Eicherts in PA
I am pleased that the Eichert name has been added to Genealogy Forum.I learned pretty much info since I first requested that this name be posted, hopefully what I have learned will be of some help to others!
My GGG Grandfather was Joseph Henry Eichert (abt 1761-1846)..I believe he came to America from Germany in 1805 (into Phila), along withhis brother John Henry Eichert.These two names are listed in the logs of arrivals as "Joost Heinrich Eichert" and Johann Heinrich Eichert.They married twin sisters, Catherine and Elizabeth Heckler, both of Montgomery County, PA, and they all moved to Schuylkill County, PA, bought land, and settled there.
Joseph and Catherine had two children, a daughter who died at age 13, and a son JosephEichert,(10/17/1817-5/18/1905). The younger Joseph married Magdalena Brown (1/3/1824-3/13/1913) and they lived in Washington Twp, Schuylkill County, PA. They are both buried near DeTurksville,PA. They had at least one child, a daughter, Magdalena (Mollie) Eichert (1858-1954).
Mollie married John Fisher (1860-1910), they had 8 children, one of which was my grandfather, Gordon Amos Fisher (1900-1977).
John Eichert (who married Elizabeth Heckler), to the best of my knowledge, had no children.I am not sure where they are buried.
If anyone has any further info on the Eicherts, such as any info on Joseph and John before their arrival in America, it would be appreciated!Thanks!
