I’ve always been somewhat fascinated with my Beery relatives.  All of my feelings for them came from my father.  I never knew them ... they passed on before I was born.

My father had an unhappy early childhood.  He was born in 1919, so the impact of the great depression of the early 1930’s made a big impression on him.  Times were bad for so many ... food, clothing and shelter were scarce ... and the dusty winds blew terribly during the hot, dry summers of Kansas and Oklahoma in the “dust bowl” days.  His mother (Ruth Estelle Beery) had been his “rock”.  She seemed to be the only good thing in his life at the time and she passed away in 1932 at the depths of the depression..  He loved her very much.

But he had his Beery grandparents to nurture him.  He remembered some of the most pleasurable times of his life were the visits to his grandparents home as a youngster of 4, 5 and 6 years old in Geuda Springs, Kansas.  His grandfather owned a general store and he remembers how the food smelled to him.  The coffee, sausages, cookies, baked breads, etc.   His grandmother would bake fresh bread every weekend and he could have thick slices with butter and homemade jellies and jams.

As he grew, his grandfather taught him to be a good man, to be responsible for his family, to find a good woman and cherish her as his wife.  His grandfather became his ideal role model for what a man should be.

I owe the Beery’s much because of how they helped my dad.  He became a great success in life and family and passed on the wonderful traits he learned to his own children.

The Beery family originated in Berne, one of the German-speaking cantons of Switzerland, where the name is spelled Bieri. This Bernese family name has been mentioned in documents of Switzerland since long before the Reformation period of the early 1500’s. The home region o£ the Bieri family was in the remote rural section of Berne between the flat lands and the Alps, called “Mennonite Corner” by some Bernese historians. The eight townships of which Bieri folk were citizens long ago (with what is called home right or right of citizenship) were Buchholterberg, Langnau, Lauperswil, Schangnau, Signau, and Trachselwald of the Emmenthal (noted today for it’s cheese), Darstetten in the Simmenthal, and Pohlern in the Thun district.


Berne has been a “melting pot.” Celtic people, with mostly a Roman Culture, and remainders of still older populations of other extractions, were living in Berne when the Allemanni, a Germanic people, settled there early in the fifth century A.D. The culture and language of Berne have been Allemannic for centuries, but from the racial point of view, typical Germanic features are rather rare in Bernese territory. This melting pot produced a stubbornly independent people with a characteristic self-confidence which has served to fortify the individual industriousness.


All Bieri’s (Beery’s) no doubt have a common root as offspring of one Bieri, believed to be a man named Peter who was first called Bieri in fun, for a nickname (derived from Pierre, the French for his name, with the Swiss diminutive “I” added like the English “Y” in Petey). The name remained and became the Bernese surname Bieri. Many Swiss surnames those derived from personal names are the oldest. The Bieri family name does not come from the name of the beverage, beer (bier in German). Beer was unknown in Switzerland before the end of the Seventeenth century.

Many variations in spelling the family name are found in the old records, both in Switzerland and in America. In the seventeenth century in the state of Berne, grade school was already compulsory, but, of the “three R’s” usually only reading was taught. Many people learned writing from private instruction, and some farmer folk were able to write a few words and, of course, their names, as early as the seventeenth century. But most of the records were written by ministers or clerks who wrote “following the ear,” and sometimes very carelessly. Several spellings might be used in the same account of one person.


The same given names were used in all of the old-time families, mostly Biblical names such as Abraham, Daniel, Peter, John, Jacob, and Samuel, or old saints’ names from Catholic times in Switzerland, as Barbara Margaret, Nicholas, Caspar. Old records of Bieri’s in the canton of Berne include Hans (John), Peter, Caspar, Claus (Nicholas), Daniel, Ulli (Ulrich), Isaac, Barbara, Trini (Catherine), Margrieta. Especially in a remote rural district such as the home region of the Bieri family, in speaking a person’s name the family name was said first and the Christian name second, as Bieri Claus or Bieri Hans.


So-called family coats-of-arms were a purely personal matter in Switzerland, except in some cities where they belonged more or less to the standard of living and were in some way controlled by authorities. In many regions the use of coats-of-arms was never popular. Mennonites did not care for them, considering them worldly.

