Since my book, "The American Sons of Hans
Michael Merckle" was published, my German
Researcher has found the marriage of Christopher Friedrich Merckle, who died in
Durlach in 1772. I have photo copies of the German Church records regarding
them. She was Maria Catharina Hoellrigel and was born 7 Aug 1723/1725 at
Neckarweihingen, Wurttemberg Germany.
They had 3 sons born in Germany before going to New York. She is Christopher F. Merckle's only wife and probably died in Dundas County, Ontario.
I have a few Merckle land records, etc.
I also have a court record that shows Michael Merckle ( who was killed by Indians 1780) wife, Margaretha, was the daughter of Johann Jacob Haas and the sister of Georg Haas who moved to Schoharie if any of your readers are interested in the Haas line. This George Hass wife was also named Margaretha and had a daughter baptized 1769 in Saint Peters Lutheran Church, Schoharie. His name is spelled Hahs, Has etc. in the church record.
