Generation No. 3


3. JURIAN WESTFALL (NICHOLAS JURIAN2 WESTPHALEN, JURIAN1) was born 1629 in Holland, and died Abt. 1667 in Esopus (Kingston), New York. He married MARRETJE HANSEN 1654 in Esopus (Kingston), New York, daughter of HANS VAN NOORDSTRAND and RYMERIG VOLKERT. She was born 1636 in Norstrand, Holstein, Holland, and died 1680 in Kingston, Ulster County, New York.

Notes by Walter Westfall:
Much of the information above came from a book about the Westfall's researched by Ruby Genevieve (Lentz) Wilmore, the daughter of my father's half sister Grace (Westfall) Lentz, and from internet sources.

On August 4, 1642 my ancestor Jurian Westfall (Juriaen Van Westphalen) arrived in New Amsterdam, New York aboard a ship called "The Houttuyn" from Luyderdorp, Holland. He was only 13 at the time. His family had migrated to Holland from Westphalia in Germany in the 1600's. It is not known whether his parents died in Holland or enroute, or he came with other relatives.

My first recorded Westfall ancestor came to America 8-4-1642 aboard a ship called ''The Houttuyn" which left Texal, Holland 6-6-1642. At age 13 Jurian (George) Westfall arrived at the port of New Amsterdam (New York). He had lived in Luyderdorp, The Netherlands. His Westfall ancestors had immigrated to Holland from Westphalia in Germany about 1600. The name Westfall originally was preceded by Von which indicated German nobility. It is not known whether his parents died in Holland or enroute, or he came with other relatives. Jurian married Maritge (Mary) Hanson whose father was Hans Hanson who had a farm on Long Island. According to old Dutch Reformed Church records they were married in 1655 and had 6 children: Rymerick, Johannes (our direct ancestor who married Maritge Kool), Abel, Elsjen, Symen, and Nicholas. According to old records Jurian was a farmer, and he was killed by indians while acting as a guide for a troop of soldiers in 1667. His eldest son was Johannes born in 1659 who was our direct ancestor. Johannes moved with his family in about 1700 on the Delaware River near the NY/NJ line. Johannes grandson Cornelius moved with his family to Virginia about 1770. Cornelius's great-great grandson Jasper moved to Fieldon, IL in 1893.

I found the following information in a book "American Nomads" written by Emily Stowell whose ancestor Jacob Kuykendall married Sara Westfall daughter of Johannes. The Esopus Indians lived near Wiltwyck and for a number of years they were peaceful, but in 1663 they burned and looted the town. There were 12 men, 2 children, and 4 women killed, and 6 women and 7 children taken prisoner. Jurian and his family escaped harm at the time, but later in 1667 or 1668 Jurian was killed by Indians who were at war with the Esopus Indians while he was guiding a troop of British soldiers.

Children of JURIAN WESTFALL and MARRETJE HANSEN are:

4.   JOHANNES WESTFALL, b. 1659, Esopus (Kingston), New York.

RYMERICK WESTFALL.

Notes for RYMERICK WESTFALL: Rymerick's husband Thomas Quick was killed by the Iroquois Indians during a raid in 1696 as were other members of the family. There is a marker on state road 209 that marks the spot of the massacre of the Westfall family. Rymerick was Jurian's daughter.

Generation No. 4


4. JOHANNES WESTFALL (JURIAN3, NICHOLAS JURIAN2 WESTPHALEN, JURIAN1) was born 1659 in Esopus (Kingston), New York. He married MARRETJE KOOL, daughter of JACOB KOOL and MARRITJE SIMONS.

Notes by Walter Westfall: In 1696 Jurian's son Johannes (my direct ancestor} and 18 others including his brothers Symen, Nicholas, and his widowed sister Rymerick Quick bought land from the Minsi Indians along the Delaware River near the New York/New Jersey line. The land lies principally in Deerpark Township, Orange County, New York. The peaceful Minsi Indians were one of the three tribes of the Lenni Lenape people. About 1699 Johannes and his family moved to what was called the Minisink settlement. They were among the first white people to live in the area. Johannes oldest son Jurian and his friend Jacob Kuykendall hunted and trapped with the Minsi Indians as youths, and later traded with them. Jurian married Jacob's sister Styntje Kuykendall and Jacob married Jurian's sister Sara westfall. They raised their families and farmed there in the Minisink Valley along the Delaware River at peace with the Indians for many years. Jurian had the first apple orchard in the area, and Jacob established the first trading post.

Children of JOHANNES WESTFALL and MARRETJE KOOL are:

Generation No. 5


5. JURIAN WESTFALL (JOHANNES4, JURIAN3, NICHOLAS JURIAN2 WESTPHALEN, JURIAN1) was born Bef. April 27, 1684. He married STYNTJE KUYKENDALL.

