Johann Jacob Muhlschlagel1,2,3,4

M, ID# 3553, (22 Feb 1767 - Mar 1848)
Father:Johann Andreas "Andrew" Muehlschlagel (15 Apr 1730 - c 1815)
Mother:Anna Maria Emmert (Jul 1734 - c 1818)
     Johann Jacob Muhlschlagel was born on 22 Feb 1767 at Berks Co, Pennsylvania. He was the son of Johann Andreas "Andrew" Muehlschlagel and Anna Maria Emmert. Johann Jacob Muhlschlagel was christened at Peter's Church, Richmond Township, Berks Co, Pennsylvania. He married Elizabeth Cooper c 1798. Johann Jacob Muhlschlagel died in Mar 1848 at 'Sandy Ridge', Hampshire Co, Virginia, at age 81. He was buried at Hampshire Co, Virginia.
      Johann Jacob Mühlschlägel went by the name Jacob, as was the German custom. His father's diary, translated from German, notes: "24 February 1767 my son is born to the world, his godfather and godmother were both single, namely Jacob Emert and Balzerichman's daughter of the name Maria Ablonia, they gave the child the name Johann Jacob." The ceremony was performed by Rev Jacob Michael.

Johann married Elizabeth Cooper circa 1795. Jacob acquired 150 acres from the State of Virginia in 1800 in Timber Ridge, Hampshire Co, VA. The land was originally granted to Lord Fairfax but was confiscated at the end of the Revolution. Jacob, with the aid of his father and brothers, constructed a large log home -- not a primitive cabin. The house was still sturdy in 1929, with its stairs were made of heavy hand-hewn hardwoods, and its large fireplace still solid and straight. The large porch which until after 1902 extended entirely across the front of the house was gone. Jacob and Elizabeth lived in this house until 1810. Jacob's parents deeded him their homestead and land for 470 pounds on 20 Nov 1809 in Hampshire County, VA and they moved in with his parents.

Jacob was enumerated on the 1810 census for Hampshire Co,VA as Jacob Milslagle aged between 26 and 44 years old. Based on ages, it is possible the following were also living in the household: Elizabeth, his wife, aged between 26 and 44; Andrew, Samuel and Elias aged newborn to ten years old; Hannah aged ten to fifteen years old; as well as two females under 10 and one female between 16 and 26. Enumerated next door to him is John Loy, aged 26 thru 44.

Jacob was enumerated on the 1820 census for Hampshire Co, VA as Jacob Milsslagle, a male aged over 45. Based on ages, it is possible the following were also living in the household: his wife Elizabeth aged over 45; Jacob, Eva Ann, Arianne and Abraham aged newborn to ten years old; Rebecca and Elias aged ten to sixteen years old; Edith, Andrew, Samuel and Hannah aged sixteen to twenty-six years old.

Jacob purchased 225 acres adjoining the Millslagle farm from Henry and John Baker for 125 bushels of wheat. According Earliest Settlers of Western Frederick-Eastern Hampshire Counties "Jacob made other purchases as well, and in the period 1850 to 1855 when eight of the heirs of Jacob sold their interests to the remaining two sons and heirs, the acreage involved was 834 acres be the same more or less."

Jacob was enumerated on the 1830 census for Sandy Ridge, Hampshire Co, VA as Jacob Milslagle aged between 60 and 70 years old. Based on ages it is possible that the following were also living in the household: his wife Elizabeth aged between 50 and 60 years old; Abraham and Jacob aged ten to fifteen years old; Rebecca aged fifteen to twenty years old; Andrew, Edith and Elias aged twenty to thirty years old as well as one male aged 10-15 years old and one female aged 15-20 years old.

Jacob was enumerated on the 1840 census for Sandy Ridge as Jacob Milslagle male between 70 and 80 years old. Based on ages, the household likely included his wife Elizabeth aged between 60 and 70 years old; Mary Ann or Julia aged ten to fifteen years old; Jacob, Abraham, Arianne and Eva Ann aged twenty to thirty years old as well as one male aged between 20 and 30 years old and one male aged between 15 and 20 years old.

