    History His age is given as 38 on the ship passenger list in 1874, which is apparently incorrect. Emmanuel-Canton p. 52 seems to give a birth date of 1 Jan 1854! Lydia Eck Cooper gives birth date as 1 Jan 1835.

    • We searched the entire cemetery and found no stone visible for Andreas Jacob "Andrew" Eck. There was a large open area in the cemetery--could a tornado have gone through there? Also, we wonder if there was an error in the dates (1834-1839) (could it have been 1939?) But we paid special attention to any Eck stones and to any weathered, old stones. We could not find this one.
