REV. .JOHN WALDSCHMID.

1724-1789.

From Fathers of the Reformed Church, Volume 11, pps. 88-92,
Rev. Henry Harbaugh, D. D., I^ancaster, 1857.

John Waldschmid was a native of the province of Nassau, in
Western Germany. He was born August Oth, 1724, and educated
for the ministry, in his native land. When, in 1751-2, Mr.
Schlatter visited that country, with a view of securing ministers
for the destitute American vineyard, he was one of the six
young men who volunteered to accompany him to the New
World. With the rest, he was examined and ordained, at the
Hague; soon after which solemn occasion, they sailed for
America, arriving at New York in the night preceding July
28th, 1752; and thence went to Pennsylvania.

Soon after their arrival in Pennsylvania, Mr. Schlatter
accompanied him to Lancaster county, and installed him as
pastor over the congregations of Cocalico (since called Swamp),
Weiseichenland (then called Sebastian Reicher's church),
Modecreek, and Zeltenreich. From a notice in the Record-
Book of the Cocalico chinch, we learn that he was installed
in his charge October 22d, 1752. He administered the Holy
Supper in that congregation, for the first time, November 19th,
1752, to seventy-two communicants; "after having, on the
previous day, preached a preparatory sermon, and inquired in
regard to evidence of their fitness for the reception of that
ordinance." On the 26th of the same month, he administered
the Holy Supper to sixty communicants, in the congregation
of Weiseichenland; and, January 28th, 1753, at Mode-creek.

On the 14th of May, 1754, he was married, by the Rev.
William Otterbein, to Mary Elizabeth, daughter of Christian
Grub.

After Dr. Stoy ceased preaching at Tulpehocken, Mr. Wald-
schmid supplied that congregation two years, in connection
with his charge, from 175G to 1758. Some years later, he also
preached, for a time, in the congregation of Heidelberg. His
ministry in that church ceased in 1770, when they complained
to Cotus that he was "a litle inactive, and neglectful of
them;" after which, that congregation was joined with Reading.
Whether there was just ground for this complaint, it is not
easy to decide; we are inclined to think, that the distance he
lived from the congregation, and their desire to be more con-
veniently connected with Reading, may explain it, at least in

( 149 )



150 BAPTISMAL AND MARRIAGE RECORDS.

part. If this be so, it .vas neither the first nor the last time
when persons saw faults in a minister, on which to build a
justification of their own schemes. The long time during which
this man of God. labored successfully in the same charge, it
seems to us, presents an argument, in favor of his efficiency,
that far outweighs this incidental complaint.

Still, there was, at one time, also some dissatisfaction ex-
pressed by some in his own charge. In the Cotal proceedings
of the year 1760, it is said: "In regard to the Rev. Mr. Wald-
schmid, it appears that his congregations are satisfied with his
preaching; only they desire that he might be more diligent in
family visitations, and more prudent in his general conduct."
Tradition remembers him as a remarkably good-natured, mild,
and easy man. With all his goodness, and devotion to the
Church — of which there is no doubt— he may have needed, at
times, the impulse of a special stimulus, to keep him moving
with freshness, ministerial dignity, and pastoral earnestness.

As already intimated, he continued in the same charge to
the end of his life. In the Record-Book, already referred to, we
find the following touching entry, made by the hand of filial
affection: "God, the Almighty, took our dear father out of the
world to Himself, into a blissful eternity, on the 14th of Sep-
tember, 1786, between nine and ten o'clock in the forenoon.
On the 15th, in the afternoon, at two o'clock, we committed his
remains to the grave. The Rev. Mr. Boos preached his funeral
sermon, from Psalm Ixxiii, 23, 24. God grant that we may all
come to where he is! Amen. The tombstone was erected
October 6th, 1787; costs £7 and 2 shillings."

A circumstance, in connection with his tombstone, happened,
about six years later, which was thought very singular; and
which is not only traditionally remembered in the neighbor-
hood, but we find a record of it in the Church-Book. On a
Sunday, June 2d, 1793, while a large congregation was assem-
bled in the church, listening to the Word of God, and when the
winds were quiet, the tombstone of the Rev. Mr. Waldschmid
suddenly broke off at the top of the ground, and fell flat upon
the tomb. "Many saw it," says the Record, "and all heard it
fall." The wonder, in connection with this event, was vastly
increased, in the minds of the people, by the fact that Mrs.
Waldschmid, who was demented, long before, and had not
spoken a word for years, began to speak again with others, on
that same day!

Mr. Waldschmid is buried in the graveyard connected with
the church now called Swamp (in early times Cocalico), in
Lancaster county, Pa. His widow survived him many years,



REV. JOHN WALDSCHMIDT— 1752-1786. 151

and died July 12th, 1803. Besides daughters, he had two sons
to perpetuate his name: one of them moved to the west;
another, whose name was John, lived and died in the Swamp,
on the farm where his father had resided, several miles north-
east of the church. One of Mr. Waldschmid's daughters was
the mother of the two Revds. Gring, who are syil laboring In
the ministry, in the German Reformed Church. On his tomb-
stone is written:
