156 Thanks to Donald MacDavid, ( Lancaster Historical Society ) for the following information:
"The first mention of a cemetery in Bowmansville was in the deed of land sold by
Abraham Frick to Isaac Staley in 1840. It specified that a quarter acre of fenced land
used as a burial ground was not to be included in the sale. This is the section at the
east front of Transit Rural Cemetery, the part that contains the oldest graves and stones.

161 "ABRAHAM HERR (who came with his father HANS HERR in 1710), Bishop Hans Burkholder and Melchior Brenneman (who came with the Brubakers, Hostetters, Greiders, Hersheys, Stinemans, Leamans, Swarrs, Kauffmans), having fled from the Palatinate, formed a settlement in 1717 along the Conestoga. Services were held in private houses. Congregations were organized and ministers appointed in Lampeter, Strasburg, Manor, Hempfield, Leacock and Earl townships by the Mennonites before Lancaster had changed its name from Hickory Town and before the county was separated from Chester county." (Taken from Mennonites of Lancaster Conference, by Martin G. Weaver, 1931, pp. 37-38.)

"On October 12, 1719, ABRAHAM HERR and his brother, Hans, petitioned James Steel for a grant of 400 acres for their brother, Isaac, who had recently arrived. In the 1720s, according to the estimates of architectural historians, he built a house that still stands at 25 Bentley Lane in Lancaster Township near Millersville on land that went to his son, Rudy." (Taken from the 1994 Supplement to the Third Edition of the Genealogical Record of Hans Herr, by Theodore W. Herr, originally published 1908, p. 788.)

Immigration 1710
arrived in Philadelphia, w/family, from Switzerland, via the Palatinate 
HERR, Abraham (I19521)
 
162 "Christian Herr, son of Hans Herr, also had surveyed to him a tract of 530 acres, a short distance west from his father's land. On this tract he erected, in 1719, a famous dwelling with stone lintels and large rooms, in which the religious services for the settlement were held for over 100 years. (The first separate house of worship was built of bricks along the public highway, in 1848, and rebuilt in the summer of 1889.) It also served as the home of Christian Herr during his entire wedded life. The house, still standing, was built 10 years before Lancaster county was organized. HANS HERR died in this house in 1725, at the age of 86 years, and his widow died 5 years later at the age of 91 years. Both were laid to rest in the family graveyard on the old farm, along with many associates and descendants." (Taken from Mennonites of Lancaster Conference, by Martin G. Weaver, 1931, pp. 36-37.)

"Christian Herr, a Mennonite minister, married Anna. His Bible (Basel: 1736), containing the records of his daughter Elizabeth's husband and children, is housed at the 1719 Herr House, 1849 Hans Herr Drive, Willow Street, PA, which he built on his patent." (Taken from the 1994 Supplement to the Third Edition of the Genealogical Record of Hans Herr, by Theodore W. Herr, originally published 1908, p. 787.)

165 "HANS HERR was born in 1639, in Switzerland, at or near Zurich. He became a member of the Mennonite religious society and a prominent minister of that denomination. When persecution became unendurable, many of his congregation emigrated with him to the Palatinate in Germany, which was then governed by a ruler who promised protection and religous freedom. This was satisfactory until the Palatinate fell into the hands of other rulers, when the Mennonites were again subject to persecution. When this occurred, a number of them visited William Penn in London, in 1707, and arranged terms with him to colonize a portion of what is now Lancaster county. In 1709, Hans Herr, John R. Bundely, Hans Mylin, Martin Kendig, Jacob Miller, Hans Funk, Martin Oberholtzer, Wendel Bowman and others bought 10,000 acres of land on the south side of Pequea creek. A warrant was issued for the land October 10, 1710, and it was surveyed October 23, 1710. In the meantime, Martin Kendig traveled to Europe and returned with members of the families of those who had come over in 1709. Hans Herr settled near Lampeter, and later lived with his son, Christian Herr, near Willow Street, where the latter built a large stone dwelling in 1719, which is still standing. Here the venerable Hans Herr died in 1725." (Taken from Genealogical Record of Hans Herr, by Theodore W. Herr, originally published 1908, pp. ix-xi; available from the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society for $40.)

"A memorial in the Willow Street Mennonite Cemetery, where Hans Herr is presumed to have been buried, was erected by a Herr reunion group. It gives September 17, 1639 and October 11, 1725 as his respective birth and death dates, and May 1, 1639 and June 9, 1730 for Elizabeth Mylin Kendig Herr. Theodore Herr [compiler of the 1908 Herr genealogy] gives 1644 for her birth date and 1730 for her death. The reunion group's, Theodore Herr's, and Martin G. Weaver's sources for all these dates are currently unknown. In response to this situation, numerous researchers within the past 50 years have attempted to document the existence of Hans Herr. The tradition of his being the aged father of his Herr family in America stems from oral history recorded in 1844 by I. Daniel Rupp (History of Lancaster County), who in the course of his research interviewed 'Pequea' Christian Herr, a Mennonite bishop and Herr descendant. Rupp's version of the Hans Herr story was repeated with variations by many later historians." (Taken from the 1994 Supplement to the Third Edition of Genealogical Record of Hans Herr, by Theodore W. Herr, originally published 1908, p.787.)

Neither John Herr nor his son, John Herr, was naturalized, but the other son, Christian, was. On May 21, 1761, Christian Herr received a new patent for the whole tract. John Herr's wife, Frances, died after 1756.

171 (Amherst Bee - February 25, 1939 -
"The last Civil War Veteran in Williamsville,
Christian F. Witmer, 99, died Thursday night at his home in 179 Cayuga St.
after an illness of several weeks.
Mr.Witmer, a member of a pioneer Amherst family homesteaded in the area where the
Snyder section subsequently was developed. His father, Tobias Witmer, one of the first engineers
and surveyors in Amherst, went to war with his son when President Lincoln
called for volunteers. they served the 50th New York Engineering Division."

I was born April 11, 1840, Previous to reaching my majority I was engaged mostly on work on the farm and attending school, and assisting my father in making surveys. My first venture in the way of business for myself was teaching the public school in what was known as the "Good District" in the town of Clarence for the winter term of 1860 - 1861.
At the close of the school term I took a course in Bryant and Stratton Merchantile College in Buffalo, graduating in the spring of 1862.
Enlisted in the 50th N.Y. Volunteers Engineers, August 22, 1862 and was honorably dischardged from the army service at the close of the War. The next few years were devoted to teaching schools during the winter in Levanworth, KS, and Easton Missouri, and on government surveys in the western part of Kansas, during the summer.
Those were interesting times for me as you may judge from the fact that my flagman, John Roach, a Cavalryman was killed by Roman Noses' band of Cheyenne Indians while we were engaged in locating a township line on the plains.
In 1868, I returned to New York State and took over my fathers business of surveying and insurance. I married Mary S. COTTON of Elma, Sept. 04, 1878. Two sons and three daughters were born of this union. Daughter Grace, born June 24, 1879, and died Sept. 01, 1916. There survive, sons Ralph, with two grandchildren.
