The Batdorffe is in Switzerland two words: "Bot" meaning "a place to take a bath," and "dorfe" for "village." It is said to have become the name of families who in early times lived in a small village located upon a lake or stream of fine water, where possibly there was some summer resort. The name has various spellings, including Badorf, Batdorf, Bottdorff, Battdorff, and Bottorff.

11-greats-grandfather Johannes Jacob Batdorf

He was a minister, born 1534, and died 1584 Westphalia Germany.


10-greats-grandfather Johannes Batdorf

He was born 1564 Westphalia Germany. He attended Gymnasium (classical high school where Latin and German were stressed) at Hamm and Dortmund. After his father's death in 1584 he studied in Harburg, and later at Herborn where he received "a good foundation in the languages and soon excelled his teachers." He finally settled in Basel Switzerland in 1588, where he spent the rest of his life studying and teaching. In 1614 he was listed as Professor Johannes Batdorf, a teacher of the Hebrew language. His son and his grandson also are listed as Professors.


9-greats-grandfather Johannes Batdorf

He followed in his father's footsteps and in 1647 was a Professor who was expounding the religious controversies and was teaching the methods of expounding the Gospel Gottesgel Aineheit. In 1654 he was listed as a Professor of the Old Testament.


8-greats-grandfather John Jacob Peter Batdorf

He was born in Basel Switzerland and, following the family tradition, was listed as a Professor in 1680. With his wife Anna Maria Catharina left their native Switzerland in search of a better life where they would no longer have to endure the horrors and terrors of religious persecutions. They lived for several years in Palatine Germany where their five children were born.

In 1707-8 it was so cold in the Rhine Basin that the crops, fruit trees, grape vines and meadows were all killed by the frost. Rivers were icebound and even the seas froze along the coasts. Louis XIV taxed unbearably, and southwest Germany was plundered time and again by French and German robber barons. During the summer of 1708, the family of five children left their home in the village of Badorf, near Stuttgart Germany, and traveled by boat down the Rhine River to Rotterdam Holland. From Rotterdam, they were transported by ship to England to await further transportation to America. They joined the thousands who took advantage of Queen Anne's offer, who had the intention of establishing a colony in present New York State. The trip was extremely long and hard, and not without tragedy for the Batdorf family. The father, our 8-greats-Grandfather, died in 1709 perhaps in London, perhaps enroute at sea, for we find only the widow Anna Catharina and a son and a daughter surviving the journey:

for their children, see "The Walborn in-laws" in the next "Grandfather Martin" section

2.Johannes Martin--our grandparent, see below

(Maria Elizabeth Walborn)

for their children, see the next "Grandfather Martin" section


In Walborn(Walburn)Genealogical History of America compiled by Herman W Walborn of St Paris ChampaignCoOH copyright 1975 pub HammerGraphics PiquaOH, we read a behind-the-scenes-account of how they ended up in New York. It seems that Peter Schuyler, mayor of Albany, needed to attract English support in their constant battle with the French and Indians. They took five Mohawk Sachems to London to impress the Queen, "knowing that the movements of nations are often caused by the veriest trifles." When the Chiefs were in London, they were moved by the unbelievable condition of the Palatines and unsolicitedly and voluntarily presented the Queen a tract of land in Schoharie NY for the use of the distressed Germans. One sixth died on the journey. Upon their arrival and emminent starvation, "the barbarous people showed them no little kindness and out of their own scanty stores of maize gave freely to them...The Indians showed them where to find many edible roots. Many of their feasts were of wild potatoes and ground beans."

Anna Maria Catharina, Martin and Catharina dwelled at Livingston Manor, New York for two years until Governor Hunter refused to pay the bill for their subsistence, because the English Crown was very slow in reimbursing him. They joined a group of 150 Germans who decided to move west to Schoharie, south of Albany, where they remained until 1723. They lived in Neu Ansberg, sometimes called Schmidsdorf.


about his wife...

In 1978, historian George Thomas Zeller with the help of Professor John Valentine of Brigham Young University compiled a history of the Zeller family in which he states that in 1712 Anna Herber, the widow of John Jacob Peter Batdorf, married Johannes Zeller.

Furthermore, for some odd reason, another source thinks that perhaps the Anna Margaretha Oherndorf that married Henrich and had Grandfather Martin as baptismal sponsor for their daughter Maria Elisabetha's baptism 9Jun1717 may have been the widowed mother of Grandfather Martin. I don't get a connection at all, but I cite...


Anna Maria Catharina Herber (b.GE d.1/14/1749 Millbach LebanonCoPA

(John Jacob Peter Batdorf)

(Johannes Zeller) b.1686 Fr d.10/25/1737 Ft ZellerPA m.1712 --see the Zeller section.

