Burial: Old Strasburg Mennonite Cemetery (Eight Children) (Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage, vIII,#4,Oct. 1980) Samuel Lehman near upper Strasburg, Franklin county, Pa, departed this life on Sunday evening, Oct. 21st, aged 85 years, 2 months and 9 days. The subject of this notice was a man of a peculiarly strong and healthy constitution, having known little of sickness, except such as rheumatism etc., the results of exposure, until the last six weeks of his allotted time, he suffered severely from pulmonary and asthmatic affections, but bore his afflictions with much patience; but the time came when human aid and all that loving hearts and hands could do, could no longer keep him and a merciful God permitted the soul to leave its earthly tabernacle, for a better Home not made with hands, where sufferings and sorrows are left behind, and where our tears shall be wiped away. Of this hope our departed father left us a bright evidence, having spent his latter days in much prayer and supplication, expressing nothing of condemnation. Truly, “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord. Father Lehman, since a young man was a member of the Mennonite Brotherhood in Christ, and a regular attendant at the Church near his home: he having been born, lived and died on the same farm. His parents also lived and died there. His long intercourse with his fellow-men in general, was ever pleasant and unobtrusive, being often sought after to fill places of responsibility. Ever generous to the needy, his removal will be felt by many. Like the uplifting of the oak, with its numerous and long roots, intermingled with many lesser ones which stood around it which will be more or less affected by its removal. The The interment took place on the 23rd , when impressive remarks were made from 2 Tim.4:6, 7 by Pre. Peter Wadle and Hunsecker in German, and Isaac Sollenberger in English. Thus has our father and grandfather gone before us. Which among us will be the first to follow him? (Herald of Truth, Nov. 1883)

Daniel built a fulling mill and fulled home-made cloth for settlers in addition to farming. (Photos of his house) Daniel Lehman had been ordained as a Mennonite minister at the Hernley-Lehman Church (1766) in Lancaster Co. about 1765.

Deed Book 6,p281,Franklin Co. Courthouse,Chambersburg,PA) Soon a log church was erected on the east end of his farm. September 4, 1804, he preached the first sermon and announced another meeting in four weeks. He died before it happened. Before moving to Franklin Co., he was ordained bishop to have oversight of the Mennonites in Franklin Co., PA and Washington CO., MD.
