1728 - Vanhoesen to Heidelberg

Excerpt: Joyce Lindstrom, Van Hoose Van Hooser Van Huss Family In America:

Johannes Van Hoesen & Elizabeth Christina Laux moved to Heidelberg Township, Chester County, PA, from Claverack, Albany (now Columbia), New York.

In the spring of 1728 Johannes Van Hoesen and his wife, Elizabeth Christina Laux, and their three children, along with other Germans, migrated to Tulpehocken Creek and settled in the vicinity of what is now called Robesonia. Johannes took up land on what was called the William Allen Tract in Heidelberg Township. (See Map.) Here he remained until his family was all born and most of them had grown to maturity.
