Jorg Heinrich Spengler (M)
b. 8 June 1704, d. 6 July 1776
Pop-up Pedigree

     He settled in York Co., Pennsylvania in 1732. Jorg Heinrich (or Henry) Spengler came to America he provided the following letter of recommendation, certificate and passport. Henry Spengler's Certificate and Credentials, 1725 (Translation) "Linen-weaver Apprentice-attest for George Heinrich Spengler of Weyler Under Steinsberg. We, Wolffgang Weisenbronn & Johannes Pausser, appointed masters of an honorable Guild of linen weavers in Hillspach county of Mossbach in the Palatinate, hereby publicly make known to everybody whenever this letter may be read or heard, that the bearer of same, the honorable and modest George Henry Spengler, a native of Weyler under Steinsberg, made known to us that he had learned regularly and in agreement with the rules of the guild the trade of linen-weaving with our fellow master and craftsman at the aforesaid Weyler, Caspar Spengler, also that he had served out his time and therefore asked for an accredited certificate which he could make use of on future occasions. Since we cannot refuse him this just petition, we therefore hereby certify that the said George Henry Spengler has learned his trade of linen-weaving with our beloved fellow-master and craftsman, Caspar Spengler at Weyler under Stainsberg, during a period of three years in accordance with the rule of the guild, beginning on candlemas (2nd of February) 1722 and should have ended at the same time 1725. On account of his diligence and good behavior, however, the time has been shortened by a half year, so that he was an apprentice fully two and one half years -- we guild masters and also the undersigned associate-masters being present at both the binding and the releasing act; he also conducted himself during said time towards everybody in a manner becoming to an honor-loving apprentice, being diligent, upright, faithful, pious, honest, wherefore we, and especially I, his trade master (who taught him his trade) were highly pleased with him and can say only good and pleasant things about him. It is also with our knowledge and consent that he without any bad reputation now goes away journeying, for which reason we gladly give him this testimony and certificate. We accordingly respectfully ask everybody, of whatsoever station, honor or dignity they may be, but especially our fellow-craftsmen of the guild of linen weavers, to whom the oft-mentioned George Henry Spengler may come, to do him every favor and aid him in every way possible on account of his good behavior and because of his having learned his trade thoroughly, and thus enable him to enjoy the full benefit of this our intercession. To return similar favors on such and all other occasions we declare ourselves heartily willing. In testimony whereof we, masters of the guild and associate masters, have hereunto affixed our own signatures and the common seal of the guild. Done at Sinsheim the 3rd day of July in the year of our Lord 1725. We the undersigned guild masters: Hans Wolff Wissenbrunn Hans Pausser [Seal of the Guild] Associate-masters Hans Werrichstock Hans George Bainerd Caspar Spengler, as Trade Master." The signature of Caspar Spengler to the above is identical wth Caspar Spengler's signature to his last will filed in the Register's office of York Co., Pennsylvania in 1760. Henry Spengler's Passport (Translation) "The Court of His Excellency the Elector of the Palatinate, at Dilsperg. I, Franciscus Josephus Wieden, hereby make known to everybody, that Henry Spengler, for the past two years a resident of Meckersheim, appeared at this office and gave due notice of his intention to leave the Palatinate, and in hope of better fortune to emigrate to the new country or the so-called island of Pennsylvania, and that he, therefore, needed an official certificate of his legitimate birth and upright living for an unmolested journey. Since now the said Henry Spengler not only has been granted emigrandi venia, (permission to emigrate), but also before obtaining this official attest and passport, duly paid all his taxes; therefore it became my official duty to bear record and certify in this open letter that the said Henry Spengler, together with his lawful wife Susanna were born of and raised by honorable parents; also during the time of their residence in the borough of Meckershelm they carefully met all the governmental requirements made upon them and conducted themselves toward everybody peaceably, honorably and faithfully in such a manner that never once has a single complaint been brought against them at this office, so that for this reason he together with his family would gladly have been suffered t remain in the Palatinate, had he not himself of his own accord, spe melioris fortune (in hope of better fortune) asked permission to emigrate. Therefore the said Henry Spengler, is respectfully recommended to the kind consideration and aid of everybody who may get to read this, that he, as coming from a - thank God - healthy, uninfested place, may in his journey everywhere have free and safe passage, all of which we on our part declare ourselves in duty bound and willing to reciprocate on every occasion. Signatum Dilsperg the 28th of April, 1732 Seal: Francis Joseph Wieden F.J. Wieden" He was naturalized April 11, 1763, having taken the Sacrement as required by law. He probably first settled in 1732, in Heidelberg Twp., now Adams Co., near the Blue Mountains, where his daughter Susanna was born in 1735. He soon after moved to a tract of land, in the southern suburbs of York. A license dated October 30, 1736, was granted to an English speculator, Michael Wallack for 250 acres of land in the Manor of Springettsbury,then in Lancaster Co., now in York Co.. On August 6, 1746 Wallack conveyed 165 acres of the above tract to Henry Spengler. A warrant for the same was issued from the land office to Henry Spengler, April 14, 1767, in which it was designated as "Spengler's Rest" and patented May 2, 1768. Henry Spengler later devised this tract of land to his son John George Spengler. Will of Henry Spengler "In the Name of God, - Amen.
