John Christian Munsinger

M, b. 18 December 1817, d. 21 September 1917
     John Christian Munsinger was born on 18 December 1817 at Bruchmühlbach, Sickinger Höhe, Palatinate (now Rhein-Pfalz), Germany, Stated his age correctly in the 1880 and previous censuses. Subsequently, five additional years appeared on his stated age, in support of his (false) claim to have been born in 1812 just in advance of Napoleon's march to Russia. His headstone was engraved with the age based on the story, not the true birth year.1,2 He was the son of Christian Adam Munzinger and Maria Eva Krick. John Christian Munsinger was christened on 21 December 1817 at Lambsborn, Palatinate; Christening record shows name as "Christian".3 He married Sarah Fowl, daughter of Godfrey Faul and Sarah Gardner, on 4 July 1840 at Oberlin, Lorain Co., OH. John Christian Munsinger lived in 1850 at Russia Twp., Lorain Co., OH, From sometime after 1830 to 1866. Moved family to Jones County, Iowa in 1866. Moved to Smith County, Kansas 1881, after buying properties there for his sons during the preceding several years. Was living with son James Munsinger, Ames, Iowa, as of the 1900 census. The family story is that he "rotated" among the households of his children after he sold his farm in 1892, staying with each family "for as long as they could stand it."4

He married Julina Fuller, daughter of Enoch Fuller and Karenhappuch Parmer/Palmer, on 23 January 1850 at Oberlin, Lorain Co., OH, from Wilda Spaulding's letter dated October 29, 1987 to the Oberlin College Archives:

"Sarah Fowl died after her fourth child was born. Sarah knew that she couldn't get well so asked her best girlfriend, Julina, to marry John and help raise the babies. That must have been the reason Julina quit school."

The ceremony was performed by Rev. John Morgan in the Morgan home in Oberlin.5

John Christian Munsinger lived in June 1860 at Russia Twp., Lorain Co., OH.6 He lived in June 1880 at Rome Twp., Jones Co., IA. Occupation: Farming and veterinary consulting.
Note: Quoted from Ray Taylor letter:

Cousin Wilda has a souvenir pamphlet of the early settlers of Smith County, Kansas. Great-grandfather John was honored with his picture on the back. She states that it contained just his picture and under the picture was "Born in Germany, December 10, 1812, located in Smith County in 1880." She states further "He did buy a lot of land -- the place where my Grandfather Finn lived; across the road where Uncle Will lived (south of Smith Center) and also land west of there a couple of miles or so, the Uncle Ed Munsinger place. My Grandfather Tucker bought that place from Uncle Ed. That is where Aubrey and I were born. The old rock house was still there about 20 years ago when I took Mother Vivian to Smith County. She said the same wallpaper was still on the wall. Cousin Charles Taylor was homesteading here when he met Elizabeth Munsinger.

Article in Topeka Capital, November 30, 1912:

CELEBRATE HUNDREDTH BIRTHDAY DECEMBER 10

John Munsinger Making Great Preparations to Have Children With Him

Special to the Capital.

     Smith Center, Kan., Nov. 30 -- John Munsinger, a resident of this county for a third of a century, is making great preparations to celebrate his one hundredth birthday at the home of one of his sons in Howard, this state, December 10. Elaborate preparations are being made for the event and all the children, thirteen in number, will assemble from their homes in all parts of the United States and assist in making the occasion a memorable one. As the plans were originally made, the celebration was to have been held in this city, but later it was decided to change the gathering place to Howard, where the largest hall in town has been secured to accommodate the gathering. While the occasion is one in which only relatives will participate it is expected that there will be present, including children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren, a crowd of two hundred. An elaborate banquet contributed by the sons and daughters will be one of the features.
     Grandfather Munsinger was born in Germany, December 10, 1812. He came to America in 1826 (it was actually 1828) and to this county in 1880. At the age of twenty-five he was married for the first time and to this union four children were born. His wife dying, he was married a second time many years later and became the father of ten more children. One of these, a daughter, died in the latter seventies. Wife number two died in this county in 1880 (actually it was in Rome Twp., Jones County, Iowa). The thirteen surviving children, all of whom are making arrangements to be present when their father and honored centenarian celebrates his birthday are as follows: George and Ed Munsinger and Sarah Knickerbocker, Moline, Kan; Mary Smith of South Dakota; John Munsinger of Oregon; Elizabeth Taylor of Denver, Colo; J. K. Munsinger, Howard, Kan., J.M. Munsinger, Ames, Iowa; C. G. Munsinger, Harlan, Kan; Susie Taylor, McCracken, Kan; Rosie L. Dewey, Oakland, Calif; Will and F. S. Munsinger, this city.
     Although having attained an age that few men ever see, Mr. Munsinger is remarkably active, both mentally and physically. He still takes a keen interest in all affairs of the world and nothing delights him more than a romp with some of his great or great great grand children. One of the feats that he delights in performing for some visitor is springing into the air and cracking his heels together three times before alighting. Asked how to reach five score years his reply is invariably, "Be temperate in all things and worry not."


