Notes for JOHN HENRY KUHN:

from Wolfsville, MD, genealogist Leah Spade:

       "Rev. John Caspar Bucher, at age 30, baptized John Henry on July 23, 1834, in the Valley Church at Jerusalem, 6 miles SW of Wolfsville, MD. The church was a "union church" used by both German Reform and Lutherans. Services were in German. Rev. Bucher (1804-1888) (picture) was a circuit rider, preacher, lived in Middletown (from 1830-1843) and rode horseback to pastor several country churches."

John Henry recorded in Kuhn/Pryor family bible the date, the speaker Peter Whetstone, and psalm used at Hannah Cornelia's funeral Whetstone Church, 1882, Anderson, IN: Psalm 34, "I will bless the Lord at all times." A modern gravestone was placed on a Sikes lot at Whetstone Cemetery by descendents in 2004 commemorating Hannah Cornelia Pryor, John's wife. Notes from family bible and receipt for John Henry's purchase of Sikes lot at Whetstone were evidence to the Whetstone Cemetery Committee that allowed placing of stone.

Family story asserts that John Henry Kuhn named the Pleasant Walk Cemetery on Madison Ave. north of Whetstone Church/Cemetery in Anderson, Madison Co., IN.  He probably named this cemetery after the Pleasant Walk Cemetery near his Wolfsville, Maryland, home where his mother Susan Schroyer is buried.

 

 

John Henry Kuhn's love letter to Hannah Cornelia Pryor (with original spelling, capitalization, punctuation, etc.):

Notes for HANNAH CORNELIA PRYOR:

Hannah Cornelia Pryor Kuhn was in an unmarked grave at Whetstone Cemetery for 116 years. Grandsons Thamar and Russell Main had wanted to place a gravestone at her burial site, but burial records for cemetery were lost. Great-great granddaughter Melody Summers Hull found John Henry Kuhn's receipt for grave plot at Whetstone, purchased from a Mr. Sikes. This receipt plus Katherine Dilts Summers' remembrance of her grandmother Hannah Virginia Kuhn Main--Hannah Cornelia's daughter--placing flowers near this plot allowed cemetery officials to give permission for a memorial gravestone at Sikes plot area in 2004. picture below;
