Reported to have been born in France in 1684, and to have married Anna
Maria Briegal, daughter of James Briegal (Von Bruegal) of Holland, came
with his family to Pennsylvania from Scoharie probable about the same time
as Johann Zeller. Unlike Johann, he took up land, not in Heidelberg
Township, but in what became Tulpehocken Township in the present Berks Co,
but was then in Landcaster Co. On 2 Dec 1738, he purchased from Casper
Wistar, the Philadelphia brass-button maker, 115 acres on a branch of the
Swatara Creek in Tulpehocken. Later he took up another 115 acres, adjoining
the first tract, which were patented to his 10 Oct 1750. 
Four years later on 3 Aug 1754, he had his will drawn. He gave the
plantation "whereon I now live" and all his moveable estate to his son
Johann George Zeller, he to pay 250 lbs for it to the other heirs. Out of
this sum his sons Johann Heinrich and Johann David were each to have 40
lbs, but Johann George was to care for them, "they being simple", The
balance of 170 lbs was to be divided between the rest of his childre:
Hartman Zeller, John Zeller, Anna Maria Saltzgeber, Barbaralis Lerew, Anna
Maria, and nominated his son John and son-in-law Leonard Anspach executors.
The will accepted for probate 20 Jan 1756.
Anna Maria Zeller, widow of Johann Heinrich, is reported to have survived
him until 1765, but is was not until 1772 that any disposition of his
property was made. On 28 Dec of that year John Zeller of Berks Co, Anna
Maria Saltzgeber, widow of Lancaster Co, John Pontius of Berks Co in right
of wife Anna Catharine, Leonard Schwartz of Berks Co, in right of his wife
Anna Elizabeth, Barbara Leru of, and Hartman Zeller of Frederick Co,
Maryland, for the consideration of 250 lbs paid by John George Zeller,
released and quitclaimed thier rights in the 245 acres of which Johann
Heinrich Zeller had died siezed. Thus from his will ane quit-claim deed, a
list of the children of Johann Heinrich Zeller can be firmly established.
