Steve, Michael BRITEGAM who m. Mary Ann PONTIUS 20 September 1860, Pickaway Co.,OH, is ALMOST CERTAINLY the son of Henry BRAEUTIGAM & Anna Maria REIFF KEMP who married 27 October 1827, Berks Co.,PA. [Anna Maria REIFF m. (1st) 23 March 1823, Berks Co.,PA, to Daniel KEMP.] Anyway, Henry BRAEUTIGAM was MOST LIKELY born 1797 -1802 in Berks Co.,PA - although I cannot find his birth or christening in either the records of Exeter or Upper Alsace Twp. Henry died sometime after the 1840 Amanda Twp, Fairfield Co.,OH, Census & before 20 September 1842.That is the date of the codicil to Michael BAEUTIGAM/BRIDEGAM/BRAUTIGAM will, where he stated that his son & co-executor, Henry, was deceased. It is MY BELIEF that Michael had a brother, David, who married 20 July 1859, Pickaway Co.,OH, to Catherine A. PONTIUS. [Don't know her exact relationship to Mary Ann.] Get back with me for more siblings for Michael. *Currently heavily involved in MARCH MADNESS & don't want to send along something not quite right.
