Re: Warstler - my ancestors
I did indeed return this summer to Kaiserslautern, to the Institut fuer pfaelz. Geschichte und Volkskund, Benzinoring, 6, and did find a little more about Johann Heinrich Woerschler's (1729-1814) in-laws. The information is found in the Register zu dem Kirchenbuch der lutherischen Pfarrei TRIPPSTADT, 1698-1798, which has library number 93.386/quarto KB 145. Pages 114-115 (among others) provide essentially the following information: Johann Heinrich was married to Maria Katharina Schaefer whose father was Hans Heinrich Schaefer, born abt 25 March 1688, probably in Trippstadt. He married 22 June 1716 in Trippstadt and died 11 Feb 1731 in Trippstadt. The woman he married was Anna Magdalena Schaf (sometimes Schaaf) who was born 22 Jan 1697 and who died in Trippstadt 18 Oct 1744. Her father was Jacob Schaf (or Schaaf) born about 1662, married about 1691, died at an unknown date. Jacob Schaf's wife was Anna Maria Barbara (maiden name unknown) who was born about 1673 and who died 25 Jan 1710 in Trippstadt.
