I don't know what spelling Wilma uses for the Heckert family, but starting at the oldest, Michael, Johannes and Casper I use the Heckardt spelling. Then with Jonas I use the Heckert/d. And Hanna is Heckerd.

BookChronicles of Pennsylvania from the English Revolution to the Peace of AIX-LA-CHAPELLE 1688-1748, Vol. 2 by Charles P. Keith – Books for Libraries Press, Freeport, New York, Pages 538-541.  Bk3391

 

Queen Anne of England had sent a large group of Palatinates to New York to furnish the English with naval stores. In return each family was to receive money and 40 acres of land on the Schoharie Creek in New York.

They arrived in New York during May to July of 1710 and the most were placed on Robert Livingston’s Manor on the Hudson River. Seven hundred of these people moved to the Schoharie in 1712 but were dissatisfied.

Lt Gov Keith of Pennsylvania invited these folks to move to vacant land in Pennsylvania. Hans Lawyer and four others traveled to Pennsylvania to select the land. Keith was attending the treaty of 1722 in Albany, New York when he had a meeting with George Haine [p 539] and another Palantinate and reported to those who sent them his [Keith’s] encouragement for 40 or 50 families to come.

The Palantines [33 families] cut a road from the Schoharie [in New York] to the Susquehanna [in Pennsylvania] and built canoes and rafts. In the Spring of 1723 the movement began down the North Branch and down the Main Susquehanna, to the mouth of the Swatara, [where present-day Middletown, South of Harrisburg, is located] up that creek, and across land to the Tulpehocken region. [Tulpehocken Township, Berks Co, Pennsylvania].

A petition [nd] drawn up by Keith purporting to come from 33 families who had arrived the year before, said they had been permitted by Governor Keith to settle on the Tulpahaca Creek [Tulpehocken] [p. 540]
