Samuel Bucher, farmer, P.O. Mummasburg, was born 21 Nov 1819. His great-grandfather, more than 200 years ago, settled on a farm in York County, near the Adams County line on the farm which has descended directly from that ancestor and is yet owned by Jacob Bucher, one of his lineal descendants. Upon that tract five generations were born and six have lived.

The authentic history of this family begins with Michael, the grandfather of our subject who married Elizabeth Carr [Kehr] and to whom were born John, Michael, Jacob, Mary and Elizabeth. The latter, the only one now living, resides in York County, aged eighty-five years; the eldest son,

John, the father of Samuel, married, about 1819, Barbara Driver, and a part of the ancestral farm became his patrimony. There he and his wife remained during life, and the new house was built across the line in Adams County.

They reared the following children: Samuel, Elizabeth, John, Michael, Maria, Anna and Barbara. May 14, 1846, Samuel married Anna M. Crowl. In 1842 he purchased his present farm, on which is located one of the oldest tanneries in the township, and for thirty years has carried on the business of tanning.

To our subject and wife seven children have been born: David M., Mary, Jacob F., Elizabeth E., George E., Sarah E and Samuel Gilbert; four are still living. Jacob F. married Fannie, a daughter of Levi Musselman, of Cumberland County, whose history will be seen in another part of this volume; Sarah became the wife of U. Grant Shook, of Franklin County.

Mr. Bucher has in his possession one of the oldest Bibles in Adams County, date of 1736. He is one of the best-known men of Franklin Township, and bears a name which has never been linked to dishonor. The Buchers have for many years been members of the Mennonite Church, but Mrs. Bucher belongs to the Lutheran Church.


Samuel married Anna Margaret Crowell, daughter of Michael Crowell and Catherine Gilbert, on 14 May 1846 in , , PA.1 (Anna Margaret Crowell was born on 14 Oct 1825 in , , PA,7 8 9 10 died on 7 Jun 1904 in , Adams, PA 10 and was buried in Mummasburg: Mummasburg Mennonite Cemetery, Adams, PA.)
