     Charter member and deacon of Christ Lutheran Church, Strochburg, Berks Co., PA. 1748, high delegate representative to the first organization convention. Well educated, very proficient in reading & writing. He came to American with his widowed mother and his sister. Martinus was a delagate to the high Lutheran Ministerium in Philadelphia in 1748-1752. He was a charter member and deacon of Christ Lutheran Church, Strouchburg, Berks Co., PA. He was a farmer. He and Maria left Schoharif, NY, in 1723 with a body of 150 men, women and children and settled in Meyerstown, Lebanon Co., PA (Woschester Co.). The company cut a road from Schoharie, NY, to the head waters of the Susquehanna River, down which they floated their flatboats and canoes holding their women, children, and household goods. They drove their cattle along the banks of the stream. When they reached what is now Middletown, PA, they turned up the Swatara Creek and finally landed at their intended destination in the western part of Berks County and the eastern part of Lebanon County (then a part of Lancaster Co.), with none but Indians for their neighbors. Here they squatted, each family picking their own particular spot to build a home. Martin and Maria Elizabeth built their home on a small branch of the Tulpehocken Creek, about 1 1/2 miles north and east of what is now Myerstown, Lebanon Co., PA. Martin bought his land, 329 acres, on 2 Nov 1739, after having "squatted" on it as early as 1727. Our Keystone Families - profile of Martin Batdorf family.

Suffice it to say that the Batdorf family for several generations had been, for that period, well-educated people, and as expected, Johannes, Jr.'s son, JOHN JACOB PETER BATDORF, followed the family tradition, and in 1680 was listed as a Professor. JOHANNES JACOB PETER BATDORF, with his wife Anna Maria
Catharina, left their native Switzerland in search of a better life where they would no longer have to endure the terrors and horrors of the Religious persecutions. They lived for several years in Palatine,
Germany, where their five children were born. In 1707-08 it was so cold in the Rhine Basin that their crops, fruit trees, grape vines and meadows were all killed by the frost. Rivers were ice bound and even the sea froze along the coasts. Louis XIV of France taxed unbearably, and southwest Germany was plundered time and again by the French and German robber Barons. This land knew no rest, having suffered wars and religious persecution of its people. The ravages of wars and the persecutions of the Protestants made them fearful, so during the summer of 1708, Professor Johannes Jacob Peter Bardorf, with his wife and five children, left their home in the small village of Badorf, near Stuttgart, Germany, and traveled the tedious trip by boat down the Rhine River to Rotterdam, Holland. From Rotterdam, they were transported by ship to England to await further transportation to America. Like the Hans Adam Walborn family with whom they had become acquainted, they joined the thousands who took advantage of Queen Anne's offer to transport families to America, with the intention of establishing a colony in present New York State. Their trip was a long and extremely hard one, and it was not without tragedy for the Batdorf family. Johannes Jacob Peter Batdorf, the father, died in London in 1709, and three of their children perished on the journey to America -- either on the ship, or shortly after they arrived at New York, NY., 10 June 1710, as we find only the widow Anna Catharina Batdorf, and a son and daughter survived the journey to the new land.
