Family History

Library of Congress Number 79122743 (2nd Edition)

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 contact the Family Historian by e-mail.

Modern technology is wonderful.  In the paper version it is hard to follow a specific family lineage through the generations.  I started  inserting links in the on-line version which will take you not only from the 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 time permits.

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, please contact the Family Historian by e-mail.

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

1976 was 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.

For 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.

Lastly 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 attention.

It has 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 family reunion.

The following 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.

The first 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.

The newspaper 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 and in 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 Steinmetz.

Mrs. Steinmetz 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 1767.

My grandfather, 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.

George Miess ("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 members of 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 father, 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

i

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 them.

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 ours."

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.

Report of the Family Historian


When 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, Ilsa.

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 appreciated it.

While 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.

SECOND GENERATION

 

2.  JOHN MAESS, b. Dec. 18, 1735, oldest son of George Maess, immigrant, probably settled at Kimmerlings, married Elizabeth Kimmerling who may have been daughter of Jacob Kimmerling of Kimmerling Church. (According to Rev. Welker's sketch of 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 his wife Maria Catharine and his granddaughter Anna Barbara Maas.)

Kimmerling's baptism records show these children baptized whose parents were John and Elizabeth Maes.

Buried at New Berlinville (from Mrs. Steinmetz' records) Michael Maze, d. 1841, aged 71 years; Barbara Maze, wife, born 1776, died 1848; John Adam Maze, b. 1786, d. 1866; Mary Mase, wife, died 1860, aged 76 years.

The family that Mrs. Steinmetz was referring to is the Michael Maize 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 Maize one of the administrators of her estate, allowed Prof. Adolph Frantz of Bucknell University to translate it into English, has the list of names shown on next page.

Apparently after the death of John, Elizabeth lived with her son Michael and his family on Michael's farm near New Berlin.  The will of Elizabeth Maze, wife of John, late of Lancaster County, was made May 31, 1802. filed June 15, 1802, and accounts filed Oct. 28, 1805.  To Michael Maze, her son, she willed most all for being so kind to her in her last days. "Michael Myer (Moyer), married to my daughter, has no right to any personal property.

Baptism Letter

"In the year, (as one counts, according to our only Saviour and Redeemer, Jesus Christ), on the 24th day of November, was born to my dear sponsor, John George Mays, citizen of Lachen, and to his beloved housewife, Anna Maria Lena Mays, nee Dippelin, a little son to the light of the world.

"And by me, John Nicholas Mays, legitimate son of the Hon. Jacob Mays, a citizen and custom officer a Speyerdorf, on the 26th day of November, presented at the Holy Baptism, and imparted to him my Christian name, John Nicholas.

"According to the above, dearest cousin and child, thou has been born on the 24th of November, in the morning, a child in sin, by nature, destined to destruction, but through Christ's blood washed clean and pure, because through God's mercy, thou has received the Heavenly Bath; therefore, God, the Highest, protect thee.  From me take this little present.. .thy Redeemer give thee luck, happiness, health and long life, until thy cousin and Godfather, through God's blessing, can give thee the heavenly joy that thou wilt praise and exalt Him forever and ever.  "Such wishes thee thy faithful Godfather.  God knows it comes from the heart."

John Nicholas Mays

Speyerdorf, the 24th of November,

  Anno Domini, 1741.

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.

-5-

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…

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 Reading, Pa.

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

Brendel5 also mentions Polly, but no date.  Miss Winifred Berger of Reading feels sure that Margaret was Polly as Miss Berger's mother, Camilla, daughter of Benjamin b. 1805, used to spend the night with Aunt Polly so that Aunt Polly wouldn't be alone.  As a girl the night noises of the country, etc. did not appeal to Camilla.

 

At Hopeland church, Lancaster County, we find a tombstone: Mary Mays, b. Sept. 28,1815; d. Nov. 29, 1893, aged 78 years, 2 mo. 1 da.—this birth date would correspond with Anna Maria of the above family.

in this county were associated for many years with the history of the earliest settlement
of that State.  When the family of Mr. Mase came to the West, in 1846, they located in what is now Lincoln Township.  They made a claim of 160 acres of land, all of which is still in possession of their descendents.  The mother is yet living on the estate with her son...The mother is 81 years of age.  She is in excellant health and is in as full possession of her faculties as ever."  Forreston, Ogle County, Illinois
