Leonard John Kimmel and Susannah Zimmerman's third child Henry Kimmel was born in 1789 in Glade, Somerset County, Pennsylvania. In 1807, he came to Ohio with his brothers. On June 27, 1813, he married nineteen year old Christina Geddinger, daughter of the German immigrants Martin Geetinger and Elizabeth Bowser. They settled land in Rumley Township, Harrison County, near Jewett, Ohio. Eight children were born to them: Susanna, Jonathon, Henry, Elizabeth, Abraham, Isaac, Christina, and John. Henry Kimmel died in 1826 in Harrison County, Ohio, at age 40. His widow, then only thirty-five years old, continued residence on their farm until her death on October 3, 1894, after having celebrated her hundredth anniversary. Four different houses had been her home during the eighty years of continuous residence on the land where they settled when she was married. The building location was changed but slightly. Only three of her children survived her: Jonathan, whom she lived with, Abraham of German Township, Harrison County, Ohio and Christina, wife of Michael Sawvel, living at Crump, Benton County, Arkansas.


Also father of Susanna Kimmel, Elizabeth Kimmel, Abraham Kimmel, and John Kimmel
