To do honor to a grand county is our privilege at
all times. But special honor goes to Adams County
in this year of 1950, when she celebrates her 150th
birthday. We proudly devote certain sections of
our book to a review of people and events that
have left their marks on this great county. Time
and space do not permit a more complete record.
May we say "Thanks for a line heritage" to those
sturdy pioneers who have laid the foundation for
good homes, churches, schools and industries.
We seniors finishing our high school days at the
mid-point of the twentieth century, aim to record
for our friends, our families and ourselves a record
of the 1949-50 school year of Gettysburg High
School. Wheii memories grow dim and school
friends scatter, we are permitted to visit in spirit
friends and places, through the medium of the
1950 Cannon-Aid, published at Gettysburg, Pa.

HIS YEAR Adams County celebrates the
a p i. 7 sesqui-centennial anniversary of its found-
'-4 ing as a separate county. Although settled
be 'fi ' in the early part of the eighteenth century, it
was not until 1800 that its residents were successful
in securing an act of the legislature establishing this
area as a separate county with its own officials, its own
courts, and its own county government.
Witli a population of 13,172 in 1800 the county has
grown in population to more than 45,000 in 1950. The
same period of time has seen the county advance toia
position of major importance in the commonwealth in
many Helds of activity. It is perhaps not too much of
an exaggeration to say that no other county is so out-
standing in so many different fields of endeavor. Es-
sentially an agricultural community, it has not only
excelled in the production of fruit and other agricultural
products but it is favorably known for its educational
institutions, its industries. and its scenery and points
of historical interest which make it an ideal tourist
and vacation resort attracting many thousands of vis-
itors each year.
Patriotically, the people in the county have responded
in every war in which our country has been engaged
by the enlistment of men and women in the armed serv-
ices and in civilian work connected with the war effort.
No appeal of the government whether it be for men,
money, materials, or assistance in morale-building pro-
grams has gone unanswered. In most instances the
response of the people of the county has far exceeded
the request. During every period of emergency the
people of the county have moved as a united group to
accomplish that which was necessary. Adams County
is justly proud of its patriotic record.
It has been said that the county was settled by all
the important racial elements which constituted the
colonial population of Pennsylvania. "This area was
indeed a melting pot of populationf, Herein lies the
secret of the growth and importance of the county and
herein is its greatest asset. Made up of people of many
races and creeds our ancestors learned to live and
work together harmoniously for the common good and
to respect the viewpoints of others. This is the heritage
which they have given us and because of it we have
been able to remain united, working for the good of all,
and accepting those views most likely to accomplish
In our sesqui-centennial prayer we humbly give
thanks to our Creator for the many blessings our
country has received and for permitting us to be a
part of a county so constituted. 'We pray that every-
thing we do will add to the glory of its history.

Herein state .
Teacher hire was an important matter in 1850 at a
summer-time meeting. A teacher for the female high
school was elected at a monthly salary of S22.50. For
the infant school a teacher was also elected, the salary
to be 312.00 a month.
HIGH STREET SCHOOL
Early in 1852 a two-room school was established
on High Street in a stone house owned by Mr. S.
Fahnestock. It was decided also that the schools should
be kept open regularly, including every Saturday morn-
ing. The teacher's salary was reduced to S22 a month.
Another decision was reached-school was to be opened
in the morning with Scripture reading and closed in
the afternoon with singing.
The year 1854 brought about changes. Tuition rates
were set up-seventy-five cents per month for each
scholar, unless he was a high school student. Rates
for them were 51.00. In September a committee of
three was appointed to separate the sexes in the pri-
mary schools. If the new plan worked satisfactorily,
the same procedure was to be followed in the other
school. The advisability of having four grades was
The 1854 annual report showed a decided improve-
ment in school attendance. There were 233 boys and
209 girls in school. The male teachers numbered three,
with an average monthly salary of S21.67. The female
teachers numbered six, with an average salary of
Attendance was a favorite topic in 1855. Any scholar
absent from school one week out of four, except for
sickness or a satisfactory reason, would lose his seat.
By 1856 the directors planned to build a two-story
school house with the two sexes in the same room.
With this thought in mind two lots on High Street
were purchased from Mr. Fahnestock for 5300.
The first big building program got under way in
1857. Messrs. George and Henry Chritzman were
awarded the contract to build the High Street School,
cost to be 35,363 Prior to 1857 practically every house
on High Street had served for school purposes.
In 1858 borough schools were operating for all the
youths of the town, including pupils whose parents
resided in the borough, adopted children, indented
apprentices, hired and bound servants.

ADAMS CENTINEL, February 22, 1803.
Thaddeus Stevens, the great statesman and Con-
gressional leader lived in Gettysburg from 1816 to
1842. Although he was born in Vermont in 1792 and
studied law at Dartmouth College, he practiced law in
Gettysburg and was very active in the anti-Masonic
movement locally and nationally. The name of his
native county, Caledonia, was given to the iron furnace
he founded on the road between Gettysburg and Charn-
"The Saviour of the Common Schools of Pennsyl-
vanian deserves the gratitude of every resident of the
Keystone State. WVhen Stevens made his classic speech
in opposition to the repeal of the Common School Law
of Pennsylvania in 1835, in the House of Representa-
tives, he said "Take lofty ground-look beyond the
narrow space which now circumscribes our vision-
beyond the passing Heeting point of time on which we
stand-and so cast our votes that the blessing of edu-
catio11 shall be conferred on every son of Pennsylvania
-shall be carried home to the poorest child of the
poorest inhabitant of the meanest hut of your moun-
tains, so that even he may be prepared to act well his
part in this land of freedom, and lay on earth a broad
and solid foundation for that enduring knowledge
which goes increasing through increasing eternity."
T HADDEU s STEVEN s
The year before, the eloquent Stevens had made a
memorable speech in defense of the Free Public School
Act of 1834. At the same time he was serving as a
member of Gettysburg's first school board.
Wlien a group of men sought to obtain a charter
for a new college, to be called Pennsylvania College
of Gettysburg, Thaddeus Stevens was a member of
that committee. When the future of the college was in
grave doubt, because of poor financial support, it was
Stevens who spoke for and assisted in getting an ap-
propriation of 318,000 from the Pennsylvania State
Thaddeus Stevens was one of the most ardent
advocates of the public school system in Pennsylvania.
His argument was strong, his sarcasm, biting, He
possessed an abundance of dry wit and his tongue cut
like a razor. During his lifetime, his followers Could
find no words strong enough to praise him, and his
enemies, especially in the South, no language bitter
enough to ridicule him. Although totally indifferent to
fame and high office, Thaddeus Stevens has left his
mark in Gettysburg and Adams Cou11ty. Stevens Hall
on the Gettysburg College Campus, is named in his
LUTHERAN THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
In 1826 laws were approved and at the same time
agents were appointed to collect contributions in the
United States and Europe for the erection of the Sem-
inary of the General Synod of the Evangelical Lu-
theran Church in America.
Choosing the place to build the Seminary was rather
difficult-Hagerstown, Carlisle, Frederick and York all
being considered along with Gettysburg. Weighiiig
carefully all the advantages offered, the committee de-
cided upon Gettysburg by unanimous vote.
Dr. S. S. Schmucker, the first professor of the Sem-
inary, was inaugurated as President on September 5,
1826, and among the ten subjects he taught were Greek,
Hebrew, and Biblical interpretation.
The first classes of the Seminary were held in the
Adams County Academy building, at the southeast
corner of Washingtoii and High Streets, where the
Reuning families now reside. The Seminary began
with S1,700, one professor, eight students and a small
In two years the students increased from eight to
twenty-three. A second professor was needed and hence

The elephant is not only the largest and wisest animal in the world, but from a peculiar
manner in which it takes its food and drink of every kind with its trunk, is acknowledged
to be the greatest natural curiosity ever offered to the public. She will lie down and get up
at command, she will draw the cork from a bottle and with her trunk, will manage it in
such a manner as to drink its contents. She is eleven years old and measures upward to
fifteen feet from trunk to tail, ICI1 feet around the body, and eight feet high.