Nearly four years ago I decided to bring the 1911 Beery History up to date by adding another four generations. It seemed so simple a job but soon became a major task. Each family called for an explanation of who they were, this led to early history research, then research int. other early families of the community who were so closely interwoven with the Beery’s. Many letters had to be sent, some not answered. The early ancestor stories have to be condensed from the 1957 Beery History with many thanks to Judith Beery Garber, the author, who let me copy from her book and has given advice, help and encouragement along the way.


The story of Page County is important in this bi-Centennial year of 1976. The early arrivals came from Adams County, Ind. in the year 1856. The families I know of were Peter Beery, who settled where Willard Blessing lives south of Shambaugh and William Konkel, who settled where Lowell Davison lives on highway 71 south of Shambaugh. The community as it grew up through the years ,was the town of Shambaugh and the Butler school with Butler cemetery beside it.  In 1862 the Joseph L. Beery family came to Page County and settled in East River Township first place east of the Kenneth Williams farm. In 1864 the Goods, Hornings and Hoffmans came establishing the Mennonite church.  Shambaugh became a center for these plain dressed, black broad-brimmed hat and farming people. 1867 brought the Abraham Huddle family, Mrs. Huddle was a sister of Peter Beery, they settled near him on the present Arnold Brown farm.  Also in this wagon train of eight was Magdalene Hamm Beery, the widow of Daniel B. Beery, brother of Peter Beery and Mary Huddle,  She settled east of the Butler cemetery nearer highway 71.  So the years have passed and many descendants of these people still live in the Shambaugh and Clarinda area with many different names. Many migrated to other places and made settlements, some staying, some moving on such as Frontier Co., Nebr., places in Colorado, Idaho and California,  Also Oregon and Washington.


I call this the Page County Beery’s as there needed to be a special point to work from, there are connections who never lived near Page Co. but their interest has made them welcome in this book.


Much of the Page County information, especially the four Townships around Shambaugh, are general taking int. consideration the change of times.  Such as the Fulk farm north of Shambaugh.  In earlier years it was Shambaugh Post Office, Shambaugh telephone, Linn Point grade school and Clarinda High School. Today it has a Clarinda address, Clarinda telephone,  South Page School, grade at Braddyville and High School at College Springs.  Other families have the same changes so their information is as it was at the time they lived it.  I’ve used section numbers on the map to place the families since “near” Shambaugh or Clarinda takes in a considerable amount of territory.


This book could not have been done without help.  Lois Brown Miller has gathered the Joseph L. Beery family, visited many where I could not and the whole book has been with her help and knowledge of her vast family.  Ed and Peggy Dick of the Decatur, Ind. family (who the Page County families left behind), Earl Good collecting his entire family,  Lois and Ruth Smith of Salem, Mo. with their help on the Kunkels and many, many others sending their own information and adding stories of others.

The book has been arranged for easy identification. Nicholas Beery, Sr., the immigrant is considered the first and has no number. His children are numbered and carry that number through the book, Abraham 4 (which is Part I) and Nicholas 6 (Part II and Part III).

The main guide should be the opposite page which shows how the family lines up. The numbers are the number of children in each family and where a name is recorded the number is the position in the family, these numbers are carried throughout the book.

Each family is carried 1n place, one generation following another. The numbers at length are each generation to the present time, such as:



Nicholas                                             6

          Beery, Jr.                                   6th child of Nicholas, Sr.


Jacob                                                 6-3

          Beery                                        3rd child of Nicholas Jr.


Abraham D.                                         6-3-2

          Beery                                        2nd child of Jacob


Peter B.                                              6-3-2-2

          Beery                                        2nd child of Abraham


Barbara Beery                                     6-3-2-2-7

          Fulk                                          7th child of Peter


Edward                                               6-3-2-2-7-5

          Fulk                                          5th child of Barbara


Marvin                                                6-3-2-2-7-5-6

          Fulk                                          6th child of Ed


    Each part is divided by families giving the page on which it begins.  The families within are further divided by capital letter headings. Generation will be carried out by indented numbers with sometimes four generations to a page.

    The write-ups are arranged in this order: number, name, birth, education, occupation, church, other organizations, wartime experience, other experiences, special interests, heirlooms, address or death.  The record of the spouse follows that of the Beery descendant, in the same paragraph.

    For families who have lived and at present live in the townships of Harlan, East River, Amity and Buchanan will have the section number and quarter to place the residence, using the map on page 332.

Page numbers will be given to direct information. 

