PHILIP CABLE ( -1780) *

(1) PHILIP CABLE- (Kable), as it is registered at Germantown Pa. and on the record in Germany. Philip and his wife Maria (BRADY) Cable fled from the Palatinate, County of Wittgenstein, Germany during the great persecu- tions following the Treaties of Westphalia (1648). Arrived in America on the "Pennsylvania Merchant" on 11 Sep. 1732. Philip and family settled in Germantown in 1732. (A section of Philadelphia, Pa.). Philip and Maria on arriving at Germantown soon were attracted to the Brethren in the Germantown Church. About 1735 or 1736, Philip and Maria were attracted to Conrad Beissel and his preaching. They soon affiliated them-selves with the Beissel movement and moved near Ephrata after Beissel began his work there. Philip died near York, Pennsylvania and is buried there. His will is recorded in the York Courthouse; in it the following children are mentioned: Barbara BEISEL, Abraham, Benjamin, Jacob who married Salome NEAL. [PENN.

[Info from: Cable history Date: Mon, 23 Aug 1999 From: (Betty Perry)

The date when Philip moved his family to Ephrata was 1735 (not 1736). I have visited the Ephrata Cloister which is now a state historical site. It has been beautifully maintained. Tours of the grounds are given. There are artifacts on display. There is a office where heavy work has been and is being done to sort all the cloister records. I located files on the Cable family, as well as correlate families. Because my time was limited, after my departure, they took my list of wanted files and sent me copies. There is a book about the cloister that I bought there, "The Ephrata Commune, An Early American Counterculture", by E. G. Alderfer. The sect represented there was the Seventh Day German Baptist Brethren, which is a derivative of the Mennonite faith. This commune was the first Protestant cloister in the U,S., with brothers and sisters (monks & nuns) living a spartan existence.] (Note; Germantown Penn. the first organized German settlement in America, now called Germantown. Thirteen families from Frefeld, Germany arrived in the New World on 6 Oct. 1683.  Some of the families were: GEN. VON STUBEN, CARL SCHURG, THOMAS KUNDER, JAN LUKEN, WESTINGHOUSE, EISENHOWER, UPDEGRADE, DANIEL PASTORIUS,& PERSHING.)

(1) PHILLIP CABLE (And wife Maria Brady)

(2) ABRAHAM CABLE (Source: Two Centuries of Brothersvalley, Pa. )

(2nd s/o Philip & Maria Brady Cable) was in Stony Creek, prior to summer of 1762. He moved into the area from Germantown about 1760. He settled at the juncture of the two Indian trails, one running north and south to Niagara Falls and Canada; the other going south from Brotherton, to the Indian villages in Tennessee. this crossing at Brotherton was a very important spot in the life of the Indians and later the early settlers. Henry, George and James Brotherton were there when Cable and his large family moved to the "crossing".

Abraham Cable built a log cabin just across theIndian trail from the Brotherton boy cabin. They had located at a spring, where now the milk house of Mr.& Mrs. Robert Bauermaster, or about where the barn now stands. It seems that when the Stony Creek road (now Rt. 31) was built through the settlement and it was located in the Bauermaster meadow, north of the house, before the present site was located, that it was planned that way in order not to pass through the Brotherton,Cable holdings. Nevertheless, the eldest son, Jonathan born at Brotherton, 1761, later built his log cabin in the field just east of his father. By 1762 there must have been at least seven or eight cabins at the Brotherton crossing. There are four old foundation scars in the area; just across the road from the Church parsonage is an old hay barrack. This was located on the Christian Cable cabin foundation. (Christian was born, 1766, died 1828), buried on Calvin Will Farm).

