Henry Guerth
Birth: Nov., 1837
Hannoversche Landkreis
Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), Germany
Death: Jan. 9, 1896
Baltimore City
Maryland, USA

Henry Gürth arrived in Baltimore, Maryland, from Germany, on 31 Dec 1959 at the age of 22 years.

Henry married Caroline (Struth) Guerth ["Lena"] (1843 - 12 Jan 1887) on 24 Dec 1865 in Baltimore City, Maryland.

In the 1870 U.S. Census, Henry and Lena were living in the 9th Ward of Baltimore City, Maryland, and he was "working in a lager beer saloon". Lena's mother, Elise, was living with them.

In the 1880 U.S. Census, Henry and Lena were living at 12 Frederick Street in the 9th Ward of Baltimore City, and he was "working at a restaurant."

Henry's second wife was probably Clementine (?) Guerth as his death certificate says he was married. Clementine Guerth was a witness to the baptism of Henry's granddaughter, Caroline Maria Clementine Guerth, on 22 Aug 1892.

Henry died at the age of 59 years, 3 months.

"On January 9, HENRY GUERTH, aged 59 years. Funeral from his late residence, No. 320 South Sharp street, Sunday, at 2 P.M. [Omit flowers]"

In the 1899 Baltimore City Directory, Clementine Guerth and several of Henry's sons lived at 320 South Sharp Street in Baltimore City, and she was a "milliner."

In the 1900 U.S. Census, Clementine Guerth (born Oct 1848) was a widow and she lived in Washington, DC. In the 1910 U.S. Census, Clementine Guerth lived in Philadelphia, PA, with her daughter and son-in-law, Robert and Martha Tees.

On 18 May 1883, Henry Guerth purchased Lots #39 and #53 in Area F of Baltimore Cemetery Company. The lots were paid for by Joseph Gerbrick. For some reason, Henry's death certificate says he was buried in Loudon Park Cemetery on 12 Jan 1896, but family records show he is buried in Baltimore Cemetery.
