John Hunsicker was born 27 August 1773 in Skippack Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, United States to Henry Hunsicker (1752-1836) and Esther Detweiler (1751-1829) and died 17 November 1847 in Perkiomen Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, United States of unspecified causes. He married Elizabeth Detweiler (1779-1842) 9 May 1797 in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, United States. He married Catherine Unknown (1789-1865) circa 1843 . Ancestors are from the United States, Switzerland.


From A Genealogical History of the Hunsicker Family:

He lived on the farm now owned and occupied by his grandson John S. Hunsicker, Esq., in Perkiomen Township. He was an ordained Mennonite minister for nearly forty years, and succeeded his father, who had been in the ministry fifty-four years, as preacher and Bishop.

The means of obtaining an education were poor when he was young, but natural talent and a strong mind enabled him to acquire knowledge far beyond many of his time.

He was not of an aggressive spirit, but rather of a mild nature and kindly disposition; yet he broke away from some of the rigid and exacting customs peculiar to the sect to which he belonged. He was progressive and availed himself of means for information.

He was a contributing member of the Trappe Literary Society which flourished about 1840, and read many of the books of its library.

His mental characteristics are plainly traceable through his children, giving good evidence in the production of professional talent, as well as character, in his grandchildren, three of whom are distinguished lawyers, three are ministers of the Gospel (though of different denominations), and one occupied for some years the distinguished position of President of the Girard College in Philadelphia.
