Buhrman, Alfred a Lutheran minister, was born in Frederick County, Md., in 1826. In 1846 he entered the Baltimore Methodist Episcopal Conference, and preached three years. On account of impaired health he ceased active ministerial labor for a time, and was employed in teaching school about eighteen months. Then he preached at various places in Maryland and Virginia, but again taught school in 1862. The following year he entered the Melancthon Synod, and became pastor of the Lutheran congregations at Sharpsburg and Pleasant Valley. In 1864 he began preaching at Waynesborough, Pa., and remained in that charge seven years. For two and a half years, from 1871, he was pastor at Milton, and for two years, from September, 1873, he labored at Lovettsville, Va. His health failing in 1875, he removed to a farm near Newtown, where, however, he continued to preach until his death, March 23,1877. Mr. Buhrman was a man of fine intellectual powers and marked oratorical ability. See Lutheran Observer, April 6' 1877.
