2 Some of the following is taken from History of the Pacific Northwest Oregon and Washington, published in 1889:In 1851 Joseph Bucht el purchased a daguerreotype outfit and entered the portrait business in Urbana, Illinois. In 1852 he crossed the plains to Oregon, and spent the next four years working on steamboats that plied the upper Willamette River, including the Shoalwater, Canemah and Willamette. During this time and after, he became a well-known and popular photographer; his work is even now prominently displayed in various Portland art galleries. Joseph Buchtel was active in the early history of Portland and Oregon, coming to Portland when it was a struggling village. He served one term as Sheriff of Multnomah County, he assisted in the organization of the Multnomah Fire Engine Company, and was chief of the volunteer department, and chief after the establishment of the paid department. Hedirected the erection of the first Morrison Street Bridge across the Willamette River, built by William Beck and others. He also built the first mile of street car track on the east side of the river, on Grand avenue, the intention being to build the line to City Park race track, in which he was interested, but it was never finished. He is the inventor of the telegraph fire hose, which was patented in1872, and also invented a coupling for the same in 1883. He also invented the patent wire-fence post. He was a champion baseball player for fifteen years, being pitcher and captain of the PioneerBaseball Club for twenty years. He was able to bring about the purchase and setting apart of a 1200-acre tract at Champoeg, Oregon. He, with ten friends, bought the land and gave the state a deed to it, the state afterward reimbursing them for their outlay. This tract is now the Champoeg State Heritage Area.

Birthday celebration news article: Nov. 23, 1914, Oregonian, p 7: Joseph Buchtel, pioneer of 1852, who had been an active factor in the early history of Portland and Oregon, passed his 84th birthday yesterday at his home 1268 East Washington street, in a quiet manner with his family, although many friends called and sent their good wishes. Owing to a very painful trouble with his left eye the reception and family reunion had to be called off. Mr. Buchtel has been completely blind for more than two years, but he still retained hope that the sight of one eye could be restored until this recent affliction. Mr. Buchtel came to Portland when it was a struggling village. He and Captain G. A. Pease are the only two surviving men who operated on the Willamette River in 1852, 1853 and 1854. Allthe other river men have passed away. At that time and for many years afterward steamers were operated to Corvallis and were the chief means of transportation in the Willamette Valley to and from Portland. Mr. Buchtel was steward on the "Wallamut," the largest steamer on the Willamette River. He said that the boat often carried 200 passengers to Salem. Mr. Buchtel had a very active and wide career in Portland and there was rarely any progressive movement in Portland in which he did not have a part. He was one of the earliest photographers, and his views of Portland as a village are the only ones extant at present. He served one term as Sheriff of Multnomah County. He assisted in the organization of the Multnomah Fire Engine Company, and was chief of the volunteer department, and chief after the establishment of the paid department. Mr. Buchtel projected the erection of the first Morrison street bridge across the Willamette River, built by William Beck and others. He also built the first mile of street car track on the east side of the river, on Grand avenue, the intention being to build the line to City Park race track, in which he was interested, but it was never finished. Mr. Buchtel was an expert in horse racing, and officiated at the State Fair and elsewhere as judge for many years. As the pioneer baseball player he organized and captained the Pioneer Baseball Club in Portland in the seventies, which held the championship for many years. It may be said that it was through the work of Joseph Buchtel that the grounds on which the Washington High School and Hawthorne buildings stand were secured for school purposes. Mr. Buchtel was an active member of the old East Side Improvement Association that brought about the re-building of the Morrison bridge and caused the East Side low lands to be filled up. When the North East Side Improvement Association was organized to promote the building of the Broadway bridge, Mr. Buchtel was one of the foremost members and was named a member of the bridge committee. At that time the weakness of his eyes began to appear, but he attended all meetings and was active till that bridge was built, and was accorded the honor of riding in the automobile first to cross the completed structure. That Joseph Buchtel was a useful citizen hundreds can testify who received a helping hand from him. He was a leader in his time of men and affairs. The one particular thing he feels glad of is that he was able to bring about the purchase and setting apart of a 1200-acre tract at Champoeg, Ore., where some time in the future the statewill erect a monument suitable to commemorate the memory of the men who saved the Oregon country to the United States, May 2, 1843. He, with ten friends, bought the land and gave the state a deed to it, the state afterward reimbursing them for their outlay. "It was my desire to get an appropriation of $5,000 from the state to have the land improved," said Mr. Buchtel yesterday, in speaking of that matter, "but I became blind and could do no more. When we bought the tract and the state took it over I went to see F. X. Matthieu, the then sole survivor of the convention that saved this country to the United States, and told him what had been done. "Joe," he said, "Now I am ready to die." The old man was deeply interested in the movement to get the land. It is a little hard after having livedan active life that I should be blind and suffering in my old age, but those are the things we cannot account for. I should have been glad to see my old friends, but it cannot be, but I can and do send them my greetings. I am glad to be remembered by so many." Mr. Buchtel has four children: Archie L. Buchtel, Fred G. Buchtel, Mrs. N. L. Curry and Mrs. W. G. Kern.

3 (1) Some corrections made in 3rd edition of "Genealogical Record of Reverend Hans Herr, Third Edition with Corrections and Supplemental Data by Dr. Phillip E. Bedien", Theodore W. Herr.

Samuel (5) was not a son of Hans Herr, but rather a grandson - the son of Abraham (2) and Feronica Musselman. He married Anna Hershey, daughter of Christian and Esther Hershey. A 1763 datestone on the little miller's house at Windom Mill on Blue Rock Road in Manor Township has the initials "SH AH".

Henry (7) was not a son of Hans Herr, but rather a grandson - the son of Isaac Herr (X), who was omitted from the 1908 genealogy. Henry Herr married first Anna Kreider, daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth Greider (Deed Q-2-216) and secondly the widow of Christian Shultz. His will, (C-1-441) was proved on June 16, 1777.

The initial publication of the 1908 Herr Genealogy listed (p.1) the children of Hans Herr (1639-1725) and Elizabeth Kendig (1644-1730) but did not include Isaac as their son. However, an Addendum (pp.787-788) asserts that Isaac was their son and provides details of his life.[1]

(2) Many genealogists feel that Hans Herr's wife was not Elizabeth Mylin Kendig. Some say that's because Elizabeth, daughter of John Jacob Kendig and Jane Mylin/Mayle, was married to Anstett Volken. There are factions that insist his wife was Elsbeth Loetscher, for various reasons. I am keeping Elizabeth Kendig as his wife because she is considered his wife by major sources in Lancaster County, such as the Hans Herr House.
