TheReformed Church stood on land occupied by the Alcolah Church on Route28 west of Hawthorne, PA. John and Susannah are buried in the AlcolaCemetery near Hawthorne. Her stone is in Pennsylvania Dutch. Blindfrom age 68. Between 1804 when John moved to Northumberland from LynnTwp., Northhampton County and 1807 John married a Northumberland girlnamed Susan. They purchased a section of land in Upper Mahanoy Twp.from Mathias and Elizabeth Harter on November 24, 1807. They moved outfrom under Jacob's (John's older brother) roof and had thirteenchildren. In 1814 John Holben of Upper Mahanoy Twp. was mustered as aprivate with Lt. Joseph Dribblebies Co. of the 77th Regiment fromNorthumberland County. He marched over 100 miles to the new camp atMarcus Hook on the Delaware River. John's name appears on the companypayroll for September 1814 as having 'rec'd a blanket' while at MarcusHook and again, on a payroll dated November 10, 1814 as 'rec'd $6.00'in December of that same year. This camp was created to defeat anyattempt by the British on Philadelphia and to provide assistance incase the enemy began a movement against the DuPont powder mills atWilmington. In 1820 John and Susan purchased more land in UpperMahanoy Twp., Northumberland County from William and Mary Whitman.This same year, 1820, John's dad, Jacob II, died at the age of 72.His death caused the group to remember his deed/dower agreement ofFebruary 6, 1804 leaving his farm in Lynn Twp., Northampton County tohis sons Christian and Jacob. On August 12, 1820 the agreement dated 6February 1804 was recorded in Northumberland County. Before the estateof Jacob II could be settled, Jacob the III, the administrator, diedunexpectedly, intestate. He left a widow, Elizabeth, and seven minorchildren. Elizabeth waived her right to be administratrix and thecourt appointed Jacob's brothers, John and Daniel, as administratorsas well as de bonis non of the yet unsettled estate of old Jacob II.By the time the estate was distributed and settled in 1830, PeterHolben had moved from the area. In 1830 John had heard of cheapWestern lands. Many of his neighbors had already gone to areas inArmstrong and Jefferson Counties where they had purchased land at afraction of the price for which they had sold the equivalent inNorthumberland County. On March 26, 1831, John and Susan sold the lastof their land to Joseph Tobias and headed to Armstrong County. In 1831he purchased land in Redbank Twp. in Armstrong County from theKittanning Office of the Holland Land Company The land was beingoffered in quarter sections for $1.25 per acre. The following year hepurchased an adjoining 165 acres for $1.00 an acre. The Holbenscontinued to follow the Reformed Faith in Armstrong County. The firstchurch of that denomination in the area stood on the same ground nowoccupied by the Alcola Church on Route 28 west of Hawthorne, PA. Johnand Susan are buried in the cemetery across the road from the church.Susan's stone is written in Pennsylvania Dutch and John's is inEnglish. I have photos of them. When his wife died on 20 April 1855,John, a widower at age 73, and blind since at least age 68, decided tomove in with his third son Samuel. On November 5, 1857, John deeded tohis youngest son, Jacob, 86 acres of the original farm for $ 781.85. Hannah Shick, John's daughter, moved in temporarily with herbrother, Samuel, to help care for her father. On March 1, 1862 hedied.

