Notes for Andreas VOLCK Sr.
Came to America in 1708 with the Reverend Joshua Kocherthal. They had been promised land in New York, but the settlement failed, and Andreas and his family moved first to Philadelphia and then to Allemangel PA, where they joined the Moravians.

The family name becomes Fulk among many of the descendants.

This source says he came to America in 1709, and "moved to Lynn twp, now Lehigh Co. PA, about1735, where he warranted 150 acres of land in 1738, affiliated with the Moravian Church and died Sep 1747, leaving 8 children, 64 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren." His wife Catharina Meckel's memoir states that she died 2 Jan 1762, survived by 9 children, 64 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. and that 2 daughters and 1 son preceded Andreas Volck in death. This author favors the premise that there were 9 children.

Foulke Lupfer genealogy names 10 children altogether, but does not give death dates for most. I have listed all here.

Carmichael history cites translation in August 1973 by Raymond Hollenbach of Moravian Church Records from Allemengel and Gnadenhutten.

Foulke Lupfer genealogy says that the party arrived in New York harbor on December 18, 1708, on the "Globe", but did not reach Newburgh on the Hudson until New Year's Day 1709. This explains the apparent discrepancy in various 1708 or 1709 arrival dates. Also see notes on his son Carl, who was born on shipboard Nov. 18, 1708 and is clearly documented thus. Carl's tombstone reads 1709, source of some confusion in some records.
