His wife Catharine nee Schuffert died 11 Mar 1798 and was buried in Coldwater. They had 14 children, of whom seven were living in 1798.

Hirschland nestles in foothills on the western side of the Vosges Mountains. A Farming Village
Not much has changed in Hirschland since the 1740's. At least that's the impression I got when I visited for the first time in July 1998. I believe if Theobald and Hans Georg Bieber could return there today, they might marvel at the cars and tractors and paved streets, but the layout of the village, many of the buildings, and the surrounding landscape would be completely familiar.
Farming remains the chief economic activity of Hirschland. The farmers' houses and barns are right in the village, a typical arrangement in France. Around the village are small woodlots, cow pastures, and fields planted with corn, wheat, and hay. I was struck by how much the countryside resembles the region in Berks County, Pennsylvania where the Bieber emigrants settled.
A small stream called the Isch flows through Hirschland. In the nearby countryside is an ancient mill, the Ischermühle. The Isch flows west from Hirschland and in a short distance joins the Sarre. The Sarre flows north through a sequence of towns named after it --- Saare-Union, Saareguemines, Saarbrücken --- before joining the Mosel River in the Saar region of Germany.

Not a Typical Tourist Destination
Hirschland is a small village. Its population was 358 in 1794, 577 in 1905, and 286 in 1990 (Source: Robert Behra's Alsace page).
There are few tourist amenities. I saw no place to stay overnight. One building had a restaurant sign, but it was closed when I was there. The only shops I saw were two places selling snails. I wonder whether escargots were popular in 18th Century Hirschland, or whether this taste was acquired more recently.
Despite the absence of a bakery or butchery, the residents of Hirschland do have access to fresh bread and meat. During my brief vist, two delivery trucks were plying the streets of Hirschland, selling goods from a bakery and a butcher shop in nearby towns.
Many visitors to Alsace are understandably drawn to the picturesque towns of Upper (southern) Alsace, where vineyards, half-timbered houses, restaurants, and hotels abound. Hirschland is in Lower (northern) Alsace. This region is also quite beautiful, but is less oriented towards tourism than Upper Alsace.
But the factors drawing me to Hirschland differed from those of the typical tourist. I was enchanted by the place, and thankful to see it so little changed over the ages.


Hirschland Church

Hirschland Church. Present structure dates from 1755.
From a history of Hirschland Church by Robert Muller (1996), translated from French by Steven Bieber:
"During the Middle Ages, the village of Hirschland was a place of pilgrimage. Its church was mentioned in 1290 during a Bishops conference in Rome. Its condition in 1680 was very bad and a part of the church had been burned. After 1700, the peace returned and it was necessary to construct a new church. The county appointed an architect named STENGEL to design the plans. Its construction, and that of six other churches, was during the period in which King Louis XV participated in the financing for the construction of religious buildings. Hirschland had to erect the building alone. In large part it was the responsibility of the village people to perform the construction: cutting the blocks of stone, transporting them to the site and cutting down the trees from the communal forest. The church's location is the same as the previous church after having preserved the base of the former bell-tower. The roof of this last design had two slopes, onto which was placed a globe surmounted by a cross. The present bell-tower pinnacle has been in place since 1867. Two rows of windows are situated along the nave, like in a house.
Inside the church.
"The interior is impressive by its simplicity. At the end, was the altar with a raised altar chair against the wall. The altar area was shared by some other less ornate benches against the walls facing the altar which were occupied by the pastor and the Presbyterian counselors. To each side of the chair there was a big window. All of it changed dramatically in 1950 and some elements have disappeared.
"On the sides, the galleries above the Tuscany columns were preserved (they are over two centuries old) by the parishioners of POSTROFF. It is because of them that there remain two rows of windows.
"It seems as though an old organ was replaced by the present one in 1886. Two people have been buried in the church. Jean Jacques LUCIUS (born in 1669, died 18 May 1754) was the pastor to Hirschland for 56 years and died before the reconstruction was completed in 1755 as is indicated on some of the columns near the altar. (It was Rev. LUCIUS who wrote the church records recording the records of the Hans Peter LENTZ and Moritz KLEIN families.) The second person, Charlotte WAGNER (died 1671), was the wife of pastor Georges ENGEL and has a sepulcher in the church."


Travelling northeast from Hirschland, one encounters first Eyweiler, two miles distant, and then Berg, one and one-half miles further along. Both villages are significant in the history of the Bieber family and allied Pennsylvania Dutch families. For instance, Sara Ludmann was from Eyweiler, and her marriage to Theobald Bieber is recorded in both the Berg Kirchenbuch and the Hirschland Kirchenbuch. The Berg record is important because it names the fathers of both Sara and Theobald.

The hill overlooking Berg has been a religious site for centuries, and today is the site of a Catholic church perched dramatically over the town. The steeple of the church affords wonderful views of Berg and the surrounding countryside (above).


La Petite-Pierre, Alsace. Enlarge


Hotel Kleiber, St Jean-Saverne. Enlarge

Ten miles east of Hirschland is the village La Petite-Pierre, in the heart of the Vosges mountains. It lies within the Regional Nature Park of the Northern Vosges. I'm not aware of any particular significance to the Bieber family, but La Petite-Pierre is an attractive, interesting place.

During my brief visit to Alsace, I stayed at the Hotel Kleiber in St Jean-Saverne. St Jean-Saverne is a quiet, pretty hillside village north of the bustling town of Saverne. It is, I suppose, only 15 minutes from Hirschland via the Autoroute A4, but I never actually took the Autoroute. It was much more pleasant to reach Hirschland in 30-45 minutes over the back roads.

The restored Chapelle St-Michel is a short walk from St Jean-Saverne. Nearby are prehistoric sites called the "Sorcerers' School" and the "Socerers' Grotto" recognizable by shapes carved from the bedrock. My Michelin Guide did not elaborate on these sites, but I suppose they are remains of the Druid culture.

From the "Sorcerers' School" one gains a superb view (below) over the northern Alsace plain. On a clear day the steeple of Strassburg Cathedral can be sighted. The hills on the horizon are in Germany, beyond the Rhine.

James Steward1

M, b. circa 1640, d. between 1691 and 1693
FatherJames Steward1 b. c 1600
     James Steward was also known as James Stuart.2 James Steward was also known as James Stewart.2 He was born circa 1640 at Scotland.3 He married Anna Bates at Massachusetts circa 1667.1 James Steward Stewart Clan Magazine A6 lists Benjamin as 'grandson of James/Anna (Bates) Stewart. According to Mary Stewart Kyritsis (email to Gary Rolph 21 May 1997), on page B283 'Benjamin is upgraded to being the son of James/Anna (Bates) Stewaart. However, Edson (the editor) is careful to say: 'Benjamin Stewart has been conceded by genealogists to have been a son or grandson of James1. We believe he was a son, although he could have been a son of James2 or John2, or of an older unrecorded son of James1; this is highly unlikely. He was born about 1691 in Weymouth.' On that same page Edson 'then goes on with details of the intention of marriage, the parents of Patience Andrews, and some details of his land transactions.' Stewart Clan Magazine, A6 (acc to email fr Mary Stewart Kyritsis), 'was in Weymouth in 1669 and possible earlier. . .He was referred to as master of John Bicknell's sloop in 1674. He served in Kng Philip's War in 1676, and his son James is named in the will of Alen Duglen, a Weymouth Scot who was killed in that war. On page A6 he is given only 4 children, but on B283 he is given 7, including Benjamin.1' He was a witness the first record of James Steward and Anna Bates was in 1669 when the birth of his daughter Susanna in Weymouth was recorded -- Stewart Clan Magazine, F143 with Susanna Steward in 1669.3 From a newspaper clipping attached as p.28B to Chapman's Alumni Sketches: *3122, 3. Stewart. H.F.A. Feb 26 1913
"The fact that Benjamin Stewart was "of Weymouth" at the time of his publishment to Patience Andrews at Ipswich, Feb 6 1719/20, furnishes the only suggestion in regard to his origin I have been able to discover.
There was a james Stewart in Weymouth in 1669, and probably earlier, who married Anna, daughter of Elder Edward Bates. He is described as "Master of John Bicknell's sloop" in 1674, of which Joseph Ludden was mate. He served in King Philip's War in 1676, and his son, James, is named in the will of "Alen Duglen,"a Weymouth Scotchman, who was killed in that war. His house was bought in 1680 for the use of the schoolmaster for 40 pounds. His name appears in land records only as a witness to deeds by Weymoth and Hingham people as late as 1691, wich is probably the approximate date of his deth. No record of his estate is found. The birth of his children are recorded: Susanna (2) born May 23, 1669, married Jun 13 1692, Luke "Short of Marblehead and settled in Middleboro, had a number of children; James (2) born June 26 1672, later history unknown; John (2) born Jan 22 1674, later history unknown; Hannah (2) married, was doubtless alsoa daughter of James andAnna. If there is any truth in the tradition that Abigail, wife of Samuel Cobb of Middleton, was a Stewart, she probably belonged in tis family. Benjamin and Patience (Andrews) Stewart lived in Gloucestger for many years prior to their removal to Upton, but I have no record of the births of their six children, who were: Patience, who married, Jan 4 1736-7, John Watkins at Upton; Susanna, born 1725, married March 20 1743/4 StephenRolphof Grafton, land lived in Mendon and Princeton MA; Joseph whomarried 1752, Jane Wilson, and died 1759, levaving a son Joseph who graduated at Dartmouth and a daughter Submit, who died unmarried in New Braintgree; Benjamin, born 1730, married Deborah Rider of Holiston,and had Asenath, who married Silas Wood,and Anna, who married Joseph Smith, both livedin Chesterfield, NH; Lucy, who married, May 10., 1757, John Wilson;and James, born 1735, who married 1761, Mrs. Lois (Adams) Allen of Medway and lived in New Braintree and South Brimfield (now Wales) leaving numerousdescendants.
The loss of the early Weymouth records may prevent any proof of Benjamin's parentage being found,and it is impossible tosay whetgher he was a son of grandson of James and Anna. G.S.S.4 James Steward died between 1691 and 1693 at Weymouth, Norfolk County, Massachusetts.1

Petition on behalf of John Proctor & his wife
accused of Witch Craft in Salem

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The Humble and Sincere Declaration of us, Subscribers, Inhabitants in Ipswich, on the Behalf of our Neighbors, John Proctor and his wife, now in Trouble and under Suspicion of Witchcraft.

