone who is or
may still be alive. I've decided to err on the side of caution by removing
this data from anyone born after 1900 unless a date of
death is given. If you find information that is
incorrect in this book or if you have a date of death for anyone still shown as
being alive, you can submit revisions here.
If you think you may be a member of the family, but are not sure, you can

listing of a person's child to that child's place in the book, but also back
again to the parent. This will allow those in later generations to trace
their line back through the generations. But because I am devoting my
efforts to the Third edition, this function is incomplete and will be updated as
As of 12/2/07, all the new information to the end of the
Second Generation has been updated and is as complete as we have. We have
added a new chart to page 4 which gives addition information about the Maize
branch of the family. If these changes have helped you to find more information
about your branch of the family and can shed more light on our whole family,

At some point in the future, I hope to include a graphic
representation of the tree with links to the book, but for now, my main
objective is to publish what we already have.

Preface to the Second Edition
indeed an historic year. Not only did we celebrate our nation's two hundredth birthday, but
within our family an event of major significance took place. The farm homestead
settled by our original ancestors in the mid 1700's, which had remained in
the family name since then, was sold at public auction. We trust that the new owners
will be as good stewards of the land as our family has been for over two hundred and fifty years.
1975 also saw the television showing of Alex Haley's personal It has generated
considerable interest in family
history and family pride. Even before this showing we
realized that the original edition of the Mace-Mase-Mays-Maze Family History,
compiled in 1959 by Catharine Mase and Cora Mays, should be revised to
include the new generation that has come on in the last seventeen years.
Those who had been young children in 1959 are now grown, married, and having families of their own. Sadly, some of the older ones
have passed on.
At the 1976
family reunion of resolution was passed to form a committee to revise the Family History. Your
committee has accepted the challenge and spent countless hours and miles making
personal contact with the various family branches. We have also attempted to add as much
newly uncovered information as possible on the older generations.
standardization, the committee decided to include only two generations of name change from the
marriage of any Mace, Mase, Mays, Maize woman. This was deemed
necessary in order to keep our family
book from being overfilled with other surnames. By this procedure she
will see her grandchildren listed. The
family historian's master book will include even more generations
where information is available. We recognize the
dynamic nature of the family. For this reason we have adopted a
loose leaf binder cover in order to make periodic updates without having to
issue an entirely new book.
we would like to thank everyone for their excellent cooperation
in supplying information for this book. In any work of this size inadvertent mistakes,
omission, and errors can occur. We would appreciate your calling them to our
been a rewarding experience to serve in this capacity.

