From "Germanna History", notes:
When the family of Zacharias Blankenbaker was listed in the Baptismal Register down at the church, his two step daughters were not given. These girls interacted with Zacharias' children at the baptisms of all of the children of Alcy. In this regard it is impossible to tell there was any difference in their parentage.
Alcy's two daughters, POSSIBLY surnamed Finks, were Elizabeth, who married Peter Broyles, and Mary Magdalena, who married Henry Wayman.
Incidentally, Zacharias was born in 1715, in Germany, and if he was not married until about 1749, then he was 34 years old. For this reason, I have wondered if there were an earlier marriage, but there is no evidence of children. Then, again, the Blankenbaker men were shy and may it have taken him that long to learn how to speak to a woman. (11 Jul 02)
