Great to find this forum. I've neglected my Hecker background for too long. My father was Melvin Floyd Hecker, and his father was Robert Fredrick Hecker, whose brother was Guy Hecker. Their sister (or Guy's daughter), I believe was named Thelma. Their base seems to have been Cleveland, OH, where both Robert and Guy were employed by the phone company.
I would like to find whatever info I can on my line, and any suggestions would be appreciated. I did find, in searching the Web for Heckers, that Guy Hecker (not my great uncle) still holds the major league baseball record, as a pitcher, for lowest on base percentage allowed in a single season. The likes of Babe Ruth and Roger Clemens are way down on this list. This was in the old American Association, in I think 1886.
Also, Fredrich Hecker, mentioned in a post here in a round about way, can be found at:
Good to be here.