Jacob died before 1850. During 1850 - 1855 when eight heirs of Jacob sold their interests to the remaining two sons and heirs, the estate totaled 834 acres. In dividing Jacob's estate his daughter Mary Ann was left out resulting in court action to claim her share of the estate: "In the Circuit Court of Hampshire County, September term 1858, Addison McCauley and Mary Ann McCauley, his wife, complts. Abrm Millslagle, Jacob Millslagle and Jonathan Albright, Defts. This cause came to be heard the 17th day of Sept. 1858 upon the papers formerly read and the reports of John Kern, Commissioner, and the Commissioners appointed to lay off part of the tract of land in the bill mentioned to which complainant Mary Ann McCauley is entitled (mentioned in the decree as 190) Under the interlocutory decree made in this Court at April term of 1857 and it appearing to the Court that there is a mistake in the said decree of April term 1857 in assuring the number of heirs of Jacob Millslagle, dec'd as nine when there mentioned in the bill are ten in number and the said reports being made upon the assumption that the number of the heirs is ten which is the correct number as is shown by the bill and proceedings, the said last mention report is approved [?] confirmed by the Court and the cause was argued by counsel on consideration whe[?] the Court doth adjudge, order and decree the complainant Mary Ann McCauley take and hold in severalty (subject to whatever interest her husband Addison McCauley may have therein by virtue of his marriage with her the portion of the [?] of land in the bill mentioned aforesaid and laid off to her by the said Commissioners to be recorded among the records of Hampshire County and the defendant, Abraham Millslagle, having filed a petition praying that the report of the Commissioner, John Kern., Jr. recommitted to him with directions to examine the said petition (to take further evidence concerning rents and profits) and papers filed therewith and if he thinks proper, to correct his report in regard to the rents and profits due from the defendants, Abraham and Jacob Millslagle or to make a new report concerning the same stating any matters deemed pertinent by himself which either party may require . . . John B. White, C. C."

"We, Robert Carmichael, Evan Hiett, Asa Hiett, and Charles Blue, Commissioners appointed by the Circuit Court of Hampshire County to lay off and divide the land of which Jacob Millslagle died seized (so as to give Mary Ann McCauley, wife of Addison McCauley, one of the heirs of Jacob Millslagle, dec'd the share she is entitled to have) this day met and after our examination of the lands and [?]ises have laid off and fixed the following boundaries as the sharie of Said Addison McCAuley in right of his wife Mary Ann McCauley, Viz; Commencing at the mouth [?] the lane northeast of Abraham Millslagle's house which lane leads across the [?]tain to the old Abraham Rhinehart place continuing along said line in the cente[?] of the road until it reaches near the top of the mountain where the fence turns northeast, thence along with the said fence until it reaches the line between [?]er and Millslagle where it corners in the said line thence with the said line r[?] west until it reaches the end of the two fields, thence with the fence of the field southwest to the beginning, supposed to contain thirty or thirty-five acres, more or less, it being as we supposed the one tenth part in value of the whole of the said Jacob Millslagle, Dec'd.

