NOTES: on John Henry Nachand

John Henry Nachand was born in Bavaria, Germany,in 1811 and grew to manhood in his native country. In 1836, he emigrated to New York, and resided variously in Ohio, New Orleans and Indiana, working at the wagon maker's and carpenter trade. In 1837,he married Miss Catherine Shafer, a native of Alsace, Germany. On August 29, 1840, at the age of 29, John applied for Intent to be naturalized in St. Louis Missouri. In the Spring of 1847, John and his wife Catherine and their son Henry at the age of five, started across the plains to Oregon. They traveled in covered wagon, with three yoke of oxen and one yoke of cows, the latter of which were utilized in the double capacity of a team and to provide nourishment for the family. They came with a large compaany, and aside from being annoyed by the Indians, who tried to steal their cattle, they had a safe journey. Arriving at their destination, in November, John Henry and his family settled on a portion of the straight donation claim,located along the banks of the Willamette River, a mile and a half below Oregon City, Oregon. On this he built a log cabin, and commenced to work at his trade as a wagon maker. As time passed and his means allowed, he added to his land, and engaged in the production of vegatables of all kinds, later adding the production of fruit to his other enterprises, for all of which he found a ready and remunerative market in Portland and Oregon City and in San Francisco. In 1849, the gold excitement took John and his family by land to California where he worked in the mines for a short time, and in 1850, he was at work at his trade in the state of California at Sacramento, when the great flood of that year drove them out of the city into the country. In 1852, the family returned by sea to Oregon, where John resumed his former occupation, he greatly prospered in his undertaking, and accumulating an ample fortune for himself and his family. In July , 1885, this truly good man died, aged seventy five years. He was extremely popular with his neighbors and with all who knew him, because of his quiet industrious and kindly ways, and his death were universally lamented.

NOTES: on John Philip Nachand

John Philip Nachand

MARY ANN HEWIT on 11/05/1848 in Benton County, Lincoln, Missouri (I believe that Mary Ann was born in New York aprox. circa 1826)

(born in Virginia, Circa 1840)
Lucy Jane was born in Virginia. I believe that she had two brothers by the names of Andrew & William Windland. Andrew and William were both married in Cahoun County, Illinois with-in two years of each other. Andrew married Lucy Calvin on 11 JUL 1854 and William married Elizabeth Strickland on 16 MAY 1855. They would have been born aprox. 1834 & 1835.

John P. Nachard (sp) purchased 40.75 acres at .50ct, total price was $20.37 on 06/10/1847 in Calhoun at Township 11S, Range 02 W, Meridian 4 Lot 4 section 16

Philip was granted naturalazation on November 05, 1850 in Illinois. Information taken from Copy of Naturalazation Records from Madison County Clerk.

John P. Nachand for 75 dollars sold to John Lewison September 3, 1852, a parcel of land to wit house and Lot No. 1 in public square of Gilead. I assume that John P was still married to Mary Ann Hewit.

On the 1860 census of Calhoun County had J. P. Nachand age 36 and son Peter 9 born in IL. (born 1851) Ages on census for J. P. Nachand were 1860 age 36-1870 age 59 and 1880 age 65 (Information from Mildred Maguire)

John P. Nachand bought on June 15, 1860 from Benjamin and Helen Flehild Lot No. 5 in Block No. 3 in the town of Hardin. He was married to Lucy Jane Windland nine days later.

John Philip served as Justice of the Peace in Calhoun County from 1869 to 1875.

I was told by dad that before his Grandfather John Philip Nachand came to America that the spelling of the last name was Nachant spelling with a (t) at the end instead of a (d). I have found many spellings of this last name, they are: Nachant, Nashan, Nahshan, Nashant, Nashand, Nashend, Nachandt. But as of yet cannot conncet any Nachant to this family.

Clipping from Aprox 1896 Hardin Calhoun Illinois Newspaper:
The old an honorable citizen, Philip Nachand, celebrated his 81st. birthday last Tuesday. Mr. Nachand came to this county in 1842. At present he is enjoying good health, but age and labor has changed the strong and manley form and now in his decreptitude he is cheerful and is patiently awaiting the final summons.
