|Jeff Braucher||RE: Braucher|
Yes Gregory, we are indeed related. Your Great Grandfather Harry H. Braucher was the son of Jonas Braucher (1817-1894). Jonas is the brother of my 3rd GG Father John Braucher (1811-1885).
They trace all the way back to Christopher Braucher (1729-1793) our 6th GG Father. He is buried at New Bethel Church in Kempton PA. I visited the various cemeteries in Berks County, PA (where the first Braucher's from Germany landed in America). I photographed nearly every Braucher graves stone in the county and have posted them to Find-a-Grave.
I attended a church service at Bethel Lutheran Church in 2011 that celebrated the 250th anniversary of the founding of the church. Christoper was one of the founding elders of the church.
The Braucher's did not remain in Berks County for too many generations. By 1800 they had begun to migrate to the frontiers of Ohio and then on to Indiana and Iowa. The biggest concentration is in Stark County Ohio. The Mudbrook Cemetery in Stark County, OH has nearly a hundred Braucher graves. In 2010/2011 I was able to visit Stark County and photograph several thousand gravestones in the cemeteries where Braucher's are buried. Throw in the families they married into, and nearly everyone in that cemetery is a relative.
Any Braucher research material you could share with me would be greatly appreciated. I have quite a bit of material up on Ancestry.com.
Look forward to hearing from you again.
