     Abigail Cowenhovenor was born in 1722 at Mammouth, New Jersey.1 She married Martin Bartholomew Longstreth, son of Martin Longstreth and Abigail (?), in 1747.1 Abigail Cowenhovenor died after 1778 at Bedford, Pennsylvania.1
     As of 1747,her married name was Longstreth.1 Abigail Cowenhovenor1 was born about 1722 in Mammouth, New Jersey.1 She was baptized on 24 Sep 1769 in
Conococheague Presbyterian Church, Mercersburg, Pennsylvania.1 She died after 1778 at the age of 56 in Bedford Co,
Pennsylvania.1 The surname and/or the parents of Abigail, wife of Martin Longstreth, is still a question of speculation. The
information that the surname is Cowenhovener was found in the archive of Alvin Longstreth, but there were no clues as to
where that information was derived from, or who might have passed it along. Much of the information in Alvin Longstreth's
archives was a result of the research of Lester Holcomb, but this compiler has not been able to locate if Mr. Holcomb
supllied this particular bit of information.
Catherine (Woods) Voight includes Abigail Cowenhovenor in her Woods/Voight family history
(http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:992662&id= I74270652) but no sources were provided in
the www version. Larry Linehan also names Abigail Cowenhovener in his family genealogy of Larry Lee Linehan
(http://www.larry.linehan.com/family/index.htm), and he indicates a babtismal record as the source for the identity of Abigail
Cowenhovenor (24 Sep 1769 Conococheague Presbyterian Church, Mercersburg, Franklin Co, PA). This baptism would
have occurred when Abigail was an adult, approximately 57 years old.
W. David Samuelson noted in an email to this complier (May 2008) that a will for a Peter Van Kouwenhoven (husband of
Patience Daws) that had been purported to document Abigail Kouwenhoven being married to Martin Longstreth, actually
indicates a marriage of Anne Van Kouwenhoven to John Longstreet/Longstraat. This fact is also supported in the

Pennsylvania.1,74 Phillip was also known as Philip Longstreth.1 He was buried in Buried in Family
Cemetery - Rush's Cross Roads, Wayne Twp, Greene Co, Pennsylvania.1,74 He died in Center Twp,
Greene Co, Pennsylvania.1,76 From Historical and Biographical Sketch of the Longstreth Family
Lineage. As signed by Patrick Lytton Varner and obtained from the files of Cornerstone Genealogical
Society, Waynesburg, PA.
"Philip Longstreth was born in Bucks County, Pa in 1749 and lived there until the age of 11 when his
father moved to Cumberland County, Penna. He resided there one year and then went to Bedford
County. He soon had to leave that county because of the unfriendly Indians. The family returned to
Cumberland County where they remained until 1764, when Philip and his father went out in Colonel
Bouquet's regiment under Capt. William Piper, in the campaign to the west, returning on Dec. 27, 1764.
There is a story (unconfirmed) that Philip wanted so much to go to war that he enlisted as a drummer boy
when he was fifteen in 1764. He had his residence in Bedford County from 1755 until 1774 when he
volunteered in Colonel McDonnell's regiment and marched to the Muskingum in Ohio, after which he joined Dunmore and returned home to Bedford County in Feb. 1775 where he lived until 1797 when he
moved to Allegheny County, Maryland. In 1809 he went to Fayette County, Pennsylvania. In 1826 he
came to Greene County, Pennsylvania.
"He served all during the war, enlisting first in June 1776. he received his final discharge in August,
1783 with the rank of second Captain.
"He married Salome Heaton in Bedford County on April 30 1775. Philip Longstreth died in Wayne
Township, Greene County, Penna. on the night of Dec 10-11 1835. His death occurred so near to
midnight that it is uncertain whether it was the 10th or the 11th of the month."
