My maternal 5th-great grandparents, Godfrey HECK and Elizabeth KIMMER, were married on this date in 1802 in Bracken County, Kentucky.  Godfrey was the son of Daniel and Catherine (________) HECK.  Elizabeth was the son of Nicholas and Sarah (FAYLER) KIMMER.  Godfrey was born 1781 in Maryland.  Elizabeth was born circa 1785 in Pennsylvania.  They had 13 children and lived in Kentucky and Fayette County, Indiana.  Godfrey died November 30, 1858 in Bentonville, Fayette County, Indiana.  Elizabeth died 1860 in Fayette County, Indiana.

My maternal 3rd-great grandaunt, Susanna HEATON, married on this date in 1846 in Brown County, Ohio to Robert N.
