Hello everyone -
I'm hoping someone out there know the answer to my question. I'm trying to find out if my Barkimers are the same as the Barkhimers and Barkheimers that I see listed here on these boards. I remember hearing as a child that our name used to be Barkhimer or Barkheimer. Does anyone have any information that could point me in the right direction?

My Barkimers are in and around Ohio counties of Allen, Pickaway, Hancock and Hardin.
Thanks!!

Thanks for the reply Kristen. Unfortunately, the Samuel you mention is not the Samuel I have as an ancestor. My Samuel was b. abt. 1809 d. 1846 - 1850. They were in Tuscarawas Co. Ohio until the 1850 census when the family is shown in Hardin Co. minus Samuel. I'm assuming he died shortly before that time.

If you happen to have any information about these Barkheimers it would be fantastic.

Thanks again!

I am a descendant of this Samuel Barkhimer through his daughter Mary Lenore, but have not been able to verify who Samuels parents are. I believe they were Philip and Barbara Burkheimer of Green Co., PA., but am not absolutely certain. I also have no information on Margaret (1786-1855) other than her burial in Jackson Co., IN. Do you have any info on her maiden name/parents?

I would be extremely interested in the information on the pedigree chart you have going back to Germany in 1680. I would be happy to share any information with you that I have on this family.

Surnames: Berkeimer, Bergheimer, Kerger, Hallman, Birkheimer, Berckheimer, Pirckheimer, Barkhimer
What I have so far and hope it is right is:
Samuel Berkheimer b.1783 Pa, married about 1807 Pa, d. 1868 Jackson Co. IN, do not have Margarets last name as of yet.She died1855 and is the one buried in Hoosier Nat. forest in Indiana on a preserved site in the Barkhimer/Bowman Cemetery. (It seems several women's last names are not listed in this family).

His parents were Philip Berkheimer and Barbara.
Philip Berkheimer b. 1749 Upper Salford, Pa d. 1811 Green co. Pa.
Barbara d. April 24, 1813 Green Co. Pa.

Philips parents were Johann Leonard Bergheimer b. 1722 Kleinniedesheim, Rheinpfalz Germany, died b/4 1804
His mother was Maria Catherine Kerger b. 1720, Creuzenach, Switzerland, d. 1795 (Her father listed as Philip Kerger, mother as Anna Maria)

Johann's father was Johann Wilhelm Bergheimer, mother Maria Salome Hallman
Johann Wilhelms father was Balthaser Birkheimer b. 1680 Kleinniedesheim, Rheinpfalz, mother Anna Margaretha

In 1732 there is a Wilhelm Berckheimer (age 20) came from Rotterdam by way of Cowes, arriving in Phil Aug 11, 1732 along with Salome (25), Leonhard (8), Vanentin (6), Magdalena Louisa (5), Johann Georg (3), and Susanna Berckheimer (18) (Not sure how they fit in exactly)
Then listed is Wilibald Pirckheimer b. 12/5/1470 in Eichstatt German d. 12/22/1530 in Germany
Wife Austrian servant b about 1480

There were evidently alot of changes in the spelling of the name Barkhimer.
I do not know exactly how much of the "older" above is correct yet.
Samuel (1783-1867) had Philip (1810) who had Valentine (1839-1922) who had Philip (1863-1897) who had Valentine (1894-1975) who had my dad Robert Barkhimer (1916-1995) who had me (1946- )
I am still researching but also doing my mother's side also so not as much time as I would like.
I really need to find out more about the 3 buried in the Hossier Nat Forest (one is Margaret but no maiden name.)
Hope this helps some. Maybe once I get it all straightened out for sure I can list it all on the web.
Kristen