Johann Philipp Emmert1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

M, ID# 3559, (17 Feb 1704 - b 28 May 1762)
Father:Hans Peter Emmert (a 1667 - b 15 May 1725)
Mother:Anna Magdalena Edinger (a 1672 - )
Charts:Susan Paulding Ruff * lineage
     Johann Philipp Emmert was born on 17 Feb 1704 at Baden, Germany. He was christened on 17 Feb 1704 at Saint Martins Reformed Church, Neckarelz, Mosbach, Baden, Germany. He was the son of Hans Peter Emmert and Anna Magdalena Edinger. Johann Philipp Emmert married Anna Margretha Braus, daughter of Hanss Georg Braus, on 15 Jan 1725 at Asbach, Mosbach, Baden, Germany. Johann Philipp Emmert immigrated on 5 Sep 1730 to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He married Maria Catharina Kamp / Kamm, daughter of Johann Caspar Kamp / Kamm and Anna Catharina 'Catherine' Franck, in 1731 at New Goshenhoppen Reformed Church, Upper Hanover, Philadelphia Co, Pennsylvania. Johann Philipp Emmert died b 28 May 1762 at Richmond Township, Berks Co, Pennsylvania. His estate was probated on 28 May 1762 at Berks Co, Pennsylvania.
      Johann Philipp Emmert's 1704 christening was witnessed by Peter Kessler who was a blacksmith and citizen of Necharelz; Peter Kessler also was a sponsor for the christening of Johann Philipp's brother Johann Peter. Johann Philipp followed German naming customs and was known as Philipp and in America used the name Philip.

Johann Philip's first marriage was recorded in his wife's hometown of Asbach, Baden as Johann Philipp Emmert and Anna Margretha Braus, whereas in Erdareltz where Johann Philip lived and the ceremony took place, his name was recorded for the same date as Hanss Philip Emmert. Asbach is located across the Neckar River about 2 miles from Neckareltz. To complicate research, two other couples with these exact names lived nearby; a Philipp Emmert married Anna Margaretha Horsch in 1687 in Heinsheim, Mosbach, and a Johann Philipp Emmert and Anna Margaretha had a son in 1727 in Ittlingen, Heidelberg. Neckarelz is about 40 miles northeast from Eppingen where Johann Philip's second wife was born, although he married his second wife in America.

As noted by descendant Deborah Pritchett, there are usually slight discrepancies between various sources on an individual. Because of that, identification changes over time (sometimes correctly, as proper sources are added to an individual's record; and sometimes incorrectly, as unrelated sources are added to the individual's record). One source of confusion is that there are two Emmert - Braus marriages, fairly close together. Ages are not noted in the source documents, so proper identification is difficult. The bride may or may not be the same individual.

In Neckarelz a common way for people to start their journey to America was by traveling down the rivers using rafts and then selling the wood when they got to the sea according to Nancy Emmert. Hence, Johann Philipp may have floated a raft down the Neckar River to the Rhine River and then down the Rhine to Rotterdam, where he was known to have boarded a ship bound for Philadelphia.

Johann Philipp was among 45 Palantines with their families for a total of 130 people who emigrated in the "Alexander and Anne" captained by William Clymer, Master, from Rotterdam. The ship reportedly last stopped at Deal, however Rupp's 1876 listing of immigrants on this ship, which includes the account in German, stated on this passage the ship last stopped at Cowes. Johann Philipp's newborn son remained and grew up in Germany, and it is unknown if his first wife and/or small daughter traveled with him or were deceased.

The circumstantial evidence tying our ancestor to the Johann Philipp in Neckareltz, as opposed to him being one of the other Johan Philip Emmerts born about that time in Germany, was that he traveled to America with two men both from Neckareltz. Johan Adam Stadler and Johannes Herpel, the step-son of Johann Philipp's aunt Anna Rosina Carl Emmert Herpel, traveled in 1730 on the "Alexander and Ann" to Philadelphia with Johann Philipp. The suposition Johann Philipp traveled with his sister Susanna Catharina who reportedly married Johan Adam Stadler was incorrect because his sister died at age 13 in 1711; instead Johan Adam Stadler married a Susanna Catharina Weyl, daughter of Peter Emme Weyl on 16 Jan 1725 in Neckareltz.

Philip arrived in Philadelphia and qualified 5 Sep 1730 by signing an oath of allegiance to the British crown. Philip was in the area of Upper Hanover Township in Philadelphia Co by 21 Sep 1731 when he and his second wife Maria Catharina were sponsors at a christening.

