   1751- Again Michael Binckle and wife Maria Juliana are mentioned in the records of Muddy Creek Reformed Church, East Cocalico Twp, Lancaster County, PA. (Again we need to find this record.)
   1752- 1752 was the year Berks Co. was formed from parts of Bucks, Lancaster & Philadelphia Co.'s. The county seat became Reading, PA. Before that time Cocalico Twp, was in Lancaster Co. and that county seat was the town of Lancaster.

   1772- Same as above.
   1775- On 23 March 1775 Michael is mentioned in a land transaction made by Henry Binkley of Berks County, PA.

It is said that Heinrich Binkley purchased his land in 1771 from Ludwig Schweitzer. See more under Heinrich Binkleys.

   It appears that Hans Michael Binkley's land was lying in both, Cocalico Twp, Lancaster Co, PA and Heidleberg Twp, Berks Co, PA Seek a will and land records in both places.
   1776- Again we have unclear records: "There were several Binkley families living in the vicinity of the Berks/Lancaster County line during the Rev.
