Descendants of Johan Georg Krauskopf

 

The surname Krauskopf is a combination of two German words: kraus, “curly” and kopf, “head”

 

 

Generation One

 

 

     1.  Johann Georg1 KRAUSKOPF was born circa 1728 in Darmstadt in the Grand Duchy of Hesse, Germany, and died in Kensington, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania between 23 November 1783, when he signed his will, and 9 December 1783, when it was probated.

      Johan Georg was variously seen in records as Johann Georg Krauskob, Jorg Krausskopf, and John George Krauskopf, and in his will as George Krouskup. Once in America the surname spelling Krouskop was eventually adopted by most if not all descendants. For the purpose of this document that spelling will be used from Generation Two onwards.

      Johan Georg came to the United States on the ship Halifax, Thomas Coatam, captain. The vessel sailed from Rotterdam, Holland, to Cowes, Isle of White, England, and on to the port of Philadelphia, arriving 28 September 1753. On the ship’s passenger list, made out by the captain, his name appeared as ‘Johannes Jerick Krauszkeep, 25 years.’ However, when he signed the Oath of Abjuration in the colonies (an oath asserting the right of the present royal family to the crown of England and abjuring, or repudiating, the right of the Stuarts and other claimants to the throne), it was as ‘Johan George Krauskop.’

      According to Colonial and Revolutionary Families of Pennsylvania: Genealogical and Personal Memoirs, published by Lewis Historical Publishing Company Inc., New York, 1945, “There are not many records of his civic activities after he arrived in this country, and the few in existence consist mainly of deeds and wills, on which his name appears as witness. From one of these deeds, made four years after his arrival, it is learned that he was a carpenter and at that time, August 9, 1757, lived in the Northern Liberties [in Philadelphia County]. This transaction was a purchase of land. The deed was acknowledged by the grantor before there was record of another real estate transaction, which took place May 20, 1782, when he bought some more land in the Northern Liberties from John and Mary Lynn.”

      George, as he came to be known in America, was a member of the German Reformed Church; however his marriages, of which there were three, appear in records of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Philadelphia. He married first 4 January 1756 Maria Christina WALTER, but apparently she died shortly after as on 11 January 1757 he wed Susanna Magdalena BASELER, daughter of Ulrich Baseler. Again, that marriage was short-lived and on 14 March 1758 George married Anna Margretha WILD by whom he had children.

      On 8 August 1767 George acted as witness to the will of George Reiss, “fisher,” of the Northern Liberties. George Reiss and his wife Anna Margaretha were named as godparents at the baptisms of George Krouskup’s sons Johann George and Johann Philip, and were sponsors at the baptism of his daughter Maria Catherine.

      The German custom of baptizing children with similar names or combinations of the same name creates a great deal of confusion for researchers. The following list of offspring for Johan George KRAUSKOPF and Anna Margretha WILD, all born in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, is based on christening records of the German Reformed Church in Philadelphia and should not be considered definitive.

                   2       i.    Maria Elizabeth2 KROUSKOP was born 7 December 1758. She was christened 11 December 1758.

                   3      ii.    Margaretta KROUSKOP was christened 22 June 1760. She was referred to as Margaret in her father’s will. Margaret married Conrad MILLER in 1779 in Philadelphia and they were parents of two daughters identified as “Beggy” and “Getty” in George Krouskup’s will in which Margaret specifically received nothing. Instead, a bequest went to these two daughters. They were no doubt the Margaret Miller and Catherine Till who received a portion of George Krouskup’s property on Palmer Street in Philadelphia which was divided among his designated heirs 5 April 1810. Catherine married William Till and Margaret supposedly married Joseph Paxson.

                   4      iii.    Maria Catherina KROUSKOP was christened 10 October 1762. In the division of George Krouskup’s property among his heirs, made 5 April 1810, she was the Catherine Wimer who received a lot on Palmer Street in Philadelphia. According to one source, Catherine may have been married three times, all in Philadelphia: first to John Beamm 9 February 1783, then to John Wimer/Winer in 1810, and lastly to (--?--) Baumm in 1836. No records have been located proving or disputing this claim.

              +   5     iv.    Johann George KROUSKOP, born 12 August 1763; married Mary APT; married Mary Jane JONES.

              +   6      v.    Anna Maria KROUSKOP, born in 1764; married John FULMER.

