Rev John Philip Boehm
Birth: Nov., 1683, Germany
Death: Apr. 29, 1749
Northampton County
Pennsylvania, USA

"On April 29th, during the night, the Rev. John Philip Boehm died, without previous sickness, for on the day before he held a preparatory service for the Lord's Supper. It so happened that no Reformed preacher could be had to preach his funeral sermons, hence they engaged Martin Kolb, a Mennonite minister, to preach the funeral sermon. If such things become customary and common, without necessity compelling it, the envy and antagonism of parties will soon come to an end. How beautiful will it be at that time when there will be one shepherd and one flock. Till then patience!"
-Saur's Paper, May 16, 1749

excerpted from the Diary of Rev. Michael Schlatter:
"On the 7th of May, I preached at Germantown, not without emotion, a funeral sermon on the death of Mr. Boehm, the oldest of the High German Reformed ministers in this country, who for the space of many years had to serve various congregations, and whose memory is cherished by many as blessed."

son of Maria B. Englehard and Rev. Philip Ludwig Boehm (also a Reformed minister)

Rev. Boehm was born in Hochstadt, near Frankfurt-am-Main and baptized on Nov. 25, 1683:
"Philippus Ludovicus Boehm, p.t., pastor of this place, and Maria his wife, brought a son to baptism, Johann Philipp."

John Philip Boehm was the spouse of Anna Maria Stahler/Stehler, daughter of Hartman Stahler.
