    HI
    I am from Branch 11 (2) Having Recently discovering Jacob Henklel (Hinkle)1732-1789 direct relationship to his Father Johann Gerhardt Anthony Henckel thru his brother John Justus Henckel and Rev David’s Grandfather to Rev David Henckel listed him as first cousin when in Rowan NC at Dutchman’s Creek. I placed Jacob in Rowan at that location at that time with a land purchase on Dutchmans creek 1785. He is the only Jacob Hinkle in that area at that time. Jacob’s Brother is also called cousin by Rev Paul.

    NOW I need to connect William Hinkle 1778-1831 to his Father Jacob Hinkle 1732-1789 (above) I have them in land purchases but is here are proof of Father to son? anywhere????

    ALSO LOOKING for the Connection of son to son Osbirn Walker married Christina Hinkle (wife of William)
    Osbirn William Henry Walker 1799-1867**CONNECT son to John Walker PATRIOT 1748 ab-1829***
    His mother Elizabeth McCampbell Walker 1765-1840*** daughter of Samuel 1743-1804
    His wife Christian Clara Hinkle Walker 1803-1876** her Father William Henckel 1778 son of Jacob Henckel 1732
    Their daughter Susan Caroline Walker DeLapp**
    (NOTE Christina Henckel Walker’s Mother was Jane White daughter of Hugh White of Fishing Creek SC)
    (Jacob Henckel 1732 is from Spread Eagle Tavern in Lancaster PA and moved to Lincolnton NC with son William)
    I have all the information on Christian from her back to now an on the White’s….

    I am interested in purchasing the book on the genealogy of the Henckels, but my family is descended from Valentine Geiger, does any of the book follow his lineage?

  4. Check your sources on John Justus Hinkle wife. I am a Branch V and have visited his and is wife’s grave recently in the Germany Valley. Her name was Maria Magdelena Eschelmann.

    • Anthony Jacob was John Justice’s father, not his grandfather. John Justice was born 7/9/1709 not in 1733. John Justice’s son, John Justice Hinkle (Jr) was born 1//3/1752. I do not know where you are getting your information, but you need to find another source. Richard Henkel

    Very interesting, since I have John Justice Hinkle 1733 with his grandfather as Anthony Jacob Henckel 1668-1728

    I have been researching my family history on all sides for the last few years. Just came across this website when searching for John Justice. From what i have read I am a member of the Branch V. Please verify my findings.
    John Justice and Elizabeth Levering had a daughter Sarah Hinkle married Henry Albrecht had a daughter Margaret Elizabeth Albrecht. She married Jacob William Britscher and they had a son John Quincy Britcher married Mary Anne McKinney daughter Rosella E Britcher married a Martin – had a son Charley H Martin married Sallie A Teal Their child – Edna Margaret is my Grandmother.

    • We as an “Association” do not do genealogy studies for our members, however, I have posted your comment on asking for verification of your family tree. One comment, the John Justice Hinkle(I assume)you mentioned who was married to Elizabeth Levering. John Justice Hinkle (head of Branch V) was married to Maria Magdalena Eschmann in about 1730, his son John Justice (Jr.) was married to Christina Negeley in 1774. Not sure where you got your information, but would check it out again, it is quite suspect. The Henckel Genealogy which is currently out of print, but will be reprinted in February or early March may help you in determining your exact lineage. You will be able to purchase it on this website once reprinted.

      I have similar information connecting my family to John Justus Henckel (1733-1816) and Elizabeth Levering (1732-1782). They had a daughter Margaret Henckel () m. John Deado/Ditoe/etc and their daughter Mary married Andrew Brugh. There is a lot of information about this John Justus and Elizabeth Levering but, like Viveca, I have gotten caught up in figuring out which John Justus is the correct one becuase the name is repeated so many times over the generations. Viveca, our John and Elizabeth are on Find A Grave. I believe Our John Justus is the son of Jacob Anthony Henckel, son of Anthony Jacob and brother of the John Justus Sr. Hope this is correct and that it helps untangle the yarn ball. 🙂

      • Anthony Jacob Henckel’s son John Justus was born in Daudenzell, Germany in 1706 and he died at the Hinkle Fort from a gunshot wound in August 1778 while defending the fort during the Revolutionary War. He had a son, Johann Justice who was born Jan. 3, 1752 on Dutchman’s Creek in Rowan County, NC. He died in April 17, 1794. I am not sure where the John Justus who was born in 1733 and died 1782 came from. Maybe a son of one of John Justus Henckel’s brothers, that named him after John Justice(1706-1778). If you do not have a Henckel Genealogy, you may want to purchase one, it should lead you to your Henckel ancestry. If you have one, check all the spellings of Henckel, Hinkle, Henkel, etc in the index and look up John Justice ________. This might lead you to the answer.

