I am trying to chase down an Eckhard(t?) relative.
Mary Eckhard m. Daniel Lewis Harten.I know nothing about them except that they produced a child in 1892, and that child was married in 1913 in Altoona to a native Altoona girl, A Dibert.
Based on that, the Altoona area of PA is the first place I'm going to try and find them.
I know some or the Eckhardts in this time period were beginning to drop the T, so I thought I'd take a shot in this forum.
I found this woman listed in a Harten family bible.When perusing 1880 census records, I noticed that there are several EckhardT families in Blair Co. that year, but not a single Eckhard family.I wondered if it were possible that the name had been misspelled in the faimily bible, or maybe the family name was in transition, and she could be found as an Eckhardt.
