~~ Joseph Nusbaumer ~~
1780 - 1865

Joseph was born in Solothurn, Switzerland, where he was reared to mechanical pursuits. His parents names are unknown at this time.

He was married in Switzerland to Barbara Schwaller.
They had four sons:
John Joseph 1824 - 1909
France 1828 - 1899
Lawrence 1838 - 1880
George 1842 - 1899

All of his children were born Switzerland; except George, as he was born in America.

In June, 1842 the family immigrated to America, the family left their native land, and going through France to Havre, took passage on the ship "Ville de Lyons". After a pleasant voyage of thirty-six days they arrived in New York the last of June. The father preceded them one year, and had purchased 100 acres of land in Wayne County, Ohio, then went back to Switzerland for his family. From New York they went up the Hudson River, the Erie Canal, Lake Erie to Cleveland, thence by canal to Massillon, Ohio, and by wagon to their new home. There they followed farming, butchering, changing to grocery keeping, until 1863 when they moved to and settled in Nottingham Township, Wells County, Indiana, where his son, John Joseph, had bought a piece of land there.

Joseph died in September, 1865, and his wife Barbara in October, 1876, both in Wells County, Indiana and both are buried at Bloxsom Cemetery, (also known as McDaniel's Cemetery) Wells County, Indiana.
