Ziegels Church

Johan Adam Braus and his wife, Anna Catharina Kuch, came to PA in 1738. They settled in what is now Upper Macungie Township, Lehigh Co., next to neighboring Weisenberg Township. Adam Braus donated the 41 acres upon which Ziegels Church (in Weisenberg Township) was built. The church has additional copies of commemorative booklets which were published for the 250th anniversary. Adam Braus was a signer of the original 1750 Union church agreement and probably of most interest to researchers is the color picture in the inside back cover of the deed box of 1771. Adam's name is one of four names written on the lid. If any descendants are interested in purchasing a 52 page booklet, please contact Ziegels Union Church, 9990 Ziegels Church Rd., Breinigsville, PA 18031. Cost for the booklet is $10 and $2 for postage if you wish to have it mailed.
