8. Find A Grave Memorial# 18913365 – Danner/Tanner, Michael 1696-1781
• Birth: 1696
• Death: 1781
• Michael and family left Hanover, Germany in 1715 and first settled near Germantown.
Later, in 1727 he moved to the Pequea Settlement of Lancaster County according to article in “Brethren Roots and Branches”, Vol 3, Dec1981. Some confusion exists because the “Mennonite Encyclopedia” refers to Michael Danner as “an early member of the Mellinger Mennonite congregation of Lancaster County” and suggests he crossed the river ( Susquehanna) by 1719. In 1728, the Indians appealed to Governor Gordon to have certain settlers removed from the lands west of the Susquehanna River. Among them was Michael Danner. He was considered an intruder on lands which the Indians had not yet released to the white settlers. The authorities duly removed them. Refer to
“History of York County, PA” by Rupp, pg. 347.
In 1732, Samuel Blunston, land agent for the Penn’s, wrote to the Governor about some men arrested by associates of Col. Thomas Cresaps of Maryland and taken to Annapolis. Included was Michael Danner. Although Gov. Samuel Ogle of Maryland later argued that the German settlers west of the Susquehanna had not been granted patents, at least 50 of these families had agreed to claim land under Maryland jurisdiction by 1736. A letter signed by 50 Germans renouncing their Maryland affiliation dated August 11, 1736 infers this. (Michael Tanner et al). See Archives of Maryland 28:100-101. Until 1736, most of the Germans who crossed the Susquehanna River were only too willing to accept Maryland jurisdiction. In 1732, the tax collector reported at least 400 persons living west of the river who paid taxes to Lancaster County (History of Pa, W.H. Eagle, 1876, pg.1169).
On 17 Sep 1734, Michael Danner received from Samuel Blunston, land agent of the Penn’s in Columbia, PA, a license to settle 200 acres on the west side if the Susquehanna River about six miles southwest of John Hendricks ( Quaker of Wrightsville). This would be somewhere near Mt. Pisgah or Canadochly Church in what later became Lowe Windsor Twp.
In 1736, Michael Danner apparently was arrested a second time by Maryland authorities. Records of the Sheriff of Anna Arundel County of 4 Jan 1736 mention taking prisoner, Michael Tanner of Baltimore County, for having driven some fellows from his home in Pennsylvania.
In August 1739 he was one of the six Commissioners named to lay out a road from Wrightsville to the home of Adam Forney at Digges Choice and later Hanover. The road extended by way of Kitzmiller’s Mill to the Province line and was known as “Monocacy Road”. Some claim that originally the family was Mennonite, but Gleim thought not.
Michael Danner is listed as the first leader of the German Baptists (Dunkard’s) west of the Susquehanna. In 1770, Danner is listed as a member of the Conewago Congregation (Black Rock Church of the Brethren).
At one time, Michael Danner owned about 290 acres of land in the vicinity of Porter’s Siding in Heidelberg Twp. The Tax Lists of Hanover and Heidelberg Twp. for 1778-80 include Michael Danner. Heidelberg Twp. created in 1750 from northern portion of Manheim Twp.
“Was Michael Danner a Mennonite?” is a six page article in the Dec 1981 Brethren Roots and Branches, quarterly publication of the Brethren Genealogists of Southern PA, 2490 Middle St., York, PA 17404. Article suggests that he was a German Baptist with Mennonite neighbors. The article reports that he was an aggressive, enterprising German who was exceptional both in character and in his abilities. He spoke both English and German. The book, History and Families of the Black Rock Church of the Brethren, by Elmer Q. Gleim has numerous references to him and indicates he was of the Brethren faith.
An Act of August, 1749, in the Provincial Council of Philadelphia named six men “to view and lay off a new County (York). Danner was among them. In 1755 he was appointed as one of “His Majesty’s Justices of the Peace”, (History of York County, Prowell).

In 1728 settled at Cabin Creek mouth on Susquehanna River he got into a dispute over land. When arrested by Maryland civil authorities placed in prison in Annapolis. After his release became permanent settler of York County ( PA Ger. Soc. Vol. 24 & 25, pg. 57) Tanner (Danner), with a number of Mennonites from Lancaster Co. settled in the rich farming lands of the Conewago Valley near “Digg’s Choice” on the banks of the Codorus,
Heidelberg Twp. in 1738. This colony of Mennonites was the nucleus of Bair’s Hanover Church. Names of other settlers here were: Hershey, Brubaker, Bair (Bare), Kauffman, Frantz, Shank, Garber, Bechtel, Bauman, Thoman, Rudisill).
Danner spoke both German and English. Appointed County Commissioner in 1749 to help lay out York County. Bair’s Hanover was first Mennonite congregation in York County to erect a church (3.5 east of Hanover on Hanover- Spring Grove Road). First structure was of logs (1746). Peter Blasser was first known ordained Mennonite minister in the Michael Danner settlement. He had arrived in 1739 and had been a Mennonite prisoner from Trachselwald in Berne. Later his children settled near Stony-Man near Blue Ridge, VA. Adam Forney had settled there earlier (1730).

