1 "...The early brethren who were holding services in their houses and barns. Daniel Reichard and David Long were active in the ministry and needed help to care for the scattered settlers. AN election was held and young John Emmert was called to the ministry. He was probably the third minister called to that sacred office by the early settlers around the Manor. It appears he was very devout and able young leader. He died rather young and the church sustained a great loss in his passing." Emmert, John (I1798)

4 "Annie (my grandmother), married again but mother nor uncle Ira lived in that home. There was a child, Effie, born to them. We never knew Effie, I've always felt that this was an unhappy marriage and Annie only lived a short time, so that both of my mother's parents died when she was very young." Family: UNKNOWN / Anna Jane Book (F1505)

6 "He was elected to the ministry before he was twenty-two years old and preached faithfully until his death."

"He was a minister of strong conviction against war and intemperance. He was bold and fearless in the pulpit against these evils. He preached relentlessly against human slavery. Many times before the Civil War hes life was threatened. He got many letters threatening to burn his buildings, kidnap his children, or hang him up to some oak tree on his farm, but this prophet of God was not daunted by threats when evil surrounded him.

When John Brown came to Maryland and Virginia and organized his anti-slavery groups, he visited Leonard Emmert - and other ministers of the Church of the Brethren - and laid out his plans to free the slaves from their masters. These pious people hated the system of slavery but to their everlasting credit they refused to believe "that violence and exercise of force were God's ways of correcting evil." These words just quoted were from the pious lips of that saint and servant of God, Leonard Emmert, in his answer to the plans of John Brown."

8 "His father, John Leonard Emmert, made a will and appointed hi sons, Benjamin, John, Leonard and Michael as his executors. John appeared with his brothers to probate the will and duly acknowledge the will as the one prepared by their father, but he filed for record on the same day. September 9, 1084, a seperate bill setting forth reasons why he could not act as one of the executors. Some of the John Leonard descendants, writing about the incident have stated that John Emmert was a Dunker preacher, and have left the impression that he was obstinate in spirit, but such was not teh case. He knew the intent of his good father and John Emmert in his deep spiritual conviction could not agree to settle the estate on any other basis than what he felt was his father's true will and intent, for the will was rather flexible and open to various interpretations.

The will was a rather remarkable instrument in many ways. It designated that each child was to have a Bible but did not set the value, and that was one of the points of disagreement. There were other matters on which the heirs could not agree. One claue in the will stated that Joseph, Leonard, and John were to have a row of apple trees for a space of seven years but the will did not say which row was to fo to each child. That provision gave room for showing a spirit of selfishness and John declined to be drawn into any controversy which would hinder his work as a minister." 
Emmert, John Leonard (I2092)
9 "How long Mary Libby outlived her husband is uncertain.\\; but she probably lived to be again driven from her home by the indians, as no attempt was made to settle her estate. 6 Apr. 1720, a warrant was issued to Captain John Libby, 1-1, to administer upon his grandfather's estate; the will being either forgotten or set aside. The inventory mentioned only the real estate at Black Point - 100 acres of upland, 9 acres of fresh meadow, and 100 acres of salt marsh." Mary (I4342)
10 "In July 1677, he stated that, "the food and pieous report that was spread abroad, into our Native Land of this county, caused your Petitioner to come for this Land 47 yeares agoe, where he hath ever since continued." According to this, the year of his immigration was 1630; but :47 yeares" was probably a slight exaggeration. The "good and pieous report" was soubtless set afloat by Trelawny in his efforts to obtain men to carry on his fisheries, and there can be little doubt that John Libby was sent over by him." Libby, John (I2893)

18 "That in point of morality he took a stand far above his class, ios very evident from a comparison between his accounts while on Richmond's Island and those of his fellow fisherman. Whereas most of them spent their entire wages for spirits and tobacco, he used no tobacco and very little intoxicating drink of any sort; while nearly all of what he did use was wine. He seems to have practiced that quiet, correct, peaceful mode of life which was always characterized his descendants." Libby, John (I2893)
19 "The burning of John Libby's house was recorded in the diary of Capt. Joshua Scottow, who had charge of the Boston Soldiers, as follows: "Sept. 7th, 1675.

22 "When you get the Roll you will see what is probably the most interesting thing of all in the Bentall tree: In about 1290 Margery was left without brothers to inherit the Bentall estate, so the Bishop of Bath and Wells called Burnell, who later became the Lord Chancellor of England, and whose name is in the Bishop's Chapel in Wells to this day, has the slightly awkward problem of a bastard son whom he wants to place somewhere nice. Seeing Margery has a jolly attractive place and could do with a husband, young Burnell comes to tea and takes on the position of Master of the Bentall estate. The happy (we hope) couple then have heirs who are our ancestors, so Bentalls are not really Bentalls but Burnells. Because priests, Bishops and suchlike, weren't meant to have kids, it wasn't widely advertised so Burnell kept the name Bentall. I see Margery married someone else later on... Family: Lord John Burnell De Benthall / Margery De Benthall (F69)

David helped him on his horse and rode beside him back to the house. Forty-five minutes later he called his family around his bed. They saw he wanted to seak and, finally, with a smile flooding his saintly face, he said in quiet tones, 'Oh, what a blessed thing it is to be prepared to die,' and he slept with his fathers." Emmert, Rev.

