Johann Jacob Heydrich (Hedrick) and the problems he creates. 1. There were two Jacobs one a son of Peter and one a son of Georg. 2. They were both born in Oberalben, Pfalz, Germany. 3. The age difference is two years Peter’s son born 1736 and Georg’s son 1738. 4. They both moved to VA. 5. Jacob son of Peter lived in Lancaster County. Jacob son of Georg lived in York County.
Problems 1. Is Jacob son of Peter really named Jacob or is his name Henry? 2. Did Peter name one son Johann Henry and later with the second wife name a son John Henry? 3. Who is Barbara Seyler’s father-in-law?
