a. Note:   John Brubacher was born in the year 1719, in West Hempfield Township, on their large estate taken up a few years previously. His boyhood days were spent in the employment of his father in cultivating the large farm. He, having somewhat of a roving spirit, resolved to see his father's native country, Germany. In order to raise the necessary funds for such a long journey, his father sent him to Virginia to collect rents and installments due on land previously sold there, but to his great disappointment at his return home, the neighbors had performed the kind act of dissuading his father from letting him go. After the decease of his father the spirit of going to the old country was again troubling the son, and in order to pacify this spirit he left his mother, brothers, and sister and went to the old country to see his deceased father's old homestead. Here he was received with the greatest joy by both young and old. In those days it caused great joy to see the return of children whose parents had moved from their midst to the 'New World'. Some one must have been particularly well pleased to see this young son of 'America' ("am Hannes sei Johney"), as we see. He, after spending a few months in his father's native home, was married to Maria Newcomer (this well pleased party) some time in April, 1750. Soon after their marriage they, in company with his first cousin, Abraham Brubacher, son of Abraham Brubacher, came back to America and settled at Hammer Creek, in Warwick Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Here their sweet and happy life was to be brief, for the Lord called her to His mansions beyond the skies, December 15th, 1750, being the same year of their marriage. After the decease of his wife he was again married. This time the one of his choice was Maria, eldest daughter of Michael Tauner.(Tauner is now spelled by the descended Doner) This marriage took place April 30th, 1751. She was born February 11th 1729, and died June 21st, 1802, aged 73 years, 4 months, and 10 days. John and Maria (Tauner) Brubacher had a numerous family.