MEMBERS OF THE CLAss or 1950:
A spirit of optimism is needed to urge you on-
ward and upward. It gives you hope for the future,
without which you despair and despairing, give up.
Hence, I wish for each of you a generous quantity
of the spirit of optimism.
But be not blinded by your spirit of optimism,
for dangers threaten not only the foundation of our
Country, but also of civilization. These dangers
can be diminished in proportion as you, as indi-
viduals, are willing to do the right thing by your-
self, by your fellowmen, and by your Creator.
Space does not permit me to enumerate here the
ideals and attitudes you should adopt to guide you
on life's journey. Neither is it necessary that I
should do so, for I am satisfied that you already
know them. Wlietlier you practice them in your
daily living is entirely in your hands. My hope is
that you may be guided by what is decent and

You are completing your high school Work this
year at a time when the nation's labor supply
equals the demand. This will mean that employ-

themselves and are willing to do the job.
Our philosophy will have to change from what
belongs to me to what do I owe?
Our nation does not owe us a living, rather, it
owes us the privilege of earning a living for our-
selves. VV hen each individual is willing to keep
himself, many of our nation's problems will be

Famous Beyond the County's Borders
ARIOUS countians made their influence fe-lt
vq,,,f,fw,fe.l far beyond our southern Pennsylvania
county. Even before there was a county
,QQ known as Adams, a woman's name, synony-
mous with courage and fairness, was proudly
mentioned by early settlers. Likewise, today we hail
countians whose contributions are recognized far be-
yond the borders of the county and state. Space per-
mits us to recognize but five of them.
The name of McPherso11 has long been identified
with the progressive growth of this county. The men-
folk of the McPherson clan. wise and faithful public
servants, have furthered the interests of the county and
countians on numerous occasions.
An illustrious son of this well-known family was
Honorable Edward McPherson C1830-18955, who
served his country, his state and his county, both in
government and journalism. In the field of government
he served as deputy commissioner of Internal Revenue,
Clerk of the National House of Representatives, and
Chief of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. A
mainstay in the Republican party, he served as editor
of the Philadelphia. Press. Other editorial projects in-
cluded the Handboole of Politics and the New York
Although his duties frequently called him to New
York, Philadelphia and Washington, Mr. McPherson
came back as often as possible to his family and friends
in Gettysburg, where he found relaxation from an
arduous political life.
Mary Iemison, born on the Atlantic Ocean in 1742,
resided with her parents, two brothers and one sister
at the head of Marsh Creek, in what is now known as
Buchanan Valley, then a part of York County. When
Mary was twelve, she was carried away from her
home by the Indians who had massacred members of
During her second year of captivity, Mary, now
known as Deckewamis, since her adoption by the
Indians. was married to a Delaware Indian, Sheninjee
by name. In l759, Mary named her first-born child
Thomas Jemison, i11 memory of her father. Her hus-
band's death a few years later caused her deep sorrow.
At the close of the French and Indian War, Mary
could have returned to her white relatives and friends,
since the victorious English were seeking to make this
return possible. However, Mary refused the offer,
claiming to prefer to live with the Indians who had
shown her so much kindness and because she felt she
could bring about a better understanding between the
white race and the red by remaining with them.
When Mary was twenty years of age, she married
the fifty-five-year-old Seneca warrior, Hiokatoo. With
him she lived happily for forty-eight years. Four
daughters and two sons resulted from this marriage.
Longevity seemed to mark this unusual marriage, Mary
dying at the age of ninety-one and Hiokatoo at the age
of one hundred three.
A lovely statue has been erected to Mary Jemison's
memory at St. Ignatius Church in Buchanan Valley
by proud countians. Valley folks are happy to recall
the sturdy pioneer girl, loved and respected by both
white and red people.
A similar statue has been erected to Mary Iemison at
Letchworth State Park in the Iroquois Country of
New York State in commemoration of her services i11
bringing about a mutual understanding between the
ELSIE SINGMASTER LEWARS
One of the grand ladies now living in Gettysburg is
Elsie Singmaster Lewars. Mrs. Lewars has been writ-
ing novels a11d short stories for so many years right
here in Gettysburg, that we unfailingly place her in
the select group of well-known people. Countians are
not too much concerned when "Miss Elsie" delves into
our country's past history or lingers a while with the
Pennsylvania Germans, for they know that the result
will be a combination of good judgment, excellent
English and interesting narrative.
It is not unusual for Mrs. Lewars to use county
events, county scenes and county people in her writ-
ings. This she does with sympathy and understanding.
The same fine spirit that puts such thoughts into print
prompts her to participate unselfishly in such activities
as the Lutheran Church, the Red Cross and the Adams
David VVills was born in the year 1831, in Menallen
township, a son of James Wills. David, a very aggres-
sive young man, had his residence in a substantial,
comfortable home on the southeast corner of the square
of Gettysburg in 1863. This home was destined to be-
come historically famous.
It was to this house that President Abraham Lincoln
came on November 18, 1863, by invitation of Mr.
Wills. Today everyone knows that in one of Mr. Wills'
bedrooms, finishing touches were put on a speech that
was destined to be one of the masterpieces of its type
in the English language.
In addition to playing host to the president of the
United States, Mr. Wills was a public-spirited man of
great distinction. He was intensely interested in the
establishment of a Soldiers' National Cemetery at
Gettysburg, after he had done valiant civilian service
in the trying days of July, 1863. After securing the
help of Governor Curtin, he saw fit to further his ideas
and secured others to help him put them into execu-
tion. Moreover, it was l',ludge" Wills who personally
invited Edward Everett, the acclaimed orator of the
day, and Abraham Lincoln, the President of the
United States, to speak at dedication exercises for the
A lawyer by profession, David W'i1ls served his town
as burgess and his county as the first county super-
intendent of schools. In the world of Finance, he served
as a director of the Bank of Gettysburg.
CHARLES MORRIS YOUNG
Charles Morris Young, the famous landscape and
portrait painter, was born in Adams County, not far
from Gettysburg. Although Mr. Young is now resid-
ing in Radnor, Pa., he spent much time in Gettysburg
fifty or so years ago. Despite the fact that for art's
sake he was called to Philadelphia or to Paris per-
haps, he came back frequently to Gettysburg for a
sojourn of several months and set to work in a rented
During these occasional visits, he put his brushes to
work to portray on canvas well-known friends and
familiar scenes. Under such circumstances he made the
portrait of Honorable Edward McPherson, a copy of
which appears on these pages.
Fifty years ago Adams countians hailed the genius of
Charles Morris Young and today local residents con-
tinue to speak with pride of Mr. Young, whose paint-
ings hang in many of the famed galleries of the world.
Back in the good old days of Adams
County our grandparents could readily
recollect Gettysburg's first accom-
plished aviator. Now, he was not a
common aviator of the airplane of to-
day, but of the first gas-filled balloon.
It is related that this ambitious soul
had paid fifty dollars to the man who
was exhibiting this bit of aircraft for
the privilege of standing in the basket
of the balloon. After pondering over the
situation the dissatisfied customer be-
came angered at the fact that he was
only allowed to stand in it. Then, act-
ing on an impulse, he cut the cables
which held the balloon stationary on
the ground. Up, up, he went until he
became a speck in the never-ending
sky. Much to the amusement and
amazement of the county, he and the
balloon were discovered hours later in
the neighboring county of York.

