I would love to hear from you, Linda, and my email is email@example.com
My understanding is that Henry Gicker/Giger/Gucker was the first of the line in Berns Twp; that he was born about 1724 in Elsoff, Westphalia and died in Berns Twp. in 1809? (If you have HIS will, I would love to have a copy! also his burial record?) He married Maria Margaretha Freymeyer on 16 August 1747 at Berns Ref. Church (do you have a copy of record?!) (She has a fascinating line as well - are you aware of it?)
- I am descended from his son, Henry, born 1767 in Berns Twp. and died 5 January 1835 in Hemlock Twp., Columbia (now Montour) Co. (Would you have his baptismal record?) He married Mary Magdalena Holl on 19 March 1793 in the Schwarzwald Church, Berks Co. It is his will that I have a copy of and would be happy to send you.
- My last Giger/Gicker is Henry's daughter, Susannah, who married Peter Heimbach. She was bap. 24-May-1801 @ St. John's (Hain's) Ref Ch,, Lower Heidelberg Tp, Berks Co, PA (would you have a copy of this?); married Peter about 1818 (any hope of a record?!) and died 3 May 1881 in Eckford, Calhoun Co., Michigan.
- Looking forward to hearing from you. What is your line? Beverley
