Henrich Clemmer (1700-1791), Bishop Valentine Klemmer's son, put his name on a deed for the Lower Salford Mennonite Meetinghouse in 1738, married Maria about 1740, and purchased 156 acres from preacher Dielman Kolb. This property is located at the corner of Allentown Road and Lower Road in Franconia Township, Montgomery County. The original log house is incorporated in the present house and is a rare example of Swiss-German Medieval Architecture.
Because some researchers believe that all Mennonite Clemmers in PA were of the same family, Henry is shown as a child of Valentine, but this is not proven. It is possible he immigrated on ship "Alexander and Ann" September 1730

Another child of Henrich and Maria Clemmer was a daughter Anna who married Jacob Geil. She is named in his will as deceased, but her share of estate passes to Jacob.
