Thank you for the information. I already had the Mouse-Harper data since I am a descendant of Elizabeth Mouse and Henry Harper. I also had Daniel's arrival and death information. (I show that he arrived on the Phoenix in 1743 and died before 28 Aug 1751.)

This is where I am struggling. First, my source information for Daniel and Eve Mouse's children is poor. Identities and ages are out there on various genealogical forums but I not too sure on how well its sourced. I don't have anything on Daniel's sister, Catherine. And finally, I am having trouble with the previous Mauss and Spiegel generations and the information relating to their German roots.

When I did the Harper early generations I went to Boppard where the Lutheran Evangelical Church has its archives. I was able to get original and translated records for their birth/christening/marriages/deaths. Does that same level of detail exist for the Spiegel and Mauss families in the source material you cited? I certainly can't find it on the Mormon's beta web site where they have translated many of these early German records. Lastly, why do you think Daniel ended up marrying in Maryland?
