Mathias Ory


Mathias Ory was the legitimate son of Nicolas Ory and Anna Strassbaugh. (Researchers know this because in his Will of 1775 Nicolas names each of his children and he named the person we have come to know as Mathias, Jean. Baptiste, which was the middle name of Jean Baptiste, was also named.) He was born in Maryland in 1749 on the 100 acres Nicolas and Anna bought from William Digges for '7 shilling sterling'. He was the third child born. Digges Lot was an area where many of the Princess Augusta passengers settled, including Nicolas STRASSBACH. Mathias was also on the Bretana, the ship that eventually brought the Nicolas Ory family to Louisiana. He died in 1820. He was married to Agnes Weber on October 11, 1774 in St. John the Baptist Church in Edgard, Louisiana. (Thanks to Horace Ory for the Marriage Certificate.) Together they had five children:
  1. Antoine (Anton) Ory, b. 1776;
  2. Francois Ory, b. April 14, 1789;
  3. Catherine Ory, b. July 04, 1791;
  4. Pierre Ory, b. February 01, 1794;
  5. Elie Ory, b. January 18, 1796
Mathias was a well respected member of the St. John the Baptist community, witness to many legal transactions. My belief is that he was an intelligent person, because during that time many people could neither read nor write (according to the book (German Coast during the Colonial Era 1722-1803). Some people made him their bondsman in legal matters. Also, in church matters, he was godfather several times over. For example, Francois Webre Jr., b. 18 May 1794 was the son of Francois Webre and Marianne Schexnayder and was baptized on the 3rd day of June 1794. His sponsors were Mathis Ory and Catherine Schexnayder, the sister of Marianne. (Francois Webre Jr. became a Lieutenant during the Battle of New Orleans.) Source: Birth, SJBED, B2, 22 Mathias bought and sold much property and even bought slaves. I have researched the St. John Parish records and have located the following entries.
