Note
ELDER SAMUEL FETTINGER Source: OUR FETTINGER AND OTHER RELATED FAMILIES by Veta Fettinger Vaughan - 1978. Variations: Vottinger, Fottinger, Fettinger The earliest record found for the Fettinger surname was in Gmunden Austria in the early 1700's. It is possible Samuel may have descended from one of the branches that spilt and left Austria during the Reformation early 1700. According to family history, the Fettinger family departed from Wurttemburg, Germany early 1799 for America. Samuel Fettinger, the forefather of the Pike County, Indiana Fettingers, was born April 19, 1799 before the ship reached land. In Federal Census Records, Samuel listed New Jersey as his birthplace. Perhaps because that was the first place he lived. The family was also in Pennsylvania before going to the Territory of Illinois. Some of Samuel's children listed his birth place as Pennsylvania in later census records and a granddaughter said he lived in Pennsylvania before migrating West. No records were found for the Fettinger family in New Jersey or Pennsylvania during Samuel's childhood. However, a Henry Fettinger born 1811 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania is believed to be a nephew of Elder Samuel. Descendants of Henry were found and Veta exchanged correspondence and family information with them. Henry went to Altoona, Pennsylvania from Philadelphia 1856. His father was born in Wurttemberg, Germany - emigrated to America. The father lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania before going to Salem, New Jersey in preparation of a move to the Territory of Illinois where other members of the family already lived. Henry's father died of pneumonia five days after arrival in Salem and was buried there. The family returned to Lancaster. Veta recorded them as our Fettinger family that did not come West and they are represented in the book. Elder Samuel had a nephew in the East according to family history. This family remained in Pennsylvania and is not the same Henry mentioned below in Illinois. The first record for Samuel is found when he was 21 years old as Head of Household in the 1820 Bonpas Precinct, Edwards County, Illinois census records. He was married to Margaret Anthis (Antes, Antis) and they had a young son under 10. Henry Fettinger (believed to be the father of Samuel) was listed as Head of Household in the 1820 Edwards County, Illinois census with a young wife, two males under 10 and one male 46 and over. George M. purchased land 1817 and 1818 in Edwards County. He was not listed as Head of a Household in 1820. George M. and Henry were listed as voters in the 1822 elections in Edwards County. Was he a grandfather or uncle of Samuel? Was he the extra male 46 and over enumerated with Henry? Other members of the family were also in Edwards County. Maria Fettinger Ernest and her husband Christ Ernest living close to Henry. Margaret Anthis' father, George Anthis, Jr., and two brothers, John and Larkin were also there. In 1824 Wabash County was formed from Edwards and Bonpas Precinct later became Belmont Precinct. By 1830, Samuel was the only Fettinger found in Illinois and by 1840 he and Margaret are in Pike County, Indiana with five sons and three daughters. Their oldest son, George, was married living in Gibson County and had a young son. So begins our Pike County, Indiana Fettingers. October 20, 1835 Samuel purchased his first land in Madison Township. In 1837, 80 acres was purchased east of Union and in 1842 an additional 40 acres. Churches in Pike County, Indiana Elder Samuel Fettinger served as minister: Little Zion Church - organized January 8, 1848 - first minister - served until July 1855 South Fork Church - organized March 19, 1864 - first minister. White River Church - organized April 11, 1835. Elder Samuel was the second minister and served until 1872. In 1872, 33 members of this church were dismissed by letter to constitute the Primitive Baptist Church of Pleasant Ridge. Elder Samuel Fettinger died February 11, 1873, three months after the Primitive Baptist Church was organized. He is buried in Pleasant Ridge Cemetery as is Margaret who died two years later. Pleasant Ridge Cemetery online - 68 Fettingers are listed as are many of the related families. Elder Samuel Fettinger married many couples, including his children. He was Justice of the Peace, guardian of several children beside his own grandchildren and administrator of his children's estates and many others. There was always young children in Samuel and Margaret's home. They reared seven of their grandchildren who were orphaned. One of them being my great grandfather, Samuel, Sr., son of Henry. Samuel and Margaret moved to what is now Campbellville about 1855. He was a man of many talents. Samuel had a Cooper Shop, Tanning Yard and Sorghum Mill. He farmed, raised livestock and was a skilled weaver. While grinding cane, Samuel's hand was caught in the mill. The arm had to be amputated and according to family history, the arm was buried in Pleasant Ridge Cemetery. Some family stories/folklore: Elder Samuel was strict about religion, but was kind and good. He was a small man. Margaret, his wife, was a large woman, not fat, but tall and well built. She had blue eyes, blond hair and was double jointed. Most of the Fettingers had blue eyes and light hair. Margaret would stand in the backyard and blow a conch shell to call the family to dinner. Samuel always wore a black frock coat and carried a little black bag. He rode a small white horse. Margaret smoked a clay pipe in the evening after all of the chores were done. ANTHIS FAMILY Margaret Anthis was born February 8, 1801 in Territory North West of the Ohio, in Knox County. She was the daughter of George Antis, Jr. probably born in Virginia where his parents, George Antis, Sr. and wife, Margaret owned 271 acres in Hampshire County, Virginia. Anthis, Jr. and wife, name unknown, had two children born in Virginia 1792 and 1793. By 1795, they were in Indiana where their third child was born. The family moved to to Illinois in 1816 where Margaret married Elder Samuel Fettinger. George Anthis, Jr. served in the War of 1812 as a Corporal in the Indiana Mounted Riflemen as did three of his brothers. George Anthis, Sr. and wife, Margaret, lived in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Greene County Tennessee and Knox County, Indiana as well as in Wabash (then Edwards) County, Illinois. He was a Cooper - his Edge Carpenter and Cooper tools were mentioned in his will. George, Sr. and Margaret had at least ten children that were mentioned in his will written MAY 11, 1802. George. Sr. had two brothers and a sister, Richard, Frances and Elizabeth, wife of Peter Barekman. George, Sr. probably descended from one of the Antes or Antis branches of Germany who settled in New York early 1700, the name being changed to Anthis by the French in Indiana.
