Heinrich Alspach Married Catharine Stein

  of 182

I am hoping that someone out there has information on the parents of Catharine Stein. My research has shown her father to be Jacob Stein,who came to America on the ship " Robert & Alice " on Sept. 24, 1742 with Matthias Meyer. Bern Church records in Berks Co., PA in 1758 shows his wife as Elizabeth. Egle's Notes & Queries of PA 1700s-1800s Vol.1896 , Notes & Queries-XII, Page 69, shows Jacob Stein & Maria Elizabetha Meyer as sponsors for baptism of Maria Elizabetha Graff at Bethel, Berks Co., PA in 1756. I believe Jacob served in the American Revolution either in Capt. Nicholas Shaffer's Co. of Berks Co., Militia or in Capt. Abraham Huy's 7th Co., as Court Martial Men, Berks Co., Militia. I will share information on Alspach Family. I descend from Catharine Alspach b. 7 July 1799, Married Joseph Shaffer on 18 Feb. 1817 in Fairfield Co., Ohio. Catherine is daughter of Henry Alspach Jr b. 20 Jan. 1773 in Berks Co., PA. son of Heinrich Alspach Sr.
