From Hebron Lutheran Church Records, Hampshire County VA (now WV) Samuel Hickel and Elizabeth, daughter, JEREDA, b. 13 Feb. 1798, bapt. 28 July 1799, godparents, Jacoband Elizabeth Huber. These records are in German and since German script is so different, many people take a stab and guessing what the name is -thus someone came up with Jeremiah--but the family record in the pension file also gives it as Jereda- Jeretha would be a perfectly good English rendition because the "th" in English is often pronounced like a "d" in German and vice versa. Elizabeth, was the daughter of Ulrich Huber, who was probably a brother of Jacob Huber.