7-greats-grandfather Johannes Martin Batdorf

He was born September 1698 in Palatine Germany, arriving with his mother and sister in New York in 1709 (this birthdate is deduced from the fact that on 10 June 1710 his mother was listed as head of family, and where there was a boy of 12 years or over, the boy was listed as head of household). There is no record of it, but about 1717 NewAnnesbergNY he either married Maria Elisabeth Walborn, or they lived as common-law man and wife (which was common due to the shortage of preachers). This was during the time their families were living in the New York encampment. She had been born 25 October 1696 in Wiesbach-Nassau Germany to Hans Adam and Anna Elisabetha (Dietz) Walborn. She was baptized in Weisbaden November 25, 1696.

They moved from Schoharie in 1723, cutting a road to the head waters of the Susquehanna River, down which they floated their flatboats and canoes, and drove their cattle along its banks. When they reached what is now MiddletownPA they turned up Swatara Creek and finally landed at their intended destination in western BerksCountyPA and eastern LebanonCountyPA (then a part of LancasterCountyPA), with no one but Indians for neighbors (in fact, the friendly Indians had been their guides!). Here they squatted, each family picking their own particular spot to build a home.

Martin and Maria Elizabeth built their home on a small branch of the Tulpehocken Creek, about 1 1/2 miles northeast of Myerstown LebananonCoPA, as early as 1727. Martin bought the 329 acres on 2 Nov 1739 from Casper Wister, Brass Button maker of Philadelphia, after squatting there many years. It was originally a tract of 1724 acres granted to Mr Wister by Thomas Penn 10Nov1738. This land was eventually divided among Martin's three sons, Hermanus, George Peter, and Martin Jr. They gave 160 acres and 51 perches of land to son Christian in 1766. This was part of 443 acres purchased from the estate of Thomas Framme. Another part of this went to Henry and to Martin, son of John Adam. Having given away his land, he ordered a quit rent paid to him annually.

Grandfather Martin was first assessed for taxes in ChesterCoPA in 1725. Lancaster County was formed from a part of Chester County in 1729, so for a few years their home was in Chester County. In 1785, his land ws legislated into Dauphin County, and in 1815 the homeplace was transferred to Lebanon County. "It is there yet, and a small stream runs in its original bed until it falls into the Tulpehocken Creek a mile below."

Martin was a charter member and a deacon of Christ Lutheran Ch, Strouchberg, BerksCoPA and in 1748 and 1752 was a high delegate representative to the first organization convention held in PhiladelphiaPA which decided the nucleus for the Lutheran Churches of America. He had an excellent education for those days, and was very proficient in reading adn writing. His signature is on several petitions, including one for a road from Tulpehocken (now Myerstown) to Boone's Meetinghouse below ReadingPA. The road is there yet, and forms a part of the Wm Penn State Highway from Myerstown to Reading.

Their children:

1.Hermanus (b.1718 SchoharieNYd.1763 HeidelbergTwp TulpehockenPA. His widow asked his parents to settle the estate because she wished to remarry. On 4/1/1769 they appeared at Orphans Court at Lancaster to settle the estate. Martin and wife deeded their own land to Hermanus' children (about 10 acres apiece). Due to the amount of land, it was decided to keep it intact as one piece until the children came of age)

ensign in Capt Michael Wolf's Co on duty at Newton BucksCoPA, in service

8/5/1777 to 1/5/1778, their co at Brandywine and GermantownPA. John Henry

commanded a Regiment at the battle of Bunker Hill. They owned 240 acres along

the north bank of the Swatara, extending 235 perches along it. In 1790 they sold it

and moved from near HarrisburgPA to ClarkCoIN, where they lived for about 2yrs.

They moved from PA in a flatboat by the Ohio River. In 1792, they moved to

JeffersonCoKY and settled on a farm 7-8mi from Louisville, where he lived the rest

of his life. He was a pioneer minister in the UB Presbyterian Ch. Six of his children

were members of the Methodist Ch. His sons Samuel and Peter were ministers. A

grandson-in-law, M S Blizzard, wrote this in 1905:

"John Henry, on a certain occasion many years ago, was called upon late one afternoon by two young men with a

message requesting his presence on the evening of that day at a certain place several miles distant from his home for the purpose

of uniting a young couple in marriage. Grandfather at that time was not feeling well and for that reason refused to go with them

and grandmother thought him too poorly to go so far and undertake to return home at night alone and insisted on him to remain at

home. The young men insisted on his going with them and as an inducement to have him go promised to accompny him home

again after the marriage ceremony was performed and it was with that understanding that he finally consented to go with them.

