Michael Koch (Cook) was one of the Early Settlers of Germanna Colony
Information on Michael Cook
From "Germanna History Notes":
In the German church records for Schwaigern, we find that Maria Barbara Reiner married Johann Michael Koch in 1716. Michael Koch (Cook) was an immigrant to Virginia in 1717. So, there was a Reiner presence in Virginia from the time of the Second Germanna Colony. Then 33 years later, Mary Barbara Reiner's brother Johann Dieterich Reiner, with his family, immigrated to Virginia. There must have been communication between the brother and sister.
