Surnames: Yunker, Junker
My relatives came from Baden-Baden, Germany. They arrived in New York aboard the ship Connecticut on May 23, 1855. Michael, wife Frances, sons Florian/Lorenz, Alexander, and Johann (my Great-grandfather). They settled in New York, New Jersey, Ohio, and Arkansas. I have information I would be happy to share. I have no specific information going back to Germany and would love to have some help in this area. Thanks!

I have not come across an Albert Yunker but there is a Charles in our family tree. As far as I know he did not have children. I have attached a picture. Does it look familiar?
Keep in touch.

Did find another Charles. He would have been a son of my great-grandfather's brother. They went from Ohio to Arkansas. Charles then moved to California and had a son, Charles. I have not confirmed but I think my great-great grandfather Michael had brothers who came to America. Maybe somewhere along the line I will find a connection. Good to hear from you. Happy New Year!

Yes you would think we are all related, but we spell our name thus: Yuncker. There are a bunch in Ohio and Michigan and I think Wisconsin, all with the C" in their name, I think. At least the Mich and Ohio ones do. My family is f rom Alsace, France.

Marcia, One of the men in the picture that you posted looked a lot like my father. My Junkers were from Berlin and emigrated to Canada in the 1940's during ww2. Could we be related? My grandfather's name was Fritz Junker or Fred Junker. His wife was Charlotte Junker (nee: Keller). I don't know a lot about the family and would love to know more.

Charli.
