      THE HISTORY OF READING, OHIO 1794 - 2001
      Internet Source:

      The-History-of.htm
      "Settlement Of Voorhees Town
      In 1794, Abraham Voorhees, Sr. ...from.....through the mountains ofPennsylvania, down the Ohio River to present day Cincinnati. ...tothe banks of the Mill Creek in Sycamore Township via an Indian trailthen known as the "Great Road." This trail extended from Kentucky tothe Great Lakes.
      Shortly after the Voorhees settled, Harvey (Henry) Redinbo fromReading, Pennsylvania, visited the area. He liked what he saw andproceeded to purchase the south half of section 27 (30 Aug 1795) fromJohn Cleves Symmes. In the spring of 1795, Redinbo with his wifeMargaret and their family of eight sons and three daughters came totake possession of his purchase. One son drowned during the arduousjourney. (Solomon) After seeing the land, Redinbo was very upset thatit was not located in the fertile flat lands as was the Voorheesproperty. His purchase was hilly terrain in the area, on the East sideof Reading, bounded by what we now know as Hunt Road and ColumbiaAvenue. Believing that he had been defrauded, Redinbo argued for abetter tract, but to no avail. He had no choice but to settle thetitled land. The family cleared the land, constructed a large logcabin and began to develop the land.
      After enduring early frontier hardships, they too succeeded asfarmers. Henry Redinbo lived there until his death in 1828 or 1829 atthe age of 94.
      Neither the Voorhee?s nor the Redinbo?s experienced serious problemswith the Indians. However, during the first few years, food and otherprovisions were in short supply and occasionally exhausted. Very soonafter the settlement was established, other settlers began moving intothe area. It was around this time when, at Redinbo?s suggestion, thename of the town was changed from Voorhees Town to Reading.
      A genealogy search of the Redinbo Family revealed that the spelling ofthe name as recorded in the Reading History books is not the originalspelling. The name was Henry Redinbaugh. It seems that, at some point,John, one of Henry?s sons changed the spelling to Redenbo. It isrecoreded in Reading as Redinbo.

      Internet Source:http://www.heritagepursuit.com/Hamilton/HamiltonChapXXXVI.htm
      Villages:
      In the early spring of 1795 the Voorhees settlement was reinforced bythe arrival of the Redinbo family, consisting of Henry and MargaretRedinbo and their eleven children, viz., Solomon, Frederick, John,Philip, Samuel, Andrew, Henry, Adam, Ann, Barbara, and Margaret. Mr.Olden, from whose sketches these facts are derived, states that theywere from Reading, Berks County, Pennsylvania, and that Solomon wasdrowned while crossing the Schuylkill river, just as they set out ontheir departure for the West. The Redinbos located upon the southernhalf of section 27, and constructed their improvements on laudsubsequently owned by Dr. Thomas Wright.
      Frederick and John Redinbo also built cabins on their father's lands.And about the year 1798 Abraham Voorhees laid out the town of Reading,although the plat was not recorded until 1804. It was first calledVoorheestown, but at the suggestion of Henry Redinbo it was changed toReading, in honor of his native place in Pennsylvania."

