The Rhicard (Reichert) Family written by Flora J. Primmerman Rhicard The name Reichert is of German origin. "The first Joseph Reichert sailed to America on the Lion and arrived at West Camp, N.Y. in 1710. He was a widower and one of his fellow passengers was Anna Maria Travers whose husband died on board ship. On January 9, 1711 Joseph and Maria were married. They had two sons, both born in West Camp, the eldest dying in infancy. The second child, John David, was born in 1714 and that same year the family found a -permanent home in Rhinebeck." ----------------------------------------------------- RIKERT - RYKERT - RIKER A Record of the Descendants of Joseph Reichert who immigrated from Germany in 1710 and settled at West Camp, Ulster County, N.Y. removing to Duchess County in 1714 He was of the founders of Rhinebeck, N.Y. Situated on the Hudson River, north of New York City compiled by Smith Henry Riker 2 Sep 1863 - Albany, N.Y. in 1932 republished by the Lawrence Charles Riker Family 69 Cloverland Dr. Rochester, N.Y. 14610 (585) 381-6701 firstname.lastname@example.org 1 August 2003 http://rikers.org/RikertRykertRiker.pdf Page 9. -- Joseph Reichert, a native of Kirchberg, county of Marbach, grand duchy of Wurtemberg, Germany, came to America in 1710 with a large emigration mainly from Palatinate. With some 34 of the Palatine families Rikert moved to Dutchess County, probably in 1714, there becoming one of the founders of Rhinebeck. Joseph Reichert, a widower married Anna Maria Traver, a widow. Two sons were born of this marriage, John Bernhard, December 30, 1711, and John David, April 17, 1714. John Bernhard seems to have died young. The spiritual needs of the Palatines were in good hands; the Rev. Joshua Kocherthal, a Lutheran minister, and the Rev. John Frederick Hager, a minister of the Reformed church who had taken orders in the Church of England. While on shipboard Kocherthal administered the Page 10. - sacraments and began the records bearing his name. They are written in German with Latin captions and sentences, and still are preserved in the parsonage of St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church at West Camp, whose early records they, distinctively, are. They have been translated by the Rev. Christian Krahmer for “Olde Ulster”, a publication devoted to Ulster County history. This ensures their preservation from loss by fire or otherwise. A part of the very first page is missing. The first entries are two baptisms in 1708 on board the ship “Globus”. Thus it is seen that Kocherthal made a voyage ahead of the Palatine immigration of 1710. On that occasion he accompanied a smaller party of Palatines who were the first settlers at Newburgh. Arriving in a wilderness in the fall of the year there was barely time to erect crude huts before the winter set in. That winter of 1710-11 is said to have been severe, causing much hardship and suffering among indomitable courage they lost no time in establishing a school and church. Imbued with the spirit of independence, and directed by their able and beloved Kocherthal, they formed a colony which soon was triumphant over the hardships incident to frontier life, and helped lay the foundation for a republican government and free institutions. It is difficult to overestimate the value of their many noble and sterling qualities upon the life and the state of the nation then in its early formative stage. John David Rikert, Joseph Rikert’s surviving son, married Anne Elizabeth Schafer by whom he had eight sons and four daughters, the baptismal records of all of whom are found in the church books. The descendants of four of the sons have been traced to the present time (1931). Each of the four other sons had children, but the tracing of their descendants, if indeed, there are any, has so far been unsuccessful. Page 15. -- Joseph Rikert (b. abt 1662) Joseph Rikert was a native of Kirchberg, Wurtemberg, Germany. He came to America in 1710 with a large emigration of Palatines and settled on the west bank of the Hudson River in Ulster (then Albany) County where now is West Camp. He did not long remain there. About 1714, with some 30 other families, he crossed the river and was one of the founders of the town of Rhinebeck, in Dutchess county, where he resided until his death in 1742. That the surname is variously written here is not accidental. A diversity in the spelling of proper names is found in the old church and other records. And the people themselves often wrote their names differently. The spelling here follows that found in the records. The earliest known reference to Joseph Rikert places him with the Palatines at West Camp in the fall of 1710, where he is called a Palatine. The church records tell us where he came from and the story of the Palatine emigration is the only account of his coming to this country. Page 17. -- Joseph Rikert’s name is found first in a “Statement of heads of Palatine families and number of Persons in both Towns on ye west side of Hudson’s River, Winter, 1710”. Documentary History of New York, Vol. III, pp. 569 and 570.) West Camp then consisted of two towns, Newton and Elizabethtown. The statement contains 82 names, and tabulates 257 persons under six headings as follows: men, 77; lads from 9 to 15, 36; boys from 8 & under, 13; women, 84; maids from 9 to 15, 33; girls from 8 & under, 14. The 42nd name in the statement is that of Joseph Reichert, and following the name one person only is recorded, and that in the column headed “men”. This places him in West Camp in early winter of 1710, alone, without family. The church records call him widower in January, 1711. Kocherthal records the marriage of Joseph Reichert and Anna Maria Traver at West Camp as follows; “January 9, 1711, Joseph Reichert of Kirchberg, county of Marbach, grand duchy of Wurtemberg, a widower and Anna Maria, widow of the late Johann Niclaus Treber, a Wheelwright, of Wollstein in the county of Cruetznach”. Tradition says John N. Traver died on the