Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 9, 1718
Bergen County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Oct. 14, 1805
Shelby County
Kentucky, USA

Henry Banta was the father of twenty-one children, and is said to have left a larger number of descendants than any other man in Kentucky. Records indicate he was buried on George Bergen's farm in Shelby Co., being the frist burial in that graveyard. He was a member of the church at Hackensack in 1741. He removed from Bergen County to Somerset County, N.J., and was an Elder of the church at Bedminster, Oct. 25, 1758. The baptismal records of that church have not been perserved, but at least four of his children were borh while he was living in that county, whose date of birth can be determined. About ten years later, with a colony from New Jersey he removed to Conewago, York County, PA., near the present site of Gettysbury, and was a member of the church there at its formation. m.
