According to German naming customs, all these kids went by their middle names. Their birth data comes from their parents when their names where entered into the records of St. John's German Reformed Lutheran Church in Augusta Co., VA when they were baptized at St. John's, or put into the St. John's record after they moved there. The Frenger's were one of the original families to establish St. John's. I have info on some of the children's marriages and some descendants.Many stayed right in Augusta County.
