In Reply to: John Rector Jr by Judy Miller of 2765

As far as I can tell,it goes something like this:
Hans Johann(Jacob) Richter was born October 10, 1674 in Siegen,Westphalia,Prussia (Germany).He married Anna Elizabeth Fischbach (b. April 15, 1685 Trupbach,Westphalia,Prussia - d. aft. 1760 Germantown,Fauquier County,Va.)in Siegen,Westphalia,Prussia.Together,they had 4 children (as far as I can tell):One, John Sr.,was born in Prussia and was an infant when brought to America in 1714.He was born on Dec. 1, 1711 in Trupbach,Westphalia,Prussia and died on March 11, 1775 in Rectortown,Fauquier County,Va.He married Anna Catherine Fischbach about 1731(b. @1714 Germanna,Orange County,Va.- d. @1732 Rectortown,Fauqier County,Va.).This next part may seem strange but most records show John Sr. as having only one wife-Catherine.However,he was married to two Catherines-Catherine Fischbach and Catherine Taylor (as noted from a dispute over a will in Rectortown,Va. @ 1740 I believe.For more info,see through germhs27.html) John Jr. was, however, the son of Anna Catherine Fischbach.He was born around 1732 in Prince William County,Va. and died around 1773 in Fauquier County,Va. I hope this may help you out.If you would like to share notes or exchange info,feel free to email me at hunting!