- - - - - -
Captain Philip Longstreth's participation in the Revolutionary war from Bedford Co, Pennsylvania has
been verified by the DAR. DAR application 141060 states Capt. Philip Longstreth "was a Captain in the
Revolutionary Army". Furnished Government with money to help carry on the war, for which was
afterward repaid by the transfer of land in what is now Green Co, PA. A pension was granted him (not
received until after his death) and with his will is accounted for by his executors all on file in Green Co.,
PA.". Also stated in the DAR application that he acted in the capacity of "Private in the Battles of White
Plains Saratoga Monmouth." (quoted from The Longstreth's Home Page produced by Robert Keith
Longstreth).

according to Weller family tree.1,81 From Our Longstreth Lineage 1188 to Present:
John Longstreth was more or less a professional soldier. His revolutionary war pension number was
S23778. He received his pension ($40 per annum) from age 81, until he died at age 91. John was a
veteran of the revolutionary war having served in the "Flying Camp" under Capt. Andrew Hines. He also
served under General Anthony Wayne against the Indians in 1794-95.
John (George) Longstreth is referred to as George Longstreth in the 1916 supplement to The Longstreth
Family Records by Philip W. Longstreth (great grandson of John Longstreth and Margaret Ann George).
It appears that he may have used one name for official purposes, and the other for close or family
relationships. It is not known by this compiler whether his birth name was John George Longstreth,
George John Longstreth, or if "George" was not even part of his birth name.
"John Longstreth, born 1750, Philadelphia, living in 1824 at age of 84 years. He volunteered for service
in the Revolutionary War in 1776 as a private in Capt. Hines Company of Flying Corps. Enlisted again
in 1779 and served as a private in Capt. Rush's Company in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. After the
war he enlisted from Bedford Co, Pennsylvania and served under Capt. Davis, in Col. Davidson's
regiment, also served in 1795 and 1794 under General Wayne. This is from Pennsylvania State Library -

In his Revolutionary War pension aplication (August 28, 1833) Martin Longstreth claims to be 77 years
old, having been born in 1756 in Cumberland County, Pensylvania. The witnesses to his pension
application were Richard Silvers (presumably the husband of his daughter, Ann), George Brown (age
61), and Frederick Stoler. His brother, John Longstreth, and a Hannah Sindledekar were also witnesses.
In his pension application Martin Longstreth claims to have lived all his life in Bedford County,
Pennsylvania except for 4 months as a soldier in the Revolutionary War, two months as an Indian scout
in the local militia, and 2 years living in Indiana. This last fact may be is an that this generation of the
Longstreth's was acquainted with the territories of Ohio and Indiana, and is consistent with the
appearance of Longstreths in the Dayton, Ohio area. Or it may be that Martin was referring to having
lived in the vicinity of Indiana, Indiana County, Pennsylvania, a region of Pennsylvania just north of
Bedford County to where his brother Jeams relocated.1 He began military service in 1776 State of Pennsylvania
Bedford County
On this 28th day of August AD 1833, personally appeared in open court, before Alexander Thomson
Esqr. President and his associates Judges of the Courts of Common Pleas & of said County. Martin
Longstreath resident of Hopewell Township Bedford County and the State of Pennsylvania age seventy
seven years, who being duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath, make the following declaration in
order to obtain the benefit of the act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832. That he entered the service of
the United States under the following named officers, and served as herein stated.
Sometime in the year 1776 he enlisted in the flying camp under Captain Andrew Hines, Lieutenant
MCracken & Ensign Jacobs as he believed. That after his enlistment he was marched from Hancock
Maryland, to Hagerstown, thence by various marches to Philadelphia. He was shortly afterwards
marched up the North River and was encamped a few days previous to the battle & capture of Fort
Washington fourteen miles up the river above the Fort. That on the evening before the battle orders were
received by the company that they should be at the fort early next morning and that in pursuance of said
order they marched all night & next morning were at Fort Lee on the opposite side of the river from Fort
Washington but were prevented from crossing over by a British ship of War, the Roebuck, which sailed
up the river immediately after the battle commenced. That shortly after the capture of Fort Washington
they received intelligence that the British intended to make an attack on them, after which he believes
Genl Washington, Green & Putnam drew out the army to secure the passage by which the British
intended to march to them. Having then been informed that the British General intended to enclose them
between the Hackensack & North rivers they immediately marched from the fort under the command of
Lynn
Applicant recollects seeing General Washington when he arrived at Fort Lee previous to the Capture of Fort Washington. He also recollects having seen Genl Green also Genl Putnum with whom he was well
acquainted.
