Born {ca. 1732 [Germany] of Berks and York Co., PA} (8)
Baptized
Died                                                          
Buried
Spouse: {Bernard Seidel} (9)
Keith Dull believes she is the daughter of JPL and identical to Maria Magdalena wife of Bernard Seidel. Dull states this couple moved from Berks to York and their son Johann Peter was sponsored by Johann Peter [JPL] and Margaretha Lenhart [grandparents] in 1760. Dull says Bernard died before the baptism of his last child (1761) and Maria Magdalena has not been located since. (8A) (9)
CHILDREN - Six children according to Keith Dull. (8A)

Born [Germany]
Baptized
Died 1810 (5)
Buried Bedford, now Somerset, PA, (MF 1810 on stone) (5)
Spouse: Johan Ludwig Friedline
According to family tradition, Lenhart was the maiden name of the wife of Johan Ludwig Friedline and descendants believe JPL is her father. The cemetery on Friedline land includes some Lenhart stones; the land had two neighboring Lenhart tracts; James R. Lenhart's database (undocumented) links the cemetery Lenharts to descendants of JPL's son Philip. There is one anecdotal source that an Anna Margaret was a member of JPL's family.(12)

CHILDREN - Rinkenbach lists two children baptized in York Co. (his research did not include Christopher's migration). Descendants on the Lenhart List have more children; not all agree on the additional names.

Dull lists death 1837; source not known. Has Fred been located in census post 1790? Rinkenbach speculated this Fred might be the Frederick Leonard listed as a Revolutionary War soldier from PA. Known descendants of this Leonard think it unlikely; however, they have not yet located the parents of their Frederick. (28)
CHILDREN: No known children; apparently his wife was a widow, with a daughter, (24) before marrying Frederick.

Rinkenbach says no wife is mentioned in will but apparently "wife" is mentioned (not by name).
Godfrey's will was probated in York Co. but no one has reported a grave for Godfrey or his wife. Perhaps they are buried elsewhere with one of their children. Godfrey apparently was in the York Co. militia during the Revolutionary War as Ensign, later Captain. (20A) (20B) For more information about Godfrey and his clocks see Arlean Child's article on Greg Lenhart's site.)
CHILDREN - Rinkenbach(4) lists five children for this family; another source(25) names five children and "two other daughters."

REMARKS ABOUT THE FORMAT, ETC. OF THE GROUP SHEET

Spelling and name variations. On this web site, Johan Peter Lenhart (JPL) refers to the patriarch of the family; however, many spelling variations appear in various records. On this group sheet, the given names of the sons match those in JPL's Will. Other researchers may use different variations ("Joh Christof" rather than "Christopher").

{      } indicates unconfirmed and/or questioned by other researchers

Information compiled from many sources and may contain errors 

Unconventional numbering
(such as 1A) and other irregularities are due to notes being added and/or consolidated. Several of these footnotes refer to other footnotes in this list.

RESEARCHERS - Unless noted otherwise, researchers are listed under their direct ancestor. See Profiles for additional information including links to websites. Most can be reached on the RootsWeb Lenhart List.

(8A) Keith Dull revised. In November 2001, Dull sent me a copy of his draft of revised Lenhart material. See (8)

(8A.1) Keith Dull. (8) (8A) Inference? Philip Lenhart and Anna Bossert sponsored a baptism in 1752 and Philip and Anna Bossert sponsored in 1758, according to information from Robert L. Riffle (his source: Church Record For The Dunkel's Reformed Congregation in Greenwich Twp, Berks Co. [PA] 1746-1832, Copied Jan. 1929 by Wm. J. Hinke).

(8B) Friedlein family baptisms in Manchester Twp, York Co., PA, are listed in Dull's book (8) but Anna Margaretha, wife of Johan Ludwig Friedlein is not listed as a Lenhart.

(9) Keith Dull(8) (8A) inferred from Berks Co. and York Co. baptism records (per his 3/3/99 post to the now extinct lenhart/listbot). In Berk's Co., Leonard Seidel and Maria Magdalene Lenhart sponsored a baptism in 1752; a child of Leonard Seydel & Magdalene was baptized in 1758, according to information from Robert L. Riffle (his source: Church Record For The Dunkel's Reformed Congregation in Greenwich Twp, Berks Co. [PA] 1746-1832, Copied Jan. 1929 by Wm. J. Hinke). According to Dull, Johann Peter [JPL] and Margaretha Lenhart sponsored [grandson] Johann Peter [Seidel] in a 1760 York County baptism by Rev. Lischy. See (8) (8A)

(10) Here are some questions/suggestions from Nancy Lenhart Thomas: Documentation - What about their father-in-laws' Wills? or their children's Wills? I would think the land transactions in Philadelphia, Chester, Berks and York counties in PA would be the first ones to look at. Especially under their married names.

