2 "Burnie" caught polio very severely in his early/mid '30's - he lived out his life in an iron lung. Bentz, Burton Burnell (I3880)
3 "David Bentz, a veteran of the Civil War, now living retired on his excellent property in Washington township, York Co., PA., was born in this county, in Warrington township, in September, 1842.

Until he was eleven years old Mr. Bentz attended the school known by his family name, and then went to work on the farm. At the age of nineteen years he enlisted in the army as a teamster and drove a Government team from 1862 until 1863. He then re-enlisted in Company E, 200th P.V.I., and participated in several severe engagements, notably Fort Steadman and Petersburg. He was mustered out at Harrisburg in May, 1865, having a record of never being off duty in all this long period. He had many adventures and on two occasions came very near sudden death, a bullet once tearing his clothing from his right shoulder and another tearing away a part of his shoe.

After his return from the army the young man worked for his father and for neighboring farmers for about five years, and then spent two years working at Deardorff's mill. After his marriage in 1872 he spent two years on a farm belonging to his father-in-law, and then rented other farms until 1891, when he bought his present property, which consists of 105 acres formerly belonging to Adam Minear...

In 1872 Mr. Bentz was married to Catherine Gentzler, daughter of John and Catherine (Speck) Gentzler. They were some of Washington township's most prominent people. Their old homestead is now owned by C.C. Kimmel."

The son of Jacob L. & Elizabeth Slothower Bentz and the husband of Catherine Ann Gentzler Bentz, whom he married May 18, 1872. In 1860, he was a farmer presumably living in Warrington Township, York County. He stood 5' 10" tall and had dark hair and blue eyes.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in Mechanicsburg, Cumberland County, August 25, 1864, with Co. E, 200th Pa Inf, serving at the rank of private until honorably discharged May 30, 1865.

5 "It is with deep sadness that we have to announce the death of long time photographer and club member, Edwin Flowers. Ed will be remembered as a stalwart in dark room photography working in color, black and white, infra-red and bas relief. Ed joined Photography West on October 1, 1986 and died on October 2, 2010. Even though Ed didn’t get into serious photography until he joined our club, he was a master photographer with an unbelievable eye. He previously was quoted as saying his aim was to “make the ordinary look interesting.” Photography was his passion spending many, many hours in our Lab both working and monitoring. Ed was born in Hershey, Pennsylvania on January 17, 1927 retiring to Sun City West with his wife, Louise, from Boulder, Colorado. Louise preceded him in death in 2006. He was a meteorologist by profession. In 1956 he was a member of Deep Freeze, the first wintering over expedition to the South Pole. He also worked on subsequent expeditions. Over the 24 years that Ed was a member of our club, his contributions were invaluable. He will be missed by all."

14 2 dead in apparent road rage crash into bakery
Posted: Nov 19, 2010 5:24 AM EST Updated: Nov 19, 2010 2:37 PM EST
MARYSVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) - Two people died when a minivan crashed into a Perry County bakery Thursday night in an incident police are investigating as a case of road rage.
State police have identified the victims as 40-year-old Jodi Shinault and 42-year-old David Wevodau, both of Enola.
Shinault's minivan had struck the back of a Volkswagen Jetta driven by 23-year-old Sean McCaleb as both vehicles were traveling north on Route 11/15 in the Enola area, according to police. Both drivers continued into Marysville at a high rate of speed, with the minivan closely following the Jetta, until McCaleb made a left turn onto Park Avenue, police said. Investigators said Shinault failed to make the turn, struck the rear of the Jetta again, then continued through the parking lot of Specialty Bakers and crashed into the side of the building before the minivan was launched 30 feet into the air and landed nose down in the basement at around 11:20 p.m. Shinault and Wevodau were pronounced dead at the scene. Police said they were not wearing seatbelts. "They were able to get a medic in there early on to check, and they were confident the victims were deceased," public information officer John Bruetsch said. "At that point, it became a recovery operation instead of a rescue effort." A bakery employee was taken to a hospital with minor injuries. McCaleb and his passenger, both Enola residents, were not injured. "Anytime you have aggressive driving and road rage you can produce deadly results, and this should serve as a reminder how deadly these acts are," state police spokesman Trooper Tom Pinkerton said.

15 24th of 9th mo 1767 JESSE COOK - MARY WIERMAN
Whereas JESSE COOK son of PETER COOK of warrington in the county of york and province of Pennsylvania and SARAH his wife and MARY WIERMAN the daughter of HENRY WIERMAN of huntington and County aforesaid and PRISCILLA his wife . . . this twenty fourth day of the ninth month in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and sixty seven . . . at huntington in the county aforesaid.

