. . . . . . b. Oct 10, 1692 Duhren, Heidelberg, Baden, Palatinate
. . . . . . d. Mar 4, 1761 Reamstown Cemetery
1c) Johann Eberhardt was a baker, as was wife's father, Jost Schwab (name changed to Swope in America).
1d) Immigrated from Leimen to Rotterdam to Philadelphia/Conestoga in Fall 1717.    Why did Eberhardt come to America?
1e) Received a land grant 200 acres May 01 1719. Warrant for William PENN Family to REAM, Eberhard: "Pennsylvania Copied Survey Book, D-82:239."   Pg 477   Pg 478   Org   This is land at and around 15 E. Church St. Reamstown.
1f) Received a land grant 389 acres in Cocalico Township, Lancaster County from son of William Penn in 1724. Increased to 700-900 acres by 1760, when he divided land among sons.
1g) They had 11 children:   Johann Jacob (1713-1777),  Anna Catharina (1716-1803),  Abraham (1718-?)Nicholas (1721-1774),  Johann Eberhardt "John" (1723-1810),  Matthias (1726-1789),  Tobias (1733-1807),  Susanna(1734-?),  Andrew (1737-1813),  Samuel (1739-~1780),  Adam (1741-?)
. . . . . . (Some lists show a 12th child "John Riehm", I think this is confusion with "Johann")
1h) Son Tobias divided his portion of the farm into building lots, sold them, and founded Reamstown. Tobias m.1758 Julianna Keller (1738-1824), children Henry 1759-1840, Barbara Wheeler 1761-1800, John George 1762-1849, Christian 1770-1854, Suszanna 1777-1849, Catherine ?-1807, Anna Marie 1760-1848, Juliana Weitzel 1763-1845, Frederick 1771-1858, George 1804-1860
1i) Daughter Susanna m.1750 Daniel Difft, same Difft as 2c) below.
1j) Vinnie Ream, descendent of Matthias (1726-1789) via her Father, AND descendent of Nicholas and then Abraham via her grand mother. Family tree.
1k)  Son Abraham b.1718 "The Tavern Keeper",
Find-a-grave, had quite a few sons (maybe 14, wife Joanna Marie (Anna) Leinback), many with similar names as his nephews, especially "Abraham" and "Andrew", which are points of potential confusion on many lists. This Abraham b.1718 is not the same as my lineage #3) Abraham further below.
. . . . . We know of at least three of Abraham b.1718 children's names: Abraham Jr. "the Miller" (1746-1824), Andrew Ream (1763- ) m. Barbara Schwartzwaller, and Juliana m. Rupp
. . . . . One of Abraham b.1718 sons was:
. . . . . . Abram (Abraham Jr?) (1746-1824) "the Miller", Find-a-grave, who moved from Reamstown to Fairheld County Ohio in 1798, who settled in Sugar grove Ohio (then Ream's Mill).   See: A genealogical history of the Ream family in Fairfield County, Ohio 1908 pdf   source
. . . . . . | This Abraham b.1746, m. Rosannah, 14 children. six sons and eight daughters, of this number twelve were born in PA.
. . . . . . | This Abraham b.1746, had a son named Andrew (1763-1845), the 'Drummer Boy", adding to the Andrew name confusion. See notes bottom of Norman Bruce Ream
. . . . . . | This Abraham b.1746, had a son named Sampson Ream (1777-1851)   m. Anna Stukey (sister of Judge Joseph Stukey),   13 children
. . . . . . | This Abraham b.1746, had a daughter named Mary Ream Stukey 1793–1857. The Stukey with Reams started here with Sampson & Mary. All original settler families in Ohio Ream's Mill.
. . . . . . | This Abraham b.1746, one example Lineage: Abraham (b1718), son Abraham (b1746), son Absalom (b1785), son Abraham (b1822), son Thomas Abraham (b1848), son Leonidias (b1873).
1l) Son Andrew (1737-1813) was an ancestor of Norman Bruce Ream.   Andrew was a Captain in the Revolutionary War (2nd Company 3rd Batt. PA Militia) Document, he left Lancaster Co.in 1787, with his family of eight sons. He settled in Bedford now Somerset Co., PA, where he died in 1813. Grave Stone with wife Susanna, are buried in the Ream Cemetery at Ursina. The Andrew name is also a point of confusion, because Nicholas had a son Andrew(b.1757), and Abraham also had a son Andrew (b.1763), and others.
1m) A Riehm Family Tree Link that I found during May 2009, accuracy unverified, source is a Rootsweb webpage.   May be a good starting place for those of you who occasionally email me asking about various Ream descendants.


