Yet another line that enters our family tree by way of the Brubach line is the Bertram family.

Ludwig Bertram

wife: Magdalena Schnur

children: Christian Michael Bertram (November 1803 - ?)

@ Philippina Bertram (1807 - ?)

Ludwig Bertram married Magdalena Schnur. They had 2 known children, one of whom was Philippina Bertram (1807 - ), wife of David Brubach (December 19, 1805 - ?). The other was Christian Michael Bertram (November 1803 - ?). We know nothing further regarding Magdalena Schnur.

Christian Michael Bertram (November 1803 - ?)

father: Ludwig Bertram

mother: Magdalena Schnur

wife: Elisabeth ?

children: Heinrich Bertram (April 1829 - - ?)

Printed Book Page # 184

Christian Michael Bertram (November 1803 - ?) is not one of our direct ancestors. The significance of Christian Michael Bertram (November 1803 - ?) is not only as a the brother of Philippina Bertram, one of our direct ancestors, but also because of the potential value for locating the Frank ancestral line in Germany. At the time of this writing, I have not yet been able to identify the ancestors of Oscar Frank, my great great grandfather. The earliest record of Oscar is as a laborer living in the household of Christian Michael Bertram (November 1803 - ?). It is hoped that in the future this may provide a clue for locating the linage of Oscar Frank.

Philippina Bertram (1807 - ?) Born in Germany, immigrated to America and died in Monroe County, Ohio

father: Ludwig Bertram

mother: Magdalena Schnur

husband: David Brubach (December 19, 1805 - ?) married November 4, 1832 in Germany

children: Carroll Brubach (? - ?)

@ Carolina Brubach (May 4, 1830 - February 27, 1912)

Henry Brubach (1841 - ?)

Jacob Brubach (January 6, 1846 - August 6, 1932)

Philippina Bertram married David Brubach (December 19, 1805 - ?) on November 4, 1832 in Germany. Philippina Bertram had already had one illegitimate child with David Brubach and was pregnant with the second at the time of their marriage. The couple had three more children in Germany before they immigrated to America. Philippina and David Brubach and their 5 children began their trip to America in 1836. On the trip to America, one daughter died and was buried at sea. The family settled in Monroe County, Ohio. One of the children who made the crossing to America was Carolina Brubach who later married Oscar Frank (1825 - 1890).

David Brubach (December 19, 1805 - ?) and his wife, Philippina Bertram (1807 - ?) were the original members of the branch of the Brubach family that settled in Monroe County, Ohio.

The Brubach family introduced several new surnames to the family tree. One of these was the Gressen line who joined our ancestral tree with the marriage of David Brubach (1748 - ?) to Maria Catharina* Gressen (March 30, 1752 - ?).

In proportion to the vast amount of information that exists on the Neuhart family, the coverage of the Neuhart family here is very brief. Rev. Dennis A. Kastens has published a vast amount of information on this family. Rev. Kasten's mother was a Neuhart and he began researching the name in the early 1950s. At this time, he has published several books covering his research. Much of the material in this book draws from these resources. For further details about Rev. Kasten's work, see reference XXX.

A look at the above Neuhart descendent chart suggests several different linkages with the Neuhart family. And indeed there were. Unlike the Reiss or Wagner family in which there were several generations of male family members that accounted for many decades of continuous lineage, the Neuhart family name truncates frequently, then, reappears again. The difference, of course is due to the presence of a larger number of women in the Neuhart line controlling the flow of the lineage in our ancestral line. But, even though the name weaves in and out of our family tree, we can still claim a lineage of 8 consecutive Neuhart families that covers a period of over 240 years.

Another aspect of our Neuhart ancestor line is the several variants in the spelling of the name. While there are about a dozen variants, our line encounters only three: Knauwart, Nauert, and Neuhart.

Fredrich Knauwart (abt 1518 - bef 1589) Died in Dahn, Germany

wife: N.N. (1520)? a widow (abt 1520 - aft 1589)

Printed Book Page # 190

 

Children: @ Hans Knauwert (abt 1548 - 1608)

We begin our Neuhart lineage with Fredrich Knauwart (abt 1518 - bef 1589). However, the reader is cautioned that there is uncertainty regarding whether Fredrich Knauwart (abt 1518 - bef 1589) and his son, Hans Knauwert (abt 1548 - 1608), are members of our ancestral line. For more on this, see the discussion under the Valentine Neuart entry below.