"To The Honorable Court Of Assistants Now Sitting In Boston

"Honored and Right Worshipful,- The aforesaid John Proctor may have great reason to justify the Divine Sovereignty of God under these severe remarks of Providence, upon his peace and honor, under a due reflection upon his life past; and so the best of us have reason to adore the great pity and indulgence of God's providence, that we are not exposed to the utmost shame that the Devil can invent, under the permissions of sovereignty, though not for that sin forenamed, yet for our many transgressions. For we do at present suppose, that it may be a method within the severer but just transactions of the infinite majesty of God, that he sometimes permit Sathan to peronate, dissemble, and thereby abuse innocents and such as do, in the fear of God, defy the Devil and all his works. Thew great rage he is permitted to attempt holy Job with; the abuse he does the famous Samuel in disquieting hissilent dust, by shadowing his venerable person in answer to the charms of witchcraft; and other instances from good hands,- may be arguments. Besides the unsearchable footsteps of God's judgements, that are brought to light every morning, that astonish our weaker reasons; to teach us adoration, trembling, dependence, &c. But we must not trouble Your Honors by being tedious.Therefore, being smitten with the notice of what hath happened, we reckon it within the duties of our charity that teacheth us do as we would be done by, to offer thus much for clearing of our neighbors' innocency; viz., that we never had the least knowledge of such a nefandous wickedness in our said neighbors, since they have been our acquaintance. Neither do we remember any such thoughts in us concerning them, or ant action by them or either of them, directly tending that way, no more than might be in the lives of any persons of the clearest reputation as top any such evils. What God may have left them to, we cannot go into God's pavilion clothed with clouds of darkness round about; but, as to what we have ever seen or heard of them, upon our consciences we judge them innocent of the crime objected. His breeding hath amongst us, and was of religious parents in our place, and, by reason of relations and properties within our town, hath had constant intercourse with us. We speak upon our personal acquaintance and observations; and so leave our neighbors, and this testimony on their behalf, to the wise thoughts of Your Honors.

Josiah Wheeler1

M, b. 22 October 1675, d. 8 December 1738
FatherObadiah Wheeler1 b. 5 Dec 1650, d. 1715
MotherElizabeth White1 b. 4 Jun 1652, d. a 1712
     Josiah Wheeler was born on 22 October 1675 at Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.1 He married Martha Prescott at Massachusetts circa 1704.1 Josiah Wheeler lived; MA.1 He died on 8 December 1738 at Massachusetts at age 63.1 He was buried at Lancaster, Worcester County, Massachusetts.1 He The Family of William White, p. 135 - 'Josiah Wheeler and his wife were admitted to the Lancaster Church from the Concord Church 9 April 1710. The will of Josiah Wheeler of Bolton, dated 5 Dec 1738 and proved 6 Feb 1738/9, names wife Martha, daughters Martha Wilder, Experience Pollard, hankful Fairbanks, Dinah Stearns, and granddaughers Sarah, Copia and Patience Broughton. A petition for partition 27 March 1739 was signed by widow Martha Wheeler; james Wilder, husband of eldest daughter; William Pollard, husband of second daughedr; Jonas Fairbanks, husband of third daughter; Benjamin Stearns, husband of fourth daughter; and James Wilder, guardian to Sarah, Copia, and Patience Broughton. On 21 Feb 1743 the petition of Thomas White and his wife Sarah, formerly Broughton, and James Wilder, guardian to Copia and Patience Broughton, minors, to sell real estate from their grandfather Josiah Wheeler, deceeased, was granted. Barber, Historical Collections, p. 555 -- Bolton. . .was taken from the old town of Lancaster, and was incorporated in 1738 by the general court, when it received its present name. It was orginally pretty extensive, and contained most of the town of Berlin. . .Distance 16 miles from Worcester and 31 from Boston.1' A common mistake of local Wheeler family researchers is to confuse Richard Wheeler descendants with Josiah Wheeler descendants. Both Richard and Josiah were Lancaster residents. Josiah Wheeler was born in Concord, MA in 1675 (within a year of Richard Wheeler's murder by the Indians). Josiah was the son of Obadiah and Elizabeth (White) Wheeler of Concord, MA. He came to Lancaster and married Martha Prescott of Lancaster. They were admitted to the Lancaster Churrch from the Concord Church on April 9, 1710. Martha was likely a granddaughter of John and Mary (Platts) Prescott, thus Josiah Wheeler would have been nephew, by marriage, to Richard Wheeler. Elizabeth (White) Wheeler of Concord, Josiah's mother, was granddaughter of Mayflower passenger William White."2