Some time afterwards applicant was discharged with some others at Philadelphia & returned home.
He was afterwards, he cannot recollect the date, drafted in the militia of Bedford County under
Lieutenant Beatty and served in & about the Town of Bedford as a scout and Indian spy, and on one
occasion went as express from the fort at Bedford to the Fort at ?Wiogaisers? when some of the
inhabitants were killed by the Indians.
He served in the flying camp six months and in the militia two months.
Applicant states he has no discharge having destroyed his discharge immediately after he recd it
believing then that that he never would have any use for it.
Applicant states that he never had any commission, that he lived in Bedford County when he entered the
flying camp and when he was drafted, and has been living in Bedford County ever since, excepting two
years when he was in Indiana. That he was born in the year 1756 in Cumberland County, Penna, but has
not any record of his age.
That Frederick Sloter & can certify as to his character for veracity and the belief of his
services in the neighborhood where he resides.
He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension except the present & declares that his name is
not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.

     Margaret Ann[e] George1 was born on 16 May 1760 in Bedford Co or Cambria Co, Pennsylvania.1,77,86
She died on 18 Feb 1837 at the age of 76 in Deavertown, York Twp, Morgan Co, Ohio.1,87 She was
buried in Camel Light Cemetery in Deavertown, Ohio, and a memorial is in the Methodist Cemetery,
Deavertown, Ohio.1 Margaret lived in Moved from Cambria Co, Pennsylvania to York Twp, Morgan Co,
Ohio about 1813.1,82. The Weller family tree has Bedford Co
as birthplace. A response to an internet query (Longstreth Surname Message Board. Note from Cindy S.)
said the birthplace was Cambria Co. Cambria Co and Bedford Co, Pennsylvania are adjacent to each
other, and, according to the Cambria Co website, (http://www.rootsweb.com/~pacambri/) Cambria Co
was formed in 1804 by taking pieces of three other counties, including some of Bedford county.
"In 1813 Elijah Holcombe, his son John and daughter Achsah Holcombe Pidcock, migrated by oxen
wagon train from New Jersey to Ohio, thru Pennsylvania. Three years later they were followed by sons
Joseph and Jacob. While in Cambria County, Pennsylvania, the Holcombe train fell in with another
group - Margaret Ann George, wife of John Longstreth, and her four sons, Philip, James, Bartholomew
and Michael and a daughter Abigail, who with their respective families were also migrating to Ohio. It is
believed that a Foraker family was with them. They all traveled together to Zanesville, Ohio, there to
cross the Muskingum River. They held Bounty Certificates for land farther west, in the Dayton area.
Resuming their journey, they proceeded as far west as what is now Lancaster and got caught in the mud
of the "flat lands" of Ohio and fearing ague they returned to Zanesville where they met Jonas Deaver,
who led them 18 miles south to what was later to be Deavertown, where they bought land and made their
homes.
Jonas Deaver had a farm on the crest of the hill, 1 1/2 miles south of Deavertown. The Longstreths
bought land down the hill toward the south and the Holcombes farther south and west on a tributary of
Jonathan Creek which flows north to the Muskingum River near Zanesville. The Longstreth family occupied the original purchase of 164 acres until only a few years ago." [From The Longstreth Story, by Lester G. Holcombe (1891-1973), written about 1968].
"In 1778 he (John Longstreth) married Margaret Ann George, daughter of Albright George of Bedford
County, Pennsylvania. She was born May 11, 1760, Pennsylvania, died Feb. 18, 1837 at Deavertown.