      ?From Historical Sketches and Early ___in essenes of Hamilton County,Ohio by J.J. Oldin, in 1882, on pages 119-120-a sketch on Vorhees(Voorhees) Settlement. The Vorhees family, including sons - in - law,were sufficiently numbered to form a self sustaining community. Itwas in the fall of 1794 that they moved their families out upon theirimprovements, and but a few months afterwards another large familyjoined their settlement.
      Henry Redinbo and his wife Margaret are Pennsylvania Germans residingnear the town of Reading in Berk County. They came to the territoryin spring of 1795, and settled the south half of section 27, adjoiningthe Vorhees? section on the west.
      On the 13th day of August following, Mr. Redinbo obtained a deed forhis lands from Judge Symmes. This couple brought the entire familywith them, consisting of eleven children, eight sons and threedaughters nearly all of who are grown men and women. The sons wereSolomon, Frederick, John, Phillip, Samuel, Andrew, Henry and Adam, andthe daughters Ann, Barbara, and Margaret. They built log cabin andborn on the lands now belonging to the estate of Dr. Thomas Wright?(1960)?. The writer, ?(Mr. Olden)? has a distinct recollection ofthese buildings and also of the old couple Henry and Margaret Redinbo. Henry and Margaret
      Redinbo both lived to the great age of ninety-four years and both diedwithin the same year, 1828-1829. They were buried near the west lineof their farm, in a northwest direction from the draying (sp) house.Their son, Solomon Redinbo was drowned while crossing Schuylkill Riverin coming to the Miami Country (I wonder if she meant, ?County??)
      Page 122 - Frederick and John Redinbo also built cabins on theirfather?s lands. And about the year 1798, Abraham Vorhees laid out thetown of Reading although plat not recorded till 1804. It was firstcalled Vorheestown, Ohio [Page 2 of notes] at the suggestion of HenryRedinbo, it was changed to Reading, in honor of his native place inPennsylvania.?
      From Ford History of Hamilton County, Ohio, 1881, p 390, ?Vorhees(Voorhees) station was situated on section 33, near present towns ofLockland and Reading. It was not a blockhouse, or even stockade, buta large, strong, log cabin, which answered for both residence anddefense, and was frequently mentioned, in early times as VorheesStation. It was a strong gamily, almost enough in itself to make aneffective garrison. Abraham Vorhees was the head and front of it, andwith him were his sons - in - law, Thomas Higgins and John Rynearson,with their families, and his five sons, Abraham, Miney, Garrett, John,and Jacob. They began their improvements in spring of 1794 and infall of same year moved their families to the station. They were soonafter joined by another and still larger family, nearly all of themadult persons. The parents were Henry and Margaret Redinbo, of thePennsylvania German stock, who removed from Reading, that state, inthe spring of 1795; their eight sons were Solomon (drowned in thejourney westward), Frederick, John, Phillip, Samuel, Andrew, Henry,and Adam; and the daughters were Ann, Barbara, and Margaret. InAugust of same year they obtained a deed from Judge Symmes of thesouth half of section 27, west of the Vorhees tract, built a cabin andlog barn on property. (Owned by Dr. Thomas Wright 1960) and theresettled. The parents both lived to the age of ninety-four years, anddied in same year, 1828 or 1829. ----- The elder Vorhees laid outupon his land the adjacent village of Reading about 1798, and had itfirst called Vorheestown, but allowed it afterward to be named Readingand the suggestion of Henry Redinbo, from latter?s birthplace (?) inthe Keystone state.? I think Henry was born in Germany 1734/35.
      These two articles in the Hamilton County, Ohio histories have almostidentical information, so feel sure it is factual and true.

      "Check out this site at the PA State Archives. It's patent indexesand lists the names given to the farms. This one connects a HenryReidinbough with a George Reidenboch. I think the German name for thefarm would be Redenbaugh cow pasture, if it's kovain. Or maybe thatisn't kovain by whatever spelling but housin, which would be house Isuppose.

      "But here's George Raudenbusch in 1734! No Henry. Maybe the deed wasrecorded for land previously sold or given."

      Sharon [Per Email of Redenbaugh Group dated Saturday, July 21, 20076:28 PM]

      "What strikes me about this patent, is that it is not in itself anoriginal grant from the government, as we define land patents instates surveyed after the Revolution. The warrantor was HenryReidenbough, but he is not the government or its agent. So now wehave to look for the person(s) from whom Henry acquired it. Maybe itis part of the original Wm Penn purchase, though I think Wm Penn diedmuch before this. His sons took over for him, and I can't rememberwhen they died. But it looks as if Henry Reidenbough got the landfrom either Wm Penn's heirs or the English government. I haven'tlooked into how land was sold by the English, except general knowledgeof the acreage Penn received."

