Memories about Martin Neff from Family Members

Marjorie Whittle says, "Great Grandfather Martin Neff, a cattle man, also born in 1827, made his home during his later years with my grandparents (Harriett and John E. Neff) and shared a room with Grandfather (John Sanzenbacher) where they rested and slept by a large coal fireplace. Both grandfathers, as I recall, were quiet men. Great Grandfather Neff died in 1922 when my father (Cy) and I lived with my grandparents. Baked white potatoes, baked in an open coal stove oven, were one of their favorite foods."

Uncle Ed was ten when Martin died and he remembers that he was a man who seemed to have a love for everyone. He was a man who was respected for his great old age of 95. Uncle Ed also remembers his wonderful white beard and antique cane.

Robert Neff, my father, was six years old when his great-grandfather died. He remembers him as a gentle, giant with huge hands and a very pleasant disposition. Dad also remembers that he still talked in old English and this was funny. For example, Martin would say a sentence similar to this: "Where are you going says I?" Dad says that he stayed with John Sanzenbacher in a back room where there was a large coal fireplace. He enjoyed popping popcorn and visiting with neighbors. No liquor for Martin. Robert also remembers that Martin was a great gardener.


From Mahoning Weekly Herald 7-1-1862 - Reprinted Canfield News 8-27-1993
"At the Canfield Fair, October 1862 Martin Naff received a 50-cent premium for his sugar beets, and another 25 cents for his best mangel-wurzels."
Note: Mangel-wurzels were large yellow-orange beets grown extensively for food for cattle.
Martin would have been 34 years old. "The first Canfield Fair was held on October 5, 1847 (Martin was 19 at that time) as a one day event with livestock tethered along Broad Street, produce displayed and meetings held in the Congregational Church. One hundred fifty dollars was earmarked for prizes. In 1851, the fair moved to its present location on State Route 46. By 1855, the number of exhibits and the number of attendants had grown so large that the fair was extended to three days."

In this photo Martin is noted by a X. Also believed to be in the photo are his wife Catherine Wilson Neff and her nephew, Thomas Stratford, whom they raised after Tom's mother died. (Tom's mother was Margaret Wilson Stratford, sister of Caroline, who died in 1881.) Tom was born in 1880, so he would have been about four in this photo and can be seen in front of Catherine. Later this became known as the Stratford Farm, as Catherine willed it to Thomas.

Others in the photo are unnamed, but according to birth and marriage dates, they could be John E. and Hattie Neff; Sylvanus and Caroline Beard; Floyd and Mary Blackburn; or Charles and Lois Edsall.

Martin Neff at Age 80 and Family

(This biographical sketch contained interesting material, so I did not want to omit it but I have to make many corrections. J.L.N. 2002)

By Gen. Thomas W. Sanderson "20th Century History of Youngstown and Mahoning County and Representative Citizens"
Published by Biographical Publishing Co., 1907
Chicago, Ill. Pages 963-965

Martin Neff, whose fine residence farm of 210 acres is situated in Canfield Township, a mile and three-quarters east of Canfield, on the Boardman and Canfield road owns also a farm of 75 acres south and east of the agricultural fair grounds. Martin Neff was born March 25, 1827, on his present farm in Mahoning County, Ohio, and is a son of John and Elizabeth (Kline) Neff.

Conrad Neff, the grandfather of Martin, was the pioneer of the Neff family in the Western Reserve, to which he came, from Berks County (now Lehigh County), Pennsylvania, in 1802 (Correction:1804). The Pennsylvanians who accompanied him numbered 16 souls and they made the journey in the strong old Conestoga wagons, which were built to traverse forests and cross unbridged streams, as was necessary in traveling through this section of Ohio in those early days. The travelers found a little settlement of 16 log houses where now stands the flourishing town of Canfield. Conrad Neff purchased 140 acres of land in the adjacent wilderness and erected a small log cabin near the site of the present comfortable home of his grandson. It took hard work and considerable time before any crops could be raised and in the meantime, the family subsisted on wild game, which was very plentiful, deer and wild turkey being easily secured. Conrad Neff was a mason by trade and he did a large part of the mason work for his neighbors in those days, his sons doing the larger amount of clearing and land cultivating. Both Conrad Neff and wife died on this place, having reached the age of 70 (Correction: 89 years) years.

