I am a descendant of Johan Phillip Heu through his son John Adam.With some of us researching John Adam and his children information has come to light making it impossible for George who married Lydia Keiffer to be John Adam's son.In addition, I have found information that leads me to believe George who married Susanna Stump to actually be the son of John Adam and not Daniel J Hoy as originally thought.
John Adam's children are Philip b 1792 PA, Daniel b 1794 PA, Barbara b 1795 KY, George b abt 1798-1799 KY, Adam b 1802 Clermont Co., OH, Margaretha b 1797 Ky or 1804 Clermont Co. ,OH, David Andrew b 1808 Clermont Co., OH, Peter b 1816 Fairfield Co., OH and Andrew b 1818 Fairfield Co., OH
George who married Lydia Keiffer was born 1802 Northumberland Co., PA.He was married in PA and his first two children were born there.John Adam's son Adam was b 1802 in Clermont Co., OH making impossible for George who married Lydia Keiffer to be son of John Adam.
George who married Susanna Stump, I believe is the true son of John Adam Hoy and Barbara Unknown.The 1860, 1870 and 1880 census give him born in KY, not PA as most researchers have him.All three census records can't be wrong.His age and birth place fit to be son of John Adam. Then he married Susanna Stump who belongs to the Stump family that many of John Adam's family married into.There were Stump families living in Clermont Co., OH at the time John Adam lived there.Daniel J's family all went to Fairfield Co., OH except for George who married Susanna Stump.He went to Hancock Co., OH where Philip son of John Adam lived.This makes sense if George m Susanna Stump is actually John Adam's son, since Philip who lived in Hancock Co., OH would be his true brother.
John Adam's son Adam had a son Adam J who married his cousin, Elizabeth "Eliza" Lovina Burnett.Eliza is daughter of Sarah Hoy, and grandaughter of George Hoy and Susannah Stump.If George m Susanna is son of John Adam that would make Adam J and Eliza Burnett cousins.
So, what happened to George, the real son of Daniel J?I don't have a clue.Maybe he died young and left no info?I'm not sure where a son George of Daniel J's is named in any documentation. George who married Lydia Keiffer can't be the son of Daniel J.Daniel's daughter Catherine was b 1802, the same year as George who married Lydia.Also Daniel and his family moved to OH in 1806.George would have been 2 years of age at the time of this move, but he was in PA to marry Lydia and have his first two children there.He also left PA for NY where some of his children were.What would make him move to NY and not to OH as the rest of the Hoy's did?Who could his parents possibly be?Also George who married Lydia ended up in Fairfield Co., OH and was associated with the Hoy Glick Church there.It would seem there has to be some connection with him and the Hoy's there, but how?
