From Floyd's History Of Northumberland County:
As previously mentioned, some branches of the family spell the name
Druckenmiller. Of these, Michael Druckenmiller, millwright, of Hereford
township, Berks county, was said to be a descendant of the Charles
Truckenmiller who in 1790 lived in Hereford township. Michael's children
were: Daniel, Enos, Clara, Hannah, Lucy and Elizabeth.
Enos Druckenmiller (as he wrote his name), son of Michael, was born
Dec. 14, 1821, and died March 29, 1899, at Zieglersville in Upper
Milford township, Lehigh Co., Pa., his death being caused by apoplexy.
He is buried in the Lutheran cemetery at that place, and was long an
active worker in the church, in all its departments; serving as elder
and Sunday school teacher. He was a member of the building committee
when the new church was erected. For many years he was director of a
singing school. Mr. Druckenmiller was a prosperous farmer and mechanic
all his life, owning several farms. He was a Democrat in politics, and
served nine years as school director of Hereford township, Berks county.
He married Elizabeth N. Desch, daughter of George and Margerite
(Marsteller) Desh, and they had a large family, namely: Benneville died
of measles and brain fever when twenty-two years old; Rev. Joel settled
about 188O in Michigan, where he serves a charge at Rogers City;
Tilghman married Barbara Frey; Elizabeth married Milton Kleinsmith;
Henry, now of Atlanta, Ga., married Ellen Wagonhorst; David married
Katie Nuss and lives at Sellersville, Pa.; Benjamin D. is a resident of
Kutztown, Pa.; Emma died of diphtheria in her ninth year; Mama married
William Weiss and (second) Hiram Walker; Susanna married Benjamin Brey;
Rosa married Allen W. Sheimer; Sallie married John Sweitzer; George D.
is a Lutheran minister; Maggie married William Shubert; Laura married
Richard Reese; Annie married Allen Snyder.
Rev. George D. Druckenmiller, son of Enos, graduated from
Muhlenberg College in 1894, and then entered Mount Airy Theological
Seminary, from which he was graduated three years later. He was ordained
at Lancaster June 14, 1897, by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania and
adjacent states, and in July of the same year took charge of the
Freeburg parish, in Snyder county, to which he had been called. Three
years later he received a call to the Freemansburg charge, in
Northampton county, in May, 1900, and there he had a very successful
pastorate, during which a house of worship was erected and the
membership greatly increased. On Dec. 1, 1905, he accepted an urgent
call to Nazareth, where a $40,000 church was erected during his
incumbency and 325 new members added to the church roll. He resigned to
accept a unanimous call to Hamburg, where he took charge of St. John's
Lutheran Church Sept. 1, 1910. He has made many friends during his brief
service at that church. Mr. Druckenmiller married Ellen J. Lerch, of

Thank you Heather.
The first correction that I'd like to make concerns the Mechlin/Mechling connection to Michael Druckenmiller. In an old message to a fellow researcher, I erroneously stated that Michael Truckenmiller and Philip Mechlin served in the same military unit in the American Revolution. What I meant to say was that Philip Machlin and Michael's father George Truckenmiller/Druckenmiller served in the same military unit in the American Revolution, and not Michael who wasn't yet born. Michael was my GGG grandfather and George was my GGGG grandfather. I am still trying to make the connection between Michael Druckenmiller's wife (whose last name is shown truncated in early records as as Mech---) and the Mechling family who lived only a few miles from Sebastian Truckenmiller. I've heard that there are records which show Elizabeth's full last name but I have not yet located one.
Attached are two files; one is the complete roster and the second is an edited and highlighted version containing just the relevant information. Your "Jacob" was in the 5th Company, 5th Class and my "George" was in the 5th Company, 8th Class, of the 1st Battalion of the Northampton County Militia, serving during the time period 1 Nov 1781 - 1 Jan 1782. The Sebastian shown is more than likely Sebastian Jr.
The second correction that I'd like to make concerns the family line of Daniel Druckenmiller, son of Michael. Under the area where you have:
"Notes - Not my research:Marriage of Johann George Truckenmiller & Susanna was Nov.21,1769. etc,.... Marriage of Michael Druckenmiller & Elizabeth was abt. 1807. Their children were Daniel Druckenmiller b.Nov.21,1825."
This section associates the wrong Daniel Druckenmiller and should probably be deleted from the Michael Druckenmiller connection to avoid future confusion. The correct Daniel was born in 1819 as you state in your research. This correct Daniel is buried with his wife Catherine and several of their children in the Salem Evangelical Cemetery in Seisholtzville, Berks County (http://www.findagrave.com/
cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid= 54255976). This cemetery, located at 8031 Salem Bile Church Road, is just about a mile from St. Peter's Union Church Cemetery, Upper Milford, Lehigh, PA, where Daniel's father Michael, mother Elizabeth and sister Lydia are buried and only two tenths of a mile down the street from where Sebastian and Catharina are buried (approximate address is 7687 St. Peters Road, Macungie 18062).
I appreciate the chance to clear up the two nagging errors that I inadvertently created. I will try to be more careful and less speculative in the future.
Have a Merry Christmas!
