I am searching for more branches of the family of Peter HECKER. He was born in Mainz, Germany in 1855. He married Matilda Erickson in1888 in New York City. They had 11 children and lived most of their lives in the New York City area. Peter had a brother, Henry Hecker, who seems to have moved to the state of California. It would be wonderful to find other branches of our family!I am also searching for the names HORGAN, KOCH, and ERICSON. Just recently I discovered that my husband's gggrandfather was a Methodist minister/circuit rider in southwestern Indiana befor the Civil War. His name was John FICKEN. He married Ann TAUCHEN and had three children. Their daughter Frances married Jacob Frederick BECHTLE and had four daughters. Anna Emilie BECHTLE (aka Amelia) married Joseph Adam MEYER in 1902. If anyone has any knowledge about any of these people, I would appreciate hearing about it and sharing the informaation I have.
