Jacob Schwenk, b. Jan 1695

Hi to all researchers of the Hans Michael/Peter Schwenk line:

Sources such as Enos Schwenk's book on the Schwenk family tell the story of three brothers, Hans Michael, Peter and Jacob Schwenk, arriving in PA in the 1730s. Ralph B. Strassburger, in an addendum to that book, reported that Jacob was probably not a brother, but the story has persisted.

I've recently received confirmation that Jacob was NOT the 'third brother.' He was born in Switzerland in Jan 1695, and his parents were Rudolf and Elisabeth (Lang) Schwenk. He died in Germantown, PA in Jan 1759.