Abraham was born in Switzerland and married ca. 1752 to Mary (Maria) V. Magdalene in Pennsylvania. He was naturalized in 1762. This caused a stir among the Brethren at Germantown because a member had to take the "Oath of Allegiance to the King of England." this was against the order of the Church for they followed the strict letter of the Scriptures which said: "But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath; but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation." - James 5:12. The Naturalization Act declared that the applicant had to have a signed statement from the clergy that he had attended a Communion Service within a period of three months. No elder at Germantown would sign the record. It is alleged That Rev Conrad Beissel signed the document. From that date on Abraham Cable was denied fellowship with the Brethren. All through the life of Abraham Cable one may see that he really did not align himself closely with the Brethren although he was baptized and reared in the Faith; indeed it is the belief of the author that he never really accepted all the teachings and beliefs of the Church of the Brethren. When he settled in Bruedersthal he bacame a part of theBrethren fellowship for it was the convenient and practical thing to do. From the very beginning of the Church in Brothers Valley there was separation in many fields and many practices. Cable became the clerk as it was called in that day for the Brethren. Abraham had attended the Ludwig Hoecker Sunday School at Germantown, and the school held by Cornad Beissel at Ephrata. He had been indoctrinated very well by the Seventh Day teachings at Ephrata. he played a large role in Martin's church in Stony Creek.

Abraham Cable was a well-read man for his day, he could read and write German, French and English, he was a surveyor and mathematiciain. He had traveled far and wide among the Indians besides being familiar with the law. In fact, his neighbors thought so much of him and his ability as a scribe and counselor that in October, 1771, they signed the following paper: (Refered to in Minutes of council of November 23, 1771.) Read in council 23d Nov., yr. 1771; & a Commission issued to Abraham KEBLES a Justice of the Peace & for the County of Bedford. This is a direct quote as copied from the orignial document). (It is said that he was the first such Justice east of the Alleghany Mountains.) Abraham Keble is a Person in whom they have Confidence, is a Man of Proper and Reputation,and understands both Languages (German & English). They therefore - Request your Honor will be pleased to commissionate and Appoint he said Abrahm Keble or some other Person your Honormay approve to be a Magistrate in that Quarter. ( Note; there was two pages of names on the petition. Two of these names were: Jacob & Peter FISCHER.)

Abraham was listed on the 1800 Berlin, Penn. roster of citizens of the 1800 Census, as being past 45 yrs. of age. He was commissioned Justice of the Peace as the signers requested, November 23, 1771, and served that position until his death, ( His will #8 Somerset Co. 1805 ) except for his war years as he served in the Revolution under General George Washington. (Abraham migrated from York Co. Pa. to Somerset Co. Pa. prior to the American Rev. He served as Associate Judge in 1795...History of Bedford, Somerset, and Fulton Counties 1884) Jefferson Co. Ohio History states Abraham was promoted to the rank of Col. in Bedford Co. Pa. in the Rev. War. he was present at the battle of Yorktown. He loaned the Government a large sum ($50,000.) of gold to assist the financing of Washington's army. This was never repaid, this has been certified in the papers of George Washington, now in keeping of the Government in Washington D.C.

[ Note from Howard C. Maxwell; " David G. Maxwell the third great grandson of Abraham Cable, sent to Washignton D. C. an attorney - charged with finding the facts about the loan made by Abraham to the Rev. War Effort. The report brought back:

(1) Yes the congressional (or some) acknowledges that indebtedness due heirs.

(2) It would take an affirmative by Congress of a bill drafted to require the treasurer to release the funds.

(3) The fund would be of unbelievable size and destabalize the treasury.

(4) By the time the heirs - Cables, Balls, etc. and all the rest make such a total of heirs that, by the time taxes and attorneys were deleted each heir might get 50 cents each.

Notes for John Martin Cable: Historical Marker at Pringle Hill Cemetery reads: 1782


(Pringle Hill)

On this land once known as Elk Pasture the first white children of the Allegheny Wilderness were born to John Martin Cable, rontiersman and part-time Dunkard preacher, who came from Bedford in 1782. His homestead was occupied in 1795 by George & Philip Pringle who had married Cable's daughters Mary & Catherine, and for whom this locality is named. Both couples are buried in this pioneer cemetery.


The Cable family left the region about 1788 to live in Frankstown, Blair County, PA.

