Johannes Schmeck 1776 – 1829

Unverified - Research in Progress.  I'm confused by the different John Schmecks, and still sorting out which one is "ours"

Sorting out the John's
1. Buried in Paradise Cemetery (see records & photos below)

 Birth: Mar. 16, 1782, Berks County, PA

"Son of Heinrich Schmeck and Anna Smidt. Husband of Maria Magdalena Leinbach m. 27 OCT 1801 at the Swartzwald Reformed Church in Berks Co, PA. " - according to find a grave entry - I don't think this is accurate though?

Research:

The below seems to be a mix of "our" Johannes" with another Johannes? (See #1 & #2  under Sorting out the John's at the top of this post.)  Ours married Maria Magdalena Leinbach, ours has a son born in 1803 named Daniel, but ours has different birth and death dates, and was buried in Northumberland County, not Berks.  Also note in the children below, if Benjamin & Johannes are accurate, they must have been twins?  But I only see one record in 1804 in the Zion Spies Church Records:

on page 29
Henry Schmeck has "a son" 5/15/1804  Sp. Jacob Schmeck & Wife Susanna
no record of Johannes having any children, in those records, in 1804?
The will of John Schmeck (#2 at top of post) shows some of the children included below.  I'm pretty sure there are two Johannes Schmecks, and that the book below has the two of them combined, but I cannot prove there are two, yet.  Both appear to have been born around the same time, both married a Maria (or Mary?)
