Tunker or Dunker baptism

a Dunker by religion

originated in 1708 near the village of Schwarzenau, Germany, along the Eder River.
They originally called themselves Neue Täufer (New Baptists) in order to better distinguish themselves from older Anabaptist groups, such as the Mennonites and the Amish.

We use the label Schwarzenau Brethren to designate this original body, since there have been a number of Brethren Groups that formed through splits and sub-movements over the centuries.
Typical of the derisive labeling experience of many religious groups, they were called Dunkers by outsiders because they
fully immersed or “dunked” their baptismal candidates in nearby streams, three complete dunkings;
a particular method of baptism that completely distinguished them from the “sprinkling” Lutherans and Methodists, their kindred “pouring” Mennonites, and even the single dunk Baptists.

For this reason, numerous Brethren congregations are still known by the body of water where these baptisms or dunkings took place: Beaver Creek, Yellow Creek, Lost Creek, Marsh Creek, Pike Run, Spring Run, Trout Run, Blue River, Eel River, West Eel River, Little River, Valley River, Falling Springs, Roaring Springs, or Three Springs.

Brethren stem from German Pietism (a religion of the heart) of the Eighteenth century and the Anabaptist (re-baptizers) movement of a previous century.

This latter movement sought to reform the European State-Church system by emphasizing the process of regeneration whereby adult believers accept entrance into the faith through a mature decision, that stresses personal awareness of eternal consequences and the enlightened understanding that Christ is the answer to the problem of human sinfulness."

The information about the Dunker faith was taken from Dunker Church : Who are the Dunkers?

Pennsylvania Dutch dunke, from Middle High German dunken, from Old High German dunkōn.

Surnames from leather trades

Surnames Derived from English Occupations: "Our family did not consciously choose our family names. Hereditary surnames came into being primarily because the eternal tax collectors needed a way to identify people.

Almost all of our surnames were in existence before the beginning of the 15th Century and most of our names were placidly accepted as those our ancestors were known by in the village where they lived."

The earliest English recording of a family name deriving from this occupation is Simon le Sadeler in 1288. Another spelling was Sadelare. The Old English word was sadol, which meant saddle.

Help out in a crisis - with ICE:
"A Cambridge-based paramedic has launched a national campaign with Vodafone to encourage people to store emergency contact details in their mobile phones.

Bob Brotchie, a clinical team leader for the East Anglian Ambulance NHS Trust, hatched the plan last year after struggling to get contact details from shocked or injured patients.

By entering the acronym ICE - for In Case of Emergency - into the mobile's phone book, users can log the name and number of someone who should be contacted in an emergency.

The idea follows research carried out by Vodafone that shows more than 75 per cent of people carry no details of who they would like telephoned following a serious accident. "


He said the idea was for the benefit of loved ones as well as the patient.

“Research suggests people recover quicker from the psychological effects of their loved one being hurt if they are involved at an earlier stage and they can reach them quickly," he added.

He said he hoped mobile phone companies would now build the ICE contact into future models, adding: "It's not a difficult thing to do. As many people say they carry mobile phones in case of an emergency, it seems natural this information should be kept there." >
