Pancratius John Muench, an enterprising young farmer residing three miles north of Perryville, Mo., is a native of the county, born on March 1, 1858. He is the eldest son of John P. and Rosa Ann (Meyer) Muench (see sketch].
He grew to manhood on his fatherís farm, and on June 14, 1885, was united in marriage with Anna C. Ochs, a daughter of John C. Ochs. She was born in Perry County, Mo., on November 19, 1863.
After his marriage Mr. Muench settled on his present farm of 101 acres of valuable land, which he is rapidly improving. His political views accord with the principles of the Republican party, and in religion he and wife are members of the Lutheran Church.
The Goodspeed Publishing Company compiled a series of histories of various counties in the U.S. in the late 19th century. The information in the History of Southeast Missouri, published in 1888, was provided by the contemporary residents of Perry County and her neighboring counties. The biographies are a valuable source of genealogical information, despite a few minor inaccuracies. We are glad to present the transcribed biographies here for anyone researching Perry County's history.
