      Emanuel J Liechty
      Birth 13 Aug 1849
      Bern, Switzerland
      Death 10 Dec 1936 (aged 87)
      Berne, Adams County, Indiana, USA
      Burial
      MRE Cemetery
      Berne, Adams County, Indiana, USA

      Monday, December 14, 1936

      Emanuel J. Liechty, 87, pioneer of this community, died suddenly from a heart attack at his home at the north edge of Berne Thursday afternoon at about 3:45 o'clock. He had returned to the house from doing some chores at the barn when he complained to Mrs. Liechty that he was not feeling well. He died soon after from a heart attack.

      Mr. Liechty was the last survivor of the group of men that built the first store in Berne. The others were Jacob and Chris Reusser and Solomon Wittwer. The building was a roughly built shack of upright boards, 20x50 feet and served as a "general store" and the counters were made of boards laid on store boxes.

      Emanual Liechty was born in Canton Bern, Switzerland, August 13, 1849, the son of Jacob P. and Marie Tschumi Liechty. At the age of five years he immigrated to America with his parents, the ocean voyage taking more than 40 days. They first settled in Wayne County, Ohio, but soon came to Adams County, into this community. He helped to clear the farm known as the Frank Behling farm and others in this vicinity. For a time he operated a cheese factory west of Berne but began carpentry some time later.

      Upon his marriage to Anna Sprunger, daughter of Peter N. and Anna Moser Sprunger, July 17, 1875, he took up farming and was until retirement 20 years ago one of the progressive farmers of this community. They were married in the home of Rev. S.F. Sprunger.

      They began to farm on a 160-acre farm about three miles northeast of Berne. In 1904 Mr. and Mrs. Liechty moved to Berne and Mr. Liechty followed his former occupation as a carpenter. However,they soon returned to the farm and lived there until 1917 when he retired and moved near town into a modern new home. Mr. and Mrs. Liechty celebrated both the Golden wedding and Diamond wedding anniversaries. Up until about a year ago death never darkened the home nor took any of the life partners of any of their children.

      Surviving are the widow and the following children; Calvin R., Manasse, Mrs. Alfred Sprunger, Robert U., Mrs. H.A. Sprunger, David O., all of Berne or near Berne and Reuben E. Liechty of Montpelier. One son, Menno S., died about a year ago. One brother, Peter Liechty of north of Berne, and one sister, Mrs. Ulrich Sprunger of this place also survive. Brothers and sisters who have preceded are Sam, Jacob, Joel, Mrs. David C. Lehman and Christian. There are 43 grandchildren, an adopted grandchild and 23 great-grandchildren?(cut off)
