REINHART posted by Emily S. Hinderliter on Tuesday, January 6, 1998
I am seeking information about the children of Michael REINHART (various spellings) who died in March, 1751. He had several children, including Mattig, Hans, Ludwig, Daniel, Christian (or Christiana), Catherine and Julianna. He was one of the original settlers of the Shenandoah Valley. I would like to hear from anyone with knowledge of his children...where they went, who they married, their children's names. We also can find no record of his wife, tho' the inventory of his estate includes a "widow's third". Thanks.Emily S. Hinderliter, Dothan, AL
