  1. 8.  Abraham Herr Brubacher was born 21 Sep 1731, Switzerland; died 30 Jan 1811.

    Notes:

    Born on St. Michaels's day in Switzerland, Abraham arrived in America on the ship St. Andrew, September 9, 1749 with his cousin John who was born in America but had returned to Europe to seek a wife.

    Abraham may have lived with his cousin until his marriage to Magdalena Eshelman. In 1757 he bought 172 1/2 acres of land in Clay Twp., Lancaster Co. from Martin Weightman who had acquired it directly from John Penn in 1733. He was going to build a grist mill on this property, but due to water right problems caused him to sell it. Magdalena died 12 March 1785 and is buried in a lone grave on this farm close to Middle Creek. In 1787 Abraham sold this farm and moved about a mile north.

    In 1788 he bought a tract of land in the same township from John Carpenter for 3400 lbs. This purchase was recorded in 2/5/1790 in Philadelphia. This property was actually a Indian reservation. The last of the tribe, the Nanticokes, remained on the land until all were dead. As a result the descendants of Abraham are referred to as the "Indiantown Brubachers".
    There is a small family graveyard, referred to as the "Abraham Brubacher Cemetery" in Clay Twp., Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania that has a monument to Abraham.

    Abraham married Magdalena Eshelman 06 Jun 1755. Magdalena was born 06 Jun 1730; died 12 Mar 1785. [Group Sheet]
