      3. Johanne HEINRICH "HENRY" HOLTZCLAW(25) (6) was born on 14 Nov 1711 in Oberfischbach, Germany. (10) He was christened on 22 Nov 1711. (26) Godfather was Johannes Jung (John Young, immigrant to Virginia in 1734) He died in 1778 in Prince William County, Virginia. (10) Henry Holtzclaw is on the Rent Roll of Fauquier Coun in 1770; Prince William County in 1773 and 1770.

      Henry Holtzclaw left a will in Prince William Co VA dated 26 Sep 1777 and probated at the August Court in 1778. Does not mention his wife, presumably deceased. Mentions children Jacob, Duanna Cornwell, James, Nancy Leach, and the three youngest, Timothy, Nathan and Dinah. The minutes of the Broad Run Baptist Church indicate that his wife was Nancy/Anne and that there was another daughter Winifred.

      He was married to ANNE\NANCY HARDIN (daughter of MARK\MARTIN HARDIN and MARY ?HOGUE) in Prince William County, Virginia. (10) ANNE\NANCY HARDIN (27) was born about 1728. She died before Sep 1777.(28) Nancy Hardin's last name was not given in the first Holtzclaw book by B. C. Holtzclaw, nor the daughter Winifred. They are both added in"Nassau-Siegen Immigrants". There are some researchers who believe this link is incorrect.
      Nancy Holtzclaw was baptized at the Broad Run Bapatist Church 7 May 1763 and listed with other members 18 Aug 1769. "Deceased" was written in following these entries. Henry's family was the only Holtzclaw family in the area. The son Jacob named one of his sons "John Harden Holtzclaw" - Jacob remained in Fauquier Co and the Hardins had gone to Kentucky so there would be no association unless Hardin was a family name. The Hardin names appears several other times among the descendants of Nancy and Henry Holtzclaw. Some of the Holtzclaw families join the Hardins in PA and KY. This leaves little doubt as to the close association of the two families. Johanne HEINRICH "HENRY" HOLTZCLAW and ANNE\NANCY HARDIN had the following children:

      +19 i. Jacob HOLTZCLAW.
      +20 ii. Duanna HOLTZCLAW.
      +21 iii. James HOLTZCLAW.
      +22 iv. Nancy HOLTZCLAW.
      +23 v. WINIFRED Anne HOLTZCLAW.
      +24 vi. Timothy HOLTZCLAW.
      +25 vii. Nathan HOLTZCLAW.
      +26 viii. Dinah HOLTZCLAW.