OUR CLASS ADVISERS
When we turn back the pages of memory's book, we shall review from time to
time the chapter in which are recorded the events of our high school days. School
friends and teachers will undoubtedly provide the personal element that makes such
Two of the leading hgures in this unwritten record of real people will be Miss
Mundis and Mr. Sheads. Wfe shall be reminded that Dame Fortune smiled upon us,
when she gave to us two such grand persons to bear with us in all our under-
takings, From inexperienced First year students to experienced seniors having the
graduation goal in sight, we knew where to go. Both of them were ready to advise
us, work with us, and best of all encourage us, when our faint hearts were inclined
Many of the lessons learned from books will grow dim or vanish completely from
our book of memories, but the inspiring example of Miss Mundis and Mr. Sheads
will ever remain clear and true, and suggest to us the numerous ways that we can
be helpful to others.

The Dobbin House on Steinwehr Avenue. familiarly
known as the "Old Stone House," is the oldest house
in Gettysburg. Built in 1776 by Reverend Alexander
Dobbin, it has been converted into an excellent museum
with exhibits dating from colonial days as well as
some of the present time.
Having lived on a farm close to Gettysburg for
three years, the thirty-year-old Scotch-Irish preacher
of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church had
the large stone house built on the outskirts of the little
town. From 1776 to 18101 he maintained one of the first
classical schools and theological seminaries west of the
Susquehanna River and from the school went forth a
number of youths to Dickinson College at Carlisle for
Among the classics that the Reverend Dobbin taught
were Latin, Greek and Theology. Inasmuch as Mr.
Dobbin forsook teaching for preaching. others operated
the school for a period of twenty or so years. In addi-
tion to housing a school, the house once served as a
tavern, a church and later as a hospital during the
battle days in 1863.
There are twelve large rooms and a spring room in
the old house. The wood used is mainly oak. There are
chairs, boards, mantels, oaken partitions, twenty-inch
walls, and doors on hinges handmade by the black-
smith. The rafters are made of hewn logs. Some of the
joists beneath the first floor are still covered with bark.
There are unsealed ceilings and a stairway with an
old-fashioned banister. The house boasts of seven tire-
All this is in an excellent state of preservation, with
a spring of sparkling water flowing through the flag-
stone floor of the kitchen.

PENNSYLVANIA COLLEGE OF GETTYSBURG
Privately owned schools in Gettysburg were not un-
common in the early 1S00's. Educators had various ob-
jectives in their training programs. But no individual
was more zealous than Samuel S. Schmucker, the first
professor of the Lutheran Theological Seminary. De-
scribed as the "best educated man i11 the Lutheran
Church of Americaf' he had real genius for leader-
ship and organization.
Because of his untiring efforts, Dr. Schmucker is
recognized as the founder of "Pennsylvania College of
Gettysburg." This college, established April 7, 1832, by
law, was fostered by the German Lutheran element of
Pennsylvania. Consequently the first term opened on
November 7 of the sa1ne year with sixty-three students.
It was not until 1834 that Dr. Charles Phillip Krauth
took office as the iirst president of the new institution
of learning. Land for the college grounds was pur-
chased in 1835 from Thaddeus Stevens. In October.
1837, on these grounds was erected the first college
building, "Pennsylvania Hall," more commonly referred
to as "Old Dorm."
Throughout the years this college, Gettysburg Col-
lege since 1921, has contributed generously to the cul-
tural life of the town and county. Dr. Henry VV. A.
Hanson, the president, upholds the tradition of the
early leaders-to educate young folks for Christian
AARON SHEELY'S SCHOOL
Mr. Aaron Sheely, superintendent of the common
schools of Adams County for a period of about thirty
years, had his place of residence and school rooms on
the southeast corner of Wasliiiigton and VVest Middle
Streets. The primary purpose of the school was to
train young men and women for teaching in the schools
of the county.
It is not surprising to note that Mr. Sheely generally
had from forty-tive to sixty in his classes, for in those
days many young folks would teach a year or so in the
rural schools before entering business or one of the
Enrollment was highest at the so-called spring term,
directly after the closing of the rural schools in March
or April. One could attend for as many months as he
desired and he could choose the subjects that would
best fit his needs. Among the subjects from which he
could choose were English, spelling, algebra, and
The qualifications for teaching were not too exacting.
The would-be teacher had to be eighteen years of age
and his average for the final public school examination
had to be seventy-five per cent or over. The next step
was to take an examination at the time and place des-
ignated by Mr. Sheely. If he passed the examination,
he received a teaching certificate from the superintend-
ent. If he failed the examination he had to repeat the
course and submit to an examination a second time.
In Mr. Sheely's school, well-known sixty or more
years ago, students were rated with the numbers-one,
two, and three. A number one pupil was a good scholar,
a number two pupil an average scholar and a number
three pupil was a poor scholar.

Many very tall stories were told about the county concerning the famous Civil VVar. Related
in the following paragraph is a favorite among the countians.
A Confederate sharpshooter had a very enviable position among the jagged rocks of Devi1's
Den, and a Union sharpshooter had the same at Little Round Top.
Expertly shooting away at each other for a few hours the two marksmen began wondering
why neither of them was wounded or killed. Proceeding once again to fire away they soon be-
came tired of the monotonous pastime.
Raising a quaking white Hag of truce, the one sharpshooter started making hislway to the
other's position. Likewise the other followed suit. Stumbling straight to the mid-point of cross-
nre, to their complete surprise they discovered a mass of bullets wedged solidly together at

If at any time there is a question of the great pitchers
in the realm of baseball, one is sure to hear men-
tioned the name of Eddie Plank, born a few miles from
Gettysburg. This southpaw, who pitched for the Get-
tysburg College nine about fifty years ago, was hired
by Connie Mack, in 1901, to be one of the Philadel-
phia Athletics' pitchers.
During eight seasons he won more than twenty games
a season-a Hue record for one who pitched for the
American League throughout sixteen seasons. The rec-
ords show that he tallied 283 victories for the Ath-
letics while playing for his good friend Connie Mack.
Eddie played with six of Connie's championship
teams, but appeared in only four World Series' classics.
The athlete closed his professional ball playing days
as a pitcher for the St. Louis Terriers. His victories

