Mr. John Rovenolt,
You said you were a descendent of Jacob Truckenmiller. I recently found out I am a descendent of a Jacob Druckenmiller, born in 1783 in Pennsylvania. He was married to Catherine (surname unknown), born in 1788, and they had a son, also named Jacob (1829-3/30/1901). He married Esther (Hettie) Newhard (1828-1898). Jacob and Esther had 8 children. One of their sons was Hiram Druckenmiller (born about 1850), who is my great, great grandfather. The family was from Longswamp Township, Berks County, PA.
Does this sound like it could also be your family line? Could I also be a descendent of Hans Michael Truckenmiller and Jacob Truckenmiller?
Another member of ancestry.com, whose husband's ancestor married into my Druckenmiller family tree, messaged me and helped me find all of these people via Rootweb's Longswamp Township, Berks County, PA, USA database.http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=SHOW&...
She also told me there were three Jacob Druckenmillers in a row in this line, but I have yet to find the third, oldest Jacob. I'm wondering if this is the Jacob Truckenmiller you are related to.
