John (Humrick) HOUSER and Maria Barbara QUICKEL
Posted by: Mary Cox (ID *****8441) Date: April 04, 2012 at 15:03:02

Hi: I'm hoping someone can help me. I am trying to find "proof" of the marriage of Maria Barbara Quickel and John Humrickhouser. John Humrickhouser, later in life, changed his last name to Houser.

Maria Barbara was the daughter of Johan George Quickel and Maria Ursula Mueller.

I have seen in "print" on the internet that they were supposedly married about 1771 in Lancaster Co., PA. I have also seen that they were married in Germantown, Philadelphia PA.

While I have no doubt that they were married I am still trying to locate some type of documentation which confirms the Quickel Houser relationship.

I find John and Barbara in York Co., PA living across the Little Conewago Creek from Quickel's Church. Many of the birth dates of their children are recorded at Quickel Church. They moved to Shenandoah Co., VA before 1790. And in 1817 John is buying land in Fairfield Co., OH which is where he died in 1831.

If anyone can help me or give me any ideas as to where I should be looking for confirmation of this union I would definitely appreciate it.
