I am glad you responded. I have attached a run-down of what I have so far ...
Hannsen Benckhardt was born in 1532 somewhere in Germany. I don't have a wife's name, but he had a son, Johan Benckhardt, born 21 September 1583 in Bayern Germany. Johan married Anna Werner, born 1590. They had a son named Hans Joerg Benckhardt, born 16 June 1614 in Neustadt, Coburg, Bayern, Germany. Hans married Ursula Schneider, born 18 November 1609 in Bayern, Germany. She died in 1645 in Bayern. Her father was names Jacob Schneider and her mother was Anna Von Lahr.
Hans and Ursula had a son named Johann Nicolai Benckhardt born 7 July 1645 in Bayern, Germany. He died 30 March 1717. Johann married Anna Maria Kissman September 23, 1669. She was born 16 February 1651 and died 5 September 1710. They had two sons: Johann Benckhardt, born 28 November 1677 in Neustadt, Coburg, Germany. Johan died 20 May 1721. The other son was named George Adam Benckert (note the change of spelling). George was born in February of 1675. He died in 1702. I don't know who George Adam Benckert married, but he had a son, Peter Benckert.
Peter Benckert married Maria M. Scheuring, born 1687. They had a son, George Benckert, born 1727 in Lehrensteinsfeld, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. He died in 1777.
I don't know who George Benckert married but he had a son named George Frederick Benckert, born 1764 in Bayern, Germany. George Frederick died in 1840 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
George Federick Benckert married Jane Childs, 18 January 1784 in Bermondsey, London, England. Jane's father was Samuel Childs. Her mother's name was Mary, but I don't have a maiden name for her. Jane was born 3 March 1764 in Dorking, Surrey, England. She died 17 January 1842 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. George and Jane had a son named James Matthais Benckert, born 5 July 1798, Swans Mead St, Bermondsey, England. He died 12 April 1859, Marshall, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
James Matthais Benckert married Hannah McDonald in 1822 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Hanna was born in 1804 in New Jersey. She died 26 September 1886, perhaps in Philadelphia, I am not sure yet. James and Hanna had 9 children, all born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Three girls - Catherine Benckert, born in 1826; Amanda Benckert, born in 1830; and Frances Benckert, born in 1845. Their sons were named: John David Benckert, born in 1822 - died 7 August 1876 in Philadelphia; James Mathais Benckert, born 1824; William McDonald Benckert, born 17 November 1827, died 15 May 1900 in Philadelphia; George F. Benckert, born in 1832, died 1 October 1865 in Philadelphia; Jacob Benckert, born in 1838, died 19 April 1883 in Philadelphia; and Thomas H. Benckert, born in 1841.
My part of the Benckert line follows Jacob who married Rebecca Jane Jones, born 1841 in Philadelphia. I don't have a date of death for her. Jacob and Rebecca had a son, Samuel J. Benckert, born 22 November 1862 in Philadelphia. He died in 1905 in Philadelphia.
Samuel J. Benckert married Charlotta B. Shoemaker, who was born in 1861 in Philadelphia. Her father was John Shoemaker, born in 1812. Her mother was named Elizabeth, born in 1822, but I don't have a maiden name. Charlotta had a brother John F. Shoemaker, born in 1860.
Samuel J. and Charlotta had a daughter, Irene Helen Benckert, born 29 June 1888, I think in Philadelphia. She died 17 August 1964 in Philadelphia.
Irene Helen Benckert married Francis Wainwright Phillippe 17 August 1906 at a Methodist Episcopal Church located at Fifth Street and Snyder Avenue, Philadelphia. Francis was born 4 February 1884 in Philadelphia. He died 13 October 1967 in Philadelphia. They had three children, all born in Philadelphia: Samuel Daniel Phillippe, born 11 October 1908; Francis, born 28 April 1910; and Irene Helen, born 17 August 1912.
My father was Samuel Daniel Philllippe. That brings you up to date on what I know so far. I am still looking and double checking information.
Hopefully, you will be able to fill in some blanks for me. If not, maybe I was able to give you some information. In either case, I look forward to hearing from you.
