    Biography


    • BIOGRAPHY:
      The oldest son of Andrew Supplee, named Hance, was the one who built the Supplee house in Worcester, which Samuel M. Clement, Jr., of Chestnut Hill, a member of the Philadelphia bar, has just bought. (1926)

      Hance Supplee bought this Worcester farm and built the house in 1753. Part of his farm he gave in 1770 as a site for a place of worship for all denominations. There Bethel Meeting House was built, which in 1784 became the home of a Methodist congregation, the first congregation of that faith in Montgomery county. The church still stands in an elevated situation on Skippack pike, north of the Stone Creek Railroad. Hance Supplee was the first to be buried in the grounds, for he died in 1770, the same year that he made the gift.

      Hance Supplee was the father of 14 children; and three of his sons, Peter, Jacob, and John, served in the Pennsylvania militia at the time of the Continental army's Pennsylvania campaign. They were in the company of Captain Charles Wilson Peale, the celebrated portrait painter of Philadelphia.

      Early in October 1777, the army was encamped in Worcester, previous to the battle of Germantown, and again after the battle, October 15 to 21.

      Peter Supplee died in the service, he being one of the hundreds who succumbed to disease and privation in the winter camp at Valley Forge. His death occurred January 2, 1778.
