Descendant Chart for George Heinrich Ernsberger

Note*: David Arnspiger Excerpt from a book entitled "Biographical Souvenir of State of Texas - F.A.Battey & Co (1889) page 36
" Among earliest settlers - only one settler west of them...
     DAVID ARNSPIGER, father, native of Jessamine county, Ky, was the third of eleven children, others being Samuel, Stephen, Henry, George, John, Catherine, Mary, Sallie, America and Frances. As a young man he went to Greene co, IL and there married Jane Lampkin, daugher of Wood Lampkin, a native of North Carolina, and early settler of Illinois... Moved to Texas in 1844, settling up 640 acres as a member of the Peters Colony, and died September, 1870.
     
I have some very old correspondence from about 1975 or so from W.M. Arnspiger. It is as follows:
"David Arnspiger, being of German parentage, could speak only very broken English, according to my grandmother, Mrs. W. J. Arnspiger. Many times she said, he had difficulty making himself understood. He was a hard worker, thrifty, and a good provider for his family. He was an ardent chruch goer, riding a horse a distance of some 10 or 12 miles one way each sunday morning to the nearest Baptish church in Highland. The old chruch has long been gone, but a fair sized cemetery surrounds the site now. David was a farmer his entire life, and died the 9th day of Juen 1870, at his home 3 miles southwest of Van Alstyne, TX. He is buried beside his wife in a little country cemetery called the Alexander Cemetery, along with a number of other early pioneer settlers of this area. The cemetery is well kept by an association composed of the descendents of many of those old timers, who still live close by. Jane Arnspiger, David's wife, lived until March 2, 1894, outliving him by some 24 years, but never remarried. They have one granddaughter still living here in Van Alstyne, Mrs. Lee Taylor, age 92. Two other grandaughters live here also, and two grandsons. The descendents of David and Jane will be found on another page."

Descendant Chart for George Heinrich Ernsberger

Birth*: Barbara was born in Jessamine, KY, on 13 August 1821.2
She was the daughter of John Arnspiger and Catherine Funk.
Marriage*: She married Abraham Houser III in Jersey, IL, on 14 September 1842.3
Death*: Barbara died on 2 June 1888 in Family farm, Logan, IL, at age 66. This is from an entry in son-in-law J.p.. Hieronymus' journal. "Grandma Howser Hanley jumps in stockwell and is drowned north of barn." The next day's entry says, "Grandma's funeral and burial." Across the page in the leger are the following expense entries: Coffin 34, Shroud 7, Hearse 6.50. (Grandma Hanley) Telegram to E. Lorey .50."

The following is from the Atlanta Argus, June 8, 1888, page 4, column 3. Mrs. Barbara Hanley Takes her own Life. The news was brought to town last Saturday forenoon that Mrs. Barbara Hanley, an aged lady, had ended her life by drowning in a well on the farm of her son-in-law J.P. Hieronymus, one mile west of town. The particulars of the tragedy are as follows: Mrs. Hanley came here from Kansas last fall to reside with her daughter, Mrs. J.P. Hieronymus. For the past ten or twelve years she has been in very poor mental and bodily health, and for the past eighteen months has been constantly under the doctor's care. She was almost constantly complaining that she believed she was losing her mind. In 1849 her father and husband went to California, where they both died inside of two weeks of their arrival. This sad blow nearly made her crazy, and she always contended after that her mind was in a measure unsettled from its effects. On Thursday she appeared to be in better health and spirits than usual, and ate a hearty supper, but Friday she complained of being ill and was low spirited. Saturday morning she arose as usual, ate a light breakfast, put on her shawl and started out, as the members of the family thought, for usual morning walk. Being absent longer than usual Mrs. Hieronymus sent one of the younger girls to look for her. A continued search was unsuccessful, but coming back near a stock well she saw the old lady's shawl beside it, and the fear at once seized her that her grandmother had jumped in the well. She ran to the house and other members of the family at once hurried to the spot, where they found Mrs. Hanley dead in the water. There being no men folks at home, Jack Brandt and Fred Huber, who were at work in a neighboring field, were called and the body was taken from the water and carried to the house. The news was brought to town and coroner Birmingham notified, who came up on the afternoon train. A jury was empaneled, who, after listening to the evidence, returned a verdict of suicide. The act was evidently premeditated, as she had taken off her bonnet and shawl before throwing herself in the water. Her death is a sad blow to her many friends. The funeral took place Sunday at the Ewing church, Rev. Holton officiating..4
Burial*: Her body was interred on 3 June 1888 in Logan, IL, in Mountjoy Cemetery.4
