Elizabeth Graul, was convicted at the November Term of Oyer and Terminer 1758, and was hanged at Reading, Pa. March 10, 1759. No facts regarding this remote case has been transmitted. (Susan Cox, "Her Crime and its Expiation" by Louis Richards Esq., March 13, 1900) If we assume that Elizabeth's married name was Graul her maiden name I believe was Learch. She was the wife of Johann George Graul. She is the only Graul
family member that fits the time sequence and was a widow at that time.
I was never able to find any information on her other then:
J GEORGE died BEF 29 DEC 1753, Maidencreek Twp., Berks Co., Pa, bur. CHRIST LUTH CEM, Rockland Twp., Pa.
Johann George's will was probated in Berks Co. December 29, 1753.
He was said to be buried at Christ Lutheran Church, Rockland Twp. Berks Co. Orphans Records May 16, 1754, petition of Elizabeth Groul, widow and administratrix of the estate of George Groul, deceased, who died
intestate leaving four young children, and was possessed of a tract of land of 100 acres, in Maidencreek Township.
