Anna Maria Spangler

Her birthplace is listed by Catharine F.B. Mason as Tulpehocken, Pa.

BIRTHPLACE: Information sent to T.Mason on 16 Apr 2003 by. "THE MARYLAND EMMETTS AND SOME DESCENDANTS" find Mary and Jacob Doudel, and the relevant work is nicely sourced. It implies that they were of York, Pennsylvania but this, it would appear, in marriage." On URL [HYPERLINK http://www.geocities.com/myerstownpa/history.htm ] it states, "An Indian trail led from the Susquehanna River to what is now Myerstown and it's surrounding area of Jackson Township. Populated by the Susquehanna Indians, these trails became wide and well beaten and were used by the early settlers as they explored the wilderness. This area was referred to as TURPY HOCHEN, meaning "land of the turtles". White men, though few in number, began to settle along the Tulpehocken Creek around 1700. As early as 1707, a settlement is recorded for this area; naming it Tulpehocken. Many of these settlers were Germans who first immigrated from the Palatine area of Germany to New York and then emigrated from New York to here since they were treated so badly there and this area reminded them so much of their "homeland" along the Rhine River. Casper Wistar of Philadelphia, a representative of William Penn, owned 10,000 acres along the Tulpehocken Creek, deeded out tracts of land to the German settlers as of 1735. Even though the area was referred to as "Tulpehocken Settlement" he referred it to as "Fells Manor"." One of these ettlers was Valentine Hergelrode, who purchased 249 acres along the Tulpehocken Creek. Later, to become the father-in-law of this town's "founding father", his piece of land is very significant to the town's history. During the French and Indian War, Hergelrode's home was one of many homes used as a refuge from the Indians, thus as the townspeople refer to this home as "the old fort".

(2) 1810 Census Fayette Co. Ky 11 02010-30010-04

Information from Bill Walters or Normal, Illinois to T.Mason on 15Apr2016:
Google Online sources:
1) On the extensive online account of the Henry Clay Building, Jordans Row, in Louisville, now on the National register,, there is note of a sale or lease transfer, on 4 October 1807, which says, this sale is not to interfere with the right given by the trustees of Lexington to Engelhard Yeiser to convey water from the public spring.
2) In a speech by Henry Clay 19 June 1819, he seems to be objection to the way in which a group of Lexington Bank Commissioners were selected; one of these  (see footnotes in the book) is Engelehard Yeiser;
3) An 1828 act of the Kentucky General Assembly to incorporate the Lexington Railroad Turnpike Company, to build a turnpike or rail road from Lexington to the Green River; Englehard is one of the Commissioners named;
4) The Early History of Lexington notes that Englehard gets 54 votes for Lexington Trustee; He didn't get the most votes - I don't know if he was elected.
5) On 30 May 1825 Henry Clay, U.S. Secretary of State, writes to thank a number of citizens of Lexington for their counter attractions - one is E. Reiser;
6) In 1816 Engelhard contributes to the Fayette Hospital in Lexington;
7) The Louisville Gazette 1809 contains a brief note that he wants a person who knows currying - as I understand it this is finishing leather
8) the 1806 Lexington City Directory lists Englehard as a tanner (his father was also a tanner).
