1). THE EARLIEST ULRICHS From unpulished information supplied in July 1980 by F r e d E. Ullery. His sources are unknown. This informatio n , i n turn, was in the possession of James D. Boor, Box 2 03 , R. D. 1, New Enterprise, PA 16664. There are many spelling variants which evolved from the o r i ginal German Ulrich. 2 In America there are two known s tr ain s of Ulricks, both strains using different spellin g var iant s. We are descended from the earlier strain whos e immi gran t forefathers were Stephen I b c 1675 John an d one u nname d possibly George . Reputedly they were phys ically s hort a nd stout and married three tall English sis ters. Pos sibly , they married in the English seaman area o f Chincote aque I sland, where, according to on tradition , 3they raise d ponie s rounded up small wild horses know n as Chincoteaq ue ponie s , which they swam to the mainla nd and sold. 2 The first known acquistions by the Ulrichs were in the a r e a of the present Adams Co., PA. The earliest records o f t ha t area were recorded in Chester Co. The county statu r o f th at part of Adams county successively changedto L anca ste r Co. on 14 Oct 1728 to York Co. on 14 Oct 1748 and t o Ad ams Co. in 1800. Probably, it was in the Adams County area that Immigran t J o hn Ulrich, while hunting wild turkeys, fell down a pr ecip ic e and was fatally impaled on a tree snag. It has be en wr itt en that an 3Eldrick 2 probably Stephen Ulrich II an d a 3St udsman 2 probably Jacob Stutzman, Sr. were t wo o f the orga nizers of the Little Conewago Congregation , from ed about 17 38 near Hanover, PA. Therefore, the prev alent m igrations o f the Ulrichs, and associated German Ba ptist fa milies, wer e sequentually to the Conacocheaque C reek Vall ey of the pr esent Franklin Co. PA, and the prese nt Washing ton Co. MD t o the Morrison1s Cove area of th e originall y large Bedfor d Co. PA to the southwestern an d western ce ntral areas o f Ohio, especially Montgomety Co . and, to th e central an d northern areas of Indiana. NO. 392 STEPHEN ULRICH I From unpulished information supplie d i n J uly 1980 by Fred E. Ullery. His sources are unknown . Th is i nformation, in turn, was in the possession of Jam es D . Boor , Box 203, R.D. 1, New Enterprise, PA 16664. b c 16 80 Germ any. He once owned land in what is now Adams Co. PA. THE ULRICK CHILDREN 1. Stephen II b c1710 d c1784 m 1 Elizabeth m 2 Hannah Stutzman a widow. 2. Samuel b 1716 . He reputedly was a German Baptist mini s t er of 3fluent oratory & great eloquence. 2 3 He had a h ug e p hysique, weighing upwards of 400 lbs. He was still l ivi ng a s a bachelor in PA at age 86 yrs. 3. David b 16 Mar 1717 ? By 1752, Stephen Jr. had moved about 60 miles southw e s t t o Frederick County, Maryland. This was early. Hag er s t ow n wouldn t be platted for another ten years, an d th e w il der ness was mostly untouched. He bought 235 a cre s lat er called Good Neighbor from a very early set tle r in th e region , Hans Waggoner. A Daniel Ulrich boug ht 8 6. Dani el was probably Stephen s brother. This lan d is ei ght or n ine mile s west of today s Hagerstown, nea r the pr esen t ha mlet of Cl ear Springs on Hwy 40. Steph en live d here u nti l he died . His brother John lived th ere too . This wa s t he genuin e frontier, not more tha n a mile o r so from t h e mountains t hat held back settle rs for anot her 20 year s . The next year , George Washing ton age 21 passed a f e w miles west on hi s way to parl ey with th e French on beh al f of the Virginia g overnor the Frenc h were encroachin g o n western lands .
