looking for Descendants of Wilheim Dietrick of Germany

Wilheim Die4trick was a Baron in Dresden Germany. Three of his sons came to Philadelphia. Elias came first in the 1730's or 40's. He left his three sons with two of his brothers.

He married a woman when he was in Philadelphia. He settled in Northampton County,PA. When his two brothers came over they brought his sons with them. I am trying to figure out which of his sons my
Elias is a descendant of. He was born in 1816 and died in Towanda, Bradford County,Pa. in 1897. i think his father was John Dietrick.

Elias married Julie Everett from Lynn Township,Northampton,PA.
They had my great-grandfather Alfred F. Dietrick. He died in Northampton.

Johann Jacob Hausserann (Heiserman)

Johann Jacob Haussermann (Heisetrman) came to America in 1854 with his wife Margaret,and two children,Johann Jacob and Johanna. They settled in Columbia,Lancaster,PA.

Johann Jacob dropped the Johann and went by Jacob Heiserman. I have traced his family back to Germany to the beginning of 1700. I have church record copies from their for marriage,b ieth,and death,

I have quite a lot of information, except, I cannnot find his wifes death in Columbia, or Lancaster County Court Records. I think she died before Jacob who died in 1890.

Is there anybody out there who is doing their genealogy on this family?


My grandmother was Mayme Kocher. She married Chester Conrad. They live in Allentown,PA. Mayme and Chester are buried in St. Mark's Cemetery in Allentown.

Mayme's father was George Kocher, his father was Elias Kocher, and his father was Peter Kocher, and then his father was Martin Kocher. Martin came to America in 1737 with his wife Sarah and they settled in Lowhill,Lehigh,PA.
