From my book "Line of Descent George Roger Gilbert", Part III:

Great - Great - Great - Great - Grandparents

120. William Gunderman/Counterman & 121. Frances ___________ -

( Peter Gunderman, 60; William H. Gunderman, 30; Jane Elizabeth Gunderman, 15; Loretta DeWitt, 07; Mildred Barber, 03; George Roger Gilbert, 01) - The search for William and Frances Gunderman has produced nothing certain but their names to date. That information comes from the death certificate of their son Peter Gunderman.

Even their names are somewhat suspect as the informant at the time of death was Dr. F. W. Best and not a family member. I am assuming he asked some family member about the parents of Peter Gunderman. Peter's daughter, with whom he had been living, passed away three weeks before Peter. Most of his children survived him and it is likely one of them gave the names of their parents to the doctor. I have always believed Peter's father's name was William Gunderman and that is where my search began.

I have spent many hours and collected much information in search of the parents of Peter Gunderman. In Sussex County, NJ in the late 1700's and early 1800's there were many men named William Gunderman as well as many named Peter Gunderman. In addition alternate spellings of the name Gunderman can be found such as Countryman, Counterman, Gunterman and more. One clue that might prove to be very helpful is the 1880 Census of Peter Gunderman, son of William and Frances Gunderman. It states that his father was born in England and his mother in New Jersey.

Great - Great - Great - Grandfather

60. Peter Gunderman/Counterman -( William H. Gunderman, 30.; Jane Elizabeth Gunderman, 15; Loretta DeWitt, 07; Mildred Barber, 03; George Roger Gilbert, 01) - b. September 2, 1813 ^ in Stillwater, Sussex Co., NJ, he was the son of William and Frances ____?____ Gunderman. On October 8, 1836 Peter married Sarah Sickles/Stickles who was born April 14, 1814 in Hardwick, Sussex Co., NJ. Her mother was Hannah (Sickles ?) Swick but her father is unknown to me at this time.

My notes relate my discovery of the date of marriage between Peter "Counterman" and Sarah "Stickles".

"Monday, April 11, 1977

Home for Easter Vacation. Went to the Sussex County "Homestead" Library. The reference librarian gave me a two page mimeo sheet called "Genealogical Research in Sussex County" which I zeroxed and will place in the folder at the back of this volume.

From this list of things genealogical that are available in the library, I asked for and looked through "Sussex County Marriages, 1795 to 1853".

This list is a copy of a copy of the list in the Sussex County Clerk's office. From it I discovered:

*8 Oct. 1836 - Counterman, Peter (Stillwater) to Sarah Stickles

*8 Oct. 1836 -ÊStickles, Sarah (Hardwick) to Peter Counterman

17 Apr. 1810 - Gunterman, Peter to Polley Christey

23 Dec. 1813 - Gunderman, Coonrod to Elizabeth Gardner

11 Aug. 1829 - Gunteryman, William (Frankford) to Mary Simmons

17 Feb. 1835 - Gunderman, William to Julia Ann Kirkhuff

Both Peter and Sarah had probably reached the age of 22 when this marriage occurred. The marriage appeared twice in the alphabetical list, once with the C's and once with the S's. Both entries contained the same spelling of the names Counterman and Stickles. Present at that time in that area were families whose name was Sickles and families whose name was Stickles. At her death in 1890, Peter survived and probably gave this information found on her death certificate: Name of Deceased Sarah Sickles Gunderman, and Father's Name ? Sickles, and Mother's Name Hannah Sickles Swick.

Peter and Sarah Gunderman were parents to (1). a male - b. perhaps 1839, d. perhaps as a baby and before 1850 (2) William H. - b. 1840/1 - d.June 23, 1909 m. Susanna Emery - b. Aug. 7, 1840 - d. Jan. 22, 1909 (3) Austin - b. 1840 m. Matilda (possibly sister to brother Henry's wife) (4) Hannah - b. 1843 - d. Feb. 18, 1897 m. Samuel H. Hotaling -b. 1834 - d. July 15, 1897 (5) Bowdewine Roy -b. Sept. 8,1848 - d. May 31, 1925 m. Susan Auter - b. June 20, 1854 - d. Dec. 7, 1919 (6) Jacob Morris - b. 1850 - m. July 3,1871, Loretta Jane Emery - b. Sept. 30, 1852 (7) Ellen Marie - b. June 3,1854 - m. August 17, 1872 , Oliver Emery - b. May 20, 1850 - d. May 6,1904 (8) Henry H. - b. 1856 - Letters of administration on Feb. 1, 1937 m. Ethelina Lott b. 1856 - d. Nov. 12, 1926

They lived in Stillwater, Layton and Montague in Sussex Co., NJ and moved around 1869 to the "Acre", an ethnic settlement within Port Jervis, NY and then to Sparrowbush, NY, a small suburb of Port Jervis located to the Northwest along Rt. 97.