Philip settled for twenty years in the Goshenhoppen area in Upper Hannover Township, which was in Philadelphia Co and later became part of Montgomery Co in 1784, but did not own his land. Philip and his wife Catharina's first five children were christened at the Congregation of the New Goshenhoppen Reformed Church and three were confirmed there; additional baptismal records were in Christ Lutheran Church, Rockland Township and DeLong's Reformed Church, Maxatawny Township, Berks Co, PA.

In 1731 Philip and his wife were witnesses to the christening of Johan Phillip, son of Johannes Huth of New Goshenhoppen, and in 1733 they were witnesses to the christening of Susanna Catherina, daughter Johan Adam Stadler of New Goshenhoppen. In 1734 Philip was witness to the christening of Johannes, son of John and Anna Maria Hut/Huth. In 1736 Philip was noted as head of a family belonging to the Congregation of New Goshenhoppen, Reformed, Upper Hanover Township, Philadelphia Co, PA; also included as heads of the 45 families were Johannes and Balthasar Hut and Caspar Kamm, his father-in-law.

Philip went back to Germany with his brother-in-law George Pfalzgraff in 1740 to dispose of their father-in-law Johannes Caspar Kamm's interests there. Philip and George returned to America on the St Mark, the same ship on which a distant relative Martin Loy later of North Carolina traveled.

In 1752 when the land he lived on was sold, Philip moved to eastern Berks Co, PA and resided in Longswamp Township. That year Philip served as executor in New Hanover Township, Philadelphia Co, PA for his father-in-law Johannes Caspar Kamm's will which included Philip's wife Catherina as an heir. Philip was taxed in Longswamp Township in 1752 and 1758.

Philip died intestate and his wife Catharina of Richmond Township was granted administration rights on 28 May 1762. In 1762 George Emmert, a weaver who was Philip's son, was listed as a bondsman in the probate of the estate. The estate was appraised for 64 pounds on 5 Jun 1762 and the inventory was filed in court on 26 Jun 1762. The inventory included typical farm tools, kitchen wares, 2 pewter tankards, pewter and earthen vessels, spinning wheel, books, bed, walnut table, side saddle and bridle and 2 lamps; the appraisers appeared to go to great lengths to list everything including 5 pounds of feathers and the iron chain in the chimney -- these latter two being a first this researcher has seen. What was interesting was what was missing: no livestock, wagon, eating utensils, iron, chairs, cabinets, chest, linens and/or other materials which are usually included in even the inventory of the poorest homes, so either the Emmerts were quite poor or Catharina gave a lot of things away before the inventory was taken. Catharine filed an estate account on 2 Jun 1764 consisting of limited debts paid including a number of bills for preparing the estate papers as a result of her being unable to write.

On a 1999 trip to Germany, researcher and Emmert descendant Grady Loy stopped in Bad Wimpfen, a historic spa town in the district of Heilbronn in the Baden-Württemberg region of southern Germany where there were Emmerts living between 1620 and 1660. Bad Wimpfen is not far from Eppingen, where there were Kamms, a family who intermarried with Emmerts. At some point Bad Wimpfen was awarded to the province of Hesse-Darmstadt which extended to the north bank of the Neckar River and within a few miles of Mosbach, which was and remains in Baden, and was where the Loy and Emmert families resided.

Researcher and descendant Nancy J. Emmert determined Johann Philip was from Neckarelz, Mosbach, Baden based on families from Neckaretz who traveled together on the ship Alexander and Ann with Johann Philipp and his interaction with these families in Pennsylvania with whom the Emmerts exchanged children's christening sponsorships. On a 2002 genealogy research trip to Neckarelz, Patricia Emmert Manning and Nancy Emmert researched German church records where they found Johann Philipp's christening certificate, met with the Neckarelz town historian, and gathered with over 30 Emmert descendants. The descendants prepared a joint descendancy chart; recorded what was known about family history based on family bibles, other family records and traditions; and the findings were published in the Pennsylvania Genealogical Society Magazine. Of the five known Johan Philip Emmerts living close to each other in the same time frame in southwestern Germany, this research trip was what proved the Johan Philip Emmert born in 1704 was our ancestor.

