Erkenbrack-Ercanbrack Geneology

I am researching the Ercanbrack family. Have noticed several different spellings of the name (the family Bible we have has two). Census and cemetery records have different spellings also. My family originated in Fulton Co. (Johnstown) and Moravia (Cayuga Co.) New York. If any one has any information on Rev. Henry B., who married Anna Joles, or their parents, or children, I'd like to compare notes. I am also trying to connect Lorenzo D. (wife Ellen), Amos (wife Lucy), Hirum (wife Mary), and Philip (Malinda Legg) (children Clark and Edgar). Also, Howard and Sophie (unknown relationship).

Surnames: Ercanbrack, Erkenbreck, etc.
Yes, my ancestors came from Germany and yes, they were in Fulton County. My branch (Jacob Ercanbrack) moved from Fulton County to Moravia, NY in the early 1800s. I am descended from his daughter Sarah. She and her descendants remained in NY state. I'd love to correspond with you and exchange information. Please send me your address. My email is empeters@nycap.rr.com

Thanks, Emily

Have you come across any information about William Ercanbrack. He was born in 1884 and was married to Alice Hugg. We are from Illinois but I know that my family came over from Germany.
Thank you.

It looks to me like they changed the name from Erkenbrack to Ercanbrack. Many families did that to make the name more "Americanized". My Great-great grandparents were Amos and Lucy Ercanbrack. Their son - William Henry - was my great-grandfather. They had Hal Edmund Ercanbrack who was my Grandfather, who had Louise Ercanbrack, my mother.
I would love to hear from you. I am trying to trace my mother's side of the family.

Do you know if Jacob and Hepsabeth were the parents of Amos Ercanbrack? He was my great-great Grandfather.

Re: Amos Erkenbrack
The Amos Erkenbrack that I have information on was born in Cayugo County, NY in 1836 and served in the 111th Regiment NY Infantry during the Civil War. I don't have his parents names yet and am still trying to see where he fits in to my family.
If this is the same Amos as you have, I'll be glad to share the other info I have on him.

Surnames: Ercanbrack/Erkenbrack
Jacob (1786-??) and Hepsabeth (abt 1793-??)(Kellogg) Ercanbrack are the parents of Amos H. (1836-1902). Their other childern are: Sarah (1829-1899), Lorenzo (1832-1898) and Harriet (abt 1839-??). Amos married Lucy Munn. It appears they only had one child (the 1900 census states she only had one child and no other children appear in any of the census records) William H. (1857-1946).

Leslie Luther (the former Historian for the historical society in Moravia in the 60s and 70s) did a lot of research on the history of the town of Moravia and its people. According to him, William H. Ercanbrack married Elizabeth Barry (1859-1938)and their children are: William A. (1882-??), Carlton H. (1885-1968) and Earl Glenville (1886-1954. He interviewed many of the town residents, collected old newspaper articles, etc. I'd be happy to give you copies of what I got when I was there. The 1900 census states Libbie only had 3 children (it's one of the questions they asked of all women along with how many are still living).

I do not see a Hal Edmund anywhere here. There may very well be another William H. Ercanbrack that would have been the right age to be the father of your Hal Edmund.

I can send you and outline of the family tree I have and anything else you'd like. Please send me an email.
