Hi Carl again, Quoting from the book just mentioned on page 5, Marx Breinig arrived on October 10, 1751, on the ship Janet manned by Captain William Cunningham (with H. Adam Diem and Jacob Weimer, Minister), Johann Phillips Breunig arrived October 4, 1752 on the ship Neptune with Captain John Mason; Johannes Breinig arrived September 17, 1753 on the ship Patience with Captain High Steele. These immigrants came from the Palatinate-more specifically Baden and Wurttembert. They may have been brothers as indicated by their closeness in location on the frontiers of Pa. Marx sponsoredthe baptism of Johann Phillip's son, peter, at the Moslem Luthern Church in Kutztown on June 15, 1766. To continue on page 6: By 1759 Marx Breinig had established himself as a member of the community and had won Maria Catherine as his bride. In that year he paid the goodly sum of one English pound in taxes and he and his wife sponsored the baptism of a friend's child at the Host Luthern Church. Page 12, Marx Breinig was cited for service to the Revolution as was Killian Briney. Marx Breinig did not survive the Revolution nor witness the burning of Hanna's Town. He was buried in the Brush Creek Cemetery in 1778 and is deemed a patroit for his role in the American Revolution. His daughter's husband, Abraham Wegle, also served in the War as did John Briney who appears to have been the first to use the anglicised form of Breinig. Page 13 The Reverend William Arter Zundel, a descendant of John Michael Zundel, published the History of Old Zion Evangelical Church, Greesburg, Pa in 1922. It was at the Old Zion Church that Marx and Maria Catherine sponsored a baptism as late as June 15, 1777. 1. Peter, 2. John, 3. Maria Christina, three of the children of Marx andMaria Catherine had their children baptised by Meyer. Have additional information if you need it. Hope this helps some and may clear up the misconception that Marx Breinig was the father of Anna Christine. Thanks!Mary Ann Bowry
