Sorry I didn't give the name of the publication re Elizabeth Huckleberry m. to Mr. Barrickman. It is:

"History and Genealogy of the Epler, Oldwiler, Huckleberry, Carr and Ewing Families 1728-1913, by Mrs. Emma Epler Knudson - p. 75-76 on the Huckleberry family. It says specifically -

"First Generation: Benjamin Huckleberry, born in Strausburgh at Weisenburg (Germany)...not being able to pay the passage (to America), son Frederick assumed the debt and was sold at auction with other emigrants.

Second Generation:
- Frederick Huckleberry married after his time of service was completed and moved to Lexington, Indiana. He died at the age of 114 years. Frederick and his wife had one son Peter.

- Elizabeth m. Mr. Barrickman (I believe in Kentucky) and moved to Indiana. They had one son, Fred Barrickman.

-George m. Rosanna Wise of Hagarstown, Maryland, and afterward moved to Uniontown, Fayette County PA, and later moved to Abbott Station, Jefferson county, KY. Rosanna, his wife, died at Abbott Station soon after they arrived and he married Mrs. Packinpaw of Jefferson county, 1796 he moved to Clark county, Indiana."

There are errors in this book, and more information has been found on the family.

In PA German Immigrants of 1709-1786, by Don Yoder (1980), p. 319 it says that A Benjamin Hagelberger of Rott with a wife and 5 children, and Catharina Hagelberger of Rott left for America in 1752. I have only the specific page, and haven't seen the book.

Benjamin, the father, was est. to have been born ca 1710. It was recently found that his wife was Dorothea Batt; she died on the voyage to America. Benjamin's parents ere Balthasar Hagelberger and Anna Christina Bechinger. The children were thought to have been Benjamin Jr., Frederick, Elizabeth, George and Jacob, but this has not been confirmed.

-Frederick, possibly born ca 1732, thought to have married Mary, lived in Frederick county MD, then to Frederick county VA (now Berkeley county W.VA), and is found in a deed dated 1763, mentioning brothers Paul and Jacob; he is in Jefferson county KY by 1789; then supposedly moved to Lexington, Indiana. Had one son Peter. There are doubts about him living to the age of 114.

Elizabeth, who supposedly m. Mr. Barrickman, is thought by some to have been the Polly/Mary Huckleberry (born ca 1742) who married Peter Casper and lived in Culpeper County, Virginia, but this has not been proven.

There was a Catherine (Caty) Huckleberry, who m. Johann George Beckenbach, he b. ca 1726 (not sure of this DOB). She supposedly died 1790 in Kentucky, and may have been a sister of Benjamin Sr, and possibly the Catharina who emigrated in 1752. Johann George Beckenbach was the son of Johann Adam (1682) and Anna Maria Schmidt of Frederick county MD, brother of George Peter Beckenbach/Peckinpaugh who m. Catherine Tullis (lived in VA, W.VA. and Kentucky; and brother of Georg Adam Beckenbach who m. Anna Barbara. This Anna Barbara supposedly married/2 George Huckleberry (b. ca 1743), who m/1 Rosanna Wise.

Since few actual DOB's are known for these earlier ancestors, and few records to be found (so far) it has been mostly speculation by researchers on these early connections.

I was in error when I mentioned that the Huckleberry's lived in Uniontown PA - a recent plat map of German Township, Fayette county PA shows the George Huckleberry survey in German Township, warrant dated 27 Oct 1785. Living south of George are John Barrickman and Michael Franks. George and Frederick Huckleberry emigrated to Abbott's Station, Jefferson county KY ca 1789.

Another researcher found the following at the PA Room of the Uniontown Library - (microfilm) Court Continuances beginning in 1784:
Philip Smith vs. Frederick Huckleberry - the word Ejectment was written to the right of the names, and the researcher could not make out the rest of it, except for the name Michael Franks, "who may have put up bail or or paid a fine." The researcher also stated that Philip Smith was the father of Abigail Smith (1769-1845) who m. George Franks ca 1783; George was eldest son of Jacob Franks and Barbara.

There are several families that may be connected with the Huckleberry's and may have emigrated with them from MD to PA, and to VA, W.VA (Frederick) and Kentucky, later to Clark county, Indiana. Actual records are needed to confirm, however, and it's been a frustrating search for those records. Many of the women's maiden names have not been found.

The marriage of Frederick Barrockman (sic) to Elizabeth Abbott on 27 Jun 1796 in Jefferson County, KY is in a Family Tree Maker CD, No. 210: NGS Quarterly, "Kentucky Records," contributed by W.J. Gammon, Louisville, KY. The Abbotts lived in Culpeper county VA, Jefferson county KY and Clark county IN. I haven't been able to match this Elizabeth with a specific family. This Frederick may have been the son of Elizabeth Huckleberry and "Mr. Barrickman," from the Epler Genealogy, but as usual, no proof.

I would welcome any help in straightening out this family.
