The Descendants of Peter G. & Mary A. Schertz
a supplement to the Schertz Family History

Our European Amish Heritage

The Amish are direct descendants of the Swiss Brethern (also called the Swiss Anabaptists) of the sixteenth century and were among the early German-speaking settlers in Pennsylvania. Swiss Anabaptists had its origins in the reforms of 1525 and advocated a free and voluntary church apart from the functions of the state.

The Amish People emerged as a separate group 170 years later (from 1693-1697) when the Swiss elder Jacob Amman introduced stringent reforms among the Swiss (Mennonites) especially in the Alsace region. His reforms yielded a more simple and severely disciplined community life including the practice of social avoidance (also called shunning or meidung) of excommunicated members.

The Amish people came to the New World as part of a much larger movement of Swiss and Palatine German-speaking people. The reasons for their immigration were several. Religious wars had devastated their lands and their religious beliefs were not tolerated by state churches. Although the Amish were largely of Swiss origin, many of them lived in Alsace or the Palatinate before coming to America. Although they were highly valued as skillful and productive farmers, they were not given legal religious status and thus could not own land.

The Anabaptists were considered a threat because they refused to serve in the military, take oaths, or baptize infants, and were punished in many ways. Many of the Swiss Brethern fled to South Germany, to Alsace (today in France), and some came up the Rhine River to the Netherlands, and then to the New World. Most lived outside of Switzerland before they came to America.

Emigration to America

The Amish or Amish related immigrants came to America as European peasants who were, in one way or another, denied religious freedom and civil rights in their homeland. The exact year when the first Amish came to the new world remains unknown. The Amish did not formalize the movement of their members, and as a persecuted group they not keep formal records.

The family names which are common to the first large immigration period (the eighteenth century, from 1727 to 1770), are distinct from those in the second wave of immigration (the nineteenth century, from about 1815 to 1860) with some exceptions. The second wave, which included both Peter G. Schertz' and Maria A. Augspurger's families, came from Alsace, Lorraine, Monterbeliard, Baden, Bavaria, Waldeck, Hesse-Darmstadt, and the Palatinate. They formed communities in Butler, Stark, Wayne and Fulton counties in Ohio; Adams, Allen, and Daviess counties in Indiana; McLean, Woodford and Tazewell counties in Illinois; and Henry and Washington counties in Iowa. The first period of immigration brought an estimated 500 people in contrast to the second that consisted of probably three thousand Amish people. Little is known about the journeys of the Amish people in their coming to America.

After the War of 1812 or in more general terms, from 1820 to 1850 a new wave of Amish immigrants came to America, generally spoken of as the later immigrants. A great number of these came to port in Philadelphia, some to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to be aided by their Brethern to move westward via Somerset County which was the "Gateway" to the west.

The early communities were made up of clusters of families, most of whom were related by kinship ties. There was no overall or master plan of settlement. Strong family leadership seems to have been typical of early leadership patterns. The strength of the Amish people today is represented in three states, as approximately 75% of the estimated 90,000 in population is located in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Indiana.

The First Amish Communities in America

PENNSYLVANIA - The first established Amish church in America was in Upper Bern Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, which had its beginning as early as 1737. The first disaster to befall these people was the Indian Massacre in 1757 which left them in doubt as to what should be done; whether to relocate or to try to make peace with the Indians. The later seem doubtful due to the French and Indian War.

OHIO - The Fairfield County, Ohio Amish settlement was founded between 1830 and 1840 mostly by families from Mifflin County, and a few families from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. By 1840 there were one hundred Amish families living in Wayne County, Ohio.

The Mennonite Settlement in Butler County was the third of the Amish branch of the Mennonite Church in Ohio. In 1819 the original group of six Amish Mennonite families formed a settlement. Christian Augspurger (1782-1848) stands out as the foremost pioneer and leader of the small group. They came from Alsace Lorain, a region which passed back and forth between Germany and France. Although a part of France at that time, its people clung to their German language and customs.

The Amish Mennonites were firm believers in strict religious standards and formed a small congregation as soon as they were settled in Butler County. The Hessian immigrants who joined the settlement were also Mennonites. The newcomers were accepted into the congregation, although they had not been connected with the Amish branch in their native German state of Hesse.

The Hessian Mennonites differed from the original Amish group. They were accustomed to less discipline in worship and resented the austere Amish dress code. Two churches were eventually formed in 1835, each working independently of the other. The congregations were known as the Augspurger Church and the Hessian Church. In the beginning, the former, despite its strictness, was the stronger of the two. Changing attitudes concerning discipline and intermarriage with the Hessian families brought about a decline in membership of the Augspurger Church.