Even before the borough of Gettysburg and the

The name of McClellan has been identified with this
historic inn for the longest period of time. It was in
1809 that William McClellan purchased from the ad-
miuistrators of the estate of James Scott, the first
postmaster of Gettysburg, 'fcommodious houses chiefly
of brick, with extensive stabling and sheds." For a
period of more than seventy-five years this establish-
ment was to be known as the McClellan House.
It is apparent that Mr. William McClellan was an
innkeeper by profession, since he formerly had been
the landlord of the Black Horse Tavern, at Marsh
A young attorney, Thaddeus Stevens, came to the
"Gettysburg Hotel" in 1816 and rented rooms from
Mr. Frederick Keefer and later from Mr. Michael
Troxell. These gentlemen probably leased the hotel
from members of the McClellan family.
Most picturesque of the McClellan clan was "Colo-
nel" John McClellan, whose interests were so varied
as to include town welfare, balloon ascensions and
horses. Town policies were shaped at the McClellan
House when "Colonel" john's friends-Judge Wills,
Honorable David McConaughy, Doctors Robert and
Charles Horner-would assemble outside on balmy
summer evenings or around the open fire on winter
Other familiar names associated with the manage-
ment of the hotel are Diller and Zinn. Kinfolk of these
persons continue to reside in Gettysburg.
Many notables have signed their names on the guest
register, such as Daniel 1rVebster, Thomas Edison,
Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone.
Today we have the HOTEL GETTYSBURG, so
called for more than Fifty years. Since 1914 members
of the Scharf family have been managing this modern
hostelry, which still serves the traveling public and
furnishes headquarters for important occasions.

WEE WILLIE SHERDEL
"Wee Willie" Sherdel, whose place of birth is Mid-
way, Adams County, found baseball pitching and
catching in McSherrystown, Hanover and Gettysburg
the answer to what he enjoyed doing most back in 1914
On his way up to the big leagues he played with
Milwaukee, of the American Association, in 1916 and
1917. For thirteen years, starting in 1919, he played
with the St. Louis Cardinals, helping that team to
win a pennant in 1926.
The year 1925, when he led the national .league in
percentage, was Sherdel's best year. In relating a few
of his past experiences, the countian avers that "Babe"
Ruth was the greatest left-hand hitter to face him. On
the other hand, it is said that the "Bambino" hated
Sherdel's slow ball.
After two years with the Boston Braves, Sherdel
called a halt to professional ball playing and came back
to McSherrystown to engage in business.
GETTYSBURG FIRE DEPARTMENT
In the year 1808 residents of Gettysburg were alert
to the need of protecting their properties from the
destructive forces of fire. The equipment was crude-
buckets, axes and hooks. The success of the enterprise
must have been dependent upon the numbers and in-
dustry of the members of the fire-fighting organization.
In 1822 the borough fathers ordered that a new fire
house be built. The weatherboard structure, painted
black and white, was twenty-eight feet long, eight
feet wide and twelve feet high. The new home for fire
apparatus, according to records, stood next to Widoxxf
Chamberlain's lot. The site must have been on York
Street, close to Evans' store.
The first engine, named "Guard', was purchased in
July, 1830. Perhaps the original structure did not meet
the needs of the newly purchased piece of equipment,
for the engine house was sold this same year for 512.

STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD
A curious epitaph can be found i11 Round Hill cemetery located in Reading township, near
Hampton, which reads as follows:
In Memory of Samuel Hodge.
Birth unknown, Died March 17, 1783.
"The strongest man that ever lived
At last did quietly yeild up his
This fate is sure to all, to you
Come then prepare for death before you
The circumstance back of the above epitaph is given as follows :-Previous to the Revolutionary
War there lived a strong man in Cumberland County who learning of the great strength of
Hodge, decided to challenge him to a fistic encounter.
With this purpose in view he arrived at Hodge's home and inquired of Mrs. Hodge where he
might find her husband. He was directed to a nearby place where he found Mr. Hodge busy mak-
ing cider. He thereupon told Mr. Hodge of his desire to engage in a fistic combat. He was in-
formed by Mr. Hodge that it was a foolish proposition but to satisfy him he would fight. Mr.
Hodge then proposed that they take a drink of cider before the encounter. Mr. Hodge then
picked up a huge barrel of cider and drank from the bung hole, after which he handed the barrel
to his opponent, who after seeing this exhibition of strength decided not to engage in any fighting.

has acquired twenty-five points, she receives a minor G 5 fifty points, a class numeral, and one hun-
dred points, a major G.
This system, in effect during the 1948-49 school year, was revised this year.

THOMAS HESS-Show-offs and girls who wear
colored stockings displease this lad who goes for
sports, chili con carne, and guns. Tom says "I don't
know," but hopes to travel through the states.
EILEEN KANE-This lass turns away from reck-
less drivers and gossipy persons. "Good 'nough" re-
plies "Link" who has a love for dramatics, red hair,
and her trip to Indiana University.
LINN KEPNER-"Kep" plans his future in the
Army Air Force. His likes range from orchestra music
to girls, while he dislikes stuck-up people. He often
declares "Prove it!"
MARLIN KESSEL-A future college grad, "Kess"
is ecstatic over hunting, music, and "good grub," while
he thinks gossipers are even worse than know-it-all
girls. He hopelessly utters "Oh no!"
BETTY KETTERMAN-"Oh, my word!" re-
marks "Ket" over conceited people and heels with
socks. She plans a secretarial future. Her senior year,
sports, and hamburgers thrill her.
BETTY KIME-Movies, "shoe-strings," and grilled
cheese fascinate this future secretary who's always
laughing. "Oh, my cow," moans "Kimie" over two-
CHARLES KITZMILLER-Another future serv-
ice man, "Kitz" will take a good hard game of foot-
ball any day, but can't stand people who feel they are
too good for other folks. And, he asks, "How about
DOROTHY KLINEFELTER- Griping people
and users of big words don't rate with "Dotty." This
future secretary delights in hamburgers, roller skating,
and Baby Ruths-"Oh, my gosh!"
ROBERT KRICK-"Mole" looks forward to col-
lege or the service. "Gee 'zow" may show his like for
ice cream, basketball, and swimming or his dislike
for stuck-up people and "ole" man winter.
LEO KUHN-"Pete" is recognized by his red
hair. His future is in the U. S. Air Force. "How about
that !" He thinks sports, cars, and good eats are super.
WAYNE KUMP-A business man! "I can't help
it," emphasizes "Kumpie," "I don't like girls who
smoke." He "sure" does like "purty" girls and new cars.
WILLIAM KUMP-His nickname is 'fBill." Eng-
lish in general doesn't agree with a very ambitious
future fruit farmer who, by the way, is nuts about
EDWINA LAWVER-Volleyball, and cocoanut
devil's food cake plus seven minute frosting have a
special place with "Eddie" who announces "Oh, buck-
ets!" at girls who swear. Future is undecided.
ALFRED LEVAN-"Hi, Mac," greets "Allie,"
whose future is going to be in plumbing. This "rhythm
mastern has a grudge against girls and school. Sleep-
ing, eating, and dance jobs are his specialty.
ARLENE LEWIS-Sometimes called "Louie,"
our dramatist loves steak and mashed potatoes, singing,
and Fords. "It ain't easy," for this smiling lass to be
around hillbilly music and boastful insincere people.
BARBARA LITTLE-"You know," says "Skip"
who "sure" likes fried chicken, swimming, sports and
her freshman year. She has a home life on her mind
with no room for snobbish people.
SIDNEY LOCK-College beckons Sidney, who de-
tests chemistry tests but thrills over driving, sports,
and good jokes. "How about that P" questions this
JACQUELINE LONG-"Jackie" simply can't
stand unsystematic people, but is crazy about sports,
cherry cokes, and journalism. The crystal ball sees
our editor of the Maroon and White in governmental
work. "That's for sure l"
JEWELLE LOWE-"Judy" cold shoulders griping
people and chocolate ice cream, but thinks kittens and
cocoanut cream pie are scrumptious. She asks "No
kiddin'?" The stars foretell another civil service "gal."
JUNE MCDANNELL-Dancing and spaghetti ap-
peal to this miss who dislikes discourteous boys. "For
Pete's sake!" says June who has a dress shop or sec-
retarial work on her agenda.
ROSE McINTYRE-Attending York Junior Col-
lege is the future for "Mac" who is disgusted with
speeches and gossipers. She's mighty pleased over
V.M.'s and bananas. "There, I've said it again!"
JANET MCKENNEY-This busy miss is going to
stage a college career. "Jan" says, "Oh, for heaven's
sake !" about chemistry experiments. She enjoys swim-
ming, clothes, and ice cream.