        Is there documentation for the following statment?– “John Justus [Henckel]…died at the Hinkle Fort from a gunshot wound in August 1778 while defending the fort during the Revolutionary War.” Fascinating if true. I don’t remember reading that in any of the published Henckel works or in any of my own research. Many thanks.

    Hi, I’m interested in becoming a member. Is Robert Moore still the person to contact about this? Thanks, Terry Henkle

  8. Lynda: I just checked the Henckel Genealogy and saw that Adam Biffle married Catherine Henkle, the daughter of the Rev. John Henkle, a son of Jacob Hinkle. See pg. 215 in Henckel Genealogy (a Branch 5 Henckel). There are a lot more Biffle’s that married Henckel’s. The Henckel Genealogy can help you trace a lot of them. Hope you become a member of our Association, it would be great to have a descendent of the Biffle side of the family as a member. Richard Henkel

    Just found out that I am part of the Hinkle family. John Biffle is my fourth greatgrandfather and his mother is Catherine Hinkle. Although I have been doing family research for years, I only recently explored this branch of the family. John Biffle’s house is located in my part of the country (having been moved to Atlanta from another site). I am looking forward to exploring your site and possibly joining!

  10. I’ve carefully studied my copy of Junkin’s Henckel Genealogy, and, alas, the two separate connections I’d found to the Henckel line can’t be substantiated at this point, at least based on the genealogy. On the other hand, three different DNA-testing sites (AncestryDNA, 23andMe and Family Tree DNA), all show that I’m a DNA match for more than a dozen others who’ve found connections to the Henckel line. I’m sure there’s a connection somewhere; hope springs eternal. I’m still fascinating by the family history, and I’m glad I joined the association.

  11. The Helmick Family is mentioned on pg. 222-223 in The Henckel Genealogy. There are a lot of Helmicks mention throughout Branch V of our family. I would suggest checking The Henckel Genealogy to better understand how the Henckels and Helmicks were related. It will take some study.

    • Thanks for the tip on tracking down the Helmick connection. I ordered Junkin’s Henckel Genealogy from Apple Manor Press earlier today. I’m looking forward to seeing what it has about my lineage.

    Awesome way to connect….great idea and use of technology thanks for thinking of this

  13. I started researching my family history about a year ago, and soon discovered that I’m a Henckel descendant on my father’s side. Anthony Jacob Henckel was my 7th great grandfather. Since then, I’ve visited the site of Hinkle’s Fort and the cemetery at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church in New Market. I still have much to learn about this branch of my family; and this Web site has been very helpful. Earlier today, I sent my check to join the association. I’m looking forward to receiving the newsletters, and I’m hoping to attend one of the reunions sometime in the future.

    • It is great that you are getting into your Henckel Family history. I did the same thing 4 years ago, had no idea what my ancestry was. We will be having our next Reunion in Staunton and Waynesboro over June 17,18,19 and hope you will be able to attend. As a member you will receive a Newsletter in JAnuary and March telling you about our last Reunion and the upcoming one. Have you figured out which Branch of Anthony Jacob Henkel’s that you are from? Hope to see you in Staunton. Richard Henkel

      • Thanks for the welcome and the information, Richard! I’ve so far needed to rely mostly on family trees and on-line documents available on Ancestry.com in researching my family tree. I understand that genealogy “purists” require more in the way of proof of relationship, and that’s understandable, but the information I’ve found seems to be reliable. Also, for what it’s worth, I’m a DNA match with several people who also claim Johann Justus Henckel as an ancestor. I’m fairly sure this is my line of descent:

        Anthony Jacob Henckel (1668-1728)
        Johann Justus Henckel (1706-1778)
        Rev. Jacob Henckel (1733-1779)
        Barbara Hinkle (1752-1813) (married Jacob Adam Helmick II)
        John Wesley Helmick (1783-1863)
        Ira Ellis Helmick (1824-1915)
        Albert Lewis Helmick (1855-1933)
        Mary Christina Helmick (1884-1966) (married Leonidas Cunningham)
        Earldon Roy Cunningham (1909-1984)
        Larry Cunningham (1949-still kicking)

        I’m a seeker of the truth, and if any of this information is incorrect I would appreciate hearing about it. I would, admittedly, be disappointed if I found that I actually wasn’t a Henckel. 🙂

        –Larry

  14. Not sure if my membership is still valid or not. How can I find out? I still get emails.
