I am researching the decendants of Jacob Killinger, born in Germany in 1709, and Anna Katren/Katrina (last name unknown).The couple emmigrated to the United States arriving on September 30, 1743, after traveling aboard the ship Robert and Alice, flagged in Rotterdam, Sweden.They settled in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania.
By 1760 Jacob was the Overseerer of Roads for the Township of Lebanon.
The couple had at least three sons, Andrew, George and Michael.All of whom appeared to have served in the Revolutionary War.
Jacob is my 6th Great Grandfather.
Contributions, additions and corrections to any data posted here are greatly appreciated.
