Second Generation

3. Joseph F2 Heckman (Joseph1)(2160) was born in Pocono Twp, Monroe Co, PA February 12, 1825. Joseph died April 10, 1866 in Pocono Twp, Monroe Co, PA, at 41 years of age. Buried at Tannersville Union Cemetery

He married Tillarah Keltner in Monroe Co, PA, 1845. Tillarah was born in Northampton Co., Pa January 27, 1825. (Additional notes for Tillarah Keltner(2161)) Tillarah died October 10, 1881 in Monroe Co, PA, at 56 years of age. Buried at Tannersville Union Cemetery Find A Grave Memorial# 108035072 Find A Grave Memorial# 64162264 In the 1850 census Hamilton Twp Monroe Co PA page 14B, Joseph (age 26) is recorded with Matilda (age 23), Sarah (age 3), Aaron (age 1), and Elizabeth Herchner noted as a widow. Most likely she is Matilda's mother.

In the 1860 census Pocono Twp, Monroe Co, Pa page 649, Joseph F (age 38) is living with Deloris? or Telera (age 34), Sarah (age noted as 22 but should be 12), Aaron (age 11), Mary Ann (age 9), Stephen (age 7), George (age 6), Joseph (age 3) and Henryette (age 10 months). Joseph is noted as being a farmer with personal value noted as $500 and realestate as $3,000.

My guess is also that something has happened to Joseph and Telera by the 1870 census. Their children are living with other families and Joseph and Telera are not in Pocono Twp.
