Elizabeth 'Bessie' Pötter was born about 1819 near Alpen, Germany. Her father Gottlieb b1790 was 30 and her mother Catharina was in her early 20's. She married Michael D. Buck about 1840 in Reutlingen, Germany. They immigrated to America sometime shortly thereafter they are found on the 1850 Census for Blair Co, Penns. She passed away in 1892 in East Sharpsburg, Blair Co, Pennsylvania. She also had 2 sisters in the area, Caroline Stephens who lived in Hollidaysburg and Catherine Munday who lived out in Jackson Twp, Cambria Co. In 1869 Caroline's husband Adam Stephan suffered a stroke and her daughter Elizabeth came to live with her Aunt Elizabeth Buck. Also buried near the Buck's is their nephew George Stephan who died at age 6 and her grandniece Mary Stephan who died as an infant in 1895. To the best of my knowledge the Buck's did not have children of their own. They are buried next to each other in this cemetery. According to her Tombstone she passed away Jan 5 1892 - aged 73 years 6 day. Thanks to Gina for getting the Date 0f Death off the Tombstone
