Marriage4 January 1828Reverand Simon Dreisbach married Frances Bowman, daughter of John Bowman and Catherine Wolff, on 4 January 1828.
Death12 March 1867Reverand Simon Dreisbach died on 12 March 1867 at Mt. Carroll, Carroll, Illinois, at age 65 A large concourse of friends were present last Sabbath, at the funeral rites attendant upon the burial of Elder Simon Dresbach. He was born in Union County, Pennsylvania, March 4, 1802, being the oldest son of Martin Dresbach, Esq. While he was but a boy his parents emigrated to Ohio--the then far West. On the journey he had the irreparable misfortune of losing his mother, whom the family buried before reaching their new home. When about sixteen years of age he was converted to the Christian faith, and connected himself with the "United Brethren in Christ"; and when twenty-one years of age he commenced his ministry as a preacher of the Gospel. He labored for some years very efficiently in his adopted State, but subsequently removed to his early home in Pennsylvania, where he was noted for his Christian zeal in the ministry, in connection with Bishop Pab of the "United Brethren", and Rev. John Winebrenner of the "Church of God". In 1820 he was united in marriage to Miss Frances Bowman, of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. He lived to see his famiiy of seven children grown up around him, with many grand children to bless his old age. With the exception of one grandchild, his was the first death in the family. For many of the latter years of his life he was sorely afflicted, and his physical frame became very feeble. In the hopes of recruiting his health about two years ago he removed from his Eastern home to Mount Carroll, where, during his short stay with us, he won the Good opinion of the entire community. His spirit was singularly gentile and subdued, and proved that he had long been a follower of Him who was "meek and lowly of heart". He not only had learned to face death with calmness, but eagerly longed for the dread messenger, that he might be removed to a world where sin and sorrow, disease and pain, and doubt and fear are unknown. He departed this life on the 12th inst. and on Sunday his funeral sermon was preached, by Elder Saacmakle of Chicago. The sympathies of the community are with the widow and his children in their affliction.

  • In 1898 Excerpt from "Notes and Queries: Historical, Biographical and Genealogical":
    NOTES ON THE SPYKER FAMILY One of the earliest and most prominent families in the Tulpehocken region of Berks county were the Spykers. From the fact that they lived among and intermarried with the families that came to Tulpehocken overland from Schoharie New York in 1723 and 1727 it was erroneously supposed that the Spykers had also been members of the New York colony and is so given in several histories. An examination of the list of Germans on Livingston Manor NY and other places in 1710-12 however fails to disclose the Spyker family among them. By a reference to vol xvii Pennsylvania Archives it will be seen that John sr, John jr and Peter Spyker arrived in the ship St Andrew and were qualified September 14, 1737. John, Peter and Benjamin (who being under 16 years were not named) being sons. The Spykers settled upon their arrival in Tulpehocken then Philadelphia but afterwards Berks county. The Spykers were a very intelligent and progressive people and we find them occupying responsible positions soon after their arrival. Both Benjamin and Peter were justices of the peace for many years, the former as early as 1752. They were both equally good in writing and speaking the English as well as the German language. Peter rose to great distinction, and was president of the courts of Berks county in 1780, and took a very prominent part in the colonial affairs. He was born October 27, 1711 and was marired to Maria Margaretha Seidel of Tulpehocken (b March 21, 1721) on December 2, 1742. Peter and Maria Margaretha Spyker had children as follows:
    i Philip Baltzer b Oct 17 1743 d July 25 1748
    ii John Peter b Oct 24 1745 d May 30 1747