A COUNTY IS BORN
WT HE year .1800 acquired distinction not only
rg V1 because it ushered Ill a new century, but
Q also because it ushered in a new county in
Q the state of Pennsylvania. The county,
' named Adams after the President of the
United States, was at one time the western part of
York County. It was on January 22, 1800, that official
recognition was given to this struggling county that
was in a few years to be known as the "poor buck-
wheat county," but which in the twentieth century was
to gain international renown as a fruit growing and
fruit rocessin center.
Governor Thomas McKean
pointed three commissioners
on October 2, 1800, ap-
to run and mark the
dividing line between the counties.

THE ADAMS CENTINEL
The lirst issue of "The Adams Centineln was pub-
lished on Wedilesday, November 19, 1800, by Robert
Harper. Sr., whose slogan was "Truth, Our Guide-
'lhe Public Good, Our Aim." At one time the editor
stated "that the establishment of a printing press in
the county is a convenience as well as a benef1t." At
another time Mr. Harper declared l'The Centinel is
published upon fair and liberal principles-it is not
the friend of Royalty, Aristocracy or Jacobinism-a
pure Republican spirit will ever preside over its pages."

LOW DUTCH GRAVEYARD
During the years from 1765 to 1775 colonies of
Dutch from New York alld New Jersey emigrated to
Conewago. About two miles east of Hunterstown is
the a11cient burial place of these pioneers, The name
"Old Low Dutch Graveyard" l1as been given to their'
final resting place. Today the "Low Dutch Roadn be-
tween the York and Baltimore Pikes marks the region
of their settlement.
Located .near the geographical center of Adams

After the first few issues, publication of the paper
was suspended for three weeks, but apparently public
patronage improved sufficiently to assure Mr. Harper
of the support he expected. Later "The Centinel" com-
bined with "The Star" and now a century and a half
later countians are familiar with the weekly "Star and
Tradition declares that the first "Centinels" were
printed on an old Ramage press, which now has a place
of honor in the Franklin Institute, at Philadelphia.
Thus our county has had a newspaper continuously
since the year of its creation.

HE WASN'T A PEACEABLE MAN
A committee of Correspondence of the Two Taverns Anti-slavery meeting called a county
meeting to assemble in the court house of Gettysburg, on December 3, 1836.
One o'clock Saturday of this date found the ugly old court house in the Square familiarly
known as the Diamond, the scene of a vast crowd. The meeting was called to order by the
A motion was made for the formation of an Anti-slavery Society for Political Work. Then
the fireworks began! A young lawyer presented an argument that it was inexpedient and im-
proper to petition Congress to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia and the United States
territories. Now, if a peaceful man had been in the chair perhaps the substitution would have
been declared out of order. But, it was held by a man with a fiery temper. The discussion waxed
fast and furious. The abolitionists became hoarse with rage. Boos and jeers were heard and
oaths, and whistles arose from the crowd.
Several anti-slavery leaders were wearing high silk hats. These hats were too conspicuous a
target not to attract the attention of some of the members of the tumultuous throng. The eggs
began to fly! One partial wag had secured the carcass of a very defunct feline, and had hurled
it at a stalwart abolitionist's hat. His aim was true, and the cat was kneaded together on the
floor under the feet of the struggling crowd. This ended the meeting at the court house on
December 3, 1836.
Later that day a few scholarly men of the town finished the organization work in a hotel

OUR HEARTS WERE YOUNG AND GAY
Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimbrough are determined to pursue courses in France in
order to further their youthful ambitions. Cornelia aspires to be a celebrated actress, while Emily
desires to be a famous dancer.
On board ship Dick and Leo, medical students, become close friends of Cornelia and Emily.
These young men help to make the crossing a more thrilling one than might have been experienced,
had the girls gone the conventional way with Mr. and Mrs. Otis Skinner.
En route to Europe. the two happy-go-lucky girls learn that each has been given a money belt to
wear. These purses cause much excitement at un expected moments.
Enjoyable comedy is provided by Emily's hitting a man overboard with a deckchair. Add to that
a surprise attack of measles on board ship, a wat er heater explosion in a Parisian hotel, and clothes
of the 1920 period.
The fall play, presented by the Mask and Wig, will be remembered as one filled with delightful

UP TO YOUR EARS
lt's the day before the marriage of Kay Ford to Joe Patterson, a respectable but stuffy young
man. Helen, Kay's mother, has all arrangements made for the wedding and reception by the time
Joe and his brother Don, who is to be best man, arrive for the wedding.
Sixteen-year-old Sally, a l'bug" on psychology, knows that Joe is Wrong for Kay. Sally success-
fully psychoanalyzes Gladys Mullen, the comical hired girl, and sets out to break up Kay's wedding.
Her goal is to leave an opening for Charley Bak er, Kay's high school boy friend. Aided by beauti-
ful, blonde Vickie Blake, Don and Charley, Sally thoroughly disrupts the entire household.
Sally places Joe in a situation where he has to reveal his true colors. Finally Kay has to admit
that she's made a mistake in refusing to marry Charley. In reality Charley is a most charming and
amusing young man. Although Sally's application of psychology is slightly confusing, everything
works out satisfactorily.
The spring play, presented by the senior class, was a most enjoyable comedy with a side-split-

