Hans Georg Döllinger

M, b. circa 1690, d. 6 September 1769
     Hans Georg Döllinger was also known as George Dellinger. He was born circa 1690 at Germany or Switzerland Per Daniel Bly post on genforum.com ( http://genforum.com/dellinger/messages/64.html ):

George Dellinger of Virginia died in 1769 and the children listed in his will were:
Christian, oldest son, Frederick, Jacob, John (killed by Indians 1764), Augustine, David. Daughters were Sybilla, m. Martin Roller, Barbara, m. Lewis Setzer, & Catherine m. Moses Stricker (NOT Strickler).
I suspect that George's wife, Catherine was a daughter of Christian Krahenbuhl, a Mennonite expelled from Switzerland in 1710. George Dellinger (Hans Georg Döllinger) was with the Mennonite community in Lancaster in 1728 but later in Virginia had all his children baptized as Lutherans. In Virginia the Krahenbuhl name became Crabill and Graybill.

The Dellingers of North Carolina are a different family entirely.

He married Catherina Krahenbühl, daughter of Christian Krahenbühl and Elizabeth Liechti, at Germany (probably). Hans Georg Döllinger was a Mennonite at the time of his signature on the "Martin Meili" petition requesting to take the Oath of Allegiance in order to qualify for purchase of land. After migration to what is now Shenandoah County, Virginia, he apparently determined to join the German Lutheran church community there, and in 1736 had his older children baptized along with an infant child, by Lutheran minister Caspar Stoever.

In a warrant from 24 April 1752, George Dellinger, John Painter and Peter Fultz requested a Deed in Trust for 400 acres of waste and ungranted land "including the Dutch Chappel, the said Land being for the use of the Society of Dutch Protestants." Across Swover Creek and up the next hill, Dellinger could see the meetinghouse from his back porch balcony. (Christian Dellinger's house was 2 to 3 miles away from the Zion Church, with several hills between to two places, making it impossible for him to see the church from his porch.)

Named as partners in this society were Christian Dellinger, Ulrich Mire, Nicholus Counts (Kuntz) and 13 other German neighbors. In the early years, it became known simply as Jacob's Church. Valley historian John Wayland theorized that this was meant to honor the name of Jacob Rinker - shared by the pioneer, son and grandson - who all lived but a mile further down the road and all cared for the little chapel. (According to Sandi Yelton, Jacob's Church wasn't established until 1838, after Christian Dellinger Sr. was deceased. The church that Christian Dellinger, Sr. was involved in was designated "Society of Church Protestants" in April of 1753 when Christian Dellinger and 15 others were named as members of the "Deutsche Evangelische Gemeinde" and was known as Zion-Pine Lutheran and Reformed Church. The church was granted land in 1753, however chuch records did not begin until 1788 when a "newly built church" was dedicated. Apparently no deed for the land was issued in 1753, so in 1781, Johannes Bender, Johann Penneyweight, Peter Voltz and George Dellinger, Christian Sr.'s son, as officers of the congregation were issued the deed on 9 January 1781.)

Although George Dellinger took the oath in Pennsylvania as a Mennonite, the meetinghouse entrusted in his name became a church for the Lutheran and Reformed congregations along the Back Road of Shenandoah County. (There was not a church in the area of the Back Road at the time when George Dellinger lived in the area. It wasn't until 1838 when the Jacob Church was established there. The church acquired the land in 1789 but no church was built for 49 years thereafter. The Zion Church in which Christian, Sr. was associated with is not located on the Back Road, which is today called the Senedo Road, but on Headquarters Road some several miles to the east).

He was naturalized on 1 April 1728 at Conestoga Twp., Lancaster Co. (now), PA; Oath of Allegiance to England.

The following article The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine "German Qualification for Naturalization in Pennsylvania, 1728" was written by Barbara L. Weir, a certified genealogical records searcher and Laurie A. Rofini, the archivist at the Chester County Archives.

