Ulrich Spieß/Spiess and his wife, Maria Dorothea Tröster/Troester, along with five of their seven children came to America from Ober Lustadt on the ship Saint Andrew Sept. 21, 1734.

Their children were:

(Anna) Maria Barbara Spiess b.4-30-1729 (m.Johann Michael Axer/Oxer on 12-21-1746,Tulpehocken Twp in Lancaster/Berks Co., PA)

Johann Jacob Spiess b.abt 1731 (may have married an Elizabeth? on 2-11-1753?) Jacob is listed as only surviving son in Ulrich's will 3-13-1861 Berks Co. PA, However, the Troester boys are still surviving.
