I'm fairly certain, based on this, that this is the correct Jacob - but it does leave:
Two unknown males between 10 & 15, 1 unknown male between 26 & 44, and one unknown female beween 16 & 25
Those unknowns could likely be servants, farm hands, or possibly one of Jacobs children is married and their spouse lives here as well...


Elizabeth married George Stahlnecker in 1804, so it is unlikely that that is her in the 1810 census - although it is possible.  In 1820 George and Elizabeth have followed Jacob to turbot twp where Jacob has relocated and bought substantial property.

1803 - Son Samuel is born
Age: 44

1804 - Daughter Elizabeth marries George Stahlnecker
"I will assume that Elizabeth & George where married in Upper Milford Twp, Northampton Co, PA as her Truckenmiller family lived on their Grist Mill in Upper Mioford near the Berks County Line. Jacob & Maria (Kerchner) Truckenmiller came to Delaware Twp, Northumberland Co, PA from Upper Milford Twp, Northamption County, PA in May of 1811 & two years later Elizabeth & George followed her parents to McEwensville, PA. They had just settled down in May 1813 and her husband George Stahlnecker died before June 26, 1813. She was left to raised her 4 children by herself, I suspect she had her daughter Elizabeth after her husbands death. I'm sure it wasn't easy for Elizabeth to raise her family of 4 in early 1800's, but with the help of her parents, her sisters, Magdalena Seibert, Christina Dieffenderfer, Nancy Derr & Susan Hill & her 4 brothers Solomon, Samuel, Jacob & young George, she managed. Unfortunately her sister Anna Maria Hittle was living in Montgomery County at that time and was not able to help. When George Stahlnecker died 1813 he left everything in the estate to his two sons Samuel & David and nothing for his girls so when Elizabeth died she left everything to her two daughters Mary & Elizabeth. I can just image their mode of travel in 1811 & 1813, did they go by rivers and streams, Wagon trains wheren't an option but possibly a wagon stuffed with all their belongs. Was it pulled by Oxen or by a cow or one horse? You Ask what is a Grist Mill -- I was told it's where you grinded the Grain Dry, But we know the Little Truckenmiller Grist Mill near McEwensville has a beautiful little stream going right thru it. *Tidbit: Upper Milford Twp, is now in Lehigh County, formerly in Northampton County, PA & before that Bucks County, PA." - Patsy Hittle Gore

1806/1807 Around this time Daughter Anna Marie married John Hittle
HISTORY: Anna Maria was born in Upper Milford Township, Northampton County, PA now it's in Lehigh County, she was one of 10 children born to Jacob & Anna Maria Kerchner Truckenmiller & was the granddaughter of Sebastian & Catherine Truckenmiller; Adam & Maria Barbara Kerchner. Maria's five sisters were Elizabeth Stahlnecker, Magdalean Mary Siebert, Christiana Dieffenderfer, Nancy Derr, & Susannah Hill. & her four brothers, Solomon, Jacob K., Samuel & George Truckenmiller. Both Maria's father Jacob & Father-in-law J. Adam Hittle fought for America Freedom in the Revolutionary war. After her marriage to John Hittle they lived back an forth between Upper Milford Twp & Upper Hanover Twp, Montgomery Co., PA; Her parents Jacob & Anna Maria moved to Northumberland Co., PA in 1811, and it wasn't until about 1828 when her family followed them, they settled on a farm in Delaware Twp, which is near McEwensville, Pa. In the fall of 1846 her husband John & son Jacob died during a thyphoid out break. She continued to live with her family near McEwensville until her death, She's buried next to her husband John Hittle & near her parents and sister Elizabeth Stahlnecker. Maria's son George A. Hittle and brother George Truckenmiller moved on to the Prairie State of Illinois, the rest of her children Anna Donahower & Leah Baker lived just over the River in Lewisburg, Union Co., PA, Ellen Voneida moved North to Lycoming County, Sue Keiser and her unmarried Children, Elizabeth, Mary, John & Sarah Hittel all stayed in Delaware Township on the Hittle family farm. Patsy Hittle Gore

History of Northumberland Co PA; Bell, pub. 1894; Biographical Sketches - SUNBURY.

GEORGE HILL, attorney at law, was born in Lycoming county, Pennsylvania, August 3, 1821, and acquired an education at the common schools and a classical institute taught by Samuel S. Shedden, a Presbyterian divine. He began the study of law at Milton under James Pollock, afterward a member of the national Congress, but a change in circumstances led him to Union county, where he taught school and finished his legal studies under Absalom Swineford. He was admitted to the bar in August, 1848. Entering at once into practice he remained at Selinsgrove from 1849 to 1858, and in the spring of the last named year came to Sunbury. Here he has been for over thirty years a lawyer of recognized ability and a citizen of high repute. He has always been a Democrat; ever active in the promotion of others, for himself he has sought no political preferment, and has for some years taken no active part in politics. As a Mason Mr. Hill is also prominent. He is a member of the local lodge and chapter. Mastering the principles of those bodies he has passed into the higher dispensation of the commandery and consistory at Bloomsburg. In religious matters too he takes a deep concern and belongs to the Reformed church. He was first married at Selinsgrove in December, 1848, to Martha C. BUEHLER, who died in 1870, leaving the following children: Ferdinand K.; J. Nevin; Mary S., now the wife of J. Z. GERHARD, M D., superintendent of the State lunatic hospital, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Samuel Ambrose, deceased; William Herbert, and Charles H. In June, 1871, he married Sue E. KIRLIN, of Middletown, Pennsylvania. Mr. Hill's parents were Daniel and Susan (Truckenmiller) HILL, natives of Pennsylvania, and of Scotch-Irish and German descent, respectively. The senior Mr. HILL, a farmer, died when his son George was only seven years old; his widow and three children moved to this county, where she died in 1865 aged sixty-five years. The Grandfather Hill was a Revolutionary soldier. p.820.

