Birth: Nov. 14, 1756
Death: Nov. 14, 1803
Howard
Centre County
Pennsylvania, USA

He was said to have been born at sea while on voyage from Europe to Pennsylvania. His father is said to have died during that voyage. Henry and his brother Samuel arrived in Philadelphia in the care of their widowed mother. Husband of Catherine Sternaman and Nancy Anna Schenck. Said to be a veteran of the Revolutionary War. Died of injuries resulting from being kicked in the stomach by a colt.

Per list compiled by Conestoga Historical Society, Henry "Bletcher" served in the 1776 Flying Camp as a private -- see also PA Archives, 7th series, p. 634. He was also listed as serving in Capt. Jacob Metzger's Company of the Lancaster County Militia, 4th battalion, 3rd Company, 3rd class. As all 8 classes were called up in 1777, we can assume that he served in this capacity as well. --
Records of the Comptroller General list his name as Henry Pletsher, Lancaster County, 4th Battalion, 3rd Company, 3rd Class. Authority: C/R Date Aug. 10, 1782 Published: A(5) VII 436-438.
