William Killian Mark1

b. circa 1719, d. October 1792
ChartsAncestry of David Kipp Melat
     William Killian Mark was born circa 1719 (an unknown value) in Switzerland.2 He married Anna Maria (?)3 He married Catherine (?) by 1777.1 He died in October 1792 in East Hanover Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.1
     
Research Note, 27 August 2007:

According to researcher Steve Zimmerman, Killian was born 22 November 1719 in Embrach, Canton Zurich, Switzerland, the son of Hans Heinrich Merck and Elsbeth Wettstein. While it can be assumed that this information is from a baptismal record in Embrach, no sources are given. Further, while there is additional information concerning both the ancestry and descendants of Killiam Merch, there are several obvious inconsistencies in Mr. Zimmerman's report, so no further imformation on Killian's ancestry will be included in this database at this time.4
     William Killian Mark immigrated in May 1735 to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on the ship "Mercury."2 He signed a warrant for one hundred acres in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, on 21 September 1749.5
