Mathias and Marie Kelchner, Law enacted in 1819 session

The law enacted in Harrisburg PA in 1818-9 session where a Marie Kelchner receives so much money each year from husband, Mathias could not be the original Mathias that came over in abt. 1730. Daughter Maria Eva Kelchner daughter of the first Mathias was married in 1752. If he was 20 something when he came to the US, he would be abt. 40 years of age. If his wife was 13 when she gave birth to Marie and Marie is 13 when she married, she would be abt. 26 in 1752. If she does not receive the money from the will until 1819 that would make her 93. I doubt this is the original Mathias but a decendant from one of the four original Kelchners.