Many years later, under the supervision of Mrs. D. V. Rannells of Logan, Ohio, a descendant of James
Longstreth, a stone was erected in the Methodist Cemetery at Deavertown to the memory of Margaret
Ann George Longstreth. A measure of earth was taken from her grave in the new light cemetery and
placed at the foot of the stone in the Methodist Cemetery. She was eulogized as "the Grand Lady of all
the Longstreths." Her daughters, Margaret and Barbara remained in Pennsylvania with their father, and
after his death, it is known that Barbara came to Ohio. And while not proven, it is believed that Margaret
cam also." [From The Longstreth Story, by Lester G. Holcombe (1891-1973), written about 1968].
(Jonas Deaver was a cousin of Levi Deaver, the founder of Deavertown, Morgan Co, Ohio. The Deaver
genealogy can be found on the World Wide Web at http://www.my-ged.com/ellerbec/)
"After the settlement of the Deavers, the next family of prominence to take up their residence in the
township were the Longstreths - Bartholamew, Philip, Michael, James, and their families - about fifteen
in all. They came from Cambria County, Pa. Philip located about one mile and a quarter north of
Deavertown, upon one hundred and sixty acres of wild land. Bartholamew entered one hundred and sixty
acres adjoining his brother's on the east. Michael's location was one mile south of Deavertown. James,
or Squire Longstreth, as he was familiarly known in after years, settled one-half mile west of the village.
Bartholamew lived on the farm where he first settled until his decease. One peculiarity of these brothers
was that while they were reared amid the same influences, they all held different religious convictions.
Bartholamew was a Catholic, and soon after he came to York built a Catholic church, which is said to
have been the second Catholic church erected in this section of Ohio. He secured the services of a priest,
Rev. N. Young, and for many years services were regularly held. The establishment of this church
induced quite an extensive emigration of German Catholics from Cambria County, Pa., who settled in the
immediate vicinity. Among the number was a German by the name of Andrew Gossman.
" In addition to other initial efforts, Bartholamew built a mill on the headwaters of Jonathan Creek. This
mill, though a rude affair, was a great convenience to the early settlers. After his death, which occurred
in 1825, his widow operated the mill, until about 1850. Only two of his children now reside in the
township, Daniel and Bartholamew. Michael died on the place where he settled. Two children, Henry
and Catherine, reside on the old homestead. Philip also died on the farm on which he was the pioneer.
James went to Missouri, where he died." [From History of Morgan County, Ohio by Charles Robertson, Page 521.]
"The Church of the United Brethren in Christ. -This society was organized in 1842 by Rev. William
Davis. The original members were James Longstreth, L. Leach and H. W. Weller, Phillip Longstreth and

     Martin Longstreth married Abigail (?)1 Martin Longstreth was born in 1675 at Yorkshire, England.1 He died in 1727 at Pennsylvania.1
     Martin Longstreth1 was born in 1675 in Yorkshire, England.1,73 He died in 1727 at the age of 52 in Pennsylvania.1,52
He lived in 150 miles west of Philadelphia area in 1769.1 Martin was a Brazier (brass worker), also traveled earning a living
as a tinker.1 Martin immigrated to America from England approximately 1700. He is noted in the Annals of Daniel
Longstreth. From: The Longstreth Family Records, page 31ff
The Longstreth family of Philadelphia trace their descent from one ancestor, Bartholomew Longstreth, who emigrated from
Yorkshire in 1699. There is no doubt, however, that collateral relatives of the same name are living, who are the descendants
of Martin Longstreth, a brother or cousin of Bartholomew, who came to America and died about 1727. This Martin was by
trade a brazier, and occasionally traveled about the country in pursuit of trade; he was familiarly known as "the long tinker,"
being "said to have been seven feet two and a half inches in height."
He had a daughter Elizabeth who married Francis Littlejohn, and died near Philadelphia in 1753, leaving eight children; he
had also a son who signed himself Bartholomew Longstreth, Junr., who in 1769 lived a hundred and fifty miles west of
Philadelphia, and had five children.