The children of Conrad Neff and wife were: Conrad; John; Henry; Mary, who married Henry Crum; Margaret, who married Henry Peatry; and Mrs. Henry Brunstetter.

John Neff, father of Martin, was born in 1795 (Correction: 1796), in Berks County (now Lehigh County), Pennsylvania, and thus was seven years (Correction: eight years) of age when he came to Mahoning County. His early educational opportunities were meager but he was reared with the practical ideas which resulted in his becoming a man of ample fortune and a highly respected citizen of his community. His first land was purchased for $2.50 an acre and he accumulated a large amount. At time possessing 600 acres. He sold a portion of this to advantage and utilized the rest in general farming and stock-raising. He was a man of sound judgment and on a number of occasions was selected to hold township offices. Politically, he was a strong Democrat, but he did not approve of the War of the Rebellion. He died one week after the first gun was fired at Fort Sumter, aged 64 years, nine months and seven days.
John Neff married Elizabeth Kline, who was born in Northampton County, Pennsylvania, and died in Mahoning County, aged 79 years, surviving her husband for 16 years. She was a daughter of Abraham Kline, who settled at an early day in Youngstown Township, Mahoning County. They had five children, two of whom died in infancy during and epidemic of scarlet fever, the others being: Eli, residing in Kansas, having reached his 86th year; Mary, deceased, who married Russell F. Starr, also deceased; and Martin, the youngest of the family.

Although his family had been settled many years in Canfield township, when Martin Neff came on the scene of life, many pioneer conditions still prevailed and his educational opportunities were limited to a short period of school attendance in the old log school-house near his home. His father was greatly interested in raising and dealing in cattle at this time and a large part of the hard work of the farm fell on young Martin and his brother. As his father drove his own cattle over the mountains and disposed of them in the eastern markets, he was away from home a great part of the time. The sons, especially Martin, developed good judgment in cattle, and he also became a dealer and on his own account drove stock as far as Pittsburgh. The business was very profitable as long as no lines for cattle transportation had been built and no great cattle ranches had yet been established in the West. Mr. Neff has lived on this farm all his life, but, has traveled on horseback all over the country and on one occasion was in the saddle for 31 days. He started out with a farm of 73 acres and when he went into the stock business was obliged to rent pasture land, but gradually acquired field after field until, at one time, he owned more than 600 acres. He has been very generous to his children, but still retains 335 acres. With the assistance of Thomas G. Stratford, whom he reared from childhood, Mr. Neff still carries on farming and stock-raising.

Mr. Neff was married April 5, 1848, to Catherine Wilson, who is one of the first children born at what is now the town of Dublin, Mahoning County, Ohio. Her parents were John and Jane (Trimble) Wilson, who were natives of Ireland and were early settlers at Dublin, this county. Mrs. Neff was reared and educated in that village.

Mr. and Mrs. Neff have had five children, as follows; John E., Caroline, Mary, Lois and Elizabeth, the last named dying at the age of seven years. John E. Neff, residing at Canfield, is engaged in a dry-goods business. He married Hattie Sanzenbacher and they have six children, Namely: Sadie; Ensign, who married Mary Porter; Martin, who married Ann Fithian, has two children; Calvin; Silas, (Correction: Cyrus) who married Miss Waters, has one child; and Roy.

Caroline, the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Neff, married G.S. Beard, and they reside in Beaver township and they have two children: Bert, who is married and has three children; and Alexander, who is engaged in the milk business in Youngstown. Mary Neff, the second daughter, who married Floyd Blackburn, died in 1900. Lois Neff, the third daughter, married Charles Edsall and they reside near the parental home and have two children, Julia and Bertha.

