Notes: He came to the missions of the Pimeria Alta in 1761 and administered the mission of Átil. Father Pauer recorded the following at his burial: "Padre Joseph Haffenrichter, a native of Wildstein in Noricia, a district of the Kingdom of Bohemia, died here at San Ignacio on March 7, [1762]. He was born January 10, 1729, and entered the Company of Jesus in the year 1754. He came to the misssions of the Pimería Alta in the year 1761. He administered the Mission of Átil, to the west, where he became ill with fever. Because of this and other unknown symptoms he came to this Mission seeking relief, which in no way could be provided him. However, we have hope that in his tender conscience, virtue, zeal, and exemplary disposition and devotion, coupled with his receiving the Holy Sacraments, he has found immediate rejoicing with his God. He was buried in this church on the Epistle side."
