French Huguenot Jacques de la Planche / Jacob Plank

I'm researching Jacques de la Planche, also known as Doctor Jacob Plank, who was a physician in Berks County in the 1700s. He was born about 1680 and died about 1760 (all I have for a wife's name is Mary Cathrine; I would love her maiden name).

I am very interested in finding new information about Jacques. His father's name was Jean (would also love info on him) but I have no mother's name. I know about Jacques' emigration from France to Switzerland and then to New York, finally ending up in Pennsylvania, but then the treasure-trove of stories ends. I do know that the de la Planche family supposedly came from Picardy.

I would *love* any information on Jacques as my Huguenot ancestry interests me immensely. Any new "tidbits" would be greatly appreciated!