Regimental History
Eighth Infantry

Eighth Infantry. -- Col., Sidney M. Barnes, Lieut.-Cols.,
Reuben May, James D. Mayhew; Majs., Green B. Broaddus, John S.

This regiment was organized in Estill County in the fall of
1861 under Col. Sidney M. Barnes, the men coming from Estill
and adjoining counties. It engaged in the defense of eastern
Kentucky some time before it was regularly mustered into the
U. S. service.

On Nov. 28, 186 Gen. Thomas, commanding in that section of the
state, ordered it to move from Irvine, the county seat of
Estill County, to Lebanon. It was mustered into service Jan.
15, 1862, by Capt. C. C. Gilbert of the regular army and was
at once attached to the 16th brigade.

In April and May, 1862, the regiment, with other troops, was
at Wartrace and Murfreesboro, Tenn., in Dumont's division, 23d
brigade, Col. Duffield. It moved with Buell to Kentucky and
on Oct. 19 was at Crab Orchard. On Dec. 9, with Matthews'
brigade, it was engaged with the enemy near La Vergne, Tenn.,
with severe loss, a number of the regiment being killed or
wounded. In the battle of Stone's River, or Murfreesboro, it
was under command of Lieut.-Col. May, and the brigade was
commanded by Col. S. W. Price of the 21st Ky. infantry.

In Sept., 1863, it participated in the movements preceding and
leading up to the great battle of Chickamauga, and most
gallantly bore itself through that engagement, the 21st army
corps being at that time under command of Gen. Thomas L.
Crittenden. The loss of the regiment in the battle of
Chickamauga was 79 in killed, wounded and prisoners, losing
its gallant leader, Col. Mayhew.

In that extraordinary assault, called "the battle above the
clouds," the regiment, under its gallant colonel, Sidney M.
Barnes, in Whitaker's brigade, led the way and planted its
colors first on the top of the mountain. During the spring of
1864 it participated in the earlier movements of the Atlanta
campaign, but was held at Chattanooga and vicinity doing guard

On Dec. 28, 1864, it was sent to Bridgeport, Ala., and in
Jan., 1865, its term of enlistment having expired it was
mustered out at Chattanooga, the veterans and recruits being
transferred to the 4th Ky. infantry.

Stone's River after battle report:

Report of Maj. Green B. Broaddus, Eighth Kentucky Infantry,
of engagement January 2.

SIR: I have the honor to make the following report of the part taken by
the Eighth Regt. Kentucky Volunteers in the battle of January 2,
near Murfreesborough:

On January 1 we took position near the crest of a hill, the Fifty-first
Ohio being on our right and the Thirty-fifth Indiana on our left. Nothing
of special interest occurred until the morning of the 2d, when brisk
skirmishing began along the whole line, and continued until about 2
o'clock, when the enemy advanced with infantry and artillery. The battle
soon became general, and, the enemy pressing hard upon the Fifty-first
Ohio, forced them to retire, giving the enemy an opportunity to gain our
right flank and rear, which they lost no time in accomplishing. Both
men and officers of my regiment fought with becoming bravery,
coolness, and determination until flanked on the right and left; and,
seeing no chance to stay the onward course of the enemy, we retired to
the opposite side of the river just in time to save our capture.

Capt. John B. Banton, of Company F, was killed early in the action,
while gallantly commanding a line of skirmishers. We lost 7 killed on
the field, 7 officers wounded, 2 of whom have since died; 69 men
wounded, 12 of whom have since died, and 27 missing.

Very respectfully,

Maj., Cmdg. Eighth Regt. Kentucky Volunteers.

Cmdg. Third Brigade.

Chickamagua after battle report:

Report of Maj. John S. Clark, Eighth Kentucky Infantry.

Chattanooga, Tenn., September 26, 1863.
CAPT.: I have the honor to report that, on 4th instant my regiment, then
under command of Lieut. Col. James D. Mayhew, crossed the Tennessee
River at Shellmound, Tenn., and encamped a mile above the crossing.

On 5th, marched 7 miles; camped near Whiteside's.

On 6th, marched 3 miles, and camped on Running Water Creek, in Dade
County, Ga., where we remained until the morning of the 8th, when we
moved 3 miles, and on the 9th marched over Lookout Mountain, passing
Chattanooga [it having been evacuated by the rebels and occupied by our
troops on the morning of same day], and encamped on the Chattanooga and
Rome dirt road, at a distance of 6 miles from the former place.

