If the York County family that this message refers to is the one I think it is (children Jacob, Barbara, Nicolaus, Lorentz, Peter, and Philipp) then the origins are revealed in a 1992 book "Eighteenth Century Emigrants from the Northern Alsace to America" by Annette Kunsleman Burgert. First of all, Jacob Stambach who arrived on the "Loyal Judith" in 1732 is not the father of these children. He was listed as age 28 on one of the passenger lists, which makes him too young. The account of this family begins on page 477 of the aforementioned book. According to this book, Johannes Stambach, son of Felix and Anna Maria Stambach, married in 1717 to Maria Catharina Meyer, daughter of Jacob Meyer and his wife Anna. This marriage took place in the village of Kutzenhausen in the northern Alsace. The couple had these children, all of whose baptisms are recorded in Kutzenhausen.
Johann Jacob Stambach, born 9 January 1719.
Maria Barbara Stambach, born 25 July 1721
Nicolaus Stambach, born 19 August 1723
Lorentz Stambach, born 8 December 1725
Johann Peter Stambach, born 11 February 1729
Johann Philipp Stambach, born 9 June 1731
Johannes Stambach, father of these children, died 17 January 1733. His widow remarried 17 November 1733 to Niclaus Honig. They had two children.
Anna Maria Honig, born 26 November 1734, died 1738
Johannes Honig, born 3 June 1736
Niclaus Honig and Jacob Stambach appear on the passenger list of the ship "Robert and Alice" which arrived in Philadelphia in 1739. The other Stambach sons were too young to sign. The Stambach children's mother, Maria Catharina (Meyer) (Stambach) Honig must have died on the voyage or shortly after arrival, because Niclaus Honig remarried 25 December 1739 to Maria Eliesebetha Fischer in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Subsequent documents in York County prove the relationship between the Stambach children and their half-brother Johannes Honig.
