Heckert/Heckart Family Pages
The John Michael Heckardt b.1703/Ger, d.aft1860/PA, line.
...My ggGrandmother Eliz Heckart Strayer line. Two Heckart brothers followed early German migration from Penn to NE Missouri in 1838. 
...John Adam1790 Sr Heckart's family settled in Shelbyville & on the Salt River 4mi SW, Salt.River.Twp, Shelby.Co.MO (my line). 
...Yost/Jost1795 Heckart settled about 20mi downstream on the Salt River SW of Spaulding Springs in Ralls.Co.MO. 
...The Heckart's were PA millwrights, craftsman, farmers, rivermen.  For two generations the Adam & Yost lines built and ran mills along the Salt River counties and also farmed.  Some remained in MO; some moved to IA and westward to CA, OR, CO. 
...Other Heckert/Heckart lines moved out of PA also.  The Heckert surname is very difficult to follow and verify for a number of reasons. 
...Much of the post Ancestry material has derived from Meiser's1993 work. 
...There many errors, gaps, best guesses in available Heckert material but it becomes a starting point. 
...For simplicity and allowing for quick tree replacement the Heckert pages are only linked off this index page.  The pages are stand-alone pages, only getting updated when working on a single page so differences will occur through time.  The most current data may be in FTM on a harddrive.

Maternal Genealogy

My genealogy pages contain a lot of data gathered off internet resources and should not assumed correct for official genealogy work.  The information is made available for family use to piece together the possible lineage of several surnames before it is totally lost. If you have connections or data to post send it along. Most of the pages are quite old as web work takes a huge amount of time, plus pages are only edited when a project is revisited.

The Thompson surname came from Scotland/Irelend through Harford Co, Maryland to Harrison/Carroll Co, Ohio, then to Fayette Co, Iowa.  There are many related Ohio surnames in the Arlington, Wadena, Elgin, West Union, Fayette aera.

I have a large amount of reference material stored for Ralls Co.  A moderate amount for Pike and Shelby, with small amount of Marion Co material.  I have made a project of fully digitalizing any of the old atlases/plats for NEMO counties.  My main interest is the Salt River flowage through Pike, Ralls, Monroe, Marion, Shelby Co's, so am out and about with projects and can sometimes find old burials, lost places, etc. of interest for digitals.