BOOK: THE SUMMERHILL STORY by Frank P. Alcamo, Cambria Public Library, Pennsylvania Room

The earliest family to settle north of the Little Conemaugh River was John Martin Cable at Elk Pasture, between Summerhill and Wilmore. This tract, it is believed, was surveyed to Samuel Griffin in 1773 and contained a cabin built by a man named Knott. Hannah Cable is said to have been born here in 1783. She is recorded as having died in Indiana County (1830) as Hannah Cable Coleman. Her birthplace is the former Victor Beyer farm, not far east of Summerhill. Two of Cable's daughters, Mary and Christina, married George and Philip Pringle. They located (1795) in the area known as Pringle Hill, about 1 1/2 miles from Summerhill.

(2) ABRAHAM CABLE (And wife Mary Magdalene)

(3) JACOB CABLE, born ca. 1753 died near 1833-34, Jefferson Co. Ohio, he married ca 1796 (Believe the birth date on Jacob must be wrong, he would have been 43 yrs old when he married and 60 when last child born, it must be a misprint and he was born 1763 or 73.) to Mary "Polly" Christinia Walker, d/o Jacob b. 1742 Germany m. 1765, d.1783 Somerset Co. Pa. and his wife Elizabeth Walker. It is said in Jefferson Co. Ohio history that Jacob came from Fayette Co. Jacob came to Jefferson County Island Creek Township where his first son, David Cable was born in 1797. Jacob and his sons; Silas, Benjamin, Jonathon and Isaac settled in Freedom Township, Wood Co. Ohio in the 1830's, along with Ephraim Cable Jr. Jacob's great nephew. Ephraim's land located south east of Pemverville, Ohio, Wood Co. Freedom Twp. Land Records in Wood Co. Recorders Office Freedom Twp. Sec. 28: NW Qt. Sec. part 65.05 acres along river sold to Jacob CABLE by State of Ohio for $81.25 on 25 Dec. 1833. Jacob conveyed this to Isaac CABLE (probably his son) on 11 Sept. 1834, both listed as of Jefferson Co. Ohio. Sarah Cable, conveyed title to this same property to Henry SHIPLEY in 1860 for $1000.00. she is shown as a resident of Jeff. Co. Oh. I would guess this is probably the widow of Isaac Cable. [WOOD COUNTY SENTINEL, THURS. APRIL 3, 1884, PIONEER NOTES-FREEDOM TOWNSHIP...Three Cable brothers settled about the year 1834 in New Rochester. "About this time (ca 1834) came the Cable brothers, Silas, Benjamin, & Isaac from Morrow county. One of them settled about a mile below New Rochester on the Daniel FISH farm, one on the opposite side of the river about a quarter of a mile below there, and the other on the Eisenhour ridge. The land was given them by their father. they evidently were not accusomed to the harships of pioneer life,a nd had probably left homes of luxury and ease, as the howling wolves, the shaking ague, the "pesky" mosquitoes and various early privations were too much for them, and they resolved to return to their first love. They loaded their families and household goods in canoes and "set sail" down the Portage. But their voy(age) like their stay in the wilderness was attended by disaster. When they arrived about one mile below where pemberville now is, one canoe containing their wives, children and clothing capsized and of course spilt the whole cargo into the river. Fortunately none were drowned but they lost all their clothing. They were no akin to the present Cable of Freedom. The latter statement has since been proven to be mistaken, they were of the Freedom Cable Families. These three brothers are said to be the sons of Jacob & Mary (Walker) Cable. Jacob was a millwright of grain mills, and died in 1833-34, his wife nee Mary Walker, of Penn. departing this life in 1816. David Cable was brought up on a farm in Jeff. Co. Ohio; in 1818 he assisted in building the first market house; worked at the construction of the wharf about 1821-2, and contracted on the new jail and county offices in 1834. He was trea surer for Jeff. Co. from 1849 to 1853, was in the council three or four years; had also filled the office of street commissioner,and drifted into the lumber business in 1828, which he continued down to 1860, but he had lived a comparatively retired life since 1862. He married to Rosanna KING, d/o William King of Ireland, in 1826, and she still was living in her 82nd. year. David and Rosanna had a family of four sons and two daughters; one of the sons, WILLIAM CABLE, was a doctor practicing in Pittsburgh, and another living at home at the time of this history was an engineer, while one of his daughters became the wife of John T. PHILLIPS, of New Castle, Pa. Jacob Cable and his family lived at Island Creek Township, Jefferson Co. Ohio. (Ref. to Jacob being son of Abraham & Mary Cable found inthe "Jonathan Cable Book.", It states" Jacob Cable came from Fayette Co. Pa., to Island Creek Township about 1800 where he continued his trade of millwright of grain mills. Jacob and his wife Mary Walker reared a family of seven sons and two daughters: Jacob, Benjamin, Jonathon, Silas, Isaac, David, Joseph, Elizabeth & Mary.". It also states that Joseph & Ephraim Cable were two of the very first white children born in the Northwest Territory - Ephraim in 1797 and Joseph in 1801".