    Judge Peter Spyker died in 1789. His will is very lengthy and elaborate. In it he mentions his sons Benjamin, Henry, Peter, and John and son in law Phil Gardner. Benjamin resided in Lebanon in 1790 Perhaps the best known of any member of the Spyker family was Colonel Henry Spyker of the Revolution He was (as above) the sixth child of Judge Peter. At the early age of 23 years he was in 1776 Adjutant of Col Patton's regiment of Pennsylvania militia, and was on duty in New Jersey, when he heard, as he records in his journal thunder, of battle. He was afterwards colonel of the Sixth battalion. On August 26, 1777, he was commissioned paymaster of the Berks county militia, a position which he occupied until July 27, 1785. During this time his services to the State were simply invaluable. Amid the clamoring of the poorly paid troops he was compelled to exhaust every means of procuring the necessary funds, sometimes supplying the money from his own individual resources. His receipt book covering this long period is a model of neatness and correctness. He expended (British Pounds) 122,847 7s 6d (over $614,235) and accounted accurately for every penny. At the close of the Revolution he engaged in the mercantile business in his native place, besides taking a deep interest in public affairs. In 1784 Mr Spyker was elected to the State Legislature, a position which he filled for three successive terms. In 1795 he erected the first brick house in the newly laid out town of Lewisburg. In 1797 he closed out his interests in Berks county and removed to Lewisburg, then in Northumberland, now in Union county, and the county seat, ten miles above Sunlxiry on the Susquehanna River. At Lewisburg he again engaged in the mercantile business. Soon after his removal to this place he was commissioned a justice of the peace in which capacity he did a vast amount of business until the period of his death, which occurred on July 1, 1817. His wife Maria Weiser Spyker born 1754 died October 11, 1829. Both are buried at Lewisburg where their graves may be seen in the cemetery. They left a number of children.

  • Benjamin Spyker was born in the Palatinate about the year 1723. His father, John Peter Spyker, emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1738, landing at Philadelphia and proceeding thence shortly afterward to Tulpehocken township, where he took up a large tract of land and effected a permanent residence. In 1744, he was licensed to carry on the business of an Indian trader; and subsequently, he enlisted in the French and India War, his business having been destroyed by the rupture between the settlers and the Indians. During this trying period, he wrote a number of important letters in reference to the cruelties of the Indians and the sufferings of the people. He was a neighbor and intimate associate of Conrad Weiser, and was a saddler by occupation. At the beginning of the Revolution, he assisted in organizing the Associators of the county and preparing them for active military service. In 1776, he represented the county in the Provincial Conference and also in the Constitutional Convention. He officiated as a justice of the peace for many years in Tulpehocken township, his district comprising the western section of the county; and there he commanded a strong social and political influence. He died in September, 1802, aged nearly 80 years. He was a brother of Peter Spyker, Judge of the County Courts.1
    History of Berks County in the Revolution 1774-1783 - Spyker, Benjamin
  • Excerpt from "The Pennsylvania-German in the Revolutionary War":
    Benjamin Spyker - Born in the Palatinate about 1723. His father John Peter Spyker emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1738 and settled in Tulpehocken township of Berks county. During the French and Indian War he was a close neighbor to Col. Conrad Weiser, and actively aided him in his efforts of defense against the savages, especially in the early part of that war, when his home was, on various occasions, used as a place of rendezvous. At the beginning of the Revolution he assisted in organizing the Associators of the county and preparing them for active military service. He represented Berks county in the Provincial Conference of June 18, 1776 and in the Constitutional Convention of July 15, 1776. He served as a justice of the peace for many years. His death occurred in September 1802.
  • Excerpt from "The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography":
    SPYKER BENJAMIN of Berks County a native of the Palatinate was born about 1723. His father, John Peter Spyker, came to Pennsylvania in 1738, arriving at Philadelphia in September of that year. He settled in Tulpehocken Township, Berks County, and took up a large tract of land. The first we hear of the son Benjamin is in 1744, when he was licensed as an Indian trader. He served as an officer in the Provincial service during the French and Indian wars and at the beginning of the Revolution assisted in organizing the Associators in his county. He was a member of the Provincial Conference of June 18, 1776 and of the Convention of the 15th of July following. For many years prior to his death in September 1802, Capt Spyker served as a justice of the peace for his neighborhood. His son Henry, who was commissioned paymaster of the Berks County militia August 26, 1777, was also a justice of the peace. In 1799 he removed to East Buffalo Township, Union County, where he died about 1813.
