    Notes 
    • John Henry Antes was a religious leader among German-Americans in Pennsylvania. He emigrated to America with his parents, Philip Frederick and Anna Catherine Antes, from Freinsheim in the Rhenish Palatinate when Henry was about nineteen years old. Talbot Hamlin states that Philip Frederick's father was originally Baron Von Blume, an abbot of a monastery who, somehow, converted to Protestantism, married an abbess, similarly converted, and together they fled from Germany to the tolerance of Pennsylvania, where they started a new life, taking the name of Anthos (a translation of the word "Blume" into the Greek word for flower), later simplified to Antes. He was named Johann Heinrich but apparently called Henry. He built the first grist mill at Bethlehem, PA in 1743. A rough translation of his birth announcement: "July 17 (1701) Philipp Friedrich Antes and his wife Anna Caterina announce the birth of Johann Heinrich, a boy, at 6 p.m. in the evening."