voyage to America. Kocherthal Page 18. -- records also the births of two sons born of this marriage, one “January 29, 1712, Johann Bernhard, born December 30, 1711, child of Joseph and Anna Maria Reichert; sp. Johann Bernhard Zipperlin and his wife”. These translations are those of the Rev. Krahmer. The other “April 18, 1714, Johann David, born the 17, child of Joseph and Anna Maria Reichert; sp. Johann Bernhard Zipperlin and his wife.” Anna Maria Zipperlin (Zipperly) was a sister of Joseph Rikert. Since both children were named John, and John Bernhard is not again heard of, it is presumed he died young. Some four years after their arrival at West Camp, perhaps late in 1714, thirty-five families, including that of Joseph Rikert, removed to Dutchess County there becoming one of the founders of Rhinebeck. They settled on lands laid out for and sold to them in fee, by Col. Henry Beekman, on that part of his patent now covered by the town of Rhinebeck. Their settlement was Page 19. -- about twelve miles down the river from West Camp, and from one to three miles north of the present village of Rhinebeck. The name Rhinebeck was confined to these people until the organization of Rhinebeck precinct in 1715. He records the marriage of Joseph Rikert's daughter (by his former marriage), Anna Canstantia, to Carl Naher, "at Rhinebeck" January 11, 1715. This is strong evidence that Rikert then was living at Rhinebeck, probably having settled there in 1714 after the census. His farm of 75 acres was located on the King's Highway, now the Albany Post road, about 1-1/2 miles north of the present village, and two miles east of the river. It is presumed, but not proven, that he took possession of this land in 1714. A deed was given him October 20, 1718, buy the heirs of Col. Beekman, which calls him Joseph Rikert, of Rhinebeck, yeoman. Page 20. -- The taxes were for three purposes, viz.: his majesty's revenue, his government in the colony of New York, and the county--for "maintaining the poor and preventing vagabonds". Bartholomeus Hoogeboom was paid "10 shillings for ye Stocks making". Joseph Rykert's name continues in the list each year up to 1742. The 1743 assessment is in the name of "Joseph Rykert's widow". Thus his death is pretty definitely fixed as having occurred either in 1742 or 1743, probably in 1742 as the assessment rolls in these two years are dated February 2 and February 1, respectively. His assessed valuation ranged from 15 pounds to Page 21. -- 20 pounds. In 1738 it amounted to 16 pounds, while in 1739 it was reduced to 5 pounds. His son David was assessed first in 1737. His assessed valuation in 1737 and 1738 was 1 pound, and in 1739 it was increased to 12 pounds. Therefore it is evident that Joseph transferred the bulk of his property to David in 1738. The sum of Joseph's and David assessments each year from 1737 to 1742 was 17 pounds. Joseph's widow's assessment for 1742 and afterwards was 1 pound. Joseph Rikert was named a freeholder in a census of the county in 1740. It previously was stated that Joseph Rikert was without family upon his arrival at West Camp in 1710, and was called "widower" when married in 1711. Yet he is known to have had a daughter, Anna Constantia, and a sister, Anna Maria, who are presumed to have followed him to America. Both were married by Kocherthal, Anna Maria at West Camp, in 1711 and Anna Constantia, as already stated, at Rhinebeck in 1715. The name of his father is learned from the marriage record of his sister, which calls her the daughter of the late Hans (John) Reichard of Kirchberg, County of Marbach, Wurtemberg. Page 22 -- It falls to the lot of few men to help found three churches. All of which has since been continuously active. Yet Joseph Rikert merited that distinction. Upon their arrival at West Camp the Palatines lost no time in providing themselves a place of worship. This was St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, whose activities ever have continued, and whose 210th anniversary was celebrated in May 1930. The original church records, still intact, contain the earliest American record of the Rikert family. The names of Joseph Rikert and his wife Anna Maria appear frequently in them, and later the 35 Palatine families who removed to Rhinebeck; and is thought to have been the first in Dutchess County. Among these people were Lutherans and Calvinists, who built the first church together, remaining joint owners about fifteen years. The Lutherans sold their interest in the church and four acres of ground to the Reformers on December 10, 1729. Joseph Rikert was a Lutheran and was a member of the committee of four to whom the payment, 25 pounds current money of New York, was made. The Lutherans then built themselves a church, St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church, one half mile north of the Reformed church. The building was later rebuilt and is popularly called the "Stone Church". Its location is about three miles north of Rhinebeck village and about one mile north of the Rikert farm. The Reformed church continued to function until 1800, when it became St. Paul's (Zion) Evangelical Lutheran Church and moved three miles north to Red Hook. If any records were kept during the union of these churches between 1715 and 1730 they are lost. Joseph Rikert and his wife Anna Maria served as sponsors at various baptisms, both at West Camp and Rhinebeck from 1711 to 1738. In a list of things given in 1716 by "Christian and Kindly disposed persons...for the furtherance and maintenance of our work in connection with church and school" (at West Camp), Kocherthal states that Anna Maria Reichart gave a tin basin for the administration of Holy Baptisms. Rev. W. C. Berkenmeyer's Chronicles contain much of the history of the Lutheran Church in the Hudson and Mohawk valleys during the period 1731 to 1750. An entry dated Rhinebeck, August 29, 1737, gives the name of Velt Scheffer, Jurge Deter, Mich. Zipperle, Joseph Rychard and Jacob Scheffer.
