But again, there is nothing in the records to indicate this name change occured. In the year 1746 only five and they stop with April.
The Pastor goes on to say that "no marriage record for Valentine Leonhardt is found in Rockenhausen. The rest of that year is omitted altogether." This is the year (1746) that Valentine left Katzenbach for Philadelphia.
The fourth error is that the Pastor states that "Michael Leonhardt's wife was named Anna Catherine".
On May 24, 1904, Pastor Brandstettner of the Rockenhausen Reformed Church responded in writing to an assumed request of genealogy information by members of the Leonard clan of Davidson County, NC and perhaps others.
His response in German was translated by Aleide Reichenbach of Collegeville, PA.
The first obvious error is that the Pastor states that "the parents of John Paul Leonhardt were Martin Leonhardt and his wife Anna Barbara (Spohn)". His first marriage in the Rockenhausen records was indeed to Anna Barbara Spohn (the widow of David Spohn) on Nov. This marriage record of 1704 states that she was from Katzenbach and Martin Leonhardt was a farmer from Niedermoschel.
The third error is that the Pastor lists the brothers of Valentine.
