Families from France to PA 1600s/1700s

In Reply to: Wolfskirchen to PA in 1752, also Strohs by Rick S. Thomas of 226

The Stroh family appears to have had association with our Junckers as early as a marriage in 1643 and as late as 1715 (another marriage). Someone from the Stroh genforum page wrote me and alerted me to this page:

What I like about the record is it pinpoints a Juncker family in Wolfskirchen in 1643. The fighting went back and forth across the area from 1618 to 1648 (Thirty Year's War). Dr. Gerhard Hein's mention of a return in 1647 might also be significant and indicate the family hid again. I still believe the family lived off and on, returning to one or two primary residences.

There were three families of Strohs at Emanuel Lutheran (Old Warwick) Church, Brickerville, one at least from 1753. Same church as our Younkers. Notice marriages to Quierin, a Reeb, Mueller, and a Klein--a Hans Nickel Quierin and a Peter Reeb came over with our Johann Jacob Juncker on the "Halifax." Same is true for several Muellers and a Jacob Klein. Hints to our Junckers/Younkers could be indirectly linked to some of these family lines before 1750.

This new discovery may be useful in finding other information to re-construct our family before 1700. There must be more records in Nassau-Werden that we have not tapped into.
