Levi and Juliana Kuhns Fetterman

Levi, son of Sybilla Frantz and Jacob Fetterman, was born in Upper Milford and bought the farm from his father. On Jan 19, 1845, he was married to Juliana, the oldest daughter of 14 children born to Judith Lichtenwalner and Jonathan Kuhns. He and Juliana had ten children.

After buying the farm from his father, he purchased 58 acres of land adding to the 119 acres that his farm set on. Until about five years previous to his death, he was a drover. He was an active Democrat, never missing an election; was a Reformed member of the Old Zionsville church, which he served in the church council for many years, having been an elder for sixteen consecutive years (from the Anniversary History of Lehigh Valley, Vol. 2, © 1914). In addition, he was one of the officers of the Perkiomen National Bank in East Greenville at the time of its organization on September 27, 1875, and by November 1884, he was one of the directors of the bank (from Bean's History of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania).

His farm descended to his son, Samuel K., after his death.
