I've been searching for the ancestors and descendants of Benjamin Auker. This is my 3rd. great-grandfather. This is the facts that I currently know about him. He was born somewhere in Pennsylvania about 1820's-1830's. he was married to Rachel Whitenack in Warren County, Ohio, November 18, 1849 and he died on March 1909, I believe in Randolph County, Indiana.
On the FamilySearch.com website I found the descendant line of a Casper Aucker born about 1750 in North Germany, he was married to an Eva. According to the file he came to America in 1767 on a boat named Sally.
As his descendant line reads much the the family settled in Snyder County, Pennsylvania and resided there for several years. Many descendant lines appear to still be there from some of the searches that I've done.
According to the file of Casper's descendant line there was a Benjamin Auker born about 1829 in Snyder County, Pa and died in 1908.
I believe that this Benjamin Auker and my 3rd. great-grandfather Benjamin Auker are one in the same. Is there anyone out there who can help me verify this information?
Also I would be interested in sharing what little that I have on this line and learning more of other Auker Lines.
I've seen the name spelled Aucker, Acker, Auker, Ocker so far.
