"The Reicherts (Traditon has it that Daniel and Jacob Reichert in coming to America were on board a vessel that was seized by pirates and the crew and passengers were taken to Turkey where they were landed on some barren coast. In time of six months they were back to London, England, where they again set sail for America and landed safely in 1753. They belonged to the Moravian Brethern in Switzerland from which place they emigrated to America) of Wilmot Township are descendants of Daniel Reichert (Tradition has it that his wife was a Susannah Kindig) who emigrated to America in 1753 and settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where he died after his family was of age. We cannot ascertain at so late a date the names of all of the old progenitor's family, but the names of three of the children were Mary, John and Christian."
