Johannes "John" Gerberich
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 7, 1759
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 18, 1843
Lebanon County
Pennsylvania, USA

Son of Andreas and Barbara (Babb) Gerberich, married twice; 1) Catharine Latschaa, about 1783, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, and 2) Magdalene Bender, about December 1801, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania.
It is said that at the age of eighteen John enlisted in the Revolutionary Army for three years as a substitute for his father, and when his father had also been called during the dark days of Valley Forge and Germantown he re-enlisted and served his country with honor until the close of the war. He was ready to lay down his life when liberty and justice, our birthright, were trampled upon, and our human rights assailed; he fought for the freedom which we now enjoy. The following is his Revolutionary record, taken from the pages of the Pennsylvania Archives:

1777--6th Battalion, 4th Class, Lancaster County militia.

1778-79--6th Battalion, 8th Company, 4th Class. This entry is followed by the words: "Served at Lebanon."

1780--9th Battalion, 7th Company, 3d Class. This entry is followed by the word "marcht."

1781--Captain Bradley's 9th Battalion, 3d Class, Lancaster County militia.

1782--Captain Bradley's 9th Battalion, 4th Class, Lancaster County militia.

The name is spelled in various ways, but is generally some form of "Carvery" or "Carvory." In 1840, at the age of 81, John was one of a small handful of pensioned revolutionary veterans still living in Lebanon County, as is mentioned in Rupp's History of Berks and Lebanon Counties (1844).
