From Essenheim came Lorentz Schmahl, the founder of the Small family of York, Pennsylvania.
In a roster of the inhabitants of Essenheim in 1624 the name of Schmahl does not appear, but in 1646 Lorentz and Elizabeth Schmahl, grandparents of the emigrant, presented a Child for baptism, which baptism, duly entered in the books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, gives the earliest record of the family which has yet been found. No effort has been made to trace the name beyond Essenheim.
From the records of the Church at Essenheim has been gathered considerable information of interest to the Small family. The search has been carefully made, and the abstracts are guaranteed under the signature of the present pastor and under the seal of the Lutheran Church.
Lorentz Schmahl appears to have settled in Essenheim as a young man, Shortly after his marriage. For many years, from this time on, the name appears more or less frequently upon the records. It has now, however, almost entirely disappeared from the neighborhood.
The Essenheim records Show that Lorentz Schmahl died aged eighty-four years, and was buried on January 30, 1698. There is no record of the death of his wife.
