#4 Heinrich or Henry is almost certainly the son baptized at Bern Reformed Church on May 4, 1760. He is listed as a single taxpayer in 1781 and as married in 1784. He married Magdalena Schwenk (name donated by Kathy Stevens). His tombstone at Old Red Church shows he was born June 4, 1760 and died Sept 24, 1814. One of these records is not accurate.

the 1790 census lists 1 male over 16, 2 males under 16 and 3 females. In 1800 his household has four boys under 10, 2 boys 10-16, 2 girls under 10, 3 girls 10-16, Henry at 26-45, Magdalene at 26-45 and a woman over 45 who could be Henry's mother, Anna Maria.

The 1798 tax census lists Henry with 200 acres, a house and a hable-valued at $600.

Henry purchased more land in Brunswick Twp. in 1799 from Peter Zable.

Henry and Magdalene attended both Summer Hill and "Old Red" churches at times. A daughter, Susanna, was born on Sept 26, 1794 and baptized at " Old Red".

Henry died intestate on Sept. 24, 1814. Orphans court Docket-Book No. 3, page 107 establishes his heirs as eldest son Henry (administrator George, William and John (represented by guardian, George Kimmel), Mary and Rebecca were represented by Conrad Schwenk, Elizabeth Hummel (wife of Daniel Hummel), Magdalena (wife of John Alspach), Christena (wife of John Webner), Susanna and Henry's wife Magdalena. Note -Ten children are listed here as compared to 11 in the 1800 census and there were 2 children born after 1800.

Some sort of settlement was made between Henry and William to pay off the interests of the other heirs and the property was then sold to George Heiser (son of Ullerich) and to John Heisler. Final settlement was not made until 1833 which would be after Magdalena's death. She died on the last Tuesday before April 10, 1832 at age 72.

At the final settlement Susanna lists as married to Jacob Heisler Jr., Mary Ann to Fred Stuck and Rebecca (deceased) as having married Matthias App. Henry was married to Hannah (Shetty), William to Catherine ? , and John to Magdalene ?, George was not listed.
