If you please, what Moravian town in 1778 in what is now Ohio was called Halehaketopia? I suspect it may have been Schoenbrunn?? Asking as I would like an answer to the question. Found it on an old document and have not seen it before. "Halehaketopoi (or might end in ai?) & Kenhaudenhead (Gnadenhutten) removed to Lichnaue (Lichtenau)". Listed under "Christianized Indians - Delaware, Monsys". Schoenbrunn seems to be the obvious answer, but unable to confirm it!
Can someone please help with the answer.
Wow, Doc! Those are some major distortions of the originals. Your guess is almost certainly correct, though. Halehaketopia was Welhik Thuppeck. That's "Beautiful Spring" in Lenape--just as Schoenbrunn is "Beautiful Spring" in German. (That's Spring, as in "water well," of course--not the season.)
