Daniel Trubey of Franklin County, Pennsylvania: The First Four Generations, Alycon Trubey Pierce

2 Daniel Trubey of Franklin County, Pennsylvania: The First Four Generations
Alycon Trubey Pierce
2000, 5x8, paper, index, 411 pp, Heritage Books
This Trubey family traces its American beginnings to a soldier bought and brought from Germany by England to assist the British in quelling the rebellious Colonials during what is known on this side of the Atlantic as the American Revolution. Daniel Trubey (or Truby or Drube), born in 1750 in Ostuffeln, Germany, served with the von Bose Regiment which met defeat at Yorktown in 1781. Daniel slipped away from the prisoner-of-war barracks at Frederick, Maryland, and settled in nearby Waynesboro, Franklin County, Pennsylvania, where he met and married, circa 1784, Margaret Mack (or Mock), the great-granddaughter of Alexander Mack (1679-1735) who founded the Church of the Brethren in America.After the deaths of Daniel (circa 1807) and Margaret (circa 1822), their four children - Nancy, David, Jacob, and Daniel - all removed initially to Stark County, Ohio. The genealogy documents the first four generations of the Hessian soldier, tracking those descendants to Kansas homesteads, Montana dairy farms, Missouri confectionaries, California placer mines, Colorado mining camps, and even Palestinian mission fields. The Civil War pensions of Trubey descendants helped to document not only their service in the Union Army, but also the composition of their families, and their multiple post-war residences.While research focused upon the first four generations, 304 descendants in the fifth generation are identified, and 177 descendants in the sixth generation appear wherever evidence came to light which documented them as well. An undocumented Trubey genealogy typescript prepared in the 1940s served as the inspiration for this study, and a verbatim transcript of it appears as an appendix to this publication. A second appendix presents transcriptions of surviving letters written or received by Trubey descendants from 1847 to 1892. The 400-page volume ends with an every-name and place index which includes some subjects as well (e.g., Civil War, divorces, ministers, twins, church and cemetery names).

Patricia A. Fogle
2004, 5x8, paper, 176 pp, Heritage Books
This volume contains the church records that were kept by the pastors. Marriage records begin in 1852. Baptism records begin with one baptism recorded in 1828, one in 1832, and by 1833 the records appear to be more complete. Death records begin in September 1862. It is possible that records were kept before these dates, but they are not to be found in the church. The last records found in specific record books end in 1993, with the pastorate of Don Stevenson. The book begins with a list of pastors of the Waynesboro Congregation from 1818-2003. The records are presented in chronological order and the entire work is fully indexed. Marriage records include date of marriage, name of reverend and names of groom and bride. Brides are listed by maiden name in the index. Baptism records give name of reverend, name of child, birth date, baptism date, and names of parents. Death records contain name of recording reverend, name of deceased, date of decease, and remarks. The remarks usually give the persons' age and sometimes the cause of death. Between 1920 and 1945, the deceased's date of birth was often included.