OBITUARY:

     Friday evening, September 21, 1917, at about 4 o'clock, John Munsinger passed away, at the home of his son, J. K. Munsinger, at the great age of 104 years, 9 months and 11 days. Grandpa Munsinger had been in his usual good health until a few weeks ago, when it was noticed that he was growing weaker and less disposed to walk around. He suffered no pain and his last days were passed in peace and quiet. A few days before his death he refused sustenance, and quietly awaited his final summons.
     John Munsinger was a familiar figure in Howard life for many years, and until the hot weather of the past summer came on, he was to be seen on our streets almost as frequently as any of our citizens. He retained his faculties to a remarkable degree, his eyesight being excellent and his hearing but very slightly dulled. When he was 103 years old, he appeared before the Old Settlers' Reunion in this city, made a speech, and danced a jig. He retained an accurate recollection of the incidents of his youth and mature years and enjoyed talking with his friends.
     Funeral services were held at the Christian Church in this city, Sunday at 2:30 and a great crowd of relatives, friends, and neighbors filled the church and the surrounding space, Rev. Glen C. Wade conducted the service, and was assisted by Rev. O. L. Weir and a quartet of singers. The remains were taken to Olin, Iowa, Monday for interment at the old home.
     The following brief sketch of the life of this good old man was read at the funeral:

     John Munsinger was born in Wittenberg, Germany, December 10, 1812, died at the home of his son J. K. Munsinger, in Howard, Kansas, Sept. 21, 1917, age 104 years, 9 months, and 11 days.
     He came with his parents to America in 1824 landing at New York, then going west and settling in Lorain county, Ohio. In 1833 he was married to Miss Sarah Fowler. To this union four children were born, two boys and two girls. His wife dying in 1849.
     He was again united in marriage to Miss Julina Fuller. To this union were born ten children, six boys and four girls. In the year 1866 he moved with his family to Jones county, Iowa where the wife and mother passed away May 2, 1880. In 1881 he moved to Smith county, Kansas. In 1892 he sold out and broke up the home and since then has spent his days visiting his children. Three daughters have gone on before.
     There are left to mourn his loss: Geo. and Ed. of Moline, Ks. J. P. of Nehalem, Oregon. J.K. of Howard, Ks. J. M. of Ames, Iowa. C.G. of Harlan, Ks. W. G. and F. S. of Smith Center, Ks. Mrs. Susie Taylor of Scott City, Ks. Mrs. Rosa Dewey of Oakland, California and Mrs. Elizabeth Taylor of Ames, Iowa. One brother, David Munsinger of Nebraska. Eighty-seven grand children. Seventy great grandchildren. Fourteen great-great grandchildren and a host of friends.
     Grandpa united with the Lutheran Church when but a young man, but lived the most of his life in the Christian Church of which he died a true and faithful member.

Per Wilda (Tucker) Spaulding, the John Munsinger house in Rome Township was built in two sections. The attic was made into a room that had a separate entrance from the front porch, where travelling salesmen (or John on occasion) would stay.

He died on 21 September 1917 at Howard, Elk Co., KS, at age 99. He was buried in September 1917 at Green Center Cemetery, Rome Twp., Jones Co., IA, Findagrave #75022249.

Quoted from a letter written by Wilda Tucker Spaulding:

Uncle John spent many years in Central City, Colorado working in a grocery store and delivering groceries. Some of his stories concerned those who were sinking shafts trying to hit the rich veins of gold. He told of a man and his wife who would sink their shaft until they ran out of money for blasting powder. They would stop working, she would take in washing, he would do odd jobs and deliver the clean clothes. Finally when they again had a stake they would go back to sinking the shaft. These two hit it rich but the ones who had had them to wash clothing for them always remembered that they were once very poor and reminded them at every opportunity.



Later, he went to Oregon and worked as a bookkeeper for a lumber company at Salem Bay. Later, he did some salmon fishing taking out Easterners to catch salmon and dug clams. He spent many years in Oregon. He lived in Oregon per 1912 Topeka Capital article re: 100th birthday celebration, and was still living in Nehalem as of his father's 1917 obituary.
