Johann Henrich "Henry" Bomgardner
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 13, 1770
Lancaster County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 22, 1841
Dauphin County
Pennsylvania, USA

Henry's parents were the Rev. Patriot, Pvt Johannes Baumgaertner and wife Catharine, from Londonderry Township, Lebanon County, PA.
"Henry" is named as the husband of Elizabeth Bretz in the book: A GENEALOGY OF THE LUDWUG BRETZ FAMILY (1750-1890), by E. W. S. Parthemore, Harrisburg Publishing Co., Harrisburg, PA, 1890, page 3. Henry's birth and and baptismal dates are extracted from the records found at the Swartara Reformed Congregation, of Jonestown, Lancaster County, (now Lebanon county), PA. Sponsors at his baptism were Henry and his wife Rosina (Laedin) Baumgaertner. He was baptized by Rev. John Bucher, who was pastor of this church from April 1770-June 1779.
Henry is listed as living in Upper Paxtang Twp., Dauphin county, in the 1790 US PA census records. At the time there was only he and his wife in the household, which leads this contributor to believe that Henry and his wife were just recently married.
The tombstone inscriptions in this cemetery were recorded by Wirth historian Jonathan Wirth in 1968, and Henry's birth date coincides with the baptismal records found in the Swatara Reformed Congregation. Information regarding Henry's intestacy records was provided by Sherry Shallenberger in 2000. Uncovered in these records was the name of a second wife "Barbara", who this contributor feels Henry married after Elizabeth died in 1829. Henry and Barbara did not have any children.
