After finding out that my ancestors were from the Moravian Community in Old Salem, NC, I hired a researcher at the Moravian Archives to look up their records. He was most helpful and gave me the names of several of the ancestors and their birth places and dates.
With this information, I hired a German researcher to look in German Parish Records, for example Anna Elizabeth Schwind's information was in records of the Evangelical Church of Ober Saulheim (microfilm no. 1336519). Johann Frederick Fiscus's record is from the same source.
Otto Eckhardt Schwind's wife had the last name of Bart.
You might be interested to know that on Anna Maria's christening record it lists her father's (Johann Heinrich Schwind's) occupation as bailiff. Also, that the name Fiscus is Latin, meaning "tax collector."