Bair Mennonite Meetinghouse (Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, USA)
The Bair Mennonite Meetinghouse (Mennonite Church) is located three miles (six km) east of Hanover, York County, Pennsylvania. On 14 May 1775 Michael Danner, Sr., of Hanover, a York County Commissioner when the county was laid out, obtained from the Penn heirs with preachers John Shenk and Jacob Keagy, deacons John Welty and James Miller, 12 acres for a meetinghouse, schoolhouse, and burying ground. Possibly the Lutherans and Reformed had an interest in the schoolhouse. The first meetinghouse was used until 1860, and the second house until 1908, when the house used in the 1950s was erected. It was a part of the Hostetter-Hanover circuit of the Lancaster Mennonite Conference of which Richard Danner was bishop in the 1950s. The circuit membership was 122.

10. License to Settle
• Danner … received a license, Sept. 17, 1734, to settle “200 acres of land on the west side of the Susquehanna River…about six miles southwesterly from John Hendricks”. The license was granted by Samuel Blunston who promised a regular land grant as soon as the Indians would release their claims on the lands. Lord Baltimore issued warrants against settlers in the disputed lands (southern York Co.). In May 1736, Thomas Cresap and 300 militiamen came to the Susquehanna River to survey the lands from the Susquehanna River to the Codorus Creek. Cresap waited for more militiamen from Maryland to take prisoner all who lived between Wright’s Ferry and the Codorus Creek because they refused to acknowledge themselves as tenants of Lord Baltimore. When the MD militiamen began to seize settler’s property/goods, Danner represented the citizens and succeeded in having the militiamen withdraw for two weeks. The (York Co.) settlers appealed for protection from Pennsylvania. Gov. Ogle of MD was angry and offered 100 pounds for the arrest of each person who signed the petition. There is some evidence that Danner was taken twice to Maryland for “trespassing” in York Co.
In 1736, Michael Danner appeared before a Maryland court to repurchase the properties.
According to the Conewago settlement and tombstone records, the family of Michael and Anna Danner were:
• Jacob (1727-1799) married Elizabeth Boechtel, daughter of Samuel Boechtel of Manheim Twp. Jacob became the presiding elder of the Codorus Cong. and later moved to MD where he helped establish the Lingamore (Locust Grove) church.
• Catharine ( 1728 – 1790) married George Wehrly
• Anna (Dec 6, 1730-Jan 10, 1804) married Stefan Petry (1729-1793) Stefan and Anna are buried in the Chestnue Grove Ch Cem.
• Michael Jr. (1734 -1782) married Susanna Kehr whose family was Mennonite.
• Philip (1735 – 1829) married Markret (Margaret) Millheim, daughter of George Millheim of Manheim Twp.
• Elizabeth (Nov. 13, 1736-April 21, 1798) married Christian Bear (June 10, 1733-April 17, 1795)
• Heinrich (Feb 12, 1742-Feb 5, 1814) married Elizabeth Kehr (Sept 28, 1744-June 17, 1828) Heinrich was a minister in the Little Conewago church.
• Maria (Dec 24, 1744-Feb 18, 1816) twice married (1) Heinrich Hohf (d. Aug 9, 1783) and to (2) Daniel Utz.

12. General Notes:
• Michael came from Germany via Rotterdam on the James Goodwell, David Crockett, ship’s master. The 200 passengers and 53 families were listed as Palatines. They arrived in Philadelphia on Sep 27, 1727. He was a Swiss Mennonite and a member of the Bair Mennonite Meeting house in Hanover, York Co, Pennsylvania. He received the title of “King’s Commissioner of Highways for Pennsylvania in 1734. About 1760 when his son, Jacob led a group of settlers from York Co, PA to Frederick Co, MD, Michael and sons Jacob and Henry ended up platting/surveying the Monocacy Road down the west side of the Monocacy River (with the Blue Ridge Mountains back of it.) It became a main route of settlement from Lancaster Co., PA, down the river, across the Blue Ridge at Frederick to the Potomac River (north of Harper’s Ferry), on to Virginia, Tennessee and the Carolinas. This was called the Monocacy Trail. He also surveyed the York Road which was a very important route that linked York, PA to the Port of Baltimore. In 1770, he was listed as a prominent member to the Conewago German Baptist Brethren Church. (CL-514, 526) There is some indication that Michael also had a daughter named Mary Danner, as a John Kehr leaves a will in 1794 in York Co, PA that refers to his wife Mary and his loving brother in law, Henry Danner. (CL-526) 4 Michael married Anna BEND about 1726 in , , , Germany.

