John Master

Male 1783 - 1852  (68 years)


Meschter, Christopher

Christopher Meschter, son of Gregorius and Maria Meisther, acquired his father's farm in Hereford Twp., PA. and he also bought other land which he conveyed to his son Christopher for 1200 pounds. He married Christina Yeakel on May 6, 1766 and had ten children between 1767 and 1787. Their first five children all died before the age of five, their sixth, Regina, married to Daniel Yocom, died at age 23 and the remaining four children all lived into the 1850's. During the war for independence he was a member of Captain Daniel Springer's Company of Militia which was a part of the Fifth Battalion of Pennsylvania troops.

Christopher Meschter died in February 1791 and, as are his parents, is buried in Washington Schwenkfelder Cemetery. His will was signed on Feb. 8, 1791. His widow was left with five children and a petition was made to the court to appoint guardians. John George Lahr and Isaac Zigler were appointed guardians for the three minor children. His widow, Christina, married Jacob Hunsberger in April, 1794. On May 27, 1799, Christina Hunsberger received 49 pounds 2s. 4d., the balance of money willed her by her first husband. In signing her name she made "her mark."
