Marriage: before 1849

Children+:

1. George, Jr. (1849-1921) (m. Mathilda Sarver)
2. Mary (1852- ) probably never married and George, Sr. lived with her in West Deer after becoming widowed, according to 1900 Census
3. Anna K. (1853-1926) (m. Charles J. Walter)
-burial: St. Paul’s Lutheran
4. Louis (1855-1920) (m. Elizabeth J. Bryson)
5. Rosanna/Rosa (R.A.) (1860-1932) (m. Henry Miller)
-burial: St. Paul’s Lutheran
6. Christena (1862-1928) (m. Frank Drum)
7. Rachel Elizabeth (R.E.) (1866-1946) b. probably Richland Twp.; r. West Deer Twp., Allegheny Co., PA (m. William James Campbell; our line)
-burial: East Union Presbyterian Cemetery, WDT
8. Elizabeth ? (1874-1927) Annie would have been 50 when she was born; not found in family records.

* one Ancestry.com family tree suggests the “K” is for Krug, possibly a maiden or family name, and that Annie/Anna was also born in Bavaria. The 1928 death certificate of daughter Christena (Drum) states that Annie’s maiden name was Hyde and that she was born in Germany.

+ my earlier Vitals page mistakenly included a Margaret Hoffman (b. 1846) of NJ who married a William Maines.