1834 Son George married Martha LaShall

MARRIAGE: 13 Sept 1834 George Truckenmilller of Turbot Twp & Martha Lashell of Buffalo Twp. Source: p.41 Newspaper Abstract of "Miltonian" Lontz, 1980.* McEwenville Lib. *1993c. [2].  FYI: Turbot Twp is in Northumberland County, PA & Buffalo Twp is in Union Co, PA 

 George Lashells, Sr. owned a tavern on the Gettysburg/York Turnpike and was the first sherriff of Gettysburg, PA. He had 15 children and they lived in Union and Adams County, PA. In 1844-1845 a group of families moved from Union and Adams Counties to Stephenson County, Illinois. These families were Lashells, Truckenmiller, Hoy, Flickinger, Aurand, Wingert (Windgard) and others. The families were friends in PA and intermarried. I imagine that due to the close ties and friendships they wanted to move together. In some of the obits I have run across there are stories of the wagon train coming to Stephenson County. History says  they started the trek with ox and horses teams westward 

 George Lashells, Jr. bought land in Stephenson County and he platted the town of Loran. Most of the families that I mentioned stayed in Loran and around Loran for many years. They later began to spread into Carroll County, Illinois to Shannon, Lanark, Mt. Carroll and Savanna. Some of them moved to Freeport in Stephenson County, Illinois. by Jennifer Race-Sanders, a Lashells researcher 


George is the only child of Jacob to go west.  All of the other children lived and died in the general area of the homestead and mill.


THE TRUCKENMILLER FAMILY.   The TRUCKENMILLERS originated in Union County, central Pennsylvania, where Lewisburg the county seat, is the site of a federal prison, also Bucknell University. Much farmland there is rough and rocky so tidings of the fertile prairies of Illinois got around by word of mouth starting a trek of ox and horses teams westward.
   George & Martha LaSHELLE TRUCKENMILLER were born in 1809 & 1812 respectively, had six sons and three daughters, among them Edward Gary TRUCKENMILLER, the fourth child, born in 1842 in Union County, the family came west in 1847 when Edward was five years old, settling around Loran north of Cherry Grove township in Stephenson county.  The family history revels that Edward enlisted at age 18 in the Illinois Infantry (which had three Stephenson county companies, two Carroll, and five Ogle) and that Edward's Company, was company F. apparently one of the Stephenson county companies, since the two Carroll county companies were company C later commanded by Captain Hawk, the Carroll county congressman, and Company I led by Hawk's close friend, Captain E. T. E. Becker. The 92nd saw some of the hardest fighting of the Civil War, but Edward TRUCKENMILLER came back and after an honorable discharge married Sarah HOY in 1868, moving from Loran to the farm north of Mt. CARROLL, near the old Arnolds Grove School.

   In 1882, the TRUCKENMILLERS moved to a farm in Cherry Grove Township now Tenanted by the Walter Kent and Sheldon Moll Families.

  The TRUCKENMILLERS ten children included Emma who married a Van Brocklin, Oliver, Carried (Wolford),  Mary (Schneider), Lulu (Lobman), George, Howard, Grover (Johnny), Charles and Edward. The details of the family's life on the farm are unrecorded but the parents moved to Shannon in 1906 and lived in the house now occupied by the Vernon Linker family. The children farmed in the Lanark and Shannon communities during the intervening years except Carrie, Lulu and Charles, and after Sarah Hoy TRUCKENMILLER's death in 1913, Edward continued living as a widower in Shannon until he passed on in 1935 at 93 years of age. The brief letter listing some details of the family tree disclosed that one son, Edward G. Truckenmiller, is living in Lanark , as of Aug 16, 1968. ... [Continues with the history of Edwards's children]. p.384. [6]


   Robert TRUCKENMILLER seventh child of George and Martha, married Nettie SHAUT (Shout?) in 1881 lived in Shannon and engaged in Poulty marketing. He had one son, Mervin TRUCKENMILLER. He married Sadie MESSNER whose two children were Dorothy TRUCKENMILLER of Shannon and Robert T. of Freeport. p.384. [6].

Jacob, in Floyd's History of Northumberland County
Jacob Truckenmiller, evidently son of Sebastian, was born Aug. 29,
1759, in lower Berks county, and came to Northumberland county before
the Revolution, settling in Delaware township, where his descendants
still live. He was the pioneer of the family in this immediate locality,
and being a millwright and miller by calling built the original
Truckenmiller mill, selecting the site now owned by his great-grandson,
Valentine S. Truckenmiller. He died Aug. 23, 1823, at McEwensville and
is buried there, in the old upper cemetery. In religion he was a
Lutheran. His account, entered Sept. 9, 1823, in Will Book 2, page 442,
mentions sons Jacob, Solomon, George, Samuel, and also Mrs. Mary
Truckenmiller, probably his wife. The executors were Solomon
Truckenmiller and Henry Reader. The account was filed in the Register's
office.  As shown by tombstone records, Jacob's wife was named
Annamaria, and she was born Jan. 16, 1763, and died July 27, 1843. Their
children were: Solomon, mentioned below; Jacob, born March 22, 1790,
who died April 15, 1880 (his wife, Sarah, died Oct. 3, 1873, aged
seventy-six years, one month, fifteen days); George; and Samuel, born in

1803, who died in 1883 (his wife, Sarah, born in 1805, died in 1895).
