SPEIDEL-Another of Black Bock's oldest settlers has gone to join the great majority on the other side of Jordan. Joseph Speidel. was one of the pioneers of Black Rock. and has lived to see the place grow from a wilderness to what it is at the present time. But his call came Monday at 5 p. m., and he passed peacefully away at his residence, 232 Dearborn street. Six weeks before his daughter Lena died, and this seemed to affect him considerably, as he pined away gradually since that time, and three weeks ago took to his bed. At the time of his death he was aged 75 years, 8 months and 10 days. Joseph Speidel was born in Wertemburg [handwritten Alsaise], Germany, but came to Black Eock over 54 years ago, when there was very. little civilization here and before there was, any church. He was married in the o!d St. Louis' church on Main street Sept. 8, 1846. Some years ago he kept a blacksmith shop where Striker's jewelry store now is on Niagara street, between Hamilton and Amherst streets. When St-Francis Xavier's church was built he was one of the leading spirits in the work, and he was a charter member and helped to organize the St. Francis Xavier Aid Society. He leaves to mourn his loss a widow, six sons, and three daughters. One son, Joseph, and two daughters are in California and the other daughter in St, Louis, Mo. The others reside in Black Rock and Buffalo. The funeral took place Thursday, morning, the remains being laid away in the River Road burying ground.

222 Central Baptist Church - Ithamar Conkey was Its First Organist


Plaque was sponsored by members of Central Baptist Church. Church is Located on Union Square. Central Baptist Church was founded in 1840 and under the zeal and energy of Rev. Miner G. Clarke grew rapidly to over 400 members. The church’s first organist, Ithamar Conkey, composed the music to “In the Cross of Christ I Glory” in 1849. William Howard Doane, the prominent hymn writer, was baptized in the church in 1851. The present edifice was constructed on this site in 1891 at a cost of $68,300 and in 1899, Bushnell Chapel, since replaced in 1978, was erected. The present Sunday school, known originally as the “Gilbert Property,” was purchased in 1925 and subsequently joined to the church by an office wing, largely through the efforts of Charles D. and Charles F. Noyes. The cornerstone of the present building was laid in 1891, “that upon it may stand for years to come a temple that shall be open to all who desire to worship the God of our Fathers, whether they be rich or poor, high or low, home or foreign born, and without respect to races or conditions, all shall be alike, welcome.” source:

239 Comment to Quackenbosch Coad of Arms: posted by RMLimberg -- "Coat of Arms & Motto (translation): Quackenbush is a Dutch name. The first recorded use of the Quackenbush coat of arms was in 1529 by Dirk Aelbertszoon van Quackenbosch, registered in the Leiden Armorial (1785). The motto "Vrede in Rykdom" (Peace in Wealth) was first used by his grandson Gerrit Aelbertszoon van Quackenbosch in 1578.

Under the rules of heraldry, the right to bear a coat of arms passes only to the direct descendants of the bearer. Because some crucial links in the family history have been lost over the centuries, the North American Quackenbush family cannot technically use the coat of arms.

All available records indicate that every Quackenbush in North America can ultimately be traced back to an immigrant name Pieter Quackenbosch who came to New Netherland (later called New York) in 1653 aboard the ship Graft. Pieter was born in Oegstgeesst Holland circa 1614. The modern village of Oesgstgeest is a suburb of Leiden in South Holland.

In Holland the prefix van does not necessarily imply nobility or high social stature the way the German prefix von does- it simply means 'from' or 'of'. Literally translated, the name Pieter van Quackenbosch probably means something like "Peter from the forest of the croaking frogs".

A dictionary search of modern Dutch reveals that the word "bosch" means "forest" while "kwaken" is the sound made by frogs or crows. At least one translator believes "kwaken" can also refer to the "quack" sound made by ducks. Serious students of the Dutch language should probably do their research elsewhere.

Known spelling variations are Quackenbos, Quackenboss, Quakkelbosch, Quakenbush, Qualkinbush, and Kwakkenbos.The anglicized "Quackenbush" spelling is the most common in North America. The Amersterdam telephone directory presently lists a number of people using the modern Dutch spelling of "Kwakkenbos".

A detailed history of the origin of the name Quackenbush can be found in the book The Quackenbush Family in America, Copyright 1987 by Gail Richard Quackenbush, published by the Henington Publishing Company in Wolfe City Texas. Anyone interested in the family genealogy should have a copy of this excellent book.
