Neikirk - Newkirk - Nikirk and Related Families, Volume Two Being an Account of the Descendants of Johann Heinrick Neukirch, born c.1708 in Germany - William Neal Hurley, Jr. . Research over nearly thirty years indicates that the vast majority of Americans bearing the subject family name, in any one of the more than twenty identified spellings, are descended from either Johann Heinrick Neukirch (born c.1708 in Germany) or Matheuse Cornelissen Van Nieuwkercke (born c.1600 in Holland), whose descendants are the subject of Volume One in this series. This study attempts to combine into one source information from all the known reports, newsletters, and manuscripts that could be found in various public and private libraries, together with public records in courthouses and archives, and presents what is believed to be the most comprehensive study yet of this important family, with numerous pieces of information previously unavailable. As this book is presented in an easy-to-read narrative style, there is no need to wander through a complex numbering system. Divided into sixteen chapters, this volume contains: photographs; illustrations; wills; inventories of estates; a bibliography; and a complete, every name index with birth dates for quick identification of family members with the same name.