MARIA BARBARA7 WALKER (JACOB ANDREAS6 WACKER, MICHAEL5, JOHANN (HANS) JORG4, JORG DES GERICHTS HEILIGENPFLEGER3, JORG2, MARTIN1) was born May 24, 1783 in Brothers Valley, Somerset, Pennsylvania, and died 1813 in Paris, Stark, Ohio. She married JACOB CABLE 1800 in Brothers Valley, Somerset Co., Pennsylvania.

Notes for MARIA BARBARA WALKER: Maria Barbara, together with the younger children were raised by foster parents. This esulted in some loss of data and conflicting reports of her survival. There is some data that she did survive and was married to a Mr.Jacob Cable. Records in Stark Co. Ohio should be examined for evidence of Jacob's Spouse Elizabeth's burial records.

A Capt. he was a soldier in the Rev. War. At the first court northwest of the Ohio River near 1798, at Steubenville, Capt. Cable was appointed the Judge by Winthrop Sargent. (Judge Philip was so popular that he officiated at most of the marriages and adopted a short service so that waiting couples would not be delayed by much ceremony. It usually ended with "Give me a dollar, kiss your bride, and go about your business". Having no one present on one such occassion he called his wife Dolly and Black Harry, "I pronounce you man and wife, give me a dollar." The first court room was on the ground where the present court house now stands, and first court held on Jan. 2, 1797. Capt. Cable was one of the officials to whom the ground was deeded to the City of Steubenville by Bazelel Wells, for $5.00 on 15 Aug. 1792. Judge Philip's originial farm in Island Creek Twp. Jeff. Co.

(V) EPHRAIM CABLE JR. born 12 Oct. 1828 Island Creek Township, Jefferson Co. Ohio, married 13 Nov. 1851 to Sarah MORROW of Jeff. Co. About 1857 Ephraim and Sarah moved west to Wood Co. Ohio to settle on land given him by his father. the 160 acre farm in Freedom Township still in timber, was originally granted to Silas CABLE on 20 Dec. 1835 by the U.S. government. Silas sold it to Ephriam Cable, Sr. 19 Sept. 1842 at Jeff. Co. He gave it to his son, William Walker Cable on 27 Jan. 1851 as full value for his share of the family estate. On Oct 1st. the following year William deeded it back to his father, perhaps having determined not to settle on it. This time Ephraim Sr. gave it to his son, Ephraim Jr. on 2 Oct. 1852. He mortgaged it to his father on the same day for the sum of $300.00 and this was witnessed by Beatty & Minerva McFARLAND who lived on the ajoining farm in Island Creek Township, Jeff. Co. Just when the couple did travel to Wood Co. and begin clearing the land is not certain but it was after 1855, and before January 1858 when Ephraim Jr., signed a note of Amos LADD in Wood County. There were several Cables all ready in Wood Co. and in Freedom Twp. Jacob Cable, said to be uncle of Ephraim Jr. and his sons, had settled there in the 1830's and by 1835 the township contained; Silas, Benjamin, Jonathan, & Isaac Cable. Ephraim's land was located southeast of the settlement of Pemberville and was just south of Eisenhour Ridge. Ephraim took sick with inflamation of the lungs and died 1860 at 31 years of age.{Ohio Crossroads Of Nations, by Powell. 1976 Series. & 1860 Mortality Schedule Wood Co. Freedom Twp.}

