Adam, Eve & Peter Lawyer - PA 1700s-1800s

I would like to correspond with others who are researching Peter Lawyer, born 1761, who married Magdalena Henich/Henig. I think that I've discovered the parents for both Peter and Magdalena.

Adam & Eve Lawyer of Berks, then Dauphin Co., PA were the likely parents of Peter and 9 brothers and sisters according to an Orphans Court record for Adam. Philip Lawyer was the administrator, and surely a son. Other "known" children are Herman Anthony, Christine (married Nicholas Newman), Susanna (married Frederick Zerbe), Polly (married Henry Willis), George, and Barbara (married David Dehart).

Mary Magdalena Henich/Henig was likely the daughter of Hieronimous Henig and Susanna Philipina Braun.

I have circumstantial evidence for most of this - would love to share.
