106 According to Henry Z. Jones, Jr. (1(1135)), "the German origins of Philipp and Martin Zerbe were at 6209 Kettenbach (12 km. n. of Bad Schwalbach)" in the commune of Minster, Germany.

D. Curtis Hester (10(1)) wrote: "It is legendary that the Zerbe family is of French origin, being natives of France and moving from Lorraine to Switzerland, and later to the Palatine. Their known ancestral home being at Kettenbach, Germany. Fragmented records of the family begin there in 1643...."

[Martin Zerbe descendants.FTW]: "Fragmented records of the Zirbe/Zerbe family begin in Kettenbach, Germany in 1643. It is legendary (sic) that the family is of French origin, being natives of France and moving from Lorraine to Switzerland, and later to the Palatine after the Edict of Nantes was revoked."

In an article entitled "Finding the Ancestral Home of a Palatine Forefather: The Case of Martin Zerbe," (source 103) Henry Z. Jones, Jr. wrote: "...Martin Zirbe(n) was the earliest direct ancestor of the immigrant found at Kettenbach. This Martin Senior was buried there on 8 Mar 1694; his wife Anna Elisabetha or Elbet survived him, as the records show she was buried at Kettenbach on 8 Jan 1703..."
Zerbe, Martin (I5826)
107 According to his tombstone transcription (151(12)), he served from 1861-1865 in the GAR in the Civil War.
Zerbe, Joseph (I5736)
108 According to Mason Spelts Zerbe, Sr.'s records (source 46), Phillip "bought and lived on the old homestead adjoining Hetzel's church. He was granted a warrant for a tract of land from the Commonwealth of Pa. May the eighth, 1798, called 'Good Intent' to be held in trust for the Lutheran Congregation, and upon which tract was built Hetzel's church."

The 1790 census (191(5)) shows Phillip, Adam, Andrew and Benjamin Zerbe living in Pine Grove. Phillip, Benjamin and Adam appear on the same census image (191(8)), suggesting that they lived near each other. I suspect that they are this Phillip and his brother Benjamin. Adam and Andrew may be unknown brothers of Phillip and Benjamin. -- Mark Zerbe

Administration of the estate of Jonathan Bragg, who died at the "Castell", was granted to Capt. Roger Clap, and the inventory was taken by Nicholas Baxter and Eliezer Hawes. It mentions looms, cloth, &c. and is so much like that of Eliezer Hawes, taken a short time after, that we may infer the two young men practised weaving. Roger Clap, in his "Wonder Working Providences", speaks of the godliness of Baxter.
Eleazer Hawes had a shorter earthly career than his father and brother. He was killed in the memorable Sudbury Fight, 21 April 1676. For an account of the battle, consult Bodge's "King Philip's War". On p. 231 the author gives the names of the slain, and adds: Suffolk Probate furnishes the name of Eleazer Hawes of Dorchester. These, with Capt. Samuel Wadsworth and Capt. Brocklebank, make in all 21 slain. p. 452: "The heirs of Eleazer Hawes, 24 Oct., 1676, received nine shillings which was due him." p. 222: Capt Samuel Wadsworth with his company of seventy men, some of them mere boys, stationed at Marlborough, went to the relief of Sudbury. The Indians came creeping in there April 20. Wadsworth's men had marched through Sudbury the evening of the 20th, on their way from Boston to Marlborough, and even then a great body of the enemy was lying about the town and its approaches. He reached Marlborough at midnight, when he heard that the Indians had gone to Sudbury. He turned hastily back. --- Miserably tired from marching, they were drawn into ambush by 1000 Indians. The English fought from a hill for four hours. But the Indians set fire to some woods to windward and forced them from their poisition. In the retreat they killed all but a few who escaped to a mill.
"Inventory of the estate of Eleazer Hawes of Dorchester who was slain in ye warres, 21 April 1676, taken 16 May 1676, by James Humphrey, John Bide (Bird) Robe Seawell, Stephen Hoppin". The amount was small, but among things enumerated was a house with land and cattle. Obadiah Hawes acknowledged its correctness and was appointeed administrator, 23 May that year. (Gen. Reg. Vol. XX: 341-353)
Eleazer Hawes m. 23 Feb., 1669-70, Capt. Clap officiating, Ruth, b. 27 April 1646; d. in Dorchester, 16 Aug., 1672, dau. of Edmund and Hannah Haynes (Gen. Reg. V: 400). They were of Springfield, where he d. in 1646, and his widow m. George Lankton (Longhton). Both had d. before 1678. (Consult Hampshire Pro. at Northampton, Vol. I: 193.) Enos Kingsley (married Sarah, sister of Ruth Haynes) acted as attorney for Obadiah Hawes admr. of Eleazer's estate, and plaintiff contra John Langton of Farmington, Ct., exor. to George Langhton, sen., deceased. The action was to recover property belonging to Ruth Hawes, alias Haynes, dau. of the widow Haynes. Kingsley obtained judgment for the plaintiff.
Eleazer Hawes left no male decendant, but his name was perpetuated through several generations. It is doubtful, however, if many who bore the name knew the tragic history of the first Eleazer.

