The Haas Family: Including Fischer, Hain, Heckert & Whetstone Families, c1630 to 1983 (Written by Margorie Van Couwenberghe and Wilma Lucas, 1983)

Page 6 states: George Hain and Veronica Koch were married c1708 to 1710.

The authors are my aunts, both deceased. I have no idea where they got the surname Koch. I have been using it because I found it in this source.

Thanks to the comment from Dave I will amend my records to reflect the fact that Veronica's surname is not known as stated in the Hain History.

History of the Hain Family, page 5:

It is possible that Geroge Hain, who belonged to the New York settlement, came to the Tulpehocken region after the first group had arrived there. His name first appears (as John George Hohn) in Ulster County, New York, where according to the magazine "Ye Old Ulster" there appears among the church records of the Kocherthal colony the following: "Baptized in Schoharie, June 6 1716, Johann, born February 8, child of John George and Veronica Hohn. Sponsors, Johann Cast and Commmissioner."

Could the Koch surname have come from the "Kocherthal Colony" from above? That is the only thing close to "Koch" that I have been able to find

Does anyone know where the Koch comes from?

The history of the Hain's Church reports that Veronica's family name was unknown: http://www.archive.org/stream/historyofstjohns00kers#page/24/mode/2up/search/veronica

Koch-576 and Koch-553 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, same husband, similar birth and death info. There are some data issues, but I think these are the same person and should be merged.
