"The biography of Daniel[1] presents an interesting and active life amongst the earlier Colonial settlers in Eastern Pennsylvania. His mission as preacher amongst the Mennonites gave him charge of the Manatawny district. At what time his charge began is not known; but it is known that he and Jacob Bechtle (now Bechtel) were representatives in the Convention of Quakers held at Germantown in September, 1727.

Daniel Langenecker in the U.S. and Canada, Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, 1500s-1900s Name: Daniel Langenecker Arrival year: 1729-1730 Arrival Place: Pennsylvania Primary Immigrant: Langenecker, Daniel Source Publication Code: 7820 [13]

May 1, 1733, Patent Book A, Vol. 6, p. 174, Philadelphia. John Penn, Thomas Penn et al. conveyed to Daniel Longeneker 230 acres of land on the southeast side of the Schuylkill River, then Philadelphia County, at Mingo Creek, and extending along said river southeasterly to the land now known as the Almshouse Farm at Black Rock. A reference to this grant is recited in deed recorded at Norristown, in Deed Book No. 13, page 260, dated March 30, 1756, in which the heirs of said Daniel, deceased, are the grantors to their brother David.

The time of his death is not known exactly, but it is probable that it occurred in 1756, as his widow, Elizabeth, then renounced her right to administration, and to David, the eldest son, letters issued, with John Bookwalter and Jacob Hoch (now High) sureties, dated October 12th, 1756. To this bond he signed his name in German, David Langenacker, a (diaresis) is soft and pronounced ae (Laengenacker). On the 13th day of November, A. D. 1756," [14]

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Daniel by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Daniel:

Description Most sources including all but one of the sets of Mennonite file cards identify the parents of Daniel and brother, Ulrich, as David Langenegger(M815-YYV) and Magdalena Gerber (LZRB-2B2). However, a 2004 Mennnonite file card for Hans Longenecker/Langenegger identifies the parents of these brothers as Hans Langenegger (KHF5-W6F) and Anna Jenni (KCK3-HW1). These are the parents currently listed on the Find A Grave entry for Daniel. If these are, indeed, the parents, then Daniel's christening would be 7 FEB 1686, Biglen, Bern, Switzerland, making him about 17 years old at the time of his marriage.

That both of these brothers (Ulrich and Daniel) named first sons "David" lends support to David being the grandfather.

Additional primary sources that clarify the parentage would be most useful.

This profile and Longenecker-49 are clearly the same person and these profiles will need to be merged once the discrepancies have been resolved. The primary one being his parentage. It does look like David and Magdalena are likely correct.

Another problem is this profile's claim that Daniel arrived in 1729 citing Rupp. (See footnote #13) But Rupp actually does not report Daniel's arrival in that year. Rather, he appears on a list of settlers in Berks county who signed the oath that year: https://archive.org/details/collectionofupwa00ruppuoft/page/434/mode/2up?q=Langenecker

posted by Dave Rutherford
Like I said no time to research alternative parents but if I recall my previous research correctly, David is correct I truly think David and Magdalena Gerber belong as his parents. It does seem a merge will be in order. I adopted the other profile so that could happen easily. Just can't promise to make it pretty afterwards if someone wants to help there would be appreciated.

Hi. I was doing a clean-up on Longenecker-49 and realized that he is meant to be the same person as Longacre-2.... The problem is there are completely different parents. Shall we do an unmerged match? My only interest is that I was going up Kevin Bacon's line and saw it ended in Switzerland & I'm on the Switzerland project.I also thought the profile was in need of biographical improvement, which I did a little bit from sources already on the profile.... When I saved, it came up that his find a grave was tagged to two people... Longenecker-49 and Longacre -2.
posted by Beth Stephenson
Thanks Beth, on the surface they appear to match but to the fact of different parents and that there were several Daniel's in this family and several Elizabeth Clotz in her family just need to make sure we're not conflating 2 people . I adopted the other profile. Longnecker-49. I don't have any moments hardly to sleep right now much less research, so sorry. I will keep in my in box though and please see if you can figure it out, later we can do something with it. Why don't you go ahead and take the Findagrave off this profile for now as it has the 49s parents!!

Longacre-2 and Longnecker-109 appear to represent the same person because: Hi Deb: I have adopted the profile Longacre-2. I have adjusted the dates of birth, death and locations to match Longnecker-109. As they have the same spouse Elizabeth Clotz-5, and therefore have to be the same Daniel ! As we know their were many, many spelling variations to the last name. You may feel free to edit the profile during the merge to include any of the text or sources you like. I am not married to the profile, I just adopted it. It is part of one of my ancestral lines. Thanks Cousin ! Trish (adopted born Loretta Morrison-4392

I have adopted Longacre-2 and adjusted to the correct dates of birth, death and locations. Daniel on each profile is married to Elizabeth Clotz-5 , they should merge ok now, Deb. Thanks!

Longacre-2 and Longnecker-109 do not represent the same person because: Different birth date and death date. Many Daniels in this family
