In a possibly extraordinary find, there were families of Junckers, Veits, and Hildebrands at the Emanuel Lutheran (Old Warwick) Church near Brickerville, Lancaster Co., PA at the same time. This may follow a similar pattern of at least one Hildebrand and one Veit who married a Juncker back in Nackenheim, Germany. A (Johann) Jacob and a (Maria) Barbara Hildebrand recorded births at Emanuel in 1766 and 1768. A Johann Michael and Magdalena Veit recorded births at Emanuel from 1759-1767. Johann Jacob and (wife unknown) Juncker recorded births there from 1752 to 1759; his family continued attending church there to at least 1776. We may eventually learn that all these surnames represent associated families who knew each other from the old country. Proving this may be an exciting challenge. If anyone can expound on the Veits or the Hildebrands at Lancaster Co., PA, I would love to hear from you.
