About Maria Margaretha Schwartz

It is only a guess that she was brought to this cemetery to be buried with her husband. Have found no record of where she was buried.

On FHL#1597524 is a copy of a German Taufschein. A Taufschein is a combination birth, confirmation & marriage record written in decorative old German script & ornately decorated. Another researcher called it a mini-lebenslauf. It says, in part, Margaret Schwartz of the family of Schlosser was born on the 4th(sic) of January in the year 1773 in Tulpenhocken Twp, Berks Co., PA. Her parents are Joseph Schlosser & his wife Anna Maria of the family of Herdl...& in October in the year 1790, she united herself in marriage to her present husband, Mr. Philip Schwartz. NOTE: other translations of this Taufschein say she was born on the 1st of January, not the 4th.

Margaret wrote her will in May of 1841 & died in June 1841 at the household of Jacob W.Seitzinger in Cumru Twp, Berks, PA. All five of her children were alive. She was living with her daughter, Ann Seitzinger, in Cumru Twp at the time of her death...she named her 5 children: John Schwartz, Mary Ruch, Betsy Haas, Ann Seitzinger & Francis Schwartz.* Reference: Find A Grave Memorial - SmartCopy: Aug 30 2019, 20:29:00 UTC
