"The first Lutheran entry is the baptism of Lydia, daughter of Andrerw Moothart and his wife Magdalena nee Kuerschner, born July 17, 1833, and baptized August 25, 1833, with David Schwander and his wife Lydia nee Kuerschner, as the sponsors".
HISTORY OF THE ST. JACOB'S EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CONGREGATION, Anna, Shelby County, Ohio, by Rev. R. C. Lenski, page: 6. (Magdalena and Lydia Kuerschner are sisters).

INFORMATION RESEARCHED BY PHYLLIS (BRETCHES) BUCHANAN AND RICHARD PARKER

A family legend is that the reason one of the two surviving swander daughters {Rebecca or Susan} didn't marry is because she was enguaged to a man who went off to fight in the Civil war-and was killed. Alas his name is unknown.
