Schmeck Line To Ward Welsh Truckenmiller

The Schmeck Coat of Arms was shown in the book I list at the bottom of the post.  I did not copy the photo, thinking it would be easy to find online.  I was wrong - I cannot find it online.
The design was half blue, half yellow, with a red bird.

Bibliographic information



Schmeck

Descnedents of Joahnnes Schmeck by Michele Fegley Wahrenberger
Berks County Historical Society Library

Schmeck coat of arms is half blue, half yellow with a red bird

"One record says about c171 and states Alsace Tp Berks county Pa. Another says about 1720 in Germany, died in Elsass top.  But it is my belief that he was older, maybe 10-15 years older, Although I have no proof yet."  Page V


Schmeck Records, Primarily in Berks Co Pa

I'm so tangled up (as are many other researchers online, from what I have been able to sort out) in all the Schmecks in the Berks County area pre 1810, I thought it might help to list all of my records by location. 

Found in Zion's & Spies Church Records 1729-1881:
all for Henry Schmeck:
Baptism, Father, record# 277015
Mar 1781 Baptism, Father, record #277054
5 Jun 1785 Baptism, Father, record # 277122 (Andreas)
11 Sept 1785, Baptism, Sponsor, record #277131 (Daniel, Son of Jacob)
25 oct 1786, Baptism, Sponsor, record #277151

page 19 of the Zion Spies Records
Daniel Schmeck  6 weeks old, 9/11/1785 Jacob, Henry Schmeck & Wife Anna Maria

page 29 Daniel Schmeck has "a son" 8/10/1803, Sp. Henry Leinbach & Wife Katherine
(Which Daniel? Henry has a son Daniel born in 1774, Jacob has one born in 1785)

also on page 29
Henry Schmeck has "a son" 5/15/1804  Sp. Jacob Schmeck & Wife Susanna

page 30
John Schmeck has "a dau." 1804 sp. Daniel Schmeck & Katherine Heckman

page 33
John Schmeck has a son Daniel, 1807 Sp. Jacob Schmeck & Wife Susanna

page 36
Hannah Schmeck born 5/10/1812 to Philip & Elizabeth Schmeck, sp. Dieter Shalter & Hannah

Based on the Above:

Jacob Schmeck M. Susanna
Children: Daniel b. 1785
Henry & Anna Maria Grandparents?

John Schmeck M.
Children: Daughter b. 1804 Daniel b.1807
(in 1804 Sp were Daniel Schmeck, in 1807 Sp. Jacob & Susanna.  Guess would be that John is the son of Jacob & Susanna, Brother to Daniel?)

Henry Schmeck M. 
Children: Son b. 1804
Sp are Jacob & Susanna - grandparents?

Daniel Schmeck M. (possible Leinbach)
Children: Son b. 1803, 

Philip Schmeck M. Elisabeth (possibly Shalter?)
