Pennypacker/Umstead Marriages

Although this information comes from reasonably accurate sources,
it is subject to later or better information and as always,
the reader's own verification.

Hendrick/Heinrich Pannebecker
      +Eva Umstat (daughter of Hans Peter) born about 1680, died 27 November 1739
      Married 14 October 1699 in Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania
NEW INFO March 2008: Hendrick's date of arrival, the marriage date, Eve's date of death, and birthdates of their children are listed in "Pennypacker Express" March-April 2008, which shows info handwritten by Hendrick Pannebecker in DE WERKEN van den HOOG VERLICHTEN JACOB BRIL (THE WORKS OF JACOB BRIL), published in Dutch in Amsterdam by Barent Visser, 1705. The birth dates of the children (last 1725) and her date of death would indicate that Eve was probably born earlier than previously thought, perhaps around 1680.

Pennypacker Links

Pannebecker/Pennypacker-UM genealogy beginning with Eve Umstat who married Heinrich Pannebacker is being handled by descendants of the Pennypacker family.  PLEASE CONTACT BRUCE PENNYPACKER at if you descend from Heinrich and Eve.  You'll want to remain in contact with the site for updates on Eve's father Hans Peter and his father Nicholas though.

If you are ever in Pennsylvania, take time to go visit the lovely Pennypacker Mills.
This historic house (Washington really slept here!) is well worth a visit.
