Surnames: MEYER, MYERS, SHMITT, SCHMIDT, BECKER, PECHER
Searching for the family of FREDERICK MEYER, brother of Nicholas Meyer, Sr. who is subject of an earlier Adams County query. FREDERICK MEYER was born ca. 1711 in Germany and married Margaret Scmitt in 1738 in Bedesbach, near Kusel, Germany. They had two children born in Germany: Nicholas Meyer b. 1738 and Jacob Meyer b. 1740. (This from "18th Century Emigrants from German Speaking Lands to North America" by Annette K. Burgert)

Came to America on ship "Marlborough" in 1741. Settled in present day Adams County, PA by 1747 on Mud Run Creek in Huntington Twp.

Attended Lower Bermudian Church and had following children baptised there:

Anna Margaretha Meyer 1750
Joh. Michel Meyer 1750
Maria Meyer 1752
Joh. Valentine Meyer 1761

Also believed to have following children:

Joh. Adam Meyer b. 1750's
Henry b. 1750's

Son Nicholas Myers b. 1738 believed to have married Eva Pecher/Becker and lived in Reading Twp.

There are no estate records for Frederick Meyer in York or Adams County. Does anyone know what happened to him & family? Last known to be in Adams County area in 1785.