Politically Mr. Neff has always been in sympathy with the Democratic party. He has been elected to almost all the township offices at various times and has served with the greatest efficiency on the township board of trustees, on the board of education and as supervisor, and his advice and counsel is considered valuable by his fellow-citizens whenever any important township matter is under consideration.

Mr. Neff and family have enjoyed the benefits and pleasure of travel and are most entertaining in recalling what they have seen with their own eyes. Mr. Neff, himself, has seen a large portion of his native land west of Ohio, and in 1902 he was accompanied by his wife and some of his children on a delightful trip which extended through a large part of the most enjoyable regions of a number of States. The party started from Canfield and went west to Chicago, remaining one night in the famous Windy City, going on from there to Denver, Colorado, and then through the great mountain ranges to Sacramento and viewing the beautiful city of San Francisco before the great calamity of 1906. From there they went to Los Angeles, then covered 750 miles to Junction City, Oregon, going from there to Salem and Portland and thence to Seattle and through the great pine timber country to Spokane, Washington. On their return they visited St. Paul and other interesting cities. The enjoyment and advantages of such an extended trip can scarcely be overestimated."

CELEBRATED SIXTIETH
WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

On Sunday last at their pleasant home a mile and a half east of the village, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Neff, surrounded by their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, celebrated the sixtieth anniversary of their marriage. While the day was dark and gloomy without there was nothing but brightness and happiness within the Neff home.

Near where they now reside this aged and respected couple have spent most of their lives.
Both were born in Canfield township, Mr. Neff on March 25, 1827, and Mrs. Neff July 14, 1830, making their ages 81 and 78 years, respectively.

Mrs. Neff's maiden name was Catherine Wilson, being a daughter of John Wilson, one of the early settlers of Dublin, this township, who afterwards lived almost directly across the street from the present Neff homestead and it was there in what afterwards was known as the "old red house", and which in another location now serves as a barn, the happy couple was united in marriage, the ceremony being performed April 5, 1848, Rev. Everett of Poland officiating.

Five children blessed this union, three of whom survive-Mrs. Caroline Beard of New Buffalo, John E. Neff and Mrs. Lois Edsall of Canfield.

Industry and thrift have all their lives marked the pathway of Mr. and Mrs. Neff; always busy, happy and contented, enjoying to the full the quiet of their country home. That Mr. Neff has prospered, with the assistance of his helpmeet, is shown by the fact that he is perhaps the wealthiest farmer and stock dealer in Canfield township. He is still hale and hearty and his wife enjoys fairly good health and they have promise of celebrating many more wedding anniversaries.

Besides the children named above, Mr., and Mrs. Neff have ten grand children and six great-grandchildren, all of whom with several other guests, were present to enjoy the sumptuous dinner and the pleasures incident to the sixtieth wedding anniversary.

By Wendell Lauth and Jennifer Neff, 2005, of Trumbull and Mahoning Counties, OH.
Our search for descendants of Conrad Neff began with the idea of filing a complete report for the bicentennial celebration of Conrad Neff's 1805 home which is on the National Historic Registry. We had accumulated much documentation on Conrad's sons, but we had very little on his daughters. Nothing about daughters from Conrad's first wife, Elizabeth, appears in local Trumbull/Mahoning Co. records except for Conrad's 1829 will which names them, so our focus has been on the latter three daughters, Margaret and Magdalena and Mary.

According to in Rev. John Murray's NEFF MH LINE - Nov 29 1999, ps 13 & 14
Conrad had two wives.
"First wife was Elisabeth…..; Second wife was Magdalena Weber, daughter of Jacob Weber. His marriage to Magdalena was in 1783, so his first wife must have died in 1781/1782. Conrad married (2) Magdalena WEAVER. She was the daughter of Jacob Weaver. Magdalena died 13 Aug 1833 in Canfield, Oh. They had 6 children."

