Hi, Eric Zurcher and the whole gang

Some Amish/COB connections with those surnames in my data are:

Rebecca ZUCK/ZOOK (Amish) 1824-1852, m Isaac R. DEPPEN (COB)
Emma SUMMERS m William ROYER 1849-1930 (his second marriage)
Albagena SUMMERS m William ROYER 1849-1930 (his third marriage)
Benjamin Franklin ZUCK 1856-aft 1914, m Emma K. MILLER (denom.?)
Christian ZUCK 1821-1897, m Susanna LEFEVRE. He changed his name from
ZOOK to distinguish his family from the Amish ZOOKs.
Jacob ZOOK abt 1784-1863, m Elizabeth HOSTETLER. He was born Amish but
his marriage is recorded in the Trinity Lutheran Church, Lancaster, PA.

Many KINGs and KURTZs were once Amish also.
