      Text: The Gorgas Family. Descendants of John Psyche Rittenhouse G orgas of Germantown. By Mildred Goshow. Roxborough, Philade lphia 1966...Page 64.
      Catherine Gorgas, daughter of Jacob Gorgas and Catherine Ho rtter, was married at the Reformed Church of Germantown, Ma y 17, 1803.

      There have been no wills or deeds located. Children of Will iam and Catherine Gorgas were. Ann Wunder, b. April 2, 1804 . George E. Wunder, b. March 29, 1807. Samuel Gorgas Wunder , b. March 29, 1809. Jacob Wunder, b. July 31, 1811. Willia m Wunder, Jr., b. August 26, 1816. Mary Wunder, b. Januar y 23, 1818.

      All were baptized in Germantown. Paul Kripner married Susan na Head in 1762. This interest in William Van Akin's famil y continued. Paul Kripner "advanced in years" in years.(ag e 80 at death in April, 1776). Provided in his will legacie s of 25 pounds each to Ann, Susanna and Margaret and 150 po unds to Paul, children of William Van Akin, deceased. It i s surprising to find that Susanna Kripner also provided fo r them in her will, proved November, 1793, by devising 8 ac res of land in Germantown Township to Ann and Margaret an d a legacy of 150 pounds to Susanna Beck, daughters of Will iam Van Akin, deceased, She did not mention Paul.

      After the death of William VanAken, it is probable that Mar y's father John Gorgas, supported her and her family. Thi s would explain why she did not receive a full share of hi s estate on the same basis as the other nine children. Joh n Gorgas provided, by will, a home-the right to live in a s long as she lived in " a small tenement in Germantown Twp , on the west side of Germantown Main Street, where Mary Su nday now dwelleth, together with the garden formally let wi th said tenement." In partition of the real estate of Joh n Gorgas, among his nine children (excluding Mary). in 1782 , this house was allotted to Mary's half brother, Joseph Go rgas, subject to the estate for life of Mary VanAkin. Joh n Gorgas also provided Mary with an income for life-the int erest on 100 pounds, or, if necessary her support, part o f the principal, the balance left at her death to be divide d among her children. On Nov 18, 1851, this property was d eeded to Peter Gorgas and his wife, after the death of Jose ph Gorgas.

      Children of William Van Aken and his wife Mary Gorgas.,
      1. Ann Van Aken, married George Wunder, victualler of Germa ntown he died November 6, 1825, age 68 yrs 2 days.

      2. Susannah Van Aken, probably married Beck.

      3. Margaret Van Akin d. June 26, 1850, in her 86th year, ma rried Joseph Starne, Jr. of Roxborough Twp, later of Northe rn Liberties, Philadelphia County. b. Sept 12, 1762 d. Se p 27, 1826, in his 64th year.

      4. Paul Van Aken, married Elizabeth, step daughter of Conra d Ax of Frankford Borough, Philadelphia County.

      Other property of Catherine Hortter Gorgas was sold to Jose ph Wise, but sales were never recorded. It is necessary t o mention that the wills of both Conrad Ax and Beck were wi tnessed by George Wunder. Parts of this are the work of Mil dred Goshow who was researching the Gorgas family and I hav e added other parts to thread the information together. Th e two children of George Wunder and Anne VanAken that we ha ve documented are Paul Vanakin Wunder and Samuel Henry Wund er. Paul married Barbara Ritthouse and Samuel married firs t Sarah Unknown and second wife Catherine Wartman. Willia m Wunder who married Catherine Gorgas has some documentatio n.

      William Wunder may have been the William Wunder, weaver, Sh arpnack Street, who was listed in the Germantown section o f the Philadelphia directory in 1854.

      Text: The Gorgas Family. Descendants of John Psyche Rittenhouse G orgas of Germantown. By Mildred Goshow. Roxborough, Philade lphia 1966...Page 64.
      Catherine Gorgas, daughter of Jacob Gorgas and Catherine Ho rtter, was married at the Reformed Church of Germantown, Ma y 17, 1803.

      There have been no wills or deeds located. Children of Will iam and Catherine Gorgas were. Ann Wunder, b. April 2, 1804 . George E. Wunder, b. March 29, 1807. Samuel Gorgas Wunder , b. March 29, 1809. Jacob Wunder, b. July 31, 1811. Willia m Wunder, Jr., b. August 26, 1816. Mary Wunder, b. Januar y 23, 1818.

      All were baptized in Germantown. Paul Kripner married Susan na Head in 1762. This interest in William Van Akin's famil y continued. Paul Kripner "advanced in years" in years.(ag e 80 at death in April, 1776). Provided in his will legacie s of 25 pounds each to Ann, Susanna and Margaret and 150 po unds to Paul, children of William Van Akin, deceased. It i s surprising to find that Susanna Kripner also provided fo r them in her will, proved November, 1793, by devising 8 ac res of land in Germantown Township to Ann and Margaret an d a legacy of 150 pounds to Susanna Beck, daughters of Will iam Van Akin, deceased, She did not mention Paul.

      After the death of William VanAken, it is probable that Mar y's father John Gorgas, supported her and her family. Thi s would explain why she did not receive a full share of hi s estate on the same basis as the other nine children. Joh n Gorgas provided, by will, a home-the right to live in a s long as she lived in " a small tenement in Germantown Twp , on the west side of Germantown Main Street, where Mary Su nday now dwelleth, together with the garden formally let wi th said tenement." In partition of the real estate of Joh n Gorgas, among his nine children (excluding Mary). in 1782 , this house was allotted to Mary's half brother, Joseph Go rgas, subject to the estate for life of Mary VanAkin. Joh n Gorgas also provided Mary with an income for life-the int erest on 100 pounds, or, if necessary her support, part o f the principal, the balance left at her death to be divide d among her children. On Nov 18, 1851, this property was d eeded to Peter Gorgas and his wife, after the death of Jose ph Gorgas.

