Family of John and Margaretha Lenhart
John Paul Lenhart was born 30 Jun 1833 in Baden, Germany. His parents are unknown. According to two census records, he immigrated to the U.S. in 1836 at the age of 3. He died 4 Feb 1926 in Wamego, Pottawatomie County, Kansas.
Sometime prior to 1863 John married Margaretha 'Mary' Shemberger. Her parents are also unknown, but she gives their birthplace as Germany. She was born about 1836 in Ohio. About 1860 she had her photograph taken in St. Joseph, Missouri, so her family may have been living there at that time. She died 29 Feb 1896 in Pottawatomie County, Kansas.
John and Margaretha had seven children. All were said to have been born in Columbus, Ohio. In 1880 the family was living in Madison County, Ohio and sometime prior to 1900 they moved to Pottawatomie County, Kansas.
