Marriages Published in Der Bauernfreund

Der Bauernfreund (“the farmer’s friend”) was a German-language weekly newspaper founded in Sumneytown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1828 by Adam Slemmer and Enos Benner. Soon after founding the paper, Slemmer withdrew but Enos Benner continued publishing it until 1858, when he sold it to Albrecht Kneule. Kneule combined it with The Pennsbury Demokrat and continued to publish it well into the 1890s. Below are translations done by Kenneth H. Hallman of the marriages published in issues from August 1832 to December 31, 1845, courtesy of the Montgomery County (Pa.) Historical Society. Jane Benner, former GSP vice president and publications chair, entered and formatted the data.
