John MUR(S)CHBACHER born 1837, Germany, married Anna Suttmiller, died 1928, Meyersdale Pennsylvania. They had 10 children: Joseph, John, Lawrence, Paul, William, Leo, Emma, Mary, Anna and Charles. Joseph was my g-grandfather, and that line is fairly complete.
I was hoping someone might be able to fill me in on the rest of the children. John went by MERCHBACHER. Lawrence kept MURSCHBACHER. Paul and William used MERCHBAKER. Leo and Charles changed their spelling to MURBERGER OR MERBERGER, something to do with a railroad job. Emma, Mary, Anna and Joseph used MERCHBERGER. It is this spelling that my line descends from.
I would love to hear from anyone with info on the name mentioned above! Thanks.
