Re: Christian Schlechty-m. in Darke Co 1839
Hi Lisa. We must be cousins of some degree. YOu are speaking about the Christian Schlechty (Schlechten, Schlasten, Lechty) born 1722 in Germany and died 1777 in Berks Co., Pa.?I cannot explain her last name. Many of those names had multiple spelling and pronunciations (like Schlechty itself)
Dale Bricker on the Schlechty Genforum had some information on them.
Just a general feeling, however, that in those days, German immigrants probably did not marry outside their kind. Magdalena was probably born in Germany as well as Christian and immigrated with him. I have a death date of 1814, but I don't know its source.
