      My husband is a descendant of John Louis/Lewis Aukamp (1820- 1904) and Maria Louisa East (1821-1889). My research in Lancaster County, PA has shown:

      .John Lewis Aukamp petitioned for naturalization in 1852. He stated that he came into the U.S. in the year 1834, at the age of 14 years, and was a native of Prussia (Germany).

      .Henry Augustus Aukamp, also from Prussia, petitioned for naturalization in 1848, however, John Lewis was the older of the two.

      .They are quite possibly brothers. I have not found the names of their parents.

      .John Lewis was a confectioner (candy maker) in Lancaster, PA (and probably also lived in Reading, PA, where some of his 14 children were born). Sometime after the Civil War, he owned a 30 acre farm in Providence Township, Lancaster County.

      .Henry Augustus was a house carpenter, lived in Lancaster, PA, and was married to Elizabeth (who might be a sister of Maria Louisa East). They had at least 7 children.

      .It gets confusing from here, because several children of these two couples had the same names and were close in age. Both Aukamp couples had a Daniel, an Elizabeth, a Mary L., a George, and a Henry/Harry Augustus.

      .My husband's Aukamp line descends through "Lewis" and "Louisa"'s 11th child, Anna M. Aukamp (1862-1949), who married George H. Smith; but, he is also related through their 13th child, George McClellan Aukamp (1864-1967), who married Anna Catharine Smith, George H. Smith's sister.

      I hope this will help those of you looking for Aukamp ancestors.
