BIRD'S EYE VIEW
THE LENHART FAMILY OF GREENWICH AND ALBANY TWPS.,
BERKS COUNTY, AND YORK COUNTY, PA.
By Wm. H. Rinkenbach, A.B., M.S. 1937
The titled ms. discusses Johan Peter (1708-1774) and Maria Margaretha (1713-1777) Lenhart who came to America in 1748, and their nine known sons. Also included are grandchildren located in the records of the area researched. Thereafter, the ms. includes only descendants of grandson Heinrich Lenhart (1773-1837), the founder of Lenhartsville, PA. There are about 170 names, over 100 link to Heinrich; in other words, over 60% of the names in the ms. are Henrich's descendants and their spouses. Please read the full Introduction (includes link to the complete ms.).
I entered Rinkenbach's names into a separate database in Brother's Keeper, a genealogy program. Below are links to two charts from this program - these are PDF files. Chart 1 lists Johan Peter Lenhart (JPL), children, and grandchildren appearing in Rinkenbach's ms. Chart 2 lists descendants of JPL grandson Heinrich, founder of Lenhartsville, PA appearing in the ms. These charts provide a bird's eye view of all the names in Rinkenbach. Keep in mind that Rinkenbach researched JPL and related names only in the counties in his title. Hence, his ms. is by no means complete (and may contain errors).
The chart font is small - the only way to get three generations on a page. The results may be difficult to read on the web but may be clearer if you print the page (results depend on your computer, printer and/or browser).
Chart 1 PDF - JPL ~Three generations*