Notes by Walter Westfall:

Johannes oldest son Jurian and his friend Jacob Kuykendall hunted and trapped with the Minsi Indians as youths, and later traded with them. Jurian married Jacob's sister Styntje Kuykendall and Jacob married Jurian's sister Sara westfall. They raised their families and farmed there in the Minisink Valley along the Delaware River at peace with the Indians for many years. Jurian had the first apple orchard in the area, and Jacob established the first trading post.

Child of JURIAN WESTFALL and STYNTJE KUYKENDALL is:

JACOB WESTFALL.

In about 1754 to 1760 there were the French and Indian Wars, and even friendly Indians like the Minsi joined with the French against the settlers all throughout the colonies. Every small community built their own fort to protect themselves from the marauding Indian attacks. There was a Westfall fort along the New York/New Jersey line. There was also a Westfall Fort, a stockade fort erected by Jacob Westfall in 1774, located on the southern border of the site of Beverly, Randolph County, Virginia (now West Virginia) near mouth of Files Creek. Scene of an Indian attack in 1782. Jacob was the son of Jurian and Styntje (Kuykendall) Westfall. Jacob migrated to the wilderness of Virginia in 1743 with his Uncle Abel and cousin John.

David Tygart (or Taggart) and Robert Files (or Foyle) were the first settlers in present-day Randolph County. They arrived in 1753 (or 1754). Files built his cabin near Beverly and Tygart's cabin was constructed two miles to the north. The Tygart River and Valley are named in honor of David Tygart and Files Creek is named for Robert Files. That winter, Indians attacked the Files' cabin and killed him, his wife, and five of his six children. One of his sons was not in the cabin at the time of the attack and escaped. He ran to Tygart's cabin to warn him of the Indians' presence. They then left the county for good, moving east into Pendleton County. Eighteen years passed before the next settlers arrived in Randolph County. In 1772, several families moved to the area, including the Hadden, Conley, Whiteman, Warwick, Nelson, Westfall, Riffle, and Stalnaker families.

Two small forts were constructed in present-day Randolph County during Lord Dunmore's War in 1774. Fort Westfall was constructed at Beverly and Fort Currence near Huttonsville. Other small stockade forts were soon constructed. Jacob's son George Westfall later also had a fort in the area. The area's settlers gathered in the forts whenever Indians were known to be in the area. Isolated incidents between the settlers and Indians continued for many years. The bloodiest incidents occurred in April and May 1791 when an Indian raiding party killed about a dozen settlers in the county. Among those killed were Joseph Kinnan and three of his five children. They were killed on May 11, 1791. His wife was taken captive, and was not released until the Indians' defeat at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794. A few days after the Kinnan's were killed, the Indian raiding party killed Frank Riffle and William Currence. It is believed that they were the last settlers killed by Indians in Randolph County

6. ABEL WESTFALL (JOHANNES4, JURIAN3, NICHOLAS JURIAN2 WESTPHALEN, JURIAN1) was born Bef. February 09, 1695/96 in New York, and died 1755 in Virginia. He married ANTJEN BOGAERT February 25, 1715/16 in Kingston, New York, daughter of CORNELIUS BOGAERT and EVA HORNBECK. She was born May 09, 1697 in Kingston, New York.

Cornelius and his wife Elizabeth moved away from the Delaware River to the Virginia Territory near the south branch of the Potomac River near the present day town of Romney. Cornelius's father Abel had migrated there in 1743 with his nephew Jacob and son John, and was granted 400 acres in Augusta County, Virginia in 1748. In 1754 Hampshire County, Virginia was created from Augusta and Frederic Counties, and Romney became the Hampshire County seat in 1762, and later in 1863 became a part of West Virginia when that state was admitted to the union.

7. CORNELIUS WESTFALL, SR. (ABEL5, JOHANNES4, JURIAN3, NICHOLAS JURIAN2 WESTPHALEN, JURIAN1) was born October 15, 1721 in Orange County, New York, and died December 12, 1783 in Hampshire Co. (West) Virginia. He married (1) ELIZABETH WESTFALL November 20, 1747 in Minisink, New York, daughter of JACOB WESTFALL and MARGRIETJE DE DUYSTER. She was born Bef. January 16, 1725/26 in Sineaquan, New York, and died Bef. 1782. He married (2) ELEANOR MAGDALENE WESTFALL, also the daughter of JACOB WESTFALL and MARGRIETJE DE DUYSTER. She was born Bef. October 22, 1721.