"They arrived safely at the place where he was wanted and after he had perfomred the marriage ceremony and the time for

him to leave for his home had arrived, the young men both utterly refused to go with him. Grandfather knew that his family

would expect him to return home that night and for that reason started home alone on horseback, and that so far was was ever

known by any of his family, was the last time that he was ever seen by any person.

"His horse with saddle and bridle returned home that night, but grandfather never got there. His family and neighbors time

and again searched all through and over the country on either side of the road leading from his home to the place where he

officiated at the wedding and was last seen. They however failed to find or hear of him. Several months or perhaps years after

his disappearance some bones, remnants of clothing and relics that were on his person were found, but nothing else. He may have

died of asthma instead of being killed by Indians, and wolves may have killed him and devoured his body."

--"TheAncestors&Descendants ofRex Bottorff --HarcourtIA, John Adam Line"

Twice he walked all the way home from New Orleans after going down on a

flatboat. Once he nearly died at Natchez, but plodded on the 1500 mile journey,

overcame his sickness, and was in good condition when he got home.)

the Walborn in-laws

Phyllis J Collins sent to Helen Mattson-Olson who sent to me, excerpts from The Walborn Family compiled by Maxine Bennett, published by Clifford H Bennett 1984, revised 1987. This plagiarizes heavily from that:

"The Walborn family legend tells that the name Walborn had its origin with the birth of a small child found in the woods in the fatherland many years ago. Those rescuing the infant, not knowing his parentage, decided ot give it a name connected with its discovery. So they gave it the name which meant woods-born-- Waldgen Borne, Wald Borne, Waldborn. The latter appears in German baptismal records...To speak of the Walborns is to speak of the Batdorfs, for these two families have been closely related for more than 275 years."

7-greats grandfather Joachim Walborn was born 1629 and was buried 10 Sept 1689 in Mossvach-Biebrich, Germany. His wife, Anna Maria, was born in 1636 and died 30 December 1693, also in Mossvach-Biebrich, Germany. (see Hank Z Jones). Another lists him as dying 12/30/1693 at 57 years of age. Their children:

1.Johann Philipp (b.1659 i.12/21/1674)

2.Maria Clara (confirmed 1677)

3.Elizabetha (confirmed 1680)

4.Martin Jacob (confirmed 1686)

5.Johann Adam -- our grandfather, see below

6-greats grandfather Johann "Hans" Adam Walborn was born 1670 in Mossvach-Biebrich, and married 15 February 1691 Anna Elisabetha Dietz (she had been confirmed in 1681 in Mossvach-Biebrich. This same Bennet Document calls her Feg and Dietz in different places, as Feg born 4/1692 in Idar Rhineland-Pfalz. The Walborn(Walburn) Genealogical History calls her "Feg." Another source calls her

"Dietz." Perhaps Bennet quotes both of these. AFJ writes that "There is no evidence whatever that Anna Elisabetha was a Feg, as has been reported elsewhere in print." He says the source for this confusion is a footnote to an article, "The Registers of Reed's Church" by Frederick S Weiser and Vernon Nelson in The Historical Review of BerksCo VolXXXI No 1 (Winter, 1965-66). Footnote 5 on page 27 begins, "Herman Walborn was a son of Johan Adam Wallborn, who is lilsted as a Hoffman of the Schutzenhof near Wiesbaden in the records tehre. His wife was a daughter of Johannes Feg and wife, who were from Idar." The words "his wife" refer to Herman Walborn, not Johann Adam, but may have perhaps been misunderstood.). Hans was a tenant farmer, living in the Palatinate on land owned by Egydius Sartorius. Church records of the family were found in Wiesbach-Nassau Germany, and three baptismal records were recorded in Weisbaden, obtained by Herman Walborn of St Paris OH in 1969. They are for two of Hans and Anna's daughters "of Idar, Germany."

Like the Batdorfs, they decided for the same reasons to take advantage of Queen Anne's offer to transport them to America. In the summer of 1708, they travelled down the Rhine to Rotterdam, Holland. The trip was long and tedious due to the many stops enroute, and their meager resources were depleted by the time they reached Rotterdam. By the time they reached London they were destitute and entirely dependent upon the government. Ten vessels were loaded with 3000 Germans, including several branches of our family tree-- the Batdorfs, the Walborns, the Fegs, the Rischs...They left England 25 December 1709 and reached New York in June 1710. The trip was not usually six months, but heavy storms delayed the ships causing insufficient food and foul air, which in turn made them easy prey for disease, causing many deaths enroute.