"As Early as 1717 the Commissioners of Property, agents of the proprietor for the sale of land in Pennsylvania, advised the Palatines of Conestoga and Pequea to seek naturalization because of the 'Disadvantage they were under by being born aliens, that therefore their Children could not inherit nor they themselves convey to others the Lands they purchase.' It was not, however, until February 1728/28 that Martin Mylen and Wendall Bowman of the "Congregation of the Menists" began the process of naturalization by petitioning the Chester County Court of Quarter Sessions. Mylen and Bowman requested that they and their fellow Mennonites be allowed 'to sign & subscribe the oaths of supremacy and allegiance' before two justices of the court. Henry Peirce and George Aston, justices, were appointed to arrange a convenient meeting place. On 1 April 1728, at Mylen's house at Conestoga, approximately 200 Mennonites joined by 23 fellow Germans signed the documents qualifying them for naturalization. The Mennonites signed a form of the qualification that did not require that they 'swear' an 'oath.'

The process then apparently stalled for over a year before moving to the jurisdiction of the newly formed county of Lancaster. On November 1729 a petition on behalf of those who had 'Taken the Loyal Qualifications' was drawn up and forwarded to Governor Patrick Gordon. On 16 January 1729/30 Governor Gordon reported that he had investigated the case and recommended passage of a bill to naturalize the petitioners. At a council held on 28 January 1729/30 some amendments were made to the bill and, finally, on 14 February 1729/30 'An Act of the Better Enabling Divers Inhabitants of the Province of Pennsylvania to Hold Lands, and to Invest Them With the Privileges of Natural-Born Subjects of the Said Province' was passed by the Assembly. Ordinarily Pennsylvania legislation was required to be reviewed by the Privy Council in London, but since the act was never considered by the crown, it became law with the lapse of time as allowed by the propriety charter.

It should be noted that not all of the petitioners who signed the qualifications at Martin Mylen's in 1728 were included in the act passed by the Assembly.

The Oath of Allegiance and Abjuration signed by the non-Mennonites follows:

Wee the Subscribers Do Sincerely promise and Swear that wee will be faithfull and bear true Allegiance to his majesty King George the Second so help us God.

Wee the Subscribers do likewise Swear that we do from our hearts abhor Detest and Abjure, as Impious and herticall, that Damnable Doctrine and posicion, that princes Excomunicated or deprived by the Pope, or any authority of the See of Rome, may be Deposed or Murdered by their Subjects or any other whatsoever, And wee do Declare, That no Foreign prince, person, prelate, state or potentate, hath or ought to have any Jurisdiction, power Superiorty, preeminence or authority Ecclesiasticall or Spiritual within the Realm of Great Britian or the Dominions thereunto belonging, so help us God."

Among the Mennonites that signed the Qualifications was Hanss Georg Dollinger (with an umlauted o). When comparing this signature to the one on the Will of George Dellinger of Virginia in 1769, and taking into account his age in 1769, the two signatures appear to be of the same man. Both signatures clearly have an umlauted "O" in the last name. In the "D" he brings the loop across the bottom in both. In the "G" in Dellinger, he puts another loop going the same way in each. He made a will in Frederick Co., Virginia, on 20 July 1769; Allender Sybert's letter of 13 January 1992 indicates the will of George Dellinger dated 20 July 1769, provided September 1769 in Frederick Co., Virginia, is listed in "Abstracts of Wills, Inventories, and Administration Account of Frederick County, Virginia, 1743-1800", by J. Estelle Stewart King. The will lists son Christian Dillinger, son-in-law Moses Strickler, daughter Barbara and her husband Lewis Letzer. The aforementioned 1769 will is also citied in the book "Shenandoah Valley Pioneer Settlers" by Gene Paige Hammond, from Strasburg, Virginia on pages 36-40 taken from "Frederick County Wills", book 3, page 507f.

Note: Elder, St. Paul's Lutheran Church.

He died on 6 September 1769 at Frederick (now Shenandoah) Co., VA. He was buried in September 1769 at Dellinger Cemetery, Conicville, Shenandoah Co., VA, Find A Grave Memorial# 82333172. He left a will.
