Has anyone researched the Walzs, Krugers Albaughs or Christians? On the above date, Peter Walz & Elisabeth Mohnin were married in Frederick Co. Md. at the Evangelical Lutheran Church and Sara Mohnin was listed as a witness. I also found some other references to other names who could be related such as Walz, Kruger, Albaugh and/or Christian.I found a woman who is a Mohnin and her ancestry is either Estonian or Swedish. This may be an area we have not researched. If you have, please post a reply.
