    History His new style birth date was 15 May 1862. From "The Genealogical and Biographical Record of The Descendants of David S. Holdeman 1825-1905" by Mr. and Mrs. Obed Johnson and Mr. and Mrs. Orville E. Wiggers, 1951, Mennonite Press, North Newton, Kansas.
    Henry Koehn came to America in 1874. He spent the first winter at Florence, Kansas, but later settled at Halstead, Kansas. In 1878 he was converted and united with the Church of God in Christ Mennonite. On March 9,1882, when in his 20th year, he was the 22nd minister John Holdeman ordained. They lived in different parts of Kansas, including Cimarron, Moundridge and Montezuma, Kansas. Also in Texas and California. He preached the gospel in all places where he lived. He was also a farmer and carpenter.
    As a minister of the gospel he was earnest, zealous, and endowed with a very fluent gift of pulpit oratory. Only the Master will be able to measure the good accomplished through his ministry; although he, as we all, made many mistakes, which he so often spoke of and had to learn out of experience the words of the Master "Without me ye can do nothing", to which he gladly humbled himself and trusted the heavenly wisdom - The Messenger of Truth.
    Prophecy spoken through prayer was that God may richly bless him with teaching repentance through faith in God, to hold before the eyes of the people the unmerited favor of righteousness and peace toward mankind; further, that he may have wisdom from heaven to search the reasons for discord, and help establish peace in the church.
