Ferree Family Genealogy Forum
Please cite any documents you have BEFORE 1716 excluding her PA Will of 1716 that states where Maria Warenbaur was addressed as any spelling of Madame Ferree. I can not find any documents in Germany or the Colonies to date that address her as anything except Warenbaur (all spellings). I would be interested in your research so I can order copies of this documented name change.
Apparently, Wikipedia's informant has not done any research on earlier French naming customs. They are citing from a broad base of knowledge from a much later time period other than 1681. Anyone is free to write comments on Wikipedia which means it is not a very reliable source of documentation for 1681. It is a place to start for newer laws.
