Philip Rancke

30 Jan 1734-25 Nov 1815. Born in Erlington. Worked as a farmer and a thresher. See Journal of the Commission, 1757. [This individual's name appears on a page in the 1743-1755 Single Brothers' catalog that seems part of the list of individuals at Christiansbrunn. But nearly all the individuals listed on this page appear in no other lists of individuals at Christiansbrunn. We think it highly likely that this page aims to list single brothers in Bethlehem, not in Christiansbrunn, although the page's placement in the catalog seems to suggest differently. So Ranke probably was not in Christiansbrunn until 1759, when his name appears on another list of people.]
