I am trying to locate a possible sister of Valentin and Johannes Kanter. Valentin and Johannes Kantner were sponsers to Valentin and Johannes Engel (twins) b. 5-17-1781, bap. 7-24-1781 at Host Church, Tulpehocken. The parents were Johannes Engel and Anna Margaretha (b. 2-17-1750 d. 6-5-1824). There was at least one other child to this couple. Joh. Henrich b. 7-16-1783 @ Altalaha Ch. , Rehersburg. You have a Maria Margaretha Kantner (b.1747 d. 8-13-1825). I have read that your Margaretha was married to a George Christ. Could she have remarried? The dates of these two women are very similar. I can't be sure mine are exact. I am trying to learn my Margaretha's maiden name. With Valentin and Johannes being sponsors for the Engel twins, it sure seems like there should be a family connection.
