From the history of old Moravian Cemetery:

Born at Heidelberg, Baden, of Huguenot parents. In 1715 she married John Bechtel, a pious mechanic, with whom in 1726 she came to Germantown, Pa. There Bechtel, though not ordained, but licensed by the University of Heidelberg, for more than 16 years officiated as German Reformed minister. In 1742 Zinzendorf was a frequent guest at their house, and J. Bechtel was ordained a Deacon by Bishop D. Nitschmann. Having been dismissed from the Reformed Church in 1746, they removed to Bethlehem.
