Hanovers Oldes Resident Comes fro Family Noted for Longevity

Uriah J.M. Baughman, the oldest resident of Hanover, celebrated his 96th birthday anniversary Thursday, receiving congratulations and gifts of remembrances from relatives and friends. Mr. Baughman has been a resident of Hanover for 45 years. He is a Civil War verteran, having served as a member of Captain Barts Company G, 74th Pennsylvanis infrantry. He was discharged at Clarksburg August 6, 1885. Prior to his service in the Army he was employed in the navy yard, Washington D.C.

Mr Baughman was born in West Manheim Township, York county, on July 7, 1825. His parents wer the late John and Mary (BAIR) Baughman. His childhood and yourth were spent on a farm. Later he taught in the township schools and organized the first Sunday School in that section of the county. He served as Justice of the Peace for some years.

Coming from a family that enjoys the distinction of being unusually long lived, Mr Baughman is the last surviving member.

His brother, David, died at the age of 91 years, 11 months and 21 days, his father aged 91 years and 28 days, his sister Lydia, aged 90 years4 months and 13 days, his mother aged 89 years 9 months and 19 days, and his brother Jacob B aged 83 years 3 months and 4days. When these ages are considered it is doubtful of another single family can produce such a record for longevity, and Mr. Baughman, the last survivor, already has outlived his nearest kinsman by almost five years.
