Update published in the newsletter of the Dreisbach Family Association Sept. 2012, written by Marcia Dreisbach Falconer, Editor: Dreisbach Family Association Newsletter, attached.

Martin Dreisbach (1717-1799) and Anna Eve or Eva Hoffman Dreisbach (1722-1789), were the parents of Johann Jacob Dreisbach.

Dreisbach Family Association Newsletter, September 2012, written by Marcia Dreisbach Falconer Editor, states:

Martin Weds: Martin must have left Raumland and gone to the town of Krombach, perhaps to find to work as a blacksmith. There Martin met Anna Eva Hoffman (1722-1789), the daughter of Johannes Hoffman and Elisabetha Hadem. Anna’s father was a respected man in Krombach. He had served as the official schoolmaster for a period of time, and was also a church elder. Martin and Anna Eva were married in the Evangelical Reformed Church in Krombach on 9 November 1742 when Martin was 25 years old and Anna Eva was 20.

Martin and Anna Eva continued to live in Krombach for the next nine years. Five children were born to them during this time. Two of them died, one as a three month old infant, the other as a three and a half year old child. The birth and death dates of these children are found in the register of the Krombach Evangelical Reformed Church . (Deaths in PA. are not recorded in the Krombach Church book but are included here for completeness.) They are:

Johann Henrich: b. 25 June 1743 – d. 11 Oct 1743 in Krombach

Elisabeth: b. 15 Oct 1744 – d. 5 Feb 1748 in Krombach