Included in the packet was an affidavit of JacobGruber (Note: Is this guy a relative of Samuel's wife?), a resident ofSeigle, Jefferson County, Pa. dated August 6, 1889. Jacob states thathe has known Samuel for 70 ? years, that he was sound and healthy atthe time of his enlistment, that he saw him in the hospital atKittaning with rheumatism, that he got the rheumatism standing guard,and that he never had rheumatism before his military service. Twoother undated affidavits prepared by neighbors, Jacob Markle and JacobSchreckuyosh?, residing in Pierce, Armstrong County, Pa. are included.Both state that they knew Samuel as sound and able before he enlistedin October 1861 and that since his discharge he has had rheumatismwhich has disabled him fully one half from manual labor. Also includedis a Declaration for Original Invalid Pension form, partiallycompleted by Samuel Holben. It states that during his military servicehe contracted rheumatism caused by exposure. He was in the hospital atCamp Orr, Kittanning, Armstrong Co., Pa. and was treated by hisregimental surgeon, Dr. McCullough for rheumatism from which he hassuffered ever since. Since leaving the service he says he has been afarmer residing at Pierce, Armstrong County, Pa. Witnesses whoverified his identity were Tobias Schick and Jacob Holben ofBrookville ?, Pa. The date was 24 June 1889. A paper in the file fromthe Department on the Interior, Bureau of Pensions dated September 13,1889 states the Samuel Holben enlisted October 1st, 1861 and wasdischarged at Camp Orr, Pa. November 5, 1861. While serving in the 2ndRegiment Pa. Cav he was disabled by rheumatism- time and place notstated. Another paper from the War Department, Record and PensionDivision, dated 8 November 1889, states Samuel Holben was enrolled onthe 1st day of October 1861, at Salem?, in Co. M, 2nd Regiment ofPenna Cav Volunteers to serve 3 years during the war. On the Musterroll of Co. M of that regiment for the months of November and December1861, he is reported discharged by physician date and place not given,muster roll of company not on file. Investigation fails to elicitfurther record of this man's discharge than is stated on Companyrolls. A letter dated October 6, 1906 addressed to Samuel J. Holben,Freeport, R.D. 2, Pa. states that further action could not be taken onyour claim because the records of the War Department failed to showyour date of discharge. There is no record to indicate that a pensionwas approved.

GrandmaSusan Doney had John Holben-bachelor brother; Euphemia HolbenBuffington (no children) sister; Lizzie Stroup-a cousin; Hannah HolbenShindledecker sister; Samuel Holben-cousin. Mammy Doney's hair notvery gray when she died. The wedding date of 1870 for Daniel andSusannah was taken from the back of a large photograph given toThelma Doney by Cora Enterline. I believe that the notes were writtenby Cora. The photograph is now in the possession of Susan Reid Sharp.Also in the possession of Susan Reid Sharp is an infant's capbelonging to Susannah Holben when she was a baby. It is dark blue andhas lots of tiny stitches. The chain of ownership- Cora Enterline,Thelma Black Doney, Vivian Doney Reid, Susan Reid Sharp. Book:Tombstone Hopping by Patricia Steele verifies place of burial.According to Vivian Doney Reid, her Grandmother, Susannah Holben,wastall and slender. Her hair was still dark when she died. She alwayswore dark dresses which went down to the floor. She was nice, but notvery demonstrative or openly affectionate. In Viv's view, her cookingwas not as good as her mother's, Caroline Doney. Grandma Doney wouldgive them pie to take home after a visit and when the car would roundthe bend they would throw it out the window. The Doney home had agrayish board siding. It was built by Daniel Doney. It had no frontporch. Downstairs it had two living rooms, one on either side of acenter hall and a huge kitchen across the back. One living room had alarge graphaphone in it and the other had a fancy parlor organ.Grandpa Doney had made a little table and arrowback chairs for thekitchen. They were blue gray in color. There was also a spinningwheel. According to Cora there was a large cherry cupboard. The househad front and back stairways. The back stairway in the kitchen had acupboard under it. When it stormed Viv used to hide in the cupboard.The upstairs had several bedrooms and a low ceilings. The posts on thespool bed that Thelma Doney has that Daniel Doney made almost touchedthe ceiling. The beds had feather ticks on them. There was no bathroomin the house. The house had 2 porches. One was a back porch and onewas like a side porch. Grandma Doney had huge geraniums on the porch.Other buildings were the cellar, the springhouse, the smokehouse, thebarn and the summer house. The summer house was two stories. There wasa large table downstairs and beds upstairs. In the summer when all thekids would come to visit they would sleep upstairs in the summerhouse.When the State of Pennsylvania decided to build a highway that wentright through the farm they offered Grandpa Doney money for the landthey would take. He was not satisfied with the offer and ended upgetting nothing. The farm had sheepnose apple trees and a large quinceand acacia tree. They also had grapes and a huge garden behind thehouse.. The animals raised were sheep, pigs, cows, horses andchickens. Grandpa used to smoke hams and J.C. would buy some from himto serve in the Boarding House. Extra produce was taken toReynoldsville to sell. The farm was surrounded by split rail fences.Henry and Daniel Doney used to go to the farm sometimes to help theirGrandpa make hay. When Grandpa Doney died, the farm was auctioned off.Vivian wanted to take a little tiny minature man's hat. Her Dadwouldn't let her have anything. Cora took everything. What was left,was auctioned off. When Uncle Henry teased Viv he would tell her shehad a lantern jaw just like Grandma Doney.
