Lydia Ann FUNK of KY and her Swiss Ancestors

This page based in large part on 1) original research of Daniel W. Bly and published in his From The Rhine to The Shenandoah, Gateway Press, Inc., Baltimore, MD 21202, vol. I. (1993), vol. II. (1996)*; research of 2) Karen Kellogg Stephen of Mehoopany, PA., 3) Christine Stephens of Ft. Thomas, KY and 4) Mike Judd & 5) Donald Richardson.

The origins of the Funk family have been well researched and articulated by Mr. Bly. I borrow shamelessly from him; please be aware that any and all errors be they omission or commission are my own responsibility. This lineage is believed to have been involved in the early Anabaptist movement in late 16th century Switzerland. Specifically Jacob Funk and his wife Anna Naeff were born in Obermettmenstetten in the Knonau District of Canton Zurich about 1575. (Note: Obermettmenstetten is now part of Mettmenstetten).

generations moved to Germany and the region known as the Palatinate where they are well documented in Mennonite historical documents. Their movement can be seen as a result both of their persecution by authorities for their religious beliefs as well as their religious outreach activities. Heinrich Funk (abt 1662) was the first immigrant to the present USA in 1717 having left Bonfeld in Baden and settled with other family members in Strasburg Township, Pennsylvania. Later generations settled in Virginia and then Washington Co, Kentucky. The lineage of Lydia Ann Funk is as follows:

    Jacob FUNK b bef 1575 m abt 1595 d aft 1640 
    Anna NAFF b abt 1576 d aft 1640

    Heinrich (Heini) FUNK b 1613/14 m 20 Aug. 1634 d 1663-1670 
    Cathrina MEYLI b 1612/13 d 9 Apr 1681

    Hans FUNK b 1639 m abt 1659 d aft 1685 
    ?(Barbel (Barbara) FREY b 1639 d aft 1681)?

    Heinrich FUNK b abt 1662 m abt 1687 d abt 1735 (Lancaster, PA) 
    ? FRANEY b abt 1669

    Hans (John) FUNK b abt 1690 m abt 1712 d abt 1758 (Frederick, VA) 
    Barbara ?? b abt 1694 d aft 1737

    Joseph FUNK b abt 1728 (PA) m abt 1760 (VA) d abt 1782 (Shenandoah, VA) 
    Mary DENLINGER b abt 1728 (Lancaster, PA) d abt 1800 (Shenandoah, VA)

    Joseph FUNK Jr. b abt 1765 m 20 Apr 1789 (Nelson, KY) d 1828 (Washington, KY) 
    Elizabeth MYERS b aft 1770 (Nelson, KY) d 1847 (Washington, KY)

    William FUNK b 1798 (Washington, KY) m 5 Oct. 1820 d 1862 (Washington, KY) 
    Mary Polly GILLIHAN b abt 1799 (Washington, KY) d aft 1870 (Washington, KY)

        William FUNK's will was written 11 Oct 1850 and probated 18 Aug 1862.  It is said to include

    'Wm Funk and wife Mary estate in trust to Joseph K Funk.  Wm and Mary's children:  1) Joseph K Funk, 2) Levi Funk, 3) Jacob Funk, 4) Lydia Ann Richardson, 5) Sary (?) Sander (?) wife of Thomas Sander (?), 6) Mariah Funk (she later m. Jacob Cocanougher 8 Jan 1861 by W. H. Morrison), 7) Cleman Funk, 8) Wm Richardson, infant child of Elizabeth Richardson, dec., formerly Funk, and late wife of Samuel Richardson, 9) Mary H Funk.  Then living on 101 1/4 acre pm Beech Fork deed mentions add. land, cattle, etc.'  It is listed in Washington Co Deed Book R, pp 447-450.

    Lydia Ann FUNK b 6 Feb. 1826 (Washington, KY) m 15 May 1845 (Hardin Co, KY) d 17 Nov. 1921 (Howevalley, Hardin Co, KY)

        'Elizabethtown News:  November 18, 1921  "WOMAN DIES AT AGE OF NINETY-FIVE   Mrs Lydia Ann Richardson, aged ninety-five years, died at five o'clock yesterday morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Robert Peters, in Howevalley.  Death was due to the infirmities of age.  Mrs. Richardson was the widow of Rev. Daniel Richardson, a Methodist minister.  Surviving her are four sons, John, Jacob, Richard and Daniel Richardson, and two daughters, Mrs Peters and Mrs J. R. Martin.  Funeral services will be conducted today by the Rev. N. G. Cundiff, and burial will take place at the family cemetary'

Lydia  Funk had three brothers who served in the War Between the States.  Here is the grave site in Washington County, KY of her brother Clem -- the only one of the three who came out of the war alive.  He lived to marry Alice Duncan.  Pictured are some descendants of Lydia Funk (left to right) Dan Richardson, Dr. Emma Richardson, Mike Judd, Leona Richardson Becker, Sam Daugherty, Joe FUNK and his wife Ann Cloteal FUNK of Springfield, KY.

Lydia's eldest brother was Levi who served as corporal in Company "I" First KY Vol. Calvary.  Captured at Philadelphia, TN 20 Oct. 1863. Confined at Richmond, VA Nov. 1, 1863; sent to Andersonville Ga February 18, 1864.  Admitted to Hospital at Andersonville Ga August 14, 1864 where he died Oct. 4, 1864 of wounds in the misery of the Andersonville POW camp.

    Plat Book of Morgan County, Illinois 1894.

    NIMROD FUNK, was born in Shenandoah county, Virginia, Oct. 23, 1794. He was the third child of Samuel and Elizabeth Funk, who were natives of the "Old Dominion." He moved, with his family, to Illinois, in 1830, and settled in what is now Scott county, and died three years after settling there. His wife survived him eight years.
    Nimrod, after living with his parents till he grew up, moved to East Tennessee, and was married to Eve Leib, daughter of John Leib, of Anderson county, Tennessee, in 1818. In early life he learned the trade of saddler and harness maker. On the 29th of October, 1827, he landed, with his family, in Illinois, locating in Morgan county. He entered a quarter section of land, on a portion of which Linnville (Lynnville) now stands. He carried on farming until the spring of 1869, when he sold his farm and moved to Jacksonville. Mrs. Funk died at their residence in the city June 22, 1871, soon after which he broke up housekeeping and went to live with his children. They had a family of twelve children, nine of whom are yet living. Mr. Funk and wife became members of the Baptist Church in 1825. He acquired considerable property, and now, in his advanced age, is enjoying good health.