Notes by Walter Westfall:

Cornelius and his wife Elizabeth moved away from the Delaware River to the Virginia Territory near the south branch of the Potomac River near the present day town of Romney. Cornelius's father Abel had migrated there in 1743 with his nephew Jacob and son John, and was granted 400 acres in Augusta County, Virginia in 1748. In 1754 Hampshire County, Virginia was created from Augusta and Frederic Counties, and Romney became the Hampshire County seat in 1762, and later in 1863 became a part of West Virginia when that state was admitted to the union.

Cornelius Sr. and his son Cornelius Jr. (my direct ancestors) both fought in the Revolutionary War. Cornelius Westfall Jr.'s father-in-law Jacob Helmick also fought in the Revolutionary war. John Wesley and Sarah (Vannoy) Westfall's sons Abel and Cornelius also served in the Revolutionary war. Cornelius was a Lieutenant in his brother Captain Abel Westfall's Company, the 8th Virginia Regiment, and was at Valley Forge in 1777 and 1778. Abraham Westfall was also a Captain in the Revolutionary War. He fought under Washington and Lafayette at the battles of Grand Creek, Bunker Hill (where he was wounded), Stony Point, Brandywine, Trenton and Bloody Run. He was the son of Petrus and Arientje (Rosencrans) Westfall.

[NOTE by Ron Wall: Cornelius Westfall Jr. applied for a Rev. War pension which was denied. He applied based on the belief that he was eligible because of service in the Indian wars that followed the Rev. War. Several Westfall researchers have said that Cornelius Sr. had also served. I have yet to see any documentation to support this. ELEANOR MAGDALENE WESTFALL was the widow of David Cole and John Davets, probably the sister of Elizabeth - RNW]

Portrait of Jasper Mifflin and Frances McCaulley Westfall

Notes by Walter Westfall:
Jasper Mifflin Westfall was born near Roanoke in Lewis County West Virginia in 1857. He died on his farm near Fieldon in Jersey County Illinois in 1934. He was the son of Emanuel (1828-1863) and Hannah Kelley Westfall (1837-1918). His father Emanuel Westfall was killed while plowing during the Civil War in 1863 in West Virginia, the year West Virginia split off and became a separate state.

After my great grandfather's death his wife Hannah Kelley Westfall, moved with her 2 sons (my grandfather Jasper who was only 6 and his one year old brother Emanuel Jr.) to Bloomington, IL. She may have had relatives in the area.

In 1878 at the age of 21 my grandfather Jasper Mifflin Westfall married his first wife Mary Jane Shannon. That same year they moved with her parents accompanying to near Coyville, Kansas. It was near the Oklahoma line. He farmed near Coyville, Kansas in the 1880's when he was married to his first wife Mary Jane Shannon. They had 6 daughters-Eva, Nora, Stella, Mamie, Grace, and Marietta who died when a baby.

It was said my grandfather Jasper Mifflin Westfall once went on a cattle drive on the Chisholm Trail. An old family story was that Jesse James once stayed at my grandfather's farm when he was wounded and later came back with a cow and gave the family the cow for helping him. Also it was said my grandfather sometimes wore 2 pearl handled long barreled 44 caliber revolvers in those days.

In about 1886 he and his family went with a team of oxen pulling his wagon from Kansas to W. Virginia where he was born. He lived near Reedyville (now Reedy), W. Virginia in Roane County. At least two of his uncles lived there at the time, and an aunt Merinda sister to his father, having moved there from Lewis County W. Virginia. There in about 1893 after divorcing his first wife Mary Jane Shannon, he met and married my father's mother and my grandmother Frances McCaulley. Shortly after their marriage they then left West Virginia and settled in the Jersey County, IL area about 1893.

In 1893 my grandfather divorced his first wife and married my grandmother Frances McCaulley. He and his first wife had 6 daughters--Stella, Mamie, Grace, Nora, Eva, And Marietta who died a few months after birth. My grandfather moved to near Fieldon, IL in 1893 shortly after his marriage to his new wife. In 1899 he bought the farm where my father was raised and where I was born and raised south of Fieldon, IL.

My father said his father was a stern disciplinarian and once whipped him with a blacksnake whip until his back was bloody because he had disobeyed him. He said his father was a big man and his mother was small woman with red hair. He said his father planted an apple orchard on the hill above the farmhouse and had a large grape arbor. He farmed about 300 acres at one time. My father and his brother Lonnie worked in the field at a young age.

In later years his father sold off most his land. He died in 1934 on the farm after several years of stomach problems. The doctor thought he might have had cancer. My grandmother died just a year later. In January of 1936 she went out barefooted in the middle of the night to put some straw in a pen for a sow with some little pigs and died several days later with Pneumonia. My father's parents are buried in Grimes-Neely Cemetery West of Jerseyville, Illinois.

