Joseph Eckroat?s information as of 7-19-07 Eggenrodde
As to Anna Margaret Eckenroth, she is buried in Starner's cemetery in Tompkins County N.Y.
If William Kirkpatrick thinks John Eckenroth is born in 1709 this would make him; Henrich Kreienschmidt (Joannes Henricus Kreienschmidt von Eggerode, his mother, Anna Eggenrodde and father Johan Kreyensmit)that died in 1757 by the indians.Most Children from that era had the first name of John. John means "Blessed of God"He can be found, shown as(Henrich Kreienchmidt brn. 1709 son of Johannes Kreienschmidt and son of Anna Eggenrodde) in the IGI index of the town of Eggerode Muester Germany (Preussen).

And..if he John Eckenroth,/known as Joannes Henricus Kreienschmidt von Eggerode,(Henricus Kreienschmidt, as found in the IGI index) married Anna Margaretha Elisabetha Benninck von Eggerode (known as Margaretha Elisabetha Benninck in the IGI index of Eggerode), whom was born 7-31-1709 in Eggerode and probably the following day of Christning would be 8-01-1709, her Christian birth day and died at the age of 81 years old, this would be the correct date of Anna Margaretha burried at Starner's cemetery. She is the daughter of Otto Benninck and Anna Kaear.
Anna Margaret Elisabeth Eckenroth/Benninck: born July 31st 1709, and theChristning date is: August 1st 1709: see below to link
The Jesuits collected the name from Starner?s Farm Cemetery and put it in the Conowago Catholic cemetery records. The plot B/6/G2 I think it was added as a wide area ?Book of the Dead? and given a plot number,or name was submitted by a family member close to home, even though she was buried in a different location, in that book.
John; going by ?Eckenroth? would be correct, since he was the son of Anna Eggenrodde?As to why he took his mother?s surname is probably because his mother belonged to the family of Eggenrodde and not his father?s occupational name, Kreyensmit/ or Smith. From what I understand, from a Historian in Eggerode,is that after the restoration of the Catholic Church in the area of Eggerode after the 30 years war, the family went to the new World.
John Henry Eckroth born March 18th 1721:
He is Henry Eckroth born of Johan Kreinschmidt and the same man Kreyensmit.His mother is Anna Clara Margaretha Wenninick. It is assumed that Anna Eggenrodde died and that their father,Johan Kreyensmit married a woman by the name of Anna Clara Margaretha surname Wenninick
John Wilhelm Eckroth born December 22nd 1722: He is a youngest brother of John Henry Eckenroth brn. 1709 but different mother. It is assumed that Anna Eggenrodde died and that their father,Johan Kreyensmit married a woman by the name Anna Clara Margaretha surname Wenninick
All the other children, even the daughters, can be found on the www.IGI-index.de under the town of Eggerode.
As for John Eckenroth, He and his wife, Anna Margaretha Elisabetha Eckenroth/Benninick had a son in Durlach German in the Baden Area.The son can be found as Johan Kr..e.. brn. 1707.Since this date is too early, I imagine it should be 1727 rather than 1727 and that the Deutsch number 2 written was misinterpreted as a 0 than a 2
Also the names of the neighbors are from Durlach, Baden Germany; such as the Dietz family and many others
