Bibliography

Heinrich Funck (d. 1760), a European Mennonite settler who located along the Indian Creek in what is now Franconia Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, about 30 miles (50 km) north of Philadelphia. He married Anne, daughter of immigrant Christian Meyer and they became the parents of ten children, including Preacher Henry Funck and Bishop Christian Funk (1731-1811), the latter being the founder of the Funkites, who withdrew from the Franconia Conference in 1778 because they favored recognizing the independence of the American Colonies before the end of the Revolutionary War. Funck was a farmer, miller, and bishop. He wrote two books, Ein Spiegel der Tauffe (Mirror of Baptism) in 1744, and Eine Restitution, Oder eine Erklaerung einiger Haupt-puncten des Gesetzes (Restitution, or an Explanation of Several Principal Points of the Law), the latter being left as an unpublished manuscript at his death in 1760; his children arranged for its publication in 1763. Funck collaborated in sponsoring the publication of the 1748 German Martyrs' Mirror, and he and Dielman Kolb read the proofs page by page as they came off the Ephrata presses. Funck was the most important writer among the Mennonites in Colonial America. His grave is lost, but it is known that he was intimately associated with both the Salford and Franconia congregations of the Franconia Conference - https://gameo.org/index.php?title=Funck,_Heinrich_(d._1760)

  • Page information based upon 1) original research of Daniel W. Bly and published in his From The Rhine to The Shanendoah, Gateway Press, Inc., Baltimore, MD 21202, vol I. (1993), vol II. (1996)*; research of 2) Karen Kellogg Stephen of Mehoopany,PA., 3) Christine Stephens of Ft. Thomas,KY and 4) Mike Judd.

The origins of the Funk family have been well researched and articulated by Mr. Bly. I borrow shamelessly from him; please be aware that any and all errors be they ommission or commission are my own responsibility. This lineage is believed to have been involved in the early Anabaptist movement in late 16th century Switzerland. Specifically Jacob Funk and his wife Anna Naff were born in Ober Mettmenstetten in the Knonau District of Canton Zurich about1575. Later generations moved to Germany and the region known as the Palatinate where they are well documented in Mennonite historical documents. Their movement can be seen as a result both of their persecution by authorities for their religious beliefs as well as their religious outreach activities. Heinrich Funk (abt 1662) was the first immigrant to the present USA in 1717 having left Bonfeld in Baden and settled with other family members in Strasburg Township, Pennsylvania. Later generations settled in Virginia and then Washinton Co, Kentucky

1760 Died at Indian Creek, Franconia Twp, Montgomery, PA

1760 After the death of Funk which occurred in 1760, the executors John and Christian Funk, sold this tract in 1761 to Jacob Bear, a son-in-law of Henry Funk, who sold in 1763 to John Yellis, of Towamencin township. Funk was never naturalized and Bear also refused to be naturalized. He therefore procured a patent and then sold it the same year to George Kriebel, of Upper Milford who sold it to Daniel Rosenberger in 1769.

Henry built the first mill on Indian Creek. He was well educated for the time and became a Bishop in the Moravian Church