It was in Sparrowbush on November 2, 1890 that Sarah Gunderman died and she was buried in Pine Hill Cemetery in a plot purchased earlier by Peter. He joined her in that plot after his death on March 9, 1897, three weeks after his oldest daughter, Hannah, with whom he was living, had been laid to rest there.

April 5, 1972 , Wednesday

I decided to talk to Mrs. Kent this morning. Went to her house on Brook Road in Sparrowbush, New York. No one answered the door.

When I returned home I called Gray's Funeral Home to see who I might contact to find information about burials in Pine Hill Cemetery in Sparrowbush. Was told to contact Orien Linkey of Sparrowbush 856-5665. Called and was told he was in Florida. I was told to call Walter Bloomer, Jr., Darrough Road, Sparrowbush, New York- 856-5552. When I called his wife told me to call back at noon. Called him and then went to his house to get map containing plots and names of people who bought each plot. I went to the cemetery to check.

Peter Gunderman owned three plots. He sold one to S. Perigo. Perhaps he sold a part of another one to Oliver Emery, his son-in-law, because Oliver Emery owned a part of the plot in which are interred Peter and Sarah Gunderman. The plot in which Charles DeWitt, Nana and Frank Delamarter and I think Alva DeWitt are buried was owned by Peter Gunderman. All three plots are next to each other.

Wednesday, July 28, 1993

Have been home to Port Jervis, NY since yesterday. Cousin, Marion Mac Tavish there since Sunday last.

Mom told me that she had obtained the name of the person who was most knowledgeable about the Pine Hill Cemetery in Sparrowbush, NY. It is Wilma Sayer Wilder, a cousin of Francis (Hoppy) May, wife of Paul Wilder, and my sister's classmate.

I called her at 856 -7417. She told me that the only information available on burials was to whom the plots were sold. No records other than that were kept. She said that Grandma Patterson sold the lots and never cared what people did from time of sale on.

I found out that Peter Gunderman owned three lots, #14, #11, and #156. He sold lot #14 to S. Perrigo. Oliver Emery also owned a lot. I didn't get that number. As to who is and where these ancestors are buried, I believe I have come to a dead end.

I have spent many hours and collected much information while attempting to locate the parents of Peter Gunderman. In Sussex County, NJ in the late 1700's and early 1800's there were many men named William Gunderman as well as many named Peter Gunderman.

I am certain that the Stillwater - Peter Gunderman, shown above in the 1840 Sussex County Census, is my 3 - great - grandfather even though his wife's age appears to be incorrect. That error could have occurred at the taking of the census or when I transcribed it to my notes. She would have been 25 in 1840. An additional concern is that there were two sons under 5 in 1840. However, in all future censuses until her death, Sarah's mother Hannah Swick is living with them and would be the older woman in this census. Also, Peter was living in Stillwater at the time of his marriage, Oct. 8, 1836.

Which of the William Gundermans shown in the 1830 and 1840 censuses could be his father is another story.

In correspondences with Mrs. Sheryl Gunderman Robinson of Elmira, I discovered that the 1830 Frankford township William Gunderman, jr. and wife Mary and his brother Peter and wife Sarah moved to Chemung, Co. in 1832/33.

Friday, April 29, 1977

Received from Mrs. Sheryl Gunderman Robinson an answer to my letter. New Information contained in the letter is as follows:

"in 1833, the Frankford Twp. William Gunderman, Jr., wife Mary and William's brother Peter and wife, Sarah, moved to Chemung Co., N.Y. (then part of Tioga Co.) and bought a tract of land in Baldwin Twp. This is recorded in the TIOGA DEED BOOK at the Chemung county Court House. The date for this purchase is Nov. 28, 1833. In this deed Wm. Gunterman is referred to as Wm. Gunterman, Jr. and Peter is also mentioned. Peter's family was as follows: (according to info from Wills Chemung Co. Surrogates Court)

wife - Sarah

Children - John, Margaret, Catherine, Phebe, Barbary Ann, William (descendants living in Johnson City and Binghamton), Hannah.

Peter died- August 1, 1837 (Sorry).