The family write-ups beginning on page 333 will help make connection

to the Beery’s in this book.




At the present time a Beery reunion and picnic is held each year the last Sunday in July at the Lake of Three Fires State Park in Taylor County, Iowa, near Bedford. All Beery’s are welcome.

The story begins in Switzerland, where long before the Reformation the Swiss separatists were persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church because they believed in a free church disassociated from the priesthood and political authority.  They were called Anabaptists or Wiedertäufer (re-baptizers) in reproach.  The Anabaptist movement become widespread at the time of the Reformation and from that time the Swiss Anabaptists, who called themselves Brethren and were later known as Mennonites, were persecuted for their beliefs by the Reformed church and the Swiss Civil Authorities.


The Mennonites based their religious views on the teachings of the New Testament as interpreted by the individual conscience, upholding the right of dissent. They believed that there should be no exercise of force in religion, and that this principle of non-coercion required baptism upon confession of faith rather than of infants; refusal of military service - since love must rule, war is un-Christian; refusal to take oaths, believing in the sanctity of a man’s word; and abstaining from the holding of public office, though magistrates were to be obeyed in all things not prohibited by Scripture. These beliefs, coupled with their conviction that the church and state should be separate and their unwillingness to conform to the practices of the established church, brought upon them a vicious persecution.


Persecution of the Mennonites in Switzerland reached its height in Berne and during the period from 1671 to 1711. Many of the exiles from Berne settled along the Rhine in the Palatinate of Germany. Here they became a tolerated people with fewer rights than the Jews because they refused to adhere to any of the established churches - Catholic, Lutheran or Reformed. They were not allowed to have public worship, marriage with non-Mennonites, trades closed to their children, use of burial grounds denied and paid protection money as well as taxed. By 1726 many had made their way to the New World where William Penn had offered refuge in Pennsylvania to the distressed. 


Their journey took them first down the Rhine River by boat to Holland. The Mennonites there were wealthy and helped their Swiss friends prepare for the long ocean voyage. The trip across the Atlantic was hazardous, full of discomforts, suffering, disease and death. In 1710 a group of Swiss Mennonites had arrived in Philadelphia and had gone on into the forest, sixty miles to the west to establish a settlement on Pequea Creek in an area then called Conestoga.  This was the first permanent white settlement in what is now Lancaster Co.  In 1717 the largest group yet to arrive caused an additional 5000 A. to be added to the original 5000.  By 1727 the second largest immigration arrived, probably because of a ruling by the Court Palatine that the Mennonites would not be allowed to buy or sell.  The Swiss  Mennonite pioneers were hardy rural people who took a serious view of the responsibilities of life, found joy in labor, and were known for their agricultural skill which converted the unbroken forest into the richest agricultural community in the United States.  Earnest and industrious, they were outstanding farmers.  In clearing the forest, instead of leaving the stumps to rot away, they grubbed them out by the roots.  Their fields were virtually as ready for cultivation the second year as they were twenty years later.  While other farmers left their grain in the fields the Swiss stored theirs in huge barns known as “Swisser” barns to this day.  They used “contour” farming, running spring water through troughs cut in the hillsides and dammed up at the other ends so that the water would spill out over the ground. Of their horses and cattle they took







special care. Such industry did not go unrewarded.  Their community prospered and grew. And as it grew, some of the people pushed on to clear and develop new land.


The Mennonites shared this territory with another religious group of Germans who were also of the “plain people” and came to be known in this country as the German Baptist Brethren or, colloquially, as Dunkers or Dunkards.  The name officially chosen in 1908 was Church of the Brethren.  The Dunkers had originated in Germany in 1708 and, like the Mennonites, were victims of persecution and immigrated to Pennsylvania, chiefly in the years 1719 and 1729. Their religious views closely paralleled those of the Mennonites, and so the two groups lived in the same area with congeniality.  Pennsylvania Dutch became the spoken language of these people for many generations, and German was the only written language for several generations.


With the Quakers, religious dissenters like themselves, with other settlers and with the Indians they lived in peace until the Revolution brought persecution anew upon the Mennonites, Brethren and the Quakers as well, who believed all war was wrong.  They would not associate with the Associators who had formed themselves into military companies for general defense.  After the state constitution of 1776 was adopted, the state militia was organized and a fine of “three shillings and six pence for each and every parade day appointed” was to be imposed on “all able-bodied effective male white persons capable of bearing arms, not associators, between the ages of sixteen and fifty years who did not meet and exercise in order to learn the art military”.  The Mennonites and the Brethren had to pay fines for not answering muster.


