Heinrich Bullinger arrived in Philadelphia aboard the ship Winter Galley and took the oath of allegiance to the British crown on September 5, 1738. He signed with a mark. Spelling of his surname evolved to Bollinger.
Married Elizabeth Wohlraber prior to the 28 March 1750 baptism of their first-known child Johannes (John) in Berks County, Pennsylvania. It is also speculated in Orenia's book that Henry returned to the Palatinates to wed after 1748 and returned in March 1752 with a wife and two children. No Wohlraber family could be found in the colonies at that time and as a deacon of the Longswamp Church he was not on the building committee in 1748 also a Matthias Bollinger left Bosenbach, Zweibrucken, then part of Rhineland, but now France in March 1752. This may be why he is sometimes recorded as Matthias Heinrich or Heinrich Mathias.
Henry Bollinger executed his Rowan County, North Carolina, will on 13 August 1774. He named his wife Elizabeth, sons John "eldest", Henry, Matthias, Frederick, Joseph, Daniel, Philip, Peder, Jacob, and David. He named daughters Elizabeth and Caty. Son John was nominated as executor. Witnesses were Rudolph Conrad and Juorg Bobpst [George Propst].

[Comment: This unmarked burial site more likely is for Heinrich "Henry" Bollinger (1752 Pennsylvania-circa 1803 Lincoln County). He was the son of Heinrich and Elizabeth (Wohlraber) Bollinger.]
Heinrich has a DAR record but service hasn't been proven. http://services.dar.org/Public/DAR_Research/search_adb/?action=full&p_id=A011840
[Comment: It is implausible that immigrant Heinrich Bollinger (born circa 1710 and died circa February 1776) could have contributed military services or provisions during the 1776-1782 Revolutionary War.]

Also, Heinrich Bollinger's proposed wife was born too late (1734) to be the mother of an alleged child born 1738 (Isaac).
