Leinbach Family

First Generation

Johannes Leinbach was born in 1674 in Langenselbold, Isenberg, Hesse, Germany, son of Johann Heinrich Leimbach (Leinbach) and Anna Barbara Lerch. He had several siblings whose baptisms are recorded in German church records, but he appears to be the only one who emigrated to America. He married Anna Elisabeth Kleis, daughter of Johann Adam Kleis and Elisabeth Schilling, in 1700 in Altenhaszlau, Hanau, Germany, and immigrated with his family in 1723, settling in the Oley Valley, Berks Co. PA (then Philadelphia County). There the family became associated with the Moravian Church, although Johannes himself remained a Lutheran. His wife and most of his children joined the Moravian congregation at Bethlehem in 1742.

Second Generation

Children of Johannes and Anna Elisabeth Leinbach
Johann Friedrich Leinbach (1703-1784) m. Amelia Elisabeth Frey (1703-1784),
a daughter of Henry (Heinrich) Frey and Maria Anna Catherine Levering
Johann Heinrich Leinbach (1705-1777) stayed in Berks Co. PA. His wife was Johanna Salome Hermann.
Johanna Elisabeth Leinbach (1708-1712)
Johannes Leinbach (1712-1766) m. Anna Catharina Rheim (1716-1803)
Johanna Elisabeth Leinbach (1714-1716)
Johanna Maria Leinbach (1718-?) m. Abraham Rheim, lived Berks Co. PA
Maria Barbara Leinbach (1722-1810) m. 1) Frederick Martin, a missionary to the West Indies who died there in 1750. She married 2) David Nitschmann (1696-1772), a Moravian bishop.

Third Generation

Johann Friedrich Leinbach settled at Graceham, Frederick County, Maryland in April 1767. He married Amelia Elisabeth Frey (1717-1784)
[birthdate corrected 2/20/12], a daughter of Henry (Heinrich) Frey and Maria Anna Catherine Levering. There is no known relationship to our Frey family. Some descendants of this couple spell the name Linebaugh.

Children of Johann Friedrich Leinbach and Amelia Elisabeth Frey
Johannes Leinbach (1738-1746)
Heinrich Christian Linebach (1739-1792) m. Anna Rosina Paus
Jacob Leinbach (1740-1816) m. Susanna Margaretha Neun/Nein (1745-?), d/o Johann Casper and Barbara Neun
Benjamin Leinbach (1741-1823) m. Anna Margaretha Nuss
*Elisabeth Leinbach (1743-1820) see notes below
Anna Leinback (1745-1787) m. Enoch Frey (abt. 1742-1810)
Johanna Leinbach (1746-1768) m. Jacob Protzman
stillborn son (1747)
Joseph Adam Leinbach / Linebaugh (1748-1832) m. Maria Shaw
Maria Leinbach (1750-?) m. John Stover
Magdalena Leinbach (1751-1819) m. Johannes Weller
Johannes / John Leinbach (1753-1818) m. Anna Maria Holzapple (d. 1839)
Catharina Leinbach (1757-1806) m. Frederick Peter Kreider (1754-1836)
Daniel Leinbach (1760-1826) m. 1) Margaret Weller, 2) Magdalena Hartman
Frederick Leinbach (1760-bef. 1782)
Samuel Leinbach (1762-aft. 1820) m. Maria Elizabeth Messner

Some of the children in this family changed the spelling of their name to Linebaugh.

*We have received conflicting information on the husband of Elisabeth Leinbach. Did she move to Graceham MD with her parents, and marry Hans "Philip" George Kuhn, Jr. (1740-1797), s/o Hans Philip George Kuhn Sr., or did she marry Jeremiah Denke of Bethlehem PA, his third wife? There is an Elisabeth Leinbach Denke buried in the old Moravian graveyard in Bethlehem, with the 1743-1820 dates, who is thought to be her. On the other hand, the Graceham documentation also looks plausible and persuasive.

Thanks to Robert Leinbach for additional information on this family, added February 20, 2012.


Johannes and Anna Catharina Leinbach moved to NC in 1765 with seven of their children, primarily to return to a simpler, less worldly way of life and to escape the growing commericalism of the Philadelphia area. Prior to the move he had purchased a tract of 2000 acres, which was divided among his five younger sons at his death in 1766. They settled near Bethania. Some descendants became members of the congregation there, while others remained separate.

