I felt I owe the list a follow up to my question.
"Lauck's Mennonite Church," is cited by Keith A. Dull, in "Early German
Settlers of York County, Pennsylvania," 2000 ed., and he references a number of
baptisms at "Lauck's Mennonite Church," for the Sprenckel (Manchester Twp)
and Strickler families (Hellam Twp) in York County, probably others. These
appear to be infant baptisms.
I've spoke with:
- the Librarian at the Historical Library, Eastern Mennonite University.
- the Archivist at the EMU Archives.
- a Historian at the Lancaster PA Mennonite Historical Society,
- a Historian at the York County Heritage Trust (Historical Society),
- And the editors of the "Mennonite Family History," Magazine.
None of them have heard of this congregation or Minister, and I have not
been able to contact Keith A. Dull. He does not indicate in his sources the
original location of the record he is citing.
So, I still don't have an answer, other than I know where the records are
not found, and this still leaves me wondering what the original source is.
