I'd LOVE to see your database. I am descended collaterally from Martin Kitzmiller. His wife was Juliana Bankert (also Benkert, Benker, etc.). I am descended from Juliana's brother, Jacob Bankert. I live in Westminster, MD, not too far south of where Kitzmiller's mill was located. Kitzmillers and Bankerts came over on the ship Mortonhouse together in 1728 (Jacob was 11 years old; came with his father and mother, Christofel and Anna Eva Benker), but we have no further record of Christofel. We think that young Jacob probably lived with his brother-in-law Kitzmiller and was apprenticed to him as a miller. Jacob eventually purchased land and built a mill in the 1750s north of Westminser (what is now the Shrive "homestead" after the Shrivers bought it from the Jacob's heirs.
Any information you have would be appreciated.
