from ZFH 1942, p. 23

HENRY ZARTMAN, son of Jacob, Senior, son of Alexander I, is at the head of a numerous family. Jacob in his will calls Henry "my first born." We do not know the date of his nativity. He was born possibly in 1745 inLancaster Co., Pa., where he dwelt until the year 1768, when his family moved to Northumberland County, where he became a prominent citizen. Served some years as Justice.
Served on the Committee of Safety from Augusta township in 1774; later served as representative from Mahanoy Township untill 1777. Was Constable in 1790 and 1791.
He m. Elisabeth Hauser (b. in 1754), daughter of Jacob Hauser, Lancaster Co., Pa., who served in the Lancaster Militia in 1778. Jacob Hauser was b. in 1711 and d. in August 1793.

The children of Henry and Elisabeth Zartman were as follows:
1. Christena, seems to have been the first born daughter and that may have been in 1772. She m. George Neihart and had a daughter Barbara, who burned to death one night in the home of her Uncle John Jacob Zartman.
2. John Martin, b. 12/31/1774.
3. John Henry, b. 9/5/1776.
4. John Peter, b. 11/30/1778.
5. John Jacob, b. 12/10/1780.
6. Elisabeth, b. 1783.
7. Sophia, b. 3/12/1785.
8. Alexander, b. 10/29/1786.
9. Samuel, b: 12/13/1788.
10. Michael, b. , d. -in 1799; a blacksmith.

Elisabeth, mother of this large family, d. in 1793 and was buried with her husband in the cemetery at Zartman's Evangelical Church. It is remarkable that there are four Johns in this family. We doubt if the parents named and had them baptized that way. We found the birth and baptismal certificate of John Jacob and he was christened with that name. We think the other sons assumed, or added, the name John. At that same time there was another Peter, Martin, and HenryZartman in that community. There may have been confusion with each other's mail, causing them to prefix the name John.

p.24
In court records these sons of Henry usually go by the names Martin, Peter, and Jacob; but occasionally Johnis affixed; this has been quite troublesome to the historian.
Henry Zartman was a prosperous farmer; at the time of his death he had an estate of three hundred twelve (312) acres. He was a man of affairs, popular with his fellowmen, ministering to the public good, and a prominent churchman; he and his good wife Elisabeth were frequently invited to act as godparents in baptismal services. Elizabeth, daughter of Henry Zartman, was still single when her father made his will in 1803. Sophia is not mentioned in the will; she may have been deceased. Michael, though dead prior to 1803, is named in the will and the father devises his share of the estate to Michael's sons, John Henry and Michael, Jr. Following is the last will and testament of Henry Zartman as translated. The will is ofrecord in the Court House in Sunbury, Pa.
"In the name of God, Amen. I, HenryZartman, of the township of Mahanoy, in the county of Northumberland, being weak in body, but of sound and perfect mind and memory, blessed be Almighty God for the same, do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following (that is to say): First of all I resign my soul and body into the hand of God, who gave it me, and I order and direct that my body be buried ina decent like manner, and that my funeral expenses and just debts be paid by hereinafter named executors. First, I give and devise to my son, Martin Zartman,his heirs and assigns, all my plantation whereon I now dwell, containing two hundred and six acres, and one hundred and six acres of hill land adjoining Philip Lefter, for which he is to pay eight hundred pounds in real specie of gold or silver money of Pennsylvania, exclusive of his own share, in sixteen instalments. In one year after my death fifty pounds to my daughter Christena, intermarried with George Neihart, and fifty pounds in two years after my death to my son Henry, and so on, fifty pounds yearly to each o
