Hi, Your Henry and mine are definately not the same person, but are likely related. My Henry's parents (John Michael Leitner) and grandparents lived in Lancaster PA and there were numerous relatives. John Michael moved to Baltimore prior to Henry's birth and never moved back to PA to my knowledge or per any info I have seen. The Baptismal records of Henry and some of his siblings are available at the Zion German Lutheran Church in Baltimore, as are Henry's marriage and children's Christenings. His father did have siblings who may have stayed in PA. The name Heinrich was very common in German families and their family has many overlapping names anyway. I'm sure they are connected in some way, but cannot be of an real help tere.
