Adam Buehler, a pioneer minister of te German Methodist church of this city was born in Freeport, Michigan, on March 17, 1855 and died January 22, 1914. at Richland, Washington. He was married in 1880 to Rosie M. Raad, a sister of Mrs. Mary Buehler of this city. He came west in 1883 and entered the ministry as a German missionary and had what is now the Inland Empire as his appointment. He traveled from Douglas to Spokane and from Spokane to Lewiston, Idaho, and almost down as far as Walla Walla. On one of his trips he came to Ritzville in 1883 and preached the first German sermon that was delivered in this city. John Kanzler and Ferdinand Ebbener, besides other who have since passed away, were present at that first meeting. He has served in different charges, among which were Douglas, Harrington, Edwall, Spokane, Rosalia, Connell, Everett and Centralia. Metoleus, Orgeon was his first appointment. Toward the latter part of the summer while he was living at Metoeus, he became affected with a cough, which gradually became worse, and his phusician advised him to move to a lower altitude. Accordingly he moved to Richland, in this state, where his daughter, Mrs. Luella Koehler, resides. Slowly his health failed and he continued to grow weaker and on the 22nd of this month he passed away.
Funeral service were held in Richland on last Saturday morning, Rev. H. Hauelson of the place officiating. The body was brought to Ritzville Saturday evening and Sunday morning at 11 o'clock services were held at the German M. E. church. District Superintendent E. E. Hertzler preached the sermon. Burial was made in the cemetery south of this city, where his father, Conrad Buehler, his mother and his brother are buried. Rev. Buehler is survived by his wife and seven children, Milton Buehler of Connell; Mrs. Lora Schelly of Newburg, Oregon; Elmer Buehler of Tacoma; Mrs. Luella Koehler, Richland; Mrs. Nettie Martin of Harrington; Mrs. Ida Kludas of Grandiew; and Miss Olga Buehler, who lived at home