On 10th, marched about 6 miles.

On 11th, the Fifty-first Ohio and Eighth Kentucky Regt.'s marched in
advance, each furnishing three companies as skirmishers. The skirmishers
of my regiment, which I commanded, advanced on the left, and those of the
Fifty-first Ohio, under command of Lieut.-Col. Wood, on the right of
the road. We drove the enemy, consisting of two regiments of rebel cavalry,
through and beyond Ringgold without very stubborn resistance, and with no
loss on our side in either killed, wounded, or missing, and with a loss to the
enemy of 1 killed and 3 or 4 wounded. My skirmishers behaved gallantly.

From 10th until 15th nothing important characterized our marches. We
remained in camp on Chickamauga Creek, 2 miles beyond Crawfish Spring,
from the 15th until the morning of the 18th, when our camp was shelled by
the enemy, whereupon, and in obedience to orders, we retired 200 yards to
the rear and occupied a commanding position in an open field. After
skirmishing with them until late in the evening, and being relieved by
Twenty-third Kentucky Regt., we marched to Lee and Gordon's Mills,
where we rejoined our division and camped for the night.

On the morning of 19th, the battle opened briskly on the left. My regiment
remained in position until 1 p. m., when it was ordered into the fight. After
engaging the enemy for five or ten minutes, I discovered that the Fifty-first
Ohio, which occupied a position on our right, was flanked by the enemy and
was retiring. After that regiment had retired 20 or 30 paces, I ordered the
Eighth Kentucky to fall back, which it did, and in as good order as possible.

We retired 400 or 500 yards to the rear, fighting as we retired to an elevated
position on the Ringgold and La Fayette road, where we formed on the left
of the Third Wisconsin Battery, and remained during the night.

The casualties during the day's battle were as follows*:

In the actions of both days, both officers and men of the Eighth Kentucky
behaved with great coolness and bravery. There are probably two or three
who did not conduct themselves as soldiers should, and these men I propose
to deal with the first opportunity. I would make special and favorable
mention of some of the officers and men of the regiment, but my report
should have been handed in before this, and I have not the time now.

Engaged on 19th: Officers, 23; enlisted men, 297.

Engaged on 20th: Officers, 18; enlisted men, 245.

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

Maj., Comdg.

Actg. Asst. Adjt. Gen., Third Brigade, Third Division.

41 1849 Cholera deaths. Egypt, OH is just a few miles West of Minster, OH. (From Minster Historical Society timeline.)
Frank & Rosa Grieshop shared stories with their granddaughter Sharon Pohl in 1981 when she researched the family tree as her 4-H genealogy project. They remembered Frank's Grandmother Caroline Huesing Grieshop who was orphaned during the 1849 Cholera that killed all her family in the Minster/Egypt area when she was just 7 years old. Caroline was then adopted in by an Erps (Earp) family in the area and she later married Bernard Grieshop whose family had helped make coffins during the Cholera attack.

«b»Cholera of 1849«/b»
The year of 1849 will ever be remembered in the history of Minster. The cholera epidemic swept over the entire country, taking thousands of lives. In some cases whole families were carried away within a week.

The plague descended upon the people of Minster in the latter part of June. During the months of July and August the people died so rapidly that the bodies were collected twice each day and buried in four tiers in two trenches each seven feet wide on the west portion of the cemetery. No funeral arrangements, no religious service, no weeping relatives to follow, just wrapped in a plain shroud, placed in a crude wooden box and taken by some surviving friend to the last resting place.

The neighbors would then burn all personal effects in hopes of halting the disease. Any surviving children were taken in by the nearest friend or relative and raised as their own. Thru this, original family names of many were changed, which accounts for the disconnected history of some of our citizens. The cholera took over 250 lives in a short time from Minster.

«i»ntblAmsterdam & the Cholera Epidemic The cholera epidemic of 1849 resulted in a high number of deaths. In an account by Charles Boesel (1814-1885), he stated that from a population of about 700 people, there were 150 who died of the disease. Church records of St. Paul and St. Peter's Churches indicate that 122* people died from St. Paul Church and between July 27th and August 18th, 50 from St. Peter's. These were the only two churches in town at that time. A few of these deaths were attributed to scarlet fever, typhoid, or malaria, however the majority of the deaths were caused by cholera. These victims were buried in a mass grave in the village cemetery on Herman Street across from St. Paul Church.

A simple sign, such as a piece of white cloth hung on the front door, indicated the presence of another victim or victims. The deceased were buried four tiers deep in two trenches, each seven feet wide. The collected coffins were buried twice a week by Joseph Bussing, a man who lived three miles west of Minster, with the aid of a Mr. Rumping and two other helpers.
