We met Margaret Ostertag (abt 1605 - abt 1667) earlier as the wife of Christoph Neuhart (abt 1599 - 1654). Now let's visit with Margaret Ostertag's ancestors. We will begin with Marzolph Ostertag,

Printed Book Page # 208

Sr.(abt 1462 - bef 1538), the gr. gr. grandfather of Margaret Ostertag.

Marzolph (Sr.) Ostertag (abt 1462 - bef 1538) He died in Fischbach, Germany

children: Wendell Ostertag (abt 1488 - ?)

@ Theobald Ostertag (abt 1494 - aft 1538)

Marzolph Ostertag (1500 - ?)

This old gentleman was the patriarch of the Cleeburg/Alsace, Fischbach, and Rumbach Ostertag families of the 1400s - 1600s. This family, from Alsace and the Palatinate, figures into the pedigree of over 50 Colonial American surnames including Biery, Boyer, Daniel, Doschler, Hauser, Kern, Kohler, Kuntz, Miller, Newhard, Easterday, Schafer, Schall, Schneider, Seem, Troxell, and many others. Marzolph Ostertag, Sr.(abt 1462 - bef 1538) was married by 1487 in Fischbach to an Amt Wegelnburg subject. We do not know her name but know she was born about 1464. We shall call her N.N. (1464)?.

Theobald (Sr.) Ostertag (abt 1494 - aft 1538)

father: Marzolph Ostertag, Sr.(abt 1462 - bef 1538)

mother: N.N. (1464)

children: @ Theobald Ostertag (abt 1529 - 1587)

We do not have much information on Theobald Ostertag Sr. (abt 1494 - aft 1538), son of Marzolph Ostertag Sr. (abt 1462 - 1538), except that he was "of Fischbach" and that he had a son, Theobald Ostertag Jr. (abt 1529 - aft 1578), our ancestor. Theobald had a brother named Marzolph Ostertag, Jr. (1500 - aft 1538). In 1538 the records show that Marzolph could neither read nor write (illiterate) and that according to sworn testimony, he and at least another Fischbach brother, participated in the Peasants' War of 1523 - 1525.

Theobald (Jr.) Ostertag (abt 1529 - aft 1578)

father: Theobald (Sr.) Ostertag (abt 1494 - aft 1538)

children: Haubert Ostertag (abt 1553 - ?)

@ Marzolph (Marx) Ostertag (abt 1560 - 1619)

Wendell Ostertag (abt 1563 - abt 1628)

The son of Theobald Ostertag Sr. (abt 1494 - aft 1538), Theobald Ostertag Jr. (abt 1529 - aft 1578), married in 1555 and had three sons for whom we have a little anecdotal information. The oldest of the three sons was Haubert Ostertag (abt 1553 - bef 1609). The middle son was our ancestor, Marzolph (Marx) Ostertag (abt 1560 - 1619) and the father of Margaret Ostertag (abt 1605 - abt 1667). We have met Margaret earlier as our ancestor who married Christophol Neuhart (abt 1599 - 1654). The youngest of the three sons was Wendell Ostertag (abt 1563 - 1628). What we know of these three brothers is as follows.

Printed Book Page # 209

Haubert Ostertag (abt 1553 - bef 1609)

father: Theobald (Jr.) Ostertag (abt 1529 - aft 1578)

children: Catharine Ostertag (1586 - ?)

N.N. Ostertag (1588 - ?)

Haubert Ostertag (abt 1553 - bef 1609) married about 1577. The records show that in 1591 he was a forester of gross/klein (large/small) Siebenthal in Neiderschlettenbach (County of Alterstatt) territory.

Wendell Ostertag (abt 1563 - abt 1628)

father: Theobald Ostertag Jr. (abt 1529 - aft 1578)

wife: # 1 Margaret (1587)? married in 1587

wife: # 2 Johanetta (1614)? married in 1614

children: Catharine Ostertag (1591 - ?)

Apollonia Ostertag (abt 1593 - aft 1609)

Elisabeth Ostertag (abt 1565 - ?)

Philipp Ostertag (1597 - 1636)

Anna Ostertag (1603 - aft 1609)

Wendell Ostertag (abt 1563 - abt 1628) married his first wife, Margaret, in 1587 and his second wife, Johanetta, about 1614. Wendell was listed as Rumbach Fuhrmann & Schultheiss which translates to be mayor of Rumbach. Wendell vocation was given as a Rumbach teamster and mayor between 1605 - 1627. He appears to have married in 1587 a daughter of Theobald* Winter (1527 - aft 1591), however, further proof is needed to verify this. (Here the researcher added a note that the Winter family seems the only Rumbach family sufficiently affluent for the lifestyle and amount of property held by Wendell.) A servant lived in the household in 1609.

Marzolph (Marx) Ostertag (abt 1560 - 1619) Born and died in Rumbach

father: Theobald Ostertag Jr. (abt 1529 - aft 1578)

wife: Barbara Yost (abt 1564 - aft 1616) married about 1584

children: @ Margaret Ostertag (abt 1605 - aft 1667)

Our ancestor, Marzolph (Marx) Ostertag (abt 1560 - 1619), was born and died in Rumbach. He and his wife had only one daughter, Margaret Ostertag (abt 1605 - aft 1667). Marx was a lay magistrate, cartwright (also referred to as wagoneer), innkeeper, and "handfroner"; that is, one who did not have draft animals when donating vassal servitude to the duchy. The inn was likely inherited from his wife's parents. Marx's grandchildren paid Niederschlettenbach taxes in 1666 and 1680, indicating his ancestral link with that village. Marx's trade was that of a cartwright, so he was known as "the wagoner" rather than "the innkeeper" because the latter was a responsibility that came by inheritance through marriage, not through skill or interest. The Marx Ostertag inheritance went to their daughter, Margaret Ostertag (abt 1605 - aft 1667), who was the sole survivor.

Margaret Ostertag (abt 1605 - abt 1667) Born and died in Rumbach, Germany

father: Marzolph (Marx) Ostertag (abt 1560 - 1619)

mother: Barbara Yost (abt 1654 - aft 1616)

husband: # 1 Christoph Neuhart (abt 1599 - 1654) married: July 18, 1627

children: @ Nicolaus Neuhart (abt 1629 - 1674)

Hans Christophol (Jr.) Neuhart (abt 1631 - 1665)

Anna Margaret Neuhart (August 29, 1639 - ?)

Christina Neuhart (June 18, 1641 - ?)

@ Johonnata Neuhart (September 3, 1642 - ?)

George Neuhart (abt 1646 - ?)

husband: # 2 Laux Kirsch (? - bef 1659) married 1657/58

husband: # 3 Johannes Cuntz (1609 - 1686) married: Jan 14, 1660

Margaret Ostertag (abt 1605 - abt 1667) was married three times. Her first marriage is the one that is most important to our genealogy. She first married Christophel Neuhart (abt 1599 - 1654) by July 18, 1627 with whom she had 6 known children, two of whom was our ancestor, Nicolaus Neuhart (abt 1629 - 1674) and Johonnata Neuhart (September 3, 1642 - ?). Her second marriage was in 1657/5 in Rumbach to Laux Kirsch (? - by 1659). Her third marriage was by January 14, 1660 to Johannes Cuntz (1609 - 1686).
