Johannes Heinrich Heydt
I am trying to find descendants of Johannes Heinrich Heydt who lived in Armsheim, Rheinhessen, Germany during the 1730s. He left Armsheim with my 4th great grandfather Johann Michael Axer in June 1742 and came to America on the Ship Robert & Alice, arriving in Philadelphia on Sept. 24, 1742. Johann Michael Axer, called "Michael", settled first in what is now Tulpehocken township, Berks Co., PA, and married in 1746 to Maria Barbara Spies. They later settled in southwestern VA and the name is now spelled "Auxier."
