I am looking for any information on Henry A. Kern, born abt. 1871. According to some census data, his father may have been a German immigrant (rather than a member of the earlier Kerns of Slatington). Henry Kern married Lillian M. Snyder on August 31, 1918 in Allentown, PA. The couple had the following children:
Cora M. Kern (abt. 1893)
Elizabeth M. Kern (December 1893)
William J. Kern (June 1897)
Charles Henry Kern (September 13, 1898)
Frank A. Kern (abt. 1903)
George Washington Kern (February 22, 1904) - twin
Samuel I. Kern (February 22, 1904) - twin
Newton E. Kern (March 31, 1909)
According to census data, Henry Kern was living in Washington Township, Lehigh County in 1900 and 1910, and moved to Allentown, Lehigh County in 1920 and 1930. His children lived in the Hokendauqua and Slatington areas, as well as Allentown.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Despite the large quantity of Kern data in Lehigh and Northampton Counties, I have been stuck on Henry for quite some time. Thanks so much.
