Tree: Strausstown Roots
Notes: The Tulpehocken Reformed Church was for many years known as Leinbach's Church, and to this day the older people of western Berks, who knew Revs. Thomas H. and Charles H. Leinbach, successive pastors of the congregation, speak of it only by this name. Montgomery's History of Berks County says of this church:
"It is not within the bounds of Berks county, but it is so near the western line that many of its citizens belong to its membership. The congregation was organized some time before 1745, when the first church building was put up of logs, on the south corner of the old cemetery and near the present parsonage. This house was in use until 1772, when a new church was' built in the upper part of the old cemetery and on the south side of the present highway. In 1853 the present house of worship was built on the north side of the turnpike, and adjoining the new cemetery, which was opened in 1864. It is about two miles from Stouchsburg and on an elevated site. The building is of stone, spacious and attractive, and accommodates a very large membership. In 1885 they numbered nearly 500.
"The church property includes two well-kept cemeteries, an old but substantial parsonage, and about 35 acres of land. The Rev. Michael Schlatter was one of the pioneer preachers in this place in 1746 and the year following; and his labors as a missionary were shared by Rev. Rieger, Boehm and Weiss. They preached at irregular intervals, varying from four to ten weeks. The rapid settlement of the country and the increased interest in the work made a regular pastorate possible, and such a ministerial service began in the summer of 1747. Since that time the pastors of the church have been the .following: Revs. D. Bartholemae, H. W. Story. Johannes Waldschmidt, Wm. Otterbein, John J. Zutall. J. Wm. Hendel, Sr., Andrew Loretz, D. Wagner, Wm. Hendel. D. D., Thomas H. Leinbach, Charles H. Leinbach, H. J. Welker."
