Henry Demuth ... [1]

Trinity Lutheran Church Records, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania has a listing from page 31 of the church record of the birth of Heinrich Demuth, born Sept. 12, 1749, baptized Nov. 19, 1749; parents Heinrich and Anna, both Ref.; sponsors Melchior Fortineux and Barbara, his wife, both Ref. Sponsors for Henry's brother Malachi were listed as Melchior Fortene and wife--possibly these are the same people. 'An Authentic History of Lancaster County in the State of Pennsylvania,' by J.I. Mombert, DD, Lancaster, PA: J.E. Barr & Co, 1869, pages 453-454 gives a brief history of the German Reformed churches in Lancaster County; it states that there was no pastor for the First German Reformed Church from 1748 until January, 1750. Perhaps this is the reason Henry was the only one of the four children born to Heinrich and Anna Demuth in Pennsylvania to be recorded and baptized in Trinity Lutheran Church; the others were all baptized in the First Reformed Church of Lancaster.
