Henry HAAS, Germany > Lehigh County

I am trying to clear up some conflicting information I found about Henry HAAS, one of three brothers who came from Germany to Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.

The first comes from a book on the History of Lehigh County. It lists his birth date as 10 October 1750 and his date of death as 14 May 1813. For his wife Catharine Breinig, her birth is listed as 10 June 1759 and her date of death is listed as 6 December 1837.

The second comes from a listing of people buried in Jordan Reformed Church Cemetery. It lists a Heinrich Haaz being born 10 October 1730 and his death occuring on 6 April 1809. Catharine's date of death is listed as 14 February 1822. It also lists her age as being 62 yrs. 7 mos. 4 dys. That would put her birth date at about 10 July 1759, if I did the math correct.

Can anyone confirm either sets of dates?

My line goes from Henry to his son Isaac to his son Isaac.
