LOCHMAN, John George, clergyman, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 2 December, 1773; died in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 10 July, 1826. He was graduated at the University of Pennsylvania in 1789 and was licensed to preach in 1794, and became pastor of the Lutheran congregation at Lebanon, Pa., where he labored for twenty-one years, also serving several congregations in the vicinity. In 1815 he became pastor at Harrisburg, where he remained until his death. He was president of the first convention of the general synod held at Frederick, Maryland, in 1821. He devoted much time to the preparation of young men for the ministry, and many of his students occupied high offices in his church. He published a "Farewell Sermon" (Lebanon, Pennsylvania, 1815); "Introductory Sermon" (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 1815); "History, Doctrine, and Discipline of the Lutheran Church" (i818); "Evangelical Catechism" (1822); and various sermons and addresses.--His son, Augustus Herman, born in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, 5 October, 1802, was graduated at the University of Pennsylvania in 1823, and studied theology under his father. After his ordination by the ministerium of Pennsylvania he became pastor of the Lutheran church at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, as his father's successor, after having charge of the Lutheran congregation at York, Pennsylvania, which he served for forty-four years. He has translated several volumes from the German, which have been published by the Lutheran board of publication, Philadelphia, in its "Fatherland" series.