Understanding naming conventions was key in doing German genealogical research. Two given names were usually given at baptism -- the first name corresponding to a christian saint's name, usually the name of the saint on whose day the child was born. Sometimes the same first name was given to all sons and the same first name given to all daughters in a family. The first name was usually not used later in life, so homing in on the second name was key for doing research. Thus among our German ancestors, first names of Johann and Anna were less important than middle names of Philip, Jacob, Andreas, Caspar, Catharina, Barbara, Margaretha and Elisabetha in civil records. Also as in other cultures, the first son was often named after the patriarchal grandfather and the second son after the matriarchal grandfather (unless the patriarchal grandfather was living and the maternal grandfather already deceased), whereas this pattern was reversed for daughters with the first one named after the mother's mother and the second after the father's mother. Following children often used other discernable German naming patterns.

Father:Johann Caspar Kamp / Kamm (9 Jun 1679 - )
Mother:Anna Catharina 'Catherine' Franck (c 1691 - )
Charts:Susan Paulding Ruff * lineage
     Maria Catharina Kamp / Kamm was christened on 23 Dec 1713 at Eppingen, Kraichgau, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. She was born on 23 Dec 1713 at Eppingen, Kraichgau, Baden-Wuerttemberg. She was the daughter of Johann Caspar Kamp / Kamm and Anna Catharina 'Catherine' Franck. Maria Catharina Kamp / Kamm immigrated in 1722 to America. She married Johann Philipp Emmert, son of Hans Peter Emmert and Anna Magdalena Edinger, in 1731 at New Goshenhoppen Reformed Church, Upper Hanover, Philadelphia Co, Pennsylvania. Maria Catharina Kamp / Kamm died at Philadelphia Co, Pennsylvania.
      Maria Catharina Kamm likely followed German naming customs and was known as Catharina. She was also noted with the surname Kampf. Of note, Eppingen where Maria Catharina was born was not near Augsburg as many online researchers have aligned it; Eppingen was in the historic region Kraichgau or as modernly aligned Eppingen is in Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

Johan Jorg 'George' Emmert I1,2,3,4,5,6

M, ID# 3563, (Oct 1736 - a 11 Apr 1807)
Father:Johann Philipp Emmert (17 Feb 1704 - b 28 May 1762)
Mother:Maria Catharina Kamp / Kamm (23 Dec 1713 - )
     Johan Jorg 'George' Emmert I was born in Oct 1736. He was the son of Johann Philipp Emmert and Maria Catharina Kamp / Kamm. Johan Jorg 'George' Emmert I was christened on 31 Oct 1736 at New Goshenhoppen Reformed Church, Upper Hanover, Philadelphia Co, Pennsylvania. He married Anna Elizabeth Weichel, daughter of Michael Weigel, on 18 Oct 1757 at Augustus Evangelical Lutheran Church, New Hanover, Philadelphia Co, Pennsylvania. Johan Jorg 'George' Emmert I died a 11 Apr 1807 at Sullivan Co, Tennessee.
      Johan Jorg "George" Emmert I, also known as Emmitt, and his father Johan Philip Emmert were taxed in Longswamp Township, Berks Co, PA in 1758. By 1762 George was living in Richmond Township, Philadelphia, PA where he was taxed. That year George was a bondsman in the probate of Johan Philip Emmert's estate, Berks Co., PA. George also received administration documents on 23 Feb 1764 for his sister Fronica's probate and later participated in his brother Peter's 1777 probate. His signatures match in all three probates. From 1763 to 1769 George was an innkeeper at Ruscomb Manor, Berks Co, PA.