Ephraim Cable Jr. was buried on Eisenhour Ridge. Dr. H. BUCKLAND itemized his bill for services and it is contained in the Estate Settle- ment. It cover a period from April 1 through June 25 of 1860 and amounts for jouneys, medicines, and bleedings. Sometimes he made two trips out to the farm in one day. Ephraim's widow Sarah was left with three small children. She had an auction of farm implements and some of the livestock on 8 Sept. 1860 and on 30 April 1863 finally sold forty acres of the farm to settle all the debts of the estate. On August 13, 1863 Sarah married Horatio Nelson ALEXANDER of Pemberville, himself three times a widower. Sarah and Nelson had two children and he died 2 Jan. 1866 leaving her with quite a family to raise including children of his previous marriage. Sarah (Morrow) Cable Alexander lived on until December 1892 at Pemberville and in her last years with her daughter Estella at Tolodeo, Ohio. Sarah is buried at Eisenhour Ridge.

This history & genealogy of the Philip & Maria (Brady) Cable family has been compilied from many different types of records. I have compilied the history to the best of my knowledge, and if any mistakes have been made, it was not done by intention, but possibily due to typing error, or information received, that was not correct. Errors in any history and or genealogy are quite surely to happen, as I am sure they have occurred in this one also. Even our U.S. Census Records, and State Records prove to be incorrect many times. I do regret any mistakes that one might find, and would appreciate any corrections. Sources: Pa. , Ohio County Histories, Census, Cemetery records and descendant information.

Compiliers note: Jefferson County Pioneer Days, pg. 146 & 147...GEORGE N. HENRY IDENTIFIED WITH BUSINESS, CIVIC DEVELOPMENT.

The ancestors of the Henry family came to America at an early date and Patrick Henry is said to be connected with this branch of the family. They settled in Pennsylvania and a son, Joshua, was born there. He later came to Jefferson County where he married Miss Ann LEE, d/o James & Margaret Lee whose home was at Costonia. George N. Henry, their son, was long a well known citizen of this city. Of the vaious enterprises whith which he was connected perhaps he is best remembered by our citizens as a member of th firm of MAXWELL & HENRY whose wholesale and retail fruit business was located on the corner of Market and Court streets, where the Olympic theatre now stands. They ahd the largest concern of the kind in this section. We all have our little peculiarities and in the case of George Henry, his was to carry a carnation pink, in his mouth and he was seldom seen without it. Not being a smoker may have been one reason why he carried around his favorite flower. He had a prominent part in civic projects which brought about the extention of Steubenville's residential lines and in the development of suburban territory through building of a traction system. He was interested in the old driving park which is now the beautiful residential section of Ross Park and among the several additions to the city which he laid out or assisted to promote, was the Pleasant Heights addition to the city. He served several terms in city council,lending his influence to communtiy development. For a period of thirty years he conducted the annual distribution of Christmas baskets to the poor, the unknown donor for that period of years being the late Dohrman J. SINCLAIR. George Henry had the finest collection of elk teeth in the world, being an ardent member of the Order of Elks, he attended their conventions in all parts of the country and his prized possession was a coat which was practically covered with eighteen hundred fine specimens of elk teeth. He was also a collector of other curios, guns, etc. Hemarried Miss Mary CABLE, of an old pioneer family. They had one daughter, Clara Henry, who married Will SCOTT, s/o Mr. & Mrs, Winfield Scott of this city. Mrs. Henry is a member of the D.A.R. on the record of her ancestor, Abraham Cable, who is said to have loaned the government of the United States $50,000. when it needed that amount. He was born in Germany 1740, died 1803, Bedford Co. Penn.
