Henry Bauscher, son of Christian, was born on the old Bauscher homestead in Albany township May 25, 1832, and there passed his entire life, dying on the same farm, May 3, 1909.
His early education was obtained in the old pay schools of his day, and later he went to Montour county to learn English and attend school.
He was a man of more than ordinary intelligence and judgement and he was successful as a farmer and useful as a citizen. The old Bauscher farm which he owned contains 190 acres of the best farm land in the township, and under his practical, systematic care it was greatly improved and developed. The tenement house, a stone building, was erected by his father, Christian, in 1852, but the modern brick house, now occupied by Miss Annie M. Bauscher, was built by Henry Bauscher in 1852. The Swiss barn was built by Christian.
Henry Bauscher was modest and retiring in his disposition, but he had too keen a regard for the duties and responsibilities of citizenship to remain in the background when the moral or material welfare of his community was in need of support and assistance, and he was ever one of the progressive and enterprising men of his community.
He was industrious and honest, and he well merited the high esteem in which he was held. In politics he was a Democrat, and for many years served most efficiently as school director. He and his family were members of the New Bethel (Corner) Church of Albany, which he served many years in the duties of deacon, elder, and treasurer.
He and three generations before him are buried in its graveyard.
Mr. Bauscher was twice married. On Oct. 2, 1854, he m. Sarah Kunkel, born Oct 2, 1837; died Sept. 29, 1863, the mother of five sons: Lewis W., born 1855; Oliver, born 1856; Daniel, born 1860; and Wallace and Thomas, twins, born 1862, the former dying in 1862; and the latter in 1863.
On Nov. 9, 1867, Mr. Bauscher married Sally Sassaman. She died April 6, 1908. To this union was born one daughter, Annie M.
He is survived by one brother, Nathan, of Orwigsburg, and two children, Daniel, of Kempton, and a daughter, Anna, at home. His wife died a year ago. Funeral next Tuesday forenoon. Services in New Bethel Church.
