Maria Barbara Weidenbach Cronester
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1708, Germany
Death: Aug. 27, 1758
Adams County
Pennsylvania, USA

Maria Barbara Weidenbach Chronister, the daughter of Heinrich Weidenbach (1686 - 1754) and Anna Margrath Spon, was born in 1721 in Trippstadt, Palatinate, Germany. About 1740, in what is now Adams co, she married Johannes Michael Chronister. According to church records, this couple had at least 11 children. (See Johannes bio for their names.)

On the 19th of March, 1745, Barbara and Johannes, along with a group of neighbors, met at the home of Heinrich Weidenbach (her father) and formed the Lutheran and Reformed Union Church. (See sign in front of the church photo.) Records show that they were faithful church members.

Johannes died 30 Jan 1782, in Lancaster Co (now Adams Co) and Barbara died some time after that. We know this because in Johannes' will, it states how he is providing for his wife, Barbara, and lists his personal possessions that she is to have. They are buried together in the Lower Bermudian Lutheran Church Cemetery that they helped establish.
