I realize I'm getting into the middle of this conversation, so you may tell me to butt out if you wish :-), but I am somewhat familiar with Conrad Acord/Eckert. He lived in the Conewago area of York County, PA, near the present town of Hanover. According to Rev. Fred Weiser as quoted in "Digges Choice Land Tracts 1724-1800" by Jan Bankert, Picton Press, ME, 1996, pp.115-116,
Rev. Johann Casper Stoever performed a missionary trip through Conewago (PA) andMonocacy (MD)in May 1735. One of those he baptized was "Johannes Eckert, son of Cunradt Eckert, b. 2 May 1734, bp. 22 May 1735, sp. Peter Mittelkauff."
May I also cover Bankert's 'Digges Choice Tract #7' in his book (ibid.): "John Digges, Conewago, Baltimore Co, MD, Gentleman, to Conrad ACORD, Conewago, Baltimore Co, MD, farmer, 15 Nov 1749; 70 acres, 15 Pounds.L. (YCLR 2F-387). Charles Carroll to Conrad ECKERT, 18 Apr 1750; rights to 70 acres, no consideration stated. [MD.Prov.LR EI#9-58]. Conrad Eckert and Dorety, to JOHN ECKERT, JR., SON, 10 Dec 1759; 70 acres-'assigned over to John Eckert Jr. for and in consideration that the said John Eckert shall and will perform the condition made 2 Dec 1759 with the above Conrad Eckert Sr.'. [YCLR 2F-390]."
There are other references in Bankert's book to the Acord/Eckert's, but I thought these might be pertinent and of use.
Also, the 1762 Tax List for Germany Twp, York (now Adams) Co, PA, shows "ACORT, Conrad; John; Michael." The book "PA in 1780 (Taxes)" by John and Diane Stemmons, self-pub, Salt Lake City, 1978, shows a Conrad Eckert and Jno. Eckert in Heidelberg Twp, Berks Co, PA; and Conrad Eckert and John Eckert in Heidelberg Twp, York Co, PA, along with several others which I shall not list. So it appears there were at least two Conrad's and two John's all living at the same time, but in different counties, perhaps the younger ones migrating to the west in Berks County where there was more land available.
What's MY interest? I research the Henry SELLEN family. He also settled in the Conewago region in 1735, so I am always looking for marriages of children to neighbors. I'd welcome any replies. Dick
