Obituary of Christian RUSMISEL (1787-1860)

Obituary of Johann Christian Rusmisel, born 14 Feb 1787 Tulpehocken Township, Berks County, PA, died 7 Sep 1860 near Mount Solon, Bath County, VA. He was the son of Adam and Rachel (Schumacher) Rusmisel.

September 14, 1860 issue of the Staunton Vindicator: Near Mt. Solon, on the 7th inst., Christian Rusmisel, in the 74th year of his age. In the death of Mr. Rusmisel, Augusta County has lost another of her aged and valued citizens. He was born in the county, and never had even a temporary residence out of it. He was a good man in all the relations of life - affectionate and devoted as a husband and father - warm as a friend and neighbor; he was also a christian. Since early life he had been a consistent member of the German Reformed church. He died in the full hope of a glorious resurrection. P.

Note errors: (1) He was born in Pennsylvania and 2) he was a soldier in the War of 1812, and most likely went outside the county then.