1. The original house, according to my grandfather William R. Cooke, was the first floor east end. This appears to have been two bedrooms and a kitchen, which also must have served as a general living area. The floor of this part of the house is elevated above the floor of the remainder of the house, added later. As the original house is the only part under which there is a cellar, this appears to account for the difference in level. This area has many springs, including one just down the hill from the house, so it is possible to speculate that underground water prevented digging the cellar deep enough to bring the house floor to ground level.Jesse Cook married Mary Wierman in 1767. He was age 23 at the time. Presumably the first part of the house was built about this time. The date under the eaves at the peak of the house of 1785, I take to be the date of the addition of the second floor. One reason for assuming the first part was built earlier lies in the will of Jesse's father, Peter Cook. Peter came to York Co. in 1745 and his house, now gone, was several miles south of this one. In his will (Peter), dated 1/17/1777 (Will Book F, page 246 at York Co. Courthouse) he left his own farm to his youngest son, Peter. This implies that his other sons (Jesse, Joseph and Samuel) had established themselves elsewhere. The size of the original land holdings is not known to me but the taxables of Monoghan Twp. (which at the time included present Carroll and Franklin Twp's.) for 1783 lists, "Jesse Cook, 105 acres, 1 tanyard, 143 (pounds)." The mention of the tanyard in 1783 makes it clear that a residence existed prior to 1785.

2. By will dated 2/16/1815 (Will Book O, page 66, York Co. Courthouse) Jesse Cook left everything he owned to his son John. John, however, was charged with paying various legacies to his brothers and sisters. The will states that if this is too great a burden to him any of the others could have the farm upon paying John 600 (pounds).

3. By will dated 7/14/1858 (Will Book W, page 249, York Co. Courthouse) John Cook left the farm to his son John. He refers to the farm as the one where his son "now resides with me....100 acres more or less." He also mentions "...any of my farms...the one I now live on or the one occupied by the said widow...of Walker Cook, deceased." The spring house is also mentioned. John Cook, Sr. married Hannah Walker and John Cook, Jr. married a second cousin, Lydia Marsh Walker (Hannah and Lydia thus being first cousins once removed). They did not get along and the will of John, Sr. contains the following: "...and whereas the wife of my said son John Cook, Jr. has for sometime since and is now acting in an unbecoming and ungenerous manner towards me and my said wife, in view of which conduct it is my will and I hereby declare that she, John's wife, shall never have any interest, claim on or demand into or out of the Real Estate I hereinbefore bequested to the said John. However it is my will that the right of said premises shall be in the said John absolutely forever so that he may use, enjoy and dispose of the same absolutely by sale, bequest or otherwise but not to his said wife directly or indirectly."

4. John Cook, Jr. apparently died intestate. However, a deed dated 4/1/1891 (Deed Book 9C, page 602, York Co. Courthouse) is a transaction between the heirs of John Cook, Jr. being William R. Cook, Mary A. Cook, Andrew B. Shearer & his wife Eliza, and Ruth Emma Bair (Cook). The farm described as partly in Carroll Twp. and partly in Warrington Twp. was sold to William R. Cooke by the other heirs. It was shortly after this that William added the "e" to his name.

5. The farm next went to Ruth Cooke, daughter of William Ramsey Cooke (and my father's sister), probably by sale during his lifetime. There appears to be no will and I have not checked the deed records.

6. Ruth Cooke sold the farm to Niles Shearer, a son of Andrew Shearer, about 1953. (July 1953-rlc, III)

7. Niles Shearer sold the farm to his grandson Carl Shearer, about 1978. It still consists of about 120 acres.

19 According to an extract of a volume, page header "Cumberland County", pg. 637, among others:

"Jacob L. Bentz was born in Lancaster County, and was a farmer all his life. When a small boy his parents moved to Warren Township, York County, and there he died in 1878, aged seventy-two years. He married (first) Elizabeth Slothour, of Lancaster County, who died when our subject (John E. Bentz) was sixteen years old. The father re-married, but there were no children to the second union. The children born to Jacob L. and Elizabeth Bentz were: John E., of this sketch; Susanna, deceased, Mrs. Arnold; Michael, deceased; Mary, Mrs. John Wireman, deceased; Jacob, a farmer in York County; Lewis, near Dillsburg, York County; Rebecca, Mrs. Samuel Deardorf, of Wellsville; Leah, Mrs. Rudy Sanders, of Wellsville; Adam, near Wellsville; and Fred, also settled near Wellsville.

From handwritten notes from files: "Jacob L. Bentz and elizabeth Slothower were Mennonite or Amish. Their sons, Jacob', name is on the gettysburg Register."
Bentz, Jacob Lau (I3474)
20 According to an extract of a volume, page header "Cumberland County", pg. 637, among others:

"JOHN E. BENTZ, one of the well-known railroad men of Cumberland county and a resident of Shiremanstown, was born Oct. 14, 1828, in Warren Township, York Co., PA, son of Jacob L. Bentz.
John E. Bentz, of this sketch, was reared on his father's farm, and attended school two months each winter. The summers were spent in farm work, and it is still a matter of some little pride with Mr. Bentz that he was able to plow and harrow when he was but nine years old. When twenty-three years of age, he went to White Pigeon, Mich., where he was manager for two farms for William Armitage, a substantial man of that place at a later date, but for two years he remained behind in York county. After Mr. Armitage took charge of his property, Mr. Bentz returned and farmed the home farm for the two succeeding years, and during this time his wife, Miss Susan Burkheimer, of York Co., died.

