Henry and Maria/Mary Schick of PA

am not related to any Schicks (at least I don't think I am) but I have just purchased an 1801 fraktur (PA German birth record) that seems to be about a Schick family from Montgomery County, PA. The old German lettering is very hard to read, but what little I THINK I have been able to translate appears to say:

"Salme Schick is from Christ and her parents (gezeiget/shown?) and was born the 20th April 1801 in Pennsylvania in Montgomery County in New Hanover Township. Her father (is) Henry Schick and her mother (is) Maria "Schickin?"/"Schick?" and was baptized by Mr. ("Herr") Pastor Henry Geisenheimer. The sponsors were Ludwig Schick and his wife Maria."

I did an Internet search and according to Bean's 1884 history of Montgomery County, PA, a Rev. Henry Geisenheimer came to St. John's Lutheran Church in about 1797.

I am posting this here (and on the Rootsweb message board) in the event that the information is of some use to Schick family researchers.