Upon landing they lived in the tents brought with them from England. There they remained until autumn, when 1400 moved 100 miles up the Hudson River to Livingston Manor, New York. This group, including the Batdorfs, Walborns, Fegs, and Rischs, was to manufacture tar and raise hemp to repay the expense of their transportation as grateful subjects. In 1711 Hans volunteered for the expedition against the French and Indians under General Nicholson at Montreal. On July 26 of that year, he was one of the Palatine volunteers in the Annesbury and Queensbury Expedition against Canada.

Our ancestors were among those 150 who, to escape the certainty of famishing due to this unsuccessful experiment, left in the autumn of 1712 for Schoharie, 60 miles northwest. No roads, no horses, but in rough-built sleds they pulled themselves, they arrived three full weeks later. In 1717 he took the Oath of Allegiance After being there 10 years the Walborns (and our Grandfather Sebastian Fisher was in the group!) left, when a defect in their land titles caused 33 families to move again in 1723 to Tulpehocken, about 15 miles west of ReadingPA. In 1741 he was still listed as one of those still living in the settlement. He is listed on the 1754 and 1759 tax lists of BerksCoPA, but the exact date of his death is not known. They were the parents of six children:

1.Andreas David Walborn b.1690 Idar Rhineland-PflazGE. He appears in 1717 in the company of J Conrad Weiser in the Tulpehocken. He was one of the signers of the 16 March 1718 petition of Dauphin Co inhabitants. They lived on the outskirts of the Tulpehocken settlement, attended the Tulpehocken Church and had four sons:

a.Daniel b.1733

b.John Peter Walborn b.1734

c.Major Adam Walborn (2ndPAReg in Revolutionary War, promoted to Lt.

20Jan1776, killed at Paoli 29Sep1777)

d.Samuel Walborn (Revolutionary War soldier, buried in BrownCoOH)

2.Rev Christian Wilhelm Walborn (b.4/1692 d.11Dec1769 HeidelbergTwp LancasterCOPA, buried with his wife in the Tulpehocken Cem. He came to America 1709, Tulpehocken 1723. Reith's Church, aka Zion's Church, was built after 5mo in 1727. Made of crude logs, and the pulpit a large round tree stump, seats of split logs, with a large ammunition vault built underneath the earthen floor, with no fireplace (members warmed themselves at a fire outside), it burned down in the late 1800s. The Walborns attended until 1742 when Moravian doctrine took over the church. The Lutherans and Reformed members then built, in 1743 the Christ Lutheran Church on the west edge of Stouchberg BerksCoPA. Many Walborns are buried in this churchyard, and many Walborns are in the birth and baptismal registries there. A charter member, Christian often served as Supply pastor, though only a lay minister. This is why he is referred to in many records as "Rev Christian." He was naturalized 13 Sept1761, and a very successful farmer on the Walborn homestead. The ancestral home still stands on the western edge of Myerstown, LebanonCoPA.

The Walborns have a "Walborn Reunion Song" that was dedicated at the first Walborn reunion held in 1932 at Lyken's Valley Pennsylvania:

chorus: We're enjoying our reunion, we're enjoying our reunion

We're enjoying our reunion, at good old Christian's home.


1.We come to good old Christian's place to sing our little song

And to show our friends and relatives the place where we belong

We're so happy just to tell you all about him in this song--

For twas good old Christian's home


2.The grove you're in, the ground you're on, was dear old Christian's place

And the spring is overflowing, just go there and have a taste.

Drink and drink and drink until you have your thirst erased,

For twas good old Christian's home.


3.The house and barn are just a half a mile away,

Where you may go and see what we've arranged for you today.

We hope that you'll be pleased with what we've passed along your way

For twas good old Christian's home



4.We want you all to join us in this final verse and say

That you'll be glad to come again just one year from today

For we'll want to meet each other just as happy, bright and gay

For twas good old Christian's home

the Brine in-laws

It may be Catherine's grave beside her son & daughter-in-law's tombstones in Raker Cemetery outside Delta FultonCoOH. No dates are on the stone, but there is written "CatharineBadorff"


4-greats-grandfather John Jacob Batdorff

He was born 5/13/1806 LebanonCo (copied Dec 1971 by Vashti Seaman DAR #480,950 WauseonOH 43567 "Part 2 from Court Records FultonCo O at WauseonOhio contains names of persons listed in Vol.1 deaths, who are given as being born In PA with a few family records") Dauphin CoPA d.7/10/1870 Delta FultonCoOH m.Christina Bush.

Strangely, his tombstone spells the last name "Batdorff," while Christina's (next to his) reminds us she is the wife of Jacob "Badorff," and his mother Catherine's is also spelled "Badorff."