"Is that so?" questions "Ted" who knows that marsh-
mallow walnut sundaes and Al Jolson are his favorites.
A future college man who runs from cold weather and
JOYCE MARTIN-Swearing and conceited boys
stand no chance with this gal who adores soft music,
ice cream, and basketball. "You don't know, do you?"
laughs this "maybe" future career girl.
HAROLD MELLAS-Just call him f'Haddy."
Can't stand silly girls says this class prankster who
likes a certain girl! although he has an undecided fu-
ture, this guy manages, "What do you say ?"
CAROLINE MILLER-"Well, holy mud!" ejacu-
lates this sports and majorette fan. Letterkenny or a
phone operator's position summons "Carol" who has
a mighty low opinion of "smart" kids, plus gripers.
DAVID MILLER-"Dave's" pet peeves are drunk-
ards. This sandy-haired senior has the great ambition
to be an electrician or a mechanic. "Ye gadsf' yells
this fellow who likes to drive cars and watch sports
HAROLD MILLER- Harold can't wait to go
hunting and fishing. "VVell I guessl' answers this fel-
low who ignores stuck-up girls and is just wild about

mas !" A chicken dinner plus frosts are always welcome
to this farmer to be.

gripes about talking in the movies. "VVell I'll be l" says
he who thinks ham, cake, and sports are swell.
PAULINE MILLHIMES-Pork chops, hockey,
and potato chips seem heavenly to cheerleader "Polly."
Office work is in store. Dreary days and plaicls vs.
stripes cause her to say, "Heaven's sake!"
CHARLES MORITZ-To be a farmer is this lover
of wildlife, hunting and fishing's main ambition.
"Charley" simply doesn't go in for formal classes.
ROBERT MOSER-"Just call me 'Bob'l" utters
this disliker of poor school spirit and boys that won't
dance. "Just check that!" announces another Doris
Day fan, who includes dramatics and swimming on his
SANDRA MUMPER-T his future Florence
Nightingale says speeches and socks with spikes are
out. "Holy cow l" states "Sandy," who is always accom-
panied by "Roxy," Likes movies!
DOROTHY MUSSELMAN-Vaughn Monroe,
and roller skating are Dottie's specialties. Beauty cul-
ture calls this opponent of girls who smoke and reck-
less drivers. Could live on milkshakes and cokes.
EVELYN MUSSELMAN-"Evie's" mouth waters
over Nick's shoestrings, Woodlawn, and a certain '37
Ford. This future telephone operator hates those rushed
GEORGE MUSSELMAN-"And how l" exclaims
this future tiller of the soil, who gets disgusted over
long algebra assignments when he wants to go away.
Prefers Ag. class, football, hunting, and "some" girls.
MARIAN MUSSELMAN-Has an undecided
future but she still can manage to say "You're O.K."
Dislikes that name Mariang so she tags herself "Mim."
Tabu perfume, gym class, and hamburgs are top with
LLOYD MYERS- This baseball enthusiast also
insists on being called "George," He hates to fall back
in chemistry when desirous of attending a football
game. Will he enroll at West Chester State?
MARTIN MYERS-l'W ho cares?" demands
"Marty," another sports hero. Accepts ice cream and
sports any time. "Look out, cowboy driversll' warns
this lad who has not yet foreseen his future.
ROXANNA PALMER-Sports, especially basket-
ball, "Sandy" and swimming rate 10017 with "Roxy."
"Oh, definitely," a nurse! Shudders at blue and green
together and chem. check-ups.
GAILYA PEPPLE-Combination of blue-green
and conceited people sink to the bottom of this dress-
shop owner to be's list. Smiles at Home Ec., another
friendly smile for chocolate cake. "Misery 1"
SALLY POPPAY-Sally is her second name. Gos-
sipers and prejudiced people make this gal disgusted.
Admires "Sandy," semi-classical music, and Wood-
lawn. Maybe another vision in white.
JOHN RAFFENSPERGER, JR.-"Curses, ten
thousand curses l" mutters "Ralf" over chemistry equa-
tions and algebra in general. Has great hopes of being
a singer. Cares oodles for hamburgers and dramatics.
RICHARD REAVER-Doesnlt care for snippy un-
derclassmen or grapefruit. Joins the ranks of future

ROBERT SACHS-"Bobby," our sports star, is
partial to ambitious workers, sports, and friendly, easy-
talking people. This fellow, who often remarks, "Boy,
I mea11 !" has a distaste for low drinking fountains.
CLAIR SANDERS-"S t a yin g s i n g l e !" says
"Moose." Our representative at tl1e Strand thinks veg-
etable soup and S1nitty's store are OK. Clair is tagged
by the expression f'Wl1at 'cha say?" '
BARBARA ANN SAUNDERS-"Gee whiz,"
says f'Babs," a gal destined to join the Waves. This
enthusiast of dancing, parties, and shrimp, has no room
for conceited people.
BETTY SEIBERT-"Did you now?" asks our
co-editor of the Cannon-Aid, who is nuts about music,
food, clothes, and holidays. Noisy boys and conceited
"kids" have no room in Betty's heart.
CHARLES SHEALER-We know him as "Skip,"
a boy who cares little for P.D. checks and homework.
"Anchors Aweigl1" is the future theme song of this
lover of swimming, ice skating and "moo-laf,
WARD SHIELDS-Ward is another classmate
with a hazy future. He thoroughly enjoys llljlllllllg,
fishing, and Ag. class. When surprised at something,
VVard is heard saying "great balls of fire."
CLAIR SHINDLEDECKER-This boy says he
has an undecided road ahead. "Jesse" agrees with eat-

