Johan Peter Lenhart arrived in Philadelphia in 1748, on the ship "Two Brothers." By 1749, he owned land in Philadelphia Co. (became Berks Co. in 1752). Between 1758-1767 he removed to Dover, Twp., York Co., where he and Maria Margaretha are buried. The town of Lenhartsville, Greenwich Twp., Berks Co., Pennsylvania, is on land originally owned by Johan Peter Lenhart; his grandson Heinrich (son of Jacob) is considered the founder of Lenhartsville. See Rinkenbach for a more extensive introduction. On this website, Johan Peter Lenhart (JPL) refers to the patriarch of the family; however, many name and spelling variations appear in various records.
