Looking for info on Henry Lesch, died Aug. 1807 in Manheim Twp., York Co. PA.I have an abstract of his will, names wife Catherina and (assuming his children) Zacharias, Henry, Elizabeth-mar. to George Leininger, and Catherina-mar. to Henry Sprinkle (Sprenkel).
Believe this family may have come to York Co. from Montgomery Co. PA.Found baptismal records at Trappe church for Zacharias (b. 1767) and Catherina (b. 1774).parents names given as Heinrich Lesch and Catherina.Also found marriage record for Jan. 1766 in same church for Heinrich, son of Martin and for Catherina Bliczli, dau. of Martin (believe this surname may be Blickle or Bleckle).
Baptismal record found at Sherman's (St. David's) Union church in Manheim Twp., York Co. PA for Johan Henry, son of Henry and Catherina Lesch in Jan. 1783.
Have found tax records in 1795 and 1801 and also census 1790; this is the only Lesch family in Manheim Twp., York Co. PA in that time frame.
Trying to determine if this family in York Co. is the same family from Montgomery Co.Also need to determine if son Johan Henry Lesch is the same Henry Lesch (later spelled Lesh), married to Mary [Unknown] who moved to Stark County, Ohio around 1814 and raised his family there.
