Maria Elizabeth Maus
I would like to know where you found the information for Maria's father, Lewis. I have found in several locations, her father was Frederick Maus born 1706 and died 1785. Her mother was Susanna Margaretha Weber. I have looked on Ancestry and found Lewis married to an Elizabeth Kingsley with a daughter Maria Elizabeth, but born in 1728 instead of 1738.
Below I have sited a couple of places where I have found Frederick her father. I would appreciate any information you have. Thanks Helen
1 Early Stoy Families Descendant Chart for Heinrich Wilhelm Stoy of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania,
Elizabeth Maus Elizabeth Maus was baptized 5 December 1738 in Zweibrucken Reformed Church, Zweibrucken.1 She was the daughter of Frederick Maus and Susanna Margaretha Weber.1 Elizabeth Maus married William Stoy, son of Johann Georg Steu and Anna Maria Jüngst, 26 September 1757 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co, Pennsylvania, (date of license - fee paid was 1 pound, 5 shillings).2,3

While residing in preaching in Philadelphia, he contracted what was considered an unfortunate marriage with a "stocking weaver's daughter," Maria Elizabeth, daughter of Frederick Maus, one of his members. The marriage cost a great deal of dissatisfaction in the congregation, and though the official said the church supported him, it resulted in his resignation and removal to Lancaster in October, 1758. He remained here until 1763, and was very active and successful in largely adding to the membership of the church. In the early part of the year 1763 he resigned the Lancaster charge and returned to Europe, the Amsterdam Classis reporting that he attended their meeting May 3, 1763. It is important that he went to Leyden and studied medicine, but Rev. Dr. Good states that the matriculation books do not reveal his presence there, but that he went to his native town, Herborn, and studied medicine with Prof John Adam Hoffman, who was professor at the University till 1773. He returned to America, probably in 1767, 4 in November of this year he wrote to Holland that he had returned to America; that he had several calls, and had concluded to accept Tulpehocken, the present Host church in Berks County. He was, however, not in good standing with the church authorities in Pennsylvania, who declined to again receive him as a member of the Coetus, or Synod, not because of any moral delinquencies, but because of his disputation with many of the ministers and for the further reason that he was regarded as a "stirrer up of strife." He left the Host church about 1772 or 1773 and moved to Lebanon and began the active practice of medicine.

Annie Linn in the Masonic Cemetery has the middle initial of J., and a different death year, per Ancestry. com. I have not made your suggested changes, as I don't believe they are the same person.

Cynthia Lynn Farley/Rockwell Rogers

Nice picture of the aqueduct...

I don't have more than the name of "Mrs. Cynthia Farley" and the marriage date in my files. I'd love to learn more. The 1900 census did not show her with Rockwell, so I did not know if they divorced or if she had died.

My e-mail address is jimmerjam-AT-aol-dot-com.

Best regards - Jim Rogers

William Henry Hackney
Would love to talk with you regarding Mr. Hackney. He would be my husband's great grandfather. Newspaper articles suggest he died in 1922 in Petaluma, CA. He is quite confusing. You can reach me at

Hope to hear from you.
