Re: BERKHIMER, HALLMAN, KREGER ,RUBICUM,FLECK, WILLETT, POSEY, CLINE, DOYLE
Hi Michael was the son of Wilhelm Berkhimer and Maria Salome HALLMAN Berkhimer. He had Brothers fredrick and Henry wich moved to Virginia after the revolutionary war Leonard, Jacob, George, Valintine and Sisters Elizebeth, Maria, Cathrinia and parents stayed here in Montgomery County PA.
Michael or Michaels son Michael moved to Bedford in the late 1700s I have nothing more on him. But the rest of the family that didnt go to Virginia and or Michael in Bedford, ALL lived and died here in Montgomery Co. PA. The Berkhimers that moved to Virginia spell the name Barkhamer and yr. Michael spelled it Berkheimer But everyone else here spells it Berkhimer. and the first Berkhimers HERE IN 1720 spelled it PIRCKHEIMER So go figure lol
Do you have any dates on him?
I live in the Same area where the Berkhimers started out at, in the Country in 1720. I FOUND all the graves starting with my fathers grave back to his parents then his parents and so on 10 generations of berkhimer grandparents back to 1725, all in a 15 mile area of where I live now. THEY ALL HAVE GRAVE STONES STILL, AND THEY ARE ALL SPELLED BERKHIMER.
I have INFO. on Berkhimers here in Montgomery Co PA and I have INFO ON Michaels grandparents IN Germany andfamily back to 1300
I hope this helps you. It must be the same BERKHIMERS BECAUSE ALL THE Brothers names are the same. Id love to know where you fit in to the Berkhimers as I also have relatives here by the name of KING. You know I started my search in 2005 and in finding all the Berkhimer men it was then I relized I had to look up there wifes families LAST NAMES also as the are ANCESTERS AND cousins too. So I HAD THE LIST OF 10 OTHER FAMLIES i HAD TOO LOOK UP.lET ME KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW ON THE BERKHIMERS
