Saint Paul's Lutheran Church Old Bethlehem Road Applebachsville PA 18951 215-536-5789 Haycock was formed of territory that may be called the "odds and ends" left after all the surrounding townships had been organized. Early settlers included: John Anderson, Thomas and Patrick McCarty, William Bryan, Isaac Evans, Stokes descended from Thomas son of John, of London, who was born in 1640. A log meeting-house was built for use by the Baptist congregation.

The first petition to become a township was made soon after 1740 and signed by twenty dwellers. They were: Silas McCarty, Joseph Dennis, Griffith Davis, William Bryan, John Stokes, Abraham Gooding, Dennis Honan, Edward Bleaney, John Deane, John Nicholas, James Sloan, Hendrich Henecke, C.H. Steinbach, Jacob Rohr, Martin Scheiff, George Schuman, Balthass Steueber, Stephen Acraman, and John George Desch. 2