Preface to the First Edition
At the wedding of
my cousin Edith Eleanor Mays, daughter of Thomas C. Mays (Family No. 152), Aunt
Alice, Charles W. and I discussed family reunion because I confessed that I didn't
know the bride since she was grown. Several weeks later my brother, Marvin, his wife
Fannie and son Victor took my parents and me to see Charles. Tentative plans were made to hold a Mase
week or so Charles contacted Katherine Mays Miller of Stony Creek Mills, which resulted in
a meeting held there attended by a number of the Reading family and final plans were made to
hold a Mase-Mays reunion. Later we met some Mace
people and thus it grew into the Mase-Mays-Mace reunion with many variations in spelling on the record.
officers were: Pres. Charles W. Mase, V. Pres.
Katherine Mays Miller, Sec. Catharine A.
Mase, Treas. Marvin W. Mase, who
contributed a free treat to the children at one of the reunions, Historian, Cora C. Mays of
Reading. Games were to be directed by
Mattie E. Mase Brimmer but Mother was ill and Mattie stayed home to care for her.
item tells us that Esther M. Mase directed a children's program, recitations,
etc.; the officers serving at the first reunion were elected to these respective offices
addition Catharine A. Mase was elected as assistant Historian.
Miss Cora C.
Mays, received in about 1951 a basic outline of the family from Mrs. Mary Owen Steinmetz,
genealogist of Reading. She was a daughter-in-law of the Rev. J. W. and Mary Margaret Mays
wrote "Owing to the various spellings of the name it is a little hard to tell just when the family came to
Pennsylvania. In Vol. 17, 2nd Series, page
391-392 (Par. Archives?) among the
list of foreigners qualified at Philadelphia, Sept. 17, 1753, we find John George Maisch
(John Jurg May). This I believe to be the ancestor of the Mays family." (In the Strausburger & Hincke books, at most
Historical Societies, can be seen the
copies of the original signatures of many of the ship's male passengers. John George Maisch is the
signature and the 'John Jurg May' is the way the English clerk wrote the name.)
At another place
Mrs. Steinmetz referred to the list of the 'Duke of Wirtenburg' arriving October 16,
1751. This ship's list also has a signature similar to the one in 1753. On this
ship's list we find a passenger by the name of Michael Deis or Tice. A man named Michael
Tice was chosen as guardian for some of the children after the death of George Maess in
John Henry Mase, claimed that the family came to Pennsylvania in the 1730's. Sketches in the Montgomery
Berks County History members of the Mays
family claim a similar date, I believe. But the baptism letter of
Nicholas Mays, born November 24, 1741, and the church
records received from Dr. Fritz Braun signify
a later date.
("Mess") born in Bertenan, Germany, November 20, 1704, passenger on the ship
"Pleasant" arrived in Philadelphia, October 11, 1732. He settled in the "Hole"
in the Monroe Valley, north of Fredericksburg. One of his sons was killed by the
Indians in June or July 1756. This boy, John George Miess, and his
family belonged to the Moravian church and are buried in the old Moravian
Graveyard at Fort Sugar, a mile east of Lickdale, Lebanon County, Pa.
In 1950 my father
and I visited the late Nevin W. Moyer of Linglestown, a descendant of George Miess,
after reading Mr. Moyer's story of this family in the "Pennsylvania Dutchman" May 15, 1950. For our family also had a story of a boy being shot by the Indians and Mr. Moyer
assured us that he felt we were of one family. The people in this family were also
the Reformed Church when they came to this country and later
generations went back to the Reformed denomination after the Moravian influence in the Monroe
Valley had died out. The later John Swanger of this Mease family said that my
Aaron W. Mase, looks exactly like his grandfather Philip Mease who is buried on
the Bethel cemetery in the Monroe Valley.
Among the notes
of Dr. Thomas J. Mays we find that he had visited John Milton Mays of Philadelphia, who in turn had
recently been visited by William Snyder of
Lebanon. William Snyder had told
Milton Mays of hearing that Nicholas Mays had settled near Fredericksburg
and had been a teamster in
Washington's army. Land office records at Harrisburg
show that Nicholas Maes bought land from Henry Newfer (Neifer) or his estate
in Heidelberg Township, Lancaster County (now Lebanon Co.); George Maes
bought land from Frederick Shinefelt following the same procedure as did
Jacob in completing the survey of the land applied for earlier by warrant by
John Tinges. Children's baptisms are also recorded in the Schaefferstown
area. It seems to me that these stories point to a relationship to this
George Miess (now Mease and Meese) who arrived in 1732 and possibly account
for the claim to the earlier migration date.
Up to the time that the will of George Maess, d. 1767,
was found in Lancaster County records (possibly by Mary Owen Steinmetz) I
believe that some of our family thought that Nicholas was the ancestor of
this family. We believe that part of the farm where Uncle Ulysses S. Mase
lives is where George Maess settled.
We have this story: Aunt Agnes (Mase) Reist, who is
ninety this month, says that she was told that the flowers that bloom each
spring in the field southwest of Uncle Lee's house are from bulbs brought
from "Em Aulda Lond" (the old country). After years of pasturing and a
number of ploughings the Grape Hyacinths, the double Daffodils (Die Oshter
Blumma) and the Narcissus are scattered over a large area, some several
hundred yards from where Uncle Henry Mase remembered the marks of the
foundation of one of the early houses, and my father says he and Henry
helped to close the well.
Although Grandpa Mase and others claimed German
ancestry, the records from Mrs. Steinmetz showed that George Maess came from Lachen-Pfeyersdorf, Switzerland. So, in my search for a uniform spelling of
our family, I wrote to Stads Museum, Zurich, Switzerland (address from Dr.
Arthur Graeff, when we visited "Die Wunnernaus" program on my father's 80th
birthday in 1956). From Zurich they sent my letter to Dr. Fritz Braun, Auf der Pirsch, Kaiserslautern, Germany.
From Dr. Paul Guyer, Stads Museum, Zurich, Switzerland,
I learned that there is no such place like Pfeyersdorf in Switzerland, but
that the community of Lachen-Speyerdorf belong to the district of Neustadt
in the Palatinate and before very long Dr. Braun sent me these records from
the Reformed Church Book of Lachen-Speyerdorf, Germany, exactly as he found