A property tax, called an “effective supplies tax”, was levied by the Assembly in 1781; under the terms of the act every property holder was required to make a sworn return of all his taxable property.  For those who refused to comply with the terms of the act, the tax was doubled - a favorite device of the Whig authorities.  This double taxation naturally fell heavily on the Mennonites and the Brethren who refused to “swear”’ to anything.  Those refusing to take an oath were called “non-jurors”.


Despite these adversities the Mennonites and the Brethren continued to prosper and made a great contribution to the development of southeastern Pennsylvania.  Always on the lookout for new opportunity, many of the children and grandchildren of the pioneers emigrated to Virginia where land was cheaper and larger farms could be had for their money.  They needed large farms for their large families.  They settled in great numbers in Rockingham County and also in what is now Shenandoah County.  They believed it wrong to hold slaves, though the practice was popular in Virginia.


Soon after the turn of the nineteenth century the Mennonites and the Brethren began emigrating to Ohio, which was admitted to the Union in 1803 as a free state.  In the ensuing years, as the West became settled, Mennonites and Brethren were a part of that vast emigration and are now to be found across the whole of America.


(Condensed from BACKGROUND page 21-27 of the 1957 “Beery Family History”)








Several historical errors found in previous volumes are corrected in the “Beery Family History” of 1957.  Joseph H. Wenger published two volumes, “History of the Descendants of Abraham Beery” (1905) and “History of the Descendants of Nicholas Beery” (1911).  Careful study of Wenger’s genealogy disclosed discrepancies in the relationships.  He stated that Abraham Beery was Abraham Beer, the immigrant of 1736, and that Abraham was a brother of Nicholas Beery, the immigrant of 1727.  Lengthy research established this was not the case. Investigations made by Byron A. Beery led to the discovery that Nicholas Beery had lived and died in York County, Pennsylvania.  Among the records of that County Judith Beery Garber found old documents which prove that Abraham Beery was a son of Nicholas, the immigrant of 1727, rather than his brother. Hence Abraham Beery was not Abraham Beer, the immigrant of 1736.


Since the documents show that Abraham Beery was a son of Nicholas rather than his brother, all of the families recorded in the two Wenger histories are descendants of Nicholas Beery the immigrant of 1727. The old documents of York County show that Nicholas had nine children altogether (see pp 12).  These documents show that Abraham’s wife was Elizabeth and the wife of Nicholas, Jr., was Mary.  In the Wenger accounts the wives names were reversed.


(The above information from 1957 Beery Family History - Judith Beery Garber).


New information found since 1957 places the children of Nicholas the immigrant in new positions,  Abraham as the 4th child and Nicholas as 6 (see page 12).  This from Charles H. Starr - for the Hunsaker organization.  Other “new” corrections are used as the data is recorded and not to be confused with the 1905, 1911 and 1957 Beery Histories.

NICHOLAS BEERY (BIERI), b 1697 (probably) Canton of Berne, Switzerland. The home area of his family was in the Upper Emmenthal, where lived many Mennonites. It is probable that Nicholas and his parents John and Catharina Bieri were among those who were driven out of Berne during the period of severe persecution prior to 1711 and found refuge in the Palatinate (Germany).  It is possible that Nicholas was born in the Palatinate. At any rate, he no doubt grew up there; Like virtually all of the Swiss Mennonites, he was a farmer. Nicholas possessed the extraordinary Industry and skill in agriculture for which the Swiss Mennonites were noted. Nicholas, at his death, had been an unusually prosperous farmer shown by the appraisal of his possessions.

Nicholas immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1727 on the ship FRIENDSHIP, the last of five ships to arrive from Rotterdam that year, carrying one hundred fifty Swiss Mennonite families which had, in the spring of the year, made the long journey down the Rhine to Holland. After leaving Holland, the FRIENDSHIP met with adverse winds and required four months to make the voyage.  The hardships for those on board were so great that a fifth of the passengers died at sea. The FRIENDSHIP finally arrived at Philadelphia on October 16, 1727.

