Bachman / Baughman Ancestors

Link to George Bachman
     

Bucks County, Pennsylvania

George Bachman led this Swiss Mennonite family from Richterswil, Canton Zurich via Ibersheim to Pennsylvania around 1717. Settling in Coopersburg, his eleven children were devoted to their religion and their families. George ran the Der Siebenstern, or Seven Stars, tavern and hotel. Among his descendants are his brave son, conscientious objector George Bachman and wife Esther Oberholtzer. Esther, along with Eve Yoder, petitioned for the restoration of household goods confiscated by local government officials in an overzealous patriotic fervor.
