I am a family genealogist and have an extensive Streit family branch linked to my family.
I saw an inquiry in the gen forum about a Rev Christian Streit born, Somerset Co, Pa....well
maybe I can help a bit.....
my Streit family branch has the following:
Johan Leonardt Streit born Germany abt 1630-1640
married an unkn Anna Maria
son Christian Streit
That Christian Streit born Germany abt 1660-1670
married a Elisabeth Catherina Schulfhauss Nov 3, 1696 at the Kettenberg Church, Kirberg, Germany (abt 24 km N of Weisbaden)
his address there was 6257 Kirberg.......and the wife was from Daissbach a town E of there on the banks of the Rhine river. (data verified and proven in Ger and thru NYC Lutheran ch records.)
their children were:
1) Anna Maria Streit born abt 1699.....married Lucas Teeple (my relative) May 17,1722 (NYC Lutheran ch records)
2) Anna Catherina Streit born born Aug 23, 1697
3) Johan Leonardt Streit unkn DOB
4) Johan Frederick Streit unkn DOB married another relative of mine....Eckhardt..
5) Johan Jacob Streit Oct 15, 1704.....
This family was one of the Palatine immigrant families that went to the Palatine camps on the Hudson river abt 1710.....arriving in NYC thru England from Amsterdam mid summer-Sept 1709 and 1710.
Johan Leonardt and Johan Jacob, brothers were well known and vestrymen of the church at Pluckemin, SOMERSET CO, New Jersey later on and are well documented there...Johan Frederick was in the Kingston NY area.
Johan Jacob Streit was a neighbor to Lucas Teeple(mentioned above)there in Pluckemin......
so seeing that they were all born +- 1700 and marrying age at 1720 or so it is a possibility that...
as was the custom of naming children, that your Rev Christian Streit, born abt 1749 in SOMERSET CO...(Pa?) could be a son of either Johan Jacob (jacob) or Johan Leonardt (Leonard).....and that they named the son after the Grandfather---Christian....the time line would be just about correct........
Johan Frederick's daughter Anna Maria (also) b June 15, 1726 married the son of another Teeple descendant, Nov 23, 1748.....making the 2 Anna Maria Streits, aunt and neice....
all my info comes from documented church records and baptisms....and from the NJ archives...
from my research into German derivitive families like this...it was a common occurance of naming children after relatives....
If you are interested, contact me...I would be willing to share my GEDCOM and data with you.
