HISTORY

Alsace is a French Province (German to 1697 and 1871 - 1919), area of 3,437 square miles, lying on the west bank of the Rhine between Switzerland and the German Palatinate. It consists of the two departments of Upper (Haut-Rhin) and Lower (Bas-Rhin) Alsace. The Anabaptist movement found early entry into Alsace. Its center was Strasbourg which offered assylum to those persecuted for their faith and in which such men as Jakob Gross, Balthasar Hubmaiser, Wilhelm Reublin, Michael Sattler, and Hans Denck lived for a while. (Bender, Harold S. “Neuneich Amish Mennonite Congregation (Sundgau Alsace, France).” Global Anabaptist Mennonite Encyclopedia Online, 1957, retrived 14 March 2009.

The Alsace gains a place in Mennonite history because many Swiss Mennonites fled to the Alsace after persecutions became particularly intense in the latter part of the 1600 's in Switzerland. St. Marie-aux-Mines (Markich Haut Rhin in German) was the first area to which the Mennonites fled. As a result of a written petition the Anabaptists were given certain privileges: exemption from military service, exemption from taking oaths, and the ability to worship in private homes in return for bringing their considerable agricultural skills to the task of helping to restore the productivity of the land after the Thirty Years War. (Claude Jerome. “Mennonites in the Alsace” Encyclopedia De L'Alsace, 1984, vol 8, reprinted in Mennonite Family History, July 1993. p. 135-136.)

  •   Royce Huber served in WWI and was stationed at Pearl Harbor (having Augustine and son with him) when it was bombed. Royce was on board the Curtis, which sank during the raid. He had no memory of how he got from below deck to the beach afterward. Augustine and her son, and other dependents of men were told by the Chaplain to gather all the non-perishable food they could carry and head into the hills and hide. No one knew if the Japanese would come back. It was quite awhile before civilians were evacuated back to the mainland. In October of 1942, Russell was born on board the ship going back to Mare Island Naval Shipyard. Story related by Mary Huber

  •   Lowell served in WWII on the USS Atik, a Q-ship of the U.S. Navy. This was a steamer “Carolyn” which formerly carried freight and passengers. She was turned over to the Navy and converted to a man-of-war ship, but appeared to be a cargo ship. Her holds were packed with pulpwood. Atik's mission was to lure a U-boat into making a torpedo attack and then surface to the top with gunfire. Then supporting forces would come in to aid in the battle. On March 26/27, Atik was about 300 miles east of Norfolk, VA. Atik attracted the attention of U-123 and began stalking the Atik. They fired one torpedo; fire broke out and the ship began to list slightly. Two distress messages were sent out; the later asking for assistance. All surface craft were on patrol elsewhere. The Atik started gunfire at the U-123 but lost track of it in a smoke screen. The U-boat sot another torpedo into the machinery spaces and then watched as Atik Crew members tried to embark in boats. Then an explosion blew Atik to pieces. The U-123 had only one casualty, Atik lost the entire crew. Wreckage was later found ten miles south of the site.

(The Yellow Creek Mennonites, p145,146) Mary and Jacob were 19 years of age when they married and they had seven children. In 1833, Jacob was ordained by Bishop Jacob Nold at the Midway Meetinghouse of Mahoning Co.,OH for the Columbiana-Mahoning Mennonite congregations. (Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage, vIII,#4,Oct. 1980) Jacob was a farmer by trade, and went into the threshing business of which some of his members didn't like. At this point he decided to move to NW of the later Yellow Creek Meeting house on C.R. 36 (now) of Harrison Twp., Elkhart Co.,IN in the spring of 1848 where land was cheaper. In the first Mennonite Church service that was held in Elkhart Co., IN, Jacob had the main sermon which was preached in German. Jacob was ordained Bishop in 1851 . He was the first active bishop in IN. He was known as a good-hearted and earnest christian. Later, as a result of some younger men wanting to bring newer ideas into the church, he organized the Old Order Mennonites which is also called the Wisler Mennonites.

Burial: East Old Yellow Creek Cem., Row. 10 (The Record of the Old Yellow Creek Cem., Entry 218) Jacob did not care for evening meetings, Sunday Schools, or bass singing, but stayed to the way he was raised in Bucks Co.,PA. The services were sung with the old German hymns without parts…just the melody. Services were held in German every two weeks in the forenoon. The Yellow Creek Mennonites, p146) It made contention when a new ministers moved into the area and wanted to add new programs and evangelistic preaching more like the Methodists. Jacob was made Overseer of the Yellow Creek District of about 450 members. Jacob was also one of the preachers that took turns preaching services in the schoolhouse every four weeks for the Mennonite families that had settled in Locke and Union Twps in the vicinity of the Culp Schoolhouse [1 1/2 miles NE of where Nappanee now is.]. (The Yellow Creek Mennonites, p112) He contributed to the 1875 building fund for the Holdeman congregation in 1875 where several congregations contributed.