In May 1957, Dr. Braun visited the United States. Mr.
Roy Dundore of Lebanon brought Dr. Braun to our house. He told my father
something like this: "It is amazing after a separation of 200 years that you
still have the singing voice like the natives of Speyerdorf." "They still
spell it "Mees" out there," he said, "and the pronunciation is similar to
I wish to thank those members of the family who helped
us with materials to assemble this genealogy; Milton Brown, Lancaster
genealogist; also Mr. Walter J. Yingst, Wilmington, Delaware, genealogist
for Yingst and related families.
Cora C. Mays taught me how to use courthouse records
and we visited those in Lebanon, Dauphin, Lancaster, Chester and
Philadelphia counties for wills and deeds in order to find names listed. The
Land Grant offices at Harrisburg, Fackenthal Library at F. & M. College,
Lancaster, and the Lebanon County Historical Society were visited frequently
for information; also the genealogical department of the Penna. State
Library. Of special use was Brendle's History of Schaefferstown.
Mistakes and omissions are unavoidable on a first
attempt at compiling data for a family history of this kind. Your
cooperation in notifying us of corrections to be made will be appreciated.
Catharine A. Mase
of the Family Historian
Dr. Fritz Braun visited our home in May 1957, he
invited us to come to Germany.
My father felt
unable to make the trip but I assured them both that I would do so if possible some day.
In the early part
of the summer of 1975, I attended a class of "Pennsylvania German Culture" taught by Dr. C. Richard
Beam, Professor of German at Millersville
State College. Dr. Beam has spent
quite a bit of time in Europe. He showed us slides of the country and the areas with
similar dialects as ours.
Dr. Beam had also
taped several programs for his share in the Pennsylvania German program aired every
Sunday on WLBR, of Aunt May and Uncle Lee telling of their
childhood, etc, on the farm.
When Dr. Beam
learned of my desire to visit the area where our family came from in Germany, he
encouraged me to go as soon as
possible as Dr. Braun was ill and not expected to
recover. Already, by that time, Dr. Braun told me that he was too
ill to help me if and when I came.
When, on the spur
of the moment, I invited Uncle Lee to go with me I learned that he was quite anxious to do so. On
contacting his doctor, I was assured that
there was no reason he could not go.
Unfortunately I was unable to arrange my work
immediately, but finally by October 20th we were on our way.
An earlier date would have been better weather-wise.
My cousin, Jennie Reist Funck, offered to have Aunt May visit with her until we came back. My niece, Esther Mase, took care of my house and the 'Dutchmaid' business, and another niece, Elizabeth
Brimmer Smith, of Bethlehem, took care of my car
and she and her husband took us to New York to the Kennedy airport, as well as arranging for a wheelchair at Kennedy and at
Luxemburg for Uncle Lee.
At about 9:45 P.M. we left New York, stopped at Iceland, and landed at
Luxemburg the next day where we stayed at the Alpha Hotel the first night in Europe.
The next day we rented a Simca car from the Prestige Co. and were soon on our way toward Lachen-Speyerdorf. Uncle Lee said with
relief. "Nau. kenna mier gae." (Now, we can go.)
The first day we met Horst Brownsweiger, a waiter at the Waldmoor restaurant. The wrong turn took us by the farm of Anton Ricker, who had a large dairy, a Harvestore silo, and Laval milkers and we learned that in the room between his house and barn was where he made the schnapps to send to California. This was how he disposed of the large pile of potatoes near his
building, which had aroused Uncle Lee's curiosity.
Farmer Ricker mentioned a Mees guest house at Waldmoor, but I was unable to locate it and we found a place to stay for the
night near Homberg, there met Emil Sohn and Frtiz Marx.
The next day we lunched at Kinsbach and I was accompanied by one of the guests to the bank to exchange some traveler's checks, while Uncle Lee visited with some of the people at the guest house and restaurant.
Thursday night was spent at Willie Seeker's guest house at Hoch Speyer.
Friday, by way of Neustadt, we arrived at Lachen-Speyerdorf, two villages divided by the Speyerbach creek which flows into the Rhine River at Speyer.
First, to the Speyerdorf Church, met Herr Reichart, a retired teacher, writer, and organist, and his daughter,
Herr Reichart rode with us to the home of Hedwig (Mees) and August Hofman. In her home we met her Aunt Maria (Vetter or Fetter) 89, from Frankfort, with her attorney son and his wife and daughter. They were there for the burial of the husband and father, Mr. Vetter. Maria was a Mees and her mother had also been a
Mees, married to a Mees. Heddi and August live in the home where her grandparents and great grandparents had lived and farmed, less land now apparently but raising their own vegetables and fruit.
Then to Wilhelm and Maria Mees, a retired plumber, with two sons and a large operation, at the time making steel banisters for a
large building, also aluminum storm windows, etc.
We participated in the Communion service at the Speyerdorf Church on Sunday, visiting the cemetery in the afternoon with Heinz Anheuser (relative of the Budweiser Beer family). We saw many Mees tombstones.
Monday, Heddi, August and Herr Reichart took us to the Burgemeister (mayor) office where we were presented with a 1200 year history of Lachen-Speyerdorf written and assembled by Herr
Reichart, also several other mementoes of the April '75 celebration.
Heddi made lunch for us and then they took us to Klόngenmuenster, mentioned as an earlier Mees residence. But no records were there of before the 1820 freedom from the French invasion.
Heddi also gave one of August's overcoats to Uncle Lee as we
had lost his earlier. It was quite cool and damp and he
we had stayed at the 'Waldmansburg' at Neustadt on Friday
night, we changed to the 'Flugplatz' in Lachen the next
six nights of our stay in Lachen. In the mornings we rode around the country and from Monday on when Heddi treated us in her home for the noon meal, so we were also entertained for the
noon meals at the homes of Wilhelm Mees, Frieda Mees
Hofsess, and Conrad Mees, who took us
sightseeing to Speyer. Conrad also took me to see the old Lachen Church being renovated, and he took me to see Emil Heigle, a former Burgemeister, who has had a life hobby
of writing history of the area, contributing a great deal to the
1200-year history assembled by Herr Reichart.
Eric Mees and his family had us on another day for an evening
meal, consisting of cold cuts, ham and various kinds of
sausages, all from their own butchering. The others served us meat, potatoes in various forms (salt
water, mashed, and/or filling),
butter noodles, salads and lettuce, cauliflower, coffee or tea and always their own wine.
At four o'clock cake and coffee were served, and all of them had relatives coming in to meet us.
I think it was Peter Mees, brother of Conrad and Wilhelm, who we met for the second time at Bauman's barbershop. He was
disappointed that we had not called at his home but there was no more time.
Freida Hofsess told us that her grandparents and Mees
families before them lived in the home across the street from the Lachen Church. She called it the Mees
homestead. She and Eric Mees, the
postman and farmer, are closely related.
Uncle Lee was impressed with the ease of conversing with them. (One example: they still say grundbeera for potatoes while the High German word is gatuffla.) Another enjoyment he had was seeing the women ride bicycles, especially amazed at the ease of the older women using this transportation.
Several people inquired as to whether Uncle Lee was born there. He remarked that he felt quite at home among them and recently said that if his eyesight were better he would like to go again.
When we left Lachen-Speyerdorf on Friday afternoon we headed back toward Kaiserslautern. Because of the November 1st religious holiday we were unable to visit the Heimatstelle Pfalz until Monday and then Dr. Karl Sherer led us by car to the home of Dr. Braun, after which Mrs. Braun led us back to the main highway and we came to Holberg and spent the night once more at the Frau Kiltnau guest house. She called Emil Sohn and Fritz
Marx by telephone and they came to see how we had fared at Lachen-Speyerdorf. Along with Dr. Braun they were happy to know of our cordial reception in our ancestral hometown.
We came back with many of their voices on tape and several pictures (the weather was cloudy most of the time) but Aunt May sees a similarity between Wilhelm Mees and Aaron C. Mays, son of Thomas C. Mays.
Back to Luxemburg after a two weeks car rental instead of a week as originally planned, back to New York, having to call the
Smith's at Bethlehem because of a delayed and changed
telegram, which seems was the greatest
error on this delightful trip. We spent the night at Bethlehem and
after a leisurely morning there while the
family went to work, we came back to my home about 3:30 P.M., November 6th.
Later we had supper at the Funck's
in Annville and brought Aunt May home.
And so ended a trip for Uncle Lee and me which seemed like "mae glick os ferstundt" (more luck than common sense) as we had no great difficulties and a great deal of unplanned help.

