My wife is a descendent of Adam Nicely and Elizabeth Eichert. In an article from a local newspaper it states that brothers Anthony, Jacob and John Kneisle arrived in Philadelphia in 1730. They were accompanied by Joseph Bergan and his family and John Yeager and his family and sister. His sister Elizabeth married Anthony Kneisle. The article goes on to state that this group traveled on foot to southwestern PA. settling in what was then Donegal Township and is now part of Ligonier Township.

Anthony Kneisle and Elizabeth Yeager had 2 sons, Anthony and Adam. Adam married Elizabeth Eichert and their son Anthony married Sarah Hargnett. My wife descends through their son George, his son Anthony and his daughter Catherine. Like you I am looking for information of Elizabeth Eichert.
