Re: OBAMA BERKHIMER ANCESTRY
Yes Welhelm Berkhimer and Maria Hallman are my 6th great grand parents So we are cousins my line comes from there son Leonard Berkhimer. they arrived here in 1721 they settled here about a hour outside Philadelphia in that year. I am still in the same area I found graves here from Welhelm All the way down to my fathers grave in a 20 mile radias (7 great grand parents) Here The name is spelled on all the grave stones Berkhimer all the way back to Welhelm. But on line here and in Books it is spelled Berkheimer. I know some Berkhimers moved away west, south, etc and there are a whole range of spellings Barkhamer, Berghamer etc. I find it interesting that cousins fought in the Cival War against each other.
Iam glad to meet you. Your COUSIN RICHARD
where are you from?