Some of Martin Longstreth's descendants moved to Virginia. Daniel Longstreth (4-48) great-grandson of Bartholomew, from
whose extensive memoranda much of the material for this Record is gleaned, writes: "Uncle Isaac (3-10) told me that as the
Virginia troops passed through here on their way to New York, two of them of the name of Longstreth called at
Grandfather's, and that again about 1780 one of them on his return towards his home spent several days with the family. His
brother, as Uncle understood, married and settled in the upper part of New Jersey."
Besides this Martin, there may have been one other of the Longstreth name who came to America, as Daniel Longstreth
mentions that he had "often heard that Bartholomew Longstreth had a brother Philip."
Probable descendants of Martin Longstreth are living in Ohio and farther west. In the search for members of the family,
correspondence was opened with Philip W. Longstreth, Gratiot, O; W. C. Longstreth, Lancaster, O., and Mrs. Mary
Rannells, New Plymouth, O., daughter of G. W. Longstreth. From these it was learned that a Philip Longstreth was born in
Cambria Co, Pa., in 1779, and a Michael Longstreth born in Pennsylvania in 1789; these moved to Ohio early in the
nineteenth century, and no names of their ancestry were known. The name Bartholomew occurs more than once among their
family records, which would suggest the probability of their descent from Bartholomew, Jr., son of Martin. In the
publication, "Heads of Families, First Census, 1790," are given the names of two Marton Longstrechs, John, James, and
Philip Longstrech, in Bedford Co. It is not unlikely that these were sons or grand-sons of Bartholomew, Jr., but as no records
have been found to establish this point, the idea, once entertained, of collecting the records of this branch of Longstreth
name, has been abandoned. (etc.)1

     Christopher Longstroth was born on 28 February 1635 at Studfold, Horton in Ribblesdale, Yorkshire, England.1 He married Elizabeth Greenwood.1 Christopher Longstroth died in March 1699 at Yorkshire, England, at age 64.1 He was buried on 29 March 1699.1
     Christopher Longstroth1 was born on 28 Feb 1635 in Studfold, Horton in Ribblesdale, Yorkshire, England.1 He died
in Mar 1699 at the age of 64 in Yorkshire, England.1,73 He was buried on 29 Mar 1699.1,73. For Christopher to be son of Thomas (William Forester version) he could be born in 1635 (Father born
in 1599, son born in 1679). For Christopher to be son of Isaac (AE Longstreth version) he would probably be born between
1650 and 1660 (Father born in 1629, son born in 1679). The William Forester version has Christopher being the only male
in a family with 8 female daughters - possible but less probable.Tradition says that when Joshua Longstreth (3-63) was in England in 1835, he visited the Heralds' College, and found the
record of the Longstreth coat-of-arms. The line of family having become extinct in England, the right to its use was granted
by the College of Arms to the line of the family in America; a seal bearing the coat-of-arms which he had cut in London has
served as the copy for subsequent dies.
No record is yet known which tells to whom the coat-of-arms was granted, nor proves the American Longstreths to be
descended from those who were entitled to bear the escutcheon. Nor is it certainly known that Sir John Longstrother was of
the same ancestry as the Yorkshire Longstreths; the only authority on which this belief rests is the statement of Whitaker, that
Longstroth Dale probably gave birth to Sir John Longstrother, and that the Longstroths of that Dale were probably his
immediate relatives. But the gap between the medieval Longstroths and the present family has not been spanned by any
bridge of records.
The American Longstreths may be collateral descendants in this same family, but whatever right they have to armorial
bearings rests solely on the permission granted, according to tradition, to Joshua Longstreth, as they have not, according to
the requirement of heraldry, established a pedigree at the College of Arms. Elizabeth Greenwood and Christopher Longstroth
were married on 29 Oct 1671 in Giggleswick, Yorkshire, England.1.1
