I am looking for parents of Robert Hetrick, b. April 28, 1790 in PA., married Catharine Ellen Billman, d.April 12, 1869. They lived in Upper Allen, Cumberland Co.
Their children: 1.Mary Ann, b. Dec. 20, 1822, d. Oct. 11, 1903, married Augustus H. Stoner. 2.Jamime, b. 1818, d. 1878, married Levi Beelman. 3.George, b. Jan. 29, 1827, d. Aug. 1894 in Canton, Fulton Co., Ill., married Amanda Pollinger in Harrisburg, PA. 4.John, b. 1824, lived in Linn Co., MO. as a farmer and stock-raiser. 5.Elizabeth Jane, b. 1828, d. Jan. 1852, never married. 6.Catharine 7.Caroline and Caroline 2nd
I found in the biography of George that his grandfather was Robert and great grandfather was William who came into this country but have not found proof of this as of this date.
My grandfather was James Campbell Stoner, son of Mary Ann. The strange thing is that Robert Hetrick of York Co. knew a James Campbell in the York Academy where he taught but later moved back to Virginia.It is written that this same Robert was a Scotchman. Lots to be proven.