According to stories handed down by the families, George Maess (signature on

plot of ground recently owned by a descendant, Ulysses S. Mase, in
Heidelberg Township, Lebanon County (formerly Lancaster County). This plot
is supposed to have contained 20 acres.

shows that George Mehs, Jacob Kimmerling and Jacob Ebrecht applied for

that church in the book, "History of the Lebanon Classis of the Reformed Church, "Jacob
Kimmerling's daughter Eva Elizabeth was married to s John Maas. When Jacob
Kimmerling died in 1771 his daughter had died and his only survivors were

family of New Berlin, Pa. near
Lewisburg. It is unfortunate that this revelation was made after the
covers for this Family Book had a ready
gone to the printer, since the name Maize should have been included. An old
family Bible written in German, which was in the possession of Miss Clara
Maize Benfer until her death, when Mr. Frank

it into English, has the list of names shown on next page.

Notes on First Evangelical
Church at New Berlin
The inland village of New
Berlin, Pa., played an important part in the early days of our Evangelical
History The history of our denomination is the history of New Berlin written large.
In the spring of 1805, Jacob
Albright, John Walter, and George Miller made an evangelistic
tour to New Berlin and vicinity. Michael Maize
entertained the triumvirate and was the committee on arrangements. An appointment was made for John Walter to preach in the schoolhouse at New
Berlin the formative elements of the Evangelical Church were
crystallized into a permanent
form. A mile and one-half east of
New Berlin, the first German camp
meeting in America was held, 1810, by
our Evangelical people. It was located on the farm of Michael Maize, the
first class leader west of the
Susquehanna River. Here the first church lot was purchased in
1815... Union Seminary has continued
in unbroken existence to this day, now functioning so
enterprisingly as Albright College at
Michael built a good barn in 1819. It is still in active use
and is in good condition. On one side, at the top, is a stone on which is
inscribed "M-MS 1819" 2 3 4

that Margaret was Polly as Miss Berger's mother, Camilla, daughter of Benjamin

did not appeal to Camilla.

Morris Township which is now included in Lincoln. He was born Oct. 18,

His parents were born in the same portion of Pa. that he was and were there
married. They were both of Pennsylvania-Dutch origin and were brought up in

they located in what is now Lincoln Township. They made a claim of 160

on which his parents settled in 1846. He was born in Lebanon Co., Pa., March

married in this township. On Nov. 1, 1853, Ellen Meyers became his wife. She
was born in Washington Co., Md., July 8, 1835, and is the daughter of Jacob