MARY LOUISE SHRIVER-Reckless drivers
and girls smoking have 110 class with this lass. "Oh,
j1.l1JC1'ySlu remarks this future beautician, who likes
dancing, sports, and convertibles.
WILMER SHRIVER-"Undecided" says
t'Poo11ey," another shunner of smart underclassmen,
and grapefruit. Voted one of '50's cowboys, this fellow
admires kind people, sports, and ice cream. He greets
you with a friendly "Hi !"
ANNA SHRYOCK-This artist has a liking for
dancing, good music. and memories of her senior year,
but cowboys and discourtesy in assemblies have no
room in her book. "Ann's" future plans are undecided.
ANNABELLE SITES-"Holy cats !" remarks this
bcautician to be. You'll find Annabelle frowning over
P.D. quizzes and snobbish people, but smiling at the
mention of dancing and French fries.
JOHN SITES-Large assignments and dark,
gloomy days are at the bottom of his li'st. "Bill" will
certainly miss G.H.S. and the wonderful "kids" after
graduation. "How about that?" states this ardent
hunter and Sportsman.
THOMAS SITES-College life lies ahead of our
fan of hunting, fishing, hamburgers and dill pickles.
Identified by the expression t'Holy cow!" Tom shows
no liking for poor sports, and homework.
RALPH SITLER, JR.-Definitely boys who re-
fuse to dance and girls with cold hands don't rate with
"Skip," another future college graduate. Music and a
certain blue-eyed gal are tops with this boy, who's noted
for "You're boss !"
DOLORES SMITH-"Dorty" has many thoughts
of attending Temple University to study medicine.
Music, unusual dishes, and people interest this gal,
who is identified by the expression "Holy buckets!"
Dolores dislikes that "jam-up" at the music room.
EDNA SMITH-Secretarial work lies ahead of
this disliker of conceited and loud people. "That's a
cinch,'l remarks Edna who likes dancing, sports, a
certain boy and travel.
ANNA SNIDER-Eating, drum majoretting, and
baseball head the list of this future secretary, while
being taken for granted and anklets worn with heels
gripe her. "Gee wl1i'z!!" there's "Annie,"
ROBERT SORENSON-Dancing, hitch-hiking
and electrical work please this boy from Camden, N. J.,
while loud, sudden noises dissatisfy him. "Bob" plans
to study electrical engineering at college.
CARROLL SPENCE-"Spark" has decided to set
tl1e world 011 tire by becoming a farmer. This lover of
sports, grub, and hunting thinks little of the school
grind a11d the name Harry. "Spark" blurts, "You
RALPH SPENCE-"Lefty," who hopes to get an
office job, clowns cold winter months and doing home-
work. "You don't know, do you?" remarks this fan
of sports, hunting, ice cream, and vacations.
CATHERINE STERNER-"My heavens!" tags
this future secretary, who likes a '49 graduate, fried
chicken, and milk shakes. "Cathy" simply can't stand
cowboys, homework and speed tests.
PATRICIA STEVENS-Identified by "Golly gee
whiz!" this blue-eyed lass plans to enter Gettysburg
College to become a medical secretary. "Pat" shudders
at undecided and snobbish people, but goes for cook-
ing, hunting, and swimming.
JOAN STOCK-delights in ice skating, swimming,
and eating Hershey almond bars. "Aw!" shrieks our
clark-haired comedian who wishes to devote her future
to airline secretarial work. Screeching fingernails on
blackboards are "Joanie's" horror.
BETTY STOTLER-is destined to be a secretary.
"Stot" turns her nose up at cliques and gossipy people.
"Holy cow!" but Betty enjoys roller skating, movies,
mystery books, and roast chicken.
MILDRED STOVER-has no definite plans about
the future, but as we peer into the looking-glass we
see happy thoughts concerning a certain '46 "Chevie."
"Smokey" avoids show-offs, "It's best you do!"
EVELYN STULTZ-is easily displeased at the
prospect of making public speeches. Good heavens!"
says this future angel in white. Among "Evie's"
favorites shine cooking, movies, and radio programs.
MARY JOANNE TAWNEY-is gifted with the
skill of the artist brush but has not yet sketched her
future. "Oh no!" comes from "Mary Jo" concerning
broken promises and girls who smoke. There's noth-
ing like a certain band member.
DOROTHY TAYLOR-Denver, Colo., beckons
to our prospective secretary. "Dot" shuns moody and
conceited people as well as the thought of homework.
Dancing, basketball, fried chicken and Mercury cars
hold top priority.
CAROLYN THOMAS-dislikes girls and boys
who gossip. To be or not to be a typist is Carolyn's
big question. "Oh, my gosh !" identifies this ardent
lover of sports, dancing, and clothes.
BERNARD TOPPER-shies away from gossipers
and big assignments. "You don't know, do ya?" shrugs
"Bud" who fancies baseball, music, popular and hill-
billy, and movies.
REUBEN WADDELL-favors blondes and
Weaner's sky-scrapers. "Bunch of crumbs!" says
"Rube" in reference to English in general. No definite
plans as yet for this senior.
ROBERT WALT ER-wants to be a famous Jack
Frost fartistj. "Bob" gets mad when his car won't
start, but likes plenty of time, movies, and Christmas,
particularly fond of a "Maryland gal," "you know."
DOROTHY WAYBRIGHT-"Holy mud !" Does
"Dottie" get peeved over boys that don't jitterbug!
There's college in her crystal ball. Licorice, a certain
trombone player, orangeades, and music make this
JAY WAYBRIGHT-Farming will be his occupa-
tion soon. In general English has no charm for
"Jakie," an admirer of sports, "ersters," and country
ham. "No kidding!"
GLORIA WEBER-dreams of extensive traveling
and nursing. "Oh no!" yells "Shorty" when boys hit
girls on the head. Gloria is ecstatic over banana splits
and taking absence slips around.
DONALD' WEIKERT-is prominent because of
his freckles and red hair. "Reds" just doesnlt seem to
go far with girls. Bell bottom trousers will be the
favorite attire for this fellow, with a whim for movies.
NINA WILLIAMS-C.M.P.'s, dancing, and bas-
ketball thrill this "Queen" of the class of '50, Nina
scoffs "by darn !" at chemistry experiments and gossipy
folks. She hopes to hang out an M.D. shingle.
BETTY WITHEROW-Ray Bolger is her favorite
dancer. "Betty" gets a kick out of hearing dramas on
the radio. "You tell 'em!" replies this future nurse
who hates embarrassing remarks.
JANE VVITHEROW-has a grand desire to hold
a typewriter in her lap Csecretary to usj. This Barlow
girl gets peeved at school buses and cowboys. "Guinea"
really goes for Barlow baseball, shorthand class, and
chocolate ice cream.
LAURA WITHEROW-will be on the pay-roll of
Rea and Derick, Inc. "Holy cow l" exclaims "Tootie"
who cares nothing for catty girls. Laura is nuts about
cooking, sports, and a boy from Fairfield.

