 Includes NotesNotes for Johann Peter Sr. Hedrick(Heydrich):
Married: 18 MAR 1730 in Tai-Lichtenberg, Rhineland Pfalz, Germany

Sometime between 1737 and 1738 Peter and "Milla" and their four children traveled north on the Rhine River and in Rotterdam, Netherlands, boarded the ship "Robert and Alice". On September 11, 1738, the family landed in Philadelphia. Their last port in Europe was Dover, England. The ship carried 320 passengers and was commanded by Master Walter Goodman.** Shortly after their arrival, the family located in East Hanover Twp., (near the Swatara Gap in the Blue Mountains) in Lancaster Co., (later Lebanon Co.) in circa 1750. This was during the French and Indian War. His house was made of block and was used by friends and neighbors as a place of protection from the indians. The building was designed with "musket" slots which enabled the occupants to fire their weapons without exposure to the enemy. At the beginning of the American Revolution, Peter demonstrated his loyality by organizing, training, and outfitting a company of men to be attached to Col. Timothy Green's 11th Battalion (Flying Camp) of Lancaster Co., PA. Peter was commissioned a Lt. Col and received 60 stands of arms (180 total) as listed on a service record dated September 9, 1776. In March 1789, Letters of Administration in the estate of Peter Hedrick were granted to Catherine Hetrick and Christopher Enterline. A notation in the letter states that the estate was not sufficient to warrant a court probate. It appears that he deeded the land in order to leave no estate. In the list of "Revolutionary War Soldiers in Lebanon Co., PA" a Lt Col Peter Hedrich is listed as buried in the family burial plot near Swatara Gap.

Lt. Col. Johann Peter Heydrich
Transcribed by: Diann Sadler 4/10/97 Source : Book -" The Hedrick Family" Fifth revised edition 1996 Editors: Charles Fisher Ward Jr and Sr.
Johann Peter Heyderich/Heydrich Sr. came with his family to America on the ship "Robert & Alice" arriving at the port of Philadelphia on Sept. 11, 1738. He and his family settled in Eat Hanover Township, Lancaster Co. PA. near the Swatara Gap in the Blue Mountains. Here Peter built a block house for his family, which was to be used by friends and neighbors as protection. This was before the beginning of the French and Indian War 1754-1763. There is no doubt that Peter had experienced military training before coming to American for he was quick to organize and train a local guard. He held the rank of Captain, and his home was to become "Fort Swatara."
At the beginning of the Revolutionary War, Peter Sr. again demonstrated his loyalty by organizing, training, and outfitting a company of men to be attached to Colonel Green's Battalion (Flying Camp) of Lancaster Co. PA. Peter was commissioned as Lt. colonel and received 60 stands of arms (180) as shown on Service record dated Sept. 9, 1776. Lt. Col.
