Re: John (Johannes) Spyker (Spycker) 1737

Unfortunately, with all of the Spyker & Spycker names I have accumulated information on, have not come across any Speichers or Spichers.
The Spykers are descended from Johannes Spycker and the Speichers from Ulrich Speicher. Both of whom landed in Philadelphia a month apart, on different ships, in 1737.
Ironically, they also settled near each other in Berks County (then Lancaster County).So far, neither family has been able to come up with a conclusive link between the two families.
Suggest you try contacting Ellwyn Spiker who participates in the Spiker forum.I think he has done work on the Speichers.
Sorry I can'be be of more help.
