I chose to put the title of this post in German because my 4th great grandmother was of German descent. I believe that Anna Margaretha was the daughter of Nicolaus Wolfarth (Wohlfarht/Wolford) who came to this country in 1743 aboard the Snow Charlotte. He married Catherine on July 9, 1746 in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. That's just north of Philadelphia. They were German Reformed members of the Old Goshenhoppen Church and although there are no tombstones now standing with their names, it is believed they were buried there. Nicholaus is in the records as an early member.
Anna Margaretha, their second to last child was born January 21, 1763 and christened February 25, 1763. At about the age of twenty, she was married to Jeremias (Anglicized to Jeremiah) Kershner (also spelled Kerschner/Cashner). It was their son, Daniel, who married Rebekah Alspach - one of my third great grandmothers that was featured last month.
By 1822 all of their 12 children were been born (some laid to rest in Pennsylvania) and they load up the family and move to Circleville in Fairfield County, Ohio. Margaretha lived to be a little more than 83 years old; outliving her husband by more than 20 years. Good German stock! They had attended church at the (still) Reformed Church that was alternatively called the Glick or Brick church. Margaretha is buried in the cemetery there with Jeremiah.
