In Reply to: Christian Bucher (1778-1879) by Roger Bucher of 592

From the Herald of Truth, Apr 1879:

Feb. 25th, in the Swiss Mennonite Congregation, in Allen co., Ohio, of old age, CHRISTIAN BUCHER, at the very great age of 100 years, 7 months and 22 days. This, perhaps the oldest known Mennonite, was the father of 7 children, 32 grand-children, 27 great-grand-children, in all 66, of whom 56 are living. He was seldom sick. His natural strength was entirely exhausted; in his last years he was childish, yet at times he could recall scenes of earlier days. He was born in Switzerland on the 3rd of July, 1778, buried the 26th of Feb. 1879, in the presence of a large assembly. Funeral sermon by John Moser, from Acts 24:15,16.
