  • Notes 
    • The following account is quoted from Judge Evan P. Middleton's HISTORY OF CHAMPAIGN CO., OHIO, Vol. II, published by Bowen & Co., 1917, pp. 355-356. "The Mast family in America is descended from Bishop Jacob Mast, a leader in the Mennonite church, a Swiss by birth, who was born in 1738 and who was early orphaned. While he was still in his boyhood, he came to this country from Switzerland (from the port of Rotterdam) with his four sisters and a younger brother, John, the children being in the care of their benevolent uncle, Johannes Mast, and settled in Berks County, Pennsylvania, where the family is still influentially represented. It was on Nov. 3, 1750, that the party landed from the ship "Brotherhood," at the port of Philadelphia, young Jacob Mast, being then 12 years of age. They joined the Amish Mennonites in Berks County and there the lad grew to manhood firmly grounded in the simple faith of his father and his daily associates. There he married Magdalene Holly and there he established his home---(He was) elected in 1788 (in the Amish Mennonite Church in Conestoga, PA) to serve as bishop---(He) died in 1808 (and was buried where) Pine Grove Cemetery (now is)." I have included this account under Jacob Mast's father's data because of the invaluable data that can be gained about the rest of the family from it.
