        I believe that Georg Herbert Henckel is my 8th or 9th great grandfather. My mother was a Hinkle, her father was Warren Leslie Hinkle of North Carolina. I’ll do some digging and post again, but I’m very happy to find this website! And thank you, Steve (above), for posting! That gives me some leads! I haven’t seen anything that far back! Wow!

      • Stephen, There likely is a problem with some dates or names. Rev. A.J. Henckel died in 1728 and is buried at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church, Germantown (Philadelphia),PA. This church closed on 9/11/2017. One of his son’s was John Justice (Jost) Henkel (branch 5 in The Henckel Genealogy book) who is buried Pentelton County, WV, West of Harrisonburg, VA.

      • Stephen Hinkle said:

        I left out Johann Gerhardt Anthony Hinkle 1698 – 1736, that is one of Rev. A.J. Henckel’s son’s if I read it correctly.

      • Hi again, Stephen, Gerhardt Anthony Henckel is branch 2 in The Henckel Genealogy also lovingly known The Big Red Book by our family.

    I’m hoping someone can help me. I believe I am an 8th great grandaughter of Anthony Jacob Henckel. I’m wondering if you have any information that might help me verify that? I have a copy of a family tree but I’m not finding a lot of information on a couple of names to verify their validity. I’ve verified William Hinkle (1792-1867) as my 4th great grandfather through the family tree and ancestry.com. I cannot find a source to confirm with certainty that Jesse Hinkle born in 1763 (according to the information on my family tree)was his father. If you have anything that would help, I would appreciate it.

    • Best way to find people on your Henckel Family Tree is through the use of The Henckel Genealogy by Junkins and Junkins. We are the only legitimate source for the book. Please check on our website under the Tab Publications if you do not already have a copy.

    I have been searching for an unknown Grandfather and through DNA testing. it appears that we are descendants of Lucinda Hinkle, daughter of Charles Hinkle, son of Casper Hinkle, son of Charles Hinkle, son of Jacob Henckel, son of Anthonius Jacobus Henckel. While I am basing this all on trees from Ancestry, I’m fairly confident that some of the information is correct due to the research of others.

    • The best way to find your lineage is to go to TAB – marked “How to find your Family” and write down the people you have known or no for a fact. Start with your parent, then grandparent and great grandparent (if you know them). You need to get back to the ones born in the 1920 to 1930 with dates of birth and deaths to be able to find them in the Henckel Genealogy. If you have that then there is a strong chance you will find your ancestors all the way back to Anthony Jacob Henckel. You are a Branch V if Jacob he grandson of Anthony Jacob is indeed correct.
      That is the best way to verify your lineage. You can buy the Henckel Genealogy on our website and it is the only place that they can be bought except buying a used one on Amazon for $150+ which is a rip off.

    I am a descendent of the Rev. If the tree is accurate through the Owens family in GA.
    but I grew up within walking distance of the church. Will visit soon. I also found a Teeter cousin from the dna test so I think it’s likely. The web site is great.

  6. I am the 6th Ggson of Henry (Samuel) Teter (Dieter)1756Germany-1823Ohio. Recently had my y-DNA established as G2a3b1a2_L497+ (old desig.). My lineage compilation is on my domain at http://Starmon.com/gene.html (no ads or cookies). I am wondering if the Henckel’s have any older info on my line?
    Just cuz, TomT

    • Your name is prominent in Henckel history. Rev. Paul Henkel’s mother was Barbara Teter (Dieter), she was married to Jacob Henkel. The families migrated from Germany to Pennslyvania together, then Jacob moved his family to NC, then to the Germany Valley, WVA.

      I would suggest that you buy the Henckel Genealogy(on our website), to find how more about these two families long standing relationship.
