Notes for Rev. Hans  Herr:
Bishop  Hans Herr:
is described as "of medium height, with long grey hair curled under at the ends and parted in the middle,....Heavy brows, dark hazel eyes, aquiline nose, mouth rather small with heavy lips,complexion florid,with full beard covering the face, the whole lighted by a countenance in which sweetness and austerity were gracefully blended.  Clad in the coarsest homespun, his feet shod with wood, he at last arrived in the far-off land in which some strange prophecy told him he and his People would be prosperous and happy, however poor when arriving.     ( C.H.  Martin, paper read before the Lancaster county historical society, 1925

WAPPIN DES GELCHILECHTS Herr: Coat of Arms - The following translation from the German is of much interest: " The race of Herr descended from a very ancient family - -is free - that is to say of noble origin.  Likewise from time immemorial its Knights were brave and worthy." "Possessing in Schwaben vast and rich estates, the same of which was called And written - HERN VON BILRIED." "The father of this race was called Schwabish Knight Hugo, the Herr or Lord of Bilried.  In the year 1009 flourished and was known to all, the family from whom that  of Herr is descended.  But in the fifteenth century several of the race resigned their nobility and settled as citizens.  They however retained their noble name and their Coat of Arms and in the year 1593, John Herr of Bilried obtained of the Emperor Ferdinand in SWABISH HALL, a written testimonial proving for his flourishing family their Coat of Arms, their free and noble descent and the possession of their race to the latest generation and the Coat of Arms yet rightly belong to the present living family of Herr."
