Pennsylvania, Montgomery County, John Henry Gerhart was

His mother, Elizabeth Smith b:1848 d:1924.
His father, Benjamin born in Pennsburg, PA. According to John Henry's records.
They lived in Pennsburg and then in Pottstown, Pa for a time.
By the time John Henry was 2 years old, Benjamin, his father, was not in the picture.
By this time Elizabeth has married a Holloway and Elizabeth and her new husband raised lil John.
But, who was Benjamin Gerhart born in Pennsburg?
When was he born?
Where did he go?
Did they ever really marry?
Did he re-marry?
Did he have other family in another county?
We have checked churches and libraries and census and walked cemeteries til my feet ache.
There were quite a few Benjamin Gerhart's
The name is spelled Gerhart and Gerhard in the same cemetery on the same family plot in Montgomery County (John Henry's plot) and also spelled Benjamin Gerhard on John Henry Gerhart's marriage certificate.
If anyone has any clues, please send them to
