Re: Schenck founders among the Cape Dutch
Thanks for the comment Gary.
Jost Reinhard Schincke was from Salzuflen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany and may have been born there circa 1670. Taken from the The First Fifty Years Project (http://www.e-family.co.za/ffy/g7/p7109.htm) that gives the following sources:
