About Christian Y. Peachey

- In 1829 Christian bought 99 acres and 122 perches from William Flemming for the sum of $3,850. An old building built over a spring is still standing and where Christ B. Peachey started the harness shop business. It sits 100 feet from the creek and said to be the original farmhouse. Christian and Mary built the 30' x 36' brick house in two piece - the first in the mid-1850's and the second about 1860-61. Christian and Mary sold the farm along with 41 acres and 110 perches of woodland on Jacks Mountain for the handsome price of $10,712.62 to their son Solomon Peachey on April 1, 1862. - In 1846, Christian purchased a farm south of White Hall along Bunker Hill Road from David & Veronica Kauffman. In 1861, he sold it to his son John Peachey, who later sold it to his son John S. & Sally Yoder Peachey. John S. Peachey's son Urie owned it for a period then Chester Peachey owned it last. After 140 years in the Peachey name, Harvey L Yoder bought it. - When his son Christ Jr died young, Christ Sr kept the funds for Christ Jr's daughters Ari & Rebecca and later bought two farms for them. - "Across the creek nearly opposite the widow of Joseph Fleming, Sr., in a large brick house lived Christian Peachey, Sr., then married to his second wife....Christian was a man of more than ordinary bodily strength, a quick-minded man who could say yes or no without any 'perhaps,' or 'I will see about it.' He was a good neighbor, kind to the poor and always ready to relieve actual want, and this can also be truly said of his children". (1843 history of Allensville) - Obituary says he was the father of 18 children. He was always ready to help the poor and there is good evidence that his spirit is at rest. - MSMHS has his Bible. - On the ____, in Menno Tp., Mifflin County, Pa., Christian Peachey, aged 82 years, 4 months and 6 days. He was married twice, his first wife died about 50 years ago and his second wife about 18 years ago. He was the father of 18 children, 31 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. He was a faithful member of the Amish Mennonite Church. He was always ready to help the poor, and there is good evidence that his spirit is at rest. Funeral services were held by David and Christian Peachey, from John 5. The funeral was largely attended. (HoT Mar 1886)