As a member of the second largest group of Swiss Mennonites to follow the original group of 1710 to the Pequea Creek settlement in Conestoga (now Lancaster County), Nicholas doubtless spent his first winter among his fellow countrymen there.  The area was still a part of Chester County, one of the three original counties of Pennsylvania.  By the time Nicholas arrived, land in this area had been largely taken up.  In 1728 the Mennonites started taking advantage of the opening up of territory west of the Susquehanna River in what is now York County, when settlement was first authorized by the Pennsylvania proprietors in a tract called Springettsbury Manor.  This was a strip of land extending west of the Susquehanna from near the mouth of Kreutz Creek to the Codorus Valley and the area west of the present city of York.

The settlers traveled to their destination west of the Susquehanna by covered wagon (“Conestoga” wagons were a product of these Penna. Germans and have been referred to as the “ships of inland commerce”).  In the wagons were the belongings which the immigrants had been able to bring with them from Europe, the essential implements of agriculture, seeds, household articles, large iron-bound chests filled with homespun’s and some of the most important household utensils, and their precious Bibles and other books.  Most of the settlers had some money.

Heavy timber covered most of the region, with occasional meadows and swamps.  Beside a spring to insure a good water supply, the settler built his first home - a hastily built cabin made to do until some land could be gotten under cultivation.  Nicholas settled on the north bank of Codorus Creek, a mile or so north of the present city of York, in the area that became Manchester Township in 1742, one of the most fertile and productive townships of York County.   In 1729, Springettsbury Manor was included with Lancaster Co. when that, the 4th Penna. Co., was organized and separated from Chester County. York Co. was not erected until 1749.

5. CATHARINA BEERY, b East Manchester Twp., York Co., Penna.; m before 1767, JOHN BLASSER; Farmer, York Co. and neighbor of Catharina’s brother-in-law, John Forry.

6. NICHOLAS BEERY, JR., b June 16, 1739, East Manchester Twp., York Co. Penna.; Farmer, owned land in Shrewsbury Twp.; For the years 1777 and 1778 was listed. as a private on the muster roll of the 7th Battalion of York Co. Militia organized under the state constitution of 1776 and commanded by Col. David Kennedy.  Nicholas and his brother Abraham were both listed in Capt. Ehrman’s unit from Shrewsbury Twp. which was then the 5th Co. of the 7th Battalion.  Their brother George was listed in Capt. John Miller’s unit of the 7th Battalion.  Nicholas, Abraham and George because of their religious principles of non-resistance, could not serve with the military forces and, for not answering muster, each was fined £3.10.0 as one of those “who did not meet and exercise in order to learn the art military”, in accordance with the resolves of the General assembly of Pennsylvania. Nicholas and his family emigrated in 1780 to Rockingham Co., Virginia and settled on Linville Creek, which was in the most fertile part of the county. Nicholas was deeded land in Rockingham County by John Eaton in July 1783, and by Thomas Moore in March 1785.  In the Rockingham County enumeration of 1784, Virginia state census, Nicholas was listed as head of a










family with ten “white souls”, one dwelling, and one other building.  For the personal property tax (sometimes called the “horse tax”), Nicholas was listed among the tithables (all males in the state above 16 years of age) as a “vocher” with 5 horses in 1788, owner of 240 acres in 1789, and a tithable with 5 horses in 1792, in the Linville Creek district.  A man’s wealth in those days was judged by the number of horses he had, and a “five-horse man” was considered quite wealthy.  Since the tax was based on the number of horses, they were generally limited by the farmers to the necessary minimum.  It has been said that Nicholas owned slaves in Virginia, however, no official record has been found of Nicholas’ having slaves.  At any rate, Nicholas sold his possessions in Virginia and with most of his large family, went to Ohio by “mountain schooner” in 1805 or a little earlier.  Once again they were among the pioneers who opened up a new territory and converted the primeval forest into fertile fields.  Nicholas purchased, at $2.00 per acre,. a large tract of wild timber land which embraced most of the western part of Rush Creek Township, Fairfield Co., Ohio and settled on Raccoon Creek.  There he built a sawmill and gristmill in 1806, the first in the township.  Nicholas gave each of his children a farm of about 160 acres from his large tract of the rich and productive soil of Rush Creek Township.  In 1834, Nicholas’ son George founded the town of Bremen in Rush Creek Township, on land that was said to be part of Nicholas’ large original purchase.  At the time of the centennial of Bremen in 1934, it was found that most people of the community were directly or indirectly related to the family of Nicholas Beery.  Nicholas died Feb. 16, 1812 in Fairfield Co., Ohio, and was buried in the Huddle or Mt. Zion cem. 2 mi. SE Berne on Houck Road.  Nicholas married (1) in Penna., MARY KELLER; Nicholas married (2) in 1789 in Virginia, Mrs. MARY (GROW) GOOD; b 1756 in Rockingham Co., and died Oct. 31, 1840 near Bremen, Ohio. 16 children: SEE PART II, SEE PART III.

