Christian Aebischer
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 15, 1828
Death: Jun. 15, 1881

Four brothers came from Switzerland in 1851 to this area. They were Christian, John, Nicholas, and Samuel and two sisters, Mrs. Anna Reif and Elizabeth


Our citizens were shocked on Wednesday, to learn that Christian Aebischer's team ran away and that he was killed. The particulars as gleaned from his brother Samuel are as follows:

Mr. Aebischer was returning from Peter Kroehnke's cheese factory at Gravesville, and at Andrew Allen's farm picked up the road district scraper, intending to use it at another point of the district. Near Henry Losey's, and in sight of his own residence, he got down from the wagon to lift the scraper out, and when about getting in again the team started. He had a hold of the seat and wagon box at the same time, but was thrown down and a hind wheel passed between his legs and diagonally over his abdomen. He got up and ran after his team about twenty rods when he fell in the road. Henry Losey, who was a spectator of the sad affair, ran to his assistance so that when the team turned around they could not run over him. Mr. Losey assisted by John Venn and Frank Cheesbro then carried him into the house where he expired in 15 or 20 minutes. The deceased was a native of Berne, Switzerland, and was one of the well-to-do farmers of Charlestown, where he located 28 years ago. He was an honest and industrious citizen, who was well and favorably known throughout the county, and his departure causes universal regret. He was 53 years of age. His absence will be missed for a long time to come.