Frederich was born the year that forks were first used as a dining utensil at a banquet in Venice (See Time-Line). It would be years, however, before forks made their way into common use. Fredrich's life of about 70 years, however, saw one of the most turbulent periods of religious turmoil. Fed up with the corruption of the Christian Church in Rome, several protestant groups were formed, among them the group that later became known as Lutheran after the name of its reluctant leader, Martin Luther.

Hans Knauwert (abt 1548 - 1608) of Dahn

father: Fredrich Knauwart (abt 1518 - bef 1589)

mother:N.N. (1520)? a widow (abt 1520 - aft 1589)

wife: N.N. (1548)? (abt 1548 - aft 1590)

children: @ Valentine Nauert (abt 1574 - 1636)

Hans Knauwert (abt 1548 - 1608), retained his father's spelling of their name. Fredrich's grandson, Valentine Nauert (abt 1574 - 1636), however, dropped the silent "K" and "w" to arrive at the 'Nauert" spelling. While we usually credit the first user of the new spelling of a name with having made the change, frequently, this was not the case at all. Many of our ancestors could not read or write and so were dependent on others, usually in the government or church, for these services. So, more likely than not, the more phonetic spelling of the name was an attempt of some clerk or clergy to spell the name as he heard it.

Hans was identified as "of Dahn, Germany." While this usually means that we are not sure of the precise place of birth or death, it suggests that this was the village where the person spent a large portion of their life and may also be their place of birth and death.

Valentine Nauert (abt 1574 - 1636)

father: Hans Knauwert (abt 1548 - 1608) (probable - see below)

mother: N.N. (abt 1548 - aft 1590)

wife # 1: Bargara Wagner (? - aft 1609) married about 1598

children: @ Christoph Neuhart (1599 - 1654) Of Nothweiler, Germany

Ottilia Neuhart (1605 - aft 1666)

wife # 2: Margaret (1636)?

Valentine Nauert (abt 1574 - 1636) was identified as being "of Nothweiler, Germany." While this

Printed Book Page # 191

means that we are not sure of the precise place of birth or death, it usually suggests that this was the village where the person spent a large portion of their life and may also be their place of birth and death. Nevertheless, he is the patriarch of all "Rumbach" Neuharts. He arrived in Nothweiler about 1598 at which time he appears to have married Barbara* Wagner, his first wife.

There is some uncertainty regarding the precise lineage of Valentine Nauert (abt 1574 - 1636). He was possibly the son of Hans Knauwert (abt 1548 - 1608) in Dahn and the grandson of Fredrich Knauwart (abt 1518 - bef 1589) in Dahn. Another possibility is that a N.N. Knauwert resided in Niederschlettenbach and that Valentine was his son, because descendants paid 1644 and 1666 property tax to Bobenthal Authorities. Regardless of the uncertainty of Valentine's ancestors, he is clearly in our ancestral line. It is only his predecessors who are uncertain.

Valentine Nauert (abt 1574 - 1636) moved to Nothweiler upon marriage to his first wife, Barbara (? - aft 1609) who was a native of that village. She was likely a member of our Wagner family, as we have discussed above, but that linkage has not yet been made. Valentine Nauert was a subsistence farmer. He also worked as a teamster for the Schoenau iron works and likely drove ox carts from the ore mines to the smelter which had been reactivated in 1592. Valentine had come from a devout home and became a church elder at a young age, filling the term of another elder whose position was vacated by death in 1605. This meant that Valentine served the Nothweiler church for the next 31 years in that capacity. From 1621 until the time of his death in 1636, he was also the village Mayor of Nothweiler. Valentine adopted a nephew, Michael Neuhart into his household by 1609 and served as security for a loan in 1627 which Michael took out as a Rumbach blacksmith. Valentine's first wife, Bargara Wagner (? - aft 1609), was the mother of their son Christoph Neuhart (1599 - 1654). Barbara died sometime after 1609. Valentine married a second time to Margaret (1572)? who also died in1636. The years 1635-1636 saw the return of one of the deadly sieges of bubonic plague that nearly devastated Rumbach population. While we can not be sure, it is likely that both Valentine and his second wife, Margaret, were victims of the plague.

George Neuhart (abt 1646 - ?)