He married (1) Elizabeth.....m.1764. They had 4 children:
.M41 Ludwig (Johannes) “Lewis” NEHF b. 20 May 1767 d. 3 Nov 1829
.M42 Catharine NEFF b. 1769
.M43 Christiana NEFF b. 1771 d.1854
.M44 Elizabeth NEFF b. 1775
He married (2) Magdalena Weaver m. 1783. They had six children.
.M45 Margaret NEFF b. 1785 d. 1868
.M46 Magdalena NEFF b. 1787 d. 1868
.M47 Henry Neff b. 1789 d. 17 Feb 1825
.M48 Mary NEFF b. 1791 d. 1870
.M49 Conrad Neff b. 17 Jan 1794 d. 5 Dec 1866
.M4A John Neff b. 1796 d. 1861
[Note: John Neff - b. 2 June 1796 and d. 7 Apr 1861]

Additional correction:
Rev. John Murray's NEFF MH LINE - Nov 29 1999, p21 -
We believe this information is incorrect:
“.43 Christiana NEFF was born in Lehigh Co. PA Christiana died 1854 in OH. She married Henry BRUNSTETTER 1790 in Lehigh Co. PA He was born 1770 in Lehigh Co. PA. Henry died 1833 in OH. They had four children.”
Correction:
Henry Brunstetter married Mary Magdalena [Polly] Neff b. abt 1771. Her death date could very well be 1854 although we have not found a death date. She appears in an 1850 census and is not listed in the 1860 census. John and Jacob were nephews - not sons.
.M431 John BRUNSTETTER b. 1792
.M432 Jacob BRUNSTETTER b. 1792
.M433 Henry BRUNSTETTER b. 1798
.M434 Mary BRUNSTETTER b. 1799

Note the age gap between "Polly" and Margaret. If Mary Magdalena "Polly" Neff is the daughter of Elizabeth, it is odd that she bears the name of her future step-mother.
Conrad and his wife Magdalena [nee Weaver] came to Ohio about 1804. Their family included Margaret, 17; Henry, 15; Mary, 13; Conrad Jr., 10 and John, 8.
At the same time Mary Magdalena [Polly] nee Neff, 33, and now married to Henry Brunstetter, joined them and came to Ohio with their two young children. [The children from Conrad's first marriage were adults and they were established in Pennsylvania.]

To do list:
See if any deed work has been done in Pennsylvania - that appears to be the only way to uncover any new information [unless a family bible miraculously appears]
[It is of particular interest that Melvin Megown said that Raymond Hollenbach told him, in a personal interview - not documented - that "the Brunstetters lived over the hill from the Neff's - they were neighbors"]

Add Early Clark County Families Vital Statistics as one of our sources

Correlate church info - with Smith's Corners and add burned records where needed...
In 1810 Swiss-German settlers organized the Zion Lutheran and Reformed Church and built a log church.The Church was destroyed by fire in 1845, but the cemetery that was in its churchyard remains. Some of the old stones have German inscriptions.
On the 2nd of April 1845 a fire destroyed the log church and the records, and on the 26th of June that same year the cornerstone was laid for a new church across the road. On the 14th of December 1894 fire again destroyed the church and records. The Lutheran congregation had declined in the late 1800's and this time the Reformed congregation purchased the Lutheran interest and built their own church…ending an 84 year union of the congregations

Add Old Brunstetter cemetery info - give reasons why we believe Henry is in Old North

Review census records - neighbors are all relative
[Wendell's interpretation of 1820 census may show root of the 2 erroneous sons info]

Replace Ancestry World Tree Project: Ancestors of Boger-Brackenbury marriage info with original sources

Work on map, location & deed info from Melvin Megown - neighbors are all relative
Add pictures of original Brunstetter home and Petry, Harding sites

Source this info from Dad - “in 1868 an epidemic of smallpox took the lives of many. This smallpox epidemic lasted seven years. Because her sister, Magdalena died in the same year, 1868, a guess might be made that these women died from smallpox during the epidemic.”
