Relationship notes

They married.


Margretha was born 1630. She died 1659.

There is no way to tell if g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-grandmother Margretha is a relative of my paternal Deffler/Daeffler/Doeffler ancestors but I think it is a slim chance at best. The earliest traced Defflers report their origin as Bavaria, which lies some 100 miles to the east of Alsace. I have to imagine that, in the absence of a major east-west river, that distance was a bigger barrier in those days. Still, it's possible my maternal and paternal lines ran into each other once long before my parents met.
