Holder Family continued, Descendants of George Holder

Third Generation

Children of George Holder and Barbara Steiner
Jacob Holder (b. & d. 1763)

Children of George Holder and Elizabeth Bieler
*Johann David Holder (1770-?)
George Ludwig Holder (1773-1816) m. Elizabeth Morris (?-1814)
Anna Johanna Holder (1776-1820), did not marry; her will provides an interesting and rather charming list of the possessions of a single Moravian sister in 1820.
Anna Elizabeth Holder (1776-?) m. Joseph Leinbach (1769-1841)
Heinrich Holder (1778-1865) m. Maria Hein (1783-1853), moved to Lawrence Co. IN

*Previously we noted that Johann David Holder appears as a saddlemaker's apprentice in the Moravian records, but then is lost from view, and we wondered if he moved away or died young. We now strongly suspect that he went to Pennsylvania and that he was the father of Henry Holder (1803-1848) who married Elizabeth Pinkley. Thanks to Pat Smith for this information! DNA testing on a sample from a descendant of Henry and Elizabeth confirms that Henry is part of our Holder family.
