Please note: it is undetermined where Odilia Eckerott is currently buried, or if she is even buried here. Her burial does not show up in any death records at Goshenhoppen Registers. It is not proven fact that she may have married into the Kuhn family. Hence the name "Ottilia Kuhn" below...a family name that ran in the Eckerott/Eckeroth/Ickerodt family.

"In July 1764, after the death of Father Schneider and before the arrival of Father Ritter, Father Farmer of Philadelphia performed a marriage at St. Paul's. The bride was Ottilia Kuhn, daughter of Henry Kuhn and the groom was Christian Ruffner. Both are described as being "of that vicinty, opposite the church." This would indicate that Ottilia Kuhn was living on the farm and that Ruffner might have been working as a hired hand, as his family lived beyond the Lehigh River in Northampton County. This also serves to locate the farm complex across the road from the church. The name of another worker on the farm is found in the death records of Father Ritter. In 1776 he notes the death of George Wenig "a poor laborer on my farm." All indication point to the fact that the church farm was an extensive operation, providing work not only for a farmer and his family, but also for a number of hired hands. Other farmers in later years were Simon Adam, Solomon Henrich, John Adam, and Bennett Melchior, the later holding the position at the time of the farm was sold in the nineteenth century. ("MBSC" page 37)"

"An interesting story survives for the Eckroate ancestry. It seems there were three Eckroate brothers being pursued by Indians alone the river. (What river? perhaps the Ohio). Two of the brothers were caught and killed. The remaining brother escaped by hiding in the roots of a tree. It is from this surviving brother that the Eckroate lineage supposedly descended. The Eckroates that settled in Ohio were supposed to have come from Pennsylvania." (Ovid E Eckroate 9 March 1990.)

Submitter's note: "I feel the river may have been the Ontelaunee River or Maiden Creek or a river close to Bally,PA."(Joseph)
