Henrich Feldhausen, born in German Holstein and age 38 when he came as one of the first settlers in 1753, appears to have been a jack of all trades, as the Moravian Records describe him as "shoe-maker, carpenter, mill-wright, cooper, sieve-maker, turner, and also Pennsylvania farmer." By 1763 he had returned to Pennsylvania.

Erhard Heckedorn, born 1726, married Felicitas Grosch in 1762. He died in Bethabara in 1763.

Her relation if any to the family of George, Charles and Joseph Holder, is unknown; born in 1738, she is too old to be the daughter of any of these, and she is not listed among their siblings in baptismal records. She died in Bethabara in 1764, and William returned to Bethlehem PA, where he died of smallpox in 1767.
