In Reply to: Descendants of Magdalena Berkheimer & Samuel Goodnight/Gutknecht by Martha A. Hallowell of 304

Did you know Magdalena Berkhimer and Samual Goodnite are the 5th great grandparents of PRESIDENT OBAMA. Magdalena is the daughter of Leonard Berkhimer from Montgomery Co. PA HE IS ALSO MY 7TH GREAT GRANDFATHER. So all the Berkimers, Berkheimers, from MONTOMERY CO. PA are related to the President. Starting with the first Berkhimers in this country in 1725 WILHELM BERKHIMER AND HIS WIFE MARIA SALOME HALLMAN also spelled BERKHEIMER but on all there grave stones its spelled BERKHIMER same as my last name. The first spelling when they arrived in 1725 was Pirckheimer Then in one generation it changed to Berkhimer or Berkheimer