2) Nicholas Riehm
b. 1721 Lancaster County (probably Leacock Township)
d. June 6, 1774 Reamstown, PA. Presumably buried in the Reamstown Cemetery, but no marker.   Find-a-grave
Notes:
2a) Wife #1: Elizabeth Sarah Reiter, b. April 25, 1723 in Neureut, Baden, Germany, d. ~1761, m. April 26, 1743.   She was the daughter of Michael Reiter and Magdalena De Gage.
2b) Nicholas was a weaver, and had little interest in farming.
2c) He sold the land he received from Eberhardt in 1760 to Daniel Difft, bought one of Tobias’s village lots, and built one of first houses in Reamstown.
2d) They had 9 children: Sarah (1744-?), Julianna (1746-?), Johannes (1747-?), Abraham (1747-1817), Jacob (1751-1813), Joseph (1753-?), Tobias (1755-?), Andrew (Andreas) (1757-1833), David (1762-?).
2e) Son Andrew Ream (1757-1833) notes to help avoid name confusion: , Andrew: of Clark County OH resided during the Revolution at Lancaster PA. Was a private in company of Capt. Isaac Adams, Col. Elders Battalion for 13 months (pension #54067). b. 14 Mar 1757 Lancaster; d. 10 Oct 1833 Clark County OH;   m. Mary Zug (1767-1835);   Children:   Susanna (1787-1867) m. George Deaton,   Benjamin b.1789,   John (1792-1867) m. Peggy,   Samuel b.1794,   Mary b.1797,   Andrew Jr. (1797-1867) Photo m. Anna Harner (1804-1868),   Solomon b.1801,   William b.1804,   Eleanor b.1810. Source.
2f) Wife #2: Anna Catharina Hartman, b. ~1727 in Erlington, Earl Twp, PA, m. Aug 15, 1769. There are no records of any Children from this marriage.


3) Abraham Ream
b. Aug 24, 1749 (or 1747) Eberhardt's farm in Lancaster County
d. Aug 1817 His farm in Haines Township, Centre County, PA.   Buried in Tusseyville, PA.
         Abraham's Grave Stone incorrectly says b.1737, it's actually 1749 or 1749, see Dave's written comments Cemetery Notes
               This means that the findagrave.com webpage stone for Abraham Ream (1749-1817) is the actual stone but has the wrong year of birth etched. At least as of my writing this 2017.
               As a matter of fact, the webpage on findagrave.com also has the wrong 'father' for Abraham listed as being Jacob while Nicholas is correct.
               And his DAR record has it listed correctly as 1749.   Ancestor #: A093967. Daughters of the American Revolution, DAR Genealogical Research Databases.
               The grave stone is the accurate stone, and wrong year, but because of the year-of-birth confusion folks research becomes messy quickly.

Notes:
3a) Had 15 children with 2 wives.
3b) Wife #1: Elizabeth Neidig, (1749-1786) Find-a-grave married Sept. 14, 1767, Muddy Creek Reformed Church, Lancaster County.   She was the daughter of Johannes Adam Neidig Find-a-grave and Dorothea Fichtner.

Our Heritage:  
What is our non-American origin? Or, to ask it another way, to which countries in Europe can we trace our ancestry, the answer would probably be something like: "mostly English, with some Scottish and Irish thrown in, and one strong line of German." In short, like most Americans, we are a mixture. One fact that does tie us more closely to Germany is that we know exactly which place in Europe the Riehms lived just before migrating to America. And we do have lots of living "cousins" in that town. We are not able to say the same about the Biggses, the Davidsons, the Haneses, et al. One of my genealogical research goals is to find some of those other villages in Europe.   --- Dave Ream   (April 2001)

I cannot verify any Irish blood in our Ream or Biggs roots. Cassander Hanes (OM's mother) dubbed her Hanes roots as "Scotch Irish." I suspect that that meant that her ancestors came from Northern Ireland, which was then (and still is today) fiercely independent of the Catholics that dominate the rest of Ireland.
The Biggs-Davidson line is all English, except for the Davidson Scots. Note that, with no exceptions, every one of those ancestors was a Protestant, of one denomination or another.   --- Dave Ream   (March 2005)