Children of Johannes Leinbach and Anna Catharina Rheim

There was apparently one more child, mentioned in his memoir, whose name is unknown.

Fourth Generation

Children of Frederick Leinbach and Maria Margaretha Eschenbach
Johannes Leinbach (1772-1773)
Johann Friedrich Leinbach (1774-1800)

Johanna Salome Leinbach (1781-1821) m. Friedrich Heinrich Schumann (1777-1862)
Elisabeth Leinbach (1783-1819)
Andreas Leinbach (1785-?)

This family lived in Hope, New Jersey, until sometime after the birth of their last child, and then moved to Pennsylvania. Friedrich and Maria Margaretha came to Salem in 1808 from Nazareth with their grandson Carl Leinbach. Johanna Salome Leinbach must have come earlier, as she married Friedrich Heinrich Schumann in 1802, apparently in North Carolina.

Anna Barbara Leinbach (1775-?)
Elias Leinbach
Anna Maria Leinbach

The older children in this family were born in North Carolina, but it appears that the family eventually moved back to Pennsylvania.

Samuel Joseph Leinbach (1814-?)
Verona Theresa Leinbach (b. & d. 1817)
James Franklin Leinbach (1820-?) m. Mary Cox in 1840

*This Jacob's birthdate was given as 21 Jun 1798, death on 4 Jul 1799, and burial at Salem Moravian. The Jacob Leinbach buried at Salem was born on 7 Jul 1798, however, which suggests he was the twin of Traugott Leinbach, son of Johannes and Elisabeth Transou Leinbach. In support of this is the observation that Joseph has a boy under age 10 in the 1800 census, who is otherwise not accounted for. Only one Jacob Leinbach is listed as buried at Salem. Can anyone confirm for us which one it is?


Children of Johann Christian Leinbach and Elizabeth Fernsler
Gottlieb Leinbach (1800-?) m. 1) Sulamith Rights (1797-1835), 2) Susannah Hendricks, 3) Lucy ?, 4) Mary Spainhour, d/o Michael Spainhour and Sarah Stallings

Lewis Leinbach (ca. 1813-1895) m. 1) Anna Rahel Byhan (1812-?) 2) Mary Elizabeth Sailor (1823-1900)
Timothy Leinbach (ca. 1816-?) m. Eliza A. Wall
Simon Peter Leinbach (d. 1862). Probably didn't marry; his will names his brothers and sister, but doesn't mention a wife or children.

Were they also the parents of John Leinbach b. ca. 1805, whose wife was Lydia?


Children of Joseph Leinbach and Susanna Long
Catherine Leinbach (1803-1843) m. Joseph Butner (1804-1872)
Josiah Leinbach (1812-1885) m. Lydia Conrad (1811-1887)
Rebecca Leinbach (ca. 1817-?) probably did not marry
Joshua Leinbach - probably the one whose dates are 1819-1886, m. Elizabeth Cooper

Note: previously we had identified Rebecca as Johanna Rebecca, b. 1805, m. Petrus Transou. She appears to be the daughter of the other Joseph Leinbach, and his wife Elizabeth Holder. This Joseph's will (1860) names his daughter as Rebecca Leinbach.

James Edward Leinbach (ca. 1851-1925) m. Sarah Elizabeth Kelly (1843-1899), d/o Willis and Elizabeth Kelly

*Previously we listed this child as Henrietta based on the 1850 census. She appears as Harriet in 1870 and is named as Harriet in her mother's will.

**The marriage record gives John's wife as Jane LUMLY, but her death record and gravestone identify her as RUMLEY.


Children of Lewis Leinbach and Anna Rahel Byhan
Lewis W. Leinbach (1840-1905) m. Louisa R. Petree (1850-1918)
Louisa D. Leinbach (1841-1879) m. John H. Waldraven (1808-1881)

*Martha J. Leinbach was admitted to the Broughton Hospital in Morganton, NC in 1886. Martha remained at Broughton until her death in 1914. She is buried in the cemetery which is located on the hospital's grounds. Her birthdate is given as 1863, but she appears in the 1860 census, age 4.

The 1860 census shows Caladonia age 2 and Louisa D. age 1/2. Previously we omitted Caladonia, and listed Louisa D. and Flora Louise as separate children. We now believe that Flora Louise is the baby in 1860, having been born in April of that year, and that Caladonia probably died in childhood since she does not appear in the 1870 census.

We also omitted Aurelia, who was born after the 1870 census.
