George and Christina are not first cousins as is listed in Norton Merkel Book. George married Christina Hill daughter of Pious Jacob Hill whose wife's name was Elizabeth. Maria Appololina married Jacob the son of Pious Jacob Hill. Norton has the linage correct. I don't know how he come up with the idea that George and Christina were cousins. The immigrant's wife name was Elizabeth and their son and daughter married children of Johann C Mercklen. I don't see anything wrong if they were cousins because it was popular back then to marry cousins, but in this case, Old George didn't married his cousin. But Georg's children and Maria's children are double first cousins.
