Re: Gottfried Thomas and Anna Maria Brosius?

In Reply to: Gottfried Thomas and Anna Maria Brosius? by Richard Thomas of 213


I believe if you check in Floyd's History Of North'd Co. page 755 you will see a Godfried Thomas married a Hannah Dressler. On this page it mentions her father being John Jacob Dressler and he obtained a clear title for the church property of St. Peter's (Kreb's) Church at Mahanoy (Jackson Township). I then looked in my Meiser's Burial book under St. Peter's (Kreb's) Church Cemetery and found a Gottfried Thomas (b. April 13, 1802 & d. Nov. 11, 1888) married to Hannah Dressler (b. August 5, 1805 & d. April 3, 1876).

I think this may be the wrong GOTTFRIED THOMAS, but maybe it will give you a lead to your answer.

As far as Anna Maria Brosius, daughter of Sebastian Brosius; I have been unable to find anything on her. In the book "Dalmatia, Pennsylvania - A Bicentennial 1798-1998"
available from the Mahantongo (North'd Co.) Historical Society on page 20 & 21 it lists the 9 children of Sebastian & Margaretha (Roth)Brosius and sorry to say Anna Maria is NOT on that list.
Good luck in your hunt!