National Archives

Bounty land application 11/12/1855 of Mary Gunterman of Chemung Co., New York aged 64 (so born 1791 as Mary Perry ) states that William Gunterman now deceased was a private in Militia which served at Sandy Hook 1814 (war of 1812) entering service at Newton, N.J., Sept. 1814 as a substitue for Phillip Simmons, serving 3 mo. "at time called Wm. Gunterman, Jr.""married at the Baptist Church at Frankford, New Jersey 6/22/1817 by the Rev. W. Hall""William died in Chemung Co., Sept. 2, 1835 and still Mary remains a widow.'

But beyond the fact that that William Gunderman, Jr. cannot be father to Peter, my 3-great-grandfather, the search for Peter's father becomes a mind boggling puzzle. After many correspondences with Mrs. Robinson we could not seemed to come any closer to a solution. Marriages between widowed and widower, marriages between son and daughter of widowed and widower, numerous children named William whose brothers were named Peter and much more make this tale one to be told later in this book.

The facts that I do know about Peter Gunderman come mostly from the Federal Census. In 1850, the census began naming all inhabitants of a dwelling instead of just the head of the household.

In 1860 Peter and his family were living in Layton, Wantage Township, Sussex County, NJ. By 1870 they had moved to Port Jervis and were living on Railroad Ave. near Third Street.

Wednesday, August 30, 1971 Port Jervis City Directories

Yesterday and today at the Port Jervis, New York, Library I copied the following information from the Port Jervis City Directories.

The 1897 directory had title page which read in part:

Breed's Publishing Company's Dirctory of Port Jervis, Monticello and Milford and stations on the line of the Port Jervis, Monticello and New York R. R. from Port Jervis to Monticello.

Ê Ê Ê Ê ÊÊGunderman, William, Brakeman, h 20 Second

According to the 1850, 1860 and 1870 cenuses his year of birth would be 1815. Concluding he or his wife would be most accurately aware of their ages in early or middle age I am inclined to believe the 1815 birth year as most likely true for both Peter and Sarah. In the final two census reports, 1875 and 1880, Peter and Sarah have aged 7 years from 1870 to 1875 and then did not age at all from 1875 to 1880.

In 1880 Peter and Sarah lived in the "Acre" probably with their son, William H. Gunderman and his family.

In 1875 it is most likely all those seen in the accompanying census except the Bowdewine family were living in the same house.

Peter Gunderman's wife Sarah died November 2, 1890 at 9 PM from a stroke and was buried November 5, 1890 in the Pine HIll Cemetery plot purchased by Peter Gunderman. An infant grandson, Peter DeWitt, was already buried there.

Peter Gunderman's daughter Hannah and husband Samuel H. Hotaling came to live with him some time after his wife's death. On Feb. 18, 1897 Hannah Hotaling passed away and three weeks later, March 9, 1897, Peter Gunderman died. Both Hannah Hotaling and Peter were buried in the plot with Sarah. Later other members of the family joined them.

Great - Great - Great - Grandmother

61. Sarah Sickles/Stickles - ( William H. Gunderman, 30; Jane Elizabeth Gunderman, 15; Loretta DeWitt, 07; Mildred Barber, 03; George Roger Gilbert, 01) - born April 14, 1814/5 the daughter of ____?______ Sickles/Stickles and Hannah Sickles Swick in Hardwick, Sussex County, NJ. She married October 8, 1836, Peter Counterman/Gunderman, of Stillwater, Sussex County, NJ, son of William and Frances ___?____ Counterman/Gunderman, born September 2, 1814/5 died March 9, 1897. Sarah died November 2, 1890 in Port Jervis, NY and is buried in the Pine Hill Cemetery, Sparrowbush, NY, next to Peter, her husband. They were the parents of seven children that lived and perhaps 2 that died in infancy.

In all the census reports that I have which contain Sarah, her mother, Hannah Swick, can be found living with Peter and Sarah until she died in 1864 at the age of 80. The first of these censuses is the 1830 census at which time Hannah was about 47 years old. Whether Hannah's maiden name was Sickles, or she outlived Mr. Sickles I have been unable to ascertain. Although the search by me to find Sarah's father has not been as extensive as the search for her father-in-law, it has ended in a similar result. I do not know who he was!

I know little about Sarah Sickles Gunderman other than the history she shares with her husband, Peter. She shares the fate of most of my female relatives, little if any information to be found concerning solely herself.

That information which is unique unto Sarah Sickles, namely this newspaper article and her death certificate, follows. Then comes a listing of the children of Peter and Sarah (Sickles) Gunderman.
