Re: Eicherts in Harmony, PA
Yes, Linda,These are the children of John Adam and Sarah Eichert:Merne Lucille who died when about 2 years old, John who married Theresa, Howard who married Louise and lived in Erie Pa, Frank who died young and was the "black sheep" of the family, Sadie who married David Sharrer and had 2 sons- Jack and Kimber both now deceased.Jack had a son Johnny and a daughter.
Mame Eichert married Clarence SMith and they had 2 daughters.
The SMith daughters were Merne SMith Gaal Beckwith who died in 2002 and Marion SMith Hartman who died in 2000.Her husband Sam died in 2003.
I communicated the daughter of Merne SMith Gaal - Lorraine Gaal Landefeld.She is a concert pianist who with her husband Paul and two sons,Mark and John, direct and teach at the Suzuki Institute in Dallas Tx.
Now , my data on these folks goes back to Adam Eichert and his wife Caroline DOctor who were the parents of my paternal grandmother Elizabeth Eve EIchert Schilling.
This grandmother of mine was sister to John Adam EIchert.They also had a sister Sarah Magdalene who married John George Ulrich from Ellwood City.
My grandmother says that she had a twin brother who died at birth.ALso there was a sister named ELizabeth who was one of another set of twin siblings who died at birth or shortly after.In addition to these children there was a single son WIlliam who died at around 4 years.I have photos of their burial sites.
I would love to have more information on these people but am at an impasse.Hopefully you can enlighten me a little.Send address and e address and I can send some photos.Susan Schilling Staff