      Children of William Van Aken and his wife Mary Gorgas.,
      1. Ann Van Aken, married George Wunder, victualler of Germa ntown he died November 6, 1825, age 68 yrs 2 days.

      2. Susannah Van Aken, probably married Beck.

      3. Margaret Van Akin d. June 26, 1850, in her 86th year, ma rried Joseph Starne, Jr. of Roxborough Twp, later of Northe rn Liberties, Philadelphia County. b. Sept 12, 1762 d. Se p 27, 1826, in his 64th year.

      4. Paul Van Aken, married Elizabeth, step daughter of Conra d Ax of Frankford Borough, Philadelphia County.

      Other property of Catherine Hortter Gorgas was sold to Jose ph Wise, but sales were never recorded. It is necessary t o mention that the wills of both Conrad Ax and Beck were wi tnessed by George Wunder. Parts of this are the work of Mil dred Goshow who was researching the Gorgas family and I hav e added other parts to thread the information together. Th e two children of George Wunder and Anne VanAken that we ha ve documented are Paul Vanakin Wunder and Samuel Henry Wund er. Paul married Barbara Ritthouse and Samuel married firs t Sarah Unknown and second wife Catherine Wartman. Willia m Wunder who married Catherine Gorgas has some documentatio n.

      William Wunder may have been the William Wunder, weaver, Sh arpnack Street, who was listed in the Germantown section o f the Philadelphia directory in 1854.

      Hi! I'll try to help all that I can!
      I really wish the WUNDERS had used different first name s - there are
      more Williams, Georges & Jacobs running around!!
      From my files on Wunder, this is what I can find that ha s Van Aiken (and
      other spellings) in it:
      The Gorgas Family, Descendants of John & Psyche Rittenhous e Gorgas of
      Germantown, by Mildred Goshow, 1966 (found at the Germantow n Historical
      Society when I was there last fall)
      "Paul Kripner, advanced in years at 80, 1776, provided in h is will legacies of
      25 pounds each to children of William Van Aken, deceased.
      Children of William Van Aken and wife Mary Gorgas Van Aken:
      Ann van Aken, d. 1840 m. George Wunder, victualler of Germa ntown Township.
      He died 11/6/1825, aged 68 years, 2 days.
      Susannah Van Aken probably m. BECK
      Margaret Van Aken d 6/26/1850 in her 86th year m. Joseph St arne
      Paul Van Aken m. Elizabeth step-daughter of Conrad Ax of Fr ankford Twp,
      Philadelphia County."
      Other data mentioning WUNDER in this booklet is: Catherin e Gorgas married
      William Wunder on 5/17/1803 at the German Reformed Church o f Germantown
      daughter of Jacob Gorgas and Catherine Hortter.
      William may have been the William Wunder, weaver, Sharpnac k St who was
      listed in the Germantown section of the Philadelphia direct ory of 1854.
      Children of William & Catherine were:
      Ann b. 4/1804, George E Wunder b 3/1807, Samuel Gorgas W under b 3/1809,
      Jacob Wunder b 7/1811, William Wunder Jr b 8/1816 and Mary
      Wunder b 1/1818.

      This is not my Wunder line, at least not that I know of - a lthough my Wunders
      were in the same area/time.
      I descend from George Wunder (1786 PA - 1866 IL) and France s Stephenson
      Wunder (1787 PA - 1875 IL), who had sons William S Wunder ( 1806 PA - after
      1870 IL), and Paul Van Aiken Wunder (1812 PA - unknown IL) , and may
      have had more children. Paul Van Aiken married Barbara Rit tenhouse of
      Philadelphia and William Wunder (mine) married Mercy Ann Cu thbert (1812
      PA - 1886 IL), having Elmira Cuthbert Wunder in 1832 in PA . All of these
      families fled Philadelphia circa 1856 to avoid the Yellow F ever Plague, and
      ended up in Kendall County, IL, where they lived to the end . (all buried
      in the
      Millington-Newark Cemetery, IL)
      I probably gave you way more than you wanted, but the nam e Van Aiken keeps
      popping up in the Wunder family...you may want to contact M ary Lee Strubler
      at fstrubler@ejourney.com She is a direct descendant o f Paul Van Aiken
      Wunder and has done a LOT of research on the Wunders, and m ay be able to
      help you out, too.
      Good luck - !!!! Anne

      Dear Bob,

      Today I went through the 1790 census for Germantown, Philad elphia County at Ancestry.com page by page. I found a Georg e WONDER, who was not in the index, with 3 males over 16 an d 4 males under 16 plus 2 others who were probably his wif e and a daughter.

      That pretty well fits the father of our Samuel Henry WUNDER . The marriage date of his parents George Wunder and Ann Va naken was abt 1784 according to LDS.

      We have:
      George WUNDER...Over 16
      Jacob WUNDER....under 16? (age unknown)
      William WUNDER..Under 16? (age unknown)
      George WUNDER...Under 16 born 19 Sep 1785 Germantown
      Samuel Henry....Under 16 born 27 Mar 1788 PA (had to be Ger mantown)
      Catherine and Ann Rea - Ages unknown. One could have been b orn after the 1790 census so the females fit. The only prob lem is there were 3 males 16 or over. Perhaps two of them w ere relatives or hired hands.
