Well, can't say for sure. Your family and mine seem to have come over about the same time. My Voelker ancestors arrived sometime between 1833-1839. They settled in Scioto County, OH. He (John Voelker) was a United Brethren Minister. Whether or not he had any sibling or relatives that settled elsewhere is unknown, but unlikely I think. Most family units that emigrated tended to stay in the same area for at least the first generation or two...at least that's been the trend down my different family lines. Thanks so much for replying to my post and let me know if anything comes up in your research that could be a connection!