After the railroad decided to build the train station a mile north and a mile west, it was decided that Foraker should be moved to the new site. Noah moved his store on a pair of skids and with the use of horses from Old Foraker to New Foraker. Noah Kauffman then took charge of the store. Work trains began showing up. On April 27, 1893, the first freight train ran over the Wabash-a west bound freight No. 97, had a few cars, old hand brakes, link and pin couplers, and a small engine. (My great-great uncle Nils Svenson invented the car coupler that is still used today, see Mansson Genealogy, Entry ?) On May 30, 1893, the first passenger train Number 54 was run going eastbound. Foraker Station was opened the same year. In 1893, buildings began to pop up everywhere. Noah Yoder erected a new store building on the southwest corner of the junction. Noah operated the general merchandise store for awhile as well as was postmaster in the same building. Another building was erected against his store, and later on Noah took possession of this building, enlarged his store by cutting a large door through the walls between the buildings and throwing both rooms into one store. When Yoder sold out, the door was blocked up and became two stores again. There were living quarters above the store but we don't know if Noah ever lived there. Solomon Miller and Noah Yoder were the main stays at Foraker in its early history. Solomon and Noah erected a building just south of the little old harness shop and after its completion, they put in a stock of buggies and wagons. Later, the building was made into a church. Another friend of Noah's, John Detwiler, had a blacksmith shop just north of the railroad tracks on the west side of Main Street. Detwiler also put up the first dwelling house which ended up being the third house east of the depot. John Detwiler and John Blenis put up a cider mill next to the blacksmith shop and did an enormous business. Later, they sold the business to Noah Yoder who run the cider mill two seasons and then sold out to George Wernitz, who moved the mill. Noah Yoder, John Detwiler, Emmanuel Kime, Lorento Kime, Earl Mishler, and Clarence Mishler then moved to Kempster, Wisconsin.

As a minister and as a bishop he always endeavored to render the best possible service to the brotherhood under his care. His constant desire was to labor as a servant rather than as one exercising authority, with the thought that obedience should be rendered because of faithful teaching and understanding of the Word rather than because of harsh discipline, desiring that the Church might prosper and become more God-like. It was often said of Bro. Christophel. that when some one came to him for advice the person always was given something helpful and worth while. His chief concern and burden was the welfare of the churches in his charge, and he labored to the end that they might prosper and live in peace.

(The Yellow Creek Mennonites, p112) Burial: East Yellow Creek Cem., Row 1 (Starting by the road at the north end) CHRISTOPHEL. - On the 12th of October, in Elkhart county, Ind., of palsy, Pre. Christian Christophel, aged 63 years, 7 months and 26 days. Bro. Christophel was born on the 16th of Feb. 1820, in Westmoreland county, Pa. He came to Ohio in 1835 and was married to Anna Hoover, in Mahoning county, on the 17th of April 1845. He removed from the last named place to Harrison township, Elkhart county, Ind., in 1848, where he resided to the time of his death. He united with the Mennonite Church in early life and about 11 years ago was ordained to the ministry and was a faithful laborer in the vineyard of the Lord. His earnest admonitions and his devoted zeal in the cause of Christ and his Church, will be longed remembered. He will be greatly missed not only in his home but also in his neighborhood and in the Church. On Saturday afternoon, the 6th of October, though somewhat indisposed, he attended the examination meeting at his Church, about a mile from his residence. After his return home he sat down with his family to the supper table to take the customary evening meal, lifting his heart in prayer and thanksgiving to God for the tender mercies of His hands, after which when about to partake of the bounties which a heavenly Father had bestowed, his hand suddenly lost its strength, his tongue became speechless, his mind unconscious and his whole right side was palsied, and in this condition, without being able to speak or recognize any one, he lay for six days, when death relieved him of all his sufferings; but we need not mourn as those who have not hope, believing that our loss was his eternal gain. He was buried on the 15th. An immense concourse of people followed the remains to their last resting place at Yellow Creek Meeting-house, where services were held by Jacob A. Beutler from Luke 2:29, and John F. Funk and Martin Hoover from Numbers 23:10 last clause; a kind husband and father, a good neighbor, a faithful minister and sincere Christian has been called from the toils of this sinful world, and our prayer is that He may comfort the sorrowing household, and raise up another laborer to fill the vacant place in the Church.

She replied: It would be well if I were.” Peace to her ashes. (Herald of Truth 6/1/1888, p173)
