John Bosserman 


John Bosserman was born on 22 April 1772 on the Bosserman Homestead in Reading Township, York (now Adams) County Pennsylvania.  He was the seventh born  child of Johnann Michael and Christina (Dierdorff) Bassermann.    John married in Oct 1795 to Anna Maria Bushey who was born on 10 Aug 1771, a daughter of Johann Nicholas and Anna Margaret (Schmalbnberger) Bushey.

It was John and his descendants that remained on the old Bosserman Homestead Farm in Reading Township until it was sold out of the Bosserman family in the early 1900s.  It was on that farm that many of the early Bosserman were first buried.   Many of the Bosserman graves were moved at that time into the cemetery beside The Mummerts Church Of The Brethren Meeting House near East Berlin Pennsylvania.
