Descendant Chart for Immigrant Johan 'George' Kirchner
Known Descendants to Three Generations.
Arrived on ship
Brothers on 16 Sep 1751 at Philadelphia PA.
Also arriving on same ship was a Friederich Kirchner.
J. George Kirchner died soon after his arrival--definitely deceased by 1755.
George was married when he arrived. His wife's name was Julianna.
They had a young daughter when they arrived. Her name was Anna Barbara Kirchner.
I have surmised that these two immigrants, George and Friederich, were probably brothers.
George settled in or near Upper Salsford Township, Montgomery Co PA.