(11) Occupation "Cooper" according to Dull (8) .

(12) In an article entitled "John L. Lenhart, Chaplain of the Cumberland" by Charles Berhkeimer, 1966 published in METHODIST HISTORY, there is the following quote: "For those who are genealogically inclined, more is known of the Lenhart family. Henry's father, Godfrey, was one of the nine children of immigrants Johan Peter and Maria Margaretha Lenhart -- the other known children being Anna Margaret, Philip, Frederick, Johan Jacob and Johan George. Henry's brother, William Yost Lenhart, was a prominent mathematician and poet." The article is about a descendant of Godfrey, not Anna Margaret, but the mention of her name is promising. What was the author's source? Perhaps one of those bio entries? For Godfrey? One of his sons/descendants? (The article provided by descendant Dorothy Jones.)

(23) Based on baptism citation.

(24) Will of Catharine Lenhart, dated 3 Feb 1809, probated August 17, 1811, York Co., PA, refers to "Jacob Zinn Son of my brother Nicholas Zinn . . .." Apparently, Catharine married 1st Gantzert and had a daughter who married Cremer/Kramer/etc. Posts on the now extinct lenhart/listbot by Keith Dull and Margaret Gonzalez are the source of the Gantzert information.

(25) Biographical Annals of Franklin County, Pennsylvania, prepared in part by George O. Seilhamer, Genealogical Publishing Co., Chicago, IL, 1905. Entry under HARBAUGH and WALTER FAMILIES, YOST HERBACH, pp. 273-274, includes daughter "MARY ELIZABETH (born on Good Friday in 1753 - died June 18, 1835), married Godfrey Lenhart (born March 17, 1754 - died Aug. 15, 1819)."

(26) Will of Godfrey Lenhart dated 2 Jul 1819, [filed] 23 Aug 1819; York Co., PA. Link to will is above under his entry.

(26A) This information posted on the now extinct Lenhart listbot: YORK COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA CHURCH RECORDS OF THE 18TH CENTURY, VOL. 3; under First Reformed and Trinity First Reformed Church, York, page 82, "On a loose page in this book but apparently torn from a family Bible, a contemporaneous with the events, are these data: Godfrey Lenhart intermirred with Elizabeth Holtzinger on November 14, 1778." (See Name of Elizabeth.)

(26B) Both Rinkenbach and Dull mention Good Friday, 1753, but report different death dates: June 16, 1824 (Rinkenbach (4)) and June 18, 1835 (Dull(8)); neither author cites sources for his information. Dull's data are consistent with Biographical Annals of Franklin County.(25) Rinkenbach's death is consistent with the below item from Marriages and Deaths from The York Recorder 1821-1830, by F. Edward Wright, 1999 (reprint), Willow Bend Books, Westminster, Maryland (the stated age suggests a birth year of 1750 which does not match any of the other sources):

"June 22 1824 (Tuesday). Died on Wednesday morning last Mrs. Maria Elizabeth Lenhart, relict of the late Godfrey Lenhart, Esq., of this borough in her 74th year."

(27) "Our Lenhart (Leonhardt) Ancestors." Compiled by Chas. R. Shultz, R.D. #2, Mayville, NY. Three typed pages, undated. He states: "Some of this account is taken from a pamphlet on the Lenharts, by the Historical Research Bureau, of Washington, D.C." No other sources cited. My copy is from the York County Heritage Trust (formerly the Historical Society of York Co.), York, PA.

(28) Mark Leonard, 2001 correspondence. His Frederick Leonard, c.1760-c.1841, "Fought for the Penn Line before moving to Virginia with his wife Anna Braun (Brown). He then fought for the Virginia line for 4 years and 9 months . . . . " The couple married in Lancaster, PA. [With a little creativity, one can come up with a scenario that matches this Leonard with our Fred but . . . .]