MILLS IN ADAMS COUNTY
Early settlers in Adams County soon found spots
along the several creeks where mills might operate
successfully. A few of them are listed here.
About 1738 Hans Martin Kitzmiller built a log mill
near the headwaters of the Little Conewago. In 1773
the heirs of Michael Will sold the "farm and improve-
ments" in Union township, containing a grist mill, to
In 1777 Francis Knauss built a mill one-half mile
east of Arendtsville. About 1795 James Range built a
hemp and chopping mill a mile from New Oxford, on
the Little Conewago.
In 1796 John Wright sold to Michael Minick a saw
mill, located about one mile from Bendersville. Harry
Snyder built the first mill at the junction of the Upper
Conewago and Opossum Creeks in 1798.
Around the year 1800 David Pfoutz built a cording
mill below the forks of Big and Little Marsh Creeks.
Enlarging the mill, he carried on the fulling and
dyeing operations in connection with the cording.
In 1809 Christopher Hershey bought from Alexander
Cobean land in Cumberland township, surveyed by
Moses McClean, on which there was a stone grist
and saw mill.
It is an accepted fact that in the year 1818 in an old
shed in Gettysburg, there were two men busily en-
gaged at repairing stage coaches. On occasions the
sale of a new stage made the small industry a profit-
About the same time the coach works of David Getz
on North Baltimore Street were so well patronized
that he advertised on cards "Orders executed in any
part of the United States or elsewhere."
By 1831, mainly on Middle Street, ten or eleven
shops, devoted to the various branches of the carriage-
making industry were employing one hundred thirty
workmen. This industry, considered the town's chief
industry. flourished until the time of the Civil War,
with the carriages sold mainly in Maryland and Vir-
ginia. The outbreak of the war destroyed the southern
market and led to the decline of this industry in Get-
In the year 1830, there lived near I-Iunterstown, in
a newly-built brick house, the English and German
speaking family of John Studebaker, newly arrived
from York County. A third son, John Mohler Stude-
baker, was born in 1833, at a time when the black-
smith and carriage making business was providing only
a hand-to-mouth existence.
For apparent reasons the family of five left the
environs of Gettysburg in the year 1835 in a com-
modious Conestoga wagon built by the elder Stude-
baker, to take up residence in Ashland, Ohio.
The Conestoga wagon was used again for a journey
to the VVestg this time the year is 1851 and the stop-
ping-off place is South Bend, Ind. The father had
already made an exploring trip on horseback three
Two wagons were made by Henry and Clem Stude-
baker in 1852, but the next year young john, driving
a wagon made with his own hands left for the West.
where in California, in a hve year period, he amassed
a small fortune of 358,000 making wheelbarrows for
prospectors in search of gold.
Back in South Bend at the age of twenty-four, John
bought out his brother I-Ienry and allied himself with
his brother Clem in the wagon business. Eventually all
five brothers were interested financially in the Stude-
baker lirm and the horseless carriage was rivaling the
wagon in the enlarged business firm.
The life story of John Mohr Studebaker is typical
of the "Young American makes good" in the business
world. Although he died in 1917, his sound business
practices are brought to mind every time a Studebaker
The tanneries did a line business both in Gettysburg
and Adams County. The larger tanneries were built
about 125 years ago, but the smaller ones were built
many years before that.
James Gettys, Mr. Winebrenner, and Samuel S.
Forney had tanneries in Gettysburg. James Hill was
engaged in the same business in Fairfield and Isaac
Thomas had a tannery in Menallen Township.
Silkworms were raised' by a few growers in Adams
County. The growth of the silkworm was a rather
popular undertaking for a period of about thirty years.
During the battle of Gettysburg, the worms starved.
The death of the worms brought to a sudden end the
dreams of those who had been engaged in a rather
profitable industry, starting about 1830.
Soon after the battle some citizens purchased "Mauris
Multicaulisu seeds in Philadelphia and planted them
along the Baltimore Pike. They later sold the young
trees to Mr. Sherfy, who in turn replanted them south
of the Peach Orchard. These trees were unable to
stand the rigor of Adams County winters and soon died.
FRUIT GROWING INDUSTRY
When Noah Sheely, of Hilltown, went to the World's
Fair held at Chicago in 1893, he did a far-reaching job
of publicizing Adams County apples. His efforts suc-
ceeded that same year to the extent of selling 5,000
barrels of apples at 81.50 a barrel, the iirst big sale of
Adams County fruit.
Wholesale planting of apple trees started in 1875
when Andrew Koser and C. I. Tyson set out tw:
blocks of ten acres each of apple trees in Quaker Val-
ley. Noah Sheely had planted twenty-three acres in
apple trees about 1881 and about the same time Samuel
Bream gave eight acres of his land to the growth of
In time the growth of cherry and peach trees proved
practical. Nowadays this part of Pennsylvania is pop-
ularly referred to as the "Fruit Belt."
ADAMS COUNTY COMMUNITIES
Himterstown was established about 1750 by David
Hunter, who came from Ireland in 1741. It was known
as "Woodstock" in early years and about the close of
the last century was known as "Straban Center."
M cShe1'ryst0wn was founded in 1763 by Patrick Mc-
Sherry, one of the earliest settlers in Adams County.
East Berlin was settled by John F rankengerger, who
named it Berlin when he laid out the town on May 8,
1764. The first English school in the county was opened
here in 1764.
Littlestown, known as the "Dutch Plateau," was laid
out in 1765 by Peter Klein and was first called Peters-
Gettysburg was laid out in 1780 by James Gettys,
proprietor. On March 10, 1806, it became by law an
incorporated borough. This borough boasted of a post
office, a store and a blacksmith shop.
C ashtown got its name from the word "Cash," which
people around there always believed in. In 1791 an inn
was built in this community.
N ew Oxford was surveyed in 1792 by James Bolton.

THADDEUS' TAPEWORM VIADUCT
The only visible remains of this viaduct are located near Iron Springs in Hamiltonban Town-
ship and this is the only portion now in existence of the once grandiose project of Thaddeus
Stevens. Into this flowed S750,000 of the money of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for a
projected railroad from Gettysburg to Waynesboro without even a single rail or tie being laid.
Only the splendid arches of the viaduct still remain to be seen. It was called the TAPEWORM
Railroad for two reasons: C15 its zig-zag course meandered fifty-eight miles over the mountains
and touched all of Stevens' mining properties instead of following a straight course for thirty-four
miles between the towns g C25 also because like the worm it was named after, it was a "great
consumer" of state appropriations.

A COUNTY SEAT IS CHOSEN
The most fiourishing settlement of the new county,
by reason of its location and population of almost 700
was Gettys-town, named for its founder, James Gettys,
who had laid out the town in 1780. In the years preced-
ing 1787 James Gettys's father referred to this village
as "Marsh Creek Settlement."
On the erection of Adams County, the Gettys settle-
ment was chosen as the seat of justice, inasmuch as
James Gettys had the sagacity to lay out his town in
building lots, and had offered a site for the 11ew
county's court house.
The act of the Legislature authorized the levy of a
tax for the construction of county buildings and desig-
nated the village for the first time as Gettysburg. How-
ever, before the decision was made, Hunter's Town had
a favorable chance of obtaining the honor.
OLD COURT House IN THE SQUARE
GREATER CONEWAGO PRESBYTERIAN
Four miles northeast of Gettysburg, near Hunters-
town, stands an historic, moss-covered stone church,
the Greater Conewago Presbyterian Church, named
from the Conewago Creek that flows nearby.
Although the date of the organization of this church
cannot be determined accurately, it was no doubt
organized about the time of the settlement of the
Scotch-Irish in this part of the county. The earliest
authentic record dates from 1740. The first church
erected by this congregation was built between the
years of 1743 and 1749. The structure, built of logs,
stood near the site of the present church.
In 1786 the old log church gave way to the present
stone edifice, which shows by the architectural design
that for more than 150 years it has served as a meet-
ing place for those who come to worship God. Al-
though the mosses of successive years have gathered
on the foundation stones of the church, the walls ap-
pear as firm and perfect as those of a recently built
About one hundred years ago the church underwent
some changes. The entrance was changed from the
side to the end. A vestibule and a choir gallery were
added and the old goblet-shaped pulpit with its sound-
ing board was replaced by one of a more modern
In 1863, during the battle of Gettysburg, the church
served as a hospital for the enemy wounded.
To those seeking for records of early settlers of
this community, the burial ground furnishes a rich
store of information. D

GETTYSBURG'S FIRST PUBLIC SCHOOL
On Carlisle Street where Doctor Donley's house is
to be found today once stood a well known log school
building, erected more than one hundred years ago.
The school was ideally located-at the juncture of the
Mummasburg, Carlisle and Harrisburg roads.
A newspaper notice stated the original purpose of
September 28, 1832
We, the Subscribers, agree to pay to a Treasurer,
hereafter to be appointed by us, S25 for each share of
stock subscribed by us for the purpose of erecting a
School House, in the borough of Gettysburg, to be
occupied as an English School, and rented to the most
approved Teacher at a sum not exceeding seven per
cent on the original cost or capital invested.

The rise and growth of Pennsylvania College and
its Preparatory Department in time eliminated the need
for such a school, but the building was destined to
continue to serve for educational purposes.
The provisions of the Free School Act of 1834 re-
quired that a school and teachers be maintained for
Gettysburg children. The wisdom of establishing the
first borough public school in this Carlisle Street loca-
tion cannot be questioned. This structure was used for
public school purposes until the school directors of the
borough built the present High Street School on East

His athletic record reads much like fiction. During
his college days, he was a member of the varsity foot-

It is interesting to note what the future held for this

surgeons in the vicinity of that city.
