About Griebling-McKay Family Genealogy
This family website is about the ancestors and descendants of John Angelo (Ang) Griebling Sr. and 
Frances Leona (Parker) McKay.  The Griebling branch of the family dates to 1791 Ewighausen (Prussia)
Germany, where Johannes Jacobus Griebling, the second great grandfather of Ang and the earliest 
Griebling family member know to date, was born.  The Eulberg family branch has been traced to 1624 
Germany.  Ang's grandfather, Johannes (John), was also born in Ewighausen in 1851, emigrating to 
the United States at the young age of 19 in 1871, began building his life in NYC, eventually moving 
to Denver CO, where he met and married Maria Magdalena "Lena" Flucken, also from Germany, in the 
late 1870s and raised four sons, the eldest of which is John Henry "Harry."  His wife, "Lena" and 
her family arrived in NYC from Germany in 1868 when she was but a young teen of fourteen.  These 
are the grandparents of Ang.  Branches of this family include:  Griebling, Flucken, Eulberg, 
Schneider, Hagus, O’Leary, Raworth, McKay, Parker, Ferguson, Hurley and more.

The earliest known origins of the McKay (Parker) family date to 140 AD Finland and Snaer King of 
Kvenland JOKULSSON5.  Branches of this family include:  Parker, Wolcott, Treat (Trott) and more.  
The Treat branch begins with John Treat (Trott), born in Taunton Manor, Somerset County, England, 
in the area of the ancient ruins of Stonehenge, famous for the facts and mythology of the Druids.  
A distinguished family member was one of the petitions of the 1662 Charter of Connecticut and, 
later, governor when the colony became a state, a family member instrumental in the founding of 
Princeton New Jersey and one of the five founders of Princeton University.  The Parker family stems 
from Abraham, born 1544 in Wiltshire, Sussex England.  Parker is a derivative of the job 
title “Keeper of the Park.”  This family is famous in the history of the United States as one of 
the first founding families of Connecticut Colony arriving in the same decade as the pilgrims at 
Plymouth Massachusetts, settling in Wallingford CT.

Another more recent family member, Ledyard Parker), father of David T. Parker (adopted as McKay) 
Sr., was officially documented in court records, in the Pennsylvania town where he lived, as one on 
a list of “Town Drunks and Lunatics,” was clearly alcoholic and most likely suffered from bipolar 
disorder, which is genetically linked to several members in this family branch.  Ledyard left an 
honorable legacy later in life when he joined the Pennsylvania cavalry at the age of 40, fought in 
the Civil War, dying from wounds in battle within three months and is buried as a national hero at 
City Point National Cemetery in Hopewell, Virginia.
