The Latest on our 2019 Henckel Family Reunion on June 14, 15, & 16 in Frederick, Maryland:

Hi Henckel Cousins, I hope you have made your reservations to attend our 2019 reunion in Frederick, Maryland.  As I stated in the December 2018 Newsletter, this year we will visit locations where two of Anthony Jacob and Maria Elizabeth Henckel’s adult children made their homes.  We will focus on George Rudolphus (Branch IV) and Maria Catherine Henckel Apple (Branch VII) and the Lutheran churches that they helped to establish.

For those who did not receive the December 2018 newsletter, we will be visiting the beautiful country side where their farms were located. We will also visit two of the Lutheran Churches as well as The Apple Church (UCC today) which the families helped to establish in the mid – 1700’s. Saturday the 15th, we have a 10:00 AM presentation by the historian of the Evangelical Lutheran Church; there is a parking garage near the church.  Our lunch will be at the large pavilion at The Thurmont Park, Thurmont, MD, and will be catered by Hollinger Restaurant and Catering.  After lunch a visit to The Apple Church, Thurmont very near where Peter and Maria are buried.  After that we make a short visit to Lutheran Church near the Old German Monocracy Settlement.    Additionally, we will be visiting “Old Town” Frederick, which is one of the most historical and pretty cities in all of America.

Please make your reservations soon at The Hilton Garden Inn, 7226 Corporate Court, Frederick, MD 21703 which is our 2019 Reunion Base and send the attached form.  We have reserved both king and double sized rooms at a great rate of $119 + tax.  Please call the Hilton Garden Inn in Frederick directly at 1-240-566-1500 to make your reservations.  Be sure to tell them you are with the group name “Henckel Family Reunion” in their database to get this special rate!