      "The origins of the Proprietary Land Office may be traced to 1682 whenWilliam Penn appointed Thomas Holme Surveyor General. Under aconstantly evolving set of procedures and relationships, the SurveyorGeneral cooperated with the Secretary of Proprietary Affairs, a Masterof Rolls, a Receiver General, and Commissioners of Property inconducting the sale of Pennsylvania lands. Acting collectively, thevarious officers who comprised the Land Office were responsible foraccepting applications, issuing warrants, surveying tracts, verifyingreturns of survey and granting patents for tracts of land inPennsylvania. By 1699 the Land Office was operating from SamuelCarpenter's Philadelphia residence, sometimes called the Slate RoofHouse, where William Penn and Secretary of Proprietary Affairs JamesLogan then resided. The Land Office was moved to Clark's Hall whenDeputy Governor John Evans arrived in Philadelphia in 1704. WhenWilliam Penn's heirs, Thomas and John Penn, acted as Commissioners ofProperty from 1733-1741 they conducted Land Office business from theirhome. Upon their return to England, the Penn brothers abolished thepositions of Commissioners of Property and delegated responsibilityfor signing warrants and patents to the Deputy Governor. The Secretaryof Provincial Affairs began conducting land office business from roomsin the west wing of the new State House, the present day IndependenceHall, during the early 1740s. "

      Hi
      Sorry I have been out of touch . One of the last items I brought uplast year was before my computer crashed was Kem?s papers on thevarious families . I completed a 1790 census in Berks/ Lancastercounties and thought I e-mailed copies. I had included every name ofimportance to our group but also those of our other families. I willlook harder for the zip disk
      The oldest Church records I found were there too. I includedLancaster because most of the area to become PA counties was lumped asLancaster the British governing center.
      It encompassed 100 mills in every direction; Part of south and eastarea were still listed as Virginia. North and east New Jersey. at thattime . I hadn?t determined yet where the British records were keptif at all after the revolution or sent away with the British.
      From other families I have learned the port of embark and the nationwhere the passenger ship was registered was part of the spelling namesconfusion. Some of the Palatine immigrants didn?t sail from Germanports but headed south to a French port and ship then went to Hollandfrom there to the US on British ships. If the ship was British nameswill include all the extra vowels and letters the English languageuses such as ough added to a name that could have been Bach. Dutchusually had oek or H o in spelling. The French Rad and so on.. Aperson who couldn?t write usually ended up with what ever the shipmanifest spelled him.
      We are fairly positive the church record listing the names of threechildren spelled Redabach or redenbach was our Henry and Marget?sfamily.
      I found two families who could have been spelled Haney after theBritish left. Hennig and Henny.
      For example, My GG grandfather had three name changes upon leavingDenmark
      Jens son of lars Jorgen?s son became Jens Larsen until he reached Saltlake City several years later . The church told him that doesn?tdefine who you are so he was to be identified with his grandfather andbecame Jens Larsen Jorgensen. That name wasn?t American enough for thenaturalization officials and he was renamed James Larsen Johnsen.Things got really confusing when his first family were Larsen and thesecond was Jorgensen and Grandma?s name was Johnson. While he playedat polygamy.
      One reason many families moved west centered around the beginningrevolution.. When Washington nearly lost the war at Brandywine from aflank attack. He had to retreat losing Philadelphia because he didn?thave protection at this back or for supply lines. In regroup he sentmen to the area now Berks County and Lancaster County; with Readingwith their families to protect that supply line. I studied the battleof Brandywine because of the story of n Margaretha Haney ( I think)huddled in her rocker with cannons booming for hours crying, ? Oh! MyStophern ! My Stophen,? (Her son fighting.). Somewhere in that studyI found Frederich Redenbaugh, 19, who settled there before joining hisparents. Once again find the zip.
