In Reply to: Re: Christopher Dunkelberger b. 1749 Germany by Elizabeth Lynch of 255

Liz...Hi! I am researching the Hill Family
History and you were wondering about
this Elizabeth Hill who was the wife of
Christopher Dunkelberger. Well, this
Anna Elizabeth Hill was the daughter of
John Daniel Hill and Anna Catharine
Seibert. She was born on April 17,1757
in Windsor Twp., Berks Co., Pa. She was
baptized on May 15, 1757. Below is her
baptismal record:

Parents: Johann Daniel and Catharina Hill
Child: Anna Elisabeth Hill
Baptism Date: May 15, 1757 4 Weeks Old
Sponsors: Christian and Anna Elisabeth
Location: St. Paul's Congregation or "Smoke" Church, Windsor Twp., Berks
Co., Pa.

Anna Elisabeth Hausknecht was Joh.
Daniel Hill's sister.

This Pa. Hill Family originated in Heuchelheim, Frankenthal, Germany,
which is in the Palatinate, and two Hill
brothers - John Jacob Hill and John Daniel
Hill immigrated to Pa. about 1720. This
Joh. Daniel Hill, who was the father of
Elisabeth Hill, was the son of John Jacob
and Anna Elizabeth (Muller) Hill. Joh.
Daniel Hill was born about 1728 in Pa. and
he married Anna Catharina Seibert on
Nov. 28, 1749 at the Moselum Lutheran Church in Richmond Twp., Berks Co., Pa.
They had 6 children which were:

1. John Jacob Hill - B.: April 4, 1752
D.: Jan. 9, 1824
Marr.: Christina Gortner
Revolutioary War Veteran

2. Catharina Hill - B.: 1755

5. Frederick Hill - B.: Sept. 8, 1758
D.: May 7, 1833

6. Susanna Hill - B.: ?
D.: ?
Marr.: ?

Joh. Daniel Hill later remarried to Barbara
? after the death of Catharine and moved
to Westmoreland Co., Pa. where he died
in 1794. The Hill Family in Windsor Twp.,
Berks Co. was close to the Dunkelberger
Family who also lived in Windsor Twp.,
Berks Co., Pa. Several members of the Hill
Family and the Dunkelberger Family did
intermarry. Here are several of these
Hill - Dunkelberger marriages.

Anna Elizabeth Hill and Christopher
Dunkelberger - Before Mentioned

Maria Christina Hill - Also a daug of Joh.
Daniel Hill and Catharina Seibert
and John Dunkelberger
More Information Needed On This
