Please do not change any of the following research notes of Fuller-5853. New Comments added should within a Yellow template which is properly date stamped using "4 tildes". Previous comments will have contributors initials within a yellow template. For example, Added by KGS.

Andrew's Birth in York County, Pennsylvania Place of birth, York County, was founded 19 August 1749.

29 Dec 1749.
son of Petter Heil and Susanna Catharina
Location in record.
Christ Reformed Church near Littlestown, Adams County, Pennsylvania could not be place of birth because Littlestown wasn't settled until 1765.
Explanation added by KGS: Christ Reformed Church is the present-day name of the church. When the church was organized 4 May 1747 by Rev. Michael Schlatter it was called "Christ (Conewago) Church" and was still part of Lancaster County. In 1749 York County was formed from part of Lancaster County and eventually became present-day Adams County. [1]

Parents' Marriage: Evangelisch, Hundsbach, Rheinland, Prussia.

13 Jun 1730.[2]
Peter Heyl and Susanna Catharina Muellers.
Explanation added by KGS: A derivative index incorrectly reflects her maiden name as Muellers. The original church book entry specifically identifies her as Susanna Catharina, Ulrich Müller's tochter. Tochtor is German for daughter.

Rucker page 37 mentions "In 1769, land was patented to Andrew Hoyl (son of "Pioneer Peiter" Heyl) from the state."[3]

See TaWeena: Added by KGS: co-signed Andrew's deed selling his patented land.
See Land transaction during 1797. This transaction was probably the one which Rucker mentioned.

Rucker also mentioned that Andrew born about 1931 and went back to Maryland. Are there any sources to support this?

Hoffman mentions several details about Andrew:[4]

1771: Served under Captain Frederick Hambright, who led the expedition against the Cherokees listing the rank of Lieutenant for Andrew's brother, John. No rank was listed for Andrew.
Mr. Hoffman's publication is a secondary source and does not document facts. Seargeant Andrew Hoyle's rank is stated in his commanding officer's invoice for payment of his troops.[5]
28 February 1775: Land grant of 80 acres in Tryon County, North Carolina.
1790: US Census enumerated Andrew with a household of 11 with no slaves listed.[6]
If all counted were his wife and children then he may have married before 1775 when his oldest child, if male, was born. Marriage may have been earlier, if they had daughter(s) before their first born male. Fuller-5853 21:19, 28 August 2019 (UTC).

Other records:

1800: US Census enumerated Andrew as HOH of 14: 6 under 16 (under 10 were 2 males and 3 females; between 10 and 15 was 1 male); 6 between 16 and 25 (3 males and 3 females); and over 25 (1 male and 1 female).
If all counted were his wife and their children, assuming no multiple births, then their children would have been born about every 20-24 months over a period of less than 25. Other possibilities:
There are 3 males between 16 and 25 which could have been laborers who were either:
sons and/or nephews
sons-in-laws (some of the children under 10 could be grandchildren.
unrelated laborers.
