The Lititz Record, Thursday Morning, October 7, 1926

Henry W. Buch, who will be ninety-one years old shortly, took part in the Rally Day services in the United Evangelical church on Sunday by reading a paper on his early day experiences in Sunday School work, as follows: (What follows is a description of his remembrances from 77 years ago. The first paragraph is of school house interest.)

My early boyhood Sunday School days began seventy-seven years ago on the twenty-seventh day of April, 1849 at Kissel Hill. The school started in what was called Withers‟ school house, half a mile from the village, with twenty-seven scholars. I can remember nearly all of them. Some of the boys were barefooted, and all were happy and jolly.

(The following are excerpts from the balance of the article.) My late father Jacob Buch was superintendent. Sunday School was held every two weeks. The school soon increased in number. We had no musical instruments. The room contained low benches, a desk and a wood stove..

After a few years (we) moved to the Kissel Hill Lutheran and Reformed church.