In June and July of 1630, as many as a thousand immigrants arrived in America on one of eleven ships that made up "Winthrop's Fleet," named for Massachusetts Bay Colony Governor John Winthrop. All of the ships departed from Yarmouth, Isle of Wight in England, and landed at Salem, Massachusets about two months later....Four ships set sail on April 8, 1630: AMBROSE, ARBELLA, HOPEWELL, and TALBOT. Seven ships set sail some time in May: CHARLES, JEWEL, MAYFLOWER, SUCCESS, TRIAL, WHALE, and WILLIAM & FRANCIS

In his will, dated 26 January 1639[/40] and proved 3 March 1639[/40], "William Gilson although weak in body" made "his wife Frances Gilson" whole executrix and bequeathed to "his cousin John Dammen" all his land at the third Cliff when the next crop is taken off, except that which is sown with rye; to "his cousin Hannah Dammen" L20; to "his cousin Daniel Romeball" 40s.; to "Mr. John Lathorpe" L5. In a nuncupative codicil dated "seven days before he died" "Mr. William Gilson" told Edward Foster "in his own house lying upon his sick bed" that he would do nothing morre for "his cousin John Dammen." Foster deposed about "understanding what he was minded to give his cousin John Dammen, which as I did conceive was not much considering that he had been a long time his servant and was his kinsman too, & he having no children" [MD 3:160, citing PCPR 1:35].

On 3 March 1639/40 whereas "Mr. Gilson, of Scituate, is lately deceased, & that Edward Foster, who should have proved his will, and Mr. Gilson's wife, who should have exhibited an inventory of his goods, were both dangerously sick, a commission is granted to Mr. Tymothy Hatherley, Will[ia]m Hatch, & Henry Cobb, to take the probate of the said will & inventory by sufficient witnesses, and to return the same the next Court" [PCR 1:141].

The inventory of "Mr. Will[ia]m Gilson who died at Scituate the first day of February 1639" was taken 12 March 1639[/40] and totalled L229 3s. 2d. including no real estate [MD 3:162, citing PCPR 1:35].

On 7 June 1649 four leading citizens of Scituate, in response to a petition from "John Damman" of Scituate, deposed that "whereas William Gillson, late of Seteeat, deceased, in his lifetime did require earnestly of the townsmen aforesaid several parcels of land for accommodation of the said William Gilson, but being required of him by us whose names are underwritten the reason of his deire of so much land, being ancient & having no issue of his body to inherit the same after him, his answer was, that he had brought over with him into New England two of his sister's children from their parents, and was bound in conscience both to take care & to provide for them as if they were his own; and we conceive that the land was granted unto him according unto his desire in that behalf" [PCR 2:142-43]. On 24 May 1649 Isaac Robinson testified that "I do remember that Mr. Gillson's plea with us for land was, that although he had no children of his own, yet that he had two of his sister's children, which he looked upon as his own, & so did desire to leave them something after his days was ended; and so for John Damman I have heard Mr. Gillson say that he whould have his land after his wife's days were ended; and I have likewise heard Mr. Gillson's wife acknowledge it, & further that she would not worng the said John & Hanna of what was her husband's will about the lands, yet she would not for some reasons have the said John & Hanna know her husband's will in that business for the present" [PCR 2:143]. At court on 8 June 1649 "proclamation was made that if any could lay any just claim or title to the lands of William Gillson, deceased, that they should come in and should be heard; but no claim or title was challenged" [PCR 2:143].

On 11 November 1633, in the settlement of the estate of Peter Brown, his daughter Priscilla was placed with William Gilson for twelve years, and he was given L15 for the use of Priscilla, which was to be returned at the end of her time [PCR 1:18-19]. On 28 October 1645, having finished "the term she was to dwell with W[illia]m Gilson," she chose her uncle John Brown as her guardian [PCR 2:89]; this would imply that she continued to serve with Gilson's widow after his death.