After the death of his wife Mr. Bentz sold out his interests in Yrok county, and moved to Newville, Cumberland county, where he engaged in various kinds of work from 1858 to 1865, selling mules, teaming, farm work, etc., and in 1863 he assisted in the building of the Richmond furnace at Loudon.

In 1859 Mr. Bentz was married to Mary M. Grubb, born at Drytown, Cumberland county. Her father, John Grubb, was born in Lancaster county, and there married Elizabeth Ebersole. They lived for a time at Drytown, afterward moving to Newville, where Mr. Grubb worked on the Cumberland Valley RR until his death, residing at the time in Shiremanstown. Mr. Grubb was sixty-eight years of age, and was survived by his widow until she was seventy-five. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Grubb were: Mrs. Bentz; Daniel, of Wauseon, Ohio; Rebecca, who died single; Miss Lydia, of Shiremanstown; Lizzie, Mr.s William A. McMullen, of Wellsville, PA; Emma, Mrs. Lemuel Shafer, of Shiremanstown; and Sarah, Mrs. Jacob Straining, of New Kingstown, Cumberland county.

In 1866 Mr. Bentz settled in Shiremanstown, and went to work for the Cumberland Valley RR as a section hand. He acted as substitute foreman many times before he was made a permanent foreman in 1879, on the section between White Hill and Mechanicsburg. During this long period Mr. Bentz has seen many changes in railroad working, and the adoption of many improvements which lessen the dangers to the public, and place less responsibility on the road employees. His son, John Grubb Bentz, was for seven years agent for the Cumberland Valley RR at Shiremanstown, and is now its agent at Winchester, Virginia.

Mr. Bentz had one son born to his first marriage, Samuel Jacob, who is now a resident of Burbank, Ohio, and who married Susanna Nosker. The children of his second marriage were two sons, John G. and William. The former, as mentioned above, is a resident of WInchester, VA, and married to Rosanna Lambert. The latter is a resident of Shiremanstown, and married Emma Straining, now deceased.

Prior to coming to Shiremanstown, Mr. Bentz and family were connected with the Methodist Church at Newville, to which he was always a liberal contributor. They now attend the Church of God at Shiremanstown. He has always been identified with the Republican Party, and has been an active supporter of its principles, but has never sought political honors. He has made many warm personal friends, and has always worked for the advancement of education, for twenty-two years serving as school director. He is held in esteem by his employers, and fulfills to the best of his ability the demands of domestic and social life." 
Bentz, John E (I3493)
21 According to Dauphin County Birth Records, which were kept from 1893 - 1906, Frederick lived in the following places: 1894 - Calder's Farm in Susquehanna Township, 1896 - 1897 - Ehrman B. Mitchell Farm, 1899 - Coxestown and 1900 - Susquehanna Township North Precinct. Frederick's occupation is listed as either a farmer or laborer until 1899 when he found a job with the Pennsylvania Railroad (his brother George has been working on the railroad since 1895). Frederick began as a laborer around 1899 and advanced to the position as Track Foreman in 1900. Wevodau, Frederick (I3245)

35 After 1910 we lost William….In 1912-1914 Cora lived with a Mrs. Mary A. Wennell at 26 Balm Street, 1915-1916 Cora lived with a Mrs. Mary A. Wennell, and Jean who was a Clerk, and they all lived at 28 N Summit Street. 46
Where is the family? Did Cora die around 1917 and did William marry again to Margaret Jean Miller? We did find a September 12th 1918, WW-I Draft record for William John Wennell, a pipe fitter who registered in York County. His wife was Jean Wennell, and he worked for Hanley and Company, Chicago Cook County Illinois. 47 This William Wennell has a birth date of February 22nd 1874, and is a pipe fitter and steam fitter. The family continues in 1920 Enola, but the wife’s name is Margaret Jean. They later live in 1930- 1940 Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania. 
Wennell, William (I6454)
36 After her parents divorce, Sarah Comp was adopted by her Bentz grandparents. She was raised as part of the John W. Flowers family. This adoption was not generally known until after the death of Salome Margaret Bentz Flowers. Adoption happened between August 21, 1914 and August 11, 1917. Comp, Sarah Anna (I1045)
37 After the family moved to Londongrove, Peter began courting Sarah Gilpin. She lived on her father's farm 12 1/2 miles to the east. The Gilpin's were early settlers in Pennsylvania and came of a very prominent family in England. (The Gilpin ancestry leads to practically all the royal families of Europe, through John of Gaunt) In 1730, Peter and Sarah were married at Concord Mtg. In 1744 they moved to Warrington with their family of 4 boys and 4 girls. By 1730, Warrington Meeting was already functioning, but the town of York had just been organized. Peter recieved a land warrant in 1744 for 200 acres in Manchester, Lancaster Co. Later in the same year, he received a second warrant for 400 acres in York Co., about 1 1/2 miles southwest of Wellsville as the crow flies. Actually these grants were in the same place, as York Co. was originally part of Lancaster Co. Cook, Peter (I2019)
