BIOGRAPHY: Notes on the Family of Johannes Chronister 1708-1782 by Gary Chronister, 1983, p 5;
PART I, JOHANNES KRANESTER, born-1708, died-1782;
"JOHANNES KRANESTER or (CHRONISTER) was born in Germany or German Switzerland in the year 1708. In the summer of 1738 Johannes and his son Matthias, made their way to the port of Rotterdam in Holland and set sail for America on the ship WINTER GALLEY mastered by Edward Paynter. After a brief stop at the port of Deal in England the ship arrived at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 5, 1738. Out of 252 passengers, 140 heads of families were listed of which Johannes Kranester age 30 was one. No record has been found as to where they lived for the first three years but in 1742 Johannes purchased land in Huntington Township of what was then Lancaster County Pennsylvania about 100 miles west of Philadelphia. This region later became part of York County in 1749 and Adams County in 1800. He also purchased adjoining land in 1769.
"According to Donald Yoder (see introduction) there is some proof that Johannes was married before he immigrated to Pennsylvania, however if this is true his wife died either in Germany or soon after their arrival in America. In or about 1740 Johannes was married to MARIA BARBARA WEIDENBACH the daughter of another germanimmigrant HEINRICH WEIDENBACH (1687-1754) and his wife ANNA MARGRETH who arrived in Philadelphia on September 1, 1736 on the ship HARLE. The Weidenbach's lived in what is now Latimore Township of Adams County. Heinrich and Margreth also had three other daughters Mary, Catherine, and Margreth who all lived in the same region.
"Johannes and Barbara Kranester were the parents of ten children, all of whom where were born in what was then Huntington Township, Lancaster later York County Pennsylvania. They are:
1) JOHANN JACOB, born-1740-43
2) HEINRICH, born-1744 see page 13\
3) ANNA MARIA, born-1745-50
4) ANNA ELISABETH, born-June 30, 1751
5) SUSANNA, born-1752
6) JOHANNES, born-October 24, 1753
7) BARBARA, born-October 24, 1753
8) CATHARINA, born-1757
9) JOHANN CONRAD, born-August 25, 1758
10) JOHANN MICHAEL, born-1761
"Johannes and Barbara were members and among the founders of the Lower Bermudian Lutheran and Reformed Church in Latimore Township. The first meeting of this church was held on March 19, 1745 at the home of Heinrich Weidenbach. Johannes and Barbara were faithful members of this church for the rest of their lives and most of their children were baptized there. Johannes was also a Deacon of the congregation in the year 1758.
"There is no recored of any Chronisters having served in the Revolutionary War in Pennsylvania but there are records showing that Johannes and his sons Heinrich, Johannes, and Conrad paid fines for "the non-performance of military duty". This probably stemmed from their religious beliefs against war.
"Johannes died on January 30, 1782 and is buried in the Lower Bermudian Church cemetary in Latimore Township, Adams County, Pa. His original gravestone beared the following inscription in German;
"Hier Liegt u. Ruht der Ehrsame Johannes
Cronester, Gestorben den 30 Januar 1782
sein Alter 73 Jahr"
"Here Lies and Rests the Worthy Johannes
Cronester, died Januray 30, 1782 aged
73 years"
"The descendants of Johannes Chronister in the United States number in the thousands. The families descended from his brother Matthias and his sons Heinrich, Johannes, and Conrad numbered about 1070 in 1982 including some 3000 men, women and children with the name Chronister. Below is further information on Johannes' ten children."

MILITARY - from Marianne:
"Windham Township, Wyoming County, Pennsylvania, 1787-1977" says that John S Whitcomb was a Pvt in the CT Militia, under Col Hay's Reiment.
"Whitcomb's in America"? says he worked under Col Hughes, and was placed on PA Pension Roles in 1832, and had entered the service at 16 (or 13) from Windham, CT. (Marianne Note: From that, he would have been born in 1766, otherwise, he didn't get his pension until he was ancient.)
"DAR Records lin #52062" state that he was a substitue in the wagon dept, 1779-1780 under Cpt Simeon Catlin and 1781 under Col Hughes. In 1832 he was placed on the pension role of PA for 2 years actual service, PA line. His wife also received a pension.

Published in Minneapolis, MN in October, 1904.
Pg. 355.

BIBLIOGRAPHY: John Whitcomb & Frances Coggin, 350 Years Later, vol 2, p 954;
"Enlisted at age 13 in Rev. War and served 5 years. The first to be married in Geneva, New York. In 1811 he moved with his family to Pennsylvania and built the first frame house near Laceyville. It was necessary for him to cut logs, raft them 60 miles to the nearest sawmill, load the finished lumber and provisions into a boat and pole back up the river." .

RESIDENCES:
Geneva, NY 1789-1811
Hemlock Bottoms, PA 1811-
Laceyville, PA
Scottsville, PA.

NOTES from Marianne, and TO DO:
We need to write away for his military records to straighten out his age and wife, etc. The grame I say for John S Whitcomb in Laceyville was for a man that supposedly died at age 98, which would have put his birth in 1740, not in 1766. He still could have had a wife that was 34 years his junior. But, then who was the John listed in the Colchester township records, that was born to Job and Anna Whitcomb on 10 Jun 1766? Hopefully the records would straighten that out. ...If he was born in 1766, who went to Laceyville with Job Whitcomb?