                   7     vi.    Johann Philip KROUSKOP was born 17 February 1765 and christened 8 January 1766. He was not a party to the 5 April 1810 division of his deceased father’s property on Palmer Street in Philadelphia, but nevertheless may be the John Crousup found in the Northern Liberties, Philadelphia County in the 1810 federal census. He also may be the John Krouskoup in Colchester Township, Delaware County, New York in the 1800 census, the same location as brother George Krouskoup (see #5 below).

                   8    vii.    Maria Magdalena KROUSKOP was born 28 August 1766 and was christened 14 May 1767. She was not a party to the 5 April 1810 division of her deceased father’s property on Palmer Street in Philadelphia, and is thought to have been deceased.

                   9    viii.    Susanna Margaretha KROUSKOP was born 8 March 1768 and was christened 13 March 1768. She was not a party to the 5 April 1810 division of her deceased father’s property on Palmer Street in Philadelphia, and is thought to have been deceased.

                 10     ix.    Susanna KROUSKOP was born 27 February 1769 and was christened 19 July 1769. She was named as Susannah Rhoadhand in the 5 April 1810 division of her deceased father’s property on Palmer Street in Philadelphia, but her married name was very likely Rotan. It is thought that she married Frederick Rotan in 1789 in Philadelphia and had children Frederick Rotan, Jr., William and Mary Ann. Mary Ann married Samuel Pennington and had a daughter Susan Pennington, born circa 1820, who married Uriah Cox, who was born circa 1818 in England. That couple had a daughter Sallie Cecelia Cox, born in March 1853 in Pennsylvania, who married circa 1882 William Bennett Tuttle who was born in May 1849 in Massachusetts. Sallie and William had a daughter Helen Taylor Tuttle, born in March 1890 in Colorado, who married Dr. Phillip Work, son of Hubert and Laura A. Work, who was born in June 1888 in Colorado. Their children were Susan, Laura and Elizabeth.

 

Generation Two

 

 

     5.  Johann George2 KROUSKOP (Johann Georg1) was born 12 August 1763 in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania and was christened 17 June 1764 in the German Reformed Church in that city. He died 22 December 1851 in Jefferson Township, Logan County, Ohio at age 88. George, Sr., as he was known, was buried in Tharps Run Cemetery, Jefferson Township.

     George appeared on the federal census of 1800 in Colchester Township, Delaware County, New York and was in Hancock Township in Delaware County in the 1810 census. He and his family went to Logan County around 1812 or 1813 and settled first in a rude village known as Belleville which disappeared once the city of Bellefontaine in Lake Township was formed. At the time of his death George resided in Jefferson Township.

    George married first Mary APT in 1782 in Philadelphia. She was born circa 1763 and may have been the daughter of George Appt who was in Northern Liberties, Philadelphia County in the 1790 census. Mary died in New York some time before 1792, the year George married second Mary Jane JONES. Mary Jane was born 1 April 1774 in Goshen County, New York and died 26 July 1851 in Logan County, Ohio at age 77. She was buried in Tharps Run Cemetery. Her father may have been Solomon Jones or David Jones who were witnesses to a deed between George Krouskop, Jr. and George, Sr., and Mary Jane on 8 July 1807.

     Known child of Johann George2 KROUSKOP and Mary APT was:

            +   11       i.    George3 KROUSKOP, Jr., born 8 February 1783 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; married Sarah CODDINGTON.

     Known children of Johann George2 KROUSKOP and Mary Jane JONES were as follows:

                 13      ii.    Mercy KROUSKOP was born between 1801 and 1810 in Delaware County, New York and married Joseph BLACK 2 October 1825 in Logan County, Ohio. He was born between 1791 and 1800. In the 1830 census Joseph Black was enumerated in Lake Township, Logan County with 2 males under five; 1 male aged 30-39; and 2 females aged 20-29. Further information on this family has not been found.

            +   14      iii.    Jacob KROUSKOP, born 20 October 1800 in Delaware County, New York; married Martha THARP; married Elizabeth MCCLOUD.

            +   15     iv.    Cynthia K. KROUSKOP, born 1811 in Pennsylvania; married James L. WILKINS.

            +   16      v.    David KROUSKOP, born 7 May 1813 in Logan County, Ohio; married Mary Ann CALOR; married Nancy Isabel MILNER.

                 17     vi.    Ellis Wright KROUSKOP was born 15 November 1815 in Logan County, Ohio. He died 5 July 1841 in Logan County at age 25, and was buried in Tharps Run Cemetery, Jefferson Township, Logan County.

