Yunker family in St. Joseph County (Sturgis) Michigan

Posted: 1188680473000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Yunker, Junker, Juncker, Yonker, Yuncker
I am interested in hearing from anyone who has knowledge of the Yunker family who immigrated to America from Switzerland in 1883--and several appear to have settled as farmers in Sturgis (St. Joseph County) Michigan. They arrived on the Ship France on 12 April 1883. The passenger list shows them as of Swiss origin and having the surnames of either Junker or Juncker. The list shows Anna Juncker age 6, Charles Juncker age 25, Elise Juncker age 11, Jacques (Jacob) Juncker age 22, Jacob Juncker age 80, Jean (John Juncker age 16, Maria Juncker age 20, Nicolas Juncker age 7, Rudolphe Juncker age 8, Susanne Juncker age 60, and Jean (John) Junker age 19. I can see by census records that Jacob, Susanne, Rudolphe, Nicholas, and John are likely to be the ones who settled in Sturgis MI and spelled their names as Yunker, Yonker or Yuncker. I would be interested in anyone connected to any of this family or having any information related to this family--its descendants or ancestors.
