Carol, Since the reference on Abraham Henckle and wife Catherine Miller was from 1982, probably the one I would favor.
I have records of Sebastian and George Teter, two brothers, emigrated from Schwaigern to America in 1738. It is recorded that Sebastian and his entire family died in the new land in 1745. There is no mention of Von Hinkle being with them nor can I find any reference to Von Hinkle.
The problem is that there were two George Teters and some how their children have been mixed. Johann George and wife, Maria Margaret Luttman settled in the Hebron Church community and included the eight children that I listed in my last posting(459). The other George Teter lived on the Opequon, which was up in the Valley of Virginia, across the mountains from the Hebron Community. George Teter of the Opequon came to America on the Ship Allen and signed the oath at Philidelphia on Sep 15, 1729. Most of the immigrants on the Allen were Dunkards (German Baptist Brethern). The known children of this George Teter of the Opequon are: 1. George Teter who married Sarah Pearis, and went to southwestern Virginia, and then to Kentucky. 2. John Teter who married ca. 1768 Eve Turney (Turni) who also went to southwestern Virginia and died in 1818. 3. Capt. Samuel Teter who married ca. 1769 Mary Doddridge, he lived in Bedford and Washington Counties,Pa., and died in Union County, Ohio. No other children are listed and no relationship to George or Our Michael Teter is indicated.
These records were taken from the 300 page Teter manuscript by Professor Joseph M. Kellogg.
I believe that the Henckel that founded the German Lutheran Church in America was Anthony Jacob Henckel. He arrived in Philidelphia on 3 June 1717, and was the pastor of the "Old Swamp Church" at New Hanover from 1717 to 1728. In 1721 he fouunded St. Michaels Lutheran Church in Germantown, Pa., where he, his wife and son Anthony Jr. are buried.
I have no info as to the parents of George of the Opequon.
