Johann Gottfried Bernhard Bach

Johann Gottfried Bernhard Bach (1715— 1739), fourth son of Johann Sebastian Bach, was, like his elder brothers, born at Weimar and educated at Leipzig, Germany. From 1735 to 1738 he held successively the organist posts at Mühlhausen[?] and Sangerhausen[?]. In 1738 he threw up his appointment and went to study law at Jena; in 1739 he died suddenly, aged 24.
