Seeking info on the parents of Mary Ann Albrecht who was born 3 Dec 1755 and died 11 Nov 1837.
An old family history written in 1929 felt her father could be a George from the area near Adamstown, Lancaster Co., PA. It offered no proof; based on heresay.
On 13 Apr 1778 Mary Ann married a Johannes Bucher b.1759 who signed his will in 1819 as Bucher but it begins "I, John Beecher." In later years his sons adopt the Beecher surname. John was buried in 1819 at Epler's Church in Bern Township, Berks County, and area where many Albrecht immigrants settled.
Curiously, the old family history reports Mary Ann Albrecht was buried at "Piquea, Lancaster County."
The baptisms for some of John & Mary Ann's children are found at Trinity Lutheran Church in New Holland, Lancaster County, PA.