In May 1769 a judgement was filed against George for 84 pounds by Adam Witman, a Reading innkeeper, Berks Co., PA. In Nov that year as a result of a suit by Montgomery Co, PA landowner Samuel Miles for 292 pounds, George's property in Ruscombmanor, adjacent to the land of Michael Sigfridt, was sold by the Berks Co, PA sheriff to satisfy his debt. In May 1770 George Emmert, Nicholas Moyer (his sister-in-law's brother), Michael Sigfridt and Philip Weigel were sued by Adam Witman for 106 pounds; George had no land and no money to pay his debts.

George with his sons George and Jacob left Pennsylvania for Maryland and then settled in Virginia where he was on Loudoun Co, VA tax lists in 1770, 1771, 1779 and 1782. He purchased and then sold land in 1777 and 1778 respectively in Berkeley Co, VA; he purchased and sold land in Hampshire Co, VA again in 1780 and 1782 respectively with his wife. He moved in 1784 to Sullivan Co, TN.

George deeded his remaining land in 1807 in Sullivan Co., TN to his grandsons George and Andrew, sons of his son John of Sullivan Co, TN.

In 1827 George's descendants sold land. On 1 Aug 1827 John Emmert et al sold William Derry (sp?) 205 acres in Sullivan Co, TN. In addition to John, the following family members were party to the deed: Peter Emmert, George Emmert, Jacob Emmert, Henry Massengil senior and his wife Elizabeth, Sarah Emmert, Matilda Emmert and Polly Emmert (Sulivan Co, TN Deed Book 10, p. 358). Shortly afterwards on 21 Sep 1825 Michael Massengil sold William Derry another 205 acres bordering the land where the Emmerts lived. (Sullivan Co, TN Deed Book 10, p. 365).

Two George Emmerts lived in Berks Co, PA where our George was born. One was relatively poor and based on circumstantial evidence of Johan Philip's sons Jacob and Frederick moving to Hampshire Co, VA and then Frederick moving to Tennessee, Johan Philip's son George Emmert was believed to be the man who moved to Hampshire Co, VA and then on to Tennessee. The other George Emmert (16 Jan 1718, Germany - 5 Feb 1796, Berks Co, PA) was quite wealthy and did not fit with the finances of the Johan Philip Emmert family. On 11 Aug 1788 the latter George wrote his will naming his wife Eve Maria Graeff and children Martin, George Leonard, Barbara Houtz, Eve Hoffman, Margaret Knable, Catherine Shad, Maria Elizabeth, Andrew, and Magdalena Holtzman; his will was probated 7 Apr 1796. Living in the same area as the Johan Philip family, this wealthy George could potentially have been a nephew.

Johann Caspar Kamp / Kamm1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11

M, ID# 3568, (9 Jun 1679 - )
Father:Michael Kamp (2 Sep 1651 - 17 May 1721)
Mother:Anna Salome (1648 - 2 Apr 1690)
Charts:Susan Paulding Ruff * lineage
     Johann Caspar Kamp / Kamm was born on 9 Jun 1679 at Eppingen, Kraichgau, Wuerttemberg, Germany. He was the son of Michael Kamp and Anna Salome. Johann Caspar Kamp / Kamm married Anna Catharina 'Catherine' Franck on 3 Mar 1710 at Eppingen, Kraichgau, Wuerttemberg. Johann Caspar Kamp / Kamm immigrated c 1722 to America. His estate was probated on 17 Jan 1751/52 at New Hanover Township, Philadelphia Co, Pennsylvania.
      Johan Caspar Kamm under German naming conventions was known as Caspar. Caspar also used the surnames Kamp, Kemp, Kammp, Kammpf, Kampf and Kumpf. Caspar's German church and immigration records and his will provided proof for his family. The "Ortssippenbuch Eppingen" of compiled church records by Karl Diefenbacher and the well researched book, "Emigrants from Eppingen to America in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries," by Annette K. Burgert were used to establish Caspar's parents' birth, marriage and death details. Caspar's marriage and children's birth and christening dates were recorded in the Eppingen Reformed Church (Evangelische Kirche Eppingen), with the exception of his last child who was born in America. As discussed later, Caspar was not Konrad Kamp of Eppingen who was born 60 years before our ancestor.