13. Bair’s Meeting House
• Bair’s Meeting House was a Mennonite meeting house located about 3 miles east of Hanover on the York Road. The land on which it was built was granted to Michael Danner, in trust for the Mennonite congregation, on August 8, 1774 by John and Thomas Penn, sons of William Penn.
Michael Danner was a prominent man of his day and, in 1749, was one of the commissioners appointed to lay off York County. The grant to Michael Danner was “in trust to and for the only proper use of the Mennonites, their heirs and successors forever”. For many years, the Mennonite services had been held in the homes of members. For the purpose of erecting a building, for a school and for religious worship, a tripartite indenture and agreement was made May 14, 1775, between Michael Danner, Sr., then of Hanover on the first part, John Shenck, of Manheim and Jacob Keagy of Heidelberg, ministers, of the Mennonites, John Welty and James Miller, both of Manheim (now Heidelberg), elders of the Mennonite congregation of the second part, and Adam Eichelberger of the third part, concerning the disposition of the land, which was named “Danner’s Repository”, and when granted adjoined lands of Michael Newman, Andrew Shenck and Adam Eichelberger, and contained twelve acres. It was agreed upon by the heads of the congregation, “to hold equally in common, and for the use of said congregation erect a schoolhouse and meetinghouse, and locate a place to bury the dead, and for the use of the German Lutherans and German Reformed Calvinists, who may join in erecting a schoolhouse thereon, and supporting a schoolmaster, and also for a place of burial for their dead.” They then released unto Adam Eichelberger the right of being a trustee for the Lutheran and Reformed congregations and for a school building, but “reserving and retaining for themselves entire use and their successors forever; a house of worship to be erected on some part of said land when said Mennonite congregation may see fit to erect one.”

14. The Palatines:
• The Story of the Palatines: Introduction
This presentation was given at the Annual General Meeting of the UELAC in June, 2006 by Joan Lucas UE to the branch Genealogists’ Workshop.
The presentation was prepared by George Anderson UE and it covered information which he found over the years while researching the Palatines.
What is a Palatine? A Palatine is usually defined as someone who came from along the Rhine River in the Palatinate of South Western Germany. However this term can be a misnomer. Many inhabitants of the Palatinate came from elsewhere. For example, Huguenots (French Protestants) fled from France and Calvinists fled from the Netherlands to the Palatinate. Other families migrated from Switzerland to the area. They all became Palatines. This term was generally applied to all German Immigrants who arrived in America.
What was the Palatinate? The Palatinate consisted of two small regions in southern Germnay near the Rhine River. The Lower or Rhenish Palatinate which was also called the Pfalz was located in southwester German east of Luxembourg along both sides of the Middle Rhine River. The Pfalz included the present German State of Mainz, Treves, Lorraine, Alsace, Baden and Wurtemberg. Heidelberg was its capital. The name Pfalz” was derived from the Latin word “palatinus” which meant palace or castle. The Upper (Bavarian) Palatinate was located in northern Bavaria, on both sides of the Naab River as it flows south toward the Danube, and extended eastward to the Bohemian Forest. The Palatines were ruled by Counts who later became Electors in the 14th century. The boundaries of the Palatinate varied with the military successes and political fortunes of the Counts Palatine. TOday the Palatinate land west of the Rhine River is part of France. The rest of the Palatinate has been absorbed into other German States.
Origin of Palatine Name. The name, Palatine is derived from the title of the ruler of the Palatinate which means the Ruler of the Principality of the Palatine. The term Palatine itself goes back to Imperial Rome. The palace of the Caesars was situated on the Palatine Hill. The troops guarding the palace were also referred to as the “palatini”.
Why did the Palatines leave Germany? Different sources cite different reasons. Here are a few. The Palatinate was the centre of a deadly conflict between the Protestant German states and France during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Between 1684 and 1713 there were two wars, the War of the Grand Alliance of England, Holland and the German Protestant States against France, and the War of the Spanich Succession. The War of the Spanish Succession resulted from the death of Charles II of Spain without an heir. Except for four years of relative peace there was almost continuous war between 1684 and 1713. The troops of the French King Louis XIV ravaged the Palatinate, sacking the major cities, burning homes, stealing property, massacring people, destroying crops and laying waste to farms. An unexpected cold winter then occurred in 1709. The people had had enough and began to leave even though forbidden to do so upon pain of death by the rulers of the Palatinates. The Palatines fled down the Rhine to Rotterdam, Holland and then to England. The British Government circulated the “Golden Book” which was written by Reverend Kockerthal, throughout the Palantinate. It described British America as teh Land of milk and honey.
Final Remarks of the Speaker:
My Thoughts: I have been extremely troubled by the fact that both Mr. and Mrs. Ulrich Tanner died in 1700; a child was born in 1700 with no further notes; & Samuel died in 1697. It seems Michael & Hans Jacob (1771) were the only ones that survived. Could it be that is just how it is? Or did something else happen. I began a research to find out what this Palatine meant–it was noted that Michael Danner was among the German Palatines aboard the John Goodman Ship when they migrated to American in 1727. It seems possible to me that the Tanners were possibly among the massacred people of this area as it is described.

    • 🙂 Cool we are related. We need to compare what family history we have on the Danner line. I know for my father tracing his direct Danner line is important, and I have hit a brick wall now on how to go back any further. I am always looking for any new leads I can follow that might help find more family members in the Danner family line. XOXOX
