Magdalena Elizabeth Bowers Derr
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 6, 1790
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1823
Cumberland County
Pennsylvania, USA

Dau of Sebastion Bowers and Magdalina Bear.
Married c 1820 Cumberland Co PA as 2nd wife of Daniel Derr and sister of his first wife.
The various records regarding the spouses of Daniel Derr indicate that the first spouse is Rebecca and the second Magdalena. However, two records can cause some confusion. The church record (St. Peter's) states Magdalena for the mother of Elizabeth (1821) and the birth certificate states Elizabeth as the mother. It's common for females to have two given names. In this case we can assume that the name of the mother is Magdalena Elizabeth.