Caspar was a blacksmith and it appears all the Kamms and Kamps in Eppingen were blacksmiths or farriers. Getting enough work in a small country village was likely difficult. Import of cheap metals from America and a shift to northern European trade routes also taxed the south's economy in the early 1700s. Caspar moved to America with his family and a newborn. Caspar and his wife were charter members of the New Goshenhoppen Reformed Church.

In 1723 Caspar signed a petition in Limerick Township, Philadelphia Co, PA to have a road built from Limerick through Falkner Swamp to Oley which is now in Montgomery Co, PA. Caspar's will written on 3 Nov 1741 names his children including their married names, his sons-in-law and his wife.

Caspar's sons-in-law Johann Philip Emmert and George Pfalzgraff went to Germany in 1740 to settle Caspar's interests there and returned to America on the same ship "St Mark" on which distant relative Martin Loy of North Carolina who married into the Emmert line arrived.

In his will Caspar Kamm of New Hanover Township, a blacksmith, "an old and weakly man" bequeathed his wife Catharine, all estate. After her death, his estate was to be divided in equal shares among his children, who were: eldest daughter Catharine Emert(on), Barbara Pfaltzgraff and Anna Schelleberger, dec'd, whose share was to go to her son John "at manly age" or marriage. He left one shilling sterling to son-in-law John Schelleberger and youngest daughter Veronica. Executors were Phillip Emmert and Georg Paltsgrave, and witnesses were Valentine Geiger and Bernhard Dodderer. (written 3 Nov 1741, proved 17 Jan 1752 in Philadelphia)

Many researchers confuse our ancestor Johann Caspar Kamm with a Konrad Kamp also of Eppingen born two generations before our Caspar. Conrad died 9 Jan 1691 at age 72, so he was born about 1619. Trees misaligned Conrad with our Caspar's wife and parents; thus the phoney name Conrad Caspar Kamm/p is incorrectly noted for Casper Kamm on numerous genealogy data postings. Both Casper Kamp's and Konrad Kamp's families are detailed in the Eppingen records published in Ortssippenbuch Eppingen, wherein Konrad is listed with his wife Catharina (died 25 Apr 1678) and children Anna Elizabeth, Anna Barbara, Catharina, Anna, Heinrich Philipp and Margarete, some names of which are the same as the children of our Johann Caspar Kamm.

Anna Catharina 'Catherine' Franck1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

F, ID# 3569, (c 1691 - )
Charts:Susan Paulding Ruff * lineage
     Anna Catharina 'Catherine' Franck was born c 1691 at Boxberg, Main-Tauber-Kreis, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. She married Johann Caspar Kamp / Kamm, son of Michael Kamp and Anna Salome, on 3 Mar 1710 at Eppingen, Kraichgau, Wuerttemberg, Germany. Anna Catharina 'Catherine' Franck immigrated c 1722 to America. She died at Pennsylvania.
      Anna Catharina Franck was born in Boxberg, Germany -- not Bocksberg, Germany and not Boxberg, Rhineland, Germany -- a southern suburb of Heidelburg.

Primary records found for Anna Catharina Franck are not for our ancestor. Two Anna Catharina Francks who are both daughters of Michael and Peter and are born in 1692 and 1717 cannot be our ancestor. Similarly Anna Catharina Frank born to Hanns Adam Franck and Anna Catharina in 1697 is not a good possibility because she was born in Lauterecken, which is far from both Boxberg and Eppingen. Another Anna Catharina born in 1686 married Johan Peter Hirt.
