DIEHL-HEFT family of Haycock Twp., Bucks Co., PA
Posted by: Ed Deal (ID *****2349) Date: May 10, 2012 at 14:09:26

A large number of postings on the internet refer to an (undated) marriage of JOH. PETER HEFT to ANNA ELISABETH CATHARINE DIEHL. They are said to have settled in Haycock Twp., Bucks Co., where they had a large family. Many postings claim she was b. 20 MAY 1725 in Horshbach, Germany, dof JOH. SIMON & ANNA ELISABETHA DIEHL. I have examined the Hinzweiler Reformed church records, which lists the baptism of an ANNA CATHARINA DIEL, (not ANNA ELISABETH CATHARINE) daughter of SIMON & ANNA ELISABETHA DIEL of Horschbach. What evidence exists to link this DIEL baptism to the HEFT family? I'm interested in PROOF of this family link.

Also, the find-a-grave site for Trinity Union Cemetery, Springfield Twp. lists the death of PETER HEFT as 21 JUNE 1803, while the Bucks Co. Will Abstracts list the will of PETER HEFT as being proved on 8 JUNE 1803, (AT LEAST)one of these dates has to be wrong!!!