The daughters of Jasper Mifflin Westfall and his first wife Mary Jane (Shannon) Westfall were Marietta Westfall (who died as a baby), and Eva Westfall, and Nora Westfall who were raised by my grandfather Jasper Mifflin Westfall and his second wife Frances (McCaulley) Westfall on the farm at Fieldon with my father as he grew up, and the other half sisters were Mamie Westfall, Stella Westfall, and Grace Westfall who were raised by their mother, my grandfather Jasper Mifflin Westfall's first wife, Mary Jane (Shannon) Westfall in Kansas. She remarried, but her second husband's name is unknown.

My father's Grandmother Hannah (Kelley) Westfall (1837-1918) lived with the family when father was a boy. She was of Irish descent. She later lived with her other son Emanuel Westfall Jr., my grandfather Jasper Mifflin Westfall's younger brother who lived in Gibson City, IL where she died in 1918.

Walter Edward and Lovie Kraushaar Westfall, February, 1921

Notes by WALTER WESTFALL:
My grandparents had neighboring farms and the families visited & helped each other at harvesting and butchering times. My parent's both worked on the farms from an early age helping their parents. My parents Walter Edward (Ed) Westfall and Lovie (Kraushaar) Westfall eloped because her parents didn't want her to marry. My mother packed her clothes and slipped from the house in the middle of the night while her parents were asleep and met my father who was waiting with a buggy. They went to Alton, IL that night and were married the next day 2-26-1921. They were married by a Justice Of The Peace. My father's oldest brother Lonnie Westfall was best man. They boarded a train for Gibson City, IL where my father's Uncle Emanuel Westfall and his family lived. My father worked there on a farm for about a year before returning to Alton to run a restaurant on Belle St. where my sister Mildred was born 4-20-1922. Later my father worked at Shell Oil and Tannery and He and my mother lived in Hartford, IL.

In the late 1920's my parents and their little daughter Mildred moved on a farm near Nutwood along the Illinois River. It rained a lot while they were there and the levee broke a time or two. In about 1931 they bought a farm near my grandfather Jasper Mifflin Westfall's farm near Fieldon, the home place where my father grew up. It was during The Depression and times were hard. They had to get water from a shallow well at a long distance from the house which often went dry. My sister Mildred walked to same school her mother Lovie (Kraushaar) Westfall had attended several miles away.

Mildred married Russell Oliver Thompson (1919-2004), son of Logan and Viola (Bowers) Thompson, who lived on a farm nearby. The marriage ended in divorce and Mildred returned to her parents farm where her son Russell was born 8-22-1937. Her first husband Russell Thompson remarried to the former Hazel Schaaf, and they had a son Raymond Thompson of Fieldon, IL, and a daughter Verna Kay (Thompson) Ontis of Fieldon, IL, and a stepdaughter Shirley Jean Johnson of Roxana, IL. Later in the 1940's Mildred remarried to Joseph V. Alben in Alton, IL. In about 1941 my parents bought my grandfather Jasper Mifflin Westfall's farm after he and my grandmother's death, from T. K. Matthews who had bought the farm after their death. There 6-30-1943 I was born, Walter Charles Westfall, the son of Walter Edward (Ed) Westfall and Lovie Katherine (Kraushaar) Westfall, near Fieldon, Otter Creek Township, Jersey County, IL. In 1973 my parents and I moved to Pearl, IL. My father Walter Edward Westfall died 3-15-1977 in Pittsfield, Pike County, IL, and my mother Lovie (Kraushaar) Westfall died 3-17-1995 Pittsfield, Pike County, IL. My parents are buried in Grimes-Neely Cemetery 3 miles West of Jerseyville, Illinois on IL state Rt. 16.

LOVIE KATHERINE KRAUSHAAR grandparents came from Germany in the mid 1800's. My mother Lovie (Kraushaar) Westfall is a third generation American.

1. My mother's grandfather Frank Kraushaar date of birth about 1836 in Germany, died about 1879. He emigrated from Germany to America. He married Julia Anna Albert. She was born in about 1842 in Germany and died about 1900. They are buried in Fieldon Cemetery in Fieldon, IL.

2. Charles Kraushaar my mother's father (4-4-1875-11-23-1948) married Caroline Haushalter 4-14-1898 in Jersey County, IL. She was the daughter of George and Margaret Schiller Haushalter. George J. Haushalter died in 1881, date of birth 1842 in Missouri. His parents born in France. His father may have been named named George or John Haushalter. Margaret remarried in 1885 to George Meyer. They had no children. She was born 1844 in Bavaria, and died 4-12-1926 in Jerseyville. She was invalid in wheelchair in later years.
