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
