ST. MICHAEL'S LUTHERAN CHURCH - REV. ANTHONY JACOB HENCKEL

Rev. Anthonius Jacobus/Anthony Jacob Henckel 
was baptised on December 27th, 1668. 
In 1717, he brought his entire family to America; bought a farm at New Hanover and served several Lutheran congregations of the area as well as the congregation in Germantown. 
It is believed that he was the first pastor of the congregation here in Germantown.  
He died in the home of one of the members on August 12, 1728 after falling from his horse while traveling between Germantown and his home at New Hanover. 
I was not able to find this marker and this is the only photo in this blog post that was not taken by me.
(from- http://www.stmichaelsgermantown.org/?page_id=15)
His wife, Maria Elizabeth Dentzer Henckel was buried in 1744 and is one of the oldest legible stone marker in the church cemetery. 
~~~~~~~~~~~
I happened to catch two church members 
in the church and they allowed us to view 
the inside for a quick few minutes. 
The inside photos were rushed and fuzzy.
This plaque is on the left side of the alter 
in the main church - 
In Memory of 
THE REV. ANTHONY JACOB HENCKEL
Founder and First Pastor of
St. Michael's Church
and of 
MARIA ELIZABETH,
His wife,
Whose Bodies repose in the 
Adjoining Church Yard.
Sprung from a Distinguished and God
Serving Ancestry, they emigrated from
Germany into Pennsylvania in the year 
1717, Became in their turn Progenitors 
Of a Stalwart race, which settled over 
a wide area of our country and gave to 
the State  many useful Citizens and to 
the Church, Theologians, Pastors and
Missionaries of Unswerving Faith
and Rare Ability.
Their Descendants
Have Erected this Memorial
A. D. 1917
