   Other names for Benjamin were Benjamin Becard,8 Benjamin Becher,9 Benjamin Becherd,5 Benjamin Beechart,10 11 Benajmin Bicher,12 Benjamin Bricker 6 and Benjamin Bücher.12 13

  General Notes:

This Benjamin is very likely a brother of John Beecher/Bucher b.1759 who married Mary Ann Albrecht. They lived very near each other and appear at the same time in the same church registers.

Their father is not proven to be an Emanuel Beecher; that name was suggested in a 1929 family history that offered no proof and researchers have been unable to find any evidence Emanuel existed. Further research is needed.

Using Y-DNA testing, we are proving if the person you are reading about is related to a number of other Bucher, Bicher, Beecher ancestor lines in the 1700's in Pennsylvania.

Among those related by DNA: Johan Engel Bücher d.1778 in Cocalico Township, Lancaster Co.; Johannes Bücher/John Beecher b.1759 d.1819 in Berks County; John Bucher/Bicher b.1791 d.1847 buried in Muddy Creek Cemetery in Lancaster Co.; Johannes Bücher/John Beecher b.abt.1757 d.1848 in Adams Co.; Peter Beecher b.1790 Adams Co.

1. Relatives To Research: For the latest on who his father is, contact treeinfo@searchtrees.com or see http://www.SearchTrees.com/beecher where Y-DNA tests show he is related to others.

2. He appeared on the census in 1800 in Caernarvon Twp., Lancaster, PA. 6 On the same 1800 census page in Caernarvon Township is listed Benjamin Bricker and Philip Becher.

In 1800 Benjamin Bricker's household had:
Males (born)
Under 10 (1791-1800) = 1 son
10-15 (1785-1790) = 1 son
26-44 (1756-1774) = 1 father Benjamin
Females (born)
Under 10 (1791-1800) = 2 daughters
16-25 (1775-1784) = 1 daughter
26-44 (1756-1774) = 1 wife

Benjamin Bricker is living as a neighbor to the Neuswanger [Neiswender] and Segner families, surnames who marry two children of John Beecher who married Mary Ann Albrecht. On the following census page we find John's listing as John Bicher, identified specifically in Churchtown within Caernarvon township. Benjamin would be just outside Churchtown in the township.

In 1800 is listed Philip Becher with:
Males (born)
10-15 (1785-1790) = 1 son
16-25 (1775-1784) = 1 son
45 & over (<=1755) = Philip
Females (born)
Under 10 (1791-1800) = 1 daughter
16-25 (1775-1784) = 1 daughter
26-44 (1756-1774) = 1 wife
