Descendants of John Nicholas (Peconier) PROCUNIER


7. Margaretha Prakunier PROCUNIER

17 in 1776 census (Elizabeth Hundred), mentioned in father's will asliving in Hagerstown in 1804.

Brenda Rohrer Smith has conflicting documentation on the parentage ofAnna Mary Baumwart. she is either the daughter of Henrick Baumwart andMargaretha Procunier or the sister of Henrick Baumwart. Also one sourceof hers shows that Margaretha Procunier married a Michael Boward whoappears to be the brother to Henrick Baumwart/Boward. I have her marriedto Michael.

I believe we may have a connection
My ancestor Margaretha Procunier bore 1759 the daughter Peter.

Our connection would be
Michael Boward married Margaretha Procunier born 1759.
Michael & Margaretha Boward
Michael & Catherine Kershner
Martin Luther and his second Mary B Dermody
Edward Jacob and his first wife Nellie Starliper
Faith Louise Boward & Franklin Elsworth Shafer JR
Sidney Shafer my husband..

I have very little of Margaretha Bragonier/Procunier at this time except
that her father was named Peter.
She was born in Hagerstown MD (Elizabeth Hundred). She may have diedbefore
I would appreciate any help or leads to who her parents and sibling mayhave
been, where she is buried.
Thank you
I would be happy to share what I have on the Boward from Martin Luther to
Bonnie Shafer

On 1 May 1806, Peter purchased from William Cope, 50 acres in the northpart of Lot 24, Concession 1, Walsingham Twp.5 at the southwest corner ofthe village of St. Williams. He received the relinquishment of dowerrights on this lot from Frances Cope on 12 Mar 1806.

On 25 Mar 1809, Peter Prockunier was among the signers, "Inhabitance ofLong Point" and elsewhere, of a certificate for Christian Troyer "that hehas caused all those to Settle in this province."6 Christian Troyer,formerly of Somerset County, Pennsylvania came to Upper Canada in 1789,settled land in Walsingham Twp., then returned to Pennsylvania onfrequent expeditions to bring settlers to Norfolk, Haldimand, and YorkCounties.

The following by David C. Prockuniar:
On 25 March 1809, Peter Prockunier was among the signers, "Inhabitance ofLong Point" and elsewhere, of a certificate for Christian Troyer "that hehas caused all those to Settle in this Province." Christian Troyer,formerly of Somerset County, Pennsylvania traveled came to Upper Canadain 1789, settled land in Walsingham Twp., then returned to Pennsylvaniaon frequent expeditions to bring settlers to Norfolk, Haldimand, and YorkCounties.

After Peter's son second son Peter Prockunier, III died in 1832 at theage of 36 leaving three young children to be raised by his wife Deborah(Cope) (d\o Conradt Cope and Sarah Sands), Peter Jr. filed for Letters ofAdministration over the son's estate and for the guardianship of grandsonDavid Sands Procunier to be given to the boy's uncle David Procunier.Another son, Adam Procunier was also mentioned in this guardianship.Also there was a mention of a son Peter IV who was just five years old in1832.

NOTE: From the date of his birth and his name, it has been assumed bythis author (David Procuniar) that this Peter was the eldest son of ourPeter Brockunier (Bragonier) SR who as Peter Prakunier, was listed in theAugust 1776 census for Elizabethtown, Maryland, with a son Peter, thenaged 11. (Note that our Peter would have been 11 years old in 1776)Peter and his descendants seem to have preserved the spelling of theirname with a "P" and the "k" sound in the middle, as did many of the otherdescendants of our Peter JR. (Elaine has found none that didn't use "P")Some who preserved the initial "B" did use the "ck" sound in the middle,too.

There is speculation (although not a strong one) that Peter Procunier JRmay have been a son of a Henry Procunier. Peter named his first sonHenry, instead of following the usual custom of those days in naming thefirst son for the father's father (a custom perhaps not followed by PeterJR) The is a referenced suggestion that came in the Georgiana Randallbook, "The Bragonier Family" on page 13. This author does not agree withthis speculation at all. The evidence does not support this speculationat all! Elaine says-- THERE IS NOT A POSSIBILITY THAT PETER JR WAS ASON OF HENRY!!!! HIS BROTHER WAS NAMED HENRY AND HE IS THE ONE THAT WENTTO CANADA WITH HIM. THEY BOTH ARE SONS OF PETER #.I'm very tempted tojust delete this, but won't for now.)

