HENRY BRENNEMAN

AMERICAN GENERATION 2.1 - FIRST CHILD OF CHRISTIAN BRENNEMAN (I)


HENRY BRENNEMAN was born about 1725. 

On April 15, 1758, Henry advertised for sale, in Sowers' paper, his farm of 188 acres on Skippack Creek in Towamencin, of which he says 10 acres are good meadows and 10 more can be made into meadows.  On the property were a stone house, a blockhouse, granary and stable, and there were two good orchards.

In 1769 he moved to Upper Merion Twp, Montgomery Co., PA, where he bought a farm of 150 acres.  On this farm he lived until 1783, when his name disappears from the assessment lists.

In 1787 Catharine Clemens, widow of John, of Buckingham Twp, Bucks Co., PA, makes a bequest to Catharine, daughter of Henry Brenneman, but unfortunately does not give her residence at the time.  This is the final mention found of Henry Brenneman.  There is a tradition that he migrated to the eastern shore of Virginia.
