The inventory of Jacob Racke, inhabitant of Albisheim, Germany, dated Feb. 5, 1767, lists two sons of his first marriage, Johann Phillipp Racke and Henrich Casper Racke as being in Pennsylvania. Henrich Casper Racke was born at Albisheim, Jan. 9, 1722, son of Jacob and Anna Margaretha Racke; Johann Phillipp was born there of the same parents, Feb. 12, 1736. Henrich Casper Racke arrived at Philadelphia on the ship, St. Andreas, Sept. 9, 1749 (Strassburger-Hinke, List 128C). Johann Phillipp Racke, arrived on the ship, Britannia, Sept. 26, 1761 (Strassburger-Hinke, List 245C). Towns and villages mentioned can be located on a map in the vicinity of Kircheim-Bolanden. South of Maintz and Northwest of Kaiserslautern).

Although Johann Phillip probably had more children than Abraham that information is not known at this time.
