I'm posting your query on the Ger-Poland-Volhynia Listserv.  Someone living
in Ontario may be able to help you further.

I have been researching the Koch  for fifteen years& haven't been able  to
find any information other then they came from Prussia to Canada about 1852
& they where Lutheran.They settled in Hamilton Ontario for about five years
where their daughter Charlotte married William Hibbard in 1859. the family
then moved to Morrison twp. Muskoka Ontario.
In the area other German families had settled around the same time I have
found no records connecting these families,Steinart  Bonar,Leham,Bentz,
Bentzinger, Stotts,Vise, Koch, Everback,Sehaver
If any connect it might be Steinart for Hannah's maiden name was ( Stone)
Charlotte's marriage certificate & Michael was Cook .
I am now have ask for help in finding the origin of this family .
Michael Koch  1799 Prussia
Hannah  about  1810 Prussia
Charlotte           1839 Prussia
Charles              1838 Prussia
William               1840 Prussia
Joseph                1852 Prussia.
They all died in Canada. On Charles death certificate it states he was in
Canada 60 years.he died in Jan 7 1921.
Can any one help in suggesting on what records I should look for I have
tried the regular sources.
