    Note, based on the age of Adam, one would think Adam could have been married
    in Germany and had children before being married to Catharine. Age is from ship list
    I believe. I still wonder if maybe he was in fact younger when he came over.

    note: much info taken from Misc. Family Histories by Raymond E
    Hollenbach, 929.2 Misc at Lehigh Co Hist Soc

    In Immigrants from Western Palatinate (in appendix), mentions Meissenheim records:
    John Adam Mauer of Becherbach leaves for America, 1740
    also, Johannes Maurer of Becherbach leaves for America, 1741
    (so I think this is our Adam here)