 

     6.  Anna Maria2 KROUSKOP (Johann Georg1) was born in 1764 in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania and was christened there 9 October 1776. She was also known as Mary, so named in her father’s will. She died 25 January 1842 in Philadelphia County at age 78, and was buried 30 January 1842 in Laurel Hill Cemetery, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County. Her will, signed 19 December 1841, was probated 14 February 1842 in Philadelphia County.

     Mary married John FULMER circa 1785 in Philadelphia. John, the son of Michael and Catherine (Zoll) Vollmer, was born 3 May 1763 in Pennsylvania and died 22 August 1824 in Philadelphia County at age 61. He was buried first in the German Lutheran Burial Grounds in Philadelphia but his body was re-interred 27 April 1839 in Laurel Hill Cemetery in the family plot.  His will, signed 20 March 1821, was probated 31 August 1824 in Philadelphia County. John’s son Michael Fulmer sold his interest in his father’s estate for $5000 4 September 1844. The deed of conveyance gives the name of the testator, his widow, and all the children who were living when it was executed, and thus stands as proof of John Fulmer’s family.

     It is not known when John began using the spelling Fulmer for his last name, but in 1814 his name appears for the first time in the Philadelphia City Directory – given as “John Fulmer, carpenter.” He was residing on Palmer Street near Duke Street which was in the Kensington district of the old Northern Liberties. The house was likely on the lot given to his wife in the division of her deceased father’s Palmer Street property 5 April 1810.  

     John is on record as having purchased a tract of eight acres in Northern Liberties for 500 pounds on 5 August 1795, and two of the "Vinyard Lots" 4 May 1799 and 29 December 1809.  He purchased a dwelling at 10th and Buttonwood Streets in Penn Township from his son-in-law John Widener 3 December 1817, and lived there the balance of his life.

Generation Three

 

 

     11.  George3 KROUSKOP, Jr., (Johann George2, Johann Georg1) was born 8 February 1783 in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.  He died 22 March 1854 in Jefferson Township, Logan County, Ohio at age 71, and was buried in Tharps Run Cemetery, Jefferson Township. His will, signed 7 March 1854, was probated 28 March 1854 in Logan County. Named in the will were his widow Sarah; sons Richard, William and John; and daughters Clarinda Krouskop, Elvira Krouskop, Sarah Ann Henry, Mary Sapp, and Almyra Creviston. His son Richard was executor of the estate.

      George was the second school teacher and the third auditor in Logan County, which position he served from 1832 to 1846. He also was an election clerk in the county beginning in April 1817 and ending in August 1818.

    Circa 1803 in New York George married Sarah CODDINGTON who was born 13 March 1787 in that state. She died 28 January 1861 in Logan County at age 73, and was buried in Tharps Run Cemetery. Sarah’s father may have been Joseph Coddington, born 26 February 1756, who married first Elizabeth Jones 11 April 1781 and second Eunice Mott 23 February 1786, both in Goshen, Orange County, New York.  In the 1790 census there were three Joseph Coddington in Ulster County, which is located just north of Orange County. In 1797 Delaware County was formed from Ulster and Otsego Counties and in the 1800 census Joseph lived in Colchester Township, Delaware County as did George and John Krouskoup [sic]. By 1818 Joseph Coddington was in Logan County , Ohio. The first election in Lake Township, Logan County, held in that year, included the electors Joseph Coddingham [sic] and William Coddingham [sic], Joseph’s son, as well as George Krouskop. Both Joseph and William Coddington voted in Jefferson Township, Logan County 14 March 1818. The 1820 census for Logan County shows Joseph Coddington with 1 male under 10; 1 male 26-45; 1 male 45 and over; 1 female 16-26; 1 female 45 and over. William does not appear as head of household in Logan County, however he possibly was the male 26-45 in Joseph’s household. Joseph’s sons Henry and Samuel also were enumerated in Logan County. Joseph returned to New York and was in the 1830 census in Wawarsing, Ulster County. The father of the Joseph Coddington in question is said to have been Thomas Coddington, born 27 November 1712 in Woodbridge, Middlesex County, New Jersey who married Phoebe (--?--) about 1743 in New Jersey. This Thomas was the son of Benjamin and Mary.  Benjamin was born in Middlesex County 8 October 1680 and died in 1753.