Butler County, Ohio was a Mennonite settlement, most families stayed a year or so to earn enough money to move on to Indiana or Illinois. In the settlement, farming was a way of life. Each farm was self-sustaining. And yet this colony contributed to the shaping of America with its own distinctive character.

ILLINOIS - By 1850 the fastest growing and largest Amish Community was in McLean County, Illinois. Here there was a vast range of open prairie country of cheap land, which was ideal for the number of late immigrants to settle. This flourishing country caught the attention of church leaders and groups from other settlements in Ohio, Indiana, and Western Pennsylvania.

In 1851 Jonathan Yoder moved his family to McLean County, Illinois and were soon joined by a dozen or more Amish families from Butler County, Ohio who were later immigrants and had settled there between 1820 and 1850. This movement most likely included the Schertz and Augspurger families.

They settled in the adjoining counties of Tazewell and Woodford, so by the middle of the 1850's the settlement consisted of five church districts and the largest Amish settlement in America. But this was short lived due to the lack of discipline and different church doctrines of these later immigrants. There were already considerable differences between the congregations in the east and those of Indiana and Illinois. Therefore, the dissension which was experienced in the eastern states after the middle of the nineteenth century had their roots in Illinois.

The First Amish Communities in America

The dissension of the 1850's to 1877 resulted in two classes of Amish, the progressive group was afterwards, generally known as Church Amish because they built church houses to hold meetings in. Later they became better known as Amish Mennonites, and was the denomination that Peter G. and Maria A. Schertz belonged to. Only about 40% of the 160 Amish and Amish related immigrant families' children grew up to remain Amish or to raise an Amish family.

Although this publication primarily traces the Schertz family line, and specifically that of Peter G. Schertz (1826-1891), special note needs to be made of the Augspurger influence on that line. The Schertz family upon coming to America were primarily farmers. Peter's wife, Maria "Mary" A. Augspurger (1834-1911), came from a very prominent group of immigrants that were both farmers and leaders in the religious community in America. The patriarch of the Augspurger Family was Christian Augspurger (1782-1848). Mary's grandfather, the Reverend Jacob Augspurger (1786-1846), was one of the first Mennonite ministers in Butler County, Ohio; and was ordained a Bishop in the church in 1830. He was the second cousin of Christian Augspurger, and both of the those family lines had numerous other sons who were prominent ministers in both the Amish Mennonite and Hessian Mennonite (Apostolic Mennonite Society) branches of the church.

Christian Augspurger was a prominent farmer in France and managed several large farms there. In Strasbourg, the 500 acre farm that he managed was one of the finest in France. It was one of his most prosperous farms and attracted the attention of royalty and army generals who frequently visited there. This led to Christian being invited to Paris to introduce his style of farming. This ultimately led to his being awarded the French Legion of Honor Medal (abt 1818), which is still in the possession of his descendants.

No list of distinguished persons emanating from the Augspurger family would be complete without mentioning Christian Augspurger's granddaughter, Otelia Augspurger Compton and her family. She was the daughter of Samuel and Eliza Holly Augspurger, and married Elias Compton, a Presbyterian minister. Her four children were all born in Wooster, Ohio and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wooster College. They worked summers on the family farm in Butler County, Ohio. This family is said collectively to hold more honorary degrees than any other American family. They were often called the "first family of American education".

Karl Taylor Compton (1887-1954), the oldest son, was a physicist who did research in atomic energy. In 1946, he was head of the group that evaluated the Bikini atomic bomb tests. He taught physics at Princeton, and served as President of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1930-1949.

Wilson Martingale Compton (1890-1967), the second son, had a degree in law. Always interested in forestry, in 1918 he began 26 years of service as Secretary and General Manager of the National Lumber Manufactures Association. He was then President of Washington State College, and then headed the International Information Administration in charge of the Voice of America.

Arthur Holly Compton (1892-1962), the youngest son, was co-winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics (1927). His discovery, called the "Compton Effect", proved the quantum theory. He worked with one of the groups in developing the atomic bomb, invented a gyroscopic airplane control, taught physics at two Universities, and was Chancellor of Washington University in St. Louis from 1945 to 1953.

Mary Elisa Compton (1897-1994), the youngest child, worked with her husband, Dr. C. Herbert Rice, as a missionary team in India. Dr. Rice was President of the University of Punjab. Mary was active in the community and served on the Board of Directors of many organizations and two colleges.