Christoph Neuhart (1599 - 1654), the son of Valentine and Barbara Nauert, brings yet another variant on the spelling of the Neuhart name. This spelling remains the current and most popular version. It was Christoph Neuhart who brought the Ostertag (Ostertag means Easter Day in English) name into our ancestral tree. He married Margaret Ostertag (abt 1605 - aft 1667) who was the daughter of Marzolph (Marx) Ostertag (abt 1560 - 1619). The Ostertag family will be discussed in more detail in the following pages.

Christoph and Margaret lived through and raised their family in a particularly difficult period. The religious upheavals of the mid-1500s had given birth to several protestant religions in opposition to the parent Catholic church. With the dawning of the new century, there were strong feelings that ranged from the belief that the Catholic church should be unified and restored as the only church in Europe, to, equally strong feelings that the Protestant reforms were the correct interpretation of the Christian faith. By the early 17th century these factions had crystalized their positions and had large followings that reached to high levels in the government. Some were willing to go to war to protect their beliefs.

While the Thirty-Year Wars that followed may have been originally justified by the participants on religious grounds, it soon became an opportunity to pursue economic and aggressive agendas. For example, Spain who held much of the territory which is now the Netherlands had long sought an overland route between her possessions in Italy and the Netherlands. The lands of our ancestors lay directly in their path.

In the end, the period between 1618 and 1648 saw several waves of armed forces sweep across Europe with devastating results. Villages and houses in the paths of these armies became the providers of food and supplies needed to keep the armies functional.

The problem was further exacerbated by the return of the bubonic plague in 1635/36. In this period the county of Wegelnburg lost over 75% of its population, 66% of the residences, 85% of the horses, 82% of the cattle, 83% of the goats and 100% of the sheep. Schoenau where the population was 102 persons in 1634 was reduce to 2 families. At least 62 people were buried in the wake of the Black Death in Rumbach during 1635/36. These burials were found in a concentrated area of the Rumbach cemetery just outside the main entry to the church during the 1957 renovation of the structure. During the hostilities, the Rumbach church was on the village side was hit by cannon fire about November 1635, but this was apparently repaired by 1638.

The population of the area around Rumbach remained very sparse for the next 50 years, with only 40 families in the County of Wegelnburg in 1676. Then, following the period of the Thirty-Year Wars, there were repeated "Wars of Reunion" which combined with plague and famine kept the population low.

This was the condition of our ancestors' homeland during the life of Christoph and Margaret, their parents and children.

Nicolaus Neuhart (abt 1629 - 1674) Nicolaus could have been born in either Nothweiler or Rumbach, Germany. He died in Rumbach.

Hans Jacob* Neuhart (March 7, 1668/69 - September 30, 1709)

The sons of Nicolaus Neuhart (abt 1629 - 1674) all immigrated from Rumbach and established several different Neuhart lines around the world. The six sons and the clans they established are as follows:

George Ancestor of French Neuharts in Climbach/Bas Rhin, Russia, Nothweiler, and New York, including the TV Comedian, Bob Newhart.

Philipp Ancestor of Nebraska, Ohio and about one third of the Pennsylvania Newhards.

Adam Ancestor of Nebraska, Ohio and South Dakota Neuharts.

Christoph Ancestor of Nebraska and about two thirds of the Pennsylvania Newhards.

Valentine Ancestor of French Neuharts of Steinseltz/Bas Rhin.

Jacob Ancestor of French Neuharts of Sulz/Bas Rhin, Russia and the Dakotas.

Nicolaus was the first to bring our Schneider line into the family tree with his marriage in 1651 to Anna Catharine* Schneider (1632 - 1685). Nicolaus served about 10 years as a Rumbach church elder (1664 - 1674) which was his station in 1673. It appears that Nicolaus Neuhart died in the autumn of 1674 leaving children ages 5 through 19 at home with the impoverished widow. In 1679 and 1680, the tax records state that she was widowed.

Valentine* Neuhart (October 20, 1679 - 1764) lived until the age of 85 years. He and Apollonia were possibly married nearly 50 years. They were both living March 22-24, 1751 when they filed a "Last Will and Testament" with the Probate Court of their community. They are buried in Rumbach in the village church yard. Valentine* Neuhart introduced the Minicus line to the family tree through his marriage to Anna Apollonia* Minicus (1690 - 1751).
