Biography

Barbara was born about 1702[1][2]

Place: likely Germany, since her parents did not come to America until 1717.

She was the daughter of Daughter of Abraham Kendig Herr and Anna Bar.

Herr descendant #13
Barbara Herr was a granddaughter of Hans Herr[3], one of the first Mennonite settlers in Lancaster County in 1710, who was instrumental in convincing his Swiss Brethren to emigrate to its fertile land along the Pequea Creek. Many of the Herr family, including Hans's children and grandchildren, emigrated during the next decade. The Hans Herr House, a stone structure built in 1719 by Rev Christian Herr (brother of Abraham), is still standing and is considered to be the oldest dwelling in Lancaster County. It has been estimated that Hans Herr has more than 15,000 descendants (as of the turn of the 20th century).

Barbara Herr bore four children by her first husband, Henry Miller, whom she married in 1725 in , Chester, , Province of Pennsylvania.[4]

After his death, she remarried to David Martin after 1727 in Springville, Lancaster, , Province of Pennsylvania[5], by whom she bore nine more children.[6].

She died on 8 Aug 1742[2][7][8] in Weaverland, Province of Pennsylvania[9]

She died on the day her last son, George, was born. Obviously she died of childbirth complications.

Burial

Her burial location is unknown[10]

possibly in the Weaverland Cemetery, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