Norfolk County, Ontario, Canada was located on the north shore of LakeErie. Originally known as the Long Point Settlement of Upper Canada, itwas first settled in the 1790s. Norfolk was merged into the ProvincialRegion of Haldimand-Norfolk 200 years later.

Norfolk County consisted of seven townships: Charlotteville, Houghton,Middleton, Townsend, Walsingham, Windham, and Woodhouse -- and until1820, Rainham and Walpole.

Robert Mutrie has added Thumbnail Biographies to his web site (seeselection on our home page for Other Family Links) One thing you willnotice is that R. Robert Mutrie lists our Peter Brockunier SR as PeterProckunier instead of Peter Brockunier SR on his web page. He also refersto Peter Brockunier SR's son (Peter Procunier JR) as Peter Procunier (noJR) This may cause some confusion among our die hard Procuniar\ierBragunier genealogists. I recently sent R. Mutrie a copy of the biblepages from Peter Procunier JR's family bible and it clearly shows thatPeter JR wrote his name in the Bible as Peter Proccunier SR. GordonProcunier (of Canada) decided to refer to Peter Brockunier SR as Peter I,his son as Peter II and Peter JR's son as Peter III. Hopefully this willhelp explain the differences!!

Daniel Brockunier SR 1777-1840
A Thumbnail Biography by David C. Procuniar
Copyright 1997 - All Rights Reserved Last updated: 21 Oct 1998

Daniel Brockunier SR, the son of Peter & Margaret Brockunier SR, born1777 in Washington County Hagerstown, Maryland. Daniel was born on hisparents farm called "Hagers Long Hickory" in Hagerstown, WashingtonCounty Maryland. Daniel was the youngest of nine children. In 1799 Danielmarried someone named Barbara in the First Reformed Church inElizabethtown Maryland. It was thought that this was Barbara Rohrer.However there is a recorded marriage of Daniel Bracunier to BarbaraRohrer on May 28, 1811. Barbara is the daughter of Christian Rohrer, whoupon his death listed his daughter Barbara Bragonier as a beneficiary. Tocomplicate things more, there is no death mentioned for the firstBarbara, nor are there any cemetery records of this first Barbara. Thereis a recorded death of a Barbara Bragonier (d/o David Bragonier) who diedJuly 19, 1811 aged 17 who might be confused with this Barbara ofDaniel’s. It’s possible that Daniel married Barbara Rohrer in 1799, thenfound out the clergy performing the ceremony was not licensed properly,so they married again in May of 1811 to make it legal. It appears thatDaniel and his new bride Barbara were living at the home of Daniel’sfather in 1800, since the census seems to indicate a younger male andfemale in the house at that time. In 1804 Daniel shared in theinheritance of the family plantation, "Hager’s Long Hickory", with hisbrothers, David and Jacob. In 1808 Daniel and Jacob sold their interestsin this property to their older brother, David. Daniel’s wife Barbaraappeared in that deed. In the 1810 census Daniel is given as the head ofthe household in Elizabeth Hundred (Hagerstown), as were his brothers,David and Jacob. In this household were 3 males ae under 10 (Samuel,Daniel and David); 1 male ae 26-45 (Daniel SR ae about 33); 2 females aeunder 10 (Susanna and Salome); 1 female 26-45 (Barbara) and 1 other freeperson. From the location on the census, Daniel seems to have been livingnext door to Jacob Rohrer and near to Frederick Rohrer. In the 1820census for Washington County Maryland 3rd district, Daniel’s householdincluded: 1 male ae under 10 (William ae 8); 2 males ae 10-16 (Daniel JRand David); 1 ae 16-26 (Samuel); 1 ae 45 or over (Daniel SR actually aeabout 43); 1 female ae under 10 (the twin of William); 2 females ae 10-16(Salome and ?? ) [This second female ae 10-16 may not have been anotherdaughter. If Daniel’s wife was not living in 1820, it may have beenhousehold help]; 1 female ae 16-26 (Susanna). With this census record itwould appear that Daniel’s wife Barbara was not living in 1820, or shewas living someplace else. The baptisms for the first five of Daniel’schildren appear in the records of the Zion Reformed Church in Hagerstown.There is one error in these church records which list David as the son ofDavid and Barbara, which should be David, son of Daniel and Barbara, asDavid’s wife was not named Barbara.