7. MARGARET BEERY, b East Manchester Twp., York Co., Penna.; Margaret married (1) JOHN FORRY; Farmer in York Co. In 1782 had 300 A. and 2 horses, Margaret’s name appeared on the tax rolls in 1783 as John had died.  Margaret married (2) JACOB BURKHART of Manheim Twp., York Co., 8 chil: Jacob, John, Abraham, Elizabeth, Margaret, Daniel, Rudolph and Magdalena Forry. (all of first marriage).

8. SUSANNA BEERY, b East Manchester Twp., York Co., Penna.; m before 1767, JOHN BICKSLER; Farmer of York Co.; In 1781 taxed on 250 A., John was listed by the assessors in 1781 as a non-juror, and because his religious principles required that he refuse to take an oath in making his return for the property tax called an “effective supplies tax”, he was taxed double on his property. John died sometime before Aug. 16, 1796. 4 chil: Jacob, “Christly”, “Jose” and a dau., wife of John Bay.

9. GEORGE BEERY, b East Manchester Twp., York Co., Penna.; Farmer in York Co. owned land in Shrewsbury Twp.; George and his wife were members of the Codorus Church of the Brethren, records of 1770.  For military see Nicholas Jr. story. George married between 1767 and 1770.

Adams County, Indiana is located on the Indiana, Ohio border.  The County seat is Decatur, some 20 miles south of Ft. Wayne, Indiana.  This area is all farming country, the Beery’s and Goods came into the country when the land was opened for development.  They all settled west of Decatur in Kirkland and Washington Townships and attended the River Brethren Church where the Beery Cemetery is situated (3 mi. west of Decatur).


“The descendants of Jacob and Anna (Beery) Good have scattered throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and some western states.


Why all the children except Melinda Andrews moved out of Adams County is still a question unanswered.  Opportunity must have beckoned and the quest for further development in life, property and education must have been an incentive.  The Antioch or Beery church is still standing but is now abandoned.  The search for the old records of the church has been fruitless.  The cemetery adjoining the church is kept in beautiful condition due to the fact that the descendants of the persons buried there have formed a cemetery association to preserve this resting place.  Recently a chain-linked fence has been built to protect and preserve the cemetery.


The Antioch church was formerly called the River Brethren but in later years was taken over by the Missionary denomination. Many of the artifacts and furnishings of the church had been donated by the families and were taken to their respective homes when the church was closed.  A few years ago, a Baptist congregation used the church until their church was acquired.  During the cleanup process, several people brought back these furnishings for the new group to use.  Now that the church is again closed, the families of the old members have again reclaimed the artifacts.  What a story these things could tell if they could only talk.


History repeats itself as can be told by the extent of ministers, educators, teachers and farmers contained in these pages.  A good life and family interest is prevalent throughout this day and age”

Dutch Flat Hill


The Flumes are still

On Dutch Flat Hill

Where once the flow of gold, was steady,

The Hills resound

To ghostly sound

Of men whose hand and hearts were ready.


Two lone pines guard the Diggins

Where the yellow gold, once flowed

With roaring avalanche

Flint and flail

Or so the story’s told.


Beyond the ridge

Are ghostly trails

Where whitened bones but tell the story, Where Jackals stay

That barred the way,

Of men who failed to reap the glory.


Yet on yon plateau

An astreal burns,

For those who knew, realization;

But in a quiet spot below

Church bells toll

That all men know, a common Destination.


The eager hordes

Who came that day,

Like the roll of drums, have faded away,

And only the silent

Scepters stay

To remind us, of another day.


But in the Hamlet

Sleeping there,

The pine trees whisper a fervent prayer,

And hoary hearts

Recall the thrill,

When go In ran free, on Dutch Flat Hill.
