     Peter Holben was born on 31 July 1775. He In 1804 , the Lynn Twp., Northampton County, Holbens moved toNorthumberland County, Upper Mahanoy Twp., 50 miles to the West. Amongthem were Jacob II, his wife, Catherine, and their children, John,Peter, Daniel, and at least one daughter, Susanna, and the newlywed,Jacob III. In1820, Peter's dad, Jacob II, died at the age of 72. Hisdeath caused the group to remember his deed/dower agreement ofFebruary 6, 1804 leaving his farm in Lynn Twp., Northampton County tohis sons Christian and Jacob. On August 12, 1820 the agreement dated 6February 1804 was recorded in Northumberland County. Before the estateof Jacob II could be settled, Jacob the III, the administrator, diedunexpectedly, intestate. He left a widow, Elizabeth, and seven minorchildren. Elizabeth waived her right to be administratrix and thecourt appointed Jacob's brothers, John and Daniel, as administratorsas well as de bonis non of the yet unsettled estate of old Jacob II.By the time the estate was distributed and settled in 1830, PeterHolben had moved from the area.

In April1995, I received papers from the National Archives regarding SamuelHolben's application for a pension based on his Civil War Service.Samuel was a Private in Co. M, 2nd Pa. Volunteer Cavalry, PensionClaim No. 717,236. Included in the packet was an affidavit of JacobGruber (Note: Is this guy a relative of Samuel's wife?), a resident ofSeigle, Jefferson County, Pa. dated August 6, 1889. Jacob states thathe has known Samuel for 70 ? years, that he was sound and healthy atthe time of his enlistment, that he saw him in the hospital atKittaning with rheumatism, that he got the rheumatism standing guard,and that he never had rheumatism before his military service. Twoother undated affidavits prepared by neighbors, Jacob Markle and JacobSchreckuyosh?, residing in Pierce, Armstrong County, Pa. are included.Both state that they knew Samuel as sound and able before he enlistedin October 1861 and that since his discharge he has had rheumatismwhich has disabled him fully one half from manual labor. Also includedis a Declaration for Original Invalid Pension form, partiallycompleted by Samuel Holben. It states that during his military servicehe contracted rheumatism caused by exposure. He was in the hospital atCamp Orr, Kittanning, Armstrong Co., Pa. and was treated by hisregimental surgeon, Dr. McCullough for rheumatism from which he hassuffered ever since. Since leaving the service he says he has been afarmer residing at Pierce, Armstrong County, Pa. Witnesses whoverified his identity were Tobias Schick and Jacob Holben ofBrookville ?, Pa. The date was 24 June 1889. A paper in the file fromthe Department on the Interior, Bureau of Pensions dated September 13,1889 states the Samuel Holben enlisted October 1st, 1861 and wasdischarged at Camp Orr, Pa. November 5, 1861. While serving in the 2ndRegiment Pa. Cav he was disabled by rheumatism- time and place notstated. Another paper from the War Department, Record and PensionDivision, dated 8 November 1889, states Samuel Holben was enrolled onthe 1st day of October 1861, at Salem?, in Co. M, 2nd Regiment ofPenna Cav Volunteers to serve 3 years during the war. On the Musterroll of Co. M of that regiment for the months of November and December1861, he is reported discharged by physician date and place not given,muster roll of company not on file. Investigation fails to elicitfurther record of this man's discharge than is stated on Companyrolls. A letter dated October 6, 1906 addressed to Samuel J. Holben,Freeport, R.D. 2, Pa. states that further action could not be taken onyour claim because the records of the War Department failed to showyour date of discharge. There is no record to indicate that a pensionwas approved.
He died on 16 April 1894 at Jefferson, Pennsylvania, USA, at age 74. He was buried on 18 April 1894 at Jefferson, Pennsylvania, USA.
