Looking for Maria Magdalena ROUSH in an estate
Posted by: David Myers (ID *****5457) Date: November 01, 2006 at 15:00:55

I am looking for an estate in this county in which there was a daughter of the decendent named Maria Magdalena (Mary Magdalena, just Magdalena, etc.), with a married name of ROUSH. John and Maria Magdalena ROUSH apparently lived in Rockingham Co., VA from 1790 to 1803 since their children were baptized at Friedens Lutheran & Reformed Church in that county. Researchers have been unable to find a marriage license for this couple in Shenandoah or Rockingham Counties. It turns out that some Rockingham County records were destroyed in a fire so estate records may be the only way to discover Maria Magdalena's surname. (There apparently aren't any surviving marriage records for Friedens Church.)

Thanks in advance for whatever clues or leads anyone might have.
