Surnames: LEONARD/LENHARDT, GOULD, DOTY
The LEONARD's (LENHARDT in German) are believed to come from the Alsace-Lorraine region of France/Germany. My fourth great grandfather is believed to be Jonas LEONARD born abt. 1774. He married Julia GOULD, born abt. 1773, in Fonda, NY, in the Dutch Reformed Church in 1803. A son William was born 1805, Amsterdam, New York and later moved to Big Pond, PA where he and wife Phoebe CLINTON lived and died. He is buried Big Pond cemetery and she in the Doty Hill cemetery as she married Joseph DOTY after Williams death in 1854. I am able to find most of the descendents of this family but have been unable to locate ancestors. Any information would be helpful and appreciated.

I have Canadian ancestors are said to have been from that region near a village called Landstuhl and or Harsburg but I cannot verify. Family records (now misplaced) indicated they settled into Ontario region and farmed near Waterloo and died in Kitchener area.

Your folks may be part of the line who came earlier. Did your lines have any males born appx mid-1820's who emmigrated from this region on Germany/French border to Canada either directly or via the USA first abt 1845-1850?

My direct was named John (Johan?) Lenhart/Lenhard on Canadian census. He was married to a Helena Pinsonneault(?)

Where were your folks from?

Another source (a Lenhard from Detroit, MI) gave my GF a letter that linked all of his and my folks to JPL....but I have been stuck for 30+ yrs trying to sort out what little I can find on these canadian Lenhards.

Please...anyone... I will share what I have including a couple very old pictures.

Q: Do any of these name match your research?
A: Yes!!! My direct is a John or Johan born abt 1826 in Germany ( maybe Harsburg) He may have emmigrated in Mid-1840's with a brother...your ancester Peter?

John may have come into an area where an Uncle Peter was already there. (Or your Peter?)

John was said to RC and married a woman named Helena Pisoneault; she reportedly died 1919 in Kitchener, Ontario.
They had 5 children:
(1) Andrew born 1860, Carrick Tnshp, Bruce, Ontario. He is my GGF. He died in Pt. Huron , MI. I have 1-2 pictures of him.
(2) Caroline Brn abt 1862, Carrick Tnshp, Bruce, Ontario.
(3) Joseph 1864 same place
(4) Elizabeth 1866 same place
(5) Katherine 1868 same place
---------------------------------------------------------
Number 1 above (Andrew) reportedly drown on a 4th of July in Pt. Huron, MI.
Andrew's wife reportedly was a Pauline Bauman, Brn abt 1864 in Alsace-Lorraine region. She may have died in Pt. Huron also. Here are their children:
(1) Ruth, B 1888 Pt. Huron, MI.
(2) Child abt 1890 Pt. Huron, MI.
(3) Joseph Andrew 28 Dec1892 Pt. Huron, MI. and died 17Mar1946 in Detroit, Warren, MI. Joseph was my Grandfather.
(4) John 1892 Pt. Huron, MI

Note here: my 83 yr old father recalls someone named or nicknamed "Sandy" from Pt. Huron, MI who came to see them in 1829. Ring any bells?
-----------------------------------------------------------------
I have some other information & names but please...let's see if any of these names sound familiar....
------------------------------------------------------
I would really like to work with you...everyone else seems to be of PA Lenhard lines.

Phone number is 1-706-568-3257.

I have not been able to confirm any info on Peter's siblings but,think it is possible that Peter had a brother Adam who was in the same area of Canada. 1871 Waterloo Co Canada I found Adam Lenhard, Lambert Lenhard & Peter Lenhard so the could of had more brothers come to Canada. Adam was a
blacksmith, he was married to Franciska Kaiser they had the

I believe we have a connection. My line goes back to the Kitchener - Waterloo area of Ontario. I have a Rose Linert [spelling questionable] m. Joseph Diebolt. They were supposedly from Alsace. They would have emigrated to North America sometime before 1840. Please contact me directly and I will supply information on one line of her descendents. I look forward to hearing from you.

Surnames: Lenhardt/Leonhardt
My Lenhardt/Leonhardt relatives originated in Sprendlingen, Germany - in the Alsace-Lorraine region. In 1764 my relative Andreas Leonhardt (b. 1727) imigrated to the Saratov province of Russia on the Volga River. In 1900 many of his descendents came to the United States. I have been told the Lutheran Church from 1727 is still in operation and their records are still in tact.
